SK-II’s New Beauty Boutique @ Robinsons Orchard

2 Fridays ago, I attended the launch of SK-II’s latest beauty boutique at the newly opened Robinsons Orchard!

The new Robinsons Orchard is located at The Heeren!

Beauty corner for customers to try out the products!

The highlight of the day: Celebrities George Young and Desmond Tan came down to talk about their beauty and skincare pet peeves! Both of them agreed that they prefer women with lesser makeup instead of thick, heavy faces.

Eye-candies right in front of me! Can’t help but to notice how flawless looking both their skin are.

Celebrity makeup artist Venetia Stravens showcased some of the looks for this festive season.

I like how the look was kept very natural!

And finally, both celebrities competed to see who is the better SK-II beauty counselors for the day! George Young is in SK-II’s first LXP Deep Counseling corner which showcases the LXP Masterpieces – The range with the highest concentrated Pitera and precious ingredients!

Desmond Tan talking about the SK-II MEN range.

Had the opportunity to take a pic with them!! :) :)

The limited edition festive design this year!

Christmas is around the corner and if you’re still thinking of the perfect gift for your loved ones, you can consider choosing from the many festive sets that SK-II has!
After all, the best gift of all is crystal clear skin. :)

Spice Sutra Restaurant & Cafe.

For the past few months, my colleagues and I have been having this habit of treating ourselves for a good meal after our payday. And last month, we visited this place called Spice Sutra Restaurant & Cafe that sells North Indian Cuisine!

I’m not really a fan of Indian cuisine, or rather, I’ve never really tried it before except Roti Prata…. (I’m a super picky eater) But I decided to just give this a try and the experience turned out pretty good!

Tandoori Chicken (Half for $11.90).
Tender fresh chicken meat marinated in cream and rare spices, then grilled in a traditional clay oven. The chicken were really tender and well marinated!

Mushroom Pokaras ($6.90).
Deep fried mushrooms dipped into gram flour with spices. Very interesting dish and I would recommend this too. All of us enjoyed this dish!

Butter Nann ($3.50) & Garlic Nann ($3.90).
Their Nann was really good and texture was just right. I actually enjoyed this more than Roti Prata!

Butter Chicken ($15.90).
Boneless pieces of tandoori chicken meat cooked with puree of tomatoes, cream and mild spices. I think this was the highlight of the meal. I don’t really enjoy curry but this is really good! Mildly spicy with a tinge of sweetness. Goes well with the Nann as well!

We ordered rice as well to share but I couldn’t remember what type of rice was it.. They do have a few different selections from $6.90-8.90. Also ordered Fish Curry ($14.90) which I didn’t take pictures of!

The owners were friendly and the place wasn’t crowded on a weekday night. Would definitely bring my family/boyf to try out this place another time!

Last month.

So today we say hello to December, the last month of 2013. Has it really been that fast?? I remember just blogging a post in September about how we’re in the 4th quarter and suddenly 2months have disappeared in an instant.

And within these 2 months, my brother was done with his Alevels, and my boyf was just recently done with his peak period at work. Poor boy went home at about 3-5am every day for a week and we didn’t talk on the phone for 1 entire week cos he had no time. Missed him so much :( But nevermind it’s finally over!!

Looking at my schedule, I’m practically packed every weekend with celebrations/meet-ups! And Christmas – which is my favourite season of the year – is also around the corner! I loveee Christmas decorations and Christmas carols. I think everyone loves it too if not they wouldn’t start putting up those decors in Nov for 2mths…

Santa’s a pirate this Christmas at CityLink!

Hehe so cute!

Having a splitting headache but I can’t afford to fall sick cos I’ve sooo many things to settle at work! There seems to be this flu bug going around so drink up and rest well everybody!
