Some more stuff

Ok, so there was this one day when I walked past a poster that said Crystal Jade’s xiao long bao is $2 with every bowl of la mian. Of course I buy la!!!!!


Shiok.


Café & Meal Muji because in Japan I did not bother to go try so I have to try in Singapore .__.
Like Fiona said, it’s just expensive zichar. But it’s nice when cold too so that’s good.


One day after work we went to Liang Court. Got a bunch of stuff from Meidi-ya and went looking for dinner.
Brought them to Tamoya a while just before closing so we had to make do with whatever’s left lol… They loved it. YES








Working = eating. Do I earn? Don’t think so hahaha…


Go find me at the Art Connector!
Had lunch at 1933! I love set lunches :) $$$$

NICE

NICE

NICE
Then I went to work lol.

One day my mum went for a massage and I was like can I drive around while you’re at it and she said ok unwillingly. YES!
So I went looking for bookshops. I was looking for a book. I don’t even know what anymore but ok…

Then I was still too early so I went to lepak at Lepark.

Damn good spam fries ^__^

Chicken rice sushi. Boom.

The toilet is really creepy and so am I.




NICE!!!

This was when the truffle shaker fries were out and it sucks LOL. And I brought out my saved seaweed sachet because swag.



Chatted with the Milo uncle and he said “Iced Milo not thick is not called iced Milo. Is called iced water. Milo dinosaur got so thick or not?” :D U GO GURL

$20 for a 3-course lunch at Pepper Steakhouse is pretty much damn awesome in value and taste but no one else sees it.



Yet they are ok with spending $17 on a bowl of ramen. Guys! Why?



The super stack kinda sucks now because they pre-slice it and it’s no longer moist af.


Shin Yeh’s not very nice leh :/


Tsuru-koshi for dinner one day.


Prata because Zion was closed for cleaning for a while T_T

A bowl of taugeh at Ramen Champion lol.


Oriole with Hazel :D


The cajun fries and death cream GOOODOODOODODODODDDDD!!!! :D


Bak chor mee with Chara after class because she has weird cravings.

Christmas turkey ham sandwich at Asanoya Bakery. Love that place!! We were working on our first orders already :D

ASH!!!!!!!

Zion mayor in da house

Tony’s Pizza mayor in da house

Went to look for Marissa (I had the car!! Why?)

Supper at Niqqi’s The Cheese Prata Shop. Lul so full.


Christmas.

Ok let me just stop here. 3 posts in a few hours man!!! EFFICIENT!!! I’d continue but I have a flight to catch! (Yes this is queued! (So is the next post hahaha))

Some stuff

I hadn’t realise I’d let myself ignore this site for so long! So here are some fillers!!!!


My life as a mayor of Zion hawker hahahaha

Omurice at Ramen Champion. Kids’ meals are so difficult to attain as an adult that when you actually manage to order them it becomes twice as nice. First you taste success, then you taste the awesome sauce assortment in kids’ meals and it being in a car just makes it damn MMMMMM.


Zion with really good lighting.


Did you know I lost my mayorship of Ichiban Boshi? :(


Bought some Korean honey chicken to eat in class. Japanese food is better. 5eva.



Maggi goreng pattaya at Spize.

My phone’s screen shattered for the first time ever T_T




Tried Boom Chocolatta because B&J’s promo :D

Yum!


Eating at Swee Choon for the first time.

It’s ok only man.




It’s been a while since I last went to look at puppies at the pet shop while working :<




Went to Wala Wala with Krissada Tangjaiyoo and I haven’t seen him for more than two years. I had forgotten how almost completely incomprehensible he sounds because of his Thai accent hahahaha!

Lasagne at Gastronomia :D


Dinner before class! At this point I think we were just beginning to discuss business plans :D

She needs alcohol so it was Dosukoi Sakaba again. The onigiri is bae man.

We had another bowl of edamame because it’s so good.


Had Korean BBQ at I’m KIM to celebrate Tiffany’s birthday and Ling Kee said “I thought celebrating her birthday is just an excuse to eat Korean BBQ.”


Seaweed shaker fries made a comeback so I had it almost every day.





Kyoho grapes for $10 so I bought and I cri T_T it’s so good T___T


Soft shell chilli crab burger at Relish isn’t something I’d eat again.



Me havocing in the car and I don’t even know why :/






Also found out you can get mudpie at McDonald’s for only $2 if you ordered “chocolate sundae with Oreo toppings”. You’re welcome.


I love Teppei Syokudo :D

You might be aware that Oriole is my favourite coffee joint but it got a facelift and it’s even better!!!!!

I love!!!


Boon Tong Kee because Alton wants to eat overpriced pyramid rice and made the whole army spend unnecessary money on chicken rice :/


Zong Yang’s birthday.

51st birthday.


$23 wagyu bento from Takashimaya fair :D lol :D yum :D



Hokkaido dome is my favourite bread from BreadTalk hahaha :D


Ikea food with Jasmine and Douglas!

Douglas basket and abandoned us so we went to Sunday Folks for this :D


Before class and

After class because seaweed shaker is bae hahahaha :D


Kurobuta katsudon at Tampopo :)

I love Liang Court yum



Old Airport Road with Hazel ^____^
We shared a lot of food it’s great :D




I love this chee cheong fun man!!!
Oh, we’re not done.

Went to Brawn and Brains for coffee. Nahhhh….

Saw my road so I made Hazel park somewhere to let me take this photo of CASIA CRESCENT hahahaha GEDDIT ME CRESCENT!
It was damn awkward to try to take photos by the roadside because ALL THE TAXIS KEPT SLOWING DOWN THINKING WE WANT A TAXI. Lol please I just want me.
Oh, we’re still not done.

Chye Seng Huat Hardware Coffee!!!

Yum @ everything.
Then I went home and…

ate this goodness. Hahahaha whole day!!



:D

Ok the end. Jk, it never ends because I’m so lazy. I will queue another post hahaha :D

Zion Riverside Food Centre

Wazzup. I know I’ve neglected this space once again. But that’s because I love my job so much.
Recently snagged the mayorship of the said hawker on Foursquare (LOL nobody uses it anymore) and thought it should be my duty to fill here with pictures of repetitive food choices :D

When I first found out there was a hawker I was shocked la… Cos I passed this road for 5 months before and never once noticed its existence. What’s more, it was home to so many popz stalls.

Lau Goh’s CTK. It’s sibei yums. Then I found out the black one was nice too.

Boon Tong Kee’s duck rice. Ya, you thought they made chicken rice but this is good too.

This wanton mee is niceness. But it makes me miss the one at Smith Street a lot T_T

Ingredients gao gao char kway teow. Anyway, I brought my mum to eat this and she said it’s yummy. She is damn stingy with praises so it’s safe to say it’s damn good. I’m in no position to judge char kway teow because I seldom eat char kway teow.

Chicken chop took no time at all to prepare. It’s yummy but the chicken chop is more like chicken slice I’m quite sad about that :(


The one thing there that I feel I won’t eat again…

Damn good fishballs O____O

The one time I found the store queueless so I went to the display and saw CEREAL CHICKEN omg :D

No effort chicken rice set :'( I look at the vegetable and I cry.

Also the BESTESTESTEST iced Milo in all history of hawker iced Milos. Kenjo is 24 hours but it’s more like 24 minutes. Sometimes it’s closed :'( The uncle see Douglas and I coming then pull down the shutters or something LOLOL.
Anyway I don’t think you can find a thicker iced Milo that stays thick even after all the ice has melted.


Discovered the BBQ wings are hella yummy.

Maybe any BBQ wings beside some form of water body will always taste great i.e. at East Coast Park and stuff.

When I was buying the wings I noticed the queue at this prawn noodle stall was L-shaped… so I made it a point to have some when there’s no queue. It’s so nice T_T it’s like tonkotsu with prawns.

Addiction T_T

Hazel came to meet me for dinner one day. I then realised it wasn’t me she came for. It was the fishball noodles :'(



Bak chor mee and I figured the fishball noodles are still better because their meatball had the really porky taste :/

Ayam panggang here is actually not bad but it makes me miss the one in NP :/
PRO TIP: Be a guy or get a guy to order this for bigger bang for your buck because if you’re not an auntie-killer, the $4 you spend will yield much lesser food…

Told you so…


.___.





Another annoying thing I’ve been doing? Rotating between 3 meal options (actually 2) at Ichiban Boshi thanks to their mega value off-peak meal.
That’s like $6.90 after taxes for a mini donburi, chawanmushi, miso soup and tea. The word mini shouldn’t really be there because this $6.90 will fill you. Of course, at the expense of having your meal at a weird ass timing that is neither lunch nor dinner.

Karaage don. This is why the 3 eventually became 2.

Because 3 pieces of chicken is really not worth it in comparison to the others…

Yakiniku don. You see why.

Tempura don. They don’t let me change the vegetables though. The good thing is there are colleagues who don’t eat ebi tempura (why?!) and eat eggplants and lady’s fingers (WHY?!) so we trade tempura LOL.




On days I don’t feel like eating fried food I’d opt for this.

But this usually wins because the scrambled egg between the tempura and the rice is the MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM ;__;

Other food stuff with a little more variation (who am I kidding though):

Kid’s meal at Ramen Champion. Delicious. Why aren’t adults’ meals as comforting and assorted?

Also, it came in a car. Speechless :D :D :D

Tebasaki. Bae.

Unbae.




Omurice :D


The other time twister fries made a comeback for SG50, I ate few things else.


If they served twister fries in the morning, you wouldn’t see this on the tray.

Gone case.


Banana Nutella crepe at Ned’s Crepe. Think I need to figure out how to make my own crepes and eat them forever or something.

Yuzu honey soft cream costed me a bloody $6 or something as ridiculous at Isetan’s fair :/ sucker for Japanese food T_T


Usual cheese baked pasta at Eighteen Chefs

!!!


Châteraisé had an atrium pop-up and I saw it every single day. How could I resist???????


This mikan ice-cream is beyond belief. Unfortunately, it’s some limited edition thingy that the chef at Kuriya made just for this pop-up. Lagi unfortunately, Zihui and Jes who tried some on my recommendation didn’t like it .__. ACQUIRED TASTE AH.

Castella!!

Brown sugar castella!!!

Ramune ice!

Double fantasy cream puff!

The last day of the pop-up I went overboard ._.


Bento is life. Period.

Unatama for $8 T_T yumz T_T


Surprise pasar malam. Take my money.

Pisang keju???


Fried fish bee hoon soup at Chai’s Original Sliced Fish Soup.
You know, if someone names their stall after a dish, you should order it…
Because I gehkianged and ordered fried fish I had a terrible first impression of this T_T cos I was eating bunches of flour with no fish whatsoever T_T

Ok then this one got fish. Because I bought the dish the stall was named after. Rule of thumb.

Never trusting cereal fish that aren’t from Kimly.

Pepper Lunch lor…

Triple-Os has 0 customer for as long as I’ve seen the food court and I went and got myself a burger. Really nice fries but now I’m just really skeptical about the food because how long has it been there?? It was also the day my phone shattered I had to use my phone in a plastic bag so I don’t cut myself up using it excessively.


Tony’s Pizza. X__X

Truffle fries.

Shared this 18″ with Douglas. Is eating more than a guy a cause for worry? Anyway I died when I went home. 4 slices is no joke X___X


Potato soup :D
The other time Zhu Jun was like “is this an ant?” then she called for the waiter and went “THERE’S AN ANT IN MY SOUP!!!” and I just LOL-ed because I was watching my childhood joke books in person for the first time ever hahahaha turns out it was some herb from their bread that looks really like an insect!!

Breaded chicken leg :D

Fruit tart :D
Pepper Steakhouse & Bistro seems to be always empty and I was of course pleasantly surprised to learn that the food tastes great and the set lunches are so affordable :D

This is Mike’s croissant pudding. He asked me to take a photo of it for him and then I refused to send it to him and tried to sell it to him as if it were stock .___. he still doesn’t have this picture.

Tomato soup :D

Black pepper chicken burger :D

Praline mousse tart :D


Chicken hor fun at 品味新天地 (thanks geo-tagging, I’ll never have remembered this name without you) was yums.


We were sitting beside Krispy Kreme for a month and finally we decided to buy some. I’m not a donut person.


My first time at Kenny Rogers Roasters.

The chicken soup is damn nice la!! :D

Hahahaha

Jes looks like a 35-year-old mother of Jasmine’s.


Shared this pint with Zihui. It’s damn yummy????? T_T
Anyway, I miss Zihui as a co-pilot now that she’s in UK. We didn’t even have a supper we could call successful yet! :/


Gastronomia‘s lasagne :D

New additions to my tiny Tomica collection. (I earned negative on this day thanks to the toy store T_T)

Nutella cake :D

Favourite salted caramel crodo :D


All the while I thought Don‘s logo was very sketchy so I never tried to give it a try. Mana tau the chicken pie is damn delicious T____T


Ducky at Poulet


Never really enjoyed Snickers because they always hurt my mouth since it’s a hard brick of dryness but Snickers ice-cream is something else.

Then there was once I shared this 1.6kg watermelon with Jes because it looked so good and I was craving for fruits :/
I totally loved it but everyone kept staring :( Why is it ok for you to eat Llao Llao while walking and me eating a watermelon is not?!?!!?!?!?!?!?


Jasmine & Friends. She turned 20.


Maggi goreng pattaya at Spize. It’s so spicy but it’s very nice la.
The sad thing is… the Milo dinosaur here costs $3.90 and isn’t even thicker than my $1.50 iced Milo at the hawker T_T

Other food stuff eaten when not being paid to be eating (hahahaha):

Had breakfast at Asanoya Bakery before I went to get myself a job. Yummy as before but I had to chow it down for I was almost late :/ When will I eat here without being pressed for time?


Crispy pork belly burger with fairy fries at Hambaobao. Really yummy and affordable. Except the place is really humid and dark…

Green tea bingsu at Binggojung! It’s like ice kacang on steroids!!!! Why is it that kakigori that I prefer and has been around for much longer never got its popularity?


Champignon red wine pork chop at Three Little Pigs. I felt rather upset that I spent half my day’s earning on something unsatisfactory.

Submarine baked potatoes wowowow!

Juchheim had baumkuchen ice-cream :D :D :D BAE


Red bean bingsu (hahahaha my caption then was “red beangsu” hahahahaha I’m so funniez) at Café Insadong which I thought was super expensive for its size???


Chicken wings at Farmart :D

VENISON!!!!!! :D

Cheng’s Seafood Village needs to be in charge of more zichar places man!

Went to Nathan Hartono’s charity gig with Lynette and flying Hilary :D

Strawberry hazelnut crepe at Max Brenner Chocolate Bar.


Gyoza-ya sells amazing gyoza at affordable prices O.O

Teriyaki chicken bento from Teppei Syokudo. They sell the bestest bento ever??? ;__;

Karaage bento ;___;


Xi Xiang Feng ??? yong tau foo. Who knows YTF can garner such a long queue man??


Hilary celebrated her 21st at The Refinery.

Rong Cheng bak kut teh afterwards.


I’m so boring I only drink the same shit at Koi all the time. Ice-cream hazelnut milk tea with konjac and pearls.

Teacher gave everyone Gudetama ^____^ hahahaha



The ultimate 损友 that is Chara.

Honey chicken bento from Kkul Dak. Very friendly staff but Korean bento < Japanese bento I'm so sorry…

Went to Dosukoi Sakaba after some time at Fiv五 .___.

损友 is 损友… Nobody liked sake but we got sake??? What the

But their edamame is hella good!!!!!!!! :D :D :D

Stingray .__. tastes like any other dried fish and I don’t mayonnaise.


Genius. We went to Chinatown at 10pm looking for the bae xiao long bao but forgot that shops usually are closed by then .___. So we ate the Tiong Bahru chicken rice. Soup remains damn damn damn damn good :D


Huay Kwang Thai Mookata for Fiona’s 20th :D

She was very surprised :D also bought her 5kg of russet potatoes X__X


Had my favourite Ootoya oyako don only to find they have changed the presentation.

And they reduced the size of the chawan and this one tasted like disappointment at its finest. You should all by now know that I worship this place and have high hopes for everything but tasting this was like learning that Santa doesn’t exist, etc.


Qi Ji popiah in the car.

And it’s yum!


Happy Mookata with the swagglez.

Because 梦kata is the dream. Also didn’t invite the GOH whom the event was named after .___.

Worked till 11.30pm at Changi X_X and then cabbed to freaking Boon Lay to Power with the supper club. At another table. Friends??? ;__;

Because I don’t like chilli and ikan bilis, my nasi lemak looks more like primary school mixed vegetable rice without zhap. It’s really yummy though. Or it could be that I was totally famished because I didn’t eat since starting work at 1pm? (Because by Jia Ling’s rule, sushi is a snack and I can totally agree)


Went to Ming Jia Korean Food with Jasmine after her class and had my first jjajangmyeon! It’s very nice!! :D
But you know what? I had a sauce stain on my face for an hour while shopping for dinner ingredients and not once did Jasmine try to tell me I have stuff on my face. Bitch.


Table-for-1 at Brewerkz simply because I was nearby after I finished delivering and craved my favourite soba salad :D $27 and got so many mosquito bites T_T

First time at Swee Choon Tim Sum because Chara was driving! :D


Har gow looking super sad. Since when did har gow come in twos??? T_T

This prawn beancurd roll is a ball of fire!!! Niceness.

Never…

Some #chefcasia:

Nutella-stuffed French toast and broccoli stir-fry :D



Tried baking cod but I have come to terms with my not having any affinity with the oven.

Went to Singapore Night Festival and caught an amazing performance :D



The full moon in the background makes everything even nicer.
I loved the display :) Also got an awesome spot :) Although if anything went wrong I was sure I would have died because I was constantly underneath the suspension LOL.


If you’re wondering if I made any profits at work… HAHAHA what do you think??? I spend on food as I earn T___T Just look at what I’m surrounded with T___T

Tsukada Nojo & more yums

P5050186
Some time early May I went out to dinner at Tsukada Nojo with these 2 cutie pies :D They honestly are super cute :D
Travis’ friend was working there and she too was super cute :D

Bijin nabe looks like a pot of tauhuey.
P5050180
So beautiful!!
P5050182
All we had to do was sit and eat because the staff does everything for you!
P5050185
We got free fries! They were so yummy. And to think that their loyalty programme gives you such a title even if you are jobless… it feels wonderful :)
P5050187
Oh ya, when all the collagen dissolved, we found that in it were super tender chicken!
It was a delicious pot of fats.

When we were done we were given jellies with a super sweet message!

Now, for some food photos from when I returned from Tokyo till I ate there.

Prata Planet.

Some crazy huge watermelon I found very amusing.

Favourite Loong Fatt Tau Sar Piah :D
P5010178
Glorious carrot cake from Whampoa Drive Market & Food Centre #01-34.
P5010177
Honest!

Michael Jackson from #01-52 :D

Hazel came over one day to cook stuff together :D

Odamaki-mushi for our Cooking With No Dog channel. JK. When there’s no dog, we also forgot to measure all our ingredients hahahaha :D
P4300172
The chicken meat and udon we got sucks. Other than that it was good.

We then boiled shiitake and wakame and crab sticks to finish off some leftovers.
Learn the recipe from the pro:


Got this wonderful bunch of Hokkaido omiyage for only $25!!!! :D
P5130193
After that, I bought another package for $50!
Then I think they found out they were making a huge loss and the prices of these now are back to almost normal retail price T____T
I was gonna spend $90 on another bigger package but I decided not to because I honestly was super broke for a while, thinking it’s gonna be there when things get better. Thanks for breaching my trust T___T


If you can’t yet tell, I love ham. Also I make amazing sandwiches because they are always overloaded. Tried to make a pocket and the bread tore LOL.

P4270164
Niku udon with ebi tempura at Tsuru Koshi for only $9.90! What a wonderful promotion :D
P4270166
Don’t get your hopes up because the promotion is likely over.
P4270167

P4270153
Shwen brought me to Guksu Restaurant for jeongol.
P4270155
Looks like Tsukada Nojo’s hahaha.
P4270158
Herbal chicken broth yums!
P4270159
Noodles were good too, everything else ordinary, EXCEPT the bamboo meatball thing. It tasted quite chemically and ummm I tried to take more than one bite and it’s just no :(

My Instagram is like a mini time capsule. Mostly from the long time I take to blog about the food I eat lol.
Just found this and laughed at my caption:
There’s straight juice and then there’s…

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

I’m also an aunt now!!!!! She was born while I was having fun in Tokyo DisneySea and didn’t know about her existence until I left Tokyo Disneyland because Shwen took so long to tell me this baby was my new relative after sending me a picture of newborn her. LOL!!!!!

She looks like Elffie!


I got tickets to Kinder Bueno’s movie screening of Pitch Perfect and I asked Marissa to go with me :D

Got sushi for dinner and I was famished. Took 1.5 hours looking for the damned place because it said Gardens by The Bay but it’s nowhere to be found. Who knew there was a separate bit of Gardens at the other side of the sea?!?!?!?! T___T

Was an hour late for the screening after taking a cab there and tolerating this annoying driver. But all is well because I got a nice pillow :D

It was beautiful after :) and then we were lost. LOLZ took a taxi home.

P4250152
Yummy bak kut teh for breakfast at Leon Kee Claypot Pork Rib Soup. I always liked the pepper one but this herbal one is good :D

Bunmeido’s Castella I got from Tokyo :D
I bought it because I remembered it was the shop I ordered my fake birthday cake online from and it was damn good. And also this packaging is soooo cute!!

P4230143
Dinner at Ichiban Boshi with Shwen.
P4230145
Salmon nitsuke. YUMMY!!!
P4230146
Teriyaki chicken don.
P4230148
Tempura Moriawase.
P4230149
It seemed as though every time I eat with Shwen we never ever have a normal one-plate meal and we eat until we’re on the brink of death.
It surprised me how yummy the food was because I always had the impression Ichiban Boshi was a mega chain with inconsistent food. I am so sorry why did I even have that impression?? T___T

P4210141
Sunday Folks again.

Then went karaoke and when we tried our best to sing Hokkien songs LOL the system shut down and couldn’t go back on HAHAHAHAHA.

Fiona was driving me home but we went to Happy Mookata for dinner first. We nearly died from the buffet :D


Went out with Pignette!!!!! :D

Tori karaage don at Isetan I love bentos :D

Went to the Science Centre and found my next lunch. We left quite soon because it was quite boring T_T except for that liquid nitrogen show we went to and the whole thing exploded :D

LIKE A JAR OF CASIA!!!!!!! :D :D :D :D :D
:D :D :D :D IT’S A ME :D :D


Hokkien mee from NTUC FoodFare yum.

Brought my mum to Happy Mookata and she finally said it was yummy after I tried to convince her that mookata is better than Korean BBQ, because she’s not had any mookata before.


Some dumpling noodles at Crystal Jade before I made the journey to the east.

I was early so I went and bought myself an ice-cream and then got scolded by SMRT for eating at the station. ??? But 7-Eleven is right there?!?!?!?!?!

Skating with Amanda in East Coast Park and found a chicken!
Didn’t know she was a slug!!! I had to skate and pull her because she was so lazy -_____-

And she spent lots of time sitting at the jetty and wishing she was back in Maldives. I wish I’d been to Maldives!!! -___-

Yummy beach fare! I miss eating BBQ foods by beaches T_T

We then went to Parkway Parade? Or something like that. The new stuff in the east are foreign to me. Then she went home and I waited for my mum to come pick me up.
P4130119
Got her a piece of gold brownie for her birthday from Chalk Farm!
Then I found myself back at East Coast Park -____- because we’re in the east and my mum loves seafood and it’s her birthday so what better reasons do we have to not Long Beach? Actually we wanted to eat at some other crab place but it’s closed la… LOL!
P4130121
Broccoli with scallops a must-have :D

Very nice prawn mee at ???? WHERE ?????? It’s at Little Road… opposite Old Street Bak Kut Teh… in a very dim coffee shop… then there’s this store. Yummy!
Then I went to Pioneer Junior College to look for Marissa at her art exhibition!

This is her piece called Weave.
She commented on my picture “nice edit!” but then I did nothing to it LOL. People I know these days literally take hours to edit one image to post online (I witnessed Yuxuan doing that) and I can’t even be bothered.


Used the cute little noritama I got from a random combini in Tokyo to make these cute little onigiri :D

YUM I LOVE MY COOKING *shameless*

Ok, I’m super hungry right now. My dinner at 6pm comprised a salad, 5 little piah balls and 6 slices of Sara Lee pound cake. T___T
What was I thinking to look through all my pictures of food in my state??? T_______T
I have not blogged about graduation and more food yet… So look forward to it!! (Although I don’t know when)
OH and also these really nice gyozas I made a few days ago!!! I will show all of you my beautiful gyozas!!!! :D

P5300251

P5300250

It’s also about time I go replace my stolen phone because I have no motivation to do anything at all and the spare Android is so laggy and frustrating to use >:( It’s been a month!!

FREE ADMISSION

In celebration of Singapore’s Golden Jubilee, Singapore Favourite Food Village 2015 revives one of Singapore’s iconic and long-lost makan place – Ellenborough Market. If, like me, you weren’t born yet, you might not know that the 1800s – 1960s Ellenborough Market by the Singapore River was well-known for its fresh seafood and Teochew hawker fare, as many Teochews resided in that area. The market is also more affectionately known as ‘Xin Pat Sat’ or ‘Teochew Market’.

Taking ‘A Wok Down Memory Lane’ at Ellenborough Market will allow you to discover the stories behind the market nicknamed the ‘New Market’ and ‘Teochew Market’ and one of the authentic hawkers of the old Ellenborough Market along with other Teochew cuisine and local delights hawkers.

Top 10 Dishes to Look Out For

6 Traditional Teochew Food

  1. Teochew Fishball Noodles by Ming Fa Noodles House Pte Ltd
    With 42 years of experience, the fishball noodles from Ming Fa Noodles House will definitely not disappoint. Founder Lim Chye Kang started the business along the old Ellenborough Market (Clarke Quay) in 1946 to earn a livelihood as a pushcart vendor. In the 1950s, Mr Lim Chye Kang opened its first roadside stall within the vicinity of the “Xin Pa Sat”. His son, Mr Lim Gek Meng, took over the family-run business and expanded Ming Fa’s food offerings in 1973.Using the traditional recipe passed down from generations, Ming Fa’s fishballs are made daily with fish as the only main ingredient to retain its freshness and bounciness. Their menu has expanded to a variety of noodles such as minced pork noodles, chicken cutlet noodles, laksa and curry chicken.
  2. Teochew Steamed Pomfret with Preserved Soya Bean Sauce by Swissötel Merchant Court
    Chef Jason’s (Swissötel Merchant Court) Steamed Pomfret dish is based on a recipe which he cooks regularly for his own family. Aside from selecting a fresh Silver Pomfret, Chef Jason flavours the fish with sour preserved plums, fresh shiitake mushrooms and slices of ginger, carrots and tomatoes. Chef Jason’s addition of succulent shiitake mushrooms to increase the dish’s savoury notes makes it enjoyable for diners of all ages. In true Teochew style, Chef Jason also serves the steamed fish with a dipping sauce of fermented soy bean paste.
  3. Cold Crab, Teochew Style by Swissötel Merchant Court
    Cold Crab - Teochew Style
    For the Teochew Cold Crab dish, Chef Jason (Swissötel Merchant Court) keeps very close to the original recipe of selecting live market-fresh crabs, steaming at a high temperature with a splash of Chinese Wine and then chilling the cooked crabs before serving it cold. A timeless classic such as this, Chef Jason believes, should be preserved for the enjoyment of future generations.
  4. Lao Fu Zi Char Kway Teow
    Char Kway Teow is a noodle dish with humble beginnings. Originally invented as a low-cost yet energising meal for the labourers in Singapore, it was often sold by fishermen, farmers, and cockle gatherers, doubling up as char kway teow hawkers in the evening to supplement their income.With its long history and traditional recipe, it is no surprise that Lao Fu Zi Char Kway Teow is an old name that almost everyone can identify with when it comes to a plate of hot piping plate of fried kway teow. Stir-fried in pork lard over very high heat with light and dark soy sauce, chilli, belachan, Chinese sausage slices, fish cake, cockles, bean sprouts, chopped Chinese chives and egg, this fragrant noodle dish will have you begging for more!
  5. Teochew Braised Duck by Mr Duck
    Braised Duck
    Braised ducks or Lor Ark come in two different styles. While the Hokkien-style offers thick and sweet gravy, the Teochews specialize in making light and savoury ‘Lor Chap’ or braising sauce. The key to serving flavourful braised duck is in the braising sauce: a mixture of dark soy sauce, soya sauce, five spices powder.Mr Duck’s braising sauce also consists of unique blend of herbs for a healthier recipe that can fit into everyone’s diet. The sauce has been well-liked by customers all these years and the traditional secret recipe has been passed on from its previous senior head chef to the next generation’s chefs.

    The whole duck is then lightly pan-fried and stewed for hours in the braising sauce for a moist and tender texture. To ensure that the moisture of the duck meat is not lost, the art of chopping meat is also highly emphasized by traditional Teochew hawkers. Thin and wide slices of meat, accompanied by braised rice and soy sauce eggs, completes the hearty meal.

  6. Teochew Bak Kut Teh by Xiao Chen Gu Shi
    Bak Kut Teh
    Bak Kut Teh literally means ‘meat bone tea’ in English. In Singapore, there are two styles of cooking: the clear pepperish Teochew broth and the black herbal Hokkien version. Did you know that Bak Kut Teh does not contain tea as an ingredient despite its name? The ‘tea’ in the name actually refers to the accompanying pot of Chinese Oolong tea, which is believed to aid in digestion and to rid of the greasiness from this dish.In the early days, Chinese coolies formed the early backbone of Singapore’s labour force and were engaged mainly in hard physical labour. After a hard day’s work, the Chinese coolies would gather and have a bowl of Bak Kut Teh as their staple meal to replenish lost energy.

    Story of Chen (小陈故事) was inspired by the historical significance and presence of Bak Kut Teh roadside stalls and vendors along the Singapore River, and had then decided to open up a shop front with traditional fixtures and decor along the same vicinity to relive old times and the ‘birthplace’ of Bak Kut Teh.

4 Fusion Food

  1. Carrot Cake by Everything Foods
    Carrot Cake
    Fried carrot cake or Chai Tow Kway is traditionally a Teochew dim sum, made by mixing grated radish (white carrot), rice flour and water to form a paste which is then steamed in a rectangular pan. The resulting “carrot cake” is sliced into rectangular blocks, and then fried on a metal griddle till the outsides are crispy. The version served by Teochew hawkers are usually prepared by frying steamed carrot cake with preserved turnip, diced garlic, eggs, and fish sauce instead of soya sauce.Invented by the Teochew Sisters, Candy and Jenny from Everything Foods, Carrot Cake with Salted Egg Sauce combines the traditional Teochew recipe with a modern twist. Simmered with fresh crabs, the salted egg sauce is then drizzled on their rendition of the Carrot Cake to give it a light crab fragrance. Other Carrot Cake flavours that Everything Foods will also be bringing to the crowd are Tom Yam, Sour Cream and Onion, Hot and Spicy and Barbecue.
  2. Truffle Wanton Noodles by Bee Kee
    For the love of Wanton Noodles, Jo Ann, the founder of Bee Kee, was inspired to modernise Wonton Noodle with a special ingredient.Known as Wanton Mee locally, there are two variants of this Cantonese noodle dish: wonton noodles served in steaming hot broth; or noodles served dry with seasoning and soup on a separate bowl. Traditionally, the wantons – which refer to dumplings in Cantonese – are boiled served with soup. However, in recent years fried wantons have emerged as a hot favourite amongst Singaporeans.

    As Truffle Oil dishes have caused hype amongst the younger generation, Jo Ann decided to infuse it into their noodles. The Char Siew on the noodles is also torched aburi-style to caramelize the outside and the soft bone is braised overnight for the melt-in-the-mouth texture.

  3. Ondeh Ondeh Churros
    Suyi and Jeremy started their first concept café, Churros Factory, in 2014 at I12 Katong Mall. Upon starting up their pop-up cafe, they came to notice that there was a high demand and a potential opportunity to further expand their humble start-up. Since then, they have placed focus on creating more unique flavours to suit the local taste.Being situated at Katong, a vibrant Peranakan neighborhood, Jeremy and Suyi were inspired by the Peranakan culture and were inspired to create Ondeh Ondeh Churros, an East-meets-West recipe that eventually became their signature dish. The Ondeh Ondeh churros has since been a hit at their pop up stall and a sensational hype on both social and marketing media platforms.

    The Ondeh Ondeh Churros replicates the look and feel of the Peranakan Kueh, Ondeh Ondeh. It is infused with Pandan flavour and paired with a gula melaka dip, topped with coconut shavings. Churros Factory aims to be globally recognised as the Singapore brand of Churros with various adapted recipes.

  4. Honey Hoisin Orange Glazed Pork Ribs
    A modern take on the traditional Char Siew BBQ Pork Ribs, Fern & Kiwi fuses the western style with a dash of acidic flavour and the oriental method of roasting the ribs for a red glossy sheen that warrants a sweet glaze beneath.Fern & Kiwi originated in Christchurch, New Zealand featuring the best New Zealand food. Within 24 years, they had set up 21 cafes all around Australia, and Singapore is one of the first overseas ventures. Highly raved since its opening, Fern & Kiwi proudly brings New Zealand food closer to Singaporeans and constantly innovates by whipping up fusion dishes to cater to the local palates.

For Your Entertainment

Teochew Opera Porridge
Apart from savouring the rustic flavours of traditional cuisine, learn a tip or two from the award-winning celebrity chef, Eric Low, while he showcases the authentic way of preparing Teochew Opera Porridge.

Live Cooking Demonstrations by the various Teochew chefs are available every weekend from 24 July to 2 August 2015.

As the name implies, this porridge was sold in street hawker stalls during the heyday of Teochew street operas. They would travel with the performing troupes around the island and business was brisk as good performing troupes could easily attract large audiences. This porridge made an ideal supper treat as each performance ended rather late close to midnight.

While feasting to your heart’s content, you will be entertained by the traditional Teochew Opera, Tok Tok Chiang, which is co-founded by local celebrity Nick Shen Wei Jun. Driven by his passion for Chinese Opera, Nick Shen founded Tok Tok Chiang in 2010 to reconnect youths with their cultural roots and keep the dying art of Chinese Opera alive. With refreshing elements such as magic tricks and bilingual performances, Tok Tok Chiang remains relevant by reaching out to people of different races in racially diverse Singapore.

Be entertained by the traditional Teochew Opera every weekend from 24 July to 2 August 2015 by Tok Tok Chiang and Nam Hwa Teochew Opera Troupe!

1 Day in Batam

#casiainbatam Flickr


I went to Batam with Marissa last week! She paid for my share of the Groupon deal as a belated birthday present LOL thanks BBG (no, it’s not babygirl (she’s turning 20 this year!), it’s Batam Bebek Goreng). For $40 + $20 ferry tax + $6.50 ferry tax, I find this trip a darn good steal! Which explains why so many people have gone on the exact same tour (literally the whole itinerary). Google it!

Even then, I won’t spare anyone of this stupid image of the store front of Chocolate House, which was the first stop upon leaving Sekupang Ferry Terminal.
P6160267
Honestly quite boring and the whole bus (15 tourists) went in and out empty-handed.
P6160268

P6160273
Went to Maha Vihara Duta Maitreya Buddhist Temple!
P6160274
It is filled with the Laughing Buddha.
P6160271
P6160272
There’s a whole stretch of super cute statues but I only took photo of this because he was in one of the most comfortable positions ever.
P6160269
P6160275
*can’t be bothered to straighten this picture or wait for the roads to clear*
P6160287
At this point I was really hungry and lunch was hours away T_T
P6160291
P6160292
Found a sign pointing to a restaurant and, from the other end of the aisle I saw a signboard that said “vegetarian restaurant”! I nearly wept! Of course there wasn’t gonna be any meat in a temple T_T
P6160294
But soon I found out why the Buddha was laughing. Or Buddhas were laughing.
P6160295
THIS.
My fondest memory of Batam when I was there a decade ago was their fried potato tossed in flavouring powders.
P6160299
And while this takes on a new shape, IT WAS AMAZING AND WAS ONLY 50 CENTS A STICK!!!!!!!!!!! I got one more but that one was cut too thin and chip-like crispy. Still, I should’ve gotten all of them!!!

Next was boring shopping at ??????
P6160301
Magnum was $1.80 so I had to buy it right? Not really… it wasn’t very yummy and I should’ve eaten other wacky ice-cream.

P6160312
Lapis of lapis at Batam Layer Cakes. Didn’t get to try samples because it was so crowded and I just didn’t want to squeeze in. Bought a box of kueh lapis with prunes for my mum because she told me to buy one if it was below $30, and it was strategically $29 lol. It smelled really good but the layers were a mess of waves and they tasted ok, although I’m no big fan of kueh lapis… (I LOVE BAUMKUCHEN THOUGH)

P6160314
FINALLY it was lunch time!!! This seafood lunch at Golden Prawn 933 is included in the package. Talk about value!!
P6160317
It was not bad!
P6160318
Except I limited myself to eating rice + calamari (yum) + this corn soup made of starch (unexpectedly yum). Because I don’t eat gong gong, sambal kangkong is coated in sambal, the fish was fried and bony and slightly spicy so I gave up trying, every prawn was stained with mayonnaise except one (so I ate that one), and I had nobody to help me with the crab and it didn’t have the giant pincer (the only part I know how to eat without assistance).

We were going around Golden City and we were at this stop for activities.
P6160319
$6 for 15 arrows. Bullseye and I’ll get a free ride on the flying fox.
P6160327
But I sucked T_T
P6160331
So did Marissa. She also offered to pay $6 for me to fly through a jungle and over a pond.
P6160340
Putting on my harness as I stared at what might kill me.
P6160338
The biggest challenge was really trying to scale this tower on steep stairs with only one side of rails to hold on to. So I was grabbing on to dear life with both hands because I would plunge to my death if I were to slip. I should have been belayed before ascending lor T_T
P6160347
Jumping off, it was quite lame and not exactly fast or anything…
P6160348
Before I left I asked the dude how I was gonna get down and he said his friend is at the other end. So ok.
BUT when I was approaching the end THERE WAS NOBODY???? So I was like “OMG HOW DO I STOP? I AM GOING TO DIE?”
P6160351
Then they slowly appeared and pushed a ladder to me LOL. Everybody was laughing? Sadistic as hell??? :(
P6160352
P6160354
First time on a zip-line and I survived! WHO’S LAUGHING NOW????
P6160357
P6160360
Sisters Rivlyn and Rivy (Ikr I thought my name was unconventional) were the only ones other than myself to do stuff here lol.

P6160362
Go-kart!!!!!!
P6160364
They give us shower caps to reduce the grossness of shared helmets but man do they smell terrible. Mine was damp and the face shield wouldn’t stay up nor down so it’s part smelly and part obstructed vision.
I chose the faster vehicle but they gave me a bloody slow one so instead of zoom zoom I was looking at people overtaking me and all .__.

Then everyone was going into a massage parlour and I decided to spend an hour in the vicinity instead.
P6160370
Walking out they were like trying to sell me drinks and I saw coconut (ya they were all on the ground and literal roadside) so I told them “You sell coconuts? Ok. I’ll come back later. Maybe.”
Took a long time to cross the road to a mall and went to a smelly arcade (mostly adults smoking with like 5 kids around) and exchanged tickets for 2 erasers LOL. Really wanted to play basketball but the kids were hogging the machines and when I returned expecting them to be done, I saw that they have claimed a basketball and was playing soccer with it.
Took an even longer time to cross over again.
P6160373
Got 10 sticks of chicken satay for $1.50 O__O
P6160376
They asked “Rice?” and I said no and I still got rice? What are they earning??? O__O
P6160378
Not bad but they’re so skimpy with meat (I understand completely)($1.50 leh, how to hiam) and most of them had only 2 chunks.
P6160384
Went to get a coconut. They have pushed a punctured cart to the roadside and put some coconuts on it and called it a stall LOL. The flesh was so tender :D the juice wasn’t perfect but it didn’t taste bad. It was also $1.50.

Went to BCS Mall. Found an optometry selling frames with prescription lenses for only $18!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I also found a really cute frosted pink frame but it would take 2 days for it to be done and I was returning to Singapore the next day T_T
P6160387
Was on the bus and suddenly the front burst into song because it was Rivlyn’s birthday and they had a cake LOL happy birthday Rivlyn!

It was 5pm when the bus left to take everyone to the ferry terminal or their hotels. I was really pissed having to sit in the bus for more than 2 hours when I really want to go to Nagoya Hills and grab some A&W for dinner! Why were we the last? T_T
P6160388
21st floor at Nagoya Mansions.
P6160389

Went out and walked in the dark to Nagoya Hills. It was 8pm >:(
P6160393
Also had to witness something disturbing while I was trying to grab a shot of the mosque and I didn’t even have time to compose or focus anything and we left.
P6160394
BAE!!!
P6160395
Got myself a kid meal because I wanted an A&W pencil case.
P6160396
Also upgraded my root beer to a float and got curly fries.
P6160397
Their chicken is so much better than KFC’s I don’t understand why A&W left Singapore!!!! :(
P6160398
Bought a waffle even though I was already pregnant with non-stop feeding and was super full, because my mum swears by A&W’s waffles. What a disappointment having to bite into hard batter which only tasted good at the end when my ice-cream made it soggy…

Went to Hypermart on the hunt for mi goreng :D
P6160401
It was a wall of instant noodles!! I got 10 packs of Indomie’s :D
P6160402
P6160403
Their Yakult was a tad smaller (why?) but a 5-pack was only 85 cents?!?!?!?! I didn’t buy it. Hahahaha. Why?????

Went back to the hotel by taxi. $5 is a rip-off but it was late. Bathed and slept to the monotonous voice of documentaries (one of the best ways to sleep even though they’re entertaining) some time around midnight after being awake for god knows how long?
I woke up the day before at 5.30pm because I was dreaming I was a Hogwarts student and was involved in a war and waking up at 2.30pm I went back to sleep to resume the great action LOL. Then I couldn’t sleep so I stayed up and only intermittently napped otw to the hotel. Basically I didn’t sleep for the whole of Tuesday and more.

P6170404
Woke up and heard Marissa in the shower so I was like wth what time is it now? So I checked and it was 6am. Turns out Marissa didn’t know what time it was and didn’t even bother to check HAHAHAHAHA!
P6170405
Hotel breakfast with Marissa’s colleague who was also staying at the hotel.
P6170406
Sunnies on toast darn good :D (of course, I brought the toast to the egg station myself)

P6170407
On the bus to Batam Centre I wanted to take photos of the ‘Welcome to Batam’ sign in the forest but I hesitated and missed everything. I should’ve filmed the beautiful roundabout. Why was my camera inside my bag and not around my neck anyway? :/

Had time to spare before boarding our ferry back and we crossed over to Mega Mall. Marissa wanted to eat KFC but then she was like “aiya we can eat that in Singapore. Let’s eat A&W again.” LOL!
P6170412
P6170413
YUM
P6170414
Chicken soup was nice! Lots of chicken chunks and vegetables in it :D
P6170415
God is real.

P6170418
Back to Singapore.
The end!


Yesterday morning Fiona called me and asked if I had my passport. She wanted me to go to JB today to eat. OF COURSE I WANTED TO. But I have class in the evening and I don’t know how to return to Singapore by myself LOL.
The end (of sad story of the adventure that never happened)!

Day 8

Last day and Yuxuan wanted to sleep in. I woke up early and walked all the way down to Sendagaya to look for a unicycle shop. I was bent on getting one here because I have no idea where mine went and I’ve not even learnt how to ride one yet.
It was raining and windy and I was dying trekking from the apartment past Harajuku station T_T Checked the temperature to see if I was going to make it alive. 3°C. Nope. I decided to steal an abandoned umbrella if I chanced upon one. I found one!!! It was damaged T_T Continued my journey in the rain and finally found Sendagaya Elementary School. It was a miracle considering my atrocious map-reading skills.
I was too early and I needed a place to shelter myself and get breakfast. Apparently 8.30am was too early for shops to be opened -____- So I went into a combini and got microwaved bento for breakfast…
IMG_6536
Slowly I began to feel at my fingers again :) 8 days and I didn’t manage to get a pair of gloves .__.
Went to look for the shop again now that I have found the street. Crap. I didn’t know how to read addresses. How shall I find the building?? Asked a passerby and in that absurd weather he kindly obliged (although I was absolutely clueless as to what he was muttering) and even shared his umbrella with me LOL! Ok, we were just a few units past it and then I found the place! Thanked him and I went up.
Became illiterate when I entered the office. Also found out they had only one model left in stock and I had to pre-order online for the model I want because it just so happens I didn’t have enough yen on me to buy what’s there -______-
Such a torturous and pointless trip T_T Anyway, it’s still manufacturing and I can only expect it to arrive after July T_T

Walked back to Harajuku station and concluded I would die if I continued on foot so I took a short train ride to the next stop and relished in its warmth. Went back into the apartment to find Yuxuan about to abandon me with a note LOL. Then she went out shopping and lunching while I snuggled in the duvet to get myself out of hypothermia LOL :D

Packed up and left for Shibuya station around 1pm to catch the Narita Express to the airport!
Like losers we had to give up our seats for someone who reserved it. It was super crowded by then and the train master came by and told us we had to exchange our stub for a reserved seat ticket -___- There was no such instructions on the stub??? T_____T
image
That aside, the toilet is a dream!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Narita Airport was not messy but we got lost for a while .__.
image
Found Traveler’s Factory and bought a bunch of MTN goodies for cheap!!! I mean to start on a journal but I haven’t touched it yet lol. I will soon (I last said the same thing 2 months ago LOL). It was here I exhausted all my yen and was left with no more than $2.
IMG_6538
Ebi kakiage udon for late lunch I paid Yuxuan in SGD for because I told you I had no more yen hahahaha :D
IMG_6539
Saw ice-cream in a vending machine and it was my last vending machine moment :'( so I found just enough coins to buy this Lady Borden one and it was yummy!!!!!! :D

image
Goodbye sakura land T_T
THEN
A siren sounded and the plane came to a halt .__.
With all these aviation disasters lately, I bought a travel safety omamori at a shrine and had it in my duffel bag overhead. Nothing’s gonna happen!
That’s right… the plane didn’t even take off yet!!! The flight was delayed for 1.5 hours.
Was thirsty as hell and asked for some water. Flight attendant was like sure :D but then she got her crew and started from the top and served EVERYONE water while I slowly let the drought in my mouth take me. You’re welcome guys… ;___;
Watched the sky turned dark as I weeped internally. There goes my chance at a glimpse of Mt. Fuji .__. In fact, both my window seats had been disrupted and I just :'(
The plane took off and I was dejected with the vast darkness out there so I promptly went to the toilet and removed my contacts before the meals came.

Bloody hell. I looked out after that and the night sky was sprinkled with the most magnificent glitter T____T I strained and strained by my myopia wouldn’t let me admire at the stars at all T_T
So I turned to my camera. Also used the blanket to block out the internal lights and reflections but…
IMG_6551
What the…?
IMG_6547
It wouldn’t focus…
IMG_6544
And then the wing’s light started to fight for attention…
IMG_6540
I just wished you guys could see the stars (jk I wished I could see the stars) with close to none of those city light pollutions.

image
The problem with blogging 2 months late is that I have no idea what these are anymore .___.
I just know the potatoes were awesome :D
So I reached Singapore after intermittent naps and movies… and since then I have never not complained about the humidity of this tropical island.

THE END. (Finally) (I thought this would never end) (YAY!)

Day 7

Had we planned earlier, we could’ve moved to a place closer to Maihama since we had to take this long route twice for two consecutive days. But no biggie because bento :D I want to buy every bento there is but I can’t :(
IMG_6363
Saw this cutie octopus bowl at Gindaco somewhere in Tokyo station so… I bought it.
IMG_6364
Although it was stained with mayonnaise and tartar everywhere T_T it’s too cute!!
IMG_6365
It was a bowl of delicious lies. Fake tako (hotdog). Fake takoyaki (delicious potatoes). I swear both of us were fooled into thinking they were takoyaki!!!!! Very delicious soboro don nonetheless :D
Continued our journey to Disneyland after yummy breakfast of deceit lol…

IMG_6377
We didn’t have to take a monorail to Disneyland but the walk was so pleasant.
IMG_6376
IMG_6375
The sky was gloomy and I think that contributed to a theme park that was surprisingly not crowded :D
IMG_6374
Why am I still the only person in colour?? :/
IMG_6367
Upon entering, some excited caucasian beamed and said “sumimasen!!” and we both just huh??? LOL he thought it was “hello” and Yuxuan (using new found knowledge) told him “sumimasen” means “excuse me” HAHAHAHA :D

IMG_6378

IMG_6382
Took a picture with Fairy Godmother because she had no queue at all (poor thing) but of course!! Her face is immensely creepy T__T Still really funny Yuxuan cried (out of happiness) when she hugged her OMG hahahaha :D
IMG_6385
IMG_6387
Distracted by Tweedledum/Tweedledee… Don’t know how I managed to capture a shot with all faces looking totally high??
IMG_6389
IMG_6392
Who could care about the little pigs when there’s a little Donald Duck soooooo cute!!!!!
IMG_6393
He waddled like a duck too! Not sure if it’s normal diaper baby walk or he’s really good at cosplay at such a young age :)
IMG_6394
Why can kids get away with lying on the ground yet when I do it people ask me “hobo ah?”
IMG_6395
Daisy didn’t give a shit about us T____T I really should have lied about my birthday, get a sticker and get special treatment :(
IMG_6396
Disney marketing game strong.
IMG_6397
The day just started and this princess already bought something? My childhood pales looking at the lives of the many kids here!!

(photo stolen from Yuxuan)
Was gonna pass my camera to Yuxuan but her mother offered instead. Yuxuan took this too!
IMG_6398
She also knows she’s a princess. They don’t cosplay. They completely transform. Like that baby Donald.
IMG_6399
Donald!!!!!!!!!!!! I like Donald Duck but turns out he doesn’t like me :( No photos for me :(

(picture stolen from Yuxuan)
Yuxuan was chasing him as he walked away and he looked into her camera!!!! I happened to photobombed her shot so… I had a picture with Donald! :) *delusional*
IMG_6400
Pluto! He was about to walk away so we chased after him… He was like hi and all that then he got distracted by a baby in a stroller and ran away!!!! :(
IMG_6401
But I finally got a picture with him lol. The cons of going to Disneyland when you are no longer a child by age :(

IMG_6402
The bicycle piano!!!!
IMG_6403
The pianist (in super cute Easter getup) also behaved like a rabbit, hopping up and down WHILE playing crazy happy tunes.
IMG_6404
HELLA COOL!!!!!!!!

IMG_6406
IMG_6409
IMG_6413
Hello MTV and welcome to my crib :)
IMG_6415
All these people on my driveway!
IMG_6416
Duck in my flowerbed!
IMG_6417
JK but how wonderful it’d be if I could live here :D
IMG_6422

IMG_6427
Topiary win.

IMG_6428
Beautiful mosaic walls retelling the story of Cinderella :)
IMG_6429
IMG_6430
I thought she ran DOWN the stairs though…
Entered this dazzling glass shop called The Glass Slipper, meant for filthy rich people to flaunt their wealth I think.
IMG_6432


IMG_6431
IMG_6433
Was scorning at the crazy price of this castle model and a tourist heard me and LOLed. It’s crazy.
IMG_6435

Hippity-Hoppity Springtime!!!!!!!!
IMG_6436
They had raincoats on because of the wet weather LOL!
IMG_6437
IMG_6439
The song was really nice too hahaha :D
IMG_6440
IMG_6441
IMG_6442
Marie is too cute!
IMG_6443
Minnie waved AT me (I don’t care if there’s a kid behind me ok… it’s me she’s waving to) :D :D :D

IMG_6445
Castle Carousel.
IMG_6447
Thought of Julie Andrew’s carousel horse Jingles at the other Disneyland. I love Julie Andrews :)
IMG_6448
I tried to take a mirror selfie but it was unsuccessful.
IMG_6451
I LOVE the décor of the Queen of Hearts Banquet Hall, both inside and out!
IMG_6452
The facade of It’s A Small World is so cute!
IMG_6486
Walked past it again later just in time for the 15-minute interval :D
IMG_6485
Wanted to take a video but I was too slow and naaahhhhhhh….
IMG_6453
IMG_6454
Gadget’s Go Coaster was surprisingly fun despite being made for kids :/

IMG_6455
Impressive pulley décor that people probably pay no heed.
IMG_6456
Intrigued by this little Goofy spinning popcorns :) It’s all the little details that kill me ^__^
IMG_6457
Disney’s topiary really are the top :D
IMG_6488
IMG_6458
Space Mountain was really fun!! It’s super fast and seems to go on for very long. The lighting was cool but after a while I died X__X
IMG_6459
Grand Circuit Raceway I found super fun but Yuxuan disliked it…
IMG_6462
IMG_6469
I think it’s because it’s my first time behind the wheel (albeit fake V___V) after 1 year 2 months 3 days since getting my licence -____-
IMG_6471
This was my second ride where Yuxuan became a parent (like Amanda’s father lol) who takes photos for me hahaha :D
IMG_6477
Reckless driver lol.
IMG_6481
IMG_6482

IMG_6484
Haunted Mansion is one of my favourites :D We all know I’m a pussy at horror stuff and I was shitting bricks getting into the buggy. Turns out it was a joy ride with the most spectacular visuals nowhere near creepy! The buggy goes slowly and rotates you to the appropriate scene of focus. Holography everywhere!!!!!!! :D
My happiness doesn’t end when the ride does because it was even funnier at the exit!!!!!!
IMG_6483
The funniest headstones EVER. We were the only ones laughing, possibly because the bulk of visitors are Japanese?
Ray N Carnation – Reincarnation hahaha
Rustin Peese – Rest in peace hahahaha
Sue Pernatural – Supernatural hahahahaha
I. L. Beback – I’ll be back HAHAHAHAHAHAHA
M. T. Tomb – Empty tomb HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA I had a great laugh standing there regardless of all the stares :D

(photo stolen from Yuxuan)

IMG_6487
6 Goofys. I don’t know how a group of friends can agree to buying a bright orange sweater and bright green beanie? Do they wear them only in Disney or…? Anyway, while I’m obsessed with bindis, the Japanese are sticking stickers on their faces and sometimes gems and rhinestones all over their faces haphazardly. I need to live in Japan???
IMG_6489
Lunch at Pan Galactic Pizza Port!
IMG_6490
Got a chicken? mushroom? tomato? calzone. It tasted ok…
IMG_6491
No idea what these were but I bought them for the container #marketingbait. Yummy little mochis? with vanilla, chocolate and strawberry fillings.
IMG_6492
IMG_6493
IMG_6494
IMG_6495
IMG_6496
I can’t remember if we took Splash Mountain (I have a vague impression we did).
Confused with Big Thunder Mountain where Yuxuan lost her week-old iPhone 6.
Anyway, after understanding how the lockers were not really useful as you have to bring all your belongings on board rides, I brought a tote bag to carry all my stuff on top of my super useful mackintosh. Yuxuan just put her phone in her pocket and her phone flew out mid-ride?
TIP: Don’t rent lockers if you don’t have to

Rode Beaver Brothers Explorer Canoes because I really wanted to boat. Please don’t. Arms would ache just trying to turn out -____-
Pirates of the Caribbean… great series, terrible ride. The most boring ride going at the slowest pace forcing us to admire the workmanship of the puppets… And smelled like chlorine -___-
By now you should also realise that my ride sequence is all jumbled up because we browsed in orderly fashion but the Fast Passes are a mess.

IMG_6497
Woody! Bastard kept turning the other way avoiding my direction as I followed him about 300° before he saw me -____-
IMG_6499
And finally accepted my presence :D

(photo stolen from Yuxuan)
Jessie was busy signing some kid’s autograph book and Yuxuan tried to stealth a selfie (with success) but she turned around and gestured us to wait (but she never did bother about us after that). See guys, all you parents please bring your children to Disney if you can because when you’re not a little baby you are nothing to them!!!!
IMG_6501
IMG_6502
IMG_6503
Really wanted to ride the Mark Twain Riverboat but we gave it a miss as we were pressed for time…
IMG_6504

We went to the visitor lounge area to report her phone loss and then to where she believed she lost her phone. Then she waited there in the ultra cold wind while they looked for it.
I went to eat at Queen of Hearts Banquet Hall. It was so bold of us to just part ways with literally zero form of communications (she had no phone and the pocket wifi was in the locker) but we reunited when I paid for my food.
IMG_6505
IMG_6506
IMG_6507
IMG_6508
Ordered more things than I could eat and Yuxuan refused to share!!!!!!!!!!!!
IMG_6511
Roasted chicken! Not bad :)
IMG_6512
At the end of the line the server asked if I wanted rice or bread. She didn’t say it like it was an optional thing. So I was like uhhh bread. -____- I wished I didn’t uhhh bread.
IMG_6514
When I saw this, I burst out laughing (mind you, I was alone in the queue) and decided to get it since it wasn’t that big nor expensive. About 5″ diameter for like $13 or so, so why not!!! It looked and tasted super fresh too!!!!! It was really delicious albeit too creamy to solo without discarding cream (Yuxuan wouldn’t even take ONE bite for me).
image
“Happy Unbirthday” is pretty much the best phrase yet. I believe in celebrating EVERY day and with cake (although I don’t practise this yet (I will someday)) because every day is important, and Happy Unbirthday is just about the best excuse to eat cake on a day not your birthday!!! I love it :D

IMG_6517
Hurried to get a spot for “Once Upon A Time“, the castle projection :D
IMG_6519
IMG_6520
We found a really good spot, everyone was seated and the view was unobstructed except for a stupid umbrella.
P4070104
Then suddenly, there was an announcement that it would be cancelled due to the weather T________T
SERIOUSLY????????? Nobody gives a shit about the wet floor!! Then we left T____T
Yuxuan got a coffee and an announcement came again. It was a glimmer of hope in all the sorrow of the gloomy doomy night. The show would resume in 15 minutes if the weather improves!!!!!!!!!
Ran back right quick and everyone was standing T___T
IMG_6523
!!!!!!!! Ganchiong cannot focus -__-
So I turned to using my phone instead. What a terrible idea to get all the grains .___. (also because my memory card of both cameras were on the brink of full capacity).

*gasp*
I was going to film the whole thing and somewhere around the Alice in Wonderland part, my camera beeped because it had no more memory T___T So I deleted the great clip I sacrificed my arm for (I held the thing up for a good 10 minutes at least) to make space for the fireworks.


You’re welcome :) Also thought the Beast scene was cool with all the lightning and I got lucky with some pyrotechnics although it wasn’t the end yet.
IMG_6524
Everyone promptly exited the compound when it’s shut off. Amazingly orderly and quietly too.

IMG_6531
How do people exit Disneyland T___T How do people leave this magical land of magic T___T

Yes, I like Elsa. Because she’s hella cool. I also like Rapunzel but… Elsa speaks Hokkien and it’s the best thing ever. Behold the best parody of that overplayed sickening song!!!!!!!!!!!!


I completely lost it after the part where she stepped on the ground and the snowflake appeared and laughed until I teared. Elsa ki chu show I died again. I love this so much.
Anyway, I think I See The Light from Tangled is an even better song that should have been overplayed on radio instead.

I wrote and sent a postcard to myself from Disneyland too!! :D

Received both a few days after my return ^_______^

I hope everyone goes to Disneyland/DisneySea and send me postcards just because I get a kick out of it and appreciate snail mail. I can dream on.

Ok. Then we went back and I should think Yuxuan got supper and I didn’t because she ate nothing and I ate enough for 3. There’s one more post left!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Day 6

Went to Tokyo station to change lines and bought bento for breakfast!
IMG_6037
Small variety where we were so I settled for a siew mai bento lol.
IMG_6038
The sides were all delicious but the rice was hard :(
IMG_6039
Bought café au lait from a vending machine because the can looked cute and said おいしい! But when I drank it, it was totally おいしくない :( Tasted more like diabetes-inducing coffee-flavoured milk.
Going to Tokyo Disney Resort is not difficult at all once you find yourself at Tokyo station. Just look for someone dressed up as a Disney character or is carrying a bag loaded with Disney plushies (mostly Duffy). It’s obvious. And following them will get you onto a train towards Maihama!

IMG_6042
!!!!!! Bought the 2-day passport online before the prices went up!! First day we went to Tokyo DisneySea!!!! :D :D :D
IMG_6046
IMG_6047
My first time at Disney (sad child). Her first time at Disney (sad child). Parents can all of you please bring your children to Disney…

If I lived in Japan how broke would I be?
IMG_6053
IMG_6054
IMG_6055
There’s this really cute but shy girl sitting next to us and at one point she was staring right into my camera BUT Yuxuan was blocking me and I mouthed to her about 30 times “move your hand away move your hand away” and when she finally did, she looked out of the window. Dammit :(

IMG_6057
YAY!!!!!!!! Didn’t know where to begin so just anyhowly walked.
IMG_6058
IMG_6060
IMG_6061
IMG_6064

The whole place is intricate décor.

I honestly have never thought of Earth as water planet.
IMG_6070
IMG_6073
IMG_6078
We didn’t take any transportation other than the Disney Resort Line so I didn’t know which Tomica to buy so I didn’t buy any :( That’s really unwise…

IMG_6081
IMG_6082
There was a crowd gathered round the Mediterranean Harbor for Fashionable Easter and we were at the backside so we just went as close to the waters as possible to check it out.
IMG_6083
!!!
IMG_6094
The floats were all so far away but this kite thing was crazy amazing!!!!
IMG_6095
IMG_6097
IMG_6098
IMG_6101
IMG_6100
The reason for my terrible composition is that I wasn’t watching it through the viewfinder because I wanted to see it with my own eyes lol…
IMG_6102
IMG_6104
IMG_6108
Fireworks in the day! Something rarely (or never) seen in Singapore.
IMG_6109
IMG_6110
We weren’t even intending to stay and watch but we wasted 30 minutes here because Disney-anything is so mesmerising???
IMG_6115
Chip & Dale
IMG_6113
Goofy and what’s that bird lol (ashamed Disney fan)…
IMG_6114
Donald and Daisy and Stitch. Stitch cock block sia…
IMG_6116
These flower balloons just inflated all of a sudden and it was so amusing!!!!
IMG_6118
DUFFY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and ShellieMay and Mickey and Minnie! :D :D :D
IMG_6119
You know what could improve Marina Bay? DisneyBay. It’d be bae.
Somewhere here, I spotted an e-ticket on the floor so I checked if it was mine. Mine was in my pocket. It was Yuxuan’s. OMG had I not seen it I don’t know how we’re gonna go to Disneyland the next day!!!!!

IMG_6120
IMG_6124
IMG_6126
IMG_6131
This was really cool! The 5 surfaces form a seamless image when viewed through the lens!
IMG_6132
So I just had to do this hahahahahaha :D

Why don’t they have adult costumes :( I want to be Elsa!! :(
IMG_6142
Got the FastPass tickets for Journey to the Center of the Earth and we had to return at night -___- Anyway, it was super fun!!!!! The ride was really fun :D It was worth the wait (or no wait)!

IMG_6144
IMG_6145
IMG_6146
Everyone wishes everywhere. Not just wishing wells.
IMG_6147
We’re in the queue for 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea because it wasn’t very long.
IMG_6149
We were 20,000 leagues in a really slow roller coaster tricking us into thinking we’re in a submarine hahahahaha! Don’t go if you are not a baby.

IMG_6154
The Japanese are crazy for Disney and also matching outfits. In a row here you can see 3 different outfits. I think one of them got lost because there shouldn’t be an odd number of people.
IMG_6155
Even babies are made to match their mums. So this was how they were raised…

IMG_6152
IMG_6153
Mermaid Lagoon seemed promising but actually was made for little babies so we left really quick.
IMG_6156
IMG_6157
The lighting was so magical though :)
IMG_6175
IMG_6159
IMG_6158
IMG_6160
After we took photos climbing up here, so did everyone else #magnesia
IMG_6163
IMG_6165
It actually feels like travelling around the world walking around TDS, except without drastic temperature fluctuations or change in culture lol… The only change there is is probably the unique popcorn flavours available exclusively at each area.
IMG_6166
IMG_6167
We were queueing up for Caravan Carousel, which was a 2-STOREY CAROUSEL OMG!!!!!!
IMG_6168
IMG_6170
It looks exactly the same and felt no different… I think we chose it so we could brag about being on the upper deck of a carousel #swag.
IMG_6171
Birthday princess!!!! I also conveniently DID NOT wish her happy birthday I’m so sorry but happy belated birthday you are super cute!
IMG_6172
IMG_6173
Lol :)
IMG_6176
IMG_6178
I thought Adele set fire to the rain… but she also set fire to waterfalls. Or waterstairs. What is this??? Anyway, she just never sang about it. It could be a pyromania she is hiding but we saw it in TDS.

IMG_6180
Time for 2pm lunch!!!!!
IMG_6181
I got myself a kids meal! :D They always have the yummy stuff no??
IMG_6182
Look at what’s on my ebi fry :( why can’t people realise it’s really not that universally accepted :(

IMG_6187
Went to the Magic Lamp Theatre. I think we got FastPass tickets for it? Or the queue was short.
IMG_6188
Not entirely a wise idea because we both couldn’t understand anything they were saying -___- but at least it was funny!! :)
IMG_6189
Was trying to get a picture of Daisy and I randomly shot this and it was so funny so I kept it hahahaha :D The kid’s such an ingrate though, being so whatever-Disney in Disney! Some of us only visit Disney for the first time when we’re 20!! Oh, there were many kids playing their Nintendo consoles like whatever-Disney. Omg this generation of kids…
IMG_6190

Finally got to buy the Duffy popcorn bucket.
IMG_6238
But the design is getting worse T_T I really wanted the one that’s Duffy’s head but I’m years late…
IMG_6239
It’s ok :(
IMG_6241
The flavour here was (I forgot) milk tea? or something. It had a strange chemical smell and sometimes tasted like puke. The Duffy bucket was probably the only reason it could be sold.
IMG_6246
Duffy bunting I want in my life T_T
IMG_6251
IMG_6252
The queue with the biggest suspense. Hiding Duffy in a nook so nobody can see him T_T
IMG_6253
IMG_6255
Was taking picture of this giant Duffy (I WANT T___T) and they caught me -__- then the guy hid behind it and the girl just burst out laughing LOL you guys are so cute.
IMG_6256
Also saw (didn’t manage to get a photo of) Duffy with a Pooh shirt and I was like since when do they sell that??? then I looked around and found a naked Pooh!!! HAHAHAHAHAHA I have never seen a naked Winnie it’s like looking at Mickey without his pants or Donald without his top LOL!!!!!!
IMG_6257
Hais… professional photographer got a blurry shot with my DSLR T____T
IMG_6362
I bought the photo they took!
IMG_6361
I want to go to TDR 100 times a year!!!!!! T______T
IMG_6296
IMG_6297

IMG_6258
Then it became really gloomy…
IMG_6259
IMG_6261
Saw birds flying in formation 3 or 4 times it was amazing!!! :D

StormRider. Super impressive effects. Must go!!! Everything at Disney puts USS to shame, I’m really sad that’s sort of the only theme park I have access to where I live.

IMG_6269
Tower of Terror. Queued for more than an hour.
IMG_6270
The drop was so sudden I nearly died. But the view was really good. Thank god it wasn’t those sort of endless drop that keeps me from breathing lol…

It was really really dark when we were queueing for Tower of Terror.
IMG_6321
Went to Toy Story Mania after we were done but didn’t know what to do so we left… Lol.
IMG_6322
IMG_6327
IMG_6330
This is how dark Tokyo gets at night.
IMG_6332
My pictures become terrible.
IMG_6333
Got a postcard to send to myself because Disney would put a commemorative stamp on it! :D
IMG_6334
IMG_6335
10pm and got to leave T_T
IMG_6359
What I bought there… Went crazy with the souvenir medallions because 100 yen for that quality I’m in!!!!! Was surprised to find the set of bento picks I got because I didn’t even know I bought them??? LOL what a (not so) waste of 800 yen!

It was midnight when we got back to Shibuya and had dinner!! So famished!!!!!!! Went to Ippudo Shiromaru Base because Ippudo rocks.
IMG_6355
It’s so-so…
IMG_6356
IMG_6358
That was sort of disappointing but I was starving!
Since dinner was supper we had no usual supper. I think…

Also had to ration whatever’s left of my money and not splurge at Disneyland the next day. Ok that’s all! Stay tuned! This ultra long series is coming to an end (finally)!!
