To get a good Instagram-worthy photos, the most important thing is your camera angle, edit and posture. 
Here are some of the 5 insta-worthy places that I've researched and based on my experience. ;) 
1) Shilin Night Market

Shilin Night Market is one of the most bustling market in Taiwan. With those neon lights, rugged pillars and different colors, I am sure that Shilin Night Market will be good for an Instagram worthy photo! 

2) Eslite Bookstore

Eslite Bookstore is a spherical shape and it goes round and round and round. Definitely a mind-blowing Insta-worthy photo and there's a lot of places you can take. Like for example, this photo. Pretend that there's someone holding a book and that's where you capture the shot like this! 

3) Ximending

Photo Credits: https://www.rtaiwanr.com/

Located west of Taipei Main Station, Ximending was founded during Japanese colonisation era as a recreation district. One of the most popular destination for tourists, the Ximending Pedestrian Area is the centre of the district. Get to shop, eat and play all at one goal with this. Take out your 50mm F1.8 and stand at the middle of the street to take an iconic #OOTD shot! 

4) Beitou


Beitou is a mountainous district in the north of Taipei City, Taiwan. It is known for hot springs and natural green spaces. It's a really soothing ambience and environment for you to take natural and light #OOTD and also good for sightseeing. 

5) National Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall 


The National Chiang Kai-shek memorial hall is a national monument, landmark and tourist attraction. Look at the skyline, along with the white memorial hall and red flags at the side. I can imagine doing a handstand at the middle to commemorate this shot! 

When you take pictures of your #OOTD, what to do when you upload your instagram photos without wifi/data?

5 Instaworthy Photos in Taiwan!

Let’s face it, sending a bouquet of flowers needs perfect timing. You can’t order the flowers too early or they’ll wilt, too late and they won’t be a surprise. Sure, you can always opt for a scheduled delivery, but you might forget on the day of delivery so you risk missing the delivery or getting your signals crossed with your florist. There are endless ways it can go wrong!



Fortunately, there’s one online florist in Singapore which has made it their business to make the process of purchasing flowers fast and easy. I’m talking about A Better Florist.

Ever since they launched their responsive and streamlined online flower shop, I have been a regular buyer of their gorgeous bouquets. I like the fact that they don’t put out generic flower arrangements you can see in most flower shops today. While I get that old-timey florists like to keep a wide selection to suit all possible occasions, you do get the stylish element and flexibility from every single bouquet from A Better Florist’s curated collection. Their arrangements mixes complementary blooms like proteas, calla lilies and pastel roses so you get a colourful handcrafted bouquet ideal for any occasion, whether it’s for a birthday, anniversary, Valentine’s Day or Mother’s Day. The blooms are attractive and varied enough not only to be appropriate, but also to add a touch of luxury to the flower arrangement.

A Better Florist also packages their flowers in a very modern and trendy style. Their signature burlap wrapping is stylish, rustic and eco-friendly. You can also request your flowers delivered with a hip and cool mason jar so the fresh cut flowers can quickly be displayed when received. The freshness of the flowers are guaranteed as they source their blooms from the nearby flower nurseries of Cameron Highlands.

Even their online shop reflect their straightforward and streamlined aesthetic. You can see all the offerings in one page and click on the thumbnails for more description. They’ve categorized their smart and thoughtful inventory according to the popular and timeless bestsellers, seasonal flowers and bundles for event-appropriate gifts as add-ons. You can also order bespoke bouquets if you want one-of-a-kind handcrafted arrangements. Their team of expert florists can customise a bouquet based on your specifications.

The icing to the cake, of course is their free shipping service. You can argue that almost every other flower shop and online florist in Singapore offers free and same-day delivery, but A Better Florist boasts speed. In fact, they’ve landed on the The Top 10 Florists in Singapore for their “lightning fast free delivery service” – as fast as 90 minutes to be exact. So you won’t get stressed wondering where those flowers are.

This is actually a perfect service for busy professionals who sometimes may or may not forget to get the perfect birthday gift for your mom, wife or girlfriend. With A Better Florist, you can avoid getting accused of being uncaring and inattentive. Just head on over to their shop, select the perfect bouquet and they’ll make sure those lovely blooms find their way to your significant other.

Their success in Singapore’s market has prompted A Better Florist to grow their operations globally. So far, Hong Kong and Dubai can already experience and enjoy their unparalleled speedy delivery and lush floral arrangements. So treat yourself to some fresh flowers to perk up a loved one or add a touch of elegance to your home. If you sign up with A Better Florist, you’ll get a special discount for your very first purchase.

I do really love the concept. All you need to do is to take out a sachet of Expressions Jello from your bag/pocket/wallet and just slurp it like how you eat your 果冻! Each box comes with 7 sachet! 1 box is equivalent to a week's supply!  I’ve gotten two boxes so it’s two week’s supply!

Expressions Jello helps to reduce the sign of Aging, boost immune system, combat skin aging and of course to boost your metabolism to lose weight! As they are using enhanced and high quality ingredients.

_DSC4479.jpg

Made with high bioavailable hydrolysed deep sea collagen peptides from France, Manuka Honey, Royal Jelly, Formosa Ruby Djulis extract and Vitamin C, this formula allows for skin rejuvenation, softening and repair.




Manuka Honey

Manuka Honey helps to enhance and to retain the skin moisture. It also improves skin elasticity, anti-aging and skin clearing.



Royal Jelly

Research shows that Formosa Ruby Djulis extract has anti-glycation properties by inhibiting the formation of glycation products, preventing skin from ageing.  

DAY 1 - Before taking Collagen Jello

unnamed (20).jpg

Before I embark my route to 2 weeks of inner beauty shine and watch how Expressions Jello makes my skin glow with a touch of sweetness, I took a "before" photo and to see how can it actually improves my skin!

*DISCLAIMER: Before I continue writing, the photo was not EDITED nor TOUCHED by me or anyone else, just purely snap and upload.

As you can see from the “Before” photo, my skin was kinda saggy and I do have pimples. You can see a bit of inflammation on my face and I think that my face is swollen due to the intake of food in Singapore.

The taste of Expressions Collagen Jello is really really good. A little touch and mix of sweet and sour like a mixture of lychee and strawberry! It feels like you can add into your dessert though!

I’ve been taking it almost everyday for 2 weeks straight without fail. After my dinner or before I sleep, I will actually consume a sachet of Collagen Jello and further, I slept better than before!

DAY 14 - After taking Collagen Jello
unnamed.jpg

After taking Expressions Collagen Jello for 2 weeks, my skin tends to improve! I look more refresh and younger! As you can see, my skin is more firm, soft  and smaller and you can see that there’s no more inflammation nor swollen anymore! When I look back at my “Day 1” photo, I was pretty amazed with the result and the Expressions Collagen Jello!

5 Funny Things to Get at EzBuy

Sometimes, all we need to do is to take care of our beloved hair even when you wash your hair twice a day. Even though I am young but that doesn’t mean that my hair is in a good shape.

There are so many hair care products selling in the market. However, the haircare products that you’re using may not help to solve your hair problems…I was kinda petrified as my scalp is greasy and I didn’t know anything about it till I visited TK TrichoKare, where by the certified trichologists have an in-depth understanding of hair anatomy and physiology, enabling them to tailor the best treatments using premium European herbal hair remedies that tackles individual scalp problems.



TrichoKare won numerous awards such as Elle Beauty 2017 - Best Treatment For Hair Loss, Her World Spa Awards 2016, Harper’s Bazaar Hair Awards 2016 & The Singapore Women’s Weekly Hair Awards 2016. Even Singapore beauty blogger such as Xiaxue, Mediacorp artistes like Jaynesh and Anand have all visited TrichoKare to get their hair problems solved.That clearly proves how effective TrichoKare can be when it comes to promoting healthy hair growth, preventing hair fall and hair loss.


I was given a form to fill up my personal particulars and the state of my scalp. The consultation was professionally done by the hair expert, Gladys.





The consultant did a scan on my scalp by capturing different parts such as front and back and I realized that my pores were clogged badly..


From the look of it, my hair seems to be fine but however….when the consultant scanned my hair, it was horrendous!





The consultant recommend me to do their Award Winning Hair Fall Prevention Treatment whereby they customised the treatment based on your hair and scalp conditions. The treatment consists of Scalp Purification Mask, Deep Cleansing Wash, Tonic and Scalp Massage and Infrared Therapy Light session.



Scalp Purification Mask

_DSC3901.jpg

The scalp purification mask was cooling and soothing with a slight scent of lemongrass. It helps to deeply cleanse the hair by removing impurities and excess sebum while regulating the scalp sebum. The application takes up to 20 minutes to detox my scalp and absorb the nutrients.

Deep Cleansing Wash

_DSC3906.jpg

The wash was professionally done by one of their hair expert. They massage each and every single pressure point and the soothing botanical hair wash will deeply cleanse and regulate the pH balance of your scalp and remove the dead skin and grime.



Tonic and Scalp Massage

_DSC3910.jpg

After the deep cleansing wash, they’ll put a hot shoulder pad to relax my muscles and to improve the blood circulation.  

_DSC3913.jpg

Next, the consultant will start to apply the tonic onto my scalp to strengthen the cohesion of keratin fibres to improve the hair density. A scalp massage was given to ensure that the nutrients and proteins are fully absorbed into my scalp!



_DSC3915.jpg

I was feeling more refresh and my scalp was squeaky clean! The scalp massage was so good that anybody can fall asleep while doing the treatment.



Infrared Therapy Light

_DSC3920.jpg

The infrared therapy light helps to improve blood circulation in your scalp, in turn increasing oxygen flow to the hair follicles. It also helps to open up the pores and clean up your hair roots and prevent the follicles from becoming dormant! This intensive regeneration encourages activity on the cellular level to promote hair growth and restore your hair to its former glory while soothing your scalp. The heat was perfect and you can even use your phone while doing the treatment!

Screen Shot 2017-05-11 at 2.02.35 PM.jpg

My pores were badly clogged with dry and flaky skin as you can see from the picture above circle in red. However, at the right side, you can see the pores were unclogged and the flaky skin were removed just after 1 session of the Award Winning Hair Fall Prevention Treatment! I was kinda AMAZED when TrichoKare took care of my untreated hair and I must say, the results are REMARKABLE with the professional service by the hair experts!

_DSC3932.jpg

The trichologist pointed out a few problems especially at my age, I should learn how to take good care of my hair and scalp. She pointed out that if I do not continue to take care of my scalp, I will experience balding, especially the centre of my head due to the weak hair roots and thin fine hair.

I'm Just 22 Years Old But...

Everyone loves to achieve a clean and radiant face regardless of where you are at. Singapore is pretty humid so our skin tends to be oily and this can cause acne or pimples to occur!

I used to struggle with acne and pimples when I was going through puberty, but my condition has since improved significantly. Although sometimes when the weather tends to be humid, I will still experience breakouts. My skin is always oily and when it’s cold, it’ll become dry.

Why are there acne on our faces? WHY?

"Acne occurs when glands (called sebaceous glands) in the follicles of the skin become overactive. These glands produce sebum, an oily substance that helps to stop the skin drying out. Someone with acne produces too much sebum, which forms a plug with dead skin cells and blocks the follicle." Source from: http://acneacademy.org/all-about-acne/why-does-it-occur/

My face was treated well with 3M Acne patch, which allows me to solve my problem with just a little patch. My top favourite 3M Patch is the newest edition of 3M, “Nexcare™ Acne Patch Thinner 30s”!



I recall using the 3M Nexcare™ Acne Patch for Men 2 years ago and back then, due to the haze and the humid weather, I was having a breakout but this saved my life! I was attending a lot of events and of course, putting on makeup such as concealer didn’t really help as it clogged my pores.

Take a look at their packaging! It has been revamped to a cooler and anime-esque look[p1] !


Nexcare™ Acne Patch absorbs oily secretion and pus with its ingredient, hydrocolloid, to help clear acne spot-on fast. It is effective and targets acne without drying the skin and does not leave scars. Applying the acne patch reduces hand contact and prevents infection to the acne and surrounding skin. It is also waterproof yet breathable.

The cover even turns white when all the oil has been absorbed, giving you a visible sign that it is working.

Nexcare™ Acne Patch works on a variety of skin types and is a drug-free, non-drying way to absorb oil from clogged pores.

Last week due to the humid weather, I had a mini breakout near my forehead and I was due for an event IN 2 HOURS’ TIME.





Thankfully, I wasn’t all that worried as I was loaded with boxes of 3M Acne Patches! Ranging from Thinner, Women and Men! Guess which box I prefer the most?

YES. I PREFER THE THINNER VERSION BECAUSE IT DOESN’T LOOK OBVIOUS WHEN YOU PASTE THE PATCH ON.





It’s pretty simple to use. All you’ve got to do is just open up the box, tear out a patch and paste it on your acne/pimple! So easy!


What are the benefits of each patch?
