Food In China, Through The Eyes Of Jeremy Ang.

January 14, 2011

My friend Jeremy has so kindly agreed to do a little food-photo exhibition here on my blog. I hope you’d enjoy his photos; his take on China’s food – which could either intrigue you or leave a bad taste in your mouth. 😉 So be warned before you proceed to scroll down any further.

“Situated next to the Great Wall museum at Badaling, the la-mian shop offers a refreshing, warm broth to the chilly Great Wall weather.”

“Fried Starfish. One of the many quirky street food sold just ten minutes away from the Wangfujing subway station.”

“Sea-horse on a stick. You won’t find this anywhere else. Wangfujing station.”

“When I heard that the Chinese eats anything that crawls, they weren’t kidding. Insect feast galore! Wangfujing station.”

(The next photo is not related to food but I couldn’t resist putting this photo in :P)

“A native Yunnan boy. Cute; the day he first met his dog.”

“Ah.. Had this in Yunnan. The dish in the middle is beer-fish. A definite must try in Western China.”

Are you now inspired to go to China to try these out for yourself (not the boy please)? 😉

Fellow Blogger Sherene’s Wedding in Singapore.

January 7, 2011

Gosh this must have been so long ago, but I think it deserves a post. 😉

This avid baker actually made her wedding cake herself, it was rich and oh so delish!

You’re so gorgeous my dear. 🙂

House at Dempsey Hill, Singapore.

October 23, 2009

Sometimes food tastes good simply because…of the company one’s with.

Fish and chips, with a unique set of dips. Tomato (I think), vinegar and tartar sauce.

Very unique tasting seafood pasta.

Dessert. There’s always space for that.

A great place to just let down your hair, chill and watch life go by. Oh and also if you’re into tai-tai watching, you’ll see some beautiful people there. Where at? House at Dempsey, Singapore.

But like I said, sometimes food tastes good because of who you’re with. And this meal tasted fabulous.

Don’t take my word for it, check out the place for yourself. Also, do visit the toilets, very nice and clean design. 😉

Sometimes The Simplest Hawker Food Works.

June 26, 2009

When you’ve got family with you, all you need is a good program playing on the tele, a merry heart and a series of random hawker fare. 

Such is bliss.

Finally…My New Kitchen.

May 29, 2009

All’s not done up yet. Still waiting for a time when I’m free to get an oven. Think you’ll be able to spot the empty shelf space meant for my precious new oven. 

Theme’s metallic, cosy with wood finishes. Am lovin’ my white table top which hides out the scratches (yeah!). 

Am really diggin’ the new sink too. 🙂
 

Everything’s still in a messy state but I’ll make do for now. 🙂 My favourite part of the kitchen? The island. Where the family meets to have breakfast, tea and supper.

Taipei’s Shilin Night Market.

February 14, 2009

It was a night for some food adventure. C and I were on a mission to try whatever our bellies can contain for the night.

The Taiwanese call this the “coffin bread” (棺材板 guān cái bǎn), which is bread stuffed with savoury filling, served toasted on the outside. I probably picked the wrong flavour (prawn & cheese) as I heard the black pepper beef filling was much better. Next time for sure!

Amazing oyster omelet that’s very unlike those you find in Singapore. It has an amazing sauce on top of a pancake-like fried egg and fresh juicy oysters. Underneath, you will find stir fried vegetables. A must try when you visit the Shilin Night Market.

DO NOT underestimate or be put off by these chicken backsides. 5 chickens had to give up their lives for me to stuff one stick down with glee. If you’ve never eaten this, you’ve never been to Taiwan.

Lovely dessert.

When we could not eat anymore…we went to buy local goodies.
Freshly fried almonds infused with honey and other sweet fatty gooey stuff. Cooled and then packed and then purchased.

Does this make you want to go to Taipei? 🙂

Social Media Breakfast 5.

December 18, 2008

I had a good time catching up with old friends and making new ones this Social Media Breakfast, that took place at the Samsung Store @ Vivo City. Too bad I had to leave earlier for another appointment. The location was great and the food was not too bad either.

A view of the spread.

The beautiful chocolate log cake.

And I felt so blessed because I’ve been craving for bread pudding for the longest time and viola! Delicious bread pudding in front of me.

Goodbye SMU @ The Coffee Connoisseur’s (TCC).

December 4, 2008

My last undergraduate examination paper ended last Thursday and my friends and I headed down to SMU‘s TCC to celebrate. I’m really going to miss school. It’s holidays and work from here on, looking forward!

Our lovely exchange student Joy had a chocolate espresso.

Joy’s espresso compared to Yocksong’s Cappuccino.

And of course, I had my favourite pumpkin cheese cake-which was pretty disappointing as I remember it being more moist the last time. I prefer consistency in restaurant food.

 

Christmas Came Early For Us Starbucks Regulars.

December 1, 2008

Being a regular at Starbucks sure has its perks. Besides having great baristas to hang around with and great tasting coffee (I love the toffeenut Christmas special), we get invited to special parties, such as this Christmas party last Thursday. It was a double celebration for me since my last examination paper fell on the same day. 🙂

Barista Sam, the wonderful popiah maker for the evening.

In addition to popiah, we had some awesome fruit cake and a not-so-yummy  avocado salad (I simply left the avocado aside, it tastes like handcream to me, bleah).

And after all that eating, my bestie Lenise went behind the counters and made us various fruit-freezes.

We went dancing around the Christmas tree after that. What a way to end my education in SMU. 🙂

I love Christmas, coffee and being with my loved ones. Most important, I thank the greatest gift Giver of all, Jesus. I won’t be who I am today without Him.
