[Review] Eyebrow Microblading by MissyBrow

For all who knows me, will know that I am a very outdoor person, always running out and about. With regards to makeup, you can foget about teaching me because I will stare at you blankly, looking lost and on top of that I do not like to have any makeup over my face as I felt like as if my skin could not breathe. To be frank, I do not have the interest nor the luxury of time to colour my face daily or you may say that it is pure laziness.

Unless I need to attend dinner, I may just use the eyebrow powder to darken the brows and put on a basic, simple make-up. I am just thankful that Don just like the way I am, my naturally tanned, bare face. In fact, the family is just not used to see me having make up on.

You will probably see the lazy me walking around with a bare face and naked brows.

Before Microblading treatment

Actually, I do know that our eyebrows frame our eyes and having a pair of well groomed brows can instantly make us look better? This is the reason why getting my brows done was on my mind a few years ago but I never had the courage to go ahead with it because before I knew about Eyebrow Microblading, I only knew about eyebrow embroidery and it certainly did not leave me feeling positive about how I am going to look if I were to have it done.

What hinders me from getting it done was;
- what background does the consultant have ? Will it be the director or senior therpist doing it for me ? Will they be experiennce enough and can I trust them to do a nice job ?  Especially when it is going to be part of my face, I am extremely cautious on the experience of the therapist.

- Fear of looking "auntish" with the dark and thin eyebrows. Pardon me, I do not mean offence to anyone who have done eyebrow embroidery before. I am just having this extra worry on my mind. I would expect the consultant to be able to "communicate" with me ? And these concerns held me back for years!

Right until, Elaine from MissyBrow approached me. With 15 years of experience under her belt in the beauty industry, Cidesco certified and had worked under the prestigious, luxury brand - Chanel and Jill Lowe. She is also equipped with the skills of the latest Korean Eyebrow Microblading techniques.

It took me a while before I decide to reply her email and of course I need to have an affirmation that she knows her work. I actually asked her a string of questions on watsapp based on what a newbie would ask about Eyebrow Microblading.


Me: Is Eyebrow Microblading the same as Eyebrow Embroidery ?
Elaine: Usually embroidery uses machine and when it is done, the whole brow will be filled with one colour. On the other hand, microblading is done manually by hand and the finished effect is very natural just like as if eyebrow powder is put on with gradient.

Me: Will the process of microblading be painful ? (Simply because blading sounds like some sharp knife-alike tools.)
Elaine: During the process, numbing cream will be applied. Hence, the process will not be painful. Probably at the end of the session, there might be a little discomfort but at a really comfortable and managable level.

Me: Is microblding suitable for people with sensitive skin? For instance, the colour pigment that will be used on our skin.
Elaine: There are different levels off skin sensitivity. If you are having concerns about it, I can always do a patch test before I begin.

Me: When should the first touch-up be done?
Elaine: First touchup should be done after one month and before 3 months. The effect can last between 1-3 years depending on your skin type and how you take care of your brows.

Me: Let's say I decided not to return to do any touch up, will the eyebrows look "bald" ?
Elaine: Doing microblading does not affect the growth of your eyebrow hair. If touch up is not done, the colour will just slowly fade off.

Me: Are you able to advise on which skin type will it be more lasting?
Elaine: The effect on oily skin will not last as long as compared to normal skin. It also depends on how you take care of your brows, for people who loves to apply whitening products, it does affect in the long run.

Me: Can normal skincare routine be continued or do we have to avoid the brows for a few days?
Elaine: You can still clean your face but try to avoid the brows or avoid apply anything onto the brow for 10 days.

Me: Will I look auntish ? (LOL)
Elaine: After the treatment, the eyebrows will not be super dark or auntish looking. You get what you see after it heals. It will just look like drawn brows.

Me: I noticed there are some brownish "stains" on the brows in the picture you sent. Will microblading leaves the same as what I see in the picture?
Elaine: Those reddish brows you saw in the pictures are colour remained on the brows from the previous session and taken up-closed. If it's from far, it's hardly noticeable. Then again, the pigments used nowadays do not turn reddish nor greenish.

On a side note, after the treatment, some people will still prefer to draw on the brows to enhance the make-up. Microblading makes the job easier as the shape is already there.

Me: If needles are in used, will all the needles be new, sanitized and disposed off after every client?
Elaine: Yes. All needles are new even for touch-up of the same customer, I will show my clients before I open up the needles.

Before the start of the treatment, Elaine communicated with me on my preferences. I told her I hardly put on make up and my hair colour will usually be in a brown shade. Hence, I would prefer the brow colour to be as close to as my hair colour and as I do not follow trends, so brow trend is out for me. I want something just to suit the shape of my face and features.


She proceeded to clean up my brows and plucked out some stray hairs and started to trace the shape of the desired eyebrow on my brows. She was cautious and careful and did a little amendment to the tracing after I told her that I do not feel good with thick brows.

Look like Crayon Shing's "Thick" Brows ?

Patiently, she redrew the bottom line and told me that given the shape of my face, my brows should not be too thin else I may look older and worse, fierce especially when I do not smile.


Numbing cream was applied on the brows for 15mins after the confirmation on the shape of the brows.


The whole process was pretty smooth. I do not feel any pain nor discomfort at all.



Done ! No more bare brows and I think I do not look auntish right ?! I am loving how natural the brows looked. I left her place feeling great, without having the feel and need to put a plastic bag over my head and hide!

After the treatment - Day 1

I usually do not show photo with my hair all band up simply because I will look so bare ! Tah-dah! I think this is the first photo ever in my life I have taken and shared with my fringe banded up. And if you are wondering if I added eyebrow powder, nope. I did not but Elaine did told me on the second - third day, the brows would look slightly darker than on the first.

Day 4

There was not much pain but some mild sting on the first day but as the skin was healing, it was pretty itchy. Just bear in mind not to scratch. The scabs started to dry up and peeled.

scabs dropping off graadually

Now, I can go out with a nice pair of brows without having to spend time drawing. Thank you, Elaine for your professionalism! Elaine is a work-from-home-mum and she has a corner set up for clients who come for her treatment in her humble abode, in the west of Singapore.

One treatment for Eyebrow Microblading costs Sgd $380 and includes one touch-up ( to be done after one month, before 3 months). Elaine does have other facial treatment services too. #SupportWFHM

[Media Invite] Modus - Irresistable, Organic Quinoa Value Bowls

Whenever we walked from Raffles City to Suntec City via Esplanade Exchange, we would usually walk past "The Food Inn. It's basically the food court just right opposite Info-communications Media Experience Centre if your kids have been stopping by to play around with some of the on-site display in or outside the centre. If you still have no idea about the location, you could have spotted it along side with Burger King.


We have never thought of dining at The Food Inn because to us, it is just another foodcourt with the usual generic food stalls, selling food with pathetic portion of ingredients and at prices above hawker price plus with the limited diet Vera could take, we would usually dine in Japanese restaurants where she could have her favourite Maki Sushi or

But with the opening of Modus , Superlife.Co vested food arm, it stood out among the rest, serving healthy Quinoa (Keen-wah) Bowls, now I would not think twice about having my meals there! It's rare to find stalls in foodcourt selling Quinoa, infact Modus is the first! If you are new to Quinoa, you can read about it on my previous post and recommended by Vera's doctor to help with Vera's eczema management.


Modus is opened by two fine dining chefs (Ian Phoon, 28 and Alvin Tan, 29) , armed with a combined experience of nearly 30 years in the fine dining industry, who wanted to cook tasty, nutritious foods at a value-for-money price for everyone to enjoy. They aspire to create an exquisite sensory experience through the use of precise culinary techniques in the crafting of each dish without being pretentious. They believe that every dish has their own balance, and balance is their modus operandi.

They love the versatility of quinoa, crunchiness of fermented vegetables and the health benefits that come with it. Hence, they started an organic quinoa bowl concept right at the heart of the CBD area.


Healthy food are no doubt expensive BUT at Modus, I guarantee you the bowls are value for money, generous in their serving, healthy to the body and pocket friendly!

5 types of Quinoa Bowls to choose from


Modus' very own fermented vegetables, completes the meal with high probiotics which is beneficial to both our immune system and gut health.


With just SGD$7.50, you get a bowl of tasty and nutritious Quinoa Bowl, with choices of salmon, beef, pork and chicken to choose from and add $0.50 for a poached egg.

Healthy Quinoa Bowls

The Chinese Bowl

Deconstructed Kung Pao Chicken, Sauteed peppers, Homemade Thai Style Pickles with Organic Premium Hondashi Quinoa

The Korean Bowl

Sauteed Beef & Onions, Homeamde Korean Kimchi, Marinated Sprouts, Fried Wanton Skin with Organic Premium Hondashi Quinoa

The Thai Bowl

Thai Basil Pork Shoulder, Homemade Pickled Green Mango, Marinated Sprouts, Kao Kua

The Japanese Bowl

Aburi Salmon, Tsukemono, Sauteed Crabmeat, Corn Kernals and Furekake

I brought along my company of the night, who had happily ate up most of my sample bowls and asked for more! I hope she did not attack the bowls from Jenn when I walked off.

Out of the 5 bowls, I decided to give Korean Bowl a go ! The Kimchi tasted just right for my liking without being too overwhelming in the taste and the beef slices were tender.

Her expression says it all, it's simply "Happiness in a bowl" ! We will be back for more !

Quinoa Bowl with Honey Wings + Broccoli

Pull the party poppers with me please! My 21 days of solo parenting finally came to an end LOL ! Say yay to more Quinoa dishes as Don lugged back a few packs from Melbourne. So here it is !

Today, we took a break from our revision, hit the park for some cycling and as usual, dinner had to be a fast and easy due to time constraint. Good time to clear the fridge as well with the remaining CP Honey wings and half a floret of broccoli. I cooked the quinoa over the stove for about 15mins. Bring to boil and simmer in low heat, turn off the fire after 15 mins and place a lid over. Let the quinoa sit in for another 15mins to cook.

You can roast a chicken or steam a chicken and shred it if you do not want to use CP Honey Wings. The lazy me just want to heat up, stir fry the broccoli and top the quinoa with some pork floss. That's for the big kid Xav while Vera had hers without the pork floss.


Below are some quinoa dishes, I am trying to grow these recipes to document the gluten-free diet Vera is under going to keep her eczema flare well under control). Read about our Eczema Management.

You may wish to get more quinoa ideas from here:
- Baked stuffed capsicum with cheesy quinoa

Marshall Cavendish Education - P3 & P4 Maths Coaching Workshop

Math, being one of my most hated subject, I struggled to pass both my Additional Mathematics and Elementary Mathematics and not to mention during my three years of studies when I did my Diploma in Marine Engineering. I did not fail any modules, just that I did not pass with flying colours.

For Xav, we sailed through P1 and P2 smoothly without having much difficulty in managing Mathematics. We were satisfied with his grades for Math though it could be better or probably aced the papers if he was not careless.

I did not send him for any tuition or enrichment classes as I do not believe in loading him with classes for subjects which I could teach him within my ability. What I did was letting him practise using assessement books and past year papers on a daily basis. Afterall, Math is about understanding the concepts and practising.

Occasionally, I will ask for some "time-off" from Don so that I could attend workshops organised by Xav's school and external workshops for parents to help better in coaching the kids in their work. I feel the need to equip myself with the knowledge to guide him better.

Over two Saturdays, I sat in a Parent's Workshop [ P3 & P4 Maths Coaching Workshop] conducted by one of my favourite publisher- Marshall Cavendish Education. The reason why I was there, the kia-si me started to get jitters as I realised that the difficulty level for Math is slowly getting more and more challenging, especially so in solving Heuristic problems, which is my worst nightmare and I seriously hated to deal with it.

The workshop basically covered topics like:
- Whole numbers
- Fractions
- Decimals
- Geometry
- Measurements
- Heuristics

Let's me share some of the tips on Whole Numbers. How would you say 22345 to your child ?

If you have been reading out the whole number as "2,2,3,4,5" you had better stop this habit and read out in words instead "Twenty-two thousand, three hundred and forty-five". Get your child to read out in words too if they have been reading like the way you do. It allows them to learn the place of the numbers better.

Learning can take place anywhere! Supermarket is a good learning ground. Get your child to look at price tags, weigh the vegetables and get them to read out the value in words.

You can also spot number car plates and get your child to think on the spot. For instance, 2478, there are several ways to make it fun. It's so common around us and I did not think of it. This is good to keep the brain thinking constanttly.

1. Ask your child to read out the number in words.
2. Ask what is the place /value of each digit.
3. Ask what is the sum of the four digits when they are being added up. Great to train their mental calculation ! You can ask them to multiply as well!

Ms Dhillon highlighted the common mistakes made by the kids as well.

Weak Area #1 Common problem is always the "hypen", comma and "and". I did not know that they will be penalized too if they forget to write or if they put it at the wrong places. Using her rich teaching experience, Ms Dhillon pointed out which are the "weak areas" for students and the type of common mistakes she had came across.


Tip #1 Using back the same number as above "22345". Using the Rule of 3 (Refer to the bolded part), if it's before the 3 digits, use a comma, if its inside the 3 digits, use "and".

In words: "Twenty-two thousand (comma), three hundred and forty-five"
In numbers 22(comma) 345 and not 22345.

Then again, it depends on the one marking the papers. If they are lenient enough to close one eye or if they want to nitpick on this and fault the child. For me, I would rather drill Xav and let him learn the right way early to make it a good habit for himself and Vera if I can instill in her before she starts official school.

Weak Area #2 Spelling Forty as "Fourty" and Ninety as "Ninty"was one of the areas pointed out. I remembered Xav made the exact same mistakes not once in these two years and we were told that you'll be surprise that even older kids have the same problem.

Tip #2 : Do not over-pronounce "Fourty" and if possbile, get the child to read out the sentence which they wrote and hear if they sound right.

The understanding of the basic concepts is very important. I came across this in Xav's textbook but I did not know how to explain to him because I, myself cannot understand the basic concept behind how the answer is being deprived. I was only taught the old fashion way of just multiplying and carry up without being taught on the concept why. Now you see why I could not explain and probably it also explains why my math foundation is so weak. It is tedious with the renaming but it teaches the basic concept which the kids were being taught and explained on numbers with renaming.


We were also taught on Heuristics, to read and identify which methods could help to visualize better so that it makes it easier for the kids to see. These are a few methhods:
- Draw a diagram / model
- Guess and Check / Working Backwards
- Look for a pattern
- Listing
- Make a supposition
- Solving part of the problem
- Simplify the problem

Then, we were tasked to work in groups on different Heuristics problems and shared how we solved them.


I did not find it easy at all, so what do you think it will be like for our kids who are only nine or ten years old to solve such problems?  Never throw them the problems and leave it to them and expect them to solve by themselves unless they know how to. If we find it "daunting" to solve, it's exactly the same way how our kids will feel.

The parents in the workshop, some could solve but not using the fastest, time-saving method. Time factor is a very important, the kids need to do it fast and accurate during the PSLE exams. Hence, it is good if we can start training them early.

Look at the question below, go ahead and laugh at me but I really did not know how to do it.  This is the typical kind of question that always either made me shut off otherwise, I will list the letters until I reach the 57th position. But what if it's not 57th position but at a 156th position, which is much higher? Am I going to waste my time listing? I was so glad that I learnt how to solve this question using the right method, in less than 30 secs.


At the end of the day, Ms Dhillon emphasised that it is not all about getting an answer for the questions but more of the process of getting the answer and understanding the concepts.

Yes, back to the basics and I am ashamed of myself that I did not even know how to count squares properly, until we were taught how to distinguish a partically shaded square to be counted as one, half or zero We got to hands on as well, identifying the most effective way in counting the area of an irregular shaped object.


If we are able to find the relation wtihin the question itself, tthe problem can be solved easily.


By the way, this is not the first time, I am attending Parents Workshop organised by Marshall Cavendish. I have attended one Math Heuristics Workshop conducted by Ms Peggy Foo when Xav was in Primary One. She is one very engaging trainer and her workshop is never boring. You can also hope over to Mummy Ed's blog to read on the recent workshop she attended on Stretching your child's Mathematical Abilities.

Apart from Mathematics, you can also read on Mummy Christy, who blogs at KidsRSimple on:

Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf - Newly added All Day Breakfast Menu

[ Media Invite]

It was great to have sweat it out after having this flu symptoms in me for a few days. I met up with Mama Jenn from Mylilbookworm for a jog around the vicinity of Promenade before we head for our brunch at The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf at Suntec City.

I did not even realise there are two stores within Suntec City itself and we eventually found the other outlet at Basement 1 at the fountain of wealth vicinity.

CBTL @ Suntec City #B1-132

Now patrons can find these new addition on the All Day Breakfast Menu (Halal Certified) ! We ordered these dishes that were new on the menu and shared among ourselves. I kid you not, we were filled to the brim. Let me bring you through the new dishes, beverages and dessert.


Served with a generous amount of dried cranberries and roasted almond flakes. The dressing is just nice over the fresh and crisp leaves, it will make you wanting to go for more. Oh, the chicken slices are not dry and pretty nice to chew on. Should you decide to go for a filling yet light meal, go for this healthy choice, Smoked Chicken Salad.

To be frank, I hardly take greens but I do make Xav and Vera takes them. But I am loving this ! It was quite appetizing.

Smoked Chicken Salad - $11.90

If you want a heartier meal, go for the pastas! I ordered Creamy Seafood Fusilli, it was a tad disappointing. I placed the order and opted for Fusilli but sphagetti was served instead.

The prawns and scallops were juicy and the dish was served with sprinkled parmesan cheese.  The mustard cream sauce was creamy and heavy but the taste was bland. The  cheese toppings could have been more generous. We have to ask for extra cheese and chilli flakes to spice it up. I do understand that different chef produces a different taste somehow but I hope they can improve on this dish.

Creamy Seafood Sphagetti - $14.90

Jenn ordered Mediterranean Sandwich. It is a fact that I hated to eat egg yolks, totally not a fan of it. I will usually removed the yolks and eat just the whites, unless it is soft boiled eggs which I will drink it up together.

The yolk ! I placed the whole yolk into my mouth, sank my teeth into it. Guess what, I told Jenn on the spot, the yolk was nice and soft and it did not taste "bitter" ! I actually took the whole yolk with no complaints ! You got to try this !

Mediterranean Sandwich was served with some sauteed mushrooms, vienna bread topped with spinach, feta cheese, turkey ham, tomato slice. The vienna bread was soft and flavourful after soaking in the flavors from the eggs and hollandaise sauce. It tasted like bread pudding but a much nicer version as I always find bread pudding to taste much sweeter.

Mediterranean Sandwich - $13.90

We were sipping on the beverages as we ate. If you are a fan of chocolate, go give this a try. For a limited period, grab this before it's gone, from 2 March - 24 May 2017 only. I opted for Maxican Chocolate Ice Blended, it was rich and aromatic yet not too whelming in terms of sweetness. Opt to go without whip cream if you do not have a sweet-tooth.

If you like to have some coffee kicks, go for Mexican Chocolate Latte. I give my vote to the former.

Top: Mexican Chocolate Ice Blended
Small $7, Regular $8, Large $8
Bottom: Mexican Chocolate Latte
Small $7, Regular: $7.70, Large $8.20

We indulged our tastebuds with a slice of Mexican Chocolate Cake with Cinnamon Mascarpone Frosting.  The combination of Cinnamon dust, cheese and chocolate was just nice, it's not too sweet nor heavy. Am sure this slice is set to make a great after meal dessert ! A whole cake can be purchased at $59 SGD.

[Reivew] Canon HD FotoJournal

Keeping memories, which is your way? These are some of the ways I believed some of us used to do. From puchasing thick, bulky albums to contain the 4R hardcopies, stashing the thousands of shots (softcopies) into a portable hard disk and forgot all about them simply because out of sight, out of mind. On top of that, if the hard disk is corrupted, bid goodbye to all the memories.

As compared to the option of keeping the photos in the hard disk, I thought it would be a better idea to scrap the photos into layouts. For my hobby sake and one of my ways to de-stress, I love scrapbooking. I would print out the photos and make them into layouts.

At least, Xav will still flip through the album and got to look at his photos. But sad to say, my scrapbooking tools and papers are now totally thrown into the cold palace due to the lack of time.


As time past by, I could no longer afford to sit down and craft the whole night away. Layouts soon got simple and more simpler than before.


Apart from scrapbooking, I have actually started to create photobooks 8 years ago. I got myself started with 2 albums for our honeymoon trip in Hokkaido and Xav's first visit to Hong Kong when he was 9 months old, with FotoHub. Personally, I prefer it to that of those bulky albums. And you know what, after 8 years, these three albums still looked the same as 8 years ago! The colours remained, nothing fades off.


Recently, I had an opportunity to review Canon HD Fotojournals . I created two sets of softcover Fotojournals measuring 10" by 10" and 8" by 12", with 20 pages each respectively using FotoIdeas

Working on the FotoJournals at the comfort of my home, all I did was:
- Visit Canon eshop to make my purchase, select the size of my preferred FotoJournal, FotoHub sent a voucher code via email and I would use that to enter when I need to submit my e-book for printing.

- Download the FotoIdeas Software. Inside the software, it contains a range of templates, layouts, frames, fonts and etc. Go play around with it ! I am not a very tech-savvy person but this software is pretty user friendly ! I just had to import the photos which I have selected into the folder.

I did not download any other fonts of my own, partly it was because I was feeling so lazy but hey, the fonts in FotoIdeas Software were good enough for me!

Font selection

- I was spoilt for choice to choose from the many layout options. After selecting my preferred layout, I simply just need to drag and drop the image into the black box. The software allowed users to do image enhancement too.

Layout selection

If you would love to, frames can be added to make the photos stand-out from the background.

colour frames selection

- Spot those "caution sign" at the right corner of a photo, it actually prompted me to take note on the low resolution of the photos.


On the other hand, the software will prompt me again with regard to the low-resolution photo when I re-log in to continue with my project. A little reminder here to SAVE your project as you go along the way. I had to redo the album all over again when I wanted to save the project which was almost completed. I hit "save" and it was unfortunate that the software had to die on me.


Re-do and submit for order, I received an email with a link to the PDF for a preview and check if all the pictures were in place and should I decide to change my mind to make any changes at the eleventh hour, I just have to click on "Disapprove"

Within 5 working days from the day I submitted the project, I received a SMS notification on my mobile that my albums were ready for collection.

The end product was AWESOME! I created the 10 by 10" Fotojournal with pictures from Pulau Ketam while the 8" by 12" Fotojournal was used to keep memories of our US Road Trip.

Canon HD FotoJournal - 10" by 10" and 8" by 12"

The cover page did not look a bit like a softcover at all ! The cover is thick enough for Vera to handle and flip through, without having the fear that she may crumple the FotoJournal.


Some of my favourite prints from the two albums. I love how I can stretch one picture across to make the front and back cover.

If you do remember, I did mentioned about of low-resolution pictures prompted by the software earlier? The pages turned out great and colours were vibrant ! True to that of what I saw on the screen during editing.

Prices are steeper as compared to the ones I made previously but you are paying for quality. More to come as I can work on it at the comfort of my home instead of rushing out the entire project if I were to do it outside! I am planning to work on my Taiwan and Khao Yai trip soon ! Thank you again Canon Singapore !
