Adora Natural castile soaps for your household.

Quite honestly, I don't do much sponsored reviews these days. 
However if I do, it's because I really love the products and would personally really use them for myself, my family, and would advocate using them :)

I'm a sucker for eco-friendly and natural products. Products that are safe to use and also kind to animals and to our environment. 
As such, I am constantly on the lookout for such products.

When I was first introduced to Adora Natural, I like that their castile soaps use coconut oil and essential oils in their ingredients and are free of sulphates. They also do not do product-testing on animals.

Did you also know that Adora Natural is a Singapore-grown product? 
Now that's one more reason for you to try this lovely product.
Because support local ya :D

You may purchase them from their various online platforms (Whatsapp +65 96581468, Carousell, Shopee, Lazada) and also through DMs on Instagram @adoranatural .

Thank you Berry from Adora Natural for your lovely castile soaps once again!
Love 'em! 💕

Food review: Belly Umami


2020 was a year of new discovery for the world.
For me, one of the discoveries was I found my Secondary school friend again, after some twenty years, through my group of girl friends, and that was when I found out he had started his own private Omakase dining!

I would like to introduce to you the man behind BELLY UMAMI whom, not to be mistaken as the one standing behind me in the following pic, you will see a couple of photos away. 

Also not these two... they only know how to eat.

Keep scrolling...

Yeap that's my friend right there - Bernard, the man behind Belly Umami!

The first dish was this cold tofu with salted egg crumbs and white sesame seeds with edible flowers as garnishing

Next was the herbal chicken with generous amounts of herbs and chrysanthemum flowers, which added a light floral aroma to the chicken.

This Asam fish head came next, a spicy welcome in the inclement weather.

And this crispy Pork Crackling with white wine sauce, garlic and thyme. 
Oh my ham, where do I even start? It's so crisp I could break the skin like a cracker.

The Nyonya zhap-chai was also very authentic. If my Peranakan husband and in-laws think it is as good as Grandma's, you have to take their word for it!

These juicy cockles in butter and garlic was one of my favourite. I love see hum!

And they saved the best for last - Bernard's signature Crab bee hoon.
The crab roe, together with the bee hoon laced with white wine, was simply orgasm in my mouth!

Thank you Bernard and team at Belly Umami for hosting my family tonight (as law-abiding citizens we kept to a group of 8).
We thoroughly enjoyed the dinner! I'm secretly hoping my helper will take inspiration from you and cook us the Asam fish head LOL.

Please head over to  BELLY UMAMI's Facebook page  for more menu items and information!

I really admire Bernard's grit and passion for cooking, and all his dishes are carefully curated and created by himself. 
I can guarantee, you will not be disappointed :)

Wishing you guys an abundant 2021 ahead! Cheers everyone!
