Childhood Memory - Hainan Chicken Rice Ball

This has to be my favourite-est chicken rice stall to date! I remember coming here since young, anticipating the cute balls of chicken rice to arrive as a pair in front of me. The Tau Pok Soup which I will drizzle over the rice balls to see them fall apart, and the tender and moist chicken breast meat(Yes, you've read, Tender & moist chicken breast meat). They only serve White Chicken and Lor Sio Bak(braised pork belly), but it's enough to keep me going for years!

Hainan Chicken Rice Ball
Shin Boon Hwa Food Centre
43 Jalan Besar (Dickson Road)
8.30am to 9.30pm Daily
Tel; 91604964 (Closed on Wednesday)

I've been frequently visiting this place since I was a little girl. My family can't seem to find another one that is just as good, maybe we are just addicted to this place. I highly recommend you to try this place out and let me know what you think of this place! Or share with my your favourite Chicken Rice Stall, I would love to try!

Bellwethers - Brunching in a Bar

Nestled in a corner of Singapore’s oldest red light district, Bellwethers Bistro Bar adds a modern touch to the culturally rich enclave of Little India. Bellwethers Bistro Bar emphasizes simplicity in its design and focuses on allowing customers to bask in the edgy and unpretentious cultural heritage of the locale. 

Located just on the fringe of the city, Desker Road is a quirky and unconventional neighborhood rich in history and full of color. The appeal lies in its raw, edgy feel and the idiosyncratic characters who form the backdrop of this unique environment. 

This avant-garde neighborhood transports us out of the immaculate, pristine, constructed city that Singapore has long been both highly acclaimed and maligned for. Away from the tall skyscrapers and glitzy shopping malls, Desker Road is lined with beautifully restored shop houses that exude a quaint Peranakan charm. Bellwethers’ goal is to create a quirky and offbeat watering hole away from the humdrum of Singapore’s concrete jungle and bring cool to this charming hidden gem. 
 

Bellwethers Bistro Bar
120 Desker Road
Singapore 209639
Tel; 6297 9066

Nearest MRT: Farrer Park MRT(NE8) / Lavender MRT(EW11)
Fish & Chip ($15)

Pancakes ($9) with Bacon ($3)

Eggs Benedict ($15)

Beef Pie ($14)

Foie gras and pickled mushrooms ($14)

Big Breakfast($18)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hits & Miss Here. While I love The Big Breakfast and the Egg Benedict, The Foie Gras was tough and the pancakes lack the aroma to make me want to go for it again. Atmosphere is pretty good, pretty quiet area for a real relaxing brunch.

Fotoplay has it all settled for me! YAY to Convenience! 

20, 30, 40, even 50 years down the road, I would still keep this book with me and show it to my grandchildren how crazy my friends were, the delicious food I've eaten, my memorable 21st birthday, the beautiful places I've been to, It's all about me.

I'm feeling 22~


No, I am acutally really TWENTY-TWO now, Not just feeling it.. Hahahaha!

My 21st Birthday felt like it just past yesterday(a little exaggerating), but I happened to come across the book I made everyone wrote at my birthday party and I could feel the love coming from everyone, I teared.
It wasn't the most fantastic party, neither was it what I wished it to be, but the company of those who turned up and those who wished me are already enough. Thank you all! If you are wondering why did I not blog about my 21st Party at all, It's because there wasn't much photos taken by me because I was busy with lots of entertaining and laughing and eating that I totally forgot to take photos. #oops But If you are real interested, I have a album of the all the polaroid / photos I took that day with everyone who attended at my makeshift Photo wall!  
p.s: I look back at my post last year on my birthday, abit paiseh ley...


Well, Fast forward a year ahead, 5 September 2014, I'm turning 22. No big fancy party this year.
Did the Usual of pampering myself a little, went to do my nails with Susan again!

I call it "Michhysaurous Sweets" because the whole theme is just candy and sweet stuffs! I simply adore it, especially the hand drawn cupcake and ice cream, I had to resist not biting on my finger nails!

Then I got a a few advance present for myself, which I think I deserve. Hahaha! #shopaholic


And what's a birthday celebration without feasting? Le mum never fails to whip up the traditional Mee sua with Egg and Drumstick on my lunar birthday! Super love!

And then the sweet Rosental called for a birthday treat, thank you love! I enjoy your company alot!
