Here’s what i was busy with for the past 1 month.
Our ROM in SG.
11 Sep 2016.
We are now husband and wife.
In October , we will be registering our marriage in Busan, South Korea and hold our wedding there.
08 Oct 2016 is the day in Korea.
Haha we have 2 wedding dates so we are using the SG date for our anniversary date. Easier to remember also..911.
The ROM in SG is a cozy and small 80 pax ceremony where we only invite our families and closest friends. The buffet banquet will be in Korea instead.
Pardon for the lack of blog updates. Actually i have written a blog post on #Smartlady and #Kbeauty but the blur me saved it as “private” instead of “public”. So this blog post gonna be a loonnng one !
So my bro-in-law came to SG last week. I think he is quite a popular guy haha cos he is very gentle giant , knows how to cook and is capable eligible bachelor..such that my relatives and friends want to match make him. He is still SINGLE.
His arrival also means my #Kbeauty arrival which i ordered online and sent it to our place in Busan.
Here are some new #Kbeauty i bought and i really like them. There are a few more but won’t be reviewing it now because i have not used them yet or not long enough yet.
Atopalm Real Barrier Intense Moisture Cream.
Price KRW 25,600
It is a moisturiser cream and not very “scenty” like other perfumed moisturiser.
My skin feels dry lately because of late nights and also the air con in office is sooo cold and dry that makes my skin feels so dry and tight. So i opted for something more rich. I really like it because is moisturising and compliments with my base make up. My BB cushion sets very well on it. You know , some creams are too rich and the texture is so thick that when you apply your BB cushion , it sort of mixed in and makes the whole look and feel very gluey and gross.
Is it worth buying ? Yes i think it is . It works on my skin type and i hardly experience dry skin these days. It is not very oily also. It is quite a popular brand among the ladies there and my housemate is using this too ! It is in my stock up list !
If you have oily skin and wants to try this brand , you can try the gel version.
COC Brush Set
I was tempted by the pink colour so i carted out. Also i need brushes. My 3CE brushes already so cui. Used them for 4 years already so it is time to change. This set of brushes are very soft and nice. The powder and make up glides on easily during application.
Also , the packaging is compact and travel friendly. Easy to keep in your handbag or luggage. So compact that i can bring the entire set out.
When you open the casing , the whole case fans out like that with the brushes in their place. So all are neat and tidy. You do not need to dig out from your pouches and arrange them one by one.
Comes with mirror that open up by itself also.
When you close it. Just slot the brushes back into their slots and close the casing..Tadahh.
This is a super good buy i tell you. There is a bigger version but i thought i don’t need soo many brushes. So i got this set instead. It was also featured in Korea beauty show – Get It Beauty.
Price KRW 19,800
Comes with 9 brushes – Blusher brush , foundation brush , 2x eye shadow brush , eyebrow brush , concealer brush , eye liner brush , eyelash comb brush, sponge tip.
This set is super worth it and the brush are so soft and compact to keep in the bag or travel.
CNP Laboratory Milk Toning Peel
My MIL bought me 3 sets of CNP Milk Toning Peel. Yes..im a fan of aesthetic brand CNP now. They also have aesthetic clinics in Korea. Cheaper to have aesthetics done in KR.
This peel is SUPER GOOD ! If there are more than 5 stars , i will rate it more than 5.
As you can see, there is one “lobang” already. because i already used it once.
1 set comes with 4 toning peel and 4 toning masks. My mil bought for me 3 sets and it came with a brush.
You are supposed to use it once a week. So , 1 set = 1 month.
I was told that it is better to use it for 12 weeks ( which is 3 months ) so she got for me 3 sets.
This is the brush you use to apply the toning peel and its texture is similar to that of a serum.
It looks complicated with so many things but actually the whole process took 16 minutes in total only.
Open the Milk Toning Peel and use the brush to apply the “serum” onto your entire face ( avoiding eyes area ). You will feel abit of tingling sensation. I felt it and it felt like someone using a small needle to poke my skin. I felt it on my cheeks and forehead only. Guess that’s where most of my dead skins are ..maybe ? It is not painful but just felt some tingling sensation on some parts of the face. Leave it on for 1min or 1.5 minutes before you wash it off with warm water.
After which , pat dry your face with towel and put on the toning mask for 15 minutes. The mask actually helps to soothe the skin after the peel. The effect is really THUMBS UP ! Cannot praise it even more. My skin felt so soft and radiant. I didn’t even wear make up the next day after i used it the night before. Told my colleague that i didn’t put any make up to work today and they were surprised. Because my skin looks radiant and dewy.
I just used it on my husband (Gosh..not used to call him hubby or Yeobo (Korean version) ). He is very tanned because he plays baseball every week ( 2 times a week ) and have uneven skin tone. This peel evens out his skin tone and his skin suddenly looks so clean. This is my favourite skin peel so far and i really like it. Will definitely stock up more.
Price KRW 28,500 per set ( 4 times for a month use ).
Skin Factory Lip Tattoo
Also i finally tried the lip tattoo. Very easy steps.
Just apply on dry lips , wait for it to dry and peel off.
To be honest , it doesn’t really work well on me. The colour isn’t that obvious. And if you really want to buy and try , buy the one that is bright red in colour. I got 2 colours ( Coral and Red ). The coral one is totally waste of $$ because it doesn’t have any effect. The red one is still ok. Can see that my lips at least have “some colour”.
It is definitely not like what was shown in the picture below. My friend tried it and it doesn’t work on her as well.
I don’t think this is good nor does it worth the $ . It doesn’t work.
Same goes to the brow tattoo. Very messy.
Got some more #Kbeauty products but i have yet to open and use them yet. LOL. Will review more i used them.
Just got 2 BBIA cream eye shadown pencils. Can’t wait to use them. Colours look so gorgeous !
#SGAHJUMMA time !
This week , im going to share recipe to cook Korean Soya Sauce Fried Chicken.
Korean Fried Chicken + Beer = Chi-Mac !
Yes , you do not need to queue and spend $$ at Korean Fried Chicken joints. You can do it at home and it is healthier. Good for parties and for kids too because it is not spicy.
My hubby loves it and always ask for more. I cooked it 2 weeks ago. He loves it so much and i have cooked like 3 times since ? lol
Chicken wings and drumlets.
1 bowl of corn flour.
5 table spoons of Korean Soya Sauce
1 table spoon of brown sugar
3 table spoon of white sugar
1 table spoon of sesame oil
1 tea spoon of black pepper
3 table spoons of honey
1 table spoon of Korean Chilli Powder
4 Table spoons of chopped spring onion
1 Table spoon of minced garlic
How to cook ?
Wash and dry the chicken parts. I use fresh chicken instead of frozen ones. It will taste better because you need to fry it twice.
After drying the chicken , coat them with corn flour.
I used air fryer to air fry the corn flour coated chicken parts. You can use a wok of oil to fry if you don’t have an air fryer.
Air fry for about 25 minutes until it is crispy brown.
After air frying all the chicken, leave them aside on a plate.
Mix all the sauce ingredients in a bowl and leave it aside.
Heat up a pan/wok with few spoons of olive oil. Once the pan is heated up , pour the bowl of sauce into the frying pan until it sizzles. Switch from medium to low heat.
Throw in the fried chicken in mix it with the sauce.
Switch off the heat and serve ! Sprinkle some spring onions and sesame seeds to garnish.
Now, here’s your home cooked Korean Soya Sauce Fried Chicken.
Super yummy ! Oppa ate all 22 pieces lol. I only had 4 ????
Also, i just made some Ban Chan ( Korean side dishes ). Will share recipe soon !
