Halal Dim Sum – China Treasures Mount Kiara

 

image

 

Olla everyone!

Do you like to eat dim sum? If yes, then I have a place to recommend. Personally understand how tricky it is to find a halal dim sum restaurant that could cater muslim last time I did write about Siang Restaurant in Sogo and this time I tried a new place.

The restaurant name is China Treasures and it is located inside mount Kiara convention center. If I am not mistaken my husband called it as Sime Darby Convention Center.. well we are living in the new age right now, you may just google or waze your way to the location.

Do bare in mind to book your seat if you don’t want to go back with empty tummy bcoz this place always full house especially on weekends. I went there in January (after few months only got the time to blog about it… hahaha better late than never right?) and so relieved that I made the rsvp. Y? Bcoz when we arrived and while waiting to be seated we saw group of uncle and auntie have to find other place for their makan2 since the place is fully booked.

As for the cost, you may order your dim sum ala carte way and the cost ranging form rm6-20 depending on which type of dish. They also have buffet and it cost around rm69.90 for each person. Since we are rewarding ourself with a brunch then we decided to opt for buffet instead. At that time I just got my bonus and decided to treat my strong pillars (hubby, bro and sofea of coz!) Actually it is a good deal if you are a dim sum lover. Because you may order as many as your heart desire but please make sure don’t waste it k? If you have smaller tummy capacity then I suggest you take the ala carte instead.

One of our favourite dish of the day is the charcoal bun there. It is the black coloured bun you can see in the picture. What make it special apart from the black colour is the filling. It is salty egg filling and im pretty sure they added custard or butter because it is very creamy and yummy!

I cant really remember the name if the dishes by now (after 2 months plus only blog that y laaaa) but I can remember how good it tasted. Not super great but good. Value for money if you love dim sum and go for the ala carte if you are more conscious of the amount of food to makan…  As for the varieties is also quite okay.. not too bad..

I managed to snap this photo of the terms and condition so you will know what opt expect and such. Hope this review is some how helpful if you are looking for a halal dim sum restaurant. If you have any other nice dim sum place that you have tried.. please let me know, would love to try it out as well Smile

 

Arigato and take it easy!

Ultrasonic Hair Treatment and Tansan Hair Wash from Number76 Hair Salon (Review)

image

Olla everyone!

Have you ever think of washing your hair with carbon dioxide? Guessed what? I tried it and today I am going to share with you all the juicy details. Let me start the review invite. Last couple of months I was approached by  Sue Ann (Manager Operations & Marketing) from Number76 Hair Salon. I am very happy when I received her email as I always wanted to try out their renowned service.

Do you know that Number76 Hair Salon have 6 outlets including one in Tokyo? So nice right? Hahaha.. Okay, please don’t get so excited… Even though, I deeply wish got invited to the Tokyo branch… but I am more than happy to be able to try out their service in the first place.

So, the day came and I went to their Starhill Gallery outlet. All you need to do is just go to level “Pamper” and right in front of the glass lift you will be able to see the shop.Like seriously just few steps in front of it. Personally like the interior design of the place. Onething for sure, the designer did a really good job and it makes customer felt instantly pampered.

You may visit their website to check out the pictures of the place or you can just google it. Anyway, what I am saying here is… the woody interior and the layout of the salon is very nice.

Meet Xuan, she is a senior stylist at Number76 Hair Salon and she is my stylist of the day. I greatly appreciate their thoughtfulness. Why? since I am a muslim, they are kind enough to arrange a private room and a female senior stylist. So sweet right?

If you are a muslim like me, no worries on taking care of your “aurat” because they do cater to our need and no extra charges on top. Thank you for respecting our religion!

Xuan informed me that she is going to wash my hair using the Tansan method. This is where is get interesting.. I mean I heard about washing your hair with icy cold water before but for Tansan method they going to wash my hair with water incorporated with Co2… yes my friend.. carbon dioxide..I am like what???? Please excuse my “jakun-ness” as it is new to me.

In the matter of fact, this Tansan method is originated from Japan and was first introduce to malaysia market by Number76 Hair Salon. Technically… just like an everyday hair wash with a twist to it.. using dissolved CO2 in water (saw a big tank behind the washing area.. guessed that must be it) and doesn't have or leave any smell on your hair. How it works? Co2 in the water helps to cleans out pores clogged by sebum. Thereby restoring and injecting life into your hair.

Check out the dirt & excess oils from my scalp! OMg so gross right? I have been walking around with those “euwww” stuff on my head. Good thing is I surely wont miss them.. haha.. I got quite excited when Xuan showed it to me. The exact feeling I got when ever I saw dirt out of my body after scrub session.. yes, it gave almost the same  happy feeling.

Here come the best part. now that my hair is squeaky clean… it is ready to to be treated. I was given an opportunity to try out the brand-new signature treatment which is the Ultrasonic Premium. Previously they introduce the Ultrasonic premium and what makes the difference is the premium version come with 2 times procedure. If I am not mistaken the price difference is only RM30. I would recommend to just upgrade to the Ultrasonic Premium as it is value for your money and you get double the treatment. For current qoutation and consultation, please visit their website.Do you know that you may book your slot via online tooo?

 

 

If you are wondering what makes this Ultrasonic Hair Treatment so special, the secret is this device. you may check out the video above.. It shows that the water droplets vibrated in between the iron. Those hair iron is not your typical hair iron. This one does not give out heat at all. you may even touch the device with your bare hand and wont get injured what so ever..

This device or I shall call it as Ultrasonic iron, vibrates at 37,000 beats per second. So what the big deal huh? It is a big deal. The vibrations helps to separate particle of protein, water and oil during the hair treatment. With this happening, it help to penetrate deep inside your hair and makes the treatment product more effective than ever!

The blanket they provide during the hair wash is soooo comfy. Although, this might not sound ground breaking but I do appreciate little things. So, if you like a soft comfy blanket.. its a plus point Smile

The verdict? I love how it makes my hair felt (and smell) so clean and nice. I like how smooth my hair after the session. Obviously I cant be able to show the before and after result or I have to marry you… hahaha I was told that it is best to do this treatment once a month to maintain your beautiful locks. Conclusion, even if I have to spend my own money.. I believe it is a money well spent.

Before I go home, I was also given with this home kit. As you can see from the picture above.. it comes with 4 tubes. Each tube is for each week. So they provide you home kit which can last up to a month before your next hair treatment session. If that is not thoughtful.. I dont know what is haha
