Well, well, well... it's the time of the year again, or I should be saying, it's almost the end of the year! "OMG! Why so fast one?" Are you ready and excited to welcome a brand new year? It's 2018 soon and it's time for you to reflect on your 2017 resolution! Have you gotten a girlfriend/boyfriend? Married yet? Lost any weights? What about that sexy six pack ripped body that you have wished for? Hahaha... jokes aside, here's something good for those who's planning to celebrate new year's eve.

"Say what? Celebrate new year's eve in KL? Don't want lah..." I am sure a lot of you dislike going down to the city center to do your countdown task but this is somewhere less hectic but still as fun! Where about this secret location with less traffic congestion, affordable parking rates and great retail outlets?

Ah Boys to Men 4 (Movie Review)

Last week I managed to watch the newly released Ah Boys to Men 4 at the cinema. The first Ah Boys to Men was released five years ago and ever since then the movie director, Jack Neo has came up with another three movies within 5 years time. This movie was also released to commemorate the 50 years of National Service (NS50). I enjoyed the first and the third movie although it's not great but some of the scenes were quite funny and touching. So let's read until the end of the review to find out my thoughts on this one.


Plot:
The film focuses on the main characters who have to juggle between their work and their reservist duties. After leaving the military, Lobang, Wayang King, Sergeant Ong, and Ken Chow are all busy with their respective career as civilians. That's until they are called back to serve the nation again under the Singapore Armed Forces' Armoured Formation. Now they must juggle between work and their reservist duties. What hilarious situations will happen as they train together and their military roles are reversed? There'll be new enemy threats and their brotherhood will be put to the test.

Hoshino Coffee Malaysia @ The Boulevard, Mid Valley City

It was my friend's birthday month whom I've known through blogging for 7 years and we decided to have lunch at Mid Valley Megamall. We were supposed to head to the newly opened Hoshino Coffee but since it was lunch time on a weekday, the queue will take us about 30 minutes. So we decided to just settle down for lunch at Enoshima Japanese Restaurant & Bar. After the meal, we wanted to get some coffee and desserts so we tried our luck again at Hoshino Coffee and fortunately the queue took us less than 10 minutes.

From their website, they mentioned that "Hoshino Coffee is founded in 2011 in Japan. Hoshino Coffee is the culmination of the unique food menu created by Nippon Restaurant system who owns more than 30 dining brands and the distinctive quality coffee brought by Doutor Coffee, who runs the largest coffee chain in Japan and has more than 50 years history of coffee roasting".

The Florist That Made a Huge Difference in Singapore

Recently, I had a chance to experience and review A Better Florist, the best florist in Singapore. Right off the bat it was clear that their flower shops was different, and everything about their service was tailored to suit customers. It’s one huge step in the industry, since not a lot of flower shops tailor their service to suit the needs of customers in today’s day and age.

This flower delivery Singapore loves, has beautiful and fresh flowers available always. Every day of the year, no matter what day, season or holiday it is, you can rely on A Better Florist to give you the flowers you need. They have a selection of funeral flower Singapore often needs, besides the large collection of blooms that you can grab for anniversaries, birthdays, baby showers etc. Businesses can also rely on A Better Florist to provide grand opening flowers Singapore needs for big events, such as a grand opening flower stand. 


A Better Florist is the destination to go for flowers Singapore has never seen before. Their luxurious bouquets are affordable, and they are made so that every single bloom you buy makes you feel truly special.
