I have been cooking every weekend for the past few weeks.
Haha quite happy that i took about 1.5 hours to prepare and cook instead of the usual 3-4 hours.
That means my skills improved right ?
Here’s the menu for last week.
Salad with apple + Chai seeds + Korean sesame salad sauce which i bought from Lotte Mart.
And Bak Kut Teh with mushrooms and lotsa garlic. Eh…i don’t really like garlic so i separate my own soup from Oppa’s. Koreans love garlic. But im not a garlic lover.
I am quite impressed by the Bak Kut Teh i cooked last week.
Didn’t expect myself to cook so well haha. I boiled the soup for an hour under small fire.
Whenever i am stress , i will cook haha so i can eat too. Cooking takes my mind of other things because i just focus on the taste and adjusting the seasoning. So my dear Mr Shin was being well-fed by me these days.
And last week , besides going for facial and laser toning at Aeon Medical and Aesthetic Clinic , i also had eye lashes done at LushLashh which is located at Raffles Place.

I had my Korean eyelash extensions done in Korea a month ago . And it is time to go for another round but now in SG. The done in Korea was very lasting and so i requested for the same to be done in LushLashh except that i want a few longer strands.
Here’s the before and after. What i like about them was that instead of using tapes to tape your eyelids , they used Coenzyme Q10 eye mask to rejuvenate your eyes as the lash technicians work on your lash.
I had a good sleep because the bed was comfy. I told Wendy (the lash technician) that i will tear at times because i have sensitive and dry eyes. So she dripped abit of eye drops before she started so that my eyes are well moisturized. So during the whole session , i did not tear at all. Yes even when i sleep , i will wake up with abit of tears.
Quite difficult to find a eye lash extension parlour at Raffles place area. This is right smack beside Chevron house which is good for office ladies who worked near that area. I will definitely go back there again because i feel comfortable there and the owners are very friendly and nice. They are lash extension lovers too and were customers to some lash parlours before they decided to start on their own because of their love and interest for eye-lash extensions.
Eyelash extensions do let me sleep abit more before i go to work because i do not need to wake up early to do much eye make up. Now i just put on BB cushion , eyeshadows and lipsticks.
I did B-curl lashes here. The one i did in Korea was also B-curl.
They are having promotions right now.

You can follow them in instagram to view the different types of lashes done at LushLashh (Instagram account Lushlashh).
Oh , here’s the mousse which i reviewed previously. Managed to take life pics and i think it is time i should consider a new camera. Very hard to focus with this Sony cam leh.
And this is a new primer which i have been using for a week already.
Espoir Pure Radiance Glowrizer.
I bought it from Espoir standalone boutique right at Seomyeon MRT. Eh…i cannot remember which exit was it. But it is right at Seomyeon. Quite hard to find Espoir boutiques around.
Espoir has really nice neutral colour eyeliners and lipsticks.
I was shopping alone (buying my friend’s stuff) and i saw this couple of times and quite tempted to get it because of the pretty “balls” inside.
After using it , i really like it alot. It is different from the HERA one as in this is more moisturizing because it contains moisturizing essences. So it is a beauty skin care + make up product. The lady in the shop explained alot to me in Korean but i was busy testing it out so i only heard about the moisturizing essences part lol.
*Saw that red mark ? A plastic bag caught fire at his bro’s home while me and his mum were in the kitchen preparing for Chu Seok’s lunch. I put out the fire but a speck of burning plastic piece from the plastic bag landed on the back of my hand and it melted and stuck onto my skin. I couldn’t wash it off because it actually melted and stuck onto my skin . Have to “scratch” it off and i ended up with a small scar 😦
Anyway , you can see the different with and without this primer. This is good primer for first time users because ..
- It is not sticky
- Easily absorbed
- Doesn’t give a disco light effect kind of shimmer
- Moisturizing and it is easy to apply your make up after that
- Subtle radiance .
Price tag : KRW 28,000
If it is your first time looking for a primer , this is a good one because it is easy to apply and also for lazy people because it contains moisturizing essences. You can get it from Espoir store in Korea. There is no Espoir in SG. I don’t seem to find it easily everywhere but if you are going to Busan , you can get it from Seomyeon ( near one of the MRT exit gantry ). Located beside TOP TEN shop and the exit that goes to Lotte Dept Store. I haven’t been to Seoul for 2 years already. The last i saw it was in Myeongdong. Not sure if they moved.
