hair date!

dated SK out to do our hair together!
spent quite a hefty amount to cut/color/treat my hair :/ but hopefully once my hair grows out it'll look way better than previously :D

contrast shoulder back-tie singlet, from TVD
studded bandage skirt, from BonitoChico
and studded sling bag from Liebe-lou,
(ok i didnt bring it out in the end because i was too lazy to transfer everything from the bag i was using -.-)

haven't worn this bandage skirt in ages! i do like the studs alot though!

cute owley necklace i got from the flea event previously :D

lift shot with SK! wth, we only met up then realised that we were wearing the same shoes and matching owl necklaces!
hahahaha got 默契!

headed to a restaurant on the top level of ILUMA as recommended by SK,
Chef Daniel's Kitchen,
Chef Daniel is apparently a very famous and renown chef!

that's Chef Daniel i think.

cosy interior, it was very quiet because we went there at close to 3pm. it definitely looks like a very scenic spot to dine at night cos it's located on the sky terrace of ILUMA.

they serve very affordable lunch sets, a Gourmet Set Lunch and Executive Set Lunch at only $10.50 and 19.50 respectively,
both come with soup and dessert too! slurps.

we went for the Executive Set Lunch in the end and ordered a steak and a sausage/crabmeat burger/grilled chicken set!

mushroom soup was very flavourful, but could be a tad creamier for uber shiokness. but stillll it was guuud. accompanied with bread too :)

here's my 200gm sirloin steak, i had it medium done and it was superb, very well marinated, very tender, no hard chewy tendons and extremely delectable :) accompanied with grilled vegetables and roast potatoes!

a very generous portion too, i love steak :DDDD

SK's! sausage with grilled chicken and a crabmeat/seafood patty. very yummy too! we shared both dishes and ate alot TTM. hahaha

dessert: strawberry mousse cake!
sinful but the mousse was light and easy on the palate :) so we ate it all up! :X

the portions were really generous for the price, would definitely return for the steak! yumyum. i think it's really hard to find good and affordable steak in singapore. would love to try the other dishes too!

the bag holder Gina bought frm HK,
pretty handy to keep around. Daiso sells similar ones for $2 i think!

havent really taken any pictures of my new bag, so here it is!
love the leather and shape :) it's very versatile too and goes with most outfits.

our matchy necklaces and shoes. LOL

since we're still salon-hopping around, SK & I decided to go for Essensuals,
stepped right in and fortunately they had available hair stylists for us, despite our not booking an appointment.

buttt, "lucky" me, the only hair stylist available was also the director, Bryan,
meaning i had to pay the additional director's surcharge >.<
but decided to just go for it!

ended up doing a cut/color/treatment under Bryan's advice, he had to snip off alot of my hair because my previous haircuts left my hair extremely layered at the bottom and all the ends were sticking out in a very ugly manner, despite my natural crop of hair being very thick, it looks rather dismal and thin at the ends, and tends to look very unkempt and unhealthy.
after the first snips of hair. the bottom of my hair looks heavier now and not as sorry looking.

SK went for a cut/treatment, and she decided to cut bangs!
i obviously didnt cut bangs in the end. lol. after everyone told me not to :(

tried to punk people that i was bleaching my hair blond by posting a picture on Twitter of me with my hair in the process of applying hair dye HAHA because the hair dye was a light yellow and made me look like i had blond hair!!! only a few people believed me though :X

and i think i might be able to pull off the bald look. i look quite decent with all my hair slicked back leh! at least i can visualise how i'd look if ever all my hair fell off.
pardon the huge forehead..

you can see the color setting into my hair already, i dyed it a dark chestnut brown :)

and here's SK after her hair cut and blow dry,
she looks damn 美少女with her bangs!! hahaha. niceeee.

and i dont really have picture of my hair, but it's just shorter with less layered ends,
and it's a dark brown now! :)

maybe i'll put up pictures tomorrow or something. still waiting for the ends to grow out though because Bryan mentioned that the bottom of my hair (due to the last rebonding job i did a few years ago) still needs to be grown out and trimmed away for my hair to fall in place nicely. hopefully it'll grow out fast because my hair is mad slow when it comes to growing out :( it took me 3 years to grow out my bob previously, which is also why i've never dared to cut short hair since :( i know i'll regret it.

i think i'll be going back again to Essensuals in a few months time once my hair has grown out a bit and requires a new trim! :D :D :D
i really liked how Bryan gave such a detailed analysis of my hair issues and how to solve them. makes me feel like i'm leaving my hair in very competent hands.
