Fish ball noodle, about S$3 (Lau Pa Sat)

Pu4 Gai4(noodle) noodle, sounds like pok4 gai1(Cantonese) but it actually translated to flat cover noodle, the noodle comes in flat big pieces, S$3.50 (Lau Pa Sat)
Prawn Mee which taste sweet, ewww, most unappetising noodle i had in Singapore (a cafe in One Marine Boulevard building)

Sis in law bought these makeup for me while she went back to Taiwan. I am a noob in makeup, in fact it is her who keep on pushing me to makeup, buying me and giving me her makeup which i use while visit Malaysia, but were left to dry up after she left… haha… We joke that it was a way to attract bees while i was still single… While i do like good makeup on people, they look good, tidy, nice lashes, perfect skin, i am just too lazy for it, like seriously my trip to work takes almost 1 hour, i rather sleep more. guess i am not used to makeup. I will use it soon, hopefully since already bought makeup remover.
Above clockwise from left: eyeshadow, control base, lip gloss, makeup base, eyeshadow, blush. According to her, control base(which has slight shimmer) should be applied first, follow by the makeup base(foundation like)…
Lavshuca is under Kanebo, and currently as far i know not available in Malaysia.

Went to this corner hawker shop in Kepong, near KTZ dessert place
Tau Hu Pok in Bak Kut Teh soup, RM2
half a kampung chicken in pepper soup, RM18, i like pepperish soup, wish they gave more cilantro leaves though.
dessert in KTZ, RM5.50, yum yum, but i still miss the mixed fruit dessert in Ipoh, so good, KTZ version pales in comparison.
Overall, pepperish chicken soup is a nice homely dish that comfort your soul and stomach 🙂

Robertson Quay hotel (near Clarke Quay)

This is Robertson Quay hotel, located near Clarke Quay area, nearest MRT: Clarke Quay, also the cheapest hotel we could find: $SGD100 for room and breakfast(2 pax), internet SGD$5(daily, optional). The moment we walk into the room, it is not a pleasant feeling, the room feel like some cheap Chow Kit area budget room(ok, i never been there, but you get the drift, there is no feeling of crisp linens, instead the whole room seems to be quite humid, from the wet carpet) My colleague couldn’t take it take we have to live here for 5 nights! I am the other hand is more concern of their 72 hours cancellation policy and wouldn’t mind living here for 5 nights.
Who knows a hotel in Clarke Quay, in Singapore could be in this condition. But next day, we move to another room, in fact a floor higher, exactly on top of this room… hehe… and it is much more cleaner, so it depends on which rooms you are getting, i guess. Nonetheless, it is a small room, a lil too small for comfort.
twin bed
looking to entrance
toilet, very small.
But i have to give them credit that their customer service is satisfactory… Do give this a try if you want to live in room below SGD$100 near Clark Quay, and internet is really cheap here at SGD$5 per day.(for geeky guys perhaps, since guys don’t need a lot of space, bed + internet should make them quite happy already)
