Our beef set. But she just stole all the beef ;__;
P6220420
It’s really good!!! The sauce is bae!
Then I remember we took a cab to Orchard because she’s too rich and the weather was too ridiculous.
Don’t know what we did… ??

P6220432
Bae baumkuchen ice-cream πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

This is also the first time I look at Mexican food with interest ok!!

Ok the end.
I have a Finland post in mind but I haven’t got time to look through my photos or videos yet. I WILL SOON!!!
And then I’m going to Japan so ANOTHER POST!!!! I just don’t know which I should compose first when my return :/

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.


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


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








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


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

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?” πŸ˜€ U GO GURL

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



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



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


Shin Yeh’s not very nice leh :/


Tsuru-koshi for dinner one day.


Prata because Zion was closed for cleaning for a while T_T

A bowl of taugeh at Ramen Champion lol.


Oriole with Hazel πŸ˜€


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


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

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

ASH!!!!!!!

ASH IS SO CUTE!!!!!

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


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


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))

Some stuff

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


My life as a mayor of Zion hawker hahahaha

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


Zion with really good lighting.


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


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



Maggi goreng pattaya at Spize.

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




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

Yum!


Eating at Swee Choon for the first time.

It’s ok only man.




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




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

Lasagne at Gastronomia πŸ˜€


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

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

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


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


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





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


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



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






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


I love Teppei Syokudo πŸ˜€

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

I love!!!


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


Zong Yang’s birthday.

51st birthday.


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



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


Ikea food with Jasmine and Douglas!

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


Before class and

After class because seaweed shaker is bae hahahaha πŸ˜€


Kurobuta katsudon at Tampopo πŸ™‚

I love Liang Court yum



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




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

Went to Brawn and Brains for coffee. Nahhhh….

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

Chye Seng Huat Hardware Coffee!!!

Yum @ everything.
Then I went home and…

ate this goodness. Hahahaha whole day!!



πŸ˜€

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

Zion Riverside Food Centre

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

Damn good fishballs O____O

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

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

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


Discovered the BBQ wings are hella yummy.

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

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

Addiction T_T

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



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

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

Told you so…


.___.





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

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

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

Yakiniku don. You see why.

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




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

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

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

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

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

Tebasaki. Bae.

Unbae.




Omurice πŸ˜€


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


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

Gone case.


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

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


Usual cheese baked pasta at Eighteen Chefs

!!!


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


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

Castella!!

Brown sugar castella!!!

Ramune ice!

Double fantasy cream puff!

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


Bento is life. Period.

Unatama for $8 T_T yumz T_T


Surprise pasar malam. Take my money.

Pisang keju???


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

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

Never trusting cereal fish that aren’t from Kimly.

Pepper Lunch lor…

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


Tony’s Pizza. X__X

Truffle fries.

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


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

Breaded chicken leg πŸ˜€

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

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

Tomato soup πŸ˜€

Black pepper chicken burger πŸ˜€

Praline mousse tart πŸ˜€


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


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


My first time at Kenny Rogers Roasters.

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

Hahahaha

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


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


Gastronomia‘s lasagne πŸ˜€

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

Nutella cake πŸ˜€

Favourite salted caramel crodo πŸ˜€


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


Ducky at Poulet


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

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


Jasmine & Friends. She turned 20.


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

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

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


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

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


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

Submarine baked potatoes wowowow!

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


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

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

Karaage bento ;___;


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

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

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

Rong Cheng bak kut teh afterwards.


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

Teacher gave everyone Gudetama ^____^ hahahaha



The ultimate ζŸε‹ that is Chara.

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

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

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

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

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


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


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

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


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

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


Qi Ji popiah in the car.

And it’s yum!


Happy Mookata with the swagglez.

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

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

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


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


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

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


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

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

Never…

Some #chefcasia:

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



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

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



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


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

Tsukada Nojo & more yums

P5050186
Some time early May I went out to dinner at Tsukada Nojo with these 2 cutie pies πŸ˜€ They honestly are super cute πŸ˜€
Travis’ friend was working there and she too was super cute πŸ˜€

Bijin nabe looks like a pot of tauhuey.
P5050180
So beautiful!!
P5050182
All we had to do was sit and eat because the staff does everything for you!
P5050185

P5050187
Oh ya, when all the collagen dissolved, we found that in it were super tender chicken!
It was a delicious pot of fats.

Odamaki-mushi for our Cooking With No Dog channel. JK. When there’s no dog, we also forgot to measure all our ingredients hahahaha πŸ˜€
P4300172
The chicken meat and udon we got sucks. Other than that it was good.

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


Got this wonderful bunch of Hokkaido omiyage for only $25!!!! πŸ˜€
P5130193
After that, I bought another package for $50!
Then I think they found out they were making a huge loss and the prices of these now are back to almost normal retail price T____T
I was gonna spend $90 on another bigger package but I decided not to because I honestly was super broke for a while, thinking it’s gonna be there when things get better. Thanks for breaching my trust T___T


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

P4270164
Niku udon with ebi tempura at Tsuru Koshi for only $9.90! What a wonderful promotion πŸ˜€

Herbal chicken broth yums!
P4270159
Noodles were good too, everything else ordinary, EXCEPT the bamboo meatball thing. It tasted quite chemically and ummm I tried to take more than one bite and it’s just no 😦

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

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

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

She looks like Elffie!


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

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

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

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

P4250152
Yummy bak kut teh for breakfast at Leon Kee Claypot Pork Rib Soup. I always liked the pepper one but this herbal one is good πŸ˜€

Tempura Moriawase.
P4230149
It seemed as though every time I eat with Shwen we never ever have a normal one-plate meal and we eat until we’re on the brink of death.
It surprised me how yummy the food was because I always had the impression Ichiban Boshi was a mega chain with inconsistent food. I am so sorry why did I even have that impression?? T___T

P4210141
Sunday Folks again.

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

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


Went out with Pignette!!!!! πŸ˜€

Tori karaage don at Isetan I love bentos πŸ˜€

Hokkien mee from NTUC FoodFare yum.

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


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

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

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

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

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

We then went to Parkway Parade? Or something like that. The new stuff in the east are foreign to me. Then she went home and I waited for my mum to come pick me up.
P4130119
Got her a piece of gold brownie for her birthday from Chalk Farm!
Then I found myself back at East Coast Park -____- because we’re in the east and my mum loves seafood and it’s her birthday so what better reasons do we have to not Long Beach? Actually we wanted to eat at some other crab place but it’s closed la… LOL!

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

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

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


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

YUM I LOVE MY COOKING *shameless*

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

Ito-Kacho

No man, I didn’t go to Ito-Kacho for yakiniku 😦 I went there for a $30 lunch bento because I was hungry and it looked good. I entered minutes before lunchtime ended and took a long time to eat the huge ass filling meal. I think that’s why the staff were somewhat unwilling to serve me or something.
IMG_4677
Salad. Lotus root chips yum.
IMG_4679
Chawanmushi but with some starchy stuff on top. Not bad actually, but the camera can’t focus on it lol.
IMG_4691
That’s right. Tori karaage!!!! Tempura!!!!!! WAGYU BEEF!!!!!!!!!!!!!
IMG_4688
YUM!
IMG_4686
YUM!! Prawns + shiitake mushroom + onion! The onion is surprisingly really good, although I’ve not seen it being tempura-ed before.
IMG_4683
YUM!!! This was mildly spicy but goes really well with the rice! The rice was kinda strange, actually. It was hard and like… wrong. But the dishes made my $30 totally well spent. Non-beefers can opt for kurobuta too!
IMG_4690
Miso soup was almost cold by the time I finished everything and got to it. Quite ordinary.
I’d love to return for yakiniku someday!! Hopefully someone pays for me… I glanced through the beef pages on the menu super quickly because I didn’t want to look at the prices. It cannot be affordable for peasants in any way looking at the marbling on the images.

Went out with Yuxuan the day after. Brought her to Ootoya!! -___- I’m sorry I can’t part with this place. It’s like an oasis in Sahara. HAHAHAHAHA Sahara. That was how Yuxuan completely misspelled “hahaha” πŸ˜€
IMG_4693
Chawanmushi photo for the nth time.
IMG_4696
I think I don’t glorify their miso soup enough. There are so many ingredients in the miso soup it’s pretty much the most flavourful one I’ve had in Singapore.
IMG_4695
Oyako jyu. Again. I eat this too much. Just not enough to make me sick of it. I don’t think I ever will be sick of it. It’s too perfect.

Right after that, she was still hungry and so we headed to Sunday Folks to satisfy her cravings. I think I make her sound rather pregnant. She isn’t. Unless… *gasp* jk
IMG_4699
Usual roasted pistachio ice-cream.
IMG_4701
Just for once, not in a cone. They changed it to one that tasted not better than the one I love. Tell me if I’m wrong T_T I really enjoyed the cones T_T

Then we went to Orchard for fun. I must’ve looked a sight dressed in my jinbei and flip flops but who cares? I love it. At Muji, we found these bean bags made of figurative gold. However you plant yourself on it, it cannot be uncomfortable. Sat there for a good 15 minutes or so. I want it 😦
IMG_4702
Dinner was some takoyaki from Wow Tako. Let’s just say it was far from wow. Especially when it’s to do with the tako. The first ball, was EMPTY. Then I had another to confirm that the first was really empty and not just small. The ones that had tako was disappointing. Puny. I don’t even want to talk about the batter man. Should have taken it as a cue to not order when they weren’t even actively making any balls, having a few stacked up ready to serve (cold).


Ducky!!!


Hakata Men-Oh Ramen (Isetan Scotts Supermarket) for lunch.
IMG_4704
$10 only but more delicious than several raved-about ramens which are easily 1.5x its price. The broth is very rich and fat but not so fat that I’d be repulsed.
IMG_4709
Picked this box of Kumamon Castella up at the Kyushu fair because I love Kumamon and I love Castella cake πŸ™‚
IMG_4706
Out of the three flavours, custard is the nicest. Anko made it taste like mini dorayaki.

Then I met Joe to pass him his birthday gift, which he pestered me non-stop for. Making this really hurts my fingers because hello 1,000 knots or something.

Spent so long making this for him, who demanded it full of beads, as a birthday gift in exchange for I DON’T EVEN REMEMBER WHAT but he gave me a tie-dye bag. I honestly wish I didn’t say ok to his request. Some people are willing to pay me to help them wrap theirs but I declined. One of the biggest regrets of my life.
Then I showed him the said bean bags and we brazenly sat there for more than an hour chatting.

For dinner, I went to Wala Wala to listen to Randolf Arriola and eat the wings I’ve not had for a long time.

Every time I go there on Fridays, the crowds just talk really loudly and drown out Randolf Arriola. Sian. Should have left after the 1st set.


Chicken pepper rice at Pepper Lunch. Last time I had one was more than a year ago!! :O

By the way, scheduled posts are awesome.

Tanuki Raw & Ya Hua Bak Kut Teh

IMG_4666
Had lunch at Tanuki Raw with Hazel one day. Lunch prices are so affordable we bought 3. We weren’t very good at finishing them all though 😦
IMG_4664
I got the yakitori don because chicken and mushrooms πŸ™‚
IMG_4668
Delicious as always, although the name was misleading.
IMG_4665
IMG_4662
She got the chirashi don. I didn’t try some because I still can’t appreciate sashimi T_T
IMG_4657
She gave me an egg slice though. I think she was trying to win my affection. Or it could be a birthday present. I hope it’s not the latter because I’d really prefer a whole tub of tiramisu instead.
IMG_4671
This truffle yakiniku don was ordered because she was like “aiya I forgot I wanted to eat the beef too” or something like that.
IMG_4661
Looked damn good and tastes great. But I couldn’t eat much because it was too raw for my liking. Same goes for the onsen egg. So I just ate my delicious chicken :>
IMG_4658
I know it’s like Tanuki RAW but I thought that was because they had raw oysters .___. Or maybe not. I don’t know…
IMG_4659
Surprise wasabi always surprises me but I love it. Anyway, the lotus root chip was yummy. I don’t usually try to put lotus root into my mouth at all.

Then we went shopping. Supposedly went looking for windows, but I got cosmetics because birthday month means 2X points .___. how to not?? I also made her buy stuff to bump up my points. Sorry. But thanks.
IMG_4674
So Nars Gilda is awesome. I can just lightly tap a brush on it and it picks up quite a bit of powder, and when I put it on my face, I’m like shit! shit! too much!!! cos it really is too much. Then I’d look more like dying from exercise than healthy glowing. But it’s a pretty colour and now I know not to press it into my skin like I did other blushers.
Anyway, I love it plenty. I guess you could say it’s Baemax.

IMG_4672
Dinner was at Ya Hua Bak Kut Teh, where I’ve been wanting to try ever since people told me about it but I have no idea where it might be (other than “it’s near Zouk”), especially when no one can remember its name and call it the one with the yellow and red signboard. Thanks ah.
IMG_4673
Soup and you tiao is super shiok!! But the meat could work on being more tender. I mean I am using a Kodomo Soft & Slim toothbrush (for years) (they’re meant for kids 6-9 years old) (I’m 20 now) because it is the most gentlest little baby that doesn’t try to hurt anybody. Ya so I need my meat tender. But it’s good, and when I get older and have the feel for midnight bak kut teh, this is a total go-to πŸ˜€

IMG_4650
Days before I went to have dinner at The French Table because it looks good!!
IMG_4649
I got confit de canard with no-chilli aglio olio linguine because looks and sounds good.
IMG_4654
Portion is humongous
IMG_4656
but I didn’t like anything on the plate T_T it’s just nah…
IMG_4652
Truffle fries smelled wonderful. But eating it reminds me of Tenderfresh’s fries. No truffle taste.
The service was so darn good and reviews online for this place are sparkle sparkle. WHY???? T____T
Maybe one day I might give it another shot. Just maybe. T__T

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 πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ˜€

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!!! 😦


Watched Cats!!! πŸ˜€ 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 πŸ™‚




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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚


Ootoya. Again.

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

Bae chawanmushi.

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




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!! πŸ˜€


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 CafΓ© 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 tunnbrΓΆdsrulle. 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
KΓΆttbullar 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 bΓ€r och grΓ€dde, 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 😦

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 (β—•β€Ώβ—•) 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 MarchΓ© 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!” πŸ˜€

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.

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.

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.

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.

Frequented Brewerkz so much because we were doing a project on them.

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 πŸ™‚
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.

Went to a charity gig at Blu Jaz Cafe.


Photo with Daphne Khoo!!! πŸ˜€

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 πŸ™‚


^_^

I love the Abacus workshop and I got a certificate πŸ˜€


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.

PC130051
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 πŸ˜€


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

Maroon 5. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA πŸ˜€

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 Yōko 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. 😦 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!!! πŸ˜€ 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.

Caramelised banana pancake reminded me of After You CafΓ©.

Finally something delicious although I was stuffed from the pasta T_T

Valrhona chocolate soufflΓ© 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 bΓ©chamel 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 πŸ˜€


Toffee nut latte and they shouted Car θ™Ύ 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 πŸ˜€

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 πŸ˜€

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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

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

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


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.

Recipe: Zaru Soba

P1250299

This is so easy to make, I’m really just posting this as a filler. It’s also really affordable.

Things you’ll need (that you can all buy from Daiso if you don’t already have):

  • Soba (buckwheat noodles) – that’s like $0.50 per 100g
  • Mentsuyu (noodle sauce/soup) – I got mine elsewhere
  • Shredded seaweed – this is so important, it makes the dish so flavourful
  • Zaru (strainer) – you don’t really need this but it looks good in photos (especially if they’re not plastic ones like mine)
    and water, pot, chopsticks! And ice?
  1. Boil water, put soba in, cook for 3-4 minutes or as instructed on packaging.
  2. In the meantime, put 1 part tsuyu 2 parts water into a bowl for dipping. I don’t really measure them out, I just estimate and taste the dip. Also, I used cold water.
  3. Your soba is cooked! Drain them (decant/strain/just pick them out with chopsticks) and run them under the tap or shockΒ them in iced water.
  4. Plate your soba and top it with shredded seaweed! Don’t keep the packet yet because it won’t be enough. You can also add furikake!
  5. Grab some strands, dip them in the soup, put them in your mouth. Repeat until gone.

P1250294
I don’t really know why some people put ice on their soba or in the soup. Maybe you can just cook this in Siberia and not bother about it.
Anyway, it’s a food often consumed in summer to combat the heat.
I eat it because it’s delicious and takes very little time to put together.
If this recipe is wrong, I am sorry. I’m not Japanese. But it works for me and I love it πŸ˜€

Tried overpriced Ichiryu apple juice. It’s not bad but I still think Ringo Work is the king.

Thank you for reading!

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.

He ordered a slice of black velvet cake.

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!
