Bird's Nest Cafe

Firstly, I would like to express my heart felt thanks to LT for treating me to a birthday dinner last wonderful Wednesday evening at the Bird's Nest Cafe. This guy has always managed to surprise me with the choice of place to dine in. Not only are they unique, the food served are always wonderfully good, most of them will be worth at least four out of five stars. I hope we will continue to stay in touch after graduation and may our friendship last~ =)

160 Orchard Road #01-13 Orchard Point, Singapore 238842

Set in a secluded corner inside OG Point, the outlet offers a quiet and relaxing ambient for people to forget a hard day's work and soak into the tasty and nutritious bird's nest fusion meals. With their current promotion at $22.90++ 5 course 1 for 1 meal, the offer is simply hard to resist. Customers will be spoilt for choice, particularly at the number of selections of bird's nest fusion deserts on offer in the menu. Without further ado, allow me to provide a brief review of the cafe finest food. =)


1st Course: Appetizer

Pan fried carrot cake; juicy pork, shrimp and bird's nest fusion siew mai; together with crispy mashed yam and minced meat - Simply irresistible!!
Rate: 9.5/10
2nd Course: Chicken Soup
.Nicely boiled tender chicken with soft carrot chunks, the aroma simply sets you flying through the air!! One set back though, the chef adds just a little overboard of pepper, which over-rides the sweet chicken taste of the soup. Nevertheless, the soup is still good to go~ =)
Rate: 7/10
3rd Course: Grilled Black Pepper Chicken with Chicken Rice
Fragrant, tasty chicken rice toppled with spicy black pepper gravy. The chicken is cooked to just the right amount of time so that the meat is still tender and springy. One of the best dishes I have tasted so far. =)
Rate: 9.5/10
4th Course: Chilled Soft Beancurd with Half Cherry

Originally, this was supposed to be bird's nest mooncake, but I guess since the mid autumn festival is already over, they have stopped producing them, thus substituting with the beancurd as desert. I find it just normal, nothing out of the special.

Rate: 6/10


5th Course: Coffee / Tea


Nicely brewed coffee with milk to sweeten it up. One of the better ones I have drank so far, but still, I find it nothing special.

Rate: 7/10


Now, coming to service, I must say that they are all very professional! Each of the waitress there will be on the lookout at the pace their customers are finishing their meal, so that the next course will be ready to be served just as they finished the existing one. Their services really get me impressed. Definitely worth every money for the price paid. For the service, I gave them...

Rate: 10/10

The ever increasing cost

Since when did
  1. KFC chicken serving size is reduced by 50%
  2. The nice and tender 宫保鸡丁cubes at the deck is substituted by hard chicken breast meat
  3. The 红烧牛肉面 is not 红烧牛肉 anymore
  4. Most of the food in NUS cost $3 nowadays on average

I am so poor......

~I want the GST package now!!!~

Shokudo Japanese Food Bazaar

First of all, I would like to thank Fab, Mary, GZ and Perry for organizing and making the time and effort to come out and celebrate the September babies birthday last Sunday at Shokudo Japanese Food Bazaar despite the hectic Year 4 schedule. It was a wonderful feeling to meet again and talk our hearts out. I am glad that GZ has managed to find a permanent job, and is quite near his house some more~ =) It was my first time at this Marche concept Japanese Food Bazaar. What Japanese style food could they possibly serve inside?
. The front view
Grilled Chicken Omu Rice
After walking round and round the whole complex, I finally decided on the Grilled Chicken Omu Rice (picture above) as it look the most appetizing of them all. Nicely grilled and tender served with onion rice and a omelet on top, the display simply set my saliva drooling. I would say the food is not bad, and reasonably priced too at $7.80. Definitely worth your money!
Rate: 7/10
Next up, I ordered the Rosti (yup, the same one as Marche) as I have not eaten one in ages. Heh heh, speaking of Marche, GZ, you still owe me a meal hor.... =p Hmm, didn't know why, maybe the person who fried it isn't skilled enough as I find the potato strips a bit over fried and oily. Did not get to enjoy it much. Oh well, but my Omu rice more than make up for the failed Rosti.
Rate: 5.5/10
. The Springfield Polo
4 GB Flash Drive
Hmm, how did you all guess that I need a thumb drive? =) Thank you again for the wonderful gifts and companionship. You all make my day~ Can't wait for our next basketball game just before the term break! =)

Once upon a time

As I stand chatting with this former colleague of mine in my IA company, I could not help but notice the enthusiasm and excitement that exhibits out from his aura, which is good. Looking back at me, what about the hope, and excitement that I also once possessed? All is lost in the ream of time in the gallows of musty engineering dungeons.....
