Be grateful for the home you have, knowing that at this moment, all you have is all you need

So it was mommy's birthday on Saturday! Our pillar of strength who nurtured us to what we have become today.
My mom, is also like my friend whom I can talk to about everything under the sun. I am truly grateful for her, wouldn't trade her for anything else in the world. 

So the sisters made reservations for lunch at Yu Cuisine at Mbs ;)




The complimentary longevity peach aka shou tao was really good because the fillings was custard instead of the usual lotus paste. 
Just like liushabao, so yummy! 

My ootd was Equinox Cropped Top with Sans Embossed Skirt which some mistook as a dress! 
Love how this combination complements each other so well ;) 

And the embossed can finally be seen in this pic I took before heading out! 
Received some emails asking if it's very shiny, not to worry it's just a tad sheen on the embossed area :) 

Flowers from the boys! 

Love you Mona Lisa!!


The day before was a celebration with all her favourite kids;
And because my mom is such a mahjong fanatic...

Mahjong jellyheart cake!


Navibot from all of them!

Kudos to Ree and Char for lugging this present all the way by themselves! 



Brunch at Strangers' Reunion before the Ktv;
The mains were pretty mediocre, taste just like any other brunch places i've been to..

But the truffle fries was one of the best I have had in awhile!

Buttermilk waffles, the must order when you're at Strangers' Reunion

And here's what i wore, Blyth Knit in pink and the worn to death bottom from Zara! 
If you saw my ig, pink is a colour I usually avoid but this piece was too pretty to miss. 
I actually told Lu I wanna chop this piece once we receive the stocks :) 

Lastly, here's Middleton dress perfect for the OLs! 

See you at our launch at 830pm (www.ohvola.com)
Till then...

Of happy occasions

These 2 weeks have all been about celebrating birthdays for the libra babies which means I get to dress up a little more than usual!
I'm also really glad that our designs with better quality and fabric used are finally in by batches.
We will be launching on a more regular basis now, so keep a lookout for us!
Expect more gorgeous pieces like maxis and embellished dresses that's suitable for year end events:)

Here's what I wore to Chanel's birthday last week, black on black
Cut in Kara cropped top with lace details at the side :)


Bruno's Pizzeria & Grill. 
338 Tanjong Katong Road
64404525
One of the best Italian restaurants I have been to so far! Though their service can be abit slow, it's definitely worth the wait.
It's a very small and homely restaurant which means it's usually fully housed so do remember to make reservations! 
We started off with some appetizers to share! The Foie Gras were pan seared to perfection! Even Cheng who doesn't enjoy foie gras thought it was good too! The escargots were also really yummy.


I always knew wood-fired pizzas never go wrong, so here's my parma ham and shaved parmesan  pizza! 

The rest of the mains that were worth mentioning, Linguine with scallops in white wine sauce, Braised lamb shanks with risotto, Grilled beef tenderloin, Pan-fried chicken breast with melted mozzarella and Spaghetti vongole with very generous servings of clams.

My big-eyed girlfriends, Geraldine & Char ;)

To Sauce @Esplanade for some beer before heading to party!

2 dozens of KrispyKreme as Chanel's birthday cake!
Kudos to Dennis & Mitch for queueing on the first day of KK's opening! 
I was craving for it for the longest time, so I had to eat 2 of it :p

 
Happy birthday @Chanellameow ;)


This Sheila and Ree took tons of unglam selfies on my camera so I guess it's fine for me to post one up? Hah

The best friend looking awesome in our Carbry Knit top which she bought in 2 colours :D


Arteastiq for Rainee and Mitch's birthday!
333A Orchard Road  #04-14/15 Mandarin Gallery, Singapore 238867

Sunday was brunch at Arteastiq. It was my first time there despite hearing so much about this place.
We were all supposed to head for some art jamming after our meal but Rainee had some urgent matters to attend to so we dropped the idea and went shopping instead!


 First blush, $15.80 Pancakes generously topped with scrambled eggs, salmon & chessy roasted tomato.
All my favourite things together!

 Their poached eggs were overcooked..


 Happy birthday @Mitchthehottie ;)

 Wearing an upcoming beaded and embellished chiffon top and embossed printed skirt that my camera can't seem to capture.
It's mad pretty irl!

And on the laid back public holiday, I wore this Deevine Playsuit to a birthday chalet.
Love how comfy this piece is, and the digital-like print is definitely a plus point for this casual playsuit!

And on a day to run errands, I wore this minimalist design with a peekaboo waist detail.
All sold in black so get yours in white here ;)


 
Wore Kara Cropped Top in white to explore Pasarbella for the first time! 
Darkened and sharpened the close up of the top so the details can be seen :)

''PasarBella, home to Singapore’s largest community of traders and merchants. Here, you’ll find fresh produce, niche food products and craft retailers in the midst of unique personal service providers and homely eateries.''

 This foodie couple who brought us from Sengkang all the way to Turf city!

  Love the fresh concept of Pasarbella! 
It's a place for you to chill and relax your day away in the 'out of sg' environment. 

And weekend night out with the homies, bad move to be in knit that day because we had Mookata for dinner!
 Wore the asymmetric Meredith knit top with my worn to death leather shorts from F21. 
Trying to channel a rocker look!
 
Tom Yum Kungfu
16 Circular Road
65361646 
My favourite place for Mookata has got to be Tomyum Kungfu, wins the one in kovan and golden mile hands down! 
  It's $39 for a set to be shared among 2-3pax so we ordered x2 of it! 

Must order: Maggie mee so that you can add the seasoning into the soup base for an extra yummy tom yum taste!! 

Prawn cakes were good as well ! 

Of course, reservations are a must since it's always fully packed when I'm there!  


Alright, back to work! Thankq for dropping by ;)
Till then..
