Macintosh: Review

After reading my blog post on Macintosh, the geeky friend (the same one who highly recommended the Macintosh laptop to me in the first place) lent me his spare Macintosh laptop to try.

Yes, I know I am slow and that Macintosh laptops have been around for donkey years, but at the expense of sounding like a complete idiot, I am going to give my two cents' worth on the Macintosh laptop.

Trackpad: The best feature of the Macintosh laptop has to be its trackpad. Unlike the boring touchpad in Windows laptops, Macintosh's trackpad is an art of it's own. Different number of fingers allow you to do different things: rotate, flip, glide ...  It's like iPhone on a larger scale (I keep forgetting that the Macintosh laptop and iPhone are from the same company, hence it's only normal that the cool features available on the iPhone should be found in the Macintosh laptops). The only problem is that it tend to be a little too sensitive, but I am sure I will be able to get used to it. 

Simplicity : The best thing about the Macintosh laptop is its simplicity. Everything is laid out clearly in the Menu Bar, you don't have to search high and low for that one particular program. 

Beauty: There is beauty in every little detail of the Macintosh laptop. The beautiful screen, the backlit keyboard which will be ever so useful at night, the pre-installed programs, the aluminium casing ... It's one beautiful package. I have been using Windows all my life, so the display has never bothered me, but compare a Macintosh screen to a Windows screen (I am doing that now, side by side) and the Macintosh is so much brighter and clearer. 

Class: The Macintosh laptop oozes class, which is why it is so commonly featured in movies and shows. Having a Macintosh laptop puts you in a different league from the regular Windows laptop users.

Having used Windows laptop for so many years, it is time to upgrade to the stylish and sophisticated Macintosh.

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.
