After so many days of CNY feasting, I was very lucky that Sen'se by De Belle invited me over to try its Signature Slimming Treatment.

The salon is located at 14 Scotts Road, #02-02 Far East Plaza.  Very convenient for customers.  You can either take public transport via MRT or buses.  If you drive, there is ample parking at Far East Plaza or the nearby shopping centres.

This was the lovely sight that greeted me when I stepped into the salon.

Let's take a look at the treatment room.  This room contained the slimming machine which would be used on me.  I loved how the room was decorated with the feminine lacy curtains and flowery wall paper.

This is another of their treatment room... bright and cheery.

See... I have grown some 'meat' during CNY so just nice... time for a slimming session.

Getting ready for the Signature Slimming Treatment by changing out of my clothes.  The therapist assured me that there is no or minimal pain hence I could rest my mind and heart at ease.

Firstly, the therapist applied this slimming solution onto the areas which I wanted to slim down, namely my love handles and my tummy.

The treatment is safe and non invasive, so customers do not need to worry about any downtime.

The machine works in this way, using a four step method:

First step is Cavitation which means it works to burst the fat cells
Second step is using R.F to burn the fat cells
Third step is using Laser to dissolve the fat cells
Forth step is to use Vacuum to drain and firm the skin

After the treatment, it was time to take a photo with the therapist who patiently explained the steps to me.

The other therapist who was working on that day too.

Let's take a look at a before and after photo of myself or rather my waist portion.  The top photo was taken before I did the Signature Slimming Treatment and the bottom photo was taken after the treatment.  Can you see the difference?  I was surprised that results could be seen immediately for my case.  The therapist said that I needed to drink more water than usual to allow more fats to be passed out of my body through waste matters.

So amazing!

In order to see even better results, it is recommended to do the Signature Slimming Treatment more than once.

Sen'se by De Belle came up with a package for Post Chinese New Year Slimming Special to help ladies like me slim down after feasting on too much goodies... lol.

14 Jan 2016 was the first time I tried Fugu Fish or commonly known as Puffer Fish.  For those who do not know, fugu fish is considered an expensive delicacy but yet one of the most dangerous fish to eat due to the toxins in the fish.

The intestines, ovaries and liver of fugu fish contain a poison called tetrodotoxin, which is 1,200 times deadlier than cyanide. The toxin is so potent that a lethal dose is smaller than the head of a pin, and a single fish has enough poison to kill 30 people. 

Eating fugu fish is basically a gamble with lifestyle, luxury and death.  Because of the high risk involved in preparing fugu fish for safe consumption, chefs must undergo many years of training to obtain a fugu-preparing license, and such expertise raises the price of a fugu dish.

Thanks to FUKU fine Fugu Kaiseki Restaurant for the kind invite to try out their signature fugu dishes.  The FUGU set courses starts from a whopping S$150/person.  It was indeed a fine dining experience prepared with one of the most luxurious yet exciting fish-Fugu.

Want to see how a cute version of the fugu fish looks like?  See below.  The restaurant has made the dried up version of the puffer fish into a decoration.  So cute and interesting!

A kiss for the cute puffer fish!  Look at the tiny pricks or spikes on the body.  When the fugu fish senses any danger, it will puff up and the pricks or spikes become more prominent to scare off bigger fishes who might want to eat up the fugu fish.

This is another type of fugu fish with even more prominent spikes.  Woah... my goosebumps came up by just looking at this picture.

One of the dishes served was this boiled fugu fish meat.  So excited to test it out for the first time!

Some of the condiments to go with the fugu meat.

Next up was the thinly sliced fugu sashimi.  It had a mild sweetness to it. 

Mr Koji Tuskamoto, executive chef advised on how to eat the sashimi so that it tasted even better.  Basically, you should wrap the baby leeks with the sashimi and top it up with condiments and dip in ponzu sauce.

This gotta be one of my favourite dishes-deep fried fugu fish!  The fish was crispy on the outside and the meat was so tender on the inside.  It was done in temporal style but the meat around the bones were extremely sweet.

It just went so well with the lime and salt.

Taking a look at the raw fugu fish meat which would be used for the steamboat later on.

This is fugu fish imported from Japan.  The toxins were already removed hence it was safe for consumption in Singapore.

The executive chef, Mr Koji Tsukamoto, slicing the fugu fish meat into thin slices.

 The fugu fish steamboat for the night.

 The executive chef cooked the steamboat by placing different parts of the fugu fish into the boiling stock strategically.

Boil soup boil!

 Japanese are particular about the presentation of the food hence care is taken to put in the rest of the food ingredient properly so that the steamboat could look and taste good.

Just looked at this lovely pot of fugu fish steamboat!  It was light yet nutritious with green vegetables, mushrooms, carrots and much more.

Mr Koji, the Executive Chef in action!

 After eating up most of the ingredients in the steamboat, there were still some soup left.  Mr Koji cooked egg porridge with the remaining soup and wow... the porridge tasted amazing!  Initially I thought that the porridge would taste like the fugu fish steamboat soup since that was the soup base for the porridge but interestingly, the porridge took on its own unique flavour.

I loved having the porridge with the japanese pickles.

FUKU Fine Fugu Kaiseki Restaurant has two separate rooms for booking, if you want quiet time for business entertainment, discussions or family time with loved ones or catching up with friends.

This is the dining hall for which is very cozy too.

Just look at the display of Japanese alcohol on this specially designed shelving. Customers can see what is available for ordering.

And before I left the restaurant, I definitely need to grab a photo with Mr koji Tsukamoto who prepared such a wonderful fugu set course.

Thanks FUKU Fine Fugu Kaiseki Restaurant and Mr Koji for the wonderful and luxurious food tasting session!
