I haven’t been going out as much as in 2012, which means more time to document the times when I did! I had friends visit from Dubai and London the other week, and such special occasions call for my special attention. So excited to see A&Z, and welcome Nel into my city! I’m a bonafide tour guide, showing off the best Singapore has got, and in these two nights, I pied pipe-red my friends down and around my favourite nightspots.
TIME TO GET SILLY IN SINGAPORE –
FRIDAY: Dinner at Brussels Sprouts Robertson Quay, Drinks at EM by the River, Dancing at Kudeta Marina Bay Sands
I’m not a big fan of mussels, but if you like that sort of thing, Brussels Sprouts (they have a few locations) is pretty popular. I settled for steak, and kept myself happy with the company. EM by the River within Robertson Quay is an easy stroll away, and their alfresco setting is nice enough for multi-purpose catch ups. The drinks are nothing spectacular, but they do have special deals at certain hours.
Managed to convince my friends to come along to Kudeta Singapore – Now we’re talking. That’s more like it!
SATURDAY: Dinner at Yazawa Robertson Quay, Drinks at Lantern rooftop of Fullerton Bay Hotel, Dancing at Pangaea Singapore
The meat at Yazawa Japanese restaurant (Robertson Quay) was excellent, and I would do it all over again! The boys were kind enough to grill the first round of food for us, but we harassed the service staff afterwards to help out. How patient and service-oriented of them! The only self-service we were doing was cleaning up bottles of wine and sippin’ on teacups of sake.
We were the last customers out of their restaurant but I don’t think they hated us… How could they?
I made my few calls as the evening’s Entertainment Director… and it was up and away on the rooftop of Fullerton Bay. I don’t know if I will ever get tired of showing off these splendid sights of the night – it’s always a nice time at my usual haunt, Lantern. (Try to book a table in advance if you plan to drop by for drinks – they can get pretty busy after office hours and on Friday/Saturday nights.)
Let me halt halfway through this blogpost with a warning: I think a pillowfight themed party in a nightclub is a terrible idea, but everyone else seemed to disagree…
So sit back, relax, and laugh at my friends – as everyone gets mouthfuls of flying feathers stuck in their bodies. Watch us wreck countless glasses of champagne, and act like we’re thirteen!
The girls are so beautiful it’s a thrilling tease, and the dresscode is close to none – come as casual as you please. Break out your best pyjamas and prepare to partay like its 1990!
“So, what’s a pillowfight like?” You’ve probably always wanted to see one. It’s kind of like snowing, but really more annoying. Feathers get into your throat, your eyes, and usually also your underwear. You might not find a feather here, but you will surely find a feather later over there! (Surprise!)
Mmm… not so tasty.
Girls of a feather flock together. Girls also flock together because of feathers.
We are desperately trying to break open this pillow… it’s like a really bad film in the making! Guess who wins in this dramatic end?
GIRLS 1: PILLOW 0!
Be free my pillow, be free!
The monthly themed parties at VIP lounge Pangaea are always as exclusive as they are a hoot.
