I know Chinese New Year is already over but I had to share these 2 photos. They were taken by my sister in law & are the only 2 of The Girl in her chinese cheongsam. Don't ask me why I didn't take any (bad maman). The rest are photos of our food fest in Singapore. I'm putting them up as a reminder of all the food I can't get here. You see I like torturing myself.
Aside from my mother's cooking (which unfortunately she doesn't do as much now), the next closest comfort food for me is the fare at Soup Restaurant - steamed yoke bang with salted egg, lotus root soup, steamed chicken. We went overboard, as usual & probably ordered every dish on the menu.
This was our reunion dinner cocktails. Lychee martini with pork floss chips (unfortunately I only brought one packet back from Phuket) & on the right, representing the West, olives stuffed with red peppers.
Our reunion dinner - Steamboat. Although we make shabu shabu often here, see that plate on the left, that's what we're missing in France - fish balls, beef balls, fresh enoki mushroom & tau pok.......
Tossing yu shang @ Taste Paradise. If you're looking for good Chinese food & don't feel like going to yet another Tung Lok or Crystal Jade restaurants, then I'd recommend checking this place out. The food is awesome & the service even better.
I really have been away for a long time cos I didn't realise that there were hip beach bars in Sentosa. The music at the Cafe del Mar was a little too loud for my taste but they have a pool which was great for The Girl to splash around. Why would the pool be useful since we are by the beach ? Have you seen the view from Sentosa ? The one of the many cargo ships docked just offshore. No thank you very much, I ain't dipping my toes in there especially after I'd just enjoyed beautiful clear waters in Phuket.
This is what a vacation is all about
Champagne at lunch
My best friend's mum makes a mean popiah & I always try to get myself invited to her popiah parties. The deluxe version with chunky crab meat & whole prawns.
This was a new discovery this trip. We stumbled on this sichuan restaurant in Chinatown that serves what I consider rather authentic sichuan food that is hard to come by in Singapore. My favorite starter dish - ox tongue & tripe in spicy pepper sauce is really good (which I forgot to take a picture of). But I did take a picture of this interestingly presented boiled pork belly.
