《宫锁心玉》

.

最近,刚看完《宫锁心玉》。原名《宫》,据介绍,《宫》是中国第一部清朝穿越
题材电视剧,它讲述了现代女孩洛晴川(杨幂饰),因意外穿越到清朝康熙年间,
入宫成为宫女,并与四阿哥,雍正(何晟铭饰)以及八阿哥(冯绍峰饰)相识,卷
入清代著名的九子夺嫡之争的故事。剧情涉及了爱情、友谊、阴谋等多重元素,相
当曲折。

主演:杨幂/冯绍峰/何晟铭/佟丽娅/汤镇业/郭羡妮/刘雪华。

香港也尝试过此类剧,比如《寻秦记》。相比之下,《宫》少了很多穿越时代的趣事,
勾心斗角的构思也不如。主角杨幂的演技也差强人意。还好杨幂长得甜美可爱,要
不然,老实说是看不下去的。但就何晟铭,冯绍峰和佟丽娅的感情戏而言,是十分
让人感动的。四阿哥,雍正,这个经典人物绝对是非常难诠释的角色。内敛,城府
深,有谋略, 野心, 和心机,雍正不如深情款款的八阿哥来的讨喜。但不知怎么,我的视线
就是离不开四阿哥。=P 他的眼神,好深情,也好忧郁。所以,一直悄悄希望四阿哥和
晴川能在一起。=)

剧长35集,我居然看完了! 很难的哟! 结局蛮好的。值得一看! 听说有Part 2。原班人马。

My Dearest QQ

Love the Dec weather, chilly and cooling. Although it’s still pretty warm in the daytime, the night was simply bliss with cool cool breeze coming through our windows. Sometimes it’s so strong that it can slap my windows shut with a loud thud or send my chandelier rocking back and forth. Thank god it doesnt happen that often. I do hate if my chandelier come crashing down.

It’s such a lovely night again. It’s such a waste to sleep it away…. Sometimes I really enjoy time to myself, doing my own things(manyyyy things at one time). Haha. And I’m especially alert at night, to my dismay. I enjoy more when my favorite activities are done at night.

*ahem* Please dont think YY.

I meant, hobbies like blogging….reading(oh yes I do read okieee~)…surfing…watching dramas, variety shows and concerts. Currently watching my darling Jam Hsiao’s newly bought concert DVD. Heez~

Wanna share our lovely purchase!!

猜猜是什么? Hee!


Everything when I received parcels, I always got soooOoo excited but this time round, my excitement was x 100 times because it’s the first time I ordered something(alone) which costs a 3 digit figure online. And I’m super worried that it disappoints me.

My CleanMate QQ-2L, Robot Vacuum Cleaner

I shall refer it to my dearest QQ from now on. =D

Robot vacuum cleaners had been around for quite some time and I’m sure many people will love one at home but merely hesitated at the price, for authentic i-robots Roomba usually costs a 4 digit. Freaking expensive! Another downside is, they cant clean corners well.

I was initially very doubtful of it’s capability when I first heard it from Gra, whose colleague had bought it off online at only US$208. Though the one she bought was an imitation where the set was made in China, and computer chip in Germany. I wasnt enthu because I’m sure it cant clean very well, especially along walls and corners. And manz, how many dozens of corners we have in our house? However, Gra said perhaps I can use it on a daily basis to keep the house reasonably clean while I can have a 大扫除 every week or so. Suddenly the idea seemed so attractive. Because Vickki is indeed a pest who always make the house dirty.

I wasnt disappointed. It was indeed well worth every penny! How I love the free shipping too! Think of it, it’s like only 50 bucks more than our normal Philips vacuum cleaner!

My Review:
It cleans reasonably well, much better than expected. You definitely cant expect 100% because some corners will definitely be left out. However, I’m quite surprised it cleans pretty well along walls using the along-the-wall mode. Perhaps because of the little brush located near the right edge of the set. At first glance, only the S-shape mode and along-the-walls mode seemed useful but that is only true for square rooms and preferable almost no or very few furnitures. For big areas with furnitures, it’s good to take it’s auto mode(combination of all 5 modes) to clean more efficiently. I know it can look a tad irritating when it doesnt go the way you prefer all the time or it merely clean 1 small area and hop off to another. But give QQ her freedom, she will eventually finish cleaning up the whole area. =)
:
:
To save some time and battery, you can always use the remote to manually control it by making it turn left/right/forward/reverse to clean missed out areas which wasnt focused yet but do note it only cleans when it’s moving forward. And every touch of left/right button, it turns a fixed degree of angle. For manual mode, it stops whenever it meets an obstacle, while during auto mode, it will switch directions itself. So usually if I really want to clean neglected areas immediately, I will use manual mode but followed by auto mode.
:
:
QQ did have a downside, which is I feel she cant recognise her “home”(charging bay) very well. She must be relatively near, like within 30cm or so before she knows how to go “home”. Lol. If not, she will use “along-the-wall” mode all the way until she finds her “home” since her “home” is definitely along the walls. Hahaha! Kinda waste time and batt. So either I will carry her back to near her “home” or “manually” direct her back. Therefore, I’m very doubtful of the mentioned function; 

  • Automatically returns to charging base when low on power
  • Resumes cleaning after battery is fully charged

Hmmm…………………………………………………………..她不会回家!!!

Anyway, supervision is definitely required or preferred. It got stucked at the edges of my coffee table and tv console(due to their design) and must be manually pulled out. Sometimes it get stucked in corners too, unable to turn out. There is the timer feature but haven tried it out. Dont think it’s necessary. I have to say the remote works pretty well. So long so you’re pointing at the signal panel located infront of QQ(it’s not difficult since QQ is always moving and rotating), the distance dont matter. I’ve used it from as far as 5-6metres and QQ still can detect.

Luckily for our small home of 100sq m, it’s just nice for the battery life. For bigger homes, you might need to charge it again before resuming cleaning. By the way, I’m very thankful for the elaborate instruction manual in ENGLISH, in good English. And the set arrived with battery and filter installed. Even the remote comes with battery installed. It feels great!

All in all, I’m pleased with it. Last time I got so exhausted with both vacuuming and mopping right after one another. The day before, I used QQ to vacuum the floor and it was really pretty clean. So I merely use a wet mop(除尘纸拖把-wet) to mop some dirty areas plus all the corners and along the walls. Took me less than 10minutes. =D The floor was very clean.

I definitely can look forward to more personal time!

Feel free to ask me for more questions. =)

 

 

My ANGEL & DEVIL List 2010

Just read Jen’s Naughty & Nice List 2010 and thought it will be nice to come up with one too! Okie, I’ll call it My Angel and Devil List. Haha! Oh man, isnt she gorgeous? I bet she made all the guys go aga aga over her in Korea. =)  Super love her make-up tutorials, very clear. Not only is she so natural and confident infront of the camera(other than sexy, gorgeous!), speaks good English with a nice slang, she also has good English on her blog, writes well, opinionated and doesnt swear in like every 3 sentences or so. Ha~

But hor, I think back, I really cant recall any DEVIL items at all. Because mainly I’ve stopped using them and kicked them out of my mind. Hmm….maybe I can try to re-call a few.

:

:

MY DEVIL LIST 2010

1) SK II Pitera Series

How can I forget this? Together with it’s Cellumination Essence and toner which costs me a FEW hundred bucks but yet did nothing except giving rashes on my face and neck. Real itchy too! They might do wonders to you, but they didnt to me, except in a real bad way. =(

:

:

2) Bourjois Volume Glamour Ultra Care Mascara

Although it’s a volumizing mascara, actually it did nothing of the sort while I was testing it. But why did I buy? Because it’s not thick, does not clump lashes but defines them neatly and comes with treatment properties. However, they smudges very easily and everytime I reached home a panda. Okie maybe it’s not waterproof but still!!! I have non water-proof mascaras which do better!

:

:

3) Kanebo T’estimo Eye palette

Okie this picture is not mine. And my colours are more of bronze and gold. I know their packaging is cool, colours are gorgeous but you must not buy. Because they’re not lasting at all! Not only that, they smudges to a very ugly and oily residue which is almost impossible to revive even with touch-ups.

:

:

4) Bourjois baked blusher

It has to do with the applicator or something. For their baked eye shimmer was good when applied wet with it’s applicator, but for the brush applicator attached with this blusher was totally helpless in picking up the pigments off the hard, baked ROCK  for application. Thus impossible for colours to show.

:

:

5) Olay Body wash plus body butter

This has got to be the worst body wash I have tried. How bad can it be? It left my body sticky! No matter how much water I used to rinse off, I’m still sticky! I had to use another body wash to get rid of the sticky residue on my skin. Duhz! I cant even use it to clean the toilet because it leaves the floor sticky and greasy. =.=””’

:

:

:

MY ANGEL LIST 2010

Oh no, I have a problem. I have MORE than 5 items for MY ANGEL LIST because I remember nice things so much better than bad things!! Heck! I’ll just share them! =)

My FACE profile: Super Sensitive & Combi Aging Skin with oily T-zone

My BODY profile: Very dry + Aging

My Style: Lazy but  Kia-su + Kia-si

:

:

1) GreenLife Melatonin Lozenge

Seriously, this is my life saver! I popped them almost every night without fail although I try not to. What they do? They help you to sleep, in a more natural and healthier way because they’re supplements. Throw away your sleeping pills! As the name Lozenge suggests, you’re supposed to suck them like a sweet and dont worry, they’re nice. =) It’s a realllll small sweet too and around 1 hour or lesser, you’ll start to yawn! Of course, if you insists not to sleep despite the sleepy feeling, then you wont sleep because the mind is more powerful than anything! No side effects for me at all.

Available at Guardian at less than S$15.

:

:

2) Deary Rose Co-Q10 Brightening Hand & Foot Therapy

 

Haha I mentioned this before in this post. Like I said, it has a great rose smell, has brightening and Co-Q10 anti-aging properties. Most importantly, doesnt leave a sticky residue behind and moisturizes well. Cute and dainty packaging, convenient for travel too.

Available at Raffles City Robinson for less than S$10

:

:

3) Nivea Visage Sparkling White UV Blocker SPF 30++

As you well know, sunblock is vital for our skin no matter whether you do make-up or not. I’m a sucker for water-based skin-care/cosmetics because they’re so comfy(cooling!) on the skin and not as oily. Whitening/Hydration/Protection – all my G spots. Lol.

Available at Watson for around S$20

:

:

4) Biore UV Perfect face milk SPF50+ Pa+++

This white bottle among the whole series is specially for oily skin because other than giving sun protection, it also has high oil control properties. Thus making makeup lasting.

Available at Watson for less than S$20

:

:

5) Beauty Credit Lovely Q10 Sun Pact(Pressed powder)

SPF50+/Pa+++ – 21 Nude Beige

This has gotta be the best pressed powder I had ever used(after Shu Uemura). It’s very fine and gentle to the skin but yet miraculously has good coverage(not super, but sufficient), looks extremely natural, pretty lasting with a good base. A little goes a long way. It’s best quality ought to be it oxidize very slowly, and even when it does, it doesnt change colour, e.g, to grey. Touch-ups are great, wont be cakey. Oh I just realised it has Q10 and SPF properties too. Lol. You can recognise it by it’s pure white case, should be the only 1.

Usually I’ll wear 3) Nivea Visage UV blocker and then apply 4) Biore face-milk esp. on T-zone before slapping this on. =) Oh I wore this in the picture in the entry below this.

Around S$50+ either before or after 20% discount. =P Cant remember as I always buy it during BC’s member’s event.

(P/S While searching for the above picture, came across a site which sells only at S$22.40! Hmm But dont know safe or not~)

:

:

6) Urban Decay’s Ammo Eye palette

Love the packaging which comes in a magnetic case with purple spiral flowers and velvet details. This is one great palette I love because amazingly, I love ALL 10 colours in it. Colours are pretty lasting with it’s primer potion.

Got it at their website during a 30% sale at only S$30+, with a full size of primer potion! Almost the best deal. =)

:

:

7) Toni & Guy Frizz Smoothing Curl Shampoo

Although it states for “smooth curls & waves”, I think it’s okay for straight hair too. It makes the hair very soft and smooth and is great even for oily scalps like mine. It’s hard to find a shampoo for everyday use, moisturizing for hair but yet not too rich for oily scalp. I’m sticking to it for as long as I live.

Available at Watson for S$16+

:

:

8) Aqua Sense, Medlar Anti dark eye circles eye mask

I only use these for my eyes. No eye creams as they’re either too mild or rich which give me millia seeds. They’re great at healing dark eye circles. Ya friends always ask, “you have meh?” Yesssss I have, but very light whenever I dont have enough sleep. Believe it or not, everytime after I use, the dark eye rings disappear! But not enough sleep will come out again, then I will use again. ^_^

Available at Watson, box of 12 at around S$15 maybe.

:

:

9) St Ives Vitamin E moisturizing body wash

Specially for dry(cum aging skin) like mine. Leaves skin soft, supple and smelling nice!

Available at Watson at less than S$10

:

:

10) Beauty Credit Co-enzyme Q10 body cleanser

Specially for dry(cum aging skin) like mine. Leaves skin very soft and fantastically smooth until you cant stop touching yourself! I love Q10 anytime, anywhere. =P

I remember I bought it at around S$50+ but it’s a big bottle.

:

:

11)  Shu Uemura Eyes & Cheeks make-up palette

Very convenient as a touch-up palette because eye-shadows, liners and blusher all there. Nice, sweet and sexy colours too. Limited edition so they’re only…

Available in SQ flights Kris Shop at around S$75

:

:

12) Nature’s Green Sheep Placenta

I actually didnt really discover it’s magic until 1 day I realized I didnt use concealer for quite some time(which is like 2 weeks after consuming). It was then I noticed my pigmentation marks were all gone! Usually when I’m busy and stopped my beauty regime for days, undoubtedly they will show on my haggard face. With these, I do the minimal but skin stays the same. =P Told ya I’m lazy but yet kia-su. Now I eat them everyday. However, pore size still quite the same. =(

They come in capsule form(like those antibiotics), very easy to swallow. No side effects for me(2nd bottle already).

Available at S$38+ at Watson.

:

:

13) Deary Masks


The best masks I’ve used. So soft and thin, totally adhered to the face like 2nd piece of skin. It was so thin that it can easily tear so do be careful. I love all their masks. If you care for whitening then go for the blue box. Some other ranges including firming your double chin with an extra flip for the neck.

Available at Raffles City Robinson at perhaps S$16 for a box of 7 I think

:

:

14) Cleansing Express Cleansing Lotion

 

This is a water-based 1 step make-up remover, including toning and moisturizing. You just pump them onto cotton wool and just wiped your makeup off. It’s great when you’re super tired and just wanna sleep immediately after makeup removal! They come in varieties suitable for different skin types; Oily/Dry/Dull/Aging. The one I’ve tried is “SEBUM” for oily skin and it works great. I’m generous while using it. I pump like 2 pumps on 1 cotton wool and I can use like 3 cotton wools to finish to whole face to ensure it’s absolutely clean. No breakouts too. Haven used them to remove fake eyelashes before though. Much better than Biore’s cleansing wipes because they give me breakouts, perhaps not clean enough.

Less than S$20 from Watson

:

:

15) Bioré Cleansing Oil(blue bottle)

I use Biore’s blue bottle cleansing oil if I had on full makeup, fake eyelashes etc though. It’s great, though I will still follow up with a gentle cleanser.

Available at Watson for around $22

 

Conclusion: Expensive things might not be better than cheap stuff. Neither is it the opposite. Most importantly, they must be able to suit your skin.

And,

I LOVE WATSON!

That’s about it! Haha Cya Folks!

Have a Merry & AWESOME Christmas!!

Lunch at Mouth Restaurant(地茂馆)

Lunch was super, duper delicious at Mouth Restaurant(地茂馆). Not sure what is the building name but it was next to Hong Lim Building(Chinatown). If you know where is the overhead bridge, from there, you can see the restaurant at ground level. Enjoyed the sumptuous, heavy lunch with my dear colleagues. =)

椒盐豆腐

Fluffy and cripsy, skin was lightly salted. Nice!

Pork Ribs with apple sauce

Meat was very tender and the sauce was fantastic, wasnt too sweet at all.

姜葱鱼片

Fresh and succulent. Yummy.

Cereal Prawns

My bad for this lousy angle but this dish was really nice! Very fragrant. Although amount of cereal was kinda stingy, the taste did not compromise.

Broccoli with crabmeat

Generous amount of crabmeat! As usual, I prefer my broccoli a little softer. But realised usually people cooked it this way, slightly crunchy. Oh well. Taste was good though.


Fried HarKaw(prawn dumpling)


Weird. I thought we ordered the steamed one.

Fried Prawn roll

Interesting presentation but taste so-so.

We, or rather I, was very famished so pictures were taken hurriedly. We also had different dimsum like fried carrot cake, crabmeat 小笼包, prawn siewmai but missed taking their pictures. I only tried the 2 above in the pictures and fried carrot cake and they’re pretty normal, not awesome. However, the ala carte dishes are wonderful. =) Total bill for 6 of us came up to around $128 after OCBC 10% discount. We ate to our hearts’ fill, pretty worth it in my opinion. Service is prompt and good too.

Definitely will patronize them again. =D

Beauty Reviews

Lose a 5 bucks in Mahjiong again. Sometimes feel I really dont have much luck in gambling. Seldom get to win. Humph.

Shall blog a short post about beauty reviews while waiting for my Pipi player to load.

Reviews!!

Product: Bio-essence Tanaka White Ultimate Whitening & All spots Fading cream.

tanaka

Reviews: It really does wonders! Initially I was having doubts because I never have tried 1 which works! But somehow, I gave it a try since it costs only 30ish. Amazingly, after 3 applications, my pimple marks has significantly lightened a lot! Although they haven disappear yet, I will continue to use it. I was hesitant to try Bio-essence products because I was sensitive to their face firming cream before, the older version(before the Pollen was added). I developed rashes, however, it is a superb firming cream, hence I use it for my neck. For the mentioned fading cream, I was lucky it didnt cause any sensitive reactions. =)

 

Product: Beauty Credit, Lovely Green tea BB cream

Reviews: I dont know if it’s my wrong impression but I thought my skin improved when I subsequently uses it under my makeup. Before that I was using 2-way cake which was rumored to clog pores. After few weeks of use, not only did it excel as a makeup base, it does makes my pores slightlyyy smaller.

 

Product: KOSE Supreme Refining Lotion I (toner)

supreme

Reviews: I have to say I’m a sucker for whitening products because I was born so tan. I think I can never forget those products which whitens me significantly though one can get pretty immune to it after long period of using it. Hence I always change after some time. Exactly in chronological order, my saviors are

1) Olay(previously known as Oil of Ulan)
2) KOSE Sekkisei Lotion(toner) (classic dark blue bottle)
3) THE FACE SHOP Su Hyang Snow series
4) KOSE Sekkisei Supreme

Yeah so I’m back to KOSE again, using SUPREME which was said to contain 3X whitening effects than the classic blue bottle. There are series I and series II and II are more for matured(dry) skin. Other than it’s heavy alcohol smell and high alcohol content, it indeed whitens effectively. Though be careful of continuous usage because my skin became pretty dehydrated after I used 1) for a long time although it does whitens.

The old me(around 10years old? Dont remember)

darkme

The now me(some time back lah, random pic in com)

bg2
Wearing the mentioned Green Tea BB cream with loose powder.

I dont feel I’m very fair now lah, especially after I went swimming a few times and Wild Wild Wet too, as I tans easily. =( But it’s already a far cry from how I’m used to be. So who says you cant whiten naturally with strictly no whitening jabs or whatever. Oh ya. Nivea Visage. It’s great in whitening too.

Reviews of 《衝上雲霄》

Finished 雙食記 not long. It’s a movie starred by Franics Ng. Small budget film directed by a China director but it’s definately worth watching with it’s unique plot, exquisite presentation and superb acting by the the stars. I shant spoil the surprise by talking about the story, so go watch it! You can watch it on PIPI player.

I’m still 10 episodes away from finishing 《衝上雲霄》 but the exhilarating feeling has gradually died down ever since the 3rd or 4th episode(I think) where Flora Chan chose to accept Joe Ma’s proposal even though she was secretly lemming for Franics Ng. Their encounter seemed so enchanting and romantic that it’s close to most Korean dramas are all about. Got me thinking back about all my “more-than-normal” encounters.

I certainly recalled a few. Nice settings. Nice faces. Nice smiles. But those encounters were only THAT romantic and enchanting at THAT very moment. After which, it’s nightmare, in each and every “unique” different way. Common, stop fantasizing about all these fairytales and “hero saved the beauty encounters”. It’s like only 10% or less will really turn out “happily ever after”. Isnt Princess Diana and Prince Charles the best living(or dead) example? Sometimes, some things really arent as beautiful as it looks/seems on the outside. Grass always look greener on the other patch. Fantasize once in a bluemoon is good to keep your young heart burning, but really dont go crashing into the flame like the silly moth. It’s simply not worth it.

Coming back to topic, I vastly preferred my idol Ada Choi to star as Flora in the show. I think she can definitely act better than Flora who sounds like she’s constipated in the entire show during crying scenes. Francis’s, Myolie’s and Ron’s performances were good in the show. The others were really bland and I’m surprised. Usually they do much better.

Myolie’s role is darn irritating. Like a child who has never grown up. Chirp, helpful, bubbly, yeah great. But from the start, she has formed a bad impression to me because she didnt return the doll to Francis. Should I say selfish or greedy? Despite she tried to remedy later, it’s already too late.

Flora. She shouldnt accept the proposal when she’s still in love with Francis. That is SO wrong. Even if the misunderstanding cleared few hours after the nuptials, I feel she should dissolve the marriage because clearly, if she’s such a die-hard fan of this thing call fate or whatever, she should stick with it and go with Francis rather than spending half her life thinking about “what if”. Now, isnt it stupid to try so hard, trying to force something into existence for years and months only to go back to square one? The difference is the hurt she caused will be times 10. In chinese we call it, 长痛不如短痛 and 害人害己.

Franics dont even treat Myolie like a proper girlfriend. As block-headed and boring he might be, a normal boyfriend just dont behave like that. He makes everything look like a duty to a little sister. If she’s slightly more sensitive, she should have sensed something is missing. And Myolie, I really applaud her that she can take all the crap from Francis. Again, it might be because she’s simply a doormat, too accommodating and a pushover. Her favourite line is, “我没事,我真的没事.” ZzZz. She’s tried too hard to please. There’s a difference between being understanding and being afraid to see the truth. Actually, the way they got together was already very exaggerating and ridiculous to me. I was like, what the?

If the food is not to your liking, dont stuff yourself with it just becuase it’s free. And even if the food is to your liking, if it’s going to cause you food-poisoning, then for god’s sake, dont eat it!

Happy

Had finished watching 絕代商驕. Unlike other standard hongkong tvb shows which focus on family ties and love , this show actually ventured a little into the techniques of doing businesses. It’s a comedy but I find it so-so only because only Dayo is funny. Charmaine’s acting failed badly and did not help much in creating laughter. I’m kinda disappointed actually. I expected better performance from her. Ultimately, she’s like the old bird in TVB already. HAHAHA. On the contrary, Ada performed so much better with Dayo on 栋笃神探. Perhaps they got more chemistry acting together. Dayo and Charmaine simply cant click.

Overall it’s still a nice show, with Dayo being the comedian and the fact that there are always surprises within the show, as in you dont know what is next. Perhaps some business tycoon will know about such business strategies lah but not me. Though somehow, I’m still skeptical about some of the strategies used.

I’m still midway into 古靈精探B and I’m very disappointed because it’s kinda boring when everything is so predictable. Plus it’s not very funny leh…or is my sense of humor diminishing? =.= And I’m so sick of the plot because everytime I can guess what’s going to come next or who’s the murderer in the very beginning. That’s so anti-climax. Like the movie “Blood Ties” which is showing now…dont watch….everything is so predictable and the scenes kept repeating. It’s not even a horror or thriller at all! I must curb myself from jeering to dearie what will happen next in the theaters. It’s irritating but I cant help myself! It’s like…”sian…Zeng Jiang is the baddie and later so-and-so will so-and-so..”

Actually I find the Hongkong actors/actresses really good in acting. As in, if they are the baddie who needs to act like a good guy, you can know instinctively. But of course my clueless and unobservant hubby will never sense. =P

The Singaporeans acted like shit in “Blood Ties”. Like the girl. I dont understand why is she looking so petrified in the whole show. You’re a ghost leh and you’re seeking revenge. And she dont even look evil nor revengeful. Haiz…perhaps I just cant compare the 12year old girl in “Orphan” with the local production. The guy’s acting sucks too. *shake head* At least the wife manage some tears during the rape scene, looked pretty real.

I think dearie must be damn sian to watch movie with me because I always let him anti-climax by spluttering what is going to happen. Argh I promise I’ll try to curb..but meanwhile…more good movies/serials please. Even HongKong TVB drama has been becoming more and more predictable. The last thrilling show I’ve watched is 巾国枭雄. Great.

Finally had my casement aircon installed. At last I can sleep. =)

The brand is “Trends”, made locally. Bought from Jurong Point NTUC fairprice at a very fair price of $549. Includes free installation, delivery etc and comes with 5years warranty. It has higher BTU at 9000 than Sanyo and Carrier, which are around 5000-7000 only. It also has a cheaper price tag, Carrier and Sanyo costs $600-$700.

I was prepared for it’s louder-than-normal-aircon noise but I find it okay leh. Though the salesman assured it’s softer than Carrier and Sanyo already. He did warned me that it wont be super cold as my room is much bigger than the normal common room but it will suffice. I just want the heaty air and humidity to get out of the way. Yeah It’s cooling but I did not adjust it till very cold, merely 20degrees and mid fan speed. Too cold I might have difficulty breathing again…my stupid asthma.

Very happy with my purchase. We will shift it when we got our new house so at least it wont be wasted after a few months’ use. =D
