Cousins* Annual Picnic V



5th Annual Picnic at the Barrage! Missing Conan, Kaixin and Dawn who left early! Credits to JingLong for above collages!


The annual picnic is one of our traditions, to gather and just chill and take down memories in form of photos. It’s a celebration of our friendship!

We have a little one with us this time! Jiaqi’s 8 month old nephew who’s so adorable! Who knows, couple of years down the road we will be bringing out our own kids for the gathering. Lol

The girls! Missing Dawn who left early and Kaixin who’s not there. We don’t initially have so many girls in the group but our guys got girlfriends who eventually got so close that we became one big family! Kudos to RX and Amanda who made the effort to join us on the many gatherings while sacrificing quality couple time. :p

And the boys! I can’t believed that I’ve known Weijie since 2008 which means I known him for nearly 7 years already. Missing Conan who sadly kena NDP duty.

Cousins* officially bonded since 2010 with the beginnings of our many traditions. Many people often mistakes us as real cousins. Lol. From bloggers, to friends and I’ll say we are like family now. The best thing that ever happened to me from blogging is Cousins*. Many more years ahead of us, many more picnics, many more Xmas staycations and many more memories to be created.



K-Palette: Sweet As Chocolate Campaign

I believe that many of you are used to using black eyeliners. Personally, I try to avoid black eyeliners for normal day looks as I was once told that black is too harsh for me. Which is why I’m a big fan of brown liners and is very excited to see K-Palette launching their famed liners in brown tones!

With Jacelyn, Maybeline <3, YiJing at the Photo Booth!

We had a mini contest using the new brown liners to draw a face chart. And that’s me busy coloring. Haha.


Try spotting my face chart!



The range of K-Palette products other than their famous 1 day Tattoo eyeliner, also includes the Kuma concealer which is available in three tones for different flaws.


Here’s a swatch of the pencil liner, liquid liners in two different shades of brown and the two way eyebrow make.

Now you can have long lasting soft looks with these brown 1 Day Tattoo liners! And I’m happy to have more brown liners in my stash!

Raspberry Swirls by Salon De Choix

It’s another visit to Salon De Choix one week ago, and they never disappoints! I’m loving my new hair color which I named the raspberry swirls. :p

My previous visit was before I head to GC and after two months, my previous red hair have faded away and my bleached blonde ends surfaced again. But I must say its pretty nice too. Also I’ve out grown my bangs. Bangs are cute but high maintenance, and I’m pretty lazy I’ve to admit.


I’ve got a new stylist Ricky to take care of my tresses. After a short discussion and some suggestions from him, he immediately get down to getting the colors on. I just mentioned that I wanted to keep the red tones and Ricky suggested red as highlights and a dark mauve base that will have purple tones to it under sunlight. As for my bleached ends, we decided on a bright violet that will compliment the highlight and base.


This is actually my first time getting highlights so I’m pretty amused during the process. My stylist and his assistant Ivy have to pick out the right amount of hair from each layer then add on the color. Quite a lot of work I must say! I said I was amused cause of the foils. Haha.


Look at the amount of foil in my hair! Haha. They colored my ends first, then highlights and lastly the base color.


It’s a must have to follow up with a treatment after a color job. If not no matter how mice the colors are, it won’t look good. This time round, I’ve Moroccan hair oil added to my hair treatment mask.


This is my hair after treatment and washing! You can try to spy the colors! Most exciting part during a new dye job is the drying process!


And check out my new hair color!! So pretty right?! I also got a cut to re shape my hair with some layers and switched my fringe from bangs to side.


Here’s the colors under sunlight! I posted this on Instagram and got pretty good comments! Hee.


Highlight of the hair is the violet ends!! Too pretty I can’t believe it’s my hair! Haha!


Many thanks to Ricky for the awesome color! Do look for him if you want a similar style to mine!


I could not resist but to change into a different outfit when I’m home and take photos of the new hair!


My current favorite photo. The hair color makes my skin fairer as its of a darker tone. Plus it’s not too loud and gave me a sophisticated feel. 🙂

Get Glowing! With Glow Raspberry!


Some of you might have known, from either my twitter or FB that I’m currently part of this BFF Challenge with GLOW. This is the 2nd round of the BFF Challenge, and I’m already 1 week into it. So far, I’ve enjoyed myself immensely and is super excited about the next few sessions!

So you might ask, what is GLOW? GLOW is a weight loss supplement that aids in burning fats with Raspberry Ketones. Now, they have come up with V.2 GLOW IGNITW 2.0 which make things better with the addition of Svetol (Decaffeinated Green Coffee Bean Extract). I will not go into details how it exactly works with all the scientific terms but GLOW is a supplement which has 100% natural ingredients and is clinically proven to help in weight loss. Also GLOW IGNITE 2.0 is vegan, meaning everyone one could take it with no worries!

To read more about the product functionality, do visit http://www.glow-raspberry.com/ . The site is just revamped with easy to process information and also read about the BFF Challenge Round 1!

For this BFF Challenge, it’s more like a leading a healthy lifestyle while losing weight rather then eat the supplement and see who lose the more weight. We have an experienced Nutritionist, Rachel to plan our diet and also Physical Training sessions to build our muscles and burn those fats.

My whole February is dedicated to the Challenge and I’m pretty happy to see my schedule being packed up by GLOW activities.

I’ve a bad habit of skipping breakfast and some other meals. Basically I can do without eating and I eat a lot when I do eat. Also I love red meat! And guess what? I eat the most red meat during supper. ><

So Rachel emphasizes the importance of eating our meals proper and the consequences of skipping meals. Hence, you can see from the photos that I’ve stocked up on my breakfasts with Wholemeal Grains, Low Fat Milk/Yogurt, No Sugar Added Fruit Juices etc. I was given healthy food choices and the correct portions that I should eat for Lunch and Dinner. Basically it’s a clean diet and the only downside is that no red meat. But I guess I could live with it.

We are recommend to eat GLOW twice a day, one each half an hour before our breakfast and lunch. It is also recommended to eat GLOW half an hour before your exercise session. This is because GLOW actually curbs your appetite and you will not feel as hungry by the time it’s time for your meals which means you won’t eat more than you need. Also it provides energy to prepare you for the exercise sessions!

I actually enjoy eating GLOW as the capsules has this pleasant fruity smell to it as compared to many unpleasant smelling supplements out there. For example, the Vitamin B tablet I’m taking smells irky and I’ve to pinch my nose every time I take it. But for GLOW, I nearly wanted to suck it like a sweet due to the fruity scent but I did not la.

As I mentioned it has already been 1 week into the challenge and I’ve had 3 exercise sessions so far. 2 Physical Training and 1 Zumba session. And the above picture shows the 3 different instructors for the sessions. Sederick is our main Personal Trainer for GLOW and he leads the very first PT session that we had. I tell you, I nearly died there. (Well of course I did not die, if not I won’t be typing this post already. :P)

Having not exercise for at least 2 years, it’s quite tough for me as my stamina sucks. Or do I even have any? It was really nice of both Sederick and Joey, another Personal Trainer for our PT sessions to run with me as I was like the last of the pack. Haha.

It does feel good after the PT sessions although my muscles were aching from the squats etc but I feel the burning sensation and sweat. It kind of makes me feel accomplished. If not for this BFF Challenge, I don’t know how long I will procrastinate for before I actually start exercising.

Edwin was our instructor for Zumba and we just had that session yesterday night. It was tiring yet fun! It’s like you won’t feel like stopping or giving up no matter how tiring it is as it’s fun! We even danced to Gangnam Style. Haha.

It’s always good to vary your workout sessions so that you won’t get bored and eventually stop doing it.

Here’s us camwhoring before and after PT sessions! Though I always felt like dying during these sessions, it does really feels good to sweat it out. And of course Burn FAT BURN!! Haha! It’s also really fun to exercise in a whole big group too! Motivation from the lovely people when you thought you reach your limit.

Only one photo in the above collage is during the actual Zumba session. The rest were just us fooling around. XD See I told you, it’s really fun working out with this bunch of fellow bloggers!

Group photo of us Glowsters with Edwin. The one in green is Nicole who’s representing GLOW and it’s great that she joins us for each and every sessions! Let’s all GLOW together!!

It’s Chinese New Year very soon! Have you done your spring cleaning? Remember, go easy on those CNY goodies. If not, there’s always GLOW to the rescue!
