Birthday Treat In Brio's Cafe Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel, Singapore

From Clark Quay, we wanted to walk to this Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel but somehow, we didn't know which direction to walk to... my legs were quite tired by then... walking almost the whole afternoon is no joke for a 50plus woman!  LOL...
we were at this interception...
looking left and right.. and in the end,
my son called a cab... he pitied his mama here..
he surprised me with an international dinner buffet in this 
Grand Copthorne Waterfront hotel...
called the BRIO's Cafe in Havelock Road..
since we were quite early, we walked to the waterfront..
to take some pictures as usual....
whereby I can rest my weary legs... phew!!
a very nice ambience for a wedding reception...
then at 6.30pm.. the buffet started!!
this is my favourite area...Desserts!!
so many cakes to choose from.. 
don't know which one to start drooling... lol..
but I didn't touch any of these... too common in Malaysia.. hahahaa...
Took a bit from here...
this is my girl's favourite section!
my first helping... 
after that, no more taking pictures..
the Dinner has started!! 
There were so much food and umpteen choices...
You name it, Brio got them!
This is my favourite too..
"Or Nee"
Yam with lots of gingko-s!!
whatever I like, AA also loves.. 
Thank you AA.. 
for giving me such a Sumptuous Birthday Treat!!
I think I gained a good kilogram that night itself...


  1. Happy birthday! Hope I'm in time to wish you!

  2. Wow...the strawberry cake is something to die for.I love buffet, always can eat to my heart's content.

  4. Your birthday? I thought you had your birthday sometime ago? Or was that last year? Well, happy birthday.... Nothing like having a special treat from one's loved one.

    Ya, that's what I hate about Singapore. Every place is too near to take a cab and too far too walk...especially for senior citizens like us...and too troublesome to use the MRT.

  5. Oh...Happy Birthday to you, Claire! That's such a food gosh! You are sure very well pampered. I think you should celebrate more days....haha....more than 50 days! :D

  6. A buffet by the river side. enjoyable aye. :D

  7. The food looks scrumptious. much fresh seafood. Look at the crabs legs. :D

  8. Happy Birthday to you dear! Nothing beats having a sumptuous meal with your dear children eh? You must be so proud of them! :)

  9. Happy Blessed Birthday, Claire. One year older, one year wiser. Wow, VIP treat for you. You are spoilt for choice.

  10. jessie: still early.. hehe.. thanks!

    andrew: see wanna eat a lot but then cannot eat much after a few helpings! hahaha..

    wenn: if go again, i want! :)

    stp: no wonder singaporeans are slimmer than the malaysians!! they walk a lot and we drive a lot!1n hahaha..

    mary: come to think of it, i celebrate every each day! lol..

    tekkaus: not too bad.. first time ma..

    sweetwitch: they are now grown up.. flapping wings already! :))

  13. wah, so "romantic" having the buffet by the river front, hahaha!! should have candle light dinner instead of buffet.. but then that should be reserved for him and his girlfriend later lah, kekekeke!!

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
