Vanilla Bar & Cafe

Image
Discovered this lovely little restaurant hidden along Boon Tat Street, a quiet find amidst daily CBD crowd. True to it's name, you will notice there is a subtle vanilla scent as you enter the restaurant. It even has a small outdoor sitting area for about 5 to 10 people, which looks like a totally different place with it's lush greenery. Food served is a fusion of local and japanese, which I find quite refreshing. I ordered the Mini Burger sampler , which is two mini burgers , one with pulled pork, and the other with pork katsu. Love the slight spiciness of the pulled pork... and would definitely go for the "full" pulled pork burger the next time. My colleagues ordered the beef japanese curry rice, grilled cod fish with baked potatoes and sausages with rosti.... they all tasted yummy! I cannot seem to find anything really wrong with them... Oh! and i forgot to mention their bacon wrapped enoki is juicy on the inside and crunchy on the outside. I can down 5 of them

Pizzeria Mozza @ Shoppes at Marina Bay

Image
A long overdue meet-up with some ex colleagues brought us to Marina Bay Sands... which was really my first trip there since it opened its doors last year. Daph read in 8 Days that Pizzeria Mozza got a 5.5 / 6 rating.. which is apparently (according to her) quite rare. I actually don't really read 8 Days... so don't really know what the ratings mean... so i just went with the crowd and the recommendation. Well, i would say, it sure did not disappoint. Mozza has quite a history, and is actually the same the way it is in California. There is actually two parts to Mozza, the more upscale Osteria Mozza that serves culinary creations from the chef's  travels. Pizzeria Mozza on the other hand is more casual that serves up wholesome italian pizzas. I didn't manage to take many pictures, coz i was famished.. and was licking my fingers, savouring every bit of the food Some of the dishes i can remember that's got me wanting more are: - Fried Potatoes with Rosemary leave

I have always wanted to blog about how i've got lots of techie stuff lying around in my house , and it's truly a wonder why hubz is not an engineer of some sort. Well... just doing a mental scan of my house now, I have got 2 e-books (nook and kindle), 4 portable hard-drives,  4  digital cameras,, 4 wireless mouse.... ermm... 1 ds lite, 1 psp, x-box kinect... and these only makes up the tip of the iceberg. Hubz' love of all things techie is beyond my comprehension, just like how he cannot understand why I am constantly browsing reebonz.com, and how my eyes light up at the sight of Gucci, Agnes B, Coach, Kate Spade and the list goes on. I guess I stand to be the major beneficiary of his interest, thus should not be complaining... however, I often get pangs of guilt for not being able to fully appreciate the beauty of these toys. Other than the iPad, and now my MacBook Pro... all other gadgets he got for me have been banished to the cold palace... like my DS Lite and possib

Merry Christmas everyone! I know i have been pretty quiet both on FB and here for the past few weeks...been trying to make some changes, and adjusting to them. When i made the decision to move from Aviva to my current job, i have in some way made my christmas wish(es). I want to change the way i live my life .... i want to be able to spend more time @ home, doing the things i love. So far, the past few weeks seem quite promising , so let's see how i go from here. Other than changing jobs, we've got a new member in the family. Mum has let go of Vespa's passing, and opened her heart to accepting a new dog. We adopted and welcomed Mickey , the mini maltese to our home. I've also made baby steps to re-visit my plans for UrbanNook. I have put my maiden business in cold storage for about 9 months now. It is about time squeeze some time out of my daily schedule to fulfill my dreams. SO.. here's doing a little advertisement... there will be new stock coming in in Ja

Hong Kong – Dec 2010

Only 3 days outta here… but thoroughly enjoyed the trip with Vic. Out first trip out together…and did some serious walking…(ermm…. no… i should say SHOPPING!). While only 3 days… one of the best thing i enjoyed was Agnes B. The peops there simply love the brand, and if you take a trip down to IFC… you will see a corner of level 2 (i think) turned into an Agnes B concept store… everything you want to find relating to the brand is there. That includes a cafe, a chocolatier and even a restaurant. Yummy! Let’s do this again soon! Korea next?
