#omgkimis25 @ The Laneway Market (Tanjong Katong Road)

So on the seventh of August, I turned 25. To celebrate my mid-life crisis, I had a Florals & Pastels themed birthday party at the popular The Laneway Market at Tanjong Katong Road. The second level of The Laneway Market is huge and is absolutely perfect for parties and events. It held about 60 of my guests very comfortably!

The Cold Pantry @ Rangoon Road

Undoubtedly one of the most popular waffles in Singapore, pictures of the famed Chocolate Root Beer Waffles at The Cold Pantry have invaded my instagram feed time and again and I've always wanted to try their Thai Milk Tea soft serve! So we made our way here after brunch at AEIOU, only to find out that the Thai Milk Tea soft serve wasn't available until further notice...

So anyway, we've heard that the Chocolate Root Beer Waffles ($12.50) doesn't really have much taste of root beer but I think they've worked on the recipe because I can taste root beer in the waffle! The waffle is dense and fluffy and I really enjoyed that subtle root beer flavour with the cold charcoal vanilla soft serve. That root beer drizzle, though, really does not have a trace of root beer. Oh, and we added their handmade honeycomb crumble ($1.20) to make the waffles prettier!

AEIOU @ King George's Avenue

It isn't difficult to locate AEIOU but the absence of a signboard means that you need to know exactly how the place looks. The tell-tale signs are vintage chairs and metal grills on the outside of the cafe and you just can't miss those eye-catching words "Oriental Antique House"

You can be sure of the quality and freshness of the cakes at Flor as they are freshly baked daily and are crafted using only the finest ingredients sourced from all over the world.

Legendary Hong Kong @ Jurong Point

Legendary Hong Kong has been around for more than a year and its a shame that I've only just found out about it, especially when I stay near Lakeside. This huge casual joint is reminiscent of those popular cha chaan tengs in Hong Kong and that was what struck me first as I walked into the place. It might not be the easiest place to locate as all the signboards are bright and flashy and there are a ton of them but that area is dressed to look like the streets of Hong Kong and I think that does add points to the ambience of LHK. The brainchild of a Hong Kong-er, the food here is as authentic as it gets, and possibly the closest you can get to Hong Kong

GARDEN BEATS is Singapore's first ever electric picnic. Inspired by Piknik Electronik, this music festival attracted huge crowds that came to bask in the sun and music. Armed with picnic mats and all sorts of snacks, like-minded folks were all over the place swaying to the music or just chilling
