MY PLASTIC SURGERY JOURNEY PART 1

0 comments


Hi everyone! I’m going to share something interesting and personal with you guys today! I’m gonna tell you guys about my plastic surgery experience in Seoul! Yes! I did my very first rhinoplasty surgery in Seoul! I know must have a lot of questions about it. This post is all about my consultation day with ID Hospital and DocFinder Korea. 

But before I start, I would like to thanks Docfinder Korea. This Korea trip would not have happened without their help. As you know, there are so many medical agencies in Korea, but why did I choose Docfinder Korea? I have to say the main reason is because of Chenelle! 


To be honest, I don’t really trust the reviews on the internet. She did her plastic surgery last year at ID Hospital through DocFinder Korea. And she share with me her experience with Docfinder Korea and I saw her amazing results. So I told her that I wanted to do nose surgery, she told me that she want to go back ID Hospital again and she contacted Docfinder Korea and told them I’m coming along with her for surgery. And that’s how I got on this trip and I believe I made a right decision! 

Docfinder Korea is a medical tourism agency serve that provides medical services for patients by finding the best and suitable doctors and hospitals in Seoul. Do you know that just in Gangnam area there’s over 600 plastic surgery clinics. I know it sounds crazy and how am I ever going to find the best hospital? Docfinder Korea solved everything! From selecting the best hospital, arranging logistics, consultation and surgery! They was with me from the beginning until the end to make sure I get what I wanted, receive the right treatments and services, and also help me with the aftercare. Also, they gave me professional advice and explained a lot about surgery to me. They make sure I fully understand before I make any decision. I’ve gained a lot of knowledge about plastic surgery with the help of Docfinder team. Everything they did made me feel safe and comfortable throughout my entire trip.  


Some people asking me about why I wanted to get plastic surgery? Believe me, I never know I will decide to get plastic surgery too! As you know, I did my nose filler for years, and it made me look more profile and attractive. Of course I’m happy with the result and I thought I will go for fillers like forever! 


But one thing about filler, there are limitations. Of course injected filler will enhance you nose shape, but not the size of my nostrils. Only surgery can reduce it. Also, filler is not permanent. Typically last approximately 6-12 months. Honestly I’m tired of top up of filler when it started to wear off. 


Another thing is, if injected too much, it’ll make my nose look broad because when the filler melts, it melts to the side and my nose looked wider. I think these reasons is enough for me to took a plunge for plastic surgery. 


ID Hospital is one of the top famous plastic surgery hospital in Korea. I know about ID Hospital is because of the plastic surgery TV show “LET ME IN”. There are many successful cases from ID Hospital, as they are one of the top plastic surgery hospital in Korea. 


They have more than 30 medical specialists in hospital, and their are famous in V-Line Jaw Reduction Surgery. 


I love the cosy environment and friendly staff and it made me feel very relaxed! It doesn’t look like hospital at all!


Before my rhinoplasty consultation with my doctor, the first thing to do is a x-ray scan. After that I was ushered to the photo room to take my before and after photo. 


Before meeting my doctor, I have a pre consultation with ID consultant to discuss about my ideal nose shape and which area I want to do my fat graft surgery. Before that, I have no idea what fat graft means until the ID manager suggested that I need some fat on my forehead and cheeks. I have sunken forehead and my cheeks is starting to sag! So I decided to give a try! I wasn’t worried communicating with them at all because ID Hospital and Docfinder Korea will provide translator during the consultation. They can speak in English, Chinese, Japanese, Russian and many other languages. Sometime when I don't understand certain things, my Docfinderkorea manager, Anna, will take time to explain it to me to make sure I understand. 


I met with the rhinoplasty doctor. Dr. Chi Young Bang. He is one of the best and experienced doctor in ID Hospital. I told him about my concerns and what I want to do on my nose. Dr.Bang was being so patient in answering all my questions. He even drew the process in detail of what he’s going to do on my nose, so that I get a thorough understanding of the process. Dr.Bang suggested to have silicone implant to increase my bridge height, define my nose tip and also decrease the overall width of my nostril. I also told him about my sunken forehead and my under eyes area because they are starting to sag. He suggested me to transfer fats from my thigh to my forehead and cheeks so that my face will look more refreshing. Even though I’m a little skinny. There’s not much fats but he can still take fat from my thighs.

After the consultation session. ID Hospital arranged my operation for the next day and the translator briefed me about the do’s and don’ts before the operation. So that’s all for my consultation day! The next blog post, I’ll be showing you my rhinoplasty and fat graft surgery procedure. Don’t forget to check out my video here!

Thank God it's another good day here. I'm feeling ecstatic because we are going to work some projects with few huge fashion brands! Absolutely can't wait for it! 
Last few days I've been pretty sick and now that I am recovering, so I am trying to make sure my outfits are easy and comfortable, yet stylish too! In this post, I chose to wear this fabulous red distressed-dress from Ottolinger. Don't you just love the red color? I adore it. I think it looks gorgeous with these iconic black cowboy boots I got from Vetements the other day. What do you say?

HOW TO BUILD YOUR SELF-CONFIDENCE

Singapore

0 comments


Today I want to give you four easy tips to build your confidence, because when we believe in ourselves and we know that we can do things and we can archive things, we actually do. There are honestly so many other ways, and I'm only giving you four today, but there are so many other ways that we can work to build our self confidence. So, if any of you have tips that you'd like to share, let me know below! 

So, without further ado, the first tip is groom yourself and dress nicely. You'd be surprised how much better we feel about ourselves when we are showered, when we are wearing an outfit that we feel good in. I know this seems like specific to girls, but guys are the same. If you are clean shaven, you're wearing a nice outfit, and you're headed in somewhere, you will feel like, "I already to kick some ass." There's something about being dressed nicely, being clean and groomed that makes us feel so much better about ourselves, and that's something that is actually pretty easy to take care of. 

Secondly is act positive. Sometimes the quote that I use a lot is, "Fake it until you make it." Why? I means, if you want people to treat you nicely, you have to do the same thing to them. Be generous and be welcoming to people at the coffee shop or in elevator, say something like, "Good morning, have a good day." or "Let me get the door for you." Being friendly to people and acting in a positive manner can totally turn it around for us. I even had that experience in my life. There's a one day I got up late and I went to the restaurant and it's not like other day, they ran out of breads. I means I drove extra to come over here and getting breakfast from you, and now you can't make it. I could let myself feel really bad and being rude to the waitress, but instead I decided to act positively. I smiled to them and said, "Thank you so much. Have a nice day ahead." So, the waitress would not have the chance to say something to ruin your day. Remember, you can't make it, we can fake it. 

The third tip is get prepared. Let me tell you my problem. I always be nervous speaking in front of strangers or new friends, especially when speaking in English. I don't know what was I expecting but I was just so nervous and started feeling shy and my mind go blank, so I can't speak English clearly and confidently. And I know, most of the new friends are like audiences, they don't really encourage you. They just want to see the jokes on you and they won't worry about your next move. (I even received few mean comments from them, from my back.) You know what I mean? You don't want to go somewhere, like to a test or to an interview or to meet new people without feeling prepared for it. Because often times we almost set ourselves up to feel bad. Like we will go into an interview, and we will stress about it, and we won't even do anything to prepare for it. And then we sit there and they ask us questions, we don't know what to say. That just recapitulates that negative thinking, and so we keep thinking, "Yeah, see I am a dumb idiot." But you're not, we're not. We just weren't prepared. So whatever it is that you are going to do, even if you're going to a friend's house, you can actually prepare a couple of pairs of clothes that you feel good in. Like I said at first, dress nicely. You know there are things we can do to prepare ourselves for success. And the more prepare we do, the better we feel about ourselves. 

The last tip is setting small goals and archiving them. This doesn't means get an "A" in a test. That is not a small goal. Small goals are make each one of these things a habit. For example, this week I'm gonna dress nicely three days. That is small goal, because guess what? When we archive those small goals, we feel even better about ourselves. So each week try to encourage yourself to set small goals working towards the things that I just mentioned. And I promise, if we are working together, we will start feeling better about ourselves. And then, the world is our oyster. We can do whatever we want, and we are a force to be reckoned with.

THE LAW OF ATTRACTION CHANGED MY LIFE

0 comments


Last week's Monday was a better one. My assistant and I went for brunch, and discussing the latest plans and photoshoot for my blog. Since sometimes my thoughts get stuck due to working alone, I always like to share my ideas with friends and assistant. And there's nothing better to do so during an unofficial Monday brunch meeting. 




I wore something easy and casual, including my new Yang Li Jacket and my beloved dad cap from Balenciaga. 

After the brunch meeting, I was trying to write this post because I've been wanting to share this with you guys because I know most of you guys want to know more about the law of attraction and how the law of attraction changed my life. It's inspired me so much and I kept trying and practicing almost everyday of my life, and now I just want to write this post telling you guys about it, hopefully trying to show you how I apply it to my day-to-day life, and the most importantly how much it's helped me now. 

First of all, the law of attraction is not really a new thing to me, I probably heard about it like 4-5 years ago from The Oprah Winfrey Show. I always heard people talking about it and I kind of always just thought that it was about positive thinking and always seen the good in things and just trying to be positive when you are facing some adversities. The fact is, I don't really understand the depth of the law of attraction until I came across a book called, Advance Law of Attraction Techniques. I listened to the audiobook because I am an easily distracted reader, yet I just found it a lot easier to understand the concept while I listening to it because it quite a complicated topic to get my head around. The idea behind the law of attraction is quite simple - what do you think about comes about whether you want it or not. I know there's a lot of people tend to think about something that really really want it and it will come to your life and that's not really how it works. For an example, you want some cool friends and using the law of attraction. You ended up stressing about it and thinking about it in a negative way like, why I haven't see the improvement yet and so on. So the vibration you're putting out into the universe is quite opposite because you're constantly upset or being impatient about it. You are allowing these negative thoughts to affect your emotion, and that is the whole thing behind the law of attraction. Your thought must to bring out a happy emotion, a positive emotion. 

Behind the law of attraction, the idea is that your thoughts control everything in your life, and your thoughts create everything in your life. So whatever you are in today, that has been created through your thought and I am certainly agree with this. Let me be more specific with you. If you are thinking a certain thing and yet you are trying to force a smile and force to thinking in a positive way, all of that is completely washed away because your true thoughts are stressing about things, and that is what actually brought to you in real life. I know it is very hard to do it or practice it because you will find yourself often thinking about things from a place of lack more than a place of abundance and that is the hardest part in the law of attraction. You have to feel it as you already have it before you have it. If you want to be a wealthy person, you have to feel like you already have abundance of money. You have to be free with your money and be stressless. When you are spending money and thinking stuffs like what do you gonna do for your next bill or so stress about spending the money, that is not helping at all. I used to had the financial stress and always felt so tight with my money until I started to become way more relaxed with my money and money started to flow to me. I am not saying I have a huge amount of money but I can see the improvement. Most of you know how much I love fashion, especially those pricey designer pieces. But how I gonna have them all if I don't have enough of money? I used to afford only one or two pricey items in a year, and like most of the people I was spending it so stressfully. Until I started to applying the law of attraction, trying to practice and spend my money without the stress, guess what? You can see the improvement from my outfits, my blog and my Instagram, I am getting more and more designer pieces I love and I do have the ability to afford most of them. That's my real experience. I honestly believe that our thoughts are everything because there is no there sense behind the law of attraction. 

Easier said than done. I know this is sounds so hard to you guys. I am not trying to ask you to control your thoughts all the time, it will drive you crazy. My personal trick is to apply the law of attraction in my daily life is when I am feeling a certain way or I am feeling upset or depress, I will say to myself this is what I don't want, and now I want to focus what I do want, so I can at least feel slightly better. What I mean is every time when you feel something bad, you have the choice to feel slightly better. You don't have to force yourself to feel immediately happy about it because that is definitely a wrong way to do. If every time you constantly choose to feel slightly better when you are facing some adversities, the law of attraction will bring steady improvement to your experience. Having slightly better is better than feeling upset or frustrated about things in your life. Feeling hopefulness is better than depression. 

Another trick I love is making a scrapbook. Yes, you can make your dreams come true by making a scrapbook of your visions or goals. You are a visionary. There is nothing better than having your vision on paper with images, and the steps to get there, except having those visions come alive. I have plenty of scrapbooks and when I was looking back at them, it's surprised me because most of the dreams or goals I had been cut and pasted are came true. Like attending Paris Fashion Week or be a cover girl of authoritative fashion magazine. You see, if you are not just dreaming about how you want your life to progress but listing them is so much helpful. You can feel that you can definitely achieve these goals you have for your life.

I know what are you thinking but this is not a cliche. There are so many little things that we completely take for granted. If you are having a bad skin problem, you can actually be thankful other parts of your body like you have better sight or you have the ability to get out from your bed yourself. You can love yourself instead of complaint about it. Like me, I don't have supermodel-height but I do love my eye colors and I love my flat tummy and so on. Whenever you feel negative emotion you could say to yourself that you are actually in the process of attracting something you do not want. Even if you do not have what you want right this moment, you have to start feeling as you already have it. The main thing behind the law of attraction is what you think about, you will attract it whether you want it or not. So, trust me. You really don't have to rush this practice. Take your time, find the best way you can apply it to your daily life. I hope this post will help you to be more happier in your life. 






DUO GIGS FIRST COVER STORY

0 comments



Hello guys! Guess what happened. It was so amazing and surreal that it felt like a dream come true. It was such an incredible honor to be a part of the NUYOU Magazine cover issue. This post is specially dedicated to the NUYOU team. We feel really grateful to be invited to be the guest cover of their magazine. The honest, we are kind of guilty because we both are feeling a little bit shy to openly express our gratitude for the people, friends, family, love and experiences around us. In this post, we’re not just saying thank you to the NUYOU Team, especially the talented stylist WeeChee, but we would also love to personally thank our readers, especially the community that believe and has always been supporting us from the beginning. It took us a whole lot effort and time to build our business.

All things aside, lets get back to talking about our cover photoshoot. The shoot was extremely tough, probably the toughest shoot we ever had. It was a 12-hour shoot along with the team of NUYOU that includes the professional styling crew, makeup artist, hairstylist, photographer and assistants. There were some complications during the photoshoot such as problems with the lighting, dryness, sweltering weather and mosquito attack(haha). Depite the complications, we really enjoyed the experience. We learned that teamwork makes the dream work. Without co-operation real success is impossible.

So, how does it feel when your dream comes true? It was a sweet mix of pure happiness and self pride. And the best part is, when you share the story with everybody around you, it gives them the motivation to go ahead and pursue their dreams. Achieving one of your dreams is something important. Always remember that enthusiasm is key. Yes, enthusiasm is often neglected as a force, without enthusiasm, its hard to achieve your goals. The only thing that holds you back is the effort of taking action. You know what they say, actions speak louder that words.

Once again, we want to express our gratitude and aprreciation to everyone who participated in our blogging works and projects, and we hope that it would ultimately result in an even larger success due to any future potential collaborations.
