Thick or Watery?

Some people are addicted to hand sanitizers. I'm one of them.

My favourite hand sanitizer from Guardian Pharmacy. Because it's the cheapest and has Disney characters on it.
We're all so concerned about how dirty the escalator rails, shopping carts, steering wheels, flush handles and door handles are. So basically, my routine is whenever I touch anything considered germy, I'll use the hand sanitizer. Result? Extremely dry hands xD LOL

And how does a noob counter a problem like this? Body Lotion of course! :D

The question is: what kind?

I have quite a number of body lotions but I'll compare my favourite two in this post.

In the White Corner; NIVEA EXTRA WHITENING INNER CELL BODY REPAIR BODY MILK (for frequent sun exposure)


here's how the consistency looks like for Nivea:

When applied, its somewhat greasy and creates shine on the skin. Disappears after awhile and the fragrance is not very lasting. If you look closer, you'll be able to see little air bubbles inside. So from this we know its not very thick.

and Bioglo:

Not greasy, lasting fragrance and absorbs better into the skin \(^_^)/ very rich consistency.

From what I've learned online, the thicker ones are for dry skin types and the watery ones are for oily skinned. I jiggled the two lotions side by side on my fingers and this is what I got:

Verdict? If you're having dry skin, look for the thicker consistency types. Bioglo is now my favourite because I don't really like shinny and greasy skin. + cherry blossom smells so good! :D My skin stopped peeling after a few nights of lotion applications^^ Happy reading!

Wholesome Wallop

I was heading out for dinner without much plans in mind. Basically want something cheap and makes me full. While in the car passing through Chow Yang, I passed by this HUGE IMPOSSIBLE-TO-MISS BIG RED SIGN that says "WALLOP BURGER" and "Pork Burger" in fine print at the bottom.

Out of curiosity, I decided to drop in and check it out~ besides Ninja Joe, I don't know where else I could find pork burgers. And if I had a cheaper alternative if I wanted pork burgers, why not? :)

The owner was at the counter. She was extremely courteous and elaborate in explaining about the 9 day old shop. Her name is May^^ She claims that all the pork patties are weighed, grilled and temperature controlled. Plus she serves the food herself too, so any bad cookie won't make it through her strict standards! Did I mention that no oil was used in cooking the pork patties? Awesome plus point for health conscious people who wants a taste of a little sin :D

The grill is ordered and imported from the USA which costs like $100k @__@ The burger bun is ordered specially from a baker with specifications of size and standards. The bun is very fluffy and fragrant with the butter spread^^ It's fresh because they only buy the buns on alternate days. I really dislike the types of mass produced burger buns that are tough and cold D: If you have been to a fast food outlet, you'll understand what I mean.

Although no oil was used in the burger, its extremely juicy. There are fresh lettuce, onions and tomatoes in the burger^^ Flavour is there, but the colour of the patty not that attractive if it were to be served on a plate by itself. I regret not getting the double patty burger now D; I bought the single patty burger set at rm9.50 which includes a root beer/coke and french fries. Pretty okay. If you compare it to Ninja Joe's it's definitely more worth it as ninja joe's prices are at rm5.50 for a very small burger + rm3.50 to top up with free drink and fries.

As for the fries, its not as starchy as the ones in Ninja Joe's. I'll prefer only ordering the ala carte and buying a corn in cup and drink from daily fresh next door whenever I dine there. This one still a little starchy but still tolerable^^

May said that if all goes well, she'll even install air conditioning and wifi.
