Hao Rui & Raymond came down to Singapore from Malaysia, so Angelina, Jon and I gathered for an early Christmas dinner together at L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon. I’ve heard so much about this place, and this 9 course French meal is definitely the most expensive meal I’ve had in Singapore. Raymond and I thought that our favourite would be the Foie gras custard and the Smoked Eel. I’m so glad that despite Jon – the one food lover who prefers to have some comfort hawker food – enjoys going on a fancy meal once in a while together. He has acquired a picky tongue – which picks up the good and bad about food – since he started cooking/eating a fair bit when he was in Melbourne. That aside, the staff was really warm and welcoming, and even strike a funny conversation with us it didn’t even feel that it was awkward to laugh.

Nonetheless, Jon, Ray and I agreed in unison that we still enjoyed our dining at Vue de Monde back in Melbourne. It’s by far the best fine dining experience ever. Some things in life doesn’t seem worth it to spend on, and you still do. But I guess when you found the right people with similar interest, you’d realised that “You only live once” and wouldn’t mind feeding on bread loafs thereafter. Looking forward to traveling around the world to serenade my taste buds in many unexpected way. x
