My experience at Hai Xian Lao 海鲜捞 (Shaw House)

I have always been a huge fan of Hotpot, Korean BBQ and Mookata (Thai-steamboat) restaurants. I used to remember back in my polytechnic days, I would have them every once a week. Hotpot can be pricy for a student/NSF like me. Hence, I would prefer to visit a restaurant that offers buffet style. This is because you can enjoy unlimited servings of food provided if you can finish them. I feel that it usually makes my money more well-spent. Additionally, having steamboat with your friends and family fosters bonding and a good time with your friends. I was recently invited by Hai Xian Lao to try out their hotpot.

Prior to attending this tasting, I have actually visited their restaurant quite a few times with my friends (non-sponsored). I first got to know HXL from a video that was featured by NOC Food King. Aiken mentioned that the prawn broth was fantastic and full of flavour. Hence, I was curious and went to try it out. Truth to be told, I personally find that HXL is one o…

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 
(Left, Tropical Peach Mango; Right, Chai Avocado Shake), SGD$8.20 
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. 
Beef …

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. 
Würstel 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.
