Restaurant Review: Cafe Corridor, Causeway Bay

29 Feb

Met up with one of my best friends on Sunday for brunch, and she chose Cafe Corridor at Causeway Bay.  The cafe is right opposite Times Square, but it’s not easy to spot its entrance. It’s a pretty small cafe with limited tables. When we got there at around 1:30pm, there was only one table left at the corner. This cafe is famous for its coffee, but I don’t drink coffee, so I just ordered a set of All Day Breakfast.

It comes with scrambled egg, hash brown with ketchup, cocktail sausages, bread with a small piece of butter and some salad. The presentation was good; the smiley face on the hash brown was really cute, and I like how mine was different from my friend’s. The scrambled egg was good, not too dry. The cocktail sausages weren’t exciting, just those you can easily get from the supermarket and cook yourself. I particularly like the bread, it’s slightly toasted and it’s not just ordinary plain white bread, there’s herbs in it. For me, the salad dressing was a bit sour, but other than that, everything else was good.

Not the best brunch ever, but I like the environment, the food presentation and the service. If you want to have brunch somewhere else in Causeway Bay, Home at Caroline Hill Road is another good choice too. It’s also a small cafe with limited seats. Their staff are very nice and polite, and it’s a great place to sit and relax. Try their lunch set or their Full Day Breakfast.

Environment: 8/10 (Pretty small and a bit crowded, but still feel comfortable)

Service: 9/10 (The staff were very nice and polite)

Food:  8.5/10 (Pretty nice brunch)

Overall: A nice place to revisit again during non-rush hours.

Address: G/F, 26A Russel Street, Causeway Bay

Review: Senka, Skin Lotion Made from Moisturizing Cream (Dewy)

26 Feb

I first heard about this skincare product from a Taiwanese TV beauty show; it has also received a lot of positive reviews in Asia. The brand Senka may not sound familiar, but it is actually a low-end skincare brand by the Japanese cosmetics brand Shiseido. This skin lotion is formulated with Royal Jelly and Hyaluronic Acid, so it’s supposed to provide long-lasting moisturizing effect. It also claims that it’s an all-in-one product, simplifying skincare routine.

I bought the dewy one, instead of the refreshing one, because my skin is pretty dry during winter, so I want something rich. It’s very easy to distinguish between the two, the dewy one has a pink cap and the refreshing one has a white cap. The information on the bottle is mostly in Japanese, with some Chinese and minimal English.

The skin lotion is colour-less; the texture is pretty thick, it’s more like a liquid serum. It’s meant to be fragrance-free, however I think it has a strong alcohol smell, which I wasn’t impressed.

The instruction suggests us to apply using a cotton pad, while some people suggest padding the product directly with your hands. I have tried both ways. My skin absorbs the product better when I pad directly with my hands, but I prefer using cotton pad.

I have to say the first impression wasn’t good, my skin felt a bit sticky and wasn’t really hydrated. After using it for more than a week, I still don’t like this product. It’s supposed to give my skin a moisturized feeling like a moisturizing cream, but my skin doesn’t feel hydrated, especially my nose, it remains very dry.

One side note: maybe it’s because I don’t really like applying gel-formula skincare products on my face, and that’s why I also don’t like the famous Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid moisturizing lotion.

To be honest, I don’t think I’m going to repurchase this product. It might be my skin type or my own preference, I personally don’t think it worth the hype at all. I rather use Shiseido AquaLabel toner instead. I also like Shiseido’s Perfect Whip Foam, so if you want to try a new facial cleanser, that’s a good choice too.

P.S. I bought mine at Mannings at HKD$88, but I later found them at the beauty retail store Bonjour priced at HKD$85, which came with a small sample too. I guess from now on, I am not going to buy anything at Mannings or Watson’s, everything there is marked at a higher price!

Day 3@Auckland, New Zealand

21 Feb

Got on the Auckland Explorer Bus at 9:30am, and paid NDZ$40 for a day pass. I got off at the 1st stop, the Bastion Point Lookout, which I think is a must. From there, you get to see a very beautiful view of the coast. If I have time, I would definitely spend more time there.

Then I got off at stop 5 (Auckland Museum), and then changed to the satellite bus, which took me to Mount Eden, the most famous landmark in Auckland. After I got off, I had to walk all the way to the top. It’s a pretty steep slope, but definitely worth it. The view from above is amazing, and it provides good views in all directions over the city. On our guide, it said that the tour buses are banned up on the mountain, but when I left, I heard that it is still available and replaced by smaller vehicles, so better double check that if you want to visit there but don’t want to walk up the slope yourself.

After visiting Mount Eden, I took the satellite bus back to the museum. I got a discount with my Explorer ticket and paid NZD$5 to enter the museum. This is a good place to spend a few hours so as to understand the history and culture of New Zealand. You can also pay a bit more to watch a performance, which I believe is performed by the natives.

Later I got an American hot dog at one of the mobile vendors, and sat down at a nearby area, where they were having a live music performance for free. The hot dog was just average, though I like the sweet chilly sauce.

Then I headed to the Wintergarden, which is near the museum and it’s free of charge. Not a lot of flowers blooming, but I did get some good shots of some lovely flowers.

If you don’t want to spend time figuring out the public transport system, the Explorer bus is perfect. However, if you want to spend some time on each attraction/stop, I don’t think you will be able to. It’s better to find out where you want to go and plan ahead, so everything fits into your schedule. It is also recommended that you visit the places on the satellite bus route first, before heading to other attractions on the main route, as the satellite bus has limited service hours. You could, of course, pay a bit more and get a 2-day pass, but for me, I don’t think it’s really necessary. If you need to visit some of those attractions, I’m sure you can go to the transport center and ask for directions.

Headed back to the city and watched one of the street performances, as Auckland was holding the International Buskers Festival at that time. The performers come from different parts of the world, and their performances are entertaining and fun.

Then on the way back to my hotel, I got a burger from Burger Fuel. The C N Cheese burger is huge, it has a beef patty, lettuce, tomatoes, aioli, cheese, tomato sauce, onion, sesame bun. The burger is good, and I particularly like the sesame bun, as it’s slightly toasted.

Review: Cetaphil, Gentle Skin Cleanser

17 Feb

After finish using my Yes To Carrots daily cream cleanser, I had to look for a new facial cleanser, because I don’t think the Yes to Carrots’ line is sold in Hong Kong. Since coming back home, my skin started to break out and have rashes, especially on my cheek; so when I saw people recommending Cetaphil’s Gentle Skin Cleaner for sensitive skin, I decided to give it a try. I saw them at Watson’s, and it was sold at HKD$79.9 for 237mL. However I went to a local pharmacy and found that they were sold at a cheaper price, so definitely check out your local pharmacy instead of the chained ones.

Description on the back of the bottle

When I first poured the cleanser out, I was expecting the texture to be thicker, but it was more like a liquid gel. The cleanser is fragrance-free and colour-free. After using it for the first time, my skin felt clean and softer, and it didn’t make my skin feel tight and dry.

I have been using it for a week already. Not sure if it’s because I switched to this product or it’s just because my skin is recovering itself, my skin is back to normal now, and has become softer too.

This cleanser is relatively cheap and very gentle to your skin. However, there is one downside: the cleanser doesn’t come with a pump, so it isn’t that convenient to use and it’s hard to control the amount being poured out each time. On their website, the photo shows that their products do come with a pump, so I’m guessing it’s just because I bought the 237mL one, instead of the 473mL, which was the one shown on the website.

One more thing to add: on its website, it says that the cleanser is great for daily makeup removal; however I’m a bit skeptical about that. I tried to remove the make-up swatches on the back of my hand, but it didn’t remove much. Therefore, I will never use this product as a make-up remover.

P.S. I later found them sold even cheaper at the beauty retail store Bonjour, I think it was around HKD$60.

Review: February 2012 Glossybox

16 Feb

UPDATE (18/2): GlossyBox has announced on its website and Facebook page that they are going to delay the launch of the service. 

I first heard about the GlossyBox and other similar beauty box subcriptions through Youtube. Recently when I was reading some Hong Kong-based blogs, I realized that we can now subscribe to these beauty boxes in Hong Kong too. I was so excited about it, so after doing some research, I decided to order the GlossyBox.

I won’t say I’m super interested in cosmetics and beauty trends, but since I started watching beauty videos on YouTube, I became more aware of these new or popular products in the market. I will get excited when I watch the reviews and videos, but I don’t actually buy them. However, the idea of receiving a GlossyBox each month for just HKD$120 is tempting. Since it’s easy to cancel my subscription any time I want, I think it would be great to at least give it a try and see if I would like the products sent to me.

The company gave me a good impression before I got my first GlossyBox. Due to some technical problems, my profile showed that I have ordered 2 GlossyBox, one completed order and one processing order, so I sent the company an e-mail asking them to check the problem for me. The following evening, a staff from their team replied me and apologized for the confusion and any inconvenience caused.

Finally on Valentine’s Day morning, I got a call from the delivery company, Yamato Transport, and he asked when I would be home to collect my GlossyBox. I was out at that time and I wasn’t sure if the security office would be willing to keep it for me, so I told him he could give it a try, if not he could come over later that afternoon. He kindly said he would do as I suggested. An hour later, he called me again to let me know he left my GlossyBox at the security office and reminded me to pick it up when I get home. He was very polite, nice and responsible, not like other delivery men I have encountered in the past. Although the service was good, it might be a bit inconvenient for those who work and couldn’t have their box sent to their office or have someone to collect their box for them at home; so for those who have the above situation, better see if they deliver during off-hours or weekends.

It comes in a greyish cardboard delivery box, with the word GLOSSYBOX and their logo in pink printed on it. It’s fun to tear off the strip to open the box, it’s like unwrapping a Christmas present. Inside is the bright pink box, it’s so cute and adorable; I think I should keep it and use it as a storage box. Everything was so nicely packed and wrapped that I felt the need to unwrap it with extra care, so that I don’t ruin it.

It comes with a pink envelope which includes a card with all the product description and some coupons. Apart from the Leonidas’ free chocolate sample coupon, I’m not really interested in the other ones. Or maybe if I like Apivita’s products, I will use that coupon.

I have never tried any of the brands before, but I have heard most of them, except Premier. I’m interested in Apivita’s products, but have never taken the initiative to try their products; it’s exciting that they included a full-size lip balm as I am planning to get a new lip balm soon. I am also looking forward to trying their masks too. I think we all know that Clarins is a luxury brand, so I don’t think I can afford to buy their products, but it’s great to see their sample included. As for the hair products, they smell good; however both are for highlighted or sensitised, colour-treated hair, so they might not be suitable for me. Lastly the body butter, it doesn’t sound very attractive to me.

Well, I have to say, when compared to the beauty boxes I have seen online, this February GlossyBox isn’t up to my expectation, especially when we are all expecting a bit more for the Valentine’s special edition. As you can see from their Facebook page, many people were very upset with the products and I guess the company would be losing some customers, as they have other subscriptions to choose from. Their staff also didn’t do a great job when they tried to respond to their customers’ complaints, particularly when one of their staff posted a long comment, trying to explain the whole thing.

For me, I am a bit disappointed, not really because of the product size, instead it’s because it seems like everyone is receiving the same products. I remember completing the beauty profile on their website, so I thought they would be giving us products according to our skin type and preference; so hopefully they would have a wider range of products to match different people in the future. The other reason why I am disappointed is because I personally like the brands and the products in the January box better; I really want to try the Becca Beach Tint, Moroccan Oil and Bliss’ products.

I understand they just started off their business in Hong Kong and I think they will try to improve, especially after all those negative comments on their Facebook page. I’m still happy with the brands they work with, so I would order the March GlossyBox and give it another try before I decide whether I would unsubscribe or not. Hopefully it does a better job next time.

P.S. Product reviews will be up after I have tried them.

  • Apivita Intensive Hydrating Mask with Cucumber:
    I really like this hydrating mask! It’s a cream mask with a hint of refreshing cucumber scent. I applied a thick layer on my face and left it for 10 mins. After washing off the mask, my skin feels very hydrated, nourished and smooth.

Day 2@Auckland, New Zealand

9 Feb

Early in the morning, I went to the City Farmer’s Market in the centre of Auckland’s Britomart precinct. There weren’t a lot of stalls there and it was a bit quiet. They were mainly food stalls, selling street food, bread, fruits and vegetables. Nothing much special when compared to Sydney’s weekend markets, so I just hang around for a while and left without buying anything.

Then I went down to Quay Street and walked towards Auckland’s Fish Market. I ended up at a few different locations, the Princes Wharf and the Viaduct Events Centre where they were holding the Auckland Seafood Festival. There were a lot of people lining outside to join the Festival, but I wasn’t too interested in paying NZD$20 to enter, so I just walked along the Waterfront. Found this interesting place at Wynyard Quarter where they have a kids’ playspace, some interesting buildings and a small market with a few stalls selling food, clothing and accessories. Definitely should visit this place and walk around!

Originally I planned to grab lunch at the Fish Market, however nothing really attracted me. I really miss the crowded Sydney Fish Market. One place worth visiting at the Fish Market though, it’s the little grocery place where they were free tasting. At last, I ended up buying a pork sausage roll at one of the food stalls at Silo Park, which was pretty good. It came with a pork sausage, aioli, carmelized onion and ketchup.

Then I sat down under the sun, lying on the grass, eating my pork sausage roll and wrote some postcards.

After that, I started wandering around, I ended up at Victoria Park first and then Victoria Park Market, which I believe hasn’t really completely re-opened yet.

Later I headed towards Auckland Art Gallery, a nice place to spend some time there, especially to enjoy some artworks by local kiwi.

After that I went to Albert Park for a walk and walked around the campus of University of Auckland nearby; at last I reached Beach Road then back to Queen Street.

On the way back to my hotel, I got some more postcards, bought a box of sushi for NZD$5, which was okay, and a peanut brownie cookie from Mrs Higgins. It was good, just wasn’t that special, it’s basically a brownie in the shape of a cookie.

Day 1@Auckland, New Zealand

6 Feb

I made a search and found that Air New Zealand had the lowest one-trip flight fare from Sydney to Hong Kong, apart from China Airlines. I went to Air New Zealand’s official website, and found that if I stop over at Auckland, it would only cost me an extra AUD$30, so I decided to stop over for 5 days, which was the option with the lowest fare.

I’m sure it’s not my first time in New Zealand, but I don’t remember where I have been and which airline I was on when I was young. As far as I remember, I haven’t been on Air New Zealand for the last 12 years. I have been flying a lot with different airlines these few years, so I thought it would be interesting to see how other airlines do and make a comparison.

The boarding time printed on the boarding pass was one hour before the flight departs, but we only started boarding 25 minutes before. I think they had some problems with passengers who booked their tickets with another airline, because the flight was a shared code one, so they firstly had to find these passengers and change their boarding pass. Later when most passengers were on board, there was a missing passenger. After that passenger was found, another passenger lost his/her passport and I don’t think that passenger eventually found it.

After some delays, I was finally off to Auckland. I was on the Works, so I was served lunch. I chose the beef casserole with mash and peas, it also came with sushi and an apricot cake. Not the best flight meal I have ever had, but it’s good, especially the mash and the dessert. The beef casserole was a bit salty and the beef was slighty dry. The sushi isn’t like real Japanese nor Korean ones, but I was a bit surprised to see them serving sushi as a side.

One thing I really like about NZ is their seat, it’s very comfortable. In the past, Cathay Pacific used to be one of my favourite airlines, as their flight meals and service are usually pretty good, and they have very good entertainment system with a wide range of movie and music selection. However, recently I don’t really want to fly with CX, especially for a long haul flight. This is mainly because their seat is very hard and really uncomfortable.

After 3 hours, I finally landed Auckland; getting through customs and immigration was pretty smooth. I heard many bloggers saying that it usually takes a long time to get through; however the staff only asked me a few questions on what kind of medicine and food I had and then I was set to go.

I took the Airbus Express, it took me less than an hour and I arrived at my hotel. After I settled down, I went out and immediately headed to the post office to get some stamps so that I can send some postcards to my friends. I later realize that most of the souvenir shops do sell stamps, so you don’t really need to go to the post office to get them. Then I was hanging around, going in and out souvenir shops, just in search for some pretty postcards but not other stuffs, because my luggage is overweight, so I can’t buy anything! I also went to Countdown, the New Zealand version of Woolworth, to get some breakfast, water and snacks.

The highlight of the day was heading to The White Lady for a burger. It was voted as the Number 1 thing to do in Auckland, so I went there at around 6:45pm, and I saw around 8 people making an order while I was waiting. I ordered an egg burger, and it took some time for it to be done.

There were fresh lettuce and tomato, browned onion, ketchup, grilled meat patty, and a fried egg. The beef patty was good, though it was a bit salty. The lettuce and tomato were super fresh! I can’t say it’s the best burger, but I’m a fan of food stalls on the street; so the White Lady is definitely different from many burger shops out there, and their burgers are delicious.

Review: Revlon, ColourBurst Lip Butter, Peach Parfait, Berry Smoothie & Pink Truffle

3 Feb

I finally bought the Revlon Lip Butter. It’s a rare purchase for me, because I don’t wear lip stick at all, I only put lip balm; however, recently I am looking for a tinted lip balm. 2 months ago, I bought the Mentholatum Water Colour Vintage Pink (01) (HK$26.0), and it was a total disappointment, because the colour looks weird on my lips and it doesn’t feel comfortable, it made my lips dry and flaky. I also thought of buying Burt’s Bee’s tinted lip balm, but I heard that they don’t worth for the price, so I was a bit hesitant.

As I saw so many good reviews about the Revlon Lip Butter, I decided to go for it. I heard that they are always out of stock in the States, but I don’t think they are that popular in Hong Kong. I easily found them at one of the Watson’s stores. I didn’t want to buy a lot, because I’m not sure if I would like them and I’m not sure if these products suit me. I checked out all the colours and in the end I chose Peach Parfait (025).

They were originally HKD$98, but for some reasons, they were sold at a discounted price today. After paying, I was tempted to buy a second one, but I decided to try out this one before deciding whether I want to get another one.

The packaging is nice and decent, and I like how they named their products, sweet and cute. Some people commented on the clear top, which allows you to see the lip colour; however I still think the colour you see doesn’t always reflect how it looks on your lips.

Swatch: Revlon's Lip Butter Peach Parfait

Swatch: Peach Parfait (025)

Peach Parfait was a bit lighter than I thought, I had to put a few coats on before the colour showed up on my hand. I actually don’t think the colour is very peachy; on my lips they look like a coral colour, in between peach and pink with lots of golden sparkles. The lip butter glides on smoothly and it’s moisturizing, but I don’t think it lasts long. If your lips are really dry, I suggest applying lip balm beforehand, because they are not super moisturizing, not hydrating enough for those who have chapped lips. The colour looks okay on my lips, but I really didn’t like the sparkles, they weren’t super glittery, but you can see tons of sparkles when you look closer.

Overall, I would say it’s worth buying if you are looking for a product to add a bit of colour on your lips, the price is very reasonable and the quality is pretty good. I might buy one or two more colours and update later.

Update (7/2/2012):

Went to Watson’s and got another one, Berry Smoothie (050). This time I finally saw the little tag which says 20% off, so again I got it for HKD$78.4, a really good bargain.

Revlon's Lip Butter Berry Smoothie

Revlon’s ColourBurst Lip Butter Berry Smoothie (050) (HKD$78.4)

This colour is more pigmented and less shimmery; the texture, of course, is buttery and it glides on easily. Peach Parfait and Berry Smoothie look pretty similar when applied on my hand, but on my lips, I like Berry Smoothie more, because this berry-pink colour looks better and I like how it doesn’t have that much sparkles in it.

Update (30/4/2012): 

Was randomly hanging in Watson’s and saw a 25% off discount sign for Revlon’s Lip Butter. After swatching a few different colours on my hand, I decided to get Pink Truffle (01), and it was only HKD$73.5.

Revlon ColourBurst Lip Butter Pink Truffle

Revlon’s ColourBurst Lip Butter Pink Truffle (01) (HKD$73.5)

When I first saw the colour, I thought it might be too dark for me. However, when I swatched it on my hand, it wasn’t that bad, and on my lips, it actually looks very natural.

Swatch: Revlon's Lip Butter Pink Truffle

Swatch: Pink Truffle (01)

It’s kinda of hard to describe Pink Truffle, I would say it’s a plumy pink with a brown undertone. It is a nude colour and because it doesn’t have glitter, so it’s great for everyday wear.

Swatch: Peach Parfait (top), Pink Truffle (middle), Berry Smoothie (bottom)

Swatch comparison (From top to bottom): Peach Parfait, Pink Truffle, Berry Smoothie 

The three colours might look very similar when applied on my hand, but on my lips they are completely different. Peach Parfait is peachy coral colour and it is very shimmery, not my favourite because of the glitter and the colour doesn’t look very flattering on me. Pink Truffle has a brown undertone, it is less shimmery than the other two and is great for everyday wear. Berry Smoothie is a berry-pink colour, looks bright on my lips with a bit of shimmer, so it’s great if I want to give my lips a pop of colour.

Downsides:  

  1. It’s hard to take the lid off, even when I use both my hands. Well, maybe for some people it’s a good thing, because the lid won’t easily come off when you put it in your bag. However, I found it a bit inconvenient, especially I’m used to using one hand to take the lid off.
  2. I think it’s because the product itself is very buttery and soft, so when you pull out too much product and then twist it back into the tube, the mouth of the tube will get a bit messy. The lip butter itself can easily break in the middle, so do take good of it, and try not to leave it under the sun. My Pink Truffle broke in less than a month I got it.
  3. Sometimes my lip becomes flaky and skin starts to peel. Not sure what causes that, because it doesn’t happen all the time, but I guess I won’t recommend these lip butters to people who have dry lips.
