i’m not Vegan but this vegan cafe could be my next thing!

Hello everyone!

it has been a long time since i wrote something here and i am here to tell you guys regarding the new Vegan cafe located at Novena!

It is called The Real food

20141226_170420_Richtone(HDR)

Now i am no Vegan, lets get that straight. I love food and i love my meat but sometimes we have those moments where we eat too much meat or unhealthy stuff and we feel horrbile and decide it is time for a clean diet or something minus the meat and what perfect way it is then to go Vegan for the day!

Now this place has a cat cafe vibe going and i am not kidding.

20141226_170331_Richtone(HDR)

See all them shelves? Perfect for a cat cafe for cats to climb out of reach to go anywhere and everywhere especially to escape from the human grabby hands!

Now The Real Food serves Ice cream, main dishes, appetizers and a wide range of drinks which all of them are made from Organic ingredients and this cafe is 100% Vegan or so they say.

Now while looking through the menu, i do believe they are slightly on an average cafe pricing so that ranges from like $8 till $14 depending what you order.

Now for pictures galore!

20141226_170237_Richtone(HDR) 20141226_171009_Richtone(HDR)

Ice cream were priced at $4 and this is chocolate which tasted more like dark chocolate and Hazelnut. Museli was an additional $1

20141226_171259_Richtone(HDR) 20141226_171349_Richtone(HDR)

Now what interest me was their Decor. The had this lamp with a lot of paper which has words and drawing on it as their lamp and the shelves were filled with this bags which was nice and yellow and very structured which got a thumbs up from me cause they looked cool!

20141226_170256_Richtone(HDR) 20141226_170347_Richtone(HDR)

What i love about the decor is that it is very relaxed and it is not overall cluttered unless you are in the shop itself because they have a variety of products for sale!

So to me, it really is the perfect place to chill and feel healthy because everything is not only organic, Vegan but it is easy on the eyes with the wide spaces and interesting decor!

Now you can find them at

the real food

Have fun and be Vegan for a day!

Toodles dee you guys!

DID TAKA CUT HIS HAIR?

Hello pumpkins!

For those who don’t know ( and probably because i never told anyone ), i am a HUGGGEEEEE fan of OK ONE ROCK ( A Japanese rock band)

And i just found out that they had released a single like 3 months back called “Mighty long fall”

aw yesss!

Anyway lets get straight into it!

So clicky click and enjoy the music!

When i first watch this, i literally wanted to jump out of my seat and hug the shit out of Taka ( Lead Singer)! He is super adorable with his new haircut!!

Credits: Where else but tumblr yo~

And if you guys did watch the video and watch Japanese anime ( NON HENTAI ONE PLEASEEE)

Well to me, the video seemed like a song for Attack on Titan because …

well i can’t really explain it unless you have watched the anime and you’ll probably understand what i am talking about.

and i am sure them boys have instagram because i have found and the stalking shall commence!

Anyway,

go ahead and listen alright,

toodle dee you guys!

Ah, there goes the Korean idol and his cosmetic line

i have a face clay mask actually on while writing this because today is all about BEAUTY BEAUTY

YAY FOR BEAUTY!

We, humans are always chasing after beauty because we all crave for that perfection and especially when you are me, you are still chasing that and always trying new product which gives your skin the most benefit because we only have one face unless you redo the whole face with surgery,

not sure if it would be counted as 2 face or 1 face because its a lil weird,

you have a face but you changed your face so does that mean you have 2 face/ 2 looks or just 1?

BUT ANYWAY,

Have you guys ever heard of this Korean Cosmetic brand INNISFREE?

If you haven’t, this is your lucky day!

i know there is many Korean brands out there and it really is a lot but they are my current favorite because it is a nature brand that shares the benefits of nature from the pristine island of Jeju and pursues an eco-friendly green life to preserve the balance of nature ( i actually got this from their website and all i understood was natural brand, eco life and awesome products)

i honestly believe that natural product or product containing more natural ingredients are better for your skin because more chemical = the more your skin becomes sensitive and when that happens, you are screwed but your skin looks angry being red all over and it makes you lose confidence which is a sad thing so i am here to help! ( Well hopefully i can)

Now my skin type is Sensitive and dry and to me, the key in knowing what product to look at is knowing your own skin type so i urge everyone to know your skin inside out because it is very important.

So the current ambassador for the brand is Yoona from SNSD and Lee Minho, the pretty boy actor.

I actually like lee minho because he has a pretty smile but i don’t really watch his dramas, the role he plays are the usual rich kids and it get very repeated and predictable but he is a good actor but i like his smile more,

MOVING ONNNNN,

Singapore has like 2 or 3 innisfree store and i happened to chance upon the one at Dhoby Ghaut and i was over the moon because i am a fan of Korean cosmetic and because i love the brand so i went a little wow and bought a number of stuff.

20140613_055936

I had gotten the volcanic pore scrub, volcanic pore strips, anti trouble cream, green tea mask, gel eyeliner and i had gotten the pore kit as a gift for spending along with the hanky,

20140612_204055 20140612_204101

This is the volcanic pore scrub and i really like this because i feel that it cleans your face really well and your skin really feels fresh afterwards but they are not as effective because the scrubs are foamed up and they do clean well but not as well as those coarse scrubs.

20140612_211816 20140612_211827

This has to be one of my most favourite! It really is good and it has these tightening/ slightly heaty or some might say cooling factor and i would actually recommend this to anyone who likes to use pore strips.

20140613_060026

I actually though this lotion would actually prevent pimple but not really however it does give off a wonderful cooling sensation which makes your skin much calmer and less angry especially for those with sensitive skin like mine. It is good for putting on a night when you feel that your skin feels upset and needs a little pick me up, by all  means, get this!

20140613_055434

This is like the whole Volcanic pore series trial kit and i highly recommend this line because it really works. I own their scrub, their toner which is my absolute favorite and their clay mask which is amazing! I do not own their essence and the normal clay mask because i picked the deep cleansing one and i am clueless how to use the essence.

So anyone with pore trouble, i highly, totally recommend this series.

In Singapore, this line is pretty popular because it seems often to be out of stock because it works but some might find it pricey and alternatively, you can try get it from someone who is going to Korea or online Korean shops that sells the product at a cheaper rate but be warn, the shipping is a bomb so you might want to gather a few friends to buy it together,

20140613_055609 20140613_055531

So that sums up my Innisfree beauty buy however there is more to come!

toodlee dee for now you guys!,

// Current read

The strange and beautiful sorrow of Ava Lavender by Leslye walton

Magical realism, lyrical prose, and the pain and passion of human love haunt this hypnotic generational saga.

Foolish love appears to be the Roux family birthright, an ominous forecast for its most recent progeny, Ava Lavender. Ava—in all other ways a normal girl—is born with the wings of a bird.

In a quest to understand her peculiar disposition and a growing desire to fit in with her peers, sixteen-year old Ava ventures into the wider world, ill-prepared for what she might discover and naïve to the twisted motives of others. Others like the pious Nathaniel Sorrows, who mistakes Ava for an angel and whose obsession with her grows until the night of the Summer Solstice celebration.

That night, the skies open up, rain and feathers fill the air, and Ava’s quest and her family’s saga build to a devastating crescendo.

First-time author Leslye Walton has constructed a layered and unforgettable mythology of what it means to be born with hearts that are tragically, exquisitely human

http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/18166936-the-strange-and-beautiful-sorrows-of-ava-lavender

So i headed to the Library today after a session of grocery shopping and fell in look with this book at first sight, the colour is beautiful and i love the back of the book!

shall do a review when i am done with this book,

toodle dee for now pumpkins,

Xoxo,

OH GOD WHYYY.

SPNG Tags: Crowley / Hello / darling / you’re looking rather British today / A special thanks to mishamigominion for submitting this! Looking for a particular Supernatural reaction gif? This blog organizes them so you don’t have to spend hours hunting them down.

sorry for the super long MIA. 

I am actually on intern right now and the work life is really really routine. Doing the same things over and over again and honestly, i haven’t had any social life since i started my intern. I go to work then straight away go home because i am mentally drained and i don’t wish to stay longer. 

And in Singapore, right now IT IS A SATURDAY! And i spent my weekends lazying around and finally catching up on my Supernatural tv series and i had just finished the last episode of the season and my verdict, I KNEW IT, I FUCKING KNEW IT! I KNEW IT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN! DAMN CROWLEY. 

so for those who follow the series like me, it is intense. The last episode was super intense and it was so good although my heart was breaking when god -wannabe metatron stabbed Dean

image

and when Sam was trying to save Dean after he was stabbed. It was emotional because ever since the start of Season 9, both Sam and Dean have been in less desirable position and been bickering at each other but to see Sam trying his best to save dean and Dean telling him “I am proud of us “, you begin to realize, family is still family. No matter how many times you screw up, they are still there to catch you like Sam and Dean. No matter how much they fight and hate each other, they still deeply care for one another. 

And this is how i felt like for both scenes, 

image

But  when it reached to the ending, i can’t say i was surprised, somehow to me, it was kinda expected seeing how much Crowley likes dean, it was bound to happen. I mean we all know how shady Crowley is and how he didn’t tell dean the full story about Cain and the Mark itself and what it does but you have to give this man credit for his probably most inspiring monologue. 

 

He might not be a liar but he is def a sneaky little bastard and a charming one at that and i think the greatest omg factor would be now that dean is a knight from hell ( well, i am guess he took the place of Cain ), what will happen to dean and Sam? Will Sam hunt Dean now? What about Castial and Dean? I mean, i ship both of them as much as i ship Dean and Crowley but this is getting complicated and what if they are following the story about Cain and Abel? Now, i am a Muslim so i know nothing about it apart from the explanation from the show and what if dean is Cain and Sam is Abel? Does this mean Dean is going to kill mas just to save him? 

Oh god, so many question and what about castial? Season 10 is only going to premier in OCTOBER 10. 

And for those of you who says ” ITS JUST A SHOW, WHY ARE YOU SO EMOTIONAL ” 

well the thing is, even if the show is only one or two season or maybe as much as supernatural which is currently in the end of its 9th season, it becomes a second nature to you. It becomes your escape, your ecstasy. When we watch this shows, they become a part of us because we dedicated all those time watching it, feeling what they feel. There is a connection there and i know this might be hard to understand for those who don’t understand this fandom life and i don’t blame you guys. Everyone has a different escape and this is just ours. 

so i’ll end by post here and have a great weekend you guys!

xoxo

long story short

Hi guys, 

i know i haven’t blog in like a while and yes my exams were over so technically i had more free time but 

Hari raya was coming so i had alot of chores to do and i have been sick for more than a week now. 

sounds more like excuses right but do not worry, every single time i feel a need to blog and i have a topic in mind, i usually scribble it down on my handy dandy notebook! doesn’t that remind you of blues clues? 

 

I totally grew up watching this show and yeah, i liked it and it honestly believe blue was a boy until someone told me it was a girl. 

MINDBLOWN!

anyway here is the list i came up with 

Image

 

so yeah, long story short, i got my list all ready and you can expect to see more rants! hehe! 

love you guys and thank you for being patient!

Ramadan day 10, 11, 12

Hello my lovely amazing readers, i know i have been lacking in a lot of post lately and i am really sorry but exams were around the corner but it has ended and i have more time now (YAY!) and school is tiring me out as well as fasting.  Forgive me will you?

anyway for the next 3 ramadan days i am about to write, i will mainly put them in point form because i can’t really remember what happened and i have soo many things i want to share with you guys about this week!

so let’s start off with friday, ramadan day 10

so i skipped class again because i wasn’t feeling well and went for Judo only, it was fun because we had randori (open mat ) and some funny things happened like during randori, we normally switch partners so meaning i went through like 3 rounds of it and basically today was more physical training and they did tyre flipping while i couldn’t do because of my in juried shoulder so randori made me feel  better and what was funny was when me and corriene spar, we both kept head butting each other because we were the same height and we couldn’t see our legs because everything looked like a white blur but she managed to win me because she knew how to do the techniques while i was still struggling. After training, i was happy till i checked my phone and i felt so low suddenly, it was my cousin’s 7th death month anniversary and i felt like crying because i missed her and i decided to go home first. One of the nicest thing was my eyecandy actually asked if i was okay and i had to lie and say yes because i wasn’t ready to tell people why. Called Ikha and we talked taking my mind off things. Went to buy cat food and dad called asking if i wanted to go my auntie’s place which i said yes and hurried home, bath and changed and waited for my parents to picked me up. It was then that i realized i couldn’t put my right foot down properly and limped and my wrist started hurting me like crazy, i literally couldn’t twist it. ANDDDDDD i saw pretty boy when i wanted to change and oh my god, i miss him and if it wasn’t the fasting month, i would have hugged the living day light out of him but too bad it was!

image

went to my auntie places and had a chill out session while hearing my parents and aunt talk about their day in malacca!

Now onto day day 11~

I went to my dad’s side for iftar! Like finally because all this while it has always been my mom’s side and it was good seeing my cousins.

Now what is iftar?

Iftar is basically when we all get together and break fast together.

It is really fun especially with your cousins who you haven’t seen in a long time or with your friends!

The one thing that i enjoy during iftar with extended family is the dining table will be filled with all kind of food! From noodles to rice to dessert to even starters like porridge. Its like after a 12 hour fast, coming to a place and seeing the table filled with food kinda makes you feel grateful for all the things you have in life. Like I’ve heard some families in my country or other country that only have dates or porridge or even less than that to break fast with and it’s saddening and it also makes you more grateful for what god have given you and you start to cherish things more like for this year,i don’t get to breakfast with my family often because i have training on 2 days and on weekends, sometimes i help my friend at her baking job. Out of 7 days, i can only manage to break fast with my parents for like 3-4 days only and of course my parents have their own things to do and time is limited but  when you get to sit at the table with your family and extended family, you start cherishing more and you really realized how blessed you are to always have food on the table. The day ended well and on a happy note because everyone ‘s tummy was filled and we completed our prayers together.

now day 12 was finally a stay home sunday!

I just love stay home sunday because i get to stay home and be in my PJ for at least half of the day and sleep in! That right there is alrd a blissful life. SO since it was stay home sunday and my mom had to work, i managed to help my mom clean part of the house and was exhausted by the time she came home. We then decided what to eat while my father headed back to sleep because he works the night shift and it tires him out like alot . SO me and my mom were talking about what to eat when i kept telling her to just order mac or KFC and my mom went like ” NO! I am home and for that we shall cook ” .

I dread hearing those words because i have to help but i wont be helping her cook, instead i would be washing the dishes and hearing her nag or sing some oldies song which to her ” Makes the cooking taste nicer ” well who could argue with a mother’s logic right?

So she ended up cooking PASTA! Like finally! I prefer my mom’s pasta over mine because it has the spicy asian flavour in it and mom’s cooking is always yummier than anyone else cooking 🙂

well she lose out to my aunt in terms of tom yam and to my grandpa in terms of chili crab and to my grandma in term of sambal goreng but doesn’t mean i love her cooking any much less.

So thats all for now you guys, nothing much happened on stay home sunday because after we ate and did our prayers, everyone just became a fat cat and laze around.

Love you guys!

xoxo

Ramadan day 6

Can you believe it! It has already been 6 days of fasting! 

this is awesome! 

Anyway i skipped school on day 6 because i was so tired and i could barely concentrate on anything. So i met Bayu and headed off to the library to study which i ended up watching roll Models which was awesome and i loveeee gine darling and scarlet chan! She is so entertaining and Go GO dancers are so pretty! 

This is scarlet chan and she is packed with attitude and she is very highly entertaining! Gotta love her! 

and this is miss gina darling! She is awesome! She has a pet snake, she is a gamer and she is totally cool! Love her the most! 

Actually before this show, i had no idea what a Go Go model is or what is an import model and the show taught me those terms!

Anyway moving on, i did grocery shopping and ended up buying this at delifrance!

YES, I GOT MACAROONS! 

There were so yummy and i’ll do a review on them in the next post 🙂 

anyway, went home and cleaned the house a bit before heading for a nap. I was expecting my mom to call because she called earlier and said we were suppose to break fast at my dad’s side, my auntie’s place but she didn’t called and i fell asleep until it was nearly break fast time and laid out on the couch watching tv while waiting for my mom and she didn’t even call or anything and when she finally did, she asked me why didn’t i pick up her call which i responded saying there was none and she said she called the house but no one picked up the phone. I told her i was sleeping and she asked why i couldn’t answer the phone again. 

image

i didn’t answer her and asked her where she was and she told me she was coming home soon and i waited infront of the tv rotting while trying to fix my laptop. It as giving me issue’s by not wanting to connect to my house wi-fi. It was majorly anoying becauseit could conenct to my Hotspot but not my house wi-fi. I got so stressed and i just used my phone through the whole day. 

Well that was pretty much what happened! 

Love you guys, 

xoxo! 

Ramadan day 4& 5

So Ramadan day 4 & 5 fell on the weekend! Thank god! 

Now my weekends were pretty chill, nothing much was going on except on both days, me and my friend went out to breakfast with my auntie and her family. 

Like on the 4th, we went to breakfast outside and went straight home after that as my mom wasn’t feeling well even though my cousin asked us along to go Vivo city because she wanted to do a bit of shopping before her new job on Monday but my family went home as all of us were pretty sick. 

On the morning of the 5th day of ramadan, i woke up to thisImage

 

Image

 

He basically took half of my leg space but i couldn’t get mad at him because he looked so cute and peaceful sleeping like that!

Later in the afternoon, my auntie decided to cook and invited the whole family over which would include my grandparents, my family, my uncle’s family and her oldest son’s family as he was the only one that is married in her family. 

Family gathering is always fun! I mean Family is always going to be number 1 because there are always going to be there when everyone else is going to leave you. You’re family in a way is your support system, your pillar and perhaps the strongest one out there. 

And i know sometimes people might say ” So what? Family can leave each other! ” and i agree, even though you guys are family, we are all human, we have human emotions and we will do things that could hurt one another but trust me when i say even if your family member turn against you or leave you, they did it because they had too and it isn’t easy for them. They will constantly think about you and will always pray for the best for you. They do want to see you happy and successful and sometimes when they leave you, they want you to stand on your own two feet and go against the world, sometimes, they need you to see a lesson in life that you have been missing out. I know this feeling all too well because i was ever put in that position. 

I will and forever will send a prayer for him and hope god protects him and lead him to a better path. He was too pampered because he knew he could fall back on us any time and started getting lazy and got arrogant. This was when we had to turn away from him and let life teach him a lesson. 

You can’t reach the top or be a better person if you are too arrogant. You need those around you to teach you the lessons in life that hopefully will help you and make you a better person and this was my only intention when i turned away from him and my mom and dad always had him in their prayers and he doesn’t even know that. He believe we don’t love him and left him to suffer but no, we could never do that. 

anyway till here my lovely readers, 

xoxo 

and please, take good care of yourselves! 😀
