The kind Carrie invited Fidelis and I alongside our partners amongst other foodie bloggers for a food tasting session at Crowne Plaza Changi Airport. This time, we'll be trying their Oktoberfest menu!

In conjunction with Oktoberfest, Azur has launched their very own Oktoberfest menu featuring mouthwatering German style dishes alongside their usual fare of fresh seafood and other Asian dishes. However, I'll just highlight on the Oktoberfest menu.

They served an assortment of yummy bread and pretzels which smelled and looked really delicious!

There were popular german dishes such as Bavarian Kaese Spaetzle with Emmental Cheese, Chouroute en Garnie with Mustard and Gravey and Goulaschsuppe with Herb Sour Cream & Garlic Croutons. The c(hubby) thoroughly enjoyed the Goulaschsuppe (Beef Goulash). There were plenty of beef cubes in this dish and it was such a delightful heartful dish. Heck, this could be a main course for me!

A must try is the Eggs Cocotte with Bacon Slab and Chives. We called it the "german chawanmushi"!

I'm not sure if you guys realised... but this year is the ten years anniversary of me blogging! This is why I've been trying to do as many giveaways as I can! Continue reading to find out how you can stand a chance to win Fancl's Moisuring Line worth S$196!

I have been a fan of Fancl for a while now. Even before I was invited to their blogger events, I have been a big user of their cleansing oil and their collagen drinks. I'll like to share about 3 different product ranges here with everyone. Reason so, is because I believe not everyone has the same skin type. See what's best for you and use accordingly!

For the troubled skin.

Fancl has launched the new Fancl Pore Cleansing Pack and Skin Renewal Pack which is targeted to tackle clogged pores, blackheads and impurities.

nadnut, singapore beauty blog, Singapore Beauty blogger, singapore lifestyle blog, Singapore Contests Blog, Fancl Moisturising Range, Fancl Giveaway, Fancl giveaway by nadnut

The new Pore Cleansing Pack (S$58) is a daily rinse off mask which helps to dissolve, absorb and remove impurities while minimising the appearance of pores.

The new Skin Renewal Pack (S$46) is a gel mask that preps the skin for optimal absorption of other skincare products while purifying the skin by restoring damaged skin cells. I felt an instant moisturising and softening effect after using the Skin Renewal Pack.

For instant hydration.

nadnut, singapore beauty blog, Singapore Beauty blogger, singapore lifestyle blog, Singapore Contests Blog, Fancl Moisturising Range, Fancl Giveaway, Fancl giveaway by nadnut

This range is not only for dry skin. It is also suitable for oily skin. Some people feel that oily skin need not be moisturised which isn't true! One must always hydrate the skin so that to enhance skin's radiance and suppleness. Sometimes oily skin are actually caused by dehydrated skin forcing one's skin to produce extra oil to make up for the dehydration!

The Moisturizing Line works to instantly hydrate skin by improving skin’s natural moisturizing function. It effectively delivers moisture deep into skin and promotes moisture retention, enhancing skin’s radiance and suppleness. When natural moisturizing functions are restored, skin is able to naturally fend off problems such as dryness and roughness.

The FANCL Moisturizing Line is a perfect marriage of FANCL’S MUTENKA philosophy with Advanced Penetrating Nano Capsule Technology, which allows beauty products to be delivered quickly and deeply into the skin, for fast visible results.

The science behind FANCL Moisturizing Line effectiveness lies in its key active ingredients. Leading the way is natural plant extract, Raffinose that develops the pathway for moisture to penetrate deeply into the skin. Fresh Royal Jelly extract, one of nature’s treasures, then serves as a catalyst by enhancing the delivery of moisture to cells, allowing nutrients to be effectively absorbed by the skin. The concluding act is the all-natural Rice Ferment Extract which improves the skin’s natural moisturizing power.

If you are buying this range, you may notice two types of product numbers. I is for oily skin while II is for combination, normal and dry skin. I can currently using this range for my dry skin and I've definitely felt results so far! Aside from using the skincare, I will be trying out Fancl's supplements such as the Beauty Vitamin & Collagen tablets and the Moisty Hyaluronic Acid tablets to help moisturise my skin. Hopefully I have radiant skin for my #project1314 wedding dinner!

For the tired skin.

I love that Fancl has something for everyone! As you guys know, I'm hitting the big 30 next year. As we grow older, our skin's natural production of collagen starts to decline. The loss of collagen coupled with the external factors such as UV rays will only escalate our skin's aging. Needless to say, I'm getting a bit paranoid about my anti ageing skincare routine. I've been taking collagen drinks and supplements since the start of last year and I was pleased to find out about Fancl's latest range!

This new and improved formula makes HTC Collagen DX the quick and convenient solution for women on the go. Available in tablet and powder forms, the supplement is easy to consume and helps skin to maintain a healthy glow that shines from within.

Giveaway time!

A super belated post! The hubby planned for a yummy dinner for my birthday! He brought me to Wooloomooloo, a steak house for a sumptuous birthday dinner.

Background info: C(hubby) first found out about my blog way before I met him. It was mainly because we had mutual friends. Upon reading my blog, he realised we both had the same favourite food: steak. And that was when he started reading my blog. Well, mainly for the steak reviews. LOL

If one was to compare to Morton's, Wooloomooloo's ambience and decor was a bit more intimate than Morton's. It wasn't as noisy and it was much brighter.

I miss my dipdye hair by Shunji Matsuo 313. And well, my long hair.

I love their onion bread! Very yummy and fragrant!

The foie gras was also delicious. I liked that I could use a few different type of salt to pair with it!

We shared this huge slab of meat! The tomahawk if I remembered correctly! While the serving was huge, I personally preferred a different cut of meat. If I were to return, I'll definitely opt for a tenderloin instead. The tomahawk was a tad too much was us two.

We ordered sautéed mushrooms as our side. Simple and yummy.

I was surprised with a birthday cake! Chocolate lava cake! Personally I preferred Morton's chocolate cake. That's definitely one of the best chocolate lava cakes in Singapore.

The c(hubby) also ordered fireworks. LOL. I kid. My birthday was on the eve of Chinese New Year thus there were fireworks. I like to pretend that it was meant for me. :p

A black and gold day. Simple black bareback dress coupled with Charles and Keith wedges and a gold Longchamp bag. Regretted buying the short handle bag though, I find it a bit uncomfy to carry around. Will def buy a long handle version next time!

I was first introduced to Crabtree & Evelyn by Jacelyn. She had bought me a Rosewater handcream as a Christmas present a few years ago and I have been hooked on it ever since. My blogger pal Eileen also bought me a Crabtree & Evelyn care pack previously before for my birthday.

I was invited to Crabtree & Evelyn's blogger event a few months back. Unfortunately, due to work, I couldn't attend the event.

Imagine my surprise when the kind folks sent me a few lovely goodies.

Somerset Meadow Bath & Shower Gel and Scented Body Lotion is such a lovely scented Shower Gel. The hubby LOVES this scent on me. I love that the Shower Gel has a good lather and isn't drying on my already dry skin. The Scented Body Lotion was not overpowering and it was absorbed really quickly. Definitely no sticky feeling after applying it!

I received the Crabtree and Evelyn Lily Hand Care Collection after that. Consisting of a conditioning hand wash and an ultra moisturing hand therapy hand cream. The star product would have to be the hand therapy. Made up of Shea Butter and Macademia nut oil, it really helped soothe my dry hands.

Personally I'm a bigger fan of Rosewater and Lavender however both the Lily scent is definitely growing on me.

Give it a shot if you like! I think the packs are extremely value for money. And if you're a friend and am fretting on what to get for me for Christmas, HAHAHAAA, you'll know what to do!! :p

I visited Revive Wellness not too long ago for my Princess Brazilian Wax session.

I love the kimono at Revive Wellness.

Extremely comfy!

Haven't went for waxing for a while..

The calm before the storm.

Personally I felt that the particular session was a bit more painful than usual. I'm guessing it's because I haven't went continuously for a while :(

Thankfully the cold hammer and mask helped soothe my pain.

After the waxing session, I went to Attica to support Milly's Best Model of the Year event! Bumped into crazy Elaine there!

Went back extremely intoxicated....

And had to wake up for a 9am movie the next day. GG!

The kind folks from Platinum Movie Suites invited some of us bloggers for a private screening of Violet and Daisy!

Pic with Randy and Esther!

With the silly c(hubby)!

Enjoying a welcome drink!

Super duper comfy chairs! And great leg space!

C(hubby) looking #likeaboss.

All snuggled up with a pillow and blankie!

We were also served with yummy snacks!
