We went to Singapore last wknd.  Both dh and I had to do some banking there.  Plus, dh had 3 nights of SPG redemption left.  Had to use it by the end of the month.  We chose the St Regis again b/c it’s convenient for me to walk from the shopping complexes.  This time we had lunch and brkfst at the hotel-Brasserie Les Saveurs, an intercontinental restaurant with French brasserie favorites.  It was raining and we were hungry after checking in.  Dh checked out the spread and it looked very good.   The restaurant had his fave French oysters from Quiberon Bay.  He had a dozen of those.  Loved them with raspberry vinegar w/onions.  They were $3 a piece.  I never had them and have to admit they’re the best oysters I’ve ever had.  The sashimis were perfectly cut, not cubed, especially the hamachi.  Had a second helping of those.  I loved my baby salad greens with walnut dressing.  Will have to look up a recipe for that dressing.  Grilled prawns were perfect with my salad. The clam chowder was too creamy for me.   My main course was pan-seared Pacific seabass.  Dh had the wagyu beef cheeks. I almost got that too but we were going to Lawry’s for dinner that night.   Dessert was ok.  I had creme brulee, choc mousse, and cheese cake.  Didn’t have any of the yummy pastries.  I had to control myself.   We will try hightea or dinner there next time.

We usually have breakfast at the hotel.  I have my eggs and sausages and dh has to have his eggs benedict.  This time I also had muesli with fresh berries.

Sheraton Tower Suites Lounge and Giorgio’s

Almost 2 weeks ago, my dh had some business meetings in BGK.  I played hooky from carpooling the kids to school and tagged along with him.  Dh’s mom was more than willing to help the maid out with the kids, so off we went.  I prepared 2 days worth of meals for them.  Then the rest of the days, mil had to cook or took the kids  out to eat. 

We stayed at The Royal Orchid Sheraton.  Dh booked us into a very nice grand deluxe suite at the newly renovated Tower Suites.  This suite came with brkfst,  afternoon tea and cocktails at the floor lounge with free internet..  The first night we were there, we had a little too much at tea time, so we skipped dinner.  Especially good were the salmon quiche and homemade rolls with salami and gherkins.  My favorite was the tart filled with sauteed shallots and rolls of roastbeef.  

We only ate at one of the hotel’s restaurants once.  Giorgio’s has pretty good Italian food.  Dh wanted to stay in b/c he was exhausted from his business meetings and trips to 2 manufacturers.  We didn’t order much.  Dh had the porkchop and I had the prawn scampi.  We didn’t order any starters.  The 3 types of fresh bread were very good with olive oil and balsamic vinegar as dips.  The chef gave us complimentary appetizers of crab and garlic on thinly toasted bread.  I was surprised the food was quite good.  My shrimp scampi was not what I was used to, but it was alright.  Dh was very satisfied with his porkchop.  The main entees came with a mixed veggie of green and yellow squash, bell peppers and beans. I tried not to eat too many starches with my meals(except my weakness for fresh breads),  Surprisingly, the fried potatoes were very tasty.  It must have been the fresh rosemary that the chef used.  I will have to try rosemary with fried potatoes at home.  Giorgio’s is quite a huge restaurant and only 4 table were occupied with a total of six diners.  I guess most people went for the other restaurants. There was a Thai restaurant famous for aunthentic Thai food from the royal palace and another restaurant known for their seafood bbqs and cultural shows.

Cinnamon rolls

Made these yesterday.  I have a weakness for fresh bread and rolls.  The kids love having cinn rolls for snack.  Aly, my picky eater who has a hard time eating brkfst so early b/f going to school school, will have these.  I’m happy about that.  I added raisens to half of the recipe and made them into mini sizes.    The smell of it baking is just heavenly.  I always use this recipe I  came across from Oprah’s website:

Simple breakfast

Last night I planned to make pizza, but dh was like “ugh”.  Ok, I told him I saw decent sized steaks at Tesco, so off we went.  Got four 8-10 oz steaks and we had that for dinner instead.  The kids shared 2 steaks btw the 3 of them.  Anyway, the dough meant for the pizza base, I made into rolls and breadsticks.  I used the rolls for this morning’s brkfst.  First, I sliced the rolls in half, buttered them to brown on a nonstick pan.  Along with those, I cracked an egg and folded the yolks with the whites.  There was enough space for a piece of ham.  After a couple of minutes, stack ’em up to make a yummy sandwich.  The rolls tasted like English muffins.  What’s missing was some hollandaise sauce to make it taste like eggs Benedict.   Man, forgot about a slice of cheese.  That would’ve been perfect, but fattening.  Yum!
