i have so many things to tell you - the first one is that i am really happy that you are back home this christmas. definitely the best gift i can ever ask for (except that you forgot to wrap yourself up haha) i am so blessed. you are my absolute favorite santa clus as well; thanks for getting me so many lovely gifts from the uk hehe, you've spoiled me so much. i wish that you will always look at the bright side of things and that trouble will stay away from you. i cant wait for our little trip around uk and paris. such a dream come true even though we will be apart for a while. dont ever forget that you are a wonderful man; the most beautiful and genuine person i have ever met this life.
merry christmas, and i love you.

cups n canvas is a cafe-studio located along selegie road, just a stone throw away from pomo. well you get the idea from the shop name itself, cups n canvas combines both art and food. they offer courses such as printmaking and painting (similar concept to arteastiq), they do also sell the canvas paintings.

we decided to go with the sweet potato latte, which is almost the most popular item at the shop. well, it was a pleasant surprise! that was my first time having a cuppa sweet potato latte. such interesting flavor, and i really liked it. cant compare them to the ones in korea (i heard it's popular in korea) simply because well, i havent been to korea. it was really refreshing. the two pasta dishes we ordered (blanc bacon, greeno pesto) were on point as well, especially the pesto. im a huge fan of pesto, and that didnt disappoint at all! the food was also reasonably priced, they have some lunch and dinner set going on, you might want to check out.

Fit To Win SG (FTW)

8 weeks. 5%. Are you FIT to WIN?

Everyone wants to keep fit! & here's your chance to try new fitness activities, have fun with your friends and make money at the same time;

The concept is simple. Players begin by placing a bet of SGD$20 into a general money pot. Everyone who loses 5% or more of their starting weight over the course of eight weeks gets to split the pot equally. In addition, the top three players who loses the highest percentage of their starting weight will be further rewarded with prizes worth up to SGD$3000!

Fit To Win is a derivative of the highly successful online social dieting game, DietBet. Based in New York, DietBet has yielded incredible results as thousands of players have successfully lost weight while participating in the competition. The secret, they say, is a combination of social accountability, support and a healthy dose of peer pressure.

What makes Fit To Win different from DietBet?
On top of providing a platform for like ‐ minded Singaporeans to lose weight together, Fit To Win goes further by offering every player a fully sponsored eight-week fitness program to help them reach their goals. Thus, every Fit To Win player will be entitled to free fitness classes, such as Zumba, Bokwa, Kickboxing, Pilates, Muay Thai, Yoga and many more, conducted by Fit To Win’s fitness partners. All participants will also enjoy other free recreational activities during these 8 weeks such as laser tag, gaming sessions and more!

How to register?
Online registration opens on 15 December 2013.
To ensure a fair game, every player will be required to attend a Fit To Win weigh-in session from 12-19 January 2014 to officially register their starting weight. At the end of the eight-weeks, on 16 March 2014, the Fit To Win Final Weigh-­‐in will take place in the form of a mass workout event at Fort Canning Green. The top 3 winners will also be announced at the event.
With the rising trend of obesity in Singapore, Fit To Win aims to introduce an entirely new way for Singaporeans to lose weight and get fit. It is a challenge that requires commitment and discipline, but at the same time, extremely fun and rewarding. Most importantly, Fit To Win provides positive reinforcement for all its participants in the form of a friendly community that will offer support and motivation every step along the way in order to reach a common goal.

Early bird special: Register by 31st December 2013 and you will be entitled to 30 class credits (usual:24)

Stand a chance to participate in the one-of-a-kind weight loss challenge for FREE!

Oh simple thing where have you gone?

this could be the end of everything, so why don't we go - somewhere only we know?

got me so emotional.

sad to see rough copy leaving though. luke and rough copy are my top two faves this season. everyone from xfactor uk's so damn talented, no one should go (perfect situation) but well.. for now, luke to win!

talk about efficiency. well guys, i'm finally done with my last paper for this year (say hello to three weeks break - only three weeks?!?! sadly yes) december has been really awesome so far, minus the fact that my paper falls the day after my birthday. which means, of course, i spent my birthday studying for that damn paper. i have more time to blog now, but i dont think people are actually reading this since everyone's on ig or even dayre? i dont knw about dayre, but i dont think i want to hop on to the bandwagon just yet.

checked out la ristrettos w sean back in sept when he's still in town. i was really attracetd to the lovely space and decors from pictures on instagram (haha but of course) i love brick walls. i love how homely it make people feel, and of course it is a huge draw for me. the cafe is relatively small though, but they do have outdoor seatings. we were there on a weekday, and thus it was really quiet, and at one point, we had the whole cafe to ourselves - which i liked! i mean who would've guessed that such a gem exist within a medical centre? but of course, due to word of mouth, instagram and other forms of social media, this place is known now. not one of them hipster cafes, but definitely worth a visit!

Cant believe it...
