Kiehl's HONEY I SHRUNK MY PORES!!!!!!!!


Brought this Kiehl's RARE EARTH Deep Pore Cleansing Masque to my friend's house to do together this afternoon! 

Kiehl's Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque

Intensively Purifies to Minimize
Pores with Amazonian White Clay

The same purifying masque Kiehl's customers know and love, now with intensified Amazonian White Clay
to help to purify skin. Skin feels wonderfully smooth, incredibly clean.

when u open... it looks like this.. in a nice clean grey colour..
and it contains the Amazonian White Clay

 Take a look at this video on how to use it!


it may be used for normal to oily skin types to help eliminate debris and dead surface skin-cell accumulation that can clog pores and leave skin dull-looking. With ingredients sourced from the Marajo Island at the mouth of the Amazon River, this unique formula is rich in minerals and helps eliminate surface toxins from skin. This DEEP cleansing masque helps to purify skin, leaving the appearance of pores minimized and skin refined! :)

Take a look at the pictures i took today!


These photos are taken with my New camera, CASIO EXILIM EX-ZR20.
This picture above is taken with the Premium Auto PRO function.

likewise for this above and below pictures... they are taken with Premium Auto PRO function which the best settings would be selected by the camera itself automatically depending on the surrounding and everything.

Can you see the letter 'K' on my cheek?

'A' for apple.

'K' for Kiehl's!

Its always best to do it with a buddy!
Here.. introducing my buddy.. also my gym buddy, Kelvin!

I had him tried on the Kiehl's RARE EARTH Deep Pore Cleansing Masque.

The first thing he commented was... "Its a bit hot!"
Yes... after you applied on your face... u will find it a bit hot on your face. But that is GOOD!
And its normal! :)


my buddy posing a shot of himself flexing his well-trained BI-CEP!

Look at the picture below!

Isn't this picture cool with the Toy Camera effect?

I've got a New Camera - CASIO EXILIM EX-ZR20!

This will be my New Toy! 
Just because its SMALL and SLIM, I can bring it around anywhere, EVERYWHERE!

As a freelance blogger.. i attend events & functions which requires me to take many nice photos...
and this High-Speed compact camera would definitely serve me good! 

1.  Its small...easy for me bring around and yet able to capture very nice photos!
2. Its High-Speed technology allows me to capture every moment without waiting for the current photo to be processed.
3. Its Best Shot function allows me to take the photos in a different angle.
(Shall show it to u in the later part)

 1.4-second start up time
0.13-second high speed AF
0.015-second shutter release time lag
 0.26-second shooting interval  (This proves the High-Speed!)

8x Optical Zoom

Take Photo Faster than Ever!
The 0.26-second shooting interval has realized an amazingly high-speed responsiveness. You can press the shutter button for your next shot with no pause after shooting. You never have to miss an unexpected shooting opportunity.

This is one thing that i definitely must show and share with you guys How the EXILIM HS Engine works!
There are TWO processors... CPU 1 and CPU2. When the CPU 1 is processing the photo that you've just taken, the CPU 2 is ready for you to shoot the next photo. After you've shoot the second photo, CPU 1 is as fast as 0.26sec ready for you to shoot the next photo.
It is that FAST!

This is Best Shot (BS) function with various effects for you to choose from...
to name a few.. they Toy Camera, Miniature, Soft Focus and Blurred Background.
Shown above is the HDR Art selected.

Now let me show some of the pictures i've taken with this camera!
 I've taken one of my hand-made car models for a photoshoot!

The Nissan Z350
 
 Taken with Premium Auto PRO function which the best settings would be selected by the camera itself automatically depending on the surrounding and everything.
This will be quite standard. Its best to use during daylight or when the surrounding is bright. :)

 This is taken with the Best Shot function using POP effect. :)

 Best Shot function with Soft Focus effect.

Best Shot function with Toy Camera effect.
Quite nice too right?

Best Shot function with HDR Art effect!
The HDR Art can be set to different levels for how Art you want it to be...
Above picture was captured in a Low HDR Art effect.

This was taken with a Medium HDR Art effect.

And this... is the HIGH HDR Art Effect.
It looks quite different but somehow it looks nice too! Isn't it?


Photo of an estate!

Had a dinner w my gf at Bugis TCC and i took these pictures.. :)

The sky supposed to be darker but the picture came out to be much brighter and its nice!
Taken using Best Shot function with Soft Focus effect!

Baby Crayfish Spaghetti

Best Shot function with Food effect!
Yes. I tried the Food Effect... its amazingly nice! :)

Taken with Premium Auto PRO function.

Here i end off with my baby with the CASIO EXILIM EX-ZR20.
There's definitely MORE to explore with this camera! Its getting more EXCITING and I'll continue to use it, take more photos and share it with you guys here~!

It's just the beginning!

SAME ACCIDENT SPOT!!! But this time not Ferrari but Lexus!!!


WHATTTT!!!
Another accident occurred at the exact same spot where the Ferrari Crashed into a taxi.
This road sounds abit eerie now.... =(

The accident happened early in the morning (May 26), a 30-year-old man whose car believed to be a Lexus beat the red light and crashed into a taxi. One of the victims, the male taxi passenger, was sent to the Singapore General Hospital after the accident, which was reported to the police at about 3.15am on 26  May 2012.

He was treated as an outpatient. One of the car drivers was arrested for drink driving. Police are investigating the case. 

Check this Youtube video:


Read these news at Stomp here.

Anyway everyone just be careful when u cross the road or drive on road!


To all pedestrians, please use the overhead bridge or underpass if there is.
These days is not really safe to cross the road with so many reckless drivers!!!


To all drivers, please be careful when you drive too, you may not be at fault but do look out for those cars who want to beat red light!!!

Perhaps the TP (Traffic Police) should station one or two officers there to monitor for this period of time everyday from 12 - 6 am since TWO similar accidents had occurred recently within the 2 weeks, and both are accidents are quite related to drink driving. Be it the road may be haunted or anything, its best to monitor it during this period of time.

Thanks to BRAND'S®!

Have you tried the BRAND'S® Essence of Chicken already?


Remember a friend gave me the BRAND'S® Essence of Chicken?
Refer to the blogpost here dated 9th May 2012!


Yes.. I'VE TRIED IT! 

I took it consistently throughout the 6 days from 10th - 15th May. One bottle per day every morning!
It really works and keeps me awake even during the first day i tried it! I can feel the difference, THE DRIVE in myself in executing my work in the office and likewise, i felt MORE ALERT when i'm outside or anywhere!

Let's take for example.. on the Friday, 11th May I drove to work... during lunchtime i need to run some errands to collect some stuffs, hence i need to be fast! BRAND'S® Essence of Chicken helps me to be alert to keep to the correct lanes.. (rather than stopping behind the longest queue at the traffic junction when the light is red OR following behind the wrong car on the expressway) and yet WITHOUT speeding! I also managed to find a parking lot efficiently during the lunch hour when almost everywhere is fully packed with cars!

Thanks to BRAND'S® Essence of Chicken!


It's REALLY GoOD!

Even my best friend William gave it to me when i was sick last time~!
And i even posted it on Facebook! Check this Out!

It was indeed a good gift! :)
