Phillip Wain Treats

October 2nd, 2015 by sixpegs

I am proud to say that I have been officially smoke-free for 56 days today.

*cues applause*

And I am on a quest to feel healthy, look healthy and be a healthy 30-something.

As I have mentioned before, A and I will be getting married to each other
in San Francisco in November this year.
We’ve both been saying how we will love each other no matter how fat we become.
But bulls to that, deep down, we both want to look damn hot lah! Hahaha!
A just bought a treadmill. And as for me, I chose the easier and fancier way out. :3

As I was looking for a club to join for a gym, Phillip Wain asked if
I was interested to visit their club and give my readers an insight about what they do.
So, why not?

I’ve been to Phillip Wain about 6 years back.
At that time, I really enjoyed every single session I had with them but I didn’t stay
because it was honestly a little too expensive for me because I was still a student.
But now as an working adult, I am able to put a little more aside for these little luxuries in life.

Stick around for a little tour and review of the brand new Phillip Wain at Mandarin Gallery!

Stockholm & Kiruna

September 23rd, 2015 by sixpegs

In 2011 Beijing, it was -10 degrees C, but it did not snow.
In 2015 January, Seoul, it hit 0 degrees C, but no it did not snow. (IT RAINED! Busket….)
2015 February, Padova, there was snow all around on the floor, but I did not see falling snow. *dreads*

2015 is the year I first saw falling snow. And Sweden is that special place.


My light-chasing trip to Sweden is one of the best vacation I’ve ever had.

My week-long stay in Padova, Italy in January 2015 gave me some of the fondest memories I have in Europe.
A and I took on a dessert making crash course with Manuelina Culinary and it was the best choice we’ve ever made!
(Not an ad ok)
The class was so comprehensive, and we came back totally inspired and enlightened.
We also met some of the nicest people whom we still contact regularly until now.

Let me take you to the beginning of the journey.
The night before the flight – which is always the most horrible night because of the packing
and the anticipation of the long flight (hate long flights) ahead. Pfft!


It took us 1 transit, 13 hours on Emirates to arrive at Malpensa in Milan.

We will be flying off to San Francisco this November.
It’s time to seal the deal!

Last February, we promised each other that we would always be together.
And from now, it is just another two more months before the real deal happens!

I am so excited and so looking forward to everything I can’t even…IMG_9745

Hokkaido Fresh Milk

September 9th, 2015 by sixpegs

Flown in FRESH from Hokkaido dairy farms, Hokkaido Fresh Milk is impossibly fresh and
I can totally taste it with every sip!

I have tried fresh milk from various brands when we were picking a suitable brand for the café.
I always thought I know fresh milk very well (plus I like to drink milk lah!),
but Hokkaido Fresh Milk is really different from what I’ve tried before because it is SO very light but creamy!


Hokkaido Fresh Milk is synonymous with freshness and quality.
They make up 52% of the total dairy volume in Japan and are self-sufficient;
producing and supplying most food items for themselves.
Each and every cow has their physical condition checked daily, has spacious resting area,
are fed the best mix of coarse feed and they are only milked during their prime years.

I don’t know about you, but knowing such information about where my food come from really gives me a peace of mind!
The quality of milk is akin to the quality of care the cows’ experience.
And knowing that the cows are cared in a calm environment and given good nourishment,
it is no surprise that the milk is of such good quality!

My Lip Embroidery Experience

August 14th, 2015 by sixpegs

And so I always thought (honest opinion) that lip embroidery is a super auntie thing to do.
Like who on earth would want to have red lipstick on constantly?
And on days when you just wanna do like a out-of-bed look, you still need to live with that red lips?

While I was doing my eyebrow embroidery touch-up back at Browart Studio,
Lawrence (who runs the place) was going on and on about how the embroidery artist Jenny is super good with lip embroidery.

I don’t know what happened exactly, but eventually I decided to take the plunge and try lip embroidery for myself.
And that was also the time when I knew that lip embroidery is not all about red lips. Hahaha!

NX Side Of Life

July 7th, 2015 by sixpegs


As some of you guys might have known, I got my driver’s license a couple of months back and
am now a proud P-plate driver.
Although P-plate drivers do get pushed around on the roads quite a bit,
I’m gradually growing to love the whole freedom of being able to drive, zipping around Singapore,
and being able to get to where I want to go with much ease compared to before.

As much as I have been driving almost every other day since I passed my driving test,
I am definitely not used to a huge SUV. But at the same time,
I am SO craving for a bigger car to do all the things I always wanted to do if I had a roomier car.

The car was a little bigger than I expected, perhaps because I am used to driving a 2-seater car.
But with that extra space in the car, I suddenly felt liberated with all the things
I could bring around when I’m out on the roads!
(Read: Groceries don’t have to sit on A’s lap as I drive anymore!!!)

I have always had problem bringing the cats and dogs to the vet or for trips.
Because it’s often hard to bring too many animals onto a cab,
and you really do need a roomy vehicle for the animals to be comfortable.
And for a couple with 5 cats and 2 dogs, finding the perfect vehicle has become even trickier!

And the Best Selfie Camera is…

June 30th, 2015 by sixpegs

If there is a camera made just for taking selfies, it would have to be the Casio EXILIM EX-TR60.
With its Bluetooth Smart technology that allows photos to be sent automatically
from the camera to my phone everytime I take a photo,
it is so easy to retrieve the pictures so I can quickly post them up to the social media sites!
