Axtivo Cafe & Restaurant, near Airport Roundabout

Visited this new restaurant with family on last Sunday for lunch.
I've heard about this restaurant quite awhile ago from Hubby and SKY but never been there.
Surprisingly, it was my dad's idea to visit this new restaurant this time. FYI, my dad is the kind of uncle who dislikes trying new stuffs. Well, he does but not always haha
Alright, back to the restaurant..
This restaurant is located within the same building as Ericsson Company. If you travel along the near to Brunei Tennis Club, you should be able to spot a brown building with Ericsson signage.
There are actually two ways to enter; either enter through Brunei Tennis Club or an entrance near to Airport roundabout.
Ah, another landmark is Jaya Setia Square where the X-Ray Centre is located. Jaya Setia Square is a building next to the building where Axtivo is located.
Before we entered the restaurant, we expected the restaurant to be deserted but we were wrong. There were already 3 tables occupied. And not long after we were seated, there were more and more people entering the restaurant and some are big families.
The interior of the restaurant is not bad. Quite spacious actually.
Flipping through their menu, it seemed like Axtivo does serve some Singaporean food so if you're craving for Singaporean food, you can visit this restaurant to cure your craveness.

Thiam Hock's interestng menu

First of all, Happy Father's Day!!!
And every time if there's occasion like this, many people would flood Thiam Hock Restaurant for celebration. So I thought I should post something interesting about Thiam Hock's menu ^^



Photobucket
Do you like to eat minced park and safted egg yolk?

Photobucket
Or you prefer Sae food?


After fooling around with 'spot the spelling mistakes' game, we made our order. Mom had Curry Sliced Fish with Rice, bro went for Guinness King Spareribs with Rice and I ordered Belacan Fried Kueh Teow.

Oh, and if you think the interesting part of their menu is just the spelling errors then you're wrong!
The highlight of the menu should be the shot below.

Photobucket
Just pay $300 (or maybe even more) to get this interesting menu and food ingredients would be provided too!


Have a nice weekend everyone!!!!!

Useful make up & hair tutorials

I actually realised some of my friends are really interested in learning how to apply make up especially eyeliner. But they don't know where to start from!
And often I would get questions on which type of eyeliner is better and etc.
I have pencil eyeliner (brown, Avon), liquid eyeliner (brown, Etude House) and gel eyeliner (purple, Faceshop).
Before I got myself gel eyeliner, I always used pencil eyeliner and often found it tend to smudge few hours after applying it. So, I got myself liquid eyeliner but I didn't really like it and I turned back to my pencil eyeliner again.
Just about a week ago, I visited Faceshop and was informed by one of their friendly staffs that they are having half price promotion on gel eyeliner for members.
I was thrilled. The promotion sounded really attractive to me as it went down from $17.90 to $9.80.
I bought it and I'm loving it ♥
Other than the types of eyeliner I'm using, I was often asked how do I apply eyeliner. There are actually few ways of applying eyeliner and in my opinion, I think it all depends on which way you feel convenience in drawing it.
I've always encourage my girlfriends to search and watch more make up tutorials on youtube but I don't think they actually do that.
Therefore, I'm posting up tutorials which I found on youtube and think it's really useful.

Tutorial on eyeliner





Other than tutorial on eyeliner, I've also posted up tutorials on curling hair.
In the recent wedding party I attended, I had my hair curled myself with the cheap Philips curler that Hubby got me 3-4 years back. I received well feedbacks from people but I'm not good in making/editing video and is very 'camera-shy' so I don't find it a good idea to do a tutorial on how I curl my hair.
Once again, I searched on youtube and found a tutorial which is close to the way how I always curl my hair so I'm sharing it! It's actually made by the same girl in previous video.
I also found another video of her showing people how to curl hair using paper bag!
Unbelievable right? I've yet to try it out but it does sound better to hair as there's no heat involved in the process which is healthier to hair (especially to people who curl their hair using iron curler frequently).
