Tocopheryl acetate (vitamin E) gives skin glowing bright skin. Allantoin ingredient protect skin from external environment with soothing effect with apple, orange and honey extract giving fresh scent moisture.

How to use

  1. After face wash use toner.
  2. Open pouch remove pack film on top and bottom.
  3. Place film removed skin on skin from nose to center and lips to center gently.
  4. Remove after 20~30 minutes, tap gently for excess amount of content to absorb. 

The mask was a little wet when I took out from the packaging but completely dry after 30 minutes when I removed from my face. I guessed the essence was absorbed into my skin. It was cooling and a little soothing. My skin felt tighter and moisturized after removal of the mask. However, I felt the hydrating effect is not good enough. 

Maybe I really need the 7 days program in order to see brightening and firming effect.

Review: The Saem Natural-tox Apple Mask Sheet

I apologize for not being reviewing the masks recently as I was trying to clear the masks that were expiring since my trip in May. 

Tonight’s review is on the SAEM Natural–tox Apple Mask Sheet (Smoothening & Brightening).

This Red Apple Mask contains plant nutrition of lycopene, polyphenol and organic acid, to cleanse the skin texture and provide healthy radiance to the skin.

Pulp mask sheet with 100% natural corn does not contain Artificial color, Animality, Paraben, Benzophenone and Mineral oil.

How to use:

  1. After face wash use toner.
  2. Open pouch place onto face from eyes and nose fitting skin evenly.
  3. Take off the mask after 20~25 minutes and tap gently for excess content to absorb. 

Once opened, I can smell apple. I love the sweet apple smell. Please be gentle when opening the mask as it is quite a thin mask. It fits nicely onto the face.

The mask provides cooling and moisturizing effect to my face. I felt the moisturizing effect is not that effective but this is a smoothening and brightening mask after all. I normally prefer hydration mask. However, I love the red apple smell.

My skin doesn’t look smooth when I first removed the mask as the mask sheet was of uneven surface (like corn) but my skin looks a little brighter. Remaining essence was very minimal, hence just need to pat shortly onto the face.

Overall, it’s just a mask that smells nice

Price: ₩1,000 (~S$1.24)

Family Fun At Wild Wild Wet!

Children love water park. So do we! We always wanted to visit Wild Wild Wet at Downtown East, but just couldn’t find time to do so, although we have been talking about it for years. (OMG! Yes it was.)

We were so glad to enter for Free on 4 June 2017! Thanks to the Seeing Double promotion at Downtown East! My children were looking forward to Wild Wild Wet and were counting down for that Sunday!


We were frantically looking for identical tops and bottoms.

We managed to dress the children with an identical Hush Puppies polo tee and their school shorts. Hmm. That’s the only identical pair that they have. I have a few identical tees with Alyssa but we cannot find the same bottom. Hence, we decided to dress Alyssa and Asher with identical clothes while I dressed identically with my hubby. (This was the only time I got to wear the same as my hubby.) 

Many people were there queuing before 9am. I was seeing double everywhere. It’s rather fun doing this!

As usual for all theme parks, Alyssa had her height measurement.

So did Asher! But he failed badly. Lol!

Everyone was so excited to go in at 9am!

The emcee was getting the crowds ready to take part in setting Singapore Book of Records for the Most Number of People In Pairs Dressed Identically & win exciting prizes in the Best Dressed Competition.

But my children were too excited on The Woosh, Singapore’s Longest Inflatable Freestyle Water Slide at Downtown East, that we had to go try it out!

You know how kids adore inflatable, especially it is The Woosh, Singapore’s Longest Inflatable Freestyle Water Slide at 50 metres long!

You can woosh down on your own, with a slide or with a tube.

I’m so proud of my children climbing up the steps and slide down on their own.

Alyssa had her fun sliding down but she was too lightweight to complete the 50m. So we decided to go for second round with the tubes for the children and slides for the adults.

Asher had fun wooshing down the slide!

And we were so proud that he did it on his own!

So did Alyssa! And they wanted again and again!

That’s me wooshing down with a slide! It’s much more fun than just sliding down on my butt.

It’s time to explore Wild Wild Wet for other rides!

Click here to download Wild Wild Wet Water Park Map.

We first visited the Splash Play! Well, not a nice photo though cos too many kids love this water playground.

So did Asher!

Families with young ones can enjoy the all-new Splash Play where little ones can slosh around the low water with fun jets and water sprays.

We went to the Kids Zone next but you will see a lot of adults enjoying these water slides! Give the young ones a taste of a wilder world at the all-new kids’ water paradise that is filled with exhilarating pint-sized versions of the big rides!

Alyssa had so much fun!

Where were Daddy and Asher heading to?

But it’s Alyssa that came out first!

Here comes Asher!

He was so thrilled!

Even Daddy had fun in Kids Zone! And we have not even tried out other water rides!

A must visit for Kids Zone, especially if you have young children!

Wow! Shiok River is a must for us parents or the stressed adults who need to destress! Take a breather, go with the flow and let the trip wash away your cares. It’s a great way to escape from all the commotion and noise of everyday life.

Spanning 335 metres in length, Shiok River skirts the perimeter of the park, meandering through a variety of lush landscape that will leave you soothed and invigorated.

Remember to let your children wear the free jackets. There are life jackets for teenagers and adults too!

Tubes are optional for those who prefer to travel at their own pace. You can snooze your way through a dream-filled journey that will last as long as you want. Or take a quick dip to recharge your batteries before plunging into some of our more exciting rides again!

Look at how Shiok Asher was!

Alyssa too!

Daddy totally nailed it! Shiok till drop dead!

Mummy was busy taking photo of how Shiok they were!

Next, we moved on to Ular-lah!

But Asher was too short! So Alyssa got to sit twice, once with Daddy and the other with me.

The first raft slide in Southeast Asia, Ular-Lah is a super flume ride that offers you a chance to brave the rapids with five other companions. Ideal for thrill and adrenaline seekers, it’s the closest thing you’ll ever experience next to white water rafting!

No camera allowed up there for most adults rides. Hence, no photos but you should really give these rides a try!

Image Credit: Downtown East

There is a must try ride for all adults. I resisted initially but I was glad to try. It’s the Torpedo (the slides in orange and black). My children were too short for it (minimum height is 1.22m) and Daddy and I went as single rider while the children were at the Professor’s Playground. 

The first of its kind in Singapore, the all-new Torpedo ejects you from an 18-metre-high capsule right into a heart-stopping free fall, which propels you straight into a manic trajectory of hair raising twist and turns at mind-numbing speed of up to 70km/hr. It’s definitely not for the faint hearted!

Experience free-falling from four storeys high and twist and turn on Torpedo! I hate it when the countdown started from 5 and the door at your feet opened at 0, followed by an evil laugh while you fell straight through and off you slide.

Remember, no accessories, watches etc allowed. Nothing, except your bikini or swimming shorts. There’s a locker at level 1 to put all your items, if not, you have to walk down the 4 storeys of stairs and climb up again.

Before we entered the Professor’s Playground, it’s Yippee!, a shallow sloshing area filled with soft play equipment designed to provide a safe and fun environment for toddlers. 

My children were more keen to visit the intermediate Professor’s Playground next door!

Designed around the theme of an experimental laboratory, Professor’s Playground packs a myriad of classic fixtures such as slides, ladders, water cannons and fountains.

At a comfortable depth of 0.3 metres, it’s safe even for the most zealous child keen on exploring and taking charge of his/her surroundings. 

One thing’s for sure, playing in the water has never been this fun!

Everyone was waiting anxiously for the water pour while the bell was ringing away.

All of them welcomed the water pouring in the sunny weather.

We spent most of our time in Professor’s Playground as the children enjoyed the water and slides.

Last but not least, Tsunami combines the best of swimming pools and the sea to give you the excitement of the surf under controlled conditions. Without the hassle of choppy swells or dangerous currents, even kids can feel totally at ease in the water.

Take your time to enjoy these waves as you lie back and soak up the sun and fun.

We didn’t get to try out all the rides due to time constraint. 

And that’s the only photo that I got to take with my hubby! (We were too busy having fun with the children!)

My Take!

Definitely a fun place not only for family but for couples and friends. Will definitely revisit to try out the rest of the rides too.
Most probably, I will also try out the D’Resort (newly renovated chalet which I have heard good reviews from my colleagues). It is situated just next to Wild Wild Wet. A staycation will be good. Do check out the Seeing Double promotion for D’Resort too.

Book for Children: The Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing

My children borrowed this book from the library which doesn’t look interesting to me. The saying “Don’t judge a book by its cover” is true as this book is interesting!

This is a retelling of Aesop’s Fable “The Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing”. 

This is a Yellow Level book.

The book is easy to read.

I am skipping a few pages. Basically, the wolf was trying to eat the sheep and thinking of a way to get behind the high fence to reach the sheep.

And he managed to bluff his way through the high fence and get into the crowd.

But the farmer came back and killed a sheep!

But what was killed is actually a wolf in sheep’s clothing. 

I find it funny with this ending. But it teaches the children not to lie.

This book is recommended for preschoolers who are learning to read. This is a reader. The children can read it by themselves with the guidance of adults.

Review: Wellage Vita Red Injection Mask

Daily Masking Review: Wellage Vita Red Injection Mask

I like to try new things, especially sheet masks. However, I’m a person who likes hassle free, that’s why I like sheet masks. Hence, I initially hesitated to buy this mask as it requires 2 steps before I can use.

I read reviews that injection masks are fun, so I decided to give a try and let my kids have some fun. I bought this mask at a discounted price (<US$1).

Product Information:

This mask is a new concept that put the fresh pure powder form of Vitamin with excellent effect in the mask right before use. Vitamin C’s browning phenomenon appears in 30 minutes due to oxidation. To prevent browning, cosmetics that contains Vitamin C usually comes with a lot of preservatives.

Vita red is vitamin mask that whitens skin tone and makes the imperfections become lighter by reducing the melanin. It also protects your skin by neutralizing the increasing harmful oxygen inside the skin due to the UV rays. It also promotes the creation of collagen which is protein ingredient and increases skin elasticity.

This is a Wrinkle improvement mask pack focusing on skin aging problem with anti-aging active ingredients and Complete hypoallergenic dermatologist tested.

How to use?

Step 1. Syringe ampoule

You have to push and pop the “red stick”.

  1. Strongly push the piston of the syringe while facing up the lid to peel off the inner lid.
  2. Move the piston up and down to mix Vitamin C powder.
  3. Open the upper lid and push the piston to put the well-mixed Vitamin C and essence into the pack, close the lid and mix well.

My girl had fun pushing the piston of the syringe.

Step 2. Mask Sheet

  1. After washing, wipe off skin with toner.
  2. Attach the mask with Step 1 ampoule on the face.
  3. Peel off the mask after 10-20 minutes, then tap the remaining liquid for absorption.

I placed the mask for 15 minutes. While having the mask on my face, I did the daily routine of pouring the remaining essence out and apply on my legs. There was a lot of remaining essence in this pack. I used it not only on my calves, but my feet and my thighs. I like it that I can pour the essence out from the tube.

The mask was cooling and moisturizing. I don’t see immediate brightening or Whitening effect. However, the moisturizing effect was good. Other than that, I think it’s an extra step for me to inject the ampoule into the mask. 

Price: ₩17,800 (~S$22.30) for a box of 5s

Top tips from Angelina Ballerina author

This post was first published in Words for Life.

Top tips from Angelina Ballerina author

Image Credit:

The love of words is a priceless gift we give to our children, a gift that literally changes their lives. When my mother read fairy tales to me as a child, my imagination soared and I was transported to another world. When my father sang old Scottish ballads like “My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean” my heart sang too, and a love of music was born. I knew I wanted to write words and books some day, and when I got into college I studied literature and writing. One of my teachers was a well known writer, and encouraged me to keep writing. “Your chance will come,” he said. Years later it did, and I wrote my first storybook about Angelina Ballerina, the little dancer with big dreams.

When the first Angelina book was published in 1983, we had no idea it would become a classic series. Nine months after the book came out in the USA, I had a call from my editor in New York. “Can you think up more stories?” she asked, “Children love Angelina and the books are selling fast.” I was thrilled, and sat down to write another adventure for the little mouse. It was a turning point, and I haven’t stopped writing since.

Top three tips for reading and communicating with children:

  1. Make up stories, and encourage children to use their imaginations and tell their own stories. In our family we have a tradition of telling funny stories at the table, and now that our children are grown they are very good storytellers.
  2. Read aloud and often. Sit down and read as if you have nothing else in the world to do. Talk about the story and pictures with your child. Make it relaxing and fun.
  3. Children love songs, and will be calmed and soothed by singing before bed. Any songs will do, and children will quickly join in and learn to love singing too.

Communication Skills Milestones for Children aged 3-5 years old

As my son is 4 years old this year, I searched online for reading and activity stuff for him and came across an UK website named Words for Life.

Below is what I managed to obtain from the website on the milestones for children aged 3-5 years old.

Image Credit:

This age is key for development of speech and language and you will might notice your child using new words and phrases almost every day. They will also be asking endless questions!

  • Three years: using new words and phrases almost daily.
  • Four years: children understand and say lots of words and sentences.
  • Five years: learning to listen, understand and share ideas at school.

Milestones – By three years

Children will be saying lots more words during this time – you will notice that they use new words and phrases almost daily.  Children will be asking endless questions to help them learn and find out about the world around them.  They are often keen to have conversations with adults they know well.

Taking part
Your child will enjoy watching other children play and occasionally joining in. She will recognise the names and pictures of most common objects and love looking at books. Let her hold the book and choose what she’s interested in to talk about. Your child will be able to make simple choices, e.g. “Do you want the cup or the spoon?”

Three year olds often enjoy the company of adults and of other children.

  • Does your three year old enjoy playing and talking with others?
  • Do they ask you to play with them and join in simple games with other children?
  • Do they play more complex make believe games, e.g. dressing up?
  • Can they recognise how other people feel and try to do something about it, e.g. “Ah Josie sad. She need a hug.”

Understanding of language
Your child will understand a lot more of what is being said now.  Children of this age understand phrases like “Put teddy in the bag and longer instructions, such as “get a biscuit and your cup”. They are beginning to understand “who”, “what” and “where” (but not “why”) questions. They enjoy simple stories with pictures.

  • Can your three year old remember longer instructions and information?  Can your child understand questions using “what”, “who” and “where”? E.g. answer “Where is mummy ?”, “What did you see in the park?”
  • Does your child listen to, and remember, simple stories with pictures?

Use of words and sentences
By the age of three children will usually speak in sentences, joining four or five words together to communicate simple ideas, events or stories to others, e.g. “Me a big girl now.”  They will ask simple questions to get information using questions words like “where?” “why?” “who?”. They use up to 300 words and will refer to something that has happened in the past.

  • Has your child stopped relying on pointing to get what they want, or only using single words?
  • Does your three year old ask lots of questions?

Speech sounds: Your child has clearer speech.  You should be able to understand most of what they say, though their speech might not be perfectly clear to everyone.  Errors such as “doap” instead of soap, “boa” instead of boat and “tar” instead of car are still common.  Children of this age use little grammar words like “I, me, a, the,” and put “ed” endings of doing words, such as, “We walked” but will sometimes use immature grammar, e.g. “shutted.” Help your child to learn by saying back “Yes, you shut the door.”

Any concerns?
It is important to remember that all children are different and your child may develop at a faster or slower rate than others. If your child has a nanny, childminder or goes to nursery talk to them. It is always helpful to have information about how your child talks and communicates in other places.

Learning to talk is a complicated process and no children get it right straight away. Young children often stop, pause, start again and stumble over words when they are learning to talk. This is normal. Children will often repeat words and phrases (or say things like ‘um um’) and hesitate whilst they are sorting out what they want to say. This can go on even up until they start school.

If you are at all concerned about your three year old’s language development, for example you think that they speak less than other children their age, or are not talking in four to five word sentences, you should contact your health visitor, children’s centre or local speech and language therapist  and talk to them about your child. You can contact a speech and language therapist yourself; you do not need to go through your GP or health visitor though Speech and Language Therapy services are run differently depending on where you live. You can get free resources and check out your child’s speech, language and communication development at

Milestones – By four years

Most children of this age go to nursery. Children understand and say lots of words and sentences now. You can see them using their talking to meet new friends or to work out problems. They talk to find out new information by asking lots of questions.

Taking part
Your four year old will be able to take turns as well as be starting to share with adults and other children. He will enjoy playing with other children and start a conversation.

Your child will listen to longer stories and answer questions about a story they have just heard, for example, simple questions such as “Who did Cinderella dance with at the ball?”, “Were Cinderella’s sisters kind?”

Four year olds use talk in different ways. They use it to organise themselves and their play and they like make-believe and dressing up. They start to like simple jokes – though often their own jokes make little sense.

  • Does your child like to play and talk with others?
  • Does your child enjoy sharing books with you, especially ones with rhymes?
  • Is your child starting to be able to plan games with others?

Understanding of language

Your child will understand more and more of what people are saying.  He will follow requests and instructions with four key words or in two parts, e.g. “Get your coat and stand by the door”. He will understand “Why” questions, listening and responding to questions about experiences, events and stories, including questions about past and future events.  Games link “Simon Says” or musical statues help children develop their listening skills.

  • Can your four year old follow simple two part instructions reasonably well? E.g. “Get the big scissors and some blue paper from the drawer.”
  • Talk about a story you have just read and ask your child a couple of questions. Can they understand simple “why” questions?

Use of words and sentences
By four years old, children can explain their ideas, talk in sentences and talk about things that have happened in the past. They can use longer sentences and link sentences together, e.g. “I had pizza for tea and then I played in the garden.” They can answer questions about “why” something has happened.

  • Can your child explain where they went and what happened? E.g. the child says “Tom and Sarah and me goed park and played on swings.
  • Can they use longer sentences joined up with words like “because”, “or” and “and”? e.g. “I like jelly because it is wobbly.”
  • Are they easily understood by others?

Speech sounds
Your four year old uses most sounds correctly but may still have difficulty with “th”, “r”, “sh”, “ch” and “j”. Children of this age still find sounds within words with several syllables tricky, e.g. escalator. Errors where words have groups of consonants are still common, e.g. “bider” instead of spider.

Any concerns?
It is important to remember that all children are different and your child may develop at a faster or slower rate than others. If your child has a nanny, childminder or goes to nursery talk to them. It is always helpful to have information about how your child talks and communicates in other places.

Learning to talk is a complicated process and no children get it right straight away. Usually children have learned to talk clearly by the time they are four. By this age, usually everyone can understand them, even people who don’t know them very well. Sometimes children can be slow to develop their speech sounds, or find it really difficult, and this can make them hard to understand.

If you are concerned about your child’s speech, language and communication development, for example, you think that they communicate less than other children their age, you should contact your health visitor, children’s centre or local speech and language therapist and talk to them about your child. You can contact a speech and language therapist yourself; you do not need to go through your GP or health visitor though Speech and Language Therapy services are run differently depending on where you live. You can get free resources and check out your child’s speech, language and communication development at

Milestones – By five years

By the age of five, almost all children will be in school.  At this stage they need to learn how to listen, understand and share their ideas within the classroom.  They also need to understand words and phrases used in school that they may not have heard at home – such as “line up”, “packed lunch” and “talk to your partner” etc.

They also still need to have conversations – to share information, to make friends and explain how they are feeling.  They use talk to help work out problems and organise thinking and activities.

Taking part
Your five year old’s attention will be more flexible. Children of this age can understand spoken instructions related to a task without stopping the activity to look at the speaker.  They can focus on and listen to stories when they are sitting with their whole class.  They can pay attention and follow the rules when they are having fun playing board games.   They will choose their own friends.  They will use talk to take on different roles in imaginative play, to interact and negotiate with people and to have longer conversations.

  • Talk to your child about what they enjoyed most during the day – these conversations often include different games or activities they play with friends.
  • Does your child enjoy listening to stories, songs and rhymes and start to make up their own?

Understanding of language
Your child can follow a short sequence of instructions just by listening, rather than stopping to look at the speaker. During a conversation children of this age can answer questions and provide more information when asked. They are beginning to understand time concepts like the days of the week, morning, afternoon, day and night. They can understand more complicated language such as “first”, “last”, “might”, “maybe”, “above” and “in between”. They understand words that describe sequences such as “first we are going to the shop, next we will play in the park”. Simple stories can be followed without pictures.

  • Can your five year old listen for instructions while they are busy with something else? E.g. ask them to get their coat and shoes while they are playing (not TV or computer, as they are too absorbing).
  • Is your child beginning to get the idea of time? E.g. “Mummy will be here after lunch.”
  • Does your child understand a longer list of instructions? E.g. “First get your plate, then sit on the red chair.”
  • If you describe an object or person, can your child guess who or what you are talking about?
  • Can your child predict what will happen next in familiar events and routines?

Use of words and sentences
Your five year old can have conversations. They know lots of words and can use longer sentences that are better formed, e.g. “I had spaghetti for tea at Jamilia’s house”. They can link sentences using words like “and” and “because”. They like to talk about and explain what they are doing. They can talk to you about what they do and do not like.

  • Can your child organise their thoughts and put longer sentences together?
  • Can your child re-tell short stories in roughly the right order and use language that makes it sounds like a story?
  • Can you usually follow what your child is saying?

Speech sounds
Your five year old can use most sounds correctly. Long words like “elephant” can still be tricky, and some speech sounds such as “r” and “th” and three consonant combinations, e.g. “scribble” may still be difficult.

Any problems or concerns?
It is important to remember that all children are different and your child may develop at a faster or slower rate. Here are some signs your five year old may be struggling:

  • Do they regularly get frustrated or give up trying to tell you something?
  • Do they regularly forget the words or miss out important pieces of information?
  • Do they sound muddled and disorganised in their talking?

If you are concerned about your child’s speech, language and communication development, for example, you think that they communicate less than other children their age, you should contact your child’s school or local speech and language therapist and talk to them about your child. You can contact a speech and language therapist yourself; you do not need to go through your GP or health visitor though Speech and Language Therapy services are run differently depending on where you live.

Review: My Beauty Diary Rose Brightening Aroma Mask

Daily Masking Review: My Beauty Diary Rose Brightening Aroma Mask

My Beauty Diary is one of my favourite brand of masks. Today, I decided to try out My Beauty Diary Rose Brightening Aroma Mask. It is a brightening and calming mask.

It contains mandelic acid and sodium ascorbyl phosphate that helps to eliminate cuticles and accelerate skin renewal, which helps to get rid of dull looking skin. 

The delicate and elegant floral scent of Roses and other fresh cut flowers relieve stress and calm your skin. Additional soothing and nourishing ingredients, hydrolyzed rice protein, malvaceae and glycyrrhiza uralensis activate mechanisms that repair and deeply nourish the skin, restoring moisture and preventing fine lines, while keeping your skin healthy, flawless, soft and white.

I pulled out the dripping wet mask from the packaging, removed the white film and put the mask on my face for 25 minutes. I immediately smell rose water. Sweet floral scent, which really helps to calm me to a relaxed mode. I love this scent!

The mask provides instant moisture to my mask. It was soothing. I don’t see any instant brightening though.

Thumbs up for the sweet scent!

Review: Innisfree It’s Real Squeeze Mask – Pomegranate 

Daily Masking Review: Innisfree It’s Real Squeeze Mask – Pomegranate 

My friend bought me this mask and I forgot all about it. It claimed to be a Real Source Mask with moisture from squeezed pomegranates for skin that’s firm and supple. Sounds great to have squeezed fruits on our face.

Jeju green complex gives healthy skin. This is a 3 layer sheet that provides long lasting moisture with quick essence absorption. 

Major ingredients: Pomegranate juice (200mg), orange peel extract, orchid extract, camellia leaf extract, fruit extract baeknyeoncho

I placed the mask on my face for 15 minutes. The remaining essence in the packaging is just enough for the calves.

I thought I smell alcohol but I guess it’s not. The mask was not as soothing as other masks but moisturizing enough. My face still felt cool and moisturized even after removal of the mask.

But I guess I was expecting more from this mask.
