HUNGRY HEROES

|PUBLISHED 25 Jan 2015
|TALKED ABOUT Hungry Heroes

If you are a fan of Marvel's superheroes, or your boyfriend is one, then you probably will love today's entry. This crazily themed cafe has been sitting around our backyard for quite awhile, yet we did not notice it until a friend of ours introduced it to us. And in celebration of my bff's new found love, I threw a double-brunch-date at Hungry Heroes.

Housed in a nostalgic conservational shophouse in Little India, Hungry Heroes is a Restaurant & Bar specialising in hearty and robust meats. The interior design follows a playful eclectic style featuring original superhero memoribilia collected over the last two decades and quirky decorative pop art retailed by new lifestyle space agency.











Oppa and I ordered Beef Stew and Nice To Meat You (consisting of beef, chicken thigh, pulled pork and porkribs, coupled with thickcut fries, toast, corn and salad) to share and frankly speaking, we were pretty impressed. I was raving over how awesome the pulled pork was while Oppa loved the beef. Guess men just simply know their meat uh.

I didn't get to go upstairs so here are some photos I ripped off the internet. Check out how detailed their deco is ?! The chandelier is made of little hero figurines !! I totally regretted not heading upstairs but ohwells, I can always swing by again since it is just few minutes walk away from our place.

DINNER @ SPATHE PUBLIC HOUSE

|PUBLISHED 22 Jan 2015
|TALKED ABOUT Spathe Public House

Just got home from dinner with Glad, Yucui and Yuqin. We've been delaying Yq's birthday dinner since last December and we finally met up for some good hth talk. So much had happened to the four of us individually since we last met in November and I am glad we had this get-together. I have always love catching up over dinner cause I always learn something new.

Today, I learnt that flights are always overbooked. No wonder airlines sometimes offer free upgrades. I guess I should try to check in at a later time so I can try to cheat my way to business class. Always reach like 2 hours ahead, no wonder no free upgrade haha. But it will be funny if I end up missing my flight though.

It was my first visit to Spathe Public House at Mohamed Sultan Road. I officially declare it as one of my to-go places cause the waffles are really nice and it is located just 10 minutes walk away from Dhoby Ghaut MRT station.



We ordered Garlic Fries, Buffalo Wings, Haddock Chowder, Kurobuta Pork Chop, Simmered Pork Belly, and Red Velvet Waffles with Cream and Ice Cream. The waffles are really da'bomb please. Its crispy on the outside and warm and fluffy on the inside. I would definitely come back for the waffles again. I thought the prices at Spathe Public House were pretty reasonable for the standard of food – we spent about $120 for 4 pax. Here's the address if you are keen to go and do make a reservation just in case !

WEDDING PREP : GOWN SELECTION I

|PUBLISHED 17 Jan 2015
|TALKED ABOUT Wedding Gown Selection



And so, yours truly has finally gotten her ass down to selecting her gowns. As my AD package only covers one white gown, I will be renting an additional white gown for the dinner reception.

I have shortlisted a few boutiques and I am aiming to have the gowns settled, say, before I head off for my pre-wedding shoot in Feb ?

Selecting a wedding gown is one of the most exciting parts of getting married. Wedding gowns are like fantasy fairytale dresses which every girl dreams of. Whether it's a custom-made medieval dress or an off-the-rack gown you bought on the boutiques, there are several tips I think one should follow to make sure you get the gown of your dreams.

1. Set your price limit and stick to it.

Wedding gowns are expensive and if you are on a wedding budget, you don't want to spend a few thousands on a gown and have not much left for anything else.

2. Know your figure shape.

Models are super thin and anything looks good on them. Take a good look at yourself and determine exactly what you look like and what style suits you best. Do not go alone. Bring someone to go with you, someone who will be brutally honest as to how you looked in each style.

3. Ask for help.

Talk to everyone you know who has gotten married. Ask where they got their gowns. Ask the bridal boutique's assistant for their opinions. Let them know your budget considerations.

4. Don't shop on weekends.

Fix your appointment with the bridal boutique on a weekday. If you can, take the afternoon off from work. During a weekday, the boutique assistants are not as busy and their attention can be focused towards your needs.

5. Lie about your wedding date.

This is one tip a married friend gave me. This is especially true if your gown is not off the rack. Push the date forward at least a month to ensure that you receive the wedding dress in time. This also allows sufficient time for any last minute alterations that need to be made.

6. Don't be coerced.

This is another good reason to bring someone with you as you try on wedding dresses. Most boutique assistants tend to make you get a more expensive gown when the less expensive one looks perfect on you. Another head / mouth is always good for those decisions.

7. Take your time.

Unless you have walked into a bridal warehouse and the wedding is next week, take your time in selecting your wedding dress. Try on quite a few, take some notes about the ones you really like. If possible, take a photo of you in the gowns. Then go home and go over the wedding dresses, review the prices, and narrow it down to your two favouritest gowns. Return to the salon and try them on again. Don't let anyone, especially the boutique assistant pressure you in to choosing a wedding dress until you are ready.

Shopping for your wedding gown should be fun and exciting. Make sure you feel that way throughout the process. If you don't, you're in the wrong store or with the wrong people.

Since we are in the area of Tanjong Pagar where all the Korean restaurants are located, oppa and I decided to have dinner at Kko Kko Nara, followed by desserts at Quarter to Three where we talked about our week and bitched about people we dislike. Yes my oppa bitch with me and to be honest, I am no saint. So don't judge me and don't come telling me how un-classy I am.

It's been long since oppa and I set aside an entire day to date / run errands together. We often just do what we needed and then head back home to sleep. Yes, we love sleeping THAT MUCH. We can literally sleep the entire night, wake up at 11am, have our brunch, and then sleep through the noon till its time for dinner in the evening. Perhaps working full time has taken a toll on our mind and health, but at least we are in this together ♥

SPARKLE.

|TALKED ABOUT Midnight Thoughts



Since my proposal back in December 2013, I have been receiving emails and questions as to how many carats my ring is, how much does it cost, what brand is it from ? I even have someone mocking at me when I replied that we got my ring from a private local retailer JannPaul instead of the usual branded boutiques.

Frankly speaking, I see no shame or wrong in getting a ring from a private local retailer. So what if you are having SooKee or LeeHwa ? Is the brand or size of the ring something you take into account of how blissful your marriage will be ? What really matters is how you perceive the value of the ring and the man who got you that ring. Even if it's just a coca cola tab, with the right man, your marriage will be equally blissful.

Who doesn't love a solitaire in that beautiful blue Tiffany box ? Or that blood red Cartier box ? But keep in mind one thing; It's not about the solitaire, the cut, the clarity or the brand. It's about the man putting the ring on your finger. At night when the ring is off, it's just you and him. Make sure he's the one for what's within him and not for the size of that stone.
