/2 JAN 2015/ ECP: walk bike eat

Hey guys! So it’s me again. Yeah busy busy start of the year but since it’s the Chinese New Year holiday why not do some updates?

Right after New Year’s Day I met up with YL and well we had fun. This is probably one of the coolest things I will remember for life: bicycle cafe hopping– a combination of two things I love to do. We started by renting bikes at ECP and made our way around the Katong area.
First stop: Chin Mee Chin Coffee & Cake Shop 
Specialty: Custard puffs and sugee cakes (unfortunately didn’t get to try that)
Meluvs: I’m not a fan of custard but this was creamy and light. Not too sweet and the pastry itself was really good. I also tried the butter cream swirl– pastry was great too but cream a bit too buttery for my taste.
Notes: Try to come earlier. There are many people who come here in the mornings for coffee and their eggs and pastries so it’s really difficult to get a seat. (We just bought take-aways as there was a really long line outside just to get in.)

Butter cream swirl and custard puff

We continued to cycle around East Coast Park for a while. (Actually it was to scout area F for my BBQ)

Second stop: Bar Bar Black Sheep (Tanjong Katong outlet) 
Specialty: Butter Chicken and curries
Meluvs: We couldn’t stay long but I ordered the butter chicken and garlic naan. I wanted more. If we weren’t in a rush I would stay there all day and keep eating it. The butter chicken has a really good sauce and it was just mouthwatering. Naan was nice and soft too. Great with the chicken.
Notes: There are two other outlets. Yes that’s right–one more at Bukit Timah and at Robertson Quay. They are bigger than the outlet we visited and offer a wider range of food so I’d want to check them out if possible. (You might want to do that too)

Last stop: With a Pinch of Salt (Not too far away from Bar Bar Black Sheep)
Specialty: Chocolate souffle, Jumbo Chick’s Leg (large portions and affordable prices)
Meluvs: Cute and vibrant atmosphere makes for a happy eating experience. I was looking forward to having dessert here but when I heard that their chocolate souffle was not available we had to settle with the lava cake. It did suffice however I was disappointed with the cheese fries because I had expected something special for having to pay $7-8 for one serving. 
Notes: Try out their mains. My friends have given good reviews about this place about how they have large portions and reasonable prices around $11-14 for food which tastes pretty good too.

Gardens by the Bay day

Hey guys! So yes as the title says, this is my Gardens by the Bay post omg this was 16 December 2014, super duper late but nonetheless here it is. Had a good day with my photography pals and I got to visit both domes this time. They are beautiful even if you aren’t there to take photos, so if you ever get the chance to go with close friends or ahem bf/gf, it would be a nice and relaxing experience.

My favourite of the two domes has got to be the flower one though. As much as the forest dome is cold and has a cool indoor waterfall, the flower dome is just too beautiful to pass.
We ended the day with llao llao, which I got to try for the first time wooh! Hahah I think I understand the hype for it but really, if the line is so long I wouldn’t bother lining up– it’s not that good. We didn’t wait long and had a table to sit down at so it was alll good haha.

Live. Laugh. Love.

AFA 2014

Some photos taken at Anime Festival Asia 2014 held at Suntec Convention Centre on 7 Dec, Sunday!

(Apologies for the late posts guys, but I am back from my hiatus.)


I had a lot of fun going to AFA! Got to take some great photos and awesome coses. I bought three badges as well as two posters hehe. I guess it was a last minute thing cuz at first I had some commitments to attend to, so I’m fortunate to have gone anyways.

Obviously, this is too too pass.

18 November: 55 above

Before heading over to Somerset 313 for our photography workshop my friend and I went to explore ION Sky, an observatory deck in ION Orchard. I for one have not heard of this place before so I was so suprised to find out it was 55 floors above ground level! As you will see from the following pictures I had a great time capturing some amazing shots. I have way more and the link for the gallery is below. 

Unfortunately it is an enclosed observatory deck so I had trouble with the glass obstructing my lens and all for certain shots. Although this makes quite a cool effect.

Stalking couples is my second favourite past-time.

Shots anyone?

So if you want to take a peek to some of the great scenery here in Singapore, check out ION Sky if you’re in the Orchard Road vicinity. What’s best is that it’s freeee. Just go to the highest floor of the mall, find the sistic counter, and the security guard will probably help direct you to the elevator which does to the 55th floor in the corner of ION Art.
