Must Drink Friday August 2012

It was another round of free flow drinks by Hot FM 91.3's Must Drink Friday held at Lucky 13. All thanks to the invitation from GF, who had once again won the exclusive invites. Lucky girl. Thank you.


Upon registration at the door, the ladies were given a Clinique goodie bag. It consists of three HOT FM 91.3 car decal, a Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion (for very dry to dry combination), a Clinique Liquid Facial Soap Mild (for dry combination), a Clinique Clarifying Lotion (for dry combination), a Clinique Moisture Surge (for all skin types) and a flyer to redeem a travel size mascara when presented at a Clinique counter.


Lucky 13,  a Miami styled diner/bar/club, is a relatively small place, as compared to the other venues the previous MDFs were held in. As we arrived pretty late, the place was already packed with listeners and guests. We settled ourselves at the bar, that was already very crowded, and treated ourselves to the free flow beer, whisky and vodka. C…

Singapore Chinese Opera Museum - Bian’s Cafe

Today's lunch was at Bian's Cafe at Sultan Plaza. On serveral previous occasions, we wanted to get our lunch at the Bian's Cafe located on the Kandahar Street, but it was closed. Instead, we saw the cafe in Sultan Plaza and my guess was that they had moved.

The place was nicely decorated with chinese opera related photos, decorations and props. It was a cosy little place. We were seated and wanted to look at their menu, but the only menu they had was the one on the wall, over at their counter. So we had to leave our seats and return to the entrance to order.

The food were not fantastic. Normal or some below average. We also ordered drinks. Colleague says the Latte is the best among all the stuff we had ordered. The food came very slowly as there was only one cook and many orders. I could see other tables who were seated much later than us already had their food served while our table was only half served. Seems like they are unable to handle well during busy period.

Java Detour

Due to the disappointing chicken cordon bleu sandwich from last friday, I met up with gf to satisfy my appetite with a delicious Chicken Cordon Bleu and Egg Salad.

The egg salad was a little tasteless. Not really recommended. The chicken sandwich is definitely my favourite.

The service standard was the same as the previous visit. Slow. They like to prepare an item at a time then call out when done. We had to walk at least three trips to the counter to collect our food. Two fruitless trips: once, we heard the wrong item and next, they made the wrong order. But they were friendly. We did not manage to order any cakes as our little tummies are already full from the egg salad and sandwich.

Soup Restaurant

It was a family dinner affair at The Soup Restaurant after watching the movie, "The Expendables 2". As usual, the food taste fantastic. The only downside is the peanut snack. It's chilli crisps with peanuts, does not taste nice and too spicy for us. The entire plate was almost untouched. We still prefer the previous, plain crispy peanuts.

Hatched at Holland Village

Saturday evening's dinner was at Hatched in Holland Village with my girlfriends. Most were first timers. And I really like the decorations in there. Very cute. Eggs!

CF and I were there first and gotten ourselves a table while we waited for the others to reach. I guess we were quite early as there were still quite a number of empty tables. It was only after about 7pm, the place was packed. There was a second level too, saw the stairs and someone was being ushered up when I went to the toilet. The toilet stinks by the way.

There were quite a number of service crew members, but it was a reasonable number after knowing that there is another level of Hatched customers to serve. The overall service was good.

‘HWZ PlayTest: A Shot of Goodness with Samsung NX1000’ Workshop

Signed up for the ‘HWZ PlayTest: A Shot of Goodness with Samsung NX1000’ Workshop! by Samsung and HWZ with Lynn through the Herworld's EDM. We signed up at the same time, but only I received the invite. I was quite disappointed as I was to go alone and due to last night's late night, I could not really get up early and was about 5 minutes late into the event.

The event was held at Zero Zero, #04-86 at Central. The event had already started and it lasted about 2 hours, from 1.30pm to 3.30pm. Each of us were given a slice of coffee chocolate cake and a cup of orange juice. There were 3 speakers in total. Two from HWZ and the last was a lecturer from Ngee Ann Polytechnic. Powerpoint slides printout was also provided by the last speaker. He also had quizzes and the clever and fast participants received prizes like spa vouchers.


The workshop consists of topics covering Mirrorless Cameras, in consumer's point of view, the technical aspects of mirrorless cameras, and the last par…

The Handburger

The Handburger was the final decision for our dinner place on a Friday night. We waited quite a while for our seats. I have no idea they are busy or full. I saw a few empty tables. But we still had to wait.

The guy who took our order was extremely blur. Ah. But he's a trainee and he was very hardworking, filling up our cups with water. So, no harm done.
