qiuuing A 全家福 photograph of the whole family taken yesterday. Initially I was wearing a cheongsam but it didn't go with the blue theme my family adopted. My concession was to change to a red dress so I don't look overdressed!
By the way, congrats to @norezzjustbake for winning my #greenpeacookie #qiuuinggiveaway! I had a really hard time deciding and even got my family to vote for their favourites. Thank you everyone for participating.
Have a great time visiting and for those not celebrating the lunar new year, enjoy the long weekend!

qiuuing Milo Dinosaur OTT Milkshake ($16). Not as over the top as Banana Nutella or Old School, but pretty decent. Next on my list is their Tim Tam OTT Milkshake.
Too bad it couldn't make up for the tough and tasteless Striploin and Fries ($22) I had. Even my extremely liberal dousing of ketchup couldn't save that. If only the interesting main of Chicken Lemak Chilli Padi Pasta was available.

qiuuing Omakase meal at Teppei Restaurant, $80/pax. We lost count of how many courses we were served. Each dish was as delicious as the last. Really impressed!
Be warned, this place is very small and you have to make a reservation. There are two seatings, one at 6.30pm and another at 8.30pm.
You will walk away full and extremely satisfied.

qiuuing First Lohei with the family at @dintaifungsg. It seems like a #dintaifungsg kind of day! The toppings here are kind of unique. Instead of salmon, we had unagi, crispy taro and crispy salmon skin.
Note to self, never eat Din Tai Fung on weekends, we waited 1 hour and 15 minutes for a table and food to be served!

qiuuing Finally managed to try Creamier ! Every time I try to make a trip there, it's too crowded to even go in. Other than having two of their signature flavours, Earl Grey Lavender and Sea Salt Gula Melaka, we had their waffles with Strawberry Lime Sorbet and Orange Cranberry Vodka. Now I can see what the hype is all about. 2w

qiuuing Introducing Sesapea, the crunchiest of all the @greenpeacookie family as yet! This black and white sesame green pea cookie is roasted perfectly, so it lends a crunchy texture to the cookie. It's so good that I'm finishing this bag way before CNY! 2w

qiuuing Couldn't decide which Japanese restaurant at Turf City to have for lunch so we settled for Restaurant Hoshigaoka by JP Pepperdine, as their lunch sets are more affordable.
My Saikoro Steak set costs ($16.80) and it was the only hit for lunch. Mum's Kara Sake Kama set was overly salty and dad's Bara Chirashi took a very long time to serve.
Also, the cacophony of two different music playing, loud chattering and difficulty getting attention of wait staff will make this probably my one and only visit.
