[Food] Grab Cafe @ Damansara Jaya, PJ

22:44 becky-wong 30 Comments

Hello, lovely people! I bet you folks had a crazy and fun New Year Eve countdown. Just in case you are wondering, I spent my eve writing my blog post. LOL!!
 
 
Any burger or rib lovers out there?*waving* I would like to suggest to you a nice café located in Damansara Jaya - GRab Café. It's a family-run café, and they offer some mouth-watering gourmet burgers and ribs. The café is located at the last block of shop lot (towards the highway) behind the PETRONAS (nearby KDU Damansara Jaya).
 
Thanks to FoodInk, Joe and I had the chance to try out some of their dishes.
 

Bull Going Nuts (RM16) - Beef patty, beef bacon, cheese, caramelized onion, blueberry jelly and peanut butter, butterhead lettuce and fresh tomatoes. The patty was nice and juicy but was a little disappointed as I can't taste the peanut butter in the burger.
 
 
Tokyo Drift Chicken (RM14) - Chicken patty, grilled pineapple, cheese, caramelized onion, teriyaki sauce, butterhead lettuce and fresh tomatoes. Same as the beef burger, the chicken was tender and juicy too with a nice touch of the sweetness from the teriyaki sauce.
 
 
Lamb Bizkit (RM16) - Lamb patty, hash brown, cheese, gherkin, minted mayo, butterhead lettuce and fresh tomatoes. This lamb burger was one of my favourite - the lamb patty was juicy and gamey. So, this could be a good choice for all of you lamb lovers out there.
 
 
Spice-Up Ribs Burger (RM23) - Beef rib, grilled pineapple, caramelized onion, Indonesian sambal, butterhead lettuce and fresh tomatoes. The rib was fork tender, but it's lacking in some beef flavours. As a lover to spicy food, I was excited when I heard they incorporated Indonesian sambal into the burger, but it was a let-down as I did not taste any spiciness in it. I wasn't too sure if it was the chef's intention to minimise the heat of the sambal.
 
 
Hashtag Vegan (RM12) - Fried Portobello mushroom, hash brown, cheese, homemade Grab sauce, butterhead lettuce and fresh tomatoes. Not a meat lover? Vegetarian? No worry! They offer vegan burger too. Another favourite burger of mine - it was tough to say no to the rich and earthy fried Portobello mushroom.
 
Looking for something other than burgers? They offer some delicious non-burger dishes too!
 
 
Beef Stroganoff Rice (RM18) - Fillet Mignon quick seared for flavour cooked in heavy cream with mixture of gherkin, bell peppers, button mushroom and onion served with rice. Simple looking yet it was flavourful, and the fillet mignon was perfectly seared. Personally, I would advice to share this dish if you are a small eater - the rice and heavy cream can really be a killer!
 
 
Fricassee (RM23) - Two fried eggs, braised short ribs, sautéed potatoes, caramelized onions, cheddar cheese, and tomato relish with toast. I think this is a pretty looking breakfast, especially the heart-shaped fried eggs. Cute! Though the rib was fork tender, it could use a little bit more of seasoning/rub or cheddar to add some extra flavour to it. You can choose to have either white of whole meal bread as your toast.
 
 
Aviator Salad (RM15) - Crisp mesclun salad, cherry tomatoes, bell peppers, poached egg coated in corn flakes and seaweed with vinaigrette dressing. We were told that this was one of their specialties, and I was looking forward when I heard "poached egg coated in corn flakes". It's an interesting salad, and the vinaigrette wasn't overpowering. It's really important that a salad dressing is well-balanced or else you might end up with an overly acidic salad, and I think the chef has done a good job here. You can have a choice of smoked salmon or smoked chicken breast to go with your salad.
 
 
 
The coffee were not too bad, and I'm still quite puzzled what was the art supposed to be on my Mocha. Hmmm~~~~
 
 
If you not a coffee lover, they offer tea and sodas too (RM5 - RM9), and I was told their red tea was really good.
 
Do drop by and give the café a try, and I'll love to know your thoughts on them too! ^_^

[Beauty] Enchanteur - Teases the Senses

22:31 becky-wong 1 Comments

Many girls I know are really into perfume and fragrances, and they usually have more than one bottle of perfume. I, on the other hand, am not really a perfume person because - 1) my nose is seriously sensitive towards a lot of fragrances, 2) the strong scents make me nausea. Hence, I'm very picky over the ones that I use.
 
 
I'm sure many of you would have heard of Enchanteur. They are one of the leading mass market fragrance brands not in developing enticing new fragrances but also enhances its reach and engagement with the consumers. They have a wide range of quality French-inspired products such as shower, talc and deodorant; and now they are launching an advertising campaign which will tease the senses as part of its new fragrance introduction.

The new form of advertising is targeted at evoking the senses by way of "sight", "sounds" and "smell". For the first time ever Malaysians will get to experience a multi-sensorial commercial that stimulates all these 3 senses!

According to their Product Manager, Ooi Boay Khim, audiences are now able to get a whiff of the fragrance being promoted as soon as the commercial is played in the cinema. This campaign will be promoting the newly launched ENCHANTEUR PARIS EDT FASIONISTA and the commercial will be running for till February 2015. Consumers can catch it at selected TGV cinemas.


I was lucky enough to be given a chance to try out 2 of their fragrances - Fashionista and Glam. I like the bottle a lot - a very ladylike heart-shaped designed bottle!

Let's look into each of the fragrances, shall we?

[Review] My FoodPanda Experience

16:34 becky-wong 10 Comments

After all the recent beauty posts, I'm back again with another kind-of-food-related review!

Ever wished that your meal will be delivered to your doorstep, especially when you are too caught up with work or to exhausted to cook a meal after a whole day of work? We are talking more than just fast food like McD or KFC here.
 
 
I'm sure you are familiar with FoodPanda by now. They are an online food delivery service, who believe that ordering food should be easy, fast and definitely fun!
 
After hearing so much about FoodPanda, I decided to give it a try.

Question: How far are you willing to go to pro-long your youth or maintain your beauty?
 
Ever since the ancient time, human being has been finding ways to either pro-long their youth or maintain their beauty. In the modern time, many are even willing to go under the knife just to achieve this goal. Today, I have something to share with you and it involves a certain small slimy creature.
 
Photo source from internet
Yes, they are snail indeed! It's no news that people have been using snail slime as part of their beauty treatment, and usually this kind of treatment tend to cost a bomb! Frankly, if you ask me, I wouldn't want to these slimy crawlers all around my face. So, what options do I have if I want to experience the "miracle" of snail slime?
 
 
Mon Amour Snail Collagen Gel Mask is my alternative. It's made up of 100% natural ingredients.

16:23 becky-wong 0 Comments


"Alexander and The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day".

Wow, This is one long movie title!
 
Thanks to ChurpChurp, I got invited to the premiere screening of this Disney production.
 
 
Movie Info:
"11 year-old Alexander experiences the most terrible and horrible days of his young life. His day begins with one disaster after another. However, when he tried to tell his family of his misadventures of his disastrous day, he finds little sympathy from them and begins to think bad things only happened to him but not his perfect family. Soon, he realised that he's not alone in this - when his family all find themselves going through their own disastrous day."

Happy mid-week, my lovely readers! Once again, I'm back with another beauty post; and today, I would like to talk about "whitening and lightening". Over the years I noticed that Asians are really obsessed with skin whitening and/or lightening products, and some would go all out just to achieve a snowy white skin.

Without furtherado, I would like to introduce you my latest review from HishopMirabella Skincare.

 
 
The design of the packaging is really nice and girlie.

[Event] Benzac Skincare - Your Trusted Acne Solution

11:12 becky-wong 11 Comments


Thanks to EverQuest, I was invited to the official launch of Benzac Skincare Malaysia.
 
 
Galderma, the Swiss-based global dermatology company who brought you Cetaphil, has recently introduced Benzac onto Malaysia shores. Benzac is a highly popular swiss-formulated acne-solution range with simple skincare routine designed to provide the right products to help fight acne.
 
 
The fuss-free simple Malaysian product line-up consists of:
  • Daily Facial Liquid Cleanser for Oily and Combination Skin
  • Daily Facial Foam Cleanser for Oily and Combination Skin
  • Daily Facial Liquid Cleanser for Sensitive to Normal Skin
  • Daily Facial Foam Cleanser for Sensitive to Normal Skin
  • Facial Scrub for All Skin Types
  • AC Gel

1. Daily Facial Liquid and Foam Cleansers - Oily to Combination Skin


The cleansers claimed to:
  • Controls oiliness without drying skin
  • Removes impurities and helps unlock pores
  • Contains natural extracts of Aloe Vera and Calendula to help hydrate and soften skin
  • Dermatologically tested
Retail Price:
Benzac Daily Liquid Cleanser (120ml) - RM 32.70
Benzac Daily Foam Cleanser (130ml) - RM 32.90

2. Daily Facial Liquid and Foam Cleansers - Sensitive to Normal Skin


The cleansers claimed to:

Benzac Daily Foam Cleanser (130ml) - RM 32.90


3. Facial Scrub - All Skin Types


Apart from choosing the right cleanser, it is crucial to exfoliate our skin to remove any dead skin cells, so that the skin would absorb better any products that we apply onto our face after that.

Benzac Facial Scrub is able to:
  • Removes impurities & clean pores
  • Gently exfoliates & deeply cleanses the skin
  • Reduces skin oiliness
  • Dermatologically tested

I tested the scrub on the back of my hand and I felt that the particles were small and wasn't too rough. I was informed in order to obtain the best results, it's advisable to use the scrub twice a week.

Retail Price:
Benzac Facial Scrub (60gm) - RM 24.30

4. AC Gel



 
After the pores are clean and free of impurities, it's ready to move on to the next step - treating the acne. I've been battling with acne for years, and I understand how difficult it is to do so.
 
Benzac AC Gel came to the rescue. It is hard on acne and soft on skin because:
  • Water-based formulation
  • Less drying and irritation compared to alcohol-based benzoyl peroxide
  • Kills 94% of P acnes (bacteria which caused acne)
  • Unclog pores, blackheads & whiteheads
  • Reduces inflammation & dry the acnes
  • Absorb up to 4 times the excessive sebum from the skin surface
Retail Price:
Benzac AC Gel 2.5% (60gm) - RM 32.70
Benzac AC Gel 5% (15gm) - RM 12.20
Benzac AC Gel 5% (60gm) - RM 36.70
Benzac AC Gel 10% (60gm) - RM 38.60

We had the opportunity to know more on the products from 3 special speakers - (L to R) Jean-Sebastian Ricard (GM of SEA of Galderma), Dr Norazirah Bt Md Nor (Consultant Dermatologist from UKM Medical Centre), Mr The Chean Boon (Sales & Marketing of Galderma Malaysia).
 
On the side note....
 
 
 
They had a little Instagram competition during the event, and I was one of the lucky winner to walk away with a Benzac hamper!
 
I'll be testing out the products and will do a write up on this. Stay tune for my review!!!!
 
Benzac's complete range of acne solutions is available at all Caring pharmacies, AEON Wellness and major independent pharmacies nationwide.
