This has got to be one of the nicest HDB flats (housing built by the government and subsidised if you’re eligible) especially the ones with a waterfront view. It’s also connected to the malls. walked from the mall to the … Continue reading
Saw this inside the lift at Toa Payoh Rise when we visited Creamier for ice cream. My partner told me that this is much cheaper than going to a car wash which can cost at least S$10-12. But he said … Continue reading
We literally stumbled upon this cafe at the Upper Serangoon area. My partner spotted it from the coffeeshop where we were having dinner. It’s another hip little ice cream waffles and coffee cafe located within HDB blocks and we like … Continue reading

We hardly ever have cloudless skies.
It wasn’t so bad. I am guessing that the guards are doing a good job of controlling and helping to direct the traffic. At some point the top most level carpark looked almost empty, but as we were leaving, it … Continue reading
