Thinking of what to get for Valentine...

The Carvery at the relatively new Park Hotel Alexandra is my favorite place for buffet. Why? Because I LOVE MEATS. And I simply just can’t do without them. The Carvery, unlike your usual buffet places, is not a jack of all trades and master of none. They pride themselves with serving PREMIUM roasts and meats, […]

If you’ve missed my previous posts from Japan, they are here: First timer tips Day 1 Day 2 My first 2 days were in Osaka, and now, we are finally taking the Shinkansen to Tokyo, the capital of Japan! The morning was a mad rush because our train to Tokyo leaves at 8.30am, and we […]

I visited Kai Garden during its opening last December and was wow-ed away by their unique twists to the otherwise usual Cantonese restaurant offerings. This new restaurant located at Marina Square is headed by Owner and Executive Chef, Fung Chi Keung, and learning about his experience and history, allowed me to understand why his food tastes so […]

As some of you may know, I’m trying to save up furiously so that I can head for more trips before I start my life as an adult, a working adult. Boohoo. I have recently found an app that not only helps me to save money, it gives me a chance to win an $88 […]

Review: The Plain Jane Cafe @ Serango...

Even before they’ve opened their doors, I’ve seen the pictures of their beautiful interior and people on Instagram gushing over their swiss rolls, I wondered what’s the deal with this cafe? I learned that The Plain Jane was just a 2km+ walk away from my place, and of course, I was excited to pay them a visit! […]

You all can now order HERE! “Oh my, are these salted eggs laid by golden ducks?” I asked myself after popping these chips uncontrollably in my mouth, and then proceeding to finish an entire bag within a day. These are so good, I’ve got to share it with the world. Or maybe not. Because I heard […]

Review: Pacamara Boutique Coffee Roas...

Pacamara is one cafe which we’ve always wanted to visit ever since they’ve opened their doors, but were 1.5 years late to it. HAHA! Pacamara is ran by the same team behind the now defunct OZ Specialty Coffee, with their Thailand partners, Pacamara Coffee Roasters. Although we were late to the party, Pacamara was one place we knew we […]

Yes, if you’ve read my Japan day 1 travelogue, you’d have saw that I visited the permanent Gudetama cafe at HEP Five, Osaka! OF COURSE I DID. This is probably the FIRST and ONLY permanent Gudetama cafe in Japan as of yet. They do have random pop-ups in different areas of Japan for limited periods of time, […]

Like many others, I’ve heard so much about Hill Street Tai Hwa’s Minced Pork Noodles at Crawford Lane, the tiny coffee shop located just behind ICA building. This coffee shop, Tai Hwa Eating House, houses about 5 to 6 stalls; however, you’d see majority of the people at the coffee shop having food from either the […]
