Why Must We Put An Expiry Date On Women?

| |
Hi Huneybees,


I bet through your years, you would have heard things like "You are 30 years old and why are you not dating?", "How old are you? Oh! Why are you not dating yet? Women should be married at your age!" Blah~ Blah~ Blah~

Seriously, don't let others put an expiry date on you, your destiny lies in your own hand! It's time to shake those unspoken timelines society places on women with SK-II!

Do we have an expiry date?
And  If we haven’t ticked all the right boxes, are we worthless after turning 30?
Or can things be different?
Can we decide for ourselves who we are?

In a follow-up to last year’s viral “Marriage market takeover” campaign in China, skincare brand SK-II has teamed up with Forsman & Bodenfors again to shed light on the pressure women face as they age.
The centerpiece of the new campaign is “The expiry date” that stretches beyond China to include Japan and South Korea in order to create worldwide discussion.

In it, SK-II turns the proverbial expiration date many women feel like they have into a real one. The film follows the journey of three women as they pass through stages in life with growing internal and external pressure of timelines placed on them by society – manifested as an increasingly visible physical expiry date imprinted on their forearm.
More than half of women in Asia surveyed felt uncomfortable and offended by other people’s view on their status especially with regards to topics about their age or marital status. Almost 72% of women in Korea and 62% of women in China have experienced this discomfort and scrutiny. 
Japan and Korea emerged as the two most extreme countries where women feel unhappy about getting older — almost 6 out of 10 Japanese women and more than half of South Korean women feeling this way. 
In China, finding a suitable partner for marriage is the biggest cause of concern among single women under 30 with more than 6 out of 10 single Chinese women under 30 sharing this concern. 
These findings underline a broader social issue connected to age-related pressure.

Beyond the film, SK-II looks to facilitate a conversation around the stigma of age-related pressure by encouraging a regional social movement under the hashtag “#INeverExpire”- creating a welcoming arena for women to share their inner thoughts on the subject.

Can we change destiny by changing our thoughts?

Falling In Love With Mellower Coffee's Sakura Fubuki

| |
Hi Huneybees, ;


While the general public are still praying for the return of Gong Cha and sharing mixed reviews on the new cheesy milk tea by LiHO, a specialty café from Shanghai has been making great stride into the local F&B scene with very interesting coffee.


Imagine standing under the cherry blossom trees, wind blowing against your skin, making the sakura petals fall from the trees as you catch a whiff of sakura fragrance whilst sipping on your warm cuppa of Joe. This is what Mellower Coffee Singapore wants you to feel with their newly launched signature drink - Sakura Fubuki.

Designed as an unique Japanese twist to the typical Americano, this drink contains Sakura blossom preserve that is actually Sakura petals imported from Japan (Osaka to be exact) in a glass of chilled syrup with ice and 2 shots of expresso in test tubes.


To truly enjoy this new signature from Mellower Coffee, I suggest you, my Huneybees to start by mixing half a shot/test tube of expresso into the glass of syrup with Sakura blossom preserve just to sample it before adding more.

Doing so will allow you to find your own preference by adjusting the degree of bitterness, whilst reducing the saltiness and sweetness from the petal preserves and the syrup collectively. Just like first love, magnificent yet short lived, beautiful yet with a snip of bitterness.

For me, my perfect balance was to add in 1.5 shots (or test tube) of espresso, leaving me with a slight floral aftertaste. Not only is the Sakura Fubuki a dance on your taste buds, it's also Instagram worthy.


Sakura Fubuki is the latest of many signatures that Mellower Coffee has had created, such as Ice Lemon Sparkling Yirgacheffe and Ice Rose Fresh Cream Lungo, just to name a few, by a team of world class barista at its disposal.


Since its establishment in 2011 in Shanghai China, Mellower Coffee has grown from strength to strength with 20 outlets in China, 2 outlets in Singapore - 77 Robinson Road #01-03 and 108 Middle Road - and 1 in Seoul Korea . More information - http://www.mellowercoffee.com.

With Mellower Coffee's bold attempt to communicate to the world about Chinese sentiments towards Coffee as well as constantly pushing the boundary of coffee with new signatures, I'm sure it is going to be a new force to reckoned with in this fast growing potential world of coffee.



Do try it and let me know your thoughts of this drink =)

Hi Huneybees,




As we step into the last lap of the June Holidays, it's time to wrap it up with MEGA FUN, soaking up the sun at Sentosa - The State of Fun. There's tons to see and tons to do for you to spend full days with your friends and families!


I will suggest starting the fun at the Palawan Beach, have a splashing good time with mega inflatables across the whole beach amidst foams, slides, pools and walls. With free admission to the Mega Inflatables Playground, you can look forward to plenty of bouncing and sliding down giant inflatables including Singapore’s largest inflatable slide which measures 10m in height (three storeys), diving into a mega ball pool with more than 200,000 balls, wandering through an inflatable maze, and go ahead and challenge yourself on the traversing wall and balancing beam while having loads of water-oriented fun.


And if you are tired out at the outdoor Mega Inflatables Playground at Palawan Beach, parents can chill whilst the kids can play at the the iconic Palawan Pirate Shipwhere gushing fountains, splashing water, slides and a pirate-head which sends buckets of water downwards at regular intervals to thrill everyone.

Whilst waiting for the night to fall, go to the island's many selections of food cafes and restaurants to fill up those empty stomachs. Children will also find dining delights with exclusive menus and special discounts just for them. With over 120 dining options in The State of Fun, everyone is sure to find something to delight their palette.

Then, head over to the Merlion for the dazzling Merlion Magic Lights! show. The iconic and ever-popular light and music show returns this June with a newly curated June holiday-themed showcase. You can see the Merlion waking up to rainbow colours, showcasing what encases FUN within the island alongside with the fun accompanying music.

This NYX Eyeshadow Palette Might Just Give Urban Decay's Naked Heat A Run For Its Money

| |
Hi Huneybees,



The social media has been heating up with the launch of Urban Decay's Naked Heat eyeshadow palette. I've not gotten my hands on it yet, but there's already tons of photos and swatches out there. It's mainly 12 shades of different kinds of matte and shimmery browns that reminds me of autumn rather than heat. I was hoping for a little more orange or red tones though...



And as you know, the UD Naked palettes normally retails around SGD83 at Sephora stores in Singapore, which can be a little steep. So, I've might have found another eyeshadow palette from NYX that might give the UD one a run for its money at simply SGD32! 

I found this lovely palette whilst popping into Sephora to find out the launch date for the UD palette and boy, was I super happy to have found the NYX Perfect Filter Shadow Palette in Rustic Antique.



Though 2 eyeshadow shades short from the UD Naked Heat, I would have rather named this palette the Heat palette instead. There are some similar shades on both palettes, but the NYX one has more difference shade tones, making it more fun to create more looks and of course, there's the orange and red tones I was looking for. 

And if you have tried NYX's eyeshadows before, you will know that they are highly pigmented, easy to blend and definitely on par with a lot of other popular brands of makeup of there. So, below is a side by side comparison of both palettes.



Photo credits: http://phyrra.net
I think the UD palette allows one to create gorgeous smokey brown eyes, but as you can see from the look I created below, the NYX palette makes the eyes pop with much more dimension and colours. This is, of course, a more dramatic look, but I think you can easily create day to night look, 7 days a week, without having to repeat the looks at all. I even managed to use the shades to fill my brows, work as blusher and contour my face!




Do try out this NYX Perfect Filter Shadow Palette in Rustic Antique and let me know if you like it like I do...

LG & London Vegetable Orchestra Keeping The Music "Fresh"

| |
Hi Huneybees,


Who doesn't love eating fresh food daily right? But keeping your food fresh could be a challenge right? It's not like we have the luxury time to go shopping for groceries everyday, so what's the solution to keeping them fresh and last through the week and reduce on food wastage?

Food waste is fast becoming one of the biggest challenges of our time. According to the United Nations, up to one third of all food is spoiled or wasted before it is ever consumed. Roughly one third of the food produced in the world for human consumption every year - approximately 1.3 billion tons - gets lost or wasted, amounting to roughly USD 680 billion in industrialized countries and USD 310 billion in developing countries, especially when fruits and vegetables having the highest wastage rates of any food due to their fast spoilage rate and lack of artificial preservatives.


To raise awareness of the issue of food wastage on World Environment Day (5 June), LG teamed up with the music-making talents of the London Vegetable Orchestra (LVO) to demonstrate how the advancedthe LG refrigerators with patented Inverted Linear Compressor technology can help extend the life of fresh foods for weeks or months, even against the demands of quirky performance art.



LVO musicians create green-symphonies with edible instruments by “hacking” fresh produce in a musical way. The orchestra started more than 3 years ago and has been entertaining United Kingdom music lovers with their instruments constructed of squashes, peppers, cassava roots, carrots, and pumpkins.


Because their performances depend on the ability to generate precise sounds with their instruments, the musicians were forced to create new instruments every day with fresh vegetables as older produce could not create the notes that the musicians required as part of their repertoire. See the "magic" happening in the video clip above.


With their instruments kept in the LG refrigerators with patented Inverter Linear Compressor technology, the food can be kept fresh and there was almost no difference in the sound even after a week in storage compared to the common non-linear refrigerators.


This is possible because the LG refrigerators with Inverter Linear Compressor reduces friction through structural enhancements, prevents temperature fluctuations and focusses more energy on keeping food fresh, with less energy and less noise.


Refrigeration technology dramatically changed the way societies evolved because refrigerators allowed people to move away from the agrarian lifestyle into more urban environments. But even refrigerators have their limits. Sweltering temperatures can cause foods, especially natural foods such as fruits and vegetables, to spoil even when stored in a refrigerator. 

For maximum benefit, refrigerators must be insulated from fluctuating ambient temperatures which can alter the interior temperature of a refrigerator. The changing temperature inside the refrigerator has the greatest impact on the shelf life of food, more than the coldness of the refrigerator itself.

Thankfully for LG's technology eh? We can now enjoy fresh food daily, whilst saving the earth for more generations to enjoy. For more information on LG's refrigerators and other products, visit www.lg.com. Cheers to a better world!
