Dinner @ Birds of a Feather

Was there for a birthday party. The food was supposedly to be Sichuan fusion though more like western with a tint of the former. The food presentation, lighting and ambience was great, though the taste and menu offerings could have been better.

Lunch at Corner House

Thanks to wife I got to celebrate my birthday with a lunch at the Corner House. The service is impeccable (including the buggy ride because of the rain) and food was splendid.Β There was also ample supply of soft, warm bread to provide the necessary calories.Β DSC00581_upload

Supposed to be a belated Valentine’s lunch with my wife (purposely avoid the marked up Valentine set) but ended up with a marked up CNY 8-course set lunch. πŸ™‚

This is named ”firecrackers”. Not that it look like one but its spicy enough to lit fire in our mouths.

Overall, this is the best vegetarian lunch we ever had and perhaps we are really getting old… we are still not hungry by 7pm. πŸ™‚

And more if you get more stamps by patronising the restaurant.

The best camera a photographer has is the one he carries. Unfortunately, I have to make do with my smartphone as I did not expect this lunch πŸ™‚

SATS Premier Lounge

I have to catch a flight at 9.20am and left home very early to avoid the jam to the airport. I would have grab a quick breakfast if not for a complimentary access to the lounge, blessing from the DBS Altitude card. This card came with a priority pass with two complimentary access to many lounges all over the world (see here). In fact, there are quite a few travel friendly credit cards that provide lounge access as well (see here). However, as far as I’m concern, I still prefer the Altitude over the rest because its annual fee can be waived if a minimum amount is charged to the card per year. At 25,000, it is quite doable if all the combined family expenses are charged to it. So the travel benefits and air miles really comes with no additional cost.

Anyway, here’s what I enjoyed for free.
