Okada Coffee

I just found this place not long ago on facebook and went down to try with Christy and I got to say this is one of the hidden gems that I found! 
I'm going to use some photos from their facebook because I didn't take their interior but just their food. I will update with my photos once I am there again! 
After months and weeks of stalking their facebook and seeing their food and dessert. I found the perfect timing to go down with Christy because she wanted to eat some dessert and this place came to my mind. 

Is cute how they always post on their facebook everyday saying good morning and they are open now. Showing like daily food menu, desserts and their coffee. The place is really decent, tuck away in a small corner of 100 AM. It looks like a quaint cafe with a really homey feel to it. 
  



Christy made a comment saying that their pictures on the menu or on their board looks really bad with the lighting and doesn't really look appealing. I got to agree with her that it looks pretty bad but good news is that the food doesn't! Well I rather the picture look bad and the food taste great then the opposite. 

We have yet to tried their main course yet because we are always going there for desserts. I do see many people who comes in eating their curry rice and hamburg steak, so im sure it is good! 


What I am most interested in is these!~ High tea sets with hot and cold desserts and cakes!!! YOU CAN'T SAY NO TO CAKES!!!! I haven't have the time to try their high tea yet because the timing I always go is after 7pm, but ONE DAY! I WILL! 

They have a variety of dessert but do be warn that sometimes those cakes and desserts are sold out or not available!  


So on to my photos =X which I took with my photo because I forgot to bring out my camera twice! 
The first time we went, we tried their souffle cheese cake and hot apple pie! Along with their dessert set which comes with a drink. 

I order the hot apple pie with the Okada blend and Christy had the souffle cheese cake with tea. 

The tea was pretty normal but the Okada Blend coffee was good! It was server with a cream instead of the usual creamer powder or milk. The cream is not that sweet but yet have milky taste which suit the coffee well. I got to say that I don't really drink black coffee or any coffee without flavoring. ( Like starbucks) However I wanted to try hoping it will taste like MOF free coffee from the membership. (no idea why I love that coffee) And to my surprise it was better than it! I totally love their coffee and doesn't mind going back for more!  

Cheese Cake - $6 
Add $4 for a drink to make it a set! 


On to the cheesecake and apple pie! The cheese cake is also normal, I won't say is the best cheese cake around but is decently good. For those who crave for cheesecake can be satisfied with this. 

The apple pie however is the best thing I tried since I don't know when! The moment it came I was amaze by is appearance. Doesn't looks like the best plated dish but it really look appetizing with the big scoop of ice cream and blue berry sauce all over. Since it is a hot dessert they did warn us that it will take awhile to cook and we didn't mind. Once we tried the first bite of the apple bite, both of us were in heaven. The apple inside mix with the crust of the apple pie which was flaky but yet chewy. Eat it together with the blue berry sauce and ice cream and you got a perfect harmony! I got to say, this dish is a must try if you love apple pie. 

Apple Pie - $9 

After a really awesome dessert we had the other day we decided to come down again to try their other desserts! Christy ordered the Maccha cake and Ice coffee with ice cream and jelly while I ordered the apple french toast with ice cream and my favorite okada blend. 

I cannot really say much about Maccha cakes because I'm not a big fan of green tea pastry. I would need vincent to tell me that because he loves them. The cake was really nice to me since it was bitter yet sweet due to the layer of red bean paste in the middle. A cake I feel that came out of yumeiro patissiere anime. 


Maccha Cake - $6 
Okada Blend coffee - $6
Coffee jelly in Cafe Latte - $6.50 

When I went the other time, I asked the staff if they got this dish but they turn me down saying they didn't have it that day. I was really sad so I took the apple pie instead. This time the pastry chef was here and he told me if I can wait for 10mins he will make for me! I gladly say yes and wait patiently for it! When you re talking to your friend, time passes really fast XD  

He came out with the french toast in a baked rice plate and say enjoy. Boy.. Did I enjoy this dish. It was amazing! Ice cream on the right, fresh cream on the left, with french toast, mash apples, pie crust all in one plate. Is like apple pie + french toast + cream in bite size pieces. I didn't regret ordering this!!! I tried the french toast at Hoshino coffee and Miam Miam both really good. But the day I tried this, it just topped the charts. Maybe it was because of the apple? or the crust with the toast and the ice cream? I really don't know but I know that it was delicious! This luscious apple french toast is something to shout about and it cost $6!

The others is more gooey, chewy and soft, these are more bite size pieces with flaky pie crust and chewy toast. That's the comparison which nailed it for me!

Apple french toast with ice cream - $6 

I am definitely going back to try more of their desserts and main course because this place just keep on surprising me! I can't wait to find what's my next favorite dish is that will make me crave for more!

iscream - Ice Cream U scream


Had an meet up with Trishala and Cassie last week LIKE FINALLY!!! Miss those two girls but because of work we rarely meet up now! Well our friendship wont ever die thou! So after our dinner trish said she wanted to bring us to go eat ice cream at bedok at a place she saw but have yet to tried! 

It was called iScream! Ice cream U scream... We all scream for ice cream XD! 

If you are driving and on the road you can notice their iScream logo which is lighten up brightly making them stand out from the other stores. Thats when you know the shop is there! 


Just around the area of bedok 85 food heaven there is many ice cream stall and one of them is iScream. 






A bigger picture of their menu! Taken from their facebook 


( Waffle!!!My favorite!! ) 




Really homey feel with a hint of the modem world with their TV menus and ice cream show case! 
Can you believe it? This is a movable ice cream showcase fridge! Damn stupid of me x-x forgot to take a video! It spins around and there a paddle which you step on it to stop or move back slowly! Is so cool because is the first time seeing it XD 




They have the normal flavors and unique flavors and flavors which you can add alcohol with it. 
The one that caught our eye straight was Milo! 

Seems like this is their ice cream menu but I think they won't have every ice cream everyday. 
The day I went they didn't have cookie and cream =(( sadly!




Some their special menu item includes messy plate and social media plate! 





we wanted to try it but we didn't want any alcohol. soo maybe next time! 
We did try their screaming waffles thou!! 

You also can self add toppings too! They put it in cute plant tins which is easily accessible! 




The device that rings like a crazy bitch when your food is ready! 


A bit of photo taking before the food come! 


The 3 of us! sadly mazin couldn't make it =( 


You two look great! I NEED TO FIND LIKE OUR SECONDARY SCHOOL PHOTOS! And compare!


Vincent order a normal screaming waffle with salted caramel!! What he said is the waffle is nice and the salted caramel is just that. Nothing special but nothing bad too. Is just salted caramel ice cream. It was not HOLY FUCKING GOD IS SALTED AND IS CARAMEL ICE CREAM! Guess thats as good as it can be thou. I doubt you can make a even more FABULOUS salted caramel ice cream unless you have some special ingredient ^.- 



and we girls ordered the red velvet with cream cheese and topped off with Milo and vanilla bean ice cream!  
They recommended us to take the red velvet so we just say ok lets try it! 


Overall the waffle is good with the ice cream but still cannot beat my favorite waffle at gelare! The Milo ice cream was just like what we imagine being a childhood favorite since young. IS MILO! NOTHING GOES WRONG WITH MILO!! Correct? Correct!! And vanilla Bean! because it goes well with good old fashion vanilla. 

Anyway I feel I should really try their specialties which is the messy plate and social media plate! Since this is the only place you can get it! If you are around the area go and try it and tell me is it yay or nay!

Pslove - Your period care package!

your period care package for a happier you! 

stumble across this website from Facebook and I give it a click! After reading what pslove was about I immediately fell in love with the idea! 
since when does a girl like period? the blood.. the pain.. the mood...the convenient.. almost everything is bad about it but we have no choice but to live with it! Usually we find ways to cheer ourselves up when we have period. Like for me I will roll in bed moaning in pain and saying my life sucks because of the cramps after popping 2 pink pills. or try to make myself better by nomming on my boyfriend arm asking if he loves me the whole time. 

We have to live with it =( we have to live with this thing almost every month even! so i decided to try pslove for my next period to see does it really change my mood and myself to have a happier me. 

Oh! They also put up a special link for boyfriends to give to their girlfriends! such a wonderful idea right! which is at www.forher.pslove.co !! because for guys to prevent pms abuse! I hinted Vincent for quite a while to ask him to get it for me and to my surprise he really did! ( ok I treated him dinner after that XD) but I wanted to see the special message that your guy will sent to you! other then that I think everything is pretty much the same! 

and so the package arrived! For the first time we ordered. we asked if they can sent like the next day because of the period timing. I was not really sure when it will come and it usually varies from 3 - 5 days. and they were so sweet to delivery it the next day with a smile!! Really love their commitment and customer service. The box came with a heart and taped on tightly! 







XOXO


Is time to open it! Is like opening a bellabox or blackbox to me, like a surprise!


warped with pink paper. so thats how the pink heart get is colour. I thought it was some fabric stuck on it. 

AND Goodies!!! 



the sweet message that I pester vincent for it! hee!! love the message Vin! 
and the message from pslove below! I gave him more hugs after that haha!! 


so what is really in the package? All these 
Chocolates 
Heat Packs
Little snacks 
Herb tea
eye mask 
sweets 
and pads! 


Is like saying... For you to indulge in this period of time when you are uncomfortable! These chocolates and treats will make your day better 8D! 


Underneath all those treats was the pads!! You can choose up till 15 pad and mix and match up to 3 types! 
Is really good if you want to try different brands and different size so that next time you know what if your preference! 


The labeling of the pads!! This is really sweet of them to go the extra mile and not just dump all in one and let you search for it. 


Im not sure if you can change the brand of the pantyliner but Im going to ask for my next one and shall update! 


pasted on little sticker hearts for labeling to tell which is which! 


and when you remove everything a little sweet note! 

Goodbye Period. 
Hello Freedom!! :) 

Made me smile! 


The one did we choose was complete happiness if you are buying yourself or else is the special for the one if your boyfriend is buying for you! 



The guys one is just too cute 

PSLOVE

Hey bro, we've been there.
Every month.
When her period comes,
it can be difficult. For both of you.
Some say it's nature, 
some say it's hormones,
some say it's "bo bian".
We say it's an opportunity
to show her that you care.
For all the guys out there who every time get pms abuse, you may reconsider this to have a little ammo on your side when your girl is having her period. well since my one did and he is happier now because i didn't really bother him! 

so for $19 you can get all these and 15 pads that will surely last you for your period. In fact I still got leftovers! The heat pads are wonderful and the sweet treats will boost your mood! and overall when you receive it, you will feel happier already! 


Thank you Pslove!! for creating such an item that make something for dreadful and annoying into something more pleasant and comfortable!
