Cafehopping at Holland V with T and Mag :)

Finally met up with Theresa and Magdalene last week, after like one year!  :) Opps, we took a little too long, especially since it is not like any of us is overseas.. Hehe.. Got to know both of them through MFP, although Mag is no longer blogging already~

Met at Holland V for dinner, and we ended up at 4 cafes in total, from 7 to 2am. Crazy much aha! (But we didn’t take any photos at the last 2 places!) And I can’t really remember the taste of the food because we were busy chatting most of the time..
Dinner was at PARK at Holland Village
Truffle fries!! Yay I like <3

Mag’s: Crepe with smoked salmon

T’s: Truffled Mac & Cheese

All our food! They keep ostracising me for using Samsung phone while we were taking photos of out food, Samsung also good what….

Ice cream at Sunday Folks
They closed the shop before they finish clearing the people in the reservation list (we reached before the closing time and we were like waiting for our turn right outside the shop), their service staffs were not apologetic at all, and my vanilla ice cream is not nice. All the popular flavors are sold out and because they are supposed to be “closed”, we can’t have waffles too.
20141023_215527
After our ice cream, we ended up at Hatched, and we ordered more food so that we can sit there to chat haha! Truffle fries and chicken wings for this stop, we are super pig right? Hahahaha. Hatched’s service was so much better anyway!!! (Y) And after Hatched closed, we were thirsty and headed to our fourth stop! Went to Xin Wang Hong Kong Cafe for drinks, since it will be opened until 2am haha…..
A super tiring and bloated night, but glad that we can talk about almost anything under the sun!! Last photo with them, can’t wait to meet them for Karaoke next! ♥

Museum of Horrors V: The Relic

As you know, Halloween is coming!!! Woooooo~ Actually I don’t celebrate Halloween in previous years, but this year, I’ve been to 2 Halloween attractions! Universal Studios Singapore Halloween Horror Nights 2014 (USS HHN 4) as well as *SCAPE’s Museum of Horrors V: The Relic!
Went to *SCAPE last Friday with the boy for MOH 5! It is both our first time, so we were pretty excited hehe.. At the courtyard of *SCAPE (the flea area), we already saw a “ghost” hanging on the tree!! I asked the BF to act scared for my photo, he ended up looking very smiley still hor?
IMG_20141024_213622
Anyway, this is the fifth year running for MOH! MOH is like a horror maze at *SCAPE The Ground Theatre which takes about 15minutes to complete. (If you’ve been to HHN, this is kind of like a haunted house in USS!) This year’s MOH is featuring sets such as Revenge of the Doll, The Living Dead and more. There’s also a part where you get to wear 3D glasses and I was pretty awed by the colorful 3D effect!
I find MOH a very good alternative to USS HHN, we don’t have to travel all the way to Sentosa and spend our whole night sweating while queueing for the rides! The queue here is much faster and everything is indoors, meaning there is aircon both when queueing and when in the maze. Also, for MOH, you will go in in groups of 4 (instead of just one long line like at USS) which is must more scarier, and you won’t know when to expect the “ghosts” which is more fun right?
Sorry I didn’t take any photos while in the maze! I brought my camera along but I ended up too busy being scared hehe.. And I guess those of you who wanna go to MOH won’t want spoilers from me right? If I show photos then not fun for you guys anymore!! 
Anyway, here are more details if you’re interested!

Opening Hours:
7pm to 10:30pm (Friday, 24 October to Sunday, 2 November 2014)
7pm to 11:30pm (Halloween, Friday, 31 October 2014 only)
Last entry into the exhibition is 15 minutes before closing time.
Entrance Fees (per entry):
Standard – $20
Bundle of four tickets – S$60
Students with valid Student Pass – $15
Ticketing:
Purchase tickets at Peatix Website (http://moh2014.peatix.com), or in person at
*SCAPE HubQuarters, Customer Service Counter (Level 4) during operating hours

20141025_153605_mr1414267206983_2

It is an oil painting of myself which I’ve just received!

This is the first oil painting of myself ever, and I’m surprised that a painting can look so real, just like a photo graph of myself! I sent in a photo taken when I still had blonde hair to be made into the oil painting.. The oil painting is pretty detailed, I can see my hair strand by strand and all the slightly different tones in my blonde hair, awesome right!

Bellabox Bday Blowout!

This month’s Bellabox is really special, I mean October 2014′s, it is not just any of the previous monthly Bellabox!

20141017_225144_wm
Why?????

Because.... It is Bellabox's third birthday!! Happy Birthday to Bellabox, love you! xoxo 

And also because... I am on the inforcard with a few other beauty bloggers!!!! Special right? Ahahahaha.. (But my eyes very small in the photo opps)
20141019_002719_wm
More about the contents…

Benefit’s fans will be happy to know that there should be at least a Benefit sample in most of the boxes this month! Lucky me actually received 2 Benefit samples, namely Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real! Push Up Liner as well as Benefit Cosmetics Stay Don’t Stray Primer. Lucky me! :D
20141017_225205_wm
Also, there is Creme Simon in my Bellabox too! 1 full-sized item and 2 samples to be exact. I’ve seen beauty bloggers raving about Creme Simon, and finally it is my turn to try out their products. I’ve received the deluxe samples for Creme Universelle which is a body moisturiser as well as their Brightening Detox Restorative Sleeping Mask which is a leave on sleeping mask. Also, I’ve got a full-sized Brightening Detox Multi-Benefits Eye Treatment which retails at S$23, can’t wait to try out this product especially, haven’t been using as eye creams lately!~
20141017_225220_wm
Another favourite of mine is this SpectraBAN Sensitive 30 Sunscreen for sensitive skin! What I’ve received is a 20g sample, which is considerably big for a sample, definitely enough to bring along for overseas trips! I noticed that Bellabox has been constantly putting sunscreens in their boxes for the past few months, which is awesome because I don’t even have to purchase my own sunblock anymore when I have monthly supply of deluxe sample sunscreens hehe!

I attended the grand opening of the world’s largest Etude House flagship store last week, and I LOVE THE PLACE SO SO MUCH!! The whole shop is literally princess-land!! The new flagship store boasts a 2,300-square-feet space inspired by the motif of a Princess Palace.. Although it is huge, it was still mad crowded that day.. So many people loving Etude House! :)

Etude House also invited Pony from Korea (she’s a famous beauty youtuber) to do live makeup demonstrations as well as Xu Bin (a mediacorp artiste) to grace the event. I only caught Pony and I was leaving when Xu Bin arrived..
20141016_182219
Everyone crowding around to look at Pony’s make up demo! She’s really good with the Etude House Play 101 Pencils which can be used a concealor, eyeshadow, eyeliner, blusher, lipstick, etc… You can go youtube to search for her videos!
20141016_181512
Was given some credit to spend at the shop that day, you can imagine how happy I was!

20141016_174635

Here are the capsule machines, just right beside the photobooth!

Apart from those mentioned above, what is even more exciting is that this new flagship store features ETUDE HOUSE’s first-ever makeover studio in Singapore with professional makeup artists available for shoppers to experience a beautiful transformation at any time.
If I ever want to buy any makeup or stuffs from Etude House, I’ll definitely visit this flagship branch hehe! They really have everything a girl will love!~~ They’re located at Wisma Atria #B1-20/21/22, one of the first few stores from Orchard MRT station..

This pretty and irresistable collection are packaged like fairytale books and consists of four different lines – Snow White, Cinderella, Belle and Jasmine. The whole collection include an assortment of BB cream, mascara, blusher, eye shadow and even nail polish, enough to give yourself a princess-y makeover! I will review this collection soon in another blogpost~ You can get all these items separately, but do note that this collection is limited edition and only available at the Wisma Atria flagship store!
20141017_222942_wm
Lastly, what I’ve picked for myself with the credits given.. And I overspent opps! Bite Me Eau De Perfume that smells fresh and citrus-y, Fresh Cherry Tint (which is my favourite and daily lip tint at the moment) in PK001 Cherry Pink which I have not tried before yet, Play Therapy Soft Clay Pack which is an oil-control mask to deal with my oily and pimple-prone skin, and lastly, Surprise Me Essence Concealor which seems pretty good when I tried the tester at the store.
The other items, such as the Etude House cookie and bracelet are media gifts (I think); the Wonder Pore Wow kit and the Princess Sweet Mirror are gift-with-purchase of minimum $50 spending (Yes apply to all shoppers too)!
