SGVegan_AUUM The Honest Nail Spa

Singapore’s first ever kid-friendly, cruelty free vegan nail spa has just shifted to a more convenient new location @ The Fullerton Hotel!

I have small nails. So my nails don’t look good when they are painted.

But Zi proved me wrong!

Check out my 1st ever gelish manicure:

SGVegan_AUUM the honest nail spa

Its the healthiest gelish mani ever as it uses LED lights (normal lighting) instead of UV light to dry! This ensures that your skin does not look old so fast…

They have an opening promo now where you can enjoy 30% off all Nail Services in a single-use receipt of S$100:

Singapore Really Really Free Market 31 Night 1 (SRRFM 31) [Facebook]
7pm – 11.30pm
51 Armenian St Singapore 179939
(In the shophouse where Select Books used to be)

Note: This event will be taking place over 2 nights. You never know what you might get!

Basically, everything is free! You can take whatever you need, but of course, it would be nice if you can bring something to giveaway too! The last time I went, I didn’t bring anything, but got everything I needed from others who brought and shared. I feel bad about only receiving, that I will be bringing stuff down this time! :)

Anyway here’s a brief background on the SRRFM concept:

Come share your stuff (books, cds, toys, food, etc) or skills (tarot card reading, hair cutting, poetry writing, singing, etc) by giving them to others who need them!

By sharing, we are reducing consumption and waste of our natural resources, re-using what we don’t need anymore by passing it on, and most importantly, showing everyone that there are more sustainable and loving ways to live.

Diane from Mekhala Living (May-Keh-Lah), will be bringing some awesome organic natural Asian sauces for us to try them out. Yippee!!

The Fitness Grocer has just been recently appointed the authorized distirbutor for Lenny and Larry’s products from the USA. (Think Subway cookie but healthier!) Pirapong will be bringing the top selling product of the Lenny and Larry’s range, The Complete Cookie for us as dessert! Woot woot! :)

Here’s the description of the potluck from Facebook:

Al fresco / indoor dining? Karaoke? Card games? You decide (legal, please)!

Choices of items to bring at least:
– 2-3 pax of dish (no onion & garlic) or dessert nom nom, and of course they have to be vegan
OR
– 5 pax of non-alcoholic beverages

Is organic food really free from pesticides? – A Discussion

1 Comment

Came across this article “Is organic food really free from pesticides” written by Andy Ho, Senior Writer to The Straits Times.

Andy ended the article with this sentence:

“Anyway, rinsing any produce thoroughly gets rid of most pesticide residues. So eat lots of produce, whether organic or not.”

While I agree that with his comment of eating lots of (fresh) produce, I was really disturbed that Andy chose to make some claims throughout his article about organic food. Thankfully, Jun Jie of Quan Fa Organic Farm (local) has addressed it here. I highly recommend you check it out.

On a side note, I was really interested to discover who is this Senior Writer, Andy Ho, given that he is a Senior Writer of a reputable main newspaper that is widely read in Singapore.

A search “andy ho the straits times” yielded 67,800 results, of which 6th, 8th and 9th results from the top 10 results shed light on the writer.

SGVegan_Andy Ho

According to akikonomu, Andy Ho’s educational qualifications are: an MBA from Yale and a PhD from MIT and an undergrad medical degree.

2 years later, in 2007, Akikonomu left a comment on That Bottle’s blog post on “Who is this Andy Ho?”:

SGVegan_comment on Andy Ho

In 2012, there was an open letter to Andy Ho on The Online Citizen.

While the articles are a bit dated, it just sheds enough light on the background of the writer.

I will not delve into the details, but I would like to urge readers to check the background of writers, and not just accepting the claims and conclusions made without further research. :)

iHerb – the cheapest and BEST supplement and grocery site

Leave a comment

iHerb is the place to get good quality (e.g. organic) supplements and groceries. For health and also, for the home.

For just US$4 shipping to Singapore, you can order up to 6.35kg of items – sent straight to your home within 2-7 days!

For the month of July (just a few more days to go!), there is free international shipping and if you apply my discount code of TNQ282, you get US$10 off your first order!

It is seriously the best place to order from (spoken from many ordering experiences). Everything is well-packed, and even glass bottles are wrapped well to prevent spillage. I ordered washing detergent and it was sealed in a ziplock bag in case of any spillage.

Here’s the organic living (vegan) probiotic I consume that is organic and full of living energy:
http://www.iherb.com/HealthForce-Nutritionals-Friendly-Force-The-Ultimate-Probiotic-120-Vegan-Caps/42221

Braggs Liquid Aminos (Soya sauce with amino acids inside) is so much cheaper compared to SG stores:
http://www.iherb.com/Bragg-Liquid-Aminos-All-Purpose-Seasoning-Natural-Soy-Sauce-Alternative-32-fl-oz-946-ml/5700

Also, Garden of Life raw superfood made from juice blends in easy capsule form for the busy person (whole foods, natural, and gives you lots of energy without filling/bulking agents):
http://www.iherb.com/Garden-of-Life-Perfect-Food-Raw-Raw-Green-Super-Food-240-UltraZorbe-Vegan-Capsules/18243

Do also check out ATTITUDE, the eco-friendly, plant derived baby home products:
http://www.iherb.com/ATTITUDE-Little-Ones-Concentrated-Laundry-Detergent-Fragrance-Free-70-Loads-35-5-fl-oz-1-05-L/52354

And the best of it all?

Organic essential oils are less than half the price sold here! (You get the exact same one at S$40 in store)
http://www.iherb.com/now-foods-organic-essential-oils

Anyway, hope you find iHerb a wonderful resource! Let me know if you need other recommendations (skincare etc). ^-^

Hurry and order now before the free international shipping offer ends! :)

The Shift movie

Leave a comment

I just watched one of the most inspiring trailers that I’ve ever seen. In this time of fear and decay, it is time to move towards a vision and breakthrough.

Check out the trailer here (you’ll be inspired).

 

Below are some of the quotes and phrases in the trailer that resonated with me:

Every one of us contributes towards this form of collective consciousness. We are a community of agents.

“A massive shift is building not only in our consciousness but in how we live. We’re reaching a critical mass of people who are taking a stand for a new way. We just need to recognise it.  And grow the movement, together.”

“The secret to change is not fighting the old, but in finding the power too fight for the new.”
Nate Howard, Academic Coach, Speaker

“Ask what makes you come alive and do that…
Because what the world need is people who have come alive.”
Howard Thurman, Civil Rights Activist

The shift on Planet Earth requires a critical mass of people saying YES to the inner self.

You love what you are doing and you have big dreams. Your impact is amazing.

We are all potential change agents. There is so much hope in the younger generation.

The sexiest thing in this world? Its being smart, thoughtful and generous.

Being, love, compassion and consciousness.

Change from INside out is only when you are INspired.

This film is different.  It’s being supported and funded by a movement – by people like you and me.

We can join together to tell this story, and get it in theaters and seen around the world!

Watch the trailer, feel moved, and jump on board!

We can make it happen. Lets accelerate the shift that is taking place!

Cheers

Amanda (SGVegan)

PS: After viewing the trailers, you may want to “post your story” by contributing your personal story. The 2 most voted stories will be shot, and included in the final storyline of The Shift movie. Isn’t that exciting?! :D
