[SINGAPORE] The Loft Cafe @ Chinatown

Slowly adapting to this city and making my Sundays like how it used to be. Somewhat got a good deal from Qoo10 and decided to have waffles for brunch. Awesome Sunday I would say!

I was never a strawberry person until lately. May I present to you Strawberry Cream Waffle (UP: $9.80). photo 20140817_115803_zpsea05d0a4.jpg

The affection when you are able to ease your cravings. I love how that feels. photo IMG_20140817_115907_zpscc63ad8d.jpg

Choices! Oh, ya! Did I mention that I have a new hair colour now? Not blonde though, just that I haven’t got my hair coloured in a long time. photo 20140817_120138_zps79616208.jpg

… and then I fell in love with strawberries. photo IMG_20140817_120515_zps4f67a066.jpg

[SINGAPORE] Alive Museum @ Suntec City Mall

I missed the Trick Eye Museum when I visited Korea last year, and this time, all thanks you OMY for giving me this opportunity to visit the Korea’s first and original 3D entertainment attraction Alive Museum in Singapore which was opened on June 12th, 2014.

The Alive Museum is located at Suntec City Mall’s premises, between Tower 3 and Tower 4, sprawled over 10’000 squarefeet. This is a place for ultimate selfie. It is claimed to be the biggest 3D illusion museum in Singapore which offers a sensory experience that tricks one’s visual, physical and environmental perceptions, bringing fantasy to reality. It is also the world’s largest chain of such entertainment concept, where 3D art comes alive which originated from South Korea. There are eight branches currently which are located in South Korea, Thailand, Vietnam, Turkey and three in China.

Hence, its wrong if you are visiting this place without a camera. I spent approximately 2 hours on taking photos (*including queuing) around the entire museum.

Cambodia in The Making

A million thanks to Satkuru. He who managed to captured all the wonderful moments back in Cambodia, January 2009. Each time he compiled and post them up on Facebook, I’ll have a good laugh and it brings back the splendid time we had in Cambodia. Not to forget, the crew made the trip a tremendous one.


*Credits to Satkuru.

Selamat Hari Raya, folks!

The best things in life are absolutely free. I have not been home for more than two months and this duration is so far the longest being away from home since I moved south. Since it will be a long break for Raya, I decided to be home for four days most and yes, I was literally back for Raya. Hence, visiting was part of the big thing on Raya day one itself.

It has been a norm to visit a good friend and her family yearly but I kinda missed it for two years now. So, I told her that I will make it this year for her Nasi Sunkist! :P IMG_20140728_3 Its so good to see her again and the long catch up session was great! Back in those days, we used to buka puasa together during the fasting month. Now that I am 600km away, I can’t be doing so.

… and yes, if you are wondering, this is my new baju kurung. Just cuz all along I have only one pair (the purple one which I have been wearing for the pass few visitings) , I have finally bought this one for a change.

Meeting the ex-colleagues was the fun thing too. Those are the things which I won’t get to do often ;)

SELAMAT HARI RAYA MAAF ZAHIR & BATIN TO ALL!

Till the next Raya! ;)

Gartien 小田佳园 | Pineapple Cake Mid Autumn Edition

Gartien 小田佳园 launches their Mid Autumn edition of Pineapple Cakes with a very attractive packaging. I have got my hands on the delicious box of pineapple cakes last week and managed to finish them in two days. No, not by myself but I’ve been sharing them with my colleagues here in Singapore.

 photo 20140723_100435_zpsc9f215a5.jpg

Its always a norm in the Chinese culture to send gifts, be it for family or for friends for Mid Autumn. Looks like this time around, we do have an alternative of having Pineapple Cakes as gifts with such presentable packaging. photo 20140730_082529_zps2859722b.jpg photo 20140730_083302_zps1be919de.jpg photo 20140730_083516_zps3e8e1221.jpg

The pineapples are sourced from a local plantation nearby and they are painstakingly hand-cut into cubes, very time-consuming but is necessary to retain its distinctive flavour and texture. they are then cooked for 12 hours until luscious golden brown. The shortbread pastry made from pure butter will be enveloping generous amount of pineapple filling and baked to PERFECTION. Rest assured that they contain absolutely NO preservative and NO artificial flavouring.
