The sun in our Singapore is burning hot. It has been especially so these few weeks. I always try to stay out of the sun to prevent aging and to keep myself fair. But of course there are times when we still want to have fun in the sun or when we don’t have much of a choice right? I can’t be a vampire hiding in my coffin with curtains closed all the time.
And I’ve found a solution… get some sun protection!
Introducing Sunplay Super Block SPF 130
Yup you didn’t read it wrongly. Its SPF 130.
High protection against 3 signs of sun damage!! Instead of slathering on lotions after the damage is done, remember to put on unblock to minimize the damage. Prevention is better than cure!
How to use it?
And also the ingredient list for the scientifically wired.
Sunplay Super Block SPF 130 has got the Japanese watery, liquid texture formulation.
It is light like water and non-greasy, unlike other suncare products in the market. It is also easily absorbed and does not clog pores.
The watery lotion is quickly absorbed leaving o white cast like some sunscreens does. There’s not uncomfortable feeling too.
Now I do not have to worry about getting tan and having damages to my skin!
Sunplay’s range of products available to different purposes!

Thank you Jones for helping me get my I.Fairy lenses! It’s my first time trying a pair of contacts with 16.2mm diameter. I always stick to my Geo lens with a 14.5mm diameter because i’m worried that beyond that it will be too big. But to my surprise, I like it! I asked Jon if it looks weird. He thinks that it’s quite ok too! (And I went on to buy a few more pairs… Haha..)
I.Fairy Star Series in Brown
The kawaii star shape design
With the lenses on… Super duper pupil-enlarging. Good for those looking for the doll eyes effect.
Took this photo before going for a photo shoot (Actually it was to show the funny hairstyle…) wearing my I.fairy lens!
It was awesome trying out Naruko’s products. (Read my review on Naruko Raw Job’s Tears Supercritical CO2 Whitening Mask) I’ll be reviewing Majoram and Lavender Lotion Dew and Marjoram and Lavender Brightening Serum in this post.
Majoram and Lavender Lotion Dew and Marjoram and Lavender Brightening Serum
Majoram and Lavender Lotion Dew - $21.90
I love the packaging! After removing the cap, there’s an additional little stopper. Very hygienic!
Watery and light texture
Benefits of Majoram and Lavender Lotion Dew:
1) Improves dark spots and uneven skin tone
- Contains vitamin C Glucoside and Ellagic acid to reduce melanin buildup.
2) Antioxidants ups the skin’s defense system
- Increase skin’s defense from dust and other harmful environmental factors. It also forms a thin layer of moisture which keeps skin hydrated.
3) Gives the skin a soft, dewy and glowing look
- A brightening base for the skin and it increases the absorption for serum and lotion.
There are 2 ways to use Majoram and Lavender Lotion Dew. Pat it on your face with a cotton pad as shown above,
Use it like a mask. Pure indulgence.
Marjoram and Lavender Brightening Serum - $26.90
Comes in a dropper bottle. I love products that comes in a dropper bottle because its very convenient and very hygienic since there’s no skin contact at all.
A milky texture which is light and quickly absorbed by the skin.
Benefits of Marjoram and Lavender Brightening Serum:
1) High efficiency moisturising
- Locks moisture within to keep skin hydrated at all times.
2) High efficiency purifying
- Brightens the skin and improves dullness
- Increase the skin’s natural defenses and prevents melanin formation
4) High penetration
- Increases the skin’s absorbency
My review after trying out Majoram and Lavender Lotion Dew and Marjoram and Lavender Brightening Serum for more than a month:
After trying out the products, my skin has got less uneven patches and my skin is significantly brighter. I love to pat the lotion on my face generously after showering. It is very refreshing and prepares my skin for the other products. My skin feels hydrated and supple after application and love the calming effect it has on my skin. There were significantly lesser clogged pores and whiteheads after a week of application.
Both of these products has a a luxurious lavender scent. Don’t worry about it being too strong, it is not. It’s light and refreshing and adds on to its calming effect. Just like aromatherapy! Smell is very important to me when I’m selecting a product!
Do like https://www.facebook.com/narukosg for more updates on their skincare products. Alternately, you can visit their website http://www.naruko.sg/ to find out more and purchase from their range of products that are catered to your different needs.
Cheers to glowing skin!!! Naruko is loves… Highly recommending it!
Look who’s 2 years old already?! My little nephew Ocean!
When we reached, they were already playing in the pool!
My sister and me.
I didn’t bring my swimming stuff along so I couldn’t go and play in the water…
So Jon and I were enjoying the nice outdoors and having our drinks and food while the rest were frolicking in the pool.
And of course to be the photographer for them!
The beautiful grannies!
T-shirt: Zara… Only $19.90! I love the phrase on the tee.
Shoes: H&M About $35 if I didn’t remember wrongly. Jon Jon chose it for me and it was a love at first sight.
Love the sneakers! And its super comfy.
Wahaha I want nicer nose.
Contact Lens: Freshkon Blooming Pink
I was skeptical when excited to try out pink colour lenses. It looked surprisingly natural! Love it.
But if you are looking for the super big diameter Barbie eyes kind of lenses, this pair’s enlarging effect is negligible. It’s diameter isn’t very big. But if you like your eyes more natural, you can try it!
Here’s the birthday boy all dressed up after his swim. What a pose he has. hahaha…
The 3 princesses.
Summer trying to be a Superman with Jon’s help.
Me and Mummy dearest…
Cake cutting time! My sister and her family!
Papa couldn’t come because he was a little under the weather.
Went to hide indoors after the makan session and the 2 uncles were playing with the Transformer masks that I bought for the 2 year old! Hahahaha…
That’s All Folks!
Happy Birthday Ocean cutie!!! \(^^)/
I was so cracked up by this article at cracked.com and I have to share it with you and blog about it!
Read the original here!!http://www.cracked.com/blog/5-favors-people-love-to-offer-that-no-one-wants/
Funny as it is…I’m guilty of all the 5 favours offered that no one wants too. Hahahaha….
I love #4. Offering to Go With You, if You Can Just Wait for Like Five Minutes because I really love solitude and love the little bubble i built around myself. Don’t be mistaken! I don’t hate people. I love the people I love (废话 I know..) and I have my own favorite people that I would die to have them with me. But other than that, I actually like my little solitary moments. I need those moments throughout the day, like little breaks, especially if I’m around people and making small talks all the time. And small talks…I’m so bad at them. That’s another reason why a not-very-familiar-person wanting to accompany me to anywhere is not welcomed. I feel more comfortable staring blankly into the sky, looking at the ants crawling on the footpath, daydreaming, with or without my iPod earphones plugged into my ears.
And… I don’t want to wait for 5 minutes… If I can. Because it will be more than that. Sorry…
And my next favourite is #3. Lending You Books, Music or Movies You Don’t Want. You know, taste is a very subjective thing. As much as you love a novel, a song or a film very much and swears by it, it may not be the same for another person. Have you ever been on a public transport and bumped into teenagers who are blasting their favourite teen pop icon’s mp3 through their phones (through the speakers mind you, not using earphones of any sorts)? And you yourself, perhaps a lover of bossanova. Yup. That’s exactly the feeling I get when someone “shares” his or her favourite music with me (and I speaking from the point of the bossanova lover in the above example). And don’t forget the fact that I have to waste 4 minutes of my life finishing the song and trying to be nice and polite.
And lending it to me…I won’t know what to do with it other than to let it gather dust. I’ll definitely be thick-skin and ask you to lend it to me if I want to borrow. I’m thankful but… you know.
Anyway… I’m going to share some of my favourite sites which I frequent to read short and interesting articles:
I’m doing up my own list too! Will blog about it soon since I’m almost half done! Happy reading!
And I’m so going to do up my own list soon!…Not exactly favours though… My own list of things!
Before anything… I must show you this first…
My Rilakkuma soft toys that has taken permanent residence at one side of my Dear’s bed. Hahaha…
Haven’t met up of the girls for a while because Min is having her exams and finally its over! We arranged for a tea session at TWG. The queue was really long on a Sunday.
Buddies! How can I live without them…
I decided to be girly that day with a white dress. Rare phenomenon.
Min and me
I love how she paired her cream maxi dress with a denim vest!
Darling Shishi n Min
Attended an event and decided to head to Jbar to meet my sister and Cheryl for a short while since I was at Tanjong Pagar and was really near them!
Hat: $35 from Ion (can’t remember the shop’s name!) It was the last piece in the store and had to get it although I find it a little expensive.
Knit top: H&M
White Lacy shorts: My buddy bought a few in of these shorts in different colours for me from China!
Brown Oxford Heels: H&M (Just got them 2 weeks back! Love them.)
Vintage Lacy socks: Got them during my KL trip last December.
The sweet Dearie who came to pick me up after my event: From Jurong and priceless. Hahahaha
There’s my buddy Jez @ JBar performing!
Cheryl, me and my sista!
Did I mention that Cheryl was my childhood friend? We were neighbours from our old estate… Miss the days when we run around bare feet without a care in the world!
Another review of one of my favorite brands… Lovemore Masks! This times its the Lovemore Electric Ore Peptide Duo Lifting Mask!
Lovemore Electric Ore Peptide Duo Lifting Mask
Always loves the cute packaging from Lovemore!
The mask sheet is soak with essence…
3D masks has been int he market for quite some time already. But for those who are still unaware of their existence, it’s time to try them! So what is it actually?
the mask comes with a total of 4 hooks, 2 for each ear, to enhance the lifting effect for anti-aging purposes and to achieve the much desired V-shape face.
Put the ear hooks on your ears and feel the tightness of the mask on your facial skin.
You’ll notice the extra flap of mask sheet at your chin area…
There’s stretch out the extra flap of mask sheet and you’ll notice the hooks on both ends of the flap. Hook them on your ears too!
The chin area is pulled upwards tightly for the lifting effect! No more worries about double chin and drooping jawline!
And you can see that the mask sheet adheres really well to the skin!
My skin felt very hydrated and radiant after using it. The lifting effect was obvious! Skin felt firmer too!
you can visit Secretive.sg or any Watson outlets to purchase the mask!

Sexylook did a crossover with Sanrio and there! We have the Sexylook Hello Kitty Strawberry Perfect Hydrating Mask! How can anyone resist it! Thanks to http://www.secretive.sg/ for the sponsor!
5 pcs of masks in a box, retailing at $10.90
I was smiling as I turned to the back of the box to see Hello Kitty showing us how to use the mask!
Leave on mask for 10-15mins and remove. After that, pat and massage the remaining essence for your skin to absorb.
1) Strawberry essence helps to tighten up large and visible pores.
2) Collagen and Royal jelly essence help keep skin hydrated for soft. glowing complexion.
I love the thin mask sheet which adheres to my skin very well. Maximum contact for maximum absorption.
After using the mask, my face was glowing and hydrated. I especially love the smell of fresh of sweet strawberry! The mask sheet was soaking wet with the essence and you don’t have to worry about the mask drying out or falling off your face. I used the excess essence on my arms and legs!
Hello Kitty Strawberry Perfect Hydrating Mask is available at selected Watsons stores and on www.secretive.sg for $10.90 (box of 5 pieces).

It all started with Jez and me wishing Celeste happy birthday on her Facebook wall when I realized that I miss that crazy and funny dude and I haven’t seen him for a long time since our last trip to KL. So I whatsapp him and told him I’ll go and find him at Jbar someday! So last last Friday it was! Must wait for a day when Celeste is back in Sg to meet up together too!
Went with my sister.. Do we look alike?!

Thanks to OMY for the invite to the re-opening of GV at Jurong Point with the screening of one of my most anticipated movie this year — Marvel’s the Avengers!! I’ve been waiting for it!

Felicia and Timothy!
and this pair of very chio
Vivian and Valerie!
Aunty Lucy (played by Dennis Chew) was there to kick-off the cinema’s opening and Jon and I had to do an interview with her. He’s really nice! Didn’t managed to get a pic with him since time was pretty rushed and I didn’t want to inconvenience him.
And because of the interview, I forgot to take photos of the interior of the theaters!!
But anyway, the seats were comfy and I really love the stadium seating!! Being petite, I hate it when cinema seats are leveled (or close to…) The tall person in front will be blocking half my view and the movie-addict-me will get real upset. The overall experience at the GV Jurong Point was great! It was an indulgence in visual and audio enjoyment.
