Travel - Visiting Lora in June 2016 at Newcastle Australia on Singapore Airlines Business Class

Visiting Lora in Newcastle, Australia
On Singapore Airlines Business Class Travel

I am so thankful to be able to take Singapore Airlines Business Class to travel to Australia. My friends from the Mercedes Benz SLK Sports Car Convertible Club sent me to the airport. My flight was around midnight, so we had supper at Itacho Sushi before heading to the airport. Upon arrival, I made my way to the Business Class Krisflyer Lounge to have a cup of hot chocolate before I proceeded to my boarding gate. 

As always, I love taking Singapore Airlines whenever I travel. I used to work for Singapore Airlines as an ex-air stewardess, so I always look forward to see a warm and smiling Singapore Girl. This time round, I met a cabin crew who shares the same Chinese name as me. She was young and gorgeous. You can always expect excellent customer service on all Singapore Airlines flights.

The flight from Singapore to Sydney, Australia took around 7.5 hours. I took the A380 flight, so it has double decks. I like taking this air craft type as the business seats are at the top level and it is much quieter. There are around 60 business class seats on the upper deck, and only 100+ seats for economy behind the business class. Hence it is nice and quiet for me to rest on a night flight. I usually turn my seat into a bed on night flights, as Singapore Airlines Business Class seats has a horizontal flat bed, which is really comfortable. It was a sleeper service which means you either eat your supper then sleep, or sleep and wake up to eat your breakfast before we land. I chose to have breakfast before I land. I did not sleep on the flight as I always feel really excited about traveling. No matter where I fly to, no matter how long the distance or time the flight takes, no matter if I take economy class, business class or even first class, I cannot sleep. I would watch movies continuously as I am quite a movie freak. I am so looking forward to visit my sister Lora Christelle Lim in Newcastle, Australia!

Sara Shantelle Lim's Birthday Celebration 2016 at Restaurant Botanica @ Hunter Valley Wine Region, Australia!

Sara Shantelle Lim's June Birthday 2016 Celebration
Botanica Restaurant @ Hunter Valley Wine Region

June 2016 - Restaurant Botanica - Hunter Valley Wine Region Australia - This year, I celebrated 
my birthday with my darling sister Lora at award-winning restaurant Botanica situated in the famous Hunter Valley Wine Region. Restaurant Botanica features modern Australia cuisine which was distinct in style and highlights the freshness of their own seasonal produce. We had a wonderful time dining at the restaurant together with girlfriend Katrina Lim and enjoyed beautiful views through the glass windows that looked out into the vastness of the vineyards. We also found some cute little pigs at the back of the restaurant near where we parked our cars and they were making loud snort noises at us demanding food I guess! The food and ambience were excellent especially the dessert tasted simply divine!

My dearest sister, Lora Christelle Lim, brought me to this beautiful restaurant in the heart of Hunter Valley. This place looks very English from both the inside and outside. It is slightly woody and very airy. It looks very spacious as they used a lot of glass to allow natural sunlight to seep into the place.

Modern Australian yet regionally distinctive in style, the menu at Restaurant Botanica is focused on seasonality and freshness, perfectly complemented by an award-winning wine list and stunning views looking out across our private vineyard to the Brokenback Mountain Range. The restaurant’s very own kitchen garden is the source of many of the herbs and vegetables that add a wholesome and healthy dimension to the dishes.
Restaurant Botanica is thrilled to have been awarded Best for Romance in the 2015 Dimmi Awards and Two Wine Glasses in the 2014 Gourmet Traveller Wine List of the Year Awards.

This place was an excellent place to celebrate my birthday. 
I loved how my birthday dessert, the dark chocolate cake and caramel ice cream melted into my mouth. For our appetizers, we had delicious mushroom soup and soft warm bread from the chef.

I had the scallops for my starters and beef cheeks for my main. I love beef cheeks, its my favourite! 

Lora ordered the Ocean Trout for her main course. 

After our meals, we took a stroll around the scenic vineyards just outside this restaurant. 

We also went to check out the Hunter Valley Chocolate Factory situated nearby!

Thank you for this beautiful and memorable celebration Lora. Love ya~
