While some girls call diamonds their best friends, I may be a little different. Not that I would mind receiving some of those sparkly gemstones for my upcoming birthday *cough*october31st*cough*
But a diamond has never rescued me from my stomach having a crazy circus run. When I don't have meals consistently at the right time, have foods that are too oily, too spicy, too milky, you name it, my tummy will act up. Which is pretty much all the time.
Probiotics on the other hand, which is another name for friendly bacteria helps neutralize the imbalances in your digestive system while keeping it healthy - and in my case, less embarrassing trips to the toilet.
A bottle of Yakult may be small but don't be fooled by its size. It was developed by medical doctor and microbiologist, Dr Shirota back in 1935. Not just some business man who just wanted to create a regular drink to sell. Each bottle of Yakult contains over 30 billion good bacteria, also known as Shirota (named after its founder) to keep the digestive system healthy. I take one each morning, and it's become so much a part of my daily routine just as much as coffee.
The Yakult that we get in Malaysia is made right here in Seremban, Negeri Sembilan where their factory is. They welcome visitors if you ever want to make a day trip out of it. You can spice up your dating routine instead of just going to the movies, no?
Or even better than a trip to the factory, why not visit the country where Yakult was born? For the first time ever Yakult is giving you a once in a lifetime trip for you and your family to visit their own brand ambassadors!
Malaysia's very own sweetheart Lara Lana and her so cool parents, I wish they were mine, Scha Alyahya and Awal Ashaari. Can you believe Lara's only 2 years old and has 2.2million followers on Instagram? You'll be making ALOT of people jealous when you win the trip.
For details on how to win this once in a lifetime trip watch the video here, and the full terms and conditions can be found here.
One small bottle, one big trip.
Doesn't a particular Lionel Messi come to mind? A reminder that some of the best things in life come in small packages. I still want a diamond for my birthday if my boyfriend is reading this. Good luck!
