Welcoming Fall 7 launched !

Shop at http://www.agneselle.com !

i love this midi dress so much that i kept it in all colours :) Made of neoprene fabric and super comfy !

c

I kept this skirt in Emerald and Blue colour because i find the colour combination more unique. But if you want a safe choice , you can opt for the white one.

d

My favourite skorts. I had Adelene in Black which was launched last year so i kept this in Magenta and blue for myself ! Goes well with the ballerina top and crop top :)

i

If you ask me , i prefer the mint one more than the yellow one. Ironically , i prefer the yellow colour for the skirt though lol.

k

Needless to say , this crop top is a MUST HAVE. I always pair it with my worn to death White overlap neoprene skirt launched in August !

h

This weekend was a tiring weekend but an awesome one with my gfs. Met up with my Korean language classmates and Yunmi for dinner at Resort World Sentosa Insadong Korea Town and then to Teo Heng for some K session. The Insadong Korea Town was a tad disappointing . Expected much more after seeing the facebook page but it is just a food court serving Korean dishes. Price was very expensive but food is not bad. The Rabokki is definitely worth it at $9 though. Portion was big and spicy. It is mixture of Korean instant noodle and rice cakes.

Also ,  i received my belated bday gift from Elaine because the shipment was delayed for 2 months.

Perfect Curl by Babyliss Pro

This is really sooo convenient and especially for noobs like me who doesn’t really know how to use a curling tong. Damn fast.

Anyway i tried using it on a section of hair. I didn’t apply any serum after curling it so my curls in the pictures below may look abit messy.

Very convenient. But don’t put in a thick section of hair because it can get a little bit tangled when the machine rolled the hair in. I can’t wait for my hair to grow longer so that i can curl my hair ends using this curler. Looks strange with the curls when my hair is just up to my collar bone.

Pictures below are taken after the curling. No serum was applied.

After curling it , you can apply serum so that the hair looks less fizzy and dry.

Thanks to Salon Vim , my hair is always well taken care off with the Keratase products. This serum is definitely my favourite !

This serum is specially used to manage Dry and Rebellious hair.

My hair is getting drier because of weekly styling for Agneselle’s photoshoot. My hair turned “cripsy dry” after all the hair sprays , hot iron curling and braidings. Looks nice but it did alot of damage to my hair. I cut my hair short in May because of the dead dry ends. Cant wait for my next Keratase hair treatment at Salon Vim for a smooth and manageable hair again.

Oppa will be going back to Korea for a week in Oct and i am gonna buy some stuff from CJ mall online and send it to his brother’s house. Overseas shipping costs KRW 25,000-35,000 but local shipping only KRW 2,500 ! And he is going to bring back to SG for me when he comes back. Thank you Oppas !

Here is one of the thing i wanna buy but not available in SG :(

Eye brow stencil. I am a right hander and i always have problem with my left brows because of that. So im getting these at only KRW 1,500 !

My body and mind is feeling so exhausted cos of my 3-4 hours block sleeping time.

Friday was a SUAY day. A series of freak incidents happened. Infact a total of 4 freak incidents happened within a time span of 4 hours before the photoshoot till end of photoshoot. I have never been sooo unlucky in my life before. Really suay siao.

Unlucky things aside.

I MISS MY OPPA !

Skyping everyda without fail. My body clock is abit haywired now. Sleeping from 4am-8am and then at night 7-10pm. So i can skype with him after his work. SG time is 6 hours ahead of Netherlands.

Screen Shot 2014-09-05 at 1.11.26 AM

He seems to lose abit of weight but i lost and gained back !

Had photoshoot at Fresh Fruit Lab Cafe located at Changi Road (Near Kembangan MRT). It was owned by one of my long time blog readers. At first when i got to know about this cafe , first impression was a fruit cafe or a cafe which sells fruity stuff. But i was wrong. Lol. But the cafe do sell fruit juices and beers too.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Before the shoot start , Jaz (lady boss) served us some fruit teas and ice water. Interesting part is that the ice water is not just ICE + WATER. She soaked fruits such as cucumbers , lemons , strawberries and mint leaves. So it is actually very thirst quenching and refreshing to the taste bud after a heavy meal.

Another interesting thing is that you are drinking from a measuring flask , not a normal glass cup. Interesting concept.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here’s our fruit teas.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

After the shoot , Jaz served us lunches and we all love it .

Especially the Fish and Chips , Prawn Aglio Olio and Steak. You have to have these 3 dishes if you are there. I love the burger too but just that i have been eating toooooo many burgers lately so i didn’t eat much of the burger that day. I get abit scared when i heard the word “Burger” . I didnt take any pictures of the Prawn Aglio Olio because before i can whip out my camera , my dad already scooped up a big spoonful of pasta and prawns. Lol.

I have been shooting in cafes for the past 1 month and OMG i am gaining soo much weight from that. Some of the cafe owners not only provided me the space but food as well. Thanks for feeding me fat lol. And i can train my phototaking skills. I think my food photo taking skills improved alot liao leh.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Thick and juicy beef patty for the burger.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Thick and juicy steak.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Kinda curious , so i asked Jaz why is it called FRESH FRUIT LAB ?

Well , fruit elements are infused in the dishes. Such as fruit salad , ice water soaked with fruits and cold pressed fruit juices that are served in test tubes to clear your palates after your hearty meal.

The burger was served with fruit salads.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Salad for the steak was drizzled with some blueberries. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I already started using my bottle !

I have an extra brand new bottle for sale. My friendly supposedly to help me buy the essential base from HERA counter at Lotte Departmental Store but i think there was a language barrier between the counter lady and my friend. The lady gave her the foundation instead of the essential base. My friend never check and paid for it.

So i have an extra bottle of foundation. Price is KRW 55,000 (see 2nd pic below for the price indicated on the box) which amounts to SGD $70 (according to the credit card charge). If you are interested in buying it , contact me at dancingsugar@gmail.com. Selling at $70.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The Magenta crop top and skorts are coming up soon ! Crop top comes in Magenta and Navy. But i love the Magenta one the most !

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It is 1am now and i need to skype with my OPPA !

Good night and have a good weekend !

Last week , i went for my 2nd laser toning session at Aeon Medical and Aesthetics Clinic. Do you know why most Korean ladies have really good skin especially the celebrities ? Most of the girls take very good care of their skin and are very disciplined when it comes with facial skincare. And as you know , aesthetic clinics can be found anywhere and everywhere in South Korea and they are very easily accessible. One of the treatments  most of the girls did is Laser Toning. Some of my girlfriends do that once every week or once every fortnightly. Dr Kim 김지효 is a Korean aesthetic doctor and sometimes he does share with me some tips to maintain good skin.

Before i start the laser toning session. Elena cleansed off the make up from my face.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

My face looks really clean after cleansing. I did not edit my face or skin ( that’s because i don’t know how to edit ) and even myself also surprised that my skin looks even better  after all the treatments and my own skincare regime at home.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

After cleansing , a special lotion pack will be applied onto the areas where the doctor will perform the laser on for pore treatment. The lotion pack is supposed to be absorbed into your enlarged pores so that it can be targeted during laser procedure. Before the pack was applied, Dr. Kim marked out the affected area for the pack to be applied for more precision

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

After about 10 minutes, the pack was wiped off and i went into the laser treatment room. Dr Kim worked on my nose area first before doing the Clarity Toning on my whole face to even up and lighten the tone.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The procedure was painless and finished within 10-15 minutes.

After the laser treatment, I was brought back to the medical skin care room for another round of skin care by the Elena to cool and calm my skin. This machine also helps to brighten my skin tone at the same time.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A rotating medical LED light was applied to my face for my skin to absorb the essences from the mask better, reduce acne bacteria and rejuvenate the skin.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

After 20 minutes , the mask was taken off and Elena applied AEON Post-laser rejuvenation moisturizer (Total recovery cream) and AEON CC cream sunblock on my skin.

The whole procedure took about 1hour 15minutes and my skin looks really nice, clean  and radiant after the whole laser treatment.

I have issues with my weight for the past few years.

I used to be stick thin and weighing only 42-43kg due to stress and the maximum i went was 45kg. After i met my Oppa , i gained and ballooned to 51kg. He eats alot and i follow suit whenever we go out. Probably because he is very tall and guys usually eat alot. Because of the weight gain , my arms, legs, body and face looks “fleshier”. Because i have been thin for the past quarter of my life. I am not used to having chubby face and i missed the defined jawlines and “no double chin” face. I used to look more “3D” and features were sharped but the weight gain made my face looks abit rounder.  You can see in Agneselle’s photoshoot , you can spot a little double chin in some angles and pictures.

So i decided to go for Korean Thread Lifting at Aeon Medical and Aesthetics Clinic.

The threads are inserted under your skin (into the dermis) to stimulate collagen growth , causing the skin to “tighten” and lift in order to reduce double chin and give more definition along the jawline.

If you have done sutured eyelid surgery before , it is about the same. A dissolvable thread (PDO) was used for this treatment to lift the jawline and double chin. So the threads will dissolve over time . This effect will last about 1 year.

This thread lift treatment is suitable for people with mild double chins (not effective for severe cases) and people who want a more defined and lifted jawline. We all know that jawline reduction surgery is risky and painful , this is another alternative treatment to go for if you do not want to take the risk and extreme pain. But of course the effect will not be so dramatic and is only temporary.

I cleanse off my make up in the powder room (Except my eye make up ). Numbing cream was applied over my jaw and chin.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

For better absorption , a wrap was wrapped around the area. While waiting for the numbing cream to take effect for about 45 minutes , i enjoyed Korean snacks and tea in the VIP room and looking over at Scotts road.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

After 45 minutes , Esther cleansed the numbing cream off my face and i am ready to go to the laser room.

Before the treatment , Dr Kim will mark the areas where the threads will be inserted on my chin and jawline for more precision.

This was my side view.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

To avoid infection , my chin and jawline was disinfected. Some clinics used only alcohol swaps to clean the area but that was not enough. Chlorhexidine and Betadine was used to disinfect the area at Aeon Medical and Aesthetics clinic instead.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

These are the needles with threads that will be inserted under my chin area.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

They were all Korean threads and made in Korea. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here is an example how the threads will be placed and inserted into my skin to lift and tighten the double chin fats and for a defined jawline via lifting.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here we go ! The treatment started and i will say the pain level is about 3/10.

Because of the numbing cream , i can’t feel the needle poking into certain parts. Except those near the jawlines. Dr Kim inserted 24 needle threads under my chin and jawline.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Dr Kim is inserting the thread under my skin (above picture) and removing needle leaving the thread in my skin (below picture).

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The process took about 30 minutes at discomfort level of 3/10. But Dr Kim is really patient and kind. He is always asking and checking on me to make sure i am ok to continue.

After 30 minutes , all are done and below is the picture taken right after the thread lifting.

The redness subsides when i got home and just look pinkish (My skin is a bit sensitive so usually not so much redness after the procedure I am told). There was no swelling. I went home after the treatment. You can shower and wash your face after this treatment as usual. So it does not affect daily lifestyle at all.

I didn’t have any pain afterwards, only a little bit of tightness which Dr Kim says is normal for a few days. The redness subsided after 1 day.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It will take about a month after to see the effect and i shall post a picture after a month.

If you are interested in the AEON Korean Thread Lift Treatment, you can visit the clinic and asked about the treatment that I had done.

Agneselle.com is launching on 3rd Sept at 9pm !

Im gonna list some of my favourite.

I kept this dress in lilac and green. I paired it with sandals or my havi flip flops , carry a tote and ready to go out to meet my friend. The colour is vibrant and pretty so it doesn’t make me feel dressed up even though i am in flip flops. My favourite grab and go dress when i don’t know what to wear. Because the pastel colours are eye-catching enough and no need to spend alot of time to accessorize.

c

I am in love with white skirts especially trumpet skirts. It looks cute. The waterfall drape add in a little feminine and elegant touch to this skirt.

d

It is so hard to find the perfect ballerina neck basic top so i decided to make my own. I found it in some stores but the U neck is not wide enough. I kept them in all colours and they sure go well with any skirts ( printed or basic ).

g

Needless to say , racerback dresses are always a hit because it makes your shoulder looks slimmer. White and Pink are my favourite colours.

j

I think i have blogged before but i have many emails asking what kind of Hera products i am using and where to get them in Korea. You can get from their main flagship in Apujeong which is at Gangnam area. The flagship is big and there is their make-up academy. Near the huge MCM store and Givenchy store.

Here are my day care. Mostly hydrating range.

The Aquabolic range. There is the toner , emulsion , eye gel , gel serum and moisturiser. It takes the products to set for about 5-8 minutes before i can put on my make up . I like their hydrating range because of the texture. Not very creamy or oily. Rather smooth and glide on easily.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Night care. I have switched the whitening programe to the night because usually i am exposed to the sun in the day. So the whitening products are for the night. There is the toner and emulsion. Because whitening products tend to make the skin drier , after the emulsion , i will apply the Waterin gel serum and moisturiser from the Waterin range in the picture above.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here are my essences and supplments. I switch and rotate them.

I apply them at night after my facial sheet masks.

The Cell Essence and Cell Bio Cream goes together. If i use the cell essence , the cell-bio cream has to be used together for an optimal result. The cell essence really brightens up my skin and even my cousins and friends love this product.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Sulwhasoo overnight vitalizing pack and whitening serum. I love the pack because i can see my skin looks radiant and clear after i woke up in the next morning. It is also hydrating and has a very nice Ginseng scent. Feels like in a spa.

Sulwhasoo products are expensive and i only buy their serums and packs.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

As for cleanser , i am using Hera and Sulwhasoo whitening cleansers. The Hera one comes with small little beads and Sulwhasoo is more moisturising. For a better cleansing effect , i bought the cleansing glove from The Face Shop. Especially after my photoshoot , i need to cleanse my face and clean off all the thick make up.

Buying good products but you also need to take sometime to massage the products into your skin. Not just apply and smack them on like that. Usually i spend about 5-10 minutes applying them. Slowly massaging my face with the products and you can see that you skin looks better too.

Anyway , i hope this information helps those who are going to buy HERA products from Korea !

Last week , Fiona , her bf and i went to Kinsa Sushi at Ang Mo Kio Jubilee for dinner.
It was a family friendly restaurant serving Japanese cuisines and you can try unique sashimi such as flying fish sashimi. Unlike other japanese chain restaurants , you can expect better quality and not “factory-like” made sushi.

Here are the dishes we tried.

Kawa Ebi Karaage (Deep fried river shrimp)

This is very addictive and we keep popping it into our mouths non-stop. Taste like crackers and like a snack. Best to eat it while it is hot so it is more crispy !

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Edamame

It is slightly salted and fresh. Another addictive starter where i cannot stop popping it from the pod.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

To prove its freshness , it comes in stalks and not separated into separate pods.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Foie Gras Mizore Mushi ( Foie Gras Soup )

We gonna skip the chawanmushi and go for this instead. The soup is really clear and fragrant. Just like those clear chinese pork rib soup , the soup was clearly brewed and the foie gras was slightly pan-seared. I love this soup so much that i gulp down the entire bowl. Sooo yummy ! I will definitely go for this again next time. Gonna bring Oppa here and im sure he will love this.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Soo Gyu Don ( Waygu beef from Kagoshima , Japan )

This is dope ! Mix the onsen egg , rice and beef together and it tastes sooo great.
Goodness in a bowl. You will definitely go for 2nd round again. The beef was tender and not over cooked. The onsen egg adds in a little sweetness to the rice and beef.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Something i was waiting for.

Sashimi Moriawase ( Salmon Belly , Sea Bream , Swordfish , Sweet Shrimp, Scallops and Tuna Belly ).

Everything in this bowl was so fresh and sweet. I LOVE IT ! Especially the scallops and sword fish. The scallops were smooth and sweet. No fishy smell. Tuna belly and Salmon belly were thick and juicy. Looking at theses pictures made me hungry again.

 OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

If you noticed there are small little yellow flowers ?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

You can pluck the petals and mix them with your wasabi and soya sauce for a little sweetness. Yes they are edible flowers.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

You can try exotic sashimi at Kinsa Sushi such as Flying Fish and Clams. Their sashimi were flown here chilled from Japan instead of frozen to maintain its freshness.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Fried Seafood Roll.

Look at the thickness of the fried seafood in the roll. The servings were generous and for people who doesn’t like raw food , you can go for this roll. The salmon roe on top were abundant and the whole roll tasted really juicy. The sushi roll was neatly done.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Dragon Roll. 

I love Dragon rolls because of the avocados. It comes with Mango and Avocado tops. The prawn in the roll was crunchy to taste and fresh.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Special Aburi Sushi Platter. 

I love Aburi ! The top of the sashimi slices were slightly seared and bottom was fresh and juicy. My favourite goes to the Tuna , Salmon and Mentaki Scallop.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

And we ended the day with Homemade Mango Cheesecake. Cheese cake was nice and soft. Not very thick or clumpy. After a heavy meal , we don’t want something too heavy or sweet. This Mango Cheesecake definitely goes well.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I love the Sashimi , Dragon Roll , Foie Gras Soup and Gyu-don the most. Gonna bring my bf here when he comes back from business trip ! Need to go for the Gyu-don again.

S’mores Cupcakes ($4)
Digestive biscuit base with chocolate cake, topped with homemade marshmallow topping. The Marshmallow topping was so soft and smooth. I love this cupcake ! Marshmallows definitely goes well with the chocolate cake base. 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I love strawberry shortcakes and i am a big fan of strawberry shortcake. My bf took a long time to find strawberry shortcake for my birthday few months ago because he knew i only like and eat that. I have to have it every year for my bday. This is how much i love it.

Strawberry Shortcake ($6.80) -

Made with fluffy white sponge, layered with succulent strawberries & luscious vanilla cream.

Strawberry was fresh and these were baked on the day itself to maintain its freshness. Love the generous serving of strawberries. Bite every corner and you can find strawberries.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Salted Egg Yolk Cupcake ($4.20) -

Inspired by the salted egg yolk bun, this salted egg yolk frosting with custard centre  is the perfect sweet & savory treat.

Imagine eating Liu Sha Bao but the english version. Lol. The salted egg custard was not very salty and not too light. Just nice. Something unique because this is the first time i came across Salted Egg Yolk Cupcake. You know you see alot of Red Velvets , Cookies and Creams , Salted Caramel etc but you don’t really see the salted egg version.
