We headed to Coronation Plaza for one of the best vegetarian food in Singapore

Spa Espirit @ Dempsey

26 Aug

Went for a spa with June during the weekend
cause I won the spa vouchers during the bake sale as well! (:
and I must say
They won the best spa award in 2007 for a GOOD reason!
Good service, good massage, good everything! (:
the rooms were nice and comfortable. like. OMG haha.
I loved it. I wanna stay there. haha or at least bring the the whole place back to my house!
I did hot stone massage for the first time
and it was SO GOOD! hehe

after that. June treated me to tea at Barracks.
the plus is – It’s just downstairs! haha
and we had all the chocolatey goodness. hehe it’s not funny!

their warm chocolate toffee cake!
nice. but would be even better if it’s really warm! hehe
kinda cold by the time we got it. but still good!

moist and soft chocolatey centre! (:
how could anything beat that?!?!

spanish donuts! (:
i miss having these in Melbourne.
so decided to order them! hehe

dip with some milk chocolate
and all you can say is… AWESOME! (:
and of course. YUMMERS!

with all the chocolate we had
we have to order some hot tea to go with it.
I had white rose tea which was nice and citrus-y (:

June was nice enough to try the tea coupon I had which gave us a Muah Muah tea!

lucky thing she likes it! (: hehe
i hope so. hehe

well. it was a great weekend
with great company!
But somehow, whenever we go for a spa. I will be sick!
down with a flu. Always! haha
it’s so weird.
but thank you for a nice Sunday!


26 Aug

Had lunch with Gladys (my cousin) a week ago
didn’t have a chance to put the photos of lunch up!
She brought me to this place in Taka
that had pretty good pasta which I never knew existed! (:
it was kinda fusion
but I really liked it.

the prices were also very reasonable for the portion of the food.
Only thing I was disappointed about was I wanted to try their smoked duck salad
btu they were out of salad in the early afternoon!
I guess I will head back to try it some other time (:

Gladys had the fried ebi prawn with aglio olio
and it was really nice. (:

and I ordered the baby scallops with creamy fish roe sauce.

it was sooo good!
though I couldn’t finish the pasta. hehe
but it was really awesome! (:
Loved it!

Thanks cousin for introducing me to this place!
hehe. I will definitely go back when Lester is back! (:

*one more place to add to the list baby!*

Sunshine After the Rain

23 Aug
Although I had a bad start at work yesterday morning
But my principal was awesome standing up for me infront of a parent.
and I’m feeling better. Though a bad start at the beginning of the day
Really spoilt the whole day at work.
But well.
looking at the students really cannot stop a smile from reappearing on my face (:
I’m sure you’ll see why after the photos that follows :

Always a class favourite activity of the day

Picture talk also gets their attention (:

other things done through the day :

awesome yea? (:
Just thinking about what they achieved in a day
I would just smile and feel fulfilled for at least the day
This is what I am so gonna do next time.

House @ Dempsey

21 Aug

Remember when I won the bake-off and I had the dining vouchers given to me?
(as well as spa vouchers!)
it was expiring on the 29th of August!
So I booked a table for 4 and we went for dinner last night after work
Very rewarding (:

I must say I had high hopes for how the food will turn out
and I was looking forward to having at least one dessert
and I wasn’t disappointed at all!
The food was good, and small portioned!
the dessert was small as well. but very good!

This was what we had for the night :

(excuse the quality of the pictures, my camera batt was low. So i used my dad’s camera.
and since it wasn’t a canon, I was quite confused when using it. haha)

mummy’s signature crispy belly pork
it was done perfectly!
and the meat wasn’t too fat
the pickled vegestables also complimented the dish.

I had the FOIE GRAS! (: haha
the most expensive dish for the night
with smoked duck.
it was SOOOO goodi tell you.
melts in your mouth!
only thing I didn’t like was the pickled onions. hehe oops.
Needed baby to eat them for me!

a close up shot! (:
nice eh? hehe

Dad’s rack of lamb
done to perfection. (:
he enjoyed it alot!
I’m not a very lamb person
it was a bit to fatty for me.

kor’s sliders with blue cheese and bacon!
with fries and sweet potato chips which I love! haha
but he say the burgers were not as good as his! hahaha (: FOR SURE LA!

the dessert I ordered was their strawberry shortcake with vanilla bean cream
it was soooo good!
it’s warm on the inside!
together with the vanilla bean cream = TO DIE FOR! haha
im serious. very good. (:

the only thing I wasn’t too happy about was the ice water we had.
I asked for ICE WATER.
but they gave me expensive bottled water!

CHEAT MY MONEY! – $11 okay! haha
expensive water!
i was so angry! cos i saw them serving other tables like the free kind? haha
next time, I’m going to say TAP WATER. haha
oh wells.
lucky the service was top notch! (:
so it topped our night. hehe

nice ambiance,
nice company.
