Beauty Soup Stock


There are a lot of websites talking about the benefits of bone or collagen broth so I’ll not go into it. I usually make a big batch of it every few weeks or until I’m running out of it. I do not season it with salt because I prefer to do it when I use it for stew or soup, with either salt, soy sauce or flavourful ingredients like dried scallops, anchovies, etc. Here’s how I prepare my beauty soup stock.

Square Pizzas


It used bugged me that unfinished bread loaf was thrown away because it had turned moldy. Friends’ recommendation is to keep it in fridge to maintain its freshness. However, I would end up with hard, dry and flaky bread. Unless I let it sits in room temperature for an hour prior to consumption. That’s why I stopped buying bread loaves for a long time.

Since the beginning of this year, the breakfast timing at Leah’s school was being pushed to a later time, I was not able to make sure she takes her breakfast in school. Hence, I feel there’s a need to let her have something before heading to school. Nut butter bread is probably the easiest to prepare in the morning, but I would still left with unfinished bread by expiry date. Hence, came the idea of using them to make square pizzas. It’s quick fixed meal and Leah had fun helping out! Continue reading

Orbis Ginger Complex Powder


Orbis is a skincare brand from Japan. I got to know it via either or couple of years back, and finally got to my hands on their products when I was in TW in 2011. Apparently, this brand has arrived at our shore! I’m not sure about the pricing here, but in TW, their price range is about the same as Fancl’s. In my opinion, its branding is very similar to DHC, Fancl and HABA, especially branding colours – very clean and clinical. They have products for skin, body and hair, cosmetics, healthy food and beauty supplement. I haven’t check out the local store hence I’m not sure if they have brought everything in. Oh! They have baby range too! Continue reading
