So the family came down to Singapore last Tuesday and stayed at Festive Hotel in Sentosa. Having finished our juries on Wednesday, Ray and I had dinner with my family then headed (via monorail) to Sentosa and Ray had fun splashing about in the pool with my brother:
|Nice pool huh?|
|Ray having fun|
|"Hmm... I wonder if I can build a pool like this for my future home"|
2 days ago, James had finished his juries and so we decided to head out. He brought me to this place called "Hacienda" for my birthday dinner. Again, I had no idea where we were headed until he told the cabbie where to go. -_-"
James and the voucher he got for playing in a gig:
|Very Homey Ambience|
|The view outside|
|James: I'm H-U-N-G-R-Y!!|
|Waiting for food|
Ok I hope you're not hungry whilst reading this because I get hungry just THINKING about the food we had that evening!
|Our chocolate drink|
It was the most sinful drink I've ever had in my life. The chocolate was SO thick they couldn't have put much water in it. And there was hundreds of tiny chocolate wafer bits to chew on!
|Mushroom soup and garlic bread as appetizers|
Mushroom soup smelt heavenly, but the taste was just a tad bland. Garlic bread was good! Crunchy and flavor-full.
|How thick can you get?|
"Chicken Cordon Bleu"
|Can you SEE the cheese spilling out of it?|
Chicken was crisp on the outside, tender on the inside; mushrooms were dipped in abundance of cheese; vegetables were fresh; potatoes were boiled to perfection...
|James and his err... tomato =P|
The bill actually amounted to SGD75++ but because of the voucher, I think James only had to top up SGD20++? Worth it max!
If you're interested, it's a pretty good place to have dinner with your significant other/ family/ friends etc. And here's the info:

Spotted this while walking towards the bus stop:
We were so darn full after that sinful dinner, we figured we should walk a bit and take the bus as opposed to cabbing, which would make me feel really fat.
Next, we were off to Jurong Point to meet Boon Ping for a movie! Walked around for a bit cause we were really early, window shopped, mostly.
The crowd was crazy:
|Some game console fair|
|James and Sprite|
|More Crazy People|
|My purchase from FOX!|
Boon Ping arrived just 5 minutes before the movie was due to start. We watched this:
Was pretty good, actually. A little bit predictable, yes, but these movies always are. Nevertheless I appreciated the humor in it, and the effects were pretty darn awesome.
Yesterday, we went to photostat some scores and shopped around for sun glasses (for the Redang trip!). Saw (and tried on) these gorgeous Burberry shades that were on discount (after discount SGD280, original price SGD500!) so damn tempted to buy but my conscience told me not yet!
Anyways, we headed to Esplanade to watch Qin Li Wei in concert, and on the way there, bought this:
|Damn Cheap ok? SGD1 only!|
Concert was... ok. I didn't like the way they mic-ed the cello. Sounded WAY too reverb-ery and echoey.
That's all for now!
