COOK BOOK BISTRO & CAFE X FOOD TASTING

Took the time to check out the newly-opened COOK BOOK BISTRO & CAFE after a good friend’s recommendation. I’m usually quite the huge eater but decided to go easy on my stomach today as I’ve been a pig for the past week. Time to go healthy for a while, but I assure you not for long!

The menu selection here is extensive (ranging from Western delicacies to local favorites) & priced very affordably. Also, if you’re a fan of CRAFT BEER, this is the place to go! HAPPY HOUR’S from MONDAYS TO THURSDAYS, now don’t be shy, let’s cheers to that!

//3PM-7PM : CRAFT BEER $21 FOR 3 PINT//

//9PM-11PM : CRAFT BEER $28 FOR 3 PINT//

//MON & TUES : FREE DRINK & APPETIZER WITH EVERY MAIN/1 FOR 1 ON ALL NON-ALCOHOLIC DRINKS//

But for now, let’s have the CREAM OF WILD MUSHROOM & the GRILLED BLACK PEPPER CHICKEN THIGH first!

The food arrived quickly & being the hungry monster that I am, I wasted no time in digging in. I can be so barbaric at times. The GRILLED CHICKEN THIGH was done just the way I liked – tender & succulent. It was literally love at first bite. And what’s not to love when the portion is so generous! The CREAM OF WILD MUSHROOM was rich-tasting, my my my!

Did I also mention that the ambience here is great? It’s really spacious, it’s actually a perfect place to gather with your family & friends! Some days you want to get away from the hustle bustle in town & just chill out with your loved ones.

Ps, you’d be delighted to know there’s more promotions!

you knock me off my feet

Some snippets of the week before.

Late breakkie at Robertson Quay, reason being I’ve kinda swung back to my old habits & am not that much of an early riser at the moment.

Dinner at Cocotte with my sweetie-pie, oh my this place is so amazing! I didn’t realize how caught up I’ve been at work these days I barely have the time to sit down for a proper meal with my girls other than Rah Rah who has turned herself into a resident in my humble abode.

It’s time to dedicate a day a week for proper dining with my loved ones. Work can wait since my tummy doesn’t exactly have the best temper. If you thought this was food overload, think again! I’m like a monster when it comes to food & I’d wipe your plates clean, provided it’s solely meat.

So stuffed at the end of it all there was no way we could budge. Despite a bulging tummy, it didn’t stop me from getting dessert. Sometimes I wonder why I need to eat THAT much.

There was also the impromptu visit to Universal Studios. We literally covered the entire place from day to night. Man was I proud of myself for waking up earlier than expected & battling it out with the sun despite  having a terrible heat rash. Good job Agri!

Yes this literally felt like a kid’s excursion. Because for some rides, our belongings had to be stowed in lockers, I almost burst out in tears when our pennies combined wasn’t enough for an ice-cream I was craving for badly. It’s fun to never grow up & feel like you’re twelve forever albeit for a day. If only dreams could last forever!

Seriously dead beat at the end of it all I should have just gone home to pass out. But hunger got in the way!

And so despite all that exhaustion, my feet took me here. So good I’m probably never going to eat anywhere else for a week!

Alright, enough of food already, it’s time to get back to work. I’d better work my ass off before the weekend hits me like a hurricane!

the little obsessions

Here’s a lil’ update on what I’ve been up to for the past few weeks. My blog is a dead corpse but I’m alive & kicking. With my addiction to Instagram & my recent activation on Facebook, I’ve become way too lazy to keep the posts coming here!

Sorry I know that shouldn’t be an excuse, but really I’ve been having the craziest schedules as of late with outdoor shoots & meetings. Alright, less talk & it’s time to feed you with some photos!

Lunch at Annam with Jay Daniel & Ash. Best Crab Meat Fried Rice I’ve ever had in my life even though it costs a whopping $32.00! So good we had 3 individual portions, insane or what?

I also recently took up this beauty project together with my KL babe Chels which took all afternoon to shoot but was worth braving the sun for! Here’s some snippets from their website & some pictures on set! If you’re a beauty junkie like I am, don’t forget to check out Hermate for its incredible beauty device!

Loving my luminous skin which I must thank ASTIQUE CLINIC for. It’s not a secret anymore, a Glycolic Acid Peel is really a quick solution to erase sun-damaged skin & to sort out unever skin. Literally an instant goodbye to clogged pores with makeup buildup in a single session!

Of course, before you decide to do any form of peel, no matter how mild, it’s best you consult the professionals, because different skin types might not necessarily suit this type of peel. Credits to Kenneth Beltran & Joemel Sanchez for the photography. More pictures for you as soon I receive the full set!

Recently discovered this chill place to just hang with friends over beer & uber yummy wings. It’s been around for a while, I can’t believe it took me this long to find out! Thank you for being such a good host Paul! Wine BOS is located at 787 North Bridge Road.

there’s no stopping us all week

A short update on what I’ve been up to before I hop onto the next plane to KL again. Life’s been quite a bliss spent with my loved ones as of late despite all that crazy schedule packed with appointments back to back. I’m loving that kind of busy productivity, although it involves flying over to KL quite a bit.

Late lunch with my partner-in-crime.

Followed by dinner at Mezza9. We had such an amazing sashimi spread we couldn’t ask for more!

There’s also Louis’ birthday dinner at Cotton Bleu Bistro. Well, it’s been a while but I’m still loving this cozy environment & I’m still very much the ultimate hungry monster. Old habits die hard!

Rangoon Road Bah Kut Teh after a night of intense partying with my sweetheart is always highly satisfying. In my drunken state, I still made it here without fail.

 

Ended the week over at Pepes Restaurant with Rye Rye.

Alright, I better get started on packing that luggage before my honey bunny gets all ballistic on me again for last minute behaviours. Taking the earliest flight out is such a bad idea, there goes my sleep. Have a great weekend everyone!
