My Beauty Diary - Vanilla Souffle face scrub review

I have received a surprise present from my friend who just came back from Taiwan. My Beauty Diary - Vanilla Souffle face scrub.
My Beauty Diary is well-known and famous in Taiwan for its skin care products such as their beauty masks!! This Vanilla Souffle face scrub looks really cool~ 

My Beauty Diary - Vanilla Souffle face scrub (120 ml)
- Pleasant mousse gently removes dead cells, leave skin soft & smooth.
It works just like a facial foam cleanser type, just that it is very creamy and concentrated. It reminds me of Biore marshmallow whip facial wash.  I gently massage it on my skin for around 1 min, the foam still stay thick creamy =) I have several pictures, you can see below:

• Shake the Vanilla Soufflé bottle really well, squirt the product onto your palm with the bottle turned diagonally upside down.
• About the size of a golf ball would do.
• Massage onto cleansed face in circular motions for about one minute. Don't forget the neck area.
• Rinse off with water.

 In just 1 squirt, the white mousse can cover my skin well and it stays thick creamy throughout. After massage, I cleanse it away with water:

My review:
Personally this My Beauty Diary - Vanilla Souffle face scrub works well for me, my skin is silky soft and very clean after use. I simply like the mousse- white light, fluffy, foamy and super velvety smooth which covers my skin entirely and washes off very easily with water, revealed my clean and clear skin in about 5 mins without tightness and discomfort. After deep cleansing, now its time for me to use My Beauty Diary mask for a good night skin hydration sleep! ^_^

Wan He Lou

I believe everyone loves delicious  and nice food so do I! Previously I have heard quite a lot of good reviews about Wan He Lou from my fellow friends and relatives who came here for their lunch or  dinner. I was very honored to be invited for this food tasting in Wan He Lou.

Wan He Lou (萬合樓) is located at 65 Maude Road #01-01 Singpore 208347 which is the heart of Jalan Besar. Below is their operating hours:

Monday – Sunday
Lunch: 11am to 230pm
Dinner: 5pm to 1030pm

I was impressed by the decoration of  Wan He Lou, is simple, cozy, which has its own uniqueness. An ideal place for holding festive celebration or a gathering with family and friends!
Spotted some pictures that were taken for Chief Lau with artists like local mediacorp artist - Edmund Chen, Xiang Yun and Zoe Tay Wow!!!
We met up Wan He Lou Boss - Vincent Cheong, had great time chit chatting with him and other fellow bloggers (Michael Charles Loh and Tracy) who were also invited to this food tasting.

We were served a glass of vegetable juice (see pic below) which was made of pineapple, cai xin ( a kind of chinese vegetable) and sour plum.  Its very refreshing and healthy drink, best to have it before you actually start your meal and is suitable for weather like Singapore hot and humid.
Personally I do not like to eat most of the vegetable ...even juices. However. I find this vegetable juice very tasty and not bitter at all =)
Wan He Lou is having 5-course X'mas set meal lunch / dinner ($56.50 per pax)
The first dish: Chinese Style Turkey Roll with Japanese sauce dressing
The second dish: Pan Fried Cod Fish with Fruit Compote with pomelo sauce
The third dish : Signature Lobster Porridge (Rock lobster deep sea) 

I have tried various lobster porridge before, personally I prefer Wan He Lou's because the stock of the porridge lets out a delightful aroma of the lobster and the lobster meat is fresh and firm.
The fourth dish: Green Dragon Vegetable with Sea Cucumber & Hon Shimeji Mushroom.
Other dish we have tried - (1) Crispy Lotus with Salted Egg ($11.90) is popular among the ladies which is one of my favourite dish too! I love the combination of fragrant salted egg with crispy lotus just like a snack to me.
(2) Pan Fried Kurobuta Pork ($14.90)which is my next favourite dish. The pork is tender and juicy with robustic sauce. 
(3) Green ginger cod steamed - My 3rd favourite dish. The cod fish is soft and melt is my mouth with fragrant green ginger  gravy. * Thumbs up*
A photo of myself and Tracy =)

Overall we enjoyed ourselves dining at Wan He Lou with delicious food and drinks. Moreover the prices are reasonable and worthwhile.
