Lunch was catered by Resorts World™ Sentosa, the delicious baked salmon, roasted prime beef, chicken rice with teriyaki fish and pasta with mutton and tomato were my fave, I went for second helpings. :P

*2.00pm to 3.00pm | Celebrity chef Marco Pierre White - so awesome!

Marco Pierre White is a world-renowned British restauranteur, rock-star celebrity chef, the brand ambassador for Knorr, author and TV host.

I have the honour of interviewing him, taking a photo together and taste a fabulous steak cooked by him. I would have to pay S$248+ per person if I want to taste his food in the restaurant.

British born, long time Australian resident Chef Ian Curley has a wicked sense of humour. The audience love him. He shared his secrets about perfecting beef steak.
