Old School Delights

I have heard a lot about Old School Delights!
Every time we drive by Upper Thomson Road, A would say “Hey wanna go Old School Delights?”
Hahaha! And yes, we finally made our way there earlier this week.

I have to say that this place put a smile on my face as soon as I stepped into the cafe.
There are lots of stuff that reminds me of my childhood days!
Here are some pictures to give you a virtual tour of the place if you haven’t been there before!

I LOVE that huge blackboards!
I want to have a HUGE blackboard in my future home too! šŸ˜€

There are toys and other stuff on sale.
Also a lot of old books that you can read or browse through when you’re having a meal.
This is a perfect place to have lunch alone because there are so many things around to keep you occupied.

They serve cakes, and other Asian food like Mee Siam, Macaroni Soup with Shredded Chicken, etc.
I like how we can write our orders down on a little whiteboard. Heh!

I had the macaroni and also tried their drumlets.
Good stuff!
OH! The Milo Dinosaur was awesome too! šŸ™‚

Feel a bit like tuckshop food. Heh!

There is a little “toy box” on every table that contains toys to keep you entertained while waiting for your food too.
Ours had five stones, erasers and a deck of Donkey cards.
I MISS THOSE ERASERS!!
I remember going to the school bookshop to buy those erasers when I was in Primary School. :p

Makes me feel like the kid who is always hanging around outside the bookshop again. :p

It is ęø…ę˜ŽčŠ‚ again.
My family and I gathered at Bright Hill early Thursday morning.
This year is a little different because Granny is no longer with us this year.
It is the first time I see Granny’s urn next to Grandpa’s. šŸ˜¦

This time round, after paying respects to my grandparents,
I followed my aunts and Mom to tour around the entire temple grounds and checked out the various temples.
This place is actually a really gorgeous place!
I hate that there is so many people at this time of the year though.

On our way there, my Mom and I were complaining about the traffic jam and crowds.
It was then when the taxi driver said something very interesting.
“This place is home to tens of thousands of people!”
“It is like Chinese New Year to them today!”

Hahahaha. True that.
I shall not complain.

I went to one of the shop there that sells all kinds of Buddhist stuff.
And guess what? I bought this! Hahaha.
I told A that I paid $18 for this and she laughed at me. šŸ˜¦
I thought it’s really pretty. *sulks*

IMG_2472

The following morning, A and I were tasked to head to the wet market at Toa Payoh to get stuff for her Mom.
It has been AGES since I last went to a wet market!
And it really reminds me of the days when Granny would bring me to the markets in the morning. šŸ™‚

This is our 7am face.

She brought me to Lorong 7 for some kickass breakfast! YUMMY!

Random. And I saw this signboard.
KNS Indian Muslim Food. Hahahaha!
Why oh why do people name their stores KNS? Why.

The skin on Boo’s ears is red and dry lately.
There is a funky smell too.
So we brought her to the vet at The Animal Clinic since the meds from Mt Pleasant didn’t really work.
I think I’m going to bring Boo to The Animal Clinic from now on.
The advice and service I get from the former is so much better! Hmm.

Here is the adorable Boo in the car, still oblivious about where she’s going.
Ahem.
So cute!

HAHAHAHA!
[Please ignore my blank face]

Boo has yeast infection in her ears and is on medication. šŸ˜¦
Hope she gets well soon!

And after complaining to The Cambridge Satchel, my bloody happy-looking batchel is finally here!
I love the embossing and I’m so glad I got the embossing done. Wee!

    Lilian – Sure! Will try to go there when I have time on hand again. šŸ™‚

    Ccxj – Mine is the 15″ batchel. All batchels got the same size, and they have top handles. I paid slightly more than $250 for this.

    blacksheep – thanks. I’m flattered.

    damian – The delivery time is a little hard to estimate. It could be as fast as one week. Mine took around one month. It was in the same order as A’s and hers came within one week. I saw in forums that some waited like 6 weeks or so too. So do order early if you wanna be in time for her birthday!

    kate – those were just paper that we printed and cut. Haha! there is a little card pocket on the bag so we slotted it in :p

    jassy – thanks a lot girl! I love it a lot too.

    gladys – i hope Boo get well soon too. thanks for your lovely concern babe! šŸ™‚

    joanna – the top is true to that color. šŸ™‚ it’s from Zara.

    xinyi – i’m glad to hear that girl! thanks again for coming all the way to meet us at ION. I can visualise you in that outfit and I think you’ll look smashing! šŸ™‚ Enjoy it!
