The Best Freshwater Eels @ Makoto Japanese Cuisine Desa Sri Hartamas

My family and I love Unagi, which is the Japanese eels that normally served with rice. However, we have not tried freshwater eels until recently at Makoto Japanese Cuisine Desa Sri Hartamas.
Located at the busy district at Desa Sri Hartamas, Makoto Japanese Cuisine is a lovely Japanese restaurant that has cosy interior and 2 VIP rooms. 
What is interesting is that Makoto imported fresh eels that are from Shizuoka, Japan weekly and serve upon order. Their experienced Japanese Unagi Chef will keep the fresh eels in cold temperature to keep it calm, it will be freshly prepared and cooked upon order. Hence, it takes around 25 minutes for them to prepare and serve the eel dishes. Best to call for reservations before going to eliminate the waiting time.
If you want to see how the Japanese Unagi Chef to prepare the live eel at the kitchen, please click on the video below.

I like everything beauty, hence when IOI City Mall invited me to their beauty day out last month, I did not hesitate to RSVP myself to explore the beauty tenants there.

It is equipped with a Open Spa, a makeover area, a relaxing lounge, a travel zone, a maternity zone, a gift area, a sample wall, and a recycle zone. 
My favourite zone was the Open Spa that offers a 30 minutes quick relaxing pampering while we are on the go.

Watsons Ushers in The Chinese New Year with a #HAPPYBEAUTIFULYEAR Movie Treat for Its ELITE Members

Watsons ELITE members, celebrities and members of the media and blogger community were treated to a special preview screening on 9 Feb 2018, one week ahead of the release date of the latest movie “Think Big Big”, produced by Astro Shaw and directed by Chiu Keng Guan of “The Journey” and “Olabola” fame. Director Chiu Keng Guan and the casts of “Think Big Big” were present to support the special preview screening in-line with Watsons collaboration with the movie as the health and beauty retail brand celebrates the #HappyBeautifulYear Chinese New Year campaign
Cast members Serene Lim, Fabian Loo, Vivienne Oon, Yoong Swen Moon, Ruby Yap, Joanne Lau, Kam Hoe Kei, Billie Chong, Chew Swee Lee and director Chiu Keng Guan also participated in a chit chat session before the movie premiered, sharing their experiences about making the movie and the storyline that is so relevant in today’s society of self-validation especially among the millennials.

Think Big Big” is about a confident plus-sized girl called Moon who dreams of becoming an astronaut. Brought up in a small town by her loving parents, she has always received unconditional love and support from them. Moon is contented with her job as a mascot talent.

However financial debts forced her to participate in a competition which requires her to share her fitness journey on social media. As she became an internet sensation, Moon’s life has turned upside down. She starts to lose the support of her loved ones. And the audience will have to watch what happens as she goes through a journey to regain her true happiness and winning back the people that she loves.
“The main message of the movie resonates with Watsons Malaysia’s advocacy of embracing our inner beauty and remembering our self-worth and confidence in a society today which promotes self-validation through social media. It is such an important time to remind people especially young impressionable females that they should love and accept themselves for who they are and are beautiful in their own special way. At Watsons Malaysia, we are very excited to reward our customers with lots of “prosperous” goodies and “money-can’t-buy” experiences as we usher in the Chinese New Year. Tonight we have our Watsons Elite members who have been supporting us in a big way in 2017 and we are rewarding them with an example of a “money-can’t-buy” experience where they will be one of the first to preview “Think Big Big” before the general release on 15 February 2018. Not leaving out our ELITE members outside the Klang Valley, this special preview screening also extends to the ELITE members in Kuching, Penang, Johor Bahru and Ipoh where there is a similar special preview screening running concurrently. We always try to go beyond in rewarding our loyal customers”, said Caryn Loh 罗宝霞, General Manager and Country Head of Watsons Malaysia.
According to Chiu Keng Guan, director of “Think Big Big”, Watsons Malaysia was an ideal partner for the movie, as Watsons advocates physical as well as inner beauty among its customers. Being more than a retail brand, Watsons engages with its customers through workshops, beauty forums, health and lifestyle events to encourage its customers to look at
beauty on a holistic level, which resonates with the main theme of “Think Big Big”.

Invest a New Mattress Every 10 Years for Better Health

How old is your mattress? Mine is just 2 years as I have changed my old mattress then. Many people might not know how long they have had their current mattress, some ever thought mattress is used for life. In fact, many experts have identified and concluded that we should change a new mattress every 10 years for better health.
Mattress is so close to us, and it is affecting our sleep and life so closely. A good mattress give us the optimal support for the whole night. However, mattress does age just like our skin. The mattress might lost its support over time. Besides taking good care of the mattress, for instance to put on mattress protector, it is also essential for us to invest a new mattress every 10 years.
Many people judge a mattress by its look. Actually, an old mattress that still looks good does not mean it does not need to be replaced. Imagine the old mattresses that have accumulate years and years of dead skin cells, sweat, and bacteria; it is a breeding ground for millions of creepy critters that are living there right now. Many skin issue, irritation or bad sleep are actually caused by the old mattresses.

An old mattress might also reduce the sleep quality. If you wake up with sore body, most probably you might need to change your mattress immediately for the good night sleep and rest.
Some people may thought a firm mattress is the best mattress but it might not. In fact, you should choose your mattress by trying it personally before buying. A firm mattress which seems comfortable to me might not bring be the same benefits to you. Hence I would always advice people to go and try out the mattresses before making any decision to invest in new mattress.

Sporting Fun with The Carrie Junior ‘Sukan Ria’ Collection

We have reached an age where technology is slowly overtaking human interaction and kids are drawn to it as well.

Sports practices and games will provide the opportunity for exercise that can help kids to stay healthy and aid in their physical development.

Productivity Nexus for Retail and F&B Launches Three Flagship Programmes Targeting 7.2% Growth in Labour Productivity

The Productivity Nexus has once again proven its keen initiative of increasing human capital productivity by implementing Productivity Nexus for the Retail and Food & Beverage (F&B) industry. During the official launch of the Flagship Programmes held at Sunway Putra Hotel, KL on 8th Feb 18, invited media was given the first-hand information about this flagship programmes.
Targets a 7.2% growth in labour productivity in the industry to meet the 2020 National level productivity target of RM 92,300 per worker. Through this, the platform, driven by the private sector and supported by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tn Razak, aims to empower industry associations to become key change agents in the nation. This is because the collective power of industry associations offer a strong bridge to connect with enterprises and knowledge experts in each sector. The event was officiated by Minister of Human Resources YB Dato’ Sri (Dr) Richard Riot Anak Jaem.
At the moment, the Retail and F&B sector employs no less than 2.7 million people which marks a value-added of RM 89 billion – recording an 8.3% contribution to the nation’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP). However, the productivity in this sector remains as one of the lowest. This spurred the implementation of the Productivity Nexus which rides on the premise of sharing the economy’s best practices and being inspired by industry experts to further inspire the rest of the industry. The initiative is slated to involve 80 to 100 selected flagship companies.
There is no denying that digitalisation is the way of the future. Recognising this factor, the Retail and F&B Productivity Nexus Champion Dato’ Bruce Lim reiterated,”The Productivity initiatives for Retail and F&B have included support for digitalisation of business operation and honing e-commerce capabilities.”
