Birthday Celebration 2014 @ Three Bistro Singapore
My third birthday spent with Sweetie Muffin thus far. And the first spent as legally married couples.So, what is so special about this occasion?Nothing much. I spent my day doing some shopping on Taobao and updating my blog and took an MRT down to Promenade as Sweetie Muffin said he made a reservation at Marina Square.
|But first, lemme take a Selfie 🙂|
So I did spend a little bit more of effort in dolling myself up for the dinner because I wanted to take some photos to commemorate my birthday because I would be 1 year wiser by then.
Sweetie Muffin bought a dining Groupon (but not Ah Yat Abalone this time) for Western Cuisine @ Three Bistro Singapore.

Sweetie Muffin opted for the SGD29.90 with Three Bistros Singapore as he had “Round Two” planned.
As usual, he is full or weird ideas for his surprises but it wouldn’t be another round of proposal for sure.
Muffin enjoyed serenity in his dining experience, so he chose this bistro for private dining.
We were each presented with a set of menu to browse through.
I was told not to eat too full as he had “Round 2” in mind but was unwilling to reveal what was that *FINE*
The drinks menu was rather extensive but too bad they don’t serve Bailey’s in their cocktails 🙁
Hence we ordered Mango Juice instead.

We can choose our mains either “From Sea” (meaning Seafood) or “From Land” (land creatures).
As I am not too fond of the fishy taste, I would not want to ruin my birthday mood by ordering a fishy tasting dish and hence opted for Beef as my mains instead.
Sweetie Muffin on the other hand, opted for Chicken.
We also ordered both desserts offered under the menu to try.
Mango Juice (SGD5++ per glass)

Cream of Mushroom with Cheese Croutons

However, I think they can still put more mushrooms in the soup to make it richer as it is pretty runny.
The cheese crouton tasted great after it absorbed the moisture and taste from the mushroom cream 🙂
Wild Rocket Salad and Cherry Tomato with Balsamic Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Whoa! This is a very healthy dish full of greens!
They could have added more cherry tomatoes or other ingredients into the salad to make it taste less ‘grassy’ and perhaps cut the leaves up a bit because it was pretty difficult for me to stuff the leaves into my mouth without looking unglam *MEH*
From Land: Rosemary Beef Striploin with Chocolate Cream Sauce served with Cajun Roasted Potato
I think the plate is big but looks a tad too empty.. LOL.

This dish looks pretty artistic but I was pretty turned off to see the ‘grass’ at the top right hand corner after eating the entire bowl of grass earlier.
The Cajun Roasted Potatoes tasted good – not too dry and not too soggy.
I had my beef well done. The texture was still rather tough for my personal liking – I would still love the beef from Wild Honey (so far that’s the best I’ve tasted).
|The Food looks BIGGER than myself!|
From Land: Herbs Marinated Chicken and Cajun Roasted Potato and Honey Mustard Sauce
|From Land: Herbs Marinated Chicken and Cajun Roasted Potato and Honey Mustard Sauce|
I preferred Sweetie Muffin’s Chicken to my Beef and hence ended up eating half of his portion whilst I donated most of the beef to him.
However for unknown reasons, I felt that the mains kind of reminded me of the set meals served by Astons which came with 2 sides of our choice. Sweetie Muffin gave me his ultra MEH looked when I told him that *Oops*
|Home-made Chocolate Brownie & Classic Italian Panna Cotta|
Home-made Chocolate Brownie
The Chocolate Brownie tasted warm and moist and we liked it lots.
However the ice-cream serving was a little small (for an ice-cream lover like myself).
The ice-cream had a very strong vanilla taste which I did not particularly like as well.
Classic Italian Panna Cotta
The Panna Cotta tasted too sweet to my liking.
It had the Tau Huey (Soya Beancurd) texture (but slightly more solid) and the mixed berries on top was rather sour.
However, I felt that we would not visit this place during normal days because the menu prices are a little too steep if we were to dine without the Groupon deal, not to mention that I actually preferred the taste from Astons still. Would suggest them not to repeat serving the greens in the mains since salad was already included in the set.

I know some of you might be curious what surprise Muffin had planned for me after the dinner.
So.. In order not to disappoint you guys, I shall flash the ‘surprise’ below:
Sweetie Muffin actually went to pre-order a customised ice-cream cake for my birthday after I commented that I have not tasted an ice-cream cake yet. He is indeed the SWEETEST Muffin in the whole wide world!
He even got the baker to make the Brown and Cony Couple Tee Sticker for the cake décor!
And the sides came with tiny colourful stars ~ Awwww ~~
I made a wish upon the stars, hoping that it would come true…
I couldn’t bear to cut the cake because it looked pretty and I did not know how to cut it.
If I were to dissect it vertically, the Brown and Cony would be separated – hence I decided to dissect the cake horizontally instead.
|One last photo of the cake before I cut it…|
To be frank – the first moment when I saw the cake design, the first thing that came into my mind was PAPER EFFIGY!

Anyways, the cake was frozen solid and would not budge when I tried to cut it. Hence, Muffin had to cut it with the metallic Butcher’s knife instead.
Also, the fondant was extremely sweet as expected to the extent that the Oreo Ice-cream inside tasted insipid.

However, I really appreciated Sweetie Muffin’s efforts to make my birthday a special one.
LOVE is the CAKE under the icing.The IMMATURE lick it clean and throw the rest away;ADULTS scrape off the top and eat it dry– Muackable Quotes
Thanks Muffin, for adding colours to my life and making my birthdays less boring.
I really appreciate your efforts to be romantic and would like you to keep up the good job 🙂
|GOOD JOB! Muffin!|
