I had a craving for waffles the other day, and after scouring through online reviews, decided to head over to Wimbly Lu at Serangoon. Unfortunately, it was full on a weeknight at 8pm and they weren’t accepting any reservations.
Since we were already there, we decided to try the next door pizzeria, La Pizzaiola.
The ambience was cozy, modern and clean. Waiters were really friendly and humorous too. :)
We ordered a Rucola Parma pizza ($19.90) and a Pizzoccheri Della Valtellina ($15.90), which is a handmade whole grain pasta with butter, sage, potato and cheese.
The pizza was unfortunately very underwhelming. The base was chewy and hard, and the flavours somehow didn’t really come together. The ones from our favourite Peperoni’s is still the best so far.
The pasta was really special though! I didn’t manage to take a photo because the hubs decided to dig in before I could say anything, so this photo was taken from another blog.
It was served like a calzone, kind of. The handmade pasta had a nice texture, and I’m a sucker for anything buttery, creamy and cheesy, so this sauce hit all the right spots. The portion was a bit too little though!
If I stayed nearby, I might visit again to try the other dishes, since the service we received was so pleasant and welcoming. :)
This too, shall pass.

I wanted to clean my Laneige BB Cushion sponge and tried the following which didn’t work:
So I turned to the Internet, and found this great YouTube video! Turns out, all you need is bar soap. And just rub until the liquid turns from beige to clear. It’s shown very clearly in the below 2 minute video.
Voila.. clean sponge!
I attended a wedding dinner at SEA Aquarium with my mum recently, as her plus one. Again, I attempted to curl my hair, but either the (crazy) humidity is not having it, or my hair iron has reached the end of its road.
This hair is after 2 rounds of hair spray, blow drying upside down, and curling in 2 layers (which I have never done before). And still, the curls died sometime into dinner. What do I have to do to make my curls stay?!
We got to the location at around 7, and the cocktail area was around a cylindrical tank. We sat there admiring the fishes while waiting to enter the dinner area.
When the clock struck 8, it was finally time to go in, and this was what greeted us.
It must be the most unique wedding venue I’ve been to so far. Probably cost a pretty penny, too. The seats were in 3 tiers, and my mum and I got a table right in front of the huge glass panel. Lucky us. :)
Having a huge aquarium as a backdrop while dining is not an everyday experience!
I hate it when photos are grainy and low-quality, but it’s just not practical to lug a DSLR around on a normal day. Hopefully, the day that camera photos are super high quality, will come very soon!
The floral decorations were lovely too. First time seeing trees at a wedding dinner! I think they’re meant to be sakura?
Anyhow, the trees created a very romantic and whimsical atmosphere. Food-wise, it was average, but I guess you can’t have everything eh.
I have to say though… when I came here as a visitor, there were notices requesting silence, and flash photography was forbidden.
But uh… during the wedding dinner, somehow these rules were just thrown out like they never existed. Loud music, floodlights that shone like lighthouses, and the emcee’s booming voice resonated throughout the entire dinner.
I thought that even the slightest noise and small camera flashes are supposed to traumatise the fishes? What in the what?
Did I just witness the power of what money can do? My, my.
