Kinsa Sushi

I just found photos I’ve forgotten in my camera. For a hella long time.

Went to Kinsa Sushi with Lynette one day. Buy 2 free 1 lunch promotion and these two beasts had the same thoughts man!!! Of course we got 1.5 each πŸ˜€
Her chirashi don with a flower. She loves it.
My tempura set.
Our beef set. But she just stole all the beef ;__;
It’s really good!!! The sauce is bae!
Then I remember we took a cab to Orchard because she’s too rich and the weather was too ridiculous.
Don’t know what we did… ??

Bae baumkuchen ice-cream πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

Don’t even remember when or where I had this chicken rice because it was so long ago??? I don’t even remember whether or not it was good???

Snaffles ice-cream πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

??? What is this T____T Where is it from??????
And this coffee. ??????
This post is so useless HAHAHAHAHAHA???

Some chicken salad at The King Louis!
I only remember this because of the mushroom soup!
Like how can I forget when one of the bestest mushroom soups I’ve found in Singapore suddenly cut their portions by about half FFFFFFFF 😦
Btw this chicken is really yummy!!

Chai Ho satay my love.

Earlier this year at Kith Cafe with Charmaine.
Doing business and all y’allllllll!!!!!!

Frankly I’ve yet to find a tiramisu better than the one Hazel made for me the first time ;__; She is now in Perth and so is the tiramisu that could’ve been… T___T

Ok, so there was this one day when I walked past a poster that said Crystal Jade’s xiao long bao is $2 with every bowl of la mian. Of course I buy la!!!!!


CafΓ© & Meal Muji because in Japan I did not bother to go try so I have to try in Singapore .__.
Like Fiona said, it’s just expensive zichar. But it’s nice when cold too so that’s good.

One day after work we went to Liang Court. Got a bunch of stuff from Meidi-ya and went looking for dinner.
Brought them to Tamoya a while just before closing so we had to make do with whatever’s left lol… They loved it. YES

Working = eating. Do I earn? Don’t think so hahaha…

Go find me at the Art Connector!
Had lunch at 1933! I love set lunches πŸ™‚ $$$$



Then I went to work lol.

One day my mum went for a massage and I was like can I drive around while you’re at it and she said ok unwillingly. YES!
So I went looking for bookshops. I was looking for a book. I don’t even know what anymore but ok…

Then I was still too early so I went to lepak at Lepark.

Damn good spam fries ^__^

Chicken rice sushi. Boom.

The toilet is really creepy and so am I.


This was when the truffle shaker fries were out and it sucks LOL. And I brought out my saved seaweed sachet because swag.

Chatted with the Milo uncle and he said “Iced Milo not thick is not called iced Milo. Is called iced water. Milo dinosaur got so thick or not?” πŸ˜€ U GO GURL

$20 for a 3-course lunch at Pepper Steakhouse is pretty much damn awesome in value and taste but no one else sees it.

Yet they are ok with spending $17 on a bowl of ramen. Guys! Why?

The super stack kinda sucks now because they pre-slice it and it’s no longer moist af.

Shin Yeh’s not very nice leh :/

Tsuru-koshi for dinner one day.

Prata because Zion was closed for cleaning for a while T_T

A bowl of taugeh at Ramen Champion lol.

Oriole with Hazel πŸ˜€

The cajun fries and death cream GOOODOODOODODODODDDDD!!!! πŸ˜€

Bak chor mee with Chara after class because she has weird cravings.

Tony’s Pizza mayor in da house

Itacho Sushi before class.

Went to look for Marissa (I had the car!! Why?)

Supper at Niqqi’s The Cheese Prata Shop. Lul so full.


Ok let me just stop here. 3 posts in a few hours man!!! EFFICIENT!!! I’d continue but I have a flight to catch! (Yes this is queued! (So is the next post hahaha))


Some stuff

I hadn’t realise I’d let myself ignore this site for so long! So here are some fillers!!!!

My life as a mayor of Zion hawker hahahaha

Omurice at Ramen Champion. Kids’ meals are so difficult to attain as an adult that when you actually manage to order them it becomes twice as nice. First you taste success, then you taste the awesome sauce assortment in kids’ meals and it being in a car just makes it damn MMMMMM.

Zion with really good lighting.

Did you know I lost my mayorship of Ichiban Boshi? 😦

Bought some Korean honey chicken to eat in class. Japanese food is better. 5eva.

Maggi goreng pattaya at Spize.

My phone’s screen shattered for the first time ever T_T

Tried Boom Chocolatta because B&J’s promo πŸ˜€


Eating at Swee Choon for the first time.

It’s ok only man.

It’s been a while since I last went to look at puppies at the pet shop while working :<

Went to Wala Wala with Krissada Tangjaiyoo and I haven’t seen him for more than two years. I had forgotten how almost completely incomprehensible he sounds because of his Thai accent hahahaha!

Lasagne at Gastronomia πŸ˜€

Dinner before class! At this point I think we were just beginning to discuss business plans πŸ˜€

She needs alcohol so it was Dosukoi Sakaba again. The onigiri is bae man.

We had another bowl of edamame because it’s so good.

Had Korean BBQ at I’m KIM to celebrate Tiffany’s birthday and Ling Kee said “I thought celebrating her birthday is just an excuse to eat Korean BBQ.”

Seaweed shaker fries made a comeback so I had it almost every day.

Kyoho grapes for $10 so I bought and I cri T_T it’s so good T___T

Soft shell chilli crab burger at Relish isn’t something I’d eat again.

Me havocing in the car and I don’t even know why :/

Also found out you can get mudpie at McDonald’s for only $2 if you ordered “chocolate sundae with Oreo toppings”. You’re welcome.

I love Teppei Syokudo πŸ˜€

You might be aware that Oriole is my favourite coffee joint but it got a facelift and it’s even better!!!!!

I love!!!

Boon Tong Kee because Alton wants to eat overpriced pyramid rice and made the whole army spend unnecessary money on chicken rice :/

Zong Yang’s birthday.

51st birthday.

$23 wagyu bento from Takashimaya fair πŸ˜€ lol πŸ˜€ yum πŸ˜€

Hokkaido dome is my favourite bread from BreadTalk hahaha πŸ˜€

Ikea food with Jasmine and Douglas!

Douglas basket and abandoned us so we went to Sunday Folks for this πŸ˜€

Before class and

After class because seaweed shaker is bae hahahaha πŸ˜€

Kurobuta katsudon at Tampopo πŸ™‚

I love Liang Court yum

Old Airport Road with Hazel ^____^
We shared a lot of food it’s great πŸ˜€

I love this chee cheong fun man!!!
Oh, we’re not done.

Went to Brawn and Brains for coffee. Nahhhh….

Saw my road so I made Hazel park somewhere to let me take this photo of CASIA CRESCENT hahahaha GEDDIT ME CRESCENT!
It was damn awkward to try to take photos by the roadside because ALL THE TAXIS KEPT SLOWING DOWN THINKING WE WANT A TAXI. Lol please I just want me.
Oh, we’re still not done.

Chye Seng Huat Hardware Coffee!!!

Yum @ everything.
Then I went home and…

ate this goodness. Hahahaha whole day!!


Ok the end. Jk, it never ends because I’m so lazy. I will queue another post hahaha πŸ˜€


Zion Riverside Food Centre

Wazzup. I know I’ve neglected this space once again. But that’s because I love my job so much.
Recently snagged the mayorship of the said hawker on Foursquare (LOL nobody uses it anymore) and thought it should be my duty to fill here with pictures of repetitive food choices πŸ˜€

When I first found out there was a hawker I was shocked la… Cos I passed this road for 5 months before and never once noticed its existence. What’s more, it was home to so many popz stalls.

Lau Goh’s CTK. It’s sibei yums. Then I found out the black one was nice too.

Boon Tong Kee’s duck rice. Ya, you thought they made chicken rice but this is good too.

This wanton mee is niceness. But it makes me miss the one at Smith Street a lot T_T

Ingredients gao gao char kway teow. Anyway, I brought my mum to eat this and she said it’s yummy. She is damn stingy with praises so it’s safe to say it’s damn good. I’m in no position to judge char kway teow because I seldom eat char kway teow.

Chicken chop took no time at all to prepare. It’s yummy but the chicken chop is more like chicken slice I’m quite sad about that 😦

The one thing there that I feel I won’t eat again…

Damn good fishballs O____O

The one time I found the store queueless so I went to the display and saw CEREAL CHICKEN omg πŸ˜€

No effort chicken rice set πŸ˜₯ I look at the vegetable and I cry.

Also the BESTESTESTEST iced Milo in all history of hawker iced Milos. Kenjo is 24 hours but it’s more like 24 minutes. Sometimes it’s closed πŸ˜₯ The uncle see Douglas and I coming then pull down the shutters or something LOLOL.
Anyway I don’t think you can find a thicker iced Milo that stays thick even after all the ice has melted.

Discovered the BBQ wings are hella yummy.

Maybe any BBQ wings beside some form of water body will always taste great i.e. at East Coast Park and stuff.

When I was buying the wings I noticed the queue at this prawn noodle stall was L-shaped… so I made it a point to have some when there’s no queue. It’s so nice T_T it’s like tonkotsu with prawns.

Addiction T_T

Hazel came to meet me for dinner one day. I then realised it wasn’t me she came for. It was the fishball noodles πŸ˜₯

Bak chor mee and I figured the fishball noodles are still better because their meatball had the really porky taste :/

Ayam panggang here is actually not bad but it makes me miss the one in NP :/
PRO TIP: Be a guy or get a guy to order this for bigger bang for your buck because if you’re not an auntie-killer, the $4 you spend will yield much lesser food…

Told you so…


Another annoying thing I’ve been doing? Rotating between 3 meal options (actually 2) at Ichiban Boshi thanks to their mega value off-peak meal.
That’s like $6.90 after taxes for a mini donburi, chawanmushi, miso soup and tea. The word mini shouldn’t really be there because this $6.90 will fill you. Of course, at the expense of having your meal at a weird ass timing that is neither lunch nor dinner.

Karaage don. This is why the 3 eventually became 2.

Because 3 pieces of chicken is really not worth it in comparison to the others…

Yakiniku don. You see why.

Tempura don. They don’t let me change the vegetables though. The good thing is there are colleagues who don’t eat ebi tempura (why?!) and eat eggplants and lady’s fingers (WHY?!) so we trade tempura LOL.

On days I don’t feel like eating fried food I’d opt for this.

But this usually wins because the scrambled egg between the tempura and the rice is the MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM ;__;

Other food stuff with a little more variation (who am I kidding though):

Kid’s meal at Ramen Champion. Delicious. Why aren’t adults’ meals as comforting and assorted?

Also, it came in a car. Speechless πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

Tebasaki. Bae.


Omurice πŸ˜€

The other time twister fries made a comeback for SG50, I ate few things else.

If they served twister fries in the morning, you wouldn’t see this on the tray.

Gone case.

Banana Nutella crepe at Ned’s Crepe. Think I need to figure out how to make my own crepes and eat them forever or something.

Yuzu honey soft cream costed me a bloody $6 or something as ridiculous at Isetan’s fair :/ sucker for Japanese food T_T

Usual cheese baked pasta at Eighteen Chefs


ChΓ’teraisΓ© had an atrium pop-up and I saw it every single day. How could I resist???????

This mikan ice-cream is beyond belief. Unfortunately, it’s some limited edition thingy that the chef at Kuriya made just for this pop-up. Lagi unfortunately, Zihui and Jes who tried some on my recommendation didn’t like it .__. ACQUIRED TASTE AH.


Brown sugar castella!!!

Ramune ice!

Double fantasy cream puff!

The last day of the pop-up I went overboard ._.

Bento is life. Period.

Unatama for $8 T_T yumz T_T

Surprise pasar malam. Take my money.

Pisang keju???

Fried fish bee hoon soup at Chai’s Original Sliced Fish Soup.
You know, if someone names their stall after a dish, you should order it…
Because I gehkianged and ordered fried fish I had a terrible first impression of this T_T cos I was eating bunches of flour with no fish whatsoever T_T

Ok then this one got fish. Because I bought the dish the stall was named after. Rule of thumb.

Never trusting cereal fish that aren’t from Kimly.

Pepper Lunch lor…

Triple-Os has 0 customer for as long as I’ve seen the food court and I went and got myself a burger. Really nice fries but now I’m just really skeptical about the food because how long has it been there?? It was also the day my phone shattered I had to use my phone in a plastic bag so I don’t cut myself up using it excessively.

Tony’s Pizza. X__X

Truffle fries.

Shared this 18″ with Douglas. Is eating more than a guy a cause for worry? Anyway I died when I went home. 4 slices is no joke X___X

Potato soup πŸ˜€
The other time Zhu Jun was like “is this an ant?” then she called for the waiter and went “THERE’S AN ANT IN MY SOUP!!!” and I just LOL-ed because I was watching my childhood joke books in person for the first time ever hahahaha turns out it was some herb from their bread that looks really like an insect!!

Breaded chicken leg πŸ˜€

Fruit tart πŸ˜€
Pepper Steakhouse & Bistro seems to be always empty and I was of course pleasantly surprised to learn that the food tastes great and the set lunches are so affordable πŸ˜€

This is Mike’s croissant pudding. He asked me to take a photo of it for him and then I refused to send it to him and tried to sell it to him as if it were stock .___. he still doesn’t have this picture.

Tomato soup πŸ˜€

Black pepper chicken burger πŸ˜€

Praline mousse tart πŸ˜€

Chicken hor fun at ε“ε‘³ζ–°ε€©εœ° (thanks geo-tagging, I’ll never have remembered this name without you) was yums.

We were sitting beside Krispy Kreme for a month and finally we decided to buy some. I’m not a donut person.

My first time at Kenny Rogers Roasters.

The chicken soup is damn nice la!! πŸ˜€


Jes looks like a 35-year-old mother of Jasmine’s.

Shared this pint with Zihui. It’s damn yummy????? T_T
Anyway, I miss Zihui as a co-pilot now that she’s in UK. We didn’t even have a supper we could call successful yet! :/

Gastronomia‘s lasagne πŸ˜€

New additions to my tiny Tomica collection. (I earned negative on this day thanks to the toy store T_T)

Nutella cake πŸ˜€

Favourite salted caramel crodo πŸ˜€

All the while I thought Don‘s logo was very sketchy so I never tried to give it a try. Mana tau the chicken pie is damn delicious T____T

Ducky at Poulet

Never really enjoyed Snickers because they always hurt my mouth since it’s a hard brick of dryness but Snickers ice-cream is something else.

Then there was once I shared this 1.6kg watermelon with Jes because it looked so good and I was craving for fruits :/
I totally loved it but everyone kept staring 😦 Why is it ok for you to eat Llao Llao while walking and me eating a watermelon is not?!?!!?!?!?!?!?

Jasmine & Friends. She turned 20.

Maggi goreng pattaya at Spize. It’s so spicy but it’s very nice la.
The sad thing is… the Milo dinosaur here costs $3.90 and isn’t even thicker than my $1.50 iced Milo at the hawker T_T

Other food stuff eaten when not being paid to be eating (hahahaha):

Had breakfast at Asanoya Bakery before I went to get myself a job. Yummy as before but I had to chow it down for I was almost late :/ When will I eat here without being pressed for time?

Crispy pork belly burger with fairy fries at Hambaobao. Really yummy and affordable. Except the place is really humid and dark…

Green tea bingsu at Binggojung! It’s like ice kacang on steroids!!!! Why is it that kakigori that I prefer and has been around for much longer never got its popularity?

Champignon red wine pork chop at Three Little Pigs. I felt rather upset that I spent half my day’s earning on something unsatisfactory.

Submarine baked potatoes wowowow!

Juchheim had baumkuchen ice-cream πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ BAE

Red bean bingsu (hahahaha my caption then was “red beangsu” hahahahaha I’m so funniez) at CafΓ© Insadong which I thought was super expensive for its size???

Chicken wings at Farmart πŸ˜€

VENISON!!!!!! πŸ˜€

Cheng’s Seafood Village needs to be in charge of more zichar places man!

Is this love?

Went to Nathan Hartono’s charity gig with Lynette and flying Hilary πŸ˜€

Strawberry hazelnut crepe at Max Brenner Chocolate Bar.

Gyoza-ya sells amazing gyoza at affordable prices O.O
(and this is too many gyoza for one person x_x)

Teriyaki chicken bento from Teppei Syokudo. They sell the bestest bento ever??? ;__;

Karaage bento ;___;

Xi Xiang Feng ??? yong tau foo. Who knows YTF can garner such a long queue man??

Hilary celebrated her 21st at The Refinery.

And the food’s so yummy!!!!!!


Ang kong siao at the Padang because SG50!!!!

My seat was awesome and the mobile column was πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

Rong Cheng bak kut teh afterwards.

I’m so boring I only drink the same shit at Koi all the time. Ice-cream hazelnut milk tea with konjac and pearls.

Teacher gave everyone Gudetama ^____^ hahahaha

The ultimate ζŸε‹ that is Chara.

Honey chicken bento from Kkul Dak. Very friendly staff but Korean bento < Japanese bento I'm so sorry…

Went to Dosukoi Sakaba after some time at FivδΊ” .___.

ζŸε‹ is ζŸε‹… Nobody liked sake but we got sake??? What the

But their edamame is hella good!!!!!!!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

Stingray .__. tastes like any other dried fish and I don’t mayonnaise.

Genius. We went to Chinatown at 10pm looking for the bae xiao long bao but forgot that shops usually are closed by then .___. So we ate the Tiong Bahru chicken rice. Soup remains damn damn damn damn good πŸ˜€

Huay Kwang Thai Mookata for Fiona’s 20th πŸ˜€

She was very surprised πŸ˜€ also bought her 5kg of russet potatoes X__X

Had my favourite Ootoya oyako don only to find they have changed the presentation.

And they reduced the size of the chawan and this one tasted like disappointment at its finest. You should all by now know that I worship this place and have high hopes for everything but tasting this was like learning that Santa doesn’t exist, etc.

Qi Ji popiah in the car.

And it’s yum!

Happy Mookata with the swagglez.

Because ζ’¦kata is the dream. Also didn’t invite the GOH whom the event was named after .___.

Worked till 11.30pm at Changi X_X and then cabbed to freaking Boon Lay to Power with the supper club. At another table. Friends??? ;__;

Because I don’t like chilli and ikan bilis, my nasi lemak looks more like primary school mixed vegetable rice without zhap. It’s really yummy though. Or it could be that I was totally famished because I didn’t eat since starting work at 1pm? (Because by Jia Ling’s rule, sushi is a snack and I can totally agree)

Went to Ming Jia Korean Food with Jasmine after her class and had my first jjajangmyeon! It’s very nice!! πŸ˜€
But you know what? I had a sauce stain on my face for an hour while shopping for dinner ingredients and not once did Jasmine try to tell me I have stuff on my face. Bitch.

Table-for-1 at Brewerkz simply because I was nearby after I finished delivering and craved my favourite soba salad πŸ˜€ $27 and got so many mosquito bites T_T

First time at Swee Choon Tim Sum because Chara was driving! πŸ˜€

Har gow looking super sad. Since when did har gow come in twos??? T_T

This prawn beancurd roll is a ball of fire!!! Niceness.


Some #chefcasia:

Nutella-stuffed French toast and broccoli stir-fry πŸ˜€

Tried baking cod but I have come to terms with my not having any affinity with the oven.

Went to Singapore Night Festival and caught an amazing performance πŸ˜€

The full moon in the background makes everything even nicer.
I loved the display πŸ™‚ Also got an awesome spot πŸ™‚ Although if anything went wrong I was sure I would have died because I was constantly underneath the suspension LOL.

If you’re wondering if I made any profits at work… HAHAHA what do you think??? I spend on food as I earn T___T Just look at what I’m surrounded with T___T


Tsukada Nojo & more yums

Some time early May I went out to dinner at Tsukada Nojo with these 2 cutie pies πŸ˜€ They honestly are super cute πŸ˜€
Travis’ friend was working there and she too was super cute πŸ˜€

Bijin nabe looks like a pot of tauhuey.
So beautiful!!
All we had to do was sit and eat because the staff does everything for you!
We got free fries! They were so yummy. And to think that their loyalty programme gives you such a title even if you are jobless… it feels wonderful πŸ™‚
Oh ya, when all the collagen dissolved, we found that in it were super tender chicken!
It was a delicious pot of fats.

When we were done we were given jellies with a super sweet message!

Now, for some food photos from when I returned from Tokyo till I ate there.

Prata Planet.

Some crazy huge watermelon I found very amusing.

Favourite Loong Fatt Tau Sar Piah πŸ˜€
Glorious carrot cake from Whampoa Drive Market & Food Centre #01-34.

Michael Jackson from #01-52 πŸ˜€

Hazel came over one day to cook stuff together πŸ˜€

Odamaki-mushi for our Cooking With No Dog channel. JK. When there’s no dog, we also forgot to measure all our ingredients hahahaha πŸ˜€
The chicken meat and udon we got sucks. Other than that it was good.

We then boiled shiitake and wakame and crab sticks to finish off some leftovers.
Learn the recipe from the pro:

Got this wonderful bunch of Hokkaido omiyage for only $25!!!! πŸ˜€
After that, I bought another package for $50!
Then I think they found out they were making a huge loss and the prices of these now are back to almost normal retail price T____T
I was gonna spend $90 on another bigger package but I decided not to because I honestly was super broke for a while, thinking it’s gonna be there when things get better. Thanks for breaching my trust T___T

If you can’t yet tell, I love ham. Also I make amazing sandwiches because they are always overloaded. Tried to make a pocket and the bread tore LOL.

Niku udon with ebi tempura at Tsuru Koshi for only $9.90! What a wonderful promotion πŸ˜€
Don’t get your hopes up because the promotion is likely over.

Shwen brought me to Guksu Restaurant for jeongol.
Looks like Tsukada Nojo’s hahaha.
Herbal chicken broth yums!
Noodles were good too, everything else ordinary, EXCEPT the bamboo meatball thing. It tasted quite chemically and ummm I tried to take more than one bite and it’s just no 😦

My Instagram is like a mini time capsule. Mostly from the long time I take to blog about the food I eat lol.
Just found this and laughed at my caption:
There’s straight juice and then there’s…


I’m also an aunt now!!!!! She was born while I was having fun in Tokyo DisneySea and didn’t know about her existence until I left Tokyo Disneyland because Shwen took so long to tell me this baby was my new relative after sending me a picture of newborn her. LOL!!!!!

She looks like Elffie!

I got tickets to Kinder Bueno’s movie screening of Pitch Perfect and I asked Marissa to go with me πŸ˜€

Got sushi for dinner and I was famished. Took 1.5 hours looking for the damned place because it said Gardens by The Bay but it’s nowhere to be found. Who knew there was a separate bit of Gardens at the other side of the sea?!?!?!?! T___T

Was an hour late for the screening after taking a cab there and tolerating this annoying driver. But all is well because I got a nice pillow πŸ˜€

It was beautiful after πŸ™‚ and then we were lost. LOLZ took a taxi home.

Yummy bak kut teh for breakfast at Leon Kee Claypot Pork Rib Soup. I always liked the pepper one but this herbal one is good πŸ˜€

Bunmeido’s Castella I got from Tokyo πŸ˜€
I bought it because I remembered it was the shop I ordered my fake birthday cake online from and it was damn good. And also this packaging is soooo cute!!

Dinner at Ichiban Boshi with Shwen.
Salmon nitsuke. YUMMY!!!
Teriyaki chicken don.
Tempura Moriawase.
It seemed as though every time I eat with Shwen we never ever have a normal one-plate meal and we eat until we’re on the brink of death.
It surprised me how yummy the food was because I always had the impression Ichiban Boshi was a mega chain with inconsistent food. I am so sorry why did I even have that impression?? T___T

Sunday Folks again.

Then went karaoke and when we tried our best to sing Hokkien songs LOL the system shut down and couldn’t go back on HAHAHAHAHA.

Fiona was driving me home but we went to Happy Mookata for dinner first. We nearly died from the buffet πŸ˜€

Went out with Pignette!!!!! πŸ˜€

Tori karaage don at Isetan I love bentos πŸ˜€

Also check out this huge ass tuna!!!!!!

Went to the Science Centre and found my next lunch. We left quite soon because it was quite boring T_T except for that liquid nitrogen show we went to and the whole thing exploded πŸ˜€
Then we went to RWS. And settled for Chili’s.
We both got the same thing?!?!?!?!
Honey chipotle chicken crispers.
Lynette is awesome and I miss her T__T because she’s always abroad T___T
But it’s great that she can buy me stuff I can’t get in Singapore!!!

LIKE A JAR OF CASIA!!!!!!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€
πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ IT’S A ME πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

Hokkien mee from NTUC FoodFare yum.

Brought my mum to Happy Mookata and she finally said it was yummy after I tried to convince her that mookata is better than Korean BBQ, because she’s not had any mookata before.

Some dumpling noodles at Crystal Jade before I made the journey to the east.

I was early so I went and bought myself an ice-cream and then got scolded by SMRT for eating at the station. ??? But 7-Eleven is right there?!?!?!?!?!

Skating with Amanda in East Coast Park and found a chicken!
Didn’t know she was a slug!!! I had to skate and pull her because she was so lazy -_____-

And she spent lots of time sitting at the jetty and wishing she was back in Maldives. I wish I’d been to Maldives!!! -___-

Yummy beach fare! I miss eating BBQ foods by beaches T_T

We then went to Parkway Parade? Or something like that. The new stuff in the east are foreign to me. Then she went home and I waited for my mum to come pick me up.
Got her a piece of gold brownie for her birthday from Chalk Farm!
Then I found myself back at East Coast Park -____- because we’re in the east and my mum loves seafood and it’s her birthday so what better reasons do we have to not Long Beach? Actually we wanted to eat at some other crab place but it’s closed la… LOL!
Broccoli with scallops a must-have πŸ˜€
Venison πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ It seemed more like my birthday than hers??? -___-
Chilli crab!!!! πŸ˜€

Don’t know if I’ve talked about this bae Kumamon Pocky!! I hope to find it in Singapore!!!!

Very nice prawn mee at ???? WHERE ?????? It’s at Little Road… opposite Old Street Bak Kut Teh… in a very dim coffee shop… then there’s this store. Yummy!
Then I went to Pioneer Junior College to look for Marissa at her art exhibition!

This is her piece called Weave.
She commented on my picture “nice edit!” but then I did nothing to it LOL. People I know these days literally take hours to edit one image to post online (I witnessed Yuxuan doing that) and I can’t even be bothered.

Used the cute little noritama I got from a random combini in Tokyo to make these cute little onigiri πŸ˜€


Ok, I’m super hungry right now. My dinner at 6pm comprised a salad, 5 little piah balls and 6 slices of Sara Lee pound cake. T___T
What was I thinking to look through all my pictures of food in my state??? T_______T
I have not blogged about graduation and more food yet… So look forward to it!! (Although I don’t know when)
OH and also these really nice gyozas I made a few days ago!!! I will show all of you my beautiful gyozas!!!! πŸ˜€


The Little Prince Art Collection & Two Wings

I found out on the night before the last day that there was this art exhibition at Fullerton Hotel featuring the artworks from my favourite book!!!!
All by Artheline PAJ Art Studio.
Those mobiles are great!
The holes are real!!!

He’s so cute!
But I’ve not seen this illustration before! I even looked through my copy of the book o.o

The Lamplighter’s got illuminated backdrop πŸ™‚
My mum also casually called the King “ahma” LOL!

Only when leaving did I realise the giant mobiles above this piece.
It takes only 3-4 hours (maximum) to finish reading The Little Prince I don’t know why nobody wants to read it when I ask them to 😦

I captioned this with #howdidthefoxgettoB612? Is nobody going to tell me lol…

Also behind the scenes LOL

Atap chee ice-cream duly missed πŸ˜€

Went to Salute Kopitiam for dinner afterwards.
My mum got this prawn thing from Seasalt.
Didn’t fancy it very much because I don’t like cream sauces.
Mushroom soup from Stew KΓΌche that was quite ordinary.
HAHAHAHAHAHA Two Wings but got six.
YUM but they’re super oily and I usually prefer my meat grilled.
Look how crispy!
Wedges yum yum πŸ˜€

It’s also about time I go replace my stolen phone because I have no motivation to do anything at all and the spare Android is so laggy and frustrating to use 😑 It’s been a month!!


1 Day in Batam

#casiainbatam Flickr

I went to Batam with Marissa last week! She paid for my share of the Groupon deal as a belated birthday present LOL thanks BBG (no, it’s not babygirl (she’s turning 20 this year!), it’s Batam Bebek Goreng). For $40 + $20 ferry tax + $6.50 ferry tax, I find this trip a darn good steal! Which explains why so many people have gone on the exact same tour (literally the whole itinerary). Google it!

Even then, I won’t spare anyone of this stupid image of the store front of Chocolate House, which was the first stop upon leaving Sekupang Ferry Terminal.
Honestly quite boring and the whole bus (15 tourists) went in and out empty-handed.

Went to Maha Vihara Duta Maitreya Buddhist Temple!
It is filled with the Laughing Buddha.
There’s a whole stretch of super cute statues but I only took photo of this because he was in one of the most comfortable positions ever.
*can’t be bothered to straighten this picture or wait for the roads to clear*
At this point I was really hungry and lunch was hours away T_T
Found a sign pointing to a restaurant and, from the other end of the aisle I saw a signboard that said “vegetarian restaurant”! I nearly wept! Of course there wasn’t gonna be any meat in a temple T_T
But soon I found out why the Buddha was laughing. Or Buddhas were laughing.
My fondest memory of Batam when I was there a decade ago was their fried potato tossed in flavouring powders.
And while this takes on a new shape, IT WAS AMAZING AND WAS ONLY 50 CENTS A STICK!!!!!!!!!!! I got one more but that one was cut too thin and chip-like crispy. Still, I should’ve gotten all of them!!!

Next was boring shopping at ??????
Magnum was $1.80 so I had to buy it right? Not really… it wasn’t very yummy and I should’ve eaten other wacky ice-cream.

Lapis of lapis at Batam Layer Cakes. Didn’t get to try samples because it was so crowded and I just didn’t want to squeeze in. Bought a box of kueh lapis with prunes for my mum because she told me to buy one if it was below $30, and it was strategically $29 lol. It smelled really good but the layers were a mess of waves and they tasted ok, although I’m no big fan of kueh lapis… (I LOVE BAUMKUCHEN THOUGH)

FINALLY it was lunch time!!! This seafood lunch at Golden Prawn 933 is included in the package. Talk about value!!
It was not bad!
Except I limited myself to eating rice + calamari (yum) + this corn soup made of starch (unexpectedly yum). Because I don’t eat gong gong, sambal kangkong is coated in sambal, the fish was fried and bony and slightly spicy so I gave up trying, every prawn was stained with mayonnaise except one (so I ate that one), and I had nobody to help me with the crab and it didn’t have the giant pincer (the only part I know how to eat without assistance).

We were going around Golden City and we were at this stop for activities.
$6 for 15 arrows. Bullseye and I’ll get a free ride on the flying fox.
But I sucked T_T
So did Marissa. She also offered to pay $6 for me to fly through a jungle and over a pond.
Putting on my harness as I stared at what might kill me.
The biggest challenge was really trying to scale this tower on steep stairs with only one side of rails to hold on to. So I was grabbing on to dear life with both hands because I would plunge to my death if I were to slip. I should have been belayed before ascending lor T_T
Jumping off, it was quite lame and not exactly fast or anything…
Before I left I asked the dude how I was gonna get down and he said his friend is at the other end. So ok.
BUT when I was approaching the end THERE WAS NOBODY???? So I was like “OMG HOW DO I STOP? I AM GOING TO DIE?”
Then they slowly appeared and pushed a ladder to me LOL. Everybody was laughing? Sadistic as hell??? 😦
First time on a zip-line and I survived! WHO’S LAUGHING NOW????
Sisters Rivlyn and Rivy (Ikr I thought my name was unconventional) were the only ones other than myself to do stuff here lol.

They give us shower caps to reduce the grossness of shared helmets but man do they smell terrible. Mine was damp and the face shield wouldn’t stay up nor down so it’s part smelly and part obstructed vision.
I chose the faster vehicle but they gave me a bloody slow one so instead of zoom zoom I was looking at people overtaking me and all .__.

Then everyone was going into a massage parlour and I decided to spend an hour in the vicinity instead.
Walking out they were like trying to sell me drinks and I saw coconut (ya they were all on the ground and literal roadside) so I told them “You sell coconuts? Ok. I’ll come back later. Maybe.”
Took a long time to cross the road to a mall and went to a smelly arcade (mostly adults smoking with like 5 kids around) and exchanged tickets for 2 erasers LOL. Really wanted to play basketball but the kids were hogging the machines and when I returned expecting them to be done, I saw that they have claimed a basketball and was playing soccer with it.
Took an even longer time to cross over again.
Got 10 sticks of chicken satay for $1.50 O__O
They asked “Rice?” and I said no and I still got rice? What are they earning??? O__O
Not bad but they’re so skimpy with meat (I understand completely)($1.50 leh, how to hiam) and most of them had only 2 chunks.
Went to get a coconut. They have pushed a punctured cart to the roadside and put some coconuts on it and called it a stall LOL. The flesh was so tender πŸ˜€ the juice wasn’t perfect but it didn’t taste bad. It was also $1.50.

Went to BCS Mall. Found an optometry selling frames with prescription lenses for only $18!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I also found a really cute frosted pink frame but it would take 2 days for it to be done and I was returning to Singapore the next day T_T
Was on the bus and suddenly the front burst into song because it was Rivlyn’s birthday and they had a cake LOL happy birthday Rivlyn!

It was 5pm when the bus left to take everyone to the ferry terminal or their hotels. I was really pissed having to sit in the bus for more than 2 hours when I really want to go to Nagoya Hills and grab some A&W for dinner! Why were we the last? T_T
21st floor at Nagoya Mansions.

Went out and walked in the dark to Nagoya Hills. It was 8pm 😑
Also had to witness something disturbing while I was trying to grab a shot of the mosque and I didn’t even have time to compose or focus anything and we left.
Got myself a kid meal because I wanted an A&W pencil case.
Also upgraded my root beer to a float and got curly fries.
Their chicken is so much better than KFC’s I don’t understand why A&W left Singapore!!!! 😦
Bought a waffle even though I was already pregnant with non-stop feeding and was super full, because my mum swears by A&W’s waffles. What a disappointment having to bite into hard batter which only tasted good at the end when my ice-cream made it soggy…

Went to Hypermart on the hunt for mi goreng πŸ˜€
It was a wall of instant noodles!! I got 10 packs of Indomie’s πŸ˜€
Their Yakult was a tad smaller (why?) but a 5-pack was only 85 cents?!?!?!?! I didn’t buy it. Hahahaha. Why?????

Went back to the hotel by taxi. $5 is a rip-off but it was late. Bathed and slept to the monotonous voice of documentaries (one of the best ways to sleep even though they’re entertaining) some time around midnight after being awake for god knows how long?
I woke up the day before at 5.30pm because I was dreaming I was a Hogwarts student and was involved in a war and waking up at 2.30pm I went back to sleep to resume the great action LOL. Then I couldn’t sleep so I stayed up and only intermittently napped otw to the hotel. Basically I didn’t sleep for the whole of Tuesday and more.

Woke up and heard Marissa in the shower so I was like wth what time is it now? So I checked and it was 6am. Turns out Marissa didn’t know what time it was and didn’t even bother to check HAHAHAHAHA!
Hotel breakfast with Marissa’s colleague who was also staying at the hotel.
Sunnies on toast darn good πŸ˜€ (of course, I brought the toast to the egg station myself)

On the bus to Batam Centre I wanted to take photos of the ‘Welcome to Batam’ sign in the forest but I hesitated and missed everything. I should’ve filmed the beautiful roundabout. Why was my camera inside my bag and not around my neck anyway? :/

Had time to spare before boarding our ferry back and we crossed over to Mega Mall. Marissa wanted to eat KFC but then she was like “aiya we can eat that in Singapore. Let’s eat A&W again.” LOL!
Chicken soup was nice! Lots of chicken chunks and vegetables in it πŸ˜€
God is real.

Back to Singapore.
The end!

Yesterday morning Fiona called me and asked if I had my passport. She wanted me to go to JB today to eat. OF COURSE I WANTED TO. But I have class in the evening and I don’t know how to return to Singapore by myself LOL.
The end (of sad story of the adventure that never happened)!


Spring in Tokyo (Part 10): Tokyo Disneyland

Day 7

Had we planned earlier, we could’ve moved to a place closer to Maihama since we had to take this long route twice for two consecutive days. But no biggie because bento πŸ˜€ I want to buy every bento there is but I can’t 😦
Saw this cutie octopus bowl at Gindaco somewhere in Tokyo station so… I bought it.
Although it was stained with mayonnaise and tartar everywhere T_T it’s too cute!!
It was a bowl of delicious lies. Fake tako (hotdog). Fake takoyaki (delicious potatoes). I swear both of us were fooled into thinking they were takoyaki!!!!! Very delicious soboro don nonetheless πŸ˜€
Continued our journey to Disneyland after yummy breakfast of deceit lol…

We didn’t have to take a monorail to Disneyland but the walk was so pleasant.
The sky was gloomy and I think that contributed to a theme park that was surprisingly not crowded πŸ˜€
Why am I still the only person in colour?? :/
Upon entering, some excited caucasian beamed and said “sumimasen!!” and we both just huh??? LOL he thought it was “hello” and Yuxuan (using new found knowledge) told him “sumimasen” means “excuse me” HAHAHAHA πŸ˜€

First thing we saw was a queue to Mickey! In fact, the whole ground was sprinkled with mascots πŸ˜€
Flowers everywhere πŸ™‚
Took a picture with Fairy Godmother because she had no queue at all (poor thing) but of course!! Her face is immensely creepy T__T Still really funny Yuxuan cried (out of happiness) when she hugged her OMG hahahaha πŸ˜€
Distracted by Tweedledum/Tweedledee… Don’t know how I managed to capture a shot with all faces looking totally high??
Who could care about the little pigs when there’s a little Donald Duck soooooo cute!!!!!
He waddled like a duck too! Not sure if it’s normal diaper baby walk or he’s really good at cosplay at such a young age πŸ™‚
Why can kids get away with lying on the ground yet when I do it people ask me “hobo ah?”
Daisy didn’t give a shit about us T____T I really should have lied about my birthday, get a sticker and get special treatment 😦
Disney marketing game strong.
The day just started and this princess already bought something? My childhood pales looking at the lives of the many kids here!!

(photo stolen from Yuxuan)
Was gonna pass my camera to Yuxuan but her mother offered instead. Yuxuan took this too!
She also knows she’s a princess. They don’t cosplay. They completely transform. Like that baby Donald.
Donald!!!!!!!!!!!! I like Donald Duck but turns out he doesn’t like me 😦 No photos for me 😦

(picture stolen from Yuxuan)
Yuxuan was chasing him as he walked away and he looked into her camera!!!! I happened to photobombed her shot so… I had a picture with Donald! πŸ™‚ *delusional*
Pluto! He was about to walk away so we chased after him… He was like hi and all that then he got distracted by a baby in a stroller and ran away!!!! 😦
But I finally got a picture with him lol. The cons of going to Disneyland when you are no longer a child by age 😦

The bicycle piano!!!!
The pianist (in super cute Easter getup) also behaved like a rabbit, hopping up and down WHILE playing crazy happy tunes.
HELLA COOL!!!!!!!!

Hello MTV and welcome to my crib πŸ™‚
All these people on my driveway!
Duck in my flowerbed!
JK but how wonderful it’d be if I could live here πŸ˜€
Topiary win.

Beautiful mosaic walls retelling the story of Cinderella πŸ™‚
I thought she ran DOWN the stairs though…
Entered this dazzling glass shop called The Glass Slipper, meant for filthy rich people to flaunt their wealth I think.

Was scorning at the crazy price of this castle model and a tourist heard me and LOLed. It’s crazy.

Hippity-Hoppity Springtime!!!!!!!!
They had raincoats on because of the wet weather LOL!
The song was really nice too hahaha πŸ˜€
Marie is too cute!
Minnie waved AT me (I don’t care if there’s a kid behind me ok… it’s me she’s waving to) πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

Castle Carousel.
Thought of Julie Andrew’s carousel horse Jingles at the other Disneyland. I love Julie Andrews πŸ™‚
I tried to take a mirror selfie but it was unsuccessful.
I LOVE the dΓ©cor of the Queen of Hearts Banquet Hall, both inside and out!
The facade of It’s A Small World is so cute!
Walked past it again later just in time for the 15-minute interval πŸ˜€
Wanted to take a video but I was too slow and naaahhhhhhh….
Gadget’s Go Coaster was surprisingly fun despite being made for kids :/

Impressive pulley dΓ©cor that people probably pay no heed.
Intrigued by this little Goofy spinning popcorns πŸ™‚ It’s all the little details that kill me ^__^
Disney’s topiary really are the top πŸ˜€
Space Mountain was really fun!! It’s super fast and seems to go on for very long. The lighting was cool but after a while I died X__X
Grand Circuit Raceway I found super fun but Yuxuan disliked it…
I think it’s because it’s my first time behind the wheel (albeit fake V___V) after 1 year 2 months 3 days since getting my licence -____-
This was my second ride where Yuxuan became a parent (like Amanda’s father lol) who takes photos for me hahaha πŸ˜€
Reckless driver lol.

Haunted Mansion is one of my favourites πŸ˜€ We all know I’m a pussy at horror stuff and I was shitting bricks getting into the buggy. Turns out it was a joy ride with the most spectacular visuals nowhere near creepy! The buggy goes slowly and rotates you to the appropriate scene of focus. Holography everywhere!!!!!!! πŸ˜€
My happiness doesn’t end when the ride does because it was even funnier at the exit!!!!!!
The funniest headstones EVER. We were the only ones laughing, possibly because the bulk of visitors are Japanese?
Ray N Carnation – Reincarnation hahaha
Rustin Peese – Rest in peace hahahaha
Sue Pernatural – Supernatural hahahahaha
I. L. Beback – I’ll be back HAHAHAHAHAHAHA
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA I had a great laugh standing there regardless of all the stares πŸ˜€

(photo stolen from Yuxuan)

6 Goofys. I don’t know how a group of friends can agree to buying a bright orange sweater and bright green beanie? Do they wear them only in Disney or…? Anyway, while I’m obsessed with bindis, the Japanese are sticking stickers on their faces and sometimes gems and rhinestones all over their faces haphazardly. I need to live in Japan???
Lunch at Pan Galactic Pizza Port!
Got a chicken? mushroom? tomato? calzone. It tasted ok…
No idea what these were but I bought them for the container #marketingbait. Yummy little mochis? with vanilla, chocolate and strawberry fillings.
I can’t remember if we took Splash Mountain (I have a vague impression we did).
Confused with Big Thunder Mountain where Yuxuan lost her week-old iPhone 6.
Anyway, after understanding how the lockers were not really useful as you have to bring all your belongings on board rides, I brought a tote bag to carry all my stuff on top of my super useful mackintosh. Yuxuan just put her phone in her pocket and her phone flew out mid-ride?
TIP: Don’t rent lockers if you don’t have to

Rode Beaver Brothers Explorer Canoes because I really wanted to boat. Please don’t. Arms would ache just trying to turn out -____-
Pirates of the Caribbean… great series, terrible ride. The most boring ride going at the slowest pace forcing us to admire the workmanship of the puppets… And smelled like chlorine -___-
By now you should also realise that my ride sequence is all jumbled up because we browsed in orderly fashion but the Fast Passes are a mess.

Woody! Bastard kept turning the other way avoiding my direction as I followed him about 300Β° before he saw me -____-
And finally accepted my presence πŸ˜€

(photo stolen from Yuxuan)
Jessie was busy signing some kid’s autograph book and Yuxuan tried to stealth a selfie (with success) but she turned around and gestured us to wait (but she never did bother about us after that). See guys, all you parents please bring your children to Disney if you can because when you’re not a little baby you are nothing to them!!!!
Really wanted to ride the Mark Twain Riverboat but we gave it a miss as we were pressed for time…

We went to the visitor lounge area to report her phone loss and then to where she believed she lost her phone. Then she waited there in the ultra cold wind while they looked for it.
I went to eat at Queen of Hearts Banquet Hall. It was so bold of us to just part ways with literally zero form of communications (she had no phone and the pocket wifi was in the locker) but we reunited when I paid for my food.
Ordered more things than I could eat and Yuxuan refused to share!!!!!!!!!!!!
Roasted chicken! Not bad πŸ™‚
At the end of the line the server asked if I wanted rice or bread. She didn’t say it like it was an optional thing. So I was like uhhh bread. -____- I wished I didn’t uhhh bread.
When I saw this, I burst out laughing (mind you, I was alone in the queue) and decided to get it since it wasn’t that big nor expensive. About 5″ diameter for like $13 or so, so why not!!! It looked and tasted super fresh too!!!!! It was really delicious albeit too creamy to solo without discarding cream (Yuxuan wouldn’t even take ONE bite for me).
“Happy Unbirthday” is pretty much the best phrase yet. I believe in celebrating EVERY day and with cake (although I don’t practise this yet (I will someday)) because every day is important, and Happy Unbirthday is just about the best excuse to eat cake on a day not your birthday!!! I love it πŸ˜€

Hurried to get a spot for “Once Upon A Time“, the castle projection πŸ˜€
We found a really good spot, everyone was seated and the view was unobstructed except for a stupid umbrella.
Then suddenly, there was an announcement that it would be cancelled due to the weather T________T
SERIOUSLY????????? Nobody gives a shit about the wet floor!! Then we left T____T
Yuxuan got a coffee and an announcement came again. It was a glimmer of hope in all the sorrow of the gloomy doomy night. The show would resume in 15 minutes if the weather improves!!!!!!!!!
Ran back right quick and everyone was standing T___T
!!!!!!!! Ganchiong cannot focus -__-
So I turned to using my phone instead. What a terrible idea to get all the grains .___. (also because my memory card of both cameras were on the brink of full capacity).
I was going to film the whole thing and somewhere around the Alice in Wonderland part, my camera beeped because it had no more memory T___T So I deleted the great clip I sacrificed my arm for (I held the thing up for a good 10 minutes at least) to make space for the fireworks.

You’re welcome πŸ™‚ Also thought the Beast scene was cool with all the lightning and I got lucky with some pyrotechnics although it wasn’t the end yet.
Everyone promptly exited the compound when it’s shut off. Amazingly orderly and quietly too.

How do people exit Disneyland T___T How do people leave this magical land of magic T___T
You can’t quite see me but… ❅❅❅ LET IT GO ❅ LET IT GO ❅❅❅
Yes, I like Elsa. Because she’s hella cool. I also like Rapunzel but… Elsa speaks Hokkien and it’s the best thing ever. Behold the best parody of that overplayed sickening song!!!!!!!!!!!!

I completely lost it after the part where she stepped on the ground and the snowflake appeared and laughed until I teared. Elsa ki chu show I died again. I love this so much.
Anyway, I think I See The Light from Tangled is an even better song that should have been overplayed on radio instead.

I wrote and sent a postcard to myself from Disneyland too!! πŸ˜€

Received both a few days after my return ^_______^

I hope everyone goes to Disneyland/DisneySea and send me postcards just because I get a kick out of it and appreciate snail mail. I can dream on.

Ok. Then we went back and I should think Yuxuan got supper and I didn’t because she ate nothing and I ate enough for 3. There’s one more post left!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Spring in Tokyo (Part 8): Omotesando & Shibuya

Flickr #casiaintokyo
✿ Part 1 ✿ Part 2 ✿ Part 3 ✿ Part 4 ✿ Part 5 ✿ Part 6 ✿ Part 7 ✿ Part 9 ✿ Part 10 ✿ Part 11 ✿

Day 4 (continued)

Technically, it’s Day 5 because we were loitering about Shibuya past midnight when we returned from Odaiba.
It was 2am when we were hungry looking for supper because our dinner was sort of lame.
There were quite a few stalls still open and we went into Sushizanmai πŸ™‚
Ordering in Japanese a bunch of stuff was quite tough… especially for two separate persons… but whatever nonsense I spoke went understood so it’s ok πŸ™‚
Tamago! The chef used a huge slab of tamagoyaki and wrapped it in the most peculiar style! Then he cut it in half, and put each on both our plates -___- #tiopian but the egg:rice ratio was good!! πŸ˜€
Tako! Yum πŸ˜€
I didn’t order sashimi like I said I would… it’s a branch from the super famous Tsukiji and what if I couldn’t ingest the raw fish T_T I was sitting right in front of the chef 😦 how can I spit it out if I couldn’t eat it????
Kani! Said we didn’t want wasabi but he just put a dollop on each. Wasabi looked really different than what we’re used to seeing. It was dark green!!! At first it tasted good (I usually don’t like the taste of wasabi) and it didn’t have that spicy thing that goes up your nose. When I ate the second piece, it went ALL OVER MY FACE. I nearly died it was SO spicy T____T Whatever I ate afterwards just kept tasting like wasabi T___T but it’s really awesome wasabi πŸ™‚
Amaebi! Couldn’t taste this because it was like shrimp-textured wasabi… T_T
Very silky smooth and loaded with lots of ingredients πŸ˜€

Walking back to the apartment and saw some graffiti getting done for the store or something.
Singaporean graffiti appreciation always much more because we only see commissioned ones .__.

Day 5

Wore the awesome scarf thing I bought in Harajuku!!! πŸ˜€
Walked to Harajuku because we figured out the shortest route walking from our apartment! It was literally a straight road! We stayed in between Shibuya and Harajuku! Omg all that time wasted the day before because I suck at maps -___-
Walked around Harajuku shopping and finding lunch but for some reason there was no food place in sight…
Bought a watch on impulse (I should sell it), and was so amused they gave my paper bag a raincoat!!!!!!!! That’s so considerate and totally cute!!! Then I realised it was a norm and every paper bag in everyone’s hands was donning a raincoat. I love Japan!!!!
Harajuku’s tourist information centre is soooo cute!! Went in to ask for directions to a yakiniku restaurant and the staff was so friendly and helpful, even though I ended up asking a lot of other questions too, since she spoke English and I won’t know when I can find such assistance πŸ™‚

Had lunch at Seiko-en, the cheaper one out of the two yakiniku restaurants in the vicinity, the other being Gyu-Kaku πŸ™‚
Opted for buffet but we couldn’t eat a lot so it was quite a waste of money :/
This was the starter plate with a standard meat selection.
Those half-moon slices are gyΕ«tan (beef tongue), which I’d wanted to try. They are actually really yummy!! πŸ˜€ Tender and more lean than other parts I think.

After lunch, we split up because Yuxuan wanted to look for boots while I wanted to look for some ulu coffee! Thank god she let me have the pocket Wi-Fi otherwise I’d be lost and meet up an hour later without any coffee -___-
One hour wasn’t enough time to shop at Omotesando, so I went to look for Omotesando Koffee with the map I got at the information centre.
On the way there, I was really lost because it became streets after streets of residences behind Omotesando Hills. So I asked a deliveryman when he walked past me, who so very kindly showed me the way, although he walked super fast while pushing a trolley loaded with huge stuff.
He left me at one street and told me to turn left.
So I found this crowd at this beautiful old house and I couldn’t tell if Omotesando Koffee was actually here. I tried to Google but the maps failed me every single time I tried to use it. So I turned to Foursquare and it was actually the closest location to me… So I just joined the queue :/
The queue moved a bit after a few minutes before I saw the shop’s sign. It’s so minimalist and small it was obstructed by the people in the queue -____- after seeing this, I calmed down LOL.
The dΓ©cor was so beautiful!! I wasn’t bored standing in line for 30 minutes to order a small cup of supposedly Tokyo’s best coffee.
The little garden would’ve been so much more beautiful if it weren’t for the rain! But if it weren’t raining, I’d never get this shot because there’d be people on the bench right?
I’ve never been so into any shop’s dΓ©cor so much! Or I could be really bored standing in line. I doubt it’s the latter.
Barista spoke fluent English and for the first time I didn’t have to try so hard and sound illiterate!!! πŸ˜€
Ordered a Baileys cappuccino.
I should’ve ordered Omotesando Koffee -___- I mean it was named after the shop! Or the shop was named after the coffee?
I liked everything about this place!!!
I couldn’t get a good photo of it????
The coffee was really aromatic and smooth T_T even better than my favourite Oriole Coffee!! ;____;
The cup’s prints are also so nice ;___;
It’s coffee worth waiting 30 minutes for. Also, if I come here next time I’ll buy 3 cups for myself because the cup is actually really small.
Was thinking of getting a cup for Yuxuan after I tasted it but the queue was even longer than when I joined it and I had 5 minutes to walk back to our arranged meeting spot. I was a little late getting back :/
Passed this cool trailer (is it a shop??? It says open!) walking back to Omotesando Hills.

Walked along Cat Street back to Shibuya because the map says it leads us to Shibuya. What the heck, we emerged at the mosaic Astro Boy tunnel!!! We could’ve learnt about it sooner T_T
Bought this pair of boots from Scrapbook (Jeanasis) πŸ˜€ I walked in because I always liked the designs at Jeanasis. Finances stopped me from buying more lol…

I really like all these mosaic graffiti I see so often!! Found out the artist is Invader πŸ˜€
Walked around Shibuya looking for dinner. Looking for Yoshinoya, which we somehow just cannot find anywhere although we’ve seen it before. Yuxuan asked some strangers in English while I was looking for non-busy people to ask for directions -____- I have failed. It was right across the street, just really inconspicuous T_T
I got the gyu-sukinabe-zen because Singapore doesn’t have it.
It’s damn delicious!!!!!! And affordable!!!!!!!! I want to live in Japan!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Continued shopping till most of the shops were closed. We found GU at the very last minute and I liked everything there!!! GU needs to open in Singapore!!!!! There’s more than enough Uniqlo outlets in Singapore already please bring GU here!!!!!! Hurriedly tried on clothes and bought some before it closed!!

After showering we went out looking for 2am supper. Why do we eat supper every day? Hahahaha I think we are just obsessed with combini food πŸ˜›
Bought mini ramen to try πŸ™‚
Turned out quite disappointing 😦 Maybe Japanese cup noodles taste good only when you are not eating them in the country with even better food everywhere!

Ok that’s all for the Sunday shopping!! Can’t wait to blog about the next two days! Disney!!!!!!! ^____^
