After the first few days of CNY, all the shops open for business and it gets really crowded in the shopping centres. Everyone's trying to spend their ang pow money.
Lunch @ Fat London Duck, Scotts Square. Surprise! It's actually goose.
The signature calf liver dish is a must try. It is bouncy & soft, almost no taste with a sweet ginger sauce. The signature rice roll has fried youtiao inside stuffed with seafood, usually when there is youtiao there is no meat but here there is both.
When I was at SweeGek's place, I tried Chococino that is ridiculously yummy. Instant hot chocolate with marshmellows melted in already. So I dropped by FairPrice next to the restaurant to get a packet, 25 sachets for around $7.
I was walking through Isetan and Takashimaya to get some lucky bags and its slim pickings. Luckily the instore sales were really good 50% to 70% discounts. I ended up shopping the post Christmas sale, scored an orange panettone, Harrods coffee & tea, Crabtree & Evelyn gift box.
During CNY, Singapore Pools hosts its annual multi-million dollar lotteries. Last week the prize pool was $7 million! Tonight is the ang pow draw and the prize pool is $12 million. I bought $20 ang pow hoping for the best, I didn't win anything last week but things might be different tonight.
My old bed set broke into 2, right down the middle just before my new bed got delivered, so I was sleeping on the spare mattress set for a couple of days.
I went to Courts to get the new bed coz you can get a pretty decent bed for around $1,000. As we found out, super single costs as much as queen size. So I decided on a King Koil queen bed frame custom made with beige micro-suede upholstery. Simmons mattress with aloe vera mattress topper. Final Price $1,360 including a free mattress cover and 2 pillows, we bought some pillow covers on the way out). Is that price unbelievable or what.
My new Disney bedsheets are from Isetan, Frozen Tsum Tsum and Alice in Wonderland. 700ct microfibre sheet sets $49.90 each.
