Food gracious me

I swear I feel like I am the world’s laziest person ever whenever I see the gigantic gap of the days in between each post.

I have been having too much fun every day after leaving the terrible office life that its getting criminal. So here I present to you my food findings just, you know, to make you envious and wishing you’ll have some time off to slack.

Its surprising how some people have this concept that people who “throw letter” (tender resignation) before finding another job are just being lazy and try to make up excuses. My standard reply to people like that, I tell them “Being unemployed is a luxury in Singapore. Bitch, I’m luxurious.”

You gotta admit, its true. HAHAHAHA. When I was stuck in the office job, I always go to work 35 mins earlier, and leave later than stipulated. And every single day I am desperately crawling towards the weekend. Some people like that routine and stability, but I can’t.

I AM A DANDELION. 

Anyway yes I have been trying to cram in as many activities as I can into these 2 short months before the review (for my next job) date is due, end May. I mentioned in my previous post that I will be going to Boracay BUT WHAT THE FUCK the plane timings are so weird and they don’t cater flights every other day.

WILL I BE STRANDED IN PINOYLAND IN THIS CASE? AND THEN I WILL HAVE TO GO PLAY LAN WITH THEM AND PEOPLE WILL SCOLD ME PUTAINGA MO. 

So yes sadly I changed it to Phuket. Boracay will have to wait till I find a PH boyfriend. ;D

My first stop will be Melaka this weekend. So, wait for me 😀

So yes some goddess reviews. I love to eat but I am not hipster enough to do cafe hopping all the time (because most of these  places ulu as fuck and I only got my legs and an ezlink)

The hugely raved Spathe (Yes I did my online homework)

SPATHE PUBLIC HOUSE,
8 Mohamed Sultan Rd #01-01, 238958

 

IMG_2699IMG_2700

The exterior looks like some taiwanese eatery that sells pork buns and stuff. HAHAHA.

I love the interior though. Bricks. I just have this really unexplained fetish for all kinds of bricks. LOL.

Yes, I just wanted to take a selfie with the brick wall behind. JUST HAD TO.

IMG_2704

It’s a simple menu with just a few choices. I, obviously took the most gluttonous one which was the heartiest full American breakfast and eggs done scrambled. Paired it with a strawberry lime cider.

I personally prefer Rekorderlig to Kopparberg.

The highlight was the scrambled. It was done really really well. I still can’t really figure what did they put inside. But I’m sure there some sort of cooking cream/ milk kind of dairy. How else is it so moist and creamy!?!?!?!? :O

Everything else was so-so. The bread was the most O.O I didn’t touch it after one bite. The mushrooms were also really rich and creamy, and bacon was really salty thus if you add everything up you feel abit sick halfway through the meal.

And of course we just had to have it served on some sort of a hipsterish wooden serving board.

I R8 it 7/10 for decor, 6/10 for value, and 7/10 for food.

Just in case you guys have not realized it Sherlocks is here to inform he discovered that your goddess really likes brunches. All day breakfasts ; the creamy scrambled eggs, the smell of freshly brewed tea and coffee + daily made bread with snowy butter. GOD DAMN FOOOD. WHY AM I SO FAT, I JUST WANT TO EAT EVERYTHING.

The exercise that you need to do after that….

i cant do this

But who cares right.

My next stop:

Fourty Hands
78 Yong Siak Street, #01-12, 163078

One of the really super ulu places. Thank god my friend drove. But even so we had to find it using GPS.

IMG_3121

I really really liked the decor of this place. All the little ornaments reminded me of the little trinkets that i will download in my sims 3 to spruce up the place. Everything there had a rustic feel and that’s my favorite.

I was seated right in front of the daily made goods. Looks really pleasing.

I ordered fresh orange juice with OF COURSE, THE BREAKFAST PLATTER. My friend ordered eggs Benedict with steak and potatoes.

IMG_3124

I prefer this one to the one at Spathe because I like my food to be comfort-ish. (Like, wet and sloppy). They have the beef sauce here which I really love as it seem to wonderfully complete the otherwise rather dry food items.

Loved the sausage, bacon was not too salty. Tomatoes were well grilled, you can still taste that charcoal.Mushrooms and scrambled were good, however the ones at Spathe were creamier and more flavorful.

And as for the flatbread/ pita.. it was O.O as well. I didn’t eat it after one bite. SOUNDS FAMILIAR. LOL. I think it would have been better if the dough was spread out thinner or maybe just hotter. This one was cold and the spread given was too little.

I wouldn’t have minded just traditional bread slices or a bun.

IMG_3125

Eggs Benedict was really good. Steak was nice, bun was soft and well toasted. The eggs…. Well I daresay it was done to perfection. Both eggs were round and beautifully shaped. Just the right temperature.

Potatoes were extremely delicious.

IMG_3126

I R8 8/10 for decor, 8/10 for value, 8/10 for food. It is definitely worth a visit. DESPITE IT BEING AT SOME REALLY RANDOM PLACE IN SINGAPORE. Just when you think Singapore is really small……

____________________________________________

After brunch, obviously it’s time to show somewhere to bring your girlfriend to for a fancy dinner. You know, just to show that you really love her and all.

I finally got to try Morton’s.

Morton’s, The Steakhouse
6 Raffles Blvd, Marina Square, 039797

It’s located inside Mandarin Oriental. And yes it’s pricey af.

IT FILLS YOU UP BUT EMPTIES YOU AT THE SAME TIME. *HA HA HA*

 

IMG_3026

This is the Morton’s bar, famous for their cocktails.

I swear you could feel your wallet crying when you step into the restaurant.

flippin money
You can find their full menu on their website as well.

My friend and I shared a Signature cut new york strip 20 Oz. He had shrimp alexander for starters whilst I had a crab cake.

Our meat was accompanied by sauteed mushrooms with spinach and mashed potatoes. MY ABSOLUTE FAV.

Restaurant was dimly lit and I was shooting with my shitty Iphone so yes I had to artificially brighten all the photos. The ambiance was good. We had some obnoxious Singaporean guy making alot of fuss next table but other than that it was all good.

IMG_3030
The shrimps were fresh and FREAKING ASS HUGE. LIKE REALLY.

IMG_3032

IMG_3036

JUST LOOK IT CAN FILL UP THE ENTIRE CIRCUMFERENCE OF THE BREAD ROLL PLATE. I’M NOT SHITTING YOU. But then again for such a hefty price I kinda expected the prawns to get up and dance jazz.

My crab cake:

IMG_3035

It was tasty, but the one I had in HongKong “The steakhouse” is much much better.

One half of the steak, medium rare; accompanied by mash with sour cream, a thick slab of butter and bacon. And of course, the spinach with mushrooms.

 

IMG_3040

IMG_3042

It was good steak. I felt it was well prepared. It was balanced, and done-ness was on point. My chef friend said it wasn’t well rested after searing which resulted in alot of juice but hell I liked it anyway. As you know, I like stuff wet 😉

Potatoes were so sinful you’d be in heaven after a taste. Spinach was good but a tad too salty.

My friend had Crème brûlée for dessert which I opted for an extremely light one. Fresh strawberries with whipped cream. It doesn’t get any better than this.

It was really delicious.

IMG_3044

Give this place a try if you are just like me, REALLY LOVE YOUR STEAKS. And if you have extra to spare.

I R8 9/10 for ambiance, 9/10 for food.

Ok that’s enough of food for now.

ate too much meme.jpg

I went to Aeon ( My regular Korean doctor for my laser ) to do a much hyped Hydro facial. The trial price was affordable. It was really good. *UPDATED as of 6/8* They no longer offer the trial due to overwhelming response but it is really good guys. I highly recommend it.

IMG_2966

They use a suction kind of tool to extract dirt instead of the old fashioned metal stick (remember my previous post I told you how the metal stick caused all the scars that I have till today)

hydrafacial_featured_image

So this suction method is actually painless and scarless. Which is what you want. Weather is so bad recently so this hydro facial really worked so well. Just look at my skin. Shiny and fresh. HAHAHA.

If you are interested in the trial, please do drop by the clinic at

9 Scotts Road #06-02/03 Scotts Medical Centre @ Pacific Plaza, 228210

This is their official website: http://www.aeonmedical.com.sg

If you are interested in the laser or any other services, you can quote my name or just name my blog Voir Valeisky and they will give you a good price.

I bought a CC cream from them. 45 Dollars. Ok for sensitive and oily skin.

Before and after: (Sorry lighting is fucked as usual)

It sorts out the discoloration and uneven skin tone + gives extremely good coverage.

So yes, I promise I will blog about my Melaka trip as soon as I am back. I PROMISE. OMG NO, YOU NEED TO HAVE FAITH IN ME.

OK I WILL LOOK AT THIS GIF EVERY DAY I PROMISE.
