{Zespri x #wakeupwithakiwi}

Some of yall would probably know that I’m collaborating with Zespri this month for #wakeupwithakiwi campaign.

Had pretty crazy month with them & it has been such an eye-opener.
I always love working with companies/ products that I really truly believe in.
I don’t know bout yall but my fam always make it a habit to have fruits in our fridge/ kitchen
& one of the reason as to why we will usually get Zespri’s kiwis is that they are always so sweet &fresh plus they are easy to consume.

Think it is about time that we give the Zespri Green Kiwis some well-deserved recognition as it has been wronged for way too long hahaha
People tend to associate the green kiwi as the sour one
& the golden kiwis as the sweet one.
The green kiwis are actually sweet too!

Here’s one trick that I always use to check if my kiwis are sweet & ripen:
 Gently touch & feel the kiwi.
If it’s soft, it means that the kiwi has ripened.
If not,
You can simply place the kiwis in a bag together with other fruits like apples & bananas.
Tie the bag up for 1-3days & this will help to speed up the ripening process :)

Zespri actually came up with a Splice to make eating the kiwifruits so much more easier & enjoyable.
One end of the Splice acts as the knife to cut the fruit open
& the other end is a spoon to help scoop out the fresh.

Do you know that the skin of the kiwifruit is actually edible?!
It’s also the part that has the most amount of fibre.

Enough bout me going on & on about kiwifruits heh

Shall share some of the pics from the Zespri X Georgina Workout Event
That took place last weekend.
Am so happy to be able to meet some of yall
& it really still pretty shocking to me to be where I am today.
I know it may not be much to some but it's a pretty damn big deal to me
& I know I said it before but I'm gonna say it again, 
thanks for making me feel extraordinary hehe

Everyone has a goodie bag filled with kiwis & this super adorable bottle 
which was kinda my "torture tool" for the day :p

Day 1 was Zespri's media workout session. 
Was pretty bummed out bout how I was down with flu 
but was ever so thankful that I managed to pull through. 

Hope the media enjoyed the session as much as I did torturing them heheh 

Can you spot my full-time photographer (aka bf) in the pic below?

Day 2 was Zespri x Georgina's consumer workout event 
which was the one that Zespri has organised for y'all amazing people out there!
I was feeling much better & only had slight flu :]

Y'all were amazingggg!
I know some of you guys was feeling pretty sore but still kept on going.
So proud of you guys heheh

I just had to share the cute pic of the Zespri Kiwifruit mascot joining in on the workout hahah

Shared a short snippet of the workout video that I did w Zespri on my Instagram.
Here's the full video up on YouTube:

So strange to listen to my own voice hahah
Once again,
this is only possible thanks to Zespri & you guys.
Thank you so very much :}


{Lorna Jane product review}

Thrilled that I will be sharing w y'all a review on a set of Lorna Jane workout gear today!
Seen some of their pieces on the net & thought they look really stylish.

I have with me a pair of their running/workout shorts 
& a super fun top.

I like how the bottom is made from light weight lustre LJ woven fabric 
that gives it the slight "leather" kinda feel which makes it looks so fashionable 
& is super comfortable at the same time.
Did some squats in them & I must say, 
it feels good heh 
I also like how there are pockets at the back of the shorts 
which makes it really convenient if you're going out for a run
as you can just keep your keys 
& spare cash in them. 

The top may look simple & plain in the front 
but it actually has a super funky mesh back panel at the back!
This is meant to allow for breathability but 
I reckon that its great for showing off your fav sports bra.

Thought the metal logo at the back is a really nice touch.

I prefer the shorts more compared to the top as I'm usually more of a tank top kinda person
& I really do like how the shorts has both comfort & style.



{Take control of your music x G-SHOCK}

Have been on the lookout for a good digital watch to wear during workouts.
Wanna thank G-SHOCK for sending me one of their latest model!
Will be sharing with yall bout my new G-SHOCK watch in this post.
I must say,
It really is something!

With the G-SHOCK G’MIX GBA-400,
I can now control the songs that are playing on my phone (choose/skip tracks, control volume)
& even locate my phone using the watch!
This is all possible due to the Bluetooth Function
&the G’MIX app.
Besides these functions,
The title of the songs that are being played will also
appear on the watch’s screen.
Pretty cool eh?
With the Phone Finder function,
The watch will trigger an alarm on your phone to help locate your smart phone.
I really like this function as sometimes I have trouble looking for my phone
In my gym bag hahah
No more needing to dig through my bag!

The G-SHOCK G’MIX is available in 4 streaking colours.

I had a hard time deciding between the red and the black & gold one hahaha

Guess what?
For those who are interested in getting a G’MIX of your own,
You can enjoy a $20 discount by sharing this blogpost to the sales person at any Casio G-SHOCK FACTORY store / simply quote my name “Georgina”.

Do note that the promo is only valid from now till the 23rd September 2015!



{Swensen's SG50 food tasting}

Was really privileged to be invited to another round of food tasting at Swensen’s.
This time,
I got to try out some of their SG 50 dishes & some of their new dishes in the menu.
Started the dinner with 2 of their A La Carte dishes;
Tom Yum Popcorn Squid Salad ($11.50) & Golden Breaded Scallops ($9.80)
Gotta say that I was pleasantly surprised by the Tom Yum Popcorn Squid!

It tasted soooo good hahah
The squid was really fresh & it tasted so good with the tom yum sauce.
Double thumbs up for this one!
Like how the sauce comes separately so you can pour
as much as you want into your salad.
It’s a great way to start your meal as it’s really appetizing :p

I ordered the Slipper Lobster Roll ($17.90) for my main course
&my bro got the Oriental Chilli Fish Pasta ($16.90) with a milkshake float on the side
(which he really enjoyed).

Their lobster rolls are always my fav dish at Swensen’s
cause there is a generous serving of the lobster
& I love the buttered bun!

Here’s the spicy Oriental Chilli (Dory) Fish Pasta for my brother had:

Gotta say their You had Me at Laksa Penne ($14.90) was one of my personal fav
For the main dishes.

They even have samba on the side! 
Thought this was the best dish out of the 3 of their SG50 dishes.
Was surprised by how well the laksa gravy complimented the penne.

The other two SG50 dishes were Kicap Manis Glazed Mullet ($15.90)
& Banana Chicken Makes a Comeback ($14.90).
Thought the Kicap Manis Glazed Mullet had a very chinese zi char's steam fish taste to it hahah

Decided to give the Banana Chicken a go as it seems like really a interesting dish.

Have never eaten anything like this before
& I'm not very adventurous when it comes food.
Was wondering if it would taste like goreng pisang (friend banana).
Took a sniff of it (I like smelling my food before eating it … Sometimes hahaha)
before popping it into my mouth
&it actually smelled like goreng pisang :o
I felt that the banana’s taste actually over powered the chicken’s taste.
I would prefer to have these 2 items separately heh

&of course,
we ended our dinner with desserts!
 Had the food tasting at their Ion Orchard outlet 
which means that...

Swensen's also launched 2 new dessert:
 Milo Dinosaur Sundae Dirt Pot ($10.50)
& Deconstructed Raspberry Cheesecake ($11.50).
Needless to say, 
I picked the Dirt Pot :}

Managed to stuff some hot & fluffy waffles
& Hazelnut & Earl Grey Lavender ice cream after :x
