Cutest Couple EVARRR & Massive Fangirling For Kay Kay

So last Sunday I met up with Jaznale and Jeremy, who were just oozing couple-y sweetness all over the place. And they brought me to this homely Korean restaurant where I finally had the chance to try ddeokbokki! :D


Spicy Korean rice cakes. Yummy but too hot for a spice wimp like me haha.

Afterwards we headed to town to redeem my free SASAtinnie mascara courtesy of Seventeen magazine. I am totally flabbergasted that they are ending their run. Why?! WHY?!?! My favourite magazine since I was like twelve... :( I'm just really thankful to have been featured in the second last issue ever :') Also because I had to pick up the Kracie Happy Kitchen set I bought online. Will be playing with and blogging about it soon! ...Or three months later haha eet depends on my mood~~

Lastly, Jeremy gave me the wonderful tip off that Kay Kay was going to be at the flea market at *SCAPE, which was craaaaazy coz she is like a celeb in my mind lol. I watched every episode of Chick vs Dick multiple times like a maniac when I was holidaying in Perth like three years ago and spent the whole night surfin the net. I literally cheered when she started blogging last year. That woman is just so endearing!! And I really admire her intelligence~ Okay this is starting to sound a lil stalkerish so Im'ma stop gushing about her.

When we got there, Jeremy and I were soooo nervous and scanning the place for Kay Kay. Then I spotted Eric's bombastic green hairdo and I was like Oh. Snap.

The two of us tottered over to sneak a glance at Kay Kay while Jaznale followed behind probably wondering why Jeremy and I were fangirling SO hard haha. But anyways KK was sooo pretty and I kept contemplating about asking for a picture with her and I always chickened out at the last minute :( I knew if I didn't do it I would just regret it yet I was too much of a coward to ask!! WAE D;

So yeah after walking around and hyperventilating about how we just saw a big STAR (to Jeremy and I lol) we left and that night I dreamed about what happened in the day, only in the dream I actually took a photo with Kay Kay. And when I woke up I was all excited to go to my camera and see the pic only to receive a harsh slap from the reality that is I am a big ol wimp.

Ta-ta~

Sweet & Lovely~~

Alrighty, I've broken my wonderful streak of publishing a new post almost every single day because for the past week I actually went out of the house and interacted with other human beings! Oh my gosh! Do I finally have a life? :D

So I've accumulated a bunch of photos and happenings to blog about. Hopefully I'll have the motivation to clear them all before I head to Perth early December for my annual trip Down Under. Whoop whoop!!

Meanwhile, some random pics:


I've been soooo addicted to these Godiva choccies ♥


The sea salt toffee caramels are TO DIE FOR.


Rice with Vermont Instant Japanese Curry my mum cooked for dinner :) I think the usual one comes with carrots and potatoes so we assumed it would be the same for all kinds, but the one above was a variation that had ~*a touch of apple and honey*~ and it was just plain curry!! D: #flabbergasted

But anywho my mum put carrots and mushrooms into it, as well as some vile-tasting bak teng aka canned spiced pork cubes. I love eating meat but the flavour of the canned pork is just...bleurrrghhh.

***

In Kpop news this week, I'm still not catching on to Spica's new song 'Lonely'. It's frustrating coz 'Painkiller' and 'Russian Roulette' were so flawless that it made me a Mercury (for those of you who didn't know, MERCURY is the official fan club name for SPICA. And yes all this probably sounds like some major dumbness to you if you're not a Kpop stan aka stalker fan.) almost immediately and had me playing them on loop for a good month or so. 'I'll Be There' was considerably catchy but not as awesome as I'd hoped their comeback would be.

But can we just take a moment to appreciate the sheer beauty of my favourite member/wife, Juhyun?


I stopped breathing for a split second this was shown near the end of the MV.

On the flip side, one member of the group is really starting to annoy me. Never really noticed her in previous MVs but in 'Lonely', Narae has the exact same expression in the whole MV which is this sickeningly sad, confused vulnerable look that makes me really uncomfortable. It's so irritating that it's preventing me from watching the MV coz everytime it shows her I flinch and it's just not very fun.

And to make it worse, the letters of her name are 80% identical to mine!! Noooo D;

Maybe I will like her again in the future idk. Did I just type all that about my meaningless Kpop opinions.

*deep sigh*

Okie I am going to go fold laundry for pocket money now. Toodles~!

Why is the thunder so loud T^T

Pizza Hut More Like Delicious Main Courses Hut

So I've recently started buying coupons for whatever tickles my fancy on Groupon. So far only coupons for food and hair treatments and no products yet.

I used my very first coupon last week when I went out with Fifi ♥. I missed her so much D; And this sounds crazy but I haven't like, went out to shop and eat and hang out with a friend for about THREE WHOLE MONTHS. I wish I was joking but for real, I'd been holing myself up in my house studying and I was starting to get weird after going so long without social interaction outside of my family members... So yeah it was awesome to finally go out and be all crazy and hyper again after what felt like a millennium :D

My coupon was for two Pizza Hut main courses (whoop whoop!) and a drink! There was also an additional top-up option of three sweet and spicy drumlets so we got 'em too :)

Some of y'all are probably thinking that Pizza Hut is a place to eat pizzas and pizzas only and I am here to tell you right now YOU A FOOL. They have main courses which are yummalicious too!!


Fifi's chicken steak.

I didn't try the chicken but oh my gaaaaahhhhh the chips are FANTASTIC. That is all.


My rigatoni in hazelnut creme.

Initially I wasn't too keen on ordering it coz it seemed like just a plain creamy pasta but the smoked chicken sounded promising and I was curious as to how the ~hazelnut creme~ would taste like so I went ahead and tried it.

BAM.

EXPLOSION OF YUMMINESS.

As far as hazelnuttiness goes, I couldn't really taste any significance? Or maybe my taste buds are just not as sophisticated but anyways the sauce had sooooo much cheese which is a dream come true for me because I absolutely hate it when pasta sauces smell all cheesy and delicious but when you taste it it's all bland and depressing.

The smoked chicken was FAB and they used delicious button mushrooms instead of the cheap basic kind so good job (Y)

Another Pizza Hut main course I tried several months ago was their cannelloni. The moment I heard that there was a place where I could have delicious and affordable cannelloni I was like dayum lemme get my money and head to the nearest Pizza Hut. I LOVE PASTA AND I LOVE RARE AND SPECIAL PASTAS EVEN MORE.

Just wanna give you guys a little heads up though, the appearance is not as promised by Pizza Hut's photos...

EXPECTATION:


REALITY...


Hahahahahahaha.

I had this with Bestest Friend In The Whole Wide World aka Farhana and we ordered the same thing. We were chatting (probably about something inappropriate) and when the waitress brought to plates of the above to our table we were like "Thaaaaanks!" while eyeing the cannelloni like, ummmmmm. dot dot dot.

Beauty is only crust deep, however, and the cannelloni proved to be quite delicious. I was able to enjoy it even though I was on the verge of passing out as I was just starting to fall into the depths of what would become the worse bout of flu I've had this whole year. Mountain of tissues soaked through with snot, throat hurting like a bitch, watery eyes and skinless nose. Sorry about being grossly ill while hanging out with you Farhana lol. And also spraying you with germs oops. (Remember the Malay cutie at Guardian mmmm dayum lol)

So yeah go get some deliciousness at Pizza Hut soon :)

Bye guyzzzz xoxo

Pretty Little Liars

"Got a secret, can you keep it?
Swear this one you'll save.
Better lock it in your pocket,
taking this one to the grave."

So a couple of weeks ago I decided to start watching Pretty Little Liars. You know, since the holidays were coming up. I'd actually downloaded Season 1 since the beginning of the year but never really felt like starting the series because I was so busy pouring my heart and soul into worshiping my all-time favourite TV show, How I Met Your Mother. But anywhozzles, I watched it and I got hooked instantly.

I know, I know. Insert slowbro meme here.

Nevertheless, I now have a new TV series to be overly emotionally attached to so there.

Can I just take a moment to rave about how attractive the cast is?

My fave characters are Hanna and Spencer (played by Ashley Benson and Troian Bellisario respectively), both SUPER GORGEOUS ladies.
Ezra Fitz is soooo cute omgz he's got the kind of look that's just so cute and boyish and every time I watch an interview with Ian Harding (guy who plays Ezra) on Youtube I can't help but go squeeeee~~~!! because he is just so freaking adorable.
Toby Cavanaugh (played by Keegan Allen)'s body: HUBBA HUBBA. lolololol *blush*

I think Caleb has the most horrendous hairstyle ever lol but other than that he is pretty handsome and I like his character :)

Oh and one last thing, when I first started watching the show, my mind was just filled with overwhelming thoughts every time Spencer was shown. Who does she remind me of so much?! Then one fine day it finally hit me like a ton of bricks.

MODEL/MEDIACORP ACTRESS PAIGE CHUA.


Okay y'all must be looking at the weak-ass comparisons and thinking I am either visually impaired or cuckoo bananas and let me just tell you, I can't really see the resemblance in the photos either. Aside from the fact that I absolutely suck at finding pictures where two people are in similar positions or are displaying the same expressions, it's also hard to see them looking all that similar because one is Chinese and the other is White.

What I'm trying to say is, the vibe from Troian's acting is so darn similar to Paige's. It's just so creepy like they are a different race's version of each other! You have to watch both Troian and Paige acting to see what I'm talking about.

But otherwise never mind, it could be just me. Meaning I spent about two hours of my morning constructing that collage that proved absolutely nothing haha fml oh well at least I enjoyed looking at Troian's beautiful face :) And Paige too damn she is gorgeous~

I just finished downloading Season 2 of Pretty Little Liars last night (HOORAY. Can't imagine having to wait any longer to find out what happens. And I need my PLL fix. I NEED IT!!!! I THRIVE ON JUICY STORYLINES AND ATTRACTIVE ACTORS!!!!) so I'm excited to start watching it :)

Meanwhile, enjoy this hilarious pic I found whilst hunting for pictures of Spencer in which she resembles Paige Chua (and failed, evidently):


HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

Fun Little How I Met Your Mother Fact: Lucy Hale (who plays Aria) starred in an episode of HIMYM as ROBIN'S SISTER!! How cool is that lol okay bye.

Guangzhou 2012

I decided that it's probably a good idea to blog about my trip to Guangzhou, China before 2012 comes to a close haha. This took place during mid-January so...I'm ten months behind on this post...

*clap clap* Bravo.

IN THE AIR

My family and I flew Tiger Airways which meant no super awesome in-flight entertainment! Which is like 1/3 of the reason why I'm so madly in love with riding airplanes, along with the food~~ <3

When I first discovered that a lot of people detest airline food I was like whaaaaat. Girl you cray!

So anyways I borrowed a book from the library specially for the plane ride :)

But here's what I wound up doing instead...


This is quite sad really.

Around the end of last year was when I first started watching How I Met Your Mother. By January 2012 I had become a HUGE fan of it and of course I just had to watch and re-watch every single episode starting from Season 1! And yes I downloaded Let's Go To The Mall and danced to it and listened to it while I was studying and as you can see, I freaking memorised the lyrics and wrote them down on a piece of tissue paper.

WHAT.

I may have made some spelling errors on the Canada references and my handwriting looks shitty (*COUGH*I blame it on the shitty pen*COUGH*) so don't judge!


The book which I totally neglected after like four chapters.

I told you guys I'm crazy about cupcakes lol. I was soooo excited to read it but turns out it wasn't really about cupcakes at all haha #sadface

FOOD


Chinese New Year snacks :D

The candied lotus root (in the middle) is so unique! Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think it's commonly found in Singapore ._.


FREAKING BREAKFAST BUFFET AT THE HOTEL UGHHHHH.

Buffet is seriously one of the most beautiful words in the English language.


Ooooh fancy~~!! :D

They were pretty freaking delicious.


SOMEBODY HELP ME. I physically CANNOT look at a picture of egg yolk prawns and not drool all over myself. I just can't.


Rather delicious fruit cake we had to celebrate my dad's birthday :)

AT THE ZOO

Okay from this point onwards it's just gonna pictures of animals. Some cute and cuddly, some being absolutely derpalicious and the rest just being their majestic selves. So if you don't like animals, you can leave now and WHAT IS WRONG WIT U AJKDGHSLAJAKLHS WHO DOESN'T LIKE ANIMALS.



Hehe road block.


Alpacas.


LOOK AT THAT ZELO RAMEN HAIR. And foam at the mouth hahahaha okay sorry that was mean I'm sorry Mr Yak(?) you look very dashing with your curly hair.

Baby hippos are sooooo cute it's a bit ridiculous.


KUA SIMI KUA. Hahaha I'm just kidding don't even say that xD


And lastly here's a photo of two bears either giving each other a big bear hug or about to engage in a clobberin' session.


Toodles~ ^_^

Whipping Up Some Whipple Cupcakes

I absolutely adore cupcakes. Not so much eating them, but decorating them and just admiring how adorable they are in general ^_^

Sadly, my house doesn't have an oven so my baking days were over after I graduated secondary school and stopped having Food and Nutrition classes :(

I was so stoked when I learned about Whipple! No messy baking and calories involved, just decorating and making the (fake) cupcakes look uber pretty! :D


Basically Whipple is a cream that you pipe out onto different pre-made plastic food replicas. There's a wide range of different foods which you can decorate including cakes, fruit tarts, gingerbread biscuits and crepes.

The cream is inedible. It also smells pretty bad haha. Sort of like paint. It has a creamy consistency when you pipe it on and it slowly dries out and hardens. The surface dries in about an hour but it takes a day or two for the cream to set completely. Lastly, the cream is water soluble so whatever you do, don't get it wet or it'll become a big, gloppy mess!


The contents.


A star-shaped nozzle and nozzle cap. 3 key chains (can only be looped onto the little cupcakes). 3 big and 3 small cupcakes. Colourful beads, some rhinestones and plastic cut-outs for decoration.


The bag of cream, instruction sheet and a practice sheet for piping out various patterns.

The instructions are really helpful. They have step by step instructions on how to pipe each pattern so your decoration won't look like lao sai :D


My practice run! It says you should practice on a piece of paper to get the hang of it. But I think I practiced a little too much and as a result I didn't have enough cream left to finish decorating all the cupcakes :P


Good thing my mum also bought a pack of chocolate cream!

Are you ready to see what it looks like before you knead it and mix the contents of the cream evenly? Don't say I didn't warn you...


GODDAMN. Does the red liquid not look like chilli oil? Or something way grosser...Ladies, you know what I'm referring to >.<


Fruit decoration pieces :D

They are so awesome coz they make your creations look more realistic and yummy. The beads may look pretty but they just seem rather fake...

And...drumroll please!

My creations! (Except for the big cupcake on the left which was done by my sister)


:D







Hehe it was good fun and it's great because you can keep them for life, provided you don't let them come into contact with water. They make really pretty decorations and the key chains make great presents. Wouldn't it be special to gift someone a unique customised key chain you decorated while thinking of them? Awwwww~!!

The downside would be the hefty price tags of these toys.

Cupcake set: $19.95 (Can't complain, the kit comes with everything you need but be careful to use the cream sparingly or you'll use up all of it and still have cupcakes left undecorated)
One piping bag of chocolate cream: $10.95 (Clever how they make this pricey coz they know fools like myself are gonna be like whoooo use all the cream!! and wind up having to buy filler packs <.<)
One box of decorative fruit pieces: $17.95

THAT'S ALMOST EIGHTEEN FREAKING DOLLARS. FOR TWENTY-TWO LITTLE PIECES OF PLASTIC FRUIT (okay it also comes with like a scattering of rhinestones but that's hardly worth anything). But people are still gonna buy it coz they just make your Whipple creations so. Damn. Pretty.

Damn it all these super happy fun toys like Whipple and Popin Cooking are so fun to play with but soooo expensive. #broke

Whipple sets can be purchased at Toys R Us :)

My Love For Saizeriya


I know I've raved previously about how much I love their delicious yet crazily affordable food but I just have to do it again.

The times I've patronised Saizeriya was always with my friend and each of us will just get a main course and the drink bar each. There was this one time I got the escargots and I almost cried they were SO GOOD. But anyways, this time I went with my mum and sis meaning HELL YEAH SMORGASBOARD. My mum was like "Go right on ahead and order whatever tickles your fancy~!" lol okay she didn't say it like that but still.

Pictured above is some freaking AMAZEBALLS pesto pasta (freaking love pesto), eggplant grilled with cheesy mine meat tomato sauce (YUM?!?!?!), some clams (meh it was alright, can't beat Fish & Co.'s mindblowing mussels in BUTTER SAUCE) and some fried chicken.

In all honesty the fried chicken was probably the first dish at Saizeriya I had to give a thumbs down to. The batter was boring and it wasn't even fried to crispiness, and the 'pepper sauce' was a watery mess, almost like water mixed with heaps of pepper and just a hint of cream. So yeah get anything you want just don't get the fried chicken.

***

Well today was a pretty productive day for me because after about two years of procrastinating, I finally sorted out my pictures folder which was a sky high mountain of mess. I also changed my blog's favicon (look up! it's the cute lil pudding next to my blog title at your tab :D) and my blogger profile picture (both a picture of an ugly-ass squirtle lol). I know you guys think my profile pic is sexy ;)

You can go and look at it here hehehe.

Hugs and kisses! Goodbye~!
