I’ve heard about this whole glutathione rubbish a long time ago. Here in Asia, there are many, many, probably millions of people obsessed in having lighter, fairer skin. It’s hysterical that some go to extreme lengths in skin whitening and skin bleaching. But hey — it’s their happiness, not mine, so who am I to judge? Quite frankly, I don’t care that others do it. I’m very much happy with my skin colour and I’m not obsessed with it. I’m probably the last person to go through treatment specifically targeting the colour of my skin.
After weeks of a friend trying to brainwash persuade me in give this thing a try, I finally caved in yesterday afternoon. Based on what I’ve read on the internet, glutathione is a harmless substance so why not give it a (literal) shot? I thought I’d try it out for the health benefits. Studies say that glutathione is a powerful antioxidant… and that’s exactly what I need because I’m a heavy coffee and tea drinker, I have poor eating and sleeping habits, I smoke like a chimney and I do not exercise.
I’m gonna give it a few sessions to see what happens. I’m kinda worried about the skin lightening side effect…HELLO AYOKO MAGING MULTONG BAKLA…but there’s always the fake tanner for that.
Oh the things that we do to our body…
Have you tried these glutathione injectables? What’s your experience?
I wanted to go out last night but it rained bullets in my neck of the woods so I stayed in. I spoke to Shane in Perth where we played a little game of show and tell. Readers who are able to recognize what the “Big W pin” stands for and will get a kiss from me on the cheek and an oreo cookie.
Big W aside, our conversation moved to weather and fashion. He was telling me how it’s winter in Australia at the moment. I checked the weather in Perth and it was like what, 16 degrees celsius? Hardly winter if you ask me. But you know what, give me 16 degrees any time instead of rainy, 30-degree weather with 100% humidity.
He bought a sweater from Australian high street brand called “Country Road”. We were laughing how ridiculous and totally unnecessary it was for them to put “Italian Yarn” right underneath “Made in China” on the label.
I guess there are some serious freaks out there who deeply care where their garment was made.
Personally-speaking, I’m a big supporter of the Chinese manufacturing industry and their fast ascent in becoming one of the world’s biggest economic powerhouses. I don’t mind that my phone is made in China, my lighters are made in China, my cashmere sweater is made in China, so on and so forth.
Some Lanvin garments, for example, are made in India but you don’t hear people complain about it because it’s Lanvin.
I’m not saying everything made in China is perfect. Of course not.
I just pity the narrow-minded few who have an anti-Chinese point of view and automatically stereotype anything made in non-Western countries as “substandard” or having questionable quality.
The way I see it is that wherever an item is made is totally irrelevant. Whether something is made in China, India, Italy, Japan or United
States, it’s all about having a set of standards and procedures and implementing them to the dot.
I got up this morning with these pics on my inbox. J from the UK totally made my day. Uhh did that sound right? Anyhoo, y’all know me. I have a weakness for them tall, cute guys and this brought a smile to my face.
J said, “considering that most of the guys on your site are male models, I’m probably shooting myself in the foot.”
Um… male models are nice to look at (sometimes) but real guys rock!
PS. Gurl you need to tell me who made your lip gloss.
