If you can vaguely see the famous green MILO logo at the back,
then you would have probably guessed that
Nescafe Dolce Gusto has just launched their new MILO capsules for Dolce Gusto!

M-I-L-O!
Don’t we all have a little MILO-lover inside of us?

The launch event was in the form of a pop-up store at TANGS in Vivocity.

There were more than just Mocha and Cappuccinos on the drinks menu,
and I shall leave it for you to explore on your own. I requested for Orange Mocha, sounds interesting right?
It is made with orange syrups and Dolce Gusto’s Mocha capsule.
I never thought I could actually have more than just what the capsules offer.
Imagine with a Latte capsule, I could actually spin out Vanilla Latte,
Caramel Latte and more at the comfort of my own home! Splendid!

The presentation was really pretty too! And the barista look like Asian John Lennon
with his hippie hair and round-framed glasses. :p

Dolce Gusto also made use of the event to launch their latest award-winning machine – the Mini Me.
I know the image you have in your head is the Mini Me from Austin Powers
but trust me this is much cuter than him.

It comes in a stylish grey or a sleek white color and despite its smaller size,
the capacity of the water container is actually as big as the regular Genio machine.
Sounds like a great idea to put one in the office cubicle if you’re an avid coffee drinker.
Small but definitely mighty!

You might be able to get a better picture of its size in this photo:

And so, back to the awesome newly-launch MILO capsule!

I feel honoured to be one of the first few in Singapore to “get my lips” on it and
I’m impressed by how “gourmet” it tastes.
If you like your MILO smooth, creamy and velvety with a nice froth, then you would go to heaven and back
when you taste their new MILO capsules.

From a breakfast drink with crackers when I was in Primary School, to now,
being a drink that I would frequently crave for, MILO has always been a part of my life.
I know when it comes to MILO, we all have our preferences –
some like it lighter and some like theirs more concentrated.
From my experience of fiddling with the machine, I can actually get a more “concentrated” MILO taste
by adjusting the water level during the preparation of my Dolce Gusto MILO drink!
*thumbs up*

My favourite part about the new MILO capsule is definitely the frothy finish.

Throughout my 6 months of working on a commercial coffee machine in The Tiramisu Hero Café,
I have learnt that steaming a good froth from milk is no easy feat.
It’s just amazing how I can get that same velvety froth with just a press of a button.
Have you had your MILO with a good froth before?
If not, then you better head down to TANGS and Vivocity to try out the MILO capsules.
I guarantee you – you’ll be instantly hooked! :p

The pop-up store at TANGS Vivocity is opened from 12pm to 7pm daily until 13th April 2014.

In conjunction with the new launch of the MILO capsules, Dolce Gusto has come up with a fun and creative Instagram contest!

If you think you’re “stylo milo” enough, strike your most “stylo” pose with the new Nescafe Dolce Gusto MILO
and 5 lucky winners will get to walk away with S$50 Dolce Gusto goodie bag and
if Lady Luck is smiling at you, you might also be the lucky winner to walk away with

On a sidenote, I’m also having a giveaway for tickets sponsored by MasterCard to watch
Shakespeare play, Merchant of Venice at Fort Canning on 4th May!

Screen Shot 2014-04-10 at 7.58.41 pm

Merchant of Venice and myself goes a long way back because it was my literature text
back during secondary school days!
Perhaps that is why I named the mascot of The Tiramisu Hero Sir Antonio and
always wished my Mom named me Portia instead of Peggy because the former is such a beautiful name! :p

I previously watched Macbeth at Fort Canning and it was such a priceless experience
being able to sip champagne and watch Shakespeare under the stars!

You may find out more about Merchant of Venice on the MasterCard Priceless Singapore site.

Leave a comment at the end of this post (do include your name and email address)
and share with me your most priceless moment.
3 winners will be picked by 23rd April, each walking away with a pair of tickets to Merchant of Venice.

The show would be on 4th May 2014.

Join me for a play under the stars! :D

Tokyo Bust Express

April 10th, 2014 by sixpegs

Without a doubt, having pretty looking bosoms would increase the sex appeal.
It helps us fill our clothes better, and as we look better, we would inevitably feel more confident too.
They don’t have to be big but a ‘healthy-looking’ pair of bosoms is definitely an asset!

Screen Shot 2014-04-04 at 8.22.49 pm

How are yours like? Hahaha!
For me, my bosoms are quite small la. :x
But I really never know that even small bosoms would give way to gravity and go south over time as well.
And because I like to wear strapless bras, I haven’t been giving my busts enough support.
Suddenly regret for being vain.

I visited Tokyo Bust Express for the second time and I’m really thrilled because
I know how amazing it is to be able to see results immediately after the treatment.
And knowing that it is important to go for more than one treatment to see the results,
I jumped at the opportunity immediately!
It was like a miracle how I can immediately see the promised results after my previous session with them.

Screen Shot 2014-04-10 at 2.25.40 pm

I returned to Tokyo Bust Express at City Square Mall and this time had to chance to
talk to specialist Annie about the concerns I have regarding my busts.
I could still remember how I felt a little shy having to discuss these intimate topics in details,
but this time round, it was much easier.
Annie’s pleasant disposition sure helped too!

Screen Shot 2014-04-10 at 2.25.56 pm

This is me listening intently to what Annie has to share about the treatments they offer.
Basically, the treatments they do are not just for aesthetically benefits
(although that’s awesome that it DO help aesthetically!) but also for health purposes –
by boosting circulation and detoxification by encouraging healthy lymphatic drainage.

People may think going through all these treatments are purely for aesthetics purposes,
but I truly believe having herb massages will not just boost our self confidence
(that comes with nice perky bosoms) and also helps circulation that in turn helps
improve our general “breasts health”.

All of the ingredients used in the treatments are 100% natural (like wild yam and dang gui, etc)
and no artificial ingredients or chemicals are used at all, which makes it very safe.

Before the treatment, the specialist will have to look at your bosoms and advise on
which kind of treatments are suitable for you.
Trust me, it’s all different so whether it’s for firming, lifting of sagging boobs or boosting circulation
(that will help in upping the cup size), they have different types of treatments that are suited
for individual needs.

Feels like Biology class all over again, except I didn’t learn about breasts to such details in the past.
Haha!

There were also many testimonials from previous customers.

Screen Shot 2014-04-10 at 2.26.12 pm

The treatment rooms are really girly and pretty, and I felt like I’m in safe hands because
every one I met at Tokyo Bust Express were professional and approachable.
They were also able to answer to various questions I posed – from the details of the treatments
to general information about caring for the breasts.

Must act coy when I’m wearing such a sweet-looking robe. Heh!

For myself, Annie advised that I needed general firming for them,
and to “adjust” the directions they were pointing at.
This is quite embarrassing to write on my blog but apparently,
I haven’t been wearing good bras that are well-padded and they do not give good support
(prolly due to the lack of bra straps).
Annie had also planned for me to receive a massage to boost blood circulation and
“push” the “armpit fats” back into the boobs. Sounds cool right? *thumbs up*

I’m thrilled to get started and it is always interesting and intriguing when the specialists just do the treatment on one boob, and then get me to stand up and see the difference.

Because the difference is always super big! I wish I could do all these at home!
I’d massage non-stop! :p

Screen Shot 2014-04-10 at 2.26.43 pm

The treatments were relaxing though intimate.
And if you’re wondering, they do not hurt at all.
I received a Firming Scrub, Bust Up Suction (you heard it right, suction!), Bust Toning Essence Treatment,
Okina’ C Therapy and a Bust Up Massage, all using their concoction made up of 100% natural ingredients!

The before/after difference is very big, like I can really see the shape of the boobs change
and the area above the nipples becomes significantly fuller as well.
From what I understand from the specialists, apart from receiving treatments from Tokyo Bust Express,
proper post-treatment care is equally important.
Wearing good bras that are well-padded and good bra straps, not sleeping faced-down
and occasional massages during bath times all contributes to healthy and pretty-looking bosoms.
Tokyo Bust Express also provided some creams (with their amazing concoction) for me to try out even at home!

My favourite treatment from Tokyo Bust Express was the Bust Up Massage because
it was super relaxing and the specialist did not just massage the breasts area but also on my shoulders.
I wish there is someone who could do this for me everyday! :*)

It was a fruitful afternoon well-spent with Tokyo Bust Express! :)
Tokyo Bust Express sure plays an important part in maintaining our womanly curves!

Special thanks to Annie, my specialist!

Biore Aqua Rich BB Cream

April 3rd, 2014 by sixpegs

I am a fuss-free girl and have never been a fan of the whole routine of the
moisturizer-sunblock-makeup base-liquid foundation-loose powder as it is too cumbersome,
time consuming and makes me feel like my skin cannot breathe under so many layer of products!
Since the birth of BB Creams, my life has been made a lot easier as it helps me cut down
the step of liquid/powder foundation.
However, as most BB Creams usually only have SPF 30, I still put on a layer of sunscreen before BB Cream
to ensure that my skin is fully protected from the sun! When it comes to UV protection,
I am kiasu in this way! :p

With my busy schedule now, I have even less time in the mornings to doll up and
I would rather have more time to sleep in!
Thus, I am always on the lookout for fuss-free products that help me save time
and effort yet still makes me look good! Read the rest of this entry »

Curry & Kandee

You must be thinking what kind of weird blog post title that is.
You’ll know why in a short bit.

I organised a little outing for The Tiramisu Hero people!
It was the first time we head out together as a “company outing” so I was quite excited.
We went to Casuarina Curry located at Thomson Road!
The folks over there are really friendly.
