Food Review: Poon Confectionery's Chinese New Year Goodies by CNY Delivery

Hi lovelies,

Chinese New Year is just around the corner! It is the time for celebration, house visiting, feasting, indulgence and perhaps, physical rest for some.

In the chinese culture, Chinese New Year is not complete without some tasty traditional goodies, am I right? Having CNY goodies at home is a common practice and childhood memory for many Chinese families in Singapore. 

Lately, I tasted a brand that sells homemade CNY goodies and would like to share about their CNY goodies. 

First up is their Golden Pillow Pineapple Tarts. 

In the chinese culture, pineapple tart is a must have as it represents prosperity and wealth. The golden pillow shape is also a representation of gold bar which makes this an auspicious CNY goody to have. In terms of taste, this pineapple tart is highly raved in my family and everyone loves it. It has a soft buttery crust that melts in the mouth. The filling is made of real pineapple fruit and of appropriate level of sweetness that made us unable to stop at one. This is just too tasty and addictive! Highly recommended!

My rating: 4.5/5

Review: J. Studios Signature Oxygen Deep Cleansing Facial

Dear lovelies,

December is the time of the year when all of us want a refreshing look for the year-end celebrations and to start the new year afresh. I went for my facial at J. Studios to have a go at their signature oxygen deep cleansing facial.

J. Studios is conveniently located in the central, along Haji Lane.

Upon arrival, I was soon led to their upper level where their facial rooms are located.

Food Review: Gu Ma Jia Chinese New Year Dishes

Dear lovelies,

Recently, I had the privilege to dine at Gu Ma Jia and tasted their auspicious Chinese New Year reunion dinner set.

Gu Ma Jia has 4 sets of Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner to suit different budgets and taste buds ranging from $398++ to $799++. For diner who wants to order ala carte dishes, their special Chinese New Year dishes are available for add-ons.

In the chinese culture, we begin the new year with blessings of fortune and prosperity with Yu Sheng. 
We had the Prosperity ‘Yu Sheng’ (Gui Fei Abalone) 鸿运发财鱼生(贵妃鲍) with advance tossing and spoken blessings into 2019. May everyone have a smooth-sailing 2019!

This Yu Sheng had a wide variety of fresh ingredients and every mouth of it tasted delicious and refreshing on the palate. I went for double serving of it, really tasty and unforgettable! I love it! 

The next Chinese New Year dish we had was the Lobster Cold Platter 龙虾拼盘 which consisted of Smoked Duck, Mixed Sauce Pacific Clam, Gu Ma Bean Curd, Salad Lobster.

I highly recommend this dish! Full marks for both presentation and taste, worthy of all the calories. Every dish on this platter contributed to a different taste on the tastebuds yet marvelous in combination. The Gu Ma bean curd is no ordinary fried bean curd with its crispy exterior and special recipe delightful taste in the interior. The pacific clam, salad lobster and smoked duck were equally fresh and palatable. Another of my favourite dish!

Another Chinese New Year dish at Gu Ma Jia is the Lychee Sweet & Sour Grouper 荔枝酸甜石斑鱼.

This is a convenient dish to consume as the bones had been removed and the fish meat comes in cubes. The tangy sweet and sour sauce is a good match with the fresh and tender fish meat.
