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!

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.

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!

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.

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!


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!

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


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!

Have a good weekend everyone! Stay tuned to my next update on my HK BIRTHDAY TRIP!


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.

IMG_2836b

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!
