Being a lazy pig and crowd lover, i still like to stay with my in-laws but the thought of having our own little space, leaving aside the household chores and monthly expenses, makes me excited....

My lucky number but didnt strike 4D over the weekend..... Luckily i never buy hehe
We walked all the way to the starting line as the bus which was supposed to ferry us there was full. We sweat before we reach the starting line.... Saw singa the lion along the way and took some cute pics which makes us look like childish students.
Initially I planned to run and walk through the 5.6 km but got tempted by taya to take shortcut when she called me just as I was around the finishing point so in the end i only run abt 1km and walk 1km, reach the finishing line in my fastest timing 25 mins. =)
The food in the hospitality tent was not fantastic but the drinks was not too bad, there is Brewerks beer and wine. I took one out of the tent to offer to Di who was also there for the run sponsored by her company, it makes her colleagues so envy of her. hehe.....

Although it is my oversight, I will still want to complain.... why did HDB build another two more steps after the flight of staircase?????
BE and MIL were stunned at the moment they saw me fall. The first thing that came to my mind was... is there anyone else who saw that? It was so embarrassing.

We are still early for dinner so decided to check out the arcade... We feel a little out of place but still enjoy the whole process... miss those young days but we are not super old now either hehe.... We played House of dead, basketball, mario daytona...
I chose Yoshi, Di chose ??? funny cat??? and Hei chose luigi. We played twice and the results is still the same but the one who won the first prize has no driving license...
It was really fun and i bet i will miss the times spent as MCQ together. =/

Mich and daff shared ramen, tonkotsu and some sides while i have the 'selfish' sushi set for $43.
There is this conveyor belt in the restaurant which i think is interesting but super silly. It is not like the usual sushi shop where there are diff selection food on it for consumers to pick, it is for sushi platter to be delivered to your desk by the conveyor belt instead.
I saw my platter and was super excited but it somehow got stuck and then miss the exit and my platter went one round again... Feels a little sian as it will lose 10 mins worth of freshness but when the food arrives near my table again, it got me excited as it has all my favourites...

We had Black pig shabu shabu ramen, Black pig tonkotsu ramen... the pork is super tender....
wanted to try that after watching a HK serial which focus on japanese cuisine.
Otoro is the premium part of tuna belly that usually does not get a price on any sushi house menu. Otoro is they best part of the tuna. Because otoro is from the belly of the tuna it is fatty. Otoro is light pink in color, sometimes almost white, and creamy looking. Otoro will leave behind a swirl of oil on the surface, and when it hits your pallet, it will melt. The fattiest portion of the tuna, found on the underside of the fish.
chutoro is the belly area of the tuna along the side of the fish between the Akami and the Otoro. Often preferred because it is fatty but not as fatty as Otoro.

Here's the results.....
On the first night, i got awoken by the fake eyelashes as it kind of pokes my eyes till i tear a little. I feel as if i never wash away my make up when i sleep.
Final verdict - i will not do it again unless necessary as it is creating more uncomfort to me but will have to endureat least after CNY since i paid $75 for this pair of eyelashes.

I had today's special as my main course, it is lobster thermidor as recommended by the waiter. Not really sure whats thermidor and if the method of cooking is really nice but decided to go for it instead of having it steamed or fried or grilled. Then when my food arrived and after consuming, i think it is a wise choice - cooking lobster meat with a cream sauce, put into a lobster shell, sprinkled with cheese, and browned. I love it! It costs only $39.95 on a Tuesday but $59 on other days so i feel that it is rather worthwhile. I might want to go back again on Wed to try their today's special Foie Gras at $14.95.
BE as usual is not very adventurous as he is not a fan of seafood but dont mind fish and chips so he had his not as yummy main course.

Met them at Orchard and have lunch as Aj1sen then do some shopping at taka and wisma before heading to Far East Plaza for some more shopping... As we walk, Ah Di finds that the poster along Orchard MRT looks nice so I got the two of them to take a pic as if they are tourist... As much as Hei finds it ackward doing so, she decided to play along? hehe
After shopping for about 4 hours, we were all tired and went to Cane1e for high tea....
Out of all, I prefer the Salty caramel macaron but still find it a little expensive for its size and i miss those that i had in Switzerland. As for the nougatine crepe, it is not too bad but a little too sweet for my liking. Ah Di likes the tart as the strawberry is v fresh and both Di and Hei likes the ice cream as they are fans of chocolate (not too sweet but rich in taste).
After that, we head down to Vivo for Ah Gu's birthday celebration plus farewell dinner at Seren1ty restaurant as he is going back to NZ to further his studies. Here's what we got for him... a customised party hat to go with the dinner.
We ordered quite a bit of stuffs - mushroom soup, hoi sin tapas, prawn salad, calamari, etc... Out of all, i like their cod fish which is their hot fav as recommended by Di. The birthday boy gets a birthday song sang by the solo singer who is performing at the restaurant, a complimentary cocktail and a present which i think it is so nice of them......
Next, we head to A1tivo as recommended by El but it is closed for renovations so we pop by The Jewel box for a drink before heading home.... Like the place as it has a nice Singap0re night view but it is a little warm to be super romantic.

Was attracted to this place by their colourful window decorations plus i simply love macarons nowadays but the price is a little exp for its size.... We had ham & cheese baked rice and smoked salmon crepe. I will say that the food is not too bad and they are rather generous in the ingredients with the serving just nice to fill our stomach.
We ended our day to another place which brings alittle sadness.... hope she is happy up there....
