Loving the Silent Tears takes us on a magical train ride around the globe through the eyes of an older woman and a young man who are guided by the train’s mysterious conductor on an incredible journey. The audience will be taken on a breathtaking journey to 16 countries across six continents through music, theater, dance, and poetry, as well as the exceptional artistry of Broadway stars, pop music stars, and top international artists.

The spectacular, one-time red carpet premiere presentation of Loving the Silent Tears was directed by Tony nominee Vincent Paterson (Michael Jackson’s and Madonna’s world tours) and choreographed by Emmy winner Bonnie Story (High School Musical 1, 2, 3).

An international musical promoting cultural unity and inner peace, Loving the Silent Tears musical was held at Los Angeles’ Shrine Auditorium on 27 October 2012.

Leave a comment

There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to clothes, much less our health.

Introducing Personal Health 360, where we can make our health personal. ph360.me makes our health accessible to ourselves – our personal body profile and lifestyle preferences will reveal everything from the foods likely to increase our metabolism, to the environments and careers most conducive to our wellbeing.

PH360 will suggest changes for the way we think, eat, play, live, work and love based on our unique phenotypic and epigenetic makeup.

Dr Matt Riemann, who holds Bachelor and Masters degrees in applied human sciences and is a lecturer and clinical educator at Griffith University and the University of Queensland in Australia, is an internationally recognised speaker, author and social entrepreneur in the fields of personalised health and future medicine. He delivers a message of uniqueness, that we all have different genes, environments and lifestyles and as such need to eat, move, love, live and play accordingly.

Riemann was diagnosed with a terminal illness some 9 years ago, has spent the past decade gathering an international team of collaborators who are leading scientists, researchers, medical doctors and health professionals with expertise in the fields of anthropometry, endocrinology, molecular biology, epigenetics, phenotypology, nutrigenomics and neuroscience, to tackle this seemingly impossible task.

He recently addressed the United Nations on personalised health, has been invited as a health advisor to the US Army, and in March 2015, delivered a TED talk in Los Angeles on the concept of applied epigenetics and the controlling of one’s own future.

And last year in 2014, Riemann launched the world’s first personalised health tool, PH360, based on gene expression, combining concepts of Chinese medicine, Ayurveda and conventional medicine to produce a platform with the ability to predict the exact foods, fitness, environments and lifestyle – or epigenetic factors – to make intuitive decisions for one to stay healthy and avoid disease.

This is the 1st time PH360 is launched in Asia by Riemann, where he gets to share more about PH360 through The Future of Health.

There are 2 events, one in the afternoon for the general public (anyone interested in topic but do not have any medical/nutritional qualifications) and the evening are for people who are generally aware about health matters, including health care professionals.

Afternoon session
The Evolution of Health, 20 May 2015, 2.30-5.30pm

Evening session
The Future of Health, 20 May 2015, 6.30-9.30pm
http://futurehealthevents.com/conference/singapore/

The ticket price to attend is USD97.  But, Catalyst Health Asia has specially arranged for every participant to also receive a PH360 token worth USD197* (only in Asia!) so they get to try the assessment for themselves. This is worth much more than the ticket price of USD97. (*T&C apply).

Participants are also encouraged to bring a laptop/tablet to participate.

Both the events will be held at M2 Academy, located within Orchard Gateway, that is opposite Somerset MRT. Here’s the map.

So what are you waiting for? If you have an interest in yours or a loved one’s health, register now. I will be attending the evening event so see you all! :)

[The Fitness Grocer] GoLo with the Go Lo Spreads

Leave a comment

Hi everybody!

Sorry I’ve been away from blogging for a while now. Been caught up with work and life…I’m not going to come up with excuses for the lack of posts since mid-Feb. I will, compensate by sharing with you all an exclusive discount for a vegan Nutella-like spread on The Fitness Grocer.

The Fitness Grocer is an online retailer based in Singapore, started by student athletes who are now taking the business full stream onwards, with the dream to ensure that active and busy people have a convenient, healthy and nutritional source of ready-to-eat food and snacks.

I had previously tried their Vegan Subway-like cookies, that are packed full of protein. Known as The Complete Cookie® under Lenny and Larry’s brand. I was told that The Fitness Grocer is the first in Singapore to retail this cookies range. So why not ditch the Subway cookie and get this delicious huge all-natural cookie instead? Suitable for everybody and not just vegans.

Lenny and Larry_The Complete Cookie Info

 *Psssst. I just checked their website and there is special deal if you buy a box of it. My personal favourites are: Double Chocolate, Pumpkin and Oatmeal Raisin!*

Now the main purpose of this post is to share about The Fitness Grocer’s latest offerings, which, if you are already following me on Instagram (check out my latest Instagram posts featuring my baking conquests on the top right column of the page) and Facebook, you would have been aware that I announced the news about the vegan Nutella-like spread in early February. So for the latest happenings, do follow me on Instagram and/or Facebook!

Back to the vegan Nutella-like spread, why do I call it Nutella-like? It is known officially as the Go Lo Dark Hazelnut Spread.

Well, because, at first taste, after having not eaten Nutella for many years (at least 6 years since I went vegan), it reminds me of Nutella, so much. I went to heaven there with every bite. However, if I just eat it out of the bottle (not kept in the fridge), I feel as if there is an oily texture as the spread is quite watery. I made sure I kept it in the fridge, although the bottle said not keep refrigerated for the best taste. But do note that if left out in the open on warm toasted bread, the spread does turn watery. I ensured that I ate it all up immediately right after spreading it on my bread. Yum.

The Go Lo Dark Hazelnut Spread is unlike the creamy-ness of Nutella but yet its still Nutella-like in the taste. Hence my mind remembers it as the vegan Nutella-like spread. A plus point is that the Go Lo Dark Hazelnut Spread is so much healthier, because its SUGAR FREE! ohmygosh.

And how much sugar is there in Nutella? Here’s a visual comparison:

SGVegan_Chocolate Spreads Sugar Comparison Visual

As seen, the Go Lo Dark Hazelnut Spread is so much healthier, especially in terms of the sugar level. No cows are hurt in the process too. Woohoo!

A look at the ingredients explains how the sweetness is achieved with Pure Joy added in the ingredients! :D

SGVegan_Go Lo Ingredients

SGVegan_Go Lo Ingredients List

As you can see, the other spread from the Go Lo Foods brand that I sampled is the Go Lo Almond Butter.

Initial taste-wise, I was not as drawn to the Go Lo Almond Butter as compared to their Dark Hazelnut Spread initially simply because it tasted different. Like the kind of I-am-not-used-to-this-taste kind of weirdness. But as time went by, I found myself preferring the Go Lo Almond Butter over the Dark Hazelnut Spread.

Well, I must admit I didn’t know what Go Lo Foods meant on the bottle “60% more protein than JUSTIN’S”, since the first brand that popped in my mind is the Skippy brand! Haha, I know its so irrelevant as Skippy is a peanut butter spread, and not an Almond Spread. Ohmans.

But anyway, the Go Lo Almond Butter contains pea and hemp proteins in them. And its so good I must say. The taste and texture of it once spread on bread is heavenly. So smooth. It has come to be my long time favourite out of the two.

For more variety, I spread each slice of my toasted bread with the Go Lo Dark Hazelnut Spread and the Go Lo Almond Butter. Then I paste the slices (one Dark Hazelnut, one Almond Butter) together. Super yum max.

The Go Lo Dark Hazelnut Spread is currently retailing at S$16.90 on The Fitness Grocer while the Go Lo Almond Butter is currently retailing at S$18.90. If you get both in a Go Lo Bundle, its only S$34.90!

So here’s the special deal I mentioned right at the beginning. Simply type in the code “AMANDAGOLO” when checking out. SGVegan readers get to enjoy an exclusive 10% discount :)

Do click on any of the links to get to The Fitness Grocer website. The code is valid till end April, so that means not many days left! :)
