5 days in Shanghai, Hangzhou & Yiwu!!!

Hello! I'm FINALLY going to blog about my trip to China which took place a year back! I was too lazy to edit my photos because I took over 500 photos on my phone (k nuff said)! I initially wanted to split the blogpost into (day 1, day 2 etc) but decided to just combine everything into one blogpost so it's easier for you guys to read! Oh yea, didn't went there for a holiday but it was for a school assignment! 

The main objective of this trip was to visit the famous wholesale market at Yiwu.You could really get a lot of cheap stuffs over there such as stationeries, accessories, clothes, toys, electronics etc. They have almost everything there, thus my task was to visit the wholesale market can get something back to Singapore to sell and then do a short presentation. My itinerary was rather simple I say because almost 40% of my time was spent on traveling alone! We needed to stopover at Shanghai on the first day and then take a 3 hour bus ride on the coach to Yiwu (meanwhile stop over at Hangzhou to visit their famous lake.) on the second day. The third day was to complete our business assignment and then head back to Shanghai for shopping and sight seeing! 


I just realized I have the most crappiest fringe ever. Hahaha!


All ready to visit China for the first time! #eggcited








Settled down at a Vegetarian Restaurant on Day 2 (was traveling to Yiwu) Stopped over at Hangzhou for sightseeing.

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!

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 -
