Marmalade Pantry at the Stables Revisited

After the wonderful Valentine’s Day Dinner at Marmalade Pantry at the Stables in Bukit Timah, I was privileged to be invited again to sample Marmalade Pantry’s more popular dishes, as well as the dishes that are only available at this outlet and not at Orchard ION.

If you have the time, do visit Pantry at the Stables during the day as you would be able to better appreciate its unique dining location surrounded lush greenery which surrounds the Bukit Timah Saddle Club. Night time is also good if you are looking for a romantic evening. I will warn you in advance that it is really pitch dark beyond the restaurant area, so it is not possible to walk out unless you feel extremely brave. Hmm, the lack of light might actually make this a good place to catch some of Singapore’s night sky.

It was a nice quiet evening for me, Wilson of http://Gurkhason.wordpress.com and Melissa of http://Melicacy.com. We got to sample a great many dishes and it was a wonder how we even managed to stumble out the restaurant.

I always end up posting desserts last if I’m doing the post in chronological order, but I think I’ll give the desserts some airtime today because the cupcakes are just so pretty!

Don’t you think the cupcakes look so luscious??? My favourite has always been the Hazelnut chocolate cupcake, which is the one on the top right. If you’re a fan of Nutella you would love it! The nice thing about Marmalade Pantry’s cupcakes are that the frosting is pretty thick and flat, which makes for easy eating. I don’t really fancy those with sky-high frosting as it just seems a little hard to eat and most times you try to lick the cream off first anyway to avoid having any land on your nose.

A creamy one which I didn’t try, but it does look so pretty though!

This is the Elvis Cupcake, which is banana cake with a peanut butter frosting.

A favourite for many ladies, the Red Velvet cupcake. The redness comes from beetroot juice that is used. Marmalade Pantry at the Stables - (2)

Marina Bay Sands Infinity Swimming Pool

I think anyone who has seen the Marina Bay Sands Swimming Pool will surely agree that it must be one of the most beautiful looking hotel pools in the world! It’s quite long, which is really good for serious swimmers, although I think most people will be here just to gawk at the scenery. Many other older hotels have really tiny and unshapely pools, which is a pity. I think there is a trend nowadays for hotels to make a statement for themselves via the design of their pools.

Then there’s the red deckchairs, which make for good contrast in photos. This must be like one of the best places to sun tan, cuz there’s no other tall building to block the sun’s rays. Just don’t book a stay here on one of Singapore’s public holidays, or you’ll be wading in a sea of people.

The use of the swimming pool facility is only available for hotel guests from 6am – 10pm, although visitors are obviously able to view a portion of it. Visitors can only access the SkyPark from 10am onwards, so shy swimmers should try to make use of the magic hours between 6am – 10am to have their swim if they don’t want their every move scrutinised. And I can tell you, there will be photographs galore. There is no way anyone with a camera or iPhone would leave without snapping some pictures of the pool.

These photos were taken at 3pm on a Friday afternoon.

Marina Bay Sands Infinity Pool

Did you know the infinity swimming pool is 150-meters long and is the world’s largest outdoor pool at that height?

I like how they’ve thought of everything by putting out the flat beds for people to sun tan in.

I personally find that it’s usually to bright to read out in the open like this even though it’s such a relaxing idea to do so.

This photo makes me feel like the city is just a step away.
