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.

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 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 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-ba

Top 10 Cheap and Affordable Places for Students to eat in Singapore

Most of the time during lecture, my friends and I would be in class whatsapping each other in our own personal group chat discussing about what should we eat after school. (Don't bluff, I bet you done it before too). Usually, we will not be able to think of a location to settle down hence we will end up searching online. Over the entire year, my clique and I have been hopping around places to find the best spot to eat and I have successfully list up some of my top places that we usually will hang out after school. Of course, being students (if you work or not work part-time), we will always be on budget constraint and do not want to spend a lot in a meal. After months of exploration, I would like to recommend some places (you might have been too or might not) that you will probably want to visit with your friends one day! What we usually look out for: 1. Places you can sit and chit-chat for more than 1 hour 2. Pocket-friendly prices (preferably below $25, ranging from $5.50 -
