Swimming

I am so glad that we went for a quick swim today, despite checking the weather forecast earlier in the day. It is said to rain with thunder in the West area. But when we were there, the weather though dark, there is no rain and no glaring sun, saving my skin from sunburn. Hoho..


The happiest part of the swim is, the pool today is open to public for free. This is part of the program for ActiveSG. Triple happiest. I'm so glad we went swimming today.

Privé Café

Saturday morning with girlfriends at Privé Café. A very nice place, located next to many docked yatches. The Cafe is not as easy to access, as it is located on the Keppel Island, hence, we took a cab in from VivoCity as I'm very lazy to walk in.

Here's what we had.


Homestyle Pancakes- $13.00 - Fluffy pancake stack served with fresh strawberries, bananas, honeycomb & whipped cream. Choice of maple syrup or gula melaka syrup.
My order for the day. I love the plating of the pancakes, especially with the fresh red strawberries on top. The pancakes were fluffy and delicious.

Eggs Benedict - $16.00 - Traditional English muffins topped with smoked leg ham, streaky bacon, gently poached eggs & creamy Hollandaise sauce
With the eggs oozing out onto the muffin, you will wish to start on the food immediately before they turn cold while taking photos.

Privé’s Ultimate Brekkie - $20.00 - 2 eggs (any style), 6-inch chicken Frankfurter, maple-roasted bacon, roasted Roma tomato, sautéed …

Garfield Run

JC shared with us that there's a Garfield Run in Singapore on 19 July 2014 at The Promontory @ Marina Bay. And initially, I was not that keen until ... I went in to see the details. Melted~ I love the cute tshirt and medals that is included in the run. There is also a Limited Edition Garfield Run 2014 plush entitled to all registered runners.


This run is more like a family, fun run, as the distance is at most 5KM. And there are two competitive categories for children. Of course, there are also the non competitive run categories. So active parents, sign up together with your active, sporty children for the cutesy run. Sign up before 18 May 2014 for the Early Bird registration for all the categories.

Here are the categories.
3KM Garfield Fun Run (Open)3KM Family Package (2 Adult & 2 Children)5KM Garfield & Arlene Couple Run (Competitive)2.2KM Garfield Kids Dash (Competitive)1.5KMGarfield Run for Kids (Competitive)
This is the Garfield Run Tshirt, and oh my, it is just too cut…

Redmi is coming home

Today Xiaomi Singapore had another online sale of 7500 sets of the Redmi phones ($169). It was the Nth time they had an online sale. I had failed to place an order from the previous sales. They were all snatched up too quickly, within minutes. And I thought I had been pretty fast.

And... Today, I am one lucky girl. I had managed to place an order for the handset. Yippie. Three cheers for me! Hip hip hurray!


I am SO SO SO happy to see the paypal payment page. And I was even more happy when I got my order confirmation page.


So now, all I have to do, is wait for the handset to be shipped and reach my home. Dang. I wonder how long will it take to reach home.


The phone is actually the hubby's order. I am just the purchaser. Ever since the Redmi is on sale from February 2014, we had been trying our luck but were bumped. The hubby wanted to try out this new phone, especially with the attractive price, and then consider getting it for the FIL (provided we get the luck the next time round)…

Dentiste Plus White Toothpaste & Kiss You Ionic Toothbrush

How would you like to wake up with a fresh breath and cleaner teeth and gums every morning?


Having tried the Dentiste Plus White Toothpaste and the Kiss You Ionic Toothbrush for more than a week, I can feel the difference from the moment I used them. On my first brush with the Dentiste Plus White Toothpaste, my entire mouth feels all freshened up. It is my first time using a toothpaste with a hygienic pump, which ensures longer lasting quality. So there's no worry about losing the refreshing taste after some time. My teeth and gums felt very clean and refreshed when I first used the Kiss You Ionic Toothbrush. The innovative ionic action of the toothbrush allows the teeth to let go of plaque easily like turning off a magnet.

I wake up to a fresher breath and cleaner teeth and gums every morning, and I like that feeling.

Dentiste Plus White Toothpaste - $10.00/100gWhy Dentiste’?  Regular toothpastes are not able to effectively control oral bacteria; therefore, we still have bad breath…

Skechers Electric Run Singapore

The Skechers Electric Run is finally in Singapore. It has been very much anticipated by my sister and I since December. We wanted to go for the run for the sake of fun, although the race is pretty much on the pricey side. We had signed up for the Standard Registration Package ($68) that includes Runners’ Pack of an Electric Run® T-shirt, Skechers Bag, race bib, LED bracelet and pair of glow glasses.

On the day the registration opened, the online system created much disappointment and bad experience. The system was down for hours due to the high traffic and pretty soon, the early bird registration has been all snapped up. We could only register under the normal price of $78. And I was also shocked that we had to pay an additional $3 per person on registration. Sighs... This run is really very pricey.

Luckily Skechers Electric Run announced that due to the system being overloaded, people who registered on the first day get to enjoy the early bird price and will be crediting back the dif…

Happy April's Fool

It's April's Fool's day today. Has anyone been pranked yet? There were two different sets of viral videos that had been circulating on the internet the past few days. And both were just marketing tactics.

First, Ikea "leaked "a footage of someone actually staying and "living" on the premises of its showrooms, together with photos taken from their CCTV.


Here's the article: http://news.insing.com/feature/woman-treats-ikea-showroom-like-her-home/id-703e3101
And here's the Ikea revealing that the video was an April Fool's gag:

Next, the new season of The Noose. There are three videos of a woman in sunglasses berating her husband for cheating on her with a younger woman in public.



Here's the article revealing the video's intent: http://news.insing.com/feature/real-or-staged-woman-catches-husband-red-handed-on-bus/id-723e3101
