Mini Confession #7 - I don't mean it !

Mini Confession #7
I don't mean it !

This post is done because I'm just feeling like blogging .
And also , I think I can use this to apologise , as well as to show others something about girls .

If I ever been mean to you , or " not my usual self " ; I apologise !
95% of the time , I don't mean it X_X
I HOPE that I would be able to speak the minds of some girls out there ..
And , to let guys better understand your girl / friends .

I can't tell you SPECIFICALLY what girls go through , neither can I represent ALL girls . This post is only from MY perspective , and how I see things .

If a girl has SERIOUS PMS ( like me ) , being around her / dating her can be a trainwreck .
I'm not sure about other girls , but this is what I go through every month .
I could be all happy and carefree today , then sobbing about some random thought tomorrow .
I could be feeling like a relationship / friendship is about to end today , then feeling loved the next day .
I could be feeling worthless today , then feeling beautiful tomorrow .

This , is probably what it looks like .

I tend to get very emotional sometimes , be it because of PMS or not .
If you are my Facebook friend , you may realise that I sometimes post loving updates / upsetting rants / emotional statuses / desperate things .
You may also realise that I sometimes delete posts and updates after some time .

Take my relationship for example .
I'm really sweet and all with my boyfriend these days , because I'm feeling really loved by him .
Just last week / the week before , we were on the verge of breaking up .
And yet , 10 minutes after we quarrelled ; we were back to sweet-texting each other .
Until now , I don't know what happened that day ; but I guess we understood each other , and he knows how I can get emotional sometimes .
Some time before this , I was getting emotional with my boyfriend ; about our future , our marriage , our children .

Some information taken from a website !

Premenstrual symptoms are a natural part of the menstrual cycle , affecting most women at some time during their lives. If your body doesn't react strongly to its monthly hormonal changes, you probably have mild premenstrual symptoms or none at all. But if you have one or more mild to moderate premenstrual symptoms that disrupt your work, relationships with others, or sense of well-being, you are said to have premenstrual syndrome (PMS) .
PMS symptoms vary greatly from woman to woman and cycle to cycle, and they can range from mild to severe. Some women note that their symptoms are worse during times of increased emotional or physical stress. Of the more than 150 symptoms that have been linked to PMS, the most common are listed below.

Physical symptoms include:
  • Breast swelling and tenderness.
  • Bloating , water retention, weight gain.
  • Changes in bowel habits.
  • Acne
  • Nipple discharge when nipples or breasts are pressed. (Any leakage that spontaneously happens when you aren't pressing on the nipple should be checked by a health professional.)
  • Food cravings, especially for sweet or salty foods.
  • Sleep pattern changes.
  • Fatigue, lack of energy.
  • Decreased sexual desire.
  • Pain. Common complaints include headache or migraines, breast tenderness, aching muscles and joints, or cramps and low back pain prior to menstrual bleeding.
Behavioral symptoms include:
  • Aggression.
  • Withdrawal from family and friends.
Emotional symptoms include:
  • Depression, sadness, hopelessness.
  • Anger, irritability.
  • Anxiety
  • Mood swings.
  • Decreased alertness, inability to concentrate

Severe symptoms

If you have severe premenstrual mood swings, depression, irritability, or anxiety (with or without physical symptoms), you are said to have premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD). Symptoms generally subside within the first 3 days of menstrual bleeding. This severe type of PMS is not a common problem. It happens in only about 5 out of 100 women.Women with PMDD symptoms tend to report that they:
  • Have negative behavior and feelings of hopelessness.
  • Feel guilt and shame.
  • Feel they have lost control over their lives.
  • Believe they are mentally ill and fear the stigma of mental illness.
  • Have poor job performance or missed workdays during the premenstrual period.
  • Feel distanced from family and friends.

Premenstrual worsening of other conditions

You may notice that symptoms of other medical conditions get worse between ovulation and the first day of menstrual bleeding-this is called menstrual magnification. The conditions most affected are:
  • Mental health problems, such as depression, anxiety disorders, bipolar disorder,    schizophrenia, and eating disorders.
  • Endometriosis.
  • Migraine headaches.
  • Seizure disorders.
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
  • Asthma.
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome.
  • Allergies.
  • Anemia.
  • Thyroid disease.
I hope these information can help girls find out whether you have been PMS-ing , and for guys to understand what girls are going through when they are " not their usual self " . Also , if you find out that girls around you are PMS-ing , please DON'T irritate them ; for your own safety ><

Through Gerwyn's Eyes #12 - Dream big .

Through Gerwyn's Eyes #12
Dream big .

Everyone has their own dreams , and they will be different from someone else's .
Some dream for peace , happiness , love , freedom ..
While others dream for fame and fortune .  
I have my dreams too , and they change from time to time .
I would like to share my dreams here , cause who knows ; someday in the future , I may look back at this post and realise that I fufilled some of these dreams .

Let's start from the basics . I'm human too , and I do have dreams that are similar to yours .
I dream of being rich . I dream of being famous . I dream of standing on stage someday , and have people looking up to me . I dream of having people know my name . I dream of having that devilicious figure .

Time to dig up my thoughts from my heart ! I have feelings too :P
I dream of getting married , having children . I dream of being friends with enemies . I dream of having the forgiveness of people who I've let down . I dream of having a life where I don't have to hurt alone .

Dreams about the future ? Who doesn't have them .
I dream of having my own SUCCESSFUL business . I dream of somehow , helping some beneficiaries through my business . I dream of giving back to the society . I dream of red hair for Poly . I dream of my home , and my life in the future . I dream of not having health issues get in the way .

Short-term dreams ? How much simpler could it get .
I dream of doing well in O's . I dream of starting up Livejournal soon . I dream of hanging out with my friends . I dream of joining dance classes . I dream of going to the beach with my closest friends . I dream of being with the people I love the most on my birthday . I dream of a Sweet 16 .

Don't judge me based on my dreams , or what I type . At the same time , remember that we may sometimes have materialistic dreams . There is no shame / crime in having them , but we have to be humble and always remember what we have . We may have materialistic things that we want , but sometimes ; but others dream of having , can be something as simple as peace or having meals to eat .

I know of people dreaming to be magicians , singers , dancers , engineers , lawyers , doctors , designers , police officers etc .. And I dream of being an entrepreneur / singer / model someday . There is NOTHING WRONG in what we dream of becoming . Because , I witness people around me fufilling their dreams .

If you're still reading , this is my message to you . If you have a dream , DREAM BIG . Dream of being that famous chef with 5 Michelin Stars , that model which has a contract with Victoria Secret , that singer with a voice that is #1 Worldwide . If you want to dream , dream big ; don't care about who may get in your way . In fact , YOU are the only one standing inbetween you and your dreams .

Don't believe me ? I'm living proof , and I'm sure you would realise you are too . I've dreamt about being a model / singer / dancer / entrepreneur . Yes , I dream big ; but does that mean my dreams are ridiculous ? I've been approached by people to join the SAME Modelling Agency ( Yes , I heard about scams and all , but still ; they wouldn't approach random people right ? ) THRICE . I thought to myself , I've been dreaming about this . But yet , I told myself I'm not photogenic , I'm not thin , I'm not confident . So , I let myself get the better of me ; and threw that dream away in a corner . I seen singing competitions EVERYWHERE , I seen people get famous . But yet , I told myself I sound horrible , I can't sing , I will just humiliate myself . So , I convinced myself to push it aside . You get my point , I hope .

I have friends ( not just one ) that we share our dreams together . And sometimes , they tell me that they feel the same way . I mean , they feel they are NOT GOOD ENOUGH . No , I'm not some successful person , nor someone who been through hell and all . But , I've gone through a fair bit of obstacles too ; and I know how much SELF CONFIDENCE and DREAMING BIG can impact your life . 

My message to everyone : We all have dreams . Be it big or small , they carry that spark of hope in us . If someone tells you that you can't do it , prove them wrong . If you get in your own way , remind yourself that everyone , even you , can do it . Always be confident in yourself , but don't be over-confident . Find the balance between having self confidence and being humble ; I promise you that you will find life so much better . If you have troubles , always remember you have friends around you . And I'm always open to anyone who needs a listening ear :) Whether you know me or not , you could talk to me if you're troubled ^^ Facebook me , if you have my Facebook contact . Text me , if you have my number . Email me , my email is just at the side bar . We all have dreams , but we all need people to be there to cheer us on too ; nobody can do it alone .

Slim & Fit #3 - Slimming Detox Plum / Prune

Slim & Fit #3
Slimming Detox Plum / Prune
Have you ever wanted to slim down naturally ?
Tried every possible way , but still can't seem to shed those extra weight ?
Want to cleanse the toxins in your body but not sure how to ?
If you answered YES to any of the above , read on !
If you answered NO to all of the above .. read on anyways :D


The similarity between the Detox Plum & Detox Prune :
- they help to control your weight
- detox your body
- soothes your intestines
The difference between the Detox Plum & Detox Prune :
- one is a plum , the other is a prune !


Direct Translation from the advertisements given above :
1 packet a day solves all issues about fat !
8 hours : Soothes the intestines , promotes detox
10 days : Cleanse your body , improves skin condition
30 days : Gets rid of oils , controls your weight , slims the waist and stomach

Authenticity : The ones with the seal are original , beware of other imitations .

The supplier is a registered license company with Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority of Singapore ( AVA )

For the benefit of those who don't understand Chinese :
The video is stating why the Detox Plum works . It is made using 48 natural ingredients with advanced technology , which contains an PIC enzyme that helps to promote bowel movements . One plum is equivalent to running on the track for 2 hours as it contains HCA enzyme that stops fats from building up , which lets you eat whatever you want without getting fat . Why is it that eating Detox Plum works better than other fruits ? This is because other fruits may have high sugar levels , which will adversely make you fatter without noticing . Detox Plum includes an acid that helps burn fat , which takes up 98% of the plum , which is 30 times better than normal fruits .

For the benefit of those who don't understand Chinese :
I'm glad that I'm able to introduce Detox Plum today , as it is by far the safest way that can help everyone slim down ; and all it takes is just one plum a day . Why is the Detox Plum so effective ? The original ingredient is a plum imported from Thailand , which uses the latest technology that can incoperate active substances into the plum . This makes the plum naturally sweeter than it is originally . The HCA substance helps to prevent fats from building up , which can help to promote the burning of fats ; which eventually helps to cleanse your body of all the oils and unhealthy substances that have been trapped inside . Thus , you don't have to starve yourself or do anything special to your diet , and through a plum a day ; it helps to burn off your fats .

Green Plums :
- Delicious , fleshy and succulent plums that are low in calories

Lotus Leaf Extract :

Advice from seller :
- Take 1 piece of Detox Plum and drink 300ml of water after consumed .
- Effects depend on individual , but would be roughly 3 - 4 hours after consumption . Hence , prevent taking it at night as it may wake you up in the night to detox .
- If it's your first time taking it , do not worry if you have discomfort . It is normal due to the hardened waste on your intestinal wall that the plum is helping you to clear :)
- Do not consume if you're allergic to any of the ingredients .
- Do not consume if you're breastfeeding / pregnant .

My personal experience :
I'm like most of you that are reading this extremely long post now , looking for something simple that can help aid in weight loss . I found the Detox Plum / Prune when one of my customers asked me to help her purchase it . I decided to order a few boxes for myself , and I gave one box of Plum to Lovely Items today . She reviewed that it actually worked , so I decided to try the Detox Prune to make sure both of the items are safe for consumption . I ate the Prune at 5.30pm ; and went to the washroom at 9.30pm , exact 4 hours later . I'm not sure whether it works , but it seems alright to me :) I've asked permission to resell it , and it has been granted .

DETOX PLUM ( 7 pieces per box ) - $10 meetup / $11 mailed
DETOX PRUNE ( 6 pieces per box ) - $10 meetup / $11 mailed

- If you are unsure whether you have allergic reactions , please do not buy it ; I'm not held responsible .
- If you have any enquiry , you can ask me on Facebook - Gerwyn's Sevenths


1) Should I buy the Detox Plum or Detox Prune ?
I didn't upload the details for the Detox Prune as it is very similar to the Detox Plum . The only difference is because the Detox Plum does not work for some people , so there is the Detox Prune . However , both of them works :)
2) Can Muslims eat this ?
The product is made in Fujian , China as well as Xiamen , China . I've enquired the seller about this , and they said that it is safe for consumption as it's a fruit . However , if you're worried as there is no halal sign ; I advise you not to buy it :)

3) Must I eat this everyday ?
I don't think you'd need to , but it is recommended :) However , do take note that you should eat it 4 hours before the time you are home / free . For example , I ate it at 5.30pm as it takes roughly 3 ~ 4 hours to take effect ; and I had meetups till 8pm or so . Thus , when it took effect at 9.30pm ; I was already at home :)

4) What are the ingredients used in the products ?
I will be uploading this on Facebook !

5) Is the price considered expensive ?
From the price given by the seller ; I'm earning less than $2 per box . Do note that I would still have to pay for the shipping costs , so I'm not earning much . This price is just to allow everyone to benefit from the same product ; not for me to earn :)

Slim & Fit #2 - Dangerous

Slim & Fit #2
Dangerous .

Have you ever wanted to slim down , but you're just too lazy to work out 3-4 days a week ?
How about not even having the time to give yourself a relaxation exercise ?
I have .

And , I learnt the hard way that sometimes ; long-cuts are better than short-cuts .
For all the people that wants to try slimming foods and gels , I have no personal experience about the flipside . However , I'll share with you about this brand of SLIMMING PATCHES .

Seen this before ?

I have . This is what the one that I ordered looks like when I received it :

Mine is on the right .
Well , the instructions given was to leave it on your navel / thighs / arms overnight and remove them when you're awake . I have stomach problems , and I don't really mind how my arms looks like ; so I pasted one of each of my inner thighs .
However , one of the patches on my right thigh fell off at night ( it wasn't very sticky at all ) . The next morning , my left thigh felt rather itchy ; and , I found rashes .
The following image may make some people feel slightly uncomfortable , just scroll over it .
This is somewhat how it looks like for the first few months .
You survived the picture ! Okay , sorry ><
It was really itchy . And I went to search google ; and this is what one of the websites wrote .
Note: skin abnormalities or the use of the phenomenon of skin irritation, please stop using it immediately.

So I figured that I've an allergic reaction to it , and after a while ; I found out that other people are also having this allergic effect . Thus , I decided to share it to warn people .
This is my thigh now ; 5 months after I used the patch / 6th June 2013  .
I'm not trying to stop anyone from buying the slimming products ; or even other types of items . I'm just trying to warn that you have to be careful while using them .
If you know what ingredients is in the product , and you are not allergic to them ; use them by all means :) However , if you are unsure whether you are allergic to any of the ingredients , I advise you to do a skin irritation test / just avoid using the product .
It still goes without saying ; exercise and a healthy diet is the best way to STAY HEALTHY , and possibly even lose a few kilos ? That , I stand by it !
xoxo ,
NOTE : I HAVE SENSITIVE SKIN , which is probably why I have this reaction . There are many people that used it without any problems , in the end ; it's still up to you .
