Keeping FIT and having FUN...

Some lenglui's just love exercising and hitting the gym. I think... sugar_cupcakes is totally the kind who dreads exercising (a self-confess couch potato... huhuhuhu - apart from surfing). But we totally dig having toned bodies and having that healthy glow... HOW NOW?

Some tips on getting some FUN workout in a bum-lenglui's life:

  • Choose a sport you like
    • None? LOL... then see below
  • Always do something you enjoy. If that ain't happening, incorporate some workout while you're doing something you enjoy
    • Watching the telly while digging into a tub of Baskin Robbin's don't count - FAIL
    • Love shopping? LOL... Actually WINDOW SHOPPING COUNTS! But hey, remember to walk multiple rounds from one end of the mall to the other... (Think of it as... umm... surveying multiple stores to get the a good bargain).. REPEAT -> It's WINDOW shopping... lol
    • Eg; Try doing some squats while watching your fav drama series... Hohoho.. you'll eventually become the queen of multitasking
  • Get a media player to play your favourite MV dance video. 
    • Eg; KPOP SNSD's - The Boys MV
    • Dance to the MVs for about 10 mins in front of the telly every morning
    • Shake your boomboom in the comfort of your own home - you can even do it in your PJs... muahahaha...

  • Get a skipping rope - Convenient and effective CARDIO workout
    • DAISO sells cheap skipping rope with skip-counter for RM5
    • 5-10mins per day of the skipping rope gives you the CARDIO workout you need
    • Trust me... even with 200 skips, you're going to start sweating
    • That tummy issue... is going to start looking much better in 2 weeks... hohoho...
    • Lenglui's with knee issues, best avoid this... skipping can be hard on the knees

  • Twist your house chores a little
    • Doing circular stretches for your feet while washing the dishes can be pretty good for loosening your ankle joints
    • While hanging up your laundry, do some short squats with catchy music in your background
    • Get those mop-slippers... slide a round the house LOL... while the floor cleaning with your feet
  • Make use of your shower time
    • Do simple stretches in during your shower..  Eg; Stretch your arms and loosen your wrist joints
    • Having a hot shower can be relaxing... but if you're living in a tropical country like Malaysia, have your usual hot shower, then turn the temp to cool for a couple of mins... It's super refreshing and gets your blood circulating!

If none of the above appeal to you... TIME TO FIND ONE THAT DOES! 

Astalift Jelly Aquarysta - oh wowww....

The Way to Cool Jelly to YOUNGER Skin

As iwannabelenglui always says... no matter what skincare you apply on your face... the difference would not show as much as your hormone levels, diet and lifestyle... BUT..... hey, this product is voted NO 1 ANTI AGING SERUM IN JAPAN IN 2011... No harm trying out huh?

We broke the less is more rule when Astalift Jelly Aquarysta made its d├ębut in Jusco KL a couple of months ago... Muahahahahahaha... You may think this weird but... this brand is the baby of FUJIFILM. It's scientific base on how the product works is just too geeky for us giddy heads to fathom. So I'll stop right there.. And go see the Astalift site HERE.

If scientific bases is not your cup of tea, look at the BEFORE-AFTER eye pic from this lenglui's blog:

Conclusion After First week of use:
  • The jellylike texture is super interesting -Feels a little sticky right after absorption but, that goes away once you apply your moisturiser on top
  • Mild fragrance of Damask Rose (a little like Naruko's Rose range)
  • But, you see immediate radiance on skin once applied - WE ARE IMPRESSED
  • Lets wait till half the jar 40g is gone for the next update
  • Checked the ingredients and yes, it has Parabens... (there goes iwannabelenglui's so-called principal to go organic)
  • Retails in KL at RM348 for a 40g jar - but they do have a smaller jar
  • And so, its been more than half the jar used - Updated 21st Oct 2012:
    • These are like direct collagen boosts on the skin
    • These are LIFE SAVIOUR for lenglui's with breakouts who crave for anti-aging serums
