Teen stars Edwin Goh and Jayley Woo joined celebrity food bloggers Catherine Ling (camemberu.com), Miss Tam Chiak (misstamchiak.com) and Velda Tan (belluspuera.blogspot.com) in an evening of fun, laugher and “gastronomic intoxication” as NYDC celebrated their Sweet 17 on 18 September 2012 at their Bugis Junction’s outlet.
I was lucky to win the @ChurpChurp invite for the party on Tuesday. I was even more delighted to know that fellow blogger friends, Jeremy Li (jeremysg.blogspot.com) and Valentine Low (enidlareg.blogspot.sg) were attending the event too. It’s been a long time since I caught up with Valentine and I was happy to find out on the spot that we were arranged to sit together.
Also on the same table were popular blogger, Catherine Ling (aka Camemberu) and connected with new friends – Amanda Lee (@__amandalee), Janice Yik (@janiceyik) and Samantha Kaylee (@samankaylee). I also took photo with William Tan (onlywilliam.blogspot.com).
Hosted by my favorite YES 9.33 DJ, Lim Peifen (@LimPeifen), we’re entertained by engaging games and her energetic hosting as we sank our teeth into NDYC newest additionals to their menu.
The first game we played was “Food Search”. It was a word search puzzle where we had to hunt for the items on their menu. We were the second team to complete the task. But unfortunately we accidentally circle one extra letter and we didn’t manage to win the vouchers.
To keep our occupied in between the serving, we played the second game “The Moment” where teams were given a new food item and we were supposed to come out with a tagline relating to a particular moment in our live. Our entry “A Coffee Affair – A romance you can have anytime, only at NDYC” won first prize and each of us were rewarded with a $20 voucher!
We also played the longest breath game. Simply said, “NYDCcccccccccccccccccccccccccccc..” My team mate and I both tried but were unsuccessful at breaking Edwin’s longest breath record.
In celebration of their “Sweet 17”, diners can look forward to two popular comeback items “Romeo & Juliet” as well as “Picasso Pizza”. Not party was complete without boozing and no one could do it better than hiding the alcohol inside the gastronomic treats. I really love the Waldorf with a Hic, Drunken Masta and Nutty Cookie Cruncher. 😀
Three lucky winners of “Post us a birthday message” contest were awarded with one year supply of mudpies! Wow, I would really love to befriend them, eat mudpies and grow fat. Hahaha…
Waldorf with a Hic… this sexy salad is Irish with whisky soaked grapes!
Skinny Dip Chips… have your choice of spicy chili beef, blue cheese or artichoke blend dips
Romeo & Juliet… herb baked rice complete with bacon and sweet corn
Picasso Pizza… make your pizza artistic by choosing your own toppings
Drunken Masta… choose your drunken level with one shot, two shots or three shots of tequila to accompany the seafood pasta with tiger prawns, dory fillet and clams
Yankee’s in Town… check out chicken chutes and sausage wrapped with delicious bacon
Cheesecakes… A Passion for Cheesecake (with passion fruit), Sourpuss on the Loose (lemon tart), P-nut Buttered Up (peanut butter included), Englishman in New York (with Earl Grey)
Mudpies… I’m Goin’ Bananas (yellow, yellow banana) and Sealed with a Kiss (minty kiss)
