Instagram Snapshots ~*August 2014*~

Thank you all for sharing your thoughts with me on my previous post-- Blog Comments Dos and Don'ts. I had a great time reading all your insightful comments, mostly agreeing to what all of you have said. That was also a record-breaking post of a few hundreds page views and the post with the longest comments ever. I swear that when I read your comments off my mobile phone email app, it was like a neverending thesis.

Here's August instasummary 3 weeks late. It just keeps getting later and later. Instagram videos are better viewed on iamjolene Instagram page itself for sound and image quality, as well as full streaming,

I had the privilege of savouring some awesome homemade pies from Little Britain, operated by my very good gal pal and her hubby. They use nothing but premium ingredients. Wholesome natural goodness made with love. By far the best homemade pies I've eaten in a long time.
❤ Steak pies, chicken pies and seafood pies are currently on the menu.
❤ Their Facebook page is still under construction but do like the page if you've tasted and love their pies. https://m.facebook.com/littlebritainpies

Before: Woke up with swollen eyes #butfirstlemmetakeaselfie with Wondercam coz the app notification said it missed me.

After: Wondercam and make up still cannot mask the puffy eyebags but at least I look happy.




~2 August 2014~
Eating good food for a cause. Do support! This is my 3rd time here at Professor Brawn.
❤ ~*Professor Brawn National Day Special*~
❤ Special & Healthy Black Miso Cod Fish
❤ Seafood Pasta with Special Laksa Sauce
❤ Mushroom Soup
❤ Special Lemonade Drink
❤ They ran outta cupcakes so I had brownie while hubz had rum & raisin single scoop ice cream.
❤ Business with a Cause – when you dine at Professor Brawn café, you are supporting Social Enterprises like us to fulfil a social mission of providing employment & social integration opportunities to Persons with Disabilities (PWDs).

~*The stupid gal who fell down AGAIN*~
Recovered sprained foot from 1 week ago stepped into a porthole just now. The next moment, I fell flat on the road unable to get up for a few seconds. The hubz heard a splat, turned around and could not find me. Seriously, how many times must I fall down in a year? 😭 Thank you to the staff of 333 Bak Kut Teh. Instead of handing us the menu first, the sharp-eyed server took wet tissues for me. While walking to the loo and washing the wound on my palm, 3 different staff asked how I was and how I fell. Little actions... but it warmed the heart.




~3 August 2014~
A wefie with about 80% of the whole department taken using a selfie stick. I used to snigger whenever I see people using selfie sticks. However, I probably wouldn't do so anymore after seeing more and more great photos taken using selfie sticks.

~3 August 2014~
Latergram Family brunch at Alkaff Mansion Ristorante.




~3 August 2014~
Latergram. BMW World 2014 exhibition. Singaporeans' kiasu "free so must go" mentality landed us at MBS with a long carpark wait and long queue to the entrance of the exhibition.




~4 August 2014~
This "Buy A Brick for the SPCA's New Animal Shelter" Groupon deal totally caught my eye! Well done Groupon for partnering SPCA in conjunction with World Cat Day. Let's buy some bricks now!




~9 August 2014~
Happy 49th Birthday Singapore! I've been humming and singing National Day songs on and off the whole day. Patriotic? Nah... Just love Singapore too much. This photo is a throwback of 3 years ago when I painted our Singapore flag on my short stubby nail beds haphazardly with no manicure tools.




~10 August 2014~
We played Freeing SG again. Played the themed room Dark Souls and broke free once more! Yesterday was National Day so today the whole group except 2 notti ones were clad in our national colours red and white to FREE SINGAPORE!




~10 August 2014~
So since it was a day after National Day, we decided it would be fun to be clad in red and white... Except for one who claimed that her only red and white outfit was already worn yesterday. -_-|||




~10 August 2014~
We had Seoul Yummy for dinner. It was cheap and SO YUMMY. I'm still thinking of the chicken ginseng soup... Then it was BlackBall Singapore for desserts.




~11 August 2014~
Life is full of bumps and bruises.




~12 August 2014~
Healthy QQ Rice for dinner. I only tried their ready made onigiri style rice and love it. This is the first time choosing the ingredients myself. I cannot imagine how ingredients that look so unappetizing in the glass display case could churn out such a delicious meal! No wonder my friends raved about QQ rice.




~16 August 2014~
Yet another farewell in the department. This is getting too frequent. Here's a monochrome-themed sad creature inspired from an unidentified creature image I got off the net.




~16 August 2014~
Fringe too long. Time for a side swept till the next cut.




~16 August 2014~
At Cedele, we had beef stew soup to share. Hubby decided to go vegetarian today with tofu and mushroom pasta. I opted for the chili crab pasta with soft shell crab. All so delicious, even the boring looking tofu and mushroom. Cedele is fast becoming my favorite healthy dining choice. Not every Cedele outlet serves main courses though.




~17 August 2014~
First time visiting Parker Korean Restaurant. It has a comforting home-cooked feel but the prices aren't exactly home-cooked prices. I told the hub that the Ginseng Chicken soup could be my comfort food when I'm craving for soupy stuff but $23 isn't exactly very comforting.




~23 August 2014~
Enjoying YogActive Probiotic Cereal for late night snack. Super healthy and delicious cereal that is made of real raspberries, strawberries and blueberries with rice flakes and oh-so-yummy yogurt pearls. The pearls are not yogurt flavouring but actual yogurt with lactobacillus acidophilus. I'm so glad I picked this up instead of replacing my Blueberry Morning. I will definitely switch to YogActive from now on!




~24 August 2014~
Just because others did not do it YOUR way doesn't mean they are wrong.




~24 August 2014~
Wefie with my parents at Gardens by the Bay Flower Dome. We don't have a selfie stick so no flowers in the background.




~27 August 2014~
This looks like neoprint! Neoprints era was so just so fun. Happy belated birthday Wanying! It was a great catch up as usual with my favourite people WY, @emsmoments and HS who was with us on whastapp all the way from the land of watches and chocolates.




~27 August 2014~
Need advice from gelish users pls. Thanx in advance. What is the best way to remove gelish nail polish? I used to peel the dislodged polish off and slowly cut the nails shorter ESP when my hair gets caught underneath and flip them up. But I realised that the rough patches of the nail bed continues to form even after the painted parts have long grown out. I'm hesitating going to the salon to soak them off coz I do not wanna risk having thinner and weaker nails from the filing and soaking Which is more harmful to the nails?
Rant... Boy do I hate the discomfort of overly long clickety click nails and the icky feeling of hair being caught under the root edge of the gelish and flipping them upwards. Shouldn't all gelish be as smooth and attached to the nail beds as the fourth and last fingers?

  6. Poor danger mouse! You need to wrap yourself in bubble wrap head to toe for all movement :) Your wondercam shot looks like a porcelain doll more than it does lovely you. Speaking of lovely you, that side-swept hair shot is a stunner. You really are so lovely. I can not afford any bricks, I already have a house I do not want. No more use for bricks :) Very glad for the great response you got on that last post. It certainly deserved it :) xoxo

    1. All these camera apps tend to airbrush one to look like a porcelain doll or a mannequin! I noticed that whenever I wore my grey lenses, those selfies would get a lot more likes and comments. People like my unnatural beauty. Lol! I was quite heartened by the response on the comments dos and don'ts post. It is interesting to read everyone's opinions.

  9. Bahahaha OMG I can only imagine what those emails must have looked like. Oh man you are a trooper. But amazing to see how it generated such a debate eh. I swear you have one hell of a delicious feed girlie. It's all I get to see these days though, I guess I haven't been on much myself but I always manage to catch the foodie shots. I feel bad that I miss the rest, like the selfies and those injury shots. I wish I could have sent you a couple of blowing-heart-kiss-faces to soothe those pains. :o(

I tend to miss out a lot of Instagram posts too coz I usually only scroll my newsfeed when I post a pic or during commute. It is impossible to catch all so I know what you mean. Thank you so much, Sonia. You're such a sweetie.

  11. Must be more careful doll, those are some nasty bumps and scrapes. Although, this is coming from someone else who also knocks into things and falls over looking at my feet, haha. Must be careful. Loved these pictures :))) Have a sweet week xx

    1. The injury pics on Instagram didn't look as bad as the pictures I capture over the days. You're accident-prone too? I hope we are plagued with less knocks and falls for the rest of this year. Have a great week ahead!

  12. I love your Instagram diary :) how can you manage to fall so much? haha I mean, is not really funny, those scratches look painful! is it because you are no used to walk in heels or something like that? Also, I keep reading in your posts about "selfie sticks" and it sounds super funny! I've never seen one but that "welfie" you guys took at the office was pretty nice! you could see everybody in the picture, maybe is time for you to get on of those sticks and maybe share a review lol I might get one too :) The *Professor Brawn National Day Special* looked really fun and very cool! I wish there was something similar around where I live!!! I also liked the groupon update! I need to check it out. And about your gel nails, I wish I could be helpful, but I don't get my nails done like you do so I don't have a clue what to do to get rid of the gel, I hope you find the answer though!

    RYC:
    To answer your question, if I continue with my read-post-answer-with-a-good-comment method with the bloggerst hat keep answering one line comments... I guess I do :/ unless of course, this person has done it everytime! like for the fourth time and they don't reply like they should, then I stop visiting their blogs or maybe leave a "nice" comment haha I don't know, I always red them and answer Jo! I guess I'm kind of silly, oh well. One day, I think I told a girl that! she never replied... and I keep seeing her sucky comments on other blogs so I guess she didn't get my advice. There is not much we can do about it :/

    Have a great week Jo! and stop falling ok? lol
    XOXO

    1. The first fall was because the road had a parallel line of depression before the divider and I was jaywalking. Hence while looking out for cars, I stepped into the slight trench and fell on the road divider. The 2nd time, the heels did it! It was because of the deep hold in the road that my heel went in which caused the fall. I've been wearing flats for the longest time ever after those falls. In my recent gathering with friends yesterday, my gal pal used a selfie stick and it was really fun. I'm really more receptive to them now!

      I think I'm just as silly as you when it comes to those blog comments. For me, I would give them 3 chances. Lol... then it would either be 1 liner or I stop till the next time I feel like it. Hahaha...

      Have a lovely week ahead!

  13. Those pies look so good Jo. I truly believe the smaller the pie, the better they are. HaHa I enjoy eating them. I'm always bruising myself, but gosh Jo! We're going to have to give you elbow, knee pads and a helmet. Heal quickly and watch your step.

    1. I'm beginning to appreciate small pies after this. They really taste better when tiny. I didn't know you are always bruising yourself too. I hope we would be less prone to accidents. Fingers crossed.

  14. Jolene, how are your injuries now? I died a little seeing so many wounds!! :( Why do you fall so much? Haha! :p And seriously, your "instagram week" is by far the most fun I've come across!!! <3 Take care, babe!! Get well soon xoxo

  20. I thought those pies were the Portuguese natas pastry, they look really similar >_<.

    Ouch! Those scrapes look painful, I hope you weren't too hurt and that you'll make a quick recovery. It was really kind of the staff to offer so much help and concern.

    This is going to sound ignorant but I didn't know Groupon extended to Singapore! It's amazing that they're partnering up with SPCA though, helping animals is always a great cause.

    It's also really sweet that you write goodbye notes to colleagues that are leaving! We never do anything here -_-

    1. I know what Portuguese pastries are. They are egg tarts right? Now that you mention, the savoury pies do look like them. I'm gonna sound even more ignorant coz I don't know which country you come from. My bad my bad. But yes, Groupon seems to be taking the world by storm. They are almost everywhere. Thanx for your sweet comments as always, Richelle. =)

I love reading sincere comments and hearing your voice.

I reply to comments here or on your blog so don't forget to check back on replies! =)
