38 Vday with the darlings @ Artease NTU

Though Valentines day was never a big deal for me, but that day was a rather memorable one :D
Please, I'm not trying to 自我安慰okayyyy haha....Just thought it was a really fun and sweet day!
After our classes, we went to the cozy and bright Artease Cafe which is located in the HSS building. Quite a popular place among students to grab a drink. There's an extensive choice of coffee and bubble tea beverages, they also serve simple breakfast and cakes.  

So yea we were in the middle of discussing about our research project and you know how girls will end up diverting to topics non related to work within one minute of discussion?? haha that's exactly what we did, started chit chatting and God knows where our topic led to. Owh I remember we were also thinking about ShiYien's bday and stuffs....but with the beautiful surroundings, we immediately turned on the 38-suagu-camwhore-MODE


Folding hearts for valentines day :D


and many thanks to our Huan Huan!! always so thoughtful, who bought us chocolates and love letter haha
thanks for making FA like me so happy LOL

Some of our best shots hehe
got a balloon from HSS's V-day event :D



haha, like those music videos....

kay I might not have very good English to describe how fun our day was, but I just enjoy being around this 3 girls, hehe My 4-In-Love LOL These girls can just make me laugh non-stop, I'm a very lucky girl to have them. Wish I could do the same for them, will try to be more funny next time LOL and the best part is always how we share our thoughts and experiences in life without holding back. I've learned so much from you girls haha Love you all!! Muacksss....


More photos on the Drinks and Food from Artease

Hot Double Chocolate -- SGD 4.10
Earl Grey Soy Milk Tea -- SGD 2.70
Milk Tea with toppings(pearl or jelly) -- SGD 2.60 
Double chocolate was great for people who dont fancy tea or coffee. 

Earl Grey Latte -- SGD 3.20
Thumbs up for this one, love the strong scent of earl grey tea


Waffles with Chocolate Syrup -- SGD5.50 per serving
gawd it's expensive weih!!!
for waffles, this one kinda failed coz it's not really crunchy and fluffy
the only thing i like is they used Wholemeal waffles if I'm not wrong. 

Nacho Cheese Fries -- SGD 3.50
This is yummy!! Love the strong flavor of spice and cheese, together with crunchy potato fries. 

And there you have it...our fun chillax day at Artease
it's a great place for friends to hang out, chat while sipping some coffee. I heard their cakes and brownies are great too, will probably try them out next time.

MOF My Izakaya @ Bugis & Hawker food @ Chinatown Complex

Was suppose to post all d foodie items during recess week, but potato me, forgot to bring my external disk back to MY haha...since there's some time now, I'll just post some first...

this was long time ago....before CNY, me and my girls went out for shopping at Bugis and Chinatown. After few hours of non-stop walking, decided to have afternoon tea time at MOF's My Izakaya @ Bugis Junction. I remember we had burger for lunch before that, but for girls, there's always a space for devilish desserts. Gosh they have so many menus over here, and a rather thick one for desserts, makes your mouth water at the sight of the pictures. 

Japanese Chocolate Fondue -- SGD17.80
rather unique one, usually the chocolate fondue has a lot of  marshmallows and fruits like grapes, apples, strawberries... But this one uses peaches and apricots. and there's a range of sweet treats like sweet potato buns, riceballs, some sticky and starchy bun. 

not to say I hate it, but it's a little bit too heavy since there's a lot of starchy items
and the chocolate wasn't rich enough
still prefer the Au Chocolat one.

Strawberry Pancake -- SGD 5.50
this is nice! simple, sweet and slightly sour
with the strong fragrance of butter and the fluffy texture
i like how they are really generous with the strawberry jam

Table for 3

with dimple girl....hmmm seems like i have a super CETEK dimple haha

Btw, the restaurant has an extensive menu, from main course, savory snacks to all sorts of iced and hot desserts. Though our visit here is not as good as we thought, we're still feeling hopeful for other delicious and unique items on the menu!

Next, we continued with our journey to Chinatown area...
as mentioned in my previous post, I really love the bustling atmosphere




Go try out this Grilled Squid!! It's at one of the narrow streets next to Chinatown complex, with many stalls lined up. It's awesome!! Fresh and Crunchy, and the grill scent lingers in your mouth!

Our dinner at Chinatown Complex Food Center
Fried Oyster -- SGD 4
Jui Kuih (Rice cake) -- SGD 0.50 per piece
and Char Kuay Teow (forgot price)
Thumbsup for the oyster and kuayteow!!

So yea, that's pretty much for what we had, sweet treats and hawker food!! Indulgence first, followed by awesome flavors...more food from SG coming up!

Birthdays....

A post dedicated to all the birthday girls haha....
That's just too many people's birthday in 2 months!!
and they are all turning 21 yo!
the Key Age to the Adult World

Econs Lenglui, ok i might not be in that category haha :D

First Up -- Wanqi
our big sister of econs gang!! in fact not just econs gang, she seems to be the big sister of the msa freshies, that explains how caring and helpful she is. Her birthday was during the sem break, so it's a post-birthday celebration....surprised her outside the lecture theater haha, and sing when everyone's around LOL
It's a simple one, but hope she likes it.



Second, our 4-In-Love 24 hours ON 7Eleven -- Huan Huan!
sad that we failed to surprise her TT.TT
even after we formed alliance with her bf, we still failed :(
It so happened that she just walked into us haha
Yeap, she just walked into us in the wide and big Orchard area...
What a fate haha...
anyways it was kinda fun, to travel to the beautiful and bustling Orchard area to surprise her.
Beautiful lights and lively atmosphere around :D



Had a small chit chat and game session with the girls at Oriole Cafe and Bar @ Somerset 313
beautiful cafe, situated outdoors, looks awesome at night...definitely a great place for a girls night out.
what we did? hmmm updating each other about CNY, discussing how our surprise plan failed, laughing with no reason, more laughters, ....and finally, some caffeine and alcohol, perfect for a 21st bday isn't it? LOL



Short Review on the drinks we had at Oriole Cafe and Bar:

Sex on the Beach -- SGD 12
sweet and tangy

Bloody Mary -- SGD12
lol i didn't know this was suppose to taste like veggie juice haha...
i like tomatoes but just find it very strange without the texture of squashed tomato haha

Here comes the caffeine part, check out the beautiful latte art
Left : Cafe Latte -- SGD 5.50
Center: Mocha -- SGD 6.00
Right: Mint Mocha -- SGD 6.00
Small cup on top: Espresso -- SGD 4.00
I had the mocha, which I think taste really good, strong cocoa flavor with smooth texture. The mint mocha taste similar, can't taste much of mint. Espresso was nice, but my girls don't seem to enjoy it haha...

the cafe was really a cosy and beautiful place to hang out with friends on a busy friday night.

Next, our Toddler of 4inLove -- AhBian Limin :D
notice I used toddler, not baby haha...coz toddler are much more childish and annoying ahhahahaha
no worries dear, we enjoy ur childish acts.
so for her birthday, it was a 2 part plan
first, to act like we simply celebrated her birthday 
coz this girl has been reminding us to celebrate her bday since the beginning of sem 1!! 怕死我们不会庆祝酱LOL
so yea we tried to make everything look like as if we're trying to ignore her bday (but not overdoing it)
just sing her a song outside LT, and take photos...no presents, no cards, NOTHING ELSE. 
and when she goes out in the evening...the second part comes :D



Ta-dah....we secretly pasted our wishes on her door when she went out
yes 就是要让整个Block13都懂是他的生日!
and hope she gets surprised when she comes back.

after the surprise, here comes our part 3 haha....
Watched Conjuring in my super-dim-and-lifeless room
while sipping beer!! Yeap 21st is all about alcohol for us hahahaha....

Conjuring was good, like really!!

coming up, ShiYien our sweet and caring lady...
well due to our super busy days, we decided to celebrate her bday early, ON V-Day!
and it's like a collab haha
we econs coursemates were in charge of decorating her room, while her boss OG brings in the cake.
bought balloons, blew them, draw on them....write on them...and pasted lots of post-it notes on her wall...
wishes and nonsense altogether hahahahah....

Balloon of Econs gang, drawn by ME! haha it's an achievement coz I suck in drawing most of the time. 

Happy with our masterpiece haha

Finally, the last Feb Baby
Our Angrybird Princess JingYi!!
her birthday turned out to be the toughest to plan, coz we pretty much ran out of ideas...
so what u gonna see, is a combination of all the ideas above LOL

 ta-dah, surprise when she opens the door in the morning!!
Me and Limin went to her room in the middle of the night to paste the notes
Effin scared that she'll suddenly open the door and see us..
Btw, my second Balloon Drawing heheheheh....

Part 2, Angry Bird themed celebration at Uni
hehe 2nd surprise, we pretty much showered her with angry bird haha...
this time, we have almost the whole econs family to sing her bday song and write her bday messages.

Angry Bird mini cakes from Polar (Jurong Point)
