Happy Tummy: C.O.W (Cajun On Wheels) @ Plaza Singapura


I and my Little Brother Phlebas are at Plaza Singapura to watch the movie Boss Baby at 6:30pm and as usual we haven't eaten yet as in no breakfast and lunch, so I was excited when I saw C.O.W has opened an outlet at Plaza Singapura, I saw their outlet at Pasarbella in Suntec City and I was intrigued when I saw was other diners were eating hahahaha I was not in the mood for seafood so I gave it a pass.

Oh oh let's get thee disclaimer part out of the way, this is not a sponsored post, we paid for our meal and all the opinion here is mine and my brothers 😃

So what is exactly Cajun on Wheels, here is their story from their Facebook Page

Halal Seafood in buckets and more!

Eliminating the complications of hunting down good-quality seafood, Cajun on Wheels is a new seafood chain that provides the enjoyment of premium seafood dishes in absence of any ostentatiousness. In true American fashion, Cajun on Wheels takes on the spirit of the gourmet food truck, catering fresh and quintessentially Louisiana-style seafood cuisine without the fuss.

Dunk those fingers into the different choices of seafood buckets great for sharing among family and friends, enjoying a delicious mess. For the on-the-goers, simply choose one of the Ocean boxes that includes a main protein and a wide selection of wholesome side-dishes, and before you know it, you’re already on your way with REEL seafood goodness in your hands.

Cajun seafood, simply just the way you like it.
You won't miss their branch at Plaza Singapura with those big glowing C.O.W sign hahahahhaah.


Shy to enter because you are not sure what they offer? Well, great of them to put their menu right in the entrance.


When you are ready proceed to the counter which is this cool looking red food truck.



oh oh if you need a bigger version of the menu because somehow your eyesight is failing you like me...they have the giant version of the menu before the counter.

We were hungry so I actually almost ordered everything hahahahha. But this is the part that disappointed me... we were there around 3pm and they are out of stock of Lobster Bisque and Clam Chowder!!!! Why!! Why!! hahahahah.



After you placed your order you will be given the number token.


It's free seating so you could sit almost anywhere, it was not a peak hour so the dining area is not full.

Love the decor of the place, lots of light. The tables and chairs give you this feeling of old..those nice old feeling.



Here my brother took a photo in panorama mode, excuse me for as always I am looking at my phone.



So now to the food!!! What did we order

For appetizer we decided to order some even if our meals already comes with sides hahahahh we were already seated when we decided to order more, I think we made our tummy call the shots.

Fried Mushroom

My little Brother Phlebas loves mushroom so we had to order these, that mushroom was evenly covered by the batter and it was seasoned well and kinda crunchy the mushroom was delish...warning though need to wait for it to cool down a bit or you might burn you lips like I did...need I remind you I was hungry hahahahaha.

Fried Mushroom $ 4.90
Purple Coleslaw

This is a must try, the purple cabbage is crunchy, loved that they put raisins into it and of course the dressing was tangy and sweet almost like how my late mom will do it.

Purple Coleslaw $2.90

Ok no judgement I know we tend to order a lot but having a little brother who doesn't want to waste food he does finish everything and again we were hungry hahahahah.

Moving on, what was our mains

Since it was just the 2 of us and we had ordered tons of appetizers, we decided to order their ocean box meals.

You have to choose the type of meal + sauce + side

Mussels in Salted Egg sauce with Aglio Pasta

Iam one certified salted egg sauce addict hahahah anything that has salted egg especially the creamy type I will buy and eat.

The sauce was creamy but not spicy even though there is the chili sign beside it on the menu and it has small potatoes that was tender and a quarter of a corn on a cob which I really don't fancy so I passed it to my brother.

The Aglio pasta was cooked al dente and season well and when it was mixed with the Salted Egg sauce it was divine.

Mussels in Salted Egg with Aglio Pasta $10.50
Not sure if you guys will find this petty or funny..looked at my reaction hahahah I was enjoying my meal when I found one of the mussels didn't opened..sigh!! bummer!!


And what made it worse was it was not only 1 but 2!!!! That's 2 out of 8 mussels that did not open 🙍 ok I might be over eacting but still!!! 



Mixed Seafood in Cajun Cheese sauce with Spam Fries

My little brother choose this for his meal, the cheese sauce was nice and cheesy all and like the other sauces it has small potatoes that was tender and a quarter corn in a cob.

The seafood shrimp, mussels, fish were cooked well, if you are wondering yes all his mussels were opened


Chicken Spam Fries

Who doesn't love spam of course it's going to be salty duh!! It was deep fried nicely and again...It's Spam!! We love spam.


Chicken Spam Fries 

And for kickers we decided to order another meal from their Louisiana Burger Menu..what made us order? 100% Premium beef!!  

We are all burger lovers and we know that it's either a hit or miss so well since we were hungry...we gotta try!!

Crusty C.O.W Burger with sweet potato fries 

We ate this last, just because it's a beef burger with lobster hahaha all good things should be eaten last don't you think? Not that the rest of the meals we had was not good but this is the cherry on top.

Crusty C.O.W Burger with sweet potato fries ($13.90)
So when it was time for us to eat it, the bread was already soggy which was our fault for letting it sit for sometime, but look at at..the beef patty is huge and the lobster is as big too.


I am already full so I told my brother that I will just have a quarter of the burger..and when it was cut, you could see the beef patty and the lobster is cooked well,



We now know it does look good so how about the taste, well my brother was not the type of person that will ask his picture to be taken but with this Crusty C.O.W burger he asked me to take his photo.

The beef patty was seasoned and cooked well, surprisingly moist. The lobster was sweet and tender.




Sweet Potato Fries

This was my brother idea to order but it was a pleasant surprise, it was crispy and tender inside just like your normal fries but just sweeter it was a perfect compliment to the meals.

Overall Experience

Food:
Love the food that we ordered everything was seasoned and cooked well, only hiccups was the 2 mussels that didn't opened and they being out of stock of the Lobster Bisque and Clam Chowder.

Ambiance 
Bright and cozy the dining area which I love.

Service:
The staff are friendly, courteous and helpful. 

Price
Totally affordable and worth every single cent. 

Will we come back?
Yupyup we want to try their Seafood Buckets which are good for sharing 2-5 people and I want to wear the apron and hammer those crustaceans away hahahahha. Need to visit again with the gang

Beauty: The Althea.com Haul


Yahoo!! it's a 3 day weekend although I have to work tomorrow for a Sales Event I am still happy ... I could sleep an extra hour tomorrow to meet my friend for breakie at 9:00 am before we head to our event at 10:30 hahahahaha. It also means that I could schedule some posts which honestly some are long overdue...

Opps! Have to let you know that I've purchased everything in these haul. This is not a sponsored post, although there are links that will help me earn points you could use them to register or not hahahaha but all opinion are my own :-)

Now that disclaimer is out of the way let us start the ball rolling let's talk about my althea.com, I stumbled upon althea.com during my search for a Beauty subscription box.

So let me share with you something about them...



They were founded in 2015, it's a one stop online shopping platform that offer authentic Korean beauty products for makeup, skincare and hair and body at a reasonable price, and when they say reasonable it's like 30% - 70% off from the retail price in the shops (cartwheels!! takes out debit card)

They carry a Korean Beauty brands like Etude House, The Face Shop, Missha, Klairs, Holika Holika, Tony Moly, Pony Effect and a lot lot lot lot more. 

Oh oh oh they also have an Althea Box, they have different themes or rather they launch new boxes every month where you could save at least 60% off. Unfortunately I haven't found the right box for me yet...sigh!!!

Anyways but that didn't stopped me from purchasing...you do get a $10 off your 1st purchase and you get FREE shipping with a minimum purchase of $29 (they ship to 200 countries) and trust me it's easy to hit it hahahahaha.

You Belles have to sign up first HERE, you could even sign up using your Facebook or Google+ account.




Then you are set hahahahah browse through their collection, which is organized that makes shopping easy peasy.

And when you found a product you like..either you put it in your cart or wishlist (I have tons of products on my wishlist hahahahah)


And if you can't decide, most of the products have member reviews, which personally helped me since some of my haul consisted of products that I haven't tried.



And checking out is a breeze you could use your credit/debit card or Paypal account.

and again will repeat you get 10 points and $10 rebate on your 1st purchase


Once you confirmed your order it will take around 2 weeks to receive your items which is not bad.

Ok ok let's start.. what did I actually bought.

Received it packaged in these bright pink packaging which I find very cute hahahahah I don't like to use pink but I like looking at them.


Opened and...more pink, the box is sturdy which gave me an idea for a DIY project using all the packaging of beauty products that I have kept which will be another post...why do I have this tendency to side track hahahahaha.


The products came in wrapped excellent condition, not sure if you could see but the other product was individually bubbled wrap (was too excited that I've forgotten to take a photo, sorry).


BTW I will not be reviewing them here, will have a different post for that which I will update this post with a link to my review once they are up..so for the meantime enjoy and here they are 


Why?? because they are so cute hahahahahah and since I got into the Korean beauty I love love using masks and when I saw these Holika Holika Baby Pet Magic Mask Sheets cuties I have to have them and it also gave me an idea for a post..will collect and try animal masks so wait it for it's all going to be cute and adorable hahahahah, and just for $2.00 each.. why not?


Who doesn't love Dinosaurs..remember Litte Foot?? well, if you been reading my other posts by now you would know that I have a very oily type skin hahahahahah I don't enjoy putting powder on my face when it reaches the stage that I need to blot my oiliness hahahaha.. ok that's just the excuse that I told myself to get the Too Cool for School, Dinoplatz Dear Brachiosaurus Oil Paper to the Sponge again the packaging is so cute, can't wait to try it, and the price is reasonable.. $6.00


hmmmm?? noticing a trend with my purchase? they are all cuties hahahaha so Y.E.T di it chu lipstick again has this adorable reminds me of Marilyn Monroe and honestly who doesn't love her. It came in 3 shades for the price of $7.00 each, I got all three :-)


Now we leave the cuties haul and see the need part hahahahah. Remember when I told you that althea.com prices is affordable, this is one brand that I've been using and the prices is really at least 20% off from the store. I been using Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder  for months now and I love love it (its 50% off on Althea)so I gotta give Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Pact again I am blessed with an oily face hahahahahah.


I heard about the Missha brand from one of the beauty youtubers and they love the brand so when I saw it at althea.com I need to try it because I emptied my current mascara, so told myself this is perfect to try Missha The Style 4D Mascara for only $4.50 and with 200+ review why not?

                            
Another one from the Missha brand..I have dark circles or panda eyes hahaha due to the things I've done when I was way younger those late nights will come back to haunt you hahahahah so if any young ones out there do take note. I've not try anything to hide or conceal it so sometimes or most of the times it's visible so again another reason for me to try one out and Missha Under Eye Brightener with 300+ reviews and at $5.00 (70% off) Why not? 

Writing this post I realized my purchases is all below $10 hahahahah I should have titled the post My less than $10 products haul from althea.com  hmmmm? I already purchased another haul from althea.com  ( yes! you read it right 2 hauls in a month) which I think is again all below $10 hahahahah gotta check and look out for that post for I am excited for it too.

It is true, all their products are affordable that's why I have a 2nd haul hahahahha, they gave me savings which means I could buy more..

You might be wondering.. I found them looking for a beauty box to purchase and try, I did found a beauty box from another site (which was a disaster hahahaha will post about it soon) but they do have several boxes from althea.com either the box was already out of stock or I haven't found the box from me yet..that's another thing I l like about althea.com boxes you will know what you are going to get so no surprises (arrghhh! lesson learned from my beauty box haul)so I am going to be such a regular customer hahahahah, just have to learn how to hide my hauls from Hubby...

oh oh have to let you know this... althea.com  have an App hahahah which actually made all my 2 hauls purchases easy and discreet from Hubbyness, download the app by clicking the picture


The app is easy to navigate...add to your wishlist or cart, checkout is again a breeze, I actually bought all my purchases through the app and did the checkout when I was on my way to work on a bus hahahaha told you I need to be discreet :-)

And another thing about the app you could add your favorite brands on your profile which will make it easy for you to shop hahahahah


And if you are in a budget like me!!! Here is the perfect reason why you have to download the althea.com app at Google play. The EVERYTHING BELOW $5 tab hahahahah..


Belles, I think I have given you reasons on why you should try althea.com. Big Savings, Authentic Korean Beauty products, FREE shipping above $29 and for your 1st purchase you get a $10 rebate and 10 points which you could use on your next purchase.

So Belles, have anyone of you tried althea.com? Do you love them as much as I do? what did you buy? Have you tried their Althea Boxes? let me know in the comment section.

Till my next Beauty Adventure.. Be courageous, kind and a blessing to everyone you meet.

30 Quotes 13 Reasons Why


I am an avid Netflix junkie, I could spend days straight binge watching any series that I find interesting. 13 Reasons Why is no exception, I think I saw somewhere that it was good, but I didn't think that it was somehow a life changing experience for me.

I won't talk about the series, in case some of you have not watched it yet...but let me leave you with this realization, I am blessed that I went through High school unscaved, with all the drama that we went through somehow me and my lifetime friends survived. 

And some even said that it's a series glamorizing suicide..hahahahah well everyone has their own opinion, what I think? It's a topic that people don't want to talk about but it's happening to a lot of people not only to teens. What the show is about then...It's about we as a person or a human being in that matter have to be nice to one another, that's it...be nice, good, gracious and sad it may be, we needed a show like 13 Reason Why to remind us this.

Oh my, I could rant and tell stories about anxiety, depression, self doubt but that will be another post, for I am not even sure how to write it or if I could even share it...

Anyways, I've decided to make a post about the 13 Reason Why Quotes, I know it's a depart from my motivational positivity quotes, well I am not even so sure what I will write when I post it in Instagram but somehow I know I could put an inspirational motivation twist on it.  

So here it goes... 
































And there it is 30 Quotes from 13 Reasons Why, you could download the full collection HERE.

Have you watched 13 Reasons Why? What are your thoughts about the series let me know at the comment section below or favorite quote from the series.

Till my next adventure Belles...remember Be courageous, kind and a blessing to everyone you meet.
