It's Time To Get Ready For A Festive Fest This Christmas!

| |
Hi Huneybees,


The festive mood is in the air as we officially step into the month of December in anticipation to the joyous occasion of Christmas, which is just DAYS away!

With Orchard Road and most shopping malls already dressed up for the Yuletide season hence it is about time that we should start preparing for it, if you have not yet done so, like me. Ellenborough Market Café @ Swissotel Merchant Court Singapore has already set the festive mood going by having a Festive Feast since 3rd of December until 31st December 2018.

I really enjoyed the moist and tendinous taste of the Turkey meat prepared by Ellenborough Market Café @ Swissotel Merchant Court Singapore

The main attraction on the menu of the Festive Feast is certainly the Asian-inspired Turkey with Cranberry and "Kam Heong" Sauce.
Having tried it during the media preview a few days back, I must say I really enjoyed the moist and tendinous taste of the turkey meat so much that I actually requested for repeated serving of this awesome dish! It's a simply awesome dish that I can imagine having it any day!!
While Cranberry source is pretty common as a dressing for the de facto dish for Christmas, the introduction of Kam Heong sauce - literally means "golden fragrance" in English and is a product of the old strait statement Chinese-Malay creation - added an interestingly strong but familiar taste to the already yummy slice of meat that worth every chewing in my mouth.

The Honey Glazed Smoked Gammon Ham weights around 6kg and is enough for up to 30 serving! 

Also worth mentioning is the Honey Glazed Smoked Gammon Ham (Semi Bone-In), which in my opinion was well rolled and smoked to perfection. The look of it (as a whole), while editing this blogpost, has again tackled those taste bugs of mine!

Do try out these two amazing dishes amongst what the Festive Feast has to offer at Ellenborough Market Café@ Swissotel Merchant Court Singapore, which is available everyday until 31st December 2018 and priced at SGD58 (Adult), SGD29 (Child) from noon to 2:30pm and SGD78 (Adult), SGD39 (Child) from 6:30pm to 10pm.

Alternatively, Huneybees could also bring both home at the takeaway counter at Ellenborough Market Café@ Swissotel Merchant Court Singapore and enjoy some early bird promotion of 25% discount before 14th December 2018 and thereafter 18% discount before 21st December!
To avoid disappointment, I would suggest Huneybees to call 6239 1847/1848 or email dining.merchantcourt@swissotel.com to enquiry before placing your order.

Have a GREAT start to a new Pre-Christmas Shopping weekend!

We Are In Love With Domino's Pizza New Japanese Inspired Sugoi Menu

| |
Hi Huneybees,


It's such a wonder how many variations there can be done to a flat round dough. Yes, I'm talking about pizzas! No matter what your favourite toppings are, after this post, I bet all you can drool about is the latest Japanese inspired Domino's Pizza's menu.


Starting this November, Domino's Pizza introduces their new Sugoi Menu that comprises of 5 new menu items, 3 sides and 2 new pizzas flavour. All prepared with the Japanese fine attention to details and their well-loved Kushiyaki style of Japanese cooking, the sweet, savoury and smokey is just such a dance on the taste buds.

Sugoi Unagi Pizza with Cheesy Sesame Crust at $35.90 (regular)

Have you dreamt of having a Pizza with Unagi as a topping? It may seem like a crazy idea but I guarantee this special fusion of East Meets West will make you digging in for seconds and thirds... 


Domino's new Sugoi Unagi Pizza has roasted honey glazed eel slices slapped atop a bed of mushrooms, sprinkled with nori slices and paired with the specially made Sugoi sauce on the new Cheesy Sesame Crust. A mix of savoury with the sweet sauce brings out the fragrance of the parmesan cheese, black and white sesame seeds of the crust. I simply can't stop!

Sugoi Chicken Pizza with Cheesy Sesame Crust at $33.90 (regular)

Another new pizza on the menu is the Sugoi Chicken Pizza. It's a twist on the usual chicken pizza as the meat is prepared grilled Tori Yaki style and when paired with mushroom, pineapple slices, sweet cherry tomatoes, onions, nori strips, cheese and the special Sugoi sauce, the whole pizza flavour is elevated and one bite is as though a trip to Japan. This pizza is less sweet than the unagi one, so for fans who prefer something light, this might be a better choice.

Cheesy Crunchy Goma at $6.90 or $4.90 when paired with meal

Both the Sugoi Unagi Pizza and Sugoi Chicken Pizza goes well with the new Cheesy Sesame Crust. It can be a top-up to the other flavours at $6 for regular pizza and $8 for large pizza, but it also taste great as a bite on its own.

Which is why Domino's Pizza added the Cheesy Crunchy Goma flatbread to the menu too! It can be a nice snack to munch on or even be a dessert option. This crunchy bite has parmesan cheese, black and white sesame seeds sprinkled on the crust with a glaze of honey on top. It's not very sweet and I think it goes well with ice cream too!

Yakitori Chicken at $12.90 or $10.90 with any order
How can you miss yakitori when doing a Japanese menu? Domino's Pizza has created their own version of Yakitori Chicken, served on skewers. The sticky sweet and mildly spicy butterflied chicken wings are baked to perfection, keeping its own juiciness within the meat, bursting as I bit into the tender meat. Oh my god, my tummy is rumbling for it again ~~~

Toriniku Wings at $10.90 or $7.90 paired with any purchase.

Another chicken delight is the Toriniku Wings. It's not spicy and suits the kids with its sweet combination of wings and drummets baked with roasted garlic and generously glazed with honey rock sugar. I bet everyone will be licking on their fingers for more!


That's all for the new Domino'a Pizza Sugoi menu, but don't forget to end your meal with the Churros Choc Dip Duo. A warm crunchy bite dipped into the dark warm chocolate syrup within the Chocolate Lava Cake makes such a sweet way to end a perfect pizza feast!



To enjoy and soak into the Japanese feel, why not enjoy your pizza meals at their new Stanley Street branch. It is decorated as shown above for you to enjoy your "Japanese" feast, check it out if you are in the vicinity. "Irasshaimase!" (いらっしゃいませ!)

Looking For A Qool Weekend Escapade?

| |
Hi Huneybees,


It's that time of the year again, where friends and loved ones gather for a break from all the hard work and studies. If you are looking for just a staycation closer to home, why not check in yourselves into The Quincy Hotel?


With their newly revamped Qool Weekend Package, you are definitely in for a treat and get to let your hair down, spending quality time with your loved ones. We were treated to an interesting fashion show by the wonderful hospitality crew when they launched the package, to show us how much fun you can have at the hotel, be it for any occasion, at any time.


Available only on weekends for the hotel’s  Studio Deluxe rooms, the Qool Weekend package comes with a new array of delightful additions that goes beyond making a staycation memorable and exciting; making every effort to let the Qool Weekend experience be cool enough for guests who want to share on social media too.

I'm already sold at hello and hubby is planning for a weekend package there.
If you were to ask us what drew our attention to The Quincy Hotel? Here are why...


Studio Deluxe Rooms enhancement

My favourite has got to be the super adorable emoji cushions addition that not only brightens the room, but also adds another selfie excuse while chilling in the room.

Another is the Doodling Whiteboard where you can draw or doodle creative backgrounds for your Insta-pic or simply leave a sweet Thank-You for the lovely hotel staff.

Then for a touch of comfort, the Flossflakes Comfort-U Pillow on the bed cradles your entire body as you sleep, supporting every part of your body, letting you relax and go into your dreamlands.


For the connoiseurs, there is the Premium Tea Selection as well as the Nespresso Coffee Machine for those that need a morning pick-me-up or I-just-feel-like-caffeine moments. Pair that with the snacks from the Enhanced Complimentary In-room Minibar Selection (replenished daily) to satisfy your peckish cravings.


Art Jamming Sessions

If the doodling boards in the room are not enough, the package also includes Quincy Hotel's popular Couple's Art Jamming Sessions.

From 3pm to 4pm on Saturdays, with the guidance of an art teacher, up to six participants with no prior art background will be transformed into accomplished painters in under an hour!

Even if you were clueless that day, with the art teacher's accompaniment, you will be proud to bring home an artwork  you never thought you are capable of painting.



Collaboration with Kevin.Murphy

The Quincy Hotel is the first hotel in Asia to collaborate with Kevin.Murphy, one of Australia’s leading haircare brand that produces trendy and innovative products that are kind to the environment as well as being kind to the hair, Kevin Murphy is recognised amongst his peers as a visionary in the creation of modern, hairdressing products and tools.

Now, all guests can luxuriate in the innovation of Kevin.Murphy’s Young.Again series in their rooms. The Young.Again series features an explosion of scents from the most alluring flowers. This addictive fragrance blends top notes of crisp lemon with juicy orange and slivered coconut. A bouquet of petitgrain, orange flower, geranium, rose petals and jasmine blooms is enriched by sensual musk, creamy vanilla and rich red cedar.

Guests can also find other Kevin.Murphy Young.Again hotel collection such as gentle cleanser, hydrating body moisturiser and energising body bar soap in their rooms. They can soothe away the stress of travelling and help guests rejuvenate from head to toe daily during their stay at The Quincy Hotel.


Encouraging all guests to Be Me, Be Free and Be Delighted has been The Quincy Hotel’s way of making their guests feel right at home - even if it’s just a weekend staycation. Nothing expresses these brand pillars more creatively than the revamped Qool Weekend package. So, get your traveling bags ready for a weekend escapade!

MAMMA MIA! Is Not To Be Missed

| |
Hi Huneybees,


Remembering back then, it was the end of exams and us girls all gathered in the school's hall to watch the movie - Mamma Mia, to celebrate the end of school terms. We stashed all our textbooks aside and enjoyed the movie with lightened hearts. We fell in love with the idea of falling in love, getting swept off our feet and even the lovely friendship between the female lead - Donna, and her friends - wisecracking author Rosie Mulligan and wealthy multiple divorcée Tanya Chesham-Leigh. We even had the idea of growing old together and gathering in times of happiness, just like the characters!


"MAMMA MIA!" - a story about Love, Friendship and Ambitions, surrounding the beautiful tunes of the 70's iconic ABBA songs like "I Have A Dream", "Money, Money, Money", "Dancing Queen" and "Mamma Mia"; was actually based on a musical of same name back in 1999.


And now Singapore has the pleasure of catching the musical back on its second run, telling the story of Sophie as she prepares to get married at a young age of twenty, she decides she wants to know who her father is, and so invites the three potential men from her mother’s past through her diary to the wedding in the Greek islands, unbeknownst to her mother Donna. Being a jukebox musical, the characters break into a slew of ABBA’s best and most iconic songs.


This is one of the happiest, sunshine musical I've seen before, and it was so meaningful to have caught it with my BFF. The flamboyant costumes complete with platform boots wide-legged pants, and glitter, paired witha good mix of slapstick and sexual innuendos got us tickled pink and laughing through the night.

We walked out dancing and singing to the tunes, speaking of so much childhood memories. I bet girls, ladies of all ages would love this musical as much as us and even the guys too! It was definitely a first for me to see the audience dancing and singing to the tunes all the way till the curtain call "encores".


I'm happy that I finally caught this musical and soaked up some of the ABBA vibes with this feel good performance. So, do catch MAMMA MIA! before it ends this 18 November at Marina Bay Sands. You can get tickets here.

I'm gaming on this guy day and night, and I can definitely vouch for the long battery life.

With just a click, it is now possible for users to use the S Pen to take selfies and group pictures, present slides, pause and play videos, and more.

It features advanced noise reduction technology and a Dual Aperture lens, which adjusts to light just like the human eye. The Scene Optimizer function uses intelligence to identify elements of a photo and optimize it for the best shot while the Flaw Detection function alerts users of imperfections in their shot so they can take another picture without losing the moment. 
  • Premium Experiences - From Work to Play: The Infinity Display is the cornerstone of Samsung’s design heritage, and the Galaxy Note9 has the largest edge-to-edge display ever on a Note. The 6.4-inch Super AMOLED Infinity Display provides a truly immersive multimedia experience.

The GREAT MOSCOW CIRCUS Was Breathtaking

| |
Hi Huneybees,


Hold your breath as you step into the Red and White Big Top Tent next to Marina Bay Sands. It has been 10 years since The Great Moscow Circus was in town and now it has finally returned to Singapore and this time with more spectacular acts from more than 45 circus performers.

Although hubby and I have watched many circuses' acts over the years, we were still holding onto the edge of our seats throughout the show as we witnessed each act with excitement and astonishment. 



"The Catwall Trampoline" was the first act and a great starter to the show. Five performers (four guys and one lady) executed many stylish but synchronized moves in perfection on/in/out of an erected platform via two trampolines, one on each side. 

At some points during their performance, it seemed like the trampolines barely managed to prevent the performers from hitting the group by only a few inches before propelling the performers back to the platform! The end of the act was an amazing leg split landing on the platform by one of the male performers (ouch!).



Aerial silk is also one of those circuses' acts that we always enjoy watching. Under an intimate setting of dim lighting and shoulder to shoulder sitting, right in front of the circus ring, the sight of a well-toned body lifting a lengthy tall beauty effortlessly during "Flying high above the circus ring" act, mimicking the scene two lovebirds flying freely in the sky, was simply breathtaking for us but also gasping at the same time for the safety of the two aerialists as they flew back and forth by just a long fabric and without any safety arrest system underneath. 



No circus is complete without some form of death-defying acts and The Great Moscow Circus is no different. However, The Great Moscow Circus takes acts like Space Wheel or The Giant Wheel and the Globe of Death, which are no strangers to circus audience, a step further by pushing the limits of these acts that we thought was already unbelievable!

Normally performed by a group of 2 performers, "The Giant Wheel" by The Great Moscow Circus was instead performed by two teams of two daredevils carrying out synchronized acrobatic running inside and outside two large rotating apparatus. Oh, our dear hearts were at gripping ends...



"The Globe of Deathby The Great Moscow Circus, on the other hand, normally involving three stunt riders, has four (4) motorcycles riding at an insane pace and directions inside a small mesh sphere ball that barely fits two riders.



All in all there were a total of 15 acts performed, we both agreed that our favourite was none other than the Contortionist - Emin AbdullaevAppearing in a small glass tank, I was first shocked to discover a head inside. But that was only the beginning, as he slowly "unfolds" himself and reveal his muscular physique out, the whole time I was squealing. His great performance has had again reminded me of how amazing we could do with our own body!


 

The Great Moscow Circus is certainly entertaining and raw. By raw, I meant you get to see how each apparatus is actually set up in-between the acts by the very performers who are going to use them. All the apparatus are taken down and set up with speed and care while the Ringmaster and his Russian Clowns act as covers to take attention off the preparation by amusing the audience with often silly acts. 

It is because of this intimacy between the acts and the audience that makes The Great Moscow Circus so famous and it is worth the extra money to pay for the VIP or Premium seats in the house to fully enjoy the best views of all these breathtaking acts.




The Great Moscow Circus is located right beside Marina Bay Sands. 
Don’t miss the circus of a lifetime!

Tuesday to Friday: 7:30pm
