First and foremost, let me  take this chance to wish my Mother, the greatest Mum on earth, a HAPPY BIRTHDAY! May Mum be blessed with longevity. Although she can be very irritating and a pain sometimes, well most mothers are anyway so i am lucky i have a really good one. HAHA!IMG_20140802_8 She is the strongest woman ever, bringing me and my Sister up and loving us unconditionally. 🙂 I have lost my patience towards her many times and although i have been trying to be better, i still fail time to time.
However, she has never for once hated me for that, I am very blessed to have a Mum that loves me so much, and i am also blessed that when problem arises, sister and John are there to help calm me down.
Gonna rush home after some unhappy event (i will update on that soon) for cake cutting and mini celebration.
We celebrated last weekend at Rendevous Hotel with the relatives already, tonight is the actual day of my Mum’s Birthie and thus Sis and i would want to have cake with her. (her fav Mao Shan Wang flavor!)

Ok, anyway, i guess it is kinda overdue for my review for Bio-essence Tanaka White. I better get it done before i am so packed again.
Sponsored IMG_20140806_2 So, i received 2 items the other day and although i am taking longer than usual to submit this review, i believe it is for a better cause too. I do not want to start using something for a few days and give my verdict after just that few days. The longer period of time i use the product, the more i can experience and understand what the product can do. Processed with VSCOcam with m5 preset As you can see from the packaging, on your left, it is the Bio-essence Tanaka White Double Whitening Day Cream SPF20 ($29.80 / 50g ) and on the right, it is the  Bio-essence Tanaka White 4x Intensive White Serum ($45.80 / 30ml). I can’t wait to  try out the products the moment i got them as i am a Bio-essence user too (Bio-essence V  face cream). After cleansing, i apply the Bio-essence Tanaka White 4x Intensive White Serum and as instructed on the packaging, i apply another layer over areas with dark spots & freckles.

Oh man, those freaking spots and freckles, they are my biggest enemies. My skin is generally good and will be better without those spots. Tsk.

Well, i do not usually care much about the ingredients but it is good to know from time to time.

So these are what is inside the Serum: Tanaka Extract™, Tranexamic Acid, Alpha-Arbutin (9X more Alpha-Arbutin (9X more effective than Beta-Arbutin in skin whitening) , Kojic Acid, Bio Energy Fluid

For this 4X Instensive White Serum, it promises to fight Darkness on Outside, Work Fairness from Within and it claims the following benefits: Effectively lighten existing pigments and spots Block tyrosinase and inhibits the production of melanin to prevent dark spots and reduce darkening after UV exposure Even out skin tone, whiten & brighten complexion Moisturizes and cools skin Result: Skin exudes radiance, for a smooth, fair & healthy looking complexion. Skin’s fairness intensifies for flawless fair skin which glows from within.

My Conclusion? Firstly, this is how it looks like (right): Processed with VSCOcam with f2 presetI might be clumsy but honestly, i feel this packaging isnt much of my liking because it turned into some fix and match thingy after a min or 2 after i was trying to see how the dispenser actually work. Not very user friendly in my opinion. Processed with VSCOcam with a4 preset Processed with VSCOcam with a4 presetWell the picture says it all, it works in a way which you have to press the top part of the rubber and let the serum flow out when release pressing. Eh…really not very nice for face serum i reckon. Ear drops maybe? IMG_20140806_5 So this is taken after i applied the serum, pictures is not edited not filtered. I like the texture of the serum though. It is not too sticky, but it gives a very refreshing watery and dewy feeling to the skin. After which, i proceed with my usual toner and moisturizer. Overall, i am quite satisfied with the serum and the result it brings, although it is not instant result i am talking about. I like how the dewy serum feels on the skin, it makes my face feel very moisturized and i have to admit that the glow that comes from within, is definitely there. I also tried the Bio-essence Tanaka White Double Whitening Day Cream SPF20 in the mornings before i head to work. I gotta admit i love the product very much because it really keeps my skin very very hydrated while protecting it from UV rays. I have another SPF cream that i am using which i also fancy too but i find it a little (just a littler) drier than this. However, some might find this product oily or sticky. As i put on make up only around noon, wheareas the SPF20 cream is on for hours, it does not really fade away, instead, it makes putting on make up easier for me. (in my opinion) The product promises to visibly reduces dark spots and evens out skin tone and this is what it contains: Tanaka Extract™, Hyaluronic Acid, Tranexamic Acid, Pomelo extract, minerals The benefits it brings as according to product:SPF20 to protect against harmful UV rays

  1. Tanaka Extract™ shields skin from external pollutants, keeps skin cool and moisturized under hot weather
  2. Contains Tranexamic Acid that helps to significantly brighten and even out skin tone
  3. Provides skin with trace mineral elements and precious herbal extracts such as ginseng, angelica and gingko
  4. Lightens and prevents freckles, dark spots and pigmentation

For these 2 products, i am generally very satisfied because i honestly love products  that feels light and dewy on my face. However, it might be a little pricey compared to the other products of the same range in the market. If there is anything i dislike about the product, it will be the packaging of the Serum. I would recommend my friends to try out though. 🙂 IMG_20140806_7

IMG_20140806_6The above 2 pictures ( me in black) are not edited nor filtered. I did not have any make up on besides drawing my brows, pictures was taken after using the Bio essence Tanaka White 4X Intensive white serum and SPF20 Cream. Pictures are taken under normal room light.

So, anyway, there are so much to update and i have to go and do some work right now, pictures shall do the work yes? 🙂

IMG_20140725_1 IMG_20140726_1 IMG_20140805_1Like super alot of selfies. Yah i know, age is catching up and selfies technically should be left for the younger ones but really, i like selfies. LOL!

IMG_20140731_1

This 1 is worse, it looks like some kind of ad. HAHA, actually this was taken specially for the Review for Bio-essence Tanaka white range.  Like i said, the product is really not bad.

IMG_20140728_1Random #carparkootd shot. The BF is getting better at taking pics (only when he has the patience to, tsk)

IMG_20140728_2The Sis chopped off her hair. I think it suits her though.

IMG_20140801_10Some random shot during 1 of the weekend dinner night out. I am gonna blog about the dinner place very soon because they serve really good Pork and is quite affordable (no GST nor service charge) in my opinion. (coming from some1 that does not fancy Pork)

Oh,  that is my bare face, eyebrows not drawn, hair clipped up like an auntie. Wana say thanks to Aunt for the cute VS pouch. 🙂

Food was really not bad, i would rate it 7.5/10. The spread is quite ok but it will be better if there is more variety. However, the pricing is totally justifiable.

Tried this DVD rental machine the other night with Johnnie. Not too bad, just lack of variety of shows. Also, 1 of the discs can’t work – bummer. Wasted my $1.40 but if you are a new user, the first disc on the  first night is FOC. I know people download shows nowadays and thus it is quite fun to try the oldschool way of renting shows. Actually, it was just my problem with the internet connection and thus i can’t really use internet at home now. LOL. Bummer. IMG_20140806_9

20140723_200309

20140723_200258I must really give credit to OLD TOWN at East Coast Park. Look at the above, the pictures are taken before we touch a single piece of food on the plate. Overwhelmed with hunger, we have no choice but to gobble these crap down. Quantity, i have nothing to say as you can already see  that the bread is twice as big as the chicken chop and the cheese is ard 1/8 of the saucer.

We already waited 1/2 hr for the above and really do not want to wait for another 30mins for nother plate of crap. If i were not that hungry, bitchpls, i would def make a request to change the plate of…

I am not a spoilt brat but i paid and get shit service n this insulting plate of  ???? Sighzzz

Anyway, on a happier note. LOVEIGE has launched the latest collection, you might want to dropby and  take a look. The collection this time is really versatile and prettayyyyy. I included some pics for you, but you may head to http://www.loveige.com to look at the measurements and etc!

Oh, did i forget to include that the clothing are retailing at really affordable pocket friendly prices. Totally justifiable, quality is amazingly thick and good compared to some other shops out there.

IMG_20140801_8 IMG_20140801_5 porUpcoming, this Porcelaine shift dress fits UK4 – UK12. I am a UK8 – UK10 (for H&M) and thus it looks fitting on me. It will be looser on a smaller girl and fitting on  the curvy ones (UK 10 – 12). Both looks awesome in my opinion. Very Pretty prints and made of quality neoprene material that is rather cooling.

Beauty comes in a package – KISS SKINCARE SG & LOVEIGE

Hola folks!

IMG_20140628_1If you notice that i have been more active after  the long hiatus, yeap i am really trying to share as much as i can. Even if it means  that i cant share much about the updates of my life (not like you will be interested anyway because it is always the same old things that is happening.) i would still want  to pen  down on  the products i used and the results they bring.

Reason being, i am the infamous blur sotong. I want to be able to record down what i have used before, where i have eaten before and etc so i will remember in the future. My blog is also a reference for myself since there are so many products in this world, so much food and so many eateries that we patronized. Penning them down helps me to make easier choices in future. Yes, not only blur, i am VERY lazy too.

My blog is known for being honest, even when it comes to sponsored items. As what i mentioned before, because i do not rely on blogging for a living, i want to be credible when it comes to reviews, thus i am able to write what i want to. But i have to emphasize that everyone’s preference is subjective, so whatever that works or does not work for me, might not be doing the same for you ok?

After the sad review about my eyelash extension yesterday (or the day before ah?), today’s review will be better and happier. Haha!

Ok, first and foremost, this review is considered as sponsored, i did not buy the item. But i shall just be honest about the item.

We are looking at the most raved about brand today – KISS Skincare. Recently, i saw plenty of bloggers writing about this product. To be honest, i am very skeptical when it comes to skincare products being advertised crazily by bloggers. No offence to any one of them but very rarely you will read a negative post from them isnt it?

So anyway, i received the bottle of KISS SKINCARE Whitening Collagen Mask 2 weeks back.

LOGO KISSSkincare Update 19-11-13

I hafta admit, despite being skeptical, the packaging kinda got me. It just look so pretty. I am not a pink person but somehow, the box and the way it is packaged really caught my attention.

Firstly, a mandatory introduction :

KISS Skincare’s Whitening Collagen Mask is a product of Thailand and is already one of the BEST SELLERS for whitening collagen cream mask. It is co-founded and recommended by Dr Atom of Atom Clinic in Thailand, a famous celebrity doctor known for his celebrity and super model clientèle.
“KISS Skincare Singapore is a local based e-store.They are the Authorizer Sole Distributor for KISS Whitening Collagen Cream mask.
The FIRST in Singapore to present to you the BEST seller KISS Whitening Collagen Cream Mask in Thailand.”

Certified by TFDA (Food and Drug Administration Thailand)
 Certified GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice)

kiss

The KISS Skincare Whitening Collagen Cream Mask (SGD $58)
“.. an overnight concentration collagen cream mask that diminishes the appearance of pores, supports natural nourishment, exfoliates and addresses impurities”
Key points:
– 100% natural ingredients with no trace of steroids or mercury
(Therefore, it is suitable for all skin types, including those with oily and sensitive skin!)
– Formulated with collagen extract, alpha arbutin, vitamin C+ and natural extracts
– Concentrated collagen in mask acts as a regenerative agent to renew your skin cells, thereby making you look younger and more vibrant
– Whitening effect
– Reduces oil secretion
– Gives you a smoother, whiter looking skin
The mask cream is meant for overnight application. It comes in a vacuum cap container.
Well, i believe many of you will be delighted to know this because it definitely helps to ensure that the cream is kept away from the environmental air, thereby keeping it fresh.
IMG_20140629_1No Make Up, No Fliter, No Edit.
If you are a regular reader, you would have known by now that whenever i am reviewing skincare product, i do not alter my pictures to show the results better.
So, the usual, i cleanse, i put my toner and i applied the Kiss Skincare Overnight Mask Cream. I like it that the pump allows users to only dispense what they need. I tend to waste cream as i tend to ‘dig’ and ‘squeeze’ more than what is needed. However, not guilty this time as the pump is a savior for people like me.
This is how my skin looks after the application. Freckles are ugly, so ignore them. Haha.
20140629_231659Total raw pics, both pictures not edited.

The cream has a nice and mild fragrance, i love how it smell (frankly, i cannot stand those chemical smell even if it is very sweet and fragrant)
Upon applying, it glides on my face smoothly and after applying, there is no tingling sensation (i usually get the tingling sensation everytime i use a new cream on my face)
It is considered average for the level of stickiness. It is not very sticky and after half an hour, it is completely ‘smooth’ and kinda ‘dry’ off from my skin. Probably, the absorbency of the product is good, product was in my skin and the pillow was clean the whole night. Haha.
However, i find it a tad ‘dry’ for me. Not sure if it is due to my skin nature (i have dry skin).
Okay, so i woke up and cleanse it off, still feeling very fresh after the cleansing. Face feel smooth, perhaps that’s the collagen part that is working? As for whitening, it does not really whiten me which  i am really relieved. I really do not fancy a piece of white face to go with a not so white body. The face felt ‘fresher’ after the wash.
Overall, i would say  that this product is worth investing (if you calculate, lol) Although $58 is not extremely cheap for a 30ml tub of cream. The amount needed for the face is not alot, the pump does help alot in saving and you only need to use this product 2 times a week! Meaning, you only pump 4 times a week if you need 2 pumps each time.
Quite worth it for an overnight mask cream isnt it?
logo
Anyway, to make this review even more appetizing. Aspiring Singapore Online Fashion Store LOVEIGE is having a tie up with KISS SKINCARE this July and they are promising the first 5 customers a tub of the Whitening Collagen Mask Cream each with any purchase.
Yeap, ANY PURCHASE! Which also means there is no minimum spending at all.  Which also means that you can choose  to buy one of their sales items and get a tub of Kiss Skincare Whitening Collagen (worht $58) for free!
Despite saying that, LOVEIGE is not compromising on their quality. If you have not already knew, each and every piece of apparel  from LOVEIGE is handpicked and exported with careful consideration. Different real life models will try on the various sizes of every design to make sure that the measurements provided are accurate.

Vdates End Jul ’13

IMG_20130730_9Hi`

It has been sometime since the last update. As i get busier, i tend to forget most of what happened. Thus Vdates are gradually full of pictures.

I am back to work today after taking off for yesterday. Cant help feeling extremely Tired and Sleepy.

In fact, i am dozing off while typing this. Had fun during the Staycation with my Family for Mum’s Birthie (more on that again) and now, i m missing every moment of it, even the bickering sessions. Oh God, bring me back to 2 days ago. 😦

Alright, that is so not happening, thus i will start and end briefly on the updates.

Went to the famous E-commerce shop MDS collections’ physical shop last week at Raffles Chevron to collect 1 of the tops i bought.
It was the Orange top that i posted for sale previously, it is sold already anyway.

Frankly, i always have the impression that MDS is making it big and all but i did not particularly like shopping with them since sometime back. Firstly, i have to admit that the pricing does not really justify the quality. No offence but there are many other shops selling nicer items, of nicer quality out there. Even if is not nicer, there are definitely items that can be compared.

mdslogosquared_2Image credits :https://twitter.com/mdscollections

However, i wouldnt mind to shop with them once in a blue moon if only the attitude and services of their staff is better and nicer than what i experienced recently.

I knew all along that their service is not extremely good but i brushed myself off and told myself that it is ok as long as i get what i wanted.
But the last experience i had last week at Raffles Chevron convinced me otherwise.

Well, i am not here to judge nor to sabotage anybody or any shop. If you read this blog regularly, you would have known that i like to share my experiences. Whether it is a simple skincare review or a hair cut experience, i will share the good and bad.

Also, i will make no reservations in sharing my Personal views/opinions and experiences with all Honesty. For eg. I wouldnt filter any pictures in my skincare reviews because i always believe that a real and sincere review does not requires that though many others prefer looking at fake pictures with cutesy stickers.

Thus after all the justification i made for myself, i am writing how dissatisfied i am towards MDS collections. Yes i know that the shop is making it big, if not they wouldnt have physical shops besides their e-commerce shop. Of course , i am also aware that they have been around for sometime.

However, what irks me is how arrogant the brand starts to get, after they make it big.

I couldnt really remember the incidents in the past and thus i am letting it go. I will just mention the last experience from last week.
The moment i entered the shop, there was no greeting of any sort but i am fine because i aint a sucker for such attention. It is also fine that the sales person allow us to wander around on our own as i prefer that to the frustrating aggressive promoters.

I guess what really frustrated me was  during my payment for my item. I took out my receipt to collect my item, as i made payment online previously.
I was being the usual me, saying Hi with a smile and i told the lady at the cashier that i am making my collection.

She did not even look at me and she took the receipt from me. She then signaled to her colleague and her colleague came over and searched for my item in their cupboard. To be honest, i was already pissed at that because the very basic of a business is courtesy and well mannered service and that includes eye contact and a simple Hi.

However, there was Zero interaction, no smiles and no greetings from the MDS staff.

Thereafter, the colleague threw my bag of item on the table and walked off. I signed to acknowledged the item and throughout the whole procedure, there was nothing said. After collecting the item, i said  Thanks and was expecting at least a nod.

And you probably knew what happened, both ladies working in the shop turned their back towards me and there wasnt even a simple “THANKS”

INSTEAD, as a customer, i have to thank them for attending to me. 

Honestly, this turned me off big time, but I thought it was because i was wearing like crap that day and thus the hostile treatment.
Because as you might already knew, if you wear like crap and you try entering big names like “CHAN**”, “PRAD*” or” LOUIS Something” in places like HK or even here in SG, you might be despised and the sales person might not entertain you nor serve you.

I thought that is really bad because good service is simply NOT like that.  But anyway, we are talking about MDS here, a local home grown successful brand, that has yet to become another Chanel.

Thus i hang around for awhile more to observe if  the arrogant sales persons entertain the other ladies who were better dressed. To my dismay, NOPE. They were not being served. Even the ones paying at the counter experienced what i experienced. Well, i am not sure about others, maybe there are people who are not as anal as i am when it comes to service, thus they are fine but for myself, i do not compromise to such quality of service.

There are countless e-commerce shops in Sg and overseas. There are bigger names around that provides excellent services. Frankly, i used  to shop with Love Bonito before they were so big, before they are known as Love Bonito. They were Bonito Chico previously and i used to shop with them frequently back then. The pricing were more justifiable back then but as they revamped and all, i personally find  that their designs changed (more common and less attractive) and the quality of their clothes are not as good as what was raved about by many many people. Thus i really do not find it as worthwhile to get apparels from them now. Of course, this is my personal opinion.

However, i still buy a few items from them now and then because honestly, there are still nice stuff to look at, their service has never drop despite anything. Their services and attitude towards customers are still comparable to the past which they first started and that is really a relief to consumers like us.

Look, i am not a stuck up princess that needs alot of TLC when it comes to shopping. I basically just hope for the basic needs of manners to be met. I have zero tolerance for bad service because for every cent i pay, i am paying not only for the item  but also the services. It is also very disgusting to encounter rude services from big names that are giving hostile services now after they have gained the fame and ‘status’.

Thus after saying so much, i regrettably confirmed that i will never shop with MDS collections again.

I honestly forgot about the previous incidents, if i am not wrong, it should be some email inquiries i made which were replied in unfriendly manners previously. However, for this incident, even if anyone were to argue that it is not fair to judge since it is only a one time event, i am still not gonna visit the shop again. I think that if 1 out of 2 sales persons in the shop  is rude, we can excuse the fact that every1 has bad mood now and then. But no, if the entire shop is ill mannered, it has something to do with its management. Its management has to make sure that their staff are properly trained because these people represent their Brand and  they are the most important people as they are the front line warriors, making interactions and building r/s with customers.

Of course, having said that, they might not be bothered as only 1 customer made such statements now (assuming there isnt anymore anal feedbacks other than me)
But i dont really care what action they will (or will not) take because i have said my piece and made a decision anyway.

This post is still on my updates but since i mentioned about shopping, might as well just include this part.

And so, i sold the top i got anyway because it didnt fit my chest at all. Terrible. I actually like the top very much but too bad, it didnt fit me.

Went to get brows threading done with my baby Sis on Fri and we both love our new brows now!  Not particularly in love with the Thick Korean brows but we wanted something more natural and of course, the straighter ones. We are satisfied and thank you Strip for the good services!

IMG_20130721_185819Went to Dr Robi‘s session at Heart of God Church.
My 1st time to the church, It is relatively smaller than CHC and the members are younger.
However, as much as i am not used to it, the presence of God is strong.
Praise the Lord!
It was a wonderful experience and thank you HOG for inviting Dr Robi.

Find out more about Dr Robi HERE. He is awesome and you will love all his messages!

This morning, my friend was asking me why is it that i appear slimmer in a pic and from the tone,
i can tell it is a doubt and not a question.
To be honest, i replied my friend and also would love to say, i did not edit the picture.
I lost some flabs because i have been working hard in the Gym.
Moreover, that picture was really taken in a better angle.

Sometimes, people doubt you because they themselves can never put in effort in doing what you are doing.
Thus it makes them feel better by doubting you and putting you down, in the hope that your are really like them.

You do not have to care about  those doubts, you know you are not like what they make you to be.
For me, i just know it.
I know my efforts are not wasted.
