Look what greeted me at Finnair’s check-in counter in Helsinki!
Being a frequent traveller, checking-in at airports is nothing unusual for me. But this time, I was totally in for a surprise! The flight to the Angry Birds Asian Challenge started right from the check-in counter. This meant that every fare-paying passenger were also in for a sweet treat, & this was just the appetizer!
After a short stint in the beautiful city of Helsinki, it was time to embark on a 12-hr flight back to Singapore on Finnair’s Angry Birds flight.
Oreo Cheesecake or Baileys Cheesecake? Well, what about having them both in one cake! That was exactly what I did for my hubby’s birthday, a perfect marriage between Oreo Cookies & Baileys Irish Cream!
The result was a blowout! It was a fresh interpretation of a novel challenge on the plate for me; this new taste will unquestionably appeal to the adventurous palates. The birthday cake stood out for its Oreo biscuit texture & rich cheesy Baileys flavour. Only complaint from me: I could’ve been more generous with the Baileys. Lol!
A trip to Helsinki wouldn’t be complete without seeing the Suomenlinna Sea Fortress, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Together with my travel buddy Bryan, one of the few bloggers on this trip, we took a 20-min ferry ride from the Market Square to the Fortress. Although it was drizzling when we reached our destination, it soon turned sunny again after some time.

“Don’t forget to bring a pair of comfortable walking shoes, Helsinki is a walking city”. That was the perky advice I got from Petteri, Sales Director of Finnair, when they flew me to Helsinki. Discovering the city was a breeze with the 24-hr Helsinki Card which cost €35, courtesy of Finnair.

Beauty rituals have thrived through generations & we've come a long way since the days of Cleopatra. During my modelling & flying days, I struggled just as much as anyone with my skin, especially when my job required me to be skilful at things like make-up, skincare etc. In particularly, the air in the cabin was so dry, I’d to pay a lot of attention keeping my skin nourished. Besides taking supplements like Evening Primrose, Royal Jelly, Bird’s Nest etc, a reputable range of skincare also came in handy.
I’ll be going 46 this November; fine lines, pigmentation etc, seemed to be appearing everywhere on my face. These days, I try to stay clear of make-up, unless really necessary. Instead, I’d invest heavily on skincare. But do these products that promise youthful appearance really work?
