LUSH For Every Season

Pardon me as I’m a late for this post, which should have been up last Christmas. >U< Here, I’d like to share with you LUSH’s First Snow dusting powder, Lord of Misrule Mint Shampoo, Santa’s Red Lips Lip Scrub treatment and an minty bar soap. As LUSH is all about fresh handmade cosmetics, you’ll always find fresh items for every season. Now that we’re in the month of February, from this Valentine’s seasonal items, you can find a heart shaped rose bar at $10 a pop in stores! If you have a lover who prefers a practical, usable gift over a bouquet of roses, u can consider getting her half a dozen of soap bars. OR you could gift her both roses and rose bars! And well, if you’re single like I am, you can always gift one for yourself, or share the love with your single friends! 😉 LUSH XMAS ITEMS_0000LUSH XMAS ITEMS_0001

Your girlfriend will love Anna Sui’s Romantic & Holiday Snow Christmas Collection

Hi Loves!

A while back I shared about Anna Sui’s Autumn collection and share a preview of their new Romantica fragrance. Today I’m back to share with you more about the Romantica fragrance and their Christmas, limited edition Holiday Snow collection!!!

Anna Sui Romantica ReviewIf fairytales were flowers, they will smell like Anna Sui Romantica fragrance – charming, fresh & fabulous~ I love everything about the fragrance, the sweet mesmerizing floral fruit scent, to it’s feminine & girly intricately designed packaging with gold floral details.

Classified as a Sparkling Floral, it is at once joyous and sensuous, lively and exciting. The top note opens with a floaty feeling of Calabria Bergamot, Mandarin Essence, Sparkling Pomegranate, and Watery Quince. It is giddy, it is glorious, it is like falling in love all over again.

Soon to be followed by Rose de Mai, Osmanthus Absolute, Jasmine Petals, and Orange Blossom, the romance builds to a crescendo, awakening a deeper sensuality. Water Lily and Peony Blossom add a touch of whimsy and freshness to the heart.

And then it settles with White Ceylon Cedarwood, Sheer Amber, Indonesian Sandalwood, and Creamy Musk.

Anna Sui Romantica 30ml: $68
Anna Sui Romantica 50ml: $93
Anna Sui Romantica 75ml: $119

Anna Sui Holiday Snow Thaw Heart ReviewAnna Sui’s Holiday Snow Collection offers 2 options, Frozen Love & Thawed Heart ($88 per collection), pictured.
Each collection comes with:
• Rose Cheek Color N 6g
• Lip Stick M 3g
• Color Powder 2.3g
• Box(Size: W150mm × H58mm × D103mm/Material: Wood, artificial leather)

Anna Sui’s Holiday Snow Collection comes in a very precious and attractive packaging which definitely makes for a great Christmas gift for your girlfriend. Priced at $88, it’s also a value set with 3 beauty products and a solid wooden casing which is super pretty!

Spread the love this festive season with Singtel

Hi Loves!

What does Christmas mean to you?

To me, Christmas is a time for us to remember Christ’s birth and also a welcomed time to reunite with family and friends for delicious, hearty meals & fun times.

Christmas means different things to different people.

Growing up as fortunate young children, Christmas means getting gifts from our parents and relatives. As we grow older, it also means reunions and gifts exchange. For those of you who’ve entered into parenthood – it may mean playing the role of Santa and gifting to your child/children.

However not all of us are so fortunate to be able to give more to our family for the festive season. And for those of us who can, why not share the love and blessings?

With SingTel’s thoughtful and heart-warming Little Helpers initiative, this Christmas you can visit http://singtel.com/Christmas to choose from 3 tabs to explore daily “deals”, participate in “on the street” activities and “lend a hand” with the Willing Hearts and Lion Befrienders to bring some cheer to the less fortunate in our community.

I highly recommend you to visit the site, share the deals with your family & take part in the community activities with your friends!

Enjoy this festive video clip by SingTel, I especially love the little boy that answered “Binoculars” when asked what Christmas means to him and then his sister giving him this “what are you saying?!” look and squeeze. Too cute!

Thank you SingTel for letting me join your team to spread the word about this meaningful Christmas initiative! 🙂



Blessed Christmas 2013!


Blessed Christmas my dearest readers!

What is Christmas to you?

I saw this tweet pic from Roy Bennett, @inspiringthinkn:


“Christmas is love in action.”

In essence, that is true because we celebrate the birth of Christ, that God sent his only son Jesus to come to earth and to prepare him to die for our sins on the cross. How often we neglect and forget the real meaning of Christmas when we are busy in the celebration and revelry of the season.

For me, Christmas this year is a time when I gather with old friends and family to celebrate the season and enjoy the warmth in the company!

Blessed Christmas, be the Love in action today! 🙂

Noteworthy Christmas Advertorials & Apps 2012


I do hope you are having fun this Christmas!

Over this month, I’ve had some fun reading, watching, playing and engaging with some commercial Christmas advertorials and apps with I thought I’d share with you! This is not a sponsored post, and I’m reviewing/sharing these as a consumer/user because I found them to be interesting! 🙂

1. Cartier Winter Tale Advertisement Video & Gifs

I was first captivated by their super high quality gifs but unfortunately don’t seem to show on my blog. ):



But I also thought their video very brilliant, who knew showcasing products as life-sized items in a snowy landscape as leopard cubs traverse could be so… heart warming?

2. Kit Kat CrazyPrezzies FB App

It’s really irreverent, hilarious and as the title suggest, crazy. It’s an app with an image of a ball/gum dispenser atop a dead Santa with super hilarious result when you dispense, to send to your FB friends:


This was for my aunt. Hehe.


This was for my sister. You start to see their lame jokes? 😛
Find/tag a friend to go along with you on the fairy tale journey and end with an album! It’s cute but I was expecting cartoon images and not text heavy images, pity!

Merry Christmas!


Ena Merry Christmas

Hello dear readers!

I would like to wish all my readers a very wonderful and blessed Christmas!

May you spend it with your loved ones.

It’s also a season where I am reminded of God’s love for mankind by sending His son, Jesus down to earth to save us. <3

Thank you God.

Now let’s get off the computer and really spend some quality time with our family and friends!

This is really a long overdue post, for H’muse the Pop Up store at Parco. The nice folks there have generously sponsored 3 vouchers for my readers. So watch out for the next post on how to take part! The vouchers giveaway will take place through the Christmas season and the winners will be revealed on Christmas day, so it’s like 1 more Christmas present for you, the potential winner! (:

Without any further ado, let me show you the photos I took when I went down to visit the store!

Hmuse Pop Up Store EnabalistaH’muse is located at Parco level 1. It occupies a small yet cosy corner. The colourful and quirky merchandise also stands out against the intentionally bare furnishing.

Hmuse Brands EnabalistaThe list of brands featured in store, with a majority of Indonesian brands.

Hmuse Shoes EnabalistaBeautiful handmade leather shoes from Indonesia. Chin, the PR and marketing guy at H’muse says that more stocks are coming in (which should be in store by the time you are reading this).

Hmuse Shoes 2 EnabalistaThese shoes are good-looking and double up for work and play. Guys, if you’re looking for a nice pair of shoes for Christmas and into the new year, go on down to H’muse!

HMuse Ask Dress Enabalista

I picked out a few items, the ones I like to feature in this post…. and I’m telling you, I’m in love with this Indonesian brand, Ask. It’s so spot on with the trends and it doesn’t harm that it has a Korean vibe and sense of aesthetics that I see in the Korean dramas I am watching currently… Just saying. >.<  So this lovely Autumn/Winter scenery printed dress is apt for the current season and selling at SGD $96.

Hmuse Ask & Coat EnabalistaThis lovely grey faux fur coat also from Ask is selling at $119. Have I told you I secretly (ok fine, not so secretly) LOVE fur? And it’s only arguably in this time of the year in Winter where it’s arguably colder that I can wear fur, fur-lined and winter related thingamajings out in Singapore. Like my fur lined boots from Korea, furry dress, knitted beanie and scarves. But even then, when I wear them out I feel like I’m crazy. T-T I wish I could travel to somewhere cold this winter! Even if it’s 3-4 days it’d still make me very happy, and so I can wear layered attired and furry stuff, HEHE. (:

Hmuse Ask Dress 2 EnabalistaThis printed and Batik inspired dress is selling at $98. It also comes in other colours like green hues. I featured this cause it’s in pink/purple hues. Hee.

Hmuse Jan Sober Short Sleeve Shirt EnabalistaAnother Menswear brand, Soep Shop, this cute top is selling at $54.90. I particularly like how the collar and shoulders fabric (I forgot what this part of the shirt is called, lol) is different from the rest of the shirt.

Hmuse Men Shirt EnabalistaThis black t-shirt by Kazign has a different coloured pocket and is selling at $49.

Hmuse Bags EnabalistaNow moving on to the vibrant center counter of bags and accessories.

My 2011 Christmas ;)

Hello ! Hope your January is starting out well… whether you are at school or at work!

I meant to post up photos from my Christmas celebration with my cell group but… I realize the pictures are not with me and it’s kind of late for it anyways. So.. just one cute shot of the really pretty and tasty cookies baked by Claire’s mum! 😉

I had Christmas eve dinner with my sister, Claire and Xue li at Aston’s. 😉

On the 30th Dec, (after my last day of internship!) I headed down to Singapore Recreational Club @ Padang to meet Jean – friend of Khai and Sofie. It was Sofie’s birthday party and Khai sweetly prepared a surprise party for her at the hotel. It was very smart of Khai to request Jean to decorate the room before hand. Haha. 🙂

With the beautiful Sofie !

Sofie and her fiance, Khai. They are getting married coming November!

Stunning couple… 😉

With Stacey and Sofie.With the girls – Jean, Stacey, Sofie and Cassey!The beautiful city skyscraper scene from SRC president’s hotel room.

It feels good to be back in school… But we were thrown a curve ball – a multi-specialism group project to be completed in 5 days! Having to juggle school, real estate night lessons,  Transmission lab art exhibition video project and church commitments requires a lot of discipline and energy and somedays the stress gets to me.

But on the up side, God answered my prayer by giving me a very lovely group of project-mates and even though due to some unexpected circumstances some work was delayed, we are still carrying through this project with a positive spirit !!! 😀

Praying and wishing everyone all the best for the project!!! Wish me all the best and break a leg! Hahahaha. x)


Looking back at 2011 Part 1

Hi dear readers! HAPPY NEW YEAR 2012!

I hope you enjoyed your New Year’s weekend as much as I did! I went for my friend, Sofie’s birthday on 30th Dec which was a mega blast and I had a quiet New Year’s countdown with my family and celebrated the New Year with friends at Sunday morning church service! 🙂 Spending time at our Lord’s house is a great way to start the New Year! 🙂

This is gonna be a long post! Before I go on to the New Year blog posts, I’d like to wrap up my 2011 first. Heh. I really haven’t had the time to update all my pictures from December so that’s what I’ll do here! 😉

Starting off with my friend H’s 21st!

Gosh, has it really been a full year of 21st birthdays? I think I might have possibly attended almost one every month! Partly glad our 21st year is over but also hoping we’ll all continue to meet up! 🙂

That’s lovely Jing Wei and Valerie with the fantastic buffet spread. The party was held at Aranda chalets, which in my opinion is one of the best chalet offerings in Singapore for their sleek and stylish chalets with a quiet and lush environment.

Instead of having a traditional birthday cake, H celebrated with tiny cupcakes which were not only beyond adorable but also very delicious!

I thoroughly enjoyed the red velvet cupcake and the caramel cupcake!
And in the “Most Hilarious Post-Dinner Birthday Activity for the year 2011” award, H’s takes the cake. As seen from above, she was first “blind-folded” in a red plastic bag and made to whack the pink heel pinata with an umbrella. What went down instead, was a very crooked umbrella because the pinata was one hard nut to crack!
Next up… FCCS Team Christmas Lunch @ Au Petit Salut at Dempsey Road! 🙂
The Christmas lunch was a much welcomed break and reward as we had worked very hard for the months of November and December, for various events and publications.
The lunch was a gathering of the permanent staff, interns, free-lance staff and our president. As you can see most of the team are French with only 3 other ladies who are local Singaporeans (and naturally with whom I bonded with). So my internship was also quite a cultural exposure for me, particularly in terms of language and food.
Group photos! Generally when I reveal to my peers where I intern at, they would respond with slight gasps and exclamations of how cool it is. Upon hindsight, it is indeed all glory to God that He secured a wonderful internship opportunity for me which i will look back with fondness. Despite the tedious work I did, I really enjoyed the friendships I have made with my colleagues. 🙂
Last but not the least, here’s what went down my tummy during that meal. Fantastic french loaves and soft butter (which reminded me of the meals I had when I was in Italy in 2007), escargot in garlic sauce for starters, beef steak and fries for mains and ending off with raspberry sorbet and gateau (cake) ! 🙂
With the other fellow intern, Nirina. He’s French but from Madagascar!
Soo… look out for Part 2 in the next post, I will post photos from Benjamin (my cell group) Christmas party and Sofie’s birthday party~!

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! 🙂


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

When Love Came Down

This was meant to be blogged last night/early morning but something cropped up with WordPress so I decided to type on Word and am only posting it now. 🙂

Here are some over-due photos from YPM Camp, YA Gathering & Outreach Prep !

With Evan, Felily & Joyce!

With Brian Tan my 13 year old camp angel.

With YA1!

A group of church boys sewing Christmas outreach gifts is really quite a sight!

God has been faithful and Christmas outreach went well, we believe many have been blessed by it. Heard a few wonderful testimonies of how newcomers have been touched and even how a friend felt so touched she wanted too accept Christ again. Aww! 🙂 There are many areas we can improve upon, publicity and follow-up so hopefully come next year, Christmas outreach will be better and bless even more people!

I thank God for everyone who came and helped out for Daniel & Benjamin Christmas gathering. Especially to Siew Ho, Amy, Yee Ning, Russ and Jon. It was a good time of hanging around and sharing thanksgiving for the year. 🙂

I had a wonderful Christmas evening with Dione, watching 500 Days of Summer, chilling (literally in the cold) all the way back home. Hahaha. And the next day, spent a whole day with her, church, after church shopping first at the new Bedok Point then Orchard. It was so good and fruitful to share and also listen to her share. It was also a fruitful shopping day for me. Hehe. 🙂

The most important lesson I’ve learnt this year is that I cannot take my eyes away from Christ, especially when troubles come and don’t go, when my patience and love is gone. That’s when I need to focus on Him even more. The spiritual discipline I’ve once cultivated (actually not too long ago) is now gone and I need to get it back. My new year resolution is to hunger and thirst for God’s word and be disciplined in my spiritual life.

This passage of the bible spoke to me today:

1 Peter 1:3-9 (New International Version, ©2010)

Praise to God for a Living Hope

3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you, 5 who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time. 6 In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. 7 These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. 8 Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, 9 for you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls.

Looking back, I feel a tinge of horrible-ness for my actions/in-actions. But there is little regret and I thank God for showing me that I am going through a period of refinement. Even now, I find myself very critical and almost always catching myself to not think critically and judgmentally of others. I need strength and love from God to find that balance of love and truth! So very hard indeed!

11 No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it. – Hebrews 12:11

I am still at lost with many things and I shall desire to seek God for wisdom to know what to do, for help that He will send me down on earth.

To end off, Thank God for keeping my family safe and healthy and for loving and caring friends!!! 😀
