Slimming 101 is a new slimming boutique in Singapore. If you wondered like I did, Slimming 101 is indeed a sister company to well-known Beijing 101.
WHAT'S DIFFERENT ABOUT SLIMMING 101
I've always heard of TCM's role in slimming but never seen it in practice here in Singapore. I always wanted to go to a TCM clinic and ask them about it but on hindsight, it might be better to go to a slimming centre like Slimming 101 where they both the weightloss high-tech machines and a TCM doctor that focuses on slimming.
Now I know you're thinking, aiya, this is just another slimming centre... think again. What sets Slimming 101 apart from the many other slimming brands is that they focus on the use of TCM to help you lose weight and fat. Slimming 101 treats your weight problem from inside out.
♥ Treatments with "Qi" philosophy by a certified Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) physician
♥ No weight rebound
♥ Acupressure Body Massage
♥ TCM Diet Plan to improve body condition
♥ Latest technology slimming machine
♥ Use of botanical ingredients such as Rosemary, Lavender, etc.
It is a holistic approach to slimming. They are equipped with the latest machines for slimming and they have an in-house TCM doctor that provides acupuncture and other TCM treatments for total body weight loss too!
A TCM DOCTOR! What a surprise right? The doctor took my pulse (just like in the movies so exciting!) and somehow knew that I am not going to the toilet often enough. -.- So powerful. She also recommended for me to do acupuncture in my tummy and feet area to release toxins and help burn fat. How interesting.

MY TREATMENT THERE
At my recent trip there, I went for a hot sauna, followed by a Sea Salt Body Scrub to remove the dead skin on my body and allow for quicker fat burning. This was followed by a TCM massage which was focused on moving lymph through the body and help rid of waste in my body.
Our body's lymphatic system is essentially like our body's sewer system. These lymph vessels help us drain toxins in our body. This is relevant to weight-loss because if you have a lot of toxins in your body, your body will not be able to absorb nutrients or burn fat as effectively as it should.
My TCM masseuse is quite experienced. During the massage, she told me that the lymph nodes around my underarms are stuck and maybe that's why I haven't been able to lose more weight. She helped to press real hard on those stubborn lymph nodes. I think I should do this often on my own at home too.
Thereafter I was also put under a Thermal Hot Blanket wrap that made me sweat soooo much! I stood up dripping with sweat! Its like I ran 5km, LOL!!
At the end of the whole treatment, I lost 0.5Kg.
I've always heard of TCM's role in slimming but never seen it in practice here in Singapore.

Note that acupuncture or the use of machines for burning fat is NOT a miracle cure for your weight problems. My consultant at Slimming 101 stresses that to achieve good weight loss results from the program and maintaining your weight, treatment from Slimming 101 must be combined with healthy eating habits and regular exercises. The friendly consultants there will also be there to guide you on healthier food options.

One of the better parts of being a blogger is definitely sharing exclusive deals for you, my readers. And boy do I have a deal from Passage New York that will knock your socks off! I know it knocked mine off!
But first, I wanne share my experience at Passage New York with you.
So recently I went to Passage New York for a little treat. Did a facial and a body massage.
Passage New York offers a whole range of signature facial and body treats services, ranging from few signature facial treatments, eye and neck treatments, body massages, slimming and firming treatments.
A few days ago, the countergirl at Elizabeth Arden asked when I last did a facial because she noticed a lot of congestion in my pores which will ultimately lead to a pimple if I don't take care of it. I really don't have time even though I do have a facial package somewhere else.
Between blogging, working a demanding full time job, dating and pursuing my own hobbies, I really have very little time for myself. So it's a good thing I craved out some special "ME" time and headed to PassageNew York for some pampering.
And pampering begun from the moment I saw the entrance! Wow. I wasn't sure what to expect but this sure exceeded my expectations.
It looked like the entrance to a hotel!
GREAT AMBIENCE & UTTER SERENITY
I walked in and was quickly signed in and brought to a consultation room. It was quite a walk from the reception. It didn't look that big but girl, they had like a generous space area of over 8,000 square feet covering two floors with 23 rooms. I was lead to the lower floor and the consultant settled me in with some nice warm tea and asked about my skin condition.
Yes, yes I have been a bad bad girl, not going to facial for like 6 months (maybe more). To give her credit, she did not gasp in shock. Haha!
She recommended that I go for their Premium Intensive Facial because my skin had a lot of white heads and congested pores. This facial is suitable for very sensitive, congested acne prone and problem skin.
They have about 9 different facials but don't worry if you can't choose. The consultant will be able to advise you accordingly.
Even the toilet oozes serenity.
FACIALS, A GREAT WAY TO PAMPER YOUR FACE
So I was brought to my first treatment room for the facial. The therapist told me that cleansing might just be one of the most important steps of skincare. Cleansing well will help to clean your pores and allow your skin to better enhance all the skincare steps that follow thereafter.
She was really gentle in removing my waterproof mascara and eyeliner. She used a cream-based remover for my face and then a gel-based one.
Made my skin really clean but not one bit dry.
The next step was extraction. I was all prepared for this. I was prepared for some hardcore extraction. But it was all very gentle and controlled. She was also very detailed, removing even the very small ones.
Next they used a device that zapped the bacteria off my face before applying a hydrating ampoule and a clear ampoule for my oily and congested skin.
The double mask that followed was really soothing.
AND THEN I ENJOYED A GREAT MASSAGE...
Indulgent. Soothing, Relaxing.
It was everything you could ask for. The service was top-notch, making the whole experience very indulgent. My masseur was very polite and made me feel very comfortable throughout the massage even though I was topless.
All I heard throughout the massage was the silent birdsong that was playing throughout in the background. Completely soothing.
It was an aromatherapy massage that I had. She kneaded lavender-fragranced oil into my body and coaxed my tense shoulders into max relaxation mode.
If I had come earlier, I would have been able to use this jacuzzi! All their customers get to use this if they were here for an appointment!
My experience with Passage New York was like an escape into nirvana, amidst the busy CBD no less. In my two hours there, I only saw my consultant, facial therapist, and masseur and nobody else. It was quiet and peaceful.
You'd think something like that would cost a bomb but no, not at all. For starters, my readers get to enjoy the following for only S$98!
The complimentary bags are soooo nice! I am so tempted to get this deal myself too! And the $50 voucher! That's like, paying only $48 for the above experience! Remember to share this promo with your friends too k!

Yeh you heard it right - Bustline.
I'll be first to admit that I never thought I needed any form of bust enhancement simply because I have no major complaints about my bust. But boy was I really wrong.
In fact, what I did was to neglect it.
As I stood in front of a mirror top naked with Tokyo Bust Express's consultant, Angel, looking on at my busts, I was patiently taken through all the little things I should have noticed about my bust.
Problems with my bust include:
1) Saggy and will sag more if I don't take care of it now
2) A little outward pointing
3) Obvious signs of weightloss which lead to the saggy & loss of shape
I can't believe I didn't notice these about them before.
So Angel brought the skeptical me through the various steps for treatment that I'll be doing and it was pretttyyy convinving. Tokyo Bust Express prides themselves in offering natural breast enhancement without the use of any injections, pills or implants. Most people are skeptical about claims like these.
Tokyo Bust Express customises each treatment to the concerns of each customer. When she asked me what I was concerned about, I had to think of something to say cos really... I don't think about my bust at all!
So I came up with the usual, "don't want it to sag, want it to be more shapely and perky"... She asked whether would I like it to be bigger and well I said it didn't really matter. Most importantly is the shape.
Angel explained that Tokyo Bust Express uses natural ingredients combined with non-invasive techniques to maximize bustline and address other aesthetic concerns.
Phyto-Estrogen stimulates our hormones and is dominant in all of their key ingredients to help your bust appear bigger, firmer, and shapelier by building the breast tissue up and supplementing the breasts with nutrients.
Here's a list of ingredients that are exclusive to Tokyo Bust Express:
❤ Fenugreek Seed Extract (rich in photo-estrogens)
❤ Mexican Wild Yam Root (contains beta-carotene and diosgein which are powerful aids to optimal breachieveast development)
❤ Humulu Lupulus (hops flower helps in regulating production of hormones and facilitates development of mammory glands)
❤ Dang Gui Root (contains phyto-estrogens which balances a woman's hormone levels)
❤ Pueraria Mirifica (stimulates estrogen-sensitive breast tissues and the development of mammary tissues to give a fuller and firmer bust-line)
With prolonged treatment over time, you can achieve an enhanced size and shape that will not go away even when you stop the treatment.
See, our busts are made up of an outer layer of fat and an inner layer full of mammary glands. If you lose weight, you lose the fat but what will keep your shape and size for the long term would be the size of your mammary glands.
At Tokyo Bust Express, they focus on massaging these mammary glands to make them bigger for better shape and size. If you think this is not possible, well read on!
Look at the cozy treatment room waiting for me! Time to sink into 2 hours of relaxation, although I was too excited to sleep much.
I started off with a scrub that helped to cleanse and increase absorption of the creams that will follow. This was followed by a bust massage using Daizu gel to help firm, shape and tone. And there were like so many steps to this treatment but just by this second step of massage, my bust were miraculously lifted already.
It must be a miracle. BEING AMAZED was an understatement.
There was also a lot of wrapping and binding to push my boobs upwards and nearer and even a cupping device secured to each bust to give it lift and shape. All those arm scallops that we have, those are sadly part of our boobs and were "unintentionally" pushed to become arm scallops. Tokyo Bust Express helps to ensure those are pushed back towards the Bust area.
The whole treatment including consultant took about 2 hours.
Angel was honest to say that one treatment is not enough and that they don't guarantee the immediate results you see right after the treatment will last long. Prolonged, consistent attention would be required to achieve a longer term effect.
See, my results were quite astounding.
1) An almost 2cm raise to my bust (OMG?!) Rain drew a mark where my nipple was B4 the treatment on a piece of paper stuck to the wall & another mark after to measure)
2) I wore my bra pretty easily without having to gather the fats around into the cup
3) My bustline was VISIBLY less saggy and more perky after the treatment
4) See the 2 blue triangles up there, the top is where my neck is. My bust were both lifted a little and closer together after the treatment. My bustline also increased from 80 to 81cm!
Pretty amazing, and I am not even saying this cos this is an advertorial. Besides the results don't lie!
That's my therapist, Rain, and I at Tokyo Bust Express's NEWEST Outlet at City Square Mall. She's super friendly and we talked throughout the whole treatment!
I got to reiterate that I am REALLY AMAZED That there were VISIBLE, MEASURABLE IMPROVEMENTS in just 1 session. That's like a great way to spend 2 hours!
