Eats: Eggs & Berries Westgate Mall

So, if you are staying in Singapore you might know where Westgate Mall is. I happen to stumble upon this semi-alfresco eatery that sells, as the name has suggested, eggs and all things western...

Overall, I was quite satisfied with the food and service. So, let the pictures do the talking, shall we?

Romain Lettuce Salad with Poached Egg in Balsamic Dressing (and no, this is not the exact name of the salad but I just put in whatever ingredient I see in the picture). 

This was quite good actually, with the hint of sourness coming through from the dressing, the poached egg drenching the salad with its runny yolk was a delight. Good combi.

Rate: 4.2/5

Beef & Caprese Burger with Balsamic Reduction

I was pleasantly surprise by how juicy the beef patty was which I ordered medium cooked. The potato wedges also manage to retain its crunchy exterior while keeping its interior fluffy and moist. This not-too-expensive platter definitely is able to fill you up and satiate your cravings for meat. All worth the money I'd say.

Rate: 4.5/5

Pancake Platter with Sausage and Rosti

There are some hits and misses for this platter. I love the Rosti which tasted great, the sausage was your standard generic type, I don't fancy the pancake (a little too thick for my liking) and the scramble eggs was quite fluffy but when eaten cold, it kinda bogs you down a little. So, yeah, nothing more to say about this dish...

Rate: 3.8/5

Will I go back to the restaurant for more? YES, I would as there still tons on the menu that I've yet to try out so stay tune ^_^

Pictures: Cuteness Overload

Sorry for the absence as stress has finally won the battle and I was feeling under the weather (like so under that I wish I can have a rest day or two).

Ok, since I'm a bit drowsy from medicine taking, I will now talk so much and let you see some vomit-inducing cuteness that is happening in my room (don't sue me if you have to be hospitalized, kthxbye). 

P/s: Pose and arrangement done by my sis and I.

Best Friends Forever!!!

A Moment For Yourself: 10 Things To Do When You're Alone

Have you ever been to a stage where you crave for alone time or just silence for 10 minutes so that you can just wind down and relax??

Well, this has been me!! For the entire past week. My work has been so crazy that I couldn't even remember what I ate for yesterday's dinner. Seriously, what did I eat o_O ???

So, what do you do when you're alone??

Mine's below ^_^

1. Dig my nose - Left, right, in and out... Yup, thoroughly and slowly wtf!!

2. Sleep - No I can't sleep when someone's watching me

3. Snacking - Ice cream, crisps and chocolate are my favourites!!

4. Watch Youtube or blog - My favourite pass time of all time

5. Count my money - To make sure I don't get broke by the middle of the month

6. Sing - Well, I also do do it when there's people around, like I'd cared!?

7. Try out my makeups - Since I have a huge passion for all things beauty (especially makeup), I usually like to try different looks at home (especially those crazy looks with tons of eyeliners)

8. Clean my room - Yup, I'm quite the clean and tidy freak and I will be pissed off if there's one strand of hair lying casually on the floor (*joking*)

9. Daydream or reflect on my day or just simply re-enacting scenes where I should have said or did something that I wouldn't regret - My mind loves wondering alone if you know what I mean...

10. Contact someone - Well, things can get bored when you're alone for too long, so I just pick up the phone and start texting or calling away!!!

Things You'll Need In Your Dream House

I was in total awe when I stumbled upon this article as I have always envision my dream house to incorporate the features as below:

Double story walk in closet (every girls dream I suppose)

Slide alongside with the stairs (hey, I will always find excuse to go up the stairs if you mind)

Vacuum baseboards so I don need no dustpan to collect my garbage (always leaves trails of dust and sands behind in my opinion)

Treehouse (Yay!!! Childhood moment relieved)

Ceiling hammock (uh, yes please!!)

Hidden passage bookshelves

More hidden bookshelves (wanna make my house looks like Hogwarts)

Flowy pond/stream underneath the house with transparent floor to admire it

Hidden carpark (this is cool man!!! o_O)

Outdoor showers in tropical garden (which is not suitable for hot climate countries as its a breeding ground for mosquito but I can still wish)

Waterfall shower and bath (look at her, she's totally enjoying it)

Last but not least, an personal cinema where I can totally make my friends squeal and be envious. Gone are the days of watching movie on laptops.

Eats: Tim Ho Wan Westgate (1 Star Michellin Restaurant)

OKAY!!!! I won't give much comment on this restaurant as I queued literally from 11am to 12.30pm just to get a taste of this infamous 1 Star Michellin restaurant and it kinda pisses me off. 

Well, ain't too sure whether its the annoyance that causes me to not enjoyed the food as much or the taste of the food is really just mediocre, I'd say, Don't Waste Your Time Queuing for this restaurant as you can get much better tasting Dim Sum around Singapore (i.e. Crystal Jade, Canton Paradise..)

I think they adopted Singaporeans tastebuds as Laksa actually appears on the menu.
