Food: Pablo Matcha & Chocolate Cheesetart @ 1 Utama

Introducing the Freshly Baked Matcha Cheese Tart with Shiratama & Azuki (RM 49.90) and the Freshly Baked Chocolate Cheese Tart (RM 49.90)!

This is best served cold where the filling is creamy and the crust is crispy.

I like the chewy texture of the shiratama (white mochi) coupled with the creamy texture of the cheese tart. 

For those who love red beans, this cheese tart is the one to go for!

For chocolate lovers who are craving for chocolate, I suggest you try this for that chocolate fix you need. This is extremely rich, so all you need is a small piece.

Savour this addictive sweet delight with a cup of tea :)

Daily: K Gloss Treatment Review @ Frank Salon, Nexus Bangsar South

I actually really like my current hairstyle with the Korean see through bangs I've always wanted. But, the problem for me now, is that my baby hair is starting to grow out and there are small little annoying curls at the side of my fringe which I absolutely loathe. My hair is also starting to get a little frizzy, despite it being really straight. My hair needs some pampering and some proper hair care before it gets any more drier that it is at the moment. 

I discovered Frank Salon @ Nexus Bangsar South and I have heard before that it was a good place to sought some advice and get some treatment done for my hair.

The spacious sitting and waiting area at the salon

Some of the wide variation of products the salon uses for hair services


Here's the picture of the product they will use on my hair for the treatment. 

K-Gloss is a new concept of hair care from New York and it is a hair treatment suitable for those with frizzy unmanageable hair. It works on all hair types and moisturises the hair up to three times. Best part is the treatment may last up to 3 months if you maintain your hair by using a sodium free shampoo.

There is both keratin and collagen in this product to seal back all those hair cuticles which were damaged from chemical services.

The charges for the treatment is RM 95 for every 10 ml of product used. Mine was up to 50 ml for the length of my hair.


Yes, my hair is in dire need of proper moisture again!

First of all, Sam washed my hair with a clarifying shampoo using the double cleanse method.

Then, its blow dry time till my hair is 90% dry before application of the product. 

A suitable amount of product was applied all over my hair and combed through for approximately 30 minutes.

Without washing off the product, the hair is flat iron at least up to six times to ensure that it is straight and all the hair cuticles is sealed back.

VOILA! The end product of my hair after K-Gloss Treatment. 

I was very happy with the result of the treatment as it made my hair shiny, healthy looking and smooth.


Aren't you envious of my sleek straight healthy hair? :)

Thank you Frankie & team for the  professional hair treatment session at Frank Salon. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone whose hair is in need of some moisture treatment.

Daily: Pablo Baked Cheese Tart Has Finally Arrived in Malaysian Shores @ 1 Utama

Cheese tart has been all the rage in Malaysia recently. With all the outlets popping up like mushrooms and selling like hotcakes, there is another brand who have just joined the line. Pablo is no foreign name, it is an established brand of its own all the way from Japan. In fact, many of my friends have already mentioned the name to me, at least once or twice previously. 

Hearing the news that they've just landed in Malaysia gets me excited! Well, as a matter of fact, cheese tarts are heavenly comfort food which can brighten up anyone's day. Pablo is famous for their giant cheese tart which has been the talk of the town ever since they arrived here last weekend. 

 Here's the whole collection of items which we got to try out during the opening launch last weekend. This covers mostly the products which are available in Pablo.

Pablo Giant Cheese tart (RM 46.90)

The creaminess of the soft cream cheese is absolutely delectable! It isn't gooey in texture, neither is it too watery like a lava. For me, it was just a nice, spongy and fluffy consistency with the flaky pastry on the outside. The top layer was smooth like gelatin and had their signature logo on it. 

You can slice the tart into 5 pieces if you cut similarly as shown in the photo above. What I liked most about this tart is, despite how gigantic it looks, it isn't actually filling at all. In fact, its light and not too cheesy, so you can have it even after a heavy meal!

Pablo Mini (RM 8.90)

Out of all the cheese tarts I've tried previously, this one really gave me the satisfaction a cheese tart should provide. The Mini tarts are baked and air flown all the way from Japan. They just reheat the frozen tarts when they arrive in Malaysia.

The texture of the cheese filling is similar to what a paste would be like, which is easier to consume in my opinion. One thing I don't fancy about cheese tarts is that some other brands make them too liquid like and it gets really messy when you try to bite into it.

Pablo Mini is perfect, their tarts are very consumer friendly, I would say. You don't need to worry that it might drip all over your outfit or smudge your lipstick :)

Pablo Frute - Classic Cheese Tart flavour (RM 15.90)

Fancy drinking your cheese tarts? Pablo invented the first cheese tart drink and I'm so happy to be one of the first to try it out. The thought of drinking cheese was rather peculiar initially, but after taking a sip, I guarantee you can't stop. 

The taste was a little bit like a banana shake with cream. It was sourish but refreshing at the same time. Your taste buds are in for a good treat!

Pablo Choco Crunch - Cheese Tart Flavour (RM 47.90)

This crunchy cheese tart snacks come in 12 pieces in each box. 

To me, this is pretty much similar to muesli, except that this wasn't as gooey as those muesli bars.

 Pablo Sabrel Cheese (RM 32.90)

This biscuit is known as sabrel and its a famous product in Japan. If you ever visit Japan, this is a souvenir you will definitely have to purchase to complete your trip. Pablo now makes them in different flavours, but with cheese as its main focus of course.

They have it in white (parmesan cheese & Gouda cheese cream), black (black truffle and cheese) and green (Matcha and cream cheese).

Check out Pablo today at their outlet in 1 Utama or head to their social media for the latest info about some cheesy goodness!
