The last time that I was at the Singapore Marriott Hotel was for the Influr event a few months back (which you can read all about it by clicking HERE). It was a social media event held on a weekday evening, at the Pool Grill's terrace pavilion.
The Pool Grill is an alfresco restaurant located on the 5th level of the hotel. When I was there for the event, I liked the chilled-out and relaxing vibes that it brilliantly has. So much so that I told myself that I will visit Pool Grill in the daytime. Hence, I decided to have my lunch at the Pool Grill with my friend a couple of weeks ago! :)
The Pool Grill's food menu
We were served warm bread, along with 3 assorted dips.
I had to post this up, cos I like the bokeh effect shown in this pic. :p
We ordered the same main course, which was the Seared Duck Breast.
As well as the Garlic & Rosemary Roasted Kipfler Potatoes for our sides.
The duck meat was accompanied with the sweet corn puree,
quinoa (which I don't like), turnip and black berries jus.
I liked the plating of my seared duck breast, as well as its color. However, I wold have liked it more if not because of how rubbery it was led to me having a tough time chewing it. The crust could have been done better too... I liked a little of crust on my pan seared meat, which was not evident in mine. On the other hand, kudos for the sweet corn puree which I absolutely love!
The roasted potatoes were awesome! It was flavorful and have a good amount of spice/seasonings cooked with it. It is so nice that I will consider heading back to Pool Grill just to snack on these roasted potatoes! Haha!

As it was the Fourth of July, whereby US celebrates its Independence Day, I decided to dress up in the colors of the US flag on that day - Blue, Red and White. I wanted to join in the celebration with my lovely friends in US, whom I knew were planning a long weekend celebration, filled with picnics and BBQs at the parks. Moreover, most of them were going to dress up in these 3 colors too... Similar to how most of us actually don the colors of red and white on Singapore's National Day. :p
This was my #FourthofJuly OOTD!
And say hi to my new Prada bag!
Below photo was up on my Instagram account on the day itself.
If you have not followed me, you should...
Cos I update my daily life more frequently on IG.
So start snooping me there... >>> @felizaong! :p
Like I mentioned, the influr event was held at the Terrace Pavilion.
I saw how romantic it was at the main dining area when I was there for the event.
It is really nice... Do come here for your dinner dates! :p
This was taken just before we left Pool Grill.
It is equally nice to have a quiet lunch or tea time here too. :)
1 more photo before I end this post! :p
