Twilight Series

Ok, I'll admit it, I'm back to reading teenage story books again. And this time, I'm in a frenzy over Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series. All together 4 books in the series of a love story between a vampine and a human girl. I must say, it's been a while since I read love stories, and cheesy as it may sound, I'm kinda hooked on it at the moment :)

For those who might not know, there is also a version from the vampire Edward Cullen's point of view title Midnight Sun. The version is free for download, and may never be releases as a novel. Click here to download the pdf version. Note that this is a draft copy from the author, and there is no ending to the story to add to your frustration.

As always. The book is better then the movie it self. So if you have time, all 4 books are available from the National Library of Singapore, but a reservation seems to be the only way to get a hold of them. At S$1.55 per reservation, 4 books will cost you less then S$10, which is well worth the same amount if you spend it watching the movie instead (which incidently, might put you to sleep!)

Enjoy! I need to change my blog manner to Midnight Sun when I am free :P

Nice Poem

Can't remember where I found this poem, but I just really like it a lot :)

Quiet nights of quiet stars, quiet chords from my guitar
Floating in the silence that surrounds us
Quiet thoughts and quiet dreams, quiet walks by quiet streams, and a window looking on the mountains and the sea.
How lovely! this is where I want to be.
Here, with you so close to me, untill the final flicker of lifes ember.
I who was lost and lonely, believing life was only
A bitter tragic joke, have found with you
The meaning of existence oh, my love.

Provence Bakery and Cafe

Today I'd like to share with you one of my favourite bakery in Singapore, Proverence Bakery and Cafe, at Holland Village.

I chance upon this shop about 6 months ago while stopping for dinner at Holland Village. I wanted to grab some bun before dinner, and happen to walk into this wonderful bakery store. It was jam packed with people, and from time to time, fresh buns where being brought out, and customer were just going nuts over them. I bough my first Blueberry Cream Cheese bun from them for S$1.60 fresh out of the oven, and ate it there and then. After the first bite, I was a fan.

Holland Village is like half an island away from where I live, and I don't go there often. But whenever I am in the neighbourhood, I'll pop in to get some buns, mostly spending more then S$10 at any time.

I love this shop. It has a very homely feel to it, and the buns are really good! Smells great, taste great, and it's not too sweet or creamy. And it reminds me of those japanese bakery shop you see in cartoons or read about in books. It's just such a magical place for me! If you happen to be in Holland Village next time, do pop in to try a bun! To know what are the buns you should try, check out their website at the reference link given below.
