[Unboxing Videos] Redmi Note Singapore set

We all know that the Redmi Note Singapore set was released early July and everyone were eager to get their hands on it. After three flash sales, there were still quite a number who didn't manage to purchase it. I think I am one of the lucky ones, along with my friend.

So, as usual, we decided to do a unboxing video. If you wanna know more about the details of the Redmi Note, you can view hers:

Here is mine, a short snip, testing how great a Redmi Note video can be! Using Ian's Redmi Note to video down the unboxing process. Tell the truth, the video quality aint great but the recording is powerful.

And here's Redmi Note Lite video, great to convince that your parents need a Redmi Note!

After using my redmi note for a week or so now, I'm loving the size even though it's way bigger than my palms, but still the touch of a 5.5" is amazing. Maybe more after I full utilise the phone.

Nanoblock addiction

Ever since my friend, Angel, got me my first nanoblock set, I've been a little addicted to this hobby. A little too addicted I would say. My last purchase cost me $170 *sweats* but it is all about the joy of fixing them together and displaying on my desk.
My very first set of Nanoblocks
It was lovely to fix up my first set as it was kinda cute to have something small for desk decoration.
Cute isn't it???? 
But as time went by, friend asked if I wanna get Rilakkumas' nanoblock, the burning urge to get them and build them for desk decoration grew stronger. So I got two more Rilakkumas and the addiction to build went up.

This one took longer to fix as this Rilakkuma lies down and it was harder for me to imagine how it would looked like even though I followed the instructions. 

This is easier but i think the blocks wasn't well fixed. Had some issues with the head though. 

The heads were interesting to build, so when Kino was having a 20% discount for all members, I went on a nanoblock shopping spree. Within that one spree @ Kino, I ended up $200 poorer. 
Pikachu from the Pokemon Series
Nearly purchase the whole series, but what stopped me was my pocket. Even though it was worth the purchase. 
Another series of the Rilakkuma
I wanted to get all three from this series, but D said too many for the house currently. And he said since I've already gotten the brown rilakkuma and the pink one, why am I getting another two more in the different design? T_T He just don't understand the addiction. 
Torre pendente di Pisa
This is one of the famous sight seeing places that I've purchase, the small one of coz. It was different from fixing a character as this has more repetition than a character. So I had some fun shots with my completed nanoblock with Xiaomi's France Mi Bunny. 
Interrupting a Date
"I wanna enter... *rawrs*"
Time to head back to fixing up nanoblocks. More coming soon maybe? ^_^

[Sponsored] Bio-essence Tanaka White

I think every girl has the same issue that I am facing now, since the weather isn't playing their part well these days. My skin isn't as fair as it used to due to the fact that I am out under the sun most of the time. Also, living in a tropical country you can hardly avoid the sun. (if you stay at home most of the time) Which is why I apply sunblock everyday to prevent UV, which will cause dark spots and wrinkles. But applying sunblock or sunscreen isn't enough to fight against dark spots, wrinkles and uneven skin tones

So Bio Essence's Tanaka White range helps in preventing and fight against dark spots, wrinkles and uneven skin tones. And their Tanaka White 4X Serum has a new improved version which contains premium alpha-Arbutin that is 9X more powerful than beta-Arbutin, which is typically found in many other whitening products in the market.
Arbutin, extracted from bearberry plants and helps to brighten dull and yellowish skin, is a great natural whitening agent that is known for eliminating pigmentation and improving overall skin complexion. It also helps maintain skin’s fairness by preventing the formation of melanin and protects skin against harmful UV rays.
This ingredient is found in most of the whitening product that helps in maintaining fairness and brightens up skin tone. This is one of the most sort for natural ingredient in most beauty product these days.  And it is also something I would look for as one of the main ingredients when I'm purchasing my skin care products as my wedding is approaching, I would love to look pretty and fair on that day. *haha* So it is time to prep the skin well before the big day.

Besides Arbutin, Bio Essence's Tanaka White comes with another natural ingredient, Tanaka.
With the Tanaka Extract found in this product, combined with Kojic Acid, which comes from the fermentation process of malting rice in the use of manufacturing sake, I can fight against UV rays from the outside, while the arbutin work the fairness of my skin from the inside. As Kojic Acid is a popular agent used to lighten skin and is also used to treat skin diseases such as melasma. It is a great anti-oxidant with antibacterial and antifungal properties which effectively lightens freckles and pigmentations and evens skin tone.

Besides the Tanaka White 4X Serum,Tanaka White Double Whitening Day Cream SPF 20 is also another new improved product which had recently added in SPF 20. Great for ladies who will be out for a short while probably a few hours no more than 4. This is to prevent any harmful UV rays from trying their best to enter our skin. Besides preventing UV rays, Tanaka White Double Whitening  Cream also contains Tanaka Extract which protects our skin from external pollutants, keeps skin cool and moisturized under hot weather. A must indeed for Singapore weather!

Not only protecting, it also contains Tranexamic Acid that helps to significantly brighten and even out skin tone, provides skin with trace mineral elements and precious herbal extracts such as ginseng, angelica and gingko. Lastly, lightens and prevents freckles, dark spots and pigmentation.

The Tanaka White 4X Serum has a floral scent and it is easy to keep and squeeze out from the bottle. Above picture is before applying the 4X Serum and right after application. You can see that the 4X Serum is being absorb well into my skin and the whitening effect takes place almost immediately. It leaves my face fresh and moist, not leaving any trace of stickiness. And I love the floral scent from the product itself.

Before and After apply Tanaka White Double Whitening Cream SPF 20
After applying the Tanaka White 4X Serum, I went on applying Tanaka White Double Whitening Cream SPF 20. The texture of the Double Whitening Cream is thicker than the Serum and a little sticky. Almost as immediate, after applying, the whitening cream really whiten up my skin and I can see the difference through the mirror. Even though it takes some time for the sticky feeling to go away, I do like the fact that the whitening essence brightens up my skin, giving it more radiance than before.

After a few days, I can see the difference on my skin as it looks brighter and less dull. I feel that my skin has given another chance to be pretty again. The spots on my face has lighten and overall my skin looks fairer again. It's been some time since my skin last look this fair. Thank you Bio-essence for these two improved products, Tanaka White 4X Serum and Tanaka White Double Whitening Cream SPF 20 ♥.  Now I can prep my skin to be a fair lovely bride for my big day in Sept.
