It’s NOVEMEBER. gawd how fast time flies – and yes i haven’t blogged for a long time due to the massive workload i have in school, but today i just finished the FINAL essay of 2011, so i’m highly delighted and decided to do a quick update on what has happened in the month of November (besides studying and essays)
ANYWAYS, first and foremost, i would like to announce that i have been formally accepted into UCL for SEP and my fellow NUS-UCL friends and i are going crazy with all the admins and documents required of us, but yet at the same time, it’s taking my ENTIRE mind OFF studying and exams. BUT it’s definitely worth it.
EATS AND BIRTHDAYS.
This month started off with MANY birthday celebrations, mainly 21st birthdays and more importantly, my bf’s 21st birthday – honestly i love his birthday celebrations; quality time alone with different groups of people close to him (unlike my mash up and rojak birthday party)
WEDNESDAY: celebration with EUG/holiday INN/ZOUK/pissed drunk -.-‘’ (not cool)
FRIDAY: steamboat with army friends/apple strudel/tiramisu/alcohol/Club SOUL
SATURDAY: home cooked meal from ME to him (damn i can cook)/ Town/shopping/Michelangelo’s restaurant
1. CAPESANTE a GAMBERI – A delightful pan-seared scallops topped with caviar served atop a bed of onion confit and garlic tiger prawns perched on sun-dried tomato pesto and lemon butter. (4/5 stars)
2. BEEF CARPACCIO – Thinly sliced tenderloin of beef sprinkled with truffle oil, arugula, salt and cracked black pepper topped with parmesan shavings (3/5 stars)
4. QUARANTAOTTO – Michelangelo’s signature dish! U.S.D.A. boneless beef short ribs braised for a minimum of 48 hours served in a sherry broth sided with delicately whipped potatoes scented with white truffle oil. (limited servings daily!) (3.5/5 stars)
5. AGNELLO di MICHELANGELO – Their famous char-grilled rack of lamb finished in the oven in its own juices served with a mint sauce sided with seasonal vegetables and truffled mash potatoes. (4/5 stars)
Absolutely love the outdoor dining of this restaurants and the personal attention given by the staff to us in making the birthday celebration a special one! (They even give us a birthday card with our picture printed on it – just like what Morton does) – SWEET. I would definitely recommend Michelangelo’s as a restaurant to go to for any special occasion or even just for a gorgeous and sumptuous meal! The prices are pretty reasonable for the quality of food you get and it’s just WORTH IT.
Michelangelo’s restaurant – 60 Jalan Merah Saga, Singapore 278124 (Tel: 64759069)
SUNDAY: Champagne Brunch at Ritz Carlton/Town (WILL BLOG MORE ABOUT THIS SOON –too awesome to not share it with you guys, but meanwhile, it’s 3am and my laptop is running like a snail..)
