Part 2 of 我要當歌手

Hi you! Sorry to leave you hanging for so long after my last post. While I write my next post, I shall put up what happened at the second recording. 

This is the entire episode, but should you wish to fast forward to my part, the song starts at 50:41. =D



P.S I think Ya Ni is crazy amazing.




Am very grateful for the people who supported me and who left encouraging comments on the official Facebook Page. I'm looking forward to singing on the stage again. ^^

我(還是想)要當歌手!!!

Many people have asked if I would ever go back to singing. Or years back, they would ask why I didn't go to Taiwan. It's not that easy you know. So I buy a ticket to Taiwan, and I reach Taoyuan International Airport. And THEN??? I won't immediately become a singer. And apart from hard work, it takes opportunity as well. 

So I made the decision to fly to Taiwan earlier this year thanks to the TV programme Lady First Singapore which debut on our local cable channel last June. This acquaintance, or opportunity, took long enough to reach me, but I guessed if it had reached me any earlier I might not have been ready in many aspects. I'm still not perfect; my acting skills have room for polishing; my singing is not exactly amazing because I've only just been self-teaching and finding my own way by bumping into walls; I think I can be a better host if I read more but I haven't been reading enough; and I'm still a fatty bom bom. (Stop telling me I'm not fat! I know! I just look damn chubby on TV and that's not exactly the look I am going for.)

To cut the story short, I found myself joining another singing competition 9 years after "Project Superstar". I know I have improved, and in a way, it was to prove to myself that I can now deliver on stage without stage fright. Yes I had stage fright when I was on Project Superstar. I didn't even remember how I got through each round because I was more freaked out than focussed on my singing then.

So green, and I don't just mean that tunic I was wearing.

Coincidentally, the singing competition I was going to join is also called "Superstar". =)
I was lucky in that the group which I auditioned with and who were in the PK zone with me were all awesome people, much like the PSS contestants back in 2005. ^.^

The stage I was to perform on once again.

To be honest, this stage actually freaked me out, and excited me, all at once. Because I was actually in Taiwan, and was going to sing to the Taiwanese audience on their local TV! Scared, uh huh, because I was told I couldn't hold my notes and was pitchy back in PSS days, so from then on I deemed myself a lousy singer, but excited because I knew I have improved so much...in the KTV room. Haha! With regards to whether I could deliver that on stage in front of such a big audience, well, it has never been tested since 2005, so...

The look that was done for me. Only the accessories (excl the hat) were mine. I wasn't quite sure about this look, but it showed no waist (it was bad enough to be big, but not showing I have a waist is like shooting myself in the foot). I've always had a thing against this kind of straight cut dresses - I don't think they work for me. But I gave it a go anyway, because maybe the whole look works on camera. I thought it had character, just wasn't very me. What do you think?

Seeing myself on TV wearing sleeveless really pushed me to want to lose weight again. I'm now 53kg. (Still. After so much talk about wanting to lose 5kg, and I'm still here. Oei Silver, buck up please. Tsk.) Taiwanese girls generally are between 40-47kg. Or rather, the ones you see onscreen who are about my height. Yup.

Anyway, shall shut up and work on that myself to better prepare myself for Taiwan. 我要瘦!因為我相信自己可以更好!For now, I'll let you guys have a listen at my performance on the show.

Here's the link for my first round. =)



I know right, they like to stop at those points. The result shows up in the following video. =)

MIA

Sorry I have been missing in action! I took a longer than usual break from my normal blogging to sort of, well, live life. Lol. I wasn't sure how interested you'd be in my social life so I haven't been blogging much (since going out with friends have been pretty much what I have been doing since taking a break from June to August). 

It's now September, and I've started becoming busy again. Teeny tiny bit of regret on not blogging much the past 3 months on my life updates cos I have nothing to look back on when I get older, on these 3 glorious months. *drama* Lol! 

I'm now doing a Channel 5 drama called Koji Cooks. (For the non-Singaporeans, Channel 5 is an English-speaking TV channel here.) Like the name suggests, yes, it is a show about cooking. 


It's a comedy, and I play a Kopitiam Ah Lian. This is actually kinda fun as I've never played an Ah Lian before in any of the shows I've done. Dalton asked me about the character I'm playing and I got stuck at having to describe Ah Lian to a non-local. And also at describing kopitiam. 

Try.

Had you there right! Haha! Kopitiam was slightly easier to define, though we can't directly translate it cos a "coffee shop" means something like a cafe to non-Singpaoreans/Malaysians. It's like a food court but smaller. Something like that? 

As for Ah Lian, I was like...erm..I play this girl whose parents were loansharks, and she grew up not having a lot of education but she's really street-smart and good with money and maths. That doesn't describe the lian either, it merely states what the character is. Lol. 


Meet Wendy, my character in Koji Cooks. She has bright pink nails, pink hair extensions, wears big-eye contact lens, and is sibeh chio. Okok don't puke. She has this obsession with the perfect splash paint art, probably influenced by her ah long (loanshark) father whose paint splashes are "the nicest in  Geylang East". 


Because Koji Cooks is a comedy, we have so much fun on set I'm grateful that this is "work" for me. =D

If I'm gone for too long (again) after this post, do check out my updates on Instagram okay? It's just easier to microblog in between all the things I'm doing as compared to doing actual blogging. That being said, I can say sooooo much more here and actually chat with you. (Actually chat with myself la cos I don't know if there are any more of you reading since I've been gone for so long.) I try to put up an Instagram post at least once a day so at least you can find out what's been happening with me. 


Till my next post! I'm gonna koon now cos I have a 7am call time. Nite! :*

Review: L'Oreal EVERSTRONG Sulfate Free Anti-Breakage Series

I colour my hair every 2 months, or whenever I see my black roots showing. Also, filming and events mean that I have to style my hair often, and because I have really flat hair, my hair is often crimped, curled or back-combed for volume. Having subjected my hair to so much trauma ever so often, I'm always on the lookout for hair products that help keep my hair looking healthy when I don't style it.

My hair breakage has always been a pretty bad problem especially whenever I brushed or combed my hair. Look at my dry and damaged hair ends!
 



 Wait till you see what I see after I brush my hair:
Eeeks!
Because my hair colour is quite light, here is another picture against a dark background.

See all the broken hair? They usually break towards the ends because that's where the hair is the oldest, and thus subjected to the most damage.

I was super excited when I was given the L'Oreal EVERSTRONG Sulphate-Free Fortify System Anti-Breakage range of hair products to try. Reason being:

1. Anti-breakage! This is a huge draw! 

2. I have tried other L'Oreal Sulfate-Free products, and I have to say I love each and every one of them. The fact that it's sulfate-free means I do not have to worry about my scalp having adverse reactions to it, and that my hair is not subjected to harsh ingredients.

So what are sulfates? They are what makes your shampoo lather up when you wash your hair, and they are what makes soap soapy. So what makes them so bad? Sulfates are effective in in removing oil, and have been used in all kinds of cleaning products such as facial foams, body cleansers, and even floor cleaners used in mechanic shops. For a long time, we have been associating foam with clean, and we want clean non-oily hair, right?

Sulfates, present in Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate, Ammonium Laureth Sulfate, and other variations. Some are stronger and harsher than others, but they are essentially sulfates, and I am not game enough to try each and every one out just to tell you which one is gentler, for those who still prefer the soapy clean feeling. Sulfates have been known to cause skin irritation (i.e scalp irritation) and hair follicle damage, which can lead to diminished hair growth and weakened hair structure.

Coloured hair is already weakened, and is very porous. So imagine the damage sulfates can do when they strip the hair off whatever moisture it has left. Yup, brittle, frizzy hair.
Credit: http://anti-agingonlyanumber.com
I did my research, and found that most sulfate-free shampoos do not lather as well, and thus people tend to use more in order to get the amount of lather they're used to, to achieve that squeaky-clean feeling, leading to a burn in their pockets over time. I was pleased to find that the L'Oreal EVERSTRONG shampoo, for something sulfate-free, lathers like a charm! So no damage done to my hair, NOR my bank account! =D

Did you know that there is a proper way to wash your hair to reduce damage? 

1. Wet hair completely with warm water. Shampoo will not spread as well if your hair is only semi-wet. This is particularly important when you have heavily styled hair which is harder to get wet fully. Also, warm water helps to open the hair follicles up to allow a more thorough clean.

2. Use the right amount of shampoo. Most shampoos recommend a "quarter-sized" amount, which is about the size of our old 50¢ coin. This amount is usually intended for hair of average length, which is somewhere between the chin to shoulder-length. For shorter hair, you can use slightly less, and for someone with much longer and thicker hair, you should use more. I use about a 4cm-circle amount. 

3. Massage the shampoo into your scalp with the tips of your fingers (NOT fingernails) until it lathers. 

Sulfate-free products use alternatives that allow lather to form, so lather away! Run your fingers through your hair to spread the lather evenly so that all your hair gets clean, especially if you have styled your hair that day. This is also important for lighter hair, as it tends to be more porous and can absorb dirt and chemicals from the environment. 


The L'Oreal EVERSTRONG Sulfate Free Anti-Breakage Shampoo is fortified with 360º Cuticle Care which helps to reinforce weak and fragile hair from the inside of the cuticle to the outside to prevent breakage and split ends. 

4. Repeat if necessary. I'm going to be naggy, but if you have done some kind of hairstyling for an event and have tonnes of hairspray and wax and gel on your hair, this step is necessary!

5. Rinse thoroughly with warm water. 

6. Squeeze out excess water, and then apply conditioner to the hair, avoiding the roots. 

There are too many controversies surrounding whether or not you can get conditioner on your roots, but for Singapore's weather, because we sweat and our scalp is more prone to being oily than our friends in temperate or colder and drier climates, I'll recommend not applying conditioner to your scalp. If you have dry scalp, use a product intended for scalp treatment. =) 

7. Leave in the conditioner for a couple of minutes, then rinse out completely.

8. Dry your hair gently with a towel. Do not mangle or tug and ruffle the towel through the hair! This is very damaging to the hair as hair is weakest when it is wet! This will also result in flyaways and frizziness!

9. Apply a good hair serum before you blowdry your hair. This makes your hair sleeker and minimises the friction between your hair and the brush you use, thus reducing breakage. 

The EVERSTRONG serum works wonders in protecting my hair from breakage when I brush and blowdry my hair. It comes in a dual serum pump so you are actually using 2 different types of serums at once for reinforcing weak fibres as well as to seal split ends! Good value for money, and time-efficient! 

10. Blowdry. And do it from the roots to the ends. Not the other way round. This will also cause your hair to look "chang chang", or frizzy.

11. Apply another dollop of serum to give your hair shine and seal it the cuticles further! I like how weightless the serum feels, and my hair doesn't feel oily at all after application. 

I've been using this range for about 2 weeks now, and I have to say I am very pleased with it! My hair doesn't break as easily, and it feels pretty soft and manageable. I might have been imagining it, but my hair already felt stronger after the first wash, with less breakage! Smell-wise, the range has a rosemary smell similar to the other L'Oreal Sulfate Free series. I didn't exactly like it at first, but I later got used to it and thought it smelt a little expensive, kind of like a spa. This is what people call "acquired taste"? =D

Here's what it looked like after the first wash. Which was one hour after that picture at the top. I shall post it here for easy reference.

Before 
(Ignore the colour temperature. Both pictures were unedited, and in my room sometimes the camera catches lighting warmth differently.)

One hour later.

2 weeks later. ^.^

I am bought over! This is my saviour for all the hairstyling my hair needs to endure for my work! I have a feeling I'll be using this for a while. ;)

Sponsored: EVERSOFT White High Protection Whitening Sunscreen Lotion SPF55

A couple of weeks ago, I had the honour of being invited by EVERSOFT to their Fair Skin and Sun Protection workshop, together with Yina, Jessica and Juli. I thought everyone looked really good that day! 

The topic, Fair Skin and Sun Protection, was of utmost interest to us. It's an Asian girl thing. I know many of our westerner friends can't understand why, but having clear, bright and fair skin just makes us look better. I remembered looking like an entirely different race/nationality when I was really dark as a kid. And I had people speaking to me in Bahasa. Or asking me why I looked so tired all the time. Bleah.

It's not just a young girl's thing, wanting to look fair and beautiful - the participants were in all ages! 愛美是女人一輩子的權利! All women have a right to want to be beautiful. =)

Personally I learnt a lot about whitening skincare and sun protection that day from the beauty trainer Ms Jane Yap. Can you make a guess, if your skin was not exposed to the sun, how old would your skin be before it actually starts aging?

Come, make a guess.

You'd be as shocked as we were. 

....

.......

...

.....

...

......

...

Ok I got tired of dotting and spacing and entering blanks. Lol...

The answer is: at least 60 years old. 

O.O

I had no idea what photo-aging meant until I heard that. Sun damage is really the primary factor that causes your skin to age, and those wrinkles and spots to form! (You hear that, western sun-loving friends?!?)

Personally I am a sunscreen-addict. Or a sunscreen freak, whatever you want to call me. If I go out in the day, sunny or not, I must apply sunscreen. This habit started when I was flying as a stewardess, when I had all those seniors who were beauty and skincare gurus. (You have no idea how much stewards and stewardesses are into skincare!) I have even started to end off my morning skincare routine with sunscreen, whether I head out or not, because certain UV rays actually penetrate through glass and get to you via your windows. 

I didn't use to like sunscreens. The ones I knew about when I was much younger were called "sunblock". They were thick, left a white gooey film on my skin and somehow certain ingredients gave me rashes and made me itchy. Thus going to the beach with "sunblock" on meant a lot of scratching, which removed the application via my nails anyway and deemed having sunblock on pointless. They were also a pain to wash off. 

Thank goodness modern day sunblocks and sunscreens do a much better job now. They feel lighter on the skin, and most importantly do not make me itch like the old sunblocks do. 

Some background about sunblocks and sunscreens - 
Sunblocks use ingredients which reflect sun rays and block them from penetrating the skin.

The active ingredients in sunblock are usually titanium oxide or zinc oxide, which gives them a thicker opaque consistency, which is the white film left behind. They also use a heavier carrier oil to resist being washed off. Sunscreens utilise ingredients which absorb harmful UV rays before they penetrate your skin. Some people are allergic to certain ingredients, and may decide to use pure sunblock instead of sunscreen. 

These days different companies name their sunscreens and sunblock interchangeably, and most sunscreens now are a combination of both, so do check the ingredients label if you have a sensitivity to certain chemicals. I still do not know what it was that made me itch even though I was using what the company named a "sunblock". So I'm always experimenting. 

When EVERSOFT told me they have launched a new sunscreen in their EVERSOFT White Skincare line, it's immediately on my need-to-try list.

The new EVERSOFT White High Protection Whitening Sunscreen Lotion SPF 55.

I like how small it is. This would be handy to carry around in my handbag or my tote when I'm out. It is usually recommended that we reapply sunscreen every 2 hours for maximum protection against UV rays. I understand that once we have makeup on it's hard to reapply, but on the days when we decide not to apply makeup (eg. when out hiking/going to the market/bringing the kids to Bt Timah hill/ cycling), this is really handy. It's also great for students without adding much weight to their bags! 

Tip: Educate your kids about the importance of sunscreen and start them on the habit of applying. 80% of sun damage occurs by the time we hit our 20s because kids spend so much time outdoors and in the sun! They'll thank you for it when they grow older.

Something about SPF:
SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor, and is a measure of how long a sunscreen remains effective on the skin. The effectiveness of the sunblock is determined by the amount of time it takes for someone to suffer a sunburn, multiplied by the SPF factor. For example, you usually take 10 minutes to develop a sunburn when not wearing sunblock. By applying a sunscreen with an SPF of 55, it'll prevent sunburn for up to 550 minutes, which is around 9 hours!

It is a consolation for us girls who apply sunscreen followed by makeup and find it almost impossible to reapply later in the day, even if your SPF50 sunscreen can only protect you for 6 hours. Because we know that our crazy tropical sunlight is strongest between 10am-2pm. So even if you leave the house for work at 8, you are moderately well-protected. =)

That is of course theory. While a high SPF is great for preventing sunburn, it is not good enough. Invisible skin damage and photo-aging can happen in skin cells which are deeper when UVA rays hit, and you won't be able to see any redness or feel any pain. UVA is also responsible for causing DNA damage to cells, which may lead to skin cancer.

Now you see that the EVERSOFT White sunscreen states that it provides "long lasting protection against UVA and UVB rays". What does that mean?

UVB rays are rays which are responsible for sunburn, so a high SPF sunscreen is great for preventing this type of rays to create damage to your skin. 

Always go for sunscreens with at least SPF 15 for adequate protection! 

UVB is also the main cause of most skin cancers. UVA can contribute to this, but UVB is the main culprit. UVB- B for BURNS and Bye Bye Life. I may sound morbid, but yes, just so you remember. 

UVA rays are Ultraviolet A rays, which are present all year round, regardless of weather or season. If you think you are protected indoors on a gloomy winter's day, you are wrong. They penetrate glass and even certain clothing, so yup, it doesn't matter if your car windows are black, or if your home windows are frosted. Think of UVA rays as a tikopeh who has access to you without you knowing it. O.O

Source: lorealparis.com.au
UVA rays causes your skin to turn dark. A tan results from injury to the skin's DNA. Ever heard that fairer skin is more prone to skin cancer than darker skin? The skin develops a tan as a natural attempt to prevent further DNA damage, but this tanning process is a skin cell mutation, which can cause skin cancer. 

UVA also causes signs of aging. They penetrate deeper into the skin and may cause irreversible damage. Think pigmentation, wrinkles, and thick leathery skin. Yup, that's UVA - A for AGING.

Source: iamtarabuck.com

For our EVERSOFT Whitening suncreen:

SPF factor - thumbs up.
Broad spectrum protection against UVA & UVB rays - check.
Now scroll up and look at the bottle again. What is PA++? 

PA stands for Protection Grade of UVA rays, and is a measurement started in Japan to gauge how efficient a sunscreen is against UVA rays, and is based on another Japanese method of measuring UVA protection called PPD - Persistent Pigment Darkening. A PPD rating of 10 would means that it takes 10 times as much UVA exposure to cause damage. You know how Japan is all about anti-aging right? You may not be able to find this on American or European products. The following is a guide:


So a sunscreen with PA+ provides UVA protection of between 2-4, PA++ for between 4-8 and PA+++ for 8 and above. Generally a sunscreen with at least PA++ provides adequate protection against UVA rays. 

Conclusion: The EVERSOFT White High Protection Whitening Sunscreen Lotion SPF55 (yes it's a mouthful lol) passed the sun/UV protection tests with flying colours!

Most sunscreens only work to protect against UV rays, but the EVERSOFT White High Protection Whitening Sunscreen Lotion SPF55 has an added bonus: it whitens as it protects! 


This sunscreen is enriched with their breakthrough formulation - the Radiant Gene Activator, or RGA, which is a blend of Sakura Extract and Lipo Vitamin C which activates lightening at the heart of your skin cells, resulting in fairer, suppler and more radiant skin! You can read more about how they work here.

Now for the application. 
It's a white watery lotion. 

See how easily it spreads? It doesn't feel gooey or anything, like any normal lotion.

And it leaves no white cast! You'll feel a layer of something on your skin immediately after application. I was told this is sort of like an emollient film which locks the protect on the skin, but I touched my skin 2 minutes later and I couldn't feel anything. So I can say that it dries clear and leaves no sticky or oily feeling. Me likey!

Here's a picture of me with the whole EVERSOFT White series on my face. Well almost. Lol. I used the facial foam, toner, serum, day cream, the sunscreen which I've been talking about, and their BB cream. Of course I added some light makeup to give me a little bit of colour. What do you think?

No white cast right? And I thought the BB cream gave me pretty decent coverage as well. ^.^

So our role at the event was to share how to take good selfies. Yes we are narcissistic. Nothing wrong with a bit of self-love and flaunting good skin when you have it, right? ;)
 

We take good we-fies too! Lol!


You can scroll right down to the bottom of the post if you are not interested in my face, because it's going to be selfies galore from here...

2nd Visit to Tokyo Bust!

Girls, admit it, we all want firmer, perkier, fuller and rounder boobs. At least I know I do. I'm sure you've seen those thin girls at the beach in their bikinis with super round perky breasts and thought to yourself "Those must be fake."

Because I thought the same! Lol Sway yarn leh us (cantonese for jinx). Honestly! Because bikinis don't have much support, even if you are wearing a Victoria's Secret bikini with padding it won't push your boobs up to make them look SO full (because I own a few of those, that's how I know). 

Conclusion: must be fake. 

I was given a surprise when I visited Tokyo Bust again to try out their other treatments. The previous time I tried one to lift up my boobs cos apparently they were sagging (FML at my age???) and it worked wonders la! This time round the specialist assessed my assets again and told me I needed to firm up some more and make it fuller. So we were on the topic of full perky breasts and she told me our breasts were made up of mammary glands, collagen and fats. 

So the size of your breasts depends on how much fat you have there since it's mostly fats right?

Uh uh.

Well, yes to a certain extent, but the perkiness...that is affected by the size of your mammary glands. 


That's the specialist doing the explanation.

So I was told that we have about 15-20 mammary glands on each side of our breasts. What differentiates our boob sizes are the size of each mammary gland. Some could be as small as a peanut.... while the big ones could be as big as a grape. Or a marble. Imagine 20 grapes in each boob. If you have that I am sure you will not complain of being flat-chested. So what causes mammary glands to be big or small? If you have been fed proper nutrients during puberty chances of you being well-rounded in that aspect is high. I'm sure you've heard of Hong Kong women and papaya milk! And then there are the Japanese and their soy... #mummywhyyouneverteachmeallthese


Fwahhhhh~~~

Also, growing up, how you have been wearing your bra makes a difference. Because fats is also a big component of boobs, if you knew since you were little to grab all your side fats and tuck them into your bra, chances are, you'd have perkier assets than those of us who did not know that. Ever heard of this term called 副乳?Also known as the accessory breast, supernumerary breast, mamma accesoria, or "mini boobs", it's the fats that roll up under your armpits when you wear a tight tube top – those are part of your breasts too, believe it or not.

And if you have been fat and lost weight, chances are the fats on your chest would have been lost as well. Compare that with a thin girl whose boobs developed normally during puberty and who has never tried to lose a lot of weight. Yours would most likely be less perky because it has lost some of its content.

BUT it's okay. All is not lost because *eyes wide open* there is hope!!! And I don't mean implants or fat grafts from other parts of your body ok. Of course you can opt for that, but there is a non-invasive way to firm and plump up your breasts! Ai mai?

Anyway, so I was listening intently on all the things she was telling me about the breast structure that I never knew (I studied Anatomy and Physiology as a module for a year back in school), and I wondered why wasn't this covered in more detail during my classes. I blame my Anatomy teacher for my now-not-perky (I refuse to use the word “droopy”) boobs. And I am grateful that I have the chance to learn about this now before gravity takes over in 20 years and they sag beyond recognition.


Anyway, since I don't have the ideal boobs, when Tokyo Bust Express invited me for a second review I jumped at the chance. They are the leading natural bust enhancement specialist with the most outlets islandwide. An award winning specialist with 7 years of experience, and loads of good reviews from their customers, I know my boobs will be in good hands, again. (They should open classes for men to go learn about their massages. Lol!)


This time round, the outlet I visited was at Park Mall. It's upstairs with some offices and other beauty spas, not in the main shopping area, so if you're shy and don't like people seeing you walk into a bust centre, this is a good outlet to consider. =D

Apart from learning about mammary glands and the structure of breasts, I was told that the treatments use 100% natural ingredients such as soy-infused treatments combined with advanced technology and traditional Japanese massage techniques. Basically soy contains phyto-nutrients which stimulate female hormones and aid in optimal bust development. Now you understand why many Japanese women are well-endowed? Dayum~~~

Also, their bust treatments, apart from letting you be more physically attractive i.e. Sexy, they can also help to improve your health by boosting circulation and helping with lymphatic drainage. I feel that a healthy pair of bust are as important as a sexy round pair. OO

After stripping and letting the specialist examine and handle my bust, I was prescribed a number of treatments which will go hand-in-hand to give optimal results. For me that means a perkier pair of bust which can be closer friends with each other.


To give you a better picture let me take you through my treatments. (Neh neh, I'm not going to show you my boobies, but I will try as best as I can to be visual with my descriptives ok? Lol!)

Getting ready.

I was given a heavenly shoulder massage before my treatments began, and boy, did that help relax me and put me in that “come do whatever you want to me” mood. And then my robe was peeled open and we began my bosom pampering...



Firming Scrub: A scrub was used on my boobs to exfoliate dead skin cells for better penetration of the products later on.



TT Push Up Therapy with Application of Toning Essence: This is a type of bust massage which helps in toning and lifting. This was so comfortable I almost dozed off, after getting used to the fact that someone was manhandling my boobs.


Okina C Therapy: This was also a massage, but with the aid of a machine which uses microcurrents to stimulate blood circulation and increase the absorption and penetration rate of the products used. Even though it uses micro-currents, I didn't really feel anything except a roller-like thing going round and round my bosom.


Taka Meru Mask: This is interesting. You know about facial masks right? But have you ever applied a mask on your bust? I was wrapped in a cloth which acts like a push up bra, except that my bust were exposed. Then a kind of lotion was applied on them, and I was left to sleep in the room, before the specialist came in again about 20-30 minutes and applied a whitish mask across my bosom.

Of course a cellophane wrap was placed over so that I could cover myself up in the blanket and sleep. When I woke, I noticed that my breasts were hard. Not like aroused hard, but HARD hard. So I took a peek and was amused to find that the mask had hardened and taken the shape of my pushed up boobs.

How cool is that??? Lol yes I was clearly amazed. 

After this was removed, I was pretty happy to find that my breasts felt firmer and my skin at the bosom area much more hydrated. Apparently this uniquely-formulated mask helps in reshaping our assets to make them rounder and perkier with a fuller contour. It also gives our bust a moisture surge so they are soft and supple. Thumbs up!


Overall result? Slightly perkier and firmer breasts. After just one session?! And I did not have to endure anything painful or extreme, just comfy massages and a breast mask! How they always manage to do it is beyond my understanding. I just know they work. Imagine if I come often! ;) 

I was given these 2 precious gems to bring home. The Intensive Bust Enhancement Firming Cream Serum helps to tighten the skin around your bust, preserve suppleness and provide hydration, whilst the Bust Essence helps to firm, lift, and volumize. The good thing is, you can pump both of these onto your palm and massage into your breasts at the same time! Great for lazybusy women! Use them in between your treatment sessions so your breasts still get TLC at home!

If you are looking to enhance your curves the natural way, I highly recommend you pay Tokyo Bust a visit! Because they are not just about making your curves more sexy, they actually care about your bust health the way we should ourselves. =D
