Happy Tummy: Gudetama Cafe Singapore


It has opened in SG last November at Suntec City and every time we would pass by there is a long line hahahahah... well the Galang siblings are not known for lining up to wait hahahah when we are hungry we are hungry.

So I was surprised when there was no que hahahaha maybe it was too early, I was at Suntec to get my phone repaired it was before 6pm. We took this opportunity to finally try the lazy egg cafe that almost everyone was raving about.



The interior is brightly lit which I love...I like to see my food hahahaahah, wish I could taken more photos :-(


So lets get into the food...the reason why we came.

We ordered our drinks, it was an ok drink but kinda expensive for  $8,50 love the glasses.

Straw-very Lazy and Hula Hula @ $8.50


Straw-very Lazy @ $8.50

Next was soup..The Gudetama Lobster Onsen at $16. The portion was big enough to share, kinda find it too seafoody taste if that makes sense.. I know I know its lobster bisque its supposed to be seafoody but we felt that theres something missing. The side salad though was delish!!!

Gudetama Lobster Onsen at $16

Now onto our mains...

I had the Shiok Pork ribs at $38.50, hmmmm? I could say that I had better ribs somewhere. It was not as tender as I was expecting, found it kinda dry to my liking. The side veggies was great, seasoned and cooked well.

My little Bro Phlebas had "I am Cold Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict @ 26.90. This is a winner. It's a must try here at Gudetama. When you sliced into the eggs the yolk will just spill over the bread and the combination of the sauce, yolk and salmon is heavenly hahahahaha.. The side salad is again good.

And for my favorite part of any meal...the desserts!!!!

Gude Pudding @ $16.90 wow!! how do I start to describe it...great? Awesome?...awesomely great to be exact, cold sweet and jiggly hahahahahah.. perfect ending to any meal.

And for my Brother Phlebas who is actually not a fan of dessert giving it a thumbs up means a lot hahahahahah.



then another dessert Ta-ma-go @ $17.90 ok this was our least favorite, we just didn't like the texture and it was just plain sweet although have to say its cute.

Beauty: Neutrogena Deep Clean Cleansing Oil (Sample Store)


I've gotten another 3 items from the Sample Store, I just needed to pay for shipping $5.99 will post about Sample Store on how it actually works in the future.


I've used Neutrogena when I was in Manila growing up and up to some point when I moved into Singapore. Loved their products so I was not hesitant to try some of their products now.


Recently I've been using BB creams on a daily basis just because I wanted to try another brand hahahahaha.

I used those make up wipes to remove my makeup daily and I didn't like it for it dries up my skin afterwards and sometimes it does sting and needed to use several wipes to totally remove my makeup which was not that much. So when I saw the Neutrogena Deep Cleansing Oil at  Sample Store I just have to give it a try.

The sample came in a 15ml tube.


How to use:For best results apply to dry face. Pump cleansing oil onto dry hands and apply to skin. Massage with gentle, circular motion. Add water to emulsify. Rinse off with lukewarm water. Can also be used on wet face.

Now lets try it.

Here I am with my makeup on after a full day. Sunblock, BB Cream and Powder. 


Applied the Neutrogena Deep Clean Cleansing Oil and massaged it into my face in circular motion.
This oil does have a mild scent which didn't bother me, I think those facial wipes are stronger.


Damped my hands and continued to massage my face until it forms a bit of lather. Loved this part hahahaha maybe its just me but when I see foam it gives me a feeling that it actually cleans my face.


Rinsed off and pat dry my face and the result? My face feel cleaned not dry it was refreshingly smooth. If I was feeling lazy I think I can get away with just this hahhahahaah.



Will I be buying the full size?? Yes, I will. They are available at any Watsons or Guardian Stores.

If you're like me who would like to try the products before committing in buying a full size.

Beauty: Aurelia Aurita QQseries Moisture Jelly Toner (Beauty Keeper)


Well spent almost half of Sunday posting about my gifts from Beauty Keeper through the  Sample Store seeders campaign.


You could read my intro post HERE and my post for  MD/AA Jiao Pulsed Mask Foaming Face Cleanser HERE.

So let us start my adventure with  Aurelia Aurita QQseries Moisture Jelly Toner.

Got these info from the Beauty Keeper website



Magic Words for an almost 44 YO lady like me???
  • Natural Ingredients
  • Soothes and soften the skin
  • Minimize pores appearance
  • Skin repairing 
Oh I must say how pretty the bottle is and yes it's full size (125ml)


The bottle is blue so dont worry, the product is actually transparent.



Disclaimer: my face hahahahahah.

Before and it was after using the MD/AA Jiao Pulsed Mask Foaming Face Cleanser


Ok now time to slap some of the toner.

Directions (from the box)

What I actually did.. 
1. Full 2 pump on my palms and dotted it unto my face then as in gently sweep it over my face
2. Full 2 pump on my palms and then rubbed my hands and I gently patted my hands over my face.

It actually was absorbed quite quickly onto my face unlike other toners wherein I need to fan my face hahahahaha. It didn't left my skin dry which I was surprised usually those quick dry toners will leave my face dry.


Left my skin smooth and soft, I was actually thinking of skipping all the other skin routines hahahah but nope can not do hahahahha 44 year old remember.

Applying the rest of my skin care... Essence, moisturizers was a breeze and the surprising part I didn't left me feeling oily.

I've been using the Aurelia Aurita QQseries Moisture Jelly Toner and MD/AA Jiao Pulsed Mask Foaming Face Cleanser 2 days now, I didn't had any breakouts so far (Yeheey!!!) and although there's no obvious apparent improvement on my skin. I did like how it felt after using it.

I love that Beauty Keeper sent me a full size product, which means I could update this occasionally until I finish it. and see what difference it could make on my old and getting older skin hahahahha.

Beauty: MD/AA Jiao Pulsed Mask Foaming Face Cleanser (Beauty Keeper)


On my previous post I introduced the 2 products that Sample Store sent me through their Beauty Keeper Campaign. You could read it HERE.

Since the post about the products are going to be lengthy decided to split them up which means 3 posts hahahahahah. I really should stop posting several topics in one seating...oh we

Anyways... I received MD/AA Jiao Pulsed Mask Foaming Face Cleanser and as said on my previous post I did go the the Beauty Keeper website to find more about the product but I cant seem to find it.

Did some googling and manage to find some and the box did came with a leaflet so here is my kinda 1st impression.

I've been using MD/AA Jiao Pulsed Mask Foaming Face Cleanser for 2 days now.

Let's talk about it.

Packaging...





They say that This is a breakthrough face cleanser that bubbles up by itself when exposed to air, and gently whisks away makeup and skin impurities without any hand rubbing. It contains ingredients to reduce acne, and increase hydration and softness. Soap-free and rich in amino acids, this cleanser is so gentle that it will not strip the skin of its essential moisture.

and it does come with a leaflet to let you know more about the product, here is a bigger and hopefully clearer, needed to cropped out the Chinese writings.  


wordy right hahahahaha,,,magic words for a soon to be 44 year old lady, and I will not rant about how I didn't listen to my late moms advice in skin care hahahahaha.
  • reduces major causes of acne
  • increase in dermal hydration and softness of skin
  • repairs skin and restores balance
  • minimizing pores
Now lets test it out....

It does come in a pump bottle. The product is liquidy, almost transparent.


Upon rubbing


Directions:
Use twice daily in the morning and evening.
No hand rubbing needed. Clean quickly in 30 seconds and rinse off with warm water.

Be warned...my face is coming up hahahahaha...all these pictures are taken on the same night that I received the products.

Before still with some residue of BB cream


Needed to do my pre-clensing ritual...cleansing oil I am using the NEUTROGENA Neutrogena Deep Clean Cleansing Oil got it also from Sample Store



After Oil cleansing...not sure if there is a difference hahahahaha


Usually washing my face with a cleanser is the last step of my shower routine but that night I did it first.. here it goes..

I dispensed half a pump on my palm and rub it on my hands for a few seconds and applied it to my face and of course I gently...emphasize gently ok...in ciruclar motions..it did foam up continued it for the next 30 seconds and washed it off. 

A little amount can go a long way.. after doing this I went back to my old routing of cleansing my face as the last step of my shower... it does foam enough that you could spread it onto your neck, chest and even arms...all the goodness can be shared hahahahah.

There's a bit of fragrance it didn't bother me, it's like a refreshing and cleaning smell..ready don't know how to describe it, it's pleasant for me.





Pat it dry..


I like how it made my skin feel...it didn't dry up my skin..I did feel that it was clean hahahaha and it did made it feel smooth and soft...like its ready to go for the next step of your skin care routine.

I've been using the MD/AA Jiao Pulsed Mask Foaming Face Cleanser 2 days now, I didn't had any breakouts so far (Yeheey!!!) and although there's no obvious apparent improvement on my skin. I did like how it felt after using it.
