Brother Bird @ Bali Lane

As I was craving for sweet bites over the weekend, I went to HoneyComb to satisfy my craving but I was welcome with new born brand taking over the space. Brother Bird is actually under the same people behind Stateland Café currently having soft opening for almost a week now.  There aren’t many changes on the interior design of the space though.

There are only 2 signature artisanal soft serve available at this moment which is Honeydew Sago and Cookie Butter Softserve at S$5.50 each. The ordering and payment to be made at the counter. The staff will then serve the softserve.1Brother Bird Bali

I ordered both to try. Both stood out with individual taste and I prefer Honeydew flavor. It has the fruity taste and feels refreshing with the combination. Cookie Butter is not bad too but I would prefer to share as the sea salt taste is slightly stronger and almond crunch is quite addictive to munch.

Hopefully they will come out for more flavours so that I can return to try again.  If I were to choose, I would prefer this than Honeycomb. Coffees are available too.

EVENT: Celebrating Dr Benjamin Yim Clinical Aesthetic & Laser Centre 15th Anniversary

I had a fruitful sessions attending and celebrating Dr Benjamin Yim Clinical Aesthetics & Laser Centre 15th Anniversary event last Saturday at Hard Rock Café. I am also glad that my invited guests benefits from the session as well. Yee Hui, one of my invited guest had much better understanding on the aesthetics treatment through the sharing and explanation over the session.1Dr Benjamin Yim 1Dr Benjamin Yim 10

Thanks Gotideas and Dr Benjamin Yim for organizing the event to educate us with better knowledge of aesthetics especially on botox and fillers. Light refreshments were served during the event while we can sit down and relax having a cup of hot tea listening to the talk.

I googled for clearer explanation of botox and fillers in case you need a general picture of it.

What is Botox and how does it work? 

Botulinum toxin, is a natural, purified protein that is used to temporarily relax facial muscles that cause lines and wrinkles. It can also be used to treat medical conditions such as hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). Botox is the original and best-known brand name and the most tested product on the market. It is the result of many decades of studies and has been used extensively in medicine. It is the safest product, and it is certified in the medical and cosmetic field.

What are Fillers and how do they work? 

As we age, the natural collagen and elastin in the skin lessens, as cells lose their ability to produce more of their youthful component. The skin becomes dryer, thinner and less able to fix itself. When we are born, we have plentiful amounts of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) in our body, but as we get older this store of HA diminishes, leaving the skin less well supported, and so lines and wrinkles develop. By lifting and smoothing targeted folds and wrinkles by adding subtle volume, dermal fillers can make a difference to a person’s appearance, giving them a fresher look.

The treatment of wrinkles with dermal filler will usually involve injecting this naturally occurring product (HA) through a tiny needle. The discomfort is minimal as the treatment does not take long to perform. The aesthetic outcomes of treatments with dermal filler are seen immediately after the treatment. Treating wrinkles with dermal filler is fast, leaving no scars. The Juvéderm range of fillers contains a variety of products, which can be used to treat different areas, from fine lines on more delicate parts of the face to deep skin depressions.

So, Dr Benjamin gave a general view of our aging process and the difference aging looks after botox and fillers. There is BEFORE & AFTER looks which gave us a clearer picture on how effectively the treatment can enhance the features and beauty of each looks. As every aging stage has its own concerns, Dr Benjamin provide us a better understanding on how the treatment helps or rather enhance the features of individual with the help of aesthetics. It is amazing how advance the technology nowadays and it can helps to slower the anti-aging process. Most importantly women can grow old gracefully.

We are also introduced with skincare makeup by Jane Iredale. It was created for sensitive skin and other skin ailments and dermatologists would recommend this to patients who just came out of surgery. The makeup artist was sharing that the products are pure minerals-no talc, preservatives, fd&c dyes or synthetic fragrances. We were given some of the products back to try. Can’t wait to give it a try!1Dr Benjamin Yim 6

Other than maintaining our appearance with the help of aesthetic treatments and make up, we need to build up our immune system and cleanse our body to keep our body healthy. Juice Up was one of the sponsors for the event and we were given a bottle each to try. 100% fresh, natural, unpasteurized and preservative-free cold pressed juices with no added sugar. The cold pressing technique ensures that there is maximum retention of vitamins and minerals in juices as oxidation is minimized when juices are extracted from fruits and vegetables. There are incredible hulk series (vegetable based green juices), glow series, fruit frenzy series and immunity series.1Dr Benjamin Yim 7

We were also pampered with desserts by Bakeafuss. Perfectly a sweet ending towards the end of the event. I am one of the lucky ones to win some prizes through the session. Can’t wait to try the MLD Facial soon!1Dr Benjamin Yim Jane Iredale

Staycation: Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson

July is an amazing month for me as I explore to two new places. One of it is Lexis Hibiscus which is located at Pasir Panjang, Port Dickson, Malaysia which is having their soft opening promotion starting from RM399 onwards. We didn’t manage to book that great deal but the best offer we got was RM659.52 per night for Premium Pool Villa. It is consider pretty decent as we shared among 4 of us.Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson 14 Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson 13

And we took approximately 5-6 hours journey bus ride from Singapore to the hotel door steps. We took Golden Coach Express bus that caters specially for hotel guests to Lexis Hibiscus with S$70.00 for 2 way trip.

We were greeted by the friendly bell boy upon arrival the hotel. The reception counter was huge and spacious where the counters are always filled with customers. We need to queue to check in at the counter. RM200 deposit was required upon check in for 2 nights. So, if you are travelling with cash, please ensure you have extra cash on hand. The money will be returned upon check out.

What makes the place is unique is the structure and architecture building of the shape of hibiscus with individual villa. All villas are in cabin form and build on the sea with the matching tiffany blue and white colours that look beautifully upon the sunset view. Every villa has private infinity pool and private space where best to share the moments with loved ones and gatherings. Since, the distance from hotel reception to the villas is quite a distance, buggy services are available for free.1Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson1Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson 5 1Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson 4

Each villa allows up to 4 pax and additional charges if you would like to have more people. The villa was spacious and able to fit more than 4 people. There are two king-size beds which were superb comfortable to laze around.1Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson 1 1Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson 3 1Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson 8

Once you walk through the bed room, the shower and toilet room is on your right and the wardrobe in on your left. The doors for the toilet and shower room are tempered glass doors without secure lock. Laundry basket is placed outside the shower room for your convenience. There is a squarish glass panel on the floor in between the shower room and cupboard for us to peek.1Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson 7

There is also a steam/ sauna room just beside the infinity pool. You can make adjustment on the temperature and get yourself indulge in the facility.1Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson 6

It was a lovely villa for chill and relaxes. The buggy services are available all time with a call away. We are given complimentary breakfast for 2 pax when we made booking. So, the additional 2 pax will need to pay RM35 each to enjoy the hotel breakfast. We enjoyed the breakfast as the spreads are wonderful. There are live stations for the choice of eggs. Western and Asian cuisines are available for your morning breakfast too.Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson 9 1Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson 10

Overall it was a pleasure stay with Lexis Hibiscus. The staffs here are friendly, approachable and willing to assist. The buggy services are always in queue throughout the time. So, we did take a stroll back to our hotel room enjoying the sea breeze and finding nice spots for photography. The hotel & resorts is still under construction and hope I will be back for their Panorama Pool Villa (Sea View/ Fountain View) and the Sky Pool Villa when it launches.
