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.
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.

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!

Birthday Dinner at Equinox

Birthday Dinner @ Equinox
Not sure about you guys but I'm not really a fan having a birthday celebration as I'm kind of lazy to plan for all the stuff and also think it's not really necessary unless it's 18th or 21st birthday.

For this year's birthday, I had a Birthday dinner with bae (haha~) at Equinox Restaurant.
We took the window seat and it has a really awesome view.

My favourite Oysters! Bae actually don't eat oysters so I took like five of it and he tried one. Haha~

Birthday Dinner @ Equinox
My main. Salmon!
The salmon was kind of half cooked, not really smoked so you can feel the outside is cooked and inside taste a little like sashimi. Yummy!

Birthday Dinner @ Equinox
Although I'm not a big fan for beef, this beef steak is really yummy and juicy!
Paired with the Truffle sauce, yum yum~

Birthday Dinner @ Equinox
Cheese Macaroni with Black Truffle. This is really good! It is a side dish for the steak main.

Birthday Dinner @ Equinox
Ended off with a mini birthday cake!

Birthday Dinner @ Equinox
Overall the services were great. Great place, nice food and nice ambiance.
Would definitely recommend you all to try out this restaurant!
The price is a little steep but I feel that it is quite worth the try!

Headlines by Artistry: Mucota Argan Oil Treatment & Dye

Treatment & Dye
Headed back to Headlines by Artistry to get my ugly roots touched up and a change of hair color!
Bleaching is taking a toll on my hair so I needed a good treatment as well.

Treatment & Dye

Treatment & Dye
Messy hair and ugly roots.
Look at the contrast!

I needed something that is suitable for work so I've decided to cover up the bleached hair part.
It has been awhile since I had lighter hair color so I've decided to lighten it a little.
I chose a color slightly lighter than my current hair color.

After dyeing, treatment is definitely a MUST to reduce the damage cause by all the harmful chemicals from dyeing, etc..

Mucota ABC Argan Oil Treatment is rated the best treatment for all hair types by me!
I swear by this treatment as it has helped my hair for countless times. Every time I drop by the salon I will definitely get this treatment done!

As you know, Mucota ABC Treatments contains Argan Oil. Argan Oil has several benefits for the hair and most of the products by Mucota contains Argan Oil as the main ingredients.

Below are some of the benefits of Argan Oil for the hair (quoted from my previous post)
1. It helps to hydrate the hair in a natural way, without feeling oily,
2. It helps to penetrate into the hair follicles to enhance elasticity of the hair.
3. It is one of the best treatment for damaged and frizzy hair.
4. Contains natural anti-oxidants to help strengthen the hair.
5. Contains Vitamin E to treat damaged hair and restore the beautiful shine on your hair.

Some people call it Mucota 3-Step Treatment, Mucota 5-Step Treatment, Mucota Argan Oil Treatment, Mucota ABC Treatment

This is the first time I've gotten my hair cut this short.
I find myself looking a little more mature with shorter hair plus the lighter hair color.
Nevertheless, I still like this new hairstyle!
It is much easier to maintain and so much easier and fast to dry my hair.
My hair is so much healthier as well!
