Takeaway special: Wee House Bento!

UPDATE: They have officially closed their shop in Penang on the 16th of March 2013. they've moved to Butterworth.

Greetings~


The takeaway special topic of the day is Wee House Bento!

I'm pretty sure most of you have not heard of this considering I googled the name and found only one single post regarding this. I'm guessing you probably stumbled here by googling "Wee House Penang" or maybe even "Wee House cafe Penang"? Either way, feel free to read and comment!

Basically, this store started as an online business and has recently expanded and became a physical stall. So, you can actually dine in!

More info? Check out their facebook page or you can also view it at the end of this post!

Here's the bento menu:





I, ok actually my mom, ordered these:


We ordered takeaway so we were asked to wait for half an hour. It wasn't long since we had errands to run so our original plan was to order, run errands then collect.


Here's pics of the bento:

Rilakkuma Bento

Hello Kitty Bento

Winnie The Pooh Bento

Oh and it comes with soup but I forgot to take a pic of that.

Taste:

Surprisingly, it taste good! i mean, my dad told me that good looking food usually taste bad. Like you know those hello kitty cafes? Yea, their food and drink looks really nice and creative and all but the taste it the worst! So, yea.....I actually really like the taste! Especially when you eat it with the sweet special sauce which is listed as A.

Presentation:


God! They look so cute!!!! Did you also know that they customise other cartoons and characters? Go check out their facebook album! They have all like really really cute looking bentos!

Online shopping: Hishop.my

Greetings!

The topic of this post is:

HiShop.my



This is how the page looks like:





Their about me section:

HiShop is managed by the same folks who brought you White.my and MilkADeal.com. 


Samples:


They actually have this thing where you can get 3 samples with any purchase and their samples are not the lame ones. You can choose the samples you want!

Shipping fee:


For free delivery, you will have to spend above RM50. If not, I think they charge RM10 which is quite expensive. Basically conditions like this is the main reason why I hate online shopping. But hey, they gotta earn right? So, to make life easier and I guess to save, just spend more than RM50. 


Delivery speed:

They use PosLaju which would actually arrive one day later. But in my case, that was my first time receiving a poslaju parcel later than  3-4 days? here's a summary of the delivery:


See that? Since the parcel was picked up on the 30th, usually I would get it on the 31st, which is a friday. But this is not Hishop's fault. Definitely PosLaju's fault. 


Condition of parcel:

This is what you will be getting for purchasing anything from them:


p.s. I took this photo from their facebook page

What I got was the same thing but the bottom of my box was torn. (if that is the correct term) 
Thank god nothing in the box was damaged.

I bought 4 items  but only 2 were bubble wrapped. I guess coz it wasn't necessary for the other 2. 



What I think the site should improve on:

The details on some products are not really detailed. you might not get what i mean, so, let me elaborate on that. 
For example: 

Skin Factory P.D.T AC Controler Ampoule Mask

RM9.90
Qty:    
This ampoule silk mask helps resolve troubled and oily skin. It helps calm irritated skin, minimize pores and control against excessive sebum production by the skin. Developed by medical specialists of Hushu Clinic in Korea, the Seoul National University graduates formulated the ampoule mask with natural ingredients that include the Witch Hazel extract, Centella extract, Matricaria Flower extract, and Pusley extract to help soothe problematic skin.
In the above info, can you find anything in it that describes how many pcs you are getting? NO. Plus, the picture is misleading. 
Skin Factory P.D.T AC Controler Ampoule Mask
Sorry for this small pic, but main thing is that one box has 10 of this mask, They should only put a picture of the sheet mask and not with the box.

Another example:

Snail Street AC Trouble Mask

RM16.90
Qty:    
3 in 1: Soothes Troubled Skin + Sebum & Pore Control + Moisturizing.

Snail Street AC Trouble Mask is a premium skincare facial mask which contains Snail Secretions Filtrate from the Helix Aspersa snail species as its active ingredient. Snail Secretion filtrate in this AC Trouble mask helps to soften and dissolve scarred, damaged tissues and rebuilt collagen & elastin. This mask is ideal to heal acne problems.

Bio-multi action effects comes from the snail secretion and bio-engineered mask sheets which helps the essence to be absorbed by the skin effectively. It contains snail secretion extracts which helps troubled and acne skin. Made in Korea.
SKU: HSN-1002NA01
Availability: In Stock

Again, you do not find anything that says how many sheets you are getting. Plus, the picture here is even more misleading. 
Snail Street AC Trouble Mask

Can you see the pic? Clearly shows that there are 5 sheets but in actual fact, you are only getting one sheet. 

Conclusion: Do ask the admins for further clarifications. They are always available for enquiries. 

So yes, The one con about this is the not so detailed info and misleading pictures.

Other than that, this site is quite satisfactory.

Service:

I actually asked them to include a card stating "Happy Birthday!" and they did! Nicely and neatly written!
Quite impressed with this part! 

I did enquire about the mask sheets. they replied really quick.

oh and they send you an email with your tracking number after payment and confirmation which I really like! I don't really like online shops where you have to log in to their sites just to get the tracking number.
So, I really love it that they send you an email stating the tracking number. Very efficient! 

Pricing:

I don't think I can say much considering the price is pretty much retail price. No discount or whatsoever but I did purchase before the 31st of January, so there was a 20% discount store wide. But I don't think they have anymore discounts. Do check their facebook page for more latest info and such!


Payment:

I chose the online banking option. Really fast and efficient. I liked that they use MOLPay!


I guess thats's pretty much what I can say about their site. I might miss out on some info and such.

Do check out their site!




Review: Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay

It's review time!

Product: Aztec Secret Indian healing clay


Size: 908g

Price: RMB140.   ( do note that this is not in Ringgit )

Purchased from: taobao

Update: For malaysians, head over to http://www.facebook.com/pages/Aztec-Secret-Indian-Healing-Clay-Malaysia/617873748227758 to purchase this awesome clay!

Info:


100% natural calcium bentonite (green) clay
For facials, acne, body wraps, clay baths, foot soaks, chilled clay for knee packs.
Handy for insect bites!
Enjoy the benefits of clay in your own home.
Beautify and refresh just as Cleopatra used clay in her beauty ritual in ancient Egypt.


Directions:


Mix healing clay with equal parts of raw apple cider vinegar and/or water.
Best to use a non-metal bowl and utensil.
Stir mixture well, until it is a smooth paste.
Add more clay or liquid as needed.
Apply 1/4 to 1/2 inch layer to the face or other area.
Let it dry for 5-10 min. for delicate skin & 15-20 min for normal skin.
You will feel a pulling and tightening sensation.
FEEL YOUR FACE PULSATE!
Remove clay by washing with warm water
Slight redness of skin is normal and will disappear in about 30 min.


Helps to remove impurities and dirt from the pores.
Deep pore cleansing of the skin.

908g is claimed to be able to make 20-30 facials but from what I can see, it can certainly make more than that. 


My experience:

Mixing the clay with apple cider vinegar was indeed a fun process! 
You will see bubbles, like lots n lots of bubbles!
I don't enjoy the smell though.
It's well, smell of apple mix with vinegar.
I use 1 tablespoon of clay and 1 tablespoon of vinegar.
That is actually more than enough!

I actually prefer mixing it with apple cider vinegar despite the smell for various reasons:
It doesn't clump up like when you mix it with water.
The effect seems so much better.




Pictures will be updated soon!



Pictures:

1/2 tablespoon of clay:




Closer look:




1/2 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar poured in:





Watch as the mixture bubbles up more:





More bubbles are formed and mixture is quite mixed:





Mixture is completely stirred and thoroughly mixed:





This is the brand that I use although it's better to use Bragg's ACV!





The mixture is done! As you can see, no more bubbles:





Closer view of the ready mixed clay:

For you Americans, here's where you can purchase the products:

Happy Chinese New Year!!!


Hope you like my drawing! :P


Best face whitening product!


Greetings!

Ever wanted that fair, glowing looking face? Ever looked for a product that is cheap yet effective in whitening? If yes, then you've probably come to the right post.

I am more than happy to share with you a review on this. I've stopped using this product for a month to check its effectiveness. will explain more now.


Pictures first ok?

Below are the pictures:



\








Ok! Since I've shown you the pictures, let me elaborate about this awesome product. I've been using this product as my only face cleanser for like 2 months and was just amazed with this product. My face got fairer and my pimples were not popping out as frequent, pretty much pimple-less for those 2 months. But back then, I wanted to check if this product was really effective or was it some other product. So, then I changed cleanser for like 2 months. WORST DECISION EVER!

I haven't been using this product since December till just 2 days ago. And guess what? My pimples pop out like ALOT! Face just got so much worse despite trying the Acne.org regimen. Seriously regretted my decision of not using this awesome soap!

2 days ago, I opened the package and started using this soap again. Pimples subdued (if that's even the correct term), face became fairer and my skin started giving that natural glow! Pimple scars are still there but I'm quite confident that the scars will lighten 2 months from now, or maybe even a month from now. That's just how confident I am with this soap!


I totally swear by it. Even told mom that before I go to China to further my studies, I'm gonna restock on this and buy like a total of a dozen! 


By the way, now I'll talk about the process of using this. Even though they claimed that your skin won't peel, but when I first started using this product, my skin did peel for like 2 days. I think it was because I had a very bad case of severe acne that time. But this soap dried up my acne and after that my skin never peeled ever again. Even now, I assumed that my skin would peel considering I've not used this soap for 2 months but surprisingly  my skin did not peel! So, this is like a WARNING to you. In case your skin does peel like for 2 days, bear with it, because you will not regret it after. I considered stopping but I didn't because I wanted to give this soap a chance and I'm so glad I didn't stop using it just coz of my skin peeling. Right after that, my skin improved ALOT! That was my case though. I can't guarantee for you since everyone has different skin conditions. 



Anyways, I'm also selling this product for people who can't seem to find it. I'm selling it for RM7 per pcs and if you buy a dozen, it's RM50. It's very cheap considering it last really long. price that I mentioned is excluding postage. Postage isn't that expensive. I'm charging according to PosLaju rates. So, do contact me for more info regarding the price or maybe even more info bout this soap like the process, or how to use it or absolutely anything.
