Merry Christmas !

Can’t imagine that it is almost the end of the year. Time flies and can’t believe that im turning 30 next year.

And i just realized that i have been blogging for almost 10 years. I started at blogpost in 2006 before i moved to wordpress in 2008. Few years ago , my facebook newsfeed was updated with all my friends’ Uni activities , clubbing , parties and shopping buys before it moved on to newsfeed about their new work and relationships and then now it is updated with wedding pictures and their baby pictures. Time flies and some of my readers even became mothers. I just met some of them and we were talking about how they read my blog since their uni days and now they are mothers and they still read my blog.
We all have grown up so fast.

Alot to celebrate this season. Me and oppa are still trying to get used to referring each other as Fiancee and Fiance.

Also , i helped a friend of mine to find a place to propose in Seoul and helped him get a photographer who is my friend’s friend. Most people will propose at Nami island or at the palace. Usually those touristy places are crowded with alot of tourists and you can’t capture a good and private photo.

So i recommended him this ice skating rink with a roof top view of Seoul. No tourists and not crowded. Not many people know about this place.

So he proposed to his GF over here.

A friend of mine sent me this picture too. And i wanted to recommend him this place too. But…abit hard to get here if you don’t know how to get there or drive.

It was snowing heavily in Seoul and the mountains were all snowy white.

Congratulations to both ! They are such a lovely couple. Can’t post their photos here. Need their permission though.

Finally im going somewhere besides Korea haha. Can’t wait for my agency trip in Jan to Taipei.

And i just bought these coats for my Taipei trip in Jan and Korea trip in March. I didn’t get the black coat in the previous post because i got something similar already just that it doesn’t have the furry thing. Hmmm..im still deciding though.

I decided to get this wine coat instead because i have quite a number of black coats.

Stocking up some warm clothes in Busan and Singapore. So i do not need to bring heavy luggage and coats to Busan and also if i were to travel from Singapore , i also have some warm wear to pack.  Buying warm clothes in SG is very expensive so i bought mine all in Korea during sales. It is cheap and also the material is good and keeps me warm which is the most important.

Talking about all things K , i went for Korean eyelash extension at LushLashh  .

Wendy is very friendly and she suggested that B curl suits me better. I also prefer B curls. I used to go for C curls but i find them abit too vavavoom and i started changing to B curl after i had mine done in Korea. The lash technician in Korea always do B curl for me too. Lushlashh is located conveniently at The Arcade which is right infront of Raffles MRT . Call or sms them to make an appointment now. You can find their address and contact number on their face book page by clicking HERE.

I gained quite abit of weight lately so i’ve been trying to cook instead of eating out. If you read my earlier posts , Aeon just expanded and they are providing body shaping services and therapy too.

I am quite concerned about my tummy fats because i realized all the weight goes to my face and tummy.

So Dr Kim suggested Ultra Shape. It is an ultrasound treatment to destroy the fats.

The aestheticians used a strap to gather all the fats around my tummy and waist together. The strap squeezed and gather all the fats for optimal results.  The process was not painful because ultrasound was used to destroy the fats.

I was quite shocked seeing my fats after they strapped my waist and gather all the fats together. The aestheticians said that my fats (below) was very small compared to others they saw.

Dr Kim will mark on the areas before we start.

The machine used camera to track and for optimal accuracy.

Dr Kim performed the Ultra Shape process. Process took about 20-30 minutes depending on the surface area.

After the treatment , i will feel abit hungry for about 2 days and it is normal to feel that because selective fats were destroyed. It is a no pain , no recovery time and non-invasive treatment.

To be honest , i can see that my tummy because abit smaller after about 1 week. I felt hungry for 2 days and i try not to eat alot just because i feel hungry. This treatment destroy selective fats but you have to eat healthy and exercise too. Of cos , if you don’t take care , you will gain back those fats again after destroying them.

You can call Aeon Aesthetics and Medical Centre at 67332002 to enquire. Mention my name if you are making appointment or enquire on their services.

CNY is just around the corner. Time to make appointment for my laser and facial treatment at Aeon soon !

**psst…i have been cooking this whole festive season. Look out for Korean food recipe coming up soon !

Last week was beauty week !
Fell sick for a few days ( flu , sore throat and migraine ) and my skin was quite cui.

It was also time to do eyelash extension touch up at LushLashh which is located at Raffles Place.

At first i thought of touching up but i decided to redo the whole set. The last time i did B curl lashes so this time i decided to go for C curl lashes to create the “eyeliner” effect. It really saved me alot of time. I do not need to put any eyeliner. Now i just apply my BB cushion , eyeshadow and lipstick. Shortening my make up time can spare me extra 15 mins of beauty sleep !

I cannot remember what was the length i did. But you can ask the lash technician Wendy on the set i did. I trust her so much so usually i just tell her what kind of look i want and let her do it according to her own creativity. It turned out very well and i like it. I had a good sleep. It took only an hour.

It is really quite hard to find eyelash extension parlour in Raffles Place especially at affordable price. Lush Lashh Korean Lash Parlour is located at The Arcade #03-12. You can call or sms 85685268 to make an appointment. The Arcade is the building beside Chevron house and you can see it immediately after coming up the escalator from the MRT station to street level. Wah i miss the yummy fish soup at The Arcade. If you are going to have your lashes done , you should go to the 1st floor ( beside fruit juice shop ). The fish soup there is very nice. I had it almost every week when i was working at Raffles Place few years ago.  There is a promotion going on – $90 for unlimited single strand Korean soft lash extension and it comes with free touch up within a week.

My hair was abit dry these days because i did not blow dry my curls. On good days when im not lazy , i will blow dry it and the curls will look very nice and pretty but on bad and lazy days , i dont bother to blow dry it.

So i went to find my hair stylist , Joanne Cheang at Raffles Place to do a Korean hair treatment. This treatment is better than the Keratase one i tried. It is similar to the one i did in Korea. The hair will feel thick and moisturized. I can feel the volume. I did it once and decided to go for the 2nd time because it was good. It makes my curls look healthy and bouncy. I used to go to Joanne to have my hair done when i was working at Raffles Place few years back. Because she is very good with curls. If you wonder how come some colleagues or your bosses can come to work with nice curls and hair nicely set ? Some of them went to blow their hair as early as 7.30am. Joanne do alot of hair styling , treatment and coloring for alot of ladies working at Raffles Place. A private banker from my previous work place recommended her to me and that was how i got to know her and let her do my hair. The salon is at Chevron house. You can mention my name and she can give some discount.

Also , before the week ended , i went to Aeon Aesthetics and Medical Centre for another round of laser toning session. My skin looks really tired lately because i fell sick and wasn’t feeling well. Sometimes i was so tired that i forgot to do my daily facial masking. Luckily , i get to have laser toning and facials done at Aeon if not , my skin sure more cui. I need some skin rejuvenation.

After laser toning , i had post laser treatment and facial mask done. For more detailed information about laser toning , you can click on the Aeon Aesthetics and Medical Centre tag found on the right sidebar. I have reviewed on several lasers , facials and treatments i had done at Aeon.

Haha this was my before bed time photo.

Ok, gonna go to sleep now. Need my beauty sleep.

But before i do , i like both of this maxi dress at http://www.agneselle.com

Which one should i wear for an upcoming wedding dinner ? Hmmmm black or white ! I couldnt decide which one so i kept both for myself.

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.

LushLashh Korean Lash Parlour – The Arcade @Raffles place #03-12 Tel: 85685268

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.

DSC02463A

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.

DSC02466A

They are having promotions right now.

$90 unlimited single strand extension (Latest Korean soft lash)

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.

DSC02495A

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 😦

DSC02499A

Anyway , you can see the different with and without this primer. This is good primer for first time users because ..

  1. It is not sticky
  2. Easily absorbed
  3. Doesn’t give a disco light effect kind of shimmer
  4. Moisturizing and it is easy to apply your make up after that
  5. 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.
