I think it’s safe to say that I’ve had a number of pretty good plates of steak which I really enjoyed and have fond memories of. These usually occurred in tandem with a celebratory occasion – carefully prepared primary cuts of beef aren’t cheap, after all, so such experiences are always worth savouring for as long as they last.
I’d been looking for an excuse to revisit Wooloomooloo Steakhouse for a while now, and found the perfect reason to with their $69++ five-course dinner menu available for the month of August, available through Chope. At that price point, you don’t necessarily need a special occasion to persuade your better half into an evening of (mild) indulgence.
Earlier this week, Volkswagen handed me the keys to the Golf Variant R-Line 1.4 TSI press car to review over the National Day break. Launched in Singapore at the start of the year, Volkswagen says the Variant’s reception has been positive since its introduction.

People around me seem to have forgotten the meaning of “brunch”. The term was originally coined in reference to a meal that is consumed in the late morning, combining breakfast and lunch, and therefore replacing two meals with just one. These days, it appears that “brunch” is used as a reference to a social activity – or type of food menu – with no regard for its originally intended timing.
