CNY 2015

Hahaha figured I should document about my lunar/chinese new year before I get too caught up with life again…. *Sighs*

CNY this year is like any other year… Visiting, eat, play cards, talk… Which is really fun to me because I get to be in the company of people I enjoy being with. And it’s the time of the year when I can find tidbits in my house when I have those random urge to snack hahaha.

CNY is also the period where you can dress outrageously and nobody will judge you (I think). But this year I actually didn’t plan my outfits way in advance because I was too busy to even think about it. What made thing worse is that 2 days before CNY, I was down with food poisoning after coming back from Thailand…. :/ But thankfully I felt better to enjoy my holiday!

Day 1:

Day 1 outfit:
Top from some blogshop, skirt from BKK

Hahaha I actually just decided on this outfit like on the actual day…

Just going to spam photos because they’re self-explanatory. All of the photos (except the first) are from my iPhone6. It’s good enough that I don’t feel the urge to use my digital camera anymore!

With my mum.

With Ger and her meh meh which she bought from Taobao just for CNY!! So cute right!

My younger brother (people says that he’s older than me. Thank you thank you)

While waiting for the bus (which took like 20mins to arrive), we took lots and lots of photos. And this is what guys do for the girls…
1) Help to take photos 2) Double up as bags hanger lolol

Oh yes, this year’s CNY was a little different because my cousins gave birth and we had little kids to play with!

With Baby Jerelle!

And this is what I look forward to ever year… Yummy yummy steamboat that my aunt prepares!!!

Day 2:
Our yearly tradition on day 2 of CNY is to go for a nice lunch with all my relatives from my mum’s side. This year, we went to Jumbo @ NSRCC

We also have themes we agree to wear every year and this year it’s midi skirts hahaha. Midis don’t really flatter me but okay la once a year only la!

The one common phrase you’ll keep hearing is “HUAT AH” x10000

My precious little cousin who’s now ‘disturbing’ us on Whatsapp every now and then with a humour that I don’t really understand…. Hahaha. And kids nowadays are really lucky! I only got my first mobile phone when I was 11 (and it wasn’t a smartphone).

“Come let’s take a selfie”

I feel really old around them… But then again they make me feel young haha.

And these were taken when we’re walking…

Such a precious photo.

Back to my house for mahjong after that and this is one of the crazy things we do (shared with Pris & Ger)…… Hahaha. We did win for this round btw!

Ending off the post with this ultra cute sheep! Wishing everyone good health and best of luck in the year of the goat! :)

Online Delivery with FoodPanda Singapore

True story: My brother and I are very lazy people and we’re always ordering food delivery when we’re home alone.. When it comes to convenience, I’ll gladly pay since we have not much things to eat near out place. And when you think of delivery, you’ll usually think of things like Mcdonalds, KFC, etc… but we wanted more varieties!

The other day we were craving for Yoshinoya but they do not have their own in-house delivery website.. That’s when we found out about FoodPanda. FoodPanda is an online food delivery portal which delivers food from various local restaurants, right to your doorstep! They are currently operating in 30 countries worldwide.

Ordering from FoodPanda is pretty fuss free. Just key in your postal code to search for restaurants which deliver to your location, order your food, pay and enjoy your food when it gets delivered to your doorsteps!

FoodPanda offers a wide variety of cuisine. Want Indian food? Japanese food? They’ve got it covered!

So after keying in my postal code, I get to choose from 40 over restaurants.
What I like about FoodPanda is that if I don’t know what to eat, I can always go onto FoodPanda and slowly choose from the many many varieties. No more eating the same food over and over again! Woohoo!

I saw that they even have delivery for Burger King (my favourite fast food restaurant, but only for those in the West whyyy) and Nandos for delivery now!!  Hope that more restaurants will be added!

They also have a mobile app for iOS/Android users. I already have it downloaded on my phone and I foresee myself using it a lot! :)

Review: SingTel WiFi

I’m sure mobile data has become one of the necessities in most of our lives. I think I’ll be bored to death without being connected to Whatsapp, Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, especially if I have to wait for a long time for someone (*stares at my boyf*).

If you’re someone who’s frequently looking out for WiFi hotspots in shopping malls, you might have notice that ‘SingTel WiFi’ has appeared as one of the network selections in certain malls and even MRT stations.

If you’ve always been wondering what that is and how you can access it… Please read on!

SingTel WiFi

Remember the SingTel Combo Plan that I’ve introduced awhile back? This range of mobile plans are fully integrated with a new premium high-speed WiFi network that it is rolling out at crowded locations and underground MRT stations. With this plan, you can now tap on SingTel’s high-speed WiFi on the go without compromising on your mobile data bandwidth. The best part – customers will enjoy unlimited WiFi usage until 31 July 2015! Woohoo!

It has been about 2 weeks since I’ve changed over to this new plan and I’m amazed by the number of WiFi hotspots SingTel has! I don’t know if I’m just very lucky or what but almost all the malls I went and the usual route I take on the MRT have got it!! But actually it’s nothing to be surprised about because by March 2015, approximately 1,000 hotspots at more than 100 locations across the island will have been deployed. These numbers are expected to double by March 2016.

And the speed is really wonderful! Unlike free public WiFi networks, SingTel’s WiFi network is fully managed to ensure high quality performance. It can provide connectivity that is five times faster than typical free public WiFi services. (Average typical speeds of SingTel WiFi range from 4 to 10Mbps.)

This is what my Facebook page shows when I’m using 3G on the train.. It’s really annoying when I’m trying to see new blogshop launches and the pictures refuse to show up…

But once I’m connected to the SingTel WiFi (happened to pass by the stop which has the hotspot), the pictures load super quickly! And using this WiFi service is so convenient because it auto connects and there is no password required! Just switch on my WiFi and it’ll automatically tap onto the WiFi whenever it’s available.

So far I’ve tried using the WiFi service to stream shows while waiting for my friends and connectivity is so fast I’ve no complaints. Also, connecting to WiFi instead of using 3G also means that my battery life can last longer! This also helps alot in ensuring that I keep to within my mobile data limit so I don’t pay extra!

For the full list of SingTel WiFi hotspot locations, please visit!

1st post of 2015

It’s kind of sad that one entire month has already passed and I’m only at my first post of 2015… :( :( Anyway, just a quick update before I disapper again (hopefully not for long!!)

Visited a Korean restaurant near Amoy Street with some colleagues after work just last week.

 I think side dishes are the highlight of Korean cuisine.. But I only like 2 out of xx dishes.

 Army Stew. The soup’s really nice and according to my colleague, this is filled with all the sinful meat (hotdog, bacon, etc) all in 1 pot.

Love the seafood pancake! Crispy on the outside and soft on the inside! The serving was really huge as well.

Topokki. I skipped this dish cos I’m not a fan of the sauce. But according to my colleagues it’s really well-prepared.

 Some beef glass noodles. Love it!

I was really looking forward to the BBQ meat. I love meat, I can’t do without meat.

Love the fluffy egg that’s cooked at the sides while the meat is cooking as well. We ordered 3 different kinds of meat to share.

 50% Soju, 50% beer.
Cheers to a good working year ahead.

After dinner, we walked down to Chinatown to get our dessert fix.

 After that, we headed down to Chinatown for our dessert fix.

 Ordered a Mango & Green Tea shaved ice to share.

 Here’s a tip: Eat the Green Tea first before eating the Mango because everything tastes blend after the sweet Mango.

Okay end of the food porn… Typing this at 12am and I’m really hungry. :/

So 1 month just flew by like that… So many things to catch up on, but new things keep piling on. :( I realised one bad habit of mine is that I tend to worry alot. And it’s really bad because the things I worry about are actually not fully within my control. I need to relax and tell myself that whatever will be will be, and worrying doesn’t change anything! *Breathe x5*

Feb is going to be another busy month.. I’ll be flying to Thailand (business + leisure) in 2 weeks time and after that it’s CNY already!! And I still haven’t shopped for my CNY clothes and I’m still not done with my spring cleaning and I think my parents wouldn’t be too happy with that. *panic mood*

Speaking of spring cleaning, I’ve already thrown away bags and bags of stuff, but my room still looks like it’s in the same state as before (which is super crowded), how is that even possible???
