Eat the Meringue in Sitka Restaurant

You have to try the Meringue cake from Sitka Restaurant. Jalan Batai is getting more attention lately thanks to the newly opened Ben’s Grocer but today it’ll be about Sitka Restaurant, one of the shops along the Yellow Brick Road Cafe. Heard good things about it from some friends and finally had a chance to try it out with the beau for lunch after my recent job interview (Which is now my permanent job!).

It has a cozy interior with its industrial-inspired architecture which is cliche because almost all cafes are going for this look. But when it’s crowded, most of its coziness is gone with the noise.sitka restaurant

Have some Mocha (RM11) and some house-made Mango cooler drink (RM10) to quench your thirst.

Lunch is served!
buttermilk fried chicken sitka restaurant
I ordered the buttermilk Fried Chicken (RM23) which comes 2 pieces of chicken topped with honey and thyme with a piece of waffle and half a cob of roasted corn. It smelled so good and the skin is the best because it’s crispy and I love my skins to be that way!
However, when I cut into the chicken, it was still a little raw inside so naturally you will call the waiter to get it cooked again right? I did and the waiter said oh it’s cooked already because the chicken has been soaked in a brine, he gave me a face of frustration and said if you want the chef to cook it again it will take 15 minutes and the chicken will be dry.
Because I’m nice and I felt his urge to leave since it was a busy lunch hour, I just let it go. But recently someone told me that their chicken was not raw inside when they had the Buttermilk Chicken. Oh well, at least I didn’t get any tummy ache from eating slightly raw chicken.
It was juicy inside but my brain keeps replaying Gordon Ramsay’s ‘This is raw!’ throw into the bin scenario as I was eating. The corn was cooked well and so is the waffle but for the price I am paying, I expect them to be more generous with those elements.

The beau had the Duck Confit sandwich which had teared up pieces of duck confit, roasted oranges, parsnip and herbs scattered on a toasted bread. The combination of the duck and orange is a winning combo as usual! Just the portion is not enough for a big eater that’s for sure.
meringue cake sitka restaurant
This Meringue (RM15) cake was one of the best cakes I’ve had in a long time! Described as Valrhona Chocolate mousse cake with raspberries, every bite was decadent! Its chocolaty and not too sweet too thanks to the tartness of the berries. Slight crispiness from the meringue layers just adds more fun to the party in my mouth! I will come back for this cake!!!

Food- 8/10 (Only because of the buttermilk chicken and meringue)

Get Wunderful lips and some ‘fried chicken’ from Wunderbath

I’m game for anything that is handmade with natural ingredients so when I stumbled onto Wunderbath‘s booth during the Popmarket Rainbowland by Pop Culture Live, it got me curious. Also because I am a sucker for stuff like this! The founder of Wunderbath, Evelyn was really nice as she shared about her whimsically realistic soaps, lip balms and body souffles. Plus her products are really cute and smelled really good! If I didn’t control myself, I would have bought more than the 2 products that I got for myself.wunderbath wunderlippie

This Wunderlippie is only RM18.90 and it comes with and eco-pouch and a product description card inside so you know what ingredients is used to create the lip balm.wunderbath review
My naked lips that’s a little chapped.
wunderbath review
So I need a little help from the Wunderlippie in Rogue which is a burgundy red stained lip balm. Which I can wear on its own or under any lipstick or lip gloss.
wunderbath review
I love how it has a good colour payoff and you can even see the colour as you swatch it on your hands. There’s a slight cooling sensation also since it is mint flavoured. Don’t know it looks more pink in the picture but I guess it differs with each person since all of us have different natural lip colour.
wunderbath review
All in all, I love this lip balm! I used it throughout pageant week to test it out and it really made my lips more moisturized so it made lipstick application a breeze. Now I regret that I didn’t get it in all the colours when they had a promo.
wunderbath review
It’s totally normal to wash your hands with a drumstick. Totally! Ok I kid, it’s a lovely soap that thankfully doesn’t smell like fried chicken. Said to be scented with Citrus Splash but somehow it reminds me of a scent from The Body Shop, really smells like the store. After showering with it, I like that it lathers well, it doesn’t leave a super squeaky clean feeling and my skin feels soft after. It was a little difficult to hold it so maybe I have to get a soap pouch from Daiso or something.
wunderbath review
Due to it’s realistic aesthetic, I managed to prank my dad where he nearly ate one. Luckily I stopped him on time. I think it’s a good bargain because you get 1 pair of wings and 1 pair of drumsticks for only RM16.90 and 1 of it could last you for more than 2 weeks.

Now I can’t wait to finish my soaps so that I can try out other cute ones like this Egg and Toast soap!

One Book That’s Worthy Cause You Get To Save Some Cash!

Have any of you stumbled on the Worthy Book (RM29.90 for 180 vouchers, that’s a pretty good deal!) in bookstores and magazine stands recently? Well I picked up the Food Edition 2 weeks back and ever since then, I have visited 3 different restaurants which has been featured on this voucher booklet. Apparently the vouchers lasted from last year till end of August 2015. So I’m a little late on the Worthy Book bandwagon but hey, at least I still got to enjoy 3 deals featured in the booklet. 🙂

worthy book brotzeit
I had cravings for some German food so I made my way to Brotzeit since I saw they had some vouchers for me to use there. I used the 25% Off On Any Sausage Platter voucher and got the their signature pork sausage platter that came with a generous amount of mashed potatoes and sauerkraut.
But I wished they were more generous about the amount of sausages or make it fatter since you’re serving about 5 pieces only per platter. It was about RM45 before the 25% discount. Nevertheless, the mashed potato and sauerkraut tasted great with the sausages, nothing is more German than having your sausages with sauerkraut. Just pass the voucher as you are making your order so that the waiter will include the platter in the order. Remember to hand it to them as you ask for your bill for them to include the discount.

 

worthy book sushi tei
A few days after I popped my Worthy Book’s voucher cherry, I headed to Sushi Tei to get my Salmon Sashimi fix since I could redeem 1- FREE Salmon Sashimi with orders above RM30. Actually it was 5 thick pieces of Salmon Sashimi but the beau stole 1 piece before I took a picture of it but hey, it does look similar to it’s photo on the voucher. It was yummy so I’m happy I got my fix.
Show the voucher when you’re making orders and pass it to them when you call for your bill. They charged me for the sashimi because they forgotten about the voucher that I have shown them so check your receipt before paying.

 

worthy book my burger lab
Last week, the beau and I made our way to My Burger Lab, OUG so that we can try out some new burgers from them. This 50% OFF on Second Burger voucher was a really helpful since we ordered 1 Yellow Submarine set and 1 Bulbasaur a la carte burger to that got discounted by 50%. Pass the voucher to them as you make your order. The T&C for the voucher did not state we can only use 1 voucher per receipt so we had to ask if we are allowed to use more than 1 voucher.

 

my burger lab yellow submarine
The Yellow Submarine set. It’s one of the Secret Menu burgers so we had to try it! It has fried chicken, fried egg, mustard and other ingredients that I can’t recall but you can always ask the friendly workers there on what’s available and inside of the burgers. This was delish as the chicken was crispy, juicy on the inside and the egg yolk was oozing out as you bite into it.

 

my burger lab bulbasaur
The Bulbasaur has fried chicken, fried egg, green salsa and a seaweed sauce. I like how the seaweed adds some saltiness while the salsa gives it some tangy taste to balance it out!

I do wish that we’re allowed to use a max of 2 vouchers per transaction so it’ll be more worth it since some vouchers are free add-ons and some are discounts. Hopefully in the oncoming Worthy Books there’ll be more of the hottest dining spots and we can use more than 1 voucher per visit.

Where did I get my Worthy Book?
The FnB Edition and the Shopping Edition is available at all major bookstores (MPH, Popular, Times, Borders, Kinokuniya) and selected myNEWS.com and 7-11 outlets in KL and Selangor.

First Althea Korea loot + Review

First Althea Korea loot + Review

Many beauty bloggers and Butterfly Malaysia have been raving about Althea Korea. This cool new site sells Korean skincare and makeup at the GUARANTEED best price in the market and it ships directly from South Korea if you order more than RM150 worth of products, how awesome is that?! I had to be on the same bandwagon with them so my sister and I shared and ordered a few products to test out.

Our order arrived in less than 2 weeks as stated on the website so YAY for fast shipping! Also if you are unsatisfied with your products, you can return the products unconditionally (cue Katy Perry’s hit) in 30 days.

Althea First Haul

First haul from Althea

Wrapped in pink packaging and bubble wrapped so it’s not damaged during its travel! This is the kind of little things that most online stores should practice because it shows how much you care about your products and it makes us feel at ease too. It opens to a pink lover’s paradise with the pink interior and pink tissue papers! All of your items are individually wrapped with bubble wrap for extra ammo too.

IT'S SKIN POWER 10 Formula PO Effector

I got myself one of the It’s Skin serum Power 10 Formula in PO Effector (RM28 ONLY! PEOPLE, TELL ME WHERE CAN YOU FIND A SERUM THIS CHEAP? AT Althea Korea of course, DUH!)and it’s my first serum too! Here’s what it does for your skin according to Althea’s website:
Shrinks Enlarged Pores
Targets and shrinks enlarged pores to restore a silky smooth complexion.
Refines Skin Texture
Normalizes sebum production and balances skin’s oil and water content.
Quickly Penetrating Formula
Highly concentrated Houttuynia cordata extracts gets deep within skin’s layers.

IT'S SKIN POWER 10 Formula PO Effector

It has a dropper to help you get the serum out so it’s more hygienic and it has a very light scent to it.
IT'S SKIN POWER 10 Formula PO Effector
Just put 2-3 drops on your fingers and pat it in an upward motion on your face until it’s absorbed.
IT'S SKIN POWER 10 Formula PO Effector review
My Naked face with no filters, just some lighting adjustments and toner and eye cream. I have a lot of blackheads and whiteheads on my nose area so my T-zone gets oily really fast. So I was hoping this could help to control the oil and shrink them pores.
Just drop 2-3 drops and apply it on your skin. It absorbs really fast and it doesn’t leave any greasy feeling at all. Then you can go to your next skincare step.

IT'S SKIN POWER 10 Formula PO Effector review

After application, my pores doesn’t look that obvious anymore! I topped it up with my day moisturizer, Simple Regeneration Age Resisting Day Cream SPF 15 then end it with some spritz of Hydrating Water Mist Rose from RAW FOODS by Wedding Bash. After a long day, my face didn’t turn oily super fast like the usual which is a plus and it sort of acted as a primer to make my pores less obvious too!
Holika Holika Gel Eyeliner Review
The second item I got is the Holika Holika Jewel Light Waterproof Eyeliner in Black Gem (RM16). I love the holographic printing on the packaging!

Holika Holika Gel Eyeliner Review

It’s a gel pencil and I think I’m supposed to sharpen it once it get’s blunt cause I couldn’t twist the bottom end.

Holika Holika Gel Eyeliner Review

Swatch on my hand to test it out since my eyes needs some TLC. It’s really soft so you don’t have to press hard to get the colour out.
Holika Holika Gel Eyeliner Review
The top swatch is when I left it to dry and the bottom swatch I blend it out. This is after washing with water. Looks like it’s not waterproof after all and I was hoping I can use this in my waterline to tight line my eyes. I think it will work nice for a smokey eye but will have to top it off with some eyeshadow powder to set it.

 

So I got a hit & miss for this round. But at least now I know where I can get Korean skincare and makeup at the best price and without the need to leave my home too! 🙂
