Review: Yves Rocher Rinsing Vinegar

Thanks to Try & Review, I had the chance to use the Yves Rocher Rinsing Vinegar, It is silicone and paraben-free thus I could it not to harm my hair and scalp.



The product is in a plastic packaging with a screw-in cap. I do find it difficult to control the amount of product pouring out, I ended out wasting a bit of the product and cleaning up the mess on the exterior of the bottle.

Talking about the scent, it really reminds me of Ribena just that this is much stronger.

Let me show you how my hair looks like before using it.



There isn't shine at all and looks a little drizzy and dry.

After rinsing the shampoo off my hair, I pour out about a 50-cent coin volume of the Yves Rocher Rinsing Vinegar and started lathering on my hair. I try to avoid my scalp and I use other scalp products.

After leaving it on for 1-2 mins, I rinsed off with water and felt the difference immediately. My hair was so much smoother and lighter. I was impressed.

After I have towel-dry my hair, I could still smell the rinsing vinegar on my hair. The scent was really strong.

Here's how my hair look like after drying.



I could vividly see the shine on my hair and realised how much more manageable it has become. I would definitely use this before attending a special occasion.


A bottle of 150ml retails $18 which is affordable and since the advised usage is twice a week, a bottle of this can last for months. You can get it in all Yves Rocher outlets.

Hai Nan Hometown Curry

Allow me to introduce one of my favourite stalls for curry chicken, Hai Nan Hometown Curry.

It was previously located at 505 Jurong West St. 52 and have shifted to Ghim Moh Market & Food Centre. I didn't know they shifted until this week. The stall is operated by a couple and they sell value-for-money curry dishes.


Other than curry chicken, I have also tried their curry pork ribs, curry vegetables and curry fishhead (replaced by asam stingray) but I still prefer their curry chicken.

Each bowl of $4.50 consists of 1 wing, 1 drumstick, 2 potatoes and a generous bowl of curry for you to dip your bread or eat with white rice. The amount of curry is definitely enough for you to coat every rice grain.


My first mouth of it was so shiok. The curry is creamy and not as oily as the one at Queensway Shopping Centre. I like that the chicken is tender and cooked just right. If you can't take very spicy food, this curry is still right for you.

Will I go back? Of course I will and wouldn't be long till I patronize again. Do note that the stall is closed on Monday.

Kang Kang Laksa Express Meal Kit

Kang Kang Laksa

I chanced upon the brand Kang Kang from a follower's instagram in which she snapped pictures of the food she prepared using Kang Kang express meal kits.

I am about savings time and effort when comes to cooking  thus I decided to try their Laksa Express Meal Kit. It includes 1 serving of laksa noodle, 1 pack of coconut powder and 1 pack of laksa paste.

Here are the ingredients I used for 4 servings.


3 packs of Kang Kang Laksa Noodle
100g of beansprouts
4 eggs
10 pcs of Tau Pok (each sliced into 2)
180g Fish Cake (sliced)

Instructions

1) Boil 4 eggs till fully cooked. Leave them in ambient temperature water for at most 5 mins to cool down before peeling the egg shells.

2) Boil a pot of water to cook the Kang Kang Laksa Noodle. Alternatively, you can just soak them in hot water to warm it up.

3) Rest the Kang Kang Laksa Noodle in a bowl while cooking the other ingredients.

4) Boil 1000ml of water in a cooking pot, add the laksa paste and coconut powder. Stir to mix well.

5) Add the fish cake, tau pok and beansprouts to cook for 3 minutes and you are ready to serve.

Here's how my bowl of laksa looks like.


The flavour was not bad but not spicy enough.for me. The tau pok was soaked with the goodness of the laksa.

I would rate the Kang Kang Laksa Express Meal Kit 9 out of 10.
