Foodie adventure

Here's my monthly food adventure update. Don't think I am able to diet anytime soon.

But first, eating healthy at Chai Bar, Oasis, Ara Damansara.
Never tried any salad bar of this sort so it was my first.
Caeser's Salad was the perfect choice for me because it was a good combination for a fulfilling lunch. Don't be fooled. Although it's a salad, there's chicken breast, egg and vege for a complete meal. Actually, tasted not bad at all!
I love it and would definitely go back when I'm in the mood for a super healthy lunch hehe

Back to Jyu Raku, Subang Jaya.
More sashimis!

Tuna Belly is expensive however chewy with its tender. I think I still prefer normal tuna or salmon belly hehe

Another super raw meal.
A year back I would have looked at this on the verge of puking, but after eating so many sashimi dishes, I'm getting used to it =)
As long as its fresh, I'm good and Jyu Raku only serves the freshest!

Haraju Cube, Empire Damansara
Imagine my horror when we had to line up for a seat -_-

But it was worth the wait!
The yummy tart was creamy and delicious! It is a must try aside from the famous...

Toast Box.
We had the fruit toast box accompanied by green tea.

The bread inside was super soft and it's safe to say, it's was a beautiful mess!
However, it's pricey but that's what you pay these days for a great dessert.

Next up is Take Eat Easy Modern Bakery & Cafe, Bandar Menjalara, Kepong
This looks something like Levain.

I love bakeries and I especially love cafes which serve bakeries!

Do you know this is called 'Nasi Lemak bun'. I kid you not.

It has rice, sambal, ikan bilis and topped with eggs on the top.
However wrong this bun is, it's actually quite yummy. I wouldn't mind eating this again.
Very unique and so clever!

Pasta carbonara was not too bad served with salted egg. Very different!

Hot chocolate was huge and had an equal portion of milk and chocolate.

Red velvet waffle with ice cream.
Unfortunately, not my cup of waffle.
Overall, price was quite reasonable with the portion of food and the environment was cozy. I love their huge comfy chairs. Good place to chill.

Went for a bachelorette party at The BBP @ The Club, Bandar Utama.
BBP stands for the Big Black Pig. It serves mostly pork.

Nachos was really good! We had like so many of these.

The pork platter was good with soft tender pork, pork ribs and roasted pork.
I would definitely be back for the food. 

Pardon us, it was a bachelorette party haha

The service was really good and the waitresses really catered to our needs and helped us in so many ways. It is a good restaurant to have parties!

Korean BBQ San Nae Deul, Empire Damansara.
Never had Korean BBQ buffet before and it was the first and we managed to whack like the entire menu for all 10 of us LOL

You can literally just choose anything from the buffet menu and it will be delivered to us and it's only around RM45 per pax! Soo worth it for foodies like me hehe 

Pork slices.

Beef slices

This beef ribs is the best among all and we had like 3 plates of this alone haha

We ate til so full and the food there are not only delicious but very worth it and it comes it big portions.

To end the food adventure this month, I'm sure all of you would have heard about KFC's newest menu. KFC brings a fiesta of flavours with the new Ole Ole Rice Wrap.
This latest wrap offers a unique combination of Mexican Rice, Salsa sauce and the signature Zinger strips wrapped in a warm toasted tortilla, for only RM5.90!

This wrap includes everyone's all time favourite KFC crispy Zinger strips with aromatic Mexican seasoned rice, freshly diced tomatoes, cucumbers and onions, delightfully drizzled with mayonnaise and Mexican salsa sauce all jam-packed in a single wrap, promising a flavorful fiesta in your mouth. 

It is perfectly paired with the new Golden Potato Bites as sides, together with a refreshing Mountain Dew carbonated drink. The Potato Bites are soft, chewy and addictive! I definitely prefer this than the regular french fries.

It is a complete meal in a flavour-packed wrap. Tasty and convenient for those on the go. I was soo full just by finishing the wrap and haven't even close to finishing my Golden Potato Bites and my drink. It was really filling!

KFC Ole Ole Rice Wrap is available in a combo meal at only RM8.90. It includes the Rice Wrap, the Golden Potato Bites and a regular Mountain Dew carbonated drink.

For a bigger eat, customers may opt for a box meal that comes with the Rice Wrap, one piece of Original or Hot & Spicy KFC Chicken together with the Golden Potato Bites and a regular Mountain Dew drink at RM12.90.

Amara, located in the heart of the busy Sri Petaling is a beauty haven for women! 
Their beauty therapists are a class above the rest, a haven where your beauty and relaxation needs will be well taken care of.  It has 2 floors and a huge cozy place for all your beauty needs. 

They provide beauty services such as warm oil massage, spa manicure & pedicure, facial, slimming, you name it!

From the moment I opened the doors into Amara, I was delighted at the huge place which was so comfortable and cozy.

The mani pedi place is also huge and it can accommodate a few people at one time.

The chairs were so comfy and everything was hygienic and clean, which is the most important to me.

My nails have been left abandoned for a few months as I did not have the time to care for it.
So, I decided to have my spa manicure and pedicure to beautify my hands and legs.

First of, pampering my hands first:

Scrub and massage. The beauty therapist was experienced and handled my hands with care.

Thereafter, lotion application and heat wrap therapy for the moisture to seep into skin.

Nails time!
Buff the nails for a square shape.

Cuticle pusher.

Cuticle removal.

Polish application.

Decided to be girly and went for pink!

In the meantime, my legs were soaked.

Then scrubbed and massaged.

Callous removal.

Lotion application and heat wrap therapy to moisturise skin.

Cuticle removal.

Polish application.

Finally, the end results:

Beautiful nails!
So pretty, can't stop admiring them hehe

It was so relaxing and I fell asleep at some point during the session especially with the soothing music in the background.
My hands and legs were smooth and moisturised and any dirt surrounding the skin has been scrubbed and cleaned. The beauty therapists were soft and gentle and were not rough. I can tell that the therapists were experienced and it made the session all the more relaxing.

Do take advantage of their August promotion with only RM138 for classic manicure with gel colour, nail art as well as classic pedicure!

Serywn travel kit- for everyone and anyone (plus giveaways!)

Skincare are just so expensive these days!
And sometimes, brands do not have a smaller bottle to sample so we have no choice but to buy the full sized product only to find out later that it's not suitable for our skin ='(
Hundreds and hundreds of bucks are wasted just to try out the products and ended up wasting 3/4 of the solution because of skin allergies etc

Introducing Serywn skincare which is not only at the same level with brands like SK II, La Mer, Estee Lauder etc, but with a fraction of price AND you can try out their travel kit to first test whether it's suitable for your skin.

This handy travel kit is so convenient for travel and it comes with a beautiful pouch so you can just grab n' go!

Serywn tackles 7 major skin problems mainly:

a) Dry skin
b) Pores
c) Skin dullness
d) Fine lines
e) Uneven Skin Tone
f) Sensitive Skin
g) Speckle

Serywn is made in Taiwan and is made of deep sea minerals so be sure to know that it's FREE from:
-Paraffin Oil

The main ingredients of Serywn products are:

 a) Deep sea water(extracted from 600m below ocean level) 
-Extracted from deep ocean water at 600m below ocean surface which is pure and uncontaminated. Deep Ocean is rich in natural sea minerals and trace elements, containing magnesium, calcium and potassium.

b) Maifanite Stone Extract(commonly known as healing stone) 
-Maifanite stone is very porous and contain high micro nutrient elements. That makes it readily absorb impurities contained in the water and able to balance the radical ions. It regulates skin metabolism effectively and improves skin moisture

c) Oryza Sativa (Rice) Extract
-It has the inhibitory effect on the activity of Tyrosine which causes the black pigmentation in skin

d) Humulus Lupulus Extract
-This ancient herbal plant contains high natural preservative qualities and gives optimum moisturising effect for a radiant complexion

The travel kit comes with 5 bottles of skincare together with a mask.

Let's go through step by step on how to use Serywn skincare travel kit:

Firstly is of course to deep cleanse our skin with the Moisturising Cleansing Gel, 20ml

What I love about Serywn is not only the effectiveness but also the little things.
They specially made a small tube to cover the opening so that the solution doesn't pour when you travel and it is intact in the bottle!

It is a transparent liquid which lathers into a soft creamy foam to effectively deep cleanse pores inside-out removing dirt and other impurities.

Gently lather an appropriate amount of cleanser on moistened palm and apply on damp face and neck.
After cleansing and massaging face, it leaves skin moist, clean and fresh!

The Advanced Hydrating Toner, 20ml is important in our skincare daily routine.

Just drop some onto palm and...

...dab onto face so that it penetrates into skin immediately.
This advanced hydrating toner effectively keeps the skin soothed, calmed and balances the skin's moisture level. It also prepares skin for better absorption of the benefits of the other Serywn products.

Next is Advanced Activating Concentrate, 6ml
This is a concentrated essence that penetrates quickly and deeply to build the skin's resistance by filling it with moisture and to brighten skin leaving skin brighter and luminous.

It contains 2-O-Ethyl Ascorbic Acid which is Vitamin C derivative, and can penetrate into skin more effectively and metabolised into ascorbic acid(Vitamin C), which is an antioxidant to increase the synthesis of collagen. 

Apply over cleansed and toned face and neck using light, upward movement.

Now, my favourite!
This Moisturising Hydrating Cream is so suitable for my oily skin and the humid climate.

Just press some onto palm...

...and dab it all over the face to refresh and soothe face leaving skin feeling soft and elastic! This moisturiser seals the retains moisture in the upper layers of the skin (epidermis layer). It creates a barrier on your skin that keeps oils from escaping and outside harmful elements from entering that causes skin dryness and irritation.

The Advanced Protective Cream, 6gm acts as a sunblock and designed specially for sensitive skin

The left side was applied with the Advanced Protective Cream while the right is bare.
As you can see, it gives skin a moisturised luminous glow while guarding skin against UVA and UVB radiation.

Lastly, the best seller and most recommended Serywn product!
This mask is as good as an SKII mask. Trust me, I have tried both before.

This hydrating firming mask improves dry and rough skin in just 15 minutes! It is enriched with repairing essences to leave skin supple, moisturised and have that 'boink' 'boink' skin elasticity hehe 

Pampering time!
This mask is the ultimate 'magic' solution for me.

Close up.
Before Serywn skincare and the mask, my skin was dull and rough.
After cleansing, toning and masking, in just half an hour, my skin immediately became brighter and glowing ^_^
I absolutely love this mask and a great shoutout to Serywn mask because you MUST absolutely try it for yourself =)

The only downside- the travel kit is too small for me haha...I had to repurchase in full sized products especially the mask!!

This skincare kit is of the most natural, harmless and non toxic skincare set I have used as it has no harmful chemical contents. Serywn is produced from ingredients of high permeability that can easily penetrate the skin lining into the inner layers. This gives skin better repairing results. 

With Noxious-Ingredients-Free (NIF) technique of production, Serywn pampers you with a soft, healthier and more radiant skin. It also reduces the chances of allergic reaction to skin and provide a superb skincare solution. Using this biotechnology technique, natural plant extracts undergo natural decomposition to produce the high-tech preservative, which contain no harmful toxics like chemical preservative(patrabens), DEHP, paraffin oil, alcohol or heavy metal elements. It rebuilds epidermis layers, rejuvenates and provides a perfect skin protection system.

Don't take my word for it. Just see it for yourself:

This user, Sean Choi used Serywn for 1 month or so and the results speak for itself. His acne prone skin has cleared up and his skin no longer have bad breakouts. If you see him in real life, you'll agree when I say he radiates because he does! Serywn really cleared up his skin and everyone around him are just impressed with the results ^_^

Another user, Felicia Tan had very visible acnes, scars and skin discolouration before this. But after constant usage of Serywn products for a year, just look at her 'After' pictures. Her skin cleared up, her skin tone is more even, and no more visible scarring. Amazing right?

Her testimonial:

"I have very sensitive skin ever since I was young, combined with an active and outdoor lifestyle, I always grew up with constant pimples and acne problems on my face. Have tried many pharmacy brands and even salon brands but the results are only temporary and when that time of the month comes, I would still have to suffer acne breakouts. I tried Serywn for at least 6 months consistently and saw proper results and safe to say that after 1 year, my skin complexion is totally different. My pimples and acnes have drastically reduced and scars and skin discolouration is now barely visible. Also, my pores are much smaller. Now, I don't have to use such heavy concealer to conceal any imperfections."

All individual product in the travel kit are also sold individually in their own full sized product. If you feel your skin connects more to one product better than the other, you can always re-purchase your favourite product in full size. Serywn has a wide range of products for different purposes and in fact they have in total 11 different types of skincare products, but for starters, this travel kit is highly recommended for first users!
