Sashimi, Sushi, Japanese Food

Had a chance to go to sushi buffet at Ikoi again. In the afternoon, Jonathan and I were to go for a massage session then to meet Jonathan’s family for dinner. Jamie and Victor were really nice to help take care of the kids and picked them up in late morning.

All dressed up and ready for our massage session. Outfit of the Day – TVD (Versatile chiffon top) and TTR (High Waisted Shorts)

The versatile top is nice for buffet. However, I think I look fat in it and do not do justice to the top. A few days ago, one of Kaiden’s classmates’ mum even asked me if I am pregnant. What a nice way to say that I put on weight. 😦 The top was a bit low so towards the end of the day, I changed the straps to halter neck.

When we reached Subtle Senses, the spa was closed. Not to our surprised cos Jonathan and I had already expected something like this would happen after they closed their Taka branch. Just that we did not expect the closure to be so fast. Did not know what to do, some nice victims called for the police. We left our particulars and went back to Jamie’s house for discussions. Well, Jamie and Victor are also customers of Subtle Senses. Together, we filed a police case and hopefully can get our money back which we very much doubt so.

Nevertheless, we still went on with our Ikoi Sushi Buffet Dinner. Reached Ikoi at about 6.30pm. That place was really packed with people.

Kaitlyn and her ‘shen shen’

The loser signs as explained by the couple, “Lost money, let’s drown our sorrows with wine.”

I think the happiest are the kids.

Kaitlyn got to  drink a can of coke by herself.

Kaiden was grouchy after awoken from his sleep but in the end, enjoyed his Tempura Ebi that he had forgotten about the grouchiness. I think the Tempura Ebi is really good. So tasty that he did not even want to share with me. 🙂

Finally a chance for Jonathan and I to take a picture. See what the kids did. Playing peek-a-boo with ‘shu shu’ who was the photographer….

Finally, a decent picture taken after Gerald zoomed in the lens and with Jamie and Vic’s help to distract the kids.

LOL…. they are having coke, pretending to be adults.

A group photo taken by Kaitlyn with Jonathan’s help.

Before going home, we went to Ben’s and Jerry’s for our dessert. Nice and ‘filledful’ dinner.

A big thank you to Jamie and Victor for footing the bills. 🙂

A Day of Pampering and Treats

It another day. I am so happy that I get to go on a pampering date with Jonathan at Subtle Senses. Subtle Senses used to be in Mosque Street at Chinatown. Recently they took over the existing premise of TrueSpa at Cuppage Terrace. This time round, Jonathan and I finally made it to their new premise for a lazy pampering afternoon.

We were there early so was invited into the lounge area for a cup of tea.

Within minutes, we were taken down the row of rooms. The whole place looks like Karaoke lounge with all the individual rooms. We were in awe when we saw the room the moment we stepped in. The open concept shower area and couple bathtub appeared in front of us. Wondering what will happen when we were soaking halfway and the massage lady pops by. *feeling shy*

The room is definitely big compared to the previous premise.

Jonathan as usual did his massage while I had a facial. This time round, I opted for a soothing facial. Had breakouts when I did the diamond peel and youth retain*** the other round. Clocked another slot for an eye treatment. Beautician said my eye area is really dry and a lot of fine lines appearing. *sad* I think must be due to the late nights of online shopping. LOL

The moment we were done with our massage and facial, we proceeded to a place recommended by Jamie and Victor. Went there a few times but always has to book 1 week in advance, Ikoi at Miramar Hotel. It’s a Japanese buffet. The food is really good. *drooling*

A few complimentaries as well. The salmon in the dish, the seafood soup in a pot (not in picture) and the hotpot salmon soup in foil are all complimentary. My favourite dishes are the fried salmon skin handroll (had 3 of it 😉 definitely a must try), the teriyakki salmon and not forgetting the sashimi in the boat.

Do not be deceive by Jonathan’s facial expression. It’s not that the food is not good. He does not like mushroom. LOL

Check out our satisfied expression. It was really a fullfilling dinner. 😉

In case you cannot find the place, it is at the lobby of Miramar Hotel. Look out for the red lantern. You can call 68873788 to make your booking. Remember 1 week in advance.
