I met up with YiJing at Queenstown MRT before going down to the Garden Hub!
The Garden Hub is located about 10mins from the MRT station! - Quite far yeah!
Now, let's jump into the main topic!
What's Blackmores all about?
About The Company
Blackmores started in Queensland, Australia in the 1930s.
It was the vision and passion of Australia's pioneering naturopath, Maurice Blackmore.
Since day one, Blackmores has taken a long-term, holistic approach to health.
Our philosophies run deep and the values that guided Blackmores back in the 1930s
continue to be at the heart of what we do today.
For over 70 years we have combined scientific evidence with traditional knowledge
to offer people a more natural approach to health.
As a company and as individuals, we strive to make a difference in everything
from the products and services we offer to our commitment to environmental sustainability.
Ideas that were considered radical, when company founder Maurice Blackmore
was at the helm of the business, are now part of our way of life.
The quest for optimum health requires a never-ending pursuit of reliable and trusted information.
We recognise that every day you make choices about your health and wellbeing
and we want you to be in the best position to make the right decisions.

About Blackmores Radiance:
Blackmores Radiance is a skin supplement for day and night use,
containing a combination of ingredients to provide 24 hour intensive nourishment
for the deeper layers of your skin to help keep it healthy, youthful and glowing.
Features and benefits
Antioxidant such as vitamin C, vitamin E, selenium, lutein and lycopene
may help decrease premature ageing effects of sun damage and free radicals
Lutein has been documented to enhance skin elasticity and hydration
Vitamin C is essential for collagen production
Collagen-protein extract, Coenzyme Q10, antioxidants and
combination of herbs help maintain integrity and structure of the skin.
Dosage Adults –
Take 1 day capsule in the morning and 1 night capsule in the evening with meals, or as professionally prescribed.
For many of us, our busy lifestyles mean we may not be able to eat the variety
and quality of nutrients our skin requires to look its best.
Even with a well-balanced diet, it is possible that some of us do not obtain
the levels of these important nutrients needed for optimum skin health.
So while most women's anti-ageing regimens are likely to include cleansers, moisturisers and sun creams,
some benefits may be achieved by combining a normal skincare routine with Blackmores Radiance™,
nourishing and hydrating from within.
Blackmores Radiance is available in leading pharmacies and watsons.
Selling price is approximately $123.00 for a box of 56 capsule ( 28days & 28 nights)

Well, I personally also thinks that beauty product and facial treatment are not enough!
The best way to be healthy and look young have to be from inside out.
In fact, I have been taking some supplements that benefit my skin.
I think it's perfect to combine my skin care routine together with consumption of supplement.
So that, I can look good not only from outside but also from inside.
You need to choose the right supplement, of course!
Blackmores Radiance is clinically proven and natural!
I was sponsored with 2 boxes and I can't wait to try them out soon!
Now, here's the fun part!
It's cooking time!!

The best thing about cooking at Cookyn Inc is that;
Everything is well-prepared!! =D
We do not need to chop, wash and all!!
Look at the fat, fresh Salmon!
This dish is extremely easy to cook as well.
Basically you need to prepare a parchment paper,
place your salmon on top, add salt, pepper and all of the ingredients.
Add a lil bit of butter on top.
Leaving a small opening at the end, add two splashes of wine or chicken stock into it
and seal them completely afterward.
Baked them in a preheated oven (210c) for 12mins and you're done!
Spot my salmon? Yes! The one that looks like a curry puff lol
