Collagen Hotpot with the girls

Life has been hectic recently, that explains the lack of posts on this blog.. Besides I've taken up my passion for baking and with the influx of assignments from school, I just don't have any more brain juice left for blogging. I guess a personal post would be something that is easier to write and more close to heart. I honestly do miss the times where I just jot down the bits and pieces of my life on my blog, without having any pressure to craft a high quality post. 

I think I've recently added Collagen hotpot into my list of all-time cravings. And since my girls are craving for it as well, we decided to head down for a collagen feast!! I swear it's really delicious and worth the money. Not just the money, but the waiting time as well. We reached there pretty early so there were seats, but I have ever queued 1 hour 30 min twice. I have to say it is really worth it. But I'll probably not queue more than that :/

Mandatory photo before we start our feast!!! (I'm craving for the soup as I'm typing this T_T)

OH! And I was telling them that I was really tempted to try the "jelly-like collagen" before it starts boiling and dissolving. I did try it out the other time, and let me describe the texture.. It feels like the layer of jelly fats between the meat and skin of the chicken. But with stronger chicken taste. I wouldn't say it's pleasant or very unpleasant.. quite weird since it's still cold, but if you are curious just give it a try ok? :D


The staff made us really happy and excited because they drew our faces which could be easily differentiated based on our hairstyles. Left is me, middle is Jessica with her "pointy hair" and Val with her short hair. SOOOO THOUGHTFUL T_T


This is what girls do when they meet up... OOTDs and selfies!!






Look at my shitty curls ): I want to perm my hair again soon!!!






Hahahaha Plaza sing was so crowded that day that I had to park the car all the way at the rooftop (Level 8) T_T So when Jessica & I made our way there to get the car, she was telling me, "Omg we have to take OOTD here!!" My very first #carparkOOTD hahaha. Too bad it turned out blur plus the lighting was real bad. 

Anywayyyy thanks girls for making my day!!! <3

Movie Review: Hotel Transylvania 2 (2015)

The one and only thing that attracted me to watch Hotel Transylvania 2 is this cute little boy, Dennis in the poster! Seriously, this cute character makes me go awwww in the movie. I haven't watched the first movie yet, but I thought that it wouldn't really affect my understanding of the story plot anyway. 

The movie started off with Mavis getting married with her human boyfriend, Johnny. And after a year, they have a son called Dennis. Nearing his 5th birthday, his granddad Dracula was worried that Dennis will not become a vampire if his fangs have not grown out by then. On the other hand, Mavis wanted to raise Dennis as a normal human kid and there were conflicting views between both parties. 



The limelight is definitely on Dennis as he looks really innocently cute. There's a few scenes where Dracula tried to give him a crash course on how to become a vampire. Including throwing him off a tall tower. And it was rather funny to see how Dracula is constantly frustrated over his son's innocent and cute temperament, and does not resemble a monster at all.




Ooohh and I really like the scene where Dennis said bla bla bla bla. 

I wouldn't mind rewatching the movie because of this adorable character. 



 
Hotel Transylvania 2 is a heart-warming sequel with consistently amusing moments and irresistibly cute scenes of Dennis. Some of the humor were cleverly done without going overboard. Although the story plot is ordinary and expected with no exciting twists, it's definitely a fun-filled comedy to enjoy. It probably has a better story plot than Minions, though I still prefer the latter. Just don't expect much from the movie unless you enjoy watching CUTE THINGS.

Ratings: 3.5/5
