Tobi Dress

Processed with VSCO with a5 presetIMG_2679[1]IMG_2683[1]IMG_2677[1]

Chose something romantic for date night with my Boo.

I think many women can attest to this, when you have too many clothes, you may end up forgetting you even got certain outfits hiding in your closet. This Tobi outfit is one of he many outfits I forgotten was there. I wore it once in Cebu two years ago, and after that it laid in the back of my closet, untouched.

The dress is more fitting at the top and flowy at the hem. I’m obsessed with the backless detail. Who’s not obsess with backless dresses/tops?

Shah and I explored all over Dempsey to find a good place for our monthsary date, but everywhere was packed due to Mother’s Day. We ended up heading to town for some Japanese food.

We had a really good talk during dinner, evaluating our relationship. I think it’s good for couples to evaluate their relationships regularly, what makes the other party happy or unhappy, etc. It works for Shah and I, allowing us to understand each other better and how we can improve our relationship.

Pince and Pints

I’ve had my fair share of lobster rolls at many cafes/restaurants, but the one and only place that has got me hooked on their lobster roll, is Pince and Pints.

I went there a few years back to celebrate my birthday, and all the hype about the restaurant is legit! The lobster was so soft and juicy, like literally melting in your mouth. And the bread was toasted to perfection.

Yes yes, Pince and Pints is quite pricey, but if you want the good lobsters, go there. Don’t waste your time at cafes paying $20-$30 and all you get is just bread with lobster. Yes, I’m serious. No sauce, no nothing. Of course, there are cafes that serve lobster rolls with mayo, but I hate mayo, and I find such dishes too common.

Pince and Pints is a place you must definitely try once. Either go with a date or with some good friends.

The place gives a very cozy ambience with dim lights. Perfect for intimate dinners. Or you can just go there for drinks at the bar, to rewind and relax after a hectic day at work.

I chose my all-time favourite, The Truffle Roll ($68++). Goodness, it still tastes exactly the same. Full of goodness and very sinful! A bit of truffle caviar and shaved truffle on the dish, add with a side of truffle butter sauce, grilled corn and straight-cut fries….PERFECTO!

Oh and the Lobster Mac & Cheese ($29++)? Sizzling hot! I wouldn’t mind going for seconds. But hey, I needed space for dessert!

Travelled all the way to Holland Village for some Sunday Folks ice cream. Even though it was a weekday, the place was fully packed with customers, with more waiting for their tables.

I decided to just get a cone ice cream for takeaway, and enjoyed my dessert within the confines of my car. Peace and quiet. And that is how I like to end off a busy and tiring day. With food.

D’Good Cafe

D’Good café has opened another branch, and it’s in town! Thank God for that, as its first branch is located all the way at Holland Village.

In terms of aesthetics, both cafes have very different layouts. The first branch at Holland Village, which I’ve been to a few times, has a garden theme, whereas the one located at Taka is designed in a way to mimic the London Tube.

We ordered a couple of dishes to share, and for the fact that I was really hungry. Okay, who am I kidding. I ordered three dishes for myself. And nope, I didn’t share at all lol.IMG_2247[1]IMG_2246[1]

Ordered the Baked Escargots in shell, Foie Gras and Quinoa, The Scotch Egg and the D’Lobster Roll.

I love the escargot especially mixed with garlic and herbs. The foie gras wasn’t too bad, although it tasted a little dry. As for the lobster roll, it isn’t exactly the best I’ve tasted. I mean if you legit want awesome lobster roll, it would be Pince and Pints. I’m not a fan of mayo (hate it to the core), but apparently, mixing lobster and mayo seems to be the thing. But it’s a no no for me. Uh uh, I like mine with truffles and some garlic. Basically, anything but mayo.

I wouldn’t mind heading back again to D’Good café as they have a colourful range of food on their menu. And I would suggest trying out both branches as they both have beautiful interiors for photo opportunities.

Staycation at Amara Sanctuary Sentosa

Last month, I had a little Staycation at Amara Sanctuary for some R&R.

It has been really stressful the last two months and since it was the last weekend before school started, it wouldn’t hurt to indulge a little. 

We stayed in the couple’s suite with the amazing Dream Pool right outside the door. I could literally jump into the pool from the front porch.

The resort is so secluded, it feels like we’re no longer in Singapore. And the room….. OH GOSH! Don’t get me started! Now I know why it’s called ‘Amara Sanctuary’. It’s literally a sanctuary. A little haven for couples. Ahh, pure bliss!

If only we had more time at this beautiful resort…….

I’m so glad we took this time off for ourselves. For a while, it seemed like we were in our own world, with no worries or stress. Having bubble baths and drinking wine, lying on our sunbed to jumping into the pool with my unicorn float. That was heaven!

SPELL Byron Bay

I’m super obsessed with SPELL & The Gypsy Collective. The fact that I was in Byron Bay, was the perfect opportunity for me to visit the shop itself.

The interior just shouts ‘GYPSY’ and ‘Bohemian’, with little trinket displays. I stepped into the shop and just gave a little sigh and muttered to myself, ‘This is heaven.’ Legit.

The staff were really helpful and friendly too. Anytime I had questions about their products, they were happy to help.

I was so in love with everything there, but lemme tell you, it was the intimates that I was fawning over.

I got myself the Blue Skies Bralette and Bloomers, both in black. I wished I had purchased other sets, but I think there’s a big enough hole in my wallet. Don’t wanna make it bigger now, do we?

It’s definitely a good investment. Not only is the set very feminine and unique, but it is absolutely comfortable to wear.

Every lady should invest in at least one good set of intimates 😉

I was so excited to bring my Charlie Mae swimsuit to Sydney with me, but unfortunately, it arrived much later.
The boutique’s designer Beth, has utilised her creativity and passion to create a collection of high quality swimwear defined by flattering cuts and minimalist aesthetics.
Her pieces are designed to accentuate beauty and health, strongly influenced by the chic Australian and European summer lifestyles. A Charlie Mae girl is a lover of the outdoors, a sophisticated rebel who radiates beauty inside and out.

The brand believes in acting mindfully of the environment and each individual piece goes to customers with love, fairness and quality. The collection is carefully tailored with strong attention to detail and designed to complement a range of body types.

There is nothing like exploring the world and its beaches with one of Charlie Mae’s special and individual pieces. Look good and feel good knowing you’ve helped to save a life!

Overeasy

Processed with VSCO with a5 presetLately, all I can think about is burgers, burgers and even more burgers!!

Why, you may ask? Thanks to a certain show called ‘Supernatural’

One of the main characters, Dean Winchester is a burger fanatic. There is almost no episode without eating a burger. And damn he makes eating a burger look good!

So since this series is one of the MANY American series I’m obsessed with right now, watching Dean eat burgers has made me crave for burgers constantly. Weird right?

What better place to go get a burger than Overeasy?

Overeasy has become a popular place for people to get top notch American comfort food, like the good ol’ MAc & Cheese or a bangin’ burger. This eatery is know to have the ‘best burgers in town’ as quoted by The Straits Times.

Think mouth-watering diner classics, nostalgic crowd favourites, decadent milkshakes and American-inspired cocktails. Whether it’s a Spiked Milkshake morning or Mac & Cheeks kind of night, these seriously sexy buns will take you from AM to PM.

You’ll believe it when you try it. Trust me.

Everything about Overeasy shouts American Diner from the list of food on the menu to the interior. So if you can’t experience the one in States, head on down to town and experience it first hand. They have two branches, one in Fullerton and one in Orchard.

I ordered the spicy buffalo wings ($10) at the most spicy level: crazy mofo!! And damnnnn was it spicy! I could feel the heat coming out from my ears like a cartoon character.

I had the “To Die For” burger ($19), which is literally…….to die for, if you can guess it. I had my patty cooked medium rare as I always like my patty to be a bit softer. And OH MY GAWDDDD, it was so sinful! It was like heaven on earth!

I didn’t get to try the Bacon Avocado Toast ($12), but it didn’t look too bad.

At OverEasy, they take their comfort food seriously. Served alongside a healthy dose of nostalgia, Overeasy lovesmessing with the classics and kicking things up a notch. Familiar but never boring.

The food will just make your mouth water!

So if you’re into burgers and basically the whole American Diner experience, just head on down to Overeasy.
