Captain’s log                                          Stardate: 62209.4 (Sept 22nd, 2016)

Incase you aren’t aware, there has been an increase number of halal cafes in Singapore recently. This is good if you wanna tag along with your Muslim friends or invite them to some of these cafes. So far I had tried few of them, and they offer quite awesome food with great ambience. I decided to share one of them.

Tucked away at the corner and located on the 2nd level in the heart of Arab Street, there’s a fancy theme cafe and boutique. Known as La Marelle Cafe & Boutique, is a French fantasy theme that comes in a cutest and rainbow decorations at every corner. A unique cafe that most couples will adore.

La Marelle served an all day breakfast sets, other than lunch and dinner, and a wide selective range of cakes and drinks at reasonably prices. The cafe is not really halal certified. But I understand that their suppliers are halal certified suppliers and most of their staff are actually Muslim. Good enough then =)

I recently dine there with my fiancee, and its my 3rd visit there (That’s how I  first met her. Hehe…) We had order a full set. I forgot what’s the name of it. But its one of the all day breakfast sets. A combination of sausages, scrambles eggs, mushrooms, and some veggies and bread. It comes in a basket, and the portion was huge. Its really delicious and worth every bite! The price is reasonable, not to mention. We did not try any of the cakes though. Maybe next time.

Here’s the meal. Quite appetizing isn’t it? You guys better try it rather than just drooling! =D

Service there was not bad. Really efficient and the staff there are friendly. Other than the great ambience, the place is clean, felt so welcoming and really had colourful atmosphere. Its really pink with whimsical art. The walls were display with tons of antique and cute stuff. Some place to the wall and some on the shelves. Plus, there’s free wifi. A perfect place to hang out, especially if you are a coffee lover. Cause this place got the brew you might need.

Other than drooling on the menu, the cafe also offers a wide inventory of unique and colourful stuff that you can purchase. From bags, phone cases, necklaces and stationary. For the ladies, you may be interested in some of these cute stuff.

The photos here will reveal to you all! =D

With such great food, wonderful atmosphere, excellent service, I would definitely come here again in the future. And to remind myself to try out the cakes on my next visit. Price is alright, so why not drop by again? 

Give it a try for those who have not. The address is at 25A Baghdad Street. Believe me, you won’t regret! =)

I will share more on halal cafes whenever I visit one =)

Toys, Games and Comics Convention!

The highly anticipated and most happening event of the year which brings together the pop culture ranging from the best in comics, toys, anime, manga and cosplay from the East and West is back again. The Singapore Toy Game and Comic Convention will delighted the fans in the range of the latest edition collectibles, exclusive works and assorted pop culture memorabilia. These include unique works from well-known artists from Singapore and around the region.

Not to mention, there’s even some old school, or some would say “legendary” toys and game consoles been sold at the various booths. So for those who are into antique stuff, these booths are a place for you. Some old school still are the coolest!

The event was held on the weekends from 10th – 11th Sept at Marine Bay Sands Expo & Convention Center. I only go for day 1 as I have to work the next day. One day is worth for me to spend and enjoy the day till sunset. And I had decided to cosplay as the futuristic dark knight himself. Batman Beyond. Mine is not from the animated series, but from Batman – Arkham Knight game, cause its armoured version.

I had first debut in it for last year’s STGCC. And you can say its a hit. Even scare myself when I see in the mirror while donning in it and told myself, “I’m so wicked cool! =D

I practically had done some minor adjustment to the suit. Adding some LED lights to the belt and patches more foam to the chest area just to make it look more “armoured.” I even make new gauntlets to replace the old ones. I feel like I’m Bruce Wayne repairing or modified his bat suit! =D

Finally, my work pays off, and I’m good to go! 

The day went really well. Or should I say, really awesome. I’ve met many DC or Justice League characters. Most commonly were Batman and Joker, with one of them is my good friend as the Nightmare Batman which was seen in Batman V Superman. I had tagged along with him throughout the day and it felt like Bruce Wayne and his successor Terry McGinnis work along side by side. The past and the future, together battling out those bad guys. hahaha! =D

Ultimately, the appearance of us as DC characters quickly forms as the first team of the Singapore’s Justice League. We were also invited to the retail’s DC Comics Super Heroes Cafe where we try out those mouth-watering nachos and fries. Best of all, its free for us Justice League! Thank you Mr John of DC Comics Super Heroes Cafe for sponsoring us. You are awesome! =D

Even superheroes need a break! Does it remind you of the ending scene in Avengers? =D

Here’s some of the awesome photos taken. Many thanks to my friends who have taken them! =)

Other than DC characters, there’s the Marvel ones. Spiderman were seen the most, and come in various styles other than its original appearance. Really impressive! Its hype nowadays, even in the cosplay community. As long you are happy and comfortable with it, you won’t see an issue to it.

Overall, its been an awesome day. With the Justice League gang and other cosplayers as well. Get to meet new ones too. 

Hope to see you all again in the future, and hopefully can maintain this league of ours. The team can never be where it is now without us. Onwards! =)
