I have always been worried and self-conscious about it, and been planning to properly maintain my body weight to a proportionate number but of course, it is mostly only thought out and yet hardly executed in a proper way.
Fortunately my current body weight is just right and I don't need to worry too much. But sometimes, I just can't rid the thought of getting obese out of my mind due to my huge appetite.
Earlier this month, my friend asked me to sign up for a gym membership at one of the gym clubs here in Jakarta together with him, and so I did.
AND THEN, I FELT LIKE THIS MUST BE A SIGN FROM ABOVE TO TELL ME TO TAKE CARE OF MY WEIGHT!
Not long after, I got invited to this bloggers gathering event held by Dream.co.id x Mustika Ratu at Twin House, Cipete. The main purpose of this event was to introduce their slimming products and also to point out that guys can also consume slimming products as well.
I MEAN, JOINING THE GYM AND SLIMMING PRODUCT INTRODUCTION TO ME, COINCIDENCE MUCH?
This must be a sign.

Fast forward to the D-Day of the event, upon arrival, we were seated at our own pre-arranged seats, not many familiar faces were seen from the usual bloggers gathering events that I go to, and so I simply sat awkwardly on my seat.

Apparently, this slimming series by Mustika Ratu is also considered as one of the traditional herbal drinks by this brand. It is made out of 100% natural products, and some of the participants of this event said that they have tried this tea before and the result is real! This certainly intrigued me a lot.
After having a quick look on the details of this slimming tea, turns out that aside from slimming effect, the tea also has a lot of different uses from their ingredients such as:
1. Green Tea which is rich of Antioxidants, helps with the deconstruction of fat cells within the body.
2. Dutch Teak Leaves (Guazumae Folium), tightens up the pores on your gut so as to prevent the absorption of fats from the foods consumed.
3. Parameriae Cortex, which I have never heard of before, that supposedly helps in lowering the fat within the small intestine.

Aside from the tea products listed above, if you are more interested in having a more convenient approach, Mustika Ratu also have them in the form of pills or caplets:
Okay enough introduction around the product itself, continuing on to the event, there was this one table in front that piqued my interest. On top of it were a variety of ingredients including spices and such. From the looks of it, I can already guess that there was going to be a recipe demo coming right up.
And bingo indeed! There was going to be a recipe demo, and it was held with Ms. Yulia Baltschun, a former finalist of Masterchef Indonesia.
Moving on! Aside from those activities earlier, there was also a sharing session on product knowledge of this slimming series by Mustika Ratu with Ms. Retno Pratiwi, the General Marketing Manager of Mustika Ratu and nutritional breakdown talkshow by Ms. Winda Ekayanti, a professional nutritionist where she gives us advices on keeping fit and having a healthy diet.
Of course to be healthy, fit and slim, you can't simply focus on the food you consume. True, it plays a big part within your diet but to attain the perfect balance, you also need to exercise regularly.
That is why, for the last session of the event, we were told to grab a change of clothes, and out to the garden area. Why? CAUSE WE ARE GOING TO EXERCISE!
So for before we end the day, a body combat session has been planned out with a professional instructor. If you don't know what a body combat is, it is basically a type of exercise where the moves are based on combat moves such as punching, kicking, etc.
The session went on for half an hour long, and believe it or not, for a half-an-hour session, we sweated a lot!

The event was pretty fun overall as we get to learn a lot about healthy diet routine and also we got to play around during the body combat session.
