Feeling really happy to have one of this cook book as it contains many wonderful bakes such as Cinnamon Buns, Rosemary & Macadamia Nut Loaf, Banana & Walnut Loaf, Muffins, Bagels and savoury cakes! I hope i can really bake at least a successful muffin soon.. I have never attempt baking at home and that explain why I couldn't even roll up a small amount of flour in the workshop.. =X

So the baking demo was presented by a wonder mama, who had many many years of experience in the kitchen, and also a loyal staff of Panasonic. Very fortunate to be able see her cook and to taste what she have prepared for us that afternoon!

LPG Endermospa from France has opens its door right here in Singapore. It is the world leader with over 28 years of experience in cellular stimulation, with exclusive 100% natural and non-invasive slimming and anti-aging technology, serving hot celebrity such as Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lopez, and even Shu Qi at the Cannes Film Festival. LPG Endermospa has represented in over 110 countries with exclusive spa centres in over 10 countries!

Known for its effective patented Cellu M6® technology, LPG® offers efficient skin-friendly beauty treatments that have no side effects. LPG® is honoured to be the lifestyle partner of the stars at Cannes Film Festival for five running years, where Hollywood’s top A-listers are advocates of its red carpet endermospa treatment.

It's no longer about restoring a youthful appearance at any cost. Today's aesthetic medicine is about mixing the best scientifically proven techniques together to create risk-free, results-driven procedures. LPG Endermospa does just that - a responsible and all-natural approach to beauty that has proven to the world to be 100% safe and effective. It has set up its elite network of spa centres around the world - the Spa Byblos in St. Tropez and the Cras Montana in Switzerland to name a few - and today, it has landed on the shores of Singapore.

Based on the principle of mechano-stimulation, LPG's techniques awaken dormant cells, reactivate their natural mechanisms, and deliver results to women who refuse to alter their personality. You are guaranteed the most spectacular results day after day, and these are validated by aesthetic experiences and numerous scientific studies.

Treatment are said to be painless, non-aggressive and non-invasive ultra-customised programmes for a slender body and radiant face!

Endermologie reactivates cellular activity by mechanically stimulating your skin (MÉCANO-STIMULATION) using a pleasant and non-aggressive technique. It treats different target tissues and has a wide variety of uses. MÉCANO-STIMULATION* is an action principle that is recognized and proven by the scientific community. Mechanical stimulation on the surface of the skin sends a signal deep down to the cells (ex: fat cells and fibroblasts) to provoke a physiological response (ex: activation of collagen and elastin production or activation of lipolysis). The treatment is performed by a professional using CELLU M6 and MOBILIFT M6 devices from LPG. Equipped with Rolls (rollers) or Lifts (flaps), the treatment heads gently grasp the skin tissue and target different areas of the body and face using the 100% natural MÉCANO-STIMULATION technique.

New body Endermologie® is the only technique that boosts the release of natural stubborn fat by 70%*. The treatment is delivered by a treatment head equipped with independent motorised rollers (a LPG® patent). Its wide range of settings delicately works on the skin’s surface to release stubborn fat as well as reactivate the natural lipolysis and blood and lymphatic flows. The rollers’ various rotation directions also enhance the curves of the figure and firm the skin (collagen and elastin reactivation).

The latest generation of New Face Endermologie® is the only technique in the world that increases the natural synthesis of hyaluronic acid by 80%*. Soft and light micropulses on the skin’s surface, when combined with sequential suction that sets the depth of action, boost the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. The skin is clarified, replenished, redensified and it restores a healthy and youthful appearance.
* Scientific study involving facial biopsies on 20 subjects by the Dermatology Department at the University Hospital of Besancon (France) under the supervision of Prof. Humbert, 2013.

Till today, over 200,000 women and men are experiencing this patented technology daily. The group has its headquarters in Valence, France, and in addition, a premise in Sophia-Antipolis which houses a prestigious Parisian showroom and regularly welcomes VIPs, stars, and athletes.

Thank you LPG Endermospa for having us in your opening celebration!

With the pretty girlfriends!

[Movie Review] O.T Ghost Overtime

Thank you Clover Films for the invitation to O.T Ghost Overtime preview screening at the newly opened Golden Village (GV) Suntec City Mall. A Thai horror movie that contains both scary scenes and at the same time humor. My boy and I had a good laugh at some parts and in between. Overall an enjoyable show to watch.

Movie plot: Three partners (played by Ananda Everingham, Chakrit Yamnam and Ray MacDonald) run an odd company and are one day hired to do a wedding party at a luxurious old hotel. This hotel was said to be one of the most haunted hotel in ASEAN.

Brief Synopsis:

(O.T. Ghost Overtime continues the story from film O.T. in the omnibus 3AM.)

After being spooked by the ghosts in their office, Karan (Shahkrit Yamnarm) and Tee (Ray Macdonald) have made it out alive, though they now suffered hallucination and paranoia. They can’t use the elevator, and they have to constantly checking if the person standing next to them is actually a human and not a ghost. But still, the two bosses still play ghost-pranks on their employees. This time, they’re joined by a new partner Badin (Ananda Everingham). They tease and spook the staff who stay late in the evening to claim overtime. But things always get spookier late at night in this unusual company. This time, together they will have to rescue the company from a critical condition while experience unexpected events in their own office. Their staff who loves working overtime will be part of this misadventure.

Sukhapat Lohwacharin who act as Neung is such a funny guy in the show right from the start! Super good acting from him.

In the show, unfortunate things happened in the office, 
and creepy things returned haunting people after working hours..

but things did not just happen in their office.. bigger problem awaits them in the old, gigantic hotel - for a project they have to work on..

These two male lead do look alike.. making it difficult to differentiate who is who at first. 
Try guessing who's good and who's not, who's the master behind the big prank!

Apart from the scary moments, viewers can also enjoy watching these two babes starring in the show! Plus points for the movie! :)

Although I personally dislike prank that involves sacrificing life, all those pranks were cleverly plotted. Viewers can expect heart throbbing moments by the sudden prank attack or horrifying ghost appearance. Too much pranks going on one after another, no one knows if what you see is a real ghost or a human just having fun, not until you've watched till the end! A totally different kind of horror film.

Thanks to the media invitation to the opening event of d’skin, one of the leading skin treatment centres in Singapore! Opened its first outlet at Kovan, d’skin is bringing its arsenal of top-grade equipment and tailored services to the heartlands, offering skincare treatments that run the gamut, from anti-ageing to skin tightening, pigmentation disorder, acne and pore reduction. Other outlets are also coming up over the next year.

d’skin focuses on using high tech medical-grade equipment to achieve desirable results, which are safe and effective. Combined with the expert techniques and healing touch of their therapists, d’skin is the place for a total skin rejuvenation, and to start a journey of maintaining long-term fitness for our skin.

The prices begin at reasonable prices from S$68.

d’skin has brought in Soft Plus, a standalone PC-powered skin assessment system which are able to track the skin’s pH level on top of tracking other important indicators like hydration, sebum, elasticity and melanin. Maintaining a balanced pH level is of utmost importance as it can help one achieve healthy skin and eliminate woes such as acne, wrinkles and inflammation.

With the addition of Soft Plus, d’skin continues to stand at the forefront of skincare technology. Soft Plus joins an array of high-end equipment d’skin has invested, which are endorsed and used by medical clinics and doctors. They include Lovely from Alma Lasers, LPG and eStyle & Velashape from Syneron; the world leader in medical graded beauty equipment. These solutions lend the skin treatment centre the ability to treat a variety of skin conditions. For every customer, the skin therapist will conduct a thorough skin diagnosis and generate a report, which is then used to track the client’s skin age as well as progress following every treatment.

“Soft Plus goes a long way in enabling us to uphold our mission of helping customers achieve optimum skin health. After determining the skin’s detailed profile, our skincare therapists are able to recommend very effective treatments. To ensure better results, we couple the treatments with our own array of skincare products under the d’skin brand of Japan and Europe formulation. After 13 years of research and treating countless clients with pigmentation, sensitivity, premature aging and acne skin conditions, we realise that it’s not just the machines alone or the product alone that helps the clients; it’s the knowledge and combination of handwork, machines, products, and that is what d’skin brings to all its clients.” says Joyce Chu, D’Skin’s Deputy General Manager.

I feel really pampered in the gentle hands of one of their sweet therapist who ensure i feel comfortable at all times and also explain to me about the various steps and functions she is going to take throughout the session. =) 

My skin's hydration level is really bad..

Checking on skin's Keratin (type of protein) level,

A final report will be shown after all the respective examines,

Following after is a slip of the personal skin test report printed out. The good thing about it was having the system to tell us the areas that we have to improve on or things that we should avoid doing in our daily lifestyle.

This whole procedure only takes about a few mins and results are out instantly after! Very impressive technology!

Was given CO2 Gel masks (suitable for all skin types) to try out and each box comes with a mousse. The mousse works amazingly that dries up the mask for easy peeling after 20-30mins.

"CO2 gel mask is an effective mask treatment for refining skin texture, face slimming and brightening."
