Eats: Kin Kin Chilli Pan Mee 建记辣椒板面 @ Macpherson Singapore

There are mixed reviews on the eatery as some adored this version of the famous Kuala Lumpur Chilli Pan Mee while others dislike it. 

If you haven't got a clue what Chilli Pan Mee is, its basically dry flat noodles served with some minced meat and poached egg, add as much or as little chilli to your likings and just mix it all up. 

The KL version was so good that it got itself a cult going and one of them is my sister. However, I was not impressed by the Singapore branch's version. It just tasted...Bland o_O

As you can see, its also on the pricier side too. S$5 for a bowl with not much noodles and pitiful amount of accompaniments, definitely way overpriced. 

However, it managed to capture loads of people's attention and the waiting time to be seated is somewhere around 45 min to 2 hours (as I was told my the sisters). For me, I was lucky enough to joint by my colleagues and we got there with empty seats available. As the shop is situated beside the road, you will need to queue in the hot humid weather which for me, is the biggest put off ever!!!

This actually looks quite good in the picture but the taste was somehow off compared to the original version. I wish they could add more taste to the noodle itself (saltiness perhaps) and not just letting the chilli do its job. And also, the fish-ball soup was quite mediocre too, nothing to shout about. 

If you asked me whether its worth a try!? I'd say just wait for the Pan Mee fever to die down a little before going there as you don't really want to get agitated queuing up for ages just to taste a its-just-alright bowl of noodle.

Rate: 3.8/5

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!!!
