[Beauty] Seri Emas Facial Soap

15:14 Unknown 24 Comments

Hello, my lovely readers! Today I would like to share with you my thoughts on facial soap.
 
Before I start my review, I would like to thank Seri Emas International for providing me the opportunity to review their product.
 
So, let's look at the soap...


Seri Emas Facial Soap is a 100% handmade soap, produced locally and it's halal. It consist 50% honey, with a combination of natural herbs, cinnamon, coconut oil, turmeric and pomegranate extract. Seri Emas claimed the soap was suitable for oily, sensitive, and acne skin; and you will be able to see the results after 7 days of using the facial soap.
 
 
Due to the pomegranate extract in the facial soap, it was red in colour with some "black spot". The size is smaller than the usual soap, and it's handy. It's easy to lather too, and a little of the foam goes a long way.
 
Unfortunately, the facial soap has a typical unpleasant scent of soap. I was expecting some honey or pomegranate scent, but none. Also, after rinsing off the foam, I felt some tightness to my skin. I have sensitive and combination skin, and I felt that the soap is too drying for my skin. After trying out the soap for couple of times, I could still feel the tightness every time I rinsed off the foam. I don't really see much result on my face, apart that I felt it's less dull after using the soap.
 
My Verdict
I felt the soap is more suitable for people with oily skin. So, if you have oily skin and have no issues with the "soapy" scent, you may want to consider this facial soap.

Plus Bazaar @ POP, Jaya One

17:32 Unknown 22 Comments


Source
Recently, I got invited by to a very special bazaar held in POP, Jaya One - Plus Bazaar by Fat is Fab.
Fat if Fab, or FIF, is a non-profit community group that promotes self-confidence through self-image. The group was founded by like-minded people, who wanted to educate the public on the wrong perceptions of being a plus size. At the same time, they wanted to encourage people who are overweight, shouldn't be ashamed of their looks, but instead embrace it proudly.
Though I'm not a plus size myself, but I find there were hardly any bazaars or shopping malls cater for plus size consumers; and this always make me frown. Hence, I was excited when I came across this bazaar. They are the first and only bazaar with plus size as the theme, and managed to gather quite a few local entrepreneurs - ranging from clothes to food, all under one roof for this 2 days bazaar.
Though I was busy going from stalls to stalls to explore some goodies, I managed to snap some photos.

REALASH: Eyelash Enhancer

16:14 Unknown 18 Comments

Do you ever wish to have such long and pretty natural eyelashes? Being an Asian myself, I understand how difficult it is for us to be "blessed" with such eyelashes naturally. Hence, ever since young, I always envy people with long, thick and curl eyelashes.
 
Since I do not have such pretty lashes, mascara became a very essential part of my makeup routine. Unfortunately, we all know that by constantly curling our eyelashes and applying mascara is actually harming our lashes; and if we do not remove the mascara thoroughly, it will do even more harm to our eyelashes. Tough, huh? >.<
 
No worry! REALASH has come to the rescue!!
 
 
Thanks to TUT Diet Supplements, I was given the product to test out their eyelash enhancer. REALASH - the world's best eyelash enhancer from France, that has took the cosmetic world by storm and highly recommended by demanding bloggers! It's able to give you that dream celebrity look - luxuriously thick eyelashes, lengthened and seductively curved to the MAX. Sounds amazing, doesn't it?
 
Source
I did some research of REALASH and got excited when I read on their results. It seems like it's just the solution that I've been searching for years.
 
How Does REALASH Work?
Typically, our lashes need 30 days to grow and most of the times, our mature eyelashes fall before the new ones are fully grown. REALASH helps the eyelashes to grow faster and stronger.
 
It is 100% safe as they use substances that work synergistically to protect our delicate skin around the eyes:
  • Natural mango and papaya fruit extracts
  • Bitter orange flowers extract
  • Sabal palm leaves extract
  • Horsetail, flax and calamus extracts - great sources of Vitamins E and C!
Worry that the product might not suit you? REALASH is intended for all women and is recommended to ladies whose eyelashes are short or weak by nature, even for sensitive eyes.
 
 
It comes in a size of 3ml and can be used up to approximately 4-5 months. The tip of the brush is moderately soft and thin, and the application is super easy:
  1. Gently remove your makeup carefully and thoroughly
  2. Apply REALASH EYELASH ENHANCER on your upper eyelid as if you are putting on eyeliner. NOTE: ONLY upper eyelid!
  3. Voila! You are done
To really try out the product, I've took some photos before I started my treatment - with and without mascara.
 

I'll be doing another post on my results after trying out the product for a month. Fingers cross and hope that I'll achieve those luxuriously thick and long curly eyelashes! *wink*
 
Price: RM 169
Size: 3ml

Willow Tree Bistro @ Desa Seri Hartamas

17:05 Unknown 40 Comments


Over the weekend, Joe and I were invited by Foodz to a food review at Willow Tree Bistro at Desa Seri Hartamas.
 
 
 
 
The restaurant is owned by a very friendly Korean lady, Gina Chun, who used to own a boutique at Bangsar Shopping Centre. You'll be able to spot some of the collections she's selling at the side of the restaurant.

It took us some time to locate the restaurant, as it's not located by the main road. For those of you who know where Souled Out in Hartamas is, the restaurant is located at the corner of the row of shops exactly behind Souled Out.

Homemade bread
The kitchen is led by Chef Hadi, a Moroccan chef who has been working London and brought the Mediterranean feel to his British influenced menu.

Fuwa Fuwa Bakery Cafe @ The School, Jaya One

17:27 Unknown 33 Comments

One of the downside working in Jaya One was that it doesn't have a bakery in the premise, and that's why when Fuwa Fuwa Bakery Café opened their bakery in The School @ Jaya One, I was super excited!
 
 
The bakery is located at 1st floor in The School @ Jaya One, exactly one floor up from [i]Store.
 
I really like their food a lot (has also visited the café a few times), so I was very excited when an opportunity came up for me to write a review for them.

Since they are a bakery café, they offer some amazing bread too! According to the very friendly wife of the owner, they started off by producing bread back in their factory in Kajang and supplying the bread dough throughout Asia including China. They decided to offer what they have to the local market as well, so they had their very first franchise - Fuwa Fuwa Bakery Café
 
(L) Mrs Pumpkin, (R) Red Bean Bandit

 I really like their bread a lot! They were really fluffy and soft. If you like bread filled with custard/cream or fan of red bean paste, do try the Mrs Pumpkin and Read Bean Bandit. I was worry the fillings would be too sweet, but it turned out just fine.
 
Tofu Cheesecake
Tired of the usual cheesecake? Try this Tofu Cheesecake! If you are a tofu and cheesecake lover, you'd love this. It so soft with a hint of tofu taste, and the crunchy base added some texture to the cake.
 
Apart from buns, breads, and cakes, they have salads, hot meals and small bites if you are looking to have a proper meal. The place is spacious and because of the natural sunlight they are getting, the place is very bright and comfy.


These are 2 of my favourite sections to chill - by the glass window and the sofas at the corner.

Let's talk about food now!

Chicken Schnitzel Salad (RM 12)
Pieces of deep-fried breaded chicken fillet sitting in top of fresh greens, lightly tossed with Thousand Island dressing - the Chicken Schnitzel Salad (RM 12) was a satisfying delicious salad. I'm neither a salad nor thousand island dressing person, but I like this dish a lot - it wasn't drowned in thousand island dressing, and the chicken had a satisfying bite to it and not greasy.

Creamy Mushroom Soup (RM 9)
They make their Creamy Mushroom Soup (RM 9) from scratch, using 2-3 different types of fresh mushroom. Compared to those instant mushroom soup served in some of the cafes/restaurants, this was way more flavourful. We could not stop having these creamy goodness!
 
Classic Carbonara (RM 17)
Classic Carbonara (RM 17). I'd shy away from carbonara most of the time, as they tend to be very heavy; but this was different. Instead of using pre-made sauce from the stores, they made the gravy themselves - a rich egg-yolk based sauce and chicken ham, drizzled over a bed of warm spaghetti.
 
Tropical Chicken Chop (RM 17)
Tropical Chicken Chop (RM 17) - a dish that I've ordered couple of times. The chicken was grilled and drizzled with their house special gravy, served with salad, fries, pineapple ring and caramelized cherry tomatoes. The chicken was juicy but not greasy - healthy AND yummy!
 
Grilled Chicken Burger (RM 15)
Grilled Chicken Burger (RM 15). Juicy pieces of chicken in between their homemade bun, served with fries and spicy Peri Peri sauce. The wholemeal bun was really soft - another yummy AND healthy dish.
 
In order to give their patrons more choices, they'll have special menu on and off. So, do drop by the café and check their specials out!
 
With it being a café, I've got to try their coffee.
Cafe Latte (RM 9)
Flat White (RM 10)

Cafe Mocha (RM 10)
 
The coffee were really good, and I like the coffee art on my cafe mocha. Also, their add in double shot to all of their coffee instead of single shot. Yay for a coffee lover like me! If you prefer your coffee to be stronger, you can always add RM2 for additional shot.
 
Fret not, if you are not a coffee lover.
 
Hot Chocolate (RM 9)
I know this sounds weird, but I'm not a fan of chocolate and could really live without it, hence, I'd never order any chocolate beverages. However, the Hot Chocolate (RM 9) here tasted quite good - not too sweet and doesn't have that unpleasant-cheap-quality-chocolate taste.

For tea lovers, they offer organic tea too!
 
Apart from serving hot meals to bread, they self-manufactured cookies too!
 
Cookies (RM 8/box)
We didn't get to try the cookies yet, but I'm contemplating to get one and try it out. They have 4 flavours - Strawberry, Blueberry, Orange, and Cranberry.
 
 
Look how cute their logo! It's a bread man holding loaves of bread.
 
They have baking & décor classes for kids too! This way, the parents can sit down and enjoy some nice meal while the kids having fun at the baking classes. It's definitely a nice way to spend the weekend.
 
 
Cupcakes
The cupcakes were so cute, and they were my childhood favourite - sesame street! Seriously, these kids were really talented. I can't even do simple decoration on my cupcakes.
 
You can now sign up for their membership card. It's only RM 15 for 2 years.
 
 
I got my membership card, and I like the graphic on the front.
 
 
What do you get by being their member?
  •  5% discount from total bill
  • Special discounts on selected buns
  • Birthday tokens
  • Monthly promotion & monthly surprises
  • Students special - 10% discount on total bill
Overall, I really like the place a lot and I actually do come back and hang out there over the weekend. It's a very bright and cosy place, and it gives a very welcoming vibe to the patrons. As for the pricing, I'd say it's reasonable given the quality of the food they are offering.
