London Eats

While London life may not be getting any cheaper, the city's appetite for great value food has never been bigger. I set out on a quest to find the must-eats in the metropolis, and came back with far too many eateries to include here. The spots listed below are my top picks, and hope you guys can try them out whenever you visit London :) 

#1 Crosstown Doughnut & Coffee Bar
I love my sweets, and Crosstown did not disspoint. I found them on Instagram and since the shop was very close to my hotel, so why not! I had lost count trying to pick the flavours I wanted to try, but I did particularly remembered the banana cream and chocolate was really good.

#2 Burger & Lobster
I was a little excited to try Burger & Lobster for the very first time. The lobster roll was juicy and delicious. The idea of surging only burgers and lobster is a brilliant. 

#3 Duck Soup
Happened to stumble upon Soho after my shooting, Jas and I decided to try Duck Soup as it was way past normal lunch hours and most kitchen were shutting. We ordered something from today's special menu and it turned out really good. The ever changing menu is a great idea, and guarantees that the next time I visit will find something interesting and adventurous to plunge for. Or perhaps some good wine too? 

#4 Cay Tre
I came here on friend's recommendation and the food are really good. I love love love the banh cuon (Vietnamese steamed rice roll with ground pork, minced wood ear mushroom, and onions along with beansprouts). My friend and I couldn't finish the signature pho's which I think it would be good for sharing. 

#5 Sketch
Bar, tea room, brasserie, library, art gallery and the self-proclaimed most expensive restaurant in London, Sketch is many fabulous things. My friends and I enjoyed a lovely afternoon tea time where we were seated in a beautiful room with soft pink and rose gold decor, and David Shrigley artwork adorning the walls. A really magnificent setting. We were presented a grand selection of cakes and sandwiches washed down with glasses of pink champagne. This Michelin-starred restaurant also have the most futuristic pod toilets which are so instagrammable. You might want to spend your whole afternoon here to enjoy the ambiance. 

#6 Dinings
Hidden gem with the most exquisite food you can image. It is a fusion restaurant of typical Japanese with a modern edge. The addition of truffle in the sea bass carpaccio for example making it divine. The sushi was so fresh that the moment I put in my mouth, I almost cried. I would definitely come back for this one. 

Hope you don't get too hungry after reading this post.

Stay Confident, Stay Beautiful

There is always beauty, if you know where to look. Beauty isn't just what you are born with. It is also about making the most of your assets, toning down any flaws and presenting well. I have always been seeking Dr Rachel Chew for beauty advise when it comes to physical appearance and helps me to maintain a confident and radiant looking skin.

Today's post might interest girls who share similar problems as mine. 

#1 Eyebags that make you look tired all-the-time
Below are before-and-after injection comparison and result after 1 month. With combination of hyaluronic acid filler and slight amount of botox (to relax my eye muscles), I look fresh and energetic. 

#2 Low cheekbone
Dr Rachel gave me a filler injection at the cheek to help me create an "Apple Cheekbone" as what Asian usually called. Speaking from the beauty perspective, it helps to create a more symmetrical look which is deemed more beautiful. 
Dr Rachew Chew is a qualified LCP licence holder (LCP is a kind of aesthetic licence issued by Ministry of Health Malaysia). This is the reason why she is always my trusted beauty advisor when it comes to beauty treatments. If you guys are keen to perform any aesthetic procedures, feel free to visit her clinic at:

Stay confident, stay beautiful.

Joymix Collagen Tripeptide works!

Collagen is the word on everybody’s lips at the minute and there’s a whole host of supplements available, but the main question is whether or not they actually work.  When we are young our skin is able to constantly regenerate collagen, keeping the skin intact. But as we age (they often said women at the age of 25), it starts going downhill. Despite that, I still thought it would be a good experiment to find out whether or not it’s works in restoring my beauty healthy skin.

I did a 14 days trial of JoyMix Collagen Tripeptide, a collagen that claim to be different as they are 1000 times smaller. It can be directly absorbed into intestinal tract and worked effectively with collagen-containing organs such as skin, bones, cartilages and tendons. The image below shows the comparisons of collagen absorption among natural food, conventional collagen supplements and collagen tripeptide. 

 I started drinking Joymix Collagen Tripeptide every morning after I came back from my work trip from Indonesia and London. My skin tone is more radiant now :)

So far having it daily isn’t a chore for me as I will take it together with my other supplements. Easily just take a scoop of Joymix Collagen Tripeptide powder and mix it with drinking water. I normally have it before breakfast. It has a slightly passion fruit flavour that smells just fine for me.
After 2 weeks, I do feel a difference in term of my skin hydration level. When I put on makeup, it is easier to apply or even though I sleep in air-con room, it helps reduce my dry heels. As Joymix Collagen Tripeptide enhances the production of hyaluronic acid that significantly decreases water loss from our body, thus it does boosting your body water level. Think of collagen as a body’s natural glue. It helps to hold skin together, giving it both firmness and elasticity. Overall I feel my skin is smoother and plumper.
There are also other benefits Joymix Collagen Tripeptide offers such as reduce fine lines, support bone and joint health, and strengthen hair and nails. I believe these would show better results if I have the above problems, yet I guess I can’t really show you guys those benefits for now. But you can always check out their Youtube to find out its benefits.

We all know that the levels of collagen can taper off as we age, so everything should be done to help the body to increase its production. Joymix Collagen Tripeptide is now come in a great way to accomplish this, however there are other lifestyle changes you can make to boost our collagen level. Cut down sugar intake, quit smoking (if you are one), and apply sunscreen just to name a few. Collagen is one of the effective substances that our body should be supplemented with as we age, in order to prevent saggy skin and fine lines. Prevention is always better than rescue.
You can fnd out more on their website or visit their facebook page for latest update.
