Recipe: Simple Baked Salmon with Lemon and Rosemary

Wanting a simple meal with loves one during busy day at home can be difficult when everyone seems to be so busy with their works, activities and own social life.

Here I'm going to share a recipe which I've improvised a little bit here and there to suit my need. For a newbie like me, I've never cook a salmon at all, but I find this recipe is so easy and hassle free.

-grated black pepper (quantity -personal preferrences)
-grated salt (1.5 tsp)
-2-3 cloves of chopped garlic
-fresh rosemary
-few dust of dried parsley
-2 salmons fillet
-1.5 medium size lemon
-olive oil
(note: recipes for 2 pax)

How to:
1. Wash the fillets with running water till it is clean
2. Dry on a paper towel, rub on some sea salt on both side and leave aside
3. Using a pyrex plate, places some lemon slices and whole rosemary (with the stems) on the bottom.
4. Grate some black pepper and place the fillet on top. Drizzle some olive oil (note: no need too much, a little will do). Salmon is rich with omega3, good for hearth and improves cholesterol. Olive oil is added on to improves the whole texture making it smoother and more tender.
5. Place some lemon slices on top of the fillets with some rosemary leaves. Squeeze some fresh lemon juice and some lemon rind.
6. Preheat the oven for 10mins at (400degrees/ 200-210 Celcius) every oven is different.
Wrap with an aluminum foil and place it into the oven, bake for 15-20mins. I prefer using a clear pyrex plate because you can see clearly what is going on with the fish (good for newbie like me)
7. Once it is cooked, serves alone or with some other side dishes.

I am baking some easy chad potatoes.
1. Boil potatoes till soft.
2. Dried on paper towel, cut into 4pieces for each potatoes
3. Drizzle some olive oil, grate some black pepper and add some rosemary, baked for 15mins. If you prefer a crispy outer layer baked for longer period.

Cooking is fun, don't worry if you made mistake, just learn from it and move on. I'm not the best cook, but I enjoy the cooking process a lot, is very enjoyable and satiety.

Enjoy and have fun trying!
Good luck !

Review: Milani Liquid Eye Liner Pencil

I know, I know... I'm so late for the hype but the Milana Liquid Eye liner pencil is amazing.
Since it has been in the market for some times, I'm not going to talk a lot like an old nanny, blabbering non stop.

Straight forward, the texture is so creamy, an it feels buttery soft and smooth. Sometimes eyeliner can be a little bit torturing when it becomes hard and scratchy, the eyelid hurts a lot.
I got black and brown eye liner pencil and honestly, I'm not a huge fan with pencil liner, liquid nor gel liner. I just use whatever I have and if I couldn't find one, it is alright, not a big deal, after all I still can leave my house without any of them.

I'm really happy with my purchase because it is so affordable and works nicely. It lasts almost 6-8hours on my eyelids (quite oily at certain time). It stays on for a real good time and it doesn't smudge.

However, since it is so creamy, it is quite hard to do a perfect cat eyes/ any wink at the end of the eye. The products melts (buttery smooth) once it contacts with my body heat, so I do have to use a little eye liner brush to tidy the eyeliner look (for a real cat eye look), but nonetheless, it is a great product.
No problem for a quick liner just glides on like a dream.

Last but not least, it is a great product and I will definitely repurchase it. Personally I prefer brown as the pigmentation is really intense, for a day to day look, I prefer the brown color more than black.
