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.

I thought MUJI was just a clothing store until I realised it had a Cafe as well. The first thing that came to my mind when I saw it was IKEA :). There were plenty of options to choose from as well (click the link for the menu).

For high calories dependents, I need the 4-Deli set- basically rice with 4 side dishes.
