Japanese Hair Spa at Essensuals Bugis

Back at Essensuals Bugis where it feels like home to get yet another Japanese Hair Spa Treatment done to revive & nourish my excessively bleached hair. Blonde ain’t easy to maintain, firstly you have to deal with the fact that the moment the black roots emerge, it’s time to touch up! Big bummer I tell you especially if your hair grows at a rapid rate like mine.

Secondly, you can’t escape the toning process to achieve that right shade of blonde which could be extremely unbearable. Hello hair, I’m starting to love you I’m gonna give you a break!

Alas the frizz is banished completely. I really like how it creates this airy feel despite how thick my hair is & it’s ridiculously smooth I want to caress it all day long! Don’t you just love my luscious curls?

Tried out this loose bun too, styled by my beautiful stylist Isabel. I felt like a lady in a split second!

Decided on having my hair down ultimately, me & my fickle mind! Despite my tough exterior, sometimes I can be quite a girl at heart!

In a span of two weeks, I’ve gone from Barbie Blonde to Light Ash Blonde. I’ve even gotten my extensions removed! Way to go Agri! Anything that doesn’t require any bleaching at the moment keeps me grinning from ear to ear. It’s pretty drastic considering the fact that I’ve lived with the Barbie Blonde for more than a year now & how it made my skin looked so porcelain fair sans makeup!

Yes I’ve the habit of wearing my eye masks for my salon visits, never mind the weird stares! Extremely effective in getting rid all signs of fatigue right after. Thank you Princess D for keeping me company!

Alright guys, enough of the suspense already! If this isn’t quite the big change, I don’t know what is! It’s so demure I can’t even recognize the reflection in the mirror. I meant it in a good way though!

I can’t thank you enough Isabel for reassuring me I wouldn’t dislike this colour & grow to love it! You know how I can be such a stubborn-headed creature & when I say no, I’m dead serious.

The King Louis Grill & Bar

When it comes to dining, I’m all about the meat despite my tiny frame. Seriously. Picture my excitement when Ben & I decided to give The King Louis a shot. Meat fest here we come!

For starters we had the Banana Bacon Bite. We were pretty skeptical about this at the start probably due to the unlikely combination. But the minute we took a bite into one, we were sold. This is a MUST-TRY!

When two gluttons dine together, it’s not possible to have just one bowl of soup for sharing. Yes beyond cure we are, but our stomachs are bottomless pits. Ben had the Signature Mushroom Soup while I had the Pumpkin Soup. Both our bowls were licked squeaky clean because it was THAT GOOD.

The Teriyaki Chicken Salad was also one of the restaurant’s signatures. A pity I don’t take any greens, but the succulent Teriyaki Chicken drenched in the warm sauce was enough to send me floating in heaven.

Let’s welcome the most sinful platter of the night – The Queen Victoria. It consists of Roasted Beef with Black Pepper Sauce, Premium BBQ Baby Back Ribs, Pan-Seared Snapper with Wasabi Mayo Sauce, Oven Baked King Prawns with Melted Australian Cheese, Sauteed Scallop with Garlic & Wine Sauce. Just the sight of these pictures is making me drool incessantly!

Despite having a belly from all that meat already, still we couldn’t say no to a platter of fries. I don’t know what’s the secret to the these fries, but we took quite a long tour around the restaurant & when we came back to eat it, it was still as crispy as ever. Genius!

Casio EX-TR15 Media Launch

It was truly an honour to be invited by CASIO to co-host the launch of the CASIO EX-TR15 Media Launch in Pan Pacific Hotel Singapore with my bubbly girl Estelle Kiora! Prior to this event, I’ve heard never-ending good stuff about the previous CASIO EXILIM models from friends of mine & I wanted one for myself too!

A good friend seems to know my undying thirst for it & loaned me the new TR15. An entire week of playing with it made me fell in love with it. Now I know why this camera is such a hit with girls all over Asia, particularly in Japan & China, it gets sold out in an instant! You’re about to find out why the new TR15 takes my breath away!

They say when you host with a friend you’re familiar with, the chemisty is undeniable. Thank you Estelle for being so patient in going through the lines with me & we definitely had a blast on stage, giving the audiences a live demonstration on how the TR15 works!

The fun bit didn’t end just there. We got off stage to interact with the audiences & let them see for themselves how good the TR15 is. Check out everyone’s elated faces! Trust me, I’m one person that’s extremely hard to please, if I’m impressed, chances are everyone else would be too!

What drew me to this baby is that In-Built WIFI that makes it so convenient to share your pictures on various social media platforms (Instagram/Facebook/Twitter) or even share with your friends immediately!

You also have to check out their Remote Shooting feature which enables you to control the TR15 from your Smart Phone or Tablet PC for shooting & monitoring the image. Having troubles finding someone to take your pictures for you all the time? The TR15 solves it all. The possibilities are endless, free-angle self-portrait shooting never felt this effortless! Now I can do all my blog advertorials at ease, my mum would be happy to know that I wouldn’t be bugging her in the middle of the night to shoot for me!

I can proudly say I’m a very satisfied user of the CASIO EX-TR15! For such a compact size, it does more wonders than you think it can. My favourite feature being the Make-Up Mode which guarantees pretty self-portrait pictures, perfect for someone like me who really loves to take pictures on the go. On a day where you’re lazy to pile your face on with makeup, simply adjust to the maximum level 12 & your skin looks dewy & poreless.

No painstaking photoshop effort needed. Even my guy friends are in awe of the TR15 & camwhore their day away along with it! True story. This is seriously the best pocket-sized camera that I’ve ever gotten my hands on.
