Meet Sera, a humble, friendly and wonder woman who’s managing The Sugar Fairy, a dessert stall located at 28 Dover Crescent #01-97 (Coffeeshop) Singapore 130028. Folks living in the west, now you know where to find sweet treats for your sweet tooth! Students get special discounts from Tuesdays to Fridays too. Don’t have to look further, The Sugar Fairy makes desserts come true with Sera’s magic wand!

IMG_9999

To kickstart, it would be good to go for the “Trilogy”, where you will have a choice of a mini sundae, parfait and waffle. I fell in love with “Into the Woods”, the colourful three layer parfait, which consists of vanilla cream cheese, brownie crumb and berry compote. It gives the tinge of cheesecake feel, chilled, slightly sweet and cheesy, with thick chocolate taste yet softly baked brownie crumbs to chew on. “Fairest of all” is a waffle with vanilla ice cream, berry and mango compote. Fruity and refreshing. You’ll be amazed by the waffles for its soft and fluffy texture, yet warm and crispy with every bite. Sera has also revealed that her specially formulated waffle batter is what she takes great pride in, and I give absolute credits and affirmation for that awesome waffle. “Upon a star” is a sundae, with vanilla and chocolate ice cream, blondie, and brownie crumb, topped with salted caramel and chopped nuts, a top pick among most customers, especially chocolate lovers. This choice of “Trilogy” comes with a reasonable price of $10.50 for all three items.

IMG_9976

As for the baked items, I tried The Sugar Fairy’s brownie with salted caramel, blondie with nutty fudge, and cookie with fruit and nut. The brownie has a thick and rich chocolate base, moist, and soft at the same time. I like it with the salted caramel sauce as it complements the taste of the brownie well. The blondie, on the other hand, is a lot sweeter, chewer, softer and denser in texture. Both the brownie and the blondie are reasonably priced at $2.50 each. As for the fruit and nut cookie ($1.80), its texture is a little hard and slightly too sweet for me. Definitely for the sweet tooth! These sweet treats are my sugar rush and instant mood boosters!

IMG_9989

“Far Far Away” is a waffle with vanilla and chocolate ice cream, caramelised banana, chocolate fudge and chopped nuts. I call this my ultimate energy food booster because the calories intake will keep me energised throughout my day. To end off on a light note, one thing that you MUST TRY, is the waffles.

I’ll be right here waiting for you!

Soul of Shaolin: Hui Guang’s Story is a stirring portrait of the life of a Shaolin monk. The tale begins with a woman who is forced to abandon her son when she finds herself pursued by a group of bandits. The woman hides her child among tall grass before jumping off a cliff in her effort to evade capture.

The child is later found by Na Luo, a Shaolin kung fu monk, who also picks up a piece of broken jade he finds near the former. Years go by, and the child, named Hui Guang, grows strong and healthy—raised and taught by Na Luo and also Miao Xing, the abbot of Shaolin Temple. Hui Guang’s past is not hidden from him; the truth is revealed to him, along with the piece of jade.

Depressed upon learning about his tragic past, Hui Guang gets drunk and ends up provoking other monks. He is then punished by Miao Xing who places him in a cave known as Bodhidharma. As it turns out, Hui Guang learns about being a paragon of virtue—that it is the real soul of Shaolin.

The story continues with him later crossing paths with his mother. Still out looking for her son, she once again finds herself in trouble when she runs into some ruffians. Hui Guang and Na Luo come to her aid, and while fighting off the hoodlums, the former loses his piece of broken jade. When his mother comes upon it later, she searches for him at his temple.

Mother and son are reunited and both wish to leave the temple to begin life anew. Unfortunately, temple rules dictate that a monk that wishes to leave, must fight his way out. As it turns out, the final opponent Hui Guang must face is Na Luo—and the latter chooses to fake his vanquishing in order to help Hui Guang. The story thus ends well, with Hui Guang and his mother leaving the temple to start a new life.

SEE YOU AT RESORTS WORLD GENTING THIS SCHOOL HOLIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!

Muar Road Trip 2017 – Elephant Bean Cafe (Sai Kee Kopi 434 Muar), Bakri Inn Homestay, Don Hu Jurassic Park, Muar Clock Tower, Sultan Ibrahim Jamek Mosque, Muar Soup House, R E A D Cafe, Cafe 1988, Kheng Ping Kopitiam, Cheong Heng, Wang Lye Kopitiam, Chaiwalla & Co. Container Café, Koone

IMG_8345

My favourite weekend is here again!!!!!!!!! This time round, I headed to Muar, Johor, Malaysia for a weekend road trip. Muar is about a 2 hour drive from JB Sentral. The first stop I made was at Elephant Bean, Malaysia Kopi 434 Muar. This place serves aromatic Malaysian Kopi O and very good Italian espresso. Their food speciality is the “Mee Bandung” which tasted like mee rebus minus the peanut taste and add some soup taste. The dried mee siam was rubbery and a horrible pick as compared to the delicious slimy soft one I had at Kluang Rail Coffee a few weeks ago.

IMG_8346

Food aside, Elephant bean has a nice vintage decor. It has both indoor air-conditioned seats for the comfort of customers and outdoor non air-conditioned seats where smoking is allowed. Nice coffee place to stop by for a short simple meal.

IMG_8347

My highlight of the trip is once again my current favourite kind of accommodation, HOMESTAY!!!!!!!!!!!! I chose Bakri Inn Homestay which gave me the luxury of a spacious home. Its exterior is like a huge bungalow and I can park the car directly outside my doorstep. A home away from home, I loved it!

IMG_8348

Once you open the door, you will be greeted by a long corridor as the living room. This L shape walkway then leads to the toilet. The toilet is not that clean though, but still passable. For the price of RM110 for a night’s stay, I think this quality not bad already. However, service needs a major improvement. Half the time no one’s available and there’s no proper lounge or reception area to at least let guests feel welcomed.

IMG_8349

The air-con is only available in the room. The bedsheets are those flowery types and I thought that adds a homely style and vibe well. The bed is soft, and the blanket is miffy material!

IMG_8350

After settling down, it’s time for a visit to the Jurassic Park in Muar!!!!!!!!!!!! This place is also known as the Don Hu Jurassic Park Garden. It’s very small in scale, but enough to fascinate the kids, and even me! Typically takes about 45 minutes to immense yourselves with all the dinos, big and small, all around you.

IMG_8351

The dinosaurs are animated and there are also “sounds” coming from everywhere, to make everything surreal.

IMG_8352.JPG

One tip though, please drink loads of water as the sun can be really scorching and burning you, thus dehydrating you! Sadly, some of the dinosaurs are fenced up, making them unreachable and untouchable by our bare hands.

IMG_8353

Dinosaur souvenirs are also available inside a sheltered area. They sell some dinosaur toys, souvenir T-shirts (my kind of thing), ice creams and drinks. I wanted to try the “Mee Siput”, a kind of snack, but too bad the ready fried ones were all sold out so I didn’t manage to try.

IMG_8354

The best news everyone would love about Donhu Jurassic Garden is that it is absolutely free of all admission charges!

As for the iconic Muar Clock Tower, you could detour and drive past or stop to snap a picture and that’s about it. Unable to take the stairs up to the top as it’s all closed. Dang!

Muar Clock Tower

Jalan Yahya, Pekan Muar, 84000 Muar, Johor, Malaysia

IMG_8356

I find Muar quite a quiet and small town, and there’s almost no more than ten people walking about the streets, and in fact, most shops seem permanently closed. Certain parts look very historical, with no signs of plans of operations or improvement works.

IMG_8357

The best photo taking spot in Muar would be…………………

Sultan Ibrahim Jamek Mosque

(Masjid Jamek Sultan Ibrahim)

This mosque was built between 1925 and 1930 and is the oldest mosque in Muar with a mixture of East and West architecture. With traditional Malay elements, vintage European design and classic Roman columns, their mimbar is of Turkish influence with an old sundial within the premises to indicate prayer times.

IMG_8359

This historical mosque in the town of Bandar Maharani, Muar, is situated along Jalan Petri, close to the mouth of Muar River. I was there in the evening when the sun’s not so warm and the lightings are good! The main colours are blue and white, an indication of a serene and peaceful atmosphere.

IMG_8360

It’s so pretty like a palace. There are so many Muslim couples taking wedding photos here! It’s probably their most grand place!

IMG_8366

A short walking distance away from the beautiful mosque is a park, where you will see many families with their kids. The kids can enjoy running around, play bubbles, or sit in movable “sports car” with their parents controlling it using remotes. You may even catch a sunset, if possible!

IMG_8367

My night time was extremely well spent with good food. Firstly, Muar Soup House serves thick and heavy duty mutton soup. They even provide a straw for you to suck it all up! The satays were however, a bit sour-ish and the sauce was too watery.

IMG_8368

So, moral of the lesson is, get nothing else except your mutton soup and bread to dip it in!

IMG_8369

The best steal I got from this mini night shopping is my 7.8kg stitch for only RM199.90 that I spotted inside a random shophouse that I passed by, the kind where nobody would even notice it exists. Got those Timberland slippers along the night streets for RM20 each (after negotiation). Less is more!

IMG_8370

Secondly, I visited the R E A D Cafe. Just in case you’re wondering, R E A D stands for Relax, Eat, And Drink. Please compliment me for attempted poses! LOL!

IMG_8371

Nice ambience, not too sure about the food, as I only had an extremely sweet bowl of mango ice with strawberries. The fruit juice was refreshing! This place is actually quite quiet even on a weekend night.

IMG_8372

Thirdly, I ended my night in a relaxing small light brown themed Cafe 1988. I like the motivational and meaningful quotes all around the cafe. The one that’s most applicable in my life now is definitely in sync with “Stop worrying, give your life a chance to flow on its own way”!

IMG_8373

I ordered the teddy bear shaped chocolate lava cake with cute chocolate paws. Even as I look at it now, I still find it super damn cute. I still remember that heavenly thick and warm chocolate liquid flowing out as I dissect the bear. I know I sound like a murderer here, but really, IT’S A GOOD SURPRISE and perfect dessert to complete my day.

IMG_8375

I did slept a bit over the night’s stay with Bakri Inn Homestay, so I still was quite energetic the next morning to hunt for a local lontong breakfast. The taste was very sweet and homely. I loved it!

Kheng Ping Kopitiam

84000, 29, Jalan Sulaiman

84000 Muar, Johor, Malaysia

IMG_8376

No road trip is complete without some confectionery to bring back home for the elderly and I decided to settle for some tau sa piahs from Sin Nam Hiang and almond biscuits from Yong Sheng Gift Shop. Muar is famous for their otah and you know what, I actually did not eat any at all on this road trip!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My justification is that I ate them before ages ago, so I thought I’d just skip the hassle of buying back these frozen ones. Anyway, I think Singapore also got sell.

IMG_8377

The eating spree continued on with an unforgettable bottle of 70% ginseng and 30% chrysanthemum tea. Nothing too great about Cheong Heng wanton noodles, but I like their roasted pork………………..

IMG_8378

I especially loved the curry rice, curry chicken, and curry vegetables I had at Wang Lye Kopitiam, kindly recommended by one of the Muar locals who sat at the same table with me while I was slurping my lontong breakfast earlier in the morning. Sweet curry, not too spicy, soft boiled potatoes, tender drumstick, well-soaked vegetables, what more can I ask for?! I WANT MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GIVE ME MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

IMG_8379

While on the drive back, I passed by a church and went in to be a KPO for a few minutes. It happened to be a Chinese service.

IMG_8380

God is good, and as I returned to Sutera Mall for last minute shopping, I was greeted with Hokkaido baked cheese tart, with no queue one. It makes me drool over and over, even now……

IMG_8381

My food vibes continued on to experiencing a cold cup of premium raspberry tea with pink pops at Chaiwalla & Co. Container Cafe back in JB area. The pink pops (like bubble tea pearls) will have strawberry syrup burst out in your mouths! Very sweet.

Chaiwalla & Co. Container Cafe

Lot 2810, Tan Hiok Nee Street, Johor Bahru, 80000 Malaysia

Contact Number: 60 12 735 3572

IMG_8382

A stone’s throw away is an attractive sweet pink painted “Kone” or “Koone” cafe which serves soft serve ice cream. Try the chocolate one, it’s thick!

Koone

28, Jalan Dhoby, Bandar Johor Bahru, 80000 Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia

Please don’t be mistaken, I may look like I ate a lot, actually I didn’t. The portions were small and I had the privilege of sharing everything with my partner.

With that, I hope you enjoyed the virtual read of Muar and Johor and are already excited and even making plans to go for a weekend getaway from Singapore!

3 Best Yogurts in Singapore

To my dearest yogurt fan readers (you know who you are) who’ve been asking me whether I choose yogurt instead of ice-cream, YES I DO (sometimes), and these are my 3 favorite picks!

 

[ THIRD CHOICE: THE YOGURT PLACE ]

http://theyogurtplace.com/

IMG_0505

Back in 2013, I tried The Yogurt Place for the first time and I remembered vividly about having the blueberry yogurt. As you can see, I love my yogurt with lots of nuts back then and even now too! To me, yogurt is a good alternative to ice-cream and it’s so much healthier.

Yogurt Place, in particular, believes that health and indulgence should never be a compromise. It is the first in Singapore and in Asia to introduce Freshly Made Greek Yogurt. Every scoop of their premium Greek Yogurt is passionately crafted, using only the best ingredients. Their yogurt contains low fat, minimal sugar level and no preservatives, yet delightfully smooth and creamy. The thick and creamy taste makes it an excellent substitute for mayonnaise and cream cheese products. In addition to the health benefits of live cultures, their yogurt also packs in a high protein and calcium content. To further satisfy the cravings of their customers, Yogurt Place offers indulgent frozen yogurt, delectable smoothies refreshing drinks and delicious waffles all infused with their very own unique fresh Greek Yogurt.

[ SECOND CHOICE: YAMI YOGURT ]

http://www.myyamiyogurt.com/

IMG_0412

Yami Yogurt was booming in 2013 as well and I eat it almost all the time! I find Yami Yogurt refreshing as it’s quite light in taste and comes with the right amount of sweetness. Come to think of it, it’s sad to realize that it’s been a very very long time since I last had a cup of yami yogurt………

Yami Yogurt, short for Yogurt Acidophilus Milk Yogurt, is a soft frozen yogurt brand established and introduced to Singaporeans in the early 1980s by a group of Singaporean entrepreneurs. With a wide variety of yogurt flavours and delicious toppings, Yami Yogurt is created with 3 main yogurt culture strands and has low-fat, not-from-powdered mix yet rich and delectable multitude of flavoured yogurt. With its catchy name, and the inherent goodness of its yogurt, Yami Yogurt quickly caught on with diet-conscious consumers.

[ FIRST CHOICE: LLAO LLAO ]

http://www.llaollaoweb.com/sg

This was me in 2014 when the Llao Llao craze came to Singapore with an outlet at Marina Square with a never-ending queue. I was addicted to the Sanum which consists of frozen yogurt, 3 fresh fruits, 1 crunch and 1 sauce. I love Llao Llao the most because I find the yogurt extremely thick and creamy. It’s super filling and has always been “one meal” to me!

Llaollao is Frozen Yogurt. As it’s natural, it’s one of the healthiest and most recommended products in the world, thanks to the goodness in it and its high nutritional value. It is made from skimmed milk at the moment of serving and combined with the finest toppings (from freshly-chopped seasonal fruits to cereals, fun crunchy toppings and delicious sauces), making it even more delicious and healthy.

In today’s drive for healthier desserts, I think I should keep a lookout for more yogurts! Any recommendations?!

Wang Wang Local Delight @ Blk 156 Yishun St 11

[ MEDIA FOOD TASTING ]

IMG_7552
Here’s calling out to all foodies, especially those who are in the Yishun neighbourhood! Great news, you’re in for absolutely good and cheap local delight over at Wang Wang Local Delight. Tucked in the heartland of Yishun, Wang Wang Local Delight is conveniently located at a mere 5 minutes walk away from Yishun MRT. Their specialty include curry chicken, vinegar pig’s trotter, and baked chicken wings. The humble owner, Mdm Toh (on my right) and her friendly son, Mr Alex Tham (on my left) are extremely warm and hospitable.
With the rising and competitive food industry these days, I will always return to a stall over and over again if I feel good about the service I receive. Service has in fact become a big factor to foodies like me and I’ve no qualms about Wang Wang Local Delight hospitable services and humble attitudes. Service is everything, and you can get absolute satisfaction from Wang Wang Local Delight!
IMG_7539

CURRY SEAFOOD MONSTER (SGD$5.50)

They say a picture tells a thousand words and the first thing I would like to mention about the curry seafood monster is that it is so piping hot that the smoke and aroma of the curry had instantly entered my nose and tickled my tummy. It’s a monster, that’s why!

IMG_7541

The first mouthful was creamy and thick. The potatoes were boiled well and soft. It also came with a generous serving of sliced fishes, and some squids (sotongs) and small prawns. The curry gravy is more than enough for you to spread it all over generously on your rice to create a curry rice effect. I loved the little fire underneath the pot that burns throughout the meal, so that I can always enjoy a hot curry. It’s not too spicy, so it’s very suitable for those who like their curry in a slightly creamier and sweeter side.

IMG_7547

CURRY CHICKEN RICE (SGD$3.50)

The curry chicken rice is a classic one, and comes in a simple bowl with boiled chicken wings and potatoes, accompanied by a bowl of white rice.

IMG_7546

It tastes very homely, like the ones mums would make at home! Big chunks of potatoes involved, but fret not, all are well boiled and soft to chew. Similarly, the chicken wings are also soft and the skin can easily come out with its chicken meat. It’s easy to place the whole wing into your mouth and “filter” the bones out! As for the curry gravy, once again, it’s not too much on the spicy side but is definitely sufficient to spice up the whole meal if you finish every bit of it! Maybe I’ve a higher tolerance level for spicy food and I found this easy on my taste buds. If you’re a curry food beginner, this is the best foundation you could start with!

IMG_7545

VINEGAR PIG’S TROTTER (SGD$6.50)

Oh man, this is the thing that I would die for. I’ve never much liked vinegar pig’s trotter because of its overpowering taste but Wang Wang Local Delight has proved me wrong. The humble owner Mdm Toh has revealed that this special vinegar pig’s trotter is cooked by her husband!

IMG_7544

It is rumored that the Chinese believe that black vinegar is good for health as it can purify the blood as well as cleanse the arteries. Over at Wang Wang Local Delight, the vinegar proportion used was very suitable for my taste, as it’s not as strong as I always imagined. The trotters are sweet, the meat is tender and the eggs and ginger slices blended in well! In fact, I’m easy to feed, I could finish a bowl of white rice with just this particular vinegar sauce! If you’re a beginner in tasting your virgin bowl of vinegar pig’s trotter, this is the best pick that will leave you a deep and good first impression.

IMG_7537

HERBAL CHICKEN MEE SUA (SGD$4.00)

If you’re into something light, then you should try the herbal chicken mee sua! It has a light herbal taste accompanied by a clear soup.

IMG_7477

This herbal chicken mee sua is as simple as it looks. It just comes with mee sua as its carbohydrate, boiled chicken wings as protein, and some vegetables as fibre. The soup’s herbal taste is light, and I find it a very good choice if you’re not too hungry or would like your meal lighter and healthier. Definitely one of those in the top priority list if you want lower calories but still nutritious!

IMG_7542

BAKED CHICKEN WINGS (SGD$1.30 per pc)

I’m saving the best for the last, and that’s none other than their baked chicken wings! The minimum order is 2 pcs, but if you’ve tasted 1, I’m confident that you’ll definitely order way more than 2 pcs.

IMG_7543

What’s so special about Wang Wang Local Delight is that their chicken wings are baked. It’s not the usual BBQ wings, but they do it in the baked version. The wings are well seasoned, slightly sweet, and emits a fragrant lightly baked smell. Addictive and great on its own! Otherwise, dip with a little chili to get that spicy kick.

Kluang Road Trip 2017 – Kluang Rail Coffee, Kluang Mall, Raodifang Homestay, Yean Kee Beef Noodle, Tan Ching Hing Restaurant Ah Fu Satay, Kluang Street Art, Ayer Hitam Tang Chuan Big Pau, Kulaijaya Aeon Mall, Car Born Cafe

IMG_7405

Hi dearies! I’m currently infatuated with road trips and here I’m in Kluang, Malaysia! ❤ Kluang is about two hours drive from JB Sentral and they are famous for their Rail Coffee. I tried the coffee cendol, a very thick and sweet coffee and it’s like a 2-in-1 drink cum dessert as well. Interesting! The “CHAM”, also known as “mixed” or yuan yang, commonly referred to as a combination of “coffee and tea”, has a dominant strong and rich tea taste. Great stuff! The Malaysian mee siam style is a dry one, but very flavorful, and comes with spicy soft bee hoon. Even with the addictive sambal sotong / squid / cuttlefish, it’s only RM7.70. Super duper cheap! All perked up, it’s time for shopping!

IMG_7409

Kluang has a shopping mall known as the “KLUANG MALL” and it’s a decently comfortable mall, not too huge, not too small, just nice for me to walk leisurely for an hour to two. Some of the walls have nice art too! I bought the rugged styled with black netting jeans that I longed for! ❤

IMG_7410

Satisfied, it’s time to head to Raodifang Homestay, something that I’ve been looking forward to as a new accommodation experience. I was very pleased because it’s really homely and made me felt at home instantaneously. The bathroom’s huge and comfortable, the bed’s soft and the room’s clean! Loved the wall stickers and overall vibe it emits. And best of it all, it’s only SGD$20 per night!

What more to ask for? Free flow coffee, tea, and water! Hooray!

Raodifang Homestay has lots of cartoon wall art all around the exterior walls too! They have sheltered parking as well. Very cozy and warm place. Great for friends and families who want to experience a home away from home.

And for food, KLUANG has delicious beef noodles with the right chewy texture, tender beef, a rich broth and perfect saltiness level for my picky taste buds.

It’s rumoured that Kluang also has good satay, but I find it so-so only. The otah has no wow factor as well. It’s very funny that I thought my water chestnut drink will come in a usual cup with a straw, but it came as a dessert container style. O_O

Anyway, the main highlight in Kluang got to be their street art!

I particularly like the school bus one as it had a real handle that I could hold on to and even swing a bit. Hahaha.

The hopscotch is real, drawn and painted on the road, so that you can stop to play before continuing to admire the long stretch of street art on the walls.

I applaud to all the artists who came up with all their artistic artwork, every single one has its own uniqueness and I spent an hour or so to try to complete snapping all of them!

Pardon my acting, I’m trying already!

Great colours, great drawings, great work!

Take nothing but photographs, leave nothing but footsteps. Cliche, but memorable.

The skateboard was very surreal!

A good timing to take these photographs would be around evening 5 to 7pm, when it’s less hot and still bright.

I’ll always remember Kluang as the place with loads of street art, almost everywhere! Beautiful memories and artwork captured! ❤

After we checked out from Raodifang Homestay the next morning, we drove to somewhere in Ayer Hitam with dim sum breakfast, specialty in big pau. The meat inside the big pau is very tender, partly minced, soft, flavorful, and nicely covered in a fluffy, sweet, soft and thick white bun. My kind of food!

On the way back, we stopped by for shopping at Aeon Mall at Kulaijaya. I bought a grey and white striped ribbon small bagpack for RM19 and a skull cap for RM10!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And some rubbish drinks and snacks………..

Feeling all good, we continued our road trip to our last highlight, Car Born Cafe! Look at my magnificent rainbow in a cloud (RM 29.68 NETT), it’s HUMONGOUS. Don’t belittle my cute little Cinnamon (RM14.73 NETT) as well, it tastes as good as it looks!!!!!!!!! The waiting time for these two beautiful cotton candy is about 15 to 20 minutes.

My salted egg nestum ice cream cheesy thin crust pizza was a good surprise. Very much to my liking! Yummy food, instaworthy drinks, cozy decor.
