Boon tong kee hainanese chicken rice

Whenever i want to eat authentic chicken rice, i will think of boon tong kee, my favourite haunt for hainanese chicken rice.

Review of the book Life Recipes From My Mother (Part Two)

Finally finished reading the whole book, these are some extracts and things I learned from the book:

(1) Negative actions will bring negative results

(2) Depend on no one, rely on your own self, your own self is your strongest pillar

(3) Your decisions and choices shape your life

(4) Because of those who cannot perform well, then you got chance to prove yourself

(5) Only promise those things you can fulfill, do not anyhow promise anything to others

(6) Be cautious in your spending and learn to save for rainy days - My mom (the author's mom) was very clever and good in saving, even it means cutting down buying and reading newspapers, saving bit by bit can mean a lot.

(7) Divorce may not be a bad thing if you suffer in your marriage

Fish liberation activity (13 may 2018)

Today is the 4th time i went for life liberation activity. As today is mother's day so today's topic is about eating vegetarian on this day to build merits for our mothers.

As the 2.30pm activity is fully booked so i went for the 12pm one. I reached marina south pier around 11 plus. It is drizzling today and the weather is cooling. I like this activity and the ferry ride and I felt very peaceful when I am taking the ferry.

After the liberation activity, I took MRT to bugis to have my lunch. The stall I patronized only started business around 3pm so I waited for almost an hour. After lunch, I went to OG Albert Complex to shop and I bought a green colour blouse at S$16.00.

Finally song fa

I have always wanted to try song fa bkt but usually there are super long queues. As today is a weekday and it was already quite late at around 9pm, the queue wasn't too long. I went to queue up and it took me less than 10 mins to get my seat. There is a staff who takes your orders while you are queueing so you don't have to wait too long for your food when your seat is available. I can see that their crowd control was very good. Another thumbs up would be they will place a cloth over your bag on the chair just in case soup spills over it.

Song fa is cheaper and more tasty than founder bkt, they even refill the soup without you asking. The salted vegetables were just nice and not too salty, the bkt meat was tender and the soup tasty.

No wonder song fa is one of the most famous and crowded bkt chains in singapore.

3 years old

My nephew will be turning three years old this coming june, i bought these books to teach him english and mathematics, i derived great satisfaction from teaching him, whenever he is able to read and recognise the objects, i felt very happy. I love teaching my nephew.


Which one

Saw these elegant and exquisite tea pots and cups at yue hwa, which one do you like? At first glance and first impression i like #2.

Just admire from afar but did not buy them as firstly they are too expensive and secondly i have no use for them, the cups are so small, i need to refill many times to quench my thirst, lol.

Just for fun

Claire had posted about this Facebook App here.

Thought of doing a post too just for fun.

Used one of my old photos taken in 2009 to play around with it, the fake photo shows a sharper nose, bigger eyes with black eyeliner and sensual lip with lipstick, that is not the real me, the real me seldom put on make up, but it does make me happy for a while looking at the fake photo (vanity), hee hee.

First time try

I always read about nasi kerabu in blogs, today is the first time i try. What is nasi kerabu, does blue colour rice means nasi kerabu? So i went online and this is what i found (explanation by wikipedia).

Nasi kerabu is a Malay rice dish, a type of nasi ulam, in which blue-coloured rice is eaten with dried fish or fried chicken, crackers, pickles and other salads. The blue color of the rice comes from the petals of Clitoria ternatea (butterfly-pea) flowers (kembang telang) used in cooking it.

My nasi kerabu comes with crackers, anchovies, satay and egg omelette. The satay meat is very tender and the satay sauce flavourful. For drinks, i ordered ice lemon tea.

Nana's Green Tea May & June Seasonal Food & Sweets

May & June Seasonal Food

May & June Seasonal Sweets
I had been to Nana's Green Tea to try their food thrice, I was very happy and satisfied with my first try, but not the second and third visit as their service was rather slow. Saw their May & June Seasonal Food and Sweets in Facebook, wonder if I should go try, as I was wondering whether the Special Sauce for the Mentaiko Omelette Rice would be too spicy for me and also afraid that I might not like the Sauce.

For drinks, I am interested in the Yuzu Citrus with Uji Green Tea as I like Yuzu Citrus in my drink.

Been quite long since I last visited Nana, shall I go try?

Nonetheless, today is a happy day though i never go celebrate.
