10 SECRETS TO GOOD SKIN

Shh… I’m letting you guys in on what I do to keep my skin minimally flawed and young-looking. I’m not without vices – my lifestyle certainly does a great deal of harm to my skin. Constant travelling, difficult climates, dry-air in airplane cabins, late nights, sleepless days, junk food and irregular meals, social drinking and partyingContinue reading “10 SECRETS TO GOOD SKIN”

[DIARY] True Stories of Lucid Dreaming and Sleep Paralysis

Lately I’ve been experiencing lucid dreaming, in which I find myself in total control of when or where I get to cease a dream. It’s been contended that this period of dreaming is not a state of sleep but a period of wakefulness. I beg to differ. How could a wakeful phase occupy such an extensive period of restfulness?Continue reading “[DIARY] True Stories of Lucid Dreaming and Sleep Paralysis”

[SYDNEY] BRUNCH AT SYDNEY FISH MARKET

Australia’s Home of Seafood, the Sydney Fish Market, is apparently the “…largest market of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere and the world’s second largest seafood market in terms of variety outside of Japan.” Brunch after touching down in Sydney and meeting up with Cassandra (yay!) was a seafood platter for one (but damnnnn lookContinue reading “[SYDNEY] BRUNCH AT SYDNEY FISH MARKET”

TOKYO DIARIES 東京旅日記 IV

Friends, you know who you are and this is for you. I’ve always read about Chiba Prefecture in Murakami’s works and although Narita isn’t my favourite Japanese tourist spot, there is so much to see and shopping to do!

Dolce Tokyo, SG

Had the worst Matcha Latte in my entire life at Dolce Tokyo, 313 Somerset, this evening. Beautiful place, but terrible matcha latte – such a disappointment and shame to claim its affiliation to Tokyo! The drink was so diluted and watered down that the matcha powder wasn’t fully dissolved, so it tasted so much likeContinue reading “Dolce Tokyo, SG”

HONOLULU COFFEE 第2日目には私たちは昼食に寿司を持っていた後に、私はホノルルカフェでコーヒーを楽しんだ。 Afternoon coffee at Honolulu Café after a hearty sushi lunch. This pretty café from Hawaii is located at the food and restaurants level of Diver City, Odaiba.

Hoshino Coffee

Post-workout dinner in which the matcha souffle we were looking so forward to turned out not so fantastic whilst the main dishes were amazing. Whenever I’m back in Singapore, enochlophobia kicks in. Peak hour dining, rush hour traffic, a Friday night out – tell me how I can avoid the crowds please! Thankfully my usualContinue reading “Hoshino Coffee”

Haneda Tokyo – May ’13

Raiding the local supermarkets is a no-go action in Japan! So well-stocked such that the food&beverage galore is every Japan-enthusiast’s worst nightmare… you’ll wanna cram the entire store into your baggage home.
