Hello hello everyone!
I was invited by Sample store to Giftopia last weekend and here's a summary of what happened during the weekends at the event!
One of the many booths at the event.
Beauty-Keeper is also very kind to gift the influencers an entire box of goodies to pamper us from head to toe!!! From shampoo to mask to collagen!!!! #Blessed
Vaniday also have a booth there where they are offering really affordable express manicures and I have my nails done by the very talented Tania from Cutieclesbyt !
I was the first one at the booth #kiasu HAHA but it's a smart move ok cox after that alot of people are queuing up for the manicure.
My new nails with my new phone case that my sister got for me!
There's also a booth which they offer temporary tattoos! I didn't get to try it though as the queue is pretty long after I'm done with my manicure.
Food catered by Branches Cafe!
I was invited for a cafe tasting but I've to turned it down cox of work commitments and I finally got to try it at the event and HOLYMAMA THEIR FOOD IS SO DAMN GOOD?!?!?! I love their mini red velvet! Don't see it so small ah, it's super duper rich in taste and good omg *__*
The squid ink mini burger bun also super yums! the patty is super tender and juicy one! /drooling/
Even my bf approves. (He's a really picky eater btw lol)
With my +1 for the day!
Thanks for helping me carry all the heavy bags! <3 And he specially went down to get me macarons while I was doing my manicure cox I said I was craving for them T____T
I haven't been blogging alot because there ain't lots of exciting things happening in my life right now LOL. I wanted to blog about the craftholic cafe but almost everything is out of stock except for the cake and parfaits :x So I can't really do a proper review on it... Hopefully I will have a new blog post up soon!!!

We arrived at about 1230pm and as you can see, the place is already pretty packed. The cafe is quite small, so it would be better if you call and make a reservation to guarantee a seat.
I actually read online somewhere that their service is bad, but we were greeted with a very friendly Japanese lady (She seems like a Japanese from her accent, or isit I'm just bias? lol) and it was a really nice experience there.
I would strongly recommend you to go during the lunch time as you can add on the drinks for just $3 for any mains purchase. Best thing? You can choose the most expensive drink at about $8 :3 #singaporean
Some of the mains on the menu.
I ordered the Buttermilk pancakes ($8.50) + iced fruit tea ($3.00 with the lunch promotion, if not it will be $7.90 for a cup) while my sister ordered the kyushu pancakes ($7.90) + Dorayaki smoothie ($3.00 with lunch promo, $8 w/o) Oh, and sorry to mention that there's a 10% service charge + 7% gst.
Both of the pancakes come with the wild honey sauce and fruit syrup, which complements really well with the pancakes. The whipped cream was super duper light, that it feels fat free lol! The buttermilk pancakes feel slightly sweeter then the kyushu one, but both tasted dense instead of fluffy. It's a totally different kind of pancakes like the one you have at Macdonalds.
Drinks wise, the iced fruit tea tasted like lemon tea, but they were pretty generous with the fruits though - kiwis, strawberries, lemon and apples. I had a sip of my sister's Dorayaki smoothie, it's super duper sweet and milky, highly recommended for someone that has an extremely sweet tooth.
Location wise, it is not very easy to find and we took a cab there from Novena. But actually it's just opposite la lol. Have to cross the overhead bridge and walk abit.
Overall experience: The pancakes here sort of tasted healthier of some sort? I will definitely be back to try some of their other pancakes creations! On a side note, they also sell the pancake flours, so if you're interested in making them at home, they do sell the flours ranging from $7 - $8+.

So the 純萃喝。chun cui he drinks has been in Singapore for more than a month now and it's still going OOS. For those that don't know what the hype is about, it's actually milk tea and latte that originates from Taiwan that looks like a shampoo bottle.
FINALLY GOT MY HANDS ON THEMMMMMM.
Apparently I heard there's 10 kind of different teas and latte under their branding, but their website only show 8.
However from what I heard from my friend who studied in Taiwan, Taiwanese do not find it nice at all. SURPRISE SURPRISE. I personally tried both and I find the milk tea just normal, the latte was smooth, but both to me, not worth the hype at all. It's nice la, just not so nice to the extend that I would go crazy about it. I would love to try other flavours though, maybe it's better than the milk tea hmmmm.
In the 2nd or 3rd week, my bf managed to source it from the 7-11 at Lavender at about 1-2am. So in this post, I'm going to share with you how to get your hands on these if you haven't got the chance to try it.
1.) Target 7-11 that operates 24h as they always do their restocking between 3am - 4am
According to one of their staff at their Bedok outlet, they told me the stocks always come in between that timing and there was once I set my alarm at 4am, the staff told me they were old left with latte. The milk tea was out of stock by 4am when the stocks came at 330am. WTF RIGHT?! Within 30 minutes at such ungodly hours and still sold out -_____-
2.) Call before you go down to the store to avoid disappointment.
Okay so now you know they do the restocking at 3am - 4am, it's not a GUARANTEE. So to avoid it being a wasted trip of walking down and get nothing, call the store again. You can google for the 7-11 no. easily. If the stocks is not in yet, ALWAYS ASK THEM WHETHER IF THEY KNOW WHEN THE DRINKS WILL BE RESTOCKED. If you're in luck and meet nice staffs, they will tell you, but a 60% chance you will stumbled upon a grumpy staff that tell you don't know don't know don't know x100 *roll eyes*
3.) Always click in the comment section of posts related to the drinks on Facebook pages.
Go to their main Facebook page and stalk the comment session and you will see 3 kinds of people there - People complaining that they can't find any stocks, people updating where have stocks and lastly, nice people that get extra bottles and selling at original prices.
God bless people like this. (But of course, if they are selling at the original price that is)
4.) Only if you're willing to pay - Carousell or Airfrov
As usual, people are buying to resell it on Carousell at a ridiculous price of $10 each.
Would you pay $10 for a bottle of milk tea?
You can also choose to download this app call Airfrov where you can request for your products overseas. You can also get other flavours of the milk tea/latte at about $4-$5 per bottle.
So what do you think about the Chun Cui He drinks? Leave a comment and let me know what you think!
