singapore top japanese hair salons naoki yoshihara review
Tired of having the same old curly hair for years? Well, it is certainly a good time to get a new hairstyle now with Naoki Yoshihara's Cut and Rebonding Promotion at only SGD 170 for all hair lengths!

I have had curly hair for some years now, so when Masa-san of #NaokiYoshihara by Ash suggested Soft Rebonding, I thought it may be time for a new look. My hair was also given a fresh colour; from my current light brown to a darker tone, with a hint of red added to the ends to give my hair a natural dimension.

Stir-Fried Taucheo Chicken with Green Chillies ( 豆酱鸡丁炒青椒 )

stir fried fermented bean paste chicken green chilli
Taucheo, or otherwise known as Fermented Bean Paste or Soybean Paste, is a very popular ingredient in the Asian Cuisine. Usually salty, but may be spicy, taucheo is used for dishes or soups like the Japanese miso soup.

豆酱鸡丁炒青椒
The Stir-Fried Taucheo Chicken with Green Chillies ( 豆酱鸡丁炒青椒 ) that I am introducing today is relatively easy to cook and it is certainly very tasty. Green chillies are not as spicy, but with the addition of these chillies, they give the dish a little heat as well as a punch of fragrance in the succulent chicken cubes. In Singapore, Indian families like to keep a bunch of green chillies at hand to flavour their cooking. What about you?

Louis Vuitton Monogram Canvas Bags: What's Your Pick?

luxury designer louis vuitton monogram bags collection
Owning designer bags like #LouisVuitton can never go wrong as these luxury bags can last for ages. The oldest bag seen here, the Louis Vuitton Monogram Montsouris Backpack, is probably about 20 years old! That's right, that's two decades ago and my LV backpack is still in very good condition. You probably can't tell it is that old, can you?

If you are in possession of a designer bag, it does somehow improve your mood. Well, at least it does for me. Besides, the distinctive scent of real leather keeps shoppers from coming back resulting in prices escalating over the years. It is certainly worth the investment, and if you are working hard and have the ability to appreciate the finer things in life, why not?

PurelyFresh, Singapore Online Grocery Shopping Review

purelyfresh online groceries store promotion
As much as I enjoy buying things online, I have yet to shop for fresh produce. I have no qualms about buying household items online, but fresh seafood and meat, and even fruits and vegetables? Are they really as good and fresh as claimed?

Unless you enjoy spanning through rows and rows of shelves just to find the items you want in the supermarket, I guess it only makes sense to shop online since everything is within the reach of your mouse. Without the help of a bodybuilder or a car, I have to admit it can be quite tedious lugging your goods home especially if you are buying bulky items like rice and laundry detergents.

Well, I am running out of cleaning supplies, cooking oil and canned food, and these are really heavy items. Since we don't drive, there is no reason why I shouldn't give online grocery shopping a try. Thank goodness my first experience with #PurelyFresh is pretty awesome, especially when it comes with FREE DELIVERY, saving me all the hassle!

Fashionista, are you a fan of the Louis Vuitton French fashion house? Do you own a collection of LV luxury goods?

Well, I got my first #LouisVuitton bag when I was in my early 20s, and I have never looked back since. I probably owned twice the amount of LVs in this photo, but have since sold many of them making ways for other brands.
