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! 😀

The Best of Times!

*Drumrolls*

Yes! I finally had a meetup with my bff! She’s Siru! The ultimate and officially bff that I have! She’s not the best bff that you would expect, but I guess we kind of are able to “click” and hit off well in a way despite the lack of closeness due to us pursuing different routes of education. Of course, she likes fashion stuffs which I really do and we do have some common topics on and off which I can’t share with you here. Hehehehe! 

ImageI got myself dressed in my new dress from MDScollections! I really love the back of the dress which I couldn’t show you without the help of someone taking photo for me! But still, it does features a nice white crochet top part and the bottom is chiffon and pastel pink! So pretty!

And, I wore my ankle strap nude flats that I bought from Vern’s in Malaysia! It’s a really light-coloured and pastel-looking day with this girly vibe! Feels good to be young! 😉

Image

So, we decided to settle our lunch at this small corner in AMK HUB called Hong Kong Sheng Kee Dessert. It’s a really small place but rather nice place to chill out and meet your friends!

Image

So here’s the promotion menu! And I ordered one wanton noodle soup and added on a Pomelo Sago and a supposedly carrot cake (Siru ordered wrongly and turns out to be a yam cake. YUCK! I really hate yam cake!)

Image

Here’s the wanton noodle soup! You could opt for dry or soup!

And here’s my verdict: It’s nothing really fanciful or amazing and neither do I feel “wow” about eating it. It’s really light and rather bland and nothing special, for the price of $6.50, I guess it wasn’t really worth it for that bowl of noodles. (THUMBS DOWN!)

Image

Here’s the add-on $1.50 of Pomelo Sago and yam cake!

My verdict?

Well, appearance-wise, it sure looks good but the taste was terrible. I’m not a really a yam cake person so not comments about it.

But the Pomelo Sago was BLEAH! It was really watery and bland with barely much mango smell and taste and the Pomelo? It was more of bitter than fragrance! And Sago? There was none! I guess you would say that I’m really very fickle with food, but dessert wise, like mango sago related stuffs, I’m extremely picky about it because my grandpa owns a dessert shop and he taught me what’s kind of mango sago or dessert is best and how to taste and identify them.

So, a bowl of Pomelo Sago at this shop? Save your money for a $1.50 Ice-cream sundae at Macs!

So, after our meal we went to Bugis Street because I wanted to get a bag and some clothes and she accompanied me so!

Well, I ended up buying a laser cut clutch in black and not a handbag and I bought this black bandage skirt to pair with the coral top I got from MDScollections! Now, I have the perfect outfit!

I’m a happy girl! Best of all, the bandage skirt fits me well and was really versatile with any tops! Wahooo!!! I could buy more bandage skirt in future!

Image

Oh! Did I mentioned that I got my very first LBD?

Ok, little black dress  (LBD) is a must-have in every girl’s wardrobe because it’s so versatile! AND…I finally got ONEEE!

(Ok, I took these photos after reaching home and trying on those loots hoping they would fit because shopping at Bugis Street doesn’t allows you to try the clothes as they are sold cheap.)

Image

And ending off the day with a photo of Siru and me!!!

I didn’t put a single drop or specks of makeup on my face! BUT!!!

Because I feel like myself, make-up-less and most importantly comfortable with her, for she doesn’t looks down on me nor find me ugly with so many eczema scars and freckles on my face (due to SUNTAN! Grrr~) and that matter a lot to me! I can feel confident and at ease with her without worrying about looking ugly at all time!

I really love this bff so much! She’s so nice :))

It’s a sunday, and I had my dinner with them at The Soup Restuarant located in the basement 2 near Fairprice Xtra in AMK Hub.

The food at The Soup Restaurant was pretty good and tasty, like their famous Samsui Chicken that we ordered and as well as others, and personally, I think their fried rice are also good too!

And luckily we came early today, else we’ll be queueing up (long queue out there!) and waiting…Of course, early birds gets the better seats! (Pssst. Those seats with curtains are so much more comfy as you get back rest rather than sitting on stools! So, come early!)

Image

They’ll serve you a small plate of steamed soft peanuts, sweet and nice! 🙂

I finish quite an amount, and there’s little left! Oops! 😉

Image

Porcelain table setting, very chinese style…

Image

Red cut chilli, not for me though! 😛

Image

Image

 First Dish that was serve to us: Samsui Chicken with ginger dip and lettuce for wraps.

(I love the tender chicken and the ginger dip sure goes really well with the chicken! Plus, the ginger doesn’t have that strong pungent ginger taste, it taste sweet!)

Image

 Up next was the soup-of-the-day, Spare Ribs boiled with carrots and corn soup, aka the ABC soup.

Image

 Then came the Seafood Tofu, with thousand island sauce for dipping.

Image

Up next, 8 Treasures which is a vegetarian dish, contains lots of vegetarian food items like mushroom, gingko nuts, and some others that I’ve not sure about the name…

Image

Lastly, came this Cherry Tomatoes Pork with Sweet n Sour Sauce…

(My meimei gobble down this entire dish, finishing all the meat that’s in this dish! Now, you’ll know the underlying reason for her being so fat!)

~~~~~~

So, there’s actually another dish called Stir Fried Onion Pork Slices, that one was pretty yummy, tasted really like those japanese bento dish, plus the meat was soft and tender, as it’s the “san-cen-rou” that they used. But, I didn’t snap a photo of that because my father started digging in before I could even snap a decent photo…Oh wellls!

I guess that’s it for today…See you in my next post…

TaaTaa!

Bra Shopping

Since it’s summer now, I’ve decided to get some new lingerie for myself for I was running out of it already…

As usual, I went to purchase the usual brand that I go for, Pierre Cardin, it is the only lingerie that has my size and is affordable. I used like wearing Young Hearts but for some reasons, it doesn’t have my size anymore, so I turned to Pierre Cardin which has cute and pretty bra designs!

This time, I went to Intimate Closet which was having an end-season sale…OMG!

This is the fitting room, it’s pretty right?

This is me trying to take a full view of the fitting room in Intimate Closet @ AMK Hub. The fitting room is really beautifully furnished with the colour baby pink as their wallpaper, making you feel like a Asian Princess with the pink coloured peony and the warm lightings!

I really love the place a lot!

Here’s my shopping haul! It’s buy 2 @ $39 and the 3rd @ $10! I love the pink with white polka dot one!

You should know the reason for why I can’t wear Young Hearts anymore… 😦

~~~~~

Anyway, I think that bra shopping is really fun! But, it would be even more fun if I could bring my friends along…however, I’m still rather feeling embarrassed if I were to shop for lingerie with them…

So, what’s your favourite brand of lingerie, girls?
