One of the recent places that I dined at recently. This restaurant is tucked in the quiet area of Portsdown. My first time in this area, the surroundings looks kinda creepy but I love the cosy & rustic restaurant setting. It's great for both dates and gatherings.

I'd say the food is pretty good. Worth a try if you'd take the effort to get there.

As usual I'm usually so hungry that I forgot to take pix of the food save for the dessert.

More food updates soon!

ST App recommendation : Just being overweight has risks

Sharing and article from Straits Times online.

Just being overweight has risks

NEW YORK - LUGGING around a few extra kilos? One of the largest studies to look at health and weight finds that you don't have to be obese to raise your risk of premature death. Merely being overweight carries some risk, too.Obesity increases the risk of death from heart disease, stroke and certain cancers. But whether being merely overweight contributes to an early death as well has been uncertain and controversial. Some research has suggested being a little pudgy has little effect or can even be a good thing.

Words from a book I read.

The thought manifests as the word,
The word manifests as the deed,
The deed develops into a habit,
And the habit hardens into character,
Do watch the thought and it's way with care,
And let it spring from love
Born out of concern for all beings.

It says it echoes what the Buddha said more than 2500yrs ago. "We are what we think. All that we arises with our thoughts. With out thoughts we make the world."

It all makes sense to me but thoughts are hard to control. I have to be more conscious of what goes on in my mind.

Spain updates

This Madrid trip marks the first European country that I have visited. Lovely city!

Some pix fr my iPhone.

Day 1: scouting around hotel area

1st dinner in Spain. Beer, paella, half chicken, pasta, tapas. We over-ordered, over-ate and over-spent.

Day 2:

Streets r quiet even at 9am.

Breakfast at Mac. Not so cheap.

Visit to Museo Del Prado. Lovely!
No cameras allowed inside though - pity.


Soccer Time!!!
Real Madrid Vs Espanol
I'm no soccer fan but I got really excited once I stepped into the stadium. No Ronaldo fan but got excited watching him live in action. Worth the time and $. Highlight of my trip!

Massive! Stadium for 80k.


This is how high the stadium goes.

More updates soon!


I've gone half vegetarian for the last few days. Monk says that if we do that Grandma will accumulate credits and go to heaven.

Hope I can last!

Hello Kitty Mahjong

We were surprised to c a Hello Kitty case being auctioned at a 7th month dinner.

And my colleague got it for $338.

Turns out it's a damn pretty set of original Hello Kitty mahjong set. Cool!!!

Too bad I can't play the game, else I'll counter bid.

Baby broke down

Zzzz started out a good day. Woke up very early and started my day young.

After just 1 appointment, on my way to lunch. Baby suddenly sputtered. And dragged.

After barely 5 metres, I gave up trying in case the engine really died.

And then I called Cycle to come tow my car. Made a fuss about me having juz done a full servicing and paid about $2.2k. And then it broke down after just a week?

After waiting for 45 min in the drizzle. Tow truck finally came. Was really paranoid about the cars banging into the stationery vehicle even with the triangle plate. So i stood there with my red GE umbrella.

* Baby on Tow. Heartbroken. Pls don't make me spend more $$!

Singapore Garden Festival

I had a great day out last week at the Singapore Garden Festival with Ming & my parents. It's really a large hall for the main exhibit and I got really tired just viewing the 6th floor.

Just post up some of my favourite displays!

Thursday, July 15


Spotted this post in one of the local magazines. I may not be great in reading chinese but itreally puzzled me.

* The picture is a Gucci leh.... but the below text is LV? That Gucci wallet doesn't seems like it costs $700.

* but her profile pic shows her carrying the mentioned LV wallet. She mentioned a Coach in the interview though.

Puzzled. Or maybe I just didn't read the article properly.

Comment on "Siem Reap 2010"

I was very surprised to see the comment from the hotel I stayed in when I was at Siem Reap. This is the first time I seen such response from a place I blogged before. This is really quite nice way of keeping in touch with the guests.

You may have some idea of the kind of service you'll get there!

For some reason I was unable to publish the comment. So here it is!

Dear Pink Diary,

Thank you for choosing our resort while you were on holiday recently. It is gratifying that the Angkor Palace Resort & Spa played some part in your enjoyment of Cambodia and we hope it is not too long before we have the pleasure to welcome you and your family back, we remain.

Best regards,
Hang Vannak eCommerce Manager on behalf the entire Management & StaffAngkor Palace Resort & Sp – A SUMMIT Hotels & ResortsSiem Reap, Kingdom of Cambodia

Siem Reap June 2010

* before i set off for Siem Reap. did some damage. I can never resist a cute palette!

* Siem Reap airport. A small place but it's really quite pretty. Like a resort.

* our lodging. Angkor Palace Resort. Great place and good value! We paid about SGD 90/night per pax. 5 star facilities and service.

* temples galore. Took us about 1 day plus to complete trekking through most of the temples. Had to skip some cuz it's too tiring!

* 2nd morning we chartered a tuk tuk to see the sunrise. Set off at 5am in the morning.

* sunrise at Angkor Wat. Lovely sight!

* settled into the tuk tuk. Just too lazy to get down and visit the last few temples.

* night out at the pub. cheap for singapore standards. the places are all quite chic!

* tomb raider.

* passed by padi fields.

* hotel rooms * what am I doing by the pool? I don't swim and I don't like the sun!

* my favourite hotel facility! the golf range! had a great time there. and was lucky a nice japanese man helped to coach me. Though he hardly spoke English, I managed to catch all his pointers. Fun practice!

*local roadside dishes. reminds me of BKK. suitable for me!

I say Siem Reap is worth a trip! But don't plan for a long trip. Thought there's just Angkor Wat worth visiting and take some time to enjoy the hotel facilities if you choose a good resort!
