FMAD: Trista & Ben

The date

Our daters had a meal at Moss at Habitat by Honestbee.

First impression

Trista: “He gives off a warm and friendly vibe. He bought me a flower, which was very sweet of him.”

Ben: “She seemed like a well-mannered and quiet person.”


Trista: “We have similar tastes in food and movies.”

Ben: “For now, we’re still trying to get to know each other. The chemistry will grow deeper on the second date.”

Awkward moment

Trista: “There were no awkward moments, it went really well.”

Ben: “I don’t think there were any awkward moments.”


Trista: “We chatted way past the restaurant’s closing time so we walked around the supermarket area and headed home after that. ”

Ben: “We were a little bit tipsy so nothing much happened. I got her a Grab home.”


Trista: ♥♥♥ “I think he’s a very sweet and thoughtful guy and we had a great time together.”

Ben: ♥♥♥ “I haven’t been on a blind date before so I’m not sure what to expect. I still want to get to know her more and develop our chemistry.”

The atmosphere

"It was my first time here and it’s very cool that it’s a supermarket as well as restaurant space in one. It’s great for a date because there’s so much to talk about." – Trista

The food

"We tried the new Date-night Thursdays menu that's great for sharing. I loved the otah, which was blended till it was very smooth and the chicken rendang was also very flavourful." – Ben

The drinks

“We had the St. Martin Sauvignon Blanc, which was
excellent!” – Ben
