6th Wedding Anniversary

Posted by Dawn at Sunday, August 08, 2010
Celebrated my 6th wedding anniversary at the hotel which we had our wedding dinner in. We stayed for a night together with the kids. How time flies..back to this hotel with 2 kids after 6 years.

We first had lunch at Golden Peony Restaurant (award-winning Cantonese Restaurant) in Conrad Centennial Hotel.


We felt really uncomfortable when we stepped into the restaurant as the ambience and decor seemed too high class to bring young kids. Its not any regular Chinese Restaurant like Crystal Jade but, I would say, its even more posh than Hua Ting Restaurant in Orchard Hotel.

The dim sum that they serve is so exquisite. Fine dining style. Most of the dishes came in individual portion.






Even the xiao long bao came in individual portion.

Now, dont think that this is the usual size steamer with 6 xiao long bao inside...


It's actually a miniature size bamboo steamer.


With only one xiao long bao in it for each person.



That's probably fine dining for you- small portions, highly priced and makes you still hungry. That's why after ordering about 6 dim sum dishes, we still went on to order fried rice, seafood hor fun as well as fried mee sua with tiger prawns just to fill our stomach.





The food tasted really good, but its too highly priced. A plate of fried rice for maybe 2 pax costs us $20 over dollars. An individual portion would costs about $10-$12. Its madness!

In the end, we spent about $40 over per person for lunch. Oh well..

After that, we checked into the hotel.

The first thing I usually do when I reach the hotel room each time is to jump on to the bed. And that was exactly what my kids did!



After settling down, we went for a swim at the hotel pool.


And of course, the kids also looked forward to the toilet bath tub where they can take a bubble bath and play in there!


We then went out for dinner at Modesto's at Orchard Parade Hotel. I wanted to have good Italian pizza and pasta.



We ordered a kids meal- carbonara with ham, wood-fire proscuitto pizza as well as squid ink pasta with seafood.






The crust of the pizza was nice and crispy while the pasta was excellent. So light and tasty!

The kid's meal came with apple juice and ice cream which the adults ended up eating and drinking! No complains.



After dinner, we walked around for a short while before heading back to the hotel. Didnt linger too long as Caleb was having a fever.

The next day, we went to Wendy's for breakfast


I wouldn't recommend coming her for breakfast. Didn't taste nice at all. But if your curiosity gets the better of you, try it but don't regret it!


After breakfast, we walked around before heading back to the hotel to pack and check out. Though the kids were with us, it was still enjoyable celebrating our wedding anniversary.
