Cafe hunt: Non Entrée Dessert Cafe

 Yeah, Great, Exam Has Ended and its time to celebrate for the stress and tears I had for my exam. So I and my friends decided to do some Dessert shop shopping and we came across a shop name: Non-Entrée Dessert Cafe sound like a classic European dessert, pastries, and Gelato ice cream dessert Cafe in Europe, nope but it's actually in Singapore.  We found this dessert cafe located on Rangoon Road (nearest MRT Farrer Park) which required a 5 minutes’ walk from the MRT station to the café. There are many cafe located near there like old hen coffee bar and cold pantry are also near the Non Entrée Dessert Cafe.






 This is the cute , yellowish and small-ish but vibrant cafe (Non-Entrée Dessert Cafe) 





The Cafe has a unique environment both inside and outside, where there is a sense of Classic Fine Dinner of Food when you are inside the Cafe. 

*Look at that interior design of the cafe haha :) That chandelier swinging around the cafe haha jk

Time to order some dessert :)
We order 4 different type of dessert :
The Rubber Ducky, Chocolate Avalanche ,Matcha Avalanche , Cherry Pop

The Rubber Ducky [$12.90]
Creme lemon infuse with mango pudding with fresh mango puree , sago and biscuit at the bottom
*A die for to try :)

 Cherry Pop [$13.90] 
It's in a form of a sphere inside is filled with earl grey jelly, marinated in cherry compote , spicy sorbet and cherry with Bols kirsch in it.
*If you are a cocktail lover, you should try it
 Chocolate Avalanche [$13.90] 
It's a avalanche when you cut open the cake and you mix with the orange-infused ice cream at the bottom. When you cut the cake, the dense chocolate lave would flow out and dip down.
*It's a very unique taste for this
 Matcha Avalanche [$13.90] 
Its one of the newest dessert flavor that they introduced in their cafe for all the matcha fans. There will be hot flowing matcha green tea lava with azuki beans flowing to the green tea gelato.
*It's a irresistible taste for those matcha fans
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Overall, this is a wonderful cafe hunting trip as this cafe is one of a kind due to their dessert and this is a great place for instagrammable shots for your dessert. There are still love of different variety of dessert to be try out but i decided to list out the once are worth of your money.

Hear from the Cafe Owner that they would be coming out with new desserts in the future.       (Coming Soon)

It's a COCONUT day


Here in Singapore , at the hearts of the central Business District area near the Marina Bay Sand , DBS did manage to create the urban pop-up beach to showcase many different types of activities. 

Have you thought that you can actually host a real beach lifestyle anywhere as long as you have the capital and the space to host a beach event? 


Yup DBS held the event known as DBS Marina Regatta 2016 during the weekend of 28-29 May and 4-5 June , Open from 11am to 10pm plus it was a Free admission to the public where you can catch live Dragon Boat races and also your can shop and eat while watching the race.

There's this southeast Asia's tallest inflatable water slide which can go up to 5 stories and you would slide down till the finishing line. So I decided to try sliding from the 5th story , but before sliding down there's a nice view of Singapore where I can see Marina Bay Sand , esplanade, and the floating platform at the Marina bay area. I had a bit of fear before sliding and Isc was deciding should I go down? But I decided to go with my guts and I slide down and with a bit of scream here and there while I was sliding down. HAHAHAHA *Don't judge me okay

Yes during that day, was a really hot day and I was sweating like a dog but what kept me going to try out many other activities was Vita CoCo , a natural coconut water while kept me hydrated naturally after drinking it :)  Yeah, you would be thinking where did I get this Coconut Water from?

Yup , I got it from here :)
 
Yup Vita Coco was one of the sponsors for the event and was also invited to DBS regatte while me trying out the different type of activities while sweating yet keeping myself hydrated with Vita Coco on the go.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
What's Inside Vita CoCo?

Natural Coconut water plus Vitamin C and it's never from concentrate coconut water 

There is present of Vita Vitals after drinking it :)

Naturally coconuts are packed with natural electrolytes which contain more potassium than Banana 
HAHA. That's why I kept trying out different type of activities while drinking Vita Coco which helps to keep body properly hydrated :) 

Vita Coco production process >.< 

They are processed in this 3 Simple Steps :

1. Pick 
2. Crack 
3. Pack 

So simple Right? HAHA, this coconut water is being kept in a tetra pack which provides a stable shell life for the coconut (No refrigeration is needed actually) 
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Beside Vita Coco water  , there's actually Vita CoCo Coconut Oil 
Eat it . Wear it . Swear by it

Yup you heard it right 
You can actually Eat it , Wear it and that swear by it. 
This is one coconut oil that can multitasker into many different jobs.

Eat it (Using it in the kitchen)
You can choose to Stir it with your dish , Bake Cookie with it , Fry it or spread it on your bread :) 
Coconut oil is always great in many different types of recipes 
*Anything Butter can do , coconut oil also can do better 

Wear it (Using it in the bathroom)
You can actually apply in on your face. To get that Extra Natural Glow >.< 
For this, I use this for my after shave as it discourages breakouts from shaving.

What's actually inside?
Nothing but Organic 
Extra Virgin Coconut oil 

*It's Really a must to try and it's worth your money 
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A fool to the 19 star

Oh, Great finally I'm 19, oh god I'm feeling so old already -_-
Anyway happy belated birthday to me and happy birthday to the march and April babies 


Hmm have you ever thought of getting a birthday cake without going down to the bakery and also try shopping for a birthday cake like shopping for clothes online? Now with MerryMakr, you would be able to shop online for cakes or anything without leaving your house, just shop online like any other online shopping. And what makes MerryMakr different from any other online shopping is that the search would customize according to your event or to your needs.



Currently shopping for cakes Hehe, too many choices to choose -_-

Besides shopping for cakes ,  recently there is a beach party organized by Play event Singapore, held at Wave-House Singapore at Sentosa Siloso Beach on the 25th of March. Wave House is Singapore , the only place in Singapore where you can Surf like a pro with man-made wave that is similar to the wave in the open sea. This time, the theme is Beach Ball 3 , which made is beach event where people would turn up in beach attire and even go topless if you are running low on budget haha *Just Kidding* Singapore is a bit too hot so going topless is fine.

Hmm me and few of my friends decided to get the early bird ticket which is generally cheaper than the normal ticket and also buying online using MerryMakr was very convenience and trouble free unlike the olden time where we have to queue with cash in our wallet and wait for the ticket supplier to open his store and starts the sales of the ticket. Now with Merrymakr you can just lay on the bed and open up your internet browser and look upon the event that you are going and also, you can just pay using Credit Card unlike like old time where we have to withdraw from the ATM (Automated Teller Machine) and have to queue and wait for your turn to withdraw out the amount then queue again when buying the ticket from the seller.

After adding the ticket to my Cart, it's time to check out. MerryMakr Checkout  is very simple , as you register with them you would need to key in your address and your credit card details. Therefore during the express checkout, your details would be remembered and you just need to select the credit card you like to pay with and just click out.

A taste of one tradition master.

 Hmmmmm, I always remember that when I was young dated back to 2000. My grandparent would always bring my out to a coffeehouse in Singapore and they would always order tradition bread toast with kaya ( Coconut egg jam) with butter it goes well with two hard boiled egg and a warm cup of Teh (Milk Tea). Then they would  dip my toast bread into the Teh as I would enjoy the taste as it brings out the fragrance of the Kaya and butter Toast bread but nowadays I hardly have time to turn back time to 2000 where I can enjoy the slow pace time where I enjoy my traditional breakfast with my grandparent.

But Recently I found a place that brings back the same old taste and feeling of the traditional breakfast and with my favourite drink Teh. And this place is located on the West side of  Singapore where my grandparent house uses to be and this shop has also a history can be traced back to the 1950S which offer lot's of local-styled breakfast which has my favourite drink Tea and with my favourite Toasted bread fill with kaya and butter and I would dip into my favourite old time drink. 

This old time favourite Coffeehouse is known as Heavenly Wang and this coffeehouse I visited is located in the heart of the west side (Jurong) 
Yeap, this is the New face of Jurong (*The Next Orchard) 
and this Coffeehouse (Heavenly Wang) is located in the heart of the healthcare 

(Ng Teng Fong Hospital) Level 1

A  brief Introduction of Wang and Heavenly Wang
Wang is a local Cafe that can be traced back to the 1950s and the cafe is used to be housed along Bugis Street in Singapore and they served local-styled traditional breakfast favourites.Wang served one of the best brews of kopi (Coffee), with a fragrant brown toasted bread with the Signature Wang Kaya Spread and with a nicely soft-boiled eggs which goes well with a dip of your bread in it. As for Heavenly Wang, they also serve the same local delights as Wang with some traditional confectionary which goes well with your beverages. Heavenly Wang also offers traditional brew Kopi, so any kopi lover and sit back and take a good taste and enjoy over good halal food.

Come Join me now to Experience a Taste of One tradition Master

So I decided to do a write up of this coffeehouse, after my few visit to Heavenly Wang as this place really bring back old memories of my childhood time with my grandparents when I visited them and also Jurong would be the Next Orchard So it's time to bring our the good food and cafe to Visit if you visit the West side of Singapore.

*This is Heavenly Wang, Their interior design of this cafe truly looks like the Old School Coffeehouse in the 90's with the old school gate, Biscuit Tin, Marble Table and Wooden stool and Guess what bring out the feeling? It's their food and drinks as it's prepared in a traditional way.

When you first walked into Heavenly Wang, the smell of the food & beverage fragrance that they are brewing freshly out from their kitchen and serving it hot to the customer. So as I walked into Heavenly Wang, I was greeted by the Outlet Manager (Jonathan) and he guided me to my seat which he reserved for the review to be taken place. Their design of the place of the seats is like the olden days Coffeehouse but with the twist of the modern design and the lighting of the Sofa, area brings out the great old feeling of the traditional light where we use old metal lamp and yellow light bulb which dated  back to the 90S.


*Love the feeling of this place as it makes your feel that time passes slowly while you enjoy that Hot Cup of fresh brew coffee and hot steaming Half Boiled egg with the Crispy toasted bread.

After settling down with all the equipment prepared for the photo taking and the props, it's time to get the review started but before the review takes place we need our main actor which is the Food and beverages which bring out the great old time. 

So our actors for today review would be Teh ( Milk Tea) - Can be served in Hot or Cold

Why Teh? What's Teh?

Teh is known as Milk Tea, where the tea leave is being brew with Hot water and filters out to extract the Hot steaming Tea and with the Mix of Two different type condensed milk. And the finally Served Hot right in Front of you. This Teh (Milk Tea) from Heavenly Wang brings back the good old memory of my childhood time with my grandparents, I use to have sweet tooth and my grandmother would just to custom special order my tea to suit my craving for tea as I don't like the taste of bitterness, therefore, she would always ask the Brewer to add more milk to cover the taste of bitterness and I would always tend to dip my toasted bread into the Teh as it brings out the sweetness of the Kaya and Butter Bread. 

Our next actress is Kaya & Butter Toasted Bread

What's Kaya & Butter Toasted Bread? Why so special?
Kaya & Butter Toasted Bread is also known as (Coconut Egg Jam) with a thin slice of Butter in a crispy toasted bread served fresh and hot out from the Oven. The bread would be cut into half where you get to see a slice of butter inside and best before you eat is to dip into any hot beverages you have and it brings out the nice sweet combination taste between the beverage and the toasted bread.

-Here at Heavenly Wang, their bread are served in brown sliced and the bread goes through a traditional way of toasted over hot grills which give out the crispy sound when you bite and a nice fragrance from the bread itself. And also, you can choose a wide variety of flavour you like your bread to be done but I  myself prefer the Wang Signature Kaya spread.

Our next Main actor is Mee Rebus 

 Mee Rebus 
*Even Sally is trying out the food tasting 

Heavenly Wang is better known for their Mee Siam, but they make a good Mee Rebus as well. Though not as meaty or robust but Heavenly Wang gravy is sufficiently rich and flavorful with a pleasing of sweet-spicy balance. The Slightly translucent gravy clings nicely to the yellow noodles. It's tasty but feels light and smooth all at once and garnished with garnished with tao po, boiled egg, Chinese celery, green chilli, and fried shallot. A squeeze of fresh lime would add up a special taste and brightens up the dish.
Our Last Main Actor is Laksa

What's Laksa? What is he Fishing for?

Paul today is fishing at his new spot at Heavenly Wang. Paul said today his goal is to catch a fish in this spicy soup stock the colour of a flaming sunset, flavoured with coconut milk, curry and dried shrimp, and topping with Tofu, fish cake and egg. But when he was fishing, the thick vermicelli in the soup has tangled up with his fishing rod and this vermicelli is easy to be break apart can be easily slurped up with a spoon. His catch for today was only some vermicelli and a half-boiled Egg *

Full Review of Wang
It was a great experience to review on Heavenly Wang. Their food and drinks would always bring back old time memory where time passes slowly and enjoying every bite with your love ones. 

*They have outlet in the west

 This Stay-cation has a bit of a twist.
Few question you guys would be wondering: Hmmm so why would I want a staycation in Singapore? Why do I choose this hotel? What's in the hotel? How is my stay like with Park royal?
Yeah, all of your questions will be answered with some twist and experience I had with this Awesome Hotel in Singapore.

Ring it's already 9 am and I woke up with my alarm song by Adele (HELLO) HAHAHA so I wash up, changed into my daily wear and soon it's already 10 am. So I packed my mini luggage and move out from home and to the hotel at Clarke Quay. As soon as I got on the car it's already 1030 am and-and my brain alarm clock buzz off as I remembered that I had a booking for my spa treatment by St. Gregory - (The hotel spa), I book their Indonesian Balinese Massage which lasted for 60 min. The main treatment of this massage is to focus on the deep tissue of our body and help to release my soreness of my muscles which the day before I stand for the entire day. Hiazzzzzz * I slept during the massage haha, soon after the massage was a hot tub bath with salt water and took a peak on my phone it's already 12.30 pm which mean time to check-in to the hotel. Okay, let's rewind time to happen before going to the massage when I alight from my car the bell man was so kind he helped me by opening the car door and with my minication luggage I brought. So he brought me to the counter and ask if I can put my luggage here first while I go for my mini treatment then I checked in and they were delighted and said: yeah sure, just put your luggage here first and enjoy the spa massage. So after my massage, it's already 12.30 pm I changed and when down and proceed with my check in. When I was at the counter I was greeted by this lady in her mid 20 and she said: Good afternoon, asked for the payment details and also get my room prepared. She was so kind, she asked me to take a seat and asked if I would like to have any drinks.
While I sit down and enjoy that ice cold lemonade, they were preparing my details and preparing my room. After a few minute, the room was prepared and I was handed the room key to my room and they got someone to help with my minication luggage and guided me to my room. * By the room the room I managed to get was a Junior suite and I requested for something special and they really got me by surprise when I opened my Room door*
The Junior Suite really surprised me with a great view of the park view and the room itself come with a very spacious suite with its both lounge area and bedroom that are separated and also, the bedroom is really a to die for. Cause the bathroom  is so luxurious as the mirror is like a make up mirror and also the why to shower has many different type of option like a separate shower stall and bathtub HAHA, as well as refreshing bath amenities *Their soap is really a must to try , I had to keep calling room service for more soap cause I have been using it for my bath tub soaking with the foam.

So after my soaking in the bath tub was time to invite my classmate over for a Class farewell party as wee all will be graduating soon in 2 month time. So the twist to this stay-cation was a farewell party to my class. About 3.30 pm a few already, reach the hotel lobby and I kind of accidentally took a short nap and ignore their call and messages. HAHAHA I swear the bed is damned good plus with that park view I fall into a short nap.  After bringing the guest up, we all changed into our swimwear and prepare for a swim at their outdoor infinity pool at Level 5 with the great view of Singapore. Besides swimming at the infinity pool, the hotel has offered this small little cute smurf house name cabanas which you can choose to take a short rest and enjoy the  spectacular views of Singapore city skyline and the artwork of the little and tall building in the landscape.
video
*This is video of the pool with great view of Singapore

After our swim was time to wash up and start preparing the room for my rest of my classmate and guest for the farewell party. So had to prepare food and drinks, so we when hunting for great food around City hall, Chinatown, and Clarke Quay but we end up buying fast food -_- cause all the great food around us are not halal except one Indian Malay store outside the Clarke Quay shopping mall. The food we got was MacDonald, KFC and fried rice/noodle for the party. But is not the food that brought everyone together today was the bond of the class that made us survive through our school days.
video 
*So in the video was everyone who came for the food and party.

After our dinner together was time to bid farewell to some people as they need to attend some family time at home or friends party outside. But the event was still on as a few of us dress up again in our swimwear and when back down for swimming again.  But before going for the swim, I decided to call Room service and ask for a bucket of ice and sets of new towels and my shower gel for my late night bath soaking. 
* The pool is a must to try out if you stay at this hotel and their service is one of the best, you must really stay here to enjoy the experience. I will tell you why it's the best soon.

After about an hour it's time to head back to the room and wash up to send some of my friends back home.

*Took a short video of the walk in back to my suite. 

video
It's really a great suite filled with lot's of fun and laughed

Soon after everyone has washed up, it's time again to say goodbye again to a few people and really it's great to see the smile and enjoy they had, as a host this is a the best gift ever from my classmate. After some have left, it's time for guy's night in the hotel with my travel pals. We had a movie date in the living room first and really the sound quality of the TV is really great, as it really bring out my feeling of me in a cinema and plus the Suite Room you can adjust the mood you like to have.

Since it's a stay-cation it's a must to have some fun in the room *not what you think*, it's time to have some gaming session on the laptop and some drinking session while watching a movie. After all this fun, I when for a Bathtub soaking again but this time, round I will show you how is the bath tub like and why do I love this bathtub a lot HAHAHA.

video
* So this is me preparing my bath tub so my really late night soaking. It's 3.28 am in the wee morning and people are sleeping while me soaking in the tub for 1 hour. HAHA

After the soaking for an hour, my pals decided to go for a wee morning gym session using the hotel gym facilities. We started the gym at 5 am till 6 am where I decided to head back to the room to have a look of the sun rising up from my hotel room.

*Took a time-lapse of the Morning view and had this great morning view of Singapore

video

Since the morning sun is up it's time for breakfast by the hotel. 

When down to the hotel restaurant name :
LIME

Cuisine Type : Asian and International Buffet 
Opening Hours : 6.30 am to 12.30 am for Breakfast
Price : SGD 32 if you purchase your meal at the counter
SGD 38 if you walk in to the restaurant    

*Choose this seat at the bar which offer the great view of the restaurant and a luxury view of the chef preparing the food fresh from the fridge and serving it hot right in-front of you. 

videoThe restaurant service is the best where the staff would walk you in and let you choose your seat and introduce you the different type of food and what food is good of your morning diet. The restaurant is like a home where the staff is friendly and they welcome all type of guest. There are three open kitchens in the restaurant where the in-house chefs would display the skill of cooking and transform the fresh ingredients you chose and turn into your proper set of morning breakfast meal. So the morning breakfast I decided to try out was egg Benedict and egg omelet, I get to choose the type of ingredient I would like to help in my omelet and the best part is they cook and prepare right in front of you. 

After my morning breakfast was time to head back up again to enjoy the last view of Singapore skyline and had my last bath with my favorite soaking of the bath tub. About 11 am was to check out where the hotel staff helped me with my luggage from my room till the concierge counter where I check out and they asked how is my stay with the hotel, I replied: "It's awesome" and I was walked out of the hotel with the Bell Boy into my car and it's so sad to bid farewell to this awesome hotel in Singapore.  

It's really a must to stay at this hotel, the experience you received is really different trust me. 
You will never regret staying in this awesome hotel and the service they provided is really great cause even in the wee morning 2 am I asked for ice and soap they really do it and put on a smile at your door step. 

Why I choose this hotel? First this hotel was in one of my favorite movie " Hit-man Agent 47" yeah this hotel was featured in the movie and also received lot of good review from my friends and another blogger

How's my stay? It's awesome and it's the best of the best. First you are greeted and staff would mind going the extra mile to help you in any way.

Tick Tock Tick Tock Guess who is behind the Dock.

What has hands but no arms and a face but no eyes with a Rotating Bezel ?  


Hmmmm A Computer?

Nope! What the Hell how does a Computer has a hand HAHAHA

Hmmm I Give Up 

HAHAHAHA wait...

It's a Watch 

Wrong!

It's the all new Galaxy Gear S2 with the rotating bezel and has many different face not one or two. 

Not long ago , Samsung has release a new watch that would impress any smart watch that you are currently wearing. This watch comes with a full circle made with a durable stainless stell body that sits slim and sleek on your wrist plus it's able to customize it to suit your style and the band of the watch can change is so easily like changing a clothes to a party HAHAHAHA. 

1 month ago on the 26 & 27 of Sep was the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Gear S2 in Singapore at Ngee Ann City at the heart of Orchard Road. So I was Happy to be invited to had a preview of the Watch that Samsung has design for everyone to suit their daily need. 
Before I start tell you more about the S2 , watch this Preview about the Event in Singapore. The Galaxy Studio 


Hmmm how the video? Quite impressive right? Chey HAHA 
I am really impress of Samsung Singapore of how they WOW everyone whom attend or visited this event and would always leave a strong feeling after they left the event. 

So After a week , guess who is the first in Singapore to have this watch? Me
HAHAHA Yeah
On the 1 of Oct I am happy to be the first few to have/ use  the Galaxy Gear S2 Classic watch and after I got my hand on it , guess where i brought it to? To the USS ( universal studios singapore) HAHA 
On that day , my watch is already set up for me and I already got the hang of it like I use it before. It's quite a easy and useful watch as all you need is just the Bezel and rotate it like a watermelon on the floor , next it also remind me of what time I am suppose to meet my friends , where and also inform me to drink Plain Water every 45 minute. *All the function I mention has already pre-set for me.  

Sometime is vibrating......... Oh it's 5.30 pm and the note on my gear S2 is reminding me that I have a meeting with my clique at 6 pm for the Halloween Event Launch at USS at 7.15 pm. Okay so I met up with my friends Charles and Shaun at Vivo City Singapore and then we walked to Sentosa as it's a free entry for walk-in customer HAHAHA *We are not cheapo okay , just that we want to exercise HAHA Joke. So after we reach the entrance of USS , I decided to have a quick Dinner as I didn't eat anything for Lunch so I am like surviving with my back-up fats HAHA Yeah. Had Noodle for dinner and quick session with the clique. After the Dinner it's about 7.10pm so we when to the VIP entrance to get our ticket to the Event , VIP sioh! Yeah We got our hands on the VIP ticket thanks to some connection from my media friends , so finally got check-in to our ticket and it's time for the Halloween Horror Night 5 in Singapore. 
*This blog is not for the faint hearted or people who love churros , cause I will be the one chasing after you if you have Churros on your hand HAHAHA*

Finally it's 7.30 pm and it's the premier opening act of the HHN 5 and it's really a wonderful act of the raise of the Blood Moon in the USS. After the opening act , it's time for THE TOILET MUHAHAHA
I when to the toilet and decided to take a piss in the VIP horror toilet and guess what happen!
Watch this Short Clip and you will know what happen.
video
When I am taking a piss , out of the blue the light's when off and I felt the present of someone behind me with a headache HAHAHAHA


 So the VIP started after I had my small business , our tour guide was a Half-dead surgeon zombie and she look quite cute though. But always there are four different-themed haunted houses to visit , and practically it scared off my hungry for churros at the end of the Tour.  

First House we visited was the :  “The MRT” demonized  with “True Singapore Ghost Stories”  author and It was quite scary as it's about a village filled with ghost whom want your soul while you are on your way back home with the Singapore Local Transport but didn't really scared me much. Scared rate 4/5 

Second House we visited was the : “Tunnel People” so basically you would be walking in darkness filled with lot of weird smell cause the theme is Tunnel so basically is like going to a drainage system to find your way that you drop but for this you have to feel your way out of this torturous maze while people pulling your leg. Scared rate 4/5 

Third House we visited was the : “Siloso Gateway Block 50” this haunted house , I would really say It's very impressive so I myself love watching THE WALKING DEAD they really turned the entire HDB flat/Apartment into a place infected with zombie whom are play as the people who lived there. It's like a ZOMBIE HOUSE but quite scary. Scared rate 4.5/5

Lastly the house we visited was the : "Hell House" Yeah it's a hell house of a Chinese version, it's the 18 level of hell filled with fear and horror you can never even expect from a Chinese hell. Normally Chinese would burn Paper doll as a respect / offering to the dead and this time the scary paper mache figures smiling blankly at you and laugh behind you as you walk your way out from the 18 level of hell , this house will have your goosebumps standing throughout the walk as I could really feel the heat of hell. Scared rate 5/5 

After our visit to the houses and scared zone , our half-dead zombie brought us to the ride where we don't have to queue at all , she just bring us straight to the ride without queuing cause we are the VIP man HAHAHA . Really I would say it's really worth of the VIP tour if you are going for this halloween event and you want to avoid the crowd so I would say VIP would be a deal for you if you don't mind paying a bit more then the normal standard ticket. *Not encouraging you guys to buy , it's just a review of the VIP Tour I experience. 

As the clock strike 12.30 am it's time for the Living to return back to safe heaven. 
Yeah , I am also really happy with the Gear S2 as it keep track of my heart rate while being scared by the Actor and Actress. And till now it's reminding me of my daily intake of Plain Water and keeping track of my walking and heart rate.

Thank You Samsung for designing such a awesome watch. 



If you like to try out the Gear S2 visit any Samsung Experience store now and give it a try.
Price at : $548 for the Classic and $438 for the Sport Version  
*I would say the classic has the best design if you like the hipster theme and classy look
