2015


First and foremost;
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!! 

Honestly, I have to admit that 2014 was one of the best years ever, I was given ample opportunities to venture and try new things that I always wanted to attempt. Let's begin from school, as you guys know in mid-June of 2014, my team won the marketing innovation programme competition organised by North East. I am really thankful for the sponsorship of funds to run our marketing campaigns as it was our first time handling a real client. Working in a team does have it's ups and downs and I have learnt tons of new things. Learning does not rely on books but also practical learning. My team was even mentioned in Wanbao newspaper!! I'm sure, we did the school proud but lastly, I would like to thank my corporative team members that have always been by my side because I couldn't have done it without them. The increase in my blog exposure was a huge stepping stone as I joined Cineleisure Next Online Sensation 2014 and came in 2nd runner up last year. Never in my life, I would dream to have my own poster being placed at the entrance of Cathay Cineleisure Orchard. My friends started texting and whstapping me saying that they saw my poster and it was really life-sized!!! I will forever be grateful for the opportunities that God has given me. 

2015? 

I will raise my expectations for this year. I will be proceeding to a local polytechnic this year, and I'm intending to apply into SP or TP! May new beginnings bring me new friends and more skills to learn. Personally, I have set a goal to relearn my Chinese (looking back, I wished I would have studied more in my Secondary School days). Hopefully by the end of this year, I will be able to read a whole passage of a story. Secretly, I have been practicing my Chinese by singing karaoke with my friends and also watching Taiwanese drama shows! As of now, I'm making a good progress and I will continue to work harder. As for my blog, this year will be a reflection year for me. Looking back at the past few years, I must say; I'm proud of myself. I will continue to keep this blog lively and also updated! So be sure to look out for more!

Orh Nee,Yam Cake from Buttertrade

Ever since when I was little boy, whenever I attend a wedding dinner, the food item that I always anticipate the most has got to be the orh nee dessert. I mean who doesn't loves yam! So creamy yet sweet! Sometimes I wish I can find them at dessert stalls but you can rarely find them nowadays. Recently, I was greeted with an orh nee cake right at my door step thanks to Buttertrade

The cake is from Bloomsbury Bakers delivered by Buttertrade.

My internship in Japan (Niigata)

If you haven't read my previous blogposts about my overseas industrial attachment at Japan you can click on the links below: http://www.uncletehpeng.com/2014/09/exploring-niigata-japan-kite-museum.html http://www.uncletehpeng.com/2014/08/my-trip-to-japan-niigata-day-1.html''

Working in Japan is one of my greatest experience so far! The people there are so nice to communicate too and they are not only patient but very kind too. Despite the communication barrier, we were still able to translate our body language to talk to each other. The only funny thing is when we have to use Google Translate to talk to each other. Above is a picture of a huge tentage that my colleague and I built. Do note that everything including the tent sheets are made from scratch! 

I was attached to a logistics company during my internship period! The company has many years of experience in the industry thus I learnt plenty of things about administration & practical work. Japanese are very passion…

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-balance and not too sweet.
