Sipping Authentic Singapore Sling on Singapore Flyer

| |
Hi Huneybees,


Last week, Valentine and I, as well as some other bloggers were invited up on the Singapore Flyer capsule to learn how to make our very own Singapore Sling with the authentic receipe, while "sipping" up the beautiful night view of Marina Bay.

Hehehehe. Choose from 4 designs of the Singapore Flyer ticket.
 History of Singapore Sling


Mr Ngiam Tong Boon (Credits to http://www.sammyboy.com/index.php)
Synonymous to Singapore and one of the nation's best-known cocktails, Singapore Sling was originally developed in 1915 by Ngiam Tong Boon, a Hainanese bartender. Since then, the original 1915 recipe of the Singapore sling, using gin, cherry brandy, fresh pineapple juice and other ingredients, endorsed by Mr Ngiam is kept by Association of Bartenders & Sommeliers Singapore (ABSS) and can now you can find it at the Flyer Lounge.

This is the special themed sky bar capsule
Enjoy Singapore's favourite cocktail on the iconic wheel

At S$69 nett per individual, guests get to enjoy a 30-minute treat in a special-themed capsule while enjoying the nation's all-time classic cocktail, the Singapore Sling.

Possibly the most perfect version of the Singapore Sling - after years of tasting and experimenting by the association - taste how this cocktail stunner is carefully mixed and freshly hand-shaken to perfection onboard the Flyer's Singapore Sling flight. While confortably nestled in your sky bar capsule, the iconic drink complements the charming views of Singapore's cityscape as you ascend to the top. Similar to how the drink is synonymous to being the nation's cocktail; see how Singapore flyer is an icon of Singapore as it offers you a bird's eye view of a once kampong fishing village, transcending in time to a modern cosmopolitan city.

Capsule so beautiful! I wana stay here all night already.
We were given a demonstration on how to do the Singapore Sling, before we proceeded to make our own versions. Singapore Sling is very fruity and you hardly taste the alcohol...

Introducing Alice who has been a bartender for years.
The drinks for Singapore Sling.




Yipee! My turn to mix! Huney the Bartender is up!


Success and enjoying my very own Singapore Sling...
Thank you Alice for coaching me. :)

And definitely thank you to Valentine for sharing the moment with me. 


I mentioned sipping Singapore Sling with the wonderful night view, how can I miss that?!

[Get The Look] China Glaze Magnetix

| |
Hi Huneybees,

Courtesy of China Glaze
There's been so much talk about magnetica nail polish, many popular nail poish brands has it and Huney got her China Glaze version as not only are the colours beautiful, with the magnet, you can have 3 designs easily done instead of just 1!


There are 6 colours to choose from and I got 4 (highlighted).




  • You Move Me - golden metallic
  • Cling On - green metallic
  • Pull Me Close - crystal blue metallic
  • Instant Chemistry - metallic berry
  • Drawn To You - subtle metallic lilac
  • Attraction - metallic chrome


  • From Left: Pull Me Close, Attraction, Cling On, Drawn To You.
     In each metallic nail polish, there's tiny metal pigments which can be easily manipulated and sculpted with the help of this magical magnet. 



    Simply hold the magnet right above your nails and the small particles will start to move in a way that they'll be able to form a fabulous pattern like the ones illustrated above.One trick is to make sure where is the center of the sunburst design as well as the arrowhead design.




    Here are the photos...

    Pull Me Close
    Attraction
    Cling On
    Drawn To You
    Do share if you guys bought the nail polishes too ya?

    Hi Beautiful readers of Colour Huney,

    Due to my negligence, I've realized super lots of blog posts were missing.
    I scheduled them to be posted but apparently they did not, technical glitch or not, I think I've kinda resolved it. So, bear with me as I will be blasting blog posts these few days.
    Don't worry, they are all wonderful products and videos not to be missed.

    Stay tuned!


    XOXO,
    Christina aka Huney

    | |
    Hi Huneybees,


    Remember I wrote about the all new Kiehl's Dermatologist Solutions Clearly Corrective White? I've been religiously using the routine and I definitely found "light" in my skin! My face is now all so smooth and is definitely fairer than I started using and my friends have been asking if I went to do some cosmetic surgery, laser or chemical peel. *Hehehehehe! I literally photoshopped myself in real life!*

    This is the range I've been "depending" on.
     You won't believe me until you see this video I made. I take a picture of myself everyday for 2 weeks (I swear there's no photoshop play in this) and see this "tranformation" for yourself.




    Thank you Kiehl's!
    Have you gotten your samples for the Kiehl's Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution yet? Do you like it? Don't forget to write a review for it too. For those who havn't, why not?  Go to this link to go find out how you can get it! You can stand a chance to win a $200 product hamper weekly! Hurry! It's till 31st March only...

    Woohoo! Camwhoring after realizing how easy and effortless makeup can be! I don't event have to conceal anything!!

    The Icing Room’s Delicious High Tea Indulgence Menu

    | |
    Hi Huneybees,


    *Before you procceed on reading, let me warn you that this post will make you drool after reading and that's what's happening to me now - writing the blog post my tummy growls for some dessert after dinner!



    Are you guys ready to entice your taste buds with a delectable selection of Heavenly Creations from The Icing Room's High Tea Indulgence Menu? I was so happy to be invited down to 313@Somerset for a Media Tasting and now I'm introducing the all-so yummy desserts to you guys!


    The Icing Room introduced their dreamy additions for an afternoon delight for you and your friends, family and loved ones. Exclusively available at The Icing Room at 313@somerset and Junction 8, these desserts are perfect for those who fancy sitting down to a session of pampering the taste buds.



    Sushi looking cakes!
    The Icing Room has always been known to be selling sweet desserts and famous for the personalised D.I.Y. cakes. 






     
    From gloriously luxurious macarons to special creations of dessert shooters, behold and embrace a
    selection of mouth-watering delights created by The Icing Room’s pastry chefs.
     

     DECOR OF THE ICING ROOM (DINING IN AREA OF 313@SOMERSET)

     


       



    HIGH TEA INDULGENCE MENU

    Double Chocolate Cake with Vanilla Ice Cream. Ice cream on top of a hot chocolate cake is definitely my to-die-for dessert!
    Brownie with Chocolate Ice Cream.
     This year, the menu introduces a boon to chocolate lovers such as the Double Chocolate Cake with Vanilla Ice Cream ($6.80) and Brownie with Chocolate Ice Cream ($4.20). These
    offerings are baked to perfection with the finest ingredients and will satisfy the most intense of
    chocolate cravings.

    Who can resist a Crème Brulee? I love the sugar coating on top and this time instead of just a small cup, you get it in a plate almost triple what you can find out there! Sweet right?!

    A magnificent sweet indulgence such as the Crème Brulee with Berries ($4.80) is a classic
    must-have dish that is served in gratifying portions to satisfy the hankerings of the sweet tooth.
    Laced with the juiciest of berries and flamed to meticulous perfection of golden caramelization,
    this dessert is a perennial favourite to relish. 


    Adding on to the new menu is the iconic Ice Cream Cookie Puff with Pistachio ($3.80). A nutty accent of rich pistachio complements the mouth-play of textures as creamy ice-cream is tucked into crisp fluffy cookie puffs adding pleasurable sweetness to any tea-time session.

    Top: Cherry Crumble and Lemon Cream Crumble
    Bottom: Mixed Berries Crumble


    With a playful twist and a careful blend of intricate flavours, selections from the Ice Cream on
    the Rocks assortment are lip-smacking delights that bring a gratifying interplay of textures. One
    can choose between Cherry, Lemon Cream or Mixed Berries Crumble ($3.50) freshly baked
    in the kitchens of The Icing Room and pair it with smooth vanilla, chocolate or strawberry ice
    cream. So good, licking remaining smears is an assured end-note.


    I had the Lemon Cream Crumble. I love how big and chunky the crumbles are, you can totally much them on their own or just sink your teeth into the ice cream with their specially made Lemon Cream. I say give me 10 of these and it's still not enough!


    Accept nothing but luscious silky goodness with each decadent mouthful of dessert shooters
    from The Icing Room. With a harmonious pairing of velvety custard base and chunks of fresh
    fruit toppings, this enchanting treat packaged in petite shot glasses are refreshingly luscious treats of choice. One can choose among the Blueberry Panna Cotta, Strawberry Panna Cotta and Peach Panna Cotta ($3.50) to enjoy.

    Blueberry Panna Cotta, Strawberry Kirsch Jelly and Lychee Jelly.
    Panna Cotta's my thing, it's milky, it's creamy and with the blueberry on top, it makes it less sinful and definitely more refreshing on your palette. As for the Jelly's, other ladies at the table were loving it as they said it's light, cooling for a warm day, and also less sinful. I can see it as the ladies top favourite already.


    Perfect for those with a penchant for saccharine crystal pleasures, the Strawberry Kirsch Jelly
    and Lychee Jelly ($3.50) shooters are irresistible treats.


     

    The Macaron Ispahan ($3.50) is crowned with an enchanting macaron and deliciously paired with silky custard and strawberry infused jelly.


    HIGH TEA INDULGENCE SET PROMOTIONS


    The Icing Room presents three indulgence sets for a variety of choices during high tea
    sessions. A range of delightful macarons, cookie puffs, sliced cakes, muffins, dessert shooters,
    coffee and tea are available for customers to choose from.


    PROMOTIONAL SETS:
    • Indulgence Set A ($13.80) Comes with a cookie puff, two macarons, cheese bar, choice of sliced cake with coffee or tea
