Has anyone been there/lives there?
I'm wondering about -
Which hotel should I stay at? There's this new boutique hotel called the LimeTree....
What good restaurant would you recommend?
Any good shopping there?
What touristy things do you recommend I should see/do?
Over the past couple of weeks, I've been deciding between Fuji's Z33 waterproof camera and the z30. I think a waterproof camera would be fun to take underwater shots... but that's not enough incentive to overlook the z33's ugly body design... So today, I bought the z30 instead (pic above). Very pretty hot glossy pink little thing. Happy! Just in time for my holiday next week too.
On Thursday, Mark and I went to Prive (Marina @ Keppel Bay) for dinner. It was our one year anniversary (well... would have been one year since we first got together, if you don't include our recent month and a half split up).
Even though we've only been apart for 6 plus weeks... everything felt so foreign when we got back together. Different. But the familiarity is starting to come back. Things are going well between us. I don't think I know of anyone who eats more foie gras than me. It's my one sinful indulgence in life... I don't indulge in like.. buying shoes... but I cannot see foie gras on a menu and not have it. YummmmI also had the pan seared baramundi for my main course. No dessert that day for me.
Speaking of Foie Gras... i thought of buying my own goose liver (foie gras) and pan searing it myself for dinner one day. So I went down to Dempsy (the grocers there sells foie gras, I heard)
And guess what? One lump of goose liver about the size of erm.... a can of coke (but not so cylindrical) costs about SG$100! AH???? Needless to say, I didn't buy it. They should sell it in smaller portions :( so I can afford to buy it and experiment.
Got some parma ham and parmesan instead. You should try this... grill parma ham in oven until semi-crispy... and then crumble a bit of parmesan cheese on top. Yummy starter. And then I made scrambled eggs and spinach for the main course, but I won't show you the picture because it looks worse than the parma ham. haha. But tasted good, ok!
Mark and I had lunch today at Orignal Sin. It's a vegetarian restaurant at Chip Bee (Holland Village). It was actually not bad... a lot of interesting items on the menu... but erm.... I just prefer meat.
But if you're vegetarian or a veg/tofu lover... then this place is for you.
Like my pink weave bag???
I also came across this book in Borders. Haha. Very useful. I should have got it for Mark as an anniversary present! (but too late now... anniversary just passed a few days ago) Staying sane when your loved one is Manipulative, Needy, Dishonest or Addicted. That pretty much describes me... lol
If you had a Self-Help book for coping with your BF/GF/Spouse... what would the title be like? Staying sane when your loved one is....... what....????
(For coping with Mark) My self help book would be titled - Staying sane while your loved one is Stubborn, Habitual, Fussy and Exacting.
What would yours be??
And lastly... It's that time again...... can someone do my laudry for me??!!!
