What Supplements Do You Think I Snagged From Nano Singapore Shop?

Supplements are something that most people around my age (shhhh) might start looking up on since maintaining of well-being is of utmost importance. Who would want health problems to seek you out earlier in life if you had a choice? In fact, our usual diet/daily intake often do not tally to what our body requires.

For me, I shall skip the being skeptical part of supplements since I myself do need to take Vitamin C tablets due to inconsistency of eating sufficient fruits and vegetables on a daily basic. Checking out Nano Singapore Shop, an ecommerce platform that gained a worldwide reputation for affordable beauty and health supplements. With countless media mentions and of course being FDA approved, GMP certified (good manufacturing practice) and using 100% natural ingredients, led me to scroll through their supplement offerings.

IDS Clinic Pico Laser Treatment Review

I have been wanting to do face laser treatment ever since my army days, hoping that such a treatment could at least lighten my acne scars that had haunted me for years.
Since I am just lazy to do a detailed research on face lasers procedures as well as pricing, I decided to just stick back to the same skin specialist clinic which I have been visiting every few months for my keloid jabs and purchase of skin products.

Zell-V Phytogreen with 100% Organic Marine Algae Cell Factor Review

ZELL-V, a leader in therapeutic cellular therapies for anti-ageing, beauty, and optimum health has launched its first skincare range in Singapore sometime back. Being established in Germany and has its presence in over 40 countries, ZELL-V’s top selling would be its Platinum Plus Sheep Placenta Extract using a formula to provide double dose of anti-ageing effect.
Its first series of skincare range includes Swiss formulated Zell-V Green Wonder Cream+, Zell-V Plus Phytocell Serum+, Be+ range, Be Jojoba Oil as well as the Zell-V Phytogreen with 100% Organic Marine Algae Cell Factor.

“The function of Zell-V Phytogreen with 100% Organic Marine Algae Cell was to optimise cellular detox and nourish cells for greater health, beauty and overall well-being.”
I personally had the privilege to try out Zell-V Phytogreen with 100% Organic Marine Algae Cell Factor for a month. These green tablets as shown in picture below were blue-green marine algae extracts of potent nutrients namely antioxidant and C-Phycocyanin, organically cultivated in New Zealand. There was even a certificate of origin in the box containing the 30 tablets.
Basically after taking the tablets for almost a week, the most obvious result for me would be that I required less sleep to restore my energy level. In fact I even slept an hour or more later than my usual timing, yet having my normal energy level. It took sometime for me to accustom to my increased energy level and I daringly went to jog and swim after work as well.
Just like when I started the tablets which needed time to get used to, stopping it also requires time (maybe about a few days) since my energy level would drop slightly back to normal. Do note that the results may vary from each individuals and I only express my personal opinion after a month of consumption.

House Of Javanese Massage at Johor Bahru City Square

House Of Javanese Massage at Johor Bahru City Square
It was a short day trip to Johor Bahru, settling my lunch with the famous curry fish head just walking distance from Johor Bahru City Square. It was followed up with me over buying the famous wood-fired oven banana cakes from Hiap Joo Bakery & Biscuit Factory.
After a bit of shopping about, my friend wanted a foot massage and we decided to walk in to Javanese Massage located at M2-23 for one. Unfortunately, the slots were fully taken and our alternative plan was to try the full body massage instead. 
I am usually not the type that would be keen for massages and that day was no exception. The interior of House Of Traditional Javanese Massage was dim and had a rustic atmosphere from rattan and bamboo furnishing. Soon, we were led into a large room, segmented into smaller ones by flimsy looking partitions. After changing into my disposable underwear, the massager assigned to me started applying oil before proceeding on with the massage. In my personal opinion, the overall experience was perhaps mediocre as the pressure was not quite on point. I somehow did not exactly feel recharged or could feel an improvement in my well being. 
The cost of the Traditioanl Foot Reflexology (30mins) is RM48 while an hour would be RM55 for non members. The Traditional Javanese Full Body Massage (60 mins) is RM79, 90 mins would be RM116 and 120 mins is RM153 for non members. They also have other services such as Aromatic Javanese Full Body Massage, Body Scrubs, Shoulder Massage as well as Pre-natal Body Massage.

Soaking Up and Relaxing at Yunomori Onsen and Spa

Yunomori Onsen and Spa
I have been to Yunomori Onsen and Spa a couple of times so far after my first visit and I do enjoy dipping in alternating pools. Remembering the first time yuzu bath was launched, I did see a couple of yuzus in netting floating about in the water. The more recent relaunch of the yuzu bath got me and a couple of my other onsen buddies questioning where did all the yuzus had gone to. Physically since nothing was seen floating on the surface and even the fragrance of the yuzu was no where to be detected.
At least I still felt that the yuzu one was better than the sakura pool during a period of time. Besides the romantic pinkish red water, I doubt I could remember smelling any sakura scent. Anyway, going to onsen with buddies definitely makes a difference to my enjoyment as occational chit chat would kill some boredom since being alone is super boring.
I felt super dumb at one point of time when I actually locked my locker key in the locker itself and I had to seek help from the kind staff. I bet they were trying hard not to laugh. How the hell was I that absent minded that day!?
I would always enjoy taking selfies while wearing yukata since it is not often that I could wear them right? I even enjoyed taking a short nap in the resting room located through the doorway at the end of the cafe after soaking in the pool for over an hour to two. The dim lights, cozy sofa-like beds with blankets and comfortable cushions could easily bring a tired being to dream land.
More visits with buddies to Yunomori Onsen and Spa in future!

Gamma Light Mist Treatment Review at D’skin

D'skin
I arrived at D’skin that was located conveniently at Novena Square to experience for myself one of their newly launched Gamma Light Mist Treatment. This Gamma Light Mist Treatment is said to be an advanced form of treatment that could reduce inflammation and revive tired skin. 
Since it was my first time at D’skin, my treatment started off with the standard skin analysis with the aid of a machine that could analyse stuff such as the hydration level of my face, mainly forehead and both cheeks. 
After removing my shoes, I was led into the treatment room all ready to begin. I know it sounds strange but the sounds of Gamma Light Mist got me kind of excited.
My face was gently given a double cleansed before steam was used to open up my pores. As I have oily skin and often have battles with my deadly acne enemies, my whiteheads were plentiful. A yellowish gel-like mask was applied on my face which needed time to harden before peeling off. It definitely was satisfying to see so much of my whiteheads being wiped out as the mask was peeled from my face! For facial treatment like this, I do not edit my face. Do check out my unedited pictures below and you would understand what I meant. (This whiteheads removal process is not part of the Gamma Light Mist Treatment.)
Minor extraction was next and my facial therapist was gentle in case it was too painful for me to bear. I have high medium-high pain threshold anyway. A device was used on my face after my extraction and it was prickly. Most probably the effect of bacterial elimination from my face. Another device that emits purplish lights can could only be visible from the camera screen aids in the rejuvenation process.
Next comes the Gamma Light Mist Treatment which emits mist that could penetrate into the deepest layer of my skin to activate each cell’s metabolic process. The mist emitted was cooling as though I was undergoing a face spa, coating my face with fine droplets and moisturising it in the process. It was probably about 10 minutes each time on the left, right and front of my face.
The treatment ended off with an oxygenated mask which was probably my first time hearing this term. The mask was clear, gel-like and had little lumpy stuff which I have no idea about. It was pretty easy to rinse off too.  
By the end of the treatment, besides the slight redness from the extraction process which was normal, I felt an improved resilience and my skin was indeed more hydrated too. The total length of the treatment was about 120 mins and suitable for all skin types.
Thank you Brandcellar and D’skin for the invite.

Brighttonix Y10 Mouth Rejuvenation System Review

Brighttonix Y10 Mouth Rejuvenation System
Maintaining my oral hygiene and keeping my teeth white is definitely a dread for me. Although I hardly drink coffee or alcohol, tea was the main culprit that stained me teeth and it has unknowingly became my habit to order ‘teh ping’ (ice tea) at least 3 times a week.
Brighttonix has recently launched the Y10 system which is a procedure that provides immediate results in teeth whitening as well as oral cavity rejuvenation. Nowadays, results are what everyone would expect to see. The earlier and more obvious the results are, the better.
My experience with Brighttonix began with the comparison of my current teeth shade to a scale of teeth shades from 1 to 29 as shown in the picture below. Mine falls under 11 despite the fact that I did scaling at the dentist just a week before. 
I was then led to a sofa beside a pretty portable I-pad looking system with an attached disposable mouthpiece. With an initial shade and P3 (30 mins) preset selected, the nurse proceeded on to remove the plastic packaging of the mouthpiece. A special bright blue toothpaste was then squeezed along the groove of the top as well as the underside. I was asked to bite onto the mouthpiece before the timer started running in percentage.
The toothpaste was minty and completely edible as explained by the nurse. I guess that swallowing the toothpaste was one of the primary concerns that people would question. At first, like everyone else, I was a bit hesitant to swallow even the slightest bit of saliva that formed in my mouth. I ended up just swallowing it since it was safe to do so or it would ended up overflowing from my mouth.
So what exactly does this Y10 Mouth Rejuvenation System does?
It employs low power radio frequency (RF) technology that would remove stains from teeth enamel within that single session of 30 mins time frame. Think about the constant vibration that would occur between the Y10 toothpaste and the stains of your teeth at the molecule level. This collision and separation occur about 7 million times per seconds, resulting in stains being pulled out and leaving whiter teeth.
Thankfully it was only 30 mins since I get bored easily while fiddling with my phone.
This treatment is considered safer since it was painless, pleasant and do not have any post-treatment side effects at all. Best reward of all would be able to see instant results from a single session of Brighttonix Mouth Rejuvenation treatment. I have witnessed other influencers who did their treatment during the media launch and their teeth went a few shades whiter, leaving them a wide smile on their faces!
The treatment ended with me gargling my mouth and once again comparing my teeth against the scale. My teeth actually went a shade whiter from 11 to 9 even though I did scaling just a week before!
Who wouldn’t want to smile in front of the camera with whiter teeth?

Papa Poika, a English-inspired Male Barbershop at Paragon, Orchard

Papa Poika is a brand new English-inspired Male Barbershop at Paragon, under the renowned Japanese Komars Group that also brought in EC House, Ramen Champion, LA Barbershop and more.
Everyone knows the meaning of Papa, which is ‘father’ while Poika means ‘son’ in Finnish. This barbershop lies an interesting concept behind its name. It is a shop where both father and son could enjoy a bonding session while having a haircut since the mother and daughter would be busy shopping around Paragon, Orchard. (Note: Daughters could also have their hair cut here.)
I had the privilege to enjoy a haircut by the gentleman who handled my hair with precision while my friend Kenny had his done by another stylist. Basically all the hairstylists at Papa Poika had over 10 years of experience in both adults and kids haircut. Expect a personal and cosy experience as well since at any one time, the shop only attends to three adults and a kid in regards to the type of services from Precision Haircut (S$44), to Full Beard Shave (S$32) or the less commonly heard of Ear Cleaning (S$23), that uses a series of special tools without any infliction of pain.
The type of hairstyles would lean towards the ‘manly’ / musculine kind since Papa Poika’s concept of making their customers looking like a refined gentleman after its services imply. Even the shampoo used had a hint of musculinity from its minty aeroma which could rinse off your wax/gel from your hair in a single wash. For normal shampoos, usually it would be best to rinse twice to thoroughly cleanse your hair. 
Check out those unique wash basins that are located in front, as well as a lego wall with a huge ”tree” where kids would keep themselves entertertain while their dads have thier haircut in peace.
FREE handmade lollipop for every Prince Dry Cut (kids’s haircut 0-12 years old) & FREE hand towel for every Precision Haircut. While stocks last!

Thanks Kenny for jioing me along for this! You may also want to check out his blog post here.

Latest Bio Sculpture Treatment at Shou Slimming

Shou Slimming
Another virgin experience ticked off my list as I had undergone a session of the latest Bio Sculpture Treatment at Shou Slimming. Shou Slimming have 3 outlets in Singapore and the one I went was located at Velocity, Novena Square. The post will probably be a detailed process of my personal experience since I have been wanting to get rid of those annoying fats located around my lower abdomen. I want to correct others perception that being skinny does not necessary mean no ”spare tyre”. Having one made it even more shameful for me to even admit.  
Bio Sculpture Treatment at Shou Slimming
The Bio Sculpture Treatment started off with me stripping and changing into a disposable underwear provided and lying with my belly exposed to the slightly warm red light hue. As explained by my therapist, the treatment involved the use of FIR (Far Infrared Ray) technology to target localised fatty deposits as well as to stimulate the body’s natural cellular stimulation while aiding in detoxification.
There were a total of 3 different types of Nano serums used in this Bio Sculpture Treatment. The therapist did explained to me each serum’s purpose in mandarin before using each of them. As shown, the first 2 serums were used under the red hue, followed by a 10-15 mins long belly massage/torture. I have attached a video that I have recorded for reference below. It was rather painful as my belly was constantly being pressed downwards (from middle and sides) for optimum results I supposed.
The third serum used to spread across my belly was cold and gel-like. One of them could possibly be the Bio Clay which has the function to seal in the effects of speeding up overall fat-burning, skin tightening as well as to encourage overall hormonal balance.

Shortly after the 3 serums, the treatment proceeded on with a cold bandage reeking strongly of herbal extracts. My therapist did warn me in regards to the smelly smell beforehand, but I somehow loved the 草药 (herbal medicine) smell instead!
After the mummification process of my belly was completed, a device of metallic studs was belted across the herbal bandage. These vibratory stud were explained to target important vital points for effective slimming results. A ‘pain-test’ (intensity level) was performed to ensure that I wasn’t in too much of a discomfort since it could be painful to some. My advice would be to withstand the discomfort and go with the normal settings suggested by your therapist for optimum results. The timed session lasted for about 45 mins as the device would vibrate aggressively on specific areas from time to time. 
I tried taking a nap to pass time but unlike facial, I could not. The last ‘Beep’ sounded and my treatment has ended. From the pictures, my belly area was slightly red after the treatment and it took some time to subside. The entire treatment duration was about 1 hr 15 mins.
For the following 2 days, my belly was aching just like after doing 1000 situps the previous day. (Not that I could do that amount since I could barely hit 40.) Thankfully the pain subsided on the third day and my normally tight pants actually had a bit of leeway! Hopefully I do not fill this space up too quickly within the next few days.

Fennel Hot Spring Resort 茴香戀戀溫泉會館 from Kaoh Siung 高雄

Fennel Hot Spring Resort 茴香戀戀溫泉會館
It has been almost a month since I came back from my trip from Taiwan, Kaoh Siung 高雄. I spent about a week in Kaoh Siung 高雄, mainly sight seeing in the urban cityscape and night market hopping as the friend I went with was a maniac in architectural and food photography. As for me? I definitely needed to visit places of relaxation or inspiration since I enjoy blogging about such stuff.
You probably won’t find a week’s worth of Kaoh Siung 高雄 itinerary since I only intend to share about Fennel Hot Spring Resort 茴香戀戀溫泉會館, Pier-2 Art Center and Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts. Of course I had spammed enough pictures on my instagram as well as my migme account by now. 
Fennel Hot Spring Resort 茴香戀戀溫泉會館
Fennel Hot Spring Resort 茴香戀戀溫泉會館
The journey from Kaoh Siung 高雄 was long as it took about 2 hours (without traffic jam) by bus to reach 車城站. From 車城站, it was another 10 mins car ride or 45 mins walking distance to reach Fennel Hot Spring Resort 茴香戀戀溫泉會館.    
”Sichong river Hot Spring Area is located at Checheng Township in Pingtung County. The water here is Sodium Bicarbonate spring, excellent quality mineral water. The Sihjhongsi Hot Spring is considered one of the four major hot-spring areas among Taiwan, along with Yangmingshan, Beitou, and Guanziling.”
There were 2 spring options to pick from:
1) The semi outdoor naked spa 半露天景觀裸湯 which was more private and does not require you to wear swim suit and swimming cap. It comprises of Cold Spring Pool, Hot Spring Pool and Medium Hot Pool, costing NT$200 per person.
2) Health Spa Love Sea Water Therapy Spa 愛情海水療SPA which required me to purchase a swim suit and swimming cap since I did not bring mine. It comprises of  Hot Spring Spa, Spa For Children, Floral Hot Spring, Herb Hot Spring, Garra Rufa Obtuse, Cold Spring Pool, Hot Spring Pool, Medium Hot Pool and Steam Room. It cost NT$300 per person.

Garra Rufa Obtuse 溫泉親親魚池 is basically a tiny fish pond where you dip your feet in and these little fishes would start nibbling the dead skin off your feet. I even ”stole” other people’s fishes once my feet landed in LOL. 


Lockers available at a cost of NT$10 to place your belongings and their toilets have soap and shampoo as well. Many random photos below.

Overall it was a relaxing experience since the day before, I spent half the entire day cycling to the end (cargo area) of Cijin. The distance sure was crazy….definitely CRAZY in a foreign land. Not forgetting walking over 30km each day…

There were many cute little kids playing around, more like a family orientated Hot Spring Resort and the place was not exactly well maintained since there were faulty activation buttons. I should not be complaining since I paid only NT$300 for unlimited time and I probably spend about 3-4 hours in there. Hmmm maybe more hotspring and spa posts in future?
