[Eating Out] BMS Organics Dinner

bms collage2We were heading for the movie premiere of Kisah Paling Gengster the other day. Hubby was hungry already, so we decided to head over to BMS Organics at One Utama to have a healthy dinner (we have been eating heartily for the past one week since Pat’s sister was back from UK! Too much of “good” food *_^).

bms collagebms4This was my first time dining there. I ordered the Vegetarian Vermicelli Soup with soy milk, black sesame healthy drink and hubby ordered the fried rice with ginger tea. Main course comes with a small shot of ginger tea and two spirulina tablets. Interesting!

bms7bms6I must say the ginger tea was superb! The aroma of the ginger was exceptionally strong but VERY good! It hits you hard. The fried rice tasted much better than my vermicelli soup I must confess. Perhaps the soup was quite light. Nonetheless, it was a great meal as my dish was filled with lots of mushrooms and cilantro (which I love). They also sell a great deal of organic produce and products, which is worth checking out! After all that series of family dinners recently, I guess it’s high time I go back to my simple meals, eating more healthily from here onwards *_^

[Instagram] Days Without The Boys

ImageDo I miss them, yes and no. My boys were away at their grandparents place up North for the school holidays last week. Had some time to kill. Did my fair share of window shopping, instagrammED more pictures, perhaps, and had a bit more time for myself. Whenever they are around, my attention would be on them more, naturally. Not a bad thing at all, I adore my two little boys (though they are so grown up **and bigger in sizes** by now). Well, like most people say, they will forever be your little kids!

Good food (home cooked and eating out), good time, good catching up with certain things but great that now they are back home, with us!

Hope you had a great week before and happy week ahead. Stay luminous, always *_^

[Eating Out] A Great Thai Surprise

We went hunting for food at One Utama that day before my hubby’s movie, Unbeatable. We found ourselves seated at this quiet Thai restaurant called Old Siam Kopitiam at the New Wing food area. We ordered an appetizer called Fried Toufu and Pat was having his rice dish, I ordered a noodle dish and we wrapped up the meal with a dessert and a drink to share. It was surprisingly very delicious, granted that I seldom take Thai food (Not because I don’t like it but my tummy usually can’t handle the HEAT! The next day, I will usually have diarrhea and… all right, enough said!).

Anyway, back to our meal. It was absolutely awesome and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Give the small little outlet a try the next time you are at One Utama. Am sure you will be pleasantly surprised, like me and my hubby *_^

The Thai Laksa looks really divine when it came. I looked at the dish and immediately, it reminded me of the Kelantanese laksa I used to grow up with back in my home town. When I poured the Thai green curry over the white soft coiled-up noodle, it even tasted like the laksa back home (though the Kelantanese laksa’s gravy colour is different, it is grayish instead of green in colour). My hubby’s stir-fried pork with rice dish was so yummilicious that I forgot to snap a picture! The basil made the dish interestingly good!

This dish may look docile, but beware of the fried dried chillies (in red), they are a little landmine! Can explode like a bomb in your mouth *_^

It comes with lots of greens - chopped up long beans and bean sprouts (with a golden half boiled egg, cut half)

[Cooking] A Little Black Is Good

ImageImageImageBeen meaning to share this for some time. This was what I cooked the other night for dinner. Though it may (not) look appetizing, but apparently, black fungus is very good for detoxifying our blood and helps maintain good health for our kidney (I love these). So, no harm eating some “black”/ dark coloured food for our meals. I made mushroom soup from white button mushrooms (with potatoes) and it turned out black! (but it was really creamy, thick and delicious, my hubby will vouch for me *_^) So, I called this dinner “Black Dinner”. IĀ also fried egg with bitter gourds (which are never my sons favourite!). Nonetheless, not that important if it’s healthy, no? Haha. Better be healthy than be choosy!

Stay luminous and happy, always.Imagemushroom soupImage

Since we are on the subject of food, this was what we ate for breakfast yesterday, on a Sunday morning at Damansara Perdana. Since we moved away from there, my son, Aidan has been craving for TK Chong’s Chicken Hor Fun. Finally, we had a chance to go there, but we both realized that it tasted a little different than previously. After talking to the owner, only then we found out why. Apparently, the group of workers who used to prepare the dishes were no longer working there. At times, cooking is very uniquely “individualized”. Even though you may be given the same ingredients, each person’s cooking will come out tasting very different. This is one of my favourite FOOD BLOGS. It’s called My New Roots by Sarah Britton. She has amazing organic and healthy food recipes on her blog. Worth checking out! Here for more.

My Little Beauty Fun

Image

“Girls just want to have fun!”, Cyndi Lauper sang long long time ago, yet it still rings so true till today (no matter how “young” you are). This is my fun. Victoria’s Secret Kissable Whipped Body Creme (here for more). This one is very special to me, as it was a gift to me when my hubby went on a US work trip, I use it only on special occasions *_^ Kanebo Blanchir Superior Moisturizer (here for more). I like this for its light texture. Can’t get enough of this. This is a serum which I go to, for some anti-aging solution. Love my Nukin Ageloc Future Serum (here for more) as it works on a cellular level to combat signs of aging. I would slather on a little of Young Blood Mineral Primer (here for more) before my foundation. It does help to prime the skin and I adore the clear fluid. Besides, it’s healthy with no harmful chemicals (this has become more important to me as I age). Bobbi Brown lip balm to protect my lips (here for more). Most of all, an SPF50+, PA++ Sun Shades sunblock for my everyday sun protection from Melaleuca (here for more). This is nice because it is light and does not leave my skin feeling sticky (which I can’t stand). This is what I am using for now, perhaps I may try something new next time? Will see.

What’s your beauty fun? Share with me, if any. Would love to know.

Have a luminous Tuesday morning and be happy! See how my Kanebo Blanchir Superior Deep White Milk Conditioner “glows” in the dark >_<Image
