Valentines Day may just be behind us, but that’s no reason for you to stop being romantic in your relationship, right? Well, so even though this post didn’t come in time for Valentines Day 2015 unlike my previous post, you can no doubt still use these ideas & tips for your love one’s birthday, special anniversary day or #monthsary! 😉
1. Bond Over Good Food at So Sofitel
I personally believe that good food is essential in a relationship. Everyone needs to eat and humans bond over food. So what better way to express your love for your partner then to bring him/her to a special dinner? So Sofitel’s Resident Culinary Designer Anne-Cecile Degenne impressed both our palate and eyes at the 3 course (pre) Valentines Day Dinner media tasting. I was surprised with the fresh crab meat paired with the refreshing cucumber and ginger sorbet. I would love to have the sorbet again! The grilled beef tenderloin was excellent too, cooked just nice and tender. While I would usually have trouble chewing on steaks which are cooked too dry & tough, this steak wasn’t an issue at all. We were all impressed with the sharing dessert which came in a decadent chocolate and raspberry combination and of course I couldn’t resist a photo with it, hehe. Visit their site here or call for more information and bookings.
If your partner and you are Spa lovers, why not complete the date with a therapeutic getaway at So SPA by Sofitel’s in Sentosa? With it, you and your sweetheart can enjoy a 2+hours long session with Neem Body Polish, Bath for 2, So Abhyanga Massage at their Private Couple Spa Suite with complimentary champagne & canepe, full Usage of the outdoor spa gardens, mud pool and more at $528++ per couple. This promotion is valid until 28 Feb 2015. You can call & reserve via (65) 6371 1288.
2. Fall Sweeter In Love with Mad About Sucre Cakes
As a general rule, girls like sweet things; chocolates, ice cream, cakes, oh yes, cakes. There’s just something special about sweet, soft cakes. My friends over at Mad About Sucre have recently opened their cakery at 27 Teo Hong Road (walking distance from Outram MRT) and their cakes are sophisticated and a delight to our palates. I am particularly in love with their Burnt Caramel topped with Himalayan Salt Cake which is soft, sweet and simply amazing. My next favourite is their Passion Fruit Cheese Cake which is sweet, citrusy with a tinge of cheese. Chocolate lovers can find delight in their Red Cherry & Mexican Cocoa Cake as well as their decadent Rum infused Chocolate & Banana Cake. Enjoy a cake and a tea or coffee here, let the sweet tastes of the cake mingle in your mouth and linger on through the night. Or if you’re feeling adventurous, you might also fancy their Lemon & Coconut Tart. Priced at $9.80-$11.80, visit them after your dinner date as they’re open from 12.30-10.30pm, Mondays off.
3. Capture the Memories with Sony’s Selfie Cam DSC-KW11
Time flies, you and I know this well. There’s perhaps little more thoughtful then to capture and compile beautiful memories into scrapbooks or keepsakes for your special someone. With Sony’s Cyber-shotTM DSC-KW11 digital still camera, aka Selfie Cam KW11, you can capture these sweet memories on the go without having to photoshop (heh) and you can also easily transfer the photos to your mobile and share them to your social media platforms! Check out these photos I took while at their recent media launch event held at Goodwood Park’s Rose Marie Suite. The group shots aka #groupfies are the ones taken by the KW11, no editing required! 😉 The Cyber-shotTM DSC-KW11 is available at all Sony Stores, Sony Centres, and selected Sony authorised dealers at a recommended price of $999.
That’s the end of my post, now you’re all set for a sweet date, good luck! :*
