Updates

Oops, haven't been updating my blog lately, so much so that Eudora had to email me to find out how I am doing.

Work: I am now working at the Singapore National Eye Centre (SNEC) as a staff nurse in the Day Ward. My main responsibilites nare to do pre-operative assessment for patients going for operation and teach the patients how to take care of their eyes after the operation.

Relationship: I am still with the same boyfriend (even I am surprised that I managed to stay so long in one relationship). Of course, we have the occasional squabbles, most of them revolving around the fact that we are not meeting enough (that is mostly my fault), thanks to the fact that he is living in Redhill and I am living in Woodlands, not forgetting the fact that this place is an all-girls' dormitory, so technically he is not supposed to come over although I used to sneak him in in the past. Anyway, I will be moving house once my contract with the current landlord ends in September, so I will be moving somewhere nearer to him and my workplace in Outram. I intend to rent a room where he will be allowed to move around freely (possibly a room for couples).

Health: I very healthy, no worries about that.

One more thing, I have moved all the entries from my LiveJournal blog to this blog, but I couldn't bring the comments over. It's too tiring to keep two blogs at the same time. I am still trying to decide what to do with the LiveJournal blog. I may use it for my next blog, or not.

If you ask me if there is anything lacking in my life right now, I would say that it is friends, very good friends who know me inside-out, whom I can talk to freely. I used to have so many close friends, but we don't really keep in contact anymore and that saddens me. Eudora is overseas (emailing is an option but I never liked emailing), Jing Yang is so busy with school that she hardly has time for herself. The same goes for Grace and >Mariem. Priyangi is overseas too. Jeanette and the rest are all working like crazy in hospitals.

Good thing I still have my books.

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.
