Four Seasons Wedding Dinner

My cousin recently got married at the Four Seasons Hotel and I was really happy to be able to partake in the happy occasion, not just because well it’s my cousin’s wedding, but because I myself got married at the Four Seasons Hotel 3 years ago and I have been waiting for an opportunity to relive the experience again from a guest’s point of view minus all the hair-pulling stress!

I think I might have mentioned before that I really love the Four Seasons Grand ballroom for the high ceiling, arched windows and decor. It’s great to have a wedding lunch at Four Seasons because the arched windows let in natural daylight, something that few hotel ballrooms can boast of I’m sure. Plus the minimum tables that you have to guarantee is 22 for lunch and 25 for dinner (approx there I think), which is not too difficult to hit (as compared to other hotels) to get the grand ballroom. And have you seen the sitting lounge area, love the decor there, and it’s similar up in the rooms as well! Gosh how I wish I can have another staycation at Four Seasons Hotel again!

Anyway let me leave you to enjoy the pictures of the wedding and wedding dinner. Smile

Wedding Candybar

For a good part of the wedding, I’d been cracking my brains to come up with something creative yet still wedding worthy if you know what I mean. Didn’t really want a live band or singers because seriously, you spend a bomb and people hardly even notice that they’re there. Those who do happen to sit near the stage and I know of people who have complained of the noise!

I wanted something a little whimsical, to sort of make me feel better that I didn’t get to have a garden wedding. A garden wedding is something that is so pretty, and I think most brides would consider it, but to be realistic, most guests hate garden weddings thanks to the Singapore weather! And trust me, as a bride, you don’t want to be worrying about whether it’s going to rain either. I made the decision not to have a garden wedding, but I still wanted to have my cake and eat it.

And that’s when I thought of having a candy bar! It doesn’t seem such a common thing for now, and I hope I’m one of the first few to set the trend going! One of the best parts about preparing for my wedding were the parts where I was researching on candy bars. So many whimsical and eye popping candy bars pictures out there!! With all manner of variations from the types of candy to whether you want biscuits, macarons, cupcakes, canapes and what have you!

Four Seasons Hotel Wedding

I can’t believe a week has past since my wedding at 4 Seasons hotel! Months and months of preparation all leading up to this grand day. It was really a whirlwind affair, memorable no doubt because I have been talking non-stop about it to anyone who wants to listen! I have so much to blog about that I don’t even know where to start, which is kind of the reason why one week has elapsed without me writing anything.

I’ll get round to detailing everything, but for now I’m revelling in my regained free time! It’s back to binging again during the weekends, swimming during daylight hours without fearing getting tanned, and just basically having more time to catch up on my favourite activities like blogging and baking!

For now, let me leave you with photos of the Four Seasons Wedding Lunch Banquet. Photos are all courtesy of my official wedding photographer Daniel Beh. Absolutely love love love the Four Seasons Ballroom, with its full length windows on one side. It’s a cosy size too, high ceiling without any pillars, max tables is 32, but we had a really comfortable and spacious ballroom with only 22 tables. I have to count my lucky stars that we managed to get this beautiful ballroom without having to guarantee a much higher table count. I am itching for someone to get married at Four Seasons and invite me so that I can relive the memories again! Smile Smile Smile

Marina Link Mall

I think I caught the mall bug from Tiny Island, I went mall visiting today. First to Marina Bay Sands, then to the newly opened Marina Link Mall. In contrast to the crowds at Marina Bay Sands, Marina Link Mall was a total ghost town. I’m not surprised either. It’s a good 10 to 15 minute walk from Marina Bay Sands and is next to the new Marina Bay Financial Centre. It’s Sunday today so there are no office workers to patronise the place. I’m surprised it’s even open. If I wasn’t in a mall hopping mood, I would have just stayed at Marina Bay Sands.

The new Marina Bay Financial Centre is cool. The sea views from the offices must be fantastic. I should know since I used to work in one of the Shenton Way buildings facing the sea. One big blue expanse of sea, the sight was enough to calm your nerves on the most stressful of days. The view will only get better when the gardens by the bay are completed. What a pretty picture. The banks and big businesses know it and have offices there.

Here are some pictures I took of Marina Link Mall. Maybe I should return again on a work day when the shops aren’t empty. It would be nice to feel the buzz of the lunch time crowd, especially if I don’t have to go to work!

Fruit Frolic

Pain Reliever Fruit Juice

I had a fruit juice from Fruit Frolic after my 15 minute trek to Marina Link Mall. This concoction of lime, orange, pineapple and some other fruit is supposed to relieve pain. Well I don’t know about that but I think one of my resolutions for 2011 is to eat more fruits. Instead of coffee every morning, I shall strive to have a fruit juice instead. Fruit itself would be better but hey, baby steps!

Madison DeliMadison Deli Menu

Madison Deli – Heard that the owner felt a lack of New York styled sandwiches in Singapore so he set up Madison Deli to fill the gap. I do love checking out new delis and cafes for their sandwiches. That’s another 2011 resolution I have, to eat more sandwiches and salads for lunch. Going to decrease my intake of fried noodles, white rice and cooked food.

Yamakawa Super

Yamakawa – Store selling Japanese snacks and drinks

Swiss Bake

Swissbake – Similar to Cedele in that they have lots of European breads here. There is also a Cedele at Marina Link Mall.

Four Seasons Gourmet Market

Four Seasons gourmet market – They sell a lot of organic stuff here. They also have a lot of interesting food items not available in the usual Cold Storage or NTUC. You can get things like pheasant pate here and rabbit.

Pel-Freez Rabbit

Rare bit of rabbit. Rabbit is a very healthy meat you know. Don’t believe I’ve tried it before but I will soon. Daniel Boulud @ Marina Bay Sands offers rabbit for dinner and the Partner is quite keen to go. Hardly see rabbit in Singapore, and today alone, I’ve encountered it twice. Wonder if it is because of the upcoming Rabbit Year? Don’t bother with buying the gold rabbit ornaments or rabbit toys, eat more rabbit!

Alli Oli Spanish Deli & Cafe

Alli Oli Spanish Deli & Cafe – Another deli/cafe! Opened by the Four Seasons Gourmet Market.

There are many more stores and restaurants. You can get here via the Raffles Place MRT station.

One-Ninety Restaurant at Four Seasons Hotel

I love their buffet tasting menus….small tapas sized bites from the ala carte menu that you can order, again and again and again. The buffet tasting menu is about $68 for dinner.

Dessert was the best part. My favourite dish was the Strawberry Cobbler with Tomato. Tomato in dessert may sound weird, but let me dispel any fears, this cobbler is damn DELICIOUS! I ordered it 3 times. I know of no where else in Singapore that serves such good cobbler/pie. In fact, I don’t even know if any other place in Singapore serves cobbler!
