Spread the Christmas Joy with OSIM Gift Sets from $68!

It is less than 3 weeks before Christmas and have you done your shopping yet? If you haven’t, it is never too late but I think you need to start ASAP! Being the very “Kiasu” type, I have already prepared my gifts and do you wonder where I got them from? I am proud to say I got them at a steal over at OSIM!

uLove XMAS17_R04

Why not give the gift of health to your loved ones this year to show that you care? Do you know OSIM’s Gift Sets starts from $68 – 2 for $68, $98 and $168? I believe there’s bound to be something for anyone and everyone!

XMAS17 SET $98 B

XMAS17 SET $168 B

For my dad, I would probably go with the $68 gift bundle that has both the  uSnooz Neck Pillow & uMask Eye Massager. He travels often and like to nap on the couch, I thought these gifts would be perfect for him! The uSnooz Neck Pillow would be a nice gift for my dad as he always complains of having a stiff neck while the  uMask Eye Massager can help to relax his tired eyes since he is always looking at documents or on the road for hours.

As for my mom, I would go with these picks from the $98 bundle – uSnooz Massage Wrap & uVision Eye Massager as she’s always staring at accounting data or at the TV screen. I believe she would love some pampering while watching the TV or working.

I would gift my sister, who has recently started her own family the uMist Dream Humidifier & uPure 2 Water Purifier from the $168 bundle as I believe, you are what you breathe and drink. I would love my nieces to have clean, purified water and air as its better for them growing up and I could grant them with better sleep, healthier skin and fresher water with this divine combo. Good for detox while you intox. I even doubled it up as Christmas and housewarming gifts. uMist Dream would be a good baby shower and christmas gift as it allows babies to sleep better while uPure 2 would be good for those who usually drink from the tap.

For my grandparents, I thought I would gift them the uStiletto Leg Massager and uJolly Full Back Massager as they are always suffering from aching back and legs.

Other than my family and friends, who else am I missing? I guess I can always gift myself since it is Christmas right? I sleep with the air-con at night, so my skin feels very dry.. that’s the reason why I got myself the OSIM uMist Dream Humidifier, say hello to cleaner air J Since I travel quite often for work, I got my hands on the OSIM uSnooz Neck Massage Wrap as well, to ease those nasty neck aches during the long flights.

As the festive period is approaching, I am sure everyone wants to look beautiful and that includes me too! Wish to achieve a v-shaped face, & better hair growth this Christmas? I have something to share with you which make perfect gifts for your love ones too!

Recently I got to try OSIM’s latest Beauty Massager uGem 2 & Salon-style Scalp Massager, uScalp and I really love the effects of the massagers which is why I chose to share with you guys!

IMG_6572

Besides the beauty and health benefits which I will share later, the best thing I love about the massagers would be how lightweight and portable they are. The design is also sleek and compact making it ideal for travel and bringing them everywhere. Plus they are so affordable, going at only $99 each (UP $149) making them ideal and thoughtful gifts for your loved ones (family, colleagues, friends) or vain girlfriends.

Comes with a battery too.

So back to the wonderful massage functions of this handy beauty device that will help bring out a sculpted v-shaped face and a gorgeous glow, you can get a firmer v-shaped face in just 5-10mins a day with this massager. Use it daily with your favourite moisturiser or cream before bedtime and you will no longer feel inferior of your round face or saggy skin! You can stop standing behind your friends when taking photos. Beauty apps to edit and “slim” your face in the photos are also not needed anymore!

IMG_6364

What I love about it is that it is perfect for achieving the V-shaped face any girl would die for without surgery. You can get rid of the water retention and puffy face you have in the morning. Eye bags are visibly reduced and wrinkles & fine lines are smoothened out too! Best of all, it relieves headaches and fights signs of aging: sagging face, water retention, droopy eyes or dark circles, dull skin complexion. To find out more about the benefits, you can check out their Christmas brochure!

Besides the face, I believe girls are also concerned about their hair! Say yes to beautiful and shinier air with uScalp. Treat your love ones who take care of their luscious locks to a salon-style scalp massage anytime. With a multi-dimensional scrubbing action, it mimics the fingers of a hair professional to enhance blood circulation – great for achieving healthy & beautiful hair. The scalp massage that you look forward to at the salon can now be experienced at the comfort of your home. Besides if you have hair problems like thinning hair or hair loss, this is definitely for you. I passed it to my dad who is experiencing hair loss and he swears by it. Yes, you can also get this for men! Not only does it increase circulation to promote hair growth, it strengthens hair roots for healthier hair and relieves stress, tension & headache relaxing the mind & body and improving sleep quality. To find out more about the benefits, you can check out their Christmas brochure!

IMG_6400

Due to my hectic lifestyle and being in the F&B line, it is important to get frequent massages as I tend to return home with aching legs and body. The health benefits of a massage are amazing and massage is a way to pamper yourself if you do not have time to head to the salon or spa.

IMG_6417
Besides massaging the hair, you can also massage your neck and back.

If say beauty gadgets aren’t ideal for a certain loved one, say for example you don’t think your parents would require them, you can still check out other products from OSIM as I know I can always count on OSIM for the perfect gift. Recently, I got to try out the uJolly and uStiletto and I passed these massagers to my parents as I think they would love them and the best part, I can always get to use it whenever I feel like it since I stay with my parents.

IMG_6432

With that said, this is the end of my review. Hope this helps and merry christmas in advance!

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

Juice Cleansing With Antidote!

So recently I thought I needed to shed some weight as I gained quite a bit over the festive periods hence when I discovered Antidote –  a juice cleanse programme , I knew I had to try it. I have tried a couple of juice fasts before and they have worked perfectly well for me so I was more than ready for this.

There are five types of cleanse to choose from – Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced, Master and Active cleanse. And you can also choose from 1, 3, 5, 7, and 10 day cleanse.

I went for the 5 day Master Cleanse which is a 100% vegetable cleanse that washes your system with nothing but pure nutrition.

I allowed  a couple of friends to try out the juice and they actually LOVED IT (yes, even guys)! The taste was more of an interesting one to me. I liked that when I drank it, it made me feel healthy, clean and refreshed all at the same time however the taste probably took me some time to get used to it. Thank goodness for the beetroot juice and almond nut milk that made it better! The juice texture was smooth and tasted quite nice after getting used to.

The first day was ok but by the third day, I got rather uneasy and wanted to eat and munch something. I did try not to eat anything and only resorted to drinking soup when I needed something savoury. Each day comprises of 6 bottles of juice. Each bottle is titled with the number, name and ingredients of the juice. Find out more information on each bottle below:

1 – Mt. Fuji (Skin Hydration) :: Japanese Cucumber, Romaine, Spinach


2 – Crater Lake (Body Recovery) :: Pure Coconut Water, Japanese Cucumber, Romaine, Mint, Parsley, Lemon


3 – Mount Eden (Body Detox) :: Japanese Cucumber, Celery, Romaine, Mint, Parsley, Lemon, Ginger
4 – Mount Eden (Body Detox) :: Japanese Cucumber, Celery, Romaine, Mint, Parsley, Lemon, Ginger


5 – Angel Falls (Liver Cleanse) :: Carrot, Beetroot, Lemon, Coconut Oil, Ginger


6 – Original Almond Milk (Heart Health) :: Raw Almonds, Alkaline Water

On the 3rd day of a 3-5 Day Cleanse, the 5th drink will be replaced with –

5 – Charcoal Coconut (Toxin Absorbing) :: Activated Charcoal, Pure Coconut Water, Lemon

I lost about 2-3kg after the entire cleanse and am already thinking of trying out more! If you are new to juice fasting, you might want to try out the beginner cleanse however if you think you are up for a challenge, why not go straight for the Master Cleanse like I did? You might be in for a treat! Order through here.

Pretty Summer Feet with Allpresan Pro FootCare

 

Summertime is here. Do your nails need a makeover? We’ve got the inside skinny on getting your nails into tiptop shape. Summertime means lots of outdoor activities and open-toed shoes. Neglected feet and unkempt toes are not a pretty sight.

To help your feet get summer ready, here are 3 easy ways to pamper your own feet:

1. DIY PAMPERING – It is not necessary to blow money on salon pedicures. Now everything can be DIY-ed. Why not opt for a home pedi?  Soak your feet in lukewarm water to soften your nails. Dig any dirt out from under your nails and clip away your nails before filing. Apply a layer of base coat to prevent yellowing and finish off with a top coat.

2. BOLD POLISH COLORS – You can afford to go funky this sumer! These trendy Creative Play Minis are perfect to bring on any vacation so you can always be summer nail ready. Change your nail colour easily.

4. Weather changes especially like the dry season of summer, expect few patches of dry skin. The easiest way to soften these rough patches is by first, soaking your feet in warm water and exfoliating to remove the extra dry skin. After you towel dry your feet, rub a lotion or a medical foot care (e.g. Allpresan Pro Footcare for Cracked Skin) exclusively for foot care purposes over the dry patches of your feet to allow your skin to re-absorb moisture.

the holy grail of foot care!

I wished I was introduced to the brand Allpresan earlier.  The first foot care product to be tested according to pharmaceutical standards, the Allpresan® PRO Footcare has been shown to optimize the skin condition and skin moisture.

Comes in a hygienic pump system

Allpresan® PRO Footcare is equipped with BarrioExpert® LIPO2 Skin Repair Technology. The basis of BarrioExpert® LIPO2 Skin Repair Technology is imitation of the structures in the skin barrier by skin- related lipids which arrange themselves in typical double layers just like natural lipids. All you need is 1.5cm-3cm of mousse each usage. The mousse like texture glides on smoothly making it easy to apply.

pump about 1.5cm to 3cm of mousse

The range has shown significant results.  Allpresan® PRO Footcare fills the gaps in the lipid film of the skin barrier after only 2 weeks of application. When Allpresan® PRO Footcare has been used for 4 weeks, the amount of lipids in the lipid matrix corresponds to the normal level of healthy skin!

We can now achieve healthy skin barrier after 4 weeks of using  Allpresan® PRO Footcare. I like how this improves eczema and targets several important issues like dry rough skin, sweaty feet, anti fungal protection, foot deodorant and shoe deodorant. They have other products for the feet such as  foot bath concentrate and the products comes in mousse and cream versions.

PERSONAL EXPERIENCE AND THOUGHTS

I have went for teeth whitening at aesthetic clinics before and boy was it a hassle! The process was tedious, long and uncomfortable. The process took about 45 minutes but it was very uncomfortable as I had to put the device and tool inside for the entire 45 minutes which didn’t felt good and wasn’t worth it I guess.

Love that this kit provides so much convenience and makes the perfect travel kit! I love how easy it is to use and how effective the product is.

Keomax Sonic Electric Toothbrush Review


Most people neglect the importance of oral hygiene and keeping their teeth sparkly clean and breath fresh.  Even though most of us have been brushing our teeth for most of our lives,but  are we really brushing properly? The importance of brushing teeth properly is often overlooked by many of us!

I used to own a manual toothbrush and even though its not too bad, I had always wanted to get an electric toothbrush but they are too EXPENSIVE! So can you imagine my happiness when I got hold of my first #Keomax Series 7 PowerSonic Electric Toothbrush? Keomax Sonic Electric Toothbrush bristles are so soft! And I love that it comes with a refill too. At least I can use it for 6 months to a year! You are recommended to replace the brush head every every 3 months recommended by dentist!

An advanced technology electric toothbrush with an intelligent brushing system that vibrates up to 48,000 strokes per minutes, it removes plaque 7times cleaner than a manual toothbrush and gives healthier, stronger and whiter teeth in 2 weeks with great value for money and inexpensive brush head refills (only $2.45/pc). Why spend a crazy amount of dollars on another brand of toothbrush when you get a value for money Keomax Sonic Electric Toothbrush that performs the same or even better than other brands out there?

I bring it along whenever I travel too! Love how convenient it is to bring it around.

So what’s the real deal of using an electric toothbrush like Keomax Sonic Electric Toothbrush? Just like facial cleansing devices, electric toothbrushes works the same way, it win hands down over manual brushes when it comes to cleaning ability removing plague 7times better. It comes with various cleansing modes which keeps you from brushing too hard. It has a built-in 2 minutes auto timer to ensure you brush the proper amount of time.

OSIM uLove 白马王子 Massage Chair Experience

Have you ever dreamt of having a 白马王子 when you were younger? Well, I have always dreamt of this ever since I was a child while listening to fairy tales therefore I am really excited to tell you that the new OSIM uLove fulfilled my childhood dream and I will tell you more below!

A maker of luxury massage chairs, OSIM had their uLove private event at their HQ a few nights ago and I was one of the lucky attendees to be invited where I had one of the most amazing experiences ever which I will elaborate on later. Beautifully decorated with flower petals, a lovely dessert table and cocktail bar serving customized drinks awaits us invitees. Felt right at home with familiar faces around me. We were early hence we had a good time chatting and mingling around with canapés.

We were first ushered by our personalized chaperones into the Experience Zone where we were seated in our individual OSIM uLove massage chair in a dark scented room which was really dark to keep us in suspense how OSIM uLove 白马王子 looked like.

While seated, we were asked to place our feet into the socks attached to the leg rest. My family previously owned an older OSIM model and I remember at that time, there were no socks pockets so I am glad there is one now because it keeps my feet warm and cosy. Our chaperones then adjusted the inclination and strength for us accordingly. Due to the intelligent features OSIM uLove was equipped with, the strength was just right. I have lower back and feet issues so I found that it targeted correctly at the sore spots that needed massage badly. This was all I needed after a long day! Thanks to the Immersive Audio System, I was serenaded with alluring music and was quickly put into full relaxation mode. I slept through the massage and that’s how relaxing it is! This is my favourite feature of the OSIM uLove because it allows me to play my favourite songs on a smartphone or iPod. The Experience Zone was the main highlight for me as I finally had my muscles relieved after a long day of activities. Just like how I imagined my 白马王子would be like – a prince that arrives just in time to rescue his damsel in distress, the OSIM uLove fulfilled this dream of mine. It saved me from sore muscles haha!

I enjoyed how realistic the massage felt thanks to the V-Hand Massage technology that emulates an agile hand-grip of a professional masseuse, producing a realistic massage grip that is adept at extracting deep seated knots. To ensure the smoothest and most pleasurable massage, the 720o Roller Balls can rotate 360 degrees in both horizontal and vertical directions and intimately roll along every contour of your body. You can also customise your Massage Intensities to maximise enjoyment, precision and effectiveness. The OSIM uLove features a Long-Track Massage feature where it extends to the buttock areas to soothe and relax muscles stiffened from prolonged sitting. This is my other favourite feature because I sit quite a lot during the day so this helps to soothe my lower back which have suffered due to my poor sitting posture.

Another plus point, the OSIM uLove massage chair presents a suite of massage programs, professionally designed and tailored to satisfy the diverse needs of the whole family leaving you spoilt for choices! Like an ala-carte menu in a spa, you get first-class service in the comfort of your home. See below for the menu. If the existing massage programs are not to your liking, you can also download New Massage Programs simply with a Bluetooth connection to a smartphone.

After experiencing the Experience Zone, we toured around the Lifestyle Zone where we were further introduced to OSIM uLove. We got to understand more about the functionalities in depth. Here’s where all the pictures comes in!

The OSIM uLove performs Intelligent Auto Shoulder Detection activated at the start of every automatic massage program. The shoulder detection feature would access our unique physical build, ensuring that we benefit from the full curative effects of the personalised massage.

You can even activate the Extendible Foot Massager that can be customisable to the user’s unique height, providing an even more personalised massage all the way to the toes! For greater convenience, the uLove understands your massage needs and recalls your preferred massage settings for up to 3 different users. You can save up to 4 of your Favourite Massage Programs to appear on the top of the programme list for quicker selection and easier navigation. It also comes equipped with Comprehensive Safety Features ensuring the safety of your family-friends. The backrest will stop reclining upon detection of any object in its path and the footrest will also stop retracting when it senses any obstruction underneath it. With the One-Touch Chair Position, adjust to your desired chair positioning, using just one-touch. To ensure you feel cosy, Soothing Warm Air on the back prepares your body to loosen stiff muscles and joints. Unlike other massage chairs, which are strapped with remote control cables, OSIM uLove’s unique selling point lies with the fact that it has a retractable remote control that is  neatly tucked within a hidden panel. The remote control operates the intensity of a massage and streams music through the chair’s superior speakers.

Luxurious and majestic in design, the main body of the uLove is upholstered in quilted and modern weave inspired leatherette. Thoughtfully designed with retractable remote control and optimally positioned speakers, this makes OSIM uLove the perfect luxe addition to any home. It comes in an array of premium intense hues – Dreamy White, Handsome Brown, Charming Red, Dashing Copper and Gorgeous Teal, all with the same Handsome Design for you to choose from!

After having our pictures taken, we were given the big reveal! Finally, we see the 白马王子, well raved by OSIM’s uLove ambassador, Fan Bing Bing. It was a nice surprise! It really resembles a knight in shining armour like how I would imagine my 白马王子 to look like!

The OSIM uLove retails at a Special Price of $5,499 (UP $5,999) & will be exclusively available at the following:

ADVERT – SUFOOD

Had an opportunity the other day to attend a food tasting at Sufood, a new Italian-inspired meatless dining concept in Singapore, hailing from Taiwan’s largest restaurant chain operator WOWPRIME in a joint venture with local PUTIEN. Thank you, Yilun (brand executive of PUTIEN) and K.C. (manager of Sufood Raffles City) for hosting us. It was such a wonderful experience trying out my first Vegetarian Italian-inspired meal in a restaurant.

BACKGROUND STORY ON SUFOOD

Founded in 2010, SUFOOD is the first meat-free concept restaurant under WOWPRIME GROUP, the largest F&B operator in Taiwan. Through a joint venture, SUFOOD launched in Singapore for the very first time at Raffles City in May 2014.

The casual 140-seat veggie diner is SUFOOD’s first outlet outside of Taiwan. Focusing on freshness of ingredients and a clean-tasting palate, SUFOOD’s menu features more than 200 ingredients. Set menus are affordable at S$29.80++ for a full eight- course meal.

To commemorate the launch, SUFOOD set a new Guinness World Record® for most pizzas made in 12 hours, achieving a record of 3,574 pizzas. The event raised $12,015.50 with
all proceeds going towards Pink Ribbon Walk, a walk against breast cancer organised by the Breast Cancer Foundation.

SUFOOD is not only inspired by Italian cuisine but also by how it is prepared; though only using basic cooking techniques, Italian cuisine still exudes diverse and rich flavours. SUFOOD thus relies chiefly on the quality of the fresh ingredients to create innovative and delicious meat-free cuisines.

Their manifesto of using the rule of five:

5-colour groups of vegetables & fruits to give you a variety of nutrients

DISCOUNTS

Currently, they have an ongoing 1-for-1 DBS/POSB card promotion for their set meal (S$29.80). However, I can assure you even without the promotion, this place is worth trying! Even the crowd agrees with me! The picture below was taken before the promotion timeframe. The promotion is valid daily from 2pm – 4:30pm (last order at 3pm).

REVIEW

When I go to a restaurant, I usually look out for two things and they are, 1. customer service and 2. food quality & taste.

For SUFOOD, I would give them a thumbs up for both areas because they are excellent in the customer service aspect due to having made their staff go through training in Taiwan previously. From what I understand from Yilun, in Taiwan, service expectations are much higher as compared to Singapore hence, the necessity of receiving training in Taiwan beforehand. You can expect quality customer service here at SUFOOD.

Additionally, besides the impeccable customer service, their food quality and taste is also amazing. My favourites has to be the Star Pizza and Baked Potato Al Fungi. I am drooling just looking at the pictures again. I find that at only S$29.80, this 8-course set meal is truly value for money. A plate of vegetarian meal in the hawkers would probably cost S$4 and you must take into consideration that the S$4 comes with no customer service nor a great ambience for you to enjoy with your love ones while Sufood is a wonderful place for you to have a great and nutritious meal with your family at a very small cost. To me, I would rather spend a couple more dollars to have the food served to me, and also have a cosy setting to enjoy my meal.

Event – Huang Ah Ma, The Oriental Spa Chamber Media invite

Hi pretties,

Back with another interesting update! Last week, my girlfriend and I attended the media invite for Huang Ah Ma, the Oriental Spa Chamber and we had a great time learning about the benefits of the facial and spa regimen Huang Ah Ma offers. We were so delighted to find out we could get a 90 min complimentary try out of this regimen. Apparently, this is Singapore’s first ever late night spa and facial regimen for good health which is also otherwise known as the Imperial Night Beauty Secret Spa & Facial.

EVENT HIGHLIGHTS

For the first part of the event, we were greeted with their signature ginger tea that is very good for the women’s body. I like to drink ginger tea whenever I have the period because it helps soothe my tummy cramps. After that, we were given a rejuvenating foot soak which was filled with boiling water. Not very used to soaking my feet in boiling water, I had a difficult time soaking my feet in because the water was too hot! However, after hearing how it helps in blood circulation, I took the plunge.

At the event, the techniques of the massage were demonstrated to us. After the demonstration, we went on a guided tour around the place and boy, was the place huge! There were several couple and single rooms. There are even saunas inside the place.

dsc02406dsc02410 dsc02412  dsc02415 dsc02417 dsc02418After the whole event, they gave us a taste of how good their massage was with a 5 mins head massage and also offered us bowls of tasty porridge cooked by the speaker herself. I have forgotten the chinese name for it but apparently it is called the 8 treasures porridge if I am not wrong.

A LITTLE INFORMATION ON THE MASSAGE

This unique imperial Night Beauty Secret Spa & Facial promises to help one relax fully after a long day, help with insomnia and aid in promoting good health at the same time. From what I learnt in this event, the perfect beauty sleep timing is actually from 10pm to 2am and this massage aims to help you enjoy that little hours of beauty sleep!

The routine centres around the introduction of special herb blends and crafted massage techniques to enhance cell recovery and rejuvenation, which works best at night.

The late night spa and facial routine starts with a foot spa, inspired by a simple but powerful therapy, the bath routine of the Yao Tribe women. The Yao Tribe can be found in the mountainous terrains of the southwest and south China, and the women are known to lead lives that are free from sickness and ailments. Possessing a strong constitution, the Yao women can go about their daily activities immediately after giving birth.

dsc02710 dsc02714group_foot_massage

The herbs used are speranskia, acacia, turmeric and a mix of rare Yunnan herbs. These herbs help with problems like insomnia. The herbs open pores and in turn help the skin reap the full medicinal benefits of the herbs. they also aid in enhancing blood circulation and overall well-being. The Yao bath can also accelerate sweating enable you to expel the toxins in your body.

Now, at Huang Ah Ma, you can enjoy the health benefits of this concoction of herbs, and more. The eight-step relaxing spa and facial regimen includes the following:

  • “Yao Yu” Foot Soak (瑶浴), as outlined above
  • Back Massage to help relax the body
  • Artemisia Herbs (艾草) Detox and Ear Candling: Artemisia herbs are placed on the navel, helping you to relax. This step will also detox and clear the meridian. When your body pores are open and the 12 meridian blockages are cleared, harmful materials can be expelled. The multitude of benefits includes skin nourishment, relief of itching as well as prevention and curing of skin and gynaecological diseases. The step will also improve the micro-circulation system, digestion and alleviate problems like fatigue and muscle pain.

  • Musical Ball Face Massage: This massage will whisk you away to a state of tranquillity. The moving steel balls produce a soft tinkling sound. The therapist will execute four strokes in this order, for the ultimate relaxation: 1) Effleurage stroke – A soothing, stroking movement used at the beginning of the facial to encourage lymphatic return 2) Drainage stroke – Lymphatic stimulation and drainage 3) Soothing stroke – Relax the muscle and skin 4) Shiatsu pressure – Reduce the pressure stress and mental stress
  • Custom Blended Mask: This soothing chiffon aloe mask is suitable for all skin types. It nourishes and relaxes the skin.

This 90-minute treatment, the “Imperial Night Beauty Secret Spa & Facial”, has an introductory price of $88 (UP: $188). It is offered at Huang Ah Ma starting 4 Feburary 2015 onwards.

This treatment is recommended to be experienced from 7pm onwards as the regime is put together to suit one’s skin condition and temperature at night.

Due to the herbs and massages, it is not recommended for pregnant ladies and those suffering from cancer.

OVERALL THOUGHTS ON THE MASSAGE

So I went with my friend and she was raving about how awesome the massage was and also how beneficial it was to her. She slept like a baby the moment she reached home. During the massage, we managed to fell asleep during the Musical ball massage. It was very soothing and painless for those who worry about how facial massages feels like. My skin felt very smooth after the whole thing too and both of us thought our skin glowed! I guess it was because of the enzyme facial peel. If you ask me, this is value for money for those who suffer from insomnia! I would pay anything to get good health and ample rest.

Thank you for your invite, Natasha and Vanessa.

Hope this helps and thank you for reading guys!
