School holiday means catching up on my beauty sleep, respite from school books, breather from everything academic and eating out. I’ve been sleeping in till 7:30 am (not so lucky to sleep in way past 8 am though) since Saturday and getting 8 hours of sleep has reinvigorated my mind, body and soul! Lunches and dinners have all been settled outside of the house since Saturday. If only everyday is a holiday!
Well, today I am itching to cook again coz much as I love food served aesthetically to me without me lifting a finger, I just can’t tolerate the high sodium, oil and additives added into our food. My girls feel the same too. We were so stuffed after going on a food marathon yesterday that we only ate toasts and some raw veggies for dinner last night.
We reached the mall by 11 am yesterday. Since we were pretty early, we got a table at Sushi Zanmai effortlessly without the usual crazy long queue. The girls’ grand uncle from New Zealand joined us for brunch.
After brunch, we went shopping. I got my swimsuit.. finally!
After shopping, my trencherman dragged us to Haegan Dazs, albeit the girls were treated to Baskin Robbins by their grand uncle just an hour ago.
See, someone just could not wait, though all I needed was just 5 seconds to snap the picture. He photobombed the ice-cream photo!!
2 scoops of macadamia nuts for him and 1 scoop of salted caramel for Cass and me.
After walking non-stop for 3 hours or so, we were still feeling a tad hungry, though we had ice-creams sloshing around in our tummies! The foodie hubs then dragged us to the newly opened Ben’s General Food Store @ Gardens to try out the food.
Desserts were just middling. I didn’t like the S’more cookie and raspberry doughnut at all. The walnut brownie were.. well, OK.
The Chicken Spit Roast bundle was to die for! We waited for almost 20 minutes for the chicken to arrive but it was down to the bones in just 5-10 minutes. Very yummy indeed. Hubs commented that his 3 princesses are like very famished piranhas!!
So he ordered another roast chicken – a quarter Thai roast chicken bundle and again, the chick was dug fast to the bone in just minutes!! Even the delish chicken stock sauce flavored with a hint of Thai was downed to the last drop!
The kicap manis roast egg plant with baby French beans and chicken salad didn’t really go well with the girls as they didn’t like their salad sweet and cold. I told them that I’ll make something similar for them, sans the sweet sauce next week. So watch this space!
Three happy girls after half a day of retail and food therapy!
