A day @ Resort World Sentosa cum Father's Day Celebration!

Last weekend was a relaxing and enjoyable one as my course have officially ended! All stress and tireness were magically gone! The day started with me and my family setting off to Resort World Sentosa via the shuttle bus service at AMK pick up point! Everyone was queing up and waiting for the bus, but the moment they saw the bus coming, all turn chaos. Some "kiasu" people try to jump queue. To my disappointment, those who jump queue were YOUNGSTERS, whereas those elderly folks continue to move on with the queue. I really feel that parents and school educators should instill morale values like "礼让精神" into their kids when they are young.

The day started well till a mad woman started hurling abuses at a young boy and his mother when he wanted to reserve the bus seats for his father. That crazy woman took it so seriously that she started to hurl abuses straight at the small boy, then throughout the whole journey continued to condem them. OMG~! And she kept talking nonsense non-stop, so loud and clear. Really an asshole who spoils everybody's day manz! 

Anyway, our mood was high again when I reached RWS! All the infrastructures and designs were so lovely and like living in fairytale! Colourful and heavenly! I'm so proud of Singapore! Below are the pics we took! So explore with me... ...

Lunch at Ramen Play ... ...The thrill begins with playing with their poison!!!
Stir-fried chilli chives ... ... tastes quite similar to typical korean side dish, it's actually chives with some chilli seasoning. For me, it's not too spicy. I usually add it into my ramen soup to give it a greeny touch!

Chilli paste ... ... quite spicy but still acceptable for me. I think this is nice, not salty and quite fragrant. Add it into your ramen soup to spice it up!

Garlic chips ... ... not a must for me but will add in some to boost up my ramen soup! Garlic contains allicin, which is known to have anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-oxidant properties, which boosts the body's immune system.

I like the concept of  this restaurant. Dining becomes so much more fun with these little surprises!

Unagi egg set ... ...tastes like typical unagi, does not have a "wow" factor when eaten! But the texture is soft and juicy, goes well with the onions, eggs and sweet sauce. Overall, it's nice but normal.

Sanpou tonkotsu ramen ... ...this is the signature dish highly recommended by the chef. The soup is fantastic...just a sip, the sweet-meaty flavours immediately spreads throughout the palate and lingers in the mouth. The pork is so well-done with the very soft and melts-in-the mouth texture! It's fattening but I can't help but eat it all in including the layers of fat! The egg is cooked to the standard of those in Japan, soft slight watery egg yolk and egg white in the middle. Thumbs up for this signature dish!

Few weeks back after my course ended on the first week of june, I met up with my "sisters" at somerset 313 and we dined at Ramen Play too. That was my first time there. Comparing these two outlets, I think the one at somerset serves a bigger portion. Both services are comparable but the one at RWS has room for improvement coz the staffs there seems to be less observant and unsure of their promotional deals such as credit card promo. Probably becoz they are still quite new. At 313, we also tried... ...

Grilled Takoyaki ... ...they have grilled and fried ones. We chose grilled ones as it's more healthy. This is different from typical takoyaki (usually made from flour and octopus filling). It is made from minced meat, like swedish meat balls! Very good meaty and juicy texture. Complements well with the dried bonito pieces and sweet japanese sauce (like teriyaki sauce)! I highly recommend this dish to u!

Soft Shell Crab salad ... ...I like this dish too not that Soft shell crab have always been my fav! Firstly, the overall appearance is attractive that it boosts my appetite! The "greeny look" makes it a healthy dish. The dressing used is I think some japanese vinegar and some sugar? Tastes sourish and slightly sweet. The soft shell crab is crispy on the outside yet meat remains tender. Saw in pic? Mustard sauce was also added on top which not only adds colour to it, but also complements well with the crispy soft shell crab!
Applause to this wonderful creation!

After lunch, we strolled around the RWS and visited the diffferent hotels there. I like Hard Rock Hotel most as it looks fun and lively! Feel like a rock star when I was there...hehe!

We then took a bus back to vivo city to shop around. Went to my fav place Daiso but din buy anything except paper tea bags =(. Sis suggested watching Toy Story 3! Yeah...actually had wanted to watch it! I particularly like this movie animation becoz it brings back my "secondary school-hood" memories when I was watching Part 1 & 2! Time flies manz! Indeed, Toy Story 3 did not disappoint me. The plot was nice and alot of the scences were hilarious! It's a good animation movie to watch, especially if you are very stressed out coz it will really make you LOL!

After movie, we dined at Kopitiam. Just wanna have a simple meal. That marks the end of Father's Day and my precious weekend! Back to work tmr! That's life?! =D
