A time to pamper myself !!
If you are a guy, I reckon you would refrain from reading further…
I am going into something bimbo-istic now…
I heart my nail colors to be loud, especially for the feet. But never this loud before ! You may ask, do they glow in the dark then ? Hahaha… Well, not to that extent, I guess. But they are indeed very very luminous, just like those highlighter colors which I so called. Though they may not look that striking under the dim bedroom light. But well, above all that, you can just imagine the orange highlighter coated on your nails ! However, I have had not the courage to paint the nails on the hand with the same color too, for fear of being too distracting, especially at work. I am never a loud person in real life for an actual fact.
You see, I never had a permanent manicurist, as I never wish to tie myself down to any single package service. But this particular salon is offering nails service at the most reasonable price which I can never find in other places so far ! And the wide range of colors just make me spoilt for choices, especially the range of such loud colors they had !! And well, not that I am there for the first time, but the first occasion did not leave an impression on me as they were so limited in colors. But after the relocation and revamp a few units away, I am really wowed by the range of nails colors they carry !
This is not a paid post in anyway. Just something to share, if you are anywhere near Havelock Road, and wanna give the tiring feet a boost, full pedicure service is priced at an amazing $28.

Well, since the feet and hands have gotten their pampering treats, it’s time to feed the tummy with some sweet desserts too ! Guys, you can be back for further reading now ! :)
Anyway, I have been craving for some mango desserts for the longest time ever. Ever since the Mango Snow Ice @ Mei Heong Yuen Dessert that night, the thoughts of making my own mango desserts at home has been lingering in my mind.

So here come mine Mango Mousse Cups ~~
I cannot possibly replicate the same Mango Snow Ice at home since I do not have the ice shaver. So Mango Mousse seems a good substitute for it.
You can never go too wrong with any mango desserts especially when the mangoes themselves are already sweet and juicy. But the time taken to chill these desserts by each layer is way too time consuming than I could ever imagine. Each layer took almost 30-40 minutes to chill properly before I could advance into the next layer. So you can imagine how long the entire process takes…
But good stuffs are deserved to be waited upon, isn’t it… I love these sweet treats to bits. They are indeed good replicas of what I have been craving for.
It’s the first time I attempted a recipe from this All Mangoes Recipes Book ~ and well, you can be sure it never disappoints.
