Skinnymint Part 1

So hey, it’s finally my turn to embark on this Skinnymint program.
As i was pregnant last year when everyone was hyping over this teatox thing,
i wasn’t able to join in the “fun” haha
During my pregnancy journey of 38weeks(9mths+),
i gained a total of 15kg(!!!)
From a petite size of XS, i grew to an overall of M size.
(Well, i shall blog another post about my pregnancy again)

So….. from 44kg to 59kg
Then i dropped another 7kg right after i gave birth until my baby’s first month.
So i started this teatox with a weight of 52kg(XS-S)
and very fat thighs 
and flabby stomach(it’s still kind of elastic so for a non-preg person, the results should be better)
It’s been 14days and i’m halfway through this program..
I exercise like 2-3 times a week?
I did a mixture of jogging, squats, planks, crunches
 (all within my limits, not too harsh)
I’m happy to announce that i lost 2kg already!!! 
I am now 50kg(:

For a better review, i will include some visuals.
 28 days Ultimate Teatox program,
consists of 28 morning boost and 14 night cleanse tea bags.

Every morning,
 i drink a cup of Morning Boost tea before eating anything/ accompanied it with my breakfast.
The morning tea is supposed to help you:
1. Increase Energy
2. Burn Fat
3. Reduce Appetite(Curbs funny cravings)

Every alternative night,
i drink a cup of Night Cleanse tea after i am done with all the eating for the day.
There will be some stomachache symptoms.
And the next morning, you will laosai aka “detox”
And your stomach will be less bloated and you actually feel much healthier.
The night cleanse tea is supposed to help you:
1. Reduce Bloating
2. Improve Digestion
3. Lose Weight

You may understand more in detail at: https://www.skinnymint.com

So here, this is DAY 1.
Super fat and not glamorous but hey, i was pregnant,
and it’s only been 3 months(self-comfort)

Somewhere in between i took another….
and yes, in between i forgot which day…
Then, TADA! IT’S BEEN 14DAYS!
Halfway through the program,i’ve made some progress, and i’m so glad it’s rather obvious!
Can see the difference???

Yep i become smaller size as a whole, and fyi all pics were taken in shorts S size,
so… i’m not so huge after all hahahaha
I believe it’s handwork, the exercises and diet paid off.
But without the tea, i don’t think i will be able to psycho myself to diet.

And as said, I am not a very disciplined person.
Thus, i only eat very clean for 1 week.
After 1 week, i’m back to suppers/beers/chocolates but still, not too much of them.
Therefore, if you have very strong willpower, your results will be much better than mine!

If you have really low tolerant, try the 14 days pack first.
Because if you don’t eat clean/ exercise with this program,
i doubt it will be effective/ worth your money spent.
Do avoid processed food/ fast food.

Here are more pictures…

Alright, 14 more days to go!
I’ll update again!
Let’s hope i drop 2 more kg from 50kg to 48.
 Good luck to me!

Emerald Allure Eyelash Extensions

Hi all!
Another eyelash extension lobang for ya all(:
Emerald Allure is a humble home salon currently located at Sengkang.
(They will be shifting to Roxy Square this 30th May)
They do nail services, wedding makeup and rental and beauty services!
Well, saw a great deal and tried their eyelash extensions.

If you are lazy like me, Eyelash extensions had helped:
1. Save ALOT of time on having to draw eyeliners everyday
2. Makes me look more awake at all times(even at home at night)

For those who had not tried, 
no worries as there is no discomfort at all if you opt for the natural style
(LIKE WHAT I OPT FOR)
 With the quality strand by strand lashes, it’s almost like you had nothing.
 Unlike fake lashes
i don’t understand how people can wear them everyday without feeling uncomfortable.

There, NATURAL right?
As i know, the market rate for single strands lash extensions easily range from $100 up.
And it’s usually only 80strands, which means you have to top up money for a fuller look.
Other cheepers ones are actually have 3-5 lashes sticked together per strand,
which means if you dropped one strand, your eyes will look super funny.
For Emerald Allure
they charge $58 for 100-110 strands
Which is really a reasonable price.
Also, do quote JESLYNE to get additional 10% off!
Stay tuned as i will be giving out free vouchers for my readers 
to try their services in these coming few weeks!

Keratin Treatment at NEXT SALON ION

Hi all!
I’ll be blogging more frequent now on beauty deals/tips so keep a lookout(:

Recently, i got called up by Joanna, distributor of Kerarganic Singapore, to help out as a hair model for the product training of NEXT salon on
Organic Keratin Treatment.
Okay, i am no expert in hair treatments,
however, i do know that this treatment is superb in softening and relieving frizz.
Especially if your hair is super damaged and dry and coarsely, you should give this a try,
it’ll definitely revive your hair’s health and save your hair!
(Only after this, then your hair masks/serums will actually be useful)

For more information on Keratin Treatments:
http://hair.allwomenstalk.com/facts-you-should-know-about-keratin-treatments-for-your-hair

Okay enough said…I’ll let the pictures do the talking.

1-2 years back, i did this treatment for the 1st time.
My hair was damaged by constant perming and hair dyes.
However, it was like magic, that my hair is able to “comes back alive”..
it’s LIKE MAGIC PLEASE.

This year, i’m back here again,
and to be honest my hair is already pretty revived so i’m happily taking it as a pampering session(:

A big thank you to Joanna, Delos and Mnson for pampering my hair!(:
 Now my hair is soft and frizz-free yays.

Look at how my hair shines

Therefore, if you have naturally wavy hairs that do not sit,or frizzy hair/damaged hair,
Keratin Treatment is the best solution for you.
Each treatment costs around $400.
You don’t have to do it every time you do chemical treatments to your hair.
Just do it once, to revive it,
and then do it again if you feel that it needs maintenance again.
(Maybe in a year or a afew years’ time or so)

Look at me, one time is enough to revive my hair already…
Therefore, save up and give it a shot.

The Keratin Treatment is not available in every salon.
It is only distributed in a few salons in SG.
Do look up the NEXT salon and book your appointment if interested(:
Trust me, it’s really good.
This is not a paid ad.

Lolita: Novalash Eyelash Extension

Hi, done my eyelash extension for the first time yesterday!
Previously had only tried eyelash perming, but because rom date’s nearing, 
naturally become more 爱美 (:
And usually eyelash extension costs $80 and above for a set (for the good ones of course) 
If you choose to do those around $50 ones, advise to you is, might as well don’t do.

Why so?
Because those extensions comes in strands of 5, 
if one were to drop, it would be quite obvious and ugly.
Therefore, always do those in strands of maximum 3.
Anyway, Novalash is famous and good for eyelash extension.
They comes in single strands, and therefore would not very natural(:
Did my first time at
LOLITA, THE BEAUTY STUDIO
Marina Link @ Marina Square 
#B1-12 Singapore 
You may visit their website for more information and pictures on NovaLash:
Usual price:
New Set $139/2hours / Touch-up 
 Refill $99/60mins or $129/90mins

Had mine done at $49 for 100 lashes, cause got Groupon deal.

 Have tried my best to take the best views for the lashes.
Anyway.. As i’m a first timer, Shelly, the person responsible for my lashes suggested
using 10mm lashes at the sides and 11mm in the centre for a natural look.
So girls who want a more dramatic or very obvious extensions, 
free feel to use 11mm/12mm/13mm lashes.
Also, i was recommended to but the 150 package so i have 70-80 lashes for each eye.
(Now i only have 50 per eye)
Then i can achieve a fuller/ more glamorous look(:

Alright, finally, these will last me 2-3weeks if i take care of it properly.
A fuller set will last 3-4 weeks.
Hope it last till ROM!(:

Wouldn’t mind going back again as Shelly’s done a real good job(:

Salon De Choix: Hair Perm

Have ya ever permed your hair and then finds it too auntie/too curly
 that you just keep combing/washing right after you had them permed?
PLEASE DO NOT COMB YOUR PERMED HAIR!
Some “new” to perm has this misconception that combing actually helps,
but seriously.. no, it will simply result in an uglier perm/frizzy hair.
Therefore, a few months back, 
i FINALLY found a salon that knows the kind of perm that i want.
I’ve tried several salons all located in Far East Plaza, 
but it seemed that not all stylists understand the current trend.
I also want to not pay too much for a perm? 
Therefore Salon Vim/ Essensuals Hairdressing are automatically crossed out.
I spent roughly $200 on this perm, 
which would have cost me around $280+ for my hair length at these two other salons.
SALON DE CHOIX
is located at
  • 3 Killiney Road #01-06 Winsland House 1
  • Singapore s239519
  • (Opposite Orchard Central/ KPO House)
  • Mon-Sun: 10:30-8:30PM

They have occasional discounts and offer so do go over to 
Their FB page:
To check out other hair done by their stylists as well.
My hair is done by Chester Soh.
Was recommended by Nicole through her blog and he’s responsible for her hair as well.
Told Chester that i would like perms like yankaykay and tricia ong,
so i showed him a few pictures of them.
Seems like he got it pretty quickly
since he must have done many blogger’s hair, 
and honestly, they’re all quite similar isn’t it?
Therefore, saved me a lot of effort in communicating what i want(:
TA DAAAA!

Final product’s pretty isn’t it(:
Just a few selfies to display my satisfaction for the hair perm AHAH.
I want it not too curl, looks natural, but lasting as well.
This is supposed to last for 3 months with minimal care effort(:
Ya all can scan through to look at THE PERM properly(not my face hahah)
It’s REALLY NICE (THUMBS UP)

 

Alright, if anyone’s looking for a salon, free feel to try Salon De Choix!
And remember to look for Chester Soh.
For my friends who are interested, i could also get ya all additional 15% off.
Just drop me a text and i’ll arrange for ya(:

Hong Kong Guide Pt 2: What to Eat!

What’s Hong Kong without these fantastic food?
Hong Kong is really famous for it’s food and shopping!
So i’m sure my guide is very important to you as we spent almost the whole trip eating!

So now, take this down.
PLACES TO EAT!

1) TIM HO WAN 添好运
Dim sum is a must!
It’s not because it taste oh-so-heavenly..
The reason to try Tim Ho Wan at HK is because we Singaporeans, 
have been queuing up all day for this restaurant in our country.

Naturally, it makes sense to try the authentic version at HK right?
What’s more, it has been award the Michelin award.
It’s also cheaper than the outlet in SG.
But don’t worry, after you’ve tried this, 
I’ll recommend other much tastier HK dim sum/ food(:

Food that you must order:
Char Siew Bao
Chee Cheong Fun
Malay Steamed Cake (Ma Lai Gao)

2) MAK’S NOODLES  麥奀雲吞麵世家
Another not the most-fantastic noodles, 
but the one brand that has gotten to our Must-try list for tourists in HK!
Don’t get me wrong once again..
the noodles taste great!!! It’s delicious!
But for this restaurant, the downsides are that the portions are too small and 
probably too over-rated cause it’s expensive compared to a local stall.

But try it anyway! it’s really good(:
I’ll recommend another noodle place which is so good that
you will have to go back twice during your trip at least!! 
(RESTAURANT NO.4 BELOW)
But guys, try this first, then you’ll get what i mean.

Food that you must order:
Shrimp Wanton noodles
Beef noodles

3) AUSTRALIA DAIRY CO. 澳洲牛奶公司
Definitely another MUST-GO!
But i don’t think this place is over-rated at all..
it’s really up to it’s name!
Blend in to the local flavours with reasonable local prices.

You may come here for breakfast/ desserts!
Don’t be shocked to a super long queue, but it moves really fast so just queue anyway ok people, don’t give this up on this is awesome shit!

Food that you must order:
Scrambled egg on a buttered toast
Milk Tea
Macaroni
Dun Nai Original Milk Flavoured
(MY FAVOURITE CAN-EAT-ALL-DAY-EVERYDAY, 
and i personally likes the dun Nai from PLACE NO.5 more actually)

Had fun taking photos while queueing too!
The stairs are so damn photogenic.

4) SUPREME BEEF BRISKET SOUP 
澳門九記清湯腩王 
46 Portland Street , Yau Ma Tei 
油麻地砵蘭街46號

 MUST TRY MUST EAT MUST COME BACK!
haha pardon me if i exaggerated but it’s really so good and so so affordable!
Words just can’t describe anymore ahahaha
It has famous actress/actors pictures all over the restaurant 
which is similar to our Founder’s Ba Ku Teh.
Somehow their local delight i guess!
The beef literally melt in my mouth ahahaha

Food that you must order:
Shrimp Wanton noodles
Beef noodles
Beef brisket (single dish)- 80 HKD

5) YEE SHUN MILK COMPANY
 義順牛奶公司 
Well, if you have read my comment in place no.3, yep i like the desserts here better!
There are also stuffs like red bean desserts and you can always stop by here 
for snacks like sausages with sunny-side up.

Food that you must order:
Dun Nai Original Milk Flavoured
(IS REALLY GOOD HERE! especially if you like it more milky!
It is really smooth and sweet.)

6) Lian Xiang Lou (莲香楼)
Another MUST-EAT!!!!
The food here are so damn good!!!
Regardless whether it’s dim sum/ dinner.
However, the dim sum here is a must try.
And it leads you back to the old hongkee days where you have to “fight” for the dim sum.
Old ladies would push out trolleys and trolleys of dim sum so you just go to them and get yours!
An advice would be to go earlier in the morning to get your dim sum as 
when it gets later, the variety runs out!

Get their traditional tea instead of the one in a pot if you would like to experience better!
(Will upload dimsum pics soon)

OKAY, those guides above are all about the restaurants..
Now, i’ll introduce some awesome snacks/ cafe bites!

7)  COLD NOODLES 百塔冷
Located in the heart of Mongkok, at the entrance of one the shopping mall.
It is almost like yong tau fu, where you get to choose the type of ingredients you want in your noodles.
The noodles is bitesize, maybe 5 mouth worth of noodles?
It has this sweet and spicy sauce that makes it taste so good
I personally love the octopus cause it’s so fresh!
Must grab this cold bite okay!



8) CAFE-HOPPING!
Yes, imma hipster hahaha #shameless
but i do realised that nowadays, Singaporeans love cafe-hopping more than anything!

In a hidden street of HK Da hung area,
lies many cafes/restaurants which allow you to cafe-hop like crazy!
It reminds us of our very SG Tiong Bahru Area.
Quite pretty for ya to take lots of hipsters photos,
and have local food/jap food/ ice creams!



Plus-point:
HELLO KITTY CAFE
is located inside this area as well.

Just in case any ladies would like to dine in,
the cafe is super small and the queue is super long, 
Do go early to queue if you really wanna dine in..
Take Note:
And they don’t allow takeaway as well, 
Takeaways are only available in their counter cafe i
Causeway bay SOGO mall basement food place.


9) BISTRO & PUBS 
AND SOME CAFES- SOHO AREA
It reminds us of our very SG Holland Village/ Clarke Quay.

You can always pop by here at night to have a good bistro dinner and some beer!
Besides, LAN KWAI FONG is just round the corner,
so feel free to eat nearby before going clubbing!

Some other visuals..

Clubbed at MAGNUM…
And it’s too damn packed on a saturday night.
Too squeezy ahahha

Their beautiful toilet hhahaha..

Must buy cosmetics/beauty products..
3CE STYLE NANDA!

And a MACAU DAY TRIP perhaps?

Ruins of St Pauls

Alright, that’s all of my visuals available for now!
Hope you’ve taken down some pointers for first timers,
Enjoy HongKong well(:

Hong Kong Guide Pt 1: Where to stay!

Hong Kong has been hou good ah!
(I’m so stuck with the canto-ish chinese accent)

HK is a city of food, shopping and late night fun!
So all we do all day is eat and buy and party {on repeat} ahaha
So…. if ya haven’t been to HK, 
there are a few pointers here that i might be able to help/guide you along to enjoy your holidays better(:

Firstly, 
PLACE TO STAY

My advise would be to either:
1. Stay near Mongkok (旺角) MTR station
It is a place that you must go to anyway, 
all the shopping places are around this area.

2. Just stay near any MTR station that is within walking distance of 2-5 minutes from your hotel
Preferably along Mongkok till Causeway Bay (Red to Blue line)
Because you would probably be travelling along these few stations throughout the trip!
(EVERYTHING IS THERE)
I like booking all my hotels through www.agoda.com
It is easy, convenient and you earn points 
which could be exchange for $$ to be waived off for your next trips(:

For my first time in HK, i stayed at 
ROYAL PLAZA HOTEL (帝京酒店) -5 stars
93 Prince Edward Road West, Kowloon, Mongkok, Hong Kong

It is located beside a shopping mall, above Mongkok East MTR.
Able to walk to Mongkok shopping area within 15minutes.

Cost approximately $250 SGD per night during non-peak hours/agoda promo 
I got a plaza deluxe room the other time!
This hotel is crazily comfortable! And of course kind of expensive..
Don’t book this if you have a budget for the trip.

The bathtub is so comfortable and they provide Crabtree and Evelyn toiletries.
smells damn damn good!


For the 2nd time back in HK, my friends have some budget.
So we stayed at 
WING SING HOTEL (永星酒店) – 2 Stars
1B Wing Sing Lane, Yaumatei, Kowloon, Hong Kong
3 Star Hotel

It is located at Yau Ma Tei MTR, 3 minutes walk from Exit C
(1 station from Mongkok)

Cost approximately $60+ SGD per night during non-peak hours/agoda promo 
We got a Triple room.

It has one queen bed and 1 single bed.


As we were really on budget.. this hotel is decent enough.
I would say, a place to crash and then go out quickly the next day. 
Although it is small, but really really good enough for us!

Unlike other budget hotels, you get some walking space for this..
And the toilet is actually not small and cramped, quite spacious!
It’s really recommended for people who find no point in spending too much on hotel rooms!
If you’re feeling rich, feel free to checkout hotels near MTR Central (中环)
It’s an pretty awesome place to stay at as well!
JUST A REMINDER:
ALWAYS ALWAYS TAKE THE MTR!
Unless it’s too late for MTR as the taxi in HongKong is more expensive than in SG!
The meters jump every 200m!

MTR is so so so much faster and cheaper(:
Get an octopus card instead of day passes!
At the end of the day you can refund the remaining money in the card 
with a deduction of 9HKD for processing fee

Hope my guide helps!
Will continue on which places to shop and eat on part 2(:

Black Paint Organic Skincare Set: Healthy Cleansing

Hi all,
I’ve worked as a Black Paint skincare promoter for 14days in April.
Am glad to be trained on the benefits of using this Black Paint skincare products!

Black Paint is originated from Kyoto Japan! 
And its products are 100% organic.
So i’m absolutely grateful to be given one full set of Black Paint skincare
by the founder, Miyuki, as a reward for hardwork.
Therefore i am here, doing a review for them(:

During that period, there are ongoing promotions so the promotion price for a box is $129!

One full set consists of:
A black paint charcoal soap (Main Product)

A konjac scrub sponge
Vegetable oil
Best Water (Toner)
Rose water (Pore tightening)
Water cream (Moisturiser)

What are some of the benefits?
As i’ve been fully trained by 3 japanese consultants and the manager herself,
all the information that i’m gonna give you now would be really accurate(:

Black Paint is famous for their Pore Cleansing.

So the main benefits of using their products:
-Cleanse your pores 
-Close your pores
-Tighten your pores
And to pamper your pores with the right skincare guide! 

Girls, if you do go for facial to cleanse your face once in a while,
Black Paint actually works the same way, just naturally!

This is what the BLACK PAINT CHARCOAL SOAP looks like.
I’ll be your instruction manual in this case!

Step 1:
 BP Charcoal Soap (Main Product) 
$49.90
is made up of charcoal with 23 different essential oils.

This bar soap can last you up to 1 month if you use it twice daily
(Day and Night)

It works as a:
-Facial Cleanser
-Make-up remover
(Able to remove heavy waterproof eye make ups)

Don’t worry! It smells good with all the essential oils…
And it is not going to dry your face at all.

Black Paint works for all skin types.
For oily/normal/sensitive skins

How to start using it?
Firstly, place the soap into a cup of warm water and let it soak for 20 seconds!
After 20 seconds, apply it to your face with all the 6 surfaces of the BP soap.

It is recommended to apply cover all 6 surfaces of the soap.
However if lazy, just apply it all over your face.

When you apply to your face, black colour is good
Grey colour indicates that the BP is not soak long enough in the warm water.
After applying, place the charcoal soap on bowl or plate and let it dry naturally.
(Repeat when you use it during the day and night)

Massage your face for 20 seconds to let the Black Paint enter your pores!
I would advise you to apply at the eyes area during the last 10 seconds!

Why Black Paint instead of a normal facial cleanser?
Firstly, unlike normal cleanser, Black Paint does not leave your skin too dry.
It will leave your skin just nice without being too oily or dry.

When the Black Paint enter your pores, it actually brings all the dirt and impurities away 
when you cleanse your face with warm water after..

Although it is a bar soap, which makes it incredibly troublesome,
the process and result will convince you otherwise!

Since it is packaged at a one month serving size,
this suggests that to cleanse your face and pores completely..
(A human face has 200 over pores)
You are to dedicate to this facial wash and not mix it with other products in the meanwhile!
Since it is 100% organic, organic works best with organic products.

Also, during the meantime when you use Black Paint.
It warns us that there might be a mini breakout or dryness at some parts of your face.
This is completely NORMAL!
Because BP are trying to push all the dirt out of your face!
Therefore, a breakout simply suggests that part of your face as dirty.
For me, my mini breakout happened just after 5 days 
but only a few at the forehead and lower chin area!

Just apply more toner, and it will go away after 2 days or so!
However, after the whole “treatment” process i would say…
YOU WILL HAVE BEAUTIFUL SKIN(:

Step 2: 
Scrub your face once a day at least with the
 Konjac Scrub Sponge
($19.90)

It is made of 100% vegetable fibres.
Use it to remove all the unwanted blackheads 
and impurities that are pushed out by the Black Paint soap!

Soak the Black Sponge in warm water for the first time to soften it!
Usage: 1 month 
(Throw away when soft and broken)

Ladies, our nose areas and the area below our lower lip are usually rough and edgy.
This is because of blackheads and impurities!

Directions of use:
Simply pressed on both cheeks area and gently move left and right.
Press and move and repeat all around the face,
For nose areas, light scrubs are recommended.
Next, if you do purchase these other products..
(As i mentioned organic works best together)

Best Water (Toner)
The BP Toner is 100% alcohol free so no chemicals will be apply to your face!
It might be hard to penetrate into your skin as there are no alcohol.
Pump 5 times onto your hand and then apply and push the toner into your face.

Rose water (Pore tightening)
Rose are queen of pores tightening!
We love this!
As a bottle of Rose Water is made of 2000 FRESH ROSE pumped into it!
Purpose is to tighten the pores after hydrating it with toner!

It is important as pores that are tight makes a face lift!
If your pores are big and open,
it may cause your face to sag and dry!

Water cream (Moisturiser)

Lastly, their moisturiser works as a protective layer to dirt in the air!
Simply apply onto your face..
As you massage in the Water Cream, water droplets are formed around that area.
Simply SPREAD and let the moisturiser DRY ON IT’S OWN!
It may take 2-3minutes but let it dry on it’s own.
After dried, it feels like a make up base(:
(May protect you from the chemicals in your make up as well)
For me, i know all the purpose of using these products..
So i does all 5 steps even before i leave the house in the morning!

So does it really work?
I can only conclude that it leaves my skin soft and much fairer after using it for a month!
It is reasonably smooth and the dry and bumpy areas are really gone!
I generally also feel healthier for my skin as all ingredients are organic.
I would surely purchase the Black Paint again to cleanse my pores regularly!

Worth a try ladies!
I’ve repurchased my second bar of Black Paint soap.
It really cleanses my skin like no other facial cleanser!

Black Paint can now be purchased at 
Jurong Westgate Isetan B2 (Japanese products section)
They are still trying to get a retail store in Taka Orchard!
