On lah...just let me know which day so I can take 1/2-day leave...hahah
1/2 day? Wat time you leave your work? You sure can get to sentosa by 1pm cos lunch normally ends by 2.30pm.

Day wise, i'm easy as long as not fri. Must do in apr though.

If you really keen, let me know by tonite hor. I need to buy the coupons for the segway ride tonite. Always wanted to try riding them, but so exp! Now got discount

Err, its not a bumper car ride you know. Although i never rode b4, but from what i saw, its very smooth and stable. Besides i am actually thinking of doing the ride in the morning at 9am+, then maybe go sun tan at the beach before lunch.

Seafood on ice - There was no crayfishes or big head prawns today.

Sushi and Sashimi - Was busy taking photo and Toons sneaked off and sapu all the Swordfish sashimi and that was the last of it for the day due to no shipment from Japan. Managed to try one piece though.






Scallop's wings or whatever you called it. Marinated in some sweet sauce and it yummy.

Chicken station - Three different types of cooking styles, roasted, steamed and braised. No too bad for hotel standard.



Steamed fish - I love this dish, had a lot of it. The flesh of the fish is firm and springy but the label did not indicate what fish it was.



Herbal Chicken - Chicken is tender, and the herb fragrance infused within the meat.



Lamb - The meat was not tender and quite chewy.



Squid - Don't like it, over cooked.

Grilled Beef - Compared to the lamb, this one is tender and to my liking.



Curry Chicken - Not your usual red curry, not too bad but I like it more spicy.



Curry Fish - Found it a bit on the dry side, seem like it was deep fried then cooked in curry.



Aquamarine Chef's Chilli Lobster Claws - Instead of the usual crabs, this was an unique change but then I still find crabs to taste much better.

Sampler plate of local foods - Since when is nuggets considered a local food!? The pandan chicken was tender though the pandan fragrance is not strong enough.





Cheeses - Well, today I am into cheese, tried all of them and I particularly enjoyed the Boursin, the crackers provided was exposed to air and not crispy any more but I found a nice combination using the prawn cracker, those that usually comes with roasted chicken in a wedding.

With buffet comes the desserts.

Opera Cake - I still cannot sing Opera after eating it.



Cheese cake - Already had my share of cheeses today so didn't try this.



Green Tea cake



Peach Mousse Sponge Cake



White and Dark Chocolate Mousse Cake

Apple Pie







Durian Pengat

Egg Tarts - Found it good but can be better if it's warm. The pastry is flaky and the custard creamy.



Chocolate coated Cream Puffs
- If only the cream is cold, it would be perfect.



Keuh Lapis









Overall, the food varieties are not much and they do not have any dishes that are outstanding to warrant me a "must come back again" trip unless there is the 1 for 1 promotion and I happened to be on leave. Service is good though which is the case for most hotels now.
