Ever since we started dating, weekends somehow became our time together, and I enjoy spending the time together. Singapore, however, is a small country, with very little spots that are suitable for dates. So what do we usually do on our date nights? We eat.
I used to be this stick thin girl before I got together with Kris, and I didn’t had much say on the food to eat then while in past relationships.
And for the past 26 months, all I did was eat and eat, and travelled and eat and travelled. I put on so much weight I can no longer fit into XS, and my body fats is hovering about an unhealthy range of 30.8%, oh god.
Groupon is pretty much a good place for me to get my sources of food to go to, especially when I feel like treating Kris to a meal…
Yesterday’s date included a trip to a doggie cafe for lunch and a sumptuous 9 course japanese for dinner. Yup, you got that right, both places were deals I purchased from Groupon.
Dog Dot Cafe
16 Morse Road No. 227
Awesome lighting calls for selfies with the happy doggie. Mini’s dressed in http://www.facebook.com/shopminidoll outfit.
More selfies… My happy pills.
Kris had the Nasi Lemak and Mushroom soup. Nasi Lemak was pretty tasty, loved the chilli and the chicken wings were pretty swell too! We were pretty amazed by the cute way they arranged the rice actually. Is it a hopping bunny, or a doggie?
It really isn’t even surprising that Kris will order the mushroom soup. Its like his favourite and definite order, just like Coke is my staple at every meal.
There were tons of chopped mushrooms in the soup, it is very flavorful as well, but just somehow lacking a wee bit of something. Maybe the soup was just too… watery?
An unfortunate, or fortunate, incident happened however. Someone’s ball (they were playing fetch with their doggie) landed smack right in the soup, and splashed soup all over my hair, my face and my top, as well as on the owner’s dog… I didn’t know if I should be pissed, but it was just a really hilarious situation. They ended up footing our bill for us without telling us, so I get to keep my $25 worth of groupon vouchers for another time.
Lasagna, me likey.
Loads of places for the doggies to roam and play, and Mini met a fellow Jack Russell nameda Jack.
The owner’s dogs! Rudolf, 2 year old Chihuahua, and Kupi, 9 year old Pomeranian.
I cannot express how cute Kupi is! The little sweetheart of a furball just keeps curling up and letting everyone snuggle her – owner says because she’s too fat and lazy!
Mini’s bowl of brown rice, lamb and mixed veggies. This is about $7, but we get the option of topping up a dollar to make it a set with milk. Mini doesn’t like drinking milk hence we didn’t get that set, but I thought it was pretty worth.
The place is pretty new I think, hence it was pretty quiet for a Saturday. Besides Rudolf and Kupi, the residential dogs, there’s only Jack and Mini. Hence the furkids had a lot of places to run away and fight and yelp at each other.
En Grill and Bar
UE Square, River Valley Road
Dinner was another pretty awesome place to dine at. We never knew of this place despite being Japanese food lovers – UE Square is also unbelievably huge with alot of restaurants. The carpark is also hugely complicated, and we spent about 15 minutes after our dinner trying to find the car as we couldn’t walk outside due to the pouring rain.
Just in case anyone’s wondering, there were 4 of us, hence we have 4 sticks here.
I didn’t like the white fish.
Steak was alright, done medium rare the way I like it, but the chicken wasn’t too…. satisfying. The sauce was way too sweet!
The store was out of stock of chocolate ice cream, the vanilla wasn’t too bad though. Along with the whipped cream and the strawberries.
Food wasn’t that delectable, nor was it something that would render me going there again, but hey, $68 for this for 2 pax wasn’t too bad.
The night ended with John Wick at Suntec City – I LOVE LOVE LOVE the new cinema! I don’t think there’s any other theatres that have such comfy seats! And they sell Churros too, for $11! Obviously I couldn’t take a picture in the cinema since they brought it to me as the show was gonna start. Churros with vanilla ice cream, peaches and berries, and Chocolate dip… Kris never had a thing for such sweet stuffs, so I finished everything. Every damn thing myself. Now we know why I’m putting on so much weight. Urghs.
John Wick is a pretty kick ass show, go catch it! 4 popcorns outta 5! The part on the doggie dying made me teared a little…
