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! 😀
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.
OH! The Milo Dinosaur was awesome too! 🙂
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
There are cakes and other old school biscuits you can grab and go too!
Take a look at the cute little trinkets they sell in there!
Makes me feel like the kid who is always hanging around outside the bookshop again. :p
And look at this! The Teenage Textbook!
I used to read this when I was a kid!
Thanks for the wonderful afternoon, Old School Delights!
It is 清明节 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. 😦
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. 😦
I thought it’s really pretty. *sulks*
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. 🙂
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.
And my favourite photo – the 80km/h face.
[Please ignore my blank face]
Boo has yeast infection in her ears and is on medication. 😦
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!
I also gave my bag a moustache!
NOW IT LOOKS LIKE MY BAG! 😀
Gave A’s bag a bow tie too. Hahaha!
A and I were at our favourite hangout at Orchard ION again yesterday.
But this time round, we met up with the winners from the recent SIXPEGS Giveaway!
Very annoying A.
Congratulations to Jingting, Janice and Xinyi! 🙂
And thank for the sweets, Jingting!
I also painted my nails!
This time it’s the pretty Zooey Deschanel tuxedo nails. Cuteness!
Will be right back with more updates!
Tata for now!
Old School Delights is my favourite too! 🙂
There’s this nice cafe that you shld try too!
It’s called Next Door Deli! The place and food are great! 🙂
Lilian – Oh really? Cool! Thanks Lilian! 😀
Waiting for ur post on that! 🙂
Hi!! Maybe i know what type of satchel is it and how much it costs for one satchel?
you are my new eyecandy.
Hi, the batchel looks nice and i just checked it on their official website. was thinking of getting one for my gf’s bday. how long did the delivery take? and is yours the 15″ model?
how did you get the bow and moustache on your bag? that’s really cute!!
i like your black bracelet next to your watch 🙂
Get well soon , Boo! 😀
I LOVE YOUR SATCHEL. ❤
Hey was wondering where A got the cobalt blue long sleeved shirt she was wearing. Is it true to that blue or cos of the camera effect? Thanks!
thanks again for the gift! 🙂 i’ve already started using the bag and i love it! 😀
Lilian – Sure! Will try to go there when I have time on hand again. 🙂
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! 🙂
joanna – the top is true to that color. 🙂 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! 🙂 Enjoy it!
where you buy ur granny glasses?
hey eyecandy, can you dress like her? http://29.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m0hw74i5jl1qbe6e1o1_1280.jpg
I always bump into you at events but im always too shy to say hello 😦 saw A & u at the Puma event today and the two of you look absolutely gorgeous & cute together! 🙂
hey pegs, can you advice me more on the cambridge satchel cos i’m not sure which size to get them as i’m afraid size 15″ may be too big. is it? please advice! 🙂 thanks!!
Nice cafe near Serangoon gardens too!
hello! can i know which cafe did you visit at orchard ion? the food looks good!
Inlove with that cafe! So genius to just write your order on the white board! Saves time!
I found your blog today! I’m glad I did!
