A Singapore Food Post: Swensen's®

After the fiasco that happened at NAIA 3 and my slight annoyance at certain passengers during our flight back to our 2nd home (read more about that in my previous post -- link here), the Little One and I finally arrived in Singapore without any other major mishap.  Whew!
And with us having arrived a little later than expected, we decided to have an early dinner before heading on for home.  Our choice?  Why, Swensen's®, of course.

Swensen's® at Changi Airport 2, Singapore



I may probably be the last person in Manila to try a BonChon chicken (read my crazy post at this here link), but I can definitely say I'm not the last person to have tasted a Swensen's® meal.  Haven't tried them in Manila though, but here in Singapore, it's one of the Husband's and my favorite restaurants.  In fact, we've been frequent patrons since 2008.


Hungry!

Although Swensen's® is well-known for their creamy desserts, it's their savory meals that keep us coming back again and again.  Here are just a few of our favorites:

Creamy Mushroom Soup

A really creamy soup made from Shiitake and button mushrooms. A good way to start your meal.

Teriyaki Chicken Pasta (S$16.90 / Php557.70*)

Grilled chicken thigh in sweet teriyaki sauce served with spaghetti and a side of vegetables.

The noodles are lightly coated in oil (olive, me thinks) and sprinkled with a few herbs.  Compliments the tasty chicken perfectly.  It's sweet and savory and delicious!

Crabmeat Fried Rice (S$14.90 / Php491.70*)

I usually have the baked rice dishes at Swensen's® (definite bestsellers, too) but for this trip, we decided to have the Crabmeat fried rice for a change.

A traditional fried rice meal with crispy battered soft shell crab on top.  Never regreted it; not even for a minute.

Swensen's® Banana Split (around S$9.00 / Php297* a serving)


And this being Swensen's®,  it was only but fitting that we ended our meal with ice cream -- 3 scoops of it in the form of a luscious, creamy Banana split.

Swensen's® Banana Split

Classic ice cream flavors of vanilla, strawberry, and chocolate topped with a generous helping of whipped cream and almonds, and garnished with a banana and a cherry.  Yum!  (Note: select outlets also offer an all-you-eat ice cream and dessert buffet too, for those with really vicious sweet tooths -- like me!!!)

So you see, Swensen's® can deliver some really tasty meals, too.  J

PH | Bang's Tony & Jackey Beauty Salon's Aqua Volume Rebond

I've always had ruly, unmanageable hair for as long as I can remember, hence the introduction of rebonding services here in PH is a blessing.  I've been having my hair rebonded or relaxed once a year since 2002.  It's an expense that I make sure is always included in the yearly luxury budget.

Whereas before I used to have my hair rebonded at a David's Salon (since they always deliver consistently great results), I had to stop and look to other establishments when they eventually jacked up their prices (what used to cost me Php3,000 is now priced at Php5,000 to Php6,000, depending on the branch!).  Too much for my already hurting wallet.  Hence, the need to try other salons.  I've been happy with the results, so far.

The one thing though. that always gets me though is how lifeless and limp my hair tends to look when newly treated.  It's always the case wherever I have my tresses done.  It will look it's best at least a month or 2 after treatment.  It was onl…

Style for Less: Ballerina Flats (Tory Burch vs Kamiseta)

Have you ever noticed how fashionable high-end items just keep on being reinvented by some other brand.  Well after having my eyes checked for fear of seeing doubles (normal daw sabi ni Doc), I decided to scour through the malls in search of fashion doppelgangers.

THE SPLURGE: Tory Burch's Reva ballerina flats (USD195 or around Php9,000)

When well-known American fashion designer Tory Burch released her line of Reva ballerina flats, it was an instant hit.  Known for its incredibly comfortable material and structure with a nicely padded sole and an elasticized heel, these babies made a killing and everyone wanted one. 

How to Apply for a Philippine Postal ID Card

I've said it once and I'll say it again, woe to the newly married woman who has, for years, have gotten so used to her surname only to find that a single (wedding) day, will change this familiarity forever.

I have to admit, it was not easy for me to adapt to a new surname, due mainly for professional reasons.  Throughout my profession career, I have been known by my maiden name and to have to inform all my contacts of the change was, well, too tiresome.  And so I decided to go the hypenated route and I eventually ended up with 2 surnames.  Such was the compromise!  =)
