Being a wedding planner, I really love my job. But after a few tough deals recently, it felt good to be back at our homeground Raffles Town Club!! Though it is a country club, the services there can compete with any hotel banquet services. Always love working with the Raffles Town Club's banquet for weddings. And another plus point, there is a Japanese restaurant on the second storey that serve awesome Japanese cuisine. So to celebrate the belated birthday of a fellow colleague, our boss decided to give us a treat. *slurp*

The photos don't do justice to the food, took using my ipad mini because i forgot my camera!!

Wanted to try their desserts too, but we had no time. They have this deep-fried tofu cheese, sounds so interesting. So gonna come back next time!!!

Yeah!! Finally back to cafe-hunting!! Work has been quite tiring for me recently, thankfully i find joy & comfort in food. And with the companion of my food buddy, Adeline!! Has always heard about Habitat Coffee but didnt manage to try it out. This time, I happened to be meeting a client nearby the area & decided to make the effort to head down.

223 Upper Thomson Road, Singapore 574355
Operating hours: Tues to Fri - 11am to 10.30pm, Sat & Sun - 10.30am to 10.30pm, closed on Mon.
Tel: +65 6456 2567
Second floor dining area
All-Day Brunch: Egg benedict $12
Poached Eggs and honey baked Ham on sundried tomato bread topped with homemade Hollandaise sauce
 (This has to be the most normal looking & tasting egg benedict i tried, nothing special but totally love their egg york that oozes out. Slurp~)
 Savory Pasta: Curry It $12
Asian Curry Chicken sauteed with pasta & grated Parmesan cheese
(This taste really unique. People always eat curry with rice, who would have thought it taste great with pasta)
Just Right: Hello Truffle Fries $8
Dressed with fine grated parmesan, this is Habitat Coffee's home seasoned Truffle Fries
(Everyone knows i love truffle fries, totally LOOOOOOVE this~ One of the nicer truffle fries i tasted.)
What is a cafe visit without trying their coffee?
Flavored Coffee: Hazelnut $5.90
Cafe Latte $4.90
What I like about this place is that it is really nice and comfy. Simple wooden interior, nothing expensive-looking, nothing over-the-board. Most of the staff there are school part-timers & teenagers, so you can really feel the young vibe & energy in the cafe. And more importantly, there is a bus-stop directly outside. So it is accessible & convenient to reach there. So gonna come back to try their desserts and other menu next. =)

NUS Science Dinner & Dance 2013

NUS Dinner and Dance (D&D) is one of the five Freshmen Orientation Projects (FOP) in NUS Faculty of Science, consisting of two events: Bash and Dinner& Dance. It is held in conjunction to search for the next Science King & Science Queen to represent NUS Faculty of Science in the annual NUSSU Bash as well as appreciating everyone for their hard work & involvement in the activities organized at the NUS Students' Science Club in the past academic year. Held in Intercontinental Hotel on 24th August 2013.

Being one of the sponsor, I was really honoured to be sent by my pageant organiser, Exclusive Resource Marketing Singapore (ERM Singapore), to help groom these young contestants as well as being one of the judges. I wouldn't call myself a professional groomer, but more of me sharing my experience as a pageant queen with them and guiding them with their catwalk & poses.
Really enjoyed myself guiding everyone, you guys are really a fun bunch to work with.
I will also like to thank the committee of the NUS Science D&D for having me =)

So, the actual day finally arrives. It was quite an achievement for me to see their transformation from the first day I met them to the actual day on stage. Being a finalist, everyone is a winner already.
Crowning Miss Sweetheart. Congrats!!
Receiving a token from the Committee Chairman. Thank you!!
Good job guys!! Everyone really shine on stage. Felt like a proud 'mummy' standing among them. 
And congrats AoXiang & Brenda for clinching Science King & Queen.. =)
