My Everyday Life : Week 3

This week has been great because Friday was a holiday in Singapore! Everyone should work 4 days and rest 3 days, isn’t that more fair? I love long weekends!

This week, we revisited another restaurant that we haven’t been to in a while, went to a new cafe that was great, baked twice (and both turned out well!), brought my grandma out for dinner at her favourite place, my good friend had an ‘OMG’ burger, we received something funny in the mail and my mother was in her 2nd week of holiday in Spain & Portugal … whew, and that concludes our week!

Please enjoy these snaps and let me know what you did this week!

I saw this in the newspapers on Sunday – Laduree’s maracons did not even come close to the top few. But it is one of the most costly.

My dinner on Tuesday – before gym. Sashimi, edamame beans and avocado. Please don’t ask me what we had after gym.

KW’s dinner one night – curry rice. This looks really gross but it tastes like heaven.

Carbonara pasta at Jewel Cafe – my sister’s dish

The OMG burger from Jewel Cafe – our good friend’s dish – it has bacon, fried egg and luncheon meat. I can die for this.

KW’s dinner one night – mee goreng (It is made with thin yellow noodles fried in cooking oil with garlic, onion or shallots, fried prawn, chicken, or beef, sliced meatballs, chili, Chinese cabbage, cabbages, tomatoes and egg)

My dad was feeling nostalgic and he looked through old photos of my sister and I.

We went to Founders Bak Kut Teh at Rangoon Road – not as tasty as we thought.
Bak Kut Teh consists of meaty pork ribs simmered in a complex broth of herbs and spices.

  1. The food pictures bring many taste-memories back to me. I lived in Singapore for several years in the 2000’s and probably wasn’t adventurous enough, although I didn’t realize until your pictures how I did crave the taste of laksa.

    A surprisingly satisfying fast food place, at least back around 2005, was the MOS Burgers, which offered among other things burger patties (including vegetarian or vegan burger substitutes) with an option of steamed rice cakes in place of the bun, which is one of those things i’d never have imagined beforehand but which feel incredibly obvious afterwards.

    1. HI Joseph, Yes, laksa is great. Come back to visit sometime. SG has changed beyond your wildest dreams. Everything is so expensive now!! 🙂
      Yes at MOS burgers everyone was suprised to find the patties with rice instead of bread. But it is a cool idea. Till now people love to eat that. I have not eaten that in a while though and this reminds me to visit it soon.
