This backdated post will sum up my entire birthday eve and birthday of this year!
It was my first birthday spent with hurhur, and i was asked to keep the eve and actual day free for a surprise.
Exciting, i must say, and i was itching every single bit to know what will the plans be back then, and finally on the eve of my birthday, 6th oct,
which fell on a Thursday, I met him at around 12 noon to go for a lunch before the plan starts!
We had a lil game and it was hilarious- i told him i will write down on a piece of paper to guess what are the plans,
and will share it with him after the entire thing to see if i'm a good guesser or if he's a good surpriser!
So turns out i got two wrong and two correct, read on to know. :)
I decided on this thai food (yes, im a great fan of thai food!) at Ang Mo Kio, and we tried this new place introduced by my golf khaki Justin,
who lives right smack within areas of good food.
Thai ice tea is a must have, and the basil pork which wasn't as good as expected.
Other places have better tasting basil pork.
Pineapple fried rice.
Absolutely tasty and flavourful, worth every single penny!
Located amongst the neighbourhood area and it's a lil pity on its location.
You can't really see it while driving along the road as it is situated below a block right inside of a carpark,
but It's definitely worth the try!
OnT AUTHENTIC THAI CUISINE
BLK 532 ANG MO KIO AVENUE 10
Monday to Wednesday: 11am to 2.30pm, 5pm to 10pm.
Thursday to Saturday: 11am to 2.30pm, 5pm to 11pm
Sunday: 11am to 2.30pm, 5pm to 10pm
The first step of the plan was revealed and it turned out to be a one night stay at Naumi Boutique Hotel!!
Heard about it long ago, and this hotel is situated at a good location (bugis area) with only limited rooms,
totally excited to see the room then!
The artsy lobby.
Got a birthday eve lilac dress from myheartsdesire, wore it with a matching feathered hairband, very purple-lish i know! :p
And the man behind the surprise! <3
Finally, we got our keys and guess what?
They upgraded us to a suite, wouldn't complain about birthdays falling on weekdays! :D
the suite was awesome, it was totally like a one room studio apartment.
The so called living room
but boohoo, it was raining!
Love the spacious bathroom, it is bigger than the pictures in real life.
it has a mini kitchen, doesnt seem like it but wait till you see what's hidden behind the mirrors.
It has everything that you can whip up a good meal! Though the toilet roll stuck to the door seems a lil off place. heh
i love coffee machines!
premium coffee and teas.
One thing about have a holiday (eg. staying in hotels) locally, especially in Singapore,
is definitely more worth it than anything else to just rest in the room and not go anywhere, (probably the very affordable hotels are an exception).
So we had a well-deserved rest chilling in the room, and caught movies – it came with complimentary movies rental!
We got prepared around evening time, i mean i was tasked to prepare by 6.30pm in due for a dinner at a "place"
outfit for the night!
and upon reaching, yes yes yes, dinner was totally AWESOME!!!
Morton's steakhouse, definitely a surprise for a first timer (me), they have birthday specials!
very cosy but not pretentious at all. it might seem like a posh place with hush hush talkings around but no,
love it that people were at ease eating, and it was comfortable just like eating in your own private area.
love their homemade bread, i could gobble up the entire thing but i was told to leave my tummy for better food to come.
seafood platter, fresh definitely, thumbs up!
steak was in a huge portion, and they are known for that.
so do note to just order one and share between two will do!
Very tastefully done up and meat was absolutely tender, ahhhh, i can't wait to go back for more!
Brussel Sprouts with bacon, i am so IN LOVE with this.
The crunchy brussel spouts and bacon combi was a total killer, and for people who do not like vegetables,
you might fall in love with vegetables after eating this i bet.
Experience was heavenly, and i must give them two thumbs up for the service and food quality.
Worth every single cent for sure, and though prices are a lil on the high side, but they do not compromise on the quality as well as quantity.
Would head back there for occasional dinners that's for sure.
For birthday specials, it came with a complimentary dessert! i chose their chocolate lava cake, anything for that!
what more can i say?
thank you hurhur, i had a wonderful night and an absolutely great dinner with you. <3
5 Raffles Avenue,
4F Mandarin Oriental Singapore,
(Do call to make reservations or you can make reservations online too)
Monday – Saturday 5:30pm – 11pm
Sunday 5pm – 10pm
So back to the guesses and surprises, i guessed:
Hotel: studio M
present (wasnt sure if there was one at first or not, but somehow i got a feeling via some lil hints :p) : wallet
dinner place: carnivore
activity on actual day: the lion king musical
and i was right for the present and activity! (yes we caught lion king the next day).
as you can see, i was wrong for the hotel and dinner, heh.
Guessed purely out of fun but wasn't expecting anything, just wanna be cheeky and i must say i was truly surprised by hurhur.
thank you bee!
Here's one outfit of the week to share!
Got this rich purple dress from myheartsdesire which definitely has a good material and one which accentuates your figure,
and perfect for a luncheon with a good o-time friend last week!
