If you are feeling dreary, maybe something in this list might help.

Take A Dump

There are more sophisticated ways of saying this such as empty the bowels, but I prefer the direct way of saying it, so yes, take a dump. It may not be much, but sometimes it may be exactly what you need to make your day a little smoother, if you know what I mean.

Get Out of The House

You may think that your house is well ventilated, but you are just sucking in recycled carbon dioxide that you have just breathed out. You don’t have to do anything strenuous, just a short walk around the block or park will make you feel so much better.

Have A Shower

Have a cold shower, to be exact. The coldness of the water will wake up every cell in your body; so there’s no way you can feel dreary.

Treat Yourself To A Good Meal

You can either cook it yourself or have it at a good restaurant. Go for things like lasagna or macaroni and cheese. They are called comfort food because they are there to provide comfort.

Meet A Friend

Stop feeling sorry for yourself and go out to meet some friends. Have a quick lunch or dinner and you will be surprised at how much better you feel after that.

Watch A Movie Alone

Stop waiting for someone to watch that movie with you, what’s wrong with watching a movie by yourself? It’s easier to get seats, and you can watch whatever you want. You may not have someone to hug in the cinema, but you can always bring your bolster along.

Sin Away

This is the time when you are allowed to pamper yourself. Forget about the diet for one day and order a two-for-one Canadian pizza. Gorge yourself senseless with chocolates or drink to your heart’s content. Whatever makes you happy.

Music and Songs

Watch cancer-stricken, tears-flowing Korean drama serials or listen to sad songs. Cry it all out. You will feel much better after you have gotten some of the unhappiness out of your system.

Write A Journal

Writing it down helps, at least it helps me. Write whatever comes to your mind. You can choose to publish it on a blog or you can keep it hidden in your computer or laptop like I do. Quoting Stefan from The Vampire Diaries, “Memories are too important to be forgotten”.

List of Things

List down a list of things to be done and get them done by the end of the day. When you have crossed out everything on that list, you will have a sense of accomplishment that you have spent your day well.

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.
