Food Review: JustAcia!

I have been going to JustAcia to fill my tummy whenever I was at Dhoby Ghaut.

What I can say is that the food, isn’t really good, but still, it’s edible and decent enough.

Usually, it’s not the food that tempts me from going there, but rather, it’s the free flow of soft drinks, soft serve and self scoop ice-cream that tempts me!

ImageThe way they serve your food to you looks very Japanese.

And it comes with a soup and kimchi as well as a green mug for your drinks and a tiny metal bowl for ice-cream.

Deep Fried Dory Fish with melted Cheese on Rice Set- $8.80 (exclude GST)

The food looks pretty good, but taste average, the food is actually reheated in the microwave if you were to peep through their open concept kitchen.

Steamed Dumpling Set- $5.90 (exclude GST)

The dumplings were nothing fanciful at all, tastes like those frozen ones where you get from the supermarket, the sauce was bland and had barely any taste.

Nonetheless, I would recommend you to go there for their yummy free flow of ice cream and it’s really a nice place to chill-out and meet your friends, have a group chat or something. They won’t chase you away and you can spend your time there for as long as you want! 😀

Haji Karim Coffee House!

I have been doing several takeaways from Haji Karim Coffee House lately due to my midnight hunger pangs, I just needed some food and being lazy and with limited food options at night, I decided to try out the food there since it’s a 24 hours eating place.

Turns out that the food there is not bad and the price range is roughly about $3.50 onwards for the food and for pratas, it’s slightly pricier probably due to it being 24 hours. 

I wouldn’t recommend you to go there for the pratas though, the pratas are relatively chewy but not crispy because they reheat the cooked pratas which makes it lose it’s crispiness. The curry dip is also too salty which I really don’t like it.

However, I do have to recommend you for the nasi goreng, mee goreng, maggi goreng and the many other dishes!

ImageHere’s the menu that I stole from Google but you can try to take a look from the menu. As a chinese, I don’t quite really understand what all those means but, just try your luck ordering something there. And if you don’t take spicy, just tell them no chilli and they will whip up something nice for you.

ImageThis was what they whipped up for me during my very first order there!

I told them mee goreng, but it turns out to be mee goreng (something) I don’t know what it is because the way it’s cooked looked like mee goreng seafood but there’s no seafood except chicken which tastes so so GOOD la!

ImageOn several occasions, I tried to tell the Indian uncles about wanting that same mee goreng that I ordered on my first time but turns out that I keep getting this Mee Goreng, most likely it’s the original or Indian style for there is really a strong hint of indian spice in it.

I’m quite sad because I wasn’t able to know what was the mee goreng that I ordered on my first attempt and it’s just really sad for it taste so good!

As for this reddish mee goreng, it’s very fragrant and nice but I’m not in favour of the indian spice smell and as well as it’s slightly oily though.

ImageAnd recently, I just ordered this Nasi Goreng Ikan Bilis which was recommended by many people in the food reviews.

I have to say that I’m really impressed by the taste, it wasn’t too salty but smelled good and taste awesome too! For a non-fancy looking fried rice, it was really fantastic!

The ikan bilis were crunchy and they were pretty generous with it and there’s the usual onions, greens and cabbage.

I really do recommend you guys to try out their food if you have midnight hunger pangs like me!

But just keep your expectations low in case you’ll get disappointed, but with limited choice of food available at the stroke of 12, the food at Haji Karim is considered pretty decent!

So here’s the address of Haji Karim Coffee House: Blk 529 Ang Mo Kio Ave 10, S560529.

It’s at the corner of the block and the shop front is facing the main road and is right beside the carpark which makes it really convenient to spot and park your car too! 😀

Friends from Work!

Friends from Work!

Ok, I know look disastrously ugly and cui in this photo because it was taken in the morning and I only had like 3hours of sleep and then waking up for work again.

But still, it was a nice photo capturing my OOTD!

Anyway, these is the group of people that I have been working together in Regent this holiday and they have been very awesome peeps than the people I work with the last holiday!

So now you know why I enjoyed working in Regent this holiday so badly. They are really fun and funny people!

Most importantly, they don’t bite!

And, the girl on my left is Kendy, she’s really pretty right?

And and, the guy in this photo is Kah Jun, from the same agency too! I’ve worked with him a couple of times already, but it’s only recently we starting talking. Haha, blame me for my shyness!

As for the other two girls, I have known them through the Regent’s Staff Dinner and Dance. They are very nice people too!

Anyway, I love this holiday working in Regent so much because meeting and knowing a group of fun, funny and friendly peeps and working with them was so much of a joy despite all the tiredness in me!

The Cool and Awesome Nail Art!

I’ve been bored during the holidays so meanwhile, to kill time, I decided to do some manicure using scotch tape!

It’s so simple and so cool! 

Of course, excluding the time spent on doing it, the end results is just WOW!

ImageThis is my left hand! Look at all the different designs on my nails! I love the ones on my thumb and pinkie!

Image

This is my right hand! Look at the heart shape on my thumb! SO CUTE!

Well, it’s pretty easy to learn how to do it, all you need is lots of plenty time and scotch tape or any sticky tape that you have and scissors! 

Just paint the base layer first, for me I painted my base glittery black! After which when the base coat is dried, just stick the scotch tape on your nail and paint the non-covered part with another colour of your choice! For me I had it painted blue!

When your nail is just dried, just remember to seal it off with a top coat! VOILA you’ve got beautiful nails like mine! Hehe 😀

 

There’s always a vast difference between the reality and your fantasy.

It’s alright to dream once in a while but you have to get back on track eventually.

A New Haircut, Perhaps?

I’m so sick of my mid length hair that is growing way too slowly and I realized that as my hair grew longer, I lose more hair which didn’t happen to me back then until I started hair-dye and 4 months of weekly hair-gelling for school (I’ve stop the hair-gelling already, but my hair keeps on dropping!).

Perhaps I should snip off my hair again? I don’t know, I really want a nice long hair but it’s too unhealthy and it keeps on dropping which really worries me because I’m afraid of the widening of hairline.

Image

 

This is my current length of my hair and because I often tie my hair in a bun at home, my hair has become relatively wavy and I have done some inner highlights at the salon months ago and I really love them because the copper blonde looks really good! If I were to cut my hair, my inner highlights will be gone as well. 😦

Also, my fringe are slightly overgrown and out of shape that I have to resort to pinning them up occasionally

I dunno if I should cut my hair, and if I should, what sort of hairstyles would suit my face? My face seems to be very long but it can’t be considered to have that “oblong” face shape because I don’t have really sharp jaws and neither does my face fall into the “oval” face shape category. This really gives me a headache on which hairstyles or haircuts would actually suit my face the best.

Anyway, I have found some decent hairstyles and cuts that I really like which makes me kind of indecisive…

Image

This one has a really nice and tidy shape where the length of the hair meets the jaw and gives it some slight contours and the bangs really do make the face look slightly smaller. 

Image

This one is a slightly longer version of the hairstyle above.

Image

This one is a very simple shoulder length hairstyle with over-grown bangs, I’m in favour of the length but not the bangs because it would really irritate my eyes though…

Image

This one has side fringe and it sure looks good too!

I really can’t decide what to do with my hair, seriously. Everyone says that I look weird with layered bangs, look cute with bangs, look pretty with side fringe and I have no idea what should I decide on…

Damn, deciding on a haircut is so troublesome!
