Travel Life Hacks

November 14th, 2014 by sixpegs

People who know me in person would know what a big travel buff I am.
My dream is to travel to all continents, and to see all the sights on my Bucket List.
And before I start seeing the world, I want to share how I love some of the amazing countries
we have in Asia – Hanoi, Phuket, Cambodia and even Kuala Lumpur, which is so near us!

I love asking the people around me for some of the life hacks they have when it comes to travelling,
and here is a list of ten travel hacks that I’d love to share with you!

#DFW Insiders

November 14th, 2014 by sixpegs

If you follow me (and a few other bloggers) on Instagram, then Digital Fashion Week would be not unfamiliar to you.
I am really happy to be one of the few bloggers on the DFW journey,
not because it means I am better than other because there are obviously
SO MANY GAZILLION better bloggers than me in Singapore, but because I’ve never done anything like that before.
It was a really good experience and I got to know some of the bloggers a bit better (and loving it).
Because of DFW, I also got to meet like-minded people from all over the world.
And they are all so darn cool.

So for the record, thank you Digital Fashion Week and Nuffnang Singapore.

:)

This is not an advertisement so I do apologise in advance if it seems a little haphazard.
(It’s 3am now and it’s almost bed time)

DFW started in Singapore and I got to know so many of the amazing local designers!
Ok, not know the designers per se, more of get to see their designs and learn more about them.
Some of my favourites are Max Tan (his stuff are SO cool), In Good Company and Thomas Wee.
I am also very proud of my friend Linda for her great works and design for her label, Yesah. :)

OK, can I also please take this opportunity to thank Shunji Matsuo for looking after my tresses?
Caely, Director of from Shunji Matsuo 313 is always so patient with me,
and is never demanding over absolutely ANYTHING.
I have to say it is really fortunate of me to meet her, she’s just different from the other hair sponsors I had.

So THANK YOU CAELY & Shunji Matsuo 313! You da best!IMG_0870

Endometriosis?

November 11th, 2014 by sixpegs

They always say “Girl Power”, and for me, it is exceptionally prominent during that special time of the month.
If you know what I’m talking about, and have once experienced that awful thing called “menstrual cramp”,
you would definitely agree with me.

A couple of weeks back, I had the opportunity to attend a talk by Dr Yong Yoke Fai from NUHS and
learnt more about how menstrual cramps could just be one of the many symptoms of more serious problems
like endometriosis.
Immediately after the talk, I shared the information I’ve learnt with A,
and it was only then when I found out that she actually had this same condition a few years back before I met her.

Why curl up in bed and suffer in silence? :(
Let me share what I’ve learnt with you!

Ten Things You Thought You Knew About Lesbians

October 19th, 2014 by sixpegs

…But You Don’t.

IMG_0395

I have once had a “friend” come up to me and asked me in the face why I chose to be a lesbian,
and is it whether because I don’t like cocks.

Maybe she thought she had a good sense of humour, but I was honestly quite offended
because I’m quite sure she wasn’t talking about the rooster.

And because a person with higher EQ would know how to choose his/her words more carefully,
not in this insensitive and an almost-mocking manner.
I hope she didn’t go around asking her childless female friends why they do not have children,
and whether it is because they don’t like their husbands’ penises.

See what I mean?
These are personal choices, no?
This “friend” I have is just thick. Period.

I think the lesbians are pretty misunderstood.
After a survey with my lesbian friends (firstly, no, lesbians do not only have lesbian friends), we came up with a list. Read the rest of this entry »

Sensodyne True White

October 5th, 2014 by sixpegs

My pearly whites are very precious to me, because I believe having clean and neat teeth
will help make someone look clean, fresh and polished.
That is why my toothpastes are always whitening ones, and I also visit a dentist
to have my teeth whitened whenever I feel there is a need to.
But because I also have sensitive teeth, I sometimes have to alternate between using
sensitivity toothpaste and one for whitening.

What I really like about Sensodyne True White toothpaste is how
it is both a toothpaste that whitens my teeth and helps it cope with sensitivity.
For those lucky few with no sensitivity issues, you can really cannot imagine how annoying (and painful)
it is to be struck by a sudden wave of “shock” when devouring your favourite gelato or
when you’re drinking iced water from a cup without using a straw. *wails*

And because I have bruxism, I uncontrollably grind my teeth at night and it has indirectly
caused my teeth to become increasingly sensitive over time;
prolly because I am gradually grinding away the enamel on my teeth. I know it sounds scary. Hahaha!

I also LOVE the package they sent me. Brand new toothbrush, Sensodyne True White toothpaste
and a bottle of Moscato to celebrate my new discovery of an awesome new toothpaste that
I’ll be stocking up hereforth! :p

Heh heh! You cannot see the toothbrush and toothpaste in here because I’m using them now already lah!

Sensodyne True White has been clinically proven to be super gentle and
is 10 times less abrasive than many everyday-whitening toothpastes!
Totally helps since I don’t need more abrasion on my teeth please. Haha!

TrueWhite.com.sg is now also running a digital campaign called #TrueWhiteStyle.
You can visit the website above to follow the behind-the-scenes of the campaign and
be entertained and see how Drea and Rachel did the shoots for the campaign,
photographed by renowned photographer Russel Wong!

Till then, don’t forget to head on down to the nearest drugstore or supermarket to grab your first tube of Sensodyne True White!
