oh hail food .

you know how sometimes we need a friend or relative visiting then only would we make an effort to go out to dine 'properly'? well if you do, that's what happens ever so often in my family. with my dad and sister now living overseas temporarily, it's quieter around the house. mom and i normally just have simple lunches and dinners and well, that's it.

so, it's been nice to have my aunt in town because today, we made the effort to head out to The Fullerton Hotel to have a nice and relaxing lunch by the river. we were pretty impressed with the food at Town Restaurant so i suspect we might head back there again some day for their buffet lunch. as for today, twas ala carte.

we started with these:

Caramalized apples and Foie Gras.

Mussels in tomato sauce with garlic bread.

my mom, aunt, cousin and i then moved on to our mains respectively:

Soft-shelled crab tempura.

Cracked Pepper Cod with Miso soup and Japanese rice.

Grilled Salmon with prawn-filled mashed potatoes.

Duck's leg and breast with shredded duck wrapped in cabbage.

to wrap up our arvo nicely, we had the restaurant's tasting plate for desserts:


Vanilla ice cream with some kind of sponge cake that tasted really good.

i can't remember what this is.

Puny cheesecake.

Green tea cake that's been weirdly pierced with chocolate flakes.

i wore this dress with one shoulder off at first but decided to pull it up after lunch. i reckon it's nicer when worn as a boat-neck dress instead of a off-shoulder dress so... don't know what i was thinking when i stepped out of the house!

"i like big butts and i cannot lie, you other brothers can't deny." from "Baby Got Back".
but this one ain't such a big butt aye? haha.

wearing: brandless dress, Camberwell Market belt, Ray Ban aviators, JKC bangle, Sportsgirl bangle, Fossil watch, Chanel canvas jumbo, Wittner beige pumps (not pictured).


  1. Let me at those desserts!!!! I'm licking the computer screen. It's frustrating because i can't actually taste anything- my tongue is just getting a lot of static electricity.
    Hahaha! Of course i'm just being an idiot.
    You look really pretty! The butt grabbing pic made me giggle :)

  2. I miss Fullerton Hotel...lucky girl! I haven't been out to much restaurants here in Melb...boo!

    I love the dress both as a 1 shoulder dress and as a boat neck dress!

    I hope you are having lotsa fun in Sunny Singapore! Autumn is approaching Melbourne soon! Come back to visit...probably Boxing Day Sales or during some other kind of sales? Haha!

    I was going to list out every food that looked delicious. But then I realized that that was all of them, so that would just be contradictory. Therefore, please ship some of this food over? Thanks.

    And I totally know what you mean about eating well when people come over, or what not! I don't hate it.

    Thanks so much for stopping by!
