My New Toy "Olympus PEN E-PL2"

With the recent release of Panasonic Lumix GF-2 and Olympus PEN EPL-2, I keep asking myself "Should I upgrade to micro 4/3 camera system?” The micro 4/3 system is really a nice compromise between image quality and equipment size / weight. I did have a pretty hard time choosing the right camera as all of them have their strength and weaknesses. Of course I have done my research, consult an expert / friends and visits retail stores. 

Finally I ended up with Olympus PEN EPL-2 and it's going to take with me while I am travelling to Phuket tomorrow. WellI think it is a good solid upgrade from my Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS15. Yay! Mission completion!

Review : Aqualabel Aqua Enhancer MO

I was one of the 10 lucky winners to be exclusively selected to use the Aqualabel Aqua Enhancer MO for 3 weeks and review on the product.  Well, I’m sure most of you would have familiar with AQUALABEL from Shiseido by now. In fact, it’s the No. 1 Whitening and Anti-aging brand in the self-select category (under 2000¥) in Japan.

Aqualabel adopted 4 essential steps to the best skin care routines – Cleanse, Tone, Moisturize & Enhance. My question is how to ‘Enhance’? Here’s is where Aqua Enhancer comes into the picture.

The Aqua Enhancer is the star performer with high concentrations of Aqua Synergy. It forces essential ingredients to sink deeper into your skin while softens skin’s outer layer so that benefits of ingredients maximally absorbed. Skin cells are saturated with generous moisture which is then sealed off to keep skin hydrated for hours on end.

There are currently 2 types of Aqua Enhancer: MO (red) for moisturizing, best for dry / sensitive skin; whereas WT (blue) for whitening.

After applying lotion and emulsion, pour some essence (aqua enhancer) onto your palm and massage it into skin using fingertips or dampen a cotton pad with essence and then gently dab on face and neck.

I've been using Aqua Enhancer for almost 3 weeks now, and I'm totally in love with this product! The light clean floral rose scent helps me relax and forget my busy work. I love the extremely lightweight texture, it absorbs quickly to my skin without feeling sticky at all and leaves my skin feeling velvety smooth and moisturized. The best part is… you can use the Aqua Enhancer with your normal skincare routine; meaning that you don’t need to change your full range of products. Does it sound great to you?!

Are you tempted? The Aqua Enhancer is really worth raving for and it’s definitely a must try products! Do drop by your nearest Watsons stores now and grab it! Happy trying!

My Christmas @ Universal Studios Japan

Universal Studios Japan (USJ) is one of Japan's most popular amusement parks. There aren't really any thrill rides, but it has all the movie-themed rides that make it fun! I spent my last Christmas there and its was a fun time. The park was extremely busy especially during the Christmas and New Year's holidays in Japan. You will be surprised that the parks packed with lots of Japanese rather than visitors, they really embrace USJ and have made it the busiest theme park on earth. So better pick your day carefully though.

There are two types of passes available: 1-day Studio Pass (includes admission to all attractions) & 2-days Studio Pass (includes admission to all attractions for 2 conservative days). To avoid waiting in lines at popular attractions, you could always consider purchasing a Universal Express Pass Booklet at the park when you go. But it’s not cheap to buy.

The best ride I had was The Amazing Adventures of Spiderman and I almost queued 2 hours for it but it's really worth it. It is a indoor thrill ride that combines 3-D special effects, live action and state-of-the-art, 12-passenger ride vehicles that put you right into the thick of the action. You’ll need 3-D glasses for this incredible simulated ride as you follow Spider-Man on a fun-filled adventure high above the city. I totally fall in love with Spiderman after the ride.

You can also enjoy variety of exiting theme rides and shows inspired by world famous movies, animations and much much more, such as Terminator 2, Space Fantasy, Shrek's 4-D Adventure, Sesame Street 4-D Move Magic, Back To The Future, Jurassic Park & etc.

USJ has numerous events and parades that occur during the day. In Christmas, there is always a Christmas-themed parade featuring floats based on Hello Kitty, Peanuts, Shrek and Sesame Street, and the dancers are even wearing outfits depicting the Sesame characters' signatures.

I really enjoy visiting the Universal Citywalk especially shopping for those unique and unusual merchandise that I won't see elsewhere. But if you're looking for something made in Japanmake sure you check the labels. Of course "Made in Japan" just got more expensive than "Made in China."

 Snoopy Cup O Noodles : Cute?!

Well, this was truly an amazingly fun day of standing in lines and enjoying some fun rides. I am glad that I managed to see four attractions during the 9 hours visits. But I need even more time for shopping! ;P
