One of the main objective or the places that i wanted to visit for this Penang trip of mine was the infamous Street Art located around Georgetown ;) All these beautifully executed wall paints and murals at selected streets of George Town, Penang was by this young Lithuania-born artist, Ernest Zacharevic.
The second day of the trip, we booked the cab driver from the hotel for a half day tour around Penang. It’s so much convenient and you don’t have to worry about how to travel from one place to the other. The whole tour lasted for about 6 hours and we started off at 9am in the morning, with the temples as our first destination.
The Small and Medium Enterprise Association (SMEA) under Taiwan’s Ministry of Economic Affairs is organizing a Taiwan Fair in Singapore for the first time to showcase the best products. Based on the theme of “Tea Time in Taiwan”, the SMEA has selected top quality food, tea and ceramics makers to participate at this Fair. The production and quality of Taiwan products are a reflection of our local customs and cultural diversity. As such, through this Fair, we hope that Singaporeans can understand and appreciate Taiwan’s cultural heritage, our values and our lives as they enjoy the various teas, confectionery and ceramics at this event.
Its always good to go for a short getaway, away from work and I need one to BREATHE and relax myself. An impromptu decision was made at a cafe some time back and since there’s a nice hotel with good promo and cheap tickets from air asia, we booked this trip, immediately.
Cafe Hopping Time! There’s something special about this cafe that we’ve visited a few weeks ago. It’s a simple cafe with very simple decor and seriously, if i were to walk pass the cafe, i wouldn’t have notice it. From the exterior, it looks like a warehouse to me. I even have difficulty locating the door to enter lor! hahaha~
Advertorial I was kinda sad when i know that RIVER ISLAND closes down at ION as it’s one of my favourite fashion apparels brand which i visit frequently to shop and to get fashion styling tips and inspiration. I still remember working on a collaboration with them when they were still around. BUT!! woohoo~~~ I’m so happy that RIVER ISLAND is back in Singapore once again and thanks to ZALORA for bringing them back here! Now i can even do shopping wherever and whenever i want on the go with the ZALORA mobile app too! AWESOME! Let’s check out what they have in-”online”store!
Finally after so long, i’ve managed to get these images done and up here. It’s been 2 months and i’m sure the memories i had with my colleagues will always be with me. This phuket trip marks the last overseas trip i’ll have with my previous company. Now. enough said, enjoy the photos!
Tamoya Udon is located at the basement of chinatown point, very near to the escalator and entrance of Uniqlo. Was looking for a place to have my dinner with mr c a few months ago, yes too busy to blog lately! :X and he told me that he tried this when he was in Japan before and would like to see how it fair here in Singapore. Just a brief intro, Tamoya was established in the home on udon, Sanuki (now known as Kagawa) prefecture in 1996 by Sanuki udon champion, Tamotsu Kurokawa Here’s how to go about ordering your food. First you choose the type of udon that you want. Personally i prefer the Kake.
Advertorial Have you ever thought of this? What would you do if you are a millionaire? I would love to travel all i want with that money, buy things that i’ve always wanted to get, give my friend and loved ones a well deserved treats and lastly donate some for the charity. BUT hor.. i notice that there is nothing that i can keep or see physically leh~ SO… i think buying a property will be a GOOD idea right?! and the best option to get will be…. A CONDO!!!
[台北演唱会初体验CONCERT IN TAIPEI!] series is coming to an end, and in case if you are wondering why you don’t see any concert related entries in this series, no worry as i will be posting them up soon. Stay Real cafe is located in dong qu where there’s alot of nice boutique shops which is very similar to our haji lane here in singapore. You might be able to find cheap deals but at the same time, you might be leave empty handed too haha~
鼎泰丰Ding Tai Fung, where everyone go for their infamous Xiao Long Bao, originated from Taiwan and since i’m there, and upon hearing from friends on how good it is in taiwan, we decided to try it there! The outlet we visited is located at Tien Mu SOGO and initially i thought it wouldn’t be crowded since its a weekend morning at 11am, but was surprise that the queue is super long lor!
Not sure if you have the same feeling as me, i noticed that there isn’t alot of places that you can go to for breakfast in taipei, or probably at ximending (maybe there are other nice places for breakfast but yet to explore them out), 永和豆漿 Yong He Breakfast Shop is one that i will always go to whenever i visit taipei :)
June was one of the month that im looking forward to as i’m finally flying off once again on a holiday since my last trip in sept last year. Other than that, it’s also the first time i’m heading to Taipei to catch my favourite group S.H.E comeback concert and most importantly with my ambloves! :D In this entry, i’m introducing you VIA HOTEL that we stayed at. It’s a pretty new hotel located in the heart of Xi Men Ding and it’s actually quite good leh! Here’s my room throughout the stay :)
I’ve heard about reviews of this place but i’ve yet to visit as i don’t drive and it’s quite inaccessible in some ways. But luckily i managed to visit this place on a Saturday afternoon a few weeks ago as this friend of mine, i shall call him KT, drives ;) Really love the ambient of the restaurant as they are set up with very vintage and retro looking items. At the first glance, you would thought that they are selling vintage furniture instead of food hahaha~
After attending Aaron Yan 炎亞綸The Moment 音樂派對 Music Party, go read if you’ve not, i went for the autograph session the following day (partially also because we needa help out in the event) and here’s some pictures and videos that i’ve taken for you fans out there! :P The anticipating crowd which’ve been queuing up since morning under the killer sun… It’s SOO freaking hot and sunny that day~!!
