D'King Vegetarian Snow Skin Musang King Durian Mooncake

Wednesday, September 23

Mid-Autumn is around the corner! It's time to buy some moon cake for  your family and friends. I love durian, How can i miss this durian flavor mooncake?I love mooncake with rich, creamy durian meat encased in soft skin... So that it's suitable for elder people and of course children!


1 set : 4pcs in a mini polyfoam box with ice gel x 2 boxes in a gift bag (Total 8pcs / set)
* Polyfoam with ice gel able to preserve the SnowSkin Mooncake up to 12 hours travelling time in chill condition. Suitable for travelers especially oversea tourist from HK or China. All sealed with no odor during check-in flight smile emoticon. 


“Unlike most mooncakes, which utilise processed filling, D’kingz mooncake is prepared with the actual durian flesh. Once the durians arrive, we peel them and remove the flesh immediately to prepare the mooncake filling. If we wait too long, the durians would break open on its own, and the aroma and taste would be lost,” shares Simon Chin, founder of D’kingz. “Last year, our D24 mooncake was very well received, so this year, we decided to go for the most premium durian, which is the famous Musang King. The Musang King was selected for the creamy and sticky flesh, with its strong scent and flavour that melts in your mouth.”


“Another unique feature is its delicate snow skin that is light-textured yet uniquely bouncy. The snow skin also has to be thin enough to emphasize the filling but strong enough to hold it all in. The snow skin is made from a secret recipe which we have created after many rounds of trials. Our pastry chef has nearly a decade of experience behind him and he is extremely particular about perfecting the taste,” added Chin. Check out the video below of D'king's TV interview.

[FOOD REVIEW] Fish & Co, Pavilion

Saturday, September 19

When heard about Fish & Co, you know it must be something related to fish or seafood. Fish&Co is a restaurant which serve fresh seafood in pan. Their dining experience is actually inspired by simple practice of the fisherman. How cool is it huh! Last week, I visited Fish & Co at Pavilion. Large area with beautiful decoration.





Fish & Co do provide lunch meal set with affordable price! I don’t like fish. Or maybe I should say I don’t like fish with bones. I hate it when there’s fishbone inside my mouth. That’s the reason why I love eating at Fish & Co. They processed their fish, take out all the bones, and now we can eat without worrying of a fishbones.


Caesar Salad with Grilled Chicken (RM14.95). Fresh vegetables and juicy chicken with delicious dressing.


Soup of the day, Fish Chowder (add-on deals RM5.95). The very creamy soup.


Artic Fish and Chips (RM17.95). I think this dish is suitable for children! Delicious and finger licking good! 


Mashed Potato (add-on deals RM3.50). I not sure about others, but I’m in love with this mash potato! It’s milky, it’s smooth. For those who don;t like milk might not like this. Hmm...


Grilled Peri-peri Pollock (RM17.95). Okay, there's raisin in the rise. 


Vongole Aglio Olio (RM18.95). The vongole mixed so well with the spaghetti and sauce. Their vongole is big and fresh. 


Grilled Salmon in Cajun Style (RM25.95). Every fish over here is fresh! The skin of this grilled salmon is crunchy! 


Spaghetti Pomodoro (RM11.95). If you lov espaghetti with tomato sauce, this is what you should try. 


Seasonal Catch with Spicy Teriyaki (RM22.95). Yum Yum Yum! The sauce is not that spicy like it gonna make your mouth keep produce saliva and your snot is keep on dripping down. NO! It’s just a normal spicy level foreveryone of you, except for kids.

I'm not sure if this cleanser is suitable for you skin, but it is suitable doe my sensitive skin! My skin doesn't feel tight, dry or comfortable after using it. If you prefer cleanser which do not create too much bubbles. This is what you should try out!

It restores the skin’s moisture balance after cleansing routine, and together with the Witch Hazel Extract, helps to minimize the appearance of pores, creating a smooth, matte, healthy-looking skin restored to its natural pH.

One thing that I really look into it when choosing a lotion is the thickness of the lotion. I hate to apply something greasy and sticky on my face! It's like my skin is creating more oil than it use to be. This lotion is so light and non greasy. 


LIFT AND BRIGHT SERUM
Enriched with potent antioxidants from Ashitaba, this powerful serum targets ageing at the core by infusing nutrients into the deepest layers of the skin to help restore skin elasticity and firmness. Active polyphenols and flavonoids in Ashitaba play a role in preventing the progression of cumulative damage from free radicals and environmental aggressors, particularly sun damage.

Electric Run Presented by Shell FuelSave (Part II - During Event)

Sunday, September 13

Just back from Electric Run Malaysia which happened on yesterday night ( 12th September 2015 ). Electric Run goes global, with events in over 15 countries, and this year is Malaysia turn! The Electric Run was basically a 5k rave that held at Selangor Turf Club. Can you imagine how many people is taking part in this event? There are children, teenagers and even senior citizens is taking part in this event. People from not only Malaysia but also from other countries, we are having so much fun in this event.


There so many food stall over here to provide food and drinks for everyone! Everyone is trying to get themselves some food before the run start. Mao makan apa? Aiya, apa pon boleh lah! Janji kenyang! Too much food until I don't know which to choose.  I just started to sweat the moment I stand in the crowd. Below are some photo that I took during the event. I'm not a pro "camera woman", just trying to capture down the beautiful moment and share with those who did not attend yesterday! Enjoy and please don't judge me! 



Before the race start, all of us gather at the starting point, we dance and we sing together! It's such a wonderful experience for me! We all get even more excited when the dancer in LED suit showing some of his moves! I can't really express how I feel yesterday night! It's really really awesome! I feel so relieve after the shouting for whole night! We bring on the illuminating lights, neon gear, and those crazy bright colors, let's party!









There were so many neon umbrella hanging on the trees. Everyone is taking photos. Who cares about the race. Everyone is enjoying the music and beautiful lights. 





This is the best part of the night! Tunnels with dancing patterns and figures on the walls! Everyone is standing inside the tunnel, screaming and singing around! I should get myself some neon drawing on my room's wall, maybe?  


Who doesn't get thirsty especially after shouting and laugh for such a long time? Free flow of Milo, Red Bull and mineral water is really for us! 



Finally, we finished the 5km rave. Arghh!!! They should make it to 10km! We need more music man! We are so excited and thinking of go back to the starting point and walk for the second round! You must be thinking we are crazy, but who doesn't get crazy on that night? You should join and and experience yourself!


Few more steps and we gonna reach the finish point!


So, I spent 2 hours for 5km. Don't laugh at me. We spend too much time on taking selfie and dancing during the event! 


I hope electric run is coming back to Malaysia again next year. Definitely going to join it AGAIN! I hope you enjoy my photos, and make sure you join if they are coming back again next year!
