Miss Singapore Beauty Pageant 2014

So while some folks spent their Sunday night at the F1 race, I was over at Amara Hotel, surrounded by beautiful women, for the Miss Singapore Beauty Pageant 2014. Joining me for the night was fellow My Fat Pocket blogger, Jessie.

We were here to witness the 17 hopefuls vie for just 4 crowns, namely the Miss Tourism Queen International 2014, Miss Global Beauty Queen 2014, Miss Singapore All Nations 2014, Miss Friendship International 2014. The 1st runner-up would be given the title, Singapore International Model of the Year 2014 and the 2nd runner-up would be given the title, Singapore Bride of the World 2014.

Charity has always been a priority for all of ERM Singapore’s beauty pageants. And this year’s contest was no different, with its theme being “Beauty with a Heart”. And these ladies had actively helped to raise funds for the Singapore Association for the Visually Handicapped.

Help For Mummies Who Want To Get Back In Shape

Congratulations, you are now a mother to a beautiful baby. You check out your reflection in the mirror and is rudely shocked by what you see. Many women expect to magically shrink back into their pre-pregnancy size soon after delivery. Blame those celebrity new mums for strutting around in their bikini-ready bodies.

But unfortunately for most of us, things are not that simple. So now, all you see peering back at you are a bulging tummy that still looks five months pregnant. The flabby skin hanging out in areas of your body which you have never seen before. And as if to add injury to insult, cellulite marks adorn your stomach, butt and thighs. Oh the horrors!

Being able to get back in shape is what most women worry about. Even for myself, staying in shape is a tough call given that I am so busy juggling family life, work and the baby. I must admit that the last time I did any exercise was prenatal yoga (if you even consider that exercise). All of my time has been devoted to nurturing baby Asher. And I do not exactly watch what I eat, couple that with no exercise at all, it is no surprise that I have developed a small tummy. Furthermore, if you are a new mother, your doctor would warn you against subjecting your body to vigorous exercise. So this is where The Body Firm comes in to help mothers like you & me.
