Face Krave: Beauty People Makeup [Sponsored Review]

Taking a break from all the skincare reviews, here's another makeup post!
This time round, I bring you Beauty People products that I got from Face Krave,  an online store that specially selects popular and effective products from South Korea!

I have never heard about the brand Beauty People prior to this but it caught my eye with their Snow White Collection (available on Face Krave too) on Instagram, so when I was given the choice to review their products, I jumped on to the opportunity.

As you can tell, this review post will be focused on their eye makeup products because the eyes are what I usually focus on when I do my makeup. So without further ado, let's get started on my review!


Beauty People Auto Clear Remover

This is in a slim pen shaped remover  which is made to  be  handled and used conveniently. You can easily correct any smudged eyeliner or eyeshadow with this remover. It is precise and easy to use.

The organic ingredients in the pen help to protect the eye area so you do not have to worry about your skin becoming red and dry after the correction as it glides on easily with only a slight touch.

To Use:

1) Use on areas with makeup errors
2) Remove it with tissue or cotton bud after 5-10seconds

Texture: Like a lip balm

Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Paraffin, Tricaprylin, Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil, Polyglyceryl-2 Triisostearate, Sorbitan Sesquioleate, Zinc Stearate, Hydrogenated Coconut Oil, C12-15 Alkyl Ethylhexanoate, Polyethylene, Camellia Japonica Seed Extract (AND) Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Nelumbium Nucifera Flower Exttract (AND) Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Ascorbic Acid, Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Oil"


Product Rating: 9.5/10

This has made my life a lot easier when it comes to correcting mistakes made whenever I do my eye makeup. I've used this to correct and even out my eyeliner, eye shadow fallout, and even mascara boo-boos. 

I like how even though it has an oily base, it doesn't effect the rest of the makeup or the finish once I remove it with a tissue.

A tip I can leave you with is to wipe and disinfect the tip after each use to prevent contamination and breeding of unwanted stuff!

Miss 100 Super Waterproof Gel Eyeliner (Real Brown)

This waterproof gel eyeliner comes in vivid colours that can also be used as an eyeshadow with a gradation effect by blending it out with a brush or your finger. It comes along with sharpener attached at the back to maintain a sharp tip for easy application.

To Use:
Eyeliner: Line your eyes following your natural eye shape and flick at the ends for a winged look.

Eye shadow: Draw out a more defined shape and blend it out gently by using a brush or your fourth finger to create graduation eye shadow effect.

Product Rating: 8/10
I'm no stranger to eyeliners, and with that being said, I have a few expectations when it comes to assessing how good an eyeliner is. I like how this is a twist-up gel eyeliner pencil, because I don't like the hassle of sharpening everytime. That being said, if you require a sharp tip for a precise winged eye look, there's a little sharpener attached with this pencil that you can use to sharpen the tip.

I like how easily it glided onto my skin during my first few uses, however, I've come to realised that after so many use, the gel eyeliner lead has dried up a little which create a little drag when I use it now. That being said, in its prime state, I could easily glide the eyeliner along my lids and smudge it out for a softer or smoky eye look.

Fix Pearl Pigment Pact in #Glow Light and #Twilight

This pigment pack is a high pigmented pearl powder eyeshadow used to create a sparkly and bright eye makeup effect. It contains pearl powder for a strong glittering eye makeup.

To Use:
1) Run your brush over pigments, tap off excess
2) Apply color across entire lid from lash line to the area above the crease.

Texture: feels like butter with chunky glitter

Glow Light - Light marroon base with gold glitter flecks
Twilight - Light grey base with multi-coloured gliter flecks

Cost: $11.90 each

Product Rating: 6/10
There's no denying how pretty these shades are, I went "Ooos" and "Awwws" as I was swatching them on the back of my hand. Dapping my fingertip into the pot, these eyeshadows feels and glides on like butter.

However, I also noted that the glitter flecks felt chunky and hence, when applying it over the eyelids, I noticed a couple of fallouts and it does have a mild scratch sensation whenever I blink (because I have hooded eyelids).

I used my finger and a brush to apply the eyeshadow over each lids to see if it makes a difference. With my finger, I was able to pack on more pigments onto my lids and there was a little fallout. With an eyeshadow brush, I was able to blend the eyeshadow out easily but there were a lot of fallouts. So I guess, it really boils down to the look you want to go for to decide whether to use a brush or your finger.

After a day of this eyeshadow on my eyelids, I came home to find glittler all over my cheeks and under my eyes. So I would advice using primer to minimise fallouts and creasing.

Bubble Gum Mascara (Volume Curl)

Water and smudge resistance, this mascara creates volumised eyelashes for a sexy cat eye effect with its unique triangular brush.

Unique ingredients are used to enable the mascara liquid to stretch like bubble gum to stick firmly onto the lashes, coating every strand to create rich and long lashes.

To Use:
Sweep up from lash line in a zigzag motion to coat every strand evenly and prevent lashes from clumping.

Styrene/Acrylates/Ammonium Methacrylate Copolymer, Water, Butylene Glycol, Iron Oxides (Ci 77499), Copernica Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, Besswax, Stearic Acid, Alcohol, Triethanolamine, Microcrystalline Wax, Sorbitan Sesquioleate, Polysorbate 60, Cetearyl Alcohol, Dioscorea Japonica Root Extract, Sodium Polyacrylate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Hydrolyzed Corn Starch, Beta-Glucan, Panthenol, Allantoin, Sucrose, 1,2-Hexanediol, Phenoxyethanol, Propylparaben, Butylparaben, Disodium EDTA

Cost: $13.90 

Product Rating: 9/10
I like the unique brush tip, I found that it made it easier for me to coat my top and bottom lashes. The unique formulation also limits smudging but removal was easy. That being said, I noticed that it didn't make any improvements in creating more volume for my lashes.

And that brings me to the end of this review!

Bevy. C: Lumisoft Perfection Foundation Glow SPF 50+ Pa++++ & Lumisoft Perfection Invisible Loose Powder [Sponsored Review]

Back at the start of the year, I was invited to review Bevy. C Pre-makeup Lumiwhite Collection and I'm glad to say that this time round, I've been invited to review their Bevy. C Lumisoft Perfection Foundation and Lumisoft Perfection Invisible Loose Powder too!


Lumisoft Perfection Foundation Glow SPF 50+ Pa++++

This 2-in-1 makeup foundation fluid offers a high sun protection factor of SPF 50+ and PA++++ to shield against UVA/UVB, and is suitable for those with sensitive skin. It is said to be airy and breathable, leaving no white marks. Containing whitening ingredients like vitamin C, glycoside (AA2G) and numerous skin brightening herbal extracts, this foundation aids in instantly creating flawless fair skin, while delivering continuous skin protection even when wearing makeup. 

The smart light-capturing powder in this foundation ensures a perfect balance between providing radiance and concealment. This product allows the skin to appear translucent, prevents dull skin, and ensures seamless coverage all day. 

To Use:

Apply to clean skin. Shake well before use. Pump twice or as per the desired amount for a better coverage. Use your fingertips or applicator to blend foundation onto the skin.

For a flawless look throughout the day, it is recommended to blend BEVY C. Lumiwhite Moist Up Elixir with the foundation.


Light G01- For those with fair skin and who prefer light-shade complexion.
Beige G02- For those with medium skin tone and prefer a natural complexion.

Texture: Cream based, leaves a slight sticky sensation

Smell: Light floral scent

Main Ingredients:
Sodium Citrate, Laminaria Ochroleuca Extract, Hydrolyzed Yeast Protein, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract, Butylene Glycol, Ruscus Aculeatus Root Extract, Centella Asiatica Extract

Cost: $62

Product Rating: 6/10
I really wanted to be a fan of this product but in the end, not only were the 2 shades available (I wished they have more options) completely off for my skin tone... I found that this formulation is quite incompatible to our climate because it leaves my skin feeling slightly sticky and oily upon application so I have to say no, this foundation doesn't leave my skin feeling airy or breathable.

That being said, I like how it is a 2-in-1 foundation that contains high sun protection and I believe this foundation formulation would suit a dry and colder climate than what we have in Singapore.

Lumisoft Perfection Invisible Loose Powder 

Fits perfectly with the skin to diminishes the look of imperfections, and allows the skin to have a silky touch. It helps to regulate shine and moisturize skin. It can be used as the last step of makeup and also after makeup base or sunscreen to even out skin tone.

To Use:

Use after foundation. Apply gently with a small amount onto face using a powder puff or powder brush.


Texture: Velvety powder

Vitamin B6, Nylon-12, Zinc PCA

Cost: $50

Product Rating: 9.5/10
I like how it helps to take away any shine that I have from the use of foundation, BB or even CC creams. I agree that it does leave the skin feeling silky after use. However, I didn't notice any difference to how it would help diminish the look of imperfection or any moisturizing properties it could have on the skin. Overall, I like that it doesn't have talc in it and the ingredients in this product. I would recommend this loose powder.


I saw a video on Bevy. C facebook that I could also mix the Lumisoft Perfection Foundation with their Lumiwhite  Moist Up Elixir with the ratio of 2:1. I found that by doing to, it does help in making the foundation less heavy and sticky after application.

A thing to note when you are mixing it is to note that it takes a little of effort to mix the 2 together. I would use a brush to help me apply this mixture onto my face.

I find that by doing so, it also helps to make it less obvious that the shade isn't really my shade.

And to end things off, I would dust the Lumisoft Perfection Invisible Loose Powder over because it helps to remove the sticky sensation of the foundation and make the makeup last longer.

I use the puff that comes along with the Loose Powder but you can use a brush if you want to, I just don't like it when powder flies around.

Have you tried Bevy. C skincare range or their makeup series before?

Face Inc: Correct Series Acne Treatment, Blemish Essence, Blemish Concentrate [Sponsored Review]

Hi Ladies,
I'm not too sure if this applies to you but whenever I have on makeup for a whole day of work, I'll end up with a few new blemishes and clogged pores after. With the past of having acne, I'm grateful that I've passed that horrible phase but it's still unpleasant to have new breakouts like pimples, white heads and even blackheads every day!

Based on Face Inc, our sebaceous glands have a tendency to go into overdrive producing more sweat and sebum due to our sudden changing temperatures (from cool air-conditioned places to warm outdoors) and environmental pollutants which lead to clogged pores, dreaded pimples and blackheads. But now, with the help from The Face Inc, hot weather does not always have to result in greasy skin and angry red spots.

Developed by dermatologists and French researchers to be used in the second step of The Face Inc's unique Clear, Correct, Rejuvenate and Protect four-step skincare system, the brand's three-step Blemish Control system - Acne Treatment, Blemish Essence and Blemish Concentrate- works in perfect synergy to treat pimples and acnes, clear pores and control sebum production to keep blemishes at bay, even in sweltering weather conditions.

More than just skincare products, The Face Inc's formulations contain a higher concentration of active ingredients than over-the-counter items and are created to deliver a myriad of benefits in a streamlined four-step skincare ritual of Clear, Correct, Rejuvenate and Protect. Formulated to complement one another to deliver the best results, each product category in the brand's four-step routine is colour-coded and clearly labelled with Roman numerals from one to four, so customers know exactly the sequence of usage for the optimal skincare experience.

To assist customers in selecting the best skin care regime, the dermatologists at The Face Inc have developed a detailed online questionnaire, personified by a virtual Dr. Rei. Through a structured series of questions aided by pictures, the intelligent online service analyses individual skin condition and precisely customises a range of products specific to the skin concerns of the customer, taking away any guesswork and the need to self-prescribe.

Here's my analysis:

Your skin is generally healthy. Because of some active oil glands, your pores tend to clog easily. You are recommended to take preventive measures to avoid skin problems and help cure existing issues. Vibrant skin with a high metabolism and rapid cell growth. Your lifestyle can determine your skin condition.

Your skin needs help to stop fatty section, calming the overactive oil glands and management of whiteheads, blackheads and breakout. There is no necessity for diet restrictions but managing stress is key. Minimal use of makeup is recommended. Oil secreted from hair follicles also contribute to breakouts so try to keep hair away from the face. Avoid picking pimples to minimise scarring.

About 10% of our population suffers from hereditary hyperpigmentation. The common cause of it is the abnormal production of melanin (dark pigment). However, melanin is not all bad as it is responsible for the dark (black) colour of hair, eyelashes and eyes. Thus, do not cut off melanin production completely but manage its level. Eat foods and fruits rich in Vitamin C and glutathione as they inhibit the overproduction of melanin. Apply sunblock daily.


Acne Treatment

A spot treatment serum that quickly and effectively dries up blemishes. Rich in Tea Tree Oil, an essential oil well-known for its antimicrobial properties, the serum immediately soothes and provides overnight relief for inflammation and acne papules, dramatically reducing redness.

To Use:
Shake before use, apply a thin layer evenly over the affected area.

Texture: Clear thick serum that leaves a slight sticky layer

 scent of Tea Tree Oil

Water, Glycerin, Propylene Glycol, Allantoin,
Chrysanthemum Indicum Flower Extract, Toccopheryl Acetate, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Salicylic Acid, Lactic Acid, Panthenol, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Xanthan Gum, Tea Tree Oil Leaf Oil, Licorice Root Extract

Cost: $58 for 17ml

Product Rating: 8/10
Out of all 3 products, this Acne treatment showed the most obvious results after use with a reduction in redness and a reduction in the blemishes that occurs around my troubled areas.

That being said, this has the strongest scent of the Tea Tree Oil content out of all the products, so it might be something you may want to consider if you don't like the smell of it.

I find that it does leave a slightly sticky sensation on the skin after use and it would take a while for it to be completely dry. Personally, this isn't anything negative for me because I took advantage of that slight stickiness to layer on my powder foundation.

Blemish Essence

This Blemish Essence is formulated to complement the former by clearing pores to prevent future breakouts, and reduce and prevent the appearance of comedones (blackheads and whiteheads). In addition to antiseptic Tea Tree Oil, the Essence also contains Green Tea Extract, derived from the leaves of Camellia sinensis. Naturally rich in antioxidants with a cell-protecting function, Green Tea Extract is also anti-inflammatory. For the best results, gently apply a thin layer of the clear Essence after treating blemishes over clogged pores, oily T-zone and affected areas.

To Use:
Shake before use, apply a thin layer evenly over the affected area.

Texture: Clear light essence

Smell: Scent of Tea Tree Oil

Water, Glycerin, Propylene Glycol,

Cost: $58 for 38ml

Product Rating: 5/10
I couldn't observe much improvement after use, I was still getting new breakouts after each day. The only thing I noticed was that my skin was less oily after use.

Blemish Concentrate

This works deeply to control the production of sebum so that pores stay clean and clear. In addition to Tea Tree Oil, the essence contains Zinc PCA, a compound of the natural essential mineral that has been shown to be highly effective in regulating active sebaceous glands and controlling the occurrence of comedones. In addition, Zinc PCA also moisturises and softens skin. The Blemish Concentrate also contains Chrysanthemum Flower and Jojoba Seed Oil Extracts, which are both anti-inflammatory agents, to provide an extra soothing effect for people with very oily and irritated skin. Regular use of the Blemish Concentrate will result in less oily and clearer skin.

To Use:
Shake before use, apply a thin layer evenly over the affected area.

Texture: Thick gel-like concentrate that leaves a velvety layer before drying off non-sticky

Smell: Scent of Tea Tree Oil

Water, Glycerin, PEG-4 Olivate, Ethoxydiglycol, Licorice Root Extract, Chrysanthemum Indicum Flower Extract, Polyacrylamide, C13-14 Isoparaffin, Laureth-7, Jojoba Seed Oil, Toccopheryl Acetate, Phenoxyethanol, Lactic Acid, Calamine, Panthenol, Zinc PCA, Tea Tree Leaf Oil, Caprylyl Glycol

Cost: $58 for 30ml

Product Rating: 6/10
I didn't notice much difference with this product too, I was still getting new breakouts but there is a reduction in sebum product with this more so than the Blemish Essence. I also like how it dries off leaving my skin feeling softer and smoother after use.

Exuviance: Triple Microdermabrasion Face Polish & Bionic Oxygen Facial Masque [Sponsored Review]

I'm back with another skincare product review, and this time around, I'm reviewing a brand that I've never heard of before. Exuviance is a brand under NeoAsia that has been the key player in AHA/PHA skincare technology, and has been dedicated to the sales, marketing and distribution of skin care, medical aesthetic equipment and medical device products to the medical community and consumers.

I decided to agree to their review request because I am intrigued by the simple fact that their Tiple Microdermabrasion Face Polish is free of plastic polyethylene beads and their Bionic Oxygen Facial Masque sounds interesting!

So without further ado, here's my verdict:

 Triple Microdermabrasion Face Polish

The latest anti-aging breakthrough that incorporates a triple action approach to skin renewal in a single, yet powerful treatment with a unique blend of physical, chemical and enzyme rejuvenators. With just one application, this intensive exfoliating treatment delivers instant skin resurfacing.

With pure professional grade crystals, Papaya Enzyme and Glycolic Acid, this face polish helps to dissolve impurities that contribute to congested pores, loosen dead skin cells/ dull and dry patches, polishing skin to a gorgeous silky softness and glow. 

With consistent exfoliation, once or twice a week, your skin will be clearer, brighter with reduced appearance of pores and dark spots.

To Use:

Once or twice a week, apply a thin even layer to a clean wet face, lightly massaging in a circular motion for 30 seconds, avoiding eye area. Do not scrub. Leave on for up to 2 minutes (up to 1 minute for sensitive skin). Thoroughly rinse with warm water and gently pat dry. Follow with an Exuviance serum and moisturizer.

Texture: Contains tiny beads with a slightly creamy texture that turns milky when applied onto wet skin
Can you spot the crystal beads?

Smell: Fruity scent

  • Professional Grade Crystals smooth skin
  • Glycolic Acid and Papaya Enzyme help dissolve impurities, loosen dead skin cells
  • Polishes skin to a gorgeous, silky softness for a brighter complexion with a reduced appearance of pores and dark spots
  • Does not contain plastic polyethylene beads, which are harmful to the environment

Aqua (Water), Glycolic Acid, Alumina, Glycerin, Hydrogenated Polydecene, Isononyl Isononanoate, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Glyceryl Stearate, Ammonium Hydroxide, Arginine, Butylene Glycol, Stearyl Alcohol, Polyacrylate-1 Crosspolymer, PEG-100 Stearate, Lactobionic Acid, Papain, Cetyl Alcohol, Hydroxypropyl Starch Phosphate, PEG-75 Stearate, Dehydroxanthan Gum, Ceteth-20, Steareth-20, Carbomer, Algin, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Chlorphenesin, Parfum (Fragrance), CI 19140 (Yellow 5), CI 14700 (Red 4).

Cost: $120.90

Product Rating: 7.5 /10

First off, I really like that it doesn't contain any plastic beads, and based on the ingredient list, alumina is what the professional grade crystals are made of. On the general whole, the ingredients used are on the safe side with a caution to people with sensitive skin. It does have a slight stinging sensation upon application.

Personally, I did notice that it helps to even out my skin tone after my time at Tioman... because I had a suntan mark of my scuba mask and after 2 weeks of usage, I noted that the tan lines are gone. I didn't really note much difference or improvement to the size of my pores or the reduction of tiny blemishes on my face.

Bionic Oxygen Facial Masque 

This mask contains a triple oxygenating blend of specialized ingredients that carry and deliver oxygen into the skin, which helps to support essential cellular energy and optimize collagen in our skin. 

Upon application, the product forms a lightly foaming gel that releases oxygen, delivering a unique sensory experience as the oxygenating process induces a light tingle and forms a creamy foam on the surface of the skin. After 5-10 minutes the foam begins to break down and the face can be gently rinsed and patted dry. The formula contains our patented anti-aging bionic acid/PHA blend along with a conditioning polymer that adds a soft conditioned touch to the skin and a polysaccharide known for its hydrating and film forming properties, making it ideal for use post-peel or post-polish, such as the Exuviance Triple Microdermabrasion Face Polish. 

A single use of the Bionic Oxygen Facial envelops the skin in a delightful oxygenating experience, revealing skin that looks and feels revitalized, refreshed, transformed. Bionic Oxygen Facial is an ideal step following an Exuviance Peel or whenever skin needs a restorative boost of radiance. 

To Use:

Massage a generous, even layer on clean, damp skin. Wait five minutes, allowing a thick oxygenating froth to form and then disappear. Rinse skin and apply an Exuviance treatment or moisturizer. Use at least 3-4 times a week; ideal following use of an Exuviance Triple Microdermabrasion Face Polish. Daily use of a sunscreen is recommended as part of a healthy skin care regimen.

Texture: Gel-like that foams up and disappears after awhile

Smell: Hmm... I have difficulty identifying the smell of this. It has a common skincare scent that leans towards the floral side.

  • Detoxifies and eliminates aging dullness
  • Stimulates vital cell energy
  • Provides essential support for optimal collagen levels
  • PHA/Bionic Blend adds extra youth-promoting benefits to restore radiance and suppleness
  • A non-irritating and a non-sensitizing formulation that is both Paraben-Free and Fragrance-Free.

Aqua (Water), Perfluorohexane, Gluconolactone, Glycerin, Propylene Glycol, Dimethicone PEG-7 Phosphate, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, PPG-5-Ceteth-20, Polysorbate 20, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Biosaccharide Gum-1, Lactobionic Acid, Coco-Glucoside, Perfluorodecalin, Perfluoromethylcyclopentane, Isononyl Isononanoate, Ethylhexyl Isononanoate, Butylene Glycol, Polyhydroxystearic Acid, Ammonium Hydroxide, Sodium Cocamidopropyl PG-Dimonium Chloride Phosphate, Polyquaternium-10, Carrageenan, Disodium EDTA, Sorbitan Isostearate, Polysorbate 60, Xanthan Gum, Caprylyl Glycol, Methyldihydrojasmonate, Hexyl Salicylate, Benzyl Acetate, Cyclamen Aldehyde, 2,6-Dimethyl-7-Octen-2-ol, Juniperus Mexicana Oil, Heliotropine, 3-Hexenol, Methyl Benzodioxepinone, 2,4-Dimethyl-3-Cyclohexene Carboxaldehyde, Chlorphenesin, Phenoxyethanol, CI 60730 (Ext. Violet 2), CI 42090 (Blue 1).

Cost: $139.10

Product Rating: 7.5/10

This product is quite fun to use, the bubbles create a tickling sensation on the skin as it foams and pops. I have to agree that it does leave my skin feeling more hydrated after use and I like that about this product. However, I didn't notice any anti-aging difference to how my skin looked after using, in regards to fine lines... The only thing I noticed after use with the face polish was that my skin got even out and fairer... so that's good I guess!
Left: After the use of both products, fairer and more plumped

Swish Swimming: Mermaiding with Mahina Mermaid Merfin

Hi, my awesome merfolks and peeps! I'm back with a mermaid related post once again! This time round, I'll be touching on my mermaiding journey so far and this interesting monofin I recently got my feet into.

If you have been following me on Instagram, you would know that I've been to Tioman recently with my fellow mersisters to hone our mermaid skills by learning freediving! We wanted to improve our breath hold for mermaiding and lots of the experienced mermaids advised us on learning freediving for it. And just to clarify, freediving is a form of underwater diving that relies on divers' ability to hold their breath until resurfacing rather than on the use of a breathing apparatus such as scuba gear. 

It is really interesting because it requires lots of mind over matter moments to pass through that urge to breathe before the sensation gets comfortable or in my case, the need to breath is not on my mind. Diving down 16 metres in a single breath was also very exciting and it helped me in understanding the fundamentals of how to dive deep for my future snorkelling experience without the discomfort in my ear and trouble I was facing with my breath hold. That being said, my breath hold is about 2 minutes max so I will need to keep working on it to improve.

Whatever time we had, we spent it by the beach or in the open waters and on the day when our class was later in the day, we rented a paddle board and headed out to be a mermaid!

For this trip out into the sea, I brought along my Mahina Mermaid MerFin! I was introduced to this unique product from my fellow mersisters and on thing led to another and I was talking to the Singapore distributor about it! Made with recycled rubber, Mahina Mermaid Merfins are one of the first eco-friendly/recycled fins produced.

I love how the MerFin moves underwater and how easy it is to carry around. Made with a single model, the Merfin is easy to wear and safe to use because with a quick flick of the ankle strap and the legs are free. I think this is great for beginners or inexperienced merfolks!

A few things to take note before you decide on being a mermaid:

1) You must be able to tread water and also be comfortable floating on the water surface
Floating helps in conserving energy and in gaining back the energy to swim.

2) You must be able to swim
I think this is a given. Haha

3) Never do it alone, always swim with a group of people and have them know that you will be mermaiding.
This is to create a safe and secure environment to swim in, so that if you need any help, there is one available.

The Secret Life of Pets: kids’ latest movie in Singapore, from September!

Latest movies in Singapore cinemas reveal what pets get up to when they’re home alone

If you’re after a good belly laugh movie that appeals to both parents and children, you can’t go past the latest movie, The Secret Life of Pets, which is released on the 1st of September. Featuring the voices of some of the finest comedians working today, and put together by the team that created the hilarious Despicable Me movies, it lets us in on what goes on with our pets after we’ve headed off to work for the day. And it’s not what you’d expect. We discover they’re more like humans than you’d probably expect.

Latest movies secret life of pets

The Secret Life of Pets: director

Director Chris Renaud has done an excellent job of taking a very simple premise – what happens when a pet’s perfectly idyllic life is thrown into chaos by an outsider – and creating a multi-layered, animated romp that throws all our pre-conceived notions about our pets straight out the window. Quite literally, in some cases.

Voices and characters

Louis C.K, is the voice of Max, a terrier who is living the perfect life in New York City. All he wants to do is sit by the door all day and wait for his owner, Katie, to return and make his life complete. One day, however, she returns with Duke, an enormous, hairy stray she picked up at the pound, and Max’s idyllic life is immediately turned upside down. Not long after that they’re lost and alone in the streets of the city and having to cope with adversaries such as a gang of deliciously nasty feral cats, a psychopathic white rabbit, sea monkeys with identity crises, pigs, birds, snakes and every other type of pet you could possibly hope to imagine.


Max and Duke have to adapt to all the crazy situations around them in order to get back to Katie and the lives they loved, and how they go about this is both hilarious and thought provoking. After watching it, you’ll never really be able to look at your pets again without wondering what it is they’re thinking. And though the movie may be jam-packed with everything from slapstick through to slightly questionable toilet humour, it does have an underlying message about how we treat our pets. ‘They say they love us, then they throw us out’ one irate character exclaims. So if you’re after a couple of hours of sheer entertainment for the kids that won’t have you tearing your hair out at the inanity of it all, take them along for some time with The Secret Life of Pets. And afterwards, don’t be tempted to pop by the animal shelter and grab a couple of likely looking strays. The inclination to do so will pass, I assure you.
