Short Update: Essensual Bugis Hair Promotion


Hello Fire Tits,

How had your week been?

Christmas and CNY are coming soon?

Planned on how to spend your holidays yet?

Well for me, I will be busy earning $$$ during these holiday season.

Fuck Holidays, $$$ is more important than anything else.

Anyway I wanna do a short update on my recent trip to Essensual Bugis.

If you guys had been stalking my blog ( since early this year when I just started ), you must had known that Essensual Bugis had been my official sponsor for hair and ( well I can say ) I’m a proud walking advertisement for them.

I just felt so blessed being one of their sponsored blogger ( even though we had our difference before – be it friends, conflicts etc ).

It’s really like a creativity type of blessed that someone could truly understand what I “want”.

I felt that I’m sort of like a pioneer ( and also a guinea pig ) in experimenting different hair colours.

I bare no judgements to anyone’s choice of hair.

Recently, I just felt sort of “robbed” that whatever hair colour/hair cuts I have chosen ( and tried ), some motherfucker will go and copy it and make it seems theirs ( when I’ve already done it ), without CREDITING me !!!

* chill * * chill * * chill *

( The feeling is like ) For example,

You are the one who started the trend ( in your school ) of wearing wristbands, suddenly some fugly bitch saw it and also wore wristbands to school and did the “ Check out my wristband !!! Chio or not ??? “ IN YOUR FACE !!! How would you feel ?

Guilty conscious after reading this ???

GOOD !!! That’s exactly what I’ve wanted you to feel >;)

Grudges aside,
I went to Essensual Bugis ( a few days ) ago and had my hair colour changed.

I was really bored of my natural black ( and boring ) hair.

I’ve no choice because I’m growing my hair ( because my hair is FUCKED UP after my platinum blonde ) and I’m doing my internship ( which means no LOUD hair colours ).

So I asked Bryan to “ cocktail “ for me a special shade of Ash Brown.

Brown hair colour is so common but I wanted something lighter and more towards the “warm tone”.

Therefore after a few hours of bleaching and reapplying of hair toners,

Bryan had came up with this:

I loved my new hair colour.

It’s very “milk-ish” shade of brown with a light touch of Ash.

It’s just feel so AWESOME walking out a salon , people staring at your hair colour, and  complimenting it.

It’s like an orgasm to my ears and self-esteem.

Anyway Bryan gave me his new range of Wella Professional’s hair spray to try and review on it

It’s called the Wella Professional Super Set Finish.

After a few usage, it’s seriously not bad.

I love it that it smells good because all the fucking hairsprays ( that I’ve used before ) had a strong stench of aerosol.

I love it that it gives me a strong holding power and resistance to rain ( yes RAIN, it’s December season y'all ).

( If you had known ) I’m a religious believer in generously spraying your hair spray.

Eventually the consequences of spraying too much of hair spray would be having to deal with dry hair ends ( due to product build- up ).

So this hair spray came in handy because it’s damn easy to WASH OFF.

Not bad. I’m giving my Eric Lim stamp of approval.

So if you’re interested in purchasing it ( or any other Wella Professional range of products ),

Essensual Bugis is having PROMOTION:


AWESOME MUCH ??? \(^.^)/

So head down to Essensual Bugis now to check out their products, or you can spam their formspring.

I’ve come to the end of my short update ( at least it’s JUICY ) right ???

Alright fucktards.

Love you and miss you *shake booty * <3

The DRX Clinic Diary: Consultation


Hello Beauty-maniacs,

Recently I was being introduced ( by a friend of mine ) to this amazing aesthetic clinic.

It is called “ The DRX Clinic “.
Maybe it might sound familiar to you ( because it was highly recommended by magazines/internet forums ).

( But if you never heard of it ),

I did a blogpost to review my first trip to The DRX Clinic.


What’s The DRX Clinic ?

The DRX Clinic is set up in 1999 and led by renowned aesthetic physician Dr S K Tan ( who has 30 years of expertise under his belt ).

The DRX Clinic is known worldwide for their research on hyperpigmentation and reputed for their effective treatment on ACNE.

The DRX Clinic ONLY uses Derma- Rx ( a range of globally known skincare products ) made in US and is only attainable through prescription by their certified doctors.

What services does The DRX Clinic provides?

The DRX Clinic is equipped with the latest technologies ( to ensure the most advanced treatment for individual conditions ) such as " Proprietary Laser Programs " that not only treats hyperpigmentation but also treats ACNE and vascular ( related to blood vessels ) conditions !!!

The DRX Clinic do offer treatments for hair fall oncerns ( balding people, TAKE NOTE ) !!!

Why I wanted to visit an asethic clinic for treatment?

The main reason why I visited The DRX Clinic is because I wanted to get a "laser treatment" for a long time.

A laser treatment would definitely help to lighten my scars, uneven skin texture, blackheads and open pores.

I have been fighting the "acne" war for a long time.

I shall be honest, I used make up to get the effect of having a flawless skin ( and to look presentable).

However, ( whenever I'm not wearing make up ) I felt very low self-esteem and not "confident" about my appearance.

Different people have different self-consciousness.

My self-consciousness ( and my nightmare ) would be my fucking ACNE/ and its residue SCAR.

Don't believe?

I took the courage to take a few photos of myself without any make up, without any photoshop, and even without any skincare on.

I'm just presenting to you my fucking BARE FACE.

Here it is ( get ready ):

Front view of my "fucked-up-ness"

Left side of my "fucked-up-ness"

Right view of my "fucked-up-ness"
I know it's gruesome, in-appropriate or even borderline GORE to post my no make up/ no photoshop face over on my blog but this is the fucking face/ugly truth I have to deal with EVERYDAY.

Even though I'm a skincare junkie/guinea pig , ( to be honest ) skincare products could ONLY "subside" or "lighten" the appearance of the scar and also to be used as a daily maintanence.

However, an asethetic laser treatment would definitely benefit my skin ALOT and helps me to achieve back my ( once ) flawless skin ( back then when I was 14 ).

Entering The DRX Clinc

When I first entered the clinic, I feel very welcomed by the beautiful ivory themed furnitures ( because the whole clinic look very CLEAN, SPACIOUS and PROFESSIONAL ) and the cheerful consultants awaiting for me at the reception ( with a SMILE of course ^.^ ).

I love it that the clinic is located at some "ulu" ( deserted ) building ( in orchard road ) because ...

It's very PEACEFUL !!!

I don't want to go to those clinic that is filled with noisy children or mums breastfeeding their kids( or me stepping on a breast-pump ).

and I feel VERY TAITAI-ish because I was treated with royalty by their excellent service attitude ( given by the consultants/doctors )

I feel that I'm educated by the consultants and especially by Dr Nicholas when I do my consultation.

Brochures READY for you to pick up

Products have been placed for you to TRY
Brochures and Television ( showing clips of various treatment ) were available EVERYWHERE.

However, I need to inform you that the awaiting time at the reception is around 10-20 mins ( it's like polyclinic "style" of waiting but less aggressive ).

Do bring your iPhone or iPod to keep yourself entertained ( or you can read their highly-informative BROCHURES ).

Starting my Consultation

When I entered the consultation room I was welcomed by Dr Nicholas Ngui.

Here's a photo of Dr Nicholas Ngui :

Dr Nicholas Consultation Room ( Ok I feel damn stalker-ish ,but yeah this is his office )
Dr Nicholas Ngui has 13 years of clinical practice experience and 12 years of pharmaceutical industry experience.
I think that I'm very lucky to Dr Nicholas Ngui as my doctor because he was very informative, experienced and FRIENDLY ( I buay tahan those doctors that are fucking egoistic and think they know it all and preferred us patients to STFU !!! ).

Firstly Dr Nicholas Ngui used a mini Macnifying "ringlight" to examine my skin condition.

Then he asked me whether I'm facing any acne/pimple breakout, which I gladly replied " occassionally YES, but luckily NO ".

Then I told him that I'm facing very bad "pores" enlargement , scarring and acne "residues/aftermaths" ( from my previous breakouts ).

Dr Nicholas explained to me that "large pores" actually reflects the increased activity of the oil glands and, realistically, it is not possible to fully "close" the pores but laser treatments could help to the minimize the apparance of the pores.

Then I explained to Dr Nicholas that I had oral treatment "Accutane (Isotretinon)" before( which doesn't work for me at ALL ).

It helps at first ( by drying up my skin to the max ) but eventually it doesn't help anymore.

And it's super expensive and unproductive ( and makes my lips peel like crazy ) !!!

Then I switched to "off the counter products ( like KIEHLS' )" for help and it worked ( for my acne inflammations ONLY ).

Ok I know I am super long-winded and I won't be surprised if you suddenly DOZE OFF.

* WAKE UP *, haven't finished yet ( I'm all excited for my treatment, so just bare with me fuck-tards ) !!!
( To prevent you from falling asleep from my grandmother story ),

I've posted a few more pictures of The DRX Clinc:

Product Consultation Rooms ( Consultants will bring you to this room to explain to you how to used their products )

Photo-Taking Room ( to take your mugshots BEFORE treatment face. DON'T WORRY !!! The photos are HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL )

Treatment Room ( which I will be the one lying down on it very soon *nervous pee* )
Dr Nicholas explained to me what products ( from Derma-Rx ) will he be prescribing for me and explained to me why it suits my skin conditions.

He also explained to me that the products also helps to prepare my skin for the laser treatments.

( Personally ) I feel that Derma-Rx range of products are not really considered as a "regime" but rather considered as skincare products targetted on specific skin concerns.

Well nvm.
Here are the Derma-Rx products that Dr Nicholas had specially prescribed for my skin condtion ( ACNE SKIN PEOPLE, WAKE UP *clap* !!! )and I've wrote a review on how I feel about how I feel about the products ( after 4-5 days of usage ):

STEP 1: Foaming Cleanser ( 170 ml )


The Foaming Cleanser is a hydrating cleanser for ALL SKIN TYPES that contains optimal concentrations of Marine Algae extracts that gently EXFOLIATES for a soothing and refreshing wash. This cleanser promotes natural cleansing and toning, while balancing the pH ( oil and water content ) level on the skin.

My Review:

I feel that the cleanser is not bad. It's basically a normal gel cleanser and it lathers foam ( like any other foam wash ). I like it that it retains my skin natural moisture after washing and it doesn't contains any fragrance.

STEP 2: Toner ( 170 ml )

Description: Toner is an alcohol-free fluid with Glycolic and Salicylic Acid to enhance the cleansing process. It contains Allantoin, which helps restore moisture to the skin, leaving the skin feeling revitalized and supple.

My Review:

When I applied the toner on a cotton pad, I can smell a light medicinal smell. I predict it's the smell of Salicylic Acid. Not to worry. The smell is bearable and pleasant. I like the toner because it's very hyrating and my skin appears to be more refreshed. It's fast-absorbing and NON-STICKY !!!

STEP 3: Comedone Formula ( 25ml )

Description: Comedone Formula is a natural formulation containing botanical extracts, which work to reduce the appearance of comedones ( blackheads & whiteheads ). It assists in dissolving and softening comedones and prevents new comedone formation by loosening the follicular plug and also by reducing sebaceous ( oil glands ) activity.

My Review:

I was told by the consultant to apply a light amount of it ONLY at my affected areas ( like my T-zone, cheeks and jaw area ). I need to pat ( with my fingers ) to let it absorb. I feel that it's a little sticky ( when you just apply it onto your skin ) but after a few seconds the sticky-ness feeling with fade ( because I guessed it's been absorb into the skin ). You will feel abit of "tickling sensation" and your skin might turn a little yellowish but not to worry this actually proves that the product is doing it's job.

STEP 4: Blemish Formula Plus ( 25ml )

Description: Blemish Formula Plusis an effective anti-acne preparation that contains a micronized version of Benzoyl Peroxide ( one of the EXCELLENT ingredient used for treating acnes !!! , which optimizes the follicular penetration ( how fast the product absorb into your skin ) with improved efficacy. This formulation, with a slow and extended release of Benzoyl Peroxide, minizes irritation, provides extended and long-lasting effectiveness at the site of action ( affected area ). It also regulates overly active sebaceous glands to control ebum ( oil ) productions.

My Review:

I was told to only apply this on pimple area ( like my cheeks and jaw ). I like it that it's non-greasy and ( infact ) my skin feels matte after applying. The texture is gel-like and it's not sticky on the skin. <3

STEP 5: Lightener ( 35ml )

Description: Ligtener is a non-greasy gel that contains a potent 4% Hydroquinone for maximum effects of skin lightening. Ideal for the treatment of skin discoloration and unsightly pigmentation such as freckles,age-spots, melasma and senile lentigines, this formula is a highly stable preparation that resists OXIDATIVE DISCOLORATION ( darkening of skin ).

My Review:

This is my favourite product !!! I absolutely love this product because it contains Hydroquinone !!! Hydroquinone is a well known ingredient which is excellent in skin whitening to reduce the colour of the skin and even out the skin tone. It's not harsh for the skin as well. Onced I applied this product on, immediately the appearance of my skin becomes fairer. If you are more daring, you could apply a few "pea" size more over on your blemish area ( to somehow camflouge and treats it ).

It's recommended to use a SUNBLOCK !!!

Eventually any "whitening" products will be redundant if you don't apply a sunblock on.
 Step 6: Tinted Sunscreen SPF 30+ ( 60 ml ) ( only in the DAY, or at night if you're going out )

Description: Tinted Sunscreen SPF 30+ is an advanced tinted formulation that provides protection against harmful UV radation while ensuring minimal risk of irritation. With a smooth powdery feel, it is ideal for post-laser or post-procedure sun-protection.

My Review:

I took the tinted sunblock ( instead of their normal sunblock ) because usually I apply make up base before I apply my make up ( to somehow even out my skin colour ). Now I'm using the tinted sunscreen to act as a sunblock and a make up base. Not bad. You won't feel very greasy after using it. It's gives you a dewy powder-like feeling. Eventually it will become matte ( after 2-3 mins ).

STEP 7: Vita-A-Gel ( 35 ml ) ( only at NIGHT )

Description: Vit-A-Gel is a unique formulation containing a syngergistic blend of Green Tea extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Retinol and Salicylic Acid (BHA) to stimulate and increase cell-turnover, with additional comedolytic action. It also reduces the appearance of fine lines and uneven skin texture.

My Review:

I was told to apply this on whole face ( but avoid upper eyelid and corner of nose because the skin is more delicate/thin around that area ).  When I opened the product, I can smell a light citrus-like smell ( I guessed its the Green Tea extract ), well like it smells medicinal but tolerable. I felt abit of tickling sensation but it will fade of within 1-2 mins.

However my skin gets dry the next day, I guessed due to the over extensive amount of skincare I'm applying.

But don't get me wrong, I like the effect of this product on my skin because it helps to even out my skin texture.

Therefore I come into conclusion of using it, every alternate night so that my skin has enough time to recuperate and comes up with new layer of healthy "dead skin".


So I have concluded my first visit to The DRX Clinic.

More importantly, my first trip to The DRX Clinic is basically a ( face-to-face ) consultation with Dr Nicholas

Currently I am still using their products and religiously apply their range of products.

If you wish to know more about The DRX Clinic,


I feel so sad for my other bottles of skincare products. I feel bad for not using them now. LOL !!! I've totally left them for Derma-Rx.

I know it's beneficial if I stick to one full range of products from a specific brand ( best advice ). I just feel that they are my babies too and they are like poor orphans now. LOL !!!

Currently, no specific treatment has been assigned to me by Dr Nicholas yet but a schedule appointment had been made on January 16 ( 3 weeks from now ) to decide what treatment would suit me BEST and then proceed with their treatment.

Most likely, it will be a laser treatment ( like fractional laser or CO2 laser ).

Don't worry bitches, I will definitely be doing a blogpost for my next visit.

Stay tuned to my awesome blog 

Wish me luck, beauty fucks !!! \(^.^)/

Good Morning Bloggermizer,

What a beautiful Tuesday morning !!!

( Just to let you know ) I’m battling bad sore throat while I’m typing out my #ZoukOut2011 blogpost.

Someone should just come out with a miracle sore throat pills, so I could pop a few and it will magically be cured ( within a few minute). I have a very sensitive throat.

The worst part is I love to eat peanuts, potato chips and chocolate, which is SO NOT throat friendly. I hate sore throat is because it would take forever to cure and when it worsens it will lead to fever and flu ( which is damn FUCKED UP ).

I hate to fall sick. My paranoid thinking will always lead me to think that I’ve contracted some terminally ill disease and sooner I will cough out blood ( like those HK drama LOL !!! ).

Anyway bullshit aside ( here’s the real deal baby ),

I’m here to blog about my #ZoukOut2011 experience last weekend.

Since Miyake and Yutaki aren't in Singapore, the most eligible candidate to accompany me to #ZoukOut2011 is … YAN KAY KAY xiao jie , or should I named her as #MsDaiJaBu ( she fucking loves that word , it’s literally like “hello” to her LOL !!! ).

A month back, #MsDaiJaBu asked me whether am I interested to go for #ZoukOut2011.

Without hesitation, I’m like “FUCK YEAH”.

I don’t know how this might sound, you could call me a nerd, a fucktard etc ( I don't care ).

Because … I never once been to a #ZoukOut event.
So it’s my first time going to a #ZoukOut event and I’m all excited for it.

( Seriously I could officially induct myself to be a Zouk Queen of Chios because I’ve been supporting and patronizing Zouk VERY FREQUENTLY lately. They could totally give me a timesheet, punch card machine and I’m ready to report to Zouk. LOL !!! )

( Fast-forward to the actual night of #ZoukOut2011 ) #MsDaiJaBu was telling me that she got me a ticket but I need to be there at 8pm.

But seriously, who ( with a right mind ) goes to ZoukOut that early? Not me.

As a standing member of Zouk’s Queen Of Chios ( * uncomfortable cough * ), the most happening time for Zouk would be around 11pm-12midnight. Furthermore, I’m not going to #ZoukOut2011 ALONE at 8pm.

What am I suppose to do at 8pm? Clean the toilet ? Pack the ghetto plastic cups ?

So I told #MsDaiJaBu to ask the Zouk Marketing Exec, Sofie ( #ShoutOut to my girl Sofie, she worked her ASS OFF for Zouk ) whether I could top up or change the ticket to a later timing. Sofie said it’s ok to do so.

Then, I went to meet up with #MsDaiJaBu and her friends at around 11pm and set out to Siloso beach.

If you are a ZoukOut virgin ( like me ), you could never believe how unbelievable the traffic going in to Silosa Beach was.

We were caught in the traffic ( just by going in ) for almost 45 mins !!!

It SUCKS and my ZoukOut eyes were eye-flipping everyone off and swearing.

To ease my anxiety, I took out my camera and took some chio photos of myself.

Here are the photos :

Around 12midnight, we FINALLY reach Siloso Beach.

While walking in, I saw this very pretty girl ( wearing a leopard print bathrobe, Ray Bun sunglasses and standing on super high stilettos ) smoking at one corner.

My mind was telling me “ this girl is super familiar , it could be …. …. “

Holy fuckball !!! It was MAKIYO !!!

It’s my second time meeting her. The last time I met her was because of THIS.

So I walked forward and said hi to her ( because I was very excited to see her ).

( With her famous Makiyo baby voice ) She said “ You are the blogger Eric right ? ( in mandarin )”.

I was thrilled because she REMEMBERED ME !!!

We exchanged conversation ( for around 10 mins ). And I was introduced #MsDaiJaBu to her ( f.y.i KayKay was supposed to turn up for the meet up with Makiyo, but she canceled last minute because she got family matters to attend to ).

Here’s a group photo with Makiyo and KayKay.  

Before all the photoshop, I look damn fucked up in this group photo with Makiyo and KayKay.

"Thank God" for learning photoshop, I managed to re-assemble my face. *phew*

Well one group photo is never enough.

Who could resist Makiyo and her Makiyo-ness?

So I snapped a few more pictures with her.

And also "Thank God" for learning photoshop, I managed to make her erm … less SLEEPY looking.

Then, #MsDaiJaBu and I headed to make our royal appearance at #Zoukout2011.

We really sashayed our ass in and my heart was pumping/screaming in anxiety.

Because KayKay had the VIP ticket and I had the 8pm ticket, our queue ( for entry ) was different. I was ready to pay the extra few bucks to change my ticket.

To my horror, I was being REJECTED FOR ENTRY.

#Zoukout2011 staffs told me that what I’m holding was a COMPLIMENTARY TICKET which allow me to enter ( latest by ) 8PM.


I re-confirmed with Sofie, ( she didn’t knew it was complimentary ) and apologized for replying me that we could top-up for entry.

I have no choice but to buy myself a $98 ( actual day price ) #ZoukOut 2011 ticket !!!

Since I’m already at Siloso Beach, I couldn’t like “Bye bitches, I’m going home”.

However, the $98 was like a dagger in my pussy. ( Still ) The $98 was a must spend.

When I thought I had enough humiliation, I need to walk a SEPARATE route ( for people holding $98,$88,$78 tickets only) !!!

I felt like a fucking illegal immigrant and walking in SHAME.

The separate route was filled with angry party-goers ( 80% are cheap-skate ang mohs and middle-easterns. I swear ).

( If I knew better ) I would have bought myself a VIP ticket and save my ass from this form of demoralization.

The worst part is, the ang mohs ( infront of me ) were perspiring and had stench of fisces.

Oh my god, my heart was screaming and crying.

It’s worst than smelling the toilets in Chinatown.

And I was stucked in the separate route ( before the official entry ) for ALMOST AN HOUR.

I feel like I’m fangirl queuing to see fucking F4 or something.

Finally ( around 1pm ), I managed to enter #Zoukout2011 ( with my nose still intact * phew * ).

Here's a photo with KayKay ( at the entrance ) :


Poor KayKay and gang were waiting for me.

I felt super embarrassed and paiseh.

Therefore, I went to buy drinks to compensate for the wait.

What happen when you wanna go get yourself a drink?

Yes Thank You. A Fucking Long Queue ( AGAIN ) !!!

The worst part is I need to queue JUST TO PURCHASE DRINK COUPONS ( like I’m in a fucking secondary school Teacher’s Day funfair or something ), so that I could exchange for my cups of beer/vodka redbulls.

( By then ) My perspirations were trickling down like a heavy downpour.

It’s like someone had put prop tubes on my ears and snickering and pumping out water. Half way through the queue, I’m really a puddle in a hat.

Finally, I got myself those drink coupons ( after squeezing and cutting my way in ).

All I can tell you is, those drunk and aggressive ang mohs ain’t fucking around with you.

When they wanna get their drink coupons, they fucking MEANT IT !!!

I couldn’t tell you how many times they had elbow-ed me in the face.


Then I head over to the Singtel booth to look for June because her client ( Singtel ) was the official sponsor for the event.

She had complimentary beers and we were half drunk by 2 AM.

Here's photos of June and group photos with her friends :

We hide in the Singtel booth for awhile because it was extremely crowded everywhere.

Seriously ( if ever ) Osama Bin Laden wanna wipe out the younger generations of Singapore, he should totally consider coming to Zoukout.

It was packed with 28 000 people. Can you believe it?

No wonder, Zouk can be the longest running nightclub in Singapore ( Ministry Of Sound is not even near Zouk’s anus hair ).

Let me do the calculation ...  28 000 X $98 ? * oh shit *

$2.744 Million !!! * unbelievable *


Well overall, it’s a unforgettable experience going to an outdoor party.

I enjoyed myself ( not as super enjoyable like I imagined it to be ), but still it’s an experience.

We went home at around 6AM in the morning.

We were unbelievable drunk.

( By then ) Our legs were aching, voices were raspy and our bodies were aching.

I really don’t know how some people could still dance at 8 AM in the morning.

Hello, is your blood make from black tar heroine? Why still so high?

There were puddle of vomits everywhere ( and it STINKS ) and they could still dance like as if their nose were magically blocked.

Oh yah, I forgot to mention about this.

It’s extremely DIFFICULT to get a cab in Sentosa.

Luckily ( prior to #ZoukOut2011 ), KayKay’s friend Kanny booked a limosine to fetch us back.

Or else I gonna stuck in the taxi queue forever.

It’s really a cab-choose-customer situation.

Just imagine a few thousand people queueing for 10-20 cabs.

They were going after the cabs like the zombies in Resident Evil.

It’s C.R.A.Z.Y !!!

Well ... I’ve asked myself whether I will still go to any future outdoor parties?

The answer is … NO !!! HELL NO !!!

I still preferred my indoor ( AIR CONDITIONED ) clubs with nice modern interiors.

Before I sign off, here's a final photo with me and KayKay:
