Club Street Social

 Goats Cheese, Honey, Thyme crostini - yummy morsels !!
 All day breakfast - truffled egg toast
 Pan seared Lobster, Yuzu, avocado Panini
Nutella Bread pudding

Crazy crash in or with scc mand returning and an actively bleeding hepat , I ended being the porter of the day, with m and m summaries late into the evening with short salvaging her exploding hern. With tapas options like salt and esquina we ended up heading to club street and ignoring her jap booking simply cos I felt like homely hearty casual bar food and her turning back on la cicada. We landed up finally in Club Street Social (Gemhill Lane) I'm glad we did cos I've found a new favourite appetiser in crostinis - very yummy morsels of crisp toast and the amazing flavours of sweet honey and pungent goats cheese. Truffled toast was rather blahh, much prefer the one at Over easy. And the lobster panini that I specially came here for..had just too little lobster !! Donated all my avocados to short. Nutella Bread pudding was much of a hyperglycemic parade. Love this hole in the wall gem we found.

Night before was beer fest and trouse brothers, so got off to a late start on sunday morning, sorry girls yq had to cancel Pilates and j on her friend and me on cello !tried the Taiwanese lychee beer and the yummy sothesby cider that came with the admission. Thank goodness the stand up comedy was not much of a flop. We noticed while e whites loved racism and sex jokes e Singaporeans love their digs on politics and our infamous laws.

 Anyhow we landed in hillcrest again cos I wanted to try baker and cook but when we reached there they said they were not doing dine in that day! Ugh really tough luck with that area. Plus pepperonis was full house so we ended up by default at Othello, cos. tried bronte before. Good for me cos I was craving eggs. I always crave eggs, makes me feel like I'm actually having a weekend when I tuck into my poached eggs. It was a happy occasion cos jas was announcing her proposal, and how logistics wise it can be quite a painful affair, when you come to talk about the practicalities of a wedding. Anyhow, its a happy busy that I'm sure she doesn't mind ;) Had my eggs benedict with mushrooms which is a first for me. Somehow I miss my eggs being drowned in the creamy hollandaise. This was also on a normal toasted bread instead of a muffin. Jas had a cordon bleau while Qian had a vegetarian pasta. Othello is great for having lotsa space and sunshine and basically nice to hang out at on a Sunday afternoon.

After the brunch I headed to family day at universal studios with the family and by George, I was so happy to have my turkey leg!! Don't find it here, last I had it was in Disney land, prob with kels. Mummy was stunning (to my nervous system) and transformers was nauseating. Think I'm at an awkward Age when I'm too old for shrek and Madagascar but I'm too hum ji for battle star galatica :(

Sapphire, Jewel Box

Mother's Day was a post night of showers (it was an almost with sied van dyl ;( ), and hence a cooling misty morning when I companied gran to church, and thereafter a vegeterian lunch before we headed out to Jewel box at Mount Faber. Originially intended for Hort Park (after Southern Ridges passerbying), but missing the turn landed us in Mount Faber. Even then I had to circle around and ascend it twice (thanks for changing the shock absorbers, dad) before we reached the coach carpark (cos I refused to valet for 5 heh) and climbed up.

Awesome possum view from the alfresco area, the architecture was equally amazing. The alfresco area seemed sprawling, and from where we perched ourselves, we had a elevated view of Sentosa and beyond. There was also an indoor glass box. They only served the buffet (and special Mothers day buffet brunch) but they made it special for us allowing us to have coffee there. Just as well cos there was space. Its a good place to go with good view sans the crowd..thanks for the lovely carnations (for gran!)

Headed to cello, then home to pick up the bikes (trio but all taken) and then from Macs to start of Changi Beach, before the lagoon put us off to dine instead at our River Valley zi char. Second time after till midnight (while the Man city vs QPR was going on), to Flyer/Kallang where an absolute of a gem of peaceful still waters lie. Love the reflection of the under-bridge, the smooth pavement of the F1 pits, the connector that leads to nowhere( at least, until the gps works). Dislike the smoggg, the endless traffic lights, the turning vs straight lanes, and gotta ditch the pedestrian mentality to battle the roads.
