We didn’t plan to go here and it was quite a random find. Glad we checked it out. They serve good coffee here which surprised us as it’s rare as most places have coffee that’s acidic & sourish. Reminded us … Continue reading
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
Honestly we wanted to try the famous carrot cake here at this Toa Payoh market and food centre on level 2. (The ground level is the wet market so you got to take the lift or climb up to this … Continue reading
Although you’ll run out of vouchers fast if you use them all here, it felt worth the splurge. Some of the best waffles and ice cream I’ve had. Second time here, and as a creature of habit I stuck to … Continue reading
One of our many visits to Lee Fun Nam Kee. Springy tasty noodles that will leave you wanting more and very tender chicken in a delicious sauce. The pickled green chillies bring the meal to the next level. Address: Lee … Continue reading
Haven’t been to the Toa Payoh Hub area in a while and was pleasantly surprised that more casual eateries have been added and now there is a covered air-conditioned walkway for them. There’s a Starbucks at the very end too … Continue reading
A festive atmosphere at one of the oldest estates.
Hope you read about my latest food escapade here. My 12th post at White as Milk.
Sometimes the queues are justified and this one moves fast. I always get one char siew and one tau sar pau. Pretty mini sized so not too heavy. The filling is really nice and is what makes this place famous. … Continue reading
[youtube]LKnosASSnlY[/youtube] I have so much respect for this man and it’s so obvious that he really cares. His humility really wins me over and he really listens to the crowd. He is very witty as well and even discusses how … Continue reading
A small government apartment that only has a lease of 99 years or less, is so extremely expensive. Unless you’re born with a silver spoon, you need to go into debt for life to own one. Imagine – you can’t … Continue reading
It just dawned on me that I have blogged a ton about Chinese New Year 2011 – The Year of the Rabbit. Thought I’d better be a bit organized since February is already here. Here are all my Singapore CNY … Continue reading
I was instantly attracted by these sculptures at Toa Payoh, just next to the place where Singaporeans queue to book their HDB flats, called the Toa Payoh Hub. Toa Payoh central is one of Singapore’s earliest public housing projects. Tiong … Continue reading
Toa Payoh is one of the oldest districts in Singapore and is located in the central area that’s just a few stops away by MRT (subway) to Orchard Road. You will notice that the people here are mostly the elderly … Continue reading
Not all of Singapore is swanky and pristine. There’s also gritty, grimy and authentic in every way. One of the oldest estates is Toa Payoh which is right in the middle of the island. This is one area in Toa … Continue reading
I am not much a fan of Coffee Bean, but since it was surprisingly not crowded we went in. I usually go for the Cafe Mocha which tastes more like half a chocolate drink than coffee.
I was curious when I saw this display of dolls at Toa Payoh HDB Hub. It’s called Project U & I and dolls are done by Singapore school kids. The dolls will be on display till 18th October.
When I return to the same place again and again, I don’t need to rave about it. Repeat visits just proves the food here is great and the price too. It’s Lee Fun Nam Kee Soya Sauce Chicken Noodles for … Continue reading
Because the noodles are just that good, we had lunch here again. I decided to post more pictures from the very best soya sauce chicken noodle store. I am getting quite addicted to the noodles which have an excellent condiment … Continue reading
