Genius League Academy - Right Brain Training Lesson

Wednesday, April 12, 2017
Aaryanna has been going for Right Brain Training Lessons at Genius League Academy for awhile now so I just wanted to share our experience with em' so far.

Here's a picture to let you understand more about the difference between the left & right brain:
Initially I thought the classes would be really boring - I mean how fun can it be to train your brain right??? But no. Aaryanna was always tellin' me how much fun she had in class and being the really curious & kiasu mum that I am, I decided to pop by one of her classes to pay her a visit and was quite taken aback.
Just look at how cheeky she looks??? Train the brain also can train until so happy one ah???

The classes are pretty small (Aary's class has about 5-6kids in total). HOWEVER, IMHO, the teacher talks quite fast. I'm not sure if it's supposed to be that way? In order for you to grasp the concept of learnin' faster? 

They conduct FREE one-to-one consultations for parents and children for you to understand more about the hidden power of the brain and what you can do to help you and your child manifest their peak potential.

Binge watch DBS Sparks series with Deliveroo

Tuesday, April 11, 2017
Sparks, by DBS, is an industry-first mini-series that follows a group of young bankers as they navigate work & personal lives. Inspired by true stories, they challenge the status quo to go above and beyond when solving unusual client challenges.

Since launching in February 2016, Sparks Episodes 1-5 and their trailers have altogether garnered more than 42 million views and over 1.7 million digital engagements across the region.

The latest episode: New Beginnings, launched on March 17, explores how a social enterprise makes use of technology and innovation to bring education to children in low-income communities. Inspired by the true story of Zaya Learning Labs, Episode 6 depicts the challenges Zaya faces as it disrupts the education landscape and closes the educational gap to provide world-class learning to such communities.

---

In this pilot, Claire Lee, a relationship manager, is introduced to cocky, Oxford- educated Jasper Wu, her new colleague. Sparks fly when they meet. A reluctant Claire is asked to show Jasper around, and then to visit a potential client together.

A potential client, Lindsay, is in a predicament. Claire and Jasper get to know each other a little better, and evaluate Lindsay’s plan with the rest of the team. Will they manage to successfully solve Lindsay’s issue?

The team manages to help Lindsay secure her loan, but an unforeseen development throws them off and tests them further. The young bankers hatch a plan to solve the new issue, but with a big player in the way, will they be able to win over their community?

A new boss and an old acquaintance set Team DBS on a new mission. When an unexpected situation tests their mettle, they must dig deep and find their worth.

An impossible decision threatens to tear the bankers apart. And in their quest for the ultimate solution, they found something more valuable than they ever imagined.

The bankers embark on an incredible journey. Together, they challenge traditions and work to change the future of an entire village. Will they prevail?

World Allergy Week with Phillips Air Purifier Series 2000

Saturday, April 8, 2017
In a bustling urban city such as Singapore, air pollution is inevitable with traffic congestion and seasonal haze that looms over the city. While we are aware of the pollution outdoors, a little known fact is that even on non-hazy days, the air within our homes can be more polluted than outdoor air!
Studies show the air we breathe indoors can be up to 10 times more polluted than outdoor air. Gasp!

With the new Philips Air Purifier Series 2000 (AC2882/30 and AC2887/30), you can take control of the air quality indoors and protect against pollution and allergens at home, for long-term relief from polluted indoor air.

The Philips Air Purifier Series 2000 features three smart auto modes for the cleanest air possible – Pollution, Allergen, and Bacteria & Virus – which allow you to adjust the air purifier’s performance according to your specific needs. The range also has a best-in-class filtration system, while the AC2887/30 model comes with a professional-grade AeraSense sensor that detects and adjusts rapidly to pollutants.

The Philips Air Purifier Series 2000 series is designed to be a convenient solution for everyone in the family to take control of indoor air health. Its patented AeraSense technology promises the accuracy and performance of a professional sensor in detecting harmful airborne particles, even those smaller than 2.5 micrometers, to deliver cleaner air.

For extra reassurance, the Philips Air Purifier Series 2000 measures PM2.5 levels in real-time, with a color ring and numerical displays that show at a glance whether the air you are breathing is Healthy, Irritating to Sensitive Groups, Unhealthy, or Very Unhealthy.

You can also choose from the three auto modes and select the one most appropriate for your home based on the type of airborne pollutants present –  Pollution mode, Bacteria & Virus mode & Allergen mode (which is the one I've set mine to!)

The Air Purifier Series 2000 comes in two models – AC2882/30 (RRP: $599.00) and AC2887/30 (RRP: $699.00) – and is available at leading electronics stores, major department stores, hypermarkets and selected authorized dealers. For more information please see www.philips.com.sg/air.

Sucremor - Baby Skin Care

Thursday, April 6, 2017
SUGAR IS GOOD FOR SKIN?!

Sugar is excellent at keeping moisture in and keeping bacteria out. It also balances the sebum to water ratio in skin to keep skin healthy! This is something I have never known, or expected???

Although a baby's skin is known for being soft and smooth, it's thinner and much more delicate than an adult's skin. A baby's skin protective barrier functions aren't fully developed so it's imperative to build the foundation of your baby's skin health from day one.

A baby's skin has low moisture retention since sebum amounts are low and babies tend to sweat alot. Their skin tends to dry easily and is weak against infection. Thus, it is important to moisturize and clean a baby's skin.

Testing has confirmed that Sucremor's Hokkaido grown beet sugar is exceptional at retaining moisture and keeping bacteria out. 
Baby Skin Organic Sugaring Bath

Every single one of their sugar grains are coated with edible plant oils. All Sucremor's products are non-toxic and made with 100% natural food grade ingredients. They are all gentle & safe for everyday use even on sensitive skin & diaper rashes!
