WINNER ANNOUNCEMENT (19th June 2016):
Congratulations YEONG MEI, HARIVAIN, and IREAN! I have dropped you an email ?
Today’s topic is an exciting one. FOOD! But wait. Not edible food but an app that I have been trying out as I do cafe hop quite a bit for Modern Mavens. Okay. That is just an excuse. I cafe hop a lot because I love to be in a cafe.
Food is everybody’s favourite. I am personally not so much a foodie but I do LOVE to cafe hop and enjoy a good cup of coffee. Usually I find out about a good cafe or restaurant through word of mouth or recommendation from friends, not so much on googling and poof, off I go. No. It does not work that way for me. What happened when I ran out of place to hop? That is when Openrice App comes in, an app I recently used to search for ermm food deals 🙂

I sorta mentioned in a recent blog post that I will be doing a giveaway. And I sorta forgot to take photos of the prize (again!) until today after I paid a visit to SK-II counter for a Magic Ring skin test and consultation.
Now, I do not have a lot of giveaway as before so this is something rare for me to do 😛 . In conjunction with the rebranding of Street Love, I have a set of SK-II Pitera Essence Set worth RM199 to give away. Please take note that this giveaway is not sponsored by SK-II by any mean. I happened to have two sets in my stash so I thought to give out one (1) set to one lucky reader to try. This will be a good starter set for anyone who has been wanting to try SK-II 😀
What is Eczema?
Eczema is caused by interplay between genetic and environmental triggers. Eczema often affects ￼people who either suffer from asthma and/ or hay fever (allergic rhinitis) or have family members who do aka genetic. These three diseases are often referred by doctors as the ‘atopic triad’. It is characterised by these two easily identified symptoms: rashes and extreme itching. Skin becomes extremely dry and it begins to itch. That is when the urge to scratch become intolerable and painful. The more you scratch, the more the skin breaks and becomes a target for infection. This triggers the release of inflammatory chemicals and your skin becomes inflamed, which further irritates the skin. This results in a vicious itch-scratch-infection-inflammation cycle.
Eczema is a multi-factorial condition, which can be triggered by things in the environment or certain habits that can make the itching and rashes worse. So that is why it is very important to educate young patients and their parents/ caregivers on the proper management and care of eczema such as constant hydrate the skin with the use of moisturisers and controller creams and the use of rescue medicines as prescribed by doctors correctly. The itch usually comes before the rash does and the rashes comes and goes. When this happen it will affect the patients’ daily activities and sleep at night, especially for young patients as it causes distress to the parents. In the MyEAP guidebook, Dr Leong commented that he always tell his young patients that having eczema is like running a long-distance marathon. You may not find a medication that works immediately but you will never give up and continue to run the race.
