Sampan Ride @Marina Bay Sands

Here we are at Marina Bay Sands (MBS) with lots of "expensive" shops around us which is nice to see but not nice to our pocket. So instead of shopping, we prefer to enjoy the beauty inside this mall by taking a Sampan Ride. S$10.00 per pax for at most 15 minutes ride which is not really cheap. However, it is a well worth experience.
We requested to take their big hat earlier on for photography but later on, we are giving by the staffs voluntarily with a mini size version. So cute....hahaha~ 
Off we go with a slow and relaxing ride passing by all those luxury outlets. Along a stretch of blue-green water, and marvel at dancing water refraction under the coolness of a passing tunnel. At the same time instead of taking pictures but being taken by others too. LOL~
We were told that once we circle the Rain Oculus, we need to look up and make a wish. 
You might just be privy to the hourly cascade of international artist Ned Kahn’s 22-meter diameter acrylic bowl set on a 90-ton steel structure that releases more than 22,000 liters of water per minute, from two storeys above. 
I don't understand when we getting near to our ending point, they started to rock the sampan. Quite weird for me. I prefer a relaxing one from the start until the end and watching the outstanding architecture. Recommended for a one time experience will do.

Magnum Cafe @IOI City Mall, Putrajaya

Outlook: 5/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 4/5 - It contains of cashew meringue, Mascarpone cream, honey balsamic cream served with white chocolate dipped vanilla Magnum topped with freeze dried raspberries and fresh strawberries. My suggestion is to mix them all together including the ice cream itself otherwise by eating the ice cream alone will be too sweet. Once you mixed them all together, the magic comes. The sensational taste of creamy, crunchy, a little sourish kick and sweetness combining all together to create a wonderful ice cream dessert. Definitely is a must order dessert when you are there.

Tamarind Springs @ Jalan TAR, Ampang

Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 3/5 - It is also known as their signature Symphony of Starters, which takes you across the breadth of Indochinese cuisine with Vietnamese shrimp crystal rolls, lemongrass prawns, Cambodian-style deep-fried shrimp cakes and minced chicken on cinnamon sticks. All served with a variety of piquant sauces. The plate is just nice for 2 pax but the price is too expensive for that small portion.

Outlook: 3/5 Creativity: 5/5 Taste: 4/5 Price: 3/5 Overall: 3/5 - If you think that coconut soup should be a milky soup, then you are wrong. This is a chicken tomyam clear soup with coconut meat in it. Very delicious and creative way to make it. The coconut meat is the highlight of the entire soup. It just gave the soup an extra coconut fragrance in it and of course, they are edible. Do not worry, the soup is not too spicy.
