My Slimming remedy - almost

After five weeks in Australia, my waist line grew tremendously in length, in fact, because I’m pear shaped, it’s more of the hip and thighs that I’m worrying about.

I couldn’t even fit into my oh-so-hot Levi’s jeans anymore. T_T

One of my most used slimming remedies is green tea.

And I don’t mean green tea as in this!

Or this!

Or even this!

I mean drinking the tea itself, GREEN TEA green tea.

I don’t know why but for some reasons, drinking lots of green tea manages to suppress my hunger, the flavor of it makes me consume more liquid than I normally do; which is a good thing, because it helps remove toxins in my body and prevent water retention.

Trust me about those water retention problems. I have it every month with period. And I do gain 2kg overnight. -.-

Blame it on water retention


Normally I cut down on my food intake, not completely, but I watch what I eat. Do more exercise and eat more fruits.

However, the hardest part of it all was to control my sugary intake. Being a sweet tooth and an extreme chocolate lover, I CANNOT live without chocolate, living a week without it will take my life away (it used to be a day, but thank god age catches up and I think I kind of grew out of that extreme sweet tooth phase).

But there are days when I really cannot take not having sweet things in my mouth. I drink yoghurt drinks.

Not just any yoghurt drinks though. I always go for the Dutch Lady 0% fat yoghurt drink (note: 0% fat :D). There’s also self made smoothie which can’t be attained all the time since I don’t normally bring my juice extractor and blender wherever I go. So pre-packed yoghurt drink is the way to go for me for a long time.

DL 0% Fat Yoghurt (AE)


And I don’t mean just one. I usually stock up.

DL 0% Fat Yoghurt


This drink was introduced by my brother to me, well, indirectly. He loved yoghurt drinks and every time he stocked up in the fridge, I would steal a sip or two (or a glass or two, la la la). I’ve grown extremely fond of the strawberry flavor.

Anyway, if you’re a lover of Dutch Lady 0% fat (yay!) drinking yoghurt, there’s some very useful news for you. (well, not useful literally, but useful in the sense that.. well.. you’ll see)

The Dutch Lady 0% fat drinking yoghurt now looks like this…

light bulb


Haha.. Kidding.

That’s just a metaphor. It’s actually called Shine now.

ohh.. my strawberry baby has raspberry inside… I like raspberry~


Or if you prefer, Shine 0% fat drinking yoghurt to be exact. So if you couldn’t find your usual favorite yoghurt drink, look for a white “shine-y” bottle.

And you know what? Ironically, the new version contains green tea extract. Talk about perfect for my slimming procedure. :D

I’m very taken by this new design though. Whitish, loud, and fruity~

But I just found out recently, after moving to Bangkok, that that THAT…

THERE’S NO SHINE IN BANGKOK!!!!! (Or so far that I have searched!! OMG SOB!)

milk product
No where to be seen!!


milk product 2
Nil! None!


NOOOOOO!!!!!

I called my mom to post some in a parcel to me but she said I was crazy! What kind of mother calls her daughter like that?!!!

I NEED MY YOGHURT DRINK! Someone send to me can? Anyone? Someone? Some body?

My levi’s jeans is calling to me. T_T

  6. Nice posting, my love. good pictures and sharing - i love all you love, green tea-chocolate tooth paste:P-yogurt!
    the last time i heard we should only consume organic yogurt (at least those who claim they are organic/imported type) or best of all, we should grow yogurt ourselves... it is the most/real healthy way.

  12. Slimming down is sure the hardest thing to do especially when u have ur *ah hem*, u just intend to eat more you always do. As for me, i'll try eat different food in one day but in small portion. Or you can always buy fibre supplements. It helps you to digest faster.

    psst, your new header look gorgeous!

  13. Green tea is good for health as it contains antioxidant. It will not damage your stomach, hence it will not causes gastric.
    Huh? NO Dutch Lady shine in bangkok? Maybe it is not popular in Thailand? Give me your address. I will try to send some to you if you want me to.

    Hope you are doing better today. Cheers!

  25. XD LOL.. Nichole, you sure are crazy..
    Hey, what green tea do you drink for your "slimming remedy"?? what brand? I'm curious! am thinking of getting one too!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Hmm, normally I like yoghurt drinks but I don't think people will be too enthusiastic about dairy products right now, what with the melamine in milk scare and so many products using milk powder or dairy extracts manufactured in China. For the time being, am sticking to plain green tea and good ol' kokokam :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. I don't mind to send you but by the time the yogurt reaches you, you got to learn to speak Thai to doctor as I am sure you will be poisoned by me or... rather the spoilt yogurt. ;p i enjoy reading your blog and keep up the good work.

  29. Yeah I totally agree on the green tea thing — it does help to suppress your appetite and make you crave less for munchies.
