Woke up with a terrible headache and sore throat two days ago but I still met Noob for brunch at Hatched for our biannual meet up. Haha just so you know, his real name is Jian Jun but I always call him Noob. We go a long way back in JC 🙂 I took a cab there since it was raining and I wasn’t feeling well. The most epic thing happened. The taxi driver forgot to switch on the meter, and I did not have cash with me. So I could only pay with NETS but the NETS machine is connected to the meter. Yeap, always happens to me. I had to wait for Noob to rescue me. Haha thankfully it wasn’t some angsty taxi uncle.
Was first greeted by a huge black board with cute chalk scribblings when I first stepped into the cozy cafe.
I ordered Usual Suspects – Two eggs (my style), choice of ham, bacon or sausage, sauteed potatoes, toast and baked beans served with coffee or tea. $15
I love my eggs scrambled! I love the toast the most! It was white, fluffy, and chewy kinda toast. Sorry I left it out of the picture haha ‘cos it looks just like a piece of white bread. But it tasted AH-MAZ-ING.
Sauteed potatoes that were a bit too hard and tasteless for my liking.
A sick looking me with my brunch.
Noob had The Designer – Omelette with Tomatoes, Mushroom and Cheese. $11
Everything there is all about eggs! Even the salt and pepper shakers looked something like this:
After a satisfying brunch at Hatched, we walked two bus stops down to Serene Centre for some good o’ home made ice cream at Island Creamery! Island Creamery is an ice cream parlour that prides itself in producing ice cream with a touch of local flavour. They have flavours like Bandung (ya the pink rose syrup and milk drink), Teh Terik and Chendol.
Pulut Hitam and Nutella ice cream! I remember a scoop of ice cream there used to cost $2.80 but now it’s $3.20.
I also bought home a tub of Cookies & Cream ice cream for my sister, Kay. She lovessss it and would always bug me to buy whenever I’m around that area. My favourite flavours at Island Creamery are:
2) Cookies & Cream
If you have never tried Island Creamery, you totally should! 🙂 It reminds me of my old JC days where some of my friends and I would make a trip down after school just to enjoy some good ice cream and chillax. In the picture, behind me is a wall filled with photographs of memories many students and people shared at Island Creamery. I guess that’s what makes people revisit the place over and over again.

So my body has decided to throw in the towel and break down on me hurhur. I am bugged by a terrible sore throat, irregular fever and running nose. I hate falling sick because I can’t go out and and I’ve missed a few appointments. I’ve been sleeping at home for the past few days, I went to work yesterday though but was feeling horrible the whole time. Just hope I’ll get better soon, throbbing headache begone!
