Ju Shin Jung

Went for Korean BBQ with Chevonne and Lionel at Ju Shin Jung Guillemard Road branch. I've been to the Katong one before and thought it was not bad!

I've always passed by this one at Guilemmard whenever I went to and it was always pretty empty but since it was also Ju Shin Jung I decided to give it a try since I was craving KBBQ. Moreover I had baby E with me that day and most of the Korean BBQ restaurants I usually go to (besides Chang BBQ at Dempsey) is rather small and very packed. Not very baby friendly at all.

Who is dis pwetty zeh zeh??

Haha lio and his minions obsession.

I was happy to find out they have an eat all the meat you can for around $40/pax with a soup each. Quite okay price. Well I actually know of a few good Korean BBQ buffets which are much cheaper but usually very packed so I dont really go often. Plus I prefer better quality meat so I rarely go for Korean BBQ buffets. 

When I had Ju Shin Jung previously, I didn't have the buffet and had better meat. The marinated chicken and pork they offered for the eat all you can was not too bad. However the beef was SO DISAPPOINTING. I would definitely choose the ala carte option if I only ate beef.

Gimme some of dat!

 Mmmm that looks good

It's super children friendly though! Very spacious place and there's even a play area for kids! Baby E was a little cranky and screamed quite a bit towards the end cus he wanted to go home as it was his sleep time but thank goodness the place was big and I don't think his screaming was THAT deafening and distracting to other customers. Phew! Haha. Also, because Ju Shin Jung was a pretty big and spacious restuarant we didn't end up walking out smelling like BBQ. So yay to that!

I would recommend it for dinner in big groups as they have quite a few private rooms available. And yes, if you are dining with a baby or children, this would be a good Korean BBQ place to go to compared to most places! However, i am not a huge fan as I feel there's better KBBQ restaurants in Singapore. But I think I would still go back though because not many KBBQ restaurants are as baby friendly and have so many private rooms. Afterall, the food isn't bad, it's so-so but not WOW.

Elroy 8 Months

Here with a short update and some pictures of Baby E. 

At his 8 months old appointment at the clinic, he is weighing 10.3kg now. Many think he is too heavy but doctor said he is at a very good weight according to her chart so nothing to worry about! :) He is pretty tall for now so i'm hoping he will grow up to be tall! Hehe.

Baby Elroy LOVES FOOD. He wants to eat everything! Guess he got that from his mommy. Haha. He is getting a little bit picky though! He won't finish his food unless it's really REALLY yummy. Sometimes I assume he is full that's why but when we show him his crackers he gets really excited. He would rather eat his crackers than finish the bland food we cook for him. So now we have to add a lil but of salt to his porridge so it'll be tastier .

He can crawl too! Still slow but getting there! He is also trying to stand on his own already so we recently lowered his crib. It's super tiring because he CANNOT STOP MOVING. He is seriously one of the most active baby I've ever seen and I've seen quite a lot of babies ever since I became a mother. I can't imagine how tiring it'll be when he starts to walk because it's super tiring holding onto him now Cus he struggles a lot and wants to touch and hold everything he sees. Haha.

But I'm a proud mama because baby is growing so well! He can't talk yet but he blabbers A LOT. Oh and he tries to sing too?! It is super cute!!! When my helper or myself sings a song, he would "sing along". Haha. I will try to capture that on video one day. 

Oh but recently he is EXTREMELY CLINGY.  He just cannot be left alone. Not even for like a few seconds. Even if he is in his crib playing and concentrating on his toys and not really interacting with me or the helper, the moment we leave his room, he would scream and cry. And it's getting really unbearably loud now! And he seems to start to feel scared of things now. He used to be super fearless, even loud lion dance drums can't scare him but now he would start crying. We bought a spinning ball toy which would make noises and when we let him play with it for the first time, he screamed when the ball moved and made noises! I don't think it looks scary at all leh...but he was sooooo scared of it we had to hide it. But yesterday i took it out and he touched it and seemed ok with it though...haha weird.
