Perfect Date!

The way to a woman’s heart would always be chocolates, diamonds and flowers. I love to surprise my girl friends with flowers and you can never imagine their beautiful happy faces when they receive them!

So it was my beautiful best friend, Sindy birthday next week and because she will be out of town, we celebrated much earlier! I wanted to surprise her with Omakase at Sushi Jin but she was rather full from all her birthday dinners that she wanted something light so I brought her to Publico Deli – a quaint cafe across Robertson Quay.

I got her beautiful flowers from Floral Garage Singapore, where I always purchase my bouquets from. I could even show you receipts of all the flowers I have bought from them! I like them because they are prompt with delivery and they sell the most gorgeous bouquets at affordable prices.

Skin Whitening and Sun Protection with BeautéScience Advanced Formula EstheWhite & EstheShield

Do you know the importance to consume beauty and skin supplements on a daily basis? It is important to know that as we age, it becomes almost impossible to consume sufficient nutrients for the skin simply by our daily food intake.  A recent study has shown that 80% of skin aging is caused by uv rays including wrinkles and skin laxity. As little as 2% increase in sun damage can cause our skin to age by 3 years! Not to mention on long term basis it gives us pigmentation, loose skin and even yellowing of skin tone and destroy our skin texture.

Recently I got to try the highly anticipated twin pack – EstheWhite & EstheShield by BeautéScience, an advanced formula for enhanced skin whitening and sun protection with patented technology, and boy was I amazed with the results.

I really did see a positive change. I went to Thailand and forgot to bring my sunscreen but thankfully, I brought EstheShield and EstheWhite supplements along with me. I remained fair and did not get any sunburnt at all. I had previously tried a few beauty supplements for skin whitening and sun protection but sadly I was allergic to it due to the ingredients and thankfully I did not have any chemical reaction to BeauteScience supplements! I also heard of similar testimonials during the launch.

Even though EstheWhite & EstheShield has just been launched in Asia on the 6th July, they have already garnered much positive feedback and responses among many major medical suppliers, hospitals, doctors and media personalities.

Personally, I have always been a fuss free person and such supplements actually work very well for me. I like the idea that its easy to consume – just 1 capsule of EstheWhite & 1 capsule of EstheShield in the morning after food and I am covered for the day!

I had the privilege to be part of its launch and check out the media personalities, suppliers and doctors that graced the event in the short clip below. Lunch served was delicious by the way.

PROMOTION AND GIVEAWAY

To celebrate the Asian launch of EstheWhite and EstheShield, 100 Twin Packs (Retailing at $199 each) will be given away! Simply like and follow BeauteScience’s Facebook page from now till 23 Sep 2017 to participate in the contest.

WHAT MAKES ESTHEWHITE & ESTHESHIELD STAND OUT?

1. EstheWhite uses US-patented colourless carotenoids with highest concentration phytoene and phytofluene from specially selected non- GMO tomato species. These colourless carotenoids lighten and even out skin tone by inhibiting melanin synthesis. They provide sun damage protection by absorbing UV rays, while also possessing powerful anti- inflammatory and anti-oxidant capabilities.

Clinical research shows after twelve weeks of consuming phytoene and phytofluene, there are significant improvements to skin quality: dryness and roughness are reduced, while suppleness, complexion evenness and texture are enhanced.

2. EstheShield’s key ingredient – Polypodium Leucotomos has been used for medicinal purposes since ancient Europe. Much of the research has been done over the past 40+ years, and many of these clinical studies have shown extracts of Polypodium Leucotomos to be very effective at defending skin against damage from the sun (ultraviolet radiation) when taken orally.

3. Both products will be marketed as a twin pack and will be distributed only through medical clinics and hospitals. They are made in the United States and comply with HSA (Singapore) requirements, therefore you can be sure of its safety.

4. How the twin pack works – while EstheWhite helps in brightening the skin, EstheShield protects the skin from the sun and prevents it from darkening. With just 1 capsule of each daily, the twin pack formulation provides you with a comprehensive and systemic solution to skin brightening and sun protection.

WHY ESTHEWHITE WORKS

(A) PhytoflORAL

Carotenoids are natural sun protectants found in plants. They absorb harmful UVA and UVB rays and supress free radicals that lead to premature ageing and dark, uneven skin tone. The human body is unable to produce carotenoids, but they can be obtained through diet.

EstheWhite’s key active ingredient, PhytoflORAL® is a patented innovative dietary supplement derived from a proprietary source of non-GMO tomato specie that is rich in colourless carotenoids – phytoene and phytofluene. These specific carotenoids are known to lighten and even out skin tone through

– Inhibiting constitutive melanin synthesis (reducing baseline pigment production)
– Protecting against UVA and UVB rays
– Significantly increasing anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant processes

– They do not bleach nor stain the skin and are truly colourless.

An additional ingredient in EstheWhite is L-Cysteine. It has been shown to prevent the production of darker melanin, stimulate the production of glutathione, promote skin renewal and display anti-oxidant effects.

BENEFITS OF ESTHEWHITE
• Protection against harmful UVA & UVB rays
• Enhanced whitening effect with L-Cysteine, the true precursor of glutathione
• Anti-oxidant & anti-inflammatory properties
• Prevents skin collagen degradation
• Prevents damage to DNA and premature aging of skin
• Skin whitening by reducing melanin production

In a clinical study on effects of colourless carotenoids, dermatologists discovered that 60%-86% of subjects’ skin quality significantly improved after 6 weeks. And up to 90% of the subjects had improvement in skin dryness, roughness, suppleness, evenness and texture after 12 weeks. The research also showed that after 12 weeks of colourless carotenoids intake, 65% of subjects’ skin had a 20% increase in the Minimum Erythemal Dose (MED) after UV exposure testing, characterizing a significant photo- protective effect.

WHY ESTHESHIELD WORKS

(B) Polypodium

EstheShield is an innovative oral sunscreen made with Polypodium Leucotomos, a natural fern extract with long history of usage as herbal oral medicine for the treatment of inflammation and a variety of skin ailments.

Much research has been done on Polypodium Leucotomos on its management of skin conditions and its photo-protective properties. Many of these clinical studies have shown polypodium extracts to be effective at defending skin against damage from the sun (ultraviolet radiation) when taken orally.

Polypodium Leucotomos has both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that help to prevent skin inflammation, inhibit free radicals in skin tissues from causing long-term DNA damage and photo-aging.

BENEFITS OF ESTHESHIELD


• Natural herbal sun screen that comes from deep within

• Inhibition of free radicals from UV radiation
• Anti-oxidant & anti-inflammatory properties
• Prevents oxidative damage of skin
• Prevents damage to DNA and premature aging of skin

Patisserie Atelier’s Dessert Table & Unicorn Cake

Thanks to Patisserie Atelier‘s kind sponsorship of a dessert table and two-tiered Unicorn cake, my niece’s one-year old birthday was a success! Thank you Patisserie Atelierfor putting in the time and effort to set this up. My entire family especially my sister was so happy.

WHAT SETS PATISSERIE ATELIER APART? 

Patisserie Atelier planned the entire table setting and even the decorations for the table! Loved how they made sure the whole decor was in accordance to the Unicorn pink and white theme my sister wanted.

Plus, Patisserie Atelier is extremely good in making fondant decorations. Their fondant  decorations are AMAZING. They can create huge rabbits, unicorn horns and rainbows out of fondant ! I believe they can make anything out of fondant  Plus, a dessert table from Patisserie Atelier is so affordable! It costs only $350 whereas other places charge up to $600 even!

Patisserie Atelier are so prompt in their replies, whether via email, private message which I absolutely love. I have met with other caterers that do not reply promptly and it can be a pain. Patisserie Atelier is so patient to my requests too!

With only a month’s notice, I got everything I ever dreamed of for a dessert table all prepared in simply 2-3 hours. Everyone had high praises for Patisserie Atelier ‘s  deliciously decorated 2-tier 5″/8″ cake with flavours choc truffle and earl grey lavender which is good for up to 30pax.

Flavors wise, you can choose from the flavours available which is quite a variety I thought! I am a huge fan of Patisserie Atelier ‘s earl grey lavender flavour!

What I got from the dessert table good enough for 15-20pax:
20x Vanilla Cupcakes with pink unicorn horn 
20x Yuzu Meringue Tartlets 
20x Strawberry Panna Cotta Shots
5″/8″ 2 tier cake in Unicorn design 

Check out their instagram for more pictures of their gorgeous creations! Thank you Patisserie Atelier for this wonderful set up!

 

 

Malacca with BD LIMOUSINE TRAVEL

When was the last time you guys went to Malacca? For me, that was about 4-5 years ago? That was a long time but anyway things have now changed and it looks so much more developed! It has turned from a family vacation favourite to a youths’ hot spot. Thanks to BD Limousine Travel, I went on a 2D1N trip to Malacca just this week! A perfect start to the week I would say. Thankful for Yixin and the whole BD Limousine Travel group for the wonderful short trip.

So, unlike the usual travel packages around where you have to take the overcrowded and uncomfortable coach to the customs and lug all your bags while queueing at the immensely long queue over at customs, would you fancy getting picked up right at your door step and skip the whole queuing up at customs? I sure do and I know many people who would rather opt for this too!

I got picked up right at my door step by the PR person, tour guide and driver. We reached and crossed over to Malaysia in less than 1 hour?  We had a stopover lunch in JB since we were early. Tried the very famous Taman Pelangi beehoon and dishes. The beehoon was so tasty! The coconut water was fabulous! The meal was overall very appetising. It was the best meal of the trip.

We reached Malacca about in 2-3 hours time and immediately checked in to our hotel. The hotel we were staying for this trip was Hatten Hotel. Hatten Hotel is a new 4 star Luxury Hotel in Melaka City Centre. BD Limousine Travel also do tie ups with Estadia hotel. We almost couldn’t bear to leave the room because it was so luxurious. And for shoppers, you would be happy to know H&M, Jurlique and Braun Buffel (Tim Hoe Wan is also in construction) is within the Hotel itself!

The hotel amenities were wonderful. They had a bar, infinity swimming pool, a spa, hair salon and gym.

After resting for a bit, we met up with the rest to head to Pantai Klebang – the place ideal for taking worthy ootd shots! Yixin and I were overwhelmed with the desert-liked venue that had dunes and a beautiful view. This could be the perfect place for wedding shots. We saw a wedding photo shoot about to take place when we were there.

After exploring a bit and taking fun shots, we went back to the hotel restaurant, Chatterz for Steamboat dinner! Even though nearby our hotel, there were tons of famous food places, we decided to settle with Steamboat for the night because it’s such a rare occasion and so much more fun! Indeed, we had so much fun eating steamboat. The food was fresh and so much variety! You get to choose from an endless selection of sauces, meats, noodles, vegetables, desserts and cooked food. This was by far the most impressive variety I have seen of a Steamboat Buffet. At only RM$50, you can try it when you do not want to head out of the hotel.

After dinner, though we were exhausted we decided to try the very infamous trishaw rides. What’s so special about Malacca trishaw rides is that the trishaw drivers spend a lot of effort in decorating their trishaws into very cute rides. Some like to decorate with Hello Kitty, or Mickey Mouse and even Super Man! Yixin and I chose the Hello Kitty one. At RM$25, its something interesting you can try when you are there. Available in the morning too, I would advise morning rides so you can take better pictures.

Even though some of the places we went this time were touristy spots, BD Limousine do bring you to interesting unique spots that not many people know about. Apparently, there is this very cute home stay that looks like the famous Melbourne Blue Boat House. They could bring you if you are interested!

After we went back at night, Yixin and I got rather hungry and the very nice BD Limousine Group actually went to get us some KFC! So very nice of them.

The next morning, it was extremely difficult to get up. I was sinking too deep into the bed. Eventually, I managed to wake up for the buffet breakfast. The buffet breakfast at Chatterz was good! I love the breakfast as it had eggs and dessert stations. The variety was extensive.

Right after breakfast, it was drizzling but we still went over to Jonker street for sightseeing. Thankful we had a rather pro photographer around to help us take pictures! He’s our driver cum photographer too!

After lunch, we went to do more sightseeing. We first went to the floating mosque. It was the MOST BEAUTIFUL mosque I have ever seen before. It reminds me of BALI’s resorts’ and hotels’ wedding chapels to be honest. For females, it is a must to wear the shawls and tudongs given by them to enter. Yixin and I was not very keen hence the tour guide and driver went on our behalf instead. HAHA and they ended up using our camera to take artsy pictures of themselves instead. It was hilarious. Never before have I travelled with such a fun group! Traveling with them is so fun and lighthearted.

We even went to Upside Down house after that. Look at all the fun pictures we took! This resembles Trick Eye Museum.

After all the fun, we went to  eat the famous chicken rice balls. I did remember being a fan of chicken rice balls when I was younger but somehow the balls were a tad too salty for my liking this time. Yixin however loved them! The entire meal was rather expensive though at RM$70+.

We then went to shop around Dataran Pahlawan. The shopping mall was huge and is ONLY  8 minutes walk away from our hotel.

After that, we went to view the Harbour City (Hatten Hotel’s upcoming theme park/hotel project) showroom flat and it finally came to saying goodbye. The driver brought us back to Singapore and we alighted right at our doorstep. This was indeed a memorable trip. I will definitely visit Malacca again and this time I am going to get BD LIMOUSINE TRAVEL as my travel group.

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

REVIEW – MooJaa Mookata

Hello again!

The weather has been rather insane these days! Some days are so unbearably hot and some days are just so cold! Take today for instance, it has been raining all day that its so cold! If only I can have some Mookata right now!

REVIEW

Anyway, this reminds me! Just the other day I was invited to go down to MooJaa Mookata’s new opening and it was such a great experience. I love MooJaa Mookata’s concept! It is so damn cool that the hot pot is tucked away below the table so that the smoke would not hit you directly. I also like that they have a wide array of sauces for you to choose from (self service). This reminds me of Hai Di Lao and I simply love this concept!

The whole place was kept very clean and the staff was very friendly too! I don’t really like to drink Thai Iced Tea on a whole because I always find it too sweet but the Thai Iced Tea here was not that sweet which is a plus point! They have ala carte and also set meals available. We had the Set Moo recommended for two and it was so filling even though it looks like not much in the beginning! The set comprises of scallops and also prawns at a very reasonable price.

The meat was also very tender and well marinated. I love the chicken so so much!

OVERALL THOUGHTS

I have tried all the flavours and my favourite has to be Chocolate Cornflakes and Strawberry Rice Krispies! The other flavours were yummy too but because I am a strawberry fan, I especially like the Strawberry Rice Krispies flavoured one. I ate finish the whole box of Strawberry Krispies by myself and my family was very receptive to the cereals too! We finished 2 boxes in just 2 days! I think this is the perfect gift for CNY and will always be welcomed by your friends because they are so pretty yet have the lowest calories.
