KettleBlock – World’s SMARTEST Dumbbell

Homie Mark Enriquez back from Singapore was doing some window shopping when he stumbled upon the KettleBlock™ at the AIBI store in Parkway Parade.

I had actually been thinking about purchasing a Kettlebell for a while now but they come separately in different weights – 5, 10 & 20 pounds – which isn’t ideal for me as I’d like something more versatile like the Bowflex®.

So when I saw the KettleBlock™, it was like a dream come true. Now I’m not a hardcore weight trainer or anything but this is something I’d definitely like to experiment and train with.

But with a price tag of SGD348 for this baby, I think I’ll stick to the free weights at the gym for now.

9 Essentials In My Gym Bag

Bagspace.sg sent me an email a few weeks ago and asked if I could share “What’s In My Bag“, in response to my posts about “What’s In Your Shopping Cart?”. So here it is! My favorite bag of the moment is this Faux Leather Shoulder Bag (COACH-inspired) from YesStyle.com . I love that you can carry it on your arm, over your shoulder or even as a sling bag (it comes with a changeable strap). In fact, I love it so much that I have another one in baby blue (no longer available).

IN this bag, you will find at least 9 of my bag essentials…

1. Tiffany & Co. aviator shades –  I’ve had this for a year now and it goes with everything I wear, can’t go wrong with it.

2. Adidas water bottleGotta make sure I stay hydrated!

3. Adidas training glovesWouldn’t want the smell of iron or skin peeling on my palm when I’m doing weight training…

4. iPod Shuffle + headphonesMusic keeps me pumped when working out.

5. Shiseido powder + brushJust so my face won’t shine like a mirror…

6. Bath & Bodyworks hand sanitizer (Japanese Cherry Blossom) Do you have any idea how dirty public place (or even your own home) can be? Best to keep your hand sanitized, especially if you have a habit of touching your face or eating/picking food with your hand.

7. Abercrombie & Fitch ‘8’ Perfume My favorite scent!

8. Victoria’s Secret body lotion (Honeysuckle Belle) – Daily moisturizing keeps your skin firm, healthy, and smelling good.

9. FOCAL Deodorant from Boots… – This is the best deodorant, ever! I always get my friends to get this for me when they visit Thailand. I wished they had Boots here. They have a few quality house-brand products. This deodorant spray in particular is great because it’s fragrance-free, hypo-allergenic and all natural (Ingredients: Alum, Allantoin, Niacinamide, Propylene Glycon, Aqua) – it’s almost like spraying water, except you’ll smell good all day 🙂

Grocery Shopping: Chrissy’s List

Chrissy (originally from Singapore but now lives in Melbourne) sent in a photo of her groceries last weekend and proves that even though she likes her dessert, she knows how to shop for healthy food. Plus points for getting the essentials such as bananas, muesli, yogurt and even the fresh/smoked salmon and chicken mince – having these foods stocked means you’re always set for breakfast and preparing a meal high in protein is as easy as pie. Although I am curious… Since she specifically noted that the milk was only for baking, where are the flour and eggs?

1. Bananas
2. Mangoes
3. Thai basil
4. Lebanese cucumber
5. Roma tomatoes
6. Fresh salmon
7. Smoked salmon
8. Chicken mince
9. Muesli
10. Yogurt
11. Milk (for baking)
12. Bread

Grocery Shopping: Tashination’s List

Tashie (Read: Tashionation.com) has been so busy with school and exams lately that she doesn’t spend enough time at home to cook for herself daily. She recently just sent me a photo of her mini grocery shopping this week and I’m glad to know this girl is eating healthy despite all the stress! Are you sure you skipped the snacks for late night studying, dear? Just how do you do it? 😛

So here’s what she bought:

1. Soya Milk
2. Organic berry yogurt
3. Honey turkey cold cuts
4. Organic Tofu
5. Assorted greens

I like the healthy choices you made with the soya milk (Read: Soy Milk vs Milk), yogurt and assorted vegetables, although I’m not sure if this photo is complete! You have the cold cuts but where’s the bread and lettuce? Perhaps the next thing you should share is the first meal you prepare with these groceries!
