Ginza Lion 120th Anniversary Set

Hello Hello! I'm back to share a new great deal to you.

Ginza Lion is celebrating their 120th Anniversary and they have launched an Anniversary menu. I gothe chance to try the Roast Beef Set which is suitable for 2 pax to share. The set cost $50 and it consist of 3 items, Seafood Salad, Ginza Lion Signature Roast Beef and Spaghetti Napolitan.

I mean, just look at that Seafood Salad. I am not angry at the generous amount of seafood on this salad. Especially coming from someone who does not like any intake of vegetables. Haha! It consist of Mussels, Squid, Clams, Salmon and Prawns. resting on a thin bed of lettuce, tossed in a savory sauce which was a little too salty for my liking. It got a little heavy after afew bites. However after squeezing some lemon juice over it, it made it really refreshing.

The highlight of the meal was definitely the Roast Beef Set with Fries. Ginza Lion uses High Quality Angus Beef from US grilled by far-infrared grill. The results? A Tender pink looking piece yet perfectly cooked. It's a pretty big piece and it is definitely suitable to share as there is still 1 more dish after this! The thick cut fries came with a Mentaiko Dip and it was delightful as well.

The last dish of the day is this Spaghetti Napolitan. It is served on a hot plate, resting on a bed of fluffy egg. The Tomato Based Pasta is very flavourful, definitely suitable for sharing with your young kids who love a good tomato base pasta. At some point it taste like a tomato ketchup pasta, maybe because it is Japanese Style? I really liked the juicy mushrooms and the sliced Sausages. It added different textures to the whole dish. And you Must Must try the fluffy egg at the bottom with the tomato sauce, it's so good. 

After the above dishes, me and my dining partner were stuffed!! 

Now, I got a good Lobang for you, yes you reading this now.
You get to enjoy a complimentary Ice Cream with any Anniversary Menu Ordered.

Thank you to J Passport for inviting me to try this special 120th Anniversary Menu from Ginza Lion.

Taobao Recommendations - Plus Size Clothing Part 1

Hello Everyone!

I am slowly crawling back to update this space and I thought why not share with everyone my favourite thing to do - Shopping. Haha! Yes, I have been shopping on Taobao since 2009/2010 and sometimes I am able to get items which are selling in retail shops at much higher price! So I am going to curate a list of the items that I have purchased from Taobao and is worth buying. I will divide them into 3 category: Clothing, Shoes & Bag and Other random things. Here we are going to talk about clothing first!

In my opinion, plus size clothing are pretty costly in Singapore and I am a cheapo, I can't bear to spend too much money on clothes either, my most expensive piece is like $30+ max? Hahaha. Sooooooooooo, I had to find an alternative to get pretty clothes for my size with an affordable price tag. So here's a list of the bought and approved items that I would like to share with all of you.

Black Hello Kitty Cotton Tee - 1 for 58RMB (about SGD$11.66)

When i first saw this Tee, I told myself I had to get it, but the price point made me think thrice before I could not resist myself anymore. Haha. The quality of the cotton tee is average. the colour does not run and the kitty print does not get wrinkly after wash and spin dry. Some of the printed tees out there gets really wrinkly after 1 wash, this one does not.

This pair of shorts is really comfortable and it has a rubberized waist and 2 pockets! The downside of this shorts is that it sticks to your leg when you sweat due to the material la.

This tube bralette comes with back hook so you do not have to pull a muscle trying to put it on. Haha!

Metallic Home Shorts - 18.50RMB (about SGD$3.74 each). This design I wear 5XL size hor. Sometimes the cutting and size labels for their items very OFF one. Need to see the measurements most accurate!

Plus Size Chiffon Top - 45RMB (about $9.10 each). I have 2 of this top in Salmon Pink and Black Floral. They are very comfortable and the sizing recommendation is pretty accurate!

Leasany - Singapore Online Travel Rental Platform

During my recent trip to Korea, I wanted to do a nice travel vlog to remember the moments there. I was racking my brain thinking if I want to bring along my DSLR so that I can get really good quality footage, but I found an interesting website - Leasany, an one-stop travel rental platform. They offer travel rental service that allows consumers to rent items for their trips instead of a 1 time purchase and leaving the items there to collect dust.

I was excited as I went through their website. They had plenty of items to choose from; Go Pros, Inflatable Floats, Tents, etc. I have always wanted to try a GoPro before buying it and I was glad that I could rent it from Leasany! I rented a GoPro Hero 7 Black and it comes with the necessary accessories and additional batteries for your long day out when you travel!

I am still editing the videos for my trip but here are some of the sneaks and photos for you to see the amazing quality of the GoPro Hero 7 Black:

I love it that I can capture the whole scene behind me without having to stretch my arm till it hurts. I once got a wide angle lens clip on but the images turns out blurry or some parts of the photo can see the rim of the clip on, so angry!

Also, I got to stay connected in Korea with AirSim. It is a Travel SIM Card that allows you to use it in different countries with just 1 card. No more buying multiple sim cards at various airports. AirSim is available in many countries and it is much more convenient this way!
