Paddy Hills Buffet

paddy 9

For my birthday this year, I brought my family to Paddy Hills to try their famous All-you-can-eat buffet. I’ve seen the whole world featuring it & felt really fomo, SO I TRAVELLED FROM EAST TO WEST just to try it!

paddy 1

Truffle Capalleni 

I tried this before during The Closet Lover app launch & I loved it.

Presenting to you, THE HOT FAVOURITE
Hei rice

My family don’t eat beef so we told them to remove the steak. It’s actually squid ink rice with soft boil in the middle. Extremely flavourful but not overpowering. This was TOOO GOOD, we had a total of 7 plates.

paddy 4Mala xiang guo

Being a mala queen, I really liked this dish although it’s not spicy enough. Suitable for parents who love mala but can’t take too spicy. Fyi Fiona, y’all should sell the fried lotus chips on its own, it’s so addictive!

paddy 6Rosti with Sausage and mushroom ragout. Unlike the typical rosti we eat at marche with thick shredded potato, their rostis are made of thin potato strips.  Thus, you won’t get full easily. I loved this dish too and personally had 2 plates of it.

paddy

HAHAH, look at my greedy Daisy. There are outdoor seatings available so if you’re thinking of bringing your furbabies, you can inform them beforehand.

paddy 7From left: Fish Taco, Thai Top Shell Salad, Shrimp Roll

I highly recommend the Fish Taco and Thai Top Shell. My dad ate 5 Fish Taco because it was so good. Personally, Im not a fan of the Shrimp Roll because I felt that it tasted very gelat.


paddy 14

Metaiko Toast

My brother thought it was Caviar… hahaha! Anyway, this makes a very good tapas & appetiser. If you’re looking for Tapas catering for your event, do approach @paddy.hills too.

paddy 10Look at the big plate of chocolate skewers, they included a Chocolate fountain inside with unlimited amount of fruit skewers, perfect way to end off your buffet by satisfying your sweet tooth.


paddy 15

Signature berry ball

Their famous pancake made into a ball & they topped it off with premium vanilla ice cream because it definitely doesn’t taste cheap. By the time we wanted to have our dinner, it was already times up so we only managed to share 2 berry balls.

paddy 11
paddy hills

I highly recommend everyone to give the paddy hills buffet a try. It may be a little pricey but they serve steak (which i didn’t feature here because I don’t take beef) & oysters to make your money worth. I only managed to eat 2 oysters because I came late.

Would highly advise you guys to come on time as there’ll be slight waiting time (8 mins max) in between the dishes as it’s freshly prepared for you on the spot. Not your typical buffet where it’s already prepped & placed out in the open.

Feel free to make your reservations for the buffet as they’re ALWAYS fully booked.

Thank you paddy hills & Fiona for having me!
I’ll be back soon x

 

The Clifford Aesthetic – Face Silhouette

Edited-17

Growing up, my mom was a natural beauty who doesn’t need makeup to look good. I mean, she don’t put makeup at all, even to a wedding dinner. But age is really catching up and as much as we’ll like to blame it on gravity, her skin has been sagging quite a bit and it’s showing.

Edited-15

God answered our prayers because my mom was given this chance to look 10 years younger with Dr Gerard Ee from The Clifford Aesthetics.

Edited-8

https://drgerardee.com/

Dr Gerard Ee is a member of the Royal College of Surgeons (Edinburgh) and has a special interest in minimally invasive surgery. His expertise in this field made together with so the many positive reviews and his impeccable experience made it our greatest honor to work with him.

Edited-23

Getting numbing cream applied before we inject some anaesthetic inside.

Edited-31Measurements are a must because we definitely do not want an uneven face after the procedure.

Edited-36

One of the most commonly asked question would be:
“DOES IT HURT?!”

Based on my mom’s reviews, the most “painful” part would be getting the anaesthetic injections, not even the procedure itself. But she rated the pain 3/10, slightly more than an ant bite.

Edited-47

Let the threadlift begin

Some background on what Threadlift is – “it is the insertion of a dissolvable thread that focuses on tightening the surrounding tissues in your face and increase blood supply which in turn can lead to healthier, firmer skin. I would consider it a mildly invasive aesthetic procedure.”

Edited-55
Edited-57

Despite the numbing cream and anaesthetic jabs, my mom was still able to feel Dr Gerard Ee pulling the threads in her face however, there wasn’t any pain at all.

Edited-65

Edited-66

Because my mom’s laughline was really deep, threadlift was not enough, thus Dr Gerard Ee suggested pumping in a little bit of filler to fill the line.

What is filler?

“Injectable filler is a soft tissue filler injected into the skin to help fill in facial wrinkles, restoring a smoother appearance. Most of these wrinkle fillers are temporary because they are eventually absorbed by the body. Some people may need more than one injection to achieve the wrinkle-smoothing effect.”

Edited-62Messaging the filler into her face to ensure that it spreads out evenly.

Edited-74Getting some into her undereye area as well.

Edited-76

The whole process only took 15 minutes, however if you are thinking of getting it done during lunch time, since The Clifford Aesthetics is located at the heart of CBD, making it extremely convenient to head down for a quick pick me up, do factor in an additional 40 minutes for the numbing cream to set in.

For the final reveal

IMG_2947Before

After

The difference was so huge that until today, my mom is still in disbelief that she was given this opportunity. Hahaha so cute right.

Personally, if you’re someone whose skeptical about getting minor aesthetic enhancement because you label it as being “fake” or “unnatural”, trust me, my mindset was similar to yours too. But over the years, I’ve learnt that being born in an era where we’re given a second, third, fourth etc chance to reborn and look younger, we should really count our blessings.

Back then, if you told Audrey Hepburn that she can maintain her looks even at 55 years old, she would tell you to stop lying. hahaha

Then, it dawned on me that I should really cherish this luxury and not be so opinionated against Aesthetic procedures, thus I did my double eyelids 2 years ago too.

Nonetheless, if you’re thinking of getting a face lift whether is it for yourself, your mom or your dad, I’ll definitely recommend The Clifford Aestheticshttps://cliffordclinic.com/face/silhouette/ 

There’s a price to pay for everything and if it’s a price that can boost your confidence and self esteem, I believe it’s definitely something worth spending on.

We don’t get to live life twice, why not live it beautifully.

OSIM’S uLove 2 (4手天王)

 

osim 8

How I spent my thursday night last week, I was invited to the launch of OSIM’S uLove 2 (4手天王). I love getting massages & I always exploit my cousin’s Osim when I go over, so I was really excited to try their new massage chair.

We were invited into a room to enjoy a personal 30 minutes massage on the OSIM uLove 2 (4手天王). What I really needed after a long day at work.

With the uLove 2(4手天王)’s patented V-Hand Massage and 720-degree roller balls, it mirrors a masseuse’s hand grip, offering us users a personal touch! The 720 degree roller balls rotate in 360 degree in both direction, ensuring every inch of our body is fully massaged.

I’ve been on so many massage chairs & none of them felt as realistic as this!

Screen Shot 2018-09-28 at 11.01.22 pm

Nothing completes a good massage like a nice calming background music, OSIM uLove 2 (4手天王)’s comprises of 3D surround sound (found in movies) & a wireless Bluetooth music playback strategically placed near your ear to soothe your eardrums and calm your soul.

Screen Shot 2018-09-28 at 11.01.33 pm

To enjoy a hands-free navigation during  your massage, download the OSIM uLove 2 (4手天王) app and connect it to your mobile phone via Bluetooth.

The latest OSIM uLove 2 (4手天王) is available at all OSIM outlets, OSIM roadshows and OSIM’s website.

Thank you OSIM for the wonderful event! It was my first time attending their event and I had a great time!

Getting my spectacles for only $56.40

specs 4

In all honesty, I had zero intention to do up this blogpost BUT ever since I insta-storied me purchasing this pair of glasses for only RM95, I received 60 over DMs asking me what’s the name of the shop etc. I know I’ll constantly have people asking me so I decided to do up this blogpost
so that you guys have something permanent to refer to.

blue light

I just did my relax smile procedure, so some of you would be wondering why am i still making specs? I mean after spending a whooping $6xxx (damn heart pain fml) on my corrective eye procedure, I became super
protective over my eyes.

I wanted to make a pair of zero degree spectacles with blue light lens to protect my eyes from blue light which can be found in all IT devices that we use every single day like laptop, phone etc.

specs 2I came across this shop (YM2) that was beside Yong Ming Optometry which you guys recommended too.

specs 3

Being someone whose addicted to finding cheap deals, I opted for this RM95 range. Yes, RM95 includes your prescriptive spectacle lenses as well.

specs 1Choosing a nice design for my brother. He didn’t go down personally but I brought his old spectacles along and that suffice because they can extract his degree from the old spectacle lenses.

specs 5 By adding blue light lense, I had to pay an additional RM80 which is considered SUPER CHEAP because most of the other optical shops are charging additional RM150 & above. While, Singapore’s optical shops are charging additional SGD$100 or more. So I found a very good deal despite the limited range of designs.

specs 11My brother looking suave (omg i cringe when i type that word cause he’s so fat) in his new glasses.

specs 10

specs 13

After adding blue lenses for both spectacle and getting RM5 off cause I bargained ^.^, I paid RM350 for both specs aka RM170/specs
& that’s only SGD$56.40! 

DAAAAAMMNN BLOOODDDYY CHEAP WTF cause I consulted 4 optical shops with the similar spectacle design + blue lense in Singapore & they all quoted me $180 and above.

specs 14

I got it done in this optical shop, YM2. It’s actually a subsidiary of Yong Ming Optometry & a couple of y’all recommended Yong Ming so i guess they’re really reputable among Singaporeans too.

Waiting time is around 1.5 hours, chop chop chicken chop! Hahaha Just go & grab lunch plus get a body massage & before you know it, you can collect your glasses already.

The other shops that were recommended to me:
(all pictures courtesy of google)

specs 8

Dr Specs: They were charging additional RM 180 for blue light lenses on top of the stated price. However if you don’t wanna add blue light lenses, their spectacles with normal lenses are really affordable ranging from RM50 & above. Most of the nicer frames are only RM 105.


specs 7

Mog Optical: They specialise in branded spectacles which was not what I was looking for.

specs 5

OOPPA : Similar concept to Owndays but they were charging additional RM250 for blue light lenses on top of the stated price, super expensive pls.

I didn’t purchase from any of these shops cause I felt that they were too costly after adding blue light lenses.

Hope this blogpost helped you guys especially those wanna save cost but need to get a pair of new glasses. Please opt for blue light lenses despite how costly it may be because it really really helps to protect your retina. God only gave you one pair of eyes, so please take good care of it.

My motto is: Never try never know
So please ask for discount when you make your glasses
Don’t say sister never give you tips HAHAHAH

A little goes a long way, honey x

Love,
@Emmtann

 

PS: This is in NO WAY a sponsored content cause I paid for all the spectacles & fucking queued 2 hours at custom just to enter JB to make my spectacles. Sister is just doing up this blogpost due to the overwhelming DMs i received & cause I wanna help another fella out to save that $100+.

At the end of the day, the people who judge you aren’t gonna be the ones taking care of you when you grow old and frail. Sometimes, you have to make sacrifices to make way for greater things in life.

T’was an extremely enjoyable sunday brunch.

Soi Thai Soi Nice Food Review

mfp 4
Being a lifestyle blogger, I’m honestly more inclined to fashion and beauty rather than food. However, I decided to make a trip down to Soi Thai Soi Nice after seeing so many of my friends rave about it. 
mfp 1
Gram eats first always
mfp 3

This fried pork belly was SOOOOOO good, we ordered 2 plates of it. Really reminded of the fried chicken outside of Onyx in Bangkok. 


mfp 2

Their signature dish, Tom Yum steamboat. The soup was so rich and flavourful. 

mfp 5

Being someone who visits bangkok every single year, Soi Thai Soi Nice really aced my tastebuds. Let a sister help you out if you’re thinking of visiting during the weekends – try avoiding their Seletar mall outlet because it’s always fully booked. I visited the Alexandra Central outlet and the waiting time wasn’t as long and that’s a bonus cause I hate waiting for food.

10 Instagram Emo Quotes Accounts

I’d like to blame it on my horoscope for sculpting me into someone so emotional, too emotional to be exact. But really, there’s no one who can save me from my own self wallowing despair other than myself/ yourself.

If you follow me on my dayre.me/emmtann, you would know that I always post emo quotes there & surprisngly, a lot of girls actually relate to them. I always get requests to share my secret stash of emo quotes so that they too, can tide through tough times by seeking comfort in these quotes.

That has never crossed my mind but these few weeks, I’ve seen an increased in requests through my DMs. There are a lot more accounts but let’s take it slow – Here’s 10 of my secret stash of emo quotes accounts which I follow on my personal account. Like all millennial, please tell me I’m still one *shows puppy eye*, we all have a main account & personal account. hahahaha

emo 1

@brokensouls.xx

Well, honey. That’s right, it’s been 138 days for me.

I’m not so freaky to count nor do i encourage you to count but since I wanna be more relatable, might as well spend an extra 5 minutes to count how many days has it been for me. hahaha

emo 2

@sadquotepage

I know that you are going through some form of heartbreak, but trust me my little one, you are never alone. Because someone out there is going through the exact same thing or worst.

emo 3

@guywithfeelings

We’re all lost in this world, just different kind of lost.

emo 4

@unsaidphrases

Ask yourself this: If you can’t change a bad habit, what makes it easier for the other party to change for the better?

emo 5@trashedsociety

i trusted you

emo 6@6.17am

How do people do this? Remain friends with their exes & watch them move on?

emo 7@myperfectposts

If it hurts, it means the love was real.

emo 8.1

emo 8.2

emo 8.3

@quotedthought

There are quotes that come in the form of short stories.

emo 10

@nikita_gill 

She’s a really good writer.

emo 9

@poets

One day you’ll be the blessing that someone has been praying for.

Something nice to end off the 10 emo quotes accounts introduction.

Something which I’ve learnt would be, maintaining a good relationship with your other half or anyone is the toughest thing in this world. Because we can never fully empathise how the other party feels especially when their actions directly or indirectly affect you. Every single day, I am learning how to cope this and as cliché as it sounds, it all begins with you.

How badly do you want to change for the better? For yourself, not anybody else.

Coolsculpt with Dr Martin Huang

A month ago, I visited Dr Martin Huang at MH Plastic Surgery to try the Cool Sculpt technology. As you can tell, I’m on a pursuit of trying various fat freezing technology to see which one works the best for me so I have been trying to search for a clinic which can help me achieve my desired results

I have heard so much about coolsculpting so I have decided to give it a try with Dr Martin Huang.

Screen Shot 2018-04-28 at 12.13.21 pm

What is Cool Sculpting?

Cool Sculpt is a non-surgical fat reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that resists all efforts through diet and exercise.

How does it work?

The cool sculpt procedure safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. Treated fat cells are crystallised (frozen), then die. Over time, your body processes the fats and eliminates all these dead skin cells.

Screen Shot 2018-04-28 at 12.10.16 pm

The applicator comes in different sizes for different parts of our body.

Screen Shot 2018-04-28 at 12.10.35 pmThe clinic is located in Paragon which makes their clinic accessible for all their patients – especially so for me because I do not have to travel out of town to meet my clients. I even slotted my coolsculpting in between my appointments.

Screen Shot 2018-04-28 at 12.10.56 pm

 

Screen Shot 2018-04-28 at 12.11.18 pm

They’ll strap the cool sculpt device on the area where you want to freeze your fats. It leaves a tingling suction but its bearable.

Screen Shot 2018-04-28 at 12.11.34 pm

The whole process only took 35 minutes per area. My stomach was split into left section and right section so my whole cool sculpt process took 1.5 hours with massages in between.

Screen Shot 2018-04-28 at 12.11.48 pm

 My stomach felt extremely sore after the treatment & it became quite painful after the device was removed from my body. In comparison to the previous treatment I did, this was more painful. It felt like someone punched my stomach & there was a longer down time of up to 2 weeks. But they say – no pain no gain. So I am feeling pretty hopeful about this.

I’ve already seen an improvement in my belly so far. But I’ll wait for further progress to show you guys the difference in my next blogpost so stay tuned!
