A Jolly Seafood Fare: Fish & Co.

Just the other day, I received this really special delivery from Fish & Co.

fishnco9

 

Why, of course I would want to bring my family for a Christmas meal at Fish & Co.

After all, my girls LOVE Fish & Co. and get so excited at the mere mention of having lunch or dinner there!

And come on, just look at their Christmas specials!

 

fishncoxmas

 

I love trying out anything that is available for a limited time period only because I know that it is often a now or never kind of situation.

So we arranged to have lunch at their newly opened Bugis+ outlet right after our Treasure Island play.

 

fishnco8

 

(Their Bugis+ branch is soooooooo beautiful, by the way! A birthday party there will be wicked! Heheh.)

 

First up, our drinks. 

 

fishnco2

 

Blue Dream, Jazz Me-Up and Double Yellow Line for us!

Mysha and I especially loved the Jazz Me-Up because it has a fine mixture of sweet and sour! Really refreshing to the max, if you ask me.

 

Grilled White Fish with Ebiko

 

fishnco5

OH MY GOODNESS, THIS ONE IS REALLY REALLY REAAAAAAALLLY NICE!

What is it basically?

It is Grilled White Fish baked with ebiko roe and mozzarella cheese. We like how the fish is not too cheesy or rich. It’s almost like not eating cheese at all.

We might just substitute the usual Fish &  Chips with this instead for our future Fish & Co. visits, if they have plans to retain this one!

Shrimp & Clam Aglio Olio

 

fishnco4

 

If you are an Aglio Olio lover like me, you will definitely like this one too.

And at long last…

We got to feast on this luxurious pot of Seafood goodness! 

fishnco3

 

It is like dipping yourself into a cream mushroom ocean of prawns, clams, mussels, scallops, fish!

REALLY, REALLY GOOD AND SUCH A SATISFYING MEAL!

And how can we leave Fish & Co without their famous Hot Fudge cake?

 

fishnco6

 

Thank you Fish & Co. for yet another satisfying meal!

And thank you so much to The Good Folks for making this possible. 🙂

If you would like to try out their Jolly Seafood Fare, you can do so till 3 January 2016!

Kids Rule @ Fish & Co.

My lovely twins turned seven yesterday!

My intention was to surprise them. One of the surprises was the staycation at D’Resort Downtown East a day before their birthday. (You can read my daily updates via my Facebook: Diah Mastura Roslan) If that was not enough, I planned another surprise for them on their birthday. I thought it would be nice to have simple celebration with them first while waiting for the actual celebration this weekend, together with the big family.

It was supposed to be just lunch at their favourite family chain restaurant…

Fish & Co.

FC14

Well, I know for certain that it would make them so happy to know that we would be having lunch at Fish & Co. because each time we go out and I ask them to suggest a place to dine at, they will ALWAYS suggest Fish & Co. But of course, we cannot possibly be dining at Fish & Co. every single day, can we?

So yeah, girls chose their favourite from the KIDS MEAL!

FC5

CAPTAIN HOOK, BUT OF COURSE!

FC21

I asked them to look at the menu, but they still told me they wanted Captain Hook.

LOL THEY ARE HOOKED, ALRIGHT.

 

FC1

So now they are big enough to order their own food, huh?

FC3

And as usual, they begged me for the soup of the day.

THEY SIMPLY LOVE THE CHOWDER SOUP AT FISH & CO.

Me too, actually, I think they have the best chowder soup. 

You know, I really love ordering the Kids Meal for the girls. Besides not having to worry that the portion will be too big for them, I like what comes together with the meal.

At just $8.95, every Kids Meal comes with:

  • 1 choice of side order
  • 1 choice of drink
  • 1 choice of dessert

PLUS ALL OF THE BELOW!

FC13

FC2

But wait, now that Children’s Day is coming, perhaps I should also let you know that…

all kids will eat for free at Fish & Co. on 9th October 2015!

FC19

YES, EVERY KIDS MEAL WILL BE FREE WITH EVERY ALA CARTE MAIN COURSE PURCHASED!

JUST LOOK AT THE CHOICES AVAILABLE FOR THE KIDS!

FC25

It’s only fair. Parents, you cannot possibly expect to eat for free on Children’s Day, right?

So just take a wefie and move on.

FC4

Okay so we took another wefie before moving on.

FC15

My fellow adults and those young at heart (only), you know you too have so many choices to choose from, right?

I ordered this for myself yesterday!

Seafood Platter for 1

It is so nice to know that the whole platter set is really just for you, isn’t it? Sometimes, it can be quite a heart pain to share something so nice.  LOL.

FC7

Tatek ordered the usual!

 Stingray with Black Pepper Sauce

You need to try this if you have yet to. Just imagine the soft and succulent flesh dripping with black pepper sauce. Whenever Tatek eats this, he will always forget to ask me whether I want some. Same thing happened yesterday. Not too sure whether he does it on purpose all the time.

FC9

Oh for starters, we had the Buffalo Drumlets!

FC8

Need you ask whether we enjoyed our lunch?

IT WAS SUPERB AS USUAL!

Once we were done with lunch, the awesome bunch from Fish & Co. surprised the girls with a birthday song and a hot fudge cake each!

FC24

THANK YOU SO MUCH, YOU GUYS! 

FC23

(Can we have every birthday celebration at Fish & Co. please? LOL)

FC18

Hope you enjoyed your birthday celebration, Mysha and Myreen!

Hope you will continue to be each other’s best friend.

FC6

And Kakak’s best friends too lah okay. (Otherwise, she would be all alone.)

FC12

I LOVE YOU GIRLS SO VERY MUCH.

Jubilee at the Botanic Coverage (31 May)

Last weekend, I brought my daughters, husband and parents to watch Temasek presents Jubilee at the Botanics and have a picnic at the same time.

YAY TO QUALITY FAMILY TIME!

Definitely a great way to kick start the June holidays, I must say.

temsek9

If you must know, it was our first time watching an orchestra performance. That said, we were really excited and eager right from the beginning because we did not know what to expect.

temsek1

(Picture from Temasek’s Facebook Page)

Jubilee at the Botanics aims to bring together friends and loved ones to share their love for music besides celebrating SG50 together with the community.

temsek8

The Singapore Symphony Orchestra put on such a breathtaking full hour performance, I must say! 

YES, I REALLY DO MEAN BREATHTAKING.

 

We were especially mesmerized by the enchanting voice of Amni Musfirah who was accompanied by the Singapore Symphony Orchestra. I could actually sing along to most of the tunes in particular, “Count on Me Singapore”, “I Dreamed a Dream”, “Somewhere”, “Memory and “Home”!

temsek4

(Picture from Temasek’s Facebook Page)

THEY SHOULD INVITE ME TO THE STAGE TO SING WITH THEM, MAN!

Then, you too would be mesmerized by my voice.

LOL.

I was pleased to see how my three girls also enjoyed themselves. They were actually just enjoying the music throughout.

They even got to meet the very good looking host of the event, Nathan Hartono before the show started.

temsek7

Cheeky girls walking away from Nathan.

temsek10

Right after we were done, Sharleez told me this,

“Mummy, it was a nice concert. The girl could sing so well and her voice is like a Disney princess. I am going to write this in my journal and tell my teacher all about it when school reopens.”

Oh, did I mention that we were seated right behind the PM of Singapore?

That was such a pleasant surprise, I would say.

Mysha even managed to take a selfie with our PM, without him realising it of course.

LOL.

temsek11

I am definitely looking forward to the next outdoor concert.

This ongoing initiative by Temasek is definitely a very meaningful way to usher the community together in rediscovering one’s love for great music”.

I mean, look at the crowd!

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………

 

SYAWAL RENOVATION FAIR. 

THAT’S RIGHT!

 

Icon Interior Design will be having their Syawal Renovation Fair with lots of green packets to give away this time round!

HARI RAYA, MAH?

syawal-2

 

NOT ENOUGH.

 

LET ME REVEAL THE TEN GREEN PACKETS YOU STAND TO RECEIVE WHEN YOU SIGN UP WITH THEM!

123-1

 

YES TEN!

(I managed to coerce the boss of Icon Interior Design into giving more this time round!)

DO NOT FORGET TO THANK ME ONCE YOU RECEIVE YOUR GREEN PACKETS, OKAY? 😀

 

GREEN PACKET #1: IN YOUR FACE!

Show Icon Interior Design the following photo of mine, give them a few seconds to roll their eyes in disgust, and then enjoy SGD100 OFF your total renovation cost.

( Seriously, is my face only worth $100 off? Damn.)

 syawal-4

 

Anyway.

SHOW THEM MY $100 FACE!

SHOW THEM!

SHOW THEM!

And only by showing my face above will you also get to enjoy the REMAINING NINE GREEN PACKETS.

 

GREEN PACKET #2: DIP IT LOW!

For every SGD10,000 sign up with Icon Interior Design, you will be entitled to a Lucky Dip in which you will DEFINITELY WIN A SGD50 VOUCHER/GIFT CARD FROM either:

 

  1. IKEA

 

  1. COURTS

 

  1. CAPITALAND

 

This also means that if your total sign up is worth $40,000, you will get to enjoy the Lucky Dip four times! Say, if your sign up is worth SGD38000, might as well round it off to $40,000 in order to get four of the $50 vouchers. I mean, you can always review and revise your contract once renovation commences. Just a tip, but please do not tell them I told you. LOL.

 

GREEN PACKET #3: TIME TO GET LUCKY!

If you sign up during the Syawal Renovation Fair AND get your renovation done in time for Season 3 of #IconHomeProject, you will be eligible for their LUCKY DRAW as well!

 

1st prize: SGD500 CASH

2nd prize: SGD300 CASH

3rd prize: SGD200 CASH

 

I will announce the lucky winners when I announce the winners for #IconHomeProject Season 3!

 

GREEN PACKET #4: SHIOK AH!

Just by showing up at the Syawal Renovation Fair, Icon Interior Design will give you a bottle of SuperShiok Sambal as their doorgift!

Then, you can break fast with the SuperShiok Sambal and get addicted to it.

 

GREEN PACKET #5: Time to BLUM!

RECEIVE FREE UPGRADE TO BLUM SYSTEM WORTH $200

All you need to do to enjoy the FREE UPGRADE will be the following:

  1. Take a selfie of yourself (with or without the ID) during the Syawal Renovation Fair at Icon Interior Design with a caption “WE SIGNED UP WITH ICON INTERIOR DESIGN!”
  2. Share the photo in your own Facebook post and tag me (Diah Mastura Roslan)
  3. LIKE ICON INTERIOR DESIGN FB PAGE!

 

GREEN PACKET #6: Not a crackPOT!

For every sign up with Icon Interior Design, you will receive a branded stainless steel cookware set! I have these pots too and my parents so loving them! I love it when I score brownie points with my parents because that just means they will cook even more good food for me!

If you do not need the cookware set, you can skip Green Packet #6 and proceed to Green Packet #7!

syawal-5

 

GREEN PACKET #7: Born with a silver spoon!

Besides the branded cookware set, you can opt for a branded stainless steel cutlery set instead, just by signing up with Icon Interior Design during the Syawal Renovation Fair! I have them too! HAHA! Everything also I want!

syawal-7

 

BE WARNED GUYS, THEY ARE LEFT WITH ONLY A FEW OF THE COOKWARE AND CUTLERY SETS. SO FIRST TO SIGN, FIRST TO RECEIVE. WHILE STOCKS LAST.

I ACTUALLY WANTED TO BRING HOME MORE BUT THEY WERE LIKE,

“OI! ENOUGH LAH! LATER NOT ENOUGH FOR THE CUSTOMERS WHO SIGN UP.”

 

GREEN PACKET #8: What a great idea!

You will receive a complimentary booklet, which is a compilation of some of the most awesome projects done by Icon Interior Design this far.

syawal-8

 Terms and conditions apply.

 

GREEN PACKET #10: Your turn to shine!

LASTLY,

YOU WILL QUALIFY FOR THE FINAL SEASON OF #ICONHOMEPROJECT! 

If you mention you come from Etrangle and sign up during the Syawal Fair, you are automatically one of the contestants for #IconHomeProject Season Final Season, provided you get your renovation done in time for Season 3 of the challenge. If you intend to only renovate your house next year, then too bad so sad. LOL. Other than that, you will still get to enjoy the rest of the green packets mentioned in this post.

What are the prizes that await you this time round for #IconHomeProject Season 3, once again? Better than Seasons 1 and 2, of course.

—————————————————————————-

FIRST PRIZE:

SGD 2000 electrical appliances voucher

 

SECOND PRIZE:

SGD 1500 electrical appliances voucher

 

THIRD PRIZE:

SGD 1000 electrical appliances voucher

—————————————————————————-

If you ask me how to increase your chances of winning the #IconHomeProject, I will say you should listen a bit more to what your interior designer suggests. I have seen how the wrong choice of colours or furnishing (due to the persistence of the customers) totally ruined the entire concept of the house. When I asked the IDs how come some of the houses did not turn out as great, they told me sadly, “What to do? The owner insisted. They are the paying master, after all. We can only suggest.”

 

SO LISTEN MORE TO YOUR ID OKAY? THEN THEY WILL DESIGN YOUR HOUSE AS NICE AS THE FOLLOWING HOUSES, IF NOT NICER.

ICON-HOUSE2

 

TEN GREEN PACKETS IN ALL?

(Okay fine, technically it is nine green packets.)

THIS IS EVEN BETTER THAN THE CNY FAIR, NEVERTHELESS!

(And I thought that one was already so good!)

THANK YOU THANK YOU!

 

Let me also spend some time to thank the following people who have made #IconHomeProject Season 2 a bigger success than the first one.

 

#1: THANKS Blog Readers!

First up, I would like to thank my readers who engaged Icon Interior Design and put their trust in them! I guess you should already know by now that I do not fancy promoting something that I do not believe in.

One of my readers told me this the other time, which tickled me.

“I like to refer to your blog for anything. But my friends sometimes think that whatever you blog about or promote is too good to be true. It’s like you are trying to cover up the bad (or back) side of the company or product.”

OH MY GOSH.

Fair enough if some of my readers have this impression of me.

But may I explain myself now, please? I think I have this so many times before but never mind, since I am turning into an auntie, might as well repeat the same old thing again and again.

You see ah, I do not promote just because I am paid or sponsored to do so. If that particular product or company does not catch my attention or does not impress me as a consumer, I would not even blog about it at all, no matter how much I am offered to do so. Besides, which client would want to pay me for saying something negative about them, right? LOL.

So trust me when you read my blog because whatever you read is not something made up. If I like it or I believe in it, I will blog about it wholeheartedly. If I don’t, I will not even mention it. It is really as simple as that.

CAN?

 

On a side note, your experience in home renovation and my experience in home renovation may differ because of our different personalities, communication styles, threshold level, and expectations. But other than that, the IDs from Icon Interior Design that I have been working with (namely Wayne, Shafee and Hamed) are nice chaps, and are more than 100% committed and experienced in their field of work. They are definitely not the sort with the “Aiyah just do anyhow as long as we get paid!” mentality. This also explains why we are good friends on normal days. If they were frauds or cheats in the first place, I would not even mix around with them because my mum told me not to mix with bad company.

When we are talking business, we can turn into the worst enemies ever. Fauzi Anuar can vouch for this because he has seen how I argued with those guys just to get my point across. He kept shaking his head while photographing the houses. On another side note, thank you so much to my buddy Fauzi Anuar for the beautiful photos which often end up looking as good as 3D photos. He is a perfectionist, so cannot blame him for always delivering nothing but the best.

#2: THANKS Icon Interior Design!

I have to really thank the guys from Icon Interior Design for always listening to my ideas and suggestions first before they suggest their ideas because well, I believe I know my readers better. But what I am trying to say here is, it is very rare to have the boss listening attentively to you and agreeing to your suggestions 99% of the time, right?

And which boss would entertain your nonsense and do a Dubsmash for you?

YES HE DID ONE FOR ME. BUT HE DOES NOT ALLOW ME TO SHARE IT WITH YOU. 

HAHAHAHAHAHA!

So thank you Wayne, Shafee and Hamed for entertaining my nonsense, which is really not nonsense actually, most of the time. I just like to conceal my ingenious ideas with baloney. LOL.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………

 

After reading this post, you can proceed to make an appointment with Icon Interior Design, but you got to most importantly inform them that you come from my blog.

Nowadays, with so many renovation companies out there in the market, you are really spoilt for choice, aren’t you? I was like you too, but I guess at the end of the day, you have to trust your instincts and choose the renovation company based on:

 

  1. How comfortable you are with the interior designer attending to you.

 

  1. How experienced the interior designer is in his line of work.

 

  1. How realistic and practical the interior designer is in providing ideas and the solutions for your new house.

 

  1. Your budget.

 

At the end of the day, it is not advisable to go for the cheapest rates because cheap does not ensure quality (not in renovation at least), especially if you are looking to stay in that house for a long period of time. Some renovation companies can afford to give you the cheapest rates at the expense of compromising the workmanship and quality of the materials used. That said, you do not have to go for a high-end company as well as you need to consider your budget.

AND WOULDN’T YOU WANT TO SEE THE 3D DRAWING OF YOUR FUTURE HOUSE FIRST BEFORE YOU PROCEED WITH THE RENOVATION WORKS?

 

THE DESIGNERS AT ICON INTERIOR DESIGN WILL DO IT FOR YOU FOR FREE.

 

Contact them today at 9431 4921 to book an appointment and to find out more!

 

OKAY I AM DONE.

Have a blessed Ramadan, my Muslim readers.

That said, I will behave exceptionally well.

Majulah Singapura!

What makes you Singaporean?

Or what makes you proud to be one?

I certainly am.

And I am super stoked to be a part of NDP 2015 and SG50.

 

NDP3

Just the other day, I was invited to the NDP 15 Media Event together with some other Nuffnangers. Chairman of NDP 2015 Executive Committee (EXCO) Brigadier-General Melvyn Ong briefed us about the highlights of this year’s National Day Parade.

 NDP4

The very fact that we are celebrating SG50 makes this year’s celebration extra special.

 NDP7

A picture with Amantha (one of our managing executives from Nuffnang), MongChin, Corliss, and Missgoob! (I felt sooooo old next to them because they are all like, less than 30 years old! LOL)

So since I had the advantage of finding out more about NDP 15, I am going to share with you some of the highlights that you should take note of!

AS USUAL, YOU CAN THANK ME LATER.

READY?

 

Highlights of NDP 2015:

 

  1. Tribute to LKY

I am sure this will be a very emotional moment for us Singaporeans.

To remember the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew, there will be a special film and performance.

The Republic of Singapore Air Force’s (RSAF) Black Knights will execute the “Five stars” Tribute Aerial Flypast in honour of our founding Prime Minister.

  1. “Home” by The Sam Willows

The Sam Willows will be singing a rendition of Kit Chan’s “Home” and I cannot wait to hear this one!

 

  1. NDP’S 2015 THEME

This year’s theme will be “Majulah Singapura” which calls on all Singaporeans to reflect on our achievements over the past 50 years, and work collectively towards our bright future together as one Singapore.

 NDP1

 

 

  1. NDP’S THEME SONG

This year’s theme song is “Our Singapore”, which is composed by the very talented Dick Lee.

 NDP8

The song is really meaningful to me because it calls on us to not take our present achievements for granted.

 

  1. Vintage parade

We can all look forward to the Vintage Parade, which will re-enact segments of the street parades that took place in the early 1970s. The parade will involve contingents from organisations representative of different sectors across Singapore.

I had a sneak preview of the Vintage Parade that day, and I was really amused by how cute all the participants looked! I could not stop myself from chuckling as a result.

 NDP6

Then I had the honour of taking a picture with SSSGT (R)

Ramalingam S/O Nadasan Pillay from the Singapore Police Force. Yes, I chose to take a picture with him because well, my brother is in the Police Force too!

 NDP5

Just look at how the police uniform has changed over the years! I cannot imagine Sofian in this vintage uniform!

That would be classic, no pun intended.

LOL.

SSSGT (R) Ramalingam S/O Nadasan Pillay first participated in NDP in 1967 when he was in the Police Force! So this year, he is going to be a part of the Vintage Parade for NDP 2015, and he cannot wait to put up a good show for his grandchildren! I wish you all the best, sir!

Here is the Chairman of NDP 2015 Executive Committee (EXCO) Brigadier-General Melvyn Ong interviewing SSSGT (R) Ramalingam S/O Nadasan Pillay.

SO CUTE, RIGHT!

 

  1. WATCH NDP 15 ON LED SCREENS

You can be rest assured that NDP 2015 will invite as many Singaporeans as possible to be part of the festivities by extending the celebrations to various sites around the Marina Bay area.

This includes:

  • Marina Bay Sands Event Plaza
  • The Promontory
  • Merlion Park
  • Marina Barrage
  • Gardens by The Bay

 

Yes yes, the Parade will be broadcast on LED screens at the abovementioned venues!

 

  1. Aerial display of “50”

To commemorate our Golden Jubilee, NDP 2015 will feature new elements such as the Republic of Singapore Air Force’s “50” formation flypast.

  1. Participations of youths & pioneers

This year’s NDP 15 is extra special because of the participation by youths and pioneers. I was even told that the response for the parade this year was so overwhelming till they had to politely turn down so many requests. So many of our youths and pioneers wanted to be a part of NDP 15.

  1. 20:15:00

At exactly 20:15 (hours) all Singaporeans will unite to recite the pledge and sing the national anthem, “Majulah Singapura”, to mark our nation’s Golden Jubilee.

So do ensure that your watch’s timing is not too fast or too slow! LOL.

 

 10.   Finale

Everyone’s favourite, Kit Chan, will be doing the finale! Don’t say I didn’t tell youuuuu.

 

11.      Firework sites

The two firework sites for this year’s National Day Parade will be:

  • The Float @ Marina Bay
  • Padang

These two sites will also be the ticketed sites for Singaporeans to view the NDP 2015 Show!

SO THAT’S ABOUT IT.

I am not trying to be a spoiler or anything by telling you what to expect for NDP 15.

All I am trying to do is to just to let you know how proud I am to be a Singaporean.

Happy 50th, my Singapore!
