AhSoh does AuntBoxing unboxing of the Asus Zenfone 2 Laser (ZE601KL).

Now that we’re done checking what’s IN the box,
let’s take a look at the aesthetic aspect of the Asus Zenfone 2 Laser (ZE601KL).

Cheeky fellows who tell AhSoh that it ain’t the size of the boat, it’s the the motion of the ocean. AhSoh tell you don’t BULLSH*T lah! Of course size matters! The Asus Zenfone 2 Laser (ZE601KL) is 6″ lOoooOoOoog and full HD too! Perfect to watch all my Korean dramas in!
Review of Asus Zenfone 2 Laser (ZE601KL)

Display screen is made from Coning Gorilla Glass 4. This means that the screen is strong like King Kong, offering twice the drop-damage resistance of its predecessor, a 2.5X increase in retained strength and is 85% less likely to break in daily use. Just the thing for a clut like me!

Dual sim card slot is GREAT for a seasoned traveller like me. Tai tai like me, cannot afford to be out of touch you know…. There’s also a micro USB slot to expand digital storage.

Rear camera is a 13mp, f2.0 camera with laser auto-focus technology. Camera can focus in 0.03seconds! Perhaps even faster than our snipers in the commando unit leh!

Front facing camera is 5mp, f2.0 with real time beautification mode that makes me chio-er in every shot! Even 48 can also look like sweet 18 loh!

Now that we are done with getting practical gifts for your colleagues, let’s get down to serious business. Buying thoughtful gifts for the man in your life.

Here’s a list of 5 gift ideas to keep your man SEXY this Christmas.

1. Gym Membership ($99 onwards/month)
I know it’s a little late to work for Christmas, but hey, we’re actually looking at the BIGGER picture. *cough* Valentine’s Day! Personally love “multiple” gym passes where you pay a monthly membership and gain access to hundreds of gyms, fitness studios and activities. Get into a sexier body by movin’ and grovin’ together with your partner! Check out Kfit and GuavaPass.

3. Underwear $39 onwards
If you leave guys to be in charge of their own underwears, you would most likely see them walking around in “HOLELY” ones. Fashion isn’t a top priority on their list, comfort is. Let’s help our men stay SEXY with this gift of bare necessity. For the fun of it, buy some kinky ones too and see if your man is up for it! 😀

Hello Kitty Run 2015

-Media Invite-

Being 2 out of the crowd of 11,000 is crazy.
But hey, all for the love of HellOoOoOOooOo Kitty, it was somewhat worth it!

The second edition of Hello Kitty Run which featured the world’s most loved cats kicked off last Saturday (19 Dec ’15) at The Float. For the first time, the Christmas themed run was held at night where all the participants could revel in Singapore’s stunning city skyline.

We were all sweltering in the heat while waiting for the official flag off by Hello Kitty and Dear Daniel. Evey gentle breeze that was offered by mother nature was embraced with extreme gratitude! (All the bitching aside, thank God it wasn’t raining!!)

The mega cats appeared, waved, threw kisses in the air while flagging off the run.

The run saw us through many breath-taking iconic landscapes of Singapore. The Fullerton Hotel, Marina Promenade, Marina Bay Shoppes, Marina Bay Sands, Marina Bay Reservoir, Signapore Art Science Museum, Gardens by the bay, and the Singapore Flyer are just a few to name.

There were also 3 notable checkpoints. 1) UV (Ultraviolet) Zone, 2) Singapore Show Choir Academy who sang out of tune jingles and 3) Starry Night.

Arriving at the 3km mark was bitter sweet.
I lost count of the number of times Sophia asked “Are we there yet?”.

There were many opportunities to take the easier way out along the way. But we didn’t. We persevered and finished up 5km! We were greeted with bubbles and artificial snow when we arrived at the finishing line . Super duper magical!

There was more than just the run!

The Christmas carnival happening at the float with star performances by Hello Kitty and Singapore Show Choir Academy rocked the world outta some of the Hello Kitty fans!

Apart from just proudly displaying our limited-edition Hello Kitty finisher medal in the glass cabinet, I was happier to know that I’ve made some memories for Sophia to last her a lifetime.

Do kids really need vitamins to supplement their diet?

-Sponsored Post-

During my 10 years stint as a professional stay at home mom, I had the luxury of watching over my kids’ diet like a hawk. I used to think that as long as my kids keep a well balanced diet, I do not have to supplement them with vitamins and minerals.

But right now, after working full time, I am hardly keeping tab. Dunno what 垃圾 they eat at school or outside! I now see myself falling into the kiasu mom trap, looking endlessly for vitamins and minerals to supplement the kiddo’s diet.

But, each time I walk into a pharmacy I get overwhelmed by many different types of vitamins and mineral for kids. Not knowing what to get for my kids, I consulted a friend who is an expert in this field. “I don’t normally recommend any vitamin and mineral supplements for healthy kids with a well balanced diet. If you really want to supplement your kids diet with vitamin and mineral, a general multi vitamin supplement is good enough.” says Pauline Xie, Senior Dietitian, from National Healthcare Group Polyclinics. Pauline, who is a mother of 3 sits on the expert panel of young parents magazine too!

 photo Blackmores_zps98kw4rdh.pngAmong many goodies that Blackmores sent, I quickly turned my focus onto Blackmores Kids Multi. A vitamin and mineral formulation specifically formulated with 18 essential nutrients to help support children’s healthy growth and development.

Vitamin A, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B5, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Folic acid, Vitamin C, Vitamin D3, Natural Vitamin E, Biotin, Calcium hydrogen phosphate anhydrous, Potassium iodide, Ferrous fumarate, Magnesium phosphate, Manganese amino chelate & Zinc oxide.

James loved the strawberry-vanilla flavoured chewable, with no artificial sweeteners.

Then we have The Brain Boosters!
Blackmores Kids Fruity Fishes are natural raspberry-orange flavoured  chewable  omega-3 fish oil capsules that helps support healthy brain development and learning. Studies has shown that omega-3s helps support healthy mood and behaviour in children.

Whereas the strawberry flavoured chewable Blackmores Kids Mineral Minds is a mineral formula that may help support healthy brain development, learning and concentration in children.

It is recommended that both products should be taken together in order for it to harness it’s full potential.

And lastly, cheers to healthy gut…
Blackmores Kids probiotic power is specially formulated for children in a convenient sachet.

This special formula promotes “good” bacteria in the intestine which in turn helps regulate bowel movement and support the child’s immunity. Probiotics are also good for kids with eczema. James experiences lesser eczema flare ups after regular intake of probiotics.

Free Kids Probiotic Powder samples are available at Blackmores Flagship Store.

Blackmores is available at major pharmacies such as Watsons, Guardian, Unity as well as departmental stores. Visit Blackmores Flagship store at Parkway Parade, B-111.
