Disney's City Girl Life

A role playing game that follows a new girl in the city. Choose a career, work on skills and hang out with friends. Every week a new set of clothes and furniture appear for a limited time that you can win or buy. As you progress through the game, you can change apartments and even careers. High quality graphics and relatable objectives makes occasional playing enjoyable. My girl is now staying at Plaza Tower where her BFF's at.

Moschino A/W 2014/15

Everyone has seen it, everyone is talking about it. Moschino's quirky co-branded collection for Autumn/Winter 2014/2015 is here. Even my cousin has the McDonald's Fries phone cover from Moschino.

To it's credit, there are also Kellogg cereal, Hershey chocolate and microwave popcorn dinner gowns.

SpongeBob made an appearance...

Some denim & black quilt pieces to make up the numbers.

 Moschino Love collection centers around fairytales, in particular Snow White! The clothes are really young, sweet, innocent with enough graphic prints of Disney's snow white to please childhood fans of the movie.

Moschino Uomo (for guys) has a gold & cow theme. Need I say more?

Blitsy is a new US site that offers time-based sales similar to other sample sale sites. Only, they sell all sorts of crafts here instead of designer goods. I received $10 credit no restrictions and shipping to Singapore costs $9.95, so it's like free shipping for 1st time customers. Keep an eye out for the many promotional contests to win more store credit.

The deals are truly good. These Gold Petite Collection cross-stitches usually cost $15 to $20, it retails here for $8.99. Only thing is 1 of the kits didn't come with needles, but I have quite a few spare in the right size, so no problem. Regular shipping was also quite fast, less than 2 weeks to get my stuff.

Carousel @ Royal Plaza on Scotts

This place was voted best buffet in Singapore 5 years in a row and serves up a halal spread that you can bring your Muslim friends to as well. Every couple of months there is a special event and the last one was Authentic Hokkaido Hometown Favorites.

This is just the regular buffet that I am having tonight for dinner, it's an incredible variety of dishes. Some people like to choose their favorite dish and just have that. Me? I like to sample a little of everything and by the time I am done, I'll be stuffed. Doing the same here is a challenge that I had to spread out into 2 visits instead.

My favorite part of this buffet is the Mediterranean fare - stuffed vine leaves, olive tapenade, baba ghanoush, hummus, cheese stuffed peppers ... hhmm...

But, the waiter seated me near the local cooked food section. The pasta station is always crowded so I had the prepared plates instead that was unbelievably delish! Ravioli in crab infused broth, bbq roast meats, beef broth and indian briyani.

I mistakenly took frozen yogurt that is super sour coz it's part of the breakfast bar paired with muesli and cereal. The real ice-creams are next to these 3 chocolate fountains.

Free flow coffee and tea from the dispensers.

A murder mystery role-playing game that throws the title character into the suburbs where she inherits an old house from a suspected dead rockstar. Fulfill objectives by searching for stuff, talking to neighbors and carrying out tasks. You can develop your house as you wish and even dress up your character. I am at level 32 and the game seems to have halted as new storyline gets developed, can't wait for the new turn in events.

Roberto Cavalli A/W 2014/15

Roberto Cavalli has an absolutely beautiful collection this season that I think is inspired by China. The elements of Fire and Water are seen throughout the collection and the dresses have an interesting panel skirt that looks like traditional Chinese garb.

Including this kaftan that looks like a travelling blanket casually thrown over her.

True to form, Roberto Cavalli is always sleek and sexy, so we see deep v necks and tight pants.

Fur aside, I really love embroidered dresses and can't get enough of those patterned pants.

Just Cavalli carries more fun pieces, clothes are still colourful and patterns varied. However, there is a sophisticated delivery of dresses this season, making this collection something worth looking forward to in the stores.

Asia Pacific Food Expo 2014

Asia Pacific Food Expo @ Expo this Friday 21 Nov to Tuesday 25 Nov. Taiwan has Shihlin street market, we have our food expos. It's one giant street market indoors and air-conditioned. It just gets a little crowded that's all.

I do eat the food sold there. However, the main reason I make a trip there is for the wide variety of food products on display, all at reasonable prices.

Happy Family

This is an open-play game that follows a family through vacations, home-improvement projects, gardening and exotic pets. Random, time-based objectives appear as you play and you can decide if you want to take it up or not. I am at Level 35 and fully expanded, no more changes to the layout expected.

Gucci A/W 2014/15

Gucci womens wear borrows from the boys this season. The masculine style is re-intepreted into furs and waxy pastel colours for ladies.

Cocktail wear is more contemporary this season as well with lace & sparkles in short preppy dresses.

Gucci Menswear follows in the same colour direction with waxy pastels forming the base of its collection. The other part of the collection is just lots of solid, basic, black pieces.
