Get Warm for Winter – Ministry of Retail

It's two day to Christmas, and here would be my virtual gift to you-
A post with massive photos specially prepared with efforts of editing & writing :p

As you know, i just came back from Korea a week back and it was freezing madly for me (i'm quite afraid of cold),
and the temperature there was about 0 to 5 Degrees, I'm pretty sure it is definitely below that now- about 0 to -10 Degrees Celsius.
With that in mind,  I bet you are actively looking for coats, in particularly pretty and stylish coats,
there you go, here's one fashion boutique - Ministry of Retail that has exactly what you are looking for. ;)

They are in fact a fashion boutique that brings to you quality apparels that are from Korea,
(I must say, Koreans have absolutely great fashion sense and almost everything that is made from Korea has at least a minimal good quality),
and all designs in Ministry of Retail are imported exclusively,

These apparels are following the fashion trends of Korea,
at the same time, Ministry of Retail will focus on picking out those nicest of the lot and definitely, ensuring quality from the picks as well.
I must say a great thank you to them – for letting me have a share of the fashion coats/clothing fix for my Korea trip or so,
and for being so efficient with their customer service (coats came right in time for my trip!).

Not just that, they do have a wide range of Korean fashion accessories,
apparels that are worn inside of our coats or for our normal local weather.
I was so carried away with looking for outer coats that it slipped off my mind that i would need inner wear as well,
given that I would also be indoors for half/most of the time in Korea!

Here are what I got from their online boutique:
I love everything about this outer coat actually.
How unique and military-troops looking it is, the two flaps on the shoulders, the rich blue colour, the cutting as well as the material etc.
Quality is good and if you prefer a shorter coat, this will be a nice choice!


I fell right in love with this piece straight away while browsing through their site,
a great piece to be worn as the layer before my coat.

Don't mind the puffiness in some of the pics above, because i have like 4 layers of clothing (well, not that thick ones!) below in fact.
Knew it's a pretty piece and cool thing that the cut still gave me some shape especially at the waist given that I had so many layers.
Material is good and I can also wear this in Singapore!

Got this military blazer for normal wear as well.
It feels better than the pictures for sure, and i love the shoulder pads and the thickness cum quality of this piece.
In my opinion, the thickness can be worn for weather around 18 Degrees Celsius,
or if you are afraid of cold like me, can wear just in our shopping malls!


Last but not least, you wouldn't want to miss out this real stylish blazer too.
Material is not as thick as those winter wear, and definitely fits our local Singapore weather – in office or on the roads etc.
Love the trendiness of this!

You might want to take a look at what they have in stores for you,
but they would also like to extend two promotions to you!
1. Get $5 shopping credits when you sign up with this account HERE (can sign up and use it next time)
2. Free The Faceshop Hand Cream worth S$9.90 with purchase of S$100 or more (while stocks last)

Enjoy shopping babes!

I got my nails done at trusty Pink Parlour a few days ago for Christmas!
Would have done up a more fanciful design but was rushing off to town,
so did a simple shimmery shade with a light pink tone instead.

It's always nice to see the usual staff again for my frequent nails & waxing appointment
and thank you to them for rushing with me. ;)

always feeling pampered at their store.

Waxing time!

Feeling pretty in pink in my dress from Fash Mob too!
It's a pretty piece with a waterfall design in front, hence the unique layering at the bottom part. ;)

The weekend before I flew off was a Sunday Shopping momsie & daughter time in town.
Been a long while since momsie and I did that, and nonetheless, it was an awesome and fruitful day out.


We began with a family lunch as I was craving for dimsum!
Too bad my sister couldn't join as she had to go to school for curriculum.

I have a thing for flowy straight cut bohemian dresses actually,
and this piece is one of my favourite at Fash Mob.
Paired it up with my comfy sandals plus a scarf and I am ready for shopping all day long ;p

Love custard buns!!! <3
I'll at least have two every time.

If you find the background familiar,
you probably can see that I have been visiting town quite a few times recently!

I ran a short errand in town on this particular Friday,
dressed up my favourite of all in Fash Mob's recent collection – military looking one-piece cream dress.
I quite sure it's a gorgeous piece given that i got stopped by a fashion photographer from NY, complimenting the dress sense,
and snapped a couple of pictures!

Would love to get those pictures up here but I have not received them! :(

Anyways, after my errand,
I met up with my parents and hurhur to head over to a new Japanese Restaurant for dinner.

Am a big fan of Tempura(s) and got to know that Ten Tempura is one of the Japanese restaurants that specializes in it.
It is located at The Central @ Clarke Quay, good that it's away from the hustle and bustle, 
and it would be hard to miss it because it's situated conveniently at level one.

I like it that it's a casual dining place, a pretty cozy and relaxed restaurant settings.

Luckily we reached slightly earlier than dinner time, it was crowded by then!

We ordered two mains, but quite a number of sides dishes to try as it looks really appetizing in the menu,
and here are a few that will be a must-try if you are popping over:

1. Japanese egg wrapped with pickles, lettuce, fish eggs, and crispy tempura crumbs.

2. This is a side dish too, a pretty small bowl but I love the texture of the noodles (it's something like a thin udon and has a chewy texture) and the lightness yet tasty sauce accompanying it.
Special thing would be the tempura crumbs sprinkled on top of the noodles. Nice!

3. of course, we are at Ten Tempura and it's needed to try their tempura(s)!
Prawns are juicy and what's special and different from others (explained by the chef and tasted by myself) is the sauce that comes with this.
it tasted rather different from the usual dip and some sort like a combination of savoury cum sweet sauce,
definitely tastier after pouring it all over the tempura.

Let the pics do the talking!


And that's the boss of the restaurant! ;)

Prices are around $15 to $20 for a set meal,
and here's the address if you are a fan of japanese food, tempura and are keen to give it a try!

I finally completed my Christmas Shopping just yesterday in town,
and at the same time, i visited my usual-good-o Salon Vim for a hair cut, colour and treatment just in time for Christmas!

Here's John, my dedicated stylist whom I have been going to for all my hair troubles for almost 2 years!

Got myself a Loreal Spray from the Salon after John's recommendation as I needed one to hold my curls as well as my usual straight but curled ends.
He used it on me after the cut and I like the lightness of it, will try it on my hair this weekend!

And a pic of my done-up hair ;)

Love how refreshed and healthy looking the hair is after the afternoon,
and I really need to master how to curl it at the ends like how John does it for me. heh

After my hair I went to find Leney as she was working at Mandarin Gallery for this week,
Had my shopping all done while waiting for her to end work before we grabbed a bit together.

if you are wondering where did I get this pair of black platform wedges,
they are from and are my current favourite pair in the shoe-drobe! :p
Love the platform in front which makes the wedge more comfortable, and it's light too,
wore this for shopping even!

And given that it's around 10pm, we decided to pop over to Javiers @ cine leisure (Which closes at 11pm)
for our delayed dinner.

Pretty sumptuous for a late night dinner, oops.

We are definitely going back for more,
it's S$8.90 for a plate with a bowl of soup, and you can literally fill anything up from their entire row of hot, cold, raw, cooked and fried food.
But the thing is you can only fill it ONCE.
Quite hilarious to see some plates that are extremely full, like an ice-kachang piling on the plate. heh

Korean BB Make Up Look with Smoochiezz!

Today's entry is all about make up and well,
I am still having the POST-KOREA syndrome so I decided that it shall be something related to that.

We all know Korean girls are known for good skin, good aesthetics enhancements and of course good make up,
and after visiting there, the females there plus Korean Stars are my sources of inspiration for today's make up look!
I'm no professional, but i do have my own set of steps that I picked up from various make up artists,
so it shall be named - Korean BB (By Bea) Look.
Geez. :p

In my opinion,
Korean's make up is defined by the pink lipstick colour and thin tailed eyeliner drawing,
for example:

You can see from these two current popular stars in Korea, Hyori & Goo Hara (from Korean Band Kara).

First and foremost,
you shall be presented with a bareface me….

so there you go!

It's a visual tutorial today,
so here's one to show the table of products that I will be using from.

Everything above (well, if you know this brand you know it…) is from Smoochiezz,
and I love getting makeup from there!
Fuss free, no need to queue, right at your door step, and extensive variety to choose from.

Got this eyeshadow base from Smoochiezz as well which helps in covering my dark circles,
and letting the eyeshadow stays longer than usual.

NYX Triple Eye Shadows in peachy earthy tones,
i can never get enough of these eyeshadow shades!

NYX Bronze Smokey Eyeshadows.

For the base, I decided to try a new product from Maybelline instead, and it's called the BB MOUSSE!

The thing about mousse that I always need to be careful is the pressing of nozzle part,
so i definitely had to make sure I don't exert too much strength and release the nozzle quickly to prevent over dose of mousse appearing..

So what I did was to get some onto my palm, and then spread it over my face with my fingers..

My verdict for the Maybelline BB Mousse:
I like the coverage and texture, it does help to cover my pores and uneven skin tone pretty well!
But do be careful not to apply too much thinking that it's mousse!
The mousse will turn into liquid the next moment, and it dries up pretty fast, so what i recommend is to dot it all over your face evenly,
and then quickly spread them.

A close up of the after mousse application for the face base!

Moving on to the eyes..
After applying the eyeshadow base, It's time for eyeshadows.

Using both the eyeshadow palettes from Smoochiezz, and in sequence..

The steps here are how I usually apply my eyeshadow,
and the last step is pretty essential for me so as to blend the lightest shade and darkest shade so that it gives a gradual shade.

Moving on, these are brushes that will aid me in my make up.

And I love the eyeliner brush that Smoochiezz carries,
it's awesome for drawing neat eyeliner and for this time round,
it definitely helps in drawing the thin fine tail at the corner of my eyes.

Thanks to the good eyeliner brush from them!

Blusher would be next,
and for my Korean look, I got this NYX Powder Blush in a rose pink shade,
which can be a natural shade for most of our daily looks as well.

Applying with the blusher brush in an upward circular motion from cheeks to the ears..

Last but not least,
to complete my korean look, I need the PINK LIPSTICK!

Love this shade of pink, it's NYX Round lipstick in Strawberry Milk Shade (sounds real yummy or kissable huh! :p)

And tadah, i'm done..
so let's do a recap of my non drawn face:

And after the KOREAN BB LOOK...






But If you realised,
it's a lighter version in the sense that the eyeshadow colours were not too harsh,
and I didn't line the bottom of my eyes.
Also, there are no falsies for any of the pictures above!

Hope you like this look,
and for all make up products above (except the Maybelline BB Mousse, this you can get it at Watsons!) are from Smoochiezz!
check out their for more ;)

Please share this look if you like it! Or let me know what kinda look(s) you are keen on seeing too! :)

And for ladies who usually tuned in for Outfits Of The Week,
here are two pieces that are looking gorgeous for your upcoming parties for sure!

A scrunched tube dress in navy blue from Eternity Loft that has a simple but flattering figure hugging design!

If you are not a fan of bodycons, you might like to check this royal purple dress from Eternity Loft that can be worn in two ways in fact,
either criss-cross at the front or not. It has the design at the waist area to make sure it gives you shape!

Black Friday at Jipaban

Every year around this time, I would really look forward to a particular Friday to do some mega shopping
as there are some places that would have uber great discounts in stores! Well, and why Friday is
because that particular Friday is the Black Friday of the year!

I am not sure if you heard it before or not, but Black Friday is very very known in the States, which is :
1. The day after their (the states) Thanks Giving Day
2. A Friday, of course
3. Marks the beginning of Christmas shopping season
4. With that in mind, stores usually have uber amazing discounts on that particular Friday (no joke, like
50-70% discount for some!)
5. But it’s not a public holiday day there, but heard that employers give off to their employees!

How I wish Singapore has such season officially as well, and that could be really great!
But well, I shall not complain where there are actually a few stores in SG that adhere to the Black Friday
and have discounts in their stores on that particular Friday too, one such now that I know is Jipaban!!

I understand we all don’t have off on this particular Friday, and one thing really awesome that I got to
know is that Jipaban will be starting the One full day of shopping only on Friday 12Midnight, so we
can have the full whole Friday to shop!!

Black Friday Sales Includes:

they have
1. 25% off female/male fashion
2. 10% off books, gifts, dvd, blurays
3. 10% off games

Just for ONE DAY!
I already told hurhur that I wanna stay in on this Friday and there should be no reason for him
to stop me from doing shopping! :p

Excited me already went to surf around to see what I wanna get on this Friday, hopefully there
will still be stocks!

1. Red bodycon skirt

wanna wear this for my Christmas gatherings this year! Love dressing up to the theme, and this looks
really pretty with a stunning shade of red.

2. Bangle

Love the design and the combination of gold, black and white! Can totally match it with my red skirt

3. Vintage Ring

and I could totally get entire Christmas outfit here, love this vintage ring, gold, to go with the bracelet
and skirt.

4. Wedges

I always adore wedges, they are the most comfy shoes of all yet giving you the height! Hehe can match
this with my skirt as well!

5. Clutch/bag

to go with my entire outfit and most of my outfits, am eyeing this bag!!

6. Tweed Flatcap

Well, don’t say im a shopaholic girlfriend, but I went to shop for things for hurhur too!! We are
planning to go japan next year and I think he will look good in this cap!

weee, all this at a discount on this Friday. Don’t say I didn’t share good stuff!
Hope you can get yours too!

Everything Pretty: Tangem, Smoochiezz & Weekbits!

Yes, here is a huge picture of myself to kick start the entry,
and I bet you must be guessing what is exactly the main topic derived from the above picture.
I am sure your guess is either the Makeup? Jewelry?
Be it which is your guess, but it's definitely NOT the Tiffany and co necklace (It was my valentine's day gift and I featured that before! ;p).

So for those that guessed the latter.. BINGO!

I just got myself two pieces of jewelry from Tangem (and I am still loving their designs!),
and they never fail to surprise me with really simple yet exquisite pieces.
The first two pairs of earrings from them have absolutely maxed out their value because I have been wearing them almost 3 days a week?
Whereas the other earrings are sitting nicely and neatly on the shelf, and only leaving the shelf like probably once (half) a month.
Even momsie likes their designs and I thought i lost one pair until I found out that it was kept in her drawer!!

So the recent two designs i got were:

Glam Gem Earrings, SGD $38 (that is looking like a pair of SGD $380 earrings),
sterling silver with Cubic Zirconia stones.

and a gorgeous desire ring, SGD $38 (oh.. this looks like a SGD$3800 ring heh!),
sterling silver with Cubic Zirconia stones.

Anyway, i need not mention much about them as you can just check out at the website,
or check me out with the earrings & rings below! :p

The pictures speak for itself, and I can assure you that the quality is good
(given that I already own 6 pieces of jewelry from them over half a year to a year!).

*Additionally, they have just launched a new Avant Garde Range from New York.
And i'm here for a reason- to share a piece of good news to you!
Tangem is having a Christmas Sale where all items are at a SGD$5 discount,
if you buy 2 or more items, you can enjoy a further 10% discount by keying in code: "savemore" at checkout. :)


Today you ladies are in for a treat in everything pretty, we have jewelry and also, make up!
Well, before i begin, I'm just gonna say this post will feature a lot of yours truly today ;p

Here's a huge one again.
I always love how the falsies look from the semi side to precise side view!

As you can see, the shot above is a full make up look, with everything from the base to the lips.
I recently discovered an online website- Smoochiezz, which makes available a huge range of beauty products,
and what's more awesome is that I found out about this wonderful brand of make up and got the chance to try it as well! 

The name of this brand is called NYX, and apparently it's a famous make up brand in the States.
I didn't know that but Selene knows about it and was intrigued to know where did i got them from as the brand is not exactly carried in Singapore!
So in case you are dying to try out NYX, have been eying something from NYX, or want to see what NYX has,
they are all available online at Smoochiezz!

In the above picture, the bulk of make up was gotten from Smoochiezz,
and yes, I got myself some neutral colours from their site as I would need them for my standard normal makeup look!

1. NYX auto eyebrow pencil, in dark brown, EP05. SGD $7.50 (from Smoochiezz)

1. NYX 10-Colour eyeshadow Palette, in catwalk shade ESP10C04, SGD$14. Love ALL the shades from this palette. (from Smoochiezz)
2. NYX Skinny Eye Marker,  SGD$12.50 (from Smoochiezz)
3. Falsies (my own)

1. Mac blusher in my usual shade, peachy keen, SGD $21.50 (you can get them at Smoochiezz too)


1. CLARINS Skin Illusion Foundation, SPF 10, Shade 110 Honey, SGD $60. My favourite foundation so far! (from Clarins)

1. NYX Matte Lipstick, Sierra Shade, MLS12, SGD $11. (from Smoochiezz)

To visit Smoochiez, click HERE.

Here are more pictures of the after make up look!


Last but not least,

This time it's all about beauty- make up, and on how we do a festive make up look! ;)
Used a couple of similar products of the above but mixed in some latest products from Maybelline too!

I actually purchased and upgraded my video editing software, and spent almost 3 full days just for that few minutes video! goodness.
Really hope you guys like it, and please give me your two cents worth, a like, a share on facebook, a comment or any form of encouragement!!
It would definitely mean a lot to me and so that I know you guys are watching and I should spend more time doing more videos. hahaha. ;)

P.S: Well… Non- make up faces are revealed in the video!! Don't be startled!

The Nuffnang Journey & Boomerang



The blog has been my baby for the past 5 years, and is absolutely one which i share my many countless happy memories and sometimes… sadness,
but I probably didn't get too much into the latter because i don't think it's good to get you feeling like an emo-elmo everytime when I am being an emo-elmo huh.
Especially if i blog about sadness stuff on a Sunday night, and i reckon you will just outcast my blog every weekend cuz it will make your mondays even blue-er.
Well, we are all humans and to err is human,
there are definitely ups and downs which I myself go through quite a fair bit too.

But today, some thoughts just got me feeling thankful and contented,
and it feels really nice to be taking moments to truly appreciate what has been going on,
together with whatever good has happened in your life.
Many a time, when i'm in this mode, i would realise that the downs brought me up to who i am today,
and gratitude to the good definitely surpasses the negativity of the downs,
perhaps, some goods wouldn't have happened without the downs..

Righto, so the blog is definitely one thing that I couldn't be more than thankful of,
and i just be really amazed how my passion got me thus far, and can actually become such a great thing that i look forward to do everyday with tremendous enjoyment.
With this in mind, I must say there is one company that gave me the opportunities to experience more than what i could have,
and it's none other than Nuffnang.

I believe you guys have all heard of Nuffnang (NN) or are already in the family, and I suppose i'm one of the newest addition to the NN family.
They have been a team of people who we work closely with in regards to the commercial side,
but experiencing the commercial side in our most personal way is the catch to why I am thankful for them too.
Because we get to try out different interesting products, services or events by ourselves personally,
and yet at the same time, sharing the experiences in our most truthful and honest views, i swear.

Am sure we all don't just blog for the sake of just promoting stuff with all the technical facts and purely positivity,
but instead, its the first hand direct experiences we have and want to share because it might just be as helpful or interesting to yoy.
That's probably how we make sure you would come back to read and at the same time,
not just us but for you to also get hold of good deals to experience them yourself too!

So here's my journey with nuffnang in pictures, and
thank you Nuffnang for all the wonderful opportunities you gave me so far since months ago. :)

1. Being a true blue foodie, you can imagine how excited i was to get my first ever assignment with PIZZA HUT,
trying the latest pasta in town with a bunch of new great friends!

2. Another that is one of a kind! when can we all experience a 4 course gourmet dinner by Mcdonalds?!!
this was an eye-opener for me and yes, we got to try the mcgrill burger before the launch and share this piece of news with you guys in advance!

3. Goodness, now you can see what i put on weight (some said i got slightly slimmer now hahaha but i seriously dont think so, cuz if that is really true, i am really plump back then!! -.-")
cuz nuffnang feeds me well. Dove was uber generous and i got to try a whole lot of new chocolate flavours. I believe some of you guys read that entry before, and chocolate-lover readers loved this! ;)

4. hahhahaha, food again but this time round it was gummies by Katjes!!
OK, i didn't realise i got quite a number of food assignments and do i really have that foodie face?
Yes or no i would still think it's a good thing, can eat is a fortunate and enjoyable thing (福).

5. My first ever headphones!!! LOVE the colour and until now i am still using it.
If i wasn't with nuffnang, I wouldn't know that philips has such good and stylish headphones. now you know it too. ;)

6. Got to keep in touch with gorgeous friends once again, and this time we get to have fun together trying out gorgeous pretty things!
Not the cupcakes nor balloons, but it was for Estee Lauder's new skin care product, the skintone illuminator!
Good stuff, good company.

7. phew! awesome to try out another skincare brand- cellnique with a range of products that helped to minimize my fine lines and improve my skin!
I mean, i wouldn't even know this product can be really good that i actually re-purchased it after i had the chance to try it on my face.
Thanks to nuffnang! ;)

8. Very thankful for this opportunity to be sent overseas to Hong Kong Disneyland!
Never expected this at all, and again, to the greatness of Nuffnang team,
thankyou for letting me have so much fun with my bestie girlfriend at a place that I have never been to before!

9. And the singtel robinsons event which i got to know a table of gorgeous new friends like the above,
and taking pictures with tough fresh meat (you know which picture am i referring to, hahaha).
Well and got to know these latest news and fashion of singtel and robinsons respectively without even reading the news!

These good-ness for these.

I finally upgraded my macbook pro aesthetically, you must be wondering what was it
(but no i didn't do any plastic surgery to it by dismantling any of the parts though i dont know if there is even a possibility to do so),
but instead i did an enhancement to it all thanks to a friend, Sabrina, who recommended me to do it.

I WISHED i knew about this earlier,
and that could seriously help save my macky (yes i named my macbook pro macky, and yes masculine cuz opposite sex attracts :p) from all those scratches by yours truly unintentionally.
Yes i repeat – Unintentionally!!
Apparently, anyone that sees Macky goes like:

1. "wah, how long ago did you buy your laptop?"
2. "!!!! what happened to your laptop??" (for friends that know it wasn't too long ago)
3. " did you buy that 5 years ago?" (with pun intended, cuz the model was out only like 3 years ago i think!! boohoo.)

Anyone that knows me knows that i'm super attached to Macky, carrying it almost everywhere I go,
and using it almost 16 hours a day everyday.
No doubt those scratches came along and accumulated until one fine day,
when the battery went flat, couldn't use and i was outside waiting for someone and had time to spare,
i took a serious look at it all round….

goodness.. no joke, i didn't realise that it was so uber worn out. :(
Feeling heart ache cuz i got Macky as a present for myself after savings for months, and paying it right at one shot I still remember.
And that's like 4 digits off my pockets instantly.

So anyways, im not quite a big fan of having designs on my laptop (eg. gmasking it all over with pretty prints),
pretty much a guy for this, and i like it original and simple without doing plastic surgery for my belongings especially gadgets,
(except maybe for my iphone cuz i love changing covers + glossy/matte/mirror screen protectors muahahaha).

The only thing i got to protect for Macky is this lovely hard external cover that trish and leney got for me for my birthday last year,
but i recently took it out while i take Macky out as it does add on to quite an amount of weight to the laptop!.
Until Sabrina introduced to me to get this particular product that really helps to take great care of macky,
and I did some research and was convinced to get this to give macky something good since i use him EVERYDAY.

Not sure if you heard of it before but it's called ,
pretty popular among the mac lovers cuz they do this particular awesome protective layer for just Mac,
and for just quite a few mac products such as Macbook pro, air and ipad 2 as they are specially customized for those models.

I saw it online at first on a picture that my friend posted and thought that it's just a mere normal protector sheet only,
and not really seeing any thing special until one day i got to touch and feel the real thing.
So my friend went on to tell me how good this product is,
and that it's not just a protector sheet but is one that is TEAR-RESISTANT and FINGERPRINT-RESISTANT.
Another factor that got me surprised was that there's a need to "install" it on the laptop and not just take and paste sheet,
good to know that cuz it means that the sheet must be something quite durable or special that what i have expected.

SEE!! Macky could have been saved from those scratches!! ;\

Went down to the main store to get it done – DG Lifestyle at vivocity.

honoured to get the lady boss to help me!! :p
No worries, all installation will be done for you by the professional staff.


Here's me all dressed up in corporate printed work dress, and holding on to macky!
Love prints and this is definitely one dress which goes well with blazers for corporate and formal events too.

Done!! Thanks for introducing me to this, Sabrina! :)

My mom actually asked me if i bought a new laptop -.-,
but that is definitely awesome to be asked, woohoo, it's worth it then!! :p

Was at the stall for about half hour to get macky all covered up in a set of - two sheets (one front and back),
and this sheet is known to be originated from protecting CARS!! (even hurhur knows about it)
Powerful huh. So this was also one reason that i was convinced to get it cuz it can really protect the laptop.
Well, though macky has pretty severe marks when you look closer but…. better late than never!!!
Afterall, laptop already costs quite a bit to get, might as well top up a bit more to make it of better quality- to last for a long period of time.

Check out my "new" macky equipped with !!
looking DIFFERENT and SMART from the normal macs (especially when in starbucks,
i usually see many using a mac and mine is unique with the GLOSSY surface yet looking original!! hehehe).

Weekend brunches never fail to brighten up my day, and this one last week was no exception.
Val, apple and myself arranged a brunch catch up session on Monday, the long weekend and decided to try Boomerang @ Robertson Quay.
We were rather looking forward to try out the food there as it was one of Val Aussie boss's favourite places of all for meals,
so i reckon it must be something good!


I was told that Boomerang is popular amongst the Caucasians and as well as friendly for big group/ kids.

Here comes our food!

Milk Chocolate drink (S$6)

Strawberry smoothie: Strawberries, yogurt, milk, honey (S$10)

Mango Smoothie: Mango, milk, yogurt, honey (S$10)  + my very pretty nails, read more about it at the end of this entry! :)

The "Bondi" (S$15)
Val had this, and she mentioned the bread was really good, and i suppose the avocado and tomato wouldn't differ much from else where.
But we were rather disappointed with the mushrooms (we are great fans of mushrooms), and they were rather poorly marinated and cooked that day,
the taste had a bitter aftermath which wasn't really to our likings. :(

Beef hash (S$16)
Apple had this and she likes it! I tried a mouthful of her beef, which was some sort panfried together with bacon and ham,
and it was indeed delectable. Good choice and well done with the poached eggs.

Egg's benedicts (S$17)
The set came with the potatoes only but i added S$3 to top up for the mushrooms.
Like I mentioned earlier on, it was pretty much a waste cuz we didn't finish the bulk of the mushrooms in the end.

Sticky Date pudding (S$12)
The ice cream was good, but the cake was a lil tough, but i suppose it was because it wasn't warm enough,
but overall this dessert is reasonably good.

Love my strawberry smoothie, and this is worth a try!
Wore this white top with gold shimmery design by and I love the intricate designs at the gold area,
especially the sequins all sew on one by one together,
and this could very well be one of my Christmas outfits for the upcoming gatherings!

With val dear. :)

And apple pie :)

Boomerang is a good place to hang out with family and friends in fact,
but after visiting it, i heard that they are better for their mains instead of the all day breakfast,
so perhaps you can try the mains and do share with me what's good if you do visit there!



Got this versatile pleated bottom dress from as well,
and the quality of this is really good.
Wanted to wear it more formal with just a think sleek belt but decided to wear it in a more casual way -
with the thicker brown belt!

Bold colours are my favourite and so are colour blocks in those awesome stunning colours!
This top from has quite a unique cut at the bottom, looks good when tuck out too,
but i love to pair tops with high waisted.
Had such a hard time deciding the colour!

Mom likes me in this dress and said both the cut and design look demure on me. hehehe
does have great sense of style for us girls!


Not only does clothes get me excited,
anything pretty gets me over the moon too!

As seen above, my so-in-love nails are done by my friend, Jenny,
who has a GORGEOUS home-based nail salon.

Known her for a while, and she never fails to surprise me with her creativity and passion with nails,
and this time I did a quick gelish with her, and i wanted something cutesy yet having a LOUD base colour,
so there you go!

It's always enjoyable visiting Jenny and catching up with her,
and we have so much to talk about.
Cuz of that, every nail session for at least 2-3 hours seems like just half hour as time just literally flew!

Anyways, here's her GORGEOUS GORGEOUS ROOM!!!

good thing about home-based nail salon is that you really feel so cozy just like your are at home.

love the chandelier and the humongous chair!

Suddenly pink looks really nice to me hahaha.

entertainment during your nail session. how pampered.

great variety of colours just for ya!

one reason why jenny is awesome, she has won competitions and yes, she deserves it all. ;)

my before- very untidy i know. :(

after! gelish polka dot nails!
