Still practising the acrylic nail art. It’s a lot harder than it looks.

US Doggie Bakery

We visited the branch located in Turf City, though the address couldn’t be found in the website. And it’s only at this point that I realised I had totally neglected to take any photos of Nikky! Silly mummy. I will remember next time.

Farmart

Over the weekend, I went for a fish spa session at Farmart. http://www.farmart.com.sg/

What is fish spa?

“(Nov 11) SOME people squirm wildly and cry out as they thrash in a treatment pool. Other alarmed types thump the walls. Strong men, meanwhile, have been known to giggle.

These reactions are from Singaporeans being eaten alive by fish.

No, it’s not some sort of bizarre Jaws experience involving sharks and hot tubs. It’s a new craze catching on in a big way – fish therapy.

Tiny toothless Turkish spa fish, of the Garra rufa species, nibble off the dead skin on your hands and feet, leaving healthy skin to grow.

The feeling? Something between hundreds of tweezers and tiny suction cups gently pecking at your feet.

According to enthusiasts, the feeding sessions by these 9cm- to 12cm-long fish can leave you feeling massaged, glowing and with improved skin.

Many people also believe that the Doctor Fish therapy can cure problems like psoriasis, a disease that causes red, scaly patches to appear on the skin.

It’s become popular in Japan, South Korea, China and Europe, and three places offering this service have sprung up in Singapore over the past year.”

It was a fun couple of hours. Farmart is more then just a place for fish spa. There are also farms, shops and restaurants.

I think it’s true that children brings joy to our lives. It was certainly a fun day out!

Perth in December – Jetstar promo

On Friday, I came back from lunch to this email from Jetstar, “blah blah…new route from Singapore to Perth…from $8…..”

$8!!!!!! I quickly went to the website. Ok, $8 tickets each way allows only hand-carry luggage, but we can get 20kg of check-in baggage allowance if we purchase the $28! The promotion ends that night at 10pm, and only whilst stocks last… and I’ve got a problem, I would need to obtain my leave approval and my boss is still at lunch!

I sat at the edge of my seat and waited nervously till he strolled in 20 mins later. I literally chased him to his desk, explained my situation and ask if he could approve my leave immediately. Oh! I love my boss! He is soooo understanding, and was happy that I could make a trip ‘home’, too. In fact, he asked me to send my formal leave application AFTER I’ve booked the promo tickets as he understands that with these promo tickets, we are sometimes unable to get the dates we want, and would have to be more flexible with the travel dates. How sweet is that?

I bounded back to my desk and booked the tickets right away.

I’m feeling deliriously happy. I’m going back to Perth in December!

Yes, I know it’s just for a visit and I’ll only be there for a week, but it would be three years since I left.

I’m looking forward to the trip. The one reason why this trip has been postponed so many times is because the cost is prohibitive. A return ticket from Singapore Airlines would set me back $1188! Back in my days, it would cost just $700+. During my uni days, student tickets could be obtained for $500+!

2 hours later, a friend from Perth who’s also back in Singapore sent me a msg on MSN. I told him about the offer and he immediately went to book a ticket, too. He is a sky-diving fanatic and goes to Perth for sky-diving. Alas, the $8 tickets are no more! The best prices he can get is $108 one way, and $88 the other. No matter, it is still cheap!

I’m looking forward to the trip, and have sent emails/FB msgs to my friends. I’ve so many people to catch up with, and food to eat! (Yummy yummy chilli mussels here I come!)

Think I might rent a car from the airport, instead of renting a cheap car from Bayswater car rental in the city. That would be more convenient, especially since we’re talking about midnight flights.

Went to Farmart today for fish spa. Will blog about that later, photos included!

Portman’s Chicago Chic

Think sophistication, sleek and sexy! Black and white sketchy prints, lots of lace and loads of tulle – very boudoir! Tough black leather and soft seductive lace are trends that will take you from pounding the pavement to hitting the dance floor, and ensure that when you enter a room every eye will be on you.

If you’re in Aussie, please rush into Portmans and get a piece of this! Beautiful and amazing. I particularly like the first and third outfits.

My 2-carat wonder

It’s just really nice to have pretty things around to use. I think with this cup, I’ll be drinking more water through my work day. Isn’t it brilliant? The price of this brilliance? $26.90.

Buko Nero

Buko Nero is a nice little Italian restaurant along Tanjong Pagar road. Family-owned, Chef Oscar whips up fabulous dishes, while his wife and mother-in-law serves. Amongst the stretch of bridal shops and local pubs along Tanjong Pagar Road, I was surprised to find such a place.

Buko Nero is almost always fully booked. Rumour has it that we have to book three months in advance to get a place! We are lucky that someone else cancelled.

Occupying just a single shophouse unit, it is small but very homely.

It is easy to catch a cab right outside the restaurant after the meal. If you drive it would be a real pain though.

I’ve also provided a review from Asiaone, for further reference.
