The Launch of PlentyfullCame back home the other day to this glorious Restoration care basket from Plentyfull, a restaurant/gourmet grocer/patisserie concept recently launched at Millenia Walk which is all about offering a restoration experience – it’s not just about satisfying your tastebuds, but your body and spirit as well. (I hear their Tiramisu and Choux Puff are more spiked than a porcupine, so that’s my Plentyfull restoration journey penned in the schedule-book right there.)

Fairly chuffed to be able to try the newly-launched Aesop Lucent Facial Concentrate, which purports to supply my occasionally greasier-than-orh-luak combination skin with concentrated doses of vitamins, intense hydration and nourishing botanicals. Stay tuned to the glorious transformation from oyster pancake to sleek and smooth Dorayaki on my new lifestyle and beauty blog, Pupitar Diaries…(just stop, right there – Reality Check Editor).

Shawn began documenting his food experiences since he started reading Law at the National University of Singapore. Initially he turned to food for solace from the rigours of university life, and food eventually became his safe haven away from the horrors of legal practice. However, it dawned on him one day that he has become sufficiently enlightened about the magic of discovering new and good food, and that it was time to share his findings with others. Instead of aligning himself with the vast sea of vanilla foodie influencer-style of writing, which would admittedly open more doors in terms of free meals and public relations love, Shawn decided to approach food writing by way of satirical humour, turning the don't-ya-wanna-eat-what-I'm-eating-cuz-I'm-a-public-figure self-importance/self-indulgent gravitas of Instagram foodie-ism in Singapore on its head and conveying his thoughts about food in a manner which is decidedly obscure at times and on others, frankly nonsensical. The rigours of legal practice and desire for a form of indulgent escape led to Shawn's second passion - experiencing and writing about new and luxury hotel properties. Secret Life of Fatbacks is an extension of Shawn's Instagram account (@Larvitar). For intellectual property reasons, he is unable to name the website anything related to the titular Pokémon character. Feel free to ask him in person what "Fatbacks" refers to. Shawn is not a professional critic, blogger or photographer. He is simply a guy who loves food and luxury hotels very much and (likes to think that he has) a quirky sense of humor. Shawn is presently a full-time lawyer, and when he is not premature ageing due to stress and vicious deadlines, he is somewhere spending an exorbitant amount of money trying out new dining places and hotels.
