Love For Dim Sum

My family and I love dim sum, any time any when any where, especially if you are talking out authentic ones from Hong Kong. What really attracted us to try Hong Kong Zhai 香港仔 is their latest creation on the menu – which I will be sharing later in the post.

An additional bonus point is that you can enjoy these yummies not only at their Ang Mo Kio outlet, but also at the comfort of your own home – with their Express Delivery.

Do note that there is a minimum order amount and conditions apply for express delivery.

Read on to find out more :)

Now, before all else, let us get to know a little more about this House of Dim Sum, and what makes them special.



House of Dim Sum

Hong Kong Zhai 香港仔 – The House of Dim Sum – Authentic since 1988.

Every dim sum creation is crafted diligently with heart and soul, and every ingredient is conscientiously selected to produce the authentic flavour of the Hong Kong dim sum.

And what is dim sum without the taste of Hong Kong?




Craze of Pokémon Go

Their latest creation – Pokémon Go themed dim sum!



Hong Kong Zhai 香港仔 is caught in the craze of Pokémon Go as well! How can you resist getting some bites on the cute little Pikachu and Pokeballs especially if you love playing the world top favourite game?

These cuties will be available from this Saturday, 27 August 2016 at their Ang Mo Kio outlet.

Set of 2 each: SGD$7.00
Set of 3 each: SGD$18.80

Go catch ‘em all!

Pikachu Bun: Chocolate Lava
Pokeball Bun: Creamy Custard Lava (流沙)

I especially love the Pokeball Buns because I’m a total 黃金流沙 person! The 流沙 is crazily tasty and it melts. Heaaaveeen.

For takeaway and delivery, it is advised to steam them for 3 to 5 minutes for the best taste, if you are not consuming it immediately.




Dim Sum Party Set A



This is good for 10 pax – just about nice for the family (of 6 adults and 2 babies) and some friends – so this is the party set we ordered.

If you are afraid of having cold food via delivery, fret not. Their Express Delivery serves hot and fresh out of the oven dim sum – right to your door step.

Everything looks and smells so good they make our tummies growl so bad it could shake the earth.

Pictures says it all. I wish you could actually smell and taste them.

MY SECRET NIGHT BEAUTY REGIME

Hi loves ♡

As much as I hate to admit, women age fast. We have to agree though, that aging is part and parcel of life and we can only accept. But always remember, we cannot change how our body works, but we can always improve. I am determined to age gracefully, and you should too.

To be frank, I have never used anti-aging beauty and skincare products before because I have always been a lazy woman. And then I realised it’s about time to start. Age is definitely catching up.

I have recently been trying on a new product religiously every night for two weeks – and the result shown is siginificantly brilliant!

How can I possibly not be eager to share with you my secret night beauty regime?

Good things must be shared :)




TIFFINY YANG SKINCARE | TIFFINY’S SECRET

As you all should know, Tiffiny Yang Aesthetics & Surgery has always been the one and only truthworthy choice for me on soft aethestics and everything beauty. So I was really thrilled to know that they have created their very own line of skincare products – specialising on youth restoring, fighting aging and/or dull skin.

Exactly what I need.

Dr. Tiffiny Yang knows my skin complexion well and will do no damage to it. That, I am sure. So of course, I confidently got myself a bottle to try, albeit having extremely sensitive skin.



TIFFINY’S SECRET AGE DEFENSE

Before all else, let’s have a better understanding of the product first.



Tiffiny’s Secret Age Defense is a combination of all the following good stuffs:

RETINOL
Undisputedly proven in countless clinical studies to reverse the signs of aging, reduce fine lines, increase thickness of the skin etc

MATRIXYL
The most recently discovered growth peptide to increase collagen of the skin and reverse aging. It’s the latest craze for maintaining youthful looking skin

LICORICE
Licorice root extract, for brightening of the skin

ANTIOXIDANTS
Protect your skin from free radicals that accelerate aging

ALL THAT GOODNESS IN A BOTTLE.




APPLICATION

✿ Ditch your laziness aside
✿ Religiously apply every night before sleep
✿ Rub and massage in circles for better absorbance

As simple as that!



REVIEW

Now, let’s FEEL the product.







SCENT
★★★★☆
No alcholic smell nor too much fragrance – which isn’t a bad thing as it means little chemical is used. Bonus point.

TEXTURE
★★★★☆
As you can tell from the pictures above, the cream is soft and smooth. Easy to apply as it rubs in well during application.

MOIST & STICKINESS
★★★★★
I hate oily creams and lotions but this is moisturising without feeling sticky. Absolutely love it!



RESULTS



After using the cream religiously for only 2 weeks now, there are already visible improvements of my complexion.

The fine lines and pores are siginificantly reduced, and my skin complexion has brightenend up and smoothened. I am constantly caressing my face because it feels so good now! Of course, that is a bad example. Please avoid touching your face unnecessarily. Also, I noticed that my usual acne outbreaks has lessened – even during menses period.

I am so loving it!

Because of the wonder of it, the cream has definitely become an essential part of my daily beauty regime.

Ladies, let’s age gracefully :)

Why Did I Go For Breast Augmentation?

Since young, I have been humiliated for having small boobs. Unless you are a flat-chested woman, you will never understand the pain of it.

As I grew up, having always needed to wear padded bras got really uncomfortable – and with that, my consideration on having Breast Augmentation is firm.

I was fearful of going under the knife initially. But at the end of the day, to be who I really want to be, the fear must be overcomed.

Most people might feel the fear after deciding on plastic surgery, be it going under knife or not, but I was all prepared mentally. I know what I have always wanted to do since I was still in high school.

Be Who I Want To Be ♡

And now with the arising trends for plastic surgery in Singapore, I took a bold step going under the knife – in beautifying myself. Many may disagree, but the less you care about others, the happier you will be.

Now that I had my Breast Augmentation surgery done, I am full of confidence, with a beautiful body every woman long for. And I am proud to step forward to share my experience with you.

Thank you Dr. Shens | Centre For Cosmetic for helping to gain the confidence in me.

I am finally able to wear anything I like! :)




Read on to find out more about the entire procedure of Breast Augmentation from consultation to my recovery journey up till date. :)




The Procedure of Breast Augmentation.

Consultation | Waiting Area


At Cosmetic For Surgery, I like that every patient is ensured of confidentiality and privacy during visits. There are private spaces with curtain drawns at the waiting area so there are no worries of anyone spotting you if you are concerned about that.

And so here I am at my little own space with curtains drawn while waiting for my consultation with Dr. Shens.





Consultation | Understanding The Different Types of Breast Implants

People come in all shapes and sizes, it’s one of the things that makes us different, makes us special. That’s why breast implants come in different shapes and sizes too, because not every person will want the same looking breasts after breast enhancement surgery.

There are two basic breast implant shapes: Round and Teardrop.

Let’s have a look at these two different breast implant shapes.

Round.



The most common of the implant shapes is the round implant, which looks like a compressed sphere. Women who wish to have more fullness in the top part of the breasts will probably consider the round implant to be a better choice.

Patients who choose the round implants do so for the lift, cleavage, and fullness they give to the breast.

On the other hand, some women may feel round implants look too artificial, and choose the teardrop-shaped implant which provides a lot more natural look – especially after the entire recovery process.

Teardrop.



The teardrop name comes from the way it is shaped, with a sloped contour that fills out more on the bottom than the top, mimicking the shape of natural breasts.

Even though the upper part of the teardrop implants aren’t quite as filled out as the round implants, they tend to give greater projection than their round counterparts with the same amount of volume.

Women who are seeking a breast enhancement that appears more natural – like myself – teardrop implants will definitely be the right choice.

Have you already guessed my final ultimate choice then?

There is no need for a second consideration – it has to be the natural-looking Teardrop implants. :)




Consultation | Understanding The Placement of Breast Implants.

There are differences between Over and Under the Muscle Breast Augmentation.

Let’s have a look and compare the differences.



The majority of breast implants are placed Under The Muscle.

There are several advantages to this approach. These include more soft tissue coverage which results in fewer visible folds, creases and ripples in the implant. This is especially important in women who have thin skin and minimal breast tissue.

Another advantage of under-the-muscle placement is a lower incidence of capsular contracture. This phenomena results in hardening and distortion of the breast. Patients can also have significant pain with capsular formation. Capsular contractures can occur with the implant in either position but the incidence is higher when the implant is placed on top of the muscle. For these reasons, under-the-muscle placement gives a more natural look in most areas.

Lastly, in layman terms, under the muscle is a better choice because you wouldn’t want the implants to move all over your chest as the recommended placement secures the implants under your own breasts.

You don’t have to worry about waking up in the morning with one implant at your neck and the other on your back. :D




Consultation | Assessment

Having understood everything I need to know about Breast Augmentation procedure and all my enquiries answered – with the both of us on agreement on the final decision, it is finally the dreaded time of revealing my non-existing boobs – which I didn’t expect coming.

I was told to remove my bra and top to get myself changed into their robe – for Dr. Shens to assess.

I assumed it was all talking and telling him my preferred size. But it is of course best to discuss with the surgeon on the best option after assessment – in consideration of height, weight, as well as your torso size. Especially on how your exisiting breasts are like at current.







Consultation | Breast Implants

I was then told to get myself changed into a white body-hugging top – and it’s reeeaaally tight! The purpose for the tight top is to hold the breast implants in place to get a rough idea on the overall look of how they will turn out after surgery.

I let out a nervous laugh because with the body-hugging top – and especially that it is in white – my nipples were almost visible. It doesn’t help that the fact that I was a flat-chested.

I look like a piece of cardboard.

However, Dr Shens professionally carried on with the assessment and suggested a 305CC for me – which is to be a C/D cup. Just the thought of it made me excited!

After stuffing the implants into my tight top – with his help – I turned to looked at myself in the mirror, man it was HUGE.

I actually asked Dr Shens if it was too big for me as I am more of a petite build.



Well, never think it will be too big for you if you have tried on yourself because as it settles down, it is going to look really natural and thus might be slightly smaller than expected. Albeit the fact that during my consultation when I thought the size was crazily huge, I secretly wished I had gone bigger.

They are turning out really well now – which I will touch on more later in the post about my recovery process.




Consultation | Confirmation of Surgery Date

After everything is finalised, I am back at the waiting area to fix a date for my surgery. I wanted it as soon as possible – hoping it to be within the next few days! I was told implants have to be ordered but it takes only a couple days to a week and unfortunately, the nurse is going on a long leave and thus I had to wait for about a month.




Waiting Period | Anxiety Kicks In

I was really excited, and at the same time, anxious.

There are so many things going through my mind on and off during the wait.

I start to have second thoughts about going for the surgery even though I knew it is what I have always wanted and I had definitely made the right decision.

If you are going through the same phase as me – which frankly it wasn’t just a one-time passting thought but every now and then during the wait – it is perfectly normal.

The worries come because you are making big changes to the body you have been living in since birth.




Pre-Breast Augmentation Surgery.

There are a few things to take note before the surgery.

Mammograms Prior to Breast Augmentation.

Cosmetic For Surgery requires a pre-operative mammogram before the Breast Augmentation surgery – which isn’t terribly expensive as I thought so – costing about SGD$100 odd. Having this diagnostic test prior to breast augmentation will allow you to have a baseline mammogram on file, which is helpful when you have future mammograms – especially that in any case later on down the road, if any situations should arise.

Pre-Breast Augmentation Operative Instructions.

Prior to my breast augmentation surgery, Dr. Shens gave me list of pre-operative instructions. Not adhering to the instructions may cause problems during surgery and/or during your recovery, so of course, I was a really good girl on this.

Also, it is always important to let your surgeon know if you have been taking long-term medications – especially that I have anxiety disorder. This is to avoid complications during/after surgery. And so I diligently list out all of the medications that I have taken and are still taking.

Do Not’s.

✿ Do not wear contact lenses to surgery
✿ Do not wear makeup on the day of surgery
✿ Do not wear nail polish on surgery day
✿ Do not wear jewellery, including any body piercings, on surgery day
✿ Do not wear any hair accessories containing metal (such as barrettes or clips with metal springs, etc.)
✿ Do not eat or drink anything for at least 8-12 hours before surgery
✿ Do not consume alcohol for 24 hours prior to surgery
✿ Do not smoke – but if you do, try your best to stop for at least four weeks prior to surgery. I can understand the pain of going cold turkey on this but if you cannot quit, cut back as much as possible as smoking constricts the blood vessels which can interfere with the healing.

Do’s.

✿ Do wear comfortable clothing and shoes on the day of surgery

It is preferable to wear pants or shorts that can be pulled on easily. Your top should be buttoned or zipped in the front. It should not have to go on over your head, as lifting your arms above your head will be very uncomfortable immediately following surgery.




Breast Augmentation Surgery Day.

I don’t know how I managed to get through the long wait as well as the worries, but before I know it, it is surgery day.

I am about to become a new me.

Pre-Surgery.

I was nervous as hell and constantly chanting, “I AM SCARED” to the point they started laughing. I laughed with them. The entire surgical team was very gentle and their hospitality makes everything at ease.

Pre-surgery tests are made to ensure I am good for surgery.











Surgery.

I was brought into the operating theatre – and still chanting, “I AM REALLY SCARED.”

The anesthetist – Dr. Tan – is a very soft and gentle guy and handles the patient very well. He chatted with me and explained every single detail before he injected the anesthesia. My response to him was the same old chant.

Anesthesia time.

He placed an ice pack to numb the to-be injected area and for minimising the pain. I am not afraid of needles so it was all good. I believe patients who are very bad with jabs will be easily calmed as well with his soothing tone and swift hands.

Unfortunately, I am not able to share with you the surgery process as it is against medical law in Singapore to provide medias of operations and such.

You may want to search on YouTube for such procedures to understand more but my advise is – NO. I don’t think I want to know how my body is getting cut up. My family, however, was curious and went ahead to check out some videos. They apprarently regretted.

So, I am glad to skip the photos of bloody procedure as the thought of it scares me enough.

As long as I know how how the procedure is like and that I am in good hands of Dr. Shens, I really don’t need the bloody details – literally.

What really matters to me is the end result. :)



Post-Surgery.

TA-DAAAHHHHH!!!

It’s finally over!



Surprisingly, there was no pain at all!

There were no discomfort nor pain to the point I panicked that I did not go through the surgery due to some unforeseen circumstances.

I looked down at my chest but still wasn’t sure if I had gone through the surgery at all, I guess it is normal since I was wearing very loose fitting top and that I couldn’t feel anything.

So, I had a quick peek under my top and there it is – I have big boobs.

Actually, big tight boobs to be exact.

HELL YEAYYY.

I was told later that anesthesia was also injected into the chest area from the top corners of chest areas so I won’t be feeling any pain around the surgery area – and it can last up to 3 days.

I woke up with biscuits and Milo served – and it felt like a feast. I haven’t had any food for more than 12 hours, and my normal eating time is every 2 hours, no kidding.

I was constantly attended to by the nurse and clinic manager, everything was going smoothly thus far.

After my meal and a short rest, I was taught a few arm exercises by the nurse for faster recovery and loosening of the tight muscles – from stretching of A/B to C/D. It started getting uncomfortable because the chest felt really tight when I stretched but I was told to do it religiously, no matter how painful it gets.




Medications.







Recovery Process.

1st Week.

Nobody told me about the post-surgery excruciating pain I should be expecting from third day onwards – when the injected anesthesia wears off in the nerves around the chest area. The amount of bruises freaked me out as well – it went from chest to stomach and even all the way down to my thighs. As explained by Dr. Shens, the bruises ‘moves downwards’ due to gravity and flow of blood – and will heal in a couple weeks. The amount of bruises and how heavy it gets depends entirely on each individual.

It was emotionally and physically torturing – which explains why there is only one photo of the bruise. Looking at myself in the mirror was unbearable and too much for me to take.

The first week was probably the darkest period in my life thus far – I sank into depression.

I started blaming myself.

Why did I choose to go through this? Why am I bringing this much pain to myself? Why did I go under the knife on my perfectly healthy body when most people avoid operations due to the risks? So many questions were running through my mind. The feeling was overwhelming.

I stopped talking for a couple days.

I went back to Dr. Shens on the fifth day – in a distraught state. Dr. Tan was there as well. Upon a short talk with them – about how I was not able to cope and the crazy pain was too much to bear – I broke down in the clinic.

I am grateful for them to take my whinings and hysterical behaviour patiently. The entire team was very supportive and stayed by me.

“Trust me, Vikki. I know this is a tough period for you. But once this phase is over, you will not regret. You will grow to love your new body,” said Dr. Shens.

Eventually, my emotions got back in control, and I left the clinic feeling very much assured and ready to fight on.



Recovery Process.

2nd Week | Follow Up

The purpose of the second week follow up is to remove the dressing and to check for any infections on the wounds, and of course, to ensure that the implants are settling down in place.

All is good.

Except for the scars.

I had a look at them and they looked really scary, after which I learnt that they are only scabs and will peel off to the shade close to your skin tone.

I was told to press on the scars every now and then to smooth them out faster. And after 6 months, a laser treatment will be done to blend the scar with my skin – for a more natural look.

The pain by now has more or less gone away. Some people take the prescribed painkillers for at least a month (not recommended) but I stopped after 14 days.

Thinking back, I was so over-reacting during the first week. Still I don’t know how I did it, but I am glad that I have managed to pull through the toughest period and is beginning to appreciate my new found boobs now.







Recovery Process.

4th Week

The implants are settling very well, and my side boobs has softened. It does help by doing the arm exercises religiously. Most importantly, all that pain and bruises have since subsided. There are still tightness in the middle of the chest, probably due to lack of stretching of muscles in the inner part of chest.

Nevertheless, still looking great :D





Recovery Process.

6th Week

Scars has lightened, and my side boobs has completely soften.

This makes me excited!

The inner chest area, however, takes much longer to recover. Nevertheless, albeit it being a little stiff still, I can see and feel the implants gradually softening and settling down to the desired position.

It is looking more and more natural day by day.

I reaaally can’t wait for the full recovery results – which takes from 6 months to a year.





Recovery Process.

12th Week

My breast augmentation surgery has finally past the three months marking now.

My boobs have softened so much more, but still far from full recovery. There is nothing much I can do but repeating to myself, “be patient, be patient, and be patient.”

The awesome thing now is, I CAN FINALLY BUY MYSELF NEW BRAS.

It feels like back to a little girl, going on a hunt to find a bra for the first time, with the help of my mom. I am not exactly sure what fits me now. I am nervous. I am thrilled.

And comes the moment of truth ……… I went from A/B to C/D!

No more uncomfortable thick paddings!

It is worth the wait.





Before & After.

Now let’s have a comparison – before and after my Breast Augmentation surgery – with the same top.

I know you love my two new girls as much I do!


BEFORE



AFTER




All the downs I had went through was all worth it.

I am now confident to wear any tops that I fancy – low cuts, sexy dresses and stuff – without the need to worry if they look empty on top. My new body makes me look good in anything!

I have now gained so much more confidence in me, and I sincerely thank Dr. Shens for everything.

Photoshoot for magazines (Her World & 8 Days) coming up next.

I can’t wait to share with you the awesome photoshoot with my gorgeous new look!

Stay tuned!

For more details on each procedure seperately, do click on the respective links to read on the entire procedure of my 1-Point V Face and Nose Filler treatment to know better :)

And it’s done!




Post-Injection.

I was a tad greedy this time and requested more fillers on my nose bridge than previously used – which caused minor bruising (takes just about a couple days to go away) and Dr. Tiffiny Yang is as usual, sweet and attentive to patients, providing me with heat packs for the bruising before I leave.

So I had a little rest with this little cutesy purple thingy on the nose to ease swelling and bruising before I get home :)

Dr. Tiffiny Yang always ensures her patients are satisfied and happy.

As what I have previously mentioned – if you have always been looking to do,
DON’T MISS THIS DEAL!

What is IPL?

IPL is an abbreviation commonly used for Intense Pulsed Light.

A technology similar to medical lasers which is used by cosmetic and medical practitioners to perform various skin treatments for aesthetic and therapeutic uses including hair removal, photorejuvenation, and treatment of dermatologic diseases.

Unlike lasers, however, IPL uses a carefully selected broadband spectrum of intense light to target the melanin pigment in the hair, the melanin of pigmented lesions, the hermoglobin of vascular lesions or the porphyrin molecules associated with P. acnes bacteria.

IPL is the gold standard for these indications because of the excellent results, comfort level and minimal risk of compilcations.




Knowing IPL Permanent Hair Removal Treatment

The light pulses only works on hair follicles which are actively growing at the time of the treatment. Hair will continue to grow from follicles which are not active at the time of the treatment.

This means that a course of treatments – intensitivity and number of sessions depending on individual hair growth – may be needed before results can be seen.




Why IPL Hair Removal?

Since young, I face the taunts of people around me about my hairy self – of what my brother would say, “山豬腳” (wild boar’s leg), or worse – an ape. I am named the hairiest person in the family – yes, even in comparison with my Daddy and Brother.

As a lazy woman myself, I am not exactly keen on religiously shaving my legs. Lazy to what extend you may wonder – well, it usually takes me a year (probably even more) just to change the blade of my razors.

Yeah.

✿ No More Waxing, Plucking, and Shaving

If you are as lazy as me, you would understand why I really hate the idea of shaving every now and then – especially that I have horrendous thick black hair (from over-shaving since donkey years back) and lighting-speed hair growth.

As mentioned in my previous post, there are many other benefits of Laser Hair Removal Procedure.

And this is the main reason for my decision on IPL Hair Removal Treatment.

No more waxing, plucking, and shaving.

Finally.



My Hairy Arms and Legs.

First, let’s have a look at my hideous arms and legs. Are they really able to remove all of these unsightly hairs, giving me clean tofu skin? Well, we’ll see.

Notice that my arm hairs are a lot finer because in close to 3 decades, I did waxing only once on the arms. Whereas for my legs, it was regular shaving for close to 2 decades – every few days to a week, or whenever there are occasions.







IPL Hair Removal Machine Used In Tiffiny Yang Aesthetics & Surgery

First, let me introduce you the machine so that you have a better idea on what is treating you.

The clinic uses an IPL system that incorporates an intergrated cooling tip which provides you with the most comfortable treatment. This comfortable feature cools the skin surface, minimising any discomfort and risk of tissue injury during each pulse.

By cooling the skin surface, proper amount of light energy is adjusted to penetrate and disable hair follicles without risk of harm or discomfort.





IPL Hair Removal Procedure:

On a side note, before I share with you the entire IPL Hair Removal Procedure, I just HAVE to post up these photos. They have replaced their comfort cushion with this cute little Botox bolster!





Now, let’s be back on track. I am going to share with you the entire IPL Hair Removal Procedure so that you have a better idea on what to expect during treatment.

✿ Shaving

The areas to be treated are shaved a few days prior to the laser hair removal treatment. A certain amount of hair is needed for this procedure so do not shave right before treatment. It is advised to keep the hair short so as to minimise the pain (if any) during treatment.

✿ Specially Designed Googles

Patient is required to wear special googles that are designed to filter out harmful light during the treatment.





Start of IPL Hair Removal Treatment:

✿ Cooling Gel

A cooling gel is then used on the treatment areas for more comfort. And look where she is applying on – all the way to my fingers.

Yes, I have hairs on my fingers.

Comparison of My Leg Hairs Before And After IPL Hair Removal Treatment.

The treated area may be red and rashes may occur. However, they should resolve within the next 24 hours. The treated area may also be sensitive for a short period of time. Light-based hair removal treatments may cause skin blisters or burns.

Did you see how my leg hair curls up right after treatment?

Patients are advised to avoid sun exposure and tanning 1 week before and especially after the treatment. Other than that, there is nothing to avoid.

Simple as that.


Before | THOSE HORRID HAIRS


After | Leg hairs are curled up and hair growth area is noticeably lessen




After Treatment.

Of course, it is going to take some time to see the difference – especially that I have massive hair growth. And the area of hair growth – although not with immediate effect – is noticeably lessen in just a couple days after treatment.

I can’t wait to see the results after my intensive sessions of IPL Hair Removal Treatment at Tiffiny Yang Aesthetics & Surgery :)

Keep coming back for updates :)

Beauty Talk: Benefits Of Laser Hair Removal Procedures ♡





THE BENEFITS OF LASER HAIR REMOVAL PROCEDURES

If you are considering having a laser hair removal procedure, you probably already know it would benefit you. However, you might not realise exactly how many laser hair benefits there actually are.

Let’s look at some of them :)



No More Waxing, Plucking, and Shaving

Obviously, the biggest benefit of having your unwanted hair removed with a cosmetic laser device is that you won’t have to worry about waxing, plucking, and shaving those annoying hairs away anymore. That is, of course, if you have repeated laser treatments. A single treatment won’t permanently get rid of hair, but a series of treatments might. Even if the hair does ever grow back, there shouldn’t be as much and it should take quite a while to return.






Lasers Can Treat Multiple Body Parts

Another great thing about laser hair removal is that the lasers used can treat multiple body parts. That versatility makes them perfect for almost any hair that you want to get rid of.

Some of them includes:

✿ Face
✿ Arms
✿ Legs
✿ Groin
✿ Underarms

On a side note, I have recently went for my very first laser hair removal treatment – full arms and legs, as well as underarms – at my favourite aesthetics clinic – Tiffiny Yang Aesthetics and Surgery. I will be sharing with you my personal experience and entire procedure of laser hair removal treatment in my upcoming post :)





You’ll Get More Precise Results from Lasers

We have all had those annoying times when we spent a lot of time shaving or waxing only to find out we missed a few stray hairs here and there. This can be a particular problem when we shave our legs or bikini areas. Laser hair removal procedures are much more accurate. If you have your hair removed with an aesthetic laser device, the chances of finding stray hairs after you are done are slim to none.





Lasers Can Treat Large Areas All at Once

Have you ever been in a rush to shave or wax your legs or other body parts? Did it feel like the process was taking hours? Well, laser treatments are great because they are fast, accurate, and can treat large sections of skin. Where a razor or bit of wax might cover a small section of the offending are, a laser can zap all that unwanted hair away in very short order.



You’ll Be Saving Time

Just imaging how much shaving and waxing time you’ll save by choosing to have a series of laser treatments. Each treatment will probably take an hour or two, yes. But attending a few one to two-hour sessions and having lasting results is much better than constantly waxing and shaving, right?



You Might Eventually Save Money

Finally, depending on how many laser treatments you have and how late in life you have them, you might also wind up saving money. Initially, laser treatments are quite expensive. In fact, each one can cost $1,000 or more. So, it’s easy to see how the costs associated with a series of hair removal treatments could quickly add up. Even so, over time you may save money because you won’t have to buy any shaving or waxing supplies anymore. So, having laser hair removal treatment might well be a great choice for you for that and all of the other reasons listed above.

Work Life Tips: Experience Vs. Non-Experience ♡





WORK EXPERIENCE VS. NON-EXPERIENCE

Not acquiring experience while you are a student puts you behind other candidates who did get experience.

And this is the harsh working society reality.

Let me share with you my personal experience and some tips to get yourself a head start in the working society :)



MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE

I urge for you to have experience before you officially step into the working society, and the reason is simple. You wouldn’t want to land yourself in the scenario whereby
the employer requires experience and you have none.



DIFFICULTY IN FINDING JOBS

During my school days, I was having a hard time looking for jobs. I was from LASALLE College of the Arts and I major in Graphic and Interactive Design. The working society back then – alike now – was already in high demands of fresh graduates with experience (which made me think, “how is that even possible???”) and thus I started to look for part time jobs or freelance projects while I was still in college.



However, I have tried all ways from job agencies to job search portals – to no avail. It was probably due to my weak resume (which I will touch on in my later blog post) and no working experiences. Either that, or I was just plain unlucky.

What I did back then was to look, look and look, wait, wait, and wait. And thankfully, I was fortunate to get to know friends in different fields and industries with opportunites for me to have a start off. I started taking on part time jobs introduced by them as well as occasional freelance projects to build up my design portfolio.

That was the only thing I could do back then – and I figured it was good enough.

Recently, I came across a job search portal – wished I had come across much earlier so that I wouldn’t be in such bad state then – that specialises in contractual, temporary and especially part time jobs in Singapore.

I hope this might be of help and useful to share with those that were in my position.





THE IMPORTANCE OF WORK EXPERIENCE WHEN YOU ARE STILL IN COLLEGE

From my personal experience, it is important to have part time jobs for students – even just some or little – to gain work experiences which is high demanded for most employers. Why I would say that is because during every interview or emails that I received, especially in my field, employers require to see your portfolio and I must say frankly that student portfolios, no matter how outstanding your artworks are, do not interest them, at all.

What they want is true working experiences.

During which, I am proud to showcase my awesome artworks, from genuine clients. I may not have graduated then, but having work experience – freelance projects and various part time jobs singapore experiences – definitely gives me confidence while speaking to local employers here, and that highly enhances my chances of getting the job. From there, each project that I have taken on not only strengths my portfolio, it also builds up the confidence in me as well, while I am stepping closer to the working society.

Working before you graduate illustrates to employers that you are serious about your career and appreciate the value of getting a head start. It is a good idea to get some part-time, temporary or volunteer work experience during your college years, just like me!





TIPS ON WORK EXPERIENCE OPTIONS

Now let’s be back on a serious tone.

Let me share with you some tips on getting your right working experience.

Before you set about acquiring experience – in college or after gradation – think about what skills you want to develop, what talents you want to cultivate and use, and what experiences would interest an employer. Then choose your options accordingly.

Choose positions that relate in some way to your college major, even if you have to volunteer due to the weak job market. Your education will have more meaning and both pursuits with benefit each other.

However, if you can’t find a job in your chosen field of study, any job is better than none, as long as you remain focused on your first priority.

“Succeeding in your path of study and absorbing the knowledge you’re there to gain.”



YOU ARE READY TO GO

Through the above exercise mentioned, you will learn that you already have what employers are looking for and that you will just need to package it properly in your résumé, cover letter and interview – which makes finding jobs a whole lot easier!

I hope my personal experience and these little tips I shared help you on your way to working society.

Good luck!
