Side-talk: So Pho review at NEX

I decide that I should occasionally do food review on this blog too after my first food-related post on Swensens' mooncake here. Hope you readers like it :). Yesterday, my sister and I decided to have an impromptu dinner after a long day at school. It has been quite some time since we pamper ourselves with good food since year 4 in university has been quite hectic. So we decide to NEX at Serangoon since it is on the way and it has quite a few halal eateries there.

I arrives at NEX first since NTU is further away than NUS. I had to wait for 30 minutes or so. We settled for So Pho, since my sister is craving for something soupy. There wasn't a queue but we had to wait quite sometime to get a seat. However that place was pretty packed.

We had Pho Bo (Vietnamese Slice Beef Noodle Soup) and Lychee Mint Freeze for drinks. I think Pho Bo is their specialty. I didn't take long for food to come, but it took quite long to the waiters to take our orders. I guess they are short of staff.

I would say that the Beef noodle is pretty good. The noodles are nice and chewy, I really like the texture. The soup is nice too, with a just enough hint of spiciness. The portion is pretty generous. The bowl is big, I thought it would just be because of the soup. But there is generous portion of noodles and beef.

Lychee Mint Freeze was a nice surprise. I taste quite unique I would say. But since it is ice-blended, it doesn't really quench out thirst.

We pack home seafood fried rice and the prawn and lemongrass chicken summer rolls for our parents. My mum really liked the summer rolls. Sorry no photos for that.

Pho Bo - $8.80

Lychee Mint Freeze - $4.50
Do give So Pho a try if you haven't!

Review: Skinfood Egg White Pore Mask + Brief update about my life

Hello readers! As promised I will be reviewing Skinfood Egg White Pore Mask.


One of pet peeves is having visible white heads or black heads on my skin. I am prone to having white heads on my skin. When I stayed up late consecutively, I will start seeing white heads sprouting on below my lower lip, chin area and sides of my lips. I also get paranoid when that happens, because I fear if people can see it when stand close to me. There are lots of products for black heads but not much product are available for specially white heads. I find Skinfood Egg White Pore Mask relatively effective for my white heads treatment.

Side-talk: Swensen's Ice Cream Mooncake (Moon Struck) 2014

Walking around in malls during Mooncake Festivity always makes me salivates, from all the mooncake fairs happening at the atrium. We decide to join the festivity by buying moon cakes this year for our family to share even though we don't celebrate Mooncake festival because we are not ethnic chinese. But it is not just any mooncake, it is ice-cream mooncake (a less traditional kind).

The moon cakes are packed in a box and filled with dry ice in order to prevent it from melting during your journey home. It also came with a free cooler bag. Just a tip when you are cutting the moon cakes, do let it thaw for about 5 minutes before you cut, or you will have difficulty cutting like I did. My knife got stuck in the moon cake.

Review: Laneige Trouble Spot Gel Cream

Before I review on skinfood face mask, I will first do a review on Laneige Trouble Spot Gel Cream which I bought together with Laneige Balancing Emulsion. You can find the review for the latter here. I was using the trouble spot gel cream one night and realized that I am about to finish. The a thought hit me 'I better do a review on it soon since it such a good product'. So here I am.

I bought this on impulse when I was in Korea in January since it was cheaper than in local. I did not do any research whatsoever. It surprisingly pretty good.
