PRIVE CLINIC X AO CHAN

I’ve gotten my first fats grafting procedure in Korea a couple months back & it really helped to create a softer look overall. I loved it while it lasted, but sadly, you know how my metabolism rate is, it’s now gone with the wind, just like that. It’s not very visible in pictures, but oh lord, in person it makes quite the difference especially if you look at my side view. Oh sigh!

I definitely don’t think my forehead is hideous-looking without all these add-ons, but I’ve always had a clear vision on how I wanted it to look & since there’s now a way to create a youthful appearance with dermal fillers, I’m ready to give it a shot. So, my problem areas are my side temples, they’re slightly depressed. Blame it on my genetics!

Having heard so much raves about PRIVE CLINIC from a couple of my friends, I decided to visit for the first time. You know when it comes to matters of the face, I’m very specific in what I’m looking to achieve. I mentioned to the doctor that I wanted a subtle change for a start, not anything too dramatic since I was unsure how the dermal fillers would settle on me. Trust me, I had the phobia of having weird lumps all over my forehead previously, cause I was under the impression that countless mini jabs would be needed, but the doctor assured me with the JUVEDERM VOLIFT, the results would be very natural-looking.

Frankly speaking, I felt the pinch when I heard this wonder treatment would cost me $2400, but it’s all worth it when I saw the results! Ahh the price I pay for beauty’s sake! The forehead is a very sensitive area as it has many blood vessels, I’m really glad that DR. KAREN SOH did a very nice job on it. Didn’t want to go all the way for the first time, I was advised to go back for a review in 2 weeks time to see if a touch-up would be necessary. When it comes to fillers, less is always better than more! Immediately after, there’s a noticeable improvement not in a drastic manner. Pain level wise, I’d just put it at a 2/10. Super bearable!

A couple of my friends have commented I’m looking more feminine these days & I’m happy to say forehead fillers played quite a huge role in that. Thank you so much DR. KAREN SOH!

PRIVE CLINIC is located at BLK 390 ORCHARD ROAD, #03-03, PALAIS RENAISSANCE.

Went for dinner at AO CHAN afterwards. Who’d imagine there’d be this hidden treasure in such a secluded mall!

Updating my blog on a more regular basis these days! Yes getting back to being hardworking is a real good feeling! Happy mid-week everyone!


FAT COW X BLOGSHOP SHOOTS

Yes I confess. My obsession for FAT COW has gone a lil’ overboard. Oh my but the thought of meat that melts like butter in my mouth leaves me wanting for more. Thrice in a row for the week & I’m still not done. These are just two of my top picks from their lunch menu. Super value-for money for the portions & incredibly filling! Yes for this I actually don’t mind waking up early.

Sidetrack a lil’. Recently I’ve been working with a couple of blog shops. It’s been a lot of fun & nothing makes me happier than being dressed in beautiful apparels. People really love dressing me like a lady on set, so much so that I question the girl I see in the mirror. Oh wow who’s that girl?

Don’t kill me just yet! Back to FAT COW & I must say the dinner here is DA BOMB! Seriously can’t get enough of the GRADE A5 RIBEYE, so damn good I felt like I was in heaven! Even the SUKIYAKI was AMAZEBALLS, I definitely need to come back again soon!

Alright, I’m very excited to share some exciting news with you in the coming week! Do stay tuned for that, but meanwhile have a good week everyone!


ASTIQUE CLINIC X HY CALIFORNIA

Yes you’re not the only one who noticed my eyes are looking brighter & more awake as time goes by. No more eyebags, no more under-eye wrinkles, no more sunken under-eyes. I’m about to let you in on my secret!

I’ve been bothered over the hollow area under my eyes for a long time & yes the fat grafting was good while it lasted. But damn do I hate my high metabolism rate at times, the fats have decided to bid me goodbye & yes I’m back to having sunken-looking under eyes. Decided to drop by ASTIQUE CLINIC to see what can be done to restore youthful-looking eyes again.

No point waking up in the mornings & pin-pointing the flaws on your face & have a bad day over it. It really gets on my nerves when friends question me : AGRI DID YOU HAVE A LATE NIGHT? YOUR EYES LOOK SO TIRED! The thing is I’ve sufficient sleep & I feel rejuvenated. I understand many would tell me to age gracefully but when it comes to physical appearance, it all boils down to my personal preference. Looking good makes me feel good naturally.

Anyhow, I was introduced to a couple of fillers & with the recommendation from DR. MATTHEW YAP, I went along with the JUVEDERM VOLBELLA. He promised minimal pain & he really kept to his words!

Decided to get BOTOX done for my under-eyes to reduce fine lines too. Voila I’m done &  pain factor is only 2/10. The bruise is also minimal there’s no problem heading out right after! The only thing you’d possibly feel afterwards is some teeny weeny soreness which goes away quickly after a day.

Happy to have my entire under-eye area filled up now, in fact it’s looking so taut now I feel almost 21 again. You can also see how visibly smaller my eye bags have now become! Who dares tell me I look tired now? Can’t wait to head back in 2 weeks to see if any touch-up is required.

THE TAMARIND SPA X TATSU TEPPANYAKI

If you’ve known me long enough, you know my life’s not all about crazy parties 24/7. On days where I decide to take a break (yes all that dancing does give us quite the body ache), I usually gather with my closed ones for an ultimate pampering session. We always make it a weekly affair to give our overworked bodies some tender loving care & catch up over tea + cupcakes. It’s spa time, baby!

CIMG9823b

A good friend of mine previously checked out THE TAMARIND SPA at UPPER THOMSON ROAD & highly recommended it. I’ve known her long enough to only fill me in on good stuff! Without much hesitation, I decided to visit the place together with my babes. Their menu is pretty extensive I must say, ranging from RELAXING MASSAGES to RENEWING SCRUBS to PAMPERING BODY WRAPS. I am definitely spoilt for choice, but eventually settled for the MANUAL LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE MASSAGE (much needed to drain all that toxins from my body) & the SEA SALT SCRUB WITH ESSENTIAL OIL (exfoliation for sexy back).

I actually fell into a deep sleep during a massage & woke up feeling extremely rejuvenated. If you must know, I have been suffering from insomnia for the past month & am literally a walking zombie everyday. It’s been a long time since I felt this relaxed, I sincerely thank my therapist’s nimble fingers. My friend really wasn’t joking when she said how skillful & experienced the therapists here were & that I’d definitely love the massage here. I doubt we’d be visiting any other place anytime soon!

Damn, I still can’t get over how soft my skin felt after that scrub! In fact, I’m tempted to try out the BLACKBERRY SCRUB on my next visit. They’ve got a huge selection of scrubs, you’re bound to find a scent that you’re attracted to. I highly recommend THE TAMARIND SPA because of the good experience I’ve had here from the moment I step in. Did I also mention their in-house tea was so addictive I happily helped myself to a third serving?

THE TAMARIND SPA is located at 235 UPPER THOMSON ROAD, THOMSON RIDGE ESTATE.

Finally found the time to squeeze a mini vacation for this coming weekend, I simply can’t wait! Meanwhile, let me get started on the never-ending workload. Have a good week everyone!


KLARITY BEAUTY BRUNCH X JODEFY

Attended KLARITY’S BEAUTY BRUNCH the other day with my beautiful babe. Despite the super lack of sleep, we managed to make our way here at 10 in the morning. Yes we deserve a pat on our backs! When it comes to trying out new beauty products, we’re always game.

Honestly, don’t you think the LASERTOX CC MIRACLE WHITE LOTION has such a nice packaging? Okay I admit, I’m a sucker for all things hologram. GOT TO HAVE IT.

Thank you KLARITY for treating us all to such a wonderful feast! No matter how sleepy I might be, the minute you put a platter of food in front of my face, I am awakened!

Needless to say, my babe & I can’t resist taking gazillion photos at the event since the lighting at SALT GRILL & SKY BAR was perfect for us. Just in case you’re wondering, we didn’t plan to come dressed in tropical themes Great minds think alike!

Ten minutes later, we’re still at it. Damn we need to take a break from the camwhoring already!

You know how a lot of the BB/CC Creams out there in the market do not deliver results like they promised & at the end of the day, your face ends up looking like a mess. Trust me, I’ve had my fair share of makeup fail moments but I won’t let a couple of bad experiences stop me from giving new brands a chance. I’ve given KLARITY’S LASERTOX CC WHITE LOTION a shot for a month now & definitely loving how LIGHTWEIGHT it feels on my skin + it also has WHITENING BENEFITS(another good reason to love it even more)! Yes slab it on & you look one tone fairer instantly. This has become one of my favourite CC Cream alongside Rachel K CC Cream!

CIMG2186b

If you’re looking for something with full coverage, this wouldn’t do the job. I personally love using it as a sunscreen though since it helps to brighten up my skin instantly while protecting it at the same time!

//JODEFY//

Thank you JODEFY for sending out this AMAZON DRESS IN TROPICAL! It’s such a beauty & the quality is supreme. I don’t usually wear dresses like these in the past but I must say, I have started to become more ladylike these days. Hurray!

HAIR VISUALS X TAMASHII ROBATAYA

I know I’ve started to MIA-ed again on this space, this always happens during the middle of  the year since friends from all over start to visit & being the good host that I am, I want to make sure they have a splendid time while they’re here. Thank you for still visiting my blog despite my disappearance, I’d continue to post up nice pictures to feed your hunger!

Anyhow, I’m done ranting. It’s the time of the month to banish my damaged ends (snip snip snip) & give my hair the beautiful blowout it deserves. Yes I’m still very much loving my hair dark  at the moment, so I guess I’d just be concentrating on a series of intensive hair treatments for now.

Thank you KEVIN KOOL for continuing to care for my hair unconditionally. Hair does not feel limp anymore & is immediately strengthened after this MILK ANTI-FRIZZ TREATMENT. Unknown to many, but on a good hair day, my mood is instantly uplifted & I probably wouldn’t be so cranky. This probably means I need to see my stylist MORE OFTEN! Sometimes, I wish I can work the hairdryer just like he does!

Of course, KEVIN KOOL doesn’t just specialize in giving you beautiful blowouts, he’s really good at creating pretty/edgy-looking braids too. I definitely need to get one done real soon & show you!

Do I look feminine or what with these soft curls? Thank you once again KEVIN KOOL for always making me look incredibly womanly even though I’m very tomboy-ish in reality! Now that I’ve got flaunt-worthy hair, it’s time to take it to dinner & let everyone be green with envy!

SALON LE POINT is located at 1 CUSCADEN ROAD, #01-07/08. Call 9729 7081 to make an appointment with my stylist KEVIN KOOL & quote ‘AGRI’ to get a discount on all hair services!

Light dinner at TAMASHII ROBATAYA afterwards. Food here was SO GOOD I definitely need to have a round two sometime soon.
