Delicious Seafood at Kelly Jie Seafood (Formerly Toa Payoh Mellben)

Hi guys!

How’s Chinese New Year going for you so far? It’s Chu Er (Day 2) evening and I’ve been feasting since Chu Xi Ye (Chinese New Year Eve)!

Speaking of feasting, I want to take some time to blog about my recent visit at Kelly Jie Seafood (Formerly Toa Payoh Mellben). My impression of Mellben Seafood started with Mellben @ Prince Edward about 3 years ago, I fell in love with their Creamy Butter Crab (Sooo good) and have always thought highly of Mellben after that experience. So when I was invited to try out Kelly Jie Seafood’s new dishes, I was very excited to see what’s in store. Boy, I must say I was not disappointed!
Kelly Jie Seafood (Formerly Toa Payoh Mellben Seafood)

We were welcomed with Lime Juice and Barley, I had the Lime Juice which was sweet and refreshing and not just a sugary cordial that you might expect.

For starters, we had Wasabi Prawn which was served warm, so it was slightly crispy and the taste of wasabi was just nice, it was not overpowering or too much that might induce a cough. Also, isn’t the presentation just so pretty? I was not expecting a fine dining presentation at all.Next up, we had Truffle Pork Loin and boy, this is good! First of all the pork pieces are so tender and succulent. The truffle taste was not overpowering either and it’s definitely a dish you’d want to order and impress your guests if you’re hosting them for dinner. 🙂

This is a new dish created by the Kelly Jie chef for Christmas that was so popular, they continued to serve it post Christmas. It’s fried Red Garoupa served with Yuzu sauce, strawberries and garnish. I like the texture of the dish and how the sweetness of the yuzu balances well with the savoury fish. Definitely something different from the usual steamed fish, would recommend if your family / friends / guests are more adventurous with their food. Next up we have another new dish that chef and Kelly Jie are very excited about sharing, Lobster Noodles. (It’s not even on their website’s menu yet, lol)
The lobster meat is tender and fresh. The soup is light (instead of being too rich and creamy that you might become sick of eating halfway through) so if you want to order an entire portion for two or even one, you’ll have no problem finishing it. If you’re a fan of lobsters and soups, I would recommend this.  We also had the privilege to try some of their Chinese New Year goodies, this is the salted egg bitter gourd, which is very interesting!

I was pleasantly surprised by how pretty the dishes looked when they were served, of which Kelly Jie told us that is because Chef is a judge for many competitions (with him being a winner for many as well) which explains why the food doesn’t just taste good but looks good as well. Another big plus point is the location at Toa Payoh, which is centrally located in Singapore, ideal if you are hosting a gathering with guests coming from all over Singapore. I would recommend Kelly Jie for their fresh seafood and innovative, delicious dishes. Also, you must order the Creamy Butter Crab if you haven’t already tried it!

Special thanks to Kelly Jie, Chef, Lucas of Imagine PR for having my friend Keryn and I, and filling our tummies with delicious seafood on a rainy evening!

Achieve Hydrated Glowing Skin with Sothys Hydra3Ha™ Facial Treatment

Hi Loves!

Do you face dry, sensitive or acne skin? When I was younger, I had mild acne skin and in addition to proper skincare routine, facials really helped me to balance the oils in my skin and regain healthy skin.

If you’re looking for a facial salon, you’ll be happy to know that recently I had the privilege to visit the new Sothys Premium Salon Boat Quay and experience Sothys Hydra3Ha™, an intensively hydrating facial treatment which I really enjoyed!

Before I go into the details of the facial, let me share a bit about the Sothys brand. Sothys hails from Paris with over 70 years of history and innovation and they are currently a salon / boutique carried brand in Singapore. I have known about this brand for about 3-4 years and I personally love their Youth Serum – Detox.

Get Your Home Ready For Chinese New Year

Hi guys!

How has your 2018 been so far? If January flew by for you (as it did for me), no worries, it’s but a trial period! 😛 Chinese New Year is now round the corner (16 Feb 2018, in case you’re wondering) and it’s another opportunity to start anew!

With Chinese New Year fast arriving, places to get your Chinese New Year decorations such as Chinatown are beginning to get really crowded! That’s why for this post, I’ve teamed up with the lovely folks at online store Masons Home Decor to share how you can get your home ready for Chinese New Year with these popular decorations, so your guests and you can crush the Instagram game this festive season! 😉 

1. Wall Decoration – Stickers, Scrolls, Banners

 A must have item to usher in the Lunar New Year is a pair of red vertical banners with auspicious phrases written on them. These auspicious phrases would be in Mandarin and would indicate well wishes of joy, good health, and prosperity. The upside down ‘fu’ Mandarin character on a red background in the form of a wall sticker or hanging décor is also extremely popular. This, bundled with the vertical banners/scrolls at your door would be perfect in setting the mood right, and welcoming your guests in style.

2. Lanterns

Lanterns provide an oriental touch to any space. Most homes in Singapore are very modern and many may feel that lanterns would not suit the theme of their home décor. There are in the market however, lanterns that look extremely modern. These lanterns are not your usual traditional looking lanterns made of paper or plastic, but they are made of premium fabric. Check out Mason’s premium fabric Chinese New Year lanterns that are perfect in blending in with a modern home décor theme, and at the same time introduce an oriental festive atmosphere.

3. Red Cushions / Bean Bags

As we already know, house visiting is a huge tradition for most Chinese in Singapore. Apart from welcoming guests in style, ensuring that their comfort is not jeopardised would be a big point to note for the host! A change of linens to the red colour or the introduction of red cushions would inevitably bring about the CNY atmosphere. The colour red in the Chinese culture represents fortune and joy. If you would like to go the extra mile in providing comfort, perhaps you could even throw in a red bean bag to allow your space to accommodate to more individuals. After all, bean bags are a comfy home decor tool that can be easily moved around the home!

4. Artificial Flowers

Cherry Blossoms and Peonies are must haves when it comes to floral arrangements for the New Year. Cherry Blossoms signify longevity while Peonies are a representation of good fortune. These are two attributes that many individuals would want! These flowers are also suitable for decorating the home after the festive season ends.

5. Pineapple

In the context of Chinese New Year, Pineapples have a deeper meaning than the pineapple tart party. Yes, it is definitely a must have CNY goody, but it is also too a must have CNY décor! Pineapples are known to be lucky items. In some dialects, the term pineapple can be directly translated to ‘prosperity is here’. This is why, you can see hanging pineapple decorations in many shops or offices you visit. Having pineapple decorations all over your home would represent a home that is bound to be blessed with good prosperity and wealth.

If you’d like to beat the crowd outside, you can get your home Chinese New Year ready by shopping from Mason’s array of Chinese New Year decorationsIf you would prefer to get the whole family together to partake in some DIY CNY decoration making, check out this article here Regardless of how you are going to attain your decorations, I hope you have a great time with your family and loved ones this festive season while ushering in the celebrations!



SG Bus Leh? – The App To Use When The Train Breaks Down

If you’re a Singaporean or a local Singapore resident, you know the jokes about MRT breaking down is no longer funny. The reality we live in today is that the trains breakdown are more of the norm, than not. 🙁

I am not a hater or online keyboard warrior that goes about trashing the government body (Land Transport Authority) or the MRT company (SMRT) for all the train breakdowns. If you know me, I am much more of a realist and pragmatist – I don’t whine about the problems. When I see a problem, I rather much focus on what steps to take next, to find a solution or go around the problem, you know?

When the train breaks down, Grab or Uber ride prices escalates pretty high, pretty fast due to the unexpected demand, so I would opt for taking bus rides especially if you’re not in a hurry!

So, without further ado, I want to introduce to you SG Bus Leh?, a super cute app that will help us to board and alight a bus on time!

As I’m an Apple IPhone user, I will share my personal experience using this app before sharing more features available on the Andriod version! (I hate it when there are differences on the two iOS, but I have to accept that because there are a lot of restrictions places on Apple’s system.)

  1. Search Bus Stop

Starting from the furthest right tab, <Search>. Simply type in Keywords and they will give you a few options for you to zoom in to the right stop / interchange to see what buses are available and when the next few buses are arriving.

2. Find Bus Stops Nearby

Another handy feature to locate bus stops is under this <Nearby> tab. I also really like how they even include details like “Bendy” for long  buses and “Double” for double deckers. Cool, huh?

3. Add your Favourites stops! 

<Favourites> is probably my favourite (no puns intended!) tab! This is so handy because instead of constantly searching for the same few bus stops you commute to and fro from, you can save your favourites there!

How to add your Favourite stops:

Step A: Search for your favourite stop

Go to <Search> and locate your favourite bus stop. For this example, I picked <Bedok Stn Exit A> and hit the star icon at the bottom of the list.

Step B. Name your Bus Stop

If you wish to, you may be your own government and rename this bus-stop. HAHA. I am boring today and for the sake of this blog post, I kept the same name.

Step C. Find it in under your Favourites!

Et Voila! Now I can have <Bedok Stn Exit A> easily accessible under my Favourites tab! 😀

What you can do, is to rename the bus stops as “Going Out” & “Coming Back” if your bus stops for going out and coming back are always the same.

4. Check out Lobangs while waiting for your bus.

Seems like pretty legit deals. My favourite is probably the “Spot  & win lifetime ad-free SG BusLeh!” hahaha.

Onwards for more Android features!

5. You can spot your Nearby stops on Google Map.

The Android is able to integrate Google Maps, which makes the app a lot more interactive and cool.

6. It shows you how many more stops the next bus is away!

Because of the Google Maps integration, you can see how many more stops your bus is away from, on the map.

7. The App tells you how many more stops before you alight!

Lol, do you ever get anxiety when you’re on a new or unfamiliar bus route and don’t know which stop to alight and afraid to miss it? Well, this feature solves this problem by helping you to track the route! I am certainly tempted to get an Android phone now, lol.

8. Check EZ-Link Card Balance

Another nifty feature on the Android version is the ability to track your card balance after you sync it with this app. Cool huh?

9. You can pay to remove the ads.

If you’re the kind that pays for Spotify so you don’t have to listen to ads, you might be happy to know that there’s a paid version so you don’t have to see the ads when you open the app!

Last but not the least, if you’re curious to know, SG BusLeh is developed by one of the top local mobile app development singapore consultancy, Originally US. These guys they specialize in designing and developing amazing mobile apps that look and feel great with clients include insurance giant AIA, River Safari, Mediacorp, CPF and Zalora.

You can download your very own SGBusLeh? app on Apple here and Android here.

Many thanks to AM Collective for the introduction and SG BusLeh for sponsoring today’s post.



Unforgettable Authentic Italian Dining Experience At Ricciotti

Are you a fan of pasta and wines? Then today’s post will definitely be of interest to you!

Recently I had the pleasure to revisit Ricciotti and the experience was even better than I had remembered. The first time I visited Ricciotti was for a family dinner years back. The same restaurant has undergone a revamp with a sleeker branding and image, which makes for a great dining spot to also chill and hang out. The restaurant sports an open bar concept and has an incredible collection of 73 (and counting) whisky labels for whisky lovers to pair the delectable Italian dishes with.

If you are craving for authentic handmade Italian pasta and pizzas, look no further. I highly recommend coming with a crowd of four or more so you can order more dishes and share! It is tough to pick a favourite dish, although ultimately it will depend on what your taste preferences are. In case you are wondering, I will highlight what my picks are, in my captions/notes accompanying the photos of dishes we tried below.

If you enjoy wines and have someone to impress, I also recommend calling in to reserve your seats and request for wine pairing – the manager will recommend the best of Italian wines (have I mentioned how much I love Italian wines?) to go with their fine dishes.

All in all, Ricciotti is a modern restaurant and bar that serves authentic Italian cuisine with excellent service and a place that I’ll definitely head back for more!

I don’t always have my fill with bread but I simply couldn’t resist these, which are so soft and delicious.Carpaccio di Manzo, Argentine Beef Carpaccio, 25 Years Aged Balsamic Dressing, Parmesan Cheese, Rocket Salad.

A chef’s recommendation, undoubtedly a popular dish for Italians but not quite my liking.

Polpo e Burrata, Grilled Octopus, Burratina D.O.P, Roasted Cherry Tomato Pesto, Crispy Celery. 

I really like this dish, everything from the fresh octopus, cheese, roasted cherry tomatos and how everything goes together. This dish pairs so well with the Italian white wine we had!

Tortelloni di Bufala. Homemade Buffalo Mozzarella D.O.P. Stuffed Pasta, Cherry Tomato Confit, Pearl Onions, Basil Sauce.

Tagliatelle alla Bolognese.  Homemade Tagliatelle, Beef Ragú Sauce, Parmesan Cheese.

I don’t know if you ever get Bolognese Pasta cravings, but I do and this dish just hits the spot! It’s everything you’d want in a beef bolognese pasta!

Ravioli del Plin. Homemade Beef Stuffed Pasta, Parmesan Cream, Porcini Mushrooms, Veal Jus.

This is my favourite of the three pastas we tried. I might sound like I’m exaggerating, but I’ve been to Italy and I’ve tried other Italian restaurants in Singapore but there’s nothing quite like this dish! I love the flavour of the dish and how the Ravioli goes so well with the mushrooms. Most definitely recommend this dish with some red wine.

Crudo e Rucola. Parma Ham, Rocket Salad, Parmesan Shaving, Tomato Sauce, Mozzarella Cheese.

This is such a satisfying pizza. the parma ham is definitely the highlight of the dish. The saltiness of the parma ham pairs so well with the fresh rockets (another one of my favourites!), cheese and  pizza base that I couldn’t resist getting more of it, slice after slice. I’m not usually a pizza lover, but you can give me this pizza anyday!

Branzino alla Mediterranea. Grilled Seabass, Mediterranean Vegetables Caponata, Gaeta Olives, Capsicum Sauce.

The sea bass is so fresh, guys. I am typically most picky when it comes to eating seafood because I only like it when it’s fresh and well flavoured and this dish did not disappoint. Agnello alla Ligure. Mint Brined Lamb Loin, Taggiasche Olives, Pearl Onions, Artichoke Purée

At this point of writing, I must admit that I feel like I’m running out of descriptions to express how delicious the dishes are, especially when we were served so many! And I can only say that in my honest opinion, this is lamb slices cooked to perfection. We were so surprised by this dish, it is not gamey at all, this is how all lamb meat should taste like, in my opinion, heh. I have weak gums that tire easily when I’m eating chunky meat slices or steak so I always appreciate when meat slices are well cooked so that it is neither too raw nor tough! 

Panna Cotta. Almond Milk Panna Cotta, Salted Dark Chocolate Crumbles.

One of my favourite memories of Italy is enjoying fresh, white Panna Cotta in Venice and I haven’t had the chance to eat anything quite like it – soft, white and delicious. And I must say, Ricciotti’s Panna Cotta comes close. What’s better is that this Panna Cotta is almond milk flavoured, so if you’re a fan of almond, you will love this.
Tiramisú. Classic Italia Recipe, Mascarpone Cream, Espresso, Savoiradi Biscuits.

The test of an Italian establishment, we’re told, is in its Tiramisu. This is a favourite dessert at Ricciotti, with its soft tiramisu cake that’s moist and well flavoured, it’s no wonder why.

Semifreddo al Gianduja. Hazelnut and Chocolate Frozen Parfait, Salted Caramel Sauce.

It feels right to end off the review with this dish, the mix of sweet hazelnut and chocolate frozen parfait that’s like ice cream and the salted caramel sauce, this dish is Italian with a modern twist.

I thoroughly enjoyed my dining experience at Riccotti with their delicious, authentic Italian dishes and also love the modern and trendy setting.  Thank you Lucas and Ricciotti for having me at the media tasting. Shout out for Wei Kai of SgCafeHopping for the beautiful photography you see in this post, to remember these delicious dishes by!

8 Things You Might Expect At Le Diner en Blanc

You might have read about my previous post Checklist for Le Diner en Blanc First Timers and I thought I’d do a follow up post about what actually happened at the one I attended in Singapore earlier this year!

1 / You have to meet up with your chosen bus group.

As the location for Le Diner en Blanc is always kept a secret, participants of the event will have to gather at their chosen location (many across islandwide) to wait for a bus that will take us to the venue.2 /  You will have to carry all your stuff with you. (Bring a handy trolley if you have one!)

It was tough finding a white bag that will fit all the things that we had to carry, so we had to split all the things up and carry between the two of us!

3 / You might experience a really long bus ride.

We took the bus from the east near Tanah Merah, the bus took us to Changi before heading down to Sentosa. >.< I’m not sure why that was the reason though, so I hope you like bus rides!

We finally alighted at RWS and took a walk to the location at RWS.
4 / You might rush to get a spot in the line and then get busy to set up your table.

Every bus is assigned one line, and most people would want to be at the end of either sides so there might be a bit of jostling around, but thankfully everyone was quite courteous. We did a bit of research online and especially Pinterest to gain inspiration for table setting and I had the sense to add in a candle lamp and fairy lights – I brought enough to share with the tables on our left and right, haha!

5 / Prepare to exchange stories and maybe even food!

The french on my right happened to have worked at an office near where I live so we had quite a good conversation and they offered us really yummy cheese (as pictured) and salami on bread! I especially love this part about the dinner, meeting new friends!  6 / Photoworthy moments

Being at DEB means everyone’s dressed in white and it’s definitely an evening you want to remember, so be sure to take a few shots, especially with who you’re with and meet!

7 / Enjoy the fringe events

In addition to all that’s already happening – setting up dinner, dining, meeting new friends – organizers had a lot of fringe events like models on stilts, musicians to entertain us through the dinner. We made the trip to the photobooth to get a few cute shots! 🙂

8 / Dance the night away!

The event ends with a blast with everyone dancing the night away, we also got to see fireworks since we were at Sentosa and the evening was truly quite spectacular and enjoyable.

The Two Most Important Days In Your Life

Recently I came across this quote:

“The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.”

While I don’t profess to fully know why I am born on this earth, nor do I have THE calling or mission to accomplish in this life time – I do know that my interests and career lies heavily in the areas of  Real Estate & Digital Media and I want to continue to grow my interest and skill sets in these two areas.

I’ve reviewed my 2017 goals and vision board (they’re in powerpoint slides format, in case you were wondering) and I’ve decided that my theme for 2018 will be “Value-Add”. Whether it is value adding for my clients at work, readers on my blog or social media following. brands that I work with, my family, my church community or my friends  – I will strive to Value-Add in any and all ways through my actions, time and with the life that God has given me.

Speaking of value-adding, one thing I’ll be doing more often is recommending cafe spots and fashion finds in 2018! 😉 If you’re looking for a cozy coffee spot in Novena, I highly recommend Joe & Dough at Square 2 (10 Sinaran Dr, 01-156, Singapore 307506)! Also, shout out for Mizzue Singapore for sponsoring the cute beige bag featured below! I like that the bag is well made and comes at an affordable price point. Mizzue also carries many bag styles, there’s sure to be something you’ll love that you can carry from work to date nights. The design I’m carrying below is sold out, however you can find similar styles here, here and here.



3 Benefits of Tumeric For Your Skin + Himalaya Skincare Hampers Giveaway!

Hi Loves!

Today I’d like to share with you 3 benefits that Tumeric can bring for your skin!

1 / Gives you a natural glow

Traditionally women have been using Tumeric as an effective skin brightener to maintain clear and beautiful skin. This can be attributed to the curcumin found in Tumeric, a powerful anti-oxidant that can prevent cellular damage by destroying infected cells from free radicals.

2 / Helps to heal wounds faster

The same curcumin found in turmeric can help wounds heal by decreasing inflammation and oxidation. Studies have found that turmeric can positively affect tissue and collagen as well. The journal Life Sciences recommends applying curcumin as an optimized formula to best work on skin wounds.

3 / Reduce acne and scarring

The anti-inflammatory qualities of Tumeric can target your pores and calm the skin. Turmeric is also known to reduce scarring. This combination of uses may help your face clear up from acne breakouts.

With that, if you want to start incorporating Tumeric in your skincare, I’ve got 2 Himalaya’s Tumeric Infused product hampers for giveaway! Check out my unboxing, quick review and giveaway details below. 🙂

3 bags of hampers, 1 for review & 2 for giveaway.
The box for review came with a cute folder including the press release document.
Opening the box reveals a Tumeric flower, with the Tumeric infused products packaged below the soil, as Tumeric is extracted from the stem (yes, I googled, if its stem or root!).Uncovering the black cover reveals 4 Himalaya Tumeric infused products.Himalaya Purifying Neem Face Wash, Purifying Neem Scrub, Neem Face Pack, Purifying Neem & Tumeric Soap.That’s not it! Removing the products reveals another layer below.A DIY Kit with Tumeric.Comes with Tumeric Powder and Honey and instructions on how to make the DIY mask.Uncovering the paper cases to reveal the product packaging below.

All the products also include the Neem ingredient, which comes from the Neem tree and has amazing anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties which is great for the skin. Check it out here.

My thoughts & reviews:
I struggled with facial acne issues growing up, and I was a Himalaya Purifying Neem Face Wash user. I like that the product felt very organic and close to nature, it felt like a very natural solution to my acne issues. For this review, I tried every product in the hamper and I can attest that the product is just as I remembered it. The Purifying Neem Face Wash is a gel-like consistency product, that gently cleanses the face without leaving it taut or tight.

Purifying Neem Scrub is denser, darker in colour and contains apricot granules that gently exfoliates the skin while also containing neem that has skin purifying qualities. I would recommend this for anyone looking for a face or body scrub and also other scrubs in Apricot and Walnut as they are effective, feels great on the skin and smells pretty good.

Using  Neem Face Pack

Neem Face Pack contains Fuller’s Earth, Neem & Tumeric which has purifying and anti-bacterial properties.  A good mask pack, in my opinion helps to regulate sebum production, cleans clogged pores and prevents pimples, which this mask promises to do so. I have yet to use it regularly to attest, but it is pretty decent after my first use and impression. My only gripe about this product is that is smells too strong (I think it is due to Neem) for my preference.

Purifying Neem and Tumeric Soap has the same purifying and anti-bacterial properties which is good for cleansing the body, and especially if you have back acne like I do. However, again, I don’t quite like the strong smell of the product – I kinda wish they had this amazing product in rose scent.

Himalaya range of skincare products are available at the following retail stores – Watsons, Guardian, NTUC, Giant, Mustafa as well as NHG Polyclinics, ranging from $7.95 – $12.95.

I will be hosting 2 of the generous Himalaya Tumeric Infused skincare products gift hamper bags on my Instagram (will be posting it shortly tonight). Head over to my IG – @ena_teo and take part in the giveaway tonight!

I’ve been facing small brown bumps on my cheeks for about a year plus, which are tiny, so it’s not very visible unless you see them from a very close distance. I’ve also got two pretty visible moles above my right eye, sometimes I get asked if they’re an ant! >.< See:

While waiting for the anesthetic cream to take effect ahead of the CO2 laser, with no foundation on.

So I’m very glad that I’ve been undergoing these two laser treatments at TCS Aesthetics Clinic to treat my skin issues and give me clearer, healthier skin. ☺️

1.Q Switched + Genesis Laser  are two different but relatively light laser treatments that help to reduce skin pigmentation, acne marks and allows for skin rejuvenation. Having completed 2 sessions, these  combined laser treatment help to reduce my acne outbreaks therefore helping me achieve clearer and healthier skin than before. Q Switched laser is a more focused light treatment and has a slight sensation but not painful. Genesis laser is done with the same machine and feels like a gush of warm air which feels very comfortable.

If you’re interested, you can continue to read on to find out more about this laser treatment:

What is it?

A Q-Switched (aka Q-Switched Nd-Yag Laser) Laser is used in various procedures: the laser is a beam of energy at a specific wavelength (1064nm) which is applied to the skin and is absorbed by coloured pigments such as freckles, sun spots, age spots, etc. in the skin.

The power settings of the laser can be set at different levels and frequencies to accommodate your specific condition and expectations.

What is it used for?

  • Pigmentation (such as freckles, sun spots, age spots, brown spots, melasma, birthmarks)
  • Acne marks
  • Fairer skin
  • Skin rejuvenation
  • Pimples and acne
  • Tattoo removal

Genesis laser is intended to improve skin texture, reduce wrinkles, reduce acne scars, and diminish pore size

2.CO2 Laser is a more intensive laser treatment that helps remove bigger skin imperfections, such as darker bigger moles and/or birthmarks or acne scars. Dr Tan used it to remove my two moles above my right eyes and it is recovering very well – I will be doing another update in time to come.

What is it?

Fractional or “pixilated” carbon dioxide (CO2) lasers are one of the latest advances in non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatments. The CO2 laser has the longest wavelength of all the lasers on the market and can be used safely on darker skin types with appropriate adjustments in the settings.

What is it used for?

Fractional CO2 lasers excel at treating deeper wrinkles, more severe textural changes from sun damage, wrinkles, blotchiness, acne scars, and surgical or traumatic scars. It can be used on the delicate eyelid skin and around the mouth. It is also a very effective treatment for sun damage and precancerous growths.

Three weeks after Q-Switched laser treatment and Two weeks after CO2 laser treatment, with foundation on. Two moles above my right eye is barely visible. Dr Tan says that the brown spots will continue to lighten with time, so I will do another update with no foundation makeup on, in time to come.

Many of my close friends have asked me where I got my laser treatments done and I have recommend them Dr Ryan Tan and his excellent team at TCS Aesthetics Clinic at The Central, Clark Quay.  Dr Ryan Tan is a very patient doctor who will gently explain the procedures before starting so I feel very safe and assured under his hands during the two different laser treatments I have gone through. Their prices are also very reasonable. I highly recommend Dr Ryan Tan and TCS Aesthetics Clinic! If you’d like to find out more about the various beauty treatments they have to offer, visit their website at www.cosmeticsurgery.sg. 🙂

Thank you Dr Tan & team at TCS Aesthetics Clinic for taking care of my skin!

You’re Never Too Old to Achieve Your Dreams

I turned 27 recently over the past July. And that got me thinking that I’m 3 years shy of hitting the big 30 . It seemed so far away, when I was in my early 20s, but all of sudden, I have friends who are past 30, more are getting married and even pregnant. No, I’m not thinking about marriage – it’s still a milestone that’s not even remotely near in sight because I’m still very much single. But my recent birthday did got me thinking, just what did I achieve in the last 3-4 years since I started working and how far am I from achieving what I’d like to achieve?

And while I am not doing exceedingly well in property as some top producers are, I am doing better with every year which I am thankful for. While I still don’t own a car or close to owning my own property, I believe that these goals will become a reality in time, if I continue to be conscientious in providing good service and strategic in my plans as a property agent. Hopefully these goals will be reached sooner than later, especially since the property market is picking up in Singapore.

And while my current love life is almost non-existent (yes I admit I am picky) I am very blessed with a wide circle of friends – not just hi-bye friends but really good and supportive friends who make my life better with laughter and valuable encouragement, advice and insights.

And it got me thinking – what do I make of my life when I am 30? Heck, what do I make of my life at the end of it? Am I just going to work hard, be successful in my career, own a car, a house, find a good husband, get married and have kids? Is that all there is to my life?

Don’t get me wrong – to work hard, be successful in one’s career, own a car, a house, find a good husband, get married and have kids – that’s a great life right there. I want a life that’s greater than just these, a life that goes beyond just me.

I starting thinking – if I die today, will I leave a legacy behind? And if I do, what will that be?

I may never be able to be the next Mark Zuckerburg of Facebook, Larry Page and Sergey Brin of Google,  Bill Gates of Microsoft or Warren Buffet of the stock market world – but I still want to be able to leave a legacy and impact on this world that will live on even when I die.

My ambition in addition, or maybe in continuation of being a producing real estate agent, is to own and manage businesses and be a real estate developer (or part of a committee) when I am older. I also want to make an impact on this world by inspiring others to live a positive life – something I try to achieve through my social media platforms.

Right now I may not be able to see clearly what kind of legacy I will be leaving behind, in both tangible and intangible ways – but I believe that if I live my life earnestly one day at a time, I will be able to slow piece together the picture of my life that I envision.

No matter how old you are right now – I want to encourage you that you’re never too old to dream dreams and to achieve them.

If you’ve never heard the story of KFC by Colonel Sanders – here’s an extract from The Verge:
Sanders didn’t retire at the age of 65. That’s when he sold his first restaurant, and began developing the Kentucky Fried Chicken franchise in earnest. Nearly 60-years-old, he would spend days at a restaurant, peddling his chicken technique, cooking for customers, and often sleeping in the back of his car. At 73, he sold KFC for $2 million. He was not a billionaire, but he lived in comfort for the remainder of his years.

If Colonel Sanders can create a fried chicken franchise at the grand old grandfatherly age of 65 – what excuses do we have?

Checklist for Le Diner en Blanc First Timers

Hi Loves!

I’m excited to announce that I’ll be heading to my first Le Diner en Blanc this coming 3rd June! I’ve compiled a quick and simple checklist to get you prepared for your first Le Diner en Blanc experience. 😉

If you already know what Le Diner en Blanc is all about and want to get invited, head over the registration page here to get your invite!

What is Le Diner en Blanc (DEB) about?

Le Dîner en Blanc – Singapore returns for its fifth edition on 3rd June 2017 with a brand new team of dedicated hosts: Alexis Lhoyer, Guillaume Chabrières, and Jasmine Tuan

Le Dîner en Blanc is an international viral picnic event celebrated in over 60 cities in 25 countries where guests gather at a secret location for the sole purpose of sharing a gourmet meal with good friends in one of their city’s most unexpected public spaces. The Singapore edition began in 2012, and has been gaining traction ever since. The last edition of Le Dîner en Blanc – Singapore was in 2015, held at the Old Kallang Airport with 1,500 invited members and friends.  

Invites are open in 3 phases:

Phase 1 – For those who have attended the last edition of Le Diner en Blanc (Opened 27th April, 9am)

Phase 2 – For the invited guests of Phase 1 to invite their friends
(Opened 3rd May, 9am)

Phase 3 – Those who are new to Le Diner en Blanc – Singapore
(Opened 9th May, 9am)

All Phases will be closed by 19th May 2017 <—– Extended to 24th May, 11.30pm

Simply put, the event started in France about 30 years ago and has now spread to major cities globally. It’s a strictly by invite event, where the venue is kept completely secret and everyone who registers comes dressed in all chic formal white outfits and also prepared with an all white dinner setting (yes tables, chairs and 3 course food!). Registration allows you to sign up for bus seats which will pick you up hours ahead of the event and then take you to the secret venue. For that special evening, hundreds other Le Diner en Blanc guests will gather and dinner together, befitting the name “Dinner in White”!

Now let’s get started with the Checklist! 

1. Read Up and Get To Know Le Diner en Blanc Better.

If you’re new to a topic or subject then the right thing to do to get to know it better is to read up about it. So head over DEB’s Singapore Official Website’s FAQ to know more. From what to wear to what to bring, the answers are all there.

2. Tables, Table Cloth, Chairs & All White Cutleries

Image Credit: Pinterest

It is recommended to get square folding tables however the closest I can find online in Singapore are these 70×50 tables, so they’ll have to do! For foldable chairs you can get them here, and throw on a white lace cloth to cover it up. For affordable cutlery, make a trip down to IKEA for plates that start from $0.90!

3. 3 Course Dinner Menu Ideas

Most guests go with their Significant Other, for me I’ll be going with my bestie Christabelle and here are some very useful websites that I will refer to get inspiration for our 3 course dinner menu! Jamie Oliver’s Romantic Recipes are a great start if you’re planning to cook and pack a romantic dinner menu, they even have the level of difficulty and time taken for each meal item suggested. Another useful link is BBC’s Good Food site, they offer recipes from starters, to mains to desserts, win! One special note is that you can’t bring your own alcohol cause apparently that’s not allowed, so if you must, order from DEB’s E-Store (accessible only after registration) before closing date on 24th May and pick up at the event. Alternatively, bring your own non-alcoholic drinks. 🙂

If you want to join in the fun but have absolutely no time or skills to prepare a cooked dinner, then I suggest getting and packing these from the supermarket or convenience store:

1) Starters: Biscuits and cheese cubes

Image Credit: 2ufood.co.uk

2) Mains: Chicken with Salad

Image Credit: BBC Good Food

3) Chocolate Cake Slices

Image Credit: StayAtHomeChef.com

4. All White Outfit Ideas & Inspiration

Image Credit: phillyprgirl.com

It’s not hard to look good in all white, neither is it hard to shop for it! Probably the toughest part of this is getting the right fit for the various pieces. If you need more inspiration, head over to the results for “All White Outfit” on Pinterest! Bearing in mind that the weather in Singapore can be humid but windy at night, don’t prepare jackets or outerwear that’s too thick, but be prepared with a shawl or thin coat!

5. Be prepared for Wet Weather

Last but not the least, it can get rainy in Singapore and rather unexpectedly too. So come prepared with umbrellas and raincoats -in white if possible, if not transparent will do too!

That is all for my blog post, I do hope you’ve found this quick and simple checklist helpful – see you at the event, be sure to say hi if you see me! 😉



The Body Shop Expert Masks Dinner @ Joie & More | August Recap

Hi Loves!

It’s sure been a long time since my last monthly recap! Hopefully my next recap won’t be 3 months away, LOL. Let’s dive straight in, shall we?

TheBodyShop’s Expert Mask series has been great! My faves of the 5 are Himalayan Charcoal Purifiying Mask which not only de-clog pores but also smoothens skin texture as well as British Rose Fresh Plumping Mask which leaves my skin hydrated, refresh and I always love a rose scent!

Lunch at Toa Payoh’s Mr Bean, this laksa is really good! Also, this stirrer is really cute, didn’t buy it tho! I always like to see new nail trends online for inspiration for when I do visit a nail parlour to get my nails done, which frankly, isn’t often nowadays, haha.Was in Toa Payoh for a CPD course, speaking of which it’s time for me to attend my yearly courses again. The duties of a working adult are endless. And I love my ERA office at Toa Payoh because they offer free coffee and desserts! I wish they had this at our main Mountbatten office! Some of the informative slides about landed housing during the CPD class. Lunch with Shirley at the White Bee Hoon restaurant!Got a Pineapple for a client who was collecting keys for their resale home! It’s meant to roll on the floor for prosperity and you can enjoy the sweetness of the fruit after!  Coincidentally chancing about Mark at the office!  On the same early August day after a busy day, I met up with my gfs Smita and Leanne at The Library for bites and drinks!  The drinks are conceptualized around interesting personalities, such as Marilyn Monroe menu offers sweet flavours. I opted for Sun of Fuji which is great and as I’m typing this, I’d like to revisit this place again! Actually there are a lot of cool bars around Singapore which I haven’t yet explore, so maybe I’ll check those out first, LOL.Our drinks! Wine, Sun of Fuji and Gin and Tonic.With Smita and Leanne. <3 It was a belated birthday gathering for us as we’re all July babies! I know I know, I’m taking almost an entire year to update. Blog procrastination has been real, and I’ve said many times that I will step on it, LOL. I will really try! 😛Our bites! These are delicious too!

Was invited for Aldo’s FW launch at Paragon and I got myself these pair of lovely blush pink heels which I’ve been loving and gotten many many compliments! Yes, their SS2017 is now out, you can check them out in stores. 🙂

Also checked out Uniqlo’s LifeWear exhibition at Dempsey and saw many beautiful collaborations such as the Carine Roitfeld one above. They also opened their new flagship at Orchard Central which is awesome because you literally can find everything to suit your fashion needs! If you’ve been following me on my IG, you’ll know that I’ve been checking out their recent Minnie Mouse collection and got a few pieces for myself!

If you’re searching for comfy and trendy casual shoes, be sure to check out FitFlop at Wisma!

I really love these traditional flaky skin Teo Chew style mooncakes from Thye Moh Chan soooo much! I was actually sad that they only sell these for a limited time only and couldn’t purchase after the season. Be sure to check them out for this year’s Mooncake festival, they’re actually quite affordable at $25.80/box for a set of 4 which you can mix different flavours!

Was quite obsessed with my Bitmoji and here are some that made me smile!

My sister joined the Pokemon Go craze and here’s a pic of me with her Charmander. LOL.

Another day at Toa Payoh and here’s one of my fave dish Lei Cha at the HDB Hub basement food court. Also got my nails done in Watermelon style!Had a CG gathering, although we’ve multiplied now, those were fun times! <3Dinner with le sis, we love this Chic-a-boo outlet that’s newly opened near our place!Coffee Frappe at The Coffee Bean at Marina Square while waiting for clients to arrive or a meeting.
Not quite sure what this was doing in my August photos record but anyway he’s too cute not to post, in case you’re wondering where this is from, it’s from A Bug’s Life, one my favourite Disney animations! OOTD, in my silver slip ons from Fit-flop.Dinner with my friend Royce, we had Teo Chew porridge at Beauty World.

 I had the privilege to attend Anna Sui’s FW event at Sentosa and the event space was SO LOVELY. The bloggers and I in attendance couldn’t stop snapping away not only at the products but at the entire set up! One of my all time fave perfume is Anna Sui’s Lucky Wish, it’s a lovely powdery floral scent that’s neither too light nor strong. I recommend you checking it out!

Attending DFS Beauty Class at DFS Orchard and tried the Lancome Energie De Vie which was very refreshing and saw this really cute Michael Kors mini bagpack which was not cheap tho, it was around $700? You could get a bigger work tote with this price, but I guess it’s a really cute colour and design. Also got a fun goodie bag with HR mascara and IOPE blush, tried both out and they’re pretty good, you can buy these from DFS! 🙂

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Attended Clozette’s Diva event at Bugis+ and got a cute metallic tattoo and grabbed dinner with Fenny and her BF after!

Met up with Fenny for dinner and thanks to her friend, we got a 1for1 deal via his Entertainer App at ARC Cafe! The duck confit is not as good at Saveur but the beef dish was not bad!

Attended Bottega Verde’s event of the launch of their Custom Moisturizer, simply get your skin reading done at their Suntec outlet and an order will be made in Italy before sending it over to Singapore for your collection. I’ve used mine as a day moisturizer as it contains SPF and while it’s cream base it is lightweight for Singapore’s weather.  The same evening, Fenny and I visited Woow’s new store at Plaza Singapore, have you tried this refreshing rainbow dessert ice yet? 😉

Thanks to Base Asia Entertainment and Nuffnang, my sister and I attended the Premiere night of Annie the Musical which I enjoyed very much!

Went for a long overdue facial session at Atlas Medispa, always enjoy my sessions there. 🙂

Saw some kids playing at the fountain close to home and kinda wish I was a kid and able to do something like this!

Had dinner at home with the family consisting of takeaway and we kinda over did it with too many items! 😛

Celebrated Netccentric’s 10th Anniversary at Red Dot Museum with some fellow influencers! Last picture with my manager Christina who’ve left, wishing you all the best babe!  Joined Leanne’s Mac Masterclass and Robinsons styling event at Robinsons at Heeren and it was great fun with the girls, Fenny and Raa!

Funny story to tell, I use to be able to take every bus back home from the closest MRT station but then this bus 26 changed route and I would end up taking it multiple times and alight at a bus stop further away and end up walking the longer way home and it almost always happened to be on my heels! >.< After about 3 times, I would carefully avoid 26. 😛

Ending off this month’s recap with some of the beauty goodies sent my way!

TheBodyShop TeaTree Duo is great for battling acne outbreak. Recently, I had a skincare outbreak because of a product I used which was too oily for me, and I immediately use the 3in1 TeaTree as Mask and my skin improved rapidly the next morning.L’Oreal constantly comes out with new hair innovations and range, this OleoTherapy consists of Oil Infused hair products, made with Oils from 6 flowers which boasts to restore dull, dry and damaged hair. For more information check out hereThanks to my friend Sybs who went to Korea, I got a stash of Innisfree products, and she highly recommended this Sebum Oil Free Primer which really does keep skin matte all day. Thanks to my gfs who got this set of Furla pouches or my birthday I’ve found these to be so handy and useful!

Some of my favourite products for August, and the silver tube is the body gel that goes with Refa massager to keep skin moisturized and taut.

That’s all for August’s recap, hope you enjoyed it! Leave me a comment if you have any questions or suggestions and I’ll get back as soon as I can! <3

Beauty Review: Naka Kirei Enzymes From Japan

I've been getting a lot of questions via comments and emails and my sincere apologies in advance that I am unable to attend to them because they are repeated questions which I will attempt to answer here.
1.If you're planning to purchase in Malaysia, you can do so via this website: http://my.nakakirei.com/
2. Any questions pertaining to how I find the product is in the last paragraph of this post, additionally there are 30 capsules in each bag, I completed the entire bag in a month and I found it helped me to maintain a flat tummy. However I cannot guarantee it will work for you and I cannot attest how effective it is compared to other fat burning products because I have not tried the others before.
3. Last but not the least, if you have any more questions pertaining to the product and purchase of the product, you can email to: tw@nakakirei.com. Many thanks for coming by my blog and good luck! <3

In case you didn’t already know, I’m a huge fan of beauty and health supplements. I started taking them for better skin since I was 18 and I’ve never looked back. As I grow older I find that I would take different health supplements to tackle whatever health issues I was more concerned at the particular point in time.

So recently I was introduced to Naka Kiri Enzymes from Japan and as a beauty/health supplement enthusiast, I was naturally very intrigued by it!

Let me break down the information I’ve obtained for your easy consumption:

Not even gonna name the cafe, both Belles recommended this cafe but that day we went, it served up lousy lemonade – granted they replaced it but their service still sucked nonetheless. You’d notice I usually don’t complain about stuff on my blog cause I don’t like to give air time to shitty things but man – this cafe is crap and if you know which it is, don’t ever go back again and I can’t wait to pop a champagne on the day they close. Birthday Celebrations & Batam trip | Enabalista July 2016 Blog Recap_017 Birthday Celebrations & Batam trip | Enabalista July 2016 Blog Recap_018

Skincare goodies!Birthday Celebrations & Batam trip | Enabalista July 2016 Blog Recap_041Was sent over some products from Gobigoun (Korea), This Placenta Power mask is super good… and under the rader… When I saw a store stocking it at Myeong Dong it was selling a piece for like $10/piece! Is it worth it? $10 is too much for me to shell out for a piece, but it definitely hydrates my skin intensely.

We tried a bit of everything, truffle soup ramen was good, but for the other times I went back after this, I opted for their regular ramen! 🙂 The cold veg was surprisingly good, the chicken was not good – don’t order it!

Dinner at 555(?)

Ok, so the mistake we made was to take up the resort’s driver’s offer to go on a “day trip intinerary” with him and he gave us ALL THE SHITTY RECOMMENDATIONS. 🙁 So other than our Batam Plaza choice, he brought us to a bad massage place and this terrible dinner place, urgh.

Bestie’s treat to Korean good at Manna Story at Plaza Singapura. Food was so-so in my opinion. Nothing to shout about. Would go again only if I was craving Korean food and in the area. Would prefer Seoul Yummy at Bugis+ over this option!

Lunch at Whitegrass @ Chijmes is Bomb | June Recap

Hey hey!

The months have been kinda crazy, to say the least and I’ve most definitely neglected my blog. 🙁 Now that crazy January is over, and I’m slowing easing back to a somewhat more normal schedule and quitting on Korean dramas and Youtube binge watching, I’ll be compiling each month’s happening into one post each, so we’ve got 8 to go considering this is June 2016’s recap! XD Just compiling the photos for June into this post and looking back at the fond memories made me smile, I hope you’ll enjoy this post and come to enjoy the upcoming months’ updates as much as I enjoy looking back at them! Also, I’m more convinced to get active on Youtube moving forward (promise I will once I clear these 8 posts!) because it will be way more fun looking back via videos! I won’t be linking to brands and websites as I’d usually do (to save time, really) – but if you see any brands / products / whatever that a quick google doesn’t answer, let me know in comments below and I will do my best to get back to you.

6 Bags Every Lady Needs

We don’t wear the same pair of shoes for every occasion in life. There are work flats, event heels and sports shoes. Similarly, in my opinion every modern lady should have these 6 bags in her wardrobe to carry her through the week.

(1) The Everyday Work Bag

(1) Work Bag

A roomy black Boston bag like this is perfect as an everyday and work bag because it can carry most essentials like wallet, diary and water bottle. Black is also a colour that goes well with all outfits and suitable for most (if not all) occasions.

(2) Day Clutch

(2) Day Clutch

If you’re planning to head out for a quick lunch appointment or coffee run, it’s not always necessary to carry your entire bag – a handy day clutch is perfect for some cash and tissues. Also, don’t you think that this sweet floral design is really apt for the Lunar New Year period and Spring season that’s coming right up?

(3) The Weekender

(3) Weekender 2

The Weekender is my favourite type of bags – maybe it’s because I like spacious bags that allows me to carry lots of things without having to separate them into 2 bags and it’s definitely also because these bags are great for staycations and as on-flight bag.

(4) The Crossbody Bag

(4) Crossbody

For off-work and weekends, it’s recommended to switch out the everyday work bag for something more casual, laidback and pretty – to suit the mood! Bucket bags have totally been making a come back – it’s the perfect cute and trendy crossbody right now.

(5) Cosmetic Bag

(6) Cosmetic Pouch

This bag maybe small but it’s definitely essential. Instead of rummaging your bag for your lipstick and blusher, store them in this square pouch. You can also grab the entire pouch and make a quick trip to the toilet before leaving work instead of awkwardly holding them in your hands. You can even pick from multiple cute prints for this pouch!

(6) The Tote

(5) Tote

The Tote is probably the most practical bag of the lot – it’s roomy without being too bulky, it can double up as a work bag and if you pick a soft colour like beige, you can carry it for both formal and casual events.

Lately I’ve been able to go out in style on the weekends with these 2 cute clutch sling bags.

6 Bags Every Lady Needs | Enabalista_0000Each bag came with stuffing and wrapped in paper to keep the bag in shape and protected.
6 Bags Every Lady Needs | Enabalista_0001The cosmetic pouch can store quite a fair bit of items! Here’s a vintage looking clutch bag.6 Bags Every Lady Needs | Enabalista_00036 Bags Every Lady Needs | Enabalista_0002 And this is the other cute pink clutch sling, which matches well with white or pastel outfits, it also comes in other colours if you’re keen!
