Morganfield's Christmas Platter

I was invited to Morganfield's Christmas Media Tasting a week back thanks to Juliana from Hash Inc and Morganfield's Singapore!

They've some really interesting items on their Christmas menu, and I'm really excited to share some of the dishes with you because they were unbelievably delicious! Morganfield's Singapore is located at both Suntec City and The Star Vista, and you can find these addresses at the end of my post. 

Also, starting 15th Nov to 28th December, Morganfield's will be delivering its Christmas take home menu to anywhere on the island! Orders will have to be made 5 days in advance, which can be done through phone of online. A 10% early bird discount will be offered to all orders confirmed by 30th November 2014.
 An additional $25 is chargeable for delivery per location. 

Here were some of the items that we tried!


Christmas Red Cooler - $8.90++
(A fruity mix of lemon, watermelon and cranberry juice. Garnished with blackberries)

White Christmas Sangria - $16.90++
(A refreshing mix of white wine, peach puree, diced green apples and oranges)


Beer Candied Bacon - $8.90++ 

Beer and bacon, the perfect combination made with Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar Beer. What can be better with beer than beer bacon? This has been one of my favorite dishes ever since I visited Morganfield's a few months back!


Basketful of Pork - $15.90++

A basketful of Beer Candied Bacon, Pop Corn Pork and Sliced Pork Bratwurst. Perfect sharing basket of porky bites. Couldn't stop munching on the Pork bites because they were simply too addictive.


Christmas Hazelnut Roast Chicken - $28.90++

Whole spring chicken (800-900g) marinated with Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar and served with Traditional Chestnut Stuffing. I wasn't a fan of this dish because I felt that it was a tad bland for my liking.


Bourbon Marmalade Glazed Leg of Ham - $168.90+

A WHOLE leg of ham about 4-5kg with Bourbon Marmalade Glaze. Don't be surprised by its pricing because it's meant to be shared among 12 persons or more! It was another of my favorite dishes. I loved how the ham was so tender and juicy. Oh and not to forget the amazing glaze which definitely left me wanting more!

This year, Morganfield's is also introducing the special Christmas edition Sticky Bones that's combined with a Morgan's Christmas Feast Sharing Platter. The platter will feature Christmas favorites such as the Smoked Turkey Leg and Bourbon Marmalade Glazed Ham!





Morgan's Christmas Feast (For 4-5 persons) - $149.90++

Includes:
- Grilled Sausage Platter (4 sausages)
- Christmas Cranberry Sticky Bones (Half Slab)
- Christmas Hazelnut Sticky Bones (Half Slab)
- Bourbon Marmalade Glazed Ham Slices 
- Smoked Turkey Legs 
- Sides (Roasted Potatoes, Glazed Carrots, Caramelized Onions, Green Beans, Corn Bread)

* For every purchase of a Christmas Feast Platter, you can also top up a Cranberry 'n' Peach Crumble at only $9.90. And trust me, you would want to ;) 


Cranberry 'n' Peach Crumble - $13.90++

Stewed cranberries and peaches topped with a butter sugar crumble and served with Vanilla ice-cream. I loved how the crisps balanced out with the Vanilla ice-cream, and it was the perfect combination of hot and cold in a dish.


The owner was kind enough to offer us the Rogue Santa's Private Reserve Ale (As seen in the middle) and it was $35.90++ for a bottle of 650ml.

Definitely the perfect pairing with the BBQ ribs! My personal favorites were also the Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar Beer as well as the Chainbreaker White, IPA.
Morganfield's offers a wide range of American craft beers which we can rarely find in Singapore!

For Christmas, they're also offering the Santa's Big Mug which is 1 litre of American Craft Beer at $25.90++

NEW Essential Hair Care Series

Hey guys!

Thanks to the people at Essential Singapore and Sample Store, I got to review the NEW Essential hair care series!

The Essential hair series is a popular hair care brand from Japan and it offers products ranging from your day-to-day shampoos as well as intensive treatments such as Hair masks/serums.

So what's NEW about this hair series?
The New Essential hair series has Microfine All Smooth Essence which delivers Nutrients to repair damaged hair surface from root to the tip. Your hair will feel surprisingly smooth when you comb through it with your fingers, and it now requires lesser time to blow dry your hair with lesser tangles!

The Essential product is available in 4 variants to suit all hair needs and type:
1) Nourishing Breakage Defense (orange) – for weak & damaged hair 
2) Moisturizing Frizz Free (pink) – for dull & rough hair 
3) Light Finish Volumizing (yellow) – for flat and limp hair 
4)  Deep Cleansing Care (blue) – for oily scalp & dry ends


Essential Deep Cleansing Care
Nourishing Breakage Defense  

We got to do a survey before they sent us the product, and since my hair is pretty damaged from all the hair-dying/blow-drying, I got the Deep cleansing care as well as the Nourishing breakage defense line of products which also includes a treatment a hair mask!


Essential Deep Cleansing Care Shampoo
$4.50 (200ml) / $11.50 (750ml)


Essential Deep Cleansing Care Conditioner
$4.50 (200ml) / $11.50 (750ml)

Many of you might be confused between the treatment mask and a hair mask, so let me clarify the difference for you guys!


Treatment mask:
Perfect for busy days as you'll only have to leave it on for 30 seconds for it to deeply moisturize your hair!

Essential Nourishing Breakage Defense Hair Mask
$9.90 

Hair mask:
For a more intensive treatment to dry or damaged ends which leaves hair softer and more manageable! It's recommended that you leave this on for 3-7mins for deep conditioning. :) I've used the hair mask before and I really loved how my hair felt after using it! I only discontinued it because I was too lazy, but I'm glad that I'm now back to using this product again thanks to them! Hehe



How my hair looks like now when its blown dry! Haha I went for a hair cut recently so most of my damaged ends are gone, but I love how this range of products make my current ends so much softer! Oh, and it smells real good too btw ;) 

Don't believe me?

October/November

Hey guys!

Okay I know it's been a while. Like 10 days? 10 days since I last crafted a legit blog post and that's like almost a year in my blogging terms, since well, you know I rarely ever stay away for more than a week. I won't go into the details of what has been up because well... you know. Especially when you're also in university and have 1001 assignments and project work on your hands. But I guess my stress level is still not as insane since I still haven't reached a point when I post emo quotes about life on social media. Hahaha. Ok no offense about that, but just that sometimes I think it's hilarious cos it's not like posting a picture with an extremely emo quote below is ever going to help in anything. (No offense. I repeat, no offense to anyone who did that because I am being extremely judgmental here and I do not know the pain that you guys are going through).

Ok that aside.

I decided to break the silence with a series of backdated photos!

1) Mini steamboat reunion at ma crib

They say that the familiarity will always be there with your closest friends, even if you guys haven't met in the longest time. I think that's really true of our friendship, especially when we have known one another for 8 years. Finally decided it was time to meet up since we haven't seen each other in a while, and sometimes, spending time at home is so much better than going out there and squeezing with the crowd. I think we really had more fun spending time indoors  and stuffing ourselves silly than we've had in a long while now :)





2) Sotong

Meet the man behind most of my ootd photos and probably the most patient and nicest guy I know. Like where can you find someone that's willing to go the extra mile for you every single time, and he's amazing at taking ootds btw. Hahaha he can go all the way just for a photo (Because he also knows his very good friend can be very anal when it comes to her ootds) and hasn't even complained once? Ok, not just with ootds, but he's an amazing guy as a whole too.
Btw he's still single, girls! ;) 
#wantnumberjustask




Oh and look at how far we've come hahahahahaha

Ok moving on....

3) Nene Chicken!

This was taken some time back when C and I had this major craving for Nene chicken and practically everything under the sun. Hahaha so yes, we met up like cray during that period just so we could satisfy our cravings, and it was really funny to think how diverse our palates are. 
She's definitely my bestie for a reason! ;) 



4) Jun Hong's 21st

At Velvet which was also the first time I stepped into that part of Zouk. It was a pity that the deejay for the night really sucked, but I was so glad that my dear J was also coincidentally there for her friend's birthday so we FINALLY got to meet outside of school (Though it wasn't the best place). And thank you JH again for the invite! :)
I hope you had a great time, and thanks for being such an amazing friend/listener for the past few years  

(Ok this was actually taken during recess week but I realized I haven't posted it here so I might as well hahaha)

4) Lola's Cafe!

J and I finally decided to give ourselves a little treat in the midst of our crazy packed schedule and we decided on Lola's! I first tried it when Shuang brought me there, and I've missed their honey paprika wings ever since! I don't know if it was me, but somehow it wasn't as good as I imagined anymore. :( 
But I mean, I was really glad that we finally managed to meet out of school (again). Haha and it's nice how we can meet lifelong friends like that along the way, and I'm so glad that I chose to take Korean a year back :') (Though yes, I've forgotten everything I've learnt)

Can't wait for our burden exams to end and we can finally yoloswag at the XLB buffet and watch Momento together   



5) Tuesdays with Shuang

The only day in the week where we get to meet one another, because we don't have any common mods this semester but time spent with this girl is always precious :') 


 6) Last week of school

And all the mandatory photo-shoots we have in class/out of class. I must say that I've been blessed by the best group mates this semester (ok some of them but they're good enough). There have been some drama, but at the end of the day, I'm still glad that we delivered what we had to and as an amazing team of 7 5 I mean. :)



And I'm gonna end off the post with some pictures to make you reaaaaally hungry!

 Sin Ming Prata
 Thai Ice-cream waffles @ November 8
