Happy Birthday

Today is my birthday, as some of you may still remember. So before I go on, I would like to wish Happy Birthday to myself.

I had a great time with my boyfriend at East Coast Park today. We didn't do anything special, we just rented a charlet in East Coast Park and stayed there the whole time. I still didn't get to see sunrise or sunset. I really think the sun has something against me.

On this special day, I want to thank some very special people.

Firstly, I want to thank my parents for bring me into this world and raising me. I have to confess I am not the easiest daughter to raise. I always create problems for my parents and I used to lie all the time when I was younger. As a child, Mom would often complain that I am as stubborn as a bull and I think I have become more stubborn as I grew older. Thank you, Mummy and Daddy, for tolerating all my nonsense and still caring so much about me after all that I have done and said.

Next, I want to thank my best friend, Jing Yang, and my close friends (Jeanette, Kimberley, Kar Yin, Xiu Yi, Eudora, Mariem, Priyangi and Grace). You gave me the strength to live on when I felt worthless. You were there when I was in pain. You saw me through all the way. I won't be where I am right now without all of you.

Then, I would like to thank Brandon. It is you who taught me how to love someone wholeheartedly. You brought me into the beautiful world of magic and flourishes. You were the one who made my heart whole. Please believe me that it was never my intention to hurt you the way I did. I have always known that you have loved me from the very beginning and that you always will. My Mum used to comment that you are my "drug" and I am "addicted" to you. I think I understand what she means now.

Lastly, I would like to thank my current boyfriend. If Brandon is my "drug", then you are my "antidote". We got together on exactly the day of my one year break-up anniversary with Brandon. It's almost as if our meeting is fated, that you will be the one who will help me move on.

Thank you, everyone!

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.
