It's a perfectly rainy day to sleep in. But I dragged myself out of the warmth and comfort of my bed because meeting Mrs Low @jazreeltan for some Mexican food!
Then I'm dragging her to the TTR store for some shopping lolol. Told her I'll be her personal shopper for today. 😂
Today is one of those days I cannot decide which outfit to wear.
Wanted to wear the Scarlett Lace Dress out but is it too cray. Hahahahaha. Rainy day somemore.
Neh. Scarlett Lace Dress.
I will look siao right if I wear this for casual lunch on a rainy day?! Hahaha. Not gonna be wearing the red cause I'm keeping it for CNY. Was thinking of black but…… mm. Maybe another day la. Hahaha.
Tsk my evil plan failed hahahaha 😂
Went with my favourite basic dress in the end! ☺️ Anybody knows which dress this is? Hehe.
Is it just me or does it irk you as well when you step inside a cafe/restaurant and the entire place reeks of whatever food they're serving???
I get so annoyed whenever that happens because the smell lingers. Everywhere. Your clothes, your hair.
I didn't use to be so sensitive about this "food smell" thing until recently. Ugh. So gross. I just bathed leh. Double ugh.
I'm waiting for @jazreeltan to come and smell it for herself. It's so bad that I just shifted outside even though there's only one table and the seats are not proper and comfortable.
I'd choose an aching back over food perfume all over me any day.
I don't wanna smell like burritos. 🌯
Moved outdoors and instantly felt less angsty about the smell.
It's a good thing today is so cooling because of the incessant rain! Else… I might consider heading some place else for lunch.
YES THE SMELL IS THAT BAD.
Other than the overpowering smell of grease, lunch was great.
I didn't harbour high hopes because I haven't heard of this place prior to subscribing to Entertainer.
My go-to places for Mexican food are Muchachos (yummy and affordable!!!!) and Super Loco (yummy but less affordable hahaha) and Guzman Y Gomez (yummy, affordable but omg so far 😭).
So in today's episode of #JoyceisEntertained, I visited Afterwit Mexican Tacqueria!
Finally can put the burrito and taco emoji to use. Hahaha.
They are offering 1 for 1 main course items on the #Entertainer app! We asked and they said it's everything except those under brunch and desserts.
A glimpse at the menu.
And btw I'm damn proud of myself for lugging my camera out with me to lunch today. Hahaha. So I have nice photos to post on Dayre today! ✌🏻 Can't remember when was the last time I properly took nice photos and then blogged about my food.
The interior which looks great but smells bad. 😩
It's not me being fussy cause my sticky friend @jazreeltan also feels that way.
I hope they can do something about their ventilation soon. Cause this is a place I would probably wanna head back to again!
I really like how they did up the space inside to give it a Mexican vibe.
Camera is not so good at taking photos of the menu though. Bokeh too strong and I lazy to adjust. Snapped this using phone!
The fillings that they offer for the tacos and burritos sound pretty interesting.
Both Jaz and I didn't want rice so burritos were out for us.
Then, we narrowed it down to lime butter crab, garlic mayo shrimp and sriracha tuna! Guess which did we order in the end?
At first we were like… "What's froothies??" Upon asking they told us it's fruit smoothies… But I thought smoothies are made with fruits anyway?
Confused. Hahaha. Made up words are always funny to me.
Anyway we ordered the lychee froothie to share. Which we shouldn't have but I'll tell you about it later.
Desserts sound yummy but unfortunately our stomach spaces were very limited.
The first one sounds like it might taste interesting. Paddlepop ice cream with gula melaka?
Churros with thai milk tea dip sounds awesome please! 😍
The lychee froothie which didn't look appetising. It looked like a cup of ice blended milk. Lol.
Taste wise was pretty alright but a tad too sweet for my liking.
It actually tasted like the hichew sweet in lychee flavour! But in ice blended form. Hahaha.
Jaz and I shared this and barely finished 1/4! This was 7 bucks I think. Can save your money. 😂
We settled on the lime butter crab and garlic mayo shrimp!
They're awesome choices and made us two happy girls. 😌🙌🏻
The taco shell was a little cracker-like and not what the usual taco shells taste like.
I like that it didn't turn soggy too fast and crumble. That would have been a messy affair! 😂
They were really really generous with the crab and shrimp fillings! Damn worth it especially with the one for one deal. But even without, it's also pretty decent.
Both were great and I would definitely offer these flavours again for my next visit!
Only paid $26 for two mains and one drink. 🎉
Then I kidnapped @jazreeltan and made her shop at #TTR.
She walked away a happy kid with her picks! Go over to her dayre to see what she bagged home! 👀
Also, happy day because I got to meet and chat a little with @missgoob and @sandydandy today at the store! 👋🏻
This super chio lace set in wine red just arrived today! With stocks for the Scarlett Lace Dress.
I think…. I wanna keep this for CNY too. Hahaha.
I really like this hue of deep wine red. Very classy colour! And perfectly festive too. 😍
This set will be in store tomorrow from evening onwards!!
Here's a closer look at the lace details!
This (in both wine red and black!!) will also finally be available in stores!!
And this too!
For those of you who didn't manage to grab it at the stores or online from our first launch… Here's your final chance!
Pink for the lace set will be in stores too!
And Navy for those who prefer to stay safe with their colour choices. Hehe. Got green too but I lazy go save the photo from website hahahahaa.
Some of you asked me if this will be restocked and the answer is…. YES 🙌🏻
You'll also find this in Navy, Pink and Mint Green.
And also…. Even though we're really packed at the moment, I'm trying to convince @jongsy to stock in a couple of unreleased items at the store just for CNY.
Lastly… If you're wondering whether you can get your items in time for CNY if you are eyeing on any item from our website.
The answer is yes IF you fulfill the requirements below:
