Reset Button

It’s been a long time since I’ve touched this page. The love of writing died along side when I got busy at work. Blog got cluttered up with obligations instead of things I truly love or cared for. I guess the toughest place to stand is a Public Relations Practitioner who is also a Blogger.

As the title suggest, yes, I’m hitting the RESET button.

I’m saying good bye to the industry that gave me so much love, encouragement and friendship. Sudden departures are harder to accept, but I think the recent unfortunate incidents were a blessing in disguise. After all, everything happens for a reason right?

I’ll be looking for rainbow, stars, magical unicorn and all things nice for the time being. If you have any idea where to find them, give me a tinker. Catch up if you haven’t in a long time…

Till the next adventure… Stay fabulous!

Internet AhLong Photobucket P500

Like how they promise you it would be easy, seamless and free. I believed and kept on borrowing. My bills ranked up. In the past 10 year of blogging, I just kept borrowing. I should have seen this coming but, you were so convincing. I even introduce my friends to your services.

Now I regret deeply.

Without any warning, you started splashing “red paint” aka ransom demand all over my blog. “Please update your account to enable 3rd party hosting For important info, please go to:” Photobucket, 你 Jin Buay Steady Lor!
Photobucket P500

In a moment of panic, I wanted to pay off this ransom. Frantically went onto Photobucket to find that the only package that allows 3rd party hosting will set me back $399.99 annually or $33.33/month WHEN IT WAS FREAKING FREE TO BEGIN WITH!

Photobucket P500, read in between the lines!

Yes the archives of this blog is going to look like shit because of Photobucket P500 ransom demand. But I don’t freaking give a damn! #BoycottPhotobuck

Photobucket, You’re definitely not twisting my arm for that money! NO WAY!

Castelle de Beaute | Botox without needles!

Located at a stone throw away from Jurong East MRT station, Castelle de Beaute is a cozy salon smacked right in the middle of the busy heartland. I read with interest in regards to a new facial treatment that they are launching that combines both eastern and western techniques to achieving the best “V” face shape results, so I took the journey to the west.

My therapist greeted me at the door and brought me up to the treatment room. She did the norm of double cleansing, exfoliating, followed by extraction.

She continued on with a radio frequency machine, carefully sculpting and lifting my skin penetrating the deeper tissues for better results. A blend of essential oil (Neroli Essential Oil, Rosemarry oil & Grape seed oil) was applied, followed by the therapeutic gua sha facial. The warm herbal mask that follows up next has to be my absolute favorite part of the entire treatment!

My therapist remain friendly and warm as she patiently explains the process of the entire treatment. Did you know that gua sha facial is also known as the oriental botox? Watch this video to find out more…

“It’s time to try
defying gravity
I think I’ll try
Defying gravity
Kiss me goodbye
I am defying gravity
And you won’t bring me down!”

Exactly how I was feeling throughout the 90 mins of EastWest RF Sculpt & Lift Facial Treatment from Castelle de Beaute; Defying Gravity! 😆 Lifted jawline, refined and lifted cheeks, decreased eye wrinkles, reduced dark eye ring and more radiant skin! Suddenly felt 5 years younger on my skin.

Just Did It! | Dermal Fillers at Halley Medical Aesthetics

Halley Medical Aesthetics
I’ve decided on dermal fillers after my consultation with Dr. Terrance from Halley Medical Aesthetics. Although no one has openly question about my needs for fillers, but I know there are some kaypo people out there who are interested to know why I’m doing it.

“she’s not that ugly what, why she needs fillers?”
I do not live in the world of what ifs and I’ve always been open to experiencing new things. Motherhood should not spell the end of loving oneself and looking great! Instead of tearing one another apart, women should embrace, empower and seriously judge less! If you’re still interested to know more about dermal fillers for nose and tear trough, read on…

Dr Terence did a great job in explaining about dermal fillers and what it could do for me. On top of that, I did my due diligence and conducted extensive research on the subject matter before making my decision.

Dr. Terence Tan Busted Botox & FIllers Myths!
Tear Trough & Nose Fillers at Halley Medical Aesthetics

I asked him several questions that I’ve had some concerns with. And he patiently explained to me

Me: My nose button is the worst kind of nose for fillers right? *Almost feeling hopeless*
Dr. T: Actually, button nose is a good candidate for nose fillers. It’s all about proportion of the overall look.

Me: Ok that’s a relief to know. Also, I heard that once u start on Botox and fillers, you can’t stop?
Dr T: *Wide smile* No, it’s not true because with the advancement of medical technology, they last longer.

Me: What if you don’t like it the way you look after you had fillers done?
Dr. T: Oh not to worry at all. If you don’t like the final outcome of the hyaluronic filler, you can have them dissolved or top up the fillers to attain, say, the height of the nose bridge or sharpness of the chin that you like.

Me: *Feeling assured and all geared to go!*

Tear Trough & Nose Fillers with Hyaluronic Acid FIllers from Juvederm
Tear Trough & Nose Fillers at Halley Medical Aesthetics

The most popular filler worldwide is hyaluronic acid. It is a compound found naturally in our body and is in charge of retaining water to hydrate the skin. Afterall, it’s not a permanent process, dermal fillers usually last for a year or 2 and if I really don’t like it, Dr. Terence could easily dissolve it too.

Dr. Terence suggested using 2 different types of dermal fillers. Juvederm Voluma is a firmer type of fillers which is perfect for my close to non-existence nose bridge. While Juvederm Volbella, the softer kind of fillers, will be sandwich together with Juvederm Voluma for the tear trough area.

Before the actual procedure started, Dr. Terence lathered on numbing cream. While we’re waiting for the cream to do its magic, we were LIVE on Facebook! Many thanks to Mabel who came all the way down to give me moral support though she is extremely fearful of needles!

Here we go!

After the numbing cream has taken effect, Dr. Terence carefully wipe the residue away.

Apart from numbing cream, the area will also be further numbed with an ice pack to reduce pain, swelling and bruising! Loving the extend they would go to minimise any discomfort.

Nothing impresses me more than a honest business! I love how they open up the new boxes right in front of my eyes, so at least I know I’m not using someone else’s leftover fillers!!

Dr Terence carefully injected the fillers into my under eye area and nose bridge, stopping occasionally to ask if I’m satisfied with how it looked. He was helpful by expressing his professional opinion as well.

Picture above might look slightly intimidating, but in actual fact, I felt no pain at all. Apart from numbing cream and icing the injection site, Juvederm contains lidocaine which is a local anesthetic agent. A blunt micro-cannula (magic needle) is also used to distribute fillers more evenly with promises of practically no pain and bruising.

The entire procedure was done in under 30 minutes. Dr. Terence assured me that the fillers will settle in and look more natural in the next couple of days. Honestly, I wasn’t too bothered. I ate bak kut teh opposite the clinic and even shopped at Liang Court.

Ta dah!

Check back next week to see how the tear trough and nose fillers look after it’s settled in and read about my after-thoughts.
