♨ Wild Honey - Brunch , Scotts Square Singapore

It was a beautiful Saturday morning and we decided to pamper ourselves with nice brunch before a shopping day!
happy to find another nice brunch place here, near to Orchard Road

Wild Honey, Scotts Square, Orchard Road
(5-7min walk from Somerset MRT station)

we went there quite late in the afternoon
so it wasn't packed with people
apparently if you go earlier, you might need to wait for a seat

Inside of Wild Honey
and our Mocha to kick start our day!
well, Mocha was not bad, satisfying much.
But I wouldn't say it was the best ever though =P

They have quite a vast selection of food in their menu
mostly ranging around $20-40 dollars

English Breakfast ($25)
including pork sausages, bacon, baked beans,grilled tomato, brioche, potatoes...

It tasted like any typical english breakfast out there
not bad actually
and the bread was soft, "fluffy" and fragrant!

English Breakfast ($25)

and this is Caribbean ($20)
Coconut waffles with fresh passion fruit creme 
served together with baby bananas, mangoes 
& passion fruit syrup (thumbs up!)

I love the passion fruit syrup!
It was a filling breakfast meal 
the waffles were well done
and the mangoes and bananas were sweet!

Caribbean ($20)

Malindo Airlines Review

Today is my first experience of taking Malindo Air from KL - SG
Usually I take airasia / tiger airways as they offer cheaper fares
but this time around Malindo offered the cheapest fare
(KL - SG is their new route)
so I thought, why not give it a try

According to their website
they offer a few things which is not offered by other airlines
1. Extra legroom
2. In flight entertainment
3. On-board Wifi
4. Free Snacks
5. Free 15kg baggage allowance

and I'm actually quite excited to try out this plane

The plane is very new, you can feel it when you get seated
and the leg room was quite impressive.
As someone who is almost 175cm tall
will long huge legs
look how much more space I have for my leg!

In flight entertainment! (with USB ports)
various games, short drama, documenteries etc
makes my short 1 hour flight feels like 20minutes LOL
Touch screen quite sensitive also =)

and the on-board wifi & roaming is only for Boeing 737-900
which is not available in this plane

and free refreshments!
its simple but I'm contented enough haha!

 The only downfall is they don't have in flight magazines
which is one of my favey thing to do on a plane!

Well although a lot of the facilities provided are not available in this flight to sg
but consider the price that they offered
I really think it is worth it
and a lot more comfortable
the take off and landing were smooth
at least no loud weird engine noises LOL
(you know what I mean if you experienced one before)

Will definitely fly with Malindo again in the future!

♨ Magnum Cafe, Mid Valley KL

After almost 2 weeks from the day of opening
I decided to join the hype
But, on a wonderful monday afternoon, very odd hours
the queue was still quite remarkable. LOL.

We waited almost 15min to get into the cafe
then probably another +/-15min to get our orders done
Tips : ask one of your friend to CHOP a seat first whenever you see one
if not you will have to sit outside / stand while you indulge yourself in magnumland!

The queue from inside starts here
it basically goes one circle before you can place your orders

So for self-crafted magnum icecream
it is RM9.90 (fixed price)
you get to choose either a chocolate or vanilla ice cream
one coating
and 3 toppings
I actually asked whether we can go for 4 or 5 toppings
and the cashier said after 3 toppings, you need to buy another ice cream =P

They have wide selection of toppings
some are for more adventurous customers
eg : chilli as topping LOL
(yet to try it!)

The toppings selection counter

White, Milk or Dark choc to coat your Magnum

Pour your selected toppings onto the ice cream
 and tada! 
here's my ice cream
chocolate magnum coated with milk chocolate
topped with
1. pretzels
2. popcorns
3. rose petals

I personally think the rose petals gave the ice cream quite a unique taste
just that you probably get rose petals stuck in between (all over) your teeth LOL

and my friend's
vanilla ice cream with milk chocolate coating
topped with 
1. potato chips
2. oreos
3. chocolate balls

tried both of these and I think the white one is much better
(not as sweet as chocolate)
my choc one was a bit too sweet, and too overwhelming =P

of course, they have other menu as well
quite interesting also
maybe I will go back and try!
