The Elephants Parade @ Tangs Orchard!

Merry Christmas dear readers!

I hope the Christmas season is treating you well! 🙂

A bonus for working at Orchard, in addition to the good food around town is the fine sights on the streets. This year, Tangs have invited several brightly and creatively coloured elephants! Do go down to town to admire these cute elephants before they are gone! 🙂

Angry bird is everywhere! Even an angry-phant! 🙂

These two jeweled elephants front the Tangs entrance. Very cute. 🙂

Bejeweled and champagne coloured elephants. They can be bought at a special pop up store in front and as well as on the fourth floor!

I thought this elephant looked queer with the black feathers… But still very glam I must say.

I love christmas decorations! Everything looks so happy and beautiful!

Gold butterflies adorn the decos in Tangs. Haha.

You can get a plain elephant and colour it in DIY style!

That’s all for now! I have a lottt of food photos from all the good food I have been having! 🙂

Will post them soon! Meanwhile I’ll be off having more good food during the christmas season and I hope you will be too! 🙂

Here’s a song we sang at my cell group party last night! Christmas isn’t Christmas till it happens in your heart! 🙂

Christmas Isn’t Christmas
’till it happens in your heart,
Somewhere deep inside you
Is where Christmas really starts;

So give your heart to Jesus,
you’ll discover when you do
That it’s Christmas
Really Christmas for you.

Jesus brings warmth like a winter fire,
A light like a candle’s glow;
He’s waiting now to come inside
As He did so long ago.

Jesus brings gifts of truth and life
And makes them bloom and grow.
So welcome Him with a song of joy
And when He comes you’ll know ….. that …

Christmas Isn’t Christmas
’till it happens in your heart,
Somewhere deep inside you
Is where Christmas really starts;

So give your heart to Jesus,
you’ll discover when you do
That it’s Christmas
Really Christmas for you.

lyrics & song: jimmy & carol owens

Merry Christmas! It is all about Jesus! 🙂

Catching a Flu

A sneeze in the office

A wave of air

Carries the virus

Through the corridor

Above and across my colleagues

Straight to my desk

Or was it

A sneeze in the office

Early in the morning

A harmless conversation with the flu victim

When I caught the flu?

Then

Swelling of the eyes

Pain of the throat

Drowsy head

Sleepy thoughts…

All day all night

Now at the doc’s

Who can’t catch the flu and

Take it away

But to administer meds

That will fight those virus in me

Meanwhile…

Aching sleepy me

Cant wait to recover and be well again

Floppy hats are a popular and lovely fall winter trend which I have noted from various brands such as Rosebullet, F21 and New Look. Although a little boring to chose black for a party dress, the D&G laced dress is hard to resist. I love the burgundy reds on the Mulberry oversize postmans locked clutch and Michael Kor boots. And the Antik Batik fur coat is a great style item to snuggle up to in, especially if going to a snowy place abroad. I have chosen a darker, muted and rich black, burgundy and dark chocolate brown colour palette which is in part inspired from the ICB styling event I attended.

Christmas is a time to dress up, party and eat in style! I hope you have party plans in store!

Sponsored Review | CLEAR Shampoo Review featuring Martin Hong

UPDATED with review and pictures of hottie Martin Hong! 🙂

Hi my dear reader! I have been busy and I hope all of you my lovely readers are doing well this week! 🙂

CLEAR shampoo is famous and touted for its Anti-dandruff shampoo formula (hence the name Clear) therefore I am very happy to bring to you Martin and my reviews of CLEAR Shampoo – New breakthrough in scalp care Nutrim 10 range!

I will present my review in this post and Martin’s review will follow up in the next post! 🙂

First up!

1. Clear Women Ice Cool Menthol 

Clear Women Ice Cool Menthol shampoo is a refreshing and revitalizing shampoo. If you like to start and end off your day with a refreshing hair wash, this is what you are looking for! It is suitable for all scalp and hair types and it has an invigorating burst of menthol freshness. Personally I am not a fan of menthol as I find it is too masculine a scent for me. 😛 But if you are a girl that loves her mint, I’d say go for it! 🙂

Next up…

2. Clear Women Anti Hair-Fall

Clear Women Anti Hair-Fall shampoo is my preferred choice between the two! 🙂 Created with Hair Lock Technology, it is suitable for weakened scalp and hair. The shampoo strengthens from the root to tip and increases hair’s defense against hairfall* and breakage. What I love about this shampoo is that it actually smells and feels nourishing! During and after the wash, my hair feels cleansed, smoother and nourished. The scent is lovely and fantastic, I highly suggest test-smelling the product the next time you visit the supermarket. As girls, it is important for us to prevent hair fall so this is a fantastic product! 🙂

Both shampoos retail at leading pharmacies and supermarkets at an affordable price of $9.40 for 350ml and $14.30 for 700ml.

Now we continue on to the Men’s range!

My dear friend Martin is a CLEAR shampoo user, so he gladly accepted my request to review their products on my blog! 🙂

Check out Martin in his usual coolness (I grabbed this pic off his facebook, hahaha).

Before you scroll down… You might want to check that your parents are not peeking over your back because otherwise they will start asking “Why are you looking at pictures of a top naked pretty boy washing his hair?” 😛

Martin’s Guide to a head of CLEAR cool hair!

This is the secret to my cool hair!

First you squeeze a generous amount on your hands…

Then you lather your hair… Now is the time you can style your hair to look like Beckham!

Massage the shampoo on your hair…

Wash it off and feel fresh~

Dry your hair well…

And this is how you will have great looking hair!

Martin’s review: What I like about CLEAR shampoo is that its effective (it’s an anti-dandruff formula) and that it leaves this cooling menthol feeling on your scalp. It’s like rubbing ice cream all over your hair, its pretty awesome. And after you wash it off, you can still feel the minty-tingly sensation and it just makes you feel really fresh.

CLEAR shampoo has 2 ranges, one is ‘Cool Menthol Sport’ and the other is ‘Anti-hair fall’. I’m not old enough to need the second one lah, but the first one really works for me. So for anyone who likes an effective-fuss-free-awesome-feeling shampoo, this is the perfect product.

To end off…

Ser Li’s Sexy 21st Birthday Party~!

Back in November, my classmate invited a few girls and I to her 21st party and it was a blast! 🙂 It was really great catching up with the girls after 3 weeks of internship! Finally some bonding with girls our age and think alike. Haha. 🙂

Ser Li prepared some very awesome props and we definitely goof-ed around in it!

Here’s with Christabelle! 

Christa, Rach, Shella, Bev, Clara and Ser Li!

Twist~!

With Rach!

And the birthday girl!

The girls in red… Like all prepared for CNY 2012! Haha. 😉

Ser Li’s awesome pretty pink icing on the outside lemon flavoured cake! Very sweet and sinful. 🙂

And the sexy birthday girl with the card I made for her! I am glad it goes very well with her sexy red and black baroque theme. The heart shapes motifs were a winning guess! 🙂

Turning 21st is a milestone and it can get pretty mundane after attending several in the year.. But when it has a good theme and great company, it’s always a joy to attend!

My week has been a daunting and stressful one – somehow there were a lot of technical work difficulties at work for me and my colleagues. I am praying and hoping for a stress-free three more week to the end of my internship and the end of the year!

I am also busy preparing and planning for church cell group activities and Trans. Lab collaborative project with Gilda. I am praying hard that these will go smoothly!

It will be a crazy three weeks to the end of the year and I know the crazy will not end until February next week – Trans. Lab Exhibition! It’s all very exciting, adrenaline rushing and frightful at the same time.

Wish me luck and please pray for me! 🙂

Bonne Week-end!

ICB Styling Event with Jerome Awasthi @ Wisma Isetan

Two Saturdays ago, I invited my friend Xue Li to attend ICB Styling event. I was invited by Heat Branding which I took up the offer just to see what it’ll be like. I’m certainly glad I attended as it was an enjoyable experience. More than a fashion show, it was a more personal experience hosted by acclaimed stylist Jerome Awasthi as he spoke about how he styled the girls and why and explained in greater detail about the products, about the materials and design. It definitely made fashion come alive and interesting even for Xue Li, a more science-inclined student who felt she learnt a lot more about fashion. 🙂

The store at Wisma Isetan, level 2.

The hanger full of clothes before the event started.

The lookbook in-store.

There was a free-flow of tasty punch and finger food like tarts and chocs! I should have taken photos of them. Lol.

Jerome starts with the first model and shares how the first look can be casual but with a slight change, she can look different. So he sends her away to transform…

Out comes the second model and he dons on her a fur stole which is a beautiful winter item although totally not suitable for Singapore. I still love it. Haha.Model one is back in the same top but now in a girl pleated skirt and leather jacket which makes her appear formal yet feminine at the same time!

Model 2 appears again, in a trench coat which Jerome demonstrates different ways of tie-ing the belt.

Then she undresses the trench to reveal what she’s wearing within!

A casual knitted dress. Which was shapeless till Jerome skinny belted it! 🙂

I like this oxford wedges!

Next up a series of transformation with the same versatile scarf. Wrapped around!

Or like a hanging top.

Or like a vest!

My favourite look is the one on the left! With matching burgundy/maroon red stockings, bag and top! It’s beautiful for this Christmas! And very Blair from gossip girl. 🙂

Hope you enjoyed this post as I did for the styling event! 🙂

Stay beautiful, inside and out!

I actually have a few more photos to upload from the event but alas, wordpress uploading is quite a hassle and I’m already tired… I will blog soon! 🙂 Please leave comments for me! 🙂 <3
