Food Review : WOODY Family Cafe

Most Singaporeans (myself included) love Peranakan cuisine as we are living in a multi-racial country, and we try to understand and appreciate each and every race's tradition values even when it comes to food... 
 
I was glad to be invited to attend a food tasting last week, which was located at pretty much on the outskirts of Singapore, and now I want to share this awesome eatery place is located at Andrews Avenue, Sembawang Straits Estate and it offers mouth-watering Fusion Peranakan cuisine.

 
I was at WOODY Family Cafe for my food tasting and it is known for their delicious Fusion Peranakan food. It caters to all ages and allows the diners to taste home-cooked food in an alfresco cosy ambience that will make you feel like home...

 
WOODY Family Cafe is a great place for chill-out with laid-back environment. It is a pretty good food haunt for people who are looking for quiet, good music and yummy food.  


HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!

Chewy Jas and Jess Baby were enjoying our cocktails...


Pumpkin Soup tasted pretty alright with generous portion of ingredients


Beer Batter Fish and Chips served with 'ah char', a truly nonya recipe. It is a pretty unique creation of a Western/Peranakan fusion dish as it is served with home-made 'ah char' instead of normal salad or greenies...


Chinchalok Omelette - I love the pinkish colored fermented small shrimps asthey give flavor to the whole dish, and it is a truly Nonya dish. I love it loads!!


Crispy Onion Rings served with Wasabi Mayo, and I savor every piece of it. OM!! I can't get enough of them...


The Mango Salad bears a pretty resemblance to Thai Green Mango Salad, but it is in Peranakan version, and every mouthful is full of fruits and vegetables piled up together mixed with their homemade spicy salad sauce.


Buffalo Wings in normal version, and to spice up your dining experience, simply level up the spiciness for your dining pleasure...


Challenge yourself to the ultimate level, Eruption Spicy Peranakan Buffalo Wings. The wings are seasoned with Chef Jenny's aka the cafe owner's very own chili padi sambal recipe, I am pretty sure that the spiciness is going to make you go wild...


We indulged ourselves with the Lamb Shank Rendang. Each lamb shank is brewed for 3-4 hours in Guinness stout and lots of other secret ingredients which make the gravy looks thick and rich.


The Lamb Shank Rendang served with bread...


Every dip tasted heavenly good...


The Golden Mushroom Crisps are pretty addictive, and I got hooked up immediately with one try and I can't stop popping more into my mouth. It is a great snack to go with beer while chilling out with friends.


To round up our meal, we had Blueberry GelatoIce-ream dessert.


Refreshing Coconut Sorbet served in Coconut Husk.


I like the unique way the restaurant has come up on how to cook Fusion Peranakan cuisine. Authentic yet special that leaves diners coming back for more...
 
We ended our food tasting at WOODY Family Cafe with a group photo with Chef Jenny and her hubby.

W Singapore Sentosa Cove Grand Premiere

W Singapore Sentosa Cove provides a luxurious and lifestylic hotel experience to their guests. With an iconic and contemporary design, it makes for an extraordinary rich experience at W Singapore Sentosa Cove.
 

The grand entrance of the hotel is really very posh.  It is definitely a nice destination to escape from the urban city.

 
W Singapore Sentosa Cove features 240 sea and marina facing guestrooms. Relax at the outdoor pool, WET.

 
I love the WET BAR loads!!

 
I attended the W Singapore Sentosa Cove Grand Premiere, and I was in awe of the surroundings in the hotel. The interior of the hotel is really AWESOME!!

 
 Upon entering the hotel, we were greeted to a flight of stairs with red carpets and upon taking up the stairs it will lead to the function room/ballroom – GREAT ROOM, where the after-party was held.

 
I love the lotus flowers on the ceiling, and they made me feel like I was in a flora paradise...

 
We took some pictures at the W Lounge.

 
A photo booth was set up for guests to take some instant photos at the premises...

All thanks to W Singapore’s arrangement, we were able to tour around the Wonderful Room and Marvellous Suite. We took the lift up to start our room tour.
 
 
Standard Double Room, WONDERFUL ROOM comes with a chill area & partial ocean view, with a special feature and mood lighting in four colors.


 
We took a group before we left the room for the next one...

 
I am soooo in love with the WONDERFUL ROOM!!

 
Junior Suite Double Room, Marvellous Suite comes with a L-shape balcony with partial sea view & a separate living room.


 
It looks spacious and stylish...


 
They provide nothing but the best body and bath essential products from bliss.
 
 
 
Ending my room tour at Marvellous Suite with a picture at the bathtub in the En suite bathroom. Thanks for the invite! I enjoyed myself very much during the W Singapore Sentosa Cove Grand Premiere.

Random happenings in Jess Baby's world

 I got an invitation to the 170th Anniversary Celebration (Jubilee Stakes) from Singapore Turf Club, with thanks to William for extending it to me. The venue was held at Marquee.


I made new friends during the event... Hello CK and CF!!


We had fun at the Jubilee Stakes celebrating Singapore Turf Club’s 170 years of racing history and myriad achievements.


We were treated to a sumptuous hi-tea buffet...


The photo below was featured in Singapore Turf Club's Facebook.

 
We had fun doing a 7 seconds short video clip, and our motions were created into a mini-book (flip the pages in a fast mode to see our movements).


I was given a '170 Years of Racing' medallion for my keep-sake...



I am excited to receive the trial kit from philosophy, the new skincare line which just came into Singapore market early this year in March.


I met up Jas Jas for dinner and la kopi session on a random day after our work, and we had a happy time together.


I am glad to have you as a friend, Jas Jas.

**I have a pen, and my pen is blue
I have a friend, and my friend is you**


Jas Jas brightened up my day by making me a friendship band... OM!! I love it loads (:
