Babies... and food?

heh. ran out of blog title ideas.
just... accept whatever cuteness my nieces are gonna give you along with all the food shown :D
had 2 back to back family gatherings over 2 weekends and it was great to spend time with my loved ones.
especially the 2 new additions - Chloe and Eliza - my cousins' daughters.
here you'll see dear Eliza who is barely 6 months old.
the bf calls her a rocker because she has super stylo mylo hair please - like a rockstar! it's au natural by the way.

Auntie Chris, Eliza and me!

I didn't dare to carry her because she seemed so fragile so let all the aunties carry her instead since they're more 'seasoned' people - look at all of us all grown up already haha!

Cutie pie with all her adorable expressions! Did I mention she looks exactly like her father at birth but now that I see, her eyes resemble her mother my cousin LOL.

Oh and I finally caved in and bought Ladurée macarons!

Takashimaya Shopping Centre, #02-09 and Level 1

I bought the Singapore only box of 8 macarons for $38SGD.
I used to think Antionette's macarons were expensive but Ladurée's beats it hands down honestly.
And the taste-wise? mehhhhhhh. Not impressed.
I was quite amazed at how many people were buying the macarons in boxes of 30 and what not.
How can people spend so much on... flour? >_<
But then again, each to their own tastes I suppose.
Here's my lunch last week before the May day public holiday at Coffee Bean.

Salmon Brioche Egg Ben $11.90 with drink
Quite yummy! Their menu is quite extensive but I tried their risotto today and it was blah. Sticking to this in future!

met up with Laura, Maisie and Sinhui the day after Labour Day for dinner and to basically just catch up.
we had Poulet at Bugis+

201 Victoria Street
Level 4 Bugis+, Singapore
Opening hours: 11.30am – 9.30pm

Mushroom and French Onion soup which were heavenly! Altho the rest preferred the mushroom soup over the French Onion one. We ordered to share.

Iced Lemonade for all of us because Poulet doesn't serve iced water :( You have to pay. Boo.

Prawn Fritters.. which Maisie complained that it was just frozen tempura. Sad to say, a waste of our $7.80.

Signature dish.. Poulet Roti ($15.80 half/$28.80 whole)

For the 4 of us, we ordered 2 whole chickens to share and... disappointed D:
why weren't there any sides? :(
sad to say we didn't really enjoy the meal much and it really wasn't worth the 20 minute queue.
but oh wells, at least we know now! :D *think positive*

Our dessert at Swensen's afterwards. I shared this with Sinhui.

Lunch on Friday at the Indonesian restaurant at Changi City Point with my colleagues.

Strawberry Tart from Tiong Bahru Bakery

Apple Crumble from Tiong Bahru Bakery
so yums I tell you! If only this was served warm and with ice cream... :P

And last Saturday was Chloe's birthday party at a stable my cousin rented.
We got lost and only ended up there in time to take pictures with the cake before it was served LOL.
I didn't ride the horses even though we could because... animals and I just don't go well together.
When the bf sent the pic to his friends, someone comment "wah go see Sarah Jessica Parker bo jio"
anw it took me quite some courage to take the picture cos.. for a moment I freaked out when the horse moved ;__;

And... the birthday girl! Chloe :)

see I told you this entry would be nothing but food and babies hahaha.
Happy birthday little niece!
May you have blessed days ahead :)
Please let Aunty Paula carry you in future without you throwing a fit tyvm HAHAHA.
leaving you guys with a pic of my yummy Ippudo ramen.
