Dinner @ Jaan with my Bestie

Posted on: July 16, 2009

12th July’09 (Sun)

On this special day, both me & my bestie have arranged to have dinner @ Jaan (Swissotel The Stamford) to celebrate our birthdays together =)

Initial plans was to celebrate mine first @ Equinox then her’s @ Jaan. But i was on self home quarantine when i came back from HK & China. Then we couldn’t fix a neutral date so i thought why not we celebrate together since i don’t mind a belated one!

Now let me show you the pictures that i took that night! Phylicia & i had lots of fun taking pictures for each other. Hee! I think she was very happy that i was so helpful with the phototaking, unlike Kenny!! Oops… =)

Anyway when we reach Swissotel The Stamford, i was feeling both happy & excited =)  Took the lift all the way up to Level 70!

This are my 2 favourite pictures with Phylicia =) 

It was indeed a very enjoyable night with Phylicia. Ever since she got pregnant & gave birth to her first child, we really hardly have the luxury of spending time alone together as Penelopy will mostly tag along.

Although it’s an extravagant meal but it’s worth it as the both of us get to spend some nice & quiet quality time together even though it’s just a few hours.

And if you are willing to splurge, Jaan is really a good choice especially if you want to plan a special date! =)

Personally i will definitely come back again for 3 reasons.

1) The good food – Everything was really yummy. Both Phylicia & i really like the menu for that night. 

2) Service – The staff were really polite & when every dish came, they will explain nicely & clearly to you on the ingredients, etc. They serve their customers with a very sincere attitude & smile =)

3) The great view (really nice during the night).

By the way, i’m not sure if it’s due to the recession, for the whole night, only 2 tables were occupied. It almost felt like we have booked the whole restaurant. Hee!

And i hope our friendship stays strong forever! Hugz…
