Gregory Sungem + Source 1.5L clear hydration bladder - My first Hydration pack

Today, pass by bugis area and wantet suggested to go check out the Campers Corner again. I was trying to look for a hydration bag for my trail run training and the race as well. Currently in my mind was the NorthFace, Salomon S-lab etc. But both are quite pricey.
Came across gregory sungem from Campers Corner and find it fulfil the requirement I want. I need a bag which allowed me to put some light weight clothing (jacket and cap) and the hydration about 1 - 2 L. The Sungem cost me sGD 148 (but paying with POSB everyday cards can get about 5% discount). The only thing is, the bag did not came with bladder. Where you got to find your own water bag and I got mine from Outdorr Life. The 1.5L from Source which cost me SGD51.
Total cost = 125.80 (after the POSB dollar rebate) + SGD51 = SGD 176.80.
(*Northface hydration bladder for female cost SGD176. 10% discount from running lab if pay by citibank credit card).
(*Salomon S-lab, more than SGD200).

Cant wait to test out the bag during my next run on Christmas day.

3 inch sin at Millenia Walk

3 inch sin at Millenia walkToday after the heavy steamboat lunch, we decided to walk all the way to Suntec then from Suntec to Millinia walk. Come across a place with a board showing 'serving Papa Palheta' coffee and that make me decided to walk in and have a coffee topup. The store name is '3.Inch.Sin'. The cafe is selling chocleate cakes as their main business but they do have the coffee tasting as well with the daily use bean showing on the glass board in the store. Nice place to hang out as its not crowded and the coffee is much better than the one serving in starbuck. I ordered the cappuccino which cost me SGD4.90, which for me, its value the money.
Check out the cakes they are selling here.  I was too full and have not tasted the cake yet but 9 out of 10 customers who visit the place buying their cakes instead of coffee. (well, that point of time, seems like only me who ordered the coffee). Maybe next time, I will revisit the place and try out the chocolate cake.
Address: Millenia Walk, Unit 01-103, Raffles Boulevard, Tel: 6333 4562, Operation time: 11.30pm - 9.30pm daily.

Food from Old woodlands foodcourt - Anns Choice

 Due to work, I always went to Old Woodlands FoodCourt for my lunch. Mainly because the food taste better than my company cafeteria and you still able to find fruit juice with just SGD 1.50 or lunch under SGD3. 
But now, I just want to share with others one of the stalls. Anns Choice. They are selling rice with some local home cooking such as 'Pigs Belly Soup' (猪肚汤), Sesame Oil Chicken (麻油鸡), Pigs soup (猪杂汤) and etc. I tried both the pigs belly soup (SGD 4.50) and Sesame Oil Chicken (SGD4.00). The price shows in the board not including rice. So for the rice additional SGD 0.50. The nice thing is, with SGD0.50, you have  mixed rice (with vege and garlic) and the rice taste really nice.
I like the sesame oil chicken more compare to the Pigs belly soup as I prefer the pigs belly soup with strong pepper smells but the serving from this stalls have just mild pepper taste. Maybe to cater for audience as not everyone like the strong pepper taste in the soup especially under a humid and hot weather like here Singapore. Talk about the sesame oil chicken, it taste better than the look. But I found it a bit expensive as the portion is consider small. For guys who eat a lot, maybe you can get other cheaper and more tummy satisfying food at the foodcourt.  
Location: the foodcourt is just less than 5 mins walk from the Woodlands Singapore Checkpoint. You just need to cross the stop light and walk straight, once you see the KFC and posb ATM machine, take the staircase on the right, the foodcourt is just on top of them.
Enjoy Makan!!!

Melaka Trip - What to see in Melaka - Weekend getaway from Singapore

Art at MelakaMelaka had been listed as a Heritage place on 7 July 2008. So what you can expect to see in Melaka? Here I would like to share some photos with all of you. The building with full of painting not only along Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lok where most of the cafe and guest house located but along the river side as well. After lunch / dinner walk along the river side will give you some surprise if you like the wall painting. You even can take the boat tour along the river. But I would suggest you to take the boat tour during late evening where you can enjoy the sunset at some part of the river as well.
