Camqueen of the Year Crowned


Don't know if you guys saw this advert I did for the CamQueen of the Year contest?

Now the contest is finally over and can I say WOW???????

It was definitely a smash hit among Singaporean youth!! The contest generated 4.5 MILLION page views and 400,000 votes cast via facebook!!

Of course, it was a very interesting contest where contestants were urged to send in a photo of themselves before and after a makeover, so everyone was trying to prove that they can doll themselves up the best. And I must say among the contestants were many brave souls who put up their photos at... erm, well not their best. All for the prize of $5,000!

After a super fierce competition, the final winner was crowned *drumroll*:

And she is Tammy Tay!!

In case you are wondering why there's only one photo and the "after" is mysteriously replaced by bottles of Vitamin Orange/Lemon, it is not coz after her makeover Tammy looks like that. It's coz it's a...


Surprise! The contest was not judged by how drastically different your makeover made you look, but by your "before" photo. Yes, proving people can look beautiful even in their bare skin.

Like me with no makeup muahaha OK lah fine I did use some photoshopping.

Of course, health is the foundation of all beauty, and you can't be beautiful without being healthy!

Which is why Tammy was chosen, coz her glow and bright eyes say good health :)

Yes I love my make up and all my fake things ie false eyelashes and implants etc, but I also believe that having great skin (and teeth and hair actually) is the most basic rule to looking beautiful.

If you want glowy bright skin - Vitamin C is super vital.

Which can be sought from You c1000 vitamin C drinks!

The powerful little bottles contain a whooping 1000mg of vitamin C each, which your body desperately needs to produce collagen, fight signs of aging, stronger bones and teeth etc. Hiyah the health benefits of Vitamin C is super a lot lah can't be bothered to list them all out. It's awesome that's all!

The worst thing is our body does not retain or produce Vitamin C, which means you need to ingest appropriate amounts of it everyday!

And the easiest (and yummiest) way to to drink loads of You c1000. :D

When I was sick recently I drank like seriously 7 bottles in a day. Helped me recover fast! It's your best friend when you are beginning to fall sick I tell you.

Remember to get your Vitamin C for today!

Wow I'm addicted to the game on the website -_- ... Oh and also, You c1000 will be launching a new APPLE flavour soon!!

I'm excited to try!

Rapunzel Press Junket

Ok this is my favourite song from the Rapunzel: A Tangled Tale soundtrack - sang by Mandy Moore! I embedded it so that you can play the song while you read this post so got more AMBIENCE!!! LOL

So anyway here are the pics from when I went to California to watch Rapunzel way before you mere mortals (MUAHAHA) and to interview the stars!!!

I am in no way paid to write this so it's not an advert.

Flew SQ to LAX... I had a great flight there!

Press stayed at Disneyland Hotel. It's nice!

Day One... Michelle (Phan) came over and we were experimenting with the make-up + costumes etc for the next day's filming (watch video if you haven't already). Before we could finish gossiping I had to leave for the screening of the movie.

I give it... 4.8 stars upon 5!!!!!!!

Rapunzel is my favourite freaking princess!!! OK I might be a shade biased coz I like her long blonde hair. But she's funny and cheerful and just super cute and likeable. The 'prince', for once, is not a goody two shoes handsome dummy but smart and funny and is a... thief! AND HE IS SO HANDSOME WTF.

My favourite in the show HAS to be Pascal the chameleon though. Even though it's mute, it communicates all its emotions through exaggerated expressions and the changing of colours!! CUTE MAX!!

The movie is very fast-paced and makes you laugh, cry (I cried twice especially when I see the King's sad face wtf) and gasp in wonder at the beautifully animated lantern scene. Thousands of floating lanterns in 3D and some are floating towards you!! You can help but wanna try to grab it but end up looking quite idiotic grasping air.

I don't like the villain though... Mother Gothel is damn irritating!!!

The songs are just fantastic too. Who knew Mandy Moore had such a princessy voice??

I didn't really like Princess and the Frog (the last Disney princess movie - poor people... meh) but Rapunzel far outstrips it. It deviates quite a bit from the original Brothers Grimm tale but I love how they changed it. :)

Overall it's super enjoyable. I think everyone should go watch it. All the reviews I've read so far are raving about it.

Day 2 I set out to interview the voice actors and directors!!

Up till today I can't believe I met and spoke to real Hollywood stars wtf!!!

Attire for the day

Woke up super early so I decided to camwhore first!

Oh Pascal, how I love you!! 

So happy they gave us a Pascal toy each. 
Got red and blue Pascals but obviously green is the nicest!! 
(Coz red is angry and blue is sad)

Halloween themed disney


LOL more

They just can't get his nose right!! Oh wait this one's ok. Hahaha

Press pass

Waiting for my turn inside the stripey tent. There were many (real) tv hosts there too. A lot of pretty girls! *stressed max, not real reporter

Escorted to interview the directors first. They were hidden behind the black cloth!

I'd soon be sitting in that chair talking to them

Yes they are guys doing a princess movie!

Interviewing Donna Murphy who is the voice actress for Mother Gothel. She's hiding inside!

And done... Next up is Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi!!




Hahahha... I didn't manage to get pics with the rest of the cast coz we only had a very very limited precise 4 minutes with each group. When I reached Mandy and Zachary I smartened up and skipped the manager to ask the stars directly for a pic while my mic was being fastened.

They were of course really nice (impressive since they were being asked the same questions over and over again since early in the morning I bet) and chirpy and said yes!! Even told me to stand in between them wtf.

I didn't know what I expected but of course there was no paparazzi and there were about 10 people with them, some handling cameras others handling other admin duties etc. It was... strangely normal.

And they were... human. Just like me!!

When I left the manager shouted at me and said "You know you were not allowed to take pictures with them."

I was mortally afraid she'd ask me to delete (I might beg) but she left it at that. Suck on it bitch I got the pic hahahaha! On a side note Mike very angry that Zachary had his hand on my shoulder -_-

Interested to watch the interviews?? Check out the Clicknetwork video HERE!!

I was done for the day!! Back to hotel... Where I met:

Pluto Goofy!! Geez I can't believe I couldn't remember if this is Pluto or Goofy. Getting OLD!

Michelle already arrived at the hotel and she was preparing for filming!!

And I must camwhore with my completed look!!

I don't care what all the naysayers say, I think the 
make up she and I created really looks like Rapunzel's!!

Anyway my camera's soft skin mode got rid of all my drawn on freckles so I had to put more on with photoshop.

With Michelle!

I hate her** her skin is so nice and her nose is so small and her teeth are so white!!! Why so chio?? *Cue Wa meng ti wa meng ti song*

** Michelle's haters are very dumb and would take it literally so just to clarify, that was sarcasm.

Disney princesses FTW

Ok last of the camwhoring shots

Here's Michelle lying on the bed posting up the pictures we took. So efficient!

After that we went for dinner at a restaurant nearby...

Erm I only took one miserable picture of my soup...

And one more of Michelle drinking the same thing.

She changed her blue contacts to brown coz she didn't like the blue ones but she went out with Ariel's red eyebrows!! HAHAHHA She's damn funny love her!!


Ok this is the end of the pictures from the trip. But because I loved the movie so much, I got inspired to draw some of the stills!!

When I was young (like 10, 11), I used to draw Disney Princesses all the freaking time. My favourite was Ariel!! I remember I had her bedsheets and I drew pictures of the tiny Ariels on the sheets. It was so fun!!!

And I have not drawn anything in like a billion years - forgot how much I enjoyed doing it.

So I just took up a pencil and some blue-tack - just to explain I didn't have an eraser, but blue-tack works too - and started doodling:

What do you think?

Original HERE. I drew it while looking at the original on the computer. It's not traced.

I know right? All this time you thought I was some talentless bimbo.

p/s: Read this again but super fast so you end before the song does HAHAHA

p/p/s: I am deleting all comments from now on comparing my looks and Michelle's. We are not twins, not even same race - no need to compare please. I don't give a shit if you think she looks better or I look better, please keep such tactless opinions to yourself.

Magic sheets


I love make up but I don't think anyone really likes the feeling of make up on their skin.

Especially after a really long day, especially after clubbing or parties, you just want to rush home and have your face clean again without all that gunk clogging your pores!!

And when you have thick make up on like me (and if you are OLD like me), it's especially important to remove all the make up because leaving make up on overnight ages your skin like crazy!

I normally put on falsies so for me, the hardest part of make up removal is removing the falsies gently. I used to just tug them out but that's like stretching the sensitive skin around your eyes to the max.


Pulling out falsies is advisable... If you wanna age 10x faster than your peers.

Correct method is to ease them out slowly and gently with makeup remover.

So not only is it important for make up remover to be strong, it also has to be CONVENIENT!!

To be really honest I used to just use a facial scrub coz once I get home I wanna freaking sleep...

Too tired to remove make up? 
Happens to all of us

So I just use a scrub in the shower while I'm showering and be done with it! Obviously you can't use the soapy scrub around your eyes so my eyes would still be like smudgey brown until the next day. HAHA I'm so gross!

For those of you who are the amazing combination of lazy and vain, I'm gonna introduce to you an awesome product!!

Biore Cleansing Oil Cotton Sheets!!

I'm sure everyone has heard of Biore. I've used Biore's facial wash since I was 14 till today!! But I betcha didn't know that Biore is the No. 1 makeup remover brand in Japan!

And among the selection of makeup removers that Biore sells, my favourite are the sheets!!

I HATE having to pour makeup remover onto cotton pads to wet the pads then wipe my makeup off. It's so troublesome and those cotton pads are so small, then must use a few of them. And the cotton pads often leave little bits of fluff on my face. DO NOT LIKE!! Especially when the fluff gets into my mouth!

But Biore's cotton sheets come already infused with cleansing oil so you can cheat a step!!

So very easy. :)

It comes in a pretty pink plastic box that you can keep in your bathroom. And the box is airtight so the sheets inside won't dry up!! Once you are finished with the 48 sheets, you can just buy the refill pack (middle in pic above) and place it in your box!

See super convenient!!

(Hahaha actually it looks a bit like a toilet bowl from top view! :x)

Here comes my favourite bit about the Cotton Sheets - they come in BABY SIZE!!!

Ok it's actually a travel pack but I like to call it "Baby" Cotton Sheets. Coz it's so cute and small it fits in your palm!

It's AWESOME to have in your luggage for travelling, or in your bag for when you wanna hit the gym and want to remove the make up, or just to put in the car! Then you don't even need to be home to completely remove your make up :D

Now for the most amazing part of the sheets...


By moist I mean:

All from ONE sheet. Note amount of cleansing oil on the paper!!

And even though there is so much cleansing oil, it's surprisingly not oily on the skin at all. :)

(And yes my nails are hideous)

It is so powerful, even the most stubborn makeup can be gently and effectively removed!

Now to put Biore Cleansing Oil Cotton Sheets to the TEST!

Remember to first put the Cotton Sheet on your eyes for 5-6 seconds before you begin wiping.

Tadah! This is after just putting the sheet on my eyes with no wiping done.

And the sheet used for half my face! Makeup transferred from face to sheet :p

And using only one side of one sheet - half my face's make up removed!!

It felt so clean and yet it wasn't drying at all, or greasy/sticky!! LOVE IT.

I was really quite surprised that the sheets removed BOTH my fake eyelash and double eyelid sticker!! Because the sheets are so wet, I barely had to repeatedly wipe the same area to completely get makeup off. No more tugging!

I just hate having leftover eyelash glue being stuck on my eyelids and are always IMPOSSIBLE to remove. The sheets got rid of that too!! WOAH!

It is also enriched with a moisturising agent so my skin felt soft and smooth after usage - and best of all, not tight! Alcohol-free too so it's ideal for all skin types.

Awesome. :D


Ok looking at this picture I suddenly feel like the made-up side is very dirty. -_-

Nonetheless, final picture has full make up on...

Biore Cleansing Oil Cotton Sheets - if you have never tried makeup remover wipes before it's time to try, it'd change your life!!

If you are already using wipes, you can still give Biore's cotton sheets a try! The ultra moist formula ensures you remove your make up with less wiping - and that's less stressful on your skin. :D

Available in all leading supermarkets, hypermarkets and pharmacies.
