Saturdate + PS Cafe + Milly's

I seldom blog about my life now, so here's "diary" post about last Saturday, since last Saturday was pretty well spent with my BF! :)
I started my weekend with a visit to Milly's Bugis Cube for my monthly beauty affair! Got a new set of eyelash extensions done, as well as a new set of nails..
As usual, I did my eyelash extensions with You You. I decided to do fur lash extensions 8/10mm that day, fur lash has got to be my favourite since they are really soft and mega lightweight! 8/10mm is the normal length most people will opt for, and it is the longest I can go without my lashes hitting my spectacles. On months that I have major events, I will go for 10/12mm sets instead.

After I did my lashes, it is time to do my nails..Xiao Man did my nails for me that day! I am recently into japanese and light color designs, (and I am really picky,) so we kind of created a new design altogether with reference from some designs online. I'm sooo in love with the crystal ribbon charm! It is super sparkly, and I think it really look like a ring design from jewellery shops hehe. Here's my white and bling nails! (Taken at P.S Cafe during dinner)
Anyway, just for your info, Milly's $20 single color gelish manicure promotion is back! Some of my friends have been waiting for this promotion to come back... Do visit them if you wanna get some nails done, $20 is really a good deal and you get quality work done on your nails.

BF came to fetch me after I did my nails, we went to do some stuffs and had blackball for tea since we are in the Bugis area. Yummy yummy blackball!

Travelled to town thereafter as we wanted to go to Shaw Lido for a movie at night. Since it was pretty early, we went shopping at Orchard and B found new shoes for himself! I'm happy since he seldom shop for himself~
Decided to go to PS. Cafe for early dinner, it has been on my "To-Go List" for the longest time ever! My friend was all-praises for their truffle fries, I also wanna try haha.. Took a 10mins walk to Palais Renaissance from ion orchard, P.S Cafe is at then second level btw.

We didn't want to queue for indoor seats so we sat outside, the outside looks nice and there is natural sunlight which is good for photos hehe! We were too early for dinner, and they only have selected mains available during their tea-time. Luckily the choices available sounds pretty good still.
image
The waiting time was pretty okay, not too slow and not too fast.
image
Both of us was super excited to try out our food!!!

Mandatory shot of all the food before we dig in! We have a habit of sharing our food, so we will usually order 2 dishes and share both of them.. :)

PS. Chicken In The Basket

We loved this, and the portion was huge! These breaded chicken tenders were fresh and juicy (chicken tenders at other eateries sometimes turn out pretty dry FYI). We changed the fries to truffle fries with a $5 top up, since their ala carte truffle fries looks humongous (I think it is more than enough for a table of 8 or more) and we definitely cannot finish it if we order another dish to share. To be honest, we could only taste the cheese and salt instead of the truffle oil most of the time, but it was still darn good nevertheless! This dish also came with 2 sauces - kaffir lime aioli and chilli & tamarind dip, I liked the aioli sauce and BF liked the latter, so I would say both are good on the whole.

He can't wait to eat but I kept taking photos haha!

Spicy King Prawn Aglio Olio

I requested them to cook this dish without chilli, as I can't really take spicy food. This dish came topped with toasted sesame breadcrumbs which was quite nice, I love crispy stuffs!! They were generous with the big fat prawns, I think there were 5 or 6 in total! However, I do find this dish pretty dry for a pasta, I'm not sure if the breadcrumbs absorbed the moisture when I mixed everything together or is it due to other reasons? Also, I felt that the dish tasted too bitter, which means that the garlic is overcooked. This dish is not too bad on the whole, but I had really high expectations for PS Cafe so the bitter garlic part was kind of disappointing since I believe cooking garlic is a basic must-know for aglio olio.

I'm a pasta monster :D
image
Total damage for this meal was $70+, we ordered 2 mains and no drinks. The price is on the high side, but the generous portions definitely made up for the price. It was a good experience on the whole, pampering ourselves with a good meal at a nice cafe. And I can finally strike this off my to-go list haha! I want to try their crab cakes during my next visit~
Ended our happy Saturdate with "Cinderella" movie at Shaw..
I love weekends with my boy! ♥♥♥
