Ok , im back to blogging !

I came back from Taiwan last friday and now im down with sore throat and a cold.

I realized i haven’t been active on my blog since November which was after my Korea trip because i was abit busy with wedding planning and also i fell sick once a month so i need more rest. I haven even watch Running Man and Superman Returns since December !!!! AHHHH !

Hehe..so im now back to regular blogging …because i just got a couple of new make up products from Korea and Taiwan and the wed planning are  I am still in the midst of replying all my emails at peonykissblog@gmail.com . Quite a number were asking about the online shop which i got the jackets from. I received several requests to blog often esp on beauty reviews. So yup ! You can look for more of such posts !

So i went on a 6D 5N trip with my colleagues and my first time to Taiwan.

Ready for lotsa photos here ! The page took so loong to load.

Taiwanese really look good. Every street and every corner , you will see good looking girls or guys.

Food was good and alot of shopping to do.

So when we arrived at Taoyuan Airport , our driver drove us to our farm stay. We stayed 2 nights at Cingjing which is near the southern side of Taiwan. It was snowing and we are so lucky to catch the first snow. We read on the news that it hasn’t snowed like that for decades. So we are so lucky !

On our way to Cingjing , we stopped by 2 rest stations for food and toilet break. One thing we must do when we arrive in Taiwan is to eat the street food. DAMN NICE AND CHEAP.

I had milk tea and cripsy chickens everyday when i was in Taipei. I am still craving for them even though im back in SG now.

After our first rest station and toilet break , our driver drove us to this restaurant near our farm stay. It has a spectacular view of the mountains. So nice and the food was soo good. Plus the weather was very cold so we all felt shiok having hot soups.

DSC02711 DSC02713

Here’s the view from our seat at the restaurant. Because it is open air , so it is VERY cold.

DSC02709 DSC02708 DSC02707 DSC02704

Only 6pm and sun sets.

DSC02720 DSC02722

Popby the nearest 7-11 to grab some drinks and snacks before we check into our farmstay.

Our farm stay.

We had a good night sleep. The weather was so cold and showering is such a torture lol. It was sub-zero degrees at night.

Guess what , we were woken up by some sounds and when we looked out the window , it was snowing !

Our hands were freezing ~~~

Coat , beanie , scarf , knit top , leggings etc were all from Korea. Bought them online lol. Entire set cost me less than $100. I love my jacket. It has a layer of furry stuff that keeps me warm in this sub-zero temperature.

We were near the top of the mountain so it was really cold and windy. I couldn’t feel my hands and i have to keep them warm in my pockets.

It was snowing very heavily and  the road up to the top of the mountain was blocked by traffic police so we couldn’t go up to see sunrise. So we went to the night market for lunch and took a boat ride to island hop and had the famous Ah Po Cha Ye Dan ( Ah Ma Tea Leaves Egg ). Heard that she sold 25,000 eggs per day and now own 6 Ferraris. GASP!

So this is the Ah Ma Tea Leaves Egg which is earning big bucks. To be honest , i don’t think there is any thing special about that egg nor does it taste extremely good. I think the ones sold at our Pasar Malam is better. But don’t know why she can sell 25,000 eggs per day and ended up soooo rich to own 5 Ferraris and big houses.

So cold and we decided to go for spring bath at night. Feel so shiok because the water was sooo hot and warm.

After the spring bath we went back to our farm stay, we had some drinks and games before packing and sleeping . Because we were leaving for Taipei on Monday ! Ahhh just one week ago , i was at Taipei’s Wufen-pu and Raohe night marketing eating and shopping to my heart content !

DSC02838

Woke up in the morning to sight of beautiful white snow again ! And this time , we checked out and ready to go to Taipei !

Looks like in Switzerland right ?

Ha…im gonna just load up to here and continue tomorrow. Im going to sleep soon and at the rate that the photos are loading , i think it will take another 2 hours ! So many photos take in the grassland at Cingjing , shopping and food in Taipei , Korean / Japanese / Taiwanese make up buys and reviews  and the new treatment i just did at Aeon Aesthetics and Medical Centre which leaves my skin soooooo smooth. I can’t even feel any bumps or pores on my nose now ! There is the latest treatment and it really leaves my skin very smooth. I like it ! Alot of beauty and make up reviews. I just started using anti-aging products !

shall go to sleep while the photos are still loading ..Good night !

To be continued….

One of the reason why i MIA-ed for 2 weeks.

I was down with a really bad eye infection.

Pus was oozing out from my eyes and it somehow dried up and “encrusted” around my eyes. I thought i was tearing because of the inner lid infection but i was shock that i was unable to open my eyes and totally disgusted by this sight when i looked into the mirror. This picture already not bad liao. It was worst. So for a couple of days , my eyes was totally shut. I thought i was going blind okay !

1453277914560

Got a cheap cheap specs to wear and cover the swollen eyes. This was a few days after taking antibiotics.

B1453277944613

Took 10 days to heal completely before i was down with a bad cold again. And if you are wondering who is handling Agneselle now ? Well , i have people taking care and running it for me now. You can enjoy 20% off NEW ARRIVALS now ! (enter code CNY20 to enjoy 20% off NEW ARRIVALS and SALE50 to enjoy 50% off SALE) . New items just added under SALES page few days ago too !

Body immune system was kinda low for 2 weeks.  I just want a healthy 2016 !

I just saw alot of emails in peonykissblog@gmail.com inbox and i will reply them before end of the week. Saw alot of queries on the jackets i bought and also places to go in Korea. I will answer them properly so it may take a while to reply.

The wedding day is kinda fixed on 8th October in Busan. 08.10.16.

So this coming spring , im going there for my wedding shoot and make my hanbok. I am also arranging for my brother to take his wedding pictures there. Im now becoming a Korea photoshoot wedding planner soon lol. Planning and arranging for photoshoots and proposals for alot of my friends or family member now. It is cheaper than going through bridal studios in SG. You save at least 50% lol but firstly you need to know the language and it is easier to communicate this way. Studios that target foreigners only tend to be a little more expensive. It is better if you have a local to arrange for you instead.

We were thinking of hanbok wedding dress which is more unique. East west fushion with embroidery details. Shall go see see look look this coming trip.

My new family in Korea. Jinjae oppa printed the pictures and put it at home.

My fiance , his brother and his mother.

I have more good news and K-beauty to share next post !

CNY is coming and i had my new hair colour done with Joanne. She is really attentive and attend to me from the start till the end even washing my hair. I wanted something abit reddish + violet + dark brown that doesn’t fade to orangey or yellowish tone due to the nature of my work ( i have to look presentable ) . Also something a little bit violet. So she mixed these 2 colours for me and i really love it !!! All my colleagues and friends said the colour is very nice and even asked what colour is it.  The salon is located at Chevron house so it is convenient for those who work at Raffles place. And also if you have any company events or important client meetings you can find her to set your hair. She starts early morning because some bankers find her to wash , below and set their hair before work ( really salute to them..can wake up so early to have their done ). You can contact Joanne at 9839 1084 and mention my name to enjoy discounts.

Actually i bought quite abit of winter/spring coats , knits and beanies from the korean site for my taiwan trip. Im going to Cingjing and didn’t expect it to be -3 degrees celsius. Luckily , i bought fleece and fur lined leggings. Why i like to buy from Korean site is because 1) Affordable 2) Keep my warm 3) Light weight 4) Chic designs that never run out of style. The trick to buying from Korean site is never look at how good is it on the model. What looks good on model doesn’t mean it will look good on you. Their models look like dolls ( whether is it natural or plastic surgery i dont know ). Same goes to online shopping in SG. Usually i will take hours to shop because i really think and imagine how it will look like on me and how can i pair it with what i have.I also buy neutral or pastel colours because it is easier to match.

Remember the Espoir primer i blogged about 2 months ago ? I really love it. Very moisturizing and good for my Taiwan trip because it is winter there now. If you are looking for a primer that moisturizes your skin and gives you that glow , this is the right one ! I prefer this to the Hera one because this one contains essences and more moisturizing for me .

Before i end this post , i wanna talk about animal cruelty and abuse.

It is very saddening to know how some people can be SO EVIL HEARTED !

https://www.facebook.com/Hopedogrescuesg/posts/1205772872784217

I hope karma get to this person who did this horrible and inhumane thing to this dog.

Who can be so evil to trick it to the forest area and tie it to the tree. The dog was fighting for its life by barking and whining to get help and attention. I emailed to enquire on how can i chip in to its medical fees and before i could even contribute , the dog has passed away.

I really don’t understand how can someone be so evil to do that to the dog. May this little baby rest in peace.

Really angry to read this.

If the person who did that is reading this post..KARMA will come to you !

Because someone was commenting that there is no “Christmas” atmosphere in SG (because he was used to snowy white Christmas) , so i decided to prepare some steamboat , invited his friends and also decorated the house with some ornaments i bought from daison. Lol..but it felt like CNY to me because one of the mama store in the neighbourhood was already playing CNY songs and i was having steamboat at home lol.

Bought moscato , beer and cutesy kitchen wares from Daiso because we only have 2 sets at home.

 Whether is it Korean bbq or steamboat..i need to have at least 6 packs of Enoki mushrooms and 2 packets of crabsticks.

DSC02610A DSC02608A

I made my own chicken stock with corn.

Bought the steamboat pot and induction cooker at the last minute from Giant for  $40..hehe cos they were having discount and i can use it for Army stews, any other stews or Ddokbokki ( with ra-myeon ) soon ! Maybe cooking army stew this coming week. Let’s see.

DSC02605A

The table was “separated into 2 sides” – 1 side are all the meats ( Korean style ) and the other side are all the yong tau foo ( Chinese style ) which is for me and oppa’s baseball teammate’s gf who is a Malaysian.

DSC02604A

That was how we spent our Christmas at home . After that , we had drinks at the balcony which had a beautiful sea view and keppel port view.

Whereas for NYE , we had a quite and quality time at home. Because it was our 2nd anniversary ( the day we met ). We watched fireworks from our balcony.

DSC02666A

After which on 02 Jan , Vivi and I brought the oppas to East Coast for their first prawning and BBQ. Can’t compare our prawning to the prawning in Korea which is more natural. But at least we were having fun and yummy prawns because we caught many. We even bought pork belly , beef , Kimchi, Korean seaweeds and hehe of cos Enoki mushrooms to bbq. Paired with my sambal belachan which all of them were addicted to.

DSC02683 DSC02682 DSC02681 DSC02680

I really had a good rest for the past 2 long weekends and did alot of cooking too. When i had appointments , i will cook and prepare Korean “bento” which is known as Do-Si-Rak for Oppa and he just heat up during meal time. It includes rice / porridge garnished with seaweed shreds , 1 meat / korean style omelette , 2 side dishes ( ban-chan ). Very easy , just need 30 minutes to prepare.

I had a good time and yummy Korean food with my gf at Tanjong Pagar – Tomdamgol. I am getting the ban-chan (side dishes) recipe from his mother and hopefully i can start making them as soon as i get all the ingredients i need. Not easy to find certain ingredients and sauces.

Ramyeon + Ddokbokki

O-muk Tang

(usually known as O-deng but hmmm oppa is quite particular..i can’t use jap names for Korean dishes. O-deng is actually japanese. In Korean , it is known as O-muk which means fish cake). Busan is well known for its fish cakes , so if you are going to Busan , this is something you must try. You can find alot of such street stalls in Nampo-dong selling them at $1 per stick ( KRW 1000 ).

CNY is coming and it was year end which is the only time i shop because it is SALES everywhere for past season designs and at the same time you can see new 2016 designs.

After which i will go on a hiatus on shopping till November again lol.

Korean websites are having sales too. Christmas and Lunar New Year sales so it is a good time to shop for coats which i will need since i will be traveling to Korea twice a year now and maybe 3 times after the wedding lol.

One shop i will go to without fail everytime i go to Korea is the MLB shop. They sell alot of cool baseball caps and jackets.

Whenever i watch Korean variety shows , i will look out for the caps the hosts and guests are wearing. Especially for Running man and Infinity Challenge because the hosts are always in new and latest designs. Not only their caps but i do look out for their shoes and jackets. Because the ones they wear are always soooo nice. Quite lucky i managed to get the one G-dragon was seen wearing when i went to Korea in Oct. Alot of people wanted me to sell to them and some even offered a higher price (all because G-dragon was seen wearing same design during a performance ).

Screen Shot 2016-01-03 at 11.33.06 PM

I don’t have a black cap. So i decided to get this one. I had this in White with silver Sox logo and Navy with white NY logo. So this is my first LA black one with gold outlined logo. MLB is having discount. So haha i just have to get it.

Usually i wear caps when im out or when im wearing simple spag tops with denim shorts. It adds abit of chic-ness to the entire outfit. And also on days when im lazy to put on any make up , i will just wear a cap.

Screen Shot 2016-01-03 at 11.34.37 PM

I was thinking to get the leather one or not but my head quiet small so snapbacks may not really suit me.

Screen Shot 2016-01-03 at 11.32.37 PM Screen Shot 2016-01-03 at 11.34.49 PM

This looks like the one from Chrome hearts. If only they have it in camouflage prints instead of black. It will be nice too.

Screen Shot 2016-01-03 at 11.38.30 PM

CNY is coming and do look out for AE’s CNY collection coming this weekend !

Here’s a sneak peek of an upcoming lace dress. Look out for discounts too !

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.

5e7b955bbc1fa80632333a10898d0d6f

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.

 Screen Shot 2015-12-27 at 10.18.42 PM

And this padding coat. Looks damn cute right with the white furry hood.

Screen Shot 2015-12-27 at 10.20.05 PM Screen Shot 2015-12-27 at 10.20.18 PM

And i got this too in PINK !

I wouldn’t get the coats if they weren’t on SALE. Now everything is on SALE and this furry knit top is only KRW 23,000 ~

Screen Shot 2015-12-27 at 11.02.19 PM

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.

DSC02568A

Dr Kim will mark on the areas before we start.

DSC02586A

The machine used camera to track and for optimal accuracy.

DSC02590A

DSC02591A

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

DSC02596A

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 !

I just went to have my eyelash extensions done. Quite a number of people asked how i go about removing my eye make up and yet taking good care of the lash extensions ? Removing make up when you have lash extensions can be quite challenging but i managed to find a quick and cheap way.

I bought this Etude House eye make up pencil remover. It doesn”t really remove make up totally but kind of helps to remove make up smudges. But i used it to remove my eye make up (1st step) before i use oil-to-foam cleanser (2nd step) to remove the remaining. This pencil helps to “dissolve” your eyemake up thus making it easier for your 2nd step make up remover to remove it totally. In this way , there is no need to soak your q-tip cotton buds into make up remover solutions and slowly trying to “rub” it off.

My method works pretty find for me and it also helps to “dissolve” waterproof make up and making eye make up remover easier. It is not expensive and about 7,800 KRW at Etude house. Im not sure if the stores in Singapore are selling it or not but you should give it a try.

This month is a busy but fulfilling month for me. Down with food poisoning last 1 week and i couldnt eat or sleep well.

Next few months going to be bit busy and i can’t wait for the Xmas holidays because i can finally sit down and do a proper research for our wedding plans which will happen next year Sept / Oct in Busan. And im already looking for coats for next year. This year, i didn’t bring thick enough and ended up having food poisoning and a bad cold. Feeling damn paiseh..because first time meeting his mum but i ended up in hospital and she has to take care of me.

Anyways , should i go for a hanbok wedding dress or a traditional hanbok ?
I prefer it to be pastel colour though. Hehe.

Saw a couple of coats for spring on a korean site and tempted to get them though. They are having Xmas SALES ! Thinking should i ship them to SG or to our place in Busan.

The cutting is so nice. Only KRW 40,000. I bought coats from this shop previously and they keep me so warm during late winter and spring. Very light weight too.

Screen Shot 2015-12-18 at 10.44.57 AM

Like this purple colour. Quite unique and since im always in black. It should brighten my outfit. Also i like furry coats. Very nice and soft to touch !

Screen Shot 2015-12-18 at 10.50.19 AM

 If only SG has 4 seasons. I love dressing up during spring/autumn where the weather is not too cold and not too hot. Just nice for my lace boots , coats and stockings etc.

I haven’t been getting in touch with the latest Korean dramas or variety shows due to work for the past 1 month. But im still having my weekly Korean classes and surprisingly my Korean speaking improves quite alot and i am able to have fluent conversations with his mother on the phone and even understanding abit of the Busan dialect.

Im hooked to the Reply drama series.

I have watched Reply 1994 , Repy 1997 and now Korea is airing the Reply 1988. I started watching the first drama series in 2013.

Damn funny and interesting drama. You can hear many forms of Korean dialects – Standard Seoul Dialect , Busan Dialect , Jeolla-d- Dialect, Chungcheong-do Dialect or Gangwon-do Dialect. Also , you can get to learn alot about traditional Korean cultures. It helps me to understand the era that oppa’s mother and him grew up. You will also get to learn their family house rules / habits , manners etc. I also learnt my Busan dialect from these 3 series. Though i can understand , i can’t really speak the dialect.

If you have watched the Taiwanese drama Our Times , it is something similar but this is drama form.

Reply 1997 featured Eunji from Apink and some other rapper idols.

Very hilarious drama. Even more hilarious if you understand Korean or even the dialects.

 header-reply-series

This time Reply 1988 featured Hyeri from Girls Day. The actor on the left very shuai hor ?

casting-news-reply-1988

reply-1988

Go watch Reply 1988 and the other series also. You will get hooked. If you have a Korean bf/gf/spouse , watch it with them. It will be good for bonding and also to learn more about his culture , family habits etc.

I think i had too much Korean bbq or the pork was not well cooked. I was down with food poisoning for a few days and the feeling was really terrible.

Last week , we went to Robert Oppa’s house for Korean bbq.

Went with SY oppa and RJ oppa to K&J Butchery at Bukit Timah to buy pork belly and pork collar.

This butchery carries alot of Korean food , meats , sauces , sojus etc. A typical Korean mart for you to buy Korean ingredients for cooking. The vegs and all are also from Korea.

Yup yup, you can find Peach soju here !

It is Christmas soon. And lately i have been working outside at starbucks sipping my cup of $4.60 Earl Grey tea with some new found friends using the app Lunch Kaki.

Here’s a picture taken while having coffee with my lunch kaki.

20151202_124338

Lunch Kaki was an app started by a dear friend of mine. He quit his job as a stock broker to start out a networking app on his own. Alot of hardwork and planning were put into this app and though in just less than 1 year , the app has alot of users and i see more new people joining this app. Even my Korean teacher also joined this app. As a humble man , he will meet his users to ask for feedbacks to improve the app. This app helps to improve my social circle and i met people from all walks of life. For people like me who moved around , having meals alone can be quite sian at times. Lol i will always joke with my lunch kaki that i need someone to look after my belongings while i go get my food which is the reason why i used. Haha just joking lah. Need to break the ice what if not the meal will be very quiet and awkward.

My lunch kakis and i had meals ,talked about what we do , our trades and for some we eventually became friends and met often for meals. Recently, i met with someone who worked in the petrochemical industry and he taught me alot about dealing with people and differentiating personalities. Not only did i met someone and made a friend but we learnt from each other.

You can read more about the app HERE.

Support local app , join Lunch kaki and make a new friend !

** Psst..i just had new eyelash extensions done and also a tummy fat “destroying” session at Aeon Aesthetics and Medical Center. Sounds scary but actually it is not. Blogging soon tomorrow on these 2 !!

I guess i haven’t blog for quite a while and the last check was 2 weeks ago . And hmm i forgot my wordpress password ??

And i just managed to check my blog’s email and saw that i have some incoming emails from readers.

Lately , i have a couple of friends who are travelling to Korea for holiday and they asked me where to make specs and contact lenses. Because the shops there are known for the fast delivery and you can collect your specs ( frame + lens ) within 30 minutes. I don’t know how they do it but maybe they have stock up of lenses in different degrees. Even for contact lenses too which is immediate.

Oppa always have his specs and contact lenses done at Davich. He has been buying here for many years since his schooling days.  Bought his specs (frame + lens ) and contact lenses and get them immediately. No waiting.

20150921_212954A 20150921_212957A

Lots of color and cosmetic lenses too. About KRW 10,000 per pair which is about SGD $11.

I had Korean bbq 3 times in a week last week. Feeling really guilty and sinful. Better drink more liang teh if not very heaty.

Had a great day spending time with his seniors and their families. Their kids are soooo cute esp Bong Bong Ee ( the baby below and Bong Bong Ee is his nickname ). Sooo cute when he place both his hands on his belly , did a little cute squat , bow and said “Annyeonghasaeyo” when he greeted me.

Feeling really fat these days because i have been eating alot of good food lately when i meet the oppas. Korean BBQ , shabu shabu , chicken and home cooked Korean food. Oh i cooked Sogolgi Jeongol ( Beef soup stew ) last week and i will share the recipe later.

And i heard that Aeon Aesthetics and Medical Centre has expanded their space ! Korean body contouring services are now available at the clinic. Saw the newly renovated clinic and i will share more pictures of it soon !

AEON is glad to be the first and only clinic currently to carry and do treatments with the third, latest and improved version of Ultrashape in Singapore.

I did Venus Legacy tummy toning and firming which is a painless process. It feels like having a “stomach facial” actually.

Changed to a comfortable wear in the new space that looks like a spa. Spacious room with a bed in the middle.

Angela , the aesthetician applied a layer of cool gel on my tummy area which i want to tone. I hardly exercise these days ( or should i say MONTHS ? ). And i like to wear tight dresses so i need to tone my tummy. My weight also fluctuates these days. Sometimes i weight 52kg and sometimes im 54kg. I got a shock when i stood onto the weighing skill. Because i was only 45-46kg before i met Oppa so you can imagine how much weight i gained 😦 And the all go to the hips , tummy and bum area.

Room was spacious so that the aesthetician has space to move around and also i feel very relax because of the space and luxurious decor and bed. You can also have your facial and body contouring done together in this room. The aesthetician adjust the temperature of the machine to achieve optimal results.

The whole process took only 30 minutes and during the process , Angela will check to ask if i feel any discomfort. But it was so comfortable that i feel asleep. After which , she will use a hot towel to clean the excess gel and i get to change back to my own clothes and have my cup of hot Korean tea.

Aeon is having Christmas Surprise Promo and you can enjoy these services at a Promo rate. T&Cs apply.

The tummy toning and firming i did is Venus Legacy. You can call 6733 2002 to enquire and do drop by to take a look at their newly expanded space.

Wahh alot of students and we felt old there..i was joking to Oppa saying that why is this ahjussi (oppa) doing here lol..

It was an experience because it was my first time to an invited Fan meet. Being able to come up so close with the kpop stars whom i always see online only. Bora from Sistar is my favourite and she is soo pretty !

We get to see Sistar and Monsta X performing their top hits , Hi 5 sessions and phototaking as well.

I don’t know about Monsta X until few months ago when i chanced upon their MV on youtube. They are quite shuai actually when we met face to face during the Hi 5 and phototaking sessions. Haha Oppa was jokingly saying that im already a Noona..no hope already hahaha. I realized Korean guys are quite big build and tall. If you ask who are my favorites ? It will be Bora from Sistar and Shownu from Monsta X. Both are good at rapping and i find guys who rap quite have “seh” one leh

If you don’t know who is Monsta X yet , you can see some of their videos below. They are from the same company as Sistar.

Thank you Koryo Mart for the tickets.

If you were wondering what is Koryo mart , it used to be known as Lotte Mart but they changed the name and now known as Koryo Mart. If you are a Korean food fan and frequent Tanjong pagar , you will see a Korean supermarket. Yup , that is the one. They have several outlets in SG where you can buy Korean snacks , ramen , sauces and more. All imported from Korea. I have been to other Korean marts in town which though was named Korean mart but alot of stuff are from China and can buy from NTUC. Can’t even buy decent Korean dumplings at those marts because they sell chinese mantous and wantons..hmmmm…

I shop at Lotte /Koryo Mart for my Korean sauces and ingredients which i used to cook Korean food at home. All the chilli paste , soya bean paste , vinegar, sesame oil and soya sauce etc. Even the BBQ pan which can filter oil. The standard sauces are chilli paste , soya bean paste , vinegar , sesame oil , soya sauce and chilli flakes. These are the basic sauces you need to have and with these , you can cook quite a number of dishes and stews already.

Going there to shop for more stuff soon !

You can check their Facebook page HERE for details. They just opened a new outlet at Marine Parade.

Long time no see and here’s a selfie taken when i had pedicure done.

Have a good week.

K-beauty !

Here’s something i got from Korea 2 months ago and i finally started using it after the Maxclinic one which i got in April finished up.

I used to remove make up with cleansing oil but i switched to Oil to Foam cleansing oil to remove my make up. This is used in the 2nd step after using the Biore cleansing water or Biore Jelly up remover to remove eye make up.

Cleansing = 3 steps for me and that includes thorough make up removals.

First step – Remove with cleansing water or make up remover

2nd step – Remove remaining make up with cleansing oil

3rd step – Foam cleansers.

I love how this cleansing oil turns to foam when you lather your face with water. I don’t like how oil cleansers are soooo hard to remove even with foam cleansers. Some cleansers are too mild and may take longer time or quite hard to remove the cleansing oil on the face. Or the cleansing oil is too oily and too strong for the cleansers.

So it is good to get oil to foam cleansers because they don’t leave that oily feeling and it removes your make up.

The Max Clinic one is good but not sold in SG. Blogged HERE before.

Because it turns to foam after you lather with water , it rinses off easily. YAY !

Im gonna stock on this ON: and Max Clinic ones on my next trip in March/April. I maybe going for a short 5 days in Jan to check on the wedd stuff. Got this at KRW 7,500 after 50% discount from OLIVE and YOUNG. Lucky enough to get this at 50% off because when i want to go back to buy another bottle to stock up , it was back to KRW 15,000 and so i didn’t buy.

Something you can buy and try as a 2nd step make up removal. Or if you are someone who puts on light make up , i think this one can remove your make up base well enough.

Im turning 30 soon and im slowly introducing anti-aging products to my skin. I have sooo many sample bottles of this AGE AWAY range from HERA that i think the samples alone can last me probably 6 months or more. Starting to feel old and can feel the skin is no longer like last time. A little bit different from 4 years ago because now i realized i need to maintain it quite abit more than before. I like this range alot. I haven’t gotten any breakouts yet (not pimple kind of breakouts but rashes). Because when a product is too strong or rough for my skin , rashes will start appearing and they are the abit painful and itchy kind. It will take 2 days for it to go away. But yay to this one.no side effects.

I think im like a K-travel guide. Friends often ask me where to go in Korea. Because they have been to Seoul soooo many times and they want to go elsewhere. They want to travel for 10 days.

Seoul , Jeju and Busan. These are the 3 popular places. To be honest , 3 days in Busan or 3 days in Jeju is not enough. If you have the time , 5 days will be great for you to comb the entire place and go to more places. Most people put a week in Seoul because there are more to see. Actually i find that Seoul is more for shopping. But if you want to have a rich experience of the culture , you can go to these places.

Gyeongju : 

It was once the capital of the ancient kingdom of Silla and you can see many ancient and traditional Korean houses and palaces. Awesome place to go in Spring and Autumn because the trees , leaves and flowers blended in so well with the architectures. 2 days 1 night here will do.

Jeonju : 

If you love bibimbap , Jeonju is the place you should try. Jeonju is famous for its bibimbap.

The Jeonju Bibimbap ! Jeonju is famous for its food. So remember to eat and eat and eat your way there.

It is about 5 hours bus ride from Seoul so it will take about 2 or 3 hours via KTX ?

Quite a small town so probably 1 day is enough. You should visit the Hanok Village. If im not wrong , you can book a Hanok stay there.

Tongyeong : 

Tongyeong is located at the southern peninsula of South Korea. If you are a fan of K-pop star Song Joong Ki and you watched the movie Innocent man , you will know this place because it was shot here at Tongyeong at this place called Dongpirang. You can find alot of paintings on the wall and the shooting locations. Famous food here is the Ggulbbang ( Honey Bread ). Very cheap. About KRW500 per piece. 1 full day here will do and you can move on to other or take a ferry to Jeju.

Naejangsan :

Good place to go in Autumn is the Naejangsan. it is located at outskirts of Jeonju. You can find temples and beautiful waterfalls here. Don’t wear like me when you go there. I can’t climb up the mountain because of my clothes so i was only at the base.  Just half a day here will do unless you want to do mountain hiking or trekking.

Jinhae :

1 day stay will do and you can move on to Busan from here.

Located an hour drive away from Busan. Famous place for its spring blossoms. Crowded with alot of locals during Spring.  Best place i have ever been to in Korea in Spring. Super nice and even the mountains have “speckles” of white cherry blossoms. So nice ! I want to go back here again next year in Spring ! Cherry blossoms everywhere. This is the best place in Korea for cherry blossoms.

Gangwon-do : 

Best place to go to during Winter because of its ski resots and the snow capped mountains. Damn cold. I have never been there but i want to !!! I was asking Oppa if i can have my honey moon here hahaha he wanted to faint already because i wanted my honeymoon in Jeju island and Gangwon-do !

GangwonDo

There are other places also like Daegu , Ulsan , Gwangju and more….i’ve been to Ulsan and 1 full day there will do 🙂 If you were to skip Seoul , Busan or Jeju because you have been there many times , you can go to at least 7 cities for a 10 days trip to Korea.
