26 Jun 2017 – SIN, A Food Paradise For Me
Sun: wishing all Muslims Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri, thus ending a month of fasting. According to the Hijrah calendar, Hari Raya falls on the first day of the 10th month. It is a time of forgiveness and a time for strengthening of bonds among relatives and friends, not just for the Muslims but for everyone.
Really do like Nasi Padang/Malay food, but today am just too tired without much appetite, that too shall pass 🙂 Pix are downloaded from one of my favourite food places, Glory on EastCoastRd. Missing Sue’s pineapple tarts (my pix). This is what I like in&about SIN, the integration of the different cultures especially where foods are concerned 🙂 🙂 🙂
Mon: public holiday and all is quiet at 0500hrs. Out dark&early for a walk to check out TEL/MRT constructions (completion date 2024!) before getting grocery at the 24/7Giant and coffee@my regular MP Coffee&Drinks, no need to even tell them as they get my ice-coffeeS$1.10 started when they see me 🙂 Being Mon on top of a public holiday, many of my regulars are closed.
Tried another Chai tow kway/Carrot cake 菜头粿 and for S$3 it was OK. Garnished with some Glass PrawnsS$5+calamansi, cilantro, spring-onions made it into a delicious fancy dish for less than S$10 on the new place-setting. Welcome back to affordable fresh local foods&herbs. The prawns were excellent and crunchy after cooking for a few mins and cooling them immediately on ice.
Tkx to Inessa for dropping by and for getting me out for durians – if not for durians, would have been quite happy to stay indoors in the comforts of the AC with the books and piano.
Feels like in a sauna every time I step outside, even a few steps to the elevator!
As it turned out, had a good afternoon eating our way down EastCoastRd. YongHuat MeeSua now Alibabar located at the corner of EastCoast&JooChiatRd is still as tasty&yummy as ever. KimChooKuehChang is always a good place to visit for Peranakan handicrafts&snacks. Good luck to Inessa for her next adventure and experience with another new overseas job.
