Located in the heart of the Singapore River at Robertson Quay, Bugis Café by Studio M is a new outdoor kiosk that serves craft beers and local delights for you to chill and relax with your friends. The outdoor space is inspired by the past thriving district of Bugis with a vivid and colorful nightlife scene that is rich in its history, delivering you a fun and enjoyable experience.

The Chicken’s Rollin’ is one of Bugis Café signature dishes that you should try it out when you are here. Inspired by the local Hainanese Chicken Rice, this dish is made into a rice roll and then deep fried to give you a crispy outer layer. It certainly pairs really well with a drink!

The Trio Golden Cups (Kueh Pie Tee) are actually a little different from the traditional Kueh Pie Tee you usually get. Here at Bugis Café, they replaced it with Chicken and Satay Sauce. Surprisingly, the combination complements quite well with the tartlet.

If you feeling extremely hungry and want something filling, Bugis Café also offers a wide array of main course dishes other than bites for you to savor. I got to try out their “Belly-Nice” Pork which was braised pork belly with rice and it was alright. The pork belly was juicy and the tau pok was busting with flavourful when you bite into it. I like my rice to be ‘wet’, so the next time I order it, I’ll request for some extra gravy to go along with.

Another fancy way of saying Satay, Chick On Stick is no doubt, our local grilled chicken skewer. Paired with the Peanut Satay Sauce, it can never go wrong!

“Curry Your Favour” Chicken is your typical Indian curry instead of the Nyonya style. You get to choose to go with Roti Prata (which goes really very well with the curry), Rice or Noodles. If you are feeling hungry and want something localicious, make sure to order this to satisfy your craving!

LASIK Experience with W Eye Clinic

LASIK Experience with W Eye Clinic

LASIK Experience with W Eye Clinic

It has been about 3 months since I did my LASIK surgery. I know some of you guys are very curious on my LASIK journey so I can’t wait to share with you guys how I feel about it.

Why did I go for LASIK?

Even though my shortsighted degree wasn’t very high (both sides about -1.75), I decided to still go with the procedure because I find a hassle wearing glasses and contact lens. On days whereby I need to wear contact lens, it would take me ages to put on the lens as it can get pretty irritating. The idea of rubbing my eyes when trying to put it on definitely isn’t pleasing! I also don’t like the feeling of dryness after prolonged of wearing it. Additionally, my ears would feel really sore if I wear spectacles for long hours.

Sometimes, I’m lazy to wear any spectacles or contact lenses. But, it was hard for me to see things like street’s name, bus number, or signage even though my degree wasn’t very high. It was still affecting my daily life.

Pre-LASIK Assessment

LASIK Experience with W Eye Clinic

LASIK Experience with W Eye Clinic – Pre-LASIK Assessment

I was told that a pre-assessment was needed to be made for the doctor to evaluate if I am suitable for LASIK. The Pre-LASIK Assessment was only SGD$25 at W Eye Clinic! It was really affordable to get your eyes checked. To make a booking for the assessment was fairly easy, all I did was to make a call for an appointment. The whole process was about 2 hours. Yes, it was long. But, I was glad that the clinic checked my eyes thoroughly to make sure that I’m suitable for the surgery. I told myself that if I’m not suitable it would be alright because it was only 20 bucks. No harm getting it checked, right?

Do note that the result of the assessment will be only valid for 3 months, so if you are suitable for LASIK, make sure to pre-book your surgery date within 3 months of the pre-assessment day! I was super thrilled when the doctor told me that I was suitable to do the surgery.

Dr. Nah suggested me to do Intralase LASIK and I went ahead with his recommendation.

For more info about the method, you could click here.

Surgery

The actual surgery was separated mainly into two parts:

  1. Creation of Flap
  2. Laser

Though the whole process took about 2 hours, most of the time I was just getting prepared. There were lots of cleaning and resting in between to make sure I was ready for the next step. When it comes to the actual machine doing the lasering, it took less than 1 minute per eye each time.  I was super nervous during the procedure! But, the nurse that was attending me was very caring and understanding. She slowly explained the process throughout the procedure so that I would know what to expect next and be prepared for. Honestly, I don’t feel any pain at all, even after the procedure when my anesthetic wore off. My eyes just felt a little dry and itchy. I was told repeatedly NOT to rub my eyes and use lots of eye drops to aid healing.

Benefits

I decided to go for this method because,

  1. It recovers quickly – perfect vision on the 2nd day
  2. Painless – Only felt a little drier than usual for the first 2 weeks but no pain

Post-Surgery

LASIK Experience with W Eye Clinic

LASIK Experience with W Eye Clinic – Reddish eyes can be seen on my side view

My eyes were quite red after the surgery. Dr. Nah told me that the reason for my reddy eyes was that he used a stronger suction during the first part of the surgery. A stronger suction is safer for us patient as the chances of it slipping away during the surgery is lower. This means that your eye will stay still while the machine creates the flap. Of course, the downside for me was that I had reddy eyes for the next 3 weeks. Yet, I prefer the safer option and have the reddish eyes to risking it slipping away if he used a weaker suction cup.

I woke up with a perfect vision on the 2nd day. However, I was told my Dr. Nah that the first few weeks of recovery was crucial and advised me to keep putting eye drop medication and go for review to prevent infection. I made sure to get enough rest and avoid dusty areas to promote healing during that period too.

Another factor was that I could not wash my hair and face for the first week of recovery to prevent bacteria from getting into my eyes. It was a hassle for me as I could only use wet wipes to clean my face while avoiding the eye area. I was instructed to gently clean the area of my eyes with a cotton ball that has been soaked in recently boiled water twice a day. Still, it wasn’t that bad as I was having my term breaks and just stayed at home.

A week after my surgery, my eyes felt so much better, even though I do feel dry from time to time, I find myself needing lesser eye drops than before. Still, I was advised to lubricate my eyes well for the first 3 months.

LASIK Experience with W Eye Clinic

LASIK Experience with W Eye Clinic – Picture was taken after 2 months post-surgery in Japan

Now (after 3 months), my eyes feel good as I don’t feel dry anymore. I thought I was going to be prepared to use eye drops every day for life, I find myself not needing eye drops anymore. I still strongly believe in having some eye drop vials on hand if I find myself feeling dry and tired after a long day. I’m also glad that my doctor told me that I have 6 out of 6 perfect eyesight!

The size of the pan is great when making breakfast for yourself or for two. Cooking became so much easier when the food slides off easily from the pan. Personally, I’m a very lazy cook. I like things to be quick and fuss-free, so I often use Tefal non-stick cookware myself. As compared to other brands, they last really long!

Invisalign Final Update – Teeth Straightening Part 3

Invisalign Final Update

Invisalign Final Update

It’s been about 2 years since I started my teeth straightening journey. The whole process of my Invisalign wasn’t actually that long, I only wore it about one and a half years. If you want to know about the first part of my journey of Invisalign, make sure to click here.

Invisalign Update

Invisalign Final Update

As compared to the past, my teeth look damn perfect, right? I am so happy with the result!

I still have to wear those plastic aligners (aka. retainers) every night to maintain it. Even if you were to do braces you would have to wear it after your treatment too! I mean it can still be a hassle, after all, you have to wash the retainers and pop it in your mouth every night, only to take it out in the morning when you wake up. But, that’s the consequence of being vain, right?

Look at the before and after photos of me. I still can’t believe how by straightening my teeth, my whole looks kinda changed for the better! 

*ALERT! BRACE YOURSELF WITH MY VERY UGLY PHOTOS THAT WILL MAKE YOU WANT TO PUKE! 

Invisalign Final Update - Before and After

You can see that my front teeth were protruding out so badly like a butterfly. I’m very bliss that now I look so much better.

Invisalign Final Update - Before and After

Invisalign Final Update – Before and After

A lot of differences right? The whole structure looks much more rounded and straighter looking as compared to the past. I wish you would totally ignore my yellowish teeth too! 🙁

Check out this video for my final session with my doctor, Dr. Kenneth Tan.

I’m very glad that I decided to go for Invisalign. Comparing the pictures of before and after makes me realize that how the structure of someone’s teeth can transform the overall look of a person. Not only that, I was able to present the very best of myself during the whole one and the half years of my treatment as the aligners were transparent and ‘invisible’.

When comes to feasting on different local Chinese cuisines, nowhere else could be more apt than Deja Brew, a cozy café strategically located at the Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre.

The menu, well thought out by the owner and his team, is a fusion of traditions and modernity.

Although the rice was slightly drier than the usual, the juiciness of the chicken thigh made up for the dish. A healthy and satisfying dish.

For the appetizer, we decided to go for Miffy’s Nice Nacho Cheese Fries. I believe the fries were made in-house as the wedges were cut differently, giving that very special and rustic texture. It was very well-prepared, crispy on the outside but soft and fluffy on the inside. I like the fact that they actually left the skin intact, deepening the flavor of the potatoes. Paired with a generous drizzle of nacho cheese and mayonnaise, I enjoyed a lot!

I do hope, however, is that they offer their customers to choose either bacon or sliced sausages.

Salon Kream @ Holland Village (Exclusive discount 20% off total bill)

Salon Kream conveniently locates at the heart of Holland Village. Situated just beside the train station, the salon is opened by a group of friends who have similar mindsets to step forward together in the hair industry.

Salon Kream - Olaplex Treatment

Salon Kream – Olaplex Treatment

I’m sure you guys know that I perm my hair often to maintain my Korean hairstyle. Of course, it isn’t easy to manage and I have to make sure that my hair is in good condition even after perming it. But luckily, I am glad that Salon Kream also uses Olaplex Treatment! I have been raving about Olaplex treatment before and if you don’t know, it is a new reconstructive treatment developed by top scientists in Santa Barbara that enhance the internal structure of the hair and prevents damage that occurs during chemical services like perming or coloring.

Salon Kream

Waiting for my hair to be treated, permed and cut. I was dazed when they inform me that they close at 6 pm every day. However, it was later on when I understand that they strongly believe in work-life balance. I’m sure their staffs would truly appreciate!

After a lovely hair wash, my chemist, Willie is preparing to treat and perm my hair. I was amazed that the salon works differently as compared to other hair salons. Willie is considered a professional technician at Kream. He only manages chemical services like perming and coloring. A hair stylist will cut my hair later on!

Salon Kream

Salon Kream

He is very knowledgeable and skilled in his job. He consulted on what kind of hairstyle I want and explained the different techniques he would do based on my request. I am very excited to see the result.

Salon Kream

I do look like a grandma whenever I’m perming my hair. Hahaha

If you realize, Willie actually added some pricks onto each rubber band curler. It was unusual to me and I questioned about the usefulness of the extra pricks. (which made the curl tighter than usual) He quickly responded to educate me that those pricks were there to make sure that solution penetrates evenly into the hair and also at the same time tightens the rubber band, making sure that the perm is well-done.

This was the chemical that he used.

Their machine was a little different from the usual too! Instead of having a machine turning around your head with the heat emitting inefficiently, the design of this machine allows a more efficient and even distribution of heat as it has a mini fan to circulate the air around your head.

Salon Kream

Salon Kream

The best thing? They offer tons of e-magazines and I am lovin’ it! 

I am able to get my daily dosage of recipe inspiration from it while doing my hair. I know it has been awhile since I shared a recipe but honestly, it takes a while to develop a recipe to create a video and share on my blog. Plus, with all the other contents I’m covering, I’m so tied down. Nevertheless, I would still try to strive to create new and easy recipes that are quick and delicious! You know me, I’m all about home bake, not those that you can find in an exquisite bakery store.

Salon Kream

Salon Kream

Say hi to my super cute hair stylist, Phyllis! She’s such a fun and funky person.

The moment she met me, she immediately told me that I should try a hairstyle that she thinks would suit me well. She was very eager to give suggestions but at the same time want to make sure that it is something that I am comfortable with.

I know the combination of Jasmine Green Tea and Cheese sounds weird. But, the Cheese actually complements quite well with the flavor of the leaves.

Jasmine Green Tea drink is a common choice for Singaporean. Though we don’t really put cheese on our baked goods, I got my inspiration from Indonesia. Indonesians love to sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese onto their cakes. I was intrigued to try it out and when I got to try it, it was lovely.

To extract all the flavors out from the tea leaves, I infused the leaves with melted butter. I find that this will yield you a stronger aroma. I also make sure to soak the chiffon cake with brewed sweetened tea. This would make sure that the cake will not dry out when chilling it in the fridge and also at the same time enhancing the flavour of the mild Jasmine Green Tea.
