[Braces] Updates 2

Hi everyone!

It had been a long time since i've blogged..


so i'm doing a second braces update!!

My bottom and upper teeth are really straight now! 

Was looking back at my first braces post... WAKAO!!
soooo messy! why did i ever think that my teeth was OKAY last time??

So on the 7th month, I started on ELASTICS!

These small rubber bands are as painful as the spacers 

it was sooooooooo sore the first week...

but after that it was okay except for the occasional snapping of the bands when i yawn or sneeze.

it snap like 3-4 times a day! I used up the bag of elastics 3 weeks into elastic treatment hahaha
but thankfully, it's free~ hahaha

sooo... what does the elastic do?

 i went to google/youtube to look for diagrams to illustrate how it moves and all..

As you can see, the bottom and upper row are closer together now~
and it seems like the front row is less protruding 

I'll need to go back and ask Dr Tang if I still need an extraction to correct the overbite.

If not.....
After one more change of wire on my bottom row, i can remove them liao~~
*throws confetti* 

TIPS on choosing colors for ceramic braces:

Choose iliac if you love eating curry or drink tea!
They won't stain!

Even if they do, they become pearl white ---> transparent.

The first few months i choose transparent and they stain so badly!
looks super super super yellow and makes my teeth looks yellow too!

[Event] Tokyo Star Optical X Ettusias

Hello guys!

Back to update a super super backdated event post hahaha.

Yeah! A new optical shop from Japan is now in town (literally)! hahaha
It's located at Citylink Mall (Underpass at city hall mrt)

I've been invited to attend this event held by Tokyo Star Optical and Ettusias!

During this event, they shared numerous makeup styles to accentuate your spects-day-look!

Sometimes, my eyes are really dry and i've to wear spectacles out.

nerdy? geeky? bland?

Not anymore!!

You just need a nice pair of spectacles and a touch of makeup!


Have you noticed that spectacles follow recent trends as well?

Look at all the round frame spectacles you've got here!


Red round frame!

Half round frame! (I like this one!!)

 And geeky looking black round frame!

 and the side is really special too!

And if you'll like something that is always in fashion (or at least make you look less nerdy when with spectacles)....

go with thick plastic frames!

Am i the only one who always wear specs when there's a pimple on my nose bridge? hahaha

>.< the thicker the frame is, the more pimples it can cover

oh btw, Tokyo Star optical has got very kawaii kids specs!

If my face is small enough, I'll definitely make one. hahaha

Too bad, i've got to stay with adults specs (aka.... face-too-big-for-cute-and-fancy-kids-spec)


Their specs are really really really very light! feather weight!



As for makeup with spectacles on, I prefer light makeup!

However since i'm very yellow-skinned, I will always apply a generous amount of blusher and lip balm/tint!

*TIP: if you don't wanna makeup, choose specs with red frames! They will reflect some red color on your cheeks haha! *

And usually, just eyeliner! (heavier above the iris to make them look bigger even without circle lens)
but if you wanna use or cannot live without falsies, get the new lashes from Dolly Wink! They are curled so beautifully they don't swipe your lens hahaha

See the lovely blushers and lip balm from ettusias!
Btw, go try their frictionless puff...

REALLY AMAZING! can't really describe how it feels on my skin but... it's as addictive as popping  bubble wrap hahaha

go try! try ISH free one~

Korea Family Trip [Day 1 + Day 2]

My family and I went Korea last winter (late autumn) for vacation~

I was really excited bout this trip as we planned it since last last year (which is when keith and i returned from our first korea trip!)

My sister and I paid for the flights and accommodation for our parents as we thought it would be a great destination for them to visit! especially since my mum is a korean drama fan plus my dad loves nature and good food!

We took an early flight and arrived in Seoul late afternoon..
reached hotel in the evening.....

didn't stop for a rest nor snack...

*throws confetti*

We have been thinking/drooling of this meal since we returned to Singapore

armoured up! and ready to indulge! haha

 seafood pancake for my mum who doesn't eat raw food.

the cushion seats that.... are opted out for. hahaha

after that satisfying dinner, we walked around the place to look for dessert!

but we ended up at Paris baguette instead...

seriously... how can you say NO to such delicious looking bread? 

After that...
we went back to the hotel to have sufficient rest for the next day (.... =.= but still not enough energy haha... don't think we will ever have enough energy for day 02 itinerary)

DAY 02

Started early in the morning..
for a breakfast trip to GWANGJANG market (seriously my fav. place in korea but not because of the food's because of their vintage market! will elaborate in next few posts!)

 you can order everything you want by just pointing at the dishes in front of you!

 my dearest papa and mama :)

 very nice soup with fish sticks, ikan bilis and seaweed..

 le sis and me~

I actually love it hahaha

pig's ear!
easily my fav snack!
don't judge me.. 
it's full of collagen!

clear noodles!
very flavourful!!
koreans have their way of making simple everyday food taste special.

the typical korea food!

after a heavy heavy breakfast....

we headed off to ChangDeokgung palace...

 hahaha even though it's autumn, it's still pretty warm for us

lol i'm trying to shoot the PEEK-A-BOO effect...
apparently, it takes a good photographer and cooperative models to achieve that hahaha

 lol! my sis taking selfie!
wonder if it's on her instagram haha

they've got a super nice cafe inside


still pretty energetic and jolly while wanting for the secret garden tour to start...

what we didn't expect is....

and lotsa uphill, downhill and stairs....

not for the sedentary TAY family and keithy choi haha

but the scenery is really pretty!!

we have one down from exhaustion!

 lol. my dad... still taking photos..

anyway, at first i thought my dad would be the first one to complain about being tired as he has got surgery down last year...

but... hahahaha...


 you will always find the tay family sitting down at the corner while other tourists toured around. haha


walking around picking hazelnuts...

she kept picking hazelnuts!!!
though she didn't eat any of them.

spikey pokey 

PS: have you seen ancient toilet?

 this is the toilet for the servants and maids...


so after 90minutes long walk + hiking + stairs, we are finally near to the exit~!


(PS: I walked the whole day in heels hahaha OMG what was i thinking)

after that we walked to Insadong...

and there's a pretty traditional tea house around the corner.

around insadong, there's many interesting food stalls as well.


gigantic squid stick!

overall, it's a really fun yet tiring day!

and after that day, our itinerary totally changed to SLACK mode
