‘Rest In Peace’ or Rest & Relax … You Choose

I would like to share this good read.

The Lost Practice of Resting One Day Each Week
http://www.becomingminimalist.com/resting/

Ever since I came across this blog through a fb post, I subscribed to their email newsletter.

I believed we all knew what is rest, how not to complicate our life. But we always put this aside when something else came along and occupied our mind. Therefore we need such kind of push sometimes, someone to remind us, and I truely appreciated it. And I hope you get the ‘push’ too.

Enjoy reading … 😉

‘Rest In Peace’ or Rest & Relax … You Choose

小孩不笨 2

Story 1

Once upon a time, there was this 4 years+ old girl who was bathing with the help of her mum.

Her mum heard a cough from her and so she said: “See! I told you not to drink so much cold water right?!”
The little girl: “But you never give me hot water mah…”

O_o

Story 2

Once upon the same time, a couple was guiding their P1 son some assignments. They were asking him to read a problem sum and asked him how should he solve the problem.

His reply: “I must use my BRAIN to solve this problem…”

O_o

That’s the result of being told “use your brain… use your brain…” numerous time.

Let’s Get Real!

I always bypass this eatery as I took the escalator up to the level one everytime I came out from the mrt level. I never really find out what was it and what was the name of the cafe too as everything looks so simple inside. It was until one day, someone went and posted it on her facebook that I looked into what “Real Food” is.

Image

Ok, I’m not going into details of the cafe as their official website (http://realfoodgrocer.com/) is self-explanatory enough 😉

So finally I’m here and let’s see what we had for a start today.

Image
noticed the material used for cutlery holder?

NL and PL ordered Sonnentor Calming Tummy Tea (S$4.80) for soothing their stomach bloatedness they were having. While CW and me took Avocado + Coconut Smoothie (S$7.80). Tasted like pandan drink to me. Not bad, but would love a bit of hershey’s chocolate syrup for some chocolaty taste … something similar to what I had in Bali :p

Image

Mushroom Bruschetta (S$7.80) as one of the our sides. But omg! I think it can pass it off as a main course, I mean for myself. It’s crispy on the outside while flurry on the inside, and with mushrooms and melted cheese, it’s so fragrancy nice!

Image
Image

Chickpea and Sweet Potato Cakes (S$13.80) which is not a real cake but a salad dish. The cake tasted like some Indian spiced. Though not very strong spices taste but not to my liking.

Now to our mains…

Image

NL had her Kombu Shitake Soup (S$7.80) with choice of Udon (+S$1.50). It’s a very light tasted dish. Good for anyone who wants something light.

Image

PL ate Mushroom and Celery Tomato Penne (S$11.80). The pasta wasn’t well-cooked enough.

Image

CW and me had Rise-n-Shine Breakfast (S$9.80). A normal dish but we cleaned up the whole plate. Probably we were too hungry then 😛Image

We didn’t settle down for desserts here but headed off to O’coffee Club for their mub pie and more smoothie.

I will try more dishes at Real Food next time. 🙂

P/S: There is no service charge & gst is already included! 😉

Rainbow After Dry Spell!

This is what we called “Rainbow after rain”. Many places are showered with white and pink flowers after the recent dry spell.

Getting to know Trumpet Tree (Tabebuia rosea)

The Trumpet Tree grows up to 18-25m tall, and has a large, broadly conical and shady crown. The tree’s name comes from its large trumpet-shaped flowers, which range in colour from pink to white.

The fruits are elongated pods, which split open to released winged seeds. This tree is known for its impressive flowering display, where the entire tree is spectacularly covered in blossoms. This takes place in April and August, usually after a dry spell.

When they flowers fall, they retain their colour for a couple of days, forming a beautiful carpet of flowers around the tree.

I was stunned by the sight in front of me when the mrt passed by this area and I decided to make a trip down the next day via a bus ride that stop right at the International Business Park for some photo-shoots of the site.

This ‘lamb’ happened to be nicely seated under the Pink Trumpet Tree. It was gone when I made the trip back to the bus stop. It would be nice if a white bicycle was there instead. Quite a dreamy one I guess 😉

Image

I have never came to this area before and was a little stunned by the greenery here! With the blooming of the Trumpet Trees, it beautified the place even more.

Such bloomings were sighted at many parts of Singapore lately. I was a little late now and I guess I could only shoot more at other parts of the island in August. But then it would means dry spell in June and July? Kind of a dilemma huh! 😮
