Fifty Shades of GREY

Grey, Grey, Grey...

it's the word and topic keep repeating in my daily routine since July...
I've finally finished all 3 books last night...
being my ' tight ' schedule, I hardly get time to read my novel/ fictions like last time...
but these books certainly occupied part of my functional brain... hahaha

somewhere in July...
Eve spotted this book in a random store during her SG trip...
she wondered why is it so best-selling? bought the first book and get addicted...

shared with us during our working hrs, made me so curious about it...
as she told me this book is mostly about SM ! and it's a top seller...
i'm like... errrrr....
should give it a go, perhaps ?

The series has sold 40 million copies worldwide, with book rights having been sold in 37 countries, and set the record as the fastest-selling paperback of all time, surpassing the Harry Potter series.

so unbelievable huh?
I don't understand till I read it !

turned out, these books are really famous, whenever I shared photos on Insta or fb, frens feedback saying they're reading too... frens from Aussie, frens from sg... I was like... wow... ok ~ 

I'd carried these books everywhere to my dinners, drinks, coffees outing with frens...
and of course, been receiving blames from them.. but who cares...
to my surprise that, some of my GUY frens, are actually reading this book, too ! and telling me, they love it !
so, proven, it's not a mommy book...
but guys around me called it a Semi-porn / Porn-book instead...
and i'm more than agree with it ! hahaha

apart from the RICH-sex-stories, the story lines simply overwhelming, fantastic, touching and craving...

it speaks out many girls' dreams...
tho it sounds like a fairy tales, yet it pulls you back to the reality and faces the cruel parts most of the time...
the sweet and bittersweet, happy and pain...
imagine I can lie down on my bed with a smile on my face, envy how lucky Ana is, dreaming I could be part of the stories, and Jump up from my bed the next nanosecond... and feeling nervous, pain, sad...
this book could really bring you around...
touchy enough... that explains why it could hit 40 mils WW, or more for now... 

and yes, I'm just way too much indulged in it... 
in Grey...

I will always pick my fav page of each book and snapped a pic after I finished each...

Book 1



Book 2



Book 3




rumours saying they're getting Mattew Boomer to film Christian Grey in Movie !!!!!
Eve and I are like ! wow !!~~~~~~~!!!!!!!
full of excitement, looking at Matt is just like looking at Grey in person...
since we gotten the news, whenever watching Matt in White Collar, we simply 'treat' him as Mr Grey...
no drama...
whenever reading Fifty Shades, I pictured Mr Grey with Matt's Face   *blush*


see it's really always at the top list of Weekly Bestseller !

Ten reasons Fifty Shades of Grey has shackled readers

*********** 

Fifty Shades series has simply taken the place of Cecelia Ahern's in my own-preference...
perhaps it allowed 'imagination' and most girls craved for LOVE, life like this... at least I do...
my fren's bf have to keep 'remind' her it's just a fiction...
boys hate to lose to a fiction man...
sigh... 
      i'm STILL indulging in Grey's mood, I shall re-read the 3 books again after the CPA...
laters, xoxo...

Light House Coffee

Light House Coffee,
It was a cafe I spotted since 1 year+ backed...
been in the want-try-list, as usual no time to make it...

till these few months, it getting more and more 'popular' 
and one Sunday afternoon, my buddy cio me go for good Coffee ! 
finally !!! 

the business is good, non-stop customers coming in...
tables always full, since the place ain't really big...


whole cafe filled with beautiful coffee aroma...
great smell that I would die for...

brewed coffee beans from Brazil...


Buddy had Iced Caramel Coffee while I'm having Cafe Affogato...


Cafe Affogato
A shot of espresso topped with scoop of Vanilla ice cream...
when the ice cream melted, it will sweeten the bitter strong coffee... and hot drink becomes cold drinks instantly... 

Ice cream lover + coffee addict like me = Affogato always a good choice.. 
hehehe...

of cuz I tasted few sip of espresso first before I stir around the ice cream...
Brazil coffee is way bitter than others coffee for me...
I let buddy tried a sip, he said it caused him insomnia till 4am that night... I wonder.... 

Big Breaky... serving all day... 
nothing special... just a normal American Style Big Breaky...


It's some kind of Chocolate Cake but I couldn't recall what's name...
the taste is okay, won't be too sweet...
but a bit too dry for my liking...
would it caused by putting in the fridge for too long thus no longer moist or it just meant to be ?
overall, is okay... (I'm choosy on cakes)


this Japanese baby is so cute...
sitting at the table next to me...
she (I supposed) is so adorable and friendly...
keeps smiling and waiving to everyone in the cafe...
I think I did 'give 5' or 'shake hand' with her...
so wanted to carry her home... hehehe....

Kwong Sang House, Leith Street

last Saturday, after our memorable sharing moments at Mews Cafe
we con't our dinner session at Kwong Sang House which is just walking distance from Muntri Street...

another Heritage Cafe shared the same owners of Behind 50...
located at Leith Street...



there are tables on top floor as well, 
I was too lazy to climb up the stairs, thus no overview photo of the top floor dining room... 


a lot of heritage, antique, childhood stuff around the cafe...


they sell cake too..
but from the appearance, I don't think those cake are some special-homemade...
thus, we did not order to try....    :P
*self-assumption*

Citrus Juice
Hot Ginger and Honey
I supposed it's the Korean Ginger Honey Tea that selling in mall

Cafe Cappuccino
my personal thought, I found the foods in Behind 50 are so so...
thus, we did not put high expectation to the foods here...
HOWEVER, we love the foods here...
especially the Pizza, highly recommended seriously...
the thin crust is crunchy, cheesy enough but not too much with nice tomato based overall just gained a thumbs-up from us...

Chicken Bacon Pizza with Cheese, Rm 16.90


see her happee face, photo tells...   :)


Carbonara with Chicken Ham and Mushroom...
not overly creamy but just nice...   :)

Dory Fish Fillet with Butter Cream and Blueberry Sauce... 
it served with Homemade Mashed Potatoes and steamed Veggie...
we love the mashed potatoes...  :)



Chicken Thigh with Blueberry and Peach Sauce
the chicken thigh is well cooked and tender...
the blueberry sauce is slightly too sweet for our liking...
it doesn't taste as bad just maybe we hardly taste this sweet and savoury combination... 
overall, still okay  :)



before aparting....
group pic as usual... 
Wah has left us for family dinner... we did not leave her out~

Woody in Georgetown

2 weeks backed, met up with my 'buddy' for dinner at this considered-quite-new-cafe around the Heritage area...
located between Kuan Yim Temple and Nasi Beratur...

when heard of Woody, 1st thing comes to my mind of course is the famous character from Toy Story... 
hehe...
however, it's nothing to do with him...
apparently, the furniture and deco in this cafe mostly are in woods...
hence, WOODY




I kinda likes their creativity of their handmade Wood Tables and Chair...
the chair can actually be kept under the table...
they're selling them, but I'm not sure with the price...
something bad is, the wood chair definitely not a good idea to sit long... especially for someone who has meatless-butt like me... *ashamed*
a tip that must remember to be extra careful.. as the splinters are kinda obvious, careless a bit might get hurt...


love the idea of this kor cha bi biscuits in tin...
some times ago, me and an old fren said before, we surely gonna have it in our future-cafe... too bad... and too late to let others do it first... 



another scopio-buddy... doing Gong Bin thingy -- jumps into my photo ! 


little corner at the staircase...
various colourful markers allowing customers to sign or leave a note on the wall  :)


we went upstairs for Air-Cond...



a lot of wood stuff / furniture and etc selling 


there are a living room with TV and DVDs, perhaps its for events / karaoke / I dunno...


kor-cha-bi biscuits served once we're seated...
if not mistaken, it's free flow thru out the dine in...


not much on the foods varieties...
but knowing they do have special / BBQ during weekend...
shall check out more from the staff... 



I have the Dragon Fruits Special written on the board at the entrance of Woody...
I like it.. since i'm a fans of Red dragon fruits...
I supposed I did taste a bit of milk... kind of blended drinks with rich of fruits plus little milk... 
quite fulfilling...


House Brew Coffee - Iced...

Fresh Orange, yum~


in fact, we're slightly disappointed with the foods...
as simple as an Omelette, I found it tasteless... it's hard to believe....
its just far from my liking... 
perhaps they forgot to add in pinch of salt and pepper, and definitely they did not use butter on that day... 

Omelette with Hams and tomatoes

Omelette with Mushroom and Tomatoes



Roti Prata served with Curry Chicken
we suspect the Roti Prata dough not preparing by themselves, but it's some ready-made... 
can't say not nice,  but just normal...



Popcorn Chicken
I supposed they marinated it with lemongrass as I taste it... not too bad...  :)
