POWER BROWS
I don't know about you, but most men/boys are comfortable with the idea of ‘grooming’, nowadays.
& therefore we're all pretty sure that any guy would have known the importance of a nice looking pair of eyebrows!
Our eyebrows do not only accent the face and contribute to attractiveness, they also convey a wealth of emotional expression!
Unfortunately for me, I do not have very thick and bushy brows!
Thus, ever since last year, I have been investing in an brow pencil to fake a pair of thick and bushy brows!
I know, for a guy to be using a brow pencil, it's extreme! But I don't have much of a choice, do it?
With the pretty non-existent pair of brows I have on my face,
it's just awfully disturbing!



But luckily, I was able to re-design my ugly brows by The Prestige Eyebrow & Lash Specialist!

A little info about The Prestige!
Newly opened on the third level of Pacific Plaza at unit #03-08 is a luxury beauty parlor which specializes in
Eyebrow embroidery, Eyelash extensions and other related treatments for both men and women.
It is also the very first beauty parlor that specializes in Men's eyebrows!

Stunningly and lavishly decorated in velvet red and shiny gold,
the entire shop oozes opulent grandeur as though one has been transported back to the days of the "Roman Empire"
where royalty enjoy being pampered from head to toe.
Similarly, customers are treated like royalty and given the utmost attention and best treatment service.
They pride themselves with their highly skilled treatments to leave customers
feeling fully satisfied for having transformed to a more beautiful "new" person.

I was really skeptical at first, because if you are a guy & you decide to do something with your eyebrows,
the people around you will notice, and you might be mocked at for doing something so 'feminine' to your face.
But heck! I knew I needed a pair of powerful looking brows, badly!!
Thus, I did my research on them, and asked Sara (their lady boss) countless questions!
I did my homework, & because I didn't want a pair of brows to look like I had them drawn, or even look 2D-ish,
Sara assured me time and again that my brows will never turn out that way!




So... I went ahead with it!
Eyebrow Embroidery Enhancement for Men.
Men Power Up Eyebrows Creative - from $588/$888 (3/5 Sessions)
Men Power Up Eyebrows Colouring - from $888/$1288 (3/5 Sessions)
Natural Hair-like Strokes specially designed for MEN (I SWEAR THIS IT GOD DAMN TRUE)



My ugly pair of brows :(


Before everything started, Irene and Wendy showed me several photos of their other clients who had their brows done!
And so this photo was actually when they drew two different eyebrow designs for me, one on each side, and I had to choose which eyebrow design & shape I'd prefer.
That of course, is with plenty of advices from both the seniors!
Because they drew two different kind of designs for me, masculine & a little more friendlier and feminine one!




This was the more friendlier & feminine one which I rejected!


So after deciding the brow design, they applied Crystal healing gel (15 minutes of wait) for numbing, so that the treatment would not hurt.


You see the black thingy there?
It's actually the dye which creates the hair-like strokes that will be embroidered onto the skin
to create a natural appearance!


The embroidery process! & you see that lady up there?
She's Irene Teo, who is the 1st eyebrow specialist in Asia that specialises in “Men’s Power-Up Eyebrows”.
If you noticed, most of the powerful men in the world have really thick, dark and bushy eyebrows. It enhances a male’s credibility and authority.
Powerful and attractive men like Tom Cruise, Takeshi Kaneshiro, Andy Lau, etc, have really thick and dark eyebrows.
Their thick and bold eyebrows makes them look more much more manly.
So there I have Irene, who did the whole embroidery and coloring process for me
so that I'll have a pair of thicker and fuller natural looking eyebrows
which is deemed as lucky when it comes to Feng Shui!

Pssst...! The luckier you are, the richer you'll be, or they say, more girls will flock around you!

Okay a little more on the process!
Unlike the traditional permanent makeup (tattoo) where green colour pigment are deposited to fill a brow which appears unpleasant and unnatural,
The Prestige uses a range of Black, Dark Brown, Light Brown and Grey colour shades that will match your skin and hair colour!


Got to let the color set for another 10 minutes before wiping it off!

The entire process is really very comfortable! I swear there wasn't any pain or bleeding.
It did not even feel like an ant-bite!


Tadah!


Super happy with my brows! They look really natural!
(I SWEAR TO GOD)
The red swelling part will go away after a few hours!


Irene & I! I cannot be anymore grateful to have her do my brows!


HONESTLY HONESTLY HONESTLY, I HAVE DONE A LOT A LOT OF HOMEWORK BEFORE THIS TREATMENT!
I have seen some of male friends who have done their embroidery treatment elsewhere,
& they did not turn out as nice as mine. (They even agreed!)



So, I really got to thank the family at
The Prestige Eyebrow & Lash Specialist for having me,
and taking such good care of me!

And the best part here!

MEOW MEOW MEOW




My recent trip to Bangkok,I paid a visit to an extremely delightful relatively huge Cat-themed cafe hidden along the alleys of Sukhumvit Road!
I have never been a big fan of cats, but boy... my face lit up immediately when we entered!
Hehe, it's definitely one of the many cafes you have to plan in your Bangkok itinerary!


We were told to take off our shoes, & wash our hands the moment we stepped into the cafe for hygiene purposes.



Look at the decor, our mouths just couldn't stop going "Fwah! Fwah! Fwah!"
There are two separate sections to this Cat Cafe-Club, the front part is where all visitors got to wash their hands
before entering, and where owners send their cats for grooming!


And... then we entered the cafe, we were even happier! There were too many cats, all over the place!



They even have a little playground for the cats to roam freely, and play!

The cats are allowed to be on our tables, but we were not allowed to feed them,
or else we'll be fined!



Just look at their faces! You'll want to cat-nap (kidnap) all of them home!


This one looks like the Macintosh Snow Leopard! Hehe! Can qualify as the next Apple's OS ambassador!
Snow Kitty~!



He's my favourite, because he kept going through the things in my bag, played with me,
& even slept inside my bag! Butttt... I had a hard time removing all his fur off my bag!

Okay, now to the food part... variety is not that wide though. However they're pretty good with their brewed teas!



Some brownies, served with Matcha Green Tea Ice-Cream on the side.


Non-Alcoholic Tiramisu! Okay, they are seriously not that fantastic as I thought they would be.
But, definitely affordable, say SGD$6.00 per serving?
We did not really have much of a choice as well, we couldn't possibly sit around and just play with their cats
without ordering anything. Heh!



The next time you're there, just order ONE DESSERT & probably a drink!




Honestly, it was pretty hard to find this place, as it was quite "hidden from sight".
Just hop onto a cab and tell the driver to head to Sukhumvit Soi 53,
& when you're along that street, just get the driver to SLOW down, and look out for these two!


Orrrrr... alternatively, just call the cafe & get them to direct the cab driver!

BEST EGGS BENEDICT, BY FAR








I don't know about you, but I'm kinda picky when it comes to ordering food. Many of my close friends would know that if they were to have a meal with me, I'd probably take at least the next 15-20 minutes to finalize my order.
Yes, finalize. Because I'm a really fickle-minded person when it comes to my food.
I love food that takes effort to be prepared and cooked - especially Asian cuisine!!

Dishes like Eggs Benedict...? I'm quite hesitant about that, because honestly I've tried whipping one up before and it didn't take rocket science knowledge to prepare!
But just the other day, my friends brought me down to Choupinette, where they claimed that it serves the one of the best eggs benedict in Singapore.
Initially, I was quite doubtful of their words, like...
I've already tried making my own poached eggs, what could be more difficult and tastier...?

Therefore, with much hesitation, I decided to give it a try, and since the cafe is pretty near my place!

And boy, I was so wrong! The poached eggs were full of flavor & the hollandaise sauce !
Oh! & I hate menus that don't provide photos! Haha!
Just a few photos of what we had for brunch!











All in all, the food was really good, but their service was nehhhhh.
I just thought that the whole experience could have been better if SMILED. Each time we call for service, it was as though they were scolded by us...?
#yougetwhatiamtryingtosay
BUT STILL, you guys have to give it a try!

Pssst..! Just don't order the 'add-on' like we did,
NOT WORTH YOUR BLOODY MONEY FOR FRUIT JUICE THAT ISN'T FRESHLY SQUEEZED!

T.G.I.F




Outfits seen are from H&M, Adidas & Nike!

I cannot be anymore grateful for this set of photos when I received them in my mail!
Pardon those sickly-faces,
as I had to get up at 8am for them to raid my place.
Thank you for having me, even though the write-up is a bit exaggerated and over-the-top? Haha!
