Food For Thought & Tiong Bahru

Was about to blog about yesterday but I found a set of pictures taken long ago because I forgot about them…

So once upon a time, after school, Nicole, Jia En, Fiona and I took a bus to the Botanic Gardens.
Only to find that where we were heading was at another gate and the weather was much too warm for walking (or breathing).
So we flagged down a taxi and took a ride from Botanic Gardens to Botanic Gardens HAHAHAHAHAHAHA πŸ˜€
We went to Food For Thought for lunch!

Butter toast and sunny side ups!
This was really yummy and, filling too!

I was quite stupid and ordered these mixed berries pancakes too because the above sounded quite small a portion.
How wrong I was because when they both came I was like, oh shit what should I eat first!?!?!?
I had the pancakes after and was too full to finish it…
It wasn’t all that great anyway so I made the right choice!
It with the cream thingy was not bad but, ugh just no please.

I’ll probably return next month for some giant breakfast because it looks really good!!!

Ok so yesterday I went out with Yuxuan!
We went to Tiong Bahru for the sole purpose of having some bak kut teh but guess what?!?!?!?!
It was in Mandarin, it was red and on the glass directly (looks like some auspicious phrase or something, honestly), it was small, it was surrounded by posters…
Without Yuxuan I might have sat around waiting for them to open or something 😦
I really wanted some bak kut teh 😦

Before that, we went to Tiong Bahru Bakery because I missed my little kouign amann so much ^_^

YUM πŸ˜€

This is love in the form of carbohydrates.
Infinite thanks to Joe for introducing this disk to me!

Then we went to the market for Hwa Yuen Porridge!

Super love their porridge!!
I always have the shredded chicken one πŸ˜€
Then it poured 😦 and I took out my umbrella when we left…
So we crossed the road and… THE RAIN STOPPED.
God just wanted to wet my umbrella or something!??!?!

We then walked to Books Actually.

It is almost sad I was born in the wrong decade because I cannot fully attach myself to all these.
And the biggest bummer is that I didn’t grow up with music legends!
Thank god I found Queen and Styx and lots of old musicals thanks to YouTube yay!

When we got out it was raining again and I was like “wanna cab?” and she was like “ok” since someone just alighted at the shopfront.
So we went to Neil Road because at Books Actually we saw a advertisement about some exhibition at Math Paper Press and we had nothing to do.

The boxes are mighty cute I had to snap some pictures!

We walked to Ann Siang Road!!!
I think I’m now able to walk from Outram to Chinatown this is amazing!!!!
With more comfortable shoes and better weather another day, I might do it again πŸ˜€
Kki was closed and I wanted to die right there and then but we went to Shots
So the whole day I just went to places I’ve been to eat things I’ve had T_T
They had a cake and coffee set at $10 so I was like why not?

Vanilla latte πŸ˜€

Crumble top cheesecake
Tasted strange at first but it turned out good πŸ™‚
It was sad though, how they had only 2 cakes to choose from and the other being carrot cake…
So I was, in other words, coerced to get this cheesecake that was really helpful in description like “crumble top”
Yes, I can see that its top is crumbly but what does it taste like??
I still have no idea… just cheesecake.

After that we walked to some Chinatown building whatever its name is (they just -complex and -centre all the buildings and I give up)…
I bought 2 fat quarters and now I need some zippers to be able to sew up at least a pouch I had in mind…
Oh and I have an urge to buy a monogrammed and customised satchel from The Leather Satchel Co. so what the hell I need a job asap for 2 reasons…
One, because school requires me to gain 40 hours of experience of a job I might be tied to for about 3 months (oh god) and two, I need money for my material needs.
But $300 is not so bad compared to my other wants like the PS11 or the Alexa amongst a zillion others which would set me back by thousands which I don’t even have?!?!?!
Ugh life is hard…
