Comments Off on The Finalists
9 May 2010
Today is the day of our final, which was being held at Jurong Point Level 1. We started the day at 10:00 hr with our hairstyling at Jeric located at Ion Orchard B4-48/49.
While waiting for Felicia Liew to finish her hairstyling (as seen in the photo below)…Daphne and I started with our photo taking. How do you like my new hairdo?
Well, thanks to my hairstylist.
Finally, all 3 of us are done with our hairdo and it’s time to take a shot of the “new” look!
Next, we traveled to our next destination….Jurong Point for Lynn to inspect our makeup and touch up if necessary before the event.
While waiting, I changed into the dress sponsored by Yen Arthur and waited for the other contestants to arrive.
Following are the photos taken before the final begin.
You must be wondering if we are missing someone in our photographs…yes, you are right! We are missing Faridah Wu who couldn’t make it to the final as she was down with food poisoning. Faridah, we missed you at the final and hope you will have a speedy recovery!
Finally it’s end of the Final and time to announce the winners.
Congratulations to Felicia Liew who is the winner for Face Category!
Whereas for Body Category, it was awarded to Iris Chua!
The final and last award, Best Blogger Award went to Iris Chua!
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the management & staffs of SPH-OMY, CITISPA and Shine Studio for giving me this opportunity to create this makeover for me. Even though the 8 weeks of slimming journey wasn’t an easy one as it required alot of determination, perseverance and motivation from family and friends to arrive the “new’ me. I must say that the proven result is the best certification…my usual dress size used to be size 10 and NOW I am wearing size 4!
I would also like to thank the sponsors, Yen Arthur and Jeric Salon for sponsoring our dresses and hairstyling to give us a beautiful final!
A Very Special Thanks to CITISPA Hougang Mall who had taken special care of me throughout my 8 weeks of treatments and Mr Greg Teo who had taken time to conduct RF treatments for me at CITISPA Derma Care Clinic.
Last but not least, I sincerely would like to thank you all those who had supported my blogs throughout my slimming journey. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
To All Mothers….Hope You Had An Enjoyable Happy Mother’s Day!
It is now 1 day before the finals, I’ve learnt a lot of new things…
1. I’ve made good friends
2. That RF machine ROCKS!!!
3. I weighed 68kg at the start of the auditions… now I’m 60kg thou I’m not at the weight I would love to be… 50kg … but at least I’m in the healthy BMI range and do not look sickly stick thin
4. I’ve lost 1kg per week… that’s healthy, my weight will not re bounce and moderation is the key to life
5. perseverance and determination is a key factor to losing more fats
I would like to take a moment to thank these people who were instrumental figures during my journey:
all the staff of CITISPA,
everyone whom I might have forgotten to mention
YOU for taking the time to read this.
We had the final Filming at SYMPHONY @ Hougang Mall at 10am.
I’m glad to meet all the contestants again and we had fun.
De-Shu was showing Shenny how to pose for the camera and his actions were hilarious and left us giggling away.
While waiting for out turn to film, Felicia gave all of us back massages,
we learned a new yoga pose from Lynn (see I learn new things every time I meet her) and chatted away happily till our turn was up.
I’m truly honored and fortunate to have known this bunch of pretty and colourful girls whom I hope to keep in contact for life.
Jia You everyone.
We had our fitting at Yen’s Studio by Arthur Yen @ Central.
I’m glad after weeks of treatments; I can fit into a size 8 instead of the usual size 10 or 12
After careful consideration, Lynn Ang (Managing Director of CITISPA) picked a cute A-Line dress for me to wear for the finals. Every time I meet Lynn, I learn something new and today I’ve learnt that my body shape suits A-Line flowing dresses. How cool is that.
The 6 of us were like “Sex in the City” girls, we laughed and joked with each other during the entire fitting. I’m so glad to know them.
I’m totally excited and can’t wait for the finals at Jurong Point this Sunday. Hope to see you there.
My treatments could be a little slow perhaps as I may have stubborn fats everywhere. Thou a little demoralizing, I know if I preserve it will be rewarding.
The staff of CITISPA have been polite, encouraging, ready to offer advice and a listening ear to my woes.
There is one treatment that I simply have to rave about.
It is the RF treatment, within a week I saw the results and that has encouraged me further and not to give up.
The RF machine is simply wonderful and “melts” away the inner layers of fat. Thou it’s a little warm it is still bearable.
The machine is the only one in Singapore at the moment and only professionals that have been trained and certified can administer the treatment.
For my treatment, it was Gerald Teo (CEO of CITISPA).
It certainly helped that Gerald Teo was nice and friendly and chatted about current events to take my mind of the sweltering heat.
After the treatment, all I saw was a patch of redness on my tummy, it subsided a few minutes later and all I felt was a slightly sore feeling for a few days. But low and behold I could see that my tummy has indeed shrunk.
It is indeed a fantastic machine!
