Moving away from wordpress.com to a self-hosted site

Heya there all my beloved followers! I’ve been away from the blogosphere for awhile because I was in the process of transferring my domain to a self-hosted site. It means I will be able to customise and experiment more of my blog which is great right? However the sad part is all who followed me won’t be able to receive any of my future posts which sucks! I know. 😦

So  for all of my followers or to those who would like to follow me. Please subscribe again to my blog by visiting this link (look for the subscriber field to enter your email)

See you again soon! 🙂 xxx

Singapore Deli in Karama

After a long day of work we have decided to visit an old fave restaurant. In the buzzing place of Karama sits Singapore Deli that serves Asian dishes mainly, Indonesian and Malaysian. 

For starters we had Fried Tempe (Tofu). This was served hot with an amazing super spicy dip.  We considered ordering Sambal Tempe but decided to choose the former. According to my partner it’s the spiciest food he had ever tried.

I have ordered Fried chicken with Kangkong and steamed rice (very similar to Filipino food). There’s a small dip on the side which I’m not familiar with but it tasted like fermented something with chili on it. It has a strong flavor although it really compliments the dish. 

My partner ordered a Seafood Curry noodles. It has a light flavor just as what you have expected in a curry soup.

It’s nice to sit outside especially with the lovely weather we have now. Try it for yourself and share your experience! x

Yalla Momos in Karama

Fried Momos

After blogging so much about shops in Karama you probably are convinced that this place is a haven for foodies. So here’s a another treat for all the Dubaian’s out there.

Let me share to you this very cute Al fresco dining place of Yalla Momos. We have been a happy customer since they have opened ages ago and felt bad to do a review this late.

From the time they opened until they have renovated the place people can’t just get enough of their delicious momos!

Momo is a famous street food in Nepal and is widespread throughout India.  It’s similar to Chinese dumpling that has varieties of filling. You can get vegetable, cheese, chicken, beef, and mushroom momos.

I would like to thank Abby and Jai for their lovely treat. It’s their first time to try momos and they really enjoyed it! Abby actually have craving for it now.

There should always be Way-way noodles (careful it’s very spicy) on our order which is a perfect combination with Momos.

Click here to see their MENU.

Yalla Momos is located opposite Bikarnevala (4B Street) behind Park Regis Hotel.

Where to stay in Boracay |Dave’s Straw Hat

For a few minutes of walk from where we were dropped off, we then found Dave’s Straw Hat.

Beachfront Boracay Island Philippines

It was a quiet afternoon in Boracay when we arrived. The lady receptionist greeted us  without me first introducing myself (impressive). She already knew and assisted us to our room. She came back after 5 minutes handing us our “welcome drinks”. It’s a frozen lemon iced tea drink. Just perfect after the long journey!

I was very pleased with how it looked so much nicer than in the pictures. I chose the place because of the reasonable price and has been voted as Travelers’ Choice  in Tripadvisor. All the reviews are good so that makes me feel confident with my choice .

Our room is a standard type for 1,950  pesos per night. It has one double bed, TV, toilet and a box locker.

The best thing is that our sheets and towels are clean all the time. You don’t need to ask them they will just take care of it for you.

For our 6-day stay at Boracay we were very confident that our stuff is secure.

Dave’s Straw Hat’s location is perfect for people who seeks quiet and relaxing place away from the noisy area known as Station 1 and 2. It’s quite a long walk (15 mins)  to the center of Boracay where you see D’ Mall – but it’s a holiday so you’re suppose to be out and about right?

Tip: Make sure to book in advance to avoid disappointment.

I’ll surely stay on this place again if ever I’ll visit Boracay.
