Guest Speaking for Mrs. Singapore

Recently, I was delighted and honoured to be given a wonderful speaking opportunity as part of the 2018 Mrs. Singapore & Classic Mrs. Singapore Pageant Press Conference and Talent Showcase and Mini Carnival, held in conjunction with Down Syndrome Association (DSA), at One KM Mall. There, I was invited to share my experience as both a Mrs. and Mummy and how I manage my business role as a mother to make life work together. It was truly special, as this year marks the 20th edition of the Mrs Singapore pageant.

Since the pageant is co-organised by Exclusive Resources Marketing Pte Ltd (ERM) and the Down Syndrome Association (DSA), which makes this year’s pageant all the more meaningful. The event consisted of back-to-back activities and performances by the Mrs. Singapore & Classic Mrs. Singapore 2018 finalist, a fashion show by our reigning Queens, a cooking demonstration by Mayer, as well as, a performance by the children of DSA.

Welcoming applicants from ages 25 to 44 for the Mrs. Singapore category, and ages 45 and above for the Classic Mrs. Singapore category, this is the only married woman contest to give wonderful and remarkable women an opportunity to represent Singapore! I really appreciate how this pageant gives a very meaningful and valuable platform to empower women of today to not only take on the role as a wife and as a mother, but also to embrace and manage them well, while taking on other roles in life.

In my presentation, I explained some key pointers on better time management, such as positive affirmation, visualization, and taking action. Positive affirmations are an excellent and effective way to remind yourself of your goals and work towards them even subconsciously. Whilst visualisation and taking action encompass envisioning yourself as well-organised and efficient before putting those thoughts into action. With these simple yet effective methods, anyone can achieve better time-management.

It was indeed such an honour for me to grace the press conference for Mrs Singapore & Classic Mrs Singapore 2018, and to be in the presence of talented & beautiful individuals tonight. Women of today are empowered to not only take on the role as a wife and as a mother, but to embrace life’s changes and manage them well.

I also want to extend kudos to the dedicated committee of @ermsingapore for successfully organizing this pageant & it’s 20th anniversary celebration#inspiredtobeaninspiration. Thanks as well  to  #mrssingapore2018 #mrssingapore #mrssg2018 #orchidcountryclub #beautifullovewedding #mithesalon #celevenusaesthetic!

Kumoya x Tokidoki Cafe | Birthday Celebration With My Unicorns

Each passing year is another year worth cherishing and celebrating. Recently, I’ve had the pleasure to dine with my sweetest unicorns at the highly-anticipated Kumoya x Tokidoki Pop-up Cafe as part of my early birthday celebration. As a fan girl of Tokidoki kawaii unicorno with Donutella & her friends, I was thrilled to be on a date to the world’s first Tokidoki Cafe!

Tokidoki Cafe sg

The cafe’s interior is thoughtfully designed with the Tokidoki  characters and decals that seems to come to life on the walls. The entire cafe is perfectly decorated to house the eye-popping aesthetic and criminally cute characters. The strategically poisitioned Tokidoki unicorno plushies also seemed like a row of welcoming ushers to the highly-anticipating guests.

Editing On The Go

Having to grapple with work, meetings and mummy duties, I like to ensure my daily journey on-the-go is maximised in the best way possible. When it comes to updating my social media, being able to edit my photos on the go has helped me to utilise my time so much more efficiently! Today, I would like to share with you some of my fave photo editing apps I use to create images best suited to my personal style.

There are actually a few editing apps that I use to achieve the colours that I like on my Instagram feed.

Weekend Getaway at Cassia Bintan

We’re always so busy nowadays that we hardly have time to take a break from our daily schedules. Just a while ago, I had the privilege to spend some quality time with my family and friends in the beautiful Cassia Bintan Resort.Cassia Bintan review

Cassia Bintan, which is just a short 45 minutes ferry ride from Singapore’s Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal, was magnificently luxurious to say the least! Welcoming us into the resort is a bright and cheery lobby setting. Their rooms are incredibly spacious and cozy, with all of the rooms having a fully-equipped kitchen. This made it so much easier and convenient for me to whip up meals for BabyC. I prepared yummy pumpkin, carrot and potato porridge for her during this trip.

BabyC’s Newborn Photoshoot

It felt like it was just yesterday when babyC came into our lives, and now she is all grown up! Every second, every minute that we share together is a gift we cherish deeply. Each photograph of hers is a timeless memory, a moment perfectly preserved in time. After sharing about her first birthday shoot with Fion Boon Photography, I just wanted to spend some time to recollect the experience of babyC’s first ever two-week photoshoot.

Look at that tiny bundle of love, our joy, our hope.

Fion, whose expertise lies in baby photography and newborn photoshoots, had wonderfully captured babyC’s two-week moments. She has been mentored by top photographers in newborn photography during her time in Melbourne. Now that she’s back in Singapore, she has set-up a photography service that specialises in baby photography shoots.

Chriselle’s Cake Smash Photoshoot

In the blink of an eye, our dearest babyC has turned one. Recollecting how we documented this special journey, I can’t help but think back on our baby’s first photoshoot experience with Fion Boon Photography.

We had actually shot with Fion when babyC was just 2 weeks old and I had really loved the simplicity and ingenuity of the photos. Now that babyC has turned one, we’re back again to capture her precious first year moments!

Having recently moved back to Singapore from Melbourne, Fion specialises in photographing babies around six to fourteen days old and has even been mentored by Melbourne’s top newborn photographers! I really appreciate Fion’s dedication and attention to detail as she plans with us and conceptualises the overall look of the shoot for us, ensuring that the entire preparation process went really smoothly.

Maternity Shoot at Honeyzpainthouse

How time flies! It is the start of a brand new year and I just wanted to spend some time documenting my pregnancy photoshoot journey with Honeyzpainthouse.

I was blessed with a pretty easy time for the memorable nine months, with the luxury of time to take a good shower, put on day / night skincare and even indulge on hair pampering sessions. Ooo… those were the good ol’ days.

Beauty Regime with Neutrogena Fine Fairness Light Mask

How long has it been since you took time out for a short break during your busy schedule?
 Day in and out, we often struggle to balance between our many roles as a mum, daughter, daughter-in-law, sister, friend and tend to neglect our skincare routine.

Today, I’m going to do a review and tutorial on the Neutrogena range of skincare products and the newly launched Neutrogena Fine Fairness Light Mask. Everything is simply fuss-free, 10 minutes is all you need to pamper and rejuvenate your skin!
