Truffle Risotto @ Paddy Hills

I had a lovely dinner at Paddy Hills. Paddy Hills is a posh bistro that serves tasty-looking meals and desserts.

Rise and Grind.

I ordered the truffle risotto. It was served with boneless chicken wings, mushrooms and some crispy cheese. Upon trying some, my taste buds tingled with delight! It was certainly a great meal to me.

My brother chose the roast chicken. It was served with some corn bread and sweet potato sauce. The corn bread and sweet potato sauce were such a good combination! (Somehow I love eating everyone else's food.)

For our appetizer, we ordered some truffle fries served with a cup of truffle mayo. They too were delicious! To go with it, a cool and refreshing fruity drink, "Feels Like Summer".

The food here was great, but it was the presentation that attracted most of my attention. I think I'll probably be coming again soon!

DC Super Heroes Cafe @ Marina Bay Sands

The DC Super Heroes Cafe at Marina Bay Sands is perfect for DC fans like me! There are lots of cool DC themed chairs, decorations and more! Superman crashing through the wall, Batman's bat signal...

Some were even dedicated to the upcoming Justice League film! There were enough DC products in the store to make a super fan go crazy.

Even the dining areas looked really cool! You could see many pictures of your favorite superheroes like The Flash, Supergirl, Green Lantern etc. Just sitting there made me squeal like a crazy obsessed fangirl!

My brother ordered a Superman burger, and the portion was large! It was served with nachos and cheese in a huge Superman lunch box.

My mom ordered seafood fried rice, which was delicious in her opinion!

For my starter, I chose mushroom soup, and it tasted really good to me.

For my main, I ordered spaghetti bolognese, which is one of my favorite foods!

Dessert, dessert. A Flash ice cream caught my eye (I love The Flash). So, I decided to have it for dessert. It was raspberry and pineapple flavored. Yum!

The statues looked awesome... They were all over the place! Catwoman and The Joker over here...

Overall, I really liked the DC Super Heroes Cafe!

Lunch @ Cafe & Bar Gavroche

Gavroche is a French-style cafe and bar that reminds me a lot of the bistros I visited during my trip to France. I loved the ambience; it was just like any other cafe in France!

I ordered the Saumon Fume. It was served with brioche and was simply magnifique! Smoked salmon had never tasted better in Singapore!

My mom had eggs and caramelized onions served on some toast. I had a slice and thought it tasted unique but delicious at the same time!

I also ordered some vanilla tea to go with my meal. The food here was great and I hope to come again soon!

France June 2017 - Bordeaux

I'm back!

This June, my family and I traveled to France for vacation. We visited many places during the two weeks that we were there.

We arrived at the Charles du Gulle airport after a thirteen hour-long plane ride. As we were starting our trip from Bordeaux, we took the SNF and arrived in Bordeaux just in time for a stroll around the city and dinner!

We played games in the train and tried everything we could to entertain ourselves. It was so quiet in the train that we even managed to take a short nap. 😴 Thankfully, my dad booked us on first class so it was a rather comfortable ride. 😌

After exploring the place a little, we headed straight for our hotel, Aquitain Hotel in Gare Saint Jean. The view from outside our hotel room window was really cool.

Address: 47 Rue Eugène le Roy, 33800 Bordeaux, France

This is one of our hotel room windows.

We took a long walk down, Rue Sainte Catherine, one of the longest shopping streets. It was so full of people!

It is a 1.2 km long pedestrian street and the main shopping street in Bordeaux.

After that, we traveled to Miroir d'eau (or Miroir des Quais), a building with a shallow pool of water in front of it, making it look like a mirror. The way the building reflected off the water was just awesome.

My brother and I jumped about in the water, making our shoes all wet!

AddressPlace de la Bourse, 33000 Bordeaux, France

We also saw lots of cool artifacts around the area. Check out this cool fountain!

My mom also started taking pictures of interesting-looking doors. She calls it her 'Door Series'.

That's all for our stay in Bordeaux. Stay tuned for another 'France June 2017' post! -Alexis ❤

Dessert at Hello Kitty Orchid Garden Cafe @ Changi Airport

Hi everyone!

A while ago I visited the Hello Kitty Orchid Garden Cafe located in Terminal 3 of Changi Airport Singapore! As I came after dinner, I did not have a full meal, just dessert. The place is exploding with cuteness, almost everything there is shaped like the iconic Hello Kitty. I like how there are plants and purple orchids surrounding the insides and outsides of the cafe, which I suspect makes it an 'Orchid Garden'.

I ordered a Hello Kitty rainbow cupcake, which is a sweet vanilla marble cupcake with pink and blue coloring on the insides. It was not too dry, yet not too moist, and I finished it in an instant. IT WAS SO DELICIOUS!!!

My mom ordered a slice of dark chocolate cake which was nice and rich and super adorable! (I think I ate half of it.)

My brother ordered a basket of fries served with some ketchup to share with my dad. He loves fries so he didn't have to think twice when we asked him which side or dessert he wanted.

I really enjoyed my visit to the Hello Kitty Orchid Garden Cafe @ Changi Airport! (ERROR: CUTENESS OVERLOAD...)

A Visit to Pompompurin Cafe @ Orchard Central

Hi everyone!

Recently I made a trip to the Pompompurin Cafe located in Orchard Central Singapore! I was so excited (as you may know, Pompompurin is my favorite Sanrio character). I was in love with the decor of the place, it was like Purin exploded in there! Everything was so yellow... (You could see the hearts in my eyes.)

Although the food was nothing too fantastic, the appearance was really cute. I ordered 'Pompompurin's Coconut Milk Chicken Curry' which is a dish of coconut curry and chicken accompanied with rice. I felt that there was a little too much rice, but the curry was nice and tasty.

My brother ordered 'Bagel's Special: Pancake Tower' which is a a stack of five pancakes served with assorted fruits. The maple syrup and whipped cream are served at the side, with the maple syrup being served in an adorable Pompompurin cup. My brother said that the pancakes were nice and fluffy, so I tried them for myself and they were actually pretty good. I love how the topmost pancake looks like Purin's beret.

My mom ordered the 'Mushroom & Bacon Carbonara' which is basically Carbonara sauce pasta topped with chunks of mushrooms and pieces of bacon. It is served with two slices of bread and a few onion rings. The dipping sauce for the onion rings is also served in a Pompompurin cup.

Next it was time for dessert! I ordered the 'I am Purin🎵 Pompompurin Pudding' which is soft pudding in a see-through Pompompurin cup served with caramel sauce. It was SO CUTE, especially the chocolate covered biscuit on top of the cup of pudding (Purin's beret!!!).

It is truly amazing how just one meal can bring you so much happiness. I was literally DYING over the cuteness overload. Make sure to bring your camera along if you decide to visit!

Lunch at Gudetama Cafe @ Suntec City

Hi everyone!

A few days ago I went to the Gudetama Cafe located in Suntec City Singapore for lunch and not only was the decor super cute, but the food was also really good! Gudetama was all over the place from the chairs, tables and walls to the food!

I ordered the 'Rib 'I' Don't Care', which is beef steak served with a scoop of mashed potatoes, broccoli, carrots and mushroom sauce. The steak was tender and the mash was delicious. I thought that overall the meal was fantastic.

For our beverages, my brother and I ordered the 'Hula Hula' drink and the 'Straw-Very Lazy' drink which are basically fruity sodas. They were really sweet and gassy and amazingly refreshing. Loved them.

I really enjoyed my visit to the Gudetama Cafe @ Suntec City! Hopefully I would be able to visit again soon!
