Dine at Poulet with CID pals few months ago. The food tasted good and appetizing. If you dine there for the first time, I will recommend you to order the roasted chicken! The creamy sauce blended well with the chicken! The sauce tasted just right yet not too.. flavourful for my taste bud. 

The next one I will recommend will be the pork. It was well-marinated with quite a decent portion. However, I thought that it will be better if the meat wasn't that tough. The rest of the dishes was good as well. 

If you are looking for an affordable food to dine, this may not be a good choice since the food is rather expensive.

B for breakfast @ A for Arbite
Scrambled eggs, bacon, homemade braised beans, grilled tomato, chicken & chilli sausage, confit button mushroom, roasted pumpkin and toasted brioche with seasonal jam.

The portion of this dish is big! You may consider to order only if you have a empty stomach. Personally, I thought that the food was well-cooked. I like the homemade braised beans and grilled tomatos! The scrambled eggs was good though I felt that it was a little dry. Overall, it is a hearty breakfast to indulge!

When Thomas wakes up trapped in a massive maze with a group of other boys, he has no memory of the outside world other than strange dreams about a mysterious organization known as W.C.K.D. Only by piecing together fragments of his past with clues he discovers in the maze can Thomas hope to uncover his true purpose and a way to escape. Based upon the best-selling novel by James Dashner.

Personally, I felt that the story flow well with a good plot. Though it may seem similar to the hunger games and divergent, it was more compact and smart as a whole. I do not know if it is only me, the plot reminded me of the Bourne movie series since the character also loses his memory. Experiments and test were also involved.  

I enjoyed how the scenes were being built up each moment. With that, it kept viewers engaged throughout the film. Certain intense and humour scenes were injected which brings this film to another level. 

The mysterious organization only became clearer to Thomas when He piece up the people, objects and dreams together. That was when the mystery was being revealed. This film also educate viewers the importance of trust and teamwork even if the circumstances may change.

Sunny Waffle @ Pastamania
Waffle served with maple syrup & butter accompanied with two sunny side-up eggs & corned beef mixed with baked beans. 

Personally, I thought the waffle was slightly over-cooked though with good texture. It will be better if it is more crispy. It tasted just alright for me as it was not too.. sweet for my taste bud. The eggs were nicely done as it was not over-cooked. I adore the baked beans most as it was flavourful and appetizing.

One of the breakfast set you should try in Pastamania.

Tried the meatballs spaghetti at Chef b western delight. I thought that this tomato based pasta tasted pretty good. The sauce was not too flavourful for my taste bud. Also, the meatballs was chewy and well-marinated. Not to forget the good texture of the pasta as well. This is one of the better dish I have tasted in the menu.

Personally, I am a person who is particular about the comfort, design and appearances of the product. As long as everything mentioned comes into place with a reasonable price, I might consider purchasing the item.

Stumbled upon the above Vans Sneaker at ZALORA and I adore it pretty much. Personally, I think this sneaker caught my attention for its trendy design and pleasant colour combination.

I browse through Vans shoes previously in departmental stores, the kind of fabric used were mostly made out of 100% cotton canvas. Thus, I need not worry about the discomfort I might face with this product. 

There are more variety to choose from at ZALORA. A simple and comfortable Vans sneaker for a casual day out.

If not, a vibrant and trendy footwear to match my outfit for special occasions.

Comfort is definitely an important factor for footwear. It upsets one as it might cause inconvenience to yourself and the people around you.

The city needs heroes. Darkness has settled over New York City as Shredder and his evil Foot Clan have an iron grip on everything from the police to the politicians. The future is grim until four unlikely outcast brothers rise from the sewers and discover their destiny as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The Turtles must work with fearless reporter April O'Neil (Megan Fox) and her wise-cracking cameraman Vern Fenwick (Will Arnett) to save the city and unravel Shredder's diabolical plan.

Watched Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with Trois. Personally, I felt that the plot was direct, simple yet rather predictable. A simple plot which was carefully crafted. With that, the story flow rather well from one scene to another. There were certain intense and humour scenes injected which bring this film to another level. Great effort for the nice visual elements and video composition presented in certain scenes which make the overall experience a even better one. 

Even though it turns out different from my childhood Ninja Turtles, I felt that the story was pretty good.

Kenshin Himura is a legendary swordsman in the wars accompanying the turbulent fall of Japans Shogunate in the 19th century. Once feared as Battosai the Killer, he has adopted a peaceful life since the arrival of the new age in Japanese history. But Makoto Shishio, the Shadow Killer who succeeded to Kenshins position in the service of the new government, has since then been active in the Kyoto underworld. Because he knew too much of the dark side of the new government, he was stabbed and his body set on fire. He survived, however and, wrapped in bandages, has raised an army of disaffected former samurai with the aim of overthrowing the new regime. Agreeing to a request by Toshimichi Okubo, the Home Minister, Kenshin leaves his friends in Tokyo and sets out for Kyoto. He and Shishio are a match in skill and in wits, but their aims are opposite. Kenshin seeks to preserve the nation without breaking his vow that he will kill no more.

Watched Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno yesterday evening. Been looking forward to this film after watching Rurouni Kenshin in 2012!

Personally, I felt that this sequel was pretty good. The story was direct and started pretty well in the beginning. However, it went slightly draggy while I watched. As compared, I thought that the flow was not as good as Rurouni Kenshin. Nevertheless, this show was rather compact with certain history, background and fight scenes presented. 

The fight scenes were still as amazing as before which was one of the selling point you should take note. Certain humour was injected which brighten up the show as well. The story got more intense towards the end, drawing my my attention to find out more what could happen next. 

If Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno was good, I think the finale will be even better!

Had this signature soft-shell chilli crab wanton noodle @ Iwan noodle! Was recommended by one of my colleague to this eatery. Personally, this dish tasted reasonably tasty. The gravy was not that spicy yet slightly sweet which was appetizing. The soft-shell crab was nicely cooked and was crispy. Decent portion which satisfy one's tummy. However, I thought that the texture of the noodle could be improved. Do try out this dish if you are around the vicinity.
