Windflower Florist 

Happy Father’s Day guys! Saw this short quote on FB and decided to make it my opening for today!

What I’d give, if i could say “Hello Dad” in the same old way.

To hear his voice and see his smile, to sit with him and chat for a while.

So if your father is still here, cherish him with care, for you’ll never know the heartache until you see his empty chair.

Happy Fathers Day Dad! .. and back to today’s topic!!

Today I’m gonna share with you how much of a love-hate feeling i have for Windflowers Florist!!

With social media, I tell you, it’s so easy to compare and look an almost perfect bouquet for your special someone! Say goodbye (not forever) to old-school flower arrangement! There are now so many IG-worthy florist out there that worth your time to check out their collection!

However, one thing that will make me constantly goes back to them, are not just about the collection. It’s the customer service and of course price!

Chance upon Windflower on Instagram while I was checking out some other stuff and really love the bouquets I saw! Pastel.. Rustic.. Romantic.. Totally something that I will have a second look..

My first bouquet from Windflower was “Daisy-Me-Rolling in Pink“! It was a lil surprise for someone birthday!

Daisy-Me-Rolling in Pink keeping it sweet and pretty.

Rough Dimensions: 45cm (H) x 26cm (W)

Price: $35.00

It’s simple and classic with a decent size ! Most importantly, pocket friendly!!

Actual bouquet when received, looks totally fresh too! That makes me a happy customer already!

When we needed bouquet for office celebration, Windflower came into my mind again! With a higher budget this time, we were able to buy a bigger bouquet – we needed 2!

Wanted to have something similar but still able to tell the difference (1 for a lady & the other for a gentleman) we zoomed down to below:

HARU(春), KIETSU: Hydrangeas are one of our most requested bouquets. Native to the Land of the Rising Sun, these Japanese Shrubs are elegant in their own right. This is Haru, a sweet blend of pink hydrangea and peach baby roses, rustically wrapped in kraft paper to put a smile on your special someone.

Rough Dimensions: 50cm (H) x 30cm (W)

Price: $75.00; SALE $69.90

 

NATSU(夏)KIETSU: Hydrangeas are one of our most requested bouquets. Native to the Land of the Rising Sun, these Japanese Shrubs are elegant in their own right. This is Natsu, a refreshing blend of blue hydrangea with shocking pink baby roses, rustically wrapped in kraft paper to put a smile on your special someone.

Rough Dimensions: 50cm (H) x 30cm (W)

Price: $75.00; SALE $69.90

Before getting this, there were actually a few communication to and fro to decide what I wanted (I’ll skip the details..). All I can say is, Windflower is really professional. They provided advise/opinion and was able to let me do minor customization to the bouquet – even though in the end we didn’t do what I initially wanted. Can’t sense any frustration from our communication! (I would probably rolled a thousand eyes behind the mobile if my customers were like me!)

Actual bouquet that we received, totally BEAUTIFUL and SMELLS so niceeee! I seriously don’t know the names of these flowers but it doesn’t matters because LOVE needs no reason! The flower arrangement were beautifully done – it feels as if every flowers & leaves were just as important in this bouquet!

Together with the above 2 bouquets, I added another bouquet few days before to be delivered together on the same day – I guess 2-3 days before is not really that last min uh..?

 

ENAMOUR: A rustic arrangement of White Rose sprays and White Roses, be enamoured with the quiet beauty this bouquet exudes.

Rough Dimensions: 45cm (H) x 28cm (W)

Price: $55.00

Yeap, this was the additional flowers we bought. Slightly smaller but look very pure/demure.. Actual bouquet was a lil disappointing becuase of some dry petals and browning edges but didn’t affect me much as it still look beautiful overall..!

With such “massive” order in a day, I’m glad that Windflower didn’t screw up my orders! All notes and instructions were well taken care off!! *thumbs up*

With such pleasant experience with them already, how not to order another bouquet!!!

But before the next order, how about a cam-whore moment first!! Who doesn’t love flowers… >_< a beautiful bouquet of flowers somemore!!

Since my cousin’s birthday is around the corner, I decided to plan another surprise for her (I’ll share her GRAND Surprise in another post another day)!

Cotton Candy: Here’s our ever so popular Cotton Fluff bouquet wrapped in the special Pink French Paper! Don’t you think it’s just so lovely?!

Rough Dimensions: 38cm (H) x 20cm (W)

Price: $45.00

Yeap! Here’s her bouquet cotton flowers!! Real bouquet looks pretty true! Ordered something different this time to celebrate her BIG-3!! Again no disappointment at all!! prompt delivery service no hiccups!

I would highly recommend Windflower florist!! Why buy traditional bouquet when you can get IG worthy ones!!

BONUS!! Bought another bouquet earlier this week and OMG it’s totally….

ABC!!! AWESOME! BEAUTIFUL!! CAPTIVATING!!! My friend told me looks like a bridal bouquet!! Hahahaha!! So glad it made her day!!

This is their weekly special – My Little Peony!!

My Little Peony: Peonies are in season! Wrapped in our signature sweet pink wrap, don’t miss out on gifting a special one this sweet-scented bloom!

Rough Dimensions: 40cm(H) x 26cm(W) *Only available until 20th June

Indonesia Bali (Day 2)

A planned tour on day 2 of our Bali trip! We got this private tour (driver) contact from a friend! The funny thing is, she herself never engaged his service before. However, she recommended to many others and received positive feedback about his service.

So here we are, a Day Tour to Ubud with Putu! …If you had read my Day 1 post (HERE), you’ll realize my airport pick up driver’s name was Putu too!! But they’re not the same Putu! 🙂 Anyway, Putu was pretty on time, 9:30am texted me about his arrival at my villa reception.

We didn’t have a fixed itinerary to follow, most of the time, it was played by ears. Hence don’t be too surprise if your tour is different from mine even if you planned to go Ubud.

First stop, Artist Village (if i didn’t remember wrongly). We went to this place that show tourist how batik is made, it was a pretty short introduction actually and then you will be brought to the souvenir shop to do shopping.

 

If you ask me, I think you can skip this place unless you want to buy some batik product. They have very extensive goods available – ie: bedroom slipper, shirt, dress, table mat, pouch, drawings, shawl, etc.. However, if you want to know how to make batik, go youtube instead..

We left this place pretty soon after we walked one round and yes, we bought 2 table placemat for our dining table – was given 50% discount.. Probably because we’re Putu’s guest? I don’t know..

Next location was one of my favorite location, Coffee Plantation.

 

When we reached there, the plantation staff greeted us and brought us in. Again, it was short tour giving us knowledge on how Luwak’s Coffee was produced..

When the cats (civets) eat the coffee berries, fermentation of the coffee beans occurs in the cat’s digestive system. During this process, the cat’s proteolytic enzymes seep into the coffee beans, thus creating shorten peptide as well as an abundance of amino acids. This is what gives this coffee it’s unique flavor and aroma. So during this entire digestive process, the beans are transformed into the Kopi Luwak many coffee drinkers have grown to adore. This process is known to lower the bitterness of the coffee.

So at this plantation, they will also demonstrate to your how they prepare the coffee..

 

Best of all. you get FREE coffee/tea tasting!

On the left are the sampling size coffee and tea.. There a laminated sheet of paper on the tray (beneath those cups) showing you what coffee/tea you’re drinking.. Roselle tea, herbal tea, Mangosteen tea, Ginger tea, Coconut coffee, Ginseng coffee, etc etc…

As for Luwak coffee, you’re need to pay 50,000IDR, and my coffee lover hubby ordered one for Putu and one for himself..

 

So after tasting the sampling size, we decided to buy a few pack for our families and friend to try.. If you have the chance to come here, give Luwak coffee a try..

we spent quite a while here before heading to our next destination..

While on the road, we noticed that there isn’t much public transport hence we asked Putu.. According to him, there are public buses available but the frequency is 50 mins interval.. Like seriously?? That probably explains why the road are always full of motorbikes and car – busy road always!

So next destination…

Another souvenir shop.. we did not spend a lot of time here, probably 5 mins and we left.

Next attraction, Tegenungan Waterfall!

Tourist will need to pay 10,000IDR per pax. Quite a decent amount actually..

Tegenungan Waterfall is located at the Tegenungan Kemenuh village, in Gianyar, North from the capital Denpasar and close to the artist village of Ubud. The waterfall is isolated but has become a popular tourist attraction to explore and relax. It is one of the few waterfalls in Bali that is not situated in highlands or mountainous territory. The amount and clarity of the water at the site depends on rainfall but it contains green surroundings with fresh water that can be swum in. The waterfall includes varying highs that can be climbed after the decent down stairs to reach it. This attraction also features a viewing point to the jungle and waterfall at the main entrance

Before we check out the waterfall, checkout Putu’s sexy back!! ^_^

 

It was quite crowded actually! many tourist actually walked down to play with the water! This reminds me of Kota Tinggi waterfall tho..

If we had come with more people and extra clothes, we would have stay to play a while.. 🙂 There’s bathroom for you to wash up too..!

Just before we left………

OMG! I saw my favourite CORN!! GRILL CORN!! Grilled with coconut husk!

The prettiest picture I had in that 4 days!! A shot with my grilled corn filled with coconut fragranceeeee!!

After this, Putu told us the next stop will be another crafty shop, we were a bit relunctant to go but I guess it’s still a good exposure..

After the wood carving shop, we were given the option to eat babi guling or dirty bebek..  As we didnt get to eat my babi guling last night, we chose babi guling at a local stall!

Our happy meal!!! 40,000IDR for a set like this I think.. This is not the usual portion the local eat.. LOL we got Putu’s help to get us a set where we can try everything..

Pig’s blood, Pig’s skin, vegetable, pork, soup..

I recall reading somewhere this was one of the recommended babi guling stall to visit!! We even dabao 20,000IDR worth of babi guling back to our villa as snack! Imagine by evening time when we when back, the skin is still crackling crispy!!

So after lunch, we all had food coma~ I dozed off in Putu’s car!! By the time i woke up, we were at the padi field already!

Again, there’s an entrance fee that you’ll need to pay but I was already zzz hence not sure how much my handsome paid too!

This field was quite a tourist sport.. the farmers sure knows how to earn extra income.. a photo with them cost 5,000IDR, it’s not very expensive but a lil too “commercial”..

I would still recommend you to visit as it’s a really beautiful place! ehem, pls remember to bring mosquito repellent if you have sweet blood!

About 4pm, we are finally heading to out LAST destination before dinner!

   

Upon reaching Batuan Temple, I was mesmerized by the temple structures. It is noted for its artwork and style of painting which originated in the village in the 1930s and has since emerged into a major Balinese artistic style, known as a Batuan painting.

Batuan is mentioned in historical records as far back as 1000 years. The Hindu and Indian influence in the region in the village is evident from the carvings and temples. In the 17th century, Batuan and southern Bali were controlled by the royal family until a priest’s curse led to their losing their control; eventually they dispersed to various parts of the country. During the period of 1947–1949, most of the Batuan people remained loyal to the Gianyar Regency and opposed nationalism.

’nuff said about the temple, we shall go for dinner now! It’s quite a bit of distance from Ubud to Jimbaran, bout 45-60 mins? What else could I do in the car, zzzzz…

we reached the beach at about 6pm, another 30-45mins to sunrise. Again, thanks to Putu, we get to have a front row table for the best sunset view!! (How are we gonna make it through without Putu??)

Due to budget constraint, we ordered the cheapest seafood package @ 900,000IDR!!

While waiting for food, we enjoyed the view the sun and the breeze!

Here comes our food!!!

Don’t underestimate the pathetic looking vegetable, it’s actually quite tasty!

Good for you if you are a chilli lover. The 3 types of chilli they give are totally heavenly! Especially tasty with the grill fish/calamari! The clam was so-so but the lobster is pretty fresh!

And where’s the sunset?

  

Beautiful isn’t it? We were suppose to have dinner while watching sunset.. However, I guess sunset was late. We were done with dinner even before the sky turn orange.

At about 7-7:15pm, we left the place as the sun was almost down and we were already kinda tired.. With this beautiful sunset, we ended our 1 day tour with not much cash left!!  Good thing is, day 3 will be our stay in villa day!! HAHAHA!..

So here’s me with my bare face, more like bear face.. LOL!

 

The shade I’m using is N54 Beige (somewhere light to medium shade)! The texture of this foundation is pretty smooth and it’s easy to blend out, all thanks to its light weight factor!

As for coverage, it did cover my freckles pretty well making them less obvious and I’m happy with it! I guess the half face comparison can speak louder than my words.

Healthy Mix collection seems really worthy! Concealer light weight too and easy to blend! The cushion tip can hold quite a decent amount of concealer hence you do not need to dap and dap again to get enough coverage.

Indonesia Bali (Day 1)

So near yet so far! Although Bali is just less than 3 hours flight away, this is the first time we’re heading there!! I feel that we should have a break after planning #DALOVEKNOT wedding!! A well deserve vacation! PS: this is NOT our honeymoon yet!! >_<

So as you may all be aware, Bali has lots of villa! How I choose? Go to Groupon (via shopback – earn up to 7% cashback)!! Go find a villa that’s within your budget and looks appealing to you!

Bracha Villas: 4D3N stay for 2 for $452 in a Private Pool Villa with Breakfast + 1-Way Airport Transfer (up to $832 value)

bali01

This villa looks not bad leh! Most importantly the pool doesn’t have tree/plants over it hence no worries of bug/insect or leaves dropping into the pool while you swim! Clean poool! (Yes, I’m timid!)

So i went to google about Bracha Villa and learnt that it’s actually quite well located! It’s at the heart of Seminyak! Food/Shopping/Beach all walking distance! What could be better?

So deal locked flight booked and off we went!!

JHFT9197

(View from the plane overlooking at Legian Beach (?) where hard Rock Cafe, Potato Head Beach Club are located.)

Upon arrival (about 130pm), we were greeted by our friendly hotel representative, Putu! Journey from Airport to Bracha is about 30 mins ride! Not sure how much it cost if you’re taking a cab though. However, if you’re planning to take a cab, Blue Bird should be a safer option! You can consider downloading their app and make booking easier (if you have data roaming).

BTW, there’s no time difference between Bali and Singapore..

Upon arriving at our villa, I must say… food is definitely not an issue here! Just opposite our villa is a Chinese restaurant!

IUEE5537

Opening the door to my VACATIONNNNN!!!

The villa is quite true to the illustration shown online.. Hence no shocking sight!

& let me proudly introduce my GIANT FLAMINGO!!!

It’s soooo big that it occupied almost 1/3 of the pool! If you have kids, I got a feeling they are gonna love this giant float!! It cost IDR150,000 per day (about SGD16?)

Now let’s move in to check out the villa rooms!

BLOT8340

TWDR9583

The living area is a comfortable size for 2 person! They have everything that u will need! Fridge, stove, water dispenser, mineral water, complimentary soft drinks, plates, utensils, cooking ware, detergent, washing sponge, pepper & salt, tissue…

AHPK5727

They even have some books for you to read! Now I really don’t mind staying in the villa whole day!!

NORY5961

From the living area (actually bedroom too), you can look out to the pool area, hence no worries about losing sight of your kids when they go to the pool

Now lets take a look at the room!!

IFTF6253

Neat room and ……JGOL0689XZPX9443

Spacious bathroom without door.. The only door u can close while doing business in the toilet is bedroom door.. Yes inconvenient but if you’re going with your partner/spouse, I guess should be fine..

LMAK0328EDYV9584

I must say, staff here are quite thoughtful.. Although it’s a groupon deal, they still arranged rose petals and honeymoon swan on bed after knowing it’s our lil honeymoon! I wasn’t expecting this though.. 🙂 A lovely surprise!

And you think that’s all….?

They even prepared a small cake for us!!!! I dont know if this cake really taste nice or because we’re hungry… This lil cake exceeded our expectation!! hahaha!

COCM4102

Check out what’s outside the bathroom window!! My giant flamingo!! LOL!!

Untitled

I’m soooo in love with my giant float that i was granted a quick swim before we head out to familiarize ourselves with the surrounding! Apart from being our first honeymoon trip, this is also a trip for us to recce and plan for the next family trip! Private pool villa, who doesn’t like that idea??

The streets in Seminyak are all like this. A lil narrow but you’ll get a hang of it very soon..

Very soon, I got a lil too hungry to carry on and her head back to look for Ultimo!

Ultimo was HIGHLY recommended by my friend who went there for honeymoon too! Was told that they have very yummy pasta at affordable price.. I was initially a bit unsure if i want to try because I don’t know the chef’s standard..

Looking and the price, it was indeed quite reasonable and they have quite a wide variety of main course!

The next thing i can recall, I’m seated inside already! hahahaha!!

We ordered a Lychee Juice (I seriously don’t know lychee can be squeezed into juice!) 250g Waygu Steak, Prawn Linguine and a Mix Seafood Soup!

Not very appealing but taste wasn’t that bad. I love lychee hence this taste ok for me! Just image lychee drink but thicker and with a bit of pulps in every sip u take.

It’s a pity I couldn’t find my seafood soup image! The soup look so normal but taste totally like lobster bisque (without the cream maybe!)..

My SUPER DELICIOUS Prawn Linguine! It’s a lil oily but taste totally flavorful! I’m sooo in love with my pasta! Make a guess how many prawn are there in this plate? From the picture I believe u can see it’s quite a lot already ya? There are actually 20 prawns!! I can’t finish this alone!!

Then we have the 250g of Wagyu.. I had a few bit of this and I like this too! Tender medium rare steak with lots of fats.. Fine grated mashed potato with mix greens by the side!

Total Bill: 493,000IDR (approx S$53, depending on your exchange rate)

  • 45,000IDR Lychee Juice
  • 68,000IDR Seafood Soup
  • 200,000IDR Wagyu Steak
  • 180,000IDR Prawn Linguine (can’t recall the price but definitely cheaper than steak)

Food are generally a little more salty in Bali but I’m pretty fine with it. They taste more flavorful in fact! I’ll probably survive well if i’m gonna stay there!

You thought that’s all for our dinner?

We walked back further and landed at this first restaurant we saw when we step out from our villa (other than the chinese restaurant).

My hubby wanted to “purify the air” hence we sat here for a drink and I think he love their espresso! The first sip he took he immediately gave me that raise-brow look and said “好喝! (Nice!)”

Kinda rare for him to say something is nice or delicious.. He’s most common reply for good food is probably “Ok la~”..  Just first day and I heard his say something good about the food/drink!

Another reason we picked this place for him to take his puff was also because they sells babi guling! We ordered a Babi Guling set and a Mixed Satay set for takeaway so that we can have it as supper in the villa!

This is the Chinese restaurant I was saying earlier that’s opposite our villa! Looks pretty wow..

Walking back to our villa from the reception was quite adventurous for me.. It was so dark and eerie, i don’t know if there will be any lizard dropping on me! Guess my imagine went too wild!

Before we tuck in to our supper, CHECK OUT MY POOL NIGHT VIEW!! Got lights and mini “water fall” from the wall!! It’s never too cold for another swim!!!!

Now, back to my supper! The babi guling wasn’t what we expected, we thought it’s suppose to come crispy.. Nonetheless, it still taste quite good! The Babi Guling Set comes with keropok, soup, vegetables and 2 minced meat stick, cost about 98,000IDR?

The Mix Satay set comes with half dozen of satay (3 beef 3 chicken), keropok and vegetable, cost about 78,000IDR? It wasn’t too expensive but the fact that we had already taken dinner and they don’t sell just the meat, we gotta take the whole set, this made it a lil expensive.. LOL!

But overall, it’s still a nice supper!! I was sooooo FULL I think I was filled all the way up to my throat!!

Well, that’s about it on our first day in Bali Seminyak! Slept early so that we can get enough rest for the next day private tour!

BRAND’S® InnerShine® RubyCollagen Essence Drink

HARD TRUTH ABOUT HEART HEALTH

A recent survey has found that Singapore workers are spending more hours at work relative to their regional counterpart, resulting in workplace stress.* Together with the sedentary lifestyle from sitting at the desk the entire day, Singapore workers are facing increased risks of high blood pressure and heart diseases.

*S’pore workplace stress on the rise survey, the Business Times, 27 Aug 2016

Now what has that gotta do with today’s post? Read on..

rubysignature2

Unlike normal collagen, RubySignature™ formula is created with a unique and precious blend of ingredients derived from natural sources. It contains micro-collagen and one of mother nature’s most powerful antioxidants, astaxanthin (micro-algae extract). Scientifically proven, its anti-oxidant power is 6000 times more powerful than Vitamin C, 800 times more powerful than CoQ10 and 500 times more powerful than Vitamin E.

Astaxanthin serves as the perfect complement by acting as a natural shield against the collagen-depleting procedure.

*Results may vary according to individuals

I had drank this for about a week now. I can’t say it changed me totally but I can see the radiance on my skin every morning when I look into the mirror! (Can’t be sure if that the glow of entering married life or.. LOL) Anyway, I do like this product as it’s sweet and easy to bring around. I’ve already packed it and was suppose to bring to Bali for my honeymoon trip but it slipped my mind..! Tsk!

(Hmm, got drifted a bit….)

Nonetheless, not to late to start when I returned because there were breakouts on my face during my trip (caused by the wedding’s heavy makeup I believe)!! After consuming 2-3 bottles I started to see slight result – my breakouts are healing, skin getting better too.. Who doesn’t love to see a beautiful self? At least I do! Although this drink sweet (might be a lil too sweet if u don’t really like soft drink) but it can be tastier if it’s sparkling!
Seriously, I  can’t help to think that at my age, I really need the aid of collagen drink to help me maintain YOUTH!!! hahaha! If I didn’t recall wrongly, an average person will need 5000mg  of collagen per day and consistancy is the key..! Just drinking 1-2 bottles a day, you’ll get smoother skin, firmer skin, less wrinkle formation.. WHY NOT???

My All-Time Favourite! *LINK TO GET FREE TRIAL INCLUDED*

What makes my day end with a blast? An effective makeup removal!

A good makeup remover can remove make up not only effectively and great for all skin type! Hassle free!

Today I’m sharing with you BIODERMA  Sensibio series of products!

Sensibio H2O

Bioderma’s makeup remover is by far my favourite product! So many competitor came up with similar, as good too, but none can compare to THIS!

A cleansing and make-up removing water that respects the fragility of sensitive skin! It combines performance and very high tolerance!! It cleanses and removes makeup from the face and eyes (Yes, no separate eye maeup remover required!), soothes and clears up irritated skin! Best of all, it’s non-rinse and give a feeling of instant freshness!!

And if you didn’t know, Sensibio H2O makeup remover is fragrance-free formula, alcohol-free, paraben-free & hypoallergenic!!

Just a little bit goes a long way!

For such big face I have, all I need is 3 cotton pad! One for each side and last one for the whole face to ensure it’s all cleaned! On a side note, this is just my daily light makeup for work. For dramatic makeup, you might just need a lil more..

In fact, I think I did a post on this makeup remover quite some time back.. you can read it from HERE..

Next up, something new!

Sensibio Dermatological Water!

img_6136

Using highly purified water that is enhanced by a perfect balance of mineral salts and oligo-elements, the Bioderma Sensibio Dermatological Water soothes skin while maintaining healthy skin cells. A remarkable ally for sensitive skin, it combats various skin reactive signs. Soothing agents such as mannitol, rhamnose and zinc also provide quick and lasting relief to sensitive skin.

Sensibio Dermatological water was developed through BIODERMA dermatology research. Thanks to a perfect balance of mineral salts and oligo-elements, Sensibio Dermatological water perfectly respects the skin’s biological and physiological characteristics and is therefore an ideal ally for sensitive skin to combat various reactive signs (dermatological procedure, hair removal, after shave rash, sunburn, etc.) and sensations of discomfort.

Its unique composition and the D.A.F. (Dermatological Advanced Formulation) patented natural complex help increase the skin’s tolerance threshold in the event of external stress.

Soothing agents (mannitol, zinc) quickly and lastingly relieve the skin. The skin is soothed, comfortable and radiant.

Use it as often as desired to freshen up skin or to remove the balance of mask left behind on face. Thanks to its isotonic formula, the skin can be air-dried with no dabbing! (Of course to show u the particles are really FINE, I SPRAYED a lot on my face so that it can be captured through my phone.. For normal cases, you won’t even feel the water..)

Last but not least, another new addition to Bioderma Sensibio series!

Bioderma Sensibio Gel Moussant!!

The Sensibio Gel Moussant gently cleanses while hydrating and soothing sensitive skin. Enriched with skin conditioning ingredients such as coco-glucoside and glyceryl oleate, it also has lipid-restoring and moisturising properties.

To give you some numbers, it helps moisturises skin (+77% hydration*) and is 100% excellent skin and eye tolerance!! Suitable for day and night use on both face and eyes!

*In vivo hydration test on the coco glucoside/ glyceryl oleate active ingredients – 2 weeks application – 10 women – France.
