Do u all always put on hair mask to nourish ur hair? For mi.. i usually use hair mask as daily hair conditioner... due to my over damaged end... my hair ends splits like there is no tomorrow... i have no choice but to try out methods to save it... but i guess there is no solution to split ends other than chopping it off... which i really dun wanna do that...
I came across this Ichikami Hair Mask when i am sourcing for hair mask since i already finished my previous one... I am previously using the Essential Damage Care Rich Premier Intensive Hair mask.. this essential hair mask is not bad but i jus wanted to try a different one... so i tot rather than repurchasing the same hair mask...so i took the Ichikami Hair Mask... i have used the shampoo before n i love the scent of the shampoo... and the shampoo is not too bad... not drying but didnt really help in my split ends...
This product comes in a very simple yet pretty packing and with a lid on top... its easier and more convenient... than those normal hair mask when u need to twist open the cap...
Description of the product:
Ichikami hair care series with Rice Premium Ex (Yusuru essence, oil and proteim originate in rice bran) plus 6 kinds of pure japanese herbal essences which nourish, repair, strengthen and give a natural luster to ur hair.
Ichikami Hair Mask also contain Black Soybean and Black Rice Essences which make ur hair silky soft and healthier.
Direction of use:
1. Squeeze dry ur hair after washing with shampoo
2. Apply the hair mask on ur palm n spread it onto ur hair
3. Leave it for 1-2 mins (wrap ur hair with hot towel for better penetration of the product.
4. Rinse off thoroughly
What i like abt this product:
1. The texture of the product is so soft, silky and easy to spread all over my hair
2. The lid which allows mi to conveniently get the product out of the container.. no hassles..
3. I love love love the fruity wild sakura scents.. (it really smells good n lasted whole day)
4. It helps to calm down my spit ends and frizzy hair which makes it looks like its not so damaged.
5. Its not pricey.. affordable
6. The leave on time is rapid unlike other hair mask u need to put and wait for 10-15mins or more.
What i dun like abt this product:
1. It didnt give mi the super soft n silky feeling after rinsing off the product ( maybe i only used twice and my hair is beyond repair)
2. After drying my hair.. it didnt give mi a very smooth feeling.. like normal hair mask.. but it did make it looks better.
Overall: I really love love love the smell n i continue to use this product and do a better review after that.. i guess i will repurchase it cos i really love the scent of it... its still works well on my hair jus not much of the expected smoothness... but it dun get tangled up..
Hope u guys my simple review... n u can get this hair mask at Watson Stores.

We initially decided to go to one of the western food restuarant which i read the review from one of the food blogger... but u know wat? when we reached there.... then shop was closed~ and only closed for a day!! Why am i so suay? Why particularly on Dec 27??! i was so disappointed.... so.. we ended up eating at Japanese Restuarant : HANABI Restuarant & Sake Bar. Oppa once mentioned that this restuarant serves great food and since we are ard that area... we decided to walk in... Its a Ala Carte dinner buffet with tonnes of choices.... super nice n fresh sashimi!! And its at $33++ per pax... so total bill for 2 Pax is $77.68. Slightly pricy but for special occasions... its worth eating... BOth of us enjoyed the food so much... and i didnt regret my choice of coming to HANABI!! I WANA GO HANABI AGAIN!! SOONNN....
Pics of the foods we had tt day... most of them YUMMY! and i can say the sashimi are absolutely fresh!!
Haha... i did missed out some of the photos... too excited with the food... and i forgot to snap it~ haha....
After eating we walked to Bugis Village to shop around and had KOI bubble tea... Super alot of pple Q-ing for the bubble tea... this KOI BBT is special in a way that u can request the sugar level of ur bbt... from 0% sugar to 100% sugar... and i choose the 25% sugar Bubble Milk Tea... i reckoned its not bad but... i guess i am used to bbt tt is sweeter... i am goin to try 50% sugar content next time...! Oppa tried the Plum Green Tea with 0% sugar... he likes it.. but i dun... weird.... too plumy for mi!! haha~
After KOI-ing... Oppa and i went to the beautiful bridge that links to Marina Bay Sands.... i love love love the helix design and the lightings of the bridge... n the niteview is awesome!! Good place for couples or group of frens to chill there... haa~

Doing a short post before i head to bed... went movie with Christine Dear today.... its was so rush... she texted mi around 6.10pm and said that she won a pair of movie tix... and ask if i could watch with her... i was like... ok... but wat time is the show starting... she said 7.15pm.. i was like huh?! OMG i got only an hr to wash up, make up and rush there... and this is crazy... haha.. but i was late at the end.... We watched Love And Other Drugs... starring Anne Hathaway & Jake Gyllenhaal... Its a romantic adult show i can say... many sexual scenes but its really quite touching... other than those XXX scenes~ hahaa!! The story is about Maggie (Anne Hathaway) who is suffering from 1st stage parkinson disease is afraid of being tied down in relationship but met Jamie (Jake Gyllenhaal) who have almost infallible charm with ladies and in the phamaceutical sales. The romantic part of this show is how true love can conquer everything... both fell in love with each other unknowingly and Jamie didnt mind that Maggie is a parkinson patient and is willing to take care of her.
Overall its a nice movie... haha... i will maybe rate it 3/5? Anne Hathaway is soooo gorgeous... i love her...
After the show... we went to macdonald's to have our late dinner... on the way there.. we saw BodyShop sales... so of cos i dragged her to check out if there is anithing worth getting... haha... shoppin is also killer for mi!! haha... End up we both got something similar... jus difference in flavours... haha~~
This is wat i got... starting from the left>>
1. Classic Rose Perfume - Very gentle rose fragrance which i love very much... gentle enough for mi to take it.. (i cant stand super strong perfumes).. gives me a feeling of sweet and feminine after applying it..
2. Rainforest Radiance Conditioner (for coloured hair) - have not tried it yet.. so cant really comment but it smells smoothing... like rainforest... i cant really describe the smell but its quite pleasant to mi..
3. Rainforest Shine Shampoo (For normal to dry hair) - haven tried it too.. haha.. but it belongs to the same range.. smells leafy... haha.. but nice too...
4. Papaya Shower Gel - Tried this before long long time ago... after bathing.. it leaves a super nice sweet papaya fragrance and smooth feeling... love it~
5. Strawberry Puree Body Lotion - i am not a big fan of body lotions cos i seldom apply.. but this one attracts me to try out... soo super sweet smell like burst of strawberries... and its pink... haha~ pink is another killer for mi!! so i got it~
For the Classic rose perfume i got it for $14.90 SGD and item 2 - 5 at 4 for$10... great deal rite? haha~~
And i camwhored before removing my makeup... too rush... didnt put on any foundation...

One more overdue post... i did a mini haul in Dec 2010 when i shop with my xingxing... haa~ actually we meet up because she needs to get xmas pressies for gift exchange with her frens... and i am the only one not working at the moment... and is free for her... so i offered to accompany her.... i got a couple of items... i think i left out one or two items... without pics... but i will post it up in my other posts.. haha...
We went to orchard to hunt for her pressies... its so hard when u need to get things which are nice and with low budget... so... it took us awhile in collecting all the 6 gifts... while choosing her pressies.... i chosed mine too... she made mi spend money~~ :( haha~~
I got this 2 pairs of shoes for $29.90 from The Little Things She Needs located at ION Orchard #B3-52.. go check it out if u r interested... the shoes there are not too bad... haha... frens who knoes mi well will knoe that i am a super fan of stuffs with ribbons.... ribbon is a killer to mi!!! haha~~ i have already tried on these shoes... so far they seems nice... not very painful for ist time wear... i guess i will repurchase it when they are worn out... haha~~
i also got this Rilakkuma pouch in Watsons... I am never leave Watsons empty handed... why??!! hhaha... but i love to shop in Watsons... initially i wanted to get this pouch as a cosmetics pouch which i can bring while travelling... end up after looking at the storage capacity inside... i decided to use it to store my skincare products... (which were already filled into smaller containers for travelling purpose) and bot another blue next day for my cosmetics... so ... i have 2 pouch with same designs but different colour... haha... i think i got these pouches each for only $3.95 SGD from Watsons... and its so handy and cute~
This is the pink one... and below are pics of stuff that i put in~
i think thats abt all the things i bot that day.. another one thing i bot is a bag organiser... its someting like another smaller bag with alot of pockets... good for those bags that have no compartments.... it helps u find ur stuff easier rather than takin a long time trying to dig ur keys or hp.... haha~
Oh i got this cute hello kitty biscuit from Christine dear too.... Super cute hello kitty container with 4 packets of biscuits inside.... 4 different flavour biscuits inside... haha! super love it... but i am not sure wat will i put in this long hello kitty container after finishing the biscuits... haha~~
Ps: i love my eeyores... :D
