Senso Ristorante & Bar Moët & Chandon Courtyard Brunch

Senso Moet & Chandon The Courtyard Brunch  (15)

You may be familiar with Senso’s Italian Prosecco Brunch on Sundays which I blogged about some months back. In addition to this, Senso has now introduced a Moët & Chandon Brunch, to be held every quarterly. These are the special themes (later months tentative) : 

  • October 2018 – Imperial Brut (by bottle)
  • December 2018 – Ice Imperial —> 2nd December, it’s this weekend!
  • March 2019 – Imperial Brut (Magnum)
  • June 2019 – Ice Imperial 
  • September 2019 – Moet Rose
  • December 2019 – Moet Grand Vintage

The Moët & Chandon Brunch will feature a Pop-up Champagne Bar in the Courtyard, with free flow of Champagne, red & white wines and beers. If it’s too much work to visit the Champagne bar, do not fret because the waiters come by often to refill your glasses anyway. Senso’s Italian buffet of salads, antipasti, hot mains, pastas, desserts and other Italian classics will be available. And if you are in a party mood, you will like the House Music by Senso’s resident DJ Donat’. Check out this video taken during October’s Courtyard Brunch, it looks like the party atmosphere is going strong! You don’t have to sit in the courtyard though. We sat in air-conditioned comfort indoors. Smile

The next Moët & Chandon Brunch will be held on 2nd December from 11.30am to 3pm and there are but a few seats left. $108++ per person for free-flow alcohol or $68++ for no alcohol. Scroll down for some photos and a video taken at the 1st ever Moët & Chandon Brunch back in October.

Go-Ang Pratunam Chicken Rice – Affordable eats at NEX

[Media Invite]

If you frequent Bangkok often, you might be familiar with Go-Ang Kaomunkai Pratunam, an eatery that specialises in Thai Hainanese chicken rice. The eatery was established all the way back in 1960 and was awarded the Michelin Bib Gourmand Awared in the 1st Bangkok edition of the Michelin Guide.

The good news is that Go-Ang has opened its first overseas outlet in Singapore. The Singapore outlet is called Go-Ang Pratunam Chicken Rice and is located in NEX in Serangoon. To ensure that the dishes served in Singapore are authentic, all kitchen staff are trained by Go-Ang founder Mr Sombat Pruekpaiboon at the original restaurant in Bangkok. Go-Ang is managed by The Minor Food Group Singapore, the restaurant group behind Xin Wang Hong Kong Café and ThaiExpress.

I was invited to Go-Ang’s recent launch and had the opportunity to taste quite a number of the dishes available. I’ve never tried the version in Bangkok, so let me compare this version here vs other chicken rice in Singapore that we are more familiar with.

NOX Dine in the Dark – A mind-blowing experience

This is probably the only post from me that contains no pictures. Yes, I finally experienced NOX Dine in the Dark, and I have to say this stands out as one of the most memorable dining experiences I have ever had.

Truth be told, when NOX first opened back in 2013, I had briefly heard about it and thought the concept to be gimmicky. When I was contacted for the media tasting, I was surprised to find that they are still around! But after finding out what the concept is all about, and experiencing NOX first hand, I have to say that the experience was nothing short of amazing. If you are looking out for new experiences, or feel like every restaurant is the same these days, you need to go experience NOX.

So what is NOX – Dine in the Dark anyway? As the name suggests, guests dine in a restaurant that is completely pitch black. You have to use your other senses, such as taste, touch, smell and hearing to experience the food. The idea is that without sight, your other senses are heightened for a more exploratory dining journey. The servers are specially trained blind or visually impaired people. The prix fixe three course menu will be served via 12 tasting dishes, ie 4 dishes per course. If you don’t want “spoilers” you should totally go make a reservation right now (Christmas treat maybe?) and not scroll any further.

SuperPark – Mega Indoor Activity Park from Finland opens in Singapore!

[Media Invite]

This is no ordinary indoor playground for children. For the first time ever in Singapore, there is an indoor activity park that caters to adults as well as children! It’s called SuperPark and it’s so huge it takes up 2 levels at Suntec Tower One! The idea for an all-in-one indoor park came from a Finnish father, Taneli Sutinen, who got fed-up after trying to accompany his daughter through a kid-sized activity space.

SuperPark - Super Pinball

I’m very glad he did get fed-up because SuperPark is really a great idea! There are so many activity zones that you could probably spend half a day here and still not be finished with all the games. I’m also very happy that finally there’s something for adults, because hey you know adults wanna have fun too!

I think if you look at the pictures and videos, you will see how fun it is. SuperPark is most suitable for adults and children that are 3+ years or 100 cm tall. If the child is younger, there are a number of activities that they won’t have the height, strength or coordination to participate in, unless they are dare devils! That’s why it’s free entry for kids below 3. There are no child tickets, everyone pays the same price if you’re aged 3 and above. So, the older and more independent your kids, the better it is for you to be able to play your own games, rather than chaperoning them all over. Better yet, go kid free and really get a chance to indulge in all the activities for once!

SuperPark is divided into 3 main areas : Adventure Area, Game Arena and Freestyle Hall. Scroll down to see pictures of each of the activities available. The photos without the 365days2play watermark are photos courtesy of SuperPark Singapore. You can also tell which are Edward’s favourite activities as there are more photos and videos of him. I think we only covered half the activities available in the 2 hours that we were there because we repeated the ones we liked the most and that were suitable for Edward’s age.

Christmas 2018 – An illuminating Christmas at Pan Pacific Singapore

Christmas is but just over a month away. Are you ready for all the festivities!??!?!? Based on years of experience, do not wait till Christmas Eve or Christmas Day to celebrate the day, because the precious day just goes so fast. IMHO, you need to get into the Christmas spirit now! Start soaking in the festivities now, because before you know it, January will descend upon us like a ton of bricks.

So that means meeting up with friends over Christmas afternoon tea and Christmas dinner, walking down Orchard Road to see the Christmas Lights (it’ll still be fun even if you aren’t a fan of Disney) and stocking up on Christmas cookies and log cake. If you’re thinking of buying a real live Christmas tree but not sure about it, I say go for it. The smell of fresh pine is incredible, and even if you do not decorate it with a single ornament, your house will still smell of Christmas.

In the next few days I will be featuring places to get your Christmas goodies or have your Christmas Eve / Christmas Day lunch or dinner. Scroll down to read more!
