Pre-dinner drinks with Les&Ivy@Harry’s. Appreciations to YeeJit’s group for dinner@RiverpointJumbo***opposite Clarke Quay, a historical riverside quay by SIN River. The river has been the centre of trade since modern SIN was founded in 1819. During the colonial era, Boat Quay was the commercial centre where barge lighters would transport goods upstream to warehouses at Clarke Quay.
Tkx for post-dinner drinks@Les&Ivy. What an evening – feeling no pain after 45mins bus ride and all I could do was to brush my teeth and crashed.
Sun: farewell breakfast for YeeJit@Old Tiong Bahru Bak Kut Teh****肉骨茶 The name literally translates from hokkien(dialect) as meat bone tea, and at its simplest, consists of meaty pork ribs simmered in a complex broth of herbs and spices. Despite its name, there is in fact no tea in the dish itself; the name refers to a strong OolongChinese tea which is usually served alongside the soup in the belief that it dilutes or dissolves the copious amount of fat consumed in this pork-laden dish.
A new way to present tofu and delicious fresh fish-head served by the owner himself who speaks Cantonese that YeeJit still speaks and understands! Had to take a nap in the afternoon, must have had more than enough foods&wines this week to last me for the year! Safe journey back to Perth for YeeJit&his group. Cannot believe my eyes, passing thru’ Orhard Road – Christmas decorations are up!!!
Mon: Happy Bday to niece Patricia. Condolences to Yoshie and her family for the passing of her father-in-law (89), may he RIP. Another new area to figure out getting to&from the wake.
A Statue Red weather warning is in place as Ireland prepares for Storm Ophelia. Take care and be safe, Irish family, friends and everyone in Ireland! This poem came to mind with thoughts of the Ireland&Norway days…
‘Bitter is the wind tonight
It tosses the ocean’s white hair
Tonight I fear not the fierce warriors of Norway
Coursing on the Irish sea‘
