Han Dian TCM Slimming Journey PART 2


Hello! I'm back to share with you my Slimming Journey with Han Dian TCM! I will share my experience on my First Consultation and my first ever cupping session!

First Consultation: 4th of July 2015

Just like everyone else, I had a mix of emotions, a little fearful, much excitement, but yet a little doubtful too.
TCM slimming has never been in my choice for weight loss and it has never been really advertised in the media, unlike slimming centers, which are So Widely Advertised, and Widely Reviewed.

Dr Huang Jing is my savior for my stubborn fats! First Impression of Dr Huang is that she is so radiant and cheerful! Not like those old TCM physicians who looks like they are out to cheat you of your money(oops). Dr Huang is very chirpy and is very welcoming, i did not feel pressured to be consulted by her.

Some of the Questions asked during consultation:
1. What are your eating habits?
2. How much water do you drink everyday?
3. How is your menstrual Cycle like? (for ladies)
4. What is your exercise level?
5. What is your target after the whole package? (20 Sessions)

I will now tell you my answer so that you can gauge how similar is your body to mine. BUT still, everyone's body is different so how my body lose weight will be different from yours la! (Disclaimer: All answers here are true to my own habits, in no way am i faking anything here, fake for what?)

1. What are your eating habits?
Ans: No Control! Hahaha, I really didn't care about my diet. I can just eat Rice Rice & Rice every day. I am a firm lover of Carbs. Example ah: Bread for Breakfast, Fishball noodles for lunch, Pasta for dinner.

2. How much water do you drink everyday?
Ans: I drink up to 2L of water each day. Plain Water hor, not Bubble Tea, Sweeten drinks.
I love Plain Water. Sometimes I drink Japanese Green Tea also la.

3. How is your menstrual Cycle like? (for ladies, duh)
Ans: My mensus is regular every month, at most +/- 1-3 days. Dr Huang says that it is normal for a difference up to +/- 5 days depending on each person's body.

4. What is your exercise level?
Ans: Almost Zero. Due to my lower back injury, I cannot do strenuous exercises. Which literally means most of the exercise I cannot do except Swimming and maybe brisk walking.

5. What is your target after the whole package? (20 Sessions)
Ans: Honestly, I didn't know what to expect from the effects of TCM slimming. So I said I wish to at least go down 10-15 KGS. Dr Huang said she will try her very best to help me but also have to see how much effort i put in la.

After the consultation, it was Weight In time! Deng Deng Deng~~~ AND MY WEIGHT WAS.......
79.2 KG! OMG. Not my Fattest in my life! Haha! My Fattest in my life was 82KG, After Chinese New Year this year, So heng I went down quite abit. But Still not satisfactory lor. Lucky I have Dr Huang to help me now! After the weight in, lets get on to my First Cupping Session in my Life. (very nervous)

Cupping, also known as 拔火罐 can help to reduce moistness in the body, activate the pressure points and clears blockage in the body to allow more circulation of the blood which will in turn boost metabolism. It will balance oneself and relieve tiredness and boost immunity as well. TCM treatments are non invasive and the root of their treatment is to adjust your body back to normal processes. It's not a miracle treatment where you will see results after just 1 session and expect it to last forever.

As you can see, there are certain parts that are redder or darker than some parts. Different coloured circles reveals different things about your body. Let me try to explain them in english, but if you can read chinese is better la. Haha!

Purple Black - Insufficient blood supply to parts of body, body is very "cold"

Purple with Black Spots - Very Bad Blood Circulation

Purple with dark and light spots - Rheumatism

Bright Red and warm on the circle - Feverish, Body Base is very Heaty, Body has Heaty Toxins

Dark Coloured Circle - High Blood Lipids, Insufficiency of Blood supply

Slight itchiness after cupping - Signs of Eczema

Blister, Moistness - Poor Circulation, Body has alot of "Moisture"

Purple Red, Dark Red - Blood Clots, Body is "Cold"

Hope you get a better understanding about your body on your next cupping session just by observing the colour on your body. So is cupping painful? On a scale on 1 to 10, My pain tolerance is 1 or 2, (1 being very low). But i feel that cupping pain is bearable, its more like a aching pain rather than a sharp pain. So If your pain tolerance is like me, you will survive! Congratulations!!

Doctor Huang was very patient with me asking her so many questions and she explained to me that TCM Slimming is good as the rebounce of the weight is not huge even if you indulge once in a while. I was whining in pain for my first session and my tummy area felt so tight, but it all feels so good at the same time because I'm on the way to a better and healthier self! Haha.

Stay tune to my next post on my Diet during my slimming treatment with Han Dian! You will be surprised.

Quote "Michelle" and get to try 3 Session of the TCM Slimming Treatment at only $120!
Han Dian's Telephone number is: 65542048 .

Doctor Huang's Consultation Times are every TUESDAY, THURSDAY AND SUNDAY!

With Love, M

Skechers Sundown Festival 2015!


All Thanks to Red Planet for the tickets to attend Sundown Festival - LETS ROCK!
I Had a wonderful night yesterday despite a unfortunate event that happened to me earlier in the day. :(

First up - Cheryl Loon from Singapore. Cheryl is a local Singer-Songwriter.

Next up was Farrago - They are an indie rock band formed in Singapore comprising of members from Singapore, Japan, UK & Australia. 

And we have Cashew Chemist - Who was playing when the skies were grey, or was it grey when they came out? Haha. They kept saying that they hope they don't bring the rain. lol.


First up: 放射空間 GROUND ZERO from Taiwan!
They are a 4-member Taiwanese Indie Band founded in 2010. They have since performed at major events in Taiwan and also attended the Spring Wave Concert 2014 in Singapore! They performed many songs, from Covers of pop Mandarin & English songs, to their latest song - 大海之名.

Next Up is local act - CARACAL. The 5-member group is hailed as Singapore's best Post-Hardcore Band. They certainly did Wow the crowd with their hardcore music.

Welcoming J-Rocks from Indonesia! They are an Indonesian Rock Band who are heavily influenced by Japanese Rock Style Music. Who would ever know Indonesian songs could have Japanese rock influence.

Then we have INKT from Japan. So sorry that I don't have any photos of them performing because it was raining a little and I did not want to risk my camera. But they are really so passionate to their fans!

As the night goes on, We have POTATO from THAILAND! They are a Renowned Thai Rock Band that has won multiple awards, with origins as far back as 2001. They performed many songs and one of them was their Famous "Ter Yang"

The Highlight of the night was EPIK HIGH from KOREA! They are also the last act of the night. The crowd went wild and everyone was jumping and screaming. Epik High did so much fan service - Spraying water and also signing on towels and throwing them to the crowd.

Thank you to Skechers for organizing this amazing concert to bring together the different acts from all over southeast asia. Thank you Red Planet for the tickets. I even had the chance to do a 1 to 1 interview with Taiwanese Group 放射空間 GROUND ZERO, so be sure to watch out for it here.

For More Photos of the different Groups, Please head over to my Facebook, I will upload all of them there.

Till Then, With Love, M
