House, Dempsey II

The fries look so good in this picture, don't they?

Yes, I had a second meal at House, Dempsey despite the first experience - I was invited for dinner at House, and could not quite suggest an alternative. Regardless, this invitation as an opportunity to sample something different from their menu; to give their kitchen another chance.

Nutiva Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil

It had been awhile since I finished my Artisana coconut oil, and I thought it was time for another jar since coconut oil is so highly beneficial to the body. Choosing another brand to try was not a difficult choice. I knew that I wanted to try Nutiva's coconut oil, as over the years many acquaintances had praised its taste. Further, the plastic container that Nutiva's coconut oil is packaged in does not contain BPA (see Nutiva's FAQ).

Beetroot chips

On another visit to Market Place, I was surprised to see the purple packet in the middle of the picture. It contains beetroot chips, by Thomas Chipman (the Australian brand). 

Like their sweet potato chips though, it is going for a pricey S$5.60 per 75g bag.

Shoe Review: Inov-8 Bare-X 180

A few months of anxious waiting turned into excitement when my Inov-8 Bare-X 180 shoes finally arrived in Singapore last month. I desperately needed a new pair of running shoes as the Nike Air Zoom Streak XC 2 was breaking down. As you can see in the picture below, a big patch of the sole on the forefoot was already smooth, and sole on the bottom half of the shoe had fallen off. I was afraid to sprint when the track was wet, and water would get in where the sole had fallen off.
