Kara Cafe & Dessert Bar now serves breakfast!

KARA Café & Dessert Bar at Bukit Timah, known for its popular Sogurt self-served frozen yogurt and iconic dishes like its Pork Belly Miso grain bowl and Matcha Berry Mochi Waffles, has just launched a breakfast menu for the first time. I was invited to Kara Cafe to sample the breakfast menu, which is available from 8am – 11.30am. My previous visit was a couple of years back when I sampled Kara Cafe’s main menu.

It was a wet and windy Sunday when I made my way to Kara Cafe. To be honest, I was wondering if I should postpone my visit since the forecast was for thundery showers for the first half of January. I had intended to kill 2 birds with one stone with this journey across the island, by visiting the nearby Singapore Botanic Gardens, but that hope was washed away with the gloomy weather.

Goodbye 2020!

It’s the last day of 2020! I’ve been completely swamped but I thought I should at least pen down something to mark the end of 2020!

Best wishes for 2021

It certainly has been one helluva tumultuous year for everyone thanks to COVID-19. I wanted to share my thoughts and what I experienced this year. However I also want to end off on a positive note so for now, I will just mention some skills/habits I picked up this year and hope to continue in 2021.

1. Exercise – The 4Q saw me picking up pace in terms of exercising. Thanks to a health fanatic friend, as well as wanting to minimise using the shuttle buses, I’ve increase the amount of time I spent walking. I also started visiting the gym again a few times. Things slowed a little during December due to many meet ups, but I shall pick up pace again in 2021.

2. This blog – You might have noticed that I pushed out numerous articles in the last few months. Once again, I hope to keep up and in fact ramp up the pace on this.

3. Social Media – My social media presence increased significantly, and I will continue to work towards making the growth exponential

4. Financial – After years of neglect, I finally delved into the stock market again this year. Also settled some other financial stuff. Hoping to do more next year.

5. Friends – Met up with so many people this year (surprisingly!), particularly in December. And even primary school friends whom I have not met in decades!

Well that’s all for now. Happy 2021 everyone! May 2021 be much better than 2020!!!

Meidi-Ya opens at Millenia Walk – 5 things to look out for!

Fans of Meidi-Ya, the premium Japanese supermarket chain can now rejoice at it’s newest and largest 2-storey flagship store at Millenia Walk (24,000 sqft) that will be officially opening on 25 November 2020. The bakery, food hall and wine & liquor store is on Level 1, while the supermarket is on Level 2. The supermarket offers fresh Japanese fruits, vegetables, and meat, that is air flown directly from Japan thrice a week and shipped by sea once a week.

This is their most convenient outlet yet, being located in the heart of town, and just outside Promenade MRT Station. And just for this opening weekend (28th and 29th Nov), there will be free parking for everyone who visits Millenia Walk, no minimum spending required, just drive in!

Meidi-Ya also has another outlet at Great World City but that is much smaller. I know many were saddened when Meidi-Ya closed its decades old store at Liang Court. But the Liang Court outlet, even if more spacious, was a pain to get to, especially prior to the opening of the Fort Canning MRT Station a couple of years back.

Check out my Instagram to watch my Meidi-Ya instastories videos!

Here are 5 interesting highlights you need to look out for:

C Cafe at Joo Chiat – New minimalist cafe at Joo Chiat with good coffee

Was itching to visit Joo Chiat as I haven’t been in the longest time. Joo Chiat boasts a number of cafes including

  • Homeground Coffee Roasters
  • Choice Cut Goods + Coffee
  • Sinpopo Brand
  • Ninethirty

and the one that opened a couple of months ago, C Cafe. Sinpopo Brand and Ninethirty are both concepts by Awfully Chocolate, and have both been there for nearly a decade. Kudos to Awfully Chocolate for lasting so long in a fickle F&B industry.

C Cafe (2)

I had high hopes for C Cafe, given that it was almost full on a Tuesday morning at 9.30am. Seriously, don’t people need to work? Although a couple were deep in thought typing or scribbling away, most of the patrons were there to dine with friends or family.  We managed to snag one of the last seats at the minimalist white themed C Cafe.
