My boyfriend took me to Flutes at the Fort (fort canning) and it was gorgeous- wonderful food and nice setting, we had a fantastic night. I think with wine etc it might be a little more expensive than $100 pp but I would say it's well worth it.

As for gifts- well I don't think anyone finds that easy! All I can say is I'd always rather something that took some thought, rather than just something flashy.

I like Halia in the Botanic Gardens a lot, and it should be within budget if you're careful with the drinks.

When it's time to be intimate, wear your favorite lingerie and tie a ribbon around yourself;
go back to the bedroom and present yourself to him. tada!
I'm sure he'll be very happy with your gift... if i were him, i 'd be happy too.:wink:

Sexy Lingerie = $30
Red Ribbon = $2.00
Memories Made = Priceless.

Xbox 360? oh no no no.. that would mean more time spent on the xbox and less quality time spent with you.. lol. you must know his hobbies and interests. if he's outgoing, perhaps a digital camera. if sporty, some cross-trainers or a gym membership. if stylish, a new suit or a shaver.
the possibilities are endless.

"International", so it's basically Western but with Asian touches. Their soft shell crabs are mildly famous.

I'd say Flutes is modern/western. Really interesting dishes though, very nice. The dessert tasting platter was amazing too.

Personally, I would go with something more personal, maybe a few smaller gifts. Alternatively, what about tickets to a show or something you can both do together? But if the Xbox suits what he likes to do and you're keen on the idea I guess there's nothing wrong with that, most blokes would love the idea. [/url]

You're not going to get out of Lido for under $100/person, and for the price I found it a little hit-and-miss. Here's the review I wrote after my visit a few weeks ago.
