I had a belated birthday celebration for my wife at the Pelican. The food was great but the peaceful and quiet time together was even better 🙂
Roasted pumpkin, japanese pumpkin salad with feta cheese
Crumbled bleu cobb, tomato, bacon, avocado, chopped egg
Baked salmon fillet, glazed peas and cucumber
Pelican burger, chopped steak, smoked ketchup, fries
Sweet potato cake, served with sweet potato cream
And after sending her back to office, I found some time to take advantage of the blue skies.
I specifically came on a preview day that is held on a weekday to avoid the crowd.
Two and a halve years after attending the Palm View Primary School open house, my wife and I eventually did enroll our eldest child in the school. Like all parents, we are excited on this day and hope she survive well.
(Not much pictures today as I didn’t bring my camera, so just make do with my tablet).
After some briefing by the principal and parent volunteers, we were allowed to see how our children did in their first recess… reminds me of feeding time in the zoo. 🙂
No parents were allowed in and its actually pretty chaotic inside. Each child has 30 minutes to queue, buy and eat. Quite a number of parents actually brought food to give their children more time to eat instead of queuing.
And finally by 2.30pm, we were happy to welcome her off the school bus… mission accomplished.
Compared to my time 30 years ago, the children now did much better for their transition from K2 to P1, probably due to the ‘training’ they had in childcare. I still remember my traumatic experience and crying for my mom… no cries today at all. 🙂
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.
Usual seafood selection
Salad station, my favorite.
and Christmas special pastries
The food is nice but the selection is quite limited for the price.
Today, we brought our kids for a visit to Hay’s Dairies Goat Farm. We got to know this as one of the healthy activities organised by the Health Promotion Board.
Cocoa powder added to improve the taste.
This is my first trip to Sentosa Cove. I had long heard about the restaurants and wanted to explore them. Finally, found time to sample one with my wife.
Interesting layout and decorations
There’s many drinks, mainly wine which not quite what we can take. So we just settle for simple ones. Next up, the hot tapas.
Calamares a la Plancha- Pan-fried calamari
Champinones al Ajillo- Garlic mushrooms
Verduras a la Parrila con Aceite de Oliva- Mixed grilled vegetables with extra virgin olive oil
Gambas- Grilled red leg prawns served with miso mayonnaise
Atun a la Parrilla- Grilled tuna steak served with chachouka
After the lunch, we had a nice stroll back to the car park.
The food is nice, just too little calories for me… as usual.

Best time to come is during lunch to avoid the crowd.
The entire exhibition is mainly 2 video screening and one display exhibit.
There is also a playground outside for the kids. Though noon is not really that idea for fun.
