There's someone here who will love you...

...but who dissed you?


"A diss that breaks your heart; who are they to say that without even knowing you?"

As usual, Sunny Hill's songs are impossibly catchy while also having meaningful lyrics.

"If the lady isn't A-class, they will diss."

Don't let the haters get you down :)

Perth Lights

So...I'm kinda late in writing this post...

Okay make that extremely late! :P

Nevertheless, it was really enjoyable to look through the photos I took then edit them. It just brings all the lovely memories back :) And the best part is, it got me really hyped up for the upcoming annual trip to Perth!! Ahhh~ two more months! :D :D


Touched down on a beautiful summer morning. My family and I spent about two hours at the airport upon arriving, trying to get a good deal on our car rental for the trip. There's not much to do at Perth domestic airport (compared to Changi airport la, I don't think it's possible to run out of things to do there) so we (my sister and I) just got some food and jalan around the shops. Oh and of course we camwhored :)

Our breakfast was from Red Roosters. Oh god how I missed chips with chicken salt!! A little part of me is crying on the inside now because of how much I miss them...Ugh!! Two more months to go! Stay strong!!

Ahem.

Moving on...


My $10 flats from Mimosa. I had to wear plasters on the back of both of my ankles EVERY single time I wore them :( And after wearing them for about three of four months the side of one of the shoes almost completely detached itself from the sole. Oh well, that's what you get for ten bucks~~


Jelly Belly~! I know you can get them in Singapore but still...who doesn't love jellybeans in fun flavours?! :D

Our first dinner for this trip...

Prepare yourself for a feast for the eyes!


Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh~~

Thin crust pizza omg nomzy nom nomzzzz~~

Mine was pepperoni (love) with olives (SUPER LOVE) and mushrooms (MEGA HYPERTRONIMO LOVE).


My parents'. Super supreme I think?

I like how there's like a random olive here and a stray slice of pineapple there lol~


The pizza box design. Nice right?!

Afterwards it was already pretty late and all of us were reeeally tired so it was time to catch some zzz's :)

Sigh, I miss my comfy bed in Aus :\ And the carpeted floors...and the cool air...barely any humidity...OTL

The next day was mostly spent tidying up our house and doing some stuff that had to be done. Had a really fun time looking through my stuff which I hadn't seen in like, more than two years I think? So nice to reminisce :)

Dinner that night was highly-anticipated! We went to a restaurant that was a family favourite and has been since FOREVER. We go there a few times a month, the owners of the restaurant know us that sort of thing~

And I'm risking shyness/embarrassment by saying this in case some of you can identify the restaurant...but the waiters there are almost always cute ;)

Good food AND eyecandy? Why, thank you very much! xD


Chickun~~


Beef with snowpeas and mushrooms ♥♥♥


My FAVE ♥

We order this every single time we go there without fail! It's basically fried egg tofu with random ingredients like cabbage, mushrooms, enoki mushrooms, all which I LOVE!!

And the broth is really delicious, great to go with your rice :)

Gosh it's like three in the morning now and I am getting soooo hungry looking at the pics and thinking about how yummy the food is...


A well-loved dish, sambal kang kong!


Salt & pepper fried squid!

Delicious delicious delicous~~

I remember when I was young and picky with my food, I didn't want to eat squid (it was too chewy for my liking lol) so I just ate the delicious fried batter with rice LOL.

After our reeeeally satisfying dinner (not gonna lie it was one of the highlights of the entire trip for me LOL) we went on a long car ride. It's kind of our 'tradition' to just drive somewhere like the city every night, we'll just listen to songs and eat and chit chat in the car :))

And since it's so late, all the stores are closed so we can only get food at 24-hour fast food drive-thrus :P


McDonald's milkshakes!! Strawberry for my sis and chocolate for moi :D

I'm not really a fan of milkshakes (such high fat and sugar content T^T) but I am a sucker for Macca's chocolate milkshakes! They are just so delicious omg ♥

Some pics I took from inside the car:




I felt so proud of myself for managing to snap a photo where both the red and green lights were being flashed at the same time!! I really wanted to use this as my Facebook cover photo but it's kinda ruined by the markings made because of the dirty car window so yeah. #coolstorybro




Christmas time so a lot of lights and decorations :)

Alright that's all for part one!

Chocolate Santa says "Bye!" and "See you next time! Don't be naughty~~~"

Salad.


Been eating this salad about thrice a week for a good month or so. I would actually eat it way more often but you can only get the salad from Cold Storage and there aren't any branches near me :(

Ingredients:

~Pre-packed Italian Rocket Salad from Cold Storage
Awesome! Besides the salad leaves (obvs), it also comes with a few cherry tomatoes, a packet of croutons, a sachet of balsamic vinaigrette and a lil plastic fork.

Normally I love croutons (my all-time fave salad is Caesar Salad, wink wink~) but they're not that healthy so I give them a miss. Anyways I substitute croutons with other things that make the salad have more bite and flavour. You'll see later on!

~Kraft Caesar Italian Fat Free dressing
I do use the original balsamic vinaigrette which comes with the salad but I also add a wee bit of this.
Oh goodness me, lemme rave about this for a lil bit. You know how I said my fave salad is Caesar right? But the dressing isn't that healthy coz it's cream-based and all. Well, this dressing is basically Caesar dressing except it's not cream based! It's more to the vinegar side, the consistency is runnier etc. But the thing is, the taste of Caesar dressing is there! So yeah, amazing fat free substitute. I highly recommend it for Caesar Salad lovers like myself~~

~Parmesan cheese
Y'all know how crazy I am about cheese so naturally I just dump a mountain of cheese powder onto my salad. Every time.

~Pine nuts
Awesome source of protein and healthy fats! As well as some other health goodness which I can't remember right now. Bottom line is, it's GOOD! They are, however, on the expensive side. Grrr.

Pine nuts add variety to the mouth feel of the salad and the nutty flavour is always nice :)

~Craisins
Cranberry raisins. Usually added to Waldorf Salad, I think? But they add more variety to the mouth feel of the salad and the sweet flavour is a great contrast!

Yup that's about all :)

I love salad soooooo much ♥

Yummy in my tummy~~

So yesterday I went to study with my girrrlfren~
Gosh can you believe I'm actually posting pictures that I took YESTERDAY? When have I ever been this efficient?!

Had lunch at Saizeriya which is one of my favourite restaurants. If you know Saizeriya, you probably already know why... Good food at ridiculously affordable prices!! /Criesss


My carbonara which had plenty of bacon! Delicious <3




My friend's mushroom and bacon risotto. She said it had a lot of mushrooms so. Thumbs up! Lolololol.

At Saizeriya, whatever food item you order you can pay an additional $2.80 for free-flow of drinks! Their drink choices include the usual soft drinks, orange juice, lemon barley and iced lemon tea. They also have a range of tea bags and a coffee machine. I must admit I'm not really a fan of coffee, my tummy is too weak for it, but I always love making the coffee here coz it is so FUN! Yeah basically just pressing a button and seeing the coffee filling the cup up but I am amused by this sort of thing xD

Happy discovery when the waiter brought the bill over, because we went at lunch time the drink buffet (lol) only cost $1.50!! OMGWTFBBQ RIGHT?!

Normally at restaurants the cheapest beverage on the menu is like $3-4 for a soft drink. And here we are getting unlimited drinks for only a dollar fifty?! DREAM COME TRUE~~~*~*

Teehee so yeah the cheapo in me was overjoyed about it.

For anyone who's curious I had a glass of iced lemon tea, a cup of mocha, a cup of latte and two cups of tea! One camomile and one peppermint. Usually don't drink tea except for green tea or iced milk tea (YUM) but I was having my...you know...so I thought it'd help soothe my uterus :) or whatever it's supposed to soothe lol.

After our delicious meal we sat there and did a lil bit of studying and a whole lot of chatting.

At one point during the lunch time crowd and the restaurant was pretty crowded, they blasted the airconditioning and it was ridonkulous. Literally it sounded like a tornado and when they suddenly switched it on all the diners were like !!! and turned their heads around in shock, thinking one of the ovens exploded or something. It got crazy cold and I legitimately was on the verge of freezing up but thank goodness my baby girl brought along a hoodie (which smelled amazing, btw) which she lent me! So sweet right omigosh thanks girrrl ♥

Shopped around for a bit afterwards.

I made this little promise to myself earlier in the year that I would not buy ANYMORE nail products til 2013. It was getting ridiculous, my cupboard is full of nail polishes that I use like once every two or three months. But I am getting sucked into it again omggg. Nail art is so much fun!! So yeah I'm looking forward to my nails getting nice and long then Im'ma paint them~~

Excited :D

And I'm probably gonna buy more nail stuff lol...It's like $2 so it's fine...right? :(





Crepe!!

Teehee~ For the past two or three times that I've been to Liang Court, I've always planned on getting a crepe but I'm always too full after pigging out at Saizeriya to get it! To be honest I was still pretty full this time but I just had to get it coz I'd been craving for it for like the whole week :P

The crepe I mean.

*shifty eyes*

Trolololol~

Well that's all for now! Cya next time ^_^

Snickerdoodles.


Oh, how I love croissants. Buttery and fluffy... I could just eat them all day long~~

Photobucket

My mum got this for me...it's so amazing. I love vanilla so so so much! Not a big fan of strawberry...In fact, I kinda hate strawberry-flavoured/strawberry-scented things :X I just find them overly sweet and a tad too strong...I like to eat strawberries though! :D


I was in awe the first day I used it...

First of all, it smells HEAVENLY. It's a very candy-like fragrance and it's AWESOME.

The buttery-ness makes it really sink into your lips instead of just staying there the whole day and being really heavy and icky.

And the best part? It kept my lips moisturised for over 12 hours in an air-conditioned room! #thumbsup


Le chocolates~~


"Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get."
-Forrest Gump


How cute is this lil teddy bear one?! Saved it for last coz I couldn't bear to eat it...HEHE look, I made a pun! Ohohohohohoho~~


I kept getting distracted by this headphone jack charm!! It's so ✦✮bling bling♦*✧ and I couldn't stop staring at it when I was playing Draw Something xD Speaking of which, do people still play? -_-

Zero of my friends play and I'm just finding random users to play with. Wahahaha~


Epic failure.

Teehee I'm really excited for tomorrow, going on a study date with my friend and we are gonna get amaaaaaazing food!! And we are gonna have so much fun chatting and being doofuses!! Oh and yeah I guess we are going to study too lolololol.

Alrighty cya :D

Scrum-diddly-umptious.

My cousins' birthday recently, so we were treated to a deeeeeee-lectable lunch! Or breakfast...I had just woken up teehee~


Oh god would you just look at that...

I have this habit whereby if I have an idea of what extraordinarily yummy food I'd be eating the next day, I'll spent the whole night thinking about it! So the night before the birthday celebration, I was lying in bed thinking about salted egg yolk prawns :P

They lived up to my expectations! Super yummy <3 data-blogger-escaped-center="">
Yam ring treasures!!

I personally hate yam. Or rather, I don't feel like trying it hur hur~

But the chicken cubes were yummy and y'all know how much I loooove vegetables so I really enjoyed the peppers and carrots and mushmoms. I also loved the cashew nuts! Mmmmm cashews~~~


Delicious tofu. Our usual order whenever we go to this restaurant!

Hidden beneath the tofu blocks is a HEAP of delicious green veggies!! Love love love <3 data-blogger-escaped-and="" data-blogger-escaped-center="" data-blogger-escaped-course...="" data-blogger-escaped-of="">

The birthday cake :)

I'm one of those people who doesn't like cakes but cheesecakes? YUM!
So I was really happy that it was an oreo cheesecake. MMMMMMMM SO YUMMY ZOMG.


Decadent, creamy cheesecake with a nice thin layer of chocolate cake. It was really good! Not too sweet, the taste of oreo was just right! It's from Crystal Jade Bakery, I highly recommend it ;)

Well, that's all for now! Toodles~! ^_^
