[Advert] Summur & Co



Thanks to the people at Summur & Co, I received my first-ever personalized bag with my name and a personal charm. I love how roomy the bag was! It was able to fit my daily essentials, as well as my DSLR and even a thick cardigan. The bag also comes with a mini pouch that allows you to compartmentalize your little items. 

This bag can be carried both ways - as a shoulder bag or a side carrier. I would definitely bring this on my overseas trip this May because the neutral color matches well with most of my outfits! 

Summur & Co also sells tech devices such as Marble printed phone cases and portable chargers, Tofu portable chargers, personalized passport covers and laptop cases.... etc plus a wide range of bags that are customizable.

[Advert] Huang Ah Ma - The Oriental Spa Chamber


Address:
50 Mosque Street

Tel:

Opening hours:
11am - 3am

Website:

Thanks to the people at Huang Ah Ma, I was invited to try out the Oriental Spa Chamber last week. Opened by the people behind Mary Chia, it features the first ever late night spa and facial regime. The different processes make use of treatments which include tons of Chinese herbs and medicine that strives to improve our overall health and wellness. It also aids insomnia and I really slept like a baby that night! 

I loved how cozy and dim-lited the whole place was. It really helped me to tune in with the whole process of relaxing and rejuvenating after a long day in school!








The herbs used in Huang Ah Ma can help to enhance cell recovery and rejuvenation which works best at night. The foot soak that I had consists of herbs used by women of the Yao Yu tribe, who are known to lead lives that are free of any sickness and ailments. The herbs can also help to open pores to reap the full medicinal benefits of the herbs, enhancing blood circulation and improving overall well-being.

The masseuse was really attentive and got me to fill in a form at the start of the session to understand more about my skin and body conditions. I was also served a cup of ginger tea that serves to detox and get rid of the wind in the stomach.


The treatment includes an 8 step relaxing spa and regimen that includes:

1) A "Yao Yu" Foot Soak  (as mentioned above)
2) Back Massage to help relax the body
3) Artemisia Herbs Detox and Ear Candling (This process can help one to relax, detox and even improves digestion!)
4) Facial Cleanse with Huang Ah Ma's very own product
5) Enzyme Facial Peel
6) Musical Ball Face Massage 
7) Custom Blended Mask
8) Hand Meridian Massage

My favorites were the Artemisia Herbs Detox and Ear Candling as well as the Musical Ball Face Massage. For the detox, the herbs were placed on my navel, followed by the candle which left a really comfortable feeling. The Musical Ball Face Massage was so soothing! The musical balls produced a tinkling sound and I even fell asleep during the therapeutic process!

This 90-minute treatment now has an introductory price of $88 (Up to $188). 
Do head on down to try the experience for yourself!

Once again, thank you Huang Ah Ma & Mary Chia for the invite.

[Advert] SUFOOD Singapore

Thanks to the people at Su Food, I got to try out their 8 course Italian-Inspired Vegetarian cuisine. 
I have never been a big fan of Vegetarian food, but the dishes served at Su Food definitely made me a convert. I can't wait to bring my parents there to savor them in the near future!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Background Story:
Founded in 2010, SUFOOD is the first meat-free concept restaurant under WOWPRIME GROUP, the largest F&B operator in Taiwan. Through a joint venture, SUFOOD is launching in Singapore for the very first time at Raffles City in May 2014.
SUFOOD is not only inspired by Italian cuisine but also by how it is prepared; though only using basic cooking techniques, Italian cuisine still exudes diverse and rich flavors. SUFOOD thus relies chiefly on the quality of the fresh ingredients to create innovative and delicious meat-free cuisines.
Their manifesto of using the rule of five:

5-colour groups of vegetables & fruits to give you a variety of nutrients


5 natural spices for an added flavor boost and
5 cooking methods to present you with an utterly gastronomical indulgence!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The set course costs $29.80++, but I can assure you that it is definitely value-for-money, especially with the standard of food served and the pleasure of dining in such an amazing ambiance. I highly doubt you can find any restaurant that serves quality Vegetarian cuisine at such an affordable price. 

PROMOTION:
They're currently having a promotion for DBS/POSB card members!
Enjoy a 1 for 1 8-course meal (worth $29.80++), valid from 2 - 4:30pm daily!
(But I mean, I would also go even without the promo because yes, the food is THAT good. I'm not trying to oversell them here. It's truly based on my personal opinion!)


Su Food is located at Raffles City Shopping Centre, Level 2!

Opening Hours:
Lunch: 1130am - 430pm (last order at 3pm)
Dinner: 530pm - 10.30pm (last order at 9pm)

Tel:



Before ordering, the servers would check with you if you're allergic / can't consume Garlic or onion!
Definitely a thumbs up for their impeccable service!

The menu at Su Food is pretty structured and fitted to your personal palette. It focuses on an 8 course meal with various choices of salads, soup, mains, dessert and drinks.

We were first greeted with a cup of Mulberry Cider Vinegar to cleanse our palette before each main course. The vinegar might be a little strong for some on the first sip, but you'll gradually get accustomed to it after the consecutive sips! 


1) Appetizers



We were advised to dine from right to left so that the end taste would not be too overpowering. 

From right to left: 
Japanese Yam with wolfberry dressing, Taiwanese, Oriental greens with Sesame dressing and a savory Cherry Tomato Jelly. 

2) Rosemary Breadsticks - FAV!


Homemade rosemary infused breadsticks ith a choice of Thousand Island / Mustard Dip. 
Couldn't get enough of the mustard dip!

3) Salads 


Mushroom Salad 
(Button and Shitake mushrooms with steamed broccoli and sliced cherry tomatoes glazed in a vinegar dressing) 
Summer Salad
(A colorful array of sweet potato, carrot, pepper. and seasonal fruits served with Thousand island dressing and sesame sauce) 

4) Soup 


Cabbage and Sweet Potato Stew
(Konjac root stewed with cabbage and sweet potato)
Mushroom and Pea Pottage 
(Button, Shitake and King Oyster mushrooms stewed with blended sweet peas)

5) Mains







Wild Mushroom Charcoal Tagliatelle - MY FAV!
(King Oyster mushrooms sauteed in light olive oil and homemade dressing on a bed of fragrant charcoal tagliatelle) 

For those who might not know what Tagliatelle is, they're long, flat ribbons of pasta. The Tagliatelle at Su Food brought pastas to a whole new level. They were so springy, chewy and light!
I would highly recommend you guys to order this when you are there as it's one of their signature dishes as well!  




Star Pizza - MY FAV!
(A golden star-shaped pizza, filled with oyster mushrooms, cream cheese, mustard and wasabi mayo sauce. Topped with salted seaweed)

The mains were the star dishes of our entire meal (no pun intended). Like seriously, how can you say no to a cream cheese stuffed pizza? The seasoning and toppings worked really well together!

6) Desserts 


Vanilla Ice-cream with Hot Chocolate 
(Coat your vanilla ice-cream in as much warm, dark chocolate fudge sauce as you wish)
Banana Cheesecake
(Banana cheesecake drizzled with blueberry sauce, accompanied with chocolate waffle roll)

7) Drinks 


Left: 
Passion Fruit Calamansi Drink
(Refreshing aromatic calamansi tea with fresh passion fruit)

Right:
The Ashitaba
(Restorative Japanese Ashitaba leaves, blended with aloe vera juice and honey)

Thank you so much for the invite once again! 
This is a restaurant that I'll definitely return to! 

Toodles!
