Abit fr 23 Dec..and Xmas eve πŸŽ„πŸŽ…β›„οΈ

Ion orchard – a beautiful architecture which I'm never tired of admiring it πŸ˜‰

Dinner at Itacho with the hubby. Called to make reservation and was told need minimum spending of $50 per pax for reservation. Didn't want to join the crazy queue so decided to make the reservation. Anyway $100 is not that difficult cos both of us can really eat a lot πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜ This is my second visit to #itacho. Not only their sashimi are very fresh, must really applaud them for their service. Attentive and very prompt. Never fail to refill my tea without having to ask. Good job! πŸ‘πŸ‘

Gonna be a Santa in office and distribute my gifts to my colleagues today.. Have finally finished all the gifts wrapping last night. #alwayssolastminute Looking forward to our Xmas lunch in office today – Steamboat!! I'm in charge of bringing my fave crabsticks and eggs. πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹We even have to bring our individual ladle too haha πŸ˜‰

Steamboat in the office hee… Dig in! πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹ #steamboat #christmas

Our Xmas lunch in office today. It's a pot luck kinda concept. Each of us were in charge of bringing in certain items. We have to bring our individual ladle though haha.. Called the hubby up to help us take a group pic before we dig in to the food!! πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜‹πŸŽ…πŸŽ„πŸŽ‰β„οΈπŸŽβ›„οΈ

And my colleagues gave me a surprise cake after lunch. It was really a surprise, after clearing the mess and the washup, I walked back to the room, wanted to tell the gals to go and claim back their own ladle.. To my surprise, saw the cake on the table. My boss said I'm not suppose to enter the room yet haha.. Apparently the gals are still in the midst of preparing the πŸŽ‚ how sweet! Thanks Ladies for the sweet surprise! πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ’‹ #birthday #birthdaysurprise

Been hearing quite abit about this place. Was drawn to it due to it 3D latte art. Saw quite a few cute 3D kitties on IG but never really have a chance to go there. The hubby actually planned to bring me there yesterday for my bday. Coincidentally, they are closed on Mondays. Happened to chance upon their FB page and saw their X'mas dinner menu. $39.90 per pax, quite reasonable so decided to call & check. The dinner set is inclusive of a coffee. Topped up $3 for the 3D latte art.

We were there before 7pm hence the place was still not crowded then. Was lucky that they reserved an indoor table for us, at least can still enjoy the aircon hee..

This space caught my attention.. Very pretty isn't it? πŸ˜‰

First course – Wild mushroom soup πŸ„πŸ„

Second course : Caesar Salad

My main course : Linguine Aglio Olio with prawns and squid. It tasted pretty ok. But I was still very full over the steamboat lunch so couldn't finish this. Such a waste.. 😬

My dessert – Prune brownie with vanilla ice cream.. Forgot to take a pic of just the dessert itself cos I wasn't very impressed with its presentation haha 😝😝

The hubby's dessert. This one looked so much better than mine. Saw from the next table, even more impressive. They had a snowman drawn on their plate.

One final pic to end today's post, taken with my Iced Hazelnut latte.

Verdict of my X'mas dinner – quite a decent dinner at this price. Shouldn't have eaten so much during lunch and couldn't enjoy much of my dinner haha.. Gonna come back again and try their usual menu. Will ask the barista to make me another Kitty with a bow. #chockfullofbeans #xmasdinner #christmas2013
