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

April Recaps



Hi Lovelies!

YES, it’s time for another monthly update! *Throws confetti in the air*

I know, I know. I am *ahem* just about 3.5 months late…
That’s not embarrassingly late at all, right? I mean, it’s not April 2015 yet, right? 😛

So, you may not believe it like I do, but somehow while I was clearing my April photos folder, I somehow managed to find photos from February and March. LOL. Some of the photos I think I didn’t published on my blog previously.

For the uninitiated/ readers new to my blog, I’ve only started a monthly update a while back, of my personal life and what nots that I find amusing but doesn’t properly fall into an event or review blog post, so I’ve decided to combine them into a major long photo post of sorts.

Anyhoo, that’s long enough for an intro, enjoy! 😉

Jap Ramen with Cheryl2014-02-19 18.49.08_newJap Ramen with Cheryl2014-02-19 20.26.37_new

Met up with Cheryl my JC classmate back in Feb, been about 5 years since we last met and she doesn’t seem to have aged at all. Still pretty and sweet as ever! We had dinner at this ramen place at the 3rd or 4th level of Parco Next Next and I believe this place has shifted out. Not too sure what the name of the place is called but they seem to serve their specialty ramen with black garlic oil. Definitely yummy!

Ena April Recap 20142014-03-23 13.44.50_new

A March pic, which I posted on my Instagram. Basically my first random/spontaneous fried rice I cooked for lunch. Leftover rice, egg, luncheon meat. Was not particularly savory but passable! Well at least it looks decent. 😛

So I’m not sure why I didn’t include these pics into my March update, basically my friends and I had brunch on the last day of March, a cafe that Jacq was quite eager to check out after reading some good reviews online; Stirling Highway.

Char & Brunch~Stirling Highway Review2014-03-30 14.48.58_new

My Salmon Eggs Benedict, which was disappointing to say the least. Very unfortunately when we reached at about 2pm, they already didn’t have quite a lot of lunch items (even though it was legit lunch time) and it was also too early for dinner items like Truffle fries. The waitress had to “check in with the kitchen” to see if we could order brunch items. It was surprising that their stock had run out on a Sunday afternoon. And the salmon in the eggs benedict was bad, as in smelled spoilt upon my first bite that I had to request to return it. For the record, I rarely ever do something like that because I know how insulting it is to the kitchen. Nonetheless they returned it back to me, citing that that’s how the Hollandaise sauce smells like… So I just removed the salmon pieces and finished my meal feeling quite absurd about the whole situation. However the only lightness of the entire situation was they decided to give me a 20% discount for the meal, although they did not admit that the Salmon was not fresh.

Therefore I would not recommend nor go back to this place. This place is also really far for me since I stay in the east, so I doubt I would go back to this place! 😛

Yes, now going to April photos proper. Lol!
April was pretty good, or at least so it seems from the photos in this post, lol.

April 1st was April Fools Day, in case you forgot. And Google is super fond of having cool stuff for everyone. So for this year’s April Fool’s special thing, it was catching Pokemon on Google Maps! I obviously went quite crazy trying to catch ’em all. Key word being trying. I didn’t managed to catch all 150 of them in 24 hours. 🙁

I think I caught a grand total of 38/150 Pokemon. #majorfail LOL!

Oh apparently Google sent a hardcopy mail to all those who caught 150 Pokemons to “certify” them as Pokemon masters!

Another time I ordered Pork Chop. Which is also major yums and highly recommended!

Go visit if you work/stay or just popping by around the area!

It’s right next to a Japanese restaurant at Lorong 4 Toa Payoh. I can’t seem to find the address online, but I’ll ask for it the next time I’m there and update here again. 😛

If you were living under a rock unaware, back in April, a small Ming dynasty-era bowl dubbed the “chicken cup” sold for 281.2 million Hong Kong dollars (US$36.3 million) at a Sotheby’s sale in Hong Kong on Tuesday, setting a record for the most expensive Chinese porcelain ever sold at auction, see article on Wall Street Journal here.

I was so impressed that I immediately when to my kitchen, took out this chicken dish, and proceeded to snap the following pictures. I am sorry to disappoint, but it’s not going to be sold for millions, it’s just priced at $2,000. Don’t ask me why it’s sold for $2,000, not $200 or $20,000. Cause you know, you shouldn’t be so caught up with the price, I just like the price $2,000. Should you be so keen to purchase this rare and exquisite item, you may email me at enabalista @ gmail.com (no gaps). 🙂

Nine Thirty Review2014-04-16 21.20.15_new

I believe this to be the most expensive chocolate milk there. It deserves a precious photo such as this, with my second sister modeling. I do believe you’re paying more for the circular bottle than for the milk as well. It’s $7-8 for a bottle, if you were wondering.

My second sis and I had NeNe chicken from Bedok Mall. The last I checked today (in August) it’s no longer there. 🙁 Nothing is quite like it, although 4 Fingers come close, it’s probably as delicious but the flavour isn’t the same. We had spicy and garlic if I didn’t recall wrongly.

Was invited down for Bill Ang and Friend’s concert at Lowercase. Attended the 1st one last November and was glad to be down again, HOW TIME FLIES GUYS. >.<

Enabalista Sun Blocks2014-04-30 00.41.05_newThere was a day in April when I wanted to post this particular photo up on Instagram, but I just couldn’t. It’s one of those weird unexplainable technology/Instagram faux pax and so this photo never made it to my Instagram. It’s basically a photo of all the sunblocks I have. 10. I believe I have more than 10 now as of August. 😛 A beauty blogger never says no to more beauty products, esp. Sunblocks! Haha.

Alright! That pretty much sums up my exciting April with a lot of food and friends. Ena will never say no to food and friends. 😛

ION Insider | A date with YSL, Estee Lauder & Dior Beauty

Hi Lovelies! <3


ION Orchard, the beautiful mall along Orchard is looking for ION Insider resident bloggers! When selected, the resident bloggers will receive exclusive opportunities to preview and review events and upcoming collections presented by the brands at ION Orchard. The reviews will be up on ION Orchard’s blog, which is still in the works. From my knowledge, there will be fashion, beauty, lifestyle & food bloggers. As to how many bloggers will be selected is still a mystery! 😉


Yes, the search is ON and underway!


And after submitting my details to them,  I’m one of the selected bloggers for a date with three beauty brands that I love. Lucky us, I know! But lucky you too, because I’ll be sharing with you the tips learnt from the demonstrations. 😉

But hold your horses, ’cause some pictures of our Bécasse breakfast is expected to tantalize your sight before we start our beauty date proper. 😉photo 1

On my way for ION Insider beauty date! Can you feel my excitement? becasse-bakery-ion-orchard-singapore

Here at Bécasse ION, a popular french inspired bakery from Australia! (Yes you read that right, it’s like our homegrown Sakae Sushi expanding to China. 😉 ) Bécasse has its origins in high-end artisan patisserie and bakery and its setting is designed to make you feel like you’re dining in Paris!SAM_5875

A sumptuous spread of sweet and savoury treats!

Here’s what’s served:

High tea Sweet:

Raspberry and Chocolate feuilletine

Banana tart with salted peanuts

Scones served with jam + crème fraiche

Macarons: salted caramel & coconut-pineapple

Hazelnut cappuccino crème pot

High tea Savoury:

Crab rillettes on baby lettuce

Foie gras mousse toast


King crab brioche sandwich


I specially picked out this flat lay style shot from MakanMemory blog here, to show you the unadulterated beauty of the tea set! Remarkable isn’t it? 😉SAM_5900

Another flat lay style of their breakfast mains. You’ll be glad like I am to know that they serve breakfast sets ALL-DAY. Do I hear a hooray? 😀SAM_5877

Mixed berry French toast, served with poached pear & fresh ricotta.


Egg royal, served with smoked salmon, baked spinach & Hollandaise sauce.


Croque Madame, on brioche bread served with truffle oil baked eggs. Ohhh, yes.

I didn’t get to try all of their mains above but I did have a hearty serving of the Truffle Baked Free Range Eggs. It is as amazing as it sounds. All of you who love truffle fries? You say you love eggs like I do? Then you’re gonna have to try this. One word of advise from the bakery attendant tho, you have to eat it ideally upon serving cause otherwise the egg will be left to cooked and it won’t taste as nice when it’s overly cooked. 😉

We were each given a 3 Minute Beauty pamphlet with: Signature Service. Secret Techniques. Instant transformations.

NEW ZA Rich-Glam Liquid Rouge Bloggers’ Event & Review

Hi guys! 😀

A while ago I attended ZA’s Rich-Glam Liquid Rouge Bloggers’ Event
and here’s snippets of how it went! 😉

ZA Rich-Glam Liquid Rouge Enabalista 2 ZA Rich-Glam Liquid Rouge Enabalista 3 ZA Rich-Glam Liquid Rouge Enabalista 4 ZA Rich-Glam Liquid Rouge Enabalista 5 ZA Rich-Glam Liquid Rouge Enabalista 6 ZA Rich-Glam Liquid Rouge Enabalista 7 ZA Rich-Glam Liquid Rouge Enabalista 8 ZA Rich-Glam Liquid Rouge Enabalista 9 ZA Rich-Glam Liquid Rouge Enabalista 10 ZA Rich-Glam Liquid Rouge Enabalista

The entire hall was decked out in varying hues of pink with black accents,
with lots of “Fun Facts” about lips
and booth activities/games for us bloggers to take part in, including match the cards and
“My Lip Personality”!

Speaking of which, my reading is as such:

“Bow-shape lips”
You are an expressive, seductive person who likes to fly with her own wings.
You pursue the things you love fearlessly and speak your mind..

Love Life
You need someone who stimulates you both mentally and physically.

Hayden Panettiere, Reese Witherspoon

About 80% true. 😉

On my lips: a light coat of ZA Rich-Glam Liquid Rouge in RS481, Deep Pink.


Go sexy with pink or demure with beige? 😉

My Review of the NEW ZA Rich-Glam Liquid Rouge

I personally find the new liquid rouge a very unique blend of lipgloss and lipstick.
Imagine your favourite lipstick, now in liquid consistency.
It is unexpectedly non sticky, unlike how some lip gloss is and it has pretty decent staying power,
up to half a day, like the regular lipsticks.
It’s formulation is inspired by ladies who desire the shine of lip gloss with the pigmentation of lipsticks! 😉

At $18.90 a pop, in stores from 30 Jan 2014.
ZA can be bought at most Watsons stores island wide in Singapore. 😉



My Morning Beauty Routine!

Hello my lovelies!

Morning Skincare Beauty Routine

Check out my usual face, at work, with no filter! 😛

Today I’m sharing a vlog of my current morning beauty routine! It’s a video that I’ve been wanting to do for the longest time, every morning as I run through the same routine, I imagine how fun it will be to share my experience and tutorial with all of you! So FINALLY here it is! 😀

I didn’t state on the video, I have combination skin; normal with oily T-zone and I’m concerned with enlarged pores on nose and cheeks area. So acne-care, hydration and whitening (lightening of blemishes) is important to me in my skincare. I also take care that all the skincare and make up products I use are non-comodegenic (does not clog pores). I’ve been using this range of products for about a year now. Also, I’m 23 going 24 this year. So skincare products for me have to be affordable as much as it is effective. As for make up, I believe in paying more for good quality foundation, blusher and eyeliner. While lip colour can be bought at cheaper prices (usually they are priced cheaper too) as I usually change my lip colour everyday depending on my mood and what I wear.

Products featured, in sequence:

Johnson & Johnson Clean & Clear Deep Action Cleanser with Microbeads
Johnson & Johnson Baby Cooling Powder (Back)
Johnson & Johnson Clean & Clear Essentials Oil Control Toner
Hada Labo Whitening Lotion
Hada Labo UV Whitening Emulsion

Make Up:
Estee Lauder Illuminating Perfecting Primer
Estee Lauder Double Wear Moisture Powder Stay in Place Makeup
Estee Lauder Pure Colour 01 Violet Underground Cyber Metallic
Maybelline Impact Express Smooth Felt Liner
Star Lash Golden Ratio Eyebrow Pencil
The Face Shop Lovely ME:EX Cushion Blusher in Coral
Mentholatum Q-10 Lip Gel / Maybelline Baby Lips
Etude House Lipstick in Coral (Not sure what range it falls under, bought it on offer in 2013)

I say “mmm-mhmm” too much in the video.

I will film another “My Night Beauty Routine” soon as well as
“My Top 10 Holy Grail Beauty Products” videos so do look out for them! 😉

Let me know if you have any other good video ideas that I can do! 🙂

Some pics I took the day I filmed the video:
