Waterholes Creek - 2010 Pink Moscato

ABBEY:  We're looking for sweet wine and we saw this wine house at Nex. Upon entering the shop we asked if they have sweet wine. Lo and behold, they have it for 18sgd. It was recommended also by the attendant and according to her they were sold like hotcakes. It's the sweetest from all the spirits that I tasted.

WILL: As i said before, i am used to fridge with red or white wine in it. Me and parents sipped a shot once in a while after dinner. Here, whenever I see some discounted price of wines, I see to it to avail even a bottle. 
     Once we were at NEX, i saw at wine company that they are on sale. We got this waterholes pink moscato for 18$. 
      The taste? A little bit sweet. Very nice, after drinking a glass or two, i always had good night sleep. Try this. You'll love it, recommendable for first time wine drinkers.

Old Town Cafe

ABBEY: I told Wilma if we can have coffee at Old town cafe in Suntec and she said yes. Unfortunately we didn't have a chance to go. 

We had a scheduled dinner at the Big Splash but we were an hour early at the time. We looked around the place and found this cafe. This is our time. We got a basket of fries, white coffee and my fave teh-c all for 8sgd. As their cafe name boasts you will got a feeling like you were living in the old times as the ambiance is dimly-lighted and the aroma of roasted coffee fills the place.

WILL:  We arrived early than our booked time. Almost an hour earlier for dinner to 1-twenty six. So we decided to have some coffee first. We saw the ever wanted Old Town Coffee shop located at the Big Splash-East Coast Park. 
       I am a lady that is always adding up vanilla in my coffee buy their White coffee has its perfect blend. No need of anything. We also ordered a fries. And who will not love their french fries, it is not hollow and crispy. 
       This is really must try not only by the locals but also by the tourist.

Doritos Spicy Nachos

ABBEY: Its package is colored hot red but the nacho is not that spicy and I like it :) As I munch the chips I can smell the aroma of chili but tasted a strong cheesy flavor. One pack is 3.95sgd at any supermarket. I think it is best match with an ice-cold soda.

WILL: Are u tired of the same cheese flavored Doritos? Why not try this bright orange nachos? Spicy version of the said chips. Even Abbey don't need to worry, the spiciness is bearable ;) worth to try.

The Cathay

ABBEY: The mall is located near SOTA (School of the Arts) and Dhoby Ghaut MRT station. It includes cafe, fast food chains, restaurants, boutique and a cineplex. We came here to watch a couple of movies including the two premiere nights for Real Steel & What's your number. The cinema is clean and has good arrangement of seats. Cinema bar offers our fave nachos, popcorn and drinks.

Thank you Cathay! This theater is very memorable for us. Here, we both see the movie Avatar and it was our first time to watch in big screen here in Singapore. Another first time? when we watched here the Real Steel, attended a gala premiere ;) 

      Their place is very clean, the sounds is superb, and what I love the most with them? Their chair. Every chair can be turned out to couples'. ;) Love Love Love. Thanks Cathay ;)

Coffee and Toast

ABBEY: As the other cafes our full we went for Coffee and Toast to have hot drinks after dinner. Since Chat hasn't tasted the kaya toast with soft-boiled eggs yet, we ordered a pair of them. I got my teh-c, tea with creamer and it tasted good. One cup is 1.30sgd and toast is at 1.1sgd. We also went here to have breakfast after our night shift.

WILL: We had our dinner at The Gallerie and went here for some coffee. This is located at Esplanade MRT Circle Line just before you go to Suntec Convention or Marina Square. 
      And as per Chat, this is her first time to eat kaya toast. Imagine, for almost 4 years staying here, she doesn't even bother to taste my fave food of Singapore. 
      The kaya toast is nice, as usual taste. The coffee, as always, i am delighted by its taste. 3 coffees and 2 kaya toast order costs not more than 10$. Save up!

Cloud 9

ABBEY: This gave me a reminiscing of my childhood when my gums swelled for overeating Cloud9. I have tooth problem back then but I kept on munching the sweet. Its made of chewy chocolate, caramel, nougat and nuts.

WILL: Cloud9. Haha! Who will not know this? Every Filipino must! Ito ang kumakalaban nuon pa sa chocnut. They have a very big difference, the chocnut just have milk, cocoa and pulverized nuts... This one have vanilla filling, caramel, chunk of nuts and chocolates. 
Cloud nine now i think costs not more than 3Php each. Anyways, to wrap up, i love also this chocolate.

Domino's Pizza Cheese Burst

ABBEY: I'm looking for a surprise to Wilma. I kept thinking what she wants. Then the pizza idea came out. As soon as my shift ends, I hurried to Domino's. And I was so happy when I checked their menu. They have this cheese burst promotion wherein a layer of cheese is sandwich between pizza doughs giving the pizza more flavor. It can be ordered to almost type of pizza they have. I got their four-cheese at less than 20sgd. When I got home, as usual, she was surprise. I told her how her pizza was made and she was glad because its her favorite.

WILL: Its only 4pm but I am worn out. I am very tired. It was long day. I cleaned our room. But that was compensated when Abbey surprise me this domino's pizza. At first I thought it is my favorite chicken flavor, but I am wrong, this is the new flavor of domino's. Damn! The cheese is really bursting the yumminess in my mouth. 
      Domino's never ever do a non-sense taste pizza ;) keep up the good work

Sengkang LRT Line

ABBEY: I used to ride this line in my first year at Singapore. We used to stay at Fernvale. Its is divided into two;east and west Sengkang. Be sure to know which color of the train will be arriving before hopping in else you will have to go back to Sengkang interchange and ride the correct one; just like what happened to me :)

WILL: Well, this is the first LRT line I had ridden when I went back here in Singapore, Sengkang LRT. Here at Sengkang was the first house were Abbey stayed. 
This is quite confusing for me until now. That we live in other place, we sometimes ride this line for checkups and when we go to the Sengkang sports complex for some swim.

Poached Salmon

  • Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 chicken cube 
  • 2 fillets salmon
  • 1 tablespoon rosemary
    • ground black pepper to taste

    • Bring water and lemon juice to a boil in medium-sized skillet. Stir in chicken cube Reduce heat to a simmer and place salmon fillets in pan. Season with pepper and sprinkle with parsley. Remove salmon from pan after 10 minuets each side. Keep salmon warm.

    • Boil remaining liquid in the skillet until it is reduced to approximately 1/4 cup. 

ABBEY: She said we'll have salmon as supper. We went to the grocery and bought salmon and lemon along with our supplies. All the while, I thought she will just fry the fish and zest it with lemon. This time it's different. The salmon was simmered to a mixture of chicken broth, rosemary, and lemon. A burst of salty and sour taste will fill your mouth for every bite and it's great.

1 Twenty-Six

ABBEY: DiningCity got a promo for a list of restaurants. Prices per set meal dropped low. When the reservation period began, all diners became fully booked. We got our reservation at 1 Twenty-Six. It's located at Big Splash near East Coast park. Taxi fare rated at 20sgd. Upon arrival, we were welcomed by their friendly staff and guided us to a 2-seater table at the corner of a balcony-like place. We got pumpkin soup and drunkren prawn for appetizer. Braised pork and pan-seared tuna as main coure. For dessert Warm apple and date filo strudel with vanilla Anglaise. All for 82sgd including service charge. It was romantic and relaxing as bossanova music played and with the help of the beautiful forest-like ambiance. Transportation thru bus is also available if you are willing to walk more than half a kilometer to the bus stop.

WILL: First of all, I wanna thank the DiningCity for this wonderful promotion. We booked for a dinner of 3-set meal at 1 Twenty-Six for $38. This is located at East Coast Park, you can hail a cab for no-fuzz travel. 
      We arrived early and there is no reason hurry up the food. We ordered each of the food in the menu and on that everything will be tasted and judged. 
      Pumpkin soup. It satisfy my longing of the pumpkin soup I had back way to the Philippines. Creaminess and taste of that met my expectation and cravings. Abbey had the shrimp for his appetizer. 
      I had this fish and abbey had a pork.i do not my order, the tuna seems do not fit with an sauces around it. Not my type. Abbey's main entree is superb, the thickness and each sauces is in a such harmonious taste specially with the cheese one. 
      I had the cheesecake and raspberry ice cream. The creaminess and taste of cheesecake just go along very well with the ice cream's sweetness and coldness. Love the feeling. On the other hand, Abbey's dessert is just a simple tasted bread. Nothing special. 
     1 Twenty-Six have a good place to do a sightseeing while having a romantic dinner. They also have a live band to soften the breeze from the ocean. Love the ambiance

The Noodee Box

ABBEY: Wilma ordered this at The Gallerrie foodcourt. Basically, this is a noddle in a box. Dry noodles seasoned with oil, soy sauce and other toppings. It comes with a drink. She told me that the drink was made of different leaves mix together in a blender. She insisted that I should try it. Knowing what the drink is made of makes me think that it has an awful taste. I was wrong, it is sweet. The smell is also good. Nice to try that meal.

WILL: Whether dine-in or take-away, The Noodee Box serves their food with this American style box. So fab! This is located at Marina Square's The Gallerie
      Its noodles is awesome. Thickness and its texture is so good that was combined with distinctive flavor of its sauce. I ordered a set, so I got this Green Drink, soup, and crispy salmon skin. 
      That Green Drink is lovely, I love the taste, I feel so full after sipping it and feel so detoxified. I will definitely come back here!
