Saint Pierre can be affordable

On weekdays, Saint Pierre offers good value set lunches comprising of either two, three or four courses, with prices ranging between an unbelievable $28 to $45. Unfortunately it is a little out of the way but on this visit I enjoyed the food that was based on classic French cooking techniques that were well executed. If you are looking for new age / progressive cooking, this may not be your cup of tea. But if all you want is simple, well cooked food, then you have an option here.

On this occasion, we had:

amuse bouche: warm, roasted tomato cream soup

appetizer: tuna sashimi, roasted cauliflower puree

appetizer: artichoke soup with bacon


main course: roasted cod, fennel salad

main: pan fried sea bream, potate ratte with crab
(loved the crispy skin and fresh firm taste of bream)

dessert: any 3 kinds of cheese with condiments below ($8 supplement)
(my favourite is comte!)


Overall the meal was satisfactory, bar the mini baguette served alongside the meal that was cold and chewy. My highlight was the cheese platter because the selection was great and I got to eat my favourite cheese :D.

How do you juggle it all :( ?

I just feel that I don't have enough time - for the husband and  much less for myself!

During the workday, I make sure I try to go home on time so I could spend a couple of hours with A, and put him to bed. Then it's time to have my last pump at about 9pm before I just want to  zone out and crash.  The boy wakes up at least 3 times ever since his last leap when he learnt how to stand. Additionally, he fell really ill for the first time (i.e. antibiotics).  Prior to that, he cries 1-2 times but easily soothed with pacifier or with some milk. Because of these frequent interrupted sleep, the man and I took turns to fall ill as well, and it is difficult to recover. I still have the head colds and occasionally coughing spells.

On weekends, our schedule revolves around family events, and then I try to plan so that A can try to get a nap or 2 as well as to plan our routes throughout the day so I would end up somewhere comfortable to pump when I needed to.  Often the nap part fails,…

OOOh, new flavour!

I have been eating Quest nutrition protein bars for years! I love the taste and they are less guilty than the real deal.  The flavours are pretty spot on and they are available at iherb.com.  I recently shared about this site as well.

I eat at least one of them a day to satisfy that sweet tooth. My favourites so far are the cinnamon roll and smores.  But I'm excited that a new flavour has been launched and can't wait for the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip flavour to arrive!

Lunching at the Bodacious Cafe and Bistro

I seldom venture out to eat at the Biopolis' restaurants, learning my lesson early on that most of the eateries here are not worth the calories or the prices.
But I had a business need that day and found myself with a reservation at Bodacious. To be honest, no reservation was required as the restaurant was not packed even on a work day lunch hour. Yet we struggled to gain the service staff's attention.  After the initial hiccup, our food arrived fairly quickly. Chicken pesto salad for her and a tenderloin steak without fries for me.  
The chicken salad looked dry and not really appetizing; she finished about 3/4 of it.  


The tenderloin was small, stated 6.5oz.  It came up to about my palm size.  it was really tender, perhaps a tad too tender for me, as it borderlined mushy.  Perhaps it was sous-vide first? I don't know but I do know I didn't like that.

Final straw was when I ordered a skinny latte from the barista. He understood my order as the receipt indicated "…
