Wild Honey, Singapore, No place like hOme~

since beginning of the year...
I came across this breaky place - Wild Honey in Singapore on net...
knowing it always long Q daily...
I'm not a morning person, but I love BREAKY...
this place served all-day breakfast.. with wide varieties...

during the visit, I saw a postcard in the restaurant mentioning something about chef of Melbourne etc...
and it tells why I love this place at first sight...
the foods just fit my liking~    :)

I went the one in Scotts Square during my visit in September...
after waiting for 9 mths ! finally ! 


beautiful coffee aroma surrounding the restaurant...
huge range of pastries and dessert near the entrance...
too bad we were just too full to try out the dessert.. 
I believe they taste all good... 








Cafe Cappuccino to begins... 


European... 
eggs Benedict with 2 poached eggs, sauteed mushrooms, Italian prosciutto, and homemade Hollandise Sauce. 


I love benedict.. and it so rare to get it in Penang.. I finished it All-By-Myself ,so cleaned tho I was so fulled !



English...
the usual big breaky...
with scramble eggs, sauteed mushrooms, super soft homemade breads, back bacon, pork sausages, baked beans, potatoes and grilled tomatoes...
I would suggest this to be sharing for 2 ladies... the portion is quite huge for me or my friend to finish alone...


a set to share plus a dessert and 2 cuppa sounds good...


Turkish...
Sizzling pan of spicy Shakshouka (tomato, onion, pepper & chilli) studded with chorizo sausages, crowned with two fried eggs...
I would say not everyone likes the spicy and special flavor of this... it very depends...
it tastes good for me...
dipping the super soft bread into the spicy sauce is just nice... 

************************

the interior is beautiful, cozy and colourful...
another good photo snapping spot... hehe
there are indoor and outdoor sitting places for smokers...





there are 2 branches in Singapore... look out their site for more info...

hallOween 2005 vs 2012


I kinda like Halloween since young...
no idea why... Maybe because I like pumpkin !
pumpkin itself, pumpkin soup, pumpkin toys and everything...
lame reason, I know..  -___-""

since high school, my bff and I always tried to plan for a Halloween Costume Partay, but never succeed...
never get to celebrate this event...

till the year I worked as part-timer in Segafredo..
being appointed to in-charge the deco for the event...
tho I was on off day for exam during that particular whole week...
but deco, event, partay, HALLOWEEN... how to reject ???

with all the helpful colleagues... 
I only needed to manage the exterior... and the interior taken care by others...

till today, we all still kinda proud with what we have done for the outlet on that day~  ^^
as been received alot of compliments that night... 
not to me, but whole outlet !


I intended to build a 'wall paper' for the outlet...
I drafted some buildings on A4 paper... 
bought dozens of Sugar-paper, combined altogether to form a big big slice of 'wall-paper'
drew my drafted drawing on it, cut out and stick up on the wall with the helps of the rest... 
replaced the windows with coloured-lantern-glass papers... 
few 3D graveyard... 



 the witch done with wood board...
big piece, drew, cut, spray and tied up but these 2 gentleman...


we only started to set up the interior and exterior deco the night before...
apparently, we worked overnight, till the next day morning...

when all things are up... we reckon the sky not seems very bluish but with grey clouds instead...
that was about 7am in the morning... 
we so worried with my fragile wall papers...

instantly, we came up this idea to combined the black rubbish collector bags as big as the wall...
and this nice gentleman, our 'manager'... 
helped to hang up covering the Whole Wall...
meanwhile, we keen to keep the wall paper as a surprise too...


it rained so heavily in the noon...
something superstitious happened...
we prayed to the sky for a clear weather during evening before took down the rubbish-bag-protector...
the sky turned so clear for the whole night long...

outlet closed at 2.30am daily...
by the time we left the shop was 3+...
RIGHT AFTER, we locked the doors, got up to car, the next seconds, it RAINed so super heavily without any 'heads up'...
I eye-witnessed everything on the wall 'disappeared' within 10 seconds !!

I just couldn't believe it...

it was really a great memorable night... 
after 7 years, every scene still clearly in my mind...

Climax of the night...
was the flash-mod part...
sudden song played, all the staff / ghost jumped up to the bar and danced crazily !


my fren even crazy till walked around the road and scare the passer by...
below picture showing how she ' stopped ' ppl's car on the main road ! 


acting Statue on the roof of the car by the road !




it was fun... and I missed it...

the year after, I was in Aussie...
being nanny at boss's house, didn't follow housemates to parties...

after backed...
every year, we tried to 'find-some-fun' , but always failed !

2012,
me being appointed as part of committee to organize the Halloween Event for Dell Finance !
it was the very first Halloween partay in Dell... and it's with ZERO budget ! 
woo hoo~
delighted ** winkz ~



there's a costume competition... 
and all committees were required to dress up !
with the date crash of my exam...
I need something last minute, low cost and easy-to-make...
I decided to be black swan !



  1. hand made Black Tutu, with 3-4 metres of tulle ( rm 4.5 per M ) + a rubber headband costs me rm 2.90 ; cut into pieces and tied up to the headband one by one for 3 layers...
  2. DIY feather and rhinestones onto my black corset
  3. DIY black swan ugly crown with Glue Gun - whole crown is made by GLUE, painted black, stick some different sizes rhinestone and black sprinkles


pictures with director and bosses...
I was impressed seriously...
never thought so many would turn up with creative costumes and made up... 








only managed to share some photos... 
thought it was only a short 2hrs in-house event...
but all of us had fun and impressed !!!

since I already spent a night to make my costumes...
abit wasted if I only wear it for 2 hrs...
thus, we decided to attend the Halloween Partay at Traffic on 27th Oct... 


the event was kinda boring...
not many people dress up, guess the most efforts must be our gang !
Glad that all my frens just so into character !
without needing any alcohol, we were making so much fun...
a crazie night after all !






this pic clearly showing how ghost dancing Gangnam !

we even off to Soju for second round at 2am !
with our lame-dress-up, walking in Soju in a line...
we can sense many eyes peeking at us, and snapping photos...

we just don't care and went up stage to DANCE !
imagine a Dynasty Insane Princess, Keong Si, Black Swan (a bird, they called it), Japanese AV, Cat, Black and White Roses...
weird combination dancing on the stage...
wtf !
but it was fun...





the best part was we did not take any alcoholic drinks but we seem like totally drunk to do all the crazie stuff !
it was another memorable Halloween to mark my life-calendar...
