I remembered seeing their advertisement at Clementi Mall about the various types of hair & scalp treatments and was looking forward to the treat!!! In fact, they have existed for more than 5 years and have outlets in Wheelock Place & Novena Square too!

TK treats more than just hair loss. They have many treatments there. Just do a free scalp diagnosis to find out what you need! Could be itchy scalp, oily scalp, dandruff, weak damaged hair.

I chose Wheelock Place as I had appointments/ meetings there in town.


Went to the outlet and their service crew were so patient & polite.

It was a 1.5hour treatment which felt more like 15mins!!!
Because the process was so blissful ^_~ I wish it could have been longer...=_=


First, they led me to the room for a Scalp Diagnosis. (my phone was lagging that moment, so no capture of images for you to view) I knew my hair is pretty healthy & silky smooth.
Not sure about my scalp.

The consultant told me my scalp is clean & generally healthy, with just a little oil at follicles. She says its normal and everyone's scalp needs to have a certain level of oil.
She will do a Scalp Rebalancing treatment for me.

Then she led me to my seat where she sat me down and gave me my robe.

Then she mixed me a bowl of aromatic Scalp Rebalancing Essence for me.

She separated my hair by parts and massaged the essence oil onto my scalp via a brush & fingers. It smells awesome!!! ;) Leave on for 5-10mins.

Rinse off thoroughly and proceeded with giving me something that made me feel like heaven~
The powerful mint shampoo!!!
She warned that it's mint and will be very cooling.
Then as she massaged I felt like all my thoughts are cleared and all I want to do is dream away~~~
It's SHIOKNESS!!!

I luve the scalp, neck & shoulder massage she gave me! I must have been overworked these 2 months that this massage came as overdue! ^_~

She gave me haircare tips which serves as reminders.
1) Thou shalt shampoo hair every night, not morning as came back from outside there's dirt. Once a day.
2) Condition only at ends, never on scalp.

After rinse, went back to my seat and she gave me a Scalp Calming Serum by spritzing onto the scalp. Shiok again! Haha

Then she blowed dry my hair very nicely.


While having the treatment, I took pictures, tweet, instagrammed, and told my friends how awesome it is!!! MUST GO!




To finish off, I was put under Hot Infrared Light treatment all around me like an Mars alien for 15mins.


This helps to boost blood circulation & the product penetration!!! ;)))





After such a heavenly hair treat, I floated out of the salon feeling super sexxyyyy!!! Like you can CONQUER THE WORLD! (Simply on cloud nine...)




I know how an awesome haircut feels for a woman!
Now I know how an awesome hair treatment feels too!!!




Rating: 4/5
Why 4? Cos only once. If a series of treatments every 2 weeks or monthly, I can share more about my scalp progress & hair condition. ;) from one treatment, this is what I have experienced!

AT THE TK TRICHOKARE HAIRCARE TALK on 21.10.2012 Saturday 1-3pm

Makeup Demystified: Hyuna Makeup in PSY "Gangnam Style" MV




Who hasn't seen this video has been living in a CAVE!
I was walking past the video shops, IT roadshows, surfing on facebook, websites... this is EVERYWHERE!

In case, you are wondering wth they are singing about ...
The lyrics:

A girl who is warm and human during the day
A classy girl who knows how to enjoy the freedom of a cup of coffee
A girl whose heart gets hotter when night comes
A girl with that kind of twist
I’m a guy
A guy who is as warm as you during the day
A guy who one-shots his coffee before it even cools down
A guy whose heart bursts when night comes
That kind of guy
Beautiful, loveable
Yes you, hey, yes you, hey
Beautiful, loveable
Yes you, hey, yes you, hey
Now let’s go until the end

Eh- Sexy Lady, Oppa is Gangnam style
Eh- Sexy Lady oh oh oh oh

A girl who looks quiet but plays when she plays
A girl who puts her hair down when the right time comes
A girl who covers herself but is more sexy than a girl who bares it all
A sensable girl like that

I’m a guy
A guy who seems calm but plays when he plays
A guy who goes completely crazy when the right time comes
A guy who has bulging ideas rather than muscles
That kind of guy

Follow us: @kpoplyrics_net on Twitter | kpoplyricsnet on Facebook



And WAYY is this MV such a craze trend?? So much that its running through your head all day and you still can't get ENOUGH of it? 
HIGHLY ADDICTIVE. EXPLOSIVE . HILARIOUS


"Oppa, gangnam style!"Or... new version featuring Hyuna

"Oppa, ttatnae style!"

Oppa: an cutely affectionate term for boyfriend or brother
Gangnam Style : Beverly Hills of Korea (affluent circle)
Ttaenae Style : You are my style


Of cos its the Dance steps PSY came up with! The fake-horse ride dance!
Timing . Right Tune . Everything.

PSY
He is a singer-dancer-songwriter for almost a decade but until Gangnam style, the world sits up and takes notice. Even Justin Bieber is doing a collaboration sooon with PSY.
Super hilarious guy who is big sized but so agile when he dances. In a hilarious way with a twist of humour in it for sho! (see 1st video at 4:19)

HYUNA
And she? Hyuna, member of 4 Minute. Her own Solo "Bubble Pop" brought her to public criticism or obsession for her provocative voice & dance moves. Very good at moving her lithe body.
Some people say she acts like a slut. But why get so worked up & jealous for her?
Its all for entertainment value. Just like Ayumi in her concert, Lady Gaga & Madonna who have awesome stage presence, behaves & dances like that on stage. Its an act, not her personality.
It's ONLY a dance, why be so serious?! Don't we all LUVE ENTERTAINMENT & ENTERTAINERS?!

Back to talking about MAKEUP!
My fave topic!!!!!!







As seen here, pretty simple natural look she has.
The smoothness of her skin is enhanced by the clever lighting used in most Korean MVs, very fairy ethereal perfection.


FACE: Flawless smooth perfection. Luminous only on eyelids, enhanced nose bridge (Diamond Beauty Nose Makeup, Guardian S$24.90) & top of cheekbones
Primer is a MUST here. (Highly recommended: Mary Kay Foundation Primer S$40, Hourglass Mineral Primer S$78)
Foundation that is micro fine is a MUST MUST here too. (Mary Kay Mineral Foundation S$35, DiorSnow Foundation S$105) Anything too heavy looks fake.

BRONZER: Urban Decay Toasted Bronzer S$40

BROWS: Camouflaged. Lightened to look almost non existent. Ways to lighten brows: Use a concealer or brow concealer (Diamond Beauty 01, Guardian S$24.90) or stick foundation to lighten your brows. Then fill it in with a light caramel brown eyeshadow (Mary Kay Hazelnut eyeshadow S$13, PM me for orders)

***IMPT***


EYES: The Key Feature of her entire sexy glamorous look.
~ Its kept very simple. Champagne eyeshadow on lids. Liner extended at corners in an innocent droopy cat eyes style, both top & bottom lashline, shimmer pearl on inner 1/2 of eyes, glitter (butterfly/ star/ heart/ flower) using high glitter liner or diamante glued under eyes. Mascara for top lashes only.

& of course, those sexy LIPS. Don't you wanna KISS her?

AFTER THIS MAKEUP,
LET'S DANCE!!!

The horse dance!
Who wants a ride now? ^_~

Oh don't forget to pull out a glittery short dress to look totally party ready! HAWT!

P.S. Here's my inspired PSY Gangnam Style /Hyuna Look done with eyeliner & jewels! Like?? ;) LUVE!

小女孩

每个女人潜意识里隐藏着一个淘气的小魔鬼

女人真正想要的?

每17至70岁的女人,都隐藏着一个小女孩在她的心里, 纯真
随着年龄的增长,他们隐藏甚至更多,害怕受到伤害,她的清白
随着日子一天天过去,他们忘了里面存在一个小女孩
女人应让他们的小女孩里偶尔出来玩,从不介意别人如何对他们的看法,这个世界是如何看待他们,只是做他们爱

Every woman's subconscious mind hides a little naughty devil.

What women really want?

Every woman from 17 to 70 years old, all hides a little girl in her heart, pure & genuine.
As with age, they hide it even more, suppress it, afraid that her innocence be hurt.
As the days go by, they gradually forgot the existence of a little girl inside.
Women should let their little girls inside occasionally come out to play, never mind how others think of them, just do what they love & be themselves.

Pattern

"Once is chance, twice is coincidence and thrice is a pattern."

It takes years of preparation to be ready for The Opportunity.
Yet to others, it seems success is overnight & the winner is lucky.

Luck will only be useful if you prepared well enough for it.

It wasn't that he is in hiding. It was that the world had not been paying attention.

Unlock my heart~

*writing Song lyrics for a friend's tune.
Lyrics by Gel

Missing you but too shy to say.
You unlock my frozen heart, now it starts to sway.

I am touched but my actions sometimes come out cold.
I want to accept all ur sweetness but "Don't rush" I was told.

Are you the One, I've been waiting for?
Thinking of you time seems to crawl.
My heart & mind like to fight,
Making my lips too tight.

Missing your messages I check my phone.
None from you...and no ringing tone.
Did i do something wrong?
Because the wait has been so long.

I think I went too far in acting cold.
Perhaps things change too fast I didn't know.
Tell me, what should i do now?
I have feelings for you... so how?

Weeks passed.. I need a closure.
I really like you that's for sure.
Ask me out let me say yes,
For my heart is still in a daze.

xxxxx

Me vs Us

You can choose one.
1) Work hard for your own living & sometimes feel alone in the battle
2) Share your skills & leave behind a Legacy by sharing your skills, helping others to succeed. Feel connected.

GD X PARIS

Whoa... this is what I call trendsetter fashion forward daring fashion icon true performer! Korea is awesome in styling, dont ya think? Luve x million times!!! ~ xoxo, MakeUpByGelainza Beauty Editor Live Your Dream

Getting married?? Are you married?

Yes I do get this question so often.
Never did it bug me much (even if everyone around me still puzzled with my singledom) since career is more important.

Until recently I decided to set a long term goal that I will set aside time & set priorities for my love life. That I will get married in 2 years time.
At the end of the day, I do want someone to hug, to take care of me & love me with all his heart and me doing the same for him too. It has to be the right man.

Have i got someone special in mind?
Have anyone captured my heart yet?

2 years means u need to be attached now!

Not necessarily. For me, to know well & become comfortable with someone is quite fast.
Once I'm comfortable, I open up my heart easily.
If you haven't get through that stage, there is a barrier you need to first break. Might be a challenge for most guys. (my gfs yesterday say in the mouse-cheese race, you need to at least let the mouse take a snif at the cheese to know if the cheese is worth the chase! & I apparently don't even give them the chance to come near, let alone sniff!) There u go, i luve honest feedback!

One guy friend of mine told me that day over coffee while we were talking abt each other's love lives, that I give people the impression I am either "happily taken" or a signal to guys "dont bother come near"! He said I am a super confident, smart & attractive woman who has most guys' dream girl attributes but I'm like high up on the heavenly altar & won't let anyone come close! I didn't realise that! So how exactly did I do that?? Share with me?

Its a whole different story once we are a couple. I can only say, my affections are 200% worth persisting for. ;p seriously. I'm both passionate about my career & the love of my life.

I somehow have a penchance for men in sales/ business becos somehow people with same selling skills just clicked! I believe mindsets & values are important in building a strong relationship.

I strongly feel that women shouldn't be bound by biological clock. I'm in no rush to get attached & be pressured into one. I believe the right person would show up in time, according to God's plans. He will show me the way. And it will all feel just right.
