Bangkok ~ Talad Neon

Hey Lovelies!

Today I want to share with you my recent visit to Bangkok’s new downtown night market ~ Talad Neon owned by the same owner of Platinum Mall.

Dreaming of a White Christmas
Neon Trees @ Talad Neon

Talad Neon is located next to The Berkeley Hotel between Phetchaburi Road Soi 23 and 29, opens Thu-Sun 17.00-00.00.

A cool hipster night market that not only showcases apparrels, accessories of all sorts, handmade crafts, food stalls all under the rainbow  coloured tents and containers but as well as food trucks too!

Things that are a must try::
The Shrimping ~ their grilled pork (succulent, juicy, BBQ to the right texture); butter garlic prawns and cheesy prawns are yummilicious too!

Popsciles (besides the usual soft drink Flavours, there’s a stall selling Thai Milk Tea flavour and coconut) ~ this is how you should eat popscile so they don’t drop onto your shirt.


There are alot of benches scattered around so you can buy your food from the different stalls and have a small picnic. The place is spacious enough for you to walk around without being bumped into (you know what I mean).

That’s a wrap on my food adventure at Talad Neon. Hope you have enjoyed reading as much as I have enjoyed sharing.

You should definitely check-out during your next trip to Bangkok!
Have fun!

Tony Moly I’m Real Avocado Mask Sheet

Hi Lovelies!

Sheet masks have got to be one of the best beauty inventions. I’m a big fan of sheet masks as they are so easy to use and convenient. They are perfect to pack inside your carry-on for a long flight to combat the dry air experienced at such a high altitude, giving you a nourished glow.

Try and Review sent me a sample of Tony Moly I’m Real Avocado Mask Sheet to try. The Avocado Mask Sheet has a sweet and subtle scent that isn’t too overpowering.

I used the mask during my recent short-haul flight as I wanted to feel refreshed when I land. It works wonders I felt my face was rejuvenated and awake. My skin feels moisturized giving me a radiant and glowing look.

20161221_090245271_ios

Its a good quick fix mask for dull or dry skin. No rinsing and no mess. You can keep them in the fridge for a chilled effect when you apply them.

Give it a try you might just like it.

Power Dresses That Are Geared Up For Success


It’s no coincidence that powerful and successful women never (or rarely ever) look disheveled when they are at their work spaces. They are always well-put together and exude a positive aura of being capable and and serious about their work. 

While physical appearance might not be everything, it definitely plays a significant role in helping you excel in your career. The right outfit can give you the confidence boost you need to reach your goals and may even influence your bosses’ and co-workers’ perceptions of your personality and suitability for hire or promotion.

Hi Lovelies!

For date night last week we attended the Red & White Party hosted by Mediacorp to celebrate all things uniquely Singaporean in conjunction with Singapore’s Birthday next week on 9 August.

We had loads of fun from dancing to taking photos at the photobooth, meeting the cast from Tanglin, the DJs from Class 95 and Gold90.5. I even manage to catch up with a friend whom I have not met for years. Unexpectedly formed new friendship with a bunch of lovely and fun ladies!

Flower Power ~ Kailijumei Lipstick

Hi Lovelies!

Am sure by now you have heard and seen the latest beauty obsession that has taken the internet by storm ~ the Kailijumei jelly lipsticks embedded with dried flowers, flecked with gold and infused with an aromatic scent.

These lippies reminds me of the glass encased rose in the movie Beauty & the Beast. The dried flower floats mysteriously in the middle of the lipstick. 


The lipsticks are clear until you put them on, when they turn a glossy shade of pink. The Kailijumei lippies offer a natural but glossy pink shine and the color changes depending on the temperature of your body.

I tried it out and here’s the result. I’m most satisfied with Barbie Doll Powder the pink is darker and more prominent.

Different shades of pink

The color stays on after you wipe off with a tissue giving you a lip stain effect. Cool isn’t it?

Lip Stain Effect

Currently Kailijumei lipsticks comes in 3 shades – Orange Fruit (minute maid), Barbie Doll Powder and Red Flames. Their latest edition is Dream Purple.

They are hard to get but definitely worth trying to get your hands on them as they are so gorgeous. You can order them from Zalora HK website. 

Good luck  and have fun lovelies!

Sunday Morning Date

Hi Lovelies!

Have a new routine on Sundays which is bringing my gal for private tuition which last about 2hours so what do we do? My man and I went cafe exploring of course!

Our first exploration led us to Atlas Coffeehouse situated along Bukit Timah Road.

 
 
The interior decor is simple yet classy and oozes a zen effect – cement polished finishings on one side and jaggered tiles on the other. Natural daylight spills in from the full height glass windows creating a warm and cozy ambience. Staff are friendly, jovial and the barista is really pretty too (sorry didn’t take a picture of her too shy to do it).

  
They have a decent selection on the menu and the serving are quite well proportioned. 

 

Sundate
 
We are both bacon lovers so naturally we chose “BBQ Bacon Baked Beans on Toast” for him and “Buttermilk Waffles with Candied Bacon & Vanilla Ice Cream” for me.

The texture of the waffles reminds me of A&W~ Crispy on the outside moist and fluffy on the inside. The fusion combination of savoury and sweet played out well and had me licking my plate clean.

 

Absolute satisfaction

We both had cappuccinos and was pleasantly surprised that we had different coffee art isn’t that cool?

   

   
I would say this is a good find and I’m definitely coming back again to try out the other waffles combination.

Thank you for reading.

Atlas Coffeehouse is located on 6 Duke’s Road, opens Tue-Sun from 8am to 7pm.

P.S. If you want to get a table go early when we left at 9ish the place was packed to the brim.

  

Monochromatic Monday – Fashion Diaries 

Happy Monday Lovelies!

I love how black and white looks chic, elegant and spells class. Plus it never goes out of style!

The cut-in shoulder blouse has a great silhouette with a fitted bust and goes well with a pencil skirt giving you a feminine yet professional look!

I added black and white patterned shoes for even more of an effect.

Thank you for reading. Have a wonderful week ahead!

Chic Friday :: Simple Style for a Gorgeous Look 

Hello Lovelies its Friyay! I’m definitely looking forward to the weekend to spend time with my girl. 

Business-Casual “Casual-Fridays” can mean different things to different companies but no matter what the company save those jean shorts, tattered jeans, crop tops, flip-flops and sneakers only for the weekend.

To me “Casual-Fridays” means slightly more casual/relaxed than Professional Business wear but one must still look chic and stylish.

I teamed a solid coloured ankle pants with a bold red checkered top. I have a habit of colour  coordinate my shoes and accessories. For footwear, I wore a pair of red chaine patent flatties which matches my top.

Happy New Year my lovelies!

Apologies for the long hiatus I was occupied with publishing my very first book, titled “ShenWendys Motivational Guide To Becoming A Yummy Mummy”.

What inspired me to write a book? I have always wanted to write this book for years but kept on putting it off due to the fear of criticism and lack of skills. But with time I overcame by choosing positive and honest people to share my work with. 

shenwendys

The book is to motivate mummys to step-out from their comfort zone to embrace life – uncover their hidden beauty and discover fashion as a tool to feel good and look beautiful.  Life isn’t all about kids and family after marriage.

I was surprised that the books sold-out in its first publication. Since then I have received both positive and negative feedback. Either way, the feedback were to me beneficial ~ for me to improve on my shortcomings and enhance my knowledge.

In summary, I couldn’t have done it without the encouragement and support of family, friends and my readers. 

Thank you for reading.

Krabi – Sun, Sand & Sea

Krabi a beach paradise ~ emerald-green waters, limestone cliffs, soft smooth sand and cooling sea breeze. Although September in Krabi is known to be the rainy season, we were fortunate to have clear blue skies and sunshine throughout our stay with only the occasional passing showers in the evening. Going during the low season was great as prices for airfare and accommodation was cheaper plus its less crowded too.

We flew directly into Krabi via Tiger Airways which takes about 1h40mins. For a peace of mind I had pre-arranged return airport transfers with KrabiShuttle.com, costing B1,198 (SGD46.97). When we arrived at Krabi Airport, the driver was at the arrival hall holding a place-card with our name on it. On our way back he was at our resort waiting for us earlier then the expected time. Good service, reliable, car was clean and they also provide WIFI in the car.

We stayed at Peace Laguna Resort, located in the heart of Ao Nang tucked away down a side street away from the crowded main street, noise and traffic. Out front at the resort mainstreet are lots of street kitchens, restaurants, cafes and convenient stores. A 5 minutes walk to the beach via the rear exit of the resort.

We booked a Superior Cottage, 4D3N inclusive of breakfast for 3 (SGD376.98 – quite a steal I would say). From the moment we arrived, the relaxation began. The cottages and pools (they have 3 pools) are set around a lagoon, surrounded by lush greenery and a view of the majestic limestone cliff.  There is WIFI connectivity through out the resort and good reception in the room too! The cottage we stayed in was huge, they had 2 double beds plus a day bed, a huge bathtub and a private outdoor shower. Breakfast was alright, with quite a selection and a variety of fruit juices – just stay away from the coffee. In the afternoon from 4-4:45pm they serve afternoon tea and snacks at the lobby. Although the place is a little worn but the surrounding and the rooms are clean and bed linen are changed daily. My only gripe was the mattress is too hard!

The beach is beautiful and picturesque. You can see some of the islands from Ao Nang Beach, sea shells lace the shorelines and long tail boats at the shore waiting to ferry tourists to the neighboring islands. A perfect place to relax and enjoy with a couple of beers.

Located right outside our resort is a street kitchen, Esan Food & Cooking Inter, that serves authentic home cooked Thai food. They are open daily from 5pm onwards. Seafood were fresh, food were delicious, friendly staff and price was cheap. Excellent value for money.

A good place for massage is Anda Massage Beauty Salon, besides massages they also offer manicure & pedicure and facial. Place is clean, air-conditioned, friendly and lovely staff who speaks quite good English. Natasha was hungry in between treatments and they offered her a plate of fruits to eat.
