Bamboo Briyani at Gamuda Walk, Kota Kemuning Shah Alam

Thursday, September 21, 2017 0 Comments
It was my first time visited to Gamuda Walk. Yes! totally out of my usual way but I was happened to be there. Gamuda Walk is not that big place to tour around. While touring around , I saw this bunting displaying Bamboo Briyani Rice. I was so excited! Damn! I was longing to taste this Bamboo Briyani for so long. But most of the place offer such cuisine located so like end of the world for me like Klang. 

I was contemplating to try this since 3 hours earlier just had Briyani Rice with my friend. Me was like....gosh! I wanna try this badly but I was afraid that over ate rice for a day and make me fat. My friend rationalize to me and you know what he said ???

You are already fat anyway...so ? Eating rice twice for a day doesn't make any different. I was like...wanna get angry but realistically that is the fact! WTH! And this idiot ...bought that! ** Face Palm** I am a loser for the day! Whatever it is, the taste of this Briyani really worth it to be called loser to eat rice twice for the day. eheh...like that also can ar?



You won't miss this cafe if you are at Gamuda Walk. The cozy cafe serve this super authentic Bamboo Briyani located Level One , Gamuda Walk near Kota Kemuning Shah Alam.


The front of this cafe display their cuisine specialty which is Bamboo Briyani. You can choose many types of Bamboo Briyani from Chicken , Mutton, Prawn and Lamb Shank. If you don't want your Briyani serves from Bamboo you can choose the Claypot Briyani too.

Cinnamon's Fusion cuisine also serve another unique dishes call Salmon Head Curry. I wanna try that too. Greedy side of me came out. But my fat stomach was crying for being too tight.


My choice for that day was Lamb Shank Bamboo Briyani. I shared this with my friend. So...I was not that glutton after all. **wink wink** with angelic face. 



Tadahhhh!!!! my Lamb Shank Bamboo Briyani reached my table in style. Do not worry about how to eat out the Briyani from that Bamboo. The waiter will come and serve the Briyani out from that Bamboo. Yes!!!! that Bamboo give birth to that Briyani and Lamb Shank onto my plate. OMG! The aroma of what in front of me....lingering through my nose and can't help to mouth watering.


The took away the bamboo from your table after serve it out. Can't wait to devour this Briyani. It look full of spices and herbs. I keep telling myself must review this in my blog. I know won't regret sharing this place to others.


My review on Bamboo Briyani from Cinnamon's Fusion Cuisine :

Isk isk isk ...why your cafe all the way in Kota Kemuning!!!! Why can't you open near KL or PJ ? I wanna eat this at least weekly. The taste is worth of  being call fat! Anyway, while eating this my friend keep telling me 'Basmathi rice' which is the type of rice use to cook Briyani is not fattening. I was like...really???? I can eat this a lot more then. kekekeke
This Briyani rice really cook with lots of herbs and spices in it. It get hot and spicier the more you eat it and you just can't stop. Don't need gravy and according to the Chef who is also the founder of this cafe, Briyani suppose to be eaten as it is without the gravy. The herbs and spices really packed and really hits you on your first mouthful.

Big fan of Briyani like me will never forget this taste. Really the best for me. Try this Bamboo Briyani for once and you know what I am talking about here.


The Chef/ Founder, Mr Nash happily chatting around with his customers and I can tell you they really serious about serving good food and drink to the patrons. He let me try his freshly brewed coffee and I was like damn...this is the black coffee I was looking for. Even the coffee will make me a regular customer if they are much nearer to me. The coffee bean according to Mr Nash is from Puro Fuerte brand which with dark roasted blend of high grown Arabica's with finest Ugandan Robusta's. For coffee lover like me....this is one good black coffee. Don't need sugar! It serves me right!

You can check out their official FB if you need more information of Bamboo Briyani at Cinnamon's Fusion Cuisine.

Where do you eat the best Briyani? Share with me the place please...I wanna check that place out.

Naruko Brightening and Firming Eye Cream

Wednesday, September 13, 2017 14 Comments

I am not sure about any other people but for me , I can't skip the Eye Cream or Serum routine on my eye area. My eye area has lots of problem. Yeah! yeah part of me being both short and far sighted at the same time. (** Face Palm** to that ).

I have terrible eye bag and dark Circle seems like born with me from my Mum Womb. Now that I am past 40s that crow feet eye emerge out of nowhere. Age gracefully and uglier too. Natural ageing kind of sucks sometimes because you need to look in the mirror every morning and the reflection kind of..... WTH! How do I start my morning with that kind of face? ngeeeeeee...such a motivational morning!

Main problem is not wrinkles or dark circle or even that crow feet thingy. I just feel uncomfortable if my eye area is dry. If I skip even one day of eye cream , it will get lot worst.



When I was in Kaohsiung in April this year, I bought Naruko Brightening and Firming Vitamin K Eye Cream Ex which made from Taiwan Magnolia. I bought it at Buy 1 Free 1 deal! kekekeke...Naruko skin care super good bargain there since it originated from Taiwan. So I don't miss the chance and bought back lots of Naruko. They have many good range , you know and kind of good brand. At least it suit me well. I finished Raw Job Tears skin care series recently. I was good! I wish bought more of those back.

Now I am at 2nd tube of this Naruko Taiwan Magnolia Eye Cream. I kin of love this eye cream.

Naruko Taiwan Magnolia Eye Cream claimed :


  • Brightening and firming eye area
  • Ease Dark Circles



My experience after finished off first tube of Naruko Taiwan Magnolia Eye Cream and currently is using the second tube :

I would say it does reduce dark circles. I could feels the elasticity and lifting on eye area. Further more it does reduce my wrinkles a bit. More over, my its not dry anymore. Love it! 

How to use Naruko Taiwan Magnolia Eye Cream ?


Take a pearl sized amount of cream and gently dab around areas with your fingers. You are done!

  • RiRe Luxe Matte Lipstick (mine came with no. 01 Nudy Beige) 

Let us start the make over with Althea Sun-Kissed Box.




SeCriss Pure Nature Mask - White Pearl


I applied this mask sheet the night before bed. Wake up with moisture and bouncy skin. This mask contains natural ingredients and keeps mu skin moist and smooth. It comes with highly concentrated undiluted ampoule which derived from seven ingredients care for skin troubles. The pearl extract makes my skin tone clean and bright the next day..

How I applied Secriss Pure Nature Mask White Pearl ?

I applied the mask sheet after cleansing and toner procedure and then remove it after 20 minutes. Then dab the remaining ampoules and essence onto my skin for better penetration.



Abib Hydration Creme Water tube ,1.5ml


I use this the next day morning before applying make up. Just squeeze out few drops of Abib Hydration Creme Water tube  after toning and this act as serum. Dab gently onto skin for better hydration.


Calmia UV Protection Sun Stick Moist SPF50+/PA++


This is my first time applied UV protection sun stick. I love the glowing effect from this one. It does create the glowing and dewy effect onto my skin naturally. I think because its moist version so my skin is not dry at all the whole day after applied this.


Packaging wise, I really feel stick version like this is way better than the tube one. The smells is pleasant too. Its non sticky but a bit oily for me but that effect is temporary and it last after I applied the CC Cushion.


Bare Blanc Super Fit Cushion SPF50+/PA++ (mine came with No. 23 Natural Beige)


Jaw drop! not so 'kawaii' design. Looking at the packaging already intimidate from that doggy fierce face. Act like real protector. I am not sure if I dare to bring this out and touch up my skin in public. But hell! I don't need to re apply at all while in the office.


The box of this SUPER FIT Cushion may look fierce but the real product is vibrant and cheeky. I thought my skin will look too browny after apply this. Well...NO! I was wrong! It blend well onto my skin. See? My skin not browny , right? When it first touch my skin, I feel like cooling sensation. Loving that refreshing feels. It look super fit blend and even out my skin tone better. My eye bag hidden well too. No need concealer.


Look at My Eye, Eye Shadow (mine came with no. BR425)


Look at My eye!!!! So nice color a warm brown shimmering eye shade.Its not even flaky like other eye shadow.  Super Love the color. Gosh! really no words to describe this. I don't even apply any eye liner to enhance it. It fits me perfectly!


I just hope don't end up with another powdery eye shadow. I kind of clumsy and always drop my eye shadow.




Laneige Ideal Blush Duo , No. 3 Juicy Rose


I one person who always look like tomato cheek whenever applied blusher. I tried this anyway. The color is Juicy Rose and really love the shades. Always fail with shading. So I use the darker to highlight my nose line with hope it look 'less flat'. Aihhhh!!! don't laugh...you see any different? I see none! kekekeke...failed make up tutorial from me. hahaha


I mixed both colors and highlight my cheek bone, chin tip and forehead with it. The reason I was doing that is to bring out the shine and make my skin more rosy. In short, with hope I look sweeter and lively. **Face palm** so shy now! But you see the changes of my look from bare face earlier, right!!!!!


RiRe Luxe Matte Lipstick (mine came with no. 01 Nudy Beige) 


I swear this is matte! and this color works perfectly on me. Look at that! I normally don't pull off on any nudy beige. I look super pale like sick people. Not this one though. I expect matte would dried up my lips. Not this one thought.


From my experience on using RiRe Luxe Matte Lipstick :

* Doesn't dried up my lips
* Color works well with my skin and totally give my make up a natural look
* Unfortunately, this don't last long. Finished after lunch. Gotta re apply.


These days , I love to pose while sleeping. Don't know why! Act sexy with closed eyes. I tried with eyes open but my I look like in shock. I tried to half closed my eyes then it look like so horny. hahaha..  But you see the different after make over before using the Althea Sun-Kissed Box ,right? What is my make up theme again? I am suppose to look natural and not overdone. Did I pull this off ?

This is my usual 'leaning head' pose. Act sweet and pure ! hahaha can throw up blood.

My favourite item from Althea Sun-Kissed Box is Bare Blanc Super Fit Cushion SPF50+/PA+. Really super fit and it still stay even after I walk under the sun with all sweat. DAEBAK!!!!
