Being in a dimly lit location, one should never fear, in fact one should just enjoy the sensation of not seeing the unknown...

 Imagine that you are in a dimly lit room, for the first time you are recognizing your loved one not by sight but by the sound of his/ her voice. As his/ her voice tells you a story in the dark, your senses are heightened and elegance is felt. Forget the candles and experience this unforgettable journey of feeling the genuine presence of your loved ones, for the 1st time concentrate on their voice and listen intently, for their words are amplified in the dark.

Just imagine, that you have lost your sight for an hour or two, and you are abandoning vision in exchange for a new, multi-sensual experience. Would you take his / her hand and began such a journey? The journey into the unknown………..

For a very long time, my Christmases have been spent slogging away at work. This was the first Christmas in a very long time that I did not have to work like a 'mule'. The bf planned the entire celebration, which was vvvvvvvv sweet of him. He knows that I am a BIG fan of trying out new things because my curiosity always gets the better of me. =p And so, he found an exotic restaurant - PASHA.

Upon strolling into the restaurant, the opulent ambience made me gasp because it was like experiencing Morocco right here in Singapore. The place was very well designed and every detail was attended to. Sweeping arches, high ceilings, intricate lighting, brightly colored carpets, sweet melody of Moroccan music playing in the background and velvety upholstery; all located within a shophouse located in the heart of Kampong Glam.

Food was flavourful, with each mouthful I could taste the Morrocan spices, and every bite tantalized my taste buds, heightening my sensation of smell. The aroma that came from the food seemed to entice me to take one more bite and another bite and yet another. I forgot about my diet, and everything in the world became a distant memory. All I could hear was his voice and all I could taste was the delectable spread before me; Sight? I do not need to see for all that is surrounding me, I could feel with such intensity.

After the meal, he took my hand and we headed upstairs to the al fresco area where one can choose to lounge in your very own private gazebo and gaze at the stars. We chose to sit indoors for the clouds were perspiring that beautiful evening...

Verdict : The perfect place for a romantic date or to gather with your best buds for a catch-up session. Food deserves a rating of 4.5 out of 5 for me. Ambience was fantastic. A little point to note is that the entrance to the restaurant is pretty secluded, this could have been enhanced by providing clearer signs. Overall, one of the most memorable days of my life.
