Oh..so we were not exceptions. He is known for macarons keeper and daokia.



Nope, claypot did the job. The son sat there eat and sang to himself once a in while haha. I only offered him the lollipops I kapoh from the candy jars

Lobsters seemed to be available whole night yesterday. Around 8 onwards the queue shortened. But not promised for tonight? Maybe what leftover yesterday night is the balance for tonight

Old stomach digestion not good, bo bian. First plate of lobsters already 1/3 full. What to do...I even gave up a super tempting plump oyster after contemplating for sometime






To avoid the need to share with you his food first if got acknowledged as member here
What daokia I shy shy.

Btw, Brazil churrasco celebrating their anniversary this Wed 24. Offering 20% discount. Think end up same price as their Sunday brunch. Just in case you keen. Their dinner spread is better right?
Actually Sunday brunch is the same menu as dinner haha

Ya I tried calling for the free makan but impossible one siah

Had buffet at basilico regent hotel yesterday. Very nice, but the spread not very wide.
Quite a small restaurant but thats OK with me

I must be losing my appetite though as i get older. Cant seem to eat so much

We actually a bit hesitant after all the negative reviews, but luckily ytd's comments slightly better, so decided to just give it a try since we dun have high expectations afterall.

Lobsters generally tough ... or too chewy to be exact. Tough too strong a word. Certain pieces were better though ... Midway, they ran out of lobsters n changed to just serving the pincers. Then a while later, the lobsters came back again. Queue wasn't tat long. Actually restaurant only abt 80% full nia.

Veal cheeks nice. Fatty n tender. Cooked prawns over cooked n not fresh. Oysters not bad. Roasted meats, beef carving, sashimi all okay nia. Their ice cream/sorbet not bad, esp nice is the lime sorbet. Other desserts also avg imo. Although they have several choc desserts, but they added orange peel to the choc which i dun fancy.

Liked their earl grey n mint teas. Service is good.

Overall, okay dinner. Nothing really outstanding. Dun think i will be going back anytime soon even at $52 nett lor. At the same price range, i prefer other places, eg, Hilton's seafood buffet.

Carey, need your advice.

Just did my health screening n a bit worried abt my LDL reading.

For a person strictly on the low carb n sugar + high fats diet, what kind of cholesterol profile should he be seeing? Not tat i'm on it, I cheat way too much

Triglycerides : should be low(which is good cos trigs are bad)

HDL : should be high (which is good as HDL is considered good cholesterol)

How abt LDL? Should a person on LCHF diet be seeing high or low LDL?

Mine is high, which is worrying as LDL is considered bad cholesterol. In fact, the high LDL combined with high HDL resulted in a high total cholesterol reading (although the 'Total/HDL ratio' is still normal).

Remembered you saying that the more impt reading is Triglycerides, but i'm not sure if a 'low Triglycerides with high LDL' profile is considered 'okay'.

My doc asking me to consider cholesterol meds ... Not keen. I'll rather go back to drinking veg soups n eating fishes n cutting back on buffets to reduce my LDL. When i did it in '09, my LDL only 63 nia, which is optimal, but its very sian lor.

Gum sia in advance!

To buffet lovers n all those on high fats meat diet:

eat everything in moderation.
so wat if one's cholesterol level is healthy? eating too much of one particular kind of food increases his risk of getting cancers.
BEWARE!

fm granny mum who surprisingly had gd cholesterol level despite being obese (making fitzai toons both angry n jealous )
