B.ha is an offshoot of lifestyle brand Daniel Hechter. The boutique carries an exclusive in-house lingerie line, put together by a group of international designers. Each collection is marked by exquisite detailing and crafted styling, with materials handpicked from the finest French fabrics and lace. French fabric is regarded the world over as one of the best types of materials for lingerie. Therefore it is not surprising that French lingerie is often voted as one of the finest lingerie available in the world of fashion. If you consider the iconic images and styles of stars since the 1940s you will notice that French lingerie has been in the spotlight for a long time.
There are four ranges — Sexy Glam, Romance, Essentials, and Swimwear — designed to complement your body shape while being feminine and provocative. You get the ultimate intimate shopping experience here. Each piece of lingerie is stored inside drawers labeled with specific sizes — simply picks the ones that catch your eye and head to the boudoir-like fitting rooms. The rooms are spacious enough to fit another person inside, and you can also choose the mood you want in the room — romance, sexy or glamour —to see how your lingerie looks like in different lighting.
If you can’t decide what to buy, simply park yourself at one of the two cozy lounge areas and take your time to decide on your purchases. If you need assistance or even a cup of cappuccino, just call for the sales concierge! Read the rest of this entry »
Chalone is the place to go for beautiful and sensual lingerie. As the exclusive distributor of many European brands, it offers the finest selection of French, Italian and Romanian lingerie, from makers such as Lejaby, Simone Perele, I.D. Sarrieri, Jolidon, Valery and Aubade.
The boutique is divided into two sections: a brightly lit area displaying everyday basics and problem solvers like loss-back bras, and a more warmly lit section filled with necessities for a night of seduction.
Don’t be stuck on bra size here as each brand has its own unique fit —the elasticity and type of materials used will determine the size you wear.
Chalone’s trained lingerie consultants (aka Chalone’s Angels) do not use a tape measure to determine your size. They’ll tell you that it doesn’t take a woman’s unique body shape into consideration. Instead, they’re trained to assess each customer using their superior product knowledge and fitting expertise. The personalized fitting can take as long as you want, until you’re completely satisfied. Read the rest of this entry »
Blush! Marks a move away from the utilitarian design and function of intimate wear to stylish lingerie made from the finest fabrics. The attraction of the boutique lies in its ability to offer a wide — and sometimes exclusive — range of intimate apparel from the world’s top lingerie houses.
The delectable line-up is practically guaranteed to boost any woman’s confidence, from the sexy and fashion-forward White Laundry, to the detail-driven Princesse Tam Tam, playful Ed Hardy Intimates, sensual Dim and the legendary Italian Parah.
In addition to imported brands, Blush! Has a long tradition and proven track record of producing stylish intimates under its own label. The designs are European-inspired, but the materials, such as French lace and stretchy fabric, are carefully selected to provide the best fit for Asian women. Read the rest of this entry »
One of the perks of being a professional model is that you learn to create different looks from the experts. Hair styling can dramatically affect how a woman looks, so it’s very important that my hair looks its best at every shoot, whether I’m doing an editorial project or advertising campaign.
On my days off, I’d rather experiment with my styling tools than make an appointment at the salon, before heading to town for drinks with my friends.
One of my all-time favorites is Panasonic’s EH 1771, a lightweight curling iron that gives me gorgeous and healthy-looking curls in minutes. This is a must-have, especially when a last-minute appointment crops up. Read the rest of this entry »

PHILIPS SATINELLE ICE PREMIUM
The longest and lightest, its slim handle was easy to grip. It has ceramic blades with a slight curve. There is a two-speed knob in front.
We could use it cordless or plugged into a power point. Takes 16 hours of charging for 20 minutes of use. It comes with a shaving head and two skin coolers — for the leg, and the bikini line and underarms — which makes epilating less painful. Just freeze the skin coolers and attach to the epilator before use. It also comes with an exfoliating buff, charger holder, small cleaning brush and a pouch. Read the rest of this entry »
VALERA COMFORT’EPIL SET 650.02
Flatter and wider than the rest, it gave a good grip with its narrower end. The epilator head is straight and made up of 36 tweezers discs that are designed to epilate quickly and effectively. Switches on with the two-speed switch — a spotlight comes on as well.
It comes with three heads — to epilate, shave and exfoliate; also includes an attachment for sensitive areas, an extra exfoliation attachment, cleaning brush and a pouch. It can be used corded or cordless. The first charge takes 16 hours; subsequent ones take eight hours for an hour of use.
We would have preferred a slightly contoured blade, which hugs skin better. But it removed all hairs effectively, although skin felt a little raw after use.
Light and handy

BRAUN SILK.EPIL XPRESSIVE 5375Z
Its slightly curvy shape made it the most ergonomic. A bit heavy, but the weight and tiltable epilating head pressed close to the skin for a good shave. Epilates at two speeds, with a bright red light illuminating the skin. Two smaller lights indicate when it’s fully charged.
It comes with an epilating head with three caps — beginner, efficiency (for high speed) and massage (for less pain) — and a shaving head with a trim and shave option.
