Taipei’s Shilin Night Market.

February 14, 2009

It was a night for some food adventure. Calin 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.

What’s even better than lovely dessert? When Calin smiles till her cheeks cramp up with her cute dessert boy. 

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? 🙂


Donut Birthday “Cake”.

December 7, 2008

Since my friend Brenda can have a pizza birthday cake, why not a donut birthday cake for someone else right? I tell you, I have bizarre friends, hence bizarre cake ‘types’. Haha 🙂 

Here’s my dear Calin and her birthday donuts. This was shared with another birthday girl Priscilla, who is not in the photo.

As you can see the donuts were arranged in a happy sweet “16” figure, but can you guess Calin’s real age with the candles? 😛 (No prizes for those who guess correctly.)

My SMU Campus Radio Interview.

April 1, 2008

As mentioned in one of my earlier post, Jacqueline, Nabilah and Calin and I had an audio interview with Daryl. Due to copyright issues, Daryl had to cut out the music portions of the interview, but you can still listen to our thoughts and discussions on social media and blogging here!

From left: Calin, me, Daryl, Jacqueline and Nabilah.

Feel free to share with me your views on this topic. 🙂

Thank you once again for this Daryl.

Calin & Priscilla’s ‘Sweet Sixteen’ Birthday.

March 19, 2008

A group of us gathered in a tiny group study room in school today to celebrate Calin & Priscilla’s birthday. Instead of a birthday cake, we had birthday donuts from J.CO. I have to say that I really enjoyed their chocolate-coffee flavoured donut.

There were flowers, chips, donuts shaped in a ’16’ shape, lots of photo-taking, laughter and the feedings.

Then about 20 minutes later, it was back to school work. SMU students play hard and work smart. 😛

A Singaporean ‘Zhi Cha’ (煮炒)Dinner.

March 17, 2008

Tonight, eight of my friends and I celebrated Priscilla and Calin‘s birthday over a Zhi Cha (煮炒) dinner (a mini restaurateur) at the coffee-shop next to Allson Hotel. There was a lot of food and a lot of laughter. 😀

There was fried carrot cake.

BBQ Stingray.

Sambal kangkung.

Sweet and sour pork.

Sambal squid.

Hotplate tofu.


Food always tastes better with great company. I had a lot of fun tonight and I’m looking forward to more dinners like this. 🙂
