B. On recess week (lucky Singapore uni students
Under interesting stuff I ate, there was the Banana Chicken from Swensen's
The chicken was actually really tender. And I like bananas, so.... I just wish the sauce had more to a kick of it. It was kind of bland.
Oh, but I know a place with awesome sauce. It's Old School Delights!! I went there with Nic and Bekah for dinner when I was back in Singapore (I spent about 4 days in Malaysia for a conference + factory visit)
The place is really adorable!
Although it seems like we were born just a little too early. Anyway, the tables had so much stuff from our childhoods, from toys:
To the comics we used to read:
And ordering was done on a portable whiteboard!!
While I have no photos, the Black Pepper Chicken and Chops was fantastic! The sauce was a little sweet, and even though my dish was the Fish and Chips (fish was good, the tartar sauce tasted like mayo), I asked for the Black Pepper sauce and dipped everything in it.
Everything but dessert, that is.
Dessert was a warm chocolate banana fudge cake and it was awesome!
|Happy bunch ^^|
Also, my Japanese classmates have never seen me this hyper before. It's the company I tell you - I'm actually quieter in Japan, although it doesn't seem like it :p
|Incidentally, the lanterns at China town this year include a huge, multicolour Merlion. I assume because SG50|
|Lau Pa Sat at night.|
|My pretty cousin and I - The haze is really bad in Singapore now.|
One day of contacts was enough. I switched to glasses for the night, and it was much more comfortable.
Oh, and another offering from Swensen's - Milo Dinosaur dirt pot. I wanted to have this, but the first time we went to Swensens, the staff forgot to put it on the order...
Good thing there's a Swensen's near Suntec City, so we managed to go there for lunch!!
And on my last night, we had steamboat!!
I had my family and friends over, though all the photos with my family are on my camera. And I don't have permission to share those photos. Friends though, don't mind.
|Love you girls! Thanks for coming!!!|
|Look at the LINE characters!|
If it weren't for the fact that I had to go back the next morning, I wouldn't have been able to eat them. Too cute! But I had to.
|And they were delicious!|
The next day/yesterday, I flew back to Singapore. Despite the plane leaving Changi at 8am, I didn't in arrive in Fukuoka until 9:20 pm. That's over thirteen hours, which is seven more than what I'm used to. I blame the two transfers (one at Hong Kong and one at Taipei).
On the bright side, I bought Terry Pratchett's Snuff at HKIA's Page One.
|And I like this outdoor camera thing the plane has.|
I was pretty sure I wanted to blog about something else today, but then I forgot what it was =.= Or did I originally plan to blog about this and then forget but somehow remembered? I guess I'm more tired than expected - wish me luck for my papers (I've got one that's in the "DANGER" zone right now). Oh, and a warning on a company that I recently freelanced for - that's another post coming up.
I believe that's all. I've really got to start doing things regularly, instead of dumping them into one big post :p
