Food Review: Siamese Cat Café

It's been a long while since I last met my friends for a meal due to my work and study commitments. I'm glad that this busy period is going to end soon. We have a great dinner tasting session at Siamese Cat Café @ Novena Square(Velocity) where we tried some of our favourite Thai food and chill over the meal.

Siamese Cat is a Thai cafe that brings us Thai ethnicity to Singapore. Looking at their menu already make me drooling, they serve a variety of Thai food ranging from milk tea and drinks to Thai noodles, to toasts and desserts.

Siamese Cat is situated at the spot where the former Tuk Tuk Cha is.

With the change from Tuk Tuk Cha to Siamese Cat, it brings the dining experience to higher level, offering an extensive food menu which makes Siamese Cat a great place for lunch or dinner venue.

It's been a long time since I last hang out with the girls. 
Thanks GF for calling us along and Meryl for the photo.

We were totally spoilt for choices when it comes to drink selection. Siamese Cat has a 1 page menu of drinks that we can choose from.
Here's our choice of drinks from left to right: Jessie and Cookie both had Yuzu Soda ($4), Meryl opt for the all time favourite Thai Milk Tea ($2.80) while I had Avocado Coco ($5.50).

I love Avocado Coco drink so much, it was sweet and tasty. Drinking it makes me feel happy with the sweetness spread into my body.

The first dish up was Butterfly Pea Glass Noodles ($6.80). We ordered this because it looked so visually perfect with its outstanding blue-purplish noodle. The plate just looked so photo-worthy with different colours added. The glass noodles have a smooth bite.

We opt for a soup based dish, Northern Tom Yum Noodles ($9.80). 
The noodles were soaked in the Tom Yum soup, infusing the broth into the noodles. The spicy and sour broth gave a kick when consume. We helped ourselves to the generous servings of fresh prawns, seafood and mushroom too.

Next was Mango Salad ($5.80). Do not belittle this plate of Mango Salad, I could feel the hot and spiciness after a few mouthful. Quickly get hold of my drink and gulp it down.

One of my favourites definitely is Phad Thai ($7.80). Just by looking at it, it already tempted us to start digging in.
The noodle was coated with sauce and, stir-fry with bean sprouts and eggs. Every bite could taste the eggy goodness that was well spread out. It tasted so marvelous. 

After having a series of savoury food, it's time to move on to dessert.
First up was Condensed Milk Milo Butter Toast ($4.20). The butter toast was toppled with milo powder and drizzled with condensed milk, one can taste the richness of the milo powder. This may look simple but it was a sweet and savoury indulgence. It was a mild sweetness dessert to go for.

Next up was Coco Yolk ($4.80) which made up of coconut ice cream and frozen egg yolk slice. A perfect dessert to ease our throat after having the spicy dishes. The ice cream was very creamy and smooth, but we can't taste much of egg yolk, the taste was not powering. Nevertheless, I still love it very much because I'm a big fan of coconut ice cream.

Last but not least was Charcoal Mango Sticky Rice ($8.80). This was my first time seeing charcoal sticky rice which makes the dessert unique. Our only grip for this was that the sticky rice was too firm when we tried to eat using plastic fork. The mango was really sweet and we cleared it in no time.

It was a pity that I didn't get to taste the Shibuya Toast which we wanted to try because we were too full. Hope to try it next time.

We have a joyful dinner in a relaxing atmosphere and chit chatting among ourselves. Thanks Siamese Cat for having us.

Upon leaving, we chanced upon the float cup holder that  Siamese Cat is selling.  Siamese Cat is having Summer Float Fiesta the whole of May. For purchase of value meal set, one can redeem the float cup holder at $4 each. They have different design every week. Collect them all now.

Review: Legally Blonde The Musical

Omigod, it's time. To. Go. Blonde! and Pink.

A snappy brand new production from New York - Legally Blonde has arrived in Singapore, bringing us the contemporary choreography, costumes and exciting video elements.

Legally Blonde The Musical is showing in Singapore at Sands Theatre Marina Bay Sands from now to 20 May 2018.

Ticket price starts from $65 to $195.

Showtime
Thu-Fri: 8pm
Sat: 2pm & 8pm
Sun: 1pm & 6pm

Steffi and I were feeling excited for the show. Today's meetup was also a catch up session for us, we have not seen each other for nearly 6 months.

Credits to Marina Bay Sands website.

Legally Blonde The Musical is based on the 2001 Box Office movie hit. It tells the story of a fashionista, Elle Woods, who is capable of doing anything she sets her mind to. She is dumped by her boyfriend, Warner, who wants a 'serious' relationship. Determined to win him back, Elle follows him to Harvard Law School to prove her seriousness. With the helps from new friends, Elle creates a name for herself and find her true love. 

Legally Blonde is more than just a musical, it is a show with dialogue interaction and humour jokes. Legally Blonde The Musical, is definitely the must-see feel-good show of the season. I love their energetic performance, even the dog make a special appearance too. So adorable right?

Besides that, we get to see different shades of pink from Elle's wardrobe.

The most exciting part of the musical is definitely the courtroom scene where Elle managed to find clue with her instinct and the help of Emmett Richmond. They tried to test whether Nikos is straight or gay. This scene is so humorous with his gay partner turning up and bringing us the performance “European or Gay?”.

The upbeat songs and beautiful story line accompanied us throughout the 2 hours performance, leaving us feeling satisfied and warmth. It evoked many different feelings - happy, funny and sad.

At the end of the show, the cast came to bid us goodbye. 
So thankful for the wonderful and entertaining show. We have a rocking good times at  Legally Blonde The Musical.

Legally Blonde The Musical is showing in Singapore until 20 May 2018, click here for more information and purchase of tickets.

Happenings in January - Dinner + L'Oreal Professionnel Serioxyl Hair Serum Review

Thursday 4/1/18

I went back to school today to collect my textbook for my next semester course that is starting from the week of 22 Jan 2018, which is just another 2 weeks away. Oh no, the hectic life is coming back again.

It was 8pm when we were back at our neighbourhood and we were so hungry. We just settled for something fast.

I have fried wanton mee pok at Kopitiam.
Dinner was simple but I enjoyed it, I love the fried wanton especially the crunchy and crispy part. So addictive.


Friday 5/1/18

I met up with GF for lunch at our usual meeting place at OKG Express..

Both of us ordered Prawn Noodle ($4.30). 
Though it was just a short one hour catch up, but we have quality one hour chatting and sharing about our up coming overseas trip in. My trip is just one more week away while her trip is two weeks away. We were so excited for our trip.

It was our D&D (Dinner & Dance) that night. So after our work, we headed down to the venue for a sumptuous dinner. Attendee is required to pay $10 to attend the D&D.

We have Four Treasure Soup that was tasty, a very comforting dish that warmed our stomach.

Other dishes that we had:
- Deep Fried Sea Bass in Nonya Style
- Tender Braised Home-made Chicken Ballotine
- Ocean Prawns with Fragrant Roasted Oats
- Pineapple Fried Rice with Seafood
- Sesame Filled Glutinous Rice Balls

It was a great night with lots of fun and laughter. We were called up to the table as one of the best dressed table with our cowboys and cowgirls dressing. Though we didn't won the best dressed table, we already enjoyed ourselves to the max. This was the most memorable D&D I have so far.

  Saturday 6/1/18

Ended my Saturday with a sweet indulgence of Tiramisu cake that bf's sister has gotten for us. I haven't eat Tiramisu cake for a long time. The coffee taste was strong but not too overpowering, the taste was just right for me.

I gotten L'Oreal Professionnel Serioxyl Hair Serum as a gift during Le Hair Spa opening. Recently, I have started using the hair treatment in my haircare regime. 

The hair serum, Serioxyl Denser by L'Oréal Professionnel, can be applied directly to the scalp daily. The serum is suitable for people like me with thin and fine hair, it helps to boost density with +1700 hairs.

I applied 3-4 drops on my scalp everytime after I washed my hair, and then massage into the scalp. There was no greasy feeling after applying the serum as it was water solution texture, it also gave a light scent on our hair. Most importantly, it did not cause any skin irritation.

Result can be seen after using the products for 3 months.

For Shampoo, I am currently using Goldwell Kerasilk Rich Keratin Care Shampoo.
It aids in turning damaged hair into smooth and soft hair. It contains keratin and silk proteins for hair  support and giving hair smooth like silk.

I gotten this as a gift from the usual hair salon that I visit. A gift for spending $150 and above. 
With Goldwell Kerasilk Rich Keratin Care Shampoo, I can enjoy the feeling of salon hair wash at home.

We are starting to count down to our Taiwan trip which is just 2 days from now. I am starting to feel a bit of excitement, I can't wait for the trip. I really need a getaway badly. I tried to clear as much work as I can.

We had dinner at my neighourhood hawker centre and I had Chicken Chop Fried Rice. Overall, the dish taste good with the exception that the fried rice was served cold. It was as though they have cooked it in the day and didn't even bothered to make it hot. 

We ended the dinner with Chendol, my favourite dessert apart from ice cream. A perfect dessert to have after meal to cool ourselves from the heat.


  Friday 12/1/18

Finally I have endured the last working day before my trip. Oh yes, my long waited trip is coming.
I left work in a happy mode.

Bf and I headed down to Eunos Food Centre for dinner, both of us ate Cai Fan as we were rushing for time.

The reason why I was there was to join a group meditation.
Lately I noted that meditation is getting popular and many people are practicing it due to the benefits that meditation brings: reduce stress, increase self-awareness, increase acceptance and etc. Even our political leaders are practicing it too.

I wanted to give it a try so I set aside an hour of my time to practice meditation. During that one hour, I basically do nothing, just quiet my mind, reflect my thoughts and stay away from using mobile. It feels good to practice meditation once in awhile, but preferably with a meditation teacher around for beginner. 

I reached home pretty late that night at 11 plus and I need to wake up at 2.30am later on to catch my flight. Alright, time to pack my luggage. Good bye.
