K.Star Singapore review


K.Star (Sing like a star) is new landmarks on Orchard Road, the first theme KTV. K.STAR is an attractive and unique KTV which allows you to unleashed your inner singer vibes here. K.Star is located in the golden section of Orchard Road, allowing you to add a new place to have fun and entertained at the same time. 


Yesterday I'm honored to be invited to explore K.Star by Jesq.

Opened by a beautiful lady boss who used to studied in Singapore and returned to China and start her own business. That was when she thought of that when she was studying in Singapore that there isn't any theme KTV in Singapore.

The beautifully theme room will also encourage those who are always shy and reserved to relax and sing without fear as everyone who step into K.Star will feel like a star! I'm not joking! HAHA. Usually when I go KTV with my friends, I usually don't dare to sing or I will sing with analog turned on. But when I was in K.Star, I just sing my lung out even when there was unfamiliar faces around. I guess the main reason was there's this amazing standing mic which acts like a filter for voice! It turn my duck voice in a star like voice LOL!
But of course I'm not a professional singer still! 
This is the mic which I talk about! HAHA I'm pretending that I'm a great singer which received bouquet of flowers :p
Flower don't belong to me though haha. I just love this beautiful bouquet which I saw displaying on the table. Must be the Lady boss flower from her fiancee. She's nice enough to borrow it to me for photo taking.
There's a total of 25 Beautiful theme room which can fit minimum 6 pax in their mini room to their VIP room which can fit up to 35 pax.

Can you spot the "Line theme" room?
Flamingo theme. I love the PINK!πŸ’–
This room is elongated which has a pool table fitted too!
Space theme
This is our room. The VIP room which is really huge and spacious! There's even 2 darts machined fitted and 1 large projector screen and 1 normal TV.
All the fingers food / Snacks that will come together with this VIP room.

Every room will come with this game wheel. It's for those who would like to play drinking games.

The sensor controller is intact on the wall to control lightings, volume etc.
One thing which I think others might find it troublesome is that they does not have wireless remote to control and choose the songs which you would like to sing or control volume / lighting etc. We have to go to the screen located at the front of the room. But it isn't an issue to me as I don't think I will even sit down and sing seeing that the room is so huge. I just kept walking around and standing at my fav mic area to use that to sing like a star! πŸ˜‰


Below are the different package which they offer for the type of rooms they have.
Interesting thing is that they have many kinds of Whiskey tact to package. Great for Whiskey lovers like me. Now I'm tempted to hold my birthday celebration here. LOL 

The prices are quite competitive as the mini rooms can fit up to 6 pax and you can jio your friends to sing for a good 3hrs and divide the cost.

Oh they also offer beer if you don't fancy whiskey.

Now just look at the open concept bar! The different kinds of liquor they offer are really impressive rightπŸ‘πŸ‘
There's many pretty decoration around K.star which many can't resist taking beautiful pictures and OOTD here!
Here's one with the cutie Coney and Brown from Line 😍 Wish I can bring them back!

Althea Korea Bare Essential


Woo hoo!! March is ending soon and I’m looking forward to April!
Before March end, here’s my last review for the month. I got a secret box from Althea Korea.
I’m sure many of you have heard of Althea. If you haven’t, here’s a little info about them!

Althea is Korea's premier online beauty shopping destination that provides the latest beauty products, trends, and lifestyle to consumers in Southeast Asia. Althea was founded in 2015 by Frank Kang, a serial entrepreneur and takes its name from Korea’s national flower. According to Mr. Kang his “a-ha!” moment came when friends in Southeast Asia would repeatedly ask him to buy certain Korean cosmetics for them while he was visiting Korea. Althea first launched in Malaysia in July 2015, quickly followed by Singapore in September 2015. The Philippines became the 3rd official Southeast Asian country to join the Korean Beauty movement with the launch of Althea on Philippine shores in 2016. To date, Althea has expanded to over 200 countries worldwide.

I'm as curious as you on what did Althea send me! I love the beautiful box which is my favorite color baby PINK!! 
After opening the box I'm greeted with a few products properly wrap with bubble wrap. Althea really takes the effort to pack their items ensuring it at tip to condition when it reaches it customers.

These are the items which I received from Althea. The Bare Essential range!



The latest release from the Althea label is one that addresses a common problem faced by millions of Althea's fans. “They don't know what the specific steps and procedures are to complete the Korean skincare routine. Many are fazed by the number of steps but when in reality, it shouldn't be a difficult process at all," Hyeyoung Park, Head of Brand, shares. Enter Althea’s Bare Essentials - your skin’s simply perfect saviour. Althea strips down to the Bare Essentials with this new skincare line. Riding on today’s current minimalism movement, Althea’s Bare Essentials focuses on skincare fundamentals and drops all the non-essentials. These thoughtfully crafted products give the benefits of the infamous 10-step Korean skincare routine, rolled into 3 quick and easy steps.

"We wanted to go back to the basics and really strip it all down to give the customers the most fundamental steps. From billions of data we've collected over 3 years, the most prominent fact is that a solid routine starts from 3 essential steps - cleansing, toning, and moisturizing. All the other additional steps added to your routine are just that – additional.” These new beauty hybrid products pack a double punch too; they’re products that nourish the skin while leaving it looking bright, glowing, and beautiful. With clean, minimal, yet effective formulas, these straightforward products epitomize simple perfection and deliver maximum results with minimum effort. “We also believe that when one has great skin, it decreases the amount of makeup needed to create a perfect complexion, hence the phrase 'your skin completes makeup'," Hyeyoung adds.

The Contour Cleanser 150g selling at S$8.00 packed with soothing Ice Plant and detoxifying Lemon Myrtle extracts, this cleanser is densely filled with micro capsules that burst upon contact with water to gently cleanse, exfoliate, and detoxify skin. The Contour Cleanser helps to promote blood circulation, and reduces bloating and swelling for a defined, enviably slim face shape.
I love the tangy flowery smell and also the cooling effect whenever I'm washing my face.
The texture are thick
Just a little will formed it up.
Just few days of used, I can really see that my face are less bloated which is one of the plus point!



The Primer Water 200ml Php selling at S$14.00 Both a hydrating toner and a primer in one, the Primer Water contains patented dewdrop technology (Macro Fluidic Dispersion technology) that gently fills the gaps between pores and allows hydration to penetrate deep within the layers of the skin. 

Made with Snow Lotus extracts, this skincare heavy hitter has an incredibly smooth and silky texture that enhances the skin’s natural glow, leaving you with the perfect canvas.




The Fixer Cream 50g selling at S$17.00. 
This non-oily, quick-absorbing formula harnesses the power of Trehalose, an ingredient found in the cactus plant that prevents its moisture loss, to provide the skin with 24-hour hydration. This ultra-nourishing wonder cream is also rich in antioxidants derived from Camellia Sinensis (green tea) seed oil and helps to promote collagen regeneration using Baobab Tree extracts. 


Upon application, my skin is left looking great and feeling bouncy to the touch.





With all 3 products are available for purchase at S$39, and made with only the best ingredients, it’s no surprise that the Bare Essentials line caused quite the craze in the beauty world. 

Upon its announcement, there was a 10,000-person wait list for the products! But fret not - you can now get your hands on these highly coveted products; you’re just a click away from glowing, flawless, crystal clear skin. Plus, Althea is giving out an additional 10% off with a free special edition mirror if you purchase now so head on over to www.althea.kr today!

Sonaki Vitamin C Shower Head Review



Have you ever had the thought of having a long warm shower without drying your skins and hair?
Well because I’m always showering with hot water, I realized that after each shower, my skin and hair will be extremely dry that makes me feel so frustrated. I found out the causes is due to the water supply in Singapore. Why? That’s because Singapore’s tap water had more chlorine than other countries and our skin absorbs almost 8 glasses of chlorinated water with every shower. Singapore’s tap water contains an average of 2.45 mg/l of chlorine. Our swimming pools have almost the same amount*. (*Swimming pools can contain up to 3mg/l based on NEA guidelines and PUB reports.)
Chlorine has a drying effect on hair & skin and may also damage chemical/color-treated hair. It also aggravates conditions like eczema and it could also be harmful for a baby’s soft and tender skin.


I’m so glad that Sonaki is finally here for the rescue! Sonaki Vitamin C filter. As the name suggests, it is a shower head with a Vitamin C filter that filters out chlorine in the tap water. This showerhead is designed and Made in Korea. I heard that it is also a bestseller in Korea and an amazon.com bestseller in the US. With this inline add on vitamin c filter you can remove up to 99.9% of Chlorine and Chloramines from your shower water. Filtering your shower water promotes better skin and hair due to reduced exposure to chlorine. Vitamin C has been widely used in commercial applications for neutralizing chlorine and chloramines in tap water and has been recognized as playing an important role in the appearance of firm and youthful-looking skin.


The Low Flow Vitamin C Shower Head gives up to 50% Water Savings, no loss in water pressure, environmentally safe and works effectively on any temperature water. Conserve your water with on/off switch control allowing you to turn water off on the showerhead without adjusting your water temperature or shutting off the water.  It comes with 2 Spray patterns (regular and massage).





There will be 2 Vitamin C shower filters included which will last for up to 5000 litres water use each. Showerhead can be install in 3 easy steps. All hardware for installation is included.


My little one love using the Sonaki's Vitamin C shower head too πŸ˜€

BeauDefine Guasha Facial Review

Hey peeps! How are you doing? Year of the dog is around the corner have you start peaking up and getting ready to welcome the new year? I definitely did get myself ready by getting my nails done and getting a new set of eyelashes, to recently having a relaxing yet effective firming facial from BeauDefine after getting an invitation to try out their service by Jesq from Jesq Blog

Who is BeauDefine?


BeauDefine has been around for about 4 years in the vicinity within Serangoon Central run by a beautiful young lady boss by the name of Kristin. Kristin frequently undergo hours and hours of rigorous trainings and refreshers to ensure that she know the latest industry technology and trends so that her customers can entrust their face to her.
So what treatment did I try out with BeauDefine? Well I did Kristin signature treatment, the GuaSha Facial.

What is Guasha Facial?
‘Gua’ means to scrape or rub, whilst ‘Sha’ describes the redness that results. Some of the benefits of this treatment include:
  • Promoting lymphatic drainage to reduce toxins
  • Relaxing facial muscles and clears congestion
  • Supporting collagen and elastin production, regenerating cells and relieving areas of tension
  •  Alleviating stress-related symptoms and fatigue

The salon is conveniently located around Serangoon central. A small cosy salon that has 2 bed which you can bring your partner, friend or family along.





BeauDefine’s Guasha Facial Treatment gives you the detoxifying goodness that your skin needs, especially so in Singapore’s hot and humid weather. 

After one treatment, I achieved brighter, firmer and clearer complexion. I have always tried Guasha massage, but this is my first time trying this traditional treatment on my face. 
Face cleansing. The product she uses doesn't stink my eyes!

The therapeutic face massage which makes my blood circulation better. 

And then.... The signature guasha started!

Lastly, masking time :)


Look at my define jaw line after just one treatment!


Apart from Guasha Facial, they also offer a variety of treatment refer to http://beaudefine.sg/services/ for more info. I’m definitely going back for more even though I don’t stay around the area! 




Right after our facial without any makeup!
