Sometimes it is rather nice to be doing a back dated post as it brings me back to place and relive all the memories again. Guess I am just so sentimental!
But the problem comes when you try to recall the details of the food and all, you realise that you need to do a little more homework to get the post with the correct facts. :-p
How long ago did we have Brunch at P.S Cafe? One and a half years ago! *gasp* Well the good thing to note is that we are still friends! hehe..
Claris and I arrived on time and got ourselves settled at the restaurant while waiting for Jen who was still at home when we were already at P.S Cafe.
We kept busy with our cameras and our chatters in the meantime.
Latte for Claris. At least I think it was latte….
Cappuccino for me.
As soon as Jenn arrived, we ordered our brunch choices.
Jenn’s P.S Big Bacon & Eggs.
And for me? As predictable as you can imagine, it was Eggs Benedict for me. For Eggs Benny, it is all about the Hollandaise sauce but the sauce tasted just a little flat without much tangy taste.
We ate and we chatted. We drank and we chatted… And we felt a little peckish and considered some desserts.
In the end, it was the Lemon Meringue & Chocolate Brownie.
I loved the meringue bits but the lemon paste in the pastry was just too sweet with the meringue and the ice cream. As for the brownie, nothing much to fault it except for it being extremely sinful!
By the time we finished all these food, it was already close to 6pm. We were there for close to 5 hours and we could have gone on and on with our conversation if not for our individual dinner appointments. Thinking about it makes me smile at the memories and looking at the pictures now makes my tummy rumble.
Should we head there again soon girls? ;-p
Hope everyone had a great Christmas weekend!
My Christmas weekend was spent filling up on delicious food, catching up with friends and family and simply enjoying the three days break!
Dress: Forever 21, Belt: H&M, Shoes: Melissa
Headed to MBS to spend the weekend.
And ended my Xmas eve gatherings at my auntie’s place over BBQ in the cool weather.
How I could resist the temptation of wearing another red dress for this festive weekend?
I guess I shouldn’t really be surprised that the congregation of two Geminis leads to such amazing plans!
It happened over lunch where we talked abt our birthdays and the little treats that the company offers to pple celebrating their birthdays.
And I guess the rest was history! We booked our tics out of town even before we wrapped up for the day!
Grinning my way to slumberland 🙂
When Claris knew that I was having a short break away from work, she very sweetly offered to take leave to hang out for a day!
Our very initial plans was to head to the east for some leisure cycling, but as the day drew nearer and the sun seemed more relentless, we decided we would retreat a more comfortable, temperature controlled environment. A laid back afternoon tea, of chatters and laughter. Perfecto!
We arrived at TWG at ION Orchard at about 15 mins to 3pm and were seated immediately.
Claris got herself a 1837 Tea Time Set (S$19), which consisted of a choice of TWG tea and choice of 2 freshly baked scones or muffins served with
TWG Tea jelly and whipped cream or 1 patisserie from the trolley. Her choice of sides are the 2 freshly baked scones.
I chose the Chic Tea Time Set (S$32),with petite selection of three finger sandwiches from the Royal Set which consist of a Prawn with Silver Moon Tea infused cream,
Smoked salmon with Mascarpone and chives, Roma tomato and Moroccan Mint Tea infused sauce. And also choice of 2 freshly baked scones or muffins served with
TWG Tea jelly, like Claris I chose the scones.
For the choice of tea, I asked for a recommendation instead of the usual teas that I will always choose. The staff was very friendly and patient in narrowing down the choices of tea I like and the kind of flavours I preferred.
The finally recommended me the Eau Blanche Tea, which I found out later that it was an ethereal creation that unites a fragrant white tea, a fine infusion of garden herbs and spring forest wildflowers. A remarkable creation that offers an enchanting cup, as light as silk. Light and fruity splendid for tea at noon.
The two scones, which were a little disappointing as it was a little too dry and crumbly for my liking. By the time my sandwiches were served, we were so engrossed in our conversation that I forget to take a picture of them.
The TWG jelly and whipped cream (under the silver cover).
This was the friendly staff who recommended me the choice of tea to go with my set. Felt so sneaky taking such a picture.
Here’s what i wore for the day.
Met up with my friends at Robertson Quay for dinner. We didn’t quite know what we wanted to eat and while waiting for Jon to join us, we walked around to survey the restaurants and came across a very authentic smelling and looking sumiyaki restaurant. Sumiyaki is the method of cooking the food that was skewered onto bamboo sticks and charcoal grilled.
And the numerous awards displayed at its entrance lured us to try it out.
It was a really cool night after a heavy down pour and all the seats outside, which has a view of the waterfront, are taken up and had to settle for indoor seats. Be prepared to smell “smoked” when you sit indoors.
We ordered quite some dishes for sharing and each of us had our own mini mains.
Shan’s yummy garlic fried rice which I kept picking from. : p
My sesame laden cold udon which is extremely fragrant and addictive to slurp up.
All the dishes that we ordered are extremely nice with the exception of the gyoza, aka pot stickers, which tasted rather normal. The pricing for the dinner was rather decent. Not too expensive, neither is it cheap. Fairly priced, I guess for the quality of the food and its taste.

Hopped onto Jon’s car after dinner to head to Prive for some drinks and we fooled around in the back seat with his safety wear.
Those clear goggles reminded me of Science Lab in school where we had to put them on whenever we have to heat up some solution in a test tube with the Bunsen burner! Though I think these are way cooler with the yellow strip on the top frame. haha.
We had an extremely bad service experience at Prive. The staff spoke to us in a very sarcastic, impatient tone when he was taking our orders and even made some caustic remarks which were totally uncalled for. To rub salt to wound, he had to provide a totally different standard of service to our neighbouring table who coincidentally or not are Caucasians. Seriously!?
Anyway, here’s what i wore.
The Year of the Tiger has never been the choice of couples to get married as traditions has it that a union made in the Tiger year would lead to lots of arguments and conflicts leading to a short lived marriage.
I guess couples will prefer to err on the side of caution when it comes to decisions for the rest of their lives. Probably it is good to get settle down when the stars are all aligned but that is just the baby step in making the marriage work.
With the end of the year of the Tiger, I have received a couple of wedding invitations, some of which I regretably could not it due to other prior arrangements.
I attended my first wedding in the year of the Rabbit within the first 15 days of Chinese New Year! Kelvin and Jas’s wedding was held a couple of days before Valentine’s day.
So happy for Kel as he was extremely happy on his wedding. Looking back at the time when we were working together, he seemed like a changed person. Well in a good way. It is rath er hard to put down in words but we agreed amongst ourselves that he is just very happily in love.
Wishing him and his beautiful wife a blissful and loving marriage!
I didn’t bring my camera that day. Rather I forgot to bring my camera. Switching bags early in the morning while rushing to get out of the house, there are always bound to be chances I will forget something!
Only one picture with Pammie taken with my phone for the time being while I wait for the pics from the others.
Here’s what I wore for the night.
Love the pleated front design of this muted gold dress.
Known as “Party” in a French creole, Zouk has been living up to it’s name of being a party for the past 19 years.
Talking about Zouk brings along memory of Mambo Jambo and the unison of hand movements on the dance floor. Till today, there are still hordes waiting to gain entry to Zouk on Wednesday nights.
For a club so popular through close to two decades of partying, you can expect the queues to be snaking on the night of its birthday celebration even though there was heavy drizzles.
Here’s what i wore that night without my jacket….
