Primero Fitness Foam Rollers Review

{ Product Review & Giveaway }

The Centeranium (Yellow) and Fascinator (black) Foam rollers by Primero

The Centeranium (Yellow) and Fascinator (black) Foam rollers by PrimeroHave you seen these two items above? These two Myrotrigger  rollers are the new equipment  from Pirmero  Fitness that I added into my  fitness equipment collection at home and use on a regular basis.

I have been hearing about Foam rolling and how it  helps release muscle tension after a straineous workout and had been interested to giving it a try since I’m working out more regularly now.

Since restarting on  my road to fitness in 2016 I’m beeing gradualling adding more and more fitness equipment into my current arsenal. Given my hectic and irregular schedule I find it most convienient to work out in the home.

Firstly let me tell you about foam rolling for those who find this a new concept like I did when I was first introduced to it.

What is foam rolling?

Based on the explaination in wikipedia it is basically essentially a more affordable way to give yourself a deep tissue massage. By slowing rolling over various areas of your body, you’ll help break up adhesions and scar tissue and speed up the healing and recovery process after your workout.

I sit and stand quite a bit in my line of work and this results in backaches and also aching calves.  To reduce the tension and muscle aches that  I have, I’ve  used the rollers in a series of different exercises and found them very effective.

CocoICHIBANYA- New outlet at Raffles City

{Media Invite Food Tasting}

Last weekend I brought the kids down to the newest outlet of CocoICHIBANYA at Raffles Place.  The kids love Japanese curry rice and were thrilled to know that we were making a stop at this restaurant for dinner.  They had tried the branch at Star Vista a couple of times and loved it.

The kids constantly ask for Japanese curry. They prefer it over the traditional Chinese or Indian Curry as the level of spiciness can be adjusted easily.

From Mild all the way till Level 5 there are 7 different spicy levels which cater to your taste buds.  Trust me Level 5 isn’t for the faint-  hearted!! The kids love the mild and I settle for Level 1.

This is what I had.  I love the soft pieces of beef  together with the curry. It is simply delicious!!

Doggie boy had the curry with udon as he didn’t want to eat rice that night.  ( Picture in collage above)

Doggie boy and Tiger girl had a milkshake each. It was  a creamy and yummy addition to their meals.

My thoughts

In all we love the foods however the appetizer – fries with curry sauce and ice-cream for dessert  were less then satisfactory.  The fries tasted very powdery and the ice-cream melted extremely fast and was not as creamy and thick as we expected.

Just go for their curry and drinks if you do decided to dine there. You won’t go wrong with your choice.
