Hidden Gem: Goldleaf Resturant

The weather has been wet and cold lately. So I thought I am obliged to share with you guys some good comfort food. If you would like a taste of home, something light, something simple but very very delicious, you should really check out Goldleaf Restaurat.

It is a hidden gem at Amoy Street, serving Taiwanese Tze-Char. There is free-flow of rice and porridge. But I would really suggest the sweet potato porridge. If you are lucky, you might even have 2 chunky potatoes in your bowl!

Generally, I think you can follow my orders because I made really good choices. I was only disappointed with at most 2 dishes max. The rest, I am practivally raving about them.

  • Goldleaf Prawn Rolls ($9.80) - For me, this is a pass. It is not bad. It is just average. And i have tasted better!
  • Er Chye (Taiwan Lettuce) ($10) - Honestly, I am never eaten this vegetable anywhere else before. It is so addictively delicious, even though it was kinda of oily.
  • Chye Por Omelette ($10) - If you chee kueh and the dried radish, you should order one. Chye Por is really hard to self-make, so this is probably one dish you can't make it yourself.

If you need something good for the eyes, instagram and stomach, don't miss out the Goldleaf Pork Ribs ($18), it was so frigging good. The sauce was savory and the meat was plentiful! And it is amazing with the porridge (Did I tell you u i had 3 bowls! OMFG!)

This would have been easily been the best meat dish there, until I tried the 3 Cup Chicken. ($15) The thing is I ever had 3 Cup Chicken, and I didn't have my mind blown. But I saw every table ordering one and so I caved in to the recommendations.

And you know what, you shouldn't leave without having it. Even if 2 meat dishes are too much, you must also eat it. This is one dish you can smell the fragrance of it till it makes you droll. (It was my last mains by the way but I still made tummy for it!)

The chicken was so tender and the zap (gravy) was so delicious! I could probably eat plain porridge with the sauce. It is pure gold. Actually, it leans towards the salty side, but it was so flavourful and yummy I just drank it like soup! Hahaha!

And seafood lovers, you can try the crab and the fish. I didn't try them out but given the other quality, I am sure they are brilliant as well. But what I did try was the Seafood Beancurd ($8) You can eat it on its own or with the sauce. The sauce is really good, so good you could eat it on its own as a dish too.

Instead of free peanuts, you can free tofu with ikan bilis and yellow beans. It is very different but I feel very value for money (like got a free main like that...haha) Oh and do try out the Oyster Mee Sua. ($10) Annoyingly, they always sell out in the afternoon, now you know when to go.

Thought you might want to know, the drinks at Goldleaf Restaurant are handmade ($3.50 per glass). I would strong recommend Plum Juice. Desserts choices are a bit limited with Yam Paste ($5) and Herbal Jelly ($4.50). The Yam Paste standard was top notch. But the herbal jelly tasted kinda of like Grass Jelly. Hmm.

Personally, I think this place is under-rated. Hope you all enjoy this secret share of mine. See you all soon :P

Fall in Love with Rouge Jewelry

Just in case you guys don't know, there are a few things trending right now, and they are flamingo, pineapples and cactuses if you are into quirky. If you are into sweet and classy, den you should long earrings that don't dangle.

And so to keep you ladies in trend, I thought I should introduce you to Rouge Jewelry. In the nice, pretty boxes, you will find lots of cute earrings and accessoreis that will make you want to fly to Bangkok immediately. Fortunately for you and me, they ship internationally.

And tada, I have been wearing them quite frequently with my dress from Spruce. (Read the other post here!) Cos they look so good together. Pineapple for something more causal and Pearl Stars for something more dainty! (By the way, do you know pineapples actually mean money come in Hokkien *Auspicious to the Singaporean locals much!)

If you have been following me on my Instagram, you would know I have been wearing these earrings ridiculously lot! I wear it when it doesn't match. Initally I thought the pearl bracelets might make my wrist look thick cos it was so thin. But surprise, surprise, it made them look leaner! <3

By the way, my birthday was not too long ago, can you spot Rouge Jewelry's stuff among the midst? And psst, they have flamingo earrings too. Damn cute. Do check out their Instagram to fall in love and break your wallet? Can we have cactus too already, pretty please?

Home Massage with Season's Love

After I have got burnt, I couldn't really try out a lot of products. Now that it got better, I tried out the Season's Love Lemon Elixir Gel with Massage Roller. I really like the massage a lot so I thought I might be sharing with you guys a little on it (now that I have been using it for about 3 weeks but not very consistently...ooops) Hahah

This products promises certain effects, but for me the more visible part was the firming up and the promotion of skin elasticity. And I think it was because it dredge meridians, promote blood circulation and relive muscular fatigue from the massages. Personally, I was the most excited about the elimination of stubborn fats. (But the effect didn't seem that obvious on me...)

As mentioned the massage is really good and comfortable. According to the manual, you are supposed to do 1 minute to see the effect. (But I do it only when I am free and watching some days a lot some days very little!) Initially, the massage hurt on my thighs (cos I have my lymphatic blockage). But after that it got better, so I am guessing the blockage is no longer there! (By the way, it is not supposed to hurt if you are healthy!)

One thing I noticed about this product was it had a seal. So you could actually twist to close it. And use the roller top as a massage only (Yea!) The gel contains Vitamin C to brighten the skin and also coffee beans, Coenzyme and Vitamin BT which help to decompose the fat cells.

Here's the before and after photos of my thunder thighs. I will still continue to update on this post on the effect. But meanwhile if you are intending to get one for yourself already, I got mine from Redefinesg. The have other slimming products and feminine products as well. :D
