Birthday Suprise!

Okay, so I didn't get any of the things that I asked for in my birthday wishlist (Jing Yang wanted to get me Yakuza Moon but it was sold out in Popular, so she bought me another book which I am reading right now).

My lovely friends gave me a birthday surprise and I didn't expect it at all. I had such a wonderful time yesterday, that it's not that much a deal whether I got presents or not.

We were to go back to school today to return our PDAs. Lay Hoon wanted to talk to us, so the TTSH group is separated from the rest of the cohort. Our talk started at 1pm, so Kar Yin, Xiu Yi, Kimberley, Jeanette and Serene waited for me outside the Lecture Hall. There's something wrong with my PDA and my data cannot be synchronised and I have to meet up with Sheyenn to fix my PDA on Sunday, so I came out early. I saw that Kimberley and Xiu Yi were not there with the group, so I kind of assumed that they are probably in the toilet. Jeanette was talking on her phone, I thought that she is talking to one of her other friends. She ran off in the direction of AAP laboratory, saying that she is going to see what they are up to. I was really puzzled. I mean, what is there to see at the AAP laboratory? I was just about to follow Jeanette when Kimberley suddenly appeared in front of me and started to act all silly. Just then, I heard someone singing, " Happy birthday to you! Happy birthday to you..." I turned around in surprise and saw Jeanette holding a chocolate cake and walking towards me singing the Happy Birthday song. I think I just stood there for a whole 1 minute in a daze before I could react. I was so touched. THANK YOU SO MUCH. It was so sweet of them.

Talking about birthday surprises, let me tell you another incident. We were gathered at Eudora's house a few years back to celebrate my birthday. We were downstairs, presumably to get food for me (I was hungry...) but they refused to let me into the kitchen. Then Eudora emerged from her kitchen holding a chocolate cake with the Happy Birthday thing stuck into the cake and they were all singing the Happy Birthday song and smiling at me. And I asked this really stupid question," Um, whose birthday is it?" I could see from their expressions that they were ready to faint. I totally forgot that we were there to celebrate my birthday....

Mikoto Singapore

Stella has been raving about Mikoto Singapore ever since she ate there. She brought her boyfriend and a few other friends there and they were all full of praises. Is it really that good? I started to wonder. I jumped at the chance when Stella invited me to have dinner with her boyfriend and her at Mikoto Singapore.

I started off with Red Plum Liquor. You can't really taste the alcohol probably because the alcohol content is lower, but the taste of red plum is refreshing.

This is Nitsuke. It looked so good on the menu, but it was a little disappointing. The only noteworthy thing is the sauce.

This is Chicken Nanban. The chicken pieces are perfectly deep-fried. Tartar sauce is made with Japanese pickled eggplants called shibazuke which gives it the pick colour. This is definitely the highlight of the meal!

This is Vegetable Stick with Anchovy Sauce. The raw vegetables are very fresh and they go very well with the slightly-salty anchovy sauce.

This is Ham Cheese Katsu and it is only …

I Am Cafe

Mariem wanted to meet for dinner and she suggested this I Am Cafe that I have not heard of before.

Located at Haji Lane, this cafe  swaps air-conditioning for casualness and down-to-earth prices. It is not certified halal, but it is owned by three Muslim brothers.

The waitress recommended Cheezy Bombs and it was really delicious. Deep-fried chicken meatball with melted cheese, they explode in your mouth and will burn your mouth if you are not careful. 

I ordered Charcoal-Grilled Juicy Beef Burger. The beef patty if very juicy but a little under-seasoned, the addition of the pineapple gives the burger a totally different experience. However, it would be great if the beef patty can be made into two thinner ones, so that the burger can be eaten in halves, most girls don't have such a big mouth.

Mariem had Fish 'N' Chips. I had a few bites and it was alright, but I can still taste the taste of the fish, which should not be the case in a good Fish 'N' Chips.
For drinks,…

Awfully Chocolate

I have a sweet tooth, but I am not a big fan of chocolates because I find them too sweet.

However, if I ever have craving for chocolate cake, THE place I will go to is Awfully Chocolate.

I can't remember who introduced me to Awfully Chocolate, but I have been hooked ever since.

The Salted Butterscotch Brownie is really good. You can taste the butterscotch in every bite, but it is a little too sweet for me.
The Super Stacked Chocolate Cake is the one for me. It is super chocolatey, yet it is not overly sweet. It is the most popular item for a reason.
The White Choclate Creme Brulee Tart is too sweet, but otherwise delicious. 
Don't take my word for it - go and try them for yourself! I promise that you will not regret it.
