Anniversary, TUDARI FOOD PORN! + Outift

Food porn & Picture spams alert! ~~~ 4 year anniversary with my boyfried, So one week ago we celebrated our anniversary. And for us (read: me) anniversary is a perfect time to quench my GLUTONOUS desire. I've been craving meat, okay... pork! so we decided to try Tudari's famous sam gyeop sal and galbi! Mwahaha...Oh ya, wait, before that I want to show you the cute/stupid animated gif I made, lolz.

Shakes what yo' mamma gave!
 I love this caramel dansen~uma uma POPOTAN dance!!! Yahahaha!

  I think he's talented guitarist. He composed three songs for me already♪

but we DO fight!

want to kick him like this when he's annoying. LOLZ

and CHOOSH CHOOSH him like diz!

Okaaay, I'm not that mean, and we are a happy couple! HAHAHA...!

Over exposured pictures, feel too lazy to edit it =p Okay! enough for that... Now time for the food porn~ hurrah~ so this is Tudari, one of my favorite Korean restaurant in pasteur, bandung. The manager is a pretty girl named Kim Kyung Sook :3

This is the interior, the wallpaper is printed with traditional Korean paintings. I love the ambience! It was pretty hot inside that day, I can't stop sweating, uh oh ... blame the grill >ㅁ< There's a large air conditioner (not the fan) on the corner though.

Naww... food is ready, a lot of banchan. this is round 1, we (read: I) ordered 삼겹살, sam gyeop sal, sam gyup sal, or whatever the revised romanization is. I've been craving this like forever OMG...

This is the raw belly pork meat, a 'bacon to be' meat. It's a thick, fatty slices of pork meat. I'm sorry PIG... but you are super delicious! I'd kill for this. Mwahaha~

The waitress help us grilled the meat. Hmmm... I can't stop drooling! Juicy Juicy Pork belly meat is being grilled along with onions and garlic. Super HOT!

The meat turns brown, by this time the meat is ready to eat. So the waitress starts to cut them off with a big scissor. I'm drooling while writing this, believe me. lolz... I'm SUPER hungry!

Ready to eat sam gyeop sal is the most delicious meat ever!

Second favorite banchan, Kimchi!

My super super SUPER favorite banchan ever, this is PA MUCHIM! Scallions and letuce salad seasoned with gochugaru, salt, sesame oil. I recently tried to make this side dish, will share the recipe later

쌈장, 기름장
And yaaay, ready to eat! the meat of the sam gyeop sal is not seasoned nor marinated, but the dipping sauce (ssamjang and gireumjang) add a 'Super Ultra Great Delicious Wonderful' delightful taste to the dish. No exaggeration here!

Ungrilled Galbi

The GALBI is being grilled. Hmmm~ it has a sweet flavour. I reckon the sweetness is delivered from the soy sauce.
This is also a banchan, well... I was like (*☉౪ ⊙。) when I saw this. Issit edible? lolz... But I have to say I LOVE this side dish! it has a FRESH flavor. I don't know the name of this banchan tho, anyone know?

 Syuuuper fresh korean version of Lemon ORANGE SQUASH! I love this drink, so refreshing!

The day after, I bought a lot of pork belly meat and kap sim, attempted to learn making homemade sam gyeop sal. Hohoho... I love cooking but I'm not really good at it >㉨< After that we headed over to a mall, bcuz I wasn't completely full, I decided to have another 'snack'.

As you might already know, I currently settled in Bandung, and this is one of my favorite traditional food. "Tahu bletok" that's the name of the dish. Sounds weird, lolz. It's supposed to be cheap though. like $5 per serving. 

Daiso polkadot scarf (Cool & Eco cooling bandana)

Here's my outfit that day, I wore lace t-shirt from my favorite brand YIDN. One of my favorite long sleeved T-shirt Wore it together with floral printed skirt that I bought recently + a short legging. The polkadot scarfcan also be used as a bandana, bougt it from Daiso. So yea, thanks for reading. I'll be back soon with my halloween party pictures. See ya girls~

Blog renewal ♥ Haul: Dolly Wink, Korea Cosmetic, Daiso USAPANDA~

Hello dollies~ I came up with the decision to eliminate the excessive pink on my blog. It's something I've been thinking for quite a while now. I recall the very first skin I've ever made was also in peach. lolz, excessive pink all year round. NG  >ㅁ< and so I had been asked about the previous template, yes I design my own templates. Every little thing of it, Every-each one of them. Also the divider, header, icon, etc (unless otherwhise stated). I've always use basecode made by official blogspot designer.

So yeah, here's the new look of my blog. Nothing special tho (^・ω・^=)~ all white, with a soft touch of pink. Reason? I'm getting bored with my old layout, so this super simple layout will be here until an unspecified time, I might go back to my old layout, like in a week, month, or so.

And so, I made this lacey banner to welcome all of you ^-^ And oh, I also changed my name to a nickname, Rindodo... HAHAHA omg, a lousy sounding nickname, but OH whatever! lolz. I'm all puffed out now >ㅅ<

So besides the renewal, I want to share a little haul with you girls.

So this is what arrived in mail yesterday! my very first Dolly Wink product~  mwahaha... I got myself dolly wink eyelashes No.1 and pencil eyeliner in brown.I know I'm super late! Okay I know that gyaru style won't suit me. But I feel like I start loving the style now, cuz I Tsubasa Masuwaka cuteness is definitely irresistible, omg ♥♥(o→ܫ←o)♫. I love this brand now.

Also received my fourth bottle of face mist from THE FACE SHOP. I currently have four bottle of face mist on my stash. The other two bottle is a toner and emulstion from NUDECOS sent to me by Korea Cosmetic cuz I won their giveaway. Happy happy nya nyaaa~♡

 Last week, I went to daiso with my BF and bought these. Straight lower eyelashes (I'm going to use this with dolly wink eyelashes), sharpener (for pencil eyeliner), polkadot cool&eco cooling bandana, which can be used as a scarf. I will show you the pic of me wearing the bandana very soon ^^ and 'GASP!' killer USAPANDA bath puff! Kyaaaaah I love love LOVE this cute panda puff! super CUTE omg~ nyahahah >ㅅ<

Review: Fanipia Mask, Luview Lemon Balm Bubble Cleansing Foam, GIVEAWAY!

Today I'll be reviewing two mask pack I received for Korea Cosmetic weeks ago (thank you), and bubble cleansing foam from Luview. I received the mask together with NUDECOS skincare set, which I haven't tried yet >.< cuz I decided to finish off my snail cream first.

First I want to introduce you to the brand, FANIPIA, this mask produced by Fanipinkorea. Co., Ltd. Actually, this is my first time experience with fanipia's beauty product ^^ Well, I received two type of mask. Collagen and Aloe vera mask pack. It contains pure aloe vera extract and collagen, they also has green tea extract and lotus flower extract. I tried the Aloe Vera first, I recall I use it the day before my graduation to make sure that my skin is supple and ready for big event on the next day, and yeah it works well!

The unique part is the (world 1st) double layered concept. I wasn't aware of this plastic at first, so I quickly removed it without paying any attentions, which is...wrong! (lucky me I got two pack!  lolz) The tissue mask is doubled with a thin plastic sheet. I did a little research about face mask and this plastic sheet things? it does makes sense. It retains the moisture and warmth during the usage, allowing the serum penetrates deep into your skin.

Experience: I immediately smelled a subtle scent when I opened the mask, the tissue pack was well drenched and there was a LOT of serum. You can massage the excessive serum to other body part later. (I swab the tissue to my neck, hands, and legs) The pack itself is a bit bigger than my face, and there was not enough cutting so I have to fold it here and there so it could stays on my face nicely.

I didn't feel and suffocating sensation or tightness after more than 20 minutes, I removed it and massage the remaining serum to my face. It leaves my skin softer and plumper. No irritation, despite it gives a gunk on my face, it doesn't break me out. Other than that, this mask has been working fine ^-^

What I like: There was a lot of serum, very moisturizing, no overwhelming scent.
The bad: This product is hard to find outside the Korea, it's not a paraben-free product.

That's for the Fanipia mask, now on to the next one~!

This is my first bubble cleanser, for over 4 years, I've never ever applied any cleanser with 'soapy' and 'foamy' formula. I was absolutely into lotion cleanser. As for the product itself, It has a mild ~and sweet scent with rich and creamy formula. The cream looks shimmery and shiny, but I believe it contains no shimmering particles. The texture is light and soft, feels like a mix of mousse and cream. Very cute!

I was horrified to see the bigger version of my skin just right after I woke up (BEFORE pic), Oh my God... pardon my oily and porous skin. It has been ridiculously hot and humid here (☉`ェ´☉)ジ look what the wheater had done to my skin. Hur hur... but the good part is that I've never had any problem with black heads on my nose. I usually wash my face as soon as I woke up, and here we go with the 'before-after' pic. So as you can see, this lemon bubble cleansing foam (I like the name, it sounds cute~) succesfully tightens my pores and makes it appear smaller.

This cleanser has been working super fine and I love this product.

What I like: make pores on my face look smaller/tighten pores, brightening, lighten acne scars or skin pigmentation, natural extract formula.
What I don't like: nothing :D

NOTE: I don't feel super confident about posting my MEGA upclose oily and porous 'just woke up' skin here, pigmentation here and therem,  but OH WELL...! lolz... I just want you to know that my skin is not flawless aaand... I have a lot of problem with my skin too >ㅁ<
