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

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.
