MY FAVORITE PIZZA PLACE IN SINGAPORE


Is it blasphemous that I think local pizzeria PEPERONI serves the best pizza islandwide? I would honestly choose pizza from here any day every day over celebrity chef restaurant Mozza or even, dare I say it, Skinny Pizza (with all its yummy truffle goodness). Don't get me wrong, I love pizza. I love pizza in all its forms and all its creators, and you will still definitely see me enjoying one from eateries other than Peperoni. Let's just say that for now, I have found my ultimate pizza-pasta-panacotta meal in this eatery that kneads love.


Peperoni's 'Appetite for Life’ philosophy declared proudly on the menu. According to their website, this philosophy makes Peperoni more than just a restaurant, it is a place that has a mission - to bring people together, to bind relationships, to savour life in all its delightful flavours.


Listen to your cravings, the menu said. I grin sheepishly as my boyfriend teases me about my inconsolable food cravings.


And this my friends, was what I was craving for that day. Half and half Diavola (pepperoni) and Quattro Formaggi (Mozzarella, taleggio, scamorza & gorgonzola cheese) with extra anchovies. Yum yum yummmm!!!


Frutti di Mare Penne. Good seafood pasta, but nothing in comparison to their Carbonara which I kinda regret not ordering this specific visit. Thought I'd mix it up but now I know better than to mess with Regina's personal Peperoni trifecta.


My throat was actually very bad during this visit so the only thing I could eat in peace was this delicious vanilla panna cotta. It can do better plating wise to be honest, but taste wise? Peperoni can do me no wrong.

and a quick ootd! {wearing: lacoste shirt, dorothy perkins shorts, sm parisian sandals}


What about you, guys? Got any food cravings this midweek? I have to admit though, I think I'm my blog's biggest fan. Whenever I post something, it makes me always want to go back. So, yeah, a pizza sounds nice right now. I might just be a long lost ninja turtle.. cowabunga, dude! Haha!
 
PS - This particular branch of Peperoni is located at 95 Frankel Avenue, Singapore 458221.

PAWEL ANDROSIUK x THE ROYAL ACADEMY OF FINE ARTS



Hi guys! Let's help Pawel Androsiuk fund his studies at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Belgium

PAWEL who?
Back in 2011, I participated in AIESEC Bialystok's Enter Your Future project wherein I, along with 4 fabulous ladies from Georgia, Ukraine, and Argentina, conducted workshops in the different high schools to promote cultural awareness, as well as youth empowerment. The city, the people, the memories and the friendships were beyond amazing. That was honestly one of the best times of my life and I will always look back on that period with deep fondness. :)


Pawel was one of the students I met in Bialystok. We were assigned to I Liceum Ogólnokształcące, which according to my sources, happens to be the top school in Bialystok (no biases though, I love all the LOs we worked with♥︎). We got to spend the morning with their class as seen above, and although it's a bit of a blur now, I distinctly remember Pawel. Not because he was calling attention to himself, I don't think we even got to chat then, but because my fashion spidey senses tingled. One look at Pawel, you'll know that he's in fashion. A few weeks later, we bumped into him and a classmate at the city center near the raspberry lody place where they greeted us, unsure if we still recognised them. How can I not?! Here was this teenager who looks like he was plucked out from a hip metropolitan city or a Topman (when it was still grunge) catalogue.



Turns out my fashion spidey senses were right. He has been interning for fashion houses in Warsaw and London since 2010, showcasing collections in Bialystok fashion week, joining and winning(!) international competitions, and now, he's admitted to the prestigious Royal Academy of Fine Arts. I've always found him fashion forward and now is our chance to help further forward his fashion career. Let's help him fund his studies by contributing to his Indiegogo Fundraiser and by creating buzz for his campaign. Please do spread the word! This guy deserves to be in Antwerp. I can't wait to see what Pawel Androsiuk has in store for the rest of the world.
