22nd Birthday!

This post is kind of late, my birthday was in January.. Ohwell, late but still good (food) memories worth blogging about! :)

Birthday dinner with the family + bf at G7 Sinma Live Seafood Restaurant.. The crabs were really really good although they don't look appetising in my photos at all haha. Downside is that this place is really expensive for a semi-coffeeshop-semi-restaurant place. But go try, their crabs really super nice!!! They are well-known for their frog leg porridge too, but I don't dare to eat frogs so I can't comment on that.

Requested to have pancakes during my birthday date hehe! My prawn and garlic pancakes was good, BF had the Chinese New Year special and it was okay-ish (depends on your tastebud I guess).

Also, we went to prawn! First time for both of us, and it was really fun! It was quite epic when we got our first prawn on the hook. Bf was holding on to the rod with the string swinging around (due to the prawn struggling ) and I was busy screaming because the prawn looks like it is gonna swing towards me, and we both don't know what to do HAHA. Luckily the staff was really nice and he came to teach us what to do. Caught 4 prawns in an hour, not bad for first-timers right? The staff baked the 4 prawns for us and we ate them on the spot. :D

And I was so surprised that I have a brownie-ice cream-cake waiting for me the night before my birthday! Bf's roomies DIY-ed the combination, they sandwiched the ice cream in between 2 layers of brownies, and topped the whole thing with molten chocolate.. Sinful but nice! Too bad I didn't manage to get a nicer photo of it ..

And yay I got a craftaholic bunny from my uni friends! I named the bunny Pinky btw, much to bf's objection LOL. Pinky is really big, she's as tall as my shoulder, bolster size I must say!

I requested for a birthday date #2 after school on the day of my birthday itself, so we randomly went to JEM for dinner. Had Lenas for dinner, and it was okay-ish only. Oh, and their baked cream pasta was too creamy for me, I already have a super high tolerance for creamy food by the way, go challenge it haha!

OOTD: PJ pants

Went out in this slack outfit last weekend :)


Pyjamas pants was trending a little last year, and I finally gotten myself a pair when I was in Bangkok. Oops, a little late, I know..


Nevertheless, it was a good buy, super comfy and matches easily with a plain black spaghetti top. Yay!

Beauty in the Eyes X K-Beauty Products

Beauty in the Eyes is an online store selling affordable and quality beauty products from Korea. Don't we all love k-beauty stuffs?


I love Korean beauty products!! :D


Got two skincare items from them yay, and I'll be reviewing them later in this post~

dsc00033_2_cut

In case you just wanna dive into their store to shop now - click here.

BITE

Their site is very easy to use, all the items are categorised nicely, you can search for your item by brand or by type! They have most of the popular korean brands like Laneige, Missha, Tony Moly, Lioele and more..

BITE2

Also, we all love discounts right? They have some promotions going on, you can get a bundle of two items at a lower price.. I love buying bundles when shopping, because I get more items at a lower price, whee!

BITE3

So what did I get? Lioele multiseaweed gel and Tony Moly Tomatox Magic White Massage Pack!

dsc09836_cut

Lioele multiseaweed gel (S$20.65)


This is a multi functional product that can act as a toner, moisturizer or sleeping mask all in one. Contains 90% concentrated seaweed and other marine extracts, this gel is bursting with vitamins, minerals and amino acids, that help to boost skin resilience, hydration and protect skin from environmental damages and pollutants. With added benefits of CoQ10, collagen and aloe vera, this gel can also help to firm skin, enhance cell regeneration and soothe sensitive skin. That is why it is called ‘youth in a bottle’.

dsc00059_2_ct

The texture is half-jelly and half-liquid, more liquid than any other "gel" products that I own..

It is a pleasure to apply this on my face. The gel is really easy to spread, it feels like water once I start to rub and spread it on my skin. The product is easily absorbed by my skin, and there is no stickiness at all after application. Also, I love the smell of this product!

Here's a tip, put it in the fridge before you use it, I promise you will feel super shiok when applying it haha!

Yay to hydrated and firmer skin! :D

dsc00050_2_cut

Tony Moly Tomatox Magic White Massage Pack (S$17.85)


A multi functional massage pack with tomato extract that has a detox property to clear skin. Contains lemon extract that accelerates collagen synthesis and also whitens and tones skin.  Baicha extract helps calm irritated skin while offering a whitening effect. Houstonia extract is also known as a mysterious herb with 10 kinds of properties of anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-allergenic, whitening, which all contribute to clear radiant skin.


Hehehe this tomato packaging is so cute, mega like! Cute packaging definitely appeals to me, one bonus point before I even use it..

dsc00037_2_cut

This mask is pretty thick and creamy!

Application in progress~~~


I wasn't looking forward to use this product at first, because it is so troublesome! I have to apply it onto my face, massage with fingers for 1-2 minutes (which means I need to wash my hands after this), wait for 5-10 minutes and then wash it off.. But after using it for the first time, I decided the trouble was definitely worth it!

dsc00066_2_cut

It is amazing that my skin became brighter, firmer and more radiant after using this product for just one time. The effects are so unbelieveable! It gave me the kind of confidence boost to go out barefaced, that is how good this product is!


Trust me, go try this product for yourself and you will thank me for introducing this product to you! :)

dsc00069_2_cut

I got both the Lioele multiseaweed gel and Tony Moly Tomatox Magic White Massage Pack from Beauty in the Eyes. They are having bundle promotions for this two items with Laneige and Innisfree items respectively, so do go and check them out! ;)

You may also want to get some other beauty essentials from them, they have many different types of skincare over at their site.

Oh, and there is free local delivery for all purchases above $50! :)

30 Cute Wedding Ideas

I was tasked by MFP's editor to write an article about my dream wedding and here is it!

For me, a wedding seem like a pretty faraway thing, I'm now 22 and still schooling. Also, Singapore's Build-To-Order(BTO) flats take about 3-5 years to complete, not that I applied for one yet, but I guess it will take quite a few more years before I can attend my own wedding hehe.

(I can imagine my BF's friends reading this blog post and telling him that I'm using this post to drop him a big fat hint lol.. But this is nothing of that sort ok?)

Was poking around on google and pinterest, and I found so many cute ideas and photos that I absolutely have to share. Picked 30 of my favourites for this blog post, and they took me a helluva time but I had so much fun sourcing for this blog post! :)
