Confinement food

Confinement is over almost a month now and to be frank, I'm missing the food already, haha.

To me, aunty Lisa (the confinement lady) is quite good in cooking and she has fast hands. But of course, this is my first confinement thus I can't compare much, but I'm very satisfied anyway.

Below are those food and drinks I had during my confinement.

1. Mum bought me Wincarnis medicated wine which said to strengthen the body after childbirth. Besides this, I finished 2-3 bottles of DOM (mixed in food), also chicken essence and Eu Yan Sang american ginseng tea.

2. Sheng Hua Tang (生化汤) to help clear the lochias.

3. So Hup pills (苏合丸) in ginger juice, to dispel wind from the body.

4. Chicken essence soup with DOM, I had a big bowl of this almost every night...

5. My only drinks during confinement, red dates boil with dried longan, wolfberries and other chinese herbs. I like this and already drinking even before I deliver.

6. Pork ribs with black fungus in sweet sauce, one of my favourite.

7. Pork with sweet honey sauce, also my favourite.

8. Steamed chicken soup, yumz...

9. Braised pork knuckle with black vinegar, my all time favourite. Eat alone with plain rice is good enough.

10. I also had eggs after the 12th day, and pork belly with ginger.

11. Soup is a must have, I have tried few kinds of them.

12. Everytime after finishing the big bowl of soup, I would sweat like a pig.. LOL.

13. Steamed and fried fishes...

14. All kinds of greens....

15. I love all of them cause I am a vege lover ;)

16. As for dessert, I had bird nest and white fungus with papaya.

17. Chicken.

18. For breakfast, I usually had misua which is actually quite boring la.. So sometimes I would just eat the ready-pack grain porridge, or milo with cereal.

Not to foget I had a big plate of rice in every meal during the 40 days confinement (luckily I am a rice person). No wonder they say don't think about losing weight during confinement cause it's quite impossible haha. So I listened and ate as much as I could, LOL.
As a result, now I am on my way in shredding those extra fats which is super difficult. Some friends commented I have lost quite alot of weight already but no, I just hide them ;)

Well, determination and patience are all I need. Wish me luck~

    我吃到很爽咯,根本就不会吃到闷,哈哈哈,很好吃hor!加上我很喜欢中药材煮料的味道,所以很ngam吃。
    你的很丰富,好料。
    我的Dom也是喝了3支,但第三支还没完啦,我都是直接喝的,没有煮,煮的都用白酒红酒黄酒。

    我当初为了刺激待产珊姑娘,每天到了吃饭时间都会拍照line她,所以手机里也存了不少月子餐照片,等哪天有空也要po了~

  13. Wow, everything looked so delicious! And you even had dessert... how lucky :) I hated confinement food cos I dislike ginger, pork and anything cooked in wine... so it was a month of suffering for me haha but the good thing is, I ate very little (no appetite at all) and lost weight pretty fast ;)

近期所用的美容产品分享篇

*还没参加抽奖游戏的朋友们,快快按这里吧~ 到今晚10点罢了哦!* (For those who have not participate in the Bangkok giveaway, click HERE before 10pm today!* *帮我的家换了形象,还好吧?^^ *
好久好久没来篇像样的华语post咯! 今天就算牺牲美容觉也得呕出一篇来回馈我亲爱的读者朋友们,我知道有时看太多鸡肠对眼睛不好 xDD 怎样,我抵錫吗?:p
Hmm 近期有用了些我觉得很不错的美容产品想和大家分享分享。
1. Tosowoong pore brush 这是我美容师介绍的,来自韩国的电动洗脸仪。据说是韩国最好卖的电动洗脸仪。用的是0.045mm的nano钎维细毛,最大功能就是能彻底的深入毛孔而清洁毛孔里的污垢,同时也不会令毛孔粗大,效果比平时我们用手洗来的更干净。因为用的是很软的细毛所以可以每天使用,也不会造成什么皮肤敏感等问题。 基本上它的操作方法就好像电动牙刷一样,先将细毛弄湿然后挤上洗面乳,on一on,就可以轻轻的往脸上洗。
上回从曼谷回来脸上突然起了好多粉刺油粒,而且还是会痒的那种,应该是那边的水和空气肮脏,加上喝不够水,又不够睡,搞到毛孔诸塞阿!刚好美容师介绍了这个 pore brush,用了几天后,真的有觉得皮肤比较干净亮丽!不过我并没有每天用啦!有时赶时间的时候,用手洗会比较快 xD 想要更了解Tosowoong pore brush的朋友,可以按这里
满意度:8/10
每次用完后把细毛稍微清洗,然后放在附送的stand上,自然风干就可以了
电动棒也可以’振出’很多泡沫~
这些细毛也不会集水,所以很快就会吹干了
里面用的是一个AAA电池。基本上只要把盖锁紧,整个洗脸棒浸在水里也没问题。 售卖价格:RM 170

2。那天去索取了一包7天装的 Clarins double serum sample,用了一次后立刻爱上它了!!我一直以来对Clarins的产品都有好评。这个也不例外! 它是以油和水所制成的,里面共有20种植物精华,主要功能是抗老,减少皱纹,缩小毛孔,紧实肌肤,让肌肤有弹性。 我一直相信抗老必须从早做起所以在还未迈入‘3张’就必须打好基础,呵呵~

包装里有两种精华分别是水性的和油性的。把两种精华混合在一起,轻轻往脸上压和拍打就可以了,不需要刻意…

BFF trip to Bangkok 2013: The food post

Bangkok is not only a heaven for the men shopping but also food! I've actually Google and blog hopping beforehand to see what's worth to eat at Bangkok, can only chose the most popular ones as we were there for only 4 days 3 nights, a very rush trip.
I've filtered out those food we ate during the trip which I think worth mentioning.
@ Food court, Platinum Mall Green curry chicken rice
Beef noodles
Fruit crepe
The food court is so big here in Platinum Mall, hundreds of tables are provided but almost all are occupied.

Dessert @ Swensen, Platinum Mall

(pale looking face, first day after touching down) Swensen is not in my itinerary, we decided to go here instead of Mr Jones Orphanage at Siam Center cause of the location. Siam Center is further away from where we stay, but Platinum Mall is just about 10 minutes walk from the hotel. End up, no regrets! Much cheaper and yummier compared to Malaysia.

T&K seafood, Chinatown  (It's easier to get here by metered cab)





By far…

2D1N Hatyai trip

I have been to Hatyai many times and I am not bored of it yet, haha!! xD
It's one of my favorite place to go, I mean considering the fact that I can't really travel oversea at the moment (no money and no time).
But traveling to Hatyai is still consider 'oversea' la right? 😆 It's just that we go there by car instead of plane.... Just 2 hours plus to reach kastam, almost like from Taiping to KL.

We had a short getaway to Hatyai last month, it was 2 days after the Songkran festival. We tagged Aden and Toby along so hubby suggested to avoid that festival.

Journey was smooth from Taiping all the way to the kastam, just the queue at the kastam was a bit tiring. We managed to check in early, lucky!

We stayed at Grand Pink hotel, I simply love this hotel because the room is big and clean! Staff service is nice too! Highly recommended, heard it's been refurnished lately. It's located next to Lee Garden Plaza so it's easy to find!
I also love the spacious bathro…
