A Better Florist - Luxury Floral and Plant Service

Love is something that should not be displayed only on special occasion, it should be shown on a daily basis. Sending your loved ones flower is a good way to deliver your message.

Girls still love receiving flowers, it makes us feel excited at the sight of it. Flower symbolizes romance, it is a tradition to buy a flower for your wife or girlfriend as a token of love. 

There’s a story behind every flower gift, it can deliver the message of: 
- Thank you. 
- I’m thinking of you. 
- I love you. 

You want to show someone special that you care, and so every detail has to be right.

It has been awhile since I last received flowers.
That's why my mood instantly lifted up when I received this lovely bouquet flower from A Better Florist.

Thanks A Better Florist for brightening up on day.

Rest assured of the quality because the flowers are sourced directly from flower farms in the Cameron Highlands and the bouquet is designed by their professional florist. Each bouquet looks stunning and is long-lasting.

I received The Keira bouquet ($98) from A Better Florist.

The bouquet is filled with fresh lilies, roses and a delicate posy of ammi majus that is wrapped in their signature rustic burlap. The Keira makes me stop and stare. 

Being wrapped in a rustic burlap helps to protect every petal, making the bouquet long lasting.

I was charmed by the floral fragrance, the smell of fresh flowers made me feel like I was in a garden with flowers close by my side.

Happenings in January - Saizeriya + Let's Meat Up

Sunday 15/1/17

Another one more week to the start of a new school semester. Once school starts, I will not be able to fully enjoy my weekend as time needs to be set aside for assignment. Free weekend is important to me and I will try to make it well spent.

Spent my Sunday lazing in town.
I love wearing t-shirt when I feel lazy to dress up, I have quite a fair bit of t-shirts in my wardrobe.

We spent our late afternoon roaming around Orchard where we indulged ourselves in delicious food, cravings satisfied. 

We stopped by Cold Stone Creamery @ Orchard Central for a rest and to have a cup of ice-cream. I have a soft spot for ice-cream.

We have Cheesecake Fantasy. This is the best creation I have tried so far.
The cheesecake ice cream was toppled with graham cracker pie crust, blueberries and strawberries. Every bite tasted heavenly delicious.

We then went for an early dinner at 6pm as bf needs to head back early on Sunday. Hence, our Sunday will just be a short 3-4 hours dates as he couldn't meet me early too.

We have our dinner at Saizeriya, a place I haven't been to for a long time. We went to the outlet at Orchard Gateway.

We order 2 appetizer to go with our meal - Chicken Fritto ($3.90) and Baked Asari ($3.90).

For my main course, I have Curry Chicken Baked Rice ($5.90).
The baked rice is a little spicy though, thankfully there is free flow of drinks to ease the spiciness.

We have Panna Cotta ($4.90) for dessert, an Italian classic dessert.
Dinner was $24.50 which was pretty decent, I love dining in places with no service charge and GST. Recommend me more of these places if you know of any.

Monday 16/1/17

It's Monday again, hope the work week will pass fast. 
Looking forward to this weekend because I am heading to JB for last minute CNY shopping and staycation. 

We traveled down to Plaza Singapura for lunch.

Walked past Let's Meat Up at B1 and decided to give it a try.
It is a Japanese restaurant where the main food selection is their charcoal grilled proteins with choice of rice or soba.

I tried on the Grilled Boneless Chicken Leg marinated with Homemade Teriyaki Sauce.
The meat is juicy and portion just nice for me.

4 more days to weekend.
Jiayou.

Wednesday 18/1/17

Happy mid week. 
Thankfully, it is not a very tough week. In fact, I have an enjoying day today. A day where I am exposed to performing music myself. Usually I only listen and watch band performing, but today I was actually part of the big band performing. It was a nice experience learning different musical instruments and playing the songs.

I was playing the bass guitar. 
Bass is similar to guitar, the only difference is the key played. The key played for bass is pretty low while the key played for guitar is of a higher note.

Ended the post with my tea break from Mr Bean.
Thanks for reading my short update.

Johor Bahru Day 3: Restoran Ya Wang + Why Him Movie Review

It's the first day of 2017.
Happy new year, everybody.

We woke up at 8 plus again to have our free breakfast buffet provided by the hotel. Feel a little dreading today, it was our last day of our short getaway. We headed down to the restaurant at same timing as yesterday.

We started our day with a nice breakfast provided by the hotel. The eggs were so nice and addictive, we helped ourselves with 2 servings, so yummy.

Other than eggs, I also ate you tiao. 
It is not crispy like the one we have in Singapore.

Went back hotel to rest until check out time.
Pack our barang barang too.

Selfie time.

Dome with packing up.
Time for check out and proceed for our lunch.

I have a comfortable 3D2N stay at New York Hotel. It is decent and clean, a place that I will want to come back and stay again.

Stepping out of our hotel.
Waiting for the car to pick us up.

We traveled down to Jalan Segget which is near JB custom to try out Restoran Ya Wang 鸭皇药材烧腊大王.

A very famous restoran for their duck. It was nearly full house when we reached at 12.30pm.

We had ai yu ice jelly drink recommended by the staff.
The drink was refreshing and ease our thirst. 

We ordered half a duck to share.
I'm not really a fan of herbal but this herbal duck is an exception. The gravy coated gave a savoury taste and the herbal taste was not that overwhelming.

My favourite omelette.
I simply love eating eggs.

Having good food makes me happy.
 Lunch cost about RM67.

After lunch, we walked to JB City Square which was around 10 minutes walk. We decided to catch a movie before we went back to Singapore. We were watching 'Why Him' which started at 2.30pm. The movie ticket costs RM18 per person.

During the holidays, loving but overprotective Ned (Bryan Cranston) travels to California to visit his daughter Stephanie (Zoey Deutch) at Stanford University. While there, he meets his biggest nightmare: her well-meaning but socially awkward boyfriend, Laird (James Franco). Even though Laird is a multimillionaire, Ned disapproves of his freewheeling attitude and unfiltered language. His panic level escalates even further when he learns that Laird plans to ask for Stephanie's hand in marriage.

t
'Why Him' is a hilarious and entertaining show. I was laughing all the way from start to end. There is lots of swearing words use. It's about a movie of how the future father-in-law accepts the prospective son-in-law, how they get along and win her father's consent.

It's worth watching for the humour.

Movie rating: 3.5/5

Before I left JB, I got macha and salted egg cheese tarts from Season.
I find it nice when I first tried in at KP's place, so I wanna it for my family to try.

Back to Singapore, I have my dinner at Kopitiam before heading back home.

That goes my 3 days short getaway trip. 
It was my first time away of Singapore during New Year. Back to Singapore for a new beginning. Hope 2017 will be an awesome year, happy 2017.

Can't wait for the next getaway.
