You guys know my love for NYX, they have been a staple in my kit ever since I have started my beauty journey. NYX treads the line of affordable & quality makeup and have always been an inspiration in the beauty industry with their vibrant outlook and daring take on beauty.
Having relaunched this year in Singapore under the L'Oreal family, NYX entrance was strong with the game starting at having a counter in Sephora to having their own standalone shop in just 8 months! Literally so happy for their success and can't wait to see what they have in stored for us in the coming years!
Hola!! I am so excited to write this post to share more about my acne journey with you darlings. You guys have heard me rant since forever about my crazy acne-prone skin. Today, we are exploring a new facial resurfacing technology to get rid of hideous acne scars.
Backstory, I have been on tons of drugs from Doxycycline to the infamous Accutane. They were all temporary cures and even now at 22, I am still suffering from acne... Have been in a HATE-HATE relationship with acne for 10 years.... is this what a long-term relationship feels like?!! As of today, I still do have frequent breakouts but they are much more controlled compared to the volcanic face I had 2 years ago.
Recently, I had the wonderful opportunity to celebrate The Club's first anniversary & launch of their new dining concept, The Disgruntled Brasserie. Housed in a 19th century colonial building that is nestled in the hip area of Ann Siang, The Club is a luxury boutique hotel that features 20 luxurious rooms, inclusive of two of the most stunning suites to unwind in.
We were first ushered into the lobby called Mr & Mrs Maxwell's (how cute!) for some drinks to catch up among ourselves before the event started. Mr & Mrs Maxwell's, specially decorated to resemble a cosy living room, is the perfect place for us to hang out after a long day. I honestly could not even get myself to leave the comfy sofa that was situated in the corner of the room! (also partly because I was in heels ;P)
The theme for the anniversary party of The Club was Golden Gatsby which explains all the fancy furnishings and exquisite ornaments. We had a sumptuous dinner that was served at the newly launched Disgruntled Brasserie, which is a casual take on its predecessor, The Disgruntled Chef.
The Disgruntled Brasserie has a more relaxed environment, furnished with warm lights, luxurious wood tables and comfy sofas. I personally enjoyed the photo wall that is a reminiscent of The Club's iconic heritage as it feature pictures of local hawkers and street traders in the olden times.
Kicked off with an awesome plate of Canapés (less atas description: appetisers, starters. You're welcome!).
My favourite, surprisingly, was the Duck & Chicken Liver Parfait. Ate this without knowing what it was because I was too hungry to read the menu and it was one of the best things I have ever tasted! If I knew it was liver, I would probably not eat it but now I am hooked! It has a sweet aftertaste to it which reminds of me desserts. And I LOVE DESSERTS.
The other canapés are equally tasty as well. Would definitely recommend getting their canapés for a start especially if you are having business meetings. You get to fill your tummy with delectable food without the hassle of any unglamorous moments of stuffing a burger in your mouth. ;)
For mains, we had the BEST Baked Miso Cod & a very hearty Foie Gras Beef Burger. I am swooning over the Baked Miso Cod as it is such a perfect blend of flavours. Perfectly timed, the cod was piping hot with the meat still soft and tender. It was accompanied by some pickled daikon to tickle your tastebuds and mushy peas to wrap everything up. One word, perfect. This cod is so good that I am actually planning a birthday dinner for my mom because she needs to try it, in fact, everyone needs to try it. Haha having a serious fish obsession now, I shall stop.
The Foie Gras Beef Burger is really special as the Foie Gras is actually in the middle of the beef patty! How cool is that? The burger tastes amazing as well. The beef patty was extremely juicy and the having the foie gras enveloped in the middle is probably one of the most indulgent experience.
Sorry no pictures for desserts cuz' I literally devoured the Lemon Tart without even thinking. I know.... food makes me go crazy sometimes but ya know, I gotta be there for my lemon tart!! Lemon tarts are my favourite! ^^
Aside from the delicious food and casual dining experience at The Disgruntled Brasserie, The Club also houses B28, an underground whiskey bar that is tucked away at the basement. How cool?! Tagged the "home" of jazz, B28 has their resident jazz band, The Nicole Duffell Organ Trio that plays one of the most intoxicating tunes. No wonder this quaint little jazz bar has a full house every weekend! Had one of their whiskey blends by their skilled bartenders and it was indeed very tasty.
Of course, a glass of whiskey is never enough, we went ahead to spend some time at the first Peruvian-inspired rooftop bar in Singapore (also housed in The Club), Tiger's Milk. Isn't the place stunning? Had to take a quick shot because I am obsessed with the decor. Tiger's Milk is definitely a more fun and relaxing place to chill with your mates after a long day.
Little overview of how the room looks like in the day, perfect for a staycation to unwind from all the bustle. Might I add, the view is pretty good especially in the night. ;)
My favourite part of the room? This breathtaking bathroom. I know, this bathroom is anybody's dream. So many of you asked me where this was on Snapchat. Now you know, it is the bathroom of The Club's Suite! This is huge, spacious and just simply stunning. Told everyone that I can stay in this bathroom forever HAHA. I mean come on, imagine waking up to this and having breakfast by the tub? YAS!
