celebrated a belated Father's Day 2012 with a simple family dinner last Monday night, and we brought Daddy out for a meal! we headed to Ssikkek Korean BBQ Buffet Restaurant, which is located at Novena Ville, since Daddy likes Korean BBQ and Novena is quite a convenient location for us. heard that this Ssikkek is a branch of the popular 2D1N at Tanjong Pagar, and since it's nearer to us, we decided to give it a try :)
these are the Royal Highnesses, my gangster daddy and ah lian mummy. hahaha. they are gonna scold me if they see this :X
the food there is all served buffet style, and you can get a variety of different cuts of raw pork, beef and chicken meat, along with Korean side dishes (banchan) and ginseng soup and rice cake and others!! i think it's quite worth it for 22+++ for dinner :D definitely recommended for bbq and meat lovers!
some of the meat on our table. relatively fresh, and well marinated! though i felt that some of the lean meat were a little too thick and tough for me to chew well, while the fattier cuts and more thinly sliced meats were much better. also, be careful not to overcook your meat on the grill or you're gonna end up with dry and tough rubbery meat!
Korean BBQ must always be accompanied by fresh green lettuce! too much grilled meat does get overwhelming and i like to eat my meat wrapped in lettuce, with a generous dollop of BBQ sauce in it :D
gangsta daddy grilling his meat. i think it's really fun to grill your own food and eat it piping fresh and hot!! i'm the sort that likes my food hot, so i love steamboat, hotpot, BBQ, etc etc.
YZ and i! :)
and little sissy Lina on the other side of me.
here's Mummy and Gina
being an expert BBQ-er!
i rely on YZ to flex his strong arm muscles to cook me yummy food :D :D :D
some of my favorite meat, the marinated chicken, and bacon slices! teehee. the bacon is super fatty and unhealthy, but is really really tasty!!
i really enjoyed my food there, and i think i'll go back again for sure, maybe just with YZ! apparently, it's only $12+++ per pax for weekday lunch, which is super cheap for a buffet style meal! i would recommend outdoor seating though, because the ventilation is better outdoors, and you don't want to walk around smelling like a BBQ pit after your meal! it's very crowded there as well, so i'd avoid weekends, especially at night.
after GST and stuff, we paid about $27 per pax. (i think that includes a bottle of beer Daddy ordered, and an ice cream which isn't included in the buffer price) worth the money!!

全家福 ^___^ Happy Father's Day to my one and only Daddy!
and just the daughters with Daddy alone!
love my parents both.
check out the new feather earrings i bought, they match my hair so well!!
a shot of my outfit, Chopstix Aztec Dress in Magenta! i call it chopsticks cos the tri-strap details meet on the shoulders and then separates into three straps down the back again! like how we used to play that chopsticks game in our childhood :D this dress is coming up in the next collection and i love the design and prints! it comes in floral prints as well. if you also like the nude jelly wedges i was wearing, we're bringing it in on on TVD too! :))) because so many of my friends asked me to get it for them!
and check out my recent accessories haul. there are more, but i don't have pictures of everything! :X
alrighty, i'm off for a shower (just came back from my morning jog!) and then to start work! Fridays are the best :) also, i'm gonna be cleaning up the labels/categories on my blog a little so it's more organized and easier for readers to look for the posts they're interested in! :))) i've decided to organize my blog into the following categories: beauty (includes skincare, makeup, hair, product reviews and etc), food (self explanatory, haha), events, advertorials, travel, thevelvetdolls, and fashion! and of course just a general "life and love" category too.
thank you for reading, and come back to visit soon! i'll also be announcing the winners for the L'occitane give-away next! the response was really great, and i wish i had more sets to give away (like i always feel each time i do a give-away!) no worries if you don't get anything this time, cos i'd still be conducting give-aways every now and then! it's a little sad that so many readers comment to participate in the give-away, but on my daily blog posts, all these readers don't say anything! :( i'd like to know that you're reading this space, and i would love to hear from you! so do leave a comment every now and then!
have a great Friday, everyone!
