The Perfect Me-Time Companion

Something came as a surprise at my door step today.

A little package that was standing alone at the side,

wrapped in an elegant paper holder.

As simple it might look, the word “Dove” at the corner says it all,

I know there’s definitely something amazing inside.

Just like what I have expected,
Dove packaged these four delectable flavours of chocolate together,
and each chocolate bar is wrapped elegantly in a shiny wrapper that looks absolutely premium.
I remember eating Dove chocolate since I was a kid,
and it has been one of the top few choices of chocolates as always!

As what the slogan says,
Dove creates the purest, silkiest and highest quality chocolate that deliver delicious and lingering taste,
and I definitely second that.

They are always known for the whole pure chocolate bar,
and it’s the signature one by the way.
The ones that has no fillings (eg. Nuts, etc),
and you can totally savour the whole chocolatey taste right in your mouth.

I vividly remember the pure dove chocolate bars that I used to eat were indeed smooth,
rich and melt in your mouth upon a bite of it!

Guess it might be a girl’s thing,
But chocolate is totally irresistible!

Look at how excited I get to try out these flavours,

and they are almost everywhere with me as a snack to keep whenever I go after I received them!

Mommykins caught me eating chocolate while doing work!

Even the next day when I go to school for project,
it came in as a motivation for me during breaks in between, teehee.
Chcocolates are said to give you energy and perk you up! :p

Spot the Dove chocolate!

A great snack to match my usual tea time!
I love drinking teas and apart from biscuits, I didn’t realize that chocolate goes really
well as a snack with tea too.

Magazines, books, tea, chocolate… Purrrrrfectttttt!

Not only that, very conveniently, I slipped a bar into my bag/clutch wherever I go for
the next few days! :p Love snacking!

Being a HUGE FAN of chocolates,
I can’t say how excited I was to taste Dove’s new range of chocolate. Geez
Here’s the four hot favourites of DOVE latest range of chocolates!

They have four delightful flavours:

1) Milk Chocolate
2) Crispy
3) Dark Chocolate
4) Hazelnut, Almond and Raisin

Like I previously mentioned, Dove is known for their smooth silky pure chocolate, and
hence, I was told that the milk chocolate is the Best Seller currently.

The milk chocolate was the first that I couldn’t wait to try after remembering how tasty it
was when I ate it when I was younger.
And yessss! It still tastes as good or even better!
No doubt it’s the top seller in stores.
But hey, I bet you must be thinking that it will be very costly for a bar,
(yes I know, they have really elegant wrapping!! :P ),
and it’s actually in stores now at an absolute affordable price of mere $1.50 each!

Given that, I really urge you to why not just try out ALL the above four flavours?

It doesn’t require a huge pinch from your wallet,
and you get to enjoy each flavour,
which I am sure you will find your NEW FOUND FAV SNACK after that. Heh :p

Certainly a great snack for you to indulge in anytime and anywhere,
especially your ME-TIME moments in which I know everybody will have
and don’t say I didn’t warn you, its addictive!

DOVE® Chocolate – the perfect me-time moment companion with its uniquely silkysmooth chocolate.

Not only myself, but I spotted Dove on the streets….

Stay tuned for the next post on it,
there will be great stuff coming your way! :D

Secret to your Skincare Beauty

I'm back with something good to share today!

Well, as you know the previous experience I had with Bio-essence BB Cream?
I remember quite a few of you guys were enquiring about the base i had for the TVC,
and yes, no doubt the actual product was in fact the BB cream by Bio-Essence. ;)

As you know, Sun Block is a necessity for girls,
and for those who constantly have to put sunblock to protect the skin,
followed by the foundation to cover the blemishes,
why not just save the time and combine the both together?!

This time round, I'll be introducing in detailed this range of BB cream,
and it might be your next choice for your skincare beauty! ;)

I bet you heard of people associating skin with the orange skin,
and usually for those whose concern are huge pores, uneven skin, blemishes,
there is a need to constantly touch up the base to make sure the skin stays good at any moment.

So lemme illustrate the effectiveness of these 3 new BB cream specially formulated by Bio-essence!

Let's meet Jessabelle, the Orange. :)

muhaha, pretty?

Unfortunately, these are her daily, uncured concerns. :(

Let us see what these 3 BB cream could aid in her complexion.

Introducing the 3 different types, from left to right,
Bio Multi-Effect BB cream, Bio Platinum BB Cream, Aqua BB Cream.

Yes, definitely with these 3 different kinds, it serves different purposes.

For the first one, the Bio Multi-Effect BB Cream,
the aim of this is Coverage.
It has a purpose of achieving Flawless Skin and Long Lasting Coverage for any person!
Furthermore, there is a spf 25, protecting your skin from the harmful UV rays,
as well as Bio Energy Fluid and herbal extract for nourishing.

Secondly, for the Bio Platinum BB Cream,
this is in fact, the most popular choice of all,
due to the special ingredients of Platinum to revitalize, and Tanaka to Whiten.

The aim of this is Whitening, and at the same time,
protects your skin from the UV rays with spf 25.
Definitely coverage, but slightly more natural than the previous one,
which has uber strong degree of coverage.
A good choice if you hope to achieve both coverage and whitening!

Last but not least, its the Aqua BB Cream.
For those who are fair enough or have really dry skin,
this is actually a very good choice for you.
Though there is no spf constituted in this,
but it has a Hyaluronic Acid, which is a highly active ingredient to moisturize.
And yes, the aim of this is Moisturize!
It is the most natural of all, and absolutely great for dinner functions.

Let's experience it with Jessabelle.

And yes you know, her main problem would be the huge pores and bumpy skin.

Trying out the different BB Creams to see which suits her better.

Tadah, here's the verdict.

You get different kinds of effect from the different BB Creams,
depending on what is your need actually.

As you can see, the first one on the left - Aqua BB Cream has a darker tone,
due to fact that it has no spf but yet it aims to provide you with high moisturizing effect,
and the most natural skintone on your face.

For the Platinum BB Cream in the middle,
the achieved effect is in between the moisturize and coverage with spf,
so its actually a very balanced shade which fulfill the needs of majority of us!
You can judge by the amount of coverage and colourtone.

The last one on the right would be the Multi-effect BB Cream,
this is obviously the one that has the stronger coverage!
You can see it from Jessabelle's skin that those bumpy surfaces and huge pores,
they are all covered and eased out well by the texture of the BB Cream!

Here's the platinum BB cream that i tried it on my own skin.

Squeeze a bit.

and start to spread and dap..

yes, you can see that it blends and sets into the skintone well after seconds!

if you wanna get a few tips on how to apply the BB Cream more effectively,
I was told that this pamphlet is circulating in stores now or soon, grab a copy! Teehee ;)

Like i've said, i am a user of the BB cream to protect and smooth out my skin whenever i head out too.
So here's me.

Those pores, scars and veins which i would hope to wipe them out!

And after applying the Platinum BB Cream.

Done! :p

And guess what?
A Taiwan magazine actually did a thorough review on the different brands of BB Cream,
and introduced the various highlights of each.
Bio-essence BB cream is ranked one of the highest!

And I have have have to introduce to you this place that I have recently discovered after pootpoots brought me there.

It is absolutely one place that is in my TOP LIST for food,
and after knowing it 3 weeks back,
i actually went back twice already and i am going back on Saturday tomorrow for lunch again!
Totally loving it.

You might have been there,
and yes its Royal China at Raffles Hotel.

Very magnificent Tiffany and co place,
and a peaceful and comfortable place for an afternoon lunch.

my date <3

The awesome highlight for this place is not only the comfy settings,
but in my opinion, the dim sum (yes, its a dimsum restaurant) is absolute of Top Quality Standard.
This has gotta be the best dimsum place I have ever been to.

I couldn't stop raving about it since the moment i took a first bite. Heh.

We ate quite a few dishes,
and i'll just pick out those that are a MUST ORDER and simply divine!

The signature Royal China chee chiong fun.
One if char siew, one is prawn, and one is scallop (love the scallops one!)

The fillings of this is mango + egg yolk, absolutely appetizing.

Love prawns, and har gao is a must have during dimsum isn't it?


Their char siew xiu!
i am never a fan of this whenever i have dimsum
but the ones they have are simply simply gratifying and heavenly.
Crossed my heart and swear, please do try them, you'll fall in love with it with just one bite.

A very very satisfied us!

And loving the new outfit!

It's black friday and have a good weekend you!

Of Glorious Food

It's officially the end of the whole term, and if nothing goes wrong,
It should be time to look for a job for good.

Feeling a tad numb over everything that's happening right now,
seems like it has been a whole mad rush for the past few months, with low and high tides,
and I am kinda at the crossroads now.

I swear I haven had the most comfortable sleep for the longest time,
and seesh, it's extremely disturbing, trust me.
Waking up like almost 6 times within a two-hour interval nap which feels like five-hour instead whenever taken,
or waking up in the morning everyday with a heavy heart and mind is insane too.

Kay… nuff said. December would be the time to recuperate after my last paper on 1st december.

Amidst all the busy busy, we still all find time to gather for birthday gatherings,
and thank goodness for the usuals for keeping me sane, sane, sane!

I recently discovered an AWESOME korean BBQ place to dine in,
thanks to a friend as well as a reader who introduced this to me.
Korean fans, you have to, no… Must visit this place for Korean BBQ!
It's uber pocket-friendly, and definitely quality is there.
I mean, it should be given the fact that it's run by Koreans.

The phone number and address is there.

The name of the place is 2D1N Soju Bang,
and they have both Alacarte and Buffet Style.

Since its our dear girl, Yalin's birthday, we decided to go for the buffet one instead,
a time for us to eat till our hearts content and catch up like nobody's business. Heh.

The entrance and the settings.

Woohoo, love my retro romper from LB!

The sweetest lovebirds again. Teehee

Caleen, poor thing she has eye infection. But that's a cool degreed specs.

Our longggg table.

The food area.

You might think it looks small and probably choices are pretty little..

You are wrong! There were a wide array of different kinds of meat,
and I love their marinated ones!

Just starting…

Our "chef" for our table.

I must emphasize that this buffet is ultra worth it,
look at the different kinds of good food!

The happy girls

The  guys with their full-filled tummies. hee.

I bet you must be eager to find out the price of the buffet,
It's $23.50 for each pax, real worth it and you definitely absolutely have to try it.
But do make a booking before you go ya!

The only two drawbacks are that, please wear shorts/pants together with sandals/pumps etc,
that will allow you to move around conveniently.
The area that we were seated is literally flat on the ground with no compartment to place our legs,
so a couple of the girls had a hard time maneuver around.

And if you think pepper lunch stinks you,
hmmm, maybe you have to reconsider before going for this. oops :P

TEL: 6220 7119

Current favourite romper!

We headed over to somewhere near for drinks,
and apparently Yalin brought us to this chillax place that has a countryside feel and i like it.

Will definitely go back for more drinks next time!

We all shared a cake from Rive Gauche for her,
and love the huge strawberries and the puff surrounding the cake.

wish wish wish..

Happy moment…

The girlies!

* * *

Something came as a surprise for me a week back,
and I am simply loving it..

Been wanting to get one for the longest, and yes, though the trend might begin from Sex and the City,
but after owning one from MyLittleBow (thankyou!!), i seriously think every girl should get one too.

The name part represents you meaningfully, and I love it how we can customise the fonts, the colour (gold/silver),
or adding in any other designs to beautify this meaningful yet beautiful piece of work.
It's no doubt, versatile as well and i literally wear it almost with all outfits, love it to the max!

Did i mention they sell much cheaper than what you see in retail boutiques?
I would think this is one of the perfect gifts to get for your girlfriends or friends for occasions like Christmas,
having to say it, Christmas is coming peepos! :D

P.S: They need about a couple of weeks in adv to manufacture it, so do order early!

Poots has one too, and we are both simply loving it! <3

Here's another place that I am gonna share for Japanese food,
I'm a huge fan of japanese food, and i bet might be aware of this place already..

Remember the prominent jap restaurant at level 5 of Far east plaza called Wasabi Tei?

I bet you know its known for its snobbish and arrogant customer service,
but people go back there because of the quality of food and value of it.

For those who doesn't know, apparently he sold off wasabi tei to another owner,
and left without taking his restaurant name together,
so i think its in fact a good thing for the new owner since he already has a good base of customers already.

so the old owner relocated his jap business, and opened a new restaurant at 9 Mohamed Sultan Road,
and its known as Chikuwa Tei.
i got all up excited visiting there as i love the food previously at their small lil shop.

The place. Pretty spacious.

That Chef.

The familiar appetizer.

My favourite cod fish.

Salmon Sahimi ftw.

My hot dinner date, June.

The Splendid 22nd

Proud of own photoshopping for this picture that include a vintage tinge!

I thought the vintage will look best at this kinda summer outdoor scenes,
and if you are interested to learn how to do as well, you can take a look at this person's guide .
Hope it helps for you. :)

I believe you saw a couple of entries back that the group planned a surprise birthday party for the october babies,
yixiong, joseph and myself, whom we all have birthdays just 2 days apart from each other.
Didn't exactly go into details then, so I'll do it now. :)

One year has passed since the last time the group gave me a heartfelt surprise on my 21st birthday,
and ah! I think I didn't blog about my 21st last year!

But in anycase, last year's surprise was equally awesome,
they got a chauffeur to specially came downstairs to pick me up to somewhere secretive,
and gathered ALL my loved ones from everywhere together, 
including getting my parents to tell a white lie (which apparently they did a very good job on it),
but my adorable granny leaked out a bit by calling me accidentally to find my sister,
and acted like there was a bad reception when she realised i was the one on the line.

This year's was something different, and yes, another surprise planned by the group!
I can't say how thankful am i to have met these angels in my life.
You guys are an awesome rocking bunch and yes, you know you're loved by me! :)

Here was what happened for that quiet and simple afternoon…


I was told that we were going t have a pinic.

Poots came to give me a lift to a secret part of Botanical Gardens,
which apparently located at another far end of the park,
and not entered by the normal route.

Normally I would ask the girlfriends if they needed help,
or if whoever are delegated with different task and what's mine as well.
But this time, I followed suit, as I wasn't much involved in the planning due to busy schedule the previous week,
and leney was exceptionally mum about this outing as well :p

Nothing was told to me,
neither was I aware if there was something different that day,
I just know there will be a picnic.
Upon reaching, I was persuaded to wear a blind fold,
and that's when i knew the group was up to something!

Me with poots, Joseph with Apple.

Heh! We were led to the park with our blind folds on,
and along the way Poots kept laughing and telling me that people who saw the scene was giggling away,
well, i would have too! hahaha

Yi xiong was the first to reach,
and when i was browsing the photos, i can't help but burst out laughing at this one.
As they were still setting up the place, YX was led to that bench to wait,
and he looked as though he was meditating/ rather kidnapped at put at a lonely corner. :p

Well. he shifted shortly!

More pictures along the way…

the group got ready a tripod and camera.

Preparing to give the surprise with the colourful balloons and party hats!

Taken before we reached.

And the surprise was going to be unveiled soon..

The cute groupie preparing..

And finally its time to unveil…

hahaha "SUPPLIES"!!!

They all rushed forward shouting loudly heard happy birthdays and we were presented with balloons!

The groupie sure knows how to make each of us feel loved. Teehee :)
Food was prepared with effort and love by each of them,
and we began feasting shortly after the surprise and enjoyed the rest of the afternoon under the sunny sky.

Love this quiet part of botanical gardens!


Special props :p

Balloons, stereo set, ice box.
They did an AWESOME job preparing for the picnic!

<3 pizza hut drumlets!

Pasta salad by poots

egg, chicken sandwiches by Jarrold and Yalin, yum!

Delicious quiches specially made by caleen

The dogs came to party too

Selene says, " who says afro can't wear specs?"

Pupu, Awwww <3

And  smart looking velvet <3

Apple was in -charged of getting KOI bubble tea for each of us,
and she actually asked the individual of us for our favourite bubble tea flavour and called the clementi branch to order.
Guess when she reached she took the plastic bags straight and came,
just to find out that there were 7 cups missing! :(

Leney being our great negotiator, called KOI up to make a complain and demand compensation.
Look at how Jar was impressed by her! and we took videos of her great nego skills,
but hahah, will keep that private and confidential :P

I must say,
Kudos to KOI and its service!
The lady boss actually came all the way down specially just to deliver the 7 missing cups to us.


Koi overdose

More pictures below, so do wait for them to load and enjoy!



Poots got us 3-inch sin expensive chocolate cake!
She knows I have been wanting to try this, awww :)


Our motto,
birthday people shall get special birthday treatments (yes, afro)

Love you guys! <3


Did i mention i was not feeling well for the past few days,
and was down with a cough and a flu.
the groupie and myself actually spent two nights at MBS a few days back,
and I believe it must be due to the haze and the excessive inhale of it at sky garden.

*Vintage Bag from Ascentee

Checking out of the hotel at the last day.
Still lovin that place.

Some random moments during last week!

Visited Katong Village for some good food.

With Yalin, preparing and at KatongVillage.

Leney loves the goodies from this place,
especially the dumplings, have you tried them before?
i thought it was quite highly priced!

The two dear girls arranged a simple birthday dinner with me last week,
and we went to this restaurant that Selene and I wanted to try previously.

Its called Nolboo Hangari Galbi at Orchard Central (OC) Level 8,
didn't know that there were so many restaurants located in OC,
and I recently discovered quite a couple of nice ones there.
Surprisingly, the restaurants get really crowded during dinner time,
and fortunately we are able to reserve seats. :)

I was extremely late due to caught up in a shoot before the dinner,
and by the time i reached there it was near to 10pm. :(

Thank god for the two dear girlfriends,
who showered me with patience and love,
and waited for me for two whole hours, saving food for me too.
Love you, awesome girlfriends!!

I didn't use to like korean food until the time when i went Korea (at the start of this year),
and I totally digged into korean BBQ and bibimbap since the time I came back.
Other than the yummy seoul Korean restaurant in The Central,
this has gotta be the next favourite one!

Anybody has recommendations for good and reasonable priced korean BBQ restaurant?


The rice cake with seafood wasn't exactly the best choice,
and three of us actually feel that we can give it a miss the next time if we go there.

But the bibimbap was good!
Guess what? They have vermicelli (my favourite!!) in hotpot (like bibimbap style),
and I told myself its a must order if i managed to visit there again.
Looks awfully deilicious, teehee.
Kim chi soup with pork was absolutely satisfying as well.
Give it a try if you are a korean food fan! :)

Being a typical girl,
no matter how full i am, the stomach always have a 10% space for dessert aftermath,

but just when i thought there weren't many choices of dessert there….

The waiter came over with two slices of pretty cakes lighted with candles,
with the courtesy of poots and leney!

Lovely cakes (definitely as good as they look) from fruits paradise.

You gotta try them! Fruits paradise has one of the nicest looking, and tasty cakes around,
and all flavours are exceptionally unique and delicious.
The only thing that I kinda dislike is the excessive amount of cream,
if not it would have been my top 2% of my favourite cakes all time.

Well but its is in the top 5% of my "best cakes eaten",
and when i order the next time round for any occasion,
I will definitely add in a special request to lessen the cream!

Delightful. :p


Pictures before we call it an end,
and love the bali free-style dress (in my own words) in cream that I wore,
specially from .
Extremely comfy and I love this kinda chillax outfit.

A tired but happy us. :)

Love the time spent with the two dear girls,
with endless tallks that are never pretentious yet comfortable,
with laughters and joy hanging out till the shop chases us out (always)…

And yes, I love this one piece workdress from Findingdressabelle too! :)

Love the unique skirt design and the scrunch part at the sleeves to make it slightly angular and puffy.
There are other colours that are looking really beautiful too.

Will be back for more!
