A Happy Day ~ Gave presents, See Gowns & Birthday Celebration! =)

Posted on: March 15, 2009

Yesterday was a busy day for me – had to go to quite a few places! =)

First stop i went over to Cynthia’s place to pass some stuff to her. As she was out, i passed it to her dad instead! Got Charmaine 2 tops , chocolates for Jase & chicken essence for Cynthia’s mum. I just got to know that her mum got a stroke recently ={   Poor Cynthia… One ordeal after another. I hope that’s enough for her & i wish Cynthia’s mum & Charmaine a speedy recovery. God bless them!

Anyway thanks to my brother for the Eu Yan Sang chicken essence =)  Recently he got a whole carton of it (there was some discount) to give to his clients so i asked if i can buy 1 box from him & he say No & just told me to take it =)  He also knows about what happened to Cynthia’s daughter & mum.

Then @ around 12pm, i went over to Blk 101C @ Punggol (near to Cynthia’s place) to meet Michelle. She had fixed an appointment with this home based bridal shop to try on some wedding gowns =)

I know everyone says the same thing but when a girl puts on a wedding gown, she looks really different! =)  I really can’t wait to attend her wedding next year. With the hair & makeup + the wedding gown, i’m sure she will look stunning.

Anyway the owner Jean was a very nice lady. I saw some nice dresses & i don’t mind renting it for special occasions =)  By the way, the 3 gowns that Michelle tried cost $188 each for rental. I find it very reasonable!

Up next is to Sihouette The Atelier located @ The Stamford House. Jeremy & Jeannie also join us to view the gowns together. There were lots of beautiful gowns in the shop!

Anyway this lady Minda was attending to Michelle & she’s pretty good @ suggesting what’s suitable for her. But Sihouette is on the higher end, Michelle was quoted $3400 just for gowns (WG off the rack & MTM EG to keep) , hair & makeup , flowers (6 corsages, hand bouquet & flower arrangement for car).

But no picture taking are allowed @ Sihouette so can’t share with you all what Michelle had tried.

Anyway Michelle main purpose is just want to know what kind of gowns is sutiable for her first. As for where to get the gowns, will be decided later =)

Jeannie’s Birthday Celebration @ Togi

The interior & business is very good for this restaurant.

It was Jeannie’s birthday & we went to Togi Korean Restaurant for dinner =) It’s my first time here. Been to Taste Paradise that as opposite the road & my brother noticed the crowd @ Togi. Looks really popular!

As usual, i always enjoy the side dishes when i’m @ a korean restaurant =) My favourite ones @ Togi are the cucumber, kimchi & mashed potato!

Now let me show you what we have eaten!

Beef  Bibimbap! I like the bibimbap here… I always enjoy jap or korean food cause i like my rice to be soft! Hee. And Jeannie the birthday girl mixed it for us & the taste was just right!

Ok… I can’t remember what’s the exact name of this dish. I think it’s spicy kimchi soup with sausage. But it’s not the usual kimchi soup where the size is suitable for maybe 1-2 person only.

As we want something to share for 6 person, the staff recommend this to us! =)  Really good. I like the soup & the various ingredients (rice cake, luncheon meat, sausage , etc).

This is “Zha Jiang Mian“. First time i’m trying it in a korean restaurant! Always see it in korean shows only. I’m not very used to the taste lah. Haha.

You can choose to bbq it yourself or get the staff to do it for you. As our table were full already so we get them to bbq it for us. The pork belly are not too bad but somehow i prefer the one @ Ju Shin Jung , East Coast.

Overall it was a pretty good meal & i don’t mind coming back to try out other dishes. Maybe should get my whole family to come =)

By the way, Togi don’t accept reservations so do come early if you don’t want to wait. Last night we reached around 6.30pm & there was still a few tables that’s available.

  • Togi Korean Restaurant
  • 11 Mosque Street
  • Tel: 6221 0830

We proceed on to Clarke Quay for ice cream & walked around. It was nice & cooling compared to Suntec (i went there with the rest after we left Sihouette) which was packed with people due to IT Show.

Initially wanted to go to a place called Yello Jello Retrobar @ The Cannery. But there was a huge crowd due a match between Man U & Liverpool ={  So we decide to go another time & end up going back to my place for mahjong.

We surprised Jeannie with this! Before we left Central, the guys went to get the car but secretly went to Starbucks to get a cinnamon roll =)  And Jeannie has no idea what’s going to happen. Haha. So when she’s in my room, we walked in with this & sang her a birthday song!

Hope you enjoyed your birthday celebration with us! =)
