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.

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 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.

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?

Bak Chor Mee Is One Of My Favourite Foods.

March 20, 2008

An Update:

Today (22 March), I realised that the Bak Chor Mee at “S-11 Serangoon Central Food House” (map) is very tasty! I rate it 4.1 over 5 stars. Here is the exact address:

Block 261 

Serangoon Central Drive

#01-05

 

😀 This time, I remembered to take a photo.

While I was on a site visit today, I decided to eat my lunch at G23 Food Centre (Fansida Building) located near Aljunied MRT (the local train service).

It is about a five minute walk away from the MRT.

This is how a typical hawker centre in Singapore would look like.

I ordered a bowl of Bak Chor Mee from “Ali Shan Noodle House”. I did not manage to take a photo as I was too hungry to remember. 😉 I rate the noodles a 1.6 over 5 stars.

For me, there was too much ketchup and the lack of flavour from the chilli. There was too much lard and there were no meatballs! Meatballs are the main reason for me when it comes to eating Bak Chor Mee, I was therefore very disappointed.

The stall’s saving grace is their server Uncle, who was a pretty peculiar chap. He cracked me up when he asked if my Fuji Finepix F31 camera (which was sitting on the table) was the latest Nokia N95 phone. It totally brightened up my afternoon. 😀

If you really want some good Bak Chor Mee, take a look at this list. I will be tracking them down real soon.

My Valentine’s Day Experience At Corduroy & Finch.

February 15, 2008

I had a good time at Corduroy & Finch, one of my top 3 restaurant suggestions as mentioned in my previous post. I’ll relate this experience to you through some of the many photos I took yesterday.

I was greeted by this gorgeous restaurant, tucked away in the corner of 6th Avenue. When the boyfriend and I arrived at 8pm, the place was only half-filled with families, couples and a large group of at least 16 people having a collective Valentine’s Day celebration. The crowd kicked in about an hour later.

There was a box of 6 chocolates on each table, and each chocolate had the words “I Love You” on it.

The Valentine’s Day menu. My boyfriend and I opted for the Grilled Beef Tenderloin, medium-rare. We’re both meat lovers.

While we waited for our food to arrive (which took a wee bit longer than expected), trigger-happy me starting to snap away with my camera (Fuji Finepix F31). Here’s a photo of me with the free chocolates, a view from the second floor (the restaurant was showing a film from the sixties), a photo of the stairway up to the second floor and a photo of the place-mat.

Here’s the food 😀

(From top-left, description moving clockwise) 

Starter: North American lamb pastries, almond yoghurt sauce, garlic oil and toasted pine nuts.
3.9 over 5 stars – the sauce and nuts makes this dish different from a normal Chinese dumpling.

Main Course: Grilled beef tenderloin & baby lobster tail, cep sauce & lobster butter.
4.4 over 5 stars – a very juicy cut of beef with a generous amount of delightful sauce with some mashed potatoes.

Dessert: Strawberry sunburst, champagne rose jelly & lychee compote.
2.8 over 5 stars – I thought they could have done much better with their dessert and I wasn’t too fond of all that rose flavouring in it. However, the strawberry sunburst cake had saved this entire dish from failing at my ratings.

Turkish Delight
2.3 over 5 stars – Okay maybe I am just very particular about how turkish delight should taste like. I like it traditional without any additional flavourings added (rose again) and with some pistachios. However it had a very impressive ‘melt-in-your-mouth’ effect.

The meal ended with a freshly brewed lavazza coffee and some shortbread that was delicious.

Total damage: S$168
Overall rating: 4.3 over 5 stars
(Dropped slight from the previous 4.5 stars, on normal days they’re better at their food and service)

How did you spend your Valentine’s Day? 🙂
