NDP 2014 (Behind The Scenes with The Singapore Navy)

HAPPY 49TH BIRTHDAY, SINGAPORE

In preparation for the NDP 2014, I was invited by The Singapore Navy to join them for a day of rehearsals to have a glance of their behind-the-scenes action. We had the opportunity to ride on the (RHIB) Rigid Hull Inflatable Boat to witness their performance. I can't express how am I fortunate and lucky to be able to experience how is it like to be on a RHIB.

It was a bumpy, splashy and speedy ride! Thank you Singapore Navy for the wonderful experience! 

In case if you didn't know, I also insta-vid! 




We were also able to take a sneak peek of the behind-the-scenes operations where we can see the Army Tanks and Trucks!

Thank you Singapore Navy for the invitation! It was indeed a wonderful experience with spectacular performances and amazing fireworks!


Spot me if you can!

I got to compliment the marching contingent! You guys did an awesome job! I know how tiring the training is and also standing under the scorching hot sun for so long! I actually participated in the parade in 2010, where I was inside the NPCC Contingent! Thats why there's always something in my heart for every NDP. All the hard work definitely paid off! I truly appreciate the contingent's effort.

 I am so looking forward to next year's NDP performance because it's going to be held at the Padang and we are also going to celebrate our Nation's 50th Birthday! I'm so proud to be a Singaporean to be able to celebrate on this special occasion!
Thanks for reading!

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 -
