Quick Update :)

Hello!

Just a short note to let anyone who’s still dropping by this site know that this blog is still not dead yet! PC is on its way so I reckon the next foodie post will be up in a couple of weeks~

Anyway, I’ll be heading to Korea and USA in early May. Anyone keen on purchasing any bags/accessories/cosmetics from those countries? Particularly Kate Spade and Coach from the States. Email me at qiuyi_ong@hotmail.com for any enquiries!

Till then, bye! Have a great week ahead, eat well and be happy! 🙂

Last month’s spree was a success (I even had a request to bring in 2 boxes of Pierre Hermé’s macarons!) so I’m organising another one for the month of April. As usual, this is going to be a London spree for bags and accessories~ Brands I particularly like to get are Cath Kidston, Chanel, Goyard, Hermès, and Longchamp. Of course, any other brand you like is possible too! Just let me know 🙂

Besides the common brands, I’ll also be taking pre-orders for bags by Victoria Beckham. I think you can’t get this in Singapore yet so this is highly exclusive! Her debut bag collection appears to be a must-have fashion accessory cuz it sold out within hours (just google and you’ll see)! Structured totes and chain-strap clutches come in crocodile, buffalo and calfskin rendered in a tight colour palette of black, navy, taupe and blush. You can refer to her website for the full range. According to the newsletter I received from Harrods, the price is set to be around £1,195.

Ok, bags aside, I’m interested to take orders for a couple of Nespresso coffee machines too. Either you already know of this or you don’t so I won’t elaborate on how fantastic this gorgeous piece of machine is or how popular it is among coffee drinkers in Switzerland and all over Europe. Personally, I love the CitiZ range the most cuz it’s such a neat and cool centrepiece to have at home. Anyway, prices will be more than $100 cheaper than the retail prices in Singapore so it’s definitely a good deal!

Here are the nitty-gritty if you are keen to participate in the spree:

Email me at qiuyi_ong@hotmail.com with the brand and model number, and I’ll quote you a price within 24 hours.

Fixed exchange rate: GBP £1 = SGD $2.30
However, I will need to collect topups if my credit card is charged at a higher rate.

What’s included: whatever is given upon purchase of item, i.e. receipt, paper bag, original box and whatnot. 100% authenticity guaranteed!

Hello! How has your week been? Mine’s great, I just came back from Zurich and have been happily enjoying some ‘me’ time ever since. Anyway, I’ve decided to take a short break from blogging (not that I’ve stopped eating.. never that, hee) for about a week 🙂

In the meantime, here’s an invite to join in a London spree for bags and accessories! You know what, I’d love to hold a spree for Pierre Hermé’s macarons but that seems pretty suicidal since they are so delicate and fragile. Oh well.. Bags and accessories it is then! Details below for your reading pleasure~

Merry merry Christmas, guys and girls!! =)

Today being a day of giving and sharing, I thought it’s apt that I launch a pilot test of this new pet project of mine. My Random ShopSpace is (hopefully) going to be a regular feature on this blog, maybe about twice per month. As regular readers may know, I travel quite often and many a time, I’m amazed that there are so so many delicious food and interesting stuff overseas that one can never find in Singapore.

And so, MRSS will be a platform for me to bring in some of these items to share with all of you! Since this is a random shop space, there’s no limit to the type of items I’ll showcase. They can range from food, accessories, food, homeware, food, clothes, yada yada. You get the idea =) Or even better, tell me what you would like from a particular country and I’ll do my best!

Coming Monday, I’ll be in Japan so let’s start off with something that’s highly popular among Singaporeans: Shiroi Koibito (白い恋人) cookies! Every year during the Isetan Hokkaido Fair, these cookies will usually be snapped up in an instant. That’s how good these cookies are! Imagine, soft creamy white or dark chocolate sandwiched between light and crispy “langue de chat” cookies~ Now it’s your chance to get your hands on them! Just in time as a great gift for friends or as a little something for the host of that new year party you are attending =)

24 Pieces of White Chocolates in a Box

 Details (boring but important, haha):

Item description: 24 pieces of White Chocolate (pic above) or 24 pieces of mixed (12 White & 12 Dark, pic below). You can order as many boxes as you want, of course.

Price: S$40 per box (24 pieces).

Payment: In full upon confirmation. Don’t worry, a full refund will be given if I’m unable to get the chocolates!

Deadline: Once I get enough orders or 26th Decemeber 2010, 11.59pm. Yes, that’s tomorrow!

Collection: 29th December 2010 (Wednesday), 12pm at City Hall MRT Station.

Ok, if you are interested, drop me an email with your orders at qiuyi_ong@hotmail.com =) I’ll reply within 24hours.

24 Pieces of White and Dark Chocolates in a Box

Speaking of which, do you know that these cookies are so popular in Hokkaido that there’s a Shiroi Koibito Park in Sapporo? I was actually there in 2007 and it was awesome, a theme park-like wonderland for the sweet toothed! Here are some of the photos I managed to dig out. Enjoy! =)

This is funny cuz I have to crop myself out of the photo! Still can see a little of my right arm, haha.

I think I wasn’t very into food that time cuz I didn’t take much photos of the chocolates. This is the cutest pic I can find, LOL.
