Samplestore Shopper’s Paradise Event at Punggol Waterway Point

Hey people, were you at the Samplestore’s Shopper’s Paradise (SSSP) Event held at the Village Square of Punggol Waterway Point last weekend? I was there as the Samplestore’s Influencer and I was glad I did, because there were just so many booths to explore and there were plenty of heavily discounted items too.  We also get to bring home bags of goodies which I am gonna take sometime to show you and walk you through towards the end of my post.


Me, Tracy and Jessie doing a crazy gif dance at the Samplestore Photobooth

We were hosted to a Influencer’s gathering at the Waterway Point’s bright and cheery, Party room and you would be happy to know that this place is now open for booking! Read on to find out how you can book for this room.


We were fed at the function room shortly before the briefing commences. Look at that rainbow burger!  These are courtesy of Brunches Cafe.

Brunches Cafe had these amazing looking rainbow burgers that were insta-worthy! Its no wonder it was the highlight of our meal.


If you are planning for a birthday party for your kids, do check out this place. 2 Tables would be provided along with 8 chairs for adults and 8 stools for children. There are also refrigerator, hot water dispenser, sink and television equipment provided for your usage.

You can pop by to have a look if you wish! It is located at the 2nd level of Waterway Point’s west wing, just beside Geláre. You need to walk straight and head out, then turn to your right. The room is cozy and away from the shopping area so you’ll get the privacy your party requires.

We then proceed to the Village Square to explore the booths by ourselves. There were a couple of brands whom I have been working with and I was glad I had the opportunity to check them out during the SSSP. With this event, there were also new updates and I managed to make use of the opportunity to catch up with some of my friends.


If you had redeemed the Goodie Bag, you would have seen this in your bag. The goodie bag is worth $79 and it consist of the Klarity Diamond Glow tube of mask and Belif Samples.

I had already put the Klarity Diamond Glow Mask to the test and boy, it worked so well on my skin. If you haven’t tried it, I would like to urge you to take it out and try it on tonight. Snapshots of this mask can be found on my instagram review. The good thing is that you don’t even have to wash them away or wait around for them to be ready to take them off.



If you had dropped by the Padeve Herbal Sanitary pads booth, I believe they would have also given you some samples of their herbal Sanitary pads to try. They were very generous to sponsor the Influencers all 4 different variants for our review. I wouldn’t say I can’t wait to try them on (I have very very bad menstrual pains for those who knows me well) in this case but they would certainly be the first herbal sanitary pad that I am going to to try out.

Now, who wouldn’t wanna smell great and feel good during the worst time of the month? Plus, I would urge you to support your fellow SG fellows as this brand is from Singapore.

I managed to try the ultra liners already, they are rather comfortable to wear and the herbal scent helps to keep me feeling fresh all day!

Born in Singapore, Padeve provides herbal sanitary pads and pantyliner made from premium materials. All products are engineered to be smooth, comfortable and absorbent. Our products also gives a cooling and refreshing feeling!

Saw these sports top at the Beauty Keeper Booth! They look so comfortable to wear. They look really decent and comes in an assortment of colours too. I hope to try them on someday! Love the pink ones.


These Tawian Mask sheets have such a nice packaging! We were attracted to them while exploring the booth. I can’t wait to look like an ancient beauty already! How about you?


Next up are my loots from BeautyKeeper(TW)! They weren’t as generous as they were compared to the previous time according to my friends who went for the Samplestore Giftopia event last year. But I’m glad I still get to try some of their products from the various Taiwan brands. I shall be reviewing these items soon so stay tuned to my blog to read more if you are interested. I’ve also worked with them previously to review some of their products. You can read about them here.

Look at those Orange Queen lashes from All Belle. I’ve tried lashes from this brand before and they are of top quality. Lashes from Taiwan are the best and many Make Up Artist are using Taiwan lashes too.

I’ve heard so much about the Rosy Pink Moisture Dew from my friends and I loved the pinkness they add to my lips. I’m going to smack them on later.


Hey, I like the idea of a make-up eraser from StarSuki. Now you get to not only remove your make-up done wrongly but you can correct them with the make-up corrector stick which looks like an eyeliner pen. Yes, those are meant for correcting your accidental strokes from your eye liners and lip sticks. How convenient! No need to look for Q-tips now.


The Userism mask in a tube looks legit but too cute too be used. Now I can’t bear to use them. Can I have more tubes of these mask please?

Beauty-Keeper, a platform specially made for our valued customers Beauty-Keeper, a place where all people can pick their own beauty goods and trendy, stylish products. We know many others wish to get their hands on Taiwanese fashionable skincare, make- ups and beauty supplements, and Beauty-Keeper has finally made it happen.


Fret not if you didn’t manage to make a trip down to Waterway Point. Beauty Keeper will be holding their first Beauty Show, hosted by Hossan Leong. Do check out details here and grab your tickets before they run out! Each ticket is priced at $10. You get to bring home a beauty keeper goodie bag worth over $50, and  a pair of tickets for two to Taiwan and Bangkok awaits you at their grand lucky draw.


You get special appearance by SING! China, season 2 finalist from the Singapore selection too. Speaking of which, I managed to hear some of them sing at the SSSP event and they have such amazing voices! Can’t believe that some of them are only at their teens. I hope for the best for the winner to fly the Singapore flag high in China.


We were gifted some shopping vouchers and this Otter iphone7 case by one of the sponsors too. Look at the screen wipe that says “Always Use Protection”, I was quite amused with the caption. What a pity I don’t own an iphone 7 thou! These are really top quality stuff so do check them out.


Have you seen the new sparking fizzy drinks from Yeo’s?  There are 6 flavors from the Juscool’s delicious bubbly fruity drinks which consist of the passion fruit, yuzu, apple, orange, peach and grape flavors. I’ve finished my bottle of peach and they tasted really fizzy and fruity but I am glad to know they contain 25% less sugar and is awarded with the Healthier Choice logo.

They are perfect for making your own fruit cocktail blends too. I bet this will be popular amongst kids. Do support them and grab yourself a can and quench your thirst, soon.


Que Origin  Booth showcasing many of their top products! I’ve previously worked with them for their shower bath, and Jelly-Q products but haven’t heard from them for so long already. Didn’t realize that they had lip balms and potion lotion now. I love the Jelly-Q scrubs as they smell really nice. You can check out my reviews of some of their shower and bath products here and here too.


Booth featuring the limited edition SING! China Singapore finalist stamps along with the Judges and their signatures. Did you get a copy for yourself? These are hot selling and I bet they are already gone now as I type.


Sure Win Lucky Draw wheel spin, when you spend at least $50 at the booth. I hope you won something for yourself.


Wefie with Jessie! Photo credits to her 🙂

There were many other booths around but it was so crowded. Some booth owners were busy serving the public so we didn’t really stop to take photographs. Nevertheless  we were happy to be part of this event.

If you need snippets of the event check out my instagram entry here. There will be more reviews and highlights of what I’ve been up to, so do stick around.

Till then, Have a great evening.

Thank you to the various sponsors for the goodie bag and Samplestore for the event invites. All views expressed are my own.


S+ Cryoboost Premium Balance Facial Treatment at Fresver Beauty

I had been waiting for awhile to have my facial done. All those stress and work that had been plaguing me recently had cause the damage on my already “falling apart” face. The dark eye circles, pigmentation and even random pimples had been popping out on my face.

I believe that if I left my face unattended for another month, I might need to find somewhere to hide my face.

I was so glad when I finally can have my facial at Fresver Beauty. Bye bye skin troubles, hello to beautiful and flawless skin (in the making).


About Fresver Beauty:

Fresver Beauty are the pioneers in the skincare and beauty industry with 29 years of history, bringing customers the latest technology and best products source from around the world.

They are the exclusive distributor of S+ products from Spain.



Currently they have 4 outlets in Singapore, they are in  Hougang, Tampines, Orchard, Tiong Bahru (Biggest and newest outlet). Guess which outlet I am at?


A skin analysis was done after I filled up the customer particulars form and it confirms that I have sensitive skin , eczema at my cheeks area, my skin was dry and there was lack of oxygen and nutrient supply. All these had been my on-going issues for a few years already, so I wasn’t surprised when I heard about it.


Look at that piece of mess which was resulted because I went to poke my pimple. It was inflamed and the skin around it was badly damaged. My bad! Please do not attempt this because you don’t want an inflamed skin like mine.


I was recommended the Cryoboost Classic Plus Facial which made use of products from the Glaciar range that contains powerful liposomal glaciar from 1800m deep for extreme purity. This sounds totally ATAS and I can’t wait to try it after hearing about it. It made use of dual action hyaluronic acid for intensive hydration and to lock in moisture to sustain results. Yes! Hydration is what my skin needed badly.

I was told that I had bad eye bags too and I should start using some eye products. I never paid attention to my eye bags much as I thought they we caused by my lack of rest.

(Sample of a facial room, not the room I was using)

Shortly after, I was ushered into the facial room where I got myself changed into a sarong. It is finally time to relax and enjoy my facial time. Yes!!!


A welcome Aroma Ritual & Head Massage was done on me to fully relax myself before my beautician begins to double cleanse my skin in preparation of the facial processes. I love the massages during facial and it works wonders if you are having headaches.


My face was double cleansed to ensure all traces of make-up removed and face kept clean.


S+ Gentle pearl exfoliation was done to remove all the dead skin particles and allowing new skin to resurface. Although I had sensitive skin, when the right products are used I still can enjoy a good exfoliation.


My face was steamed for about 5-10 minutes to open up the pores for extraction of my pimples.This step was carefully done and the pain from the extraction was bearable. I quite enjoy this part although many ladies out there tries to skip this. I love the fact that my skin is cleaned out of those pesky black and white heads. Oh, I also have milla seeds.


After the extraction, my beautician also helped me to trim my eyebrows using both the plucking and shaving methods to keep them neat. This is so valuable to me because having a perfectly trimmed set of brows is very crucial in looking presentable.

Speaking of which, I am looking for eyebrow tattoo / embroidery service so do let me know if you have any recommendations.

Sooth & repair serum is being applied onto my skin to calm my irritated and raw skin.



Cryoboost Calming Therapy – This is done using an exclusive carrier plate that emits microsonic waves, this machine gently pushes the customized soothe and repair gel into the deeper layers of my skin. This helps to sooth and hydrate my skin as well as to speed up the skin repair process. The icy cool plates of the machine helps to bring down my skin temperature, at the same time to tighten up my pores after the extraction process, to reduce the skin’s redness.


Facial Massage is done to ensure that the serum is well absorbed into my skin.


A customized hydrating Mask was applied on my skin to ensure that my skin gets back the moisture that was lost so that it will be plumped and bouncy again after the facial session.


The final massage is done for me to relax my face, followed by shoulder massage for relaxation and tension release. The massage was very good and the beautician was even skilled enough to release the knots on my shoulders. She warned me that they would be painful as she felt the knots were really tight on one side of my shoulders.

She is not only experienced but very skillful and detailed when doing her work. I enjoyed my facial time at Fresver very much.


Look at my face all plumped up with moisture and looking refreshed immediately after the facial! Special thanks to Jesslyn for helping me take photographs of me and making me felt so at home at Fresver.

Taking a hair leap forward with Apgujeong hair studio

Once in awhile I like to try something different to my hairstyle. I’ve gone Bob, re-bonding, straightening, curling and perming them too. If you want to look really different, you can even go to the extend of changing your hair colour. Unfortunately, I am not so adventurous… yet!

Perhaps one day when someone decides to sponsor me a full hair make-over with treatments and what nots, I might do some highlights or dye my hair with a “safe” colour. It is not that I am not game for it, but carrying a fanciful head might restrict me to certain jobs that I can do, if I am not working for myself at that point of time. It’s true, people judge us by our appearance all the time. Don’t you judge people too?

So I’ve shortlisted some hair salons to try but ultimately selected Apgujeong Hair Studio based on online reviews, the similar hair styles that had done before on other customers (for the particular service I wanted) as well as the price range and its proximity to home. I’ve been scouting awhile, and I realised that Apgujeong Hair Studio is always busy even on a weekday afternoon.


Apgujeong Hair Studio currently has 7 outlets:

Apgujeong Hair Studio @ Tampines 1
Apgujeong Hair Studio @ Junction 8
Apgujeong Hair Studio @ Waterway Point
Apgujeong Hair Studio @ Tiong Bahru Plaza
Apgujeong Hair Studio @ VivoCity
Apgujeong Hair Studio @ Great World City
Apgujeong Hair Studio @ JEM (Jurong East)

What is so unique about them is that they have a group of hair stylist, both local and Koreans to service their customers. You can, specifically asked to be styled by a Korean. They are also partnering with Mucota for their hair products so you can be assured that your hair is being well taken care of.

So after making appointment with them I was really anxious to see how I would finally look like with the new hair style which I wanted.


So this is me with my usual, boring straight hair which I had struggle to keep its length for a few months. It had not reached my desired length but I couldn’t tolerate it any longer. So bye bye boring hair!


While waiting, I was served tea and biscuit. There is also free wifi in the salon to keep you entertained while you get your hair services done. I noticed that Apgujeong Hair Studio even had their own look book and I was quite impressed by this. Not many Hair Studio has their own look book.


I had my hair washed by one of the local hair stylist while I waited for my Korean Hair Stylist to transform my hair.


There she is, my hair was then trimmed to the desired length and shape before it was being blown dry.


Next, application of hair chemical products to “soften and break” the bonds on my hair so that they can later be “shaped” into my desired style.


This process took quite awhile and they even had to make use of a machine to increase the speed of hair softening. It shows that my hair is in good condition. I have never done any bleaching and dying for that matter and I believe this explains why it was so difficult to soften my hair. The last time I curled my hair was 2 years back and that’s about it?


My hair was then washed off the chemicals again before more action takes place.


Tada!!!! Can you see my straight and silky hair? Actually we are still not quite done yet. This is not the final look. This was only to ensure that the top part of my hair strands were not flying around and messing up the final look.



My hair were then put into the curlers and attached to this machine for the real action to take place. This is the most torturing part as I can’t really move about much. Look at all the action going on there.


That moment when they removed the curlers on my hair I actually wondered if I was going to look like that for the next few months. I’m sure we are not done yet.


True enough, more chemicals were then added to my hair before they were washed and blow dried.


I loved the final look of my Mucota Omega Rebonding and Hair Perm that cost more than $300 and I feel that they are worth every penny for the amount of work that went into it.

In terms of services, I received quite a lot of attention having the staff asking if I needed my tea to be changed or refilled and people coming to check on my hair most of the time despite that the salon was so crowded while I was there. I was also rather happy with the recommendation that Yuna (my hair stylist) gave me, that lead me to the final look.

The only part that could be further improved is the language barrier. Yuna could only speak a few chinese words which was “okay” for us to get the hair done but she could not go further in the conversation.

As for the rest of the staff, the locals, they could speak but did little to help explain the hair procedures. It would definitely help the customers more by explaining to them what would be done to their hair so that they would feel more assured.

For pricing of their services, you can check out so that you get a rough gauge of the prices before the services are done.

Thank you Yuna and team for taking care of me while I had my services done. It took almost 5 hours for this hair make-over but I am loving how they looked on me. I’ve since been complimented countless of times and even advised to maintain my hair this way.

I guess I am ready to maintain and rock these curls further with my upcoming new venture. Next, I am going to maintain my hair with healthy treatments and be trimming them in the upcoming months.

How do you like my new look? Comment and share away!

Healthy Living begins at Nature Glory

The idea of eating clean is certainly not new but how easy is it to detox our body? I will be sharing with you an easy to make, refreshing and detoxifying drink which will not only boost your energy levels but bring you a wealth of other benefits.

You are free to include additional ingredients into your drink if you like too. It’s all about being creative here.


Honey Aloe Vera with Chia Seeds Detox and Energy Drink


Ingredient List:

1) Aloe Vera Concentrate
2) Manuka Honey
3) Chia Seeds

Combine all 3 ingredients and make them into a refreshing drink.

You can make use of similar products of different brands but I will highly recommend you purchase your products from a trusted source such as from Nature Glory.


Nature’s Glory Premium Aloe Vera Concentrate Nature’s Glory Premium Whole Leaf Aloe Vera Concentrate:

  • Helps in the gastro-intestinal functions by improving intestinal disorders such as colitis, constipation, indigestion, irritable bowel syndrome, piles and systemic Candida.
  • Aids in skin conditions like burns, cuts, eczema, mouth ulcers, athletes’ foot, and other fungal / parasitic infections, psoriasis, radiations and sunburns.
  • Soothe pain due to inflammation.

I have plenty of aloe vera plants at home, but they get sticky and messy when we tried to abstract the flesh from it. This gives us much more convenience as we can make a drink out of it and drink it directly. You don’t have to worry about any bitter taste as it taste pretty much like water once you have diluted it. As it is a concentrate, i wouldn’t advise you to drink it straight from the bottle.

It is also harmless to add the aloe vera concentrate into your honey drink or plain water and fruit juices to get its additional benefits.

Nature’s Glory Manuka Honey

Nature’s Glory Organic Bioactive Manuka Honey is harvested in the south island of New Zealand and there are no presticides or additives use. They are no heat pasteurisation or irradiation and are only lightly filtered into a high quality-premium nutrient rich honey.

Highest anti-bacterial activity, Manuka Honey for ailments including wounds, ulcers of the skin, leg and stomach, cold sores, sore throat, gum diseases, diarrhea, eye infection, hemorrhoids, stomach health and others.

I love taking honey on its own as a health supplement and I had been taking Manuka Honey regularly since last year. I take a spoonful each evening before bed as a health supplement and I find it useful for my persistent cough. Taking Manuka Honey also reduces the risk that I get a mouth ulcer and sore throats. Sometimes i spread them onto my bread and pancakes too!

When made into a drink, I enjoy my honey drink with a dash of lemon juice and taken warm. Do you know that honey should not be taken hot (mixed with boiling water) due to the destruction of its natural enzymes, and that you should not use a metal spoon to scope your honey as you would corrode the spoon if left for a long period of time and hence pollute the honey in the long term.


Nature’s Glory Chia Seeds :

  • Very rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, fibre, calcium, iron, protein, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, vitamin B, C and E.
  • Provides a good source of antioxidants and contain a variety of amino acids.
  • Gluten-free, chia seeds are good for high blood pressure and cardiovascular health, improve digestion, and have an ability to stabilize blood sugar level.
  • The anti-inflammatory properties of chia seeds are beneficial for arthritis.
  • Chia seeds boost metabolism, good for weight loss and weight maintenance programs, and help in improving the function of the brain.

I’ve been wanting to try these Chia Seeds for quite some time already. If you take sesame seed before, these taste similar and are as harmless as those sesame seeds only with a thin slippery jelly-like surface when they are lightly infused in liquids.

I enjoy chewing on them when i have my overnight oats.

Other than these healthy foods which you can make yourself a nice glass of drink. You can also start feeding your body with the “king of alkaline food”


Plum Balls

These Plum Balls are rich in organic acids and minerals to help promote vitality, convert fat to energy, aid in digestive systems and boost immunity, and improve liver functions. They also help to inhibit the growth of bacteria in the water, food and blood.


  • Plum Balls promote vitality and retards aging.
  • Lactic acid is produced and builds up in the body due to illnesses, drugs, poor eating habits, food additives and excessive meat and sugar intake. Excessive lactic acid can cause fatigue and muscle cramps. Metabolism decreases and food will not be properly converted into energy.
  • High content of citric and phosphoric acids to break down lactic acid; improve metabolism, remove hangovers and  retards aging.

You can take these plum balls as a daily supplement by chewing, biting or simply swallowing them. At the moment, swallowing them seems the most preferred for me.
While you can’t see the benefits immediately, you can’t deny the fact that they improve your health.
All products featured can be purchased from

315 Outram Road #01-09, Tan Boon Liat Building, Singapore 169074

Safari Zoo Run 2017 and 5 major animal distractions

Hey guys! It is finally the day of the Safari Zoo Run. My husband and I got up early and headed to the Singapore Zoological Gardens. As the race for the 5.5km family run starts at 8am. We timed ourselves to reach our destination at around 7.15am so that we could spend time to explore the race village and take some pictures at the entrance of the zoo before the race commence. You are recommended to reach the race village 1 hour before your flag off time.

Photo of us with the race bibs and race tees all ready for our first run of the year.


The first thing that we noticed at the race village which was set up at the car park was that the baggage area. It was relatively empty. The bags and queue was very well organized. Most of the runners have already checked in their bags.


There is even an option to take a shower at the Grohe mobile containers if you like. Don’t worry about privacy, as the ladies and gents had separate containers.


As it is very important to stay hydrated throughout the race, we picked up a cup of water each before we get ready to be flagged off. There were multiple hydration points around the race route and we were offered either water or a cup of cold isotonic drink choice, no lemon tea or sodas unfortunately, for obvious reasons.


There were standees of the various mascots around the race village and race routes to distract your attention. Taking a photo with the team you support will gain points for your team. Here’s a photograph of me with #teamahmeng .


At 8am sharp, we were flagged off all together. There were no delays and the flag off was smoothly executed. Kudos to the Hivelocity team.


Taking a shot with Ah Meng because I belong to Team Ah Meng!

There were 5 major animals of distraction along our race route which are the Zebra, White Tiger, Elephant, Lion and the Mandrill. They made us slow down to take pictures and have a good look at them. The other animals were less distracting with some at their hideouts and others having fun by themselves.


The winner of the distraction goes to the Mandrill as it had an amazing “opera” like face that attracted my attention for quite a long while.


Spotted an Ah Meng standee and we decided to slow down to take a photo. All this photos add points to the team which you are supporting on race day when you post them on instagram with the #teamahmeng hashtag.

Yes, almost 80% of orangutan habitats are lost to deforestation in the last 2o years. Do you know that?


At the 4km mile! One of the road marshals kindly offered to take a photograph for us, so why not?


We managed to finish the race by taking a brisk walk throughout and it took us about an hour to complete the route with major stops to admire and take photographs of the zoo animals and standees.


As we had free entrance to the Singapore Zoological Gardens and River Safari, we decided to spend the afternoon continuing our adventures. Other than catching some of the animal shows, we went around to take more photographs.



The best part of the River Safari experience was none other than seeing Jiajia and Kaikai for the first time.


Overall, we had a very pleasant and fun experience exploring these 2 places and participating for our first Zoo Run. We would love to be back for the race again next year and perhaps even make it a yearly event where we both could count down together, and look forward to.

Share with me in the comments how was your experience if you were there too. Watch out for the upcoming races and hope to see all of you in the 2018 Singapore Safari race.
