Selling my Minimo-X Digi Lomo Camera!

Just as the title suggests, i've decided to sell my Minimo-x digital lomo camera which i got about 1 month ago. Condition is perfect and it comes with a 4GB memory card. As much as i always wanted it, i realised i don't really have the time to play with it. I think i used it 2 times ever since i got it. Zzz

Some photos of how it looks like. Basically 3.2 Mega pixel. There's an LCD screen behind. Charge through USB, there's even double exposure (which i haven't figure out how to use that function -.-)

Sample photos which i found online. But honestly, it isn't that vibrant i think.

Selling for $70. Will throw in FREE Registered mail after confirmation and payment or self collect at Pasir Ris! Interested do email me at or drop me a comment below with your email and i will get back to you shortly (:

Strictly Pancakes!

If you haven't notice, i'm always in search for places that serve good food or have good ambience thus the amount of food posts on this blog! One day i will just sit down infront my blog and start categorizing them into different labels. Here's another place that i want to share with you guys!

STRICTLY PANCAKE! 44A Prinsep Street. Nearest MRT station: Dhoby Ghaut.

I have heard so much about this place from friends, on food blogs so i randomly tweeted on my birthday if anyone was interested to drop by Strictly Pancake to try out some of their creations!

Above we have Clarence and Calvin, busy checking into their Foursquare while waiting, LOL

Flipping the menu a few times, we were seriously spoilt for choice! Everything sounds good.

A photo of us while waiting for our pancakes!

Clarence's Pancake - Banana Scotched. ($11)

Caramelised bananas sizzled in a pan with a dash of rum drizzled over a
medium stack, served with a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Calvin's Pancake - Medium stack with Sauteed Mushroom and Chicken Chipolata!

If you simply can't make up your mind, why not create your own
combination? 3 steps, choose your stack, your butter and your sides.

My Pancakes - Benedict the Thief. ($14)

Two poached eggs atop turkey ham and two extra thick pancakes finished
with hollandaise sauce and asparagus, oozing with stolen havenly perfection!

Happy us with our Pancakes!

By the time you read this post, i would have already visited Strictly Pancakes twice! I would say Strictly Pancake is a good place to hang out with friends and chill for desserts, actually even for main course. If you think the Pancakes will not make you full, you are wrong. I actually felt quite full having 2 thick pancakes with ham and 2 eggs! I feel that it's abit pricey for Pancakes though...

P.s: This is not a sponsored food review. Just my 2 cents (:

#22nd Birthday at Mind Cafe!

Never really intended to celebrate my 22nd birthday. Still remember last year 21st was held at Mcdonalds, it was quite a fun night whereby everyone had to wear that silly Mcdonalds hat and play games like "Passing the rubber band", "Charades", eat Happy meals etc. This year, all i wanted was a thunderbolt shaped cake and a simple dinner with the usual peeps (which didn't happen, LOLOLOLOL)

I didn't want to celebrate it at first because i felt that 22nd wasn't that significant and did you realised that after you turn 21, most likely you will be planning for your own birthday instead? Yes?

Anyway, this year's 22nd was last minute-ly planned. I had about a week to research and finally settled on The Mind Cafe. Just a simple dinner and board games session for 8, ending it with a cake!

Decided on the Prinsep street outlet! Yes, along the same street as Strictly Pancake!

We have Li mei, Yingzi, Joyce, Mel, Jing Long, Josh and Jiaqi! Lucky 7

I did abit of research and we'll be going for the Mega meal with meal course and 3 hours of games!

They have a a whole range of board games for you to choose from. I think we have not heard about 80% of them. But there are people who will explain the rules of the games to you patiently...

After ordering our food, that's when the real "game" begins. They told me, "You know how Running man works? There are 3 running balls hidden in this cafe and you have to complete the mission. That's your birthday mission." That's when i realised, they came much earlier just to plant the "balls"!!! I was seriously damn surprised. I was like, "You guys seriously came earlier?!"

I have no idea why and how but i managed to just walk to the balls unknowingly. LOL

Task #1: Call a person on your contact list to make him/her say, "You sound weird today"

First person i thought of was BFF Nurul, and we started chatting and i randomly said i wanted to bring hoodie to Phuket just in case it will be cold (We were flying off to Phuket within the next few days and Phuket is DAMN HOT AND SUNNY) and managed to make her say that i sound weird (:

Task #2: Take a photo with a girl that you think is the prettiest in the shop.

I didn't really take a look at all the girls at the cafe so i just randomly went to the next table and told this girl, "It's my birthday today and i'm supposed to take a photo with the prettiest girl here, can you take a photo with me?" Heng, she take with me. I gave her some sweets lehhh, LOL

Task #3: Find 3 miniature figurines in the shop.

I think this is the hardest because i have NO idea what kind of figurines i'm supposed to look for. I even tried asking the waitress if this figurines belong to the shop (which they themselves have no idea also -.-) I took like the longest time and finally found the 3 figurines. Super random, Phew.

Every "ball" contain sweets and the next mission. They wrote their wishes on the ball too

By the time we finish the Running ball game, the food are all here! YAYYYYYY

In the meantime, we started playing board games! First up was Jenga!

This special edition Jenga is the Truth or Dare version. Red for dare, black for truth (:


Next up, we have this _______ (I have no idea what this game is called.)

I to take risks, resulting in lots and lots of monkeys. Zzz

First time playing Snorta, which i think is the highlight board game of the day!

Lazy to explain the game but in a nutshell, we have to call out the sound of the animal of each other whenever the same cards appear. Memory game! So it's damn funny when everyone start going QUACK QUACK, or MEOW MEOW or OINK OINK, damn noisy but fun! Took videos but lazy to edit, LOL

No thunderbolt shaped cake, but there's my favourite tiramisu from Bakerzin!

It's damn awkward when you buy a birthday cake for yourself. I went to the Tampines outlet to reserve the cake at the Paragon outlet and the manager ask me to write the message that i want on the cake, so i wrote "Happy Birthday" so she asked, "No name?" In my mind i was thinking, if i wrote "Happy Birthday Andy" she will know i'm buying the cake for myself. #theawkwardmomentwhen

Group photo with everyone before cutting the cake!

Just nice 8 people so i can divide the rectangle cake equally. Caught on camera :|

8 pieces of delicious tiramisu cake

Just wanna say thanks for the presents! Love it!

One last group photo before leaving the cafe! I brought my tripod along thus this photo! (:

Used up one pack of coloured instax films to take individual shots (and 3 group shots) with everyone! By the way, do you know that they discontinued coloured instax film already? It's almost impossible to find it anymore. The rest are all the remaining stocks in the market. I only got 1 pack left :(

Had a fun night that day and i guess the money to plan this event is worth it afterall since i managed to gather everyone to have eat and have fun together! Whether i will celebrate my 23rd, we will leave it to next year to decide again, LOL

Went to Hong Kong recently and was contemplating on getting a CAPSULE CLAW MACHINE back to Singapore. I remember seeing it once in Singapore (can't remember when) and i badly want it. Not to really play with it but to display it because how often do we get to see something like this?

After bargaining with the shop keeper and considering for a long time, i decided to get it in the end. But the next problem is, how to bring it back to Singapore? I can't possibly check it in because if they throw it around, the plastic will definitely break... Trust me, the fragile tag DOESN'T work.

I hand carried it on the plane back to Singapore!

Quite amazed by how it works (exactly like those in the arcade!) and i'm gonna start collecting capsules and cute little figurines such as the tofu and display this machine in my room!

Virgin Prawning experience!

Prawning seem to be like almost everyone's favourite hobby now. I read it on some blogs, i've heard friends asking each other if they wanna go prawning together late at night etc. It's like, "Nothing to do ah? Go prawning lor. Can waste time, and got prawn to eat somemore" So finally IT'S MY TURN.

Decided to head over to the one at Bishan, recommended by Jiaqi.

1 hour $15. 2 hours $25. 3 hours $30. Anyone would go for the 3 hrs obviously. 1 hour catch what?

Gave us this disgusting bait. Honestly i have no idea what it is. Liver? Meat?

The hook is REALLY sharp. While hooking the bait, i accidentally pierce it into my finger. #FML

Josh's friends came to join us about 20 mins later and once they put their rod into the pool...

While we caught nothing for the past 20 mins!!! Why like this one?!

Still no hope. No movement for 20 mins... So i decided to...

Ordered prata and wait for the prawn to auto hook onto the bait. LOLOLOLOL


Ok, this is the actual catch. The previous photo was photoshop-ed -____-

Jing long's first catch. If never look at the photo properly, might not even spot the prawn lor, LOL

While the guy tries their best to catch, the girl just have to wait to pose for the photo! AHAHAHA

Ok, finally a decent size prawn! 3 cheers for Josh! I just realised our tee is somewhat similar!

Amazed by my camera's macro function.


After around 2 hours plus, this is the amount of prawns that we caught. Josh commented that this is so far his worst catch throughout his "prawning days" Why we no beginner luck one?!

Now here comes the drama. Jing long wanted to see how many prawns we caught in total so he lifted up the net basket out of the water to see see but he DID NOT hook it back properly. As a result, the whole basket disappeared into the water! AHAHHAHAHAHA

Then we tried to "fish" the net out from the water! After several attempts, we finally managed to retrieve the basket but guess what? There were only 2 prawns left. Why didn't the 2 prawns escape? One died and the other was almost dying. The rest happily swam away... #FOL tyvm.


Josh friend's catch! Look at all the HUGE prawns. We only contributed 2 dead ones, LOL

Now's the part that none of us have any idea what to do with the prawns.
(Thank god for josh and his friends!)

So what we are supposed to do is to wash the prawn, put the satay stick in and add some salt.

I helped to pose for photos while the rest do the job. Don't judge me!

All ready to be barbecued!!! Can't believe we have to poke the satay stick through them ALIVE.

I like it when the prawns turn orange. The colour like very nice, LOL


See what i meant by the colour? The orange colour very nice right!\

Well, i would say my first prawning experience was quite "enriching" I realised a lot of patience and concentration is needed (which i obviously don't have -.-) but still! I will still go prawning with the right company (i think no one will want to go prawning with me after reading this post, LOL) I think prawning at night with a bunch of good friends would be fun!
