hungry



Denim shirt from Gipsy Scarlet Label.
it's a manufactured piece! i wear size M and fits me to a T. i like how it looks as a outer wear though you can wear it as a regular shirt too :D
it also comes in Cream and Pink other than regular denim blue!
quote GSYINA to get 5% off! :)



Alexander Jersey Dress from Little Red Heels!
one of those slouchy and comfy pieces you can practically sleep in :D manufactured by LRH with love too!

Layered Maxi Dress from Megagamie. it's only available at their retail racks at FirstDay/Kissjane!
i've come to a conclusion that i look good in mustard. which is awesome for this season because mustard is like the new black :D

don't be offended if you emailed me asking about advertorial rates and i didn't reply your email. i kind of have like a few months worth of advertorial emails unreplied to :( i will reply them soon!!!!

anyway, i was up at 5.40AM because Gina's incessant iphone alarm wouldn't stop ringing.
...
so i figured since i'm up so early, i might as well stay awake til 8AM (which is now!!!) and then head over to vote.

today's the big election day and i'm not gonna talk politics on my blog (because honestly it's a topic that only comes up once every 5 years and although some fellow singaporeans show avid interest in it, i think it's really just a trend.) but i'm quite in a dilemma because i'm in the highly contested Aljunied GRC (even though i live nowhere near Aljunied WTF) so it's really hard for me to base my vote on my own experiences, as seeing how i used to be in Marine Parade GRC and then ever since i moved to my current house i don't think i've ever seen an MP in the estate, ever.

and they didn't even bribe me with enough money because i checked my bank account and it seems like everyone else got their $600, and those other friends staying in landed estates got $300. HOW COME I GOT ONLY $100 WTF? the code for the transaction is GD right? (since i didn't see any other amount being transacted to my bank account) maybe i didn't file my income tax that's why.

whatever it is.

moving on, i haven't blogged any food pictures in awhile,
partially because my latest food haunts are hawker centres and food courts and kopitiams.
i love Newton Food Centre's beef soup and rojak! or Bedok 511's ba chor mee.
or like.. Punggol nasi lemak.

but yes, not very exciting reads :(

it was Labour Day and YZ thought he'd bring me to the dim sum restaurant his friend's been raving about, but apparently, every other family in town must have had similar ideas, because it was packed full of people like sardines wtf!

we had to queue for like 30-45 minutes just to get a table.
the food is generally good, but i think it's a little overrated. tasted like above average dimsum to me, with some dishes that were more outstanding in particular. i love the egg tarts and siew mai! those were good. some other dishes like har gao and pork ribs were so so. but i believe the older generation like the restaurant for its ambience and tradition. it's hard to find trolley pushing waitresses dishing out plates and baskets of piping hot dimsum in Singapore nowadays :)
they've actually won so many awards!
the deep fried fritters trolley. yummeh





chee cheong fan was good! soft and melt in the mouth.


didn't really like the char siew sou. too much pastry for my liking and the char siew was average.



we ended up with a bill of $60 ish.
hmmm.. not a place i would visit often. i still prefer Victor's Kitchen over at Sunshine Plaza :D

Red Star Restaurant 红星酒家
Address: Blk 54 Chin Swee Road, #07-23 Singapore
Tel: +65 6532 5266

just in case you're interested. it's probably not a good idea to go there on Sunday mornings though. lots of familes going there for brunch!

it's 8.16AM now so i figure i ought to head down to vote, then i can go back and get some sleep until it's time for rehearsal later :D
gosh. weekends don't feel like weekends anymore.

  1. you prolly got lesser cos your house's annual value is higher than others. They base it on the annual value of houses. So goes to show your house more expensive! haha

  2. More expensive, hence no MP walking around. Or else, would get complained by the less-affluent. Haha!
