Elephant Parade Mission! - Half Accomplished!

A week ago, Maria called me up and told me if I wanted to go on a trip to search for elephants around Singapore. Have you seen the elephant statues around Orchard? Very good example is the one at Somerset 313.

I'm 100% sure you have seen this the outside of 313.


OH YES, ALL PHOTOS TODAY NO PHOTOSHOP.

More about this exhibition, elephants are placed around in Singapore, most of them are in Orchard, 25 are in Singapore Zoo and a few are at Vivocity. Each elephant statues has it's own meaning and a special name and of cos each with a very unique design. So you are probably thinking what are they going to do with the elephants after this certain event. They are gonna auction it and place it somewhere after that.


BEFORE I START WITH THE PHOTOS AND STUFF.

( This is only valid for lazy people that don't want to read my blog and you can watch this video instead ) - Part 1 only...
SO IF YOU ARE WAITING FOR PART 2 THEN TOO BAD! :D You will just have to read my blog for the full details.


So Maria & my goal was to find all of the elephant statues and take photos with each and every one of them. At first, she told me that this is going to be some crazy attempt, I was like why not try it out? But as what the title has said, it is half accomplished because we can't possibly finish it in one day so our goal was to take as many as we can. There are a total of 100+ elephants btw!

As for my usual routine, I met Maria at City Hall, because I promise to go eat with her at a buffet restaurant. Supposed to meet her at 1130. She came at 12pm and for the first time I was not LATE. You know how happy can I be? :D

Lunch-ed at Kuishin-Bo buffet restaurant. The meal cost me a bombed but it's worth it for all the raw salmon you can eat.
heeheheh I love Japanese foood! (L)
Maria's plate is like all so organized la!!
Udon soup. uhmmmmmm so yummy!!
Crab meat coleslaw. WAHH DAMN NICE SIA...
Hahahaha this is fried potato.
Teriyaki sauce with Salmon
Wahhhhhhh hungry or not ?

LOL, I was quite lazy to take photos so I only took a few. I like had massive rounds of raw salmon. Keep eating nonstop. LOL.
Aiyo, look at her tummy!? Hahahah so bloated!
TROLOLOLOL, mine was none the less better. Oh wait! I always have a fat tummy.

If would have been a better idea, if we took a before and after shot HAHAHA



After lunch, we decided to visit the zoo first. (Actually I was rather excited to look for animals then the elephant statues ) Okay confession made. Please don't come and attack me, MARIAA!
We finally made it to the Zoo!! Despite the long transportation after sitting in the bus. My butt pain.

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.

Taipei Day 1: Ximending 西门町

Link:  http://www.uncletehpeng.com/2015/03/taipei-day-1-ximending.html

Hi guys! Okay, as you can see from the title above, I'm going to blog about my Taiwan trip I went 2 weeks ago. It was a last minute getaway trip because I was only told a week before the trip, I totally freaked out because you know my wish is to visit Taiwan and finally it has been fulfilled. So in your mind you must be wondering, 1 week only, how are you going to find a hotel and book your air tickets in time?

Thanks to http//www.expedia.sg I was able to find my accommodation plus in a good area some more! Wanted to stay at Ximending but most of the hotels there were fully booked and the only available ones at Ximending were far from the MRT station. Thanks to expedia, I was able to source out  another hotel, which is a train stop before Ximending, Taipei Main Station. In Taipei traveling is so convenient because almost every place is accessible by the MRT.
After making all the accommodation arrangements, the n…

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.
