I went to Hansul – Korean Dining Bar with Rui Yun yesterday. Well, someone recommended me and we were supposed to go. Well, life goes on and obviously we never went there in the end. I’m glad that I still get to try it in the end though. Will I go back there again? Nah, the food quality is just not worth a second try.
We ordered the army stew and the potato cheese pancake. I have never seen a potato cheese pancake and Rui Yun was saying that it is like rosti. So we end up trying it. It’s not that bad but oh well, it’s not something that I would order again.

It was 23 degree celsius last Sunday. This Sunday, it became 33 degree celsius. 10 degree difference in a span of a week. I am not sure if I prefer the cold weather of 23 degree celsius or just the hot weather of 33 degree celsius. Can I have somewhere in between? 28 degree celsius is very much preferred. #SakuraPreferredWeather
I met Huiling 2 days back (Friday, 19 January 2018) and the last time we met was around 1 year ago (the pre-CNY period). Seems like it has became a tradition and we are determined to break it this year. Haha, definitely need to meet up with her more often.
Original plan was to have Beauty in a Pot for dinner but silly/naive me forgot to reserve a seat so by the time I do a walk-in, they said that the next available slot is at 1030pm. Eh, I did a walk-in at 745pm and I have to wait for a few hrs just to have my dinner?! Erm no thanks.
So we went to 49 Seats for dinner instead. It was recommended by Huiling and whoa, she has good recommendations! The food was nice and the environment is pretty chill too. I’m not a picky eater so I am good with most food options.
Huiling ordered smoked duck pasta while I ordered tom yam seafood pasta. Both of us went for meal set which gave us soup of the day (mushroom soup) and iced lemon tea. We also ordered the salted egg popcorn chicken to share too. Lucky Huiling got the 30% discount (maximum discount) when she spun the wheel of discounts too. If it was me, I doubt I will be getting any discount… That’s how “lucky” I am when it comes to getting discounts…
The interior design of the place is also pretty cool too! Just look at the cool decorations on the wall (see below for the photo)!
Will I go there again? Yes definitely for a relaxing TGIF meal or weekend meal.
However, if you are a picky eater and wants superb western food, I wouldn’t recommend you to visit 49 Seats.
So after we had our dinner, I went to get one of my favourite chocolate milk tea with pearls from Koi before we embark on our walking HTHT (heart to heart talk) session. It’s nice to walk and chat at the same time. It’s even better to have a Koi drink on my hands while doing that. Life’s simplest pleasures aren’t that expensive. I also clocked quite a number of calories and step count on my Apple Watch as well. Yay for a healthier lifestyle!

I went to Legoland with Huang Yin and Lay Lian during my Week of Rest last December. I have never been to Legoland so that is quite a refreshing trip. I have never been to Johor Bahru either so that’s my first trip to Johor Bahru too.
I took quite a number of photos and uploaded tons of it on my Instagram. So I shall let the photos do the talking now. Hehe.
We went during the Christmas season and they have this Christmas tree made of lego.
I got myself the gold and silver lego keychains and a ice mould for lego. Hehe.
I actually went to check the souvenir shops and see if I can find any musical themed lego items. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find any.
They have this special section called the Mini World which displays the famous buildings around the Asia (or was it Southeast Asia? I already forgot it…) The one for Singapore is huge. But the one for Malaysia is massive.
To be honest, I read about it and was quite excited to go there and take tons of photos at Mini World. Unfortunately, it is one of the last stations that we went at Legoland and we were running out of time since we have a 4ish pm bus to catch to go back to Singapore. So I had a mad rush to take as many photos as possible. But I think I missed out some exhibits though. Sigh.
And now for the non-Singapore ones…
There are random figurines around Legoland when we move from 1 station to another station too…
Oh, I also took 2 rides when I was at Legoland. Hehe.
Of course there are other more exciting rides which I will never take…
And lastly I saw this lovely wild flower (okay, probably it is not really wild) while on the way back to the bus stop for our bus back to Singapore…

I went Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum with Zhe Wei during my Week of Rest since both of us got free admissions as NUS staff (him) and student (me). I didn’t really upload much photos from the trip though since some are a bit not-so-nice for social media. I love those seashells though. Hehe.
Will I go there again? Definitely since it is free for me. Will I pay to go there again? Probably not. It’s a nice place for kids and intrigue them with the wonders of science and nature though. But I’m not a kid, hahaha.

I realised that I didn’t blog about my new Beoplay H3 ANC. Well, I got it from TANGS and got 6% cash rebate and S$25 gift card since I used my StanChart credit card to pay for it. It costs S$339 after discount but after all the rebates and gift card that I got, it became less than S$300. Well, that means I am less guilty of my purchase? Hahaha.
Anyway, it is an awesome looking earphones with a balanced sound. ANC sucks though but I’m not going to complain much with its superb sound quality. Okay, fine. Actually I am a bit regretting because of the poor ANC. But the next option is Bose QC20 and I am not really keen to get that because I already owned a QC25. Oh well… I am using it as frequently as I can now to make full use of my expensive purchase. Hopefully this is going to be the last expensive purchase that I am going to make in the next few months. I seriously need to save money… Bleh…
So now I am a proud owner of both Beoplay A2 and H3 ANC. I really love the sound quality of my Beoplay A2. It makes me want to stay in my bedroom all day long because of its hifi-like sound quality!
