On my recent trip to Mosche Grand Hyatt, my stylist decided to give me a Root Perm, specifically it is called a Directional Root Perm. The perm won’t give me curly hair, but this technique adds long-lasting body and lifts near the scalp without curling the rest of the hair.

ninja akasaka directions
Be warned foodies, this is not your usual kind of restaurant! Diners enter this Japanese eatery through secret doors in pitch dark led by a Ninja. Even the entrance is hard to locate; it took us some effort to find the main entrance to the restaurant which is a small black door almost non-existent.

Zeltiq CoolMini Before and After Photos
As age catches up, my double chin is also getting more obvious although having a double chin doesn’t necessarily mean one is fat. During one of my visits to EHA Clinic, a reputable aesthetic clinic located in Shaw Centre, I raised my concern to Dr Tam who recommended the Zeltiq CoolMini as one of the options to remove double chin without undergoing any surgery.

Zeltiq CoolSculpting Machine
Fat freezing is not new to me as I had previously gone through CoolSculpting treatment for my tummy, a well-accepted procedure for freezing away stubborn fats. Although CoolSculpting has been around for years, the Zeltiq CoolMini applicator was only introduced in Singapore sometime last year.

The smaller applicator FDA-approved fat-freezing machine, CoolMini is designed to target areas like Double Chin, Armpits and Knee areas by freezing away the stubborn fat and contouring without any surgery or downtime.

coolsculpting zeltiq coolmini double chin before after results
I had just gone for my 1-month review recently, and certainly saw some positive results. Although best result is achieved in 3 months, one can see a noticeable improvement in just 1 month. Generally, one session is all you need; you will get results in just 1 or 2 visits.

The popular non-invasive fat reduction process uses crypolipolysis freezing technology that freezes fats faster than other cells, so there is no damage to the surrounding tissues. Zeltiq CoolSculpting has been clinically tested to help reduce fats by up to 20% of the treated area!

So if you have a Double Chin and wanna take years off you to achieve a younger look, I am going to walk you through my CoolSculpting experience with the Zeltiq CoolMini in this post. I will also talk about Diamond Pola Neck Treatment, another option to consider.

Siem Reap’s Latest Boutique Hotel, Jaya House River Park

siem reap jaya house river house deals
Nestled serenely alongside the Siem Reap River in a verdant enclave is one of Siem Reap’s newest boutique hotels, the Jaya House River Park. Opened in December 2016, this petite lush haven is located about 20 minutes away from Siem Reap International Airport and a six-minute tuk tuk journey from town in the direction of the UNESCO World Heritage listed Angkor site.

With the Ecole Francasi Extreme Orient, the Enkosa Pagoda and the Angkor Conservation Authority in the neighbourhood, Jaya House River Park is shrouded in a definitive sense of heritage and culture. ‘Jaya’ is a shortened version of Jayavarman, the 9th century king who unified the Khmer states into one empire. Designed by V-Design Asia based in Siem Reap, the Jaya House River Park is a modern, luxurious resort integrating Khmer culture and Western design. Its slightly off the beaten track location ensures a tranquil retreat away from the bustling town yet still readily accessible with the complimentary use of the hotel’s fleet of tuk tuks or two-wheeled carriages pulled by a motorbike from 4.30 am to 10 pm.
