Sensodyne Repair And Protect Toothpaste

This is not a paid or sponsored advertisement (NAPOSA).

I suffered from regular whiteheads around my lips and chin for many years. They rear their little white bumps at night and grow up to be full white heads in the morning. Seeing them in the mirror after I wake up annoyed me, on top of having to purchase skincare products to combat a seemingly persistent issue.

I decided that there had to be a cause and looked at the potential reasons:

  1. Poor diet
  2. Going to bed late
  3. Insufficient sleep
  4. Poor sleep quality
  5. Inconsistent sleeping hours
  6. Dirty pillow/bed sheets

  8. Skincare products

Eliminate Verbal Haze

After writing a piece, I often eliminate words and restructure passages. I believe everyone should cultivate a habit of relentlessly removing redundant words. If you think that you write too much, you just might. This is regardless of how skilled of a wordsmith you are.

Pledging For A Democratic Singapore

Today is Cooling Off Day. Singaporeans will go to vote tomorrow, on 10 July 2020.

I believe that the Singapore National Pledge functions as an unsinkable ballast to steer the nation. It’s been nearly two decades since I last recited the Pledge in school. I still remember it by heart.

“We, the citizens of Singapore,
pledge ourselves as one united people,
regardless of race, language or religion,
to build a democratic society
based on justice and equality
so as to achieve happiness, prosperity
and progress for our nation.”

The Singapore National pledge

I hope Singapore turns out for the better and citizens maintain their fighting spirit. Come what may, we stand united. More than a cliche line, unity truly is strength. Such strength will see Singapore through dark, choppy, and dangerous waters.
