#BLOGMEETSG @ Pure Yoga , Ngee Ann City

I attended my first #blogmeetsg event recently hosted by Lucy and Pure Yoga. The event was well-organized and I had a great workout throughout the session. It was indeed a meaningful and healthy event which I hope to attend such healthy networking event in near future.

There were total of 30 bloggers present and we were introduced to Jivamukti class. Pure Yoga is the only studio in Singapore to teach this style of yoga that helps to inspire greater peace, unity, environmental awareness and karma consciousness. Kristin K taught the class with Azmi as her assistant that made our session truly amazing. I love the environment and ambience of Pure Yoga. It gives a sense of comfortable and relaxes moments to release the stress and tiredness after a whole day of hard work. I can’t wait to try out the complimentary 7-day pass courtesy from Pure Yoga.

When we finally endure enjoyed through an hour session, a lucky prize draw for one lucky blogger to win an outfit from Pure Apparel. Too bad!I was not the lucky one! We didn’t manage to mingle around through the yoga session but the kind sponsors have provided us a healthy spreads after session. This allows bloggers and co-hosts to mingle around. We have the coconut water, kale crisps and raw chocolate bars and many more to choose from. The healthy snacks are available from ‘ Nood Food Bar’ at Pure Fitness Asia Square (Tower 1).

We ended the session with a bag of goodies courtesy from the sponsors. I took a flatlay shot of the goodies in the bag and there is a complimentary 7-day pass to all of the Pure studios including Yoga and Fitness.

There are sponsors that were generous on that day. Here is the short introduction of individual sponsors:-

Just Picked Coco Water

BlogmeetSG Pure Yoga -picked coconut water

Everyone of us has the opportunity to drink the coconut juice infused with mango after the yoga session. I love the refreshing taste as coconut water is rich in nutrients. It is a premium coconut water brand from New York featuring low-sugar green coconuts picked and packed in Thailand, then shipped straight to Singapore. If you browse through their website for more information, it also stated that there is no sugar added, zero additives and is not from concentrate.

Essential Oil Remedies 

BlogmeetSG Pure Yoga -Young Living

BlogmeetSG Pure Yoga Ngee Ann City 1Before we started off the session, we were introduced to a bottle of 100% pure, therapeutic grade peppermint essential oil from Young Living which was placed at individual yoga mats. It comes in individual bottles and we were given a bottle of Young Living Peppermint oil to use in the class.Nana told us to rub 1 drop of the oil in between the palms before cupping the nose with hands and deeply inhale it. It was my first time experiencing it this way with pure essential oil.

Essential Oils are used for centuries for their restorative properties to the body, mind, and spirit. They were mankind’s fist medicines. They are freshly cultivated and distilled from plants, shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes and seeds. The therapeutic-grade essential oils deliver benefits through small, direct absorption into the skin and normal digestive process. Essential oils cleanse, calm, stimulate, soothe, replenish and bring balance to all systems of the body.

I was shared that the organic essential oil has slightly different scent from different batches every year even for the same flavour. Unlike non-organics, the scent would be same. This is because the raw ingredients or we called it natural floral generates different scent according to the climate changes.

One Day Food Trail @ Johor Bahru (V.2)

I posted One day on foot Food trails in Johor Bahru V.1 last year (2014) and I am back with V.2. Ever since the Ringgit value is dropping, many have started to cross the causeway to do café hopping. Café owners in JB sees this as an opportunities and started their business within a walking distance from JB custom/ City Square. For those who travel to Johor Bahru with public transport can still enjoy the café hopping scene other than shopping at City Square.

Here are the places I went within the day.

The Replacement Lodge & Kitchen

It is the second café concept by the team of Faculty of Caffeine. Instead of the black and dark colour walls, the café here is in white theme where photos are all photogenic and instagram worthy. The café is newly opened on May this year but the photos are all over the instagram feeds. Every part of the interior café is worth photo taking especially the full height window where tons of photos are posted online for this particular angle.(WIFI is available)

Next, we spotted this café opposite Bev C and decided to give a try. Most of the cafes open from 12pm onwards and while waiting for 12pm, we give a try. The café is considered smaller scale with limited dining seats indoor but there also have 2-3 outdoor table seating. The interior design of the café has the classic old retro theme with decorations and settings to create a cosy ambience for the customers.

The café offers brunch menus before 12pm and main courses after 12pm. We ordered Egg Benedict with a glass of guava juice. Although it looks pretty on photo, do not expect much on the taste. I find the double cheddar cheese was too overwhelming and I am unable to taste the hollandaise sauce with the servings. When we ordered egg benedict, we expect to see the flowing egg yolk once we poke on it but sad to say that the egg yolk is overdone.

I blogged about the café sometime back.If you have difficulties finding the café, spot Hiap Joo Bakery first. The café is just located next to it. It is another concept from JWC with the combination of art and café to public. I would say it has a lovely place to sit back and relax with the creation coffee that has individual behind story.

Oh! Ice-Cream

Oh Ice Cream KSL

I chanced upon this photo in instagram and decided to visit the place. Since it is located at KSL mall, we took a cab in front of Eh He Café and Marco Vintage Café over. The distance is less than 10 minutes and the cab fare is capped around RM8.00 to RM10.00 by meter run. This ice-cream boutique was opened in July this year and strategically located at LG-10 in KSL mall.

We ordered the pot ice-cream which costs us RM28.00 with 3 choices of ice-cream flavours and 2 toppings. It includes the small size waffles with whipped cream and chocolate sauce. If you are looking for instagram worthy photo, this would be a choice especially with the dry ice effect. Taste wise, I would say it’s not much of outstanding taste though.

If you are a fan of zi char or attracted to ‘Beggar Chicken’, this is the right place to visit at Taman Sentosa. Although there are many other restaurant choices around that area, Teck Sing has a long way history with their well-known ‘Beggar Chicken’. I decided randomly to settle for some savoury foods before we off to next sweet treats.

SIGNATURE/ MUST-TRY: ‘Beggar Chicken / Paper Wrapped Chicken @ RM22.00. They use kampong chicken and you can taste the juicy meat that soaked into the herbal broth. Truly the essence of the chicken taste.

HeadMost Café

One more stop to JWC concept café where apparel boutique and café are combined as one stop. I have blogged about it previously. The location is slightly off the main roads so you need to provide the address to the cab driver. If he is unsure and taking cab from city square, advise him to turn left after the traffic light just before Plaza Pelangi building.Drive all the way straight and you will see a row of shophouses on your left first then another row of shophouses on your right. The café is on your right side.(WIFI is available)

SCOOP BAR Malaysia

SCOOP BAR MALAYSIA

Since Headmost Café is quite near to Plaza Pelangi shopping mall, we decided to try SCOOP BAR. This is the first kiosk in Johor Bahru and their second outlet is at Sutera Mall. We took approximately 10-15 minutes slow walk to arrive the mall. Alternatively you can opt for cab services but I think by then you are too full and a bit of walk would help. SCOOP BAR specialty is their cookie sandwich ice-cream. Cookies and ice-creams are available in different flavours. You can pick and choose. A total of 12 different ice-cream flavors to choose from.

Their signature is the cookie sandwich ice cream. You are able to choose the cookie of your choice and pair them up with the ice cream of your choice too. They have a total of 12 different flavors of ice cream. You can satisfy your durian ice-cream craving here but the taste here is much lighter compared to other places. I paired it with Chocolate S’more cookie. Red Velvet Cookie with earl grey tea ice-cream recommended by the staff. Overall taste was decent except that the cookie texture is hard to bite. Our hands get messed up once we took the first bite.SCOOP BAR MALAYSIA 1

If you are taking a cab back from Plaza Pelangi mall to City Square or JB custom, it will be around RM10.00 or even lesser as the driving distance is very short. This marks the end of V.2 trail and hopefully more to come.
