shitty lil weekend

HOLA GUYS~ after all that slogging in the sun I may have to head down to ICA to change my ethnicity soon. NO I AM NOT RACIST I AM JUST GOOD WITH COLORS.

 

cheez whiz yummy~

CREAMIER AND MILKIER OH HOLY GOD

 

I am finally going to collect my delicious bottles of FUCKING CHEESE IN A JAR WHAT THE FUCK WHY IS LIFE SO BENT ON MAKING ME FAT. Just so you know, these cheeses are like common household snack equivalent of our margarine in Singapore. YET, its like a fucking snitch to locate in Singapore. Only tiny Pinoy shops sell them. And in limited quantities. Don’t worry babies mummy’s going to upload all the food porn I’m gonna make with dem cheez whiz.

Your awesome goddess has finally managed to do something about lycan’s horrendous peeing spree. I am thinking it was probably attributed to the little talk that I had with him. It was a gloomy day. He peed at the cupboards and I sat him down, and had a conversation with him. I know, he didn’t understand anything I was saying, but I guess he understood what I meant. He hardly pees at the wrong places anymore. And quite a few times in the designated place, the toilet. Dogs are such intelligent things. And I wouldn’t want a life without him, even though he’s an annoying little shit. And ugly. Speaking of ugly Yama sent me this:

I don’t know, its kind of ugly but cute at the same time. Especially that tuft of fur left around its mouth, looks like some hermit from lord of the rings or something. HAHA

Let’s talk about food. Knowing your goddess, her fussy palate simply just will not settle for terrible food. Because after all, those nasties are for you peasants.

smug haha

 

 

My mum bought this “white beehoon” for me and my sister the other day, and boy i’d tell ya over and over again, looks can be deceiving!

 

yummy beehoon

 

I know it looks like those crappy 2.50$ beehoon we usually see in those makeshift convenience stores, lumped together with the refried hotdogs, oily seaweed chickens and shit. It’s probably my terrible camera skills. But holy fuck, this man.

This beehoon is simmered in the broth of all the seafood goodness, soaking up every bit of natural sweetness. I like it especially because it is moist, every strand coated with a film of the rich flavourful broth and the chef is generous with his prawns and squids. I CAN’T PUT IT INTO WORDS. THE AROMA, THE FLAVORS, THE TEXTURES, simply ineffable.

Mum says there’s always a queue. Please do go try it if you have the time. I guarantee you some things are really worth the wait. 😉 (also order the ngoh hiong, sambal potato leaves and prawn paste chicken if you are eating there.)

And as we all know, I hate dim sum. Especially har gao (it sounds weird) and siew mai and everything. It’s like a fully compliant dieting trip whenever I go for dim sum with my friends. Because I’d only have chicken feet, lor mai kai and hot tea. Not even porridge because I hate century egg.

So anyway, I do not know which nerve I must have snapped in my brain, but I actually allowed my sister to convince me to travel all the way to eat Swee Choon. According to her and a few people, it’s really popz, and really good.

And thus, our journey began, took 960 to Bugis, then 130, 5 stops to our final destination. (A pun really.)

Lol, my sis and her boyfriend waiting to get the queue number.

 

longweekend6

We waited for about a mere 10mins, about 30mins short of what I expected.

 

longweekend8

I had to upload this candid shot that my sister took of flappy bird and I because In my honest opinion, I finally have a photo where flappy bird looks more handsome than the other photos. Maybe because only half of his face was showing. HAHA. My hair was a mess and so was my face in the picture, tho.

We ordered like 95 bucks worth of dim sum. I think that was enough to feed 5-6. We ended up tabao-ing them home. Here’s your goddess’ review of Swee Choon:

2/5 stars.

Definitely won’t choose to go back there again! (Prolly because I hate dim sum)

The lor mai kai was bland and not moist enough. Spring Onion fritter tasted bad. (We wasted the whole basket) Liu-sar-pao was according to my sister, was not salty enough. Chicken feet, carrot cake, chee cheong fun and etc was average.

But I do recommend their signature spicy chicken, xiao long bao and watercress soup.

The whole “travel for great dim sum” fiasco had its grand finale by ending with us caught in a downpour with no cabs wanting to give us a ride. That was all too much to stomach. HA HA HA HA. (J and my punny conversations never could seem to go away.)

 

I guess dim sum all taste the same to me generally, but the ones I’ve had at KL seemed so much better. Must be due to the fact I felt the waiters walking around with a huge bamboo steamer containing a variety of dim sum for you to select was quite interesting and cute.

These are from KL. The Lor Mai Kai was unforgettable. It was tasty and “oily”. Chicken was tender as well. As you can see, Lor Mai Kai, and chicken feet (at the back). All that I ate, literally. Well, and I tried quite a few of the others, like fishcake and some dumplings. Quite tasty!

I want to go back there again 😥 Mainly, for this:

Had two photoshoots on saturday, and I almost died. Woke up at 5.30 to prepare and head off to marina barrage. Nightmare place. I remember my sister brought me there once to fly kite and I turned into an Indian. I almost had to change my surname. But it was quite awesome this time round because we went to catch the sunrise!

Some of the previews that Jason has sent me. Your goddess almost died from trying to feign a sporty attitude, doing kicks and runs and pushups and shit. Holy. It’s only lucky I did some yoga last time. Yes, my eyelashes look so gorgeous in the first photo. They are so beautiful my eyes were transfixed onto those slender black lines on the photo for about 5mins before moving on.

Headed off to changi beach to meet up with Yama for the next shoot.

 

longweekend12

 

How? My make up skills got improve right? I look so radiant and sporty and as though I just had a good workout. AHAHAHA.

longweekend17 longweekend18

Being an extremely loyal and faithful west-side girl, I have never ever been to changi beach (nor knew of its existence) but it was so beautiful!

Rushed over to fort canning after that, Not to get married… but for my second photoshoot. It started at 11.30 and ended at 4. Can you imagine 😥 all the sun and blisters I got…

 

longweekend20

A snap of all the clothes needed to be modelled in! We only completed half that day. The blogshop owner, Tracy was an incredibly beautiful and friendly woman. Check out her shop here: http://www.eleventh.com.sg

I feel most of the clothes are catered to the working office crowd, but hell some of the dresses are really pretty!

 

longweekend21

 

Poor Yama was up all night looking at me 😉 😉 😉 LOL. on his computer doing the edits to make sure I have flawless skin. (or I will obviously murder him)

longweekend19

 

This mini tweed dress is so classy! I think she will be launching her next collection soon. Remember to subscribe to her mailing list if you like the cuts 😀

 

Neek got me INECTO, finally oh sweet camel jesus. If you people have shitty ass hair like me, do give this brand a try. The leave-in hair treatment spray is a must to get! But of course it is not available in Singapore, Mustafa only sells the shampoo and conditioner which I highly recommend as well. Only 4.90 per bottle.

Bangkok is the nearest country that carries this awesome coconut brand. The spray is about 11 sgd per bottle. I used to wash my hair with Aveda which costed me a bomb. 148 for one large bottle of shampoo and 165 for the conditioner. Inecto is like so much cheaper and you can really feel the difference. Once I lay my hands on the spray and the cream I have the complete set.

Check out their official website: http://www.inecto.co.uk

I suggest you get the shampoo and conditioner + the styling spray which are available at mustafa first. If you ever go to bangkok, just give BOOTS pharmacy a visit; definitely need to buy the leave-in treatment. Your hair will feel soft and silky after a few days of application.

How I found out about the miracle spray is when J’s mum came back from BKK and bought him one spray to use. I touched his hair on one occasion and asked him if he changed shampoo because his hair was so soft! Like really, baby soft and it was incredible because he had just dyed his hair. So I expected it to be rough and frizzly. So he told me must be due to the new spray that he just started using a few days back. I only used it twice at his house and I can already feel the difference.

Oh, coconut. I love you.

I know, its a waste I am not a salesperson.

 

longweekend22

Being Kiasu I got Neek to buy me 4 bottles of the amazing spray and 2 tubes of the hair repair treatment. If anyone wants to buy one spray from me… Quote your price and I will consider! HAHAHAHA.

 

 

Good night guys. I hope you had a great weekend.
