The Royal Mail Singapore

So this week was Restaurant Week (25th Oct – 2nd Nov 2014) where we can get 3-course dinner at top restaurants at S$35++*!! And T only told me on like Saturday morning at 11am when we were still lazing in bed. So we made a frantic search and decided on The Royal Mail since I’ve read about it before. And thank goodness they had a last minute cancellation so there’s seats for us yay!

For only $25++, we get a starter, main course and dessert!
(Note that the price is only if you make reservations on the website)

And for their dinner menu, it’s $35++. Damn worth it!

Served bread with butter while waiting for our food.

For starters we had a choice of Scallops or Foie Gras and we chose one of each to share.

For my mains, I had the Pan-Seared Salmon which was really good!!

T had the Braised Beef Cheeks which was really tender and well-prepared. And I love the little crispy house-cut potatoes!

Damn happy whenever I get to eat good food.


For desserts, we initially wanted the Panna Cotta but it was sold out. :( So I had Chocolate Fondue while T had the White Chocolate Mousse.


In a nutshell, everything was good and the ambiance was really nice too. Would definitely come back to visit again!

The restaurant was located in the CBD area and as it was the weekends, the place was super empty. Took a stroll around the area and it was so peaceful and therapeutic! Weekends should be relaxing like this…

Wearing a cobalt blue dress from Agneselle which I bought ages ago but left it lying around. :/

Picture spam cos I haven’t been blogging for so long I know I know. And here’s pictures of my face in case you’ve forgotten how I look like hahaha. On usual days, I just put concealer + draw my brows and I’m out of the house!

T is like 3 shades fairer than me laaa!!

Typing this post and edited all the photos on my small puny netbook which is 5 years old, and running on an Intel Atom processor (wth) cos my laptop is dead. (I even forgot my password to it and spent 15mins cracking my head lolol) :( :( :( Waiting for the new Macbook Pro to be released before I get my hands on it! I hope I can survive blogging on this disgusting thing by then!! But anyway, here’s wishing that the new week will be a good and happy week with wonderful things happening to each and every one of us!! *inserts confetti emoticon*

Arteastiq

Had a dinner date with the boy after work to Arteastiq the other day!

Heard alot about the place but this is the first time I’ve been there.

I ordered the Lady Yang ($12) tea set with Oolong Tea with Lychee Tea Gelato.

While T got Monet (S$12) that comes with French Rose Tea with Champagne Vanilla Gelato.

We also ordered 2 special set meals that’s served with side salad and daily soup.. But I can’t remember which was the one we ordered!! :/

Also had 2 choices of wraps (can’t remember what they’re called). We chose beef and and salmon (not in the picture). SO GOOD!!

I look horrible lately.. All the eyebags from looking at the computer and numbers all day. O_O

Overall, the food was really decent. I like the ambiance and decorations but I didn’t like the seats and tables cos we had to bend really low to eat if you get what I mean..


Ending with pictures of food the boy got for me from his Japan trip!

New Beginnings.

Hellooooooooooo!!!
*Waves!!*

It’s been awhile since I’ve updated my blog. Went on a short hiatus cos I’ve been so lazy to even switch on my laptop which has been left untouched for about 3 weeks already.. (And now as I’m typing I can hear some weird noise coming from it. I guess it’s time to upgrade to a new one??)

I’ve been so so lazy lately. The last event I’ve attended was months ago, and I survived through 4months of the year without meeting up with any friends. And it didn’t even feel that long!! Time really flies when you’re working. :( Every night I come home after dinner, I take a shower, go through my skincare regimen, talk to my boyf on the phone and go to sleep. My bed time is usually 10-11pm, am I sleeping a little too much? I mean, life is short right?

I always say that work makes me a dull person. But I think that’s just an excuse that I’ve been giving myself.. I’m the one who choose to become so lazy to even dress up or try new things. Kind of sad but I’ll make a mental note to try to change this aspect of myself that I’m starting to dislike. Lazing around once in awhile is good, but too much of it makes your life really dull and you end up wasting your life away too.

Anyhooo, the other day T and I were walking around Pasir Ris and we saw so many pretty flowers! It’s the blooming season in Singapore now!! It’s sad that I hardly take notice of such things because we often take things for granted. (Like how you only squeal about flowers when you’re overseas but the same scene in Singapore is regarded as nothing special?)

Would really wish to visit Japan one day during the Cherry Blossom season cos I can’t imagine being under rows and rows of trees filled with flowers!!

The thing about life is that you don’t know what’s going to be around the corner. And spring signifies the start of something new, as well as a reminder to us that there’s always a season for everything.

Enjoy your long Easter weekend everybody. :)

To make you feel my love.

This Valentine’s Day like any other year was spent quietly with no extravagant gifts or fanciful dinners.. To me, Valentine’s Day is just like any other day. So why pay more for food or flowers and why do guys feel obligated to get something for girls just because it’s Valentine’s Day? Never liked that idea and I’m very contented with spending some quiet moments with someone precious.

We made it a point to stay home on Vday because we figured everywhere would be super crowded (and true enough it was). The following day we headed to town so we decided to head to Haagen-Dazs to try out their Valentine’s Day Limited Edition specials!

From now till 28th Feb, Haagen-Dazs has their very own Valentine’s Day menu, which sees lovingly crafted creations such as the “Valentine’s Fondue” and the “Love in Full Bloom”, making its way into Singapore for the very first time.


The Valentine’s Fondue ($48++) comes with 16 mini heart shaped scoops of ice-cream in four different flavors, be enticed by a rainbow of exotic fruits, chunks of dark chocolate brownies and chocolate chip cookies, all of which can be dipped into a deliciously decadent chocolate sauce. Was surprised that it came with 2 complimentary coffee or tea as well!! Our ice-cream was not shaped in mini heart shaped because the manager explained to us that it crumbles pretty easily in that shape so we decided to just go for the normal round shaped ones.

Tastes so good and I feel that the price is worth the amount of things we get!


We visited the branch at Wisma Atria and the service was really really good! Everyone were so friendly and helpful even when it’s late into the night! Thanks for making our experience a happy one.
:)

You still have about 10 days left to try out their limited time-period only Valentine’s Day menu so head to the nearest Haagen-Dazs stores now!!
