The Sleeping Rhino @ Klapsons

Nothing beats having brunch on a Saturday morning after a good night's sleep. I was invited down for a brunch session over at The Sleeping Rhino which was a restaurant located at Klapsons the Boutique Hotel Singapore on a weekend a few weeks back and here's my post to share about it!

The place:

We were seated down promptly when arriving at about 12 in the afternoon on a Saturday. Here's the menu: 

We ordered the Crab Cake Benedict, Salmon Benedict and Homemade Pancakes (us being greedy as usual hehe)! 

Happy face because....FOOOOD.

The dishes were served pretty quickly and we couldn't wait to dig into this spread!

Our items! 

Crab Cake Benedict (bacon added on)

Salmon Benedict (with added sausage)

Tzu happily nomming!!

Overall, we loved the eggs benedict plates served to us! The eggs were perfectly poached and the portions were big and came with sauteed mushrooms, salad and crab cake/salmon (depending on which you picked). I felt that the crab cake could do with a little less floury taste in it but it was still pretty delicious together with the eggs. As for Tzu, he was very much satisfied with his plate of Salmon Benedict! (: 

Homemade Pancakes

The pancakes were my favourite. They were light, fluffy and tasted wonderful with the fruit and maple syrup. At the price of $12, I thought these were really awesome. If you like your pancakes fluffy and light (cause some people prefer to have a denser version to pancakes), this is definitely the place to be at. 


We left The Sleeping Rhino with our tummies full and happy that Saturday heh. Thank you so much to Klapsons for having us!

Tulles and embroidery.

My outfit for SGFW and well, what can I say? My love for tulle skirts is still going strong; I love them all - be it short, midi or maxi length. There's just something about tulle skirts that makes a girl feel like a princess. Paired it with an intricate embroidered crop top in black with my favourite pair of pearl earrings and some simple rings. Hair's done up by Cat - my stylist from Black Hair Salon who has never failed to bring out the best in my otherwise unruly hair! Truly thankful for her talented touch and this up-do was completed by her in a quick 45 minute time frame - I'm always gonna be amazed at how fast she works!

Singapore Fashion Week 2015: SGFW 2015

Some pictorial snippets of SGFW which was held about 4 weeks back - I finally finished fishing out and editing photos from my camera!

I had the chance to watch the Tex Saverio x Love, Bonito collection as well as the Benjamin Barker show, which were both held on the same day. 

A shot with some of the Love, Bonito social correspondents present at the show! (: 

Thoroughly enjoyed the Tex Saverio x Love, Bonito show with it's nature inspired graphics and unique cuts. Congratulations once more to Rachel and Viola from Love, Bonito! (: 

After, we headed off for a quick dinner and back to the tent to catch the Benjamin Barker show and Tzu joined in too. (Thank you Melvin from The Good Folks for the tickets!)


While waiting for the show to begin: SELFIES! 

I loved the menswear featured in the Benjamin Barker show! Vintage, quirky and preppy vibes all rolled into one great showcase. Tzu recently bought their leather shoes for work and he really loves them! (:

Ending off with some photos taken after the shows below,

Thank you Sherlyn for this pretty picture!

T'was a lovely Saturday evening spent - have an awesome week ahead everyone!

Love, Jo
