Silk Road | The Oriental Art Of Blending

Remember my previous post about Silk Road? Well I was invited to their event last Saturday @ Metal Bee's. Silk Road, which showcase how eastern culture influences the modern world today. I felt so lucky to get invited to know more about Silk Road. Without Further Ado, let's get started.

Sandy, dressed up in CheongSam to attend Silk Road. Well you can spot behind Sandy, there's are few beautiful paintings of Chinese Descent. Furthermore, I felt like back in time, because my blogger friends are actually dressed in traditional outfits! Too bad, I don't have any traditional outfits to wear, I dressed up in red dress instead. Kind of CNY feel.

 While waiting other guest to arrive, the lounge area has few activities were placed around us to let us get to know more about the Eastern Culture. The first and the most rave activities which makes all the guest busying taking photos and impress us the most. Chinese Rainbow Calligraphy, where an master calligrapher drew out guests' names using animals and sign, those animals has difference meaning, master drew my name with Dragon (Powerful), Fish (Prosperity), Singing Bird (Happy Life), Butterfly (Beauty). He is indeed very talented, such a beautiful work isn't it?

The second part is The Art Of Tea Making, honestly I used to drink tea every day but for lazy people like me I use tea bag instead of follow steps and requirements, I never knew there are actually steps and requirements to follow to make a perfect tea until I went to this event. Oops, this is really amazes me a lot!

After the rest of the guest arrived, we were ushered into the dining area, I love how their decorated the place especially the pretty kinetic ornaments which floated up and down from the ceiling. Not to mentioned, I pretty enjoyed the Chinese Classical Band and Traditional Chinese Music which makes the whole place felt more Eastern. 

In addition, Diana Liu singing in classical Chinese songs to entertain us while enjoying our dinner. 

Entrée One
Scallop, Calamari, Citrus. Mints and Petals. A total sensorial experience that refreshes from smell to taste in an Aromatic, Creamy and Smooth. The scallop is so fresh and juicy! 

Entrée Two
Green tea salmon 40, smoked cucumber, texture of potato and green beurre Blanc. A fresh and delicate experience that is balanced with the taste of refreshing, fragrant and floral. This was my personal favorites among all the dishes served. The salmon is so fresh and succulent. 

Plat Principal
Cordyceps chicken on chlorophyll carpet, porcini mushrooms and pares de riz. A balanced, crisp with a clean after taste that lingers on the palate. This dishes taste very special compared with other dishes, its woody and bittersweet taste. 

Last but not least, Dessert 
Plum, Cheese, Chocolate and Basil. As first, I thought it will taste weird, but after I tried omg this is so delicious! The plum with cheese just match perfectly. Although I start feeling full, but you know what we got two stomachs especially girls! One for FOOD, One for DESSERT! 

Thank You Chef James Won and Enfin Culinary Team for putting so much effort making such a oriental fine dining for us! Is so delicious and unforgettable! With carefully selected ingredient, oriental art of blending with enhanced ritual of perfection.

Silk Road Inspirations

The Silk Road derives its name from the lucrative Chinese silk trade, a major reason for the connection of trade routes into an extensive transcontinental network. The German terms Seidenstraße and Seidenstraßen ("the Silk Road/Route") were coined by Ferdinand von Richthofen, who made seven expeditions to China from 1868 to 1872. Some scholars prefer the term "Silk Routes" because the road included an extensive network of routes, though few were more than rough caravan tracks.

Over the years, Silk Road has been the route that connected the East Asia to the other side of the world. Not only it serves as a platform of trading luxurious goods, it is also a network of cultural and knowledge exchange. It is no doubt that the Eastern culture is influencing the world today in many aspects.

Make up, is one of the Eastern influence on today’s culture. Putting on makeup has become a routine for women these days; even some men do it too. It is not a weird phenomenon, because everyone is equal. Do you know that the use of cosmetics was found in Ancient Egypt around 4,000 BC? The Ancient Egyptians used a wide range of tools to mix and apply the makeup. Kohl, used to outline the eyes was made up of lead, copper, burned almonds, soot and other ingredients. It was believed that by wearing makeup, it protected from evil spirits whilst also improving failing eye sight.   

Makeup of the modern era has changed in so many ways technically; from what’s in the product to the way it is applied. If you are up to date with current trends, you should notice that most of the popular makeup styles are inspired by the Korean culture. The K-Pop look is the “in: thing right now, and it’s created with the use of CUSHION COMPACT. This product is originated from Korea, and it has recently gained tremendous amount of attention in the Western cosmetics market. 

Another famous beauty-trend from Korea is the Ulzzang look, a Korean term meaning "best face" or "good looking,” which involves certain characteristics such as dewy skin, doe eyes and the “just bitten” lip look. In Western makeup they called it "GRADATION LIPS" but it is actually the same thing as Korean’s "just bitten" lip. 

Asia has emerged as a source of innovation in the industry because of the creativity, speed and dedication in developing their products. One of the best examples to showcase their creativity is the recent product, the Brow Gel. This beauty product is too amazing not to share! It is a tinted brow gel that has the ability to last on your brows for a week. Although it is not permanent like brow embroidery, it’s definitely much wallet-friendly compared to it!

Well, Korea has been a major influence to the world in not only Beauty, but also Fashion and Cuisine too. Just take a look in our homeland, Korean restaurants can be found in many places, clothing from Korea are imported in many major malls, Kpop music are played in many shops and eateries.. Well you name it.

So these are some of my thoughts on how Silk Road inspires the Eastern to blend in with today’s Westernized culture. What about you?
