Goodbye 2013

Time fly really fast this year and we are already at the last day of 2013.
2013 is a good year for me because most of the things went smoothly for me.
Of course, there are still down in certain time but no matter what, it is the experiences that will mold me to be a better person.

So, let get started!!!!

- Being able to meet most of my friends throughout the year is something that I am very grateful for. Especially my polymates because most of us are busy. The guys are either having NS or the girls are working/schooling. So whenever I am able to meet them, I am grateful. (:

- Had lots of adventures with Jeremiah this year. The most memorable would be our Hong Kong trip.
Never thought that my mum would let me go oversea with my boyfriend and I had the best time with him because of all the theme parks that he brought me to! Disneyland and Ocean park!

- Had a few high tea sessions with my eldest sis at some of the atas places that I don't think I would go and paid myself. Heehee. The joy of having an eldest sis who is working.

- Found myself a new job because my previous job did not want to hire anymore part timer back then. I guess they are trying to hire people again but I have a better paying job now. Still the same old retails job but I guess I pretty much enjoy working in the retail line since all my jobs are retails.

- Had my 21st birthday party which I never had thought of having a party. Glad that most people I invited came. Definitely a milestone for me that I am now an adult instead of a young adult which I am still not really used to it when people are telling me this.

- Had my 1st 5km run with Jannah (which I'm going to blog soon). Not really a marathon but we definitely enjoyed ourselves that day partying on the run!!! It was fun and crazy though.

And how can I forget my secondary school clique that is always there for me especially TAN PUAYSEE. 
Don't know what will happen to my life if she's not here. Of course the 2 guys too. Haha. We had our fun teasing her right! Although next year, Zhihan most likely will be going to Australia for his university. We can still meet up before he leave for don't know how many years.

Of course, there are bond to have some bad stuffs happen here and there but I realised that's no point writing it down because nobody want to keep the bad memories right?

For this new year, I hope I can still keep up with keep contacting with my friends especially those that I hardly contact with. Learn to be a better person, appreciate more and be grateful to good things that happen to me. 2014 would also be my last year in school if nothing bad happen. I want to graduate soon because the school fees is rocket high. I don't want to be a burden to my mummy anymore.

I also hope that everyone around me will have good health. Seriously, health is the most important thing and even when you have lots of money you can never be able to buy your health. And of course, have a stable and increasing income. How to survive in this high inflation rate city if we got no money right? Definitely going to say this again but I don't care!! I want to lose more weight ,be more tone up and have a healthier lifestyle (It shall forever be on my wishlist). 

Lastly, most people would say that they need to learn how to say "yes" to other people right? For me it will be the opposite. I need to say "no" to other people. Learn how to reject people for my convenience not their. I know that some people take advantages of me and I don't want to name the person but through their actions, I can tell. I'm not as dumb as what you think I am even when I give off a  "I don't care" attitude. I definitely have more life experiences than them.

May 2014 continues to be a good year for me and I wish everyone a happy new year, good luck and good health!!!!

P/S: Hope everyone is celebrating the new year with your loved one because this year countdown will be a leap over of 2013(13) to 2014(14). In Chinese 1314 mean forever and ever. Cheesy right? Haha

The Providore

So a few weeks ago,
Puaysee, Kaikeng and me decided that we should have a meetup before the year end and also to celebrate Zhihan's 21st which was super duper belated.
Well, all of us are pretty busy and it's quite hard to have meetup with each other since the guys are in NS also. But no matter what, time spent with them are always filled with laughter and fun!!!

We decided to go to The Providore because when I was at Mandarin Gallery with Puaysee, we saw this cafe and I was telling her that I wanted to try out this cafe. So, we decided to have our gathering cum birthday celebration over there.

The place was pretty small but not too bad or maybe we were just lucky that there wasn't much people there.

This 2 are constantly taking photos. 
Best partners to take selfie with!

Puaysee's drink and mine. 
The one on the left is mine and I ordered their Pineapple, blackberry and mint freshly squeezed juice. Taste pretty speical but not the best though. I didn't really like it.
While Puaysee ordered their Lychee, mango and orange fresh fruit smoothie. Not too bad! Taste just like mango smoothie! 
 photo 1454600_10151930506071704_1859187657_n.jpg 
For Zhihan's entrees , he ordered their Lasagna and this suppose to be their large portion. 
When his entrees came, he complaint that it was like small portion. 
  
 photo 1473046_10151930506461704_1681570712_n.jpg 
Kaikeng and Puaysee ordered the same entrees and once agian, they ordered the large entrees which doesn't really seem to be large. 
They ordered their Lobster Mac and Cheese. I tried a little from Puaysee and I didn't like it. Well, afterall I'm not a cheese lover so that might be why I didn't like it. 
 photo 1476138_10151930506206704_389815780_n.jpg 
I ordered their medium entrees and mine seem to be much bigger than theirs. Haha.
But that might be because it's a sandwich. Anyway, this is their grilled mackerel crostini and crispy bacon. 
Not too bad but the mackerel was a little dry, also the bread is really tough!! I couldn't cut it and I just simply use my folk to shred it. 
 
 photo 1476029_10151930503936704_1485564886_n.jpg 
They bought a small cake for Zhihan and Puaysee bought the relightable(?) candles which totally FAIL!
He managed to blow it off. Haha
Super epic moment for Puaysee as she was super confident that he had to keep blowing the candles.
The cake was super nice!!!!!!!
I think it was earl grey flavour. Might be wrong but there's bananas!!! I LOVE IT!

Puaysee was using my phone to take photos because she need to use her phone to make insta video.
Tsk, this girl... 24/7 with her phone one...

In conclusion,
The Providore wasn't a bad place to dine it. The ambient is good, not too crowd and the staffs are friendly!
However if you wanted to have a proper dinner, I won't recommend it as the portions are quite small and pricey.
I think their cakes are worth the try though. Even though we didn't have it that day, but I heard pretty good reviews for their desserts.
They have a semi open concept for their cafe which I always enjoyed this kind of concept for cafe.

J's quarter life crisis @ Kith Cafe

*Quarter life crisis was suggested by J. Not me!!

Last month, it was J's 25th birthday and I had a hard time deciding 2 places to have our lunch and dinner as well as his birthday gift.
In the end, we only went to Kith Cafe because we had a very late lunch =[
He still told me he wanted to have Japanese foods for dinner.

Kith Cafe was located at Park mall and there wasn't any crowd when we were there. So not too bad. The place is pretty small though. And I can't get to try their breakfast menu because we reached there at about 3.30 and the menu end at 3. SIGH.

 photo SAM_3395.jpg  photo SAM_3407.jpg  photo SAM_3403.jpg  photo SAM_3427.jpg  photo SAM_3400.jpg  photo SAM_3411.jpg 
They have a large selection of beverages ranging from the common tea, coffee, sodas and juice. They even have protein shake!!!
We had a hard time deciding what to order before J decided to try something new and also something that I will like it since I'm not really a coffee lover.
And we ordered their iced honey milk latte to share. 
As for their main, they have their standard menu and also I guess their daily special ? 
Not too sure on that part but their main wasn't a large selection as compare to their beverages menu. 
But, still not too bad. The portions are good enough to make us filling and the amount of ingredients in it definitely make me feel better to pay a higher price for it. 
 photo SAM_3412.jpg 
I ordered their Marinara
Not too bad since I always love tomatoes based pasta. 
But this wasn't what I wanted initially. 
The one I wanted to order was not available which was such a bumper because they should have told us beforehand. 
 photo SAM_3413.jpg 
J ordered Spaghetti with beef tenderloin, mushroom, garlic, chilli and cherry tomatoes. 
According to him, it was quite spicy but bearable. 
The beef tenderloin is really nice!! Soft and juicy. 
 photo SAM_3415.jpg 
If you guys remember last year post, he asked me not to sing him birthday song and no candle.
Ahem, this year I decided to go against him!!!
Sang him the birthday song and cake with candle!!
I can't remember what's the cake but it is really tasty with some nuts in it. 
 photo SAM_3421.jpg 
And that his face when he saw the present. 
This year, I managed to hide from him what I gotten for him and he totally didn't expect that.
THAT IS AWESOME!
 photo SAM_3424.jpg 
Birthday boy with his cake and present. 
Overall, Kith cafe is a pleasant place to have brunch and chill out. 
We stayed at there for a couple of hours just talking. There are some magazines available, so I guess you're able to read and stay even longer.
We choose to have the indoor seats; there are outdoor seats available too. 
Quite a nice place to have a small gathering with friends. 
But the price are pretty pricy, the bill came up to be $60+ including GST and service charge.

HBD J (: 
Hope you like the present and that day!
Heehee, he even questioned me why I meet up with my friend so randomly since I did not tell him beforehand. But I wanted to ask for opinions before I purchased the present and at the same time I don't want him to know what I am buying for him.  I have a hard time trying to hide from him okay!! Since he always spoil my surprise. Glad this year I managed to surprise him with everything. 
This conclude the post on his birthday. 
Till then,
Bye~~ :]

Empties Products - November

Hello everyone!
Finally there's a new empties post!
As I have mention previously, I hardly try new products or even get to finish using some of my products before the expiry date. So I took quite a while to "collect" all these full size emptied products.

Let's get started to last month empties!

 photo SAM_3458.jpg

Clean and Clear Fruit Essentials Facial Cleanser in purifying apple : Really love this facial wash. Give me a very clean feeling after washing my face. Plus there are some micro beads(?) and the scent is really refreshing! I think that's what a facial cleanser need to do right?

L'Oreal Youth Code Eye Essence : DO NOT GET IT. Seriously. I had high hope for this product because of all the raves and hypes from many bloggers. In the end, really disappointed to the max. I don't see any different throughout my use of this product. The worse thing? I still have like 1/5 of product left but I just can't seem to reach to the bottom. Even when I attempt to pour it to another container. I'm just back to using my 1st eye cream. Which isn't the best but not the worse.

Etude House Aloe Moistfull Soothing Lotion : I got this because the previous moisturizer was making my skin peel, so I just went to the nearest shop I can find and gotten this. Quite happy with this moisturizer expect it does take quite awhile to soak into my skin. But it's okay!

The Body Shop Japanese Cherry Blossom Shower Gel : Another bottle because my eldest sister got this for my 2nd sis and me last christmas. I only uses this when I need to travel or bath somewhere else. Love the smell but once again,  not fond the "oily" feeling.

L'Oreal Revitalift Laser X3 : Still loving this sample but I don't I will purchase this line for the time being. Although I really like the products.

Pearlie White Advance Whitening / Blanc Perfect Toothpaste : I still don't find any different using Pearlie White toothpaste. But my mum gotten it for me and  I need to brush my teeth anyway.

Batiste Dry Shampoo in Floral and Fruity Blush: I like the feeling of using dry shampoo. Really leave my hair oil free and at the same time give volume to flat hair. The only downside of this shampoo is, it does leave a white residue because of the powder. Maybe I should buy the one for brunette instead. But still a great product!

That's all for this month empties!!!
Usually, most of my skin care products will be finishing during December.
No idea why but somehow it's a trend. Haha.

So I decided to try out some new products from Etude house and Innisfree!
YES FINALLY INNISFREE IN SINGAPORE. Totally went crazy back in Korea.

Some of the new products that I bought. 
Feel free to leave down any reviews or thought if you ever use any of the product! 
That's all for now.
Till then,

Michael Kors Slim Runway Rose Gold Watch ; MK3211

Hello everyone!

Usually, I won't blog about my new purchase straight away or sometime I won't even blog about it. However, the deal that I had gotten from purchasing this watch is too good not to be share!! I know I'm such a nice person right! xD But seriously, the deal is too good to give it a missed or not to be share!!

I'm not sure how many people did I ever told, I always wanted something from Michael Kors. Be it their handbag, watches, wallets or eyewear, I JUST want to own it! I wanted their bag and watch badly because I think that they are of a much affordable price range as compare to other designer.

FINALLY I GOTTEN THEIR ROSE GOLD WATCH!

I got mine during Robinson Expo Sale 2013 a few days ago (which is held from 5th Dec to 15th Dec). And read this following line carefully...
ALL THEIR WATCHES ARE 50% OFF THE PRICE!!

I'm serious! No joke!!!
I purchased mine with a 50% off the price tag amount!
This wasn't the exact model that I wanted initially but J told me not to give this chance up because even Takashimaya card day only offer 10% on top of the 10% that they are currently having promotion with watch.

So I really purchase the watch at a really good price even though it wasn't the one I wanted it.
It still have the element that I like which is rose gold! And J say thinner chain? (somebody help with the term please) suit me better. I always trust his taste! Therefore I purchased this watch as an advance Christmas present for myself and to reward myself for the previous sem result :]

 photo SAM_3438.jpg  photo SAM_3439.jpg  photo SAM_3441.jpg  photo SAM_3440.jpg 
The watch isn't this short, just that my wrist are pretty tiny so it seem to be short.
In total, I have 5 links removed from the watch.
I have never encounter removing 5 links from a watch.
 photo SAM_3443.jpg

Of course this wasn't the only buy that I purchase in the sale.
There are tons of beauty products, foods, toys, kitchen, home and many many more!!
Many designers' watch like DKNY, Marc by Marc Jacob, Fossil and more are up for grab! Most if not ALL are 50% off!!

So head down to Expo Hall 5 now!!
I really can't believe what a good deal it was!!
And of course it's 100% authentic; but the choices are limited and consist of older design.

Don't say I didn't share alright!!!
Till then,
Bye!!
