Pointed Remarks Slung at eastcoastlife - Photohunt

Theme : Pointed

Brave Elizabeth Zhou baring herself to the public!

I was on my way to meet hubby for dinner at Suntec Convention Centre last night when I was accosted by promoters from a local beauty salon and slimming centre.

I was offered a quick 1-minute skin analysis. FREE! I took the bait..... turned out I stayed 2 hours getting pointed remarks slung at my direction! Hearing them criticised my face and body.... I was practically melting in shame.

Why didn't I leave? The normally hot tempered eastcoastlife would have chew their heads off!

I was fascinated with their promises of a younger looking and svelte body . *day-dreams......*

Brake!!! $$$$$$..... need lots of it. sigh......

From now until 27 July, you can watch 2 participants and a MediaCorp artiste go from flab to fab as they undergo slimming treatments in a furnished glass house which costs S$80,000 to construct.

Everyday, you will see chubby Elizabeth Zhou and Mary Lin exposed themselves as they undergo their treatments. I have never believed in slimming the passive way. So I shall watch them and wave as I pass them daily. :)

ok... I need money. Have to slave for the money to go for the treatments. Go! Go! Go eastcoastlife! (No more pointed remarks please!!)



昨晚,我约了先生在新达城会议中心吃晚餐。在途中被一家本地出名的美容瘦身中心的促销员搭讪。

她提供了我1分钟快速皮肤分析。 免费!? 我受了诱惑.....结果我花了2个小时听她们轮流向我评头论足一番及疲劳轰炸似的销售经! 听了她们毫不保留的批评,我感觉好沮丧。

我为什么不离开? 脾气暴躁的eastcoastlife干嘛不将她们的头给扭啦!

她们滔滔不绝的介绍配套和承诺, 使我憧憬拥有一个更加年轻和苗条的身体。 啊!

慢着!!! .....需要好多$$$$$$嘞!! 叹气......

从现在起直到7月27日,您能观看到2个参加者和一位MediaCorp艺人怎么把松驰多余的赘肉去掉。她们将在花费S$80,000建造的玻璃房子里进行减肥治疗。

每天,您会看见胖嘟嘟的周恩来(对, 没看错。)和玛丽当众露肥胖的身体接受治疗。 我从不相信靠仪器能帮助减肥。 因此我将观察她们并在经过时给她们一点鼓励。加油!

好了… 我现在需要努力争钱,一圆我减肥瘦身的梦。加油 ! 加油! eastcoastlife, 你行的!

  8. Whenever they approach me saying my skin is awful,I tell them straight "I'm allergic to your products" :P

    The mediacorp artists, one of then is "Quan Yi-Fong" huh? You're talking about the exposed in glass house for a month or something like that?

    p/s: Welcome to the club of helplessness w/o the helper!! But at least you can immediately get a new one. I've got 1 whole month to "pengsan" :(

  9. mariuca,
    I'm also looking for a beauty salon for my skin care, so I checked them out.

    Been asking around today, got lots of feedback. :)

    It is hard to resist with such people around, they can talk the dead to come back alive! kakaka....

    Thanks for your votes!! *muack*

    ReplyDelete
  10. napaboaniya,
    Yah... the glass house where Quan Yi Fong will be having her slimming. I didn't see her last night.

    Don't go near if you don't want to be bombarded.... that includes readers of this blog. :)

    Getting a new helper is just as headache, have to go through the training all over again!! *tears my hair out*

    Good exercise for you lah. hehe...

  11. I guess every woman just dreams of having that perfect body. Sigh. Stupid fashion mags and ideal visions.

    It's so cool you have your entry in chinese too! Is it like a special translation program or did you just translate it all by yourself? If it is the latter, I am in awe. :)

    ReplyDelete
  12. Jasmine,
    Yah... women can be vain no matter how smart they are. I'm also shallow. ^-^

    The Chinese is literally translated from my English post. haha....

    I have friends from Taiwan who couldn't understand a word the Babel fish thingy translates so I have to translate for them.

  13. Aiyo i seriously don't like pushy-promoters. But which promoters not pushy? @.@

    ReplyDelete
  14. huey,
    yep... most promoters have to be pushy to get sales. I hate hard selling too.

    ReplyDelete
  15. well...Hopefully it works...actually i don't mind some weight myself...Btw congrats on your nomination. I voted for u!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I am surprised that eastcoastlife would stay there to hear such remarks. I think I would feel hurt and would leave.

    Anyway, the answer is yes, to your last question.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Hehe.. these salespeople will say anything to get people to sign up for their pgm, right?

    ReplyDelete
  18. ed,
    Thanks for your congratulatory message and vote.

    You don't need to lose weight lah. You are always running around so can lose weight easily.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I was LOL'ing Napaboanya's comment! haha I say the same as well..LOL

  22. yen,
    What happened to your Singapore trip!? Came and went home already?
    Happy weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Fun take on the theme. I don't put up with pointed comments from people trying to sell me something. I would probably say, I like having icky skin and loads of wrinkles, it gives me character.

    ReplyDelete
  24. keeyit,
    ... and get swallowed by them? pay money to learn lesson. hehe....

    ReplyDelete
  25. I'm a big fan of walking; all I need to do is replace my sneakers ($$$) every few months.

    ReplyDelete
  26. No one deserves to get those kind of pointed remarks :(

    My entry is here

    Stop by if you have a moment. Happy photo hunting! And have a great weekend :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Don't listen to them. You are beautiful as you are. They criticise you to make you believe you need their services. I am sure any gains made in the program disappear within a couple months of returning to your normal life. there is no miracle cure, except your beauty as it is.

    ReplyDelete
  28. you have the best pointies in singapore! no need treatment! give them your finger treatment if they dare you once more.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Aiks... I thought I was the only one here getting all the pointed remarks for dark eye bags. Wait? What am I doing here now? Good Morning ECL :P

  34. Slimming the passive way sounds great to me, but the cost doesn't.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I hate that you had pointed remarks aimed at you... but I did enjoy your blog about it! Let us know what happens with those two girls.

    ReplyDelete
  36. They'll say anything to get your $$$, so be very "pointed" about the fact that you are happy with the way you are now! Great take on the theme. Be sure to drop by and have a wonderful weekend. :D

    ReplyDelete
  37. You look great, just brush off those POINTED remarks.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I attended a Bloggers' Party last night sponsored by a Beauty Company. The sponsor promises a "Look younger in 7 days".

  45. ECL - I read the fine prints "This is not a sponsored post". Ha ha ha.

    Your experience reminds me of one time, my salon hairstylist asked if I wanted to have a quick check on my scalp. She used a machine that can see my scalp at the microscopic level. OMG, I saw oil oozing out and that was not the worst, the entire troop of hairstylists and staff were watching on the screen because it was close to closing hours and there were no customers around. So embarrassing!

    Anyway, did you know that I got nominated by Ping.sg for a blog award on review?! Gosh ... *blushing*

    ReplyDelete
  46. I would love one of those cardboard cutouts. Then I could just park it at my desk and nobody would know.

    Have some chocolate and relax ECL.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Hmm... slimming online. Wow... It's gonna come to Malaysia anytime soon too.. haha

    ReplyDelete
  48. *now really scared* ..

    Trash in, trash out ...

    ReplyDelete
  49. Oh, what have they told you, ECL? And then they will charge a lot? Hmph! :)

    ReplyDelete
  50. Nah, I never trusted this kinda of slimming procedures. Losing weight is not hard but maintaining it is a challenge. They're just money suckers.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Hi eastcoastlife, you are invited to hop on to the TechnoFav train http://projectheavytraffic.blogspot.com/2008/07/technofav-train.html

    ReplyDelete
  53. I just ignore those type of sales pitches when they try and stop me.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Wow...singapore more and more open liow hor...more and more like Taiwan.:P

    ReplyDelete
  55. Pointed remarks! LOLOL! Good one!

    In New York City, a girl can't walk down the street without those...

    Thanks for visiting my Photo Hunt post. :)

    ReplyDelete
  56. Lol...this is why I stuck myself into going to the gym regularly...don't worry about the remarks, its just so for them to sell services. Happy weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  57. No, I wouldn't like pointed remarks like that, not at all. They really ought to be able to put their points across in a pleasant manner.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I'm sorry to say, I don't support you in the makeover thing. You are perfect as you are and I feel I get almost angry with people in beauty salons give advices that like. To me this is just commercialism and a way to monetize.

    Remember, beauty comes from the inside and can't be bought with money!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Aha, they chose the wrong victim. They're trying to take the money from your pocket into theirs more than anything else. And I'm glad they failed.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I'm not sure whether I voted correctly and whether it counts.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Pointed remarks are very mean. I do not like when people are mean. Nice is better. But it doesn't sell as much product I guess.

    ReplyDelete
  62. im back here to vote for you and jaymes.

    cheers!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I would hate pointed remarks like that - I don´t think that could happen here in Sweden...
    Happy weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Very interesting take on the pointed theme. Thanks for the visit. Enjoy your day!

    ReplyDelete
  65. I voted for you!!!

    ReplyDelete
  66. Ed,
    Thanks for your vote.

    Looking at my fat aunty look, I seriously need a good exercise programme.

    ReplyDelete
  67. oceanskies,
    There is some truth in what they said about my not taking care of my body and skin. I can take the truth. :)

    I'm also verifying their claims... the things I do for blogging!! haha...

    Thanks for loving me despite my flaws. :)

    ReplyDelete
  68. I'm sorry to hear you were subjected to such criticisms. It's not exactly a kind of marketing scheme that I approve of. I think you look pretty as you are.

    ReplyDelete
