Christmas 2018–Christmas Celebrations at Jamie’s Italian

If you’re not a fan of celebrating Christmas at a hotel restaurant, and would prefer a somewhat cosier atmosphere, you can consider Jamie’s Italian. Jamie’s Italian is located at both VivoCity and Forum Shopping Mall. One will be offering a semi-buffet, while the other will be offering a set course.

Christmas 2018–Attractively-priced Festive semi-buffets at Four Seasons Hotel

Gosh has it been 6 years? Four Seasons Hotel will always hold a soft spot in my heart because that’s where we got married just under 6 years ago. I’ve only been back once since, for my cousin’s wedding a couple of years back (the elegant Grand Ballroom’s floor to ceiling glass wall is just hard to resist). So happy to be able to revisit once again. I hear the rooms have undergone a refurbishment, I would certainly be keen to check them out. I remember being very impressed with the classy decor back then.

What’s impressive too is the Christmas spread that will be dished up to diners during this Christmas festive season. If you’re having any of the festive buffets at One-Ninety Restaurant, you must check out things like the duck liver parfait with Jamon, the chestnut soup, the fresh seafood spread and the turkey. I don’t think I’ve ever come across chestnut soup before, but the chestnut soup that night was so memorable, it’s a wonder why this velvety and earthy soup isn’t more widely available. It was so good, I’ve since bought a packet of chestnuts to hopefully recreate a similar tasting soup at home. The seafood spread needs no introduction except for me to say that it was very fresh. And as for the turkey, don’t skip it because this is one very tender version. The buffet spread also features high quality imported cheeses from France and Italy.

If you feel a full buffet is just too much to indulge in and too painful on the wallet, Four Season’s Festive Semi-Buffets are worth considering. For example they have the following semi-buffets in addition to full-buffets and set courses:

  • Festive Semi-Buffet Lunch (3-30 Dec 2018 except Christmas/New Year’s  Day) – $58/adult
  • Christmas Eve Semi-Buffet Dinner (24 Dec 2018) – $128/adult
  • Christmas Day Semi-Buffet Dinner (25 Dec 2018) – $88/adult
  • New Year’s Day Semi Buffet Brunch (1 Jan 2019) – $88/adult

I’ve been looking at Christmas buffet pricings of various hotels and for a top-tier hotel, this is a tad cheaper than if you were to go for full buffets! So you still get to bask in the Christmassy atmosphere but at a “discount”. Scroll down for a selection of photos from the Christmas buffet.

Holiday Inn Singapore Orchard City Centre

We were recently invited to check out Holiday Inn Singapore Orchard City Centre as they have a new promotion called Jump Start Your Weekend. I was keen to book a date soon after our return from our New Zealand travels, because you know, you always need another holiday to recover from the 1st holiday! And it’s also nice to be able to look forward to a little something when you feel depressed that your big holiday is over. And as for Edward, he loves hotels and is always keen to check out yet another! Staycation here we come!

Holiday Inn Orchard City Centre Staycation (12)

As far as I can see, there are only 2 room types at Holiday Inn Singapore Orchard City Centre and we were provided the Premier King room. We had asked for a room on a high floor and with a good view, something that we always ask for when we check into hotels. In this case, we managed to snag a 7th floor room (the hotel is 8 storeys high) and facing the expressway. Yes this is actually the better view because right across the expressway is the Istana grounds, so its basically greenery directly after the expressway. And I must say the windows were thick enough such that we couldn’t hear the expressway traffic anyway, so that was fine.

Outback Steakhouse is 30 years old! Enjoy up to 30% discount!

Did you know that Outback Steakhouse is 30 years old this year? To celebrate its 30th birthday, Outback Steakhouse will be offering up to 30% discounts when you dine there. Scroll down to the end of the post for details on how to obtain the 30% discount. We checked out Outback Steakhouse’s outlet at Orchard Gateway. I prefer this outlet compared to the previous location at Millenia Walk as it’s much brighter here and the decor is not so dated.

Outback Steakhouse Singapore - Typhoon Boom $15.90

I’ve always liked Outback Steakhouse for its famous Typhoon onion rings. When I was first served the dish more than a decade ago, I was amazed. I still am amazed actually! The humongous portion of onion rings still tastes so good after all these years. Huge crispy piping hot onion rings, not tiny flimsy bits. So good.
