On my next trip to Singapore, my brother invited me to dinner. Italian this time, his all time favourite. Dined at Trattoria Nonna Lina on Cantonment Road. The restaurant is named after the owner's Grandmother, Lina. Great food. Loved the spicy crab penne and the tiramisu is a must-have. My brother likes to gauge the quality of an Italian restaurant by ordering the panna cotta. Their rendition of that classic dessert passed with flying colours. Do give the restaurant a try when you're in that neck of the woods.
As I was getting ready to go out for a mall crawl on Saturday, I wished Tater good morning. Told him I planned to check out the Christmas decorations around City Hall. As luck would have it, he was free to join since his lunch date was cancelled. Following KH's suggestion, I went to Raffles City first. Not much to see except some giant Christmas baubles. Tater was oozing patience following me on my aimless photography session (ended up with nothing much to show for). Stopped for a coffee break at Starbucks. While we were sipping Gingerbread latte, I kept seeing glimpses of weirdly-dressed kids. Finally dawned on me that they were cosplayers. Followed a few of them to Suntec Convention Centre. Turns out the Anime Festival Asia was being held there over the weekend. A major event compared to what I saw at Bugis+ previously. But the crowds made it much more difficult for me to take clear shots. But still, I have attached a vomit of pictures in this post. Can't recognize most of the characters. Would appeciate some help there. Loitered till two. Didn't realize the time. Amazingly, Tater didn't go into black face mode.
Rushed to find lunch at Raffles City before we collapsed from hunger. Tater had a hankering for Thai
