This blog is a platform to share what I love in life: food (eat), travel (play), photography (art) and life (thoughts and ideas). With passion for food, I share my foodie adventures and indulgences here. “There is no love sincerer than the love of food.”

Traveling makes us a better human being as we recognise the similarities and celebrate the differences of cultures between where we travel to and where we come from. “The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”

Photography do more than just capturing the best moments in our lives; they also help us tell our life stories. “Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”

  6. Katrina should be the winner instead of Belle in terms of appearance. If based on performance both are qualified as winners. I bet Katrina is really disappointed not being the champion. So close yet so far. Another disappointed contestant will be Joycelyn who thinks she will fair better than being 4th runner up (can really see the disappointment on her face when she was announced as 4th runner up). I guess the most disappointed contestant will be Vivien Yeo’s sister. Previously her sister was the winner but she did not even make it to the top 5,not even an award. Perhaps she is too over- confident thinking she will somehow follow her older sister’s footsteps.
