Lawry's : A December to Remember

With the festive season around the corner (or for some, has already started), it's time to feast it up with good food! And there's no better way to usher in this yuletide with good steak! Turkey after all, is quite overrated.

At Lawry's this festive, you can be assured that you'll be feasting on the right dishes! Their affordably priced 4-course set, A December to Remember, starts you off with The Famous Original Spinning Bowl Salad and an Appetizer Trio that showcases a Crunchy Herb Crumbled Oyster, Oven-baked Truffle Wagyu Beef Pithivers and Foie Gras with Thyme Gelee. The starters were a joy to pop (pretty bite-sized except for the Foie Gras), without filling you too much so you can antipcate the mains that they have to offer. I must however, applaud the geneoristy of their Foie Gras, which came in a decent cut in terms of thickness - definitely one that will leave you pretty satisfied.

Of course moving onto the mains, you are going to expect Lawry's classic Sigature Roasted USDA Prime Rib of Beef. You can however, also opt for the Pan-fried and Baked Cajun European Seabass and King Prawn - a seafood option if you don’t take or fancy beef, or have had too much red meat for this festive already. The Prime Rib of Beef as usual, comes stunning with doneness of your choice, served alongside US Idaho Mashed Potatoes, Yorkshire Pudding and Whipped Cream Horseradish with a choice of Creamed Corn, Creamed Spinach or Buttered Peas.

To end off the meal, you will be treated to sweet ending with the Chocolate Yule Log Cake with Macadamia Nuts Ice Cream or Strawberry Shortcake with Rum Raisin Ice Cream. I preferred the latter because I'm not exactly the huge fan of chocolate. The desserts aren't a lot to shout about, but if you're not fussy, they will satisfy and fix that sweet tooth of yours.

Priced at $128++ per pax and $218++ per pair, the prices aren't exactly the most wallet-friendly around town, but is in my opinion "worth the buck" for the quality of meat,ingredients and dining experience you are going to be getting. They also run a Christmas Eve Jubilee Dinner available on 24 December and a Holly Jolly Christmas Lunch or Dinner on Christmas day itself.

You Just Got Bloomed : A Better Florist

Who doesn't like receiving fresh blooms? Perfect for any time of the year and for any occasion, it's always a nice gesture to send flowers to someone who is important to you. I do that for Valentine's, Mother's Day and some birthdays.

I like how A Better Florist has makes it super easy to send flowers these days just with a few click - ordering made simple and they make sure your blooms reach your recipient on time and fresh for that insta-worthy shot!

I picked out this bouquet from their collection of Singature Blooms that they have to offer . The Emilia features an assortment of hand-picked and carefully put together roses and lilies, wrapped up in elegant floral paper and adorned with a ribbon and rustic string. They also include a personalized card if you have a special note for that special someone, and even a care card on how to take care of your blooms!

The fresh bouquet lof flowers lasted almost a week in my room. Definitely one of my top choices when I need to send over some floral love the next time! Head over to and put a smile on someone's face.
