Recently, I have been quite obsessed with teas. I wonder, “Why not bake with it?”. Which, resulted in this wonderful chiffon cake recipe.

I know the combination of Jasmine Green Tea and Cheese sounds weird. But, the Cheese actually complements quite well with the flavor of the leaves.

Jasmine Green Tea drink is a common choice for Singaporean. Though we don’t really put cheese on our baked goods, I got my inspiration from Indonesia. Indonesians love to sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese onto their cakes. I was intrigued to try it out and when I got to try it, it was lovely.

To extract all the flavors out from the tea leaves, I infused the leaves with melted butter. I find that this will yield you a stronger aroma. I also make sure to soak the chiffon cake with brewed sweetened tea. This would make sure that the cake will not dry out when chilling it in the fridge and also at the same time enhancing the flavour of the mild Jasmine Green Tea.

Dekke Hud – Simple Skincare Solution for Men

Dekke Hud

Dekke Hud 

I am always looking for new skincare products! When I was young, I had bad breakouts and since then I started taking care of my skin to prevent it. My friend recently introduced me to Dekke Hud Skincare.

Dekke Hud Skincare is a skincare solution for men. The company tries to make skincare as simple as possible for us, yet with effective results and spa-like therapy in the comfort of our own homes.

I got to try out their facial cleanser and masks.

When I tried out the cleanser for the first time, I instantly fell in love with the wonderful neutral scent it gave out. It doesn’t smell chemical, nor it sniffs like there are tons of fragrance oil added into the product. The cleanser had a light zesty aroma that makes me feel like I was in a Bali’s spa treatment. I’m glad to know that they only used a total of 11 ingredients to formulate this cleanser, keeping out all the other unnecessary ingredients that will irritate your face. Good for people who have sensitive skin.

It lathers easily and washes off quickly. It was gentle on my face. The thing I like about this cleanser was that my face does not feel tight after washing. Most people think that feeling tight and ‘squeaky clean’ after washing is good. However, this just means that the cleanser is too harsh, leading your skin to dehydration and irritation. This is because you are stripping away the natural protective layer of oil that you produced to protect your skin from harmful UV rays and pollutions. By doing so, your skin is aging faster and also can often lead to breakouts as your body will produce more oil to compensate for the lack of moisture. Most men don’t understand this, and even refusing to use moisturizing cream/gel after using those harsh cleansers, resulting in really bad skin conditions.

I do feel cleaned and refreshed after using this cleanser. But, my skin still soft and bouncy!

Next up, I tried out their Mask.

Though I was astonished by the prices, I was told that the reason was due to the fact that these are Bio Cellulose Masks.

 What is Bio Cellulose?

Bio Cellulose was developed as a medical product to treat burns and wounds. While we may not have severe burns or wounds to treat, these masks would penetrate deep into our skin to hydrate and heal our polluted skin well. As these are made from cultured bacteria over a period of 10-days, these masks are natural and do not have any chemical treatments. They are very strict when it comes to manufacturing produces. Hence, the environment to produce these mask are kept in sterile and pure conditions. This is the reason why it is extremely expensive.

This result in a spa-like experience as the quality of the mask is really good and soft.

I feel that my face retain its moisture after using it. You should know that you shouldn’t wash your face after using these types of mask (essence mask), it would be a waste if you do that! Just gentle pad your face with your hands to get all the precious essence absorbed into your face.

Perfect Fluffy Pancakes

Pancakes

Delightful light and fluffy Pancakes. So perfect!

Pancakes

This recipe is a little unconventional. I separated egg yolk and egg white and whisked the egg white with sugar until stiff peaks. This actually helps the pancakes to be light and fluffy.Pancakes

Picture perfect. I actually like to go with a slab of Butter,  drizzle of Maple Syrup, some Berries and a dollop of Greek Yogurt. But, in this case, I did not use any Greek Yogurt for photoshoot wise.

Pancakes for you
