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, 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.

I was so impressed with the myriad of amenities and activities they had there. I absolutely loved their exclusive private beach. The sparkling clear blue-green seawater and the clear skies were the perfect backdrop to a lovely stroll along the beach. It was BabyC’s first time on a beach and she was having so much fun stepping on the sand! It fills my heart every time she achieves tiny milestones in life.

They had jet-skiing as well. Oh, I had so much fun trying to balance and steer the jet-ski! It was really a once in a lifetime experience.

There was so much for the little ones to do as well. They have a safe baby pool that BabyC loved splashing around in.

They also have a lovely baby turtle feeding area that we spent so much time at. It was BabyC’s first time feeding the turtles. There were even a few times she wanted to be fed instead!

What is a holiday without good food? I was pleasantly surprised that there were so many options  available when it came to meal times. We decided to try dining by the beach and it was so relaxing to hear the waves hitting the sand in the background as we dug into a scrumptious lunch.

On one of the days, we hopped onto a buggy which took us to Banyan Tree, a restaurant at a neighbouring resort. We tried dining by Tree Top at Banyan Tree, and the food was exceptionally delicious. To our delight, we found out that Banyan Tree even delivers food to Cassia!

In support of an initiative started by Cassia, we had purchased padlocks for US$2.25 each, with all the proceeds going to the children from Towdah Orphanage.

Service: 4/5 

All the staff in Cassia Bintan were professional and provided exceptional service. From the moment we stepped foot in Cassia Bintan, til the moment we left, the staff at Cassia Bintan had been friendly and welcoming.

Location: 4/5

The serenity and natural location of Cassia Bintan had created a lovely serene environment for the ultimate relaxation. Having the exclusive beach in a close vicinity of the resort made it much more convenient to take a stroll along the emerald waves.

Interior: 5/5

Giving off a chic and modern vibe, the rooms were tastefully decorated with bright paintings and an overall unique style that extended into the large and comfy resort lobby.

Food: 4/5

The large range of food options available was definitely a plus point. The food that we tried at Banyan Tree was super delicious. Cassia Bintan also offers an impressive breakfast buffet spread that we leisurely enjoyed to kick start our day before we started on the day’s activities.

Value: 4/5

I would absolutely recommend Cassia Bintan for a fun family trip or just a weekend getaway. There were so many things to do, the many amenities and activities available at the resort really made it worth the price!

It is truly pure bliss to be in the right company, and at the right place and time with friends like family…I couldn’t have asked for a better business partner and mummy friend in Audrey.

Cassia Bintan review

Although my schedule is always packed, I’ll always make it a point to do the most important thing in life and spend time with my loved ones. Trips like this with family and friends like family will always hold a special place in my heart, especially since this is my first tri-girl generation trip with both Mum and BabyC! I’ve made so many fun and happy memories there.

At the end of the day, we may not remember the days…but we will remember the moments ❤️

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!

Here’s what I use in my daily beauty routine for the past week or so.

First, I like to cleanse my face with Neutrogena’s Fine Fairness Cleanser. Simply squeeze the cleanser, lather up into foam and massage gently on my face. This gentle foaming cleanser helps to cleanse my skin from surface oil, dull dead skin cells, and other impurities. It is also packed with moisturising ingredients that leave my skin feeling soft and smooth!

I would highly recommend using the Light Mask right after a well-cleansed face for maximum Infra-Red Light absorption, and then follow your skincare routine after the usage.

Here’s how to use your light mask:

1. Cleanse your face. Open the ear arms and put on the mask like you are wearing a pair of glasses.

2. Activate the mask by pressing and holding the power button for 1 second.

3. Relax in the comfort of your home for 10 minutes or so. The mask will turn off automatically after 10 minutes.

The light energy is a scientifically proven, effective technology which works on the epidermis layer to rejuvenate our skin from within. With the red light, it helps to boost visibly brighter and radiant skin. The Infra-Red Light, on the other hand, helps with firming your skin giving you more elastic skin! Now, all you got to do is to sit back, relax and let the mask work its magic!

 

After the pampering session, simply follow up with your normal skincare regime. Shake the Neutrogena Fine Fairness Toner well before use. Moisten your cotton pad with the toner. Apply it all over your face and neck with gentle upward strokes.

 

Last but not least, I like to apply the Fine Fairness Gel Cream right after I use the Light Mask. This highly concentrated gel cream penetrates deeply to activate skin cells to natural healthy turnover.

Simply take some of the Fine Fairness Gel cream on your fingertips, and apply on your face in a circular upwards motion.

 

I love how the Fine Fairness Gel cream leaves a non-sticky finish on my face after application. It smells really good too!

Really enjoyed the 10 minutes me-time while using the Neutrogena Fine Fairness Light Mask! After using this for a week now, I do see significant improvement in my skin’s texture It’s more elastic and it really helps to brighten up my skin. The mask is pretty easy to operate as you just need to press and hold the button to start the session. It’s so light & portable you can even bring it with you during your holiday!

I hope you like this review and tutorial of the Neutrogena Fine Fairness Light Mask! It’s so amazing how you can use dermatologist light solutions to rejuvenate your skin from within at the comfort of your home. No more excuses to be lazy despite your busy schedules.

Love, Cindy
