Sofitel So Bangkok! So FABULOUS.

When people think of Bangkok, luxury does not necessarily come straight to mind.

Most would think of the crowded, rowdy streets, bustling night markets, delicious and affordable Thai food – but at the mention of Bangkok these days, the FIRST thing that comes to MY mind is Sofitel So Bangkok.

I’ve had the utmost pleasure of staying at Sofitel So Bangkok twice in less than half a year, and I have to tell you, the second experience wasn’t any less impressive or awe-inspiring as the first one! It is, without a doubt, one of the best hotels I’ve ever had the good fortune to step foot into.

“Let your imagination run wild in a world of visionary expression and multi-sensory indulgence. Situated on the corner of Sathorn and Rama IV Roads Sofitel So Bangkok is an intrigue-steeped 5-star hotel with a resolutely contemporary outlook.

At the heart of it all The Tree of Life – an emblem designed by famed couturier and design legend Mr. Christian Lacroix – combines the five elements of Water Earth Wood Metal and Fire into uniting icon.
Discover these elements reflected in the design themes of the hotels luxury rooms and suites. Four leading Thai interior designers each bring to life Water Earth Wood and Metal with their own inspired vision.
Sensual experiences celebrate the French art de vivre in lavishly creative restaurants and bars So Spa and a variety of unique spaces – from the infinity pool to solarium to Club Signature to one-of-a-kind meeting wedding and event venues.

Overlook sparkling cityscapes and Lumphini Park from a very luxe perch. Captivate your senses. Live a high-tech lifestyle in a sky-high suite. Dine and wine. Work and play. Explore the elements in a stylishly modern Bangkok design hotel.”

From the moment you enter their doors, you’ll be immediately overcome with the realization that this. is. a. swanky. place. Although it is very much luxurious, Sofitel So Bangkok maintained a cosy and almost homely sort of atmosphere because the service was genuine and personal!

The entire hotel has contemporary artistic designs and fixtures that will leave you breathless, even their welcome drink was a lemongrass magical potion that consisted of three differently colored liquids – when mixed together, they turn into a bright purple shade!

Taking a quick hotel tour…

Their Club Signature lets you enjoy perks such as having high tea in the lounge during the afternoon and cocktails in the evening!

A display of the super intricately detailed staff uniform in the lounge, designed by Christian Lacroix, which the staff all proudly wear. There’s something to look or marvel at in every inch and corner around here.

Their infinity pool is absolutely gorgeous, with a sight like Lumphini Park to behold! They have a knack for allowing you to leave the rest of hectic far behind. The water is very welcoming because Bangkok’s weather is so humid and warm!

I was hopping excited to check out the hotel room we picked because Sofitel So Bangkok’s concept is unlike any other. The hotel has five elements which it is themed around – Water, Earth, Wood, Metal and Fire. Each type of room is completely different from the other, and they all sounded exceptionally inviting when I was reading through the description on their website.. I had a hard time deciding which beautiful room I wanted to call home for 3 days!


Earth Element {Wonder & Enrichment)
An enfolding haven adorned by Thai primeval wall paintings – mythical creatures, shadows flickering in the light.


Wood Element {Elegance & Tranquility}
Enter a calming oasis, murals sketched on silk evoking old Siam, alive with colour and the touch of a master.

Metal Element {Purity & Modernity} 
Frenetic Bangkok comes to a halt. A collage of metal, whites and glass. A transcendence of time and space.
Metal is actually my second favorite room after Water! It’s very clean and minimalist looking. Very white-centered. In my opinion, I feel like the Water room is best for couples, Metal for friends traveling together, Wood for business travelers and Earth for families!
My photos don’t do enough justice to the rooms.. they’re way more stunning in real life when your eyes and mind can actually conceptualize the widths, sights and angles of the whole carefully put-together room!


Water Element {Sophistication & Calm)
Organic curves like flowing water, onyx glowing against cool dark marble. Drink in skyline panoramas from every vantage point.

Check out that sexy tub!!!!!!!!! ♥_♥ The entire room oozes futuristic sexiness, and it’s the ideal couple hideaway!

Part of the Water theming was two fighting fishes placed on the desk! Love the attention to detail. It’s very, very endearing.

The magnificent view from our room. Who knew Bangkok could look so serene? Every morning we would look at people rowing their boats on the lake or jogging around the park!

Talk about state of the art – I was delighted to find that the TV came hooked up to a mac mini, which allowed me access to the internet (free wifi) & social media easily – you don’t need to lug your laptop with you!

With a room like this…. I don’t need to leave the hotel at all.

In fact, we didn’t.

Couldn’t resist jumping right in for a hot soak with overflowing bubbles. What would life be without bubble baths, really? The tub was so big, I could literally float around, spread out like a starfish. All while having views of Lumphini Park and listening to the music from the built in stereo system. My favorite part of the room!

We booked the So Comfy suite FYI. And yes it was really freakin’ c-o-m-f-y. I look a little cross eyed in this picture because I was struggling to keep my eyes open for this shot…..

..Usually, my trips to Bangkok are jam packed with activities and I’d spend most of the time walking and shopping until my feet ached, then frantically search for the nearest massage place.

This time, however, we decided to take it real slow and easy, spent our entire first day just fully discovering what this lovely place has to offer!

I was massaged into a pile of butter at So Spa.. as the therapist slowly worked my muscles, I felt all my aches and troubles melting away. I highly recommend the So Signature treatment which was nothing short of AMAZINGGGGGGGGGG. Worth every single cent. It wasn’t too hard or painful to endure, it was absolutely relaxing and invigorating at the same time. My idea of a perfect spa. The last thing I want during a massage is to experience discomfort and have my muscles ache even more afterwards so I avoided going for Thai massages.

So Spa had everything from the zen ambience, extensive range of pampering treatments to professional & skillful masseurs! It would be impossible to feel any sense of unhappiness in a place like this.

It’s not a proper holiday for me until I’ve got some good spa lovin’!

Don’t feel like facing Bangkok’s rush hour at night, or the terrifying jams?
The hotel’s got us covered with evening cocktails at their Club Signature, and a romantic candlelit dinner for two at their rooftop restaurant, Park Society!

Spoilt for choice. It’s been super long since the mister and I had gone to a fancy dinner like this. Dress up for a 2.5 hour at a nice place, just the two of us, drink wine, order lots of food, stare into Bangkok’s skyline, with little serious chatter in between but a lot of comfortable silences and gazing at each other… Just appreciating the food & company. I had the greatest time ever.

We ended up ordering what seemed like 1/3 of the whole delicious menu, because we just couldn’t decide what NOT to stuff our faces with!

Seared scallops with creamy chestnut puree, sauteed green veggie and chestnut foam

Pan seared foie gras with toasted brioche, fresh cherry, almost and cherry sauce

Snow fish, prawn ravioli, prawn & squid, sauteed veggies and bisque foam

Roasted beef tenderloin, more foie gras, sauteed asparagus & truffle sauce

Canadian lobster, asparagus, baby veggies and angel hair pasta in bisque foam

“Indulgence” would be a secere understatement. If I could use one word to describe our meal, I’d have to say it was gastronomic. We had originally intended to order desserts, but needless to say… we were overly stuffed. In the best possible way. Every calorie was gleefully devoured!

So stuffed in fact, that we had to take a picture from the back where you wouldn’t see our bulging tummies. LOL. Or maybe we just wanted a romantic picture. You decide which is the truth :P

Don’t miss out on a classy dinner date at Park Society when you stay at Sofitel So Bangkok!

All in all, Sam and I had an utterly unforgettable experience at Sofitel So Bangkok!

We are endlessly thankful to the So wonderful team for making our time there So darn enjoyable. So awesome!!!! SO FABULOUS. ;)

We honestly didn’t want to leave at all, and were very to go. Special thanks to Germaine for bringing us around on a tour of the premises and arranging everything  for us. We’ve recommended this hotel to all our friends, and I can’t wait till the next opportunity I have to return again.

Interested in booking Sofitel So Bangkok for your next trip? Check out their website for more details. You won’t regret it… You have my word.

Erabelle: Beauty In An Insant

Let’s talk beauty!

One of the most commonly overlooked features on a woman’s face and in her make up routine are her eyebrows.

I can’t reiterate enough what a massive impact having good or bad eyebrows could do for your overall outlook! I think eyebrows are just as important as your hairstyle. Yes, THAT big a deal!!! Your eyebrows can say so much about you as a person, and you can derive several things about a stranger you just met by stealing one quick glance at their eyebrows.

  • “I don’t really care about my looks / I don’t have time to groom myself” - Someone who has overgrown and messy eyebrows that have not been shaped recently / ever.
  • “I enjoy taking care of the way I look and I take great pride in my aesthetics” – What nicely groomed and neat eyebrows tell me.
  • “I am angry all the time!!! / I’m really unhappy about something right now” - Excessively bushy / think / dark / harsh eyebrows that can sometimes make you look more upset than you really are
  • “Oh really?” – Over plucked eyebrows will give you that constantly surprised or perplexed look. Not a good look.
  • “I have no idea what I’m doing” – Terribly drawn eyebrows / shapeless eyebrows.

And the list goes on! Of course, this is my personal opinion and does not necessarily accurately reflect the truth of a person, but when it comes to first impressions… One chance is all you’ve got. I’ve had my fair share of bad brow days. Super thick, super thin, too arched, too straight, too dark, too red, I’ve been there and done that (and never want to go back again!)

Honest to god, drawing nice eyebrows is one of the most difficult things a girl will ever have to do. Ever since I’ve gone down the path of eyebrow embroidery, I can’t imagine my life any other way!!! I wake up with good looking brows every single day. No effort whatsoever.

If you’re like many girls out there who need help with your brows (It’s ok to admit it), Erabelle is the perfect place to go to for a much needed brow & beauty makeover!

Erabelle is an expert in the brow industry, having acclaimed multiple awards for their brow services over the past 9 years, you know you’re in good hands!

-”Erabrowlogy is a holistic brow service with a pre-treatment step and boosted aftercare routine, to give beautiful and natural-looking brows that frame the face with enhanced colour retention. The effect is expected to last from 2 to 3 years.

This service will lend colour and depth to pale, faded or naturally sparse brows and can correct the shape and colour of poorly-tattooed eyebrows that downplay one’s attractiveness.
We believe that individuals have unique features and so the one-style-fits-all does not resonate with us. Pioneers of this technique, we understand that oriental features are distinctly different from our western counterparts and have since perfected the art of designing women’s eyebrows according to six common Asian face shapes. Customised to your face shape, the shape of brows will be tailored to perfectly frame your face and eyes and showcase your assets. The colour of dye is selected to complement skin tone and hair colour.”

A couple of other blogger friends & I were at Erabelle’s new outlet at Bugis Junction to check out a live demonstration of Erabrowlogy being done on a pretty (voluntary) model!

The EraBrowlogy Process


Step 1: Brow Preparation
A brow mask will be applied onto the brow area that removes dead skin cells and excess sebum, whilst hydrating the skin. This is especially advantageous for those with oily or dry skin, as unhealthy skin condition is a factor contributing to colour retention.

Step 2: Erabrow Design
Customisation design process includes face shape and eyebrow analysis, designing, trimming and tweezing. Creation of the perfect arch will then be done with Erabelle Long-Lasting Brow Pencil where shade is chosen accordingly to suit skin tone and hair colour.

Here are the 5 important aspects the therapist looks at when they design eyebrows:
1) Length of eyebrows
2) Thickness of eyebrows; determined by the distance between the brows and eyes, size of eyes, size of face and body frame
3) Shape and tip of the brow arch
4) Starting point of the brows – light and natural-looking
5) Ending point of the brows – complete and precise

Step 3: Patch Test
Patch test is done before procedure to test for any allergy to the certified colour pigment used.

Step 4: Preparation of Equipment
New Micropen tips and colour caps are used for every customer to ensure that strict hygiene standards are observed.

Step 5: Application of Colour
The Softstroke technique used coupled with topical numbing cream and micropen seeks to induce an experience of minimal discomfort.
In addition, photos will be taken pre- and post- treatment to monitor the results.

Here you can see that EraBrowlogy has been done on half of eyebrow, and it may look quite dark now, but that’s not the final product yet!
.
.
.


Ready to see the results you can achieve with EraBrowlogy in just one hour?!
Absolutely gorgeous eyebrows that she WON’T have to draw for at least the next 2 years with the full course of treatment & proper care!
There was no bleeding or much swelling involved, and at all times the model seemed perfectly relaxed and at ease, so pain factor should not be much of an issue thanks to the numbing cream, and advanced European technology / standards that Erabelle upholds. You can see a very faint outline of whiteness around her freshly done eyebrows due to mild swelling, but it’s nothing to take notice of and will fade within an hour or two. I’m in love with the natural results! You can save SO much time and never again have “bad brow days”, no matter what time you wake up. Even without make up, you can look put-together with nice eyebrows that frame your face.
The brow pampering doesn’t stop there! With every EraBrowlogy treatment session, you’ll get a Browlogy Care Kit, which includes:
Aftercare cream (5g) – To be applied every morning and night for at least 5 days of the colour-settling process
Hydra Cleansing Water (15ml) – For ease of cleansing, Hydra Cleansing Water can be used with cotton pads to cleanse the face, avoiding the brow area
Skin Calming Mask (5g) – To counter discomfort and redness after the procedure, it is recommended to use this mask for the 2nd, 3rd and 4th nights after the procedure for a soothing effect
Gal pal Yina & I were excited about getting a mini brow makeover! Even though we’ve had our eyebrows permanently done a year ago, it’s faded quite a lot so it’s high time for a brow update! 
Only when you get EraBrowlogy done do you get to lie on this super comfy reclining chair (yes my therapist is putting on socks for me to maintain the hygiene of the place and it helps keep my feet warm too!) Because all the other normal seats were taken up by eager ladies, they assigned me to the luxurious seating! Hehe.
My therapist then proceeds to explain to me what my face shape is (long + heart shape) and what kind of eyebrow structure would suit it. She lamented that one of my brow bone is significantly higher than the other, thus making my eyebrows look a little unbalanced sometimes.. but she would try to correct that for me!
With her trusty set of Erabelle tools.. she begins reshaping my brow story! Getting rid of unwanted hairs, trimming and snipping and brushing away ever so delicately and concisely…
After the process is completed, she shows me the “Before & After” photos she’d taken of me for comparison.. and here it is for your good judgement!
The difference may not be outrightly obvious, however I’ve noticed that she has corrected the color of my eyebrows to better suit my skin and hair color (a very dark brown, close to black) as opposed to having reddish brown eyebrows (because I used to have purple hair, I had lighter eyebrows) 
My therapist also elongated the length of my eyebrows, giving it a more defined tip, resulting in a more polished look! (note: these results are temporary, I did not do EraBrowlogy) As I had very little brow hair to begin with, my difference was not as striking and amazing as Yina’s!!!

Look at her Before & After:

Now THIS makes a convincing case!!!!! 

Yina’s been blessed with thick, bushy eyebrows that can be beautifully shaped into different structures, and she chose a relatively “straight, low arch” soft brow look AKA the korean eyebrow! I am so jealous of her eyebrows. Why do I have so much armpit hair, nose hair.. but no eyebrow hair?!

The both of us all happy with our brow makeover from Erabelle!
Thank you Erabelle for a wonderful pampering session, the next time I’ll be sure to come back to try out their facials, the treatment rooms are too cute, themed differently according to fairytales!
Erabelle puts great emphasis on the environment of their boutiques, making it feel cosy, posh and whimsical all at once. Their therapists are also all wearing beautiful feminine kimonos to represent the great service that Japan is known for, and the kind of service they strive to provide you with!

Eu Yan Sang – Weight Management Program Post 6

I have a secret to admit.

I’m not the fastest runner. I think that’s got to do with the fact that I almost never run, at all. Even if I’m exercising, I would choose swimming and badminton over actual jogging. It just seems less tiring (yeah I do understand the point of exercise is to work your muscles) so when I was told that I’m supposed to run 5km one day for SHAPE RUN 2013 in conjunction with my Eu Yan Sang blog posts..

I freaked.

I would cringe so badly at the mention of even 1km. 5km?! I can’t remember the last time I ran half a km!  For your information, I’ve never done any 2.4kms during NAPFA tests. I’d skipped all NAPFA tests in school because 1) I was lazy and skipping stuff in school was my best subject and 2) I had a long term medical certificate for anemia. Having low blood pressure and anemia means I’m prone to spontaneous fainting spells & black outs, usually triggered by fatigue, lack of oxygen and vigorous exercise. I’m totally not kidding. I used to have scary black outs even while not exercising, all the time….. so I wasn’t going to risk it. Since I was in primary school, I’ve had to take medication to boost iron that produces healthy red blood cells. Perhaps it’s because I grew up very used to vbeing physically inactive, that this lifestyle habit carried on into my adult life, regrettably! It all makes sense now, lol.

Ok. grandmother story aside… one fine morning, like it or not, I woke up at 5am and hauled my ass down to Nicoll Highway where SHAPE RUN 2013 was held!!!

When I got there, I was surprised to find throngs of enthusiastic women who seemed very excited to gather and mass move our bodies together in a forward direction.

Can’t say I didn’t feel confused by their enthusiasm at first, but after the run, I now understand the sense of satisfaction that comes with these runs.

I met up with 3 of the winners (Pamela, MaryAnn, Christy) featured in my previous blog post, who were a lot brighter faced and cheerier than I was at 6:50am!

They’re all undergoing Eu Yan Sang’s Weight Management Program (the same one I did before) and this run is part of the whole arrangement. We were missing Adeline, our 4th winner however she was sick that day, and could not attend.

We packed our things into the lockers provided, got into the line and at 7am sharp, we started running!
By running I mean, er, alternating brisk walking and jogging. Ok fine a lot of walking!!!!!

Game faces on, and we’re gonna do this together!!!

The weather was very merciful, giving us slight breezes every now and then, and it was actually rather pleasant despite me huffing and puffing away. I felt refreshed and energetic after a few minutes of jogging. It’s quite motivating to jog with thousands of other runners because you feel like you’re all in this together!

 No one’s here to judge each other, there were women of all ages, races, shapes and sizes gathered to achieve one common goal : Complete the 5 kilometers, and to feel good about themselves for making a healthy lifestyle choice!

The first 1km was quite easy, which went by in the blink of an eye. I overtook the other 3 EYS winners at one point, and was happily jogging away, feeling extremely good. However….. soon, somewhere along the 1.5km to 2km mark, I started to lao hong and slow down a lot. HAHA and everyone ran past me. See la, hao lian at the start.

I took every photo opportunity I could get, but actually I just wanted a valid reason to stop running even for just a few seconds and not look like a loser, lol wtf.

 I chugged along slowly and kept telling myself, “You can do this. YOU CAN DO THIS!!!!!” while Dory from Finding Nemo kept singing in an Ellen Degeneres voice, swimming around inside my head. I am 99% not found to be awake at 7am through 365 days a year, so the very fact that I was doing this seriously impressed me already. As you can tell, I’m easily impressed. :P



SOOOOOOOO HAPPY when I saw the water station!!!! When I took my first sip….

Ahhh, the gift of life! Look at that tortured face.

Remember what I said about every photo opportunity?

Anyway, this is Pamela, whom I didn’t recognize from her picture because she looks so much younger now and slimmer after losing some weight!!! She maintained the happy vibe throughout the whole run and in my opinion, did the best out of all of us. Job well done, Pam!

Well, after about an hour (to be exact 1 hour 8 mins) I REACHED THE FINISH LINE!!!!!! WOOHOOO. I played “We Are The Champions” from my phone, intending to sprint the last 200m but I was really too tired and walked all the way instead. -_- I know fit people only take 30 mins for 5km… but whatever… People are good at different things. Some at running, others at making nice looking cakes. :’D

WHAT DOES ACTUAL TIMING MATTER!! All I know is, I MADE IT! When I wasn’t even sure if I could wake up and get out of bed at 5am that morning. I’m proud of myself, and the other 3 girls!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Well done Pamela, Christy and MaryAnn!

Big big thanks go out to Jayne, my lovely Nuffnang manager who encouraged me from the start and even participated in the run herself to accompany me!!!! Every time I told her, “Jayne. I cannot. I DIE” she will say

“JESS!!!!!!!!! YOU CAN ONE!!!!!!!” Awww she’s such a sweetheart!!! ♥ ♥ ♥

Donning my SHAPE RUN 2013 medal and new Skechers running shoes, yay!!!

With a little heart, some hope and a lot of hard work…. you can make decisions that will change your life. If there ever is a 5km run again, I don’t mind doing it with friends, because it’s actually pretty fun! The post-run sense of achievement and feeling is great, and unlike any normal work out I’ve been through. It was more like a journey, than just exercise. It was the first time doing something like this for all of us, but with moderate eating & help from Eu Yan Sang’s Weight Management Program, we came through!

.
.
.
.
.
.

Now, we asked Adeline and Christy how they felt after 3 months of undergoing the Weight Management Program, and here’s what they said! I have inserted my own comments in blue.

Interview with Adeline:

• The weight management program jump started my slimming process
• Did not engage in much exercise on my own during the program. However, due to the nature of my job as • a locations manager with the media, I am often outdoors, and I do a lot of walking (it always helps to have a more active lifestyle!)
• Ate my prescribed herbal medicine daily
• Did not visit my physician on a frequent basis (the treatment would be more effective with frequent and disciplined visits to your physician, of course)

How do you feel now?

Appearance wise, it is good. My colleagues & my children’s teachers asked if I had lost weight and stated that they could see a difference!
Health wise, I’ve observed more frequent bowel movement and urination, meaning an increased effectiveness in toxic expulsion. (I had very regular toilet trips while on my treatment, btw. #noshameinadmitting)energy level is also higher than before, along with a more controlled diet. In the past I used to crave for certain foods when feeling stressed. Now, my cravings have decreased and I eat in moderation.


Overall experience of the treatment:

My friendly physician prevents me from feeling pressurized during the procedures (This is really important as it motivates you instead of making you feel worse!)
First time doing acupuncture in my entire life! More than twenty needles were used for every session. Initially I was nervous, but the pain was bearable. There was no psychological barrier and with time, the experience gets better. However, I felt that it was rather boring to have to lie down for two hours every session because I am an active person. (Adeline did 1 hour of acupuncture each on her front and back for every session, not every one has the same treatment duration)
I also did cupping once in a while and found cupping effective, not minding the temporary marks.

On the whole, Adeline feels that this program is a healthy and gradual method of losing weight. The results are visible and the weight does not rebound, unlike with the use of slimming pills. She has even recommended the program to her colleagues and friends.

Adeline consults Physician Zhang Rui Fen at Eu Yan Sang TCM Wellness Clinic @ Jurong East.



How do you feel about the Eu Yan Sang Weight Management program?

Intially, I was a bit skeptical as the program needs to consume TCM. Working in the hospital, I’ve seen how some patients came in with TCM induced liver problems. I have not consumed any TCM before the start of the program.

What was the treatment like?
I didn’t have an issues with the needles and was not afraid of pain. (Most common feedback I’ve heard from people who’ve tried this treatment is that the needles pain is quite bearable) Physician Lin was always thoughtful to ask me if I felt any pain. At first, the herbal medication was a bit hard to swallow, but after a while, I got used to the taste. Physician Lin also did cupping on me based on my symptoms. (I never did cupping during my treatment, so every treatment is actually customized to each individual)


Is it what you expected?
Yes, I knew that this program has to adhere to TCM and acupunture.


Was it tough keeping to the program? Did the physician help/ encourage you so that you can keep to the program?
As I am doing shift work, it was hard to go for my treatments twice a week. I tried my best to turn up for appointments every week. Physician Lin was very encouraging, always keeping track of what I eat and what activites have I done to improve my weight loss. (I find it helpful that my physician keeps track of these things for me – it’s so easy to lose track of your lifestyle habits when you’re not paying attention!!!)


How has your overall health improved?
My intital weight when I went for my first consultation was 104kg. My current weight now is 99 kg.
I have since changed my lifestyle and eating habits, as Physician Lin will always ask me not to take carbs for dinner. I have since included more greens and healthy food. I am also not so lethargic as I used to be.
