It's been a long long time since Hubby & I have our couple time together.
Prior to our 6th Wedding Anniversary in November, Hubby actually requested my parents if they can take some time off to help us mind our two boys for 24 hours! My mother said yes and so Hubby went ahead to plan a date full of surprises!
He told me to prepare the passports, bring along my makeup pouch and we don't need anything else. He promised that he will buy everything else that I required. (WOW! By now, I am still so in love and touched! My Hubby is SO MAN!) (Guys, it really pays off if you treat your wifey well!!!)
I had thought he was bringing me to Johor for a twenty-four hours getaway, but as he drove on, I kept on asking him "Hey! this direction don't need the passports leh!" Turned out that he was bringing me to the Salt Grill & Sky Bar for afternoon tea! Salt Grill & Sky Bar is located on the 55 and 56 levels of Ion Orchard.

We were seated right in front of one of the full window and the view is splendid!

When we reached there it was opened for After Tea, so we ordered the Afternoon Platter. While waiting for the food to arrive, we took pictures. :)

|Such exquisite delicacies!|

In short, we had a really great afternoon enjoying the tea, the exquisite afternoon platter, chatting with absolutely no interruption from our children! The food are ALL really very nice, except for portions very small. ;p

After we were done, we went up to ION Sky located on the 56th level. From there, we could almost walked one round to see the whole of Singapore! The view is breath-taking!
