My Review
Yum Yum Yum!!! Who can resist Japanese food? Especially Sushi. 

Last Saturday afternoon, I received a bag with 4 types of sushi and 1 appetizer from Sushi Delivery Singapore. Delivery details are written nicely too on the bag.
Delivery came nicely packed.
Each type of sushi and appetizer are nicely packed and labelled. What I like most is that they are very generous with the wasabi and soy sauce. More that what I needed. Also, the packed container looks really beautiful and presentable to me.
Foods are packed nicely.
Generous amount of sauces given.
All the sushi and appetizer looks so delicious and attractive especially the container holding the Mango Maki.
Delicious and attractive Sushi and Appetizer.
So how do they taste? Let me feed your eyes starting with the appetizer. 

Yam Net Sponge Roll (5 pieces)
Crispy vermicelli on the outside wrapping a generous amount of sweet potatoes paste inside.
Yam Net Sponge Roll (5 pieces)
The Yam Net Sponge Roll is still hot when it is delivered to me. The net on the outside is really very crispy. Even when placed on the table for sometime, it is still crispy.
Crispy Vermicelli on the outside and sweet potatoes paste inside.
The roll is not greasy at all. Also, it is full of rich, sweet and fragrance sweet potatoes taste. Those sweet potatoes fans out there will surely love this roll. 
How the inside looks like.
The vermicelli net on the outside balance the sweet taste so it does not feel too tired after eating. But for an appetizer, I personally feel that it is too much. The amount look more like a main dish to me. 😁

Tamago Maki (1 Roll)
Simple sushi rice roll with tamago (Egg). 
Tamago Maki (1 Roll)
I must say that I really love the sushi rice from Sushi Delivery Singapore. They are very fragrance. Rich in sushi vinegar taste and just perfect for this simple Tamago Maki.

In Between my bites, I can taste the light tamago sweetness. Not too sweet thanks to the sushi rice's fragrance.

The size of the Maki makes it a perfect snack for tea break or even when you are watching your movies and drama series.   

Salmon Maki (1 Roll)
Simple sushi rice roll with salmon. 
Salmon Maki (1 Roll)
Same as the Tamago Maki, the rice is very fragrance. Salmon is fresh as well. 

However for sashimi lovers, they may find it no kick as before they are able to taste the salmon, its already inside their stomach. (Never mind, sashimi lovers can always order their sashimi set 😁) But those who are afraid to eat sashimi can give this a try though. I try it on my mom and she is able to accept it. :) Good starter for sashimi beginner.

Mango Maki (8 Pieces)
Sushi Roll with cucumber and Unagi inside, wrapped with Mango on top that is dressed with mayonnaise and tobiko (fish roe).
Mango Maki (8 Pieces)
I love anything with mango. Therefore of all the sushi here, mango maki is the first one that catch my attention.

The maki contain mango fragrance taste that is not too overwhelming. In between bites, I am able to burst the fish roe. And also the crunchy cucumber makes the mango maki refreshing. 
Cucumber and unagi inside the mango maki.
Unfortunately, I can't taste the unagi that is in the maki. 

But overall, all the ingredients blend well with each other. The aftertaste of the mango makes me want to pop more mango maki into my mouth. 

Taiyou Century Egg Maki (8 Pieces)
Sushi roll with cucumber, tamago and Crab meat on the inside, drizzled with sauces made from century egg yolk, topped with chopped century egg, tobiko roes and spring onions. 
Taiyou Century Egg Maki (8 Pieces)
Century egg on sushi??? I am really very curious about this maki. Because after all, century egg produce this mud aftertaste when eating alone. So how does it fair putting them into sushi?? 

Well, to me, after tasting it, I find them surprisingly delicious. The sauce made with century egg yolk is well done and well balanced without any mud aftertaste. It is not too heavy. It is really hard to describe how the sauce taste like but to me, it is a very special and new sauce. 
Drizzed with sauce made from century egg yolk.
The fish roes and cucumber adds to the refreshing feeling of the maki. No mud taste from the century egg on top either. The whole maki taste sweet and refreshing.
Cannot lay my hands off the sushi.
Overall, the sushi and appetizer taste really delicious and refreshing. It is great for parties too as the sushi came very presentable and tasty. I like the sushi rice especially. It taste more fragrance than the usual once I had.

Which one do I like best from the above? Well, I thought I will like the mango maki best given how much I love mango. But surprisingly, the Taiyou Century Egg Maki left such a special and delicious taste to me that I cannot stop thinking about it. So for the first time, century egg wins mango here. πŸ˜…

For those who love to try fusion maki, I think mango maki and taiyou century egg maki will be what you are looking for. Not to worry too for those who love traditional maki as they do have simple single ingredient bite size maki for you.

Last month, I received 3 travel size samples from Daily Vanity to try on the New Lancome Clarifique Dual Essence. 
3 sample travel size Lancome Clarifique.
It is label as essence. But I use this to replace both my toner and essence. I apply only this dual essence before my moisturizer. 

This essence looks transparent in color. And I can see that there is actually 2 layer, a thin layer of oil on top and liquid layer at the bottom. Therefore, it is important to shake the dual essence well before pouring it on the cotton pad. 
Thin layer of oil on top of the essence.
The essence has a light non greasy texture. And there is some kind of light fragrance smell to it.
Dual essence on the cotton pad.
Right after application, my skin feels refresh, hydrated and touches smooth. 

1 and a half weeks of day and night use, it does show slight result on my skin. I can see that it does slightly improve my dull skin. Also, I notice my whiteheads around my nose area lessen.
Before using it.
After 1 and a half week of using it.
Not sure if I have captured the slight improvement properly on photo. But I did really see very small improvement with 1 and a half weeks of using. I am quite satisfied with the result given this short usage period.

Acrylic Pour Artwork
It's been long since my last blog post. How has it been for everyone? In just a few hours, we will be stepping into a new year.

But before this, I would love to share with you a fun and interesting workshop I went to last weekend. You may already know what is it from my blog post title. Yes...I went to Acrylic Pour Express Workshop from Room To Imagine. 

This is the first time I get to try acrylic pouring. I love to do art and craft. So I am really excited to get my hands dirty on this one. 😜😎😍

Room To Imagine is located in Jalan Besar. Erm....before I get to the real challenge, I must conquer this long long stairs monster to level 4 of the venue. 😫😰

This workshop is a great introduction for beginners like me to acrylic pouring. All the materials and the acrylic paints are all prepared ready for use. 

All I have to do is choose colors, put in liquid silicone, pour onto the canvas panel, burn it and tadah.....done. Ok easy to say, I am really nervous along the way. (OS in my heart to myself...correct or not.....just pour?....will it turn out good?)πŸ˜…πŸ˜†

Review: Suisse Programme Cellular Revitalizing Toner

Suisse Programme Cellular Revitalizing Toner (200ml)
Toner is the basic of everybody's skin care routine. The Cellular Revitalizing Toner is the 2nd product I try from Suisse Programme.

This toner works like any other normal toner, refreshing and prepare skin for the rest of the skin care application. It produces some kin of a light perfume smell. Not a wallet friendly toner to me.

About Suisse Programme Cellular Revitalizing Toner
This is a toner from Suisse Programme that provides the following:
  • No Alcohol
  • eliminate all traces of impurities
  • reduce pores
  • balance PH level
  • calm irritations
  • Brighten dull and tired skin
  • moisturize skin
Go to Suisse Programme Website for more information.

How to use Suisse Programme Cellular Revitalizing Toner?
After cleansing, apply every morning or evening over entire face and neck.
My Review
This is my 2nd Suisse Programme product. 

It came nicely in a silver box. 
Came packed in sliver box.
The Cellular Revitalizing Toner is contained in a transparent bottle. 
Came in a transparent bottle.
The cap can be easily turned open with a small hole in the middle to pour the toner out. Which I find sometime, I will pour all over the place. It will be better if it came with a pump. 
Hole in the middle to pour the toner.
The toner has a watery texture . It is non greasy and non sticky. However, it produces a light fragrance perfume smell, which I don't really like. 
Watery and non greasy.
The toner make my skin feels refreshing, smooth and moisturized. It does prepares my skin for the application of the next skin care products. 

However, for a toner that is that not wallet friendly at all and provides only normal effect, I don't think it is worth it. :(

Where to buy it?
Suisse Programme products can be found from Sasa Store. Also found this product selling in Lazada at S$72.They now have Advanced Cellular Revitalizing Toner. Go check it out if you are interested.

Where to redeem samples?

Review: DrGL Solution Hair Anti-Hairloss

DrGL Solution Hair Anti-Hairloss (100ml)
Are you having hairloss problem or finding solution to prevent hairloss? Have you heard of DrGL? 

Recently, I came across this Solution Hair Anti-Hairloss from a brand call DrGL. I have been using it for more than 1 month now. This product helps to keep my scalp healthy and helps lessen hair loss together with the help of hair cleansing and treatment. 

About DrGL Solution Hair Anti-Hairloss
This is DrGL hair serum for anti-hairloss. 

Country: Made In Korea
Suitable: Hairloss
Texture: Lightweight and non greasy

  • Revitalise hair follicles and stimulate hair regrowth.
  • Treat hair from shaft to root by removing damaged proteins and scalp tissues.
  • Protect hair from falling.
  • Promotes blood micro-circulation.
  • Supports the healthy restoration of your scalp and hair.
Go to DrGL Website for more information. 

How to use DrGL Solution Hair Anti-Hairloss? 
Towel dry hair after shampoo. Part hair into sections, spray serum onto scalp. Gently massage. Do not rinse off.

My Review
With natural thin hair, hair thinning and hair loss is a huge problem to me as it is easily visible to me. 

If you have been following my blog, you should have notice that I have been using other brands of hair thinning and hair loss products to help my hair thinning and hair loss issue before I go botah (bald). 

Recently through events, I get to know DrGL Solution Hair Serum for Anti-Hairloss. Just about the right time as I am thinking to try other brand's hairloss product since the result of the current one I am using is already stagnant. Maybe new try can stimulate new results? 

This DrGL Solution Hair Anti-Hairloss came in a very classy green bottle. 
Came in a nice green bottle.
Spray is given when I first bought the product from Shunji Matsuo Hair Salon. The staff helped me to fix it into my hairloss bottle.
Spray for easy application.
The solution itself is pretty lightweight and is non greasy. It is colorless. 
Colorless solution serum.
Together with using this product, I actually went for DrHair Scalp cleansing treatment with also using scalp cleansing products. I have to make sure my scalp pores is not clogged in order for it to absorb all the goodness from the serum. 

I have been using DrGL Solution Hair Anti-Hairloss for more than 1 month now. I have stopped going for scalp cleansing treatment but I still did use cleansing scalp product regularly, 3 times a week to make sure my scalp is not clogged.

I usually use this serum 3 times a week after deep cleansing the scalp. With towered dry hair. Just 2 pump is enough for my whole hair scalp, concentrating at the top middle area.

I did notice my scalp is cleansed and less oily. Also less hair fall and healthy too. 

As for thicker hair, I still did not see results yet. Maybe I need longer usage to see result? I shall continue to use it and observed further. 

The product may be expensive. But 1 bottle actually last me quite long. So it's actually not very expensive looking at how long I can use it. I am around 2 months of using and I have used up only 1/4 of the bottle only. 

Where to buy it? 
DrGL Solution Hair Anti-Hairloss can be bought at DrGL Online Store, Shunji Matsuo Hair Salon at Ngee Ann City and Sephora Ion Orchard at a retail price of S$168.

Where to redeem samples?
There is no sample redemption for this product. But you may may like their DrGL Facebook Page for future promotions.
