Had an outing with colleagues and our dearest AP and the latter brought us to November 8 cafe in Thomson! I know there are quite a number of new cafes in the area but I haven’t had the chance to explore them all~

Open concept kitchen

But the bad thing about this concept is you’ll smell like a big breakfast after stepping out of the cafe =X

Off for movie date – Lucy! I hadn’t caught a movie ever since my last movie date was ruined. Didn’t even know what Lucy is and I actually thought it’s Auntie Lucy! >.<

Off to check out the Singapore Night Festival for the very first time! I remember last year I was doing traffic counting for this event and this year I finally had the chance to visit! Haha!

Decided to explore Creamier with Ah Tiff since I had been wanting to check out the place and it’s also rare for the east-sider to becoming over to this area! Again, the cafe was so crowded that we had to wait 30 minutes for the waffles! =O
But that’s not stopping me this time! MUST TRY this time!!!

Missed out these on Sunday’s post because there were some problem with the videos. But anyhow, after running all the errands and shopping with Bud, I went back home to welcome the arrival of my little prince!

He has been bugging to come over and it’s indeed very long since his last visit! Asked if he missed me and he actually nodded even though he just saw me last week *meltttttttttttttt*

He got us all so entertained again and I managed to hear him sing the carrot song again! Last week when he sang it for me, I was like secretly gushing over his cuteness!!!

Managed to catch it on video this time and I just kept replaying it! Hahaha! Those who haven’t seen it please watch, it’s so mad cuteeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!! Nad Nad even said his hand really looks like a carrot and indeed! The more I look at it the more I feel like biting *bite bite bite!* xD

And he just walked off like that after singing! 有气质! ROFL.

And this was taken some weeks ago. Short but can totally sense his shynesssssss~ Mad cute *pinch cheeks*! <3

New read for the week! Yes, I am a die-hard fan of Nicholas Sparks cheesy romance, so what~
 photo 20140819_100717_zps11985d5c.jpg

And I bumped into my primary school teacher in the bus on the way to work!!! I was skeptical if it’s her because she hasn’t changed a bit! I mean how can anyone still looks the same after 13 years right?!
 photo 20140818_090101_zps44c76412.jpg

Sent Bud her picture and we started discussing about it. Then after I alighted, I finally mustered the courage to ask if she’s 杨老师 and it was indeed her!!! Omgggggggg~ And she’s still teaching in Townsville after 30 years!

I knew she would still remember me once I tell her my full name because she has taught both my Sis and Bro before as well so she knows my mum pretty well! Most of my primary school teachers remember us because my mum used to make frequent visits to our school not because of our poor behaviour, but just to check on us -_-“

She’s one of my favourite Chinese teachers back in school because she loves to tell us stories, and I always enjoy her story-telling sessions so much! But I also remember that I disappointed her once when I stood up for a friend who was wrongly accused and she got so angry with my slightly-agitated attitude that she threatened to call my parents. So that night, I went home and plugged off my house phone line…HAHAHAHAHA! That was definitely one memorable incident, and one that I first learned what is 义气 (:

Start of a new week; start of a new project~ It was a lonely Monday because both Ally and Ping were on leave, but I was also very much occupied with work that I decided to skip lunch. It usually happens whenever I have a new project, just see the need to chiong till a satisfactory level so that the client feels safe to let me handle the project.

Was mad tired on the first day of the week as a result, but also because I didn’t catch enough rest over the weekend :( Thought I would be heading home to rest but came an impromptu meetup with PPGs! Again, 义气 over anything so I dragged myself over to Nad’s house for a mini house party while we accompanied her on her stand-by night! Thank goodness she wasn’t called up in the end~

SUPER YUMMILICIOUS Mushroom Brown Rice Lunch! ((:

Received a text from the super nice Balaclava‘s staff last week informing me that the place’s gonna close soon at the end of the month due to end of lease. First Canelé and now Bala~ Even the nice pancake stall near my office has closed down few months ago! -CRY!!!!- There goes all my favourite places!!!

Since I couldn’t make it for their farewell party, I decided to make a last visit there on their second last ladies’ night! Really appreciate and touched that the staff actually bothered to message the customers to inform them about it; such service (:

The 1hr 25mins rainbow cakes surprise <3

Cause I was too engrossed in work till I didn’t have time to check my phone!!! Can imagine a silly cat waiting and waiting for me to see the message! Felt really bad when I finally saw the spam of messages x.x

 photo 20140821_192436_zps627c4f07.jpg

Feeling rainbow nevertheless ((:

Though something nasty happened later and I gobbled up the 2 cakes, I still managed to have a good taste of them. The original one has a tinge of lemon in it and it smells good! Tastes good too of course!

All-time favourite!
Anytime, anywhere!

But somehow all the fruits including durians look sooooo small nowadays that the 3 for $10 one actually looks smaller than my $1 durian!!! So in the end we bought the box one cause they look more worth it…hehe. When it comes to durian, quantity > quality :P

Cafes & Homemade

Finally cafe-hopped again and this time round, it’s all the way in the east! I am usually quite lazy to travel so far but since the little one has been bugging me to check out this cafe together and I also happened to be going to the east for dinner, I finally made my journey to the east to check out this To-gather Cafe (:
 photo 20140816_174322_zps2ea259ad.jpg

Apparently, it’s like the must-try cafe in the east and especially in Bedok area!
 photo 20140816_174309_zpse12a982f.jpg

I like the place because of all the beautiful words around the wall~

And what’s more important than a beautiful laughter each day? That’s why I am a sucker for people with good sense of humour I guess.

We were actually there to check out their matcha lava cake and after spending a longgggg time deciding on which mains to order, we ended up forfeiting them and chose 3 desserts instead!

Chocolate Lava Cake

 photo 20140816_165249_zps1e65260c.jpg

Tiramisu supposedly with alcohol but I can’t taste it!

The matcha lava cake is definitely awesome especially for green tea lovers! Though it wasn’t thatttt flowy like the chocolate one, it was still pretty unique and good, especially when topped up with an ice-cream with caramel sauce! Woooots~!
 photo 20140816_165121_zpscd5af0db.jpg

The chocolate lava is pretty nice too but a lil‘ too mainstream. But dark chocolate lovers will love this because the chocolate is thick and leaves a bitter-sweet taste in your mouth!

Mission accomplished!

We were so full that we decided to walk back to Bedok Mall and the 5 bus-stops distance actually didn’t seem that far! Shopped around Bedok Mall for the very first time and look what I found! It’s my QUEEN BEE – a bigger version of my current bee ring!!!
 photo 20140816_184506_zps1265d742.jpg

Look at the size difference! A pity that the wing is pink but I still bought it nevertheless! :P
I can no longer find them anymore because the shop in JB that I used to buy them has officially closed down, so I need to collect them all before they extinct!

A line of beesssssss~

Off for dinner at Anna’s house and it’s really sweet of her to have invited us over for a good home-cooked meal! It’s been so long since I last received such a warm invitation and her cute mum is so excited to promote her famous homemade yong tauhu…hahaha!
 photo 20140816_203403_zpseffbd556.jpg

It’s so nice to see 老师s again as well because the ladies were rehearsing at Anna’s place so it was a rewarding dinner for them! 我有口福了。。。嘻嘻!And as usual, it was a full-of-laughter dinner over drinks! :D

At first I was still a lil‘ hesitant about joining too early because Mommeyyyyyyy would only join us late after she touch down, so I may be left out. But it turned out that I didn’t feel so at all that night and we had so much fun laughing at each others’ jokes! They also discovered and were amazed that I can actually drink that much. ..hahaha!

I really like how despite the different background (as in dance background), different status and different age, they never once made me feel left out. It’s like we can just talk so casually and about anything; they had never made me feel like, “Oh you’re not a dancer so you’re not part of us” or “Oh you’re just a participant so why are you here?” When we’re at the table, we are all equal.

Oh one of the joke of the night happened while we were making fun of Anna’s mum – Mdm Pok’s surname.

Anna: My mum and my dad very jialat, because my mum’s surname is Pok and my dad’s is Leow, so add together it’s Pok Leow!

Anna’s mum: Yah that’s why now pok liao (broke)!


Anna’s Sis: Then my husband and mine also very jialat, cause his surname is Seow, so Seow Leow (siao liao) -_-“


Me: Then I think I can’t get married to any of your family members also. Cause my surname is See, so See Leow (si liao)! x.x

Hahahahahahahahahaha!!! So so00 soo00oo much laughter in a night and especially more when Mommeyyyy finally came back from Aussie! So after the Cinderellas left, the 3 of us actually stayed up till like 2am plus to chit-chat! Wish I can have my own house party and stayover tooooooo!

Was left with a plan-less Sunday after I made the impromptu decision to back out from the buffet high-tea~ Thought of the expiring Loft Cafe waffle deals that I bought and hadn’t have a chance to use yet, so I had an impromptu Bud-date instead!

 photo 20140817_135648_zps29f1dc4d.jpg


Bud was also amazed by how good the waffles are~ Thank you for accompanying me for them and for running my errands with me!!!

Accompanied him for tie-shopping after that and I had almost forgotten how to tie a tie! Gosh~ How can I ever forget that. It’s a skill that every girl should acquire! Not the nicest attempt though…hehe.
 photo 20140817_155340_zps04c9941c.jpg

And after much research, tasting and contemplation, I finally splurged on Goodwood Park‘s durian mooncake this year! I had been saying I wanna get them each year but every time I just couldn’t bear to buy them, because they are so expensive!!!

So this year, I finally decided that I will just splurge once to try and that’s it, since I don’t like to have regrets and I wouldn’t wanna die not trying them…hahaha! Was contemplating between Goodwood and Home’s Favourite because despite Goodwood having a more reputable name for durian stuff over the years, the latter has also been receiving fantastic and in fact, even better reviews than Goodwood!

I managed to sample Home’s Favourite and Bud and I both think that it’s okayyyyyy. Skin is a little thick and the mao shan wang durian is nice, but still not as wowwwwww as we had expected, given the price. Goodwood doesn’t give out sample, which I guess is a tactic that I fell for, because I ended up buying just so that I can really TRY!
 photo 20140817_201136_zps006d9732.jpg

Furthermore, Goodwood has 2-piece set, which is also why I chose it, because even if it’s not nice, at least I only splurged on 2 instead of 4! Though $40+ (before discount) for 2 mooncakes is still super expensive!!! *heart painnnnn*
 photo 20140817_201054_zpsfc691a11.jpg

In the end, the verdict is …
Home’s Favourite one is indeed nicer!!! T.T

Goodwood‘s skin is even thicker than Home’s Favourite, and worse, harder! The filling was shiok but still not any better than Home’s. Now I finally understand what buddy’s friend (whom we bumped into) meant by Home’s Favourite ones are like ice-cream – you can never cut them in proper pieces.


My most expensive mooncakes ever.
But still, no regrets! At least I finally tried!!! And still shiok~~~


I am typing this because I am fuming right now with someone’s dirty act and I am gonna make this official once and for all. If you have anything against me, come to ME personally. You DO NOT drag my work in nor disrupt the lives of the people around me. Once you do that, it’s official; I will not hold it down further. You can have all the time to go after me, tracing my life, stalking my blog or going to the extent of attempting to follow me in Instagram (but deleted your request later on; how embarrassing to be caught stalking), I don’t fucking care. Just don’t disrupt my work or anything where my passion lies. You have lost that bit of respect I am left of you and instead, what I feel of you now is just shame. I feel ashamed for you. Ashamed for all your dirty acts, one after another, despite of acting all “holy“. Geesh. But before you go on with another sneaky dirty move, my piece of advice is – You’re just digging your own grave deeper and deeper right here. So don’t bother blaming others after that.

Food For Thought

As the last Canelé outlet at Lido will officially cease its operation on the 17th this month, I decided to make a trip down to have one of my favourite macarons for one last time before they are gone :(
 photo 20140811_210845_LLS_zps6b0d33e9.jpg

Too bad they were left with really few flavours for the day so I could only pick these 3 – salted caramel (my must-have!), rose and yuzu. Their salted caramel used to be one of my mood-lifters, and now I have 1 less thing to make me happy…
 photo 20140811_210748_LLS_zpsd8ac8a82.jpg

Ironically, I was browsing through this book from a colleague who has just broken up. Then we talked about finding something that makes ourselves happy each day, like that #100happydays thing that went on for a while you know.
 photo IMG_20140813_173535_zps216c6596.jpg

So the happy thing for the day was that I pampered myself with a good massage! Actually it was because my neck was getting so damn stiff, so is my lower back.

Much appreciated dinner (:

Had a super super impromptu advance birthday celebration for Ally! Ping just suddenly came into my room to discuss about the celebration since she was also going on leave the next day and Ally would be on leave on her birthday next week too. Yea so we came up with this impromptu decision to celebrate before everyone’s gone and the next thing we know, we were in Sheng Shiong getting cake and pressies! Haha!

In the end, guess what we lugged back for her? A 6kg watermelon – her favourite!!!

Sundate with loveboy

I have always been looking for cafes nearby that I can grab some cakes for le loveboy on the way but there really ain’t many nice cakes around here. But I recently found one hidden someone in Upp Thomson! :D

 photo 20140810_132725_zpsd9275091.jpg

aka Ply Baked Goods (:

It’s so well-hidden that I almost missed it. I was there specially for the rainbow cake after seeing a junior posting a picture of their yummy-looking cake!

 photo 20140810_163102_zpsd692319f.jpg

Nicely packed in a box!

 photo 20140810_163131_zps6ef05de8.jpg

And boy~ The $8 slice of rainbow cake is huge!

I also got myself a slice of durian cake (how can I miss out on that right?) and despite it being a lil’ pricey for its size ($8.50), it was an absolutely no-regrets choice! I was intending to save some for Sis to try but as she was showering, the cake got smaller and smaller and eventually disappeared! HAHAHAHA. It was soooooo good that I couldn’t help it! Looks like I’ve found a new hideout (:

Eventually he ran off, which explains this ugly dejected face of mine when I snapped. A picture speaks a thousand words -_-“

The best that I could get~
Mai hiam buay pai liao.

Oh he has also reached the “为什么” stage whereby he asks “为什么?” for every single thing! And he always asks in this nonchalant “为什么~?” manner, as though he’s just asking for the sake of saying those words! Hahaha!

Vic: 你再不睡觉爸爸要拿藤条打你了啊!

Isaac: 为什么~?


Took the boy to the Singapore River after his nap because he had been whining about wanting to see Merlion after a school’s handicraft session on Merlion~ Chanced upon a performance outside Esplanade and Isaac happens to be a great fan of live performances, including getai!

Le boy enjoying the music~

He was even tapping along with the music later on! Vic wanted to test to see how long he can sit there watching that, but he backed out in the end, because it seemed like the active boy really could sit there the whole day!
