The yellow bean hum chim peng was piping hot today and so perfectly good. The salty sweet combo is just heaven to this carb addict. Today there was a young guy at the stall and a lady perhaps the wife … Continue reading
I was so glad to see the stall was open today. The last time it was closed even though it was on a day they usually operate. It’s my very first time trying this famous white carrot cake. I asked … Continue reading
Whenever we get a craving for handmade noodles, Lenu has the consistency that doesn’t disappoint. They didn’t charge for hot water which is great. I like the water almost boiling hot, cos it cools down very fast with the air … Continue reading
Where I Used My CDC Vouchers #7: My first Visit at Toa Payoh Lorong 1 Block 127 Dough Fritter Stall, 02-05
Extremely rare for me to find green bean ham chin pang (hum chin peng) and the owner here is so nice and friendly. Even after I run out of CDC vouchers, I would definitely revisit. The owner only makes a … Continue reading
Came to Foong Kee Coffeeshop at Keong Saik Road for wan tan mee, but we were more impressed by the well roasted Char Siew as some other blogs have mentioned. I especially liked the crispy almost burnt or charred sweet … Continue reading
I continue with my Sichuan handmade noodle (dan dan mian) obsession. The xiao long bao here is good too and I think the ION branch as the best ambience. They gave us a huge booth seat.
I am getting hooked on the handmade noodles at Paradise Dynasty and I do love the dessert of divine soufflé balls (made with egg white, filled with red bean paste, banana and with icing sugar sprinkled on top).
Been craving for handmade noodles, so had some Dan Dan Mian at Paradise Dynasty at Westgate Mall. This is not as spicy as it looks due to the peanut base. I originally thought that this was a chain from China … Continue reading
The service at Asia Grand Restaurant is a lot more polite than other Chinese restaurants we’ve been to. Although I wasn’t as impressed with the Peking duck or the fresh fish this time considering the cost was S$180. The tofu … Continue reading
Joe Wong who looks more like a scientist than a comedian, is brilliant at the Radio Television Correspondents’ Association (RTCA) Dinner in Washington. I think this video is going viral already. My sister just sent it to me and I … Continue reading
Whenever I’m in Chinatown, I head for my favourite S’ban siew pao. S’ban is short for Seremban in Malaysia, where siew pao originates I think. There’s chicken and pork, but the pork is tastier. The pastry is so buttery and … Continue reading
Am not sure if this is a Taoist or Buddhist temple that I saw along Bukit Merah Road. I just thought – what a striking white, framed by the trees. I am assuming this is a temple. I am not … Continue reading
May not look very appetising, but it is. It’s straight out of the wok. Flavourful, but definitely artery clogging. I always try not to eat the pieces of lard, but some of my friends love them. The smallest portion is … Continue reading
The people behind the museum have done a great job. I absolutely love the muted pastel shades. I feel a sense of calm walking through this place. It’s much more fulfilling to spend time here than at another mall. I … Continue reading
I only just learnt how. The lion has a ball under his foot. The ball represents the flower of life. While the lioness has a little cub held protectively beneath her shaggy foot. The female represents Yin and the male … Continue reading
Saw this quadri-lingual sign and could not resist photographing it. English, Chinese, Tamil and Malay. English is our language of business and Malay our national language. Most Singaporeans are bilingual due to our education system which requires us to take … Continue reading
In Singapore I am constantly being reminded about my race. It’s there in every official document and form I fill up – my passport, identity card, school report cards and job interview applications. I could go on. It’s just my … Continue reading
I don’t watch local TV, but I watched the first 3 episodes of the Tamil TV show, Vyjayanthi and captured some screen shots of it to show you. I had to watch this moment of cross-cultural television history. I was … Continue reading
You don’t have to be a member of the club to dine at Yum Char. There’s also another branch in Chinatown which I’ve tried as well, but to be honest I prefer to have Dim Sum at Taste Paradise at … Continue reading
Rojak is our Singapore salad, but it doesn’t taste anything like a salad. It’s more like sweet, sour, spicy and nutty. I used to think it was healthy but now discover that with the prawn paste and all that sugar … Continue reading
Update: Read my review of the show I don’t watch local TV, except for the Noose, but now this show that’s breaking cultural barriers has intrigued me. I don’t know why, but stories like these are heartwarming to me. It … Continue reading
