BRAND’S® InnerShine® RubyCollagen Review

Experience collagen at its finest with BRAND'S® InnerShine® latest breakthrough innovation - RubySignatureTM formula. 

Unlike normal collagen, RubySignature™ formula is created with a unique and precious blend of ingredients derived from natural sources. It contains micro-collagen and one of mother nature’s most powerful antioxidants, astaxanthin (micro-algae extract). Scientifically proven, its anti-oxidant power is 6000 times more powerful than Vitamin C, 800 times more powerful than CoQ10 and 500 times more powerful than Vitamin E.

We all know collagen is necessary to support the skin’s structural foundation to improve firmness and elasticity for youthful and supple skin. Astaxanthin serves as the perfect complement by acting as a natural shield against the collagen-depleting procedure. In containing both micro-collagen and astaxanthin, RubySignature™ formula defies the ageing process by performing a vital triple-action of supplying collagen, protecting against collagen degradation and delivering collagen effectively to skin cells. Designed to complement your topical skincare routine - in 6 weeks, experience skin rejuvenating power with  BRAND’S® InnerShine® RubyCollagen Essence*. Daily consumption will help to ensure that your body is adequately supplied with the essential nutrients for optimal skin support and protection. For optimum efficacy, it is recommended that BRAND’S® InnerShine® RubyCollagen be consumed twice daily to experience the skin age-reversing difference in 6 weeks*.

*Results may vary according to individuals

After my recent beach getaway (more on Instagram @OYHZ), I definitely need new RubyCollagen Essence range by BRAND’S® InnerShine® even more to fight the collagen-depleting rays of the sun. 

If I had been reminded earlier, I would have brought with me a few bottles or stripes for the holiday. Still, better late than never! In order to fend of the visual signs of aging, it is necessary to not only replenish lost collagen, but also prevent further collagen degradation in the skin from occurring. Inspired by this insight, BRAND’S® InnerShine® developed RubySignature™, a formulation designed specifically to challenge the existing paradigm in anti-aging skin care.

Both packaging are rather slim and compact for slotting into our ladies bags :) This is how you could simply bring it along for a day trip or for consumption!

If you had read my previous review on the marine collagen here, I personally find that the RubyCollagen Essence suits my palate better with the more tangy taste.  BRAND’S® InnerShine® RubyCollagen Essence is infused with natural pomegranate juice that gives the invigorating and zesty flavour. Being so delicious, it is certainly an added bonus to addressing the needs of aging skin.

I had been drinking BRAND’S® InnerShine® RubyCollagen Essence for the past week and so far my skin has been recovering well from the slight sunburnt on my cheeks. The burnt cheeks didn’t turn patchy or flaky (thankfully!) and the bumps that appeared on my face right after the trip are disappearing fast. This may be the effect of the RubyCollagen Essence, coupled with the hydrating and soothing products I spammed right after I got home. Plus some deep-cleansing and exfoliating masks which I have been more diligently using too. 

According to Isabella Tan, Vice President and General Manager of Cerebos Pacific Limited Singapore, Brunei, and Philippines, “The creation of the RubyCollagen Essence range has enabled BRAND’S® InnerShine® to capitalize on an underserved realm within the anti-aging beauty space, addressing women’s needs for a more complete and holistic anti-aging skin care regimen that also nourishes from the inside out.”

There are 2 formats to RubyCollagen:

1. BRAND’S® InnerShine® RubyCollagen Essence (50ml x 12) SGD $62.90

2. BRAND’S® InnerShine® RubyCollagen Essence Strip (15g x 10): SGD $36.00

Singaporean youths are a trendy and sophisticated bunch. They love keeping up to date with the latest trends and are always in-the-know about everything and anything new under the sun. In recent years, the influence of Japanese and Korean culture and cuisine is getting increasingly prevalent. Many Singaporeans have fallen in love with the rich Japanese culture and exciting Korean pop and fashion trends. Most importantly, we have all fallen for their delicious food offerings!  

I'm pretty sure everybody is familiar with KFC in Singapore.
Kentucky Fried Chicken Management Pte Ltd is the leading quick-service restaurant chain in the chicken category in Singapore. KFC is renowned for serving its customers delicious, complete family meals at affordable prices. The first KFC restaurant in Singapore was opened in 1977, and there are now 87 restaurants island-wide. KFC a.m. was introduced in November 2007 and is now served at 68 of its restaurants. The company also provides KFC Delivery as part of its commitment to meet the needs of consumers. There are more than 19,400 KFC restaurants in 120 countries and territories around the world. KFC Corporation is a subsidiary of Yum! Brands, Inc., Louisville, Ky. (NYSE: YUM.)  To find out more about KFC in Singapore, please visit

Rising to the occasion, KFC introduces the all-new KFC Wings – Freshly breaded in-store with a special batter, these juicy wings are cooked to crispy perfection and coated in two bold flavours. Choose either the Umadare sauce (a tangy yet savoury Japanese sauce) or the Yang Yeum sauce (a Korean-inspired sweet and spicy sauce) - you’ll definitely find a flavour you simply can’t get enough of!  

The KFC Wings is also paired with the new 7Up Lemon Mint, which allows you to enjoy the refreshing flavour of lemon paired with a cool burst of mint. You can now enjoy the KFC Wings in an a la carte set of 4 pcs (choice of 1 flavour) at only $4.90, or go for the Wings Rice Bento Set which comes with 4 pcs Wings (choice of 1 flavour), fragrant chicken rice, a side salad and a regular 7Up Lemon Mint at only $6.90! 

After trying out both wings, I picked the Umadare wings (if you had seen my IG)! Finished off 4 Umadare wings and 2 Yang Yeum wings on my own, cos they're simply so yummy. The 2 flavours so good it’s almost impossible to make a choice! Pick a side and be part of KFC’s greatest wing-off today. To pledge your allegiance to your favourite flavour, upload a post on Instagram and hashtag #kfcoishii to support the Umadare flavour or #kfcmashisoyo to support the Yang Yeum flavour.

Hurry down to the nearest KFC now!

Tips for Singapore Internship

I'm pretty sure most of the local tertiary students have gone through some form of internships in Singapore, at least once in a lifetime, right? I had been through Singapore internship once personally, during my uni days. 
Though mine was a modest, short 2.5-month stint, I thought I should still share some tips on acing in internships :) Ok, I wouldn't say I had excelled in my internship exactly la (though I remember I did score an A for it), but it got me a permanent position one year before my graduation at least! Besides, these tips are adequately simple and may be helpful in other areas in life too!

Set goals
Even if it may be a short internship like mine, set some goals you want to achieve in these few months. You may wanna do it with your supervisor so that he/she can guide you along to set practical and measurable goals. Otherwise, doing it on your own is fine too, especially if it’s a self-sourced internship that doesn’t require you to report back to school, or you’re paiseh or afraid that you may not achieve the goals and don’t want a third-party to know.

Stay open and adaptable 
We would all have our own reasons for doing a certain internship with a certain scope at a certain company or location – our ideals. However, we all learnt that ideals may not be realizable more often than not. It is not uncommon for interns to perform work that are out of your expected scope or even get shared by a different department sometimes. Stay open and adapt fast. Unless those additional tasks are overwhelming that it affects your fundamental reason for doing that internship, raise the issue and discuss it with the supervisor.

Set right remuneration expectation
With so many employment portals available online, it’s easy to do a benchmarking of what you’re getting against market rates. However though, keep in mind that the work experience and exposure matters more in an internship than the money. I would stay in an industry or company or position for internship even if I get paid peanuts or only transport allowance because it is an industry/company/position I like or would benefit me in the long run. That is what I believe in personally, otherwise, find a permanent job instead!

Be helpful
After experiencing real work after I’d graduated, I came to realize helpful people are very much appreciated. You may not be the smartest of the lot, but if you could take initiative / some extra effort to help someone out, it will benefit both parties greatly! You learn something new, the other party gets task done more quickly (because 2 brains are better than 1). I guess this applies everywhere in life!

Stay in contact
Well, ideally stay in contact with colleagues and superiors so that they can keep you in the loop when there is an open position after your internship. I got an offer before my internship ended, and got transferred to my requested department. Nonetheless, I still made an effort to stay in contact with my peers and seniors because we have so much shared memories in that few months of joy/struggles. Also, in future, those faces will be the ones you will see daily at work and some may even become your closer friends because they totally understand you in terms of work/career! 

Now, that’s all I have for internship Singapore. What’s yours? :)

Search for Part-Time Jobs in Singapore

Hello! Hope everyone is doing fine! Of late, there seems to be a wave of job switch, particularly in two specific circles of friends I know ;) One, due to organization restructuring or economizing in this downturn (how long would oil prices take to recover?). The second group is of the younger ones, relatively fresh-from-school/schooling type who are looking to explore different career opportunities. Nonetheless, the intermission results in them either embarking on a full-fledge lonnnggggg holiday (minority), or doing some leisure work in the meanwhile (majority) - thus our recent chats have been flooded with things like job search, good portals and interview experiences, haha!

To be honest, I didn’t have much part-time experience till date. So, to join in the hype and understand what some of my friends are going through, I started browsing the few known job portals such as jobstreet; jobsdb; monster; and downloading related apps like glassdoor even. Coincidentally, I was also introduced to this site which holds more focus on part time jobs in Singapore.

So, if you're in a similar situation, here's sharing with you 5 interesting or pretty well-paid (during my era, a part-time job pays only like $4-5/hr, now it has doubled!) positions I've found when searching for part time jobs singapore!

1) Brain Trainer

Seriously? If only this was around when I was still studying!

2) Parttime Gamemaster

This is just such a fun job! 'nuff said.

3) Super Social Media Specialist

Get paid to post on social media!

4) 2 -6 Months Contact Bank Admin Assistant x 5 ($7 - $9/hr)

Interested in a permanent banking job in future?
This may be just the right kick start to sussing out the environment!

5) Outdoor Sales Promoter ($10/hr + Comm)

This can earn you almost as much as a fresh grad's average hourly salary~


I think these part time jobs for students are pretty cool, and earns some good pocket money ;) 
Do you have any interesting part time job experiences? Share with me! ;)

As a leader in Singapore’s beauty salon industry, Chez Vous boldly stands firm on the social media stage against all things digital when it comes to beauty.

The aim of its latest campaign, #chezvousbeautyisreal, is to liberate women from those unrealistic beauty standards and prove that beauty is attainable, tangible and empowering (#therealme).

In an unprecedented move, on the 7th June 2015, Chez Vous offers every woman, regardless of age and race, the opportunity to experience a full makeover session when they visit Chez Vous @ Ngee Ann City. Every customer is guaranteed no photoshopping and no digital enhancements, just pure pampering bliss.

Chez Vous: shā vu\adj Your Place. In French, ‘vis’ akin to Your House

When Chez Vous opened 20 years ago, its founders Thomas Teo and Riz Tan were committed to providing hair services at the highest standards, garnering a loyal following and putting them among the most sought after stylists in Singapore. Today, it is a 2,000 sq ft beauty powerhouse located in the heart of Orchard Road, offering a cutting edge range of signature treatments in an unpretentious yet sophisticated designer interior layout. With a one-of-a-kind “OHDA” (i.e. Only Hair Directors Allowed) policy in place, the salon ensures an unparalleled roster of beauty experts so that clients receive only the best service and advice in creating their individual style. OHDA means their beauty experts are Associate Salon Directors, Directors & Chief Directors only with minimum 10 years of experience, and many were previously salon owners themselves, or academy trainers, leading stylists and salon managers. Not only catered to the local scene, it also houses a Caucasian Specialist Team which has been reviewed and verified by Expat Living and Sassy Singapore editors.

Chez Vous’s vision has remained steadfast since its inception: to inspire possibilities, as well as provide 100% reliability and expertise through their accomplished hair maestros, to produce every customer’s true personality and glamour – in other words, keeping it all real. Because today’s digitised world now highlights beauty standards that most of the time are unrealistic – from body shapes to ageless faces and an infinite number of hair trends – Chez Vous, now more than ever, makes it a point to ensure that their approach is holistic, practical, real and always a pampering experience for its customers.

Chez Vous initiated the Expertligent Fix You Programme which sounds like savior for all beauty addicts who often experiment with new products or technologies, and more often than not, damage our own hair/skin/body :( Chez Vous’ team of directors-only hair professionals will receive any customers who have had unsatisfactory treatments or cuts at other salons and redress any damage done. Armed with a team of experts in various disciplines, Chez Vous is more than well equipped to fix and repair sub-optimal results of hair services such as colouring, cutting, straightening, perming, bleaching etc. This program is an ongoing initiative, and free of charge if there is a lapse of less than one week between the treatment in question and the customer’s visit to Chez Vous; this is limited to 1 customer a day and only from Sundays to Thursdays.

Not just that, Chez Vous other unique initiatives will also include cheeky by-appointment only makeover parties coined “Mix, Mingle, Makeover” as well as our #ThursdayisthenewFriday programme once a month where there will be a surprise treat for all guests e.g. macaroon and wine butler service, waive of bills etc., ongoing campaigns and efforts to support emerging designers. As a show of their support, Chez Vous’ shopfront will regularly be transformed by Singapore’s design personalities on the rise.

Yun Nam Hair Care Review 3

Have completed my Yun Nam Hair Care sponsored treatment sessions!
Previous posts are here

Previously mentioned, I have hair thinning problem, especially around the crown area and hair parting line. The herbal hair treatment from the first few sessions had helped greatly in deep cleansing of my scalp and reducing excessive oil secretion, preventing hair thinning problems and also dandruff issues.
I’m glad that my scalp and hair have been well-maintained throughout these months with Yun Nam Hair Care. The thinning crown is no longer a problem, yay!

Just a recap of past photos that show the hair thinning crisis at the top of my head.

Recent photos of my hair.


I had a dance performance recently that required hairdo with lots of back-comb and hairspray and glitters.
In spite of that, my hair still managed to remain strong and healthy after the two days of “torture”.


Had an appointment with Yun Nam Hair Care immediately the day after the performances. My hair was still pretty volumnious, see no crown thinning issue at all! :) (Just abit dry on the ends T.T)


The dry ends was all great again after the herbal treatment session!
I had a change of consultant as the previous one left the outlet. The new consultant/therapist was very nice and attentive. She customised a herbal concoction after checking my hair/scalp condition personally and even “interviewed” me on how I feel about my hair condition these days before deciding on the treatment for me – I needed a deep cleansing treatment after all the performance hair styling of cos! :D And deep conditioning as well.

The herbal treatment was applied to my scalp after a thorough hair wash.


(And there I was, catching-up on my magazine reading while enjoying the treatment lol)

Immediate photo taken after the treatment. Gone were all the (stubborn) glitters and residual hair spray/gel on my scalp.
Also, the dry hair ends were revived and the whole texture was really smooooth!

Brought some muffins over since it was my last session that day.

Had bridesmaid duties the weekend after and my hair remained quite obedient throughout.
Again, check out the fuller crown!


All these would not be achieved without the help of Yun Nam Hair Care products that I used faithfully at home too.

My favourite product would be the Charcoal Essence Shampoo which works most suitably for my scalp condition so far. I have almost finished the entire huge bottle of it even though I’ve been using only a little of the shampoo each wash.
Forgot to buy another bottle during my last session at Yun Nam Hair Care T.T

I usually use only twice of how much I poured onto my palm in this pic.


If you’re in need of hair care treatments or facing some hair problems, please head down to Yun Nam Hair Care for consultation to save your tresses now!
There’s a free trial if you’re a first timer – more details here:

Below are the addresses of their various outlets.
