O'right organic shampoo

I was introduced to this O'right organic shampoo by a local salon hair stylist, according to her this is the world's greenest shampoo, originated from Taiwan. 近期试了O'right有机洗发精就立刻爱上它了!O'right是一个来自台湾的绿能环保发妆品牌。从原料,包装甚至运送过程都强调可以减碳。
O'right has a variety of shampoo, each serves different function, but all of them have one thing in common, they are made from natural ingredients, with certified organic foaming agents O'right的洗发精有很多种,有给头皮的,头发的,甚至是给烫/染的头发等等。不过全部原料都是来自于天然成分
I first bought this Tea Tree shampoo to try, it's mainly for scalp care, of course it treats the hair too! And it smells very nice! 我先买了tea tree洗发精,很喜欢那淡淡又很纯的香味
The bottle has detailed information at the back 我想大家用完了洗发精就把瓶子给丢了,对吧?其实我们知道这是非常不环保的,不过收在家里也是没用阿。。xD 但买了O'right产品就完完全全不必烦这点了,因为O'right所采用的塑胶瓶都是100%用淀粉和纤维素做成的,只要埋在土里,里面的成分会化解 (当然需要时间啦),而瓶底的种子就会长成一棵树!这就是所谓的‘瓶中树’!真佩服创办人想得出这个idea!给他大大个赞!!=)
World's greenest shampoo, with lots of 'no', no parabens, no colorants, no sulfates …

Melt-in-the-mouth pineapple tarts

This is one of my favorite CNY snacks, been wanting to bake my own pineapple tarts since last year! :p
Anyway, this is one first attempt in baking pineapple tarts and honestly, it din't turn out to be nice (I mean the shape) cause my dough wasn't 'hard' enough so I cannot roll them nicely into a ball shaped. But thank God the taste is there! 
Now let's look at the ingredients:  (Yield about 100 pieces) For the pastry: 350g butter 100g condensed milk 500g flour 2 egg yolks
For the pineapple filling: 1.5kg fresh pineapple 250g caster sugar
Steps: 1. Blend the pineapple using food processor (I use normal blender), without adding any water. 2. Cook them over medium heat, keep stiring. 3. Add in sugar and continue to cook until the mixture becomes thick, takes about 1 hour.
Alternatively, for faster preparation, simply use the ready made pineapple filling ;)
For the egg wash: 1 egg yolk + 1 teaspoon milk
Steps: 1. Cream butter and milk, then add in egg yolk one at a time. 2. Add in flou…

Favorite CNY snacks

*Thanks for the concern everyone, appreciate them. I am feeling better already =)*

This is interesting! I mean I know most CNY snacks are oily and fattening but I don't really know the actual calories for each of them.

Now, looking at this photo, which is your favorite CNY snacks? Mine will be nian gao fritters, love letters and peanut cookies! But gosh look at the calories!! :0

Speaking of CNY snacks, I'll love to bake some on my own, shall find the time to! Homemade snacks are always healthier, right?

Til then, wishing you guys a happy weekend!


终于打败仗啦~

Was busy with some personal matter last week, followed by sis in law's wedding, all these contributed to lack of sleep, plus the crazy hot weather lately, I started to feel unwell since Monday :( Guess I cannot blog a proper post today T_T
原本想好好生文的。。结果身体不听话打败仗了 :( 看来得多多休息,迟些再好好的写部落了~
Anyway, here's a glance of the bride, my sis in law and her hubby. Finally tied the knot last weekend, wish them a happy and blessed marriage! Too bad I din't get to snap a lot photos of the wedding reception as Aden was super clingy to me that night.... 小姑上星期升级为人妻啦!那晚没能好好吃一顿,也没能拍照,全都是Aden的错!!他真的好粘我啊!而且也坐不静,要到处跑到处摸。。突然觉得我好可怜啊!!呜呜呜~
And here's the naughty boy, been looking forward to dress him up like this, haha xD How, got handsome or not? :p Anyway, 这是我当晚的小帅哥,有帅吗?哈哈!外套是3T size的,结果当晚给他穿时才发现有点紧了!哎哟Aden,是时候要减肥啦!你的肚腩啊!xDD

Time to rest, don't worry, I'll take good care of myself, since CNY is just around the corner. You guys too, drink lotsa water ok? 好啦,该去休息了。放心,我会好好照顾身体的!我还要过年嘛!=)

Aden boy: 20 months old

Can't believe it's about 4 months away to his second birthday!! Time really flies! Especially when you have an active toddler at home....
My super stinky boy!

Little man 'helps' in laundry sometimes, this day he was playing with daddy's shirt, and yes you can tell he was having fun til he refused to take it off.
My little poser, getting more pro in taking pictures these days... xD
His meal and milk time doesn't change much, still with 2 solids per day and 7oz formula milk, with lots of snacks in between. 
Loves the toy cars in the mall and refused to get down, most of the time...
Aden still is very good in following what we do. Hmm but sometimes he's not helping at all... xD
Besides those words he already know (like mama, papa, mam mam, nen nen), his latest words are ball, 'kaka' (insects in Cantonese), 要,'mai'(don't want in Hokkien). Though he cannot speak properly yet, he understands most of our instructions we say
Been thinking to se…

About y's boutique.......

...... is an online boutique based in Taiping, Perak. It's run by a friend of mine, Amanda. I went modeling (sort of...) for her few weeks ago and even though it's very tiring (we shot for 5 hours, and me posing with heels for that long =_="), it's a fun and great experience actually ;)
She has lots of nice January arrival and here I share some of the favorite pieces with you......
这篇纯粹是帮朋友Amanda打广告 :p 话说上两个礼拜做了临时不专业的服装模特儿 xDD

Doraemon secret gadgets expo/多拉A梦expo

So I mentioned I went to the Doraemon expo at Viva Home last week and it was a bit disappointing. Not because it was crowded or it's hard to take photos, in fact not many people that day since it was a Thursday, also the first day of school reopen, I purposely choose this date to avoid the crowd, smart huh? :p
I guess probably because I am not a big fan of Doraemon, it's not that interesting than what I expected in the beginning (or perhaps I was expecting too much? :p)  Ticket is RM 25 (a bit pricey) for adults and RM 15 for kids between 4-12 years-old. And strictly no sitting no touching on most of the Doraemon statues. Even if you stand slightly close to them, the staff will walk towards you already =_=
Anyway, I better don't post too much spoilers, this is just my personal thinking. You might want to go there and experience yourself to judge ;)
Nonetheless, I took quite some photos, and my little man was pretty excited in the expo. Let the pictures do the talking shal…
