My heart skips, skips a beat

Seriously?

I thought these places only exist in my dreams. What I would kill to have ‘em all.

Imagine, having dinner here every night. Under the stars, in the moonlight.

On a practical note, imagine if it starts pouring heavily. You get a mini pool. Doesn’t sound all that bad as well

This place is amazing, and you wouldn’t believe that it is in a shophouse in Singapore. Looks more like a luxury villa than a home though.

One day, some day.

Hittin’ 25

12 Sep

I’ve officially hit the mid-twenties!

Can’t decide if the exclamation is a shoutout of joy or a gasp at the old age. Ever since the age of 10, I’ve had a love hate relationship with birthdays. As much as it is yet another excuse for celebration, reality hits that I’ve turned another year older, and soon I will be seeing grey hair and wrinkles. Superficial, I know.

This feeling hit me many years back. I realised once I turned 10, I had hit the two digit age and I was mulling over the fact that there was no turning back to being young. As much as it sounds immature now, I still can’t help but feel abit melancholic each time my birthday looms near.

Well, at least my celebration perked things up quite a bit. M booked a one night’s stay at Klapson’s The Boutique Hotel for my birthday. It was meant to be a quiet affair for just the two of us. Pretty relaxing for a change, I must say.

Had brunch at The Plains Cafe at Craig Road before checking in

Chocolate platter that M ordered. They had weird flavours like wasabi which sucked urgh.Photobucket

Got down to doing some housekeeping on our own. The jacuzzi was filled with some leaves since it was in the open air area.

Must say we were quite disappointed with the jacuzzi. We spent a whole lot of time cleaning up the jacuzzin before we went in for a dip. After draining out the water, there was a million specks of black dirt around the sides of the jacuzzi. We were pretty grossed out that we were actally soaking in that dirt. Can’t believe we spend so much time just washing up that tub over and over again!Photobucket

 I know that jacuzzis aren’t suppose to have soap, but oh well..it made it more fun! Felt cleaner too haha

A whole lot of bubbly!

Our lunch! The room service food was exceptionally nice, maybe cos it was salty. Truffle fries and chicken wings. :D

The only grouse was that for every room service we made, we were charged $10 extra. Never really heard of that in other hotels though. Maybe it’s just me..Photobucket

We didn’t even once step out of the room for the whole stay there. Watched movie after movie that was showing on the hopelessly grainy television. Ordered in more food, soaked in the jacuzzi, and repeat.

My bday cake, which wasn’t too bad. I think I finished half of it on my own and left the rest in the hotel..Photobucket

Apart from a few other grouses we had, this staycation came at a good time to get away from our stress. Not sure if I would head back there for another stay though. Not really keen on bending over to do more jacuzzi cleaning, since age is catching up anyway. Heh

Till the next!

Barossa: An Australian-inspired Restaurant

5 Sep

If you’re looking for a laid-back restaurant with good food, Barossa’s one of the places I would suggest. Located at Esplanade Mall, this restaurant is mostly al fresco seating. If you’re lucky enough, you get to enjoy live music from the Esplanade at night. Unfortunately for us, the hard metal/punk rock ( I can’t decide what it is, just extremely loud) music that night killed the mood. Not my kind of music, that’s all.

I’m glad the food somewhat made up for the distress caused by the music, haha. The company made a difference too of course!

Our starters

Calamaris; Garlic Fries; Prawn Paste Chicken

The Chilli Crab Pizza was to die for so we ordered two servings!Photobucket

Birthday cake from the lovelies (: Thanks for the celebration!

Hopefully the next time we’re there, the live music would be much better.

 

KL Over the Weekend

29 Jul

 

It’s been a while since I had the mood to update what’s going on. I hope things will pick up soon anyway.

Nonetheless, some pics from the trip that was planned quite some time ago..We were invited to Azhar’s place at Sri Tiara (free lodging ftw!) so we just headed there for the weekend, while the rest stayed back to catch the Arsenal match.

As much as a quick getaway was a good breather, I hardly had a chance to catch a breath. We had to rush straight after work to the airport on a Friday night to catch our flight, and by the time we were in KL in the comforts of his place, it was almost 1am. And then rushing back on Sunday night, and reaching SG near midnight, before preparing for work the next day. It was quite tiring I must say.

The whole trip was basically just lazing, watching White Collar, and catching up on movies like 21 Jump street and more..

Saturday, we headed to the mall near his place for some casual Jap food. It was not too bad, but for the price we paid, I shan’t complain! Exchange rate was pretty damn good too. SGD 1=MYR 2.5!

One thing I like about Msia is that it has some character as compared to SG. Character as in some old heritage stuff that makes the bustling city still interesting. This Police mail box caught my attention!

We did some grocery shopping for breakfast and lunch the next day before heading back home to rest before dinner..

Our dinner at Pavillion – Mexican cuisinePhotobucket

Can’t wait for a proper holiday, but for now, let me get my life back in order

Flourless Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chip Cookies

5 Jul

I was feeling edgy and stressed a couple of days back, and I just needed to expel some pent up negativity. Since I had the whole night to myself, I thought, why not bake some delish sinful food. I must admit I’m not the best baker around. I usually have hits and misses (more of the latter unfortunately), BUT Rome was not built in a day, isn’t it? I usually console myself with that.

Decided to dig up this fuss-free recipe that I have been eyeing for quite some time at Buns in My Oven. Only 5 ingredients, beat that! Glad to say the cookies turned out fabulousssssss. If not I would have been one pissed off bitch. Anyway, peanut butter and chocolate can never go wrong. I don’t really fancy peanut butter alone but pairing it with chocolate is almost close to heaven.

Flourless Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients

  • 2 cups peanut butter
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 cup chocolate chunks

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees celcius and line baking tray with cookie sheet.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together peanut butter, brown sugar, eggs and baking soda until light and creamy. Stir in the chocolate chunks.
  3. Drop tablespoonfuls of dough onto the cookie sheet.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes for soft and chewy cookies or 12 minutes for crunchy cookies. (Do not panic if they are soft when removed from the oven, let them sit for a couple of minutes to form)
  5. Cool on wire rack and gobble them down.

This recipe yields quite a huge amount of cookies, and so I didn’t finish the batter. I would definitely half them the next time I make it. This recipe is so easy that everyone should try it!
