Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of city life is Cakes Literally, a humble cake cafe that serves up honest and yummy cakes baked from the heart. Carissa, the owner, told us that she picked this spot along Owen Road as she adored the serenity of the area. We couldn't agree more as there is something really charming about this quiet stretch of shophouses

The Bravery

 photo PA069090.jpg
After a disappointing brunch, X asked what my other choices were initially besides The Coffee Shot. And I told him The Bravery was one of them so we decided to head there. We hopped into the car and I tried locating the place but after a ten seconds drive, we were at The Bravery already! Haha it was quite funny. Do look out for the cafe as there isn't a signboard!

The Coffee Shot

 photo PA069064.jpg

I was assigned by X to find a place for Brunch and I chose The Coffee Shot as it was relatively near to Bugis, where we were heading to afterwards. However, this is quite possibly the worst brunch I've ever had in Singapore.

W39 Bistro & Bakery

Good news have finally arrived for the westsiders. For a long time, the only places in the west where we could get a decent brunch and a good cup of coffee are Bukit Timah and Holland Village. And one of the common complaints were that there's nothing to eat in the west. W39 has brought hope to the western part of our sunny island!

Mooncakes from Antoinette

Sponsored Post

 photo P9107948.jpg
We may have become so accustomed to mooncakes being associated with the Chinese culture and traditional ideas that we think that it's a little out of the ordinary to purchase mooncakes from a French patisserie. But I can't begin to tell you how much you're missing out on if you don't get your hands on these mooncakes! They are indeed out of the ordinary, they are extraordinary.

Signature Stone Restaurant

Media Invite

 photo P8247180.jpg

Ariel, the owner and chef of Signature Stone Restaurant loves cooking and experimenting in the kitchen. Her idea of a hotstone restaurant stemmed from her family's love for claypot rice. Ariel has noticed that the bottom of the rice cluster in claypots is usually charred. She then discovered that bibimbap which is served in a hot stone pot does not have that problem. Hence, Ariel decided to set up her own hot stone restaurant that boasts both traditional and western fusion delights

Burano - Pretty Coloured Houses & Best Risotto in Venice

 photo P5251245.jpg

X planned an early day and he refused to tell me where we were going except that we were going to eat the best risotto. So we headed out pretty early and took the water taxi. After quite a long ride, we finally arrived at Burano! I was so mesmerized and so happy! X knows that I love colourful things and he knew that I'd love this place. I was really surprised and elated. Burano is insanely pretty!

Staycation @ Pan Pacific Orchard

Sponsored Post

I honestly think that the location of Pan Pacific Orchard is impeccable. It gives you an impression of being away from city life but yet, it is actually in the heart of the city. It's only a short three to five minutes walk to Lido or Pacific Plaza. It's incredibly convenient! You can go shopping, catch a movie or go to the supermarket anytime!

La Ristrettos

Hidden on the eighth level of Novena Medical Centre is this quaint little cafe. X has just started working at P&G and his manager introduced him to this cafe! He brought me there after I popped by for lunch one day. La Ristrettos is considered to be really hidden because unless you know that it exists, I guess you'll kinda never realise that theres a cafe there! Its located in the middle of a long quiet stretch. However, as secluded as it is, the cafe was full when we dropped by!

I love exploring new places, and especially, a hidden gem like Necessary Provisions!
