Definitely Japan. Definitely Kojie.san

When it comes to beauty products, I am L-A-Z-Y at applying them.   Give me soap, shampoo, deodorant and toothpaste and I am good to go. My parents instilled in me the concept of natural beauty which I did not mind following because it is low-maintenance and it saves me money.  Haha!

Looking back, I know it was my parents’ way of boosting my confidence that I would get the attention I wanted through my character and attitude.  Everything else is secondary. It did inflate my self-esteem. I knew there were ways to be pretty without having to exert too much effort. I think in my case, I knew I needed a lot of effort so I did what I knew best: S-M-I-L-E!

This trick worked for awhile until I reached my 30′s and I realized that I needed a boost using nature and chemistry backed by parents’ love and good genes. Still, I wanted a stress-free regimen. It must be soap which I can use when I shower. My goal was to have an even skin tone. I just found out that my active (read:clumsy) self had earned me battle scars in my body that had caused skin darkening. I knew the weapon I wanted to try.

So, why choose Kojie.san?

Kojie.san is the first kojic acid soap to be commercially available in the Philippine market.

I need to stick with the original. I know I deserve a good product. As human beings, we should never settle for anything less than the best.

Kojie.san has a micro peeling effect, which makes it a potent whitening product.

I really love my brown skin. However, I wanted even brown skin.  I do not like patches of dark spots. Who does?  Given that it is summer, I like my brown skin right now- not a shade darker and not a shade whiter. I do not know if my logic works. If I use a soap with with whitening ingredient, I cancel out the sun’s effort to darken my skin. Ha!

It does not contain any harmful chemicals.

This is something we should look for in products. If a product contains ingredients we cannot pronounce, we should try to avoid them.

It contains antioxidants and 100% all natural ingredients.

Oh, at this age, I need all the power of an anti-aging product. And look! It fits into my idea of natural beauty- natural ingredients!

Wait, did I just call myself beautiful? Well, if nobody else will, I will! LOL. They say that confidence is the ability to feel beautiful without having to rely on somebody else telling you so.  :D

Food Experiment: What to do with juicer pulp

I have friends who are into juicing. I wanted to do the same. I seldom eat vegetables. They say that if you can’t eat them, drink them.

In this experiment, I used three carrots, two cucumber and 1 apple.

It yielded this amount of juice and 2 cups of pulp.

I also tried juicing last December and I was left with pulp that I made into carrot cupcake. Since I broke my oven, I can no longer use the pulp for cupcake.  I decided to make fish balls!  I grated two strips of broiled cream dory and mixed them into the pulp. I added one egg, around 3 tablespoons of flour, salt and pepper.   I used my clean bare hands to combine everything well and started to roll them into balls.

These were deep fried and skewered on a stick.

Eating fishball is not complete without the sauce. It is not just any sauce. It must be manong’s fish ball sauce. I found the recipe here. Dig in!

The verdict:
1. My aunts love the fishball but it is a little soft. They said I need to add more flour or something to keep it firm. Bread, perhaps? Fish, perhaps? There are more carrots than fish in the recipe.
2. The sauce is a little watery. I wanted the stickier one. Maybe I should add more cornstarch or cook it longer. I think I have been simmering it for more than an hour already.

I wonder what the fishball would taste like when I start juicing ampalaya. Hehe!
