Joined the dark side and got the Nespresso Pixie (Electric Red)! The recommended retail price (RRP) is S$398 but thanks to a friend who is working in Nestle, I managed to get it at staff price!
The machine is Made in Switzerland (NOT China) and I like how they have a handle together with the box for you to carry it easily! The box includes 16 capsules. You can shop for more capsules over at their online store, Club Nespresso, or using their Nespresso iPhone App. There are 3 prices for their capsules. Prices below are for each capsule:

Sushi Tei will be celebrating its 15th birthday this coming September. As part of the celebration, Sushi Tei will be giving back to the community. It has created a “Sushi Tei Anniversary Menu” with five menu items where 100% of net sales proceeds from the anniversary menu will be donated to charity. The adopted charities for Sushi Tei are Children’s Cancer Foundation (CCF) and Home Nursing Foundation (HNF). The proceeds will be split evenly and it hopes to raise S$150,000 for the adopted charities.
In addition to commemorating the organization’s anniversary, Sushi Tei will open a new restaurant at City Square Mall this September. Further expansion plans for this year include moving Sushi Tei’s very first
restaurant from its original location at Holland Village to a larger premise in the same vicinity. The new Holland Village restaurant will combine contemporary elegance and intimate ambiance with an expanded
alfresco dining area.
We have been on a Ramen frenzy for quite sometime. Li Xiang has blogged (with pictures) about the so called “best” 3 ramen in Singapore, namely the Marutama Ramen from Liang Court/The Central, Sapporo Ramen Miharu from Gallery Hotel and Ramen Santouka from The Central.
Been staying in school till 1am since last week, rushing my CS3216 project. I am gotten so sick of Facebook programming especially having to wait for 10 seconds for the page to load each time I changed something. I think Facebook should have some sort of “offline” Facebook, where we can deploy it on our localhost and test it first before uploading it to a live server.
On Friday, I stayed till about 1am in school, after school went to Li Xiang’s house for supper as she specially prepared the supper for me. After supper, she surprise me with a penguin sewing. I always call her penguin because last time she walked like one. She dare not touch raw meat at all, but after realizing that Bacon is a raw meat, it was kinda too late for anything to be done. LOL
Didn’t realize that McDonalds has a new breakfast item on the menu called McGriddles. It is basically a mashup between Sausage McMuffin with/without Egg and Hotcakes. Just imagine McGriddles as Sausage McMuffin but replace the Muffin with Hotcake. The bread is a little too sweet for my liking. At first my mom thought it is a double meat patty instead.
Sausage McGriddles Without Egg Meal – S$5.70
Sausage McGriddles With Egg Meal – S$5.90
After weeks and weeks of never ending tutorials, assignments and projects, Li Xiang and I decided to take a break and reward ourself with some good food. Tried Shokudo Japanese Food Bazaar which is located at Basement 1 of Raffles City. This $3-million Japanese Style Marche restaurant was opened by Thai Express Concepts, which also runs Thai Express chain, Xin Wang Hong Kong cafes and New York New York restaurants.
We went there at about 5.30pm and there was no queue, but after our dinner, the queue was as long as the TOTO queue for the Chinese New Year Hong Bao draw!
