RICCIOTTI- 10TH ANNIVERSARY PARTY

I am a great fan of food. 
yes, I'm a glutton. LOL
If you've read my blog before, I have had food tastings at Ricciotti and the experience is just awesome. This time, I'm back to write about their 10th Anniversary Party held at their Riverwalk branch.
In conjunction with its tenth anniversary, Noor Holdings officially underwent significant changes
to provide its customers with a new dining experience by developing two different concepts.
 The outlet at Riverwalk is now known as Ricciotti (formerly known as Ricciotti Pizza Pasta Grill).
At Ricciotti, they aim to offer new contemporary, rustic and industrial design. 
This new change will reflect the concept of a trendy home-style Italian meal – one that’s steeped in warmth and comfort within a design ambience.
We had the chance to taste their new dishes during the party and boy, it was so gratifying! 
APPETIZERS
Polenta Herb Fries
Octopus Carpaccio 
Asparagi Alla Griglia
Panzerotti
Nizzarda Salad
I loved how this platter was being served. 
Its so rustic and simple.
I would recommend the Nizzarda Salad and Polenta Herb Fries. 
This 2 dishes really surprised me. For one, i don't eat raw food but the tuna was just so good! I wish I had more to go around:( 
The Herb fries felt a little bready. Yes, bread- dy but good.
PASTA
Gnocchi Al Gorgonzola
Linguine Al Granchio
Risotto Al Frutti Di Mare
I have never tasted a Gnocchi before and this totally set the mark for it.
it's so soft and fluffy and literally melts in your mouth.
The cheese sauce made it even more addictive.
MAIN COURSES
Cod Fillet
Chicken Skewers
Grilled Pork Ribs
PIZZA
Al Tartufo Pizza
Porcine Scamorza Pizza
THIS IS DABOMB!
I loved how the mushy quail eggs compliments the truffle.
Yes, that black thing is truffle.
Forget truffle fries, Truffle pizza might be the next big thing!
We also had the opportunity to see the unveiling of an Italian artist work. 
She even did the finishing touches on the spot. 
IT WAS SO INTERESTING!
DESERTS
Soffiatto
Canella Sweet Pizza
Tiramisu
Carrot Cake
don't be pissed when you do not see the chocolate oozing out from this.
THIS IS NOT A LAVA CAKE. It's a Soffiatto!
Hello Melvin and Jacqueline:)
The annoying Sam was there as HP's plus one and obviously he's not FULL.
LOL. 
Hello Tehpeng and Joey!
Thank you Publicis PR and Ricciotti for the invite:)

Till then,

Gone Girl

I haven't been so excited about a film since ever.
The moment I saw Jennifer Garner's interview on Ellen about her husband's new movie, I knew I had to catch it. So happen, last Saturday, while walking about Iluma, Sam and I caught the movie at the perfect timing.
Starring: Ben Affleck,Rosamund Pike,Neil Patrick Harris and Tyler Perry, 
this movie is NOT TO BE MISSED.
The plot is just FABULOUS. wait, BEYOND FABULOUS.
It's so good in so many ways, I could hardly contain my emotions.
I just kept saying to Sam, OMG, THIS MOVIE IS SO GOOD. SO SO GOOD.  
bet he got sick hearing me say it over and over again!
Synopsis: 
GONE GIRL - directed by David Fincher and based upon the global bestseller by Gillian Flynn - unearths the secrets at the heart of a modern marriage. On the occasion of his fifth wedding anniversary, Nick Dunne (Ben Affleck) reports that his beautiful wife, Amy (Rosamund Pike), has gone missing. Under pressure from the police and a growing media frenzy, Nick's portrait of a blissful union begins to crumble. Soon his lies, deceits and strange behavior have everyone asking the same dark question: Did Nick Dunne kill his wife?  
This movie was adapted from Gillian Flynn's best selling novel and guess what, Reese Witherspoon is one of the producers. Yes, That legally blonde girl! 
It's rated R21 in Singapore and I urge EVERYONE to catch it while it running in the theaters.
I cannot stop harping on how good this film is and as twisted as it may be, Gone Girl is by far the best movie in 2014.

Black & White: The Dawn of Justice 痞子英雄:黎明再起

I've always been a movie junkie. 
There's always a specific genre that I'd usually watch though.
Romance, Action, Romance, Life, Romance. Ok, I just love romantic shows ok? 
Which girl doesn't!
But today, I'm gonna recommend a mandarin action movie. 
Yes, You saw it right, CHINESE FLIM!

I was invited by the lovely people at Clover Flims to catch the gala premiere for 
Black & White: The Dawn of Justice 痞子英雄:黎明再起.
We even got to meet Director Tsai Yueh-hsun and Taiwanese Actor Mark Chao in person too!
Starring the very handsome Mark Chao and Lin GengXin, its a police story filled with tons of excitement. Ok, that's an understatement but you get the drift.

I shan't spoil the story for you but the the synopsis are as follows:
Panic spreads the whole city as a series of bomb explosions happen within hours and this is just the beginning of a tight-knit conspiracy. Righteous and impulsive, Wu Ying-Xiong is paired up with the intelligent but arrogant loner Chen Zhen to track down the mastermind behind the bombing incidents. Soon Wu and Chen will discover that the bombings are just the prelude to a massive destruction. Stolen military missiles are now aimed at the Harbour City; moreover, a deadly virus is about to breakout, which is so highly contagious that it can devour the whole world in 14 days. All the chaos is planned by the Nightwalkers—a secret assassination squad which used to serve the highest government officials.
I must say, this movie had everything you wish for an action movie to have and MORE!
It was funny, sad and very very interesting!
There's even a cameo by our very own Christopher Lee!
2 hours well- spent.

The movie is still running in theaters .
So, what are you waiting for!
Catch it in your nearest theaters soon.

till then,
