Tsubaki Hair Oil Review

Want to know my secret to smooth silky radiant hair?


Its the NEWLY LAUNCHED TSUBAKI HAIR OIL!!

As most of you already know, I have waist-length hair right now, and that is pretty long as many have told me. I wouldn't say it is easy to maintain. But it does helps that I don't have curls as that would be even more tedious to care for.

I don't really visit the hair salons often either as its not really cheap for my hair length and my finances are really tight to be spending so much on maintaining my hair. My daily hair care would be just normal off the rack Shampoo and Conditioner. But my hair is pretty dry (especially the ends since nutrients probably are not able to flow through to the end since its quite long) due to bleaching and hair dyes and on bad hair days, my hair would be dull and lifeless and I'll be so frustrated I'll just tie it up.



Was introduce to try the Tsubaki Hair Oil and was pretty skeptical about using it at first as I don't really like the idea of putting oil on my hair as I dread the oily greasy feeling and it will usually make my hair super FLAT. And past experience of applying some other Hair Oil product had really turn me off especially the bad smell which I really dread.

BUT...... Tsubaki Hair Oil has totally proved me wrong!!

It DOES NOT have the OILY after feel
It DOES NOT make my hands feel OILY after applying
It DOES NOT make my hair FLAT
It SMELLS GREAT!!

Aside from that, it leave my hair feeling SMOOTH and LESS FRIZZY!

Feel really lucky to be one of the first few people in Singapore selected to try it!!

Before Application & After Application
I've used it for 3 days now and I can feel that my hair is really less frizzy now with lesser tangles~

Yuriko Can Cook, So Can You: Recipe - Muah Chee in 8 minutes!!

I LOVE MUAH CHEE!!



Whenever I see stalls selling Muah Chee I will want to eat it. Its selling at $1.50 to $2.00 per small packet, and I always feel like it aint enough to satisfy my cravings~ And so after a friend of mine, May, made some homemade Muah Chee and gave them to me to try, I decided I'm going to make my own Muah Chee too!!

Its REALLY SIMPLE! Inexpensive and fast to make!! So much so that I feel like those stall selling it is a rip off~ But then again they had to pay for rents, so that's understandable~

Due to request from my friends, I'm gonna share my Homemade Muah Chee Recipe with all you Muah Chee Lovers~

Here is what you need; Ingredients:

Serving for 2 (If you need to make more, simply multiply the amount accordingly)

80g Glutinous Rice Flour
100ml Water
1 tablespoon cooking oil
100g peanut/sugar mix (more or less depending on how you like it, dont need to be so accurate for this)

 Can easily get from NTUC at less than SGD$3!

Step 1:  Mix Glutinous Rice Flour, Water and Oil in a Microwaveable bowl


Step 2: Put bowl into Microware for 3 and a half minutes



Step 3: Remove from Microwave. Once done it should be in this sticky form


 Step 4: Cut a portion out and put into the bowl of Peanut/Sugar Mix
Stir it around and coat it fully before cutting it up into smaller pieces and continue stiring it around til fully coated.

Ta-Dah~ All Ready to Serve and Eat!!
DO remember to eat it while its HOT! Taste much nicer, softer and chewier!
When it cools down, it will turn a little harder and wouldnt taste as good.

Side Note: If you feel that it is not soft enough, next time put a little bit more water. I prefer mine softer so I tend to put a bit more than my actual recipe~ =)

The Loft Cafe - Yummy Pancakes! ♡

I have not blogged about any makan places for quite awhile as nothing much really make me have the urge to blog about it. But I finally have a new place that I recently went which I think is worthy of my time to blog about~

The Loft Cafe located at Chinatown~ Its a cafe house in a beautifully decorated shop house on the 2nd and third level and I really like the cozy setting and ambiance of the place! With nice soothing music playing, and dim lightings, it a perfect place to relax and chill after a long tiring day at work especially on midweeks with the one you love~





They serve mainly pancakes and waffles, and I tried the Regular Stacked Buttermilk Pancakes Topped with Apple Cinnamon which I totally LOVE~ Super uber yummy! Its to die for~ the sweet fragrance of the pancakes filled the air around me the moment its being served~ I also had a pot of Earl Grey Tea to neutralize the sweet stuff I ate and its a perfect evening for me! They do have other food and drink on the menu as well, like the all the breakfast, hearty meals, soup and salad, light bites and dessert, milkshakes, coffee and tea, cold drinks as well as beer and wine, which I will want to try on my next visit~

I also learn that they allow for event bookings on their third level living room which have high ceiling. You can probably find out more on their webpage ( http://www.theloft.com.sg/home )

Located at: 268A South Bridge Road (off Smith Street) Singapore 058817
Opening Hours: Tuesday to Saturday 9am to 10pm, Sunday 9am to 9pm, and Monday 11am to 9pm

If you are driving, I would suggest to park at the Maxwell market carpark and just crossed opposite and you will reach the place! Alternatively, you may check their website to find out more ways to get there! :)

1st Live Football Match Experience - Singapore Selections VS Juventus FC

After accompanying my fiancé to watch live football matches on TV, this time round, he got us tickets to go watch a ACTUAL LIVE football match at the new Singapore National Stadium, Sports Hub! Its the very first football match at this new stadium and many people were looking forward to it!

And so, the first match held was, Singapore Selection VS Juventus FC

Since its my first obviously I was very excited and kept snapping photos!! And my fiance was so amused by the silly me he kept laughing and posted in his facebook about how amused I was. Haha!

Final Score for the match was Singapore 0-5 Juventus

I was not surprise by the score obviously. But still it was an interesting match (at least for me)








 










Aside the match, I must say the new Singapore National Stadium is pretty cool and awesome! Definitely wayyyyy nicer than the old stadium~ And the entrance is now all attached with electronic scanners. Also the top shelter can be moved to close on rainy days!! But I guess the food and snack bars are not well equipped for the crowd. They  must have underestimated for this considering this is their first time handling the first match held there. They ran our of beer and hotdog buns at the stall I went, not sure about the other stalls though. The Italians must have been super upset about this!! Beer is like a MUST HAVE for them especially when watching football!~

Anyway I enjoyed myself and I wouldnt mind joining my fiancé to watch another Actual Live match again in future!! =)
