I actually started this post few weeks ago but didn’t manage to finish it at all *sigh*. Reason being I’m too busy or am I too disorganised or I’m too lazy??? Too lengthy???
Well all the photos posted on this entry all taken during my latest trip to Singapore. Spending more than 2 weeks, I in fact didn’t satisfy a lot of my craving! I can’t believe I didn’t eat much at all…..not much appetite. Mostly due to the extreme heat and humidity and also without CL :P. Note: I didn’t manage to take all the food I eaten during the whole duration of the trip.
I spend the 1st 3 days hiding at home eating my favourite chef homecook food, spending quality time with my family members and doing a lot of catching up with them.
My 1st outing was to CityLink, Marina Square and Millennia Walk with my best friend,her hubby and godson. We had lunch at a Japanese place at MS. Honestly I don’t remember the quality of the noodle because I was busy talking…hehe. The dessert was pretty nice though, a good mixture of red bean paste with two different types of rice balls. But the service was shocking! The place was almost empty as it was early and a lot of families were still doing their house visiting instead of shopping. The waiter who served us can’t even hold a basic english conversation. I had difficulties conveying my order to him. I never expect that in a restaurant in the city with a high chance of tourist walking in.
The next day, I met up with my best friend again and this time she bought me to the newly open Ion at Orchard. We had an early lunch before starting to shop. I had a short tour around on the million dollar renovation food court at the basement (is it really necessary??? food taste nicer??) before we decided to try the Katsudon which 8-days magazine recommended. The tonkatsu was very well done, not dry inside and super crispy outside. Plus it’s not soak with oil even though it’s deep fried. As for the curry, nothing to shout about.
Chinese style pancake (Mi Jian Kueh) is another favourite snack/breakfast of mine. I did tried making them, passable but a lot of room for improvement.
I walked past the hawker center and I couldn’t resist to pack a packet of Chicken Rice even though I’m meeting my ex-colleague for dinner later that evening. It’s a popular store and there wasn’t any queue. Fantastic! Bought 2 packet, 1 for myself and 1 for daddy. It only took me 5 mins to finish it.
