双林寺

Hello!
Went to 双林寺 (Shuang Lin Monastery) like 11+ in the morning, came back and slept till like... 4? :D
I go there once a year, usually during new year to pray and all, but this year I "fan tai sui"!
Hmm how to say "fan tai sui"... Like offend the tai sui. Okay... Yea... So I gotta queue up to pray, which prolly won't be soon since its so crowded nowadays. Anw, the temple is the most beautiful one (to me) in Singapore. It almost looks like a palace and its so natural.

Love the floor tiles that has lotuses carved on it!

They planted lotuses in pots, which I found very amazing. And, I always loved lotus leaves for their waxy surface cos it makes dew look super pretty and serene

The lil amulet I got. It isn't very small actually, haha. Its a piece of paper amulet inside. FOR $10. I guess its okay since I go there only once a year.

*I didn't know what's inside, till I smelt it. Then a staff told me, "it isn't scent inside, its sutra."

The yellow one's my bro's! This is one of the more "manly" and simple design out of all the floral and pastel coloured ones, HAHA.



I feel so at peace after praying. Hahaha maybe its psychological and all, but I truly believe in you. I feel more peaceful, calm and have a clearer idea of what I really want. Thank You.

[SAMPLE REVIEW] Skinfood Salmon Eye Cream

Hi! I got this a sachet of Skinfood's Salmon Eye Cream with some Korean cosmetics, and only recently I felt like trying it :P

I know right! Salmon?! On your skin?! Well, that's Skinfood for you. Salmon is not as bad as.. CREAMY CHEESE MASK! Well, I like cheese in my food but not on my face. *squirms*




It does not smell one bit like salmon. Smells a lot like jasmine flowers, A LOT!!! An overly strong smell of jasmine, which is weird since salmon is used instead. *50 points deducted*


It's a white cream, which I feel is oily and fatty, and only a little is required. This sachet lasted me for 5 times, for both eyes! Not the best texture for an eye brightening cream. I believe this is gonna be bad for people with oily or problematic skin and may not be able to withstand the richness of this eye cream.

Stays really oily for at least 10 minutes, felt like the absorption was reeeaaalllyyy slow. Besides, I've used it for 5 times and there are no significant changes. No brighteni…

[HAUL] Holika Holika!

The first branch of Holika Holika opened its doors in Singapore @ Wisma Atria today! Supposedly at 12, but when I reached there, they were still drilling and hanging stuff, and said to be back in 30 mins.

A huge poster of its ambassador at the side of its shop, CN Blue!!!!!!! Mysterious Magic Cosmetics~ (and endorsed by guys and a cat.. Hmm mysterious enough)

Before it was open! Yet to pull down its blinds~ It's a shop tucked at the corner, beside an escalator. Near Cotton On!
Couldn't get a nice picture of its sign! But you can see a bit of its interior, which is a lavender colour and has nice shelves! It goes with a mystical or magical theme :)

My mini haul from the store! VERY DE EX PLS The highly raved about egg soap @ $20.00 for 2 eggs Make-up Starter primer @ $2.50 per piece Wonder Drawing Eyeliner Auto Stick @ $10.00 Enamel Magicara Long and Curling FREE hehehe

Its a small tube since its free! But its pretty good! There's fibre in it and the brush is kinda special…

Outing to Farmart

Hi~

Met Angie for a bonding day awhile ago. Supposingly we went to the River Safari because Angie had free tix, but we ended up at Farmart because the tix were expired. The trip to Farmart totally savaged the day!

The place is easily accessible by taking a shuttle bus ($1 each way) that comes every 30 mins, opposite Choa Chu Kang Lot 1. It was an eye-opener for me. It felt like Malaysia. Lol.


There was a pet food store cum pet hotel and I bought some food (vitakraft sticks & fish fillets) for my favourite neighbourhood cats. The pricing is slightly cheaper than town prices so I bought a bigger pack. The place mainly is a farm and food place, as online articles mentioned that they sell cheaper seafood but the stalls were mostly closed that day. There were also a bird shop and prawning area. The farm.. is really interesting.

There were super tamed parrots (or mini parrots lol)
Stacked tortoises
Creepy toads
Sleepy birds
We bought the feed while we were there. The $5 set was totally …
