Have you notice the recent craze about New Balance Shoes? Honestly, my very first impression of New Balance shoes was my pair of running shoes giving to me when I got enlisted into the army and i think it wasn’t very “good-looking”. Over the years, New Balance seems to have change and i guess partially due to the kpop craze, you will noticed more people wearing New Balance shoes as the design nowadays is sooo much nicer and versatile. You can basically match it with any thing. be it casual or formal wear, shorts, berms, jeans, pants, dress for the ladies and it still looks great!

Food Review What’s the fruit that comes to your mind during summer? For me, fruits like watermelon, orange, pear and mangoes, probably because these are tropical fruits. Mangoes gotta be one of my fav fruit especially when it’s used in desserts like the famous Mango Ice (芒果冰) and the hong kong dessert (杨枝甘露). Very seldom i see it used as a main ingredients for a dish but nando’s recently introduced the Fruity Fury Peri Peri Angry Mango Burger! (wah this name damn long sia~)

I wanna introduce you guys this restaurant newly opened at chinatown point, not sure if they got other outlets anot but it’s my first time there. Secret Garden Restaurant. My first impression of the restaurant from the name was that they should be selling some kind of western food like pasta, steak etc but it’s actually a steamboat restaurant lor~ As we are having out lunch, we decided to have their lunch set menu instead of the steamboat. surprisingly the food taste not bad leh~ :D the set comes with a free drink of ur choice. This is one of the homemade tea flower tea if i remember correctly. *paiseh ah. i went for this during jan this year hahaha~
