L+F Wedding // DIY: Floral Arrangements

Monday, October 31, 2016

This post is kind of 2 years late? Hahahaha Leon and I - we're celebrating our 2 years anniversary come 22 November! So I wanted to do a couple flower arrangement to prettify my room / gatecrash table with all the props and games and eventually used at the wedding dinner reception table as well.

Wore my furry hoodie to Far East Florals to shop for flowers a day before the wedding! It's really really cold there bbbrrrrrrrrr. so suit up if you're the kind like me who don't specifically have something in mind and likes to take time to slowly shop around so you don't freeze till your teeth chatters.

Got us some blooms!

So my room is all in this pretty mess all day while I do my arrangements.

This was only my 2nd time doing a flower arrangements so I thought it wasn't too bad! :D

#FideLeonHome House Tour - The Living Area

Monday, October 24, 2016

Earlier I shared on the house tour of our Master Bedroom and I'm back to share more on our living area! Our herringbone floors are done with vinyl floorings and it's easily one of my favorite feature in our home, 2nd would probably be the wood paneling which really added character to our home.

So.. we don't have a TV, but we're using a projector and it is incredibly awesome! Since we don't watch TV for years now so we don't exactly care for the channels on TV, all the stuff we watch is streamable online such as netflix, kissasian etc.

Initially I only wanted to get an adorable palm sized pico-projector so I can project my TV shows from my laptop to on the ceiling so I can laze in bed and watch my show on the ceiling. This is Level 100 lazy i swear hahaha, but with the recommendation by my colleague, Leon and I bought this killer gorgeous 4K projector and installed it in our living area instead.

I love that the home theater system fits nicely with out home theme and looks very subtle and it comes with spotify so I can play, adjust the volume, change tracks via my spotify app even while I'm cooking or at the dining table. We have a Audio Technica turntable to play our vinyls on (we got a whole stack of awesome vintage vinyls from Leon's daddy) and a Minux Neo linked up to our Yamaha amp/projector.

Another panoramic! We also concealed our bomb shelter and have the wall paneling start from the entrance as well for the seamless look.

Aww! Zen brought us this incredibly awesome and thoughtful housewarming gift - The new #LifesmartSG Air Purifier!

They knew we were using the #LifeSmartSG smart home system and they got this for us to really complete our already pretty comprehensive system! Esp now that we're staying in a new BTO whereby lots of our neighbors is still doing their renovation or even up till now they haven't even gotten their keys yet, there will be lots of renovation dust/dirt in the air!

The #LifeSmartSG air purifier can clean up to an impressive 477m sq/hour, effectively purifying 60m sq all in under 6 minutes! The best thing about it is that it can be linked and all the LifeSmart linked lights and appliances can be controlled via our #LifeSmartSG app which has a really user friendly interface, lol perfect for lazy people like me!
Now we don't even have to get out of bed to turn off the lights before we go to bed or open the curtain when we get up in the morning, just a click on the app! We also have the motion sensor system to trigger certain lights the moment we step in the house so we don't have to struggle to find the light switch in the dark when we first get home, no more fumbling in the dark in the middle of the night when we walk out of the bedroom to get a glass of water. DAEBAK!

Now we can set certain timings to on and off the air purifier or we can turn on the #LifeSmartSG purifier with our app when we're on our way home so the air within our home in already purified and clean before we get home!

By the way this is not an ad ok (we bought the entire LifeSmart smart home system on our own, not sponsored) just sharing one of the new awesome home items we're using for #FideLeonHome!

They even came to film their promo video at our home a couple months back.
You can watch the video over at LifeSmart's FB page!

Our vacuum robot is the best buy EVER. I swept and mop the floor like a grand total of ONCE the whole 4 months since we have moved into our apartment and I have our vacuum robot to thank for the clean, nice feel when we come home every evening.

We got ours from Ecovacs, we schedule it to "start work" everyday at 3pm so by the time we reach home our home would be clean! It also comes with the wet function so we could add our Method squirt + mop floor cleaner  to the liquid compartment and the robot will mop away and leaving the floor smelling amazing and feeling oh-so clean!

This chest houses all our vintage vinyls, wedding albums etc!

#OllieTheSheltie: Puppy haul on KOHEPETS!

Thursday, October 13, 2016


I'm not sure if you've seen my #PuppyHaul(s) on instagram, here is #PuppyHaul 1, #PuppyHaul 2 , but I really love love love shopping online and buying all sorts of random (and necessary) shit for my pup (and myself of course)!

When I first discovered KOHEPETS, an online pet supply store, I recalled reading on Holly Jean's blog about how she pampers her pup Lola and treating her to a variety of treats and food. 

I pretty much had enough of running to the nearest pet store only to find that they don't specifically stock this brand or that product which I read reviews of online and wanted to get for Ollie and going home feeling disappointed, so I was checking out KOHEPETS site and to my pleasant surprise, they stock an impressive range of brands and products that I was planning to get!

Fast forward just 2 days after submitting my order (they accept cash on delivery or card payment on their site), #PuppyHaul 3 came:

KOHEPETS provides FREE 2-day delivery with purchase of $60.00 (which honestly is not hard to hit at all if you're shopping for 1-2 months worth of food/treats/supplements/toys at a time!)

I ordered a bunch of different brands of canned food for Ollie to try!
Wellness, Merrick, NUTRIPE and Really Pet Food.

I was previously researching on dog food and read about some of the higher quality dog food brands but I was not able to find some of these brands in some pet stores that I went to, but KOHEPETS stocks an array of popular and good brands such as Merrick and Wellness. These are 2 out of 5 top-rated dog food brands.

I'll definitely get my kibbles from them when I run out of my current bag.
Currently we have tried Wellness, Just For Puppy canned food mixed with his kibbles and Ollie just sluuuuuurps it up.

Awwww! You and your happy lil' tum tum!

Treats is a must-have around the house now that we're doing potty/obedience training at the moment, he's pretty food motivated- so lucky us! But this little guy way too smaaaaaart can, he wouldn't do sit or down if we don't have any treats in our hands and this dog KNOWS if you're trying to trick him! LOL

The first bag of treats I bought him when he came home with us was the Absolute Holistic Duck Jerky Sushi and he likes that stuff so I ordered the lamb version too. The Wellness Petite treats sounded yummy to me, one of my favorite combinations - apple + cinnamon! And I like that these are small enough that Ollie wouldn't get full too quickly on treats while training that it ruins his appetite for his next meal.

There are so many interesting brands/range of treats available, I'll definitely try other brands/flavors on my next order!

Toys toys toys! 

They stock a pretty comprehensive range and brands such as KONG as well, whereas Pets Lovers only carry a super limited, select few items from KONG, KOHEPETS has almost the full range I believe! Previously I was considering ordering some of their toys from Amazon previously but now I don't have to! 

The KONG WOBBLER is pretty useful to get your pup to eat his meals, Ollie wouldn't eat his dry kibbles if it wasn't mixed with wet food topping, if you put down a bowl of dry kibbles he would just ignore it. He would only have the dry kibble with a fun interactive toy such as the KONG WOBBLER. I can put up to 2 cups of kibble in there with no problem at all.

The KONG CuteSeas Octopus legs has this crinkly sounding material in the legs when you move it around and I love that it looks absolutely hilarious!

OK... Ollie,  dude could you just please. chill. out.

I was about to take a shot when he literally just bounced on and attacked his new Dogstagram toy!
He's totally into soft toys that he can really chew into and with the crinkly noise and squeaker in there, it seems like it's totally satisfying to chew on, just right up his alley.

#FideLeonHome: We got a new pup, Ollie!

Tuesday, October 11, 2016

Just a couple weeks back, Leon and I were researching on which breed of pup we would be most likely to get when we're ready (well I've always been ready for a new pup but Leon didn't want one so soon), some of the breeds that we shortlisted was Shiba Inu, Shetland Sheepdog, Japanese Splitz and we watched a ton of videos and read up on each breed's temperament etc and we settled on Shetland Sheepdog, a good medium sized pup well-suited for apartment living (with sufficient daily exercise of course)!

We were planning to maybe find one at the end of the year or even mid next year, but the other day since we didn't have anything much to do after my bridal job on a Sunday in mid-September, we decided to go to the dog kennels at pasir ris farmway to take a look, but just to take a look!

And then you know what eventually happened. Haha

Here's our adorable little Ollie!

He's currently 4 months old and gotten all his vaccination now, since our apartment is just by the waterway, we have been taking walks in the evening and it has been lovely!

It's now the 3rd week since Ollie has come to live with us and he surprises us with his funny antics all the time and he's such a joy to have around. hehe sometimes we know what he's doing is absolutely naughty but yet I can't help but laugh instead of giving a firm NO. :x

We intend to send our hyper ass puppy to "puppy school" soon for obedience training, do you have any good experiences/recommendations for any trainers in particular? Do share!

#FideLeonHome House Tour - The Master Bedroom

Monday, October 10, 2016

It's been ages since my last post! Awhile ago I shared the photo of our bedroom on Instagram and somebody requested that I update how #FideLeonHome looks like as of now, so here goes!

It's still an ongoing project of course haha we're constantly looking out for pretty decors to add to our home still, ok scratch that, I am constantly looking out haha. Leon being a guy-guy wouldn't care for stuff like this. I'm thankful that he pretty much allowed me to do up the house as I like. (:

In case you are curious, we spent a total of roughly 60k on renovation, flooring, doors, electronics including such as washer/dryer, dish washer, oven/microwave, vacuum robot, home theater sound systems (lol the one thing Leon insisted on) etc.

Thank god for Taobao, so much nicer choices at way better prices than SG! I shopped and bought most of our home stuff from decors to from there such as our bedframe, bedside tables, all our lightings, tv console, coffee table etc!

We have hacked two rooms to create a more spacious master bedroom and I love that the balcony is in our room beside our bed, making the space so much brighter, airy and more inviting. You can see the entire room if you zoom in on the panoramic image below.

Bath tub time is never boring too! hehe I always bring a beer or a glass of umeshu and my laptop to entertain me while i enjoy my relaxing me-time. :D

When we chose this block and unit 4 years ago, Leon was really good at checking the morning/evening sun, and based on the model what our views from our home would be (he better be, since he's a property agent! :D) and honestly, I think we have the perfect home! 

In the morning we have plenty of gorrrrrgeous morning light, our Lifesmart smart curtain is scheduled to be drawn automatically at 7.20am and I always feels so refreshed and happy to wake up in a light filled room. Nothing makes me more miserable than having to drag myself out of bed when the whole room is dark like I'm meant to sleep in for a couple more hours.

The Waterway Cascadia estate itself is really beautiful, it's tiered like this, shorter stacks in front just right smack on the Waterway, the center portion is the garden on level 2 and higher stacks at the back. Friends and my clients who came to my place to visit and for their makeovers / bridal trials always commented that the estate totally has the condo feel!

Found this 3 photos on our waterway cascadia fb group, another resident posted these:

They even made the entrance/pick up point for the Waterway Cascadia so beautiful with marbled tiles + silver lettering! 

Entrance to Waterway Cascadia from the Waterway itself, from here it's only a short 5 - 10 mins stroll to waterway point! So our masterbed room balcony overlooks the garden and a peeeeek into the waterway and I think it's really lovely with the sunset in the evenings as well.

The view from our balcony at dusk

and sunny in the day!
Will share more about the rest of the house sometime soon.

How to watch Netflix in Singapore - Not the crappy SG Netflix content, the full US Netflix Library!

Tuesday, February 16, 2016


When Netflix announced that they are officially in Singapore now, I was like WOOTS YAY BABY SIGN ME UP NOW PLEASE! TAKE MY MONEY, TAKE MY MONEY!!!

Buuuuuuuuuuut. I didn't realize that the content for Netflix Singapore is SO PATHETIC! 
It's so limited and just simply terrible!!

Like seriously the all the good shows like New Girl, family guy, dexter, Raising Hope.. or classics like F.R.I.E.N.D.S that i would like to watch again and again - are not even available in Netflix SG. 

And you know what, you're paying pretty much the same amount of monthly subscription fee (ranges from $11-$17/month depending on the plan you're on, I took the mid-range one) as Netflix US, but you get like this miserable amount of shows in Netflix SG! 

Here's my Netflix SG homepage:

Netflix US homepage:

You can obviously tell from the homepage that so much of the good shows are missing already, hell nooooooooooo!

Btw HULU is not accepting non US credit card anymore so that totally sucks since HULU is the one with the up-to-date dramas, I even tried the method of creating a US paypal account and it didn't work. :/ Netflix is great and there are so much stuff on there to watch but their content is available only till the latest complete season for most shows except for the Netflix drama series.

Since we're going to use a projector instead of a TV in our new apartment, i definitely want to be hooked up with Netflix so i can have endless entertainment 24/7 obviously! 

So basically to watch Netflix (US Library) in Singapore, you need to use a VPN service to "hide" your IP address and so when you login to Netflix, Netflix will think that you're in US and unlock the maaaaaassive content of the US Library!

Seriously. Awesome. 

Netflix. Nacho. Naps - I literally have this tee-shirt, no kidding. I HEART Netflix!
I'm currently using a VPN service, US IP Address (I got the 12 month plan and it's only US$5.75/month this is not a sponsored post or anything fyi, i'm just sharing what i'm currently happily using) and I'd say I'm pretty impressed with how easy it is to set up, they gave very clear instructions on how to set up on any devices, Windows/Mac/Iphone/Android/Tablets etc and customer service was quick to reply my emails on my questions too.

Basically to set up the VPN on your laptop, you 
  1. Download the vpn setup that they email to you upon signing up
  2. Run the installer
  3. To use the VPN, click Connect, sign in with the username and password 


Another VPN service that I would like to try after my 12 month plan with US IP Address ends is HideMyAss, haha just because their site looks really quirky and pretty, also they seem to have 3 servers in Singapore so i think the connection should be very stable? I don't know? Hahahaha

Another method would be Unotelly, I tried to set up the DNS thingy using the free trial for Unotelly, but failed miserably, apparently it was supposed to be real simple too but somehow it didn't work out for me, maybe i'll try it again next time but for now i'll make my life easier and stick with the VPN method.

Hope you guys are well entertained in your free time too! Hehe I'm currently compiling a list of US dramas that i've watched and love so i can recommend them to you guys too in another post. :D

#FideLeonSeoulAwesome - Eyebrow Embroidery & Permanent Eyeliner

Wednesday, January 20, 2016


So I've been getting lots of questions on the eyebrow embroidery + permanent eyeliner I did while I was in Korea, so far I've been loving how much time i get to save on a daily basis preparing for work.

But most of all, I love the shape of the brows + liner they did for me! Right now the brows and eyeliner looks like this, I would extend the liner thou since the liner they did for me is more natural and acceptable for when I'm not wearing makeup!

Shiok! Now I don't need to waste precious minutes in the morning trying to draw the perfect liner!

Super love the permanent eyeliner! It's like the best thing ever that happened to me HAHAHA
For Eyebrow Embroidery, it's suppose to last for 2 years or so and the eyeliner would last about 5 years!!! Whoa I didn't know it would last so long but thank god the shape they did is so nice!

1 week before heading to Korea i made an appointment with them via kakaotalk (see end of post for how to contact them and prices) 

Waiting area, Leon totally fell asleep here while waiting for me.

Individual treatment beds, so comfy the beds are heated so i fell asleep for abit too. haha

Applying the numbing cream and resting for 20-30 min while waiting for the cream to take effect, the whole process for the brows + eyeliner was about 2.5hours. 

For the brows it didn't hurt at all, literally just feel like somebody is moving a pen over your brows haha just a feeling of a faint pressure on your brows. But the eyeliner.. whoa..! hurts like a bitch and i couldn't stop tearing, I remember i was literally screaming internally "for god's sake please let it be over NOW!!!" T-T

I checked with the therapist and she said it was ok to touch up makeup after the treatment so i touched up my undereye area only with a cushion but i rmb the eyeliner was making my eye hurt so baaaaaad i was tearing non-stop.

The therapist gave me some antiseptic cream + instruction sheet in english to care for the eyebrow embroidery and eyeliner too.

This was how it looked like the very next day, I was told to not apply any eye makeup, no - mascara, eyeliner, eyeshadow and falsies and not to use facial foam to clean the brow/liner area for at least 1 week.

You will have to make your appointment with Natural B beforehand, you can download the kakaotalk app and add their number (+82-10-9960-2100) and find them on the app and check with them if they have available appointment on the date/time you would like to drop by.

Price wise, this was what i paid in cash, if you would like to pay with mastercard/visa there will be additional charges of 20,000won somehow so i choose to pay in cash

3D eyebrow 200,000won (240SGD)
Eyeliner 18,000won (216SGD)

So cheap and totally worth the money! 

Natural B

How to get there: Silim station Exit 1, 11-41
exit station at exit 1, walk straight for 1 min and you will see Natural B signboard on the 2nd floor

Contact: +82-10-9960-2100

Weekday 11am-9pm
Saturday 10am - 6pm
