the making: curse

Wednesday, September 17, 2014


The date draws nearer every single second, I'm excited yet the amount of stress is madness. My previous creation, ASUNDER as some of you might know was ripped off totally by a person with absolutely no creative conscience nor business ethics, she ripped it all off. With all my rage I return with something bigger and better that I've been working on ever since ASUNDER was being ripped. I'd very much like to remain calm and generous to this ripper, for she is a poor soul with no creative brains at all but constantly seek to rip ideas off from people. After a couple years since my beloved ASUNDER and handwork have been stolen, now you poor soul have moved on to rip someone else's hardwork, to be exact one of my favourite handcraft duo artists. Shame should you.

tokyo bust

Friday, September 12, 2014

TOKYO BUST EXPRESS in the house! I’ll be discussing about bust and boobs! I’ve been invited to Tokyo Bust, the leading bust enhancement specialist with the most outlets islandwide earlier in March but only recently paid a visit. To me, boobs are just boobs. The size does not really bother me so I don’t really feel there is a need for me to do anything about them.  However, some of my friends have tried their treatments before and told me that they were pretty surprise about the results and there is no harm for me to try.
I went down to try out the treatment but honestly wasn’t expecting any results. However, I thought it’ll be good to give my boobs some massage. Although the size of my bust does not hinder me but it might be a problem to some females. Here (below) I’m explaining to my specialist, the one and only problem that I face having a not so huge bust. I’ve always encountered the, ”bra problem”. It can be very frustrating when I’m trying to get a bra that fits, it is not the cup size problem but the buckles at the back, and it is still loose even at the tightest hook. Since it is not the cup size problem, I blame it on my petite frame.
My specialist started off by explaining the structure of the breast, I bet a lot of females do not know the internal structure or what actually forms the breast other than fats. In Tokyo Bust Express they believe in natural enhancement through various methods of massage using natural soy-infused ingredients. Soybean extracts contain phyto-nutrients to stimulate female hormones and aids in optimal bust development. I’ve also learnt that that apart from just aesthetic appeal, treatments at Tokyo Bust Express are also for health purposes. It boozes circulation and helps in lymphatic drainage.  Regular massage also minimizes the chance of breast cancer.
After the examination of the breast, (which some may find it a little awkward), but do not worry, the specialists at Tokyo Bust Express are very professional. My specialist told me that I have slight sagging problem due to my weight lost over the years. I was 44kg when I first graduated from secondary school and now 40/41kg; my weight lost wasn’t due to deliberate diets but because of my irregular meals and sleep time.

My visit was at NEX shopping mall at Serangoon, the rooms are very clean and cozy. Bathrobe is provided for you to change into before treatment.
Here are my two cents on the different steps of treatment by sequence:
1.    Detox Scrub
Basically this is a simple scrub process to remove dead skin cells on the bust area so that it could absorb the essence better.

2.    Application of Phyto- Essence
After the scrub, phyto-essence is applied onto the bust area to prepare and enhance the effects of treatments later.

3.    TT push up therapy with Phyto- Essence
-Helps in toning and lifting of breasts
-Prevents current condition from worsening
-A bust-care treatment that aids in maintaining shape of breasts (maintenance)

With the help of technology, everything is made possible! This machine I call it the “wake me up” machine. It is as though waking up your sleepy bust that has been inactive. An elastic Velcro strap is wrapped around your bust and it gives of a tapping feeling, does not hurt but might feel a little ticklish.

4.    Detox-Me Senchi Bust Massage
-Helps in bust circulation and lymphatic drainage
(Detoxifying purposes)
-Stimulate on the mammary glands to enhance and firm up the breast
-Aids in preventing breast cancer and related illnesses

The fourth step and second step felt rather similar, just that the massaging here lasted longer and focuses on pressure points to help soothe lymph nodes.

5.    Bust Suction Therapy
-To help shape for a rounder and fuller bust by stimulating mammary    glands
-To re-position your breasts to reduce the "mini boob" or armpit fats between breast and armpit
- lessens gap between breasts

Last but not least, again the help of machineries is involved. A cup look alike form is placed on both breast each and a suction pressure is introduced. It goes on an interval and releases it’s pressure. I was a little worried at first that it might leave bruises or blood clot because it seems like a mild version of cupping. However at the end of the treatment I was surprise to find no marks or bruises. (big relieve)
The entire treatment took about an hour or so. Throughout, I kind of fell asleep a couple times so I guess I can say that it is a pretty relaxing treatment. At the start of the session, I was asked to stand facing the wall and a marking was drawn on the wall to indicate the level of the nipple. After the session, the same process was repeated on the same wall same marking and I was really surprise it moved up by about an inch, which means it is slightly fuller and a slight push up effect is achieved. I really wasn’t expecting anything so it was indeed a pleasant surprise. I asked my therapist if it would stay this way for long, unfortunately with just one session it wouldn’t be permanent. A couple sessions is needed in order for the bust to stay enhanced and in shape. The number of sessions varies on individuals; some might need more or less. 
My thoughts about natural bust enhancement now is that, it is not a must but it is definitely a good way in keeping the breast healthy, in shape and to promote good circulation. For the health and circulation. I might now consider going for a treatment every 1- 2 months.
Tokyo Bust Express has specially formulated bust products customized to suit different bust needs. I was given the Intensive Bust Enhancement Firming Cream Serum and the Bust Essence to be applied daily after shower. Both serum is a tad bit sticky after application so I chose to apply it only at night after shower. The serum is a post treatment, it does not produce effect like the treatments provided in the center itself but it helps maintain and boost bust health.

Here’s my specialist, Bao Hui and me. Thank you Tokyo Bust Express for the invite and the experience.

Good day ladies! Here for another skincare review. I often wonder why can’t there be a single product that does the job, why must there be so many different types of products and brands. After visiting two highly raved dermatology clinic in town and being blessed enough to be sponsored by a couple of very trustworthy skincare companies, I came out with the verdict that there will never be just one brand or just one product that works for everyone. On top of that, our skin is constantly changing due to hormonal change and aging. Finding the best combination of products that is best for skin requires a lot of patience and trials. There are so many different products in the market, you have to understand your skin condition and pick products that targets that issue. For me personally, dry and sensitive is the main issue, thus products that I have plans to use in a long-term basis have to be gentle. Another issue and the one I fear most is aging skin, though I understand that aging is inevitable and some people actually look better with age but still, the thought of it is extremely harrowing.
Aging of the skin is caused by several factors, it might be due to environmental stress or stress in daily life. It does not only happen to older women, it happens to young people as well. According to a survey by KOSÉ, the age that women first notice symptoms of aging is in their early twenties, which also means it is happening to me! KOSÉ INFINITY focuses on the aging issue, targeting problems like pore problems, sagging pores and blackheads.
I always make sure I try my products for at least a week before reviewing so whatever that is being reviewed here are solely based on my personal experience.  First up, the Pure Advance Oil Cleansing Gel, it is a gel thus it is not like liquid or oil, it takes a tad bit longer to spread across the face but it's very smooth and it is efficient in removing even my waterproof make up. Next, Pure Advance Clear Up Wash, this is probably considered the most important step for most people. The wash is finely textured and really gentle on my skin, no signs of tension or “squeaky” feeling after wash. 
(thumbs up for that!)
Cleansing is an important step so is the step that comes after; it maintains and keeps the skin hydrated. The Pure Advance Essence Lotion I is my favourite product in the whole range. 
It is a hydrating lotion that contains essence, which moisturizes skin with open pores caused by dryness and sebum, making them less visible.

It contains:
Okra extraxct(hydration)
Rose mulitflora fruit extract(sebum control)
Shell ginger leaf extract(removal of active oxygen)
Rosemary leaf water(antioxidant/hydration)
Rosemary extract(antioxidant/hydration)
Reason why it is my favourite of all is because I love how lightweight and refreshing it is. I love products that leave a refreshing feeling, and I’m not referring to the cooling sensation that some products that contain alcohol gives.
It is just pure refreshing! :D
After some freshness, it’s time for some firm and bouncy skin! The Pure Advance Serum I adjust the balance of sebum in skin that is prone to stickiness or shininess.
The Pure Advance Serum gives a slightly heavier finish than the Pure Advance essence Lotion I, however I cannot directly compare these two as they are made differently, one in gel type and another liquid lotion. But that’s the best I could describe to explain its texture.
I’ve mentioned in my previous skincare review, the importance of using a scrub and recommended body scrubs too! The amount of dead skin cells that falls off is insane, uncountable. It is essential to scrub off unwanted dead skin cells for the skin to stay radiant.
There are many different types of scrubs, to me what matters most is the size of the particles in a scrub. Some are larger, rougher and some smaller and more delicate. The Pure Advance Deep Clear Mask is compounded with both large and small particles (scrub & clay).  I have a really bad habit when it comes to scrub products, to me scrub means the harder the better, the cleaner it gets! Obviously it does not work that way but that is just my habit. I was really pleased with how gentle this product is, despite my habit of exerting a lot of force while using the scrub; it does not leave my face with red spots. I have a hard time deciding if this should be my favourite product of the range or the Pure Advance Essence Lotion I.
As of August, KOSÉ has a Trial kit available for purchase (while stocks last).  The Trial kit is perfect for those who are unsure if the products suit their skin or those who want to purchase them in travel size for travel purposes. Products come in trial size, except the Pure Advance Essence Lotion in regular size. You can visit the link here for more information about the Pure Advance Series.
IFT Pure Advance
At a very affordable price of $58, I would say it is definitely worth it! This is by far the best combination of products that that suit my current skin condition and I could purchase off the shelves without having to visit a dermatologist.

A Special Treat for you dear readers! @kosesg is giving YOU an exclusive 3pc skincare gift when you quote my name “valeriewang”, at Metro Paragon or Robinsons JEM KOSÉ (while stocks last!)

With that, I’ll leave you with a quote,

“Your face is marked with lines of life, put there by love and laughter, suffering and tears. It's beautiful.”

Aging is inevitable and harrowing to some but it can be beautiful too.
Let’s all age gracefully. ^^
