the weekend escapade

Just a couple of hours left.

Have a great weekend everyone! Expect a massive clothes update when I return!


party like a king

Picturesque view from the top, and we’re truly intoxicated. Pretty sure by now you’re wondering where’s this place.

DSC01702b

Rooftop party by the poolside, Guest DJ Andrew T, Free-flow champagne, Gold Diggers couldn’t get any better than this!

DSC01701b

DSC01707b

If you’re partying with Olivier, needless to say, it’s always done Hollywood Style!

DSC01755b

DSC01810b

DSC01792b

DSC01793b

Someone’s an extreme hater of spiders, and what’s he gonna do when faced with a gigantic one? Having to act macho whilst posing with it must have been extremely heroic!

DSC01799b

DSC01852b

DSC01759b

DSC01820b

To think with Halloween over, we’d have no more costumes to spot till a year later. Themed parties are proven to be way more fun!

DSC01757b

DSC01853b

DSC01873b

DSC01837b

Funny how I totally abstained from champagne today, nevertheless I’m very impressed with myself! You could have fun too without alcohol and it makes people-watching all the more interesting!

DSC01801b

DSC01876b

DSC01807b

Happy Birthday Olivier!

At the strike of twelve, we took the party to Butter Factory.

DSC01902b

DSC01915b

DSC01907b

DSC01900b

Too much butter for the week! This weekend’s gonna be totally smashing, I’m sure of it!

DSC01928b

DSC01919b

Time to pack for my weekend escapade!


let’s get buttered

Mandarin Oriental with Craig after what seemed like a million years. This time round, we skipped Mortons for some Japanese Bistro.

DSC01025b

DSC01012b

DSC00992b

Lucky for Craig, I was not fashionably late because he gave me a fake timing. Seems like my friends are learning fast at tricking me to arrive on time!

DSC01002b

DSC01001b

DSC00999b

The beef was exceptionally good & silly me never knew how tasty rainbow rolls were till today. Besides, it’s funny how we sat through dinner pretty much wasted. Not surprising for a sake fanatic like me.

DSC01016b

DSC01021b

DSC01017b

And my favourite part? The transferring of food from other restaurants! Desserts are always delish, better gobble them up whilst babyvell does a toilet break. Thanks again Craig for the fabolous dinner, 700 bucks is no joke!

DSC01031b

DSC01038b

DSC01039b

DSC01055b

Encountered an amazingly hyperactive baby who attempted kungfu moves with me! So hard to keep me away from uber pinchable cheeks!

Butter up next.

DSC01089b

DSC01061b

DSC01077b

DSC01083b

DSC01086b

DSC01144b

Familiar faces aplenty, there’s nothing better than that! But I’m still craving Jakarta, this weekend shall be it!

Ps, if you’re interested in my outfit, send your enquiries to agri@agrivelt.com .


you only live once

A random walk with the babyboy last year enabled us to stumble upon our favourite eatery. And now, I’ve been going back frequently with a couple of friends, and each day I have them bugging me to take them over & over again.

DSC00700b

Nothing goes beyond a dollar fifty for a stick here, and the maximum never goes beyond three bucks for a fish. How rare for such pricing these days!

DSC00702b

DSC00706b

These kitties have been around for a year now, we’ve practically watched them grow. Whoever said kitties aren’t capable of recognizing familiar faces, okay not these two at least!

Okay, let me give you a clue where this place is roughly situated!

DSC00716b

DSC00698b

I’m not shy to admit I have the worst diet regime. Doesn’t it bother you to have mathematical calculations on food you’re consuming, e.g the amount of calories etc.? Nutrionists must really hate me!

Too preoccupied with eating, never managed shots of juicy corns & multiple servings of the same platter. Then again, I’m never really full. My stomach is truly a bottomless pit.

DSC00731b

DSC00728b

After all, my passion for food was what brought the babyboy & I together.


[ADV] Pink Parlour

My first experience at Pink Parlour was so good I have to share it with all of you. When you mention Brazillian waxing, you want it to be a fuss-free & squeaky clean affair.

DSC00896a

Being here sets you in a romantic mood instantly, especially with the dim lightings, candles & cozy beds.

DSC00880b

DSC00878b

A quick shower later, I changed into my bath robe. Pink Parlour does have shower facilities, not very common in other regular salons pre wax. Another thumbs up for that!

DSC00879a

All you die-hard romantics would be excited to know that Pink Parlour has a couple room for the ultimate waxing experience, that’s if you’re adventurous enough.

DSC00900b

DSC00869b

I’m not gonna lie and say it was totally pain-free, but really the pain goes away in a split second. Pink Parlour uses only hard wax for Brazillian waxing. And having Wendy as my therapist has got to be the best thing ever. She made small chats with me to make the process least awkward as possible.

DSC00884a

Also, if you’re prone to having ingrowns, bump eraiser might just be the perfect solution for you. Just two weeks into using it, you’d notice visible results.

DSC00890b

DSC00891b

And it’s true when they say ‘Once you visit Pink Parlour, there’s no other place you want to be at.’

Guess what girls?

PP_Brazilian_Ad5

Come celebrate Pink Parlour’s 4th Anniversary Party together with me 21st November at Far East Plaza.

Mark your calendars already today!

Trust me, you don’t wanna be missing out on this $8 hair free party!


jakarta part four

Today’s breakkie.

DSC00395b

DSC00404b

DSC00407b

DSC00405b

Someone’s craving for piping hot soup, and she regarded no steam as failure. Babyvell went easy on the sushi & my burger cravings just got insane. Oh well, they’re mini anyway!

Followed by the long-awaited French massage, which rids water retention effectively!

DSC00154b

Passed out for a good ol’ two hours, before heading to Grand Indonesia. Everyone had their doubts initially, but trust me, these are actual restaurants. I wished we had better decor for restaurants here.

DSC00073b

DSC00069b

DSC00072b

Blowfish round two- partying here is truly sensational.

DSC00194b

DSC00171b

DSC00178b

DSC00227b

DSC00213b

DSC00242b

Too many jaggerbombs, it’s not surprising at all though. Someone here apparently has been awake for 48 hours straight.

Late night supper/ Early breakfast

DSC00249b

DSC00135b

We’re gonna miss laughing hysterically over ice-cream & in the wee hours of the morning.


the strike of midnight

This year’s Halloween over at Supperclub.

DSC01474b

DSC01443b

DSC01517b

DSC01513b

Did some last-minute shopping and ended up eight hours in two malls, that was truly insane. Truth is, we couldn’t really decide what we’re gonna go as and ended up buying the redundant.

DSC01555b

DSC01311b

DSC01419b

DSC01516b

Halfway through partying, hunger hit me so bad. To everyone’s astonishment, I actually fled to Macs for a supersized meal-a milkshake, a chocolate fudge, a large fries & two burgers.

DSC01362b

DSC01479b

DSC01521b

DSC01530b

Too preocuppied with our champagnes & baileys, I didn’t manage gazillion shots with random strangers dressed in outrageous costumes. Oh what a shame!

DSC01447b

DSC01546b

DSC01391b

DSC01518b

Tonight was such a blast, if only we could play dress-up everyday! And someone remind me to lay off jaggerbombs next time please! It’s one of the highest contribution towards my hyperactivity till noon.

DSC01595b

DSC01550b

DSC01608b

DSC01618b

Experience for yourself how Supperclub’s like-there’s a reason why we keep coming back!


shimmering & splendid

Massive dinner over at Yumeya with Nira.

DSC00758b

DSC00754b

DSC00762b

DSC00765b

DSC00760b

Was never quite crazed over Gyu Enoki till babyboy put it in his list of must-haves! However, our favourite has gotta be the scallop. So awesome we couldn’t say no to a third serving! For anyone who hasn’t attempted Yumeya yet, you’re missing out.

DSC00787b

DSC00792b

Haven’t done this in the longest time, boy do we miss eating excessively together! Never underestimate the skinniest frames, sometimes their overwhelming appetite gets scary.

Ended up doing Zouk eventually.

DSC00824b

DSC00822b

Maybe Jakarta was too awesome, I’m not exactly feeling too hyped over partying here anymore. Or maybe I’m simply registering the absence of the other half. Either way, five months later we’d reunite.


jakarta part three

I have the weirdest habits, which includes breakkies at 545am. Besides, who could resist hotel breakkies which has anything & everything?

DSC00390b

DSC00392b

DSC00393b

DSC00406b

Feeling all famished now, after an entire night of partying, we’re all ready to finally get some shut-eye. i think?

DSC00411b

DSC00429b

Wide awake now for a full 24 hours, someone explain why the sleepy hasn’t made its way to us yet?

********

Fast forward to the evening- Lioni & Eddy’s wedding.

DSC00528b

DSC00444b

DSC00561b

DSC00527b

The decorations were so beautiful, filled with floral fantasies. Even someone as aloof as me can’t help but smile in delight. The bride was at her most enchanting moment in her ball gown & the groom was equally ravishing in his suit.

DSC00445b

DSC00446b

DSC00447b

DSC00549b

Wedding portraits, dress fittings, food tastings, rose petals, fabolous song selection & amazing colour scheme, all these months of efforts definitely paid off.

DSC00454b

DSC00555a

DSC00458b

DSC00489b

We’re all as elated as the bride, in fact we’ve gone pretty drastic to actually travel to jakarta specially for her big night. Not like an hour’s flight is a biggie, but seriously, if we didn’t love the person enough, we wouldn’t even go to such extremes.

DSC00034b

DSC00465b

Congratulations my Lioni Putri dearest!


let’s get it on tonight

days of our lives.

[ADV] Twinkle Nailz

My not-so-important nails have decided to attempt a virgin makeover with Jenny at Twinkle Nailz. For someone who’s a no go towards even classic manicure, imagine how my pals would react to this drastic move. Acrylic glitter extension, you got it right!

DSC00918a

Picking a favourite colour was harder than I imagined! Jenny had a wide array of selection I was literally spoilt for choice. One minute, I wanted blue, another minute, I wanted black, but never once did Jenny blew her top. Sitting through this four hours straight was nowhere near monotonous, not with her sense of humor and positive nature.

DSC01186a


And to think I used to cringe at the thought of having a manicure, look at me now! It’s going to be hard to stop at one once you have started! Beautiful nails are no longer out of reach, they can become your reality, just like mine.

As my reader, you get to enjoy :

1) $20.00 off Acrylic Glitter extension

2) $5.00 off Classic Manicure and Classic Pedicure (U.P$42.00)

jakarta part two

Headed to Shangri-la straightaway, jams here are quite a killer, lucky we managed to nap along the way. Each time we’re here, our schedule’s so packed sleeping an hour is considered luxury.

DSC00410b

DSC00152b

Wasted no time in having scrumptious food, alley foods are my absolute favourite. I even got fried banana fritters fifty cents for a huge pack. The dirtier and oilier, the better.

DSC00066b

DSC00597b

DSC00613b

Dragonfly & Blowfish afterwards.

DSC00084b

DSC00122b

DSC00089b

DSC00128b

Twelve Jaggerbombs later & so wide awake. And we thought we partied crazy in Singapore already, boy were we wrong!


jakarta part one

My pre-flight habit consists of starbucks & o’briens. Honestly though my groggiest moment’s during noon-time, so morning flights were never really a problem for me.

DSC00041b

DSC00039b

My fifth encounter with Sour Sally by now, why don’t they have this already in Singapore? Expect long queues though before you get to devour a piece of it! I’ve even gotten bubbles so hooked onto it, it’s all we ever think about when we’re here.

DSC00048b

DSC00052b

Can’t really decide which flavour you desire? If like me, an incredible appetite is what you have, just devour all three at once!

DSC00045b

DSC00055b

Oh my goodness, what are we to do if not for Sour Sally?


[ADV] SkinLab Medical Spa

After hearing so much hype about the Gentle Exfoliative Milk Peel, I decided to give it a shot at SkinLab. Highly raved by Simply Her & Cita Bella, this peel is better known as SkinLab Signature Facial Treatment. It is sutable for all skin types, from oily acne to dry, aging. Too many late nights has left my skin feeling dehydrated & lifeless, it’s time to do something about it.

SkinLab_logo

DSC00864b

SkinLab Medical Spa is the culmination of the vision, dynamism and expertise of our in-house doctor: Dr Kelvin Chua, who wanted to integrate the pampering, attentive yet unobtrusive service of a world class spa with the most advanced, non-invasive medical techniques to provide effective beauty solution to treat mind, body and soul.

DSC00847b

DSC00835b

So what is this milk peel all about?

This 90-min treatment combines the nourishing, healing properties of milk, together with a concentrate of milk lactate that helps loosen dead skin and debris. Clinical trials have found it to be effective in absorbing environmental pollutants and toxins, including excess sebum, whilst the milk component helps maintain the skin’s hydration.

Aside from lying on a heater bed, I was provided with thick comforters to battle the cold. The head massage was therapeutic enough for me to doze off smiling. Despite this treatment being extremely gentle, it’s very effective in showing results in just one session.You have to try it to believe it!
