Something New

[Food Review]

Hi. Its been a long time since I did a food review. This time round its a brand/restaurant that everyone is familiar with. McDonald's.

Ever since I was a kid I ♥ McDonald's that I had their chicken McNuggets almost every single day. As I grew older, I tend to like something with more flavor such as McSpicy. I still remembered clearly that McDonald's used to sell something like Nasi Lemak which costs only $3++ or so. Many don't remember but that product had been stuck to my mind since childhood. Sadly they removed that product from their menu already. So when I was asked to do a review on McDonald's latest promotional product, I quickly agreed to it.

INTRODUCING

McDonald's latest creations.
- Beef Clubhouse Burger
- Chicken Clubhouse Burger
- Truffle Flavored Shaker Fries
- Red Velvet Mcflurry with Oreo Cookie Bits

Moving on to the review. Many people had pretty high expectations for their new product, but for me, I feel that its better to expect less so that the disappointment won't be that much.

Red Velvet Mcflurry
To be honest, it tastes pretty much like the original Mcflurry, and it costs much more. So yeap.

Beef/Chicken Clubhouse Burgers
I love the fact that McDonald's keep adding different things to their current product so kudos for that. For their new clubhouse burgers, they added Bacon and Melted Cheese on top of the usual lettuce and tomatoes. A little something different compared to the other burgers on their menu.

Truffle Flavored Shaker Fries
Well, this was the one that got many people talking about it. The smell was good but it tastes like Garlic/Onion Maggie Powder. Many of my friends have commented that its VERY BAD!!! True enough. But what do you expect something that comes out from a pack of sachet????!!!!

I guess I ran out of titles to put for my blog posts already?!?!? Haha. So anyways, one of the weekend last week, I went out to meet Garey and ML for supper. Sort of??? Cuz Garey just finished his field camp last week and... I can't believe I'm saying this but I'm actually keen to know more about it and his experience during field camp. Hahah. Cuz if you guys don't know, I'm gonna be having my outfield soon, well, next week to be exact. So I'm having mixed feelings about it. Apart of me is excited about it and another is just dreading it. Its like going out in the jungle/forest and not bathing for 6 days?!?!?!?! I don't know how am I gonna survive man!!!

Before meeting up with Garey, I went to town to run some errand. Got something for my dad and bought a new handphone cover for my 5s. Aforementioned, after a long consideration, I finally decided to put a tempered glass protector on my phone. Its like giving my 5s a MAKEOVERRRRR!!!

Had a really sinful meal that day. When I met up with Garey we had KFC for dinner, and after that MingLong came to meet us after his wedding thing ended. Most of the shops were closed and we had no choice but to head to McDonald's cuz we had no other alternatives. #FATDIEME!!!

Not forget to mention that I bought the EXTRA LARGE coke?!?!?!?!

And here's a random flatlay which I took. Nowadays I'm more and more into simple and minimalistic stuff. Things that are in black, white, gold and silver. Gone were the days where I liked prints and bold colors. Sighhhh! Signs of growing old. :(((

Week 14

Hi there. It has been awhile already isn't it? On and off, I'll miss writing on this space here, but the thought of editing the photos and everything just puts me off a lil. But heck, thanks to the public holiday, I'm having another long weekend before the next book in. YAY!

Now I'm already 3/4 through my BMT phase and to be honest, I'm having mixed feelings. I'm not sure if I'm ready for the next phase after my BMT, going into unit and having to start in a brand new environment again...But then again, I just want to faster get the hell out of Pulau Tekong. LOL!

So anyways, enough of my army stuff. this weekend, I celebrated MingLong and Grace's birthday. Since I'm in camp during weekdays, poor Keekhim had to do most of the planning and stuff. Hahaha.

An impromptu decision to have dinner at Marché cuz 3 out of 4 of us haven't really tried Marché before. So yeap.

Once you go into the restaurant, you'll be given a card where it acts as a "credit" card. Just go around and order what you want and the amount will be debited into the card, and when you're done eating, you just have to give the cashier the card and the amount will be shown at the cash register.

There are quite a lot of variety of food there, ranging from Rösti to Pizza, to Roast Chicken and many other. Our idea is to order a few and share so that we all get to try each of the food there. To our surprise, we thought we ordered too little but ended up we had difficulty finishing our food. Hahah!

After we're all about done eating, I told them I'm gonna head to the washroom, but later did they expect that I'm coming back with a cake on my hand. Both Ming Long and Grace were surprised, cuz they didn't really expect to have a 6 inch cake presented to them. Cuz well, all these while we've been celebrating our birthdays with small cakes. HAHAHAHA!!!

P/S: I'm sorry (but I'm actually not), I really want to highlight to them that they're 24 this year!!!! LOLOLOLOL!!!

After which, we left Marché and walked around town a little bit. Ate the cake and talk about life a little too. Took a group photo and realized how much all of them didn't really change much except for yours truly. HAHAHAHAHA!!!

Hi there, as you can see from the title, I got myself a new toy. Well not exactly I, its more of my Dad ♥. We were shopping around AMK Hub and I told him I wanna take a look at the Olympus 17mm f.18 lens, and after much looking he asked if I wanted it and voila!

But anyways, I intend to return him the money after I got my pay so yeah. I can't wait to test out this lens when I'm outta my house the next few weeks. Hahah.

Met up with BBF - Qianyi after so many years.... One day we were chatting on whatsapp and we finally agreed to meet up for goodness sake. Qianyi was the one that planned the day like where to have brunch and etc. After much consideration, we settled on Kombi Rocks. Which is situated at Serangoon area.

Unlike any other cafe's you see in Singapore, Kombi Rocks is a Diner which brings you a mixture of Western and Chinese food. Don't expect to see your typical truffle fries in the menu, instead they offer Nachos Cheese Fries W/ Minced Meat, Mee Goreng, and many other local delicacies.

The ambiance is rather old school/retro filled with analog clocks, old school vehicles and etc. They even give you free collectibles when you spend a certain amount there.

Right beside the diners there's this garage looking place where they have many different cars parked there. We saw quite a number of people going there taking pictures with it.
