If you’re a die-hard Japanese foodie like myself (to the extent of thrice a week), you need to listen up! How many times do you look through your credit card bills and feel the heart pain? The amount I spend on Japanese dining at the end of every month can literally buy me a holiday getaway. Gahh!
Can someone come up with something already to keep my tummy happy minus the hefty price tag I have to pay? And no, I cannot cut down on Japanese food obsession. That would turn me suicidal. But guess what? Seems like my prayers are being answered! A dear friend of mine recently introduced me to JAPAPON & I’m now hooked to it because it’s so easy to use & it’s really beneficial for my thinning wallet.
So basically, JAPAPON is a coined word of JAPAN + COUPON. It is a joint purchase website that deals with PREMIUM COUPON for most JAPANESE-RELATED MERCHANDISE & SERVICES. So if you’ve noticed, JAPAPON’S logo is in red & white. To show my love for it, I’m all dressed & feeling pretty in the same colour scheme. I LOVE YOU JAPAPON!
Of course, you might not be a glutton like me. But you could be a shopaholic or a beauty enthusiast or even a wanderlust lover too. Trust me, JAPAPON covers every aspect of your interests. No way on earth would I miss out on 50% DISCOUNT COUPON at my favorite restaurant!
Here’s a couple of coupons that might appeal to you all! Since my number one love is food, I’d be showing you all the food-related coupons! Yes I’m biased like that. Don’t forget to browse the site for even more amazing deals!
50& OFF ($49.9) WAGYU JAPANESE BBQ BUFFET 2 HOURS (U.P $100)
50% OFF ($15.8) ‘IKKOUSHA’ 2 BOWL OF GOD FIRE (TANJONG PAGAR PLAZA-CHIJMES) (U.P $31.6)
50% OFF ($16) ‘SAN-SUI’ SEAFOOD UNROLLED SUSHI (U.P $32)

50% OFF ($45) KAGOSHIMA WAGYU BEEF & SPANISH PORK SHABU SHABU BUFFET (U.P $90)
Hope all of you are having a great mid-week & stay tuned to my next post on TCS AESTHETICS CENTRAL CLINIC which will be live tomorrow!
I was thrilled to be invited to the launch of an all-new NEX fashion shopping experience! Who better to take along with me other than my favorite partner-in-crime, Reiee! Even though I started with a broken shoe, it was quickly sorted out. It was a fun-filled afternoon of delicious canapes + champagne kisses (okay I admit I was hogging the food station), countless laughter & at last, how can we forget the necessary camwhoring (that’s what we do best)!
Any event with QUEEN KUMAR is certainly highly entertaining & we had a great time watching the NEX STYLE ICON CHALLENGE. Six contestants were selected to be styled by VELDA & KEITH PNG. Not an easy task, considering the fact the fashion choices at NEX is endless (OVER 60 FASHION STORES), but both teams did so well creating each look under SGD$200. The looks were put together so nicely I was literally itching to shop immediately after.
Finally managed a shot with the ever so beautiful VELDA! She’s so beautiful in person even I couldn’t contain my demeanor. #spokenlikeafangirl
No shopping mall experience is quite complete until we indulge ourselves in the NEXCAM 360 – a first-ever mall-exclusive 360 degree camera! This is a whole new level of selfie altogether & YOU HAVE TO GIVE IT A TRY! Don’t miss out as it’s only AVAILABLE TILL DECEMBER 14TH. Also, shoppers who SPEND A MINIMUM OF $200 TILL DECEMBER 31ST get to redeem the LIMITED EDITION NEX SELFIE SET with compliments of NEX.
With so many GLOBAL POWERHOUSE FASHION BRANDS at NEX, such as H&M, DOROTHY PERKINS & UNIQLO, I assure you there’s definitely something to cater to your likes. In fact, when we finally got down to shopping, we explored the stores, one by one, with absolutely no rest. The quest to finding the perfect festive season dress is a never-ending journey!
It will truly be a joyous MERRY NEXMAS at NEX. Shoppers stand to WIN OVER $18,000 WORTH OF PRIZES in the NEX’MAS DRAW that includes the GRAND PRIZE of TIANPO DIAMOND NECKLACE (worth $9000) & $1000 NEX CASH VOUCHERS with every $50 spend at NEX.
Wait no further, head on down to the largest fashion destination in the North-East region of Singapore! Thank you so much NEX for having us! Happy holidays to all you wonderful people!
When it comes to my fashion choices, I love unique & quirky piece hence ORCHARD CENTRAL has always been one of my favorite go-to malls for the independent labels by local designers. And guess what? ORCHARD CENTRAL is currently having their fall fashion campaign for the month of OCTOBER, featuring the exciting latest fall collections from tenants such as SABRINAGOH, THE RECKLESS SHOP, PLEATATION and SANS & SANS. Can you picture how stoked I was when they approached me to select a couple of my favorites from their fall collections!
//SANS & SANS//
Don’t I look incredibly feminine in this ensemble? My folks will definitely give the stamp of approval. It’s a pity I don’t have a 9-5 job anymore or I’d be parading this all around the office. It’s not often that I do the sweet-girl look & I must say I’m digging it!
Had such a tough time picking a favorite here when every piece screams my style (you know how colorful my personality is), but eventually I settled with these. Androgynous, feminine & cute, I LOVE THEM ALL!
I really like this label for its intricate pleating, it really gives me the ISSEY MIYAKE vibe! Plus, their apparels are so versatile you can wear it in many different ways. Loving how resort-chic their maxis are & in all the beautiful prints, you’re bound to find one to your liking. Wear them with your bralets (I should have worn white) or bikinis & you’d be turning heads! Their clutches are also must-haves, all pleated too & comes in an assortment of colors.
//THE RECKLESS SHOP//
Alright I confess, the minute I stepped in, it felt like home. Running around like an overgrown kid was quite a sight, oops! Oh boy the things I do when I get overly excited! I’d let the pictures do all the talking instead & you’d get what I mean.
And to all you fashionistas out there, don’t forget to join in the OC INSTAGRAM CONTEST! All you have to do is follow @orchardcentral. Next, snap photos of your #OOTD, hashtag #OCstyle & tag @orchardcentral. Voila you’re done! 5 WINNERS with the MOST LIKES on #OCstyle will WIN $250 WORTH OF SHOPPING VOUCHERS EACH. PS, this contest ends 31st OCTOBER!
Did a collaboration with my stylist KEVIN KOOL recently & I must say I’m absolutely in love with the creative side braid styling! The look was so incredibly edgy I almost didn’t want to tear it all apart the day after. Looking forward to more shoots like this in the coming weeks! Also, I have CRISPIN LEE to thank for the amazing photos!
My stylist KEVIN KOOL is truly a hair extraordinaire , be it for creative coloring or styling, rest assured you’re in absolute good hands! Throughout all these months, he’s helped to revive my limp-looking hair. I’ve never been more happy to have such a dedicated stylist!
To make an appointment with KEVIN KOOL, drop him a call/whatsapp at 9729 7081.
//THE BLOGSHOP CLEARANCE BAZAAR 5//
Yes I heard you, my never-ending obsession for clothes has left me no choice but to live with the motto : In with the new, out with the old. I’d be clearing my never worn before clothes & if you must know, I don’t have the habit of repeating the same outfit twice, so yes those must go too! There’d be shoes, accessories & bags too. ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ABOVE $20!
Together with my lil’ sister Reiee, we’d be doing some MAJOR CLEARING at THE BLOGSHOP CLEARANCE BAZAAR 5 organized by T.CARTEL. So stoked to be a part of this alongside with 50 other blogshops! It’s truly a MEGA FLEA!
//NOVEMBER 8TH & 9TH (SATURDAY & SUNDAY)//
//SUNTEC CONVENTION CONCOURSE AT LEVEL 3//
With a huge number of stalls selling ALL kinds of products, THE BLOGSHOP CLEARANCE SALE BAZAAR 5 is an event not be missed in the local scene by all shopaholics. There will certainly be something for everyone, regardless of age & gender. If you’d like to join as a vendor to clear your stocks too, please email T.Cartel.Group@gmail.com to register!
And signing off, don’t forget to drop by & show us some love! We guarantee you will not be disappointed! Have a good weekend everyone!
Yes my body clock’s slowly becoming that of a regular person. I wake up early enough to spoil my tummy with nice lunches. Hello healthy lifestyle, it’s been quite awhile!
Popped by SALON LE POINT recently on two separate occasions to shower some TLC to those neglected hair of mine. Oh boy I can be so unkempt at times, you really have no idea! So thankful for the fact that my stylist KEVIN KOOL always slots me in even if I call him at the eleventh hour. When it comes to matters of the hair, he’s 100% dedicated & I really trust him to tease my hair any way he desires.
//ANTI-FRIZZ MILK TREATMENT//
Can’t get over how well this treatment works for my hair & it smells so freaking good! The smoothness lasts for 2 weeks at least! In fact, I realize these days my hair is in a better state than the past. I no longer wake up with hair looking like a lion’s mane. It’s so much more manageable!
//HAIR COLORING + CREATIVE STYLING//
Believe me I was apprehensive at the start when KEVIN told me I was getting black highlights this time round, but after seeing the end result, I must say I am very pleased! The black was really subtle & not harsh in any way I imagined it to have turned out. Finished off the look with some creative styling!
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 discount on all hair services.
Stay tuned to my next post coming up! Yes I’ve been quite the workaholic as of late & I’m loving it. Thank you for still continuing to read this space of mine despite the lack of updates!
Here’s a mid-week short update before the crazy weekend hits me like hurricane once more. Last week got me so exhausted I honestly have no idea how I’d survive this upcoming one!
//MY DONNA BELLA//
Spent the late afternoon in this BLOSSOM TRUMPET DRESS(RED). Thank you MY DONNA BELLA for sending me this sweet floral piece! The quality is indeed supreme & I definitely love how feminine it makes me look!
Check out MY DONNA BELLA for more beautiful pieces! For advertorial/photo shoot enquiries, drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Took the time to check out this highly-raved charcoal-grill eatery at CUPPAGE PLAZA & ate like there’s no tomorrow. Damn can’t believe everything tasted SO GOOD I have no complaints, especially the foie gras & ox tongue! Trust me I’m salivating as I pen this down. Can’t kick this gluttony behaviour of mine no matter how hard I tried! The unhealthier it is, the more my body says yes!
It was such a pity I had to abstain from seafood for a week & missed out on some of their specials! But now that I’m all good, I’d be back to try them out on my next visit! Have a good Thursday all!
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!
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.
//THE FAT COW DONBURI//
//FAT FOA-GURA DON//
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?
For photoshoot engagements, drop me an email at email@example.com for enquiries!
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!
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!
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!
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!
Do check out JODEFY for more beautiful pieces! Have a good week ahead!
Whee! One post down, two more to go!
Did another shoot for Acorism for the third time, I’ve always enjoyed working with them, they’re such a fun bunch! Thank you Coco for always clothing me in pretty clothes for your photoshoots!
Dinner at Aoki afterwards. It was so good I can’t get enough, yeah if you must know food is my weakness!
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.
Okay it’s time to quit thinking about food & get back to work. Have a good week ahead everyone!
Sell Online. Create Your Online Store Today.
How many of you are looking to start up your personal online store, but cast that idea aside because you’re simply not HTML-savvy & you feel that it just takes up too much work? Yes I have plenty of products available for sale & I need to reach out to a huge pool of customers. But where do I start?
Don’t worry, you’re not alone! Yes hiring someone to get your online store done may be the best solution, but it’s not going to come cheap. Guess what guys? I recently got introduced to this e-commerce platform- Shopify & if you’re looking to create your online store, you’d be thrilled I’m actually sharing this with you!
Firstly, set up an account with Shopify at www.shopify.com.sg simply by filling in your details!
Once that’s done, you’d be directed to the dashboard. You’re one step closer to launching your online store because right here you get to customize & manage your store.
It’s now time to shop for a theme by clicking on Themes, the range is extensive, ranging from free to paid ones.
After all the browsing, I’ve decided to go along with this sleek-looking theme for a start – React. Isn’t it amazing that they also give you a preview on how your site will look on your mobile?
In addition to that, you can customize your online store further! Yes all this can be done without a web designer, you can go as creative as you like.
Next up, start adding products to your store by clicking ‘Products’ on your dashboard & you can fill in specific descriptions (size/price/material). Here’s how mine looks!
Click on Settings & head on to ‘Checkout’ to choose your preferred mode of payment. You can link up your Paypal & even enable Bank/ATM Transfer. How convenient is that!
The best part about Shopify is the ‘Email Templates’ section. Click on Settings followed by Notifications to get here. Honestly, how time consuming & confusing is it to manually email your customers one by one to update them on the status of their orders? When you’re dealing with bulk orders, you can really say Shopify is god-sent! I can now bid that problem goodbye, because Shopify has installed this feature where it automatically sends order confirmations to customers who have made payment.
Let me show you a preview of my online store!
Setting up an online store is not as mind-boggling as I thought it’d be & it can definitely be done within your budget, thank you so much Shopify for making my neat-looking online store a dream come true!
Wait up for the good news everyone! I promised a lot more giveaways for you guys in 2014 & here I am with another one. Shopify will be giving away 5 sets of 3-month Starter-Kit Trial exclusively to my readers. Experience for yourself how fast & easy it really is to get your online store ready for launch with Shopify!
Here’s how you can participate:

*Contest is open to Singapore Residents only & winners will be notified via phone or email.*

It’s a universal truth that all women are obsessed with fashion & playing dress-up. Any guesses on how many pieces of apparels I own in my wardrobe? An astronomical figure, I guiltily confess!
What I notice throughout the years of my ever-changing fashion sense & style, there is a constant thing amidst my chameleon tendencies. My soft spot for beautiful jewelry.
Everyone knows I love accessorizing. When it comes to sparkly fine jewelry, I know I absolutely cannot resist.
There is a reason for the eternal fascination women have with diamonds. The moment a woman puts on her jewelry, it makes her feel special & she exudes a kind of elegance. This is why I believe, every woman should own a piece of jewelry that brings out her charm.
When it comes to jewelry, what is my preference?
What you see on me is a Xanna Reis Prima Swarovski Jewelry Set in Scarlet Red, isn’t it glamorous?
This exquisite red jewelry set made with platinum plating & Swarovski Crystals is from Xanna Reis, an online jewelry & accessories store boasting of the finest selections in town.
Not only is it perfect for the Chinese New Year occasion, red is a colour that I love to wear again & again because it flatters my fair complexion so well!
I am all ready to impress this Chinese New Year, are you?
Another very exquisite piece of accessory that is upcoming on Xanna Reis is this exotic Gothic Mystic Black Jewel Necklace, which I’m so smitten with. Very honored to be the one giving you a sneak preview!
This is THE necklace to glam up any classic or simple dresses you might find too boring to wear on its own, it’s gonna bring you so many compliments!
Ladies, you might wish to LIKE their facebook page HERE to be the first to know as they will have many more pretty designs coming up!
Fine quality jewelry at affordable prices is hard to come by these days, so my readers can now be thankful for Xanna Reis!
Happy jewelry hunting at www.xannareis.com !

When it comes to shopping, I think there’s no need to guess who does it best! Despite the ever-expanding wardrobe, it hasn’t stopped me from wanting more & more. Who can resist beautiful-looking clothes?
I recently did a shoot for this new kid on the block – ACORISM. Midway through the shoot, I already wanted to take everything on set home! Pretty accessories included. #confessionsofashopaholic
But seriously, I took a liking to so many of their clothes it was a nerve-wrecking situation to decide which pieces to keep! Thank you Coco for dressing me in demure pieces too, I felt like a different person altogether but it was so much fun!
x SOUL-HEALING TOP x
I love how this top puts you in the mood to get dressed instantly. Despite bearing such loud prints, it’s really versatile & easy to wear. But since I’m feeling a lil’ vain these days, I decided to pair it with a metallic red skirt to create a more glam look!
x KAYLEY-TOPSHOP INSPIRED TOP x
Every girl needs a cute-looking knit to keep herself in style & stay warm at the same time! It’s definitely a staple piece. In fact, I’m so obsessed with this piece so much I might have broken my rule of ‘never wearing a piece of clothing more than once’.
It’s too adorable, I just couldn’t resist. On days where you’re feeling lazy, throw on a pair of shorts + booties & trust me you’d still be looking tres tres chic!
Mention ‘Shopwithagri5’ at checkout for 5% off your order. Shop with ACORISM now!
//SPATHE PUBLIC HOUSE//
I love this place so much I’m coming back soon to try the meter long sausage! Heard that it was THE BOMB!
So excited for tomorrow’s countdown, can’t believe how fast time flies! Time to tuck into bed earlier today, goodnight world!
Missing my Korean hunny so much! Someone’s having the time of her life in Korea right not, boohoo. Can’t wait till she’s back in 2 weeks. Looking at all these pictures is just making me miss my blonde hair even more.
Dolce Tokyo here we come! We’re a lil’ green-tea obsessed especially after all that drinking! Never challenge my babe, she seriously drinks like a man.
One of my favourite pastime includes making the people I love eat as much as me – possibly five times a day! Pretty evil I know.
You know you’ve been hanging out too much with someone too much when your camera is filled with each other’s photos, oops! Truth is, despite meeting twice a day, we still can’t get enough. I love this woman so much!
By the way, have I also mentioned that I’m so thrilled to be sponsored by Milly’s ? I’ve seen how my girlfriends get such intricately-designed nails that makes me green with envy.
Well, envy no more Agri, for you are also about to have perfect-looking nails 365 days a year. Thank you so much Milly’s !
Took quite a while to come up with this design + colour scheme, yes me & my fickle mind. Chole was very patient throughout it all & came up with this design for me eventually. I’m really the sort who can’t sit still for long & ended up falling asleep.
Picture my happiness when I woke up to pretty pastel-coloured nails! MAD LOVE!!
Chole’s drawing skills – simply out the world. You have to look for her if you go to Milly’s ! A one-stop beauty station, Milly’s specialize in hair extension & eyelash extensions too aside from nail affairs.
Check out their facebook page HERE.
Milly’s is located at Far East Plaza #03-131 & Bugis Village Extension, Level 2 at Bom Bom Street, No. 3/4/5.

Decided it was okay to be totally narcissistic since I have alluring eyes right now. Yes I have my moments too okay? Who says I’m cold like an ice queen 24/7!
Thank you Makiyo’s for sending me Barbie Lenses enough to last me a lifetime! You’re way too awesome!
The selection over at Makiyo’s is so extensive you can literally go insane, but in a good way though. I particularly love the Super Barbie Range, it’s so damn beautiful! I look like a character fresh out of the comic book upon wearing them!
Here’s some pictures of me wearing a couple of the Super Barbie lenses, not too sure which models I took since I literally wiped out the entire store. Not exaggerating at all.
Check out Makiyo’s & play a lil’ dress up for your eyes! Quote “Agri Velt” to receive $1 off the bill now!! 🙂
Just recently, I’ve been hanging out at Mandarin Gallery quite a fair bit, be it for a quick catch-up over coffee or window shopping. Came across this independent boutique – M Culture since lately I’m loving things more towards the eclectic style. Let’s do a mini tour around the store shall we?
Picking out a couple of favourites was pretty mind-boggling since there’s really a lot of pretty outfits I’d love to don on a day-to-day basis. Confessions of a true shopaholic! If you’re all about good fabric, this can be your ultimate shopping playground!
Aside from carrying sleek silhouette apparels from local designer Michelle Ngo, M Culture is also the exclusive outlet for Absolute Asia, a Singapore-based collective with a mix of merchandise designed by Asians & made in Asia. The main focus of the label is collection of small leather goods & bags in soft nappa leather & python skins. And yours truly is a huge fan of all things python!
And that’s not the end of it! M Culture carries one of my favourite brands – Religion Clothing UK. Absolute LOVE.
If unique pieces & exquisite quality are what you desire, this is the place to check out!
Here’s a lil’ sneak of what I’ve snagged from the store! Alas, the punk rock side of me never subsides. Loving this True Religion top to death!
The perfect way to start my day – comfort food for the growling tummy. A lil’ Gyu-Tan & Sunagimo at Ippudo Tao before my tummy starts to protest! A hungry person is not to be trifled with, haven’t you heard?
And it just gets better, look where I spent my afternoon! The combination of tea + macarons is enough to make me filled with joy. No this ain’t a cafe, but I promise you it’s something even better.
Thanks for inviting me Carlo Rino , I’m more than delighted to enter an ultimate bag galore. Please don’t murder me should I mess up your shelves because this reminds me of candy land so much & I’d very much love to play mix + match! Oh my goodness I feel like a kid all over again, getting incredibly excited over multiple bags! Special thanks to Hazel too for her kind hospitality, I literally felt like a princess!
I’d never imagine I would actually be a Carlo Rino type of girl at heart, the designs are very on trend & extremely vibrant too, perfect to kill any form of Monday blues.
The range here is so extensive even I am spoilt for choice? Please don’t ask me which is my favourite, because my heart is such a big one it can accommodate as much as it feels like! Let’s check out Carlo Rino’s Poise Poish Collection shall we?
I used to love bags in basic colours in the past, then as my hair got lighter throughout the years, I felt my bags should be a reflection of my bold personality too! I’m totally embracing more colours these days since they’re a lot more fun to play around with. You could keep your outfit basic & jazz up the look with these cute babies!
From day bags to clutches, the variety is endless. Depending on your mood for the day or the event you’re headed to, there’s a quirky piece of even a classy piece for the unique you. When it comes to bags, I’m more of a practical person. I can never fit anything of mine into clutches no matter how pretty I find it, yes I know I’m missing out. I like a bag where I can stuff all my essentials in & Carlo Rino certainly does not disappoint me in that department.
Beautiful clutches aplenty, how about one in a shade of coral? Maybe I ought to learn to carry lesser things so that I can complete my outfit better at night. Big bags & that little black dress do not quite go hand in hand!
Now look at this! So perfect for daytime errands & kills all your Monday blues. The strap is also sturdy enough just in case you need to stuff your entire house inside. No I’m not exaggerating, because I’m really the sort who needs to have EVERYTHING in my bag.
This studded clutch bag I’d definitely love to carry for a night time for an edgier look or even fora night out with the girls. I love how it’s in a beautiful maroon shade, a colour that doesn’t exist in my shelves currently.
Alas, the sweetie pie in me emerges with this Pastel Pink Chain Bow Bag! The placement of the ribbon makes it so adorably cute I want to use this bag on a first date. It comes in an assortment of colours (yellow/black/hot pink), now I really don’t know how to pick!
Look what Carlo Rino surprised me with at the end of my window shopping experience? Goodness, you guys are too sweet I want to hug all of you so bad! Seems like you’ve been observing my likes very closely & gave me the bag I’ve been eyeing the whole time! Thank you so much Carlo Rino, I had an awesome time & can’t wait to be back here again!
I’d be doing an outfit post with my chosen bag pretty soon, look out for that girls!
Carlo Rino is located at all BHG, Isetan, Metro & OG Department Stores, Jurong Point #02-30, Northpoint #01-11 & Takashimaya Level 2.
Snippets of the past weeks. Sorry I haven’t been too active on this space as of late, my schedule’s been jam packed with shoots & the AFF. If you’d like real time updates, do follow me on instagram @agrivelt .
Anyhow, I came across this cute online store selling some quirky accessories. I’m wearing their Birdy Necklace & they took notice of it & made me this incredibly adorable collage! Thanks Clairine & Gabriella, you girls are so sweet! Check out Electicco today!
If you haven’t already known, I’m open to shoot for blogshops these days, it’s a whole new experience altogether. You can drop me an enquiry at firstname.lastname@example.org ! Okay back to the topic, I really emjoy shooting for TagStyle. I feel like Barbie wearing all the pretty clothes!
Let’s take a look at some of the pictures on set. The lady boss is a real sweetie pie she gets me my daily dose of latte before I suntan in her apparels.
Then there’s the 7-course dinner at Tien Garden with Estelle & Esther. For the first time ever, I was the first to arrive & because my tummy was growling so bad, I had the Black Pepper Venison Meat all to myself. Totally oblivious to everyone’s arrival afterwards since I kept myself busy licking my platter clean.
The Almond Coffee Pork Ribs comes up next. Honestly, I’m not quite into pork ribs, but after giving this dish a chance, I was sold. It was unlike any other pork rib dish I’ve tried. The meat was very succulent & rich in flavour. What a surprise! This is one dish I highly recommend. It was so good we had it wiped out within minutes!
Even though I strike off veggies completely, I incorporate plenty of tofu into my diet. Who dare says I’m full of toxins now? This Braised Bean Curd With Minced Pork definitely didn’t disappoint. I even drenched the gravy all over my rice.
Oh my goodness, every dish just keeps getting better! I’ve always had a big heart & appetite, so it’s impossible for me to settle for one favourite. Let’s see how the Sauteed Prawn with Pumpkin Sauce fares!
The only thing that I’m unhappy about is that serving size might be a lil’ too small for someone like me. I eat quite a substantial amount, & now that my platter’s clean, I sit here yearning for more. Oh why do you torture me this way? Yikes my gluttony behaviour is starting to emerge.
Here comes the highlight of the dinner! Hello Tien Garden Special Salted Egg Crab, where have you been all my life?
My first attempt at prying open the crab, in fact I don’t think I’ve ever done it before in life. Usually my lover would do the dirty for me, but since today I’m all alone, I’ve decided to get the work done! I’m such a newbie at this, even Estelle kept a distance for fear of things flying towards her direction!
Om Nom Nom Nom, please don’t drool on your keyboards while you watch us eat!
Next up, we have the Specialty Preserved Eggs With Spinach. I had the other girls wiping out this dish for me since I refuse to befriend the greens. According to them, it was pretty good & it’s such a shame I missed out!
Last dish for the night – Tien Garden Braised Seafood Bee Hoon. Wow Tien Garden, you have truly impressed me with your culinary skills. Seems like this won’t be my one & only visit. As the saying goes, if one restaurant is splendid enough, it doesn’t matter where it is, because I will travel across the sea to get a piece of it.
Thank you Erik & Sharon for the invite & being such gracious hosts. I know I’m not one customer easy to please but everything today has gone beyond my expectations!

Sorry I took a while to update! I was shuffling around town all week to complete my errands. I guess turning 25 has made me a whole lot responsible & efficient! Now that everything’s done, I’m back to feed you guys with a gazillion pictures!
And so, my birthday this year kinda seemed like a never-ending one with bouquets aplenty, plus it was the first time ever in my life, to eat so many cakes within a week. Are all my loved ones trying to fatten me up? Even after a week, I was like Hell Yeah, my birthday’s not over yet! PS, thank you Irene for this beautiful bouquet!
First surprise was the birthday countdown at Sky on 57. Was too caught up eating I forgot a shot of the Foie Gras Xiao Long Bao. That dish was freaking awesome!
The second surprise was the dinner at Skyve skilfully planned by my babysaurus. Oh you sly creature, how could I not love you even more?
Here we are at Skyve, can’t believe this was where my secondary school was located in the past! Clarissa & I used to get into all sorts of trouble wherever we went!
I was literally dragged out of bed for this impromptu dinner & I was incredibly cranky at the start. Usually, he’s not the type who’d want to dine out but today he was extremely persistent. There goes my beauty sleep! On a side note, thank you ClubCouture for keeping me casual chic in this Rachell Pink Top. I love it so much!
I thought it was just a normal date – just me & my lover. To my surprise, my dear friends started appearing one by one! Too sweet!
Anyhow, we were so hungry we almost ordered everything on the menu! But really, the starters are so damn delicious we pretty much ended up sharing everything.
Seems like the lighting over here’s very suitable for pictures after pictures. That explained why all of us couldn’t seem to get enough!
The birthday cake was so meaningful I couldn’t even bear to slice a piece of it! Slicing it would mean slicing us apart, boohoo! Guess who did the dirty deed by disfiguring our faces with the knife? My mischievous sister Rah Rah!
Thank you everyone for putting aside all your busy schedules & being a part of my 25th birthday celebration. I feel so blessed to have all of you around I want to plant kisses on all your cheeks!
Can’t be any happier with this special birthday gift surprise from Churp Churp too! Aww you make me blush!
Here comes the third surprise over at Pete’s Place.
Honestly, I thought it was just a dinner meet-up & catch-up session. I was not expecting a mini Tiramisu Cake & a birthday song & a bottle of red wine which Dionna ended up finishing! Alcoholic!
Thank you everyone for making me feel so loved! However, that’s not the end of my birthday celebration. Stay tuned for more!
Let’s see what I’ve been up to as of late. I’ve been quite the supermarket bandit raiding meat off the shelves. That’s also perhaps the reason why I’ve been so grounded at home & blogging consistently too! I consider that a good thing. I hope that clubs haven’t missed me too much, this is just temporary, I’d be back!
Aside from that, I did a couple of fittings over at ZARDOZE where I get to don all these beautiful gowns. I feel like a million bucks already!
Springtime signifies the promise of a new start, the genesis of a fresh dream. Leave the disappointments of yesteryear behind, trusting that the challenges have made you better, stronger, wiser. Run the race looking forward to your end goal.

And we decided to cut the princess cake back at home. It was such an impromptu decision I didn’t have enough time to clean up my place. That explains the mess, but the company I had didn’t seem to mind one bit!
The idea to wear sky high heels at home was the best idea I ever thought of. Now we’re the same height as the guys or maybe even taller. All in the name of glam, the sad thing is I have an insane amount of sweeping to do afterwards though.
Doesn’t my birthday cake look incredibly beautiful? Plus it goes so well with my bouquet, man I feel like a real princess. It’s funny how as I age each year, I want a cake that reminds me I’m still a child at heart.
So overwhelmed with love! I couldn’t be happier that everyone’s here to celebrate with me & so appropriately dressed for once. Trust me, all of us have gotten too close for comfort, it’s actually super refreshing to be in anything other than casual wear. It’s almost like I’m seeing new faces!
Oh shucks this cake was such a challenge, it’s so pretty I couldn’t bear to destroy it. Where should I position my knife?
Way too much fun seeing the guys posing with their heart-shaped sticks, especially when they clearly dislike pink. Evil!
Everyone else helped in dismantling the cake eventually, phew what a relief!
Rah Rah decided to do a sneak attack on me & we all ended up bursting in laughter!
Yes my hair’s gotten blonder than ever & I can’t describe how much I love it! I’d share with you how its kept in such good condition despite letting it go through so much trauma. Stay tuned!
Birthday dinner at Dozo. Prior to this, I’ve had an oxygen infusion done & even got my puffy eyes rolled.
Thank you Beauti Instinct for making me look so incredibly radiant & flawless! I can’t imagine how my wedding preparation would be.
Thank you everyone for taking time off your busy schedules to make this day happen, I’m touched beyond words. And because it was my day, being fashionably late didn’t result in any black faces. Phew!
My dear friend Junhao even got me some anti-hangover tonic just in case I wake up feeling horrible the day after Better gulp it down fast before I head to the clubs! Nobody’s gonna let me off once I’m there!
Daniel was such a professional photographer as usual, he was so over overwhelmed with snapping photos after photos he barely ate! Drop me an email if you’d like his contact, his works are AMAZEBALLS.
We couldn’t stop gushing about how beautiful the food presentation was & when we finally got to eating it, we literally went to heaven. I’m definitely coming back for more next time!
Hello my dark-haired beauties, you’re both looking so drop dead gorgeous in those red sexy numbers I can’t take my eyes off you!
Damn I just can’t seem to stop munching on small bites even while talking. I thought it only happens in my sleep.
Unwrapping a couple of my presents in excitement while waiting for more food to be served!
Absolutely adore the Karen Walker sunnies! Even though pink wasn’t quite my colour in the past, I’ve slowly grown accustomed to loving it.
With my favourite secondary schoolmates! Can you imagine it’s been THAT long since we’ve known each other! I wonder how our teachers would react seeing us now? I used to get into all sorts of trouble back in those days & Clarissa was my accomplice!
Alright, let’s spread the love & take some group pictures!
Way too many photos & I haven’t even gone to the cake-cutting part. Promise you in two days, meanwhile I need to work on some blog advertorials!
