Greenwood Fish Bistro

If there’s one thing that me and Kris have in extreme common, it’s the fact we love seafood. Nothing beats ending the week with a great sashimi or fresh oysters. My birthday this year was on a Monday, and Bubs brought me to Greenwood Fish Market the Sunday before.

The place gets pretty crowded towards late evening, so best to make reservations! 

I LOVE THE INTERIOR DESIGN! Pardon me, really too cute.



Apparently, he knew about the place from Straits Times. The Greenwood Fish Market and Bistro was having the Oyster festival that month, for the fourth year. Although we love oysters, we really have no inking at all on what the different oysters are, how to choose, how to eat it correctly and so on. Everyone have their own tastes and likings, and for me, I personally prefer the creamier ones. I eat my oysters as it is, without anything else. Bubs eat his with Tabasco and lemon.


Super alot of utensils because we ordered all the different food. Chopsticks for our sashimi platter,  soup spoon for our lobster bisque, knife and fork for the main course, and the smaller fork for the oysters.

We ordered the Baron Point – big oysters, with my finger at the side for comparison, and the Golden Mantle – I really liked these! Very creamy and sweet. Yay to the good recommendation from the waitress! Baron Point is $7 per oyster and Golden Mantle was $4 per oyster during the Oyster Festival.



(The Oyster was as big as my finger! Boy, it was really great to slurp it down!)


Lobster bisque soup, 8/10.
The bread provided complimentary from the restaurant was…. extremely hard. Even for bubs who hardly ever complains about his food.


Sashimi platter! All our favorites…. and really fresh!


We ordered the lobster with Foie gras white onion tart. The lobster was pretty average, but the main reason why we chose this dish was for the pan seared foie gras. I was craving for this for the longest time already!

Foie gras with white onion tart was a little bizarre. A unique combination which did not go down too well for us. We separated the two, and we prefered it that way.

Will we return? Yes! And please do try to come on Tuesdays. They have a oysters promo on Tuesday at $1.50 each!

And do try the fish and chips too… I’ve read countless reviews that it is one of the best! We noted that there’s also some takeaway promotions for the platter and the fish and chips as well. $9.90 for fish and chips if it’s takeaway!

Taiwan – Taichung Day 1

There’s two countries in Asia I wouldn’t mind going over again and again – Japan for its culture, Taiwan for its various attractions. Japan had my heart since we visited Tokyo and Kyoto in October last year, and I’ve always wished we will be able to visit again, and see more of what the country has to offer.

In June, we went on a family trip to Taiwan, we visited Taichung and Taipei this time and I really, really loved Taichung.

We engaged a personal driver this time round, as we were travelling with Bubs’ family – a total of 6 adults and 2 children.

何东霖 (Mr Ho) +886921866490 –> Here’s his details in case you guys need a driver! Friendly young chap, good automotive skills. Not much of a chatter, but really pleasing to look at. One thing to take note is that he isn’t that well with time management, i.e he doesn’t give clear instructions on how long can you stay at a particular place etc so that your next location will have ample time or so. Please manage your timing yourself! Hit him up on Line, hes very well connected to the network.

Our tickets were quite cheap – we flew via Scoot Airlines. I love taking mid line flights because we get to spend a full day the next morning upon landing at the destination. We were picked up upon arriving and drove straight to Taichung.

Our itinerary was a little messed up and there were several places we didn’t go (which was initially in my itinerary…) and honestly I was rather disappointed.

Initial plan was:

Day 1: 鹰哥老街, 三峡老街, 薰衣草花园, 高美湿地, 逢甲夜市

Day 2: 九族文化村, 日月潭 (Sun Moon Lake), 纸箱王 , 水舞秀

Day 3: 小瑞士花园, 青青草原 (清境農場)

However, when the driver fetched us, he told us that we were too early and all the stalls are still closed (We reached Taoyuan Airport at about 7am). Hence, we had a change of schedule and we headed to 九族文化村, 日月潭 (Sun Moon Lake), 高美湿地, 逢甲夜市.

We stopped by some random stall for breakfast, and why does even the most random food stalls have the best tasting food? And so damn cheap! 卤肉饭!

Took a toilet break and we ended up having coffee break at this really gorgeous place…


Finally made it to Formosan Aboriginal Culture Village after 3 hours of driving. Cost per pax is 780 NTW (Adults) and 580 NTW (Children). This place deserves a day on its own, the place is gigantic! I really wished we had enough time to explore the European gardens – the blooms were so lovely, but alas, time was not on our side and we didn’t managed to complete the entire amusement park. I was really so damn upset about not being able to visit the garden and take tons of photos! (Next time maybe?)

The map below should just show how vast and huge the place is! And there are loads of steps, so for those traveling with young children or elderly, please take note.

06a Formosan Aboriginal Culture Village (九族文化村) - A Theme Park That was More than Just a Cultural Village @ Sun Moon Lake [Taiwan] (Custom)


First stop; for the kids, take note that the games and UFO Catchers at this section is not included in the ticket for the entrance.

Sat on the Merry-go-round, and we were all really giddy after the rides. Almost puked after we came down!!


Weird aboriginal statues everywhere. Couldn’t resist snapping a picture. 11429813_926997914031024_179923434787000478_n11407215_927001690697313_4859565127249304425_n

THIS PIRATE SHIP, MEANT FOR KIDS. Height level: about 5 stories high. I came down from the ride with shaky hands and jelly legs.


The men sat on this, the drop was pretty impressive, but really, it all but lasted for 1 minute. Bubs said that the view up there was damn awesome! Unfortunately I am too scaredy cat to join….



As mentioned earlier… There’s really tons of walking in this place. Up down, left right blahblah. And like I also mentioned, there were a lot of rides I wanted to take, but didn’t because there was a whole big group of us, including elderly and children. We walked over to the Aboriginal Cultural Village, which was quite a bore… This part of the theme park is more educational, showing a lot of how the tribes lived, and how their houses looked like. Some of the houses reminded me of the house from the Little Red Riding Hood – “And I’ll Huff and I’ll Puff and I’ll blow your house down….”

The shuttle buses are another form of transport to replace the walking, we took the buses to the Aboriginal town, and to the Sun Moon Lake Cable station. 10847817_926998057364343_7940895640578796554_n11535837_926998770697605_1736295670903630435_n1609890_926998797364269_95340371230067446_n

Kiddos can rent costumes and take pictures. Wanted to do so but Bubs very harshly rejected. T_T

JUST LOOK AT THIS. TONS OF WALKING. TONS! Until I got so tired I didn’t want to hold my own bag anyway… Anyways, Bubs to the rescue! *Always my hero*10523866_926999027364246_6526191696756516162_n10424982_926998920697590_4699804333397027982_n 10532379_926998934030922_7809398365700289068_n1392020_926998390697643_7512141137958711916_n

There’s a small little temple (not exactly a temple, but they did have some offering table and joss-sticks…) and we gave our thanks for everything…

Seriously! Travelling with kids equate to having photo-bombers in EVERY picture!

If you are hungry, there is a Ramen stall here (Alight from the shuttle bus and its about a stone’s throw away from the bus stop). Food is pretty decent, although they do not serve any soft drinks/ water – they only serve black tea.

This black pork was the bomb! We chilled in the living room of the owner’s place, grabbed some drinks and beer before continuing… Again, I need to stress on the importance of time management. By this time, I was panicking on how are we going to take both the Sun Moon Lake Cruise and make it in time for Gao Mei Wetland to watch the sunset!

Bubs finally decided that we will skip the lake cruise, and drive on straight to the wetland, which was on the other side of Taichung… During the whole journey I kept whining about how we will be missing the sunset!! We finally reached the place at 645pm, when the sun was already in the midst of setting…

There were so many other people taking photos there- there was pre-wedding, and even graduation. I loved the series of photos we took here… The amazing thing is that the sand, doesn’t get stuck onto one’s feet! It gets washed off together with water immediately! 

Our last stop of the day was: Fengjia Night Market.

We had dinner at 陈妈妈 in Feng Jia, The 卤肉饭 is to die for!!!!

Some food I highly recommend in Fengjia Market:

– 臭豆腐





11351132_927001194030696_298220360013035068_n 11351147_927000897364059_2428823393058040726_n 11535792_927001104030705_4831213262775226952_n

We were all so tired we left the market at about 10pm… I was SO grouchy by then! The hotel was pretty decent, and I slept damn soundly that night! Moral of the story, try not to cramp as much as I did into one single day… Breakfast the next morning was very homely as well, while it is served in buffet style, all the dishes were all Taiwanese style, and we enjoyed it! Think, porridge with pork floss, and salted eggs!

I’ll recommend Kun Hotel for anyone who is looking for a night’s stay at Fengjia Market.

Whisk and Paddle – Cafe by the River

It’s been a long while since we got out for an all day brunch/ breakfast date. There was a period when all I wanted to eat all the time was all day breakfast.  Then the craze died off and I realised how much cheaper it was to DIY your own.

Anyhows, we decided on Whisk and Paddle for Saturday’s brunch… location chosen because Kris had to head to Punggol to settle some work stuffs. Friday night had us reading food blogs and trying to decide what to order. I love such nights where we stay in and cuddle up although most of such nights usually end up with me falling asleep first.

I am so thankful that it rained in the morning and the weather was very cooling (and not sunny). The place has really changed ALOT since the last time I was there for a photo shoot… Link here.  The place used to be a bicycle rental area! And I realized that both times I went Punggol Walk, both times it rained. image NATIONAL DAY FESTIVES!

I didn’t really took much pictures of the restaurant or the surroundings because

1. There were MANY people there

2. I was starving

3. We got one of the waitresses scolded because we wanted to change our seat from the smaller table to the bigger one which was meant for 4 pax. Thumbs up to the girl who agreed to move us, and neh to the older waitress who told her off. Honestly, I really think that one shouldn’t be scolding another staff in front/ within earshot of the customers! It made us felt a little awkward…. AraVIkYNtHQ8_vqypdobcfy33jkOcjRbiclZ3-gJsqkM




I’m a sucker for such ornaments… Time to Taobao! There’s also a play area for the kids… Saw 2 little kids befriend each other shortly after 5 minutes… SO CUTE!imageimage

I would have loved to sit here and take more pictures of the river/ the lavish greenery… But it didn’t look too comfortable with the high chairs and the small bar table.

We read online that the desserts were really good, but me and the bubs aren’t hardcore fans of sweets. And really, after eating the main course we were pretty full already.

Whisk & Paddle is really quite similar to many other cafes, offering the usual All Day Breakfast dishes, like Eggs Benedicts, waffles, pancakes & French Toast. They also offer an extensive range of pastas & pizzas, with one of their most notable dishes being their “Macaroni & Cheese”, I was rather tempted to try as it was highly raved online… . However, my appetite wasn’t feeling that great that afternoon and I always get sick of Mac and cheese after a few mouthfuls.


I thought that every table had a whisk as a display – signatory of the name, but was quite disappointed to realize our table didn’t had one. Did not quite made any sense to ask for one as well, so…

Bubs ordered the Whisk Breakfast Set, with sunny side up eggs, and we added on the Honey Baked Ham (not in picture). We thought it was a slice of luncheon meat!!! It really looked like one, but definitely tasted much better! I’ve never seen a piece of ham that thick from any other brunch places. Damage: S$19.80 for the set, and S$2.50 for the ham (which was defo worth it in my opinion). The Smoked pork sausage deserved some shout out too, and the bacon! Crispy, and full of drizzling oil and fats. I meant this in a good complimentary manner, but then again, not everyone would appreciate this. Thank goodness me and Bubs like it. We were quite disappointed that there were only 2 skinny pieces of bacon, after eating one piece each we wanted more. T_T


I had the Eggs Benedict with Smoked Salmon – Poached eggs with asparagus and hollandaise sauce on waffles. I liked the waffle, I liked the eggs, but putting these 2 together with smoked salmon was a little strange. The challenge came especially when cutting and eating it. I think I may like it more if I ordered it with streaky bacon/ honey baked ham… Why did I order Smoked Salmon when I am not a fan of Smoked salmon??? Damage: S$13.00 – reasonable. The table beside us had the Bacon & Scrambled Eggs on waffles, and I thought it looked quite disgusting… No offence. Not the most aesthetically pleasing dish.



For our drinks, we ordered the Passion Fruit Strawberry Italian Soda (I LOVE! Although S$5.90 might have been slightly overpriced, Bubs liked it too although he has hated passion fruit all his 32 years of living), not sure why was it served in a Somersby glass though. Bubs had the Iced Cappuccino. I did not try it but he finished it, so it couldn’t have been any bad.

imageMy Bubs – favorite companion ever.

Would I go again?

– Not really. All day breakfast aren’t really our cup of tea.

– Price was slightly on the high side, for the 2 drinks and 2 mains, it cost me S$55.

– Ambiance was nice, peaceful and great for a romantic day out, but only so if its not scorching hot. Its afterall a place that doesn’t seem to run on aircon – outdoor seating and fans for indoors.

Things to do in Batam.

Long holidays equate to me wanting to go on a short getaway trip.

Dating a military guy equates to difficulties in leave approvals.

Adding the two up, equates to us going to nearby countries – I am so glad Batam is just a short 30 minute ferry ride away. I can’t wait to explore more of such nearby islands together!

During our last trip there, we stayed at Batam View Resort, a quaint quiet place with its own private beach. It is just beside Montigo resort – Ferry departs from Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal, and goes to Nongsa Ferry Terminal where the shuttle bus from the hotel will pick you up. If you would like to be at a more centralized place, I’ll advise to stay in one of the many city hotels. My pick would be iHotel Batam, which is just beside Nagoya Hill shopping center – with numerous mani pedi nail salons, hair salons, spa and massage parlor (some of which are strictly for men only) as well as fake branded items. Oh, and not to forget, A&W! There’s a really huge supermarket there as well, and I really can go crazy buying all the snacks and indomee back home…

Itinerary for Batam:

Eat, sleep, chill, slack, swim, laze around, eat.


Batam View also has its own seafood kelong, I really wouldn’t mind eating with such a view everyday… take note that the seafood here is slightly more pricey than those outside, recommended to go to:

1. Golden Prawn Seafood Restaurant where the food is the cheapest among those I’ve ate at.

2. HarbourBay – my favorite! The view is to die for! Choose an outdoor seat, and watch the sun set as the day fades into darkness.


Here and There Chjimes

A new gem that me and the bestie chanced upon while searching for a place to chill after dinner at Hogs Breath at Chjimes.

Those who know me will know that once I love a place, I will want to keep heading back. Here and There at Chjimes is one of the places that deserves repeated patronage.

My second visit was with the fatty for our second anniversary advanced dinner.



I actually only ordered one glass of white wine, but they keyed in the wrong order and I was most gleeful when they gave the second glass to us on the house. Take note I love wines and Kris doesn’t. Teehee! Love places that value customer service…


Foie Gras and Wagyu Kushiyaki, a gorgeous piece of work that was an absolute delight.


Oysters which literally melted off in my mouth… I love anything oysters and this… I’m pretty much having an intense craving for it now!


Chicken skin Kushiyaki


Squid ink curry rice, this take on fusion was very refreshing.



My handsome date, thank you for always giving in to my nonsense and for loving me in a way no one has ever did.

Happy belated 2nd anniversary to us!
So glad I found this place that provides such an awesome ambience and with great food so reasonably priced!

Sushi is my one true love – Bay Sushi

Given that most of the dining restaurants in MBS (Marina Bay Sands Singapore) serve food that are slightly overprice, a bowl of Bak Chor Mee cost $8 at the foodcourt, Bay sushi has easily became my to go place for food if I’m ever at MBS.

Popped by the place for lunch before going for the BMW Show, which was quite disappointing given the lack of hot sexy babes that I was expecting, and once again, the set meals that cost as low as SGD$14.90 makes me satisfied and happy.

A holiday is very much needed

Life can really be extremely unfair, I think I need some more luck. Reminder to self to pray more, hur.

I had planned to go on a holiday this week to celebrate, but well we couldn’t so I can only look at past pictures and wish work doesn’t have to be so tough and that I was born smarter. 😥

We didn’t have enough time to go to Jeju island, so Nami was the only “island” we went. A shuttle bus is actually available, pickup near our hotel – Insadong, but we didn’t know reservations were required because the guy at our hotel told us we can just purchase tickets straight from the driver.

The journey there without the shuttle was long and tiring – four train changes, one taxi and one boat ride. So please, do get the shuttle bus tickets and save yourself all the trouble.

From Myeong-dong Station, take LINE 4 train heading to the direction of Chungmuro Station to get to Dongdaemun History & Culture Park Station, then change to LINE 2 and take the train heading towards Sindang Station to get to Wangsimni station, then change to JUNGANG LINE and take the train heading towards Cheong-nyangni to get to Mangu Station, then change to KYEONGCHUN LINE and take the train heading towards Galmae Station to get to Gapyeong Station, which is the destination.

Once at Gapyeong Station, we took a short taxi trip (costs about KRW2500-3000) to get to the ferry wharf to Nami Island. And when we arrivee at the ferry wharf, we bought our “Entry Visa” to Nami Island which cost KRW8,000, including ferry to and from Nami Island and, of course, entry to Nami Island. We also bought the return shuttle tickets straight away so we wouldn’t miss the return bus again.

I was so tired by then! All the excitement kind of died off by then.






This is one of my favorite picture of us, taken by some random stranger on the ferry. I was trying to take a selfie using the monopod but he seemed to think I was having difficulties and offered help.


Trying to take a version of the follow me picture.




Yupp, that’s my manly boyfriend wearing my cateye shades.




Maybe it was because I was so hungry, I thought this sausage bought from one of the stores that does caricature was one of the most heavenly cuisine I’ve ever had in my life. Seriously, you guys might want to try it.


I am so thankful for a good friend for lending me his tripod and we took so many pictures with it! Also thankful for Riki who helped to photoshop the Ajuma out of our pictures.

All the pictures were taken with the Olympus EPL5 and  I’m so glad so many special moments were captured with it. It makes a huge difference snapping photos with a camera and an iPhone. Now i really want to go back to Bali and take those scenic pictures again…


I hate this pair of pants I bought from Bangkok. It makes me look so freaking fat! Someone actually commented on my facebook asking if i was pregnant. Wtf.

The return shuttle to Insadong was at 430pm, but we were already done by about 3pm and starving, so we decided to take the ferry back to the shuttle bus area and grab some pizza. Food really never tasted so good, but the pizza was too huge and we couldn’t finish it.


Nami Island is a beautiful place, and a great place for photoshoots. We drew and wrote on many stones in memoir for our trip, we laughed and kissed and chased after bunnies – I really wish for our next holiday to come soon.

Work is draining me of my brain juices.

Red Star

One of the greatest things I like about Hong Kong is the fact that there is abundance of great Dim Sums. I miss Hong Kong and the cold weather, the great food and the fact that there is no language barrier for me, and I miss having holidays. Will be doing up a travelogue for Hong Kong soon. Soon is the word because churning out blog posts is draining whatever little energy I have left after a long day at work.

I’m a sticky girlfriend. I love days when I get to wake up to see Kris’s face, and I love Sundays where we have no obligations to wake up and rush somewhere. Sometimes we wake up at 11am, and then realised that we are in time to make it to Red Star’s Dim Sum. Take note their last order is at 230pm, and by then a lot of the food has been sold out.

|Located at 54 Chin Swee Rd, 160054

Before I got together with Kris, I’ve never heard of Red Star. 126 and Swee Choon were staples however, because that’s where I used to head for supper after a night of clubbing. Red Star is a very vintage looking place, with the food being pushed out on their carts by the ladies who have been working at Red Star since its start. I loved the place since the first time I stepped in, about 1.5 years ago.


I don’t normally take a lot of pictures while I’m there, because the food’s usually so tempting I gobble them down the instance I grab them off the cart. I’ve always wondered why Dim Sum dishes need to come in set of threes, its a little too much especially when only two person is eating, no? There should be options for just 2 pieces…


Whatever it is, I’d strongly recommend this place – good food, retro and noisy ambience, value for money dishes, and a place that reminds me so much of the Dim Sum houses in Hong Kong.

Sushi Airways Sushibar

I lead a very simple life; I don’t have many close friends, but I am blessed, very blessed – because I enjoy myself every single time I hang out with those close friends of mine. What’s more, I have a very doting boyfriend who let me chose the meals whenever we are out for meals for the weekends.

Last week was Singapore restaurant week, and because I was too busy at work the week before, I did not had time to look at the list of participating restaurants, resulting in most of them being fully booked. Kris and I share common taste buds – we both love Japanese cuisine, we both love fresh oysters and steak, we both love seafood. One of the options available for Saturday lunch was Sushi Airways Sushi Bar, set menu was $25++, I think it was one of the cheapest menus for Restaurant Week.

Kris did not chose the out from the menu, he ordered separately from the ala-carte menu, which was a good thing, because even thought my set only had 5 types of sushi and 4 makis, the size of the sashimis and the rice were large enough to be split into 2 mouths. Each time I do that, Kris will go, “Never mind, you eat”. I think the best thing about being in a relationship is that you get to enjoy bits of life together. Things like sharing a sushi, licking off an ice cream cone together, waking up to a freezing leg because the other partner snatched off all the blankets… Each moment spent together is a memory. Okay, I digressed.

Anyways, the restaurant week menu came with the following options:


I took the sushi set, and I loved it.

Appetizers: Hamachi sashimi. There was so much fats in the 3 little pieces of sashimi and it made us such happy people. I need to widen my vocabulary so that I can have more words to describe sushi and sashimi besides the word fresh, but damn, these were so fresh! I want more! 3 slices can never be enough!


ImageJust look at it! LOOK!

Honestly, even though I’ve ate sushi so often, it’s hard to tell which type of fish I am eating. I was a little disappointed that there wasn’t any Hotate (scallops) in the set, but everything else made up for it. Kris thought that I’d not like the sea urchin because most places serve bad ones; but this, was so good that I almost didn’t want to share it with him. So smooth, so sweet; it was too damn good. And the baby squids! It was the first time I ate this, there were roes (?!) in the squid, and each bite down was a little bit of heaven bursting in my mouth!



For him, he ordered the pork cutlet rice; I did not take any pictures of it because well, that was not the main star of the meal. It tasted good though don’t get me wrong. The miso soup was also quite a great taster, wished my set came with the soup too.


Our last item of the meal was ice cream; mine had Koi Shiso liquor drizzled over the vanilla ice cream, while his set came with the plain one. I chose his, the liquor was extremely sour tasting and I did not like it. The vanilla itself was decent enough however.

The overall ambiance of the place was cool, parking was hard to find as there were so many cars and so little lots at Arab Street. The place is also very small, probably sitting a max of 15-20, so do make reservations. I’ll probably be heading back there again sometime soon to try out the other ala carte!

Oyster Bar and Grill Wharf

60 Robertson Quay

We had our Christmas Eve dinner here, couple dating with Wallace and Joanne. The oysters and foie gras were delectable, with the grilled foie gras making it to top 3 favorite list too.

We ordered a dozen of fresh oysters and subsequently order 4 piece of steam oysters.

Fresh ones ftw.



The Aussie beef Sirloin steak was melt in the mouth, with little walnuts (?) that we really liked. We ordered the 200g portion for sharing. Everything was so yummy I wanted more of everything! Maybe I was so soaked in the festive’s joys that everything was so happy and nice, even the shirt Kris wore so often on our special occasion dates made him look so charming. Hur hur.



I made Kris order the appetizer platter – ham and cheese. It actually came with Olives but we requested for it to be replaced with more cheese because we all dislike olives. We’re weirdos who like onions and garlics but not olives. How do you chew those things?



FOIE GRAS! TOP 3 LIST! I want some of these now! Even the yucky one from Savour will do for now!

We ordered both types available on the menu, pan seared foie gras with honey toast and the foie gras paste with bread. I think I died and went to heaven for that 10 minutes. 👼 the honey toast was extremely buttery and tasted of honey almost of perfection. The sauce drizzled at the side also tasted wonderful!


Hotate Mentaiko was decent, but not fabulous. Less praises can be given for the butter garlic rice, which I didn’t even order taking a picture of.



A toast of some Japanese wine which Kris ordered to cheers to the Christmas! I love my wines sweet and this was perfect for the evening.


I can’t wait to head back there again!

Thankew baby for always bringing me to have all this wonderful delectable meals and letting me order all the things I like! ❤️
