Windsor – Bath – Stonehenge 2015 – Day 1


After 5 days in Paris, we returned to London again and began our road trip to Windsor, Bath and Stonehenge.

We arrived Windsor in mid afternoon and did not have enough time to see everything inside Windsor Castle.

We arrived Bath in the evening, surprised that there weren’t many people on the streets.  Beautiful town!

We stayed at Premier Inn, Bath City Centre, very convenient location, basic but clean and efficient.  There is a public car park across the street which we parked overnight for free.

Had a quick walk around town, had a delicious Italian dinner and called it a day.

Bruno’s Pizzeria & Grill @ Tanjong Katong Road, Singapore


A very popular Italian restaurant in the neighbourhood.  Delicious food, generous portion and affordable price. Don’t expect to find a table without reservation on the weekend!

8 1/2 Otto e Mezzo Bombana @ Central, Hong Kong


Hubby and I have finally stayed in HK together long enough to find time to try out Otto e Mezzo.  Even though it was a Tue night and I called a few days earlier to book, I could only get the lounge area.  The lounge area is next to the bar, a more causal setting but it has proper tables and chairs so it was not a problem after all.

We chose the degustation menu which was not too big and reasonably priced for a Michelin restaurant.

King crab & caviar….very fresh king crab, one of my favourite crab and favourite way of cooking.

Perfectly cooked lobster. Had to eat the sea urchin separately as the lobster had much stronger taste.

Beautiful baby lamb…according to hubby, it was good but the beef was even better 🙂

Tender juicy sirloin and beef cheek….wished the portion was bigger :p

My choice of dessert, very refreshing, very pleased with it.

Ended the meal with petite 3 and coffee.

An great meal overall – excellent ingredients and perfect cooking.  The only trouble was food serving was very rush and we had to ask them to slow down.

Osteria Mozza @ Marina Bay, Singapore


We thought about going to Osteria Mozza many times but could never make up our mind cause the kids often want both pizza and pasta, and you could only get either one depending which of the two Osteria Mozza restaurants you choose. Food are delicious and I like that their “individual” pasta portion isn’t too big and just right for the kids.
