Very clean and organized!

Alright here is the best part..
THE FOOD!! *drools*

Salted Vegetable & Beancurd Soup (Mix Fish Head) - RM25

I like how the sour and salty taste go together! 
The taste of the salted vegetable isn't too strong but just nice.
The sour taste wasn't too strong either!

Chinese Herb & Yam Soup (Fish Head) - RM25

 I just love yams and also the taste of this soup!
Very unique taste!

Fish Ball with Glass Noodle Soup  -  RM16

I must say I love the fish balls! Soft and chewy!
The glass noodles (aka Tong Hoon) are a perfect combination with the soup!

Left Side
Steam Chicken with Salt (Kampung Chicken) - RM45 

There was a funny moment while we were all taking pictures of this dish.
Charlotte was busy taking some pictures and suddenly asked this 
" Whats the difference between these two dishes?"
Then someone replied " One is left and the other is right." 

Anyways, the chicken were nicely steamed and the meat was just nice. 
Not overcooked but the texture is perfect!

Fish Fillet with Wasabi & Potato - RM20

This is by far everyone's favourite!
I just love potatoes and the also the best part of 
eating this is..its fried together with fish fillet and wasabi!
Yums!! Will order this when I drop by Alu-Alu Cafe again!
Definitely a recommended dish for you to order!

Stir Fried Fish Fillet with Butter Milk Sauce - RM20 

Who doesn't love buttermilk sauce??
This is just so D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S!
That's all I can say!

Thai Style Ba Jiao Fish Fillet - RM20 

Remember this dish? 
It was served on the first Alu-Alu Restaurant Food Review! 
The famous Thai Style Ba Jiao Fish Fillet really caught everyone's attention!
The sweet and sour taste is simply irresistible!
This is also a recommended this!

Braised Fish Head with Beancurd in Claypot – RM32

I just couldn't stop eating this! You have no idea how good this is! 
Oh for those who doesn't fancy fish head,
 you can request for a different part of the fish to be served for this dish.

Organic Bak Choy with Garlic – RM12

Super crunchy and fresh Bak Choy! 

Braised Fish Head with Enoki Mushroom & Red Dates – RM32

I love the sauce!
 Love how the red dates adds a little
extra taste into the sauce making the whole dish smells really nice! 

  Organic Choy Sum With Braised Superior Sauce – RM12

I am a fan century eggs! This is one awesome vege dish!
Taste like Wa Tan Ho and I love how crunchy the veges are!

Product Review : Treatment Wax and H-Bella Body Polish

Hey hey hey!
It's been a while since I did a product test aye.

Well, I was out shopping in Watsons with Meitzeu yesterday and 
she told me bout' this awesome body scrub she bought.
She told me it smells really nice and its a really nice body scrub 
so I figured why not give it a go and yeah so I bought one!
I also bought a hair repairing treatment wax too since it was on sales. 

Repairing Treatment Wax Honey (Rm 9.40 sales price)

 I've already tried out both and I love it!
My hair feels really soft and the treatment wax smells really good!
This is just perfect for my permed dry hair!

The texture of the wax wasn't too sticky and also not too thick.
 This picture reminds me of Winnie The Pooh with a pot of Hunny! 

H-Bella Blackberry & Black Tea Body Polish (Rm 17.60)

 I also love the body scrub!  
I love the combination of blackberries & black tea!
It smells really good!

 Reminds me of strawberry jam!

Just love the feeling when my skin is being exfoliated!
Feels fresh and clean. No more dead dry skins that's for sure. 
(Kindly ignore the dead skin on my fingers..that's from climbing..xD)

Definitely will get some more when it runs out! 
Don't need to spend too much on the ones 
like those from The Body Shop or any other expensive brands. 
They have many other flavours for the treatment wax and body scrub!
Just drop by to your nearest Watsons to purchase!
