Jingle bells jingle bells Jingle all the way! Oh what fun it is to ride In a one horse open sleigh. ~~~

I am totally soaked in the season of love and giving! Read on to find out what are some of best deals and presents I had hand picked from the Philatelic Store  @GPO, located at Singpost Centre! The Philatelic Store @GPO is operated and owned by Singapore Post.

The store offers both long-time and new stamp collectors a comprehensive range of Singapore and Foreign Stamps, Thematic MyStamp, Souvenirs, and Philatelic Gifts that are available exclusively in store!

Every item in the store marks a special moment in Singapore’s history. ❤

I LOVE these artworks with the stamps and how they are so complementary. The exquisite designs of the collections make them perfect for all occasions- decorations, business gifts or cherished inclusions in every philatelist’s personal collection.

Look at this red posting box behind me! This post box was from the colonial-era and it has been restored back to its former glory.

I love how the shop classifies the festive gift ideas with philately designs ranging from $5 to $10. This would help you to save your time if you are looking for affordable gifts that you can just pick, grab and go!

My picks from this range:

Look at these lovely “Greetings” stamps! Aren’t they very cute! This was only launched in November.

Stamp booklet and stamp sheets from the merlion series are available from $3 onwards. They even have postcards of this theme!

This SingPost Postman and Postwoman Figurines Collection is $28 each, $50 for set of 2

The highlight of my shopping spree is of course the Thematic MyStamp from Changi Mystical Garden with Sanrio Characters. For Sanrio characters lovers, this is definitely something you must not miss!

This stamp folder comes with a lanyard and it is retailing at $21.80.

Can you guess what this is?

It is actually a traditional Biscuits Magnets Set! They remind me of the biscuits I used to eat when I was young. This is something that I can show my kid next time, the kind of biscuits mummy used to eat when I was young. Hehe.. Hopefully these biscuits would still be around!

The next thing that caught my eye at the shop was the Posting Boxes of Singapore Collection. I like how the pouches, cushion cover, tea towel and the tote bags reminds me of the wonderful country we live in and something to be thankful for each day.

Last but not least, I want to thank Brunches Cafe for the lovely food at the event. Brunches cafe is the latest chic vintage themed cafe located along Rangoon Road near Farrer Park MRT. They serve really nice All-day breakfast menu, sandwiches and did I mention WAFFLES and COFFEE? So cafe hoppers, you know where to do next!

Bubble tea can soothe the throat?

Hello there!

Today I am going to share with you my review for this bubble tea brand – Woobbee.

FullSizeRender (1)

Check out my video for the adventures that day!

Once in a while I would crave for sweet drinks and there is nothing more satisfying than finding a drink that not just quenches my thirst but satisfies my taste buds.

I heard about Woobbee from my friends and decided to drop by their outlet at Shaw Tower to try out the different drinks they offer with some of my closest friends.

I really like the idea how all their drinks are made using raw sugar, which is slightly healthier than the processed white sugar.

Their drinks ranges from flavoured teas, milk teas, yakult and yogurt drink, coffee and cocoa drinks to more unconventional drinks like Ginger Latte, Almond Milk Grass Jelly and Citron Honey Aloe.

The first drink that caught my eye when I was there was the Herbal Mint Milk Tea (Pei Pa Kao)! And of course, I ordered that while my friends tried their signature drinks like Fresh Milk Earl Grey, Wintermelon Grassjelly and Fresh Juice Apple Yakult.

I chose the Herbal Mint Milk Tea because I was really curious how the drink would taste like. Moreover, my throat wasn’t feeling too well that day so I was secretly hoping that this drink would ease the discomfort.

And WOW the taste was amazing. Hands down. I’m a person who loves mint, so I was totally won over by that drink!

That drink was really quite legit… it soothed my throat after a few hours.

Can I drink you every day?

For the “first time in forever”, I was pretty early (please don’t judge haha >.<)

Woobbee was a nice and cozy place for me to browse through magazines and chill while waiting for my friends to arrive!

The Garlic with Cheese Toast was the real deal man. My friends and I ordered like 3 or 4 plates of it. I’m serious-confession of a cheese lover.

Best friends know how crazy you are and still choose to be seen with you in public.

Saturday brunch at Level 33

img_3110

Headed down to level 33 for a Saturday brunch. I was really excited how the food would taste and the awesome view that awaits!

Level 33 is famous for their craft brew and their Wheat Beer are brewed based on heritage recipes applying state-of-the-art technology by SALM & Co GmbH, one of Europe’s oldest manufacturer of breweries. They are located at level 33 of the Marina Bay Financial Centre (MBFC) Tower 1, the heart of the business district.

When I wanted to take the lift up to the restaurant, I realize that once you press the button to go to level 33 from the outside, you don’t have to press it again inside the lift. There is practically no buttons inside the lift!

Freshly brewed beer.

Once you reach the restaurant, you will be greeted with their friendly waiter/waitress and the next thing you would see is their gigantic copper brew house kettles.

Foie gras, for all the fois gras lovers.

img_3131We had a buffet spread to choose from.

The buffet table was too long to capture with my camera 🙂 but I really love their sweet treats display.

We ordered the wheat beer to try. Tasted really smooth.

Satisfied faces.

img_3122

Smoked salmon! My favourite.

We went out for a short walk to see the views before desert time.

The view outside was pretty breath taking. You can overlook the different financial institutions, the Singapore Flyer (Ferris wheel ), the esplanade, The Float (Marina Bay floating platform), the Marina Bay Sand (MBS) and the Marina Bay Sand hotel. Pretty sure the night view would be quite awesome as well when they are lighted up.

You can choose to sit at the high chairs outside as well for the views.

How could we resist some sweet treats!

Calories and sugar overload, but its worth it! 🙂

Nom Nom… Munch Munch…

The price for this buffet is worth it for its food, brewery and the amazing views! Great location for birthday or anniversary celebrations.

Share with me your views about this place and their food!

Till next time,

Borough Market In London

Borough Market In London

File_000Strolling down the streets of the borough market!

The borough market in London was nothing short of amazing. I heard from friends that they had authentic Fish and Chips and it tastes different from what we could get in Singapore.

My friends and I took the metro and alighted at the London Bridge Underground Station. The borough market is open from 10am to 5pm everyday except on Sundays and most shops are usually open from Wednesdays to Saturdays! The market sells a wide variety of food ranging from fish, meat, vegetables to cheese and pastries. They also sell freshly made food from all over the world! The market tends to be really busy during office hours so do come down earlier if you would like to avoid the crowd.

File_007Spot the massive ostrich eggs! 

File_002First time seeing such a humongous cheese wheel!

File_001 (1)Nothing like hot guys on a hot day 😀 Just kidding! 

File_002 (1)The men i need in my life. Gingerbread men.

File_000 (1)It almost look like it’s twerking

After a longggggg wait, my craving was finally satisfied! The fish was different indeed! I had the beer battered Fish and Chips and it tasted really awesome. The golden brown batter coating was really crispy, but at the same time it wasnt too heavy on the stomach. Inside this delightful shell, the fish was firm and had a certain bite to it, which was different from other softer fish like the Dory which tends to fall apart easily even when fried. Best of all, there wasn’t any fishy taste.

File_001And thats how true love looks like.

File_000 (2)Fresh from the ocean!!!! I think. 

There is definitely so much more food that I could have tried and I wish we had more time (and stomach space) to explore this food market.

Let me know in the comments below if there is any other food that you would like me to try the next time I visit the Borough Market!

With Love,

Veron
