One Man Coffee @Upper Thomson

The alphabet chairs!

We have heard so much about this ‘One Man’ that we must come! This is a specialty coffee concept store that that focuses on the art of the espresso and shares the space with Crust Gourmet Pizza Bar. It brews coffee and all-day breakfast until 5pm and hands the store over to Crust Pizza for them to serve up think-crust pizza. How cool is that?

Wild Honey @Mandarin Galleria

Busy Orchard Road outside

Busy Orchard Road outside

Went to run errands in town and found a breakfast place! The queue system was similar to Grub @ Bishan, and hubby was pleasantly surprised that the system knew his name after he keyed in his mobile number to join the queue. Turns out that both Wild Honey and Grub are under the same management!

Bhutan Day 5 – Bumthang

[Here is the photostream of Bhutan 2013 Day 5, for those who prefer pictures to tell a story. 🙂]

Hot oat porridge

Hot oat porridge

Today I had a very hard time crawling out of the very warm bed into the cold room. Hubby managed to set up the fire so I waited for the room to warm up before getting up :p It was too cold to shower!! Breakfast was the hottest we had so far! The lovely pipping hot oat porridge, which remained hot till the last drop, really warmed us up 🙂 There was also egg and toast, pretty standard fare.

Back to our room, we had difficulty getting the fire up again and had used up almost half the match sticks. Finally, while hubby was outside trying to gather more wood, he met one of the staff who helped us get the fire started with a single match stick and a tiny piece of wood. Talk about being experienced huh :p

Bhutan Day 2 – Thimphu

[Here is the photostream of Bhutan 2013 Day 2, for those who prefer pictures to tell a story. 🙂]

Indeed peaceful

Indeed peaceful

Woke up bright and early to have breakfast at 7:00 so that we can some time after breakfast to check out the rest of the hotel. We liked the beautiful flowers that were blooming in the little gardens! Then we realised another advantage of arriving at the beginning of breakfast time – we would definitely get hot food! However, breakfast was only ready around 07:15, so it might be a bit difficult if one was in a rush…

Bhutan Day 1 – Paro to Thimphu

[Here is the photostream of Bhutan 2013 Day 1, for those who prefer pictures to tell a story. 🙂]

Happy couple landing in Paro

Happy couple landing in Paro

It was a very early morning for us! Managed to squeeze in a 4-hour nap before leaving house at 3:45am Singapore time to attempt to catch a cab to Changi Terminal 1. We were quite lucky to spot 2 empty cabs almost immediately! Managed to check in by 4:15… By then, there were already many people who had requested for seats on the left side of the plane (so that we can see the Himalayan mountain ranges from the plane)! Looks like everyone got the same advice from their tour agencies, or maybe we are all using the same agency, DrukAsia, the only Bhutanese agency that has a branch in Singapore currently 🙂 We had initially tried to get an upgrade to business class, unfortunately there was only 1 seat available. However, the staff was very kind to offer us an alternative – the economy seats with extra leg space (1 row behind business class) on the left side of the plane, and hubby got me the window seat!!! Woohoo!! I haven’t had a window seat for the last 4.5 years :p Thank you hubby!!!

Ambush @Junction 8

Kenna ambushed!

Kenna ambushed!

Off days meant waking up late and lazing around, and going for a good lunch!

Went to Junction 8 for lunch on this beautiful off day, and Ambush has seats so here I am. This is a Fast Casual European Dining outlet (as stated on its website) and we came here a few times before, always wanting to try its pork knuckles but always sold out. 😦

The ambience is casual and they serve very decent European food which includes pastas, paellas, sausages, poultry and seafood! What’s interesting is that their menu is formatted like a newspaper so reading the menu feels like reading a newspaper!

Barossa @Holland Village

We were hunting for food at Holland Village when we spotted One-for-One Australian Beef Buffet (usual price $43.90++) that was available every Wednesday and Saturday. We had to show the waitress that we had “Liked” their Facebook page before we could start the dinner. There was a time limit of 90 min, but we only had 60 min, since the buffet ends at 10pm… yeah, it was a super late dinner for us!

We liked that there was live music indoors, but that meant that we had to sit outdoors because it was too noisy indoors. Luckily, it was quite a cooling night, so it was pretty relaxing to chill outdoors with live music in the background, and we could still engage in a decent conversation.

Peperoni Pizzeria @Greenwood Ave

Rustic feel

Rustic feel

A wonderful Saturday and we woke up early to challenge (yet again) ourselves to Bukit Timah hill, and of course the wonderful Liu Sha Bao after that! But the highlight of the day was definitely not only the baos, but the yummy Italian food that came after the baos!

We made our way to the nearest bus stop to Greenwood Ave (one of the outlets), and low and behold, it started to rain!! And very very heavily at that! Between the few of us (and the few umbrellas we shared), we were totally drenched by the time we walked in to the rustic-feeling place…

Table Manners @Changi City Point

Perfect place for dinner

Perfect place for dinner

Happened to attend a conference at Expo today, so we planned to drop by Changi City Point to check it out.

Decided to try out this place coz hubby read that the burger is good! It was pretty crowded at 7+pm on a Friday, so reservations may be a good idea.

The restaurant is divided into a small indoor area and a bigger alfresco dining area. The tables are lined up into one long curved stretch rather than individually island-ed,  and diners sit on both sides of the long table, very much like in a canteen. This gives the diners a very communal friendly ambience and everyone feels like we could be friends instantly!

Miao Yi Vegetarian Restaurant 妙益素食楼 @Coronation Plaza

We decided to go healthy today and came to Miao Yi Vegetarian Restaurant.. wow, haven’t been here since JC days and it’s still going on strong!

Claypot Tofu with Assortment

Claypot Tofu with Assortment

Claypot Tofu with Assortment ($10): The tofu was very smooth! But the fried skin tasted a tad sour-ish. The gravy had a hint of herbal taste, quite delicious! Assortment refers to the peas, mushrooms, yam bits, carrots and wong bok. Continue reading
