Simple joy in life :)

Kingo kingo cleanser

On Monday, fashionably yours was at Isetan Scotts during my lunch hour.  They are having this Kingo Kingo promotions at Basement 1 till 6 May 2010.  This is a white volcanic ash cleanser for all skin type.  Bestie told me she finds it very clean after using it.  Thus I decided to try it out for myself.  Retailing at SGD28.

Close Up

I tried it out and find that it is very dry and harsh for my skin.  Thus not recommendable for everyday usage but don't mind to use it once a week for deep cleansing.  Followed by lots of moisturisers.  I still prefer my Fancl washing powder, which is mild, refreshing and moisturising.

Feel free to share with me your feedback if you have used Kingo kingo cleanser. 

Magazines & Freebies

On Tuesday fashionably yours walked past the news stand outside 313 Somerset during my lunch hour.  Saw they are having 8 days magazine promotions.

Bought this 8 days magazine

Bleeding left ear injury

Fashionably yours have an ear injury and is a bleeding left ear. My left ear was itchy so I digged it till it bleeds on Wendesday midnight. I was so terrified to see blood rushing out from my left ear.  The blood just keeps flowing out from my left ear.  It was so painful too that I couldn't sleep well that night.

On Wednesday morning, my daddy insisted that I go to see a ENT specialist.  Actually I don't want to see doctor because I find the blood has stopped flowing out from my left ear though feel painful and I couldn't hear clearly.  It was my daddy who insisted that I should see a doctor.  I told him I can go to work, never mind.  He said how can somebody with bleeding ear go to work and cannot hear clearly, so he brought his little girl to consult the ENT specialist.  If daddy did not come with me, I think most probably I would have gone to work at the office with a bleeding ear and tell people it is early halloween. 

So we went to consult the ENT doctor and I was given tetanus injection, prescribed with antibiotics and ear drops. 2 days mc to rest (Wednesday and Thursday).  On the way back home from the clinic, fashionably yours dropped by my office to bring back work to do which means I have been working from home for 2 days though on mc.  Have a lot of work to do because is peak period now.  Glad I cleared lots of stuff from home these 2 days. 

I still cannot hear properly and a painful left ear now.  Next time I shall not dig my ear again...NEVER.  The doctor said luckily my ear drum is not broke othewise I can become deaf.  My left arm is so sore and feel weak after the tetanus injection.  Yesterday when the doctor told me I need a tetanus injection, I almost burst to tears. I didn't expect to be injected. I asked the nurse, is it painful ? But still I am a BRAVE girl. Took the jab and did not cry. Now the side effect of my aching left arm.

My antibiotics which I must finish all of  it and my ear drops

Feeling so down with this left ear injury.  Just now received a funny text from my gf and it makes me smile. Kind of cheer me up. Thanks.  Another thing that perks me up today was the yummy nasi lemak lunch I had.  Guess good food will perk me up for now.  Wishing my ear recovers soonest possible and I hate the throbbing pain.  With my ear injury, just don't feel like going anywhere now.  So traumatic.

Last Monday of April 2010

It was so hot over the weekends.  Fashionably yours was sweating like mad and make me missing the air-con in my office.  Wish it would rain cats and dogs now.  It has been a hectic week at work last week that I am so drained mentally and physically tired that I just want to rest over the weekend to recharge my brain cells. 

Blur me woke up early last Saturday morning and thought it was Friday that I want to go to work.  Then I realized is Saturday, so relax and continue sleeping.  The effect of overworking and everyday looks the same.  *LOL*

I find this year pass very fast.  Now is already last week of April.  This Saturday is May day, a public holiday.  Yeah, my company is giving us off-in-lieu credit to our annual leave. 

Yawning....time for my beauty sleep now.  Nitey nitey.

Farewell Lunch for colleague

Last Thursday we had a farewell lunch at Applebees-Neighborhood-Grill-Bar for my dear colleague Lois-san.  I find the food tasted so-so but the service is good.  It looks more like a chill out place to hang out with friends for drinks, snacks and watch soccer match than a restaurant. 

L-san hamburger set cost SGD19.80

Lois-san pasta

My soup and french slider (beef with buns)
J-san soup and chicken wrap

We feel the price is steep.  I don't think I wanna dine there again but drinking and chilling out is ok.

Private Events and Dinner

Last Thursday evening, attended a private event to meet Beverly Feldman, one of my favourite designers.  Had an evening of fun and chatted with her up, close and personal.  Very happy and honoured to meet her indeed.   She autographed my pair of Beverly Feldman high heels and now my heels is worth a few thousand grand. 

Beverly and Me
Last Friday met up with K-san for dinner at Ichiban Tei at Liang Court.  I find the ramen at Ichiban tei is so-so only.  Still prefer the ramen from Ippudo at Mandarin Gallery.

K-san spicy ramen

After we had our ramen, fashionably yours had a strawberry yogurt Sherbert from a shop outside Ichiban tei.  Cannot remember the name of the shop though.

We chatted while I ate my strawberry yogurt sherbert.  Then we shopped at Mediya supermarket.  We bought some sushi to bring home to eat.  He bought some tidbits too.  It was nice catching up with him.  We will meet up again for more yummy dinner.

Yesterday passed by the new Gucci flagship store at The Paragon.  Actually was going to The Paragon to chillax during lunch hour with L-san.  In fact, fashionably yours has been inside the store a few weeks ago to browse at some Gucci accessories.

That's all the updates for now.  Time for me to zzzzzzzz......nitey nitey.  Have a great week ahead everyone.

Itchy, Bitsy Day

Fashionably yours had a very super busy morning.  First thing to see my dentist to fix my teeth.  Luckily somebody cancelled her appointment so they can slot me an appointment for this morning slot. That was what I was told by the clinic staff  when I called up yesteday morning to make an appointment.  Thank God for that and now I am a happy girl.  The dentist did 2 fillings for me and cost me SGD96.30 for about 45 minutes to get it fixed.  He advised me not to bite too hard and must be careful otherwise next time might need to do crowning which would cost me SGD450/-.  I don't know how I ate till I cracked my 2 tooth.  Well for the sake of good food and also on my journey to gain weight, I am a brave girl to visit my dentist to get it fix.  Today is my third visits to the dentist in this year. I have booked my next appointment with my dentist for scaling and polishing to be done in June 2010.  The dentist are always fully booked so advisable to book them in advance.  I think dentists make good money.  I should have studied very hard to become a dentist.  *LOL* bestie commented if I am a dentist, she dared not visit me because I surely don't have enough strength to extract tooth.  hahahaha.....

After I am done with my dentist visit, I went to see my company doctor for my itchy rashes on my leg.  The rashes has been there since Saturday.  Tried normal anti itch cream, but the rashes did not disappear and more and more come out each day.  Finally thrown in the towel and decided to see my company doctor after three days of endurance of the itch.  Look so ugly too...some rahes are big and some are small.  The doctor said it is allergic and sensitive skin. Gave me some anti itch cream, anti histamine and ask me to go home to rest.  Advised me not to eat seafood for the time being until the rashes are gone.  I am already so stressful after visiting my dentist and opened my mouth for about 45minutes for him to do 2 fillings.  Luckily the wait at the GP clinic is fast.  Done in about 20 minutes, so I headed to buy porridge for my lunch and home sweet home to rest.  Still itchy bitsy day *LOL*    SCRATCH...........

Though I am at home but I am still clearing my office emails, shooting emails here,there and everywhere, stressing people.  Working from home while resting at the same time. 

Now updating some of my recent happenings.

Finally I applied for my Watsons Card which one can earn points to redeem $$ to offset purchases.  At first I don't want to apply but after I realized that I indeed bought many things from Watsons, so proceed to apply.  It is only SGD5/- for a life time member.

My Chanel Eye Shadow and Chanel Lipstick

I really like Chanel lipstick and eye shadow.  Have been using them for years.  Feel free to share with me your favourite Lipstick and eye shadow.

It was raining just now so fashionably yours took a nap.  So blissful.  Now I am drinking my hot cup of white tea while blogging.  I prayed my rashes on my leg will disasppear soon. It is making me so itchy and it looks so ugly.  I hate the rashes. I will not eat seafood till I recovered fully.  Now I need lots of TLC.

Tomorrow is gonna be a stressful day. Lots of work to do in the office.  It is good to be busy at work, it shows you have a job and keep you going. Must think positively (grinning).

It is a rainy Saturday and fashionably yours is so loving this nice and cooling weather.  Nicer to sleep in this type of weather.  Just now I had a yummy cream of mushroom soup.  Such comfy food for a rainy day.

Yummy Cream of mushroom soup

Ma ma mia
Yesterday I had my favourite soya beancurd

Have been on a movie maranthon recently. Watching one movies after another.  Yesterday I watched Aladin. So funny and I laughed alot.  Rubbed the lamp, genie appeared and can grant you 3 wishes.  If the genie appeared infront of you, what 3 wishes will you wish for ?

Today I watched Eden.  A show about relationship between a married couple who have been married for 10 years.  Getting into a relationship is easier than maintaining the sparks in the relationship.  It needs lots of efforts from both parties.  Lots of communication, understanding and trust are important ingredients in a relationship. 

Sometimes watching movies can get one thinking out loud.  Besides entertaining, it is good the movies can let one reflects about life.  Or maybe it is just me who like to analyse things and see things beyond the surface. 

Wishing everyone a Happy Easter *hugs*

Easter Long Weekends

This is the long weekend in view of Good Friday, a Public Holiday.  Hope everyone is enjoying this long weekend.  The next Public Holiday will be one month later which is 1st May - Labour Day.  I read from the news that Universal Studio Singapore is full house because many people throng to Sentosa this long weekend.  I would not visit USS on weekend because so crowded and will be super long Q for the rides.  I don't like to squeeze with crowds so would choose to visit USS again on a weekday.  I really enjoyed myself at USS and so fairy tale at the castle.  Guess I am just so princessie (*blushing*). 

I don't understand why so many people like to go to Orchard during weekends.  Seems like they don't have other places to go.  As far as I am concern, I will avoid Orchad Road on weekends if I can avoid it, do not want to squeeze with the crowds, both human and traffic jam.  Afterall I am always in Orchard Road during weekdays.  It is my 2nd home :) 

Bought this AMICA magazine from Kinokuniya

Nuxe toner and a SGD20 beauty shop voucher

Has anybody used Nuxe products before ? If yes, please share your feedback with me. I have never used Nuxe products before so really appreciate your feedback very much.  Thanks.

Herewith wishing everyone Happy Easter and enjoy this long weekends *hugs*

Universal Studios Singapore

My company arranged an exclusive nights out at Universal Studios Singapore for us.  For three nights only from 30 March to 1 April, the theme park will be opened exclusively for our staff. This is a token of appreciation from the Management team for the hard work and contribution by our staff in the last year.

Fashionably yours visited the theme park on the first night which is on 30 March 2010 with my colleagues.  We had so much fun and so enjoyable.

My favourite castle at Far Far Away
Waterworld (sponsored by SingTel) - a ‘live’ action show featuring death-defying stunts with spectacular explosions of fire and water

Fashionably yours enjoyed the enchanted airway ride
Of course done some shoppings. How can shopping queen did not shop at USS.  My colleagues and I shopped happily at USS.  We hopped from one shop to the other.  Buy, buy, buy......

My shoppings

It was enjoyable and I would like to go again to visit this theme park.  Lots of things to do, see and of course the ride.  It is worth the visit.  fyi, the price is SGD72 for weekends and SGD66 for weekdays for an adult.  I think it is better to go on a weekday because cheaper tickets and not so long quene for the rides.
