I first discovered @knots_cafe_and_living when I was searching for cafés near my office, and I was so stoked to find this quiet little haven 🍃 just steps away from the realities of office life, especially during non-peak hours when the Boss and I sneaked in some coffee time. 🤭

While their coffee isn't the best, it's good enough to satisfy our caffeine fix ☕, paired with a delicious cake🍰🍭 to round off an indulgent afternoon.

Even though I no longer work in the area, I do drop by occasionally to bask in the lush greenery of the café... I really do miss the quiet non-peak hours though! So looking forward to trying more places this weekend! 😋♥️♥️

Mondays can only mean one thing: $3 𝙎𝙖𝙡𝙢𝙤𝙣 𝙈𝙖𝙙𝙣𝙚𝙨𝙨 (5 pcs of Salmon Sashimi) at one of my long-time haunts, @standingsushibar !!! 😍♥️♥️

@standingsushibar has been feeding me well since my student days, and boy was I impressed by the superb service provided at the Odeon Towers outlet. It was wayyyy better than I remembered it to be, and these juicy, thick cuts of Salmon Belly 🤤🤤 have gotta be my all-time favourite item at this joint. Even better when washed down with a pint of @asahisg 🍻😁😁💋

My eyes are tinted with happiness at this beautifully pulled Swan on that gorgeous cuppa crema. 😍😍♥️ Can't tell you how much good coffee and intricately pulled latte art always makes my day! 🌈🌈

This beauty was pulled on a single shot Flat White, but I would highly recommend a double shot at @theglasshousesg simply cos' it contains more of that coffee goodness. 😆♥️☕☕♥️ And also, that deliciously nutty coffee with slight floral notes is a definite mood lifter.

A pity this place is always packed though, I was lucky to snag a seat without queueing, but even on weekday afternoons, this place is packed so would recommend to visit at off-peak hours!

Let me count the ways I'm completely in love with @kurasusg 𝘿𝙞𝙧𝙩𝙮 𝙈𝙖𝙩𝙘𝙝𝙖... 😋🍵🍵🍵 Beautifully pulled latte art, earthy Matcha and shots of Espresso☕. What more could I ask for? 🥰🍃

花开富贵, 迎新年!🧧🧨🧨🧨 How beautiful is this seasonal handmade special by @lees_confectionery aptly named 🏵️𝑷𝑶𝑴𝑷🏵️, an ode to the ceremonious and splendid display of spring flowers? 🌸🌸🌸

With a base of 𝑮𝒓𝒂𝒑𝒆𝒇𝒓𝒖𝒊𝒕 𝑪𝒉𝒆𝒆𝒔𝒆𝒄𝒂𝒌𝒆 🍊 and 𝑪𝒓𝒆𝒂𝒎 𝑪𝒉𝒆𝒆𝒔𝒆 🧀, lovingly topped by hand with tangy 𝑭𝒓𝒆𝒔𝒉 𝑷𝒐𝒎𝒆𝒍𝒐 ❤️, I really enjoyed the contrasting fruity, tangy and savoury flavours and the clean, cookie crust. Best of all, it wasn't too sweet and I easily polished the entire thing on my own in a few minutes! 🤭❤️❤️❤️ Please try it while it's still available this CNY season!!! Huat Ah!!!

𝙈𝙤𝙘𝙝𝙖🍫☕
𝙇𝙚𝙢𝙤𝙣 𝙈𝙚𝙧𝙞𝙣𝙜𝙪𝙚 𝘾𝙖𝙠𝙚 🍋
𝙇𝙖𝙫𝙚𝙣𝙙𝙚𝙧 𝙀𝙖𝙧𝙡 𝙂𝙧𝙚𝙮 𝘾𝙖𝙠𝙚💜

My fave ☕ was the 𝙍𝙤𝙖𝙨𝙩𝙚𝙙 𝘼𝙡𝙢𝙤𝙣𝙙 𝙇𝙖𝙩𝙩𝙚 which is one of the best coffees I've had out of the entire @craftsmenspecialtycoffee menu, with a nutty roasted flavour elevating the taste of the coffee beans. 👍🏻❤️

Both cakes were delicious, but the 𝙇𝙖𝙫𝙚𝙣𝙙𝙚𝙧 𝙀𝙖𝙧𝙡 𝙂𝙧𝙚𝙮 𝘾𝙖𝙠𝙚 blew my mind with its light yet creamy texture, and perfected the delicate balance of floral notes from the Earl Grey, as well as aroma from Lavender flowers.

Service here is not exactly stellar, but if you're looking for a quiet, no frills place serving up good coffee and cakes, this is definitely a great teatime option! 😋☕❤️

Most of us know @lees_confectionery for their exquisite handcrafted pastries, but did you know that they serve up a mean cup of @tionghoespecialtycoffee as well? 🥰

For Westies, that's awesome news, isn't it? You can have your cake, and a delicious cuppa at this no frills minimalistic café in the Jurong area! Yayyyyy!!! 😋😋😋🍰🍭

One of the best things that came out from this pandemic, was the time and opportunity to rediscover local traditional food that I used to enjoy as a kid!😋😋🇸🇬🇲🇾

𝘼𝙣𝙜 𝙆𝙪 𝙆𝙪𝙚𝙝 (Literally translated as 𝙍𝙚𝙙 𝙏𝙪𝙧𝙩𝙡𝙚 𝘾𝙖𝙠𝙚 🐢❤️) symbolizes Prosperity, Longevity and Wealth, and is NOT made out of turtles. LOLS~~

It is a small round or oval-shaped Chinese pastry with soft, sticky glutinous rice flour skin traditionally wrapped around a sweet filling of Mung Bean Paste or Sugared Peanuts 🥜, and molded to resemble a turtle shell and presented on a square piece of banana leaf. These days, they come in all sorts of colours and fillings 🌈, but it's rare to come across a perfectly thin yet chewy skin with just the right amount of filling. @jixiangconfectionery has gotten this done pat, and I was elated at how all the flavours came together so perfectly without overwhelming the tastebuds.

Definitely worth a stop if you're café hopping in the Duxton or Everton Park area! 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻❤️❤️❤️

On rainy days like these, having warm 𝘽𝙪𝙩𝙩𝙚𝙧 𝙉𝙖𝙖𝙣 to soak up that deliciously savoury Yogurt 🥛 and Tomato-based 🍅 𝘽𝙪𝙩𝙩𝙚𝙧 𝘾𝙝𝙞𝙘𝙠𝙚𝙣 sauce is one of those guilty pleasures of mine that make me incredibly happy.

Delightfully flavourful and elevated with strong spices, Indian food is one of my weak spots, and I'm not just talking about the quintessential 𝙍𝙤𝙩𝙞 𝙋𝙧𝙖𝙩𝙖 or 𝙍𝙤𝙩𝙞 𝘾𝙖𝙣𝙖𝙞 (depending on which side of the Causeway you're on. 😆) 🇸🇬🇲🇾
