Level 33 – Long Overdue Post

A simple brunch at Level 33 turned out more than we expected!

The weekend started like any other, except I made plans to have brunch here with the Man.  Made reservations via Chope and we promptly settled down where we got there.

We were there for about 2 hours and decided that we should head off as there were a couple of errands we needed to run. While we were waiting, 2 ladies approached us, 1 of them whom I believe is the manager….

She came over to our table and said ” This meal is complimentary as you used Chope to make your reservation!”

It was definitely a great start to a weekend!

So much more

Received a package earlier in the day.

This friend is sneaky and so generous with her choice of gifts… All I got her were just ‘healthy’ nuts and ‘shrivelled fruits? Embarrassing much?

See what she got me? A fancy leather pouch, a book with a nice ‘cover’ and there was a handwritten note!! 

Thank you, imp! No more okay?

Good Turned Bad

The initial experience was good and I decided to ‘up the stakes’ this time around. I took a long time gathering the wares and was feeling great getting it done.

But after almost 60 days, there is a need to accept the fact.  It is not arriving and I will get nothing in exchange for my loss. Who do I blame? The postal service or vendor? Or maybe, plain ol’ me for not putting that extra $ for postage…

The One On The Alexa

An initial dinner meet-up with a girlfriend turned into a mini-bag-buying trip as she was pretty keen in getting the Mulberry Alexa…We whats-apped each other to confirm the time and she was already at the store!! The Man and I hurried off from our regular salon (he was getting his hair cut and me, a shampoo) to make our way to Mandarin Gallery to grab this!

So many colors were available but she couldn’t take her eyes off this gorgeous shade of brown  and this was it!

Omasake Burger

New burger joint which had highly rated reviews! (8 days magazine – Possibly the Best Burger in Singapore) Located at The GrandStand (formerly turf city), there were ample parking spaces (+1) and I think they are undergoing some revamp..

Met up with The Man’s friend and we decided to check out this place for lunch!

We all agreed that the burgers were great tasting except it was a little pricey as it cost us some $76.00 for 3 meals!
