#DALoveKnot – Chapter 10 (Actual Day – Day Time)

Today we celebrate our 1st Anniversary of #DALOVEKNOT! To share the joy, i decided to release my wedding review today!

Finally.. After months of preparation, the big day has come! With many helps we’ve got, I managed to be a very chillax bride with no overrun on my agenda! SMART PLANNING! *proud*

In this post, I’ll be sharing A LOT of stuff! ie: MUA, bridal car, PG/VG, banquet.. Bear with me because this is probably the one and only post I’m gonna do on MY WEDDING!!

Here goes..

I was suppose to be the excited one who cant get to sleep but seems like many others got more excited than me. At least I know my MOH only slept 1 hours.. Me? I slept for a good 5-6 hrs! HAHAHA! When you trust your team, you sleep well!

Around 3:30am, I woke up and got myself all prepared and ready! Even started to cook the bitter gourd for my team bride’s gate crash!! Before I could finish boiling the water, my MUA (Joann from Bridal Studio) arrived and soon I got chained up in my room for the makeup..

 

I think my PG/VG came early too? I don’t know, I was in my room, remember? All i heard is laughter and conversation in the living room until my PG/VG came peeping in my room to say hi! They were very prompt in their work, wasted no time and started shooting here and there. Btw, it was also the first time we met our VG, finger crossing hard that we’ll have no hard time taking his instructions.

Brides, listen, if you need to eat, EAT! Damn, i was so freaking hungry when i woke up! Must be the super filling dinner i had last night made me so hungry in the morning.. My MUA was pretty accommodating! LOL she allow me to eat while she do the makeup and very kind of my PG/VG didn’t edit photos of me eating onto the SDE!

I’m not very particular on makeup, as in, I do not have in mind a look that I want the MUA to achieve, hence generally, i feel the makeup is still ok. The only think is, I feel that Joann may needs to pay more attention on bride’s eye makeup. I didn’t think that my eyes were balance in the morning – one big one small. But it’s ok, since it’s not very obvious.. (Anyway, i only realised that after she left, so be it..)

Other than that I must say my morning was pretty good. A lil emotional but it was all under control!!

tick tock tick tock… very soon, 7am the bridal car came honking!!!

Not hard to guess what follows after…

Team Groom was so steady! Played the games with no foul! Hahahaha! Guess we think too badly of them!!

The games lasted per my planned time and soon I got to hear my groom saying his 10 promises to me!! LOL!! His money is MY money!!! I LOVE IT! Oh brides, if you’re reading this.. pls draft the 10 promises for your hubby, or least, give him some clues on what you want! Else you might get some funny promises from him! Nearly fainted when i saw my hubby’s version of 10 promises hence i decided to draft one for him!

Anyway, shortly after he FTB, we left home and went for mid-day shoot.. I believe my PG/VG already comb thru the garden near my place hence when we were there, they gave me clear instructions where to go, what to do, where to look! I love clear instructions and i love my PG/VG!! They planned minimum walking for me, they joke all the time, we were all like friends in a very short time. When i say all, it includes my team groom and team bride.

side track abit: Seriously, it’s not like I wanna nag again, but as compared to my PWS PG, I love my AD PG/VG so so much more!! Clear instructions, joke that does sounds like a joke and doesn’t at all made me feel insecure about how the photos gonna turn out. In fact I didn’t even thought of worrying about my photos/video! (ehem, although i haven’t seen all of it yet)

 

At least, until that point of time, I’m still very pleased with my decision in engaging DrinkTea Artwork! At the rate the go for taking pictures, i really trust that photo will turn out better looking good!

After we’re done with the shoot, we hopped onto our bridal car and headed to the groom’s place.. then i heard a horror story from our driver!! He actually come to my place in the morning thinking that it’s the groom’s place!!!! OMG~ LOL!!! But I think because he came early (to my place), he managed to pick up the groom before 630am and return to the bride’s place for the gate crash! (Efficient eh!)

Upon reaching the groom’s place, we started our tea ceremony, feeding each other tang yuan, kept drinking the bowl of dessert water..

“again.. again… again… again…” until we finish the bowl of water.. hard work behind every good photos/video!

When all done, the groom was called to do some shots so the happy bride went to take a break, char siew bun with coke! omg~ like heaven! But it’s not like i got a lot of time to enjoy. Shortly after, I need to changed into my kua and return home..

I can feel my fats bouncing with joy the moment we untie the white gown! LOL! Finally can breathe in more air!! The only thing is.. i need to walk small steps in kua because the dress is kinda straight cut..

To be honest, the whole morning went pretty well. I didn’t have to worry about agenda overrun because my team bride constantly reassured me that we’re on schedule and all contact person are being updated on our whereabout. Besides that, I feel that my groom was pretty comfortable with our PG/VG too. He’s quite camera shy if case u didn’t think so. Hence, the whole trip from place to place, he didn’t feel awkward and/or acted weirdly. *thumbs up Mr. Chong*

In fact most of the time, the PG/VG just did their work without us knowing.. All we need to do is follow the flow and stay BEAUTIFUL!!

I must say, I love Kelvin’s pro-activeness!! Before we got in the car, he already boost up his aircon power! The moment i got in, all i could say is.. “wahhhh (with a smile)!” With such heavy gown & thick kua, it’s really quite difficult not to perspire like hell..

Back to the bride’s place, we actually took a 5 mins breaks for “air purifying” session (smoking break) before heading up to our unit.. Yes, we were so on time that we actually can afford to have break time and selfie time!!

 

When the lift door open, I’m like OMG, so crowded!!? But I’m glad that our guests had already started taking their brunch. My MOH helped ordered buffet from Stamford Catering Service. Well, I didn’t receive much compliment but at least there wasn’t any negative feedback too. At least I was told that the honey glazed wing was nice & I personally like the crab meat siew mai.. Now that aside..

The couple (we) went back to their bedroom and started the whole tang yuan saga again.. feed each other tangyuan and drank the dessert water again, again, again, again and again until we finish the whole bowl.. (I’m super thankful that my bowel system is super cooperative on that day!)

When done, we headed out to the living room for tea ceremony and I’m thankful everyone was present to give their blessing! After tea ceremony done, we took a few family group shots (Ronald (PG) call the shots).. and we ended our morning agenda ON TIME, actually earlier than planned!!! & the happy bride finally can have a proper meal!!!

Stay tune for evening post coming soon!

VENDOR FOR THE DAY

MUA from Memoire & Co – Joann (3/5)

Normal makeup can be quite thick and suffocating actually. I still prefer airbrush makeup but too bad will need to top up extra if you want it. Joann was a pretty accommodative person. Prior AD, i did send her some hairdo looks that I would like to have in the morning and i guess she did work on it. I pretty happy with the hairdo in the morning. but makeup wise, like i mention earlier, she’ll need to more attentive to the eye area. The bride should be the most beautiful person that day. Big small eyes is definitely a big no-no.

Bridal Car from WeddingCarz – Kelvin (4/5)

Prior confirmation, we actually request a car viewing appointment and Abel (weddingcarz) helped us arranged and sent us to appointment location to meet our driver. Both Abel and Kelvin (our driver) gave us tips and told us that car will usually be sent for polishing and/or cleaning before AD so need not worry about the car condition.

Kelvin was pretty nice IMO. I’m not sure about other couples, but we actually requested for Kelvin to pick up our hand bouquet and fresh flower corsages from the bridal studio when he’s there for car deco the day prior AD. Kelvin agreed to it and took great care of those flowers (aircon room for hand bouquet & fridge for corsages)! He even have got a DIY hand bouquet stand in his car for us to put out hand bouquet! How considerate!!

TIPS

  • No U-turn anytime of the day when the couples are in the car.
  • No reversing anytime of the day when the couples are in the car.
  • Teochew brides, we usually needs to arrive groom’s place prior sunrise so as to avoid “sunlight” on bride (don’t ask me why!). If you’re like me, starting your day after sunrise, you can consider going straight to the groom’s place and save your midday shoot after that (you will most likely be in your Kua/tea dress) and ta-daa..”sunlight” avoided prior arriving groom’s place!!

Now.. EXCLUSIVE NEWS! If you’re looking for bridal car and don’t mind black car, I would recommend Kelvin. Considerate and cost effective (which I found out later from Carousell!)

Check out THIS LINK for his carousell page! I paid a much higher rate for the same thing because I went through WeddingCarz. My advice, GO DIRECT to him. Chauffeured Wedding Service (BMW 523i – Sportiest Black Beemer with black leather seats) for S$280, go where find??

He does other wedding services too if I’m not wrong. Wedding deco (car & reception)/PG/VG too..

PG/VG from DrinkTea Artwork –  Ronald & Gan (5/5)

What more can I ask for other than a team of fun people during our wedding!! PG/VG are super important people for your wedding!! Other than your own team groom & team bride, they’re next in the list who will be with you the WHOLE DAY! I’m sure you wouldn’t want someone with grumpy face and attitude service to spoil your day ya?? Most importantly, they’re the one who will give you memories to keep for a lifetime.. No eye-rolling, No double chin, no flabby arms! LOL..

We really had fun working with them! I may have taken plenty of selfies, but when it comes to a real shoot, I need clear instructions! This is what they give me without making me feel stupid. Ever since the PWS experience, I learnt that chemistry is super duper critical! Without chemistry, you will not have patience. Without patience, you’ll be be frustrated! When you’re frustrated, you’ll not be a happy bride and you’ll make everyone on their toes! hmm..

Anyway, back to DrinkTea, They may not be the most cost effective team we found but they’re the one which we actually liked both their services. This made coordinating much easier when it comes to AD.

Buffet from Stamford Catering (4/5)

I can’t really give much comment about this as I wasn’t the one working on this. If i were to rate it, I will give it 4 stars because i pick this outta the few options my MOH provided! One of the reason i chose this was also because I tried their bento set before and they were good! But I guess, bento set and buffet orders were prepared in different kitchen?? LOL!

That is all for my Actual Day (Morning) review!!

DA BIG TUMMY #103 – Black Pepper Crab

#AllIWantForChristmasIsFood #DABigTummy

No countdown no party on Christmas Eve! This is my sign of aging! Spent quality time with my secret master chef at home!

As the title suggest, we are cooking Black Pepper Crab (BPC) today – remember in my previous post we wanted to cook BPC too but ended up with Curry Chicken?!! I’m glad we managed to buy a few crabs from Shengsiong Supermarket! At the eleventh hour, we decided to drop my cousin a text and invite her over for a Christmas dinner! Good thing is, she is available. What’s even better is that the crab is so addictively delicious (at least for me)!

 

By the look of the ingredient, it doesn’t seems difficult to prepare!

What you need

  1. Crabs (2 x 300-400g or 1 x 1kg)
  2. Coarse Black Pepper (adjust to your liking)
  3. Unsalted Butter (60-70g; 1/4 of SCS butter)
  4. Curry Leaves (a stalk or two)
  5. 1 Onion (chop/strip both works)
  6. 2 cups of Water
  7. 2 tbsp of Oyster Sauce
  8. 1 tbsp Sugar
  9. 5 tbsp Dark Sauce
  10. 1 tbsp Corn Starch (optional)

 

How we do it in less than 9 steps

1. Mix oyster sauce, dark sauce, sugar together and set aside (ratio of 2:5:1)

2. Heat up wok, fragrance fry the coarse black pepper (without oil).

3. Add butter, onions & curry leaves, fry it further.

4. Add crab, give it a good fry. (If you’re like me, don’t know how to handle a crab, I believe you can request the stall owner to chop the crab into pieces for you.)

5. Add water and the mixture you done earlier in step 1, stir well then cover with lid. Wait for about 10-15 mins – depending on the crab size. (Don’t worry if you feel the water is too much, just continue to stir/fry it, the water will gradually evaporate)

6. Taste the sauce to check if it’s to your liking. You can add whichever sauce or even more pepper if you wanna spice it up a little.

(Optional)

7. Mix corn starch with a little water (1:2).

8. Add in the wok to thicken the sauce.

Now you done!! Serve it on your dinner plate and garnish it with coriander leaves (or curry leaves if you extra; save money fr buying coriander just to garnish)!

Most of the ingredient are pretty flexible on measurement. We added more black pepper because I like it hot. We added corn starch as I like thick sauce (we didn’t add corn starch the first time as my hubby doesn’t like thick sauce).

IMO, I think the curry leaves plays a big part. We didn’t add that previously and the BPC was lacking an extra punch. Now we tried to cook it again, we added curry leaves and immediately the fragrance whoosh outta the wok!

If you like BPC crab too, I suggest to give it a try..! If I can do it, so can you!!

BFF edition #102 – The Little Human

My sister texted me the other day asking: “Are u pregnant?” ….That was the most random question she ever asked me. Then I realized, it was because my recent hashtag got them confused!! #DABIGTUMMY!! Lolol!!!

Today, I invited someone special to write for Tempted2love! A friend, a colleague, a first time mom! Yes! She will be sharing her experience with you & if you’re a first time mom too…. don’t miss these series of exclusive post! Here goes..


BACK TO WHEN IT ALL BEGAN..

I still remember feeling under the weather with a fever in March and I dismissed it because of a few work events and the rush to clear my work just before our Japan trip.

Packing for the trip was arduous. My jeans couldn’t fit for some reason, there was this bulge at my abdomen, and I didn’t look good in everything I wore. I figured this was the result of stress-eating and lack of exercise.

During the trip, I remember having lesser stamina and an increased in appetite. I ate more meals than Papa Ong. I also started going to the toilet at night a lot, like once-every-hour kinda thing. I was constantly tired, yet I couldn’t sleep. I felt like Goldilocks trying to search for that perfect bed.

Nagoya, Takayama, Kanazawa and Shirakawa were awesome! We spammed the Sashimi, Onsen all day, and celebrated with alcohol. Yup, all these happen while I didn’t realise I had a little human growing in me. Then again, I know if I were to have found out, I would have be so cautious and the trip would probably turn out a bore.

When we came back from Japan, I found out I have bruises at the back of my knees. It looked so bad people thought I was abused😅 Turns out, pregnant women are more prone to blood clotting.

I also went for a massage and the lady commented that my stomach was hard. I was happily telling her I just returned from Japan and must have eaten too much. She started pressing on my tummy and it was so painful, but silly me thought “she is working to cut down the fats, just endure!”

My period was delayed for a few days and I started to have a hunch I could be pregnant (It’s even more punctual than me during school days) but my besties were commenting “Must be the cold weather in Japan. Your body needs to adjust back to SG weather”.

The first time I took the test, the hormones weren’t strong enough to display it accurately. It was one thick line with a second barely-there line. A week later, my period was still not here and I decided to take the test again. 2 THICK LINES staring right back at me. We were shocked, unprepared and not expecting it.

I then quickly scheduled an appointment with the doctor and he confirmed the pregnancy. Apparently, you could be pregnant but if the egg is outside the womb, you can’t have the baby etc.

With that ultrasound, we decided to break the news to our parents and I guess they were equally surprised but we’re all very excited. I remember my grandmother clapping her hands and saying “好好好”😂

How did you find out you were pregnant? I would love to know!

DA BIG TUMMY #702 – Curry Chicken

#AllIWantForChristmasIsFood! #DABigTummy

It seems like the major change I see in myself after getting hitched is I start to enjoy cooking. It’s not like I hate cooking but probably just not so enthusiastic about it.

Since it’s a Christmas weekend, a long weekend, how can we missed the chance to whip up a dish! We had “Black Pepper Crab” in mind – we cooked that last week and it was (ehem) delicious! We combed through the whole wet market but no sight of crab (alamak)!

What happen when Plan A doesn’t work? Work on Plan B! While queuing to buy to buy my favourite neighborhood waffle, we saw French loaves and immediately new idea lighted up like a bulb on our head! We bought 2 French loaves and quickly searched YouTube for Curry Chicken recipe!

Click HERE for the video link!

Now we know what we need, we quickly head back to the wet market and grab everything we need, of course!

Ingredient:

  1. 1 whole Chicken (cut in pieces)
  2. 3 large potatoes
  3. 30g ginger slices
  4. 10 cloves garlic
  5. 5 shallots
  6. 50g fresh chili paste
  7. 5 tbsp curry powder
  8. 3 tbsp. oil
  9. 1 stalk lemongrass
  10. 20 curry leaves
  11. 600ml water
  12. 200ml coconut milk
  13. 1 tbsp salt (adjust to taste)
  14. 1 tbsp sugar (adjust to taste)
  15. ½ tbsp chicken powder

Above are the ingredients MeatMen video asked for. We followed most of it diligently except we didn’t buy a whole chicken! We bought 5 big drumstick instead ($2.40 each) and chopped into pieces.

To start, we peeled all the shallots, garlic & ginger (the quantity we used 10:15:47g). We added 3 chilli padi (which the recipe didn’t call for) hoping to level up the spiciness!

Blend shallots, garlic, ginger & chilli until you get paste-like mixture (it totally smells like chicken rice chilli now!). After that, mix them with the chilli paste and curry powder. We used 150g of chilli paste and the whole pack of curry powder u see in above picture. I guess our potion accidentally just got upsized 3 time!

If you ask me, this is probably the most tedious step. After all these done, all you need to do is just cook it!

1. Heat up wok, add appropriate amount of oil.

2. Fry the chilli paste mixture until fragrance overwhelm the kitchen (>.<).

3. Throw in chopped chicken, lemongrass & curry leaves. and fry until chicken is about 70% cooked.

4. Pour in 600ml of water, give it another good stir.

5. Add potato, let it simmer for 10-15 mins (we boiled the potato a bit prior putting into the curry, this step is totally optional).

6. Add in coconut milk & give it another stir (we bought coconut cream instead and with the upsized quantity, we added 500ml of it)

7. Add sugar & salt to enhance the taste. (We skipped chicken powder/stock)

8. Cover with lid, and let it simmer for another 20-30 mins

Congratulation, you’re now looking like a master chef! Lol!!! We tried the curry with immediately while it’s hot and it was ok..!

Like Meatmen mentioned, let curry sit for another hour or so in order for the flavor to sip in the chicken/potatoes.. we did the same, but we let it sat longer (3-4 hrs), we didn’t purposely leave it there to sit. It’s just that we’re already full from first serving hence leave the rest for dinner.

Indeed by dinner time, the curry is so much more flavorful! If lunch is 80 points, dinner is definitely worth 95 points!

If there’s anything I can cook, I’m sure you can! Give it a try today and be your very own master chef!

DA BIG TUMMY #701 – Teochew Orh Nee

#happyweekend #happycooking #DABigTummy

After asatisfying lunch at a friend’s place, I’m so inspired to cook up something too!

To start with, I’m no expert in cooking but I can prepare simple dishes with youtube’s help!

Today, I will be sharing (like the title suggested) ORH NEEEE! It’s my favourite dessert and it’s a Teochew dessert!

I don’t have much picture of the preparation as it’s my first time trying to make one (& didn’t expect it would turn out so well!) >_<

But I will still share the youtube link with you so that you can make reference!

So many video? Which one to follow? Actually I followed a bit of everything! With a bit of everything, below is my version of Orh Nee:

INGREDIENT (**based on estimation)

1 Whole Yam (about 1.2kg – 1.5kg)

1 Slice Pumpkin(about 150g)

1 Pack Gingko Nuts(or 100g)

200ml CoconutCream or Coconut Milk

100g Rock Sugar**

150g Caster Sugar**

A (few) Pinch of Salt**

2 Cups Vegetable Oil**(you can use 200g of lard if you can get them)

2-3 Knots of Pandan Leave** (good to have but can do without too)

All above ingredient can be adjusted to your own taste preference. I underlined those ingredient which I feel is a must have! The rest I didn’t really use them because I forgot to buy them!! LOL!

**based on estimation as I totally didn’t use any measuring kit! You know like how our parents also cook..? “agar-agar” can already.. If you think it’s sweet enough for u already then you do not need to add more sugar. if 150g is too blend, just add more sugar.

HOW TO

  • Cut/chop yam & pumpkin into cubes and steam them (I steamed them for about 40 mins. Throw in some pandan leaves if desire).
  • While waiting, let’s work on the gingko nuts (ie: Shiokman’s video):
    • Sliced gingko nuts into half and pick out the stem.
    • When done, cook gingko nuts in boiling water & add rock sugar to sweeten it (you can use caster sugar if you dun have rock sugar).
    • Throw in pandan leaves if you have (I skipped this as i forgot to buy pandan leaves).
  • Once yam and pumpkin are cooked/soften, mashed them. (NOTE: mashed the yam while its hot. Once cold, it will be hard to mash)
  • PUMPKIN: After mashed, add sugar for sweetness and set aside (pumpkin’s done!)
  • YAM: After mashed, you can then transfer into a food processor to blend them further so you get a finer texture.
    • Add in the gingko syrup, caster sugar and a pinch of salt and blend together to add taste (you can adjust this according to suit your taste bud).
    • Add 1 cup vegetable oil to smooth it (optional).
  • Heat up your wok with 1 cup vegetable oil (or melted lard) to stir-fry your yam paste! (ie: Meatmen’s video)
  • Add sugar to enhance the taste!
  • Keep stirring until yam paste and oil combined into a smooth texture.

Ready to serve?! HANG ON!! Remember I have my coconut cream??

  • Heat up coconut cream (I added half cup of water as cream is too think)
  • Add a pinch of salt
  • Stir well and done!

Now you’re ready to serve!!

For this orh nee, I only purchased yam, pumpkin and gingko, assuming that’s all i need until i re-watch the video then realized I missed out so much! Lucky for me, I have vegetable oil & rock sugar at home so everything is still manageable!

My food processor didn’t work (yes, like a bad day to cook!)! So if you don’t have a food processor, get a sieve and do it the hard way!

In short, all you need to do is Steam, Mash, Blend and you’re done! You can skip the frying you’re lazy (ie: Hed Chef and Shiokman’s version are non fried)!

Give it a try and tell me how you like it (or not like?)?

Tsururi Point Clay Pack

It was just a casual “walk” in Watson’s to check out sale and who knows I ended up with something I have no plans buying (& didn’t buy what I planned to!)!

TSURURI POINT CLAY PACK – GHASSOUL.RED CLAY.ARGAN OIL

What is Ghassoul Mineral Clay? It is derived from the Atlas Mountains in Morocco, Ghassoul Clay is a rare and high quality soothing clay well-known for its gentle and natural healing properties.

BENEFITS:

• Ionic detoxification

• Treats acne

• Controls excess oil

• Brightens skin

• Exfoliates, tightens & smoothens

• Improves skin elasticity

• Evens skin tone

• Protects against free radical damage

• Environmentally friendly

So here’s my clay pack!!

Tsururi Clay Pack is formulated with two types of clay to penetrate deep into pores and whisk away impurities!

Impurity absorbing ingredient: Morocco Ghassoul (which we had shared earlier) and Red Clay (a powerful purifying agent which is high in iron. It absorbs excess skin oil and also has superior moisturizing effect!)

Skin treatment ingredient: Red Rock Salt

Moisturiser: Arnab Oil & Honey

Brought home and got my hands working on it immediately!!

So after I washed my face, I applied a thin layer of clay on my chubby nose! You can apply the clay on T-zone or area prone to oiliness!

Impurities and excess oil are absorbed to skin’s surface, appearing as darkened spots!

The clay dries pretty fast… before you know it… it’s already drying up and hardened! You do not need to wait very long to see the oil mark!

At 5 mins, it’s almost good to wash away! Before we wash it….. here’s a CLOSER look!!!!

***WARNING: image below looks really gross! Scroll down at your own risk!

Now that it’s dried/hardened, time to rinse off!

Verdict: Tsururi Clay Pack does remove my clogged pores! Not 100% but I can see result after one use! Skin does feels clean and smooth too!

Just to ensure it’s not the clay drying with spots, I tested it on my hand! NO OIL SPOTS on my hand..!

Will I buy again? I don’t know! It seems like 1 tube can last pretty long as only need to apply a thin layer! By then, maybe there’s even better product out on market.. However, if there’s nothing better, I will definitely buy this again when I finished using the one I have now!

MKUP Cloudy Deep Pore Cleansing Awakening Mask

Yesh! Finally made time to share this cloudy mask review with you!

WHAT IS CLOUDY DEEP PORE CLEANSING AWAKENING MASK? 

Luxurious Skin Essence Treatment that reawakens tired dull skin back to life, purging out impurities deep in the pores while injecting precious Arbutin, Vitamin C & Whitening Essence that stops formation of pigmentation and brightens skin to a new tone. Vitamin B5, E, Carbonated Water and Pore minimizing Essence to create ultimate skin recovery regime leaving a bright pore less and water charged skin with each treatment.

So here’s me with my mask!

 

Pardon the poor quality photo! I was using my iPhone front camera and quality got compromised due to insufficient lighting..

The super dense foam starts to oxidize as soon as i applied on my face.. I look so ugly max with the mask! It’s difficult to apply them smoothly because it’s so dense it doesn’t move swiftly when you push it..

 

Oxidization process is kinda slow (or maybe i applied too much).. It has been more than 20 mins but some part of my face are still “cloudy”.. But nevermind! I went ahead to wash my face and tried to remove my blackheads!

I must say, this works so much better than the Deep Pore Cleanser! Blackheads were easily removed with Cloudy Mask and skin does looks brighter (not whiter!)

So if you’re contemplating to get Deep Pore Cleanser or Cloudy Awakening Mask, I would recommend you to get this instead!

If you ask me, i would prefer buying from qoo10! At least i can apply my coupon for further discount! LOL!

Check out Deep Pore Cleanser review HERE!

MKUP Deep Pore Cleanser

FB advertisement are scary! Just a short 2 min video made me spend $64.80!

Not bad right??? Like so easy can!!

*finger clicking* ADDED TO CART!! LOL!!

Then another FB advertisement

Seriously.. they’re not like made expensive hence thought just give both a try…..

Today, i’ll just be sharing the review on Calendula Extract Deep Pore Cleansing Mousse!

Easy to use is definitely the first thing that comes into my mind! brush and cleanser all in one bottle. No need to lather any foam and just a push u’re ready to scrub scrub scrub!

After trying, I wouldn’t say this is the best pore cleanser I had tried. It didn’t remove as much pores as what the video shows.. Video’s a lil too extreme i think.. sigh, 广告都是骗人的..

Well at least i tried! If you would like to give it a try too, check out from Qoo10 (click image to be redirected)!

LINK: http://www.qoo10.sg/su/414604037/Q101716446

However, the Cloudy Deep Pore Cleansing Awakening Mask is another story!!! I will share that with you again in another post with more pictures!! That one is much better..!
