Flowers In The Window @ Jalan Dhoby Johor Bahru

I've passed by Flowers In The Window numerous times before, and only after my dad told me they serve good beef noodles there, I stepped in. 

Cozy, relaxing, filled with dried flowers and plants, and retro stuff, this little space immediately reminded me of myself when I was young, because I used to press flowers and collect dried plants as decorations. 

Psst..this is what I came here for. 
The well-kept secret of the beef noodle that is almost equivalent to the famous one at Bukit Cagar.
The portion was generous. I've forgotten what the Bukit Cagar one tasted like, but I can say this one's good too, except that the beef chunks were a little tad bigger for my liking.  And it's a pity there was no soup. But all in all, I'd give it another go!

After that you can go for soft-serve and ice-cream up the lane. Love Jalan Dhoby!

MUJI Opening of Flagship Store @ Plaza Singapura

I think this is my favourite brand now. But only during sales.
MUJI opens its flagship store in Singapore, at Plaza Singapura. 
I took half a day off to check it out, something I rarely ever do.
Picture bombs!

There must've been an opening ceremony at the atrium.

Some exhibition at the atrium. 

I heard their skincare products are not bad. I have yet to try.

 I have always loved their kitchen/cookware. All so miniature.
One each please!

A special series.

This is what I actually came to see. Their exhibition. It really brings out the material obsession in you.

 This leather sofa is SGD$5990.00

Another special series.

Storage baskets.

Their customer consultation area. It's like Japanese IKEA.

They also offer embroidery services. There are many different designs to choose from on a booklet, ranging about $3-$5 per design. Alphabets too!

I have yet to try their food.

The queue to the cashier. You can't see the cashier from here.

So I came out empty-handed, except for these. Hehe. 
Oh ya, I forgotten about their stationery section which I absolutely love as well.
I will definitely go back! 

DIY House Number

Terrible me hor. No updates.

I proudly present what I made over the weekend. Couldn't believe it was so easy (hao lian)

Bought these from Daiso; the wooden letter rack and two sets of faux succulents.

I wanted to write the number free-hand but was worried I might screw it up. No matter how good you are, you still need a guide. So I printed the number in my favourite font and cut it out.

Traced the number cut-outs.

Started colouring.

Went a little off, but it's OK. Looks more handmade.

Cut a piece of styrofoam to fit into the rack.
And then Mod Podge-d the entire wooden rack.
After it is dried, the faux succulents went in.

Placed some double-sided foam tapes behind, and wa la!

I'll see if it can weather the weather.
