Inspiring Quote from "The Spectacular Now"

Dear Freaders*,

I want to share this beautiful and inspiring quote from "The Spectacular Now" movie (2013). This film is based on the novel by Tim Tharp.

This quote really resonated with me (in a way..):

"Compared to other kids, I haven't had that many hardships. Not really. Well, shit's happened. Stuff's happened. Sure. But stuff always happens, right? But the real challenge of my life, the real hardship, is me. It's always been me. As long as I can remember I've never not been afraid. Afraid of failure, of letting people down, hurting people, getting hurt... I thought that if I keep my guard up, focused on other things, other people.. if I couldn't even feel it, then no harm would come to me. I screwed up. Not only did I shut out the pain, I shut out everything. The good and the bad. Until there was nothing. It's fine to just live in the now, but the best part about now, is there's another one tomorrow. And I'm gonna start making them count."

Hope you guys like it. Cheers.

Dear Freaders*,

Do check up this advertisement at Dhoby Ghaut MRT Station (the walkway between NEL and NSL).

I had to take a video so that you can view the interactive display. ^^

For your viewing pleasure:


Cool, eh? :)))

The company chooses to buy media space in the trains as well to extend its reach. (But the ad is static, of cos)

I wonder what other media platforms are being utilised. I will certainly be on the look-out.

Pls feel free to contribute your comments, if you have any. :)

Cafe Review on Rokeby

Dear Freaders*,

On a hot Sunday morning, I decide to visit Rokeby since Australian cafes is one of my heartthrobs.
I just love their casual setting and approachable ambience. :)

Rokeby is nestled in the neighbourhood of Jalan Riang (about 15 minutes walk from Serangoon MRT station).

Observation - Even their signboard is made of wood. I love wood (with the right colour and finishing) because it just gives me a warm, cosy and soothing poke in my heart. Aww ^^)

Look at the amicable and lovable staff smiling at my camera. :)

In love with their furniture & decor -
Lights, shelves, tables, chairs, cute beer bottles, coffee cups, signages

"There Will Be No Working During Drinking Hours" -
Makes SO MUCH sense in the hustle and bustle of city life

Magazines of various genres to entertain the guests ^^

Aussie 2-Way Waffles (Review: 4/5) 
Your tongue (and mind) will thank you for the bursts of flavours. This is pure indulgence!
Savoury waffles with sauteed granny smith apples and orange zest syrup on the side (infused with some bourbon & maple syrup I believe) and a perfectly cooked sausage.
For me, these soft, fluffy waffles (with a slightly crispy outlayer) are a true WINNER! 
The crunchy onions and smoky bacon are the surprise elements
in this delectable treat that gives you the perfect mouthfeel!
The infused savoury cheese flavour will also swim around in your mouth.
(I wish they can add a small block of butter in this dish - it will give it a slightly
oily and buttery coat on your tongue)

Eggs Blackstone (Review: 5/5) -
Smoky streaky bacons, perfectly poached eggs, tomato, wild rocket, creamy hollandaise sauce on a soft brioche toast.
This is this best brioche toast that I have ever eaten!

Flat White (2.5/5) & Long Black -
Notable acidic note, creamy texture, goes perfectly well with the crunchy almond biscuit.
The coffee aroma starts to stir up in my mouth after
 a couple of sips.

Home-made Tiramisu with Bailey's Irish Cream (Review: 4/5) -
Super soft, creamy, wet and a moderate amount of Bailey's makes this Tiramisu a memorable one.

And, don't forget to leave your feedback on Rokeby's webpage to enjoy a complimentary
artisan coffee! :))

I would definitely recommend this cafe to anyone who loves Australian cafe or an unforgettable Brunch experience. ^^

Strive on, Freaders ^ ^

Dear Freaders*,

I just wrote something.. :)

"The path you're walking is now shifting,
The sights you're seeing is now blurring,
As the sun above is slowly setting,
The darkness is rapidly creeping.

I know you wanna cry & say bye,
When life leaves you high & dry,
But hold on & look to the sky,
Everything's gonna be alright."

What I am trying to say is be strong, stay true and be happy always. Look at all challenges in life as opportunities. Strive on.  ^^
