A Day In My Shoes With ASUS ZenBook Flip UX360

As mentioned before, I am a serious workaholic and sometimes I work through day and night without ever stopping my work on the laptop hence, I am really glad I have my trusty companion, ASUS ZenBook Flip UX360 with me.  Being an entrepreneur and self employed, I love how ASUS Zenbook Flip UX360 complements my work. I am super excited to share that the ZenBook Flip is also available with higher performance Core i5 and i7 processors now!

Read on to find out how I implement ASUS ZenBook Flip UX360 in my daily routine.

Usually I start my day by doing some work at home like flat lays and all!

I work on the go ALOT. Basically, I even work in the car and while driving. Crazy but true. So when I work in the car, I like to use it in tablet or laptop mode. Did I mention that ASUS ZenBook Flip UX360 comes with a 360-degree Flip Screen so that you can switch  your it effortlessly between a high-performance laptop and a lightweight tablet at any time with no hassle! It provides 4 convenient viewing modes: Tent, Presentation, Laptop and Tablet mode.

And then I go for meetings with people and in-between meetings I steal a short break or lunch at a quiet cafe! I love Starbucks and often go for their Matcha Latte Soy and a piping hot croissant.

Then I start working and whip out my camera or very often or not, my phone to take flat lays. This is what typically every blogger do when they have a new product or food on the table. Yes, this is how I take my flat lays. Nice?

Having OCD is a tiring thing! Sometimes after lunch, I usually get all sticky and opt for a change of clothing so I feel fresher. I keep a few pieces of clothing for various occasions in my car so I get to change whenever I want! Then I go for more meetings. Meetings are mostly at cafes, and sometimes I steal a few minutes to catch a show online. I like to use the tent version when I am at that. Presentations with people definitely have to stick to presentation mode.

After work is done, I go for my next appointment which is usually a beauty bloggers’ event with dinner. We get to mingle, get first hands news on newly launched products and have a cosy dinner at the same time. Besides work and alone time, events and dinner with friends #flipsmyday too!

After I am done with my long day, I go back home to continue working again. I would whip out my camera wire to connect it to ASUS ZenBook Flip UX360 and transfer photos over for editing.

I would end the day by finishing up work on my ASUS ZenBook Flip UX360 or simply catching on unfinished episodes of the previous show I was watching.

Typically my day can get rather routine and some might say boring.  Thanks to ASUS ZenBook Flip UX360, my day is surely less boring, as I get to sneak a few peeks at my favourite drama series. I simply adore ASUS ZenBook Flip UX360’s Intel Core m ultra-low voltage processor, giving it a long battery life so I can do work outside or on the plane for a good 12 hours, no problem! Even after a long day at work, its battery life is still left with 50% or more when I reach home.

REVIEW – Svenson Treatment Solutions

Hello again!

Attended the Svenson Hair Enrichment Workshop a few weeks ago and was really pleased to know more about how to tackle hair and scalp problems. Thank you for sharing such insightful information with me, Svenson! There was a complimentary hair scalp analysis and also a 5 course meal c/o Monochrome Bistro for us bloggers. The fish and tiramisu were my favourites! Too bad I didn’t managed to take a photo of the tiramisu.

ABOUT SVENSON

SVENSON is a leading brand of solutions for hair and scalp problems using the most advanced technologies. With over 40 years of trichological expertise and knowledge, Svenson offers scientific diagnosis and customized and effective solutions to almost all hair problems.

Operating a global network of hair centers today, there are 54 branches across Asia region, including China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Taiwan, Korea, Indonesia, Brunei, Thailand, and of course, Singapore.

Today, they are proud to present its three best-selling hair care treatments: Folligro, Micro-Transdermal Therapy (MTT) and PLGA Total Solution.

1. FOLLIGRO

The latest treatment to be introduced, Folligro, delivers a potent mix of vital oxygen and rich nutrients deep into the roots and stimulates greater cell regeneration and collagen production for significant results.

Making use of Radio Frequency (RF) to promote regeneration of tissues and hair growth, the energy is fractionally delivered in micron spots into the dermal layers of the skin via 22 uniquely-designed gold conductive pins.

The Folligro treatment takes about 45 minutes and is pain-free. The scalp is first cleansed and hair is blown dry. An Amino Peptide Solution is then applied directly on one section of the scalp, followed by immediate application of RF energy over the same section. This is repeated in sections all over the crown area before a scalp massage is performed to end the treatment.

2. MICRO-TRANSDERMAL THERAPY (MTT)

Using a handheld micro-needle roller device with a wheel attached to the handle, the Micro- Transdermal Therapy (MTT) treatment works by triggering the production of human growth factor.

Outfitted with a total of 540 micro-needles, each of varying lengths from 0.2mm to 2.0mm, the device is rolled over the skin, causing the needles to press against the scalp tissue, resulting in minor surface wounds. The body must then work to produce new skin in the area of the wound and releases the human growth hormone, collagen and other chemicals to assist with this process.

In addition, the treatment also creates a new transcellular route (microchannel) for the delivery of small doses of active ingredients of different medications, such as the Svenson MPC Solution, to enter deeper tissues.

This efficacious solution contains vitamins, amino acids, co-enzymes, minerals, hyaluronic acid, gluthathione and copper tripeptides that stimulate the growth of epitelial cells of hair bulb, inhibits catagen phase and stimulates anagen phase (new growth).

This treatment is effective for common male and female baldness problems, such as male front- parietal alopecia, diffused hair loss and post-pregnancy alopecia.

3. PLGA TOTAL SOLUTION

Svenson’s PLGA Total Solution is a breakthrough Do-It-Yourself home treatment that combines remarkable properties of the rare Loquat leaf and nanotechnology to produce noticeably thicker, fuller looking hair for those suffering from thinning hair.

The key active compound extracted from the Loquat leaf is Corosolic acid, traditionally used as a herbal medicine. This herbal extract encourages better blood circulation and manages testosterone level, often the primary cause of hair loss.

To be applied daily after hair wash using a light head massage method on problem areas, clients can expect to see a gradual increase in fine, thin and thick hair growth at alopecia neurotic areas from the convenient PLGA Total Solution home treatment, from as early as two months after starting. A typical complete treatment process will take six months of consistent application.

Screen Shot 2015-05-16 at 2.28.45 am

After the presentation of the products, we were introduced to the 5-step massage directed by the therapist which we all tried on ourselves at the same time. Having previously taken a short course under Kimage training school, I have learnt to do head massages but this was pretty different. I will definitely use this instead because it requires lesser strength and seems effective.

PROFESSIONAL HAIR AND SCALP CARE TIPS FROM SVENSON

  • Shampoo daily, or twice daily, using the appropriate shampoo for your hair and scalp type
  • When applying styling products, avoid getting them on the scalp
  • When blow-drying, avoid direct strong heat and keep the blow-dryer moving
  • Brush or comb hair gently especially when wet
  • Practice daily scalp massage − recommended to use Svenson’s NEW 5-Step Head Massage (as detailed below)

HOW TO SPOT HAIR LOSS

  • Significantly more hair falls during combing, brushing and shampooing
  • Scalp feels sensitive; inflammation (redness), prone to getting itchy, oily and scaly
  • Frontal hairline starts to recede with more small “baby” hair appearing
  • Overall hair becoming more limp and lacks body or volume
  • Hair texture becomes finer and hair growth appears slower

Each of us were kindly given some sample products to bring home. I started using the products the very next day and to my delight, the volumizing shampoo was too good to be true. I have to say it restored my crowning glory! More on the shampoo will be shared later in the post.

BIO-PROTEIN PRE-SHAMPOO TREATMENT

DSC05950 DSC05952 DSC05953 DSC05954DSC05961

The treatment was to be applied before shampooing and I quite like that the treatment soften my scalp and hair. I could feel it was easier to detangle my hair afterwards. I like that the treatment was not harsh and did not cause any burning sensation at all. Usually I am quite afraid of treatment solutions due to the harsh ingredients included. However, for this range, I quite like it!

VOLUMIZING SHAMPOO

DSC05955DSC05956DSC05963

When I first applied this product on to my hair I was shocked at how cleanse my scalp was! I love the minty cooling feel after shampooing my hair with this. Felt instantly refreshed afterwards. I also felt my hair was more volumized overall and not as flat as it was usually even after a whole day of activities. I checked with my hairstylist when I went back to cut my hair and she complimented that my hair was softer and less oilier as before which is a good thing!

PLGA TOTAL SOLUTIONS

DSC05957 DSC05958 DSC05960 DSC05970 DSC05972

The reviews of this product is incredible. Given only a 10 day sample, I was able to tell that I faced lesser hair drop during this period. There was lesser hair clogged in the sink after a shower. If you are interested to find out more about this product, you could read up on the properties and benefits above. I personally found this product to be quite precious since it had a lifespan of only 10 days! I had to make sure I finished within 10 days.

I hope this post helped you in discovering more about Svenson and its latest technology. Thank you for reading and stay tune for more beauty reviews xx

Food Tasting – Brunch at Re! Fill restaurant at Hotel Re!

Hope everyone had a smashing weekend! 

I had a great one thanks to Hotel Re! and the lovely girls, Cordelia, Eunice, Mayne and Honey (my girlfriend and +1). 

Was invited to grace a food tasting event by my good friend, Amelia who was close friends with Cordelia. Thank you for the invitation babe if you ever read this! 

So anyway, this food tasting was to try out the new brunch menu at Re!Fill, Hotel Re’s restaurant which was newly launched in September! Trying out a new healthy and nutritious menu, I must say I was so impressed with how dishes could be healthy yet flavourful at the same time! They are currently also offering a 20% discount till the 31 December 2014 for this exciting new menu! 

Only available exclusively on weekends and selective public holidays, from 10am to 2pm, it should be on your list of ‘brunch places to try’! The venue is also easily accessible by their free shuttle bus service. This is a great place for tertiary students who are looking for a peaceful setting to have brunch at. 

We also had the honour to meet Celebrity Chef William Ang. He is such an inspiration and a really funny, humble person. 


Enough words, let me show you the wonderful dishes they serve! 

Jean’s Classic Breakfast

The classic breakfast which remains a favourite with men and also my choice of a hearty breakfast! Featuring the absolute must-haves, milky scrambled eggs, golden hash browns, chicken sausage, baked beans, sautéed portobello mushrooms, cherry tomatoes and toasted garlic bread topped with crispy turkey bacon.


Cherie’s Slipper Lobster Croissant

Not lacking behind the lobster roll craze these days, Hotel Re! has come up with their own signature lobster roll differentiating it with a croissant base instead! Generously filled with a mixed of grilled slipper lobster tossed with chopping celery, chive, tomato in Japanese dressing and tobiko. Accompanied by truffle fries, this is an irresistible and elevating dish! 


Eileen’s Salmon Bagel

Give in to your temptations and indulge in smoked salmon, scrambled eggs, grilled tomatoes, mesclun salad all perfectly encrust in a tasty toasted bagel with homemade zesty lemon cream spread. 


Shermaine’s BeRe!Licious Pancake

And, finally of course we have the highlight of the meal. Initially wanting to have this as my main instead, the lovely girls told me to order this as a dessert instead! I must say, am I glad I did. It was so good, we finished it within 5 minutes. It was that good. Topped with mixed berries, drizzled with chocolate and strawberry sauce, this is a must for any dessertarian. You could also opt for the healthier choice and have it with butter and maple syrup if you prefer. Am I missing it already! 


If you are unable to decide on whether you want to try sweet or savoury, you should order both! But if say, you do not want to waste food, fret not! At Re! Fill, they provide top ups even for pancakes at very reasonable prices ranging from $2 to $3! You could also top up your beverage at a minimal price. Their drinks menu is also quite extensive. 


Instagram Contest

Also, they are hosting a staycation contest where you can win a complimentary 2D1N stay in their deluxe room. The one with the highest vote wins!

1. Visit Re!Fill Restaurant for brunch
2. Strike a nice pose with your favourite brunch item!
3. Tag Hotel Re with hashtag #hotelre and #hotelrebrunch
4. A lucky winner will receive a complimentary 2D1N stay cation in their deluxe room (worth $320++)

After the event, the sweetie pies went on to bring us around the place to see the rooms. The rooms are quite huge and comes with cute happy retro themes ready to impress. We had the honour to visit the superior rooms, business room, family suite and the splendid Gold themed suite. Amongst all, I would really love to stay in their splendid Gold themed suite which is also their bridal suite. It is really spacious and comes with a water bed which I like. 















Also, not forgetting the alfresco dining area which is really cute! They have retro billy bombers inspired couches to suit their retro theme. This is one of the popular wedding photo shoot areas! Even my girlfriend wants to have her photo shoot here. 






Thats all for this post! Thank you for reading. 

Love, 
Sydney

Food Review – Brunch at Penny University

Hope you guys had a smashing week!

Went to Penny University for brunch today and it was so pack! We were told we would have to wait for at least 20 to 30 minutes. But thank god, it wasn’t that long.

There were a few waiting chairs outside the café but as there were too many people; we decided to roam around the neighborhood instead. Opposite was Oh Deli cafe, which I have heard raves about too and have wanted to visit initially.

When it was our turn, we were given a seat inside next to the bookshelves where all the magazines and books lie. I like how the magazines are updated ones and the café gave off positive and cozy vibes. I find it to be a fantastic place for both couples and large cliques.

When the food came, we were slightly disappointed though…the toast was certainly not worth the price we paid for. The eggs were scrambled but tasted like what I could easily cook at home. Boyfriend skipped the toast and the salad at the side. As for the muesli, it was okay but not worth the price too. The granola was tasty but I thought the yoghurt did not go well with the granola. It tasted weird in my opinion (FYI, I am a crazy fan of yoghurt especially greek yoghurt. I have at least 2-3 cups every week).

The iced chocolate and Moroccan rosebuds tea was good though. I guess the drinks are the reason why so many people come to this café! Perhaps the next time, I will be sure to check out their caffeine and of course give their other dishes another go!

Also, parking was quite limited but we were lucky and managed to score a lot the moment we turned in. However, be prepared for no parking space when you go at peak hours though!

So…that’s about it. Thank you for reading guys!

Love, 
Sydney

Food Review – Desserts at Fabulous Baker Boy

Hi guys! 


I am back after such a long hiatus. 

Since I was in a really lousy and shitty mood, I persuaded my boyfriend to bring me to a cafe for some sweet treats. 

We headed to the Fabulous Baker Boy situated at the foot of Fort Canning Park. It is quite difficult to find parking and we parked at the nearest parking opposite to club Dream. Dream has taken over the old club Zirca for some who are unsure where. 

Even though it is at a pretty deserted place, it was certainly not quiet AT ALL. I have always wondered why cafes enjoy being situated at the weirdest and most deserted locations. 

We were greeted promptly by the staff who nicely pointed out to us that they are only serving coffee, cakes and tea which I misunderstood at first as coffee cakes and tea where I stupidly asked if there were still any red velvet cakes left because I would be so disappointed. It was then, I saw the menu and realised they served savoury items on their menu too! Haha, silly me came here without doing proper research.

After which, we went to choose our cakes and sat down to wait. We ordered two slices of cakes, the Red Velvet, their specialty and also Big Mess (literally a big mess after eating). And, the red velvet was SO GOOD, I finished the entire cake ALL BY MYSELF. I liked that the cake was not that sweet and the cream cheese icing was very thin! Boyfriend’s selection, however was not very nice to me, maybe because I was never quite a fan of chocolate cake! And yea I do know red velvet cake is actually just chocolate cake with red colouring.








Yummy! I will definitely be back to try out their savoury items!


So thats all guys! Thank you for reading and hope you guys found this helpful.

Love, 
Sydney

Food Review – Knuckles + Hatter Street

Hello lovely people and welcome back to my space. 

Been out running errands today and hardly had time to rest but nevertheless, today is a fulfilling day! 

Today’s post will be a review on two cool new hangouts. I am digging the atmosphere on this street off Kovan. 

#Throwback to yesterday. Basically, we did not intended to go into Knuckles. Before yesterday, I had no idea Knuckles even existed. If not for their truffle fries we would never have went in. As we were already quite full from dinner, we only ordered truffle fries. 

Situated at a prime location next to the ever crowded Hatter Street and Nakhon Kitchen, there is a huge following here as well. If you don’t already know, Knuckle is owned by the very same owners of Nakhon. One success after another…when can that day be mine already. HAHA.

It is a newly established restaurant serving very reasonably priced German and Western cuisine. They offer pork knuckles at only $8! Even the truffle fries (tastes EXACTLY like skinny pizza’s truffle fries which is absolutely relish!) cost only $6! The best part is there is no GST or service tax. 
The music here is fantastic and I love the funky tables and chairs here. They look like huge ass crates. The only thing here I don’t really fancy is, payment has to be done at the counter and not at the table. But other than that, it’s cool. 

So basically, I found that Kovan is becoming quite hip with three popular cafes and restaurants all on the same street. And because I had always wanted to try Hatter Street, I went after dinner today. 
We had the waffle with ice cream and oreo cookie brownie. Both desserts were so good. Not to exaggerate, but I think they may have the best waffle ever. It was crisp, light and was accompanied with tangy caramel sauce which boyfriend commented that it tasted like durian. 


 With that, thats the end of this post. Thank you for reading guys! 

Love, 
Sydney

Food Review – Dinner at Grub

Happy Sunday folks! 

Ran some errands today and visited my friend’s place at Tanglin. OOTD shots were taken at the park just outside her apartment.

Skirt: Bangkok

For dinner, we went to Grub located at Bishan Park. It was crazily packed even at 8pm! There were 7 in waiting with us. Starving, we wanted to go somewhere else instead but decided upon that there were no where any better nearby. While waiting, we went to shift our car and parked at somewhere nearer Grub. We only found out there was a designated parking space near Grub after we reached the place. The better parking is located just next to Bishan Golf Range where I used to have my golf lessons at. 



Boy, are we glad we stayed! The food was relatively good. The truffled eggs cocotte was incredible and priced at $7, I thought it was value for money. We liked how the eggs had a slight truffle taste to it and wasn’t too strong. The toasts were lightly baked and had a slight rosemary herb taste to it which boyfriend loved. This was the highlight of the meal.


Boyfriend had the steak + fries as main course, while I had the Sakura Ebi pasta. The ribeye steak was nicely done and tender. The Sakura Ebi pasta was a tad salty and left me feeling quite sick after awhile. Boyfriend loved it though.



For dessert, we ordered the churros as we have heard raves about it. Boyfriend loved the churros but I thought there was nothing special. We both however found the chocolate and vanilla sauces to be quite diluted and not as thick as how the sauces should actually be. 


With that, this is all. Thank you for reading guys! Have a lovely Sunday you all.

Love,

Food Review – Baguette, Medz and Ku De Ta

Happy Wednesday guys!

This is a throwback to last Saturday’s activities. It was a typical long day for me, I had to meet 3 different group of friends. 

Met my Le Mini Gang clique for brunch at CMPB, Demsey. As this was our usual hang out place, I did not take any photos haha.

Took some photos along the way while waiting for my second group of friend for dinner and dessert.

We had a horrible experience at Medz. The grilled chicken my friend had was uncooked and all red inside. We asked for a change and the management agreed to change to another dish however the wait was too long. Along the way, the servers also accidentally delivered the wrong dishes to us a couple of times, which was rather annoying. 


After dinner, we went for dessert at Paris Baguette. We ordered a couple of sweets for sharing. We had mini croissants, twisted chocolate french pastries, egg tart, and pudding. 



After dessert, we split and I went to attend a girlfriend’s party at Ku De Ta. 






Thank you for reading, guys! Till the next update.
