Living the life of a Tai Tai

Hahahah hey there, 

guess the title says it all.

This post is gonna be about:
My manicure & pedicure sesh at The Professionails
Costa Coffee
Dean and Deluca
Saveur 
& some random rants.


The Professionails

Started my day with an appointment with The Professionails;

bought a Groupon voucher for two sesssions of Classic Mani and Pedi which includes a foot scrub!

So this is my second session with them!


Picture

My nails were so fugly before the manicure, god.

Picture

I really love the interior of the shop; furry purple carpet and that pretty wallpaper. // While she works on my feet.

Picture

Just a random selfie to kill the boredom

Picture

Check out their wide display of nail polishes!

Picture

I had a really hard time choosing, (not because I’m an indecisive girl but well that may be part of the reason). // In the end, I chose a deep glossy purple for my toes and the silver foil colour for my fingernails!
After an hour;
VOILA!

(Btw, I topped up $2 for fast dry and it really helps. So do ask your manicurist if they have these fast dry drops if you’re doing a classic manicure like me!)


Picture

I totally love this colour because it looks like foil!
Once you start on manicures, you just can’t stop?
Cause pretty nails would be another reason for your smile.

Check out The Professionails at Midpoint Orchard (:


After I did my nails, 
I WAS STARVING. 

My appt was at 12.30 and it ended at 1.30ish.
I only had breakfast so my stomach was so empty.
I didn’t know what to eat so I decided to check out Costa Coffee for a bite.

Found this uh-mazing plate of yumminess


Picture

Ham, mushroom and cheese BAP; it’s like crispy and the cheese melts in your mouth and I really like mushrooms and it goes really well with the ham. *Spazz*
You’re prolly going like,
oh-em-gee girl, cheese? So fattening

Okay yeah I know, but it tastes good so stop it already hahahaha.

ORDER THIS WHEN YOU GO TO COSTA COFFEE THE NEXT TIME, I SWEAR YOU WON’T REGRET.

// Side story: As I was walking towards Costa Coffee, this guy came up to me and talked to me. 
He asked for my number and I nicely rejected him and his offer of friendship.
This is the second time that a guy has come up to me at 313 Somerset to ask for my number;
(Not trying to boast)
but has it now become a new girls’ hunting spot?

But yeah so after he got a “No” from me, 
he lingered on and tried to “prey” on another girl.
Although I don’t know if he was eventually successful but 
One, you can’t blame a man for trying; 
two, maybe he needs a date for Valentines
three, he desperately needs to satisfy some urges
four, wants to relieve some boredom.

But in any case, I don’t wish to find out which reason. (maybe all? HAHA)


No fate with A&F

After I finished up my food, 
I dropped by A&F.
I’ve went for an interview to work there previously and they said my hair’s too red so I’d need to reshoot my photo when it looks more natural.
I decided to go back and try again. 
But they still find it too red. 

I’m so reluctant to dye it dark again because I really love the current colour
(as seen below).

So I guess I’m gonna give up the job till sometime in future?

Dean and Deluca

Met up with my babe Kim and we went to grab coffee!

Originally, she wanted to check out Black Coffee Dessert Bar at Triple One Somerset
BUT IT’S CLOSED DOWN
AND THEIR WEBSITE IS NOT UPDATED.

SO I REPEAT, BLACK COFFEE DESSERT BAR IS NO LONGER AT TRIPLE ONE SOMERSET.

We were kinda disappointed, so we searched for an alternative and settled for Dean and Deluca.
Haven’t tried Dean and Deluca before so I was pretty excited.


Picture

Featuring the Marble Latte; has white chocolate and milk chocolate in it, with a shot of coffee! Really good.

Picture

We also tried an Earl Grey Blueberry Muffin which wasn’t too sweet (good for the older generations or those who don’t have a sweet tooth?) and Kim got a cup of Green Tea Latte, which is milkier and has more green tea powder than the Starbucks version.

Picture

The purpose of this shot was to show off my nails, heheh. // Pardon the awkward hand handling of the cup.

We talked a lot, 
sharing bits of information about ourselves, 
voiced opinions and talked about love & relationships. 

We also shopped around abit but well, didn’t end up buying anything.

SECOND FOOD DISAPPOINTMENT OF THE DAY: 
Wanted to try out The Sushi Bar at FEP but the queue was so long!!

Thank god Saveur came to the rescue!

Saveur has been rather raved, because it serves good and cheap French food!


Picture

Love the cute fashionable duck on their menu // Here’s a pick up line; “What’s on the menu today? Me-n-u”

Picture

Kim got the Pasta appetiser ($4.90) and I order the Duck Confit ($12.90)
I really like the dish because the duck skin is crispy but the meat is tender and just right.
Love the mushrooms and the mash potato;
the oranges also added and interesting twist to the taste of the dish,

We ended the meal with Earl Grey Creme Brulee;
NOTE THAT FLAVOURS VARY SO YOU’VE GOTTA CHECK THE FLAVOUR OF THE DAY WITH THE STAFF!


Picture

It may not seem much here, but I swear it’s damn good. The taste of the Earl Grey mixed with the sweet sugar top and the sourness of the raspberries; I think I went to heaven and back a few times.

Picture

My pretty darling, thank you for the day! I don’t have many girlfriends cause I don’t always click well with them, but I think we hit off just fine. Can’t wait to see you again!

Gosh I’m so tired rn. 

Last night I had a really bad dream;
of some monsters and that I was trapped in this hotel and running in circles. 

Maybe I was too stressed dealing with my friends’ relationship dramas.
Everyone’s so unhappy yknow?
But I’m thankful that I have other friends whom I can lean on and unload to. 
Without them, I think I’d have crumbled. 

Some reminders I got yesterday: 

1) LIVE EVERYDAY LIKE IT’S YOUR LAST; LIVE YOUR LIFE TO THE FULLEST.
Honestly, we don’t know if there’s an afterlife. 
What if this is your one and only life?
Okay, even if you believe in an afterlife, there’s no harm seizing the day now right?

I say, chase your passions, 
do what makes you happy yknow?
Don’t live life with regrets. 
Live for yourself and not for anyone else. 
Which brings me to my next point,

2) LEARN TO IGNORE OTHER’S OPINIONS OF YOU
Let’s face it, 
people are always gonna talk and comment about you.
It’s their tongue and we can’t stop them.
But we can control and deal with whatever they say. 
Don’t get affected and you win. 
It’s not easy, I know. 
But try. 
I think you’d be a lot happier living life like that(:

Here’s me signing off with my classic smile, xoxo!
