Saturday's Food Fiesta

No Comment - Post a comment

Needed to submit the registration fee to UOL, I met Bella at Serangoon before making a trip down to SIM. Journey was long and we have to make a transit at Toa Payoh. Wendy slept throughout the journey, on my shoulder of course and listening to iPod. I brought along the book "Men, Women and Relationship" and managed to complete a good 2 chapters during the journey.

Reached SIM, submitted the documents and straight we head off to have our brunch at a restaurant nearby. Its the long-awaited "Zhi Bao Ji" (Chicken Wrapped in Paper) that Bella has been craving for. Ordered 18 "Zhi Bao Ji" and a plate of fried rice for 2. Total damaged was about $25.

Left: Wendy with her chicken!
Right: The "Zhi Bao Ji". Ya its not those whole chicken you imagined. Its just a small portion of the meat wrapped in small paper. Very oily too.

Right: All cleared. Apparently, everyone was putting the unwrapped paper into the big mental bowl at the top of the picture but we only realised till the end. Too bad.

Us: The satisfying looks

After the brunch, we walked under the hot sun to cross the road to take Bus 61 to Queensway. I needed to get back the deposits placed for Team FATA's Kappa jerseys because their next shipment is October instead. They are too eager to secure order as they called me saying the stocks were unavailable after I placed my order and deposits. Nevertheless, we will shall till October and decide if we want the jersey again. I also got a shinguard as I lost one of it, suspected culprit, a bird that made it dropped out of my kitchen window.

Wendy needed a new bed as her current one is failing; hurting her back. Hence; we walked over to Ikea to look see look see. We managed to hold back our mouth to the food in iKea this time round as I ate Katong Laksa at Queensway where Bella finished the whole bubble tea.

The beds that caught her eyes.

We finally called it a day (did we?) when we board bus 100, planning to head home for a rest cum sleep before waking up at 2.45am to catch the Euro 2008 match between Netherlands and Russia. Upon boarding the bus we were told that we should have taken bus 147 as bus 100 will takes quite a long time to reach Serangoon. However, we stayed on. When the bus finally reached Harbourfront MRT, I suggested to take NEL instead which could effectively cut more than 50% of the travelling time.

Hence, we alighted. But instead of walking towards the MRT station, we walked towards the food market as we have a craving for the nice Fried Hokkien Mee and Oyster Egg.

All time favorite local delights.

The early dinner was completed with a nice sugar cane juice downing our throat. What is perfect setup under the hot weather. Soon, we found ourselves bathed clean and resting at my home.

Bella could not tahan anymore and off she goes to bed while I watched the soccer match.
