Certification in Basic Dog Grooming

Mid this year, I enrolled in a Basic Pet Groomer course and paid ZERO dollars for it. I had been considering a few dogs-related short courses to take during my break from work, and as a self-proclaimed typical, kiasu money-savvy Singaporean, I just had to utilize my skillsfuture credit!

SkillsFuture Credit aims to encourage individuals to take ownership of their skills development and lifelong learning. All Singaporeans aged 25 and above will receive an opening credit of S$500 from January 2016. Your credit will not expire and the government will provide periodic top-ups, so you may accumulate your credit.

Wax XXX Professional Home Kit Review

During my years of beauty work, I had waxed plenty of arms, legs and some privates (the only body area I hated waxing for many reasons). I once had a brazilian waxing done at a parlour that left me cringing at the thought of attempting it again because of their uncommon method of prepping. Instead of “greasing” the area (which can minimise some pain) after cleaning it, they powdered it instead. The moment the hot wax was pulled off, my knee out of reflex hit the light lamp that was at the side of the bed and the wall. I can’t remember if I went home with any skin left on my intimates. Other than the therapist’s skills, the wax product plays a big part in delivering a less painful experience for the consumer! Needless to say, I stayed off brazilian waxing.

Recently, I was invited to Wax XXX new professional home waxing kit launch and I was elated to be one of the first few to try out! Continue reading →

Post-Lasik Thoughts

It has been almost 7 months since my EpiLasik at Eagle Eye Centre (EEC). It took me really long to write this post because of a series of events and some mixed feelings. I am still very glad that I am free from glasses-wearing (for now) and I guess it’s time for me to pen down some thoughts and updates.

When I wrote about “How Myopia Affected My Life“, I was more or less resigned to the fate that I will never be able to do any water sports nor look good WITHOUT my thick glasses at all times. Then shortly after, I was being assessed by EEC and given the go-ahead for the lasik and cornea-strengthening procedures. I had both procedures done in the same day in April this year. It took less than 15 mins and I was out of the operating theatre. Regular reviews were done to ensure fast and successful recovery. I visited the clinic at Mount Elizabeth Novena countless of times on top of the times I was supposed to because I am paranoid like that.

Road Trip to Pontian

What happens if there is no time to plan for a proper holiday? You pack your backpacks, write up a grocery list, get in the car and go on a road trip to Johore Bahru while catching up on life with a few friends. Thanks to the bff and her efficient PA skills, she planned the 2-nights itinerary and even booked us our hotel rooms. Off we go then!
