Food Review: Lime House @ Keong Siak Belt

When Lime House first opened its doors in 2013, they introduced the Caribbean concept of “liming”, which means the art of sharing food, drinks, conversation, and laughter. The restaurant and bar is set in a heritage four-storey shop house in Chinatown’s Keong Siak belt. The owner of Lime House, Chris Morris wanted his customers to view Lime House as an extension of their own homes. This is clearly reflected in the interior and décor of the space, as well as the warm and welcoming staff that instantly made us feel at home! The space gives out laid-back, vacation vibes which complements the home-y taste of the dishes served. After celebrating 5 fantastic years of Limin’, Lime House launched their new Caribbean Tapas and Cocktail menu which features some of their old favourites as well some new delectable selections. One thing is for sure, by the end of the night, we were so stuffed that we could roll out of the door! Lime House prides themselves in their house-made sauces and curries that are all made …

Food Review: Boufe Boutique Café @ Phoenix Park

Known for their uniquely fashioned cakes (notably their unicorn cakes), Boufe Boutique Café is tucked away in a quiet corner of Phoenix Park along Tanglin Road. The café itself maintains the British Colonial exterior of yesteryears. As the location is not as conveniently accessible as some other cafés, it provides a refuge from the rest of bustling Singapore and is generally quiet and cosy. Boufe plays on the ample amount of natural lighting by keeping its interior simple and minimalistic. It definitely makes for prettier pictures for the gram. 😉 Their all-day brunch menu features an array of classic options, as well as some fusion food items. I love that they bake their own bread in-house every day. I ordered their Yuzu Eggs Florentine ($19) which features sauteed baby spinach, Norway smoked salmon, poached eggs, homemade yuzu hollandaise sauce with paprika, and salmon roe on top of their artisan sourdough. It was also served with a side of fresh greens. I was pleasantly surprised by this combination. The hollandaise sauce was amazing, and the overall …

Beauty Review: Kat Von D Tattoo Eyeliner

I had heard many good things about the Kat Von D Tattoo Eyeliner prior to purchasing it. It is after all a cult favourite. But I always had a hard time justifying spending the money on it. However, when I was in the market for a new liquid eyeliner, I decided that now was the time to take that leap of faith to see if it was worth the splurge. First Impression of the Kat Von D Tattoo Eyeliner As with every Kat Von D product, the packaging has intricate gothic-esque details on it and is rather sturdy. The eyeliner casing is just the right size, making it easy-to-grip and apply. The brush has a nice pointy tip so that you could get down to the finest of lines. Super pigmented and opaque. Although it dries quick, it is quite buildable and doesn’t become clumpy. Pros Now I kid you not, but I was absolutely jaw-droppingly impressed with how unsmudgeable the Kat Von D Tattoo Eyeliner was. Most liquid eyeliners that I’ve tried, smudges within …

Beauty Review: Ere Perez Quinoa Water Foundation

Ere Perez is an Australian-owned company that produces natural and healthy beauty products. In the past, I did a first impressions of some of their new products at that time (which you can check out here) and fell in love with the brand! I recently received another package from them, and one of the products is the Ere Perez Quinoa Water Foundation (A$40). It is a new product of theirs and I was eager to test it out on my skin. Will it match my skin tone? Will it come out cake-y on my skin? What will the formula be like? Hmm… So many questions that needed to be answered. To be honest with you, I have never been a fan of using foundation as they are known to contain many different chemicals and nasties. Just the thought of that alone with the additional knowledge that the product will be caked on my face and clogging my pores for hours at a time really deterred me from using foundation. In addition to that, I have …

Lifestyle Review: Nilufer Tea – Bringing Nature into your Cup

If you have been following us for a while, you would know that we enjoy the finer things in life whilst remaining healthy and respectful of the environment. My personal favourite beverage is tea, and I do enjoy unwinding with a good cuppa. So, when we heard of Nilufer Tea, we were excited for the opportunity to work together. Nilufer Tea’s slogan is “Bringing Nature into your cup”, and this is evident as they focus on making quality tea whilst encouraging environmentally friendly practices. They are a social enterprise of sorts as they rely on small, independent farmers throughout Japan for their ingredients; hence, boosting employment opportunities in farming villages while encouraging the demand for sustainable and fair farm practices. Their herbs and flowers remain uncrushed and uncompressed; hence, ensuring that customers get a heightened experience with their blends. Every blend is free from artificial additives, preservatives, and pesticides. It certainly doesn’t hurt that every brew is so Instagram worthy! Each of Nilufer’s Herbal Blends contains different health benefits. The Ginger Rooibos has a spicy …

Review: Singapore’s Luxury Tallship, Royal Albatross

Docked along the waterfront of Sentosa, the Royal Albatross is a unique luxury tall ship that operates like an old-world ship. Batman fanatics may also be thrilled to know that the Royal Albatross was featured in ‘The Dark Knight’ (2008) as Bruce Wayne’s private yacht. The ship is about a 20-minute walk away from VivoCity if you are walking to Resort World Sentosa via the 700m long Sentosa Boardwalk. Our cruise started with apprehension as it started to rain just as we were pulling away from the docks of Sentosa. The crew were scurrying around to ensure that all passengers on board remained safe and dry despite the rain and heavy wind. But thank God that shortly after our voyage began, the rain came to a halt and the clouds began to clear up. The Royal Albatross was the perfect spot for photo ops, especially with the clear skies and kiss of a golden sunset. Shortly after we set sail, we approached the buffet line. The spread consisted salad, cold cuts, a variety of hot …

Food Review: Winestone @Mercure Singapore on Stevens

If you’ve been following us for a while, you would know that we love trying different foods and cuisines. So when we learned of Winestone, we were excited to try out their food as they serve a fair selection of Mediterranean dishes. Since opening its doors on the 22nd of January 2018, it has been an up and coming dining spot for couples and families alike. It is one of the many pods in the Oxley cluster surrounding Mercure and Novotel on Stevens. Winestone is aptly named as the name is derived from two prominent factors when dining at the establishment; they have a wide selection of wines and many of their meals are served on stone boards. Housing Mercure’s morning breakfast during the day, Winestone breaks off into an independent dining concept of its own after noon. We ordered a variety of different dishes to be shared amongst everyone on the table. To start, we were served an assortment of bread, such as their dark rye sour khubz and mini ciabatta bread, set above …
