Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi

Going for Pedicures is a luxury especially when we're so tied up with a million and one things on our checklist. We might even neglect one of our most 'worked out' parts of our bodies, our feet! With all that walking around in heels, dancing/running/spinning classes in covered track shoes, and especially our post London trip, my feet have taken its toll and are as dry as ever.

Thanks to the innovative peeps of Scholl, the leading foot care expert has come up with the perfect new invention to keep callouses at bay.
The all new Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi Electronic Foot File is an electronix foot file that gently buffs callous dry skin on your feet effortlessly and instantly.

What I love about this product is how straightforward and easy to use. Super appropriate for the tech noob like me. The components are broken down and assembled into its bare minimum and ready to use upon purchase. With a twist of a button, you can start your instant pedi foot buff and in minutes viola! The black buffer roller head is easily detachable to wash after use and/or replace when necessary.

*View at your own discretion my dry and crackly feet before*

Happy feet After

The whole buffing process took me about 5 mins on each foot. After buffing and having post pedi salon feet, and reviewing my before pictures, I felt so ashamed walking around in dry wrinkly cracked feet since my last pedicure!  Beauty really begins at your feet! Beauty isn't just the visible parts that the people can see, but it's important to start grounded and love every part of your body. Give yourself a good treat especially on areas that serve us most and receive the least care, coz they need our love too.

 No excuses for dry feet coz we ain't got time for that pedicure, or when you need an instant quick fix before an upcoming hot date or dinner party. Log on to Scholl's website to find out more. And click here for 10% discount at Redmart, if you purchase before 31 Oct 2015

Golden Jubilee

The year 1998, 
I was in Primary 5,
and one of the requisites of an 11 year old kid in Singapore was to attend the National Day Parade preview show. 
That show was the start of it all.

It was the 1st time I felt what patriotism was (in a less chimalogic expression)
when tears were just rolling down my face as we recited the pledge and sang our anthem.
As a kid, that was standard protocol every morning,
which really didn't strike me much.
Pretty much more like a chant that we learn and just follow.
But somehow, that night, that little Majulah Singapura seedling trigger something.

I felt so so so so blessed to be a part of something and somewhere so huge and great but yet so homely and comfy.
I felt safe and thankful.
Or perhaps it was the goodies loaded fun pack and McChicken burgers that sold me...
Just Joking. (technically, being a foodie kid that might have sold me)
But what really moved me was the songs, the singing.
The classic hits "Count on Me Singapore"
"Stand up for Singapore"
"This is my country This is my flag"
That eventually lead up to the pledge and anthem really got to me.
And from then on,
my dream was to stand on that National Stadium Stage and sing our National song.
Up till this very day,
this childhood dream holds strong and one of the reasons why I wanna be a performer.
I wanna do Singapore proud, 
contribute in my own way,
big or small,
and if I would have the honour someday to stand on that stage,
it would be my greatest greatest GREATEST privilege.

And this year we celebrate our Golden Jubilee with a long #redandwhiteweekend.
I started out our celebrations on the 1st August with the NDP preview show!!
Thanks to the Jean Yip Group who were part of this year's NDP parade, 
giving back to Singapore styling the performers hair,
we had tickets to the previews and actual show!
And the most exciting part of the show for our family this year is watching Aunty Dawn!
She was invited to sing at this year's NDP!!!
So so so proud of her and it's so meaningful cos it's SG50.

And when this came on screen, 
I was jumping up and down!!
Hey Hey is that our mata mata peeps!!!
I was in that uniform too!!!
Suddenly I felt like,
"I'm really part of history too!!"

That was really one of my greatest takeaway given the opportunity to be on mata mata,
a way in which I could be a part of and play out our history.

check out that cute photo bomber there. Our Nuffnang manager, Selina!! Haven't met this girl in ages, and that week, we so coincidentally met twice. haha can buy 4d.

Spent the #redandwhiteweekend watching the LKY musical.
The fact that it's our Golden Jubilee and the year we mark the passing of our founding father, the man behind everything we have now, pulled our heart strings. 
The LKY musical gave a good glimpse into the wave of struggles and tenacity Mr Lee and Singapore had.
It was indeed a time when no one saw that Singapore could make it, 
But We Did.
He built a nation strong and free....
Reaching out together in peace and harmony.....
*now altogether....*
"This is my country
This is my flag
This is my future
This is my life
These are my family
These are my friends
We are Singapore

On a separate yet similar note,
I always make it a MUST to wear red and white on national day yearly.
We're Singaporeans mah, must bask in the "ang ang mood" (ang= lucky red)
This year it's #redandwhiteweekend ootd for the long weekend!!

 Spent much of the Golden Jubilee filming,
and here's the mata crew (incomplete, missing Shu An, Rifat and Daren) wishing you and Singapore

Love You Much Singapore!!

Funtastic Family

Can't believe it's July is ending, and that's how late I am with this post! T'was sitting as my draft for like a month and since I couldn't get it out early July, shall wrap this July up on a colourful note :)
Our family always greet the month of July with a gastronomic affair coz it's Aunty Dawn's birthday, she's a food connoisseur, funnest aunt ever and THE most talented singer!! 


Theme for the night was Colourful!! With the prettiest and most colourful dessert spread that we were all lurking around the WHOLE entire night. No kidding man....was like a lion preying over the sweetest and most tempting macaroons, chocolates, cakepops, luscious creamy birthday cakes (so lions probably couldn't care less about dessets, but you get the idea). It was such a dilemma, can't wait for dinner to be over so we can feast on desserts, BUT,  Chef Mama's homemade Japanese omakase menu was simply too amazing and we just wanted more of it. HOW?!?!? Calories and being full wasn't the issue here, we wanted both the food and were preying over the desserts in between courses. Greedy right!! but how not to be greedy when everything is so good?? 

Presenting to you, Chef Mama's very own omakase dinner. Here's only some of the courses, greedy me ate up the rest. Mama's really creative and meticulous and SUPERWOMAN. She designed the menu, went to the market, cooked, and individually plated each course for 50 over peeps!! 

 And if you think the food and desserts are overwhelming enough. There's still games and dress up!!
Haha dressed papa and several other guys in Chinese Princess costumes and laugh all our calories away!! Papa attempting to be Chang er.....errrrrrrrrrrr


Thanks for always cracking us up papa but we prefer you like this... your beard didn't go too well with your Princess ootd. But no matter what you're always #onfleek

On a side note, had to post this last pic cos I'm loving this dress from Reformation so much. They're eco-friendly clothes that don't kill the environment. Their dresses are always perfectly feminine, with a subtle sexy touch. 

See you guys in August :)
