It’s been a while since I updated you on what’s going on! Sure I can put out a bunch of reviews and how to’s but I don’t mind telling you a little more about what I do when I’m not blogging away so here we go! A few weekends ago when I came back from Japan, Jacob and I decided to have brunch before Church. I haven’t been to Tiong Bahru for a while and Jacob wanted to eat at one of the many cafes there as well. After parking, we stumbled upon the actual Tiong Bahru Plain Vanilla Bakery! It was totally a surprise because the bakery was absolutely beautiful.

Today, I just wanted to tell you about a really cool app I’ve been using lately and loving called SGMalls! I have to admit sometimes in Singapore, we feel like we have nothing to do on the weekends. That usually equates to us going to our local mall and seeing what’s up and especially, what’s on sale! Well SGMalls actually tells you all the sales currently in all the malls in Singapore before you drive over there, plus there are loads of other cool features that I will be showing you in this post. Be warned, this app is totally fitting if you are a shop-a-holic. It’s totally FREE and available on iPhone and Android. Just download it now and I’ll walk —–> Read More

It’s International Women’s Day on March 15 this year and I have an exciting event to announce if you’re interested in celebrating this special occasion with empowering and inspiring women! If you don’t know about Young Women Leadership Connection (YWLC), it’s an engagement platform here in Singapore that is so special because it serves as a mentorship, enrichment, networking and community engagement platform for young women leaders at the university-to-work stage of their lives. This is something I really feel passionate about and I find it amazing that there’s an event for this now! —–> Read More

Hey Everyone,

hihi

I’ve wanted things just like everyone else and I’ve tricked myself into thinking I wouldn’t be happy without it. Maybe it’s that $4,000 bag your friend is sporting, or that trip to the Bahamas or maybe it’s just as simple as getting a job promotion.

Something that I’ve totally learnt growing up is that our wants change over time. Something that we totally want right now may not mean much four years down the line. Things that we thought we needed weren’t actually that important. However an even bigger realisation is that maybe it’s just not our time yet to have —–> Read More

Hello from Taiwan! So here I am in my hotel room on New Years Eve celebrating the last few hours of 2013 in my…pajamas. I’m really not complaining though, there’s really nothing better than a soft hotel bed and I guess it’s how I want to celebrate the end of 2013. I’d have to say at the end of it all, 2013 was a really tough year for me but it was also a year in which I got to experience things that were beyond what I thought would be possible for me. A lot of the year I spent working and at the end of it all, I feel like I finished some final year project I’ve been —–> Read More

I don’t know about you but when I’m stressed out, I always look at pictures of a tropical paradise and they never fail to cheer me up. I even had one as a desktop background for a while. The white sand, the crystal clear water, the true blue sky and well, all it’s missing is..well, me. But just a week ago, I finally got a chance to turn my desktop background into reality when I went on a trip to Boracay with the Gushcloud team! I’ve always imagined Boracay to be some distant island and to be honest, I didn’t even know it was in the Philippines! Super geography noob right here. It was really a wonderful, unique and special trip. I thought I might sum it up into a handy guide for you if ever you’re keen so here’s 7 must do and amazing things to do in —–> Read More

I just wanted to let you know that I’m heading to Boracay tomorrow morning for a couple of days! I can’t believe it. My screensaver tropical island paradise is finally turning into reality. It’ll be my very first time I’m setting foot in the Philippines and I’m so excited. I’m always a late packer. I don’t really like packing actually because you never know if you’re going to miss out something you need so I always end up bringing extra. I tend to procrastinate too, so much so that I decided to do this little blog post before leaving on my beach make-up essentials to pack! FYI —–> Read More

It’s always fun to see your videos grow from at home to being done professionally! So when Clozette contacted me to see if I wanted to make a few videos that represented me and be featured as an SK-II Blogger Ambassador, I was more than thrilled! I managed to film three videos with them:

(1)   Celebrity Inspired Look: Scarlett Johansson
(2)  Neckline Cheat Sheet: Best Accessories To Match Different Necklines
(3)  Bride-To-Be Special: Skincare, Hair & Makeup!

It was really fun to film these videos not only because the camera crew totally beat my at home set-up, but because I really do believe in SK-II products. I often get asked how I make my skin glow like it does and to be honest, it’s totally SK-II so I was very pleased to be one of their blogger ambassadors on —–> Read More

I know it sounds crazy. How can you ever really get excited for the hard times in your life? What on earth would you get excited for. I know it sounds ridiculous but really – from the bottom of my heart – get..excited..for the..hard times. Throw a freakin’ party.

To be honest, probably the hardest point in my life was when I was just about to graduate high school. It was my senior year and when a lot of people were getting excited for college and preparing to jet set to another country – I was pretty down in the dumps. I just broke up with my first boyfriend, I had to —–> Read More

Symmetry is just about the only decent brunch I’ve had in Singapore so far. In fact, it’s a little more than decent, it’s really good guys. I might sound like I’m some pompous food critic but when you’ve lived in land of brunch called Melbourne in Australia for a few years, you’re basically set to accept that it’ll be hard to find a place where coffee isn’t just coffee and eggs aren’t just eggs. If that makes sense at all. After having visited Symmetry a few times, I thought I’d show you around one of my favourite places to have brunch in Singapore.

Symmetry is located at 9 Jalan Kubor, near Arab Street and Haji Lane. I’m not sure if it’s a —–> Read More

One thing I love to do when I have the time is to attend beauty events. You learn a lot about new technologies in beauty, new beauty products and interesting ingredients. In fact, there’s always something new to learn when it comes to make-up, skincare and even hair! I thought why not make this a regular thing on my blog so that you can keep updated too! I get invited to many events nowadays and can only make room for a few, but I guess it means I’ve handpick them for you! Today, I’ll be letting you in on recent Silkyveil, Benefit Cosmetics and ION mall.

I can’t say I don’t have a massive perfume collection, I do. Almost every semester brought me to this one perfume store in Melbourne Central during every exam season and buying a perfume because a stress releaser for me. I guess you could say it wasn’t too healthy for the wallet but I just love smelling good. I think every woman should and the beauty of it is that smell is so personal – not only in scent but also the memories that each perfume carries. Out of my entire collection – you could say three stand out the most. Whenever I open any of these perfumes I’ve chosen today, it brings back a wave of memories. It’s like opening this huge time capsule. I thought it would be fun to show you some of —–> Read More
