COOK BOOK BISTRO & CAFE X FOOD TASTING

Took the time to check out the newly-opened COOK BOOK BISTRO & CAFE after a good friend’s recommendation. I’m usually quite the huge eater but decided to go easy on my stomach today as I’ve been a pig for the past week. Time to go healthy for a while, but I assure you not for long!

The menu selection here is extensive (ranging from Western delicacies to local favorites) & priced very affordably. Also, if you’re a fan of CRAFT BEER, this is the place to go! HAPPY HOUR’S from MONDAYS TO THURSDAYS, now don’t be shy, let’s cheers to that!

//3PM-7PM : CRAFT BEER $21 FOR 3 PINT//

//9PM-11PM : CRAFT BEER $28 FOR 3 PINT//

//MON & TUES : FREE DRINK & APPETIZER WITH EVERY MAIN/1 FOR 1 ON ALL NON-ALCOHOLIC DRINKS//

But for now, let’s have the CREAM OF WILD MUSHROOM & the GRILLED BLACK PEPPER CHICKEN THIGH first!

The food arrived quickly & being the hungry monster that I am, I wasted no time in digging in. I can be so barbaric at times. The GRILLED CHICKEN THIGH was done just the way I liked – tender & succulent. It was literally love at first bite. And what’s not to love when the portion is so generous! The CREAM OF WILD MUSHROOM was rich-tasting, my my my!

Did I also mention that the ambience here is great? It’s really spacious, it’s actually a perfect place to gather with your family & friends! Some days you want to get away from the hustle bustle in town & just chill out with your loved ones.

Ps, you’d be delighted to know there’s more promotions!

BIOSKIN X ABSOLUTE MIRACLE ESSENCE

Jetsetting 24/7 does stress out my skin, that I gotta admit. However, these days, being a frequent traveler has made me smart enough to pack the correct skincare for the correct climate & destination.

CIMG5228b

I brought along the BIOSKIN ABSOLUTE MIRACLE ESSENCE for my month-long trip. Like many other women, I care about pampering my skin especially even more while abroad, hence I always end up having the problem of over-packing my skincare. If you looked at my vanity bag in the past, you’d bawl your eyeballs out. Some days I need to treat my dehydrated skin, some days I need to firm up my skin. Well you know, women and their 101 woes. That’s why this came at the right time! Could I seriously say no to an ALL-IN-ONE SERUM that brings about such GREAT CONVENIENCE for women like me who’s flying constantly?

CIMG5198b

Thank you MATHILDA for sending over this amazing product just in time for my Europe trip. Do follow MATHILDA on IG @mathildakoh so that you won’t miss out on the latest promotions for BIOSKIN!

CIMG5226b

This HIGH-PERFORMING SERUM is the ultimate solution for RENEWED & SMOOTHER-LOOKING SKIN. Having used it religiously throughout my trip, I can assure you, you start to notice results one week into using it. However, if you have sensitive skin, I’d recommend you to use it once every two days. I really love how it clears away my dead cells day by day to REVEAL GLOWING SKIN in the morning when I wake up.

CIMG5219b

Prior to the trip, I even popped by BIOSKIN for their CELL FUSION FACE TREATMENT. The therapist mentioned that the combination of the facial treatment & the essence would give even better results. Thank you so much BIOSKIN for constantly showering my skin with tender loving care!

CIMG5151b

Alright, so going back to the ABSOLUTE MIRACLE ESSENCE, the reason why it’s so highly-raved is because it contains VITAMIN A to TARGET DEEP WRINKLES/ENLARGED PORES & all sorts of skin concerns. Perfect for someone like me who’s constantly under the sun & piling on makeup everyday. I don’t even want to think about having to deal with clogged pores & sun-damaged skin. Oh yes miracles do exist if you’re diligent enough to care for your skin!

CIMG5230b

In addition to that, with the VEGICAPS® UNIT DOSE TECHNOLOGY, each anti aging serum capsule keeps BIOSKIN’S ABSOLUTE MIRACLE ESSENCE stabilized until it is opened and controls the amount used per application, ensuring the properties of all the ingredients are kept intact and high-performing for the most optimum results.

CIMG5291c

It’s time to pamper your skin to the fullest & restore your youthful appearance! Grab your very own ABSOLUTE MIRACLE ESSENCE from BIOSKIN to experience the difference. It retails for $280 for a bottle of 50 CAPSULES.

Check out this special promotion extended to my readers!

SMS <AgriAME> to 8288 1133 to enjoy an ABSOLUTE MIRACLE ESSENCE (7 CAPSULES) + CELL FUSION FACE TREATMENT + 30 MIN SCALP & SHOULDER MASSAGE @ $38* ONLY!

BALI X FOUR POINTS BY SHERATON

Bali is always a good idea – be it with your girls or your loved ones. I would never say no to a chillax weekend – pool time is THE BEST you’d see why later. So much love for GARUDA INDONESIA for flying me over in style. Your plush seats made me so well-rested & ready to explore the city!

Also, a big shout-out to FOUR POINTS BY SHERATON BALI for hosting me throughout my vacation. I’ve always stayed around Seminyak area, so it was nice to check out KUTA for a change!

CIMG2125b

CIMG2127b

Alright I’d spare you from all the grandmother ramblings, let’s check in to FOUR POINTS BY SHERATON BALI already! PS, if you’re a foodie like me, you’d be happy to know there’s plenty of cute little eateries nearby. I especially loved the local fare here, it was SO GOOD! We also had a great time checking out the many hair salons & spas all within walking distance!

Isn’t the decor of the main lobby incredibly inviting? The hanging lamps from the ceiling ME LIKE! Just couldn’t resist taking countless pictures here, oops! Greedy me just had to have a double-scoop gelato, very-much needed for this hot climate. Thank you Awang!

CIMG2115b

CIMG2110b

Wasted no time in basking under the sun. What I really love about this hotel is the fact that I can literally jump into the lagoon pool from my balcony! The start of my BALI vacation looks promising already!

CIMG2001b

CIMG2040b

CIMG2004b

There’s a couple of room options, but if you’re looking to stay here, I highly recommend the direct pool access ones!

CIMG2030b

CIMG2027b

CIMG2020b

Not usually the type who wakes up early enough to enjoy breakfast, but the spread here is just simply amazing. Never mind if I need to sacrifice my sleep! As the saying goes – a happy meal leads to a happy mood all day! That’s me – my mood is highly determined by my tummy’s level of satisfaction!

CIMG2074b

CIMG1995b

Managed to squeeze in yet another pool time pre-flight! Yes there’s a rooftop pool too & it’s as beautiful up here! If only this vacation didn’t have to end so soon…

CIMG2044b

Thank you so much once again FOUR POINTS BY SHERATON BALI for your kindest hospitality. I had a splashing good time! Oh well, all good things must come to an end. Till next time, Bali!


RENEWME SKIN CLINIC

Hello from SEOUL everyone! I’m seriously having so much fun here exploring new places & pigging out obviously! Anyway, before I start on this lengthy post, I’m going to spam some pictures of yours truly just in case you’ve forgotten me! It’s been one helluva hectic month jet-setting all over, obviously this is going to take a toll on my skin. Despite treating my face with facial masks on a daily basis, it’s simply not enough to keep it at its tip top condition.

CIMG1103b

Back in SINGAPORE, I have BIOSKIN to pamper my skin with tender loving care, but being away for a month long, it’s inevitable to have some clogged pores & uneven skin-tone. Also the cold weather here has left my skin a tad dry, hence the need to seek professional help for a quick fix.

CIMG1084b

With so many clinics all around SEOUL, it really is a tough decision to pick one. I finally decided to check out RENEWME SKIN CLINIC because my Korean girlfriend highly recommended it. Judging by the way her skin looks, I’m pretty convinced this clinic would do wonders for my face too! I’ve always wanted to try out this PRP DERMASHINE which is also known as the VAMPIRE FACIAL. Don’t worry you’d get to see a gory image of me afterwards. Unfortunately, it’s not available in Singapore but rising fast in popularity all over Korea and The States. Since I’m here, why not give this a shot right?

CIMG1096b

Because good things are meant to be shared, let this vainpot be your guinea pig! Please allow me to share with you my experience and you’d be able to see how effective this treatment is. Not to worry, I’d be more than happy to answer your queries over email. Don’t be shy to drop me a love mail at agri_jan@hotmail.com !

Liaising with RENEWME SKIN CLINIC was a breeze. Even though it’s highly popular with the locals, their consultants are able to converse in excellent English/Mandarin. Here’s a big shout-out to SAEMMUL (their English consultant) for being so patient with my 101 questions & taking great care of me during my stay! Anyhow, I was able to make an appointment with the clinic on short notice. Definitely very impressed with their level of efficiency.

//VIP PICK-UP SERVICE//

Recently, RENEWME SKIN CLINIC started this VIP Pickup Service. They’re able to pick you up from your hotel & send you to the clinic. Lucky me! Not being able to converse in Korean makes it really difficult, this service saves me from the hassle of explaining to the taxi driver my destination. Plus, it really does make you feel like royalty.

CIMG1136b

CIMG1128b

CIMG1115b

Upon arrival at the clinic, I was greeted by friendly nurses who made me feel right at home. The clinic is furnished very simple yet elegant looking -just the way I like it.

CIMG1272b

CIMG1146b

Can’t resist a mirror selfie before seeing the doctor!

CIMG1140b

//CONSULTATION//

I had really wanted to get fat graft done for the second time, but unfortunately I’m an unsuitable candidate this time round. I’m definitely gonna start eating more so that I’d gain enough thigh fats! After assessing my skin condition, the doctor said the PRP DERMASHINE would be beneficial for me! DR. HA JI HYUN also recommended that I did SHURINK ULTRAFORMER III for FACE LIFTING/TIGHTENING & EXCEL-V LASER to ERADICATE PIGMENTATION. Yes I know it’s a sad truth, but as we age, our skin loses its elasticity & it might cause our cheeks to sag. I don’t know about you, but for me , I’m all for getting it fixed at its early stage.

CIMG1164b

Time to remove all my makeup & get ready for numbing cream! Pretty excited to not have to go under the knife and exit the clinic with a youthful look!

CIMG1171b

CIMG1181b

//NUMBING TIME//

I would be lying if I said it’s completely painless. Thank goodness I had their powerful numbing cream on for one hour. Men have no idea what we go through for beauty’s sake! Oh well, no pain no gain right?

CIMG1200b

The EXCEL-V LASER was completely painless, but I forgot to get a picture taken since this light treatment was overly bright! It was the definitely the most comfortable amongst the three!

//SHURINK ULTRAFORMER III//

SHURINK is the latest upgraded HIFU TREATMENT suitable for patients who are looking to get NON-SURGICAL LIFTING done & desire an OVERALL SKIN IMPROVEMENT. I’d rate the pain factor as 2/10. You’d feel some sensation on certain areas, just like tiny ant bites. As for me, it was mainly the jaw area that felt a bit sore during the process but the soreness goes away quickly too. I would say it’s a similar feeling to getting JAW BOTOX done.

CIMG1208b

//PRP DERMASHINE//

In summary, PRP DERMASHINE is HYALURONIC ACID SOLUTION mixed together with PLATELET RICH PLASMA from your own blood. It’s then INJECTED BACK TO YOUR FACE to STIMULATE COLLAGEN PRODUCTION & CORRECT YOUR SKIN FLAWS (enlarged pores/dull skin/rough skin texture).

Pain-factor wise, this was a 5/10 but still bearable. I felt more pain towards the cheeks area maybe because my skin is slightly thinner than most people. Just don’t think about the pain, think about how your skin will look all dewy afterwards!

CIMG1216b

CIMG1226c

Alright, so here is how my skin looks up-close. I know this sight is extremely terrifying ( all that raised bumps from the intensive injections) , but of course this is just temporary. But I did however notice my skin looks more PLUMPED & LIFTED immediately! Wow!

CIMG1237b

CIMG1238b

//SOOTHING CARE TIME//

The nurse did a SOOTHING MASK, LIGHT THERAPY & a CYROCELL TREATMENT to soothe my skin. Definitely not feeling sore anymore at this point! Also, it really depends on individual, some people take a slightly longer time to recover. Mine lasted around 3 hours, that’s why I was hibernating in the clinic!

CIMG1266b

Thank you RENEWME SKIN CLINIC for giving me an after-care kit. I was told to mask religiously for 5 days afterwards to aid the healing process. For best results, avoid alcohol consumption for a week & apply sunblock. Okay I sort of cheated and drank on the third day (don’t kill me), I was pretty paranoid but thank goodness skin was still looking good!

CIMG1270b

Four days after, this is how my skin looks (taken with my Iphone 6). Oh my goodness, never thought I’d be able to wake up to skin looking like that? Even my loved ones are pretty surprised by the results. It’s still me but I look and feel younger & definitely more refreshed! In fact, the doctor did mention, your skin will keep looking better day by day after doing the PRP DERMASHINE & SHURINK. Now I know why Kim Kardashian swears by this! I’m definitely more confident to head out without makeup these days! But if you really must put on make-up, you’d notice it glides on like a dream.

BIOSKIN X STEM CELL COLLAGEN DRINK

Like most ladies out there, I’m constantly on the lookout for new products to combat aging & look much younger than I really am. Of course with BIOSKIN’S monthly P2X/STEM CELL FACIAL, I must say my skin is really looking fine. But with that non-veggie diet of mine (it’s been 20 years), can you picture the amount of toxins I’ve accumulate in my body? Hence, it’s also highly essential to take a lot of supplements or stock up on those collagen drinks to maintain good skin & for overall good health.

bioskin1

I know there’s a lot of brands out there in the market, & I’ve personally tried a few. There were a couple of good ones, but you know how I am. I like things fuss-free, so anything that requires mixing (powdered collagen) it’s almost like a chore to me. And also, taste is another important factor! Have you tried those which has a really strong fishy smell? Those are the worst! But we drink for the sake of beauty despite how horrible it tastes! Are you guilty of that too?

CIMG2665b

Alright, long story short. When BIOSKIN launched their STEM CELL COLLAGEN DRINK which is 100% FORMULATED and MADE IN JAPAN, I was extremely excited to try upon reading their main ingredients. ASTAXANTHIN, FISH COLLAGEN PEPTIDE, PEARL COIX STEM CELL EXTRACT & HYALURONIC ACID just to name a few. And girls, just in case you’re concerned that this might lead to weight gain, fret not, this has no fat content at all!

CIMG2619b

It’s been two months since I’ve started on BIOSKIN’S STEM CELL COLLAGEN DRINK & believe me, drinking them religiously really does make a difference. And unlike the many I used to consume in the past, this tastes so good! No matter where I’m headed, I always make sure to pack enough in my luggage for my trip. I love it so much it’s become a routine to drink one bottle each night before I go to bed! Despite all that non-stop late nights while overseas, I still wake up to radiant skin each morning. #truestory

CIMG2672b

If like me, you’re looking to add a beneficial product into your beauty regime, you should give this a try for its amazing sun-protection & anti-oxidant properties! This was a serious life-saver during my sunny holiday in Bali! Thank you so much BIOSKIN!

BIOSKIN is currently having a POP UP STORE at ROBINSON JEM & RAFFLES CITY, be sure to check it out! They’re running an EXCLUSIVE PROMOTION for the STEM CELL COLLAGEN DRINK. Buy 2 boxes & get 1 box free! Don’t miss out all you vainpots!

And also, specially for my readers, BIOSKIN is extending this promotion!

CAPITOL PIAZZA X EQUILIBRIUM

You know how ever since I’ve been jet-setting around, I always feel so sleep-deprived the moment I get to Singapore. Despite being all weary-eyed, here I am at EQUILIBRIUM just for my babe Vil’s birthday! Can’t believe we’ve known each other for 10 years now, oh boy how time flies!

Alright, I shall not bore you with my ramblings. Are you ready for some food porn? Believe me, it tasted as good as it looked! Especially the risotto balls we had for starters, it was SO YUMMY I can see myself coming back for it.

CIMG0937b

CIMG0945b

CIMG0896b

On to the main course! When it comes to steak, I simply can’t share & this one right here was just done to perfection in medium rare, served the very way I like.

CIMG0935b

CIMG0948b

Dessert time! Don’t be deceived by its looks – this is not a cold cut platter. It is seriously one of the most interesting dessert platter I’ve had in my life EVER. You can mix & match yourself but my favourite combination has got to be the BACON JAM paired with the WHISKEY CARAMEL JELLY. I highly recommend this DELI DOLCE PLATTER!

CIMG0952b

Thank you Vil for such an amazing dinner! Let’s head back again soon pretty please!

EQUILIBRIUM is located at CAPITOL PIAZZA, #01-86.

I hope you enjoyed this short update! Stay tuned to my next post on my brow touch-up session with BROWTISAN! Have a good week ahead everyone!


HEADLINES HAIRDRESSING X MUCOTA SCENA

It’s official everyone! I’ve switched to a new hair sponsor – HEADLINES HAIRDRESSING. Not to worry, I’m still in good relations with my previous stylist & he’s fully aware of my switch. Now that I’ve moved, I can try out different hair treatments & see how beneficial they are for my hair. Alright JERRY, I’m counting on you to treat my hair with tender loving care from now on!

It’s time to give my hair a new coat of color for my summer vacation! It’s a special concoction because I told JERRY to surprise me! Are we all now excited to see the end result?

He finished it off with this amazing MUCOTA SCENA 3-STEP INTENSIVE. Prior to this, I’ve read up a lot with regards to this treatment & it’s apparently the holy grail of all hair treatments. No matter how much turbulence your hair has gone through in the past, all that would soon be history. This treatment is like god-sent, I can’t wait to wake up to silky smooth hair all day everyday. And the best part is that it lasts for 6 months. SAY WHAT?

My hair ends are fried from constant use of the straightening iron, oops! Let’s see how well this treatment works for me! In fact, JERRY mentioned with religious visits for this treatment, my hair will soon be glorious once again since it helps to prevent further hair damage & banish all those frizz.

headlines12

CAN I JUST SAY THIS IS THE BEST TREATMENT I’VE DONE IN LIFE SO FAR? No, I ain’t exaggerating. IT IS THAT AMAZING! I haven’t felt such silky smooth hair for such a while, so please don’t mind my countless shameless shots! Oh boy, I just know that I’m gonna be addicted to this MUCOTA SCENA 3-STEP INTENSIVE !

BodyPerfect X ULTRASONIC CAVITATION

Finally found the time to drop by BodyPerfect to banish my tummy fats & love handles after what seemed like forever. You have no idea how toxic my recent trip was, I was such a glutton I couldn’t resist all the Shanghai delicacies! To make matters worse, I was practically partying every night, it’s no wonder I’m bloated at all the wrong places! But not to worry, because BodyPerfect always keeps my body in shape. With ULTRASONIC CAVITATION , I can eat however I like without having to step on the treadmill literally. YES IT’S THAT GOOD!

IMG_3929b

To refresh your memory a lil’, ULTRASONIC CAVITATION is the FASTEST NON-SURGICAL WAY to SCULPT & CONTOUR YOUR BODY in a PAINLESS MANNER with NO DOWNTIME. It’s extremely effective in banishing those stubborn fats which no amount of exercise can help. I’m on my third session currently & that hourglass figure is really starting to emerge! Ooh La La! Let’s take a look at how my tummy looked way before I reached out to BodyPerfect for help! For that skinny frame of mine, that bulging tummy is clearly an issue. So now you know why I preferred loose fitting apparels all these while? Nothing could hide my insecurities better than that! Please don’t cringe! Check out the bulge below the belly button!

IMG_3918b

Alright, maybe it’s more obvious when taken from the side! Yikes!

IMG_3920b

Believe me, I wouldn’t be singing praises if this treatment didn’t work wonders for me. As the therapist worked her way through my love handles, I was grinning from ear to ear knowing that as soon as she’s done, I’d be having a more contoured waistline & of course a flatter tummy. Science is amazing baby & nothing can beat that!

IMG_4536b

Decided to add on the TRIPLE ACTION WRAP for even better results. I’m not usually this greedy, but with the upcoming beach vacation, I need to have a rockin’ hot bod pronto! This TRIPLE DETOXIFICATION & CONTOURING BODY WRAP comprises of a cocktail of detoxifying plants for STRONG LIPOLYTIC ACTIVITY. In addition, the body recovers its energy & vitality, leaving it with a healthy glow!

IMG_4544b

Unlike the CAVITATION TREATMENT, this TRIPLE ACTION WRAP is 15 minutes of pure cold sensation! I had my doubts too & wasn’t sure how drastically different my body would look after and oh boy do I hate the cold! But seeing the results afterwards, I was completely sold. What on earth is this sorcery? I am definitely doing this at my next session, for vanity’s sake!

IMG_4553b

With the combination of these two power-packed treatments, am I not one step closer to getting the body shape I’ve always desired? Thank you so much BodyPerfect!

IMG_4551b

Specially for my readers, BodyPerfect is offering a 20 MINUTES ULTRASONIC CAVITATION (worth $388) ABSOLUTELY FREE! Call 6235 7377 for your free trial! Don’t miss out!

MEAT SAUCERY X KL PHOTOSHOOT

I must confess, when anyone asks me to whip up a meal, I would break out in cold sweat. Because the last time I did it, my friends told me straight to my face I’m not suited for the kitchen. How disheartening! Of course, I’m not the sort who gives up easily & with much practice, restaurant standard food was no meat feat for this tough cookie! So Agri, how’d you go from total noob to master chef in such a short time-span?

IMG_8185resize

Alright alright, the practice part was far from the truth, & no I didn’t engage a last minute helper nor did I enrol in a cooking crash course. If you’re clueless about the ABC’s of cooking just like me & you’re in need to impress your loved ones pronto, MEAT SAUCERY can solve them all. In short, MEAT SAUCERY offers healthy, high-quality frozen meals that have been prepared with its revolutionary techniques to deliver top-notch quality food to you.

meatsauceryy

Even pricing-wise, they’re very reasonably priced which is why I keep coming back to purchase the AKETARE WAGYU STEAKS & PROVINCIAL FILLET OF SALMON! Honestly, I was never a fan of cooked salmon until I had the one here! It’s so easy to prepare, all you have to do is remove the contents from the frozen pack & heat it up! My favorite way to eat it is to slightly pan fry it over high heat!

IMG_8184b

In case you’re wondering, MEAT SAUCERY is not a walk-in restaurant but they however offer PRIVATE CHEF DINING services. The founder is so nice to organize this mini gathering for my girls to try out some the dishes I’ve been raving to them about! Our bellies were very happy at the end of it all, thank you so much! Prepare to feast with your eyes people!

BIOSKIN X KOGEN DETOX TEA

Recently, I’ve been approached by BIOSKIN to try out their treatments & honestly, I was really excited to embark on a journey with them to attain stellar-looking skin. They’ve been around a long time & I’ve heard so much raves about their latest BIO P2x ACNE SKIN TREATMENT.

You know how many beauty salons practice the extraction method & sometimes if not done properly, it leads to scarring. But over here at BIOSKIN, big hurray to no extraction because the BIO P2X does an even better job minus the pain. I admit I’m guilty of picking on my blackheads/whiteheads at my nose sometimes up to twice a week (I know it’s such a bad habit), but in all honesty, after seeing what the BIO P2X can do, I’m quitting this habit slowly but surely.

IMG_0377b

Long story short, it works like a vacuum & sucks out all the skin impurities. I can assure you it’s painless. Believe me, I was disgusted & impressed at the same time. Imagine witnessing your blackheads & whiteheads come off one by one, major eew! But I’m not complaining because my face is squeaky clean it’s unbelievable.

I’ve previously tried out a similar machine at the doctor’s office & found it really effective in regulating my skin’s condition (lesser breakouts) + tightening my pores. This also meant you have to do a lot of maintenance (mask everyday) at home because this treatment might be a lil’ drying, But of course over at BIOSKIN, they complete this treatment with a rejuvenating facial so that your skin is fully hydrated. I felt truly relaxed during the treatment & even fell asleep halfway through the face massage!

IMG_5384b

When it comes to facial treatments, results matter a lot. You’d be happy to know there’s no downtime for the BIO P2X. With all the impurities drawn out, it makes makeup application so at ease & much longer-lasting. I’m glad the BIO P2X really does make a significant difference & looking forward to more sessions to attain Korean-looking skin. Thank you so much BIOSKIN!

Good news everyone! BIOSKIN is extending a SPECIAL PROMOTION specially for my readers! SMS < Agri_P2X> to 8288 1133 & enjoy BIO P2X + SCALP & SHOULDER MASSAGE + CELL RENEWAL CREAM (30ML) @ $38. (T & C APPLIES)

Also, I’ve started on a detox regime as of late. Don’t be mistaken, my main purpose is not to lose weight but rather to promote good health because of all the toxins I’ve been eating. Sometimes I do face the problems of over-eating & ending up with a bloated stomach. Super unglam I know! That’s when detox really helps! Also, I know for a fact that consuming red meat in large quantities is not good.

IMG_7554b

I’ve been trying out this KOGEN DETOX TEA by BIOSKIN for 5 days.When you go on full detox, your system clears out your body’s toxins effectively. And that’s exactly what I need because honestly, I’m full of poison inside.

IMG_8242b

KOGEN DETOX TEA is a FERMENTED HERBAL TEA ENZYME POWDER that HELPS IN DETOXIFICATION, STOMACH GAS REDUCTION & CONSTIPATION. It is made from 54 types of organic vegetables, fruits, weeds & yeast. Basically all the healthy stuff I definitely won’t put inside my mouth, but in powder form, I can accept.

IMG_7548b

I usually take this right before bedtime. Actually, due to my petite frame & also because my main purpose is not to lose weight drastically, I’m not required to complete a pack a day. Hence I always just do half sachet each time. See, it’s really easy to make!

I’d be heading to the toilet to let it all out (of course not like diarrhea don’t worry). So far, I haven’t experienced any tummy ache & really loving how my tummy is getting flatter day by day. I no longer have to feel so conscious in tiny cropped tops for my advertorial shoots!

IMG_7547b

Thank goodness for KOGEN DETOX TEA, I don’t have to worry about having a dragon’s appetite. Alright now, have a good week ahead & stay tuned to my next update on MEAT SAUCERY!


BROWTISAN X EYEBROW EMBROIDERY

Recently people have been telling me ‘Oh Agri, your brows are so on point, tell us your secret!’ & it’s been making me grin from ear to ear! No it’s not that I’ve changed the way I drew my brows. As you all already know, I’ve gotten eyebrow tattoo done previously months back & the color has more or less faded because I haven’t gone back for a touch-up. I didn’t hate it, don’t get me wrong. It’s just that I’m always open for different types of treatments (spoken like a lab rat), because you never know which one suits you best until you’ve tried it all.

I’m all about looking younger than my real age, & fuller-looking brows’ the way to go for a more youthful outlook. Unfortunately, with eyebrow tattoo, the result is not as ideal if you decide to have a thicker design especially close to your eye sockets since it penetrates deep into the dermis. Hence, EYEBROW EMBROIDERY is the way to go for STROKE BY STROKE PRECISION! So there you go, my secret is revealed! Don’t say I never share!

IMG_7265b

Here I am at BROWTISAN – also my favorite go-to place for sexy cat-eyed lashes. Don’t you love how luxurious the interior is, you can’t help but feel like an ultimate princess right here! Let’s take a look at my brows with no makeup on them!

IMG_7262b

Here’s a clearer visual taken with my Iphone 6! Aren’t they a lil’ thin & sparse-looking towards the end? Not forgetting what a messy state they’re in!

IMG_5409b

Alright let’s get started & get those brows numbed for a good ol’ 20 minutes! If you’re afraid of pain, you can have it on slightly longer! Fret not my dears, COCO is extremely gentle. If at any point you feel discomfort during the embroidery session, she will apply more numbing cream for you!

IMG_7166b

Check out my brows with one side drawn on & one side sans makeup! What a difference it makes!

IMG_7181b

And this is the customized brow design COCO created specially for me!

IMG_7189b

The very first time the founder COCO drew on my brows, I was so tempted to never wash them for a week. Just take a look at this, you’d feel me. I really don’t know how she does it, but I want those magic hands! In fact I’m not the only one who has this thought! She really is the MAESTRO OF BROWS! With above two decades of experience in the brow industry, I know I’m in complete safe hands!

IMG_7176b

IMG_7178b

When it comes to matters of the brows, she’s 101% attentive & will analyze your features before creating a design suited for you. Can’t wait for her to enhance my brows & make them look alluring! I opted for a dark brown colour so that I can just go over with brow mascara should I dye my hair in a lighter shade.

IMG_7199b

IMG_7204b

You’d think the process is pain, but it’s zero pain honestly. In fact, I was sleeping pretty soundly throughout the whole thing, & if you heard snores, that’s probably me!

Check out the final result! Done meticulously stroke by stroke to mimick real hair! Oh boy I love it already! Thank you so much COCO & BROWTISAN! My newly embroidered brows frame my face perfectly, I look awake even when I feel like a zombie inside. Now you know the wonders of perfectly sculpted brows! It’s totally normal for your brows to look darker than usual, but it’d slowly turn natural in a week’s time!

IMG_7182b

Here’s a closeup of my newly-done brows! Crafted with perfection- just the way I like it! Aftercare is extremely important if you want to have good results! You can purchase TEGADERM FILMS at WATSONS/GUARDIAN to protect your brows from touching water. BROWTISAN will also provide you with an AFTER-CARE KIT to apply over your brows thrice a day!

IMG_7742b

Here’s how my brows look 3 days later. No more eyebrow pencil needed, I’m ready to toss it away!

IMG_5617b

One week has gone by & my brows are looking even more natural than ever! Looking forward to getting them touched-up in two weeks time for a more lasting effect!

IMG_7338b

I don’t know about you, but I definitely like my mornings to be hassle-free! With BROWTISAN’S EYEBROW EMBROIDERY & EYELASH EXTENSION, I literally wake up looking 3/4 made-up! All I need is powder & lipstick before I head out. Easy peasy!

Yes EYEBROW EMBROIDERY may be considered a lil’ pricey to some, but it’s a really good investment especially if you’re the type who’d like to spend lesser time on makeup before work each day. Don’t you want to sleep a lil’ more? Plus it lasts about 3 years, so if you do the math, it’s pretty worth it! I have recommended a couple of friends here & they’re extremely satisfied with the results too. Thank you once again COCO & BROWTISAN for my beautiful set of brows!

HAIR VISUALS X ROLAND RESTAURANT

Always excited to visit my stylist KEVIN because he’s extremely meticulous when it comes to caring for my hair. I make it a point to visit at least once a month to keep those split ends at bay! Can’t complain because I’m in ultimate relaxation mode every time I’m under his care! The ANTI-FRIZZ MILK TREATMENT is my holy grail & it makes my hair so incredibly smooth & smelling good!

CIMG5824b

Decided to have a different set of colour this time round too, staying away from ash-tones for the time-being! This SUMMER BROWN is looking oh so fine, thank you so much KEVIN! He even did such a feminine blowout for me, I can’t help but feel beautiful all day!

IMG_4936b

Also, I’m glad my hair’s finally starting to grow out quickly recently. Long luscious locks, here I come!

Time for me to get back to a full day of meetings! Work has been pretty productive as of late & I’ve never felt more contented! PS, for the month of April, I’d be opening up my INSTAGRAM SLOTS at PROMOTIONAL RATES (because it’s my birthday month yay!) & if you’d like me to feature your blogshop, drop me an email at agrichicavenue@gmail.com !


ASTIQUE CLINIC X SEAFOOD PARADISE

With my birthday coming up real soon, it’s time to get my face camera ready 24/7. And with that, it’s time to visit ASTIQUE CLINIC to get another touch-up session for my under-eyes. I’ve tried multiple eye-creams in the past & splurged on countless treatments, but really nothing worked as well as this!

So what’s this magical treatment that I speak so fondly of? It’s really just UNDER-EYE BOTOX + FILLERS, & my doctor always injects just the right amount to give me youthful-looking eyes. If you’ve followed me long enough on this blog, you’d know I used to suffer from a case of huge eye bags. Of course, if you’re into the Korean trend thinking that eye bags are cute, good for you! But in my case, I hated them so much & would do anything & everything to bid them goodbye!

If you’re afraid of pain, you can always request to have the numbing cream on slightly longer. And not to worry, DR. MATTHEW YAP is really gentle! Here’s a picture of my under-eye area being numbed from a previous session. I usually have them on for about twenty minutes!

IMG_4642b

So here’s a comparison from way before I started on this treatment two years back & now so that you can really see how drastic the results are. Can you see how my eye condition has improved vastly & no I didn’t get any eye bags surgery done! I really wasn’t joking when I said I was suffering from a really bad case of humongous bags!

BodyPerfect X TUMMY SLIMMING

Recently, I have a growing obsession with cropped tops & we all know to look good in that, one needs to have a flat tummy. Oh boy, you have no idea how tiring it is to suck in your tummy for hours especially when you’re out & about! Are you guilty of that too? I love to eat, but I’m not looking forward to a prosperous belly look. That’d be a nightmare!

CIMG5412resize

That’s me sucking in my tummy right there under the scorching sun!

Yes the sad truth is, with age, my metabolism rate has slowed down & all I’m left with is a bulging tummy. It’s not overly humongous, but for my petite frame, people sometimes mistake it for a mini baby bump. Even with that, I’m not willing to quit my sinful diet, I’m really as stubborn as a mule. I’ve also tried exercising regularly, but that too didn’t help me. Is there any other way ever to combat those fats?

Been doing quite a bit of research online & saw that Hollywood celebrities were raving about this ULTRASONIC CAVITATION to blast off unsightly fats right before a red carpet event. Imagine how excited I was after knowing this machine is available in Singapore too! Honestly, I was very skeptical at the start, how could it be that with one session, you’d be able to see instant results? I NEED TO TRY IT!

IMG_1778b

Decided to make a trip down to BodyPerfect after a girlfriend of mine recommended me. She has attained a svelte figure after weeks of treatments with them & I can’t wait to achieve the same results too! I got a better understanding of the ULTRASONIC CAVITATION upon consultation. Doctors too have this machine but of course they charge an exorbitant price for that!

IMG_1816b

Basically, ULTRASONIC CAVITATION is a non-surgical fat reduction therapy minus the blood & sweat. The treatment targets inflexible fat deposits that you’re unable to lose through diet or exercise (perfect for someone like me). BODYPERFECT’S 50K ULTRASONIC CAVITATION offers a contouring solution to get your body in shape with no downtime & no scarring.

For my treatment, BODYPERFECT will be working on my tummy & love handles (yes I had no idea that was the real problem until they pointed it out) all at once. Let’s get started, shall we? They’d first put some markings on the areas to be worked on & in my case, those stubborn love handles.

IMG_1767b

IMG_1776b

IMG_1771b

IMG_1787b

The treatment itself was very comfortable, the therapist was very gentle with me. I’m not gonna lie, I was wishing it lasted even longer, because it really felt like a massage! In twenty minutes, I witnessed a more contoured waistline. Oh wow, I am never underestimating the power of science anymore. I think I’d be tossing out that gym membership very soon! Thank you BodyPerfect for restoring my confidence back! I definitely can’t wait to undergo more sessions & show you my final result!

IMG_1781b

Specially for my readers, BodyPerfect is offering a 20 MINUTES ULTRASONIC CAVITATION (worth $388) ABSOLUTELY FREE! You really have to try it to believe it! Call 6235 7377 for this awesome promo!

BodyPerfect is located at 541 ORCHARD ROAD, #21-03/04, LIAT TOWERS.

This is the time to pig out on all that unhealthy pineapple tarts & whatnots (the list goes on). I am definitely a sucker for all these yummy snacks, so can you picture how delighted I was when I was shopping at CLARKE QUAY CENTRAL MALL & spotted all these interesting Chinese New Year snacks? Needless to say, I had to stock up. Thank goodness for my beautiful babe Sheena, I could barely manage on my own!

CIMG5519b

CIMG5512b

Aside from that, CLARKE QUAY CENTRAL MALL will also be featuring their first ever TENANT FUKUBUKURO BAG.

BEAUTI INSTINCT X SUSHI KUU

Back at BEAUTI INSTINCT for yet another skin pampering session before Valentine’s Day & the Chinese New Year season. Not so much in need of a skin fix this time round since my problems have been somewhat kept at bay, yes I’ve been good & cutting those late nights down. It’s all about the maintenance now baby!

Time to get reunited with my all time favorite ROLLER TREATMENT. Unlike the past, I didn’t have to go really intense this time round since most of my deep scarring have been treated. Pain-factor wise, it’s really bearable. But of course, if your problem area is pretty severe, I’d say go intense to achieve even better results.

IMG_1262b

To refresh your memory a little, the ROLLER TREATMENT is really effective in ERADICATING SCARS because it STIMULATES COLLAGEN PRODUCTION. You can always look back at my old posts on BEAUTI INSTINCT to check out how bad my skin used to be & this was one treatment that really turned my life around. I was that girl with a face filled with acne & with BEAUTI INSTINCT’S help over the years, I am now feeling more confident than ever sans makeup.

IMG_1286c

According to your different skin concerns, the consultant will assign a couple of cocktails to target & treat your skin condition. This time round, I indulged in a mixture of GLYCOLIC ACID, TAURINE, GLUTATHIONE & HYALURONIC ACID.

IMG_1295b

My skin looks pinkish (particularly the cheek areas) & lifted immediately after the treatment. Spot the INSTANT RADIANCE too? The redness goes away in a couple of hours, don’t fret! Also, it’s best to avoid the sun or pile on sunblock for the next couple of days.

IMG_1318b

Here’s how my skin looks with a thin layer of sunscreen! No foundation or loose powder needed.

IMG_1261b

IMG_1331b

Alright now, it’s not a crime to be vain. Let’s love ourselves a lil’ more & give our skin a little boost for the upcoming celebrations! Drop BEAUTI INSTINCT a call at 6733 9149 to make an appointment & quote ‘AV’ for 30% OFF your ROLLER TREATMENT.

IMG_1327b

BEAUTI INSTINCT is located at 545 ORCHARD ROAD, #03-14/03-39, FAR EAST SHOPPING CENTRE.

Headed to SUSHI KUU for some comfort food afterwards. Japanese cuisine never fails to put a smile to my face & my honey knows best!

Have a good weekend everyone & stay tuned to my next update!


TCS AESTHETICS CENTRAL CLINIC

I’ve been waiting to share this personal post with you all for the longest time. I know some of you have been wondering why my chest area looks a lot  more well-endowed in my recent pictures. And no it’s not the works of a wonder bra. If you’ve followed me long enough, you’d be able to tell from my old pictures I wasn’t blessed in that area. It never really did bother me in the past, I used to be quite the tomboy growing up. But now that I’m at my mid-twenties, I want to fill up my fitted clothes (evening gowns in particular) better to feel more feminine & confident about myself.

This is not some rushed decision that I have decided overnight due to societal pressures or anything of that sort, I’ve really thought about it for a long time, I just wasn’t ready in the past but I am now.

I took the step to go for my first breast augmentation surgery five months ago with DR. EDWARD FOO at TCS AESTHETICS CENTRAL CLINIC. Prior to getting this procedure done, I’ve done a lot of research, read countless forums & consulted a lot of doctors. In all honesty, I was feeling scared because even though I had a high tolerance for pain, I wasn’t sure what sort of discomfort I was going to experience after the surgery.

//CONSULTATION//

tcs6

tcs5

tcs7

I went to check out TCS AESTHETICS CENTRAL CLINIC for the first time & I was quite blown away by the the view from the VIP waiting area. Plus, the clinic looked very inviting & I felt right at home. I was introduced to their medical director- DR. CHOW YUEN HO. After having a quick chat with him, he referred me to the surgeon DR. EDWARD FOO. It was all very interesting to me playing with the different sized silicone implants, after all I needed to test out just how hardy they were. I squeezed it, threw in against the wall, & no leakage at all. So far so good! I wouldn’t deny, it was really a lot of fun!

tcs8

tcs10

Back to serious talk, DR. EDWARD FOO spoke to me about the difference between the tear-drop implants & the round implants. No doubt the tear-drop implants would have a more natural finish, but I’ve read too many horror stories online of the implants moving after a couple of months, resulting in lopsided breasts. I decided to avoid all that drama (better to save the trouble from getting a revision done) & went along with round implants instead. Since I was also lacking in the chest department, I felt a round-implant would be more beneficial for me.

tcs11

I addressed my concerns to DR. EDWARD FOO.

1) I wasn’t looking to have a very drastic change, I  just wanted a natural-looking size that’s best fit my body proportion.

2) I wanted the best hidden scar possible.

And you thought all you had to decide on was the type of implants. Apparently, ROUND IMPLANTS come in 3 different types (MODERATE/MODERATE PLUS/HIGH PROFILE) & in 2 different textures (SMOOTH & TEXTURED). Decisions decisions!

tcs3

tcs12

Since I was so clueless, I changed into their ‘sizer top & tried out the different implants to get a clearer idea of what size I desire. After much consideration, I decided that I would go along with MENTOR 250CC SMOOTH MODERATE PLUS BREAST IMPLANTS to achieve natural-looking cleavage. And my choice of incision was above the muscle via the nipple areola. MENTOR is AMERICAN-MADE & one of the most reputable breast implants brands around, and it’s also comforting to know that they are part of JOHNSON & JOHNSON. Of course if you chose to go ahead with this incision method, the risk of capsular contraction is higher since no muscles coat over the implants.

DR. EDWARD FOO was very honest in telling me the pros and cons for the various incision methods & not once, did he try to hard sell me at all. Incidentally, DR. EDWARD FOO is one of the most prolific breast implants surgeons in Singapore, which explains his great bed side manners & honest approach.

I went for about 5 consultations before picking out a date for my BREAST AUGMENTATION SURGERY.

//DAY OF SURGERY//

Last few shots of my bare face & of course, my non-existent bosoms (yes flatter than you can imagine).

tcs1

tcs4

tcs2

I could barely sleep the night before, I was excited & nervous at the same time. I had questions in my head like : Would I feel like a different person after having boobs? What if I’m unsatisfied with the size? But believe me, all these thoughts would be gone with the wind as soon as the local anesthesia & mild sedation kicked in. The next thing I knew, I woke up to BOOBS 2 hours later. SAY WHAT? I was still in disbelief despite my drowsy state. OH MY GOODNESS, I SUDDENLY HAVE BOOBS & I LOVE IT!

//POST-SURGERY//

I must say, my new boobs felt extremely firm & they were really high up right after. I felt a really heavy weight on my chest & it took me a while to get used to. My chest area just felt tight for about a week. Other than that, I didn’t experience any pain at all because my implants were placed above muscle hence simple movement was not a problem. I had no bruising at all too! I was even able to shower one day after surgery with waterproof dressing over my areolas.

I even took it a step further by not touching raw food/seafood for a month in case my wound got itchy.

Of course, there were some instructions given by my surgeon that I had to abide by to ensure good recovery.

1) No lifting of heavy stuff or exercising for a month.

2) Take my prescribed antibiotics daily to avoid infection.

3) Sleeping in a straight position to ensure implants are in place.

I’ve heard how some people lose nipple sensation after breast augmentation surgery, but in my case, they feel more sensitive than ever. Phew!

I am really happy with my current cup size & can’t ask for anything more. I’m so glad to have chosen TCS AESTHETICS CENTRAL CLINIC to get my BREAST AUGMENTATION SURGERY done. I am really satisfied with my current cup size & can’t ask for anything more. Even friends of mine have commented that they look really natural. Thank you DR. CHOW YUEN HODR. EDWARD FOO for being so patient with me throughout the whole journey!

In my next post, look out for my post surgery pictures! But meanwhile, here’s a mini preview & in these shots I’m only wearing nipple tapes! The pushed up effect in a fitted dress is pretty damn impressive yes?

JAPAPON X BEST JAP DEALS IN TOWN

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.

HAIR VISUALS X HAIR TREATMENT

Back to get my roots touched up with my favorite stylist –KEVIN KOOL. It’s so nerve-wrecking because of the rate that my hair grows. Too fast too soon & ugly roots emerge way too quickly. Ugh. But I should stop complaining since every time I’m here, my stylist showers my hair with ultimate care. You’d think with the heavy bleaching done over the years, my hair would be in a terrible state. In fact, my hair is really stating to restore to its original healthy state & I’ve never been happier!

I absolutely love the ANTI-FRIZZ MILK TREATMENT specially customized to treat my unruly hair & leaving it silky smooth all month long!

No more unmanageable mornings with ugly bed hair or having a world war with my comb in smoothing out all those tangles. Hurray!

BEAUTY EXPRESS X SLIMMING TREATMENT

As I’ve mentioned earlier, I’ve got such a horrendous diet (strictly all meat all day everyday). How is it I don’t put on weight? In all honesty, the weighing scale has never gone cuckoo all these years, my weight has always remained at the range of 42kg-44kg. Damn I hate that girl, she eats like a pig & she doesn’t exercise (trust me I get this a lot). Before you start hating on the fact that I don’t seem to put on weight despite all that eating, you need to know I have real problems too, only they’re very well-concealed.

For the love of oily food, I sacrifice my precious body. For somebody with such a skinny frame, I do have the worst case of stretch marks & trust me, it’s quite the horror. Alas, sobbing gets me nowhere & problems like these (for stretch marks), working out in the gym wouldn’t be of any help. I’ve even started splurging on creams to lighten my stretch marks for two years now but nothing has worked so far. I eventually decided to let the professionals take over & see what they can do for me!

I’ve undergone three treatments at BEAUTY EXPRESS so far & the results are starting to show. You really need to have patience when it comes to slimming treatments, you can’t go for one session & expect a miracle to happen instantly. It’s all about diligence, baby!

IMG_0243b

Ready for the moment of truth? From afar, it really doesn’t look like anything but my friends were absolutely right about me not having a thigh gap. Check out the closeup girls! Lo & behold, these stretch marks belong to yours truly!

Seeing is believing! In fact, it looks even worse in person. To think I had to live with that since my teenage years! So now you know why I can’t be running around the beaches in nice bikini bottoms! It’s not that I don’t love the beaches, it’s just that with stretch marks like these, I can’t help but to feel conscious about my body. Every girl has her insecurities & this is mine.

All that aside, the treatment is absolutely safe & has no downtime. The therapists at BEAUTY EXPRESS are very skillful & you can definitely leave your worries behind.

Aside from noticing that my thigh area is now firmer, the use of light therapy during the slimming treatment also helps to reduce the appearance of cellulite & stretch marks. Plus I can assure you this treatment is 100% painless, in fact it’s so comfortable I often end up falling into a deep sleep. Really looking forward to complete my course of 10 sessions to achieve a more defined body contour!

DATSUMO LABO X JUMBO DEMPSEY

2014 flew by a lil’ too quickly but I’m now more than ready to take on a brand new year. Many apologies for the lack of updates as I’ve been jetsetting a lil’ too much for the whole of last year (all in the name of love). I’d like to get out of my comfort zone & be back in serious business this year.

With that, I’m so thankful to still have DATSUMO LABO in my life! Thanks for taking care of all my hair issues all these while, from top to bottom. If you’ve had unsightly hair concerns & you’re looking for a painless yet effective solution, DATSUMO LABO is the place to go.

I’m loving the ORCHARD CENTRAL branch, it literally screams right at home. So spacious I could sit here all day on the comfy couch & sip their in-house tea upon completion of treatment.

CIMG1595b

Today I just got done with my underarms & full legs hair removal. And I must say I did notice the hair growth on those worked on areas is way slower than before & also getting a lot fairer! Hurray! Soon I can bid the razor goodbye forever!

BROWTISAN X EYELASH EXTENSIONS

As you all know, I’ve gotten myself into the lash extensions craze. Who doesn’t love waking up to fuller looking lashes? I must tell you one thing though, once you’ve started, there’s no going back. Quality is of the utmost importance when it comes to lashes. I’ve previously gotten them done with Grace, it’s a pity she’s gone overseas. I’m not a good girl in my drunken stupor, those itchy hands of mine yanked off my precious lashes & they now look like a major shipwreck.

Recently, a dear friend of mine, COCO offered to get my lashes done for me & the timing has never been more perfect than this! So here I am at BROWTISAN, her newly-opened shop at DELFI ORCHARD which specializes in lashes & brows services. She’s been in this line for over 20 years, hence I have absolute faith that she’d give me beautiful-looking lashes!

CIMG3275b

Here’s COCO all professional at work with her amplifying glasses. There’s a variety of lengths to choose from, depending on whether you prefer natural-looking lashes or dramatic-looking ones. In one hour, I’d be waking up to doll-like lashes!

CIMG3300b

Check out the amazing work she’s done for my lashes! No more eyeliner & mascara needed, perfect for the lazy bum in me! It’s done so meticulously strand-by-strand I can’t detect any trace of glue. Plus, it’s weightless & turned out even better than I expected. Friends of mine even commented they’re extremely natural-looking even they had no idea they were extensions! Thank you so much COCO! I’m definitely trying out bottom lash extensions on my next visit!

Let your eyes speak a language of its own with BROWTISAN’S eyelash extensions customization this holiday season. You’d be sure to turn heads wherever you go!

IT’S A MERRY NEXMAS AT NEX

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.
