Not-So-Hollywood

I am a self-proclaimed movie buff. If you haven’t checked out my 2 other blog entries about my favourite movies and based on true story movies, you are in luck because that would mean you will have 3 new blog entries to read today! I just watched Drive starring Ryan Gosling yesterday night. It took me a while to understand why it was voted the best movie from 2011. But after discussing with A, we both agreed that the movie was tastefully done, and the development of the plot was smooth and comfortable. Seeing Ryan Gosling’s buff physique packed under his thin white tee was cool too. Haha! My hands are itching again to share another ten movies that I think everyone should watch at least once in their lives. In no particular order of credit, here are the ten awesome movies that I think you might love! ONE Memento is one movie that really blew me off my chair. Made in 2000, this movie is actually shown backwards. Although this show is all about …

SIXPEGS Giveaway

This is one of the many dresses that A actually likes (on me). And I think the shade of green is gorgeous too! Many thanks to Paper Buttons for the lovely dress. Really love the orange suede bag from Kate Love as well! Awesome material.

Actually

YES I permed my hair again! I am loving this new perm. It was more than a year ago when I last had a perm. Back then, my friends would call me Cupid because of the damn hair. HAHAHA! Some said I look like some random Korean boy band boys. HECK IT. I think I love it! I cut off those curls about few months after I permed, but this time round, I am determined to keep the curls for at least another 2 to 3 haircuts! As if like an addiction, A and I checked out another cafe. This time round, it was at Yong Siak Street and I knew of this place through a couple forums and through Ladyironchef! It is quite a small place and I think food is rather overpriced. Nevertheless, quite a nice place and I think my Black Truffles Mushroom sandwich was awesome. Coffee was good too. I never knew Yong Siak Street is such a happening place. SO many cute stuff here, I really love the place! Food …

Papa Palheta

I think I am addicted to checking out new cafes and pretty chill-out places. So here is another one to add to your ‘MUST GO’ cafes! And indeed, the ‘most important drink of your day’ is probably your cuppa coffee. A’s friend brought us to this cute little cafe couple days back and we were blown away! Tucked in a little corner along Bukit Timah Road, it’s like a breath of fresh air the moment you lay eyes on this place. It is quite hidden so it’s not visible from the main roads, but hey, that also means that it’s quieter and more peaceful in here! This place has a strange aura that makes it really welcoming. The people round here are all really friendly and smiley! According to A, a seasoned coffee drinker, the coffee served here are really good. From what I gathered, the coffee beans used at Papa Palheta are all roasted right there in the cafe! There is a special room where all the roasting takes place. The roasting takes place …

The Coastal Settlement

I don’t know about you, but I am one of those few Singaporeans who are quite not-cool when it comes to being informed about the new hip cafes or restaurants in town. Most of the time, I’m normally the one being brought around to check out new places. And I wish to change that! Hahaha. I visited two new places, one was recommended by an Instagram follower and the other was recommended by a friend. Absolutely loved this two new places because I’m such a big sucker for cute decor. Hope you will like them too! When I first heard that it is ALL the way in the East at Loyang area, I was quite turned off. But I guess being far away from the bustling city makes this place more attractive! I liked the place the moment I saw it. Quiet, quaint and the decor is pretty but not over the top. A lot of greens and Beetles all over the outdoor dining area. But once you set foot into the restaurant itself, it’s …

je ne change qu’en mourant

It means I will only change by dying. I got a new tattoo, folks! This time round, it was a new one on the wrist and I’m loving how it looks! Malvin from Primitive Arts at Far East Plaza did it for me. I think there is still some touching up that needs to be done. Shall wait for 3 weeks before I head back to fix it. These were some of the fonts I considered before getting the tattoo. Wanted to pick the 4th font, but the artist said that the tattoo needs to be much bigger to be able to show all the details. So, nope. Bleah. So I picked the 3rd font instead. This motto (or rather, phrase) came with the necklace A and I bought together. I love how the phrase sounded and meant. The tattoo artist tattooed the “q” as a “g”. Faints. Need to go back after 3 weeks to alter that part. Bleah! Other than that, I really love the new ink On a sidenote, I think my …
