Prom Dress

My Prom is on 6 March, which is like ... only a few weeks away, and I have not even gotten my dress ready!

I went shopping with Jing Yang at Causeway Point and I found this really gorgeous dress at Metro. It is a gown by Arthur Yen. The gown is gorgeous and I look gorgeous in it (Jing Yang agrees with me too). I have totally fallen in love with it.

I would have bought it at once, except that it is too expensive. It is bloody $159. I think my parents will probably kill me it I buy it.

But I really love it...

I don't usually like wearing dresses or skirts, but I have fallen head over heels over this gown.

Should I or should I not buy it?

[Added on 29 February 2008] That dress IS a bit too tight for me and it makes me look as if I'm going for my wedding and not for Prom. Plus, come to think of it, it's ridiculous to spend that amount of money on something that I probably won't wear again (thanks, Priyangi, you are right). So it's out.

[Added on 1 March 2008] Yes! I have finally bought my Prom dress. It's really cheap.

Buy it if you are prepared to wear the dress again for other formal occasions. If not, $159 is a lot to pay for something you'll only wear once.

On an unrelated note, happy belated birthday. :) You'll get your present in December/November when I come back.

Using my awesome internet powers!

No, seriously, I tracked it from your blogspot profile. I hope you weren't trying to keep it a secret...

hey. did you purposely spell Unknown as unkown? because at first i thought it was venturingintotheunknown.bs.com but then i keep on going to some white guy's blog. but then when i click on the link you emailed me, it got me here. then i was like.. eh? so i see the address slowly and saw that the unknown is spelled as unkown.

To Nadiah:

No, it was an honest mistake. Sorry, my spelling sucks.

Sophie Kinsella's books prove to be rathering entertaining.

Mikoto Singapore

Stella has been raving about Mikoto Singapore ever since she ate there. She brought her boyfriend and a few other friends there and they were all full of praises. Is it really that good? I started to wonder. I jumped at the chance when Stella invited me to have dinner with her boyfriend and her at Mikoto Singapore.


I started off with Red Plum Liquor. You can't really taste the alcohol probably because the alcohol content is lower, but the taste of red plum is refreshing.

This is Nitsuke. It looked so good on the menu, but it was a little disappointing. The only noteworthy thing is the sauce.

This is Chicken Nanban. The chicken pieces are perfectly deep-fried. Tartar sauce is made with Japanese pickled eggplants called shibazuke which gives it the pick colour. This is definitely the highlight of the meal!

This is Vegetable Stick with Anchovy Sauce. The raw vegetables are very fresh and they go very well with the slightly-salty anchovy sauce.

This is Ham Cheese Katsu and it is only …

I Am Cafe

Mariem wanted to meet for dinner and she suggested this I Am Cafe that I have not heard of before.



Located at Haji Lane, this cafe  swaps air-conditioning for casualness and down-to-earth prices. It is not certified halal, but it is owned by three Muslim brothers.


The waitress recommended Cheezy Bombs and it was really delicious. Deep-fried chicken meatball with melted cheese, they explode in your mouth and will burn your mouth if you are not careful. 

I ordered Charcoal-Grilled Juicy Beef Burger. The beef patty if very juicy but a little under-seasoned, the addition of the pineapple gives the burger a totally different experience. However, it would be great if the beef patty can be made into two thinner ones, so that the burger can be eaten in halves, most girls don't have such a big mouth.

Mariem had Fish 'N' Chips. I had a few bites and it was alright, but I can still taste the taste of the fish, which should not be the case in a good Fish 'N' Chips.
For drinks,…

Awfully Chocolate

I have a sweet tooth, but I am not a big fan of chocolates because I find them too sweet.

However, if I ever have craving for chocolate cake, THE place I will go to is Awfully Chocolate.

I can't remember who introduced me to Awfully Chocolate, but I have been hooked ever since.




The Salted Butterscotch Brownie is really good. You can taste the butterscotch in every bite, but it is a little too sweet for me.
The Super Stacked Chocolate Cake is the one for me. It is super chocolatey, yet it is not overly sweet. It is the most popular item for a reason.
The White Choclate Creme Brulee Tart is too sweet, but otherwise delicious. 
Don't take my word for it - go and try them for yourself! I promise that you will not regret it.
