Here’s what I wore:
An understated black dress that I really like but seldom got the chance to wear it. Very cheap also, really.
He picked me up after work (he even took half day off for this!) and we went to the CBD area.
Walking along the busy streets, there were many girls and guys flaunting the bouquet of flowers in their hands. For me, there really was no need for flowers, it’s insane to pay 3x more for them and will only last about what, 4 days? It’s stupid. I’m already grateful that he remembered and the extra effort he put in to make me feel special. 🙂
That said, on any days if he wanna get me flowers (my favourite type of course), I’ll be pleased. Haha.
We went to a place with a breathtaking view like this:
He brought me to Stellar at 1-Altitude, an atas restaurant located at the tallest building in Singapore. A reservation was made and we later managed to get a table by the window.
View from our table:
There was no V-day menu during lunch, so we ordered the standard 3-course set lunch. The menu states S$38++, each set inclusive of a cup of coffee/tea, which we didn’t get in the end hor, by the way.
Starter for me:
We both topped up $8 each for the Tuna sashimi, no regrets! BEST TUNA SASHIMI EVERRRRRRRR. Actually, we enjoyed the sushi set completely too lah. Super yummy.
We had bread and butter served with vinaigrette sauce, and Fiji (still water) at S$10/bottle. *gulps*
For mains, I chose the Porcini and Mascarpone Risotto with Fermin Jamon Iberico. My risotto was flavourful and delicious, but smells a bit like my dog food.
He had Braised WagYu Beef Cheek with Buttered Baby Carrots and Rosemary Sauce. The meat is juicy and tender, it melts instantly in you mouth!
Both dishes are best served hot, because after it got cold, it was a little thick and gelat, you’ll eventually get sick of it.
Our dessert (I forgot the names!):
After lunch, we headed up to the roof (Gallery & Bar) to take a look. The weather was mad hot. Somebody had to escort us up there, so we didn’t stay for long.
I also really liked how he carefully picked his outfit (floral prints!), he usually wears cartoon tees and berms from Bangkok mind you.
He even gelled his hair. Lol.
The bill came up to more than what we had expected, at about S$60+ per person. The food was great, but the service kinda sucked.
And also, the advertised V-Day Dinner Menu starts at S$160 (non-window) and S$190 (window) per person, can you imagine what the final bill will be?! I’m guessing between S$400 – S$550.
For the rest of the day, we just ran errands and hung around at *Scape, waving at The Muttons, having Yu Sheng for dinner at Sakae Sushi and I Am Number Four movie premiere at The Cathay.
QQ celebrated her Valentine’s day with treats and a present from me:
My Valentine’s Day gift came in the form of an Amy Winehouse – Fred Perry collaboration buttoned top. Thank you <3! He made me feel so guilty for not preparing anything at all.
This is my best Valentine’s Day. I love you all the same Sanyu, just like any other day. 🙂
