We took a Taxi to Dampsey Hill block 10, We wanted to walk around before we decided what to eat. We remembered we saw a Thai restaurant Tawandang on the way to block 10. We asked a waiter of Don Quijote for direction. He told us it was very far. So we sat down at Don Quijote. And it turned out to be quite a nice ambience, , tapas and drinks.

After Jessie's recommendation, Ian's wife Sami wanted to try Mellben's Crab Bee Hoon. Jessie was in Australia but through What's App, she advised us to go to Mellben's Toa Payoh Branch as it was supposed to be less crowded.
It was true there was no crowd. It was closed for renovation.
We then drove up to AMK. By the time we arrived, it was already 9+pm.
However, we still have to queue for a table and waited for food for an hour.
Sami loved it very much, she finished all the crabs and dried up the soup.

It's Ian's 60th BD. He wanted to buy me a dinner at a nice place. However, as he did not book in advance, he couldn't get a decent place. I managed to make a reservation for him at Gattopardo of Fort Canning Hotel. We took a Taxi from Shangri-La to Fort Canning. On the way up, the sight of the Colonial style Hotel really impressed Ian and Sami. A good start with good service and food, it turned out to be a wonderful night.

Came to Quayside Isle Restaurants @Sentosa Cove because I had read about it but had not been here. Since we were going out with Ian for a meal, it was a good opportunity for us to check out this place.
Weather was really nice as it was just after a rain. We were lucky to have a Chrysler Taxi waited for us in front of Shangri-La Hotel, giving us a comfortable ride all the way here.
We walked around at Sentosa Cove and decided to sit down at the most crowded restaurant, Brussels Sprouts. This place is known for its Belgian Beer and Mussels.
Yes, we enjoyed the food, and the service was good too.
After that we moved next door to Sabio by the Sea, Tapas & Grill to have our second round of drinks and Tapas.
It was a lovely night.

Very disappointing night. Ian and I have both written a review each in tripadvisor.com.
'Noise and sound ruin the ambience. At our table near the window all we could hear was the loud bass from the speakers from the balcony bar. The so-called "manager" avoided our many requests we made to the staff to come and talk with us....'
However, the food was good.
