ELLE/DIOR Workshop

Registered myself as one of the participants of ELLE/DIOR Skin Perfect workshop @ Dior Beaute Boutique, ION Orchard.


Light refreshment was  served to me once I got myself seated...


 All the DIOR participants enjoyed the yummy foodies before the workshop commenced...


ELLE's beauty editor - Vanessa Chia, she shared with us some beauty tips and the latest make-up trends and in-look for Fall/Winter seasons...

Straight after the talk given by Ms Vanessa Chia, our hands-on workshop kicked off...

During the workshop, I was attracted to this DIOR product - Skin Flash... This concealer gives better coverage to my dark spots on my face. Easy to blend on my face and it gives a natural finish.


Each participant was entitled to a goody bag, we picked it up after the workshop... Thanks Dior for the wonderful make up techniques!


I was so happy that the latest DIOR SKIN FOREVER compact powder with SPF25 PA++ was inside the goody bag...


Flawless perfection skin-fusion powder that melts evenly into the skin like a cream for a ultra-smooth and silky evenly complexion all day long.  

 Many thanks to ELLE Singapore for selecting me to be part of the workshop. 'LIKE' ELLE Singapore on Facebook to latest news on special events and promotion/offers...

Well spent!


My first time to KU DE TA (level 57) - Skypark of Marina Bay Sands Hotel. It is one of the roof-top clubs in Singapore. I was here at KU DE TA as they were having a Grey Goose event by Midnight shift. The cover charge of SGD50 was waived.


Mischievous Hong Peng (HP) check-ed in Facebook... OMG! Take a peep what he posted in Facebook.


The intertior of the club was pretty cool, Night skycraper was great too.

Let me end my post with 2 nice scenery photos taken from KU DE TA...I do really have to admit that our homeland, Singapore really looks very magnificent at night. I am proud to be a Singaporean!


Baby seemed to love this place as he added KU DE TA in his list, and he told me he will come back again for some chill-out... I will tag along  and enjoy my drink and great view from the top.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

All my friends have been raving about this eatery place located at Mandarin Gallery, they are famous for their chewy ramen with rich broth. Linda & I decided to have our lunch @ Ippudo SG on a random weekend...

Extract from Ippudo SG's website... A modern ramen brasserie experience where diners can enjoy many types of authentic Japanese dishes before tucking into a bowl of hearty ramen. Ippudo is the only ramen restaurant in Singapore that produces its own noodles and soup. Indeed impressve!

Made from the best flour, different types of noodles are being produced for different ramen dishes to ensure the perfect balance of noodles and soup. Ippudo’s famed tonkotsu broth is produced from an elaborate process of cooking pork bones for more than 20 hours, then blending the broth from three cooking stages to achieve a creamy, delicate soup with a light aroma.


We placed our ordered ... We ordered 2 signature ramen from the menu.

Linda ordered Shiromaru Motoaji


I had the Akamaru Kasaneaji... Ippudo’s tonkotsu soup base is free of the usual smell of pork with a light aftertaste. I really love the broth. Nothing can describe the tastiness. I simply enjoy every bit of the soup.

The damage was SGD35-ish.... I will definitely patron back in the future for ramen fix.

Dinner Fix @ The Eastern Restaurant

Met with HP & Shu Qing after my Dior event.... 'Brudder' (brother in German), HP suggested to go The Eastern Restaurant @ Centrepoint for dinner...

Here we are at  The Eastern Restaurant...

We ordered 3 main courses for ourselves...



Another 3 side dishes to go with our meal...


Woo.... I love this dish loads! The Steamed Wantons tasted great with the spicy vinegar sauce, but most importantly, it perked up my appetite!



The size of the 'Xiao Long Bao' is much smaller than other restaurants, but neverthless, They tasted as good as the reputable chinese restaurants... Definitely worth paying yet afforable!

The damage was SGD60-ish... Great dinner gathering with them :) Arrange again soon ^_^

Media Invite : 'SingaPop! - 50 years of pop music in Singapore'

'SingaPop! - 50 years of pop music in Singapore', a special tribute concert for musicians who have contributed to Singapore music industry for the past 50 years..

Organised by the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB) and partnering with our local popular celebrity, Dick Lee. 'SingaPop!' is held in conjunction with its 50th anniversary.

Thanks Karen for the media invite! I am very happy to be part of the celebration of EDB's 50th anniversary as well as 50 years of Singapore pop music.

This public concert was free of charge but was limited to a capacity of 5000 people. It was fully sponsored by leading corporations and major Singaporean companies.

The venue was at the Promontory @ Marina Bay... Dick Lee divided the concert into 5 different eras, each era representing a decade.

In each era, the audience was presented with the music trends for that decade, it showcased the development of Singapore's pop music over the last 50 years.

'SingaPop!' gathered some Singapore most talented and veteran singers such as Dick Lee, Ling Xiao, Sakura Teng, Lee Wei Song, Kit Chan, Taufik Batisah and etc…

The concert started around 8pm... Belinda and Daniel Ong were the hosts for the day, They stirred up the surrounding atmosphere with their hosting... I was pretty impressed by the way they controlled the crowd…

Waiting anxiously for the concert to begin...

As I mentioned above, the concert was divided into five different era - The 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, and the 21st century and the finale performance with all the artistes on stage...



The concert began with the opening act of 50 years of dance styles with a special remix of six songs...

Into the first act - 1960s... The 'A-GO A-GO' Yippies!

Sakura Teng - 牧童之歌

The second act - 1970s... Into an era of country music!

Ling Xiao - 可爱的人生
Finally my era - 1980s... Catchy tunes were the catch for that era.

Lee Wei Song, Rachel Chua and 大风吹 - 情话, 魅力乐章 早安!老师 (medley)
Of course the 1990s - The recognition era for Singapore's music industry.
Kit Chan - 心痛

Tay Kewei - 城里的月光


Dick Lee, Najip Ali and Sheikh Haikel - Rasa Sayang

OM! The songs brought back a lot of my childhood memories. I love the sing-along feeling with the singers... A sweet nostalgia nite for me! Let us continue the rest of the acts... Sorry for interrupting due to my sentimental memories.
The fifth act - The 21st Century... I feel that the music from the new century era has a better music arrangement.
Ah-DO - 他一定很爱你
Taufik Batisah - Sesuatu Janji
Olivia Ong - 如燕
By2 - 大人的世界
The concert successfully ended with the finale performance of 'Home' by all the artistes on stage. Yes! Indeed, a sing-along and wildest night for all the audience (including myself)

 'SingaPop! - 50 years of pop music in Singapore' will be broadcast on Sunday, 18 September on Channel U at 9pm.
