21st Asian Television Awards 2016

Oh yes, I have the opportunity to attend 21st Asian Television Awards 2016. 
Thanks CK for giving us the tickets and GF for calling me along.

This was my second time attending Asia Television Awards. I was here last year too, read my post here

Met up with GF after our work.
We met up pretty often this week, this was our 3rd meet up this week. So many stuffs to update her. Felt so good that exam was over, finally have the time to catch up with friends without worrying about time.

The award ceremony was again held at Suntec City Convention and Exhibition Centre.
The reason why I wanna come is not for the awards ceremony, but to watch the music performance in between the segment. Amber from f(x) and JJ Lin will be performing later on. Can't wait for that.

The show began with the red carpet.
Among the celebrities that graced the ceremony from all over the world, we spotted Bernice Liu from Hong Kong.  She was in a green sexy gown that night.

The hosts of the night were Adrian Pang, Stephanie Carrington, Alden Richards, and Baki Zainal.

Here comes the first performance of the night by Charli XCX, a British singer.
She brought us 2 songs - "Boom clap" and "After the after party".

Her appearance has warm the crowds up.
The audience started to get high with her.

Pierre Png was here to give out awards.
He has huge fan club presence at the ceremony screaming for him.

"Shake that brass" with Amber.
She is a member from kpop girl group f(x) signed under SM Entertainment.

Kpop performance never failed to garnered lots of cheers throughout the performance. Her dance performance was awesome.
I'm a kpop fan too.

Amber also sang us her English release "Borders".

Pls come back to Singapore with the other members.

Last but not least, The most anticipated performance and the reason why I was here tonight, JJ Lin.
He is my favourite local singer and I love all his songs. The lyrics and melody are so captivating and mesmerizing.

JJ started off with "可惜沒如果", this is one of my favourite songs of his. I love this song very much.

全都怪我 
不该沉默时沉默 该勇敢时软弱 
如果不是我 误会自己洒脱 
让我们难过 可当初的你 
和现在的我 假如重来过 

倘若那天 
把该说的话好好说 该体谅的不执著 
如果那天我 不受情绪挑拨 
你会怎么做 那么多如果 可能如果我 
可惜没如果 只剩下结果

And the last song for the night that JJ sang was "不为谁而做的歌".

Nice songs are worth the wait.
GF and I enjoyed his performance. A great start to begin our weekend.

School Tales Horror Movie Review + Charcoal Thai

It was indeed a night of Thai affairs with my 四面夏娃. We started off the night with watching a Thai horror movie and ended the night with mookata.

Met up with the girls at Shaw Theatre @ Nex for the movie. It's been a long time since I last watched horror movie as I'm not really a big fan of horror movie. I haven't meet up with them since Christmas so I decided to join in for the movie. Thanks GF for bringing me to the movie.

Every school has its tales of horror and mystery…
And the best time to share these school tales is during camp where the students have to stay in the school.

In this movie, the marching band is staying over at the school for their annual camp. A group of members gathered together after their band practice to share about the school ghost tales that have been passed down through generation. Since the night is still young, the 7 of them except the leader (Ohm) decide to “test” if some of their school’s ghostly tales are for real by spliting in pairs for ghost hunting.

 However, when the group returns, 3 of them (one in each pair) are missing.

Tale 1 explored by Top and Net.

Top and Net went over to explored an abandoned building to test their luck if they can see the ghost of Yak. 

A big size, slow-witted student was always being bullied by his classmates and the students called him “Giant”. One day, Giant was tricked into an abandoned building in the school. He panicked, ran and fell to death from a staircase. After the incident, students avoid going to the building and those who wander near would hear a voice asking “Where are you?”…

Tale 2 explored by Song and Pete.

The library is haunted. The ghost with a hideous face will appear if someone goes to the library when it’s empty and disrupt the peace. The ghost will go "Shhhh". If anyone hears that, they are doomed. 

Song and Pete wandered around the library. Suddenly one of them dropped a book and the "Shhh" sound was heard.............. 

Tale 3 explored by May and Cream.

In the band’s rehearsal room, Pawadee's spirit will be summon if someone plays 9 specific notes on a flute in front of the mirror.

The band leader, Ohm, together the girl he loves, Pun, went to uncover the mystery behind the tales, helping the spirits to find closure and rest in peace.

The graphic of the movie is not that scary but the sound effect makes it scary.
The movie reminded me of the old times during our camp in school where we gathered in a circle at night to tell ghost stories. The only difference is we didn't specified stories on ghost tales and we don't go around exploring. I always experienced hard time sleeping in classroom so I opt to do sentry duty and keep watch while the others were asleep.

***

Right after the movie, we met up with Ryden and Kelvin for a dinner gathering. This dinner was also to celebrate GF's birthday in advance before she heads off to her Japan trip.
Happy birthday in advance.

My first time trying out mookata at Charcoal Thai. They were having promotion on the mookata buffet so we decided to try on that.

We just whack on the ordering because we settled down at 9pm and last ordering was 9.30pm.
We ordered plates of meat, vegetables, meatballs, tofu and etc.

We were so hungry by then.
Let's start digging.

We swiped clean 54 plates of items in less than 2 hours. The restaurant supposed to close at 10.30pm but we ate till 10.50pm. Really the last customer leaving.

We felt satisfied after a sumptuous meal.
It was already 12am when I reached home, how I wish it was a weekend the next day.

Guerlain's Beauty Products from Sephora

Sephora is a one-stop beauty-retail store that I often shop at when looking for beauty haul. Sephora offers a wide range of product categories including skincare, makeup, fragrance, body and hair care, in addition to Sephora's own private label.

Not only does Sephora has a retail store for interactive shopping environment, Sephora is available for online purchase as well. The ordering process is fuss free and it comes with free delivery for order $40 and above. 

I just made an order online for getting Guerlain's beauty products. Thanks Sephora for giving me an exclusive gift voucher to shop for the products.

Parcels arrived at my door step within 3-5 days after placing the order.
I love the convenience of shopping online without having to visit the store personally to shop  for the items and carrying the beauty haul home.

I picked up 3 items from Guerlain using the gift voucher I received - Stop Spot, Precision Felt Eyeliner and KissKiss Roselip - Hydrating & Plumping Tinted Lip Balm.

Guerlain is a French perfume and cosmetics and skincare house, among the oldest in the world. This is my first time trying out the brand.

Guerlain Stop Spot 
15ml S$40

This is anti-blemish skincare cream that effectively targets redness and blemishes. It acts instantly and camouflages imperfections when applied.

Just dab onto blemishes and blend in with our fingertip.

Stop Spot has helped to reduce the size of my acne breakout. These red spots have stayed with me for long time and it just can't seem to minimize down. I am glad that Stop Spot works for me. Besides that, it calmed down the redness that appeared on my skin. The spots have become visually smaller.

Guerlain L'Art Du Trait - Precision Felt Eyeliner
S$50

The water-resistant formula eyeliner offers precise and definite drawing to create natural-looking or bold looks in a single stroke that lasts for up to eight hours.

The packaging of the eyeliner is really stunning. I like how the liner tip is thin and precise, making it easy for application to create the desired line that I want. Another thing I like is the long hours of staying power. My skin can easily produced sebum and I really dislike eyeliner that does not come with water-resistant formula because the liner will smudge easily, making me look like a panda.

Guerlain eyeliner's colour is intense and has the ability to stay put that last me throughout the day.
My only grid about this eyeliner is that the price is a little steep, but the eyeliner is really fantastic and worthy of the price.

Guerlain KissKiss Roselip - Hydrating & Plumping Tinted Lip Balm (Peach Party)
S$49

KissKiss Roselip offers the season’s must-have colours ranging from charming red to romantic pink shades. Each lip formula is enriched with rose oil extract to hydrate and plump lips, leaving the lips with a light and delicate look. 

Encased in an irresistible white lacquer case, the lip balm become the ultimate fashion accessory.

KissKiss Roselip is available in 6 colours. I picked the second colour - peach party.

This is my first time I'm using a tinted lip balm. The lip balm not only provide hydration to my lip, it also added colour to my lip, making them look natural and refreshing.

The tinted lip balm hydrated my lips and glided well when applied onto my lips. I carried it in my bag so that I can reapply it anytime anywhere.

Just apply one layer to get the lively effect.
The texture is quite creamy that makes it easily to glide through when applied.

The end look created using Guerlain's Beauty Products (except eyeshadows).

Thanks Sephora for giving me the gift voucher, allowing me the opportunity to try out Guerlain's Beauty Products.
