Social Square by MOF (Waterway Point)

ABBEY: From time to time, we spend sometime to eat outside usually after our weekly grocery. 

We went to Social Square @ Waterway Point. It is one of the brands of MOF (Ministry of Food). I got Grilled Chicken Pesto (S$15.00). The chicken is moist and juicy. And the pasta yummy and got flavorful taste of pesto. Wow.

WILL: 
I am more of "udon" than a ramen and on that week I am craving for it but CitlyLink's Mall is seriously far from our flat, so we decided to hunt an udon at Waterway Point at Punggol and we found ---. 

No hesitation and second thought, I went for Plain Udon + Kakiage Tempura ($14.80). I dug in as the attendant placed my meal in front of me. The udon is firm as usual, the kakiage is crisp and not faltering in that texture. But the soup is not as tasty as I am expecting. *Sad Face* 

Anyways, I am there to have a bite of udon. Will I come back? Hmm, maybe not.

Gold Class (VivoCity) - Golden Village Cinemas

ABBEY: We pampered ourselves by booking a pair of Golden Village Gold Class tickets to watch The Great Wall premiere for 120.50SGD. 

It was Christmas day and people flocked the mall as well as the theaters. But for us, we enjoyed our time in the Gold Class lounge. Aside from the snacks that comes with ticket purchase (date pudding with vanilla ice cream and a glass of brut), we got a box of popcorn for a few cents more than the usual but no queues. Yes, the food were delivered to your seat. The lazy-boy-type seat is comfortable. I gave all the blankets to Wilma as she got very cold. Haha. It was a good experience. But I hope the price should be less :) And also if the table can be dragged towards you to ease the process of munching your snacks, it would be better. 

They also offer sodas, juice, fries and burgers on their menu. With just a push of a button (like in a plane) they will come and attend to your needs.

WILL: Leave was not approved and it will not be a hindrance for me and Abbey to joyful on that season. As they say, if there's a will, there's a way. And this is our way to celebrate holidays...splurging in cinema. 

We booked Gold Class at Golden Village Vivocity. We got a discount for almost $5 (Abbey is a GV Movie Club Member). 

What to expect inside? A Very-very-very important person treatment. Once you step-in at the foyer an extraordinary smile will greet you. A seat is there to keep you comfortable while waiting for the time. A free wifi and an attendant that always there checking on your needs (warm or cold water). They have their own washroom, actually everything is in there. Yup! Even popcorn! You do not need to join the lone queue outside. 

Inside the cinema itself, of course it is given that you will have a La-z-Boy like seat. A mini table on the middle and blanket. I am disappointed when I smelled the blanket. Gosh! It seems that it was used by too many people and they forgot to changed it. We hurriedly call the attention of staff and they gave us new set of those. Unlike the Platinum Movie Suites - The Cathay they do not have a a table of your own that you can pull in and out on your pleasure and a privacy thingy that blocks other to look at your site.

The date pudding is tasty and heavy. I want to have another plate of it. Haha! 

Anyways, I am sorry for comparing. It still at your preference...our readers :) 

It is okay to splurge once in a while. Enjoy the fruit of our labor and enjoy life! 

Happy New Year to all of you!

Sankranti (Everyday Festival) - Fine Dining @ Changi Business Park

ABBEY: In search of great-tasting briyani, my colleague told me about Sankranti. 

They have a branch at Plaza 8 (Changi Business Park). I had chicken briyani. It comes with raita and gravy and two big pieces of chicken. It is delicious. I got a take-away for Wilma so she can taste the food treasure that I discover. She liked it and finally we dined there after meeting with the Philippine President Duterte. 

It doesn't come cheap (~12SGD) but worth it.

WILL: If you have tasted Sankranti's Briyani, you may ask yourself "Am I only eating colored rice for the past few years just to be called 'briyani'?" Of course Bismillah is an exception. Ha! 

I will rate Sankrati's Briyani to be one of the best in Singapore. It is located at Changi and just steps away at Abbey's office. When I crave for Indian cuisine, he make sure to buy some this for me. 

The spiciness is bearable and you can buy vegetarian version of it. Do not forget to top your ooozing curried rice with its tasty yogurt! 

Before I forget, they are quite pricey. That is the only thing I can say in the negative side.
