Hollywood After Party

Weekends are always happy and last weekend was fab especially with the Hollywood After Party at Universal Studios Singapore! Finn, Sinsin, A and I wanted to unwind at a new place with live music and drinks, so after doing some research, we ended up at the Hollywood After Party! What attracted me at first was the $33 free flow (because everyone needs a good beer over the weekend)! but when I heard that there will be a huge stage set up with some awesome live bands like Goodfellas, BeatRoots and Common People, I was blown away. I love live music, and I’m sure having a life band at a place like Universal Studios Singapore would definitely mean good audio systems! Just in case you are reading this and you are itching for a good night out with your friends, let me tell you more about where to get the tickets first. Haha! Entry to Hollywood After Party is at $20 nett, and that includes one drink. You can also top up $13 for the All …

Decade of Love

The previous weekend was totally fab! A and I were made busy (but happily) preparing for Lianie dear’s big day! Before I share the golden couple’s pictures on their ROM day, here are some pictures we took for them. The two of them are the funniest ever! Haha. The ROM was a simple but beautiful gathering of family and friends at Fort Canning. Lianie wanted a white wedding so she got all of us to turn up in white. But of course, no one will be as stunning as my beautiful friend! Hsean Hsean as the adorable flower girl! And the rest of us! I love my white eyelet blouse from Runway Bandits! Super comfortable to be in! I hardly wear clothes of such cut, I hope it doesn’t look weird on me. Love love it! πŸ˜€ Look at Rykiel’s face! SO CUTE! And more pictures! Everyone wants a picture with the bride! Heh. Happy we manage to steal her for a couple of pictures! :p Thirsty bride. Haha. And more time for us to …

You’ve been Phuket-ed!

All thanks to The Glamourous Factory, A and I were all prepped up after weeks of hard work! This cosy little space tucked away in a small corner is going to be your best friend, especially if you are one of those who works in the CBD area. We visited The Glamourous Factory last week and each enjoyed a pampering facial! I also tried eyelash extension for the first time in my life (it really isn’t as uncomfortable as I’ve been told!) The Glamourous Factory not only do facial treatments but also a whole array of other services like nails, waxing, ear candling, IPL, and many more! It’s just a stone’s throw away from my favourite Amoy Street Food Centre and it’s so convenient to just pop by to get a treatment the next time I’m in the CBD area! Yay! πŸ˜€ They are currently having an Opening Special which will end on 30th November 2012 and Christmas promotions are also on. I always liked how I can find treasures like that. πŸ™‚ Don’t forget …

Christmas Wishlist

As Christmas is drawing near day by day, it’s time to be a smart girl (or boy) and beat the shopping crowds! Having such a busy schedule lately, I have decided to get all the Christmas gifts I need this year at Jipaban! And it’s great for lazy people like me because they also have a Christmas Gift Guide which categorizes the gift and makes life a lot easier for me! And of course, to reward myself for being such a good girl this year, I’ve made up a little Christmas wishlist for myself too. Hahaha! *drop hints to friends* WHAT I WANT THIS CHRISTMAS! Everything from household items to apparels to useless but fun things. πŸ˜€ Jipaban is also having a Christmas Giveaway where shoppers get to share their Christmas wishlist on the Jipaban Facebook Page and one lucky winner will be chosen by Jipaban every week to give them an item in their wishlist! (items to be from Jipaban website only). Now we know who the real Santa Claus is. :p Starting making …

Chye Seng Huat

Popped by my JC friend, Evelyn’s new shop Hareway last week! The store is really pretty and by the name of her store, guess what Hareway sells? If you guessed IPL machines, then *bingo* you’re right! πŸ˜€ I’ve never really tried IPL before and when Evelyn approached me and ask me to try out one of these machines, I was thrilled! (A was thrilled too heh!) The store is really pretty and comfortable! They have three main machines and they are all quite different. This first one is good for smaller areas like upper lip, etc and also suitable for men who want to tidy up their moustaches. And this two are more suitable for general uses and for bigger areas – legs, underarms, bikini area etc. And the one in the picture above is the one I brought home! Each set comes with lotions and other complementary products too. For first time users like me, Hareway also provides training! Look at the poster in their training room, so cute! Can’t wait to try it …

Grammah

It has been a CRAZY weekend for The Tiramisu Hero! A and I have been running around like mad monkeys for the last week to prepare our new corner in Grammah at Haji Lane. YES! The Tiramisu Hero is now stocking up at Grammah at 66 Haji Lane now. Although not all of our products will be made available there, it is still great news for us because it means our customers now have a place to go to if they want to grab some last minute tiramisu! We only have a small corner in the shop but it was still sufficient to make the two of us super busy. Partly because we decided to doodle the wall at our corner! After some final touchups, here is the final look of our little The Tiramisu Hero corner! πŸ˜€ We also did up a new menu for the shop as you can see in the pictures above. And also decided to take a few new product pictures! From now on, Tutti, Momma & NonnaHero will be …

Coming out

I’d recently learnt of the Take Action! Contest by Oogachaga. It’s a contest which invites all individuals or groups who aspire to make a positive difference to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning community in Singapore to submit an original idea for their own programme. And this inspired me to tell you about my story. I once heard a saying that goes β€œThe naked truth is always better than the best dressed lie”. Although we all know that the truth is not always rosy and nice, living in a lie would probably be the most depressing and unhappy thing I can imagine. I had lived in denial for certain things in life before, but when it comes to realizing who I am and coming to terms with my sexuality, I am proud I took the courage to embrace and accept who I am inside. A and I have been together for about a year and a half now. Looking back, it all still feels surreal about how we evolved from schoolmates who only kept …
