group shot hehe our first brunch date! myself, qiwen, anthea, ashley, and cheryl. 

brunch date w my anchor girls, followed by a trip to oblong! it was common test week and we didnt have to head back to school that entire week, we were pretty much egg-inspired and decided to meet up for brunch to give ourselves a good treat after IP submission earlier on, and also to settle whatever we had to before everyone goes for their vacation. but fact is that i've already been treating my tummy v well HAHA, gosh. neways it was my second trip to hatched, as usual, i took so long to decide what to eat especially when all the choices available seemed v appealing. after so long, i decided to go ahead w the usual suspects - two eggs done in any style (i went ahead w scrambled eggs), sauteed potatoes, sausage, toast, and coffee. it was alright. anthea's sleepover was awesome though, love the combination! then again, nothing goes wrong w bacon right? oh my love for bacon...

oblong's located at the basement of balmoral plaza. well, the actual reason why we are there's because qiwen works there hahaa. head over to try their icecream, i posted pictures on instagram i think? didnt take my camera out the first time we were there. i gave white coffee almond, and matcha green tea a shot and they were pretty good! lovin' the polaroid wall as well, we took one of those too and stuck it up their wall. well i also received my first xmas present this year, two weeks before xmas hehe and that was from cheryl! so sweet of her x

7. L: huiling, myself, steph. R: sheena and steph.

met up w the dance seniors (yes i was from dance back during my sec sch days), it has been so long! well basically, sheena got back from NZ for a bit, and we hovered over to each other's fb recently and decided to do brunch on a saturday w the rest, to catch up w eachother's life. steph and huiling joined us for brunch that morning too, so good to see them after seven years and four years (huiling was a senior in sa too) respectively! we eventually settled upon the orange thimble, a quaint art cafe tucked away in tiong bahru estate - right next to tiong bahru bakery. i decided to go ahead w the english roll - pork sausage, bacon, mushroom and wild rocket in one wholesome neat pack. i was hungry, as you can tell. also, i love how every cuppa's served w gems at the side, definitely brought by lots of childhood memories. apart from a variery of pastries, they also have a wide selection of cakes, and icecream. great conversations, while savoring our yummy brunch on a saturday morning, it was definitely a good catch up.
