Going to the mountains for pimple cream

At the end of my now controversial column about why I like Christmas better than Chinese New Year, I wrote:
"Hey, I want to make money as much as the next guy. And find a pimple cream that actually works."

A reader on Facebook, Grace Loh, instead of wondering why a man in his 40s still has acne problem, suggested that I try the Himalayan brand.

At first, I thought, "I'm not going to the Himalayas for pimple cream. I would only go as far as Bukit Batok."

And then I realised Himalayan could be the name of a brand.

This was confirmed when I went to the Guardian outlet in Lot 1 shopping centre and found skin products by a company called Himalaya Herbals.

But no pimple cream.

Then last night, imagine my joy when I spotted the Himalaya Herbals Acne-n-Pimple Cream at the Watsons outlet at Yew Yee Point.

It was $10.90 and best of all, on sale at 20 per cent off. Score!

I just hope it works. No pressure, Grace.
