Continuing on my blog recaps, let’s dive into July, my birthday month! (Check out my June post here if you haven’t) I’ve also travelled to Bali with friends for Jac’s during the same month and will be posting about the trip in a separate blog post cause otherwise this post would be too long. Once again, tons of food posts below, don’t read on an empty stomach! 😛
Started my month with a homemade sandwich – a regular combination consists of ham, lettuce, cheese & tomatoes – sometimes I cook eggs and add them in too. Easy peasy!Headed down to Wandervale EC for a client meeting.
LAKSA STEAMBOAT SEAFOOD RESTAURANT
Laksa Steamboat Seafood Restaurant 404 Telok Blangah Road Singapore 098840. Tel: 62757069
This is really good, about $30-40/pax but fresh ingredients and really yummy Laksa soup base, recommended! 😀
Marina Square 6 Raffles Boulevard #02-26. Singapore 039594. Telephone: +(65) 6255 0491.
Attended the media preview/launch of HokaOneOne, shoes for running professionals – “crazy” people who go on 500km races!
Couldn’t resist trying McDonald’s Salted Egg Chicken Burger – I was lucky that I tried one after the complains that the salted egg was too little – so I got one with quite liberal amount, yay! Would most definitely eat one again except it was only on the menu for a limited time.
Birthday Celebration @ Sumiya
181 Orchard Rd, #12-02 Orchard Central, Orchard Central, 238896
It was my first time going to Sumiya at Orchard Central and I enjoyed it! Only except we over ordered and couldn’t finish, hahaha. Also chanced upon really nice photo-taking spots on the rooftop! Always thankful for my friendship with Christabelle and Clarabelle. <3
BAD CAFE THAT SHALL NOT BE NAMED
Not even gonna name the cafe, both Belles recommended this cafe but that day we went, it served up lousy lemonade – granted they replaced it but their service still sucked nonetheless. You’d notice I usually don’t complain about stuff on my blog cause I don’t like to give air time to shitty things but man – this cafe is crap and if you know which it is, don’t ever go back again and I can’t wait to pop a champagne on the day they close.
Estee Lauder Global Makeup Artist FW Show
Attended the Estee Lauder’s makeup show and got introduced to a ton of new makeup!
They have this skin – foundation matcher device, cool!
Some of my favourite lipstick swatches! Estee Lauder is also on board the duo lipstick! My favourite combi of the lot! 3 different looks; work, date & casual weekends.Some of my faves!A engraving machine engraving our lipsticks at the event!
Sunday @ PunggolAttended Xiao Kai Lao Shi’s event thanks to Starhub! He’s really handsome irl and I remember him sharing about that glow which is really popular on Korean actresses – add that highlight on your cheekbones!
Headed out for a meet up with Fenny at Punggol Pond (which is actually at Hougang).
Nice view isn’t it?Cousin bought this yummy Mochi from Punggol Waterway Point for a gathering at my sister’s place. Got a new coat of colour at Chez Vous… got to say this is probably the chio-est colour I’ve had on the hair!
Skincare goodies!Was sent over some products from Gobigoun (Korea), This Placenta Power mask is super good… and under the rader… When I saw a store stocking it at Myeong Dong it was selling a piece for like $10/piece! Is it worth it? $10 is too much for me to shell out for a piece, but it definitely hydrates my skin intensely.
They also have a Placenta Power moisturizer, but haven’t put this to the test yet.TheFaceShop’s The Therapy lotion and moisturizer.And TFS Make My Sexy Back mist spray (replacing my powder), cute nail polish and free masks and samples cause I signed up as a member, yay!
Another pic of skincare + nail care; been really loving the Hada Labo Hydrating Lotion – one of my favourite toners I’ve used in 2016!Breadtalk sent this over – super cute electronic fan I must say!
Also got sent over these Nivea goodies – Micellar Water is a marked improvement from the previous version and used the lotions for Batam trip!Kiehl’s New Nightly Refining Micro-Peel Concentrate.
What I packed for my Batam / Batam trips! Head over to my post about Zaful loots here.
Dream // Soup Spoon x Brazil Food Tasting
Met up with Fenny again for Soup Spoon tasting and took some OOTDs before that!
Clio Korean Morning Beauty Booster Recipe @ Boufe Cafe
This was so good! Not usually a fan of granola but this is so good.Amazing drink that changes colour!
Same Korean emcee as the last Clio lipstick I attended, she’s good!
Pics with Maybelline & Cyndi!Primer, foundation, finishing powder and mist!O.P.I. Alice Disney Collection!
Kanshoku Ramen Bar w Family
277 Orchard Road, Orchard Gateway #01-06, 238858
We tried a bit of everything, truffle soup ramen was good, but for the other times I went back after this, I opted for their regular ramen! 🙂 The cold veg was surprisingly good, the chicken was not good – don’t order it!
Batam Trip @ Nongsa Point Marina & Resort with Ayerslol pls ignore my obvious double eye lid sticker here.
We were really hungry and had a late dinner around 9+ at the resort. It’s about SGD$10 so it’s not cheap for Batam standards but ok for restaurant standard. This was so good, we had it again for lunch before we left. <3Brought Auolive skincare for the trip! Very fuss free indeed.Added in hair care from Phil Smith (fave hair oil) and Nivea sunblocks.Love buffet breakfast at the resort!
Enjoy the views!
So cute how the waves cause scallop shapes on the shores.
Lunch at Panties Pizza @ Batam Plaza
This was cheap and good! Go with a huge group and try tons of different flavours!
We kinda went crazy on Chitatos, lol.And here we are trying to take “Paparazzi shots” lol!#JustForFun.
Dinner at 555(?)
Ok, so the mistake we made was to take up the resort’s driver’s offer to go on a “day trip intinerary” with him and he gave us ALL THE SHITTY RECOMMENDATIONS. 🙁 So other than our Batam Plaza choice, he brought us to a bad massage place and this terrible dinner place, urgh.
The coconuts were NOT FRESH. 🙁I don’t eat prawns but I didn’t miss out on anything.
Lunch before we left! Love how happy and vibrant this photo is! <3Thanks Jie Jie for getting me this strawberry shortcake! <3NDP Preview which I wrote about on my Dayre here.
Michael Trio Event // Birthday Celebration at Chicken Up
Wore my Kapten & Son watch out, loving the black face and rosegold band! With fellow bloggers at Michael trio event!
Dinner at Chicken Up, my first time there! Everything was really good but we ate so little of it cause we were all so health conscious LOL should opt for health food next time! Lisa, Tiffy & Ethel <3
Thanks girls! <3
Another basket of skincare goodies from Hada Labo and Skin Aqua! (Sorry it’s a little over exposed!)
Dinner with bestie Fion
Bestie’s treat to Korean good at Manna Story at Plaza Singapura. Food was so-so in my opinion. Nothing to shout about. Would go again only if I was craving Korean food and in the area. Would prefer Seoul Yummy at Bugis+ over this option!
68 Orchard Road, #B2-22, Plaza Singapura, Plaza Singapura, 238839
I have some more photos from a Jap food / ramen dinner with my family and korean dinner with bestie Fion but those won’t load. 🙁 Will have to skip then! *Edit: I manage to load them, yay!
Thank you for reading! Till the next one! <3
