BANGKOK GETAWAY!

Hiiiii yall! This is my first entry with my new blog layout and I'm super pleased with it :)
Really happy as I managed to figure the entire thing out by myself, found a base template and then decided to make my own changes to it and I'm really happy with the results! 
There's still some stuff that I would like to add tho but slowly, once I get nice pictures I will definitely add them in to be part of the template! 

Another visual post today for you all, for those who didn't know I flew to Bangkok last week with Sophia! It was a really last minute decision as I felt like leaving SG, ended up booking a flight 3 days before the actual day itself and found myself back in +66. 
 Bunked in with Soph at Glow/Pratunam Hotel, it was my first time staying there as I haven't been staying within Pratunam for quite awhile! I miss staying right in the heart of all the shopping tho haha
The hotel was really clean and spacious I must say, ample space for us to dump all our shopping goods lol

Since we only had 3 short days, we barely had time to stop and rest. Spent the day shopping and walking the whole of Pratunam and Platinum before heading back to freshen up!


 For dinner we traveled to Thonglor to have Mellow! The last time I ate at Mellow was last year before we partied for Sofie's birthday, how time flies... it's been over a year already omg.

Since I was craving the crepe cake from Audrey, we took a short stroll over to get some cakes!!!
 Yea.. while waiting for our cakes to be packed I insisted to take pictures around the really outdoor compound of Audrey, only to have really weird expressions. Hahahahahahha

Our last day calls for last minute errands... woke up extra early just to get nice outfits pictures.
 but too bad I was afraid of the sun!
 Nevertheless... I tried. Haha I managed to get some nice shots tho hehe.
Anyway these shots are for none other than @carrislabelle / www.carrislabelle.com 
Thank You for sending me the Asymmetrical Skirt as well as the tweed bag!! Both are really lovely :)


We popped over to Centralworld for brunch! There's a new wing which just opened and they have quite a number of new cafes/restuarants. I can't wait to go back again to check the rest of the restuarants out as they're all really very nicely decorated! It's a pity as it was our last day as we really wanted to try a few of them out :(

In the end we settled at Hyde and Seek / Peek-a-Boo since they were serving All Day Breakfast!
Apparently the chef of the restaurant was a winner of Thailand's Iron Chef....? If what the waitress told me was correct, yeah. Haha




As usual I ordered my Eggs Benedict! I was quite surprised tho that the dish was served rather differently from the other egg benedicts I've tried! Instead of bacon the pork was more of... roasted pork? Haha



 Overall we were quite pleased with the food! However it can come up to slighty pricier than the food you find else where (in Bangkok) In total we paid about $50ish SGD for 3 dishes and a pot of tea. It's an okay price if you're eating in Singapore but for Bangkok... slightly expensive I must say :/

 Since we had time to kill we walked around Central and had desserts followed by a nice hour long foot massage before heading back to the hotel to leave for the airport!


Although it was only 3 days I'm glad that I took the time to head back! I love Bangkok so much I don't think I will ever get sick of going back, blogging about it makes me wanna go back even more. Looking forward to my next trip in Oct! X

ACCEXXORIES_ BY PONY

Helloooo TGIF!!!
I'm sure everyone is out and about getting all busy for their weekend ahead, I can't believe this is my 1289729846427th Friday night spent at home. Not sure why but I kinda dislike heading out on Friday nights as everywhere is soooo crowded! *faints* Be it taking the public transport, finding something to eat, watching a movie, walking.. breathing.. omg everything. Hahaha, I kinda figured that it was better to seek some zen and peace on Friday nights at home :) 

so let's put ranting aside, for those who're spending your night at home like me and reading this update, I would like to share that I have recently launched a new accessories collection online! This collection can be found in the Marketplace under the tab above ^
it's not a super huge collection so there's only about 8 designs? I wanted to see what the response would be like and if it's good I might continue to bring in more accessories with pocket friendly prices! :) 
Direct link to the page can be accessed from here >P'S MARKETPLACE: ACCEXXORIES_ BY PONY

Do feel free to check it out and let me know what you think! 
That's about it for my short post tonight, I will be posting a new entry tomorrow on my recent Bangkok trip so do feel free to pop by back here to check it out x
For the rest, I hope you have a smashin weekend ahead :)

SAMSUNG GALAXY TAB S

I am happy to say that this year I have received the first tablet ever in my life!
And I couldn't be more thankful to Samsung for giving me the opportunity to experience the Samsung Galaxy Tab S :) 
As a movie fanatic, I have always wanted a tablet to enhance my movie watching experiences so it was always on my list to own a tablet where I could load all my movies and catch them on the go.
Not forgetting how I love travelling, having a tablet would make my trip much easier as now I don't have to lug my laptop around with me!
Out of 2 sizes, (8.4”/10.5”) I picked the 8.4" Titanium Bronze LTE set.
I like that it is portrait orientated and looks just like a bigger version of my phone!

One of the main features that caught my eye first was the ultra slim and sleek design of the tablet, 
this means bringing it around won't be an issue as it's really light and easy to fit into most of my bags
 The next key feature would be one that completely bought me over;
 it's the Super AMOLED Display that the Samsung GALAXY Tab S is equipped with.

With the Super AMOLED Display, you can expect to view visuals with richer colours and deeper contrasts. 
Especially with HD videos, the visuals have never been clearer to me... ever!
I remember downloading my first movie in HD and boasting about the colours to Jackson and I kept going:
"It's damn clear right!?!? Just look at the colours and how clear everything is!"
The first HD movie I downloaded on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S is Divergent! Check out how clear the quality and visuals are :) 
Another feature would be the Adaptive Display. The adaptive display feature automatically adjusts the colour gamut, sharpness, and contrast according to your environment and usage. So for example, if you switch from browsing an e-book to a movie, the screen will readjust its colours and brightness accordingly! There are 3 screen modes that let you choose amongst 
AMOLED Photo, AMOLED Cinema and Basic Mode 

So far I have been taking advantage of the huge screen to browse Facebook, Youtube as well as Instagram and I have to admit that the experience is soooo different from using the phone! Everything seems bigger, brighter and clearer :) 
I can't wait to further explore more of the functions on the Samsung GALAXY Tab S, for all Samsung phone users... do keep out for another function which I will feature in the next post where I go in-depth to some of my favourite apps and functions! 

At the meantime, do pop by any of the Samsung stores to try out the GALAXY Tab S for yourself!

If you're looking for a tablet, you might want to give this device a try :)

BRUNCH DATE / COASTAL SETTLEMENT

A quick visual diary of my brunch date with Sis last week before I flew to Bangkok!

We've been making plans to visit different cafes around SG to have brunch but sadly this is our failed brunch attempt since we visit the Coastal Settlement on a weekday and they didn't have All day Breakfast (probably only on weekends so do note!)
Despite not getting our breakfast food.. we settled on lunch-equivalent food haha 


 We had Truffle Fries, Mushroom Truffle Carbonara and All Cheese Pizza (I think...)
The dishes were pretty mediocre, gotta say that the carbonara was pretty bad tho :/ I think I would be much happier with Pastamania's normal Carnbonara #justsaying 
Nevertheless to make up for the pasta, the pizza was pretty yummy so we managed to find something that we were happy to enjoy :) 

 Tams suggested dessert so we had waffles and ice cream! I loved the dessert as well!
It was perfectly baked waffles along with a scoop of chocolate ice cream, yummy :) 

Overall I thought TCS was pretty... so-so. I wouldn't go back if I could tho, mainly cos location wise it wouldn't be convenient for me as I don't own a car. Secondly I feel that there would be places with better western cuisine. However, if given another chance I might go back once more to check out the breakfast menu! :)

OUTERWEAR: KOREA

 why did I agree to tammy to standing in between the plants..... hahahahahahaha

ELIXIR JUICE SG

Today I will be sharing with you guys one of my new found addiction- Cold Pressed Juices!
I have always been a fan of fruit juices, if I'm out and I have to get something to drink, it would either be water or (if available) fresh juice :) 
Not a huge fan of soft drinks so if I get to pick it would be juice anytime! 

However, juices sold from the normal stores you find everywhere are mostly made with a centrifugal juicer. A Centrifugal juicer uses blades that spins at more than 3000rounds/min which generates lots of heat that ends up destroying all vitamins and minerals.. bummer zzz :(
So how can we enjoy a nice glass of juice yet reap the benefits and vitamins from the fruits/veggies
without getting them destroyed? Here's where ELIXIR JUICE SG comes in! 

ELIXIR JUICE SG supplies a variety of freshly made cold pressed juice made with hydraulic pressed juicer to extract juices from fruits and vegetables. Retention of vitamins and minerals are 
more than 400% when using hydraulic power to "sqeeeze" 
the juices out as compared to a centrifugal juicer.
Juices are made after your order is taken and delivered fresh so you don't have to worry about them being pre-pressed or delivered stale. So here are my juices which were being delivered to me! 

Right now there are 32 types of juices to choose from on ELIXIR JUICE SG, all made out from a combination of fruits and vegetables. These juices were developed to serve as a rich source of nutrients
and to compliment your daily meals. 
In fact, you can drink it with your meals or have it as a meal itself!
There is a minimum order of 6 bottles so you can customize your juice package from the list of juices available on the site. For my package I had the,
(from left) x2 Princess Elixir, Pomegranate, x2 Breakfast Fruit Buffet and Weight Shifter 
I was so happy to receive them for myself as well as to share with my family as they love juices too!!!

There are in fact, many benefits from drinking these cold pressed juices...
What I love about the juices on ELIXIR JUICE SG are that it fits into an everyday lifestyle so well! 
Unlike other juices we find out there which has programmes/detox programmes, the benefits from these programmes are only temporary. However to enjoy the long term benefits from these juices, it's good to drink them on a regular basis! Thankfully the juices from ELIXIR JUICE SG are very reasonably priced hence drinking them regularly wouldn't burn a hole in your pocket on the long run ;)
 Here's me trying out my first bottle of ELIXIR JUICE SG - Breakfast Fruit Buffet
This juice contains: Orange, Blueberries, Banana and Lime
"It is commonly said that good things comes in small packages. This is especially true for Breakfast Fruit Buffet as it is packed with the rich benefits of Blueberries, Oranges, Lime and Banana. Blueberries is known to contain more antioxidants than any other fresh fruits. These neutralizes free radicals which are introduced into the body through exposure to smoke, toxins and pesticides, thereby boosting the immune system. Taking a glass of Breakfast Fruit is necessary for the general well-being of the body, revitalizing you, keeping you refreshed all day long"
 At first taste it was a little citrusy, after a few more sips I could taste the blueberries followed by a little hint of banana. I had it chilled so it was a really nice and refreshing drink to have in the morning!
Also, I could have this entire bottle for breakfast alone as 1 bottle was enough to fill me up and yet provide me with tons of nutrients to start my day off with :) 

Of course you don't have to have this for breakfast alone, you can enjoy a glass of it with your meal and drink the rest later in the afternoon! 
 Here's a close up of the juice where you can see the bits and pieces of fruits! 
The texture is unlike the normal juice, it's slightly thick (like a smoothie) yet healthy, after one glass I truly am in love with this juice!!!
I like how just one bottle is sufficient for me and easy to carry around so I can just
pop it in my bag if I'm heading out and enjoy my juice while I'm running errands! :)

Here's something great for you readersELIXIR JUICE SG is glad to offer a $4 gift-card for
those of you reading this so remember to quote " $4giftcardelixir " and enjoy this little discount
while purchasing! :)

I would truly recommend you guys to give ELIXIR JUICE SG a shot as I am truly hooked!

GUIGA

First official meal after I got back from Bangkok, some K-BBQ!




Didn't really think this place was good tho... slightly overpriced/overcooked steam egg with chao-tah taste and.... just pretty much meh? Haha I think I like Superstar K better! Nevertheless it was a great evening spent. Caught the Expendables 3 over the weekends too and I thought it was awesome!

*Also, I'm thinking of selling away my Fujifilm X100s in Silver
*SOLD*
