I love Shunji Matsuo!

This was approximately two months ago when I had to highlight my hair for an upcoming drama in Suria. I was told by my director that I looked too decent for my character, therefore he told me to add colors to my hair. It was my first time bleaching my hair blonde and I was afraid that I looked rather… minah-ish. But thank god Fann managed to do what's best for me and accommodating to my needs at a very last minute! 

This is why I love Shunji Matsuo. Not plainly because they are my hair sponsor, but I simply love how I feel like home every time I'm at the saloon. For me, service plays an important role. You don't have to be necessary comes from a tiptop brand. Even if the cost of cutting hair is pricey but if you don't have a good customer service, I guess it means nothing to me at all. It's been more than a year since I'm engaged to Shunji Matsuo and I'm so thankful to get my hair taken care of from them! So much love for my stylist, Fann! :)

Last two Mondays, I head down to Shunji Matsuo once again to get my hair done. This time round, I did Cosme Cream Treatment. Which is also known as soft rebonding. 

My hair is actually very wavy by nature, therefore I've been doing Cosme Cream Treatment at least once every six months. I love doing soft rebonding compared to normal rebonding because it gives a natural finish! Soft and silky hair, yeay!

Yeap, notice that few aluminum foils? Fann had to cover that part due to my previous highlights. 

And a week later, I came back to change my hair color because it wasn't recommended to do a few chemical services at one go. I've been wanting to cover up the highlight back as it looked super dry and horrible! :X

If you think it's not that bad, wait till I show you a closer look..

Yes, it was really, really, horrible. My hair faded and it turned out to be some weird color.. and what's more, the outgrown black roots makes it even uglier. 

So time for a serious change of hair color! 

Told Fann that I wanted to go for a darker tone, thus.. she picked the right choice of color for me. 

Just realized that I've grown chubbier :(

And here's the final results of my hair! 

Simply love the color! My hair looks so much better now, and healthier of course! Fann never fails to disappoint me and always did her best in taking care of my hair. The trick to healthier looking hair is always.. darker tone of hair colour ;)

Thank you ICON Shunji Matsuo by Lily Xu!

Advertorial- Bottom Slim!

So, I’m back again with BottomSlim, the Pioneer in Lower Body Slimming. I was elated when they called me if I wanted to go again for the second time, and of course, I would say yes!

For those of you who didn’t managed to read on my first visit about a year ago, you could read it here.

Admit it, most of us are working everyday and we barely have time to take care of our own body. As for myself, being an actress and model isn’t easy, juggling with tight schedules. Sometimes, I hardly even get to squeeze out some time to hit the gym to exercise. What’s more with all the indulging f good food during Hari Raya visitings?! We all know that those finger-licking dishes are so hard to resist.

BottomSlim, Pioneer in Lower Body Slimming, has helped many girls boost their confidence and made them feel better about themselves by giving them a slimmer and more slender looking lower body. BottomSlim is the pioneer in lower body slimming to effectively solves these common lower body treatments:

-        Bulging Tummy
-        Wide Hip
-        Bulky Thighs
-        Chunky Calves
-        Stretch-Marks
-        Cellulite
-        Toxic & Water Retention

-        Sagging Buttocks

After which, I was brought to the consulting room to fill up a customer profile form. This is to state where my main problems are and what I’m hoping to achieve by the end of the treatment. I was then introduced to my specialist, Cyndi, to tell her what are my concerned areas. She patiently explained to me in details, including the procedures and how the treatments work.

I told her that my main concern had always been my bulging tummy and my inner thighs area. Not forgetting, my cellulite. Well, I’ve never faced any major weight problems before but hey, girls being girls? We definitely want to look good in everything, don’t we?

After which, I was brought to the treatment room. Love how BottomSlim maintain their rooms so warmly. So in love with the ambience of the room accompanied with extremely cozy dim lights.

I did 3 treatments in total. First was the Bottom Trim Therapy. This treatment helps to breakdown accumulated stubborn fats in areas that are difficult to lose. For my case, only during the treatment I realized that my stubborn fats come from my thigh areas. It also relieves water retention and shape up the body area. Not only that, I was glad to know that it smoothen lumpy areas and help to improve my overall blood circulation.

The second treatment that I did was the Signature Tummy, Hip and Thighs Trimmer. This treatment also helps to shape and trim away the unwanted bulges, increase your circulation to help in detox purposes to relieve toxics and water retention.

Lastly, the Pro Sonic treatment for Back Thighs and Butt. The device helps to break down fats into smaller pockets for easier dispersion and bulges accumulated over prolonged sitting poor posture. It also helps to improve skin texture for smoother and firmer skin. My specialist also applied cellulite gel which helps to reduce appearance of cellulites. I guess this was by far one of my favourite treatment of all because it tones and lifts sagging muscles for better definition which means.. yay to perkier butt! :p

Notice my thigh area turns a little bit reddish? I was told by Cyndi it was due to my stubborn fats that has been accumulated that makes it harder to break down.

Each treatment process was about 20 minutes each. To be honest, the first treatment was rather painful for me at the start. But, I understood from my specialist that it is due to the stubborn fats accumulated on my thigh areas that’s why it was painful – breaking down of the stubborn fats and to help in lymphatic drainage which can reduce the appearance of unsightly cellulite . However, she was very caring and constantly checking if I’m okay to continue with the process.  The second and third treatment was painless! I could barely feel anything except while spreading the cold gel around my thighs area. Lol! It was rather relaxing and therapeutic. .

I was extremely pleased and impressed with the results even after just one treatment. I didn’t lose weight immediately, but I can definitely feel that my butt is definitely more toned and firmer. Even though it wasn’t a vast difference in terms of the size of my thighs, but hey, I just went for one session, so it wasn’t that bad after all.

Honestly I’ve been quite skeptical when it comes to going for slimming treatments, as the first thought that comes to mind is that most of their Before/After photos are photoshopped. However, after experiencing it myself at BottomSlim, it actually proved me wrong. And this is the photo of their satisfied customer just after one session:


Well, If you’ve trying to shape up your tummy, legs and thighs, why not give BottomSlim a try too? I personally feel that it’s another alternative way especially for those who’re plain lazy to exercise, thus, keen in losing the stubborn fats on targeted areas. 

Thank you Cyndi for your professional service in and for always displaying sincere care and concern throughout my treatment!

I also received Nano X Plus gel & Nano Firm Gel. They help to fight against sagging and improve skin elasticity, which makes skin tighter and firmer. It also aids in hydrating, burns fatty tissues and gives youthful & healthy looking skin.
