My Birthday Celebration 2016 with Charming playing Junior Monopoly!

i often rave about how sweet Charming can be right? Well, check this out for yourself....

Now follow me, AWWWWWWW! 

Such a charmer at this young age!

God knows how long he will continue to work his charms on me like that - i mean, he's already showing signs of growing up so its matter of time. But yeah, this bubble of being his Princess is still so sweet - its a very warm fuzzy feeling!

Dinner is over at Rice & Fries (of course!) haha

and its a wonderful day to be here coz Chef Ken is trying out some new recipes, hopefully he adds them to the menu! 

Like this salmon salad....

It is crazy good! the salmon is medium rare so its really tender. The sauce is sesame sauce and its so addictive, makes me just want to keep going. The cherry tomatoes are so sweet!

Another R&D dish today is Poutine! Chef Ken's version of it...

thick cut fries! mashed potato, CHEESE!! the gravy was SOOO GOOD! he made the mashed potato on his own and it was incredible. Im so missing it now! Especially since the mashed coz its not those instant kind where its too smooth. I like my mashed to be with some textures, like some slightly chunkier bits of potato amidst the mash, oh god i love it!

fried drumlets!

Crab bisque!

with a generous amount of crab meat!

and for mains, i ordered a poached salmon because i saw on the menu it read.. comes with mashed potato...

yeah, i couldn't get over their mash! freaking awesome!

and the salmon, doneness was also great! Pink on the inside, soft and yummy!

Food aside, Rice & Fries' appeal to families will be how its a very family oriented restaurant. Simply coz Chef Ken himself is a father of 3 super adorable young boys. They hang around the place at times and that allows the busy chef to balance work and still spending quality time with his precious little ones.

and check out and cheeky Nicholas!

was about to cry until he saw the camera and decided to smile instead!

and this is Lucas coming in when i was trying to take picture with my salmon steak - can't decide if he's photobombing me or i am actually photobombing him! hahaha

Xinhui was also roped down to come catch up with me over dinner today...

and more so also coz Charming wanted to kai zhang his monopoly junior!

the junior version is a much simpler version (i know, obviously) and instead of properties, you buy parties! theres the princess party! 

andddddd there really is a princess birthday party! They surprised me with one of my favourite desserts they serve, rainbow cheese cake!

always a fun and yummy time at Rice & Fries! they are just like family! 

Video of my time there!

Hunny Bunny June 2016 date night - Charity Work!

There has been some couplehood downtime between bunny and me. 

Today was the planned date night and this is the scroll for today...

I appreciate how she did up these scrolls and each unscroll is just so meaningful. Like she obviously knows how i enjoy these volunteer work stuff and added this in. Importantly, i also love creating memories with her on new activities.

But, things have not been rosy for us. So much so that i had actually thot it may be pointless to go ahead and in fact even last month's date night just went on with endless quarrels and all.

But bunny said she wants to go ahead and without any concise decision, I decided to go ahead so as to not break any routine or tradition.

We were just going through like this vicious cycle of unhappiness that we both wish we could snap out of but just fell deeper into it over a million and one possible things.

So anyway, OOTD today. Along with the book she got me for my birthday. Langleav is such a gem!

we really didnt manage to find time to head down to any organisation for the volunteer work so i reached out to VSA and found out in terms of donations, they need paper the most. So we headed down to Art Friend to buy paper... 

a picture for the record... 

after getting the papers and brushes, we headed to meet Eileen, Rochelle and Charmaine for dinner. 

Rochelle highly recommended this Ah Pang steamboat located at Mei Ling Street...

Rochelle is definitely quite a regular here and she is full of raves of their steamboat...

the soup was not bad and i must say its very reasonably priced. They have very fresh and huge prawns. I usually won't eat the prawns for steamboat coz its usually very small but i actually liked the ones they have here. 

meat selection wise, i found it so so. 

importantly, the place was hot, no air con! 

But rochelle was very nice and hospitable - machiam like her shop, preparing food and all for us... 

the study groupies....

we shifted over to Bingki for Bingsu after dinner for more chats and of coz for the yummy desserts!

Tried this formage cheese cake they have there and its really pretty good! 

the cake was moist and the cream cheese in the middle was amazing! 



which they all really liked it. i am not much of a honeydew person.


i love the watermelon! its so refreshing! the watermelon is also pretty sweet!

and another one of my fav flavour - injeolmi! its somewhat called korean rice cake...

i don't actually like the korean rice cake but i like the power. goes very well with the milky fine ice and those almond flakes! yay!

and we again couldn't resist and order one of their cuter looking ones with a bear/animal design. This time, in chocolate...

don't quite fancy the chocolate flavour as much. Still much prefer the watermelon and injeolmi one!

Like to come to bingki for its flavours and also the fact that they are 24 hours/open till late (like 3am). The place is generally clean but the floor sometimes seem to have this not fully cleaned smell at times.

Service is ok though sometimes the staffs seem overworked so occasionally bin chao chao. But sometimes quite nice.

But overall, we had a good time here!

Although, towards the end, Bunny and i went into another big downtime. we argue so much that i sometimes don't remember why we quarrel anymore.

probably we shouldnt have gone ahead with the date night coz also dunno if there will be one in july anymore.

Sweet bunny lunch delivery

Was in a meeting when bunny informed me she ordered food delivery for me. She said the person is actually already here but meeting was still going on so she said I can call the person when I'm done.

I thot it was weird Coz usually delivery folks would drop it on my desk n go? Just as I was going to ask her, she gave me the no. Of the delivery person - her mobile no. 


Sweet bunny lunch delivery! 

Dinner with the local leader in plus size model

a lunch meeting at Jaan! 

Lunch with a view! 

The seating capacity for the place seems pretty small but i like the white/gray decor...

complimentary amouse bouches....

one exiting thing about fine dining will be these cute little complimentary starters and how they always look so special and cute!

this nest like tartlet below is fish and chips!

reminds me of what i saw at Burnt Ends.

Truffle and foie gras macaroon!

the fluffy complimentary bread thats textured like croissant...

part of the menu was their signature soft organic hen's egg...

served in a very interesting nest like thingy!

Pretty good!

Cod fish...

and the ultra tender beef that was served in replacement of lamb... 

The beef was really ultra tender and very good. Not sure i like the plate though. The more i look at it, the more it reminds me of how trypophobic i may be....

truffle cheese and truffle ice cream...

although it was a very small portion, the truffle ice cream was really good! if only they serve it in bigger portions!

the following is some cucumber ice cream or sorbet i think...

probably something to cleanse the palate.

Dessert was a chocolate moose like chocolate thingy that was so good!

also a pleasure meeting up with Chef Kirk!
