Labour Day Getaway - Singapore

I know it would be too late to write about my road trip to Singapore during Labour Day holiday, therefore I'm going to keep it short and sweet. Apart from doing the routines (eat, shop and sleep), we watched Beauty and the Beast and managed to spend some time with my brother. It is always nice to catch up with family, especially we don't get to stay together for years.

Speaking of travel, of course it revolves around food. 
#1 Sinpopo BRAND 
We had Har Jeong Kai (fried chicken) burger, nasi lemak and rojak for sharing. Nothing very impressive while I love getting nostalgic about the vintage 80's interior, I wish the attention details stretched to the food. 

#2 Penny University
This hidden gem in East Coast is serving one of the best coffee and cakes in Singapore. I have yet to try their pastries and I wouldn't mind to come back for the next round. My brother said I almost check listed all the best coffee places in Singapore. I mean that's a good thing right? How I wish I can one day try all the good coffee all around the world and of course eat all the desserts :D

#3 Osteria Mozza 
Quote from boyfriend, 'never doubt a fat chef - Mario Batali'. This restaurant serves one of the best Italian cuisine. We had cappellacci with bluefoot mushroom and grilled wagyu beef. I was not a pasta person until I was convinced by Osteria Mozza. Every taste of their stuffed pasta was sweet, creamy and flowy. Grilled wagyu in the meantime, was great. I will always choose steak over pasta, however not this time. I will highly recommend you guys to try their pasta! Not a dinner is completed without dessert. We ordered vanilla panna cotta with mixed berry and almonds. Every bites was so flavourful, I almost teared up :p
We took a stroll walking along Marina Bay Sands and enjoyed sunset in this beautiful city. 

#4 Hai Di Lao
This Sichuan hot pot chain keeps me in the awe of their service level. While waiting for our table, you can served with snacks and drinks, you can even go for a manicure service. How awesome is that! With wide selections of fresh ingredients and sauce, this Sichuan hot pot deserves a second visit. 

#5 The Horse's Mouth
Hidden speakeasy bar. Hidden behind a door from Uma Uma Ramen, you will eventually find yourself in this Japanese minimalist designed bar. Have fun finding this bar :D

The regular routine I would do when I am travelling is to have instant cup noodles before I go to bed. The greatest thing is you found someone that shares this regular travel routine too, lol :D


These pretty much sum up my eats during this road trip. I will see you very soon, Singapore.

Bifesta Cleansing Express

When it comes to skincare, I try to keep my routine as minimal as possible starting off with cleansing. Cleansing is always my no.1 priority because it keeps my skin free of makeup (including sunblock) and dirt. Before you start scratching your head off thinking which product works best for you, you need to know you skin type. I have a normal to dry sensitive skin, which generally only allows me to use products that are alcohol free and hypoallergenic formulated.

Bifesta is now my current favourite cleansing product. I have been using Bifesta Cleansing Sheet Moist for a month. It is a makeup remover cotton wipe with lotion that easily removes your makeup at the same time moisturizes your skin. After wiping off your makeup, rinse your face with water to wash off the excess moisturizing ingredients. Quick and easy!
Bifesta has a full range of cleansing products that caters your needs and my girlfriends and I have transformed the informative details into motion picture. Hope you guys enjoy :)

Apart from the video, GBGTV is always rewarding our readers don't we? :D We are now giving away the full range of products on our Facebook page and Instagram. Follow GBGTV to know about the contest details, good luck.

Styling tips - Off-duty style

Zalora top and pants // Never Follow Suit denim shirt // Saint Laurent chain wallet // Melissa Madga x Jason Wu jelly shoes

Off-duty look. Juggling between my full time job and blogging work, I have learnt to manage my time more efficiently. I only manage to take outfit pictures right after my work and before the sun sets. Bloggers gonna do what bloggers do. The highlight of this shoot is my Melissa jelly shoes which I have styled in with matching royal blue colour clutch and shirt. It very easy to wear and you all know how comfortable jelly shoes are. 

On a side note, Michelle and I have been working really hard for Mermaid Dreams second collection. We can't wait to show you guys, follow Mermaid Dreams Facebook page and Instagram for more updates.

NU YOU Trendsetter Party

Last minute styling works perfectly, at least for last week NU YOU Trendsetter Party. I overlooked the theme and was intended to dress up in a full black outfit, as usual. Only after I was rechecking the event venue and saw the theme was polka dot. I quickly called my friend's boutique and managed to come out with a polka dot outfit with whatever she has in her shop, call me fashion stylist :D

It was a great night where celebrities, bloggers, media, fashion designers, photographers and friends were able to get together to celebrate NU YOU magazine latest issue which they published three different covers with trend setters included Jojo Goh, Sheena Liam and Jane Chuck representing local personalities from different industries. Too bad one of the cover girl aka my BFF was not able to attend the party because she was happily travelling in NYC, lol. Apart from the celebration, fashion design Khoon Hui also showcased his AW15 collection and Ai Leng who won the best-dressed walked herself away with a Khoon Hooi couture piece too. Though I was nominated to be one of the best-dressed, but Ai Leng's Comme Des Garcons dress well deserved the prize :) 


Khoon Hooi AW 15 collection.

After-event picture time, always nice to see my favourite crazy friends Sheena, Amanda, Joyce and Sher! Joyce and Sher even wore matching kaftan. I wouldn't want that to happen, luckily both of them are good friends. Guess great fashion minds think alike :p

My last minute outfit details.
Lonely Dream Store polka dot long shirt and pants // Topshop basic white top // Zara heels and clutch // 


I know I have not been writing styling article lately, I promise to deliver more. Pinky promise :)
