This shall be my last post for this week, and I am flying off to Penang later today! Finally a gateway which I can't wait. Will blog on my trip once I am back.

Earlier this week, I went to Mondo Mio for dinner after work, had always love the quaint Robertson Quay which takes my mind off the busy and hectic city life for a moment.

One of the refreshing starters I had, which is steamed cod and fruits salad. A hint of sourness from the fruits which makes it even more appetising.

1st October 2016 to 31st October 2016: 1-for-1 Cold Brew Promotion + Dine-In customers can also quote "I LOVE OCC" to get 15% off regular priced items with the purchase of an Ice Cold Brew.

 photo IMG_4317_zpsl3so3ac4.jpg
OCC Signature Ice Cold Brew S$5.90

It was International Coffee Day on 1st October, therefore O'Coffee Club is having this promotion for the whole month of October for dining in or takeaway.

Cold brew is difinately a refreshing option in this hot and humid weather on this sunny island. The coffee beans are steeped in cold water for 24 hours to extract the flavours. I am beginning to drink more of Americano and Black Cold Brew, trying to cut down on milk, although sometimes I still couldn't resist especially when the cafe offers Rose Latte.

Mint Chocolate and Caramel Ice Cold Brew are also available, sounds delicious indeed.

Thank you O'Coffee Club for sending the bottle of cold brew to curb the heat these few days.

Some weeks back, I brought Serene Unnie to the Oyster Frenzy at Sakura International Buffet. Being a oyster lover, it a good choice to bring her along. The usual oysters we see at other buffet lines are all ready-shucked and left it in the open on ice. These oyster here are freshly shucked upon request. I had more than what I usually eat, because its so fresh and plump.

Koh-Kae peanuts now available in pouch packaging

Sansesan sent some Koh-Kae peanuts over and they are good companions while I do my work at home, or in the office. Apart from the usual tin cans packaging, they now come in erasable pouches which makes them easier to store and ensure freshness.

They can be found in 7-Eleven, Cheers, Fairprice, Giant, Prime & Sheng Siong supermarkets.

Thank you Sansesan!

My favourite Ginger Drink - Gingen


 photo IMG_1632_zpsrwclkfa7.jpg

Proud to say I REALLY LOVE GINGER. Be it eaten raw or in the form of a drink. Even before Gingen sent me these, I have tried everything because everyday after lunch in the office, I will make myself a cup of ginger drink, to get rid of all bloatedness.

Somewhere end of August, after a tasting session, Randy, Diana & myself accidentally chanced upon a mini flea at Orchard Central Atrium, its so small that I didn't really take note the name of the flea, only took 2 name cards from the booths that I was interested in.
