Reclaim your Family Time using Smart Household Devices!

 

Recently I had the pleasure of attending LG Singapore #TakeALoadOff event launch to fully understand the usage of LG’s TWINWash™. And even got to understand more about how celebrity Mummies – Sonya D Sanchez and Joanne Peh handle Motherhood and their household chores ever so efficiently and gracefully.

Firsthand tips from beautiful mummies – Sonya D Sanchez & Joanne Peh

I was really impressed by the LG TWINWash™, a dual front load and mini washer that allows me to tackle #TwoLoadsAtOnce Now I don’t have to singlehandedly manage the household’s laundry, the whole family can finally team up and address our biggest laundry challenges every weekend!

And here’s 7 key reasons why I’m so in love with this baby!

lecinlurve, LGTWINWash, LGSingapore,
Really impressed by LGTWINWash™ #TwoLoadsAtOnce

I’ll share more about my favourite features in more detail below, but here’s what I first noticed about this double-washer system is the added height! No more bending over my back with heavy laundry bags. hehe…

lecinlurve, LGTWINWash, LGSingapore, #lecinlurve, #LGTWINWash, #LGSingapore, LGBlogreview, LGTwinWash Blog Review
Perfect height! No more back bending with heavy laundry bags.
1 – Dual Wash System

I can now wash a whopping 16kg in the unique dual washer system of the LG TwinWash™ Front Load Washer AND an additional 2.5kg in the Mini Washer at the same time!

Which means I can now wash all my sheets all at once whilst running a second smaller load in the Mini Washer. This really saves me so much time in managing my laundry load!

lecinlurve, LGTWINWash, LGSingapore, #lecinlurve, #LGTWINWash, #LGSingapore, LGBlogreview, LGTwinWash Blog Review
LGTWINWash™ – Dual wash system.
2 – TIME SAVING

Cut your laundry time in half! Now you can finish two loads of laundry in under an hour with LG TWINWash™.

lecinlurve, LGTWINWash, LGSingapore, #lecinlurve, #LGTWINWash, #LGSingapore, LGBlogreview, LGTwinWash Blog Review
Efficient laundry time in a shorter span of time.
3 – Add Ons – Anytime!

Now i can pause the machine to add more clothes which I love as I tend to miss out Chriselle’s soiled PJs which has only been lightly rinsed. All i have to do is press “Add Item” and add any laundry from my hubby’s stinky socks to her fave dress in whenever I need. Whichever washing cycle I select, door will be opened immediately (approx. 3 sec) during washing.

#TwoLoadsAtOnce
4 – TWINWash Mini

This is my favourite feature of the washing machine – The Mini Washer! As the name suggests, it’s a small washing machine that’s perfect for delicates or smaller loads. I can now do hubby’s soiled running gear, baby clothes or even just our undergarments. This has 7 wash programs – Light Soil, Underwear,  Lingerie, Baby Care, Speed Wash, Rinse + Spin and Spin only.

I even managed to get my 23 month-old baby to load her own laundry in this Mini!

lecinlurve, LGTWINWash, LGSingapore, #lecinlurve, #LGTWINWash, #LGSingapore, LGBlogreview, LGTwinWash Blog Review
23 month-old Chriselle could even load her own laundry into the Mini Washer! hehe ~
5 – TrueSteam™

Here’s another feature I would love to quickly touch on – The TrueSteam™ technology. It’s a function that can achieve an intensely deep yet gently cleanse. Working to remove stains on a microscopic level while leaving my loads fluffier and most importantly, I noticed that my laundry done in this mode helps minimize ironing time! How efficiently smart is this!? It’s also perfect for giving her stuff toys a DEEP CLEANSE without destroying the fluffy insides of all her precious friends.

lecinlurve, LGTWINWash, LGSingapore, #lecinlurve, #LGTWINWash, #LGSingapore
TrueSteam™ works really well for jackets & her stuff toys.
6 – TurboWash™

LG has also introduced some new innovation this year to improve the laundry experience. We can now expect a faster washing with LG enhanced TurboWash™ 2.0. It’s high pressure nozzles save 20 minutes per load! These nozzles spray a concentrated detergent solution directly with pressure on the clothes for faster soaking time. Also the TurboWash™ ’s combination of quick soaking water spray and filtration motion means washing time can be reduced to just 49 minutes, but with an improved powerful wash performance! Just what I need to tackle the tough stains on babyC’s clothes at a shorter span of time. YES to completing household chores the CLEAN and EFFICIENT way!

LG Enhanced TurboWash™ 2.0
7 – SMART WASHING WITH WI-FI CAPABILITY

SmartThinQ™ technology enables you to operate or monitor your laundry from anywhere, anytime. Download LG SmartThinQ™ app and sync to your home’s Wi-Fi network. This smart app lets you remotely start, monitor and even inform you the end of your wash cycle from your smartphone. I can now plan my laundry even from my office.  It also has a diagnosis feature to help identify and trouble shoot with you should you ever face any issues with the machine. How smart!

lecinlurve, LGTWINWash, LGSingapore, #lecinlurve, #LGTWINWash, #LGSingapore, LGBlogreview, LGTwinWash Blog Review
Now i can plan my laundry on the go.
My VERDICT

I was pleasantly surprised that The LG TWINWash™ far exceeded all my expectations of the machine! With the ability to manage 3 times the capacity of my previous washing machine, it is also able to run two separate loads at once! My favourite feature has got to be The Mini Washer. The mini helper has proved to be a real good help on days i need to do lesser laundry. I can now wash a lighter load and even separate coloured apparels without a hint of worry.

As we do not have a live-in helper, I’ve been getting 23 month-old Chriselle to be more involved with our household chores. The mini washer is at the perfect height for her to manage her own laundry bag without much supervision. I couldn’t be more thankful to have an extra pair of hands to help out around the house with a smart, efficient and easy-to-use washing machine!

lecinlurve, LGTWINWash, LGSingapore, #lecinlurve, #LGTWINWash, #LGSingapore, LGBlogreview, LGTwinWash Blog Review
With laundry all done, it’s time to chill with her fave Ice Cream!

 

Most importantly LG  TWINWash™  #TwoLoadsAtOnce ability has saved me precious time spent on my weekly laundry time, allowing more time for my family!

Twinning Mum & Baby Top – Toddley Thoughts [chriselle10 – 10%]

Sculptra Review – Achieving a youthful look with Celevenus, Sculptra

They say that women, like wine, gets better with age.
Well, even fine wine needs to be kept under the right conditions to become what they are.
Now that I am in my late-30’s, and especially so after the birth of Chriselle, I noticed that the sides of my cheeks have started to become shrunk in and my laugh-lines are getting more prominent.

I’ve often felt that these area of concerns make me look tired-looking and worn-down.
I longed for a treatment to add a bit of volume to my face, and give it some contour & definition.

Celevenus aesthetic, Celevenus Review, Cindy, Dr Dylan Chau, Lecinlurve, Sculptra Review, Sculptra SgThis is my end result. 1 year after 3 sessions of Sculptra treatment administered.

Eradicating a tired look and achieving a well-rested face has always been a constant challenge for me
until I was introduced to Celevenus Wellness and Aesthetic.

Celevenus aesthetic, Celevenus Review, Cindy, Dr Dylan Chau, Lecinlurve, Sculptra Review, Sculptra SgThis was taken in May 2017 before my Sculptra treatment. Notice the sunken line / area at my jowl and prominent laugh lines.

Celevenus aesthetic, Celevenus Review, Cindy, Dr Dylan Chau, Lecinlurve, Sculptra Review, Sculptra Sg

I scheduled a session with the highly-respected Dr. Dylan Chau.

With over 10 years of hands-on experience in Sculptra (Polylactic Acid injection), creating a more youthful look through volume replacement, whilst reducing wrinkles and skin laxity and also specializes in threads and has taken them through another level of innovations. Dr. Dylan Chau is also a renowned Trainer and Key Opinion Leader for Sculptra and Thread Lift in Singapore, India, Russia and South East Asia.

The well-respected Dr. Dylan is also involved in the developing of threads used for thread lifting with his Korean counterparts and works closely them in pioneering new threads and advanced techniques in face lifting and HIKO nose augmentation. Dr. Chau also takes pride in solving dermatological problems ranging from pigmentation, acne scars and enlarged pores — rejuvenating and adding a touch of radiance to dull skin through his array of treatments

Dr. Dylan sits on the board of pioneers in its field, and is also a Sculptra trainer for doctors; taking his anti-aging treatments to a whole new realm! He is also an expert in augmenting the nose, chin, cheeks, lips as well as contouring the face that is best suited for his patients.

Therefore I know I’m in the best hands for this anti-aging treatment! 

Why is Sculptra needed?

As we age, we experience global volume loss of internal facial tissues, very much like a balloon slowly deflating. Our skin tend to lose its thickness and elasticity, inevitably resulting in the occurrence of wrinkles, development of folds and skin laxity with overall saggy appearance. 

A thorough research shows that Sculptra is the best in the world when it comes to replacing volume loss.

What is Sculptra?

Sculptra is an injectable volumising treatment that utilises poly-L-lactic-acid to stimulate the build up of the body’s own collagen.
It is an FDA-approved, clinically-proven treatment that can smooth deep lines, wrinkles, folds and restores facial volume lost to the body’s natural ageing process.

The improvement is gradual, long-lasting and gives you an entirely natural-looking fuller face.

Clinical studies have shown that the results last for two years after the final treatment has been completed, significantly longer than other injectable treatment.

Most importantly, the result looks and feels more natural than what fillers can do, and can potentially last twice as long!

Celevenus aesthetic, Celevenus Review, Cindy, Dr Dylan Chau, Lecinlurve, Sculptra Review, Sculptra SgCelevenus aesthetic, Celevenus Review, Cindy, Dr Dylan Chau, Lecinlurve, Sculptra Review, Sculptra Sg
These were taken on June 2017 on the day after my first session of Sculptra treatment!

Verdict : I love the after effect : 100 percent!

Pain level for me was at 1/10.

The patient and very friendly staff of Celevenus applied the numbing cream for me and we chatted till it was time for the non-invasive procedure.

There was basically zero downtime for me for my first Sculptra session.

As I wasn’t much of a bruiser, I only suffered jab marks which a good concealer could easily hide.

These  were taken 2 mths after my first Sculptra treatment. Typically it takes about 3 sessions (with an interval of 3-4mths in between sessions) to see the best results of Sculptra on oneself.

Celevenus aesthetic, Celevenus Review, Cindy, Dr Dylan Chau, Lecinlurve, Sculptra Review, Sculptra Sg

My second treatment was administered 5 months later, Nov 2017.

This was taken just a few days after the treatment.
I really liked the softness and fuller contour that Sculptra offered my tired-looking face without feeling like I’ve overdone my face.

I must say i was falling in love with this natural, non-surgical, non-invasive face enhancer for a more well-contoured face.

Celevenus aesthetic, Celevenus Review, Cindy, Dr Dylan Chau, Lecinlurve, Sculptra Review, Sculptra Sg Celevenus aesthetic, Celevenus Review, Cindy, Dr Dylan Chau, Lecinlurve, Sculptra Review, Sculptra Sg

The process is simple and non-invasive.

Anaesthetic cream is first applied to numb my face so I don’t have to feel the “sensation” of needles pricking my face. Then Dr. Dylan assessed my face for potential sunken areas of concerns. 

Note my jowl line area, laugh lines and underbags – they were also the main areas of concern to me. hehe.. so Dr Dylan highlighted them in white pencil and worked on them.

Celevenus aesthetic, Celevenus Review, Cindy, Dr Dylan Chau, Lecinlurve, Sculptra Review, Sculptra SgThis was Day 1 of my 3rd Sculptra session on May 2018. 

I waited for a good 6 mths in between my 2nd to 3rd treatment as it lasted me really well after my 2nd session.

Celevenus aesthetic, Celevenus Review, Cindy, Dr Dylan Chau, Lecinlurve, Sculptra Review, Sculptra SgThis was at several hours after my final Sculptra session.

Celevenus aesthetic, Celevenus Review, Cindy, Dr Dylan Chau, Lecinlurve, Sculptra Review, Sculptra Sg

For my third Sculptra treatment, i was really glad to be introduced to Sinecch, a surgical recovery set of pills.
Clinically proven to reduce bruising and swelling.
Used commonly by doctors for pre and post surgery for speedy recovery.

The warm and friendly pretty staff at Celevenus briefed me on this supplement and I took up the offer readily to prevent any potential bruise or swell.

Please note that Sinecch serves to only reduce the bruise and swell not to curb them completely.

This was Day 2 from my final Sculptra session only slapping sunscreen and loose powder over my face.
Highlighted my slight bruise to show you the slight bruise marks which a good concealer could easily cover.

In my case, Sinecch proved to be of a very good help to me this time round.

Sculptra , Celevenus, lecinlurve

Ageing is a fact of life. And it usually shows most on our faces. Sculptra, or ‘liquid facelift’, is a unique facial injectable that replaces collagen lost during the ageing process.
Most importantly, it is scientifically designed to stimulate natural collagen growth and lasts more than two years. 

This makes Sculptra very different from traditional dermal fillers.

The results are gradually reduced fine lines, wrinkles and folds, producing a natural-looking youthful look.

Yakult Media Trip with Cindy, lecinlurve

Big dreams in a small bottle.

These words prominently displayed at Yakult Central Institute encapsulate what every bottle of Yakult beholds and I was honoured and privileged  to be chosen as the first influencer from Singapore to embark on this educational trip to learn more about Yakult’s dreams!  To begin with, a big thank you to Yakult Singapore for hosting me!

lecinlurve, Yakult, Yakult media trip, Yakult Sg, Cindy

Day 1 – “Dr Minoru Shirota and Shirota-ism”

My first day of arrival, I was ushered to Yakult Japan HQ at Minato-ku to be introduced to our local host, and the many different kind of  products that the pioneer in probiotics drink has developed through the years.

lecinlurve, Yakult, Yakult media trip, Yakult Sg, Cindylecinlurve, Yakult, Yakult media trip, Yakult Sg, Cindy

 

Did you know that there are different Yakult products in different sizes in the various countries and Yakult even produces in-house beauty products, PARABIO series, that were infused with Shirota Essence and HB Hyaluronic acid born of Yakult’s research?

 A visit to Yakult Central Institute later in the day was an eye-opener and exceptionally educational as I learnt about Dr Minoru Shirota, the founder of Yakult.  Do you know that he is the first in the world in 1930 to succeed in culturing a fortified strain of lactic acid bacteria that is beneficial to human health and the bacterium was named “Lactobacillus casesi strain Shirota” after him?

lecinlurve, Yakult, Yakult media trip, Yakult Sg, Cindy

At the Institute, we were also briefed on his philosophy. The 3 key fundamental aspects of Yakult philosophy also known as Shirota-ism. This encompasses the concept of preventive medicine, a healthy intestinal tract leads to long life, and offering products at a price anyone can afford.

Dr. Minoru Shirota, M.D., Ph.D. Founder of Yakult, devoted his life to the research of preventive medicine. His goal was to contribute to the health of as many people as possible and he believed that the emphasis should be placed on preventing illnesses, rather than on treating illness once it develops. After many years of research, Dr. Shirota was successful in strengthening and culturing Lactobacillus casei strain Shirota, a strain of lactic acid bacteria that can reach the intestines alive and produce bacterial effects.

Beside learning that we can live healthier and longer simply by maintaining a healthy intestinal tract, I was heartened and in fact humbled to learn that Dr Minoru Shirota’s philosophy included brining good health to people at an affordable price.

lecinlurve, Yakult, Yakult media trip, Yakult Sg, Cindy

Here with my Singapore team on this enriching journey at Yakult Central Institute.

It has been 90 years since Dr. Shirota’s discovery and Yakult has continued to develop its business based on the philosophy of contributing to the health of people through pursuit of excellence in life science in life science, develop products based on that research and manufacture products under advanced quality management.

lecinlurve, Yakult, Yakult media trip, Yakult Sg, Cindy, Minoru Shirota

What a great and noble philosophy for a business entity to embrace.  I am therefore glad that Shirota-ism has withstood the test of time and continues to be carried on in the research and development activities at the Yakult Central Institute.  This facility is a door to the future.

So much to learn from a compassionate man …. ❤

Day 2 – Decked in my pastel pink fave frock from Ksisters and customised Lurve hat from TullelovebyGwen.

All set for today’s fun adventures!

lecinlurve, Yakult, Yakult media trip, Yakult Sg, Cindy, sisters, ksisterssg, tullelovebygwen

Today was a really exciting day ahead for us, as we were scheduled for a lunch tour at an elementary school, followed by a tour of Yakult Swallows’ professional baseball team facility!

lecinlurve, Yakult, Yakult media trip, Yakult Sg, Cindy

Ready? Let’s GO!

lecinlurve, Yakult, Yakult media trip, Yakult Sg, Cindy

Checked in at Shibuya Honmachi Gakuen Elementary School to learn more about Shokuiku – Japanese term for Food Education.

Dietary behaviour among elementary school students in Japan has recently become a cause of concern. Therefore, a Shokuiku (food & Nutrition education) program consisting of a series of lectures and practical sessions based on food nutrients & cultures are incorporated for the benefit of the students.

lecinlurve, Yakult, Yakult media trip, Yakult Sg, Cindy

Here with the Vice Principal of  Shibuya Honmachi Gakuen Elementary School and the pretty nutritionists at school. I would totally eat my greens and polish up all my food in the presence of the pretty ladies. I witnessed for myself how popular the pretty nutritionsts were with the pupils who were keen to present their empty plates and helping themselves to second servings!

So glad to witness a healthy dietary behaviour amongst the elementary students and of course, glad to see each and every student having a bottle of Yakult with their meal.

Do you know that since 2008, Yakult has been dispatching lecturers to elementary schools to give lectures on the topic of “early to bed, early to rise, eating breakfast and emptying your bowels in the morning” as part of Shokuiku?  I for one will try to remember this mantra “early to bed, early to rise, eating breakfast and emptying your bowels in the morning”.

lecinlurve, Yakult, Yakult media trip, Yakult Sg, Cindy

Next stop –  After yet another yummy lunch, this time at Kisoji Restaurant, we checked in at Yakult Swallows’ professional baseball team’s facility.

lecinlurve, Yakult, Yakult media trip, Yakult Sg, Cindy

8 countries, 37 representatives.

Thanks to Yakult for organising the immensely warm welcome by the country’s highly-adorned professional team!

Here with my fave fun bunch from the Singapore team!

Mr. Ryo Ohashi, Jennie from Prime Publishing and Xueqi from Sg Yakult.

lecinlurve, Yakult, Yakult media trip, Yakult Sg, Cindy

We even got to witness the professional players in practice.

What a privilege!

lecinlurve, Yakult, Yakult media trip, Yakult Sg, Cindy

I also learnt that The Swallows made history on June 14, 2009 by hitting 11 base-hits in consecutive at-bats.

The record was certified by Guiness World Record! In 2015, Tokyo Yakult Swallows won it’s first Central League pennant in 14 years. What a glorious victory it must have been for them!

It is interesting to note that Yakult Swallows is one of the many ways that Yakult is contributing back to the society, and in this instance, through promoting sport to people.  Yakult Swallows hold baseball clinics during offseason for primary and junior high school aged children with the aim of getting them to enjoy sports and the cherish good health through exchanges with professional baseball players.  I’m sure the professional baseball players will be able to influence a large number of the children to embark on a healthy and sporty lifestyle.

—————————————————————-

Day 3 – Today was an exceptionally fun day ahead! And it’s not everyday that I get to have the privilege of being a Yakult Lady – For a day! Woohooo ~

A Yakult lady performs an important role in delivering a very affordable probiotic dairy product to you and me everyday and helping us understand the benefits of Yakult.  This practice is also based on Shirota-ism, which include ideas like sincerity, harmony among people, and caring enough to make home deliveries.  Yakult lady deliver products to customers by hand with the sincere wish for their good health.
I grew up witnessing how my own neighbourhood lady would go from door-to-door to conscientiously deliver our weekly orders for several years! Here in Japan, more than 50% of Yakult products are distributed by Yakult ladies.

lecinlurve, Yakult, Yakult media trip, Yakult Sg, Cindy

Yakult Ladies visit customers with a smile and deliver products with sincerity. Home delivery by Yakult Ladies began in 1963 with the introduction of the Yakult Lady System, a distribution method unique to Yakult.

On my third day here, I had the privilege of understudying and assisting the super sweet and friendly super Mummy of 4 – including a pair of twins, Miki-san in her dispatch session. Her sweet demeanor and positive service attitude was such an inspiration to me. Even the sound of her voice rang like music to my ear.

lecinlurve, Yakult, Yakult media trip, Yakult Sg, Cindy

Having to maneuver the oncoming traffic and endure weather changes was really not as easy as it seems.  I was also surprised to see how Miki remembered each and everyone of her regular customers’ orders without hesitation. And by adopting a positive attitude and armed with sheer dedication for her job, Miki made me witness a Yakult lady’s hard work today.

My respect to the Yakult ladies on a new high level! ❤

Day 4 – Tour of Yakult Fuji-Susono Plant

lecinlurve, Yakult, Yakult media trip, Yakult Sg, Cindy

Took a 2-hour bus ride to the Mt. Fuji area to witness the meticulous production and manufacturing of the world’s pioneer in probiotics drink.

Some fun facts : Yakult has 12 plants in Japan

lecinlurve, Yakult, Yakult media trip, Yakult Sg, Cindy, Ryo ohashi

Yakult owns 12 production plants in Japan. For this particular state-of-the-art plant, it sits on a site area of 208,000 square metres and actually produces 1.2 million products per day! ~ This visit to Yakult Fuji-Susono plant not only shows me the efficiency in their production and how they emphasise production of products that are safe and of high quality, more importantly, I witnessed how Yakult undertake all these in an eco conscious manner, ensuring that they do their upmost to recycle, minimise waste, and reduce the impact to the environment in all that they do in the whole production process.  Once again, this is a testament that Shirota-ism is not merely a philosophy, but is actually being practiced. Kudos to Yakult.

lecinlurve, Yakult, Yakult media trip, Yakult Sg, Cindy

Yakult now operates in 38 countries and regions around the world, including Japan, with over 35 million of the company’s dairy products consumed each day.

It has indeed been a fun and enriching week for me!

It’s about time to head home…

And I could feel my heart skip a beat at the thought of my baby awaiting my return.

It’s indeed a joy and an honour for me to embark on this educational trip with Singapore’s team, being warmly welcomed as Singapore’s first social media influencer to come onboard this trip.

I take home with me a wealth of knowledge of the world’s pioneer probiotic cultured milk made with a special strain of the bacterium Lactobacillus casei Shirota. A popular health drink loved by 28 million people from 38 countries and regions. The drink has been proven using ‘strongest’ strains of beneficial bacteria, and has been shown to benefit human health. Free of preservatives, colourings and stabilizers.

I also took home with me the dreams that are within each and every bottle of Yakult that is being distributed around the world.

 The dream of helping everyone throughout the world enjoy healthier lives, the dream of delivering the irreplaceable joy of good health to people around the world.  And all these, packaged in a familiar small bottle, delivered with sincerity to you and me.

Bangkok Trip: Family, Friends, and Shopping (Of Course!)

Arrival

Having to juggle with my busy schedule, I rarely have the opportunity to go on a holiday for some quality time and fun with my loved ones. So, I’m really thankful to have been able to take time off recently for a family holiday getaway to Bangkok. It was a 5D4N trip from 21st to 25th April and Hubbz meant for me to fly out on my birthday for the trip. We flew to Bangkok on the B787 – Dreamliner which really set itself apart with its shadeless feature!

After we landed, we checked into our hotel, Novotel Platinum Pratunam . I really love its accessibility to the largest air-conditioned and clean shopping mall, making it really easy for us to frequently head back to our room to change BabyC’s diaper or to let her take a nap without much fuss. It also meant that everything was within close proximity which made it so convenient.We then freshened up in the room before I was directed to Octave as a surprise. Hubbz kept reminding us to leave the hotel at 4PM in a bid to catch the glorious sunset. I was super happy to catch one of the most beautiful sunsets at Octave, and to enjoy the fabulous views as well as the great amenities offered by the hotel.  It was also an opportunity to enjoy some new outfits, especially the comfort of my our twinning outfits by JumpEatCry and JOOP Denim Embroidery Off-Shoulder Dress (pictured below), while taking in the view!

Guest Speaking for Mrs. Singapore

Recently, I was 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.

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!

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.
