Fancy Dinner and A Shag?

Supperclub (Singapore)
at The Odeon

22 November 2008


The Bar

[Don't know who this guy is... but he insisted on being in the picture :) ]

There are two bars, one upstairs and the other at the main arena. The upstairs bar is spacious with loads of comfortable seats. Full glass windows but my only gripe is that because Supperclub is on the second floor of The Odeon, there's not much of a view really. You just look out to walls of other buildings (Raffles hotel, Raffles City, etc).


The Ambiance
Fantastic use of mood lighting to cast a relaxing glow on the main arena where there are comfortable white beds and plush pillows. There's something about the set up at Supperclub that makes guests feel uninhibited and relaxed. Maybe it's the lighting, maybe it's the beds, maybe it's the music... but all round us were couples cuddling, legs wrapped around each other and plenty of making out all through dinner!

The Food
Even though the atmosphere is relaxed and playful, there was no compromise on the standard of food. They have a surprise 5 course dinner menu each night. (They do accommodate people with special dietary requirements.)
We enjoyed every single dish. We had capaccio, some kind of bisque, deep fried sea bass, roast quail and lemon-butter cake for dessert (yum!).
In our bill, the food alone was $185.30 , so that's about $90 plus per head.. for 5 courses. Pretty good value. Expect to spend about $300 for 2 people including a few drinks.

The Entertainment
I would have preferred something more Cirque du Soleil, because of the whole ethereal feel of the place ... but it turned out to be more of a Court-Jester-flashing-his-pasty-white-bum type entertainment. Nevertheless, everyone had a good giggle.
There's nothing else quite like this in Singapore! To truly enjoy your experience at the Supperclub, you need to go there with an open mind, a thirst for the avant garde and an appetite for really good food.

    LOL, the biggest FARCE i've ever seen in my life? turned out that asian is a malay-chinese mix?

    fucking superficial, materialistic, piece of twat. why do you need all that publicity for? so show us how oh-so-glamorous your ang moh boyfriend and bacchanalian trysts are?

    give us men a break. NONE of the people i know will EVER, be interested in you. people like xiaxue, you, dawnyang, attention-deficit? perpetually showing us on the lil' whinges and gripes about men, worshipping the white. the world has a thousand of other things more important to attend to than your parochial blog.

    what a big, filthy disgrace to educated, sassy and beautiful Oriental women.

  2. Farcical...

    What do you mean "turned out that asian is a malay-chinese mix?"
    I don't know what you are talking about?

    Just because i go to dinner at the supperclub, and do a blog review, does it warrant judgement that my evening activities are bacchanalian? By whose narrow standards? What am I supposed to do?? Be ashamed that I had a nice evening out out? What is your problem?

    FUNNY you should label my blog "parochial" when you obviously have some issues with the way other people choose to live their lives, and you display a rather insular attitude toward foreigners ("the white").
    Are you perhaps... a comedian?

    Hey Holly
    I wonder why you even replied to that farcical, he doesn't deserve any attention from you. I wonder why he is giving you such attention when "NONE of the people he know will EVER, be interested in you". He probably doesn't belong to that group of people he knows.
    Everyone has the right to be "bacchanalian", "parochial" and "worship the white" if they choose to, although we know you are not such a person. I don't know what's his problem either, but it's not your's of my problem.
    Anyway, you and Mark look great together, and my best wishes goes to both of you! :D I reserve my comments about supperclub though lol.

    "Just because i go to dinner at the supperclub, and do a blog review, does it warrant judgement that my evening activities are bacchanalian? By whose narrow standards? "

    > rofl. amusing. i wasnt particularly referring to the supper club. i was making a generic quip to your blog. all your sexual allusions towards your male boyfriend, along with this obsession over how "chivalrous", or how "you're attracted to white men who speak good english".

    eg: Saturday, April 05, 2008
    White Men Can't Jump. Well, Neither Can I.

    oh-puh-leese. you expect us to feign some foreign lilt? ever observed how politically correct Hongkongers and Cheenamen sound when they speak english? that kind of bastardised inflection in their tongue? seriously, many of us here can speak perfect, Queen's english, many our TOEFL scores easily trounce many of our english counterparts.

    the key here is code-switching. why must we be afraid to embrace our own brand of Singlish? its people like you who're obviously insecure, thinking that Singaporean english have NO accent, no basis for comparision. has it ever occured to you that our unadulterated way of speaking itself IS an accent?

    then my question for you: do you think the majority of us, in the middle to top echelons of the society, cant speak gramatically, prim and proper english?

    me a comedian? nah. your profession is way beneath mine to even qualify.

    i really shouldn't interfere with your opinion toward Holly, but i have nothing better to do so i shall put in my two pennys' worth. :)

    you are unfair in your judgement towards Holly.

    it is not wrong to prefer "white men who speak good English". it does not mean she thinks all white men speaks good english and all singaporeans don't. it just means that if a "white man" doesn't speak good english, he's probably also out of her qualifying criteria. it is not wrong to qualify a partner based on your preferred mode of communication.

    on the other hand, it is not wrong for her to feel more comfortable with a culture (of the "white men" generally) that suits her personality better. i am in a good position to speak for her in this aspect because i don't prefer "white men" myself but i do notice my own preference of certain general racial culture, esp when it comes to dating men.

    having said this, i also know that Holly gets along very well with many local guy friends. Holly is not discriminating anybody, but you are discriminating her.

    >anonymous: let me leave with you something that she wrote, verbatim, " But I find that a lot of Singaporean men cannot do that. They can only switch between Singlish and not very good English. I find that extremely grating to my ears, and very off putting. "

    "Holly is not discriminating anybody, but you are discriminating her.

    as aforementioned. i appreciate your comments anon, so why dont you persuade Holly to migrate off with her fantastic boyfriend, stop leeching off the Singaporean government and its capable leaders.

    its called being a free-loader: professing to like white men, yet continually access to Singapore's efficacious governance. go off to your faraway land, bear children who know of NO origins, and stay far away from us. go dilute yourself. ever heard of a pinoy-chinese-eurasian-portugese ancestry? you're en route.

  11. Jessica3:48 pm

    Hi farcical,

    I think that the reason why girls like Holly and I find it difficult to date local men here is because many have a similar mindset to the one you have.

    And do, it really isn't about race for us.

    Most expats here tend to be more independent, more-open minded and also more like-minded to girls like us who would not mind having children of pinoy-chinese-eurasion-portugese ancestry.

    It seems that you are the only one that cares about race here.

    Think about it. Your comments, especially the 'pinoy-chinese-eurasion-portugese ancestry' one smacks of xenophobia and racisim.

    Should it matter?

    You are allowed to choose whoever you want to date, so I think you should respect our choices.

    In fact, date someone from another country for a change, it might open up your eyes a bit.


    Also, being politically-correct has nothing to do with one's accent.

    i am kind of afraid that if i continue talking to you, you are going to discriminate me too. lol.

    i actually agree that a lot of singaporeans can't speak good english. in Holly's post, she was talking about men, so she used "singaporean men". i cannot speak very good english myself (although i write ok, i hope), not as well as Holly anyway. and i am actually considered good in english among most of my singaporean peers. she may have found bad english off putting, but it doesn't mean that she is discriminating against singaporeans, or me. :D it is just a quality she does not want in her partner and most singaporeans guys (gals too) have this quality.

    as for migrating, it is her personal choice. i don't see any contradiction in her keeping her fantastic boyfriend and staying on in Singapore if she thinks she is happy here. she loves her friends and many of them are local. (ok Holly, I am assuming that last sentence lol.)

    Btw Holly, in case you are wondering, I just happened to read your blog again. This is Cynthia from TS (aka anon 2.58pm).

    > Jessica,


    haha. you think of me as xenophobic? think of the american's lynching of blacks in the early 1900s, the wildcard Barack Obama, how(admittedly impressive) he managed to win presidency. why should it all be a huge surprise?

    you purport that im prejudiced against whites. look at it this way: no one is completely aracial. the reason why women have less prejudices is because they have less of the "ego-complex" in them. to women, all they need is a lovey-dovey, liberal, caring, sensitive and swashbuckling man. women have less of what i call, "posssessive-raciality".

    ask the Danes of Muslim immigrants wanting to date their local women. and why france is tightening immigration laws. or why japanese prostitutes seldom mate with men of other races. similarly, think on why blacks and blondes caused such a huge furore. its not just endemic in this society, you know? its everywhere.

    you think your urbane white male professional is more open-minded, receptive to racial miscegenation? think again. ask what he truly feels when big black dongs start to snag their local white women.

    if the general population of men think that way in this world, does that make me exclusively bigoted, or less capable a male?

    amusing.

    In any case, you're beginning to get really tiresome; haters always loooovee leeching on HJ's comments box. Maybe, for that few days that you do, you get to feel like you matter in this world to some other human beings.

    Hey Holly! First time commenting here! :)

    I guess this is the way the Internet works. People can leave such disgusting comments anonymously without taking responsiblities for their words.

    Dating is a choice. A personal preference. I don't see how a preference towards "white men who speak good english" amounts to being a "fucking superficial, materialistic, piece of twat". What's with publicity? it's her blog.

    There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with that. It is Men like YOU who puts Women off from dating local guys. Please spare us your selective perception and judgements of somebody you don't even know.

    Holly, you have my support!

  16. To: Cynthia and all the anonymous readers.

    I apologise if you have been subjected to the same rude remarks and childish petulance as I have been receiving from Farcical.

    It isn't your battle, and yet you spoke up for me. For that, I am appreciative and I thank all of you.

    -----

    To farcical

    My children will have a great sense of heritage and origin no matter who my spouse is and where in the world I choose to bring them up.

    Since you are so interested in my origins (or alleged lack of origin) I suggest you read->

    http://holly--jean.blogspot.com/2007/08/my-asian-heritage.html

    so that any future overtly confident statements that you purport on my heritage will be informed statements rather than the blind (albeit confident but wrong) stabs you have been making. "malay-chinese mix" and "pinoy-chinese-eurasian-portugese".

    ---

    you mentioned "its people like you who're obviously insecure, thinking that Singaporean english have NO accent"

    I never said anything about accents.. ever. Just because you assume that a Singaporean accent is akin to speaking bad english... does not mean that I do too.

    And to answer your question -> " do you think the majority of us, in the middle to top echelons of the society, cant speak gramatically, prim and proper english?"

    No. I do not think so and have never thought so. I do not have the relevant data (borken down to such particular demographics) to make such a statement and neither do you.

    In general I have found that Singaporeans do not speak very good english. For a life partner, I am not attracted to men who speak bad english. Whether they are white or black or asian or whatever.

    Bad or Good is relative. And of course, I am going to judge based on my own standards. You cannot possibly expect me to judge based on yours.

    to anonymous @ 4:39 PM, November 26, 2008: i think you're truly a personification of this word "farcical". you dont know what im trying to imply, or even postulate? and you give a comment like this:

    In any case, you're beginning to get really tiresome; haters always loooovee leeching on HJ's comments box.

    wow, thats extremely intelligent. talk to my hand?
    and yes, i aint anywhere near an NUS grad. try oxbridge law?

    ---

    HJ> What do you mean good english in exactitude? i presume its clear and concise enunciation? many of my graduate friends can converse in decent, if not good english thank you. i suppose you belong to the "graduate society"?

    i mean, singlish has always been part and parcel of our Singaporean heritage. why must we desist from it? even my lawyer-ly colleagues arent ashamed of speaking Singlish, but when they are in court its obviously a different case. code-switching, they call it.

    so what is it so appealing about the Ang Moh Accent? is it the grandiloquence?
    objectively, i would say that singaporean scholars in oxbridge are on par, if not better than their counterparts.

    similarly, i appreciate my woman speaking good english, and i dont have a trouble snagging a girl who meets that criteria. perhaps your comments are not fair against us males?

    You have so much to learn my silly little boy.

    Anyone who’d been to Oxford or Cambridge to study law would never have written what you’ve written today. Or did your professors just give up on first sight when they met you?

    You say other countries are racist as a way of justifying your own racism? Wow, that's a winning argument. You're such a smart lad!

    HJ leaching off the state? When? How? Was that when she was a state teacher for three years? Or some other time perhaps? Maybe you're referring to some welfare benefit she's claiming that the rest of us don't know about?

    And all that Nazi-esk talk about pure blood, and diluting origins... you make it sounds like your family history stretches back a thousand years into medieval Viking times. But we all know you’re just a scrawny little local fuck who spends most of their time jerking off to western porn.

    Grow up, grow some balls, then hire yourself a Caucasian hooker... it might make you feel like you’ve balanced the scales somewhat, and stop all this nonsense you’ve been spouting today.

    I don't prefer Singaporean men and I do find that a majority of them can't speak good English. Most think they can code-switch but only a few can sucessfully.

    Had dated a couple of Singaporean guys and I am not impressed.
    Prefer to date expats but not white expats. By that I mean Asian expats but only those who can speak good English...mostly Asian American like myself.

    Why does a first class BA in law have so much time in his hands to post such hateful remarks about HJ when she has done nothing to him? Why does HJ's preference for Caucasian bother him? No life perhaps?

    Farcical, if you're out there: you're right, you are farcical in your sad pretentions of intellectual elitism as evidenced by your meandering, confusing and outdated references to cross-cultural and world events. And is this how you prop your sad sense of ego? By pathetically trotting out claims (CLAIMS, i repeat, CLAIMS) to having schooled at a premier institution? And why do you do this?

  26. Last one, I promise, Holly.

    To Farcial:

    When we speak of education, do note that more than just cultivating one's analytical and logical prowess, education also seeks to create cultivated beings - a people who through graciousness and collective wisdom seek to make the world a bit better - no matter how cliched it may sound.

    Your cowardly, vindictive and petty attacks on Holly's blog reveals a small, inward looking mind, focused on vindictive trivialities that degrade you. It's sad. You're sad.

    Move on, get out of here, think about the comments you've elicited through your petty posts and re-evaluate the education you claim to be receiving. For, you appear awfully uneducated right now in our eyes.

And as someone noticed here before, for a lawyer, you've got suspiciously way too much time on your hands to read a blog that you don't even like.

    I agree with Anon 6:69 PM's take on Tim's comment.

    Picking up on someone's misspelling and be nasty about it when it could have easily been a typo does sound a tad mean and petty.

    And his comment on 'scrawny little local fuck' does sound racist to me. So just because Asian men have smaller frame does not scrawny and little they make.

    Maybe he wanted to come in as HJ's defender, but with that sniggering holier than thou attitude of his, he ended up sounding as childish as what he was attacking at.
