Get Pampered At Hai Di Lao Hot Pot (海底捞火锅) At 313@Somerset

| |
Hi Huneybees,

I was in the mood for some steamboat and after some shopping, hubby decided that we go try the newly opened Hai Di Lao Hot Pot 海底捞火锅 branch in 313@Somerset. The restaurant sits right where CD Store - HMV used to be and it's spacious waiting area greets you right at the door.

Compared to its flagship restaurant in Clarke Quay, this branch is definitely more accessible with the MRT station right in the basement. But similar to Clarke Quay, while waiting for your table, you can enjoy the tidbits and little bites provided and for the ladies, you can also get your nails done. The queue for manicure is another list, so you might want to come early or give them a call before heading down...

I was surprised by the spacious dining area as its previous tenant did not seem to make full use of the space! Aquarium on the left and we were lead to our table on the right. Our table was quickly arranged and a quick introduction, we were given a tablet to make our orders. You can join their membership to get points as well!

Their service is the selling point and the service staff fusses over you – we were given aprons and a piece of lens cleaning cloth for hubby the moment he sat down, they refilled our drinks quite quickly and responds to your every needs, recommending you some of their specialty as well.

Hubby and I shared just a little pot of soup, focusing mainly on our favourite meats and the total damage for 2 was roughly around SGD60. It might seem a little costly compared to the other steamboats out there, but given the good service and ambiance, I wouldn't mind coming back again!

Level 4, 313@Somerset, 313 Orchard Road (Somerset MRT)

[What's New] Change Your Skin Destiny With Offers At The New SK-II Pitera Pod

| |
Hi Huneybees,

With the extensive flying around this month, I'm so glad I managed to come back in time for the launch of SK-II's Change Destiny campaign in Singapore. It was held at  the new Pitera™ Pod at TANGS Orchard and I got to see the pretty boys - George Young and host, Utt together with the pretty Rebecca Lim.

The campaign was inspired by its ground-breaking Skin Destiny Study that looks to inspire women and men of all ages,  around the world to change their skin destiny and unlock the secret to lasting crystal clear skin.

At the media launch event, I got to do the SK-II Magic Ring Test again (Read about my previous test here). This time round, my results came back even better and my skin age was even younger than before! I turned from 25 to 22 and it is 8 years lesser than my real age! Woohoo! Thanks SK-II!

The loyal users - George Young and Rebecca Lim shared their experiences with using the SK-II products and one tip I learnt from Rebecca is that you can actually have the miracle Facial Treatment Essence stored in a small bottle mist and spray it on your face throughout the day. 

The event ended with the unveiling and autographing of the SK-II Skin Age Wall of Fame which featured an impressive number of more than 50,000 women in Singapore who had taken the first step in beginning their journey to Crystal Clear skin. The inspiration and findings of the Skin Destiny Study are found in SK-II’s interactive Skin Playbook. You can see it here -

For fans of SK-II, you can come on over to the new Pitera™ Pod at TANGS Orchard to check out the attractive promotions for a limited period till 5th Sep 2014.

  • When you discover your skin destiny with a free SK-II Magic Ring skin surface analysis and receive a customized 3-pc sample kit and a 7-day sample kit of the new SK-II STEMPOWER Eye Cream
  • Win 1-pc SK-II Facial Treatment Mask (worth $22) if you guess your skin age correctly

So, are you ready to join me in changing your Skin Destiny?

[What's New] Bask In Summer Fun With bellabox August 2014 - Summer Fresh

| |
Hi Huneybees,

My August bellabox came in a big bundle of joy. Themed as the Summer Fresh edition, the box arrived in a brown paper bag containing the usual polka dotty blue box and a couple of overflowing items.

The adorable watermelon sticker is already indication enough to tell you that what's inside is here to prepare you to have fun under the sun and yet still looking good – Premium teas, organic haircare, suncreen, bodycare, etc! It's definitely worth more than the S$19.95 subscription (comes with free shipping too).   

So let's check out my Summer themed box!

  • Petal Fresh Organics Aloe & Citrus Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner 
  • Sleek Kajal Eyeliner in Nocturnal 
  • Laneige Water Bank Essence EX 
  • Bonus: Tealy Premium Tea 
  • Bonus: Kneipp Body Care

From the box, I've also found some favourites and recommended...

Sleek Kajal Eyeliner in Nocturnal

Sleek Makeup is no stranger in my cabinet of makeup products. I simply love their eyeshadow palettes and I have them wherever I go. The eyeliner in the box is something new I can add to my collection. It's small and dainty, easy to bring around and I love the strong pigment as eyeliner. It is also very easy to smudge to create a smokey eye effect.

UV Aqua White Starter Kit
My bellabox arrived right when I was stepping out for my flight to Taiwan. When I saw the large UV prints, I knew I had to bring them along on my trip. The starter kit contained the CC cream, Purifying toner and Daily Defence serum.

There are all designed to help “whiten, hydrate, illuminate, tighten and increase skin elasticity”.  I was super glad I had them along with me as the weather in Taiwan was very warm, I needed my defence helpers.

The products are all very light, easily absorbed and it feels non-existence. The toner and serum kept my skin supple while the CC Cream improved my skin's colour and glow. I only needed to have the CC Cream all over my face, with concealer, swipe on some eyeliner and draw my brows. It was sweltering hot in Taiwan and it was advisable to have light makeup, which is also why I simply loved the UV Aqua White series...
Finale Whitening Cream

This skin lightening cream, made with natural herbs is here to make your skin is bikini/swimsuit ready. I'm curious to see its effects, have you guys tried it before? 

This month's box has really been a great surprise! Check out their website to order your very own monthly bellabox surprise today and don't forget to visit their beauty store!
