Toki Q

 The first time I saw Toki Q was about a month ago, we were walking to Tea Tap and it so happened that Toki Q was just across the street!  Little did I know that it was Pat Dy's!  Yes, THE Pat Dy!  My wonderful wedding photographer, Pat Dy! Yesterday, I received an email from him inviting me to try the place - and last night, my Panget and I, together with Yaya D. and Kailee - we tried this place out! I was very curious on the rotating barbeque!  So I immediately asked the cook, he said that they will be running the machine in a few minutes to show me.  He was telling me that there are three (3) different speeds - depending on the meat or item to be cooked.  The machine had these clips that held the sticks of the yakitoris, these lead the meats to a griller - then it will lead the meats to be dipped into the sauce (if needed, not all meats are dipped in the sauces).  It was fun to watch because the cook didn't need to keep on turning and tossing the sticks.  I faile

D'Little Gyoza House

I've been seeing this place for months now, but it was only yesterday that I was able to go and check this place out.  It was just after office hours and so I was the only person there.  The location is quite weird because you won't be able to see it unless you pass by Miller Street often, and Miller Street isn't exactly a high traffic street for restaurant seekers - the area is actually mostly warehouses mixed in a residential area.  The signage is quite small, so if you are coming from Baler Street - its not really visible. So yesterday, I went and ordered their Orginal gyoza and Chili gyoza for take out.  The service was quite fast because I was the only one there (it was just after office hours).  The waiter was also nice enough to suggest that I try their other dishes like the fried rice and ramens.  But since I was only after the gyozas, I politely declined. While inside the car - the wonderful aroma of the gyozas taunted me!  They smelled soooo wonderful! 

Lotion Smotion Potion!

Last Saturday, my friend Selene who is a LOTION ADDICT was telling me that she found a wonderful lotion that is non-greasy and absorbs easily.  Being a person who dislikes lotion (I only like lotions when I'm travelling) I took it with a grain of salt. She then showed me the lotion - it was VANILLA! I was instantly interested - you see, I have a weakness for Vanilla flavored anything!  Hahaha.. She then told me to try it and I did. And she was telling the truth! The lotion was WONDERFUL!!  Selene was telling the truth when she said it was non-greasy!  The reason why I hate lotions is because of the greasy feeling!  And this one is PERFECT for me! :) Would you believe that, that same night - I smothered it all over?  That's how much I LOVE THE LOTION! :)  I'm so happy that I finally found THE perfect lotion for me!! :) The lotion is from Vanilla & Co., I was surprised that its a local company. I wish they had a facial moisturizer that is like that!  Is it
