today is SSD's birthday.

:D went for lunch at mushroom pot orchard. surprisingly it was rather empty during lunch time. not at all like dinner time. i guess a reservation was unnecessary. lol.

the buffet lunch came with 5 house specials. was actually more looking forward to this than the steamboat itself.

1. monkey head mushrooms in house dressing

2. crispy squid with wasabi sauce

3. shrimp spring roll

4. golden fried shiitake mushrooms

5. beancurd mushroom roll

then came the steamboat. we got the 鸳鸯, which was half spicy 麻辣, half wild mushroom soup.

of cos we ordered much more than these...

birthday boy peeling prawns for me us! muacks! XD

i preferred the mushroom soup over the 麻辣 this time. i didn't remember the latter to have so many chilli seeds! boo. the mushroom soup, on the other hand, was more 香 and even more so after we added the prawns. yums~

after eating for a whopping 2 and a half hours, we slowly made our way down to the flyer, cos SSD managed to get a 1-for-1 for the flyer. (macdonald give him birthday present. no fair!)

waited till it was darker before heading upstairs. and unfortunately, i still freaked out. but it was definitely a better and more romantic ride with SSD. ^_^

happy birthday! :)

still no cure for the common birthday

cute not cute not??!? :D brought my bobble head pen to office and it sure made my mood a tiny bit better at times. especially the little tongue sticking out at the side. kawaii~!

281010 - thursday

best birthday so far in recent years! oreo cheesecake from secret recipe in the morning...

then colleagues surprised with a card, gifts and...guess what? flowers!

super cute the flowers. and the doll-purse. they say look like me. where got lor?! lols. lucky got colleagues like that, or else dunno how to survive so long. lalala~

but the most surprising would probably be SSD appearing right outside my office. no fair! with his iphone, i never know if he's msn-ing with me at home or outside. he go 私会 i also won't know. booo.

and he appeared with these...

flowers and chocolate; so old-school lah! but i so likes. ^_^ and the flowers received many compliments lor. lols.

and then pizza for lunch!

the day then passed pretty fast, and SSD came to pick me up. went for dinner at watami again. we had the same set but chose different dishes.

1. ice lemon tea and plum soda. the soda is pretty amazing. at first it's just 1 layer of soda and plum 'paste', but after some time the soda mixes with the plum and it becomes very yummy.

2. salad

3. omelette (?) with meat inside. i like the sauce.

4. butter corn and potatoes. first time was nicer.

5. fried chicken

6. mixed tempura. this time we ate it hot. certainly nicer!

7. cold kimchi ramen. quite refreshing, but there was this distinct spice taste (not kimchi) that i somehow didn't quite like.

8. salmon hotpot. this one made me feel cheated. there was only TWO small slices of salmon inside!! the rest were meat slices. >_< and sweet soup turned to salty gravy after boiling for awhile.

mad full after that. went for a short walk then home sweet home.

... ...

:D my ♥ looking at my ♥. awwww~

yet another gastronomic post

celebrated an early birthday with family at seafood international. SSD managed to get us a private room. me likes! :D

1. crispy mini squid & deep fried soft shell crab

2. double boiled cordyceps chicken with chinese herbal soup

3. baked sea bass in claypot

4. fried crayfish with black pepper sauce

5. thai baby kai lan with assorted mushroom

6. chilli crab with buns

7. seafood hokkien noodles in claypot

last dish was the lovely pomelo sago with mango cream dessert that i last had at jumbo changi and fell in love with. lols. too bad i was too full to have second helpings of it.  hmmmm. totally enjoyed dinner tonight, even though it burned a big big hole in my pocket. (second consecutive month my accounts are in the reds, but let's not talk about that. :P)

more good food next week! can't wait! ^_^

... ...

the korea gp was surprisingly good for hamilton this afternoon, as compared to his last few races. webber crashed out, taking rosberg with him, and hamilton gained 2 places. then vettel's engine failure allowed hamilton to climb up and finish in second. at least a podium this weekend! but looking at his championship points, i don't seem to have much confidence anymore. =\

... ...

up to the last 5 episodes of  读心神探, a new drama series about this senior inspector who is well-versed in reading the behavior of  people. he goes around solving crimes with this skill of his. besides my interest in detective/crime dramas, it's also pretty interesting to see how our subconscious movements can eventually give away our thoughts and feelings. makes me wanna go attend this course too. lol!

monday blues coming again. hope this week goes well. *cross fingers*

happy birthday 妈!

BOO! i can't use my Princess nickname in the office anymore! all because my manager CH told Hel over lunch that he's been waiting for his princess. so now whenever PL calls me princess, i get goosebumps. eeeeks!

... ...

here's a pictorial post to tantalize your taste-buds. wanted to meet up with 妈 to celebrate her birthday, and after a series of discussions, we ended up at riverview hotel.

started off with green tea tofu and pickled cucumber appetizers.

and then the main course(s)!

california maki

butter mushrooms. we all felt that it tasted weird.

salmon handrolls. little rice, big slices of salmon. very nice!

complimentary bbq prawns. i don't quite like this as the 'prawny' smell was very strong.

zaru soba.

chawan mushi

ebi and whitefish tempura

fried age tofu

no idea what this is but it's super oily!



tofu salad

teapot soup. we all kept laughing when it was served, but it turned out to be yummy! we ordered 3 pots of this, though it's actually just soup (i don't know what soup) in a teapot.

sliced fish cake. very normal.

simple stir-fry teppanyaki veggies. but so nice that we ordered 4 plates in total.


salmon teppanyaki

veggie tempura

cold tofu

lotus root tempura (damn blur; laughing too hard.)

complimentary salmon head

and a whole lot of other food that i didn't eat.

totally broke now; $33++ for buffet dinner (we got 10% off through SSD's connections). but satisfied with crazy dinner. all of us laughed so much and probably made a nuisance of ourselves (as always!), though we don't really care. ^_^

more eating later tonight. really am getting fatter! booooo.

... ...

for once i'm actually looking forward to genting trip next month. even though it's probably gonna be awkward. hmmm. i guess a whole weekend with SSD is too hard to resist. lols!
