SGAhjumma was busy for past 2 weeks.

My mum was admitted to hospital for 3 days , a couple of claims to settle for my clients’ surgery (thankfully the claims were approved), my mum’s claims,  work and some spring cleaning to do.

I got a shock when i found like 5 SRJC PE T-Shirts in my wardrobe. OMG…the logos and colour still intact leh…and still so comfy to wear. Lol..Now i use it as a PJ shirt and wear it to sleep cos it is very cooling and soft.

Yup , so i was really busy. I got no time to take care of my skin and i find myself abit lazy to do housework lately. Working mums and working wives maybe also will experience this sometimes. Afterwork , you just want to go home and do nothing. Just lie on the bed , read the news , scroll your FB newsfeed , put on a face mask and sleep. I am soo tired and busy till late night until i got no time or forget to put on my face mask lor. Now my face already cui..2 clogged bumps on my cheek leh…Lack of sleep + not enough water + stress = dry skin.

So busy until i forgot to put my masks and now i even include them in my mobile calendar to remind myself at 10pm everyday to put on face mask. Yes , i am that “disciplined” about daily skincare routine.

Here are some masks i have been using for almost a year now. I like them alot and i use different masks for different days. Because sometimes my skin feels dry or dull. So i have both brightening and hyrdrating masks.

I bought them from Korea. Each cost KRW1000 – KRW 1500. which is bout SGD 1.50- SGD 2 per piece. You can buy those in this blog post from Olive Young.

I like this Hydrapeel mask from Mediheal. Really hydrating and can see the skin “pumps” up with moisture and also helps to brighten the skin alittle bit but not so much.

CNY Propolis Mask.

I like this too ! Comes with the ampoule and also the sheet mask soaked in propolis goodness.

My MIL ordered it online through TV home shopping so im not sure how much was it. But of cos cheaper to buy in Korea than in SG. It doesn’t really brightens up my skin but it does hydrates. So it is kind of like a skin “supplement” so you cannot really see an immediate effect on your skin like other masks do.

This is also one of my favourite from MedihealThe I.P.I Lightmax Mask.

To be honest , it does not whiten my skin but it does brightens up my complexion. So sometimes i will use this mask in the day before i head out. It makes putting make up so much easier cos the skin looks more radiant and brighter.

I always go for this among my stacks of hydrogel masks. Super love and i like it alot.

Must buy !

Here are some of the brands i buy for sheet or gel masks : Leaders , CNP , Mediheal , AHC , Celderma and SNP masks. Whether it is gel or those paper sheet masks doesn’t matter to me as long as they are effective !

I am not going to Korea this CNY because im going to meet my MIL and bro-in-law in Taiwan instead ! We are going on a family trip ! Hehe..so i ordered some stuff to send over to our place in Busan and my BIL will bring to Taiwan for me. My MIL helped me ordered the Doctor Cos Snow White Water Mask through Lotte Home Shopping. I downloaded the app so sometimes i can watch LIVE home shopping advertisement videos on the app. My housemate is a Korean girl and she recommended this to me and let me try it for a day. I instantly fell for it ! I ordered the special promo set (5 tubs of Doctor Cos Snow White Water Glow Mask + 5 tubes of whitening cream or cleanser which i cannot recall cos it was a month ago). I am going to give some bottles to my female clients and keep about 2 bottles each for myself ). I realized some of my female clients are into Korean skincare too and we are able to share and exchange beauty tips!

I saw some random shops selling this in SG but i don’t dare to buy because i am scared it is counterfeit product. Moreover, those shops sell until so expensive ! $45 for this bottle ?? It is only 1/3 of the price in Korea. There are shops selling fake Nature Republic aloe vera gels too ! Better to buy the real one than risk having outbreaks or allergic reactions.

Sigh , i realized i am becoming more auntie but my hubby consoled me and said i am not auntie but i am a good wife. Everyday after work , i will check the laundry basket to see if it is full and do the laundry. And if it rains in the middle of the night , i will bring in the laundry. I like to keep my toilet and kitchen clean so i will arrange the things properly and wipe the tables dry. The living room too … after watching TV , i will put the cushions in place and fold my fleece blanket and place it nicely on the sofa. I like clean toilet so i wash my toilet every Sunday. Our place is pretty small so there are alot of boxes of stuffs and luggages but i keep them in place neatly. I have been doing my own housework and cleaning my own room since young. My mum already “trained” me since my teens.

I have very dry hands because i clean my room and handwashed my clothes often before moving in with my hubby. But now im living on my own with my hubby , i have to do all the housework. So my hands become more dry. 1 tube of hand cream lasted me a month!

My friends , my colleagues , my family members and even my female clients complimented that i have good skin and im blessed with good skin. But i don’t have a pair of smooth hands. I have a pair of dry hands. Sometimes it felt so dry and so tight. And i stopped doing manicure already. Firstly , i can save $$ on manicure and secondly , there is no point doing manicure …even gel manicure because the gel nail polish will come off after a couple of days. All the housework and dishwashing makes it come off easily. Really waste my money to go for manicure. Pedicure is still ok and the gel polish will stay intact for at least 1.5-2months if i take care properly.

The hubby has been very understanding these days. Whenever i have appointments till late night , he will help out with the housework so i can come home to have a good rest.

Enough of the nagging, going to bed and need a good sleep. A long day of appointments tomorrow !
JIAYOU !

Happy Birthday Robert Oppa ~ ^^

Saturday night BBQ with the Korea Tigers baseball team to celebrate Robert Oppa’s birthday.

I was very touched by his support and he is more like a fatherly figure to me.

Every BBQ comes with yummylicious Pork Belly , beef and seafood ( alaskan king crab , lobsters and more ).

The star of the day was drenched with ice cold barrel of water. It was a “BEER ONLY” party and i couldnt find any water or soft drinks. Hundreds of cans of beer and sojus.

DSC01897

After the BBQ , we went up to his house for 2nd round of more beer and sojus. Of cos , i can’t drink at all so i was glad that i can finally drink water.

Had great catch up on Saturday with 2 of my SRJC friends Lihua and Candice for lunch at Jpot and then dinner with the Korea Tigers.
I realized that alot of my close friends are teachers and it is good to learn some parenting and teaching tips from them. It was a good catch up talking about the times we spent in school and all the naughty bits.

Talking about school days , i want to talk about this speech by Jack Ma ( Founder of Alibaba ) . It is a good video and i hope that this video inspires you if you are facing any problems in work , relationships or anything now.

  1. Before 20 years old , be a good student….way to entrepreneur to learn some experience.
  2. Before 30 years old , follow somebody , go to a small company….It is not which company you go , it is which boss you follow.
  3. From 30-40 years old , you have to think very clearly…
  4. When you are 40-50 years old ,you have to do all the things you are good at…
  5. When you are 50-60 years old , work for the young people..because young people can do better than you
  6. When you are over 60 years old , spend time for yourself.

When you are 25 years old , make enough mistakes . Don’t worry , you fall and you stand up. Just enjoy the show.

I have to say that i can truly relate to this speech because i have gone through 1) and now i am in 2) . I had made mistakes in judgement of people , relationships and things when i was 25 and young. It is probably a blessing in disguise. Because through these mistakes , i managed to improve myself and learn to be smart when it comes to dealing with people or relationships. Also , i learnt to cherish the people around me. The people whom i know are true friends.

On a side note , i’ve been sleeping really late these days to read up on articles and my eye bag was quite bad.
And i have been putting on the Mediheal eye patch which i bought from Korea in the morning before i put on my make up . It sure does help !
At night , i will put eye serum or light cream.

Here is the eye serum which im using from Aeon Medical and Aesthetics clinic. If you want sunblocks , you can try the sunblock from Aeon medical and aesthetics centre which is SPF90. Oppa is currently using it too because he stays under the sun for 4 hours every sunday during baseball practice. It helps to prevent sun burnt and protects the skin. Im also using Hera collagen eye up cream and Sulwhasoo firming eye cream. I was given alot of the sample sachets lol..it’s been almost a year and i still haven’t finish my sample sachets. LOL. I use the serums in the day and creams at night. I also use eye patch before i go out or put make up. The eye area looks more firmed up and easier to put on make up . But of cos , the best remedy is to drink more water and have ample sleep !

This eye patch is something you may want to get if you are traveling to Korea. You can find it at Olive and Young stores.  They have a huge range of Mediheal’s masks at Olive and Young.
