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

2013 started with a kickass lobster from Four Seasons Hotel.
It’s brunch with the girlies at Four Seasons Hotel! <3
Food glorious food! Yums yums for my tums tums!
Look at my main!
This freaking lobster is bigger than my forearm! *gasps*
And my favourite friends in the world!
Including the latest member of our sisterhood, no I mean.. auntiehood. Heh!
We love Baby Rykiel!
More photos with the girls!
Rossie looks so pretty here!!!
Most chio Mommy of the year award. Hehehe!
Baby looks so funny here. Heh!
I love my girlfriends! Another awesome year ahead!
And dear A, thank you for the love for the ENTIRE 2012!
I want many many more awesome years with you!
I also coloured my hair again at Shunji Matsuo 313.
Decided to going back to having a more normal colour and look less K-Pop. Hahaha!
The fringe is getting really long and unruly but I’m torn between getting them trimmed and keeping them long.
I also took my unruly black hair to this really cute cafe called The Lawn!
I’m wearing my lovely bright yellow blazer from Runway Bandits!
So so in love with their clothes, almost everything is up my alley and it’s hard to shop within a budget at Runway Bandits.

Love the simple and cute moustache watch from DamselindisDress!
A and I both have one each! Wee!
The Lawn is a like a breath of fresh air tucked away in a small corner at Biopolis.
I used to work around Science Park Drive area and if I had known there are such cute cafes around in Biopolis,
I would fly there for lunches! :o
It is a a grill and salad bar that sells some really awesome and VALUE-FOR-MONEY food!
A gourmet coffee that is typically $5-$6 in regular cafe is only going at $3ish here.
They serve some imported beers too – up my alley. Hahaha!
For carnivores and people-who-live-to-eat-carbs (like yours truly),
you can also pick the healthy olive rice instead of greens for your main.
You may choose toppings to go with your rice or greens!
Free stickers too! Is love. Haha!
If you are thinking salad is boring and unappetizing, check this out man!
Just take a look at the generous serving of grilled prawns!
I picked rice because I cannot live with proper carbs in my meal, but it still came with a healthy salad.
I chose the citrus topping for my salad which turned out to be really good.
The grilled dory was divine too!
If I am already making you swallow your saliva vigorously as you read my entry,
then don’t forget to check out The Lawn at Biopolis.
And if you work in the vicinity of Biopolis, there is no reason why you shouldn’t try this adorable cafe out!
And before I go, I shall end this post with pictures of our supermodel puss. Heh!
Have a great week ahead!

I met the girls for dinner and an early birthday celebration earlier this week.
We had a simple dinner and get-together at Dean & Deluca at Orchard Central.
Lianie told us about this place and I really love it!
Clean and bright with a lovely decor.
But it was really crowded when we were there and we had to queue for food!
The service wasn’t exactly very fast too. Oh well, but I have to admit the food was damn good.
I LOVE THE SCRAMBLED EGGS!
These are the table number cards you have to bring along before you order food at the counter.
Coffee machine midgets.
We shared our food and didn’t order too much.
The food we ordered was totally fab though!
These pictures don’t do the food justice at all! Really yummy!
I brought some NonnaHero from The Tiramisu Hero for them to bring back to their families too!
Lianie couldn’t resist the tiramisu though, she started digging in on the spot. :p
Thanks for the support girls!
The girls also bought a small cake for me!
I hate it that we are all so busy with our own lives and work, I wish I have more more more time with them!
Thank you so much for taking time off to always meet for dinners and what not, girls! <3
And thanks for the early birthday celebration.
Thanks for the lovely evening friends! :D
I also attended Dove’s Bloggers Party at Full House in Rendezvous Hotel.
Everyone was dressed in white and it looked really pretty in pictures!
I made some old friends and made some new ones! :)
It was a really nice chance to catch up with the fellow bloggers.
Big thanks to Dove for the invitation too! <3
Sometimes I feel really old. Haha. And damn, the birthday is coming.

I am thrilled about this place the moment I heard about it.
And I have to thank Cheryl for such a great recommendation!
For those of you who doesn’t know yet, Kombi is actually the name of this type of vehicle shown in the banner above.
One of the prettiest designs from Volkswagen, if you ask me!
Kombi Rocks is not just any other cute cafe!
Other than the “Diner” branch, they also have the “Rides” branch where they have cute vintage vehicles for hire.
Whether you’re planning for a photoshoot, wedding or just for a joyride, you can get them!
Imagine a wedding with such a cute ride, too cute.
That’s us on our way to Kombi Rocks!
It’s situated on Yio Chu Kang Road, nearer to the Serangoon side.
That’s really close to A’s place and we are thrilled to have discovered another cute cafe to hang out at near home. :)
[Yes we bought those old school snacks to eat. WE LOVE!]
It is hard to miss this place.
There would always be a couple eye-catching classic vintage rides parked at its doorstep.
We were here for a late lunch so we were the only table there.
Look at that cute light pink Kombi parked just outside the cafe! Cute right!
We also saw this absolutely gorgeous Porsche (we found out that its the owner’s ride after chatting with the boss).
The menu looks pretty old school too.
And A is looking funky here. Hahaha!
After reading up more about the background of Kombi Rocks (the history of the place is included at the back of the menu),
we found out that it started out as Koon Kee Restaurant which was started in 1971.
I looked around at the interiors of the diner and YES, it does look like an old school kopitiam-style
restaurant if you minus all the posters, funky decors and vintage vehicles littered all around the place.
The retro coffee tables, tiles, barber chairs, old clocks and floor designs, reminds me of the old Singapore in the 70s/80s.
The owners of the diner must be huge fan of music and automobiles.
See the next few pictures and you will know why I said that!
I like this blind spot mirror shot. You can pretty much see the entire shop from here!
Look at the kopitiam style coffee table and chairs and old school floor tiles!
Owners are probably huge Beatles fans too! :D
I also spotted a SUPER cute pay phone tucked in a corner of the diner.
Why are pay phones now not as cute anymore?
I think the main customers for the hire of rides came from weddings.
There are a lot of wedding-related stuff in the diner.
Look at this!
Isn’t that what people used to do when they get married?
Drive away from the church in a cute Volkswagen Beetle with cans dragging behind the car saying “JUST MARRIED”?
Anyways, is it even legal to drag cans on the roads in Singapore? Heh.
There is also a little “Retail Section” at the back of the diner where you can pick up old memorabilia.
The “well not everything” looks like it’s added in later. Hahaha!
Someone must have attempted to buy something weird from the shop. :p
A and I picked a seat outdoors near the entrance of the diner.
I love the barber chairs they have in the diner!
We are sitting next to two barber chairs and the table is made from an old sewing machine.
The view from my seat.
The very pretty tiles on the table.
Even the owners’ name cards are super cute!
Anyways, we spoke to Ah Hai and he was super nice.
Oh! Before I forget, he told me that there would be a car boot flea market going on at Orchard Central this weekend!
A lot of their vehicles will be featured I think. Do head down if you’re keen.
I think I saw the TVC too, got celebrities heading there too. :)
NOW FOR THE FOOD!
Kombi Rocks serves Thai fusion and they sure did their food very well!
Fish Maw Soup for $13. Aroi Mak Mak!
I also ordered Tom Yum Vermicelli Soup.
I CANNOT RESIST TOM YUM.
It’s really good! Wish it was a bit spicier though! Heh.
A got her favourite Thai dish too.
She has been eating this everytime she has the chance to when we were in Bangkok two weeks ago.
Food was pretty good and reasonably priced!
I recommend this place to anyone who likes old school looking place,
and if you also have a penchant for vintage classic automobiles, you MUST NOT miss this place.
There are more vehicles parked at the back of the diner too (which I didn’t explore),
so do check them out if you’re there in future too! :)
Here is their address.
Kombi Rocks Diner
66 Yio Chu Kang Road,
Serangoon, Singapore 545568
Before we head off, I went to check out the interiors of the Kombi.
It’s really super cute lor. I like. :(
OK lah, and one last picture, help them do free ad.
Hope you like this recommendation because I totally dig it!
I am having so much fun exploring new places and pigging out.
LIKE this post if you want more cafes!
And please do give me a slight nudge and let me know if I am going overboard with the visiting of cafes.
If not, please shoot & leave a comment to let me know where to go next!!!

Hello girls! I’m back to show my little trip to another cafe.
This time round, it’s to Five & Dime at River Valley.
It was a little date for A and I after a busy week and I really love it!
I’m wearing my new top from Adan y Eva!
I love the top, other than the lovely nude colors that works for me all the time,
the quality is super good too!
(No need to iron! Hehe!)
There is plenty of parking area around the cafe,
but that’s probably we visited the cafe during the off-peak hours too.
The cafe looks really cute from the outside!
I like the colors of the building and how it looks!
We got a seat near the main entrance.
The design of the place mats on the table is really cute too.
To be honest, I was expecting to see a huge place because the cafe looks quite big on their Facebook Page.
There are about less than 15 tables in the cafe but thankfully,
they are all spaced out properly so it looks pretty spacious.
I like the huge ceiling-to-floor windows, allowing lots of daylight into the cafe.
Bright and clean cafes are always awesome!
Old school looking floor tiles!
We were there for lunch so we only got to see their lunch menu.
I was a little surprised to see their menu because the choices were quite limited.
There is a huge variety for drinks too!
Lots of alcoholic drinks to choose from as well.
A settled for a egg and bacon sandwich, which turned out to be really really yummy!
It comes with a potato salad side which was really good as well!
As for me, the hard core carbohydrates addict, I picked the Mentaiko pasta!
It looks really delicious but I swear it tastes better than it looks!
I hate places that serves pasta with all the wrong serving sizes,
either too damn much or too little.
But this one was just right! :)
And some iced coffee to perk us up!
I’m really satisfied with the quality and taste of the food (especially my yummy pasta!)
Now it’s time for more pictures around the cafe!
Sinsin’s wedding is coming right up this coming Sunday and I cannot wait!
The girls and I just had a little hen’s night part with her two nights ago,
and I’ll be back with more updates and pictures really soon!
Till then, thanks for dropping by today and I hope you like the cafe I recommended.
Be sure to try their delectable sandwiches or the Mentaiko pasta when you’re there!
