HEARTSHAPED CAKE

HELLO THERE!

Meet the 'OOoo' Family! Yes, that's how we look like when we stand side by side. We love eating and are passionate about food. Maybe it is a blessing in disguise that I do not know (and have no desire to learn) how to cook as we have the perfect excuse to dine out! Food Glorious Food!

My online diary which I have kept since 2007 (migrated to this from a 2005 version).


P.S.   I do not own any facebook / instagram/ twitter account

UMESHU SET @ KOTOBUKI

We always order Calpis here but Cow spotted this Umeshu set @ $18 so he ordered two to try. The trio flavours were strawberry milk, yuzu and plum. I can't name a favourite as all were so addictive!

Food played second fiddle this time round as we were enamoured with the trio set. Kotobuki ran out of salmon belly so we ended up with these... Sigh, what a let-down. I'm sticking only to their salmon belly from now on.

THONGLOR @ DJITSUN MALL

I have never heard of this mall till this week. Cow picked me up after work and said we needed to drop by this place. When I googled the place, it only has a few tenants. That would mean it was an ultra small mall. True enough, they only had a few restaurants, some enrichment centres and 1 Harvey Norman. He refused to tell me what we were doing there till after the dinner. We had dinner at this Thai restaurant. The dishes here are pretty good. Love the salted egg prawn, omelette with prawn, tom yum. I find the green curry a little diluted while the basil pork dish was overcooked, however desserts here were extremely good! The pocket-friendly Thai fare does impress. Too bad the out-of-the-way location (for us) meant we would probably not re-visit.


He finally revealed why we came to Djitsun Mall. The screen of his Surface Pro 4 had cracked, though it was still usable. The guy decided he needed to get a replacement but it was sold out in many places. He finally located 1 in Harvey Norman at Djitsun. That was how we ended up at this mall.

KANG SHI FU

We first tried this Snow pear drink at a hotpot eatery in Chinatown Point. Glad to see it being sold at Giant. Unsure if the sourplum drink tastes nice, so I bought one to try first.

PAIK'S BIBIM

ordered 2 sets of this and their steamed egg via foodpanda. Ordered the teriyaki bowl, but there is nothing teriyaki about it. The diced chicken was way too hard. Never ordering this again.

THE SECRET LIFE OF PETS

When we first saw the trailers, we were so tickled by the cutesy Snowball, that we were bent on bringing the kids when the movie opens. I was secretly worried that the actual movie may not be that entertaining. What if they had exhausted all the funny bits in the trailers? Just like TED. Ted's funny trailer led us to see the movie but we were hugely disappointed. Thank goodness, PETS had even more hilarious bits to enchant us all! Kids and adults loved the movie so much. Cow even ordered a hp cover of Snowball online because I was saying how much I adore Snowball *lol* Can't wait to see it!

BABA CHEWS

Located at the newly opened Katong Square, it was our first time here. Serving portions here are generally smaller than other restaurants, except for my beef rendang, hence it is rather pricey IMO. Our meal (includding a hokkien mee), cost $165.

Crab cakes tasted very fresh and al dente. I would have preferred a real mantou as these sliced and deep-fried versions were hard. Check out the measly portion of gravy. Foie gras tau kwa bao. Foie gras was superb but the rest of the dish failed to impress.

For main, hubby had the pork while I went for the beef rendang. Mains were terrific. Pork and Beef were tender and flavourful, though the pork dish serving portion was more suited for ladies. I ordered chicken rice and hokkien noodle for takeaways for the kids.

2SIX CAFE AT KATONG SQUARE

I could not walk past this cafe without getting any of these! Yesterday was an uber sunny day, hence by the time I got home, these wonderful cakes looked like this. But they still tasted great! Am going to revisit this cafe to get a better pix of these goodies *lol*

*NEW* DIOR FALL 2016: CAPITAL OF LIGHT

My haul from Dior.

806 Capital of Light from their Skyline Collection 2016.

New 50ml EDP  from Dior.

I was told by SA that this lip balm flies off the shelves with estimated 10+ being sold each day. After trying it, I know why. It gives a wee bit of pink tone to my lip, while lips looked plumped with a slight sheen.

Glides on like a dream, highly pigmented so I got to be light-handed. Does apply quite thickly so I do use a cotton bud to lighten the brows.

GWP.

SABAR @ JAPAN FOOD TOWN

Cow is a huge fan of saba, hence he was very interested in this eatery which sells nothing but saba!

Omega-3 overload indeed! I hate saba but I've got to say, a meal here was all it took to change my mind. I have always thought saba is a boney fish, but it isn't. I probably got it mixed up with sanma *lol*

Saba sashimi - done in 4 ways. Fresh, vinegared, soy sauce and smoked. I did enjoy every kind, particularly the fresh version.

The homemade tartar sauce tasted heavily of ginger. I normally pile on tartar sauce when I am eating fish & chips, but I did not have to here. I was expecting a fishy taste, but nope, I did not. Lovely batter as well.

SOME NEW DISHES

Cow ordered some new dishes from East Ocean today. They are: deep-fried crispy duck with salad, chicken with abalone slices, luo han zhai (braised mixed vegetables) and zhai er with garlic bits. I thought the Zhai er was a very 'normal' dish but the addition of garlic bits does transform this ordinary dish to something greater. We loved the other 3 dishes too!

CLEANSING WATER

My daily makeup removal routine includes Biore's cleansing oil sheets for the eyeliner, followed by Biore Aqua Jelly makeup remover for the rest of the face. Cleansing waters are all the rage right now so I finally caved in and got these two to try. Garnier's bi-phase water worked better than Biore's. Biore's  cleansing water removed very little eyeliner and the liquid does sting the eyes a little. The only thing I liked about the product was that it came with a pump dispenser.

MANDARIN ORCHARD

老大又做厅长了!

We will order room service whenever we stay over at Mandarin Orchard. This time round, we had lobster laksa, bak kut teh and fish curry. Woah, the fish curry is just as exciting as the other 2 dishes! Thick, smooth, flavourful curry, yes I am dreaming of having it again.

Char kuay teow, fried prawn noodle and club sandwiches for a change. Not bad at all!

Their breakfast did not fare as well this time. Quite a boring selection.
