Lunch - 30.11.2012

My helper is such a brilliant cook, I've no choice but to post this.

Home Made Chicken Rice
 The soup is nice with a hint of pepper. Chicken taste isn't too over-powering.
The rice? According to J, it's not as flavorful but tasted alright to me. Those sold outside are flavorful no doubt but then again, you wouldn't really know what went in there.
She added lots of cucumber and coriander leaves which gives a refreshing touch to the dish.
Verdict: I like. ^^

Schiap

I'm going to show you a nail polish I purchased from NARS recently.

NARS Nail Polish in Schiap
 
 
Look at the color! This nail polish leaves me very impressed upon the first stroke! Great Job NARS!!!
 
BUT!!! Not all look good. Remember the one I purchased as well? Trouville. This was what I said previously:
I like that this is a light and palatable color. Pretty sweet without being too sharp, bold or over-powering.
 
Well, over the next few days, I don't quite like how it turned out. I soon got bored of it.

Cyber Colors Gemstone Silky Gloss

I'm going to talk about Cyber Colors Gemstone Silky Gloss which I got from Bellabox - November issue. The one presented to me is in shade 08 Cocoa.

 
How it looks like on my hand
 
How it looks on my lips
 
My lips are pretty dark to be honest. It must be the lighting. In person, the gloss color look just like the one you see on my hand.

Random

Sweet & Sour Pork with Rice
My dinner one day
Cooked by my helper - Ms. S
Verdict: Nice but will be better if she use fresh pineapples instead of canned ones.
Seems like there's no ripe pineapples in the market at point of purchase.
 
Green Tea Latte
Presented by Ms. G, bought by her son from Japan
 
Verdict: Green tea flavor not strong, too sweet, not nice.
Upon consumption, only taste the creamer and sweetness. Nothing else.
Disappointed. Luckily, there's only 5 packets in a box and I was given 1 box.

Saturday - 24.11.2012

Kiddos don't have their Abacus lessons today and that gives us lots of free time in the afternoon. Lots? Ok I exaggerated. It's just a couple of hours more. Nonetheless, it's enough to squeeze in a movie.

Rise of the Guardians
This is a nice movie.
Nice graphics.
Lots of humor.
Good movie for the kids.
 
I especially like the baby tooth fairy. So small and adorable. I'll definitely go buy the DVD when it's out.

Previously, I applied NARS Orgasm the normal way as I would with a MAC blush. I ended up looking like an Ang Ku Kueh. I then realised that NARS blushes are very pigmented and the next time round (which is this time), I applied with a light hand and viola! I do like NARS Deep Throat - subtle, light pinkish tone, sweet and nice at the same time.

I like it. It's not a unique shade though. I believe O.P.I. has something similar.
