Popcorn Homemade - Easy and Fast To Make

Popcorn Homemade


I never thought that I'm going to make popcorn in my life because I usually have to buy it or eat it only if I watch movies on the cinema. But not for now because I can make it by myself that are way better than the popcorn that sells on the market and the fact that I can get more and more popcorn without spending more of my money is great, okay!

A few days ago, my little brother asking me to make a popcorn again since we already have some of the popcorn kernels left. I just said 'yes' but hold it for a while to find the best time to make it. I guess today is the day. Without further a due, let's get started!

What you will need:
  • Pan with lids (the bigger the better)
  • Ladle
  • A cup of popcorn kernels
  • 4 spoons of butter or margarine
  • 5-8 spoons of sugar

Popcorn Homemade


Steps:

Popcorn

1. Heat your pan and add two spoons of butter.

2. Once your butter melts, add a cup of popcorn kernels and stir lightly to make sure that the butter and popcorn kernels are well mixed. Next, close the pan with the lid and wait for about 7-10 minutes for the popcorn kernels to pop. Please make sure that the heat remains lower and stir a bit so that it won't be burnt at the bottom.

3. Take out the cooked popcorn and put it aside.


Caramel

1. Using the same pan that you used before with a lower heat, add sugar and don't forget to stir while waiting for the sugar to melt. Be careful while doing this as melting sugar can burn yourself.

2. Once the sugar melts and turns to yellowish/golden colour, add another two spoons of butter and stir the two ingredients together slowly.

3. Last but not least, turn off the heat and pour the popcorns that we cooked earlier to the pan. Don't forget to stir it into the caramel until it mixed together.

4. Let it cool for a while and it's ready to eat!


Popcorn Homemade


Easy, right? Usually, when we bought popcorn from outside, the amount is not that much and some of the popcorn are not even be caramelized. So sad. We paid for a plain popcorn? Hmm. The best thing about made it by yourself is, you can save your money and get more than what you have paid. Am I right? 😊

Unboxing + Review : Nivea Face Care Make Up Clear Radiant Skin Brush Set

During Lazada 5th Birthday Sale, I was scrolling through the website finding something to buy for myself. Not going to lie, I have so many products that I want to buy like makeup, beauty products, makeup brushes, bags and more. But none of them caught my heart.  So, I didn't buy anything during the sale.

A few days later, I went back to Lazada's website and finding something to pick again. Then I decided to choose this set and add it to my cart. I didn't straightly checkout my cart because I want to wait if I have any other things to buy. Since I was using my phone at that time, I got easily distracted by the social medias and I totally forgot about my cart. And guess what happened next? The price from RM29.95 went up to RM59.95! That's no way I'm going to spend my money with that price when I can get the same product for the lowest price. Right? Then I closed the window with frustrated and regret feelings during that time.

To shorten up my stories, I went back to Lazada's website again the next few days and I got a good news. The price went back to RM 29.95 and I immediately check out my purchase right away. Only God knows how excited I'm to received this item. For your information too, I already received it on last Monday and let's do some unboxing and review.

As you open up the box, you will get four products;
  • Nivea Extra White Makeup Clear 3 in 1 Cleansing Water 
  • Nivea Extra White Makeup Clear 3 in 1 Foam 
  • Nivea Extra White Makeup Starter 3 in 1 Whitening Mask 
  • Nivea Advanced Electric Facial Cleansing Brush 


Step 1: Nivea Extra White Makeup Clear 3 in 1 Cleansing Water


This cleansing water does a good job removing my makeup. It is similar to my Garnier Micellar Water and I can't find any different between those two. It just that, normally I will need at least two cotton pads to remove all my makeup including BB cream, powder, eyeshadow, mascara, blusher, lipstick and brow products. But not with this Nivea Cleansing Water because with one cotton pad, it removes almost everything on my face without me trying so hard to remove it. One thing that I noticed was this cleansing water sting your eyes a bit. So do avoid or careful when it comes to your eyes area.  


Step 2: Nivea Extra White Makeup Clear 3 in 1 Foam


For your information, I'm not using a makeup cleanser for a long time now. For me, my double cleansing term is, removing my makeup and wash my face with my daily facial cleanser. That should be enough, right? Because I don't see any point of using makeup cleanser while it works the same as your facial cleanser. The product itself has a nice subtle scent and foaming a bit. But I think because of the cleansing water already did a good job, that might be one of the reasons why this cleanser didn't give me so much different to my skin except my skin become a bit brighter and smooth. 


Nivea Advanced Electric Facial Cleansing Brush


This is the main reason why I want this set so much. This brush machine works the best with the makeup cleanser. I used both of the brush, it still works the best. For the silicone brush, I use it for my daily cleanser while the other one I using it when I wearing a makeup because it will deep clean and removes the remaining that I have on my face. So far so good. I really really love the brush. It makes my skincare routine easier and less time-consuming.  


Step 3: Nivea Extra White Makeup Starter 3 in 1 Whitening Mask


I haven't get the chance to try the mask yet but I'm looking forward to using it. Hopefully, it will work well on my skin. I think I saw this line (Makeup Starter) in the tube version. I don't think I saw it anymore on the drugstores.



As a conclusion, I really really love this set. It has all I need. I would like to recommend you guys to try it if you're interested. It's totally worth the money, trust me. I think that's all I have for now. Thank you for stopping by. Have a nice weekend with your loved one.

Have you ever tried any of this set?

Gfriend is Back! (The Awakening)

Gfriend

I think it's kind of habit to update about Gfriend every time they are having a new comeback. I know it kind of late but better late than never, right? Gfriend is back, guys! The waiting for months was totally worth it as they are back with a 4th mini album titled, 'The Awakening' on last March 6, 2017. As a Buddy (Gfriend's fan name), I looking forward to this as this comeback because of the new concept from cute and innocent to girl crush. A lot of changes I can say. Most of them, change their hair colours and SinB with a long hair. They are so pretty day by day when their outfit and style matches their new concept.

As a Buddy itself, of course, I already added the album to my playlist, listening to the songs and watching their stage performances from time to time. All of the songs in this album are my favourite but the songs I like the most are Hear The Wind Sing, FINGERTIP, Contrail, Please Save My Earth and Rain in the Spring Time.

Gfriend - The Awakening Track List


I don't know why but I feel bad for them for this comeback because they only won once on music shows chart so far. It may take some time for people to be familiar with their new concept changes, right? It also seems like it is hard for them to compete with the other groups too but still, I wish them the best because I know they can do it. Even if they didn't win on the music show charts but they already win in my heart. And I know they can do it, better than before in the future. Good luck, Gfriend!
