Got my Daniel Wellington at Lazada, extra 9% cashback savings thanks to Shopback!

Online Shopping

I love online shopping because it’s so convenient and easy. I also get to compare prices from many different sellers at one goal, making sure that I get the best deal!

Don’t you just love when there is a huge sale going online? Yet, do you know that you can even get a small percentage of your cash that you spent online to your pocket with ShopBack?

For example, you spent $500 on one of their participating merchant stores, and the merchant has an 5% Cashback. You will get $25 (which is 5%) back to your ShopBack account. Cool right?

Can I still cashback when I use a coupon on a merchant website?

Yes, you can totally use any coupons you have and still get your cash back as long as you shop through ShopBack.

In fact, you can ShopBack is where you can enjoy convenient access to offers and coupons from other merchants working with ShopBack, such as Net-a-porter, Guardian and many more. You can find a whole list of offers here.

Suzette @ Esplanade – The Picnic Basket Concept

Suzette @ Esplanade

Suzette @ Esplanade

If you have heard about Lola’s Cafe, then I’m sure you will want to know more about this new Dessert Bar at Esplanade. The owner of Lola’s Cafe opened a new Dessert Bar named Suzette. Conveniently located at Esplanade, this dessert bar offers a wide scrumptious of desserts and savory menus that are all so heavenly.

Yet, Suzette is not like any other ordinary cafes or dessert bars. Starting from 5th November 2016, you could rent a picnic basket and a mat with a deposit of $50 to go for a picnic! How unconventional right?

Suzette Picnic

Suzette Picnic

I got to have a wonderful picnic experience with their new picnic concept. I love the idea of having an outdoor meal with nature.

Pulled Duck Burger

Pulled Duck Burger

Pulled Duck Burger. Sure it will be messy when having this. But, the shredded duck meat was pleasantly sweet. It was certainly refreshing. 

Quinoa Rice Bowl

Quinoa Rice Bowl

My personal favorite, Quinoa Rice Bowl with Chicken, Guacamole, Corn & Chilli Lime Dressing. I think that the chicken was well-grilled. Paired with the guacamole and dressing, it was flavorful and so delish! I totally prefer Quinoa to Brown Rice. Still, Quinoa is as healthy as Brown Rice. So I was glad that they used Quinoa.

Passion Fruit and Basil Cheese

Passion Fruit and Basil Cheese

For dessert, I got to try out Passion Fruit and Basil Cheesecake. It was fabulously exotic!

From top to bottom, the creator of this dessert certainly a whole lot of thought it too! I was told that only the whipped cream was infused with Basil and not the whole cake itself as some people might not be so fond of the flavor. Then, I was amazed by a wonderful combination of Passion Fruit and Cheese together. Just you think it can’t get any special, the crust was made with a very unusual ingredient. I can’t tell you what is it but, you got to try it out!

Coffee Hazelnut Tart

Coffee Hazelnut Tart

If you love Nutella, you got to try this out yeah! 

Coffee Hazelnut Tart, lovely as always. A mocha nutty crust, hard yet crumbly soft! A little ironic I know but that is how I am going to describe it. The filling was wonderful and aromatic too! Surely a rich and decadent dessert, if that’s what you are looking for.

Banana Earl Grey Cake

Banana Earl Grey Cake

Dense fudgy Banana-flavored & Earl Grey Cake covered with luscious smooth Banana-Flavored almost-caramelized buttercream, that’s a lot of banana to represent this cake. 

Something different if you are feeling adventurous, especially if you are deeply in love with banana. 

Lemon Meringue Tart

Lemon Meringue Tart

Lemon Meringue Tart, a good balance of sour and sweet deems a good tart. I’m sure this will satisfy most people, but I find a little just a little more sourish will do my liking. Nevertheless, I still find that they have one of the best Lemon Meringue Tart in town.

Raspberry Loaf Cake with Lemon Curd

Raspberry Loaf Cake with Lemon Curd

Raspberry Loaf with Lemon Curd may sound rather uncommon to us Singaporeans, but actually a very popular combination elsewhere in the world. Try it out yourself and you will know why. At the very least, I’m sure that a loaf cake won’t go wrong.

Acai Smoothie Bowl

Acai Smoothie Bowl

Simple and light Acai Smoothie Bowl. If you ain’t looking anything to devour down a rather heavy meal, maybe you could grab a bowl of Acai Smoothie from there. Topped with fresh fruit and yummy-limous crumble, simple, light and refreshing.

Drinks

Drinks

Chocolate drink is my favorite among these three. Nevertheless, all three of them are very rich and fragrant.

Suzette Picnic

Suzette Picnic

It was definitely a pleasant evening with Suzette and their new Picnic Concept. I can see that many people will enjoy this idea during their weekends with their family and friends especially after a long week of work. I too would bring someone I want to spend time with to sit down and enjoy the marvelous evening.

Thanks Suzette for having me, giving such as a great hospitality. Ring them out to find more information about it!

Oh My Tian @ Boon Keng – A Singapore Version of Wonderland

Oh My Tian

Oh My Tian

Got to try out Oh My Tian‘s new menu last month. I felt that some of their new dishes will certainly make you feeling OMG.

Oh My Tian

Oh My Tian

 When I stepped into this Carnival-themed cafe, it really felt Oh My Tian Ah. In other words, I meant that the place was majestic and wonderland-liked.

Oh My Tian

Oh My Tian

Strong colors you thought that would mismatch with one another actually complements well. Not your usual cafes.

Milkshakes from Heaven

Milkshakes from Heaven

Their new Milkshakes from Heaven feels exotic with their Blue and Brown. The Blue also known as Sea Salt Gula felt a little lacking of flavors. Definitely can be better.

However, the Brown, which is also known as Chocolate Caramel was a bomb! It has deep caramel flavor that makes you wanna keep drinking! Not too sweet, yet rich and satisfying. 

The Effiel Tower

The Effiel Tower

Quite special, huh? It was actually classic Earl Grey Tea with Caramel Konjac Jelly topped it off with Vanilla Ice Cream. 

Greeny Protein

Greeny Protein

I think you should take a look at their other dishes when dining here. Their salad wasn’t exactly special and it shouldn’t be the reason for you to come here. In other words, come Oh My Tian cafe to try their specialty dishes instead.

Dory Voyage

Dory Voyage

This was damn good! Glorious Beer-battered Charcoal Dory Fish with rich creamy Salted Egg Yolk Sauce. Not only the fact that it looks so unconventional and striking, it’s well-seasoned and full of flavors. I highly recommend you guys to order this!

Oeuf Crossiant

Oeuf Croissant

Oeuf Croissant, infused with Salted Egg Yolk Sauce. Instead of a sweet Salted Egg Yolk Sauce you get from other cafes, Oh My Tian serves it quite savory. What you get from the Dory Voyage, is what you will be going to get from this croissant. I actually prefer Oh My Tian’s Salted Egg Yolk Croissant to other cafes because it can be eaten as a main course. Delightful!

Bonjour Dejeuner

Bonjour Dejeuner

Bonjour Dejeuner consist of Croissant, Turkey Bacon, Chicken Sausage, Leafy Greens, and Scrambled Eggs. Simple, and right up straight forward. You can never go wrong.

 

Hot Summer

Hot Summer

At a first glance, you will think that this is Ice Cream Sandwich Cookie. Yet, after a bite of this dessert, you will realize that it is not your typical dessert. The ‘cookie’ base is actually Chinese Fried Bun. I got to try out with Mango Ice Cream and Salted Strawberry Ice Cream.

I love both of their Ice Creams, especially the Salted Strawberry Ice Cream. So unusual, yet so unbelievably pairing. However, I don’t fancy the Chinese Fried Bun because it was a little oily for me.

Located near Boon Keng MRT, I feel that if you are adventurous for a different cafe experience, you should totally check this place out! I would definitely bring my favorites here to surprise them with a unique experience soon!

Joo Bar – ‘D-I-Y’ Bibimbap @ Bugis

Joo Bar

Joo Bar

I got to ‘D-I-Y’ my own Bibimbap at Joo Bar! They have a wide selection of ingredients to choose from to mix & match starting from just $10.90 with a choice of drink. What I love about is that they even have purple rice or quinoa to choose from!

Purple rice (also known as black rice), contains high amount of anthocyanins antioxidants that help to fight against heart disease and cancer. It is also a good source of fiber that helps with your digestion. 

Joo Bar

Their ingredients felt really fresh! I love how the way they minced their in-house kimchi into fine bits. That way, you could mix it later into your rice evenly. The kimchi had a balance of sour and spicy. I don’t like kimchi that is too sour, so theirs definitely suits my taste bud.

Joo Bar

Joo Bar

My favorite sides got to be sliced spams, bulgogi pork, sweet corn, minced kimchi and crispy tofu! All you need to do is mix and devour.

Flavour Flings Cafe @ Hougang Ave 1

Flavour Flings

Flavour Flings

Looking for a neighbourhood cafe around your area? Flavour Flings Cafe is well-known for their Salted Egg Yolk Croissants and is also halal certified. Conveniently located in Hougang Avenue 1, Flavor Flings is back with a new special menu! 

Garlic Mushroom Bruschetta

Garlic Mushroom Bruschetta

Firstly, we got to try Garlic Mushroom Bruschetta. A delicious Garlic Bruschetta infused with White Truffle oil, top it off with Mushroom Caviar, Tomato Cubes, Parmesan Cheese and Spring Onions. Truffle lovers will sure to find this satisfying as the flavor is very strong and aromatic! I find that the Bruschetta was very well made. Highly recommended to try it out!

Salted Egg Yolk Fries

Salted Egg Yolk Fries

For some lovely bites, we got their Salted Egg Yolk Fries. Drizzled with their in-house Salted Egg Yolk Sauce, the fries were also topped with their fragrant Buttered Cereals. I wasn’t expecting the buttery cereals, but it goes really well with the sauce! It reminds me of Cereal Butter Prawns.

Fling's Noodles V.2.0

Fling’s Noodles V.2.0

Next up, Fling’s Noodles Version 2.0. They have updated their signature Fling’s Noodle. Instead of Spaghetti, they use Fettuccine. Which, I prefer as the garlicky White Cream that is also infused with White Truffle Oil can now better cling onto the pasta. Rich and creamy. Yum! 

Vanilla and Thai Milk Tea Ice Cream Sundae

Vanilla and Thai Milk Tea Ice Cream Sundae

As for dessert, we got to try out Vanilla and Thai Milk Tea Ice Cream Sundae. I find that the Thai Milk Tea Ice Cream was a little icy. Yet, the sweet-scented Vanilla Ice Cream was palatable.

Creme Brulee

Creme Brulee

Lastly, it was one of my favorite, Creme Brulee. I love the fact that Flavour Flings had used a wider, shorter ramekins instead of the taller and smaller ones. This mean that there will be more caramelized sugar topping as the surface area will be larger! The cold custard cream isn’t too jelat and goes really well with the warm sweet caramelized sugar.

All in all, I really enjoyed being there in Flavour Flings. The ambiance was warm and cozy. Food was decent and satisfying. The place will be great for an impromptu casual meet-up with family and friends as it is around my around, Hougang/Kovan.
