Miam Miam, The French cafe with a Japanese twist!

Miam Miam! A cafe that just recently open at Bugis Junction next to BGH! 

At first before it opened I thought it was some Thai cafe because of the name. Boy was I wrong.. It was not even close!! They were selling one of my favorite food in the world! PANCAKES! SO OBVIOUSLY I MUST TRY IT RIGHT! I was dying to try it for really long already but my wallet says no! Sadly. Until one fine day! I got to try it with Christy!!! 

Really create interior with a bit of retro farm feel! And their menu is so typography! 

So THEY SELL BREAD... but not any kind.. FRENCH TOAST KIND! Just like Hoshino. 
I have yet to try this yet but one day it will come! 

Pretty much the menu reminds me of Hoshino... It almost make me feel like someone wants to compete with them with so many similar food. Or the chef ran away and went to open a new cafe O-O
Since there was curry baked rice, Souffle style pancakes, Souffle, Pasta even the french toast looks the same! And the green tea selections! So is a must try to see which is better right! 

So while waiting for the food! Camwhore and chatting is the way to go /o/! 
The waiting time was longer then Hoshino because usually Hoshino will take around 20 mins. But probably with the crowd it takes longer. so we were just waiting for around 30min+ for our food until we were quite impatient. Oh well all good food must wait right! Just that Vincent wanted to go to colo and play his game! 

So we came here for dessert! Thus we ordered these! 

Valrhona Chocolate Souffle! $13.80 


Matcha Pancakes! 

Surprisnly the Souffle came first so we just ate almost everything while waiting for the pancake. Like after probably 5mins later the pancake came! And it was like matcha heaven for people who love green tea. Im not really a fan of it in pastry, since I prefer just to drink the tea. Im not in the right position to say how good or bad it is. But it was really nice as it makes me want to try the other pancakes! It was really fluffy in the inside a bit crispy on the outside with the ice cream melting into the pancakes!

The Chocolate Souffle on the other hand WAS TO DIE FOR! IT WAS AWESOME IT WAS SO GOOD IT WAS ORGASMIC. Yea I love it that much! I only tried the lava cake and the matcha souffle at Hoshino but they don't have CHOCOLATE SOUFFLE so yea + point here!!! OH GOD! PLEASE GO AND TRY IF YOU LOVE CHOCOLATE AND LOVE SOUFFLE OR LOVE DESSERTS! but prepare to wait!!

Drinks is quite expensive here with their Coffee costing around $5+ for a cup and their Tea costing around $6+. If you are really love Matcha it will cost $7 for a Matcha Latte. Their pasta and rice range from $ 15 - $20 but their desserts range from $ 11 - $15+ So take note of your budget if you are coming here because it will cost you roughly around $30 altogether with someone! Unless if you are alone then well HAPPY EATING 8D!

Chinese New year 2014!

Chinese New Year! One of the best Holidays on the calender! 
Reunions dinners, Awesome Food, Steam boats, Awesome food goodies AND ANG PAOS
Those who are not married will always remember ANG PAOS! 

So Im going to post almost all of my Chinese new year pictures in one post so that my other post won't bore you to death. 

So as usual on the first day of CNY! We go to my Grandpa house TO EAT BABA FOOD! YES! 
Sad that now my grandma is sleeping peacefully. I still miss her food badly and I remember that last cny which I eat my filled. However my grandpa one is also just as good and I always love their cooking! 

All favorite Ayam Buah Keluak!! 

Babi something... XD 

Fish Maw Soup. 

I should really go and learn and master the Peranakan cuisine so that next time my family can enjoy! Shouldn't throw away old family recipes. Those are usually the best ones

And so I found ot my grandpa bought a new dog!! IS called Lucky 2 because his previous one was named lucky too. Funny I have a cousin also got a dog name lucky... WHY DOES PEOPLE LOVE TO CALL THEIR DOG LUCKY... And also I see lot of people naming their pug rocky.. I wonder why.. I saw the 4th one last week on the streets. So lucky 2 is a Pom and it love to spin around! * I think all poms do that right*
And he have the habit of sticking out his tongue too. Such a cutie. 

My Look of the Day for Chinese New Year Day 1! 

After that it was time to go to aunty Jean house because my aunty Phyllis is not in town. 
After settling down and eating their awesome food again! Is time to take pictures! 
I had no idea where Russel went with his girl friend so I took with Cheryl and Rachel! 

Love their house because of the lighting!

Then took family photo! My parents with Aunty Jean and Uncle Mervin 

With the family! I have no idea where Russel went and also my brother was out of town. Oh well! 


After that Vincent came back from Malaysia and came over to my house for dinner with the rest of my cousins! Everyone was too busy talking and eating my dad home cooked hokkian mee and playing Mahjong! 

After a long day of visiting Vincent feel tired but I still told him need to camwhore and he gave me this pose. 

Since it was really long since we took photos together!!! Here a photo of our new addition SHEEPY THE SHEEP. I am so horrible in naming. 

Our relationship 

and my boyfriend. 

and I love him! 

After that he faster went to change and play hearthstone... He cannot live without that game now. 

So while he is playing I go camwhore more then! Since he is dominating my computer!

Outfit of the day! 

Didn't really take much for Day 2, visiting again at my cousin house! So this is my outfit for the day! 

Then come Sunday which is the 3rd day of CNY! Was going visiting yet again and the first stop is at my father friend house which they are Japanese!!! Heard they were cooking awesome food!! 

Look of the day taken in the car! 

So we went late so most of the food was already half eaten! But I took photos of the curry which is not really photogenic and ODEN! OH GOD ODEN! And their curry was sooo good too! I felt like I was in an anime when I was eating it! They also made carrot cake, Salad and even mee siam! You cannot take away the Singapore cultural once you are living here XD! 

Then came the Yu Sheng! Needed 2 because there was so many people! 

The script that they were reading! 


Salmon AND salmon SKIN! wOO


And then is done! Look at the difference.. there was more greens at the other plate. 

One thing special is that they have so many Japanese snack I never seen before!! 

Oh god this was good! 

And all different kinds too!! I was drooling! 

There was even a wine table and I spot this one immediately! Taste really nice!! 

Pink snack! with red bean paste! 

Honestly I don't know what is this BUT IT WAS SUPER SWEET 

He was soo happy too XD 

So after that we went to Xiao Hao place to play blackjack and I am so sure I am not lucky this year for gambling! Shall not try my luck anymore. Vincent have more luck then me. After that we went to Ian house to eat dinner and HOMG was it awesome! All the food there makes me drool!! My dad even told me they had Italian chicken rice... I was stun! Really like their new year porridge with duck meat!! Rachel even told me that she help make it and it was super delicious! She even bake pumpkin cake and chocolate muffin! I tell you that girl can really bake! The only sad thing was poor rocky was stuck in the room since he was not allow out during parties. 

Then come monday! My family house party! Didn't take much photo again because I was too busy running around and entertaining people! Thanks to Vincent for helping out too and those who came over like Priscilla, Jon, Jes, Vic, Ruby, Hui Jie, Ethel, Desmond, Yi chuan, Joe and Alex! *not sure if I miss anyone* Hope you had fun!! with all the eating and drinking!! wahahha!
