Timbre @ Gillman


Here's another place to recommend to you guys, which I really like it too. But becos it's my first time there, and I wasn't the driver, so I don't know the exact location of this place. Somewhere near Alexandra, I think? (Please go google!)


Started drinking (only white) wine lately, not becos I wanna act atas but becos beer gives me headache! =( But this wine, tsk, I don't really like it. My favorite is still "Mosquito" lah, cos it's sweet! 


Truffle fries!


Chicken wings!


What I like about this place is that they have a liveband and we're allowed to do SMS dedications. I requested for two songs, but they only sang one! =( Maybe they don't know how to sing "When I was your man" by Bruno Mars!!!



So niceeee!!! (I get very emo when I listen to this song!)


What kind of dedication is this ah? Must state lidat then they sing lor!


This is Raeann's favorite song! (She intro-ed it to me!)


And they finally sang this song for me, lol.

A little busier recently, with events, adverts and reviews. (It's good, then I don't have time to think too much, lol.) Went to places I've never been to before (yes, in SG), and met more people. Mum and aunt have been a great help with the kids, thank you so much! =D

甘拜下风

 

This naughty girl, I really ish buay tahan her. Like what I posted on my FB yesterday, I honestly think that she comes to my life to 讨债!!! 

And yet, nobody can get angry with her for long!!! She has her own ways (make monkey faces, talk and do silly things) to make people laugh. She's so funny, I can't even. 

But her temper and character is so much like me, I'm like seeing myself in her. Lol! Especially her 吃软不吃硬 attitude, woohoo, exactly like me! But 我输了, cos I need to give way and pacify her in order to calm her down. And she's probably the one and only person I'll give way to, when it's not my fault. *raise white flag*
 

My face when people tell me that girls are easier to handle... Well, confirm not mine!!! Especially Meimei, she's a BIG challenge in my life!

Happy moments!


Zen's gf; 晶晶, she has the same name as my SIL. She just came back to SG last week and she asked to gather. (I also want to pass her her birthday gift!) So we planned a meet up yesterday, but quite a few last minute didn't make it. 

Anyway, we NEVER ask "whose going" etc de, those who can make it then go lor. Becos even when it's only 3-4 of us, we will still have plenty of fun and laughter. 


I've to FORCE stupid Kok to take photos with me, he's superstar, bo bian. He said he watched me grow up and I watched him grow old. It's true!!! Damn, he still look the same lor! (12 long years already!) 

The first question I asked him when he reached was, "are you drunk yet? Cos when you drunk, you will become very loh soh." Lolol 

Eh no, I didn't apply any lipstick, my lips naturally become red after drinking. 


Kok looks so engrossed, and Zen looks damn stress!!! Omg, this photo is super funny. LOLOL

Last night was some "killing chicken" competition, hahahah! We dedicated a lot of high pitch and unfamiliar songs, and screamed our lungs out. All very familiar liao, so it doesn't matter lah!

Then hor, a guy came to ask for my number, "do you mind giving me your number?" I replied, "I MIND". Then he seemed to be pissed off, lol. I don't anyhow give my number to anyone, nor anyhow add people on FB, so don't even try. I may look stupid, but I'm not 随便. 


And AHEM, I've an announcement to make! This guy, his name is Justin (the one who bought me a cake for my birthday despite being very sick, thank you), 31 years old, HE IS SINGLE AND AVAILABLE, anyone interested??? 

He's tall (1.8?), slender, very nice, and mad funny. Holds a stable job & income and is very hardworking. He's looking for a gf, I promised to intro nice girls to him. Everytime I posted his photo, it will be very 轰动, many people will comment that he's handsome etc. Haha! HE IS LAH! More handsome now, as compared to the past. 


Love going out with this clique of old friends, becos they really take care of me like their little sister. If I drive, they won't allow me to drink too much and made me "ta" lime juice or plain water at the end. I was very sober last night! 

(I treated all my friends the same, regardless of genders, no special treatment or whatsoever. If you're nice to me, then I'll be nice to you too!) 

I know there will be people out there thinking, why as a mother of two already, still go out to drink & play? 

Is there a law that a mom can't do that? Not as if I go out everyday what. I love to sing, that's why I go KTV pub, but I don't club anymore. Didn't step into a club for a long time liao.

Everyone has their own way to de-stress, you cannot stop someone from singing, just becos you dislike to sing?

And to me, it doesn't matter where you go or what you do, not at home means not at home what! What's the difference between going KTV pub till 2am and going billiard till 2am? #justanexample

Most importantly, no matter what you do, you need to put your family as your top priority. If you want to go out till late, make sure you can wake up early to attend to your kids. And not dump them to others becos you're tired from your late night. 

I dare to say this loud, becos I don't do that. And I'll always think for them first before doing anything/going out.

In my opinion, as long as you do your job, play your role, it's okay to take some time off once in awhile and do something you like.

A beauty blogger...


Stocked up some necessities from Watsons yesterday. Nope, there wasn't any sales going on, but I saved $20 in total! (Actually, I could have save more, but haiz, it's okay!) It's a promotion for HSBC credit card and Caltex. The lady is very nice to help me spilt into 5 bills!!!

Anyway, Watsons are having offer for some of the products, so it's quite worth already. Not sure if it's available in all the Watsons island wide or only the one I went though. (I went to the one at Railway mall btw!) 


Like this one, $7.95 each, usual price is $13.90 each. 

I bought 2-3 new products to try too, becos it's too tempting. Maybe this is the reason why I can be a beauty blogger. Haa! All cheap cheap lah, less than $16 each!!!


I was searching for toner and I saw the words "fights spots, fades marks", that's why I choose this. I got a few dark spots on my face recently! No idea why, they just refused to go away lor!!! I honestly hope that this won't cause me any breakouts or side effects! *keeping my fingers crossed*


Becos sunblock is very very important. If you haven start applying sunblock daily, you better start now. I've tried various brands of sunblock and they worked fine. Therefore I assume, brand is not that important? Most importantly, you must like it. 


And this, omg, the most impressive product I bought this time round. I've never doubt Himalaya before, that's why I put this into the basket without a second thought. (If I didn't remember wrongly, this costs $11.30!) 

Apply it on your (clean) whole face and neck, peel it off after 10-15 mins when it dries up (you can feel the tightness). It literally smells like cucumber, and it's very sticky. 

Face feels really smooth after peeling but the peeling process is kinda painful. Do remember to bun/clip your hair neatly and don't apply too near to hairline. Otherwise, you will pull out your hair too, like this...


Hahaha! So gross! As for those areas that are difficult to peel off, what I do is, I took a cotton pad, dap with water and clean off gently. 

I'm not one who will spend a large amount on skincare products, becos my face is kinda sensitive and many products doesn't suit me. 

Even though it's quite tempting when I heard people raving about it. But I'll still think again and again and again before buying. 

Mr Berlin Singapore

Sponsored

Date: 15th October 2014, Wednesday
Location: 1 Shenton Way, #01-09, Singapore 068803

I'm one German fans (due to WC, haha, other than that, I must confess, I don't know much about them, oops!) and I mad love sausages! And thus, I was really excited when I received the invite from Carlene, to a media tasting session at Mr Berlin, to celebrate their grand opening!

So, what's Mr Berlin? 


It's a German restaurant/bistro/cafe (I honestly have no idea what you call that?) located at One Shenton (1 Shenton Way, #01-09, Singapore 068803) that serves the most famous and iconic street food of Berlin - German currywrust!!!


I extracted these from their website, don't need to thank me, you're welcome! According to Josephine, currywurst is very very popular in Germany, you can find it at every corner of every street there. Glad that I learnt something new again, even though I've not been there before. But it's one of my dream country to explore. 


This is Josephine; the Sales & Marketing manager of Mr Berlin. She's a German. Does all German ladies look like a model? Tall, slim, slender and pretty. (I secretly think that she looks like Mario Gotez's model gf, lol!) And she's crazily nice and friendly. (Nice to meet you Josephine, if you happened to read this!)


Sausages go well with wine or beer, have you tried it before? If you're working around there, you can pop by for your quick breakfast or lunch fix, or ask a few colleagues for a short chilling session after work.


Their prices are very competitive. A glass of red/white wine at only $9.50, in CBD area, which is inexpensive, in my opinion. 

They had this Grand Opening promotion (which I posted on both my FB and page) on that day, currywurst are sold at 10 cent from 12-2pm and beer at $1 from 6-8pm. And wow, the crowds were overwhelming.


And guys out there, you're in for a good deal on every Wednesday. Instead of the common Ladies Night everywhere, they have Guys Night Out whereby you get a free beer with any currywurst dish.

You may like to check out their FB page for any further promotions.

Now now, I'm gonna post photos of some of their yummylicious dishes. But my apology, the photos I took don't do any justice to it, becos of my lousy camera, and maybe, my lousy skill.




These are the very famous original German currywurst. The key of this dish is the sauce, which is freshly made daily. You may choose the amount of spiciness for your sauce (refer to the photo below).  

Every Mr Berlin Currywurst has a taste so unique cos they crafted it with so much care using their own German recipe! Mr Berlin’s curry sauce is also homemade from a recipe by an original "Berliner".


I personally prefer "Break the Wall" becos I'm too used to taking very spicy food. To me, it's still okay, not so spicy. But to those who can't take any spiciness at all, you will find it spicy. LOL


This is also very good, cheese sausage! 


Top up your sausages with a side, you can choose...


Their classic fries "red/white"


OR, their freshly baked daily Organic bread roll. This is addictive!!! It goes very well with the sauce. Yum yum! I suddenly miss it now. How now brown cow?!


You should also try their Curry fries "special". 




Mr Berlin mascot! He deliberately come out to take photos with me, so I must post!!! Thank you so much for the invite, I enjoyed myself very much! ^.^

*Post a photo of yourself with Mr Berlin or a photo of yourself enjoying their currywurst and hashtag #MrBerlinSG and stand to win all-expense paid party for you and 5 friends at Mr Berlin.

Black Box SUPER 10

Advertorial

Say hello to SUPER 10, with all the boxes priced at $10!


We just received some inside news to what Black Box is up to recently. Apparently, they really have something up their sleeves. Some of you might have already noticed the little changes done to the bi-monthly boxes, so let’s wait and see. I smell something here and I can’t wait to find out what it is!

To something that’s more exciting for all of us today – Say hello to SUPER 10

The Black Box team just put together LIMITED EDITION boxes for the month of October, and what’s unique about these boxes are that they have a different superhero character that represents the personality of each box (I, for one could relate to one of the boxes). So which tickles your fancy?

Let’s take a look at my SUPER 10 box, I got Beauty Beast!



Beauty Beast: "Believe in your instincts and who you really are. To those who said that I can't do it, well, watch me."


A full-sized (75ml) Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Scrub! Blended with goodness of Neem and Apricot, this scrub removes impurities and dead skin cells. It also removes excess oil from the skin's surface, which is the root cause of acne. It's scent is very similar to their oh-so-popular Nourishing Skin Cream, which I've done an advert for them earlier this year.


As explained from the name Beauty Beast, there are something for the male too. L'Oreal Paris Men Expertise Charcoal Black Scrub & Men Expert Hydra Energetic X-Treme (Moisturizer). No idea what should I do with these, as I can't use it. Any male reader want this? =D


Hada Labo SHA Hydrating Face Wash & SHA Hydrating Lotion are the first skincare products I did a review for, also the first I started using on my face after 20+ years, when they first launched in Singapore. Needless to say, they are highly raved by many now. Doink doink! 


KLARITY Lasertox CC Miracle White Lotion



I'm very impressed by the result, non sticky nor oily, and it gives instant glow. This lotion comes with a sunscreen factor of SPF30 PA++ and it's paraben free!!! It smells great too! If you're searching for a good CC cream/lotion, you can give this a try! =) 

Looking at all the goodies inside my SUPER 10 Beauty Beast box, I'm interested to get all the boxes now. I love those mini sized products because they're super useful for travelling or staycation. SUPER 10 is really worth it, considering the fact that the products in this box are worth $20.

SUPER 10 Beauty Beast box, together with 2 other variants, Sapphire Wonder and Iron Amber, are available at Black Box Qoo10 store or E-Store at $10 each.

Because it’s SUPER 10, and like the name suggests, these boxes are priced at $10 each. Can’t decide on which to buy? Why not get all 3, at a special price of $25!
