[Food Review] Manhattan Star Platter

The Manhattan Star Platter is the newest special fresh creation from The Manhattan FISH MARKET. It is a delight for all seafood lovers like me...  
 
 
The platter is prepared in five methods - poached, grilled, flamed, baked and fried. Be pampered by the tastes and freshness of the seafood as you will be spoilt by choices as every method tasted delicious... I bet you will enjoy it as much as I did...
 
 
Poached Garlic Herb Mussels
The mussels are poached to preserve the moisture, juiciness and flavors, and it is served in the restaurant’s signature Garlic Herb sauce


 Grilled Calamari ; Fried Oysters
 
 

Flamed Manhattan Flaming Prawns

The service crew also known as Sea-cret Agents perform on-the-spot flaming to bring out the caramelized sweetness of the succulent prawns.

 
Mediterranean Baked Fish.
Another restaurant's favorite, the dory fillet is baked in an irresistible blend of flavorful spices and herbs in foil.

 
Among all the methods, my favorite has got to be the Mediterranean Baked Fish. It tasted flavorful + addictive, and it is definitely a good breakthrough dish for the restaurant. Splendid!!

 
All the five method of cooking were placed on the platter which is at SGD39.95 and it can be shared by 2 person... Be noted that Manhattan Star Platter is only available for dine-in at all outlets of The Manhattan FISH MARKET from now till the 31 October 2013.
 
 
Let's not to forget the mocktails at The Manhattan FISH MARKET! Do try out my personal favorite, Cala Cala. It is a refreshing drink with combination of Calamansi and Lemonade for a citrus fizzy experience.
 
 
I hereby end my food review with the Mushroom Soup. The texture of the soup was thick and the mushroom bits were chewy too. A great start up to welcome the main course.

 
Do try out the Manhattan Star Platter and give your verdict today.

COACH FALL 2013 Collection Shoe Party

Coach is an American luxury leather goods company, and the all new Fall Shoe Collection is enough to charm my heart and I love the craftsmanship that fits the feminity of a woman who is wearing them...
 
 
 
The Coach's 2013 Fall Shoe Collection features printed fabrics and blocking color schemes. The new collection gives comfort to the feet and also pampers us with fresh new designs and bold textures.

 
Coach expanded its leather expertise into the shoe collection this fall season, and I was immersed by the feminine heels that are made from the luxurious leather and a sturdy heel to support a good posture when wearing it. 

 
 Coach Fall footwear collection will be a next trend talk in town among the ladies in town...

 
I attended the Fall 2013 Collection Show Party which was held at Coach boutique, Paragon.


 
 
There was an interesting photo printing machine located at the evening, all we have to do was to take a picture on Instagram with some designated hashtag, then click share it on Instagram, and the photo machine will detect and print out the photos...
 
 

 

 

I had fun playing on the photo machine and I printed 3 selfies of me...


 
After the event, we received a nice set of magnetic coaster from Coach upon exiting the premises...

Happy Chuseok ; Happy Korean Thanksgiving Day!!

The weather in Singapore remains hot as it is used to be a couple of months ago... Many Singaporeans (including me) is trying to adapt to the heat in our country, though Baby and I always say to each other 'why your country so hot huh?'
 
 
We decided to beat the heat by making our way to VivoCity to redeem our free scoop ice-cream from Ben & Jerry. We appreciated the icy sweet fix on the scorching afternoon...

 
We picked up a scoop of Clusterfluff (peanut butter ice-cream) and I had it in the cup form. It tasted yummy and so refreshing, and this is definitely a good way to beat the weather...
 

 I work in a Korean company, and to them, Chuseok also known as Korean Thanksgiving in English is the biggest and most important festive holidays of the year in Korea, as it is the time for family gathering and visiting ancestral graves. 
 
 Each and every employee in my company was given a gift box which consisted of Korean Traditional food that people eat during the Chuseok holiday. I was so glad to be a part of the Chuseok celebration.

 The Koreans celebrate Chuseok by making special food and one of the popular traditional foods is songpyeon, a Korean traditional rice cake which is stuffed with healthy ingredients.

 
Happy Chuseok ; Happy Korean Thanksgiving Day!!
 
 
Baby brought me to a new food haunt for our random weekend dinner, and it is called Buddy Hoagies Café & Grill which is located at Bukit Timah Shopping Centre. It offers authentic and great tasting western cuisine in a unique country charm coupled with a casual and relaxed ambience.
 
 
We started off our meal with the Minestrone Soup with Garlic Bread... 

 
Baby had Western BBQ Chicken with Mashed Potato and Seasonal Greens, and I love the charred chicken meat as it tasted REALLY tender and delicious...


 I had Veggie Aglio Olio with Bacon, and my choice of pasta was Penne. My main course tasted yummy but it was too oily. The damage was minimal as it cost less than SGD25, and it is a decent meal overall.

 
Ending my post with Coco's day-out on a random Sunday morning...

Mid-Autumn Festival Celebration

Mid-Autumn Festival has always been a favorite event for me, as I love eating moon-cakes (especially snow-skin types) and playing with traditional lanterns with candles… I think those LED lights or battery operated lanterns totally kill the original significance of this cultural festival. 
 
I picked up a pack of 4 paper lanterns that featured Disney Characters from Tesco Extra at Tebrau City. The pack of 4 cost me RM12.95 (SGD5-ish).
 

~ Cars ~


~ Winnie the Pooh and Friends ~





~ Mickey Mouse and Friends ~


 


~ Disney Princess ~
 

 
 
Baby and I travelled to Admiralty Waterfront Park to do our mini Mid-Autumn Festival celebration, and upon reaching we went to a place (corner) to light up our lanterns as the park was pretty windy that day, it gave us a hard time to light up the candles…




 
 
We lit up the Disney Princess and Cars lanterns…
 
 
We had a nice time strolling in the park with our lit lanterns, and we took some photos along the way…
 


 
We ate black sesame with single egg yolk moon-cake together as a form to conclude the celebration of this festival.



 
Happy Mid-Autumn Festival aka Lantern Festival or Moon-cake Festival.
