The Science of Korean Beauty TalkSo what happened three Saturdays ago?
Both Francesca and I indulged ourselves in an afternoon of interactive fun at a delightful high-tea session at Hilton (Singapore),
as we explored Korean Beauty trade secrets and also discovered the latest beauty trends in Korea!
Both of us were really excited even before we attended this event!
We even met up prior to the event to discuss about all the *ahem* PS, and of course the food!
Basically, the event hit it off with Dr Daniel touching on various skin problems,
like acne, scars, sagging skin, and how we can treat them.
He also touched on the 'Golden Ratio' of the human face & the importance of sunscreen.
It was definitely very beneficial as I never knew how important sunscreen lotions were and the various skin problems that we will face if we don't put on sunblock. After all, prevention is better than cure, right?
Dr Moses talked about the use of Botox and Fillers which can aid in achieving a more contoured face shape!
Today, the trend is the Korean V-shape! Hehe! Desired Korean V-shaped face through non-invasive methods! No need to go under the knife!
They also invited renowned chief plastic surgeon, Dr Jung Kwang Seup from Seoul, who educated us on the latest trends and treatments in Korea. Dr Jung Kwang Seup is also one of the medical advisors for Gangnam Laser Clinic so if you decide to seek further aesthetic or surgical treatments in Korea, Gangnam Laser Clinic provides Pre and Post Treatment Care to make the whole process a safer one.
Dr Jung was definitely entertaining, through every slides, all of us were so shocked that plastic surgery can literally be from head to toe!
Yes! There are people who have been very unsatisfied with their toes, and yeap, they actually underwent plastic surgery to correct them!
The event was sold out in 4 days, and we're really glad that we were invited to attend the talk!
It was definitely informative and I really learnt a lot about the different skin problems and treatments out there.
This is us, just pigging out!

Post Work-Trip Reflection.
dream life of being able to jet out of Singapore frequently,
and being able to work for myself.
Then, occasionally I get remarks like,
"I wish I could have your job!" or
"Your life so shiok leh, keep traveling."
Am I tired of traveling?
Yes, I am VERY tired.
But if it's for leisure, of course not!
As much as I say that I love my job,
but traveling to China/Hong Kong/Thailand for work,
can be very very exhausting.
Especially, when you feel unaccomplished.
Keeping things light here, because this blog is naked.
Haha, if you can manage to find my super secretive Livejournal which
I keep for blogging and penning thought personal thoughts and reflections,
then lucky you.
There I said it.
I’m scared of sounding ungrateful, but don't worry Sophia!
You're definitely not the cause of me feeling like that!
I'm glad this trip with you has happened too, because we just got to know
each other even better, and deeper! Can't wait for our next~!
And to SuperGurl, I hope you'll bless me with bigger fortune.
And to the 4 SuperGurls I have at work, thank you for helping me out
ALL THE TIME!
And to the special you & my family, thank you all
for always being so supportive & encouraging.
I must say that I've been blessed.
Let's keep fighting for the last quarter of 2014!

Radio Frequency Treatment Bio Beauty Aromatic Spa by Irene Teo
I was born with a pretty wide jaw, and it looks like a bread.
& to up keep my V-face, I have been going for Botox treatments for the past 3 years.
& the feeling of going for botox every 9 months irks me gradually.
Somehow, it did. Don't ask me why.
If you follow me on Twitter & Instagram, you would have known that
I have been doing Radio Frequency Treatment at Bio Beauty!
Lucky me! I got invited to Bio Beauty to try out their Radio Frequency (RF) Treatment!
I told the consultant my concerns, and she advised that I should make use of RF to help
get rid of my double chin, and round face.
What is Radio Frequency?
It's an energy treatment that is non-surgical & non-evasive to tighten loose or sagging skin.
Definitely ideal for people who either don't want,
or do not believe that they are old enough to undergo a surgical procedure!
Simply put, it can help to shape up your body parts such as face, arms, tummy, and thighs
to make them appear slimmer & sharper! Hehe!
Okay, firstly, lemme touch on the reasons why I have stopped going for Botox treatments as well.
Face Cleansing time!
Love this, as the therapist will help squeeze out all my white & blackheads.
One stone can kill two birds leh, what's not to love!
After the thorough cleansing of my face,
it's time to do face peeling!
It helps to get rid of my dead skin.
Oh, dyou know that your facial skin renews itself every 28-30 days?
This is why, it's important for everyone to go for regular facials!
Hehe, gotta quickly snap a photo before I fall asleep!
Don't worry, it's not hot at all, just warm!
Probably about 10 degrees? Heh.
One session takes about an hour!
15 minutes of cleansing facial,
and 20 minutes of RF 'rubbing' treatment on each side.
And know what? Every session, I will never fail to fall asleep.
E V E R Y S E S S I O N. *SWEAR*
And this I know why!
My cute therapist, Momo, says that the warm energy from the treatment
makes it comfortable for the face. ;) It's true, somehow lah!
Almost done! Almost done!
Gingseng mask to help cool the face down and hydrate your face!
See? One stone killing 3 birds now!
So you might ask. Are the effects instant?
After 1 session, do not expect drastic changes, but you'll definitely see a difference!
A slimmer and sharper face (that's if you're doing it on the face).
And Momo mentioned that the face will get slimmer after 1-2 days!
Hehe, this is Momo! She's uber cute and patient,
cos I asked a lot of stupid questions,
and made her talk cock with me, until I fell asleep.
Since it's a treatment, it just HELPS you to earn the shape,
not to lose weight or permanently you'll be skinny.
If you decide to not control your diet, then it's very likely that your face will grow fatter.
And finally, the most important part.. Price & Deals.
Don't worry, I promise it's much cheaper than Botox
because each jab is about SGD$800!

Gangnam Laser Clinic
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.
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!
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!

I don't know about you guys, but this is what I get myself to do every week.
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.
