[Invited Tasting]

Skai and I were invited alongside other bloggers for a food tasting event at Crowne Plaza Crab and Crepe some time ago. Unfortunately yours truly has been rather tardy in reviewing this and the buffet is no longer available. In any case, I really liked the pictures taken that day and would like to share them for memory sake. LOL

Honestly, I was feeling very bad that day during food tasting. I was having bad morning sickness coupled with migraines and basically puked the whole damn day. But I had promised Carrie that I would attend the food tasting and still appeared nonetheless.

Skai was basically my tastebuds that day as I was feeling extremely queazy and unwell. Azur (one of our favourite places for food tastings) brought together Crabs and Crepes (both sweet and savoury) for a buffet! Here are some items where c(hubby) aka Skai savoured!

As mentioned in my previous blog entry about my second honeymoon in Maldives, I promised to share the difference between All Inclusive, Full Board and Half Board packages in Maldives.

When we were researching about where to stay in Maldives, we were shocked at the many different types of packages available.

Thankfully, as we were no strangers to the Club Med concept (having visited Club Med Bintan and Club Med Phuket), we were able to wrap our heads around the various packages available.

Here's #nadskai's interpretation of the very many Maldives packages available!

[Invited Food Tasting]

It's been a while since I visited Park Hotel Clarke Quay since my last Singapore Staycation. The kind folks from Park Hotel Clarke Quay invited me over to one of their restaurants, Brizo Restaurant to sample their latest launch: the Taste of Singapura buffet.

To celebrate the nation’s 50th year milestone, Brizo Restaurant & Bar is launching a brand new nostalgic Singapore seafood and local dinner buffet. The Taste of Singapura buffet brims with flavoursome seafood and scrumptious local delights to evoke national pride. Stealing the limelight in the main buffet spread are distinctive local flavours such as the Salted Egg Crayfish, aromatic Fish Head Curry made with a homemade curry paste of Indian spices, Wok-fried La-la (clam) in Soya Bean Paste, Butter Prawns with Curry Leaves, Har Cheong Gai (Prawn Paste Chicken) and Kam Heong Sotong (Squid in Fragrant Curry Sauce).

This is a Sundate - #nadskai at it's best entry. For more info about the themed blog posts, do read the entry here.

First up, I gotta state this upfront. Skai aka c(hubby) and I love Staycations. We have had friends keep making fun of us going for staycations. I don't see what's so wrong about going for staycations. Instead of exchanging expensive gifts or extravagant bouquets of flowers for birthdays or Valentine's Day, we instead choose to go for a staycation.

Some prefer to spend on an expensive watch or some jewellery, we prefer staycations. What's wrong with that? Tsk. Jin irritating. It's our money, what is it to them sia?!

ANYWAY, it's pretty much our tradition to go for a staycation to celebrate our birthdays. And as my birthday is a week away from Valentine's Day, we usually celebrate two occasions into one.

For this year, Skai surprised me by booking a staycation at Royal Plaza at the Scotts! I have been to Carousel for dinner before but this was our first time staying at Royal Plaza at the Scotts!

Skai had booked a higher tier, the Royal Club (as opposed to the Superior and Deluxe rooms) as we really enjoy hotels with Club Lounge services but because we checked in late (due to a lovely lunch at Koh Grill), we got upgraded! Also, because my birthday falls during the peak season, most of the time, the hotels are operating at high occupancy. WHAT LUCK IS THIS?! We got upgraded to a suite! **DOES A HAPPY DANCE**

I can't get enough of Club Med. 4 years ago, I surprised Skai with a vacation to Club Med Bintan. It was such an extraordinary time that we couldn't stop raving about it to friends and family.

This time, with the huge Club Med Phuket promo, Skai and I booked a trip to Phuket! Every year, we visit Phuket without fail. That's something magical about Phuket for us. We love the people, the beach, the laidback lifestyle and the food.

Needless to say, this Club Med experience wowed us too thus for today's Thursday's Travels post, I decided to pen down 10 reasons why I love Club Med!

1. Free flow of alcohol

There is a beauty in guzzling free drinks. It felt almost sinful enjoying beers over wine over to cocktails for every meal. The alcoholic hubby was grinning ear to ear the entire trip.

And I know it wasn't my lovely presence that made him so happy. It was the nonstop free flow of alcohol. The feeling of never ever having to pay for an overpriced cocktail during our trip was so good.

This is one of the reasons why I've been trying to get my girlfriends to go Club Med with me. It'll be PARTY TIME ALL DAY!

2. The rooms are extraordinary.
