Luxe Women – Deluxe Not Just for Women

My body was sore from all the Physical Abuse I received from my personal training. It was god-sent when I was invited to Luxe Women’s Blogger Party. After all my body could do with some tender-loving care and pampering being offered by the award-winning nail-trending salon.

In this present age, manicure and pedicure are no longer the exclusive right of women. More men are jumping into this business of personal grooming to get professional assistance in taking care of their nails. But if you’re an Alpha male and nails treatment is not your kind of pampering, fear not, because Luxe Women’s new outlet at Sembawang offers integrated services for both men and women to enjoy.

Conveniently located at Sembawang MRT, this shop within shop inside Station33 is an one-stop service centre that combines spa, nail care, eye brown services, waxing (for women only), hair styling and massage all in one unisex salon. It is an ideal place for couple living in the north to spend half a day pampering their body and soul together.

Last week, together with male bloggers, Damien and Don, we had the chance to experience i-SPA – soaking our feet in the 7 colour LED Jacuzzi Foot Bath Therapy while our body relax to the tune of the massage chair. The treatment was completed with Aroma-scrub and Mask with comfort and relaxation of a tablet with a range of movies to keep us entertain while the therapist worked on removing dead skin from our feet.

After a quality feet treatment, we were ushered to ZuYue Foot Reflexology where our feet were kneaded by trained therapists who ensured that the pressure on our feet were just right. There is also a tablet attached to every chair and I was watching Captain America while getting the reflexology done. The session was completed with a head and shoulder massage for a holistic relaxation experience.

For a limited period only, ZuYue Foot Reflexology is offering 60-minute foot massage at $25nett. Normal rate for foot massage is $28 for 40 minutes and body massage is $28 for 30 minutes.

Singapore Blog Awards mark MalcolmSunny.com 1st Year Anniversary

Last year, under the encouragement of a friend, Darren Ng I registered my previous blog malxc.livejournal.com for the Singapore Blog Awards. Needless to say, I didn’t even manage to get shortlisted as a finalist for any category.  Unsatisfied with just ranting about personal issues I faced, I started MalcolmSunny.com to scribble my happy thoughts.

A year on, blogging has certainly opened up a lot of opportunities for me. To begin with I got to know many friends. I remembered meeting Christina and Jeremy during last year’s Singapore Twitter Frenzy at Wave House, Sentosa which shaped my thinking of blogging. Previously I had always viewed my blog as a personal online journal for me to share my feelings with friends.

My interest in lifestyle blogging started while I doing marketing for Singapore Flyer and studying part-time at SIM University. Initially started out as a channel for me to hone my writing skills, blogging has become an integrated part of my life and a passion now. It has opened up more opportunities for networking, invitations to exclusive product launches and previews as well as trips overseas.

Thanks to Omy.sg, I was given the opportunity to experience Brunei and it was during that trip that I got to know Karen, Andy, Tiffany and Deenise. Besides catching up like Bruneian bloggers, we also exchanged tips on blogging and social media.

I’m very proud of my travel mates. In fact, all four of them were the finalists for this year’s Singapore Blog Awards. Karen and Deenise were also nominated for several categories.

Held at Shanghai Dolly, I spotted familiar faces and friends like Smith Leong, William Tan, Elrica, Mint Leong, Regina Chow, Joey Ong, Darren Sim, Hong Peng and Tse Lyn who were the finalists for the main and special categories for this year’s Singapore Blog Awards. Blogger friends like Joyce, Valentine, Colin and Damien were there to cheer them on too. Luke and Shirley were also the finalists but I didn’t manage to spot them.

The Ex-Factor is ‘live’ NOW!

Can you handle the new Power 98 EXperience? Starting today, every weekday from 5pm to 8pm, tune in to Power 98 for The Ex-Factor. Listen as ex-lovers DJ Mister Young and Jacqui T.  host the evening drive time show, and expect lots of sarcasm, bitch slaps on air juxtapose with pockets of charming moments and lots of laughter in this first of this kind radio show in Singapore. 

IMG_9715 IMG_9718

Radio has always been an integrated part of my life since the high school days. So imagine my excitement and glee when I received the invitation for a backstage tour of Power 98 studio and a chance to meet the voices behind one of my favorite radio stations, that spins music from the 90s and latest hits.

The Ex-Factor is the first radio show of it’s kind in Singapore. Honestly, the programme director must have gone nuts to put two ex-es together on the evening show. Oh wait, the programme director may have been one of the ex-es, Mister Young himself!

Mister Young (the weirdo who uses this pseudonym) is the Power 98’s Assistant Programme Director and on-air talent will be hosting the new evening prime time with his former lover, Jacqui T. Once romantically involved, they will now be hosting a juicy, no-holds-barred show set to rock the airwaves of our island.

DSC03036

That afternoon, we had an “intimate time” with the DJs, starting off with a game of ‘guessing your partner’s correct answer’. Each blogger got a chance to ask the DJ a question about his/her partner and he/she has to guess the correct answer from the partner. Eventually it was a tie between the two ex-es, and we proceed to the recording room to create our own sound clips.

DSC03039

Jacqui has been in the entertainment industry since 2006. Started out with a one-week stint on radio as Ms Personality from The New Paper New Face Contest, and moved on to host 987FM’s flagship show ‘Say It With Music’.

DSC03044

Mister Young is a veteran on-air talent with 11 years of experience entertaining folks through radio shows. He currently wears two hats at Power 98, one as a DJ and the other as the Assistant Programme Director.

IMG_9685 IMG_9694DSC03062

“It’s must hear radio as the chemistry is definitely there but so is the drama! I think it’ll be interesting because we can’t bullsh*t with each other. It will be us at our most raw and unfiltered,” quips Mister Young. “This is definitely a show where sparks will fly!’

IMG_9719

It was certainly a fun-filled afternoon with the two DJs and blogger pals Damien Wong (Uncle Teh Peng), Gin Wong, Kenny Tang, Andrea Chong and Jemimah (from That F Word) and Benita from Time Out magazine.

The Ex-Factor premieres on 10 June 2013, weekdays 5-8pm only on Power 98FM. Live streaming available at www.power98.com.sg
