Restaurant week: Zafferano

During the restaurant week (25 Oct - 2 Nov), we made a booking to have our lunch at Zafferano, which was located on level 43 of Ocean Financial Centre.

Very professional service staff and the food was delicious. But as expected, one bottle of mineral water cost $10++. Okay, a bit xian that we paid this price for water. Wonder if they serve free tap water?

The bread served was delicious and they refilled it for us when we finished the first serving. 
Bread is free! 

Carpaccio of Wagyu beef, portobello mushroom salad, parmesan cheese, mustard dressing.
The salad goes well with the cheese and beef. Delicious. 

Leek and potato veloute, rosemary bread croutons
It's a soup. That's about it. We didn't really like the taste of leek. 

Home made tagliatelle with jumbo prawns, marinated tomatoes with mint, lemon essence.
Prawns is huge and fresh. There's also bit size prawn meat in the pasta. The sauce is just tomato based sauce with prawn flavour, the mint and lemon taste was negligible. Overall, it was a delicious dish.

Slow cooked Iberico pork belly, cameralised red apple with thyme, berry sauce.
The meat was tender and the skin was crispy, eat it with the cameralised apple and the berry sauce will help to reduce the greasiness. However, we still felt it was too greasy if one person finished the whole plate.

Creme brulee, seasonal berries
The creme brulee was delicious but the strawberries was quite sour. Nice finale to the meal. 

After the dessert, the waitress asked if we would like to have tea or coffee, without mentioning that it was not included in the set menu. The way she asked gave us the idea that the tea/coffee was included in the set meal. Sadly, it was not, and we paid an additional $14++ for a cup of tea and a cup of coffee. We are totally upset about paying additional $24++ for drinks (mineral water + a cup of tea + a cup of coffee)! I would like to suggest that the waiter/waitress should at least inform that the tea or coffee was not part of the set meal as we would not have ordered if we knew about it.

The good thing about dining at Zafferano is taking a walk outside for a view of Singapore cityscape from level 43.

My Favourite Salon: Govin Hair @ KSL City Mall

Do you have the same problem as me? Want to dye, perm, rebond or do treatment for your hair but after looking at the price of the established hair salon in Singapore you just wanna shake head and walk away from the salon.

Lucky for me, I found a good, cheaper hair salon with excellent service and experience just across the Straits! At KSL City Mall at JB!


I had gone thrice and I was very happy with my every experience there!

My first and third time there was for hair and scalp treatment and they were really good! The scalp massage was so comfortable, I literally could fell asleep while they worked on my hair! The most special experience was during the wait at the hair wash area. They provided aroma therapy there by dripping some lavender essential oil into the hot water and I nearly slept.

My second time there was to colour and cut my hair. Oh my! Their hair colour has no ammonia smell at all and I love it! Previously, whenever I colour my hair at other hair salons, the colouring has …

Mucota Omega Rebonding at Focus Hairdressing

I initially wanted to try out volume rebonding at some Korean hair salon in Singapore but the price was really expensive, around $350 for my hair length and I was told that the effect was just like soft rebonding, except that it gives the hair more volume. For my hair length, the hairstylist usually will recommend me to perm the ends to have the romantic Korean feel. But I know I will be lazy to maintain the curls. So I dropped the idea. 

I saw many good reviews online for mucota rebonding at Focus Hairdressing. It's located at Cuppage Plaza Level 1 which is just 5 mins walk from Somerset MRT. I have previously tried mucota hair treatment at Creme Hairdressing (Chinatown Point outlet) and I really love the treatment effect. You can read about my mucota treatment experience at Creme Hairdressing. So i decided to try out Mucota rebonding.

I originally planned to take the mucota dyna hair rebonding since it is the cheapest kind of mucota rebonding that Focus offers, it's only $200 …

Mucota Dyna Argan Oil Hair Treatment at Creme Hairdressing

It has been a long time since I last did treatment and color to my hair. It's to a stage where I already cannot stand the frizziness, dryness, ugly color of my unkempt hair.



I was thinking of rebonding my hair to straighten my anyhow curl fringe and to solve the frizzy hair problem, but I was afraid that my hair will be too flat and look unnatural. I researched online and came across Mucota Dyna Hair Treatment. After some research, i realised the price of this hair treatment charged by some salon for my hair length could go up to $200+ to $300, and I definitely do not feel like spending this amount of money just for the hair treatment.

While surfing on Groupon one day, i saw this.


$108 for Mucota Dyna Hair Treatment for any hair length. I bought it immediately and arranged for an appointment. Over the phone, the hairdresser told me that the time required for this treatment is around 3 hours.

The lady who attended to me was Celine, she was from Taiwan. She was quite nice and gentle…
