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. 

Beef Larb Rice Bowl
Price: SGD$18.00 

This dish was inspired by the Northern Thailand cuisine. I'm sure if you have been to Thailand, you may have eaten the Basil Pork Rice. The bowl consist of minced beef cooked in a spicy lime and marinated fish sauce topped with an egg and chilli. The trick is to mix everything like how rojak is done to enjoy the this dish. 

Aburi Mentaiko Salmon  
 Price: SGD$16.00 

The Aburi Mentaiko Salmon don is one of my favourite dishes from Kara. The bowl is topped with salmon flakes, mentaiko, mayonnaise, mozzarella, furikoke and onsen egg. The dish sort of reminded me of how mac and cheese is made with a wholesome of ingredients all baked together. The dish was rich, creamy and not overpowering. Hence, I enjoyed it. 

Mac and Cheese
 Price: SGD$12.00 

Served in a decent size that can be shared amongst 3-4 people. The cheese was stretchy and delicious. 

Korean Wings
Price: SGD$13 (6 pieces) 

You should not miss out Kara's Korean Wings. The dish was recommended by their staff and was told that this dish is a popular choice amongst diners. The chicken wings were perfectly fried and did not turned out to be very greasy. The chicken skin was crispy and meat was tender and succulent. As you may know that Korean fried chicken can be served in different types of sauce. The only option they have was sweet garlic sauce. For a cafe that does not specialise in Korean food, I felt that they nailed this dish. In fact, it is way better than some of the Korean Fried Chicken restaurants I have tried in Singapore. Thus, for a decent price of $13, it is quite a good steal! I highly recommend you order it.

S’mores Sensation

Price: $12.50

Ended off the meal with a sweet treat. The smores sensation features chocolate, fluffy marshmallows that is blown torched paired with crispy graham crackers.

My experience at Gills N Shells (Lavender)

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.

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.

Taipei Day 1: Ximending 西门町

Link:  http://www.uncletehpeng.com/2015/03/taipei-day-1-ximending.html

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//www.expedia.sg 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.
