Review: Novotel Clarke Quay’s Special Seafood Buffet

I’d give up every kind of food, except seafood. I’ve been relishing all kinds of seafood ever since I can remember. My parents tell me I used to enjoy fried fish and prawns more than candy. And to tell you a secret…I still do! So you can imagine I was mighty excited when Novotel Clarke Quay in Singapore invited me to try out their special, limited period seafood buffet at The Square restaurant.

From April 6 to May 26, 2018, The Square is serving up a fabulous seafood buffet. And I can’t wait to tell you all about it. For starters, I love buffets. They’re a total value for money and you get to sample so many dishes. This one, in particular, is a steal as it features several expensive and exotic seafood.

Recipe: Super Garlicky Oatmeal with Spinach

Ever since 2017, my life has been a series of firsts. And well, for lunch today I made my first savoury oatmeal recipe and damn it was gooooood.

I’ve always been oddly reluctant to try oats mainly because as a lactose intolerant human I cannot stand the idea of packaged sweet oats with milk powder. Totally gives me the heebie-jeebies.

Now I’ve had a big fat packet of plain, no flavour instant oats sitting in my pantry looking pretty for two months. We picked it up because it’s a healthy choice but for some odd reason, I always thought making oats without milk would be hard and might taste blaah. I’ve been trying to get used to drinking soy milk, trying being the keyword, and thought one day I’ll have sweet oats like regular people.

But today for lunch, I thought let’s give this thing a try for fun when no one is watching.

So I looked up a few recipes, saw how simple it really was, decided I’m pro at this and winged it. And I’m kinda glad I did. This recipe turned out so yummy and tasty. And it was so ridiculously quick and easy to make.

I’m so stuffed right now I can barely move. It’s been over 4 hours since I ate lunch now and I feel so full. I didn’t even need to snack at 4pm!

Journal: Stirred & Fried

I most genuinely don’t see the point of cooking for hours and days just for the food to disappear in a matter of minutes. The impermanence of it all is scary to me and mighty unmotivating. It’s especially daunting now that I’m taking extra efforts to make our lives healthier and cleaner.
