Pizza Hut, Singapore

Back to my Singapore trip review. One day my mom had a sudden crave for Pizza Hut. how funny is that. So we went to the branch in Lucky Plaza for early lunch. The place was almost empty when we arrived, but it was full as we finished eating.

Fruitti Salad - S$5.80

Pizza Hut menu in Singapore is slightly different to the one in Indonesia. For example, my mom loves the salad bar in Pizza Hut Indonesia, but the one in Singapore did not have that. Therefore, she ordered the fruit salad instead. It was a toss of lettuce, diced green apple, mangoes, pineapple bits and fresh strawberries drizzled with mayonnaise. It was supposed to come with raisin too, but they ran out of it. The salad was just okay. However, I have to mention that the pineapple was a bit different than normal pineapple we have in Indonesia, and it was great (and I actually do not like pineapple). It was soft and sweet.

Bruschetta with Mushroom - S$5.50

We also ordered the bruschetta with mushroom as appetizer, but the food did not look appetizing at all! The description said it was baked baguette flavored with garlic spread, topped with marinated button mushroom and chopped parsley. However, the claimed button mushroom was super small and chopped! The parsley was minimal in sight, not that I cared about it. We could not taste the mushroom at all since it was tiny, but overall it surprisingly tasted good.

9" Regular Super Supreme Pan Pizza - S$17.50

We also ordered the medium size of super supreme pan pizza. It came with ground beef, cabanossi sausages, beef pepperoni, chicken ham, capsicums, onions, olives, mushroom and pineapple chucks. I kind of like that the pizza was pillowy.

Mango Tango and Strawberry Paradise - S$4.60 ea

For drinks my mom ordered the Strawberry Paradise and I got the Mango Tango. Both were actually similar. It was tea mixed with passion fruit syrup and strawberry puree for Strawberry Paradise, and mango puree for Mango Tango. It was supposed to come with aloe vera bits but we did not get any. Both drinks were refreshing.

Jean Paul Gaultier Autumn/Winter 2011/2012

Last week, a friend of mine got invited to Jean Paul Gaultier Fall/Winter Fashion Show, and she asked me to accompany her. The event was held in Qi Lounge in Hotel Sultan on October 25, 2011. It's also the soft opening of the lounge.

I'm terribly sorry for the crappy pictures -.-' It was very dark inside and it's hard to keep the focus on the walking models.

You'd see models with grey beehives hair wore layers of clothes and then took the cardigan or blazer off one by one as they passed by. However, I a bit felt like the clothes were for old ladies. It might because of the grey hair. It could be the sweater or the longer skirt hem (it was fall/winter collection after all). The collection was dominated with black and red, even though I saw a hint of grey and white here and there. The collection was pretty basic to me.

Even though it wasn't as expected, I was still able to spot a few exciting items. I love the neat tight fitting dresses. They were sexy and the longer hem made them classy. However, I love the dress pictured above the most. Initially it looked like an ordinary navy stripes dress with oatmeat color cardigan. However, it was actually one piece of clothing! If you unbutton the cardigan and kind of let it fall, it became a pretty casual yet elegant long dress. Isn't it interesting?

Anyway, I was hoping to see out-of-the-world pieces of clothing in the fashion show. I knew it was not the haute couture collection, but it was Jean Paul Gaultier, so I expect at least a pop of the extraordinary. To say I was disappointed is an understatement. I believe, it was the most wearable collection of JPG to date.
