In September, I flew to the UK for a pretty short trip with my parents as well as my Aunt and her husband. There wasn't much we had planned for this trip apart from getting away from Singapore as well as the hazy weather.. And visiting the area where my Uncle owned a place at! 
Just so you know for this trip I didn't get to set foot in London, instead we went to Eastborne! I have visited London before about 4-5 years ago so this time it was decided that we checked out somewhere else out of London where the environment and surroundings would be much different :) 

Eastborne is located at the south coast of England within East Sussex, it's pretty near the sea and surrounded by the countryside so it's a nice place to visit if you would like to relax and get away from the city.It takes about a 2.5hour drive from Heathrow airport to get to Eastborne. My uncle's house is really just a stone's throw away from Sovereign Harbour and it is literally just next to the sea! 
 Sovereign Harbour
I cannot emphasise on how I absolutely love the UK.. everything from the buildings, the weather to the people and how amazing everything is. The harbour was really beautiful, it's a little bit like one degree 15, only much nicer and well..... the weather wasn't exactly a bitch to take a long stroll in. Hahah

We didn't do much while we were in Eastborne except for spending a lot of time travelling from one place to another (because there was ALOT of land to cover lol) so one other place we popped by while were there was the Seven Sisters Country Park (below) It is such a beautiful park.. there, you can take nice long walks, have a picnic, lay on the grass, bird/animal watch rent a bike to ride through the park or even canoe! We didn't make plans to do any of the activities there but if given a chance I would definitely come back to spend an entire day just relaxing there. Too good to be missed!
While taking a slow walk with my parents it really did give me the time to look around and appreciate nature at it's best. I cannot even begin to explain how much I love the smell of the cool air, fresh grass.. and the smell of the country. It is really something I don't get to experience everyday and just knowing then and there, where I stood... everything was breathtakingly amazing and I couldn't be thankful for being there. Sigh.. I really miss the UK already :(

 Stopped by a nice little inn nearby for tea and we had.. scones!!! One of my favourite English snacks! 
Annnnnnnnd yeah, we spent a total of 3 days in Eastborne but as there was a lot of travelling involved there wasn't much that we did. Aside of those places mentioned above we visited family, went grocery shopping and basically just relaxed hence.. not a lot of pictures from then. Shared what I thought would be worth sharing so yeah. If you're planning a trip to the UK do try and see if you can plan a few extra days just to explore other areas apart from London, the countryside is really worth visiting... at least once in your life right? :) 

So I shall end here for now, in my next post I will be covering the Harry Potter Studios as well as Prague! More pictures to be up in those posts so do check back if you can hehe. 
Thank you for reading X

Hellooooooo, yours truly is back! I just returned from a trip to UK as well as Czech Republic and I took soooo many pictures I can't wait to share them here! If you have followed me on instagram (@ponyyzz) you probably might have seen my uploads from there but I will be posting more in this space so do keep a lookout!
 The highlight of my trip this time was definitely visiting the Harry Potter studio! I will do a standalone post on the Harry Potter studio because I feel it deserves to shine all by itself LOL #wordsofafan 

So yes.. do be prepared to be flooded with my vacation postings in a bit!!!

Today I am really excited to share with you guys my first ever experience in a "Real Escape Game" So for those of you guys who have no clue what these games are, basically you and your group of friends will be locked up in a themed room filled with clues and puzzles which you have to solve in order to be able to escape within the given time.
I have heard of these real escape games a lot as I think the popularity of these games have spread amongst many Singaporean during the recent years but I haven't found the time to actually plan a day out to try them out. Thankfully, I was invited by LOST SG to try out their games and that was when I decided, WHY NOT?! I decided to grab my group of friends whom have played these games before at other places so at least I know a newbie like me wouldn't be stuck!
LOST SG is located in Peace Center, super convenient if you and your friends are in town and pretty clueless on what you can do.. Well, you can always make a trip down and try out these games for yourself! 

Upon reaching we had to do some registration just for safety precautions, we had a locker to keep all of our stuff in as you wouldn't be able to bring any sort of technology or materials into the room! For that evening, we were going to to play the themed room Exodus. Currently they have a total of 5 rooms, you can view each and everyone of them with their story here:  http://lost.sg/games/
Basically the story of Exodus would be along the lines of escaping the clutches of the Pharaoh and finding freedom! I didn't get a chance to bring my camera into the rooms to snap pictures of our experience as I didn't want to ruin anything but here's a peek into the first room! 
My thoughts and opinions?
I would say that as a first timer at these games I truly enjoyed myself! At some point I was really amazed with the technology equipped within the rooms to make the experience even more interesting. It wasn't just about finding clues in boxes or scribbled on the wall.. it was way more than that and I was honestly very amazed and baffled at how high-tech and engaging it was. Certain 'puzzles' might require more than one person to solve so I find that really good as it would highly require the combined efforts of everyone which would evoke a really good sense of teamwork!
This will make an extremely good team bonding activity! :) 
In the end we managed to break free! Well I would admit it took us a few attempts of buzzing through the intercom and asking for clues (LOL) we escaped! This was really a new and really fun experience for me and no doubt I wouldn't mind going back to try out the other maps. My friends themselves too loved the experience and the highly interactive system and said that this was probably one of the best places they have played in compared to some other escape games! I was happy when I heard that so I know that my first time was worth it :D

LOST SG Hall of Participation
Lining the halls of LOST SG you'll see tons of people who have came and conquered! I was shocked when I saw it cos there was soooooo many! Upon completion you will get to snap a picture and have it up on Lost SG's Facebook page !
Keen to try out LOST SG for yourself? Grab your team of friends and make a booking today! While playing don't forget to think out of the box and keep your eyes peeled at every single thing, you will never know if an unsuspecting item could be one of the most vital clues that will lead you to your grand escape! :)
Lastly, a huge thank you to LOST SG for hosting us!

I'm not sure about most of you but for my friends and I, we tend to get our cravings for Bak Kut Teh every once in awhile. Best thing about Bak Kut Teh is that you can have if at anytime of the day. Breakfast, lunch, dinner and now... even Supper!

My favourite style of Bak Kut Teh will be the Teochew style which can be found in most places in Singapore. This is the one with the peppery soup base as compared to the other style which is mostly served in a claypot and has a much herbal taste to it.

Eunos MRT Bak Kut Teh
So recently I had the time to pop by a friend's family run business, which is the Eunos MRT Bak Kut Teh. No prizes guessing where this place is as the name says it all, just a stone's throw away from the Eunos Mrt Station. Previously the stall was located in Paya Lebar as 
"星都肉骨茶" then they relocated to Eunos in 1994 and has been there since then :) 
This makes is really easy to visit since it's situated right next to the MRT station!
 We had the braised pig trotters, intestines, You Tiao, Tau Kee, Salted Vegetables and of course.. Pork ribs! 
For this post I will jump into some of the main dishes that we had. 
Braised Pork Trotters
This has probably got to be one of my favourite dishes and one that I love! Don't underestimate the size of the bowl as there's a fairly good portion of meat that I could find inside. The meat is soft and tender and really tasty! The sauce was just nice, not too salty nor oily which makes this dish really easy to enjoy. 

Pig Intestines
 I'm usually not a fan of pig intestines but the ones here are well cooked in their speciality sauce which goes well with rice. The intestines are well cleaned to avoid the 'smell' that would usually come when it isn't washed throughly. The texture is also cooked to the right amount of chewy!

Bak Kut Teh
And then of course there is the main dish- BKT! Not sure about you but I'm a huge fan of the peppery soup type of BKT. I was instantly drawn to the soup as it had the right amount of pepper, paired with the sweetness of the pork, this dish had the perfect balance.
The pork used is fresh and cooked to the right texture, and the meat slides off the bone really easy and the combination with the rice and other dishes just made the dish really delicious!
Overall I definitely enjoyed my dinner at Eunos Bak Kut Teh and I'm glad know that this hidden jem isn't located far from where I stay (yay for me!!!) and for those who lives in the East why not pop by and patronise when your BKT craving kicks in!

As a girl we all desire bright and glowing skin don't we? Well do you know that Vitamin C actually plays a huge role in ensuring that your skin stays radiant and bright? I don't think I have mentioned it before here but I have been religiously taking supplements for my skin and one of the key supplements I consume is Vitamin C! Not only does it boost your immune system but it helps with your complexion as well :) 

Now of course when I heard about the Vitamin C Therapy treatment, I knew I had to try it. As far as anything goes that will help me achieve a brighter complexion, I am down for it! 
This treatment ensures that your skin absorbs every bit of the medical grade Vitamin C essence, with the help of a skin ionizer!
On the (left) above you can see that my skin looked really dull.. as well as those dark eye circles present from lack of sleep. Really made my complexion as a whole really hard to look at especially without make up. I just looked really pale :( However on the (right) above, you can see that results are definitely visible after one session! My skin is brighter and much radiant looking as compared to before! I didn't adjust the lighting in both pictures so it's really the effect that I got from the Vitamin C treatment itself :) 
Managed to get superbly nice and pretty skin in time for my birthday week! 
If you have problems with dull, uneven skin tone or even pigmentation, I would definitely recommend trying out this treatment! Or if you are having issues with your skin and would like help on consultation do not hesitate to call Atlas Medical to arrange for a visit!!! They have helped with ALOT with my skin so far and I'm really thankful :) 

For more informtion on the treatments and services at Atlas Medical, feel free to call their friendly concierge at 65560829. Also don't forget to make an appointment before heading down!

So I caught 2 movies in the theatres this week and I decided that I will give my two cents worth of how I feel about them. Okay, truth to be told I just think that both were not really worth watching in the theatres so just thought that I would share (hahahaha)
The genre of both movies are along the lines of Thriller, Suspense... Psychological thriller, you get my drift. I have seen my fair share of such movies and so far most of them were great!  
I will give a really brief review as I don't want to give away too much and spoil the movie :)

The Gift

When married couple Simon (Jason Bateman) and Robyn (Rebecca Hall) unexpectedly encounter Gordo (Joel Edgerton), an acquaintance from Simon's past, little do they know that their perfect lives will be thrown into a terrifying tailspin.
WELL... This movies does get you jumping at certain scenes so I would say effort for that. Interesting plot twist at the end but I felt like it could be waaaaaay better! I walked out of the cinema thinking that this movie was pretty boring and kinda sucks but it wasn't until the next day when I saw the second movie...

which brings us to, Return To Sender
A nurse living in small town goes on a blind date with a man who is not the person he says he is.
I honestly had really high hopes for this movie seeing how well Rosamund Pike did in Gone Girl. (I thought Gone Girl was such a good movie) Hence I walked into the theatres expecting this movie to meet my expectations. BUT omg, just when I thought The Gift was boring this was worst. Tons of dialogues, long and draggy scenes with one of the crappiest endings ever! Got us wondering how did the movie ever made it into the theatres?!? I would highly suggest NOT watching this in cinemas.
It was truly a disappointment :(

This was the first time I have watched 2 bad movies within a week.. not quite ready to face another disappointment soon. However, Inside Out will be out today so I'm trying my best to be hopeful for it! It had better not fail me as I've been looking forward to watch it since forever!
