Getting an anti-pollution respirator for scootering

28 Jul

H asked why I wasn’t wearing a mask to protect my lungs while I faithfully wear a jacket to keep the dirt off my clothes when riding.

what? your clothes are more important than your lungs?

Brilliant point. I had no excuse.

Thus began my search for respirators, a proper respirator for use on the congested roads of Singapore.

After consulting teh interwebz and numerous reviews, I decided to try the respro bandit mask out first.

Just came in the mail yesterday :D

Bought it off ebay for S$37+ including shipping. Activated carbon filter, lasts 6 months and you get to look like a ninja. Or a grass cutter in this part of the world.

There are a few other options available, such as the Bane-looking respro masks, activated carbon icanbreathe masks, stylish vogmasks or the locally-available totobobo. I’ll prolly try the rest of them after this one. ^^

review of iherb.com: iherb discount coupon and delivery to singapore

10 Feb

been ordering health supplements online and found an online retailer that has a good range of products and very cheap shipping from US to Singapore.

go check out http://www.iherb.com for their complete range of products.

 

wide variety of supplements, cheap shipping.

Reliability and cost of delivery

i bought a few bottles of fish oil DHA capsules as a test purchase and chose the cheapest shipping available, USPS air mail. At just US$4, this is the cheapest shipping option but it is limited to orders up to US$80 and 3 lbs. This shipping option is untrackable, which means the package may (touchwood) get lost. ^^; My order took a few of weeks to arrive and the items were in perfect condition.

 

hello self-present from the interwebz!

more details after the jump…

online shopping for cheap health supplements

3 Jan

 

the goodies from the interwebz (usa).

before the world wide webz, most of us folks were at the mercy of local health stores like nature’s farm and gnc when it came to sports and health supplements. i still remember paying hundreds of bucks for gigantic tubs of mega mass which tasted like powdered diabetes and collecting little loyalty stamps to exchange for some royal jelly or vitamin c caps. ^^;

then came the interwebz, local online retailers sprouted up and prices started dropping.

a little bit later from the depths of the forums came mass orders (or MOs) and sprees, where net denizens came together to achieve better economy of scale by concentrating their purchasing power and sharing delivery charges.

retailers from beyond the straits of singapore also became more accessible and this really opened up the choice of items available for purchase.

i luv the interwebz, among many many other reasons, for helping me save moolah purchasing supplements and finding gym gear not available in singapore.

my order of fish oil - jarrow's max dha. good stuff at good price.

i ordered these fish oil softgels before xmas and received them just before the new year. they came up to an average of $24 each bottle, a cool $14 savings per bottle based on retail price of $38 at a local online retailer. woot!

 

claims to reduce elbow/ wrist pain and increase grip/ arm strength... the only way to find out is try them out myself.

also getting gym gear not available in singapore like fat gripz through an MO. only $54 for a pair, way cheaper than if i were to order and ship in a set on my own. ^^

"slow" protein - when you want your body to absorb the protein slowly

bought myself a tub of ON’s 100% casein from fitlion last week. i have a fair bit of experience ordering my health supplements from a variety of local online shops, ranging from one-man-operations like ultimatesg.com to the big boys like tsw.com.sg. i won’t use my past experience since service quality might have changed (improved/deteriorated) since, so i’ll just share my recent experience with them. here’s the review of fitlion ;)
