Masterchef Dining & Bar Singapore 2016 (1 Dec 2017 Dinner)

I’ve been watching MasterChef since 2013 when Eugene introduced the series to me.

That was the year Luca Manfe won.

Ever since then, I’ve never missed a season.

When I saw that MasterChef Dining and Bar is coming to Singapore, I was very excited. I remember when I saw the list of chefs coming though it only listed Masterchef Asia’s winner Woo Waileong (yes I watched that when it was on Channel 5) so I decided to wait and see if anyone from MasterChef USA will be coming.

Then! I realised a few weeks back that Luca was coming!! I wasn’t sure at first and commented on his instagram just to check:

And guess who the other chefs are? Audra Morrice, MasterChef Australia (and judge of MasterChef Asia) and Woo Wai Leong, MasterChef Asia! I watched MasterChef Asia when it aired on TV and honestly it was very apparent which will win.

Anyway, it was only until after the press conference last week that I decided that I had to go. Despite the price, it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to try out the food!

I sent the link to Alexis, and she saw that if we could gather 6 people, there would be a discount! Initially, most of our colleagues rejected us as they felt that it was too expensive – luckily, there are some foodies among us (and home cooks) who also knows about MasterChef and came along!

Finally 1 Dec came!
We excitedly went to Intercontinental Hotel Singapore’s Ash & Elm restaurant after work and waited for a while before they let us in. Once we went in we were asked if we wanted sparkling water or wine (both chargeable).

I don’t want to go into much detail, but they had a Mystery box challenge and a contest before the dinner. Audra was the emcee and the chefs introduced their dishes and inspiration for it.

The menu:

Food pictures (in order of the menu)!


Luca’s famouse Rabe Ravioli!


Leong’s dish – very life changing. I will never eat a better pork ever again


Best dessert ever!!

We approached Marco Pierre White (or MPW) first for pictures because Audra, Luca and Leong were busy in the kitchen. We were a bit intimidated at first because… Well he’s the Godfather of chefs. We took only 2 menus for him to autograph after a picture with him and he said, “where are your menus?” so we hurried back to take the rest of them. Haha. He’s extremely nice by the way! At the end of dinner, when we had took pictures and autographs and was walking out, he actually stopped chatting with his friend and came over to thank us and shook all our hands. 👍😊😊

Our group had a long chat with Waileong (which included a small tour of the open kitchen). I think Alexis (being her usual self) drove him crazy hahaha. It was fun though and we gained some tips from him about eating at expensive food places.

Meeting Audra was just inspiring. Especially when all I know about her was from MasterChef Asia’s episodes as well as some reading up after that. Her 2 dishes were 2 outstanding ones and I really hope to be able to get her recipe book someday and cook her dishes.

And finally Luca! Meeting him was just awesome! I gave him 2 tissue paper packs (aka napkins) and he kinda featured the group of us on his Instagram Stories lol
I’ve been a fan of him since MasterChef 2013. He’s the nicest person ever (remember him sharing butter with Jessie?? And garlic?). Even in real life he’s friendly despite the fact that he’s probably jetlagged and very busy.
If it were other MasterChef USA cast, I would most likely not want to go.

Overall, it was a great experience, and I think much better than having fine dining at a restaurant. You won’t be able to take pictures or get an autograph with the chef at a fine dining restaurant! My colleagues had fun too – which made it even better. 🙂 The organizers did well and everything was fun even though I honestly felt intimidated at first.

I wish I’d won some of the autographed recipe books though!

The Soup Spoon Taste Brazil Preview Session

20160713_185006

I had the opportunity to attend the preview session for The Soup Spoon’s Taste Brazil launch on 13 July.

20160713_185133

Brought my sister along as the fiance had dinner with his friends and it’s my sister’s birthday week.

There are 8 soups that will be launched under the Taste Brazil season of which 4 will be launched first from 14 July to 4 Aug 2016 (which we got to try), and the next will be from 11 Aug to 1 Sept 2016.

Anna aka Souperchef Anna, who’s the chef behind the Soup Spoon, was sponsored a trip by Sadia (the sponsor for the event that we attended as well) to Brazil where she got to eat and learn the different Brazilian food and how they’re cook so that she can come up with new seasonal soups. I was really excited to be able to meet her as I really really love Soup Spoon and have followed her adventures on Instagram for a while. When we sat down, we were given hibiscus tea (one of my favourite teas) and while Anna shared about her trip to Brazil, we were served the food.

We were presented with 4 soups (the first 4 that are being launched) to taste, and they are namely, Mocofava My Version, Beef Feijoada (fay-zwah- da), Vegan Caldo Verde Curried and Pumpkin Mango & Prawn Bitsque.

Mocofava My Version

Mocofava My Version

One of my favourite! It’s made of beans, some curry spice, carrot puree and chicken collagen. It was inspired by Chef Rodrigo of Mocotó restaurant where Souperchef Anna tasted the soup and created her version of it. It comes with a soft boiled egg. The curry powder was really fragrant along with the beans. It was my first taste of Brazilian styled food and it awoke my senses!

We were given a pack of this to bring home and my dad absolutely loves it as well and asked me to get more if possible.

Beef Feijoada

Beef Feijoada

“Black bean soup!” the first thing that came to the minds of both my sister and I when we tasted this. Souperchef Anna had told us that quite a lot of Brazil food uses similar ingredients as us and this is one good example. The all too familiar Chinese-styled black bean soup is now presented to us in a different way – thicker, with beef and (most interesting of all) orange bits. The orange bits brought about a burst of acidity and flavour when you bite into it which excited my tastebuds. I was a little worried when I saw that chillis were in the soup but it wasn’t spicy to me (trust me when I say that I’m usually bad with chillis).

Vegan Caldo Verde Curried

Vegan Caldo Verde Curried

We rarely get to eat kale here in Singapore because they’re expensive (I once bought a bunch for SGD$9!), so I was excited to be able to try a vegan version of the Caldo Verde curried made from kale. It has vegetarian bacon bits topped to it which brought a little bit of crunch to it. I don’t think a lot of people finished this however, but I pretty much like vegetables (along with any kind of food) so I finished it all.

Pumpkin Mango & Prawn Bitsque

Pumpkin Mango & Prawn Bitsque

I was excited to try this as I absolutely love the Soup Spoon’s Prawn Bitsque when it came out during Christmas (and also introduced a lot of my friends to try that). Mango in a soup? It was absolutely delicious! The prawn bits were generous and there were quinoa inside as well which made the soup really hearty and full.

Other than the 4 soups, we were given a treat of Chicken rice made from Sadia Chicken and coconut mousse!

The recipe for the chicken rice can be found here in the E-magazine by The Soup Spoon on Souperchef’s Anna trip to Brazil.

I really enjoyed my time and I think perhaps it’s time that I get my blogging habits back again 🙂

Making our own Ramen Burger

So a few weeks ago, I saw lots of celebrities post Ramen Burger photos on Twitter, and to be honest, it looked really delicious!

Googled a bit and found out that it’s actually quite easy to make (see recipe at Mashable here: http://mashable.com/2013/09/22/ramen-burger/)

So yesterday, we tried a bit but with our own variation (and saladdd).

image

Got the ingredients above. For the burger itself, we got Muji Ramen (SGD$1.90 for a pack of 4 small ones), lettuce pack from NTUC, and some beef patties (pack of 10).

Note that the pack of 4 Muji Ramen is enough for 2 burgers. We made like 8 packets which was an overkill, enough for about 4-6 people.

The recipe’s easy to follow and takes about 2.5 hours (for about 5 people in our case).

The whole dish including mushroom salad.

We didn’t put spring onions as per the recipe (because Eugene doesn’t like them), but I reckon it would have been nicer with it 😛

hic’cup Concept Cafe

I have this potential client that I’m trying to get and their office is in Tanjong Pagar.

After a meeting once with them, I stumbled across this new mall called 100am.

It just so happened that I saw on Deal website a deal for a set meal at hic’cup Concept Cafe located at 100am, and bought a pair for Eugene and I.

So we went last Saturday!

My Candied Citron Tea. Made up of yuzu, honey and kanten strips. Soothes and beautifies me!!

DSC_0471
Fruit and vegetable salad!

DSC_0474
Eugene’s! Can’t remember what it’s called lol. But it’s milk and grass jelly! (Item doesn’t seem to be on the menu on their website hmm)

DSC_0484
Carnivore crepe – Egg with ham (if I remember correctly) and some other toppings!

DSC_0485
Surfer’s Dude crepe – Tuna with bonito flakes, mayo and some other toppings!

DSC_0490
Their crepes are soft egg crepes. Not sure what the term for it is, but I know there’s another type that’s like without egg and harder.

The meal was definitely worth it! I was quite surprised about the portion of the drinks as we thought it would be a small cup. It’s a pleasantly big cup and we were quite full for dinner after that!

We got the meal through a deal, but the normal price is already quite affordable to be honest. Just $10.90 per set!

Re!Fill Buffet (Hotel Re!)

Disclaimer: I was not paid or obliged to do any review on this buffet but as I wasn’t able to find much info about the buffet prior to going there, I thought it would be good for those who are curious to find out what it is about to have something to read.

Won a contest for a buffet for 2 at Hotel Re!’s Re!Plenish buffet! Went with Eugene of course!

I’ve never been to Hotel Re! All I know is that it’s situated at the top of a hill. We took the train to Outram Park, and followed the signs along Exit B to the location. Quite an ulu place, but rather easy to find!

Upon stepping in to the hotel lobby, the scent in the air reminded me of the boutique hotel at Hong Kong that Desmond and his gf stayed at. Eugene was sensitive to the scent I think. His nose became very blocked afterwards. We were able to find the buffet area immediately.

Unfortunately though, the dishes were pretty less and I was a little disappointed.

There were only about 8 dishes that day, and pretty few dishes as well. I’m not sure why, but I had a feeling they don’t usually cook so less or it won’t be really worth the amount that other guests usually pay.
We kept spamming on the cereal prawns. Nevertheless, we had a fulfilling dinner where the staff gave good service.

I’ll let the pictures do the talking.

3rd trip in 2012: Random HK Trip with Desmond, Kailun and KT (13 – 18 June 2012) – Not a typical HK trip!

Long overdued post I know! But I shall post this up still! 😀

I did random stuff. A lot. This year.

So one of the most random and expensive thing I did was to agree and book tickets to Hong Kong one Sunday.
It was after Desmond told me about the SIA offer that they’re giving to Hong Kong. He wanted to go with his gf, but the catch is that in order to enjoy the offer, a minimum of 3 people are required.

Within 15 mins I made my decision, and by the afternoon, a flight booking was made. Hahahaha.

I was determined that this trip will allow me to visit places that I have never been to at HK. I was a little worried at the beginning that because of my youth (haha), Desmond and his gf Kailun will not allow me to venture to places alone. But in the end, everything was pretty spontaneous, we changed plans a bit, and I was able to fulfil my HK to do list! haha so awesome!!

Anyway, this trip was pretty good, as I made new friends with Kailun and her colleague (who joined us and was real great help. Achieved lots of things that I wanted to, which mainly would be to explore more of HK. ^^

This trip was the week before my BKK trip, and naturally, my boss was rather angry. haha. But oh wells.

Anyways, here goes!!

Night 1 (14 June)
Watched a few movies on the plane. SQ is awesome.

I had a near panic on the plane when I realised that by the time we reached HK, it would nearly be past midnight. AND that realisation that you may not get a room coz it’s “the next day” sucks. Haha. Immediately called up the hotel upon landing to make sure that I would still have my room.

Anyway, Kian Tong (KT), who is Kailun’s colleague at work could speak cantonese!! So he was the one who got a cab for us to where our hotels are located.

I checked in to my pleasantly nice hotel room at Guang Dong Hotel with 2 single beds however (no wonder they’re expensive!), and afterwards went downstairs to meet them to walk around. The place was located near lots of pubs and bars, and I got disturbed by a foreigner within 5 mins of going downstairs -.-


All for myself~

So anyway, KT was really familiar with the area and we walked around, bought a SIM card, snacks, and then went back to the hotel for the night. I really settled down pretty fast. It was rather scary to be alone in a quiet hotel room, but I enjoyed the freedom quite a bit to be honest!

Day 1 (15 June)
Woke up rather early!


Kinda miss these kind of views!


Desmond and Kailun

I remembered that KT told us about this nice dim sum place which had “life changing 流沙包” so we headed there. It was a bit weird at first, as I don’t know KT at all, but after this meal, it was all pretty okay! He’s a bio teacher I think?

The place is 添好运 (Tim Ho Wan in Cantonese) [Link at Open Rice]


Awesome chee cheong fun


One of my favourite dessert. Flower with jelly… 桂花糕! lol but they don’t do it like they do in HK!


the 流沙包! But didn’t take the insides. VERY YUMMY THOUGH.

Then they headed to the big Buddha at Lantau Island. As I’ve been there twice, I decided not to go up again. Hung out around Citygate Outlet shopping centre, mainly to buy Body Shop stuffs, use the free Wifi, and just slack.

Saw quite a few Singaporeans.

Afterwards, I headed off myself to a Nunnery!! Chi Lin Nunnery and Nan Lian Garden. They’re just side by side. Wanted to go somewhere quieter instead of seeing the noisy HK all the time!

Pretty exciting btw, travelling to the unknown. But anyway, HK is very accessible and there are loads of directions all over so I didn’t get lost.

The Garden.


Some rock exhibition

It got dark pretty soon! So I headed back to look for the rest to have dinner! Can’t remember what was the place we ate at haha.

Brought them to Tuttimelon Lolol.

Day 2 (16 June)
We met up again to have breakfast! KT brought all of us to this really hidden place to eat Tomato noodles!! I was a bit apprehensive at first, coz tomatoes are usually sour, but I tell you, once you eat one mouth of it, you want more!!!

It’s called 星座冰室 Star Cafe

Shop No. 36, Champagne Court, 16-20 Kimberley Road, Tsim Sha Tsui
尖沙咀金巴利道16-20號香檳大廈地庫36號舖


Very ulu and rather old


YUMMY

We shopped around if I remembered correctly, then headed to another place for more food.
This time, at this place where they shot a famous movie! Unfortunately I don’t remember the name of the movie. LOL

Goldfinch Restaurant

Ok, not I realised that we were basically eating the whole day LOL. KT brought us to eat “life changing wantan noodles” which turned out to be Mak’s Noodles!!

They were life changing indeed. I can’t really eat the Wantan noodles in Singapore anymore since the first time I had them last year.

They went to the Peak after that, and as I’d been to the Peak three times (YES -.-), I decided to hang around their Causeway Bay area and just nua.


Found their City Hall which is like our Esplanade


War memorial


Finally stepped into the church grounds after so many times

After that I think I hung out at this cafe near the Peak to wait for them, and then we went back. haha.

Day 3 – 17 June
Didn’t do much on day 3. Had dim sum for breakfast again!
This place apparently is famous with superstars and it’s quite interesting how it’s underground.

One of the baos is famous, but can’t remember which one 4 months on (now) >.<

Kailun, KT and I did a bit of shopping, and I got a nice leopard print umbrella. Lol. Desmond went to meet someone in the music industry in HK which links to his work here in SG.

We had some bo luo bun too. Haha. Eat eat eat non stop!

After that I set off myself to a monastry – Ching Chung Koon 青松觀. Hahaha everyone must feel that I’m trying to be funny. But anyways, just wanted to see something different in Hong Kong that not everyone in SG will go!

Unfortunately it was raining, but was still having loads of fun with the travelling all the way to New Territories! It’s a really really different place from the Hong Kong that everyone goes to.


their LRT station.
You have the liberty to whether you want to tap your card in and out at the station. But of course, most people actually do tap it. took me a while to figure out what I’m supposed to do.


Rainy Rainy Day.


Pretty nice actually.

Met a black cat after I felt eyes staring at me from a chair. Hahaha. Quite cute but i didn’t dare to touch it.

Slacked in my hotel room for a few hours, got bored watching Tv so ended up drawing eye liner, etc HAHAHA. Then met the rest for dinner after that.


Kai Lun‘s


Mine.

Oh we went to watch a HKCO ensemble performance that night. Free tickets because of Desmond’s connection! They were damnnn good! And I got to see the chinese version of a cello. Didn’t take pics, but just wow!

Then I brought them to eat BBQ food at 天后 (tin hau) and also at some famous dessert shop. hurhur. Very glad that I could still remember how to go lol.

Then we went to Stars Avenue. My 3rd time there >.< Don't go during summer. It's kinda warm but windy.


I didn’t take a pic of this before.

Quite late afterwards!

Day 4 (18 June)
Final day!! There’s a highlight for this HK trip, which was Lamma Island! I’d originally planned to go on the 2nd day, but as Desmond and Kailun wanted to go as well, so we changed it to another day. The me had a very huge struggle to whether I should stick to my plan or change it. In the end, I decided to change the day accordingly as it would be more fun with friends anyway!

I did not know that to go from one part of the island to another, you’ll have to HIKE. -.-! All the books and websites that I’d read about Lamma Island, did NOT mention it. oh gosh.

2 hours hike omg. We discovered that only after we walked along the path and it just got higher and higher.

Oh by the way, there’s a life changing tao huay along the way, that’s SUPER WORTH THE HIKE. The view at the top is also just amazing!

Lamma Island is a really quaint little place, and to be honest, it’ll be cool to live there and just chill after retirement. Hahaha.

To get there, you’ll have to take a ferry. Just ask around and you’ll be able to find the pier for Lamma Island. There are 2 ferry terminals at Lamma Island, just choose one and hike to the other one there.


Just chio


Some oily fried rice there


Oh ya, one quaint little thing there is that they don’t have full-sized vehicles there. Only small stuff like these, and little non-petrol cars I think? Even these vehicles aren’t allowed to be driven around during the day or something.

Oh and they have loads of dogs around:


Pit for dogs to poo


Life changing tou fu


Electricity Generators for the island i think


Beach

Now comes the difficult part after the beach -.-!


So high up. Do note that I was carrying my fieldpack -.-


Me


Desmond and Kailun. KT is camera shy


They have farm plots


The scary kamikaze caves. Apparently the Japanese used these caves to hide speedboats for the Kamikaze missions. >.<
At the other side


Some drink. Can’t remember but it was damn good

Basically after that, I had a bad headache and felt like puking so I stayed the rest of my last day in the hotel room -.-!
Kailun and Desmond delivered dinner to me. 🙂

Final meal of the trip with them!!

Basically I pretty much enjoyed this trip! Went to new places, discovered interesting stuff and got to know Desmond and his gf better!! Sometimes in life, it’s awesome to just do something random!! 🙂 Grab any opportunity that you have!

Cotton Bleu.

Went out with my best friend in office (since I returned to work) to try some escargots, coz he’d never had them before. I remembered I was just randomly saying that I have a craving for escargots, and my friend said that he’d never tried it before, so we agreed on having it someday.

I must say that I had a really good dinner that I haven’t had in a really long while.

So we decided on where to eat last week via Hungrygowhere.com. One of our client’s atas restaurant popped-up, and my friend picked it but the price was wayyyy out of my budget (I could buy a cajon with that amount) and some bad reviews were present too, so I clicked around and spotted Cotton Bleu. That had all positive ratings and reviews.

It’s a very nice place with a nice ambience. I realise that there are some pretty good cafes/bistros in the area that I could check out.

Anyway, Cotton Bleu is located next to Ice Edge 2!!! Nice.

Didn’t take much pictures with my DSLR. Gosh I just need something that can focus at a nearer distance =/

We got the set meal thingy. Haha.


Atas places serve bread!! Cause of my eczema returning today lol. Blame it on my greediness.

The reason why we were there. The escargots are just too good. Comparable to the one I had on Royal Caribbean! (wil blog about it soon!)


Poulet Basquaise – Basically chicken and pasta in tomato kinda sauce. The chicken here is just heavenly softttt. And the pasta was cooked just right omg!! I seldom eat chicken when I see the bones, but I finished this one.


Boeuf bourguignon – Pretty filling according to my friend! He has a way big appetite and if it’s filling for him, it means something. I tried a bit of the beef, soft and has a nice taste to it. Nothing to strong for people who doesn’t like beef.


Banana Turon – This. Is. Good.


Lavender Infused Cake – To be honest, I only know how Lavender smells like, but am guessing that the little bits in the cake are lavender flowers? The top of the cake is melted sugar. Crispy and nice. Just feeling hungry thinking about it.

(Wah just had a Déjà vu… As though I’d typed the above before)

Oh and the chef was nice who came out and asked if our food was alright 🙂

Cotton Bleu

205 Upper Thomson Road

Past week was rather confusing and upsetting. But hey it’s all ok now.
Don’t wish to quarrel with a good friend again.
And when I get upset, it’s just amazing what things I will do that I won’t regret :X

Had a good conversation, and I just feel that some people are misunderstood.
Just hope that I’m right.

Thank you, if you’re reading this 🙂

Medium – Rare

About an hour ago, I went to MegaBites at NUS to satisfy my meat craving for these 2 weeks (thankfully the food lecture did not have anything about unethical cooking of beef), and I ordered “medium-rare” black pepper beef steak.

To my surprise, the uncle behind the counter said, “There is no medium rare. It’s medium or rare. Do you want medium or rare steak?” He then gave me a lecture on how medium steak is cooked for 5 minutes and rare steak for 3 minutes as well as well-done (7 minutes). I was amused but didn’t want to quarrel with him coz he looked pretty fierce.

I was totally amused mainly because I always order “medium rare” steak at restaurants and no one asked me to choose either one. I wondered if the uncle thought I was challenging him? And the other staff behind pretended that he wasn’t saying anything. -.-“‘

I hope this isn’t how the uncle behaves.

I got pretty confused after that, and FB messaged Huzz to check that I’m correct (he said I was).

But anyway, for the reference of others:
(taken from Wiki)

* Raw — Uncooked. Used in dishes like steak tartare, Carpaccio, gored gored, tiger meat and kitfo.
* Seared, Blue rare or very rare — Cooked very quickly; the outside is seared, but the inside is usually cool and barely cooked. The steak will be red on the inside and barely warmed. Sometimes asked for as “blood rare” or “bloody as hell”. In the United States, this is also sometimes referred to as ‘Black and Blue’ or ‘Pittsburgh Rare’. It is common for chefs to place the steak in an oven to warm the inside of the steak. This method generally means ‘blue’ steaks take longer to cook than any other degrees.

* Rare — (52 °C [125 °F] core temperature) The outside is gray-brown, and the middle of the steak is red and slightly warm.
* Medium rare — (55 °C [130 °F] core temperature) The steak will have a fully red, warm center. This is the standard degree of cooking at most steakhouses, unless specified otherwise.
* Medium — (60 °C [140 °F] core temperature) The middle of the steak is hot and red with pink surrounding the center. The outside is gray-brown.
* Medium well done — (65 °C [150 °F] core temperature) The meat is light pink surrounding the center.
* Well done — (71 °C [160 °F] and above core temperature) The meat is gray-brown throughout and slightly charred.
* Overcook — (much more than 71 °C [160 °F] core temperature) The meat is dark throughout and slightly bitter.

Out.

[Blog Contest] Post Cereal Trail Mix Crunch!

I was wondering at first glance what a “Trail Mix” was.

From Wiki: “Trail mix is a combination of dried fruit, grains, nuts, and sometimes chocolate, developed as a snack food to be taken along on outdoor hikes.

Trail mix is considered an ideal snack food for hikes, because it is tasty, lightweight, easy to store, and nutritious, providing a quick boost from the carbohydrates in the dried fruit and/or granola, and sustained energy from the mono- and polyunsaturated fats in nuts.”

Ahh! I see!

Did you know? Post Cereal has Trail Mix Crunch too! It comes in 2 flavours, Cranberry Vanilla and Raisin and Almond. Here’s a picture of the Cranberry Vanilla box!

Anyway, I believe in these days, people eat Trail Mix Crunch for breakfast to have a good source of energy to start their day right. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. So it is important to have a good breakfast.

Cranberry Vanilla is a pretty interesting flavour that I have never heard of previously. Cranberries have Vitamins, Minerals, Fibers and even water content which are all good for us! I personally love dried cranberries as well as vanilla. Thinking about the combination of these two things seem pretty interesting eh?

With lots of wheat, barley and almonds as well, no wonder it’s called Post Cereal Trail Mix Crunch!

Check out Post Cereal’s website: http://www.postcereals.com/cereals/trail_mix_crunch/ for more information on their Trail Mix Crunch! Also has recipes if you want to have a new method of eating your trail mix.

And I learnt what a Trail Mix is today! 😀

Hope you enjoy your Post Cereal Trail Mix Crunch!

*By the way, do check out Post Cereal SG Facebook Page for more updates and recipes too!

X’Mas 2009 at Elves Lab

It started with boss giving us a choice on where to eat for our X’Mas lunch. We wanted to eat at some Japanese buffet place, but it turns out to be not a halal place, so ended up choosing other places but it turns out that Elves Lab had been there before (although 90% of us weren’t here at that time 😛 ), so in the end I just randomly picked Fish & Co. and everyone was ok with it. haha.

Then, Faizal was sick on X’Mas eve. It seems to be a bad “tradition” (last year was Ai Nee).

We all squeezed in boss’ Integra. Poor Melvin was squashed by 3 of us and he was so tired he fell asleep in the car.

I’d thought that The Glasshouse will be jam packed since it was X’Mas Eve, but it was only about 80% filled! We manage to get seats and here’s what we did with 2 DSLRs (Jmin’s Nikon D40 and boss’s Canon 500D): *pics below are from Canon 500D mostly taken by me but some from Boss and his gf


Sherry, Melvin and Kenneth (intern, who doesn’t smile often)


Best salmon I ever had in a while. the sauce makes me drool.


I’d almost touched the food with the lens to achieve the pic. Haha. need more practice though.


Sherry’s Fish and Chips.


One of my favourite pic because I got to take a rare image. Haha. It’s rare to see/hear Kenneth talk or even smile. Both are captured in here.


LOVE THIS!


After.


Everyone with the gift that we’d exchanged.


My posture is bad!

Went off after that to West Coast park with Huzz and there were loads of families picnicking and playing with sparklers that it got blurry and smoky watching them. Haha.
