Here's a way to de-stress, relieve and relax your tired eyes in just 10 minutes.

Our new matching colors Crocs shoes

The hubby and I decided to get ourselves a comfortable pair of shoes each. We went to Crocs. A brand with mid price range, with reviewed quality and comfort brand.

I had alot of choices and could not really decide on which pair. The hubby has an easier choice as there was not much choices and most of the styles were not what he wanted. In the end we got matching colors shoes. Thought mine is much more plain than his. I love his shoes more than mine. Haha..

With the ongoing GSS sale of 20% off minimum 2 pairs purchased, we saved quite alot. It's $131.80 for these two pairs.

His: Beach Line Boat Slip Navy/Red | UP $99.90 | Sale $79.90
Her: Crocs Retro Slingback Navy/Red | UP $64.90 | Sale $51.92

** Actually my design and color choice cost much less if buying online, but it is much cheaper for these two if buying in retail as his pair is not discounted online.

Togi Korean Restaurant

A week ago, the hubby and I were researching online individually for a place for today's lunch. And we shared this place with one another, without looking at one's screen. Cool eh? So we have to try out this place!

We forgot to place a reservation earlier on, and we tried to make one when they opened at 12 noon. We were told that they do not take reservations. A little worried that the place may be crowded with lunch crowd, but still we headed there excitedly.

Located in Chinatown, in the middle of Mosque Street, this cozy Togi Korean Restaurant serves authentic Korean cuisine, based on online raving reviews. We were feeling pretty lucky that there were still empty tables for us. The restaurant is not very crowded, but it is bustling with activities from the existing customers.

We were greeted by the staff and given the menu for ordering.

The menu: If only there were more pictures. I seldom eat Korean as I always think that Korean food is very spicy and would be too hot for me…

Curél Sebum Care

Do you know that excess sebum can aggravate skin sensitivity?

A lot of people who have both conditions – skin sensitivity and oily skin tend to place more emphasis on choosing products that help with their skin sensitivity.

This is not enough. Excess sebum generated will deteriorate as skin gets more alkaline, turning into irritants to cause flare-ups within the skin layers.

Hence it is important to choose products that effectively control skin sensitivity while reducing sebum secretion from the source.

Curél, Japan’s No. 1 brand for sensitive Asian skin, introduces a new skincare range specially formulated for sensitive and oily or combination skin types. The Curél Sebum Care range - comprising a Foaming Wash, Lotion and Moisture Gel - offers the skincare essentials to properly manage both skin sensitivity and sebum secretion.

Use the Curél Sebum Care range, after makeup removal, is in this sequence:
Foaming Wash Lotion Moisture Gel

Cooler weather, cooler wind, please?

Don't you agree that the weather recently has been very hot? Even the wind that manages to blow once in a while is hot. My home utility bills for the past few months has only been getting higher and higher. We are unable to sleep without the air conditioner as even with two fans blowing, we had been sweating profusely. I even have heat rash now, and it's very itchy that sometimes it would wake me up in the middle of the night.

We went fan shopping recently and got a really powerful fan from Best Denki. A KDK stand fan ( recommended by the sales lady. Though it is powerful, it is still not enough and I think I have a little arthritis. My ankle, wrist, shoulders hurts when they are directly in the path of the wind. Oh man... Help us...

I wonder when will the weather turn better? Just a little cooler will be better with some cooling wind.

Shopping at Carter's

I had just paid for my first US online shopping loots. And I am very happy. Tagged along girlfriend's shipment. There are so many cuties on Carter's, but had aimed only for those on sale with the 20% clearance sale on top of it. Not too sure whether these are suitable, but I had shopped happily. Don't you agree that they are so adorable? Hopefully the sweetie pie is able to fit in and likes them.

This loot's damage: US$53.13 (excluding international shipping via

Not too sure if this first US spree is going to open up to future sprees. Will have to control a little more.

No place is sweeter than home

After 15 days, finally, the air of freedom to go home has come. He is happy like a child when the doctor endorsed the discharge. We are glad too. Though without the medical care, but at least he is going to rest in a familiar and comfortable place. No place is sweeter than home. But I am quite sure he is masking the pain he is in.

Some thoughts about the stay. Visiting hours mentioned, is just a guide. We can visit the patient at anytime, as long as we don't make a ruckus and of course, don't be caught by the night patrolling security. Nurses are very extraordinary individuals. They have to help patients clean, take care of all their needs, make sure they eat their medicine on time and are very vigilant to share their care and concern when patients show any signs of discomfort.Communication of process flow is really important. It gives those waiting, a sense of assurance and give directions of what and where to go next. Food provided is really bad. One shared, food is cooked t…

Freshly Recontracted Fibre Broadband 200Mbps

Our home Fibre Broadband (100Mbps) contracted has expired some time ago, and the hubby saw this same price promotion but twice the speed package that we can recontract with. It's the same service provider.

He attempted to do the recontract online earlier on, but the online system does not allow recontracting. Even after calling the hotline, the person said the same thing. So, last night, we went down to the shop. Signed up the 200Mbps Fibre broadband package (with free 1GB Mobile Data sim card for 2 years, and topped up $80 for a Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Router for better coverage).

The new speed should be up by 12 midnight.

This was the speed on 18 June 2014 10pm (Tested via

This was the speed on 19 June 2014 10am (Tested via

Forgive my not so technical knowledge, but the numbers difference is not that big and, where are the rest of the rest of the 180Mbps? I know it is impossible to reach the full 200Mbps. But.. hmm.. to only get …

Collection Cosmetics Primed and Ready Makeup Primer

The silky formula of Collection Cosmetics Primed and Ready Makeup Primer ($16.90/18ml) provides a light coverage for a flawless complexion and a noticeably natural finish. A soothing makeup base, it minimizes pore problems, smoothes uneven skin and hides unsightly blemishes for the perfect base.

How to use: Wear alone or under foundation for a flawless complexion.

Review on Collection Cosmetics Primed and Ready Makeup Primer: The Collection Cosmetics Primed and Ready Makeup Primer is a small tube of make-up primer that it is very portable, fits easily in any makeup pouch. The packaging is a funky, cool metallic pink on black.

The primer is a transparent gel with little or no smell.

The Collection Cosmetics Primed and Ready Makeup Primer feels oily on the first touch. I thought that this primer is very oily, and would not be suitable for me. But after spreading out the primer, the oily feel disappeared. Instead, the area with the primer feels lightly powdered. I like this feeling, it is a…

Tak Po Dim Sum

We celebrated Father's Day with my FIL with Dim Sum breakfast. The hubby suggested going to Tak Po in Chinatown as being a non-porridge lover, he likes the congee there which is delicious and the dim sum was good.

We reached there about 8 plus in the morning. Luckily we were there a little earlier as there are still parking lots available at the market and Tak Po is still pretty empty. The place got pretty messy and crowded after the Hubby came back from parking. I find it messy as people came asking for tables for 5-9 pax, but only less than half arrived. The staff were instructed to only let the group get a table if all or 90% of the group has arrived and the customers were NOT happy to wait. But the staff have their instructions. Not much choice.

The pictorial 2 sided menu highlights about 70% of what they have. I'm a more visual person, so this menu is more appealing than the order chit. Looks good.

Here's the order chit...

Our orders came quite quickly. About 5 minute…
