Meet Miss Anxiety 我的早更女友 Movie Review

Knowing that this is a movie directed by Kwak Jae-Yong of "My Sassy Girl", I have been wanting to watch "Meet Miss Anxiety 我的早更女友". Thanks GF for bringing me to the movie.

我的早更女友 actually means my early menopause girlfriend in English. This was a hilarious and yet heart warming film.

Genre: Comedy, Romance 
Language: Chinese 
Release Date: Thursday, 5 Feb 2015 
Main Cast: Zhou Xun, Tong Dawei, Han-Liang Chung, Zhang Zilin 
Director: Jae-young Kwak 
Running Time: 99 minutes
My rating: 3.5/5

Four years ago, Qi Jia’s (Zhou Xun) beloved college boyfriend Liu Chong (Wallace Chung) plans to work in Beijing and he asked Qi Jia to follow him over. However, Qi Jia declined as she rather stays in her hometown city. 

At their graduation ceremony, Qi Jia dressed up in wedding dress and proposed to Liu Chong in public, only to be rejected immediately - that was the end of their love story. 

She was devastated and suffered from an early menopause syndrome where she has not come her period for half a year.

During that period, she shared her flat with her schoolmate, Yuan Xiao Ou  (Tong Dawei)who was homeless at that time. Yuan Xiao Ou carry a torch for Qi Jia ever since they were schoolmate. 
To truly love someone is when you want that person to be happy, even if you have to let the person go. Yuan Xiao Ou's love for Qi Jia is what that touched me the most. He stood by her side through thick and thin, He accompanied her to Beijing to win Liu Chong's heart back even though this hurt him.

It's always when someone left, then you will realise that you love him. I actually teared when showing the part where Yuan Xiao Ou left and Qi Jia started having the flashback of the times she was with him. It was really touching.

This is a great movie to watch during Valentine's Day.

Birthday Dinner at Tsukada Nojo Bijin Nabe 美人鍋

Just 2 days before my school term starts, I met up with the clique to celebrate GF's birthday in advance. The birthday girl chosen the venue for dinner at Tsukada Nojo @ Chinatown Point. This was my first time trying 美人鍋.

In TSUKADA NOJO Singapore, they serve collagen soup beauty pot made by the nourishing "JITOKKO", and other popular menu in Japan.

Thank you Jasmine for the group photo of us.
We haven't been having such dinner gathering for quite sometimes, because everyone was busy with our own commitments. Finally we squeezed out time to celebrate GF's birthday.

We got a complimentary plate of fries because Terence got promoted to Manager. I am now a Assistant Manager, I will get promoted in my next visit.

The collagen pudding was placed in the pot and it will melt by itself. So cool right. 

The collagen pudding has melted into chicken soup.

The Bijin Nabe consists of the golden Jidori chicken soup, chicken, tori tsukune, winter melon, watermelon radish, black & white fungus, shrimps, deep fried tofu, mushroom, lettuce, cabbage and egg noodles.

We also ordered some side dishes - sausage rice ball roll wrapped with cabbage. It was delicious.

I love the fried chicken with yuzu dressing. It was a perfect combination and it tasted great.

We ordered another plate with the spicy sauce.  The sauce was really spicy, I have to gulp down my cup of tea with just a mouthful bite.

We ended our dinner with lovely dessert from Tsukada Nojo with the word "Arigato" written on the plate. So cute!

We left the restaurant with bloated stomach. It was a great gathering, let's have our next meet up soon. Good night.

Glad to learn many beauty tips from Larry today.

From left to right: Restorative Light Night Moisturiser, Dermo-Hydrating Toner Mist, Micellar Water Makeup Remover for Eyes & Face and Crème Universelle.

Crème Simon Micellar Water Makeup Remover for Eyes & Face

The water-based no-rinse make-up remover gently and thoroughly lifts away all impurities and makeup, including waterproof makeup. Pure and refreshing, with no oily after-feel. 

The texture of the makeup remover is just like water. It ccombines the refreshing coolness of water with the cleansing action of oil micelles, chemical structures that trap impurities and make-up. 

This is a non rinse makeup remover, so just apply and cleanse over face and eye areas with cotton pad. 

My review:

I like the water based makeup remover, it is non sticky and leave a hydrating finish. My skin feel refreshed and comfortable after using it, as though I have just cleansed my face.

Retail price: $55/150ml

Crème Simon Dermo-Hydrating Toner Mist

The light refreshing and hydrating mist removes last traces of make-up and impurities, for a lovely clean and dewy skin without sticky after-feel. Sprayed on hair and body, it has a delightful, delicate scent. 

The toner mist has multi-purpose use. It can be used as toner, hydrating mist and even to set makeup.

Toner: Spray on cotton pad to cleanse face. 
Hydrating mist: Spray liberally over face, neck and body. 
Set makeup: Mist face at arm's length.

My review:

The toner mist has a light fragrance scent when spritz on face, giving me a refreshing feel. The toner is fast absorbed into skin, providing hydration to my skin.

Retail price: $55/150ml

Crème Simon Restorative Light Night Moisturiser

Apply this unique gel-cream at night and wake up to visibly brighter skin.
Concentrated in potent active ingredients, our skin is refined and nourished without excessive richness. Embrace this nightly ritual for rested and regenerated skin. 

To apply daily in the evening/night on face and neck.

My review:
