Happiness

Many of us, including me, are constantly searching for "happiness". We think that we need expensive cars and branded goods to be "happy", but when we actually achieve those things do we realise that they don't make us as "happy" as we they would. What exactly is "happiness" and how do we go about being "happy"? Deluded, I went online and visited websites dedicated to "happiness", but I am not really inspired by the things they said. Then I came across this poster online.

I think we have all been chasing "happiness", we are so focused on it that we fail to realise how "happy" we really are. "Happiness" is not something you can see and recognise right away. It is the joy and peace you feel when you do certain things, the insignificant little things.

I feel happy when I am spending quality time with my boyfriend. I feel happy when I am enjoying nice food. I feel happy when I am writing in my diary. I feel happy when I laugh. I feel happy when I am able to buy something I like. I feel happy when someone compliments me. I feel happy when I bake cakes and cookies and people enjoy what I bake. I feel happy when I wake up after a good night's sleep. I feel happy when I am reading novels. I feel happy when I spend time with my friends.

However, I do know that I can be happier. I need to find a good place that is within my budget, somewhere I won't want to move out in a long time. I believe that it's only when I am settled down can I put my full attention on the other things that I need to take care of.

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.
