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 …

Love, me

A and I visited this new place we have been wanting to visit for the longest time. We are a big fan of pretty places and when we found out about this place called Antoinette from some TV show, we were thrilled and cannot wait to go there right away! This is not an advertisement but I really wanna share this place to anyone who wants a pretty place to have tea and nice sweets. There are actually 3 different branches and you can find their address from their website. The one we went to is at Penhas Road and it’s really nice to find such a place in a boring looking place like Penhas Road. :p This place reminds of the Laduree in Paris! I love the pretty blue theme of this cafe and the gorgeous European decor. Here are some pictures of Antoinette. This place is so pretty that all the pictures turned out very well no matter where and how I take them. Hahaha! There are a lot of pretty cookies and …

Chiang Mai II

Before I begin, let me wish everyone a Happy Chinese New Year! Hope the Dragon Year would be a HUAT HUAT year for everyone and may everyone be happy, sexy, glam and healthy! ♥ This Chinese New Year has been a rather quiet one for everyone in my family. We didn’t do any visiting this year because of Grandma’s recent demise, but we still had fun at our family chalet! 🙂 I visited A’s place though, and it was a lot of fun meeting her family. I hope A had fun at my family chalet and family dinner too. Heh! I also received some pretty clothes to wear for the new year! Special thanks to SugarThreads for the super adorable striped dress and LustMonday for the comfy and stylish looking chiffon shirt dress! Many many love! I shall continue with my travel to Chiang Mai! This is probably my favourite part of the entire Chiang Mai trip – visiting the Karen Tribe in Mae Hong Son and Elephant rides. But before I start on those, …
