Cova @ Paragon, 290 Orchard Road #01-20A/24/25

Citibank Promotion All You Can Eat Dessert! Order one main course and you can have all the desserts for free! I eagerly finished my Salmon Ravioli (fourth picture) and went to the cake display and basically pointed out every type of small pastries and a few of the slices of cakes. And they were all super yummy. It was like a dream come true! Thanks to Eva, the card owner (my friend of course) who invited me.

Salmon Ravioli ($28, service charge and GST excluded), super nice but small portion. Ok though if you are going to have a big big portion of desserts afterward.
Crayfish Tagliatelle ($32, service charge and GST excluded). Eva said it was so-so only.

Durian Mpire

Mini Durian ($3). Very nice, much nicer and worth the money than Durian Premier.

Durian Puff (6 for $4.80). Not bad but sort of predictable.

The Icing Room @ Jurong Point

Don't be deceived by their oh-so-pretty look. Again, they were rubbery. I now come to believe that all roll cakes from The Icing Room are made that way, rubbery and hard, much like leftover cakes from yesterday. Refer to for my previous post on the same case.
Merry Macha ($4.20)
Hazel Dazzle ($5.20)

ION Orchard, 2 Orchard Turn, Singapore

Calvin Klein's Escape ($95). Literally my first love, the one that I feel suited my characters and attitudes the most.

Royce' Nama Chocolate Au Lait ($15), recommended to me by a lot of friends and eventually I am convinced and decided to give it a try. Very nice indeed.

Jennifer Crusie, Bet Me

"'...Your prince is on his way.' 'Right, I’m sure he was on his way but a truck hit him.'"

"Where were all the women gamblers? It wasn’t as if being a woman wasn’t a huge risk all by itself. Twenty-eight percent of female homicide victims were killed by husbands or lovers. Which, come to think of it, was probably why there weren’t any women gamblers. Living with men was enough of a gamble." Minerva Dobbs

"That was one good thing about packing extra pounds, you got cleavage to burn."

"'What have you got against charming?' 'It so rarely goes hand in hand with 'honest'."

"'You’re not by any chance my stepmother are you?''Because that would explain so much.'"

"I was listening to Elvis singing ‘Love Me Tender’ last night, and it occurred to me that if he’d been reincarnated, he’d be about twenty-seven now, and I’m open to younger men. Statistically, the most successful marriages are those in which the woman is eight years older than the man. So I’ve decided to wait for Elvis to find me." Minerva Dobbs

"'What flaws?' 'Of course I have them, but I’ve been on my best behavior with you. Except for hitting you in the eye and attacking you on a picnic table.'"

"We don’t have to chill the wine at home, the atmosphere does it for us. "

"She sighed and picked up the snow globe Bonie had given her for Christmas, Cinderella and her prince on the steps of their blue castle, doves flying overhead. Cal Morrisey would look right at home on those steps. She, on the other hand, would be asked to try the servant’s entrance." Minerva Dobbs

"Men are visual."
