Coffee lovers, there is a new Starbucks Reserve Store in town. Starbucks Singapore just opened its 7th Reserve Store at Marina Bay Sands.

The Starbucks Reserve Store at MBS is also the first in Singapore to offer the rich coffee experience of the Siphon Brewing method. Coffee lovers will also be able to explore and sample other brewing methods with Starbucks Reserve Coffee such as the Clover brewer, the Chemex coffeemaker, the traditional Coffee Press and Pour-over, in addition to the usual hand-crafted coffee and tea beverages.

Do check out the new Starbucks Reserve Store at MBS. I must say that its the most beautiful Starbucks store in Singapore.
PS: It’s right outside the ice skating rink.

Wanted to spend a quiet day today but woke up seeing few messages that basically ruined my entire afternoon. OK lah. Not really ruined but basically things that I can do without. Anyway, whatever lah. Can’t be bothered.

Been thinking a lot lately. 36 years is not a short time. And honestly speaking, sometimes I wonder if I have another 36 years left in this life. Maybe I should stop wasting whatever time I have left and try something different. Maybe extreme sports. (PS: I just bought a GoPro Hero 5 Black as a present for myself. Lol)

So many adventures couldn’t happen today
So many songs we forgot to play
So many dreams swinging out of the blue
We let them come true

OK, maybe I’ve been listening to Forever Young too much lately. I guess when you get older, you can actually relate more to that song.
