Green Leaf Cafe

I have been so excited about the food at Green Leaf Cafe after reading Helen’s blog. Before visiting Green Leaf Cafe, I have already heard many great reviews about it from my friends. This week, I finally have chance to visit this restaurant!

  • Address: 9604 Cameron St, Burnaby (It takes about 10 to 12 minutes driving from SFU burnaby campus)
  • Google Review: 4.4 out of 5 (Pretty high and I wasn’t disappointed at this rate!)

Today, I will share with you guys what I ordered. It was a lunch for two

Appetizer: “Osaka Style” Takoyaki

  • I really like the sauce on the top! It’s not too strong but it balances out the richness of the takoyaki itself!

Soup: Seafood Spicy Miso Nabe

Seafood Spicy Miso + OMG
  • It has lots of seafood inside the soup. Although it says it’s spicy on the menu, I personally think that the level of spiciness is acceptable!

Fresh Oshi: Mango Scallop Oshi

Oshi: Fresh Mango Scallop + Salmon
  • Mmmhhh… I personally think this was the only that I don’t really like. The sauce on the top was a little too rich and the flavour of this oshi is a little bit boring. I think I will try other fresh oshi next time!!

Aburi Oshi: Salmon Oshi

  • I really love this one!! This salmon oshi seems pretty classic; yet, it is the first time for me to have oshi with the real jalapeno. The little piece of jalapeno on the top of the oshi balances out the richness of the salmon oil. I really recommend you guys to order this if you haven’t tried it before!

Pasta: “Mentaiko” Creamy Linguine

Mentaiko Pasta
  • Like it’s named on the menu, it is really CREAMY which I really like it! However, the only thing I would say is that the shrimps don’t have much flavour. If the shrimps taste more salty, it will be perfect!

Gimbab: OMG

My Oh, My God “OMG”
  • “OMG” was the first word that came out of my mouth when I saw the plate lol. It’s really big and looks tasty! I think it is similar to deep fried california roll but it combines with salmon inside the roll.

These were all I have ordered for my first time Green Leaf Cafe.

Overall, I would rate them 4.2 out of 5. I not only enjoy their food and but also the decorations inside the restaurant. Definitely, I will visit it again!!

Thank you guys for reading, please feel free to share your favourite sushi place with me!

My favourite makeup remover

No matter I put on makeup or not, I use makeup remover to clean my face before using the cleansers everyday. Personally, I think this step is really important to make sure that there is no dust on my face. Today, I will share my favourite makeup remover- cleansing water and cleansing oil with you guys. Usually, I use cleansing water when I don’t have my eyelash extensions; if not, I use the cleansing oil (I heard that the cleansing oil is better on removing dust compare to the cleansing water).

Bioderma Sensibio H2O

  • Bioderma has made the cleansing water for different type of skin, you guys can check it out on its website! Also, sometimes Shoppers Drug Store has a pretty good deal-I believe it’s 2 for $30 (approximately) for Bioderma! Give it a try if you are interested in trying this product!

Bobbi Brown soothing cleansing oil

I know there are many different choices for the makeup remover in the market nowadays; however, Bioderma and Bobbi Brown are recently my top ones!! If you guys have other suggestions for the makeup remover, please share with me! I would love to hear it!! ❤

My Recent Favourite “Skin Moisturized” Products

“Women are made by water.”

I really agree to this famous Chinese quote that is spread through so many generations. Therefore, I decide to share my recent favourites daily products that I use to keep my skin hydrated with you guys!

Usually, I categorized my “skin” into three parts- lip, hads and the whole body. As I mentioned in the previous posts, I have oily face-skin type; however, other than my face, the other parts of my skin are very dry. In this circumstance, myself extremely care about “hydrating” my skins everyday after showering or before going to bed.

So, let me share with you guys what I usually apply to my skins!

  1. Vaseline Intensive Care Dry Skin Repair Lotion
Vaseline Body Lotion
  • I really love the smell and texture of this product. It doesn’t have the strong smell and it is super hydrating. When I apply it on my skin, it doesn’t feel thick or oily at all. I really recommend this lotion to you guys if you also have the sry skin!! Also, I usually buy it from Costco, it has 3 bottles in a set and only costs 8.99 CAD. (Why not buying it with this SUPER HIGH CP value???!)

2. Gabrielle Chanel Moisturizing Body Lotion

Chanel Body Lotion
  • This lotion I personally think that it is a little expensive. I received this product  from my friend for my birthday. Although the price might be the reason that people dislike it, actually I personally really like it. The texture is very light and it has the very acceptable “girly smell.” If you guys think the price is affordable, give it a try!

3. L’occitane Shea Butter Intensive Hand Balm

L’occitane Hand Care
  • As you can see, it contains 25% of Shea butter in this hand cream which really moisturized my hands. Especially, Vancouver has dry winter, I can’t live without this hand cream. Some people would think it is too thick for them, I would suggest to apply this product every night before going to the bed if you feel uncomfortable with the oily texture!

4. Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask

Laneige Lip Mask
  • I have to admit that I have a bad personal habit. That is, I like to pear off the dead (outer) skin (bark) on my lip. With this bad habit, my lip sometimes will slip and bleed for a bit. Therefore, I have to put on this lip sleeping mask before I go to bed every night to keep my lip hydrated. It’s the berry flavour (not the strong one tho!) and I personally really love it!!!
