Whitening Supplements [IDS Lyco-White / Gluta Pancea]

0 No tags Permalink

Brows: Etude House Drawing Eyebrow Duo, Eyes: Urban Decay Naked Heat palette, Cheeks: 3CE #Peach Crush, Lips: Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer

I’m naturally tanned (as you can probably tell by now) which is a total opposite from my mum. Over the years, I’ve tried quite a number of whitening skincare products. Some of them actually do work, but I soon realised that they introduced different skin tones between my face and body. *gasp*

I’ve tried whitening body lotion too, but it doesn’t work as well. You might wonder why didn’t I use those whitening skincare products that were meant for face, on my body too?

Duh. You think I’m Jamie Chua or Datok meh? 🤷🏻‍♀️

I wish I could print earn money that fast too. Not forgetting the amount of effort needed to applying on all over (bigger surface areasssss get it?). 💰🌲

Every morning I pop just a couple before my breakfast! 🍽

So I turned to supplements. 💊

The rationale was instead of applying products merely on the surface of my skin,  supplements work inside-out rather than vice-versa (if it works lah)? Moreover, it’s definitely faster and less clumsy in application as compared to external products.

I did my research by comparing the top recommended brands online and in this day and age, who could forget the “digital word-of-mouth”. I then shortlisted the candidates to these 2 brands – IDS Lyco-White (local Singapore brand) and Gluta Pancea (product of Thailand).

Best Massage Places In Johor Bahru, Malaysia [Updated June 2017]

24 No tags Permalink

Massage is something that I totally couldn’t appreciate when I was “young”. It’s soooo ticklish~~ I ended up enduring my giggles until I burst into laugher, influencing the masseuse too. Then, I started Events & Modelling on a full time basis, with long hours on killer heels – especially those 5″ stilettos during tradeshows, runways, etc. ?

Your back becomes so sore, and your feet become so numb until you can’t feel them anymore. FML seriously. 真的会死人 aka really can die. ?

That’s when I started my massage journey wherever I went. I travelled to Malaysia more frequently starting about a year back, and I started trying out various different massage parlours there too.

Google – like what everyone does nowadays to search for the best massage places in Johor Bahru, Malaysia. From blog reviews to TripAdvisor to random websites, I realised the places were more or less the same. It’s just as if someone went and reviewed the place online, then everyone else just followed and reviewed the same few places over and over again. ?

Don’t get me wrong – Some* of the massage parlours reviews are pretty decent. Some were pretty bad but crazily raved making me doubt those people who wrote the post if they ever had a decent massage in their life.

Most of these places that were highly reviewed had 1 thing in common when I personally tried them – the masseuses skills were not consistent?

So after trying out what the Internet has to offer, I started exploring random massage places and also by asking the locals – such as coffeeshop aunties, workshop/carwash uncles, etc.

In this post, I will talk about my favourite massage places that I go to frequently in Johor Bahru, Malaysia that is really good. This meant places that I had patronised at least 3 times or more with consistently good service and more importantly, good massage skills. I had enough of lousy massage making more tired and sore than ever.

… Worse still, bruises the next day (Simi sai lo. Pay to suffer). ?

Kohepets x YandaoTheSpitz

0 No tags Permalink

Not too long ago, I was actually shopping at one of the well-known pet “megamarts” in Singapore with my little Japanese Spitz, Yandao, like most other fur-parents. No doubt the shopping part was fun, but alas, the carrying of dog food, together with huge, bulky accessories proved really painful… especially when you’re not driving!

Enter Kohepets

I came to know about them just a few days back, and wow, did they have the largest inventory I’ve even seen in an online pet store.

True, they’re not the *only* online pet store in Singapore, but I dare say they have the widest variety of products and arguably amazing prices. Plus, their free delivery quota is only $60!! I don’t really think its feasible for a pet store to ask for a minimum of $200 unless you’re stocking up daily staples such as food(kibbles?) and pee-pads(if your little furry ones do it indoors), etc.

You know especially… on some of the days when you’re a good mood to spend a little extra cash out of the sudden or feel like getting little surprise for your furkid(s). Or else it’s kinda a challenge to “hit” when you’re just trying some stuffs. ?

Those of you who know me would actually know that I *love* shopping – but hate all the hassle of carrying loads of stuff back home. I mean, don’t we all?

..and, the best part was, they’re *all* about the freebies. You know how it gets awkward at the pet shop counter when you have to point and ask for a specific “free” item? Not anymore! There’s basically a whole section of freebies which you can grab all you want from in Kohepets, too!

I placed my order, and waited 2 days... and as promised, a package with enough goodies to spoil Yandao for a while arrived!

Perfect Eyesight w/Clearvision [Trans-epiLASIK Aftercare]

25 No tags Permalink

IMG_2430

Hi everybody~~~? Here is a photo of me! Just that, this time round with no contact lenses to enhance my eyes because I’ve perfect eyesight now. *Flips hair* ?

I’ve received many questions from y’all (including my friends) and the very top concerns that I’ve been receiving are;

Can you see immediately after the Trans-epiLASIK surgery?

Yes, you can… but only about 70% – Your vision would be similar to as if you’ve just stepped-out from a cold place (a bit foggy). The first 3 days after I done my Trans-epiLASIK, my eyesight fluctuates like mad – one moment it’s super clear, the next moment I couldn’t even read what’s on my handphone screen despite putting it almost infront of me.

The 3rd day onwards, My vision remained pretty stable (occasionally a bit blur, but it went off after blinking several times).

The reason was due to that the eye cells were still moving around, thus the fluctuation. Some might takes a few months for their eyesight to stable down. SOME.

How high is your degree/astigmatism? Is it fully corrected?

Can’t really remember my astigmatism, but it’s pretty high if I didn’t remember wrongly. My degree is about 700 for both eyes. Like most people, I do have the concern of under-correcting/over-correcting, especially when there’s a saying that the higher your degree, the harder it is to achieve perfect eyesight.

That’s why it’s EXTREMELY important to choose the right doctor and also the one that you feel safe and comfortable with. Dr. Tony Ho from Clearvision is not only a well-recognised and respected figure in the Singapore refractive surgery arena, but also has over 25 years of specialty experience.

Thanks to Dr. Tony that I achieved something that I never dreamt of – PERFECT eyesight! ? I’ve posted a chart of my favourite zeros later on in this blogpost. ? There’s still a bit of unnoticeable fluctuation currently as the eye cells still moving.

How do you make your eyes looks bigger without dolly contact lens? Do you feel your eyes looks “dead” or look like it loses its focus (in other words, pak jiao or soulless) after LASIK?

There’re many ways to create the illusion of bigger eyes without dolly contact lenses. To name a few – heavier eye make-up (such as thicker eyeliner), falsies or eyelash extensions.

Nope. Just look at my photo that I have posted above, does my eyes looks “soul-less”?☝? Nope! I feel that my eyes even looks brighter than before!

  1. I did Tran-epiLasik which doesn’t involve any cutting of the corneal flap (“cutting” is the culprit that potentially leads to eye dryness).
  2. Having perfect eyesight now means there’s no need for contact lenses. No matter how highly permeable or “breathable” your contact lenses are, especially during days when you wear contact lens for long hours, you’re bound to experience some sort of dry eyes. After all, there’s a “plastic” covering your eyes from breathing.
  3. Lubricant (for eyes!) Not only refreshes and moisturises your eyes (like what normal eye drops do), but also gives your eyes the watery, shiny, waxy(?) look! It can be used on normal, healthy eyes (why didn’t I find out the existence of such products earlier?! *Hiao mood on aka bimbo mood*)

The eyepatch and shades are included in the Trans-epiLASIK package. Separate cost for the lubricant eyedrops.
