Start your day with Smoothie King!

Last weekend I had a healthy brunch at Smoothie King
It is located at CentrePoint at Orchard road
They served a pretty good food and smoothies
Needless to say, they served very little food but various type of smoothies
Every food and drinks stated how much calories you will be having
Which in fact is a good idea to know if you are on diet!
Portion of my wrap is pretty small but they are delicious
I love my "berry beautiful" smoothie
Start your day with a healthy meal and be kind to your body ;)

The Ultimate Christmas Gift

What did you get on a bright christmas day 2 days ago? Did you do anything with the love ones or perhaps with family and friends? How much did you enjoy the celebration? Anything special to share?

My friends and I had a fabulous champagne buffet at Grand Hyatt and it lasted til 10.30pm. With just champagnes, the night wasn't over so everyone head to Martini Bar just right in the building itself. Refused to join the crowd other places, we made a wise choice to just stick around. 

We ended the night at about 12.30am to go home and exchange gifts with my love one. To my surprise, my gift came in a rather smaller box so I assumed it could be a necklace from swarovski because I was teased that it's going to be a "Blue Box". Let alone the "Tiffany" haha. With loads of anticipation in my mind, I saw a print "Samsung". Speechless... 
Yes, I needed a new phone as my Blackberry had been acting weird and slow. I'm now very happy and thankful that I received a Samsung S3 as my Christmas gift.

So, are you happy with yours?

Awesome Spicy Food

Have you tried one hella spicy ramen? I mean amazingly spicy ramen! I'm not really a fan of spicy food but I guess it wouldn't hurt to have one once in awhile. Indonesia is famous for their spicy food and CHILLI!!!

My sister recommended me a place in Surabaya at Ramen 38@Sutos where they served spiciness from level 1-20. 20 being free food if you dare!!! As a beginner like myself, I had only level 1 and trust me, if your no good with spicy, try level 1 or nothing at all. Level 1 is pretty spicy to me and I couldn't finished the soup :'(. I refused to get tummy ache so I'd rather have their awesome ramen. Their ramen is handmade and its very delicious unlike normal "noodle".

If you happened to love spicy food and that you are in Surabaya (Indonesia), don't forget to drop by and have a bite!

Bling and Accessories

I love accessories but I do not own massively insane numbers of them. To me, accessories come and go. You will eventually get tired of one and wish to get a new one.

2 days ago, I bought a bangle and a ring from bling. Little did I know that bling is actually from Singapore and I got mine in Surabaya. Their accessories are affordable with the promotion for 50% second purchase.

I love my leopard ring!!!

Reebok RealFlex Breeze

I don't remember myself as a fit person nor do I go for a good simple work out. As far as I remembered, the last time I had my pair of running shoes was when I was in high school (I was never a runner material). I used to have white with blue stripes sport shoes from Reebok but I didn't know which shoes fitted for casual running. With today's technology, I guess all you need to so is to google for the ideal running shoes!

Yesterday, I got my second pair (of 20+ years of my life) from Reebok as well. I had my eyes on Nike but they didn't have my size anymore. I went to a few shops but without any luck, I picked out something from Reebok RealFlex edition. One of Reebok inexpensive running shoes.

I know many of you professional runners would prefer to recommend a good Asics but I find it a tad expensive for a beginner like me.

Wish me luck as I'll need the encouragement to really be fit from doing a little run. Now, who's up for a little beginner run with me? ;)

Dined-in at home ain't that bad when the man's the one who serves you the food! What more can you ask for when you have a good steak and a good red wine?

Cheers readers and enjoy your weekends too :)

The Little Rascals 1994

I don't know how many of you remember her as the 5 years old little girl named Darla in the movie The Little Rascals. I didn't know this movie until last year or probably few years back that I discovered it. Kinda late I know! I was then hooked by it and I'm still hooked! 

I love watching Brittany Ashton Holmes as Darla. She's very adorable that I thought perhaps she's the little sister of Katie Holmes and on second thought, I thought she's mini Natalie Portman. But then I went to google knowing that she's Brittany. 

Apparently she's not doing anything now. Of all the actors in the movie The Little Rascals, Bug hall is the only one that is still out and about. If you could remember, Bug hall is Alfalfa AKA Darla's Boyfriend ;). 

Sometimes I do wonder where are all these cute little actors and actresses from the early 90s. Please bring back the good old movies!!!

One of the most Expensive Hotel in USA

Have you ever thought or even dream about going to a place you want to visit and knowing that it is pretty much impossible to have that in your wish list? A place you would want to go to have some peace and tranquility in a desert maybe? A place where people called it "One of the top 20 most expensive hotel in America"? 

Oh boy, there were 20 to view alright and funny thing that this particular one had my full attention! As I clicked forward to the next few hotel but I still think this one is the best out of all.

Aman Resorts offers guests around the world to explore their 23 Amazing resorts from East to West. From Indonesia to America. There are:

  • 5 Aman resorts in Indonesia
  • 3 Aman resorts in India
  • 2 Aman resorts in China
  • 2 Aman resorts in Sri Lanka
  • 2 Aman resorts in America
  • 1 Aman resorts in Morocco
  • 1 Aman resorts in Bhutan
  • 1 Aman resorts in Philippines
  • 1 Aman resorts in Thailand
  • 1 Aman resorts in Cambodia
  • 1 Aman resorts in  Montenegro
  • 1 Aman resorts in Laos
  • 1 Aman resorts in the Caribbean 
  • Last but not least 1 Aman resorts in France
I didn't know that Amangiri resorts are the same as Aman resort and as I was looking for more information, it also lead me to Aman resort. 

I was actually looking for a job at Aman resort 2 years ago and I met one of the manager. Indeed I fell head over heel at Aman resort.

Did you know that you need to do advance booking with Amangiri in order to actually GET to be one of their guest? Amangiri is located in a desert out of NOWHERE. Sounds creepy? But I'd die to experience staying there! Wouldn't you? C'mon, even Brad pitt and Angelina jolie were there to enjoy their romantic getaway. I guess if you weren't a superstar, you wouldn't be in the top priority list (OH NO). 

Amangiri offers ONLY 34 suites. 13 Desert view suites, 14 Mesa view suites, 1 Terrace suite, 2 Mesa pool suites, 2 Desert pool suites, Girijaala suite and Amangiri suite. It is way awesome that this resorts provides both Air-Conditioning for summer and under-floor heating for the cooler months. It reminded me of the month (march) year 2012 I went to grand canyon and believe it or not, it was at least -3 degree and YES, I was freezing my tootsie out there where the local people were dressing in super comfy and thick jacket and I was with just a normal jacket. They were at least 3 times my size!

So, If you had the chance to "Wonder", where would your dream hotel/resort be?

Reasons Why Teas Are GOOD For You

I'm a tea lover but I do not have many types of tea nor are they fancy expensive teas. I have caffeine-free and normal black tea. In the morning, I'd make myself a cup of Earl grey, Oolong, Asian white green tea or Orange Pekoe. I usually drink 3 times a day. I consumed more caffeine-free such as Japanese green tea and Fruit herbs infusion. As for the afternoon, I'd go for Asian white green tea by Lipton. 

I've always known that teas are good for our body and health but I'm curious as a cat to why they are good. Recently I found an article tea, health and some goodie good stuff. I hope my research is good enough for you guys to start drinking tea ;). Here are the reasons why you should start now!

My ZoukOut Tickets

Today, I went to Zouk to collect the tickets.
 I'm very excited and yet afraid to get all tired.

I hope there won't be any rain tho because 2 years ago at Zoukout, there was a tiny bit rain but again, it was annoying. 

I can't wait to see Calvin Harris with his amazing tracks and partying with my friends. 

Anybody else going for Zoukout this coming saturday? and who's your favorite DJ?

Front - Back - Left - Right : PAY ATTENTION!

I don't know if it's something to laugh or to feel pitiful or OH MY GOD! on the water walkway. Just few days ago, I met my friend at scott road as she was doing her manicure. 

On our way back towards orchard road, there was this look-alike-water fountain-walkway. If you did not pay much attention to the road, you'd think it is just a walkway like every ground (if you know what I mean. You'd thought you could put one of your foot a step towards it. 
We saw this lady, she could be either sleepy or playing with her phone too much she didn't pay attention to the road or she wasn't looking at all - whatever her reasons yeah! I was chatting with my friend while walking and we heard a splash so we both looked to the front and saw this lady's foot was in the water!!! Of course everyone was looking... DUH! I mean who wouldn't be able to see the difference between ground w/ or w/t water? Especially one that is so still and never move an inch LOL - I'm teasing you lads -.-'. 

Ok, We didn't mean to be rude or mean or anything. Whoever created that magnificent decoration outside the new mall at scott road. Both my friend and I had a really good laugh and guessing how and why it happened. Whatever it was, it made our day ;). 

Somerhalder or Crawford?

Now Now, WHO'S A FAN??? Girls are drooling over Ian and Chace because of their blue eyes or the similarity of their face? I first watch Chase Crawford's on gossip girls, YES, I think he is hot. Who could resist that blue eyes? But the more I watched gossip girls, the lesser I find him hot. I guess his role in gossip girls are fading away and I find that his role is getting boring. 

I used to think Ian and Chace are both the same guy. You gotta admit they have the same brows and eyes (blue), definitely not the lips because Ian has got a better lips (Sexier)!!!

Last night as I was watching "The rules of attraction - 2002" starring James Van Der Beek, Shannyn Sossamon, Jessica Biel, Kate Bosworth and "Ian Somerhalder". It got me guessing again as to who that would be, Ian or Chace? The thing about Ian, he has a very charming yet sexy stare in his eyes even in the movie. You can tell he's a strong character despite the character being gay. To me, Chace is rather a softie (even in gossip girls -.-'') and has a calmer character.

So, who do you fancy most? Are you a Chase fan or Ian? Who do you think has a better - killer look? I'm definitely IAN SOMERHALDER's fan!

A New Comedy - Mike & Molly

I've spent a lot of time catching up Mike & Molly. A 30 minutes TV series Chuck Lorre production company created by Mark Roberts brings back a good comedy. 

Melissa McCarthy and Billy Gardell are both an excellent actors with great sense of humor in the show. Along with Katy Mixon (Molly's sister) and Louis Mustillo (Molly's soon to be step father). They are all a memorable actors in the TV show!

Mike and Molly were struggling to lose weight and so they joined the over-eaters support group and there they fancied each other. 

Mike had a hard time asking her out in the beginning and succeeded with the help of a friend. Mike and Molly's journey began from season 1 up to season 3. 

Mike with a funny yet annoying mother were giving a hard time to Molly and Molly was struggling to get a long with her. While Mike was struggling to stay at Molly's because of her mom and sister's quirkiness around the house. 

If you love TV shows like The Big Bang Theory and Two and a Half Men, don't miss out on Mike and Molly as they will bring you a whole new world of Comedy!

Breaking Dawn Part II

Today, I finally had the chance to watch Breaking Dawn II. I don't know why people are so crazy over "Twilight" and yet the last saga has a pretty slim rate. IMDB stated 5.9 out of 10, I'd have given a lower point because I don't find it entertaining but I was bored to death.
