Vegetarian Lunch And My Pigmentation

My colleague invited us over to her house to have lunch... it is to commemorate her father's 2nd year death anniversary. According to her Hindu custom, the family normally gives lunch and dinner to their family, relatives and friends. This is the first time for me and during lunch hour, we went to her house for the occasion and it took us nearly half hour to reach after some wrong turns here and there in Tambun.

After paying our respects to her family, we were ushered to be seated for our meal in the garden terrace.
Lunch was served on banana leaves...
and once we sat down, we were given a bit of this and that...
this is my portion...all vegetarian... 
and some fruits after the meal..
Took a picture before we left...
and...
I have to "resize" this a moment ago...
Cos I noticed something amiss on my left cheek!
Gosh..when did it get there???

  21. Yes it is always vegetarian food served. But it think nowadays, the younger generation have stopped doing it after the 3rd anniversary.(not sure about this) but I'm one of them.

  22. Claire, don't worried about the pigmentation. It will happened when our hormone started to change. I got mine early due to the early changes. Even worst than yours. Nothing seems help. Besides all the cream I tried is highly contained of mercury causing my skin breakdown sometime ago. Finally, I started taking a new health suppliment. Have you ever heard of NUskin brand ~ R2 ageloc. Highly recommended to you.
    However, hope you're enjoying your evening.

  23. mery: i think it is healthier..


    simpleperson: now you know.. :)


    kash: perhaps depend on individual families...

    kristy: i havent heard of it, does it help to cleanse our body cells and to rejuvenate them? :) I also have early pigmentation during pregnancy, esp on the arms...

  24. I used to have serious pigmentations on both cheeks and everyone thought I played golf for hours weekly! I never play golf and it is a time wasting game for me! Chinese doctors blamed that human's liver problems will show up as pigmentations on your cheeks. Same as skin problems must be due to internal issues somewhere.

    So I was advised to drink fruit juice everyday. I had to blend those USA celery, yellow pear, green apple and carrot. After 1 week, the brownish start to disappear and by a month it was almost gone. You can see my handsome face in my Metrosexual Man's post. Good luck.
