I'm back folks!
Its a Sunday, and I feeling a bit of Monday Blues here. Boo!
Hope you guys aren't feeling this way,
because we shouldn't let this tiny bit of blues to spoil the remaining time of our previous weekend.
And why not let me share my BB-MM?
Which is a Bea's Breakfast for Motivational Monday. Hahahahahaha,
Let me share my own recipe for a breakfast I made last week!
I thought it looks yummy cuz of the strawberries,
and you can get this up within just minutes!
Its in fact very healthy food, (as recommended from my mother)
and its Strawberry Oat Meal with Flakes.
Apparently Oat is a very good source of fibre,
and girls, we should start eating it as meals because Oat helps dieting!
I researched and found this explanation for it…..
"Not only it is a delicious dish for breakfast,
it is also a dish that helps in reducing your hunger,
thereby helping you stick to your diet plan.
This is because the fiber in oats forms gels to fill up.
And it is these gels that delay the emptying of your stomach so that you don’t feel hungry quickly. "
Easy peasy, low cost and healthy,
you just need to get:
1. Instant Oatmeal from your usual NTUC, Cold Storage etc.
2. Whatever ingredients that you want to add into the oatmeal porridge.
To keep it as healthy as possible,
I added it my favourite strawberries
and also sweetened cornflakes to give it a slight sweet and crunchy taste!
My first time at MBS was actually attending Vel dear's 23rd Birthday at a HUGE SUITE!
It was absolutely awesome because there was a theme and everyone was extremely spontaneous about it.
Love themed parties and that's always the highlight of the gathering.
If you realised, the theme is MAFIAS and recalling the night,
I totally kudos to everyone for going all out for Vel.
Even Bryan too… this is hilarious.
Rach was asking Bryan to pose with me with the flowers on his hand,
and the black flower clip on his HAIR! :p
Look at how Mafia he went, (the tattoo stocking on the arm). Coolbeans.
Here's titus and lihui and….. fred's bag that i couldn't resist carrying it because it looks too unique.
The birthday specs!
Doing the Lovebonito poses! hahahaha
Here comes cake cutting session…
We had cups with our own names.
Uncle and Auntie was totally spontaneous too!
And we tried out the new camera of Rach!
Look at how it captures all of us.
Hope Vel had a blast that night,
and It was a fabulous party which i love every single bit of it!

I think I am kinda into TOGAS recently,
and unknowingly, I was browsing through my pictures and I was almost in different togas for different occasions.
But 3 words- I LOVE TOGAS!
White and black bandaged skirt which can be easily transformed into party outfit, or work outfit.
Just a blazer or cardigan on and you are perfect for work!
And my next favourite colour is actually RED.
My phone cover is red, room walls are red, and nails are red.
Try red it rocks! :p
Convertible dresses are also a favourite,
you can wear it in between lesser intervals and in many different kinds of way too!
i love the M-shaped black tube that comes with this piece,
Quality is definitely there, and off with some simple accessories and done!
If you were going to ask where did i get these lovely pieces,
these above 3 pieces are specially from The Design Closet!

Here's Taiwan Day 4, and this entry marks the end of Day 4 too.
We visited Dan Shui for the next half of the day.
This place is like the end of the MRT stations, (something like Jurong Station).
We were greeted with different kind of view,
more towards the nature side with the sea and all,
and guess what?! I heard JAY CHOU has a cafe there!
But we only found out after when we got back,
and didn't have a chance to try it.
Without knowing what's actually good there,
except for the famous YU SONG (fish crackers) and Tie Dan (Iron eggs).
Got a map and decided to check out dan shui lao jie.
Woo, i love this kinda streets in Taiwan,
whereby you find a lot of small carts here and there,
and sometimes chance upon real unique stuff.
This ice cream stall has certainly great business.
Looking at the queue, we had one each too.
But it was disappointing!
Its not rich and creamy as the colour looks,
but more of plain soft ice with minimal flavour.
Apple told me we should try it at Ximending though.
Try this is you by-pass the stall, its pink guava and extremely thirst quenching!
They have Naraya too, but well, for Naraya, there's only one place- BANGKOK!
Chilled ones are awesome!
A big bulldog.
Spent a while shopping here for accessories!
Wee? Singapore's delight is here?
But nah, i don't like durians!
It was drizzling and we went to seek shelter at this exquisite looking dessert shop.
They have limited choices,
and it seems like each and every piece is made specially.
We tried these two:
Banana Chocolate Cake which was simply delicious!
Each thin layer of chocolate crepe has real rich chocolatey taste!
And an ice-cream crepe!
The night came shortly after,
and feeding on all the fried food for days,
we figured out its time to have some fishball soup.
and oh gosh, if you are going to dan shui, please visit this shop! <3
Poots needs to get sour plum back for her mom,
and this owner offered to take a picture for us out of sudden,
and then we realised straight away- he's using tourists (us) for marketing!
Bought a cheap but really cute umbrella.
Love it to bits.
The night market.
And after a long day of walking,
Poots concussed while we trained back to our hotel.
Stay tuned for the last couple of days of Taiwan!
