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.

Maria's plate is like all so organized la!!
Udon soup. uhmmmmmm so yummy!!

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 Charlie Brown Cafe (Cathay Cineleisure Orchard)

Awhile ago, I was invited back to Charlie Brown Cafe as I was told that they had revamped their menu and there were a few new offerings on their menu. Charlie Brown Cafe now has 2 outlets mainly in Singapore, one located at Cathay Cinleisure Orchard, a popular youth destination, and One KM Mall at Paya Lebar.  The entire cafe is designed in a Charlie Brown theme, if you had watched the movie, Peanuts or you grew up watching Charlie Brown, then you should be familiar with the characters in the show/movie. The entire cafe takes up about 30-40 seats and the ambience was conducive.  Root Beer Float & Coffee Macchiato Shot Mashed Potatoes  Price: $4.20  Made from fresh potatoes topped with gravy and chicken chipolata (sausage). The mashed potato was fluffy and wasn't lumpy just maybe the sauce was slightly overpowering which diminishes the taste of the mashed potatoes. I would prefer if the sauce was lesser. However, it was a great combination of addi

My experience at Kim's Family Food (Korean Food)

I was recommended by my friend Qin Pin to try out this Korean Restaurant that she had been telling about for ages that I really must come and try! She told me that there are more than 10 side dishes they offer and guess what? They are all FREE and refillable. Well to me, I not into Korean cuisine, but I decided to give it a try and experience the authentic food and ambience over at Kim's Family Food! There are 3 outlets in Singapore and we visited the one at 17 Lorong Kilat (near to Nooks DIY Pancakes). Address: Kim's Family Food (Korean Restaurant) 17 Lorong Kilat #01-06 Kilat Court Singapore 598139 Telephone: 6465 0535 (advised to make a reservation before you come) Entrance of Kim's Family Food  Qin Pin and Qi Man's peace twist sign photobomed this pic!  Full house okay! That's why I said you need to make a reservation before you come, if not you will be queueing outside! Btw, this is just part of the restaurant. The is restaurant is combin

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.  Hai Xian Lao  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 HX
