HCSE11/12!

When all words fail, our music speaks.

Meet the Miangs

Say hello to my awesome bestie. Though we aren't physically together, I know she'll always be there for me, ready to be my listening ear.

Crazy bunch of people

They say that distance makes the heart fonder, but living together under the same roof brought us closer together. We've had many bittersweet memories and I'm sure that I'll miss these people dearly.

My ever supporting family

These are the amazing people who will always love me unconditionally.

Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina

Sarajevo is the capital and largest city in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH). This country, in general, is a very interesting place as it is a place with diverse groups (Bosniaks, Croats, Serbs) and where religions (Muslims, Catholics and Orthodox Christians) co-exist peacefully. Something I found interesting was that there are 3 presidents in BiH - a Bosniak, a Serb and Croat. Each of them take turns to be in charge of the office for 8 months throughout their four-year-term. According to our guide in Mostar, politics here is very complicated, and understandably so because of the diversity and heterogeneity of the population.

Our bus from Mostar arrived at the bus station around 9pm, where our Airbnb host met us and drove us back to the apartment, which was on a hill near the old town. We were really grateful that the host sent us to our accommodation, if not we would have gotten lost hiking up the hill with our luggages and the weather in Sarajevo was much colder than Mostar's. (The apartment's also really nice, and I highly recommend it if you're looking for a place for 2-4 people in Sarajevo).

River Miljacka and the Latin Bridge (Latinska Ćuprija) that we crossed on the way to the old town.

The next morning, we headed to the old town for brunch and for some sightseeing. We had brunch at a little bistro called The Epicentrum. One thing that we struggled with was that people here smoked a lot, even indoors, so I would recommend dining in an alfresco setting (although people also smoke outside) if the weather allows for it. I ordered a flat white (it was on the menu!) and the waiter looked at me with a puzzled look and asked me what that was. Well, I managed to get my flat white in the end, and it was pretty fragrant, albeit a little on the strong side. My main dish was a beef and eggplant risotto and I shared a vegetable omelette with W, who ordered a plate of pasta. The omelette was especially good. Our meal - 2 coffees, 2 mains and 1 omelette - cost us 27KM (~€13.5), which is much cheaper than what you'd get in other parts of Europe.

100% accurate poster in the bistro.

Next up on our agenda is the chill and roam around the old town. Near to the river was the spot where the famous Sarajevo Assassination took place in 1914. It was this event that led to Austro-Hungary issuing an ultimatum to the King of Serbia, which was partially rejected, thereby directly leading to WWI.


Besides WWI, Sarajevo was also involved in the Yugoslavian War and is the city that had experienced the longest siege (almost 4 years!) in modern warfare. It was pretty sobering to see the signs of the war that lingered till today. For example, in the picture below, bullet holes can be seen on the Eternal Flame memorial, which was dedicated to the military and civilian victims of WWII.

Ruins of Taslihan (an inn from the Ottoman period) on the left and the Eternal Flame on the right.

Another thing that I found interesting about Sarajevo is that due to its heterogeneous population, you can see both cathedrals and mosques in the city. Well, you see this phenomenon back home in Malaysia/Singapore too, but it's my first time seeing this in Europe. (BiH is the first European country I have visited that has a significant Muslim population)

The Sarajevo Cathedral on the left, and the ___ Mosque on the right.

Sarajevo's history is a difficult one, but there are also many other amazing things that the locals and tourists would enjoy. The more lighthearted part of my day was walking along the streets window shopping (I really wanted to get some souvenirs! But my mum insisted that I buy practical things that are not magnets and keychains). Some of the souvenirs look rather Turkish, like the Nazar blue eye charm, the purses and the tea sets. More unorthodox ones include pens that are made of bullet shells, which looked like real ones used during the war.

In the end, I didn't really buy anything and we rested at a cafe to try some Bosnian coffee! Coffee and tea cost 2KM each (~€1). The coffee was a bit on the strong side, but nevertheless, very fragrant. The Turkish apple tea, on the other hand, tasted like warm apple juice with a hint of black tea. I'm not too sure why they placed a sugar cube at the side, because the tea was already very sweet. Being an apple juice lover, I liked it!

Brace yourselves, winter is coming! (As indicated by the barren trees in the old town)

At this point of time we were both not feeling too well, and we were quite sick of grilled food, but there's no way we'd leave the Balkans without trying ćevapi/ćevapčići. So we had dinner at Željo 2 in the old town, which I read online that is a busy diner which serves the best ćevapi in Sarajevo (and some say the world). I wouldn't know if it's the best, since it's the only time we had ćevapi. The flatbread was a little on the drier side, but the combination of the sausages and onions tasted pretty good. We called it a day after dinner.

Ćevapi!
The next morning, we had brunch back at The Epicentrum (no flat white this time...) and then headed back to the Airbnb, where we met our host who sent us back to the airport for a small fee. We took an Air Serbia flight and transited at Belgrade. We had to be at the boarding gate an hour earlier in Belgrade and security checks were pretty tight, probably due to what had happened in Paris last Friday. We were starving but sandwich was provided on the first (shorter) flight and a sumptuous dinner was provided for our flight back to chilly Copenhagen, which concluded our adventure to the Balkans :)

Norway Days 1-2

Despite being one of the most expensive countries in the world, Norway is really breathtaking and you should visit it once in your lifetime. We initially planned this as a hiking trip to Trolltunga, but our plans fell through because we booked a round trip flight from Oslo (should've made it an open jaw ticket - fly to Oslo and out from Bergen) and it was hard to get around using public transport. Renting a car would be way out of our budget. It definitely wasn't an easy trip to plan and we couldn't do what we wanted, but I'm really glad that everything turned out well (so worth it!).

Anyway, so here's our itinerary (24/9/2015 - 27/9/2015):
Note: Traveler's tip in red.


Day 1, 24 Sept 2015:
1415-1525 Flight from Copenhagen, Norwegian Airlines
Upon arrival, we withdrew 1000NOK from the ATM (~S$165, which is obviously not enough for 4 days, I don't know what we were thinking). Then we boarded a train to the city center, Oslo S, which cost 90NOK (~S$15). If you were to take the express train (Flytoget), that would be 180NOK per person (~$30).
After arriving at our Airbnb which was a short walk away from Oslo S, we settled down, had some instant noodles, and left for some sightseeing. Our Airbnb was great as it was within walking distance to most of the main sights, and it is a nice and clean apartment suitable for 2-4 people.

Places that we visited: Oslo Cathedral, Arkeshus Fortress, Oslo Havn (Harbour), The Nobel Peace Center, City Hall, National Theatre, University of Oslo (eduroam ftw) and the Royal Palace.

Oslo Cathedral

View from Oslo Havn

Fun fact: the Noble Peace Prize is the only prize not presented in Stockholm, but in the Nobel Peace Center in Oslo.


Dinner: McDonalds (from the Super Deal menu, of course): MacDouble 20NOK and chicken bacon burger 25NOK.
At least now we can say that we ate from the 2nd most expensive McDonalds in the world, according to the Big Mac Index. The most expensive country is Switzerland, last I checked. I think Norway was at the top for a few years.


Day 2, 25 Sept 2015: Norway in a Nutshell Tour (well kinda)
It's pretty expensive if you were to book the tour from the official website, so we assembled our own tour, by following the timetable available on the website. You can get train tickets for half price (minipris) if you book in advance and you need not print the tickets, just save it in your smartphone or tablet and show it to the conductor when s/he checks.

0625-1148 Oslo-Myrdal train
We woke up in the wee hours of the morning to catch our train out of Oslo. It was still dark outside but the streets were pretty well lit so it was alright, but it was really cold. Our train was delayed slightly but it reached Myrdal on time so all is well. The train was quite new and the seats had decent leg space (more than a regular economy flight), but I'm 158cm and leg space doesn't really matter to me. For travellers with luggages and backpacks, the train also had an overhead compartment enough to fit a medium-sized luggage. There is also a café onboard so you don't need to worry about getting hungry. A coffee costs 29NOK and is 5NOK for subsequent refills.

The morning view was lovely as we passed by yellowish-green woods (autumn ftw), green meadows and pastures, and barnhouses. It was sunny but the temperature a outside was 8-9°C. After a few hours (if I recall correctly, after we passed Geilo), it started getting colder (4-5°C) and the views around us changed to misty snow-covered mountains in the distance. It was beautiful but I don't wanna try going outside. Not when all i had was a thin jacket suitable to double-digit temperatures.

The first thing I did when we alighted at Myrdal, was to open my luggage and get one extra jacket to put on. It was cold (waiting indoors with a hot drink is definitely an option) and you can see snowy mountains in the distance. Myrdal station is pretty small but it has a café for those who wanna grab a bite, and a souvenir shop.

All ready to board the Flåmsbana in Myrdal :)

1213-1310 Flåm Railway! (Myrdal-Flåm train)
A vintage, forest green train pulled up at the station and we boarded it, in hopes that we'll get a good seat (on the left, as many websites recommended. So if you're going the other way from Flåm to Myrdal, the best seats on the right. But honestly it didn't matter so much because the train wasn't full and we could always scoot to the other side to take pictures). The train makes a couple of stops, including one longer one at the Kjosfossen waterfall, where you can take photos on a platform.

Why is the Flåm line so special?
1. It is has one of the steepest tracks in the world. The train starts at the top of the mountains and then descends to the valleys.
2. The view is so beautiful, it feels unreal.
Throughout the journey I had my eyes plastered at the scenery. It is really, really amazing. Waterfalls at a distance, with clear waters in the stream next to the railway, greenery in the valleys etc. All I can say is that some people call the Flåm line the most beautiful train line in the world and it is not without reasons, so GO FOR IT! YOU WILL NOT REGRET THIS!
(Well, I was slightly annoyed/angered by a group of tourists who slept through the entire journey. At the end of the trip, one even had the cheek to ask what was the point of taking such a 'boring' train ride. I can assure you that they are the exception though.)

1320-1520 Flåm-Gudvagen Ferry
This two-hour long ferry cost us 305NOK (~S$50) each for one way (gasps). It was a cloudy day with slight drizzle so the view was not as beautiful as it could've been on a sunny day. Nevertheless, the fjords were a beautiful sight! An aunty in her 60s (from Singapore) recognised our accent immediately and asked if we were from Malaysia. She was travelling with her son and daughter-in-law, who were at the top deck and she didn't wanna go up there (it was cold and slightly drizzly), so she started chatting with us. We talked about how expensive it is to be here, how lucky we were to have parents who could support us (since ringgit was at an all time low) and just about Singapore in general. Feels quite like home :') She also introduced us to instant rice that's packed into teabags so you only have to boil it, then pour it out from the bag (note-to-self to find those amazing things).

Upon arriving at Gudvangen, we took a bus to the nearest town, Voss. A ticket costs 110NOK (~S$18) and the journey takes about an hour and a half. The bus will also pass by a crazy winding road (just imagine, if you will, a levelled-up version of San Francisco's Lombard Street), and there will be a waterfall on your left. Unfortunately, I don't have a good photo of the waterfall because I was seated on the right.

View from the bus en route to Voss.
In Voss, you can catch a night train back to Oslo or to Bergen. Or you could spend the night in Voss like we did (we stayed for two nights since the Bergen line was schedules to be closed for maintenance work the next day). Staying in Voss was a great decision! It was a beautiful little town with a scenic lake in the middle and snowy mountains in the distance. We were also lucky enough to catch Smalahovesleppet, the Sheep's Head Festival held in autumn every year. I'll elaborate more on that in my next post!

Lots of information to take in here, so I'll end with a map of the places that I've been to on this day!

Australia Day 2: Phillip Island

The day before, we purchased tickets to visit Phillip Island on Saturday (Day 2 of my Australia trip) from a Grand City Tours, a Chinese tour company. We also got $5 off per person when we followed the company on WeChat (oh the perks of learning Mandarin). The bus left around noon, so we headed to town to grab light lunch and off we go to Phillip Island.

Before I elaborate more on the one day trip, let me tell you about hands down the BEST SUSHI HANDROLLS I HAVE EVER HAD IN MY LIFE. We got them from a small, cozy Japanese family restaurant along the alley next to H&M and ordered two rolls each. I had the soft-shell crab (see photo below) and avocado salmon. Anything with soft-shell crab tastes good to me and the avocado salmon was more traditional, but with a twist - avocado. The flavours of the salmon sashimi and avocado blended nicely and the handroll melts in your mouth. This, along with a warm drink in the chilly autumn weather, would make a light but nice meal.

After gobbling down our lunch, we went to the designated pick-up point for the bus. The bus ride to Phillip Island took a couple of hours. In no time, we arrived at our first stop - Maru Koala and Animal Park.


The first thing we did was to buy a $2 bowl of dried grass, which we can use to feed the animals in the park. The most exciting thing was being inside the kangaroo enclosure (despite seeing kangaroo poo everywhere), where we got to feed and pet the animals. Amongst the twenty-odd kangaroos in Maru, there were two albino ones. At first, I was afraid to approach the larger kangaroos, so we started feeding the smaller ones. But after warming up to the gentle creatures, we managed to feed and pet a few of the larger ones too (including one of the albinos, which was sleeping).

Omnomnomnom.

After a short stop in Maru, we headed to Pannys Phillip Island Chocolate Factory. The admission was not included in the tour package and we didn't feel like heading into the factory to see how chocolate is manufactured, so instead, we went straight to the cafe and ordered a hot chocolate and an iced chocolate.


Lastly, we went to the Penguin Parade (photography is prohibited, so I don't have any photos for this). After a quick dinner, we went outdoors (it was super windy and chilly) to await the return of the penguins. The penguins here are the Little Penguins (Eudyptula minor), the smallest penguin species in the world. The boardwalks in the park are cleverly designed so that we can see the penguins clearly, but visitors are unable to touch them. Soon enough, the penguins started wading in from the sea up to the beach and their burrows. They're only about 30cm in height and they are so adorable! So according to the staff there, the male penguins are out foraging and they come back after a day or as long as a week. Their female partners wait anxiously at the entrance of their burrows and the call out to their mates eagerly. When a male penguin find his partner, they will hug and dance around each other, which is the cutest thing ever! We were lucky to see a couple of penguins reunite. Later, in the bus on the way back, our tour guide told us (in Mandarin), that the staff there monitor the number of penguins that return each day. There were more than 1300 penguins that returned on the day we were there. I feel really heartened by the ongoing conservation efforts (which also includes knitting little jumpers for oiled penguins, to "prevent them from preening and swallowing the toxic oil before they are washed and the oil removed by staff"), every little effort counts!

We ended off the night with supper at Chinatown and gelato at Jauja, where we bumped into another cousin of ours who was visiting (what a small world!). I ordered the raspberry white chocolate ice cream and it was pretty good, especially in the chilly weather. After chatting for a while, we went back home, and that concluded our tiring day out.

Never say no to ice-cream, even when it's barely 20℃ outside.

Australia Day 1: Melbourne

Haven't had the time to update about last month's trip to Australia due to finals. So here it is (after a long hiatus)!

I went to Australia in Week 13 of the semester, the last week of school. I didn't tell many, only a few close friends. But my friends soon found out via Instagram and I've been receiving enraged concerned messages from my peers (ie "ZHERMS WHY ARE YOU IN AUS? DON'T YOU HAVE FINALS? YOU NEED TO STOP YOLO-ING"). For those who know, I had a tough semester, with two labs and an independent study module and a physics module (good lord), and on top of that, many other commitments and activities. They all ended by Week 13 so I found myself scooting off to Sydney to attend my godbrother's graduation. And before that, why not drop by Melbourne since my cousins are there? :)

My 9pm Jetstar flight from Singapore Changi Airport arrived at the Melbourne Tullamarine Airport at 7am. Upon collecting my luggage, I boarded the Skybus ($18) which brought me to Southern Cross Terminal in the city. At this point I realised that transport in Melbourne is quite expensive compared to Singapore's. I also realised that I had no way whatsoever to contact my cousins who were on the way to pick me up. Thankfully the nearby Hungry Jack (aka Burger King) had free WiFi and a few moments later, I was on my way to my first destination - breakfast.




After one long tiring overnight flight, of course I was starving. Only one thing was on my mind - Eggs Benedict. Please please please give me good Eggs Ben for breakfast. Breakfast was at a humble and cozy café, Di Bella Coffee, with two of my hostesses - my cousin Madeline and her friend Amanda. When in Melbourne, drink coffee, right? So despite not being coffee drinkers, we ordered a cuppa, which I finished in the end. The coffee (not being specific because we really didn't know what we ordered) was amazing and it's aroma was on point. Yum. The hot chocolate, on the other hand, was a perfect blend of rich creamy cocoa. And no matter where I went, I had to resist the urge to get hot or iced chocolate and order coffee instead.

Hot chocolate

We ordered two mains - a BLT sandwich and poached eggs on hashbrowns (I can't recall what it's called on the menu though). Never in my life have I had such thick, juicy bacons, and the eggs on the hashbrown were poached to perfection (see Instagram video for evidence). That's it - I thought to myself - my first meal in Melbourne and it has already spoilt Singapore cafe food for me. The ingredients were so fresh and the portions were generous. But the most important thing is, everything tastes so good.

A video posted by Zher Min (@zherms_) on


BLT on the left, poached eggs on the right.
In the end, none was left, but they all tasted right.

Next stop - Melbourne city! We took a tram towards the city (yay, you don't see trams in Singapore). Upon tapping my Myke card (aka Melbourne ezlink), more than $3 was deducted. I made a mental note not to complain about transport fares upon returning to Singapore. The good thing is, transport fares are capped around $7 per day (about two rides). We walked past Federation Square and along the Yarra. Lion King, the musical, was in town! I was quite excited about it but due to time constraints I wasn't able to watch it.

The beautiful Yarra River


Our first stop was the Duty Free Outlet, where I bought some Lindt chocolates and a pair of boots from Sketchers ($39). The boots are the best buy of the day because I thought I wouldn't be able to find anything suitable for me in Australia (being petite, I usually can't find clothes or shoes my size). Plus, the boots will be a comfortable addition to my wardrobe when I'm in Copenhagen later this year. After a while, we headed back to the city centre and after some shopping in the only but biggest H&M store, we went for lunch and headed home, excited for the Phillips Island excursion the next day.

Home is Where the Heart is

Finally back in Penang after a few hectic weeks in Singapore. It's the time to relax, chill and unwind. I'm just gonna enjoy the amazing food, and the peace and serenity here.

Miam Miam @ Westgate // Paris Baguette @ Jem®

HM and I decided to meet on a Saturday evening for dinner, desserts and shopping! We took 183 from school and took the train to Jurong East from Clementi. Then only we realised that 183 goes straight to Jurong East #fail. Anyway, Jurong East is a nice place because there are quite a few malls within walking distance. Before deciding on a place to eat, we walked to and fro Westgate and JEM before deciding on Miam Miam Westgate.

I've always wanted to try Miam Miam because it sounds really interesting - French and Japanese fusion cuisine sounds really lovely. There wasn't a queue then as we went at 5.30pm, before the dinner crowd sets in. We quickly settled for two items on the menu (because we were super hungry): Riz Au Curry and Miam Miam Spaghetti. We didn't have to wait too long for the food (yay) because there weren't many people in the restaurant at that time.

Riz Au Curry ($14.80)
As two avid egg lovers, HM and I couldn't contain our excitement when the curry rice arrived. The egg was perfect - not too raw, not too cooked. The yolk flowed onto the Japanese curry when we cut it open, adding flavour to the already fragrant rice. The frankfurters were juicy and soft, albeit a little on the salty side. In short, a tasty dish, but a little salty and oily.

Miam Miam Spahetti ($15.90)
The spaghetti's not bad but a little oily and a little too dry, making it the less preferred dish of the meal (for me). All in all, it was a decent meal but given the price, I wouldn't say it's very worth it.

We wanted to order some desserts (note-to-self: gonna try their soufflés next time, they look pretty good), but in the end we decided to go somewhere less pricey for desserts because we've both spent a lot of money that week :P

Next, we went to Paris Baguette for some desserts because I haven't tried their famous royal pudding. Paris Baguette, according to HM, originated from South Korea (not France!) and it's really common in South Korea (like Starbucks/Coffee Bean). While queuing, I was really tempted to get some of their pastries (maybe next time!) but I decided against it. In the end, I got an original Royal Pudding, partially because there were so many flavours I didn't know what to get, and also because I've always had a preference for original stuff.

Royal Pudding ($4.00)
Reasons why I fell in love with the Royal Pudding:
1. It melts upon contact with your tongue
2. It is super milky but not too sweet (before mixing with the caramel)
3. It is really smooth and light

HM prefers digging to the bottom to mix the caramel with the pudding, but I prefer the top white part as it is. Regardless, this will not be the last time I'm having this and perhaps next time I can try the other flavours :)

Cups N Canvas

HX, T and I decided to celebrate S's birthday at Cups N Canvas after I returned to Singapore from Penang. T was the one who invited S, but S had already suspected that HX and I will be there (smart girl!). HX and I headed there earlier to chope seats and surprise her, which isn't a really good plan considering both of us got lost (twice in a row) while walking to Wimbly Lu a few months ago. But Cups N Canvas is much easier to find, so we survived!

Cups N Canvas is located a short walk away from Little India MRT station. It is both a cafe and an art space so patrons can paint and have coffee at the same time! Paintings on sale decorated the cafe, giving it a cosy and artsy ambience. Spending a lazy afternoon here sipping coffee, having desserts and watching people paint could be really therapeutic and lovely.

We took the high seats by the window. T told us that they were on the way, so we ordered 3 dishes and 2 drinks because the dishes take about 15-20 minutes to prepare (according to the menu). Our food came earlier than that though (yay!), so we patiently waited for the birthday girl (and her escort), for another 10 minutes or so. HX wore her shades so that S wouldn't spot her and I simply looked towards the wall as my back was against the front of the cafe. When they arrived, T sat beside me immediately while S strolled towards the back of the restaurant and nearly sat at another table with 2 seats. The 3 of us laughed as S turned around, confused.

Hot Chocolate Canvas, Sweet Potato Latte, Vermillion Prawn Pasta
HX ordered a Cold Chocolate Canvas while I ordered a hot one. We both preferred the Hot Chocolate Canvas because it is richer; the cold version is not bad - it's thick as well, but tastes slightly diluter compared to its hot counterpart. T ordered a Sweet Potato Latte, one of the more interesting items on the menu. It has a really nice lilac colour and it has a nice, sweet fragrance to it. It was fresh and interesting, but a little too sweet for my liking.

Blanc Bacon, Vermillion Prawn
HX and I shared the Vermillion Prawn (Pasta) and Blanc Bacon (Pasta) while S had Fish N Chips.
Fun fact about HX 1: she doesn't take fish - except dory fillet
Fun fact about HX 2: she doesn't take tomato - unless you can't see tomato slices in the dish (like ketchup)
I liked the Blanc Bacon. It was very creamy and the bacon tastes heavenly. The Vermillion Prawn was nice, but rather ordinary. The cucumber was a fine touch to the whole dish, though! The fish fillet was soft and the chips were really addictive (crunchy and not too salty!).



After the meal, we took some photos in the back alley (looks like a good place to film fight scenes) and then walked to Orchard Central (yes, it's that close to town!) for some desserts.

Back alley selfie ;)
All in all, I think Cups N Canvas has the best cafe mains and the one of the best hot chocolate I've had so far. I'll definitely be back (to try their desserts as well)! Do consider coming here for a nice meal with friends :)

Hello :)

Hi there! This personal blog will document my journey as a glutton an avid food lover. It will include my foodie adventures in cafes and restaurants, my quest to learn how to cook/bake/be a domestic goddess (coughcough) and my travel escapades (after all, what is globetrotting without trying the local delicacies, yes?). I'll try my very best to keep this blog alive (eherm, by going on more food trails and frequently treating myself to good food), and till then, I hope you enjoy :)
