Hearts

What was your highlight of the week? Mine was seeing Jeanette Aw win Star Awards Favourite Female Character and Favourite Onscreen Couple with Qi Yu Wu for her role as Zhao Fei Er on The Dream Makers last weekend.

I am sure I'm not the only one who noticed how much chemistry both of them have as a long-time couple! And, I really liked how she portrayed the gradual change of her character, especially when the scenes are not acted in sequence!

Now, I just hope she will win Best Actress too! Even Zoe Tay is rooting for her to win!



Dress from LYRA MINN's latest collection.

While taking this photo, a fly kept hovering near my face and I was unable to smile properly at the camera (afraid that the fly will go into my mouth haha). Then, I saw a gigantic bee flying towards me and immediately ran away from the swing! Was wearing high heels and it was difficult to run on the uneven pathway too! Hahaha. In the end, for the beauty of the swing, I still went back there and forced a smile for some photos. Luckily the bee disappeared thereafter!

Pretty Houses

So yesterday, after blogging about Haw Par Villa, I went to google "Villa" and I saw these beautiful mansions. SO PRETTY. When will I ever get to stay in one? Everytime I pass by wealthy districts in Singapore, I love to admire at the beauty of some houses and daydream about living in them some day. Which is your favourite among these?

Swimming pools are gorgeous during the day but extremely scary at night. Haha.

Haw Par Villa

After brunch at Hoopla, we went to Haw Par Villa!

Bf has been constantly pestering me to go there with him, to the point that whenever I ask for suggestions on where we should go for dates, he would bring up Haw Par Villa. To the point that I think he is slightly pissed with me for refusing to go again and again. Hahaha. So one fine day, I finally decided to be nice and agreed to go!

It rained that day and I was almost afraid that our plans would be ruined. Luckily the rain disappeared just as we entered the carpark!

My memories of Haw Par Villa was when I was still a kid, but I cannot remember if I did went back as an adult in recent years. Anyway, it was only this time that I realize the founders were related to the famous Tiger Balm Oil and the name of the Villa came from their names Aw Boon Haw and Aw Boon Par. Haw and Par are respectively Tiger and Leopard in Chinese.

March/April Updates

So much to do so little time!

Here's a random update with lots of pictures because I feel like rambling today!

First, let me tell you a joke my colleague sent to me the day before.

Ah Soh is filling up an application form for a job.
She supplied the information for the columns on Name, Age, Address etc.
Then she comes to column on "Salary Expected"
She is not sure of the question.
After much thought, she writes "Yes".


Recently got myself a new love - this pink Kate Spade bag. Love it very much! I have been very into bags recently, got myself at least 10 new ones in this month alone :x Okay, now I know why I am so poor :'( Gotta scrimp for the rest of the month!



Anyway, I really need to find a way to organize my bags properly in my closet. Currently they are all on top of each other and I really can't bear to do that to my new bags. Anyone knows anywhere I can buy some kind of bag shelving to be placed inside closets?

Hoopla

Pardon the messy hair. This was the result of not going to the salon as frequently as I should. Haha.



I have been wearing this skirt from Femmex alot! It's not easy for me to find shorts/skirts that fits nicely on me so whenever I find one, I wear them repetitively and pair them with all sorts of tops! You will definitely see photos of this skirt on many of my future posts too. Haha.

The bag is an old one which I seldom use. Found it in my cupboard and rekindled my love for it. Haha. The material is so good and it's so spacious inside! I have been carrying small bags recently, it felt unusual too have so much empty space suddenly! Haha. I think there are water droplets on my bag in the photo above. It was raining that day! It seem to rain alot during the weekends these days.

Park with the girls

Hello people!

I've been terribly obsessed with shopping lately, I think someone needs to freeze my card. I kept buying bags, tops, skirts, and dresses non-stop!! It's not like I'm earning a lot, so this impulsive-spending habit is bad! Sadly, I also misjudged my size and bought a few pieces which cannot fit, so I'm wondering what to do with them now.

The increasing weight must be due to me eating out a lot! Fidelis recently invited us along for a food tasting at Park. I went to Park once before and remembered that the food was quite good, so I was looking forward to go again!

Park is located right outside Holland Village MRT station. I took the MRT that day and it was easier than expected to locate the restaurant, which was in the middle of a big grass patch, separated from rows of shops beside.

Nice photo of Carrie, Nadia and Fidelis in front of Park. Most of the photos in this entry are from Carrie's awesome DSLR! Love the crisp and clear images :)


A group photo of us!


We were served Premium Wild Berries Cider and Pear Cider. It is a light and refreshing drink for a hot afternoon.


I had my fave brunch drink - Cafe Latte. It was so good I had to stop myself from ordering a second cup.


Spam Chips and Truffle Fries to start our meal. The Spam Chips were tasty and crispy, a good treat for any day! Unfortunately, I was still recovering from my wisdom tooth surgery then, so I only managed to swallow down one piece. The Truffle Fries were a delight and we finished the whole bucket.


I had the Eggs Benedict during my previous visit and recalled it to be a quite a feast and indeed it was!


Duo Pork Belly, probably what I would order if I visit again. Two different styles of pork belly on a plate - tender braised and crispy roast. I highly recommend this!


Another good one - Grilled Portobello. Love the juiciness and delicious stuffing inside!


Truffle Mac and Cheese. Everyone on the table gave thumbs up for its creaminess.


We were stuffed by then but the dessert came anyway. The Tiramisu and Chocolate Pancakes is definitely a crowd-pleaser and a perfect ending to our meal!


Bf came to pick me up shortly after. For OOTD pics of this day, refer to my previous entry!
