Nivea Intense Moisture Serum

I sometimes wish that i have more sedentary hobbies, 
so that my skin wouldn't be exposed to the harmful UV rays..
I also wish i had cared a little more about body skincare
rather than just concentrating on facial care. 

After weighing my options, 
i've figured that life is too short to be spent on worrying!
Do what makes you happy and worry later!  

I love spending time at the sea, away from the hustle and bustle of life. 
It makes me feel calm :)

Koh Lipe Beach :) 
As much as i love to spend time under the sun, i know that it is definitely harmful in the long run :(
Applying sunscreens was my own defense against the harsh conditions...


Fortunately or unfortunately, 
my job requires me to look good! 
I've been told that i don't glow on screen or on stage due to the my dull body skin tone from all that harmful UV exposure. 
From then, i've tried different body moisturizers and post-sun emergency body skincare 
in hopes to salvage whatever is left of my youth haha

I have to confess that I've always been lazy and I also detest 
the sticky/greasy feeling that remains on my skin after applying body moisturizer. 
The Aftermath? 
Legs with visible cracked surface!!! 

Nivea Body Intensive Moisture Serum SPF 25 was heaven sent in my mailbox!!

What's so awesome about the Nivea Body Intensive Moisture Serum?

It's a body SERUM, not lotion/cream. 
Extra light and non-sticky, it was absorbed into the sahara of my skin within a minute. 
I can now hop into my clothes immediately after application without worrying that it will stick onto them! Whee!! 

SPFPA+++ Sun Protection
You might be wondering what it means.. 

SPF25 (Sun Protection Factor 25) means that it is 25x more effective on guarding the skin against skin redness from harmful UBA and UVB rays as compared to when nothing is applied on skin. 
These harmful rays contribute towards skin cancer.

Something I've learnt while on set with LadyFirst is that higher SPF doesn't mean stronger or more protection. It just means longer protection. 
In fact, dermatologists recommend the usage of SPF15 or 30 sunscreen, so this moisture serum is the ideal product!! 

PA+++ simply implies strong protection efficacies!

Repairs dry and damaged skin
It contains 100X Concentrate Vitamin E & Grape Seed Oil which penetrates deep into the skin to restore skin cells!
Apart from cracked skin, it is also ideal for flaky, itchy or rough skin types! 

Moisture lost Protection
Not only does it repair, it prevents and protects. 

... And it's true! 

My skin had a visible improvement with just one usage!
I was pretty mind-blown by its effectiveness within just a period of 24 hours.
I can't wait to see the results after extended usage! 

I can finally do whatever i want, 
such as diving and swimming and staying out in the sun, 
because at the end of the day Nivea Body Intensive Moisture Serum is here to stay hahaha

Leaves me in a good mood after applying it, 
especially before heading out!!

Your skin is in for a good treat :)

super/hyper markets including Watsons, Guardian, Cold Storage,

Youth Time 2014!

I am incredibly honoured to have met Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong at the recent Youth Time 2014. 
This event was held in my beloved alumni, Anderson Junior College, 
the place where my love of music first blossomed. 

Youth Time is an annual event organized by the Yio Chu Kang Grassroots Organization, 
with the aim to bring the youths together for a fun-filled day of activities through carnivals and live band performances.
The event was also particularly meaningful because of the lively and interaction dialogue session with PM Lee! 
The by-invite-only session was a very cosy affair, 
with an auditorium of about a hundred youth from different backgrounds; students, young working adults, young grassroot leaders and young parents. 

I was so overwhelmed by the entire experience because not only did i perform, 
i was also awarded the Breakthrough in Arts Awards with some other outstanding youths, 
and given a chance to share my experience during the dialogue. 
So deeply humbled by the rare opportunity to connect with youths who have dreams!!

Achievement Unlocked!
Possibly my most epic selfie to date..

The NEA Eco Music Challenge is Back!

As a singer,
i'm particularly sensitive to my emotions,
to thoughts that arise in my head in my everyday life.

Perhaps it is an occupational hazard?
I really do need to switch between different emotions whenever i perform.
I could be singing a super high energy positive number at one time,
and the next moment to do teary breakup song with full out emotions.
It is a roller-coaster ride i'm not kidding.

But i see this ability as a superpower that few possess.
It is our outlet to expression, a blessing in disguise.
We are able to convey our thoughts, spread positive messages.
We are able to turn our seemingly insignificant emotions into something bigger than ourselves,
and make an impact.
Music can create impact around us, and influence people to feel strongly for a cause.

Something that i really appreciate about Singapore is the beautiful flora and fauna and cleanliness in our surroundings.
With the thought in mind, the environment is an inspiration and topic that more musicians can write about, to raise awareness and make an impact on.
I'm hence happy to announce that the NEA Eco Music Challenge is back!
Now there is a way for singer-songwriters to help raise awareness of environmental issues,
through our songs!!

Wanderlust in Seoul, Korea! [Part II - Sights & Sounds]

Seoul - Everland | DMZ Tour | Street Shopping | 

We set out in the early morning at 8am for the hour ride shuttle to Everland.. 
Grabbed a roll of sushi for breakfast! 

Finally, an hour later we emerged at Everland!
Selfie-stick in hand, we began camwhoring.. 


We had absolutely no idea who those creatures were.
And we found them absolutely horrendous... but we took a picture with them anyway
cos that's what you're supposed to do at Theme Parks.

Wanderlust in Seoul, Korea! [Part 1: SEOUL DELICIOUS]

When in Korea... EAT!
I'm seriously not much of a foodie so pls don't trust my judgement.
These are also not my recommendations,
most of them were chanced upon while walking along the streets.. we didn't plan much!
But everything tasted (pardon my pun) SEOUL delicious to me!

The mains are like stars of the show.
Over-ordering is the norm, especially when 4 hungry girls are involved.

Weekend Roadtrip to Melaka!

Spontaenous roadtrip FTW!! 
It was my first roadtrip in Malaysia that is further away from JB 
and the jam was so bad it took us 6 hours to get to Melaka -_-

Roadtrip Snacks for the looong drive..
I almost forgot about Mamee Monster and the packet of seasoning powder!! 
So unhealthy it brings back nostalgic childhood memories hehe
I forgot what it's like not to care about what i eat.. Those were the days!

We pretty much got to Melaka at night and headed for Jonker Walk!
Tastefully tattered and torn LW Nyona Pineapple Tarts Sign :)
