T.A.Z Cafe and Bistro— A place for your Paw Buddies to meet New Friends.

I’ve decided to visit this newly established dog-friendly cafe as I had always wanted to dine with my three lovely dogs. Besides, it is always good to bring them all out to mingle and play right? Yes, there are many dog cafes available in Singapore. But why T.A.Z? 

T.A.Z Cafe and Bistro was found by a kind-hearted and hardworking woman,  Adeline Ho. She is a major sucker for all kinds of dogs. Like Literally. She practically picks up most stray and lost dogs on roadsides and bring them home to raise and take care of them. This lead to the cafe titled as T.A.Z, which is named after three of her dogs- Teddy, Ah girl and Zealous. She is the chef of this cafe as well. From cooking delicious human and dog foods, to baking extremely cute cakes. 

Whats makes this cafe unique is the fact that, T.A.Z cafe always host private events such as birthdays and even raise awareness for dogs by collaborating with various dog adoption drives!!! So, be sure to help save all these poor puppies~ 

The Interior

The layout of the cafe is fantastic and ideal for all dogs to come along and play as there is a huge space for them to run around.

And if you notice, all the brown chairs are accompanied with a white chair. I reckon that these white chairs are specifically for all your paw buddies! How thoughtful is that? 🙂 

Wall decals~

Comfortable seats~

Besides having a big and air-conditioned area, they even have a VIP room catered to any of your groups’ celebrations or requests!

For food wise, I would not comment much as I did not order any food that day. My ultimate goal was to let my dogs have fun. So, the owner herself made a specialty for them: Sweet potato, meat and carrot bits.

They do look  pretty appetising for dogs yea? Definitely smell good too.

And here’s Adeline giving treats to all the dogs. Haha. They are so obedient! CUTE~


Meet Teddy the Poodle!

I bet it tasted really good that Clover finished the whole plate!

Amenthyst, the love of my life. ❤
Enuff said about the food and place.
Retail services are available too! You need pet shampoos, dog tags, apparels? You can get them right after your meal here! No need for the hassle to buy from other places. Woo-hoo~

All dog lovers, do visit T.A.Z cafe and give it a try! Remember, your purpose of visiting a dog cafe is to let your paw buddies meet new friends as well as to enjoy themselves in a new environment by stepping out of their comfort zone at home. 😀 It is always good to socialise.

10 steps to plan the perfect 21st Party.— #C.Faith’s 21st

Three years back, if you asked me ‘how are you going to celebrate when you turn 21?’ My answer to you will most likely be,’Probably travel with friends…’
However, now that I’ve finally reached the ‘prime’ year of becoming an official adult, somehow, there will be a drive within that will have the desire to want to open the best 21 party of my life! #YOLO

In my case: I’ve brought my 21st party exactly 4 months in advance to gather and celebrate my last few moments of youth as well as farewell with all my loved ones…

Trust me, organising a party yourself is crazy madd and stress, especially on that exact day! It is quite a hassle, but you will appreciate this hectic process and know that the amount of unconditional love and help you get from your friends are nothing else but a sparkling gem etched in your heart. ❤

1. Start Early—Set a Date.

Planning a 21st birthday party isn’t just about planning a party. IT IS A BIG PARTY. A MASSIVE PARTY. It may probably be the last party of your life (unless you are getting married then wedding party will be a much more grand and magnificent one). Hence, setting a specific date early would be good so as to notify your guests early as everyone is busy with their own life happenings. It will be good for them to know early so that they can block out and draw a huge circle on their calendar stating: _______ 21 Birthday Party!!

You might end up feeling that this first part is already a pain in the ass because you will want all your important people to attend but at the same time, worried that they might not be able to make it on that day. Weekends are usually the best days to hold a party—Either a Saturday or a Sunday.

A word of advice: Saturday is usually best for night events as some people do have to work on a saturday such as hospital jobs.. etc. Sunday will be best for a whole day event such from morning till prolly 10pm as it is a public holiday, so the probability of turn ups will be much higher. 

People that actually do care about you, will definitely attend your party, no matter what circumstances. So, just select a date that best suits you! 

2. Theme
The first part of planning a party is the THEME. Now, this is probably one of the more crucial part as you will want your party to be memorable to yourself as well as others. Most importantly, it must be unique and extraordinary! So, be creative, and think of whatever ideas and inspirations that comes to you. Let your inner artsy-fartsy character out (no one will judge you even if its the worst colour combination ever, its your party)! Eg. wild & crazy, quirky & fun, sexy & naughty, dainty & flowery, pinky & barbie… etc.

Well, one thing is to do tons of research online. Your best friend in this period will probably be Google. HA! 

Theme for #C.Faith’s 21st: Parisian style, together with Tiffany Mint Green as main colour. Well, my theme is chosen out of love! Because it is how I love paris so much and also, Tiffany mint green 🙂

3. Budget
So now that you are all set for your date of your party and the theme, you can start thinking about the cost.
This section is subjective. It depends on the how important this day is for you and how you want it to be displayed to your guests. You can be simple and nice, expensive and glamorous or just average but still look as awesome.

Budgetting fora party is typically about $500 and above (including the venue). Ultimately, it all depends on yourself, number of guests and how many sponsors you can get.

Budget set for #C.Faith’s 21st: $1000 nett. (including venue and food)
As I am not a filthy rich person, my budget is rather tight. So this is my breakdown of the cost of my party:
1. Birthday cake— approx. $250 (sponsored by my brother)
2. Decorations— $150
3. Food and drinks— $600
4. Venue— $0 (condo function room)
5. Photo Booth— approx. $300 (sponsored by my sister)

Since my cake and photobooth are sponsored by my siblings, I actually spent less than 1K for my party! Also, note that my venue is FOC because I already had plans to host my party in a function room. The approx. amount of people I invited was 80 guests, turn up was about 60plus? (More people = more money have to be spent on food and drinks—bear this in mind). Having to pay for a venue on your party is really expensive. Eg. Chalet— run down and not unique but yet it is still about $300 per night?! 

5. Venue and Environment
At this section, I need to stress and emphasize that, if you want to get a good venue, or rather the BEST location to fit your theme party then you must start planning at least 6 months in advance. The fact that you are not the only 21 years old baby of the year, there will be lot of other people that might had booked the place way ahead of you!

Top list of birthday venues:
-Condo function room
-Hotel (eg. marina bay sands, studio M, etc.)
-Chalets (eg. costa sands pasir ris, east coast park)
-NSRCC at changi

Well, from the list above, the only one that is FOC is condo function room. Others are just too costly or too small like opening in a hotel (unless you host in a suite).

Venue for #C.Faith’s 21st: Marina Bay Residence 
Because my party is parisian-themed, to find a venue that is able to fit my theme had been a real challenge for me. With my wide social networking and connections, my bf and I managed to get a function room at Marina Bay Residence. It is a huge space and could cater to just the amount of people I invited— 80+ guests.

The breeze up there is soothing, the mind blowing infinity pool, the gorgeous sight of Marina Bay sands right in front of your eyes and the choice for my guests to choose to sit indoor or outdoor~ impressive! The whole level is literally mine!

Thank God for the  existence of nice and kind  people in the world~ 🙂

6. Decorations
At this stage, everything is more or less set, move on to decorations—the most interesting and fun part of planning a party! It is also very important as it is a showcase and impress your ‘dream’ party to all your guests.
If you don’t want to spend too much money on decorations, it will be highly recommended that you make them out of your bare hands and not just buying off the racks.

Besides, your DIYs will definitely be exquisite, special and EXTRAORDINARY.

Decoration breakdown:
a) Invitation Card/ Facebook event page
Now, this is the very start and beginning of your party. You want this invitation card to look good so people will actually be of significance to them.

Since your theme had already been selected, you can go ahead and create that collage of words and pictures to entice your guests. MAKE THEM EGGCITED FOR YOU!
This card/image should include every details of your party (so you don’t have to spend too much time answering questions about details of your event).

Invitation card/ image for #C.Faith’s21st: 

FYI: Easily made with iphone apps such as vscocam, doodles, picarts….

b) Backdrop
Parties are all about taking photos… Therefore, the backdrop must be the one that displays exactly what your theme is, by just a glance at photos.

Backdrop for #C.Faith’s21st: Mint Green-Dyed Streamers with  Eiffel towers.

In my case, as mint green streamers are not commonly sold (either buy them from extremely expensive online stores and ship from america, or can just forget about it).

I have a budget so I made my backdrop from scratch, literally. & I can say, the backdrop is my proudest part of my party. It took me a whole long of one and a half month to finish it, apart from my busy schedule. And I am so happy that the finished product look so fantastic and dreamy…


TIPS–How I made this beautiful streamer that I love so much :

  • Step 1: Use green white board maker inks and mix with ethanol. The use of alcohol is essentially because apart from the fact that it evaporates faster than water, it will not disintegrate your streamers and retain the crinkly crepe paper effect still.
  • Step 2: Find the picture (eg. eiffel tower) and paint ’21’ on the lace baking papers.
  • Step 3: Paste the lace paper and eiffel tower alternatively on sewing strings that are so thin that it is not visible from far.
  • Step 4, tie the streamers individually on a rafia string or normally rope and alternately, string the lace papers and eiffel tower. Repeat as many time as you want to make it as long as you want.


FYI: It is easier for me since I work in the lab. Do not attempt unless you know how to handle ethanol!

c) Miscellaneous decoration goods for the venue
Party goods such as balloons are definitely a must! I chose 21 helium balloons of colour combination of yellow, pink, blue and white. Wall streamers were made of white lace papers (folded into halves) and tied with balloons in between. The colour combination complimented my photobooth backdrop so well!
My guest book shown below is DIY by my talented sister.

You can purchase balloons from: PARTY JOY  http://www.harvestwell.com.sg/party.htm
– highly recommended and is the cheapest among all party shops in Singapore that I know.

You can also get decorative papers and glitter powders from paper market to enhance the ambiance of the venue.
Eg. ‘Welcome to my party’ (as shown below)

7. Food l Appetisers l Dessert Table
The highlight of all parties–FOOD/DESSERTS/SWEETS. This practically what your guests anticipates and look out for. Who doesn’t love desserts? Not only must it taste good, it must look IRRESISTIBLY TEMPTING too!

Appetisers for #C.Faith’s 21st:

Mini Tart Canapes by Delifrance.
Delifrance has a wide range of mini party delights to choose from! From sandwiches to quiches and tarts…etc.

8. Dress code
Typically, a party is a time where everyone gathers to celebrate a joyous occasion with you.
Usually, most of people will just sit and talk, catch up on one another’s life happenings, but this is no difference from celebrating Chinese new year, clubbing… where it is all about mingling.

Therefore, to make things more interesting, since it is a themed-party, there should, obviously, be a DRESS CODE/ COSTUME to fit the theme. This, not only makes photos to look nicer, and also it makes your whole party like a ‘perfect package’.

Dress code for #C.Faith’s21st: Lace and Leather.
While most parties that I had attended are commonly based on colour dress code, I did not want my party to fall in the same category of colours…

Knowing that my party is a French-Paris style party, it is impossible that people will be spontaneous to actually dress themselves with stripes and berets. I did a whole lot of research and finally got inspired by Maria Antonietta.– the classic, vintage concept of using LACE. Lace and leather is therefore decided.

I am really happy that eventually many of my guests did turn up according to the dress code!
Some of the best outfits:



Of course, not everyone will be bothered to dress up as well, which is why, I organised a BEST-DRESS COMPETITION, so as to encourage people to actually bother to dress up for my party.

FYI: It is a cash prize. 😀 As a token of appreciation that you actually did dress up by going through your messy closet to find that perfect look!


My two lovely judges- Jessilyn and Mavis.

9. Photography l Photo Booth
For such big parties, an instant print photo booth is no doubt, A MUST!

A photo booth is always fun and most importantly, the instant printout for your individual guests will be a piece of ‘memory’ for keep sake.

Some fun ideas could be adding props such as:

Paper straws are great crafts for props!
I purchased them from TAOBAO, which is so much cheaper!!! Not to forget, the pattern and colours of the paper straws are prettier on TAOBAO~ ^^

Photo Booth for #C.Faith’s 21st: Photolux Singapore.

I love how Photolux personalised and customised the border of the printouts to fit the theme of my party!

To engage photolux, visit their page at: https://www.facebook.com/photolux.sg

10. Don’t Panic! Just KEEP SMILING and be PHOTO-READY. BE THANKFUL.
Because you are the host and you are the limelight of the day, you do not want your candid shots to be a sulking and frowning face.
The first thing to tell yourself is to NOT PANIC. Alright, this might sound impossible since you are the party-planner and you won’t want to afford any forms of mishaps or screw ups.

But in order to really enjoy your big day is to calm down and go with the flow, remember that your family and close friends will always be there to clean up any mess for you and help make sure that everything runs smoothly. So, the only thing you have to do, really, is
to SHOW THAT WIDE BIG SMILE OF WHITE, SHINY TEETH.

Overall, my party was a success. Even though there was quite a few hiccups, but still, everyone enjoyed themselves! I am really thankful for all who had sacrificed their time to attend my party and also the ones that really put in 100% effort to help me! Really, THANK GOD for all these wonderful people that I had met in my life. ❤

My Sweet Memory—- Cakes, Latte and even Stationery!


Everyone knows well enough that in Aussie, shops do not open till late. When dark falls, the city are usually referred to as ‘Ghost town’–Silence, that’s it. The only thing you can hear is probably the sound of wind.

Well, having been living in this new city- Sydney for about 3 months or so, it is not the case like a ‘ghost town’, but rather, a busy and vibrant city even till late. And yes, this specific DESSERT cafe that I am about to recommend, opens till midnight! Now, this is a huge plus point. You can have something sweet after a sumptuous dinner and not worry that: ‘There are  prolly no desserts anywhere to be found after 8pm.’

The Sweet Memory— an asian or rather, a KOREAN cafe that entitles you to fine quality coffee, a wide range of appetizing CAKES, and also an area of retail sections on adorable stationery. I mean, if you know korea well enough, you’ll prolly know how cute and unique their stationery are. 

The Interior

Just look at the delicious selection of cakes! And trust me, one slice of  is so DAMN HUGE!


If you are craving for something savory, they serve a a range of sandwiches, quiches and pies too. Many choices just to suit your daily cravings. Isn’t that great? 🙂

 
The chandelier lighting—- one of the impressive interior design that makes me fell in love with this place. Just look at that marvelous creation of using potted plants, wired stars and lights hanging together! 

 

The FOOD
Even though I only tried just one type of their cake, it pretty much sums up my review that ‘ I WILL COME BACK HERE’!! And for those that are fans of matcha/ greentea, give their greentea ice blended a go! It’s their signature beverages. Of course, if you are feeling cold, you can always have the hot green tea latte that I tried. Taste equally awesome! 

 The AMBIANCE
You can never go wrong with the choice of wooden furniture! My sweet memory is able to provide a comfy and soothing ambiance. Classic and lifestyle aspects were delivered, whereby they separate their business into two components: DESSERT and STATIONARY.

The PRICE
Good value for that slice of cake.— approx. $7? You can just share it with your friend. The coffee and green tea latte is average pricing. Norm. So, still good to come and give this place a try!

Many outlets available, so more choices catered! ^^

Not Eggs and Bacon but NARNIE for brunch.—Three Williams.


If you are craving for something out of the menu for brunch, Three Williams is a must visit cafe.

But before I proceed, just a small tip: DO MAKE A RESERVATION. If not, you will have to wait for an hour or so. That’s what happened to us.
Unfortunately.

The interior.


Chai latte in a pot! — It’s so adorable. 

Bimbimbap (pork with kimchi) Narnie— Fresh on the menu!

Glazed Beef Brisket with Slaw.— Another asian fusion dish that you definitely want to give it a try! *yums*

Or, if you are french-dish kinda person, you might go for something even healthier.— Brioshe french toast.


Fish Croquette– not just an ordinary one, this has potato mashed fillings in it! And the simple egg-like display, is certainly child-friendly and loving. 🙂


Of course, there is always space for dessert! ^^

The FOOD

  • Bimbimbap Naan— Asian fusion kinda taste. The dough of the NAAN is really good. But, the setback is probably the fact that the meat seems to be from canned food. Hmmm… but not to worry, it still goes well with the NAAN. Definitely filling too!
  • Glazed Beef Brisket Narnie with Slaw—A healthy choice I would say. But, it taste no different from a regular wrap that you can get from anywhere. The only difference is the outer layer is NAAN instead of usual thin wraps.
  • Fish Corquettes with lemon and Aioli: Crispy and creamy filling. The combination of fish fillet and mashed potato makes this finger food to be absolutely unique. Not to forget that egg-like display, totally making full use of the usual unwanted egg casing… That’s just so creative!
  • Brioche French Toast with blueberry and strawberry yoghurt: I did not personally get to taste this dish, but by the looks of it, I am pretty sure everyone is giving it a thumbs up.
  • Chocolate brownie, orange cake and chocolate topped donut: I would say this is just ordinary. Not special. You can just have any other better desserts in another cafe. I guess this cafe is not made for desserts.

 The AMBIANCE
The open big space, with an interior built with a bicycle friendly ramp enhance the whole atmosphere to be cool and hippy. I actually love the whole concept. Also, the idea of making a chalkboard wall for kids to doodle, it’s so brilliant.

The PRICE
I wouldn’t say its near the affordable price. It’s actually pretty pricey for just a small portion of Naan…but if quality is considered, then it’s an alright-not-too-bad price. Make sure you only visit here if you want to eat NARNIE—the only signature dsh of three williams!

The Coastal Walk.— Coogee to Bondi.


FYI and abstracted from: http://bonditocoogeewalk.com.au

The Famous Coastal walk of Sydney.— approx. 5.9km, if you calculate from the map. Yes, we ventured out on this 2 hours of long walk, bracing through the strong winds and sweltering hot sun, just to see the beautiful horizon and cliffs…Worth it!

Oh first, HAPPY EASTER/ GOOD FRIDAY peeps!
In Aussie, this special day is very important, so most of the shops are closed. Thus, only the beach is ‘open’ right? And with the weather forecast being absolutely accurate for once, we decided to go for this coastal walk. Enough of hearing people say how gorgeous and magnificent the views are, I am bringing my pairs of eyes to see them, literally. Thank God for this perfect weather! 🙂
Our Starting Point: Coogee Beach.—- Quiet. Serene. Calm.


We walked along the path to the other side of Coogee beach, which also marks the end of Coogee. So, the next spot is definitely the cliff! The view there is indeed, stunning.
At the cliff… We spent quite a while at this area. We went all cray cray over the whole view. It’s so pretty, I can’t even. 

Mandatory tourist shot~ ❤



Oh, we managed to see one of the sweetest and coolest confession ever.




I love this picture so much!
And many other confessions carved on the rocks.

The view from the cliff is so irresistable… MUST TAKE PHOTOS.




As we continue our walk….



We finally reach one part of Clovelly beach!
There lies a row of boats and kids playing with shallow, clear waters of the ocean.


This area— magical and colurful.
As the strong currents and waves hit on the walls of the cliff/rocks… together with the sunlight shining through the prism-like water dropets… you see the formation of rainbow… Countless times~


And yes, and an hour… its Clovelly Beach.– my new love.


It tooks us another 30 minutes to reach Bronte Beach, where we took a rest for awhile. Immersing the Sun rays and Breeze~

Then, followed by Tamarama beach, the smallest beach of all. 
About an hour after Clovelly beach, we finally see BONDI! YAY WE MADE IT!
US— sweaty, sticky and thirsty…. and HUNGRY.


Bondi beach— Crowded. Overrated. Popular.


Ending point: Bondi Beach.— my ex-love. Why?

Because after exploring and experiencing all 4 beaches, my favourite is  Clovelly Beach. — the side where the ocean is  equivalent to being a public pool! I’m definitely going to swim in that clear water the next time!

The coastal walk is a great time to relax your mind off your busy life and also a good body-aching workout! Your butt will get firm with all the walking. Trust me. Hehe.

Next mission: Coogee to Marouba!

Peter’s of Kensington—‘Pinkish’ Retail Therapy.

Reason why we decided to give this small cafe a try.— The so-appetizing looking cakes/tarts~ ^^

The interior.
A quarter of Peter’s is occupied by this quaint, little cafe. Besides going ‘GAGA’ over Peter’s, you will be surprised how this cafe is a perfect place for a SATURDATE.

Even though it might seem like a big mess over the ledge (where the sale items were), but the idea of hanging those airplanes and hot air balloons… Splendid. Not only these hot air balloons give the place a dreamy feel, it also reminds me of ‘UP’ the movie…  
Using plates, utensils and cook wares as decorations, that is something unusually beautiful as well.


Just look at this Strawberry Tart, doesn’t it make yoour craving/devour mode onz?!

It is too  irresistable so we made a wise choice to have a taste of this marvelous creation. I mean it, MARVELOUS. Of course, a flat white to go along with it. Am a total coffee/tea junkie.

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

After having said so much about the cafe itself, just a few preview of what this whole ‘Peter’s of Kensington’ is about. Why I am so ‘cray cray’ over it…

Because they sell literally EVERYTHING! From home supplies to books to toys to beauty products to gifts! Everything for any occasion. Especially if you are a person that loves to bake, you got to visit Peter’s.

For all travel buddies~


So cute and exquisite clocks! Which is your favourite?

Welcoming the Easter Bunny~

The FOOD

  • Strawberry Custard Tart: Two words, Marvelous Creation. I need to emphasize this alot of times because it is! I have no regrets giving it a go. The strawberry coated on top has a little jelly, combined with the soft custard cream and the crispy exterior tart… What can I say? Just buy it! Damn it! 🙂
  • Flat White: No sugar required. Milk and Coffee blended just right.

The PRICE
You pay only $3.50 for a flat white and $8.90 for that big slice of tart! Where can you find such an affordable cafe in Sydney? Rare, I tell you. Rare.

The AMBIANCE
Needless to say, small but comfy. Clustered but homey. Hot air balloon and airplanes for sale.. A mess that brings the whole vibe of the cafe to be dreamy.

FYI: Peter’s is a huge store that sells everything and anything of high quality products that you need and want. Just like a big ass warehouse! Located at Kensington, you can easily spot them as it is the only baby -pink-painted buliding standing  right there.
If you are too lazy to spend about 2hours there, you can always purchase their goods online: http://www.petersofkensington.com.au/Public/Default.aspx
