Patisserie G at Millenia Walk: Stunning Cakes

I didn’t have any cake but they were stunning to look at. The flat white I had was great, my partner found his latte too ‘heaty’ (acidic?). He can’t take stronger coffee like I can. The Cuban sandwich was nothing … Continue reading

Peranakan Meal at Pow Sing: Satisfying but Expensive

Decided to do a food post for a change. A lunch we had this month as my partner loves Peranakan food and anything that goes with steamed rice. He is not so into bread the way I am. Actually I … Continue reading

I Couldn’t Get Enough of the Special Chilli at Pu Tien (Jewel)

We ended up here because the other two China restaurant chains we tried required reservations or a very long wait. Have been to Pu Tien years before and thought the food was of high quality. Our usual fare is hawker … Continue reading

Afternoon Tea Buffet at Goodwood Park Hotel

I haven’t been here in a decade so the whole place looked quite different. We truly enjoyed the experience though and the sofa seating was cosy. The buffet spread was also not too far away and the server who attended … Continue reading

If I Had A Year Left To Live

Whatever time I had I would want to spend with the ones I love. And beyond that I would regret not writing down my life story and what I’ve learnt. All the things I’ve kept hidden which is actually not … Continue reading

Perth Trip Day 3: Donut and Pie and Crossings Bakery

Out of all the pies I had on this trip this was the best one. Although I must say it can’t beat the chicken Camembert pie I had in Tasmania (a trip pre covid that I regret not blogging about … Continue reading

We were not even hungry but my sister wanted to order room service. It came piping hot and turned out to be spectacular. I’m still craving for those incredible chips. Crisp on the outside and fluffy on the inside with … Continue reading

Violet Oon: We Tried the Home Delivery to Celebrate a Birthday

It left us wanting more. The set was recommended for 4-6 people, but there were 7 of us. Everyone else said it was enough, but I guess I’m the greedy one because it was just so tasty. I à still … Continue reading

Salted Caramel Cinnamon Rolls at Dal Komm Cafe Centrepoint

I usually am not fond of salted caramel but these rolls were actually good and not overly sweet. A quiet and spacious place in town which is rare. Good comfy seats but the only downer is they won’t give you … Continue reading

Perth Trip Day 2: Amazing View at the Pullman Bunker Bay Resort Buffet Breakfast

You can’t see it here, but the skies were clear and sun was blinding. I’m not used to this as humidity in Singapore is high and there is always some cloud cover. And it was pretty crowded so I couldn’t … Continue reading

Our Favourite Dim Sum at Crystal Jade Suntec City Branch

This was truly satisfying after a disappointing experience at Canton Paradise. I feel that the Paradise group does a superior La Mian or handmade noodles and spicy vinegrette dumplings, but for Cantonese food, especially Dim Sum, Crystal Jade can’t be … Continue reading

Nam Sing Hokkien Mee at ION

Marmalade Pantry at ION

Breaking up my posting on the Perth Trip to post some Singapore food adventures. Been craving for these cupcakes but felt underwhelmed this time. I’m not sure why. Perhaps due to some troubling news regarding my cathaport. Don’t care for … Continue reading
