[Media Invite] Don Quijote Spanish Restaurant

Don Quijote is the chivalric main character in a fictional Spanish novel titled "El ingenioso hidalgo Don Quijote de la Mancha", translated as "The Ingenious Hidalgo Don Quixote of La Mancha". In episodic fashion, the novel narrates the exploits of Don Quijote who, obsessed with tales of chivalry, roves the lands in search of adventure. Accompanied by his skinny horse Rocinante and his sidekick Sancho Panza, he asks to be bestowed knighthood by an innkeeper that he thinks is the lord of a castle and battles wind mills that he believes to be ferocious giants.

Meatballs in Apple Sauce ($13)
Albondigas Con Manzanas y Pinones

One of the tapas offerings which was memorable.
The combination of the meatballs with the apple sauce is just too good!

'Live' Sea Prawns in Garlic and Olive Oil ($18)
Gambas Al Ajilio

The sea prawns are fresh, topped with garlic & drenched in olive oil.
I'm loving the fragrant of the garlic that complements well those prawns.

'Live' Boston Lobster Squid-ink Pasta ($65)
Fideua Negra with 'Live' Boston Lobster

This was appetising and simply great. Think of the thin pasta infused with
black squid ink that comes along with the big boston lobster!

Half Oven-Roasted Spanish Suckling Pig ($169)
Asado de Cochinillo Espanol - Medium Size

Warm Chocolate 'Lava' Cake ($19)
Bomba de Chocolate

Capping off with such a lovely dessert.
It was nicely curated when it was crisp on the outside; while moist within.

[Singapore Drama Review] Code of Law S4

The 4th season of Code of Law will explore more hard - hitting and headline cases of brutal or heinous crimes that shocked Singapore. This season sees the return of familiar favourites like lawyers Jacob Fernandez, Stephanie Szeto and Sanjay Devaraj, along with Razali Hamzah, Nick Han and Audrey Soh from the police force. Each week, the team of investigators must race against time to solve crimes and bring the perpetrators to justice. The 11 - episode series will pack in captivating new characters and plot twists, including one of a serial killer, Derek Ho played by Desmond Tan. Derek Ho leads a double life. A suave and charming high - flying banker by day and by night, a murderer with an abnormal psychological gratification for killing. He is introduced to Stephanie and soon, the two are dating. Danger looms as their relationship develops.

Just finished watching this channel 5 series - Code of Law S4 on toggle. Honestly, I did not watch the previous season for it. Since mediacorp heavily publicised it on various media platforms, I decided to catch it. And true enough, it was commendable. This is definitely one of the shows that I would follow closely.

Particularly, I enjoyed the progression in each episodes, which led me to ponder and followed them closely. There are many intense and thrilling moments which hightened the show.

The finale had an unexpected twist but however, ended abruptly. I am sure to expect a sequel for this suspenseful film. Kudos to Desmond Tan acting capabilities. I guess it was probably his first time to play as a vicious psycho person and he did well!
