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).

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 combined by 2 shops. Another part of the restaurant is next door.

What's so special about restaurant? If you have a marker with you, you can draw on their walls freely.

Table setting! I always have difficulties using korean chopsticks!

Many various and different kinds of food you can choose. From rice cake - hot pots and set meals! To be honest, the price is a bit high, but it's best to come with a group of 3-4 then split the amount then it will be worth it. #typcialsingaporean 

These were the 12 different side dishes, I was referring too! They are free and refillable! 

I cannot tahan the spicy kimichi!

Price: $14.00 

This Korean pancake dish does not look like a pancake but rather resembles "Orh Jian", or fired oyster.  (Local dish) Made of flour, eggs and spring onion, this dish may be a little bit oily but it has a chewy texture that brings out the flavour. Though very simple looking, it's deliciousness really makes you want to go back for another bite. It's definitely worth the $14!!! 

Ps: This pancake is a good way to make me eat vegetables cause I try to avoid them whenever I can! HAHAHAHAHAH!! 

9.5/10 *thumbs up*


After (Max out the spiciness) 

Price: $35.00

This dish is served in a big portion and can be share among 3-4 people (perhaps even more since my friends and I couldn't finish it!) The main base of the dish is maggi noodles and it is generously topped with ingredients like tofu, sausages, prawns, cucumbers, luncheon meat and dumplings. For your information, there is a special story behind this dish. During the war times in the past, people would take leftover food and ingredients and mix them all together and voila!!! - Thus the invention of such dish that became popular even till today. Do note that the dish is a SPICY FOOD (cannot tahan!) Overall, I think it is worth spending $35 on this dish where friends can mingle and bond over such simplicity yet deliciousness!


After dinner, we borrowed markers for the waiter and wrote something on the wall to leave it as a memory that we have been to this restaurant. It was fun but kinda wrong doing it.. hahaha

Hahahaha I wonder who wrote this ._.

Wrote my blog link here! Hope they will remember me. I feel so bad writing on people's trademark! Hahaha! 

Overall, it was a awesome experience at Kim's Family Food, very good food but service wise it was kinda slow because they don't have enough staff. It's definitely a place to dine if you wanna have a real authentic Korean dishes!

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


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// 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.
