Everyone has their areas of concern and insecurities regardless of how fat/skinny you think he or she is, and we all simply have different body shapes.
As I'm the type to eat a lot, the bulk of my fats skip my tummy and head right into my thighs (this doesn't mean my tummy doesn't have fats ok, just lesser than my thighs).. and it doesn't help that I'm not even 1.6m haha!
I have what they call THUNDER THIGHS.
Having been insecure of this part of my body for a long long time, I jumped at the opportunity when I heard that Dore Aesthetics offer Fat Freezing for thighs.
A highly accredited aesthetics establishment, you can see their awards and articles featuring them on the walls of their premises.
Before any treatment, it's important to have a proper consultation to explain what you hope to achieve from the treatments offered, and what the procedure would be like, how it works, and pain level etc.
For myself, I told the consultant that within one treatment, I'm not expecting very drastic results (like from liposuction), but I just want my thighs to be slightly less bulky.
She explained that the Fat Freezing treatment (using FDA Approved Cryolipolysis Technology) at Dore Aesthetics uses a non-invasive cool body shaping device to eliminate fat without surgery. The applicators they use will freeze the fats in the target area, and these selected fats will be removed from the body by apoptosis process, which is the natural method of cell death. So I'll need to drink a lot of water after the treatment to help drain the unwanted fats away by our body's lymphatic system.
This treatment is best for adults who are lazy to work out, or have busy schedules, and don't want to go under the knife.
Best results would be from 1 month to 3 months' time.
Common areas of treatment:
I found the consultation session really informative, and it feels like they really knew what they were doing, so it gave me a lot of assurance.
Time for treatment!
Took some photos before the treatment & marking my fatty thighs to target the specific areas.
I was informed that the problem with my thighs is actually the back part, resulting in the bulky outlook. Thus, this was where they needed to focus more on.
They first placed gel pads on my skin to prevent any frostbites as the machine would freeze the fats till under 0 degC!
Next there was a tight squeezing sensation (totally bearable) on my thighs which I was secretly happy about because I know it would destroy my fats hahah!
Pain level: 0.5/10
The machine would squeeze and freeze the fats for about 45 minutes (usually treatment time is 45 mins to 1 hour per area), so you can really just take a quick nap like I did.
Aftermath of the treatment - a really cooling sensation on my thighs, some mild redness and that's it!
I walked around in heels with no problems after that too.
You might want to avoid wearing mini skirt or shorts for the next few days if there are any tiny bruising.
I had some small bruises for 3 days before they completely subsided.
Absolutely no downtime, I still went to enjoy a carnival after the treatment, knowing that I can look forward to slimmer thighs!
My favourite part during consultation was the therapist telling me there was no need to restrict my diet :D
I was so so happy to hear that, cause I'm the type whose mood is heavily reliant on food LOL!
Back at Dore Aesthetics 1 month later for review photos to be taken.
BEFORE & AFTER
Sorry I don't have a nice butt or thighs ok, and yes I have a lot of stretch marks too which ijs why I don't like to wear revealing clothes. Try not to judge too harshly....
And TBH I don't work out I just eat eat and eat hahah.
As you can see, no edits done (stretch marks all still there), and the results are way better than I'd expected!
I'd thought it'd be something really mild, or I'd also be okay with no visible change, because I've been binging a lot during Xmas & New Year's Eve.
So I'm really quite shocked myself at the results.
The targeted treatment area was quite visibly improved, and even the cellulite marks are less obvious.
And this is just after ONE treatment. I'm totally tempted to go for more now lol!
The therapist also told me the best results would be from now till 3 months after treatment, I can't wait!
Thanks Dore Aesthetics for showing me the wonders of modern technology, such that I can have a safe, non-sweaty and super comfortable way of dealing with my fatty thighs!

Finally, I'm blogging about my Japan trip!
I'll be posting my itinerary at the end of the entire post when I'm done, so do look out for it! :D
It's actually my first time planning an entire trip, so please pardon me if our planning isn't very efficient ok hahah!
For example, our first stop was Tokyo and we already booked our flight to arrive at the wrong airport (which was further) LOL!
Sean has never been to Japan before, and the last time I visited was yearsssss ago with my family, so I can't really remember how to travel around Japan either. So we're starting from a blank slate here.
day one - tokyo (shibuya station)
We arrived in the afternoon and after checking in Shibuya Tobu hotel (few minutes uphill from Shibuya Metro Station), our first meal was Ichiran ramen!
The hotel was spacious and clean.
I was told by countless people who've been to Japan before that Ichiran ramen is a must try.
True enough, one try and we're hooked!
Ichiran doesn't have other franchises in other parts of the world, so it's definitely worth travelling to Japan for :P
Just had an extremely restful off-day at a gorgeous black & white themed hotel that's just about 3 days old - Hotel Nuve Urbane.
From an extremely comfortable, clean and huge bed with a ton of squishy and soft pillows & blankets to their complimentary mini bar, 2 small balconies, Nespresso Machine with capsules provided, quick wifi to a sleek bathtub, Hotel Nuve Urbane is possibly one of my favourite hotels to have a staycation at!
With it's chic black & white decor that is meticulous down to the small details, I'm pretty sure I'll be back again at Hotel Nuve Urbane!
So many potential photo spots, I'm in love!
Couldn't stop taking photos in the toilet!
After our nap, we also explored their Roof level in the evening!
Some amazing photos from their IG account!
As the hotel is really really new, their pool is still not ready yet, so I'll definitely have to head back when it's up! :D
Got a sneak preview of it under construction, and I'm so excited for it!
You can check out their rooms and pricings here:
Better book it fast!
Such a chio looking & new hotel, confirm get hyped up super quick haha!
Thank you for reading!
Did a really impulsive decision to get cheek fillers at my favourite clinic the other day..
And I realised that a lot of impulsive decisions actually end up really good haha!
My eyebags have always been a problem since I was a kid. So finally, I just had the "heck it, let's just see if this works" attitude when I agreed to cheek fillers!

5 things you must bring
A few months back, I did my most painful facial treatment ever - Thermage.
I've read quite a bit about Thermage online, and I chose to get my treatment done at my usual facial clinic since I'm using their skincare products daily as well.
I was told that the most obvious results of the treatment would be seen about 3 months later, so I wanted to post some comparison photos and share the process.

Always wanted to visit the DC Super Heroes Cafe at MBS ever since a long time ago, and the previous time I went there it was at night (playing PokemonGO....) and it was closing so I'd only managed to buy their 3D ice creams.
This time we went early to check out their Limited Edition Wonder Woman themed dishes, drinks & desserts!
These days, experts say your hair is what really betrays your age.
Here's how to stay forever young — follicularly speaking.
Concerned about how my hair's really brittle these days due to my obsession with bleaching, and also some bumps from clogged follicles on my scalp recently, I went to TK TrichoKare at Serangoon NEX the other day to get my scalp checked.
Waiting at their comfortable treatment room with a lovely cup of tea for consultation :)
Spent a night over at Hotel Nuve Heritage for Sean's birthday! ^~^

The hotel has a cafe at the lobby, and around the hotel you can find lots of places for yummy food within walkable distance that opens till really late at night if you're the type who loves supper! :P
We had supper at BBQ Box during our staycation!
Please don't be fooled by the cosy entrance of the hotel, it's actually surprisingly MASSIVE & SPACIOUS once you enter! :D
I picked the Explorer Suite for our stay! :)
Customised giant silver confetti balloon, black-white themed balloons & marble balloons from MistyDayDream to decorate the (already super fabulous) room!
The delivery man arrived earlier than we did to check in, so Danny from Hotel Nuve Heritage helped me to arrange for this! Thank you so much Danny! :D
