December Babies affair @ Stateland Cafe

Dinner date with December babies.

Love the rustic and industrial feel of this space 😍😍

Wheat everywhere..

They have a small private corner, app for small group gathering..

Can't help snapping more pics as it's so cozy here..

More wheats πŸ˜‰βœŒπŸ»οΈ

Definitely a first for me seeing fried shallots on ang moh nacho cheese fries. A great fusion creation. πŸ‘πŸ»

Mentaiko Tiger Prawns pasta, another fab fusion kicks with Japanese mentaiko, seaweed and ebikko; Chinese spring onions and Italian pasta. πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ˜‹

Okay time for a short commercial break..

Christmas gift exchange

Draw lots on the spot, the conventional way πŸ˜†

Our X'mas pressies!!

We had to redraw a few times, during the first draw, we literally drew our own names haha.. tells us about the odds. πŸ˜…

Alene picked Van's gift..

@paperkitties @tinklebells

Van picked the gift that I've prepared..

It's been a year since I last met this gal. But it doesn't feel to be that long all thanks to the connection we have over social media. πŸ˜…

No fun leh πŸ˜‚, my bday and x'mas gift both from my twin ha!


We were told to prepare one generic gift for the x'mas gift exchange.

Alene was the most generous as she brought along a gift for each of us. Haha 衚到, kidding! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜˜

I was Alene's secret Santa for her birthday gift.

This gal is glowing even more ever since her wedding. 幸福glow. So pretty as always.

Van suggested to use drawnames to pick our recipient.

I really sweat when I saw Alene's birthday wish. πŸ˜… Very challenging I must say haha.. hope that she likes what I got for her πŸ˜‰

Very interesting dessert! Very christmasty don't you think?

The sorbet is made of winter melon and guess what's in the black mochi. It's salted egg lava, damn nice!πŸ˜‹πŸ‘πŸ»

Attempted a flatlay of our X'mas pressies.. how is it? Nice? πŸ˜†

Finally a group pic for the Dec babies.

It was quite a impromptu meetup. The drawnames concept was rather new to all of us, so we made quite a big boo boo during the exchange. πŸ˜‚ but all in all, it was really fun!

Nad and Valene, let's have a bigger group next round! πŸ˜‰ Maybe we will call it a Aug & Dec babies getogether!

@whitechoco @nite_stars

And then home to pass my hubs his birthday pressies.

He said I must be home before midnight as I have to be the first person to wish him happy birthday at the stroke of midnight πŸ˜†
