Pizza Hut celebrates Pasta Festival with 3 new pasta creations

Pizza Hut, a renowned restaurant in Singapore that offers affordable and fresh quality food to its customer.

Little did you know, I am actually a regular customer of Pizza Hut. My family will have Pizza Hut once every fortnightly. We had tried pizza, baked rice and pasta. What makes Pizza Hut our choice for delivery is because of the customer satisfaction, the food is always served piping hot and the staff is friendly.

To celebrate the pasta dedication, Pizza Hut had unveiled Pasta Hut, a special promotion campaign that focuses on rewarding loyal and new pasta fans.

Here I am, at Pizza Hut City Square Mall outlet for the preview tasting of new pasta dishes. Thanks Pizza Hut and Nuffnang for the invitation (:

While waiting for the event to kickstart, I had a glass of Mango Sparkles ($4.20).
A very refreshing drink to ease my thirst as I slurped down the mango chunks happily. 

On the table laid the menu of the day where we got to select our choice of pasta. I decided to choose my all-time favourite - Turkey Bacon Aglio Olio. It was one of the new pasta creation.

Time for the opening ceremony, all of us proceeded outside to witness the unveiling of Pasta Hut.

Senior Marketing Director of Pizza Hut Singapore, Juliana Lim, declared the launched of the Pizza Hut limited-time-only promotion campaign - Pasta Hut. 

For the first time in Singapore, Pizza Hut will change its branding at its City Square Mall outlet from 29 June to 2 July 2013 to give the pasta fans an exclusive opportunity to choose from the expanded pasta menu ahead of the island-wide launch date.

Pasta Hut at City Square Mall will revert to its signage to Pizza Hut from 3 July 2013

The outlet will dedicate its resources to serving mainly pastas during the four-day period. 

To complete the dining experience, customers who patronize Pasta Hut will be offered a complimentary personal pan pizza of their choice with every pasta purchase. Pasta lovers can also choose from an expanded pasta menu, which features three brand new creations including Turkey Bacon Aglio Olio, Roasted Chicken Leg Parchment Pasta and Baked Penne in Truffle Cream Sauce.

We made our way back for the food:

Soup of the day: Cream of Mushroom ($3.80).

The soup was thick in flavour and every mouth tasted so delicious. I really love the mushroom soup and I finished every bits of it.

Our appetizer was here: Sweet 'N' Spicy Drumlets ($6.20), Criss Cross Fries ($4.50) and Cheesy Mussels ($7.90).

Sweet 'N' Spicy Drumlets.

I'm sure everyone is familiar with the Sweet 'N' Spicy Drumlets. It is a must-order for me whenever I had Pizza Hut. I love how the juicy and tender meat is accompanied with the marinated spice. It is flavoursome!

Criss Cross Fries.

The fries definitely taste good. The large waffles size fries satisfied my cravings for crispy fries.

Cheesy Mussels.

The mussels were accompanied with a layer of cheese on top on it and the taste was remarkable. The mussels were fresh and chewy.

Turkey Bacon Algio Olio ($8.90).

The turkey bacon and spaghetti was cooked together with olive oil, garlic and chili padi. Aglio Olio definitely spice up my appetite. For those who prefer hot and a bit of spiciness, this will definitely be your choice. The portion was very generous, nevertheless, I still managed to finish up the plate.

Awesome!

On the other hand, Rebecca and Amanda both had Baked Penne in Truffle Cream Sauce ($11.90).

Wow, it looked delectable as well. I gonna try this in my next visit, the creamy based pasta is tempting me now.

I had another round of drink - Berri Sparkles.

Pizza Hut uses fresh ingredients in creating the high quality pasta. Starting from 3 July, the 3 new pastas will be launched across 25 Pizza Hut restaurants, adding up the pasta selection to 12 Pasta Perfetto dishes.

As part of the dedication to pasta, Pizza Hut will continue to offer pasta lovers a free personal pan pizza with every purchase from the 12 Pasta Perfetto dishes from 3 July to 13 August 2013 at all 25 restaurants.

A very good deal right?

Thanks Pizza Hut for the wonderful lunch. I enjoyed it very much.

Astalift Skincare - Lunamer

All of us love to have a healthy glowing skin.

But many of us are juggling a high-pressure job and an active lifestyle, our skin condition tends to worsen due to the internal and external damage:

Internal Factors
External Factors
Work stress
UV rays
Irregular lifestyle (lack of sleep, diet, etc.)
Air pollution
Insufficient skincare
Tobacco smoke

We can better take care of our skin and maintain the healthy glow with Astalift and Lunamer.

I was here at the new outlet of Astalift located at Jurong East Mall (JEM).

Let me fill you with some background about Astalift:

Astalift is a Japan's award-winning brand that offers carefully researched skincare products with proven efficacy, created by FUJIFILM. Oxidation is the leading cause of freckles and skin ageing, and also is responsible for colour fading in photographs. FUJIFILM has applied its advanced understanding of the process of anti-oxidation technology to create Astalift’s award-winning anti-ageing products.

That is the 2 best selling anti-ageing products - Essence Destiny and Jelly Aquarysta.
Will talk more about it later on.

Not only specialise in skincare products, Astalift also provide anti-ageing and whitening supplements. It supplies our body with collagen and antioxidants to improve the quality and appearance of our skin inside out, from head to toe.

Ready for Lunamer workshop conducted by Jamie.
Say goodbye to dull and dry skin.

We were being introduced to Lunamer skincare collection.

Lunamer helps to eliminate dullness, reduce signs of visible pores, hydrate our skin and let beautiful complexion revolve around us.

Lunamer seeks to strengthen and beautify the skin of busy working women who are in their 20s and 30s.

Lunamer's skincare approach

1. Purify
- Remove impurities (e.g. dirt).
- Counter keratin build-up in pores.
- Protect skin from damage caused by active oxygen.

2. Recharge
- To supplement nutrients and rejuvenate tired-looking skin.
- Boost skin cell renewal

So build healthy skin with Lunamer now.

Follow Lunamer skincare regime:

Step 1: Cleanse and Wash (Double Cleanse)

Lunamer Clear Cleansing Oil removes makeup, pore-clogging sebum and dirt clogged in pores. The Orange Oil helps to purify and tighten skin.

After removing the makeup, cleanse our face again with Lunamer Clear Wash. The Fruit Acid softens and removes aged keratin and dirt in pores. It helps our skin to achieve the translucency and brightness.

Step 2: Brightening

Introducing the star product, Lunamer Brightener, which helps to purify and recharge skin in just one step.

After cleansing, apply Brightener with cotton pad over our face. Use about 2-3 pumps and spread over entire face in a gentle gliding movements without applying too much force. Avoid applying near our eyes area when our skin is dry. It eliminates dullness and achieves healthy skin.

There is no need to rinse off after applying. Just continue with our next step of skincare routine.

Step 3: Moisturise

There are two types of lotions available for Lunamer.

Lunamer Lotion I (Light): For oily skin. 
It delivers moisturising ingredients deep into corneal layer to replenish moisture for a clear, refreshed complexion.

Lunamer Lotion II (Moisture): For normal or dry skin.
It replenishes moisture to achieve optimum water-oil balance while softening and hydrating skin.

They were fast absorbed into my skin upon applying.

Step 4: Emulsion

Similarly, there are also two types of emulsion available.

Lunamer Emulsion I (Light): For people with oily or combination skin. 
Lunamer Emulsion II (Moisture): For people with normal or dry skin. 

They are formulated based on the skin’s moisture and sebum secretion with different degrees of moisture retention. It protects skin from environmental damage and restores moisture.

Step 5: Wrap

Lunamer Cream delivers moisturising ingredients deep into corneal layer to assist in repair of damaged skin and to restore healthy skin. No stickiness after the application and my skin feels silky smooth.

UV Protector (SPF 40/PA+) contains highest concentration of crown sugar which detoxifies harmful elements on skin, preventing  it from entering the dermis.

We should always apply UV protector at all times during the day to reduce the harmful effects of the UV rays.

This is my recommended skincare regime:
Clear cleansing oil > Clear Wash > Brightener > Lotion I > Emulsion I > UV Protector


Besides Lunamer, let me share with you the best selling anti-ageing products at Astalift.

Essence Destiny.

It is formulated with high concentrations of nano-Astaxanthin, nano-Lycopene, highly-permeable Resveratrol, Royal Jelly, skin firming Elastin and Collagen to effectively deliver anti-ageing goodness deep into the skin. 

Use regularly and you will feel the bounciness and suppleness on the skin. 
Once you finished the essence, you can purchase the refill instead of a brand new bottle. Very eco-friendly right?

Jelly Aquarysta.

The uniquely named Aquarysta is derived from AQUA and CRYSTAL, which symbolises the light as water texture of the clear jelly, and the crystal-clear, moisturised skin it brings. 

Remember, use it right after cleansing in your daily skincare regime, and before lotion and emulsion. This extraordinary revolutionary skincare formula targets visible signs of premature ageing: dark spots, lines and dull skin, delivering visibly younger, more luminous and 'replumped' skin.

After all of us used the jelly, there was a small hole in the middle of the jelly. But after 2 minutes, the jelly formed back to its original shape where the hole was flawlessly sealed back. Very interesting right?

Thanks GF for extending the invitation.

It was a great workshop with Astalift. Thanks Astalift for sharing the knowledge on Lunarmer skincare and the benefits of it. I enjoyed myself very much.

The launch of Delifrance Michelin Sandwich

Bread has always been a staple food in my life.
I have it almost everyday for breakfast.

Delifrance was one of my favourite cafe that I loved to hang out at. I love the tarts very much, they are so yummy and delicious.
Delifrance offers a variety of concepts and serves a wide range of authentic French treats, from legendary baguettes and croissants, to generously-filled, signature sandwiches and exquisite tarts, cakes and pastries.


And this year, Delifrance is celebrating their 30 years anniversary of bringing authentic French bakery fare to Asia.

To celebrate this remarkable achievement, Delifrance have launched it's first-ever Michelin sandwich - the Le Paris-Singapore, to thank the long-time supporters who have grown up with the brands over the past 30 years. The sandwich was created by renowned 1-star Michelin chefs, Jacques and Laurent Pourcel from France.

"Le Paris-Singapore" sandwich (a la carte) is priced at $10.80.

To compliment the new "Le Paris-Singapore" sandwich, Delifrance has also created two special sparkling drinks - Pink Grapefruit & Elderflower Spritz (picture on the left) and Le Spicy Mangue Collins (picture on the right).

The sparkling drinks (a la carte) are price at $5 each.

Customer can now pair the sparkling drinks together with the Michelin sandwich for the complete French gastronomic experience at the price of $12.80.

Pink Grapefruit & Elderflower Spritz is an extremely light and refreshing combination of ripe pink grapefruit, subtle elderflower, lime wedges and sprite.

While Le Spicy Mangue Collins is a thirst quenching and interesting blend of mango mad lime with a slight hint of chilli. It is really one of its kind, I could actually the spice in the drink.

I personally preferred the Pink Grapefruit & Elderflower Spritz. It tasted refreshing good.

Canapes were served while waiting for the event to start.
I loved the tarts and macaroons, they were delicious and tempted my tastebuds.

We were so honoured to have Chef Jacques Pourcel here in Singapore to join us in the celebration of Delifrance's 30th anniversary. 

To celebrate this special occasion, Chef Jacques Pourcel will share with us a live demostration on the making   of Michelin Sandwich.


After the demonstration by Chef Jacques Pourcel, it's time for some hands-on and create our very own Le Paris-Singapore sandwich.


We used French Rustic Baguette that was specially imported from France. The softness of the stone-baked rustic baguette adds on lightness and a delicate aroma of fresh cream and sweet almond to the whole creation.

The ingredients needed for Le Paris-Singapore Sandwich:

- Mayonnaise & oyster spread
- French baby spinach
- Roasted chicken marinated with Thai chili sauce
- Pineapple slices
- Wakame (Japanese Algae)

Jasmine and I were having domestic fun in the sandwich making.
Do we have the housewife look?

My end product.

With a mix of artisan French authentic bakery and an Asian flavour, Le Paris-Singapore is an unique association between mayonnaise & oyster spread which bring roundness to the Thai chilli roast chicken. The tantalising taste is then reinforced by the Wakame and juicy pineapple slices. 

Thanks Jas for the lovely photo.
We were so happy to bag home with our handmade sandwich for breakfast the next day.

How can we miss taking photo with the renowned Michelin Chef, Jacques Pourcel?
Gonna thank Jas again for the photo :P

Thanks Malcolm for tagging us the group photo.

We had lots of fun in making the sandwich and every mouth of the sandwich tasted so good. I love the French Rustic Baguette, especially the crispy crust texture.

That's all for my post but before I end it, I will like to say:

Happy 30th years anniversary to Delifrance.
