BottomSlim Slimming Treatments Review

Hey everyone

I always have some concerns about my body although they are not so serious. 
It seems that the fats on my body doesn't seem to distribute equally even though my weight is within the BMI. Haha.

Okay, so my problem is my tummy. I have a lower bulging tummy that doesn't seem to go away and it's getting more and more serious these days. Problem because I started working and most of the time I'm actually sitting in front of my desk.

Do you have a similar problem like I do?
So recently I visited Bottom Slim to try out their slimming treatments.

Bottom Slim basically cater to your concerns by asking you to fill up some questionnaires to get to know more about your diet and health and which areas you are concerned with.

They would analyze what is your concern and recommend suitable treatments for you.
As each individual has different needs, they would customize the treatments to cater to your needs.

Before they start with any treatments, let's get changed!
Got changed and they took down my body measurements from waist all the way to your calves.

For my case, I will be doing 3 different treatments.
1. BottomTrim Therapy
2. Lazer Lipo Fat Loss Treatment
3. Slender Lite Therapy

BottomTrim Therapy
BottomTrim is a non-invasive sculpting treatment which effectively breaks down and soften stubborn fats accumulated overtime to regain more defined curves of your lower body. It can also help to sculpt your lower body shape and at the same time boost circulation to help in lymphatic drainage. Witness instant results of a curvier waistline and leaner thighs/perkier buttocks in just one session.

Benefits of BottomTrim Therapy:
1. Breaks down accumulated stubborn fats in areas difficult to lose
2. Improves overall blood circulation
3. Eliminates toxins
4. Liquefy fats
5. Firms up and shapes lower body for better definition
6. Smooth lumpy areas
7. Reduces cellulite appearance

This treatment is suitable for ladies who seldom exercise/walk, spend long hours sitting, have stubborn bulges around lower body and have cellulite appearance. 

For the BottomTrim therapy I would say it hurts a lot, those traditional cupping treatments or Diamond Peel facial treatment (if you've heard of) due to the suction, except it's on the body instead.
Pain factor wise I would rate it about 8-9/10. The pain did went off quickly after about 2-3 minutes as the body will slowly get used to it so I believe it will not be so painful after a few more sessions.

Each side of the tummy will take about 10 minutes for the therapy.
On the left side it was a little red after the treatment and you can see that there is more curve on the left waist area than the right side.

Lazer Lipo Fat Loss Treatment
A revolutionary and painless technology, the Lazer Lipo Fat Loss Therapy utilizes cold laser technology to reduce fat accumulation and promote spot reduction. This technology is able to penetrate the skin at a wavelength of 650nm to target the body’s adipose tissue, releasing free fatty acids, water and glycerol. Visible inches loss is achieved when these adipose cells are shrunk in size.
The pads are actually placed on my tummy and thigh area.

This treatment was very relaxing as it doesn't feel hot or anything when the pads are being placed. I almost fell asleep during this time.

Slender Lite Therapy

This treatment uses a Fat Burning Mask which helps to soften fat cells and speed up the slimming

Benefits of this treatment:
1. Improves tone, appearance and texture of skin
2. Boosts fat burning for easier expulsion
3. Reduces development of cellulite that cause sagging skin
4. Shapes, tightens and firms your lower body
5. Reduces stretch marks and restores skin elasticity
6. Advance lymphatic drainage and improves bloody circulation
7. Aids in detoxification
8. Makes body more sculpted and proportionate

A red light is used to shine on your tummy to heat up your body and helps to burn the fat cells.
The mask is very very cooling and I would say it doesn't feel uncomfortable only a little bit of heat on your body.

The whole treatment and consultation took around 2 hours.
1st hour for consultant and 20 minutes for each treatment.

We did another round of measurements and I've actually lost 7cm in total in just 1 session!
I felt that my waist is a little curvier and hip areas are slight smaller as well.
Although the difference might not be so big, I believed by doing a few more treatments you can definitely see the difference!

This is an illustration that they made for me based on my measurements lost.
You can see my problem area is actually my lower tummy area which they focused on during the treatment. Therefore it is a huge difference as compare to the other areas.

The Relic - Halloween at Scape!

Went to The Relic for Halloween at Scape last week!
It is easy to spot as they actually have an Annabelle doll outside the theater.

It is the real doll from the movie (And yes, I know the real doll doesn't look like this)
They flew it from the U.S specially for this event.

Here's a selfie with her. :)

I went there with Sujun, Kife and his friend Lynde and we went in as a group.

The haunted house is relatively small due to the space constraint however I would say the concept is quite interesting. They made use of 3D effects to make it look very foggy and spooky.
They do have the Annabelle theme inside too so if you're interested then go for it.

Scary factor is not very scary (for me) because I'm not the kind of person that will get freaked out easily. However for Sujun and Lynde, they were quite scared the whole time and didn't dare to wear the 3D glasses. Haha

Anyway, if you're keen to go for this event, do remember to quote "JASMINE" to get 25% off the tickets :)

Happy Halloween!

Escape Room!

Hello everyone!

Have you heard of the escape games that people having raving about these days? I finally have the chance to try out the escape room games which I did twice on the same day! Sound kind of crazy? Haha.

Basically for escape games, you will be given a story based on the theme you choose and you will try to solve the mystery by getting out of the room using the clues given in the room within a certain time frame. Depending on the theme and the place, it is around 45 minutes to an hour.
One clue will be given if you're stuck in the game.

I thought I could do a review about it since some of you may be interested to check it out.
For all escape games, you can't bring any cameras or phones along with you into the game as you know nobody would go there once you reveal all the secrets in the room right?

So I'm not going to be a spoiler and I will only tell you about the story which will be briefed to you before you start the game. Our first game was at Freeing SG located at Bugis +.

Our first theme was Unmasked. It is a story about female student, which is also your classmate who had gone missing after visiting her Biology teacher's gathering at his house. Your task would be to look for the missing student at your Biology teacher's house.
The difficulty level for this theme I would say is 4.5/5. It is one of the most difficult theme at Freeing SG. It requires a lot of thinking and calculations (yes, it's maths but simple ones) to get to the final answer to unlock the answers. It does add a little spookiness to the game, kind of like a mini-haunted house or mini Halloween party so be prepared! In case you're wondering, there isn't anyone hiding in the room waiting to jump at you so don't worry.

Anyway, sad to say that we didn't manage to solve the game. We almost did it, but stuck on the last password to unlock the door and when the time is up the game master will come in and reveal the answers to you.

To sum up for you:
Difficulty: 4.5/5
Spookiness/Scariness?: 3/5
Price: $28 per pax

Second game was at Xcape located at Bugis Village.

Xcape is slightly different from Freeing SG as you can extend your time in the game if you didn't manage to solve it within the given time frame. Not sure how much they charge for additional timing.

The theme we chose was Vampire Diary.
Some of you may have watched The Vampire Diaries drama. This theme is based on the drama however you don't have to watch the drama to play this game.
You will all be split into 3 teams, witches, werewolves and vampires and you solve the game based on the story given to you which I can't reveal it. :)

The time frame for this game is 1 hour.
After trying out both games, I would say the Freeing SG is more fun than Xcape.
For Xcape games, the answers are relatively easy to find except for some parts, if not you can always ask for clues. Two clues will be given.
What I don't really like about Xcape is the rooms are very small which makes it quite squeezy for 7 of us. Since the place is quite small there aren't much movements as well.
Nothing creepy as well.

To sum up:
Difficulty: 3/5
Spookiness/Scariness?: 0-0.5/5 
Price: $25 per pax

New Job, New Environment!

Hey everyone! 
If you've been following my Twitter or Facebook, you've known that I've actually change a new job!

It's not that my previous job is bad or what but just that I needed to get some time off that excessively OT which isn't going to be of much help for my school.

Oh and you know that I just started studying right? No? Haha
Yup, I will be studying part-time as I'm currently working full time! Such a busy and tiring schedule that I have. ): Anyway, work has been pretty busy since I started. Got to learn a lot of stuff which is totally different from my previous job. My colleagues are all quite friendly too! :)

Have also been neglecting my blog for awhile due to a major change in my lifestyle so now I'm pretty much done with adjusting my life so I'm back!

Will try to update more often every now and then.

Beauty treatments at Mary Chia & Oriental Spa Chamber

Hello everyone.
Was invited to try out Mary Chia's beauty treatments last week.
Mary Chia Holdings actually owns a few beauty salon which specializes in beauty & slimming treatments.

I tried 2 different treatments;
1. Coffee Detox Drainage Therapy at Mary Chia
2. Red Ginseng Guasha Facial at Huang Ah Ma, The Oriental Spa Chamber.

Mary Chia
I went to the NEX outlet for Mary Chia.

When I reached there, I was approached by one of the beautician and led to their consultation room.
They took some details about me, mainly about my diet and daily activities, etc.

I then proceed to take my measurements before the Coffee Detox Therapy.

Oh, Mary Chia salon does provide nail services too.

Coffee Detox Therapy is a slimming body scrub made from quality Arabica coffee seeds. The scrub is applied on full body, followed by hot blanket therapy. It helps with body detoxification and improves blood circulation.

I felt really hot during the treatment as the blanket was heated up and I was wrapped up so I couldn't move much. It made me perspire quite a bit which was a little uncomfortable so for ladies, please avoid putting makeup if possible!

After the treatment, I went for a quick shower to rinse off all the coffee scrub off my body. It made me feel really refreshed. My skin was a little red due to blood circulation but it went off after a while.

I went to take my weight measurements again, and it did lose some weight off but it is minimal. I believed that with more treatments, it will definitely shed off some pounds. 
Not to mention, it helps with detox and enhance blood circulation.

Usual Price for this treatment is $185.

Huang Ah Ma, The Oriental Spa Chamber
It is located in Porcelain Hotel, about 5 minutes walk from Chinatown MRT.
The Oriental Spa Chamber has a traditional oriental setting to it

The Royal Indulgent Red Ginseng Lifting Facial uses the traditional Guasha treatment to helps the body's blood flow circulation. Using special Guasha facial massage techniques, it enhances the skin’s ability to absorb skincare products, as well as promote overall lifting and firming. 
It is ideal for those with dull, tired-looking and/or sagging skin and suitable for all skin types.

The treatment was about 90 minutes and as you know, Guasha treatments are usually not so comfortable.
It started off with a full back Guasha, which uses the cupping method and drag across your back.
It really hurts so badly for me that I had to take a few breaks in between and try to calm myself down.
Usually my tolerance level is quite high but not this time. 
It then proceed with facial massage using the Guasha method again, but now with a jade to scrape the skin. For the face, it was still bearable except for certain parts which includes under and between my eyes and eyebrows area.

Overall treatment was not very comfortable except for the last part where they applied a cooling mask to calm down the skin and reduce any redness.

After the treatment I had quite a few minor bruising on my face, and my back actually bruised quite a bit.

However, my skin does feel a little more firmer and sharper as there was a lot of massaging on the face. It also looks more radiant, not as dull as before and bruises went away after a few days.

This therapy helps to relieve pain, stiffness & common ailments such as fever, chills, cough & nausea and balances the Chi in the body, promotes blood circulation & removes toxic heat for detoxification.
Therefore anyone who feels to "heaty" or unwell can consider doing this treatments. Just bear in mind the pain factor.

The Oriental Spa Chamber opens till 3am daily so no worries if you can't make it during the day.
Usual price for this treatment is $280.

Mary Chia is currently having a promotion for my readers!
Simply quote "Jasmine Ong" to be entitled to a first time trial @ $48 for each treatment.
