this was my second time to Bistro soori, the first time i was there, i had their brunch set, and i love the food there ( the price was reasonable then at $38 per set). So, i decided to bring the girls there for the celebration but the dinner menu was so expensive that i kinda feel guilty for choosing that place. lol.( because it was our treat(lynette and me) for shirley. One main cost around $30-40, so u do the calculations. Howeverrrrr, the food did not disappoint us!!

Yes. i have been on the hunt of good vegan food lately. and as soon as i found out that there is this organic vegan burger fast food , i wanted to try it out so badly. u know the typical vegetarian choices in singapore is either like an indian veg restaurant, chinese style veg eateries and many salad bars. oh yes, and lately, i found out that subway serves this vegetarian patty sandwich which i find it quite good.

Image

and so i did a little research about veganburg and i got shocked!!! they have 4 existing outlets and the fifth one is opening up in orchard at the 2nd quarter of the year. DESPITE having 4 outlets now, i have never heard of it from anyone before till this colleague of mine highlighted to me their existence.

hehe, so i finally persuaded the boy to turn vegan for one night, and we ordered home delivery. YES they provides delivery!! however, they have this very weird delivery system. Firstly, u need to check which zone u are living in and the minimum order differs. the minimum order could range from $20-$150 depending on your location. personally, i felt i am discriminated (haha, i am exaggerating) , like i live in the “out of zone” area, so my minimum order is $100!! how the hell can i order $100 worth of burgers and fries…???

Image

this is the smoky bbq burger, that the boy and me find it quite tasty. ( he ordered the char-grilled satay, he don’t quite like it.)

Image

and they have this tofu sausages that tasted like real sausages. damn amazing la.

Image

when i saw that they have this organic cola and lemonade on their online menu, i know i just have to try it. i have never heard of organic cola and lemonade la. wahhaha.but the drinks turned out a little too bland for me. don’t quite enjoy it.

however, i don’t mind having their burgers and fries again. if you are looking for a fun, western vegan alternative, don’t mind giving it a try. 🙂

Yes. it was yet another brunch date with the ladies. 🙂 this time round we made a trip all the way to MBS just to try out the food at Au Chocolat. AS usual, the place is nicely done up, makes me feel like i am in “Alice’s Wonderland”.

Image

it is located at a corner where u will first sight their shop that sells au chocolate ‘s souvenirs, cupcakes and chocolates, then when u walk further in that is where the restaurant is.

Image

Image

the restaurant is not a very big place but it was not very crowded when we were there on a weekday. which is good, cause we can take our time to eat and gossip as long as we want.Image

Baby lynette ordered the fish and chip.and  i loveeeee the fries.

Image

then baby shirley and me shared the french toast and the egg benny. The french toast was pretty good, tasted a little crunchy and sweet. we both thought it seems more like a dessert than a main for us.

Image

there is nothing fanciful about the egg benny. i had better ones.so it was okay.

Image

why so happy ar??!! haha

i was @ Nassim hill for brunch last weekend. it is a bakery bistro in the day located at tanglin post office. They served awesome breakfast i must say. i enjoyed the food so much. 🙂

Image

apparently (according to their website), they serves a different dinner menu at night with guest DJs and they have a bar that serves an array of alcoholic beverages.

Image

Image

i really enjoyed the food. the bread is soft and warm, the orange juice is VERY fresh.

and the egg benedict is so good … 🙂

Image

Image

Image

i was playing with shawn ‘s camera (fujifilm XE1).awesome camera! love how the pictures turned out.

Image

the rest of the pictures are taken using his camera while we had our dessert @ blackbird. some of the pics are left unedited, while some i only changed the contrast level. because the colors of the pictures are already damn nice. we had fun shooting each other. 🙂

I was invited to zenn’s new cafe opening two weeks back.The cafe is conveniently located at Bussorah street ( near to Arab Street), it is within walking distance from Bugis MRT. i must admit that the place is nicely done up with eclectic furniture, and it is filled with interesting eye candy deco that makes the cafe feels so whimsical and vintage. The clever incorporation of the pipelines as part of their cafe ‘s interior design, just add on to the quirkiness feel of the whole place!

Image

They have a really wide range of drinks selection to choose from, ranging from specialty coffee and teas, to craft beers and ciders. Personally, i love their fizzes( their own created drinks),refreshing and cooling, it is nice for a hot weather. 🙂

Image

isn’t this cute?

Image

Image

zenn & jeannie.

Image

They do serve cakes and sandwiches if u are looking for something to eat and they also provide people the option to order food from the restaurants ( Italian, Japanese & middle eastern) nearby and allow them to consume within the cafe.

i think this is a pretty cool idea. have u ever faced the situation where u wanted to have japanese food and your friends would like to have western cuisine? now, at this cafe, u can eat TOGETHER with your friends and yet have the option to order different varieties of food to your own liking! And on top of it, the place has got nice ambiance and the deco is cool!

US. the batchies. 🙂 nice catching up ! we should do more.

Do pay them a visit if you like trying out new cafes in town!

(photograph taken by film slr @ somewhere in singapore. sorry i can’t say where this place is. i miss trips like this,just out in the nature and shoot. )

lately i have been digging out old albums and trying to recollect the old times. i realize life was so great then, LOL.

all the emotions i get from looking at these photos from the past are so overwhelming. it all constitute to the fact that i was so happy and carefree then, but i was never contented and be grateful for having such a happy childhood. ( haha.. i keep telling myself how life sucks with all the exam and not enough money to spend. and keep telling myself to grow up fast so i can earn more money and buy nice things for myself.) then when i grow up and now been working for almost 6 years with the airline, i want to go back to being young. LOL. it is like a joke isn’t it?

i have learned. to be happy with my life now.be grateful for having a job, a happy family, a healthy body and i have the money to upgrade myself by taking my degree. i want to stay this way. cause i won’t know what will happen to me 10 years down the road.perhaps i will get too sick to travel, or gets too poor to even sustain the kind of lifestyle i am having now. now i just stop thinking too much, and live my life the way my heart tells me to, so i have got no regrets.

then, i realize a lot of people around me have been complaining way too much about how life sucks, about me don’t understand how heavy their work load is. how about trying to look at life from another angle, perhaps 10 years down the road, u might be jobless,and blame yourself that why when u had such a good job then yet still complaining so much about it. or maybe 10 years later, you won’t be as fit as now to travel to all other places while u can do all this with ur life now. life is great! it all depends on how u look at it isn’t it?

thinking from this point of view, does it makes u more happier now? that at least you are alive and kicking well now? lol.haha….

why people like to complicate life? life is just so simple.Be happy and be grateful of what u have now.( i think i am so naggy in this post. keep preaching about being happy.) of course, there are days where things doesn’t turn out great, but it will definitely not be the worst day of your life, so why not think of something happy and turn your mood around. afterall, it is your life. you gets to decide whether u want to have a life full of joy or be sucky about it for the rest of your life.

i dont deny i am still learning to be positive about life too. sometimes negative thoughts do invade my mind once awhile, but when it does, i will try my best to push it away and think of all the happy thing that happens to me. 🙂

(photograph taken by film slr @ somewhere in singapore.)

i think film cameras are still the best. does DSLR gives u such rich colors in the photos? i don’t seems to be able to get shots like this with my DSLR. is it because i am not good enough with my DSLR that i am not able to bring out the full potential of a DSLR? lol. i am so going to bring my film camera out to shoot again. i hope it is still working.haha

Image

Image

Image

i hope everyone will have a happy day today. 🙂 hehe

this last two shot are not taken with my SLR camera. is just a normal digital camera. but i love it. Looking at this photos, make me want to take a month off and travel all over the world and see beautiful things.
