Looks like getting a new camera IS a right choice.
I’ve been transformed into a brand new camwhore who would whip out my camera almost every hour.
I bought the Samsung MV9000 from Gmarket and it’s only at $320!
(The price I got from Sim Lim Square was $417, so that’s really quite a steal!)
It comes with a flip up screen and has inbuilt wifi so I can transfer pictures from the camera to my phone ANYWHERE,
even when I’m at a place with no wifi connection!
OK, enough of my boring gadget talk.
I’m also loving my new gelish manicure from Juup!
It has got to be my favourite nail salon of all times.
Apart from the hot tea and cookies and chocolates they give me once I settled down,
I get to watch movies as I’m getting my nails done!
How awesome is that!
I did the gelish in a glittery dark grey this time round because my previous colour done by the was of a lighter shade.
Time for a change! :D
Lunch was at FIKA located at the junction of Arab Street and Beach Road!
I have been to this Swedish cafe once but I didn’t get to try the mains the last time I was there.
So A and I took the chance to try out some of their food this time round!
The cafe was pretty spacious, clean and white!
It is a halal cafe owned and operated by muslims (that’s what they said on their website).
So muslim friends, another place to go to if you’re at Haji Lane area!
When I think of Swedish food, the first place that comes to mind is IKEA.
So naturally, we compared the meatballs A ordered with the ones served at IKEA.
A commented that the meatballs at Fika tasted very “meaty”, so if you’re a hardcore carnivore, it might suit you!
The service at Fika was a little disappointing though. Hmm.
The Aglio Olio I had was not bad though, but I think it can be a little spicier.
But they give you the opportunity to pick what you want in the pasta, so I picked shrimps for mine!
I LOVE the cold fresh milk with cinnamon though. SO GOOD! Yums.
This was the best A could do when I asked her to look at me lovingly.
Food all cleaned up!
If you’re interested to check out Fika at your next cafe hopping trip, here are some information you might need!
We toured around the area after getting some stocks and we found this really cute vintage store tucked in a corner!
This store has a really cute name called Roccoco Kent and
the owner of the store is really friendly too.
Here are some pictures to give you a little virtual tour around the shop!
Here we go!
There is a little outdoor area with all the cutest things you can possibly think of!
If you would also like to pay Roccoco Kent a visit the next time you around the area, here’s their address.
The main entrance to the shop is a little inconspicuous though, so do look out for this sign when you’re in the area!
And just something random we saw on our way home.
The Prata People On the Way To A Prata Party.
Till next time, time for a prata party! <3
