Finding The Intimate Moment Through Others

Finding The Intimate Moment Through Others

Melissa’s Table Top Talk Episode 32 In this episode, I speak to Yian Huang who started his podcast “The Intimate Moment” as a way of learning how to get out of his shell and talk to others while also learning more from them.

My Ultherapy Journey

My Ultherapy Journey

About 6 months ago, I went to Privé Clinic for an Ultherapy session to get rid of my double chin as well as to get a bit of a lift because age and gravity does things to your face and skin, I tell ya. But I didn’t blog about it when I first had my session because I wanted to do a full vlog and here it is! Please always go to a good mediaesthetic clinic for your consultation first before you decide which procedure to do. If you’d like to read more technical stuff regarding the Ultherapy, you can...

Here are some reasons why: I don’t have to give excuses as to why I don’t want to go out I don’t have to mull over what to wear to go out…especially on days where I don’t feel the best about my appearance (also…no bra!) I get to binge-watch all my dramas! I don’t need to feel guilty about my laziness in ordering food delivery or even courier pickups from my doorstep Because I don’t have to leave the house,...

My Dilemma Over The Wellness Insider

My Dilemma Over The Wellness Insider

As many of you already know, I founded The Wellness Insider 3 years ago and I now have a dilemma. To close it down or not. After reading this post by Mumbrella’s content director on why they’re closing Mumbrella Asia, the points he made really hit home. Firstly, let’s be practical. The Wellness Insider is a business and if a business doesn’t make any money, it does not make sense to keep it afloat. In these 3 years, the only time that I’ve ever broken even was when I started teaching Kombucha Workshops and I thought that I could finally...
