As my house is no where near any of the merchants indicated above, so I shall blog about my first experience with Deliveroo. I have tried another food delivery service, I still prefer Deliveroo because of the pre-order option, real time tracking and on time delivery.

Souper Tang @ The Centrepoint

Address: 176 Orchard Road #02-52 & #02-K01 The Centrepoint Singapore 238843
Tel: +65 67376772
Operating Hours: 11.30am to 10pm Daily

Super Tang, previously known as Tang Shifu (not an unfamiliar name if you have been to JB's City Square Mall often) opens first outlet out of Malaysia, here in Singapore. I haven't been to JB very often but Souper Tang leaves an impression, maybe its due to my love for soups. There are 18 Souper Tang outlets in Malaysia currently.

Centrepoint underwent a revamp and there are many eateries sprouting at the new wing.

Hello!! Finally I am travelling (as what Cleo said, and she is freaking happy for me, like even more excited than me before I fly). Because work is so bad and hectic that I got no mood at all even the night before I am bound for Bangkok, so much that I even went jogging till late, and leaving with only 2.5 hours of sleep hahah!

I am thankful for this trip and travelling companions, it really keeps my mind off work COMPLETELY for that few days. I am also thankful that I have a no-fuss room partner Hannah, and the more BKK experience dong seangs Jacq & Nikki.

Hannah helped us to communicate a little in thai, and the dong seangs know roughly where to go, keep themselves awake on taxi rides to ensure our safety.

Ollella @ Petain Road

Last Sunday, after lunch we hopped over to Ollella for their pretty and delicate cream puffs.

The only time we can "hi can we get 1 of each?" Is when we get together 👫👭👸🏻

Tiramisu S$5
Matcha Azuki S$4.50
Apple Cinnamon S$4
Dark Chocolate S$4.50
Raspberry S$5
Lemon Meringue S$4
Vanilla S$4


These pretty little choux are 5cm in diameter, there are also mini choux (3cm diameter) that comes in a platter of 7 for S$21. 

My favourite is Lemon Meringue, the perfect sourish lemon curd and sweet meringue. 

I feel that the Matcha Azuki is not strong enough, I prefer those matcha that is of slightly bitter and stronger in taste. 

Dark chocolate on the other hand is very rich. 

Vanilla is decent and a safe choice. 

Sissy J loves the apple cinnamon which I find that it's pretty good too.

Signature Dry Chili Pan Mee S$5

Weeks ago, boss brought us out for Kin Kin Chili Pan Mee! Finally get to try after all the raves but was rather disappointed, it tasted so so, portion is pretty small too. I go easy on the chili, but didn't find it any fantastic either. But I am thankful for the air-conditioned place, which means NO PIGEONS, and not too hot.

Blossom Beats @ Flower Dome, Gardens by The Bay

Address: 18 Marina Gardens Drive Singapore 018953
Operating Hours: 9am to 9pm

#BlossomBeats floral display is available from now till 27th March 2016.

Made use of the chance using free tickets from my company to come and see all sorts of blossoms including Cherry & Peach blossoms. This is the first time the display last for only 2 weeks, this explains the huge crowd here! The crowd makes the trip here unenjoyable. Its like you have to keep moving, to let people have the chance to take pictures and yet you got to wait for people to move in order for you to take a good picture without their faces/part of the head or body inside.

Its also my first time having to queue to go in to Flower Dome, as well as the 2 mini exhibits inside Flower Dome, and the queue is pretty long.

I prefer the Christmas and CNY themes better.

(I am having problems with photo bucket and blogspot, my pictures got jumbled up, I can't type any caption in between my pictures. So this explains why I have this lengthy opening.)
