Skin Whitening by Premier Clinic


I was over the moon when Premier Clinic invited Sabrina & I over for aesthetic treatment
Boy, I have been dreaming of getting aesthetic treatment done since years ago
Has been yearning for fair skin
but evidently it is not in my gene
and my "I-need-sun" attitude is doing no good to my skin

and here they are
with their tip-top hospitality
offering us myriads aesthetic treatment


Kay welcomed us once we stepped into the clinic
ushered us into the waiting room

The waiting room

After much discussion / consultation with Dr Elaine
I've decided to do a face treatment :

Carbon Laser Peel for Skin Whitening

Dr Elaine is of great help
She is honest with my skin condition
(which is utterly awesome)
She pointed out parts of my face that should be improved in order to look more radiant
I (totally) have full confident in her to handle my skin

Consultation with Dr Elaine
So,
What is Carbon Laser Peel?

In short, they apply a thin layer of carbon on your face
and use laser on your skin
the carbon will absorb laser better
while laser aids in new skin cells rejuvenation
which, the new cells are brighter and more vibrant

at the same time
vacuum will be held close to the laser-ed area
and suck up the carbon as well as old / dead skin on the surface

The entire process is painless as numb cream is applied prior to the treatment

Applying anesthetic cream

Laser treatment in progress + carbon on my face!

What you can expect :

Your skin will be brighter & more moisturized right after the treatment
but usually it takes 4-6 treatments (once per month)
to show better result

How much per treatment?

RM1000 per treatment
it is advisable to enquire latest pricing!
who knows you'll get discounts right =P
*wink*

Here's my before & after picture!
very satisfied with the results
(no photo editing done on my skin)

As you can see
before the treatment
I have serious blocked pores issue on my forehead
and dry skin generally

After the treatment
the blocked pores are less visible on my forehead
(by right they have to extracted for better results)
Skin quality improved in general
softer & smoother

*happy*

ps : pardon my uneven eyelashes =P


More after-treatment pictures :

Happy with my skin now though there are still some scars and large pores left
Finger crossed this effect will last longer! =D



Laser treatment might make your skin drier for the first few days
hence it is advisable to avoid sun / use sunblock
and moisturize your skin thoroughly
and you will be fine!

Habitatt Temporary Tattoos
















For someone that has secretly yearning for tattoos
but you are chicken / timid enough not to do one
here's the solution for people like us !

a temporary tattoo design store in Kuala Lumpur that produces fine products

need not to worry whether the tatts will be toxic to your skin or whatsoever
they are made from soy-based ink 
and its safe even for your pets apparently! 

Been there, done that, used them
Perfectly safe and easy to use
so much chio-ness when you have a tatt on your skin
HAHA

So Habitatt has been really nice to me
sent me a lot of tatts for my photoshoot 
fell in love with the tatts instantly
couldn't resist not to bring them along for my trip as well!

There you go
professionally packed
Really love this minimalist packaging concept =)


Look at these gems!


It's really easy to stick on your skin
what you need is :

1. Small Wet Towel
2. Patience

Follow their instruction at the back of each tattoo
and you will see the results on your skin after a few minutes!

So I was told that the tatts are water resistant
can last up to 3 days or more

REALLY water resistant.
I've been out in the sea for my surfing lessons
and they still stuck on me like they are part of my skin already

some tatts last around 3-4 days
but most tatts can last up to 1 week
especially if you stick them on areas that you don't really encounter a lot
pretty good tattoo

there was once I want to wash off the tatt
I have to (literally) scrap it off inch by inch 
this shows how strong the tatts are on our skin!
totally in love!

here are some of Habitatt on my skin!








Still have a lot tatts with me actually
who wants to buddy-tatt with me now 
*smirk*

Rooftop Cinema, Perth Australia


When I was planning for my Perth trip
I spent most of my time planning it through Pinterest
Trust me, Pinterest has everything interesting in the world
and I'm really proud to say I actually know Australia better than The Man now (LOL)
Thanks to Pinterest

"Yes, he does not know Australia has Rooftop Movies" 
(totally old uncle-fied haha)

So I went to the land down under with my sister this time around
and we super-kiasu prepared well by booking our tickets early
THANK god we booked it early because it was sold out the day before
and we were really lucky because they only screen during summer / certain months!

and here it is!
the entrance is not very alluring so we shall skip that part
however, it is a whole new experience on top of the building!
we had a spectacular view of Perth CBD's skyline =D

"I was already ecstatic by then"


Tickets are sold at 15aud per pax (book via online)
but if you buy it on the day itself, it will be 16aud


So the front half is the beanie bags area
and the 2nd half is the beach chair area
we reached there 1.5hr earlier
to get a good seat! 
(first come first serve basis)

as a newbie here
we did not bring anything 
but actually most of the people brought their own blankets
and junks and drinks
really good idea
its windy at night and we were freezing!


we got a seat at the 1st beach chair row
probably one of the best view that we can get
won't be blocked by anyone =D

Cheers!
and need not worry
they have plenty of food stalls too

pizza
chips
popcorns
chocolates
drinks
alcohols

prices are very reasonable too =)


the bar area for food and drinks before the movie starts


 another view of the rooftop cinema area


If you have time
I would suggest you to reach before 7pm
to view sunset as well
it was splendid really =)
and its romantic!

and the night comes
8pm sharp
the movie started =)


we had fun really
one of the best thing that I've done in Perth
can't wait to do this again in Melbourne with The Man!





RoofTop Movies
68, Roe Street,
Perth WA 6000
Australia.

we spent most of our time in Tadom Groove

we get to relax and unwind in the lake
sitting and kayaking on bamboo rafts
or sit back and relax on floating bamboo chairs

Nearer to the tent area
there's Tadom Splash
where you get to be Tarzan, jump and swing yourself with a rope and dive in the lake
or to literally dive down a 5 meter platform
it felt like free fall
spiked up my adrenaline like nobody business =P
