Off To Bangkok For 5 Days.

April 23, 2008

Hey all, I’d be going on a holiday to Bangkok Thailand, which means heaps of delicious food and plenty of shopping. I can’t wait to share my experiences with every one. 🙂

I’m leaving tomorrow and will be back on Monday. Woohoo! 😀

 

Food On A Special Sunday.

April 21, 2008

Oh my, I’ve been so busy having a great time after my exams! 🙂 Here’s what I ate last Sunday.

Breakfast: McDonald’s hotcakes with chicken-sausage and hash browns.

Delicious when dipped in garlic chilli.

Snack (skipped lunch): Absolutely delicious deep fried chicken from Shihlin Taiwan Street Snacks at Suntec City Mall, shared after church between 4 girls.

Ice cream! I ate only very little as I was stuffed with fried chicken and bubble tea.

Dinner: We ate at Pepper Lunch, here’s Qiu Xin – happy with her chicken fried rice. We’re suppose to fry the ingredients together on the hotplate.

Here’re the sauces provided for us to mix into the rice. (garlic and honey sauce)

This was my beef fried rice, yummy. I had to quickly snap this before my beef overcooks!

After dinner, my friends and I headed for a karaoke session. Sigh, what a wonderful day to spend the weekend. 🙂

Dinner Photos With My Dear Fuji Finepix F31.

April 18, 2008

I finally had my fixed up Fuji Finepix F31 camera delivered to my place this evening! 🙂 And I just had to use it to snap away at my dinner. I was so close to kissing my camera, heh.

A huge bowl of carrot, potato & onion soup in our pressure cooker plus my mum’s hand. 🙂

Sesame chicken, stir-fried with ginger and spring onions.

Prawns and onions in a super spicy sweet and sour sauce. It was my favourite dish tonight.

Dinner isn’t complete without a vegetable dish. Spinich with chilli-padi.

😀 I am so happy I got back my fabulous camera.

Cheap Japanese Food At Ang Mo Kio Central.

April 17, 2008

Sumo House is a air-conditioned Japanese eatery at Ang Mo Kio Central. Its cheapest dish, the Katsu-Don costs a mere S$3.05 after tax. Lishan and I went there for dinner yesterday and we both had the TempuraUdon and shared some fried scallops. It had cost us each a little over S$6 each and we were provided with a free flow of hot green tea.

The fried scallops drizzled with mayonnaise.
Rated 2.8 over 5 stars.

My bowl of Tempura-Udon.
Rated 2 over 5 stars. The tempura was soaked in the soup and it became soggy in about 3 minutes. It came with only 2 prawns.

Here’s me slurping up my udon. I’m so diggin’ my new haircut, I missed my bangs so here I am with bangs again!

I only recommend you to eat at Sumo House if you’re starving, feeling hot and unwilling to spend much on your meal.

Bak Kut Teh (肉骨茶) At Serangoon Central.

April 15, 2008

I enjoyed some really good Bak Kut Teh (肉骨茶) at Serangoon Central last weekend with my boyfriend. I was craving something soupy due to a sore throat & headache. This soup came with rice and black sweet sauce for dipping in the pork ribs. *Slurp.

p/s: My Fuji Finepix F31 can be fixed for $55! 🙂 So I’m going to repair it and put my Canon IXUS 860IS plans on hold.

A Colourful Dinner.

April 14, 2008

When I was a young girl, I rarely enjoy home-cooked meals. Therefore, I am very thankful and blessed that I get to eat home-cooked meals so often now; at home and at my boyfriend’s place. This was a delicious spread by Chef James Leong (my boyfriend’s dad) last week. 🙂

Sweet and sour prawns.

Spinich with dried shrimp.

Deep fried fish.

And a Cantonese dinner isn’t complete without a soup dish.

I always feel very at home there. 🙂 I’m a real blessed girl.

A Vegetarian Dinner From Daddy.

April 13, 2008

Sometimes one just needs to eat simple and healthy. I got my chance when my dad whipped up this vegetarian noodles with fresh vegetables and mushrooms. Served in plain soup with just a dash of sesame oil and pepper added to it. Yummy!

Sigh, my Fuji Finepix F31 takes such great photographs with very little effort. I hope that my new Canon IXUS 860IS (aka Canon Powershot SD 870) won’t disappoint me. I’ve got high expectations. I’d be getting it this coming Wednesday.

McDelivery Your McGriddles Breakfast.

April 12, 2008

McDonald’s has finally started to market the arrival of their halal McGriddles burger in Singapore. This was done through their McDelivery website and through a TV commercial (can’t seem to find it off YouTube yet). So now, you no longer need to feel insecure when you want to order this burger. 🙂

 

I learned from Brenda that a lot of the boys in my school are crazy over the McGriddles burger. One of them have no problem dipping this sweet and savoury burger into chilli sauce; which I totally cannot come to terms with. I’ve even got a classmate who ate 3 burgers the moment he had learned of it arriving in Singapore. You can read more about my review on the McGriddles burger here.

Whatever your verdict is on the McGriddles, its always good to have something new on the tried and tested McDonald’s menu. 🙂

The Only Time I’ve Use Betty Crocker Cake Mix.

April 11, 2008

Call me a person that’s full of pride, it doesn’t matter. I simply refuse to use even Betty Crocker’s delicious cake mix when baking. The only time I’ve used it is when I had to bake numerous cupcakes for my friend’s birthday. It’ll simply take too much time to bake large batches of cupcakes in my tiny oven.

Nothing really beats measuring the correct amount of ingredients and mixing things up using different methods. Nothing really beats seeing the end product of my very own creation come to life, knowing full well that every credit goes to me.

I’m pretty sure I ain’t the only baker around who feels this way! 🙂

p/s: My camera lens broke today (Fuji Finepix F31) 😦 It isn’t worth getting it repaired. Any camera (similar to the amazing F31 specifications) to recommend?

A Fried Carrot Cake Breakfast.

April 9, 2008

This Sweet Sauce (black) fried carrot cake may not be the healthiest breakfast dish around, but it sure rocks my socks.

It smelled and tasted heavenly. I could taste the delicious preserved radish (chye por), the fried egg and the tiny bits of white radish that was steamed with rice flour before frying. Oh such delight!

This is a Singaporean dish that no visitor should miss when they are in Singapore.

I could have carrot cake for breakfast, lunch, dinner, tea, dinner and supper. 😀

This photographed carrot cake was purchased at:
Block 261 
Serangoon Central Drive
#01-05

I’m going to give it 3.8 over 5 stars.
