Freshman's Calm Lite

Recently my colleagues and me fell in love with this fruit salad sold by Freshman at Century Square. The fruit salad is so nice that we nearly eat everday XD It has all these inside:

  • Apple
  • Purple dragon fruit
  • Grapes
  • Honeydew
  • Dried cranberries
  • Raisins
  • Walnut (only 1 pc)
  • Almonds
  • Sunflower seeds
  • Melon seeds
  • Crushed peanuts
  • The fruit salad also comes with different kinds of dressing you can choose from, our favorite is definitely the roasted sesame sauce. The other sauce includes sour cream, spicy sauce & wasabi sauce. I am the only one who is willing to try whatever sauce they give. My boss and colleagues only want sesame sauce and the other one is sour cream. Every time we go, we will buy 6 to more than 10. Haha, other than ownself eat, we also treat other colleagues from other department. Some of them say the fruit salad is nice but they threw away the sauce when I ask them on how's the fruit. My boss & colleagues actually ask for more sauce sia... So I learn something, do not give them any sauce next time. XD However, the sad news is Century Square will be undergoing big renovation soon, so Freshman will be closing down around next week and will not be able to enjoy this anymore. T_T

    National Day 2017

    Nope, no outings, no programs. Other than very happy that it is a holiday, I can't recall when was the last time I get excited and sit in front of the TV watching NDP. Hey, I am not excited but this does not mean that i don't love my country ok? I still love Singapore as much as I love myself and my handicrafts. I just recalled that the last time I got excited over NDP was when all my siblings are not married and all staying under one roof. When all of us gathered in the living room watching NDP, joke and play around. Those were the days when NDP is such a happy and wonderful gathering for all of us. When one by one got married and move out, I don't get excited over NDP anymore. I just pick up my handicraft and started working on it while watching dramas or movies on my iPad. What about you?

    SINGtastic Fiar

    I saw this banner at Tampines Mall when I went to buy lunch on Thursday.I told myself that I must definitely go and take a look just for the colourful drinks! SINGtastic was organized by i-Weekly & Tampines Mall, and therefore the first thing I did was to queue up and buy a goodie bag XD The goodie bag cost $10 and it has a lot of goodies in it! A small bottle of oil, chicken broth, bread, Spartan T-shirt, magazines, toothpaste etc.
    This is what I actually came for, the one featured on the banner. The Talad Drink - really colourful and interesting mixture of colours & taste. I think it's a mixture of syrup drinks? Worth trying and definitely nice to take pictures with.
    Colourful don't only belongs to The Talad Drink, but also The Juicy Way. These 2 colourful drinks are very different, The Juicy Way contains more fruit juice and the best part is it's not too sweet. I simply love the taste of Banana + Green Thai Milk Tea when I don't even love Milk Tea at all, hahaha!
    Ninety Teais another interesting drink. These are cold brew infused tea and because it is their birthday as well, they are giving out free handlettered card for whoever that buy their drink. And yes, I am perfectly imperfect and therefore I choose this card.

    Like I said I went to SINGtastic Fair because of the colourful drinks that attracted my eyes, and I really bought the drinks from different drink stall. XD Of course there are more things than drinks. There is a stall that sell old school tibits & games, a stall selling mini cupcakes, a stall selling necklaces/earrings, a stall selling Irvins Salted Egg Chips and a stall selling Curry Bomb. Go and take a walk down memory lane if you are free this weekend.

    DIY Logitech Keyboard Skin

    I had this Logitech FabricSkin Keyboard Folio i5 for my ipad air since 2 or 3 years ago, can't really recall. The casing turns quite ugly as time pass, like a lot of small holes on it and layer of skin starts to tear at the corner. I love this keyboard for the following reasons:
  • One full charge last me up to 3 months
  • The keyboard wakes up only when the iPad lies on the keyboard magnetic area
  • The keyboard always work when it wakes up
  • Keyboard has no holes, no need to worry about things trapping in between keys
  • The keyboard is liquid repellant
  • There's also a few things that I do not like about this keyboard:

  • In order to control volume, I have to hold down "fn" and voulume button which is not user friendly when I was doing my handicraft and most of the time has only 1 hand available
  • The caps lock button is together with the alphabet "A"
  • The tab button is together with the alphabet "Q"
  • I seriously think it should be more user-friendly on the button in a way or another, there's a lot of times that I hit the S instead of A when I want to type A because since the caps lock is together with "A", that key is bigger than other key...and I thought it is a function key instead of alphabet... Anyway, when the latch broke and can't hold my ipad anymore, I am really sad T_T

    So I got myself a new keyboard, Zagg folio keyboard - this keyboard sometimes get on my nerves, the keyboard sometime doesn't work at all when I open my iPad =_= I have to off my iPad & keyboard bluetooth and on them again to get it working. Only plus point is the control keys are separated from the number keys. I used Zagg for a few months till recently I found a very strong glue that can glue my logitech keyboard latch. And it works! It holds my iPad once more! But the casing is kinda old, so I went to Daiso and bought this A3 size self adhesive fabric and started cutting and sticking it on top of the keyboard. I was happy when I finish sticking it only to realize that I forgot to cut a hole for the charging port XD

    Anyway, I did managed to have an opening for the charging port and it still look great IMO. It's not a perfect job but better than the uneven surface look. Hohoho~

    Starbucks Food & Drink

    I am someone who love to try new food or drink. Anything that look interesting and of course within my budget, I will try. I think I can also classified myself as a Starbucks LOVER. So therefore, there is no excuse for me not to try the new drink and food from Starbucks.

    Acai Mixed Berry Yogurt Frappuccino - I must say I feel in love with this drink the first time I try it. I think I had it nearly everyday during the 1-for-1 week. XD This drink is made up of yogurt and acai berries and the best part are the juicy pearls that will burst in your mouth with mixed berry mix! This is a must try drink for yogurt and berries lover!

    Otah Otah Frittata Croissant Sandwich - New local delights taste from Starbucks. As a member, Starbucks will update me whenever there's new product, so I told myself I must try the croissant when I received the email from Starbucks. Reason being, I love otah & I love croissant and I love to know how the combination will taste like. Big otah with egg omelette filled with filled with broccoli and onions. The overall combination is nice but I guess the portion is not enough for a big eater. XD So you may consider completing your meal with your favorite Starbucks drink!
