Been spending these few weeks with my bf..

Saturday, August 18, 2012

Tuesday was our 9th month anniversary, but this month we were pretty broke so had to maintain a low cost date but nevertheless, it was the company that matters most. :)

Dear and I went to the cosiest place in Pasir Ris, Buddy Hoagies. It's a cafe that I've been patronising ever since it's opened, especially during my secondary school days with my good friends. And everything seem to remain the same, except for the creatively designed menu.

It was a weekday, so we had Buddy Hoagies lunch set which is just $8.90 for the soup, main course, and an iced tea!

Dear ordered pan fried fish while I ordered BBQ chicken.

Pan fried fish, with onion rings and macaroni and cheese! 

BBQ Chicken, cauliflower and cheese, french fries!

Had a satisfying meal since we were so FULL. Dear found the food just okay, but I thought it was quite good.. Maybe it's because I've been eating there for so long, hahhaa.

Anyway, we took neoprints that day -_- Felt so ah lian wtf but don't question me why the idea kinda popped up in my head.. Maybe it's because I never took neoprints with my bf before? Hahah

On Thursday, some of us 2m05 girlies decided to meet up for a quick lunch @ Lena's at Tampines 1 to catch up with one another! Miss them so much :'(

Miss the old days when I get to see them.. and we'd laugh in class, hahaha.
The set lunch is quite cheap hehehe.

Beef Bolognese with red wine added! It's rather yummy :) 

After lunch, it was about time I had to work and Lydia had to go driving so we all took a photo! Hehe ^^


Yesterday was the last day of semester 1 and WAS SUPER HAPPY!!!!!!!!!!!!
Finally Semester 3.1 is over and it's time to anticipate my Ipoh Trip with baby and mummy!

Went to find baby awhile ^_^ He was quite busy so he left shortly after we met up :( But thankfully that night I went to meet up with him again!

Always the happiest to see him :') 

Waited for Xinyi for 2hours!!!!!! Hahhaha and finally she finished school and we went to shop for some school clothes for her, and I got myself a pair of flats which I am so in love with :)

After that went back to Dhoby Ghaut and find baby and he haven't ate dinner so we went to Kong Kee to eat our long awaited KL Hokkien mee.. just wondering if it's the same we ate at KL?

Along Geylang.. where all the great food are hidden here 

Ordered the highly raved food - their KL Hokkien mee.

Wow.. Looking good! We ordered the $10 which is the medium portion 

Yum yum Snapshot 1 

Yum yum snapshot 2! 

Can't wait to dig in...... we were craving for this like forever!

Myself ^_^ excited to dig in!

The Verdict: Our rating was about 6/10.
Not bragging but my maternal relatives are all chefs, yes even all my aunts know how to whip up decent meals, and the Dai Lok Mee (another name for KL Hokkien Mee) they cooked are seriously the best. Rich in flavour with a bit of prawn taste. However at Kong Kee, I felt that the noodle was seriously quite sticky? The taste was a little bland and just eating a few more bites it got a bit "gao wei." My dear, despite him being so hungry didn't even finish the plate of noodle :/

So what is the reviews all about? Singaporeans.. They seriously don't know what the real deal is. I doubt I will be coming back for their KL Hokkien Mee the next time, but I do wanna try their huge grouper.. Looks super tempting!

Today, dear had work at 4pm, and I had nothing on so we went for brunch at Changi Village at Chockfull of Beans.. Initially we wanted to go 126 @ East Coast Park (his previous workplace) but we ended up going CV since it's nearer to my home. I was a little reluctant to go CV cos they don't have parks to walk after a meal and beaches and pretty trees :(

But maybe it's a blessing in disguise cos the food at Chockfull of Beans at CV is seriously good!

Chockfull of Beans is this cafe at Changi Village, beside Chocolate Origins and they have really pretty latte art! They can do angry birds, puppy faces and many more. Heheh. They have NO GST nor Service charge!

Dear saw his ex colleague working as a barista there too.. And he was originally from One Caramel so I assume the desserts should be good? :P hahah.

Baby :) 

We ordered.........:
From Left: Cappuccino with a bear latte art! (Melts) and my Gryphon Earl Grey Tea served in my favourite tea pot :) 

Next up, our brunch!
Portobello Mushroom with Poached Egg topped with Parsley. ($11)
 This combination was like HEAVENLY and out of the world! When dear said we ate half half and exchanged, I was abit hesitant cos I love the mushroom!!!!! Hehehe. 

Dear ordered the top: Cubano Sandwich. ($12) 
It was seriously AWESOME with the pickles but I don't know what the meat was.. But you guys can go try it there. 

Super satisfied!

And you know what they say, when you eat something GOOD to kickstart the day, the day will go well for you! Apparently I believe it's true because it made my mood so good the entire day that I feel like I'm living in a fairytale or something.

Anyway my colleague was telling me to be a food blogger or something.. To try out new places people don't really know about and afterwards share all the hidden gems with everyone. I think my blog don't have such a high readership to do something like that though :(

Am looking forward to next week, it's dear and his colleagues' BBQ, meetup with Jiawen and passing her her personalised farewell gift.. and just working. :)

So weird not to have school anymore. But that is surely a good thing. YAY!


Day At Asian Civilian Museum

Monday, January 23, 2012

That Thursday, we had to make a fieldtrip down to Asian Civilian Museum at Raffles Place, Boat Quay because the event that was held was close to the purpose of our CDS - textile patterns. 

I didn't go school that day because I was late so I went to see the doctor instead. I was positive that I had conjunctivitis so the main purpose was to get medication. 

The doctor couldn't check my eyes coz I was wearing contact lens so he referred me to Changi General Hospital A&E instead becoz he suspect that I had corneal damage which could lead to blindness. I didn't go in the end :x and just persisted he gave me medication.

Oh well, if that makes you happy, doctor.

After that, went to MRT to meet Michelle Caden and Zhiqing and we headed to Raffles MRT Station and grabbed a quick bite before heading to the museum.

I could have swore it was the most boring museum in the world, but this time it was okay :)

 Patterns of Trade! They were mostly focused on Indian textile patterns.. 

 Stoneware dated back to the 1800s

Ornaments and accessories 

Caden looks really happy in this photo coz he thinks that THAT is his manhood. Gosh

Islam's studying of the movement of the moon


It is indeed a fruitful trip! Lovin' it! Especially the part when we  had so much fun at the "tea house" haha! 

Check out the last photo of my museum trip, it's the statue of Buddha in the lotus position meditating. I found it eerie however it kinda made me feel.. weird, I don't know.

Well, been meeting Ken for the past few consecutive days, and recently we went to catch the movie"The Viral."  Damn it's pretty good! Featuring Nicholas Tse and Jay Chou :)


Here are some random photos ;)

Went prawning at Pasir Ris farmway!

Reliving his childhood memories at Pasir Ris Park's big big web thingy~

Him cooking for his friends at Aloha Loyang resort! Fried rice and lettuce, it's damn awesome! 

Went to Changi Beach and chilled :)

My babeh and me waiting for the rain to stop~ HEHE

Went Vivocity's Japanese restaurant, Shin Kushiya and ate there!
The price is VERY steep, the plate up there can cost $20 easily ~_~

We ordered Foie Gras (Goose's liver) it's damn nice but for A SUPER SMALL portion, (bite size) it was $10!

The service was average, the food was quite alright but I don't think it's THAT GOOD, given the price we're paying for.
We wanted to make the salmon belly a little cooked but they told us there was a surcharge of $2 -_- 


This vege udon was pretty nice, but I thought I still preferred Sakae Sushi's beef udon!

Raw Salmon Belly.

FYI: I don't eat raw food.. I had my FIRST TRY of that monsterish looking salmon belly and I HATE IT. FUCK How the hell can people eat that?! It's so disgusting! The thought of salmons swimming in the deep blue ocean just kept popping in my mind :(
But he likes it.... so yeah whatever~

The last picture to end off the night!
Me and my beloved bestie, Thadshayiniyyy, you'll always be loved~

Just came back from Reunion dinner at Uncle William's house. It was a sumptuous feast!!!
But I don't have a picture of it :(

My aunt bought a clutch for me :) It's really pretty maybe I'll post it up soon!
AND YES............
