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 is here!
A had her Ham and Cheese sandwich, mine was Black Truffles Mushroom.
YUMMY!
Food was served on old-school looking plates. Heh!

I really like how they serve the water in these bottles.
Look like poison. Hahaha.

Across the street from Forty Hands, you can see other nice cafes, restaurants and shops
like Open Door Policy, Books Actually, Social Haus, just to name a few.

But what caught my attention was the famous Books Actually.
I’ve heard the name of this bookstore so many times but have yet to checked it out.
I have to say, I SERIOUSLY DIG THIS PLACE!
It is SO adorable and everything from the decor to the stuff they have in there to their choice of music was awesome!
I went trigger-happy the moment I stepped in there.
Here is a little virtual tour!

The front of the store has mostly books, stationery, notebooks and other little stuff.
But there is a door at the side that leads you to the back of the main store area.
That place is a little treasure trove!

I love these vintage looking suitcases.
Not very expensive too, $150 for the smallest one.
I was super tempted to get one there and then.
But managed to curb myself. *proud*

As we walked out of the store, we saw some notices at the side of the door.

Then we walked nearer and checked it out…

Nice sense of humour. Lol.

If you have been following me for the last few entries, you probably know A has 3 cats.
Just couple days ago, the 3 cats had a pretty little visitor!
A’s neighbor found a stray cat and they took the cat in.
But I think the cat probably ran out of the house and sneaked into A’s house few days ago.
After a little panic attack, they returned the cat to their neighbor and
learnt that they are actually going to put the lost cat up for adoption soon.

It is a pretty little Persian cat and she is SO SO SO tame.
I’ve never seen a cat that didn’t even flinch when we bathed her.
And when we pushed it further by whipping out the hairdryer to dry her, she was ok with it too!

She is such a lovely pet. 😦
If you should know anyone who has recently lost a Persian cat, please let me know!

That aside, we brought the little lady up to A’s room to meet the cats and also gave her a nice warm bath.
She is such a beauty.

I also want to take the chance to say a big THANK YOU to Two Happy Flowers!
I love the polaroid album and it’s damn cute because the color of the front cover can be changed between pink and grey.
Cuteness. My polaroids are all happier now. Heh!
