Summer Clothes

As much as I love jeans, I realise that the best clothes to be worn in summer are still shorts. Jeans may give the casual-smart look that I like so much, but it is too hot to be worn in Singapore's climate. It's even worse now that I am working as a nurse. I perspire so much after half-a-day of running up and down the ward, that it really feels like hell when I have to change back into my jeans.

When I get my pay, I am going to stock up on

  • Shorts: I only have one pair of denim shorts in my entire wardrobe.


  • Jeans: Jeans are still my favourite. I only have one pair left. I want to buy a few more pairs.


  • Tops: Be it tank-top, racerback top, spaghetti-strap top, even long-sleeve top.


  • Shoes: I need more shoes. Now, I only have one pair of track shoes, one pair of black crocs(the cheap version), a pair of Cinderella-style plastic heels (which is really painful to wear), a pair of light-brown boots, a pair of black pumps (which always become lopesided , two pairs of nursing shoes and a pair of black flats(which I bought when Kimberley and I met at Causeway Point today).


  • Jackets: I've always felt that a good jacket can make the most boring outfit look lip-smacking good.


  • Okay, basically I just need more of everything. Although I hate shopping (I don't detest it so much nowadays, I'm even starting to enjoy it at times.), but I am a girl and I like looking good.

    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.
