Nursing

I have finally managed to survive the three nights of my first night shift. Night shift is very different from the morning and afternoon shifts. The morning and afternoon shifts are more of following doctor's orders and making sure that everything that has been ordered has been completed on time, while night shift is more of the preparation phase to ensure that the morning and afternoon shift people on the following day can function properly.

Although night shift is more relaxed in a way, since there is no information coming at you left, right and centre, it is also busy because you have to top up the drugs, the IMR, the doctor's continuation sheet, the PCR and so on and so forth.

I was talking with my preceptor, Wenli, last night (or rather this morning) and she was telling me that she envy her friends in China. They all seem to be enjoying life very much. They often meet up to eat and chat. It just seems that they "have a life" and we don't. Everyone is busy with their own life, that we don't get to meet up very often, maybe once in a blue moon.

I don't know if it is because of my job, or is it because Singapore is too small, there doesn't seem to be a lot of things I can do when I am free. It's either eating, shopping, catching a movie or sleeping. Is life always going to be this boring? I want some excitement, some changes. I am feeling as if I am not really living, I feel like a robot who have been programmed to go through the routines of everyday life just like that.

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.
