Veet It Off and Unleash Your Confidence!

Last Friday, I was at Hotel Maya for a pampering session by Veet, courtesy of Nuffnang =)

I'm sure you girls (and guys?) know Veet right? Veet is the world’s No.1 depilatory cream! Their wide range of products gives women flawless, smooth, and moisturized skin minus the hassle and pain.

Before the pampering session, Veet has invited Miss Malaysia Thanuja Ananthan, 8TV Quickie host Megan Tan and actress Diana Danielle to share with us their 'furry moments' and how Veet helped them get rid of unwanted hairs. I honestly agree with them that Veet is very convenient especially for busy girls like us. We just don't have the time to even go to a waxing salon, not to mention that you need to call up to make appointment and sometimes the slot you want is unavailable! That horror!

Veet Hair Removal Cream works effectively on hair as short as 1.5 mm to keep skin irresistibly smooth and moisturised while Veet Wax Strips gently and effectively remove hair from the root for longer-lasting smoothness up to 4 weeks. Which one do you prefer? ;)

As I've just shaved my legs few days ago, the hair is too short to test the product. So I tried this Suprem' Essence Wax Strips on my arms instead. Normally I'm kinda afraid of pulling the wax strips myself for the fear of pain. This time, I have someone to help me pull it :p

Very convenient! They not only have the steps on the box but also on the wax strip itself.

Gangnam Fries and Samurai Burger @ McDonald's

If you're on Facebook, I'm sure you guys saw this viral Gangnam Fries that is rumored to be available in Malaysia! On first thought, I was thinking surely someone Photoshopped it in but some friends said it was real.

Since I'm in Penang right now, I went to the McDonald's at Gurney Plaza to see whether it's true or not, besides trying the new Samurai Burger. The result? DON'T HAVE! So disappointed =( The only McShaker Fries available is this Katsu Curry McShaker. The taste is very addictive though... not too spicy and I even fought with le boyfie to get more of it hahaha so drama...

I want Gangnam Fries T^T

The Samurai Beef Burger has juicy quarter pound beef patty in sweet teriyaki sauce and fresh lettuce. Overall it's good but a little bit messy though. Price including tax for a large Samurai Beef Burger set with Sakura McFizz and Katsu Curry McShaker Fries is RM 13.20.

After the meal, went for a walk at Gurney Drive but half way through, it rained so heavily we had to run back to Gurney Plaza!! It has been raining for 2 days in a row! Oh God...

Food Review: Okomen Japanese Restaurant @ Desa Sri Hartamas

Okomen Japanese Restaurant is located at Desa Sri Hartamas area, but it wasn't easy to find because the roads there are quite confusing. I finally reached there after a few U-turns! Normally when people mention Japanese restaurant, what goes on my mind would be sushi, ramen and sashimi but I'm quite surprised to know that Okomen actually specializes in Okonomiyaki! I noticed that the restaurant is almost full house during dinner time and 80% of the customers are Japanese, so I'm sure that their food here are really authentic to attract such crowd. I'll definitely be back for their Okonomiyaki =)

For those who doesn't know what is Okonomiyaki, here's a description from Wikipedia: Okonomiyaki is a Japanese savoury pancake containing a variety of ingredients. The name is derived from the word okonomi, meaning "what you like" or "what you want", and yaki meaning "grilled" or "cooked".

The Tori Oko was great, topped with Katsuobushi to enhance the taste of delectable egg mixed with pork and mayonnaise. Japanese pizza at its best! I've just tried Okonomiyaki from Jusco a week before this but really cannot compare. This tastes a lot better! No wonder it's the signature dish here.

Omu Tori Yaki Soba (RM 13.80)
Omu Tori Yaki Soba (RM 13.80)
Omu Tori Yaki Soba is something special to try. It looks like Nasi Pattaya but it's fried Soba and seafood wrapped with egg! It smells very fragrant too and all the dishes here were prepared by the owner, Mr. Alan himself.

Mixed Modan-yaki (RM 28.80)
Mixed Modan-yaki (RM 28.80)
The word Modan is derived from the English word, "modern". When fried noodles are wrapped in egg with the same ingredients as Tori Oko, it results in Modan-yaki: a simple twist to the original flavor.

Gyoza (RM 10.80)

Gyoza, a popular Chinese food brought to Japan is definitely not to be missed. Mouth watering ground pork fillings were wrapped into thin piece of dough, creating a very fulfilling taste.
