Binge – Festive Fine Dining That Don’t Bust Your Wallet

December is always a dangerous time. So much festive fare going round, how does one prevent one’s svelte girth from expanding? Plan your feasting, I say! Pick the ones worth expending your calorie quota on and forget the others. For if you must risk putting on a kilo or two this season, might as well ensure it’s worth it. Here are some deals we picked out for good food and good value.

Swissotel Stamford, Singapore – We adore the genius of the food at Jaan Par Andre despite its painful, perforate-me-with-a-fork pretentious name. Food here is fashionable, pretty, avant garde, monstrously clever, perfect for festivities, and totally not-doable in home kitchens. Look out for Chef Andre Chiang’s signature Lemon Sous Vide, lemon foam encased neatly in a deceptively glassy sheet of gelatine, and his other gorgeous dishes. A meal there is quite a roller coaster for the senses – visual, tactile, olfactory and all – plus you get a beautiful view from the top floor of Swissotel The Stamford. For first timers, go for his three course festive set lunch all December (except 25 and 26 Dec) at $58++. From Christmas Eve to boxing day, treat yourself to his 7-course degustation from $240++.

For dinky drinks, keep in mind the Tiger and Heineken Beer Bucket Special at Introbar at the Equinox Complex where a bucket of six bottled beers is going for $30++ throughout December. Upstairs at City Space, drink in the view of the skyline with a bottle of Moët & Chandon Brut Imperial Champagne at $75++ per bottle, and the Rose Imperial Champagne at $95++ per bottle on 24, 25 and 31 December, and 1 January. Enjoy live jazz, too. (Minimum spending of $150 applies for window seats; book early.)

The French Kitchen – Absolutely love it here, for the food, service and value at TFK is always seriously top notch. Time to feast up with their festive three course lunch (7-23 Dec and 27-30 Dec) at $48++, which also comes with amuse buche and sorbet and a choice of dishes for each course. Highlights include roulade of sea trout fillet, foie gras terrine and marinated venison, Angus beef tenderloin, slow-cooked duck leg confit and Champagne Savarin. For more profound indulgence, their four course Christmas Eve Lunch ($88++) and six course Christmas dinner (24 and 25 Dec at $118++) must be among the best value in town for fine dining. The latter features trio of Slow-poached hen’s egg, black truffle coulis and smoked duck breast, guinea fowl and roasted chestnuts, roasted venison saddle and citrus scented baby baba.

7 Magazine Road, #01-03 Central Mall
Tel: 65-6438 1823

Four Seasons Singapore – The hotel’s restaurant One Ninety also offers perfectly good value, plus it surrounds you in totally hushed plushness. For Christmas Eve and Christmas, it’s serving an indulgent five-course traditional dinner (S$98++ and S$136++ with wine pairing) with dishes like Slow Cooked Salmon Royal Fillet with Golden Caviar, Fennel and Clementine Salad; Foie Gras Terrine with Champagne Jelly; Hazelnut Brioche and Caramelized Calvados Apple, Lobster Ravioli with

Winter Truffle Broth, Traditional Roasted Turkey with Chestnut Stuffing, Sole Fillet with Baby Spinach, White Butter Sauce and Herbs and Chocolate Yule Log with Marron Glace, Prune and Brandy Sauce. What’s nice is, they think of the kids, too, rather than keep them as an afterthought. Small people 11 and below have a special 3-course meal at $45++. How sweet is that?!

But if you’re going to be turkeyed out, check out Jiang Nan Chun’s Birds Nest Brunch ($63++) – great for good ole Mom and Grandma (good for skin!)....and if she's been really really nice, maybe even...dare I say it?....the MIL! It’s an a la carte buffet arrangement offering 100 of Jiang‐Nan Chun’s most popular creations including dishes with bird’s nest in unlimited servings. Just be warned there are two seatings – 10:30 am - 12:30 pm, and 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm.

Ristorante Bologna, Marina Mandarin – I always like this restaurant for its lovely Italian food and excellent value. Sadly, it is either forgotten by the fashionable crowd, or mistaken for being highly expensive as it resides in a luxury hotel. But hear this – Ristorante Bologna offers some of the best Italian fare in town, and it is an award winning restaurant, too and well worth putting in your restaurants-to-do list. From 3-23 Dec, it’s serving a festive buffet with choice of a la carte main course ($46++ weekdays) and a four course set dinner at $68++ Monday to Saturday while on Christmas Eve, its six course dinner is priced at $98++. I don’t know what they are serving up, but from experience, it’s always worth every penny and calorie invested.

Breakaway - Tis The Season To Live It Up

Some weeks ago, we wrote about good value Christmas stays in Hong Kong. (See the story Now, we’re casting our envious eyes on luxury Christmas stays all around the world. If you can afford it, why not?...After all, it’s good for the soul to pamper our scintillating selves a little after a tought year and before the grind of the new year when it starts (big sigh all round!) all over again....

Claridge’s, London – If you’re stuck in London over Christmas, be warned that the entire city comes to a complete halt. Not fun. And since you’ll have absolutely nothing to do, you might as well bury yourself in luxury at Claridge’s over the two crucial nights of Christmas Eve to Boxing Day. The ‘Claridge’s Timeless Christmas’ two-night package (£865 or S$1,968 per person, 24-26 Dec) checks you into a Superior King room where you get traditional mince pies, stolen and mulled wine on arrival, pre-dinner cocktails in Claridge’s Bar and a five-course Christmas Eve dinner. Each guest gets an overnight stocking filled with edibles, then wake up on Christmas morning, to a full English breakfast followed by a horse-drawn carriage ride through Mayfair with hot chocolate and marshmallows. Christmas lunch is an eight-course menu. You get a late check out on Boxing Day, with souvenirs of a Claridge’s Christmas pudding and a WWF “Help Save Me” fluffy polar bear or penguin to take home. Fashionistas need to note that the 112 year old hotel is also decking its hall with a Christmas tree by John Galliano for Dior, with sparkling leaves and orchids in silver, white, blue and crystal.

The Opposite House, Beijing – Just checking into this hotel automatically makes you uber-slick and chic. Auntie here needs some of that injection. What’s more, the hotel’s ‘A Tale of Two Houses’ package, available till 31 August next year, ties up with GREEN T. HOUSE Living, the ‘coolest bath house in China’ so by the end of your stay, they disgorge you a pampered, transformed, cool-to-bits, shopped out, massaged to smoothness and glammed to overflowing new woman.

The package of minimum two nights’ stay at The Opposite House includes a four-hour GREEN T. HOUSE Living spa experience for two, consisting of a scrub, bath experience, hydrating facial, face massage and two-hour '2-hands' massage, followed by a green tea-inspired lunch. With rates starting from RMB 7,688 for two nights in a Studio 45 room, The Opposite House throws in transfers between both houses in a Maserati Quattroporte (ie. super fancy car), including a breakfast for two, complimentary mini-bar and wifi, and unlimited access to workout and pool facilities, as well as flexible check-in/check-out times. The 99-room Opposite House is located at The Village in Sanlitun, ground zero for shopping and dining in Beijing.

Buys - And You Thought You Had To Go Overseas To Buy Stuff Like This…..

The closer it gets to Christmas, the more ferocious the Orchard Road crowds become. Thanks to cyberspace, we can shop online. Here are some lovely online stores which offer gorgeous stuff at pretty good value. (And you probably thought you had to go overseas to get your hands on stuff like this!) So turn on your computer and shop local!

Girly Treats – I came across The Little Happy Shop when they were doing a ‘roadshow’ at my suburban haunt a while ago. They bring in the most delightful little dinkies which make perfect little gifts for girls both big and small. They’ve got a lovely range of Shinzi Katoh items such as tote bags, notebooks, pens, card holders, mugsets, aluminium bottles and schedule planners.

They’ve also got cute Elmer and Maisy Mouse lunch boxes by a French company called Petit Jour, which also does The Little Prince (le petit prince) cardboard suitcases, nad plenty of other luxe stocking stuffers for the season. You can either get them delivered or pick them up in Holland Village. Shop and get more details at

Quality Games & Toys – If you’re looking for wholesome, good quality games for the kids, The Beehive stocks plenty of award winning board and card games for kids 3 years and up from good U.S. brands like Gamewright, Discovery Bay, Gambit, etc, mostly from the USA. These are not the usual suspects you’ll find in Toys R Us. Instead, they are unique, quality stuff that you can select according to age or even learning value, and at very reasonable prices too. Delivers within 3-7 working days. Shop at

Funky Decals & Decor - I was hunting around for some wall decals lately and stumbled upon a number of local online shops selling and even customizing these things. Apart from going crazy and buying them up to refresh you room, I figure they make nice gifts too, especially if you know your giftee’s taste well enough.

For elegant wall decals with lots of nature and birds and flowers, you’ll like – very ID and ‘atas’ looking. Their patterns come in lots of colours for you to choose from and you can get quotes customized too. They even have Christmas themed decals too for the season. ('It's Xmas Time decal pictured left, S$45.)

But if you like something more playful and bold, I’d go to for more lighthearted decals – great for kids and the young at heart. Yes, they also have the elegant floral decals, but I like the fun ones better – like coloured bookshelves, a treehouse with quirky characters, aliens and odd creatures (for the kids of course!). Shops like Ameba, Anthropology and Epitome carry some of their decals, but the online store would be the place for the widest range. Winkplay also customizes decals, and can turn your favourite photo into a huge decal too, if that’s your thing.

Buys - Bag Lady - Part 1

You can’t resist a good bag? Nor can we. We share the few new beauties that have emerged this season.

Chloe launches the “Christmas Paraty” (yes, that is ‘party’ spelt incorrectly and on purpose). This emblematic model for the brand at HK$16,170 is a limited edition for Christmas 09. Created by Hannah Macgibbon, the bag has a black velvet interior and sophisticated details like a detachable dark velvet pompom inlayed with gold rivets and outlined with a gold chain inspired by the “fleur’ handbag. Metallic bronze leather is used on the underside of the black handles and this subtly outlines an inside pocket. A discreet gold metallic ‘Chloé’ logo enhances the front of the handbag. See:

Tods launches two bags: the Pashmy Shoulder Bag for women in vibrant colours with striking art deco style brass metal chain handle and a Men’s Pashmy Bag which is utilitarian and light weight with a central leather band in different striking colours. Both bags are HK$6,700 each. See:

Chopard also launches The Mini Caroline line of handbags which promise to shield your personal effects from the frosts of winter. The natural look of reversed sheepskin and brown leather allow the fine details of the Mini Caroline to emerge, such as the small heart with floating diamonds that adorns the clasp. S$2990. See:

Chanel also launches their Coco Cocoon fronted by Lily Allen. Reversible and made in puffy leather, this one reminds me very much of a cushy camping pillow or sleep bag. Quite a difference from the usual Chanel style but I like the fun that these piece adds. Although I have to say that I have already seen the rip offs hit the street markets in Mongkok. I am sure Coco would not rest in peace. See:

WEEK 6 Gift Guide - Get A Hamper

When the word 'hamper' comes up, I automatically think "laundry" or "tins of abalone, bottles of health tonic and cheap wine". Today, the word 'hamper' has definitely come a long way and even the chi chi are getting in on the act, in a six-star style, of course.


The Link Home has a beautiful hamper offering this year called ‘A Little Something Special’ that offers gifts from champagne to sublime keepsakes. Look out for the Diptyque range of creams, candles and room sprays which The Link exclusively retails, wellness gifts including diffusers and scented sachets, gifts for the gourmet hostess and the wine connoisseur.

Tea Hostess Set 

Wine Connoisseur Gift Set 

Expect each hamper to be exquisitely selected and beautifully styled. Like what you see, call Zach at at tel: 6736 0645. Discounts apply for bulk purchases of above 5 sets.


Set to infuse the Christmas spirit, the TWG Tea Salon has two lovely offerings. Take a look at their World Voyage Tea Set and Red Christmas Tea Set, both designed to delight the palate and warm the heart.

The World Voyage Tea set at S$120 is housed within an elegant box and sleeve enclosing six petite TWG Tea caviar-sized tea tins, each filled with a festive collection of fine teas (50g each).

Flavours to be enjoyed in this set are the Pomme Prestige Tea, an alluring black tea suffused with the lively aroma of fragrant apples, French Earl Grey, delicately infused with ripe citrus fruits and deep blue cornflowers, Okayti Prestige, a bold, aromatic darjeeling, the Alexandria Tea, a brilliant mixture of green teas, punctuated with patent nuances of mint and Mediterranean spices. Paying homage to Singapore is the Singapore Breakfast Tea, an intricate, natural blend of green tea, black tea, rich vanilla and rare spices and the Red Christmas Tea, theine-free rooibos tea perfumed with a festival of flavours and holiday spices. This festive blend promises a wonderful assembly of rich and full flavours to be appreciated and enjoyed amongst family and friends.

The Red Christmas Tea (50g) is also sold separately, beautifully packaged in its own gift box at S$22. Available from 1 December at the TWG Tea Salon and Boutique at Republic Plaza, Takashimaya Department store and ION Orchard.
