East Coast Park

Grace and I went to the East Coast Park today to exercise. We really had a good workout.

We met at Bedok MRT and we took bus 31, but we missed our stop (the normally-very-quiet Grace was very hyper today) and we ended up at Toa Payoh Central. We had Burger King for lunch. Her eyes sparked when she heard about the shopping and made me bring her there to have a look. Good thing I could drag her away in time, or else we would probably have spent the whole day shopping in Toa Payoh instead of our plan to exercise in ECP.

We started off with skates. We both rented roller blades, but I gave up after an hour. It's so damn difficult to roller blade, or maybe it's just that it is my first time doing this and I need more practice. With Grace's unsteady help, I managed to walk a bit, while falling down five times. I give up. My legs were so sore and I really don't want to twist my ankle, thank you very much. So I took off the roller blades and walked back to the rental shop where I changed to a bike. The rental shop Uncle didn't see surprised to see me back so soon, he must have seen a lot of people do the same thing.

After finishing up the two hours, Grace and I went to bowl. It's no fun with just the two of us. We should get the whole D3 together and have a bowling session one fine day.

After bowling, we each rented a bike and we rode together. Then I rode off-course and we were separated. I went further down and I almost could not make it back on time.

We had such fun today and it was a really good workout.

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.
