Dinner at Thai Express, Bedok Mall

Tonight’s dinner was at Thai Express in Bedok Mall.

Time flies when you are having a good time shopping and then you realised its already 7:30pm! It’s strange you don’t even feel tired or hungry!

Since today is a rainy day, we decided to eat Thai Food! Tom Yum Soup is always comfort food for the rainy weather!

We ordered Tom Yum Seafood Soup, Thai Seafood Otah, the Gai Phat Med Ma-Moung-Him-Ma-Phan (Sauteed Chicken with Cashew Nut) and the Sauteed Kai Lan with Mushroom, and 2 plates of White Rice.

Service wasn’t really good at this outlet. We sat beside a French couple with a toddler, and the mindless mother put her spoon which was ‘infected by chilli from her phad thai’ into the child’s food to feed him and made him spit out the food and cried and created a huge scene! Sigh…

Tonkatsu Toji Waken from Shin-Do for lunch! Slurp!

My first meal of the day is Tonkatsu Toji Waken from Shin-Do at Century Square this afternoon.

I love Japanese food, and don’t mind eating it everyday!

Shin-Do used to be called ‘Shin-Sapporo Ramen’, and after renaming itself, they sell a variety of rice bowls, and set meals other than ramen or udon.

I think this is quite value for money. At SGD15,90, this is rather filling! After eating this, I didn’t even eat a full dinner. I just snacked on 2 apples, and a free bread roll from Gardenia  when I bought a loaf of bread at NTUC just now.

What’s your first meal in 2017? Hope that it’s a great start to the new year! Cheers!

“Kra Pao” Basil Crispy Chicken Rice at Saap Saap Thai, Our Tampines Hub, Singapore

I crave for Thai food!! and I’m glad I will be getting my dose of AUTHENTIC THAI FOOD in Chiang Mai come 4 January 2017!

I’ll be visiting Chiang Mai for the first time as the all-time favourite destination in Thailand is Bangkok (shop, eat, massage, repeat).

I love Tom Yum Goong, Pad Thai, Pad Krapow Moo Saap (Fried Basil and Pork), Green Chicken Curry, and their Fried Fish! Just thinking of all these Thai food makes my mouth water! Fast Forward to 4 January 2017 please!!!

Christmas Dinner

Singapore Fish N Chips at Fish N Co, Changi Airport Terminal 2

This year’s Christmas dinner is held at Fish N Co in Changi Airport Terminal 2 since April is working.

Why is this called “Singapore Fish N Chips”? It’s just because it comes with ‘Chilli Crab’ sauce… But to be honest, Fish N Co needs to work harder on the flavour of the chilli crab sauce as it tastes nothing like it!

I’ve not been to Fish N Co for a while and these days, they have given fancy names to their Fish & Chips such as “Swiss Fish & Chips” – Fish & Chips with Mozza-Oregano Stuffing, topped with garlicky lemon butter sauce, “Bombay Fish & Chips” – Indian herbs-and-spice twist with curry mayo dip, “New York Fish & Chips” – Signature Fish & Chips stuffed with parmesan cheese and topped with lemon butter sauce.

Happy Boxing Day!

Fried Chicken Wings, Swedish Meatballs and Siew Mai at IKEA Restaurant Tampines

Needed to do some groceries shopping at GIANT, so took the free shuttle bus from Tampines MRT Station to get there and stopped at IKEA for dinner before it gets crowded!

The standards of the fried chicken wings and swedish meatballs have gone down the drain for quite some time, but it’s the ‘comfort food’ we will usually order when we go to IKEA restaurant. The Jumbo Siew Mai, however, caught us by surprise.

It’s SGD1.60 for 2 pieces, so we thought its alright to just buy and try. We were glad we did it as its actually quite yummy! One more comfort food to add to our list next time we visit IKEA Tampines!

Black Chicken Bento from QQ Rice (SGD5.90), Our Tampines Hub, Singapore

QQ Rice is a food stall selling healthier rice (oats rice in this case) and they have quite a large variety of rice products!

There’s brown rice which is quite common, eaten mainly by those who want to lose weight. Then there were the uncommon ones like red rice that helps to create red blood cells, and purple rice that helps promote longevity.

Sometimes I wonder why healthier food is more expensive… It’s like you get penalised for trying to be healthy. Which is why junk food sounds more appealing 😛

Pikachu’s Ice Cream Bun, Level Up with Rare Candy! (SGD18), Pokemon Cafe, Bugis Junction, Singapore

The Pokemon Cafe in Bugis Junction reopened recently with the Sun and Moon concept introducing characters like Rowlet (the Owl), Litten (the cat) and Popplio (Sealion).

The food items were so expensive and tasted so-so.

Underneath the cute face of Pikachu is just a scoop of raspberry ripple ice-cream, and the Japanese wafer dipped in chocolate (Pikachu’s ears) were a bit soft, like it’s been out in the open for too long, losing its crispiness and freshness.

We received a free Pokemon cafe placemat, as well as a coaster when we ordered food and drinks from the cafe.

I guess the Pokemon Cafe is losing steam as there wasn’t any queues at all when we went this evening after buying some books from Kinokuniya.

Mixed Fish Soup for dinner is best after an hour of Zumba!

I was thrilled to find a stall selling mixed fish soup in the coffeeshop near my house. It’s hard to find good mixed fish soup nowadays. It’s either the sliced fish is not fresh, or the soup is so bland and diluted.

The one I had today at the Food Fare Foodcourt at Tampines Street 82 was not too bad. The best is I felt healthy eating this for dinner after 1hr of zumba!

Usually they put condensed milk into the soup to make it sweet and milky. However, I’m a fan of clear soup based fish soup. Luckily the stall owner asked me if I wanted bittergourd in my fish soup and I told her “NO”. Life is bitter enough, I don’t want to add anymore bitterness to it by killing my tastebuds!
