I Am ONE Year OLDER!, The Fullerton Edition
So after resting our legs at the Marina Bay Sands, we decided to take a cab down to Marina Square ‘cos we realised it’s really a long walk from one end of the Helix Bridge to the other. And since we walked the wrong direction in the Marina Bay Sands, we decided to just take a cab instead as my feet just can’t take anymore walking!
But honestly from the Marina Bay Sands to Marina Square is only less than 10 minutes away and the cab fare came up to an unbelievable amount of nearly 10 SGD! That’s including the surcharge of 3SGD for travelling out of the Marina Bay Sands and the 30% peak hour charge. The price of convenience. Boo.
Anyway upon reaching Marina Square, we decided to just find a place to have some light snacks to save some space for our “buffet” later in the evening. 🙂
So we headed off to Carl’s Junior, found a cosy little spot, bought our food and slacked our time away eating and reading magazine. We had great fun and laughter reading the Cosmopolitan magazine. The topics are obviously not suitable for the young but if you’re an adult, Cosmopolitan is really an informative and interesting magazine. There’s really a reason why I stopped buying local magazines, besides Shape magazine, ‘cos we hardly talked ’bout anything much and we just have way too much useless advertisements! Zzz.
After slacking for around 2 hours, we decided to head off to our next destination. The Fullerton Hotel. The adventurous us decided to walk from Marina Square to The Fullerton Hotel. And what a mistake. My legs nearly broke from too much walking! Luckily we managed to finally reach there in one piece but of ‘cos with my sore feet. 🙁
So what are we eating at The Fullerton Hotel? We are having their Chocolate Buffet! Usually we will never think of stepping into The Fullerton Hotel for dining or for accommodation due to the cost. But today, we decided to just give their Chocolate Buffet a try, just to experience something different. 🙂
The Chocolate Buffet is held at the Courtyard of The Fullerton Hotel and it’s only available on Fridays and Saturdays from 8PM – 11PM, so it will be better to make your reservations. 🙂
As many people have blogged, the Chocolate Buffet is really only a small area. Do not expect a long table of chocolate-related food. There are only 3 tables. One for their chocolate pastries, one for the chocolate drink and one for their chocolate fondue. And that’s it. Most people will probably think that that is actually not enough for dining, but for both of us, we thought the range was quite alright for an experience.
We had quite some pastries which were mostly so chocolate-y that the iced water feels heavenly after eating those pastries. Haha!
We also tried the chocolate drink. At the table there are cocoa of various percentage and you can choose which cocoa percentage you want and ask the person at the counter to make a chocolate drink of that percentage for you. We had the 55% and 65% cocoa. I must say the 65% one was really just nice for me. Not too sweet and not too bitter. 🙂
Then there was the chocolate fondue table. Too bad they don’t have bananas but the strawberries was really nice to go with chocolate, minus the really sour one I had for one of them. *cringes* And surprisingly the honeydew tasted really well with chocolate and it was really sweet! 🙂
So it was just another session of chit-chatting and talking ’bout what-nots while eating the chocolates, chocolates and more chocolates! And then we decided to head back home to rest from the long day.
Sure is an interesting pre-birthday celebration! Waiting to have another interesting session for Feng’s coming birthday in December. Where shall we head to? 🙂
