Attended OSIM’s latest uStiletto Launch Event recently, and I can’t keep my excitement to introduce this amazing leg massager to all ladies who love your heels.
As a model and a pageant girl, I wear heels so often! Despite having blisters and a foot fracture before, it doesn’t deter me from heels. I like how heels (1) boost my height, (2) enhance my confidence, (3) accentuate my posture and (4) allow me to flaunt my legs. On days that I have to take public transport to and fro work, I always go home with aching calves and sore feet. As a result I rely on monthly massages at massage parlours/spas to help alleviate those pain and strains.
It was love at first sight when I meet the uStiletto – OSIM’s latest leg massager, targeted to provide a thorough and pampering leg massage for all OLs and ladies. This means I can now enjoy DAILY massages instead of monthly; that’s super good news! With three designs, the uStiletto is designed for every personality.

After the first trial session, all the girls were raving about how good the experience was. I swear that I felt that my legs are lighter and my heels were looser than before. This immediate effect AMAZES me as I never thought it could provide instant relief to my tired legs. The OSIM uStiletto fits perfectly for all feet sizes (my dad tried uStiletto at home too and he loved how the uStiletto snugs his legs from his toes to the calf!) and there are many program settings to suit individual preferences (1) Pamper (2) Relief (3) Beauty (4) Reflexology and (5) Sleep.
My personal favourite massage program is the Pamper program. It uses ‘S-Tone Airbags’ and ‘S-Care Rollers’ to provide a very gentle and comfortable session to soothe discomfort for THE WHOLE FEET AND CALVES arising from wearing heels. I particularly enjoy the part when the rollers go from the top to back of my feet; the whole process wasn’t itchy as most people would imagine it to be, instead the strength was just right. Part of the program also has the airbag inflated to squeeze my calves, and I find that it is particularly effective in relieving tension accumulated on my legs.
For those individuals who usually go for reflexology, rejoice as the reflexology massage program stimulates vital reflex points on your feet to improve circulation and metabolism of your legs. This program is great for individuals who go for regular massages and for those who stands for long hours on a daily basis. Its intensity is surely helpful to relax your leg and body to give you a good rest every night. Here’s a photo of all of us enjoying our massage and there were numerous time I thought I was so close to falling asleep as the experience was just too shioook.
In general, here are three key reasons why I think uStiletto is a great gift for yourself or for any ladies in your life:
Save time and money on monthly massages at the massage parlours/spas when you have uStiletto. Massage those legs of yours anytime whenever you feel like at the comfort of your home.
Honestly, regardless of gender, our daily walking causes strain on our feet. Nothing beats going home for a pampering session; your legs will definitely thank you for it! It has a “warm air” function that helps to enhance circulation for your feet and body. Besides, well-rested feet help you go a longer distance!
(3) Affordability & Convenient
Light and portable, the uStiletto is convenient to move around and its design fits the modern home.
Thank you OSIM for the kind invitation to your launch, I also had so much fun with Fashion Artist Chan Clayrene during the WaterColour Workshop. Each of us learnt the basic techniques of water coloring using Faber Caster art materials. Follow her beautiful works on Instagram at @artclaytion.
Definitely not the most artsy person around, but I’ve tried my best, here’s my creation after the session.

All thanks to Singapore Women Association, I had the privilege to be invited to participate in Women Sports Festival 2017! Organized by Macau Sports Council and the Women General Association of Macau, I had the opportunity to gather with many wonderful women all around South East Asia region for a healthy cause.
The Singapore team had great fun performing at Senado Square and attending the Macau Sports Festival Health Seminar which focused on an interesting discussion on the topic of Aerobic Exercises.
And of course I took time to visit several good places which I would love to recommend! Here’s 5 recommended things to do in Macau.
NUMBER ONE. Portuguese Egg Tart
I am the biggest egg tart fan so Portuguese egg tarts are a must have for me! A sinful treat, you’ll not be disappointed with Lord Stow Bakery’s version of the edible icon for Macau. The most convenient for you to get your egg tart fix is at The Venetian Hotel, where you get to make your rounds for your shopping too. Their Ice Milk Tea is also one of the best that I had in Macau; you will regret not trying it! Lord Stow has a couple of outlets in the city, click here for the list of their outlets. P.S. I thought the egg tart at Koi Kei Bakery was very ordinary though.
NUMBER TWO. Casino Hop
I visit Macau regularly but I haven’t gotten bored of it because the new hotels spring out so fast! This year I visited The Parisian and Wynn Palace both of which are really beautiful especially the latter.

For an exceptional dinner experience, I had dinner at Wing Lei Palace at Wynn Palace. Serving Cantonese fine-dining, I enjoyed their roast meat selection the best! Every details count at this restaurant, I loved that their flower pieces on each table are all fresh blooms and every item in the restaurant are coordinated to match their theme colors. You also get to see the Performance Lake water show every 20 minutes, dining there is definitely a feast for all your senses. Not forgetting that service was exceptional as well (FYI, I am not paid to say this haha). Super romantic if you want to impress your date! 😉
The Venetian and The Galaxy have elaborate decorations, if you haven’t been to Macau; they are worth a visit too!
NUMBER THREE. Drinks & Party
I visited SKY 21 for a rooftop bar experience and Club Cubic @ Hard Rock Hotel this trip.
SKY 21 bar is a cosy place which suits couples and love birds. With a lot of sofa seats, it is not too noisy and really comfortable to chill at. There weren’t anything spectacular as you can’t see most of the view unless you step out to the alfresco area where most patrons use it as the smoking area. Service was slightly below expectations but the cocktails like Victoria Secret and Angel were quite pleasant.
To party your night away, I recommend Club Cubic; Macau’s biggest club in both hype and space. The party starts after 12am; enjoy Ladies Night on Friday nights and DJ acts on most Saturdays. Entry fee was 250 Macau dollars inclusive of a drink. My greatest catch that night was seeing TVB actor Lawrence Ng!!
NUMBER FOUR. Seafood!
Don’t miss feasting on seafood treats when in Macau. My must-haves are steamboat, huge oysters, Angus Beef and Canadian Geoduck!
NUMBER FIVE – The House of Dancing Water

The House of Dancing Water is the world’s largest water-based show that is so breathtaking and spectacular! The story depicts a love story of a survivor of a shipwreck falling in love with a beautiful princess; but like any fairy tale story, the happily ever after ending never comes easily. The duo was cruelly separated and their love were tested by the Princess’s evil stepmother, the Dark Queen. Filled with heart-stopping stunts, I think this is really one of the best performances I’ve watched in recent years!
Last tip to share, purchase SIM card with data plan from the vending machine in the airport instead of from touting individuals in those car rental booths. For some petty cost savings, the SIM card that I got from the airport counters doesn’t work well. It taps on 3G network, can be used to send messages but connection to Instagram and Facebook is pathetically limited 🙁 My other girl friends whom had bought the cards from the vending machine has high speed 4G instead!
If you are in Macau to try your luck, here’s wishing you the best too!
(SP) Real beauty comes from within. Besides having good thoughts and kindness that will shine out of you, I think true beauty is reflected through healthy and glowing skin. If you are keen to enhance your external appearance and get better skin, QYRA intense care collagen drink has been proven to be more effective than normal topical cosmetics.
Here’s sharing 6 Big Reasons why you should try QYRA:
(1) Clinically Tested
Photo Credit: HerWorld
Made in Germany and safe for consumption; QYRA Collagen Drink has been clinically tested on more than 100 women, and they have shown visible effects and improvements for their skin after a short period of taking the drink. The clinical test result revealed that the consumption helps delay skin aging process, and participant’s skin also became visibly firmer and smoother.
(2) Reduces cellulites in 4-6 months
As we age, our body’s collagen production naturally begins to slow down; and the magical ingredient in QYRA is called Verisol (a scientifically proven Bioactive Collagen Peptide) that can enter the deep dermal layers of the skin to help improve our skin from within. Collagen gives our skin strength and elasticity, and the good news is you can intake good collagen orally to help your skin cell repair and renew normally. However, please also remember to cut down on unhealthy lifestyle habits like eating a diet high in sugar, smoking or even being under the sun for prolonged period of time which depletes your natural collagen level!
(3) Reduces wrinkles in 1-2 months
A very small bottle (2.5g), the QYRA collagen drink if taken over a period of one month, can produce measurable effect on supporting skin metabolism, reducing wrinkles and improving skin elasticity.
(4) Intense moisture
A significant percentage of the human body is water, and when your skin is sufficiently moisturized, it feels soft and young-looking. Restoring and retaining moisture are my top priorities in my skincare routine, and I couldn’t be happier finding a way to top up the moisture level for my skin in such an effective manner! 🙂
Small and portable, the packaging of QYRA Collagen Drink is so easy to be brought around in my daily routine! I usually carry at least 2 small bottles with me (so that I don’t miss drinking it when I am on the go) whenever I am out and I don’t even feel the extra weight in my bag.
(6) Simplify your skincare routine
In general, QYRA Collagen Drink is such a wonderful skin enhancer product. Easy to drink, it has a light tangy flavour which is very appealing in taste. Most people think that it is difficult (or even impossible) to enhance attractiveness without going under the knife, but you can actually get younger skin by taking in the right supplements. For people who hate taking tablets or pills (ME!), rejoice as QYRA is so pleasing in terms of taste and it cares for your skin in a way that application of topical creams can’t.
In case you are wondering, there are a total of 21 small bottles for drinking in each package of QYRA Collagen Drink. At a promotional price of $76.50 (original price $85), you can get yours to try from www.360activ.com. Eager to try? You can drop an email to email@example.com to get your complimentary sample today!
(SP) Tucked in the eastern part of Singapore, I visited one of Ouni Beauty’s many Training Centres. Entering the location, there is a very simple, cosy yet spacious enough classroom for the course.
Being in the beauty industry, I am always eager to learn new technology, gain new knowledge and meet like-minded individuals, so I was very excited to be attend one of the class! I dropped by on a regular weekday to attend the last day of the class where Teacher Youmi taught the Korean Skincare course. Graduated from Ewha Womans University, Teacher Yumi is the co-founder of Ouni Korea whom has also chalked up many years of experience as a Beauty Trainer and consultant internationally. She has a gentle demeanour and seemed very easy to talk to; I was told that Teacher Youmi could converse fluently in Korean, Mandarin and English.
The knowledge taught is great if you are starting out in the beauty industry and has zero experience in the industry. Teacher Youmi was always patient with the hundred questions thrown by students and is very hands-on with the actual demonstration of the various Korean Skincare Treatments. For those who wish to learn about the Korean beauty industry trends, the course will cover the below treatments:
(1) Korean Water Shine BB Covered Treatment
If your dream is to obtain the flawless and dewy skin that Koreans have, you no longer have to travel to Korea to find out all about the Korean skincare secrets that helps you be naturally beautiful. With Ouni expanding to South East Asia, you can get to attend classes in Singapore, Taiwan, China and Korea.
(2) Korean 24K Gold Mask Treatment
This treatment is for lifting and firming purpose to help reduce the appearance of lines whilst brightening the skin.
(3) Korean MTS Facial Lift
An 8 hours class, the class starts from morning 9am till 6pm.The class that I attended had about 10-12 students, most of them young, in their twenties. For a leisurely class to enrich your beauty knowledge or learn something new; don’t miss exploring opportunities with Ouni Beauty. I heard that their company has since expanded to have more than 50 outlets and 9 academies in the Asia region, and there are more than three thousand of students whom had attended their courses.

Besides the Skincare course, Ouni also specialize in Korean Semi-Permanent Embroidery and Korean Eyelash Extension courses if you are interested.

It is less than 1 week to Valentine’s Day and if you are still not prepared, you are in deep trouble haha. Read the post here for my quick guide on finding the perfect gift for HER.
This Valentine, whether you are spending it with someone special, I urge you to show more love to yourself. Your self worth or confidence does not come from anyone but from yourself. Have a splendid day filled with love and remember to make time to do things you enjoy too.
For every grooming talk I give, I can’t emphasize enough that make-up is to enhance your features and to hide your flaws, don’t over-do it. Almost no one recognize that this is me =.= Remember to embrace your beauty girls! You are more beautiful than you think you are.
I had taken a break from blogging as I was busy for the competition of Miss Singapore International (MSI) 2016 which happened just awhile ago. Prior to the competition, I was so busy juggling work and the trainings; I had so many breakouts multiple times a week (the thick makeup I have to wear made my skin so much worse too :(). On a usual basis, I battle with small pimples on my forehead, but this year, (to my horror!), I’ve started having a few big pimples on my cheek and chin area together with some stubborn red marks from old breakouts.
For awhile, I relied on over-the-counter products but quickly I realized they don’t treat the root problem of acne, and they take very long to decrease inflammation. Dryness of the skin usually comes with it too.
That is when I decided I needed to sought professional help and here I am back with trusty Dr Terence Tan from Halley Medical Aesthetics.
Why I like visiting Halley Medical Aesthetics:
For customized solutions that address my specific skin concern. This visit, Dr Tan professionally designed a “off the menu” laser treatment specially for me.
There are no downtime solutions for me! I can get treated and go up and about for my daily schedule right after the treatment.
After a comprehensive consultation, Dr Terence Tan customised a no downtime laser treatment combining two different lasers to address my acne concerns and improve my skin texture. The first was a long pulsed laser treatment to treat acne by clearing and rejuvenating pores. The second was a Q-switched laser to minimise pigmentation. The treatments came in timely as I was just one week to the finals of MSI competition and I want nothing but perfect skin for the big day.
For any treatments to be effective, the first step has got to be thorough cleansing. Halley Medical Aesthetic has an experienced and professional team that always make me feel at ease when they work their magic. I was comfortably lying down on their reclining treatment chair, while Dr Tan’s assistant helped with the removal of my existing makeup. The facial cleanser they use removes impurities on the surface skin and helps prepare my skin for the treatment thereafter.
The red spots on my face are actually acne marks that have been there for a long time. As a perfectionist and someone who is in the beauty industry, I am emotionally disturbed every night by the presence of such unsightly scars. I am sure many of you will know what I mean because these tiny scars take what seems like FOREVER to lighten or even disappear.
The first part of the laser treatment is the long pulsed laser prescribed for me by Dr Tan because it can accurately focus on small spots with very high energy. The aim is to target the specific problematic spot without harming the surrounding tissue. The whole process was almost painless (discomfort level is 1 out of 10 with 10 as most uncomfortable), and the whole procedure was so relaxing, I hardly felt any discomfort or pain. Along with the laser therapy, Dr Tan used another hand piece that provided a constant stream of cooling air to cool and provide comfort on my face. So imagine an intense cool stream of air like air con being blown on your face during the entire therapy, the feeling was so SHIOK (sorry for the lack of a better word!)!
Dr Tan’s professionalism always wow me every visit as the process is usually very quick, fuss-free and delivers results. He chats with me during the process to make me feel very relax.
The second treatment is the Q-switched laser, it is made of extremely short pulse duration and it targets very small pigment cells and particles. Comparing the two lasers, this second one has an tapping effect that could be felt. You could feel short pulses of energy being directed on to your face. Discomfort is only a low 3 out of 10, where 10 is the most uncomfortable. The process was quick; it took only around 5-10 minutes to cover the whole surface area of the face. The two laser treatments combined makes it perfect for a lunch time rejuvenation or an express acne recovery treatment when you need it.
What I love about this treatment? There is no redness, bruising, blistering and pain AT ALL. Throughout the process, I could almost fall asleep. Also, I am so impressed that Dr Tan is so meticulous! He wouldn’t miss any spots; I have some acne scars below the area where the goggle was covering and Dr Tan would lift the goggle up to make sure he covered every single spot.
For the two laser treatments, there are no needles or anaesthesia involved. It took only 20-30 minutes for the whole face. Anyone of any age who suffers from acne, acne scars or enlarged pores are recommended for this procedure. The laser treatment stimulates deep collagen production to improve the scars from within. As mentioned by Dr Tan, laser treatments improve the skin, but it will take a few sessions, hence, expectations need to be managed when undertaking this treatment to clear or remove your acne concerns.
In summary, this procedure is safe, has no side effects and no downtime. After only one treatment, I could visibly feel that my skin is brighter and smoother. The cost for each individual treatment is at $370 each. For optimal results, minimise exposure to the sun right after treatment and repeated visits are recommended!
Here’s a photo of me taken right after the treatment, and you can see that my face is practically glowing even without makeup. I was ready to go for my next appointments for the day too!
On a side note, here’s presenting to you the First Runner-Up and subsidiary award title Miss Elegance from Miss Singapore International 2016. A big thank you to Halley Medical Aesthetic for taking care of my skin needs for me to look perfectly flawless before the audition (when I did my fillers) and attentively taking care of my acne scar marks just 16 days before my finals.
I always feel the best doctors are those who care about your concerns and find the most suitable solution for you. Thank you Dr Tan for making me feel at home whenever I am at Halley Medical Aesthetics! For my readers, if you had been plagued with any skin issues, be empowered to improve things and learn ways to achieve the perfect skin you have always desire too!
