Up Close and Personal Breakfast with Sesame Street Characters at USS

The Sesame Street frenzy did not just end with the birthday cakes and cupcakes for Ashley on her 2-year-old birthday.

An impromptu decision that came with her birthday planning was to bring Ashley to the Sesame Street Character Breakfast at Universal Studios Singapore (USS). Initially, our concerns mainly revolved around the question, “Will Ashley be scared of the life-size Elmo, Big Bird and Abby?” After pondering for a few days, we finally took the plunge and decided to go ahead with the plan to bring Ashley to visit her favourite characters from Sesame Street. This turned out to be one of the best decision as what followed simply amazed Colin and I when we were at USS. As we walked into the empty New York street of USS towards Loui’s NY Pizza Parlor, it was just pure joy to see Ashley gushed out in excitement, “ELMO!” , “ABBY!”, “ERNIE!”. On seeing her excitement just seeing statues of her favourite characters, we knew we were in for a treat when she sees real life Sesame street characters responding to her.

Lunching with the Stingrays at Ocean Restaurant by Cat Cora (S.E.A Aquarium)

The annual affair has arrived once again. Weeks prior to Colin’s 2xth birthday, I ransacked my brains on ideas to celebrate his birthday. Colin has always been an advocate of simple yet personal birthday experiences. Therefore, I wanted to bring him someplace different this year, away from his favorite steaks at classic steakhouses such as Lawry’s, Gordon Grill and Morton’s. In addition, since my plan was to bring our little darling along on this day (How can we ever leave cute Ashley at home??), I decided on Ocean Restaurant by Cat Cora (S.E.A Aquarium). Why is that so? The photos on the website was simply mesmerizing, with the view of marine life in the restaurant while you dine.

Here is a sneak peek of the 3-course set lunch we ordered on that day.

Cabbage and Bacon Soup

Swordfish Tartare

The soup is rich and creamy with a smooth texture finish. My first try at tartare and I love it. It is simply refreshing and appetitising with the fruits (apple, cucumber and avocado) complementing the swordfish.
