This is a Foodie Fridays - TGIF! It's time to get fat on Fridays! entry under my themed blog posts! For more info about this Singapore Food themed blog posts, do read the entry here.

I'm not sure if any of you guys may remember this... in 2010, I started this #mysterymakan tradition with JacelynEsther and Fidelis. Each of us would take turns planning makan outings and would only reveal the address on the day itself with no other details. With the Mystery Makan tradition, we visited new places and tried new food! It’s really fun and we all look forward to our Mystery Makan sessions. Personally, I always search for nice themed cafes to showcase in this Singapore Lifestyle Blog.

This time, it was BFF's time to organise!

Jace's Mystery Makan was located at Bodacious Bar and Bistro at 70 Biopolis Street. A lovely place for the Westies!

I loved the decor of Bodacious. I think it's Modern Industrial inspired with lovely bright, vibrant and vintage decor.

Who says Dating in Singapore is boring?!

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

The problem with being on the mailing list of many hotels is that you'll get very very very tempted over Singapore Staycations Promotions.

For instance, I received an EDM about Rendezvous Hotel and saw this amazing Singapore Staycation deal!

New-Rendezvous-Club

Rendezvous Weekend Getaway from S$298

  • 1-night stay in refurbished Club Room
  • 1-hr Thai Aroma Oil Body Massage
  • Cathay Movie Tickets
  • Exclusive access to Club Rendezvous lounge
  • Breakfast @ Club Rendezvous lounge
  • Daily comfort food @ Club Rendezvous lounge
  • Evening cocktail & canapés @ Club Rendezvous lounge
  • Complimentary refreshments throughout the day
  • Early check-in at 10am OR late check-out at 4pm
  • High-speed internet access

How not to succumb like that?! Staycation AND 1 hour body massage! Skai and I indulge in massages often and we thought this was a great promo! I immediately sent this promotion to a few of my Staycation loving friends and booked a hotel stay almost immediately!

On the day itself, we wanted to check in at the lobby but was ushered to the Club Rendezvous Lounge to check in instead.

And greedy us found out that there were light bites served so.... we ordered everything for lunch.

I can't emphasise this enough but.. I LOVE CLUB LOUNGES! Free flow of drinks, evening cocktails AND food!!!!

The hotel was operating on full capacity that day and we were lucky enough to be upgraded! Mwheeheheheee!

Love the full length mirror. Perfect for camwhoring. Here's my #nadootd (aka nadnut's Outfit of the day)

We had booked our massage at 7pm and we were surprised to find out that the massage was at Ayuthaya Royal Thai Spa at Rendezvous Gallery.

We enjoyed an hour massage of Thai oil massage. After the whole massage, we found out that it was worth $148 per person!!! Super great deal!

We managed to reach the lounge for a quick drink (Soda for me, wine for him) and some canapés.

We received movie vouchers too but decided to utilise on another day as we wanted to nua. Honestly, the bed was extremely comfy! I would like that mattress for my new place!

The next day, we had breakfast at the Club Lounge too.

Nuaed till 4pm (we had opted for the late checkout) and headed back!

Goodbye from #nadskai!

Did we think that it was worth it? Definitely! The massages itself was way more expensive than the whole price we paid for the hotel! I really love such promotions!

I think that we go for so many Singapore Staycations that friends have been asking us how much we've been spending on them! I guess Staycations are really a quick and easy alternative to take a break within Singapore plus we do not have our own place yet (getting our BTO next year!), it is a great way to have some couple time together!

It's a tradition for us to celebrate our birthdays and anniversaries with Staycations in Singapore or Holidays. Since the first year we got together, we've been doing so! We're thinking of where to celebrate my birthday next year! I don't think a trip overseas will be possible due to our leave blocked up for Maldives next year.. so looks like it'll be a Birthday Staycation again! Any recommendations where?

For those who were wondering about Rendezvous Hotel details, here you go!

You've probably read the previous blog post about how Venice captured my heart, here is the continuation including the pictures of gorgeous Venice at night!

When in Venice, you MUST try the Nocciola (Hazelnut) gelato. It is extremely delicious and somehow or rather, Singapore's gelato does not taste the same. Might be the air or something.

IMG_0109

When in Venice, try things like pizza. The italians are amazing with their pizza.

IMG_0100

When in Venice, substitute water for wine. Because wine is cheaper. Look at the pictures below. Wine is served in this plastic jug in a restaurant I went! Water and/or soft drinks are more expensive. I am not a wine person but the whole trip, I was whacking wine.

When in Venice, do buy a mask as it's apparently the signature item there. Do look around for the best deals because seriously, a pushcart and a store could be selling the same item but at huge differences.

When in Venice, try the squid ink risotto.

When in Venice, opt for a seat outdoors. It is extremely calming and relaxing watching people. Or it could be the copious amount of wine that made me feel happy.

IMG_0188

When in Venice, do take the ferry to nearby islands. Burano was amazing.

IMG_0151

When in Venice, do take the time to visit the stores and also the night markets. You might actually find a good deal or two.

When in Venice, DO NOT get tricked into trying set meals that seems too good to be true. Especially if you have a waiter who is extremely pesky and persuasive AND can speak various languages. These places are usually for tourists and you'll be eating cardboard fish, just like we did.

IMG_0264

When in Venice, squeeze on the bridge to take pictures. You won't regret it. Please also remember to take care of your belongings.

And these are the pictures of Venice at night, as promised.

I would definitely wanna revisit Venezia again in future! I hope you've enjoyed this photolog of Venice by night!

Breakfast was at Grill 79, one of the top international hotel restaurants in Beijing. Grill 79 offers a breathtaking view of the Forbidden City and is well-known amongst locals and tourists as a captivating destination for international dining.
