Isn’t this just the thing for all romantic tree huggers and organic mamas out there! ‘Chope’ your seats this Saturday night (28 March) at the world’s longest candlelight dinner at One-Ninety at the Four Seasons Hotel Singapore, to mark Earth Hour. (I suppose it’s lights out during dinner, huh?)

How’s it the longest? Well, 35 other Four Seasons properties around the world - from Tokyo to Singapore, Sydney to Mumbai, Koh Samui to Bora-Bora, Prague to Budapest, and Miami to Whistler will be holding a similar event, so you’ll in essence be joining lots of other earth-loving guests for a dinner that circumvents the globe.

Din-din starts at 8pm and Executive Chef Bruno Correa will be serving up a five-course Organic Menu using produce from sustainable farming methods, free from the use of chemicals. What’s even more beautiful? An unbelievably wondrous price tag of $48++!

Binge – Stand and Rejoice!

Yes, the bear is biting and it can be a painful world out there right now, but one must still eat….and drink for that matter. So even as our purses are slimming down faster than our waistlines, the silver lining is, so are the price tags on many meals (and cocktails) around town. What have we found this time? Oooh, bargains aplenty.

Located at Playground@BigSplash, and with as utilitarian a name like Seafood International Market and Restaurant, it is admittedly unglamorous. But the food is good and the restaurant has been a fixture there at Big Splash forever. So with kids or the clan in tow, let’s allow ourselves on occasion to be a little less than absolutely stylish and head there for the a la carte buffet. Why? A spread of 40 dishes served a la minute at a fabulicious price of $22.80++ for adults weekdays and $24.80++ on weekends. Braised mini abalone, pan fried cod fillet, braised sea cucumber with yam, drunken sakura chicken, seafood tom yam, roast duck with sesame sauce, seafood vermicelli with fish gravy, etc. Lots of good food easy that’s real on the pocket.

And the necessary drink? Let’s saunter back to my favourite Pan Pacific Hotel for lots of candy! Lots of dates and numbers, so pay attention. This time, it’s a delicious new deal of 1-for-1 housepours daily at the Atrium from 7-9pm, together with complimentary servings of their signature homemade sausages – absolutely to die for. This lasts until 3 May.

Up on the 4th floor, its al fresco Brunch outlet does a similar 1-for-1 Sundays to Thursdays from 5pm – 9 pm until 28 May. Free nibbles here include their cold cuts. After that, you can show your dining receipt from any of the hotel’s restaurants and get 15% off your foodie buys at The Deli. Make a beeline for the sausages. This bit of lurve lasts until 31 May.

Finally, for weekday lunch, Bistro Senso at The Singapore Flyer has brought their prices down to an exquisite $12 for three courses. How do they do that?? You get a Caesar salad or soup, margherita pizza or pasta with a choice of three sauces, and a dessert of panna cotta with mixed berries or tiramisu. Cheap and with choices too!

THIS WEEKEND - Lots to do -First, "Let's Do Lacroix" and then, "Let's Save The Earth!"

So much to do and so little time, we have two suggestions, one sparkling with fun and the other, sparkling with meaning... read on...

Let's Do Lacroix, Dahlings!

I can already hear the oohing and aahing of fashionistas. Fans of haute couture and plain frumpy folk who live in casual tees and frayed jeans (that’s me) shouldn’t miss this. THIS is the Christian Lacroix Costumier Exhibition: high-octane glamour, drama and fabulicious fashion all rolled into one delicious package at the National Museum.

Expect nothing short of lavish from Christian Lacroix, couturier to the stars, whose flamboyant creations for celebrated theatrical productions will go on display at the museum from Friday, 20 March to 7 June. In Asia for the first time, around 80 spectacular costumes and 60 sketches from the collection of the Centre National du Costume de Scène (France’s National Stage Costume Centre) and from Lacroix’s personal collection will take centrestage in this special exhibition that chronicles the designer’s influences and inspirations in his 20-year flirtation with the theatrical arts. During this period, the haute couture designer, who is known for defining the look of the 1980s with its bright colours and over-the-top embellishments, produced some dazzling costume design work for the ballet, theatre and opera.

While the feted French designer – worshipped by models, fashion journalists and a certain cross-section of society ladies with unlimited dress allowances and a penchant for extravagant outfits – is famous for his catwalk excesses, the exhibition is as much about his talent for storytelling through clothes as it is about mere fashion. Lacroix's inspiration for productions such as Carmen, Othello and Cosi Fan Tutte draw from a wide variety of sources and are at once historical, yet modern.

Whatever the message, the medium promises to amuse, entertain, delight the senses and capture the imagination with its vivid colours, OTT splendour and sartorial magnificence. Just the thing we need in these dreary times, when one more “credit crunch” dollar-saving feature and gloomy economic projection might tip us over the edge.

This is going to be so much fun, I can hardly wait. For this, I will brave being crushed by fervent fashionistas in spiky heels and scary tai tais in multi-coloured leggings. Lose the sensible shoes, slip on those slinky, six-inch stillettos and let’s totter away to Lacroix’s glamourlicious world of make-believe!

Sixty Minutes to Save the Earth

Turn off the lights. Save the earth. If only it were that simple.

Still, one has to begin somewhere, given the dangers of global warming and the perilious state to which we have reduced our planet by mindless over-consumption.

Let’s start with 60 minutes. Turn off the lights for one hour on the evening of 28 March (Saturday) and join MSN, Windows Live and the rest of the world in a quest to fight global warming. Earth Hour, first staged in Australia in 2007, now attracts more than 1 billion people in 1,000 cities worldwide pledging to turn off their lights for an hour in aid of combating global warming.

The time to flick off those light switches is 8.30PM. You could turn in and have an early night, for a change. You could also enjoy that time in various ways. Such as:

1. Plan a romantic candlelight dinner for your loved one. (Tip: Cool foods like salads and chilled soups are best, as they can be prepared ahead of time and you don’t have to sweat over the stove.)

2. Have a picnic with friends and family on the porch, patio, balcony or backyard. Chill out over sandwiches, cake, wine and cheese.

3. Take a step back from the hustle and bustle of life. Sit in the darkness and meditate. Visualise where you want to see yourself by the end of the year.

4. Light some candles, bring out the bath oils and enjoy a good soak in the tub.

5. Have a storytelling session. Sit in the dark and scare each other silly with ghost stories. Or, share your childhood memories and experiences with the kids.

6. Take a walk. Kill two birds with one stone -- get fit and save the environment!

7. Stargaze. Dance in the soft moonlight.

8. Spend some special time with that special someone. What that means is…entirely up to you and your imagination.

To find out more about Earth Hour, log on to MSN or sign up with Windows Live.

Happy In Hong Kong

Tripping over to Hong Kong or living it up over there? We’ve got some updates for you, for good and happy eating. Bon appetit!

CEPAGE by Les Amis

Singapore’s Les Amis Group has just opened its new fine-dining restaurant, CÉPAGE in Hong Kong

Since it’s just around the corner from Central, in Starstreet in Wanchai, we can teeter there in our fabulicious six-inch stilettos, shopping bags in hand and ensconce ourselves in OTT opulence. We know we’ll just lurve their 18th Century French villa look with cutting-edge design, the grand floor-to-ceiling back-lit onyx marble wall, antique chandeliers hand-picked (but of course) and, specially flown in from Europe -- Cocquet crockery, First Series glasses and Laguiole knives. All just to enhance the dining experience. 

Chef Thomas Mayr’s cuisine is light and contemporary, combining the classics with the new. Les Amis Singapore favourites remain on the menu, such as the cold angelhair pasta with Aquitaine caviar, Japanese kombu and white truffle oil (HK$250); and wild mushroom risotto, pan-seared foie gras and langoustine (HK$230). New dishes include carpaccio of live Scottish diver scallop, citrus fruits and Iranian Beluga caviar (HK$540); angel hair, Alaskan crab, chilli Nduja de Monte Poro with lobster oil (HK$340); and Pyrenean milk-fed lamb rack, eggplant caviar, roasted pearl onion and cherry tomato confit (HK$620). 

Apart from a la carte, there are set menus ranging from HK$290 (about S$58) for two courses to a menu degustation of HK$1,320 (about S$260) for a seven-course treat. With over 2,100 labels on their wine list, we could linger at their plush bar after lunch, then totter to the roof top bar for more tipple well into tea time. 

It’s not cheap but it’s Les Amis. Be prepared to fork it out, dahlings!

Moët & Chandon Champagne Evenings 

The high-livin’ champagne lifestyle doesn’t always have to suck the life out of your bank account. Bubbles in moderation will see us through these tough times. 

I’ve heard that Sky Lounge, the 28th floor penthouse lounge at Hotel Jen, is an absolutely gorgeous place to chill out in, with views to die for. I haven’t been there myself, so living vicariously, I will write about it. What’s nice here is that the lounge is exclusive to Executive Jen Room and Suite hotel guests for most of the day. Then, at 8pm, the door’s flung open and everyone else gets to go in. 

Soak up the style, drink in the views and sip Moët with the "Moët & Chandon Champagne Evenings" deal. Available daily from 8pm–1am, two glasses of Moët & Chandon and a selection of canapés go for HK$168+ (around S$33+). See what I mean about bubbles in moderation?

Grazing is quite the thing these days – little bites and drinks in no particularly order so enough of the littlies make up a meal. Good for ladies like us who are big on flavour and variety, but don’t want to suffer the bulge! 

And the drinks are a bonus. For some selective grazing, try the Japanese grill ROKA at Pacific Place, for their weekday happy hour from 3-8pm where selected drinks and snacks are going for just HK$38 (about S$7.50) during weekday happy hours from 3pm-8pm. Nice price, no? I like this sort of thing. Called ‘38@ROKA', the menu includes signature mojitos (like their apple mojito pictured here), wines, beers, snacks and skewers. 

ROKA is also a good family restaurant, so when dining there, keep in mind their bestsellers such as lamb cutlets with hot pepper spices and black cod skewers with gingered samiso, hot from the Robata charcoal grill.

DayNa Decker debuts at Flaming Queen

Get ready for some sophisticated, ultra-sexy and super luxe-looking candles (oops, they are trademarked ‘Chandels’) from American designer DayNa Decker, who makes her debut in Singapore at Flaming Queen, Palais Renaissance.

Who is DayNa Decker? The ex-beauty queen and Ford model, currently based in New York, has launched a range of modern, sexy and luxurious ‘home ambiance’ products that integrate modern innovation and trendy design with an environmental conscience. So, if you are into saving the earth, you can bask in the fact that her yummy products are also eco-friendly.
Her four collections -- Botanika, Flora, Classic and Couture – look good and smell gorgeous, and range in price from S$69 for a 3oz Botanika candle to S$285 for the Couture Diffuser set. Think seduction. 

Judy Millar, the owner of Flaming Queen, highly recommends the brand’s EcoWood Wick™, an innovative new element in candle making, which creates a 'crackling fireplace' effect when the candle is lit. 

The wick is made of organic wood, using a natural   manufacturing process, and the wax used in each ‘chandel’ is made from a special custom clear resin blend.

While you are there, check out Flaming Queen’s other beautifully made and decadently luxurious scents for the home and office, including premium brands like Rigaud, Manuel Canovas, Parks and Linari, the last being one of my personal favourites.

Savour The Sweet Life

In the midst of adversity, the stiff upper-lipped among us will declare that life goes on. And the occasional, well-deserved splurge is allowed despite the general mood of austerity, I think. After all, if no one spends, the economy would grind to a halt and then we would all really be in a whole lot of trouble. Still, there is spending and there is smart spending even when it comes to self-indulgent pleasures. There are some pretty good deals out there when it comes to travel deluxe. We track them down for you:

Fancy-schmancy resorts SALA Phuket Resort & Spa and SALA Samui are offering ‘3 nights for the price of 2’ packages to celebrate Thailand's traditional New Year 'Songkran Water Festival' and the Easter holidays from 3-19 April. According to Thai tradition, for three days from 13 April, celebrants have loads of fun splashing water on each other to wash away bad luck during Songkran. It is a joyful time and everyone is fair game for a good splashing, including and especially tourists, so bring along your sense of humour and have a towel on hand.

During Songkran, resort guests will be 'armed' with their own water-guns and treated to a host of complimentary extras including return airport transfers, daily breakfast, choice of a half-day island tour or 60-minute massage for couples, and more. Orchid garlands and exotic fruit will be presented on arrival, along with Thai perfumes and powders, which are traditional items for the festive period. Ten per cent discounts are also offered for all spa treatments as well as food and beverages, and guests enjoy late check-out till 4pm.

SALA Phuket Resort & Spa, which made it to Condé Nast Traveler’s “Hot List” 2008 of the world's top new resorts and spas, is offering nightly rates from S$495 for a Deluxe Balcony Room to S$894 for a one-bedroom Pool Villa Suite from 3-15 April. But from 16-19 April – and here’s the sweet part – nightly rates go down to S$270 for the Deluxe Balcony Room and S$540 for the Pool Villa Suite.

SALA Samui, voted among the world's Top 10 most romantic resorts and the most romantic in Thailand, has nightly rates starting at S$370. Pool villas start at S$553 a night, with the luxurious two-bedroom Villa Suite priced at S$1,070 during this promotional period.

Silver Linings and Sweet Deals

Times are bad and travellers need incentives to pack up and go, so even ultra-luxurious cruise liner SilverSea -- the Rolls Royce of cruises -- is offering 50 per cent discounts for many of its voyages this year. On top of this, some of the voyages come with free or reduced air programmes plus onboard spending credit. 

Be completely pampered with round-the-clock butler service, free flow bubbly from the moment you step foot into your suite – not ‘cabin,’ mind you – and all meals included in the price.

Tempting indeed. The only problem is, where to: the Arctic or the Antarctic? Nice, Seychelles or Zanzibar? How’s a footloose, fabulicious lady to choose?

Here’s a sampling of the deals on offer:

• Prince Albert II departs Longyearbyen 24 June on a 10-day expedition cruise (#7916), exploring the Svalbard archipelago before concluding in Tromso. Silver Sailing fares start at US$3,247.

• Silver Wind departs 14 May on a 7-day voyage (#2915) from Barcelona to Nice, with calls in Valencia, Corsica, Livorno and Antibes. Silver Sailing fares start at US$3,197.

• Silver Whisper departs 3 December on a 16-day voyage (#4937) from Singapore to Sydney, with calls in Semarang, Darwin, Cairns, Townsville, Whitsunday Islands and Brisbane. Silver Sailing fares start at US$6,347.

• Silver Whisper departs 12 September on a 7-day voyage (#4928) from Istanbul to Athens, with calls in Marmaris, Symi, Volos and Nafplion. Silver Sailing fares start at US$3,497, plus free or reduced air available from select cities.

Declare Your Age, Get That Discount!

Looks like it does pay to be older at the Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore. From 17 March, the good hotel boldly launched an unprecedented age-based programme proudly named “Flash Your Age”.

Here’s how it works: Guests celebrating their birthdays at any of the hotel’s F&B outlets will enjoy a dining discount equivalent to their current age. So if you’re celebrating your 40th birthday, you get a 40 per cent discount off the total food bill up to a maximum of eight persons. 

You’ll also get a birthday cake with compliments from Area Executive Pastry Chef Herve Potus and his team of chefs. What’s more, the hotel ups the deal if celebrants are older, with a complimentary meal for guests celebrating a 100th birthday and a generous rebate for diners older than a hundred!

The only catch is, you have to celebrate at the hotel on your actual birth date to take advantage of the special deal (I.C. required as proof).

THIS WEEKEND - Beijing Blockbuster and Fantastic Creatures

Beijing Blockbuster 
There’s a buzz in the air. Something big is headed this way. Sound the gongs and blow the Horn Resounding. The Kangxi Emperor: Treasures from The Forbidden City – the first blockbuster exhibition in Singapore this year, opens tomorrow 13 March, Friday, at the Asian Civilisations Museum.

Priceless imperial treasures from Beijing’s Palace Museum will be on show, highlighting various aspects of the Kangxi Emperor and giving visitors a rare glimpse into the Forbidden City.

Hailed as one of China's greatest emperors, the Kangxi Emperor, Xuan Ye, succeeded his father, Emperor Shunzhi, at the tender age of eight. Under his reign (1662 –1722), the Manchus consolidated their rule over China and the Chinese empire expanded in an era of prosperity. Xuan Ye’s uninterrupted; 61-year rule makes him the longest reigning emperor in Chinese history, in which the country enjoyed a period of relative stability and wealth after years of war and strife.

The legendary emperor was a deft multi-tasker. Not only was he a man of action – a skilled archer, a shrewd general and clever politician who reunited China after the fall of the Ming dynasty – he was also an accomplished poet, calligrapher and supporter of the arts. A real renaissance man in this day and age. 

Most of the artefacts on show have not been seen in Southeast Asia, and some have not been out of China. The items aim to give viewers a glimpse of the emperor’s interests and his life in the Forbidden City. Among the highlights are his ceremonial armour and helmet: the helmet is decorated with pearls and dragons in gold filigree with Buddhist texts written in Sanskrit, while the armour’s padded segments are fastened by gold loops and buttons. 

Admission charges apply ($8 for adults; free for children aged six and below). The exhibition takes place at the Special Exhibitions Gallery and runs until 14 June. 

Amazing Animals Aplenty!
Also on at the ACM, something that will enthrall young visitors: Fantastic Creatures!, an exciting safari of mythical animals from all over Asia. Curated specially for children, this exhibition which runs until 12 July, introduces children to the symbolism of some of the weird and wonderful creatures from the museum's collection.

Expect a host of colourful delights ranging from fabulous flyers and mythical monsters, to watery wonders like the Makara – an animal made up of parts from a crocodile, elephant, fish and goat. Plus, see if anyone can spot the oldest artefact in this exhibition – a Chinese winged dragon that is more than 2,000 years old!

All wonderful stuff seen through the eyes of a child. Perfect for the young and young at heart. 

The ‘Fantastic Creatures!’ exhibition is held at the Shaw Foundation Foyer and admission is free.

Culinary Miscellany

I have been pottering about a little of late, sampling here and nibbling there. All necessary work to bring you essential information. In these sad economic times, one still has to eat, I say. So if you can’t buy that Bulgari, at least you can still eat out well.

Salitage Wine Dinner at Chalk
One way to eat well without breaking the bank, I find, is to attend some of these vintners’ dinners that wine distributors often organize. I find them rather good value usually and it’s certainly a chance to explore new libations out there.

Next week on 18 March, Chalk, a new restaurant at The Old School at Mt Sophia (which incidentally is my old school!) teams up with Salitage Wines from Pemberton, Western Australia, to serve up a generous seven-course dinner featuring five wines. 

Dishes include tuna sashimi with an Salitage Unwooded Chardonnay 2007, duck rilette with Treehouse Pinot Noir 2005, confit of salmon with Salitage Pinot Noir 2007, pasta with braised lamb or chicken with Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Cabernet Franc Petit Verdot 2004, seared duck breast with Lyonnaise potatoes with Salitage Pemberton Blend 2002, coffee and tea. At $98, this spells plenty good value to me! The owner of Salitage Wines, John Horgan, will be there to speak too.

What’s also interesting to know is that the wine distributors bringing in Salitage is Top Wines, a leading wine company run completely by a bunch of business-savvy women. If you do go for the dinner – and I suggest you do – go say hi to Madeleine, Flora and Eliz. If you like your wines, they are good people to know.

(Having recently dined at Chalk -- run by a Les Amis ‘alumnae,’ offering Italian and French food on its a la carte menu – I must say it is rather good. I would recommend the coq au vin, served in a Chinese claypot (excuse the crab cartoon on the lid), which came nice and tender with a hint of orange; the panna cotta, which was rich and smooth as a baby’s bottom; and the hearty crème brulee.)

Pineapple Cosmopolitan, anyone? Had a dainty little sip at 7Atenine, a lovely bar-cum-restaurant recently opened at the Esplanade Mall. 

Stylish, with semi-alfresco options and lots of shade, it’s a good place to get together with the girls for a meal or an alcohol-oriented, after-work tete-a-tete. Why so? Well, lots of elegant little cocktails for one, and for another, with the St Pierre Group as one of the owners, you can be sure that the food will be interesting. 

Its extensive menu comprises a perky parade of creative, tapas-sized dishes ($7- $18). Not mains, nor appetizers – you eat as much or as little as you want, and smaller portions mean greater variety at one sitting. Must have their signature chilli con carne ($18) made with tender wagyu beef and the wasabi cod ($14) – whimsical lollies of crisp fried cod brandade perched pertly on toothpicks. Also try the tomato salad ($7), which is simple but refreshing. Be warned though: the foie gras hamburger comes with a great slab of foie gras, which, while generous in these cost-conscious times, underscores how too much of a good thing can sometimes be, well, too much.

Durian Confessions

Speaking of too much, durians are in season once again at the Goodwood Park Hotel, which has been famous for its durian-laced pastries since I first started writing…ooh…once upon a long time ago. 

From now until 10 August at The Deli, you can get your artery-clogging durian fix with swanky yet sinful high-end confections like Durian Strudel ($8.80 per slice; $48 for a 30-cm whole log), D24 pulp filling and vanilla sponge layered between crisp layers of pastry; the devilish, dense, live-dangerously Durian Oreo Cake (S$8.80 per slice, S$48 per 750g cake, back by popular demand) with durian pulp sandwiched between vanilla sponge, drizzled with gula melaka syrup and covered with Oreo cookie crumbs (yikes!); and a light and local Durian, Pandan & Coconut Cake (S$8 per slice; S$46.80 per 1.3kg cake), with durian mousse, pandan sponge and coconut flakes. 

Something to consider for Father’s Day in July (if dad isn’t on a diet), or as a decadent indulgence in times of stress. There’s lots more, but limited space won’t allow me to go on…but do note that until 31 March, there’s also the Durian Fiesta Combo 5 ($22, usual price $30) containing a piece each of Durian Strudel, Durian Oreo Cake, Durian Puff, Durian & Crunchy Hazelnut Tartlet, and Durian, Pandan & Coconut Cake.
