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.

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!



Anti-Oxidants Benefits Featuring Renovatio Supplement & Face Cream

Hi guys!

If you’ve read my last post or been updated with my social posts, you’d know that I am currently in the UK on holiday to visit my sister who’s studying here.

Well, in the midst of my holiday I want to share with you guys two Renovatio products that are high in anti-oxidants that I’ve been taking and using during this trip!

Before I delve into the products details and reviews, let’s talk about what anti-oxidants are and why they are good for our body.

What are Anti-Oxidants

In my layman term, anti-oxidants are good things that are mostly found in fresh fruits and vegetables, such as orange, tomatoes, berries and they are good in prevention of radicals (bad things) and hence particularly good in preventing cancer. However, this does not sound very scientific or impressive, so I am going to input excerpts from a website, verywell.com (thanks Google!):

Antioxidants are substances that may protect cells in your body from free radical damage that can occur from exposure to certain chemicals, smoking, pollution, radiation, and as a byproduct of normal metabolism. Dietary antioxidants include selenium, vitamin A and related carotenoids, vitamins C and E, plus various phytochemicals such as lycopene, lutein, and quercetin.

You can find these antioxidants in many different foods that you’re probably eating right now.

There are large amounts of antioxidants in fruits, vegetables, nuts, and whole grains and smaller amounts of antioxidants in meats, poultry, and fish. Junk foods, such as highly processed fast foods tend to be much lower in antioxidants. No surprise.

Health Benefits

Consuming foods rich in antioxidants may be good for your heart health and may also help to lower your risk of infections and some forms of cancer.

As Dietary Supplement

Antioxidants are available as dietary supplements, but research doesn’t indicate that these supplements are beneficial. While research supports increasing your intake of dietary sources, the results are not as impressive when the individual antioxidants are extracted and studied alone.

Antioxidant extracts often show remarkable results in laboratory studies (test tubes, lab dishes and sometimes in lab animals), but when they’re used in human clinical trials, the results for disease and death prevention have been disappointing.

One exception was the National Eye Institute study of age-related eye disease, which suggested that a combination of antioxidants reduced the risk of developing advanced stages of age-related macular degeneration.

So according to verywell.com, antioxidant supplements have not been very remarkable on human clinical trials, but in a particular study it has provened to reduce the risk of developing aging of macular degeneration (i.e. Blindness).

Now, we have a clearer picture of Anti-oxidants and why they’re good for us, let me share my reviews of Renovatio’s supplement and face cream!

First off, it’s Renovatio’s  An Apple A Day Activated Phenolics Broad Spectrum Anti-Oxidant Whole Body Cellular Protection Supplement.

Renovatio touts this supplement to be “the world’s most potent dietary antioxidant tablet”.

Here’s more info. obtained from their official website:

100% natural broad spectrum antioxidant. The antioxidants you need on a daily basis to promote health and wellbeing in a convenient tablet form suitable for both adults and children.

Uniquely containing Activated Phenolicantioxidants that have been naturally extracted to be highly potent and easily absorbed by your body.

‘An Apple a Day’ Activated Phenolic antioxidants are derived from the healthiest of fruit – Apples (Malus domestica).

Apples are unique, in that out of the 1,755 different types of edible fruit, they contain the highest proportion of free phenolic antioxidants.

This may lend some truth to the proverb that has been passed down through both western and eastern culture – ‘An apple a day, keeps the doctor away‘.

Activated Phenolics are powerful antioxidants that neutralise a wide range of free radicals to protect your cells from damage and inflammation.

Studies have shown phenolic antioxidants contribute to the protection and recovery from degenerative, digestive and inflammatory conditions as well as contributing to weight loss and maintaining energy levels.

‘An Apple a Day’ is made in Australia from 100% Australian ingredients.

DIRECTIONS: Suitable for adults and children. Take one tablet each day or as directed by your health care professional.’

My Review

I have been taking this daily for about a week, I am loving this supplement and have been taking it to replace my multi-vitamin. Especially Vitamin B pill which is a type of vitamin that provides me with lots of healthy energy that keeps me going strong (in addition to coffee, haha) all day through without feeling tired. I realized after taking Renovatio’s An Apple A Day for a few days, I feel more energetic and less tired at the end of the day, So this supplement has been particularly helpful when we had long days while travelling in Paris recently.  I would definitely recommend this supplement to anyone who’s looking for a healthy way to boost your energy levels especially if you have long working hours, or generally feel dull and lethargic. Available on Renovatio.com for AUS$29.95 for 30 tablets (one month).

Secondly, it’s Renovatio’s APSKIN face cream. 

Transform your skin, boosting your skin’s glow and radiance.

Scientifically formulated from apples, nature’s best source of broad spectrum antioxidants.  Phenolic antioxidants from apples are the world’s most potent antioxidants.

APSKIN protects, regenerates and restores skin at the cellular level like no other face cream available. Use APSKIN to transform your skin, boosting your skin’s glow and radiance.

Nourishing your skin at the cellular level, APSKIN is formulated to protect elastin and collagen structures, leaving your skin transformed, glowing and ageless.

A luxurious, hydrating and restorative face cream that smooths and improves your complexion.

Noticeable results can be seen after using APSKIN for 3, especially in areas of discolouration, damage or stress*.

Use twice daily for the best results.

The power of eight antioxidants, extracted from a single source to maximise cellular synergistic affinity.

DIRECTIONS: Apply APSKIN over the face or neck. For women and men of all skin types and can be worn alone or under make up.

My Review

Generally I tend towards water based skincare for moisturizer as creams have the tendency to break me out as I have acne prone skin. However being in London and Paris in winter have been great to provide me with the right environment to test this product as my skin becomes dryer and requires a richer cream to keep my skin hydrated. I love the apple smell that comes with this cream (a first for me in my skincare regime history) and when I apply it at night it does keep my skin hydrated all through the next morning. I would recommend this product for fellow Singaporeans (or SEAsians in hot and humid weather) if you have dry skin or sleep in air-con all night and also if you’re somewhere with cold and dry weather (like Europe in winter). Available on Renovatio.com for AUD$28.50 for 100ml.

All in all, I must say both products were a welcomed surprised for me, I was taken by the premise of the brand capturing the healthy powers of Apple in supplement and skincare form and I am glad they did not disappoint. I look forward to Renovatio expanding the skincare brand APSKIN into a full range because I definitely think there’s a potential for a skincare brand and range rich in anti-oxidants.

Shoutout and thanks to Invigorate PR and Renovatio for sending the products over for review! All opinions are my own.



Reflections 2017

Typing this while waiting for our bus to head to Holy Trinity Brampton church for Sunday service on the last day of the year.

Am really thankful for all that has happened in 2017, highlights being the travels with my family; visiting the flower fields in Hokkaido with my parents in summer, Christmas Eve dinner with my relatives at my big sister’s house, spending Christmas and New Year’s with my second sister in London and taking a trip out to Paris to see the Eiffel Tower when I’m here.

Career wise, I count my blessings especially with each and every client and referral that trust me with their business. Am particularly expectant for a productive and fruitful business year in 2018 with clients and cases lining up for follow up when I’m back!

Spiritually, increasingly I find myself living the “Let go” life that Pastor Prince spoke heavily about this year. It’s really a lot easier said then done but I believe after 4 years I am finally closer to what it really is to live a life surrendered and dependent on my savior, protector and provider, Jesus Christ.

Year after year I grow in appreciation of friends that continue to keep in contact with knowing how busy everyone gets and how priorities shifts with changes in life. For all my friends who are reading this, know that every time you spend with me over a meal, message you send on WhatsApp, comment you leave on Instagram is not lost on me and very much appreciated.

I wrote in a previous message that I want to “Value Add” to people all around in my 2018 and to that I also will make my 2018 the most productive and fruitful year.
I hope that you’re enjoying the last day of 2017 and that 2018 will treat you well.

Love & God Bless,


P.S. Fingers crossed I get to see Pastor Nicky Gumbel for service later, have been listening to his Bible in One Year all year long !

I will build my life upon Your love

It is a firm foundation

I will put my trust in You alone

And I will not be shaken

I will build my life upon Your love

It is a firm foundation

I will put my trust in You alone

And I will not be shaken

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!



My journey to clearer & healthy skin with TCS Aesthetics Central Clinic

Do you face facial pigmentations, skin bumps / tacs & moles like I do? Well, I’ve got an excellent solution for your skincare woes to share with you today!

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!

Be sure to call ahead and quote “ENA” when booking your appointment especially if you want to drop by at lunch hour as they are usually busy then!

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

2) Mains: Chicken with Salad

Image Credit: BBC Good Food

3) Chocolate Cake Slices

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! 😉

Of China Blue Dress & Comfy Grey Tops

I don’t know about you, but I very much prefer shopping in person in stores over online shopping when it comes to clothings – you certainly can’t touch or feel the material or see the size and fit of a piece on clothing online! That said, I consider myself blessed because my body size usually fits whatever the fit model dons on line (S or M) although I am a lot shorter then them, haha. So when I do come across a credible online website that ships affordable fashion – It makes me excited to share it with you!

The website in mention for today’s post is FashionMia. I picked a Round Neck Blue and White China Dress and 2 grey tops which I’ve been loving and wearing of late. Gotta say the material for its price is really decent and most importantly – comfortable!

Was out grocery shopping for dinner with my sister while in my dress hence the supermarket background photos you’ll see below. You can find the grey hoodie top here. For more dresses here and tops here.

Happy shopping!

Kapten & Son; for the adventurers and global citizens

How we dress is a way of self-expression and how we want others to perceive us. I’ve always worn a watch since I started going to school and I’ve always picked watches that express who I am. When I was younger, pink and white were colours of choice, they were colourful, cute and fun. But as I grew older, I gravitated to black colour as it’s not only easy to match but suitable for all occasions, totally practical. However recently I’ve taken a strong liking to rose gold as it’s not only a lovely but trending and fashionable colour.

My recent favourite watch of choice is from Kapten & Son’s in Campina with a Mesh band, black face and in rose gold colour. I love how the brand is designed for the adventurers and global citizens, folks who revel in freedom and enjoy travelling.  I also love how my watch is perfect for work appointments but also looks chic for casual events.

Grab your Kapten & Son watch of choice on their website here.

Live life Fresh and in Style with COLAB™ Dry Shampoos

<Sponsored Post>


I don’t know about you, but I’m a huge fan of dry shampoo. So much so that after hearing me sing praises for dry shampoo, my friend calls me “an advocate for dry shampoo”!


I’ve discovered the wonders of dry shampoo only about a year ago and I’ve never looked back since! There are many reasons why I love dry shampoo but in short, dry shampoo helps keep my scalp and hair fresher for longer, it even keeps my hair looking chio-er with more volume and smelling good!

  1. Dry Shampoo keeps hair fresher for longer

My preferred dry shampoo of choice is COLAB™ Sheer+Invisible’s Monaco Fresh Fragrance with lemon, mandarin and light amber scents. Even when I don’t wash my hair in the morning and I need to get ready and out of home in a jiffy, a spritz of COLAB™ Sheer+Invisible Range’s Monaco Fresh Fragrance in my hair makes my hair smell fresh, like I just came out of the shower and I love it!

colab-cola-sheerinvisible-range-review-and-colab-extreme-volume-review-enabalista_0002 colab-cola-sheerinvisible-range-review-and-colab-extreme-volume-review-enabalista_0005 colab-cola-sheerinvisible-range-review-and-colab-extreme-volume-review-enabalista_0003 colab-cola-sheerinvisible-range-review-and-colab-extreme-volume-review-enabalista_0006colab-cola-sheerinvisible-range-review-and-colab-extreme-volume-review-enabalista_0014colab-cola-sheerinvisible-range-review-and-colab-extreme-volume-review-enabalista_0020colab-cola-sheerinvisible-range-review-and-colab-extreme-volume-review-enabalista_0025

2. Dry Shampoo adds volume to limp hair

Another reason why I love dry shampoo is because it dries up any oil in my scalp and it adds volume to my hair at the same time! So any limp hair is revived and got me looking like I stepped out of a salon after a blow out. If you’re all about adding volume to your hair, I recommend COLAB™ Extreme Volume, here I’ve got it in the London Classic Fragrance with rose, magnolia and woody musk scents.

3. Dry Shampoo makes hair smell fresh and good

Last but not the least, dry shampoo removes any hair odours and adds a fresh fragrance to my hair! Just like how I pick my perfumes, depending on my mood, I like to pick COLAB™ Sheer+Invisible in New York in  Fruity Fragrance with citrusy, rose and violet notes on sunny days and Tokyo Oriental Fragrance with Mandarin, Jasmine notes when I’m feeling a little more feminine.

How To Get Hair-Ready with COLAB™’s Dry Shampoo!:

<1. Spray 20cm away from scalp>


<2. Comb through hair and style>

<3. Voila~ Looking fresh and smelling good!>


Some days when I’m out and about for work and blogging activities the whole day and want to keep my hair looking fresh and smelling good, I bring my COLAB™ Dry Shampoo out with me! Other beauty babies I bring with me to keep me looking and feeling good includes a facial mist to keep my skin hydrated, hand cream to keep my hand moisturised and lipstick to keep my lips always looking on point! 😉


I also know girlfriends who place their dry shampoo at their work desk, so after going out for lunch,  they will use the dry shampoo to remove any “odours” and greasiness from lunch!


And that’s me on a regular day, out and about for work, blogging and personal appointments! Gotta thank COLAB™ for hair that’s tamed, oil free and though you can’t tell, smelling good.


COLAB™ Sheer+Invisible Range and COLAB™ Extreme Volume Dry Shampoos available at $13.90 and $14.90 island wide. Visit COLAB™ SG’s Facebook for exciting updates about hair and their products!

7 Recommended Beauty & Wellness Spots in Korea!

Are you planning for a pampering  trip with your girlfriends / mum or sisters soon?  I was just in Korea last month for a Beauty and Wellness trip and had the privilege to experience the best of Beauty and Wellness that Korea has to offer. Today’s post will cover 7 beauty spots and services that we visited which I highly recommend! Maybe you can KIV some spots for your next trip! 😉

(1) K-Beauty Makeover at Beauté 101

Beauté 101 is one of Korea’s top 1-stop shop for all your beauty needs; hair, makeup and nails. Need to prep for a night out in Korea? Fret not – just be in your outfit for the night, factor 2-3 hours with them and you’ll be ready to rock and roll in style, with your tresses, makeup and nails done. I also recommend checking out the nearby alleyways for cute spots for OOTDs like we did! For a basic hair styling, makeup and nails package like I did, it costs 242,000 won (S$298), add another 100,000 won (S$122) to upgrade to a party/special package. Located in Gangam, check out their Facebook page here and be sure to reserve in advance for your slot.

(2) Luxe Facial Spa at Sulwhasoo Flagship Store

If you’re travelling with your mum or favourite aunt, may I suggest and recommend booking a luxe Facial Spa at Sulwhasoo Flagship Store – Korea’s equivalent of La Mer, whether it’s products, place or service, it won’t disappoint. On the ground floor, you’ll find exhibitions of past and present products and packaging. If you think that the ground floor is astounding, you’ll be further impressed by their second level where #interiorgoals abound. You’ll find a gift wrapping segment followed by an array of current ranges of products which are free for testing followed by a private lounge area where you can sip tea and enjoy testing out the products one by one, including the famed Sulwhasoo – Harmonizen Regenerating Cream which costs 650,000 (S$800). Yes that’s right you didn’t read wrong. After shopping (according to the local staff, the store is very generous with their samples and price after discounts for tourists is even better than airport). Before you’re ushered off for your spa, enjoy a vial of ginseng ampoule (drank, not applied), complemented with a cuppa green tea to balance the bitterness of the ginseng. Following which, you can proceed to their spa level and then into individual rooms which are designed like hotel rooms, with individual shower room. The facial spa begins with a foot soak followed by scrub with their special ginseng body scrub that’s not for sale and only available at the spa – talk about exclusivity! There’s even an iPhone cable charge in the spa room, super thoughtful. After the facial, which ends off with Sulwhasoo’s very thorough skincare regime, you can prep your tresses and apply their in house Sulwhasoo makeup foundation and blusher at the private makeup room. I also love that their staff speak basic conversational english pretty well. Visit them at 650, Sinsadong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul, South Korea.

In case you’re wondering what’s in the Sulwhasoo facial, these are my notes – I can’t recall the entire skincare regime at the end as it was too extensive!:

Hot feet soak
Ginseng scrub
Facial portion:
Remove makeup
Cleansing oil
Hot towel
White ginseng scrub
Sleeping mask
After facial skincare:
First treatment essence

(3) Soak, spa & massage at women’s only Spa Lei

Lei Spa is a popular women’s only spa, and rated #7 out of 230 spas and wellness places in Seoul on TripAdvisor. As we were fully made-over after our Beaute101 experience and we were a little short of time during our visit to Spa Lei, we didn’t (want to) experience a full soak, sauna and massage which will ruin our hair and makeup, lol. We did however enjoy a drink and hot feet soak at both their outdoor and indoor foot spa. While their staff speak very limited english, I was very impressed with their 3 floors of facilities ranging from saunas, spa, massage, sleeping rooms, TV rooms, outdoor terrace, cafe, nails services and more – I can imagine it’s a place to hang out with my girlfriends for a whole day just doing sauna, spa, massage, meals, nails and more. For as little as 2000won an hour, it’s no wonder Spa Lei is a hit with both local and tourists alike. Do note that privacy is a huge concern, so you will need to keep your phones in the locker as no phones are allowed in the spa.spa-lei-women-only-spa-in-korea-beauty-wellness-must-go-review-enabalista_0000 spa-lei-women-only-spa-in-korea-beauty-wellness-must-go-review-enabalista_0001 spa-lei-women-only-spa-in-korea-beauty-wellness-must-go-review-enabalista_0002 spa-lei-women-only-spa-in-korea-beauty-wellness-must-go-review-enabalista_0003 spa-lei-women-only-spa-in-korea-beauty-wellness-must-go-review-enabalista_0004 spa-lei-women-only-spa-in-korea-beauty-wellness-must-go-review-enabalista_0006

(4) Skincare and Makeup Shopping at Myeong Dong

If you count yourself a K-beauty lover, no trip to Korea would be complete without visiting Myeong Dong where there’s an endless supply and promotion of all things Korean skincare and makeup. If you’re a fan of new skincare brands, then you must pay a visit to Olive Young who stocks brands that are more under the radar before they are established enough to have their owns stores, such as CNP, WakeWake and ElishaCoy. If you’re like me and a fan of established skincare and makeup brands such as Laneige, EtudeHouse, Clio & TheFaceshop, then it’s best to plan your trip to coincide with Korea’s sales season which is start of October and the next one would be early next year, visit Visit Korea website or Korea Grand Sale website for updates. If you’re planning to buy in bulk, my local friend suggests visiting Duty Free at Lotte Mall for really awesome bulk discounts.

Also, no street shopping is complete without street snacks!I will be writing a separate article on recommended Korean food spots, but thought I should add this in as well. Speaking of street snacks, On my first night in Korea, I’d met up with my friend, Livia for Chimac dinner. Livia works at Charis and she gifted me with a Klairs Mochi Bb cushion, a lightweight foundation – you can get it from my Charis online store here~  Also, I have to mention that you can get lots of awesome Korean snacks at Big Mart at Myeong Dong, opens till 12am!

Second night at Myeong Dong (we were there most nights since it was a stone throw away from our hotel!):myeong-dong-street-shopping-korea-beauty-wellness-must-go-review-enabalista_0005 myeong-dong-street-shopping-korea-beauty-wellness-must-go-review-enabalista_0006 myeong-dong-street-shopping-korea-beauty-wellness-must-go-review-enabalista_0007 myeong-dong-street-shopping-korea-beauty-wellness-must-go-review-enabalista_0008 myeong-dong-street-shopping-korea-beauty-wellness-must-go-review-enabalista_0010 myeong-dong-street-shopping-korea-beauty-wellness-must-go-review-enabalista_0011 myeong-dong-street-shopping-korea-beauty-wellness-must-go-review-enabalista_0012 myeong-dong-street-shopping-korea-beauty-wellness-must-go-review-enabalista_0013

I also recommend staying at Lotte City Myeongdong Hotel which is a 10 minutes walk away from Myeong Dong shopping streets. A relatively new hotel with impeccable and friendly staff service, good breakfast spread, comfortable bedroom and great housekeeping service.

Apart from Myeong Dong, I also recommend paying a visit to Gangnam where you’ll find Style Nanda and many shop fronts with lovely visual merchandising in their windows and having a cuppa coffee at Coffeesmith, just to people watch – the dudes are particularly handsome there, haha.

Style Nanda store:

If you have more time, you should also check out Hongdae where there’s more Korean makeup and skincare shops (no surprises, LOL) and more street fashion!

Cap shopping:hongdae-street-shopping-korea-beauty-wellness-must-go-review-enabalista_0000

Walked into Labiotte for their wine lipsticks!


Got one of these lipsticks, which is a lovely coral and hydrating formula:hongdae-street-shopping-korea-beauty-wellness-must-go-review-enabalista_0004

Was super tempted to get this, but would be too creamy/shimmery/oily for SG’s humid weather, so I did not – but if I was staying in Korea would go for this!:hongdae-street-shopping-korea-beauty-wellness-must-go-review-enabalista_0007 hongdae-street-shopping-korea-beauty-wellness-must-go-review-enabalista_0011Also, Chuu official has nice lip tints!hongdae-street-shopping-korea-beauty-wellness-must-go-review-enabalista_0010

(5) Wellness Treatment at KwangDong Oriental Hospital

Have I mentioned that we’ve been treated to only the best in Korea during our trip? The same can be said of our visit to KwangDong Oriental Hospital – we were there on a Friday morning at 9.30am and there were already customers at the counters paying for their oriental medicine dosage/satchets after their check ups. My wellness session with KwangDong Oriental Hospital started with registration, followed by consultation with the doctor, interpreted by a very eloquent lady named Jenny – the doctor then administered my virgin acupuncture experience (pretty painless in fact) on my stiff shoulders and aching calves followed by a cold stone facial spa and hot herbal foot pack – it was an incredible and unique experience to have a cold and hot sensation simultaneously on the opposing ends of my body. I love my experience at KwangDong Oriental Hospital and hope to bring my parents there some day.

(6) Relaxing Spa Session at Herb Island

Last but not the least, if you’re a fan of whimsical European style, I recommend visiting Herb Island and experiencing the Spa session after lunch and staying until the evening when the place is lit in the night. The Spa session starts off with tea and registration followed by a foot soak, a hot pack experience while laying on a cloth over dried hay (I imagine that’s how Jesus felt when he was a baby in a manger, lol) and ending off with massage (choice of back or feet, I picked feet). Also, the shops are super pretty, if you’re a fan of aromatic oil, scents and tea, it’s a place you can stock up on supplies!
