a day with Juu!

Juu came over to Pasir Ris!! 
we went collecting branches for our photoshoot project! 
i was on a constant lookout for potential branches these few days while jogging! 
We took trash bags and went collecting under the sweltering weather!
poor Juu couldn't fully appreciate the beauty of nature
as she was melting under the hot sun hahaha, felt so bad ><
bagful of fallen branches! :D

haha we looked as if we were doing Corrective Work Order :p

The place i grew up in! :D



check out the size of it! :O

We then started on another of our mini projects, which is a hemp lamp! 
haha we underestimated the amount of glue we needed thus we couldn't finish it!
arghhhh partly because we couldnt find a smaller sized beach ball.. 
but at least we were getting somewhere :) 



oh and btw! do check out her DIY blog, Operation Overhaul
lotsa pretty stuff that you can make yourself :D
share it with your friends if you like what you see!

Haters gonna hate

they'd find fault with you no matter what you do
so just learn to treat them like they are invisible :)

sigh..


 feeling really down today..
perhaps its because the holidays are coming to an end..
and i've yet to go overseas :(
or maybe its just the lack of sleep...
oh wells

after satisfying our cravings,
we went to take a stroll around IKEA

spent a longgg time at the frames section
trying to decide which frames look best with my paintings ><

Carrots~

late night snack!


Benefits of Carrots

1. Improved Vision
Western culture’s understanding of carrots being “good for the eyes” is one of the few we got right. Carrots are rich in beta-carotene, which is converted into vitamin A in the liver. Vitamin A is transformed in the retina, to rhodopsin, a purple pigment necessary for night vision. Beta-carotene has also been shown to protect against macular degeneration and senile cataracts. A study found that people who eat the most beta-carotene had 40 percent lower risk of macular degeneration than those who consumed little.

2. Cancer Prevention
Studies have shown carrots reduce the risk of lung cancer, breast cancer and colon cancer. Researchers have just discovered falcarinol and falcarindiol which they feel cause the anticancer properties. Falcarinol is a natural pesticide produced by the carrot that protects its roots from fungal diseases. Carrots are one of the only common sources of this compound. A study showed 1/3 lower cancer risk by carrot-eating mice.

3. Anti-Aging
The high level of beta-carotene acts as an antioxidant to cell damage done to the body through regular metabolism. It help slows down the aging of cells.

 4. Healthy Glowing Skin (from the inside)
Vitamin A and antioxidants protects the skin from sun damage. Deficiencies of vitamin A cause dryness to the skin, hair and nails. Vitamin A prevents premature wrinkling, acne, dry skin, pigmentation, blemishes, and uneven skin tone.

 5. A Powerful Antiseptic
Carrots are known by herbalists to prevent infection. They can be used on cuts – shredded raw or boiled and mashed.

 6. Beautiful Skin (from the outside)
Carrots are used as an inexpensive and very convenient facial mask. Just mix grated carrot with a bit of honey.

 7. Prevent Heart Disease
Studies show that diets high in carotenoids are associated with a lower risk of heart disease. Carrots have not only beta-carotene but also alpha-carotene and lutein. The regular consumption of carrots also reduces cholesterol levels because the soluble fibers in carrots bind with bile acids.

8. Cleanse the Body
Vitamin A assists the liver in flushing out the toxins from the body. It reduces the bile and fat in the liver. The fibers present in carrots help clean out the colon and hasten waste movement.

9. Healthy Teeth and Gums
It’s all in the crunch! Carrots clean your teeth and mouth. They scrape off plaque and food particles just like toothbrushes or toothpaste. Carrots stimulate gums and trigger a lot of saliva, which being alkaline, balances out the acid-forming, cavity-forming bacteria. The minerals in carrots prevent tooth damage.

10. Prevent Stroke
From all the above benefits it is no surprise that in a Harvard University study, people who ate more than six carrots a week are less likely to suffer a stroke than those who ate only one carrot a month or less.
