Unboxing my new toy - Clarisonic Mia 2

My Clarisonic Mia 2 has finally arrived in the mail today!

Unboxing the parcel containing my Mia 2
If you're not sure what Clarisonic is, it's some sort of an electric toothbrush for the face. Lots of beauty bloggers are swearing by it for clean and clear skin!

Skinfood Goldkiwi Hydrating Mask review

The bunny has gotten her hands a whole box of Skinfood mask samples. Actually, it was a gift with purchase with some magazine at the start of this year. I've totally forgottened about the box till now.. To start off, I tested out the Goldkiwi Hydrating Mask.

Ippudo @ Westgate

Lunch today for the bunny was at the newly opened branch of Ippudo, at Westgate. I had previously wrote a pretty scathing review on my visit to the Ippudo at Mandarin Gallery, but I was really looking to test out the standards at Westgate (also, never underestimate the persuasiveness of your colleagues).

Our entourage arrived at the mall at about 12nn. Even then, a queue was starting to form. 
The bunny and colleagues were the 5th or 6th in the queue. We waited for slightly under 30 mins before we were seated.

Muchos Mexican Bar & Restaurant @ Clarke Quay

The hubby and the bunny were in the vicinity of Clarke Quay, though I can't remember what for exactly (having a spot of amnesia here). The bunny decided that dinner was Mexican food, so we dropped by the nearest Mexican restaurant we could find.

Dr. Morita EGF + Platinum mask review

The Dr. Morita EGF + Platinum mask was part of the bunny's loot back during the Watsons member sale in Oct, but I've only opened and used the mask recently.

Mandom Corp Warehouse Sale

Mandom Corp is having their warehouse sale on 4-5 Dec 2013! Items are now up to 80% off!

Mandom Corp entrance at Great World
The bunny was there earlier to join in the crowd (it's really packed!) and picked up lots of loot! Brands like Gatsby, Dollywink, Lucido-L, ROC, Bifesta and Heroine Make are all under Mandom and were at the sale!

Telemarketers don't call me! Protect your personal data

The bunny often gets calls and SMS messages by strangers to promote their products and/or services.  If "Hi, this is so and so calling from XYZ company and you've been specially selected to take up our product trial/ low interest loan/ new insurance plan..." blah blah, sounds familiar and you hate it as much as me, you will want to read on.

Lady M @ Marina Square

The Mille Crepe is a cake that this bunny is particularly fond of and Lady M Confections, the pioneer of such cakes has opened its doors at Marina Square. Hence, the bunny and the hubby decided to skip dinner last Sunday and headed to Lady M for to satisfy our sweet tooth.

The place is decorated simply with white as the main color theme. Clean and minimalistic describes the look and feel.

Uncle Leong Seafood @ Jurong East

One of the bunny's colleague recently left the company and his farewell dinner was at Uncle Leong's Seafood. The branch at Jurong East was newly opened and just a stone's throw from our office, hence, the choice for our dinner.

Bunny's most hated SG drivers

With Car Car approaching one and a half years old, the bunny had also transformed from a mild mannered driver to a full-fledged, foul mouthed, profanity uttering driver on Singapore roads.

I'm sure all or most drivers have their own list of what irks them the most, and here's the bunny's pet peeves on the road.

Jamie's Italian @ VivoCity

The now official hubby has decided to make an appearance again by writing the post for Jamie Oliver's restaurant, Jamie's Italian at VivoCity.

The hubby thinking of what to eat at Jamie's
We finally made it to Jamie's! It was packed as usual for dinner and we managed to get a seat in 30mins (the usual wait can be up to 2hours!) Thank goodness for the SMS system that's in place. Just leave your phone number and the staff will send you an SMS once a table is available to you.

Dinner invite by The Lawn @ Shenton Way

Think salad and the first thing that comes to mind (at least for this bunny) will be plain boring greens. Well, The Lawn was set up to change this particular perception. The bunny visited the 2nd outlet of the not-so-usual salad bar, located at AXA Tower, with the hubby, at owner Jonathan's invitation. Oh my, looking at the offerings, the bunny was really spoilt for choice!

Review on Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Light Lotion & get your FREE samples!

The bunny had already started using Hada Labo's products when they started in Singapore about 2 years ago, so I was thrilled that the nice folks at sent over the SHA Hydrating Light Lotion.

The happy bunny on receiving the Hada Labo SHA Hydrating Light Lotion
The Hada Labo range is manufactured by Rohto Pharmaceutical Co. Japan and The Mentholatum Co. It's really popular - 1 bottle is sold every 2 seconds in Japan!

The Chop House @ Vivocity

The Chop House has just opened its doors at VivoCity, #01-161/162. The place is a more affordable version of the premium steakhouse, Wooloomooloo, so the bf (now husband) and the bunny jumped to sample their wares. Again, it's another one of those really packed weekends and this bunny was lucky to get the last seat for 2.

Krispy Kreme opens in Singapore @ Tangs Orchard

Krispy Kreme has finally opened on Singapore shores! The official opening was yesterday, but the bunny decided to give that a miss since the queues were expected to be super duper lengthy. In fact, Krispy Kreme even posted a guide to happy-queuing for launch day on their Facebook page.

Picture from Krispy Kreme FB page
So, the bunny decided to head down to Basement 1 of Tangs Orchard today instead. I really couldn't wait any longer for my doughnut fix!

Gals nite out @ Fukuichi, TripleOne Somerset

The bunny was first introduced to Fukuichi by a vendor who provides warehousing solutions. They have the same parent company as Fukuichi that specializes in cold room facilities and logistics among others. The business processes fish, freezes them and exports them to Japan. Hence, Fukuichi was born as an extension to that function.

Since my vendor promised me a discount whenever I dine at Fukuichi (not sure if he was jesting), I brought Rena and Liz to the restaurant, #02-11/12, TripleOne Somerset for our catching-up session.

Gold Bio-Collagen Facial Mask review

While shopping at, the bunny noticed a queer looking mask. The mask is formulated with gold and promises a whole host of benefits for the skin. Before the angel and devil in my head could argue it out, I had the mask added to cart and shipped to my home.

Gals nite out @ LeVel 33, MBFC Tower 1

Sometime back, I met up with Liz, a friend that I haven't seen in ages. On the spur of the moment, we decided to head to LeVel 33, Singapore and the world's highest urban craft-brewery, located at the 33rd level of MBFC Tower 1. This was before the bunny headed to Hong Kong, so this post is long overdue.

Sephora Natural Therapy Job's tears mask review

The bunny got a mailer from Sephora on their new range of Natural Therapy masks and it looked really yummy with the vibrant colors that pop. The masks comes in 10 types - Avocado, Green Tea, Ginseng, Honey, Red Pomegranate, Rose, Lotus, Pearl, Job's Tears and Lingzhi. Apparently, Singapore is the first to launch the masks in South East Asia.

Emailer from Sephora on the Natural Therapy Masks
Since the bunny was out shopping today er.. yesterday, I got myself a piece of the Job's tears mask to test out. The masks retail at $4 per piece or $16 for a box of 5 pieces.

Dinner @ The Disgruntled Chef, Dempsey

The bunny needed a change of scenery while the bf was looking for good food to brighten his dreary day so we made a trip to 26B Dempsey Road where The Disgruntled Chef was located.

My Lip Stuff lip balm review

Ever since the bunny started on Nimegen, my skin has been loads better but I suffered from dry, peeling lips, a known side effect of the anti-acne drug. I tried loads of different lip balms/butters but my lips continued to peel, crack and even bleed. Research on the internet showed that Vaseline helps, but I wasn't too keen on swallowing petroleum jelly.

I was looking for a lip balm that could soothe my lips and My Lip Stuff was the answer.

Dinner invite by Addictions Cafe & Remedy Bar @ Marina Square

The bunny and the bf were given a dinner treat at Addictions Cafe & Remedy bar. The cafe is another dining choice at Marina Square's newly opened The Dining Edition. At #02-105A, it's pretty easy to spot the diner since it's the only one with an open kitchen concept in the area.

The Bunny's Hong Kong trip - Tim Ho Wan

"It's not a visit to Hong Kong without dim sum."

Day 3 in Hong Kong and we still haven't eaten any dim sum.. so this bunny dragged the bf out of bed and we headed to IFC where lots of internet searches said that Tim Ho Wan resides. Well, it's not there, not exactly. Tim Ho Wan is below the IFC Mall. More specifically, it's at the MTR mall at Hong Kong station.

The Bunny's Hong Kong trip - Dinner @ Mui Kee Cookfood Stall & visit to Avenue of Stars

Exploring 12 levels of Langham Place left the bunny ravenous. We headed to Mui Kee Cookfood Stall at Tsim Sha Tsui for dinner. Again, it's a recommended place by the bf's friends.

The Bunny's Hong Kong trip - Hello Kitty Exhibition @ Langham Place

After brunch at Australia Dairy Co., we headed to Langham Place for my main purpose of this trip - the Hello Kitty Back to 1960s exhibition.

The shopping mall was easy to find. Simply alight at Mongkok station and exit C3.

The signboard of Langham Place is pretty easy to spot

The Bunny's Hong Kong trip - Australia Dairy Co.

Day 2 of our trip in Hong Kong is filled with lots and lots of walking.

I'm serious. I've always wondered why most Hong Kongers are so slim despite all the yummy (and fattening) food such as roasted meats, dim sum, egg tarts, pineapple buns, well, you get my point...  They have to walk, A LOT. The distance from the Times Square entrance of the MTR at Causeway Bay stop to the actual train is about a 7 mins walk. *Huffs and puffs*

The Bunny's Hong Kong trip - Buying SIM card & check-in @ Butterfly at Morrison Hotel

The bunny made a trip to Hong Kong over the weekend for a short getaway with the bf. It's a super last min thing and the bf almost couldn't get his leave approved.

DBS and Cathay Pacific has a fare promotion that lasts till 6 Sep and our tix for round trip to Hong Kong costed S$308 per person.

The Hippopotamus @ Marina Square

The bunny’s bf has been eyeing The Hippopotamus at #01-204/205, Marina Square for some time now, but we have never stepped in due to the steep prices. Thanks to a Groupon deal, we finally decided to give the restaurant a shot (we got a $50 voucher at $32.50).

From the outside, the restaurant looks cosy with comfortable lighting but the interior was a tad weird with a mixture of contemporary and rustic vibes.

Hello Kitty nail stickers - black & rose design

The bunny wrote a post on Hello Kitty Nail Stickers earlier this year and here's another design!

Found at Sanrio Takashimaya, the black & rose Hello Kitty stickers are cute and classy at the same time.

Buffet dinner @ Carnivore Appetite, Marina Square

Marina Square has recently undergone a huge renovation to include a dedicated area for food named The Dining Edition. One of the new restaurants is Carnivore Appetite, located at #02-102.

Shop front of Carnivore Appetite
The restaurant is pretty much spacious and has a rustic feel to it with its white-washed brick wall design and sturdy wooden furniture. It's easy to feel at home here with the easy atmosphere and friendly, smiling staff.

Lunch @ The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, JEM

The bunny was at The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf for lunch at JEM. Apparently, the coffee house serves proper meals now too. They're certified Halal too, so it's a new addition to the places that I can dine with my Muslim friends. Honestly, I didn't know that till a colleague brought me there, it's been years since I stepped into CBTL since the bf prefers Starbucks.

Dinner @ Covelli, Orchard Central

The bunny was given a treat when the bf brought me to Covelli recently. Located in a quiet corner at Orchard Central, B2-11/22, the bistro is touted by netizens as a hidden find for quality Italian food.

Covelli is the perfect location for a date - Soft flickering from the electronic tea light emitting from every table; pink and red balls of flowers and intricate birdcages hanging from the ceiling; soothing music playing in the background all add to the charm of this place.

Etude House I Need You Pomegranate! Mask Sheet Review

To be honest, I wasn't really looking forward to try another mask from Etude House's I Need You range since my previous experience with the mask was a lemon (pun fully intended). Nonetheless, since I have already bought a few pieces of the mask, there's no sense in letting them go to waste. So today's self-pampering session is with the Etude House I Need You, Pomegranate mask.

Dinner invite by Stew Kuche @ Bukit Merah

The bunny was invited for dinner at Stew Kuche on Wed, and the invite was extended to the bf and our friend Daph as well.

Stew Kuche literally translates to Stew Kitchen from German. This small enclave operates out of a coffee-shop at Blk 119 Bukit Merah Lane 1, #01-40.

Etude House I Need You, Lemon! Mask Sheet review

The bunny tried out her first mask from Etude House's I Need You range - the I Need You, Lemon! Mask Sheet and here's my experience with it.

As always, the products from Etude House have cutesy looking packaging and the mask is no exception. The vibrant yellow color was what attracted me to it in the first place.

Atas Hawker Fare @ Madam Kwan's

"Are you crazy or have you struck lottery?" was the first thought that popped into the bunny's head when the bf insisted that we go to Madam Kwan's at the ground level of Vivocity to try the Nasi Lemak for dinner . After all, Madam Kwan serves modest hawker food at atas restaurant prices. Turns out, it was neither. His rationale was a quest to find out what exactly was so special that made people willing to pay for prices such as $15 for a plate of humble Nasi Lemak and to queue for it.

Pocket-friendly French food @ Saveur

With all the gorging this bunny is doing this week, it's a miracle that I'm not yet the size of a whale... The bf and the bunny finally visited Saveur for lunch after talking about it for a longgg longgggg time.

We visited Saveur at Bugis, located at 5 Purvis Street,  Talib Court #01-04. The restaurant offers French food at pocket-friendly prices and is almost always spotting a long queue waiting to get in.

Dim Sum lunch @ Asia Grand Restaurant

A colleague of mine recommended Asia Grand Restaurant, located at #01-02 Odeon Towers when the bunny was asking around for suggestions on places to bring my mum to for her birthday. So here's where the family had lunch today.. If you're a directional klutz like me and is unfamiliar with the place, Odeon Towers is just right next to Carlton Hotel.

Asia Grand Restaurant has 2 types of menu - one for ala carte food items & set courses and another for dim sum. On this trip, our orders were mainly from the dim sum menu.

Tim Ho Wan @ Plaza Singapura

The bunny has finally gotten the chance to try the dim sum at Tim Ho Wan! The opening of the 1-star Michelin restaurant at the new extension of Plaza Sing has been much hyped about and you would have been living under a rock to have missed this piece of news. Since the restaurant's opening, the queues have been very much insane and this bunny isn't crazy enough to wait for 3 hrs (unless it's Hello Kitty of course!). It was a lucky break that I reached the restaurant slightly after 6pm today and there was only a short queue. In all, I think I waited for about 15 mins.

Dim Dim (The Hong Kong Pantry) @ Marina Square

The bf and bunny were shopping in the vicinity when we decided to have dinner at Dim Dim. We weren't very hungry so the small bites of dim sum from the cafe appealed to us. Dim Dim is situated at the new wing of Marina Square, #B1-16. It's just opposite Kkongdon BBQ.

The cafe has a clean and spartan look. The walls are bare and undecorated and is simply furnished with laminated tables and chairs. At dinner time, the place is still very much deserted.

Imperial Treasure Seafood Restaurant @ JEM

The bunny and family were at Imperial Treasure Seafood, located at B1-11 of JEM yesterday to celebrate Daddy's birthday. Daddy requested for someplace near and what better way to drag him to the newly opened shopping mall? Besides, it's my 2nd trip to Imperial Treasure Seafood this week - the earlier visit was a celebratory lunch at work, so I've tasted the food and it has sorta passed my criteria to bring the family.

Pot Luck Zi Char in the Pot @ IMM

The bunny had lunch with her colleague at IMM yesterday. The mall looks so different after the renovation and the eatery, Pot Luck, located at #01-101A is a new addition. Pot Luck is part of the Soup Restaurant Group.
