Braised Shark's Fin with Crab Meat


Flavorful broth and crab meat soaked in the premium shark's fin makes you want to have more of it after each mouth.

Sauteed Tiger Prawn With Salted Egg Yolk

The bland prawn become flavorful with the Crispy Salted Egg Yolk.

Crispy Suckling Pig With Prawn Paste

This is my favourite dish among all the dishes I have tried today, the salty Crispy Suckling Pig perfectly paired with sweet prawn paste rested on the toasted bread makes this a MUST TRY dish when you make a visit to Kuvo.

Kuvo's Signature Crispy Roasted Chicken


I have heard that the chef that cook Kuvo's Signature Crispy Roasted Chicken has a unique way of cooking the chicken in which the chicken is hang for hours after being soaked and after which the oil is being poured on the chicken which is no wonder the chicken is less oily and more flavorful.

Cured Meat Fried Rice In Lotus Leaf

I would say that the fragrant fried rice goes well with the cured meat without being too oily.


Deep-Fried New Year Cake


Crispy skin goes in harmony together with the soft sweet new year cake inside making it so addictive for people with sweet tooth like myself. If you love sweet stuffs, this would be a perfect dish for you.



Chilled Calamansi Jelly

If you are feeling full after the meal, this dessert will help you to stimulate your appetite because the jelly is made of sour Calamansi and some tiny pieces of sour plum sprinkled on it.

Having Yu Sheng during Chinese New Year is a common thing however INDOCAFE offers a unique Yu Sheng with Peranakan Curry Sauce! This is the first time I ever had Yu Sheng with Nyonya Curry Sauce, surprisingly it taste really well as the curry blends well with the sweet plum sauce and I would highly recommend you to try it if you haven taste it before!

Surprisingly, the Fish Maw soup has no fishy taste and absorb the flavors of the other ingredients.

Fresh red snapper goes well with the sweet and sour sauce.

The steamed cabbage comes in huge pieces and they are surprisingly soft and together in harmony with the sweet carrot and juicy mushroom.

GAMISS - CHEAP SHOPPING PALACE FOR WOMEN, MEN & KIDS

Happy New Year 2018! Have you done your CNY Shopping Spree?

Recently discovered a really cheap shopping palace - GAMISS which sells a great variety of items for Women, Men and Kids! I was really surprised by how cheap their items are and they also do wholesale supply which is a great choice for those who are seeking for fashion suppliers.

Here's the link to GAMISS Website:
https://www.gamiss.com/?lkid=76714 

GAMISS sent me some items to do a review on them, at first I didn't have much expectations for the quality of the items as they are really cheap however GAMISS did not disappoint me! The items I received are of good quality, as good as those you see in the retail shop! Let me share with you the items that I have picked and why I love them:

First item will be the Cold Shoulder Striped Top in Purplish Blue 

Cold Shoulder Striped Top - Purplish Blue 

I have picked the Cold Shoulder Striped Top in Purplish Blue, the material is actually polyester and I feel really comfortable wearing it, you can create a casual look by matching it with a shorts which is a perfect outfit for the weather in Singapore. For more information of this product, you can check out the link below:

The next item will be Embossing PU Leather Handbag in Black Color, I would recommend this bag for office ladies as the size of the bag is consider big and able to fit a lot of stuffs! The bag can be used as a handbag as well as a shoulder bag as they provide you a detachable black shoulder strap.

Embossing PU Leather Handbag - Black






detachable black shoulder strap


Zip Compartment Inside the bag



I can feel that the quality of the bag is really good according to the PU Leather, there's a zip compartment and two mini open compartment inside the bag and one open compartment in the front of the bag. The size of the bag is around (L x W X H) 30cm x 17cm x 29cm, big enough to fit an ipad. Out of the 3 items I received, this is my favorite item because I simply love the design of the bag which makes me look stylish and of course the PU leather! For more information of this product, you can check out the link below:

Last item will be Hasp 2 Pieces Crossbody Bag Set in Black





detachable gold chain



Hasp 2 Pieces Crossbody Bag Set - Black

This bag can be used as a handbag as well as a shoulder bag as they provide you a detachable gold chain. There's no zip/inner compartment inside the bag however there's a mini coin pouch included for you to keep your coins. The bag size is around (L x W X H) 21cm x 7cm x 16cm. In my opinion, the material of the bag is not really good as compared to the one above (Embossing PU Leather Handbag - Black) and the material of this bag is NOT scratch proof which means you can easily leave a scratch mark on the bag, besides that, the bag is also pretty small and suitable for those who don't bring much things out. However the price of this bag is really low as compared to the previous bag so I shouldn't complain so much because what we pay is what we get. For more information of this product, you can check out this link below:

Do check out GAMISS Website for more amazing stuffs! The price of the items are really cheap so trust me you won't regret! I hope my review was helpful and I will see you guys again in my next post! :)
