Pictures

Here are my Instagram pictures...with a more detailed caption because unlike Instagram, blog posts can be as wordy as i want! :)

Which means i can put the entire address of the food places etc.

Enjoy!

The Best Ramen in Singapore

I love love love Ramen Santouka! Ippudo was my favorite but recently i've been going to Ramen Santouka quite a bit and the pork cheek is really SOOOO good.

Do give it a try if you love Ramen! You have to order this shio (salt) soup base + pork cheek + egg (the best combination in my opinion)!


I think they have 2 outlets in Singapore. I always go to the Cuppage Terrace one. :)

I love how i look with no make up! Ok in this picture i did put a super cheat filter to make my skin look glory and flawless - an effect i can only achieve in pictures because recently my skin has been nothing but a mess!!! CAN'T WAIT TO FIX IT! I'm thinking of finding a new treatment for my skin - like maybe do laser instead of the usual facial? Hmm, i hope it works for me!


Just a selfie.

The other day somebody left a comment and asked me if i was in a Ferrari and then said i was a gold digger etc. I really wanted to argue back and explain but lately my life just got a lot more interesting and busy and even if i did explain, people will always judge, most won't change their opinion. It's just annoying when people think girls who are out with guys who drive super cars are all of the same kind?!  Honestly, i don't care. I know it sounds like crap but whatever car he drives isn't important. I have said it before that i really want a bf who can drive so i can explore food places in SG cus some places are hard to get to with public transport. So to me, as long as he has a car, whatever the car is, i'd be super glad to date him! Coming out of a chio car everyday is really just a Bonus to me. Seriously, IDGAF. I actually HAAAATE the stares i get because i just know what's on people's minds. I know of people who feel proud of it and think people look at them with Envy....but all i feel when people stare is "That girl is just after his money...." Lol! I even suggested he switch 1 of the car to a more "humble" car but aiyah yknow guys and their "image"....they fear people thinking they are less successful if they "downgrade" the car. -_-


Macaroons are one of the many guilty pleasures i have in my life.

Did you know?
1 Macaroon = 90 calories?!

CRAZY! That "Tea Break" i had cost me 90x4=360 calories already.


Another Selfie.

Yummy Fish Soup + Sambal Chilli at Jurong West Market.

The chilli was so so so good and i really like the texture of the fish! One of the best fish soup i've had. The chili just made everything taste like heaven?? It was so tasty! I wonder if they sell the chilli in bottles??

This month is like "Journey to The West" month for me. Because of the guy i'm seeing, i've been checking out places like Jurong Point, JEM...etc. Haha. I AM TRULY AMAZED AT HOW INTERESTING THE WEST SIDE ACTUALLY IS. All my 22 years living in Singapore, i've never once explored the West so this month has been a great eye opener and an awesome experience.

Upcoming Printed Dress on OSF!


My chin looks AMAZING!

I just top up fillers that day! Sad thing is it will slowly subside by 30-40% in the next few days....

Honestly wished i did a chin implant in Korea. :( Kinda regret it leh! I really really look so much better with a sharper and longer chin! Maybe that can be my next surgery.....LOL!

Omakase at Sushi Ichi

Ok so if you saw the long caption above about me dating a new guy etc. Yeah i am and he has been bringing me to several places for Omakase. Expensive but impressive. I think it's the best place to bring your date to cus you leave everything to the chef. 

Customers ordering omakase style expect the chef to be innovative and surprising in the selection of dishes, and the meal can be likened to an artistic performance by the chef. Ordering omakase can be a gamble.

Here are 2 places i went for Omakase recently and LOVED IT. Been to quite a few but the 2 below are experiences i won't forget!

Expect to pay a lot though....i think it can cost up to $200/pax. Quite crazy but if you haven't tried Omakase Style dining, you should!

Instagram Secrets

I'm an Instagram Addict and because i'm on Instagram so much, i learnt A LOT a bout Instagram.

Do you think your pictures are nice and you wish to get more Likes/Followers?

In this post i'm gonna share with ya'll HOW TO GET MORE FOLLOWERS?

As a Blogger, i've to always look for ways to grow! The more followers, the better for my blogging career! AND ONE THING I WILL NEVER DO IS...C H E A T. By cheating, i mean, buying followers.

Here's an example of a website which you can buy Instagram followers from...


I've seen SO MANY bloggers buying followers on Instagram and am so disappointed! It's unfair because clients choose bloggers based on the number of followers on their profile page. Clients wouldn't go investigate and find out if it's real or not.

In this post, i'm going to teach you how to gain more followers the "right way"!

1. USE POPULAR HASHTAGS

Here are some of the top hashtags on Instagram...
#love
#me
#cute
#photooftheday
#girl
#igers
#happy
#summer
#instagramhub
#bestoftheday
#beautiful
#igdaily
#nofilter
#webstagram
#fashion
#sky
#fun
#smile
#like
#pretty
#food
#sun

2. POST YOUR PICTURE AT THE RIGHT TIMING

This depends on which country you're in. In Singapore, from experience, the best timing to post pictures is between 5pm-9pm. I don't know if it applies to everyone or only me but i assume it is because it's the time people end school/work and are on the bus/train on their way home. If you post your pictures at 2-6am in the morning, don't expect to get that many likes/new followers cus most people in in Singapore are asleep!


3. BE SELECTIVE WITH THE PHOTOS YOU POST


Don't post just ANYTHING. Make sure it's a "beautiful" picture, what i would call, "Instagram Worthy".

"When I first started using Instagram I tried to use it as a sort of photo diary: updating pictures of drinks, my dog, or a fun evening out," "I soon realized that Instagram is better served as a place to surface artistic, beautiful photos. Maybe it's the filters, or the community, but people tend to really enjoy and respond to beauty on the service."


4. PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT WORKS FOR YOU


Know what you are best at. Some people are good at posting food pictures, some of their faces, some of their OOTDs, some only post Black & White pictures....know what works for you best and stick to that if you can. Not EVERYONE can post nice food pictures, or nice OOTDs.

5. FOLLOW AND LIKE OTHER PEOPLE'S PICTURES

Be friendly, comment on people's pictures to get noticed! Of course, don't get all obsessed and comment on EVERYONE'S picture. You'll just look like you're "trying too hard" - which will turn people off.

6. GEOTAG YOUR IMAGES

If you're at Marina Bay Sands, GEOTAG IT! People who are in the area will see your picture if they tap the location's name and if they view your profile and like your pictures, you just gained a new follower!

---------------------

I also recently tried something out to see if it'll work cus i saw a few people doing it. Especially bloggers but not sure if it's cus they want to make their name look more interesting or if they want to get "noticed". It is VERY popular among overseas Nail Art/Beauty/Food/Fashion Instagram accounts with over 100k followers.

Trick is to add a symbol in front of my name,


eg. * TAMMY TAY *


(This is an example of my friend's Following List, where i appear 1st due to the symbol in front)

You can try the following too if you don't like the * , !Tammy! or ~Tammy~ or (Tammy)

DO NOT put a Emoji, the emoji will only put you at the back of the list if sorted alphabetically. 

This will help you appear the First on your follower's Following List if the list is sorted alphabetically. I realized this pattern, it's only sorted out alphabetically if your follower follows less than 100 people. I'm not sure about you guys but i like to look at who people are following so i click on people's Following List pretty often! If there are many who are like me out there and your name appears first on the list, i'm sure it'll help in getting noticed! 

Still unsure about the results so i'm trying it out for a few days to see if my followers grow faster or not.

Hope this post helps you gain more followers if you've been wondering how! GOOD LUCK!

Oh and lastly, remember to LINK your FACEBOOK/TWITTER account to your Instagram account. That will help!
