Oriental style cafe with western breakfast.

Had very breakfast at a very nice and calming cafe this morning. Realised that the Japanese and Koreans really love their coffee and the take a lot effort to build nice cafes so customers can enjoy their meal and have some relaxing time in between a busy day. Really liked this place and it’s my first time here. Will definitely come back. Anyone with nice places to recommend?

First Lou Hei

Joined company festive celebration to bring good luck for the year ahead. They say the higher you tops the dish, the more luck you’ll get. There is also a variety of condiments that go with the dish and the waitress said a auspicious phrase each time she pours a condiment into the dish. Then I was told they will receive an Ang pow. This is the first of many Lou Heis to come. Better get in shape soon and eat in moderation. BTW, the rest of the food is fantastic.

Tea break

Was walking around and decided to sit down for a cuppa. Didn’t want to spend too much on drink and decided to visit a food centre. Went for the healthier option or not sugar and the taste wasn’t too bad. Suppose the milk didn’t really make it any much healthier but I suppose it’s a start. Really hope to be able to do the right thing and get in shape soon. Second health check is coming up soon. Sigh….

Disappointing lunch

Wanted to have a good lunch before lectures on a Sunday. Decided to revisit a place which had very good tendon. Unfortunately, I was sorely disappointed with the way things have changed. There used to be two types of free flow pickles but it’s down to one now. The chawanmushi has also been downsized to a miserable tiny tea cup size. Tried their signature tencha, which is some deep fried seafood pancake on rice and you can eat three ways with dashi soup. The pancake didn’t have any great taste and they used frozen vegetables for the pancake as it was mushy. Didn’t even want to finish the rice and decided to finish the pancake cos it had seafood in it. Not going to go back again.

Hearty comfort food.

Back to one of the cafes I shown earlier in my blog. Wanted to have something light rather than the usual heavy breakfast. Think ham and cheese croissant should be light enough. Coupled with flat white without sugar although a log black would have been a healthier alternative. I suppose it’s better to take things one step at a time rather than go cold turkey, which could definitely cause a lot of rebound.

Have a great weekend

Prepping for the upcoming feast.

Festive season is coming. Decided to try dieting by eating less. This is my lunch. Trying out to see if I can have rolled oats only for dinner later. Health has not been kind to me since the year began. Down with flu and severe backache. Hopefully I can bounce back and live a more healthy life for the rest of the year.

Back!

Finally back at work today after unwell for so long. Had a afternoon meeting with the team at a very lovely cafe and store. The salesperson was quite keen to sell her plates which were quite nice but not cheap. Didn’t need anyway.

Ambience of the cafe was nice and the deco was really good. Forgot to take a pic of the cappuccino which was pretty good as well. Still searching for that perfect cup of coffee in Singapore. Any recommendations?

Out for a scroll

Wasn’t feeling too well the past two days. Decided to come out to look around rather than being stuck at home. Came to the new terminal and wasn’t impressed. It was quite small and looked like the old Budget terminal which has gone through extensive cosmetic surgery. Don’t think this place can service a lot of passengers but good enough to meet the current needs.
