akasaka kitafuku red king crab dining adventure
Red King Crab or otherwise known as Paralithodes Camtschaticus, is the largest and most common species of the Alaskan king crab species. This King Crab is the most prized species of crab in the world, with strong demand from consumers in Japan, the US and Europe. In Japanese, the Red King Crab is called Tarabagani ( タラバガニ ), and Akasaka Kitafuku ( 赤坂きた福 ) is a Michelin-starred restaurant specialized in serving these most sought after delicacies.

During my last trip to Tokyo, I had the privilege to watch a live performance where my dedicated Chef cut up an entire live crab and cook right in front of me, turning the crustacean into yummy sashimi, shabu shabu, grilled and boiled seafood. Be warned! You may get very hungry by the end of this post…………

Prima Taste Rendang, Singapore Favourites Meal Sauce Kits

#Rendang is a spicy meat dish popular in countries such as Indonesia, Philippines, Malaysia and Singapore. Rich in spices, the meat dish is drenched in flavourful coconut milk with a subtle hint of galangal and lemongrass scent.

prima taste rendang singapore favourites meal sauce kit review
Depending on your cooking preference, Rendang ranges from wet to dry and the variety of meat includes beef, mutton and chicken. My family loves Beef Rendang. Cooking traditional Rendang is often time-consuming as it requires grinding the ingredients and slow cooking the meat, which is why I've never tried preparing it at home. Besides, I'm not confident I can pull off a good job. It's one dish that requires much skill.

prima taste ready to cook meals
After having tried quite a few products from Prima Taste, I'm already their big fan! For my 1st cooking experiment with Beef Rendang, I'm using the Prima Taste Rendang Asian Dry Curry Meal Sauce Kit, and followed their suggestion to use Beef Shin.

sk ii magnetic wands review
Once again, SK-II has challenged history by launching the World's 1st Magnetic Eye Care - the SK-II’s New STEMPOWER Eye Cream with Magnetic Wand, a revolutionary 3-Point eye firm-up to Ageless Beauty!

Do you know that eye bags begin to sag in the 20s, eyelids develop wrinkles in the 30s, while wrinkles manifest in the corner of the eyes in a woman’s 40s? If only I knew this when I was in my 20s....

Well, it seems that the skin surrounding the eye is particularly sensitive to the effects of ageing due to its thinness, which causes it to easily lose firmness and plumpness. According to the results of the SK-II Akita study, the industry’s first holistic longitudinal study which spanned over 10 years, SK-II scientists have discovered that each key area is affected by aging in different ways.
