“Wouldn’t it be nice?”

March 19, 2009

Alright… it’s getting hott in here~ and i soooo have to blog this! Woah! excited eh~


If you happen to visit the Singapore Changi Airport T3 – NTUC ;

Oh! and i usually call it Aunty-Lucy; cause it’s more ‘to the heart’ – she simply provides you with ‘everything’ you need!! blah blah blah…~

Back to topic….

there’s this additional ‘showcase’ thingy that have ‘special’ racks for the Cadbury corner, and i simply can’t control but to take pictures of the ‘interesting’ things there were saying about chocolates.

so here’s the first one…


“Chocolate is nutritious”

 well well well…! So why did mom stop me from eating chocolates in the first place? i should have showed her this! *humph*

 oh well~  i like the next one better!

ha-ha!!

YOU’RE WARNED!                       Don’t just read the ‘header’, always read on!!

When consume correctly, Chocolates’ itself shouldn’t let you ‘grow’ fat’.Uh-uh~

As what it says, interestingly the Swiss who made and consumed A-LOT of chocolates are actually ‘in general’ do not have a higher mean body mass index than that of American. Just to show how much chocolates Swiss consume and make.

Here’s some quick figures :

“Today most Swiss chocolate is consumed by the Swiss themselves (54% in 2000), and Switzerland has the highest per capita rate of chocolate consumption world wide (11.6 kg per capita per annum).

In 2004 148,270 tonnes of chocolate were produced in Switzerland. 53% of this was exported (20% to Germany, 11% to France and Great Britain and 13% to North America). The gross income of the Swiss chocolate industry in 2004 was 1,365 million CHF (814 million from the local market, 551 million from exports).”

 

 

Wow~!! i tell you that is A-LOT ok? if you don’t know how much is 148,270 tonnes. Just one simple analogy, an elephant weighs about 5 tonnes. ok, now go do the maths.            *tic-tic-tic*                

p/s: to speed up the process you may use the calculator 


This is true!!  It’s scientifically proven that chocolates at a consulted & moderated intake is actually ‘good to the heart’.

Why?  still ask why! didn’t read what i wrote right? already mentioned it’s ‘scientifically proven’~

still don’t believe? ok.. fine! i can’t really do anything to you, you see… 

*Flashing News*

Chocolate Was Reported as Being “Healthy”

Henry Stubbe (1632-1676) was a physician who considered drinking Chocolate once or twice a day an excellent cure for fatigue caused by hard work. He also believed that Chocolate helped benefit the heart and that it helped increased breast milk production in women.

 

An interesting fact about chocolate is that, after much research, it’s since been found to contain healthy antioxidants. These can help lower the incidence of getting cancer and heart disease. Eating chocolate can also lower your LDL cholesterol and add beneficial iron and magnesium to your body!

 

Wow! so next time anyone tries to make you guilty or tells you, you’re harming your health when you eat chocolates, tell him …!

“hey~ you didn’t read news? it’s scientifically proven hor… blah blah blah~”   how bout that?  *winks* 

 


the last picture that i wanna share…. reads “Get Happy with Chocolate” 

it’s no joke! i reallyhad depended on it when i’m really sad or unhappy.  Try it with ice-cream, or simply try chocolate ice-cream (my favorite choice – Ben & Jerry’s) , it works double! well.. at least that works for me..

but again scientifically it’s proven that it contains a chemical known as phenylethylamine. This chemical – phenylethylamine, in addition to the sugar, fat and caffeine that’s found in chocolate has been shown to release serotonin and endorphins- two known chemicals that make us feel happy!

 Ermz…  I’m actually not so sure now about the ice-cream part. well, at least i proven it to ‘myself’…

So… try and see if it works!! =p

With all these ‘positivity’ facts about chocolates and the Mmm-mm~ goodness of chocolates, how can you still contain your ‘desires’?  

putting it into practical implications… 

Calling out to the Gentleman!

Please!   Make a girls’ day by buying her some chocolates!

BUT beware, first find out if she’s on a ‘diet’. You sure won’t want a return ‘cold’ shoulder right? 

and Girls!  next time you receive a box of chocolates, stop calculating about the KCals or how much longer you need to hit the gym after.. Savour the goodness then think about it later …!

*p/s: i’m so not responsible for any adverse effects! =P *

Further to that and what was shared earlier..

5. I love it.
