I started on my Invisalign Journey to Perfect Smile!

"I have My Chanel Bag in My Mouth!"

Growing up, I always wished I had perfect straight teeth like my sister! But everyone would compliment that my 😁teeth gave me that cute Jap face! 
I love to smile & they always say my smile can light up the darkest places. 

Until watching THE global makeup video I 📷filmed on E! Entertainment for Sephora, i made up my mind! And so my #Invisalign journey began~ 

No, I didn't choose Invisalign because it's MORE expensive (cost: $8-10k) than traditional braces. Over that Chanel bag. 
I didn't choose #veneers cos that's too shortcut! 

{Traditional braces vs Invisalign}
I easily chose Invisalign for 3 main reasons:
1) Avoid ulcers
2) Image: Look less like an adolescent
3) Won't get veggies stuck in between

1 year on, as compared to traditional braces, #Invisalign is a tad slower. Instead of metal on the teeth, I have 12 little resin attachments to my teeth. 
During mealtimes, I must remove my "aligners" (retainers alike) before I can eat. Initially it was such a disruptive new thing in my snack-loving life. Optimum wear 22 hours but I still scrape through daily with 18hours! Now I'm so used to it, part of me. 

👑👸🏻Beauty Bonus: My face became slimmer O! Haha
And yes 1 more year to go!

Bangkok Travel Diary

Bangkok here i come!!!

Love Bangkok for the cheap everything hahahaha ;p

Bangkok had always been an awesome getaway for Singaporeans cos of its low priced everything & 2.5hours flight away! 

Spent 3 full days in Bangkok to 

10 foods you must eat at Bangkok:

1. Annette Ice cream sticks just outside Platinum Mall! 

2. Ice Manias at Union Mall 
I chose the green tea rum raisin chocolate chips chocolate sauce combo! 
Minus the choco chips, everything is perfect! 

3. Mango Tango @Siam Square Soi 3
We had a full dinner after Ban Khum Mae & headed over for this refreshing heaven! 
It's packed with people although it's quite late already. 

Cool ambience I love it! 

4. Hello Kitty Sanrio Cafe @Siam Square One
Waffles & ice creams! Plus everything pink! 

5. After You Cafe 
(Siam Square One) 
The hottest coolest hangout place seen here really popular for couples, friends & family & u gotta go early to queue! 
But it's not too long a wait. 
The Shibuya honey toast with ur chosen toppings are well worth the wait! 

Crispy on outside soft moist inside.
And the servings are very generous with 2 scoops of ice cream. Great for two to share! 

6. Crabmeat wonton noodles
(At a roadside stall, at Thong Lo station outside Soi 38) 
Bangkok is famous with its roadside stalls & this crabmeat wonton Mee is my first! It is surprising easy to love with the fresh crabmeat & egg! The noodles portion is very small. Suggest to eat this for high tea snack time! 

This one we found just by walking the streets outside Union Mall & was served by this Thai Chinese family who are really hospitable & friendly. Generous portions of 6 wontons, lean pieces of char siew & again the noodles are soft & can be finished in 1 mouthful if ur mouth is big! Haha 

7. Ban Khun Mae
(At Siam Square Soi 3)

It's a huge restaurant & a lot of Singaporeans know this I guess. Cos we met many inside. 

The prices are very affordable & that HUGE fish is only S$14.65 (360baht) & I had so much happy moments savoring the whole of it to the last bits of bones, not sparing even the cheek flesh my fave! 

And the other fave is the fried mushroom! Oh my god! I could eat this everyday!!! 

Gotta try! 

We had the chef recommendation chicken satay too. It's kinda too much for me cos my tummy filled with fish. 
But the flesh is tender & char grilled to just nice. 
Don't like the sauteed kangkong (spinach they call it) as the plate is mainly stalks rather than leaves. 

8. Fried rice with Juicy Shrimps
(Centara watergate hotel plaza top level) 

I like my fried rice kinda moist & soft & this is just right! 
Cleared the whole plate, what do u think?
Plus there was Kpop dance practice by the school girls as side entertainment ;) 

9. Lee Cafe
(Suvarnabhumi Airport)
This is a restaurant of over 30years & served international food from western to Thai to Chinese. 
Couldn't resist the Tom yum goong lobster & it's soo worth it!! For its price S$14, definitely more than thumbs up! 
The lobsters are huge & the soup I'm missing it now! Not too spicy & we finished till the last drop! 

And I finally had my Phad Thai & this is the first time with Crabmeat!!! Oh my god! This is just heaven! I polished the plate yet again! 

10. Fresh Coconut 
What's Bangkok without coconut & Phad Thai? 
And it's the scorching heat u wanna combat with this coconut! 

Browsing the past trends that still remain current!

Mary Kay Singapore is 6 Years old!

Our Mary Kay Singapore is 6 Years Old! 
I’m thrilled & uber excited for its “brighter than stars” future it upholds. And coincidentally, as Mary Kay celebrates its 6th year in Singapore, I celebrate my 3rd Year in Mary Kay Singapore! I joined this amazing & caring company in March 2012. 
 This wonderful beauty company with a heart is founded by the legendary Greatest Woman Entrepreneur of History, Mary Kay Ash back in 1963, 52 years ago! Being voted by millions as “Forbes’ 100 Best Companies to Work For” & “Top 20 Global Consumer Brand Loyalty” is no accident. (The only beauty company in the Top 10, with #1 Amazon, #2 Apple, #3 Facebook!) http://www.businessinsider.com/brand-loyalty-customers-2011-9?IR=T&op=1 Mary Kay till today stands by & lives by its 4 solid core values. 1) Golden Rule : Do unto Others what U want Others Do Unto You. We always consider if it’s a win-win for both parties. 2) Balanced Priorities: God First, Family 2nd, Career 3rd. When you put ur life in perspective & give time to your most important things in life, Ur career will naturally soar high. We saw many high fliers left their jobs to pursue the simple life. Because all we want is to know that our lives do matter to others & impact lives. 3) Go-Give Spirit : Give without expecting returns. We go the extra mile to help another person who is of no direct interest to us. 4) Make Them Feel important : make them feel special & give them attention &
 A company with such values no doubt earns the title “Brands that Delight” & has long loyal following for many more 50 years to come!
