Blog Better - Get Festive with Windows 8.1‏

Happy Halloween, everyone. 
Hope you guys have a spooky great time this Halloween.

I ended my Halloween with a festive party organised by Microsoft Singapore.
I must say the Microsoft team had put up lots of efforts in decorating the place, I could feel the Halloween atmosphere upon entering their office.

See what we had for dinner. 
Bloody hand soup in the making.

Want some potato?
Ask me first!


I had a great dinner as well as some catch up with my blogger friends before the start of the event.

Time to begin the event proper:
We started off with a welcome message by Microsoft Singapore, followed by presentation and introduction to the some of the latest gadgets.

This festive season, Microsoft has provide us some great gift ideas for the crafty to the fun-loving; for the gamers to the home-makers.

Presentation on Windows 8.1.

Windows 8.1 introduces new manageability, mobility, security, user experience and networking capabilities–with the goal of offering customers the best business tablets and versatile modern business PCs driven by the most powerful operating system designed for today’s modern businesses.

Windows 8.1 had 25 new apps. From mastering selfies to whipping up a storm int the kitchen with just a few swipes on your device.

A new app that will be ship with Windows 8.1 is Bing Food & Drink. It is designed for kitchen use, such that you can responds to hand gestures so we don't have to touch the screen with our dirty hands after handling the ingredients.

Another app is Bing Smart Search. With Bing Smart Search, you can go to the Start screen and just start typing or swipe out from the right to search for what you want - for example a movie. You'll see suggestions about what you might be looking for or a quick tap on "Enter" will expose you to a whole new way to use Windows. 

Next up was the presentation by the Lenovo team.

I like the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga model.
It has 4 different modes all in one machine - Laptop, stand, tent and tablet.

It offers the freedom and mobility of a tablet. Its 360° flip-and-fold design means owning one is like having multiple devices in one, with four innovative and eye-catching usage modes. Switch between the Yoga 11S' four modes based on what you choose to do. Maximize your productivity in laptop mode, play games in tablet mode, video chat in tent mode, and enjoy photos or music in stand mode.

Cool right?

We also had representative from the Toshiba team. 

Toshiba had come up with the new Toshiba Satellite P-series that offer Full HD display and UltraHD support for best-in-class gaming and entertainment experience. The Satellite P-series offers the latest technologies as well as a readiness for power-hungry applications. The models will be available in two variant: the lightweight Satellite P50 with full-powered Intel Core i7 Quad-core processor and touch-friendly Satellite P50t with 10-point touch support.

To meet the growing demand among business professionals for a combined laptop PC and tablet, Toshiba Singapore Digital Products & Services Group (DS) announced the Portégé Z10t. 

The thin detachable computer with Windows 8 Pro is a durable, convenient and powerful Ultrabook that, with just one click, transforms into a practical and intuitive tablet with an impressive handwriting experience. It offers full flexibility to professional PC users who want a computer that adapts to their needs. 

Besides the presentation, we also played Pictionary using one of the tablets. Our teams chosen the 2 themes - Horror movies and famous characters. 

We had so much fun planning on different scenarios like how should we draw if this character came out. I must say Terence's drawing was awesome, we were all laughing like crazy when guessing the word.

Nice gathering with Joey and GF, we were enjoying ourselves at the event.

With GF, Joey and Tracy.
I love how colourful Joey's hair is, I am getting sick of my black hair too.

Sony VAIO Duo 13 was on display too. It is a slider hybrid Ultrabook which provides a multitude of new user solutions with its unique form factor as well as accurate and versatile pen solution.

Last but not least, thank you Microsoft Singapore for the wonderful Halloween gathering night. I had so much fun and nice catchup with all my friends that night.

Product Review - Hada Labo SHA Hydrating Lotion

Keeping our skin hydrate and moisturise is important as it retains the elasticity and suppleness of our skin.

So in order to have smoother and healthier skin, we need to hydrate my skin inside out. Besides drinking lots of water everyday, we must not neglect skincare regime as well.

So today I will be introducing you a hydrating product that I personally love very much.

One drop locks up an ocean.

Hada Labo, a well received brand in Japan.

Hada Labo has a PERFECT X SIMPLE philosophy where only the finest, purest and highly effective ingredients are used to give you beautiful skin. It's also removes all unnecessary ingredients such as colorant, fragrance, mineral oil and other additives that burden the skin and it's specially formulated for Asian skin.

Hada Labo has proven to be a success with its Super Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Lotion becoming the No. 1 face lotion in Japan. Their achievement for the SHA Hydrating Lotion is amazing - 1 sold every 2 seconds in Japan.

This is how good the product is, I can't wait to try it myself. 

My product has arrived in a lovely packaging, it has come in a zip lock bag.

Hada Labo SHA Hydrating Lotion.

There are 3 types of Hyaluronic Acid present in the lotion that power up our skin's moisture-locking ability layer by layer.
- Hyaluronic Acid
- Super Hyaluronic Acid
- Nano Hyaluronic Acid

It contains Super Hyaluronic Acid that has twice the moisture retention capacity of Hyaluronic Acid (1g of Hyaluronic Acid can retain up to 6litres of water) to allow your skin to stay hydrated and smooth for a longer period of time. 

Why is Hada Labo Hydrating Lotion becoming the best selling product in Japan and Singapore?

  • Suitable for normal and dry skin. 
  • Watery, moist liquid texture. 
  • Moistures deeply into all layers of skin. 
  • Contains 3 types of Hyaluronic acid. With different sizes of hyaluronic acid molecules, it moisturizes skin from surface to deep within. 
  • pH balanced. 
  • Low irritation with no added fragrance, colors and oil.
Hada Labo SHA Hydrating Lotion is also featured on Taiwan variety show - Lady First, 女人我最大.
Xiao Kai Lao Shi (小凯老师) has demonstrate how to hydrate skin thoroughly with the correct application of the Hada Labo SHA Hydrating Lotion! You may go to Hada Labo's Facebook for the video.

The lotion hydrophilic nature helps to lock in moisture as it penetrates into the deepest layer of your skin to nourish from within.

If one drop locks an ocean, what about a few drops?
It will hydrate my skin all day long.

Every morning and evening after cleansing the face, apply sufficient amount of toner onto face and pat until fully absorbed.

My review:

Hada Labo SHA Hydrating Lotion has a watery light texture that is easily absorbed into skin, leaving no sticky feeling after application and prep my skin for the treatment. The toner has lived up to its claim, it leaves my skin feeling nourished and hydrated for long hours. After using the toner for one week, my skin condition have shown improvement. My skin have become more supple and moisturise. 

Another skin problem that I have is that I am a oil factory producer. But now after using Hydrating Lotion, it aids a little in oil control. I do not need to use oil blotter sheets that often.

With only 2-3 drops per usage, the 170ml bottle could last my for long. Most importantly, it is not pricey at all. 

Hada Labo SHA Hydrating Lotion is available at Watsons, NTUC, Guardian, SASA, BHG and Unity.
Retail Price - $22.90/170ml

Luxe Society One Anniversary Party at Club Kyo

Happy one anniversary to Luxe Society!

Congratulations to my two dear friends, Terence and Andrew, you guys had made Luxe Society a great success. I'm so proud of you guys.

Luxe Society is Asia’s premiere lifestyle portal. 
Since its inception in September 2012, Luxe Society has become the choice of affluent individuals for the latest exclusive luxury contents. With extensive coverage on the latest lifestyle trends, dining, fashion, entertainment and more, Luxe Society focuses on delivering these exclusive contents to young executives who have a huge influence in business, fashion, culinary and arts.

Over the past one year, Luxe Society has grew from strength to strength, from being the Official Lifestyle Portal for the Fashion TV Beach Festival in August this year, held at Tanjong Beach Club as well as the recent Sky Grand Prix 2013, held at Zafferano, Level 43, Ocean Financial Centre, to having its own Luxe@1 Anniversary Celebration Party at Club Kyo.

To celebrate this special evening, we had a celebration party at Club Kyo. 
It's time for party!!!

A group photo of the girls with Andrew. 
Coincidentally, we were all dressed in black.

We got a table all by ourselves and opened up a bottle of champagne. Time for a champagne night.
The waitress was dressed in a vibrant outfit that lifted our moods up.

The celebration began with a welcome speech by Andrew Kho, Marketing Manager of Luxe Society.

Exactly a year ago, on a bright sunny weekend, Luxe Society was born. 
Luxe Society was just an idea, one of them writes and is always on the move to discover the latest and newest happenings in town, while another loves anything that is of high luxury and loves to socialize. So when the two minds combined, they eliminated all impossibilities, and turn these dreams to reality, where Luxe Society would not only be new and exciting but would be a talking point amongst the high society.
With their effective branding, strategy and determination, they made it through the one year mark.

I'm glad to be here tonight and celebrate this very important milestone together with them.

The bunch of us spotted a waitress with her Halloween makeup.
I almost forget this week is the Halloween weekend. People would be dressing in their Halloween outfit for partying later on.

Jasmine, me, Linda and Christin.
The four of us had a good time together and we took lots of photos ourselves. That's what happen during every party we had, we simply enjoyed taking photos to keep as memory.

A solo shot with Jasmine. 
Both of us missed the fun at Spooktacular. Let's go again next year too.

The girls also had a photo taken with the handsome models.

We had a photo with TZ too. TZ was also the host of the party.
You are doing a great job (:

So nice to see TZ again after a few weeks.

I was on my way to toilet when I saw this and it gave me a scare. I was thinking if this is a real person or a mannequin. Haha, I got weak heart.

How can I not have a photo with Andrew. 

Thanks Luxe Society for the invitation to the One Anniversary Party. It was a great party and I enjoyed it very much. Look forward to hearing more about Luxe Society.
