Moving On

I went back to the Bukit Gombak house today to pack some stuff that I have left behind in my haste to move out and it became a walk down memory lane.

The moment I stepped onto the train platform at Bukit Gombak MRT station, memories that I thought I have long forgotten rush back to me. I remember seeing someone who looks like Brandon from the corner of my eye when I was going down the escalator, but I didn't dare to turn around and make sure it is him because I am scared that it is really him.

As I exit the train station and walk towards the covered walkway, I remember the day I broke up with him. He sent me to the start of the covered walkway and told me that he would wait. He said that he's going to stop here because he's afraid that he will not be able to let me go if he sends me to the carpark.

As I cross the road and step onto the pavement underneath the MRT track, I remember the day he met my Mum and she accepted him. We hugged there as the countdown for the New Year started on the parade square across the road.

As I walk through the carpark leading to Guilin View, I remember how we will stop there when he sends me home. We will have a nice long hug and a quick kiss before he walks off. I will watch him until I can no longer see him, and I will turn around and walk home.

As I walk towards Guilin View, I saw the back gate and I remembered how we will sometimes go by the back gate and have long passionate kisses, covered by the shadows.

I went straight to my house and rang the bell. Aunt Anna opened the door and let me in. When I stepped into my room, I realised that I really missed my room. Although I did not actually get to design my room, but Mum did such a good job. I remember the time when we were both on my bed and he slept on my leg, my heart feeling so full of love.

As I packed my things, I realised that I seriously have a lot of possessions. Just my books can fill up three large bags! I will have to come back another day to get the rest.

OMG! Judging from the amount of things I have, I am going to have a big headache when I move house in September. I am going to hire one of those house-movers the next time I need to move house.

I think it was a good thing that I moved out. That place holds too many memories of me and Brandon. My Woodlands rental room will be a new beginning.

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.
