MILLYS X DING DONG

Here’s a short update on pictures from all over the place!

Long Beach @ Dempsey with the beautiful Venice while she was here on a day trip, but the mischievous me made her miss her flight, yikes! I had so much fun with her though from the spontaneous hair wash to multiple meals to hotel hunting to midnight foot massage/movie. Come visit Singapore again pretty please!

Went to Milly’s to beautify my nails once again. I’d never lose faith in Chloe because she’s just so good at what she does. Decided on a bold red this time round with a lil’ bit of spunk! The finishing is just way too awesome I’d let the pictures do all the talking.

Can’t wait to see what design she’s got in mind for my birthday nails coming up real soon!

There’s so many interesting eateries on Club Street & this one was a really good surprise for me. Even though there was so much greens & I had to painstakingly remove them bit by bit, the food was so mouthwatering delicious!

First time trying Fugu Shirako (Sperm Sacs), I wish I knew before I ate! My goodness I don’t quite know what else to say. It’s considered a delicacy in Japan, but it’s really an acquired taste. I need a lil’ more time to digest. That creamy burst in my mouth – I will never forget.

STOREFRIENDLY X PEPERONI PIZZERIA

Sidetrack a lil’, I know my blog’s kinda confusing at the moment because my face has transformed, but bear with me a lil’ while more my lovely readers, 3 more posts to clear & I promise you JW Plastic Surgery Korea Part 2. I’m sure you’re excited to see how my fact grafting & nose surgery went!

Did a shoot for Store Friendly in an all black & white getup before Korea. Plus I know it’s quite rare that I’m making an effort to braid my hair nicely for once, good job Agri!

If you’re keen in my high-cut sneakers, they’re available in black too & I’ve ready stocks. Not to mention how incredibly comfortable they are! Just drop me an email at agrichicavenue@gmail.com for enquiries.

Working really does feel a lot like play if you’re doing things that you actually love. In a nutshell, Store Friendly is an extension of your home. If you have TOO MANY THINGS at home & there’s no way your house can accommodate any further, you can consider ‘Personal Storage’ with Store Friendly.

There’s a couple of branches & you can just find one that’s conveniently located near you.

Alright, it’s back to work now while everyone’s partying the night away! Damn I hope this productivity sticks with me for a whole lot longer. I’m actually starting to enjoy being a hermit & staying in.


JW PLASTIC SURGERY KOREA PART 2

Today’s the day I’ve been so excited for I could barely sleep a wink the night before! Also I had to fast the night before because there was a possibility I would be getting my first surgery done. Woke up early morning for consultation at JW Plastic Surgery Korea, which also explains why I had my eye mask on.

CIMG8230b

CIMG8240b

Met Emily for the first time in person, we’ve been liaising via email for a couple of months now & it was great to finally meet her! If you must know, she looked after us like a big sister for the entire trip & I’ve never felt more thankful!

Filled out some forms before waiting to see the doctors & we went a lil’ crazy camwhoring today, after all it might be the last time we’d be seeing our old faces, it’s time to keep some memories!

CIMG8261b

First up, I went to see Dr. Seul for fat grafting consultation. Prior to this trip, I’ve been really eating a lot more than usual so that there’d be more than enough fats to extract from my thighs. According to Dr.Seul, the fats quality from the thigh is better than the tummy. He told me the areas where he’d be injecting the fats & honestly, I couldn’t wait to get started!

CIMG8268b

Next, I went to see Dr.Choi for eye surgery consultation. I had addressed to him that I’m looking to achieve deep-set looking eyes & to make them look less tired. I was initially advised to get Incision Ptosis Correction/Double Eyelid Surgery to even out + open up both my eyes but upon hearing that I have to lay off contact lens/glasses for a month, I decided this procedure might not be for me since I’m a blind bat without contacts.

Dr. Choi then suggested I did a Sub-brow Incision Eyelid-Lift Surgery together with a Forehead Lift so that my eyelids wouldn’t look droopy anymore & I thought an eyebrow lift would do wonders for me. Decided to put the forehead lift on hold for the moment since I haven’t hit the big 30 yet!

Lastly, I went to see Dr. Suh for nose surgery consultation. I already like my side profile of my nose but I believe it could be further improved without the droopy tip. From the side view, my nose looks hooked & it makes me look older than I am. I am looking to achieve a super straight nose bridge, more equivalent to a man’s nose, because I notice a girl’s nose bridge from the side is more curved.

From the frontal view, my nose tip is bulbous & is not proportionate to my other facial features. He assured me he’d do his best to give me the nose that I desire (straight nose-bridge,less bulbous nose, no droopy tip) & I believe in him because I’ve heard so much about Dr.Suh having magical hands when it comes to sculpting a beautiful nose.

Did a CT Scan & realized all that nose fillers I’ve done over the years measure up to 5mm! I had to get jabbed again to dissolve all the fillers that was left in my nose. Goodbye to you fillers, I’m really to go for the real deal.

Strip off all that makeup (leaving just the eyeliner on) & with all the nose fillers dissolved, this is what you get. Told you my face was in desperate need of some fats to regain my youth & my eyes were really sleepy-looking without eyeliner no matter how big. Also, you can tell that my face is not symmetrical.

Here’s a clearer idea of all the procedures I’d be going for.

Here Dr.Choi is making his final markings on my new eyebrow position.

Two hours after the surgery, doesn’t it look like I just got an eyebrow embroidery done? The stitching was so refined you’d barely notice I got anything done. I took a quick rest on the comfortable heater bed before raiding Myeong Dong to get my year’s supply of masks. I really wasn’t feeling weak one bit & had no urge to sleep! #thisgirliscrazy

Can you spot the pair of deeper-set looking eyes & the distance between my eyelids & brows are brought closer? Very happy with the results because now my eyes look awake without any makeup! Thank you so much JW Plastic Surgery Korea & Dr.Choi ! I’m still in the swollen stage at the moment, there’s a downtime & I’d be showing you more pictures on the progress & final result in subsequent posts.

If you’re looking to get plastic surgery done, don’t be afraid to ask the doctor about anything you’re unsure of, because ultimately it’s your face & nobody knows it better than you do so it’s important that you understand what procedure you’d be going through so that you’re mentally prepared.

Check out my Video Part 1.

DATSUMO LABO X CHOP SUEY

Hello Datsumo Labo, it’s been quite a while! I’m back at the Orchard Branch to get those legs hairless & silky smooth.

If you’re looking to get hair removal done, I can’t think of a better place better than Datsumo Labo! Hair removal for two areas at only $49, where to find such a good deal? Besides, I pinky-promise you the whole procedure is painless, unlike the traditional IPL which hurts so bad you cringe at the thought of it.

DSC06645b

CIMG2643b

CIMG2629b

They even have a refund policy here, hence if you don’t see results, you can get your money back. I’ve been here for about 4 times now & each recurring visit makes me a notch happier because I know I’m a step closer to hairless skin.

CIMG2607b

CIMG2626b

CIMG2614b

Another thing I like so much about Datsumo Labo is also the fact that their in-house hair-removal machine has double benefits instead of one. Not only does it kill our hair follicles, it also aids in whitening our skin. The more visits, the fairer you’d become! Now you know why Datsumo Labo is such a huge hit with us girls.

CIMG2628b

And if you thought the price plan here was crazy affordable already, you’d be even happier to know that if you quote ‘Agri Velt’, you’d get an additional 10% off! Wait no further, make an appointment with Datsumo Labo today, it’s time to do some spring cleaning on those unsightly hair!

Oh what a bummer! The weekend’s coming to an end, but it doesn’t really make a difference since I have been staying away from nightlife for a month now. Look out for my JW Beauty Part 1 Blogpost up tomorrow evening. Happy Sunday everyone!


TOKYO LUXEY X PLATYPUS KITCHEN

Who isn’t a fan of Japanese cosmetic/beauty products? When it comes to vanity products, big names like Shiseido, Kose & Fancl cross your mind & they’re some of Japan’s proudest. In actual fact, there’s a lot of other fantastic Japanese brands which are unheard of by us foreigners but highly popular with the locals there.

CIMG7621b

Earlier last month, I was invited to the introduction of Tokyo Luxey over at Platypus Kitchen. Was extremely honored to have met the founder – Miss Chie Maeda upclose & personal. Thank you so much for choosing me as one of the exclusive Luxeys!

CIMG7622b

Let’s take a look at the Tokyo Luxey website!

BISTRO DU VIN X PARTY

This is how a typical Friday turns out – Dinner + Party + Korean BBQ!

Dinner at Bistro Du Vin. Sometimes it’s scary how much two people can eat, it’s almost dinosaur-like. But I enjoyed the food here tremendously!

No other place feels more like home on Fridays aside from Fenix. Time for us girls to prep at mine & ready, set, hunt! Same routine, every weekend without fail.

GANGNAM LASER CLINIC

So yes, prior to my Korea trip, I was already making so many adjustments to my lifestyle, biggest change being laying off alcohol (hell yeah to being sober) & being more diligent with my skin rituals.

Because I know I wouldn’t be able to cleanse my face properly after surgery & my skin would probably look fatigued by then, I decided to cheat beforehand & undergo Express Laser Facial with Dr. Moses Ng at Gangnam Laser Clinic to combat dull-looking skin & achieve clearer-looking skin in under fifteen minutes.

Check out their facebook page HERE.

CIMG7870b

Two lasers in one session. One’s for Toning & the other one’s for Micro-Peeling, both beneficial for attaining crystal-clear skin + instant glow. Even better if you have a red-carpet event to attend to after!

CIMG7873b

CIMG7876b

The treatment ends off with a Hydro-Lifting Mask that felt extremely cooling on my skin! In face, I fell into a deep sleep & woke up feeling incredibly refreshed.

CIMG7881b

It’s such a quick process without any discomfort & you see instant results right after. And the best part is that the results lasted me for a good 2 weeks!

CIMG7890b

CIMG7891b

Despite the use of just cleansing sheets 5 days in a row, my pores were still tight & my skin was looking effortlessly radiant without the usage of toner or essence throughout my entire Korea trip, all thanks to this amazing laser! Thank you so much Gangnam Laser Clinic, I can’t wait for my next visit upon recovery to attain even better skin.

CIMG7892b

CIMG7898b

This Express Laser Treatment is highly recommended for people who like things fuss-free with no downtime. You can get it done during your lunch break & head back to the office looking radiant afterwards!

Gangnam Laser Clinic is located at 1 Maritime Square, #03-55, Harbourfront Centre. Call 6275 3381 for any enquiries!
