Brought YZ out for birthday dinner last night at Wooloomooloo Steakhouse!!
Dressed up and made up for the special occasion ✨😁✨
Must keep the spark in the relationship and go paktor sometimes y'know?
I've always wanted to try Wooloomooloo but never actually been there.
So it was our first time and we got damn lost and walked one big round around entire Raffles City level 3 😑
YZ said Wooloomooloo should be renamed to Ulu-ulu instead. So hard to find!
For first-timers, it's near Charles & Keith and Coffee Club on level 3 all the way in the corner.
You'll see that 👆🏻 sign
Ambience very nice! But it's super dark once the sun sets. If you wanna take nice photos hor please go in the afternoon or early evening.
Moving on to the food!!!
Well, we ordered two starters, one steak. What we ordered:
*1 Lobster Bisque Soup $26
*1 Jumbo Lump Crab Cake $34
*1 USDA Ribeye Steak (12 ounce) $80
* 1 side of Sautéed Mushrooms $16
That's all we ordered and our bill came up to a total of $200 (including $12 for a bottle of still water)
Onion Foccacia Bread 👆🏻👆🏻👆🏻 Came free as a starter.
I read online that for special occasions previously they would offer a complimentary dessert with candle and all that but not any more!
And hor I feel a bit cheated by the bottle of still water at $12 walao should have asked if they served regular water (free) instead.
So we started the meal with the onion Foccacia bread which was quite nice! I personally felt the bread could be tastier but it was soft and warm and went well with the lobster bisque.
Which the staff very kindly portioned into two servings for us because we told them that we were sharing!
Lobster bisque soup was flavorful, a tad on the salty side. There were two chunks of real lobster too! Ok, not too bad.
We were next served our Crab Cake which arrived looking very unexciting.
BUT looks are not everything. It was deeeeelicious!
It was very very crabby and there was hardly any flour or batter holding all the chunks of crab meat together 😍
The patty was grilled to a nice crispy exterior and it was so yummy!
But the star of the evening was the USDA RIBEYE STEAK 😍😍😍
12 ounces of juicy meaty goodness!!!
I love love love meat and I swear this was one of the best steaks we've had in Singapore! (but I haven't tried all those Mortons, Angus Steak House all that)
It comes with four different sauces (pepper corn, red wine, and two more that I can't remember)
But honestly tasted just as good without the sauces too!
Two of us shared the 12 ounce steak and it was *just nice* for us ❤️
I could probably have had more too but we wanted to leave some space for llaollao 🙊
But seriously, every bite of steak was perfection! You know how some steaks are unevenly done and some parts are tougher or more raw. The one at Wooloomooloo was delicious every single bite~
Sautéed mushrooms for $16. Expensive but at least the mushrooms were beautifully cooked and went so well as a side dish with the steak.
Despite the expensive bill, we really enjoyed the meal and the service was not too shabby too. The staff actually printed out a photo for us because of the special occasion which was nice!
Next time, we'll head back and order one steak each with no sides 😂
Hehe I got my dress from an Australian label Sheike 😁💛 It was on sale so I bought it! Minion yellow some more.
Instead of spending another $20 (or more) on dessert, we took a nice stroll over to llaollao at Marina Square for my favourite Sanum!
Which was slightly disappointing coz the portion seemed a little smaller than usual and also my top pick caramelized cookie crunch wasn't available.
But still I don't say no to froyo 😁
Random stuff we get up to sometimes 😂 Posted some snippets on snapchat but it's annoying cuz of the 20 second intervals!
Apart from classical music and choral music (I joined the choir in primary school and ever since then have been exposed to choral/classical music), I enjoy pop music a lot as well!
It's totally different from choral music.
But while pop music is accessible to the masses, very few try to understand and appreciate choral music which can be weird or boring to some.
I've never had any formal classical music training in the form of music instruments or anything but over the past 8 years of singing in the SYC, I've done such a huge repertoire of different kinds of choral music and classical music!
I enjoy hearing the different voice parts coming together to create music that a single voice could never do on its own. It's quite magical.
But even in pop music, I like dueting and harmonizing! It's so fun!
Gosh can't remember the last time we KTV-ed!
Yah I like to 👋🏻👋🏻👋🏻👋🏻 a lot when I'm singing.
Hehe I think I'm pretty lucky to have a singing partner in YZ!
He has a naturally good voice and over the years I've also tried to make him better 😂 Like he never used to sing English songs because he speaks English like a hokkien beng, but now, he knows a few English songs!
You might be amused to know that my trying to teach YZ how to sing better has also resulted in a lot of frustration & arguments because well try teaching your partner something, chances are both of you will get mad 😂
I actually teach pop vocals part-time and have done so for a couple of years already.
It's not easy to teach vocals because every single person is so different when it comes to using their voice and producing sound!
I find it challenging but also satisfying when I see improvement in my students. Teaching also helps me improve myself because I understand vocal production and the human voice better.
Love singing and music! ❤️🎤
