Zen Beaute @ Kuchai Maju

So last Saturday my friend Carmen Lim and I went for a 90 minutes of Full Detox Treatment + Lymphatic Drainage Massage + Ginger Tummy Massage + Air Spa + Body Analysis for only RM39 ( Seeing what i just typed here, it looks like a really good deal right? Only RM39 for all of the above. My friend and I were really excited because we wanted to detox, i mean the air that we breathe everyday, facing our computers most of the time, the detox would really help.

So i will explain to you the procedure of how it works(ed), and my experience. 

First, they interviewed me of my daily lifestyle such as what time do I eat my breakfast, what time do I sleep, how often do i face the computer, you get the flow. I thought it was really good that they actually ask all this stuff, it is like getting to know your body before proceeding with the treatment. After that I had to stand on this weighing machine look-a-like, to measure body fat%, water %, muscle mass %, etc

Second, I had to strip till my underclothes and lie on this Air Bed which will squeeze your body and then release. This was to help with the body's blood flow. According to the person assisting me, she said it's for people who does not exercise regularly. Honestly in my opinion, i thought the air bed was useless. Because:
- when you wear the stuff on your legs, arms, and stomach area, it does not fit 100% nicely on your body.
- my hands/palms/fingers felt cold and sensitive as the air bed was holding tightly on my wrist to control the blood flow. Whenever the first cycle is done, the bed would release all the air, and then start again; but it did not give enough time for some blood to flow back to my palms/fingers. 
- my feet felt so uncomfortable, like I said it was not perfectly fit. One side was more covered than the other, i kept changing positions of my feet. 
After about 4 to 5 cycles i only sweated very little. 

Third, was the Lymphatic Drainage which was pretty painful. When they massage, they are like pushing to one direction most of the time, to get rid of toxins and lymphs I guess. 

Fourth, Ginger Tummy Massage, it was the MOST PAINFUL massage for me because I have gastritis and weak stomach due to sleeping late at night and not waking up on time for breakfast, etc. It was terribly painful! So people rest early, wake up at the right time for breakfast. :P

The massage ended with a short shoulder massage. 

Over all the experience was a good experience except for the Air Bed. I would rate my overall experience 3/5. 

Short tips: Do not listen to their weight loss advise. Why? This is what they told me and my friend.

1. The lady told me my biceps muscle is quite big, and i told her cause i've been doing my biceps. Then she told me to not do that, by doing so i won't lose weight. Then i said to her, if i can't do any arm workout, how do i lose my arm fats? I expected her to say cardio, but this is what she said(translated): "for your triceps, put your elbow up and behind your head and just give a pull and stretch." 
I was like... you got to be kidding me... well i didn't say it, just thought it, haha. 

2. The manager told my friend that her legs has alot of muscles. So my friend told her cause she jogs, then the manager asked, why do you jog? My friend said cause she wanted to lose weight. The manager then told her, no jogging will make your legs bigger cause of the muscles. My friend then asked, if it's so, how do i lose weight? ................................................................................................... she said take diet pills

So yeah ladies and even gentlemen, go for the detox, go for the massage, but never listen to their weight lost tips. Here's their pricing.

Eye Make-Up: Mermaid Blue

Hello everyone! Hope everyone had a good week and a better week ahead. :) 

Sometimes when I'm free I would test out my eye shadows to practice my make-up skills, by mixing and matching colours to see how it'll turn out. To be honest, most of the time, the first trial looks quite bad, and usually only the second eye makeup would look better. 

So here is what I put together recently. The reason why I named it Mermaid blue, is because firstly it's Blue, duh, secondly the outcome of these mixed colours reminded me of fish tail. :P Hahaha... weird i know... but oh well. Hope you all like this eye make up. :)

A total of 5 colours were used to create this look.

Surprisingly, the eye make-up works with your hair tied up too. :)

PS: Purpose of these pictures taken is to show the eye make-up, which means there were no intentions to cam whoring. :p

Cleanse Your Kidneys with less than $1.00


Years pass by and our kidneys are filtering the blood by removing salt, poison and any unwanted entering our body. With time, the salt accumulates and this needs to undergo cleaning treatments and how are we going to overcome this? It is very easy, first take a bunch of parsley (MALLI Leaves) and wash it clean.Then cut it in small pieces and put it in a pot and pour clean water and boil it for ten minutes and let it cool down and then filter it and pour in a clean bottle and keep it inside refrigerator to cool. Drink one glass daily and you will notice all salt and other accumulated poison coming out of your kidney by urination also you will be able to notice the difference which you never felt before. Parsley is known as best cleaning treatment for  kidneys and it is natural! 

Even though it seems natural, too much of something is always bad. :)

Coconut Water Benefits

Coconut Water Benefits
Young Green Coconut
Coconut Water is one of the healthiest drinks around. People adore the natural flavor and its all-natural appeal. While new to America,coconut water benefits are no surprise to tropical islanders and Latin Americans that have been drinking it for centuries. Coconut water products range from pure coconut water to flavored varieties to those with real pulp. Aside from its natural, sweet taste, this thirst-quenching drink is also popular thanks to all of the coconut water health benefits that we’ll discuss here.
The fact that coconut water has many health benefits is not at all surprising since coconuts themselves also do wonders for our bodes. So, what are the health benefits of coconut water? First, let’s talk about its nutritional value. After understanding its nutritional properties, you’ll easily understand the various health benefits.

Coconut Water Benefits – Nutrition – Electrolytes

Coconut water has the five electrolytes that are already in our bodies. This includes potassium, magnesium, phosphorous, sodium and calcium. All of these electrolytes help in certain functions of our body. Also, being a natural health drink, coconut water does not contain any preservatives, fats or cholesterol. This makes it a good drink for everybody regardless of your conditions.
For instance, coconut water contains a considerable amount of potassium – about 295mg – far more than any other sports drinks and energy drinks, which contain only about 117mg of potassium.

Electrolyte Drinks (Like Coconut Water) Help Lower Blood Pressure

One thing you may not know is that hypertension, or high blood pressure, is oftentimes caused by an electrolyte imbalance. Many hypertensive patients only worry about sodium, but all of the electrolytes take part in the “blocking” of ducts in our veins. Fortunately, coconut water has all five electrolytes, unlike your favorite sports drink.

Coconut Water Benefits – Nutrition – Low Sugar Content
Studies have shown that drinking coconut water directly lowers blood pressure in 71% of people![1] So if you’re hypertensive, start each day with a bottle of coconut water, which will help balance your electrolytes after your overnight “fast” that occurs when you sleep and use up your electrolytes.
Coconut Water Benefits - Low in Sugar
Low in Sugar!
By now, you should certainly know that processed sugar, especially high fructose corn syrup and fructose in general, are responsible for the massive growth in obesity rates happening in the Western World.
While coconut water does have some sugar content, it is nowhere nearly as potent or dangerous as that of sodas, sports drinks, or even processed juices like apple juice that contain no fiber. According to the chief of United nation’s Food and Agriculture, coconut water contains about 5mg of Natural Sugars whereas all the other drinks contain about 10-25mg of refined sugars.
These refined sugars wreak havoc on your body due to their simple nature, cause your blood sugar levels to spike, thus causing an insulin spike, and thus finally causing that horrific process known as fat storage. Stop drinking sugar-infested drinks that rot your teeth and cardiovascular system and start drinking some natural coconut water each morning.

Coconut Water Benefits – So Healthy it Can Be Used Intravenously

In tropical countries, coconut water has long been used as a remedy for all types of illness. In an emergency, it can even be used as an intravenous treatment for immediate hydration![2]

Coconut Water Benefits – Healthy Skin

We’re always concerned with the way we look – and our skin is one of our most shining examples of having vibrant health. There’s good news here – Coconut water also has an effect on the skin. Here are some benefits of coconut water for the skin:
  • Coconut water adds moisture to our skin. Many lotions and facial moisturizers have this in their formulas – and those are great – but they also only work on the outside. Drinking coconut water hydrates your skin from the inside. Aside from this, coconut water also helps remove excessive oil in the skin and in the scalp. Again, this is why so many conditioners and shampoos make use of coconut water.
  • Coconut water can cure acne scars. This is possible thanks to coconut water’s cleansing and toning effects on the skin. Unlike the above bullet point, we’re talking about topical treatment now. You can apply coconut water on your face everyday then see how it goes


Coconut Water Health Benefits – Weight Loss / Fat Loss

Coconut Water Health Benefits - Weight Loss
Best Coconut Water Ever!
I’m going to put it straight to you here. Coconut water does contain sugar, and too much sugar promotes obesity, especially if eaten at the wrong times. However, coconut is far healthier than the alternative sport drinks, sodas, and even commercial fruit juices and juice boxes.
First off, coconut water contains fiber, which slows the absorption of the sugars. This is critical, since other sugary drinks and even fruit juices do not contain fiber, and those fast-digesting sugars lead to fast fat-storage.
Second, there is simply less total sugar in coconut water than there are in the other drinks mentioned above, so if you substitute it for your daily sports drink, you will be taking infar blood-sugar-spiking sugars.
  • Coconut water contains a high amount of water along with its electrolytes. As we all know, water keeps our bodies hydrated. As a result, the metabolism rate in our bodies remains high. Due to this fact, water is a big help in maintaining one’s health. This is also the same with coconut water.
  • Coconut water has a good effect on thyroid function. There are people that can not burn fat because of thyroid issues; drinking coconut water can be good for them.
  • Coconut water does contain many calories compared to the other commercial drinks in the market.

Coconut Water Benefits – Hangover Prevention and Remedy

Other coconut water benefits include:Another controversial use of coconut water is for hangovers. You might find this use very weird. However, people say that coconut water is actually very effective in preventing or curing hangovers. When you drink too much, chances would be you’ll urinate frequently. As a result, you will get dehydrated and deplete your electrolyte stores in the process. There are two of the main causes of hangovers. Once you drink coconut water, it will rehydrate your body thanks to the water and replenish electrolytes more than all commercial sports drinks.
  • Coconut water cures or prevents kidney or bladder stones. Some people say that when you drink coconut water on a daily basis, the best results are achieved.
  • Coconut water has anti-viral, anti-fungal and antibacterial properties.
  • The pH of coconut water is isotonic with our blood. Because of this, coconut water can be used as a plasma substitute in extreme emergencies.
  • Coconut water contains lauric acid; a substance that can be found in baby’s milk. This is why it can also be used as a substitute to processed baby milk.
  • Infants are given coconut water to get rid of their intestinal worms. This is as effective as the anthelmintic medicines in the market. But since it is natural, it is actually much safer.
  • Cholera patients are also recommended to drink a glass or two of this natural drink; it may be helpful for them since coconut water contains albumen.
  • Coconut water is a great and natural way to prevent acid reflux.
  • It also aids in digestion.
  • One of the benefits of coconut water is it also improves blood circulation.
  • It also boosts your immune system.
So there you have it, the benefits of drinking coconut water. From blood pressure to hangovers to skin health – this delicious stuff has it all!
