[Singapore] Treasures Yi Dian Xin at Raffles City

When I met one of my close friends from graduate school, we decided to check out her favorite restaurants - Treasures Yi Dian Xin at Raffles City.

We ordered a mix of her favorite foods that she was craving and some of the things I thought sounded nice (and cute).

I am a noodles person (not a rice person) and I was definitely in the mood for some noodles. Honestly I don't know what everything is called because she ordered for us in Chinese.

But, the menu was super duper extensive and the prices were medium-high (definitely cheaper than you'd pay in NYC).

For this particular dish - the meat was so tender and the flavor was nice and savory. But, I just wish I would have realized how oily it was going to be.
We also got the duck, which was super delicious. The duck was so tender, but yet the skin was so crispy on the outside. I think this style duck (or maybe type of duck) is different from the ones I was used to eating in Korea. I would definitely recommend checking it out and adding it to your order if you wanted to have a kind of a "fancy" main dish.

I wanted to add these cuties to the order. I had no idea what it was going to be and my friend didn't either because neither the English nor the Chinese description were very descriptive.

I felt so bad eating the cutie, especially the guy with the nose on the right.

They were delicious though. The texture was so fluffy!

Overall, I can see this being a family gathering type of restaurant. Maybe for a celebration or something. I don't know if I would seek out this restaurant again when I go to Singapore next, but if my friend would be craving it, I would definitely humor her because I know I'd get good quality food and beyond great company.

[Skincare Review] Head-to-Head Test: Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. La Mer The Concentrate

 As promised, here is my blog comparing the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. the La Mer The Concentrate. FTC disclaimer: I was sent both of these items for free in exchange for my full and honest review. I tried to be as scientific as humanly possible. I had a blinded reviewer (my mom) who was actually unaware I was even doing a skincare test, so her opinion is completely blinded and she tried really hard to give a full and honest review of differences she noticed. I did this for 2 weeks. In the 14 days before the test, I was testing out the Estee Lauder ANP product in exchange for my review. I had enough product left (and actually received a second sample to test). My nighttime skincare routine was the same as usual. 1) DHC Cleansing Oil - Buy from YesStyle | Buy from Amazon 2) Micellar Water (for eye makeup) 3) Rosette Cleansing Paste Sea Clay Smooth - Buy From YesStyle  | Buy from Amazon I used my PMD Clean (from CAUSEBOX) to wash my face.
