[Product Review] Good Bye White Hair with CIELO Cream Hair Color

Sponsored Post

Many people whom I met, commented that I don't look like my age, someone who will be stepping into her forties soon. It's probably my chubby cheeks that help, but I can't help feeling my growing white hair give way to my age.

With Christmas and New Year approaching, we are expecting invitations to celebrations and parties. My white hair can be quite disturbing so I jumped on the chance when I was offered the opportuity to do a review on CIELO cream hair colour.  While doing the review, I can make some changes for myself this Christmas, isn't this killing two birds with one stone?

The CIELO cream hair colour, ia rather convenient and hassle-free home dye kit for perfect grey hair coverage. The steps to using CIELO is as easy as 1-2-3.

Pull the flap of the box and you can use it as a standing box

1. Press the button and apply the two color creams directly onto the specially designed comb.

2. Comb the color cream into your hair and leave for 15 minutes.  If you noticed, I'm actually wearing poncho to avoid the cream to drip and stain my clothes, smart right?  Lol...

3. Rinse well and wash your hair with shampoo and complete the process with hair conditioner!

As compared to other brands, CIELO does not have a typical ammonia type of smell. And there's no signs of irritation to my rather sensitive scalp. And best of all, it provides natural shine and radiance to the hair after colouring and it doesn't cause extreme dryness to my hair.  Of course, proper after-color care is important to maintain the vibrancy of your hair color, it is recommended to use shampoos, conditioners and treatments products that are meant for color treated hair.


After - P/S: The white patches are actually reflection of light 
as my mom really can't take picture well
Another thing I like about CIELO Cream Hair Color, is that it allows multiple applications for touch-up, you can keep the remaining cream for future use.  Do note that for those with exteremely long / extremely thick hair, 1 set may be insufficient for use and you probably need another set.

The CIELO Hair cream is now available in leading Pharmacies and Supermarkets at a promotion price of 2 for $28.00 (usual $17.90 each). Do get yours soon if you wanted to enjoy the product at a value price!

[Song of The Day] 《走了》 by Candy Ice 林冰冰



詞: MJ Chew / 周明駿
曲 : Kido Lee / 多吉
主唱 : Candy Ice 林冰冰

枯葉 飄落 眼淚 流過 空氣 稀薄 隱藏 寂寞 燈光 微弱 月下 的我 沉默
你曾 說過 愛我 愛我 我曾 聽過 不再 失落 魚兒 閃躲 藍色 湖泊 沉沒
風吹了 愛走過 缺了什麼 遺失在角落 人群中 心卻很空 回頭你在我身後那時候 時鐘 依然轉動
熟悉的煙味殘留房間 回憶漂泊在耳邊 風吹了 愛走過 缺了什麼 遺失在角落 人群中 心卻很空 回頭你在我身後 那時候 咖啡 依然很濃

[Musical Review] Peter Pan, The Never Ending Story

It's been a while since I last catch a musical, so I gladly accepted Samuel's invitation to catch "Peter Pan, The Never Ending Story" at Resorts World Sentosa (RWS).

The musical is about the fairy tale character, Peter Pan - a mischievous boy who can fly and refuses to grow up, who visits Wendy, John, and Michael Darling in their London nursery one night, and takes them on a magical flight to Neverland where the Lost Boys, Indians, mermaids and pirates await them in adventures beyond their wildest imaginations. And the villainous Captain Hook hatches an evil scheme that crescendos to a dramatic sword fight with Peter.


My initial thought is that, since the musical is based on a fairy tale, so it is likely to appeal more to the kids than adults.  Indeed, the settings and props are very colourful and surely appeals to the kids, but so am I, being attracted.  The "blocks of books" that amazingly transform into different props backdrop with the multi-media projections, are simply awesome, with the musical carried out in a narrative manner, you felt as if someone reading the fairy tale of Peter Pan to you,

I thought that most songs will likely to be children songs, but to my surprise, pop songs like - Robbie Williams' "Angels", Josh Groban's "You Raise Me Up" and Duran Duran's "Wild Boys", are given a makeover by the musical director Matt Dunkley (the name behind the soundtracks of Moulin Rouge, Pirates of the Caribbean and Inception).  Nope, I did not check out for trailers nor review prior hand so this is actually a pleasant surprise to me.

I learnt that this Peter Pan musical is usually performed in outdoor arena, so performing indoor at the Resorts World Theatre could be challenging with the space constraints. Nonetheless, it does not make the play less interesting.  In fact, having the spectacular high flying action, e.g. swordplay and acrobatic stunts above the audience seats, and having the casts walking past the audience, up to the stage, makes it more thrilling and interesting, as though we are part of the play, going through the adventure together at the Neverland.

There is a fabulous chemistry between Sandor Sturbl (Peter Pan) and Lily-Jane Young (Wendy), probably due to they are a couple in real life. I was much attracted to the beautiful vocal of Lily-Jane Young (Wendy) and Saartje Van Houttee (Mrs. Darling/Mermaid). Do share with me, whose voice do you love most!

While you may think that the play is purely entertainment for the kids, I thought it is educational too as it touches topic on siblings love, friendship, jealously, self sacrificing and growing up. At the same time, it revive the inner kid in oneself. It is definitely a musical meant for  both kids and adults.

Christmas is just around corner and we will be embracing the new year soon. Comedy Central Asia will be giving you your Christmas gift a little earlier this year with the last three Saturday Night Live (SNL) episodes of 2014, that are going to be the bomb!

SNL has planned a star-studded line-up of guests hosts and musical guests for this season’s cheer. James Franco stars as Guest Host in the Asia premiere of this Saturday’s episode on 13 December at 9pm (TH/WIB), 10pm (HK/PH/SG/TW) and 11pm (MY), followed by Martin Freeman on 20 December and Amy Adams on 27 December. The encore telecast of respective episodes including musical performances that will debut weekly on Fridays at 9pm (TH/WIB), 10pm (HK/PH/SG/TW) and 11pm (MY) - Nicki Minaj on 19 December, Charli XCX on 26 December and One Direction on 2 January.

SNL, being the longest-running late night comedy sketch show in history,  celebrates its 40th anniversary on-air this year.  Brand new episodes of SNL Season 40 premiere every Saturday at 9pm (TH/WIB), 10pm (HK/PH/SG/TW) and 11pm (MY) on Comedy Central Asia.

Here's why these last three episodes for the year promise to be absolutely must-watch!!!

1. There’s Serious and Seriously Funny Actors…
…And then there are actors who are experts at both! You may know some of their comedic material, but Franco, Freeman and Adams, also take the art form very seriously.  What you need to see is their journey in film to know what acting juggernauts they are…

James Franco started really making a name for himself acting alongside Tobey McGuire in Hollywood as the conflicted Harry Osborn in the Spiderman trilogy. We saw his incredible range in Gus Van Sant’s multi award-winning feature, Milk, of which co-star Sean Penn won the Best Actor Oscar. Two years later, Franco would be nominated for the same award as Aron Ralston in British director, Danny Boyle’s 127 Hours. Franco also has an impressive repertoire as a comedian – from his multiple appearances on SNL to comedies Pineapple Express and This Is the End.

You may know Martin Freeman from the incredibly successful British series – Ricky Gervais’ The Office, which has spawned many winning spinoffs. He was the lead character in cult-favourite,
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Of course, the actor has ascended into superstardom since
playing Bilbo Baggins in Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit film trilogy – a huge task for those hobbit

Amy Adams is a household name in several forms of comedy, from romantic comedies to
comedy-dramas. She has been topping herself ever since her breakout role in indie flick,
Junebug. The lords of film duly noticed, and she landed a role in the star-studded film,
Enchanted, which increased her exposure to the world. Adams has never looked back since, with
five supporting Oscar nominations for Junebug, Doubt, The Fighter, The Master and American
Hustle; a role as the iconic Lois Lane in Man of Steel and Spike Jonze’s critically-acclaimed

2. James Franco and Amy Adams brought the house down the last time they were on SNL
This will be Franco’s third time hosting SNL, and Adams’ second. When Franco last hosted
alongside musical guests Muse, coincidentally a Christmas Special, there was abundance in
humour. In A Kissing Christmas, Franco played a character bringing his girlfriend home to meet
his family for the holidays – and she soon finds out his family is a little too affectionate. Often
associated with James Dean, he reprises this role in the Bill Hader sketch, Vince Prince’s 1956
Christmas Special.

In this Saturday’s episode, Franco and partner in crime Seth Rogen will be making light of the
recent hacking on Sony in their SNL appearance. Get ready to feast your eyes on some risqué
photos of Franco and Rogen!

Adams made her hosting debut in 2008. Her hilarious monologue ended in a duet with Kristen
Wiig, about how they’re lookalikes. The next sketch treaded along a similar path, with Adams
and Wiig acting as sisters trying to pass themselves off as one student when they enroll at a new
school. She introduced her portrayal of Heidi Klum in the sketch, The Hot Mess Make-Over Show,
one filled with priceless catchphrases.
Martin Freeman, on the other hand, will be making his debut on SNL. Need more reasons to
catch these episodes?

3. Nicki Minaj, Charli XCX, and One Direction have new material
After releasing her blazing hot single “Anaconda,” Nicki Minaj is soon to launch her third studio album, The Pinkprint, on Monday, 15 December, four days before she make her appearance on SNL. You'll get a sneak-peak of sorts, including, her impressive celebrity impersonation skills with impressions of Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian during her musical performances.

Charli XCX will be releasing her second album, Sucker on Tuesday, 16 December, just before her SNL appearance.

Pop sensation One Direction made girls swoon in their appearance on SNL last year. Their fourth studio album, Four, was released just last month and they will be making their appearance, bringing to you their new songs!

REMEMBER, all performances on SNL are recorded live – and live is the way to see a musical artistes’ real chops.

Mass Workout at Plus! Zumba Fitness

Whenever, we talk about “Plus! Programme”, most of us will associate it with “NTUC” or “NTUC Card”, reason being, the card is issued by NTUC Link.  But it is actually more than what we thought, and not merely the perceived uncle-aunty grocery loyalty card brand. Plus! is Singapore’s award-winning and largest consumer loyalty programme that aims to help stretch the value of working families’ hard-earned dollars through LinkPoints and other benefits and offering 4 key types of rewards – Top Favourites, uShow, uBid and uExperience.

Couple weeks back, Plus! held its first-ever mass participation challenge -- “Plus! Presents Zumba Fitness”, where members and their families enjoy a day of Zumba fitness at Ngee Ann City Civic Plaza. This largest Zumba Fitness event took place on Sunday, 23rd November 2014 from 8am to 1pm. With a turnout of 1,200 participants, “Plus! Presents Zumba  Fitness” exceeds the current Singapore Book of Records for the category of “Largest Zumba Dance” which has a total of 990 participants and I’m so proud to be part of this record breaking!

Most people would have prefer to stay in their bed for longer time on weekend morning, however, we see a bustling crowd in the heart of orchard in early in that Sunday morning. Beside the long queue, we see booths set up by Skechers, Ztudio Asia Zumba Wear, Coca-Cola Singapore, Health Promotion Board, Kenko Wellness, NTUC Membership Registration both & Plus! Card Booth, etc, offering star price of their products or sharing their range of service and activities.

Beside, there are also other fringe activities like bouncing castle, balloon sculpting, face and hand painting which caters to the junior.

It is a very interesting event where like-minded people get together for a great workout with Zumba, the participants range from young kids of less than 10 years old, to elderly of more than 60 years old! Cool, isn’t it?

Plus! plans to work with other partner organizations to organize similar events on a yearly basis and to promote its members health and well-being.   Mr. Zee Yoong Kang, CEO of the Health Promotion Board who is the Guest of Honour of the event, is very happy that Plus! is taking this step to raise awareness of the importance of a healthy lifestyle among its members.  -- "Events like “Plus! Presents Zumba® Fitness” which gives Plus! members the platform to exercise together as a community is a good example of supporting Singaporeans’ journey towards good health and in creating a healthier Singapore.”.   Beside this record breaking mass Zumba, there is lucky draw too which 1 lucky winner walk away with 1 million linkpoints!!!
Had a great time with fellow bloggers and I certainly look forward to attending more of similar events!
