Gangnam Laser Clinic
I'm pretty sure most of us here have tried all sorts of 'self-treatment' for our bumpy / scars-filled / pores-filled face
by using different kinds of creams and pills that have claimed to work.
Honestly speaking, I believe that all these creams and pills do work,
but they will definitely take more than a year or even years to achieve your desired results.

Not sure about you, but I'm quite an impatient boy. I have all sorts of face 'tonic' sitting in the toilet table top,
and I have been religiously slapping them onto my face day and night,
popping collagen pills every morning and night for the past two years.
I have also tried all sorts of treatment like diamond peeling, Vitamin C jabs, and even whitening drips.
Uhh yeah, I used to have an almost-flawless skin, but b'cos I had to serve national service for 2 years,
and then that's when things turned hay-wire.

Okay, so Gangnam Clinic invited Francesca, Shijia and I to try out their Express Laser Facial
at their One Raffles Place branch!
Hehe, Gangnam Clinic has been around for quite awhile already,
and they believe in the Korean beauty philosophy that being radiantly beautiful
is an option to everyone - not just to a privileged few.

The entire experience was really pleasant, where we first had Dr Daniel Chang,
explained to us on how we should take care of our faces, the daily routine,
and how break-outs happen.

(No photoshop)

Consultation time after the nurse helped to cleanse my face!


It was a really casual introduction, oh! And I also told him my main concerns
- my clogged pores, and a few areas where they are bumpy!
Psst..! I really do not have a flawless skin :(



So along the way, Dr Daniel explained to me thoroughly on how the Express Laser Facial
can actually help my skin glow better and the step-by-step procedure.

These machines are the ones that will do the job! It will help treat common skin problems
like pigmentation, pimples, enlarged pores and allow our face
to restore its natural radiance in just a couple of minutes! Fast right?



Getting ready with my twist!



Safety goggles to protect my eyes!
You see that silver pen-like looking thing on my face?
It's the first laser (Lutronic) that helps with pores, pimples, and pigmentation!
Followed by the second laser (Lotus), not seen, which will help in toning,
stimulating collagen production, and of course a more glowy skin!



Definitely painless, just by looking at how I could still smile while Dr Daniel was working on my face.



The entire facial only took 10 minutes, woohoo done!
Scrutinizing my face to see if the laser treatment
from Laser Optek (a well-known Korean brand)
really works, and it really did! Hehe!



After the laser was done, I was shifted to another room to put on an
Ice Cool Mask (Hydro-Lifting mask),
that will help in firming, hydration and whitening!



I'm one person who cannot sit still, even for that 10 minutes, I walked around!
Here's Shijia who has also finished her treatment.
Bare face okay, so it shows that the Express Laser Facial works!


Another bare-faced #selfie, which looks a bit too fake right?
I know, but this is to second-prove that the treatment really worked for me!
Post Treatment, just waiting for the nurse to apply repair cream,
that will help replenish moisture.
And not forgetting the sunblock!


Happy Us!
I'm pretty sure you're quite convinced already!
The nurses even told us that it will get better over the next few days!

Heh, so some of you might ask, how long does this last?
It will last for about a month, and it also depends on your skin!
But no harm trying out since it's only SGD$48!
To look good for the next few weeks, why not???

Call now and book an appointment with Gangnam Laser Clinic
to experience a radiant and glowing face!
Price for the first trial is SGD$48 only!
Don't worry, they are not pushy on their packages!

Mega Jxx Wrap

So a few days ago, I started this crazy thing for wraps.
Came up with my own recipe (definitely not pro), but still, it tasted SO GOOD.
Can't wait to share my own recipe on the blog!

SELF-THOUGHTS

I don't know about you guys, but this is what I get myself to do every week.
Self-Reflect.
It is important that we make time for such sessions for ourselves once in a while,
because sometimes, more often than not, we get so hung up looking for praise outside of ourselves,
when really all that matters is that praise comes from within.

It's also good to jot down on a little piece of note, or even better on a notebook.
Then count 12 months down the road, when you read back, you'll actually laugh or smile about it.
It's really therapeutic like that.

BANGKOK - 24/7 CRAVINGS
















I've been to Bangkok for countless of times - for both work & leisure, and until now I still haven't gotten sick of it. Each time I go, there are always new spots and cafes for my friends and I to explore.
Travelling to Bangkok is as easy as crossing the borders from Singapore.
Can't wait for my trip to Bangkok next week. It's calling for meeeeeee....!

Oh, and hit me up on my e-mail, if you need any recommendations.
I've also decided not to be long-winded and blog about Bangkok,
because I really don't see the need to.

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!

The Prestige Eyebrow & Lash Specialist
Pacific Plaza, #03-08, 9 Scotts Road,
Singapore 228210

Phone - 6733 3369 / 6733 3379

Website - www.PrestigeEyebrow.com

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!
