[Toggle Originals] VIC维多利亚的模力 Drama Review


Vicky takes part in a reality show “Fresh Off The Runway”, hoping to become a top model. The executive producer of the show, Cao Shi Ren hopes to create buzz in the media, and resorts to sending anonymous death threats to one of the contestants who happens to be Vicky. One thing leads to another, until one day she is accidentally electrocuted. The CEO of Victory Property, Victoria Lek happens to be visiting the set, gets entangled in the accident and ends up in Vicky’s body ! Her own body has gone missing! She has no choice but to continue in Vicky’s body as a contestant in the reality show.


Recently, I have completed watching VIC维多利亚的模力, this drama was shown exclusively on toggle.

Personally, I thought that this series was engaging and had a refreshing plot. I enjoyed the build up and progress in each episode.  It constantly kept me in suspense with the different situation presented. It was nice seeing individuals, with different personality come together to acheive the same goal.

Throughout the reality show, it depicted the ugly side of a human where one would play hard just not to get elimiated. Certain things happen for a reason and those were revealed in the finale. Kudos to Carrie Wong acting capabilities as her role, Vicky. Nicely portrayed.

Review of Lynn Aesthetic Facial Treatment


I was invited by Lynn Aesthetic to do a facial treatment by Sample Store! This is definitely a good chance to know more about my skin’s condition and find out how they could resolve my problem. Lynn Aesthectic's has a cosy and relaxing ambience which customers can look forward to while receiving the treatments.


I was served with a cup of red dates tea while waiting for my therapist, Kerine. As you can see, there are 2 lovely frangipani placed beside the tea along with mint candy. I was also asked to fill up the facial consultation card for record purposes.




Here at Lynn Aesthetic's, there are different themed rooms that are decorated based on a "theme". Each individual therapist will take charge of their own room. Customers can also choose any one of the rooms without extra charges. 


Kerine told me that my skin was rather dry. Given my skin condition, I was recommended to do lift & shape energy booster treatment. This helps to create youthful looking skins, helping to fight visible signs of aging and relieve stress at the same time.

1) Cleanse 
2) Tone 
3) Gommage peel 
4) Steam – Skin scrubbing (machine), suction 
5) Oxygenating Serum/ Detox Gel/ Collagen Whitening Serum/ Hydrating Gel/ Slimlook Gel (customize by skin) 
6) Lip, eye care 
7) Co2 Cream Mask 
8) Toning, cream, sunblock 


Glowing skin after the treatment!


Kerine was attentive and friendly to my needs. Best of all, I experienced the 2 hours treatment in a clean and relaxing environment. I am also delighted to see improvements on my clogged pores.

After the treatment, I was served with grapes & yogurt along with a cup of red dates tea. Honestly, the desserts are really good. This treatment is going at $180. If you are a 1st time customer, you will receive a 30% off trial promotion treatment!

One of the tapas offerings which was memorable.
The combination of the meatballs with the apple sauce is just too good!

The sea prawns are fresh, topped with garlic & drenched in olive oil.
I'm loving the fragrant of the garlic that complements well those prawns.

This was appetising and simply great. Think of the thin pasta infused with
black squid ink that comes along with the big boston lobster!

[Singapore Drama Review] Code of Law S4


The 4th season of Code of Law will explore more hard - hitting and headline cases of brutal or heinous crimes that shocked Singapore. This season sees the return of familiar favourites like lawyers Jacob Fernandez, Stephanie Szeto and Sanjay Devaraj, along with Razali Hamzah, Nick Han and Audrey Soh from the police force. Each week, the team of investigators must race against time to solve crimes and bring the perpetrators to justice. The 11 - episode series will pack in captivating new characters and plot twists, including one of a serial killer, Derek Ho played by Desmond Tan. Derek Ho leads a double life. A suave and charming high - flying banker by day and by night, a murderer with an abnormal psychological gratification for killing. He is introduced to Stephanie and soon, the two are dating. Danger looms as their relationship develops.


Just finished watching this channel 5 series - Code of Law S4 on toggle. Honestly, I did not watch the previous season for it. Since mediacorp heavily publicised it on various media platforms, I decided to catch it. And true enough, it was commendable. This is definitely one of the shows that I would follow closely.

Particularly, I enjoyed the progression in each episodes, which led me to ponder and followed them closely. There are many intense and thrilling moments which hightened the show.

The finale had an unexpected twist but however, ended abruptly. I am sure to expect a sequel for this suspenseful film. Kudos to Desmond Tan acting capabilities. I guess it was probably his first time to play as a vicious psycho person and he did well!

[Movie Review] Ramen Teh 情牵拉面茶


Masato, a young Ramen chef, leaves his hometown in Japan to embark on a culinary journey to Singapore to find out the truth about his past. He uncovers a lot more than family secrets and delicious recipes.


Watched Ramen Teh 情牵拉面茶 with mummy at GV Paya Lebar yesterday evening. 

Personally, I thought that this film was simple with a focused story-line but somewhat, predictable. Initially, it may appear rather slow-paced but thankfully, the progression of each scenes gradually got better with a conducive plot. Its definitely more lively when Uncle Wee (Mark Lee) started to appear on screen. 

Though the highlight were particularly on those few characters, the story itself was still engaging. It educated viewers to let go of the grudges, learn to accept and forgive your loved ones. It also reminded me the importance of kinship and cherish them dearly.

If you are a avid food lover/food blogger, I believe you will relate and appreciate this film better. A heart-warming story filled with emotions and a taste of local flavour.

[Singapore-Thai Drama Review] Missing


Thirty years ago, Sean’s brother, Sam, went missing. Having since worked his way up and been commissioned as an Inspector in the CID’s Special Investigation Section, Sean gained access to narrow down his search to Bangkok, Thailand in hope of reuniting with his long - lost brother. On one such trip, Sean encounters Lynn, a jaded, self - serving tour leader who makes him out to be a pervert and child kidnapper, and gets him arrested. There they meet Aut, a high - flying, hot - shot Thai Inspector who seems to care more about his image than police work and, at the same time, is suspiciously familiar with the local gangs. Thus their lives collided and become intertwined, and what started as one man’s search for his brother, quickly turns into a dangerous foray into the underbelly of an international human trafficking syndicate.



Just finished watching this channel 5 series - Missing. Before the show started, mediacorp has heavily publicised this Singapore-Thai production. I decided to catch it because I'm always a fan of such genre. When I discovered that it was from wawa's production, I'm sure this would be good. And true enough, it was commendable.

Personally, I thought that the drama had a focused story-line. The progression in each episodes led me to ponder and followed them closely. There were touching, intense and thrilling moments which hightened the show. At the same time, it strongly reminded me the importance of kinship.

The finale had an unexpected twist and ended rather abruptly. I am expecting a sequel for sure. Kudos to Pierre png acting capabilities once again. A versatile actor indeed! Not to leave out, Rebecca Lim on her role as Lynn. Good job!

[Movie Review] Tomb Raider


Lara Croft, the fiercely independent daughter of a missing adventurer, must push herself beyond her limits when she finds herself on the island where her father disappeared. From Warner Bros. Pictures and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures. 


Watched Tomb raider with Grace at filmgarde leisure park kallang! Personally, I thought that the story was rather direct and fast-paced. Also, there were many intense moments which kept me at the edge of the seat. A pity that the story lack depth as it focused more on the above-mentioned. Certain scenes appear rather vague and "too good to be true".

Though the twist of the plot may appear predictable, it was well-presented with those amazing fight scenes. In order for viewers to grasp the show better, you have to pay close attention to piece them together. With Daniel Wu's appearance, it definitely made this film an interesting piece.

If you are into thriller and action-packed movies, I guess you would adore this pretty much.

As he works against the clock to solve the puzzle, he realizes a deadly plan is unfolding and is unwittingly caught up in a criminal conspiracy. One that carries life and death stakes, for himself and his fellow passengers.


Watched The Commuter at Shaw lido earlier yesterday evening! This film was released last month, on 11 January. Since then, I've always wanted to catch it. Thankfully, there was still show-time available over at Shaw theatres.

Personally, I enjoyed this film as a whole package. It was well-crafted with a good story flow. It had many intense moments which certainly kept me at the edge of my seat. Not to miss out those action scenes that were nicely depicted. Overall, it was suspenseful and had an unexpected twist as though I'm watching a Japanese film. An engaging movie indeed.

If you adore such genre of film, do catch it on Shaw lido before it go off screen!
