Beautiful Hair = More Selfies!

I always walk out of Salon De Choix with added confidence.
And that's because I know I look good with amazing hair.
And that was what I felt after seeing how my hair was styled by Chester and Alvin.

We shouldn't let such beautifully-styled hair go to waste right??? :p

And who remember those days when taking selfies
were better known as 'camwhoring'?

I still remembered how my older blog posts had tons
of camwhore photos. Those were the days! Haha! :p

1-for-1 Promo: The Entertainer x The Pelican

The Pelican bird, as mentioned on this website, is said to be a symbol that holds great affinity with seafarers who would find their way back to land after a long voyage to celebrate their homecoming. And at The Pelican Seafood Bar and Grill, the restaurant aims to provide a comfortable and welcoming setting for their diners.

Located at One Fullerton, The Pelican has an indoor seating area, as well as an alfresco deck where a DJ spins lounge music, and with a splendid view of the Marina Bay Sands that is directly opposite, across the river.

If you do recall my blog post back in May (Otherwise, click HERE to read), where I introduced and shared on the perks of The Entertainer app, well... The Pelican is one of their dining partners. This means that if you have the app, you will be able to get a 1-for-1 main course when you dine at The Pelican. And of course, in many other food establishments as well!

Just to share with you, I did visit The Pelican for dinner once, also in May. I was around the area that evening, and had no idea where I should have dinner at. Hence, I simply took out my phone and accessed The Entertainer app, to locate nearby restaurants (Wonderful feature, I must say! For those "I-don't-know-what-or-where-to eat" and "I-don't-have-craving-" moments, especially!). I decided on The Pelican as I thought a view of the Marina Bay area would be wonderful.

And of course, I used The Entertainer app to enjoy the 1-for-1 main course promo.
This was the staff handling the redemption process.

This was what I had during my own visit in May.
If you had followed me on IG and seen the photo that I posted (and my comments), then you should know what I felt on the food and service at The Pelican back then.

I would say, the only good thing about dining here was the fact that I was able to catch the MBS laser light show from the alfresco area where I was sitting, while enjoying the music that the DJ was spinning. Photo below of the MBS and its laser light show was taken when I was having my dinner at The Pelican back then in May.

But then again, I visited The Pelican recently,
for the second time as I was there to attend an event, 
kindly invited by the wonderful Entertainer team! :)

 photo DSC06946_2.jpg

We had an assortment of tapas food served to us, and it was like a never-ending flow of it. I love oysters, hence I was delighted that it was served  to me over and over again! 

 photo DSC06966_2.jpg

 photo DSC06965_.jpg

This was also served to us... 
Don't know what it was. But it was nice.
 photo DSC06958_.jpg

See the photo below. Yes, that's me. 
But don't focus on me... Look at that glass of drink on the table. 
That is what I am going to share with you about. Read on!

The Pelican has an August promotion whereby other than the one complimentary main course that  you will get when you order a main course, Entertainer members will also get unlimited Belvedere cocktails. So, drink to your heart's desire! Just don't drink and drive!~ :p     **SEE PHOTO BELOW**

We had free-flow Belvedere cocktails to drink during the event!

Usually, there are only 3 vouchers per merchant that one gets per subscription account on an annual basis. But one thing that I like is that The Entertainer will team up with some of its partners to offer different promotions every now and then. And it is an additional bonus voucher.
(See picture below, spot the trophy? That's the additional voucher and there is a time limit to it). 

 photo b7f63dd6-69d4-4138-b2db-f9c66b4bfc04.png

Also, if you have utilised a voucher from the merchant, it will show on the screen as 'Already Redeemed'. Hence, in my case, you can see from the print shot above that I have two remaining vouchers to use at The Pelican until the year end, as well as a bonus voucher that I can use till 01 September 2014!

It was the best day to hold the event by the Marina Bay
as there was the full dress rehearsal for the (then) upcoming
National Day Parade and we could see the fireworks from The Pelican!
What a strategic location!

Instead of standing by the Bay, I could sip my Belvedere cocktails while seated comfortably and watch the fireworks display.

And this is an estimation only.
Because the app shows an automated saving amount based on the average menu price..
For example, it was reflected that I saved $29.33 when I dined at LeVeL33 last Thursday.

So... If you ask me if this app is worth it to fork out initial money for, I will say YES, YES, YES!!!

Review: Bodacious Bar & Bistro

The word 'Bodiacious' (bəʊˈdeɪʃəs), as per the Oxford Dictionaries site, means excellent, admirable or attractive. It is also perhaps an amalgam of the two words - Bold and Audacious. And in the case of the recent place which I have visited during an afternoon, I would very much love to say that its name, Bodacious Bar & Bistro, was very befitting for them.

 photo DSC07206_.jpg

As much as how Biomedical science findings can be bodacious, a game-changer, or even life-changing, the Bodacious Bistro is located in the area where international research and development of biomedical science takes place - Biopolis (Address mentioned at end of blogpost).

The Bodacious Bistro is the brainchild by the same guys that opened the Long Black Cafe (just across the road). I had lunch at the Long Black Cafe (Friend took me there as he was friends with the owner, and I loved the coffee there) sometime in 2012 if I remembered correctly. I had a short chat with the the owner back then, and was really impressed with the coffee.

 photo DSC07206.jpg

Entering into the bistro, I was greeted by the Bodacious staff, and since there were not many people at the time I was there, I could freely select my desired seats from the plentiful seats that were available (both alfresco and indoor = 130 seats). There were the coffee tables and couches , bar tables and stools, communal tablem etc. And of course, I chose the luxe-looking dark brown leather couch at the corner. 

 photo DSC07208.jpg

I simply loved the whole dark cum industrial chicness of this place. It is simply a very cosy place to bring your Significant Other, or to have a gathering with your bunch of close girl friends. For me, I was glad to spend this special afternoon with my dear Sis.

 photo DSC07209.jpg

My sis, despite her preference for tea than coffee, is always game enough to try out new cafe or coffee places with me, where she will usually order tea. Well, glad she likes her tea, as that meant I got to have my ten-second "Oh my god... So interesting!" gushing moment when her Tea Forte's Honey Yuzu came in this pyramid-shaped silk infuser with a leaf on top! CUTE RIGHT?

What drew me to this place was that I discovered that this place serves CHURROS! My love for churros, also known as Spanish fritters, came about during my younger days when I frequently treated myself to the churros at the old Heeren (Who remembers it??). The churros at Bodacious were coated with sugar and came with the chocolate dip (which I felt that it could have been thicker). But overall, it was chewy and delicious.

Selfie time!

View from where I was sitting.
I liked how I could have an overview of the bistro from where I was sitting.
And the power point was just beside me, for me to charge my phones haha!
Otherwise, you can also charge at where that guy in the photo below was standing. :p
 photo DSC07258.jpg

Check out the Beer section at Bodacious!
And there are the unicycle seats too! Don't worry, it's fixed firmly.
You can dine in peace without worrying that you need to balance yourself while sitting on it. :p
 photo DSC07260.jpg

I like the signs actually. Or rather, the friendly staff who
posed instinctively when they saw my camera! Haha!
Signs were like no-brainers to indicate the coffee preparation and cashier areas.
I likes the whole bright and bulb design of the signs.

If you ask me if I will visit again, I will say yes!
For I want to try the breakfast menu,
and ESPECIALLY the fatty duck confit (maybe for dinner).
And yes, the coffee is good.

Delicious // Bodacious
