A 'Wet' Singapore IV: Holy, Holy & Spruced Up Siblings
More chatting with C-Mon and Den. He was busy digging information from me regarding the bloggers that I know. Then the subject changed to house-hunting and quirky BF behaviours. Hehe. He was telling us how Den does not like to be massaged. So, I got the green light and gave it a try. Hehe. Den liked my 'touch'! Wakakaka. Wine was brought out and KH served a month-old Shiraz to C-Mon! Goodness. I dunno how he downed that glass of 'vinegar'. The white dessert wine was definitely better. At about 5:30pm, KH and I went out to RedHill MRT to meet my brother. Together, we caught a cab to Spruce at Tanglin Road. American cuisine. My brother was quite stressed about where to bring me. I'm not that fickle le... :P. With some help from www.hungrygowhere.com, we ordered the "Three Dips" for starters. Their bread is quite heavenly especially with the hummus, tuna conserva and salsa. Our mains were the "Roasted Kurobuta Pork Chop" (very tender, fragrant and the miso butter sauce is to die for), "Signature Beef Short Ribs" (another tender number, but I don't quite fancy the sauce) and "Whole Roasted Snapper". Quite a shocker to see an ang moh establishment server the whole fish, bones, head and all. But it was great. Moist and flaky. Goes well with the lemon jam. The table beside us was busy oogling on our dishes before deciding on what to order. This is why I always prefer menus with pictures.
Updated my brother about all the happenings at home. About what I did in Singapore. Talked about work and his dance classes. According to KH, he seemed a bit distant and stressed. Hmmm... I think he's right. But my brother is not one to confide in me. Ended the dinner with a Panna Cotta. That really did the trick. Was so full afterwards. My 'freeloading' BF wanted to pay my brother back for dinner, but of course my brother declined. Hehe. We took the bus back to Queenstown MRT, hugged him on the platform and parted ways. Stopped by Bugis Junction to do some grocery shopping at Cold Storage as I wanted to cook the next day. Grabbed everything in record time and headed home...
P.S.: Den FFK me for Sunday Mass! You owe me dinner!
