Singapore Airshow 2014

This year round, I managed to visit the Singapore Airshow 2014 on the 3rd day of the trade show. As per the past few exhibitions, it was held at the usual Changi Exhibition Centre (CEC). Getting there is pretty simple via the shuttle bus service at $8 per trip.

This time, I am equipped with my new Canon 70D. Being a novice photographer, catching nice pictures during the aerial display is definitely a challenge! There were a total of 4 different displays for the day: Singapore’s Air Force Black Knights, Yakovlev Yak-130, South Korea’s Black Eagles and Indonesia’s Jupiter Aerobatic Team.

First Sweets of the Year @ Jones the Grocer

On the first day of new year, we headed out to Ion Orchard to send in my wallet to Prada for repair (the crystal studs had rust in them *sob sob). It was surprisingly quiet in town and traffic was particularly smooth on a public holiday.  We walked past Jones the Grocer several times at Mandarin Gallery but we did not find a chance to go in for a try given that it was always pretty crowded. Given that it is a quiet public holiday in town, we were torn on whether we should have our tea-break at Jones the Grocer or Becasse. Since we have always wanted to give Jones a try, we decided to forgo the latter for this time and headed on to Jones instead.

Here’s what we ordered,

The 6 default tips included are Samsung 4, mini-USB, 2x micro-USB, Apple 30-pin, Nokia 2. However, during this Woot’s deal, the lightning tip is included. Hence, in total, it comes with a generous 7 tips. You may also purchase other additional tips which you require like an additional lightning tip, so that you can charge 2 iPhones at the same time.

Disney BRITTO™ Figurine – Sorcerer Mickey

My belated Christmas present for myself finally arrived today after a delay shipment by i-Parcel. Laid my eyes on the Sorcerer Mickey figurine (4030815) when I went shopping at Precious Thots! It is designed by an artist by the name of Mr. Romero Britto. He has many great works that you can find in Orchard ION, Opera Gallery. The BRITTO™ series of his paintings are very nice but they also come at a big price tag. They have a full height painting of Mickey and Minnie displayed in the showcase.

Tea time at D’Zerts Cafe

On a random Sunday before our spa session, we decided to go somewhere near for a quick lunch after dropping Ashley off at my mum’s place. That’s how we chanced upon D’Zerts Cafe conveniently located  at Jalan Pari Burong where we are having our lunch. Although we did not have sufficient time to stop by for desserts straight after lunch, the waffle dessert that they advertised on their window was lingering in my mind. Therefore, I thought, “Let’s check out this cafe on our way back since it is on the way to pick up Ashley.” Indeed, we went back to try out the desserts right after our spa session.
