Happy Chinese New Year!


Hello everyone!

Here's wishing you a very Happy Chinese New Year!
May you all have a wonderful, prosperous, healthy, wealthy and happy year of the water snake...Huat ah!!! :D

I hope you're all having a wonderful New Year so far. The public holidays are definitely awesome and I'm having such a wonderful break doing absolutely zero work, stuffing my face with goodies and visiting my friends and loved ones. I know I haven't been very active on my blog. I'm a lot more active and current on Instagram, so you can hit me up @thepinkflaregirl for 'live' updates and more! Do say 'hi' there! :) 

Here's my lovely family with our only grandparent left. Grandpa is 97 years old and still going strong. This CNY has been pretty low for our family as our maternal grandparents left us recently and this is the first CNY without them. We're missing them so much and are missing their handmade 'ngoh hiangs', home-cooked curry and massive steamboat affair that we had every year. We hope you're both in a happy place looking out for each other and watching over us! 

Here's my sister. :)

Pink Flare's Korean Fever Dress for CNY Day 1. I love the checkered prints and asymmetrical hemline on this piece. 

It's almost a month after my birthday, and I'm still celebrating. Lucky me. :) I'm sharing the cake with Penny, also a birthday girl.

The must-have 'lucky' yu-sheng. Huat everyone!!

Not sure if you guys noticed, but I had a hair-cut/colour and changed my hair's parting to the centre before the CNY. I've been meaning to try a centre part and colour my hair for the longest time and Serene (from Chez Vous Salon) did a wonderful job. So happy!

Here's the process of getting my hair coloured and cut.





I got a light brown colour done with subtle undertone highlights. I love love love the colour (and cut)!

Love that my hair is still soft and smooth after the colour. Serene did a quick colour treatment after the dyeing to seal the colour and condition the hair. Serene really understands my hair and gives me the best possible treatments and cuts so that I can maintain it daily. There's no point in only having gorgeous locks when you walk out of the salon and having a nightmare to maintain it daily. I have natural curls in my hair, so I can't have too many layers done or it'll get really messy. So Serene gives me straight cuts with a wee bit of layers at the ends to show the undertone highlights. Mad props to her!

Colour Extend shampoo from Redken for luscious locks and to maintain the colour. :) 

Here's how to look for Serene at Chez Vous for awesome hair:
