Another Friday Night

As you might not know, I have been having my internship and I work 5 days a week, 9.5hrs each day with 2 days off, friday and saturday.

Of course, I don’t just waste these 2 days at home and do nothing, but rather each friday night has been fully well-utilized by spending with my bff, Siru!

This friday night was a special one because it was the first night of the F1 Night Race and it was my first time spending time in town experiencing the F1 excitement with the crowd of tourists from all over the world.

Not only that, we went to the Han’s at The Great Eastern, the largest outlet in their chain and the place was a gorgeous and evoked great memories of me when I was kid where my parents would bring me there often.

I miss those good old times where I was being well-treated by them and as you know, I have family problems and because of it, it led me to being a very independent child. (I’m not going to further continue on about it, because it’s suppose to be a happy post!)

And I had my chicken chop with mushroom sauce! It was really yummy!

ImageThe best part of going out with my bff is that our dress code is not just the casual basics, looking shabbily, but rather, it is DRESSED TO IMPRESS!

This allows us to spend time and putting in effort to doll ourselves up to look good when we are out. I mean it’s a girl’s thing to look pretty and regardless of the function, we just want to look the best!

And here’s my #OOTD : Black dress from Taiwan, Feather Earrings from WeiYi on Valentines and my favourite black flats!

ImageAnd here’s my bff’s #OOTD!

ImageOf course, I taught her to pose! Look how pretty she is in the photo! 😀

And we took lots of photos, selfies to be exact!

ImageCuteness overload!

It’s BEST FRIENDS FOREVER!

I really enjoyed my friday night with this awesome babe, and although I may be repeating how happy I was each time I’m with this girl, and it might sound repetitive, but there is really no way I can express how feel so blessed to be able to spend time with her, taking tonnes of crazy photos for memories keepsake.

ImageAnd I shall end this post with a pretty photo I took of myself with my bff’s phone!

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.

Image

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.

Image

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! 😀

My Taiwan Video is up on Youtube !!!

So, here’s my video of a compilation of the bits and pieces of short clips taken during my study trip to taiwan!

Nothing fanciful, nothing much, a short performance by the performers from the Aboriginal Cultural Village and maybe sightseeing with Elmo on the high-speed rail.

Hope that you will enjoy it xD

T-A-I-W-A-N-!

It’s my 2nd overseas trip away from Singapore, and this time, I’m going to Taiwan, Taipei!

It’s actually a study trip to be exact, but it’s my second time flying off with Singapore Airlines on economic class. I could recall the last time travelling to Bali, I took Singapore Airlines too.

6 Days 5 Nights in Taiwan gone by in a swift before I even noticed it, I’m already back in Singapore. I stayed in different places, travelling from Taoyuan to Taipei to Yilan to Taichung and many other places, staying in Fullon Hotel Linkou, Plaza International Hotel and even farmstays in Flying Cow Ranch and Shangrila Leisure Farm.

The food in Taiwan was fascinating, yummy and tempting but I preferred the shopping part much more. Well, I ate awesome food like oyster omelette, extra large fried chicken chop, xiao long bao, mee sua and even drank milk tea!

For the shopping part, I managed to grab a few pieces of pretty apparels in the Taiwan’s largest night market- Feng Jia Night Market and also some cosmetics and accessories from Ximending. I really liked Feng Jia Night Market and if I had a chance, I would definitely go back there again and stock up my wardrobe!

So, this was my very first time getting a window seat on board the plane and I’m all hyped up!

Milk Steamboat: It had a milky smell and overpowering salty taste with no natural sweetness of milk.

SO, the taiwan trip was a very fruitful one, for I’ve brought back lots of knowledge and also clothes!

I would definitely want to go back to Taiwan to shop next time, maybe with my bff, Siru!
