Happenings in January & February - Food Diary + SK-II Facial Treatment Clear Lotion

Thursday 25/1/18

Hello everybody. I'm back from my Taiwan trip. I already miss traveling again, my next overseas trip is probably end of the year. Many months of waiting to go.

I bought some snacks from Taiwan to share with my family and colleagues. All these were purchased in Ximending except for the Bamboo Shoot Biscuit, which was purchased in Taichung.

We went People's Park Food Centre for dinner, I decided to try Chicken Cutlet Hor Fun.
After the quick dinner, we made our way down to SGH to visit bro. Glad that he was feeling better and will be discharged tomorrow.


Friday 26/1/18

It's TGIF. 
Since today is a special day, bf and I decided to skip our usual dinner at hawker centre and went Vivo City for dinner. We have our dinner at Tai Lei Loi Kei.

I have Black Pepper Sliced Pork Rice ($7.90+). 
This resembled the normal zichar rice set that I always ordered.

Apart from our main course, we also ordered Polo Pork Chop Bun ($6.90+) for sharing.
The food and price are decent. The only grip is that the eatery is small, so once we finished the food, we have to make a move because queue were forming outside the eatery.


Saturday 27/1/18

I met up with KP to accompany her to Bugis to shop for  CNY clothing. Before we embarked on the shopping, we went to Burger King for lunch.

We decided to have Burger King because we wanted to try their cheese fries. I ordered my all-time favourite Fish Burger.

I didn't manage to buy any clothes today because I still have new clothing from my overseas trip that I have yet to wear. It has been a long time since we meet up for shopping.


Sunday 28/1/18

Bf and I met up with Ah Ho for dinner at Astons Specialities @ Bugis+. Yes, for both days I have been traveling to Bugis. It was a hearty dinner with many juicy news sharing that kept us talking for hours.


Thursday 1/2/18

We traveled to City Square Mall for lunch at Pizza Hut. It's been a long while since I last have Pizza Hut. Pizza is one of my favourite food.

We have the lunch set that comes with drink and soup.
The soup of the day was vegetable soup.

I ordered my all time favourite - Hawaiian  Pan Pizza.
The pizza arrived pipping hot. I always love the pizza from Pizza Hut and their doughy crust.

Ended my day with dinner at People's Park Food Centre where I had Fried Wanton Noodle and Sugarcane drink. The Fried Wantons were big and crispy.


Friday 2/2/18

I met up with GF for lunch at KFC.

We have our favourite Popcorn Chicken Snacker Meal. 
Today's meetup was to exchange our overseas goodies we bought for each other and to discuss about her solemnization ceremony happening on this coming Sunday. Look forward to Sunday.

Sweet gummy from Japan. Thanks GF for the gifts.

GF also got me a hand lotion during one of her overseas trips. 

I have been using it diligently. 
The hand lotion has a light lemon fragrance. It protects our hands and provides radiance.

Sharing a beauty product that a friend has given to us recently: SK-II Facial Treatment Clear Lotion.

The clear lotion helps to remove stubborn impurities to reveal the skin's true radiance and prep us for our next skincare regime. I have recently started using it. It was really a big bottle, I can use it for a long time.

That's all for sharing today, good bye.

Burger King Striploin Steak Night

What beats welcoming the start of the week with a feast with Burger King?

Burger and beef lovers will be happy to know that Burger King has introduced a latest addition to the Ultimate Selection:
Ultimate Striploin Steak Mushroom Swiss Burger

The Ultimate Striploin Steak Mushroom Swiss Burger is only available for a limited period, do try it before it is gone. It's hard to find a full slab of striploin in a burger. It is available in Burger King from 5 June 2018 onwards, while stocks last.

The striploin steak, bursting with Burger King's signature flame-grilled flavour is toppled with the all-time favourite savoury combination of sauteed mushrooms and creamy melted Swiss cheese. They are sandwiched between a corn-dusted sourdough bun and garnished with sweet caramelised onions, fresh tomatoes and crunchy Batavia lettuce. 

The Ultimate Striploin Steak Mushroom Swiss Burger value meal is served with thick cut fries and Coke Zero at the price of $11.90, you can opt to change the fries to onion rings too.

Apart from the Ultimate Striploin Steak Mushroom Swiss Burger, we were treated to a bowl of side dishes to go with our burger - nuggets, onion rings and french fries. 

I love their onion rings the best. The bite size crispy onion rings got me addicted and we finished it in no time.

Burger King has also introduced Ultimate Tendercrisp Chicken Burger ($7.50 for ala carte or $8.90 for value meals).

Live up to the name of 'Ultimate Tendercrisp Chicken Burger', the chicken was crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. The patty was topped with Swiss cheese, Turkey Ham, crispy Turkey Bacon, Batavia Lettuce and creamy Mayo sandwiched in between Corn Dusted Sourdough buns.

The burger was spicy good with so many ingredients filled in it. The mayo has balance out the spiciness of the chicken, giving it a hot and tangy taste.

I have drinks on standby to ease my throat.

Never say no to ice cream.
I ended the tasting with a sweet finish by having a Strawberry Sundae. 

Thanks GF for bringing me to the tasting.
It was a nice catch up at Burger King @ Cineleisure.

Johor Bahru 2D1N: Canton I + Baguss City Hotel + Nyonya Leaf

Saturday 16/12/17

Yes, staycation was finally here again. It was with a different partner this time round.
Being friends with Linda for 6 years, we have never went for a getaway trip together before. Hence, we decided to organize a girls' 2D1N trip to Johor Bahru (JB) for a short getaway. GF was supposed to join us but she couldn't it last minute, so both of us carry on with the trip.

We met up at 11am at Kranji MRT and was shocked by the horrendous queue forming at the bus stop, but luckily the queue was moving fast. We caught the longest jam I ever encountered at JB checkpoint which took 2.5 hours to clear due to multiple lines forming for clearance. They should really build a barrier at each clearance to avoid such situation from happening. After hours of waiting, we finally cleared JB checkpoint at about 3.30pm.

Along our way to City Square, I went over to money changer to change my currency. The exchange rate was S$1: RM3.015

We were famished by the time we reached City Square. The first thing we did was going for our late lunch. Linda suggested Canton I as she has cravings for their radish cake. We ordered the below dishes for sharing.

First up was Shrimp Rice Roll (Chee Cheong Fun). The texture was soft and together with the soy sauce drizzle, it tasted heavenly delicious.

First time trying their Radish Cake, this dish was highly recommended by Linda.
It was really nice and unlike the usual carrot cake we always have in Singapore.

We also ordered Siew Mai, Fried Wanton and Egg Tart.
The crust was not too soft and the custard was light. 

Our lunch bill totaled up to RM63.25. Now with our stomach filled, we have energy to walk around before checking in to our hotel. So coincidence, I met my cousin and cousin-in-law when I came out of Canton I. Kelvin and Peina were there for staycation too, just that they came in yesterday. What are the odds of meeting people at JB?

After half an hour of walking, our feet were tired and the rain has stopped. We made our way to the hotel which is just 5 minutes walk away from City Square. 

We were staying at Baguss City Hotel. We selected this 3 stars hotel because it was valuable for money and excellent location to shopping malls. 

A glimpse to our deluxe twin room. Though the room was small, it was decent and clean. Cleanliness is an important criteria for me when choosing hotel. My bed was the one nearest to the window.

We dropped our belongings on the table. It was 5pm, the tired us decided to laze in hotel. It feel so good to be in hotel till we don't feel like getting up.

The view from our hotel room, we were staying at 10th floor. From our room, we could see JB Checkpoint. That's how near our hotel is from the Checkpoint.

We just nua in the hotel enjoying our girls talk and deciding our plans for tonight. We intended to catch a late night movie later on.

We left the hotel at about 6pm to begin another round of shopping. Since we have a late lunch, we didn't went for dinner so early. We started to settle for dinner at 7.40pm.

We tried out Oleg by gCafe for the first time. Oleg is a trendy cafe that serves Waffle burgers, Charcoal burgers, Curry Rice, Coffee, Tea and Dessert.

Both of us tried different food. I have Crispy Chicken Curry Rice Set (RM14.75) while Linda has Soft Shell Crab Charcoal Burger Set.

Though the curry gravy for my rice set may seem little, I could taste the spiciness in each bite, the spiciness level was no joke. Lucky I have a cup of Ice Lemon Tea with me. Next time round, I want to try the Soft Shell Crab Burger.

We lazed around in the cafe until 9.15pm, chit chatting away. It was like so long since we last spent such long hours together. We usually just met up for dinner which is just around 2 hours.

After some last minute shopping, we went over to MM Cineplex to catch our movie which started at 10.05pm.

We watched Ferdinand, a movie by 20th Century Fox.

Running time: 1 hour 48 minutes

"Ferdinand" is the story of a giant bull with a big heart. After a series of incidents and being mistaken for a dangerous beast, he is captured and brought back to his birth place Determined to return back to his family, he rallies a misfit team on the ultimate adventure and proves that we can't judge a bull by its cover. 

It was a very touching movie and I teared watching it.
It brings out the message of showing kindness, fostering friendship and saying no to violence.

**
While watching the show, I was actually quite disturbed by the incident happening around me. We were seated at the right hand corner of the theatre where they were 5 seats. I was seated at the second  seat (nearer to the walkway) while Linda was at the third. Halfway watching the movie, I saw a middle age man sitting at the walkway step. He was quite near to me, in between us was an empty seat beside me. I just find him weird, why did he sit down on the floor instead of seat?
I didn't bothered much about him until I saw him lie down and sleep on the floor, I bent in front to make sure that his legs were not anywhere near me. I told Linda that this man was weird, she told me not to be too bothered.

I couldn't help but stole glance at him once in awhile as he kept fidgeting around. I witnessed something shocking, he went on to take off his jean and continued lying down. My goodness, I have the urge to film this weird man but was also afraid that he was actually awake and know what I'm doing. I alerted Linda again and she told me the same thing too.

He was sleeping all the way even until end of the movie. We have to walk past him in order to get out of the theatre. He didn't had his underwear on. What a unique movie experience in JB.

It was already 12am when we came out, we were so glad that my hotel was so near to the mall because it is dangerous for 2 girls to wander out so late in a foreign country. While on our way back, I tried to be alert on the surrounding and people looking at us. Thank goodness it was just a short distance. 

I went back hotel with purchase from Padini (for bf), Watson and beauty products at RM63.50. Day 1 has ended for us, we went to sleep at around 2 plus in the morning. We put on mask, talked about the movie incident and watching channel 8 show.


Sunday 17/12/17

Good morning, we woke up early at 8am to prepare ourselves for breakfast. Our hotel stay is inclusive of breakfast. It took us awhile to wake up as the aircon temperature was nice to sleep in.

I was the first to get myself prepared, now was Linda's turn. 
I got myself a temporary tattoo the night before our trip, how does it look?

My OOTD, my lazt day outfit. I always love matching a long top with shorts.

Girls stay out was great, we shared enjoyable time together and having our girls chat. I'm glad that Linda enjoyed this trip and even wanting more staycation together. 

We went down to the lobby for breakfast at 9am. It was a pretty small dining area and the spread of choices were limited too.

The breakfast spread was not really fantastic and the taste wasn't that great either. But no complain since it was a complimentary breakfast. 

The most delicious food was this plain bread with the spicy gravy.

After a quick half an hour breakfast, we went up to our room again to rest and pack up our stuffs.

A short weekend getaway to JB has always been great relief to our busy schedules, making us stay away from all our mobile and computer gadgets, and the fast paced life in Singapore. It was also a great catch up for us where we spent hours chatting in our hotel room these 2 days.

We checked out the hotel at 11 plus and headed back to City Square for lunch.

We went Nyonya Leaf for our lunch. 
Our 2 days trip was revolving all around food. JB is indeed a great makan place, which is why I enjoy coming here for food despite the jam.

We ordered quite a lots of food for 2 pax - 1 side, 1 main and 1 dessert each.
The savoury lunch with whole table full of food immediately lifted up our mood and can't wait to sink our teeth in it. Total bill was RM46.60, we had a full and satisfying lunch. This was my favourite meal among the entire trip.

I ordered Curry Chicken with Fried Rice.
The curry has a thick texture and definitely spicy, but not too overwhelming to the extend that my limit could take. I'm so glad I have chendol with me to ease my throat.

A refreshing Chendol to end off my meal. Mix the red beans and chendol strips well before eating. I love the sweetness of the Chendol.

Goodbye City Square, I will be back soon again.
We left JB at about 3pm after I purchased RM30 worth of snacks.

2D1N trip just passed so fast, it was a very happening trip for us. Definitely a trip with lots of good food. Look forward to another overseas trip next month.
