EUsis Ep 10: Eusis & Eurail

We purchased a 5day- Italy/France Eurail, consumed only 4 days, from August 22-29, 2011.
We reserved our seats in Paris. Started from Florence, Pisa, Rome, Venice, Milan, Nice, Monte Carlo and Paris.
We heart Eurail. We learned alot, seen a lot, met nice locales who guided and helped us.

Letter to my 20-year old Self

Dear 20-year old Me,

I know that turning 20 is quite a big leap as you're already not a teen. You will be having some changes in your life. In one way or the other, you will get hurt no matter how you avoid the situation. If you get hurt badly, cry it out, cry with a friend, it's more healing, then you move on. Believe that time will heal all those hurts and pain. Just be strong and pray. Don't be afraid to take risks. Don't let your fears hold you back. Dream high. If there's an opportunity grab it as it comes only once. Be excited. Be adventurous. This is the time in your life where you start to experience the real taste of life, the outside world. Be responsible. Learn as much as you can. Laugh hard. Fall in love. Enjoy every moment. Follow you heart and use your head to decide. You'll go a long way.

I'm excited to see your travel adventures. You'll make it happen.:)

25-year old Me

Permed Hair 101

When I decided to get my hair permed, I knew that it will take more time for me to fix my hair every morning. The next problem is, finding the best hair product in the market that will maintain my curls without damaging it . 

After a few days of relentless research on what to get, I finally ended up buying the "Ouidad Expert Curl kit" from Sephora. Bought mine for $57.00. Not bad, I guess.

According to them, this is what it does: 

"The set has everything you need to get healthy, frizz-free curls. Moisture Lock™ Leave-In Conditioner is a lightweight leave-in or rinse-out conditioner for all curl types. Climate Control® Heat & Humidity Gel is a must-have styling aid to tame frizz and fly-aways. Botanical Boost® Moisture Infusing & Refreshing Spray detangles, refreshes, and preserves moisture to prevent frizz and revive shine. The set contains: - 8.5 oz Moisture Lock Leave-In Conditioner - 8.5 oz Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel - 2.5 oz Botanical Boost Moisture Infusing & Refreshing Spray - 6 x hair clips - Step-by-step instructions for styling wavy and curly hair."

I've been using the product for 2 weeks now and I can say that it totally exceeded my expectations. No frizz, no fly-aways, just bouncy hair with shine.:) And yeah it's totally worth-buying. Thanks Ouidad! Will definitely buy this product again. :)

Wanderlust Photo: Door Series

Fascinated with humongous doors and gates during my travel escapades. They all look different but their own unique characteristics make them stand out.. Just like us, humans.

Just Got Permed!

After 20+ years of having a straight hair, I now decided to get my hair permed at Texture Hair Lab in East Coast, and I'm loving it! ;) The stylist recommended perming my hair with ammonia-free perming solution so as not to damage my hair. Took me 2 hours to finish. I didn't quite like his final styling though, but at least it's not dry, for now..

EUsis turns 1.

Time flies so fast. It's been a year since our epic EUrope adventure. Last year, we're at Barcelona, tonight we're at Zsofi's Tapas Bar (well it is in singapore, but at least it's spanish hehe). We celebrated our 1st year anniv as EUsis (europe+sisters), and together with the EUbros reminisced our travel experiences and bloopers over our favorite spanish dishes --- tapas, sangria, and paella. It was indeed a fun night though yet nostalgic.:)
