Is Si Dian Jin (四点金) still important during 过大礼?

Nowadays, a lot of youngsters would conveniently make do without all the traditions. The bottom line is as long as you are happy, that is all that matters right?

However, as the elder daughter of a traditional family, some traditions are still very important to me. For example, I feel that Si Dian Jin (四点金) is a must for my wedding as I value the meaning behind this set of jewellery. Generally, it means acceptance into the groom’s family in short.

“Translated to mean “four touches of gold”, Si Dian Jin represents the four corners of a roof — the groom’s family’s assurance to the bride that she will always have a roof over her head, and will be taken care of throughout her marriage. This betrothal gift from the groom’s mother to the bride usually consists of a necklace, a ring, a bangle and a pair of earrings.” – you can read more here: http://www.goldheart.com/weddingblog/breaking-down-traditions.html

Although a typical set of Si Dian Jin (四点金) consists of a Necklace, a Ring, a pair of Earrings and a Bangle but it is really up to one’s preference. Some may prefer to pick an additional pair of earrings instead of a bangle. For me, I still went ahead with the 4 typical pieces.

However, I do not want the usual 四点金 with the piglets on the necklace because I want it to still fit my daily life after the wedding instead of tucking them into a safety box. Almost all my friends kept their 四点金 away because they find the designs undesirable.

I specifically told my parents-in-law and my parents that I prefer Goldheart MODE Gold 916 Si Dian Jin designs.

Yeah, I received 2 sets of them because my parents got me a set of 四点金 for my bridal gift too.

To be honest, I was also quite afraid that my Mother-in-law would buy me jewellery with piglets so I chose the designs myself. James helped me with the decision of course.

Choosing from the Goldheart Jewelry Mode Gold 916 Si Dian was enjoyable for me as the designs are beautifully crafted to complement bridal gowns, while also versatile enough for to be worn “à la carte” for daily styling. I found out Goldheart actually use European state-of-the-art technology to create their Si Dian Jin, such that the designs are stylish and modern, and yet able to retain the values and symbolism of Si Dian Jin gift.


DSC09584


Instead of just simply choosing one set, I customized my own set from the plethora of exquisite designs from different MODE Gold 916 Si Dian Jin collections. One that fits my character and individuality.

I love the geometric sets because of how the shapes played out. The set in the picture below was the first one that caught my attention.

DSC09593


James, on the other hand, preferred the leaves set. My other half always love designs that are slightly more complicated yet classy while I always opt for the simpler designs.


DSC09591


As for the bangle, my wrist is quite small so I went for a bracelet instead. Isn’t the one below simple yet pretty? I love how the spiral designs are played so…


DSC09598


sooooo.. I went for this set! Except for the ring, which was picked out from another collection, the rest remains. James gave me nods of approval too.

I would strongly advise you to do the Si Dian Jin shopping with your mother‑in‑law. Pick something that you can see yourself wearing even after the wedding, and on a regular basis! Since it’s a gift of love and acceptance from her, it will make her happy to see you wear them everyday too. :p

FYI, these MODE Gold 916 Si Dian Jin designs you see here can be bought individually too – don’t you think these lovelies make wonderful, thoughtful gifts to your girlfriend, wife, mother and even in -laws too 🙂

It only took us less than a week to shop for our wedding bands!

If you look at the outfits I put on everyday, it is not hard to imagine that I tend to go for things that are minimalist yet classy.

The same for my wedding which is happening in a few weeks time! For my wedding gown, I am extremely thankful and privileged to have Michelle HuiMin from Bridal Veil to dress me up for that!

What is another big task to settle? Our wedding bands! The top of the mind brand for both James and I was Goldheart Jewelry (www.goldheartjewelry.com) because of the huge selection they have.

Furthermore, we have long heard of the highly raved Celestial Star Diamond collection from friends around us who have entered into their next phase of married life before us. Hence we have decided to check them out ourselves!

Don’t you feel that humans are just like stars?

The couple shines the brightest when their thoughts align.

Similarly for stars, they form one of the brightest constellations when they are aligned. This is the inspiration of their premium collection known as the Celestial Orion Collection.

Let me share with you some of their exquisite selection of engagement rings, eternity rings & wedding bands before revealing our pick! 😀


GH5


This premium collection is a tribute to the modern minimalist trend, and this is exactly how I would like my marriage to embody.

It is simple & elegant with two distinct features : the Celestial Star Diamond is the world’s first 73-faceted starburst diamond that scintillates with supreme luminosity of the brightest star.

Using the blue diamond scope, I viewed the Celestial diamond up close and my eyes were greeted with the most beautiful thing I have ever seen on earth: a spectacular eight-point starburst pattern that glittered so brilliantly due to the  more reflective environment inside the diamond that allow for more light to pass through. It is this patented design that a Celestial diamond possesses a superlative, brilliant scintillation and more “fire” than any other diamond.

Look closely at this design: the Celestial diamond is nestled in a 8-point star motif made of rose gold, which works like a charming tribute to the eight pointed starburst pattern found in the Celestial diamond.  Elegant, minimalist and with a touch of storied significance – needless to say, it was simply our dream choice.

True to its reputation as a “star” diamond, the iconic Celestial promises 5 Guarantees: 1) superior cut, 2) light symmetry, 3) brilliance, 4) fire and 5) sparkle performance. Watch video here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=LhliwkOGfq0

Celestial diamonds are graded with very strict standards and every Celestial diamond from 0.5ct is certified by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) attesting to its premium diamond quality. So guys and gals, if you are buying diamonds for an important event in your life such as your wedding, make sure you are getting the real stuff.

If you need further proof of the value of Celestial diamonds, you would be impressed to know that it scored distinction in all four categories in the Sarine Technologiesgrading system, which measures the brilliance, fire, sparkle and light symmetry of diamonds.

The Sarine Technologies grading is separate from GIA, so this means Celestial diamonds are certified by TWO independent institutions on its quality, which makes it a truly valuable diamond.

What’s more, each Celestial diamond comes with its own unique Sarine digital light performance report detailing its light performance and a 360-degree view of the diamond which can be access anytime. Here’s a sample of how it looks: http://tinyurl.com/ydckzkaa

However, do note that the grading is performed for Celestial diamonds with 0.3 carat and above. So you can expect all Celestial diamonds in proposal rings to come with a Sarine Certification.

For Goldheart, the design continues beyond what you can see on the exterior of the ring. Like the icing to a cake (or inside the cake in this case!), there is a blue sapphire in the inner band. In fact, this is a unique concept called “Pure Blue” introduced by Goldheart since 2011! The blue sapphire symbolizes purity, fidelity and true love between a couple.

Initially, we thought having a blue sapphire on the inside as a design looks cute but after finding out the real reason behind the sapphire stone, we cannot help but be impressed by Goldheart’s commitment to telling every couple’s romance and love story. The blue sapphire is like a promise, or a secret, that is shared only between a couple in love (which is why it cannot be seen by from the outside… get it?). And because it is always in contact with your skin, it is like gentle touch from your S.O to remind you on the promise you’ve made together.


gh3


Don’t leave just yet because the Celestial range is not the only pretty range that caught our eyes that day.

If you belong to the cool and edgy crowd, the stylish Felicite Collection would fit you and your spouse perfectly.


gh6


Just look at the wide variety. I could spend all day trying on every single one of them!


gh7


Look at the detailings and how Goldheart play with the various gold e.g. rose, white and black gold on their rings here.


gh8


Another range that I was considering very seriously was the Intimo range.

Truth be told, Intimo was our first choice because I wanted to match the ring with my solitaire proposal ring. We discovered that the Intimo wedding bands also comes with a Pure Blue Sapphire in the inner band. It was a tough choice having to choose between these gorgeous designs but eventually we leaned towards the Orion Celestial range because James was besotted with the eight-pointed star motif. For me, seeing James happy made the call for me!

Ever wanted to become a goldsmith? Now, you can do that – without even sweating a single drop – with Goldheart’s Create-Your-Ring service. I thought that this idea was so cool and fun when the staff told me about it and you know what, the whole process takes place on a computer! It is a step by step procedure that lets you (go wild and) express your creativity/personality through your choice of ring design, band width, gold type, texture, gem setting, as well as engraving – both on the outside and insideof the ring! You have to take a look here to see what it is all about!: ww.goldheart.com/love_wedding


gh11


gh12


If you fancy having premium materials on your love bands, you can consider the Le Pure Platinum collection.

To me, this collection signifies “strength” as we know that platinum is one of the strongest metal on earth! (It is 60 times tougher than gold!) It is also very rare. Hence, would you agree that finding a soulmate who you are able to form strong emotional connection is like finding platinum?


gh13


I have to admit that I am not a girl who chases after fairytales. But even for me, it was love at first sight with their Enchantine collection. The details are delicate and feminine, featuring inspirations captured from fairytales that we are familiar with, such as dove wings, fairy lights, blooming roses and laurel wreaths.

I have a soft spot for whimsical designs so I think I will probably come back for a ring from this collection after the wedding. This is the part where I wish I had more than 10 fingers to fit on all these lovelies!


gh14


Look at the fine detailing, it is hard to resist being enchanted by it, don’t you think so?


gh15

Now, let’s recap some of the considerations before we make our final choice for our wedding bands? They are:

  1. Design
  2. Weight
  3. Feel
  4. The meaning behind each collection

I believe I speak for to-be-married couples that sometimes we experience difficulty in picking out the perfect ring and need to consult someone who knows jewellery more than you do. And I think you can relate when I say that the desire to know certain information strikes you at the most random moments, such as when you are on the train to work, in the middle of a meal or when you are lying in bed getting ready to sleep. The desire to get an answer NOW can make most of us anxious!

So I found out that Goldheart had created a FB chatbot called – would you guess it – “Bling”. This A-I enabled virtual assistant is designed to answer questions related to wedding jewellery, and is scripted to “talk” like a human. I must say that I was delighted chatting with Bling, like I just found a new friend!  May I have the pleasure of introducing Bling to you: : https://www.facebook.com/GoldheartJewelry/

To prove my point, take a look at my conversation with Bling below:


Screen Shot 2018-05-19 at 10.13.48 PM

Screen Shot 2018-05-19 at 10.19.36 PM


Screen Shot 2018-05-19 at 10.19.45 PM


The marvelous thing about Bling is that it REMEMBERS from our conversations on important dates leading up to my wedding day. After some time, Bling will remind me of the list of things I have to clear, which is really REALLY helpful now that the wedding is just a month away. I’m sure most of us have our ways of tracking, and if you are a heavy Facebook user, it wouldn’t hurt to have a friend to catch you just in case!

Besides weddings, Bling also keep track of other important dates in your life – such as birthdays to anniversaries – and alert you in a timely manner so that you have the time to shop for the perfect gift!

Guys will definitely find a friend in Bling, especially when you are planning to propose. Bling is capable of recommending the perfect proposal ring taking into consideration your budget and preferences. Shop on your phone or computer, shortlist and then visit a Goldheart boutique to examine it closer.

(Doesn’t this bring to mind J.A.R.V.I.S from the Iron Man movie series? Well, Bling was born less than 1 year ago in July 2017, so voice capabilities are still undeveloped!)

As I have shared extensively above, there is no lack of choices at Goldheart, who had taken great effort to offer modern, well-crafted designs that cater to different styles and sensibilities of couples.Where does one even begin?!

Well, my advice is that planning a wedding is like going on marathon – you need to build up your stamina and strength before you even start to run. As a leader in the love and romance category in Singapore, Goldheart had certainly walked the talk by being super generous with offering bridal resources and references. Besides chatting with Bling, you must check out their wedding blog (www.goldheart.com/weddingblog), which offers tips and advice for wedding.

One other thing that impressed me was how Goldheart had expanded their customer touchpoints, from the boutiques located islandwide, online website, social media and, of course, chatbot Bling. It doesn’t take long for Goldheart to feel like a friend that I can turn to and check in regularly for gift ideas or inspirations – no matter when or what time.

For couples who are getting married, I hope my experience in this blog had given you (new) ideas and inspirations for your big day!

EyeChamp Singapore – Why you should visit them this National Day Sale

Screen Shot 2017-08-07 at 8.31.18 PM

If you are looking at eyewear – be it sunglasses or prescription glasses, be sure to visit EyeChamp this National Day!

I shall not bore you with lengthy sales pitching nor hard selling but let me share 4 reasons why!
Firstly and most importantly, they are a champion when it come to the varieties of eyewear brands they carry. The branch we visited is situated in NEX Shopping mall. The moment we set foot into the store, we went ‘WOWWWW’ at how huge the store is.


CIMG1773


As usual, James is the more careful and less decisive shopper. Thus, it took him almost an hour to pick out just two pairs of eyewear due to the myriad of options he was given! There are even high end brands which are not commonly found in conventional optical shops, take for instances OliverPeoples which he eventually settled for.

Whereas for me, I was more decisive in what I wanted and so I made a beeline for their Prada and Rayban collection. Hehe!

Next, who doesn’t appreciate a bit of cost savings? There are having different promotions for most of the eyewear brands and the discount can go up to 30% off the usual retail price! WOOT!

This is on top of the fact that their prescription glasses are priced relatively cheaper than some of the other optical shops we visited.


CIMG1778


Lastly, not forgetting the friendly and helpful staff! I would gladly give 3 stars for their customer service! The explanation was thorough and clear. We didn’t even have to ask much questions to get our spectacles fixed that day.

Also, despite the endless flow of customers in and out of the store, I managed to pick up how meticulous their staff can be. One of the staffs was able to recognize a customer despite it being only her second visit which we found out later on after they struck up a conversation.

Without a doubt, they are going to thoroughly look after your needs in this shop! Isn’t that exactly the epitome of customer service!

If you feel that the above mentioned promotion is not appealing enough, you should continue to read on! Because thanks to our dear nation’s birthday aka National Day this year, there will be two sales going on concurrently:

1) 5 Days Sale – National Day
– Storewide 50% off
– $52 Special – additional $52 for upgrade to Transitions, Crizal prevencia, Crizal easy UV and progressive lens. (Usual Price: $100)

2) Free $20 Welcome voucher
– Free welcome voucher worth $20 with every new member registration.

Receive SMS updates and enjoy exclusive discounts when you sign up as their member.

Both promotions are only valid from 9 Aug to 13 Aug only!

NEW: adidas Originals Eyewear by Italia Independent

DSC03863

When it come to eyewear & shades, what are the first few brands that to the top of your mind?

The list can run on but it is still hard to plaster the image of adidas as an eyewear brand right? This is exactly the same sentiments we had as well till we own our very first pair of adidas Originals eyewear by Italia Independent!

This is the very first Italia Independent official launch in Asia and I must say their first collection is all ready to make a huge impact in the eyewear scene!

Starting with the Mens’ Sunglasses.

There are 14 sunglasses in total within this Fall/winter 2016 Collection of which I decided to choose something subtle yet charismatic! And so, I chose the “AOM003” Model with black metal frame.





Don’t you just fall in love with the minimalist yet stylist shape of this sunglass? What will make you fall in love even more would be the super-light frames that stand out for their soft surface that is both pleasant to touch and scratch resistant!





For its prescription glasses range, they have 12 frames in total. For this, I decided to go with something more flamboyant I would say? Lol!

The ‘flamboyance’ arise from its two colour tone which in this case is my favourite colour combination: Black & Gold! The two different colours come together so harmoniously  and the most attractive part is definitely the laser-etched Trefoil logo of adidas Originals that appears on the sides of both temples!





The emblem is also present in the ladies’ range!

For Maybeline, she decided to go with something more ‘Harry Porter-ish’! Good choice for her as I feel it fully helped her pull off that intellectual look!





Furthermore, a flat lenses tends to give the frames a contemporary & classic feel while ensuring optimum comfort and non-glare internally.

To push the level of comfort even further, it comes with an adjustable nose pads for a comfortable fitting. So wearing this for days continuously is not an issue at all!





The adidas Originals collection can be found at adidas Originals stores, Italia Independent boutiques, on both brands’ e-commerce platforms as well as selected authorized list of optical stores in Singapore and Asia.

The adidas Originals range will start from S$205 for sunglasses and from S$185 for prescription frames.








Do visit the stores and give the adidas Originals collection a try at least!

I am pretty sure you will fall in love with them like how we did!

NEW: #MyKiplingStyle, What’s yours?

15192546_1402558443095512_4132304386637961014_n

I must say that I have been very blessed with all the gifts that Kipling has gifted me! Let me walk you through some of the bags I own right now. I actually help out a little last year and they gave me 2 bags in return. My mom, being a fan of Kipling for the longest time, took the bags away from me right after I brought them home. Lol!

I brought their backpack and luggage to Japan with my family last year and I swear James was super jealous when I told him Kipling gifted me a luggage! Hehehe.

Traveling around with the luggage makes the entire journey so much lighter and easier – especially when we had to travel from town to town. We visited Kyoto, Osaka, Nara and  2 other places!





Other than being light, I was surprised by the compartments. They had so many compartments inside that you can stuff ANYTHING and EVERYTHING. I managed to squeeze in 3 pax worth of clothing and accessories for a good 8 days! Even though it was filled with clothes, it was not hard to bring it around because of the wide wheels underneath. I was so easy to roll them everywhere. The luggages are made of a durable material – Nylon which is able to withstand the rigors of regular travel.

Of course, all Kipling bag comes with a monkey keychain – so does the luggage! I travel out of Singapore at least 3 times a year so I am very much looking forward to my next trip with the luggage!

Next, Black and gold is my usual style when it comes to backpacks. However, I brought a colorful backpack (Sanna Print; collaboration collection with Finnish illustrator Sanna Mander) to Japan this time round! The City Park added colors to my autumn. It even comes with a limited edition Funfur Monkey keychain as well! I like this keychain more than the usual because of it’s fluffiness! 😛





I also own another bag with the same keychain! It was love at first sight with City Pack Navy Black and it is also my current favourite. This 100% leather bag is a combination of style, fun and practicality all in one! Isn’t it charming?

The drawstring pocket makes it easier for me to charge my phone with my powerbank in that compartment. I can charge and use my phone on the go without the need of holding that bulky powerbank in my hand. Easy reach pockets for the win!

I love how I can easily match my OOTD to this pretty City Pack! We can never go too wrong with black and glitters.





I will be sharing more on my Instagram how you can incorporate Kipling into your daily outfits so keep a lookout for #maybelineootd! Also check out the hashtag #MyKiplingStyle to see how other influencers style their Kipling.





Thank you blessed and Kipling for making me a happy girl! 🙂 Thank you for keeping our bags light and durable! 😀

NEW: adidas Originals Eyewear Media Launch

CIMG0047

adidas has been VERY hot lately and people are going crazy over their shoes. No doubt, us as well.

Well, Singapore is summer all year round so we get to wear sunglasses almost everyday (yay!). Be excited because adidas Originals by Italia Independent eyewear is now available in Singapore! It is also Italia Independent’s first official launch in Asia. Yay! Right here in Singapore somemore! Gracing this special evening were Mr Paolo Sasso, APAC Sales Consultant of Italia Independent and Mr George Lee, Managing Director of Sin Kwang Group.

To me, a pair of sunglasses or prescription glasses is a fashion accessory and everyone knows that on my Instagram!! We had fun trying out all the spectacles and sunglasses on the event itself.

Models also did a runway showcasing the different eyewear and looks from the latest collection. Interestingly, the drinks were also served in adidas themed – blue mocktails!





We were blown off when we saw the sunglasses. I couldn’t make up my mind if I should go for the sunglasses or prescription glasses frame because you know me – I REALLY am a sucker for glasses.

I love how slick looking they are! Some of the designs also came with a tinge of retro-ness too! The metal frames are my favourite!





I love how flat they are! It makes the entire outlook even trendier. The lenses are also treated with an internal non-glare treatment so you can read quickly, comfortably and clearly without straining your eyes.





If you prefer your shades to be more sporty, they have them in plastic frames too! Suitable for guys who wants to look extra sporty. Go on, go for them!





Not forgetting the prescription frames as well. I did not manage to take any photos of the metal frames which I personally love, but I will show them to you in another post! James and I took a few looks with the frames we got already 😀





The eyewear are all pretty unisex so you can share them with your other half anytime!





Our pick for their sunglasses! We really wanted what we wore below but they were already out of stock when we were there to redeem our eyewear 🙁 Do you trust me how popular they are now?!





adidas Originals eyewear by Italia Independent is retailing from $185 for prescription frames and $205 for sunglasses. Thank you Sin Kwang Group and Eye Trendy for bringing them in! Just so you know, they are also the sole distributor of adidas Originals Eyewear in Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia!

The DOT x ATIENZA collection comprises a range of fashionable ‘art pieces’, ranging from totes and clutches to cardholders and scarves in vibrant colours. To enable the consumers to flaunt their creativity and have fun, THE DOT X ATIENZA products are also available in “plain” options where consumers are able to personalise their totes, clutches and cardholders by colouring on them for a truly one-of-a-kind piece they can call their own.

There is never a dull moment with THE DOT.
