Lunch at Indochine, Gardens by the Bay

With kids in school, my wife and I found time to have an early valentine’s day lunch at Indochine, Gardens by the Bay. There’s a minimum spending of $80 per pax but I wonder how the restaurant will enforce this.

Christmas dinner @ Azur, Crowne Plaza Changi Airport

This is my second time at Azur but the first time for Christmas dinner. But most surprising is seeing the sashimi and a quick check with NEA website provides the assurances.
