10 Instagrammable Cafes In Singapore To Visit



As you all know, I usually spend my weekends in a cafe having yummy brunch food and posting photos of eggs/waffles/toasts on Instagram (follow me @theiceangel). Besides the taste, I also care alot about ambiance and how pretty the food/decor look on photos.

So how do I choose where to visit? I usually scroll through my instagram and check out nice food photos by other food bloggers and take my pick from here. Here's my list of Instagram-worthy cafes in Singapore that I have visited!

My criteria?
- Photogenic food on photogenic cutleries on photogenic table tops
- Bright lights/ Sunlight

These are not all, just some that I remember! Do let me know if you know of others!

1. Wheelers Yard
28 Lorong Ampas, 328781
http://www.estherxie.com/2014/08/wheelers-yard.html

If you are active on Instagram, I am sure you find this blue backdrop familar. Several variants of this obligatory OOTD photo outside Wheeler's Yard have popped up on Instagram ever since this bicycle-theme cafe opened for business.


2. One Man Coffee
215R Upper Thomson Road, 574349
http://www.estherxie.com/2014/07/one-man-coffee.html

This is exactly how a cafe should be. Good coffee, good food, good decor. Food on wooden planks instead of plates immediately made it photogenic.



3. Letoile
160 Owen Rd, 218953
http://www.estherxie.com/2013/04/letoile.html




4. Fart Tartz
1 Expo Drive, #02-04 Singapore 486150
http://www.estherxie.com/2014/09/fart-tartz.html

Flower dessert! So cute and very very very instagrammable. But hor, when I sent this photo to my colleague, he didn't get it and thought it was a photo of a real pot of plant. Hahaha.




5. Kith Cafe
9 Penang Rd #01-01E Park Mall
http://www.estherxie.com/2013/11/kith-cafe.html

Something about those grilled lines on the toast.....



6. Dean & Deluca
181 Orchard Rd, 04 – 23/24, Orchard Central, 238896
http://www.estherxie.com/2013/09/somewhere-with-nice-lighting.html

Two words: Bright Lights.





7. The Tastemaker Store
Blk 22 Havelock Road #01-705 Singapore 160022
http://www.estherxie.com/2014/09/the-tastemaker-store.html

The minimalist design is comforting and pleasant. One of the cafes that I am really impressed with, after visiting so many cafes with messily put together decor. Simple but tasty food, in a simple but pretty setting.



8. W39 Bistro and Bakery
39 Jalan Mas Puteh, 128637
http://www.estherxie.com/2013/09/w39-bistro-bakery.html

Love the colors!


9. Blisshouse
http://www.estherxie.com/2013/06/blisshouse.html

This is exactly how I want my future home to look! White furniture and florals. Very korean-cafe-ish.




10. Le Halo
Blk 4 Jalan Bukit Ho Swee #01-162, 162004
http://www.estherxie.com/2015/04/le-halo.html

Colorful colors.

Monochrome Nails

Love my nails of the month so much that I took so many photos and couldn't decide on one!








Have always wanted to do try something simple in black and white. As usual, I had it done at Millys with my regular manicurist Corine.

Others at Millys are also very experienced, and most of the time I just have to show them a photo I found online and they will recreate the design on my nails, at times suggesting some tweaks to make it look even nicer! :)

Do refer to my NAILS tab above at the navigation bar for more design ideas~!

Win a box of apparels!

Haven't been doing much recently, except for work and TV. In addition to my usual favourite taiwanese variety show "Kang Xi Lai Le", I am very hooked on local productions on like:

- 118 (I dont want this series to ever end!!! So glad that they extended the number of episodes!)
- Second Chance 流氓律师 (Love the storyline, and I think Desmond did quite well here! Such a waste because it's not on Channel 8 Primetime and there are only 13 episodes... )
- Love 限量爱情 (6 episodes of different love stories, touching on different type of issues)
- Sabo (A show on Toggle pranking celebrities)
- Mars VS Venus (New talkshow discussing gender related topics)
- Hui Jia Zhou Zhou3 回家走走3 (I especially liked Kate Pang's episode because she's so funny. I really like her character!)
- The Games We Played (Lighthearted variety show and I like the hosts)

Here are some of my favourite dramas that I want to rewatch!
- Marry Me 我要嫁出去
- Man at Forty 跑吧!男人
- Together  当我们同在一起
- *variety show* 爆料黑玫瑰 2 Black Rose 2
- *variety show* 学校没教的事

After I finish all these, I also want to watch the new drama series 'Tiger Mum' by Huang Bi Ren, and new variety show 'Face Off' because it's hosted by Kate Pang!

Got no time for other things!

Oh speaking of local dramas, I am really sad that Shaun Chen did not get nominated as best actor for his role in 'Blessings 祖先保佑'. Oh well, at least he got in for 'Tumultuous Times'. I didn't really like him last time but after recent likeable roles like the one in 'The Dream Makers', 'Blessings', and 'Tumultuous Times', I really like him now!

Just a quick update with some OOTDs that I haven't posted here plus a giveaway at the end!

I am on snapchat!

Actually, a long time back I downloaded snapchat, played with it for a day or two, and deleted the app off my phone.

Then awhile back I gave it another chance and downloaded it, played with it for a week, and deleted the app again.

Few days ago, I met up with my girls and they were uploading a snap that had me inside and I just had to download the app again to check if my face was ok. Hahaha.

So.... I guess it's more convenient for me to keep the app on my phone la. Here's one I posted during the weekend.



Random much.

Another one from yesterday's dinner with Nadia and Fidelis at Cafe Melba!
