White asparagus season again with Marriott Pool Grill–And the steaks are perennially good!

It’s white asparagus season again, so for those of you who love white asparagus, now’s the time to indulge when these beautiful stems are at their best. And for those of you who have never tried white asparagus, I highly recommend you to, not least because of the nutrients that’s packed in them. They are juicier, more tender and sweeter than the green asparagus variety.

From now until 30 April, you can sample white asparagus at Marriott Pool Grill, specially flown in from the Netherlands. There are 3 ala-carte dishes to choose from.

Marriott Pool Grill - Classic ( Steamed white asparagus, poached egg, hollandaise sauce)  $20

 Classic (Steamed white asparagus, poached egg, hollandaise sauce) $20

This is the most affordable dish if you just mainly want to sample the white asparagus in its full glory. The creamy and buttery poached egg goes really well with the juicy sweetness of the asparagus.

Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel Festive Afternoon Tea

If there’s one thing I love doing during the Christmas season, that’s having afternoon tea. There is an unexplainable pleasure just sitting around sipping cups of tea and savouring dainty morsels amidst Christmassy decor. I’ve been meaning to visit Marriott Hotel for its Afternoon Tea as they have the 1-for-1 promo using the Entertainer App. Good to know that the promo was still applicable during the festive period. Did a spot of shopping at Tangs before and after our afternoon tea. What a really convenient location to rest your feet for a while, say if you’re waiting for a ride home or waiting for a friend.

Edward’s 4th afternoon tea outing (previous ones were Goodwood Park Hotel, Grand Copthorne Waterfront and Chef’s Table at Capella Sentosa). He loves going out because of all the attention he gets, and for some reason, he loves people watching too! He especially loves watching people deep in conversation, wonder why? He had an early Christmas gift too, a little Marriott Tang Plaza monkey soft toy, which he promptly decided to lick….

Marriott Festive Afternoon Tea (2)

Ok here are the pictures of the afternoon tea. The teas are refillable and you can also order as many different pots of tea as you wish. We were pleasantly surprised to find out that the food items were refillable, as it wasn’t stated on the website!

[Christmas 2016] Mandarin Orchard Singapore–Festive discounts if you book early!

Did you know it’s less than 2 weeks to Christmas? At the start of the year, it always feels like such a long time to wait till Christmas comes, but before you know it, the Christmas season has descended upon us full blown. How I wish Christmas was a week long so that I may have time to indulge in all the festive treats! Don’t you feel like Christmas Eve and Christmas Day is just not enough days to celebrate?

It’s not been my practice to buy log cakes for eating at home because I’ve always been so caught up in making my reservations to dine outside. But this year, just to make the house a little more festive (for Baby you know), I might just purchase a log cake to “adorn” the house. Smile

Mandarin Orchard has FOUR log cakes to choose from, each one sounding more decadent than the previous! The Valhrona Chocolate log definitely has my name on it, me being the chocolate lover…. But really, the hazelnut mango yule log sounds good too. How to decide?
