Original Tiramisu Ice Cream S$6.90
Banamisu Ice Cream S$6.90

The popular Kiss The Tiramisu desserts from Seoul, Korea has arrived on our shores! Me and the Pai Kias decided to give it a try after our dinner on a workday. There are only 2-3 person in the queue, it was pretty quiet. We ordered 2 out of the 3 flavours that are available on the menu.

Ice cream is decent but not to the extend of the hype that we saw on their in-store TV. Or maybe it taste better in Korea. Banamisu tasted like the Binggae Korean Banana Milk, but both melted too quickly, in no time they turned into milk. I personally felt that its very messy to eat, the ice cream dripped down the glass, onto our hands and its quite pricey taking the fact that we can get llao llao or Hvala at the basement of 313 Somerset.

Trying to slow down my pace, and getting more rest time for myself since I am getting weaker as I aged. So glad to be finally starting to do some updates here, slowly but surely.

Its my 2nd time to Diamond Kitchen, and I remembered that day I wasn't feeling well but to my surprised I enjoyed the food so much even though I am not well. This goes to show how good they are.

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.

A couple of weeks ago, I just started on Shou Slimming's Coffee Svelte. I won't say it is a slimming coffee, because slimming is not as easy as just drinking coffee, it needs hard work ad workouts.

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.
