Chotto Matte

Had cravings for Japanese food so I searched Burpple and found a restaurant called "Chotto Matte"
I think that app is seriously amazing! I can totally find all my cravings inside there and it's like an instagram for food. Haha.

Mr. Ming and I went over for dinner. It was quite a small restaurant located at some "ulu" place.
We took the outside seats instead.

Like literally beside the road as you can see. Haha

We asked for some recommendations from the chef as we were not sure what to order.
While waiting, let's take a selfie. Oops :P

Sashimi Platter. Customized mixed platter by the chef.


Nomnomnom..
The sashimi are so fresh and juicy!

Pork Belly (I think?)
Not bad though.

King Oyster Mushroom. Very chewy and juicy!

Main course.
Chargrill Kurobuta with Horenso Sauce
This is really good! Dipped in a special sauce which I'm not sure what is that.
It taste like a lighter and sweet version of satay sauce.
Must try this dish!

Angel's Hair with Seaweed, Uni and Deep Fried Sakura Ebi
This is quite spicy and taste more like a western dish.
The baby shrimps are all over the pasta, like 30% baby shrimps and 70% pasta. 

The services were great, the staff are very friendly and approachable but the location might not be that accessible.
Price wised is considered quite expensive however the quality of food is superb.
Our total bill was about $230 (include GST and service charge)
Previously I had a review on Kudeta's dinner menu and I would say this is much more worth it to dine here than at Kudeta. Just that the drawback is the location, and the restaurant is quite small itself.
I would consider to come back but not so often as the price is a little steep,

Birthday Dinner at Kudeta

Celebrated my birthday at Kudeta, with just a simple dinner with Bf Ming :)
Since it was our first time there, we asked the staff to recommend us some dishes.

Here's what we ordered.
Half Dozen Oysters on Ice 

It's so yummy!

Cripsy-sticky Baby Squid
This is too chewy especially for me since I have braces.

Salmon Sashimi

Spicy Fried Mushrooms
This is really yummy.

Mains
Seared Salmon Black Pepper Coated 

Grilled Baby Chicken Teriyaki 

The mains are cold dishes, (not really cold, but it is not hot) and we're not used to it so we did not managed to finish it.

Next was desserts! It was getting dark and the restaurants do not have much lighting so they use a mini light for us to look at the menu

Not a really good idea as I had astigmatism so it kind of hurts my eyes ):

We managed to ordered two desserts,

Coconut-Pandan Verrine
The foam is actually pandan and it taste so yummy! It comes with a coconut ice cream and the yellow thing as the bottom is really sour ~.~


Chocolate Fondant.
Didn't know that Mr. Ming went to ask the person to do this. :)

Both of the desserts are so yummy. Totally love simple birthday dinners instead of a huge celebration.
Never really celebrated my birthday except for my 21st last year as I find it quite a hassle to organize one.

Would I re-visit Kudeta again? Maybe not.
There is a minimum spending requirement of SGD$80 per pax for dinner which I find that the food aren't that worth the price.
However I might visit that place to chill out and have some drinks at the bar as the place has a great view.

Atlas Medical by DR. SM Yuen: Revlite Laser Toning

Back for my treatment a week after my consulation.

Been awhile since I went for my last laser treatment so I'm pretty excited ;)
Do follow me through my treatments by checking my blog more often!

First I had my face cleanse to remove all makeup (except for my eyes) before proceeding for the laser treatment.
They will be doing the Laser Toning using a machine called the RevLite.
RevLite laser has multiple uses such as for skin toning, treating of pigmentation and even tattoo removal.
What is good about RevLite Laser is that there is no downtime for most of the treatments so you can get back to work/shopping or whatever activities as per normal. 

A picture before the treatment.
You can see I have some freckles on my face which I am quite unhappy about.

Front view.
My skin looks dull too. No radiance/glowy skin ):

Dr. Yuen attended various Korean trainings and skills to suit Asian’s skin. He always put patient’s safety as the priority and treats the patient according to their needs.
It is much better as the treatments are customized based on each individual patient as everyone has different types of skin and problems.

The treatment took about 20 minutes. It has been about a year since I went back for my last treatment so Dr. Yuen used a lower setting for my skin to get used to the laser.
It was a little painful but still bearable for me.

Pictures after the treatment.





My skin looks brighter overall and with constant treatments, my skin will get fairer, pores tighten and reduce pigmentation


Was given two medicated creams to treat my pigmentation and dull skin.

The creams given are personalized for each individual with medical grade active ingredients so the intensity is much higher which you can only get it from their clinic itself.


Gentle Skin Lightening Cream.
To apply a thin layer to the whole face in the morning and at night. It helps to lighten dull skin to improve overall complexion.


Melasma Treatment Cream.
This is to treat my pigmentation and it has to be refrigerated.
This cream is only use to apply areas with pigmentation/freckles as it has a higher prescription to target problem areas. Not to be applied on pimples, etc.

Mocha Brown Hair By Headlines Hairdressing

Oh gosh, my hair looks so yellowish after the red had faded off.

Wanted to get a darker tone to let me hair rest as I've been dyeing my hair in all sorts of light colors for the past... 5-6months (I guess?) which is really bad for the hair.
All thanks to the constant Mucota ABC Treatment that I was able to let my hair dye into so many different colors or else it would be very damaged by now.

Before I start my treatment, lets take a picture.
All faded off

In case you did not follow my blog, I did a pinkish-red ombre for Chinese New Year!
 

Side view.


I wanted something darker so Jerry, my hairstylist chose Mocha Brown as it is quite a popular colour among his customers. It is not too light, nor too dark, just something in between.
In the process of dyeing.
All along I have been using Mucota Hair color and I find it quite amazing because I dyed some lighter shades without bleaching my hair. This is so much better because it does not damaged your hair as much as bleaching your hair.

Next was back to basics, my favourite Mucota ABC Treatment!
(Some call them Mucota 3-Step Treatment?)
(Some call them Mucota 5-Step Treatment?)
This is at step 3, and I'll need to put a steamer cap to open the hair follicles for the treatment to penetrate deep into the roots!

Puffy Steamer Cap! Taken by iPhone.

30 minutes later..

Got my hair trimmed a little and it's done!
Back View.


Front View.


I think I look much younger.

Took another picture under natural lighting as the salon's lighting is a little yellowish.
During the day.

Nice?

Was invited down to Valrie Nailz for my nails to be done.

Valrie Nailz is a home-based nail salon by Valerie located in Seng Kang.
She specializes in gel nails, extensions and 3D nail art.

Here are some designs that she did previously:

Little sheepy~




Christmas nails! This is cute. Haha

I wanted a simple design as my cousin's wedding is coming soon so I request for a french gellish with 3D flowers. The process took about 2 hours and I did soft gel extension on some of my nails so as to get them all at the same length

Here's the end results.
Did a simple design on my forth finger to give a softer and feminine look instead of just classic French.

More pictures:


Simplicity at its best :)
