Hello it’s me again!
I have always been in love with smoothies and smoothie bowls, and my TOP go-to smoothie has been the Chocolate Abs from Project Acai since they opened 😛
There’s actually so many more places that serves acai bowls that I’ve yet to try, so I’m gonna do that one at a time, also, they are priced a little steep sometimes so when I’m saving up $ it’s a luxury to have them =(
Also, my bf did mention that Wild Honey serevs really good acai bowl as well but at a main dish price.. can’t wait to check more of them out and add on to my list of good bowls!
Hello!!! I’m back to share a great place that I have been patronizing frequently for close to a year already!
I’ve been with Salon Plus @ Far East Plaza eversince I chanced upon their advertorial on IG that shouts $149 for COLOUR + TREATMENT + CUT. It was such a great deal because I honestly damn budget and cannot bear to spend so much on my hair T_T…. but my hair was getting way too long and unhealthy, that’s very annoying 🙁
So prior to my first ever haircut and hair makeover, my hair was pretty long and dry… I also wash my hair very often cos I teach yoga and workout almost daily, and I usually wash my hair twice a day 🙁
So this was my hair before I went to get it revived!!!:
I also received lots of compliments with my new haircut.. Also, the place is comfortable and clean! I am quite particular about cleanliness so Salon Plus is definitely a thumbs up for me 🙂
Also they’ll serve you hot tea / water!!! P/s. the salon’s really cold thoooooo!!!
Warning: Spamming a series of selfies with my hair on point (I know a bit messy sometimes but I love the slightly messy look :P)
$149 for COLOUR + TREATMENT + CUT
Few years ago, I did my lips fillers once because my lips had no shape and I always wanted more plumped and defined lips.
So recently, I decided to go for it again and did it The Aesthetics Central!
Honestly I’m a weakling for tiny needles and was scared of the pain… but no pain no gain…
I am so Glad I decided to go for it because I am truly amazed and pleased with the results!!!
The process was really simple. They started by applying numbing cream around and on my lips and I waited for 30 mins. Then went into the room and got my fillers done.
My lips were a bit swelled and bruised for the first two days which was really normal. After which, everything’s good again.
Admittedly, It was a little uncomfortable for me, however generally it was bearable. I just closed my eyes through the whole process and opened my eyes to more defined and pouty lips.
Check out the differences:

Dr Chow really did a great job for me so if you’re looking for recommendations, I would say please go to him! He’s really gentle and patient so rest assure you’ll be in good hands 🙂
Moreover I’m not someone who applies lipstick often because i always felt that my lips are not pretty and it’s hard for me to draw because I don’t have a defined Cupid bow so on bad days it’s very ugly if I try to “draw” a nice lip line.
But ever since I got my lip fillers done again, I started using my lipsticks again, FINALLY! And for those who want to know whether you should do it or not, I highly recommend. The pain for 5 minutes in exchange for 9-12 months of nice lips, absolutely worth it 😀
All my friends said my lips were really nicely done and they loved it on me as well! 🙂
This is the clinic that I went to:
8 Eu Tong Sen Street#11-89
The Central Office One,Singapore 059818
They also provide tons of other beauty/ aesthetics services and treatments, so feel free to check them out 😉
And after this I’m also considering going for eye fillers so that my eyes will look less tired 24/7… :B
Just awhile back during end March, YM and Habitat shared an outdoor event and I couldn’t be more grateful to be part of it. (Though there were some hiccups here and there…)
Seeing the turn out was great. We had to keep expanding space and maximise the areas that we had.
Allow me to let the pictures do the talking 🙂 Thank you again our amazing photographer Debra for the lovely photos.
After the event, the boyfriend came over and we had our meal at Habitat! There’s a huge variety of food options, yums!
We went to run some errands and headed to town for a bit before heading back to rest and takeaway dinner.. hehe.
Was another great sunday with Bubs 🙂
MY FIRST AND DEFINITELY NOT THE LAST TRIP TO LONDON.
I am so in love with this City! I love every part about this place. The amazing shopping (it’s so crazy!), the friendly people, the food (but of course it’s not as extensive and cheap as compared to home a.k.a. singapore)…
We flew from Amsterdam to London. (Omg, lugging our huge ass luggages around is the worst… T_T) and having to carry them UP the stairs from the apartment @ Amsterdam and back down when we left… and when we arrived at London we had to do the same for our apartment, nearly died. 🙁
We continued shopping for a bit but I got really tired as my bags got heavier. = spending more and more… and maxed out my budget for the day. T_T Went back to place our stuffs and chill then headed for dinner!
So this was the day when S flew to London and we were supposed to meet for late lunch after 🙂 He picked this place called Brat… and the food was so amazing!
We waited quite awhile for him cos there was a train delay or something from the airport 🙁 Glad we still made it to the restaurant and had such a scrumptious meal!
After this late lunch we went to find their old friend and hung out at the park nearby.. super chill life. I love London 🙂 their friend was dogsitting this super adorable frenchie called Bijou!
S came over to our apartment and stayed over with me that day hehe. And then we went out the next day to do some shopping for him!!
We could only make it for the brunch hour cos we had other plans.. but I heard it’s always fully booked in the evenings. And we also saw snaking queues when we passed by on other evenings.!!
The next day, I went for class early in the morning, then headed back and went to Borough Seafood market!!! was so excited because think PAELLA, MUSSELS, PRAWNS etc etc……… i love :3
And we headed to meet Alvin to catch The Book Of Mormon musical. It was so hilarious!! hahaha thoroughly enjoyed it 😀
Home sweet home and down to our last final full day @ London :'(
But it started pouring like crazy almost the entire day and I was perpetually freezing :'(
It was a day out to Camden town but it was really boring for me, lol. We had lunch at Honest Burgers! I AM SO SO IN LOVE WITH THE FRIES. SO GOOD OMG I WANNA EAT IT NOW WHILE TYPING THIS =(
So Camden town market was really not our kind of place to shop but it was definitely nice to see how is it like there. It was so cold we couldn’t stay there for long because it was raining and we cant get outdoors.. we ended up getting a ViaVan (super good app we had lots of discounted rides from referring) back to the Oxford street for more shopping…..
Did some last minute shopping @ Selfridges and almost couldn’t get out of that place cos we saw so many other brands we didn’t discovered the previous times and it’s like a black hole keeping us in it for so long.. each time we said ok let’s go we see another brand that we like 🙁
Took us lots of discipline to finally step out of the huge ass dream departmental store!! Then we headed to Fortnum Mason to do some souvenir gift shopping before meeting Alvin for our last lunch in London =(
We did touristy stuff on our last full day in Paris because we didn’t really get a chance to the previous days due to the horrible weather 🙁 Stormy, windy and freezing cold 🙁
But thankfully, the weather was close to perfect during our last day there !!! 😀
check out my bored face~ “OK BYE IM OUT”
OK fine this was the only reason why I wanted to visit the museum but it was swarmed with tourists and it was so hard to find (I mean we had to walk through the entire museum just for this art haha)
Went to visit the Louvre museum which bored me to death…. I even throwed a mini tantrum at my sis (hehehe), I know what a joke 😀 and headed back out for photos the 2nd time because the weather was much better than 2 days before!!
lighting was so good 🙁
Museums are really not my thing so i got bored very quickly and cranky… LOL. and hungry so im hangry. HAHA oops
stopped by here to take a photo coz we TOURIST af!!! weather was great!
Lunch time!!! My sis booked a table at this restaurant famous for foie gras… @ Comptoir De la Gastronomie!
Of course we did not forget to order the French Onion soup!
SO SUPER GOOD
Sister’s foie gras dish which she loved!! She wanted to buy the spread back but was lazy THEN regretted.. proves how nice it is.
MY CRABMEAT PASTA WAS good too. Pasta texture was al dente the way I liked it. 🙂
WE REALLY SPAMMED TONS AND TONS OF PICTURES AT THE EIFFEL TOWER LOL
me doing my thing.. hehe 🙂 Such a beautiful day!
oh by the way… this kinder bueno ice cream is fantasticccccc!
Also queued for some desserts at the famous Pierre Herme but it was so underwhelming 🙁 the first day we bought a few pastries and desserts from random cafes were much nicer!!!
After visiting the Eiffel we went back to do some shopping!
I love Paris so much! Even though the city is really not as clean or safe but it’s still so beautiful! 🙂
Back again! Moving on to Paris~
Rise & shine & prepped ourselves- eu route to Paris!
look @ my sister’s funny candid face HAHAHA, love u always 🙂
Casually taking my ootd along the hotel corridor LOL
(SORRY NOT SORRY FOR THE SPAMMMM)
We bought more Belgium chocolates for our train ride to Paris!
AND WE HAVE ARRIVED!! Then we booked an Uber to our hotel 🙂
we stayed at Trinite Haussman in Paris, located super near the Moulin Rogue Theatre! It’s also a walkable distance to Galleries Lafayette- a shopping haven for all luxury lovers and shoppaholics! Generally our hotel is very convenient, and is located in between two train stations, pretty easy to get around. Just that during the night time it’s a bit dangerous, IMO, also cos there are quite a few bars along the streets also.
Interior wise our hotel room was really small 🙁 as compared to our previous stay in Brussels (Courtyard Mariott) and other parts of Europe…
Our first meal in Paris! My sister always has a list of places-to-eat and visit so this is one of it! This was at Café du centre, the food’s so amazing! We love the french onion soup and ravoli the most! and yay to free (& mostly warm) bread w butter everywhere.
Unfortunately for us… it rained the first 3 days while we were in Paris 🙁
very apt for the caption “Paris in the rain” 😛
It was constantly raining that day and our initial plan was to visit Eiffel Tower for the evening so we can look at it light up but due to the bad weather we didn’t in the end. And luckily we did not because the air is foggy so her friend who went took photos that could not even capture the pretty lights. ALSO because i was freezing in that weather!! It was 7-9 degrees, forecast stated that it felt like 4 degree celcius T_T
we walked along the streets after dinner and bought desserts back to our hotel!
oh ya our chocolates from Belgium for snacks hehehe
Was still feeling jet lagged 🙁 we had an early night again, hahaha.
Day 2 in Paris:
Headed on to Galleries Lafayett to window shop to see what luxury goods we want to get during the trip. The place was so swarmed with tourists, hahaha, all the rich people T_T
Had brunch at Angelina- they have the thickest chocolate ever, omg.
Had their signature hot chocolate which is REALLY RICH, and dense. LOL.
Ordered breakfast omelette which was meh, and our MUST-ORDER for every meal- French Onion Soup! Not bad tho 🙂
we ordered a lemon tart cos our hot chocolate was really wayyyyy to rich & thick for our tastebuds.
Weather was so bad. It was chilly not in a good way 🙁 Anyways wanted to take nice photos at this backdrop but the wind not helping at all, meh.
Went on to shop… this was at UO! bought this cardigan which was useless in protecting me from the cold -_-
Went to Louvre to take photos but it was really freezing cold 🙁 Worst still, the wind really froze my face. NOT JUST THAT OK, my sister’s phone got frozen from taking pictures so it shut off by itself, needed to get back indoors and the phone could only turn on after… Sighs. I literally couldn’t feel my face at all then. Really super unprepared for the weather, LOL.
OHMY IT WAS SO FREAKING COLD THAT MY sister’s iphone froze…… my face was frozen too… could barely feel anything at all, i couldn’t feel my nose T_T
We decided to head to a nearby cafe to had early dinner – coz that night my sis abandon me for one evening to attend her 2nd Sam smith concert. So i decided to make time for a spin class in Paris too 😀
Really enjoyed my spin class @ Paris!!! I attended it at Kiwill!!! Best thing is: FIRST CLASS IS FREE. And I’m so proud of myself coz I navigated by my own, hehe.
We picked a fairly better weathered day to head to Disneyland, the day it didn’t rain… hahaha.
Took the train all the way to Disneyland station, but little did we know that our transport passes only cover zone 1-3 and Disneyland was not included in these zones -__- but the metro/ train gantries just let us pass through like these when we insert our tickets, really think it should be made more known/ clearly.. Because upon reaching, we could not exit with our ticket, and got fined 35 euros each, on the spot T_T we were not the only ones! some other tourists got fined too. Sigh, they should up their public transport system.
Lunch was obviously themepark food… I had vege pasta sis had pizza.. food was so meh but garlic bread was yummy HEHE.
Unfortunately for us, we went on a public holiday, so it was so crowded and we had to queue for at least an hour for the rides… we queued till we felt so fatigue. And we didnt really fancy many of the rides because we’ve been to Tokyo’s Disneyland + Disneysea and HK disneyland, so some repeated rides or less thrilling ones we didn’t bother queueing. We also felt too old for the theme park shopping. hahaha.
i love u lil shit <3
We visited Walt disney studios coz only Paris has it!!!
After awhile we decided to take the long train ride back to the city~~ because we needed to head back to rest and prepare for Moulin Rogue that night!
Headed back to near our hotel and took awhile to pick a cafe to have our dinner because either
1. reviews were bad, 2. service was so bad the servers ignored us zzz
At some random cafe we picked- and as usual we had our favourite french onion soup and a main 🙂 We love every french onion soup we had in Paris!!! None of them disappointed us. hahaha
We both dressed up just to watch the show!!! It was freezing cold FYI… like 9 degree celcius, haha. Thankfully for us, our hotel was really near the theatre!! hahaha, like a 8 mins’ walk? (Walk back was so chilly almost died again :()
Anyway, about that show, I really loved the movie Moulin Rouge- it was so touching- obviously there was a love story. But of course the real show was nothing like that, heh. It was still great, just thought i’d watch it since we are already in Paris. My sis actually bought the tickets with drinks (champagne) but we exchanged for soft drinks instead, I don’t like champagne. LOL. Oh, I fell asleep halfway through the show, FYI, the show started at close to midnight, damn shag by then already.
Gonna be updating on my other days in Paris again, soonest!
Finally updating on my first EU trip this year with my sis (and mom joined halfway after!!)
Took a long flight from SG > Doha > Brussels!
Arrived in Brussels in the morning and My sis came to pick me up! 😀 😀
super duper happy to see this stupid face after 4ish months! We finally reunited and we were so happy T_T <3
We stayed at Courtyard Mariott- super convenient and near the train station, also train station to other cities!
After settling down and getting changed at the hotel we headed out to the city centre to explore our one & only day at Brussels… hehe
WHAT IS VISITNG BELGIUM WITHOUT HAVING BELGIUM WAFFLES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! omg everything looks so good and FYI i got a very sweet tooth so THIS is like heaven to me!
Find someone who looks at you like how I look at waffles :-))))
^this is the speculoos with white choc and banana!!!!!!!!!!! i really love it a lot tho it’s too sweet for my sis after after. Anything with banana/ white choc is BAE. (AND speculoos is like a basic flavour/ spread in europe- super good too)
Us being tourists…… eat waffles also gotta have a pic with it
And of course, we visited a few places of interests such as, the Grand Place at the City square.
Such scenic and beautiful buildings. But so swarmed with people!
It was chilly in Belgium when i arrived and am so not used to the cold weaather!!! Kept craving for hot stuff and bought myself a cup of hot chocolate to keep myself warm.
Photobombers in all my photos 🙁
WE ALSO HAD THE FAMOUS BELGIAN FRITES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sis queued for it outside while i found seats inside and waited in the warmth…
looks damn yummy but it actually tasted pretty norm. BUT I LOVE FRIES SO IT’S STIL YUMMY TO MEEEEEE 😛
We walked past another waffle shop and it was packed with people and there was a queue, sis said it is one of the “famous ones” so we decided to get another waffle also, HAHA
Belgium is also very known for beer….. especially craft beers i think? There’s a whole range of craft beers in everywhere!! Fancy!
Also went to see the Manneken Pis, just for the sake of it- and a selfie together just for keepsake, haha!
Belgium can be easily toured within a day, although we didnt exactly cover everything but we did complete most of the main attractions and the MUST-EAT(s). Belgium chocolates included!!!
FOR DINNER, we had MUSSELS!!! (I mean of course right!!!) It was a day of non stop eating. We had dinner early because we didn’t make any reservations and we were afraid it will get crowded if we go later. Also because I was starting to feel tired (jetlagged)
We went to Leon’s, which is very famous/ popular, it was yummy, but not the best I think? Also, it’s quite expensive and the service isn’t great :/
(P/S. really on point eyelashes much thanks to @diownbeauty. (I’ve been going to them for YEARS…)
Seeing all these photos now makes me miss traveling with my sister 🙁
Fun fact about me: I am a pescatarian for years, but never loved a lot of seafood, I eat mainly fish and prawns (if i dont have to peel them). I hardly eat shell fishes, never really liked or enjoyed clams/ mussels/ crabs/ oysters. But ever since this trip to Europe, I fell in love with mussels. (I SPECIALLY LOVE WHITE WINE GARLIC SAUCE/ BROTH, even when i didnt use to love clams- i.e. vongole, HAHA)
After our early dinner, we went to Delirium Cafe for beer! 🙂
Funny because we only have super big notes, cos i changed 500 denominated euros 🙁 And the bar did not have change, so we tried using our cards, but was unable to get through that time for some reason, tried numerous times and the nice guy at the bar decided to give us the beers for free! Half pint each for us, yay.
We ordered craft beers, but it didn’t taste very good, a bit weird. I prefer my lager beers 🙂
Was still bright outside when we made our way back. Both of us were tired, since my sis traveled late the day before and woke up early to fetch me from the airport.
We bought 16 piece of chocolates back since Belgium is flooded with chocolate stores, hehe. This was so good too. LOVE IT. (I am a chocolate fan by the way :))
This post sums up our one & only day in Belgium!!!! Coming up next would be my post on Paris 😉
BIG SHOUT OUT TO STUDIO155SG & LAVO for the VIP tix!!! <3

that’s all for day1! waiting for the photos of day2 to load before I update in awhile, cya!!
