My Mango Smoothie.

 They have soups that you don't see at other shabu restaurants like Kalbijim soupEbi Chilli soup and creamy mushroom soup
Kalbijim is kimchi base and a bit spicy;
Ebi Chilli is sweet and a little spicy, not very spicy, just good!
If you like your soup light like me, you can have vegetable soup. 
A bit ang moh feel, you can have mushroom soup.

The Cellglo Deep Cleansing Bar is 100% safe and handmade from natural ingredients, each being hand selected to nourish, replenish and rejuvenate your precious skin, without ever causing any negative reactions. 

This cleansing bar is brilliant for people who have eczema or sensitive skin. It doesn't irritate your skin

What make Deep Cleansing Bar so different from others?

7. Animals contain free.

I'm currently using it to cleanse face and for my body as my back has a bit scar. The skin feels smooth after washing and scar does lighten a bit already! The size of the bar is quite big so it can last for a long time. Some natural handmade bar which is scent free smells awful, but this doesn't. The bubbles are fine which it easily unclog pores. 

This combination can give better effect. But it's alright to only use either one, it still works too. Just using both give better effect. 

Sometimes they appear in health paper too! The products are all satisfaction guarantee. 

Do no hesitate to send inquiries if you have any.  Contact me if you would like to know more or to have a try on this product.

Paddington House of Pancakes

Hello darlings!

It's been a while since I posted food photos. It's great to see there are new cafes and restaurants in Brunei, and also drive through Starbucks too! 

Anyway, I went to Paddington that day. It was my second time there. They have variety choices of foods, they come in large portion and always delicious!

 Love their large sized fries. Hard to find in Brunei I guess.

 OH! This is best! I forgot what's the name of this dish, may be you can show them this picture if you wanna order.
It's filled with prawns, mushrooms, cheese etc. It's my liking because I love mushroom and seafood. Very filling 

The bacon crepe. Aiya, I forgot the real name of the dish, paiseh. Not bad too but I prefer the dish on top.

It's a nice and cozy place to dine in. Can have a try :)

FAQs: Braces and Invisalign

Hello darlings! I feel like a Ms. Braces because there are a lot inquiries ever since I posted this last year. So I'll write a clearer review about my experience on getting a braces. I had my braces removed in 2009, which is quite a long time ago, I will try to recall everything.

Google image

Let's begin with braces.

1. Where do you do your braces?
Miri. Dr. Aziz +6085 427 263.
Location: Lot 442, 1st Floor, Jalan Bendahara. Near Mega hotel, near traffic light, green building. 

2. The process.
First, call and make appointment with them instead of going there straight because the doctor's schedule could be full, in the end, you still need to make an appointment. 

2nd, tell them you wanna do braces. They will schedule you for x-ray and have your tooth pull out (if necessary). Then they will start installing the braces for you which are all on the SAME day

3rd, you need to go to Dr Aziz every month to adjust your teeth regularly till your braces are fit to remove. 

Lastly, you need to go there for regular check up every month, and then every 3 month, and every 6 month to make sure your teeth is well maintained (This check-up is free, I guess for life? Because I don't go back anymore for the check-up)

3. Is it pain?
No at all. The doctor is good. I didn't feel any pain having my teeth pull out when I'm a person who cry when I have injection. The braces is not painful either.

But you will feel a bit tight for 2-3 days. You only can eat soft foods like porridge for that few days. 

4. For how long do I need to wear the braces?
I had mine 1.5 to 2 years. Longer if yours are serious. But average 2 years.

5. How much does it cost?
For lower and upper teeth, braces costs around RM3k-4k. 

6. How to pay?
You can pay by installment. Firstly, you need to pay certain amount which I forgot how much, could be few hundreds or a thousand. After that by installment which is around RM100-300 every month. 

7. How much does it cost in Brunei government hospital?
It's free and you need to Q.

8. How much does it cost in Brunei private clinics?
Brunei private clinics are not allowed to do braces. You only can do it either at Government hospital or JPMC.

9. How much does it cost at JPMC?
Around BND3k. 

After my braces are removed, I was given a metal retainer and invisalign to maintain the shape. You can use either one. Retainer is adjustable while invisalign has a fix shape

10. Do I need to wear retainer/invisalign everyday?
Yes, I guess you need to wear it for life. The teeth somehow would go a bit out of shape if you don't wear it. When I wear it after two days of not wearing it, I feel my teeth is a bit tight.

From what I read in articles, invisalign can adjust your teeth. However, Dr. Aziz and my dentist at JPMC told me otherwise. Invisalign can't adjust your teeth, but a metal retainer can. I'm not sure is it because they don't have this technology yet or we have misunderstood from the adverts but this is what two dentists told me.

So, regarding Invisalign:

11. What's invisalign for?
To maintain your teeth shape.

12. Can my teeth be adjusted just by wearing invisalign?

13. How much does it cost in Miri?
RM400 each. A total of RM800 if you do upper and lower teeth. 
If you do braces, the cost of invisalign and retainer will be included in the package of RM3k-4k. 

14. How much does it cost in JPMC?
around BND 150-250 each. 


15. Should I do braces?
When you start to think about this, then I guess you should. You will look better with tidy teeth :)

16. I'm not young like a teenager anymore, should I still do?
Just do it la.

17. Will I look ugly?
No, you won't. You will look even great after the braces are removed. You will smile confidently :)

Hope this helps. xoxo
