I like Clove Two of our The Star newspaper. The only reason why I buy the paper is because I want to read the World section and also the comic section. On Mondays, I look forward to the ‘Then Again’ column by Mary Schneider. Apart from that, there’s Clove Two.
But Clove Two used to be rather good because they had a lot of helpful articles and insightful info about the world that women live in. But recently (actually, it’s been a long time ever since), I find Clove Two a total gobberdook (no such word but who cares!) because the whole section is nothing but ads.
For example, there’s this article on anti-aging regimen that I went into because…well, if there’s a regimen, then I wanna know, you get what I mean? But the moment I went in, there’s a huge feature of The Zelens Skin Science skincare range product there…and I am like, “OK, cool. This is an ad so they’re hardly going to be neutral about things, so…ah well” and I clicked off.
I mean, let’s face it, all of us want a little bit of help in terms of trying to maintain or keep aging away. But the only way to do is, the most natural, actually, is to get loads of sleep, drink lots of water, eat a lot of vegetables and fruits, exercise and consume a balanced diet.
End of story. Therefore, these advertorials simply fly by me all the time. I use creams and all that but it’s not THE REGIMEN that I am looking for.
If Clove Two want to keep readers like me, they better start writing some USEFUL stuff and look beyond the buck that these product companies are shoving up their A--
