#EyebrowGameStrong with Veet Sensitive Touch

Shaving and trimming eyebrows has been a twice-a-week routine to me for more than a decade and sometimes the amount of time I spent to balance both eyebrows to make sure they look perfect is just absurd. And don't even have me mention about trimming each and every eyebrow hair to the same length, quite impossible for people who are impatience like me lol. 

And I discovered this one simple beauty gadget that's just launched is perfect for female like me - urban, modern, always in the rush, always doesn't have enough time, have to keep looking good due to jobs and social network circle, Veet Sensitive Touch has come to the rescue!

Veet's latest innovative beauty gadget for woman on-the-go: Veet Sensitive Touch

Got invited to Veet's Sensitive Touch launching last month and everything were in pink! Just when I thought Veet Sensitive Touch is just for eyebrows, in fact it can remove and trim hair at most of your sensitive skin area such as underarms and bikini lines. Pretty sure Veet is gonna continue owning the status of world's no.1 depilatory brand after they launch Veet Sensitive Touch. 

At the event, Veet has invited Celebrity Makeup Artist - Stevensunny to demonstrate 3 different types of eyebrows trimming + drawing method that suits different characteristics of women. Each and every types of eyebrows are trimmed using Veet's Sensitive Touch and the trimming done in a breeze. Makes me questioning myself of my eyebrow trimming skill right now.

Just while I'm aware of the electronic razor sound made by the gadget, I was told that the razor of Veet's Sentitive Touch is precise yet gentle, and users should be zero fear of cuts due to its innovative razor design. It's detachable heads are to facilitate the different usage of different body parts as well as the length of eyebrows that were to trimmed.

Which one is you?

Besides trimming eyebrows, changing the style of your eyebrows has become easier too! The comb caps that came along with the package, just attached it to the razor heads of Veet's Sensitive Touch, you can change your eyebrows style from Rock to Korean to Bohemian without your eyebrows being messed up.

Tonkatsu Anzu, Isetan The Japan Store, Kuala Lumpur

I guess it is undeniably that our city lacks of tonkatsu(pork cutlets) choices, especially good ones. I've just recently had my very first tonkatsu experience at One Utama and to be honest, I'm not really impressed by the taste of it but somehow that's all what's left for us Malaysian to choose from when it comes to tonkatsu.

Thanks to Isetan The Japan Store, the newly opened restaurant floor The Table (4th floor) serves premium Washoku (Japanese food) prepared by Japanese chefs expertise, so me, Jean and Fei decided to have a lunch date at Anzu, one of the well-known restaurant back at Ginza, Tokyo for serving authentic delicious tonkatsu.


flavorful pickles to prep your taste bud for tonkatsu

Here's what Anzu thinks of when it comes to meal:
In Anzu, we think about the “meal” carefully and thoroughly, while treasuring the material, the dish, the producer, and the region. We aim at creating a place where everyone could enjoy and share the meal while enjoying conversation and time with each other.

With limited seats (about 40), the restaurant atmosphere is quite chill and spacious. Upon ordering, green tea and salad will be serve to guests free of charge.

Salad, sesame for sauce-making (for those who orderd Anzu Limited Ginjo Pork Katsu Set)

You can make your desired tonkatsu sauce by first grind the sesame. I had so much fun with this!
 (with choices of sweet or original sauce)

Besides Anzu's limited Ginjo Tonkatsu Set, there's this limited Service Bento lunch set which only serves on weekday from 11a.m. to 2p.m, 20 sets per day. When we arrived (about 1:30p.m.) I thought we missed the opportunity to try this Service Bento but I guess we're lucky.

Service Bento - RM30

This Service Bento serves almost every washoku variety except for sushi. There's brown rice, chawanmushi, miso soup, katsu (pork cutlets and fried prawn cutlets), chicken karaage (Japanese fried chicken), soba, yasai (fresh vegetables), appetisers etc. Its impressive dish-serving outlook brings me a real taste of Japanese bento. I find the prawn katsu taste good too! Maybe I shall order prawn ones on my next visit.  

Jean's Ginjo Pork Loin Katsu Set - RM48

Fei's Ginjo Pork Fatty Loin Katsu Set - RM55

One bite of these tonkatsu is able to tell the difference of how high quality these ginjo pork cutlets are that each bite leaves you craving for more. These pork are handpicked by Chief Chef of Anzu then matured the meat by their original technique, which make these ginjo tonkatsu premium. Just sprinkle a tad bit of special salt prepared by Anzu on these ginjo tonkatsu, each and every bite is heavenly with juicy and tender meat juice flowing and spread out to your taste buds.

These first class tonkatsu are definitely not to be missed! Anzu's Ginjo Tonkatsu really has opened up my eyes about tonkatsu and I am going back to try their other katsu sets for sure!

Happy 10th Anniversary, Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year!

In one shot! Actually my blog's anniversary was in October but heck I really don't have time to do a proper blog post for it! Really can't believe how time flies and all my blog entries throughout all these years just keep on accumulating and here I am, typing this blog post, feeling grateful for able to keep my blog running for 10 freaking years! Finally there's something I can keep doing without quitting lol (bucket list crossed!)

Talking about feeling grateful, what can be more expressive than handmade greeting cards to show your love ones how much you cherish their existence in your life? I like handcrafted gifts with personal touch, I made my parents cards and friends birthday cards, and I hope they feel the love I have for them from the bottom of my heart.

Christmas is just less than a month away, I guess it's a perfect time to start making things with own hands and show love to others. Here are the simple materials I use for making Christmas greetings card. Gosh I really do love Christmas season so much!

Blank greeting card paper
Water Colours
Spangle Sequins
Pencil (not in picture lol)

And that's about it, easy peasy right? Here we go!

Fold card into half

Draw a Christmas tree on the outer side of paper
Make sure the side of the tree are drawn connected at the folding side of the card

Start painting

More colours

Glitter colours are my favourite

Start decorating the tree!

Apply glue at each end of the spangle sequins and glue it to the side of the tree

Add more details

Cut out christmas tree
Remember: Don't cut the folding part as it is connected to keep two pages intact

Last but not least, write your wishes inside the card and voila!

Simple materials, short time period of making, this is the perfect start for something beautiful that warms the heart of your friends and family. I hope you enjoy this simple greeting card making tutorial I've prepared for you in conjunction of my blog's 10th year anniversary and also my favourite season of the year.

Thank you Spotlight Stores for the spangle sequins that inspired me to make this greeting card and decorate with it. Head over to Spotlight stores to get more ideas and sparks your creativity this holiday season!

Probably I should off to prepare tutorial for Chinese New Year greetings card right now. lol.
