One night in Singapore

I always love Singapore. It is not just about the shopping but there are so many things that Singapore has to offer. I’ve done Singapore on a budget, as well as splurging all my salary. Whatever your budget is, Singapore will always be enjoyable. This visit was a brief one. A one night stop before continuing the next journey. A transit.

Mimi and Rapik will be in Singapore until Monday

 

Aslan and I decided to stay at 5.Footway Inn Project Bugis where the guys stayed for their holiday.

Our usual preference of hostel in Singapore is Footprints but since they do not have a private double bed room, we opted for 5.Footway Inn Project Bugis. The guys tried out the 4 bed dorm before moving to Footprints Hostel at Perak Road.

When Aslan and I saw our room, we couldn’t believe our eyes.

It is a Private Deluxe Double Bed Room with ensuite bathroom. At $54 per person a night, it is cheaper than Hotel 81. Aslan slept on the couch while I took the more adventurous option.

Luckily, the bed could take the toll of my weight, therefore, no accident. It is quite a height but definitely an experience.

The ensuite bathroom is just to the left from the entrance. Really basic bathroom with a minimalist design.

We had an enjoyable stay at 5.Footway Inn Project Bugis. The location is perfect although the nearest MRT is a bit of a walk. But when it comes to culture, food and entertainment, just stone’s throw away.

Blog more soon!

The theme for this Christmas is proudly brought to you by neon orange!

Sorry for the long title, a post as exciting as this receives a very outrageously long one. When it comes to neon, I am a total sucker for orange.

The moment I saw Sereni & Shentel new neon collection for Kawaii Christmas, I just couldn’t resist.

The BFF headband is definitely one of a kind! Braids and gem stones, can’t get any more S&S than that!

 

S&S BFF Headband in Orange and Orange Queen I got for 50% off at their Christmas booth at the Spring!

At the same time, S&S also launched their limited edition headband organizer, a collaboration with Gin & Jacqie. Being the headband addict as it is, of course, I must own one. At RM60, this baby will keep your headbands organized, whether in the luggage or the hotel room.

The uber cool and eco friendly packaging…

I love the playful font. And do visit Gin & Jacqie website for more goodies!

 

Made out of nylon denier, it is durable and easy to clean. Regardless of the weather, this baby will make sure you S&S treasures are safe and sound from the elements.

 

s&sno4

Compact and light, the ideal headband organizer for the jetsetting headband addict fashionistas.

 

This is a must buy for the S&S headband addicts. Why? It could neatly store up to 16 S&S headbands! Bless their soul for coming up with this little miracle! Teehee!

 

s&sno5

8 S&S headbands in each compartment.

I am tempted to bring 16 but since I have a certain baggage allowance, I think three S&S headbands should be enough for my travel this Friday.

All neatly stored and I don’t have to worry about my babies getting crushed in the luggage. How convenient is that???

Back to packing my bag. Will blog more soon!

Love,
E.

P/S: Do check out Sereni & Shentel + Bower Haus Christmas booth at the Spring. You won’t regret the trip!

A-Wet Thai Restaurant, 4th Mile, Kuching

One destinations the dudes and I love is Thailand. For our 2011 divacation, we went to Phuket. As for 2013 divacation/hens escapade, we have chosen Bangkok. We have missed Thai food so much, we decided to check out this new restaurant at 4th Mile, A-Wet Thai Restaurant.

Located just before Boulevard Hypermall (Hard to miss when there is a big sign just outside the restaurant), A-Wet offers authentic and delicious Thai cuisines at an affordable price.

Before the food arrived, posed for the camera.

Before I show you what we had, the total cost for five persons is around Rm177 or an average RM35.40 per person. It was a satisfying meal, so, no one really complained about the price. In that sense, A-Wet is reasonably priced.

We officiated dinner with a hot and spicy seafood red tom yam. It was at the right level of spiciness and tasted good.

 

We waited less than 10 minutes before the flood of dishes came to us.

 

awt3

Pandan Chicken. I didn’t have this but from what I could tell from the look on the guys faces, they enjoyed every single piece.

 

awt4

Pineapple fried rice with seafood. In Thailand, it is a bit hard to get this dish because it usually has pork in it.

 

awt5

Young mango salad. I love this dish most. Then again, I am hopeless when it comes to this sort of dish. Hahaha.

 

awt6

Deep fried fish in Hot and Spicy Thai sauce. The guys favorite.

 

awt7

Paku Pakis with Tau Cu, another favorite of ours.

 

The dishes were so spicy, we couldn’t help sweating as we had dinner. Keeping slim while we ‘farm’ our body. Hahaha.

awt9

We had no plan to order dessert but the staff recommended this durian and jackfruit popia.

awt10

Jackfruit is the orange one while yellow is durian. A lovely treat, the durian and jackfruit were creamy to say the least! And the popia was crumbly. A good combo though.

 

My friends and I had a lovely time at A-Wet Thai Restaurant, definitely coming back for more!

Love,
