Early Valentine's Day in Katong

Posted by Dawn at Monday, February 13, 2012

Went on an early Valentine's date with hubby after work today. Decided to go 112 Katong, the new mall to take a look.

Moreover, since I grew up in that area, I have been looking forward to revisit the familiar surroundings again. Whenever I go Katong, it reminds me of the times I spent growing up in the swimming pool at Chinese Swimming Club, Amber Road. Remember taking the public bus to go for my trainings, going for dinner with my family after trainings, visiting Katong Mall with my mum, eating often along the road etc etc. Great memories...

Katong has this old charm which I am in love with...I am not sure if it is the nostalgic feeling, but it sure feels special visiting the place again and checking out the new mall which has many interesting shops in it!

Had Japanese Pasta and Pizza at Yomenya Goemon for dinner.

Food quite decent but probably wont go back there again as there is nothing too special about it.

After dinner, did some shopping before walking out of the mall for some more food! Bought the famous Katong rice dumplings, Kaya and sambal prawn rice rolls from Kim Choo Kueh Chang.

Then we went back to the mall for ice cream at Marble Slab Creamery. Strange enough, the first time that CT and I had ice cream from Marble Slab Creamery was in 2005 when we were staying in Mobile, Alabama. It was near our apartment. So we would walk or drive out at times for it.

Here's the photo taken in 2005!
And here's the one in Singapore in 2012!
Though it was a short date. We had a good time eating and simply spending time together. Will definitely be back again..maybe with our children as they have a water playground on the roof top of the mall!

The next day on Valentine's Day, CT surprised me with this on the bed.

Sweet and simple gift..was very touched as its not about the amount in a gift, but the small gesture and effort that I saw touched me and reminded me once again why I married CT. Thanks dear for being a part of my life. I love you.
