cny multi coloured smoked salmon yu sheng recipe
It is time once again for the annual CNY Prosperity Toss aka Lo Hei ( 捞起 )! I have always been very impressed with the restaurant staff for their ability to shout out the auspicious phrases while preparing for the diners’ Lo Hei session.

Do you know what the different ingredients mean? Well, every single ingredient plays an important role in this Chinese Auspicious Salad and I have listed them all in this post. This year, I am determined to practise these useful phrases for my coming prosperity toss session with my family and you should too.

For the non-Chinese, diners are supposed to pour the respective ingredients while shouting the auspicious phrases before commencing the prosperity tossing game and lastly, yelling “ Huat Ah! ” ~ an expression to get rich and lucky.

I love making the Yu Sheng Salads cause those served outside are extremely sweet and not to my liking. Last reunion, I came up with another creation using my Doll Dress Jelly Mould which was just collecting dust in my kitchen cabinet. The result was another satisfying work. Don’t you think the CNY Multi-Coloured Smoked Salmon Yu Sheng ( 鸿运当头七彩鱼生 ) is so vibrant and pretty?

Let’s get to work, and also find out the meaning of these Yu Sheng ingredients!

7 Best Islands For a Honeymoon

maria dating travel best islands for honeymoon
America, Asia or Africa ... it seems that such romantic, secluded and bright islands for the honeymoon are scattered all over the world map. Let’s check the best of them!

Belize, Central America
It looks like a real uninhabited island, on which lived Robinson Crusoe. The first thing you want to do when you get there is to go in search of pirate treasures - it is not so little for such a beautiful place as the island of Tobacco-Reef, a part of Belize. All the most important is hidden in the azure waters of the Caribbean Sea sparkling in the sun. So it's worth, at least, to grab equipment for snorkeling. A walk along the coast of this atoll takes just a few minutes, but the magnificent barrier coral reef, a local attraction, stretches far beyond visibility, as it is part of the world's second largest barrier reef. Surely it is one of the best islands for a honeymoon.

Cartoon Network-Branded Cruise Ship to Set Sail in Late 2018

singapore cruise centre cartoon network cruise ship promo
Set to make its maiden voyage from its home port of Singapore in late 2018, the 11 guest-deck, 2,000-guest Cartoon Network Wave will be one vast haven for Toon-loving travellers. With the ocean as a backdrop, families will enjoy the world's first immersive Toon vacation at sea, and an adventure with their favourite Cartoon Network stars.

While there are many existing projects by Turner's location-based entertainment team including Cartoon Network-branded restaurants, theme parks, waterparks around the world -- and even planes and trains -- this is the first time anywhere that a cruise liner has undergone a full Cartoon Network transformation.

The theming and entire onboard experience of Cartoon Network Wave is inspired by Cartoon Network's universe of well-loved characters from iconic shows such as Adventure Time, Ben 10, The Powerpuff Girls and We Bare Bears. This includes a variety of diverse entertainment, activity and recreation features, as well as retail and food and beverage options.

Cartoon Network Wave will be docked at the Singapore Cruise Centre and will sail to 13 popular destinations in the Asia Pacific region including Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, China, Taiwan, South Korea, Australia and Japan. Dates and itineraries for its routes around Asia Pacific will be announced in the coming months.

Bringing to life the world's first Cartoon-Network themed cruise Oceanic Group formalised its partnership with Turner in a signing ceremony in Singapore, marking the official launch of Cartoon Network Wave, the world's first Cartoon Network-themed cruise and Singapore's first homegrown contemporary cruise product.

Oceanic Group's Chief Executive Mr Daniel Chui said the partnership represents the company's commitment to capitalise on Asia's growing cruise travel market. "A homegrown cruise project, Cartoon Network Wave heralds the start of a new vacation experience for cruise-goers in Asia where cruise travel meets personalised journeys through experiential story-telling. With Singapore's position as a cruise hub in Asia, we believe it is only fitting that we dive right in and ride the surging tide of this passenger cruise wave."

"Cartoon Network Wave will revolutionise cruise travel in the Asia-Pacific region and create and curate new cruise experiences for holiday makers, cruise goers and generations of pop culture fans," added Mr Chui.

"Turner is always looking at new ways to bring our characters to life -- and Cartoon Network Wave will be their home on the high seas. The ship has remarkable potential to offer our existing fans a truly unique immersive experience, as well as create new ones. We couldn't be more excited by the partnership with Oceanic Group in jointly creating a world first," said Mr Ricky Ow, President of Turner Asia Pacific.

"The debut of Cartoon Network Wave as a new homegrown cruise product is testament to the vitality of Singapore as Southeast Asia's leading cruise hub. It will also augment Singapore's appeal as a top family destination by adding to the diversity of Singapore's line-up of offerings. We look forward to more family visitors coming from the region with Cartoon Network Wave's exciting deployment here," said Mr Yap Chin Siang, Assistant Chief Executive (Policy and Planning Group), Singapore Tourism Board.

Online Bookings
Online bookings for Cartoon Network Wave will start later in the year. More details on the booking dates and itineraries will be released at Cartoon Network Wave. Fans can also subscribe to Cartoon Network Wave's soon-to-be launched Facebook and Instagram for the latest updates.

Fight Baldness with FUE Hair Transplant in Turkey + Giveaway!

facebook fue hair transplant turkey giveaway worldwide
Hair loss and thinning can be caused by a number of factors, such as vitamin deficiencies, lack of proteins or stress. Alopecia is a common disorder in Asian men and women and when hair loss is no longer attributable to external factors like stress or internal ones like lack of vitamins, it is time to consider other alternatives, such as a simple hair transplant procedure. The FUE hair transplant is a painless intervention that can be a suitable solution for all patients who are battling pattern hair loss.

fue hair transplant turkey
FUE Treatment for Hair Loss
The follicular unit extraction, or FUE treatment, is the type of hair transplant in which individual hair grafts are removed directly from a donor area. It is a painless procedure, with a short recovery time. For most patients, these grafts are harvested from the back of the head. The distribution of the grafts onto the bald spots is made with micro precision to ensure an even as very natural looking distribution of the hair. Asian men and women who have a genetic predisposition for alopecia and those who are already starting to see signs of development can benefit from a FUE treatment for hair loss.

Turkey is a popular destination for medical tourism, particularly cosmetic procedures for hair restoration. The main benefit of having a FUE hair transplant in Turkey is the lower cost for the entire treatment, compared to other countries. Patients who choose to undergo this procedure in Turkey will have a short recovery time at one of the clinics in Istanbul which offers quality services for all patients. Another advantage of visiting Turkey for a FUE hair transplant is that you can enjoy a short vacation in Istanbul during the few days in which you will need to revisit the clinic for the procedure and the follow-up consultation.

Hair-Transplant-Turkey.org is now giving USD 50 Cash to 3 Lucky Readers of Luxury Haven! Giveaway is Open to All Worldwide; No Purchase Needed! All you need to do is Answer 2 Simple Questions, and complete the steps at the end of the post. USD 50 cash will be in each of your Bank Account or PayPal!

HIFU Plus Facelift at EHA Clinic with Long-Lasting Results!

eha clinic hifu plus non surgical facelift reviews
No surgery, no injections, no downtime, and with long-lasting results! Using high-intensity focused ultrasound, HIFU Plus at EHA Clinic is becoming one of the most sought-after lifting treatments for face and neck.

As we age, the SMAS layer ( a fibrous membrane that is intertwined in the space between the skin and muscles as a net ) loses strength, slacks and loosens, eventually causing the skin to droop down. HIFU Plus is an advanced face lifting method that gives powerful skin lifting effect and rejuvenation without damaging the surrounding tissues by delivering high intensity focused ultrasound ( HIFU ) on the lower dermal layer and SMAS ( fascia layer ).

advantages of hifu plus anti ageing

#HIFU is able to penetrate at deeper depths, and the targeted tissue is heated to ~65°C, creating both spaced wounds and cellular friction which in turns stimulate collagen regeneration and production. Over the next 90 – 180 days, the regenerative response stimulates long-term tissue and leads to further lifting and tightening, with results that can last years. Here are some of the positive results after HIFU:
  • Increased elastin and production of Collagen
  • Rejuvenates skin cells
  • Lifting and tightening
  • Improves, firms and tightens sagging skin
  • Eyelid hood reduction
  • Nasonabial fold reduction
  • Cheek, Jowl and Neck Tightening
  • Fine lines and Wrinkle reduction

Singapore Tourist Spot: Haw Par Villa Ten Courts of Hell

second court of hell cold ice pond
Back in old days, Singapore parents love taking their kids to one of Singapore’s oldest tourist attractions – the Haw Par Villa ( 虎豹別墅 ). Located along Pasir Panjang Road, the bizarre theme park was built in 1937 by the developers of Tiger Balm as a venue for teaching traditional Chinese values.

singapore tourist attractions haw par villa halloween
Not sure what’s with the old folks those days, but they seemed to enjoy “scaring” their children by telling them horror stories of the famous Ten Courts of Hell ( 十殿阎罗 ), and if that is not enough, they would bring them there to witness the different levels of torture.

Our parents’ intentions were nothing bad of course. These exhibits are meant to educate visitors about the values and beliefs that were highly regarded in Chinese culture such as filial piety, resisting temptation and evil-doing, loyalty and fidelity etc. The idea worked, at least for me, as gruesome images of the Ten Courts of Hell still flash vividly in my mind till to date, often reminding me not to be bad.

haw par villa ten courts of hell
For those who haven't heard, the Ten Courts of Hell are each ruled by a judge collectively known as the Ten Yama Kings with each court dealing with different punishments.

Along with two other friends whom I have known for over 30 years, we rekindled our childhood memories as we revisited the old Tiger Balm Garden. Let the pictures speak for themselves at Haw Par Villa!

Blackberry Grape Smoothie, Top Antioxidant-Rich Fruits

driscolls blackberries smoothie recipe high antioxidant prevent cancer
Are you a Smoothie person? Honestly, I have never tasted Smoothie until my prince introduced it to me some time back, and I am hooked on it now. Jon loves making Strawberry Smoothie, and he would make these yummy drinks for me whenever he is in a good mood.

fruit hamper yummy smoothie recipes
It was one of those days where we received a bundle of fruits as a gift. Hence, Jon and I decided to experiment with Blackberries and Grapes, and to give the smoothie some sweetness, we added Bananas.

top cancer fighting food red grapes blackberries
Do you know that #Blackberries are among the top-ranked antioxidant-rich fruits, and are loaded with Vitamin C and are also rich in Vitamins A, E, K, and B Vitamins? Their dark color is a sign of their high antioxidant content, and one of the most widely researched health benefits of blackberries is their ability to work as a cancer-fighting food.

On the other hand, #Grapes are not just meant for producing the world’s finest wine. Flavonoids, which are found in grapes, are the most powerful antioxidants that contribute to our health. Don’t dispose the skin! They contain Resveratrol that controls the ageing process, and is also another strong antioxidant.

Come, let’s blend all these healthy fruits together to turn them into a yummy Blackberry Grape Smoothie in just 3 easy steps! * Tips: My prince recommends using frozen Bananas for a thicker consistency.
