Hello from Singapore

Hello hello! And it's almost the end of February 2018! Time flies— I've spent almost 2 months in Singapore and left this space again.
It was a stressful 3 weeks because my granny was very ill. I was at the hospital everyday. Somehow hospital drains you so much despite just sitting by the side. The chemical smells and the bacteria side-effects I guess. Actually the hospital couldn't really figure out what was wrong with her. They decided that due to her age, it's really hard to figure out which of her instruments are failing because technically all of them are failing. Luckily, a change of events, everything is ok now!

When nicer things happen, I finally began to head out to meet friends.

Besides, it's December— it's the season to party.
I originally packed a section of party outfits in my luggage. But well, I didn't really wear them in the end. I need more #dramaqueens in my life to dress up together

Places to chill

Over Easy

1 Fullerton Road #01-06 One Fullerton,
Singapore 049213

A funky restaurant right oppposite Marina Bay Sands Hotel is a perfect place to chill out with friends and get a good view of the light show at night. There's a light display every 30minutes.
But the place is often crowded, so call up and book in advance! The food's great, but as the location suggest, it's a little on the steep side. 

Atlas Bar

600 North Bridge Rd, Parkview Square, Singapore 188778

When I stepped into the this super posh and gatsby vibe bar lounge, I was stunned by the grandiose decor. I gotta admit— I came here because I saw photos from Instagram. But holy; the photos absolutely do not do justice! Just visit their website:
You'll get what I'm saying. Before you head there, remember to check their booking on their website!

 

Pigging out!

No doubt, the sole existence of being in Singapore is to eat. Unfortunately by my third week at the hospital, I was completely sick of hawker/street food. They no longer taste the same. You can hardly taste the wok hei. The food were uselessly oily, I was sick of them. But not all food were bad. 

PS Cafe

Raffles City S.C, 252 North Bridge Road, #03-37, S 179103

It's my first time there and they are not known to be cheap, they serve local food which were mouth-watering (´﹃`) Do not forget about their Sticky date pudding. (♥ω♥) It's worth all the calories!

My love for waffles

Somehow, I don't understand why the french cannot make a simple waffle like this. Obviously, I had to maximise my waffle opportunities. I've made a new friend, Didi. She's super sweet, I'd like to think that our love of kpop connected us but I have not moved on from my TVXQ days so er- I can no longer proclaim myself as a kpop fan (งツ)ว 

The Tiramisu Hero

121 Tyrwhitt Road, Singapore 207548

We were supposed to meet at Wimbly Lu but I was late, and it was Xmas Eve, many places were closing. We found ourselves at Tiramisu Hero instead. While they are known for their tiramisu, we opted for waffles, vanilla soft serve and cheese fries. They totally killed their waffles perfectly. Plus cheese fries, another item on the menu that's impossible to find in Paris!

 

 

Red star restaurant

54 Chin Swee Road, #07-23, Singapore 160054

An old classic for fans of dim sum. My parents always love to have their dim sums at this restaurant, hidden between a huge car park. Say dim sum, say egg tarts. I definitely have to eat them whenever I'm at a dim sum restaurant. Maybe because we went there too late? We felt that their standards dropped a little. 
Nonetheless, I'm highly sure that I'd return to this place again.

Super Star K

75 Tanjong Pagar Rd, Singapore 088496

Let's not forget about Korean food. As much as you can find them in Paris, I haven't found one that looks as classic as this one.  Eating around metal containers seems pretty fun, plus their air pipe seems to take off extra 50% of the bbq smell. I've discovered the joy of Grapefruit Soju and have become quite addicted since then. It feels so good to be able to drink with girlfriends like this on a weekday

Voila! Now then, I hope that you're not too hungry! 

This basically concludes my decent food journey during my 2 months in Singapore. No doubt, there wasn't any point of sharing hospital food. While my blog was practically full of dust, I did try to post regularly on instagram. But I've developed some sort of crazy #OCDvibes of posting images of the same color frequency, it made it harder to post more often. { You know, it's all about the feed } 

I guess not everything was bad during those times. It was the festive period afterall. I had my first "group" mini get-away to Johor Bahru with my bestest friends (classmates from we were 13 yo!) Some boring parties turned out quite pleasant in the end too. 

Now then, back to Paris— It's time to move to another phase of life: SERIOUS job hunting while temporarily transitioning into full-time independent designer!
