Food Review: Gu Ma Jia Chinese New Year Dishes

Dear lovelies,

Recently, I had the privilege to dine at Gu Ma Jia and tasted their auspicious Chinese New Year reunion dinner set.

Gu Ma Jia has 4 sets of Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner to suit different budgets and taste buds ranging from $398++ to $799++. For diner who wants to order ala carte dishes, their special Chinese New Year dishes are available for add-ons.


In the chinese culture, we begin the new year with blessings of fortune and prosperity with Yu Sheng. 
We had the Prosperity ‘Yu Sheng’ (Gui Fei Abalone) 鸿运发财鱼生(贵妃鲍) with advance tossing and spoken blessings into 2019. May everyone have a smooth-sailing 2019!


This Yu Sheng had a wide variety of fresh ingredients and every mouth of it tasted delicious and refreshing on the palate. I went for double serving of it, really tasty and unforgettable! I love it! 

The next Chinese New Year dish we had was the Lobster Cold Platter 龙虾拼盘 which consisted of Smoked Duck, Mixed Sauce Pacific Clam, Gu Ma Bean Curd, Salad Lobster.


I highly recommend this dish! Full marks for both presentation and taste, worthy of all the calories. Every dish on this platter contributed to a different taste on the tastebuds yet marvelous in combination. The Gu Ma bean curd is no ordinary fried bean curd with its crispy exterior and special recipe delightful taste in the interior. The pacific clam, salad lobster and smoked duck were equally fresh and palatable. Another of my favourite dish!

Another Chinese New Year dish at Gu Ma Jia is the Lychee Sweet & Sour Grouper 荔枝酸甜石斑鱼.


This is a convenient dish to consume as the bones had been removed and the fish meat comes in cubes. The tangy sweet and sour sauce is a good match with the fresh and tender fish meat.

Christmas Wonderland @ Gardens by the Bay

Dear lovelies,

Christmas Wonderland at Gardens by the Bay is back again this year with programmes lined up!
We spent an enjoyable sisters' time admiring the christmas lights and visiting their festive market.



Christmas Wonderland this year is more extensive than last year's, so it involves quite a bit of walking to cover the area but there are also sufficient resting space around the area to rest tired legs or chill under the night sky.


In terms of activities, there are a number of attractions to make this a great place for family with kids and it involves extra spending but the entrance fee is minimal, so it is generally affordable.

Unique gifts and treats are also in store at the Festive Market for all visitors to enjoy while food aficionados can head to ‘Slice of SAVOUR’ to indulge in more exciting culinary offerings.

Festive Market and 'Slice of SAVOUR':

There are a variety of food to fill our hungry stomach at Christmas Wonderland while experiencing the cool night's breeze after the rain.
