I remember the very first time I saw an aesthetic/skin doctor. This clinic was very very highly raved by my Indon friends (apparently all the rich Indon taitais came to this clinic!) and this clinic was.. DrX.
That was about four years ago! 😨 And by strange serendipity, I've now come to IDS Clinic, opened by Dr SK Tan, that very first aesthetics doctor that I went to.
Dr SK Tan is so renown and established in the field of aesthetics that he's known as the "Ah gong of aesthetics"!
The first time I had my consultation with Dr SK Tan, I totally didn't know what to expect! But I stepped into his consultation room and the first thing Dr SK Tan said to me was,
So, what's wrong with your face?
(I then started going on and on about my clogged pores, freckles, skin dullness, dark eye rings… Etc etc..)
After which Dr Tan basically just laughed at me and said there was nothing wrong with my face and prescribed me the full range of products to use diligently.
I was like 😳😳😳
Anyway.. Laziness got the better of me and I didn't use their products religiously back then, and eventually stopped going back. After which I never attained that flawless perfect skin I was after 😭
But after listening to Dr SK Tan speak today at the opening of #IDSclinic, I finally understood his philosophy and approach to skincare and aesthetics, and my respect for 'Ah Gong' really went up!
Dr SK Tan feels that most skin conditions can be treated with a suitable skincare regime of effective products that has been developed over years of research by himself and other established partners around the world, and that expensive treatments such as lasers should only be used when necessary!
Sometimes you don't know whether your aesthetic doctor just wants to earn your money or not. But I am reassured that Dr SK Tan is one of the most ethical aesthetic doctors around!
I asked Dr SK Tan to pose with the photo taking props with me and he gamely did so hahahaha! My fav doctor!
If you're wondering what happened to DrX, it got bought over by a huge company and thus Dr SK Tan decided to step out to start afresh, giving birth to IDS Clinic!
I couldn't be happier to be invited by @chesterwan for IDS Clinic's official opening, and to have this opportunity to work together with IDS Clinic! ✨✨
Trust me, even if pay money I also gam wan (甘愿), cos I've seen the amazing results from many friends and acquaintances at DrX, which was the work of all the incredible products formulated by Dr SK Tan!
Now I am so excited to start on this new skincare journey with IDS Clinic!
With pretty Valerie and Francesca!
Got to see both familiar faces as well as meet some people in the flesh for the first time! It's always great to see so much excitement among the bloggers, you know you're in for something good!
With the adorable @speishi and @hayleystitch! 💕 These two 可爱到~~~~~
I haven't gone for any official consultation yet, but we got to bring home two brand new innovative products from IDS Clinic first, super excited to try them!
I have so much hopes now~~ 我终于可以美美了吗? 😻✨
Well, stay tuned on my blog to find out more real soon! 😂
After the event, I met up with @evonnz and @trishaliang who spent the day together at Beauty Expo shopping! 😨 Teehee Evonne came to pick me up and we went "flower-shopping" together.. 🌷🌹🍃
Bought a few pretty blooms that I'm gonna use as props for product shots! I need to write another advert tomorrow, but it's for one of my favourite products that I've even shared before on Dayre!! Any guesses again? 😁
We had our dinner at the basement of Novena Square 2, from this tiny stall called Caveman Food!
If you've heard of the paleo diet (super hot trending diet now that advocates whole unprocessed foods and cuts out grain and sugar) then you'd be happy to know that Caveman Food serves up Paleo food! So, no grains, no processed food, no sugar.
Is damn awesome cos that's the kind of diet I've been trying to stick to!
They serve up chicken done in different styles and I loved my Moroccan chicken.
Tasty and tender! They also have chicken done in Italian and Mexico style, which were roasted with different herbs. I still like the Moroccan style cos it has gravy and is juicier!
You can pick from two healthy sides like salad, baked egg, sweet potato etc. Greedy me ordered half a chicken! The other two only ordered drumstick 🍗 Lol I love my meat ❤️
Only minus was the stall doesn't have their own seats & we had to eat at a communal dining area with plastic cutlery 😨
I hope they have their own restaurant space soon!
Oh ya, order the sweet potato side cos it's really nice!! I wanted to cut down on my carbs so I only had the broccoli and carrots but I would totally eat the sweet potato if I weren't trying to keep an eye on my diet.
Quite cheap too, half chicken for $11.90? And there's a set meal as well!
Next time I go IDS Clinic (at Novena Specialist Centre) I'm def gonna go back eat Caveman Food again. Even passed fussy @evonnz's standards 🙊
And no, we didn't skive off today on working out!!
Insanity day 8 done! Though I don't know why I was so sleepy after dinner I went home to take a nap and wasn't feeling very up to working out after that. Too full from chicken 😰
But we still did today's Cardio Power and Resistance! Damn shiong as usual and I was so lousy with the strength and power exercises. I will press on!!!
YZ feels that he has more ab definition already! Cos all the exercises involve so much core muscle work. 💦
