How could we let Valentine's Day go by jux like that? Hence, we devoted the weekend before Valentine's Day to our celebration~ Hee~
Here's our food trail!
10th February, Saturday:
These were so yummy! Such a pretty sight too! These undoubtedly made a most wonderful gift for Valentine's Day~ The strawberry jelly layer was not too sweet, the cheesecake layer was rich, and the crust layer was yummylicious-ly crumbly~ Love the perfect little strawberry hearts embedded in the jelly!
Jellyhearts is a home business; u can call 94597711 to order~ $8 for a box of 10 or $16 for a box of 20~
Was good! ^_^
Watched Spirited Away as we ate~ Exchanged pressies~ Made love coupons for baby! He loved them~ ^_^
Part of what i got from baby:
All the goodies are heart-shaped! So sweet! ^_^
Headed to chinatown to soak in the chinese new year atmosphere~ We were packed like sardines and the heat was unbearable! Still fun nevertheless; bought some interesting candies for the upcoming Chinese New Year~
Had our dinner there~
Can't remember the exact name of the restuarant, but there's "tiong bahru" in it. We had lemon chicken rice and it came with peanut soup. Baby ordered 2 more side dishes; their zhao pai tofu and stir fried veggies~ Everything was so tasty! ^_^
11th February, Sunday:
Decided on making chicken chop! It was our first attempt and im proud to say that we did a pretty fine job!
Look at the huge servings! Especially our favourite straight-cut fries and that heap of coleslaw! Wahaha~
Dinner was wanton mee in heeren~ Im sure most people who have been to heeren would know about this place. Pontian wanton mee or noodles, not too sure~
I love their springy noodles, unlike those factory-made quality offered in most coffee shops' stalls. Their fried wantons are crispy and fillings are generous. Noodles are tossed in this savoury dark sauce; mouthwatering! Self-service for green chilli (perfect condiment for wanton mee!) and mayonnaise (essential for the fried wanton!)~
14th February, Wednesday, Valentine's Day!
We actually made a reservation a week ago for dinner at terra cafe (bugis) on Valentine's Day; foreseeing the sizable crowds and long queues everywhere.
Proved to be a wise choice as we look at the long queue snaking from the restaurant's entrance to who-knows-where and thought, "Ha! Silly people who did not make reservations! Serves u all right for having to wait! I shall take my time and slowly devour my food while u all stand waiting with ur bouquets of flowers and aching feet!" Wahaha~
Evil, i know. ^_^
2 fish 'n chips sets (includes soup-of-the-day and dessert) and shared a chocolate milkshake. Blissful~ ^_^
Aren't the roses huge?
Look what i found:
There's TWO strawberry kiss(es) inside!!! How rare! Jux reached into a bag of strawberry kiss(es) which mum bought and fished this out! What a timely find for Valentine's Day! ^_^
I call this good boding! ^_^
