Ending September with a sweet post! Now comes the dreadful October, I hope it will be over in no time. October is suppose to be the month where I wear my bridal gown, walking down the aisle with my husband and everything is supposed to be as magical as ever, however it is not going to happen.  October is also a month where so many people are getting married, I will just have to endure, and look through the beautiful happily-ever-after pictures of my friends', and of course giving them my blessings even though nothing works out for me.

Back to food!

I have been seeing lots of this pretty eclairs pictures all over my instagram. Ian, Pauline, Shirley and I wanted to come here on Polling day but it was closed, so finally we came here on a lovely Sunday afternoon.

Cakes delivery @

Tel: +65 62847620

Delivery free for orders above S$50 is in the midst getting its halal certification.

 photo IMG_8040_zpsplb6lqru.jpg

Having cakes on our birthday is a must for my family. The worst thing is, all of our birthday are end of the year, so we will have 3-4 cakes consecutively in the month of October, November and December. Mum was worse last time as she also wants to celebrate our chinese birthdays! Imagine 6-8 birthday cakes during the last quarter of the year. O.O

Everytime we will order a cake from a bakery near us as we don't drive, I don't want to lug the cake and squeeze on buses or train, and worse, some cakes are not suitable to be left in room temperature for very long. We found a new love with yummy cakes and most importantly, order online and get it delivered right to our doorstep. Free delivery some more!

My real life friends or social media friends or even people whom I don't even know, all of them know what actually happened last month when I exposed my ex-fiance and our 3rd party on Instagram. Not going into that in this post of course, but I wanted to thank everyone of them (they may not even read this), all of them are my pillar of support during this difficult time, and I am thankful.
You know, #howru  (it saved my life)

Anyway, my dear gals are so sweet! All of them took leave to accompany for high tea! YIPPEE!!!!!

On a Thursday afternoon, I feel so relaxed that I told them we should do this every month!

Anyway, there are 2 sets to choose from. Basically the difference is only the starters.

Long Weekend Tunch (Buffet) @ Grand Park City Hall

Address: 10 Coleman Street Singapore 179809
Tel: +65 64325888 (for reservations to Indulge at Park)
Email: (for reservations to Indulge at Park)

Grand Park City Hall is not a unfamiliar hotel to me and my girlfriends. We had been here several times to celebrate one another's birthdays. Because usually the birthday girl will treat the other 3 girlfriends and their partners so we feel that the price here is reasonable for the variety of spread on its buffet line. Not too painful for the pockets of the birthday girl :P And my girlfriend even held her wedding here! So its definitely not a new place for me.

 photo IMG_6493_zpseaahb1nt.jpg

Currently, Grand Park City Hall's Indulge at Park (200-seater restaurant) is offering 2 scrumptious weekend buffets:

Long Weekend Tunch (till 28th September 2015)
Time: 12pm to 3pm every Saturday & Sunday
Price: S$45++ Adult / S$22.50++ 4 to 12 years old

Asian BBQ (till 28th September 2015)
Time: 6.30pm to 10.30pm every Friday & Saturday
Price: S$62++ Adult / S$32.50 4 to 12 years old
