3rd IPL Session at Musee Platinum Tokyo (Brazilian Session)

As promised, I'll share my 3rd IPL Session at Musee Platinum Tokyo which includes an additional IPL for down under here.

The whole process took about 1 hour 15 mins to complete. Hence, it's important to book your appointment in advance and ensure you're not in a rush on that day.

Anyway, the therapist (Mei Ling) that attended to me was friendly and professional. I was asked to change into the paper panties and the robe below before starting the IPL down under. It's for easy access. ;)

I was told that we don't have to shave whatsoever before the treatment as they'll do it for us. But I think it may help if you trim it short so that it's easier for them to shave. 

After putting on the protective glasses, I was given additional towel to cover my eyes. It helped with the embarrassment because I was like an ostrich with the head in the sand. The treatment then begins with the paper panties being cut open. It was awkward for me to have a stranger being so close to my privates and I found the shaving to be quite ticklish.

The whole time, the therapist was reassuring and checked to see if I felt ok. There's altogether 5 small parts if you want to have IPL done down under. 
The only tedious part (more so for the therapist) was the shaving as it was done meticulously and took more than half an hour to complete. As for the IPL process, it was very fast and quite painless as usual.

After the cold gel application, I got my first IPL zap. It felt like a small shock but I think it was due to my nervousness. The rest of the zaps felt almost painless like the slight sensation you'll feel for underarms IPL. Just let the therapists know if you're uncomfortable and they will adjust the IPL intensity.

Cold towels will be given after the treatment just like for the underarms. 

And yeah, I'll be going back for more. I might just get use to the embarrassment after a few more times.

Super Yummy Chicken Rice Balls in Malacca From Trip Up North

I just got back from my trip up north. It was another round of feasting. On our way back from KL, bf and I decided to drop by Malacca to take a look.

We heard about the yummy chicken rice there and wanted to try it of course. And it exceeded our expectation! But it's only the chicken rice that was nice and not the chicken.

The rice come in golf ball sizes of 5pcs in a plate.

To locate this store, just go to the roundabout with many famous landmarks. And this simple and authentic looking store is tucked away at the side of a building. It's facing a big store that sells lots of local snacks for tourist, at one end of Jonker Street.

We have a choice of either half a chicken or breast meat. We chose breast meat for not wanting to overeat after gaining a few kilos from this trip. And the meat was dry, dry and very dry! 

But the bite size rice balls were yummy!! They were moist, soft and full of flavour. I'm sure I would have eaten it on its own even if the chicken meat was sold out, and I am not even a carbo fan.

You can check out this blog for clearer pics. There's many chicken rice stores there but this had the longest queue. We deduced that it must good. And we also realised that the queue was kinda artificially created. Nonetheless, we had a good meal. Do make sure you don't end up in the wrong store.

Well, Malacca is not my cup of tea. A small colonial town that's too touristy. We stayed for an hour or so, grabbed some snacks for our families and got going.

But not before I got myself this pretty hat for only 5 ringgit!
