Some more stuff

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!!!!!


Shiok.


Cafรฉ & 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ $$$$

NICE

NICE

NICE
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.




NICE!!!

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?” ๐Ÿ˜€ 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 ๐Ÿ˜€


The cajun fries and death cream GOOODOODOODODODODDDDD!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€


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

Christmas turkey ham sandwich at Asanoya Bakery. Love that place!! We were working on our first orders already ๐Ÿ˜€

ASH!!!!!!!

ASH IS SO CUTE!!!!!

ASH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Hahaha I need to order more of these Bunmeido goodies ๐Ÿ˜€


Zion mayor in da house

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.


Christmas.

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))

Last 3 Months of Year 3 & Gan Yakitori

I don’t even know how to begin lol. Just gonna put all my Instagram posts here and some of those from my camera. Backwards too, so the sequence might be quite incoherent.
It’s going to very long. After all, 3 months is about 90 days and that’s rather long. Maybe you’d want to scroll to the part about Gan Yakitori. It’s delicious.


Watching One Piece while having dinner in school after studying lol.


Lou yu sheng with Ms April Ng one day because we bought her abalone as a token of appreciation for helping us with FYP, so she got us to lou hei together. I’m pretty sure she didn’t eat a slice of abalone at all.

This one she made was the most delicious yu sheng I’ve ever eaten, and for the first time I actually ate everything and not just pick out the crackers (I don’t like sashimi (yet)), because she left out all the crappy stuff that are usually found in the standard ones like ginger.
She made it very Japanese too so that’s a plus point lol. In it were lettuce, radish, carrot, seaweed, jellyfish, abalone, salmon sashimi, ebiko and sesame dressing. Everything is edible much unlike the standard ones. And jellyfish. Genius.


Bought these Hacchando reito mukan, which are frozen and peeled mandarin oranges, simply because the packaging was super cute and it was 2 boxes for $5 and a lot cheaper than its original price.
It tastes like dried apricot and then it became orange ice-cream and as it thaws it tastes more and more like crispy orange juice. (I copied this description from my caption because it is the most accurate depiction of this thing ever.) Anyway, I think I was supposed to let it thaw before eating it but I don’t know??? I still have a box in the freezer lol.


Had dinner at Gan Yakitori one day after studying, sometime in February a week or so before CNY. Was at the Star Vista one (in case there are other outlets) and the service was atrocious!!!!! Inattentive as hell and they kind of just forget about you until you walk up to them or something. I wasn’t even shown to my table. I asked for a table and this staff acknowledged and just turned and walked so I followed thinking she was bringing me to my table, but she just went to attend to another customer?????
So I just hovered around cluelessly until another staff made me sit at the counter. I was waiting for the menu then. I waited for 5 minutes with intermittent waving for attention. 0 attention. So I walked to the nearest staff who was like 1 metre behind me at the cashier. Wow. Thanks. So I got my menu and had to wait about a minute after I decided and called for many staff who all ignored me, before someone actually noticed me.
Then, I waited about 20 minutes for my food to be cooked. One of the items was served wrongly too. It’s not even full house yet so I don’t even want to imagine that scenario. If you are dying of starvation you ought to skip this place.
Except when you do put the food into your mouth, it’s like heaven. So if you don’t care so much about service then this place is no problem at all. I would return (with someone else paying for me because it’s goddamn unaffordable lol) just because the food is so amazing, now that I’m prepared to serve myself and bring some form of entertainment having been through this experience.
It’s like all the staff there know how good the food is that customers very well would overlook the terrible service, so they just don’t give a shit about the service anyway lol.

Tsukune (chicken meatball)

Momo (chicken thigh) (right? It’s thigh, right?)

Toumorokoshi (corn)
These yakitori were so darn delicious. Not overly charred, juicy and tender meat, super on-point seasoning and heaven sauce.

Also ordered oyakodon because 3 yakitori can’t keep me alive overnight (I think).
It’s nicer than at most places, but it didn’t overthrow Ootoya’s (thank god because I don’t have to wait so long nor tolerate being ignored there). What it lacked (that Ootoya has) was the charred and smoky taste of the chicken and the near-raw eggs that I fell in love with. This one had a distinct hint of ginger too (I kinda very hate ginger) so lol you lose.

Oh but they have this egg drop chicken soup that came with the oyakodon and it’s really refreshing and clear and shiok. Maybe it’s a tactic to wash away the bad taste from their service.


Was really sian of studying one day so instead of going home to studying even more I went loitering around and took time to explore Tokyu Hands. So many awesome things that I just want to buy for no reasons. Thank god I do not have the luxury to do things like that. Ok, I still do things like that but with a budget LOL.
Look at that brilliant (and cute) rice strainer I bought!!!! There’s a bigger one for noodles but it’s more expensive so I’m like nope. I don’t even cook rice often and I intend to use it for my noodles, which I always drop into the basin trying to decant from the pot lol.

The tiger mask which did not show any instant results because my face was beyond hope going through projects and FYP and exams. Very fun though. $15 for 2. Oh my gosh, I really really need to know the prices of regular masks before I splurge unknowingly on novelties.

Fuwatoro tenshin han set at Osaka Ohsho. Took a very long time to decide what to order because everything was those safe, familiar food that I am always inclined to order. So I settled on one of their specialties.

The egg was really fluffy (as promised) but what the hell? It’s crazily overpriced for mere rice (wasn’t even very nice) and egg drenched in some starchy soup!! Even the kaki fuyong in school tasted better at half the price!! with chicken and extra chicken!!

But you should really eat their gyoza. They’re famous for them and of course when the skin is so crispy and the insides are just mmmmmmmmmmm ๐Ÿ™‚ I will go there and get the big plate of gyoza next time lol.

My absolute favouritest thing about Isetan Japanese fairs is the Hokkaido gelato pop-up stall.

Because there’s this heaven fruit flavour better known by its common name melon. Even on saddest of days this would cheer your soul up man. But of course I’m always happy (even if my face don’t show) somehow (maybe because I’m always eating stuff without guilt unlike the many stupid people everywhere who find eating a sin (how about you guys don’t eat and die and tell me about it)) so it just further makes me smile lol you’re welcome, soul.
Anyway, it was already there days before so that cone was a repeat visit.

See? I had the awesome thing when I first spotted it. I also cherish it more because it’s not always there.

They laughed at me when I went back for more right after finishing the first cone. But I tried the Yubari soft serve since I’ve never seen it before. Gelato wins still (for texture) although the soft serve had a slightly stronger taste.

Also realised that they put up my Ringo Work shrine only during CNY period (otherwise it’s always in limited quantities in secluded shelves) mostly because they have this GXFC hamper thing (that nobody ever buys for me although it has equal importance to me as angpows lol).

Also saw super cute Hello Kitty tea!! But the price is so… I’ll have water instead.

And while I’m no fan of microwaved food, I absolutely love (unfortunately microwaved) bentos and most of the time I visit Isetan at night so they’re usually discounted and lol yummy.

Oishii baby senbei balls (I always forget its name cos it’s so long) I love.
Ok, I checked. It’s called Kotsubukko. Trust me, eat this.


Clementi 881 coffee shop’s awesome duck rice.

Redring wanton mee without the wanton but with cutlet rice and char siew because these two are so yummy.

Also, I don’t like the new design of the Ben & Jerry’s pints. It’s not ugly but I prefer the old one.


Ootoya forever.

Grilled horse mackerel was not bad but smelled kinda fishy. Worst part was the billions of bones I had to pick out because I forgot that fishes are full of bones (mega hate) since I only reduce my fish intake to fillets. Took a super long time to eat it and my fingers were cramped from prolonged use of chopsticks. I took so long that I was the last customer before closing.

Bae chawanmushi ๐Ÿ˜€

Yummy peach parfait!! I only paid for the dessert because my loyalty card was filled with stamps and I was entitled to a free set meal!


First time I had the chicken pizza at Wala Wala. Really yummy although parts of the chicken bits were damn fat and ewww…

Truffle fries!! Their old menu potato stuff were so dry but it has all changed. With the sacrifice of the bae dory chunks, that is.


I honestly love the chicken hor fun at Makan Place. I’d go back to school when it reopens so that I can eat all these stuff.

Tried making tea jelly with English breakfast tea. Not as nice as with hojicha.



I wish for white bread to be banned from being sold in place of the pink and green one that’s meant to be there!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ


Watched Cats!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ My favourite songs are Mr Mistoffelees and Skimbleshanks, and they were both delivered so beautifully live! I thought Munkustrap and Rum Tum Tugger had super nice voices.

The lighting was amazing and at the beginning, when the cats all ran to the stage from the back, ONE OF THEM TAPPED ME ON THE SHOULDER AND STARED AT ME!!!!!! YES, AISLE SEATS AREN’T THAT BAD ANYMORE!!!!!
There was a run a few years back, perhaps 2002 or something, and when I saw the trailers I thought it was so creepy because I’m so afraid of cats (I still am, a little), but I knew nothing of the beauty of arts.
Practically no one around me had interests in arts because it’s viewed as those expensive, useless, no-future sort of thing. I yearned to learn piano and ballet and whatever everyone else was unhappily forced to learn by their parents as a kid, because I was genuinely interested but was never granted lessons. So now I’m this really useless person with no talent or support, who is encouraged to do something with my life (now that I’m an adult) but I have nothing I’m good at. Except maybe I’m funny and nice and friendly and (please fill in good impressions of me). Anyway, thank god I went to watch Wicked and now I so love musicals (they are so far beyond the quality of school productions).

Cabbed to West Coast Park after the show on very short notice to meet these people. MY FIRST MIDNIGHT SUPPER!!!!
It was also Wen Wei’s birthday and I knew. I wanted to wish him only before I left but I forgot -____- so I had to text. I’m sorry.

Because I spent $18 on transport, I couldn’t afford a meal LOL. But the twister fries with ice-cream pair beats any McMeal hands down.



Tenderfresh has a restaurant near school. It’s Halal. That is so important since one of my group mates is Muslim. I ate this same chicken penne on 2 consecutive days because it’s yummy and I didn’t know what to choose from its extensive menu.

The BBQ wings were so-so…


Met up with Marissa at Gastronomia before she left for Bandung to do some art stuff for a month.

Favourite salted caramel crodo!!

Soy latte! The coffee here is really good but slightly thin.

Slept over at Hazel’s the day before the FYP presentation, rehearsing and I don’t really know what we were doing staying over. I slept 4 hours, as usual. But we had the last slot (8th presentation) and I didn’t take a nap throughout because I’d wake up groggy and I wanted to watch the others.

We were almost late because the bus broke down on our way to school. So in desperation we hired 2 Uber Executives (they were the only ones available in the vicinity) and arrived in style (that is with the unnecessary expense of shitload of money) in Mercedes-Benz S-Class. We were carrying lots of stuff so I crawled in and out of the car clumsily. Hate pencil skirts.

I was the AV person because I was responsible for the slides (the clients loved it hahahahaha thanks a billion Keynote!!!) and when it was my turn, despite rehearsing perfectly an hour ago in a store room behind the lecture hall, I messed up for a while but I straightened up soon. Worst. Anyway, it was a terrifying experience and one of the first time I have slept so little in my life.


Saw this beautiful butterfly one morning. Think it just emerged from its cocoon. Nobody else noticed it though. Nobody notices things very much at all.

A security guard walked in on us taking selfies with the visualiser at a hijacked lecture hall. Because they had to lock it up at 8pm. We hijacked lecture halls every day closer to the presentation day because we had to rehearse. That was why I started hijacking classrooms to study in after this was over.


Clearance sushi at the supermarket.

Bolognese fries at school.


Hojicha kanten forever.

Best combo ever.

Very cute maneki Hello Kitty.

Found the whistle thingy at Daiso so I bought it again because I don’t know where my old one went.


Bought two dozens of Milo although I still had many at home because I could get a balloon.

Prata Planet taste better now than it did a few years ago!

Popcorn chicken from school. My friends didn’t even know school had them. And so yummy they were.

P1180251
P1180252
I bought myself a birthday cake from Japan online. I didn’t know online shopping has no limits anymore.
P1180271
I ordered the cake from Bunmeido at Rakuten!!!
P1180269
P1220276
I bought it because it was personalised and came with free shipping and it was $10 off at that point.
P1220272
The Castella cake arrived in about 2 weeks and would expire in about 2-3 weeks as well. That was way before my birthday then. LOL. So I ate it anyway. 2 people wished me happy birthday and I got such a kick out of it hahahahaha!!!


Cereal fish is the best thing mixed vegetable rice stalls at coffee shops can offer!! So delicious!!!!

School’s chicken hor fun really became an addiction of sorts.

Fruits prepared by Hazel’s mum when we stayed over to rush out a presentation for a project that was due the next day. Her mum picks the sweetest fruits ever!! I am honing my skills on that aspects lol.

Found these amazing faux leather culottes at Zara on sale!! I love them ๐Ÿ™‚




First time encountering the new menu at Wala Wala and had to try their truffle fries.


Caption was “What’s your horoscope sign?” “Kuih Bahulu.”
I thought it was hilarious!!!!! (I still do) (please laugh) (it’s funny)


Went out to buy dinner one day although I didn’t want to because I was studying or writing report. Really had so little time then but I had to go out. What’s worse, my mum tasked me to look for some goddamn nasi lemak that didn’t even have a shop there. She didn’t even know which coffee shop!! So I darted around 6 coffee shops pissed off as hell before I ran home. Cos it was so humid and I really needed to do my schoolwork and was so pissed off with all the people walking around me at snail speed!!! Was having a lot of difficulty breathing too so the moment I went home I crashed in front of a fan and turned on the aircon. Goddamn country. I’d rather spend the same hour taking an examination than go through that again.


Cup meat sauce fettuccine!! Actually was drawn to it by Pooh, then I realised it wasn’t regular cup ramen! Genius and simple design for draining water (and also the different adhesive for each half) is just so super thoughtful. 5 minutes and doesn’t taste bad at all! Definitely better than my (palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy, there’s vomit on his sweater already) mom’s spaghetti. I think it was $3-4. It’s impossible not to worship the Japanese.
Accurate opinion from Instagram caption.

Giant pomegranate!!



When I got the book, I couldn’t read it yet because of schoolwork. I read it anyway and I’m still T____T because it’s sad and funny and so good!! For once, the movie follows the book exactly (except the ending, the movie brought it to a proper end that made me cry) and I think this is really what a good book and good movie should be: funny, sad, accurate, capable of messing up your heart. I just bawled when they took away the tree T_____T Go watch the movie, everyone!! You’re welcome.


Lynette was finally free to go out!! We went to have dinner at Yoshimaru, where she wanted to go since forever but she has a curfew!!

Tried the Madagascan vanilla cone at Sunday Folks and I didn’t like it. Flavour wasn’t strong and the dried flower chip tasted salty and sour, which I thought was like freeze-dried banana but rotten.

Had really terrible skin the whole of Year 3 because of internship and the overload of schoolwork and projects and FYP. This A* friend decided to be my concealer. Thanks brooooooo ๐Ÿ™‚

Met Marissa after Lynette left because I didn’t know Marissa was working that day!! Then chatted with her parents and then she went to get her fortune read. My skin… omg.
Anyway, both of them were wearing the same thing!!! Grey pullover over a white shirt and black skirt. As if Singapore wasn’t humid enough.


1 plain 1 egg at Prata Planet. Any place that makes decent plain and egg prata can win my heart.

Many times I went to Blooie’s Roadhouse for dinner with Hazel and Keyang, as they used to work there.

Seafood pizza. Normal.

Cajun chicken Caesar salad was not bad! The chicken was really good ๐Ÿ™‚


Ootoya. Again.

Egg was more overcooked than I’d like but still yummy.

Bae chawanmushi.

Anmitsu maccha was only $3 and so tasty!! ๐Ÿ˜€




Teacher was so adamant about having a video recording. And he only accepted submissions in hard copy. Most difficult and optional teacher to me ever. Bought a new printer too!

My favourite version of me is when I look at the price tags and ignore them, and load up on snacks for myself!! ๐Ÿ˜€


Spent extra money on Puccho because they came with Kumamon toys. Never thought they would turn out so disfigured.

I need a bento maker in my life.

Bought this onigiri from Isetan too and it was so yummy even though it was cold T___T I love Japanese food!

Loong Fatt Tau Sar Piah the king.

Plain Vanilla‘s always out of my favourite hazelnut cupcake so

salted caramel and

dark chocolate ganache.

Took food and culture as one of my elective modules. I really shouldn’t take something I love as a graded thing because it damages my relationship LOL. Should have taken forex so I can make money. Anyway, one of the assignment was a food trail. And we chose a damn difficult country to research on – Sweden.
P1080233
Went to Fika Cafรฉ as it’s the only Swedish establishment other than Ikea that we know exists in Singapore. Researching online was so tough because everything’s in a foreign language or they are just not enough information available. The relief teacher thought our group’s presentation was interesting.
Everything there was so overpriced.
P1080236
Champis is the first soft drink in Sweden. This one tiny can costed like $8 if I’m not wrong.
P1080223
Tasted like fizzy apple juice -____-
P1080225
Korvstroganoff is sausage stew with rice.
P1080227
Sausage was yummy. The salad dressing is so Idk??? Fermented???
P1080229
Just like this tunnbrรถdsrulle. Before the waiter could set this dish on the table, I was like omg what’s that stench. So I went nearer to the stuff and sniffed. Died. Of course I had to try it for the assignment but I didn’t go back for more.
P1080232
It’s a thin bread wrapped around sausage with Bostongurka. Bostongurka is the culprit of the smell and tasted like the kiamcai but worse. The rest got accustomed to the smell and thought it was acceptable after but I couldn’t feel the same even with one more bite.
P1080230
Kรถttbullar och potatis is basically the well-known meatballs with potatoes. Meatballs were damn good but remember I said this place is crazy expensive? You’d be better off at Ikea.
P1080234
Dessert is pannkakor med bรคr och grรคdde, which is pancake with cream and ice-cream but tasted more like crepes.


Bought Menicon Miru the day after I stumbled upon a little advertisement of it on a Japanese magazine. I checked out the lenses and was so impressed by the design and practicality of it, I bought it although I wasn’t a frequent user of lenses.
After trying it though, I wanted to sign up for membership but I have no money T___T and don’t use lenses often enough to have reasons to splurge like that T____T
It is so comfortable, many a times I forget that I’m wearing lenses and forget to remove them.

The design is so sleek and hygienic and so convenient to carry in my wallet in case I need improved vision. I love it. Please check them out.
I went to Paris Miki at Liang Court to get them and the staff there, especially Nisa, are by far the best service providers of all optometrists ever.


Roast chicken burger at The Rotisserie.

Prata Planet but uncle spilled curry on my prata ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

On New Year’s Eve, I had to go down to Brewerkz to take the videos for project. Yvonne so very kindly treated us to lunch although she didn’t have to.

Went to Starbucks to do up some work because I had time to kill before the countdown.
Liang Court’s atrium had some Japanese fair so on the way back from the restrooms, I went to take a look. And sampled some too because the staff gave me them.

These fuji apples were $6 each but so damn sweet and juicy T_T

Shizuoka mikans were at first sour but afterwards tasted like honey T_____T
I wanted to buy some but I wasn’t going home anytime soon so I cri.
I went to Robertson Quay looking for food. But as usual, nothing was going to open until dinner time. So I had to wait. I was also starving and late for the party. So I just went into the first restaurant I walked past that was already open because waiting 30 minutes would kill me right after I failed looking for a yakitori restaurant lol.
PC310211
Beef kaminabe at Sugisawa Japanese Restaurant.
PC310214
Yummy but it’s expensive T_T Probably because it’s dinner price T__T and the sad thing is that it’s not full of ingredients like other nabe dishes cos the paper is small or something T___T

Favourite pistachio loaded with massive amounts of pistachio chunks in the middle of the scoop (โ—•โ€ฟโ—•) Was thinking if I got run over by a car while crossing the road I’d cry not for my injury but for the loss of my ice-cream.
My Instagram captions are usually better than those on my posts. Ok, not always but they are real-time and accurate. I love Haato & Co. so much.
Then I went to Keyang’s house. As I’ve already had dinner, and everyone else was having theirs when I arrived, I fought using lightsabers with his youngest brother. It went on for 2 hours T____T I was never that tired the whole year I think T_____T But it was fun.

So I finally got a chance to rest when I sat down and played mahjong LOL.

Countdown with the TV. And drinking games. I joined Amirah with green tea LOL.
Then after the drinking games were over, we continued with mahjong until late. Tried to sleep at 3am or something but I was the only one who couldn’t get to sleep. We left when the first buses started operating. But we shared a cab to MRT stations convenient for us instead.
Of course, I was famished at 6am when my last meal was at 7pm.

Went to get myself a McMeal. And bought one more hash brown for the trip home. I really would have gotten 10 if they weren’t so expensive!!!


Loved this the instant I saw it. But I didn’t buy because I sensed a sale coming and it came a few days after. That’s when I bought it. Yay.

Roasted chicken crepe at Marchรฉ with Marissa. Yummy but small T_T Also, we were sitting in the dark T_T Cos it was very crowded and bad seats were all we have.

So I got one chicken wing to make up for the smallness of the crepe and the guy was like “I give you one for free” then I said I only wanted one and he said “never mind, just take it” so I thanked him. It’s normal. And it was late. Maybe the reason for his charity but I doubt so.

Awfully Chocolate. I hope they don’t ever change. I’ll be so devastated if their standards were to drop due to expansion.


Shabu shabu gyuniku ramen at Yoshimaru with Edna on very short notice.
Because I could get 2 bowls at the price of 1. I was just dialling everyone on my contact list, until Edna woke up and accepted my invitation LOL.

She gave me KitKats and unsheathed the peals of laughter buried within me.
Edna: I went to church and the pastor (I heard pasta) was like tsk-
Me: Why? Not nice?
Edna: He is like so aggressive…
OMG ;____; ROFL
Edna: eh this construction site… What are they building here sia
Me: *thoughtfully* oh I think it’s a building
;_____; omg laughters I miss because of stress in school.


Gyudon at Yoshinoya. Overheard a foreigner exclaiming outside Yoshinoya: “Wow! This is like McDonald’s but Japanese style!” ๐Ÿ˜€

This is the super delicious tiramisu Hazel made for me. I love it to bits ;___; It’s not even a biased judgment, it’s really damn bae.

PC250134
Kushiyaki bento with takikomi gohan at Tampopo Deli.

Microwaved bentos always taste great.

Godiva‘s soft serve!!

Tastes like super rich and thick chocolate milk but better ๐Ÿ™‚

Yummy baumkuchen from Juccheim ๐Ÿ™‚

I love the biscuits they give because they’re cute and yummy and seasonal ๐Ÿ™‚
PC250141
Bunch of cakes from Flor Patisserie! I think the mushroom one (I forgot what it’s called T_T) was the yummiest.

A la carte buffet with shabu shabu items and others like ebi fry, gyoza, shishamo. These were so-so.

The mushrooms were huge!!!!

Not kidding at all.

My mum was like “Can I have 10 prawns?” because when it first came it came in a pair and she was like ?????? (She loves seafood and prawn especially lol)
PC240128
Making a reservation on hungrygowhere entitled me to a free plate of Wagyu beef. So fat till I had to pull off some bits before I ate them.
PC240130
Milk pudding.
Overall really yummy and affordable for a buffet I’d say.


Tried making lasagna but boiling it wrecked it like hell so it looked more like German pasta. T_T

XXL chicken from Shihlin.

Bae strawberry cheesecake parfait from Snaffles.


Cutest Gudetama stamps on Line Camera but they’re hard to use lol.
PC190089
Beef udon at good old Tamoya. I think it’s better to get the normal ones because it’s more economical and the broth isn’t too masked by the meat’s flavour.

PB264298
Frequented Brewerkz so much because we were doing a project on them.
PC180064
My favourite food of all time is this soba noodle salad with chicken. Everything is sooooo yummy in this humongous bowl!!! ;____; I loved it so much, I ordered it every time I had a meal there. Yes, so I didn’t really eat anything else other than the sides.
PC190072
Truffle fries were not bad! I literally love seeing potato skin on fries. They tend to be the best parts too ๐Ÿ™‚
PB264367
Was at the kitchen taking photos and omg this burger looked sooooo good!!!!! I still ordered soba salad lol I’m sorry it’s really so yummy.

I don’t like beer ๐Ÿ˜ฆ but many people love the beer there so go if you love beer. Or dislike. Because you can eat soba salad.

Went to a charity gig at Blu Jaz Cafe.


Photo with Daphne Khoo!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

NATHAN HARTONO!!!!!! I’ve been loving this man’s voice since about 10 years ago!!!


Bought my dream mackintosh! The most expensive garment I’ve ever bought yet. Even though it was the cheapest one I could find online!!! And it was too big for me -___- But it’s ok.

Dimsum from Hong Ho Phang Hong Kong Tim Sum. So yummy!! Good chee cheong fun like these are hard to find now ๐Ÿ™‚


^_^

I love the Abacus workshop and I got a certificate ๐Ÿ˜€


Yup. You know where. But it’s my first time having lunch there.

So I got the Ootoya lunch set (which is also available for dinner), which is a pile of karaage and croquette and I’m not entirely sure. What I’m sure of is that it’s so yummy!! Literally everything the chef makes is a beautiful thing.

Chapalang miso-tsuyu spaghetti with super yummy Tatsumoto pork sausage and surprise furikake. This #chefcasia is literally so chapalang. A little too salty but not bad ๐Ÿ˜€


One day they ran out of hor fun so I had to eat mee kia.

Maroon 5. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA ๐Ÿ˜€

Sorry not sorry.
PC080048
Huge fan of One Piece who watches new episodes every Sunday and curses when it’s postponed. McDonald’s had this thing and I’m like !!!!! so I got many people to help me buy and I managed to only eat 1 meal completing the collection.
I put them up on the Christmas tree at my grandma’s and the week after, my aunt just kept them in some box with the tree and I’m like T____T

The first time I found these, I said I live in a well and didn’t know that school sells pizza fries but Grace was like I think i live at the earth’s core where is this FROM. Hahahaha I love Grace. Internet crush although we’re first real life acquaintances but the friendship never progressed further in the Outernet.

I can’t cry over spilled milk cos I don’t drink milk. But I spilled my darn cereals and it was so hard to wipe all the sugary bits off cos they’re naked to the eye T_T


Crammed hell a lot of Japanese in 12 hours over 6 weeks thanks to Yลko sensei who raps her lessons, so if we didn’t pay attention for just one second, we’d be lost forever. She said my handwriting was very pretty HAHAHAHAHA everyone kinda says that but it’s the normal hand???

Overslept on the day of my examination. Maybe cos I was scared that I’ll oversleep. So I did. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ After all, it was in the midst of the hellish semester in which I slept at 4am and woke as late as possible to make it in time for school every day. The morning paper was asking for it. T_T Completely deaf to my alarm.
Went to Menzo Butao for lunch after taking JLPT. All of us were like aiya die liao die liao maybe can’t pass. I got la but N5.
PC070044
Got the aburi chicken. It was mediocre.


Ordered a Gudetama luggage, which was supposedly sold in Taiwan. SO CUTE.

It’s a tamago nigirizushi!!!!!!!! The quality is terrible though. I have brought it overseas as a carry-on once and it was already scratched from god-knows-what! I can’t imagine having to check it in T_T

You’re probably bored of me eating here.

That is if you made it this far down this draggy and boring post.

Bought yumepirika and it is so delicious!! You really pay for the quality!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ Eating this with tarako furikake is bliss.

Leftover rice for ochazuke is lazy bliss.

I miss my childhood so much. Especially those in Japan.

This cow plush. Not soft nor cuddly but I loved it all the same. Kids.


I love this boring as hell playground below the apartment! It’s so boring cos there’s like this slide and a seesaw and that’s pretty much it. It’s also stupid because everything is metal and then it was winter so it’s goddamn cold so max play was 5 minutes.

Miam Miam has terribly huge portions, I wish someone had warned me. My mum and I had to finish what was meant for about 5 people.
PB290006
Miam Miam spaghetti. Don’t remember how it tasted but I know it wasn’t much.
PB290002
Arrabiata was very salty.
PB290008
Caramelised banana pancake reminded me of After You Cafรฉ.
PB290010
Finally something delicious although I was stuffed from the pasta T_T
PB290015
Valrhona chocolate soufflรฉ was disappointing in comparison.


I bought FlashAir and everything’s great except for the unstable connection and ugly application UI.

Tested it out on some of my Tomicas since I could use the pictures for my show & tell for Japanese lessons lol.

The car that started it all ^___^

Also got new ones the day I ate at Miam Miam. I want to live in a Tentmushi!!! It’s so cute and cute and cute.

PB264392
Song Fa Bak Kut Teh was nice. Actually all bak kut tehs are more or less yummy. I still think Ng Ah Sio and Founder are my favourites.
PB264394
Taking this picture can either mean it was very nice or I gave up on taking photos of the others. I no longer recall what is true .____.


Saw this Singapore Poos and I laughed so loudly in the bus my friends told me everyone was staring at me. What’s new?


Had lasagna with meatballs at Gourmet Pizza to Go. Too much bรฉchamel for my liking and I didn’t like it very much at all.

This chicken hor fun at Harbourfront Centre’s food court was not bad. It’s also Halal.

McVitie’s Victoria diabetes.


When Don was in Tokyo, I asked him to get me Gelatoni, who was quite new then.

Story: Duffy dropped his gelato on the ground while taking a stroll with Mickey. Then Gelatoni appeared and told him it’s ok and introduced himself. Then he used the gelato to paint. And then they painted together.
That’s what I managed to read with my limited Japanese knowledge, aided with the illustrations. The story I first read online when it debuted sounded much more touching.

It’s so cute ๐Ÿ˜€


Toffee nut latte and they shouted Car ่™พ so loudly because I didn’t know it was me T_T

Calamari at Brewerkz for project.

Tried it with salmon and Hazel preferred it. I didn’t because it was so little and more expensive and not very flavourful on its own. The chicken was teriyaki-sauced and can be found in every other bite because they add chicken like it’s free ๐Ÿ˜€

Haato & Co. It’s now priced at those gourmet ice-cream prices. I remembered it to be much cheaper!!!

Hawaiian chicken thing at Breko Cafe. Without cheese.

Pistachio at Sunday Folks. Sorry for being boring.

I love cereal fish this much hahahaha ๐Ÿ˜€

This thing melted and stuck together but was so yummy!!!! Have no idea where it’s from but it’s some egg wafer coated in chocolate. Amazing!!!!

Mid-November and my complexion was this bad.


Bazhang from Daun Pandan Rice Dumpling. Yummy!!!!!!



Wasted an hour in lecture making this banana chocolate thing. I really don’t know why this teacher can be so strange. The funniest one was this ice-cream making thing before lecture. Took 1.5 hours to prepare everything before the shaking while he conducted the lecture. When you shake ice-cream in a bag of ice, it’s going to be really noisy right? He told us to shake the ice-cream non-stop and when we obeyed, he was like SHHHHH. What the.

School has this waffles and ice-cream place called Creamy Duck. What.

Hey Jude in my Lazy Oaf shirt.

I love origami.


Celebrated Marissa’s birthday at Hard Rock Cafe again. Before that, I went to Paragon to get her the Nutella cake again. Also 19 candles. I don’t think they put them all on it because it wasn’t as flaming T_T I walked the whole stretch in terrible rain T_T

Fish and chips

I love my face here hahahaha


Do I need to say where?

Kasan set!

Breaded chicken with vegetables in some broth. So good although I scalded my tongue T_T

My group planned on black and so did the other group -___- So it looked like a funeral.

HAHAHAHAHAHA

First time at Brewerkz to discuss about the project.

First time I fell in love with anything that has ‘salad’ in its name.

Hazel got really high from drinking and the cab ride home was so funny!! Uber driver also said we were his happiest customers ever!

Keyang was wearing this jacket with a detachable hood LOL and he detached it so LOL.
Anyway, I was later than my group in going to class then they told me that when they saw a figure behind them in the reflections, Hazel turned and screamed at me. Except it wasn’t me but some random stranger LOL!!!

School pasta with amazing meatballs that I never got to eat again because they were always sold out T_T



I love broccoli.

Fish & Co.


Went for the inaugural Hello Kitty Run because so cute!! It was supposedly 5km but ????? and it also rained and ran out of medals for the 15k turnout. Luckily I wasn’t those lazy asses who go to fun runs to fun walk.
Bought a towel for $15 and 5 minutes into running, it vanished. So I bought another after that because I’d rather buy a $30 towel than drop $15 on the floor lol.

This bunch of Japanese guys were sooooo cute!!! They made their own shirts for their corporation and followed the template of the given tee. It was SO cute!! And balloons around their waists!!!! But when they started running, a bunch of them tangled up and they were stuck together LOL!!!

Went to a workshop at school right after the run decked in my Hello Kitty jinbei. Everyone made fun of my jinbei. I literally don’t get it. It’s really nice. I’m still actively wearing it out because people always talk about the weird outfits I love anyway.


Yes

Katsu jyu

Delicious as always but I prefer the chicken one ๐Ÿ™‚

Peach parfait that was new on the menu. The banana parfait that was super good is no longer there T_T But this is nice too ๐Ÿ™‚

Chicken chop at Platypus Family Kitchen and the chicken was yummy!!

Hazel (Liem) got me a Hello Kitty EVA Air model ๐Ÿ˜€ I love it soooo much!! ๐Ÿ˜€


Farmer day LOL

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Had to send Sentosa photos for our membership card application so we agreed on doing this awkward smile. HAHAHAHA!

Our Sentosa Islander cards!!! HAHAHAHAHAHA! We received free fun passes as well. It expired when we finally found time to have a day of fun after the major school stuff were over. Nerds. All work and no play. T___T

Always asking people to have a picnic on their gingham shirts and for the first time anyone entertained me LOL!!!!!
Thanks Seng Tiong. You’re my best bud.

Congratulations. You have made it to the end of this post. I took days to write it. I’m so glad it’s done. If you cheated and scrolled to the bottom (don’t know why you did it when you can just close it), then I understand you completely because I’d have left LOL. Thanks for reading and that’s all for my last memories of school.

Monochrome Fusion Bistro

Wow what is this blogging about a day on the same day :O
Wow! That’s mainly because I wanted to upload pictures on Flickr to facilitate blogging then I just K.

So I met Don late evening for not lunch not dinner at Monochrome Fusion Bistro. He had motives being so bent on going to that rather new place. LOL.
IMG_4639
Shared this snapper loin cha soba! Thought the soba was way too overcooked. Bonito flakes smelled damn good though!
IMG_4641
The fish is so yummy!!!
IMG_4643
He ordered a slice of black velvet cake.
IMG_4645
Tastes like Oreos. I’m no fan of the whole red (now black) velvet thing really… There are so many nice flavours out there.

Right after leaving the place, we went for xiao long baos!
IMG_4646
10 for $5.50 hell yeah!!!

The Beginning of Schoollessness

Hello. Just sharing the recent stuff because I have been hibernating and I’m just trying to blog stuff before I spam Instagram in Japan and have to scroll more to find outdated Instagram pictures.

After the last paper, my group mates were finally free to go out together. Everyone except Keyang and me are super busy with leadership stuff or whatever the whole time. Even Keyang has friends to hang out with once in a while. And the whole time I’m just like “yes” to any of their “are you free”s and I realised I have turned down many notions of socialising because of school projects and also because many friends were then busy working.

Anyway look at everyone looking really happy because school’s out! Except me. I look like death.

Hazelnut and pistachio gelato! Finally tried these from Alfero and while it’s super smooth and rich, I didn’t think of it as highly as all my peers did because I really prefer some texture to my ice-creams/gelatos.

So the day after my last paper was CNY eve.
I was really sad because after the tiring semester I couldn’t hibernate yet. For a week.

Steamboat for reunion lunch!
That huge plate of taukee is obviously mine. Pity I didn’t finish the whole thing T____T If I remember correctly only half the plate was added into the pot.

Dinner that night was Domino’s pizza because I was craving for pizza terribly for a few days lol.

They have this new chicken thing so I tried this golden Mexican chicken. The concept is definitely bae because they replaced pizza dough with chicken, which is totally genius.
Except it was sooooo tiny!!! I know, it’s a side. But they really should consider making it a main because chicken.

Then the day after CNY, I went to Hat Yai as covered in my previous post.

I put on this Isshindo Honpo animal face pack I got from Tokyu Hands! Really pricey though… $15 for 2 sheets!! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
I believe this is the first ever facial mask I’ve ever put on. Trying to resurrect my complexion but I think it’s too late.

I have never taken so many selfies on my own phone before. Usually I take 1 or 2, in the rare occasions that I do. When on others’ phones, the numbers can range from 30 to 400. So ya, don’t leave your phones unattended.

Ok backstory. I finally bought a FlashAir. It’s great that I can now post photos on Instagram with high DOF instantly. Ok that explains some pictures you see here. Sad thing is because I’m lazy and grab these pictures from Instagram, they’re all in squares and lower quality lol. Ok end of backstory.

I tried to look for a job. I’m terrible at it. Why???? Anyway, I didn’t get the job.
So when I went for the interview in the eastern side of Singapore, I had to eat something I haven’t tried.

Seng Yang once said there was this “best chicken rice” in MacPherson so of course I had lunch at this Lam Bee Restaurant.
I always check-in on Foursquare so I see tips too and apparently everyone thinks the char siew here is the bomb. Seng Yang never mentioned char siew at all by the way. So I added char siew la.

What the shit. The char siew here is so yummy!! It’s not tough/dry and has the awesome smoky taste. The chicken was not bad but not better than Wee Nam Kee though. So, don’t trust your friends, trust the Internet.
Then I had nothing to do, and no friends too. I wasn’t going to waste a trip in the east like that, going home right away. But it was really humid that day.

So I went to Changi Airport. Mostly for the aircon. I should’ve gone to Bedok instead on hindsight, since there are many yummy stuff there. Dammit.
Sat at the gallery of T2 and read a book then went for dinner. At Itacho Sushi. I thought I was looking for new stuff -___- but it’s ok.

Favourite must-order kani chawanmushi!

Ebi tempura handroll. Their handrolls are always so crisp. BAE.

Tako and inari. (I put these two on a plate myself) I was just hoping they’d serve all my sushi on a plate.

Tamago. They wouldn’t.

Aburi salmon. I asked for without mayonnaise but look! I ate it anyway because it was little. I’ve had them here before but what I’d do is eat it really fast before I taste anything horrid. The semi-raw fish already encourages 1-chew eating. I really gotta do something about this before going to Japan lol.

Gyoza.


Bought my favourite cereal. If you’ve not eaten Post’s honey bunches with oats then please do. You’re welcome.

Saw these at FairPrice too. When I’m in Japan I will allow myself to splurge and indulge in strawberries. Just once this one time. Can’t wait T___T and also need lots of money to go repeatedly (dreaming) but I’m jobless remember.

I need about this much. Not dried cuttlefish. I need money. Then I can go travel the world ๐Ÿ˜€ (cries)

Was going around Orchard with Yuxuan before heading to Serangoon.

Lunched at Watami and set lunch prices are something I really miss!! I really ought to head out for lunch more often because dinner prices stink lol.

Gyuniku sukiyaki turned out way too filling and I couldn’t finish it. And dinner was only hours away.

I got lost in the wild on the way to the steamboat dinner.

I found my way. Very swaggy.

Steamboat after louhei! Funniest having a Muslim at a CNY dinner because one pot was to be kept Halal and the unfortunate gluttons there had to eat meat with a pork basket, in which we delivered pork to the other end of the table LOL.

Anyway, I brought these lukans to bainian. Then when they returned it to me, a bunch of us started to eat it. Because it was wrinkly and airy and everyone was curious. Is this the terrible future of CNY for the younger generations or what.

Then the next day was hopping around Singapore visiting. I forgot to bring oranges LOL.

The next day, Amanda was returning from Maldives!!!!!! Missed her so much ๐Ÿ™‚

Went to Hard Rock to look for Yuxuan before going to the airport together.
That’s where I blogged one third of the Hat Yai post. I was a total freeloader that day.
Used free Internet sitting in a free private office (business centre lol) in Yuxuan’s hoodie because it was really cold in there.

I paid for these awesome chicken wings at the Rock Bar. Really fat though. But yummy. Ate the whole plate till I nearly died. Then Yuxuan came and said she was dismissed early. I wanted to leave her some wings but it was 30 minutes ahead of time and it would’ve turned cold! Darn.
Then I shared a cab ride paid by Yuxuan to the airport and then drank tea (and was forced to eat some) (even after soloing a plate of wings) with Amanda’s family. Also got the cutest angpow ever! I don’t think I even said any gong xi fa cai to her mum because I was too surprised. We weren’t there to bainian. I’m sorry lol. Belated gong xi fa cai.


I tried to make cup udon and for the first time I couldn’t. The pictures wouldn’t even help me because they had microwaving instructions. I don’t have a microwave oven. How. So I freestyled and it turned out not very yummy T_T I can’t believe I’m saying this of JAS-marked food. They’re always yummy T_T why not this T_T

In the same week, I met Amanda again. Her mum too! Hahaha and Cheryl. There was supposed to be 3 others but they lame.

Mookata at New Udon Thai Food! I’ve not tried many mookata places around Singapore but I can say this is the best I’ve had. Don’t know how they marinate their chicken but OMG take me now! I mean I suggested this place when Amanda said she wanted mookata. Omg I miss this…

Amanda gave me Maldives sand and an anklet/bracelet/string thing ๐Ÿ˜€ I wanna go to Maldives too. Hearing her talk about snorkelling there is soooooo bae.

Then went to brunch with Hazel and Keyang at The Assembly Ground. I was late. I’m terrible. The last semester really destroyed me.

My brunch after the two finished. While at it, another Hazel joined us.

We shared truffle fries and it’s really good!!!! There are only a few places I find the truffle fries good and I haven’t stumble upon any since Au Chocolat but this has made it into my mental list ๐Ÿ˜€
They were trying to celebrate my birthday in advance. Under Keyang’s wallet was a pack of candles which stuck out like a sore thumb it was the first thing I spotted when I got there. The first Hazel snuck out and got a slice of tiramisu really neatly, at that I was surprised.
I don’t have a picture of it lol. Truth is, the tiramisu couldn’t compare to the one the second Hazel (Liem) made for me once. Honestly, she makes amazing tiramisu. Don’t know how to describe. It’s like a tiramisu benchmark. Hope she really opens a cafรฉ and issues me the “Platinum Casia card free food 4ever and even a special table” she promised me. She sent me this two-iPhone5-screen long birthday text and it was so nice ;___; It was so nice ;___; It was a digital hug plus many memories ;___; so nice ;_____; “Platinum Casia card free food 4ever and even a special table” oh my gosh!


Bought some mt wrap because they were 1-for-1 and finally reasonable. This is genius. Really.
Let me show you a video of it:


I love the parfait from Snaffles. But Lynette had to call me just as I was about to take a picture of it so it melted so much before I could. I have a fresh one on my camera but I didn’t use that. It will go into another post.

Went to Sentosa with Amanda and Lynette for dinner. That’s Amanda thinking she’s still in Maldives.

Dinner at Trapizza and they have changed somehow. They are now off my mental pizza list. By the way, the Pasta Fresca at Rochester is gone and I’m sad!


Lynette bought me the black tote when she was in London! She brought it in the huge paper carrier. Not entirely sure why but I think it has to do with a conversation when I was trying to guess which tote.


Birthday cake is Berry Berries from Flor Patisserie! Love their cakes a lot because the cream is never too heavy and their fruits are never covered with the jelly film thing.
Got a letter from JCSS days before and saw my N5 results that I checked online months ago lol and the day after my birthday was the day I could collect my certificate!!!

This is like a birthday present. Actually am appalled that I got A for all three sections although the scores are kinda meh. Anyway I should revise and study for N4/N3 or something.
Was out changing currency and collecting this before meeting Jiaen and Fiona and Nicole. I overslept 4 hours and was terribly late LOL given the errands I had to run before meeting them. Goddammit please revert.
They sort of coerced me into those room escape games. I mean it’s really fun online but paying $22 for a real life one is really a rip-off and they paid for me as a birthday gift. The props were really lame and we got all the keys anyway.

Dinner at Wala Wala and I don’t think I can ever be sick of this place.
Yuxuan is head over heels in love with 53A’s guitarist Alvin and that was the first time we heard him solo a song and omg the voice and the riffs and omg he followed me on Instagram and LOL Yuxuan was so envious. I can’t wait to wala again ๐Ÿ™‚
By the way, the chicken oregano pizza is yummy but I hadn’t known because I was blinded by the chicken wings. Also, they changed the menu and the dory chunks are gone!!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ But they have truffle fries now and while it’s not super bae, it suffices.


(over)Cooked spaghetti and tamagoyaki sausage. Going back to the kitchen after so long and I’m just like ?????? and I don’t think I want to cook again. That’s what I always feel after cooking and then even more when washing, but I will still cook sometime after.

Some day’s dinner at favouritest Ootoya.

Don’t know if I’ve mentioned because I haven’t blogged in so long but their chawanmushi is really so yummy now after they changed something – so smooth so sweet so better. Before that I used to consider ordering sets only when I am not eating a riced dish but now I have no choice but to order sets.

Musi nabe! Just a concoction of oishii ๐Ÿ˜€

Zenzai milk. I love everything I’ve eaten here omg.
Went to Jurong East to stroll because I was bored after dinner.

Went to take a cheese tart from Flor, which I was supposed to collect together with my cake but didn’t. Yum forever.


Went skating and ended up at Buona Vista. Fell down uphill. LOL.
Caught up with Marissa who was off work sick and had an unpleasant dinner there.

Met her again the next day when she was working because I went out with Joe and he forced me to buy him a birthday cupcake. PLUS COFFEE. Bitch.
I’m almost certain he suggested going out only because he wanted a gift, which I conveniently did not make for him yet. (SO I GOT HOME AND STARTED MAKING IT LA. My fingers hurt and it’s 2/3 done as of now.)
Anyway, Marissa gave me free coffee supposedly wastage lol.

Before that, I had Sunday Folks‘ pistachio cone and THEY CHANGED THEIR CONES!!! I’m so sad! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ It’s not as nice as it was before ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Then I went to SAM because there was a Kyototo workshop at Supermama with embroidery patches so I went to check it out.

Got this picture off their Facebook hahahaha I was blinded by the cuteness and spent $17 on making some earrings! That’s me ironing the patches on felt.

I was way too early so the place was relatively empty but when I was letting it dry, the whole place was so crowded!!

WEEEEEE

Had my dinner at Asanoya Bakery.

I was really sad after when I realised how little and unmeaty my day’s meals had been!

Anyway, this place is awesome. Really neat and pretty. Seems like a chill place to past time.

Melon pan is yum ๐Ÿ˜€

Think I got this loaf for $1 or $2. I’m not sure. All I know is that it’s so soft and yummy and it’s wholemeal! Can you imagine if it were white bread!!!!! I really wanna have some bread from here again. It’s just that I don’t know when I’ll have the mood to sit around with bread. I don’t know, maybe a book day.


Anyway, look at these giant grapes!

Ok the end. It’s 6am. No wonder I’m always oversleeping. Goodnight!!!!!!!!!

Cavalia & Verve Pizza Bar

HAYYYYYYYYYYYYYY everyone
(geddit geddit????? Hay? Because horse?) (never mind)

Before the show, had dinner (my first meal of the day having woken up 3pm) at Rasapura…
IMG_4242
Got these shrimp and minced pork wanton noodles from Noodle Star!
The noodles were really good but the dumplings were like so-so…
This whole food court has the most ridiculous prices but also a collection of really good Singaporean food so yea…

Went to the White Theatre Tent for Cavalia!
First time I’m at this venue and it’s a very beautiful theatre (although crappy seats)!
IMG_4244
Was seated about 5 rows from the very back ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
I thought it was super far from the stage so we brought binoculars!
Turns out the distance was ok and everything was ok ๐Ÿ˜€

I killed my phone’s battery with the excessive amount of (forbidden) photography…
It’s amazing how it lasted throughout the show and died once I left the place ๐Ÿ™‚

Really liked this black horse because it was so beautiful and elegant ๐Ÿ˜€

Then there was this cow-looking horse ^_^

This was my best shot of all hundreds of pictures I took HAHAHA ๐Ÿ˜€

LOOK!!!!!!
Do not forget I was way at the back and using my phone’s camera ok! ๐Ÿ˜€

Cutie pie




Her balance was amazing O_O


Then this other dude started jumping and then skipping over a rope ON the horse’s back #youwin




They all started with 2 and now it was a 4 and…

Then this lady was like handling 6 horses omg???

And all 6 of them were hurdling #youallwin



Aerial stunts


Acrobatics

Occasional comedy

And coming back to hurdle ON the horse #win

THEN THERE WAS THIS HORSE THAT WAS DANCING.

SO CUTE????



Notice the last horse.
It was so derp!!! HAHAHAHAHAHA
When going around the circle, it was always off track before sliding back into the circle!!
And when they were changing directions it was always confused and a few seconds late HAHAHAHA!
#horseme

The comedy preceding a really fast item.
By fast I mean horses zooming from one end to the other with the riders performing stunts on the horses’ backs, with all pictures I took so blur I deleted them .___.

SWAG

More aerial stunts


If I accept such blur photos, can you imagine how blur those I deleted were?


Then the sun started rising





You see, the equestrian art was so stunning, I never notice when they cleared the sand and filled the whole front of the stage with water.



The beautiful splish splash

MULTIPLIED.

Then they started spinning



Then they lined up and faced one side then the other, IN ABSOLUTE SYNCHRONICITY omg!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Zoom zoom

Watery zoom zoom





Ultimate zoom zoom

The goodbye

The live music (which was really good and the singer’s voice was lovely)
There was a standing ovation from the whole audience so YA GUYS GO WATCH IT!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€
Really enjoyed this show ๐Ÿ˜€

Superimposed the Zazabellou plush on a selfie cos I didn’t buy it T_____T

Was walking back to the car after the show…
BUT
The smell of pizza was raping my nostrils so I went to Verve Pizza Bar, just in time for the last order.
IMG_4253
Mancini – BBQ chicken, peppers, onions???
IMG_4262
It’s yummy!!! (but not as much as the OMGs like Pasta Fresca, Da Paolo and Trapizza)
IMG_4269
Couldn’t resist a pistachio gelato too!
Pistachio is quite the best flavour ever????
But this is not better than Haato & Co.
Ok then we headed home!!

On Wednesday, I had mixed vegetable rice for dinner from I-don’t-know-where!

Had this cereal fish (the extreme right) for like 3 days in a week .__. I love it .___.
At around 8.30pm, I had a sudden urge/motivation to sew a pouch for my portable charger, which I had in mind since the end of my internship!

So I did!!! (I bought the fabric because it matched my portable charger :D)
Freestyled all the way without measuring nor pressing and just #YOLO!!!!
I had to think on the spot how to sew a curved zipper cos I’ve never done anything so complex before!
So yoloing actually works because it turned out quite successful albeit tight (duh, I didn’t measure but simply wrapped around the charger and prayed)…
Took me 4 hours to (hand)sew it because I don’t have a machine and I’m so proud of myself ๐Ÿ˜€ lul

Then I had some severe insomnia that very night because I was still awake at 4am, then 5am, then 6am and the sun was rising (WHAT THE HECK)???
Its cause was likely my waking up at 4pm and then having hojicha after dinner -____-
So at 7am I was out of the house, in my inline skates LOL!!
Went to a park connector and accidentally ended up in Jurong East .____.
So I skated back and went to a nearby McDonald’s for breakfast!

Nearly smashed into the glass door upon my entrance because there was a steep slope facing the door, a woman in my way, a glorious drain cover with really big gaps and a brake that doesn’t do its job well.
So I was struggling to not fall while I was going down the slope, then I swerved a 360 before coming to a stop then skated into McDonald’s MUAHAHAHAHAHAHA #SWAG

Ok, THE END.
Here’s today’s OOTD

Cardigan from Emoda, shirt from Lazy Oaf, skorts from Zara and shoes from Dr Martens BUT U CAN’T SEE THEM ๐Ÿ˜€

I’m free!!!!

Hello everyone!
I have been returned to my lifestyle now that I have ended my internship!!

So on Thursday I woke up at 11.30am and didn’t sleep until 1.30pm or so today.
ALL BECAUSE OF THE REPORT I TOOK SO LONG TO WRITE!!!!
Then I went home and sleep, then left for Wala Wala ๐Ÿ˜€

RANDOLF ARRIOLA ^_^ HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHA #ultimatefangirl

Soloing a basket of chicken wings as usual…
After all I had nothing to eat all day! (except a few slices of pound cake)

Most random end to the meet: popping a bottle of champagne LOL
It sucked though…

So yesterday my lunch was at Clementi market…

The really nice pork porridge I had before wasn’t as nice in the form of chicken porridge ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
Also really appalling how Chai Ho satay had no queue so I was like YES but it was like NO cos they were only starting the fire let alone grilling the satay ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
For dinner I cooked shiba inu spaghetti!

It had randomly cooked the most perfectly al dente pasta and I don’t know how long I boiled it T_T

Ok and I have 2 months’ worth of food pictures to put here and I’m kinda dreading this but I’m like really GRACEful and nice so here goes:


Spaghetti bolognese at Gastronomia!

Ended the day with roasted pistachio ice-cream from Sunday Folks because Grace told me the pistachio here is better than Haato which I do not believe, and previously when I had it they just didn’t even put in effort to make it nice.
So this one, they had the chopped pistachios Grace mentioned of and it tastes better with the nuts but everything was falling off the cone onto me while I tried eating…
Haato is still better ok!!!!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ (REALLY)


Wei Ji wanton mee ๐Ÿ˜€
Possibly my last one until I ever go to Chinatown not hunting for cafes…

Last $5.50 xiao long baos ๐Ÿ˜€

Last chicken porridge from Tiong Shian Porridge Centre ๐Ÿ˜€

Last ah beng fried carrot cake ๐Ÿ˜€
I was gonna have my last People’s Park Centre yong tau foo but I didn’t go to work on Thursday… :/


There was one day I cooked this very yellow meal and now every time I think of it I want to barf…
Because it was not yummy and it was not pretty and I POISONED MYSELF LOL!!!
Now that I think of it, I poisoned myself with the salmon I cooked last time too!
For two days after the yellow meal, I had diarrhoea LOL!
Didn’t want to cook anything for myself anymore but then I had to cook the shina inu spaghetti because I really needed dinner.


The usual traditional Hakata ramen at Yoshimaru!
Haven’t had it in so long because I always opt for the salmon rice ๐Ÿ˜›
(omg embarrassing, I just command-S-ed this blog post because I thought I was writing a report)


Wala Wala last Friday night for Randolf again ๐Ÿ˜€ (and of course the wings)

Really oily Hawaiian pizza that’s bacon and pineapple. Their pizzas are really not bad though…


Waited quite some time for a seat at The Provision Shop.
The homemade fettuccine did not disappoint though.
Well thank god, because

my lunch from Sushi Burrito sucked!
They told me the salmon didn’t have mayonnaise in it.
There was MENTAIMAYO in it!!! I HATE MAYO SO MUCH I HATE HOW IT APPEARS EVERYWHERE WITHOUT WARNING AND DOESN’T EVEN TASTE GOOD ๐Ÿ˜ก
Not only that, the nori was so soggy and while I was eating, everything was collapsing and I was so pissed I went to buy McDonald’s fries to console myself and that is so even when I avoid fast food, especially McDonald’s, when I can.
And to think it was so expensive!!! UGH

To make things worse, the dinner before was terrible too!

This black sesame ramen from Yoshimaru is pretty much the first thing I DISLIKE there?
It’s so thick and tastes bad and is super spicy and I choked thrice on the broth OMG
It was like harsh murder but even Hades send me back up so I had to endure the torture of eating it or something.
The broth ruined the eggs but at least the sweet corns were the only still-good thing in the bowl T_T

Went to get some chendol from Island Creamery to save myself…

Supply & Demand is somewhere I’d love to return to ๐Ÿ˜€
I just need friends who are in for a pizza party because their pizzas look amazing!

Hazel and I both got ragu di maiale!
My penne was slightly undercooked ๐Ÿ˜ฆ but it tastes good!

Truffle fries were also yummy!!
But we had to discard about half of it because we were much too full after the pasta ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Took this selfie without effort to send to Edna to show her what I was doing, and turns out I really like this photo because I look strange and Hazel looks like a man and there’s food on the table!!! YAY ๐Ÿ˜€


Some stuff I got Shwen to buy for me while she was in Hong Kong!

WEEEE

Also cooked some gourmet (LOL) instant noodles ๐Ÿ˜€
I always get very happy when I fry my instant noodles because they always look very good! HAHAHAHAHA



Helped at a wedding at Capella! Cutest couple ever!! ๐Ÿ˜€

*pretends to be in California*



Tied the sash on the baby high chair and awww VIB ^_^ ^_^ ^_^

Had my first champagne after the wedding because someone was going around looking for people’s mouth to pour champagne into LOL!
But it was so yummy and I don’t know what it is but I saw “salmon” on the label so I REALLY DON’T KNOW MAN -__-
One of the funniest part of the after party was when everyone was clubbing at a TABLE and there were people standing on the chairs and Swedish House Mafia’s Don’t You Worry Child was playing and then, when it came to the “my father said” part, SOMEONE JUST SHOUTED “MY FATHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” DAMN LOUDLY! LOLLLLLLLLLLLL DED.


Bought a snack bag from Beverley because her illustrations are all always so nice, but I have no use for stickers cos I don’t stick them anywhere so yea a cute bag (that I haven’t found a use for lol)…
You can get her stuff from http://jukeboxprints.tumblr.com! ๐Ÿ˜€


Tamoya Udon!!! ^____^

Roasted pistachio waffles at Sunday Folks!
Favourite topping is yuzu kanten because I love kanten lol





Was a kampong kia one Saturday for this really cute 1-year-old’s birthday party!


Genius choux pastry iced gems! Didn’t try them though… cos I’m not a guest HAHAHAHA

Before the uncle left, he was trying to clear stocks and this was the BIGGEST ATAP CHEE BREAD EVER ;____; so hepi

THEN I HAD TIME FOR ONE MORE ;___; hepines


Random Pasarbella adventure.
Anyway, I was in charge of the zero-point station so I played a bit before the guests arrive.
Sprained my left thigh although all my kicking was done with my right leg LOL!

And on Sunday night I had to go to the hospital cos my leg hurt like hell and for one time I couldn’t bend my leg cos it hurt like crazy and I kept crying cos as if it weren’t painful enough, everyone was expecting me to be able to move freely as if it was easy and I was so pissed off COS SHUT THE HELL UP???????? ๐Ÿ˜ก
Wasn’t even a very severe injury but I’m like super weak LOL

Went to 119 Bukit Merah Lane 1 with Hazel one dinner!
She told me not to disclose this secret awesome coffee shop but I don’t care cos she won’t know cos she doesn’t read my blog (I think) HAHAHA
Decided on ้ขMiร n by the Travelling C.O.W

Shared a chicken teriyaki ramen burger!! ๐Ÿ˜€
It’s yummy! ๐Ÿ˜€
I swear this is one of the cutest and prettiest coffee shop ever! ๐Ÿ˜€
Wanna return to try the other stalls!

Had dinner with Marissa at Da Paolo Pizza Bar!

We each had a pizza cos those she can eat are what I don’t want to eat hahaha
I got prosciutto e funghi and yea HAM!

I don’t know what took me so long to dine here (I mean I used to work for the group for a very VERY brief period)
IT IS SO GODDAMN DELICIOUS!!!!!!!!
I CAN’T DECIDE BETWEEN PASTA FRESCA AND THIS BUT OMG IT’S SOOOOOOOO GOOOOOOOOD!!!!!!!!! T_T
PASTA FRESCA IS CHEAPER I THINK? I DON’T KNOW MAN BUT WHAT DOES IT MATTER RIGHT????

Got a free Nutella cake too because Marissa knows the chef lol
It’s nicer than the packed ones at Gastronomia because it’s softer and yea AWESOME ๐Ÿ˜€


I honestly don’t care if you don’t care about how much I love this lol

Lynette gave me an omamori she got from Meiji Shrine while she was in Japan! ๐Ÿ˜€
She proceeded to explain that it’s to ward off evil and that it would burn my hands cos I’m evil??? HAHAHAHA

Had 122 supermarket clearance sushis for dinner HAHAHAHAHAHAHHA


MMMM

Also bought $60 worth of nuts for the kacang puteh stall for the birthday party .___.
And so much were left and are now in the office…

Gula Melaka waffles with toasted marshmallows and yuzu kanten the first time I tried Sunday Folks!
Not very much a waffles person but I must say the taste and texture is great ๐Ÿ™‚


TWG‘s macarons: vanilla bourbon tea, grand wedding tea, Napoleon tea and Camelot tea!

Watched The Sound of Music alone!
First time at MBS alone because for the first time Yumiko and everyone else chose school over me V___V k
Was really hungry after the show so I went around hoping there are restaurants still open…
HY California was so promising but it was closed (with customers inside) ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
So I went to Caffรฉ B!

This lasagna is so yummy ;__;


Rather terrible truffle fries at PARK


Sakura matcha Kit-Kat Lynette gave me ๐Ÿ˜€

Poulet roti at Paul ๐Ÿ˜€

Salmon rice at Yoshimaru!


Humongous La Nonna pizza that was gradually less and less yummy as it was so big and it nearly killed me halfway into the pizza :/



Stuffed button mushrooms with tomato puree and tomatoes and topped it with cheese and herbs! YUMS!

Nutella banana dream


Vanilla latte from favourite Oriole!

Noriten is super yummy and addictive????
And when I bought one when I finally found it, it wasn’t as yummy as this one ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Some not bad Teochew bak chor mee at Smith Street! ๐Ÿ™‚

XLB FOREVER LUL

Sorry not sorry



Favourite oyako jyu at Ootoya

Didn’t really like the minced chicken Niigata mini don at Sanpoutei Ramen

But the Niigata shoyu ramen was yummy! Just a little strange cos I’m too used to Hakata ramen ๐Ÿ™‚

weeee

Very stingy uncle ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Wala wings on a day the 2nd floor was super full and Kellice and I could not listen to Randolf ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Wala dory chunks :>

Also befriended a bartender because Kellice’s tattoos are forever conversation starters lol


Again lol

4 Fingers because it has a new store in the west!

Tiramisu frappuccino and Eleanor & Park :>

YAY

DOUBLE YAY

Ikea’s yummy wieners for cheap ๐Ÿ˜€

Ah beng carrot cake lol


Had very high expectations of Tong Ah but… Ya Kun is still better to me lol :/

I cooked really yummy hotdog spaghetti with capsicums and mozzarella ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

Hi


A sandwich cake .__.

A pretty cake with pretty birthday girl ๐Ÿ˜€
The cake was yummy but was a mix of the strangest ingredients I don’t even remember anymore lol…


A very plain-looking but yummy duck confit panini at Club Street Social

Smoothie King wrap and angel food before watching The Fault In Our Stars and the movie was so crappy compared to the book!!

A really yummy duck confit pie at Pies & Coffee!
I normally don’t like mashed potatoes but these were good!! ๐Ÿ˜€

OMG I AM FINALLY DONE AND IT’S 5.30AM!
I took 4 hours to blog???
Grace, you’d better take me around Toa Payoh for all the best stuff ok???
(I’m serious lol, please PM me cos I lost your number)
Anyway, happy birthday Singapore!!

Competitive flag flying since last month hahaha
Ok goodnight!! My liver is super confused right now…

I think this was where I last left off

Hello.
I finally found time to blog.
After 2 months (that’s right).
Shoutout to Grace Heah for demanding a post LOL!!
Disclaimer: Judgment accuracy decreased from distance. Also, expect abrupt jumps between days.
Here goes…

Went to Privรฉ for dinner.
I need a car to come here for brunch, which is THE thing that people actually rave about…

Had me the Moroccan spiced chicken which I believe was mediocre, given its reputation…
I guess…? (TOLD YOU ABOUT MY JUDGMENT ACCURACY)
Also was my first time eating cous cous and decided I didn’t like it.

Triple chocolate and vanilla bean ice-cream! YUMS!!!


Tamoya literally sells the best udon at the most affordable price ever.


Ah Beng carrot cake with some of the peeps from favourite TR03 who came down to meet me after work.
Also the day I gave up even asking to go for a fashion show at Paragon… :/
Also the day…

LO AND BEHOLD 50 XIAO LONG BAOS LOL!!!!


Tamoya again! If this isn’t convincing enough then…


MMMM YAS CLEMENTI DUCK RICE MMMMMMMMMMMMMMM


MMMMMMMMM YAAASSSSSSSSS LOONG FATT TAU SAR PIAH MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM

Went to Ootoya again for dinner one day…

Mini hot soba yum

Mini oyako don yum

Kokuto pafรฉ yum

Tamago pudding yum
Honestly, I have no idea what Ootoya do to their food but it’s so delicious I continually close an eye to their really bad service or rather the lack thereof.
Also a really comforting place to dine at always seeing a few other TFOs.
TFO FOR LIFE! \m/

Went to En Japanese Dining Bar at Alocassia for Mothers’ Day lunch with my relatives!
I have a series of really badly-taken photographs but please pardon me because you know I cannot handle communal food well and also ever since my phone became legitimately smart, I have given less heed to my photography because the instantness of it all is magic enough to me.
I need an Eye-Fi or FlashAir or equivalent and probably then I’ll go back to when I actually cared enough hahaha…

Appetisers (tamagoyaki, stuff, ladies’ fingers)
Couldn’t eat much of the tamagoyaki because it was generously topped with mentaimayo so GOODBYE!
Stuff is so labelled because it’s my first time eating it and I have no idea what it is but it is so yummy.
Think it’s scallop or never mind… Don’t trust me on its identity…

Yummy kani salad ๐Ÿ˜€

Crab again

SHABU SHABU <333333

Udon ๐Ÿ˜€

OH MY GOD

Nikuzune shiitake ๐Ÿ˜€
Have yet to try making this but I will eventually, perhaps soon!

Matcha azuki!
The food here’s really yummy albeit pricey but like I’ve said, I can’t handle communal food well.
TFO characteristics…?


Yummy ice cheese tart from Flor Patisserie!
Had some cakes from Flor before and they’re ALL yummy! ;___;
But I can’t go there for an all-cake dinner because they close so early!! T_____T

On Lynette’s birthday, I had dinner at Yoshimaru!

Usually have sake gohan when I’m not very hungry or broke or just have no feel for ramen…
But the broth aroma is always so alluring goddammit????
In exchange for promised flight tickets to Japan, I decided to treat Lynette to 2am:dessertbar after incautiously eating there close to her birthday so much so she placed her wild card on this crazy store.

Chocolate praline poprock cake ๐Ÿ˜€

Mediterranean remains my favourite ๐Ÿ˜€ <33333
Just strange enough to be worth the hefty price tag!


Had dinner at Ipoh Lou Yau Bean Sprouts Chicken one evening and contrary to the endless queues and the many reviews online, this was far from impressive.
Not only is the shop name near impossible to pronounce, the food is also mediocre and overpriced and just ugh no thanks!

A day the bunch of JAJ peeps met up for dinner, I managed to measure Leslie’s forehead.

His forehead is a whopping 9cm tall!!!!!!!!!!!!
That’s twice my forehead, I kid you not!!!


Good Friday sale got me the cutie littel rucksack from my favourite Lazy Oaf and I don’t have any opportunity to use it lately because how do I wear work-appropriate clothes with this bag without looking like a mum slaved by a brat kid?

Found a vacation home in Wala Wala Cafe Bar.
Also did not know I have been entering illegally all these while LOL!!!
Whatever.

So I had the baked salmon which was ok but the spinach was beer-soaked and nasty (only to me).

The dory chunks were an absolute dream.
They’re basically bite-sized fish & chips without chips, otherwise known as simply fish…
And more visits proved that their snacks are the THANGGGGGGGG

Playing that night was 53A; awesome band I’d say.

Went to Genki Sushi for dinner one day.

These came in “trains” which really were an assortment of race cars. Trains???
Have no idea why but I was jaded with the concept before I even experienced it LOL!
I was more fascinated with the plate bin hahahahaha sorry I have a warped mind.

The best thing they had were these poached egg tempura and though it’s not well made, I liked the dish, mostly because I was imagining what a well-made one would taste like… GOD’S PANTRY OMG


Was delivering stuff one day and had to stand around for an hour waiting so I got some latte at One Shot Coffee and YUM ^_^
After which, when I was free to go, I went looking for my lunch but for some reason I could not find any shop open?????
So I promptly entered Le Chocolat Cafe when I saw its doors welcoming me and actually selling food…

Delicious club sandwich with fries and salad which vinaigrette leaked and soaked the paper bag on my way back to the office lol…

Labour Day!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Truffle fries at Au Chocolat pre-show!

Grease!


Was damn swooned when Doody sang Those Magic Changes! ^____^

The evil works of Yumiko…

Beauty School Dropout; always hilarious!

Thought Sandy was very soft and Danny only made his way out with his funny nervous laughter…

Then they took out this board towards the end, got EVERYONE to stand up and sing along.
So being Singaporeans, most stood from peer pressure but only one other group sang and jived?!?!?!
Singapore’s so lame.
The cast was rather lame too forcing everyone into a standing ovation for a show that wasn’t very energetic.

On a side note, Lynette was a fashion disaster.

Went to Wala Wala again because it’s my vacation home LOL!!!!

*** The most amazing fried chicken I have ever had that isn’t glazed with magic sauce but is still magical!! ***
I wolfed down the dozen basket while trying to listen to Randolf Arriola sing but literally EVERYONE (it was crowded too) WAS TALKING ๐Ÿ˜ก
With utmost concentration, I managed to hear him sing the most beautiful rendition of Duran Duran’s Come Undone EVER.
Gotta go back to hear him sing again man…
Anyway, he performs 7pm to 9pm on Fridays.

Martell lava cake!
The crunchy sides were nice, the buffer cake was gross but the middle was yea nice.
Does it not suck? Not liking the taste of alcohol but actually liking the aftertaste of cognac but cognacs are $30 a glass?????????? This world is out to get me!
So I was listening to Reverie being awesome and kinda hoarse and suddenly the bar blacked out LOL what
YA stuff like that…


Look at this glorious sandwich I made!! ๐Ÿ˜€ #chefcasia

Chai Ho satay dinner ๐Ÿ˜€


A meat rice birthday cake.
The week before saw a sushi + sashimi cake.
The week after saw a normal cake but a crazy candle.
OMG BIRTHDAY OLYMPICS.
And I doubt they’re stopping here.


Us super noisy bunch at Japanese class winning fans (and I snatched Pikachu duh)!!!!

Sake gohan and mini teriyaki chicken burger for dinner lol…

Went to Pasarbella looking for Charly T’s but was too late and pretty much everything were closed except a few including Dancing Crab so that’s where we went.

Delicious pink thyme lemonade <3333

Awesome combo bag filled with crabs, prawns, corns, sausages, clams (don’t eat) and mussels (don’t eat)!
All those were doused in this awesome puree that was a little too spicy for me but tasted awesome!!!
When I was done my lips have swelled to twice its usual pout and I just IDK MAN LOLLLLLL…


Tonkotsu ramen at Ikkousha Hakata Ramen and it’s so yummy!!! ^___^

Went to Balzac Bar and Brasserie for dinner!

Pomme frites; the bomb.

Beef cheeks a la cuillere; the bigger bomb.
Never knew why I never walked in despite always thinking of…
It’s really yummy T_T

Yup, this is the candle I was talking about…


One of the best YTF at the most random food court at the most random mall without long queues ๐Ÿ˜€
Sorry my YTF looks unappealing but that’s good too because YOU ALL WON’T CREATE A QUEUE >:D


Yuzu sorbet and favourite pistachio at Haato & Co. and I noticed a price hike ๐Ÿ˜ฅ but I can’t find reason to part with this pistachio gelato…

Always the nun at a shots bar but the water at Chupitos tastes like crap probably for good reasons though lol…


Favourite prosciutto e funghi at the usual Pasta Fresca but for the first time I was completely ignored from entrance to exit.
I had to walk right up to the counter to place my order, got no table settings until my food arrived, no water was served until I nearly choked and died mid-meal, no one wanted to take my money too?????
Horrible as it is, the pizza felt like a comforting Jesus hand patting my back LOL (isn’t that a perfect description of pizza though???)

Then it was Wala Wala another night again.

You can’t see the wings but they’re there and nice as always…

You can see the chunks but they’re nice too…

Curly potato wedges bought on impulse and ugh too potatoey for my liking…

Vesak day!!!!!
Went to Ma Maison pre-show!

Beef stroganoff with butter rice…
Everything was fine except that some of the beef were inedibly chewy and ugh.

Lava cake from Chocolate Origin and though the consistency is awesome I just cannot trust a lava cake that is pre-broken???? That’s my joy you are taking away from me!!! NO.

Watched The Rise and Fall of Little Voice because the plot is awesome and because Pangdemomium’s productions have so far been amazing…

Really funny show with great plot, sets and vocals!!!
The good thing is there are always student prices for their tickets and for $50 in a mid category I get an amazing view and a spectacular show.
This is definitely better than Grease which I paid more than double for.
I can’t help but to think of how impossibly good Next To Normal was though… ๐Ÿ™‚

Ok, I’m not done but at least now you (Grace) know how my April – May went and what food you (Grace) can eat next! ๐Ÿ˜€
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA OK GOODNIGHT ๐Ÿ˜€

Shin Kushiya Japanese Charcoal Grill

Ok so in my one week of holiday I had some food (but when do I not?!?!)…
On Thursday I had dinner at Shin Kushiya because the entrance was beckoning me to get closer and closer and I was mentally coerced to enter despite its rather expensive menu T_T

Garlic fried rice!
I don’t think I’ve paid so much for fried rice in my entire life LOL!!!
But at least it’s fragrant and yummy ^_^
Since they seemed to specialise in grilled stuff, I didn’t buy other things like oyakodon and udon and stuff that I really wanted…

Enoki maki, sake ponzu, yakitori, nikuzune shiitake! ๐Ÿ˜€ ($3 ~ $5 all skewers if you exclude foie gras or other crazy premium stuff)
What I was eating was really just gourmet Tori Q or Wadori ok…
Enoki maki (pork slices and enoki mushrooms) was alright; yummy whoever cooks it (read me) anyway… and for $3 I thought it’s a no-no since I very kindly blogged a how-to recently, which is a tiny tiny fraction of the costs for the same amount of enoki maki.
Sake ponzu (salmon and ponzu and grated daikon (I think)) is REALLY YUMMY!!! ๐Ÿ˜€
Very pupil-dilating and interesting and I just really like it ok?!?!!??! GO GET YOURSELF THAT BURST OF FLAVOUR! ๐Ÿ˜€
Yakitori (chicken. just chicken.) was ordinary… Just go to Tori Q if you want to eat this (to be honest Tori Q makes it more tender and OMG THAT GRAVY)!
Nikuzune shiitake (shiitake stuffed with minced chicken) is… GODDAMN BEAUTIFUL IN EVERY WAY?!??!?!?!?!?! ^____^
I love mushrooms and I love chickens and this together is just so beautiful!!!
So juicy and all that T____T
I think I’ll try to cook this one day when I’m free!! ๐Ÿ˜€

The previous weekend I was working with Lynette at the NATAS Fair and we spent a good amount of time loitering around the Japan NTO booths because I happen to love Japan a lot and Lynette kinda loves everything but she doesn’t have to yearn for travelling (like I do) because she does that twice a year without fail and to really nice places too T_T
Took a lot of brochures thinking I could do some fake travelling in my head (do I sound pathetic…?)
They were also handing out tons of cute plastic bags filled with brochures so yes, thank you Japan!
(I also put up a map of Japan above my bed LOL (not sure what for but it’s beautiful))

Okinawa and the really cutie pie memo pads ^____^

Nagoya and a goddamn generous gift of this beautiful pen and you can see how happy I am about having it in my possession because I took no less than 20 panoramas in an attempt to capture this!!!!

And in a (heavy) surprise bag with brochures I didn’t think much of while I was working, I found Hello Kitty magnets and chopsticks and notebooks and a keychain T_________T
I have a few more stuff I didn’t take pictures of but yea T____T I’m so happy T____T

Saw 2 Japanese men walking around dressed as One Piece’s Marine and Luffy!!!!
And we had to rob them of their costumes for a photo because I LOVE ONE PIECE (Lynette doesn’t know anything about One Piece and she thought I called her Luffy as a combination of “Lynette” and “Duffy” I nearly vomited blood)
I chose the Marine’s costume because it’s a legit legit Marine’s costume!!!!!!! ^______^

The next day I met with her again for a dinner because she wanted to pass me a birthday gift she has been hiding from me since her return from Japan (SEE WHAT I MEAN?????)

She got me the Duffy pouch I have always wanted T_T
Thank you x1000000 although it couldn’t even contain a cellphone <3333

We had truffle fries and even more fries at PS Cafe as if the truffle fries alone were not more than enough for two to share.
(We finished them all)
The waitress who took our order got a shock and we all couldn’t stop laughing HAHAHAHAHAHA

We parted ways after a double scoop from Awfully Chocolate.


Duck confit at Saveur with Joe some other day!
Not the best but is more than wonderful at its price ๐Ÿ˜€

So after the last paper (OMG TOURISM LAW HAS SCARRED MY LIFE), a whole bunch of us went to Modesto’s for lunch on Fiona because she has a whole stash of vouchers HAHAHAHAHAHA!!

Not my mushroom soup but I took a sip and didn’t think it was very good…

Portobello and prosciutto pizza!! ๐Ÿ˜€
I liked the portobello one more! ๐Ÿ˜€

Penne alla bolognese which was not too bad…

and vanilla gelato!! ๐Ÿ˜€
Then we went to some community club for karaoke HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
I LOVE KARAOKE MAN!!!!!!!
It’s just that it is so difficult to find people who listen to the types of songs I listen to to go karaoke with!
Like they were all singing Chinese songs and stuff but it’s ok HAHAHAHA (cos I was chanting along for fun).
After all, I got to solo Bohemian Rhapsody LOLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!
Then Fiona, Jia En, Yong Chin and I went to Tom Yum Kungfu for mookata although all of us were still super full!!
It was good but I thought the one at Golden Mile is way better!
Went to Oblong for desserts!

Baileys and lychee martini!
I love alcoholic desserts and everyone always slams me since I hate drinking alcohol???
Does no one hate the repulsive sting from drinking alcohol??????????
In desserts I get to taste it better anyway!


Some delicious chicken congee at Ghim Moh market from my broke days during study camp!
Study camp was a mixture of Starbucks, Costa Coffee and Smoothie King lol.

To date I have not tried anything other than Angel Food hahahahah!

Tried a grilled teriyaki chicken breast wrap and my is it delicious!! ๐Ÿ˜€
The thick end of the wrap tasted like roti prata (2-in-1 wraps OMG)!!!

Love the chicken pie from Costa Coffee!!

I also prefer their coffee to Starbucks’ because I find it more consistent and aromatic.

Their passionfruit tea was lovely too!

Some day we had beautiful Chai Ho satay โค

Also wasted my last bindi on a random day because it was already slightly damaged so yea… why not?


Bought a lot of Ringo Work ^_^

Yummy cookies ^_^

Yummy sake gohan at Yoshimaru Ramen Bar!

The mini teriyaki chicken burger was really yummy too!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

Moridakusan Hakata ramen on another day!
A lot of additional stuff I don’t really eat so yea, I wouldn’t buy this again! (Had this only on promotion)

The best crushed ice on earth from Jamaica Blue because a whole lot of my friends work there LOL such perks

Favourite pho ga at Ghim Moh market ^_____^ (a Vietnamese stall at the corner!! GO EAT!!!!!)

Ok that’s all and it’s like 4am now omg GOOD NIGHT!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

The Providore & Peperoni Pizzeria

Hello!
Hell of a month filled with stuff to do but here I am blogging just because.

So today I woke up early (without difficulty, if I may add) to head to Orchard for some table-for-one breakfast.
I initially wanted to eat at Dean & Deluca because I wanted to try other stuff on the menu but when I got there at 10am, which I researched was its opening hour, it was still sort of unopened with a staff meeting ongoing.
So I left…
Found some of my friends at the entrepreneurial bazaar at *Scape to leave my laptop with before I head to Wild Honey.
However, before I could reach Wild Honey, I spotted The Providore smack right in front of the escalator I took.
It was fairly crowded, implying that they were serving breakfast and I saw on a table someone’s beautiful eggs Benedict.
IMG_4151
So I had my breakfast there ๐Ÿ˜€
I have to say I was thoroughly intrigued by the salt and pepper grinder.
Turning it one way grinds the salt and the other the pepper.
MAGIC (physics).
IMG_4152
I ordered the English breakfast (there are sauteed mushrooms under the bread)!
Overall I thought it was decent except for the pork sausage which was really lumpy and fatty and just no.
Mushrooms were tasty too!
IMG_4153
The fried eggs were divine and they tasted wonderful paired with buttered sourdough.

I was just really unhappy my precious yolk were dripping all over the plate instead of in my mouth.
If I do return I’ll probably give the eggs Benedict a try.

After that I went to Oriole Cafe and Bar to get my favourite vanilla latte ๐Ÿ™‚

That’s more than a Venti’s price for less than a Tall!
But it’s worth it ๐Ÿ˜€
Spent the rest of my day loitering at the booths and for a very short time, discussing some schoolwork.
I was really broke having spent more than $50 in no more than 2 hours before noon so as much as I’d like to support my friends’ businesses (jk, not really), I couldn’t.
However, Fiona got me a doge sticker ๐Ÿ˜€ HAHAHAHAHAHA

When I came home I did a little DIY on the Muji CD case I bought after breakfast.
Used some adhesive letters I found in my craft stash and tried to make out whatever words I could with the letters I have left.
Had to edit some letters to form the “H” and “O” I lacked.

As the bazaar was ending soon, I was involved in an intense battle of country erasers with Bernard.
Didn’t know I was so skillful until today, despite losing.
Not sure if it’s a consolation or what but he treated me clearance ice-cream from someone’s booth.
See, I couldn’t afford $1 ice-cream.
Then I had dinner with Mariah!!! (I miss my TR03 so much, I swear it’s the best class ever)
Went to Fatman Satay at the Youth Park across.

I was so disappointed with the satay because it was $0.60 per stick, which I consider expensive, and its meat were minced and totally unenjoyable because I was about to rip off my first chunk but the whole slab just slid off the skewer??????
Not tender and tasted nothing like chicken too!
Couldn’t believe Lynette told me Fatman was better than Chai Ho Satay ($0.38/stick for the love of god)!!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
Perhaps the one here is different from the original (?) outlet?

2 days ago I went to Yoshimaru with Fiona and Jia En for dinner!
Wasn’t having the usual because I had a 50% off voucher for the shabu shabu butaniku ramen which I have had once and didn’t think much of it.

Well, it tasted better than my first time and yes I love the broth so much.
And the eggs.
And the sesame seeds.

3 days back I had dinner at Peperoni Pizzeria for the first time after hearing it being raved about by all my friends for so long.

Shared a 12″ diavola and prosciutto e funghi with the girls!
I thought the crust was too thin for my liking.
Diavola was good but the ham were so unevenly scattered and tough I wasn’t very pleased.
For this size I could get better prosciutto e funghi (and better crust duh) at half the price at Pasta Fresca!

The bolognese linguine was yummy!
Texture’s good and the parsley (or maybe not-parsley) added sweetness at times which was really nice but I don’t get how parsley can be sweet so what is that thing??????
Amount of sauce was perfect and tasted good ๐Ÿ˜€
But let’s just say it’s goddamn overpriced for pasta…


Anyway, I bought a new car when I was getting a birthday gift for Hazel for her to open after her practical test lol…

Got this gomashio-kun furikake a week ago cos the packaging was so cute and its name (literally sesame salt) was just so cute I had to get it.
Furikake makes rice better rice I love it.

Had this yummy duck rice in Clementi 3 weeks ago!
I don’t know what its name or the food court’s name is but I know where… that’s all that matters (to me).
Have yet to try it again cos I have conveniently forgotten its existence until I saw this picture ๐Ÿ˜›

And last month, I cooked this most perfect fried egg ever!
Couldn’t replicate it when I tried again days later T_T
Some of the whites were runny while the rest were just cooked and I seasoned it perfectly!
It was like a half-boiledfried egg!
Wish I heeded more when I cooked because tasting this fried egg again is pretty much a dream not attainable in the near future.

Ok abrupt end to this post with some beautiful golden tau sar piah

(Loong Fatt Tau Sar Piah: 639 Balestier Rd, Singapore 329922)
(Address because I welcome anyone to buy me these during lecture lol)
(Oh shit, I’m not going to have lectures for a long while in a while)

Because Research Lecture…


Watched Sweeney Todd two days ago and loved it!
Tim Burton + Johnny Depp + Helena Bonham Carter is the formula for a promising movie, duh!
The plot was really good and the music is so good and woah I love!

And I found this and nearly died! HAHAHAHAHA!!! But Johanna is my favourite song from the musical ^_^

And things I intended to blog with the previous posts:

Mango soft serve with kanten jelly at MOF ใฎ My Izakaya!
So yummy and less filling than my favourite mango kakigori!


Penne rigate al ragu bolognese and wedges with Lynette after golfing at the Golfers’ Terrace before the culinary arts workshop!
The food was meh but at least it didn’t cost ridiculous.


Had some crispy salt pepper mushroom from Shihlin Taiwan Street Snacks
It was ok but super oily and too filling for me to have a proper dinner after.
Enoki tempura surpass this by a huge lot.



The usual prosciutto e funghi at Pasta Fresca for dinner after doing most of my e-learning assignments at Starbucks since morning.

Toffee nut latte because Christmas.
Getting this only because of the crunch but vanilla latte forever otherwise.


The usual traditional Hakata ramen at Yoshimaru Ramen Bar!


Soft-boiled eggs and coffee at Ya Kun.

Went to Nine Thirty by Awfully Chocolate with Lynette before work.

Chicken noodle soup that was meh…
Unique and all but really unimpressive.

Truffle fish and chips.
It was pretty bad… and the truffle taste was not strong…
And I had specifically asked for the tartar sauce to be separated but LOOK!!!
I was so angry!
I think it’s better if they stick to their lovely chocolate cakes and ice-cream.

Then we went to the Little Black Jacket exhibition at the ArtScience Museum because the tickets were free!

I got a free Keira poster too!

This is my favourite picture ๐Ÿ˜€


Chai Ho satay ๐Ÿ˜€


Evertop Hainanese boneless chicken rice ๐Ÿ˜€


Roasted chicken burger at The Rotisserie ๐Ÿ™‚

Tata from lecture!
