Recently, Nando’s have launched a brand-new flavor, Mango & Lime! I can’t believe it pairs well and tastes so zingy delicious! It is refreshingly sweet and zesty, great for people who can’t take the heat at all! The new Mango & Lime is set to bring a new dimension to our range of PERi-PERi flavors to suit Singaporean’s taste buds. This interesting mix of refreshing flavors is a sure-winner for you and chicken lovers!
The Full Platter will allow 2 to 4 people to share as it consists of one whole Chicken and 2 Large sides (or 4 REG sides). Make sure to go with their Mango & Lime so that you can experience the new robust flavors!
I got to try out one of their Designer Dinks, Citrus Bliss. It is a combination of Mint Syrup, with Grapefruit Juice and Sprite. Refreshing sweet and carbonated drink to mark the start of my chicken feast!
If you have been to Nando’s, you know that you get to pair your chicken with their PERi-PERi sauces!
PERi-PERi Soup with Chicken
PERi-PERi Soup with Chicken, your typical Cream Soup with a twist of spice. Served with grilled Garlic Roll, it was a little different than what I was expecting and it goes even better with their PERi-PERi sauces!
Espetada (essentially a very long chicken stick) is a fun and delicious way of having Nando’s Marinated Chicken Thighs. Served with 2 REG sides, it will be a showstopper for your evening meal and a great way to entertain your family and friends as you get to help them with the chicken.NandoNan
Tangy Lemon Tart
To end the meal, I got to try out their new dessert, Tangy Lemon Tart. It was a so good because the tart has a balance of tartness and sweetness. I have personally tried many and this was one of the best! The crust was also very buttery, it is something I would come back again for!
If you are looking for a café that has no GST and no service charge. Caffe Pralet is the place to go. Caffe Pralet has a history of 10 years here in Eng Hoon Street. The founder Julie Koh, opened a baking school and café here 10 years ago to showcase the culinary side of her.
Today, they have revamped their menu and has a wide range of fusion food.
Hei Bi Aglio Olio
I got to try out their Hei Bi Aglio Olio. If you don’t know what Hei Bi is, it’s basically dried small shrimps that have a very pungent smell to it. It was my first time trying out such an exotic combination, certainly very original. Hei Bi-lovers will sure to be pleased!
Chicken Chop with Satay Sauce
I love their Chicken Chop with Satay Sauce. I feel that the idea of putting them together is brilliant. The satay sauce was indo-inspired. Therefore, creamy and full of flavour. Yet, it doesn’t overpower the whole dish as it comes with a refreshing cucumber ah-cha and sour cream.
Be sure to also try out their Paprika Fries! I was told by the Head Chef that they had actually made their own secret blend of seasonings. Delish!
I was quite astonished that they have a wide selection of cakes and pastry. Everything is made in-house from the baking school beside the café. I got to try out their Gula Melaka Cake, Chocolate Cake, and Red Velvet Cake
Red Velvet Cake
Though I was told that the Red Velvet Cake uses Beet Root, I personally feel that it was a little dry and can be further improved. Nevertheless, the other cakes were very satisfying and delectable.
Chocolate Cake and Gula Melaka Cake
The rich layered Chocolate Cake comes with a chocolate sponge, followed by mousse and hazelnut praline, finishing off with a chocolate glaze and gold flakes. I love the crunch of the hazelnut praline with the deep rich chocolate mousse. Total indulgence.
Gula Melaka Cake
Coconut-lovers, you should totally try out their Gula Melaka Cake. It got to be my favourite. The layered cake comes with toasted sweet coconut at the bottom, Gula Melaka-flavoured cheese mousse and Pandan sponge. Brings me back to the days where my mum got me Oneh-Oneh every week when I was young.
CaffePralet August Special

Cheese Tarts are taking over Singapore and everyone is crazy about it.
It started with a Japanese bakery, BAKE which made Singaporeans queued for almost 2 hours on the first-day opening to get these babies.
Now, you could get these Cheese Tarts almost anywhere in Singapore. Most bakeries have adopted their take on these tarts.
Feeling fancy to make some at home? Try my Cheese Tarts recipe! It is actually very simple. These Cheese Tarts are to die for! And they tasted best when it’s warm, so make sure to reheat it in a toaster oven before you serve!
Great for parties too. Easy to transport. Love it!
If you guys have been following me, you will know that I blogged about my teeth straightening journey part 1 last December 2014. I had to do an operation before I start my Invisalign treatment. Of course, not everyone needs to do an operation for this treatment! Mine was extra-extra special, go read about my previous post if you want to know why. Nevertheless, yes! I am going to have a perfect teeth!
I am so upset as people often criticize me that I have a really ugly and crooked teeth. In some angle, I manage to make them look perfect like I have straight teeth. But I am not going to have a perfect straight teeth unless I do something about it. It looks really ugly if you look it from the side!
You can see that my front teeth were protruding out. #Throwback with mum, Sea Aquarium 2014.
You can really it see from this angle. Really ugly! Front teeth out curved back it into the centre sort of like a butterfly. Yucks. Taken at Alaska, 2013.
I think perfect straight teeth is the one of the most important thing that everyone must have. I mean if you have near-to perfect teeth maybe you can shove off the idea. Like a friend of mine, her’s was almost too perfect. I’m so jealous! But not everybody have near-to or perfectly straighten teeth! So I am sure that it is in most of our to-do list. Not only you get to straighten your teeth, you also can correct your bite. Which I’m sure most people would have this issue.
I wanted to do braces to straighten my teeth. But like I said in my previous post, I really hate that ugly metal wire. I am not going to wear that for 2 whole years!
Therefore, I have to say that I’m going ‘INVISIBLE’! Not that I’m really going to become invisible, but my aligners are. No disgusting colored metal wires! All thanks to, Invisalign.
Yes, Invisalign. The clear alternative to braces. It’s clear, almost invisible, comfortable and easy to maintain clean.
Watch the video to see my Invisalign Journey!
There are many advantages when compared to traditional braces. Here are just some highlights.
Not only that, I often heard from my friends who wore braces that they had irritations from their thick metal wire which cause their lips to sore. Sounds bad! Personally for me, I don’t really feel any irritations from wearing Invisalign aligners. Although, I feel a little tight as if my teeth were about to chip off when I change to a new set of aligners. But, the feeling will go away after 2 to 3 days. However, I’m sure most people who wear braces will also face the same pain as me every month after their dental visit to tighten it. Because honestly, if your aligners/wires were to be too loose, I doubt it will help to push your teeth.
This is what I was given when my first aligners were issued. I have to wear the rubber band after my first set.
This is how I look when I put my aligners on. Not that obvious, right?
As you can see, there were some bumps and those are called attachments. They are glued to my teeth and will help to push my teeth more effectively. No worries because they know how to remove it after you finish your treatment. And not everyone gets attachments, so you may not even have those white bumps like me!
At first, I don’t really like the face that I have these ugly bumps on my teeth. I felt that it will look ugly and everyone will be judging. But I have gotten used of it and nobody really notice it. Nobody cares. LOL
It is important to use the chewies (that green rubber to bite on it) every time when I change my aligners because it will make sure to fit it in and move my teeth gently. To be honest, I rarely use those. I only use it the first time I every time change my aligners. But oh well, just make sure the aligners fit! Ms. Jessebelle has been nagging me about not using the chewies as often as she would like me to. Oops, I guess I will try to use it more often.
Regular checkups with my doctor, Dr Kenneth Tan.
I laugh a lot because they are very humorous!

This year is a very special year for all Singaporeans. We are celebrating Singapore’s 50th birthday.
A city that’s called my home. I would like to share this recipe and why I created it.
I have used a Red Velvet Cake based in contrast with the White Vanilla Buttercream to represent Singapore’s flag. So when you cut the cake, you will cake that red and white interior!
What’s every Singaporean’s favorite all time biscuits? Gem Biscuits! They are small and cute. When I was young, I loved it so much that I eat it almost everyday. I like to eat the sugary icing first, then the plain old biscuits. Which, I’m sure people living in this little red dot do that. Yum, that’s nostalgic.
Handmade Merlion and SG50 Logo Chocolates. This is a very unique way of using chocolate and I think we did beautifully. When we talk about creating a national cake like this, Merlion is ought to be there no questions asked. Merlion is our national icon and people will instantly recognize that it’s Singapore! I once said it in chinese, “一个很特别可是不真实的动物”. (A very special but unreal animal)
Beautiful, nostalgic, and so Singapore! Looks like a lion garden city full of lovely citizens
