Review: Cadbury GLOW – The ATAS version of Cadbury Chocolates

Cadbury GLOW supermarket

I’m a big fan of Cadbury chocolates. In fact, I come from a family of Cadbury fans! So when I received a press release regarding Cadbury GLOW exactly 4 days ago in my email, with no actual gift of chocolates, I had to get off my bum and hit the supermarket to find a box of these chocolate pralines.

If you don’t already know, pralines have a chocolate shell with a soft, and sometimes liquid, filling (I’ve just Googled this).

And the Cadbury GLOW ones taste of hazelnut. In fact, there’s a hazelnut paste within the ingredients list! And here’s a random fun fact: the Cadbury GLOW pralines are made in Slovakia, which Wikipedia says is a “high-income advanced economy with one of the fastest growth rates in the European Union and the OECD”. Interesting. I’ve never been there before. It’s some 9,457km away from Singapore – I Googled.

The long distance between Slovakia and Singapore must be one of the reasons why this chocolate is so expensive. It costs S$9.90 for 16 pieces and S$14.90 for 24 pieces. That’s 62 Singapore cents per chocolate praline! For comparison’s sake, there’s currently a Ferrero Rocher promotion at NTUC –  you pay S$7.20 for a box of 16 (each piece costs just S$0.45).

So… if I’m paying 38% MORE for Cadbury than Rocher… it’d better taste extraordinary, no?

Cadbury GLOW

Once you remove the purple cover, you will likely be wowed by the shiny gold box, which you can open to reveal 4 columns of individually packed chocolate pralines:

Cadbury Glow 16 pieces

For someone opening such a box for the first time, I must admit that there was undeniably a ‘wow’ factor.

It’s Cadbury like I’ve never known it to be. It’s now… what’s the word… ATAS!

The disappointment sets in quickly once you open the wrapping though. The chocolates are NOT made to survive Singapore’s weather. So make sure you keep them chilled or only open them in an air-conditioned setting. I’m used to keeping chocolates on my desk, without any air-conditioning, and most do OK. But these Cadbury GLOW ones just become mushy and stick to the inside of each wrapper.

So… make sure you keep them chilled and tell your gift recipient to keep the chocolates in the fridge unless they want a sticky, gooey mess.

Taste-wise, it’s pretty good, no doubt. I like the liquid center which delivers a surprise when you bite into the otherwise-familiar Cadbury chocolate exterior.


Why is Cadbury GLOW more expensive than the usual Cadbury chocolate range we are used to? My thoughts:

  1. The packaging is beautiful – we’re definitely paying for the classy packaging
  2. It’s limited edition – that definitely warrants a steeper pricetag
  3. You can send a personalized note or video via to the recipient of your chocolate pralines
  4. It’s probably available only in 3 countries: Singapore, Hong Kong and India

All in all, I think it’s a Christmas chocolate offering from Cadbury that Cadbury fans will still enjoy. Once Christmas is over, I’m definitely going back to purchasing the more affordable range of chocolates from Cadbury! :D

Lady First Singapore Season 3 Ep 8: Beauty Hacks For Power Women

Lady First Singapore

It’s almost the end of Season 3, and what better time to celebrate “power women” (a much better term compared to “office ladies” or “OLs”)? Office workers have to deal with extremes in temperature (air-conditioned offices versus the blazing hot sun outside when they head out for lunch) and they also tend to work long hours every day. On top of that, they have to worry about how they look.

Kevin recommends black-rimmed glasses for a scholarly look and pearls with a ‘young vibe’. Also, thin bracelets and ring sets are ‘in’ this season. *wink*

I like how dark-rimmed glasses serve to hide dark undereye circles too. :D

Office workers also tend to accumulate fat around the lower part of their bodies. So exercise is important, especially exercises that can be done within the office. Leg raises, for instance, while holding the back of a chair (or the photocopier). Or you can try to ‘sit’ on an imaginary chair – it’ll definitely work those leg muscles as you try to hold that pose.

For the adventurous, grab the sides of your seat and lift your bum off the chair (and your feet off the ground). Once again, try to ‘hold’ the pose. Hehe! This exercise is definitely not easy – I’ve done it before! :D

Lady First SG

As for the fashion aspect of things, professional-looking simple jackets are best. And here’s an important note: DO NOT hold your handbags as shown in the picture above as this will lead to creases forming on your (expensive) leather jacket around the elbow area! Similarly, DO NOT carry it at the shoulder area too.

Lady First Singapore Season 3

A small sling bag is best, if you want to prevent aching shoulder muscles!

Finally, make sure you get enough exercise everyday. Take the stairs when possible. Also, carve some time out of your schedule to relax… :) I recommend having a spa experience at home every night, with the use of the right products – it could be an aromatherapy diffuser, or a shampoo or body lotion with an awesome, relaxing scent.

Woke up to some good news (Tsum Tsum’s 50mil downloads) and some not-so-good news (in Paris). I’ve previously shared about my addiction to this game and how I want to achieve a high score of 6 million. I’ve done it. :D

Now I’m aiming for 7 million. LOL! And I do wonder what the best possible high score (among the 50 million fans worldwide) really is. So please drop me an email if you have a personal best that is higher than 7 million. :D :D

I secretly think this game is more addictive than Candy Crush. Ha!

STENDERS: The GOLD Standard In Christmas Gifting! :D


I met a blogging student at Plaza Singapura today, and since I was there I popped by the newly-opened STENDERS store to check out their Christmas offerings. I’ve blogged about the products I received at their launch previously – read it here if you haven’t already done so. I’m still loving the facial exfoliator; not done using it yet since it is recommended that I do the exfoliation just once (or twice) a week. The scent is pretty amazing.

But I’m so glad I popped by STENDERS today because I discovered something AWESOME. In the picture you see above, I’ve indicated the prices for their gift-wrapping services. You pick a box size that you want, e.g. the medium-sized one for S$7 and the staff will pack your products in them, and include the (REAL) dried fruits/flowers/leaves and the ribbon on top FOR FREE! Can you imagine that?! I mean… a box of that size would easily cost me S$15 or even S$20 from a gift shop elsewhere! And they are giving us all those gorgeous extras for FREE? That totally brings out the #Singaporean in me. :D

I also asked if I could… you know… bring a teddy bear I’d bought elsewhere and put it into the box, together with a STENDERS product I’ve bought. And the really friendly sales assistant, Summer, said that yes I could, as long as the bear would fit inside the box! OMG. I’m SO doing my Christmas gift-shopping here.

And behind the counter is a whole selection of really pretty (and very REAL) dried fruits, flowers, leaves and other sweet-smelling potpourri-like stuff which will beautify those gift boxes…

STENDERS gift wrapping

And, of course, I’ve already mentioned this before: I’m eyeing their GOLD range of products. The scent is a light but pleasant one. And the packaging just looks very atas and expensive. But they are affordably priced:

STENDERS plaza singapura

 In case it’s hard to read… 24 Carat Gold Shower Gel (S$33), 24 Carat Gold Bath Elixir (S$31), 24 Carat Gold Body Scrub (S$39). I hope I don’t regret this later (if the company decides to raise prices)… I think the current prices are actually ridiculously low.

And in the same range, there’s also the Gold Bath Ball (S$15) and Gold Soap (S$22). It’s a no-brainer, die-die-must-buy-for-Christmas.

And in case you are wondering, no, this is not a paid nor sponsored post. It’s just the result of my entering a store today, having a great conversation with the sales assistant, and discovering a really good bargain for gift-wrapping. And… you’re welcome. *wink*

STENDERS is located at #03-75 Plaza Singapura

Lady First Singapore Season 3 Ep 7: Say Goodbye To Acne

Lady First Singapore

I’m one of the lucky ones. I’ve never really had prolonged bad experiences with acne. Just an episode here and there, and it clears up quickly too. I’d like to think it has something to do with good genes, and eating lots of vegetables as a kid. :D

In this episode, however, even guru Xiao Kai shares that he had acne as a 16 year old.

And if you’d like to avoid getting acne, you will first have to take care of your skin when it’s still in the blackheads or whiteheads ‘stage’. When there are blocked pores, there might be follicle inflammation. So always keep the follicles clean and exfoliate the right way.

And you must remember this important tip: Moisturize immediately after exfoliation to prevent dryness.

Lady First SG

Here are more tips to help you prevent and combat acne:

  1. Consumption of too many dairy products can increase your protein intake, leading to acne in some cases.
  2. Sweet/sugary foods increase insulin production, leading to more oil secretion. Even fruit juices can be high in sugar content!
  3. If your skin is acne-prone, focus on moisturizing.
  4. Use a copper-colored foundation if you have acne.
  5. Avoid using loose powder in a single color.
  6. Try not to hide acne behind your hair around your forehead or cheeks – conditioner residues can cause acne or worsen existing problems. Change your pillowcases frequently too!
  7. You can go to the doctor’s to get an injection to drain the pimples a few hours before a major event that you have to attend. *wink*

5 Creative Money-Saving Tips For Under-30s Like Me

Someone wise said this – “Rich people stay rich by living like they’re broke. Broke people stay broke by living like they’re rich.” But it’s tough. As our incomes go up, so does our expenditure, right? And before we know it, we find ourselves broke before the end of the month comes by, and saddled with credit card bills from spending on stuff we don’t need but bought anyway to impress people we actually do not care very much about.

Does that sound familiar to you? ;)

Well, here I present some ideas of mine for bringing out the penny-pincher in you. Haha! :D It may not all be feasible for you, but feel free to tweak these ideas to suit your needs ok?

(1) Give More Donations, Pay Less Tax

Income tax in Singapore

How much you can potentially save: No Limit !!!

If you don’t already know, you can make donations to approved charities and organizations by the end of this year, and get 3 times your donated amount in tax rebates. Don’t quote me on this but I’m assuming this is how it works: Say you’ve worked out your income tax to be S$1000 and you’ll have to pay this sum in a few months’ time. If you make a donation of S$333 now, you’ll get tax relief of three times this amount, which is S$999. Then the balance that you’ll have to pay in taxes is S$1. So the total amount you’ve spent is S$334, instead of the original S$1000. You’ve thus saved S$666, and earned a lot of karma points. :D

I don’t know about you, but this sure sounds pretty good to me. I’ve been donating to the National Kidney Foundation and the Children’s Cancer Society. Hopefully I don’t have to pay any tax in the end, and I’ll also have lots of karma points added to my tally. Wheee!~

(2) Get Cheaper Substitutes While Still Looking Glam

Credit thebeerpage net

( Pic Credit: )

How much you can potentially save: Maybe S$6 a day (?) [That’s S$2190 a year!]

Say, for instance, you like the coffee from a particular well-known coffee chain. But each cuppa sets you back by a few dollars each time, and you may even need a few cups each day just to keep you from looking like you belong in The Walking Dead.

I would recommend that you just buy the mug with the famous logo and all, and either fill it up daily with cheaper coffee from your neighborhood kopitiam or, even better, with coffee you buy from the supermarket and brew at home.

This way, you can still walk down Shenton Way looking very chic with your coffee mug in hand, you still get your daily caffeine boost, you save a lot of money, and no one’s the wiser. You’re welcome.

(3) Go On Fully-Funded (Volunteer) Trips

How much you can potentially save: Hundreds, if not thousands of dollars a year

I’ve just returned from a fully-funded trip to Kuala Lumpur in which I received leadership training, learnt to make ecobaskets for sale to help marginalized women, prepared food and delivered it to the homeless in KL, helped in painting an orphanage, weeded an ecogarden, and also had high tea with a Malaysian Minister in the Prime Minister’s Office.

The airfare, accommodation, meals and transport were all provided for. I also got featured in the papers and on TV. Is that cool or what?

ASEAN4U news

I’ve only recently found out that there are so many volunteer programs and youth programs that cater to those under 30 years of age. You get to fly to another country, experience their culture and food, and also make good friends among the participants. And yes, I’m definitely dreading turning 30 next year. I feel like time is running out. :(

(4) Become A Blogger – You “Might” Get Loads Of Freebies

Grace Tan

I’m not even kidding.

Of course, do not go into Blogging just because you want freebies. That’s just wrong. But if you have a passion for writing, or about writing about your Passion, then you should consider setting up a blog.

I’ve received so many freebies over the past 5 years I’ve been blogging that I’ve realized (1) Sponsored items mean I can spend less, and divert funds to donations, for instance and (2) If I’d sold all those items given to me, I’ll be rather rich now. :D


From movie tickets to staycations, from food to fitbits, from shampoo to shoes, I’ve received quite a bit in sponsored items. And don’t get me wrong, I’m in no way boasting (because I have to work hard for them) and I’m not ungrateful either (sometimes I wonder what I did to deserve such awesome sponsors). So, a big ‘thank you’ to the Universe – please send more goodies my way. :D

(5) Buy Items “Off-Season”

This probably sounds weird because Singapore only has one season (Summer), right? But there are many things that you should probably only buy after waiting a while.

For instance, we are approaching the end of this year. And many people will be buying diaries and planners for 2016, right? Well, I’m not. Why?

I’ve noticed that a planner that I buy in advance for the new year might cost me something like S$29.90 or more. But that same planner can be on sale in February and cost S$5 or less, because the stores are eager to clear them off the shelves as few people will buy them from February onwards.

So, what do I do? I simply have to print out a (free) one-month calendar for January (you can easily find one online) and then get a diary or planner in February at a huge discount.

It’s the same for clothes. I’m on the mailing lists of major blogshops and online boutiques. But I don’t buy their clothes when they have a new launch (and that’s quite frequent too). Instead, I wait for their clearance sales, warehouse sales, and even sales on special events (Boxing Day, anniversary, etc). And, of course, there are great deals just across the Causeway:

Bought in JB when S$1 = RM3

Baby clothes from JB

If you’re a teenager or if you are in your early twenties, instant gratification is the norm. But as you grow older, you’ll realize that delayed gratification actually makes you appear wiser and is better for your wallet. :D

If you’d like to read about more money-saving tips from me, do leave me a comment or drop me an email. I do have a few more wacky ideas involving websites with return policies, coupon strategies, home purchases, etc. And I’d love to hear about your ideas as well. So please share them with me! :)


This post is my contest entry. is giving away a S$100 Lazada voucher to each of 5 winners with the best blogposts about money-saving tips. Contest ends 18 Nov. Wish me luck! :D

Sheepography: Sheep And Typography, And A Source Of Inspiration!

I’m probably the least active user on Instagram that you know. But when I’m on IG, I tend to ‘surf’ and look out for interesting accounts to follow. I chanced upon ‘Sheepography’ one day and I found that the illustrations and the messages lifted my spirit.

On one particular occasion, I was feeling low and I saw one of the Sheepography posts which came with the hashtags “#jesus #loves #grace”. And it was like ‘OMG, this is God speaking to me’. And I kid you not… tears actually fell.

I watched a video featuring Oprah Winfrey recently and she mentioned something about how we ‘find’ God when we go in search of him. And I’ve found this to be so true! :D

I got in touch with Kelvin, the founder and creator of Sheepography, to find out more about why he started this IG account / business in the first place, what he does for a living, and what his plans are for this Sheepography. But first, check out some of the current merchandise…

Sheepography 2016 Desk Calendar, greeting cards and bookmarks:

Sheepography Calendar

The Calendar: I love how the sheep on the cover is sleeping soundly as Jesus rows the (paper?) boat. It reminds me that through all storms, and in every circumstance, I can rest securely at the feet of Jesus. And what a joy and a privilege it is to be in this position! And inside the calendar is page after page of divine inspiration! I’m excited about 2016 already! If you’d like to purchase any of these awesome Sheepography products, the link will be at the end of this blogpost. :)

And here’s Kelvin, with what is possibly the coolest-looking van in town!

Sheepography founder Kelvin

He told me that the whole idea of Sheepography isn’t about an illustration or anything like that, or about whose drawing it is. He simply wants to ‘lift the name of Jesus’, and to help others encounter the love of Jesus, and share with us his take on the relationship between the shepherd and his beloved sheep.

Kelvin also showed me the sheep which started it all. (I forgot to ask if it has a name. Ha!) He now runs Sheepography full-time, and every week, he shares his illustrations with the world. Sheepography posts reach out to both Christians and non-Christians alike so check those out either on Facebook or Instagram.

Sheepography sheep

Now make a guess… what was Kelvin working as before he decided to dedicate his time to running Sheepography as a business? :) (Teacher? Photographer? Engineer?)

Well, he was a lighting architect! Yes, I admit it’s the first time I’m hearing of such an occupation but it sure makes sense when you think about how there HAS to be someone who advises business owners (like restaurateurs) on what kind of lighting is suitable for their place of business, right? He’d even gone to Italy to learn from a “lighting master”!

However, he has quit his job to run Sheepography. Kelvin told me that he derives more fun from taking pictures of the toy sheep and the places he brings it to, versus “a thousand selfies”, and that’s how Sheepography was born! Then his church also got him to be the illustrator for the children’s programme that’s part of a missions trip. And one thing led to another and before you know it… we have these special illustrations and very unique greeting cards, which you can totally mail out as Christmas cards!

Sheepography greeting cards

For the year ahead, Kelvin plans to venture into producing an infant clothing line so parents can get ‘uplifted’ as they care for their children, by reading a verse on a baby’s romper, for instance. And oh, there might be journals too. I’m definitely looking forward to the launch of these upcoming products! :)

And here’s the bookmark set – perfect for a bookworm like me:

Sheepography bookmarks

If you’ve read this far, right to the end of this post… here’s a little reward for you: Locate Sheepography on Instagram and follow the account as Kelvin is conducting a giveaway. You’ll stand to win those awesome 2016 calendars! :D Trust me, you’ll want one. And to check out the whole range of merchandise, click on the link below…

Lady First Singapore Season 3 Ep 6: Impress At First Sight

There is no doubt that first impressions are important. And this episode of Lady First Singapore demonstrates this clearly. From socialite Jamie Chua’s impeccable outfit (and hairdo) to 19-year-old Zhenxiang’s trouble with hereditary white hair, we come to understand that the image we portray has a huge effect on how others perceive us.

In some cases, the remedies are simple. Take Zhenxiang’s white hair, for instance. Guru Wu Li Yin’s recommendation is to use Men’s Bigen Cream Color and to apply some moisturizing lotion along the hairline before you start dyeing your hair. Just like that, Zhenxiang is able to dye his hair black within a short span of 5 minutes.

For the other guests, it’s not quite as straightforward:

1) Keely and I share one thing in common when it comes to makeup: We do not like the sticky feeling of lipstick. Yup. And I definitely detest having hair sticking to my lips after a gust of wind blows past. However, it is important to keep lips looking clean and moisturized, so a lip scrub can be helpful. The cleansing beads in facial scrubs may be too large and too harsh for your lips, so get one that’s just for the lip area, where the skin can be thinner than our eyelids, according to guru Clarence.

Lady First Singapore

2) If you are a young man about to meet potential in-laws, remember that slick hairstyles are NOT suitable. You want a look that portrays trustworthiness so avoid going with the ‘bad boy’ look.

Lady First SG

3) If you are a slightly more mature woman, avoid what Lina did by wearing a white dress and going with a makeup look that had her cheeks and eyes looking too pink. In fact, her skin tone is pretty dark so it doesn’t make any sense to have extremely pink cheeks. Clarence’s suggestion is to apply blusher in a circular motion, or use downward strokes, to ensure it blends in well. And, of course, pick the right shade of blusher!

Lady First Singapore Lina

You can also consider using a micro-blur product to cover wrinkles around the eye area, a glow creator to add a bit of sparkle to your look, but definitely always apply makeup according to your age.

Nouri Face and Body Concepts: My Introduction To Eyebrow Embroidery

Nouri Face and Body Concepts is well-loved by customers for its pre-natal and post-natal massage services, but I found out it has a whole suite of services to cater to the needs of the modern woman! I spent almost a full day at Nouri and experienced the Nouri scrub, wrap, facial, tummy slimming, underarm IPL and even 6D eyebrow embroidery!

Nouri is located near Textile Centre, and accessible by bus from Bugis Junction – just two bus stops’ away. Situated at the ground floor of Block 462 (Crawford Lane), it’s easy to feel at home in Nouri. In fact, the quirky decorative pieces give the place a ‘homely’ instead of an atas feel.

Nouri face and body

Do not be fooled by the size of this boutique salon – it is very well-equipped inside. Valerie, the founder of Nouri, strives to ensure she has everything her clients require – whether they have skin concerns, weight issues or need the latest beauty fix. Clients go to her for beautiful brows too (more on this in a bit). Valerie shared with me that she has been offering eyebrow emboidery services since 2007. She received her “first certificate in 3D eyebrow art in 2007 from David brow art academy, had a 2nd upgrade in 2010 with the Ivan Shaper korean eyebrow course and a third upgrade with Browtisan in 2015”.

There are 2 treatment rooms at Nouri, and 1 comes with a shower, right there in the corner:

Nouri Face and Body Concepts

It’s quite convenient as one can immediately pop into the shower after a scrub. Nouri and/or the therapist will be in the room changing the sheets in preparation for the next treatment though. XD


My treatment ‘menu’ for the day:


Valerie found that while I have tanned skin, my skin wasn’t “glowing” because of the accumulation of dead skin cells. So a scrub was ordered. Specially formulated in-house, the scrub isn’t too harsh on the skin.


I then experienced the hot blanket ‘wrap’ at Nouri – I was told it’d be set at “gentle heat” for a longer period of time than at similar centres. It sure got pretty warm eventually and I almost thought I’d pass out. However, the wrap and the induced perspiration helps expel toxins and also alleviate my water retention issue. It’s really effective though I can’t say I like being wrapped up like a burrito and “marinating” in my own perspiration very much. No pain, no gain then. :D


I love the facial treatment most. I’ve been for facials in many different salons and it’s pretty rare to come across a therapist whose fingers dance across your skin. There are many therapists who do facial cleansing and massages as if they are cleaning a tabletop or the bottom of a cooking pot. Valerie, on the other hand, does facials as if she’s polishing an antique (and very expensive) vase. It’s quite a treat, really. Definitely head to Nouri for a pampering facial. :)


As for the tummy slimming, all I can say is that the effects are long-lasting. The special cream starts the fat-burning process, the machine breaks up the fat cells and I even found some red and black marks on my tummy when I got home. It was as if I’d done so many crunches that my mid-section ached. The marks only subsided after a few days. According to Valerie, just a few sessions of this and one can easily slip into a bodycon dress and have no worries about a tummy showing.


I can’t say I like IPL very much as it can sting, especially if it is targeted at the rare pimple or two. A few more sessions are required for the desired effects to be long-lasting.



6D Eyebrow Embroidery

(Yes, that’s my eye and brow. The brown strokes are done by Valerie. They look just like actual hairs! Cool eh?)

When done professionally with adequate numbing cream applied, the 6D Eyebrow Embroidery is not at all painful. You’ll be able to hear scraping-like sounds as the blade makes cuts across your skin. But there should be no pain at all. It’s quite surreal. Do ensure that your therapist uses a new blade for you as each cut may draw blood especially if the surface of your skin is really thin, like mine.

Pre-drawn lines act as a guide for when the actual ‘cuts’ are done:

Nouri 6D Eyebrow Embroidery

With enough numbing cream, there’s no pain at all. You might even fall asleep:

Nouri Face and Body Concepts

Pain is my #1 concern. But the numbing cream used at Nouri really works. After the numbing cream and anesthetic wears off though, it stings a bit… all the way till I got home. Then comes the tricky part: your brows are not supposed to come into contact with water for a week at least. You can purchase Tegaderm plasters from Watsons stores to paste over your brows before you head into the shower, or before you wash your face. And there’s a healing cream from Nouri that I have to apply 5 to 6 times during the day.

Eyebrow Embroidery Repair Cream

And oh… I had to abstain from seafood for a week as well. And truth be told, it’s actually quite troublesome to have to “plaster” my brows before every face wash or shower. Thankfully, the Tegaderm plasters are truly waterproof. I even went for a swim with them on, while I was on a staycation at Park Hotel Alexandra.

Because there wasn’t quite enough time to work on the tail end of one brow during the first session, I popped by Nouri a second time within a week for a quick touch-up.

My brows after the second session at Nouri:

Nouri eyebrow embroidery

(There was temporary swelling under one brow due to the anesthesia)

Because cuts are made on the skin, you can expect scabs to form and then fall off within the next few days. Touch-ups are usually done a month or so after the first session, and you may even require up to 3 sessions. In my case, because the touch-up was done when the skin was still rather ‘tender’ from the earlier cuts made, I did experience some pain. I would describe the pain level as being the equivalent of having three paper cuts on one brow. It’s not very pleasant, so do ensure you set aside enough time for your very first eyebrow embroidery session.

While the original price of the 6D eyebrow embroidery package is S$1800, Nouri Face & Body Concepts is offering a 50% discount to my readers for a limited period. I’d recommend it for ladies who have absolutely no time to perfect their brows in the morning and/or want natural looking brows that don’t look tattoo-ed on.

Lady First Singapore Season 3 Ep 5: Secret To Staying Young Forever

This episode probably gives ‘hope’ to a lot of women (and maybe, men too). :D And there’s a special guest (Rosina Lam, an actress from Hong Kong) who is absolutely gorgeous. If you’ve missed the episode, you can still watch it ‘on demand’ as a StarHub subscriber. *wink*

I’ve learnt a lot from this episode of Lady First Singapore. The most interesting nugget of information I’ve gleaned is about the signs of ageing, and where they appear. Apparently, they can be observed in places like your heels, neck, skin, dark circles & eyebags, hands, and crow’s feet at the corners of your eyes. And truth be told, I really don’t pay much attention to any of these (other than the eye area).

But just by making small tweaks here and there, from the color of your eyeliner to the shape of your eyebrows, you can achieve a significantly younger look. Choose the right brow shape for your face, and the right brow color to match your hair color:

Lady First Singapore

Xiao Kai’s advice to us ladies is to exercise, stay cheerful and to drink more water. Also, it’s important to exfoliate and moisturize our skin. You’ll definitely not want sallow and tired-looking skin.

Lady First Singapore Xiao Kai

If your skin tone is already yellow-ish, Xiao Kai recommends products with Areginine essence, hyaluronic acid, and seaweed extracts. You can head over to StarHub’s Lady First website for more details on the products – link below.

When applying mascara, guru Clarence’s recommendation is to pick waterproof mascaras if your eyelashes have a tendency to become droopy. I have to disagree with him about the choice of color for the eyeliner though… Maybe it looks good off-screen, but on a TV screen it looks like Candyce has some sort of eye infection:

And oh… Graphic tees are IN this season so go ahead and experiment with colors:
