Mederma Proactive Gel Review

[Review] If there is something I can do over again .. it would be using scar repairing creams on all my old eczema scars! I had eczema when I was much younger and being a school girl then, I didnt really know much about beauty stuff or creams that help to heal scars. So I only wore long pants or jeans whenever I could as I wanted to cover up the ugly looking marks that the skin condition left me with. :(
Mederma Proactive Gel Review
Injuries are a part of everyday life: Cuts, lacerations, burns or abrasions happen every day and often lead to scar formation, leaving a visible mark on the skin. Untreated scars are more likely to be conspicuous and frequently cause physical discomfort like itching, tension, pain and restricted mobility. Scars are not only visually distracting but can also cause emotional strain.
Mederma gel is one of the leading scar treatments, recommended by doctors all around the world. The proactive gel formula is clinically proven to visibly reduce scarring. It treats both old and new scars effectively, reduces skin redness, and makes the scar softer, smoother, more elastic and less visible.

In Between

[Personal] Many moons ago, while I was still heavily pregnant but craving for my regular bowl of barachiraishi (sashimi rice), the husband and I found out that one of our acquaintances had actually opened a bar-restaurant serving the ever familiar bowl of bara that I have grown to love ever since I tasted my first bowl from Teppei Yamashita. 
Culinary-wise, we are an adventurous couple and to show support to the said acquaintance, we decided to make a trip down to the west to try their star dish, their own version of a barachirashi. Stepping in the dark mysterious restaurant, (mysterious because there wasnt a signboard to be found anywhere) we were greeted by a long bar counter where the customers could order a bowl of sashimi rice and a cocktail at the same time. Kinda Japanese-fusion gastropub. Interesting.

My Baby is growing up so quickly!

[Personal] Hi guys! I reckon I should be updating abit more on baby now.. coz he is really GROWING UP WAY TOO FAST! Yes.. he is barely 9 weeks now but it really feels like yesterday when we just brought him back from the hospital! Sometimes I look at his super newborn pictures and I compare with the baby infront of me .. and Im like,"Who is this!" Their looks change so much I can't even! 
Mandatory selfie picture with baby in car and heading out for lunch one afternoon. 
On another occasion, we also took him to a recent baby fair at Expo and while the fair was really disappointing, our outing was fun!

Sponsored Video : Lead the life you want by Physiogel

[Sponsored Video + Thoughts] To say that my life has not changed after becoming a mother is definitely un-un-unbelievable. 
I used to be a free-spirit, I could plan vacations at a moment's notice .. or do something at my whim and fancy, but after having a newborn - I dun think all these are possible without putting his needs first.  (I would like to think that I still can do those stuff, just not at the moment LOL) Even planning a dinner outing could result in a mini drama at home. Just packing baby's stuff to trying to change his diaper before leaving home - woe be to me if he decides to do an explosive number 2 just as we walk towards the door. But still.. a mother's love is all it takes to suck it up and do the things that I would never imagine myself doing for another human being.

The Present of Time with Wisma Atria - Editorial

[Editorial] Growing up under the care of a Teochew-Peranankan matriarch, also known as my mother - a good portion of my childhood was spent enjoying good food (any bibik worth her weight in gold will enjoy her food) and having leisure talks about fashion. I remember watching her dress up on weekends as she brought me out for tea and shopping and although she has modern tastes in fashion (she still has), the traditional Nonya kebaya has a very special place in her heart. I remember my mother telling me stories about my Peranankan grandmother leaving her a trove of personal kebayas in which she unfortunately, has misplaced and still regret til this day. Luckily my mum still kept my grandmother's gold "korongsang" well, and Im most fortunate to have inherited those marvellous vintage pieces when I got married and wore a red kebaya for the tea ceremony. It was like I wore a part of our family history with me that day.

Crabtree and Evelyn Hungary Water Eau de Cologne Review

[Review] Sometime ago as I was just getting into the gist of caring for another human being (and trying my best not to harm him LOL) - something arrived at my doorstep!
Crabtree and Evelyn Hungary Water Eau de Cologne
Accustomed to having receive baby hampers and diapercakes that couple of days.. I was super glad that something came FOR ME! Hahahah! Feeling neglected (kidding) coz everything was about baby! :p Finally I can open an adult present of my own and pretend its my birthday! Hahhaha I mean thats why we buy stuff online? So we can untie ribbons and open wrappers?? ROFL.
Ok back to topic.
A rejuvenating and classic blend of herbaceous notes.
The Heritage Collection
In the early Crabtree & Evelyn fragrance library, the first edition of Hungary Water was loved for both its aroma and compelling story. Set in the 14th Century the tale tells of a unique scented tonic presented by an alchemist to The Royal Monarchs of Hungary, along with the promise of eternal youth. With strange coincidence the King became famed for his youthfulness and the Queen for her beauty, allegedly bestowed by the tonic’s rejuvenating scent. Today’s second edition of Hungary Water continues the enduring legacy, taking influence from the original historical recipe, updated with a contemporary edge.

CNP Laboratory Propolis Deep Moisture Pack Review

[Review] Following my previous introduction to CNP Cosmetics from Korea (also see here : http://elaine73.blogspot.sg/2015/01/cnp-laboratory-propolis-energy-ampule-2.html) CNP kindly sent one of their most popular products, the Propolis Deep Moisture Pack for another review.. thanks Kat! I noticed this star product at the event launch as it has a rather unique fragrance, it reminded me of sweet smelling honey I suppose! So delicious!

A Day in a Life of My Baby ...

[Personal] Hi guys! Once again baby is having his nap time and Im trying to ninja my way here in my room to write a short post. So many things to blog about.. but so little time! I really shall try out blogging via handphone but Im quite old school in a way and I really like to type posts out with both hands on a keyboard ahaha! Anyways I am amazed with this motherhood thingy.. the joy of seeing your baby grow day by day is damn pretty awesome :) I've been meaning to write about my birth story but the pictures are currently with my hubby so I dun have them at the moment. Shall do so when he finally finds the time to pass them to me. I mean, we are at home everyday but time seems to fly by us like crazy! I have emails to reply and pictures of products to take for reviews but the moment the little one needs my attention, I have to be there. Sometimes I cant even take a shower in peace coz he wails when he doesnt see me. Arghhh. 
So what do I do everyday then? *Edited to add : I continued this post like, 2 freaking days later coz I was so busy! Ahhhh!*
My Typical Day with Baby
