Our little aventure to Belitung, Indonesia.

2016 was a good year for me.
There are a lot more laughter and fun and I met a lot of new people, know who are important to me and people I should avoid.
2016 was a year that made me learnt a lot.

Last year, I was desperately trying to go for a short vacation as I needed a break after the exams.
Was looking through my facebook and saw a few people sharing about a post on why we should visit Belitung Island and what we can do there.

So there we are, we made a short trip to Belitung!
My sweetest Bae made the video to summarize the whole trip!


It wasn't easy to get there and it was even more difficult to navigate around especially when none of us could speak Bahasa Indonesia.
Overall it was a really enjoyable trip and kind of chill/peaceful. There isn't any shopping malls, cinemas, clubs and bars as it is a really small rural town. However, there are a lot of beautiful islands around the whole area and there are island hopping tours for you to visit them! If you're looking to take a break from the urban cities, this would be somewhere you can consider.

*One important note is that you'll really have to plan everything ahead, such as tours, transport, etc if not it would be very difficult to navigate around the place!

Artistry Hair Professional: Back to natural and healthier hair

SAM_4012
My last visit back to Artistry Hair Professional was around 3 months back as I had been busy with exams and changing of new job, etc.
Also been slacking too much that my hair was getting really frail and brittle due to the bleaching done previously. *I bleached my hair 3 times*
What makes me decide to go back and to look for Jerry and get my hair done was when I saw a photo I took with my friend.

Look at the dry ends!
Even though the photo wasn't so clear, you can still can see it and compare with my friend's hair.

I decided to get a darker shade of brown as the colors would fade off rather quickly on bleached hair.
I chose a dark brown with a neutral tone. Darker shades will make my hair look healthier.

I need to get my hair trimmed too.

Oh, a tip to all of you before you get your hair dyed is to not wash it before you visit the salon.
If you wash it the night before then it should be fine, but the longer the better.
This is because sometimes the chemical would hurt your scalp so the oil (and some dirt) will act as a barrier and protect your hair.

Dyeing process took about 45 minutes and next was my all-time favorite ABC Mucota Treatment.
I have been mentioning it all the time in my previous post. Every time I visit the salon I would definitely get it done. You should definitely try it at Headlines by Artistry and you'll never regret it!

Do check out my previous post if you have not!

I got my hair trimmed to slightly longer than my shoulders so it is much more manageable. My hair doesn't tangle as much too, all thanks to the Mucota ABC Treatment.

The ends look much more healthier even though it had been bleached before.

Simpang Bedok

Back when I was having my internship in the east, I often go to Simpang Bedok for lunch as it was pretty near. As I was living it the west, travelling to the east everyday was really a pain in the ass. Thankfully, I had a good boss which is really lenient on me so I passed my internship with flying colors.

Anyway, back to topic. Had my exams at Expo recently so I revisited the Simpang Bedok for lunch and realized that they had renovated the place. It kind of look like a more "atas kopitiam".

I tried out some food from two different stores.
Untitled
Wagyu Short Rib Skewers and Wagyu Rump
The skewer is really juicy and soft and instantly melts into my mouth. For the price of S$6 per stick I think it is really an affordable and I actually ordered one more stick after that.
The Waygu Rump steak is really tender and flavorful too! Yum yum.
I'm not a big fan of beef but I would recommend to try out these two dishes.

Untitled
Squid Ink Pasta from Ballistic Meatballs.

Initially I wanted to get the salted egg pasta but they ran out of the salted egg sauce.
The squid ink pasta is really normal. It taste a little like aglio olio and doesn't have much of a taste. I can't really taste much of the squid ink although I feel that they use quite a lot since the pasta is sooooo dark! Like literally black. However the serving of the squid is really generous. They actually gave two big pieces of squid and it is grilled just right. Not too chewy and is really soft when you bite it. I think more improvements can be made on the paste though.

Overall I would say this pasta is a so-so~

Atlas Medispa: Korean Hydra-Luminous Therapy

Been sleeping late at night recently due to my upcoming exams for school had been taking a toll on my skin. My skin got really dull recently and I was having a bit of a problem of having dry and tight skin on my oily skin. Like it gets oily throughout the day but my skin felt tight and is peeling around the nose area.

I dropped by Atlas Medispa last week to try out their Korean Hydra-Luminous Therapy.

I was lead to a cozy room to get changed to a robe before the facial treatment starts

The therapist started with cleansing of my skin to remove any makeup and dirt on my skin.
Next we moved on to the Silk Peel Treatment (as shown above) to remove any impurities and dead skin cells before we start with the PDT Treatment. The Silk Peel Treatment uses Hydro Dermabrasion Technology and Medical Grade Serums specially developed by their Korean Aesthetic Lab to infuse into the skin for intense hydration while thoroughly cleansing the pores.
It uses a suction tool to gently remove dead skin cells by using a twist motion so as to not damage the skin during the process.

The Korean Hydra-Luminous Therapy comprises of the Silk Peel Treatment mentioned earlier followed by Photo Dynamic Therapy (PDT). The PDT comprises of four different LED Lights of different wavelengths which is able to customize based on your skin condition. The benefits of the Korean Hydra-Luminous Therapy are as listed below:
  • Pores Clarification
  • Removal of Dead Skin Cells
  • Provides Hydration for the skin
  • Skin Radiance
  • Evens out skin tone
  • Sebum Control
Silk Peel + PDT Treatment
For my skin, a blue light was used which helps to soothe and calm my skin.
It also helps to fight bacteria on my skin and it also great for oil control!
The PDT Treatment took about 10-15 minutes and there is not discomfort experienced.

The therapist applied a hydrating mask after and gave a very relaxing shoulder massage which really soothes my aching neck due to studying for long hours!

After results? My skin felt really hydrated and soft. There wasn't any tight feeling like it used it and my skin do looks brighter in just one session.

The Korean Hydra-Luminous Therapy was having a promotion in April for $28. Due to overwhelming response, Atlas Medispa has decided to extend the promotion till the end of May.

The Korean Hydra-Luminous Therapy is currently still going on at $28 and you may also purchase this promotion for your mum and go for the facial treatment together!
Promotion ends at the end of May so do make an appointment before it ends!

Wedding Photograhy by The December Studio

Did a Wedding Shoot with Kife few weeks back.
And no, we're not couples and we're not getting married. Haha.

We took half a day to do the outdoor shoot and the weather was so hot!
I would recommend all couples not to take outdoor shoots in Singapore because the weather is so unbearable and the gown made it even worst.

On a side note, the pictures turned out perfect!
