Group Therapy Cafe

1 May

Labour Day Brunch was spent at Group Therapy Cafe – a hidden gem at Duxton Road. We settled on this place which none of us tried before, based on good reviews we heard. Definitely didn’t disappoint!

Group Therapy Cafe is on the second floor of a shophouse which might make it slightly less prominent, but a slow walk down Duxton Road will have you there in no time. The place is cosy, and not too large, so the place doesn’t get extremely crowded unlike some other brunch places. They don’t take reservations, but feel free to give them a call to check on the availability half an hour before heading down. We got a place pretty quick!

Poached Eggs (S$15)
This Eggs Benedict, unlike others, were on top of a thick toast. Topped with Smoked Salmon, Gruyere and Hollandaise sauce, my brunch was perfect! The portion was surprisingly filling, but I finished up every bit of it, including the delish Hollandaise sauce.

I will go back anytime just for this (:

Double-stacked Buckwheat Pancakes (S$15)

I didn’t get to try this, but the banana walnut pancakes with strawberries and maple syrup looked amazing and Donna said it was yummy. Next trip here, and I will try it!

Omelette with Swiss mushrooms & Parmesan Cheese (S$18)

Served with bratwurst sausage, salad and 2 wholemeal buns, this meal is definitely a huge portion to try. For a variety of food, I think this makes a good choice.

This cafe had a great ambience, and with the great food, we didn’t regret choosing this place! Prices are so affordable as well, and I definitely wanna come back here to try their sandwiches and desserts. Before that, I wanna check out all the other cafes in the Duxton area! (:

The long weekend

18 Mar

Had a good break of 5 days, and I must say that it felt GOOD to be away from work.

The only dampener was that the boss asked me to head down to office for 1-2 hours on a Friday noon. ):

Anyway, we planned a few things to do like explore some nice place to eat, donate blood, but we didn’t fulfil all.

OH, and we have been gyming religiously 6 times this week! I hope it won’t die off.

Pictures from the previous week!

Addicted with Draw Something. Super tired of it now haha.

More food on a Saturday night! We finally went Sukiya again, this time at Marina Square.

Ate till we wanted to explode, and I think it wasn’t even that much. I swear the age does us no good when it comes to buffet.

Only beef slices.

Photobucket

This time round, we chose the Sukiyaki soup base and the Kimuchi soup base. The latter is appetizing when the sweet Sukiyaki soup gets abit overwhelming.

I was craving so so badly for some chocolatey goodness, so I wiped off one whole Gooey Chocolate Monkey Tart all by myself. Bliss.Photobucket

Long weekend ended way too quickly! ):

Time to prepare for a week’s long of battle ahead.

Congratulations to Joyce and Lionel, the cute penguin couple! First couple to get engaged in the group!

Super honoured to be asked by Lionel to help in his preparation plans (although I didn’t do anything in the end :x), and be part of the special proposal day! It’s my first time helping with such a romantic event…which I feel it’s super sweet.. awwww

Sunday Brunch: Pique ✽ Nique at Takashimaya

26 Feb

Yet another lazy Sunday!

We woke past noon and only stepped out of house at close to 3pm.

Guess who wanted to join us?

Photobucket

Royce was being cranky, blocking our way when we wanted to step into the car, and then climbing in on his own. Usually, he wouldn’t even want to step in, because car rides meant going to the vet.

Anyway! Our plan was to head to Wild Honey at Mandarin Gallery. The place was full, and so we headed to Jones the Grocer to try our luck. 330pm, and both places were packed to the brim! Singaporeans really do eat all day long (:

Last stop, we finally decided to try Pique Nique at Takashimaya.

What we ordered.

Pancakes with Maple SyrupPhotobucket

Unfortunately, the food left us very unsatisfied. The Benedicts weren’t served on english muffins, and the ham was like those cheap ones found in supermarts. The hollandaise sauce didn’t pack a punch at all.

Pancakes were not bad, fluffy and all. Very simple, nothing much to rave about. The hot chocolate with marshmallows saved the day at least (:

Maybe we were extremely hungry and expecting too much. The food was quite disappointing, I must say. Most people ordered the dessert, maybe that’s what they are famous for.

If I ever do come back, I might likely try their desserts instead!

NLB & Steakout!

9 Feb

I finally managed to take a day off just to see the doctor for my nasal thing. Work has been so hectic that I can only choose one day in the middle of the week to take medical leave.

Anyway, on to happier things! We went out for a bit and kinda did an early V-day meal together.

 Nails with blings.

I digress.

Photobucket

Headed to National Library Board to see some exhibitions.

First up, From Books to Bytes – basically the history of NLB in chronological order.

Photobucket

Someone being bored as usual.Photobucket

Next, the main highlight – Stories behind Singapore StreetsPhotobucket

Photobucket

Interesting history of how Singapore’s street names came about, I would highly recommend anyone to check it out. Plus it’s free!

We wanted to check out the Adam Park exhibition but it wasn’t ready ):

We wanted to try Republic of Steak – apparently cheap and good steak.Photobucket

It was replaced by Steakout. Not sure if it’s a change of name only or a change of owner altogether. Photobucket

Photobucket

We both wanted yummy thick steak, so we ordered the Tenderloin (S$27.80). Came with 2 sides which we could select.

Mine in medium rare with baked potatoes and coleslaw. My sides were nothing to rave about. The beef was fantabulous, if I must say. Done perfectly.

M’s Tenderloin in Medium, with corn cob and brocolli.Photobucket

The food definitely didn’t disappoint! Because we weren’t very hungry, we didn’t try any sides or desserts. Besides being well known for their steak, their menu includes sandwiches, pastas, and other main courses. I think we foresee ourselves coming back very often  (:

Rest day was well spent, but it’s back to work tomorrow to fight more battles.
