Gwen food || Vvaffle @ The School - Jaya One

Yesterday night, we decided to go to Jaya One Boat Noodle for dinner and after that we wanted to have some dinner. (Trust me; Boat Noodle is NOT the place to go if you want to eat till you are full) 

Milkshake which was just two shops down was closed so Carol googled another placed called Vvwaffle which was at Jaya One as well, just one floor above Boat Noodle. 



Took us quite a while to find the place. But spot this logo and that's the place. :D 



Unfortunately, when we arrived there at 9.30pm, there were already CLOSED. Carol again gave her puppy face and then they were nice enough to give us one for free :D (I think they were using up the leftovers for their own, but decided to give us since we were upset that they were closing up) How nice for them!! Thumbs up! #pointsgiven


So I decided to ask them a few questions and turns out, they are 3 weeks old!!! Or should I say 3 weeks new. :D

Check out the design below the counter hand-painted! 





So, what do I think of it? 

Service wise #winliaoloh giving us the final last free waffle which was their own. 

Taste wise #nottoobad . One of the Owner Jun, apparently took 2 years to experiment, test and trial before he came up with his final recipe/idea. Waffle from fermented brioche dough. 




Check out their yummy waffles!! And yes, they do have marshmallows as sides too! With drinks and coffee to order too. 

Their waffles ranges from sweet to savoury. So depending on your individual liking, you may decide for your own. Belgian waffles with Belgian chocolates, all i can say is #yummy 

(Real photo taken!! This was the piece she made for us. looks so yummy right!!! we have the savoury one, garlic butter. Too bad we didn't get to try the sweet one. But I personally don't like savoury waffle or pancake. but this one is niece :D )




The downside is that they close at 8.30pm. So if you are thinking of an after dinner dessert, unless your dinner starts at 5 or 6pm nearby, you might be able to make it to the last call. And if you are early, they open at 11.30am. 






Located at 
Level P1, The School Complex, Jaya One, Jln University, Petaling Jaya.  (Right above Boat Noodle)

How I cured my itchy scalp and dandruff

We have always had this issue. Oily scalp, itchy scalp, or even falky scalp. Some of the days it may be dry and flaky, and whenever we wear black tops, it is embarassing because it looks as if it's snowing on us. We've seen the ads on clear or Heads & shoulders. We have even tried all sorts of brands and type of anti-dandruff shampoos. Then the only thing to seem to work is Selsun Blue but it doesn't cure it still.

I've tried just about every brand from sunsulk to heads&shoulders to redken, loreal and even to high ranges brand. I.T D.O.E.S.N.T W.O.R.K 


Most of us has got it, it's just how bad it is. Firstly, let me tell you my hair condition; 

  • Damaged caused by bleaching
  • When scalp is oily, it's crusty
  • When scalp is dry, it's flaky
  • When scalp is oily, hair is flat
  • When scalp is dry, hair is fluffy 
  • Split ends
  • curly ad frizzy

And the list goes on. 


Many people think that dandruff is cause by dry scalp but it's not all that true. Our scalp is actually covered by  some fungus called malassezia globosa that grows on oil. SO! If you don't wash your hair, they absorb your oil, and dandruff will start to show. So now you're thinking "This is why you should wash your hair everyday" right? 

Products from anti-dandruff shampoo usually contains ingredients such as zinc, sulfate, menthol, coal tar, Salicylic Acid and so on so forth. But that only washes it off and fix your temporary issue. Then it comes back again. It took me a reaalllllly long time and a really itchy scalp to find out how do i cure my head. 

Then I thought about it, back in those days, when I used to use baby shampoo. I did not have this issue!! So i went to Guardian and bought a small bottle of baby shampoo and YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE ME!!!  


THE ITCH STOPPED 
THE FLAKES STOPPED
THE DANDRUFF GONE

My hair was voluminous and perfect. (even with the damage ends). The thing is that many of us tried so hard to try to fix it with all the chemicals, we forget to go BACK TO THE BASCIS. Anti-dandruff or even hair loss products contains a lot of chemicals that doesn't suit everyone and ESPECIALLY people with sensitive skin will react to it. Sometimes, certain product may seem alright in the beginning but then later on that is when it all flares up. High chemical products tend to strip off your natural oils and your ph balance will not be balance.

There are two ways to do it. Organic products or Baby products. So it's all up to you, both are chemical-free, sulfate-free, paraben-free and chemical-free (most importantly)

They are gentle but yet strong enough to clean away the grease. Baby products are not JUST meant for them, adults may use them too. But adults products can't be used on baby because of all the other chemicals. Sometimes we forget that why can it work on a baby and it cannot work on us? Well, actually it does. The

I am proud to say that I am on the path to a better scalp now, it has been a month, and my scalp has never felt better in YEARS!

So give it a try and there's no harm. :)
