Arossa Grill & Wine Bar

You can never get a seat at Arossa during lunchtime, it's because of the great value lunch sets that has the lunch crowds cooing. What I'm really interested in is it's Jap-Italian fusion, so I met my cousin here for dinner to exchange Christmas presents. 

We started with the Chef's antipasti platter that came with pickles (who knew) unusual and a little spicy.

They gave us a seat at the big windows looking out onto Orchard Road so we could enjoy the Christmas light-up, a nice bonus.

Not everything is available tonight, so we had lobster ravioli and rack of lamb to share. The lobster ravioli is like cheese wantons in lobster bisque and the lamb was nicely roasted with a crisp exterior, almost no fat.

For dessert we had tiramisu and ice-cream trio (jasmine, mango, pear). The liquored up desserts had us feeling really jolly. Thank goodness we had mocktails or we would be too drunk to take public transportation home.

Things get more interesting as we go into evening wear. Jacquard fabrics for winter formal wear.

The colours also get lighter into sage, tan, white & gold.

Sewing Christmas Stockings

Christmas crafts to get everyone into the holiday swing.

There was this 1 particular Spotlight fabric panel that was printed incorrectly with all the stockings facing in one direction only. I didn't notice it at the store and when I got home there wasn't enough fabric to sew it up properly. So this year, when Spotlight put out the Christmas items in September (soo early!) I bought more fabric in a pretty gold-lined mistletoe pattern (Elizabeth Brown Designs Woodland Splendor) to complete it.

I got 4 decent sized Christmas Stockings, 4 petite-sized Christmas Stockings, 8 charms that I used fabric stiffener and glue on and a couple more Christmas charms that would look great on a quilt (that I will hopefully get to in the future).

The perfect complements to those Neiman Marcus stocking hangers.

Estee Lauder Lucidity Loose Powder

As the title suggests, this is a loose powder that is translucent and used as a dusting powder on hot summer days or after applying foundation. Soo lightweight that it is non-intrusive and natural.

 Currently, I am using 01 the lightest shade.

Hit It Rich! Casino Slots

 Everyone knows you can play casino slots on Facebook and this app wins my vote. I can play to my heart's content without spending a cent and have played bonus rounds more often than I have in the actual casinos. Everyday I get free coins and I win even more as I play, I have yet to tap out here. It's a great fix for jackpot junkies. Only complain I have is the good graphics take time to unlock as you have to earn points and build up to it.
