Purposeful Unique Products in TOKUYA Malaysia

January 28, 2018 1
Come this Chinese New Year, the best time at the beginning of every year is to spring clean the whole home! Spring cleaning is more fun when you get to shop shop shop for new stuffs to furnish the home with!

At TOKUYA in Malaysia, their newly opened outlet at Arcoris Mont' Kiara carries a concept of "Purposeful Unique".

Incase you were wondering, "Purposeful" is referring to their placement of their products to inspire people to make bold decisions and "Unique" is in the way no one can replicate how the brand lifts the spirits of people and brings people on a unique journey through modern & traditional Japanese via its product varieties.

It's concept is also similar to Japan 100-Yen stores!

The lowest priced products starts from rm5.80, rm6.80, rm7.80, RM8.80 and some premium items like lunch box sets etc ranges from rm50 to rm100+

There's a wide range with a mix of modern to traditional products from Japan.

I really love how some of the products are beautifully decorated and placed as if it was just meant to be.

These are my RM100 loot!
Chisel set rm6.80, Sealer rm7.50, Safety latch rm7.50, Veg holder for slicing rm5.80, Bag clips rm5.80, Cabinet lock rm5.80 & rm6.80, Bottle cover rm6.80, Rolling pin rm6.80, Laundry net bag rm6.80, Plate rack organiser rm5.80, Socks (for my husband) rm7.50.


Bumped into my fellow blogger friends Pivoine Peony @ MsShamWorldwide and Kathy Wui @ MouseMommyTreats while shopping!


Getting there is a lil tricky for me, because Waze kept taking me to a construction site in between Plaza Mont Kiara and Arcoris!! I ended up heading into Plaza Mont Kiara and the guards said I had to walk over to the building with black windows (across the construction site). So I drove over instead to the tall black window building.


Arcoris is a new building by the way with a mix of SOHO, residential, commercial and office as well.



You can Waze over at : https://waze.to/lr/hw28610kqe

After passing Plaza Mont Kiara, keep left and immediately after the construction site, turn left into Arcoris/Hyatt Hotel Lobby & Parking

THYMOS Anti-HFMD/FLU Spray Review Malaysia

January 25, 2018 0
HFMD, most commonly known as "Hand Foot Mouth Disease". It is the most annoying, painful and infectious condition nobody would like to get infected with!

The worst is, it affects babies too! This is based on my personal experience of the HFMD torture! Back in 2015, when my first beautiful baby boy whom just turned 2 months old and just received his 1mo injection at the hospital. Contracted this HFMD bacteria that lasted up to 5 days and then I got it from him and it took me 7 days to recover.


So as a new parent back then, I never would've thought my baby would come in contact with this HFMD bacteria! We took him to a nearby shopping mall, and had to change his nappy in the baby room.

5 days later my baby was feverish with red liquid-like spots at his face, arms, tummy and thighs. It was odd, because HFMD usually starts with ulcers and spots at palms and soles of feet. After seeing 3 pediatricians, the last one spotted tiny ulcers in the mouth and the fever was subsiding but the red spots were still there. So it was confirmed HFMD!

HFMD lasts 5 to 7 days, sometimes less or more. There's no medication nor injection for it. Just make sure the infected can eat, drink lots of liquid and gets aplenty of rest. And must be quarantined. All surface areas in contact with the infected must be sanitised and disinfected for up to a month! This was my doctor's advise, he said there are up to 6 strains of HFMD bacteria, there's no cure for it and if you got it once, the next time you can get it again if it is another type of bacteria but of the same HFMD strain. And the HFMD bacteria will continue to stay in the infected body fluids for up to a month even after recovering from it.


Even adults can get infected too! I got it after my baby recovered in 5 days. It took me 7 days to recover!!


Which is why, we must disinfect/sanitize key surfaces where our children may come in contact with! Especially when we don't know if for example, the kid who sat on a public high chair just recovered from HFMD or was even having a FLU sneezing while seated in the chair. Public areas and even schools are at higher risks contamination areas that will require a Revolutionary Airshield Technology from UK like this THYMOS Anti-HFMD/FLU Spray!


Came across this product THYMOS that is clinically proven to kill 99.99% pathogens including HFMD EnteroVirus and Influenza A H1N1 virus and comes in a really handy size. Convenient to pocket it on-the-go. It ain't bulky, fits right into your bag or back pocket. Easy to use!

The patented “Self-Sanitizing” technology contains high-quality activated minerals which generates powerful bacteriostatic electrons to form an invisible, odourless and colourless shield to protect your loved ones. It destroys the pathogens instantly. This unique technology from the UK enables the active minerals to recharge by itself whenever it comes to contact with air molecules, ensuring long lasting 10-day protection. It is also pH5.5 and safe for skin contact. It is suitable to use on your toddlers or even pregnant mothers.

It makes disinfecting toys and surface areas much convenient now! Don't have to wipe away after spraying like most disinfectant sprays out there. Safe for the whole family! Truly helps mother's provide an all-round total defence as it eliminates 99.99% pathogenically induced diseases.


All it takes is just spray over any toys or surface areas that requires disinfecting especially children's dining chairs or high chairs. Even the sofa's, toys. You can even spray them on the pillow and bed too!


Original Price is RM75, now RM69.90

Affordable 5-Star Gourmet Dining in Champignons at Oasis

January 19, 2018 11
Ever wanted to enjoy a 5-star chef gourmet semi-fine dining at a more affordable price but with a sumptuous portion of excellent quality? Well, now you can!



My first experience here was, "WOW"! The pricing on the menu is seriously affordable!



I mean, who gets to eat Foie Gras for RM38!!! Me! And ultimately you too can enjoy 5-star quality meals here!



The variety on the menu is really interesting and I like that it is neat and has as much details in a short and simple explanation of what we will be ordering.



The ones with the mushrooms on the side are the Chef's recommended choice. Why mushrooms you ask? Champignons is actually mushroom in French!



The drinks we had were really unique and some are homemade too!


They served us their homemade bread for starters (off the menu) it tastes really crunchy and delicious! Not your ordinary bread. Kinda like pita bread but crunchy and crispy!


This is their special starter/appetizer, the "Cured Salmon with Orange Mousse" and yes! I thought the Mousse was cheese slice! But no! It's their homemade Orange Mousse. This is truly fine dining experience. I tried to eat it a tiny bit at a time then I decided to gulp it down in one go haha! Surprisingly, the taste blended perfectly when I put the whole thing in my mouth! No kidding!


I will never forget the "Seared Foie Gras with Fig Jam" (RM38) and I will be back again! The last time (8yrs+ ago) I saw Foie Gras on the menu was rm100 over and it was so tiny that I could use a toothpick to eat it at one go! That is how pricey this meal is elsewhere! It's a duck/goose liver by the way. Over here it's perfectly marin


How does it taste like?
Does it have any fishy/bloody smell or taste?
Actually, I will describe this like you're eating a really big fatty 3-layer pork called "Siew Yok" without the meat, just the fats. It's crispy outside and inside fatty juicy and tastes just like "Siew Yoke". The fig jams brings out a really natural sweet flavour and the mini jelly is not "cincau", it's actually red wine jelly. Eat them together and you will be AWE-d!


The "Grilled US Pork Ribs with Plum Sake Glaze" (RM25) were so juicy, moist, tender and satisfying. I could literally salivate right now. It's so damn good! Most ribs are dry or just too much flavouring, and not enough meat. This is tender, juicy and oh-so-delicious too! The pork ribs were marinated in "Plum marinated Sake". You must must try this!


This juicy tender loving "Black Truffle Chicken Breast" (RM35) is another must-have favourite on my list! All these while we have been eating dry, rough and meaty chicken breasts that made us fear of ever ordering this part of the chicken. However, this is deliciously succulent and just lip-smacking juicy with every bite. You will be surprised!! The secret to this is the temperature of cooking this.



"French Onion Soup" (RM18) is really unique! Caramelized onion toast and gruyere cheese espuma. On its own, you can taste the real onion juice in it that is really thick, pure and bittersweet! 



Added with the gruyere cheese espuma, the mixture was so perfect that even my husband who hates cream in general gave it a TWO thumbs up!! With the cream added in, it made the onion soup more flavorful, you can taste the sweetness, saltiness and fragrance all at one go!


This is the "Baked Halibut Fillet with lemon" (RM28). The Halibut Fillet is fresh and generously meaty! Tastes amazing with the lemon and goes perfectly well with the baked seafood rice with tomato and zucchini. This was previously on the Lunch Menu, however due to the amazing feedback received, this dish will now be available on the normal menu.



Their set lunch menu changes every 2 weeks! So if you really like what you had for lunch, tell the waiters/waitress, tell the Chef, tell your friends and family, just tell somebody!! And it may eventually stay on the menu for you to order anytime the whole day! Remember, your feedback is of great value! If you have any food allergy or food preference (eg. vegetarian, etc) you can speak to your server about the ingredients in their dishes before ordering.



As for desserts we had their amazing "Champignons Chocolate Delights" (RM18), specially created as a mushroom shaped chocolate cake with sprinkles of chocolates, sweets, syrup and all the sweet delights in various colours and textures to create a mushroom in the garden effect. As Chef Gary poured to sweet syrup over the dessert, it was mesmerizing!

The Champignons Chocolate Delight that's oh-so-delish and savoury sweet, specially made to sweeten up your day. Neatly designed like a Champignon (Mushroom) in a beautiful garden. . . Chef Gary gently pours the sweet warm syrup over the Champignon Chocolate for a perfect blend of goodness with a secret sparkle surprise that bursts in your mouth at every bite! . . . . Visit them for their official opening on 17th January 2018, 10am to 1pm! You don't wanna miss it!

But the highlight of this dessert is at every bite, there's a sparkle crackling in your mouth that comes from one of their special ingredients here. It's a sweet that crackles when in contact with any liquid.



They also have shelf rack of wines where you get to do wine pairing with food too. And you can even bring your own wine over as corkage fee is only RM30+.



After 15 over years of travelling around the world from Switzerland, London, Dubai to Macau from various venues like Mandarin Oriental hotel, Chef Gary Chang, decided to bring home to Malaysia a taste of 5-star excellent fine dining gourmet experience to the hearts of the people in Malaysia.



Basically with his experience, passion and talent. It is without doubt, every RM worth spending for!!



Incase you were wondering, why so affordable? Where are the ingredients from? You'll be surprised!
The pork is from US, Halibut & Salmon from Norway, Beef & Lamb from New Zealand and Chicken is locally from Malaysia.

Selangor ,Klang valley ~95%
Other states ~5%

4. Future goals? (Eg. Have a cafe or catering)
reach out to the whole Malaysia through retailers n franchising system

5. Besides you who else is helping out?
Whole family is involved..we are a family team of 5 members

6. What food types available? (Eg. Bakgwa, tarts etc)
We do focus a lot on home taste,real food of concept..we want to share what we enjoy as good  food to others .

-Bakgua
-Meatfloss

-Kueh kapit

-Frozen Dimsum Variety
-Famous Lap Cheong (Made together with my mom, using her special recipe)

8. Where to check for updates on next order? (FB page or group or WhatsApp?)
FB : Nicole Ann Ng
Instagram : @nicole_passion

9. Can we have custom made to order request? (Via WhatsApp or FB?)
Yes via FB/Instagram/WA


Some of which are the "Bak Gua" also known as "Barbecued Sweet Meat" which is famous and often seen every Chinese New Year celebration! Usually made with pork or chicken meat.


I love Nicole's Homemade "Bak Gua" because it's succulent, juicy, tender and it's sweetness is just perfect! It keeps you wanting more! Best of all, NO PRESERVATIVES! Which means, it can't last long! But you can freeze it and reheat. However, it is best eaten fresh!


There's 3 types, the stick which is really tasty and even my kids love it so much that my whole family can finish a pack of 500g in a day.


Another is the coins types and the usual square flat type. Great as a snack, for sandwiches and more!


Besides the "Bak Gua", there's also the "Tau Sah Pheah" that melts in your mouth! Okay, not literally but close! Most commercial baked "Tau Sah Pheah" is usually sweet, dry, too bland or the skin is too thick!


This "Tau Sah Pheah" is just nice, balanced and a great tea time snack!


Another I would love to highlight is the Coconut Doll Biscuits! That is my family favourite! I used to get a set of 20pcs everytime when it's available. But the next round I may have to get 2 sets since my youngest enjoys eating!


When I said multi-skilled, I mean it! She even sells Mangolicious cakes and it is amazing the way it's decorated and made with so much passion! My in-laws loved it when I ordered a cake for my Mother-in-law's birthday!


We had a satisfying dinner before that and usually when it comes to the cake or even desserts, we get really full! But we managed to almost finish the cake because it was so fresh, light, fluffy and tasty! Definitely worth it!


The portion is huge and the fruits are abundance in this cake!!


Follow her on Facebook or you can join one of the Facebook Group I help to admin to request for her specialties and from time to time she will post special delicacies available for a short time frame in the Facebook Groups and in her personal Facebook too.

So don't miss it! Like this cute lil Piggy Doll Biscuit (kosong) very traditional, cute and fun to take photo with.
