Dates for the weekend

Hello! 🙂

So, today’s post is on what I did for the previous weekend!

So, on Friday, WC and I decided to eat Kiseki Jap buffet! He even picked me from my workplace, so that we could rush in time for the walk-in queue that starts at 6pm, as reservations were fully booked for that day. 😦

While queueing for Kiseki. This was when we were still in a good mood to even take pictures while queuing. -.-

We queued for approx. 1 hour before we decided to give up, cause we were too hungry and WC saw this awesome Chinese restaurant that had buffet too, so we proceeded to there!

Self-service appetisers that are also included in the buffet.

Love the peanuts and beancurd skin! 🙂

KdK8ws1384860446

Crispy fried gyoza that has huge pork, shrimps and chives inside! 🙂

Soup with wanton! Too much MSG in this soup as it tasted too salty! 😦

BEST DISH EVER: FRIED FISH FILLET WITH PEPPER! 🙂

VVV fresh! 🙂

A small pathetic portion of the chilli prawns with fried bun!

Marked with a tick for this dish, and indeed they gave us ONE PIECE only.

The table beside us faced the same problem too! :O

But the sauce was GOOD! It tasted like chilli crabs sauce!

Special Pork Ribs, that tasted tender and sweet!

hSxf601384861796

Spinach Beancurd. MUST-ORDER, with its tender and soft beancurd!

cvbia41384870274

Xiao Long Bao that tasted pretty alright, but not as memorable as Ding Tai Fung’s one!

Fried to perfection, but the skin was too greasy!

Other than these,  there were more food such as the rice (that tasted mediocre) and seafood soup (which tasted not bad, due to its generous serving of the prawns), and mango sago dessert (more pomelo than mango)  that we ordered, but didn’t take the pictures as we were too hungry!

Although there were some hits and misses from this buffet, we paid 26 bucks for each person, including GST and service charge, which makes it cheaper than other weekend dinner buffet restaurants. 🙂

 Additionally, the service pretty much made up for its food, where staff were so polite and prompt! 🙂

Walked around Orchard Central, and

YqupgD1384871863

Two more books to the John Green collection! 🙂

After that, we picked Melon up from his workplace, and watch Captain Philips!

It was kinda draggy at parts, but I still found it ok. Apparently, its 5 stars (??!!).

 Have your realised recently there are so many movies tackling the theme of loss and isolation, which is highly recommended to watch? Such as Prisoners, Gravity and now Captain Philips!

But I have watched two of these three, and find that its depressing/ draggy at some parts, so I won’t really give it 5 stars for the storyline!

A pink Saturday to enjoy while accompanying WC for his upcoming test! 🙂

I love reading people’s biographies, as it tells you how hard the person managed or suffered to get to who he/she is right now. 🙂

& finally trying these infamous cupcakes (matcha azuki bean, earl grey pear and salted caramel)!

Fluff bakery

12 Jalan Pisang.
Open from Wednesdays to Sundays, 12pm till all bakes sell out.

Still unable to try their red velvet nutella though! 😦

Although this cupcake is a little costly ($4 per piece), its really moist and has hidden treasures (fillings I mean), in the cupcake itself that makes it more special! 🙂 CRAVING FOR IT RIGHT NOW! :O

I WILL BE BACK FOR THE RED VELVET!

Super happy that I still managed to buy two of the matcha! It sold out after 10 minutes I got mine! :O

La Marelle café is a café which has so many things to look at that are all picture-worthy.
I know I will be back again, as it just gives me a different thing to focus on, each time I’m there!
After that, we walked around Haji Lane, and headed to another café for desserts!

The Brunch Menu, which is only available on Sundays!
Didn’t try any of it, cause we are just here for desserts! But I will wanna head back to try their brunch, as it looks good from tables around us!

The red velvet and rainbow cake looks humongous!
Like really HUGE HUGE!
62FZnL1385275170
But our main aim was this:
Rainbow crepe cake, that costed us $8.90.
Rainbow cake was famous, then Mille crepe cake!
And now I am.. café has gone a step further to make this a dream come true! 🙂
Layers of vanilla cream and chocolate cream alternating between the different layers, this cake doesn’t taste too sweet at all! 😀
I will gladly head back for this cake, and the brunch! 😀
So that’s two café to look out for in the sunny Singapore, which are really worthy of exploration!
Thanks for reading! 😀
