I was getting fed up of shaving my underarms every few days and I don’t even wanna think of other hair removal methods like tweezing or epilating.
So, I made an appointment with Datsumo Labo @ POMO for 08/04, seeing how there’s a direct bus service from my office.
I forgot the name of the lady who attended to me…she was friendly enough but I felt she was hardselling a bit too much. That kinda turned me off, I told her I only wanted to give it a try first since this was my first experience. So I only signed up for 6 sessions of underarm. Total package costs $205, quite affordable especially after the 10% discount.
Their place was very simple, almost to the point of sparse but it was not a big issue. The procedure was simple enough, apply the gel, zap zap zap, place cooling pads and rest. Felt super awkward there airing my armpits. LOL. It wasn’t painful at all, just very warm. If it’s too warm, you can inform them and they can adjust the intensity.
It’s been 2 weeks since and I’ve seen slower growth of hair, so hopefully the results will be good at the end of 6 sessions!
So, although the place and people is pleasant enough, I don’t think I will be going back to them for other areas. I’ve more positive first hand accounts from Christina about Musee so my next option will be them for my legs, back and upper lip! Hope their pricing and service is better. =)
Sprained my ankle a week before Phuket, I thought I’d give it a few days to recover before I leave for Phuket but it wasn’t recovering…so went down to Kovan to see a Chinese physician.
Errr, the uncle didn’t do anything to my ankle besides warming it, applying a thick black medicine and bandaging it. O.O $40 gone just like that.
Mr Toh asked if the uncle did any massage for my ankle, when I said no, he shook his head. As expected, my ankle did not recover. But it was still tolerable during my trip in Phuket. The massages helped too. xD
We got back in Singapore on 28/04 at around 11pm plus, the next day we went for Thai food again with Mummy.
We went back to Sakon Thai but I find their food standard has dropped a lot. Probably won’t be going back again le.
Happened to pass by a TCM clinic and wanted to try to heal my ankle again.
What I didn’t count on is the physician is quite young and very very funny! Very long winded also but very nice and patient.
He did some tui na on my ankle and it hurt like a bitch. T_T Applied some thick black medicine as well (why is it always black?) and bandaged it for me. $35 only! Even including the tuina and he must have spent more than half an hour because he was also busy talking to Mr Toh and my mum. Lol.
Ankle felt no pain already after the session. Highly recommended!

Long overdue meet up with Chris on 03/04 for dinner. We went to Itacho sushi! So good to see her after so long.
It’s Qing Ming again, time passes so fast. This year, Mr Toh was off on Sat 05/04 and so, we prayed at home, then headed to Bright Hill to meet up with his dad and brothers to pray to his mom.
Caught Noah in the evening with his brothers.
From the inspirational story of courage, sacrifice, hope and redemption, Darren Aronofsky (“Black Swan,” “The Wrestler,” “The Fountain”) brings to the screen “Noah.”
Academy Award® winner Russell Crowe portrays the man chosen by God to undertake a momentous mission of rescue before an apocalyptic flood destroys the world.
Never before has the full story been brought to life on screen in a vivid epic – inviting the audience to experience these spectacular events through the eyes and emotions of Noah and his family, as they journey through fear and faith, destruction and triumph, hardship and hope.
Hmmmmmmmmmmmm. The movie was so so only..not a favourite of mine though I do love Russell Crowe’s acting.
Sunday, we went tomb sweeping for my daddy, just our family as Mr Toh has to work. I bought cigarettes, beer, liquor and a massage chair for him this year! Hahahah, hope he likes them. Next year I will buy a car and yacht!
After that, bro brought us to eat abalone noodles and salt baked
chicken. His treat! Woo!
Met Mr Toh for dinner on Monday after work~ My favourite ichiban boshi!
Tried something different today~
Caught 2 more movies with Mr Toh.
After the cataclysmic events in New York with The Avengers, Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” finds Steve Rogers, a.k.a. Captain America, living quietly in Washington, D.C. and trying to adjust to the modern world. But when a S.H.I.E.L.D. colleague comes under attack, Steve becomes embroiled in a web of intrigue that threatens to put the world at risk. Joining forces with the Black Widow, Captain America struggles to expose the ever-widening conspiracy while fighting off professional assassins sent to silence him at every turn. When the full scope of the villainous plot is revealed, Captain America and the Black Widow enlist the help of a new ally, the Falcon. However, they soon find themselves up against an unexpected and formidable enemy—the Winter Soldier.
This was nice! Loved the storyline twist and of course, the handsome Chris Evans.
Then we caught another movie on Thurs 10/04, running out of movies to watch, so we caught a Chinese one. It turned out to be a good choice!
Detective Johnny Du (Wong Cho Lam) was smart and agile but his short height has hindered him from joining the G4 protection detail for the HK Chief Executive. His sassy girl friend bullied him all the time, leaving him depressed at work and at home. His helplessness attracted Vincent, the devil Prince (Chapman To) and Jim, the Angel to fight for his soul.
Super funny show!! Love how hilarious Chapman To is. Very entertained and stress reliving. Hehe.
Can’t wait to watch Ice Man too!
Finished reading the Divergent series and I must say I’m not a fan of the writer….
Am currently on the 3rd book of the Hunger Games series, Mockingjay, I’m so hooked on it!
Also have books 1 – 5 of the Game of Thrones series, wonder if they’re nice to read. Been so hooked on the TV series lately. Yes, I know I’m super slow but at least I’m watching them now!
Had Szechuan food for dinner with Mr Toh on 12/03~ Tried out a restaurant that was on the left side of the Chinatown MRT exit.
The food turned out pretty good. Just don’t order their 梅菜扣肉 (Braised pork with preserved vegetables).
Pork slice in garlic and chili oil. This was hands down the best item! The garlic was sooo fragrant! And the pork slices were fresh with no smelly porky smell. =X
Rest of the food was pretty blah so no pictures.
Sis came back from Hong Kong on 12/03 and bought back lots of stuff.
Umm..a bit of useful info but it actually turns out they were mainly promoting their system. *sigh*
At least the food was good. =X
Boss came back from Taiwan and bought back lots of nonsense!!
He also bought back coffee knowing we love coffee here in the office.
It comes with its own filter. But I felt the coffee taste wasn’t very strong. Maybe we didn’t know how to use the thing correctly so the water was only passing through the filter for a few seconds.
Met Mr Toh at Serangoon Nex for dinner and movie~~ Pak-tor time!
Dinner at Hot Tomato. Food was ok, not bad lah, pretty value for money. Service was prompt but nothing to shout about. Cashier was very friendly though.
Caught Divergent after the meal.
Set in a futuristic dystopia where society is divided into five factions that each represent a different virtue, teenagers have to decide if they want to stay in their faction or switch to another – for the rest of their lives. Tris Prior makes a choice that surprises everyone. Then Tris and her fellow faction-members have to live through a highly competitive initiation process to live out the choice they have made. They must undergo extreme physical and intense psychological tests, that transform them all. But Tris has a secret that she is Divergent, which means she doesn’t fit into any one group. If anyone knew, it would mean a certain death. As she discovers a growing conflict that threatens to unravel her seemingly perfect society, this secret might help her save the people she loves… or it might destroy her.
I’ve never read the books before this so I had no idea what the movie was about. But the trailer looked nice. The movie turned out to be great! Action packed and I really liked the male lead, Theo James. He’s sooo cute! Kinda looks like James Franco and Paul Walker at certain angles.
I didn’t recognise the female lead. I thought she was really pretty though, even prettier as the movie progresses. She was also pretty good. Hope to see her on the big screen more!
So. I finally have a new phone! Mr Toh met with his friends on Sunday night. He told me they were going to a friend’s shop to see handphones and he was also thinking of buying one to replace his old HTC phone.
When they were looking at the phones, he sent me a photo of the phone.
He was eyeing it as it was very slim and not too big. The phone looked red in the photo so I thought it was still ok for him. He sent me another photo. This time, I could see the phone was really pink. It even came with a pink case.
I told him that the phone was damn chio!!! He called me later to tell me that he had bought another model as the one he wanted didn’t have stock in other colors.
Later on, I went to sleep and when I woke up in the morning, I saw a phone beside my pillow. My first thought was that Mr Toh put his new phone beside me for me to see when I wake up.
So, I went to wash up and get ready for the course. Just when I finished preparing, Mr Toh woke up and asked me if I saw the phone beside me. I said, “Yah, your new phone right?”
He asked again if I saw the phone clearly.
I then picked it up and saw that it was the pink phone.
I went O.O and asked him, “You ok with the pinkness? But, wa, it’s really pink.”
Then came my favourite part of the whole conversation.
He said, “又不是我拿.”
Me: Then 谁拿?
After a few seconds, it dawned on me. It was for me! LOL. A bit slow but it was so early in the morning lah!
We then went for breakfast together before I cabbed down to Bukit Merah for the course.
During breakfast, he was telling me about the phone buying process. He actually never thought of buying a phone for me but when he saw this pink phone, he thought about how I was complaining about my S2.
When he knew the phone only costs $200, he decided to buy it for me. Awwww…so touched! And very very pleasantly surprised. Thank you so much my love. =*
The phone is absolutely gorgeous. Display is very nice.
Screen size: 5” Super AMOLED Plus 1920*1080 screen
CPU:MT6592 Octa Core (Can you believe the price for Octa Core??)
Pinkkkkk. I love it.
Pink phone case! Samsung style. So nice.
How slim the phone is. It is really slim in real life, slightly bulkier after adding the case but still so slim!
China phones are really value for money, it comes with a screen protector already pasted on the phone plus 2 spare screen protectors and a spare battery and earphones. Wow.
I love my husband and my new phone! Feels damn good to have a new phone, it’s been so long since I’ve had this feeling. Woohoo~~
Been taking Lifepak for 2 weeks now…and I can significantly see an improvement! Taking it because of Mr Toh who recommended it to me.
4 capsules. T_T I dreaded taking it initally because I hate to take pills. But surprisingly, I find them rather easy to swallow.
It’s only been a while but I no longer feel so lethargic during work, especially after lunch, even when I’ve eaten a heavy lunch of chicken rice.
I can’t wait to see more of its effects. Better skin, better hair pls! Pls also improve my dry cracked heels! Mr Toh said it was really effective for his mummy.
Met Mr Toh at Tampines yesterday after he reported back at camp. Went for dinner at Mos and their Red Grilled Chicken burger sucks……….the meat was so tough and tasteless. Regretted not ordering my usual fish burger! =(
Was sulking about it to Mr Toh and he asked what else I wanted to eat. Bought Paris Baguette royal pudding home to eat in the end! Love Mr Toh for always indulging me~~ Hehe.
Wanted to lose a little weight and tone my body and I found out about this T25 workout. Initially wanted to try the Insanity workout but I find it hard to squeeze 1 hr out every day. 25 minutes is much more manageable.
Been doing it for 2 days previously and my whole body was so sore, especially my calves! T_T But it’s a super good workout. It may only be 25 minutes, but it is insane how much I sweat after it! Damn shiok!
I hope to persevere and get a decent body before we go Phuket at the end of the month!!
Baked potato wedges for dinner on Sunday after my workout. Just need salt, pepper and minced garlic and bake for 30 minutes (turn over halfway at 20 mins).
And ta-daaaa~! Looks good right?~ Tastes pretty good too if I may say so myself. xD
So. I finally brought Mr Toh to try 49 Seats.
I think, one should never have too high expectations about anything, be it food or people.
We topped up $4.90 to add a soup and drink.
The soup was awesome but we had no idea what it was until we asked the staff. Mr Toh guessed it was potato soup but it was actually carrot soup!
Actually, even before he ate it, Mr Toh HATED the food….because of the metal plates. Says it reminded him of army life. LOL. =X
Tasted it and my first thought was….”why so salty?”. But as I ate more, I was rather confused. I didn’t know if I liked it or not. ?.?
The seafood was fresh though.
Hmmm…..I think that there was nothing much to rave about actually. I don’t know why it’s so popular, almost every blog post about 49seats was raving about them…maybe it’s just us. *shrugs*
Only redeeming facts were that there was no GST and service charge plus the absolutely yummy carrot soup.
Selfie time!! I love my new specs from Furla.
Just look at the difference in quality. Tsk…
Brought Mummy to Nakhon for dinner on 01/03~~ The boss still so handsome and much fitter this time. Funny how he changes every time we go. LOL.
We didn’t order much though. I did ask Mummy if she wanted to add a chicken dish but she was afraid it’d be too much. End up kinda not enough for her. LOL.
Also tabao-ed dinner for Mr Toh and his colleagues. Silly boy was so happy when I asked if he wanted anything from Nakhon. Hahaha~
Going on leave tomorrow~~ It’s a happy occasion!!
I had an awesome Valentine’s Day this year. =D
I posted a Valentine’s Day photo and message on Facebook to Mr Toh for him to see. He usually does not reply to stuffs like these hence I was super surprised to see that he replied me in the afternoon.
It may be a small thing to most but to be honest, stuff like these makes me happy knowing that he thought of me and made the effort to reply when he usually does not. Love you!
I was supposed to go to Grandpa’s house after work as their family was celebrating the 15th day of CNY together. Called him as I was walking to the bus stop, as usual, when he asked if I wanted to find him at his shop before going to Grandpa’s house.
My first thought was “Flowers?” but I didn’t say anything and told myself not to think so much also. No expectations = no disappointment.
When I reached his shop, he was busy with paperwork so I waited for him. Once he was done, we chatted a bit and he suddenly said, “我有买花给你.”
I was like, O.O “真的吗? 你有买花给我?”
And he brought out the flowers from behind the counter.
Awwww…my favourite tulips! Such a gorgeous gorgeous shade!
What I posted on FB:
Gorgeous blooms. This surprise put a big smile on my face. I admit. I love tulips. I can’t justify spending too much on a bouquet for Vday so Mr Toh sourced for a more reasonably priced bouquet. Mr Toh asked me to find him at his workplace after I knocked off. Am I BHB if I say I suspected flowers? But told myself not to think so much. :X However I was pleasantly surprised when he said, “我有买花给你。” Awwww…so touched! Am a super happy girl this Vday. Thank you my love.
I couldn’t stop smiling. =X Heehee. Very glad that he was sensible and did not buy a $100 bouquet. This only costed $50. And for tulips on Vday, I find it very very reasonable! xD
Took super many photos of it over the next 2 days~~
Happy that Mr Toh had off on 15/02 Saturday so we could go for a Saturdate!
I woke up really early to finish up Mr Toh’s Vday card. I had the idea during the week to do a pop up card. And since we were playing WoW again, I really wanted to do a WoW themed card.
Since I was also the healer in the guild, I thought of telling Mr Toh that I’ll be his healer forever regardless of what game we were playing. Heehee. It helps that I like to play healers!
Cover page. Trying to be humorous. Though I should have added “a lot.” LOL.
The 2 hearts are paper doilies I bought for $2 from Daiso! Good buy huh! Haha~~ The wordings were supplies I got from Huiyi~ She has lots of materials for scrapbooking and those were perfect.
Inside of the card. I used our own characters! Print screen, then printed and cut them out.
“I’ll forever be your healer”
Left the card on Mr Toh’s keyboard and went to wake him up after I did some dungeons.
When he saw the card, he said something like “我也有礼物啊?＂
He laughed after seeing the card. Muahahaha!
Once he saw the phrase “I’ll forever be your healer”, the 1st thing he said was, “Forever be my healer? 你说的hor. PVP?” LOL. Bth…~~
Am really glad he likes the card. He thanked me and again when I was going to bed. Aww… *touched* *muacks*
We didn’t really go anywhere special, just had our favourite sushi.
Selfie time while otw. Thank you Mr Toh for indulging me. =*
Itacho Sushi @ Plaza Singapura. Ordered quite a lot and I tried their salmon sashimi on Mr Toh’s assurance that it is very fresh.
And it is really fresh!! Texture was awesome, not slimy like the ones from Sakae Sushi I tried many years ago. This was very similar to the one I tried in Hokkaido!! Just lose by a bit only! Damn nice!!
Mr Toh said he purposely chose the fattiest slice for me to try and asked if I got taste any fragrance/sweetness from the salmon.
Um, to be honest, no.
He said “我选最肥的给你try, 你跟我讲没有香味. 我要跳楼!”
Sadly, Mr Toh said the fatty salmon sushi was not that good, not very fresh. He ordered the tuna sushi to try but realised that he really does not like the taste. Grilled pork was good this time. Unagi taste was good and quite a thick slice, but the meat was kinda old. My crabstick sushi was awesome.
The pork don was quite spicy but shiok! I love my salmon belly as usual but there were so many bones, I was afraid of swallowing it. We super love the clams here~~! I love the butter flavour.
Had an awesome satisfying meal. =)
Went to Dad’s house to meet up with his brothers as we’re catching a movie later that night! Wee~~
Marcus Luttrell, a Navy Seal, and his team set out on a mission to capture or kill notorious al Qaeda leader Ahmad Shahd, in late June 2005. After running into mountain herders and capturing them, they were left with no choice but to follow their rules of engagement or be imprisoned. Now Marcus and his team are left to fight for their lives in one of the most valiant efforts of modern warfare.
Had no idea what this movie was about but I liked it. I was very into it and was very kan cheong throughout the movie! Love how graphic the movie was, very violent but entertaining. =X
Wanted to have Ah Seah porridge for supper but it was closed. T_T So we cabbed back to the coffeeshop near Dad’s place for dinner. 阿姨 treated us to zi char, though the sotong was a tad undercooked, the rest of the dishes were good.
Sunday was housework day. Had to clear my backlog. Lol. WoW-ed then napped and waited for Mr Toh to come home to help me complete my quest. Haha. My healer’s DPS sucks balls. Hai.
Mr Toh’s off again today. Wonder if he wants to go for spaghetti or ramen. Hmm. Hungry now just thinking about it.
