Happy 25th birthday! – Hunger Games & Tim Ho Wan

Let me begin this post by wishing my dearest boyfriend a very happy 25th birthday (; You’re one year older and I do hope that you’ve learnt more about yourself too! Life’s a struggle but you just got to live with it.

So anyway. To celebrate his birthday, we went to catch The Hunger Games at The Cathay and we decided to watch the movie in style by purchasing tickets in the platinum suite. The chairs are super comfy and the service is excellent. Love it! The seats are adjustable and we were given blankies too! (; Ordered popcorn chicken and potato wedges as well as a mug of hot chocolate. Sorry no pictures of these cos I don’t have the guts to use my flash in the dark cinema. Hehe! So where were we? Ah, that’s right. Hunger Games – Catching Fire. It’s a good movie but I don’t get the reason/motive behind the fighting for survival. I did watch the first one though but I still couldn’t catch any ball. So confused. But I did like how the movie held my attention with its fantastic graphics. (; There were some scenes which left me speechless though. Like how Katniss Everdeen was portrayed as almost dying (with blood flowing around her neck) but she managed to find the willpower to move to locate her friend Peeta and then surprisingly, there wasn’t any blood there after that. Weird because I really thought she was gonna die. Okay so watching Hunger Games made me hungry after that. Off we went to have dim sum at Tim Ho Wan – Plaza Singapura. Check out the photos below! (; If only y’all could have a taste (or whiff) of the awesome food via the computer screen.

Delicious char siew pao!
Delicious char siew pao! Crusty, crumbly and buttery on the outside. Hot, steamy and sweet flesh on the inside.

One of the many well-known dim sum dishes, this is known as "siew mai". There's a similar variation also known as "ha gao" which is just shrimp wrapped in a transparent skin instead of the yellow skin seen above.

According to the menu, this is known as the "egg cake". Fluffy and warm on the inside.
