Dinner at Suki-Ya + random-ness

Both Baby and I are Shabu Shabu lovers, and we are glad that we found an affordable Japanese hotpot eatery place called 'Suki-Ya', which offers unlimited servings of thinly sliced meat. It is definitely a healthier choice from Korean BBQ.

We therefore decided To have a 'TGIF' dinner at their Kallang Wave outlet. 


We started off our dinner by choosing Sukiyaki and Kimchi as our soup base. 



The unlimited different types of meat offered by Suki-Ya are pork, chicken and beef, which needs to be ordered from the staff. There is a buffet counter where you can find a selection of vegetables and standard food items that are normally found for steamboat. The dipping sauces were also available at the counter too. 

The meat was sliced very thin, so it got cooked pretty fast once it was dipped into the hot soup. I personally feel that the meat is very fresh and I love it very much! 



We ended our dinner with matcha ice-cream which was part of the dinner buffet. The quality of the food was decent, as was the amount we paid for our dinner. 


The Singapore Woman's Weekly (SWW) held their inaugural food truck event a few weeks ago in order to celebrate the launch of the newly set up club, 'Domestic Diva Circle' a couple weeks ago. I met up with Jasmine and Meryl during lunch time as we attended the event at Raffles Place. We signed up as part of their club at the site and was rewarded with a free lunch. 


We redeemed very unique items for our lunch, and these consisted of Grilled Cheese Calamansi Kaya Toasties and San Remo Brown Rice Pasta with Sous Vida Chicken in Tomato and Garlic Sauce! Thanks SWW for the lovely treat! 
 

On my recent visit to Tebrau City Aeon, I discovered that the mall has extended their shopping and dining space for their patrons.



 

I love their Japanese Garden Theme very much, and I will return to check out their new retail stores soon! 
  



I finally got to try out the awesome chicken wings from WING.STOP, and I immediately fell head over heels in love with the delectable and delicious chicken wings/drumlets! 


I end my post with a pair of skorts from my dearest mummy during her trip to Taiwan! Hugsss!

[new launch] Yuzu Bath at Yunomori Onsen & Spa

Thanks for inviting me back to Yunomori Onsen & Spa, the very first and authentic onsen in Singapore. I am glad to be part of the launch of Singapore's first-ever Yuzu Bath, which will only be available for a limited time till 31st of December 2016.

 Apart from the launch of the Yuzu Bath, there are some attractive promotions which I will touch on at the end of this post for your indulgence this forth-coming Christmas! 


As early as the 18th century, the Japanese practised soaking in a Yuzu Bath on a winter solstice day, as they believed that the Yuzu bath can help to ward off winter colds and the common flu.


I am surprised by the benefits of having a Yuzu Bath, as i found that it healed chapped skin, while also leaving skin smoother, more radiant and moisturised. The oil within the Yuzu stimulates the circulatory and digestive systems. It also benefits busy Singaporeans who need to work long hours, as the bath will help them alleviate body aches and back pains, as well as improve blood circulation. 


Beside the celebration of the exquisite Onsen bath, Yunomori Café has also offered a Yuzu-themed menu.


We tried the Yuzu Soda (SGD5+), it is a refreshing beverage that quenches my thirst!


We also had the main course, Yuzu Udon (SGD9.80+) which was served chilled.




 Lastly, I had Yuzu Sorbet (SGD4.50+) to end our meal.  


Beside the Yuzu-themed menu, we also tried out 2 delectable dishes from the café.


Japanese Assorted Platter (SGD17.80+), this platter consists of everything you can find from a Japanese eatery place, such as Japanese pearl rice, Teriyaki Chicken, Saba Fish, pickles, miso soup and etc. 


I love the Chicken Karaage Curry (SGD13.80+) very much, as it tasted delicious!

Throwback to early October! The Sample Store hosted a mini tea session with 'Influencers', and the gathering was held at the Sample Store's office, at the Singapore Post Office Center Building.





We had a fun and causal session. Thanks for having us! 




Thanks dearie, Meryl for bringing me to the CLEO Society Exclusive Event with LipHop which was held at Guardian Plus, Takashimaya S.C.

The LipHop skincare range consists of four series - Bye Bye Pores, Bright & Glow, Spa Splash and Smoothie Horse Oil. These exciting new products combat specific skincare needs, and all LipHop skincare products are free from Parabens.

LipHop Smoothie Horse Oil Ultra Smooth Face Serum helps to hydrate skin and improve skin texture. By applying on the face and neck in the day and night, before following up moisturiser, one can definitely feel the difference!


Thanks CLEO and LipHop for the lovely goodies!

I've been using the LipHop Spa Splash Aqua Facial Cleansing Water, and I find it removes make-up easily, yet purifies my skin at the same time! It finishes and removes dead skin, so as to achieve a smooth and healthy complexion. 


Recently, my parents went on a Taiwan holiday with my brother and his family. Mommy got me some stuffs during her trip. 



Among all, I love these the most! The Chupa Chups Lip Gloss (strawberry flavored) which was retailed at NT299. I also gpt a Triple-colored lipstick from Miss Hana at NT199.



At the same time, my lil' sista, Joanne also made her Yolo Solo trip to Taiwan, and she brought back some stuff for me too!. Thank so much, I love them all!
