My experience at KARA Cafe and Dessert Bar (Bukit Timah)

A cozy cafe located along the streets of Bukit Timah, a walkable distance from Tan Kah Kee MRT Station. KARA Cafe and Dessert Bar is no stranger in the neighbourhood as they have been around quite some time. The cafe primary focuses on serving Los Angeles-inspired “all-day dining” food and healthy eats such as yogurt. You may wish to know that the cafe is under the popular yogurt chain, Sogurt. Recently, I was invited by the cafe to try out their newly introduced items on the menu which is inspired by a Cali-Asian theme. 

Ambience: 7.5/10 
Cozy environment to relax and chill with your friends after school. The fixtures are decorated with a nature-inspired theme. 
Tropical Smoothies

I wanted to go for the standard coffee/tea, however decided to go with a smoothie instead. To my surprise, it was refreshing and yummy. I really enjoyed my tropical peach mango smoothie as the drink was well-balance and not too sweet.

Summer just begun with Brotzeit!

I have always been a huge fan of German food because the table will always be filled with plenty.  A standard German meal will usually consist of a variety of meat such as pork, beef and poultry. The meat is usually in a form of sausages. You would often see diners pairing it with beer.  I was recently invited by Brotzeit to experience their Summer Menu located one of their outlets at 313 Somerset. I was filled with excitement as it has been awhile since I last had German food. 
W├╝rstel Ringelspiel mit Brezn (Sausage Tower) 
Introducing the Sausage Tower with pretzels. Ordering this, you can have the choice of choosing between between their 1m long Smoked Chicken Cheese Sausage or Farmer’s Sausage (Pork) which is served on a wooden tower. If you wish to try both, you can also opt for their half and half option. This platter is also accompanied with two Bravarian pretzels. You may wish to know that their sausages are served with chilli sauce and two types of mustard of your choice.

My weight loss journey: How I lost 30kg in 1.5 years

If you followed me on my Instagram account, you may have noticed that my face has became a lot more smaller. Losing weight has always been in my new year's resolution for every year. However, that resolution would never seemed to be able to be achieved. Thus, I will bring forward to the next year instead! Haha, bet many of you guys would do that too, you are not alone! As you guys know, I am always associated with food. I admit that I am a glutton myself, I can't resist nice food and I tend to overeat most of the time. 
Before you continue reading, the purpose of me writing this post is to serve as a reminder for myself not to return to my original weight. Simultaneously, a few of my friends have also approached me to share with them some tips for losing weight. I promise to keep this post short and sweet as I also dislike reading lengthy posts! 
Before I begin, this blogpost will be filled with old photos of myself before my weight loss transformation.

My experience at Gills N Shells (Lavender)

I was invited for a food tasting session at Gills N Shells not long ago to try out their new dishes. Gills N Shells is a restaurant/drinking place that is inspired by the ocean. The restaurant specialises in seafood, thus they offer a vary of seafood dishes. They are dedicated to serve quality food with the best quality. Gills N Shells is easily accessible as they are located just behind Hotel Boss facing the river. The nearest train station is at Lavender MRT Station, thus it will only take a 5 minutes walk to get to this restaurant.

Gills N Shells recently launched their seafood platter served in a dim sum basket. As mentioned, there is a variety of seafood choices you can select from. However, there is a minimum order of three seafood choices. If you are an adventurous person or you can eat a lot, you may wish to order the All-in-A Basket Special. It comes along with all the seafood listed in the menu.

Orh Nee,Yam Cake from Buttertrade

Ever since when I was little boy, whenever I attend a wedding dinner, the food item that I always anticipate the most has got to be the orh nee dessert. I mean who doesn't loves yam!

Recently, I was greeted with an orh nee cake right at my door step thanks to Buttertrade

The cake is from Bloomsbury Bakers delivered by Buttertrade.

My experience at Soi 51 Mookata (Boon Lay Outlet)

Over the past few years, the Thai food scene has evolved rapidly in Singapore. Nowadays, you can easily walk into any Thai food eateries even at your neighbourhood district, you can even see them selling it at food courts. Mookata eateries are amongst the few evolving trends that are rising predominantly in Singapore. Still remember I used to go all the way to Golden Mile Complex with my makan kakis just to have mookata. Now you can have them almost at anywhere becuase they could be just a click away like how you are reading about this blogpost now! In today's context, we have 3 different kinds of DIY Cooking you can find in Singapore, we have the regular steamboat restaurant, we also have Korean BBQ (the hype kinda tone down a little in Singapore) and also last but not least, Mookata.   
I was recently invited by Soi 51 Mookata for a tasting session alongside with my friend. 

Interestingly, mookata is unlike you regular steamboat whereby you have a pot in the middle filled it up…
