Singapore Adventure: Wifey Cookie's Birthday Month

I love birthdays!  And this year, I had a month-long celebration.  Good food, good company, and the well-wishes of my good friends made it even more special.  But of course, all I want for my 31st birthday is my Hubby Cookie. <3

19 March
Brunch at Epicurious in Boat Quay.  It was really my birthday celebration, it was Fred's birthday treat.  But I did consider it as the start of my birthday revelries. :)

After a hearty brunch of Full Monty, we took a stroll down to Clarke Quay then decided to take a 30-minute Singapore River Cruise.  Surprisingly, it was worthwhile!  The breeze was really relaxing, and the recorded male voice of a tour guide was not annoying at all. Hahaha...

20-21 March
My Hubby Cookie's birthday treat for me was an overnight stay at the Marina Bay Sands.  We spent two days at the posh hotel and felt like we actually left Singapore.

The view on the Observation Deck was really awesome, and the Infinity Pool was just jaw-dropping.  Well, we didn't really take a dip in the pool.  But Hubby Cookie promised that the next time we visit MBS, we will definitely!

My birthday dinner was at the Todai International Seafood and Sushi Buffet Restaurant.  It's located in the mall wing of MBS.  And it was quite a long walk from the hotel lobby.  We got lost initially, but we did make it in time for our booking. :)

When we entered the restaurant, it was reminiscent of Spiral @ Hotel Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila.  There were long lines of different dishes, salad options, seafood and sushi, asian delicacies - even Chili Crab and fried mantou, a pasta station, a Korean selection, roasted and grilled food choices, and a wide selection of drinks!  Hubby Cookie almost lost it seeing the Iced Milo dispenser!  Hahahaha.. :))  Too bad we asked for in-room dining a few hours earlier and so we were not really hungry.  But again, Hubby Cookie promised a repeat!  So looking forward. 

The restaurant is currently running a 10% discount on the buffet price until the end of March 2011.  So if you are up for some serious food tripping, head on there as soon as you can.  Dinner is at 58SGD ++.  Yeah, everything in SG has a ++ suffix at the price tag, so that's a heads up! :)

Breakfast the following day was at Rise.  We've been to Rise once in the past for dinner on our 55th month as boyfriend/girlfriend.  It was also a treat eating at Rise.  Most of their staff are Pinoy and so you are assured of a great dining experience when it comes to service.

It was a great birthday treat indeed! Thanks to my Hubby Cookie!

25 March

It was a Fri-date! :)  A nice cozy dinner at Chili's - one of our favorite places to dine here in Singapore. We had to queue for almost an hour but it was worth the wait.  And of course, it's Friday.  It pays to be patient, after all, any other place would be just as packed. :)

I am a sucker for chips and salsa.  So yeah, that's always at the top of the order list.  We had a juicy burger and ribs as well.  And it was all good, as always! :)  Lots of Pinoy in their staff, too.  So great service is again assured.

26 March

I booked the Cookies for a couple's massage.  It's been a while since our last massage and we still have a few sessions in our package.  We need to start using them up!  1.5 hours later, two "tender" Cookies left A Fond spa in South Bridge Road and started the 10 minute walk to Kreta Ayer for some Filipino food.

Bonifacio Modern Filipino Cuisine has always served up to it's name - Filipino Cuisine at it's finest! :)  And they have sisig!  Take that Gerry's Grill @ MBS Rasapura Masters! No more sisig at 2pm on a Monday???  Sheesh... ;( We also ordered for mango shakes, and that's with real Philippine Mangoes! *drool*  When I book for our next massage schedule, it's a definite lunch stop.  I have vouchers to use after all.  You get a 10SGD off on every 50SGD spent in the food bill. :)  Calling on the Cookies' food trip buds!

27 March

And of course, to show my appreciation of my dear friends for their well-wishes and support of us Cookies for the year that passed, we invited them for a nice buffet dinner at Café Mosaic at the Carlton Hotel on Bras Basah.  Starhub is running a 1-for-1 dinner promotion if you present the subscription bill.  Their buffet selection was not as "international" as the others we've been to were, but it was still okay.  They had some dishes that were really nice, like the crayfish dish and the steam fish dish.  They also had those nice prawn balls that looked to us like "tukneneng" at first glance. Hahaha...

There's 4 more days left in my birthday month.  There's still time.  I wonder what other "events" we can squeeze in til then. ;)
