Purr Cat Cafe Club Bangkok

I was alone in BKK two weeks ago and I had some spare time so I decided to check out Purr Cat Cafe Club at Thonglor. It's pretty hard to find cos it's tucked in a deep alley. Better to take a cab in if you're unfamiliar with the roads/soi.

I've always been a dog lover and never really gave much attention to cats but for the past one year I've been surrounded by cat lovers that I gradually developed a liking for kitties too. And I gotta say after this trip to Purr cat cafe, I like cats even more!

Are you ready for the most number of cat selfies you will ever see in one single post? Heheh.

Totally unbothered and unimpressed with me but it's ok I still love you sleepy kitty!

"Guard cat"
This cutie kept staring at my bag like it wanted to protect it. SO CUTE!!!

And then the little kitten which I saw.............

AHHHHHH I'm super in love with the kittens. They are sooooooo bloody cute?!!!!! I wish they were allowed out of their "cage" but they were too young to mingle around with everyone.

And this super fierce-looking kitty is called Buno if I'm not wrong! It's not very fierce but kinda in her own world? 


Doesn't it look like a white version of garfield? Super fluffy and cute. Too cute for selfies with me, oh wells~~~

And this alien-looking cat!

Hahah aren't they all so cute???? I love Purr cat cafe I wanna go back there again soon!
How's the one in Singapore? Are the cats as cute? ^^

Purr Cat Cafe Club

Charme nails!

I'm finally done with exams (10 days ago) FOR LIFE. Yup I'm now a uni grad hehehe. Been on a long hiatus cos I was busying preparing for exams and after that I was extremely busy with TJM. Just wanna say a big thank you to all you girls who bought the boyfriend jeans. Never expected it to sell so well and it certainly kept me busy for the past few days. 

So the first thing I did after I finished my last paper was go for mani + pedi cos my nails were bare and ugly I hated it sooooo bad!

Here's where I did it!

They just underwent a renovation! Very inviting, fresh and cosy ambience now (:

I love pedicure especially when you scrub off the dead skin. Such a sense of achievement. Goodbye dead skin!

Post-exam ootd! I love this flowy maxi dress from H&M so much. Think I'll bring it along to Bali in June! :D

And here's my nail design!

Decided to go for something simple hence I did mosaic tile gelish nails with glitter! I can't really stand those super blinged up ones cos it's super inconvenient to type. Feels like an extra burden on the nails hehe. 
Now I've pretty nails for my Seoul trip in 2 days' time!

Charme recently brought in essential oils and they are for sale so do check it out when you're in town, X!

Boyfriend Jeans!

If you haven't already noticed, I've been wearing these boyfriend jeans to death it's pretty much explosive on my Instagram account. Not complaining though, cos they are possibly the most amazing pairs of jeans I've ever owned! I love how edgy and timeless boyfriend jeans are. You can wear them with heels, chucks, sneakers, sandals and it will never go wrong. SO MANY WAYS TO WEAR THEM!!! I still wanna experiment it with muscle tanks, boyfriend shirts and heavy jackets!

They are Godsent! Can't resist both colors so I kept both for myself, and both have slightly different shredding techniques! 

One tip for you girls.
If you noticed, the dark denim actually looks more loose on me and light denim looks more fitting and sleek. That's cos I picked size S for light blue, and size M for dark blue so the latter would look more baggy aka boyfriend-ish which would make it easier if I wanna achieve a laidback boyfriend look. On the other hand, the tighter light denim is for simpler and classier looks. 

Here are some inspirations I found online (:

Even my boyfriend loves my boyfriend jeans hahaha.

You really can't go wrong with these jeans, and I'm not saying it because I'm selling them but I genuinely (cross my heart) love them so much. Sharing is caring (:

I've opened backorders for both colors on TJM!
BO closes on 8 May so hurry! (:

Teeth polishing and fillings!

There are some things I need to do like cleaning, polishing and filling my teeth before Invisalign. Have to remove my wisdom tooth next and I'm so scared :/

Did scaling, polishing, drilling and fillings last week at ToofDoctor!

My before! Can't wait to say bye bye to this smile!
*Pardon my chapped lips and dry skin cos my skin was reacting very badly to the pimple cream I was using*

ToofDoctor is conveniently located at Tanjong Pagar Plaza which is a short 5 mins' walk from Tanjong Pagar MRT station. The clinic is very prominent so I'm sure you will spot it very easily!

Very inviting and clean reception!

Waiting area which is filled with magazines and newspaper to keep you entertained (:

And this is the room where I get my teeth checked, cleansed etc!

Doctor Diong advised me to do a round of cleaning and fillings so my teeth will be healthy and clean for invisalign (: The whole process wasn't painful or uncomfortable since numbing gel would be applied. The whole process took about 1.5 hours, pretty fast! (:

And that's me doing a quick fluoride treatment to prevent tooth decay by making the tooth resistant to acid attacks from plaque bacteria and sugars in the mouth! The treatment contains a much higher level of of fluoride than in toothpastes or mouth rinse so it's really beneficial if you want to prevent tooth decay! Tooth decays are nasty! Besides, the treatment was really quick and easy.

After visiting ToofDoctor, I realised how important it is to keep your teeth in check regularly. Besides the basic brushing of teeth and flossing of teeth at home, you should visit your dentist regularly to cleanse your teeth and do preventive treatments like the fluoride therapy. After all, prevention is better than cure! You don't want to hit 25 and only realize your teeth are decaying!

For those interested, you can call up ToofDoctor for your annual polishing/scaling or even just for consultation if you're interested in braces or invisalign.

I'm super happy that my dental clinic is located in Tanjong Pagar, the area with tons of good food! I'm so excited for my subsequent visits cos I want to explore all the good food and I wanna share them with you! Maybe I could even do a "Tanjong Pagar food blog" hahaha.

So, this time I tried Keisuke Tonkotsu King @ Orchid Hotel. Heard a lot about them and finally got a chance to try their famous ramen! Super lucky there was no queue when I went!

Ordered their signature Tonkotsu ramen and boy was I impressed! Definitely one of the better ones I've eaten in Singapore. It could be the best actually? The soup was very savory, noodles were very bouncy and the meat was very tender! Only problem was the onsen egg was overcooked. They have free flow hard boiled eggs, spicy bean sprout and refillable water so I thought it was quite good. The bill came up to $17 after tax so it's very reasonably priced too!

Headed to Selfish Gene cafe which is just a short walk away to study. Only drank their earl grey tea and didn't get to try the food! Will try the food next time. Ambience was very pleasant though, and the smell of their freshly baked banana cake was soooooooooooooo good!!!! I was soooo tempted!

And yes some shameless selfies :D
