La Biosthetique Paris Press Launch

I was honoured to be a part of the La Biosthetique Paris Press Launch, so thank you  La Biosthetique Paris and team for having me to the very informative launch on  La Biosthetique Paris. So what is La Biosthetique Paris? La Biosthetique comes from Paris, and from what was witnessed at the launch was that the brand has one of the most detailed hair-care products out there in the market.

Some snacks to much on which was very thoughtful
The origins of the brand is that it began as a laboratory that took pride in fixing hair problems by only using natural curated products which sums back to traditional beliefs of getting herbs to work its magic. It started within the Black Forest in Germany, surrounded by nature of course, in the year 1947.

We had Alexander as the La Biosthetique representative. 
And if you don't get what i meant about detailed hair-care products, well, they have actually took a consideration into including products for babies, called "Babybios" scented with Lavender and Chamomile which resolves the issue of cradle cap by helping weak keratin structure and ineffective gland activities. Back int he 1950's, it used to be an issue which thanks to La Biosthetique Paris, helped a lot o kids out there which resulted to became a developing product that has an ideal to describe beauty.

Do you even see what i mean? Thats not even all! There have more than you can imagine to specialised to your hair care needs, which i think they have really put some thought into getting the right treatment that your hair needs. La Biosthetique Paris has personalised every experience for every customers from the environment to the whole treatment process which does not require to be attached to the brand as Alexander has mentioned if you have used it for too long, it might not have any effect after a while.

A demonstration on the results before and after was done by using La Biosthetique.
Scalp check demonstration.
Alexander has mentioned that scalp care is top priority at  La Biosthetique, and of course with top priority there is actually a special scalp test kit that helps hair care professionals to determine whatever issues the customer has before recommending a specific range. At at the end of the scalp test kit, it also instantly diagnose the pH balance, dandruff and sebum levels on the hair.  Did you know that from a ge 25 onwards, your hair quality will slowly start losing its natural elasticity? 

Demonstrating, with every biostetique treatment, you'll receive a relaxing aroma head massage
I think as a customer myself, it is a question why we can't find these brands available at pharmacies? Well, the reason to that is because they prefer having hair care specialist to go through your hair and determine which hair-care product suits you best. Definitely not mass produced to be bought by everyone because its specialised to serve the suited needs of each customer. Also not to forget the special treatment of a head massage with every La Bisothetique treatment which will be given to you before the treatment start to relax your mood, and roots.

A hair up-do demonstration was also given by Director of Vogue Nationale, Todd Arndt.
So i think it can be said that La Biosthetique is specially catered to those who want to solve issues with their hair. With such a wide range in their collection, it can be said that its does its job into fixing your issues from hair fall, to dandruff to even the quality of every strand on your hair.

Their special organic tea to relax you before every treatment.
The wide range of La Biosthetique.
If you would like to know more about La Biosthetique, do head over their Official Facebook Page and Official Website. And you'll know what i mean when i say specialised. In Malaysia, their products are only available in certain salons, which i have listed below.

I'll be getting my scalp treatment done soon and i can't wait to tell you all about it !

Yuzen Japanese Restaurant [REVIEW]

This goes out to to you Japanese cuisine lovers. And of course, we all know when it comes to Japanese cuisine, its always priced at a higher end in Malaysia. But fret not, cause i've discovered somewhere more affordable to enjoy Japanese cuisine at a lower casual cost, with superb quality assured too! Introducing, Yuzen Japanese Restaurant

Indoor dining area.
Outdoor dining area.
Thanks to Food-ink and also Machi, the owner of Yuzen, for giving me the opportunity to tryout their amazing menu options. And don't get me started about the food. Yums. Well, one of the highlights of the Restaurant would be that they provide "O-makase" which means "I'll leave it to you" or in a more general term, Chefs special. If you're afraid of the price, well, you don't have to worry! They provide o-makase based on your budget, or you can just ask the owner of the restaurant, for recommendations as he's usually around the restaurant always making new friends with customers. 

What makes Yuzen, a one of a kind restaurant in Malaysia would be that they actually import their sashimi, fresh from Japan daily! How amazing is that? No wonder the food taste so good! And through the photos that i've attached above, you can clearly see how fresh it is. After eating sashimi at Yuzen, it would be a challenge to go to other Japanese Franchise in Malaysia as i find that this was one of the best i've had! One of the closest Restaurants to authentic Japan cuisine.

Salmon Ikura Tataki - RM28
As appetisers, first we had their "Salmon Ikura Tataki" which is served as Sashimi, but what makes it special is that its lightly cooked on the outer layer of the salmon and leads to a raw centre. YUMS! If you have never been daring enough to try Sashimi, then this is the best way to begin with! I loved the thin sliced onion on the top, as it compliments the taste of the salmon. ARGH *drools*

Tuna Tataki Avocado - RM22
Next on the appetisers list would be the "Tuna Tataki Avocado" which is similar to the "Salmon Ikura Tataki" where the outer layer is cooked with a raw centre. The dressing was with Japanse Soy sauce with a touch of the famous Japanese Soy Sauce. Not to forget the presentation of it was superb. Can you tell that they put a lot of effort to present it as if you're paying for fine dining? 

Crab Meat Chawan Mushi - RM10
This, THIS, was delicious! As you can see in the photo, they were generous enough to arrange the Chawan Mushi with the fillings on the outer part to show me the ingredient of the Chawan Mushi. After having my Chawan Mushi here, i don't think any other Chawan Mushi would be the same. This was irresistible! One of the best, and at a price of RM10?! This is a MUST order when you visit.

Salmon Teriyaki
This was my favourite among everything else. The Salmon Teriyaki was nicely done! This is what i call a perfect Teriyaki Salmon, where it wasn't overcooked, which is usually a common mistake done when cooking salmon, and also, the Teriyaki was the highlight. The mashed potatoes compliments the Salmon which balances the taste perfectly!

Surume Oka Teriyaki (Squid) RM20.50
This is basically sliced squid grilled in Teriyaki sauce and according to the owner of Yuzen, the highlight of this dish would be the dip for the squid. He suggested to try just the squid on my first bite, followed by my second bite adding the squid into the dip. The dipping sauce had a slight taste of soy sauce and chicken liver, which was a pleasant taste even though I'm not a fan of chicken liver. This was definitely an exception! 

Chicken Katsu Tororro - RM25
And to end the day, this was the last dish served. Chicken Katsu basically means Japanese Fried Chicken and what makes this dish unique was the yam sauce topped on the Chicken Katsu. The Yam isn't our usual yam and its imported all the way from Japan. We were suggested to mix the sauce and the chicken before consuming it and the yam texture was similar to raw egg yolk, but its not egg. This is highly recommended if you have never tried Japanese Yam. The owner was kind enough to show me what the Japanese Yam looked like, and below would be the photo of the Japanese Yam.

Japanese Yam
If you ask me, its pretty large than our usual Yams. Fun fact: This particular yam has a certain way to handle it as the outer layer or the skin can cause rashes when in contact with skin. yikes! But the benefits of consuming this are priceless. Very good for your body and in numerous research studies, it has been used in a variety of Asian medicinal disciplines for centuries to heal diabetes, diarrhoea, asthma, dry cough and frequent urination. 

Well, to end my post here would be an image of this really cute souvenir done by Stella, the founder of Food-Ink which i find super duper adorable and creative! Thank you for this really cute sushi Stella. Also, i might be heading back there again soon to try other dishes with my family. If you have any questions to ask, do not hesitate to leave a comment below. 

Before i forget, they also provide special private rooms too for private dining! 2 rooms for 8 people, which can also be a room for 16 and also 2 rooms for 2 people, to enjoy a more intimate dining session with NO EXTRA CHARGES. Also, a hint by the owner, if you're planning to bring your special partner on a  date, fret not as they will truly maximise the occasion for you for extra special service to make sure you and your partner would enjoy your dining experience at Yuzen. 

Here's a video by Food-Inks on Yuzen Japanese Restaurant. In an overall, i would really recommend Japanese cuisine lovers to drop by Yuzen to enjoy Japanese cuisine. I would personally give 4.5 stars out of 5. So what are you waiting for? Why pay more to enjoy Japanese food. I have rest my case.

Cerro Qreen Fashion Makeup Brush Set (Natural Animal Wool) - Black in 10 Pieces [REVIEW]

If you've been looking for affordable make up brushes! Well, here's what i have for you, introducing to you Cerro Qreen, from Natta Cosme. And of course, before talking about the brushes, you might also need to know where i got my make up brushes from. Am i right? Of course i am! :)

So, heres where i got my brushes from. Its from a site called Natta Cosme where they provide numerous beauty products that brings out the true physical beauty of the people, or at least, thats what it says on their site. The products would have a variety of skin care, body wash and of course, make up sets! 

When i received my parcel, it was all wrapped in a box by Natta Cosme to ensure that your products are well kept to prevent from damage during postage. And i also love how efficient their courier service is cause i didn't need to wait that long to receive it right in front of my door step. Below would be a photo of the box and a photo when i first opened the box. 

Not that its efficient, but the collection that they have is pretty irresistible i must say. You can get beauty products from a variety of countries such as Japan, Taiwan, Korea, America and etc. Which is good as its pretty hard for us to get good quality beauty products here in Malaysia. Boohoo. 

So, here's what i got, a Cerro Qreen Fashion Makeup Brush Set (Natural Animal Wool) - Black in 10 Pieces. I love the fact that it comes in a soft PU leather pouch so that all my brushes are kept organised and not everywhere on my dressing table. And also, its convenient when I'm bringing it out to my wanderlust trips as everything i need would all be in this pouch, ready-to-go. 

Whats in this 10 piece Make Up Brush set? Let me spill it out for you:

1. Powder Brush (Goats Hair)
2. Blush Shadow Brush (Goats Hair)
3. Foundation Brush (Fiber) 
4. Fan Brush (Goats Hair)
5. Large eye Shadow Brush (Pony Hair)
6. Small Eye Shadow Brush (Pony Hair)
7. Eyebrow Brush (Fiber)
8. Eyeliner Brush (Fiber)
9. Eyelash Brush (Nylon)
10. Lip Brush (Fiber) 
11. A cosmetic Bag. 

Also, for today, i wanted to try a natural look cause i didn't want to look too glamorous on a weekend. lol. And yes, its a lazy weekend ahead for me. Here's a clearer photo what the brushes look like, aren't they awesome.  So, for my natural look, i've decided to tryout the powder brush, the blusher shadow brush, the lip brush and the small eyeshadow brush.

First off, lets start with the Powder brush I love the length of the brush and the handle is easy to hold on to. The brush is made out of goats hair and its really good at picking the right amount of powder on the brush. You can refer to the photo below of how good it grabs hold of the powder which isn't to dense. This helps apply sufficient amount of powder on your face instead of looking like you have a thick layer of powder on your face.

Next would be, the blusher shadow. I love the texture of it, similar to the powder brush, it has a good flat surface so that when you apply your blusher or if your doing contouring, it would be easy to make sure that the application is smooth on the surface of your skin.

And last but not least, the lip brush and the small eyeshadow brush. I love how the lip brush comes with a cover so that it doesn't ruin the bag when you keep it back in. And also the fact that the cover acts as a handle for easy application too. Same goes to the small eyeshadow brush, made by pony hair, which collects enough eyeshadow to colour your eyelids. If you're wondering what shade i was using, it was gold. Not that noticeable in photos but it shines in sunlight. Teehee

Well, in an overall view, i love the whole collection of Cerro Qreen as quality is assured and proven too *wink. So if you're looking for affordable make up brushes in a set, do not forget to check out Natta Cosme to get these amazing brushes with additional discounts. The original price for "Cerro Qreen Fashion Makeup Brush Set (Natural Animal Wool) - Black in 10 Pieces" would be RM75.90 but currently on sale on the website for RM60.72! That is crazy! which means its less than RM10 per brush.
