Birthday Celebration Part 1 - The Landing Point at The Fullerton Bay Hotel

October is my favourite month of the year not just because its my birthday month but its also the month where everyone( technically only those in the northern hemisphere) welcomes the arrival of Autumn! 
I'd love to experience this beautiful season for myself at least once in my life.
I picture it to be in gorgeous and rich shades of oranges, yellows and browns!
Thank goodness for Instagram,
I'm able to travel and experience all seasons through the eyes of the accounts I follow :)

Anyway for the first part of my birthday celebration, 
my mom gave Alex & I a treat to the The Landing Point's 3 tier English high tea at The Fullerton Bay Hotel.
We were a little early for the hightea so we went by Flock Cafe at Tiong Bahru for a cuppa and a Lemon Tart before heading to for the high tea.

The latteart never fails to make me happy :)
And I'm wearing a pretty little handmade macaron heart bracelet from my beautiful friend Jenny's etsy shop.
Isn't it so photogenic?
<3   


Off we go to The Fullerton Bay Hotel for our 3 tier high tea!
The interior of the hotel is so grand and gorgeous with its high ceilings and full length windows that allowed plenty of natural light to stream through.
It wasn't difficult to find a spot around the hotel that wasn't photogenic.

So here we are, this is the place where they serve another 3 tier hightea; 
The Heritage High Tea which consists of a combination of local and Peranakan delights 
(e.g.: Hei Bi Hiam Toast)

But we weren't going for the Heritage High Tea, so we headed over to the Landing point for our English High Tea.

Though we had made reservations before hand, the host took his own sweet time to show us to our table though the place was not crowded.
It also took quite a long while for them to take our order but I'm determined to take my time, relax and enjoy the hightea.


Since we were all pretty full from coffee earlier, 
we decided to order only one set to share.    
We were then told that if we order only one set to share among three people, we can't get any refills for both food and drinks.
So okay fine, we ordered an ala carte drink for Alex while my mom and I both had the pot of tea included in the set.







After the hightea, we went around to take some pictures since its such a beautiful hotel!
Would love to have a staycation here one day :)








Verdict?
Ambience: 5/5
Food: 3/5
Service: 2.5/5
The place is great for family and friends get togethers, pretty decor and setting but will we go back there?
Maybe or maybe not..

RONIN Cafe

Ronin cafe on Hong Kong Street has long been on Alex's list of cafes to try so we finally went to try it last week :)
Located a stone's throw away from Clarke Quay Mrt station, Hong Kong Street was not difficult to locate but the actual cafe was pretty well hidden!
With no signboard or any indication that its a cafe, the only clue we had was the unit number 17.

From the exterior, the cafe looked like a bar cos it was dimly lit but once we stepped in, we were welcomed by the warm greetings from their friendly staff and shown to our seat.
The cafe was pretty packed even though it was a midweek afternoon.
I guess it's cos the famous Bak Kut Teh was nearby and everyone was there for their dose of caffeine and chill out alittle before heading back to the office ;)

Time for some pics!
Very cool industrial interior decor.
Though the industrial concept for cafes are a dime in a dozen, this place stands out for their laid back atmosphere and unique combination of types of wooden furniture.
You can see from the pictures that the tables were of varying shapes and height and the use of different types of chairs for various parts of the cafe.
Patrons can choose which section they prefer to chill at ;)
I like to admire the different types of lights at these cafes.   

Opened by the people behind The Plain and The Bravery,
good coffee is a given.
*everyone say YAY!* 
Doesn't pretty coffe art just brighten you day? :)

We were there for brunch, our server recommended the Japanese Beef Curry Rice, so Alex tried that.


I tried their highly raved Brioche French Toast with Braised Apple and Bacon.
What can I say?
The perfect pairing of savoury bacon, sweet maple syrup and braised apple was well... purrfect!
Generous portions too, so it was filling for me.
I'd love to go back to have this again!




Guess what?
Pretty Hui Shan is working here!
Good to see you again after so long :)
Thanks for the yummy coffees babe!

[OUTFIT] OH! DAISY


Last week I had the lovely chance to spend a Monday morning having brunch with Alex.
Considering that I work weekends so having brunch is pretty rare or almost impossible.
But thankfully most cafes now serve all day breakfast so yay!
We decided to be commoners and paid a visit to Common Man Coffee Roasters, 
where Alex had his Common Man Full Breakfast and I had their Common Man Pancakes.
LOL~
I really like their spacious interior and bar top design!
   
Take a peek at the food




Following my previous post,
I've been smitten by the wide leg silhouette of the palazzo pants and finally took out this little daisy number out for a breather!
She's been hiding in my closet for a year now...
I've taken her out countless times, to admire her and put her back hahaha...
Since Monday's are my days off, I decided to go for an airy and carefree look for our brunch date. 
What I really like about this daisy palazzo pants is that it comes with detachable straps, you can choose to wear it as a dungaree or just as a bottom.
Ahh...thoughtful Japanese designs!❤ 

For today's look, I chose to wear it dungaree style and paired it with a simple white vintage shirt, nude wedges, straw boater hat and biscuit bag.
Completed my look with a adorable little daisy necklace!
:)

[OUTFIT] Blanc et Noir

For friends who know me personally or friends who've been reading my blog or following me on Instagram, you'd know I'm a huge fan of prints.
I'm definitely not one you'd classify as minimalist. 
But for this outfit, 
I decided to try out something different from my usual style.

I've been very inspired by the wide leg palazzo pants look that's been trending all through spring and summer.
Contrary to popular belief about palazzo pants being only for tall thin women/models, 
I think someone who's vertically challenged can also pull off this look with the right kind of pairing and foot wear of course!

To balance out the wide leg silhouette, I chose to pair it with a simple loose fit sleeveless white button down which was perfect for our tropical weather.
I'd also pair it with fitted tops but personally I'd prefer to strike a balance by pairing with  
off-shoulder designs or horizontal stripes.    

The long length of the pants actually added height to my petite frame when paired with heels.
The height of the heels will also be affected by the length of your pants.
For mine, I think I altered it a tad too short for me to actually wear higher heels so I chose to pair it with this silver kitten heel to give it a metallic modern touch that went well with my necklace, earrings and watch.
Though the heels are not very high, I felt super tall in my palazzo pants that day!
Totally loving the roomy leg space too :)
