gwenbeauty || Cleaning my bb cushion sponge

When @lovelumi posted a photo and wrote about cleaning her bb cushion sponge with all that foundation left. It reminded me that i have not washed mine and had to do it. 

I usually wash my beauty blender, concealer and foundation brush every two/three uses. But the one and only thing I've never washed was my bb cushion sponge. That was maybe when they first started selling the bb cushion, the sponge was one of the selling point of being antibacterial and all that. 

So, I decided to take out my laneige bb cushion to wash it. Thinking about it, ive had this for about a year and I've never washed it. (I know! Eww right!) 
This is how it looks like before the wash. Fyi, i still use this and its not like a thrown/unwanted sponge. 
Took me a while to figure out how to wash it. Because unlike the beauty blender, this was not built to go through everyday wash and i was afraid it might break when im washing or rubbing it. 

The minute i poured the brush cleanser and squeezed the sponge. I was horrified. 

First rinse.. after about 3 minute of gentle squeezing. I poured the brush cleanser again as i could still see foundation on the sponge. 

2nd rinse. How is this possible!! 
Third rinse i decided to just use a little bit of the brush cleanser as i didnt want to waste it. There was still so much more i was horrified and by the third rinse. It has been about 5 minutes. 
Four rinse. By this time, im not sure if cleaning the sponge is possible at all. LOL. But as you can see its getting cleaner. 

So after another 2 wash. ( a total of 6 wash) 


Lesson learnt:: clean your makeup brush/sponged.

Google doesn't like GST

Sometimes you get the funniest answers from Google Translate. But today, this hit the Social Media and it's just hilarious. 
Google translate from Malay to English. 

I know that the Google Translate can be edited just like Wikipedia. But it's just #toofunnytonotshare

I've always been a fan of Japanese food. Sushi and sashimi and all that ramen and the list goes on. Funny that I love the korean language and korean skincare and all, but I prefer the Japanese food over Korean food. lol 

Anyway, if you're from Malaysia, you should know Sushi Zanmai by now. It's almost everywhere. It wasn't recently until I knew that Sushi Zanmai was actually owned by a 'company' call Supersushi. They own Sushi Zanmai, Pasta Zanmai, Hokkaido Ichiba (my favourite place), Ozen Zanmai, Zen, Sushi Zen... so many right wtf. I actually suspected Hokkaido and Sushi Zanmai were the same because the menu and logo were damn similar. and i was right. 

Sushi Zanmai and Hokkaido Ichiba is definately one of the top ten japanese sushi restaurant to go in KL. 

I don't usually order the sets whenever I go for Japanese cuisine because I feel it takes the joy out of it. LOL. How can you not have nigiri sushi?? 

Salmon Mentaiyaki - Salmon/Belly Nigiri Sushi is one thing, but for the past two year, mentaiyaki has been coming up and you can see it everywhere. and best of all, it's actually DAMN NICE. #gwenapproved

Just in case you didn't know, mentaiyaki is actually marinated pollock roe. Some call it mentai sauce, mentaiyaki, mentaiko (similar just different spelling. ) 

Yakiniko Don - Beef fillet with onion on rice. This is like one of the simplest recipe. But you know they say sometimes they easy ones are the hardest? It's true. The trick for yakiniko don is the beef. If it's too dry, or over cooked, or too raw, or not marinated well, the whole dish deduct points. lol 
I don't usually order a don by myself cause I won't be able to finish my order food. So fatty usually orders it and I nibble from him. 

Edamame - Not everyones favourite, but it's my kind of french fries. :) 

Salmon platter. lol how can anyone resist this. #nuffsaid 

Who's a sushi/japanese fan as well? Share what is your worst/best experience or where is your favourite place.
