With Valentine's Day approaching, I was happy that Pepperkoko approached me for another outfit collaboration because it was a pleasant experience working with them for the last campaign. And even though this is an advertorial, I still had to order my apparels through the normal click and courier process, and I must say that the customer service was top notch! I received my parcel within week of ordering. 












Getting My C Curls + MUCOTA Treatment With KENJO Salon + 15% OFF Discount Code!

So many of you might known that I decided to cut my hair short last year - and have since kept it that way because it's so much easier to maintain and blow-dry. But cutting it short also meant that I had to bid goodbye to my favourite C curls that I did with KENJO Salon around a year back. You can read all about my hair transformation back then HERE.

Ever since I did that, my hair has become unbelievably straight - probably also because part of them got rebonded when I did my C Curls the other time. And as a result, I had to wake up every day to curl my hair because I just couldn't deal with the fact that they were so straight and rigid. I also didn't want to perm my hair again (I wasn't sure about the exact length I wanted to keep them) till recently when I decided that I wanted to grow them out a little more - which is why I decided to curl my hair ends again - yay!



Granted, the difference might not be as stark as the first try because I have already been curling my hair every day so there's always this slight curl to them! But having permanent curls (for the time being anyway) now meant that I don't have to constantly curl them every morning anymore!


Refreshments served as I was doing my hair! They also provide FREE wifi in the salon! 


Also took the change to do an Omega MUCOTA treatment at the salon!





 The products that were used on my hair! Treatment wise, the process was rather clear cut and the whole treatment took around 1.5 hours or so. Joseph would first prep my hair with the MUCOTA C cream, before using the treatment shampoo and conditioner for my wash. He would also put the hair treatment before and after my curls to make sure that my hair doesn't become too dry and that the curls will last!




For those of you who are intending to do the C Curls, I would highly recommend you to bring something to the salon to pass your time as the whole process (including treatment) takes around 4 hours. So, try to take some food away or bring your laptops along to get work done!

The entire process was extremely fuss-free as I've already done these curls before, and I had professionals attending to my every need! Instead of using the ceramic steamer, Joseph also opted for the electric version which helped to save quite a bit of time while achieving the same effect!


The end result!


And also a picture with my stylist, Joseph!

Okay, some of you might be thinking that there aren't any drastic changes to my hair. But as I mentioned earlier in the blog post - the entire reason of my getting my hair curled is so that I don't have to manually do it in the mornings anymore!

Joseph also gave me tips on how to style my hair and how to blow-dry them the proper way to achieve my intended curls - something that I'm still trying to master till now.


Really loving my curls!

2016, you've changed me.

2016 has been one hell of a year.

I know I say this almost every time I craft a blog post to sum up the end of every year, but really though, it has been one hell of a year.

Where do I even begin with?

2016 has been a year of many firsts. I finally graduated from school after 4 years of intense paper chase and countless of sleepless nights. I got my first job - a job which I didn't foresee to take on but also a job which made me realise that the working world is not too scary after all - either that or because I'm blessed with good colleagues and a really understanding boss. Many times, I still can't believe that I was still schooling and stressing over essay deadlines last January.

2016 allowed me to experience my first overseas trip with my boyfriend - a really rare moment which my mom allowed me to go on without much persuasion. Heck, I don't think I even had to persuade anything because it was an immediate "yes" - something which I'm still very thankful for till today because it was one of the best trips I've ever experienced. I finally realised the true meaning of travelling with someone you love and I wish for those moments again.

And speaking of travelling, 2016 also blessed me with the opportunity to go on an overseas trip with my family and my boyfriend - also thanks to my bf's luck. But in a way, it fast-forwarded our plans to visit Japan by a year.

2016 made me realise how to become a better friend. It also taught me how to give and listen more, because when shit happens, friends are always the first ones who come pick you up no matter what kind of mess you've landed yourself into. They are always the first to be there and the last to judge, and I'm extremely thankful for my best friend and everyone else who has been there for me throughout my many worsts.

2016 was also a year where my social media stints grew tremendously. I experienced the joy of working with many brands which I've dreamt of working with in 2015, tried various cuisines that I didn't even know existed. And really, I want to take this chance to thank all these brands for believing in what I can deliver. I also had the opportunity to go on my first media trip with like-minded individuals and fulfilled by first #bucketlist. Even though most of the trip saw us trudging our heavy feet everywhere we went (we really had to walk a lot), it was still an extremely unforgettable experience.

And of course, 2016 also brought about my fair share of personal struggles and mental obstacles along the way. I probably already had them in me, but they somehow became heightened towards the end of last year. It was also the year I found out how bad I am in controlling my emotions, and how my insecurities tend to eat me up more than they should. It's like running a marathon every single day and you don't know when the finishing line will appear.

But ultimately, 2016 made me grow a hell lot and I have really been incredibly blessed by the people and opportunities around me. And the most important thing I've learned this year

"Don't set yourself on fire to keep others warm."

2017, bring it on.

MGM Macao Hotel Review: What You Can Expect When You Stay In This Luxurious Hotel

If you are heading to Macao anytime soon and are looking for a place to stay, you can definitely consider MGM Macao. Known for its attention to detail and its luxurious hotel setting, the 5-star hotel would be everything you've ever dreamed of. It even has an 8 metre tall cylindrical aquarium sitting in the middle of the hotel lobby!

The hotel lobby


The hotel lobby resembles the Grande Pra├ža, the central plaza of the hotel that’s been designed to mimic Lisbon’s iconic central train station. The hotel has a great emphasis on art, where it even has dedicated spaces showcasing the newest and greatest art works.

The artwork in the central plaza changes periodically, and it is currently adorned with 160 glass butterflies designed by renowned display artist, Stephen Stefanou.  




The room 

The 5-star hotel sits on the prime waterfront estate, and here, you will be greeted with a gorgeous view of the skyline in every room. We stayed in the Grand Deluxe Ocean View Room which features a room measuring at 48 square meters. 

The spacious room was divided into 3 segments - the bedroom, a small living area as well as a bathroom - all of which were well-furnished with the best living amenities. 


Bedroom with LED TV

Below the LED TV also lies the Mini bar which is always well stocked with snacks and beverages - including Macao beer!


Small living space 

King-sized bed

The bed was extremely comfy and luxurious, and it was nice to also be able to control the lights in the hotel right from the bed.


Wardrobe  with hairdryer, a safety deposit, blankets and robes! 


Bathroom with bathtub and shower area. The bathroom came with a double sink, amenities like soap, shampoo, a free-standing bathroom, a rain shower and a toilet.



The view from my room at MGM Macao. 


Complimentary breakfast for hotel guests!

Food

Other than the complimentary hotel breakfast for guests (their eggs are amazing, btw!) Guests can also dine at the Imperial Court which serves classic Cantonese fares, prepared with the freshest seasonal ingredients, as well as authentic and traditional techniques. 

There are also a dim sum set lunch menu and a specialty lunch set for guests to choose from. For more information, you can also visit the website here:
