Singapore’s First-ever Yuzu Onsen Bath at Yunomori Onsen & Spa

20161123_195926

I finally got a chance to visit Yunomori Onsen & Spa, after hearing about all the positive reviews which they had. Many thanks to Yunamori Onsen & Spa’s invitation for the launching of their yuzu onsen bath. This bath will be available for a limited time only so you gotta come quick before the promotion ends.

Started in early 18th century, this is an authentic experience practiced by the Japanese on the winter solstice day. I will share the benefits of the spa in a bit, but let us first admire the peaceful zen surroundings.

20161123_200048

I love the cozy, relaxing feel of the Yunomori Onsen surroundings which makes one feel calm and peaceful when stepping in.


The soft lighting and tranquil feeling also adds to the overall calmness of my mind as I looked around. It is a real pity that I was unable to look at the interior and experience the spa for myself though, as the group of us decided that it was inconvenient for us to try out the spa on the very day.

Coming back to the Yuzu Onsen Spa, other that warding off winter colds and the common flu, you will see that your skin becomes smoother, more radiant and moisturised. The oil from the yuzu stimulates the circulatory and digestive systems. Containing citrus acids and vitamin C, the onsen will also help to heal chapped skin as well.

For those busy Singaporeans who work long hours, the bath will alleviate body aches and back pains as well as improve blood circulation. It is a good way to relax your body under a good spa and have some girlfriend time together.

I would not be able to comment about the above information as I had never experienced their spa before nor tour their internal facilities within the onsen spa. You would need to change into their robe before you can tour the internal facilities as most of them would also be dressed in the Yukata provided. I hope that when I am able to try out, I’ll be able to provide you to an honest review when the time comes.

We were however, treated to a table of Yuzu inspired dishes.

Yuzu Soda $5+

I love how refreshing the soda is. This drink is perfect for those who have love something sweet and sourish.

20161123_201114

Yuzu Udon $9.80+

Yummy Udon dipped in the bowl of sauce that was given to everyone. Its my first time taking cold udon, despite it being cold the udon was delicious when dipped into the bowl of sauce.

20161123_201236

Japanese Assorted Plate $17.80+

These plate of assorted items had an interesting mix of taste. The chicken was a little tough for our liking but overall the plate had a good variety.

20161123_201501

Chicken Karaage Curry $13.80+

Crispy chicken karaage would never go wrong with anyone. Love its crispness going with the Japanese curry which is suitable even for people who can’t take spicy food.

20161123_205008

Yuzu Sorbet $4.50+

Tangy and slightly on the sourish side, it is perfect to end off your dishes with the sorbet to wash off the different taste you have in your mouth.

The zoo is a very nice place to spend some quality time together especially if you are an animal lover like us, so we’re really looking forward to this run.

zoo1

Safari Zoo Run was conceived to commemorate Singapore Zoo’s famous matriarch and one of Singapore’s most loved animal personalities —Ah Meng the Sumatran orangutan, who died of old age in February 2008.

ahmeng1

[Ah Meng was my favourite character in the zoo, even after she passed on because of my early memories as a child. We love seeing “breakfast with Ah Meng” and she always appears friendly with so much warmness, and charm.  These animals are also very human-like, therefore they connect the best with me. ]

The objectives of this run are to encourage family bonding and raise awareness on wildlife conservation.Next year (2017), we shall all run for wildlife as the run focuses on raising awareness for wildlife conservation. Each of these animal icon team supports an endangered wildlife species that Singapore Zoo would like to raise awareness for. Choose an animal team to support and help raise awareness for.

There are 4 animal icons namely: –
1. Ah Meng – Orangutan
2. Chawang – Asian Elephant
3. Canola – Manatee
4. Sunny – Hornbill

I guess by now you know that I will be supporting Team Ah Meng because of the love I have for orangutans.

BeautyHope Singapore celebrates her 9th Year Anniversary

On the 19th November 2016, I was invited to BeautyHope Singapore’s 9th Anniversary. I have visited them for my facial and I am quite impressed with the skills of their beautician. You can read about my experience here, doing the PTD Magic Treatment if you are interested.

Such lovely balloons! Love the floating effect which was created with them.

dsc_0256
Look at everyone crowding around. We were trying to take some photos of the live demonstration of their latest Hydro Ooze Face Treatment by their beauty trainer.

dsc_0259

The Hydro Ooze Face Treatment looks like an enjoyable face treatment as it is using hydro therapy. I have done similar treatments at other beauty salons before and I found them rather relaxing. The treatment is suitable for all skin types, even for people with sensitive skin like me.

dsc_0262
The process is also painless and comfortable, you don’t have to worry about needles or facial down time.

dsc_0264

Look at the colour of the dirty residue being sucked out and deposited into the (left) container. Can you believe that your face is that dirty? This is something which we wouldn’t see if we were to cleanse our face normally using facial foam.

dsc_0267
Here’s a clearer photo of the dirt residue. You don’t wanna look at any clearer picture I am sure.

DSC_0266.JPG

The lady post Hydro Ooze Face Treatment. I think her face looks more moisturized and brighter now. Can’t wait to try out this treatment for myself. You should too!

LuLu the Movie Press Conference and Movie Gala Premiere

On the 21 Nov 2016, the Asus Mobile SG Ambassadors (Zennies) were invited to LuLu the Movie Press Conference at Park Alexandra Hotel. It was a rare opportunity for the Zennies (Asus SG Mobile Ambassadors) to gather so we took this time to catch up and at the same time find out more about Lulu the movie.

Before I digress further, let us take a look at some of the photos and the press highlights which we had gathered during the press conference especially for you.

At the entrance and the stage area, before the commencement of the press conference. I love how they put the leopard prints onto the Lulu balloon.

Selfie with Lulu balloon sculpture and Kiyoko. We just met a few days back at another event. It’s such a small world isn’t it?

Delicious food was also served so we helped ourselves with some of those before the press conference begin. The Yorkshire Pudding with roast beef is the bomb even though you all know I am NOT a beef person! Kiyoko put the whole thing into her mouth in just a single shot. WOW!

This is what Zennies do before a press conference. We take plenty of selfies.

p_20161121_130723

Pornsak was the first to be welcomed to the stage, he appeared as RuRu, Lulu’s good sister, and he was the host of the day. He mentioned that Lulu asked her over to find a new boyfriend, hence you can imagine at most of the cast who are appearing next are all guys!

I think he was rather hilarious in the costume but daring as well. That is what differentiates him with the rest of the host. He can also speak multiple languages and has a keen interest in learning new things. He is such a talented man, and someone I look up to.

p_20161121_130851

The Lulu and RuRu face off! They are showing off their costumes and Lulu joked that Ruru’s costume were from Lee Teng’s shop.

Michelle  Chong reminded Pornsak to follow the script

Tay Ke Wei singing 天天想你

There were also sharing from the guys, about how they felt when they were onset filming with Michelle Chong, there were only positive feedbacks, with laughter most of the times and they had so much fun filming. In general, her style of filming is very westernized, with straightforward humor, fun, and it was a brilliant experience for the cast.

Chen Tian Wen when interviewed mentioned that Michelle’s filming was more westernized. Like his character Brad Pit in the movie, he met his wife online too.

Glenn, enjoyed the process, found Michelle to be amazing, toggling different roles as an actor and as a director, being highly involved in the show. He loved his playboy character and had fun while filming it.

The Flying Dutch Man, on the other hand proclaimed that he dislike wearing his wig but loved his role in the movie where he learned the accent through watching videos of how the French speaks. He also loved the way he was dressed up for his character.

img-20161121-wa0009

Tay Ke Wei also sang  天天想你 at the press conference. She was touching, sincere and her voice was amazing.

Pornsak share that, Michelle Chong is such an amazing person, so strong and independent. Its not easy being a director, but she did it, she made it out on his own. Its similar to Lulu’s attitude of not giving up, being true to herself and living a life based on her own terms. This part touched the audience and led Michelle Chong into tears.

p_20161121_133500

The cast with Lulu’s signature armpit pose

The press conference ended with a group photograph taken with Lulu’s signature armpit pose.

For more information and juicy bits from the full press conference, you may like to watch the press conference on my facebook wall. I did a Facebook Live recording, so do enjoy!

My fellow Zennie Bob (IGWebsite) also made a video about the Press Conference and some highlights so do check them out.

Lulu the movie

Directed and Screen play by : Michelle Chong

Main Cast: Michelle Chong (Lulu), Leon Jay Williams (Leon), and Chen Tian Wen (Bradd Pit)
Movie Synopsis

LuLu the Movie is a comedy about a determined Chinese lady named Lulu who comes to Singapore to meet her online lover, but after being disappointed by what he turns out to be, she decided to make it her own and succeeds in becoming an international fashion icon and mogul.

The movie opens with Lulu arriving in Singapore from her hometown in China, looking for her true love that she met on social media. However, the dream lover turns out to be the complete opposite of what she imagines him to be. Not wanting to lose face to her friends back in China, she decides to stay in Singapore and make something of herself.

[My Thoughts: I like how the movie opened and showcased certain places of interest in Singapore in the initial stages when Lulu came over to Singapore.]

We follow her adventures of job-hopping, learning English and being discovered by the TV station. Lulu gets the opportunity to front an English fashion program despite having unique fashion sense and even more unique command of English. She refuse to conform to normal standards of what a fashion host is supposed to dress or sound like but audiences love her unconventional way of hosting and her show becomes top-rated, even garnering international attention. Her real adventures begin as she embarks on her journey around the world (From London to Shanghai) as a bona fide fashionista. Throughout her journey, although she meets with mockery, discrimination and tough times, Lulu refuses to give up or compromise. A strong message that comes across in the movie is that one can achieve success by staying true to oneself and living life on one’s own terms.

[My Thoughts:
It is interesting how the character evolved itself in the story from a nobody that is being mocked by her PRC english, quirky KTV dance moves, greediness and weird sense of fashion to somebody that is rich, owning what she wants and being famous in her own way and fashion sense. It also highlights how one can be made famous as long as she is determined and have her own goals and is given the right opportunity, yet retaining his/her own uniqueness.

Do watch out for interesting “live- filming segments with street interviews in the 2 fashion hot spots”, “typical and hilarious conversations during match-making sessions” as well as a surprise international guest within the movie.]

Managed to take a last shot of some celebrities but it was a real pity I couldn’t find the rest of the Zennies to have a last group photo with Michelle Chong.

In conclusion, please go watch the movie and have a good laugh. It is indeed hilarious with some twist of plots and funny scenes.

Etsy Made Local Market, where local craftivist gathers

I had the opportunity to walk around the Etsy Made Local Market where more than 45 local craftivist sellers gather and showcase their unique handmade goods. It was held at Capitol Piazza.

There was a huge crowd  around the booths even before I begin making my rounds.

dsc_0049

Etsy.com is an online marketplace where designers and collectors made up the creative community. Buy, sell and look for vintage goods and unique wares.

dsc_0025
We spotted some interesting crochet toys on this booth. Its so creative and quite amazing how people can churn this toys out from yarns i wonder?

These hand drawn, hand-made cards were so beautifully made, they have brought lots of attention to their booth too, I wish I can be so artistic and draw as well as them.

dsc_0034

I’m loving these handmade jewelries and fashion accessories too. They look so beautiful and functional and suitable for any and every occasion.

dsc_0037

If you like vintage pieces, these are retro looking and classic. Most of them are clip ons so you won’t have to worry if you don’t have ear holes.

dsc_0061

We dropped by Zoe’s booth to give her some love and support.

This inaugural event aims to give Singaporean a chance to discover some of the best of the city’s creative community, allowing them to connect with fellow craftivist and buy directly from them.

dsc_0063

There was also a craft activity corner where shoppers can put together a community mural for children’s charity.


I was very happy to be able to play my part in this and make my small contribution to the mural. This is really not as easy to make as you think it is. It requires lots of concentration.

pnt1

Showing off our completed pompoms! 😉 I had to redo mine once and almost lost this one during the re-do because I mixed up the grip.

pnt2

Through this event, the organizers hope to build awareness for the handmade community in Singapore and provide a platform for local makers to showcase their brand and made in Singapore products.

Thanks for having us! Do share your love by shopping at Etsy.com .

The lady having the treatment showed signs of comfort when having the treatment as she was assured that numbing cream will be applied before the Venus Viva treatment, so that she feels minimum discomfort. There was also minimum redness after the treatment was done.

Celebrate Christmas with 4 New Products by Dr Bronner’s

If you wouldn’t eat it, why would you want to put those ingredients on your skin. I’ve been sold eversince I tried on Dr Bronner’s multipurpose Castile Organic Liquid Soaps. These soap are 18-in-one! I’ve even tried to shower my dog with the Castile Organic Liquid Soap. The results were amazing! She was fluffy, clean and most importantly she did not scratch as much as compared to the times when we showered her with conventional pet shampoos.

I was very excited when I found out that Dr Bronner came out with new range of products and I got to try 4 of them. I’ll be sharing with you these products and my thoughts on them.

dsc_0089

Dr Bronner’s Lavender Coconut Organic Hand Lotion, 4-in-1 Sugar Lemongrass Lime Organic Pump Soap, Lavender Organic Hand Sanitizer and Peppermint All-one Toothpaste.

dsc_0064

Dr Bronner’s All-One Toothpaste 140g – $11.90

This toothpaste has a low-foaming formula with no synthetic detergent foaming agents, is fluoride-free, vegan and cruelty-free, with no artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, or sweeteners, and made with 70% organic ingredients.

This simple yet effective toothpaste stimulates mouth, teeth, gums and tongue, leaving them fresh and clean.  Made in a 100% recyclable box and tube.  Available in Peppermint, Cinnamon and Anise flavors.

I wasn’t daring enough to try the Cinnamon flavoured one, so i picked the Peppermint flavored toothpaste. True to it’s promise, the toothpaste doesn’t foam at all so it took me a while to get used to brushing my teeth with it. I do like the refreshing after-taste after brushing with it.

Suggested use:
To help reduce plaque and whiten teeth, brush teeth thoroughly with Dr. Bronner’s All One Toothpaste and floss twice a day.  Feel mouth-gums refreshed-renewed and tingly clean.

dsc_0048

Dr Bronner’s Organic Hand Sanitizer 20z – $7.95

This Organic Hand Sanitizer kills germs with a simple formula: organic ethyl alcohol, water, organic lavender oil, and organic glycerin. It contains none of the nasty chemicals you find in conventional sanitizers, but it is just as effective.

It is perfect for using on the go, on your little ones’ sticky hands and faces. You can even use them as an air freshener or deodorant. Sanitize with a clean conscience. Available in Lavender flavor.

dsc_0067

I would use it on my little one too, not on her furry face but to quickly sanitize her sticky paws after her regular walk. These are great as I do have a habit of carrying hand saniziters and wet tissues whenever I head out. It feels like I am a mummy sometimes. I can also “pretend” to use them on my hand if someone stinky sits around me on the public transport.

I always had issues with conventional hand sanitizers as they have the sticky after-feel. This one doesn’t have the sticky after feel. I love it.

dsc_0068

Suggested uses:
Spray this Organic Hand Sanitizer onto your hands to quickly kill bacteria when no soap and water are available. Or use as deodorizer: spray twice or more into the air to enjoy a wonderful lavender aroma.  Spray on children’s hands and faces to clean up sticky messes, then wipe clean. (You can use them on your pet’s paws after a walk too.)

dsc_0050

Dr Bronner Organic Pump Soaps 12oz $16.90 , 24oz $29.90

Sweet to the body and planet! Fair trade and organic sugar gives this Organic Pump Soaps a rich caramel color and sweet scent. The sugar combines with organic white grape juice to keep your skin nourished, hydrated and smooth. Organic coconut-olive hemp oils blend for a creamy castile lather.

I love these as they are gentle to my hands yet doesn’t give me the dry feeling. Hope to be able to try other flavors some other time. You don’t need a huge amount of these to clean your hands, a small pump is sufficient.

Available in Unscented Baby Mild, Peppermint, Lavender, Tea Tree and Lemongrass Lime flavors.

Suggested uses:
Organic Pump Soaps are good for washing hands, face and body – place by your sink or in the shower.

dsc_0044

Suggested uses:
Gentle enough to be used anywhere — hands, face or body. This lotion is highly emollient, so start with a small amount. Keep a bottle by your sink or beside your bed and apply a pea-sized amount after hand-washing.

Put it on right out of the shower, before skin dries. Just a few squirts will cover the whole body and absorb quickly into skin. Nourishes and moisturizes organically. Massage slowly into skin for deep relaxation, always towards the heart.

I love to use moisturisers before my bed so I’ll keep my skin hydrated throughout the night as I sleep and as my skin heals. It is best to use them after your shower times or after you wash your hands. This moisturiser feels my room with lavender aroma when I applied it on me and does not have the oily after feel.

Genting Dream by Dream Cruises – Where Dreams Set Sail on The first-ever Asian Luxury Cruise Line

Genting Dream by Dream Cruises, the largest and most spacious cruise ship in Asia, with 18-deck which can accommodate 3,400 guest accompanied by 2,000 crew members, has landed in the shores of Singapore.

The first ship of the fleet began her epic ocean voyage from Germany to Gibraltar, through the Mediterranean Sea and the Suez Canal and finally across the Indian Ocean to Mumbai. She is now bound for her dual home port of Hong Kong and Guangzhou (Nansha), to prepare for her official maiden voyage on 13 November 2o16. If you are thinking Singapore, there are serious plans to make Singapore one of their home ports but no… just not yet.

4.jpgI had the privilege to be invited for the launch ceremony of Genting Dream and experience a short tour around the magnificent cruise ship and bring you some of the highlights of the day.

First, lets not neglect the celebrities whom are here to grace the launch. Here’s me with Ah Jie!
3I am so happy to be able to take photographs with celebrities like Zoe Tay and Elvin Ng! There were so many people wanting to take photographs with them and I was so shy to ask.

Zoe Tay and Elvin Ng were there to grace the launch. Love the hot red outfit which was simple yet formal and sexy with a droopy neckline.

Several VIPs were there together with Minister of Trade and Industry Mr S Iswaran, to  celebrate the launch and toast to the successful launch of the cruise line.

The stage performance were the highlight of the whole trip as there were stunning rope plays and balancing acts with dance performance. It was a testament of fabulous teamwork and trust.

dsc_0191After the performance, we were split into groups where we we led around the cruise.

This life-sized 3D statue of the famed Johnnie Walker striding man has been customised for the Genting Dream to commemorate the partnership between Dream Cruises and Johnie Walker House. He does resembles the late MJ in some ways too.

Plenty of art pieces are spotted because Dream Cruises plans to differentiate themselves with their art, finishes, great service through teaching their staff about the attitude and spirit of service. With their 23 years of experience in the market place, it is no wonder they would know their target market well.

Lastly we were hosted to a very nice and delectable luncheon at the Silk Road Restaurant on-board the cruise where I got to catch up with my friend and share with her the thoughts I had on the cruise.

There are so many different types of entertainment, fun and relaxation places so its a pity we didn’t had the opportunity to sail on it and make use of the amenities. It was nevertheless an eye-opener and a great experience. This is probably one of the best media invitation this year.

If you are interested in going on any of the dream cruises, do contact your local travel agency and enquire with them today. Genting Dream’s maiden voyage will be on 13 November 2016. There is currently no home port in Singapore, so you’ll have to fly over to either Hong Kong or Guangzhou and do a fly-cruise.

Disclaimer: Thank you for WOM PR and Genting Dream Cruises for this lovely invitation to tour the lovely vessel. I do hope and look forward to an opportunity to set sail on this cruise with you soon.
