Ramen Keisuke Tonkotsu King @ Orchid Hotel

TGIF Dinner at a very Japanese feel and cozy ramen shop at Orchid Hotel, 1 Tras Link, Tanjong Pagar.

I have been wanting to try the ramen at Tonkotsu King as every time I walked pass it, there's a long long queue. Finally today, we decided to just queue no matter how long it takes.

There is free cold barley tea outside the shop for patrons who are queuing, quite a nice gesture! While queuing, you can decide what to order. Take the order form and a pen from the table outside the shop and tick according to your preference. Oh! Take one order form for each bowl of ramen. They will cook according to your preference.

There are mainly 3 types of ramen, the normal one, black spicy and red spicy. We both ordered the normal and add $4 for Special All Toppings (consists of a big piece of seaweed, a flavoured egg and a thinner piece of chashu). If having all the toppings is not what you want, you can just tick seaweed for $1 or flavoured egg for $2. There's also choices of light, normal, strong for the soup. No oil, less oil, normal or more oil. Hard, normal or soft for the noodles. You can also choose not to have spring onions, black fungus or chashu if don't like these ingredients. We love such customisation!

So finally, it's our turn! it's a bit squeezy in there but that's fine, you will concentrate just on the freebies and ramen anyway.

What freebies do they have? Free water, free barley tea outside the shop which can be brought into the ramen shop, free hard-boiled eggs, chilly sesame bean sprouts, japanese mayonnaise and there's a little bowl of sesame which was really fragrance after we ground it.


Here comes the main lead. Ramen!


The broth was heavenly! One of the best I have eaten in Singapore and it's comparable to the ramen standards we had when we were in Hokkaido! The chashu is nice too! It's different from the chashu we've seen in other ramen shops in Singapore. The flavoured egg was OMG nice! It was totally worth the half an hour queue!

We will be back!

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…
