On board Singapore Flyer on my birthday

When everyone else is either working or studying, I found myself along Marina Bay on a Monday afternoon.
Felt so peaceful and carefree to be here on a weekday as weekend is always packed with people.

I felt like a tourist that day, visiting the places of attraction at Marina Bay and blended well among the tourists. Didn't have the chance to go on holiday this year, so I went on an instant getaway to Marina Bay on my birthday to relax and enjoy myself.

So right after our lunch at Manhattan Fish Market, we make our way down to Singapore Flyer.

Do you know that Singapore Flyer is the world's largest giant observation wheel?

Strategically located as part of the bustling developments of Marina Bay, Singapore Flyer presents a moving experience at every turn with amazing 360-degree panoramic sights of Singapore.

I can't wait on board the Flyer and capture all the special moments around Singapore Flyer.

Experiencing Journey of Dreams by Singapore Flyer where guests will enjoy an immersive experience through the use of interactive multimedia and an intimate storytelling format told.

Oh yes, we finally board the Flyer. Let the amazing journey begins.

Singapore Flyer is a must-see and compelling visitor destination in Asia that showcases the mesmerizing cosmopolitan cityscape of the tropical Lion City, and even the surrounding of Indonesia and parts of Malaysia.

With Kai Pin. Thanks for accompany me today.

That's just awesome. We had a capsules with just 6 people in it, that's so exclusive!

We caught a bird's eye view of the pulsating F1 Grand Prix race circuit.

No idea why but I'm been down lately, there is this deep loneliness that buried deep in me.

And yes, we were reaching the high point soon. 
Can you see the view of the world class waterfront attraction behind me?

It offers an extraordinary views of our beautiful city.

We were now at 165m from the ground, that was equivalent to 42 storeys high.

Towering at165 metres above an extensive spread of water and the fascinating Singapore cityscape. It is indeed an unique experience.

Feeling the pulse of the urban city and witness its growth alongside new developments.

A sea of greenery.

Caught sight of Garden by the Bay. That's gonna be my next place of attraction to visit.

The Float @ Marina Bay.
The world's largest floating stage.

After the ride, we went over to Youth Olympic Park.

Admiring the beauty of Marina Bay Sands. I can never be tired of the view here.

Expectation is just disappointment in disguise.
So the best way to stay happy is don't expect.

Last but not least, happy birthday to me ♥

Product Review: Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate & Midnight Recovery Eye

Waking up to a beautiful skin.


An ideal good morning to me means having sufficient sleep and waking up each day with softer and smoother skin.

Being burdened with many stuffs, sleep is never enough for me. As such, my skin condition get worsen each day. Dark circles under my eyes and my skin looked dry and pale.

Do you know that our skin loves night time the most?

At night, there are fewer environmental stressors that detract our skin from its healing process. While we are sleeping, the skin is most amenable to rejuvenation and recovery.

Thus, skin care treatment is important before we head to bed. Follow the skin care regime below and you can wake up beautifully and look refreshing:

Do you still remember in the beginning of June, I attended Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Dream Team Blogger Event. Read it here if you haven't.

Thanks to the lovely Kiehl's team, I was given the Kiehl's Midnight Recovery set which consists of Midnight Recovery Concentrate & Midnight Recovery Eye.

So as promised, today I will be sharing with you the product review:


Midnight Recovery Eye
One night. Two drops. Younger looking eyes by morning.
Infused with the same natural ingredients as Midnight Recovery Concentrate, as well as Butcher’s Broom, this night treatment leaves under-eye skin feeling strengthened and replenished. Midnight Recovery Eye’s non-migrating cream texture is specifically formulated for the delicate eye area to help achieve fresher, younger looking eyes by morning by diminishing  puffiness and fine lines and wrinkles.

Ingredient present in Midnight Recovery Eye.


Squalane is a healing botanical lipid with a high affinity for skin to instantly restore and replenish.




Lavender Essential Oil helps soothe and stimulate skin's repair process for fresher looking eyes.




Evening Primrose Oil is an effective on skin barrier repair and boosting radiance.




Butcher's Broom improves microcirculation and reduces inflammation to soothe skin and reduce puffiness.

Application :
Dispense 2 drops and gently pat under eyes and along the orbital bone.

Midnight Recovery Eye utilizes all these goodness to soothe and calm under eye skin to reduce morning puffiness. It helps to strengthen the thin skin under the eyes, which is only 1/3 as thick as other facial skin.

My review:

Been applying it for early a month and it really reduces the puffiness underneath my eyes. My eyes now looked less puffy compared to the past. Every morning when I look into the mirror, I was greeted by a pair of refreshing eyes and now I even have the confidence to meet my friends with no makeup on.

My dark circles was hardly reduced. This might be due to the irregular hours of sleep. So starting from now, I need to ensure that I get 8 hours of  beauty sleep every day and work hard toward a pair of young looking eyes.

Retail Price: $72.00 for 15ml

Midnight Recovery Concentrate
Sleep tight, restore skin overnight.
A lightweight and overnight treatment that regenerates, repairs, and replenishes skin for a smoother, healthier skin. It works with the skin’s natural nocturnal activity when skin is most receptive to repairing itself from daily aggressors to dramatically restore skin. This potent elixir is 99% naturally-derived and paraben-free.

Ingredients:




Evening Primrose Oil is an effective on skin barrier repair and boosting radiance.


Lavender Essential Oil helps soothe inflamed or irritated skin while helping reduce skin blotchiness for a more even look. Creates a brighter and more radiant look to skin.



Squalane is a healing botanical lipid with a high affinity for skin to instantly restore and replenish.

Kiehl's chemists developed a powerhouse blend of active botanical and essential oils that work all night to replenish lipids for a fresher and more radiant appearance by morning.

 Get the best of the Midnight Recovery Concentrate.

1. Dispense 2 to 3 drops of Concentrate onto the palm of your hand.
2. Pat the concentrate evenly.
3. Gently breathe in the soothing essential oils.
4. Gently press the formula onto your cheeks, forehead and chin first for a perfectly even dispersion.
5. Use small patting motions to lightly massage the formula into the contours of your face with fingertips.


My review: A wonderful product which I used every night.

I'm amazed by the result overnight. My skin felt hydrated and radiant by the next morning. The Lavender smell makes me feel calm and soothing, perfect to apply before sleep. The product works well for every skin type. I have an oily skin and this midnight oil works well for me, my skin feels softer after daily use.

Retail price: $90.00 for 30ml

Though Midnight Recovery Concentrate might be a little pricey but I personally think that the price is worth it. We just need 2 drops every night and a bottle can last us for long.

Didn't took many photos at the event because I was busy throughout the event, going to the different station to get my hair and makeup done. My makeup artist really did a great job, I love the smokey eye makeup she put on for me. Not only that, I love my smooth hair that the two young male hair stylists had done for me. So fortunate to have two stylists doing my hair (:

The Gala Premiere of "Brave" Movie

Sunday is a movie day. 
Met up with GF for movie. It's been a long time since the two of us went out together, I mean just the two of us.

And yes, we are watching Disney • Pixar’s BRAVE.

So before the start of the movie, we went for some photo-taking session of at the "BRAVE" activities corner.
This poster was so cute - Merida with the 3 cute bear cubs.

Couldn't resist to take picture of every poster that were being displayed.

Spotted the real life Merida.
Nah, he was actually the crew over there.

Passionate and fiery, Merida is a headstrong teenager of royal upbringing who is struggling to take control of her own destiny. She feels most at home in the outdoors honing her impressive athletic skills as an archer and swordfighter, and racing across the magnificent Highland countryside with her faithful horse, Angus. 

With a spirit as vibrant as her untamed hair, Merida also has a softness of heart, especially when it comes to her wee triplet brothers. As the daughter of the King and Queen, her life is weighted with responsibilities and expectations, causing her to yearn to preserve her freedom and independence. 

When Merida blatantly defies an ancient tradition, the consequences of her actions prove disastrous for the kingdom. She must race against time to make right the result of her reckless behavior, her journey compelling her to look inside to discover the meaning of bravery and reveal her true fate.

Courtesy for Pixar Wiki.

With GF. I looked so cui without any makeup.

Merida is a skilled archer and impetuous daughter of King Fergus and Queen Elinor. Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the uproarious lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin, surly Lord Macintosh and cantankerous Lord Dingwall. Merida's actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Witch for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces Merida to discover the meaning of true bravery in order to undo a beastly curse before it's too late.

Find out more about the movie. Please visit http://paradiseger.blogspot.sg/2012/07/brave-movie.html

Rating of the movie: 4/5

Brave is an entertaining and yet meaningful film. Pixar film is never disappointing. I'm so glad that I did not apply any makeup because I teared while watching the film. The focus of the mother-daughter bond touched my heart. Often at times, we faced in the same situation of having misunderstandings and conflicts with our parents. The movie taught us a good lesson of effective communication. Though we should always listen to what our parents say, but parents should also listen to what their children have to say in order to know what we are actually thinking about. Communication is not just a one-way process, it is a two-way communication.

Do catch Disney • Pixar’s BRAVE in cinemas this 8 August 2012.

"Fate be changed, look inside, mend the bond torn by pride."
