Living The Vida Glow-ca

Does ingestible collagen really work? My quick answer is yes, if you understand the distinction of hydrolyzed collagen – also known as collagen hydrolysate, collagen peptide, gelatine, gelatine hydrolysate or hydrolyzed gelatine – in which individual collagen strands have been hydrolyzed using heat and either acid or alkali solutions. Hydrolyzed collagen is produced from collagen found in the bones, skin, and connective tissue […]

[TAIPEI] oo4. FAST & FURIOUS

Sometime at the end of last year, I took a fast, furious and fulfilling trip to Taipei with Elizabeth, one of 2 people I’m so thankful to have met at Singapore Airlines, both of whom are no longer there but are always ‘there’ with me. Taipei is all about the night markets, shopping and foodie-hunts whilst making […]

10 SECRETS TO GOOD SKIN

Shh… I’m letting you guys in on what I do to keep my skin minimally flawed and young-looking. I’m not without vices – my lifestyle certainly does a great deal of harm to my skin. Constant travelling, difficult climates, dry-air in airplane cabins, late nights, sleepless days, junk food and irregular meals, social drinking and partying […]

TOKYO DIARIES 東京旅日記 III

Momi & Toy’s Crêperie モミアンドトイズ ホテルに戻って行く前に、モミアンドトイズで夕食のためにクレープを食べる。私は驚いている!店舗売りバブルティー。良い!バブルティーは、香港で一般的な飲み物だったが、今では非常にまれである。 トレンドは終わった。モミアンドトイズは、日本の優れたクレープのレストランの一つです。 An early dinner at Momi & Toy’s Crêperie before heading back to the hotel for a nap. Surprised to see bubble tea being sold in Odaiba! A couple of years back it was such a common sight in Hong Kong but nowadays it’s rare to find bubble tea stalls on the streets. […]

TOKYO DIARIES 東京旅日記

How to tell tourists apart from locals in Tokyo: spot the ones with ginormous bags of コンビニ (konbini – convenience store) buys! 観光客が日本で食品に多くを費やす。私が重い袋でお台場から帰って来ました。  今回は、多くのスナック、菓子、チョコレート、大福や化粧品を買った。私は家族が幸せに食べていることを望んで食べ物を買いました。 If ever I were to stay in Japan for a long period of time, snacks and various knick-knacks would consume me. My luggage came home filled with crackers, Starbucks matcha lattes, daifuku […]
