Went here for my mom's birthday, with one of our family friends working as a chef, made it possible to enjoy our lunch even more :D

We had the Market Menu which had a 2 course meal from a selection on the standard menu and we also shared a Nutella pizza. The Nutella they used was imported from Italy and we could taste the difference from the locally available Nutella. So tempting to purchase the whole 5kg jar!!!

The feel of the restaurant was very easygoing with the 'pizza guy' Robbie making the pizzas as you order. But in the end it was Manny, our family friend, who made the Nutella pizza for us. :D it was soooo good!! oh and all the other dishes were also awesomely gooood :D

I was lucky enough to try each of the dishes that came out, and I enjoyed them all. :D YUM!.. definitely need to come back for more :D

Theme - Imagination

Although the weather forecast was cloudy and a chance of rain, well they were wrong... the sky was clear and very blue. So it turned out to be a lovely weekend :D Hooraa!!

Below are only some of hundreds of pics that was taken by K and myself.. too many to go through and post them one by one. If anyone knows how to post a lot photos really quickly, please let me know.

Well enjoy the photos.. :) oh and we hardly ate anything during the day (brunch).... all we had was a bacon and egg roll (shared) and a lemon iced tea.. so sad, it was a shame the other food stalls weren't open when we were there.
