Parents Will Love Gu Ma Jia’s!

What kind of dishes do your parents like? My parents, being traditional chinese love their chinese dishes. For special occasions family dinners we will usually order stir fry dishes or go to chinese restaurants. Writing this blog post reminds me that I should bring them down to Gu Ma Jia’s, my sister and I both agree that they will love the dishes there.

Gu Ma Jia Blogger Review Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista_0013 Let’s just dive straight into the dishes we had from Gu Ma Jia’s food tasting! 🙂
Gu Ma Jia Blogger Review Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista_0000We started the dinner with Gu Ma Jia’s Vinegar Enzyme drink.
Gu Ma Jia Blogger Review Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista_0001We had Gu Ma Jia’s Signature Beancurd, Crispy on the outside and soft inside, with a tasty dipping sauce.
Gu Ma Jia Blogger Review Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista_0002Kyoto Pork Ribs – a feast for the eyes as well with the fire show!

Anna Sui Romantica ReviewIf fairytales were flowers, they will smell like Anna Sui Romantica fragrance – charming, fresh & fabulous~ I love everything about the fragrance, the sweet mesmerizing floral fruit scent, to it’s feminine & girly intricately designed packaging with gold floral details.

Soon to be followed by Rose de Mai, Osmanthus Absolute, Jasmine Petals, and Orange Blossom, the romance builds to a crescendo, awakening a deeper sensuality. Water Lily and Peony Blossom add a touch of whimsy and freshness to the heart.

And then it settles with White Ceylon Cedarwood, Sheer Amber, Indonesian Sandalwood, and Creamy Musk.

Anna Sui Romantica 30ml: $68
Anna Sui Romantica 50ml: $93
Anna Sui Romantica 75ml: $119

Dessert Art with Pastry Chef Jasmin at Stellar at 1-Altitude

Hi Loves!

A while back, I had the chance to have my hand in dessert art making under the demonstration and teaching of pastry chef Jasmin at Stellar at 1 Altitude located at One Raffles Place. It was such a pleasure and enjoyable experience to make the beautiful and delicious desserts and to be able to taste them later! We had fun making or designing rather, a platter of desserts, two of which featuring Stellar’s best loved desserts Creme Brulee and Fireball – these are sooo good. The Creme Brulee is coated with a layer of crispy caramel and is soft inside. The Fireball is presented with a coat of fire and is a ball of chocolate goodness!  Check out the photos of the demonstration followed by our own creations below~

Relaxing Weekend Getaway at ParkRoyal On Pickering

Hi Loves!

Recently I had the pleasure to indulge in a staycation at ParkRoyal  on Pickering, Singapore’s first hotel in a garden. The entire stay passed like a breeze, thanks to the great service, wonderful lush atmosphere and lovely food and drinks served. My bestie Fion and I stayed at the Orchid Club Deluxe Room and enjoyed access to the Orchid Club Lounge which provides afternoon tea, cocktail and breakfast. I fell in love with the hotel’s architecture which integrates organic lines and greenery so seamlessly. All in all, I definitely recommend this place as a weekend getaway for locals and a hotel of choice for foreigners!

Indulge in Caffe B’s Delicious Yet Affordable Set Lunch @ MBS

 

Hi Loves!

A while back I feasted at Caffe B’s at Marina Bay Sands and today I’d like to share about this gem with you! 😉

Caffe B Enabalista Blog Review 014


Caffe B Enabalista Blog Review 013

Located at Marina Bay Sands #B1-15/01-83, Caffe B is a mixed Japanese and Western fusion restaurant and bar. It’s a place that’s definitely under the radar despite its lovely ambience and food. So I recommend you checking it out the next time you’re visiting MBS.  

Caffe B Enabalista Blog Review 001

The amazing thing about their Set Lunch is that it’s so affordably priced at $25+ despite the posh location and delicious food. It’s a deal you definitely want to take advantage of! Diners get to pick one each; between 2 starters, from 4 main courses and dessert comes in only 1 item. For the food tasting we got to try all of the items on the menu! Also, as it’s a media tasting, we got tasting portions for the main course (else we could not possibly try every dish) so if you’re visiting, be assured that the portions are much bigger than what you see here! 🙂Caffe B Enabalista Blog Review 002 Caffe B Enabalista Blog Review 003

The interior decor reminds me of classical roman mixed with modern western design.Caffe B Enabalista Blog Review 004

Free flow bread throughout the meal.

Potato and Prosciutto Salad
Potato and Prosciutto Ham topped with Bonito flakes, served with Mesculin tossed in Miso Vinaigrette. The potato is served soft and the dish is a great balance of savoury delight.

Tuna Sake Tataki
Quick seared Tuna with Sake, served with Hash Browns, Tomato Florentine and Red PestoCaffe B Enabalista Blog Review 008

Beef Verde
Black Angus Beef drizzled with Sauce Verde, side by Edamame and Potatoes with Parsley – this dish is yummilicious! The beef was tender and juicy, highly recommended. 🙂

Caffe B Enabalista Blog Review 010

Vegetarian Pasta Alla Funggi
Spaghetti cooked Al Dente in Wild Mushroom Cream Sauce. 

Caffe B Enabalista Blog Review 009

Chicken Lasagne Parmegiano
Spinach Pasta layered with Chicken, Shitake and Eggplants covered in Bechamel Sauce, Pomodoro and Mozzarella – this lasagne is a perfect mix of pasta, ingredients and sauce, another excellent main dish that I’d recommend!

Caffe B Enabalista Blog Review 011

For desserts, we ended with Trio Profiteroles, filled with Matcha, Red Bean and Chocolate Cream which is a nice touch that reminds us of Caffe B’s Japanese influence.

Now you know where to bring your business associates for your next lunch meeting! 😉

Caffe B now has a second set lunch menu for 2015, contact them at bar@caffeb.com.sg or 6222 2329. Be sure to like them on Facebook here for news and promotions!

Delicious Meals Without The Wait

Hi Loves!

Today I’m very excited to be sharing about Food Panda~!

Food Panda Hui Wei Takeaway Blogger Review Enabalista SS 003

In case you haven’t heard or tried Food Panda before, you’ll be glad to know about them now! Food Panda is an awesome online/mobile service where you can order from an array of restaurants that provide delivery to your local address based on your postcode.

You can order to your home, office, friend’s home or wherever life/work takes you to, as long as the location is recognised and food is deliverable there (don’t blame me if your location is too obscure! :p).

Food Panda Hui Wei Takeaway Blogger Review Enabalista SS 001

Based on the postcode you input, Food Panda will show you the list of restaurants nearby which will deliver to your choice of location. From my place, there’s a whole list of 42 restaurants, impressive!

Food Panda Hui Wei Takeaway Blogger Review Enabalista SS 002

And the best part is, you can order in advance so your meal is delivered during your meal time! Awesome isn’t it?

I decided on Hui Wei, which is a Tze-Char (stir fried) place which has 3.5stars based on 143 ratings.  Thanks to my sister Jia Hui for doing her research (I outsourced this task to her, hehe) and she decided on these few delicious dishes!

Thai Style Honey Chicken – this is totally yums. Thumbs up!Food Panda Hui Wei Takeaway Blogger Review Enabalista 003

Mei Ren Yu (Mermaid) which is fried eggplant and it’s seriously addictive. This is a highly raved dish and it did not disappoint. Highly recommended too. Food Panda Hui Wei Takeaway Blogger Review Enabalista SS 001I recommend Food Panda service for your next family or friend’s party or gathering! With this, you can save time on preparing your meal, you can even get your guests to look through the menu and order dishes to suit their liking and enjoy the meal in the comfort of your own home / private location~ ! The only downside is the minimum $50 order (for Hui Wei) for delivery, however if you’re ordering for a party of 8 or more, this won’t be an issue. 😉

Thank you Food Panda for making this review possible!

Feast Well For Chinese New Year 2015

Hi Loves!

Chinese New Year is coming right up this Thursday and I’ve got a few great food & drinks ideas for you & your family in this post! 😉

1. Enjoy Soup Spoon’s Healthy Collagen Hot Pot at the comfort of your own home!

Chinese New Year calls for family reunion dinners… and we’re all so busy with work that dinner preparation and cooking can be quite demanding, right? To meet the needs of busy customers like us, the thoughtful Soup Spoon founder Anna has created the Collagen Hot Pot set which you can conveniently order from online here, arrange which day you want to pick up and all you need is just a hot pot and your love ones to enjoy dinner with! Just a heads up that the entire bag is about 10kg, so be sure to have someone strong to carry with you and you might want to take cab or have a car ride home with the heavy bag. 😉 The Collagen Hotpot come in two sizes, Deluxe for 4 pax ($98) or Premium for 6 pax ($128), the latter which includes Whole Cordyceps Chicken, Collagen Chicken Stock, Clear Chicken Stock, Kimchi Stock, (stocks in 1.5L each) Assorted Seafood & Veg, 3 dipping sauces (Soya, Garlic & Chilli) & Osmanthus Jelly! I foresee that this is gonna be a hot seller as it makes for an ideal, fuss free yet sumptuous CNY gathering meal. This Collagen Hot Pot set is only available for takeaway. Want to know more about the benefits of Collagen for your body and skin? Check out their very helpful & informative site here.

I had the sweet privilege to enjoy this yummy Collagen Hot Pot twice, the first time with a few bloggers at the Soup Spoon Suntec store and the second time, I enjoyed it with my family… It was such a delight to enjoy the yummy collagen soup base which was thick and yummy, and sweet with all the vegetables and cordyceps chicken! I definitely think that this Collagen Hot Pot is super value for money. It’s meant for 5-6 persons but if you prepare additional rice/noodles, soup stock and ingredients, you can definitely host up to 10 people, or have 2 rounds of dinner with the recommended 5-6pax.

2. Enjoy Yu Pin Zhen Bird’s Nest at home

Bird’s Nest is widely known to be an oriental delicacy which boosts many health benefits; “As it is rich in protein, collagen and other nutrients and minerals, the consumption of bird’s nest is scientifically proven to have several health benefits, such as stimulating the regeneration of cells, strengthening our immune and respiratory system, and improving the performance of our internal organs. When consumed by pregnant women, it could also help to strengthen the body of the mother and foetus as well as speed up the post-birth recovery process. Besides that, bird’s nest is known for its beauty benefits that help women to rejuvenate and maintain smooth, radiant and youthful complexion.” credits here. However, it’s not easily affordable because a lot of work goes into rearing the sparrows’ for their nest, obtaining their nest and then cleaning it effectively. Thanks to our local brand Yu Pin Zhen who has invested in cleaning technologies for pure birds nest, they have also conceptualized the idea of delivering cooked birds’ nest, so you can now order them by the bowls and enjoy it at the comfort of your home! For this CNY, why not surprise your parents and reward them with a bowl of this delicacy? 😉

At the media preview of the Yu Pin Zhen Bird’s Nest, we had the pleasure to enjoy many variations of Birds Nest dishes and I was so wowed by the Chef Simon Lee from Citrus restaurant specially flown in from M’sia to prepare the dishes. The taste of the Yu Pin Zhen birds nest is neither too sweet nor bland, and makes for a great after dinner healthy dessert. Each bowl costs $28 (Free delivery), call 6842 1142 to order. Better hurry if you want to order, ahead of the Public Holidays! 😉

Mad Nest has recently concluded their last exhibition “What She Gave To Me”, a nostalgic exhibition about what Nature has given to us. I had the pleasure to be there to enjoy some fine sushi and the artworks. Located at 378/380 East Coast Road, check them out with your friends for dinner and enjoy drinks at the bar after. Their kitchens are closed for CNY but their bar will be open. For more info., visit their FB page.

4. Indulge with Italian Wines from The Wine Creek

Festive & happy occasions calls for a toast, right? Why not order a dozen of wines from The Wine Creek to celebrate the Chinese New Year with your family? Plus you can always keep them if you can’t finish in one seating. 😉  I recommend the Furlan ($30/btl) if you’re a fan of Proseccos, sweet Italian white wines, like I am. For sweet reds, try Mignanego, I call this the alcoholic Ribena, lol. Turns out, my family and friends also really love the sweet white from Miganego (orange btl below) and they’re both only $15/btl. Free delivery for 1 dozen and above! Call/sms/whatsapp to +65 83186992 (Lionel) for your orders.

How To Plan For a Romantic Date

Hi Loves!

So Sofitel Valentines Day Dinner Blogger Review 001

1. Bond Over Good Food at So Sofitel

I personally believe that good food is essential in a relationship. Everyone needs to eat and humans bond over food. So what better way to express your love for your partner then to bring him/her to a special dinner? So Sofitel’s Resident Culinary Designer Anne-Cecile Degenne impressed both our palate and eyes at the 3 course (pre) Valentines Day Dinner media tasting.  I was surprised with the fresh crab meat paired with the refreshing cucumber and ginger sorbet. I would love to have the sorbet again! The grilled beef tenderloin was excellent too, cooked just nice and tender. While I would usually have trouble chewing on steaks which are cooked too dry & tough, this steak wasn’t an issue at all. We were all impressed with the sharing dessert which came in a decadent chocolate and raspberry combination and of course I couldn’t resist a photo with it, hehe. Visit their site here or call for more information and bookings.

If your partner and you are Spa lovers, why not complete the date with a therapeutic getaway at So SPA by Sofitel’s in Sentosa? With it, you and your sweetheart can enjoy a 2+hours long session with Neem Body Polish, Bath for 2, So Abhyanga Massage at their Private Couple Spa Suite with complimentary champagne & canepe, full Usage of the outdoor spa gardens, mud pool and more at $528++ per couple. This promotion is valid until 28 Feb 2015. You can call & reserve via (65) 6371 1288.

MadAboutSucre Official Opening 001

2. Fall Sweeter In Love with Mad About Sucre Cakes

As a general rule, girls like sweet things; chocolates, ice cream, cakes, oh yes, cakes. There’s just something special about sweet, soft cakes. My friends over at Mad About Sucre have recently opened their cakery at 27 Teo Hong Road (walking distance from Outram MRT) and their cakes are sophisticated and a delight to our palates. I am particularly in love with their Burnt Caramel topped with Himalayan Salt Cake which is soft, sweet and simply amazing. My next favourite is their Passion Fruit Cheese Cake which is sweet, citrusy with a tinge of cheese. Chocolate lovers can find delight in their Red Cherry & Mexican Cocoa Cake as well as their decadent Rum infused Chocolate & Banana Cake. Enjoy a cake and a tea or coffee here, let the sweet tastes of the cake mingle in your mouth and linger on through the night. Or if you’re feeling adventurous, you might also fancy their Lemon & Coconut Tart. Priced at $9.80-$11.80, visit them after your dinner date as they’re open from 12.30-10.30pm, Mondays off.

Delicious Kabe no Ana Mentaiko Pasta

 

Hi Loves!

As you should know by now, I’m a big fan of Japanese pasta. Many months back (ahem), my Kose girlfriends and I went to NEX for some delicious pasta at Kabe no Ana, which is famous for their Mentaiko Pasta – which is one of favourite!!! Just like my recent recommendation of Miam Miam, this is a place that I would go back again and I enjoyed my time and food there with my lovely friends.

Visit them at #B1-80, Nex, 23 Serangoon Central. About $20 per person. 

Do you have a Japanese pasta resto recommendation in Singapore? Let me know!

Yum Yum at Miam Miam Bugis

Hi Loves!

I don’t want to sound like a broken recorder, but I still have so many unpublished photos and material for my blog that it will take me more than 2 months to publish them, (assuming) if I were to diligently update my blog daily. Yeap, that’s material for more than 60 posts. However with my work as a real estate agent, attending current blogger events and not forgetting my obsession with Korean dramas, I don’t have the luxury of time to publish all of the materials, some of which are frankly outdated now, lol! Nonetheless I will be publishing some of the older photos and materials over the course of the next few months, so indulge me! 😛 After I clear off the back log, my plan for this year is to streamline the content for my blog this year, so focus on quality instead of quantity. As fashion blogger Nicole Warne of GaryPepperGirl puts it, “It’s the work that you decline that also defines you.” Beginning from mid last year, I’ve been more intentional in the content that I publish on my blog, and moving along, I will be even more selective.

So for the record, I visited Miam Miam at Bugis Junction#02-14 many months back in May 2014 with blogger friend Clarabel for dinner and even though so many months have passed, looking at these photos remind me that I loved it. The pasta/noodles serving were very generous, thankfully I was hungry (Clarabel is blessed with high metabolism rate, always hungry and eating but still slim!) and we both loved the Molten Lava cake with Vanilla Ice Cream. I haven’t been back since but it’s a place I recommend and would definitely go back. The store is located in the atrium area of level 2 but still provides sufficient ambience with its rustic country decor for a cosy dinner. Ideal for both group and couple dates. They have a French Japanese fusion concept and at $15-$20 person for meals.

Let me know if you’ve dined at Miam Miam and what you enjoy eating there!

Spicy Hot Curry at Marina South Curry House

Hi Loves!

A while back I visited Marina South Curry House for a food tasting session and their red curry chicken and salted egg chicken wing is really the bomb! I also really enjoyed their fish head bee hoon because it was flavourful even though no milk or msg was used – it’s made from Chef Gan’s unique soup stock combination. I shall post up the photos explain with captions. Details for the shop found below. Enjoy this post! P.S. Get ready to be hungry!
Marina South Curry

Marina South Curry House gets its name from the original location where they use to be at Marina South, a place popular for dating for those born in the 70’s and very well known for serving up a mean curry that’s super hot and spicy. Marina South Curry House Blog Review 009

You’ll find TV screens playing segments and photos on display of their food and famous guests, I spot DJ Yasminne and local celebrities.Marina South Curry House Blog Review 012 Marina South Curry House Blog Review 011

Marina South Curry House Blog Review 014

Chef Gan is the head chef of Marina South Curry House who hails from Ipoh and he specializes in Singaporean and Malaysian dishes and he crafts them with passion and culinary dedication!

Now we proceed to the main point of the post, their food!

Marina South Curry House Blog Review 002

Red Curry Chicken – this is so delicious! I usually don’t eat a full bowl of rice, but I found myself eating mouth after mouth with this yummy red curry!$6.90 for one person serving. Highly recommended~~~ Marina South Curry House Blog Review 001

To soothe the tongue and throat from the red curry, enjoy a refreshing buah long long drink at $3.90. Its slightly sour flavour that freshens you up and complements curry dishes very well.

Marina South Curry House Blog Review 004

Another of my top favourite dish, their Salted Egg Chicken Wing, $12.90 which is salty and crispy and oh-so-delicious! I only wished I had this plate all to myself. 😛Marina South Curry House Blog Review 006

Another of their speciality dish as I mentioned above, their Signature Claypot Fish Head Bee Hoon which has no milk yet the texture is still rich and relatively thick. It’s simmered for over 6 hours, the superior broth is flavourful due to Chef;s unique soup stock combination – I really love it. Enjoy it with 2-3persons for $18.90 or single portion at $7.90. 
Marina South Curry House Blog Review 003

One of their signature vegetable dish is Luo Han Chye which has tofu, taupok, mushoom and small bok choy giving plenty of choice and flavour in this dish.
Marina South Curry House Blog Review 005

Or if you prefer your veggies with some kick, consider this long bean and eggplant with curry.
Marina South Curry House Blog Review 007

For desserts, end off with this delightful and authentic Chendol that’s sure to bring a smile to your face, as it did to mine! See:

Pan Pacific’s The Edge 4 Hour Sunday Champagne Brunch Review

Hi Loves!

A few months back, I completed a survey for Expat Living magazine and was kindly gifted a pair of tickets for Pan Pac’s The Edge’s Sunday Champagne brunch. So I invited my sister to come a long with me and it was such an unforgettable meal! We had so much fun indulging in wagyu beef, salmon sashimi, pork sausages, iberco ham and of course an unlimited amount of Veuve Cliquot champagne.  Guests can also order a limited offering of red wine and shiraz as part of the buffet. My personal favourites would be the wagyu beef and fine du claire fresh raw oysters. The buffet spread is very comprehensive to say the least and I would highly recommend this place for fine dining and champagne lovers.  Tickets are at $168++ per pax. There’s a package where 2 guests get a bed, brunch & bliss staycation with a late check out on Sunday at 5pm for $525 for 2. Perfect for a special occasion! For more details and booking you can visit Pan Pac site here.

I would love to go for another free flow champagne brunch again, let me know if you have a place to recommend!

Hot Tomato & Nana’s Green Tea Review

Hi Loves!

I’ve just got back from my BKK trip with my sisters this afternoon, it’s been a great trip and I can’t wait to share about the trip on my blog. 🙂 I’ve got an embarrasingly long list of blogging back log and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I can complete it before the year ends, hahaha! 😛

Quite a while back, the Kose cinderella contest finalists/girls and I met up for dinner at Somerset. At Gina’s suggestion, we had dinner at Hot Tomato at 313 basement and it was my first time at Hot Tomato cafe. I was quite pleasantly surprised with the taste and portion at an affordable price about $12 if my memory is right, as I’ve not heard of any reviews of Hot Tomato and didn’t quite know what to expect. I really enjoyed the mango flavored salmon pasta and would most definitely order it again when I am back. We then headed to Nana’s Green Tea cafe at Orchard Central for desserts and the green tea matcha soft serve did not disappoint and the recommended Green Tea tiramisu was also very soft and delicious. As usual, our meet up was full of jokes & laughter, love spending time with the Kose girlies. 😛

All in all it was a great dinner and meet up. Have you any good dinner and desserts recommendation? Let me know! Wishing you all a great week!

Fun & Food-filling Weekend Trip to Malacca

 

Hi Loves!

A few months back, my secondary school mates and I headed to Muar & Malacca for a weekend road trip and here’s a post of the food places and fun destinations that we’ve been! I personally highly recommend Malacca as a road trip destination with friends because it’s relatively near Singapore, inexpensive, has great food and overall just a perfect & fun weekend getaway destination! 😉 Following this trip, I made another similar trip with my colleagues… Which I suppose I’ll get around to blogging about it in due time. 😛 As you should probably know by now, I take forever and a day to get my blog posts up… I’ve got tons of content and I need to get them up, but man, it’s hard to find time and the mojo to blog with work and activities during the weekend (and I also need time to chill too!). Anyhoos, it’s gonna be a super long blog post with 100+ photos and captions, grab your popcorn and enjoy the read! 🙂

Then we headed to AK Extreme Go Kart & Paintball Arena at Plaza Hang Tuah (Plaza Ocean), Jalan Tun Mahmat, 75300 Melaka, Melaka for Go Kart! We didn’t know they had Paintball as well, but as we didn’t prepare change of clothes, we couldn’t play that. Now that you know, prepare change of clothes for some paintball fun while you’re there! 🙂

For Go Kart we paid RM30/~SGD12 for 10min. It might seem a short period, but it was about 13 laps and doesn’t seem that short a time! Unfortunately the one car I was on kept on stalling, but all my friends didn’t have issues with theirs. Overall, I’d still recommend this place.

At the A Famosa Fortress, which I honestly didn’t read up about before I went, and I’ve been there twice. 😛 In summary, in 1511 the Portuguese arrived, attacked and defeated the armies of the Malacca Sultanate. Then they built this fortress and it changed hands twice thereafter, first to the Dutch, then the British and perhaps an interesting link to Singapore would be found in this line: “The fort was almost totally demolished but for the timely intervention of Sir Stamford Raffles, the founder of modern Singapore, who happened to visit Malacca in 1810. Because of his passion for history, this small gate was spared from destruction.”

Who knew that because of Sir Stamford Raffles’ decision, this fortress would attract to many tourists to Malacca today? 🙂

Then we decided to climb up and across the hill to head to Jonker Street…

I must have mentioned Jonker Street like 2-3 times already, and it is really the highlight of Malacca, in my opinion. It’s best to coincide your visit on a weekend (Fri-Sun & Public Holiday) night, so you get to see the night market starting at 7pm! I’ve actually been there on weekday afternoons but the best experience is definitely one with the night market!!

The entire street starts with San Shu Gong, a famous traditional food snacks shop and basically we started off eating from the Satay Lok Lok food truck parked at the start and eating, and eating, and eating (yes you get my idea) all the way to the end before walking right back. #SingaporeansConfirmPlusChopCanEatMalacca Trip Blog Review and Recommendations 065 Malacca Trip Blog Review and Recommendations 066 Malacca Trip Blog Review and Recommendations 104

I have been to Jonker Street thrice, and I have always bought this refreshing Honey Lime Juice drink from San Shu Gong (the red building in the background in the photo). I recommend this drink if you like something refreshing, or basically love the awesome combination of Honey & Lime like I do!!! <3

The next day on the ride back to Singapore we decided to stop over at:

GPS: 1.490861,103.767779
Hours: Daily 8:00am to 5:00pm

For the record, we were there at 3pm so it was a late lunch and the lunch crowd was dying and the service took really long. 🙁 So it wasn’t a very pleasant experience but the food was undoubtedly good and I will go back again but I think best to be in the morning or during lunch timing. I’m not sure if the service is always that slow (have to wait quite long for them to refill the soup) or it’s because it was quite late so the stock was running low, but hopefully at earlier timings you get better service.

But I think the prices are pretty steep – $9.96 for 6 pieces, $11.95 for 8 pieces. But worth the try! 🙂

TheFaceShop introduces The SMIM Fermentation Concentrate Range @ Cotton ECP

Hi lovelies! <3 <3 <3

A while back I attended TheFaceShop’s blogger launch for The SMIM Fermentation Concentrate Range at Cotton Restaurant at East Coast Park.

As usual, I’ll let the photos do the talking before I review the product! 😉

East Coast Park 1

As I was slightly early for the event, I took a stroll along the East Coast beach.
I KID. The truth is, I was lost and I walked in the wrong direction, so I sorta took a detour before I reached Cotton restaurant. Nonetheless, I learn to enjoy the detour. 😉

And look, what a sweet picture this is, a couple having what seems like dinner. Not a bad view and date I must say. 😉East Coast Park 2 East Coast Park 3 East Coast Park 4

The clouds, the view, the breeze… reminds me of why I enjoy heading to ECP with my friends. 😀Cotton @ ECP

Finally! I found Cotton. Looking pretty cosy even from the outside…SMIM Blogger Event at Cotton ECP Enabalista 111Here’s the view from the area we were seated. It’s really quite a big restaurant, and I heard from Alethia that they serve pretty good brunches! More about the food later. 😉

We were each gifted a bottle of the SMIM Fermentation Total Treatment. 🙂

During the session, we tried using this product and the hand that had this product applied, I could visibly tell and experience that it quickly absorbed the subsequent water sprayed on, while the other hand had the water droplets sitting on the skin. Lol!

More of my review later. 🙂

Now onto dinner at Cotton @ ECP!

This is a very yummy tuna salad.SMIM Blogger Event at Cotton ECP Enabalista 7Roasted chicken and beef. The beef was very tender, I usually don’t fancy beef due to its overly chewy texture but they served it up very well. The mushroom gravy for the chicken was especially yummy.

SMIM Blogger Event at Cotton ECP Enabalista 6

These tiny sized chicken wings are a hot favourite amongst the bloggers. I’m not a big fan of chicken wings, but I know these are perfect for parties! Plus, the chilly sauce is very yummy too. The skin is crispy and the meat isn’t dry. If you’re a chicken wings fan, I recommend this. 🙂

After dinner, we had a cross word search activity! Fastest blogger wins a big pack of TheFaceShop hamper. SMIM Blogger Event at Cotton ECP Enabalista 8

Nope, I didn’t win cause I wasn’t fast enough! LOL.

Thanks to TheFaceShop, I’ve just started using this product after cleansing and before putting any other skincare. The recommendation is to use it with a cotton pad, because the product will remove the dead skin cells and only with the cotton pad can the dead skin cells be picked up. So I’ve used it and I did find the cotton pad just slightly yellower than normal so I reckon the removal of dead skin cells is legit! There is a little sweet scent, not sure how to describe it except for sweet, and it’s texture is much like a toner, very lightweight. The full effect of this product is supposed to take effect in 14 days.

If you’d like to know a more detailed review, you can refer to Sheena’s 14 day beauty diary / journey on CozyCot, where you can also redeem a 2 weeks trial bottle here (which I think is the mini bottle that I also have, see above) you should also check out Sheena’s blog here. 😉

Last but not the least, a promotion specially for my readers!

DessertGuroo, delicious & fun dessert party packs to your doorstep!

Hi!

Are you a jelly dessert lover and wonder where you can order them for parties?

Wonder no longer because today I’ll be reviewing dessert packs from DessertGuroo,
touted to be Singapore’s original online dessert store! ^^

Just in time for my sister’s birthday in March, my family and I got to enjoy delicious desserts
delivered right to our doorstep, thanks to DessertGuroo!

This is their Red Tea Jelly Party Pack
with dollops of Passionfruit Nectar and sprinkle of IQ balls!

The Red Tea Jelly and Passionfruit Nectar are rich in flavors on their own
yet delicious when blended together. I am a fan of IQ balls which are chewy and bouncy. ^^
I also love that these jellies come in individual packs and disposable spoons are provided,
which is perfect for parties as there’s no preparation and cleaning up required!

A box of 12 cups is available on their site here at $17.80.

This is DessertGuroo’s best-selling (they didn’t say so, but I presume so, either that or it will soon be their best-seller :P)
Mangotini dessert pack.

I love how everything is packed and labelled so neatly and clearly,
it made the entire process of putting the dessert together very simple, fun and under 5 minutes.
It took me 3 minutes. 😛
The only extra thing you need to prepare is a bowl of ice.

The entire presentation is beautiful to say the least. The mango jelly linguini is delicious as it is elegant.
My mum said it looks like “kway teow” which is another type of local delicious flat and thin noodles.
You can call it whatever tickles your fancy!
The flavor of the mango puree and peach nectar is rich without being overwhelming
and the mango linguini and crystal pearl jellies are tasty and chewy.

If you’re planning for a party at your place sometime soon and you’ll be having a crowd to please,
look no further and order this. You won’t regret it. 😉

A set that serves up to 10-12 pax is available on their site here at $27.90.

And this, is DessertGuroo’s Lychee Linguine.
The soursop puree is the right touch of sour without being overwhelming (omgoodness I am salivating just talking about it now), the lychee nectar is sweet but when mixed with the ice it becomes like a refreshing dessert juice/drink. My mum and second sister absolutely love this because they like the soursop! The lychee linguine jelly came really packed tight together and required a lot more stirring to loosen compared to the mango linguine. I personally perfer the mangotini dessert. But if you prefer your dessert with a tinge of sour (still sweet, but a little sour) then you will love this. 🙂
A set that serves up to 10-12 pax is available on their site here at $27.90.

for new product updates and cool dessert recipes! 🙂

Thanks to Crystel and DessertGuroo for these tasty desserts for my family and I!

Poulet Affordable French Restaurant @ Vivo City Review

Hi guys!

A while back I was at Poulet restaurant at Vivocity for dinner with my friends.
Check out the photos and my review at the end of it! 😉

Poulet Restaurant Review Enabalista2 Poulet Restaurant Review Enabalista Poulet Restaurant Chicken Review Enabalista

My friends and I shared the Poulet’s popular roasted chicken which is their signature dish.
The chicken was well roasted, has a unique sauce which I can’t put my finger on what special ingredient it includes.
The chicken itself could have scored better, it was neither very juicy or tender, but alright.
I would however, order it again when I’m back.

Poulet Restaurant Granny Apple Review Enabalista

My friend ordered Poulet’s chicken and granny smith sandwich and like it very much.
I am not a fan of sandwiches for dinner (only like them for breakfast)
but I have to say the filling in the sandwich (i tried a little of it) was good.

Poulet Restaurant Mash Potato Review Enabalista

Poulet’s mashed potatoes.Poulet Restaurant Review Mushroom Soup EnabalistaPoulet’s Mushroom soup is very unusual!

It tastes more like smooth butter with a tad of potatoes. HA.

Poulet Restaurant Bread Review Enabalista

The mushroom soup was a smooth blend of wild mushrooms and a little cream.
Definitely for those who like their mushroom soup with a raw-er taste. 😉
The bread comes with the soup isn’t remarkable.

$$$
$10-15/person.

Ambience
Nice and quiet. Good for family and friends gathering.

Address
