Where to eat on the way to Dalat?

We ended 2017 with a road trip to Dalat to celebrate the start of the year 2018. Kinda weird writing that sentence.

So anyhoo, it’s not our first trip to Dalat but we’ve always been clueless as to where we should stop by for lunch on our way up the mountain.

Before, we’d stop by Tam Chau Restaurant. But honestly, the food isn’t that good there. It’s just that it’s huge and can accommodate the influx of travelers, plus there are toilets.

Fortunately, our driver stopped at Com Nieu Thuan Thanh. The food is good and affordable. We paid around 22 USD for a group of 6 adults and 4 kids.

We had lunch around 11 am and the place wasn’t filled up yet. Thirty minutes later and the hungry crowd started trickling in.

And their specialty? Heo Quay or Crispy Pork. One order costs 4 USD. Not bad.

There are 2 locations:

86 Ly Tu Trong, Phuong 2, TP Bao Loc, Lam Dong
971 Tran Phu, TP Bao Loc, Lam Dong

And yes, their toilets are clean too. 😉

Food Trip: Kingscross

 photo 20171203_091600_zps1pqno2xg.jpg

A couple of weeks ago when I brought my son to American Eye Center in Crescent Plaza for check up, we saw that a new restaurant just opened, Kingscross.

Honestly, we’ve been really sad that NYDC has closed in this area that we’ve been in the search for a weekend breakfast place. We love the Crescent area coz it’s near enough for us to ride our bikes to with the kids.

If you follow JK Rowling’s Harry Potter series, you’d know that King’s Cross Station Platform 9 3/4 is where the train to Hogwarts departs.

So it’s not at all surprising to see Gryffindor on their menu.

The price is just as what you would expect in this area but the food is the up and up too.

Food perfectly worthy of an Instagram post. Haha.

Should you go? I know I would definitely come back.

PSK Christmas Promo

I can’t recommend enough the use of Essential Oils and how it has helped in the overall wellness of our family. I really started out as a skeptic and even in my oily journey, I really check, double-check things because I don’t want to just jump in the bandwagon blindfolded.

If you do decide to try essential oils and you’re confused (I know I was in the beginning), do drop me a message or an email. Let’s chat. It took me a year to commit to YL EO so am quite patient. Haha.

If you do decide, am giving away a DIFFUSER NECKLACE for every PSK ordered. To order, click on: http://bit.ly/Lyraliza

I don’t think I’ve shared my diffuser necklaces here, so here’s a couple.



PSKs are a great way to start your oily journey and am sure you’ll find great ways to use them.

Mini Oily Guru Workshop

 photo 20171129_112016_zpsw88wbqxi.jpg

A couple of weeks ago, I co-hosted an Essential Oils 101 and Mini Oily Guru Workshop, together with my good friend Ruth. Ruth opened her home to seven awesome ladies who wanted to learn a bit more about why we rave so much about Young Living Essential Oils.

After giving a short background about essentials oils and how we can benefit from them, we proceeded with the workshop wherein the ladies were able to make their own blends, hand sanitizer, keychain diffuser, and yes, even aromatherapy bracelets. It was so much fun that we ended over 2 hours later.
Ruth by the way baked yummy vanilla cupcakes infused with Lavender Vitality essential oil.

Check out our snaps below and if you’re interested, I’d love to talk to you more about essential oils. 
