Coconut Soup with Chicken and Goji Berries Recipe ( 清甜椰子鸡汤 )

refreshing coconut soup with chicken goji berries recipe
This healthy Coconut Soup was inspired after a trip to Yeh Ting ( 椰庭 ), a Chinese restaurant specializing in Hainanese cuisine. Their signature dish is the Coconut with Chicken Soup Pot using fresh coconut water and coconut meat.

The broth has a mild sweet flavour and is extremely refreshing unlike the usual Steamboat, which makes you keep wanting to drink more. Hence, I came up with my very own version of Coconut Soup with Chicken and Goji Berries Recipe ( 清甜椰子鸡汤 ) which requires only 3 ingredients. Try cooking it and see if you like it as much!

How to Prep Your Skin for Long-Haul Flight + Beauty Giveaway!

how to prep your skin for overnight flight
Long haul flight leaves you dehydrated and weary, regardless of you flying the Economy, Business or even First Class. Trust me, the air up there will take a toll on your skin.

It is important to travel with a well-cleansed skin and avoid wearing makeup if possible. Take the minimalist approach particularly on long haul or overnight flight. Makeup holds onto dirt and certain foundation and powder can dehydrate your skin even more. The key is: Let Your Skin Breathe.

If you wanna know the condition of your skin, beauty brands like SK-II has this special device that can analyze the 5 dimensions of your skin health such as Radiance Enhancement, Texture Refinement, Firmess Power, Spot Control and Wrinkle Resilience. The Magic Ring Test is complimentary and you could pop by any SK-II counters to request for this test to check your skin age. The last I did mine was in 2016 at the age of 51, and I was pleased to learn that my skin age was just 35 years old! I did another one in April this year, and was equally surprised that my skin is maintaining well without the use of any botox or fillers. 38-year-old skin age for a 53? Not a bad score, isn’t it?

I scored almost perfect in all 5 dimensions, except for Texture Refinement which is at 83%. I am glad that I am doing good especially in maintaining my Spot Control with my regular laser for pigmentation at EHA Clinic.

kani doraku dotombori honten snow crab review
Foodies heading to Osaka will not miss this huge crab signage along the famous Dotomburi Street. In fact, there are couple of them spotted during our last trip there.

Kani Doraku ( かに道楽 ) is one of the most iconic restaurants in Osaka. With outlets all over Japan, Kani Doraku serves various types of crustacean such as King Crabs, Snow Crabs and Rock Crabs.

There are a wide assortment of crab dishes, but I strongly recommend you to take the lunch / dinner courses which start from a reasonable 2,500 Yen/person ( approx USD 23/pax ) instead of going Ala Carte, as courses are more pocket-friendly and you can savour the different types of cooking style.

Well, my family picked the Sumire ( すみれ ) Course at 4,200 Yen/person. Let the food shots speak for themselves!

fernblock heliocare oral purewhite radiance max 240 review
Tired of skincare products that don’t deliver results? Are you having dull skin, dark spots, uneven skin tone, and looking for a clinically proven product that works from inside out?

The market is flooding with skin whitening creams, and many skin lighteners still carry chemicals and harmful bleaching ingredients that may damage our skin, and pose serious health risks if used for prolonged periods. Hence, care should be taken when choosing a whitening skincare product; be it oral or topical application.

heliocare purewhite radiance max 240 review
When using any skin whitening product, it is vital that you place your health first and read if there are any side effects of using it. To be safe, choose a plant-based beauty supplement such as Heliocare Purewhite Radiance Max 240 that offers vegetable-based capsules. What possibly could be more convenient to get your daily dose than just by popping these whitening pills?

Ganglion Cyst Removal Surgery or Simply Needle Aspiration

ganglion cyst treatments aspiration surgery options
A Ganglion Cyst is a bump on top of a joint or the covering of a tendon. The swelling may feel hard and firm, but it is just a jelly-like fluid inside the cyst.

More common among women, Ganglion Cysts generally occur on the back of the hand or they can also grow on the palm side of the wrist. To date, the cause of these cysts is still unknown.

For those following me on Facebook, you would have known that I had a surgery recently to remove my Ganglion Cyst. It popped out of nowhere at the back my hand early last year, and had me real worried. It got painful as time went by, and I decided to seek medical help.
