Since it's almost Christmas, I bet most of us are currently in the midst of doing some last-minute Christmas shopping and wrapping our heads around what kind of Christmas gifts would be perfect for our friends and loved ones.

And, while we are still in this topic, why not do something a little different this Christmas and give your friends and family the gift of health this year? Plus, some of these bundled gift sets are well below the price range of S$100, which is perfect for those who are running tight on cash and are still looking gifting something substantial!

OSIM's Christmas Sets

This year, our dear OSIM has come up with a series of Christmas Sets for everyone! 
And, with 3 bundle gift sets to choose from, you can even kill 2 birds with 1 stone by getting 2 gifts of your choice for the price of 1! 

Some of these gift sets include:

1.  $68 picks - uSnooz Neck Pillow & uMask Eye Massager 


If you have friends or family who are avid travellers, this combination will be perfect for them. The uSnooz neck pillow is not only perfect for taking short naps on the plane, it can also help support and relax muscles in your neck - helping you experience deeper relaxation for a better nap.

The uMask Eye Massager, on the other hand, releases gentle vibrations when worn to relax eye muscles and increase circulation around the eyes - which really helps to relieve any form of fatigue or strain!

2. $98 picks – uSnooz Massage Wrap & uVision Eye Massager

If you're participating in any form of Christmas exchange this year and have no idea what to get for your closer colleagues, these gifts will be perfect for them!

With plush microfabric and a snug memory foam fit, the uSnooz Massage Wrap envelops you completely in a wave of calming feel-good sensation. The built-in massager has 6 unique vibration programs that effectively loosen tensed, knotted muscles to ease body aches and stiffness!

The uVision Eye Massager, on the other hand, features strategically positioned magnetic nodes to help improve circulation around your eyes. So say goodbye to tired eyes - and hello to refreshed beautiful ones!

3. $168 picks – uMist Dream Humidifier + uPure 2 Water Purifier


Like that they always say - you are what you drink. If you're looking for gifts for your parents or your loved ones, these two products from OSIM are bound to grant them with better sleep and healthier skin!

The uMist Dream Humidifier features ultrasonic technology that creates the ideal humidity level in the air to provide a hydrated, comfortable and healthier indoor environment for a good night's sleep.

The uPure 2 Water Purifier, on the other hand, has a unique 4-step purification process that can effectively remove almost all of the known bacteria* in tap water - so, you and your family can enjoy pure, clean water every day!



Other products also includes the OSIM uScalp and uGem 2 that I previously reviewed about here!

My top picks:

uMist Dream Humidifier + uGrace BF Body Composition Monitor

1. uMist Dream Humidifier


For someone who sleep with the aircon on, my skin tends to become really dry when I wake up in the mornings - even after slapping on tons of moisturiser before I sleep every night. I've heard many wonderful stories about how humidifiers can tackle dryness in skin, I've wanted to get one for the longest time - just that I haven't found the right product for me. 


What I love most about using the uMist Dream Humidifier is that it uses ultrasonic sound wave energy to break up water into extremely fine mist, the uMist Dream quickly adds moisture to the air to protect your skin, eyes, throat and nasal passages in dry, air-conditioned or heated rooms.



Plus, it even has a night light feature that gives you easy access to better air quality at all times while a LED indicator prompts you for a refill when water level!

2. uGrace BF Body Composition Monitor


When it comes to using weighing machines, most of us will shun the idea of even stepping onto one because it often shows us our darkest reality and prompts us that it's time to get that new year weight-losing resolution started. 

But, did you know that other than your weight, it's also important to know the other body metrics so as to maintain a healthy lifestyle and know exactly what is going on with your body? 


What I really love about the the OSIM uGrace BF Body Composition Monitor is that is also measures:
- Body weight
- Body fat
- Body water percentage
- Muscle mass
- Bone mass
- Body mass index (BMI)
- Daily calorie estimates (kCal)


Plus, it even comes with a large LCD display, energy-saving auto on-off feature, tempered glass and anti-slip base! Monitoring your body composition has never been easier and safer. 


For more information about the Christmas Gift Sets, you can also watch the video below!


 From now till 31 Dec 2017, you can check out OSIM's collection of Christmas Gifts from 2 products at only $68! Nothing says “Merry Christmas” like a thoughtful gift for your friends and family.

Happy shopping guys!

OSIM uScalp & OSIM uGem 2 - The Perfect Christmas Gift For The Beauty Junkie!

Most of us have seen and tried massagers for our bodies, but not everyone has had the experience of using face / head massagers. If you’re s...

Most of us have seen and tried massagers for our bodies, but not everyone has had the experience of using face / head massagers. If you’re still looking for the right Christmas gift for your friends / loved ones, you should definitely check out the latest beauty massagers from OSIM - the OSIM uScalp & uGem 2! Not only does these make thoughtful and unique Christmas gifts, they are also suitable for all ages!

These two massagers are very different from the OSIM massagers that I usually see - simply because of the fact that they’re both lightweight, and very portable - you can bring it along for your travels too!

OSIM uGem2

Many of you would have seen beauty bloggers giving their own reviews of these products online. And, I’ve also seen many people swearing by this device as those who have used it have seen a significant change in their jawlines.

For someone who never stops eating like me, this device is a gem - literally. Since I rarely have time to exercise and I can never seem to get away from eating yummy food, I've to put in extra effort to make sure that I really do burn all the fats away - especially from my face which I like to believe is naturally round - so of course I can't afford more fats to conjugate there!

Not only can the OSIM uGem2 bring out a sculpted v-shaped face, you can also use it daily with your favourite moisturiser or cream before bedtime - something you would have already been doing so why not add the extra 5-10 mins into your daily skincare routine to get a firmer, v-shaped face?

Plus, the OSIM uGem2 releases vibrations at 6,000 pulses per minute, which definitely outperforms manual facial massages by penetrating deep into the skin.





Other than it being rose-plated, it also has a flat and rounded massage head that helps you maximise the comfortability on your skin and the ease to massage around your face. It also has an extremely easy twist and turn operation, and is battery operated - so you won’t have to worry about forgetting to charge your beauty massager every day!



No longer do you have to use beauty apps to edit and “film” your face down in photos!

5 benefits of using the OSIM uGem2

Other than the OSIM uGem2, another product that you can consider getting for your friends or loved ones can also be the OSIM uScalp - which allows you to enjoy salon-style scalp massages from the comforts of your home!

OSIM uScalp

Also, if you’re looking at getting healthier and shinier hair, the OSIM uScalp is also a great device for you to achieve so!

For someone who NEVER have time to head down to get my hair fixed, I don't usually get hair massages - even though I really want to. And, what better way to pamper myself than have a personalised hair massage experience at home, right? Plus, I love using this device right before I sleep because it really helps to relax and calm me down after a long day at work.




For those of you who might not know why is getting head massages important, massaging the head can actually help to open up the follicles and pores of the scalp to allow better absorption of moisture. It can also help to remove the toxins from the scalp so that it can be cleansed and purified!




For the OSIM uScalp, the multi-directional scrubbing action helps to massage your scalp in a circular motion. It even has 28 massage nodes to help grip your scalp and improve blood circulation - helping you massage all the stress away.

Check out some of the features of the OSIM uScalp too!





OSIM Christmas Exclusive: From now till 31 Dec 2017, enjoy uGem 2 Beauty Massager or uScalp Salon-style Scalp Massager at only $99 each! (UP$149 each)

Available at all OSIM Stores, Roadshows or Online Webshop at www.OSIM.com!

You can also check out the device used in the Ah Boys To Men 4 movie clip below!

6 Reasons Why OSIM uJolly Is the Perfect Full Back Massager for Everyone

For most people my age (I'm 24 this year), the thought of getting a massage chair often brings up a couple of concerns. Other tha...


For most people my age (I'm 24 this year), the thought of getting a massage chair often brings up a couple of concerns. Other than the cost of owning one, my other concern would be the amount of space I've to accommodate in my home for another large furniture fixture.

And, so, when OSIM first approached me if I would be interested to review this massage chair, I immediately jumped on the opportunity - mainly due to the size of the chair and its claim of "turning every chair into a massage chair". My shoulders and back are almost always aching like crazy and I always have to use medicinal plasters at night to relief the pain - what a better time to try the product than now, right? 


The product that came was simple, light weight and easy to use. I just had to plug the switch into my power socket and viola! It was ready to be used.

 Plus, it really did live up to it's claim of being portable and versatile - I tried placing it on my bed and it worked too! It's really as though you are adding an additional seat rest to another surface, really. 

And, after trying the product for myself, here are 6 Reasons Why The OSIM uJolly Is The Perfect Full Back Massager For Everyone. 

1. It costs a fraction of the price of a normal massage chair 

I'm sure that for most people my age, the first thing we look at before purchasing anything would be its price tag. And, I can safely say that the OSIM uJolly costs a fraction of any massage chair you can find out in the market. Plus, it's 1/4 (or less) of the weight, and can be used anywhere! 

Now, massaging can happen 24/7 and not something you've to fork out time for just because with OSIM uJolly, you can use it while watching TV, reading or surfing your phone.

2. You can use it anywhere and everywhere!


From your bedroom, living room, even your work place or on any chair or wall - this portable massager can be brought anywhere to your liking - as long as you've a power socket nearby! 


3. You feel as though someone is really massaging you



One of the traits of the OSIM uJolly is that it adopts a Dual-Action V-Grip which resembles the grip of a human hand. It also has massage techniques such as the Shoulder Grip & Lumbar Press which feels as though someone is massaging your shoulders from the back. 

And, for someone like me who often experiences aches and pains in the neck and shoulders, this function was PERFECT for me as I could even adjust the massage rollers to the exact spot which I was experiencing the ache - spots which I refer to as 'muscle knots'.

To put it simply, 'muscle knots' are muscle fibres in our body that start to 'stick' to one another when we sit at a computer all day that causes us to lose mobility and flexibility. They're often felt as hard and lumpy feelings on our muscles that can be found near our shoulder blades or at the back of our necks! 

4. It helps you have a healthy back 


Girls, for those of you who often experience severe backaches nearing your period - I can totally feel you. Even till now, I still get the icky and achy feeling on my lower back whenever I'm about to have my period. So, I always have to make sure that I don't stand or walk around for too long because it'll start hurting really badly at the end of the day / when I sit down. 

And, since the back supporting area of the OSIM uJolly is fitted to everyone's backs, it can even target the lower back area (near to your bum) to give you instant relief! 


Check out the different massage programs! You can even choose the way you want to be massaged - either by "Rolling and Tapping" or "Press Gripping"! And, you can even adjust the Up or Down buttons to make sure that the massage rollers hit the right spot!


Other than getting back massages from the comforts of your home, you can even opt for WARM AIR back massages which can help to increase circulation, oxygen and nutrients throughout your body! 

5. It has plenty of functions for you to choose from

Whether you're suffering from neck aches, pains caused by your jobs or your regular lifestyles, there's always a function available on this massager that's suited for your needs. You can even use it as a relaxation device after a long day of work to sooth your muscles! Definitely a great way to revitalise your health and senses after a long day at work / school!

6. It makes the perfect gift for your friends or loved ones 

Other than 'Merry Red', the product also comes in a pretty shade of 'Happy Yellow' that can fit any home decor! I really can't emphasise enough on its portability. Check out some of the ways / areas of your homes which you can use the OSIM uJolly at! 
And, you can also quote <CASSAN>  to get S$70 off with free delivery and also receive a pair of FREE Beauty Socks when you purchase an OSIM uJolly during checkout on www.OSIM.com or any OSIM Outlets! 

Also, from now till 31st Dec 2017, enjoy S$70 off OSIM uJolly @ an affordable price of S$429 (U.P. $499) / S$36 per month (based on 12 months instalment) when you pay with DBS/POSB credit, debit or NETS card at any OSIM Outlets today!

If you're really thinking of getting this as a Christmas gift of health for your loved ones and family on their birthdays, now's really the time to get your hands on it!

Bangkok Trippin' 2017 - Review of Oriental Residence Bangkok, Cafe Claire and Places You Should Go When In BKK!

Holla everyone! So, most of you would know that I came back from Bangkok around sometime last week and wow, can I just say how mu...


Holla everyone!

So, most of you would know that I came back from Bangkok around sometime last week and wow, can I just say how much I missed the city?! I mean, the last time I was there was around 5 years ago and the city definitely has had its changes - it's more commercialised now, I would say! 

For those who were following my social media accounts, you would have noticed that our stay in Bangkok was truly magnificent. I've had many friends asking me about my accommodation and here I am today to share with you guys about my stay at Oriental Residence Bangkok! And, can I just say that it was the BEST hotel I've ever stayed in thus far?!

 The amenities they had in the room motivated us to ditch the shopping and return back to our hotel earlier every night to enjoy them - you know how difficult that must've for a shopaholic like myself! 

Oriental Residence Bangkok
 - One Bedroom Suite Corner
From 6,700 THB per night

We had the luxury to enjoy the One Bedroom Suite Corner, which overlooked a panoramic view of the U.S Embassy and the beautiful Bangkok skyline. 

There was a work space for us to get our work done at night, a mini living room corner, dining table and a kitchen for us to whip up a simple meal - not that we have to in Bangkok because there's just too many delectable street food to choose from!

 But hey, if you want to find a chance to impress your other half with your culinary skills or whip them a hearty breakfast in the morning, now, you've all the resources to do it right in the comforts of your hotel room. 

The Living Room

Some of the facilities in the room include:
Work desk
iPod docking station
Coffee/tea maker
Minibar
Pillow menu
LED Television
DVD player
Living area
Fully-equipped kitchen
MicrowaveWasher/dryer (subject to availability)

1. Workspace


2. Living Room Area



3. Dining Area


4. Kitchen

They even have an oven and a full range of cutleries for you to choose from! Damn, why does it feel like I can stay here for a month and never get bored of this lifestyle. 

However, do note that only the coffee and tea in the mini bar are complimentary. But you'll have to pay for the other snacks in the mini bar!

Now, moving on to the bedroom! 

5. The Bedroom



Other than an iron (you don't even need to request for it!), bathrobes, a safety deposit and plenty of wardrobe space, the bed was also extremely comfy to sleep in! I mean, what else can we expect than comfy sheets when they also have a pillow menu, right? Trust me when I say that it was really a struggle getting out of bed every morning. 

And, did anyone else spot the excellent view from our room too?

6. The Bathroom

Some of the facilities in the room include:
Rain shower
Bathrobe and slippers
Hair dryer
Double-sink vanity
Shaver point
Shaving mirror
Kid’s bath time basket, bathrobe, slipper, and bottle sanitizer
Towels and Face Towels are provide



I used a Lush bath bomb almost every night when I was there! You can't give me such a pretty bathtub and ask me not to soak up any bath bombs, right? 


And, yes! No more cramping of toilet spaces when there's a double vanity area! On one end, WJ can use it to brush his teeth in the morning while I get started on my makeup on the other vanity table so that we make the best use of the time there.

7. The Balcony


I mean,  how many hotels in BKK allows your to overlook such a beautiful skyline, right? Oriental Residence BKK sits right at the heart of the city and was a lifesaver for us. There are also shuttle bus services every 1 hour from 8am and every 30mins from 10am onwards to the nearest BTS Station! 


Other services include:

In-residence dining

Complimentary wireless Internet access

International newspaper upon request (chargeable)

Complimentary local newspaper (on request)
Complimentary shuttle service to Bangkok Mass Transit System (BTS) Chidlom station

Evening turndown

Shoe polishing

Breakfast

In the morning, we popped down to Cafe Claire for our complimentary breakfast! There, we were treated to a selection of small bites, cheeses, fruits and danish pastries! There was even an a la carte menu on top of the buffet spread for you to choose the doneness of your egg along with the accompanying side dishes. 

Other than breakfast, Cafe Claire also offer other tea time, lunch and dinner options for hotel patrons and guests! 




____________________________________________________________________

Other benefits of staying at Oriental Residence Bangkok:

1. Afternoon Tea Selections at Cafe Claire 


Other than breakfast, Cafe Claire also serves a wicked afternoon tea selection not for the faint-hearted. 

Available daily from 2:30pm - 5pm, the Parisian-themed high tea set is a dream come true for anyone who has dreams of travelling to the city of love, or wants to reminiscence your time in the city. Here, you get a wide selection of both sweet and savoury treats, as well as a tower of scones that is not to be missed - it was possibly the BEST scones I've had so far. 





The Voyage à Paris Afternoon Tea set costs  just THB 1,500++ for two! 
You can also take your pick from the drinks menu that holds a fine selection of both coffee and tea from TWG! 

2. Have a drink at the Oriental Bar 


Other than small bites, you can also freshen up at the Oriental Bar with a plethora of drinks available on the menu - including signature cocktails that have been inspired by their honoured ambassadors! My favourite drink goes to the Kiwi Wireless which was the perfect drink to wind down the night! 


Other promotions at Oriental Bar include:
1. Unlimited free flow drinks at THB 660++ per person
2. Buy 1 Get 1 Free Drink promotion when you choose from their menu of signature cocktails inspired by honoured ambassadors of the hotel.

3. Ease of access to nearby cafes


Since we haven't been to Bangkok for around 5 years (for me) and it was WJ's first time visiting the city, we had our eyes set on visiting certain cafes which also happen to be near the hotel's vicinity! After checking into Oriental Residence Bangkok, we then took a Grab down to The Commons where a cluster of cafes were at. The Grab ride only took us around 10 mins and it costs us around $4 SGD!

And since we were already at The Commons, we HAD to give ROAST a visit. And nope, we were not disappointed. 



ROAST offers a menu of breakfast, lunch and dinner options! You can even choose from the lunch specials where you can get a main dish, drink and soup for only $12 SGD - and trust me when I say that the portions were really filling! 


4. Close to shopping district 


It was also only a 10-min walk away to the human walkway that connected us to the shopping district where Central World Shopping Centre, Big C Supermarket and SIAM Paragon were at! Had a ball of time eating, shopping and exploring the district - not forgetting our virgin dessert experience at After You Cafe. Now we know why everyone keeps giving it hype because IT WAS REALLY THAT GOOD. 


Mango Sticky Rice Bingsu 


 Shibuya Honey Toast

We also finally gave Som Tam Tua a try - a restaurant located near Siam Square that is known for their papaya salad and fried chicken - as recommend by our friend. Don't forget to opt for the Thai Sticky Rice instead of the usual steamed rice while you are there! 




5. Near to On Lok Yun


For those heading to Bangkok any time soon, I highly urge you to visit On Lok Yun - a breakfast house near the Old Siam Plaza that serves traditional Thai kaya and toasts. It was only a 10-mins ride from ORB and each toast there only costs around $1 SGD! 

6. Visit Truelove at Neverland

Okay, Truelove at Neverland is around a 30-mins ride away (minus the jam) but I had to add this in because anyone who visits Bangkok should just visit this husky cafe once in their lives. 

For just THB 350, you get a 1-hour access to the husky play pen, 1 complimentary drink and 1 complimentary ice-cream cake / cafe per person!
