Charee Lashes


I started to put on full make-up when I was 16, however putting on fake lashes was only 4 or 5 years back.

Initially it took about 15 mins to get 1 pair of lashes fixed on nicely.  It's always one eye perfect and the other one takes up a lot of time.  After a few practice, it's just a breeze of less than 2 mins.  Keep practising, trust me, it's worth it.

I always feel that it's very important for a lady to possess some make-up skills, you will enjoy selfies a lot more, heehee....

Back to the topic....., I love lashes, they give me big eyes without plastic surgery.   People who knows me will know that I am born with pea sized eyes.

I can't live without lashes, now Charee lashes are my new love.

Gorgeous Charee lashes!
There are 10 models to chose from, all retailing at a reasonable price of S$7.99 each pair including lash glue.

Charee lashes are very versatile.  Let me start off with natural look....

Charee Lash no.1045  S$7.99
Color: Black   Texture: Synthetic   Length: Medium   Thickness: Thin
Design:  Criss cross, lash length gradually gets longer from the inner to the outer eye

Without Charee lashes.
With Charee lash no.1045.

Big difference right?

This is how Charee lash no. 1045 looks like when I look down.

It's very natural looking with light make-up.  Great for office ladies or for weekends in causal outfits.
It's so light that I forgotten I am wearing lashes after a while.

Charee Lash no.7962  S$7.99
Color: Black   Texture: Human hair   Length: Short   Thickness: Thin
Design:  Lash bone is thin and the lashes are sparse for a natural look.

Wearing Charee lash no.7962.

Charee lash no.7962 is sparse in design which allows my natural lash to "blend" in.

I am wearing Charee lash no.7962, it's as comfortable as my Arale T-shirt.

Charee Lash no.4518 S$7.99
Color: Black   Texture: Human Hair   Length: Long   Thickness: Thick
Design:  Thin lash bone, longer and more lash strands the no.7962

If Charee Lash no.7962 is a day lash, Charee Lash no.4518 is a evening version of it.

An epic pic of one eye with lash, the other one without.
My nose looks enormous here >.<

Charee Lash no.7962 gives a feminine yet innocent look.

Charee Lash no.1313 S$7.99
Color: Black & Brown   Texture: Synthetic   Length: Long   Thickness: Thick
Design:  Criss cross design; lashes at the 2 ends are shorter with the longest length at the centre.

Wearing Charee Lash no.1313 in brown.
These lashes are so voluminous that I don't even need much eye shadow to enhance further.  The lashes are fanning my cheeks beautifully each time I blink.  电死你 有木有!

Men don't really notice if you change your hair color (blacks and browns looks the same to them unless you do something shocking enough) or put on different color lipstick (men are color blind).  But if you put on fake lashes.... YES!  Men and everybody will notice right away!

I am saying these cos' my hubby once looked at me and said: "It's amazing how those few strands of little hair can make such a big difference."

Left pic botak eyes without lashes against right pic eyes with Charee lashes.
Enuff said.
Charee lashes gives eyes those definition and sparks with a instant charm every woman desire.

Spize Bedok

Date of visit: 14 & 28 Jun 2014

Bedok Simpang, we were there again!

This place attracts me like a magnet.  Parking is relatively easy as long as we reach before 6pm.

We had tried Ayam Penyet RiaBadoque.
Also Enak and Soon Huat Bak Kut Teh which I didn't review for these two.

Moving on, next to Enak is it's strong competitor Spize.
Spize "marked" their territory with a vast of orange tables, attracting non-Muslim locals as well as some tourists.  The whole place was bustling with lots of busy serving staffs and hungry eaters.  It's fascinating to peep into their open concept kitchens.  I like to kaypo and see what dishes other people order.

Their big and thick book of menu contains asian and western dishes, a lot to chose from.
So much so that I had to visit 2 times.

So here's my flood of food pics
Ice Teh Cino S$2.80
Behind was roti-john we ta bao for our kids.  We saw other tables having it.  The presentation on the plate was mouth-watering which ta bao couldn't have.   My kids gobbled up in satisfaction any way.

Chicken Satay (10 sticks) S$7.00

Gado Gado S$3.50
So long never eat this.  I would call it our Malay appetiser.  Beneath the satay sauce were tofu, soybean cakes, pressed rice (same as lotong), some long beans, some bean sprouts, hard boiled egg and some prawn crackers at the side.  It's a very interesting combination with a bit of everything in it.

Tom Yam Seafood S$12.50
We were surprised by the huge portion.  This pot alone was good enough for 2 pax with 2 bowls of rice.  May be not authentic, but spicy and sour soup base was good with chunks of fish slices and loads of sotong in it.  You can see 2 big prawns and a half crayfish here!  SUPER VALUE!!  便宜到笑...

Second visit.  Under my influence (not sure it's good or bad >.<), hubby picked up the habit of taking food pics.
Then he loaded them onto OpenSnap.

Ice Chendol Sling S$2.80
We were "fighting" silly over palm seeds, only to realise there were 4 inside!  Normally there's only 1 or 2 in a serving.  In case you are wondering, palm seed is a greyhish chewy pebble thingy, chinese called 亚答子.

Nasi Goreng Kampong S$6.00
One mountain of fried rice good for 2 pax with crispy ikan bilis and a sunny up.  Fried rice was too soft for our liking, but that chilli was OMG.  It's fire spicy with a tinge of lime, damn power.

Holding a crayfish coated with black pepper sauce =P

Black pepper crayfish S$20.00
Crayfish were deep fried with a thin coat of batter then stir fried in black pepper sauce with green/red peppers and onions.  I am not a fan of black pepper, but this was not bad.

Stir fried baby kailan S$7.00
It came in one enormous heap good for 3 to 4 pax, hur hur.

Spize have another outlet at River Valley but I am not sure if there's air condition or ambience similar as Bedok.  If you are a easterner check out Spize Bedok ~~

Hand Chemistry


We are living in a era of plastic surgeries and botox where a lot of people can look incredibly young nowadays.  But those pair of hands can betrayed faces, revealing signs of aging.

We uses our hands every day and they are expose to all sorts of threats.

You may be a office lady, who types and do endless filing; with hands wrinkled like dried prunes under the aircon environment.

You may be a home maker; no matter how gentle those detergents claims to be, your hands feel like sand paper.

You probably love doing manicure, but always gets moody looking at your hands with dark skin tone and full of fine to deep rings of lines.  No color or nail art seemed to go with them.
Retail price S$35.00

Hand Chemistry is a concentrated hand cream with active complex which targets 8 signs of hand aging simultaneously.

The rich white cream spread out easily with a citrus fragrance.  Surprisingly, it's not sticky at all, skin feels satin smooth after application.

I used Hand Chemistry every night before bed time since 25 Jun, and here's the result on 8 Jul.
 Less wrinkly, obviously not so dry and slightly fairer ^.^

Here's another close up pic.
 I scrubbed the toilet, banged myself and left a little black scar on my finger.  Applying Hand Chemistry religiously lighten the black mark quite a lot!

Satisfied with the visible results in just less than 15 days, Hand Chemistry is now part of my beauty regime.
纤纤玉手 beautiful hands is in this tube of Hand Chemistry.

Trick Eye Museum at Resort World Sentosa

Date of visit: 18.06.2014

I know there's going to be a long queue.  I know it's going to crowded but I die die need to go. Trick Eye Museum was having 50% discount which was going to end soon.  I tried to bluff myself that it's not going to be that bad on a weekday >.<

I had my "Save Money Mission" planned out nicely~~

1) Take MRT to Harbourfront, then take the express train (no taxi);
2) Queue and secure the tickets first (50% discount!);
3) Have lunch at Malaysian Food Street (cheaper than restaurants);
4) Dilly dally a bit and wait for our time slot to get into Eye Trick Museum, YAY!
5) Back to VivoCity and wait for our chauffeurs to drive us home (FOC transport).

Flawless.  But 人算不如天算, I started to screw up (again)........

It's a Wednesday about 11am, no seats inside our International MRT.  By the word International, I don't mean it's standard (of course), I mean the passengers.  We had China, Thailand, Europe, Indonesia, Philipines blah blah blah, you name it, King Luis and I were with it.  Nobody likes standing for 1 over hour, be it you are young or old, pregnant or not.  It sucks, but for "Save Money Mission" have to endure.

I tried to shut myself away by reading a book.  It worked initially, but when my stomach started to churn it's way to it's exit, urrgg...... not able to tahan till Harbourfront, we dropped off at Lavendar station.

Shit (for real).  After releasing whatever I need to release, I know it wasn't possible to hop back into the MRT unless we want to kiap ourselves between the doors and humans.

"Save Money Mission" aborted, we took a cab.  It was so comfortable, so very the comfortable...
 We reached Sentosa in less than 15 mins.

This was the queue and the ticket booth was not in sight.

My sis was already at the queue for half an hour.
I walked further down, saw the ticket booth finally and found my sis with my noisy niece and nephew ^.^

Pull Karsten's leg.

Gotten our tickets around 1pm, time slot for entry was 4pm.
 The 50% discount was a big saving, paid S$25 instead of S$50 for 2 adult tix.

Happily, we whisked the kids to Malaysian Food Street for lunch.
It's closed, I couldn't believe it  #@&^%$*  (swallowed down all the vulgarities cos' children around)
It's close on every Wednesday TT________TT
"Save Money Mission" failed, again, twice in a roll.

Lunch was settled at Pisco.
The kids fidget too much and didn't really eat.  But the food was really good, will do a separate post on it.

After lunch, I put everybody in this dessert bar, trying to "conserve" their energy as much as possible.
Atas shop front, hawker standard's service, chopped carrot pricing.
Banana crepe with ice-cream was S$17.90.

Then we had great fun with the selfie stick.
Every passer-by was looking at our direction.  Funny, is selfie stick that rare?!?

We were talking non-stop, running after Karsten non-stop.  Before we know it, it's time to go into Eye Trick Museum.
This was the crowd.

I kept saying sorry throughout cos' I kept blocking people's camera.  Unintentionally of course.

To be considerate for others, it's snap and go, snap and go at each station, thus it's difficult to get good photos.  Able to get clear photos already 偷笑.  As much as I love taking pictures, the crowd got me tired in less than 2hrs' time and only stopped over at certain stations.

While I was editing the photos, I realised I could create a story with all the photos, so here you go!!
Witch Susan's Adventure

Once upon a time, there was a witch called Susan who lives in a Wonderland, somewhere on earth.

Everyday was play day.

In Wonderland, nobody needs to work cos' nobody needs money.  Almost everything could be obtain from witch craft.  She had all shoes, all bags, endless clothes that every girl dream for.  But Witch Susan was lonely.
She always wonder how's the outside world like...

One day, Witch Susan chanced upon a book about the outside world.

 Curiosity was killing her and she decided to leave home to see and experience them herself.

Witch Susan wanted her friend MoMo to come with her, but MoMo said he was too fat, he couldn't get through the Twilight Tunnel, the exit of Wonderland.

So, alone,Witch Susan left Wonderland through the Twilight Tunnel and started her adventure...
She was the first witch who left Wonderland.

Witch Susan travelled on her beloved broom, but little did she realise, the farther away she was from Wonderland, the weaker her witch craft and power became...

One night, an anaconda appeared from nowhere.  Witch Susan wasn't afraid of course.

She killed the beast with her broom, but at the same time, broke it.  A witch was no longer a witch when her broom was broken.  She was an ordinary human being without any magic power.

Witch Susan wasn't despaired, she travelled by a horse, like every human being would.
Dangers were waiting for her...

She encounter many vicious beasts.  Climbing up a tree was the best way to avoid them.

However, this day, she climbed up a bamboo which was too smooth to grip on, she slide down and was being captured by a T-rex.

The T-rex decided to keep Witch Susan for supper.

A kind mammoth saw what was happening and chased after the T-rex for 3 days 3 nights.

The wicked T-rex fell down the cliff while trying to run away.  Witch Susan was saved.

Witch Susan had lost all her powers including making food from air.  Although witches don't need to eat everyday, one month away from Wonderland was long enough to make her hungry and weak.

So, she worked as a ballet dancer and that was her first job ever.  The ballet troop left for another city a few weeks later.  Witch Susan didn't follow them, she collected her earnings and continued her adventure.

There was this bald ugly man tailing Witch Susan trying to rob her.  With a swift movement, the witch pulled down his pants and the robber screamed like hell.

Although Witch Susan was unharmed, her impression towards males were very bad then.

Witch Susan reached a city.  No vicious beasts but giant humans!
Witch Susan was being caged by a giant baby and forced to sing till her throat went dry everyday.  She managed to escape when the cage's door was loosen.  She run and run non-stop through the night until she was sure she was no longer in Giant Human City.

Witch Susan found herself in Female City where only females live here.  She meet Mona Lesbian and fell in love with each other.
However, Witch Susan felt that long distant relationship would not last, she need to go back Wonderland one day.  Mona Lesbian was broken hearted, but let Susan go, and renamed herself Mona Lisa, L.I.S.A. means -


So now you all know where the term "lesbian" comes from.

Witch Susan was physically and mentally drained off.  She need to go back to Wonderland, on her feet, without her broom.  Just as she was feeling troubled, she meet a giant swan.
Witch Susan told the giant swan about Wonderland.  It occurred to the giant swan that it sounded like a good chance to go to Wonderland.  The swan carried Witch Susan and flew towards Wonderland.  Merely a hours later, the swan gave up, cos' Susan was too heavy >.<

Nothing is ridiculous in a fairy-tale, the giant swan decided lend it's wings to Witch Susan.  The swan shrink itself, rest and relax inside the front pouch of Susan's shirt while Susan took over the wings to fly.

The bicycle was the GPS, cos' Witch Susan's sense of direction was pretty hopeless.

Witch Susan made it back to Wonderland, finally.

  She regained her powers and gotten herself a new broom.
  The giant swan lived happily ever after in Wonderland too.  Once in a while, Witch Susan would still borrow the swan's wings, not for flying but for photo taking >.<  She loved to pretend herself as an angel.  But she knew she would never be an angel, she's a witch and it's in her blood.

~~~ THE END ~~~
