Birthday Feast @ Blue Bali on Cluny

Blue Bali on Cluny
Although I have not being to Bali (a small island in Indonesia) but I have heard good reviews on their food and many of its tourist attractions from friends who went over for holidays. So last Saturday, we decided to make a reservation at Blue Bali on Cluny to have an early celebration for my Birthday.

As usual, we found this restaurant using the Entertainer App which is now one of our reliable food source adviser that provides great saving dining deals.

[Blue Bali on Cluny]
Blue Bali on Cluny is located along the backyard of a colonial house at Bukit Timah which is within the faculty at the back of NUS Law School. And due to its “hidden” location, first timer might take quite a bit of time to find the place (like we nearly give up finding the location because google map just pin “10D Cluny Road” ends the car park entrance of Singapore Botanic Garden; Nassim Road) if you are not familiar with the area.

2014 Lunar New Year Bakes #1 - Cheesy Pineapple Roll and Black Gold

Chinese Lunar New Year is less than two weeks from now and you can see lot of festive goodies available in either supermarkets, bakery shops and even most of the households are busy with making their own expertise of bakes. Every year for my household, we only make pineapple tarts/rolls because they are our favourite and also when compared to the rest of the new year bakes (such as love letter, almond cookies, kueh balu, kueh lapis and etc) this is consider the most easiest with the help of ready-made pineapple paste.

Hoshino Coffee - 星乃珈琲店

[Hoshino Coffee] Hoshino Spaghetti
Every time when I went to the Uniqlo outlet at Plaza Singapura (PS), I will always see people queuing outside Hoshino Coffee which is famous for their Japanese hand-dripped coffee and fluffy souffle style pancakes. So two weeks ago while we were in town doing some Christmas shopping we decided to drop their outlet at PS to have our lunch.

[Hoshino Coffee] My mum and aunt
Since this is a casual family lunch with everyone around waiting for the food; I just took some quick photos using my mobile phone. And here is my mum and my lovely aunty who dote me since I am a toddler. For me it is always so warm-hearted to see their closed sisters’ kinship throughout the years where they often keep each other in mind.
