[Darlie's products review] All Shiny White Baking Soda Toothpaste +Volcanic Charcoal Toothbrush

I was happy to be selected by the 'Try and Review' program, which allows me to try out on new products and to share my reviews on them!

Recently, I was given a set of the above to review its effectiveness. Note that I was already a user of Darlie Toothpaste before trying out this new product.

After having used it for about 2 weeks, I can now share my thoughts on it!

I am a tea lover, and I drink tea every day. This leaves me susceptible to teeth staining. Thankfully this product acts a really good stain remover, while also helping to maintain general cleanliness and oral health! What I like best about this product is that it helps to create a whitening shield over teeth to prevent future staining!

The Darlie All Shiny White Baking Soda Toothpaste is notas minty as the usual fluoride toothpaste, but it still leaves a fresh and clean taste.

The Darlie Volcanic Charcoal Toothbrush has a dual core of slim tip bristles, which ensures to clean in between the gaps of our teeth, which is o…

Learning Japanese + cafe-hopping

Learning a foreign language is one of my main interests, and more than a decade ago, I started to pick up my first foreign language at Lingo Language School, whereby I completed a 3-month basic course in German. I might be a little rusty but I can still write basic German and do very simple communication in German too! In 2015, I was rather lucky as well as delighted to be selected to attend a 3-month elementary course for Korean, which was sponsored by the Korean company I work for. I still have a hard time understanding what the Koreans are talking about within the company, but I can make small simple talk with them!
Both Baby and I love to visit Japan, and we have been to several prefectures. Our most recent trip was to Tokyo this year, as we used Tokyo as our transit point for my birthday holiday to Hawaii. The most memorable trip to Japan was our Kyushu Holiday in 2018. We flew to Fukuoka, and apart from Hakata, we also visited Kokura (KitaKyushu) Nagasaki, Kagoshima, Beppu and Ku…

Food Tasting at Yue Long Men Hotpot

I recently had a kind invite from Alethea to attend a food session at Yue Long Men Hotpot which is located at the heart of Chinatown. It's always nice to have my lovely bestie, Meryl with me at food tastings.

At Yue Long Men, diners get to savor their own individual hotpot of their favorite broth, but at the same communal experience will be had  as it will be on the same table. 

We were so happy to meet up at the restaurant to warm our tummies up with a wide selection of broths, seafood/meat slices, as well as a FREE-FLOW Xiao Long Baos!

There are up to 9 different broths to choose from, and my favorite was the tomato soup base. It was rich, thick and tasted delicious. Both Meryl and I enjoyed our hotpot very much. Do save some space for your stomach, as you can have an unlimited serving of xiao long Bao throughout your meal! This was definitely the highlight of our visit!

I loved the freshly sliced meat (beef and pork) very much, as they are my usual staple food iems for any hotpot d…

[TeamBridesmaids] Skechers Friendship Walk 2019

The second edition of the Skechers Friendship Walk took place at the Marina Bay Sands, and the aim was to not only bring a fun day of bonding and team spirit, but to also have a 'Hens-Party' Walk for our bride to-be, Tracy! Being a part of #Teambridesmaids, I picked up unique sashes from Kaison, a friendly store which is located at Aeon Tebrau City in Johor Bahru. We wore them for the entirety of our 4km walk around the bay!
Thanks for the passes to Skechers Friendship Walk 2019, and this was my first time at the Skechers Friendship Walk. I was very happy to have been part of this walk, as the bond with my friends was definitely stronger!

Prior to the flag-off, goodies which included Milk and Yogurt were given out to the participants! There were even more refreshments for redemption after the walk! While waiting for the walk to commence, we made use of our spare time to explore the race village to take photos too.

The walking route was a pretty simple route, where we passed by lan…

Weekend day trip to JB, Malaysia

I love weekends! My earrings of the day! I picked up this pair of earrings from a shop named 'Turtle', which is located at Plaza Singapura.

Baby and I decided to go into JB on a random Saturday morning for get some car accessories for our new car 'Blues'. In order to beat the jam, we went in via the Tuas Second link. Oh well, the wait time to clear the Malaysian custom was 90minutes, but it was however much better as compared to 200 plus minutes jam at the causeway at Woodlands!

Upon clearing the customs, we took a 10 minute drive to Gelang Patah to visit Restoran Xing Ho, as they are famous for their Kway Teow Soup. Luckily, we still managed to get seats as the eatery place was packed with locals.
The soup tasted delicious, and both Baby and I really enjoyed our meal. My Classic Kway Teow Soup bowl was packed with generous ingredients and it cost me only RM6.50, while Baby had the Seafood Kway Teow Soup which cost more. 

After brekkie, we drove another 25-30minutes to the…
