Porn's Sexy Thai Food Restaurant

I won $50 voucher from MamaLemon detergent, Pornsak Prajakwit is the celebrity endorser of MamaLemon and the voucher is to be used at his chain of casual Thai eateries in Singapore cheekily named Porn's Sexy Thai Food. You get a discount if you bring along a copy of his book Food Source based on his popular TV show.

I visited the outlet at Liang Seah Street, a popular foodie destination that houses pubs, Zhi Char coffee shops and homey restaurants. Liang Seah Street is conveniently located next to Bugis Junction, getting here by MRT is no problem.

I started the meal with lemongrass soda ($4.90) and mango salad ($6.90). 

The specialty here is Tom Yam Soup ($13.90) that I didn't order as its for min 2 people. I did order the prawn patties ($9.90) that were superb and green curry ($10.90). 

Nice hot & sticky glutinous rice with mango and coconut cream dessert ($6.90).

Enchanteur Perfumed Talcum Powder

I can't believe its still sold in stores, Enchanteur perfumed talcum powder for absorbing moisture and lightly perfuming your skin at the same time. I remember my grandma and aunts dusting this on in the afternoons, an old classic that's still relevant today. $6.30 for 2 x 125gm bottles of perfumed talc + 1 travel size free.

There are 3 scents:

Charming - typical soap scent of rose, muguet and cedar wood
Romantic - floral scent of Bulgarian roses and white jasmine (my fave!)
Alluring - fresher creamier scent of rose, iris and vanilla
Enticing - sweet scent of rose & magnolia (discontinued)
Beautiful - citrus, white musk & violet (discontinued)

Tai Parfait

Whoever came up with this is genius! The cone is actually traditional japanese red bean cake, you can choose other fillings as well like custard. Fill the top with ice-cream or just plain cream and fruits. Priced around $6 to $8 each, it makes a really substantial dessert.

The mouth is soo huge!

Polka Dots

Totally loving this B&W polka dot print. So much so I decided to make a day dress with it, one with butterfly sleeves and a matching striped jacket.

My thread spools have also gotten larger.

It's almost like quilting, cutting up big pieces of cloth into little pieces of cloth.

Even appliques, cloth on cloth.

Final Dress! The sleeves aren't as fluttery as I would like them and the skirt needs a layer of lining as well.

 Otherwise, it looks like a great combi.

Stella McCartney Autumn/Winter 2015/2016

Daughter of Sir Paul McCartney and established fashion designer, she became Creative Director of fashion house ChloĆ© before launching her own namesake brand Stella McCartney in 2001. A lifelong vegetarian and PETA supporter, none of her clothes/accessories are made from animal derived products.

She designs for real women and real women buy her clothes to make it part of their wardrobe. She also designs childrens wear seasonally, a trend other designers have picked up as well.

In 2004, she began collaborating with Adidas to create fashionable sportswear for women, unheard of in the industry before then. I always see new stuff every year under her name at Adidas.

Her current range of bags, named Falabella (after miniature horses). I think you can recognize it coz lotsa fashionistas spotted carrying these bags.
