Design is a dish best served cool.
Busy as a bee, I could only do my shopping online this year.
That’s the case for Chinese New Year, and also for Valentine’s Day.
But as I wallowed in self pity, I realized that there are so many cool things to get online!
And it beats walking around in the crowded malls by heaps!
Check out my latest find!
I’ve tried searching for one high and low in the malls but to no avail and VOILA!
I found it here!
DINOSAUR ONESIE! <3
I love Kwerkee so much for its interesting knick-knacks, hard-to-find design pieces and everything arty farty!
If I have a place of my own, I’d want to have everything to be from Kwerkee!
Here are some of the stuff that stole my heart!
The shopping was interactive too because they have a feed tab where users can see in the real time the most popular products on the site.
And as we all know, the items come in limited pieces,
so this function is really good for kiasu people like me!
Or if I feel like sharing the deals with my friends, they have the SHARE button to link us up directly to Facebook too.
I like how the pressies always come in cute eco-friendly biodegradable boxes and paper bags too -
with phrases like “Caution: May Cause Fits Of Excitement” etc.
There is a lot to learn from Kwerkee for The Tiramisu Hero when it comes to packaging and naming their products.
Check out this one, the packaging is TOO CUTE!
These pops are actually giving away these suckers with every purchase until Valentine’s Day!
So if you’re too tied up with Chinese New Year and haven’t done your shopping for V-Day, you know where to go now. Heh!
I’d highly recommend the Facebook login for a quick signup!
There is also a referral system where you can get $30 discount when 10 of your friends join Kwerkee! :)
GO GO SHOPPING TIME! WEEE!
A and I also did up our latest distributor for The Tiramisu Hero located at NANOS BioPolis!
We were allocated a corner by the door and we did it up with the usual doodles and stuff. Heh!

It has been a fulfilling week, running errands and having sleepless nights busy with work.
I know I sound a little sadistic saying that. I’m crazy like that.
A and I met up with a programmer to discuss how we can improve The Tiramisu Hero‘s website.
Wish things could happen more quickly! I want a prettier website for our tiramisu! Heh.
It was dressed down Monday but I always loved the whole long tee + leggings getup.
Sorry ah. Showed you a bit of my thunder thighs in the picture below. Hahahaha!

It was QQ’s birthday so we hopped down to Loof to meet the birthday girl.
She looks not a day older than 22, doesn’t she?
Can’t believe she is already xx! (女人的年龄是秘密)
A looks fucking chio here. LOL!
My favourite girl and I.
Note to self: Need to trim eyebrows.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY QQ! ♥

A and I woke up bright and early the following day because it’s a BIG day for The Tiramisu Hero!
It is the first day Sir Antonio move into hic’Cup at 100am mall at Amara Hotel!
This is Sir Antonio in his draw-me-like-one-of-your-french-girls pose. Hahaha!
hic’Cup is a concept cafe where they serve both sweet and savoury crepes, as well as a whole range of interesting drinks.
Don’t expect it to be the typical coffee-or-tea kind of cafe!
I love their Asian Soup, which is better known as Cheng Tng to most of us.
I must make it a point to try their other fruity mixes the next time I’m there too! AND THE CREPES TOO!
They serve their drinks in jars like that. So cute right?
It’s near one of the main entrances of the mall so it’s really quite hard to miss!
The two mascots are really cute too! Sir Antonio’s new friends! Heh!
That’s us! Hahahaha. Small but mighty! :p
We’ll be serving our bestseller MommaHero here!
On top of that, this will also be the only distributor so far carrying our MiniHero cupcakes!
Stenciling service will also be made available here at hic’Cup!
If you are clueless about what I’m yakking on and on about,
The Tiramisu Hero is a tiramisu specialty store A and I started together some 5 months back.
We operate online and currently we have 2 distributors.
Here are their locations. (Please pardon me for the advert haha!)
I also brought A to Shunji Matsuo @ 313 to get our hair trimmed.
My hair is getting so thick at the top and is in urgent need of some loving from my stylist Caely.
I decided to just get a quick trim.
Wanna keep my hair long (by the way, I’ve been saying I wanna keep my hair long since I was 18) so wanna try to stop cutting so much.
And yay! The fringe is much lighter now. Phew!
Oh yes. I brought my boots out for another walk too.
They are from Steve Madden as I’ve previously mentioned.
There’s a sale going on now! Time to shop! :B
- – -
I also love my new top from Runway Bandits!
Maybe you can’t see it clearly from the pictures here but it’s this gorgeous white sleeveless vest.
Check out their website for more designs! They don’t get 17k LIKES on Facebook for no reason ok!
Special thanks to Swee for throwing in the scarf too! LOVE IT!
I made a turban with that! Hahahaha.
By the way, let me know if you wanna know how to do the turban (or other designs you can do with a scarf)
and I’d be glad to do a tutorial on it!
SOOO glad I finally got my brows trimmed! :p
And shoutout to Swee, I love the scarf!
I’m super thrilled about the Laneway Festival happening this Saturday at Gardens By The Bay!
Thanks to FIJI Water, I’ll be catching Bat For Lashes, Gotye, Kimbra, Kings of Convenience
and many other bands and solo acts this weekend!
A has been going on and on about Kings of Convenience since I met her,
so glad I’ll finally be able to catch them live (with A!) real soon!
Please let the weather be nice and cool this Saturday!!
If you are also interested in Laneway Festival Singapore, you can read up more about it here.
Tickets start from $145 and it’s happening 12pm onwards this Sat at The Meadow, Gardens By The Bay.

It’s the weekend again!
Not like it makes too much of a difference for me because weekends are as crazy as weekdays,
BUT weekends are always happier days because it means all my friends will not be working
and everyone around me is in a better mood. Heh!
A and I checked out our second distributor earlier this week!
It has really been quite a ride for the both of us since The Tiramisu Hero started.
Honestly, this is almost like a make-or-break thing for me.
I have always been quite a pessimistic person, always thinking about
the “what ifs” and contingency plans in case things fail.
But A has done a lot teaching me to always look at the bright side of things and think good thoughts.
I’ve been daydreaming quite a lot about the big plans and the good times ahead since I met her.
I guess it’s a good thing ya?
Our little humble The Tiramisu Hero has been around for about 5 and a half months now.
From having our company registered, getting our licensed kitchen, our first magazine feature,
securing our first distributor at Haji Lane till now,
I can see that we are gradually fulfilling our dreams, slowly but surely.
It has been a very exhausting 5 months for us.
Since the day we started this venture, we have hardly had the time for quality time together (and quality sleep)!
But we have learnt so much together and I feel really blessed that things are working out alright so far.
Just this week, we have just secured out second distributor.
I think we both did a little happy dance in our heads the moment the agreement was signed.
And with a new distributor, it means more work for us!
We spent a lot of time preparing the decorative materials we need for the shop, prepare the agreements, etc.
Here are some new doodles I did!
I think A and I make a great team – I draw the doodles and she would digitalize them and compose them into what you see.
She deserves a BIG BIG BIG BIG GOLD STAR! :D
And here it is – our new “Draw Me Like One Of Your French Girls” Sir Antonio decal in the shop!
I feel like a proud mother.
I cannot imagine the exhilaration and sense of achievement I would get if I were to own my first store one day.
I might just break down in tears and laugh hysterically at the same time! Hahaha.
For everyone who works in Tanjong Pagar area and loves tiramisu, good news for you!
The Tiramisu Hero will now be available for sales at the new mall 100am located at Amara Hotel.
It would be in this cute little concept cafe called hic’Cup (opposite Starbucks).
Do drop by and grab your little pick-me-up if you need one!
Will show you guys around the cafe when I get more pictures of the cafe! :)
Oh I took some vain outfit shots when we were doing our recee at the shop though. Hahaha!
I think A doesn’t understand why I am so vain.
And more good news!
Another Europe trip is in the pipeline!
This time round, we will be going to Paris (erm.. again), London and Amsterdam!
It would also be a double-couple trip out with Sinsin and her beau LTK!
Happening in April and I can’t wait for it any longer.
A and I sure deserve a good break and we have decided to make this our first company trip.
Flight and accommodation courtesy of Sir Antonio!
“Thank you Boss!”
I also attended Kiehl’s Blogger Event for their AMAZING Midnight Recovery Concentrate!
But before that, outfit pictures. Hurhur.
I’m wearing this super comfortable pullover from Runway Bandits!
I LOVE layering like that!
The Kiehl’s event was held at their office in Winsland House.
It was just a small cosy affair but the girls at Kiehl’s did a great job with hosting the event!
I also had a lot of fun meeting and catching up with my friends!
I got presents from Kiel’s too!
I’m already using the Midnight Recovery Concentrate currently and I love it SO much.
So happy I got another bottle, can last me a couple more months. Hahaha!
I haven’t tried the eye cream though.
Will try it real soon. I’m sure it’s gonna be as awesome as the concentrate! :D
That’s my seat in the room, right next to Bea and Valerie!
Took polaroids with the girls too!
All the many chio girlfriends. Hahaha.
My line of work rocks.
They almost looked like they were dancing but no (haha!) Valerie was the magician’s pretty assistant!
And my favourite spider girl, Tricia!
Hahaha. This actually started during the 校花校草 days where I was supposed to be the spidermom and she’s the daughter.
Can’t remember where that came from anymore. LOL.
Tricia’s looking smashing hot as usual!
And the funniest beauty blogger ever, Evonne!
Also met Tammy for the first time. Really friendly (and mad cool) chick!
Rachie from the Cambelles of course.
My ex-clubbing kaki. HAHAHAHA!
The nicest girl, Nadia!
And Fidelis and Jacelyn. :)
And of course, the lovely girls from Kiehl’s.
Thank you so much for having me at the wonderful event!
And such good products need one good photo!
This is not an ad and I’m really recommending this to anyone who wants needs a boost in their nightly skincare regime.
Good stuff must share.
If I don’t remember wrongly, Yutaki uses this too. :D
Thank you for the gift, Kiehl’s!

It has been a CRAZY weekend for The Tiramisu Hero!
A and I have been running around like mad monkeys for the last week to prepare our new corner in Grammah at Haji Lane.
YES! The Tiramisu Hero is now stocking up at Grammah at 66 Haji Lane now.
Although not all of our products will be made available there,
it is still great news for us because it means our customers now have a place to go to
if they want to grab some last minute tiramisu!
We only have a small corner in the shop but it was still sufficient to make the two of us super busy.
Partly because we decided to doodle the wall at our corner!
After some final touchups, here is the final look of our little The Tiramisu Hero corner! :D
We also did up a new menu for the shop as you can see in the pictures above.
And also decided to take a few new product pictures!
From now on, Tutti, Momma & NonnaHero will be made available at the store!
But the tiramisu sold here would only be in standard recipe.
You can still order your tiramisu online and choose to pick them up at Bartley.
Customers can also now choose to pick up their orders at Grammah on only Mondays and Thursdays.
Home delivery is still only available for direct orders through our website.
Stocks is limited at the store so do call them up at 6299 0384 before you head down.
For those who don’t really know our products, this is the MommaHero!
And MiniHero! Although it’s not available at the shop,
but I still want to show the picture because I’m very proud of the cupcake box we designed. Hahahaha!
Grammah is a vintage store that has lots of cool vintage apparels for sale.
There is also customization services to make your apparels extra unique.
On top of that, there are also many old school tidbits and snacks, sure to make you feel nostalgic!
We slept at 9am(!!!) for two days in a row before the opening day.
I hope we didn’t look too zombie on the opening day. Hahaha!
The opening day was at 3rd November, Saturday!
I also invited a couple of friends to come by and see see look look.
Jayne brought Vernon, Jasmine and her cutest nephew on earth, Jun jun!! <3
Yina and Evonne came together as well! <3
Thank you so much for coming girls! :)
Yina also gave Sir Antonio his first fan mail! :D
That’s really sweet, isn’t it! Thank you Yina!
We also saw Nich!
And my dearest Sinsin dear and LTK!
There was also a little performance outside the store and we also served some cupcakes to some of the customers that day. :)
GREAT JOB done, dear!
Let’s jiayou for The Tiramisu Hero together! :D
