I love the interior but surrounding its pretty disturbing… The place were noisy… Annoyed…

We had the VIP room for the first visit there with Jason and Jian Tong and etc for Aunty Serene’s Birthday~ Very small and warm.. *sweat*

The chandelier, it was too small I cant even get the whole room

We had a little cake cutting session @ Starbucks after dinner.. Wishing my aunty Serene pretty always~

Royal China Dim Sum Breakfast

Posted by: emily

September 12th, 2013 >> baby's playground, eastern, yummy yummy~

There’s once Chun booked a dim sum dining 2 weeks in advance because he couldn’t get us a table 1 week before.  And do you know which dim sum restaurant I meant?? No, not Tim Ho Wan although it’s most raved restaurant now.. It’s the best dim sum in Singapore claimed by some other bloggers, the Royal China @ Raffles Hotel.

2 weeks in advance babe! We’re not celebrating anything, its just that we love dim sum. So we eat for pleasure..

My first look at the dining room.. I totally felt cozy coz of the Antoinette teal color they used… It looks kinda Versailles and oriental combination interior and theme.. Very classy, totally different from those common Chinese restaurant interior with bold red and gold color setting. We were seated quite far behind from the entrance, I love it because it gives us more privacy rather than cramping us in between other bigger tables/groups who talk loudly..

Everything was ok but the first thing irked me was their menu. It was pretty worn out and dirty. There were blotches of oily dirt stains and patches of scotch tape on them.  The material were quite flimsy, I’m supposed it should be more prestige as their “atasness”. I guess it’s time for them to change..

image03

We waited for our order…

This is their steamed BBQ pork buns! I wish I had BBQ pork pastries, but I totally forgotten to order.

image07

 

Royal China’s Special Cheong Fan. A combination of barbecued pork, scallops and prawns cheong fan. Fluffy and fat Steamed Prawn dumplings:

Glutinous Rice in Lotus Leaf, and Phoenix Claws:

image08

 

The one and only item I wanted to eat the most, every time. The Infamous Custard Bun. They taste pretty different from other restaurant.. I guess maybe its their brand of margarine or butter used or maybe some special herbs or spices they added into the custard salty egg lava.. Still to my liking~ Oozing good lava custard.

Chun wanted to try this “special” dish which he was eying for quite some time. His favorite scallop and something out of norm he said. Deep Fried Yam Puff with Scallop in Portuguese Sauce. The scallop was undeniably huge..

It was a pretty satisfying breakfast but the wait made us expect more than this.. I wish it was more than just normal dim sum..

That’s all the dim sum feasting about.. Taaa~

malacca roadtrip during raya haji

Posted by: emily

March 26th, 2013 >> anniversaries, baby's playground, desserts, eastern, excursion, malacca, malaysian, special occasions, vacation, yummy yummy~

Although this was a very late post.. But I sorta kinda would like to post… Yeah… Me think so…

A last minute plan to visit the city of history, Malacca…

It was on our anniversary day! 6 years!~ woot!~ fun~

Early in the morning Chun came and picked me up to Jurong to meet up with his colleagues… We waited and waited for others to come also… I guess they’re late.. Coz they seem to look late.. So when the others arrived, we hop on the yellow bus towards JB town to meet up with others…

We was arranged to hitchin a ride in the other colleagues’ car to Malacca.. So the journey began…

And guess what, the car we were in… Has pink seats cover~ And it’s Hello Kitty.. LOL~ (It’s a guy’s car btw)

image12

I brought along my My Melody blankie, see they look good together… It was pretty hot sunny day… So I wore my Hawaii style top and also a flowery fedora~

image13

Reached Malacca in 3 hours I guess… All tired and jammed… It was very very packed because it’s a holiday weekend.. The Raya Haji week.. squished like the sardines in a can…

image15

image14  image16

Wanted to have our lunch at the famous chicken rice balls shop.. But… What the heck.. The queue is too long.. So one of the colleague who’s local there took us to a shop which doesn’t have lots of people.. I had laksa, and others had some other stuffs… It was abit so-so.. Not so ok style.. And I guess… The people out there queued for a reason… Delicious food..

image17

Dessert was okay either… Not so impressive but edible…

image18

 

Then, after the ok not so ok lunch.. This another colleague’s friend who’s also local took us to this concept cafe located behind some alley of Jonker Street…

It’s called Limau Limau.. The deco inside were pretty vintage and old.. Very sorta artistic with frames everywhere and random mixed and matched furniture.. Pin ups, notes and etc..

camwhore in action~

They serve creative slushie and juice.. Like example, mango passion and peppermint mix slushie, or maybe passion fruit orange and green tea? Something like that, cant really remember coz I order their Ice Cream Apple Crumble… Totally normal food… The apple crumble were pretty good.. Or maybe its the vanilla ice cream on a hot day… Or maybe it’s the unsatisfied tummy craving for laksa..

image22

something like passion fruit peppermint or maybe red ruby?

image23

oh hot day, I really love some icecream~

Check out my cat pouch… I think he look good in this pic… What do you think I should call him?? Hmm… Cant think of any name now.. Maybe later…

image24

The cat corner… Cute~

image25

We walked around the hot town.. Looking for more food or maybe just walk… Or maybe a hotel… The first one at Jonker Street were full.. So the person in the hotel recommended us their brother company’s hotel.. Maybe…

Everybody’s tired… But some of them wanted Satay Celup so they split to 2 groups… 1 checking in, and another 1 queue for satay celup.. Since 4pm… Geez…

We’re the one who went to check in.. =) happy…

The Mahkota Parade Hotel..

image27

After the check in, we drove to the Capitol Satay shop… And it looks like everyone is also queuing… Zzz.. Since before 3.30pm…

image28

Finally… We’re in!

Starting to tuck in…

Cat pouch takka picture… Still looking pretty good…

image29

Food…. Not my fave as usual…

image30

After the feasting… We all decided to walk around town again to lose some of the calories… While some others decided to send one of the friend back and also look for the Nejede layer cake…

image31

image33

Cat pouch was here in Malacca… The Red building at night…

image32

The next day was a pretty short day coz all they wanted was to look for the layer cake.. Which was successful but it was a pretty troublesome journey… We finally arrived home tired to the max…

It was a pretty fun experience with people I don’t really know… =)
