Best ramen in Peninsular Malaysia.


Let's face it.
The restaurant has gained the public's attention and everyone has been raving about it.
The restaurant I am talking about is nonetheless but
Menya Shi-shi Do.


Queue is expected since everyone loves dining here.
My all-time favourite is the  combo, a spicy curry pork ramen. That's a double flavour! I can't find a way to try other flavours because I am not over it! The soup is so creamy and flavourful, it makes me so happy eating it. You can also top off your delectable bowl of ramen with any topping you fancy~


The soup, prepared with time, love, passion, pride, gives impact to us, the consumers, as we savour the scrumptious bowl of ramen. 
With 13 flavours available, you will surely encounter a few that you love!

Oh, by the way,
Menya Shi-shi Do has also launched a new menu recently, known as the Chirashi Tsukemen. It is available only during the weekend~ It comes in two flavours, which are the original, and lemon
If you haven't tried them yet, be sure go head to:

🍜 Menya Shi-Shi Do
📍 Lot 100.P2.039,
Level P2 The School Jaya One,
No.72A Jalan Universiti,
46200 Petaling Jaya,
Selangor.

New look


If you are an old follower of mine on Instagram, 
you know that I had asked several times if I should cut my fringe

From my last poll result,
I decided that if I managed to book a Japanese stylist, 
then I would cut my fringe.
I feel that I could rely and trust the work of a foreign more than a local one.

So I did a small research on my own.., which Japanese salon to go to, the nearest outlet to husband's house, etc.
I had two on my mind; the one with two digits in the name, and another one which is more popular among cosplayers.
The former was all full, but the latter still had available slots.
That's how I went with Daisuke Salon de Coiffure.


It's been a while since I last felt cute LOL
And honestly, I got compliments too so I feel really happy with how it turned out to be.
It has been really long since I last felt so good about my looks.

I had been traumatised since my last fringe cut last year, where it turned out like a joke. It was before my trip to Okinawa when I met my boyfriend's family (now husband). It was of course embarrassing, but when I told my Japanese friend recently, she told me that it was better to look kind than to look fashionable.
I was glad to hear that!


Thank you Mr Suzuki for the amazing work on me!

Magical Rainbow Mooncake!


Honestly, have you ever seen or even heard of one?
I was so lucky to be strolling at The School, Jaya One last weekend and  I stumbled upon Rinzbakes booth near the escalator.

As cute as they look, I wasn't very sure of myself due to the thought of artificial colourings. I was worry if my mom wouldn't enjoy them too. Then, the vendor told me that they are all less sweet, and frankly, hearing those words made me feel better. I tried the samples and felt glad that they taste just right for my liking.


Handmade with no preservatives, these lovely Rainbow Mooncakes are best eaten fresh, and last for only 7 days in room temperature, or 3 days if kept in the freezer
For the latter, once taken out, pop right in the oven in low temperature until the skin turns slightly brown

They are available in 6 flavours, you will love the layers of pretty and cute pastry skin of the mooncakes~:

1. White lotus + yolk (RM 13)
2. Black sesame lotus + yolk (RM 13)
3. White lotus + roasted melon seeds (RM 10)
4. Black sesame lotus + roasted melon seeds (RM 10)
5. Pumpkin lotus + roasted pumpkin seeds (RM 11)
6. Orange peel red bean + green tea lotus (RM 11)

These Rainbow Mooncakes are available for order here, and if you order the mooncakes this month, be sure to use the code Rainbowoff10 for a 10% off~

You can opt for a box of 4 or a box of 6 with a minimum of 7 days notice.
ps: the minimum order is one box.
If you would like to pick 'em up, the location is Lake Fields, Sungai Besi.
Delivery is available too within Klang Valley (fees to be borne by you, the buyer).

I think these Rainbow Mooncakes are a great gift for those who don't like sweet food stuff~
And the best thing is, THEY ARE HALAL!
You can treat your Muslim friends some, and share some love~

[REVIEW] A'bloom Fruit Masks

There is something for every skin concern~


Watermelon
Suitable for combination type of skin, where you get waterful skin from the hydration and moisturisation of watermelon~
Lemon
Say goodbye to dull skin! Lemon is known to clarify and unveil the natural glow from under the skin. Thanks to lime too, for helping to banish dark spots~


Peach
Recommended for oily and sensitive skin. Infused with tea tree oil, this peach mask is able to soothe and calm irritated skin, and at the same time regulate oil to give soft, smooth skin~

Avocado
Especially for dry skin type, the avocado is rich with antioxidants that protect the skin from harmful environmental factors which always cause wrinkles. Say hello to soft, supple and glowing skin after using~


My favourite has to be nourishing Avo-cuddle-me sheet mask. I actually didn't know what it was for until the next day after I used it (I didn't particularly check each of the masks' function in order to avoid bias). What I have noticed is supple and glowing skin even until the next day, and when I checked, what I experienced are exactly what it claims to do!

I also did a skin moisture test with the Water-me-long mask since I have dehydrated skin. Before I used it, my skin was 59.4% moist. After I used it, it became 65.1%~
I was amazed by its performance~


Go to  Althea to order these fruit masks~ Each mask costs RM 2
The more you buy, the more you save! 
Super worth buying!

[REVIEW] A'bloom Meringue Puffs



Sweet and versatile makeup puffs that expand up to 1.5 times when soaked before using!
Use them wet or dry, whichever you fancy, to achieve your desired look! Go for the Giant for fast and even coverage for wide areas on the face,
and for smaller, precise and detailed application, choose the Baby puff!


2 minutes is all you need to let it expand~
I always let the Baby puff sit in a cup filled with water after I shower in the morning.
While I prep my face with all skincare and face care steps, the puff has more than enough time to expand~
At its 1.5 bigger size, it looks so adorable~
Below is a video of my putting on makeup using the puffs


Bigger puff means getting my makeup done quicker. It also blends my foundation easily without leaving any streaks. On top of this time-saving feature, I suppose the selling point of the puffs is it is soft and squishy

I am never a sponge or blender makeup person, and the puffs are of course alien to me. I feel that they are easy to use (a little research helped) and beginner-friendly. Since I've got the hang of it, I do feel that they are nice to use, especially the Baby puff. 
As for the Giant puff, I am still trying to get used to it because my face isn't big enough to utilise it ahahah



So, if you are a beginner like me, I really do recommend this because they are worth every penny. The Giant Meringue Puff costs RM 11, and a set of 3 Baby Meringue Puffs costs RM 15
Head over to Althea website to start ordering~

[REVIEW] A'bloom BHA Blackhead Blaster


This is the first thing I want to talk about from the Althea package I received back in May.


The A'bloom BHA Blackhead Blaster is a gentle and non-irritating blackheads and whiteheads removal stick that is easy to carry around~ It contains white willow bark extract which helps to purify clogged pores effortlessly and painlessly. With only 1 minute, this Blackhead Blaster is able to melt and sweep away impurities to reveal soft and clean skin and at the same time preventing new ones from forming~


Steps to use:
After cleansing your face or makeup, rub the stick in circular motion on areas with excessive sebum.
Rinse off with lukewarm water.


Optional: Place a warm towel on your skin before using to open the pores.


I love the tea tree scent in it~ I only use this on my nose, where it is brighter than my future LOL
 After rinsing, my nose looks balmy and velvety! I feel almost like this Blackhead Blaster stick gives the soft and dreamy look on the skin~

I have yet to know its performance if used for months, but for only RM 19 on Althea, I think it is a really good deal!

Other items I will re reviewing soon
