2 weeks before, Jan and I arranged a day out to hang out. The agenda involves lunch, drinks and mummy topics. It’s our first 1-1 meeting. I suggested Stray at Orchard Central because of the menu looks healthy & impressive artsy food plating. Pricey though
I ordered Acai Berries Bowl. So pretty with healthy antioxidant ingredients.
There were not many choices for lunch so Jan decided on Yu Sheng Bowl. Truly an Instagram-worthy food with Yu Sheng ingredients.
Can’t say much about taste though but I would come back for desserts 🙂

Sometime ago, a friend of mine posted a galaxy-inspired cake. So beautiful, I added the cafe into my To-Go List.
It was a Monday. My friends had no idea where I am leading them. Upon arrival, they were wowed by the cakes.
Before cakes, we had the drinks & main course for lunch. Iced Tea – Twillight (Purple drink) is a popular drink.
However, the lavender was bit too raw & overwhelming for me.
The cakes were pretty and mini in real. We didn't finish them despite there were 4 of us.
Best order in terms of taste, Nutellalatte.
Being working mum, I just want to dash back home to my kids after work. Me-time or spa time is pretty much history or have come become rare to me. Used to do regular groceries shopping with Bret until I tried Red Mart. I appreciated the convenience of clicking and have my groceries delivered to home. Goodbye to days where I have to carry the heavy duty items like rice, milk powder or detergents & etc
Last afternoon, my Red Mart order was delivered. One of the item, Viennetta Ice Cream.
The Color of the box goes so well with Le Creuset Cool Mint stoneware. I will always remember the commercial I watched when I was a kid. Through the commercial, I learnt the concept of luxury. Successful commercial.
Beautiful curls… Bret loves peppermint and our first time trying. Minty and Super cool.
Sometimes, Best Friend B and I would do impromptu lunch together. I had strong cravings for my Favourite Nasi Padang at Far East Plaza.
My kinda-Happy Meal. I love and cleared everything on my plate. The nasi(rice) & balachan chilli is exceptionally nice 👍🏻 I can hardly find another place comparable to this stall.
Great place for Chilli-lovers.
After this, I will need to adopt a much clean-er diet which means Minimise Fried Food, Meat & Carbo like White Rice, Yellow Noodle. After giving birth, my metabolism rate slows down and I have really stubborn water retention. The days of eating anything is over for me.
A good friend has introduced an affordable vegetarian meal replacement and Chia seed.
Something has got to change, am doing it.
Over at Bugis, we entered Joo Bar. A Korean chill out place introduced by our Friend, Ivan. A new concept for us to explore.. we were looking at the menu wondering which should we try. And we ordered the “Korean Wine Sampler Set”
Bret likes the original best. I’m good with all…
A sip of Soju in this spontaneous night with dear hubby.
In Korean drama, we often see a combination of Beer + Fried Wings.. so we added the Korean fried wings to our table. I like it, flavourful and crispy.
Wearing his gift around my neck tonight. Shall blog about my latest necklace in next entry 🙂
Our date night picture as parents of 6 years old and 2 months old.
Last order was rice wine with higher alcohol content.. to get that kick before we called it a night. Good to mix with beer. Towards midnight, Korean pub songs with fantastic bass and beat were played. If only we heard the songs earlier…
Nevertheless, we enjoyed ourselves at Joo Bar. A place we would go back because of the food, atmosphere and drinks.

Sunday a day to relax at home.
The night before I asked my helper to prepare mango pudding dessert.
Sweet moment on a rainy afternoon…”
Love dessert in pastel Le cresuet.
After few loaves of plain bread, it’s time to play around with recipes. I followed the Panasonic Soft Bread Recipe, Menu 3.
Instead of water, I replaced with my in-law’s coffee.
I added Dried Cranberries too.
4 hrs 30mins, my coffee bread was ready!
The crust was softer than usual and looking gorgeous.
My mil bought Haagen Dazs ice cream to go along with our homemade bread. Coffee taste was not evident but mil said its tastier on its own. I think much credit to the dried cranberry.
Yummy yummy. We couldn’t ask for more.
