#AskTheChef - Brunch at VCR


How's everyone's weekend? It's been quite a stressful week for me at.....home.
Well, a little stress from work but it's still good but at home, it's a little out of control.

So, for the past 2 days, it's been nothing but relaxing thankfully!

Photos are taken with Sony Alpha 6000 with no editing.

My view this morning.

#OOTD this morning. Striped skirt from Tapas Fashion in Paradigm Mall. Flats from Tizio, Pavilion KL.

Sunday is never complete without a good cuppa! (and brunch as a bonus :P)
So I took Babe to VCR which I have went once here with the girls but it's an entirely new place for him!

VCR full menu and price

Latte at RM 12.

Usually Babe will order the big breakfast but he changed his mind this time and ventured onto something new:

Turkish Egg Style (RM26) comes with chickpeas, chicken chipolata, spinach Greek yogurt, toasted pistachio and poached eggs and sour dough at the side.

Unfortunately, he didn't like it. It tasted a little odd for him probably due to the yogurt.

While I had this:

Potato waffle (RM24) - Russet potato waffle, mushroom friccasse (I don't know what it means too), herb salad, tomato fondue and poached eggs.

I'm always a sucker for mushrooms. Honestly, this was the reason I insisted to come to VCR again.
It didn't quite disappoint but I think it could use more flavours?
Tasted a little bland and I'm not a fan of the herb salad..I thought it was spring onion initially. :P

Verdict? Totally not worth the price but I don't mind trying new things, just not too sure if I'll be back for the same food.

Have a good week ahead!

Shu Uemura Foundation Review: Lightbulb Foundation vs. skin:FIT Cosmetic Water Foundation

This is the review I have been waiting for for the past months!
Finally after experiencing these 2 foundation, I can come up with a short review on them and which is my favorite!
I will not go into details as I'm not a make up expert and I do not want to fake things up by pretending as if I know what cosmetic water is!
So, here's my side by side comparison on both foundation based on 4 major characteristics of the foundation:

1. Bottle design

Lightbulb: Sturdy and heavier than skin:FIT's. Cylindrical shape, just like skin:FIT, no gripping issues. Nothing unique.
skin:FIT: Smaller than lightbulb and easier to bring around for travelling. No gripping issues, too!
WINNER: Draw, depending on the situation at which you are using the foundation. If you travel a lot, skin:FIT would be a better choice.
2. Texture of liquid

Lightbulb: Thick with buildable coverage. Perfect for those who like to look flawless upon application.
skin:FIT: Lightweight and more liquid than lightbulb. Pouring the foundation onto the palm might be a hassle as the liquid tends to run down the lines on the palm so extra caution is needed. 
WINNER: Lightbulb for me, of course! I love foundation that does its job well and hassle-free!
3. Application method

Lightbulb: Comes with a unique custom sponge. Both ends of the sponge are catered for different purposes. The rounded end is to give you a flawless and glowy finish while the sharper end is to enable you to reach the corners which are difficult to reach.

skin:FIT: Also comes with a pentagon-shaped sponge with a brush function on one side to pick up the liquid and spread across the face while the other side is to absorb the excess liquid.

WINNER: Draw, cannot be compared directly since both application methods are different.

4. Finishing look

Lightbulb: Glowy, smooth and dewy look.

skin:FIT: Lightweight and no finishing powder needed. Suitable for those who do not like heavy make up.

WINNER: Lightbulb because I'm all for the glowy look!

I guess it's pretty obvious I like the Lightbulb foundation better haha. 

skin:FIT is great for those who are not used to heavy make up and prefer to wear foundation on a 
daily basis as it is lightweight and the coverage is just nice for daily usage.

Lightbulb on the other hand gives a really good glowy finishing which I really love because it can transform my dull skin to a healthier-looking one!

Hope this helps!
