Behind the wall of the saloon, there's a spacious nails' hut.

She's Ah San, the photo belows show her doing a pedicure for me. I chose brown + glitter, my favourite colours.

I have really brittle and frizzy hair. I'm currently using this Japan product which Mod beaute has introduced and sponsored me. On top of that, I'm on my way to the shop for more hair treatments. We'll see about my new hair condition in a few months time!

On top of that, they will also be sponsoring my hairstyle and nail art for my concert. Which means I'll be changing my hair colour and have my nails prettily done days before my actual concert! So excited! I'll definitely post up my new hair colours and nail art once it's done and do a review on that for you!

Review: Kinohimitsu D'Tox Drink & Japan Bust Up Drink

I receive this courier and was surprised by the weight of this tiny bag. It weighs not just the mass of water and their bottles, but also contains the richness of health and beauty!

Here's what the bag contains:

Kinohimitsu Detox Juice 6-Day programme
Kinohimitsu Japan BustUp Drink

About Detoxification:

Our body has a natural detoxification system. Nevertheless due to external factors like stress, environment pollution, inactive lifestyle and unbalanced diets(these are toxins), our body soon accumulates these toxins and affects our bodily functions. Overtime, this gives a rise to a variety of diseases including stroke, heart attacks and diabetes.

As I was reading the D'tox Juice packaging, I came across this:

I have them all! Do you?
Well if you do, I guess it's really time to grab a box now and try!

This juice will also benefit people who are suffering from poor digeston, stomach bloating, fatigue and sickly body. Even those with bad breath, body odor, poor complexion, blemishes, skin allegies, headache and migraine.

This drink is NOT for slimming purposes! However, the juice constantly promotes the improvement of irregular bowels while softening and unplugging mucoid plague. So what's this 'mucoid plague' and how is it harmful to the human body?

I went to find out more:
Mucoid plague is actually your old, gluey, hardened waste(your poo poo in your body). An average individual carried between 7-25 pounds of this which can contribute to innumerable health problems as mentioned above(bad breath, blemishes etc.)

So by flushing out all these toxins, many have experienced a flatter tummy and weight loss while cleansing.

Now here's easier way of detoxification; Drink and then flush.
How's that sound?

The Kinohimitsu SIX day programme is a smart way to flush out toxins from your bowel within 2-4hour withour disrupting your daily life. I've ALWAYS have an issue with constipation. Constipation is kind of like my best friend over the years(or foe).

I SUPER dread tummyaches.

When I do, I'll be rolling in bed, complaining and whining to my boyfriend and mum. For the next few hours, I won't be able to do anything except kneeling on the floor and waiting for my call. Then I'll be dashing to the washroom several times for another 1-2 hours between irregular intervals. Many times, the pain for me was so unbearable I would shout for help in the washroom and boyfriend/mom has to come running to my aid with stomach-soothing oilment. Tummyaches are one of the most horrible routines I experience all my life.

Before I began blogging this post, I had my very first bottle. It's about 2 hours now and I have already gone to the washroom twice. Surprisingly, no severe stomachache, no constipation in the toilet, no pain-suffering! Detoxificating in less than 5minutes just happened like that! Doing my big business have never been THIS RELIEVED for me!

Dummy guide: Take just ONE bottle a day, consectively for 6 days, no special diet is required to accompany the consumption. For maintainence, it is encouraged to consume 1-3 bottles of the juice each week.

There are TWO flavours to choose from: Cranberry and Plum flavour

I was given a box of PLUM juice to try.
You know, when I said plum juice, i really meant PLUM JUICE. The drink is just like any other fruit juice I drink from the carton: Sweet-tasting, fresh and enjoyable. No chemical smell, no nose-pinching actions while trying to gulp down the drink. It taste like blueberry and plum mix together.

It's so enjoyable(especially chilled), I would love to have another bottle! Of course, I have to resist and wait until tomorrow. :)

Ingredients for the Plum flavour: Dark Plum Fruit Juice, purified water, sorbitol, roselle fruit juice, blueberry concentrate, mannitol, blackberry concentrate, glace plum fruit juice, citric acid. The ingredients can be read from here.

NO wonder I said it tasted like blueberry and plum juice mix together!!!

Check out for more Kinohimitsu product details from the Kinohimitasu website here. Also, you can read more about it from the Confirm Trading Pte Ltd website here.

After the Detox, I'm going to try this out- the Bust Up drink my vain pot sisters who kept saying about! Hurray!

The company is running a limited edition year-end pack @ $39.90 for 10 bottles of Kinohimitsu Collagen/Bust Up drink. The Usual Price is $39.90 for 6 bottles of Collagen/Bust Up drink.

Kinohimitsu Drinks are available at Watsons, Guardian, SASA, Nishino Pharmacies, John Little, Robinsons, ALT, Natural/Organic Stores and Individual Pharmacies.

I have made up my mind to continue with this product!

Rojukiss Stim Cell Natural Whitening Series(Men and Women)

If you know me long enough, you'll know that I was never the kind of girl who will be bothered with cosmetics and skincare products.


Some time ago, I had blogged a post about this before:
I realize women require this 3 minimum criteria to look beautiful
(actually clean and healthy-looking):

1. Good Complexion
2. Healthy Hair
3. Straight and White teeth

My complexion has gone from baby-skin flawless to full of flaws. So did my hair, when it was already frizzy, thick and dry during my secondary school days. And my teeth, they aren't straight and white at all.

I want to be beautiful!
And that means I must be determined NOT TO BE LAZY USING SKINCARE PRODUCTS anymore.

I confess! I'm that kind of girl who never seem to know which product I am suitable to use, or what to use for my skin problem. When someone says that a particular product is good, I'll buy a big bottle back to try; to realize that product has just caused me more pimple outbreaks!
Trust me to be a girl.

The thrash bin saved up much of my room space.

But many thanks to Confirm Trading Pte Ltd,I got to really understand whether certain products are suitable for me and best of all, I get to do reviews of products first before purchasing and wasting any more money on these beauty and skincare products.

This is my changing point.

Check out my BEFORE complexion first before you even begin:

Notice the edge of my face seems to have a lot of blemishes and uneven dark tones. So is my crown area.

Ladies, let me introduce to you what I've been using recently:

The Rojukiss Stim Cell Natural Whitening Series.
Check out their 3 New Innovations of Blushing White Action of whitening,
blushing and retaining new whiter in these products:

Revives deep-dull and damage cell to accelerate new cell regeneration for whiter, brighter, steady, fading red-dark spot from acne and sun freckles

Pink Blushing White Growth
Increases every cell’s energy circulation for blushing skin effect

Mela-less Skin Blocker
Block the UV damaging signal from sun and the others to retain white skin

I was given 3 types of Rojukiss whitening product:

1.The Stim Cell Natural Serum for Light Tone
(For normal areas)

2.The Stim Cell Natural Serum for Dark Tone
(For stuborn brown spots and pigmentation difficult to solve)

Goodness of the serum:

It contains Nano White Particle:
50,000 Molecule smaller than hair, provide deep penetration and fast absorption.

Advance Packaging
This is a new technology for storage seperation “Stim
White Cell Serum” and “White Active Activator”. Press 1 time on
cover container can ensure highest efficacy for everyday use.

Dummy Guide:
Applying serum onto facial skin and around eyes both
day and night after washing face

3.Stim Cell Natural Daily UV Scatter Sunscreen with SPF 50PA+++
(Deeply protect cell and effectively protect skin, so dullness not return)

Goodness of the Sunscreen:

180 Degree UV Scatter
It doesn't only reflect out, but also 180 degree scatter out sunlight from over factors

Deep Cell Aging Protection
It deeply protect cell and effectively protect skin, so that dullness not returm.

Consistent Sunsvreen Protection
Perfect protection skin from sunlight for 12 hours!

Extra Long Anti Oxidant
Reduce damage skin from sunlight, pollution and other factors and maintain new brighter skin cells.

Water Proof
Sweat Proof and lightly cream and left of deposit cream

Dummy Guide:
Apply this sun block all over face after washing face and using cream - Shake well before use

Photo below is taken on the 3rd day I was using the product.
Notice the difference to my skin tone already?
The tone on my face is more even out by now!

I'm beginning to love this habit!
In fact, I reckon it'll be something I can't do without anymore- loving my skin and protecting it.

When I was younger, I had tried those sunblock when learning how to swim. They feel so oily and smell like coconut on me. This sunscreen, however, is non-oily at all. It is easy to apply due to its water-base solution, which in turns leaves no white residue on your face but a faint floral scent instead! On my way to outside, I can still faintly smell the sunscreen and I feel so clean and protected.

The serum is transparent and scent-free. It seeps into the pores almost immediately hence your face always feels fresh, dry and comfortable.

Hohoho, MEN out there. Of course I won't leave you out!
There's Rojukiss Stim Cell Natural Whitening for MEN!

The skin of a male is 20% thicker than a female's, takes longer to revive new cell and definitely oiler than female skin,so the products that they use must contain the special techniques for care.
Especially development for male,this range helps to fade deep dull skin red-dark spot from pimple for brighter and healthier skin. It prevents red-dark spots from acne by its stim white cell and 3 innovation for healthy white action for men.

Facts on Men's skin:

20% thicker skin on Epidermis
Hard to restoration and nourishment of skin

Tougher skin and lower rate to relieve skin cell:
More exfoliate accumulated dead skin cell

Higher rate of oily skin:
Easily Oily skin, wide pore and new acne

Hence, the Rojukiss Stim Cell Natural Whitening(men) contains:

STIM White CELL For Men

Healthy White Growth
Blend innovation from natural for increase skin cell energy and healthy skin

Royal Caribbean Cruise- Legend Of The Sea

X marks the spot.

But where's the treasure?

Welcome to The Royal Caribbean Cruise!

*Ignore my puffy eyes*

I was invited on board the Royal Caribbean-Legend Of the Seas cruise.

This baby is 70 000 tonnes which can accomodate up to 2,076 guests
She has set sail since 16 May 1995.

Is it going to be really white inside?

Will it smell like a seawater?

Does it wobble a lot from left to right like when I am sitting on a canoe?

So What is it?

I can't wait to walk through THAT entrance!

THIS entrance!!!

No seawater smell.

Not plain white like a hospital.

The place is as stardy as it is on land.

No wait. Did I just walk into a 5-star hotel?

Royally-furnished for the Royals.

The place looks so magical- *pinch me in my face*

OMG. I feel like a queen!

Up till this stage, I still couldn't believe I'm actually on board the ship! Not until our group leader made his welcome speech~ Ahoy mate!

Our first stop: The Anchor's Aweigh Lounge- where most of the onboard entertainment are organised. There's even a stage for live band performances and a dance floor!

Oh look at this! I can see Sentosa from within!

Darren, Christine and I simply hid in a corner and started camwhoring. The place is superior-furnished for great photo-taking sessions anywhere!

Legs aching after partying your night away?

No worries! There's SPA onboard for a minimal fee.

Now that you are refreshed again, you can go for a Shopping-spree(jewellery, watches, souvenirs)- tax and duty free. As quoted by our group leader,"If the products anywhere else is cheaper anywhere apart from here, you'll get a full refund"

How's that!

Imagine classical songs played on a white grand piano accompanied by the melodic tunes of the violin. As both compliment each other, you swayed into a waltz with your other half- eyes locked into each other's...

like HELLO, You're stepping on my foot. *Ops*

At their very own cafe, there's BEN & JERRY'S- my favourite!!!

Sometimes, it's not just coffee that can keep a person awake you know. :)

Pose, take a picture. Where's the cameraman?

So you realize you have none. Why not go to the Photo Gallery where there'll be photography experts to assist you. And you can bring your photographs home at reasonable rates.

There's an library on board. YES. A LIBRARY. Read all you want, bookworms! (Jianing, this is the cruise for you!)

And there is a variety of books you can choose from- not just on books about cruises and ships.

Check out this next room- The Card Room. Not only that, it's for casual Mahjong fully equipped with mahjong and card tables!

The moment we're all waiting for: Pictures of the rooms and suites.

And I promise you they just getting bigger and more majestic, one after another!

Heart-thumping, aren't you?

See. It is comfy! You've just seen a cabin with windows- Here is one without.

The design is pretty much the similar except that the window is now replaced by a mirror.
Room service is available!

The bed is really thick and bouncy, guarantee a good night's sleep-tested and proven!

(I'm so sorry that the bed has to be made again.)
As I've mentioned, the rooms gets bigger- One of the cabins with a balcony.

And bigger- The family suite.

There are two rooms, two bathrooms(one with a bathtub), a living room with balcony!

The owner suites are just as extravagant! And like I say, it gets bigger and bigger wouldn't you just love to change a suite every day! Here are the owner suites.

Some have a tiny bar counter for you to indulge in your favourite wine. And then there's one with a living room and two TVs, bathtubs are a must-have!

This is the BEST- the Royal Suite.

Step right in and you will find yourself face to face with a grand white piano in the middle of the room. The room comes complete with a walk-in closet and a full length balcony as well! Not to forget the living room is big enough to accomodate all of us-about 18 bloggers in total!

Note: I need to take 16 photographs in order to show you every part of the royal suite.

That's how big it is!!!

Windjammer is on the 10th deck, where an almost-360 degrees buffet spree is spread out for you! From western to asian, fruit feast, desserts to pastries. Take your pick, eat your fill!

Your children can be safely placed at the children room with friendly teachers around to guide through colouring books, toys and even cartoons. Look at the spacious playground allocated for your little angels!

For teens, welcome to Optix, the teens' room.

Magazines, play some board games, go for a jamming session where there's a stage and a mini recording studio where you can play some music.
Or, you can just sit around with your BFFS and gossip, and gossip, and gossip!

The outdoor deck is ALWAYS my favourite deck to be in. I can spend EVERYDAY there- rain or shine. i went 'WOHOOOOOO!' the moment I stepped out.

If you're someone who loves the sun, the sea and sceneric views like me, be awed by their 4 whirlpools, Indoor/outdoor pool in a Solarium with a sliding roof, sunchairs enough for everyone!

I'm going to figure out how to play this the next time I'm going on Royal Caribbean!

Did I mention about their 9 hole minature golf course?

who says you can't do rock-climbing on water? Now you can when you go onboard the Legend of The Seas.

Be hydrated at all times wth ice-creams, frozen yogurts and ice-cool refreshments!

Think of something romantic? Try dining at Romeo and Juliet's Dining Room .

I indulged myself with a 3-course meal on board.

The food tasted even better with TWO Darrens sitting beside me!

I'm a lucky girl- no queen- in this case.

What are you waiting for?!

Let Royal Caribbean-The Legends Of The Seas, do the cruising while you travel around the world; Life. Take a break and seriously, enjoy some urban-escape for awhile. :)

===Thank You for the invitation!===


Royal Caribbean International.
