Limaran and I have been leading a relatively healthy lifestyle for the past 5 years and we are seeing quite amazing results; both internally & externally. There are usually 2 reasons why people choose to lead a healthy lifestyle - for vanity or for health reasons. But whatever motivates you, know that you will be getting results for both!
As I have moved into my 30s this year and seeing how some close friends who are starting to get health problems due to lack of exercise, poor eating habits and work stress, I realise how important it is to continue to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
A humble advice to everyone is to fix an annual health check on your birthday month so that you will actively have your health in check. And if the results are not as ideal, it will be the best time to make a nice birthday resolution. =)
I got my health check done with NTUC Income recently as they’re having a superb promotion.
For NTUC Income IncomeShield policyholders who pass all four tests of the Orange Health Screening, you will receive a $50 CapitaMallvoucher. If you’re currently not a NTUC Income policyholder, you will receive a $50 discount on first-year premium if you decide to sign up for Enhanced IncomeShield plan. How amazing is that right?
I was wondering to myself why did NTUC Income come up with such a good deal. And the answer is in their slogan for Orange Health. “Staying healthy is not easy. But we’ll reward you for it.”
So what are the 4 tests for Orange Health?
1) Body Mass Index (BMI)
2) Blood Pressure
3) Blood Glucose
These four tests are commonly used to detect diseases early for people who look or feel well. They are recommended by the Health Promotion Board for general health screening.
Orange Health screening is conducted by medical professionals from Unity and Healthway and it helps you to find out the general status of your health. Each Orange Health Screening is offered at a special rate of $15 (inclusive of GST).
Here are some photos of me going through Orange Health Screening.

The whole health screening took less than 20mins and here are my test results:
When the pharmacist was going through the test results and told me that all the readings are really good, the kind of joy that I got surpassed the compliments I get about my physique. I mean, having a lean and mean body is really cool, but knowing that your health is in place and everything inside is working fine is way more important!I strongly encourage everyone to go for the Orange Health Screening. For your convenience, there are various locations islandwide to choose from. More information can be found here.
Apart from the website, if you’re looking to find out more about Orange Health Event or NTUC Income, head down to Mapletree Business City on 10 July, from 11am to 2pm and 4pm to 7pm.

The blender starts as soon as I pedal. Working hard for my juice
For some reason, the juice tasted really good. Maybe because I worked for it =)
So if you’re working at Mapletree Business City or around the vicinity, do drop by for your free juice as well as to find out more about Orange Health Screening.
