Humble House Taipei 寒舍艾麗酒店

Choosing the right hotel to stay when travelling is essential, I need a good place to rest after a long day outside. The trip to Taiwan this time is to do a studio recording for my new song with Billy Koh (许环良), Asia’s top music producer. It was my first time staying in Humble House Hotel at Taipei and I must say this is one of the best hotels that I have ever experienced in Taiwan. Humble House had generously invited and sponsored our stay for 7 days, in addition, my room was arranged right in-front of the incredible view of Taipei 101! I was really thrilled and felt grateful for such kind gestures from Humble House. I received excellent hospitality and can’t help but sing praises for the service team.

The hotel is situated just next to iconic Taipei 101 and surrounded by many popular department stores, night markets and Taipei World Trade Centre. It is also convenient to access transportation, just 40 minutes drive from Taoyuan airport to reach. There are lots of nice restaurants to eat, trendy places to do your shopping and even talented street performances to watch! Awesome entertaining activities to enjoy around the vicinity, how good is that? Or if you prefer a quiet place to read books, you can make a trip to visit the popular book store (成品书局).

Upon stepping in the hotel lobby, we were immediately greeted by the marketing team with the warmest welcome. The reception was very thoughtful to have arranged our rooms ready for us to take a rest as soon as possible after a long flight from Singapore. We are only required to do the usual registration procedures the next day, I was quite surprised with such detailed preparation.

In the morning we were led to the VIP area for our breakfast. The vibrant Italian restaurant at LaFarfalla offers a wide range of delicious food selection. After a good meal, I head over to the outdoor swimming pool for a swim, I like to swim in the morning and night to relax myself. The night scenery is especially beautiful with dazzling bright lights and tall buildings looking incredible, it felt like the city is filled with life and bustling energy. Apart from that, if you are a health-conscious person like me, you got to try the hotel’s gym, it is well-equipped and has a large space ideal for leisure work out.

When night falls, sip a few glasses of cocktails at the cozy bar at The Terrace. It is the perfect place exuding a romantic, relaxing and elegant vibe to wind down. They serve excellent drinks for guests to relish in this peaceful environment. Before turning to the bed, it’s not a bad idea to get a little tipsy. In conclusion, the stay here at Humble House is truly unforgettable, I will definitely be back here again.

My Banh Mi- Number 1 Baguette in Vietnam

I personally like food that can be eaten for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The Vietnamese sandwich also known as baguette is one that fits all occasions. My Banh Mi offers the number one Banh Mi in Vietnam and has now landed in Singapore as the first outlet in Asia. Locals can get a taste of this unique sandwich that offers a range of healthy, flavorful and tasty selections.

My Banh Mi is also well known for it’s crispy yet soft baguette and their special home-made sauces that complements seamlessly. We arranged for a take-away and I expected the bread to lose it’s crispiness but surprisingly, the quality is still as good! You will know why after watching the video.

Lemongrass Chicken with Spicy Garlic Sauce
The tender marinated chicken is packed with lemongrass fragrance, pairing with the speciality spicy garlic sauce makes it even more tastier. This wholesome delicacy comes with a generous portion of coriander, shredded onions, red chilies and cucumber pieces. My favourite out of the rest.

Roasted Pork
Succulent roasted pork is dipped into a unique concoction of coconut juice, black pepper and garlic before serving. The meat has entirely absorbed the goodness exuding a special aroma. These 3 flavors blend together perfectly with the added creamy smoked roasted black pepper sauce, one bite and you can taste ‘heaven’.

Bun Thit Nuong Vietnamese Rice Noodles
This dish is commonly found in Vietnam but each brand has it’s own recipe. My Banh Mi created an incredibly delicious version of their own. The marinated pork is soft and juicy, a great combination with the rice noodles mixed with a wide variety of refreshing greens offering a better texture. The sweet-spicy special sauce served at the side forms a perfect match.

Feedbacks on Sothy Facial Products

As a public figure, I have to pay extra attention to my skin condition especially during my video filming. After trying Sothy’s latest products for a few months, I must say it’s amazing. It is now part of my daily facial care routine, my complexion improved greatly since using the recommended Reconstructive Youth Serum. Following proper instructions, I applied 2 pumps in the morning and evening and my skin felt an instant moisturising effect. What I like most is the non-stickiness of the gel-oil texture which does not feel uncomfortable on my hands. The nourishing ingredients revitalises my skin, definitely makes me look younger!

The Perfect Shape Youth Serum is another product recommended by Sothy’s beautician, it is one of the facial products I need most. I felt an obvious difference with a satisfying result within a fairly short time of 3 weeks. My skin felt much smoother, lighter and brighter. It reshapes, redefines and maintain the contours of my face shape. As usual, I followed the procedures consistently using it twice a day for a faster result. I have tried various products in the past yet Sothy has left me a deep impression, the trusted brand certainly live up to it’s name for sustaining such excellent quality for more than 70 years of history.

想健身先从【跑步】开始吧 ~

一直以来我都有在我的部落格分享一些我的健身心得但是还是很多网友问我为何我还能那么逍遥的尝尽天下美食却能保持着那么Fit的身形。还是那句老套的说:想健身先从「跑步」开始吧! 跑步是人的本能, 我相信大家都会害怕着同一个问题就是跑了短短不到1KM就已开始喘的不行了...所以我想说: 坚持真的很重要,刚开始跑步,最好选择慢跑,不要过于心急于看到成果,总有那么一天你也会像我一样有着Fit Fit的身形。

这里我也分享一些Tips给大家参考,跑步贵在于坚持, 虽然很简单却未必每个人能够做到持之以恒, 所以调整一下自己的心态尽量随性一点, 就比如选择一个自己比较喜欢跑步的环境,刚开始就根据自己的体格承受度来定制步速和距离, 千万不可好高骛远,逼自己第一次就跑个半死, 慢跑哪怕是一圈两圈也好, 最重要是让自己开始爱上跑步喜欢跑步适合自己才是最好的!

Zao Lek Lok Lok- Fried, Grilled, Boiled Skewered Buffet

‘Lok Lok’ is one of the most popular street food originated from Penang, Malaysia. It is actually a variety of skewered deep-fried food which consist of vegetable and meat and eaten with different types of gravy or soup. This unique culture has spread to Singapore since it is well-loved by many locals.

Nestled in Paya Lebar Kovan Community Centre, it has an outdoor buffet concept where you can dine at a breezy and comfortable environment without feeling too packed. Zao Lek Lok Lok will make you spoilt for choices as there are over 80 type of skewers ranging from deep-fried, boiling and grilling as well as 6 selections of soup base to choose from. They have Tom Yum, Laksa, Bak Kut Teh, Chicken broth, Satay and last but not least Ma La flavor all boiled from scratch without adding artificial flavorings.

I was quite worried about the deep-fried items at first because they are usually too oily and coated with a thick layer of fried batter, but I am amazed that the fried food here are not as such! It is the total opposite of what I have expected. Each of the ingredient is fried to an extremely crispy texture with a thin outer coating and they will only fry upon order to keep it hot. For fried and boiled items are hand-picked by yourself, but for grilled items the service crew will recommend some of the popular ones to give you a little surprise, that is what I like about eating here.

When cooked with the scrumptious soup base, the ingredients gradually releases it’s flavors, blending together with the soup and enhancing the taste to be of natural sweetness. It is not necessary to add other condiments such as chilli or soy sauce into your soup.

The restaurant has a great concept and hygienic practice, all ingredients are kept in the refrigerator to make sure the quality is retained and customers can relish on fresh servings. Other than that, there are fruits and ice cream for dessert after a heavy meal. Now I do not need to travel to Malaysia just to eat ‘Lok Lok’, I can conveniently bring my foodie kakis here to satisfy our cravings anytime!
