Frontera 2014 Ramadhan buffet [Food Review]

This is not my first time posting about Frontera's Ramadhan buffet. 2 years ago, I was honer to get invited by Ramesh, Frontera manager to review their buffet, the review is available HERE. 2 years a part,their Ramadhan buffet have some slight change, but the price is still same, which is RM 50++ (RM 58 nett). Plus, for every group of 8 pax, 1 dine for free (e.g. 7 pay, 1 free). If you come in groups of 30 & above you may request customised menu.

During my review, I only tested out some of the items, not all. Their menu might change periodically and might increase starter to 12 types, 6 types of dessert available. Although starter, dessert and drink (ice-lemon tea) are free-flow, you may only choose 1 main from the menu.

Come, lets see what Frontera offer in this year Ramadhan buffet.

Starter: ~free flow~

Overall, I am satisfied with this RM 50++ buffet. The variety is awesome. Even by just taking once piece each of the starter, it's enough for me to last until sahur. 

Recommeded Starters:
Taco, totilla chips with Red salsa, taquitos & Chipotle Soup
I think it's very obvious that my photo show plenty fillings in the Tacos, I don't need elaborate further. The red salsa is so rich in umami, just as nice as my last visit or maybe better! Taquitos has very solid  stuffings. It's litherally beef flakes in it, not those with extra artificial addictive. Chipotle soup may looks like a cup of innocent broth but it's actually has a slight herbs hints and will caught you by surprise if you are not a spicy lover because you will fall in love with it.

Recommeded Desserts:
During my last Ramadhan buffet review visit, the brownie is the only flaw in whole meal. It's so close to perfect. Now, it's awesome, moist and dense. Take note, if you are not a spicy food lover, because one of it's ingredient is chipotle (a type of spice) you may kena the Russian roulette of spicy chipotle seed on any bite! XD

Are you moved yet? If you wanna try it out, make sure you make a reservation first!

Transformers : Age of Extinction [Movie Review]

The 4th Transformer movie. Sequel never leave up to expectation. Plus Michael Bay's repetitive style. Sigh... story line can only

Massive earthquake in human cast:
Mark Wahlberg as Cade Yeager (left), Nicola Peltz as Tessa Yeager (middle), Jack Reynor as Shane Dyson (right)
No more cutie Shia LaBeouf (Sam Witwicky), sexy bitch Megan Fox (Mikaela Banes) nor Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (Carly Spencer).

Another human cast that I was surprised is

Steve Job looks-a-like Stanley Tucci as Joshua Joyce. A little history check on his career, he is also Caesar Flickerman in Hunger Games.

Dinobots are first introduce in Transfer movies. I thought they will have more interaction with other transformers but their air time is very limited. I didn't even manage to learn their names are their are gone.

Overall, only 1 Malay word can describe the story line: Rojak. They tried to put everything in a single movie w/o giving proper explanation. There are sufficient of action scene (from my POV) but the story doesn't make scene, lots of plot holes and non convincing ending. It's such a shame that these amazing 3D and CG is only accessories by this kind of plot.

Spoiler Alert:

Galvatron is Megatron. He survived, AGAIN!

The junk truck is Optimus Prime, duh....

Overall: 6/10 [I know the hype is not too much, not really a must watch, only mediocre.]
3D/CG: 9.5/10 [Yes, CG is very impressive. I know CG critique will not agree with me, but I think it's more than decent.]
Story: 4/10 [Sigh...]
Cast: 9/10 [No comment, Nicola Peltz is just a beautiful vas.]

Laser or not to Laser [Part 2] A Roller Coasters Ride

DSC_0870 copy
From I first started laser to now the ongoing treatment, it's like a roller coasters. There are days that seems bad and there are good face day too. This is my face before I has any laser session. My 1st trail session is available here: Laser or not to Laser [Part 1]

On my 2nd visit to Mediviron UOA clinic, the Dr. use both Co2 and tonning laser for my face.

The Co2 laser is same as the one I had trail session earlier on back on my ear and neck.

IMAG4766 copy
While the tonning laser on my whole face.

The result is just like basil seeds.

IMAG4780 copy
On the day I undergo treatment, scab forms.

With the help of hydrocortisone, after all the scab falls off, the result is fascinating.

After my first treatment, the freckles are mostly lighten. There are still some spot that the Dr. miss (circle in red), so I go for a second visit.

On my 2nd visit, I consult Dr. on my reappearing spot. She ensure me it's fine and it can be remove is a few follow ups. The Dr. also prescribe a lightening cream to use twice a day.

The area undergo laser was swollen, but because my spot was lighter, so no significant basil seed effect like last time.

IMAG5182 copy
After the scab fall off, there are still some suborn spot remains.My skin become very sensitive and rashes follows me for weeks

IMAG5277 copy2
Those spot developed and grow higher than the skin surface and form a mole like substance :(

On my 4th visit, I voice out my concern on the mole like substance. The Dr. ensure me again it's a small problem because it's a new mole. The mole is cause by the Co2 laser. When the laser penetrate into the skin layer, it act like a pseudo traumatize agent to trigger self heal, and some time the pigment are also formed.

So she use the same laser for mole removal to extract these bits and a few more Co2 zap behind the ears to remove some reappear pigments.Then later, use a tonning laser for the remaining area of my face.

IMAG5301 copy
Unlike the last session, my face flashed red immediately and the are holes on the mole like area.

IMAG5300 copy

IMAG5473 copy
Until now, there are still some pigmentation remains on the back on my ear.

IMAG5476 copy
My face become very sensitive and remains red almost all of the time. I know the mole's scar are going to take some time to heal, but my pores on this area become so big appear to be black. This worries me. My pigmentation might be fairer a bit but it cause my skin to be more sensitive. With the Dr advise and judgement on the condition, I think my skin sensitivity was minimized during the whole treatment. My dermatologist has verified my skin to be dry and super sensitive, but with Dr's help I was able reduce my pigmentation and at the same time control my over sensitive skin. Although the pigmentation was not 100% remove at the moment, I still satisfy with the result, afterall not everyone's skin condition is the same. If you are interested in a laser treatment, do consult a profession aesthetic Dr. like the one I saw in Mediviron UOA clinic.
