Had been rather busy the past weekend. Busy with friends, movies and food! Loving it~
Friday, after work, I met up with Char and Kevin at Bugis, we were going for steamboat! We walked around, comparing prices, and ended up at 'Tian Tian Huo Guo' @ Liang Seah St. They also had BBQ, as Char preferred BBQ~ But we felt kinda cheated...when we were walking pass them, they told us it was $16 net per pax. We felt the price was OK, but when we sat down, we were told that it was $18 per pax if we wanted the BBQ too. But every table had a BBQ stove, which lead to us thinking that there was no difference which kind we wanted. Hais, but it's OK...
Their crabs and prawns were pretty fresh, so I had quite a lot of that. The rest were so-so...
Mr Toh joined us later, and attacked the meat. But he feedback that the marinated meat wasn't nice. Most likely, we won't go back to this store again~
As Mr Toh were finishing up, Doreen & Christina came to meet us. We decided to go to Paulaner
! I love their live band! Really good and really funny too~ Lots of Lady Gaga requests too, lol.
Mr Toh wasn't feeling satisfied after the steamboat, and he was really tempted by the pizza, so he ordered a classic pizza with bacon and onions. Their pizzas had really thin crusts, which is Mr Toh's favourite!
Char and Kevin left around 11.40pm, while the rest of us stayed behind till the band's last set, and we shared a cab home.
On Saturday afternoon, I had a date with 2 hot hunks! Namely, Mr Tony Stark and Mr Ip Man. Haahha! The 2 hottest movie hunks this week~
In Iron Man 2, the world is aware that billionaire inventor Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) is the armored Super Hero Iron Man. Under pressure from the government, the press and the public to share his technology with the military, Tony is unwilling to divulge the secrets behind the Iron Man armor because he fears the information will slip into the wrong hands. With Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow), and James Rhodey Rhodes (Don Cheadle) at his side, Tony forges new alliances and confronts powerful new forces. [Source]
We met Sis, Kelvin (Sis's cousin) & Andrew (Sis's friend) @ Lido to catch Iron Man 2!! The long awaited release! But...it was so-so. Quite funny and exciting, but it felt rather flat, somehow.
We then walked over to Cathay Cineleisure for our 2nd date! Ip Man 2! We had some time before the movie started, so we chillax-ed @ Old Town White Coffee where Kelvin's friend joined us~ I love their coffee! So aromatic~
Ip Man arrives in Hong Kong and tries to propagate Wing Chun in the region. He faces rivalry from the local master of Hung Ga, Hung Jan Nam. After a few encounters with each other, Hung begins to respect Ip's existence. One day Hung is beaten to death by an English boxer during a duel. In order to protect the dignity of Chinese martial arts, Ip challenges him. [Source]
Ip Man 2 was nice!! But somehow, I still felt the 1st movie was better. =X Anyway, Donnie Yen's still very hot. =P
After the movie, we walked over to 313 @ Somerset for dinner~ Andrew recommended this place, Brotzeit
, a German Beer Bar & Restaurant. The sausages and pork knuckles were delish!! But the portions were...how do I put it....not that big lah. No pictures of the yummy food, it's all in Kelvin's camera~ See when he'll upload it~
Sunday, we slept till afternoon, and went to White Sands to meet YX and Andrew (Mr Toh's friend) for coffee~ I was starving, so I had the lobster linguine! It was good lah! Darn yummy!
Had a sudden craving for pizza yesterday~ So we indulged in Rite Pizza's Mayo Chix pizza! They had a promotion going on, you get a free side order on Mon and Tues! I didn't know that at first.
What's funny was that, the person actually bothered to call me back after I had placed my order, to tell me about this promotion. So nice....I decided to try their garlic bread & it was goood!
1/4 eaten pizza. =P
Last Monday (26/04), Mr Toh came to fetch me from work. *loves* Been a while since he's had the time for that. *bliss* We went for our favourite 'xiao long baos'! While waiting for the 'xiao long baos', we ordered the Hot & Sour Noodles. I....didn't like it at all. The taste of the salted vegetable was VERY strong.
'Xiao long baos'!!! <3<3~~
Dessert! Piping hot, crispy on the outside, creamy on the inside Red Bean Pancake! <3<3<3~~
I REALLY love this!
The previous Friday (16/04), we met Sis @ Boat Quay to celebrate Kelvin's birthday~ Very nice of him to invite us. xD
Lots of liquors. O.O
The girls~ (Me, Sis and her cousin)
Mr Toh with the Martell 'dua pao' (cannon). Not everyday you'll get to take a picture with this! Lol!
Mr Toh and Me~ <3
All pictures above were taken with the Blackberry Bold 9700
. Company changed it for us. I think it looks really sleek and stylo. =P Better camera too. Mr Toh hates the camera's flash though, he finds it very annoying, because it only shines when we press the 'shoot' button.
Other than that, everything's pretty fine.
