Resto Surabaya In Far East Plaza

Resto Surabaya have opened its second outlet in Far East Plaza. It seems to be popular among the indonesian chinese friends and also the malay community. Price was reasonable and I ordered 3 dishes. Beef, Ayam Penyet (Deep Fried) and their sour soup.

Food was generally alright with their specialty chilli sauce. The chilli sauce was spicy and shiok. Sour Soup tasted abit weird to me, it tasted sour, sweet... I don't know, it just really doesn't suits my taste. I like the crunchy bits of the Ayam Penyet. it was really VERY CRUNCHY! YUMMY!

Would I go back to this place again? Maybe. I would love to try other dishes. Overall, I would give them 2.8 stars out of 5.

Superdog - Singapore

Picture from

I realized I have fallen in love with this fastfood, Superdog. I am quite sure not many have heard of them cause they do not have many outlets in Singapore. So far, as I what I know, they only have 1 in Pasir Ris E Hub and 1 in vivocity. Anyway, it was quite shiok to "smuggle" Superdog into the cinema and enjoyed it slowly while I watched the show. Haha.. I ordered a Chilli Cheese Hotdog and topped up with fries and drinks. I believed this fast food was a craze for young people as I see many youngsters. The fries was crunchy and not oily, the hotdog was piping hot and yummy.

Perhaps next time I shall try their handgrilled burger? Instead of popping popcorns into your mouth the next time, why not try Superdog? :)

Bei Shan Chuan Spicy Steamboat Restaurant - Vivo City

I was at Vivocity on saturday and happened to see this banner placed near the escalator stating buffet steamboat for only $13.90++ with DBS cards (UP $16.90 on weekdays and $18.90++ on weekends).

Well, I decided to explore this steamboat restaurant. It took me about 15minutes to find the restaurant as it was located one corner at the 3rd level. As you know, Vivocity is SO Big.. I had a hard time looking for the restaurant until I smell the fragrant of the steamboat near Daiso. I traced the smell and finally I found the restaurant! I reached the restaurant before 5 pm and it was not packed with people yet. I found a good spot where I can enjoy eating my steamboat and at the same time admire the scenery outside.

To my surprise, I was quite disappointed with their varieties as there weren't much choices to choose. They don't even have meat balls. Food replenishment were slow too. Service was not good either.

I saw one of their male staff shouting at a customer in mandarin," Boss, Do you know you are blocking my way? How do you expect me to go over when you stand there?" The customer just replied, "Oh, I am so sorry." If the person he shouted at was me, I would definitely make a complain to their manager. I finished my meal around 6.30pm and when I was about to eat ice-cream, they had NO MORE ICE-CREAM. When I asked for a refill, they told me they had ran out of ice-cream for the day. How could it be possible when it was just only 6.30pm? The crowds were still queuing and filling into the restaurants.

Although Bei Shan Chuan Spicy Steamboat really have a lot to improve, they still have their plus point. The food were fresh and prawns were of reasonable size. Soup base was quite okay. The temperature of the aircon was also good to have steamboat, because I did not sweat while eating the steamboat. Keke... but i heard the aircon will be turned off after 9.30pm. Overall, I give this restaurant a 3 stars for ambience, 2 stars for food and 1 star for service. Would I consider to go back to this place again?Maybe, if they still have the promotion.

Reviews On

I know many people including myself are quite skeptical to buy beauty products online especially when that particular brand is selling much more higher in the market. Few weeks ago when I stumbled into, I was quite overwhelmed with the lower prices they are offering. Was the products real or fake? I tried to find an answer online, so far I did not see any negative review on it. Anyway, I was quite tempted to buy because of their cheap prices so I decided to try it out myself.......................... Well, $50 purchase comes with a free delivery.. I browsed and chose two items that cost a total of $51. Everything was smooth and easy... Finally,Transaction Successful!!! It stated CASH ON DELIVERY and should arrive before 5pm the next day.

Cool Enough!!! The stocks arrived before 12pm the next day and to my surprise, they gave me a clinique cosmetic pouch on my first purchase. What do I have in my bag? 3 jars of Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief( 15gram each jar) and 2 Dior Show Mascara Black Out(4gram each). I suddenly realize that sample sizes packaging products are better. WHY? It was because the beauty products can keep its freshness better than the normal size especially products like mascaras can dry up so easily.

So how about the quality of the product? Basically, there are no difference from the products that I bought over the counter. Everything was the same. Clinique Moisture Surge absorbed very quickly and smoothly into my skin. Most importantly, I did not get breakouts and best of all I CAN SAVE MONEY! Would I still continue to purchase products from them? DEFINITELY! :)

Miss Universe - Miss USA Falls Again!

Miss Universe 2008 crowned goes to " Miss Venezula", Dayana Mendoza. This 22 years old beauty queen beats runners-up from Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Russia and Mexico.

This time, Miss USA 2008, Crystle Stewart fell down on the stage during the Miss Universe 2008 in Vietnam. Last year, Miss USA 2007, Rachel Smith also fell down on the stage. Both lost their footing during the evening gown glamour. Although Miss USA 2008 fell down on the stage but at least she tried to mask her embarrassment and disppointment by standing up with a big smile and clapping her hands after the fall. I guessed her courage still deserve the audience a clap.

Koo Kee Dumpling & Ramen House

Soup Of The Day
Deep Fried Chicken with their special sauce
Claypot Toufu
Cod Fish
Dessert Of The Day

This was my first time at Koo Kee Dumpling & Ramen House. I am not so sure about other outlets but I am quite satisfied with their Century Square Outlet. We got ourselves stumbled into their restaurant because of their friendly service and of course, their set meals look reasonably affordable. Haha.

I guessed we are too early for a dinner, there wasn't many people at the restaurant. So, after browsing the food menu, we decided to try their set meal at the price of $40++ for 2 pax. Total Damage was around $55 with gst and service charges.

Set Meal Include:
Soup of the day (Winter Melon with spare ribs and red dates, Very Good)
Deep Fried Spring Chicken with special sauce (signature dish) (Good!)
Vegetables in Oyster sauce (A bit too salty)
Claypot Doufu (Beancurd) (Ok!)
Steamed Cod Fish with sauce (Good!)
Dessert Of the day ( We got crunchy aloe vera with jelly, very cooling and nice)

Overall, the food should be well liked by chinese because it is not too oily. A place that is worth visiting. Will I go back there again? Of course... Rating: 3.5 stars out of 5.

Rent A Designer Bag -

Would you choose to rent a designer bag for a week or would you spent thousand of dollars to buy a new bag? Which one would you choose? Well, I have never tried to rent a designer bag but I think this niche business is good for people who wish to own an authentic designer bag for a short period of time. I think it is suitable for people who are always rash in buying stuffs or people who have limited budget to purchase a designer bag. I have many friends who bought a new designer bag in a moment of folly and was regretted on their choices. For a fraction of the cost, you can borrow an authentic designer bag for less than $40 a week. Prices are ranging from less than $40 to more than $100 a week, depending on the brand and design.

So, Would you rent or buy? :)

Nihon Mura - Pasir Ris E Hub

Nihon Mura have a few outlets in Singapore. So far, I have tried the food at Revenue House and also Pasir Ris E Hub. In terms of quality of the food and service, I think Pasir Ris would be better. The first time I ate their sushi buffet was at Revenue House. There were not much choices and the food did not fare well too. So, the second time I visited Nihon Mura was at Pasir Ris E-hub, their alacarte food would be a better choice than their sushi buffet. Hence, if you are thinking of going to Nihon Mura, I would advise you to try their alacarte menu more than their sushi buffet.
