Phew, I’ve been so swamped with loads of stuff the last couple of weeks, from meet ups with loads of friends (blog post up probably next year), work, marketing for GlamPuss and of course, LAST MINUTE CHRISTMAS SHOPPING!
Added to that, I have LOADS of overdue blog posts lined up for me to write. I don’t know why some bloggers complain that they have nothing to write about when I have like..too much! Hurhur. Anyway, this particular post is SUPER overdue which I had promised like ages ago HERE. Holy crap, that’s like almost 3 weeks ago?!
Okok, enough sidetracking, let’s get on with the blogpost.
**NOTE: It’s going to be LONG and PHOTO INTENSIVE!:
So I have a couple of buddies in my life who I consider to be my best friends, like truly forever. One of them is that idiotic Crystal (from sec school) whom I love to bits, Rachel (from poly) who is the owner of Love For Fabric and the other is Steffi (another sec school friend), who is located in Aussie right now.
Yeah, she has been there for quite awhile – ever since after secondary school actually. Studying of course.
She came back to visit like 3 years ago and crashed at my place for a couple of nights and since then, I haven’t seen her. So imagine how psyched I was when she told me that she would be coming back to Singapore for a couple of days! Initially it was supposed to be over the weekdays, but Crystal couldn’t make it. Luckily she decided to extend her stay so I definitely knew we had to hog her entire Saturday – or whatever we could of it.
Crystal managed to book a room at Teo Heng KTV Studio over at Katong Mall from 12pm – 3pm. Wished it could be longer, but that was all they had as we only booked it on Wednesday.
So a word of advice – always book it WAYYY in advance if you wish to sing longer as it really gets fully booked over the weekends really fast cos it’s real cheap compared to Kbox(;

Because we met at 12pm, we didn’t have lunch so we ordered Tom Yum Instant Noodles and other finger food such as Nachos, etc from Teo Heng. Crystal helped us to buy bubble tea for the rest and herself, and passionfruit ice blended for myself. So it was a super cheap meal! Sorry for the blurry photos!
That’s Steffi eating her noodles with Crystal‘s hand doing the thumbs up sign and the bf at the back selecting songs. Again, blurry, Boo
Epic blurry photo of Crystal singing. Whoo!
Oh and here’s a video of Steffi and I singing The Tide is High by Atomic Kitten. It used to be our FAVORITE song back in Secondary School and I just wanted to sing it together with her again to reminisce about the past.
Anyway, after singing, we wanted to find a place at Katong where we could sit, chat and have an ice cream or a light meal before dinner. I did my homework before that and the choices were:
1. With a Pinch of Salt
3. Ice Cream Gallery
In the end, after checking out all 3 places, we settled for LICK – short for Little Ice Cream Kafe. Cute huh?
So let’s have the rest of the photos do most of the talking:

Overall, LICK is a great place to sit and chill and of course, have really delicious/awesome fresh homemade ice cream. All of us were prefer the traditional flavors like chocolate, vanilla and cookies and cream but they really do have loads of other varieties. Definitely would recommend it for yummy ice cream at Katong!
After all that, we headed to Old Airport Road Food Centre for a FEAST FEATURING awesome Singapore local food! Again, let’s have the awesome food pictures tell the story(: Note that these food are all from the different stalls located there!

So at the end of the day, I gave this to Steffi, a weaved bracelet which I handcrafted and customized for her to make it more unique, special and memorable – like how she is to me. I’ll miss her so much, and I really do hope that she will come back again soon(:
Lol, and I also gave Crystal her belated birthday gift – a pretty Crystal jewelry set. I bought this before I set up GlamPuss, so if I didn’t buy it, I would have handcrafted a little something for her.
Well, I finally have come to the end of this SUPER LONG blog post.
Thanks for reading!
