I fell in love with the Shiseido Rosarium Bath and Haircare line a couple of years ago, when I spotted it at a skincare and cosmetic store in Japan. Initially, I bought it because of the pretty rose print. Then I discovered that I liked the scent too. Not natural by any means, it is an artificial sweet rose scent that is rather strong but thankfully does not linger.
The cream is pink, and it washes off cleanly. In fact, for people with dry skin, the shower cream might not be suitable as it does strip the skin of moisture, but once in a while I need to slough off all the oil and grime and experience that squeaky clean feeling.
The shampoo performs similar to the shower cream in that it can be drying, but the hair pack does its job of conditioning the hair. That said, it is still more suitable for normal hair and for regular use. A light conditioner that does not weigh the hair down.
It is not expensive at around $24 a tube, and usually you get a discount at the store, putting the entire Rosarium range at around $12-20 per item. For a product by Shiseido and with such a delightful print, I'm contented.

I had mistakenly thought that Gardens By The Bay was officially open, and asked the boy to drive us there on Tuesday. It turns out that the official opening will be in June 2012.
Upon u-turning out of the area, we happened to see lots of kites dotting the sky at Marina Barrage and decided to take a few pictures.
We ended up enjoying the breeze, visiting the gallery, and having peanut butter and kaya toast on a nice and cloudy public holiday afternoon.
The view of Marina Bay Sands now includes the Super Trees!
People having a picnic, napping, or just plain chatting on the green roof. You can even rent the place for a corporate function or wedding reception.
I've never seen this many kites dotting the sky!
The boy's favourite kite that day.
This is the first time that we noticed there's a gallery on the 2nd floor. All about cherishing water in order to have a sustainable supply.
A simulation of flood control showing crest gates at the dam letting excess water from storms out into the sea, alleviating flooding in low lying areas in the city.
My yummy lime juice with bits of sour kana.
The toast was pathetic compared to Toast Box, but with a view of the sea, the food is secondary ;)
