Pizza Hut's 30th Anniversary


Woohoo!!! Was invited to Pizza Hut's 30th anniversary food tasting session where some bloggers and I had a first chance to try out their new menu which includes 25 new recipes!

(My first session with Pizza hut HERE)

6 new appertizers, 3 new pastas, 6 new Western favourites, 1 new baked rice, 2 new pizzas, 5 new beverages and 2 new desserts! So exciting.

I went there a very hungry girl and came out with my stomach almost exploding. Here are pics of some of my favourites:

Had an Emerald Sparkle which is just a creative name for my apple soda. Coz I was craving green apple that day! Refreshing and fizzy with little cubes of apple in it. :D

Stupid Huiwen snapped a pic of me as I was taking off my invisalign. LOL

After an unglam photo must post a pretty photo

We were all treated to the Pizza Hut staff dancing - then finally... FOOD!

Bruschetta with tomatoes and bruschetta with mushrooms

Crispy garlicky butter toast is the way to start!! 
Especially love the mushroom one. Definitely a more creative choice.

Gobbling coz I was SO hungry. But I was responsible enough to stop mid-bite for a picture.

Thick fries on dips, served with a grilled cheese sauce and a salsa!!

Fries might be common and boring but imho it is very difficult to get perfect fries!! These were piping hot and crispy, and I LOVEEEEEE the cheese sauce! Even asked for a second helping of it. It seemed like everyone loves the cheese - the other sauce was kinda neglected.

Hut's Platter - what can I say?

Fried food's always good. The sweet n' spicy drumlets are definitely the star though. Also included are criss-cut fries, calamari and tempura prawns. I love the prawns!  Great for sharing or if you like variety in your appetitzers.

Hot favourite! Cheesy mushrooms!

The mushrooms were super juicy and almost bursts in your mouth!
Combined with melty slightly burnt cheese. Awesome.

My favourite of the day has to be the Cheesy mussels... Succulent mussels hidden under a thick layer of cheese and the little extra touch of bacon. Gone within seconds!

I love how the shell is like a spoon so you can slurp up the rest of the juices/leftover cheese after eating the mussel itself.

Here's a pic of  "Lady" Iron Chef  (Brad) taking a pic of our next dish, the Hut's Chicken Steak.

Hate him and his $3,000++ sibeh pro camera putting my poor LX3 to shame!!!!!!! Don't like this lah everyone also blogger why you so professional!!

Don't believe me? Here's MY picture, taken with a $800 (2 years ago) camera:

It looks ok... Not terrible but meh...

And here's Brad's... I WANNA RAPE THAT CHICKEN!! Ffffffffuuuu

Don't say it's skills ok!!!! Brad helped me take a picture with my camera and it also looks sucky so it's the equipment!!

I can't be bothered to describe the chicken coz that photo does all the selling.

Seafood fiesta baked rice

For cheese and tomato sauce lovers. It tastes kinda unique coz it's a little sweet with pineapples inside. Full of mussels, prawns and calamari!

Huiwen photobombing me

Finally a pizza!!!!!!!

Captain's Catch Pizza!

Super creative with potato chips on it!! This pizza has a generous amount of fried fish (like 炸鱼片) on it too. The sauce is kinda creamy and cheesy. Definitely something special unlike your usual pizzas!

Huiwen snapping a pic of me replenishing lip gloss. What? Must look good in photos what! Remember lipgloss cannot be photoshopped!


Choco-Berry Banana Dessert Pizza!!

When we all ate this we thought it was just a biscuit under the fruits but it's real pizza!! Sprinkled with chocolate sauce, strawberries and bananas. I love those two fruits!!

So that concludes my blog entry... If you wanna try any of these, head out to any one of the 24 Pizza Hut outlets islandwide!

Hope I didn't make any of you too hungry!

Happy 30th birthday Pizza Hut!

Video tutorial + Camwhoring pictures!

Angelababy inspired make up!!

Numbered for your easy commenting. I am so considerate.

I look so different with brown hair wtf... I've been blonde too long to get used to this.

Love the quality of the photos and the video (In HD omg professional much?)!

Taken with my new Panasonic GH1 camera! If you recall in THIS entry it was the camera I wanted to buy long ago but decided not to coz I didn't do videos then. I was like PAH! HD VIDEOS WHO NEEDS THEM? And now I do... Moron.

And now I have a hugeass DSLR sitting around unused and unloved. Guess I'd sell it whenever I can be bothered to.

Thanks for the support on the subscriptions and nice comments left! I freaking love you guys!

Adventures with Za in Bangkok!


Gotta love the peeps from ZA! They were launching a few exciting new products and unveiling their new ZA ambassador and she is Thai, so I got to tag along with other reporters to go to Bangkok for the regional press conference to meet her!

ZA also launched two new products - the True White Plus foundation (revamped from their best-selling foundation) and True White Plus Instant Brightener (totally new product)!

As an, ahem, backstage beauty reporter, I got to try out both products before they are even launched! Excitedness. I'm super obsessed with any product that makes my skin more gorgeous!

Got flown first class!

Ok just kidding. Not quite there yet. But my friend from SQ somehow had a colleague on that flight and she gave me that! You get to go to a special line during immigrations but I was a moron and mistook the first class line for the family line (where they do families with kids) and still waited a long time while confused parents and grannies stared at me. :(

We all hop along to Siam Discovery Lawn where they had the Za event.

There was a gorgeous Za BMW parked there so of course must camwhore with it!

The unabashedly pink stage. Love it!

Signing in as press. We got front row seats!

My pink Za moment!

Two pretty Thai girls hamming it up for me

Za's comprehensive range of skincare products on display

 The catwalk/fashion show! Love the happy girly vibe!!

AND DENG DENG DENG!! Someone drives in front of the stage!!

Baited breath, who is she?

She is Davika Hoorne, Za's latest ambassador.
And she is super duper gorgeous maximum!!

There she is being cute while posing... She's only 18!!!! 
And already a popular actress in Thailand. FML :(

There she is chatting with the host in rapid Thai. The host is also super cute but man Davika is like... statuesque.

End of the show....

Davika + models. Don't see already ok? Don't look at those legs it's depressing.

The next day, there was a series of press interviews with Davika and I got to sit in.

There she is, looking at her own picture. With the exact same hair and shoes as yesterday coz that attire's what she was wearing in all the posters! LOL so cute, I bet she has like 20 of this silvery dress!

A picture with Davika... She's very sweet and cute irl, it's super hard not to like her. But at the same time I'd prefer not to take photos with her anymore lol

And if you like our skin in the picture, guess what foundation we are both using? LOL

Brought my mom on this trip with me. Picture taken in the hotel room. She's awesome.

So what's Za launching?

Here are the camwhore pics with my new Za products!

True White Plus Instant Brightener

This little bottle seems so unassuming but it's AWESOME!!

What's a "brightener"? It is a new genre of BB cream. The Brightener is a fuss-free way to achieve pearly glowing skin instantly - brightening your skin, evening out skin tone and smoothening skin complexion!

The Instant Brightener is liquid instead of cream like BB creams. It is actually very light and goes on smooth with light-coverage. Your skin won't feel caked and unable to breathe.

The best thing about the Instant Brightener is that instead of the dull beige or greyish beige tone that most bb creams have, it's pinkish! Suitable for most Asian skin which has yellow undertones.

This evens out skin tone and gives you that coveted "no makeup but I still look awesome" look!

Also, it contains brightening pearls inside which gives you a super nice glow! It also has a whitening ingredient called Super HS Vitamin C to lighten scars and dark spots! LOVE!!

SPF 30 PA+++ ensures your skin doesn't get sun damage while you are out too!

Nude translucent look with no foundation, just the Instant Brightener on!

The Instant Brightener also reduces redness, soothes inflammation and stops oil and shine and lasts up to 8 hours. Great for a day out where you don't feel like piling on the makeup.

You can also use the Instant Brightener with other products like concealers or foundation.

The steps should be:

1) Skincare (moisturizers, sun protection etc)
2) True White Plus Instant Brightener
3) Foundation

Now for the True White Plus 2-way foundation!!

I've raved many times before about how awesome Za's foundations are, so when they told me the True White Plus foundation is even better, I was pretty doubtful.

[The True White Plus 2-way foundation is a reformulated and improved version of the current best-selling True White  2-way foundation. It is a whitening foundation, apt for users who are concerned with whitening while the Skin Beauty foundation I tried in the previous post is more apt for users who are concerned with moisturizing.]

But I was really pleasantly surprised!

The texture and finish is even finer than before so when applied (with a wet sponge like I prefer), the foundation goes on smoother and covers more fine lines, which is awesome! This is with the help of the Spotless Brightening Powder ingredient, which evens complexion.

The whitening C ingredient to diminish appearance of dark spots and freckles also means that girls who want fairer brighter skin will love it!


Candy look - This is with the Instant Brightener under my foundation

Love it
