After a "simple" one-pot porridge dinner featuring lobster, scallops, prawns and abalone at home (moohehe), we headed to Shin Gi Tai, a new cocktail bar, for drinks. Here's the chio birthday girl beaming with her specially made birthday cocktail. Birthday cakes are too mainstream especially for this girl who can bake. Moohehe.
As we sipped on the Osmanthus Gimlet, Sexypolitan and Granny's Old Drink, Anthony slowly began showing and offering us samples of the many syrups he makes and several unique spirits and liquors hand-carried from Japan. Then an Aviation, Martini and Brooklyn soon appeared, showcasing some of these unique spirits to good effect.
Quoting the birthday girl who captured the night's emootions perfectly- "Empty glasses. Full hearts." It was a great night out and reminded me of the wonderful time we had at Hong Kong's The Butler. :)
Was great seeing Anthony again. Thank you for taking care of us at your bar! That's why guys like him are called "bar-tenders". Moohehe.
