Dear future partner, I

I’ve always told myself to find someone who can stop and see the world with me— from sunset and sunrise. I always imagined that I’d be able to find someone who could walk at the same pace as I did when I breathed the whole world in; someone who could run with me just to feel the wind in my face and the thrill of my heart banging against my chest; someone who would do all this not just for me but because he craved the exact same thing that I did— to live life to the fullest.

Coming soon: 4 April Hike

/7 June 2016/ Lower Peirce Reservoir

Hey guys~ today alpa_nat got her new camera so we decided to celebrate her birthday with a photog outing at Lower Peirce Reservoir, a pretty popular place for outdoor shoots. I basically had a not-so-tasteful lunch but after trekking around and shooting, we (more like I) fulfilled our craving for something cold at Ice Cream Chefs @Upper Thomson. Sorry no food photos this time, but if you’re in the area, why not try it out? I think it’s pretty good except for the fact that it was quite heavy on the cream and after two (quite large) scoops ($5.80 with free add-on woohoo), I had no space for dinner /cries/. They have daily promotions and their prices are what you would expect from a typical ice cream parlour. Anyways, photo time! P.S. don’t carry around food with you because the monkeys really can smell it and they will approach you!!!! so bring food at your own risk (or at least put it inside your backpack).

The Secret Route from East Coast Park to Marina Barrage you never knew

Hey guys~ for once I’m actually posting something on time. So block tests are finally over WOOOHOOO. That deserves extra applause, but anyways I’ll get right to it. The gang and I decided (of course in a very impropmtu manner) to go cycling at ECP to celebrate. But before that we had lunch with an unexpected but very welcomed 大人!! Yeah we all missed him dearly, clearly things weren’t the same with him around anymore…On to happier things! We had a good lunch and headed to ECP via the Kembangan park connector… but alas the weather was not on our side. Fortunately we had some sort of shelter to seek refuge in whilst the rain subsided. And finally here’s a peak at our (mis)adventures for the day!

/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.
