Fullerton Hotel Festive Afternoon Tea

It’s less than 1 week to Christmas! How’s your preparations for Christmas, are you in a festive mood yet with all the malls and streets decked in Christmas baubles? Last week, the Partner and I went to check out Fullerton Hotel’s Festive Afternoon tea and boy was the hotel ready for Christmas or what.

Christmas at Fullerton

A huge Christmas tree and sleight spilling with presents and teddy bears had been placed right at the entrance. And every conceivable pillar had been plastered with red and green hued plants and Christmas Lights. A bubble machine was blowing bubbles from the second floor so it kinda felt like stepping into a winter wonderland with falling bubbles pretending to be snowflakes.

5 places to help you throw your dream Christmas party

It’s the time of the year again, where we prepare for that one all important day, the 25th of December. I love this period where all the festive decorations are up, and Christmas songs are blasting in every mall and supermarket. Because you know, 1 day to celebrate Christmas is just too short! This year, Christmas falls on a Friday which is great because it means an extended Christmas celebration!

How will you be celebrating Christmas? If you’re planning to throw your own Christmas party, I say go for it! It’s more economical, you get to have more food and you can escape the traffic jams of Orchard Road. Actually it’s not too difficult these days to quickly put together a home party. There are so many places where you can pre-order your Christmas turkeys, Christmas platters and other festive goodies. Some have even come up with new twists to traditional favourites in a bid to help you wow your guests. Here are 5 places you should check out for your Christmas goodies.

Affordable lunch sets at The Ship Restaurant

Ever since the reopening of The Ship Restaurant & Bar at Shaw Centre, I have gone back not less than 3 times for lunch there. Years ago, before my blogging days, the Partner and I would frequent The Ship for dinner after work just because we loved the old school atmosphere there, and the food was pretty affordable. We’d be sure to get a nice booth table too as there were plenty to spare. We’d always order steaks.

So I was glad when The Ship finally reopened after Shaw Centre’s renovation. Even though they opened a second outlet at NEX, it didn’t strike me to go there (Serangoon not being too convenient for us either) as there wasn’t the same nostalgic feel to it. The revamped The Ship now looks more modern and spruced up, largely thanks to the glass windows running across the entire length of the restaurant. They don’t have as many booth seats as before I think. It’s hard to snag one now especially during lunch time.

I had no idea that The Ship was famous for its Fish Soup Noodles. Most of the items on the menu are Western dishes. But guess what, half the people dining at The Ship order the famous fish soup noodles, and so have I for the 3 occasions that I’ve been back.
