March Recaps

Hello Lovelies! <3

It’s been so long I did a random “day in my life” type of blog post that I can’t even remember when was the last time I did a post like this! >.<

Nonetheless, as I’ve been repeating like a spoilt recorder that I’ve to update about the events I’ve been invited for and since my time is limited, I delay in blogging about the other random but unusual stuff I would take part in and capture in my daily life. So yes, altho it’s 2-3 months go, here’s my random updates from late Feb and March! ๐Ÿ˜€ Speaking of which, yes you can expect to look forward to April and May’s editions which are 3-5times longer than this. HAHA.

Dinner date with Bini at the new (then new, LOL) Concetto by Saveur modern day italian restaurant

Daily: 12:00 – 21:30

2014-02-27 20.12.56

Salmon with Peas. Peas too salty for my liking by I would go back for the Salmon again. I love salmon!!! Also Bini recommends their Prawn Aglio Olio, only except I can’t eat prawns. ๐Ÿ™

Then we went to check out this cute Lego ice cream shop called “Bricks and Cubes” which apparently been around for a while except we just didn’t try it.

I don’t mean to disappoint by the Ipad ordering system doesnt seem to be very user friendly, I ended up going to the counter to order instead!

Ice cream and waffle was unfortunately so-so, we had oreo and green tea. Super generous portions, priced at I think ~ $10, so not exactly cheap. I would pay for this with a group of 4 persons next time, plus the cafe is generally quite empty. Good to go with friends and play card games!

Carolina Herrera bracelet gift <3 My classiest bracelet thus far !2014-02-28 11.02.59

Went for FarEast New Station Snack Bar Salted Egg Pork Rib Dish with church matesL

2014-03-08 14.20.45

Also received this cute and free Jacqueline Burchell nail polish sample along Orchard Road during International Women’s day! Whose founder’s daughter I actually met in May at Luxola event, more of that in May’s post (I am finally getting down to all my event and review blog posts and clearing my back log, so my April and May recaps will come up soon, yay & phew~!).2014-03-09 15.03.01

Michelle Nail Colour Polishes I bought at Cineleisure! From Beadstreet shop that sells a lot of affordable accessories! Only $2 each and surprisingly really good pigmentation at 1st coat!ย 
2014-03-09 22.01.47My nail art done by yours truly! I usually don’t have much patience for nail art, so I was quite happy with the results of this and I got a lot of compliments for it. HEHE.

I randomly chanced about Sunsilk Pop Up Hair Salon at Plaza Sing before The Face Shop event, so I had a free hair makeover & shoot!

2014-03-13 18.23.54 2014-03-13 18.24.22 2014-03-13 18.26.55

I really like the half braid hair do!

It was my sister’s bday in March, so we had a Spizza home delivery!!!

The verdict is that it tastes better when you eat in the restaurant. But of course still delicious nonetheless! And we totally over-ordered, for 5 people, (dad, mum and 3 sisters) doesn’t help that other than dad all of us are girls and generally eat lesser, haha.

My colleague and I passed by Bedok Mall after lunch and saw this IRON MAN statue.2014-03-03 13.38.10

Omg, so awesome!!!

Price tag is equally awesome, I can’t remember if it’s $10,000 or $13,000 now. One of the figure!

This is totally not sponsored but I’m guessing you guys might wanna know the contact:

Ohaiyo Japan! (1)


Ohaiyo is the informal way of saying Good Morning in Japanese, the short form of Ohaiyo Gozaimasu.ย I won’t be teaching Japanese on my blog here, as I only know of a few casual phrases myself. ^^


Have you checked out our Kizuna 10 FB page? Check it out and LIKE it here if you have not!!!


Over this week, I’ll be uploading photos from the 10 day trip that my school mates and I took back in March. We were very generously sponsored and invited by Japan to be part of the Kizuna (Bond) project as part of 100 Singaporean students and tutors to visit and indulge in the rich Japanese culture and heritage! You can check out more of the Kizuna project here.

Without further ado, here are some photos from the 1st 2 days of the 10 day trip that my school mates and I took back in March! ๐Ÿ™‚

Japan Kizuna Trip 11th March – 19th March 2013 (Arriving back to Singapore on the 20th March)

Ena Japan 2013

Pre-flight, with my lovely travel buddy Ying! ๐Ÿ™‚

Ena Japan 2013 2

The view from the plane as we were about to land in Japan… It was the end of winter and early Spring, thus the brown fields.

Ena Japan 2013 3

As we near nearing, we can begin to see the plane’s shadow! So cute right? ^^

Ena Japan 2013 43

This is how they unload the cargo from the plane! Yes, I had a very good view from where I was seating. ^^

Our plane landed at about 4pm and we were scheduled to reach the hotel by coach at about 6.30pm but due to peak period traffic, we reach only about 7.30pm! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Ena Japan 2013 45

Finally got the keys to our room in Tokyo Grand Hotel! I love how vintage the room keys are. ^^ The yellow book is our very detailed and informative handbook for the trip! My schoolmates and I were part of Group A with other students from Temasek Poly and Raffles Design Institute.

Ena Japan 2013 5

ย How the hotel room looks like! Small but well equipped. Beds were very comfy. Japanese style robes were laid on the beds for occupants to change into. The view from our room shows the office opposite and at 7.30pm we still saw office workers working away!

Ena Japan 2013 4

ย The toilet is clean and well equipped.

Ena Japan 2013 6

As we reached pretty late, dinner was prepared in very dainty lunch boxes. It was far too much rice for us to consume… Heh.

Ena Japan 2013 7

Post dinner, our first night’s activity began with convenient shops shopping! HAH. There were 3 convenient shops around our hotel and pretty much nothing else. We would soon realize that’s pretty much all the shopping we could do during this except for the last day at Tokyo. ๐Ÿ˜› Here you see MUJI stuff at their convenient store! In Singapore MUJI shop has its stand alone boutiques in town, Orchard. The prices are definitely cheaper in Japan, almost 50%! ^^

Ena Japan 2013 8

This, my dear friends, is one of my favourite food in Japan. It’s sold in the convenient store and you pick out what you want and place them in the containers provided, pour a little soup in and pay up. I bought the sausage and vermicelli ย and they were AWESOME. Super tasty! ^^v

Ena Japan 2013 9

We were told that Tokyo Tower was a 10 min walk away, so the Lasalle group decided to take a walk out together! We came across a subway station and decided to take a look and “recee” for our last night when we get back to Tokyo. ๐Ÿ˜›

Ena Japan 2013 10

We made our way back to the convenient shops again! Check out the cup noodles from the land of Nissin! ๐Ÿ™‚ Totally reminded me of my JC PW (for the uninitiated, stands for Junior College Project Work) where my group mates and I researched and presented on Momofuku Ando, the founder of Nissin cup noodles!

Ena Japan 2013 11

My supper for the night! Tasty sweet courn noodles with dessert!

Day 2~!

Ena Japan 2013 41

My outfit for day 2~

Selca with cutie Ying~

Ena Japan 2013 13

Candid of Lasalle peeps, Xav, Adeline, Alex and SJ, during our morning walk around our hotel! ๐Ÿ™‚

Ena Japan 2013 14

Even the dogs in Tokyo are cute!

Ena Japan 2013 15

This photo commemorates our Lasalle hero, Alex who wore shorts out in the cool weather of below 15 degrees. *thumbs up* ๐Ÿ˜›

Ena Japan 2013 16

Our resident cutie Desmond, with his ice cream and Alex photo bombing. HAHA.

Ena Japan 2013 17

Billboard along the streets of real life Japanese criminal hunt list. :O It’s scary!

Ena Japan 2013 18

The use of order, pattern and symmetry is found practically everywhere on the streets of Japan.

Ena Japan 2013 19

Even the office workers smoke in an orderly fashion!

Ena Japan 2013 20

The flowers along the roads are happy. ^^

Ena Japan 2013 21

The waterworks covers are too cute! This one’s self explanatory, is for fire hydrant hoses in case of fire.

We had to attend a talk back in the hotel on Earthquakes in Japan, but I won’t be going into details about that. ๐Ÿ˜›

Ena Japan 2013 22

Our sushi packed lunch, rice and egg and seaweed.

Ena Japan 2013 25

After lunch on day 2, we had some free time so we took a walk around the hotel and we discovered this! The REAL Yakiniku (Japanese barbeque) which we often see in Singaporean malls!

Ena Japan 2013 26

Our brave tutor/supervisor/”SUPER leader” Ginette took the first plunge. HAHA. AND boy it was GOOD. ๐Ÿ˜€ So we all took turns to buy one stick and shared with each other. ^^

Ena Japan 2013 24

Here’s a random shot of Ying all happy and cute. ^^

Ena Japan 2013 23

Look, Ma! Penang restaurant in Japan! ๐Ÿ˜›

Ena Japan 2013 42

My buys of the day from convenient store shopping. HEH. Coffee, gums and sugarrr.

After attending the afternoon talk, we packed up and moved out on coach for our next destination for the next few days!

Ena Japan 2013 44

We stopped at a pit stop during the coach ride and LOOK WHAT I FOUND. A basket of cuties!!!

Ena Japan 2013 27

I simply couldn’t resist. So I brought one with me. ^^ It costs about S$6. And it has beans in the tummy! It’s happily on my desk now.

Ena Japan 2013 28

We arrived! At Hotel Omoide Roman-kan, Daigo Town, Ibaraki Prefecture! It’s a Japanese traditional type of hotel stay.

Ena Japan 2013 30

This is how the room looked like when we first got our bags in and trying to get them sorted~.

Ena Japan 2013 31

The balcony area.

Ena Japan 2013 29

The toilet area.

Ena Japan 2013 40

And I realize in Japan, the exit is called “้žๅธธ ้˜ถๆฎตโ€œ which when translated it means “not the usual steps” cool huh! ๐Ÿ™‚

In case you were wondering, I can read and understand chinese characters and traditional Japanese characters use chinese characters. ๐Ÿ™‚

Ena Japan 2013 34

We quickly got things sorted and went down for dinner! ๐Ÿ˜€

Ena Japan 2013 37

LOOK AT THE SPREAD YO. This one’s dessert cakes and the super yummy greek style yogurt in the steel bowl! ^^v

Ena Japan 2013 36

Tomato pasta!!!

Ena Japan 2013 35

Super yummy Japanese tempura (fried) sticks! An assorted choices of fishes and vegetables with the descriptions, if you can read, on the end of the sticks! <3

Ena Japan 2013 38

Along the walkway you’ll find many pressed floral art like this! So pretty! ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

Ena Japan 2013 39

When we got back to our room… IT WAS TRANSFORMED! ๐Ÿ˜€


Ena Japan 2013 32

Ena Japan 2013 33

We decided to try the tidbit offered in the room! It was complimentary. this one’s plum flavored soft pastry. Super nice, I bought 2 boxes back home before we left. ๐Ÿ™‚

That’s all for today! Come back soon for my next update!
