BlackBox SG – Formula 10.0.6 Review

I first noticed Formula 10.0.6 on a Priceline Pharmacy shelf in Brisbane because the brand’s bold words and bright perky packaging were hard to miss. I’m really ecstatic to try this oft-heard of skincare brand that has been around for 83 years. Thank you BlackBoxSG for allowing me to review FORMULA 10.0.6! Psst… don’t forget to apply my code ‘BBXJEAN10‘ at checkout forContinue reading “BlackBox SG – Formula 10.0.6 Review”

[SINGAPORE] 3 COFFEE JOINTS WHICH ARE AS HIPSTER AS IT GETS

What do I look for in an excellent coffee place? Ambience, brews and its insta-worthy quotient. Here are 3 Cafes I’ve been in love with for all the right reasons: [1] THE NEW BLACK Chatted briefly with the barista whose photograph I blatantly took while he was expertly manoeuvring complicated brewing equipment in The NewContinue reading “[SINGAPORE] 3 COFFEE JOINTS WHICH ARE AS HIPSTER AS IT GETS”

[MELBOURNE] oo6. 65. DEGREES CAFE

65 Degrees Cafe is a retail outlet for Gridlock Coffee specialty coffee roasters – masters of latte art and which offers a vast range of blends and single origin coffee beans. I wasn’t there for coffee, though, as I’ve only recently experienced some nasty side effects of caffeine overdose. Winter in Melbourne has its wayContinue reading “[MELBOURNE] oo6. 65. DEGREES CAFE”

[MELBOURNE] oo5. THE LEAGUE OF HONEST COFFEE

Darned long walk in the cold but all’s good after a cuppa flat white from Melbourne’s very own The League of Honest Coffee. Waking up from a 3 hour nap straight off a flight from Singapore to Melbourne (during which there’s no rest at all), the caffeine hit was my fire-place in subzero winter. AustraliaContinue reading “[MELBOURNE] oo5. THE LEAGUE OF HONEST COFFEE”

[MELBOURNE] oo4. WINTER SNAPSHOTS

What’s great in Melbourne, besides taking photos with koala bears and trying not to get ass-kicked by kangaroos in their local zoos? . Just walk around the central business district and you’ll be surprised by all kinds of quirky finds. Hipster cafes, graffitied streets, an alley dedicated to pub-crawlers, giant chess pieces for challenging an opponent you’veContinue reading “[MELBOURNE] oo4. WINTER SNAPSHOTS”

Chocolateria San Churro, Brisbane

Got a major kick out of having churros in Brisbane! Finally satisfying my cravings for both dark chocolate and cinnamon churros and where better to have these? Australia’s most famous chocolateria! 드디어 츄 로스를위한 갈망을 충족.  주말에 브리즈번에있을 때, 나는 다크 초콜릿에 담근 피 츄 로스를 먹었다. 호주에서 가장 유명한 츄 로스 카페입니다. 카페 근처에 호텔에서 숙박 할Continue reading “Chocolateria San Churro, Brisbane”

Passion Tree Cafe, Brisbane

It’s 36°C in Brisbane & I’m mad happy to find a cafè with shaved ice, desserts and cold cold coffee! Incredibly spacious with comfy throw pillows along wall benches, the cafè is popular amongst local Koreans and Asians. We found the place on a warm Tuesday afternoon, drawn to the sweet aroma of macarons. TheirContinue reading “Passion Tree Cafe, Brisbane”

Harbouring Intentions

Strangers of all levels are friends you’ve never met. At the idea of meeting new people I used to panic and worry about letting them come into my life, and for the past year, despite abundances of travel buddies, there are times I’d choose to explore new places alone. However I’ve come to be aContinue reading “Harbouring Intentions”

Sydney Opera House

Finally I have a picture at one of Australia’s most iconic 20th Century architectural masterpieces. A creative brainchild of architect Jørn Utzon, Sydney Opera House was built by detailed study of its topography and relationship to the harbour plus surrounding land marks. Construction of this grand soaring white roof sails along with its massive redContinue reading “Sydney Opera House”

Guylian Belgian Chocolate Cafè

Sydney is home to this restaurant slash patisserie bearing the name of a famed household chocolate brand. Guylian Cafè didn’t disappoint, probably as the tarts we ordered came at a time where we were too hungry to be picky. The glazed strawberries didn’t taste as fresh as I’d imagined. But for a quick spike ofContinue reading “Guylian Belgian Chocolate Cafè”

[MELBOURNE] oo2. Caffe e Torta

Upon touchdown I had managed to catch a good nights’ sleep (albeit, due to time difference, it was 3am Melbourne time when I finally crashed), and even woke up for hotel breakfast early next morning. Late afternoon, I ventured into the CBD area with hopes of locating Hardware Societe which was further out past Collins Street,Continue reading “[MELBOURNE] oo2. Caffe e Torta”

The Coffee Club, Perth

Enjoying my morning cuppa at The Coffee Club in Western Australia! One of the best flat whites I’ve had in a while, to be honest. The spacious cafè with complimentary WiFi and an extended all-day breakfast and salads menu is to die for. With so many stores, so much food and coffee to choose from,Continue reading “The Coffee Club, Perth”

Baker’s Terrace in Perth

Australia is my favourite stopover for minced meat pies and squishy meat pastries!! For my airport-bound breakfast, I filled my tummy with this juicy chicken and veggie pot pie. It wasn’t altogether to-die-for because seriously I’ve had better meat pies from Pie Face or downtown Brisbane’s steak pie joints, but I’m a happy girl afterContinue reading “Baker’s Terrace in Perth”

Swan Bells at Sunset

18 bells hanging in a 82.5m high campanile; The Bell Tower is breathtaking at sunset! Whoever says Perth is boring needs to visit these mind-blowing places. Based on the number of times I’ve been here this year, it’s almost my second home.

Mad about Churros

Rajissimo in Copenhagen has the best churros I’ve ever eaten, and I miss it soooo much! When I stumbled upon Churros Plus in Perth, the sugar-cinnamon aroma single-handedly overpowered all my will to eat clean.  The plus-sized made-to-order churros are filled to-the-brim with chocolate, vanilla or caramel flavours.   A little disturbed by how phallic-looking my foodContinue reading “Mad about Churros”

Cafe-hunting: Aroma Cafe Perth

The only downside to cafe-hunting overseas: I can’t drink more than a cup a day, or I’ll have to deal with serious sleep issues. Average service, average coffee… Great spot to chill in the CBD area, though. 3/800 Hay St Perth

Food Heaven: Brisbane

My favorite minced beef pie from Pie Face! Continental Breakfast with the crew Grocery loot to go with with my book and Aussie channels. Nibble fest.
