IKEA Catalogue

Normally, I don't like catalogues. IKEA catalogues is the only exception. I absolutely love IKEA catalogues!

I was flipping through the IKEA catalogues that I have collected over the past few years and the strong urge to have my own apartment is back again.

I mean, I am happy with what I have right now, renting a room that has everything done up nicely for me...

but it's not what I want!

I want my own apartment which I know is mine, where I can do whatever I like with it.

I want to buy a brand new mattress and a nice bed-frame that doesn't creak like an old lady everytime I sit on it. I want to have a ceiling-to-floor bookcase and a walk-in wardrobe. I want to have brand-new quilts and bedsheets. I want to have a simple and stylish kitchen where I have matching bowls and plates from IKEA. I want to have have a big oven and an electric mixer so that I can bake all I want. I want to have a sofa-bed. I want to have cushions of various sizes littered all over my floor. I want to have a mini fridge where I can store all the ice-cream and foods that I love to eat. I want to have a bathroom with a bathtub so that I can have a nice soak after a tiring day's work.

The problem is, I am absolutely clueless about buying a property. I know that I will need to get a loan from a bank but I don't know how to go about doing that or what is required. I know that I must pay a monthly instalment for the property, but I have no idea how much I will need.

Can someone please teach me?

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.
