Initally i just want to help Wenhui get some discount @ Robinsons with my card but end up i join her & her 2 sisters for their X’mas outing.

 

We arranged to meet up @ 313 Somerset & since i reach earlier, i decide to walk around & explore the new place. And i saw this nice Macaron X’mas tree @ The Icing Room!

When everyone arrived, we went to KFC for lunch first & then we walked around the new shopping mall =)  Then it’s off to Cineleisure to get the tickets for “The Princess & The Frog”!

While we were in the queue, i got some yummy yogurt from Frolick to share with everyone!

 

And it’s time for more shopping as everyone wants to do more X’mas shopping for gift exchange, etc. And Takashimaya is the best place to go cause i like the idea that they do complimentry gift wrapping regardless of the amount you spent as long as the purchase is @ Taka!

And every year they have different colours & theme for their wrappers! It just makes me look forward to X’mas & see what kind of design they have! =)

 

While the rest are doing the X’mas shopping, i went to the basement & came to Swiss Bake to get them something =)  You will get to see what it is in the next picture! Hee.

We ended the shopping part @ Robinsons Centrepoint where i help Wenhui get some discount for the baby stuff that she wanted to get. Then it’s off for a quick break @ Toast Box before we go to Cineleisure to watch the movie.

 

I got them each a star shaped cookie with various Santa designs on it! I think Swiss Bake has the nicest designs among all that i’ve seen. I ♥ the cute design so much!

 

After movie, Wenli has to leave first so i went to Xin Wang HK Cafe with Wenhui & Wenya for dinner & window shop a bit before we go home.

But before we go to the mrt station, i suggest to take a picture with Santa @ 313 Somerset as there was complimentry photo-taking & they even print out the picture for you =)

They managed to take a nice one with my camera too!

It was really a nice outing with these 3 sisters =)  I only got to know Wenli & Wenya better during Wenhui’s wedding but they are such nice & easy-going people & i’m glad to have them as my friends!

May everyone have a blessed Christmas & a Happy New Year! =)

♥♥♥

Last month when i meet Wenhui for dinner @ Marmalade Pantry, i already suggested to her that we can come to Ootoya @ Orchard Central for our X’mas meet up =)

I was quite excited about coming here for dinner as i heard lots of positive reviews about Ootoya!

 

At Ootoya, they don’t accept reservations so it’s best to go earlier if you can. And i thought by reaching at 6.30pm should be fine but it turns out to be quite packed already.

Luckily there were 2 counter seats that’s @ the entrance & we don’t mind so we get to sit down immediately! Hee.

 

One interesting thing @ Ootoya is that they will state the level of calories for every dish! =)   But i was more engrossed in choosing what to eat & i decide to try this Sweet & Sour Chicken set!

Oh my… It’s really good including the vegetables! I think the vinegar that they used is quite special & the taste is nice & appetizing!

And good news for those who loves rice…. It’s free flow!

 

We wanted to take a picture together but due to the seating arrangement, we had to turn to the back & somehow the effect turns out nicely!

 

We saw this tall X’mas tree @ Orchard Central when we were about to leave so we just had to take one picture since it’s the X’mas season!

By now, Wenhui’s tummy is getting bigger already & i’m looking forward to see the little one =)

We walked around @ OG & Robinsons as Wenhui wants to look @ some baby stuff since she can start stocking up already. Even i myself start to look around for suitable gift already – i enjoy shopping for babies & little kids =)

 

We ended the night @ TCC Centrepoint with some nice drinks & we have the gift exchange!! And we got something for each other from Takashimaya ♥♥♥

Wenhui got me a nice braclet & coin purse while i got her this Winnie The Pooh towel set.

By the way, i must talk about the drink that i had! They have 2 specials for the X’mas season & i tried the latte. I love the chocolate X’mas tree shape thingy – it’s very nice!!

Another great X’mas meet up with my dear friend =)  I really treasure all my meet up with Wenhui now cause from next April onwards, she won’t have much free time to come out so often as she be busy with her baby!

Great day to spend the weekend & i started off with high tea @ Equinox with Ivy & Christina =)

My second X’mas celebration!

 

I just came here in Oct with my bestie but with a kid around, it was really quite hard to enjoy + the duration for high tea @ Equinox is pretty short.

But this time it’s definitely more enjoyable & since it’s my second visit, i can just focus on enjoying the food, have a nice chat with Ivy & Christina & take more pictures with them =)

By the way, they do serve laksa (just beside the pasta live station) for the weekend high tea but it’s on alternate weekend =_=  And it wasn’t available when i went! I heard it’s quite good so for those who are keen to try, maybe can double check when you make the reservation.

 

Gift exchange – we got something for each other! =)  I gave them each a luggage tag & hand cream from Crabtree & Evelyn!

And i got some really yummy chocolates from them! Thanks *hugz*

And thanks for the treat!! =)

 

 

Anyway after we settled the bill, we went to the washroom & we end up having some crazy fun together with the photo-taking!! Haha. Christina came to the washroom earlier on & was tellling us that it’s pretty nice.

 

You will see this when you are going to washroom! I thought it’s kind of nice to display all the various wines, champagnes & liquors. Thanks to Christina for helping me to take such a nice picture!

 

 A nice group picture together with everyone! =)

Another great high tea (but i just wish it can be longer – @ least 2 hours lah) & i had such an enjoyable time! And thanks to Ivy who also brought her camera, both of us took lots of nice pictures! Those who are in my facebook will get to see the pictures that she tag me =)

 

Dinner – X’mas Meet Up cum Farewell Dinner For Eva

After i left Raffles City, i took the train down to Yio Chu Kang mrt station where my brother & his gf will come & pick me up then we went on to fetch Eva.

We came to this nice little cafe which my brother found it on hungrygowhere.com! And apparently all of us like the place very much & for once, i’m not going to put the location of this place. Hee!

 

Because i just had high tea, i didn’t want to eat too much so i order the mussels! Pretty good… Mussels are fresh & i like the sauce very much!

The rest of the dishes are quite nice too! And service is ok so no complaints about this place.

 

After we are done with dinner, we shifted to this sofa seat that’s just next to us & we ordered some drinks & desserts to try!

Angeline’s hot chocolate looks really good – big serving with big marshmallow! I’m going to try this on my next visit!

Eva & i shared this Rose Beer which i strongly recommend! I’m the kind who don’t drink beer – hate the bitter taste! But this rose beer is good =)

Anyway Eva will be going back to HK soon to be with her hubby & i wish her all the best!

It’s been such a fantastic day! If only everyday can be like this!! Haha.

I started off with my first X’mas meet up with Xiuli @ North Point!

I rememer going to North Point when they were still in the midst of renovation and not much to see yet. But this time… All the new shops are opened already & since i arrived earlier, i decide to walk around & explore a bit.

 

We decide to go to Breeks Cafe for dinner as it’s been ages since my last visit to Breeks!

After we placed our orders, Xiuli passed me my X’mas gift! She got me a box of chocolates & this Calcite stone which is for my zodiac sign =)

I gave her a ginger breadman cookie & a hand cream from Crabtree & Evelyn.

I hope she like what i got for her =)

Now let’s see what we had for dinner!

 

I had the Seafood Marinara & it’s good – ingredients are fresh, pretty big portion & service was good too!

 

Xiuli chose to have the Grilled Chicken Chop with Honey Lime Sauce which looks really good too! And one of the reason why she chose this is also due to the potato salad =)  She super love it!

 

We had a great time enjoying the food while we chat! Simply love such outing with friends – just relax & enjoy nice food =)

And thanks a lot for the treat! *hugz*

We ended the night @ Ya Kun & i treated Xiuli lah! Hee… We chatted, enjoy our drinks & look @ photos and time passes very fast when you are having a good time!

Looking forward to more gatherings – it’s going to be a busy but fun X’mas month & i can’t wait to meet up with my friends =)

Last week i went to Orchard for some photo-taking with my brother & Angeline =)  My main job was to be the photographer for them! Haha.

 

My brother brought us to Bukit Merah View ( i think it’s Blk 116) to try out this teochew porridge. It’s my first time here (my brother & his gf been here before but it was quite long ago) & when i arrived, i see a long queue @ this stall. Very good business!

Food is quite good & prices are very reasonable too as the whole meal only cost around $10+.

After dinner, we went on to Orchard for photo-taking. It was fun as we walked around slowly, enjoy viewing the X’mas decorations & take some pictures.

 

Most picture were taken using their camera as i myself have already taken pictures of X’mas trees & decoration @ quite a few locations already.

i only took some @ Paragon with my own camera & the effect was quite nice!

I just love the X’mas season! =)

 

I walk passed Prada when we were leaving Paragon & i saw this. It’s so lovely =)   I don’t mind getting one if i got extra cash!

It started off with shopping @ Metro Paragon =)  Previously there was two 20% sale @ Metro but i wasn’t in a rush to replenish my stuff. So this time i had to go as some of my items are finishing.

 

Got this lovely pink polka dots luggage as a free gift from Ettusais! =)

Ettusais is 1 makeup brand which i’ve been using for quite long & it’s quite easy to fill up their rewards card after 2-3 purchase + i like their free gifts. Products which i like are the Day Protect Powder & Body Spray!

 

After i’m done with my shopping, it’s time for lunch & i decide to go to Sushi Tei as i got cravings for the cold ramen =)

It’s the first time for me to be at the counter seats & it’s a nice experience. I get to see part of the kitchen & watch them prepared the food, there were fresh big lobsters in the fish tank & yummy sashimi on display right in front of me!

It was a great lunch for me which consist of my favourite cold ramen & very fresh salmon sashimi =)

 

Since Takashimaya is just opposite the road, i walked over wanting to take some pictures of the X’mas trees. You will see the Bear X’mas tree when you enter Taka by the main entrance!

As for the Tall X’mas tree which is always @ the same spot (in front of customer service, LV area), not much difference from previous years. Just maybe a  change of colours… But still nice for picture taking though!

 

On my way to the mrt station, i walk pass Crabtree & Evelyn & this time it’s another 20% sale with POSB/DBS cards. I walked in & see if there’s any new stocks for the Mini Hand Therapy Sampler set as it was sold out during the previous 20% sale.

I was in luck as new stocks have arrived & i quickly grab a box!

By the time i get home, i was kind of tired already. Quickly take a rest before going for dinner @ Nakhon Kitchen with my family.

 

This time we order some new dishes to try as it’s the first time @ Nakhon Kitchen for my other family members.

Food is still pretty good but for my dad & grandma, they find the food a bit salty. By the way, do order the Clear Seafood Tom Yum Soup… I find it better than the one with coconut milk.

Anyway something weird happened that evening! 

I reach Nakhon Kitchen earlier with my brother & his gf  to get a table as they don’t accept reservations. We managed to get a table immediately as we reach early and my brother called my dad so they can come over to join us.

Strangely, both my brother & i tried calling my dad’s hp & the house number but there was no connection at all. I’m not sure if it apply to Singtel users only! But thankfully my dad decide to come earlier without waiting for our call.
