Yululuka Head Therapy Spa Treatment, LAD Salon

I was so excited because this was my very first time to be invited to try out the new Yululuka head therapy spa treatment at LAD Salon. It came at the right timing, because I seriously needed to pamper myself after my bloody hell final exams. Thank you so much for the invitation dear LAD Salon. ;)

LAD Salon was so kind, they printed my name, prepared cakes and tea for me. And I was served in the VIP section. So blessed!



Story of YULULUKA
YULULUKA // Beauty that comes from fullness comfort that nurtures beauty 
Fullness was once a symbol of pleasantness, and beauty. Imagine all the gifts from nature. Fruits growing in abundance, an endless stretch of rice field waiting to be harvested, varieties of plants growing on a fertile land. And imagine, pleasantly fill and mellow fragrance. These symbols of bountifulness calm our mind and strike us with their sheer beauty. From ancient times and in many cultures, full and beautiful hair has always stood for women's beauty. YULULUKA is designed to offer women timeless and ageless beauty of hair. The endless pursuit for beauty, that comes from fullness and natured by comfort, will bear fruit in here. 

Yululuka head therapy spa treatment consists of total 5 steps which are cleansing, washing, hair treatment, skin condition and hair maintenance. Dearest Corine explained very clearly about every step when she was doing each step. I knew more about the hair spa during the processes. :)


STEP 1 - CLEANSING
[Remove] Has a soothing and calming effect
The cleansing process conditions the scalp and grows beautiful hair, while massage has a relaxation effect. One thing I would like to say out loud here is, Corine is a good massager!! She made me feel so damn relax when she was massaging my head and scalp! :D 
Sumiremove Paste was used during the cleansing process. It has a deep-cleansing massage paste for the hair and scalp formulated with Sumi - the Japanese bamboo charcoal which has adsorptive and odour eliminating properties. Besides the massage, the best thing I like about the first step is the refreshing aroma of eucalyptus. ;)

STEP 2 - WASHING
[Purify] The base of all hair care steps
The washing process purifies my hair, scalp and frame of mind. Corine chose the Chyprevial Shampoo for me as it is a light-textured shampoo which gives my damaged hair airiness and lightness. Not to mention, it has a calm and soothing aroma of chypre. 

STEP 3 - HAIR TREATMENT
[Nourish] Supplies lots of nutrition the hair needs
It is widely known that hair treatment makes the hair healthy and gives it the silky touch that every woman yearn for. I was using Floranourish treatment during this process. It hydrates heavily damaged and dried-out hair. Well, it was just perfect to my hair as my hair was dried-out due to the final exams and I didn't have much time to take care of my hair. By looking at the name, you can sense the relaxing aroma of floral fragrance. Awwww~

STEP 4 - SKIN CONDITION
[Scalp care] Scalp also needs nutrition and care
This step is to nourish and hydrate the scalp to keep it healthy and grow beautiful hair by a finishing lotion. Alvitamoist liquid was the finishing lotion used during this process. It is made to moisturise dryness-prone scalp and make it healthy. I thought my hair scalp was oily-prone because it gets oily easily and hence I told Corine so, but she told me otherwise. She told me that my scalp is not the oily type but the dry type, and the oil is generated to protect my scalp. 

STEP 5 - HAIR MAINTENANCE 
[Hair protection] Daily care is the key to keep the hair beautiful
Finally, it came to the last step of the super relaxing hair spa. Hair treatment without hair maintenance is like going out without wearing shoes. The hair maintenance protects hair from everyday damage and makes it look beautiful and healthy. Floraguard Blowmist and Grainmoist Milk were the two products I used in this process. 
Floraguard blowmist is a blow lotion mist to prevent everyday damage and care for the hair. It protects hair from friction caused by brushing and the heat of blow drying. I personally think this product suits me as I always go for hair wash and blow drying and this product can protect my hair. :) 
Granimost milk is a treatment milk which nourishes hair. It makes my hair moisture, easy to control and fresh. 
Both products need to be used before you blow your hair dry. 

Photos below are the result after the amazing hair spa. My hair smelled super good and smooth like silk. Happy girl is happy!! :D

My Birthday Dinner In Advance @ Uncle Zack By The Beach, Park Royal Hotel


I have a love hate relationship with June this year. 
June used to be my favourite month of the year as it is my birthday month. 
But June this year was slightly different compared to previous years. I couldn't really enjoy much in June, no birthday trip and no grand celebration with my family and friends as my final examinations fell on the first two weeks of July and I needed to prepare for it. :/ Since my birthday was near to finals and I knew I might not have the mood to celebrate it on the actual date so best boyf decided to celebrate it earlier with me. It was another celebration in advance, AGAIN. 

I accidentally ruined one of boyf's plan. We were supposed to reach at 7p.m. in the evening so that we could watch the sunset together and take nice photos but my hair wash appointment dragged my time and so in the end we reached at almost 8p.m. and it was already dark. :/ 

There you go the first surprise of the night...

 # 后车厢的惊喜 ♥♥




Found that we were overdressed because everyone was wearing super relaxing kind of outfit like t-shirts and shorts. But who cares? It's my birthday dinner okay!! :P
To be frank, we didn't really enjoy the dinner because we were late and it was too dark to take nice photos. :/
As for the food, it wasn't superb tasty too, so overall everything was just average but of course not the surprises. :)




# Complimentary bread with butter

# Starter - Grilled chicken breast salad with mangoes and avocado

# Duck Confit

# Pan Fried Barramundi Fillet

Since I was craving for Fruuze frozen yogurt, so we didn't order dessert there.
As usual, present unwrapping time after finishing the meal. I told boyf before not to buy me any present anymore because he just bought me a lipstick from Dior on the end of May and a Ralph Lauren polo tee at KLCC when he was there for his work as my early birthday presents. I am satisfied with both of them already. Dior lipstick and Ralph Lauren polo tee aren't cheap thou!!
I'm not 土豪, I don't have to wear such branded and expensive polo tee but he insisted to buy for me because he remembered that I've mentioned I might not have the chance to wear another Polo by Ralph Lauren because it is fucking expensive for just a polo tee.
When I received the polo tee I was really happy, but I scolded him after that. Well, I stopped nagging him after he said "I thought you'd be happy receiving the present, I thought you'd like it." I like it a lot but it is fucking expensive!! I told him not to buy me such expensive polo tee anymore!

Okay back to topic, he knew that I've fallen in love with Victoria Secret's Bombshell scent after the day he bought me its body mist and I've always mentioned I wanted a perfume of it. I was planning to ask my mum to buy that as my birthday present for me but who knows he got me that perfume!! Tell me how to not love this guy?
Thank you for everything my best boyf! 




Took some photos before leaving the place for Straits Quay. :)
The waiters were all busy and so the only way to take photos of two of us was the self timer! 





There was a customer saw us kept trying to take photos of both of us with the 'Uncle Zack By The Beach' board. He was kind to volunteer himself to help us. :)
There you go the only photo of both of us standing with the Uncle Zack By The Beach board behind. 


Our #OOTN 



Ended our night with Fruuze frozen yogurt and a walk at Straits Quay before going back home. 
The night was silent but not our hearts... :)


Feeling extra blessed and loved that night.
Signing off with my balloons and roses, mwahs~

Best Boyf's Birthday Dinner In Advance @ 32 Mansion

[OVERDUE POST] 
I have done blogging this before my birthday but I didn't publish it.


~



A sincere apology here to all my readers, sorry for not updating my blog for more than a month. 
I know I'm such an irresponsible blogger, I'm sorry! 
I had got a lot of college stuffs to deal with. Tutorials, tests, and assignments made me lazy to blog even though I had free time because all I wanted was just REST when I was temporary free from those college stuffs.
Finally today the blogging mood kicks in, so here I am blogging now. :P
Feel so sorry to drag this post from April till now. It's already June and it's my birthday month but I just updated best boyf's birthday in April. :/


Back in April...

Apparently we rarely celebrate our birthdays or anniversaries on the actual day because they always fall on weekdays. This year, same as our 3rd anniversary, best boyf's birthday fell on Monday too. So as the same, we decided to celebrate it one day earlier. :)
We were supposed to dine in at 32 Mansion on our 3rd anniversary celebration but eventually cancelled. Not this time, we made an early reservation and it was a wise choice!
The day was raining heavily when we were about to depart in the evening but luckily the rain stopped once we reached 32 Mansion. :)





The ambiance of the restaurant and the night music by Andrew Lim on the piano were just perfect, PERFECT!
The waiter handed us their menu once we were seated. After glancing through the menu, we finally decided to order a set dinner and an a la carte.
The set dinner comes with Mesclun salad with crispy fish & young mango, spicy lemongrass vinaigrette, Soup of the day, Choice of main course (we ordered Grilled chicken with roasted pumpkin, shiitake and foie gras butter), Dessert of the day and Coffee/ Tea.
Seafood aglio olio as the a la carte and Rose Wine and Lemonade as our drinks of that night.





# Impressed by the salad because the dressing is really nice. You won't believe it tastes like Penang Laksa. :P




I requested them to decorate the dessert *a brownie with vanilla ice cream* for best boyf. :P
We were quite awkward when the cake was served actually because I was the only one who sings along with the birthday song music. I dared not to sing too loud as we were not the only customers there. Everyone was looking at us and we both felt shy and awkward seriously. :P







After singing birthday song, making wishes, cutting cake, and eating the cake, finally it's SURPRISE x PRESENT TIME!! Yay yay!!
I actually recorded video when he was opening the first and second presents but I don't know how to combine them into one video so I can't upload it here to share with you guys. :/

Best boyf thought I bought him another perfume as birthday present but he was wrong. :P
He bought himself a Kenneth Cole Man Kind perfume as his own birthday present few weeks before his birthday and he didn't bring it home. Instead, he put it at my place. So I planned to give him a surprise with the perfume too. :P 
I bought him a watch but I made him believe that I bought him perfume from Sephora.

# His victory face because he thought he was right. HAHAH

I don't know how to describe his expression when he was unwrapping the first present and found out it wasn't his present. AHAHAHAH. He was like 'WHAT!? This is my perfume right? Where is my present?' I laughed so so so hard actually. :P
After that, without wasting time, I passed him his real present!! 

Here's his real present. :P
Tears were rolling in his eyes when he was reading the birthday card I wrote for him. I was surprised actually because this is the first time he cried because of my surprise. So can I announce my surprise is a success? :P

Hope you like the small surprise and present baby boy. ♥
Love you endlessly...







My friends always say that my boyf's photograph skill is superb. 
Hello, I train him okay? :P








 Now I'm looking forward to my birthday celebration! :P
Ciaos...
