Baba Low's 486 @ Bangsar


Hello everyone!

How have you all been?

I miss you all =D

I really do miss blogging and getting in contact with you all.

***Sending out LOTS of HUGS***

***

A little while back, I had the opportunity to try some of our local nyonya cuisine.

***Drooling just thinking about how it tasted like***

The very famous Baba Low's 486 which serves Peranakan food
is now available for us KL folks to enjoy.

Baba Low's 486 is located at Lorong Kurau, Bangsar.

I find Lorong Kurau to be a nice and cozy place,
hidden away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
A wonderful place to enjoy a nice quite meal.

Now we do not need to travel all the way to Melaka to enjoy Baba Low's mouth watering food =D


Very laid back and simple interior.
Because of it's simplicity, it does give me a very homey traditional feeling.


Their menu spread.
Old school black board and chalk writings =D


And for those who have problems visualizing the awesome dishes,
they also provide pictorials.

Yay! I love menu with pictorials,
especially if it is your first time there,
pictures really help.
Ooo..and little stars or small chef hats to signify recommend
dishes are also always helpful =D


Some of their mains



Nyonya Laksa RM 7

Delicious bowl of warm goodness!
Very appetizing bowl of noodles that will bring out your appetite.

This Nyonya Laksa does not have the especially thick soup base.
I rather enjoyed the citrus taste of the laksa which comes from lime,
it does give the bowl of laksa a refreshing taste.  


Popiah Kulit Telor RM 4

Popiah is a wrap containing turnip, cucumber, bean sprout, coriander, shredded eggs.
The popiah skin is like a really thin but soft version of crepes.

I find the popiah to be so so only but still consider to be good.
Not too salty or too wet that it will break the popiah skin.

Mee Siam RM 6

Delicious spicy fried beehoon served with
shredded eggs and cucumber with fish cakes.

If you are a fan of spicy, you have to try this =D

* I do recommend to eat it while it is hot,
otherwise it will not taste as good


Tauhu Sumbat RM 3.50

Tauhu Sumbat literally translate to stuffed tofu.
Fried tofu stuffed with cucumber and turnip strips,
drizzled with a sweetish chilly sauce.

Personally, I found the dish to be slightly bland,
however, the tofu is fried to the optimum texture which is quite nice =D


Mee Goreng Nyonya RM 7

Nyonya styled fried noodles served with shredded eggs,
pineapple/cucumber sambal salad.

I actually quite enjoyed this dish.
Because it is nyonya styled, it has a pinch of sweet sourish taste to the noodles
which I rather enjoyed.


Cendol RM 4.50

Thirst quenching mouth watering bowl of shaved ice
drizzle with coconut milk and gula melaka!

I absolutely love their cendol.
For me it has just the right amount of gula melaka,
not bland not too sweet.

Ahhhh... Just perfect for the humid Malaysian weather!

***

I would definitely recommend this place if you are looking for
some good local peranakan cuisine that is gentle on your wallet =D

My must have pick: 
Nyonya Laksa and Cendol

Maybelline Hypersharp Liner Laser Precision Eyeliner


Hello beautiful people!

How is your July coming along?

Going well, I hope =D

***


My eyeliner smudges...
It clumps...
It is so so difficult to remove my liner...
It is so frustrating...

Ever get those eyeliner troubles?

Well, you might not need to go through those things again

***

Today, I will be introducing Maybelline's latest liquid eyeliner.

Out of all my make ups, for me the eyeliner is the most important.

The eyeliner is after all used for beautifying our eyes 
the window to our souls =D


Introducing Maybelline Hypersharp Liner Laser Precision Liner

Like the name suggested, the liner itself has a sharp tip, 
which makes it easier to reach to the corner of the eyes.

On top of that, it is so smooth, that it just glides across the eyelids,
therefore, it does not clumps nor does it crack!
***Super plus points for this***

 Having a great eyeliner is crucial in my daily make up process.

Because I have such small eyes, 
I have to make sure my eyes are still visible when I laugh =P


This eyeliner comes in 3 different colors
Brown...Black...Soft Black

       It's main features
  • 0.01mm precision 
  • 24 hours Smudge-proof 
  • Easy Removal

After testing it for the past week,
I must say
this liner is true to it's claims!
 
Price: RM35.90


I usually always wear black eyeliner and never have tried other colors,
but this time around I was given the brown liner to try.

I have to say,
I absolutely love the brown liner.

It is a much softer color compared to black,
which is great for the every day make up 
because the natural look is always the best no?
hehehe =D


 Can't see the eyeliner much...
Small eyes that's why...
hahahaa.


The tip of the eyeliner is only 0.01mm wide...
No wonder it was so easy to draw my eyes.


Another concern about eyeliner is that after a while, it smudges...

And when it does... 
Gosh, it is like we girls just got punched in the eye.
hahaha!

But, after I used this liner , 
I do not have to worry about smudging.
I wore it a few time for more than 10 hours and 
it is still in good condition without any smudges!


You can go check them out ya=D

*Big smile*

Yay! I have an awesome eyeliner =D

Go visit your nearest Maybelline counters and get your hands on this awesome liner!

Skin Whitening Wonders with L'Oreal Whitening Day Cream



Hello all you beautiful people!

I know I said I will be posting more frequently
but I have failed to do so, I do apologies.

I just started out a new job and managing many other things at the same time.
Phew... Hectic..Hectic... 

About work, finally started a corporate like job
where I get a lanyard with the access card attached for the first time.
Really can't stop finding an excuse to use it.
New toy.

But that thing also is my punch card...So not so fun after all =(
More on that in a another post 
*Gosh...So much has happened*

***

Today, I want to talk about having fair skin.

I think most girls...
vain girls like me me me all want to have 
flawless fair skin like those Korean actresses.

Some people want results fast that they result to 
getting injections to lighten skin tone.

I do not disagree with this method 
(I might want to try it out someday...might...)
but it is costly because of the repeated sessions that you have to go to maintain it,
not to mentioned the potential harm it may bring...

However, you can actually do a lot of things to 
help your body get a fairer skin tone =D


So, what can you do???
  

1. Increase your Vitamin C intake!

Daily dosage of vitamin C will not only help with your immune system,
it will help increase your skin's color and suppleness.
Besides that, it helps with the prevention of saggy skin and wrinkles.

You can get vitamin C from fruits and vegetables, 
especially from citrus fruits like oranges, lemons.

It is suggested that we take 500mg of vitamin C a day,
that is like 5 serving of fruits and vegetables.

If you do not eat so many serving,
taking a Vitamin C supplement is a good alternative.
*I take my daily dose of it =D*


2. Drink Lots of Water

We all know that majority of our body is made of water. 

Our skin the largest organ in our body is 
made up of approximately 64% of water 
(Credit: http://water.usgs.gov/edu/propertyyou.html)

So, we must drink enough water to main it's hydration and not dry out.
It will help with the renewal of your skin. 


3. Have a Healthy Diet 

Credits: www.amazingfitnesstips.com

I think everyone knows that having a healthy diet is key in having a healthy body.

Taking in the right foods will ensure that our body gets the right
nutrients to allow it to repair itself.
This means that our skin will become much nicer as our diet changes.

Try to eat as much fresh fruit and vegetables as possible 
(especially those high in vitamins A, C and E) and 
stay away from processed, high-calorie foods.

Love your body and it will love you back =D

***

All the above are extremely important for us to be able to have
good and potentially fairer complexion.

I agree that the internal care of our skin is the core importance
however, is our bare skin equip to defend against all the harm it faces everyday?

That is why it is important to invest in a good sun block/day cream.

I do apologize for my absences.

I have been caught up with all the wonderful happenings in life.
Some good...Some not so good...

But, we are constantly learning no?
Hehehehe...

Even if you don't, you will fall in love with it after having a taste here =D

They serve freshly made udon in a variety of styles,
from the traditional cold udon to the western fushion udon.



Their menu 

If you really do not want udon, they also serve rice as well.


Here we have their classic udons.

You can have a choice of cold or hot udons.


Besides udon,
they also serve plenty of other food.


I had their 
Soboro - Minced chicken with tare sauce and onsen egg - RM 9

Just had to try it because it is the chef recommendation.


This is absolutely a mouth watering bowl of udon.

The udon is so firm that it gives a nice texture for you to chew on.
Plus, the minced chicken sauce is absolutely delicious!
Flavors are well combined and it gives a wonderful satisfying taste in every bite.

*if you love your Hakka noodles, you will definitely love this bowl of goodness*



Creamy Mushroom
Marufuku's very own version of the Cabonara
RM 9

I did not get a chance to try it but my friend said it was delicious.
He mentioned that he could eat this every day! 


Chicken Katsu 
Deep fried chicken
RM 3


Sliced Beef

Along with our udon, we ordered some add-ons.
How can we resist not ordering some side dishes right =P

The sliced beef is a must order if you are ever there,
it is just little saucer of heaven.
The beef so tender that it almost melts in your mouth.

Although, I did find the sauce a tad too salty
otherwise it was delicious.
