[Christmas 2016] Marriott Christmas Party!

It’s not yet Christmas but I’ve already attended a number of Christmas parties. Not that I am complaining of course, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the Christmas season and if I could I’d be immersing myself in all things Christmas. Here are some pictures of the festive Christmas goodies we enjoyed at the party hosted by Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel a few weeks back. Nothing like a ballroom full of crazy and fun loving bloggers to keep the festive cheer up!

Capella Chef’s Table–Festive Afternoon Tea where you can decorate your own Gingerbread Man

[Media Invite]

It’s my favourite time of the year again and I’m happy to report that Baby loves Christmas! We’d taken him to Capella Chef’s Table Festive Family Tea last weekend and he absolutely loved it! He was smiling and making excited noises the minute we stepped into Chef’s Table. I wouldn’t be surprised, I too was wowed by the festive Christmas decorations in the homely and cosy Chef’s Table. A pretty Christmas tree by the side, and Christmassy firs to adorn each table. Btw it was Baby’s first official “engagement”, and he behaved well! Smile Smile

Dear Santa, I wish for many toys this Christmas and a real live Christmas tree!

Kaiserhaus–Enjoy Game meat at Singapore’s only Central European restaurant

Did you know that Kaiserhaus is Singapore’s only restaurant serving classic dishes from Central Europe? If you’ve been to Germany, Austria or Hungary and want to reminisce, you just might want to check out Kaiserhaus. And if you do so by 24 November, you’ll also get the opportunity to sample their Game menu dishes.

The game meat used at Kaiserhaus is sourced from sustainable free-ranging farms in Europe. These farms boast vast expanses of land, allowing the animals to forage on a natural diet, thus improving the quality and flavours of the meat. People who don’t like strong flavours tend to shy away from game meat, thinking game to be reeking of animal smell. Personally, the game dishes I tried at Kaiserhaus are not so exotic tasting that you need to steel yourself in advance. In fact, it is a good thing to have more flavourful meats, why would you want bland tasting food? (Can never understand people who say lamb tastes “lamby”, well don’t eat meat then?!)

Kaiserhaus - Ungarische Entenleber (Linguine in lemon butter sauce with Hungarian duck liver, drizzled with a trifle of cranberry glace) $25

Doesn’t strike me as a game dish, but nevertheless a very good version of duck liver aka foie gras. I seldom come across duck liver served with pasta, but it was a very good idea to pair the 2 together as they complimented each other very well, with the tart and sweet cranberry glace helping to cut through the greasiness.

[Margaret River] Injidup Spa Retreat–Secluded beachfront luxury villas indeed

Aside from Smiths Beach Resort, the other fantastic resort I stayed at during my 6D5N in Margaret River was the lovely and secluded Injidup Spa Retreat. It is so secluded and private that there is no mobile reception here! For a social media addict like me, it was an abhorrent thought (and besides, what if a shark eats me and nobody knows about it?) But the Partner thought it was a fantastic idea! A precious few days to be totally disconnected from everyone else, and to just enjoy the moment! The resort give you a wifi router to connect to the Internet while you’re in your villa, just in case you can’t go cold turkey (thank goodness!).

Injidup Spa resort wows in many ways. Firstly, who can resist a private plunge pool that comes along with the villa? I certainly couldn’t, and being pregnant, it was fantastic to be able to sooth the water retention in my legs by soaking in this pool and doing some light kicks. And it’s a heated pool too so you can use it even in the winter! How romantic is that?

Knots Cafe and Living–An Instagrammer’s delight

Recently, we chanced upon a very pretty cafe in the Paya Lebar area. This spacious outlet is actually a 3-in-1 business retailing furniture, plants and operating a cafe. Everything is for sale at Knots, from the potted plants to the furniture! You can tell instantly that this is an Instagrammer’s haven, with all the pretty plants and furniture serving as backdrops to the cups of coffee and cakes.

The food and drinks are of average quality here, although this could be because we checked this place out just 1 month after its opening. We ordered a waffle, chocolate cake, cafe latte and hot chocolate. Sad to say, the chocolate cake was a little on the dry side, and I think it is quite evident if you look at the pictures too. I had suspected it might be on the dry side and was hoping to be wrong, but there were no other cakes that caught my fancy in the chiller cabinet.
