Royal Valens LetItGo, Fitunix & Qinova 14 Days Plan Review

A while back I joined a 2-week detox programme with Dr Esence using a combination of 3 products. I learnt that a healthy body starts from a healthy digestive system. This makes sense as all the goodness we put into our body will be useless if our body cannot digest it properly right? This programme aims to improve 3 key points: Detox, metabolism, and immunity.

Results after 2 weeks

I prefer to rely on what I see/feel instead of weight. Overall my whole body was slimmer and less bloated. The most apparent part was my tummy, followed by a sharper face. Ah yeah, you might say "eh she just went to toilet lah.." and.. YES YOU ARE RIGHT! The Royal Valens LetItGo product helps you to go toilet and detoxifies your body. It is not a meal replacement nor extreme diet product. I would consider it something like a supplement - it improves how your body functions.

Diet

During the first week, I still became slimmer even though I ate normally with rice and all. 2nd week, I followed it with lots of salads about 5-7 times a week. I love salads so I replace lunch, dinner or supper with them. This combination works for me and I do like how my body feels running on fresh greens.

Royal Valens LetItgo 14 Days Cleansing Plan

For me, the star of this programme is definitely Royal Valens LetItgo. It contains a whopping 14 different types of digestive enzymes, inulin, mixed berries juice powder, psyllium husk, antioxidants and more. LetItGo functions to stabilise blood sugar, improve bowel function and kick-start weight loss and detox. The garcinia cambogia extract in it is supposed to curb appetite as well but I guess it's too mild to affect me.
Royal Valens LetItGo review
Mix one sachet a day in 200ml of room temperature water and consume before dinner. I mix it in my shaker as it's easier than stirring. If you let it soak a bit, you will see it's packed full of highly concentrated fibre (corn, apple and oat fibre). It has a very nice berry taste and fragrance you will definitely enjoy. Drink at least 2-3 litres of water a day.

The programme is completed with:

Royal Valens Fitunix 14 Days Revival Plan

If you're always feeling low on energy, this is the one for you. It's also the best tasting one formulated with prune, honey, pomegranate extract, guarana and vitamins. Guarana is a natural caffeine that provides an energy boost and increase your metabolism without affecting your liver.

Royal Valens Qinova 14 Days Revitalization Plan

Made from curcumin, lingzhi mushroom, blackseed oil, multi vitamins, and fucoidan. Fucoidan is a seaweed known in Japan for over 2000 years as a substance for longevity. With ingredients like these, I was wondering if I'm going to drink 'turmeric soup'. On the contrary, it was nice and sweet thanks to the addition of peach juice! Qinova increases the antioxidant capacity of your body to protect against free radical attacks and boosts the immune system.

Both of these are liquids packed in small convenient sachets which you can throw into your bag even when you're traveling.
Royal Valens Fitunix & Qinova
Overall, I like the effect especially LetItGo. For best results, of course you have to change your diet and add in workout. It is not a miracle product but can help kick-start your healthier lifestyle and help you achieve a healthy body.

Are results permanent?

Of course, it will revert back if you go back to your old lifestyle right? This is a long-term thing. There is no shortcut. It was suggested to take 2 weeks break between each 14 days plan.

How to Get a Promotion as a Nurse

Whether you’re just starting out in your nursing career or you’re an experienced healthcare professional, it’s always a good idea to be thinking about the future. Your current role will always be your priority, but there is nothing wrong with making plans or simply researching how you could progress further down the road. The field of nursing is much broader than many people assume and the invaluable skills, knowledge, and personal qualities nurses possess can be applied in a variety of settings. Whatever stage you’re at in your career, there are some simple ways to increase your chances of being promoted to a senior nursing role.

Senior Nursing Roles: The Options

While most (if not all) nurses will start in a healthcare organization or hospital ward caring for patients through specific procedures and processes, this is not necessarily how they will spend their whole career. Nurses in more senior positions can practice medicine to a higher level and may even be able to authorize diagnostic investigation or make referrals. There are also senior roles which involve more managerial responsibility, including staff training, research, policy development, and maintaining the standards of patient care. For an example of a senior nursing role, take a look at this Director of Nursing job overview.

How to Make Promotion More Likely

Excel in Your Current Role
To move on to a role with more responsibility, you need to ensure you are more than competent in your current position. If there are gaps in your knowledge or others around you have superior experience, takes steps to rectify this to ensure you’re amongst the best of your peers.

Network
Networking is one of the most effective ways to develop your professional skills, gain new knowledge, and make vital connections with influential people. When you do meet people with careers you wish to emulate, take the opportunity to ask them about their career path. They may also have information about the career, which may make you rethink your ambition and pursue a new direction. Networking regularly will also make it more likely that you’ll hear of promotion opportunities when they open up.

Continue to Study
A great way to separate yourself from other candidates for promotion is to enhance your resume with further study and qualifications. If you are interested in specializing in a particular area of healthcare, you should make an effort to gain relevant accreditations. There are great benefits to online study which enable you to fit the course around your work schedule.

Maintain Professionalism
Your professionalism and work ethic will be crucial to your career progression chances. Teamwork, collaboration, politeness, reliability, and efficiency are all absolutely necessary when working as a nurse. If you ever find yourself confronted by something you don’t know how to do, always ask for support or advice. This is particularly important if you find yourself feeling anxious or stressed in your job.

Go the Extra Mile
This ties in with professionalism, but you also need to find ways to stand out in the crowd. This could be by taking on extra responsibility, volunteering for extra shifts, asking to observe more advanced procedures, and offering your help to others who are struggling. You will be an asset to the team and top of the list when the opportunity for promotion arises.

Dine & Wine at The BAR°N, Sunway Pyramid

Welcome to the newest The BAR°N at Sunway Pyramid! It offers a unique ambience while serving up a refreshingly distinct experience for diners with signature offerings which include tapas, flame-grilled delectable and an extensive selection of wine.

This is their 6th outlet after Citta Mall, Desa Park City, 1 Mont Kiara, Pavilion KL and Gurney Plaza. It easily stands out with it's elaborate ceiling featuring magical wire mesh animals floating in clouds.
The BAR°N Sunway Puramid
And guess what.. they brought an actual camel to the launch LOL The BAR°N Sunway Pyramid was launched by Barny the Camel, a special guest traversing the Pyramids of Egypt before making a stop at the Pyramids of Sunway.
The BAR°N is located on the ground floor of Sunway Pyramid with large glass windows so sunlight fills the room. However, I sat beside the window and it was very hot.

Ms. Candice Lee, one of The BAR°N’s founders, expressed at the launch, “We’re so glad to formalise the growth of The BAR°N with today’s launch of our outlet right here in Sunway Pyramid. Indeed, our success through the years is due in part to the constant support of our guests, who have been our inspiration throughout the years, for which we are truly grateful. Today’s launch is a testament of that. But we are more than just another dining venue. We’re about creating that WOW experience and developing a culture which ultimately creates that unique offering to our guests,”

“It is our hope that The BAR°N will one day be the natural choice for people when seeking out a place to dine with some good food and drinks, be it for business or pleasure, we created The BAR°N specifically to be a place where anyone can simply chill, hang out or call their own.” Candice continued.

The BAR°N's menu is huuuge with a large selection of non-alcoholic beverages, coffee, wine, alcohol, and even food. You could even bring your family here in the daytime as it is family-friendly.

Three bespoke wine cocktails were specially curated by The BAR°N’s resident bartender to be served to the guests at the launch. Inspired by the land of golden sands, these wine cocktails are aptly named The Hump, Cleopatra Dreams, and Sangria from the Pyramids.
Being called a wine bar, The BAR°N offers an extensive list of wines ranging from the classical red and white to sparkling and even dessert wine sourced from all around the world.
There is also a lotttt of food here but I didn't get to taste most of it so I shall share only photos.
Operating every day from 11am to 12am, The BAR°N Sunway Pyramid can be reached for reservation and enquiries at 03 5612 9066 or by contacting Ms. Anna Tatarnikova, The BAR°N’s Restaurant General Manager at anna@thebarn.com.my. Reservations can also be made on The BAR°N website at www.thebarn.com.my
