Christmas & New Year Celebration 2014

Hello everyone, its official! My face is distorted! :/ I don't know why but yesterday I recorded a video and then when I transferred it to my laptop, I then realise that my face is swollen on one side wtf. What is this! I'm not sure whether it's because I'm getting fatter, by fatter I mean healthier because previously I was way TOO skinny, or what. So I was recording #AskTypicalben video yesterday night (answering all the questions asked by you guys on my Instagram) but I'm not sure whether am I going to rerecord it again though, will see how! But all I know is tomorrow we will be recording #BenRanAway video yay!!!

I know right, finally new video after so long!

Don't blame us okay, both of us were working previously! And Randy is still working now though! ;)

KFC Curry Rice Bucket

typicalben kfc

Hello everyone!!! I'm back again at KFC for their exclusive fan party to witness the launch of a new Rice Bucket flavour!! :D

I'm always super thrilled, when I know that KFC is going to launch a new menu!! I really like how they always surprise and bring us all these awesome new flavours that will never fail to satisfy and excite our taste buds! :p This time round, they are going to unveil another new flavour of Rice Bucket (apart from À La King & Original Recipe flavour) and it got us really excited!

kfc fans

Fans that are exclusively picked from their Facebook Page to attend the fan party!

While waiting for my Rice Bucket, I ordered myself a Salted Caramel Latte from KFC Coffee, their new café concept!
First time trying the drinks from their café and its actually pretty good!

There are 4 across the island at KFC ARC, NTU, Valley Point and The Signature. Go check it out!

I think most of us here love curry right and I was really happy to know it’s curry flavour! The Curry Rice Bucket comes with more than 300g of fragrant chicken rice, topped with crispy Popcorn Chicken and smothered in a creamy potato curry. De-li-cious!

It's awesome how they thought of bringing 2 of our iconic Singaporean favourites, Chicken Rice & Curry together with KFC Popcorn Chicken and in a bucket! Giving it a slight twist to delight us with a localised flavour that tastes soooo good! *.*

And both of us actually find that the KFC Curry Rice Bucket comes at the right time since our nation commemorates its Golden Jubilee this year! SG50!!!! What better to celebrate the year with our very own localised flavours right!!!

Time to eat this full of abundance and yummy, KFC Curry Rice Bucket! :D

typicalben eating kfc curry rice bucket

All along, I really love eating curry and I always eat a lot when my mum or grandma cooked it at home on normal days! So when it comes to the KFC Curry Rice Bucket, I also like it a lot since it's curry heh!! I personally find the serving portion pretty huge and satisfying, especially the rice (it comes with more than 300g of chicken rice wow!) which is so fragrant and nice!

As for the curry taste, I find it just nice for everyone's taste buds as it is not way too spicy or too bland. So I'm sure all curry lovers (or even if you're not), you guys will sure love it with this new twist to their Rice Bucket!

What's even better is that, this delicious KFC Curry Rice Bucket is only at $4!!!!!

Yes, it's just $4 with Popcorn Chicken, Creamy Potato Curry and Chicken Rice... all in bucket! So worth it!


Anyway we also ordered Cheese Fries to share among us! I always never fail to order this whenever I'm eating at KFC. Usually I'll change my Whipped Potato to Cheese Fries because I LOVE their Cheese Fries! Yum yum yum!

kfc chicken drumstick

We also had their signature Original Recipe chicken too!

I just realised that we were such a glutton that day! But everything is so nice, we just couldn't stop eating!

kfc froyo

For dessert (yes, dessert), we had their very own, KFC Froyo! Which is amazing!!!

Okay, I don't want to be exaggerating but Isaac and Esther were with me for the food tasting and they told me that they love their froyo so much that they think it’s better than many of the froyo out there (which people are queuing up for). Recently they still text me to tell me that they miss eating it and they want to go eat again omg! I really liked it too and find it very affordable as well! There are 25 KFC restaurants serving KFC Froyo now so you can check out their website for one nearest you!

I had the natural (they also have another passion fruit flavour) with Froot Loops topping, which is only $2!!!! Very affordable eh right and it's very nice some more!!! If you want the cone instead, it's only $1!!! :O

kfc froyo

All our Froyo! Some of them had the strawberry and mango sauce as toppings!

Another photo with Qiu who is kinda my KFC buddy now? Hahaha! Talking about KFC buddy....
The new KFC Curry Rice Bucket also comes in a Meal and a Buddy Meal!

The Curry Rice Bucket Meal comes with a Curry Rice Bucket and a Regular Pepsi at $5!

They also have Rice Bucket Buddy Meal, which comes with Rice Bucket (where you can choose among Curry, À La King or Original Recipe), 2 pieces of chicken, 2 regular sides - Whipped Potato & Coleslaw and 2 medium Pepsi at $12.50!

I love how we can enjoy this bucketful of goodness at just $4 and $5 for a meal with regular Pepsi. And spoiling us for choices with the trio buckets (Curry, À La King & Original Recipe) when we order the Rice Bucket Buddy Meal! Because #youdeservemore!

Go try it with your family and friends and let me know whether you guys like it as much as I do okay? :) Enjoy eating because they say people who love to eat, are always the best people! Thank you KFC once again for the hosting us! ♥

My failed picnic attempt

I just had steamboat with my mum earlier at about 1am and now I'm way too full too sleep! :/

It all started by us watching Kang Xi Lai Le on tv and then after that, I spontaneously asked my mum whether she wants to eat steamboat. She then agreed and went to prepare immediately wtf (I think she also hungry! Confirm!). Luckily steamboat is relatively easy to prepare as we just have to dump all the ingredients into the soup, so I don't need to feel that bad for making her prepare at such a late hour haha. But the worse thing is... ended up we didn't even eat much at all, we just had a bit of food and we were all full already lol -_- I think our mouth are just itchy, you know there's a Chinese saying "嘴巴痒“ hahaha. It means you're not hungry but just wanna eat something. Anyway, my dad and Ran don't even want to care about us at all and they went to sleep while we were eating! Well, I was thinking that maybe we all can have a family steamboat supper together or something what hahaha.

Talking about food, I kinda went for a picnic last Sunday and it pretty much a failed one because it didn't went well due to the rain. I was quite upset about it because I planned it one week ahead and was looking forward to it! But one lucky thing is that we decided not to prepare food ourselves from the start due to time constraint, if not I think I'll be even more upset. But I'll want to plan one again and this time round, we will have to prepare all the food ourselves. I think it will be more fun and delicious too! ;D

Do you all wanna make a quick guess how long did my picnic lasted last Sunday?

Nope not 1 hour!

No no, not 30 mins!

Noooo! You're wrong, not 15 mins...

Just..... 5 mins! -_-

Went to Gastronomia at Holland Village for a quick bite before heading to Botanic Gardens for picnic! Ordered this Blue Orange Mocha and it is SO GOOD okay and I really loved it! It's one of my favourite caffeine drink now!

And usually I cannot finish my coffee whenever I had it over at Starbucks but this, I finished it all! Or maybe because at Starbucks, I'll always order either Grande or Venti and it's too much coffee for me. I can drink a lot of tea though, I think about.... 20 Venti size cup lololol since I always refill hot water non-stop. Which also makes my teeth getting more and more yellow nowadays! :(

Salmon pizza which is delicious as well.

Then after that, we went to buy some of the food from Gastronomia itself and also Cold Storage. Actually I really do like grocery shopping, its super fun! We didn't buy a lot of food because I always have a feeling that we won't eat so much one. That time I went picnic with Fingers, we also didn't eat much. I don't wanna waste the food, so this time round I didn't want to buy so much.

Arrived at Botanic Gardens with Vespa (which explains my helmet)! Yes, because I posted this picture on my Instagram and there are people thinking wtf is he wearing a helmet, he think he cute like that? - So yeah, I was on a scooter okay! Legit reason!

Randomly just hopped on a swing chair while finding the area for our picnic session!

Finally found a place and after taking this picture, it rained!!!! So we quickly packed up and went to seek shelter.

And after about 10mins, the rain stopped. So we went back to the grass patch and placed all our stuff again...

First time trying this orange juice!

Some meat to go with the bread! We also bought some ham as well!

Cheese to go with the bread too!

Pasta and broccoli that we take-away from the restaurant! And did you see that water droplet on my phone in this picture? Yes, after taking all these photos, IT RAINED AGAIN! So we quickly packed up and seek shelter again. x_x

And after about 15mins, the rain stopped again. So we went back to the grass patch and placed all our stuff...

Took some photos before we get all lazy and laze on the mat while munching our food.

Chips!!!! Who doesn't love chips!!! I super love!!!!! And after taking these pictures, IT RAINED ONCE AGAIN!!!!! This time round its super heavy rain though, so we ended up having picnic in the shelter? -_- Sigh. That's why I said the time that we had proper picnic is just 5mins only, or maybe less than that because I used them all up to take photos fml lolololol. Okay that's all!!!

I'm very determine to go back for a picnic again soon but this time round other than preparing food myself, maybe I'll also check the weather forecast before going hahaha! Now we know!!! Must always check the weather forecast before picnic lol! ;)
