Do stay tuned for the upcoming make up tutorials and shares on where to get high quality ones yet maintaining its affordability!!! 

Also, I will be sharing on tips when choosing eyeshadows! 🙂

Here’s some sneak peaks for you! 😀

We were invited back by The Prime Society last Friday for our complimentaries which the staff had forgotten to present us with when we had our first dining experience with them on our previous visit. As you recall in my previous post, I wasn’t very satisfied with their food and service quality but after notifying them that they had forgotten to deliver what they promised, their customer service was excellent! However, I have to say this. Arrangements were made via email correspondences all this while with one of their staff by the name of ‘Jiun’. Initially, she was alright but when my mobile had a little technical glitch (Singtel sucks!) and she as well as the manager of TPS couldn’t get me a few times during office hours, Jiun got a little fed up and her attitude and response wasn’t very pleasing. I was unaware that my mobile was unreachable because it was switched on and there were still signals going on. I realised that there might be some problems only when my whatsapp couldn’t connect for a long time (didn’t think much when it had connection problems as the reception at my office building kinda sucks). Oh wells. 

Anyway, Eardley, the manager of TPS, was extremely nice and friendly. He was also very approachable. 

Do note that TPS has recently changed their whole menu and we were told by Eardley that they changed it a few days later after our visit. 

There were no longer any burgers with fries, a proper main course meal with sides. Rather, there were other special varieties of food. Eardley was very kind to recommend us some of the commendable entrees for starters. We ordered Entrees, a Main course meal and desserts. Champagne was also provided as compl

We were served bread twice and I wasn’t really fancying them because they fill up your tummy real fast! But nonetheless, bf and I liked the truffle butter! Tasty! 🙂

Our complimentary champagne! 🙂

Beef Tatami – really really nice! I think it’s smoked beef kinda taste. Initially, I’d thought the jelly cubes were nata de coco and bf thought was aloe vera, but no, they tasted like those usual jelly – something like ayu jellies. 
Picture

This tasted quite good as well and kinda reminds of me those Chinese dumplings. The mushrooms tasted alright too 🙂
Picture

It’s filled with yummy succulent and juicy strips of beef! Really awesome! 🙂
Picture

We had some shells as well but the clams were so tiny and erm, sandy… 
Picture

This dish was the first that caught my eye when I saw the menu which we ordered as our main course. It’s actually ‘lau shu fen’ (rat tail-like shape) and I was quite taken aback since it’s a Chinese local delight where you can find in food courts and coffee shops. It comes with a cod fish and the soup tasted just like the miso soup from Japanese restaurant.
Picture

Now, the desserts were a quite disappointing. We could have settled for something better like Ben and Jerry’s which was nearby TPS. The varieties of desserts were quite limited and none of them actually suit my preference. Bf ordered this chocolate with popcorn (?!) and those green stuffs are actually disgusting herbal mint paste and those eye-like seeds are from the dragon fruits I guess…The chocolate tasted quite alright and ONLY THE CHOCOLATE.

Some Chestnut ice cream, with citrus fruits and cinnamon donut-like bread. I must first comment that the fruits were extremely sour!!! And yes, the sour levels do go accordingly to the colour of the fruits! The pale green was extremely sour and even as I’m noting this down, I’m actually salivating? Not because it’s delicious but the sourness is just oh so power-packed!The ice cream didn’t carry much of the chestnut flabour and the donut-like was filled with cinnamon! And I HATE CINNAMON! But I forced myself to gooble 1 down anyway since I was already halfway at it. But I must rave on the softness of the bread. Really really soft! But the cinnamon had to spoil it all… 🙁

Also, the desserts took a little longer than the others to be served. I guess it must be due to the crowd which started flowing in at around 9?

Overall, it was a memorable dining experience with TPS and was so much better than the previous visit.

I might just give it another shot if given the chance 🙂

HAPPY TGIF AND NOTD ! 🙂

Had an early birthday celebration dinner for my sister last Sunday at Nosh Restaurant located at 9 Rochester Park. The first impression of Rochester Park reminds me of a mini Dempsey Hill, though it’s situated away from the City. It’s located at Buona Vista. Bf and I took a cab there while it was pouring and I was holding on to the birthday cake, or rather, bf was 🙂When we alighted, the restaurant had different areas. We had to climb up the wet stair case and dined on the 2nd level. Not very impressive to me. It was dark at night with candle-lights around which seems an interesting place for romance. But other than that, most of the times, I couldn’t make out what I was eating. 

A little background info on Nosh. It serves Western Modern European cuisine which is open for brunches, lunches, dinners and even suppers! It’s actually located near Ministry of Education and Buona Vista MRT, but I do not suggest for you to walk over because it’s just not walkable-friendly. It is relatively a newly established restaurant that offers great relaxing ambience. You may choose to dine during the afternoons or evenings, but I woudn’t patronise them again at night since it’s rather dark. Did a little research on this restaurant and managed to find another blog review on it. As you can see, pictures taken during the day seemed so much better. We didn’t manage to walk around because it was rather dark and there was work the next day 🙁

Anyway, pictures for your visual pleasure 🙂

Veal Risotto. Nearly ordered this for myself but am glad I didn’t. Bf fed me some portion of the risotto and I nearly died! Don’t try it if you’re not an adventurous foodie because it’s filled with some weird herb-ie taste!

The varieties of food choices were not to my liking so I had settled for the good old creamy pasta! The large pieces of cheese were great but the chicken had some fats attached to it and being weight-conscious, I usually remove skins and fats of any meat I consume.

When it comes to food, I am really one boring fart. I can eat almost the same food everyday and drink only certain drinks. Ask my family, friends and colleagues and they will tell you. I’m a simple person who doesn’t ask for much when it comes to food. I’m not really the adventurous sort who would try out exotic food that are out of my comfort zone. So, overall I thought the chicken pasta I had was quite alright, although creamy pasta makes you sick of it after awhile. I fancied the bacon too.

Other than that, the staff didn’t impress me much and the time taken to serve the food was quite long, although there wasn’t much crowd. 

Thus, if I decide to patronise them again, I would definitely go in the day/evening and request to be seated inside. It looks really comfy based on this blogger’s pictures 🙂
