The only thing that can get me zooming out of my office at 6pm on the dot since I started working is the opening of the ONLY GUDETAMA CAFE IN SINGAPORE! I was definitely thrilled because as you guys can tell, I’m a HUGE fan of this lazy egg.. Just look at my room, really. […]

The year 1992 must have been an amazing, game changing year for mankind because that’s the year when ShareTea and I were born! HAHA!

I’m sure, or rather, I hope most of you have remembered my previous post on Meet and Melt’s shibuya toasts at SCAPE. I am a HUGE fan of bread, butter and of course, both put together – SHIBUYA TOASTS. With their rapid R&D and the hurry to jump to each and every bandwagon of the current […]

When I heard that the same people behind Ninja Bowl has a new concept along Seah Street, my first thought was… DAMN, I NEED TO GO. And so, I did. Nothing gets between Explodingbelly and her food. Of course, I did not regret that decision at all. While the concept may seem a little similar to […]

My friends always tell me calories from desserts don’t count because they don’t go to the belly, they go to the heart. Always this was just a fluke until I paid the one-week old Kumoya Singapore a visit last weekend. The sight of their desserts just made my heart flutter like the adorable 5 year […]

I don’t know about you but I absolutely love the feeling of walking through the throngs of queue formed outside a cafe or restaurant, and simply saying, oh I got a reservation. That makes me feel like a VIP all the time, especially with people shooting me looks of envy or annoyance. Well.. I choose to […]

On one fateful weekend, I was being whisked away to the event space outside AMK hub for an event. Ooh look at that – $1 noodles! Well.. Of course, as Explodingbelly, I joined in the crowd and queued, just like any other gracious Singaporean. Chef’s so focused with frying those ingredients. Yum yum! Being a huge fan […]

Ah, Henri Charpentier. You remind me of the amazing and carefree days over in Japan, where I just ate and ate and ate everyday without having a single worry at the back of my mind.. Well. Except for the worry of getting fatter than I already am. Anyway check out my adventures in Japan here! […]

I’ve first heard of Meet and Melt when they started off as a humble neighborhood cafe in Tampines. Their lava toasts, inspired by Bangkok’s Code cafe (I suppose) made its breakthrough on social media and that was also why they’ve caught my attention. However, I’ve never made my way down because Tampines, despite having lived in […]
