2015-04-17 05.31.48 1 copy

Not sure if anyone can remember this, but many months ago My Fat Pocket asked me to try out a new collagen drink for a month and the brand was kept as a secret till now! So mysterious and secretive one!

I was asked to go through a skin test before a blind test on flavours of products, fyi the flavour were developed based on all the bloggers choice. Packaging were also chosen by all the bloggers! We were asked to picked what type of flavour/packaging we prefer. Thanks god that the packaging is in pink. GOOD JOB!!! *tearing*

New Moon have a record of my skin condition and see if there’s any improvement after a month. Hees, I was quite happy with my original skin condition but I still wish that it will continue being healthy like now or improve. Which is even better lah!

I knew New Moon as a abalone brand, which I believe it’s like the deepest impression that everyone have for New Moon right? I never thought that the tasty collagen that I’ve been drinking for a month is actually New Moon, I really don’t see this coming. lol

I really like the fruity taste of New Moon Inner Radiance Collagen Drink, due to the high dosage of collagen (13,000mg) with active whitening properties (Glutathione) hence the thick viscosity of the drink as compared to other collagen brands in the market.

Glutathione can help to improve the health of every cell in the body, particularly apparent in the skin, hair and nails. Giving people a radiant glow which is caused by healthy cells and reduced toxicity in the body. And, the anti-oxidant in the drink are extract from Maqui Berry. Maqui Berry has the highest anti-oxidant properties based on ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity is a method of measuring antioxidant capacities in biological samples in vitro) value.

It’s okay with the words are boring you out, as everyone just want to know if this collagen drink really worked? Shall we take a look at my before and after skin test result:

Before: Collagen 25, Elasticity 15, Moisture 65
After: Collagen 30, Elasticity 36, Moisture 43

Everything improved except for my moisture level :/

But majority of the other bloggers moisture level increased, so I guessed it was because I did not take good care of my skin during that period. lol But with what said, I wouldn’t mind drinking collagen drink once in a while, it’s rather a easy way to improve skin. All we need is a bottle a day!!!!

Friendship Qualities: Honesty, Loyalty, Appreciative…

Many people said that true friends are hard to come by and making new friends when you’re a blogger or successful person is one of the hardest things to do. Let’s admit it every one of you out there would at least one person who make use of you in the past, sucks to say that it’s a growing up process. But still… I am adamant that there is good in people!

As a blogger for so many years, I’ve seen all sorts of people and the most common one is people who rides on other people fame. It happens to so many bloggers and it’s no longer something new to me anymore…

I’m against the idea of people taking advantage of those who treat them like a friend. These type of people is the one which I have no problem cutting off. Yutaki told me so many times that I am too naive when it comes to friendship and after knowing him for so many years I really got to admit that. Indeed, I am naive. So lesson learned and may this be the last that time I’ll be coming across with such people. And I also hope that people will make friend without any motive, and be more thankful, grateful and appreciative towards their friends.

This was what happened to me not long ago:

I knew this girl and let’s name her N in late 2013 as a sponsor and blogger. We became friends after quite sometimes, and I got to say that even after everything happened… I am STILL very thankful that she sponsored grooming and home boarding service for my dogs (In exchange of blogpost or Instagram post of course). But I finally decided to terminate the sponsor and stop hanging out with her. As after narrating what happen to us, all my close friends said that she’s full of motives and take friend as a stepping stone. Initially I didn’t want to believe it but she indeed is.

Backstabbing – Talk behind people’s back. Check

I am utterly disgusted by things she did, as she always talk about ALL her girlfriends till rot and still hang out with them as if nothing happened. This is not how friends should function! No???

I have look over all these things because I believe that she will treat Eunice and me differently but how sure can we be? What’s more all the girls is not even related to me, so why should I care? As long as she don’t hang out with people that she have been constantly talking behind their back, I don’t see it as a problem.

Bitching is normal and I am no angel, I do talk about girls I don’t like too. But the difference is, I don’t hang out with them and neither will I do it even in the future.

But Q is someone quite close to N and there was once Eunice asked her, “You say Q till like this you sure she’s your friend?” She avoided the question. And during her cafe opening, the moment I reached the first thing she told me was “I want to bitch about Q to you”. I wondered why she even invite her, if she don’t like her? I’m confused.

Another time when went to her friend D’s yacht birthday party and complained about how boring the party is and even her grandmother can party better than them. Once again, I told her, “If you hate it so much. Why go in the first place?”

Her replied “I thought that it would be fun”.

There was another blogger called SP who N sponsored (Not Qiuqiu), she complained that the pictures SP took is so ugly and yet she still ask for the next appointment again. Which I said, “If you don’t like the way she blog. Don’t sponsor her anymore. As simple as that!” I have been constantly telling her that don’t hang out with people who make you feel like shit.Believe it or not, Eunice didn’t tell me anything that N told her until recently.

I can remember these 3 girls was because I’ve seen them personally before. Furthermore I am very selective when it comes to topic like this, I only listen and read some of it.

Pretentious. Check

Most recent incident, which made me realized that N is a very sneaky and pretentious person.

Eunice, N and me went to flea together and N was judging about how stuck up the girls across my table is, which I mentioned to her that the girls are from one of the popular Youtube channel group and her replied was “Got a little fame need to be so stuck up?”. You wouldn’t even believe it that my purple highlights got made fun because of this reason (I didn’t told her that the purple hair girl was actually one of the founder, alright too much hint. By the way, I’m not talking about xx. Lol!)

N is very friendly with the male founder after that, so we guessed she probably know that the purple hair girl that she judge was actually his wife right? Still got the cheek to ask people out for watermelon soju next time after judging people wife, what are you going to talk about when you guys meet up? Telling him how stuck up her wife is?

Following I told her that the founder will ask her to join them for sure, which she had this disbelief look on her face. But she seems interested and began to ask us about what they do and what’s the channel about, which we explained to her about it. I purposely repeated the word POPULAR.

We are not sure why but N seems really interested and even went to buy their tees after that, although she complained about the pricing confusion after she purchased it. Also that if she knew the real price she wouldn’t even bought it in the first place.

Yet she still went back to the flea the next day and her reason was because she needs to buy another t-shirt for her bf’s friend. But the thing is she didn’t mention it in our group chat, till I tagged her in the comment on my picture which the YouTuber commented. (The photo has been deleted by me)

Now everything is cleared about why she suddenly keep talking about how nice and friendly those girls is. Bet she did her homework and got interested after knowing how popular they are.

Dishonesty. Check

You once said that all the model girls around you is so fake and even your bf said that to you before, that’s why when he prompted the question on whose your bff. You told Eunice that, you concluded that she was the only one. But are you sure that you treat her like one?

I know exactly how Eunice treats her friend, she show loyalty and protects all her friends fiercely regardless of what, if they are lucky to be considered as one. She is definitely someone whom I can count on and I know it very well that she has my back, which is why I’ll do the same for her. In such an hypocritical world, a straightforward girl like her who says what she feel and think is hard to come by.

Although most people may not be able to handle her straightforward character, but for me that’s one of the qualities I look for in a friend. She’s honest, blunt and harsh but that’s how she is. In exchange, she accepts brutal honesty from friends without any complain. Which is the same for me, that’s why we clicked off very well.

Regardless of how “heartless” she claimed herself to be, I’ve seen how big-hearted and forgiving she is when it comes to friendship. Even when I explained to her on why I want to give up on N and my friendship yet she still choose to fight for YOU.

Eunice really believe and sincerely want the friendship to work between them.

And, no it wasn’t because I want Eunice to end the friendship with N, that’s why I wrote this super long blog entry to jeopardize their friendship. I genuinely think that it’s unfair for Eunice if I do that because N did nothing to her.

You know, I am someone who usually ends a friendship the moment I trace any deceitful. I drift away from people easily, cause I prefer to have less bullshit to deal with. Yet I try for N, I tried telling her in a nicer way and straightforward way. Gave her chances to see if N is like what my friends predict to be.

She didn’t prove me wrong, that’s why I gave up.

Plus… What would I become if I turn out to be the type of person I hate the most?

I’m completely fine if Eunice still want N to be her braid-maids, because I have to make things clear. N did nothing to Eunice at all, so I don’t see any reason for them to fall out because of me.

Eunice once said, if everything my close friends said was right. The moment I stop hanging out with N, she wouldn’t be hanging out with Eunice anymore. Because she has no single beneficial value and the only thing that kept them together was me.

This part is purely stupid and ridiculous ↓

And N on the other hand, right after I unfollow her, she unfollowed me and Eunice. I would have totally understand it if she unfollowed me but Eunice? Really? What have she done?

Eunice was disappointed when she noticed N wasn’t on her following list, so she confronted N and her excuse is she did not remove Eunice, but even if she explain it Eunice wouldn’t even believe it that she accidentally unfollow and I thought that if she follow back, Eunice will think that she childish by unfollow and follow back. But she decided to forget about it, since she thought that Eunice unfollow her and she don’t want to look like a fool.

I didn’t know that it’s possible to “accidentally” unfollowed someone, out of so many people yet the person coincidentally is Eunice. I didn’t know this is how you treat someone who you concluded that she’s your bff, you don’t even bother to explain anything. You rather believe on your stupid assumptions and wouldn’t even go an extra mile for her. What you’re trying to say is SHE’S NOT WORTH IT what!

What best-friend bullshit, you can continue living in denial. Going to hi-tea with all the girls that you’ve bitched about constantly, then think oh-i-am-so-real-and-such-a-good-friend yet why is all my gfs so fake around me?

I really pity those girls who really did treat you as their friend.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Princess attitude. Check

“If you ask Miyake, confirm is my fault.”

No, you’re never at fault. Others are always at fault, aren’t they?

Everything you do is right and everyone else is always ruining everything.

I went to Montigo for my boyfriend’s birthday, my fault that we left you out and didn’t tell you. But when you requested to visit my friend’s kid at hospital without telling me, and I only get to found out when my friend asked me “Eh, you not coming with N?” NOT YOUR FAULT. Oh I’m sorry princess but the world revolve around the sun, not you.

I’m impressed that somehow you always has an excuses for everything, and you always get away by playing the poor innocent victim who tears can’t stop flowing down as it’s always seems to be one huge conspiracy against you. You will be really lucky if you can find someone who will stand you for all these. But someday someone will karate chop that imaginary tiara off your head and you’ll realise that you’re just an ordinary girl like the rest of us, you’re not perfect and certainly NOT A PRINCESS.

Ungrateful and unappreciative. Check

N told Eunice that she treasure us but she felt that she’s like an outsider and we don’t treasure her. Not only that, she also said “Miyake got treat me like close friend meh?”

You really bring disappointment to the new level… When I mentioned this to my close friends all of them was asking are you mad? They said, you should remind her that the 2 bag of silicone in her breast was only sponsored because of you.

How can you even say such thing? I knew that you wanted to go for boobs job, so I went through all the trouble and even blog for the procedure, in order for you to get the sponsor. Even during the Korea trip, I have to apologies to the sponsor several times because of you. I didn’t even said anything, I was being understanding as a friend.

You asked if I treat you as a close friend? So you forgot that I was the one who took care of you when you’re in pain? You also forgot that I was also the one who shampoo your hair when you couldn’t even raise your hand because of the surgery? Did you also forgot that because of the pain, you are too afraid to move so you stayed in the car while I got out and buy the medicine for you?

Why would I go through all these for someone who is not my close friend? To be honest, I’m not angry, all the people around me know. I’m just disappointed on the effort I wasted on someone who doesn’t even deserve it. That’s all.

A friend told me that maybe I’ll have to give my kidney to show that I’m a friend. What it mean was making friends with unappreciative people is very hard. If you guys have been through this type of situation, you would probably know how I exactly feel.

I can’t believed that all this times I’ve stood up for you by telling them that you’re a nice friend and how you wouldn’t turn out like the rest of the girls. If you really turn out to be one, I’ll be very disappointed cause I believed that this friendship will work.

Your shop opening I went there and you asked me to cut ribbon without telling me anything before hand, if I wasn’t your close friend. I would have charge you for event appearance. But did I ever charge you for anything even when you ask for help? NO.

Either you think that I’m running a charity or you’re taking me for granted.

You want to think that you’re the fool again? Who is the one being the biggest fool now?

Maybe to you, a friendship is someone who goes hi tea with you, taking close pictures and post on Instagram, calling each other names like baobei, darling, dardar and allowing you to stab them behind their back. That’s your definition of a friend :)

Keep this in mind, if I don’t even treat you as a friend. I could have sabotage your business by showing the chat between Eunice and you and it will make thing even worst, but nope I’m not going to do that cause no matter how disappointed and pissed off I am. You’re still once my friend, so I’m going to let all the major thing go.

My moral in life is simple, you treat me nice, I’ll treat you better.

Note to self:

Not everyone appreciate what you do for them, you just have to figure out who’s worth your kindness and who’s just taking advantage.

KAO Biore Aqua Jelly

I am sure most people are familiar with Biore Makeup Remover brand now, as their makeup remover is always selling like hotcakes in both Japan and Singapore. Therefore they are ranked as the No.1 Makeup remover brand!

For today, I’ll be featuring one of our Singaporean all-time favorite jelly makeup removers “Biore Aqua Jelly Makeup Remover”, rejoice my girls! It’s back and even better than before! NEW IMPROVED formula: Smoother, lighter consistency but with the same high cleansing ability that allows you to easily remove even the most stubborn waterproof makeup!

NEW and OLD (respectively) Biore Aqua Jelly Makeup Remover comparison

divider

New Biore Aqua Jelly Makeup Remover packaging design is feminine and slimmer but the bottle size is still the same, 230ml.

aj03

Formulation wise, I find the new Biore Aqua Jelly Makeup Remover more watery and just by pumping or titling the bottle, I can see that the new formula is definitely more watery as compared to the old one which has a thicker consistency. The smoother texture is also much easier to rinse off than the previous one, which makes removing makeup much easier and faster!

I hate the feeling of tugging my skin whether it’s applying foundation on my face or removing makeup, and the old Biore Aqua Jelly Makeup Remover does make my skin feels like I’m tugging it. Do you know that tugging will increase the risk of stretching skin, over long term, results in wrinkle. Especially for our eyes area, it’s very delicate therefore you got to invest on a good makeup remover that gentle yet powerful enough to remove your all makeup!

aj05

↑ Skin feels so refreshing and smooth after rinsing! (Eyebrow is embroidery)

While the new Biore Aqua Jelly Makeup Remover glides onto my skin well, it allows me to remove my makeup gently without leaving behind any residual makeup nor sticky/greasy feelings. Moreover, my skin feels very smooth and moisturized after that! Because of the moisturizing essence that makes up 40% of the whole product!

COMPARISON FOR YOU TO HAVE A BETTER IDEA OF WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE:

The most stubborn makeup I have with me now is Rimmel London Provocalips, which is well-known for its crazy pigmented and long lasting power lipsticks. Previously, I went to shower and rinse/rub my lips with facial cleanser and the colour still stay beautifully on, my usual popular Japan brand makeup remover can’t even remove 50% of the lip color off.

Therefore, I think that it will be a good time to put Biore Aqua Jelly Makeup Remover to test and see if it will live up to its name!

Let’s put Biore Aqua Jelly Makeup Remover to the test!!!

RINSEOFF

Just to be fair, I set timer as 1 minute for it and all I did was rubbing my finger gently in circular motion just like how I would remove makeup from my face and delicate eye area.

And as you can see, competitor brands can’t remove the lip colour completely and there are still some residues. Both the old and new Biore Aqua Jelly Makeup Remover is on par, however New Aqua Jelly feels lighter and smoother so it’s much easier to remove.

divider

I know most girls want to look their best, which is why we use makeup but don’t forget to remove all the makeup properly with a good makeup remover brand. You wouldn’t want your skin to have problems from makeup residue right?

aj04/p>

Furthermore cleaner face also means your skincare will be able to penetrate effectively into your skin. Biore is one of the best makeup removers brands I’ve ever used, regardless if it’s water, sheets or jelly base all of them are able to take out all kinds of makeup. Best of the best is, it doesn’t irritate my skin or eyes at all. If you’re considering getting a new makeup remover after your current one, you may want to consider switching to Biore Aqua Jelly.
