V-DAY Specials: Singapore Gardens By The Bay - Michelin Star Pollen & SuperTree by IndoChine.

Valentine's Day Special Edition 

Valentine's Day is coming! It is time to prepare and make early reservations on where to take your loved one this 14th of February 2013. Saint Valentine's Day is celebrated by most countries around the world. This special tradition begun as a liturgical celebration of an early Christian saint called Valentinus (Saint Valentine). He was imprisoned for secretly performing weddings for soldiers who were forbidden to marry. During his imprisonment, he is said to have healed the daughter of his jailer Asterius. Legend states that before his execution, he wrote a farewell note to her - "From your Valentine". 

From today till 14 February, I will be sharing romantic places and restaurants whereby you can celebrate this special day. One of my favourite places which I think would be very romantic is to visit Gardens By The Bay

Gardens By The Bay was introduced by the Singapore government to transform Singapore from a "Garden City" to a "City in a Garden". Grant Associates and Gustafson Porter were the 2 firms that was awarded the master plan design for the Bay South and Bay East Gardens. 
Nearest MRT Train Stop: Bayfront Station. (Take Exit B).

Gardens By The Bay, is really cold. If you are planning to surprise your girl there, ensure that you bring a jacket or coat for her. After touring the indoors Cloud Dome and Flower Dome, you may choose to take her to dine at the restaurants there. There are 2 really romantic restaurants at Gardens By The Bay: Pollen Fine Dining & SuperTree by Indochine. 

Michelin Star Restaurant - Pollen 
(Inside Gardens By The Bay)

Pollen serves mainly Mediterranean-inspired modern European cuisine. It is surrounded by Olive Trees, herbs, vegetation and a sub 20 degree temperature. Michelin Star Chef Jason Atherton heads Pollen, after his acclaimed Tapas bar in Chinatown, Esquina.

Pollen's food was really good. A lot of their dishes were complimented with bits and pieces of edible flowers and leaves. It is really quite an artistic yet natural dish! Extremely refreshing! Their dishes were very well presented. Most of them are made of interesting ingredients.

A big group of us went there, so we managed to try many different dishes. Their beef and duck were really tender. Their fish were fresh and it melts in your mouth. We also had a bottle of red wine. Service there was excellent. Their servers would explain to you, what you are having, how the meal was prepared, what sauce would you eat your meal with, etc. It was a wonderful experience! The ambience of the place was dim and romantic.

Their dessert there looks so pretty that you wouldn't want to eat them. 

At the end of our meal, a server carried out a classic wooden box out, it was filled with Pralines. We were spoilt for choice! All the Pralines in the box looks delicious. Some of us, managed to take 2 pieces instead of just 1 complimentary piece per person. It was truly an amazing experience.

SuperTree by Indochine
(Outdoors of Gardens By The Bay)

The next place that I think would be really romantic is also just around the corner. Supertree by Indochine has teamed up with internationally known local celebrity architect Mink Tan to put Michael Ma's innovation vision into reality. Creating an urban, eco-utopia ambience. This restaurant is sitting on the top of a super tree that is part of Gardens By The Bay. These super trees were built to allow heat and steam from the cooling systems of The Cloud Dome and Flower Dome to be freed into the open air. 

SuperTree by Indochine serves food which is meant to be healthy and made mainly of organic food. They are known for thier super fresh juice concoction, bespoke of Eastern and Western influenced cocktails made of fresh ingredients. These were some of the food Karen and Lora have tried. 

The view from the top is really pretty, the lights from the other trees lights up in different colours. It is really a very romantic spot to be at. After dinner, you may choose to step outdoors to enjoy the scenic view of the rest of Singapore from their roof top.
