SYMMETRY CAFE x IKOI JAP RESTAURANT

Hello!!! 
Been neglecting this space quite abit because I've been having so much fun over this long weekend!!
So let's start with Friday first. It was our National Day!!

Had a brunch date with Stef and Karx at SYMMETRY CAFE!

Been wanting to check out this place for the longest time! It's about 10-15mins walk from Bugis Junction~

Btw, I was so impressed with myself for waking up at 11am to prepare myself for our brunch date... Cuz I was out with Jingxuan, Louie & Alex and only slept at like 8am!??! So insane!!

Our Ootd! Karx was the one who asked us to wear white/red and she actually came in BLUE SKIRT. lol wth!!


Then I dropped by Jj's house to snooze and to catch the NDP Show together on TV!
We didn't head out to catch the fireworks cuz it's gonna be jam-packed outside and I really hate squeezing with people!! Also, we had already caught the NDP fireworks preview twice so we thought it'll be so lame of us to watch it the 3rd time. Lol 

Anyway!!!! I THINK THIS YEAR'S NDP SONG IS QUITE NICE?? 
The tune and all quite catchy lor. It's actually still stuck in my head now lol... Wooh ho-oh^oh! Wooh hooh!
I don't understand why so many Singaporeans condemn this song...


Then out for supper with Jj!

Boy it has grown so much!! I remember he was sooo tiny like a mouse when he was 2 months old?
Now he's 4months old already and so naughty!!


Had cravings for Teochew Porridge.. so I went to google up teochew porridge in Singapore and came across this one in Bukit Merah. Super far but it is really famous/popular among cabbies and it's cheap!!
And we thought we could drop by Henderson Wave after eating so off we went~

The long queue was NEVER ENDING.
Thankfully the queue moved pretty fast!!

P1010048
Wide range to choose from! Haha looks like caifan siol

For today (Sunday)... did nothing much except for attending a family gathering and also... 
HITTING THE GYM!!!
The bf is sooooooooooo determined to train me. Not that I've gained a significant amount of weight.. but I certainly can feel my fats being all wobbly and jiggly lol. So.. TIME TO TRAIN UP esp since the way I eat is hopeless! 
But this Jj really no mercy... He made me do everything that he does.. all the weights and all (obviously with lesser weights) because muscles burns fats if you do not already know. Yupppp so await the slimmer and toner me in time to come!!


Will blog soon again!!
I send my love!
