Review: Holy Cow Creamery

Since I'm feeling *rather* free now, I shall do up a quick review of this new gem that has sprouted in Yishun -- Holy Cow Creamery

Took a quick OOTD and I'm really in love with the shirt dress. When I tried it on for the shoot for RunwayAE, I straight away told my boss that I wanted to keep it. hehee.

Really, it has taken Yishun long enough before something hipster actually popped up.. LOL Like a cafe or an ice cream parlour of some sorts. Even though we do have daily scoop somewhere on the outskirts of Yishun, well there's pretty nothing much in the neighbourhood itself. So yay!!! when I finally heard from B one day when there's a new ice cream parlour just opened here (:

It's located near to the Town Council/ old Yishun library at BLK 292. Not exactly near to where I stay but close enough, and probably the closest ice cream parlour I can find within 30min of travelling time.

We settled for a waffle with double scoop of ice cream ($10) with flavours of our choice : White chocolate macadamia & Salted gula melaka

My verdict: 
The two flavours actually tasted similar but I preferred the salted gula melaka for the hinge of saltiness present. A little more adventurous in its flavour although it can't match up with that of Creamier's. Not a fan of white chocolate but thankfully this wasn't too chocolate-y and well, things hardly ever go wrong with macadamia anyway!! But their ice creams are more on the milky side... so it's up to your personal preference. I'm fine with it personally (: The waffles wise, was really average, nothing to rave about.

Will definitely be back to try more flavours considering its convenience and the pricing (same as Creamier, cheaper than Sunday Folks which imo is really overrated) and would love to try more flavours!! Creamier still tops my chart for now. My friend told me that their brownies are nice so my next trip there may potentially to get my hands on their brownie! (and perhaps a drink?)

Another plus point about having an ice cream parlour within your neighbourhood is that we can actually go there barefaced with uncombed hair and sometimes our sleeping clothes HAHAHA

It's great to see Yishun finally slightly more happening, but if more ice cream shops were to sprout out in this area, Holy Cow will probably have to up its game!

SNDC Part 2

Okay now that my midterms have *just* ended, I am gonna attempt to try to clear my backlog a little while at the same time taking a break from all those piles of reading awaiting my attention... I've previously blogged about SNDC Part 1 over **HERE** and this is gonna be a continuation of it. Well, documenting memories down because I think this is most likely my last year in hall!

Quickly posting some of the other stuff that my date has done for me since then:

My god, I can't even remember when was the last time I had such a sumptuous breakfast for the fact that I can't even wake up. And actually I told my date to deliver the breakfast at 10am and he was so punctual that he arrive at my door 10am sharp when I had just pressed snooze on my alarm. LOL Avocados are my fav I've received it for SNDC, buaya and I stock up on them too. My fridge is like exclusively for avocados only it seems. HAHA. Definitely effort max!!!

Look. at. that. Craftholic :O!!!!
I guess this is nuff' said, the freshies this year has completely spoilt the market!!! So so lucky this year and I'm just so lucky every year I guess because my date last year was SUPER upz too?? :O

No way to say "NO" I will be crazy and I don't have a decent pic of my reply to him but I actually hung a 2 storey high banner replying "YES" to him that sadly got destroyed by the rain FML

Okay so the actual SNDC dinner itself is basically just a formal hall dinner, we didn't even have to go out on a movie date or whatever. So chill, guys, chill. (diff for other halls though!) Let the photos speak:

Current fav white dress to date c/o RunwayAE!

The Year 3s who're left in Block A (see the pathetic number of girls hahaha) Sorry too lazy to brighten the photo.

Queued so bloody long for the photobooth as usual but hey for the keepsake memory why not. So that sums up SNDC dating game in hall for me! Not sure if there's a fourth year to come but the last 3 years have been amazing. Especially when you're a senior HAHAHA

Btw I've been down with cough for near to 3 weeks now and it's so disruptive to my life sigh why can't it just go away already!!!

With only about 5 more weeks left till the end of semester, I really can't wait for the vacation to be here quickly. So so tired of this paper chase/rat race thingy. I like what I'm studying but I'm just sick of this routine already. Really need a getaway!

Been swamped with so much thoughts recently as well it hasn't been the best of the days I've had. Sometimes being honest to ourselves is the toughest thing to do. But it is so necessary. :(
