Dr D Aesthetics – Venus Legacy

Having previously attended the Gorgeous From Every Angle event hosted by Venus Concepts, I was exposed to their non-surgical aesthetic technologies which are well known to be safe yet effective.

Popular among local celebrities like Paul Foster and my fave Fann Wong, I was curious to try out the treatments for myself and witness its magic!

Hence, I made an appt with Dr D Aesthetics Medical Clinic who uses their machines. 

Newly opened in March this year and conveniently located at Middle Road, you’re in good hands with Dr David. 

Dr. D Aesthetics provides a holistic approach to aesthetics.  Using the latest clinically proven, non-invasive and non-surgical technologies for their treatments; they are tailored individually to provide patients with the most cost effective treatments, at the same time minimizing the pain and downtime that patients would experience to enhance their looks and radiate their skin from within. All their medical aesthetic treatments are FDA-approved. 

Look at all the awards and accreditation that Dr David has gotten over the years!
After a short consultation with Dr David, we decided to use the Venus Legacy and target the cellulite on my upper thighs, near my bum area.

Here’s some info about the Venus Legacy - 

VENUS LEGACY – BODY CONTOURING & CELLULITE REDUCTION
Venus Legacy™ is one of the latest machines for combating stubborn fat areas and cellulite. It combines VariPulse™ technology with proven 3D™ MP2  energy, causing it to travel deeper into the skin; resulting in increased blood circulation, immediate plumping, and glowing skin.
Features of Legacy:

  • Non-invasive and minimal downtime
  • Comfortable procedure
  • Non-surgical Body Contouring, Wrinkle Reduction, Circumferential Reduction, Skin Tightening, stretch marks, and cellulite reduction
  • Legacy utilizes multi-polar radio frequency and Pulsed Magnetic fields which produce a soothing and therapeutic heat matrix over the skin
I was quite nervous because from the teaser experience I had at the event, 
I knew that it would be a little hot and painful at times.
The heat was necessary to be effective, and like I always say, beauty comes at a price right?
Picture

First, they put some cooling gel to make the process more bearable.

The aesthetician then used the handpiece to go over and over the targeted area. The handpiece was heated up until it started to hurt and she decreased the temp.
The whole process lasted 10 mins for each side (felt like the longest 10 mins of my life).

​However, the results were astonishing.
​I kid you not, no photoshop was done. 

I was standing in the exact positions before and after. 
Just look at the distance the side of my thighs are from the side of the frames before and after the Venus Legacy treatment!

This is super exciting because it can also be done to your upper arms, waist, abdomen areas to target stubborn extra fats. 
Venus Legacy can also remove stretch marks, which is really awesome.

Definitely gotta make an appt with Dr David and try it out for yourself!

Unboxing the Asus ZenFone Max


Was really excited to receive the ASUS Zenfone Max and couldn’t wait to unbox it!

Introducing the latest Android 5.0 (Lollipop) smartphone with a high-capacity 5000mAh battery that can function as a built-in power bank to charge other electronic devices. (Definitely my favourite feature hehe)

The Zenfone Max also has an IPS display protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4 and a 13MP camera with laser auto focus technology for a nearly-instant focusing time of just 0.03 seconds. 

Here’s what’s so special about the Zenfone Max summarized:

Ultimate convenience: Built-in, easy-to- use power-bank capability boosts or even fully charges other devices on the go. Using the feature is as quick and simple as connecting a second device to ZenFone Max’s micro-USB port using a USB on-the- go (OTG*) cable and sitting back. 
No need to bring out another powerbank!

H Ultimate display: Beautiful 5.5-inch IPS HD panel with latest-generation Corning ® Gorilla ® Glass 4 offers double the drop-damage resistance as well as a  2.5x increase in retained strength and is 85% less likely to break in daily use — making it safer and stronger than ever before.

 Ultimate speed: 13MP PixelMaster camera with ultra-fast laser auto-focus for point-and- shoot simplicity and total clarity in just 0.03 seconds
You guys know that phone cameras are my life right?

​Here’s a pic to testify my trust  in their camera (no edit!!): 

ZenFone Max is a slim 5.2mm, and available in two classic colours to complement casual or businesswear — Pure White and Osmium Black.

The Black has a Leathery finish and the White has an Eggshell Finish (someone go touch an egg and tell me how to describe that LOL)

Des Chow – Your personal hair stylist!

Picture

(No filter) – 100% true Colour!
With a blink of an eye, it’s been almost a month of sporting my striking blue hair!
I’ve been having mixed feelings about it, because of how vibrant it is. 
It leaves a very strong impression, and it’s super easy to spot me in a crowd. 
But well, it kinda affects my job opportunities and also how people see me. 
It is also rather hard to match my clothes, I find it really jarring to have too many colours on me so I’ve been sticking to my neutrals and blacks (had to stay away from whites for a while because the blue was leaking colour for a long time)
I’ve also had people ask me if I cosplay. I don’t. 

All that being said, I’m still glad I had a go at the blue colour, it’s prolly one of the things you should do in your life for once at least. 

The hair dye used is by a brand called Pravana. They are colour experts and carry award winning colour products used by professional hair stylists. 
The colour has been really lasting over the past month (both good and bad)
Of course, I still had to use navy Blue shampoo to maintain the colour but was still really impressed with how blue it stayed throughout the month.

The bad part being, I wanted the colour to fade faster and stay less vibrant hahaha but it’s just a personal preference.

Yunomori Onsen & Spa is finally in SG!!

Yunomori Onsen & Spa, Leading Authentic Japanese Onsen in Southeast Asia Finally Arrives in Singapore!
I’m sure you’ve heard of the hype, it’s all over social media. 

Was super honoured to be amongst the first to explore Yunomori Onsen & Spa (Yunomori)’s very first outlet at Kallang Wave Mall L2. 

Yunomori is renowned for its unique experience of marrying both authetic Japanese and Thai therapies – onsen therapy and Thai spa treatments. 
Using the natural healing properties of mineral water and benefits of spa treatments, these relaxing aquatic therapies can cater to the health needs of everyone!

Spanning 16,000 square feet, Yunomori boasts a total of 11 pools with six variations of bath and other facilities such as sauna, steam bath, massage & spa treatment rooms, a dining café and a lounge. It is a place where you can enjoy the best of both worlds, as Yunomori offers a holistic retreat with a combination of authentic Japanese onsen and traditional Thai message.

Guests will be spoilt for choice with a wide variety of onsen baths available such as Soda spa, Silk bath, Jet bath, Bubble bath, Cold bath and Hot bath. From the simple and traditional to the modern and technological, each bath provides a relaxing and therapeutic experience as well as its unique health and beauty benefits. 

Let me bring you on a tour around the place!

Forgot to take an actual photo of the entrance but it is very similar to this. 
There’s a lot of wood and natural materials used in the onsen to create a very relaxing place of respite.
The yukatas available for males.
(and yes, you do need to remove all your clothes. 
Only a small towel to wipe your sweat is allowed into the Onsen area!)
Female Yukatas are brighter in colour and are available in 2 sizes. 
If you’re not comfortable going full monty (naked), you may request for a tube top and some undies that you can wear into the bathing pools.
There are complimentary lockers available for you to place your items and clothes
​while you enjoy the facilities of the onsen. 
There are also hangers provided to ensure that your clothes do not get crumpled. 
So thoughtful!
The locker works via a key fob so simply tap your fob on the black knob and twist.

Mobile phones are not allowed in the dressing and onsen area 
(you wouldn’t want someone taking photos of you naked right?)
So please leave them in the locker!

Counters available to dry your hair, do your makeup etc.
These showers are super interesting cause you sit down on the stools provided to shower. 
This is to prevent customers from spraying/splashing water at each other accidentally during a shower. 
In house shampoo, conditioner and soap provided for use.

Their spa products by Puri Alchemy are 100% organic and chemical free. 
The brand has won numerous awards as well.
Body masks, scrubs and massage oil are also available for sale.

Now that you’re clean, let’s hit the tubs!

These are the jet baths (39.5 – 41 deg)
which help take away all your stress!
​The jet streams can stimulate blood circulation
Soda bath (38.5-39.5 deg)
Features tech imported directly from Japan!
The water is enriched with a high concentration of natural carbon dioxide
which can increase blood oxygen levels, improve circulation,
reduce high blood pressure and also detoxify the blood
Bubble bath (38.5-39.5 deg)
Imbued with nutrients of carefully balanced minerals.
The arranged temperature and foam will help create a holistic, rejuvenating experience.
Silk bath (38.5-39.5 deg)
The silky hot water reacts with large amounts of micro-bubbles containing hydrogen.
The bath has a soothing nature, helping to relax muscles and
alleviate problems such as rheumatic, arthritic aches, pains and mental stress.
​Enjoy as the bath nourishes your body tissues, tighten the skin and improve skin elasticity!
Onsen bath
This is the hot bath at 41-44 degrees to help relief joints
​and muscular tension, as well as detoxify the body. 
The hot bath is only available for the men. 
Cold Bath to cool down
The water is set to 17 to 19 degrees.
The water will stimulate the body’s natural energy and nerve endings. 
It can also boost anti-ageing effects by closing the pores and tighten the skin!
I’ve also heard that going from the hot bath to the cold bath can help improve your blood circulation!
So it is advised to cool down using the cold bath or rain showers once you’re done with the hot baths.
Sauna 
95-100 degrees
To encourage perspiration for ultimate purification.
Opens up pores and cleanses skin
(Only available for males)
Steam Room also available.

Love the minimalist touches in the room. 
Notice that all the corners of the room are curved to help you really relax and feel comfortable.

Dining Cafe

You don’t even need to leave the onsen for your meals. 
Simply dine in!
Their food is really delicious and affordable (because hey, the boss of the onsen also owns Ramen Champion)
I strongly recommend going for the onsen eggs and salmon skewers!

Also, FREE WIFI available here!!

SkinPerfect SG – PPL treatment {Review}

Prior to this, it’s been a while since I did a facial because well no time, no money, no sponsors hahahah
BUT, I’ve always known of the importance of a regular facial to maintain your skin so I was ecstatic to be working with SkinPerfect. 

SkinPerfect’s goal is to provide the best skincare solution where their treatments are based on science, expertise in ingredients function and innovation to create specific skincare treatments.
 
They have won various awards such as from SimplyHer Smart Shopper 2014 and Harpers Bazaar 2015 – Best Skin Corrector! 
Was really excited to try out their award winning services for myself.

To start off the facial, I went into the consultation room with the outlet manager, where she did a skin analysis for me. 

SkinPerfect uses an advanced computerized skin analysis system that magnifies the image of your skin beyond the naked eye. Then, a detailed consultation will be conducted, mapping out your facial skin issues. 

I was really impressed with the skin analysis, definitely the most accurate and advanced system I’ve ever seen!

As you can see in the above image, my pigmentation problem is quite serious  :<
Hence I was recommended to do the PPL treatment which can also target pigmentation. 

What does PPL stand for and what does it do?
 Uses Light Laser Technology to deliver a safe and effective Pure Pulse Light (PPL) 
- Kills bacteria on skin’s surface and within the pores
– Evens out and brightens skin tone

- Encourages collagen stimulation helping to firm and tighten skin 
- Actively reduces appearance of fine lines over a treatment course
– Clears out dead skin cells, dirt particles and makeup residue trapped within pores
– Decreases sebum (oil) production, thus reducing the appearance of enlarged pores
– Selectively targets pigments and lightens them through the body’s metabolic process
– Does not cause trauma, redness, or thinning of the skin = NO DOWN TIME!

Sounds super good right? 
Can’t wait to get started!

Let’s take a selfie before the facial!

A tube dress is provided for you to change into. 

Applying the pore packs to remove white and blackheads
The impurities on my face that got removed by the pore packs!!
Okay I know I look damn weird like alien but this was for the PPL treatment. 
They pulse a very strong light into your skin so goggles are provided to protect your eyes. 
The light is able to penetrate within the layers of your skin and perform wonders!
As you can see, no redness = no downtime!
Immediately after the facial, you can continue your daily activities with no fear. 
My skin also looked more radiant, pigmentation lighter in colour and my skin felt firmer!
The Complete Facial Programme costs around $300. 
But be rest assured that you’d get your money’s worth!
The technology and machines used by Skin Perfect are really great and I’ve never been this impressed with a facial!

You can find out more about them on their website and social media platforms:

This April to August, PUTIEN shares its wealth of golden-shelled succulent goodness, specially air-flown from Duo Tou Village in the Fujian province of China through PUTIEN Clams Festival. (Can you believe my excitement?)

These seasonal, fresh clams can grow up to 6cm long and are prized for their sweet, delicate and meaty flesh that matches up to a wide variety of flavours. Their natural sweetness and texture are retained even after cooking.

Duo Tou Clams Festival Dishes include:

Picture

Baked PUTIEN Clam served on Hot Plate:  Brilliantly prepared with sea salt as the hallmark component of a fresh seafood dish. You don’t even need the extra salt because the freshness of the clams allows you to taste the natural saltiness of the sea!
Picture

Stir-fried PUTIEN Clam with Ginger and Spring Onion: Brings out the natural sweetness of the clams. Can’t go wrong with this.
Picture

Steamed PUTIEN Clam with Wine: A chef’s special, steamed upright with Huadiao wine to release a heady aroma. Rmbr to drink up all the leftover broth, all the goodness is in there!
Picture

Steamed PUTIEN Clam with Minced Garlic: A homely favourite, the clams are steamed lightly with minced garlic, spring onions and chillies
Picture

Salted Spicy PUTIEN Clam: Seasoned liberally and recommended to savour cautiously, with an ice cold beer in hand! Fried to perfection.
Picture

PUTIEN Clam Omelette: Healthy and reminiscent of home cooking. A delightful twist on your normal oyster omelette!
Picture

PUTIEN Clam Soup with Toufu Meatballs: Traditionally prepared, clams are boiled with an assortment of cauliflower, snow peas and tofu meatballs to highlight its natural sweetness. The tofu meatballs are made from homemade tofu, never had anything like it.

(Some of the) Top 10 dishes at PUTIEN

We also got to try some of the Top 10 dishes at PUTIEN!
Picture

Deep Fried Pigs Trotters with Salt & Pepper. PUTIEN only uses the two front legs of the pig for their trotters, meaning there’s plenty of collagen, meat and fat instead of bone!
Picture

Stir-Fried Yam. PUTIEN takes the best part of whole yams and cuts them into cubes. Leaving the outside nicely crisp, and the inside pleasantly doughy, milky, and naturally sweet.
Picture

Seaweed with Mini Shrimps, the perfect appetizer. Made from seaweed that is taken from the head of the harvest, this means that only the sweetest and most chewy seaweed is used.
Picture

Fried Heng Hwa Bee Hoon – MY FAVOURITE MUST ORDER DISH. The beehoon is handmade, dried out in the sun and you simply cannot get this taste anywhere else other than PUTIEN! Every mouthful of beehoon is packed with so much flavor. Quality and freshness in the ingredients really does make a difference!
Picture

Braised Pig Intestine. only the most delicate parts of the intestine are used in the preparation of this dish. Meticulously folded over by hand, it’s a guarantee that there is a springiness to every bite!

Desserts

Picture

Purple Sweet Potato with Pumpkin Cream – I don’t even normally eat sweet potato but this was really good.
Picture

Putian Loquat in Herbal Jelly – refreshing to end off your meal
