Miso in my pocket

Stumbled upon this packet of miso soup when i popped by Plaza Singapura Daiso.
As it was during lunch hour, tummy is rumbling. Its a bad idea to shop for food when you are hungry!



I picked the packet up and tried to make sense of its contents. Visually i see the miso soup image, looked at the illustrated cooking instructions scanned through the ingredients.

Next i found myself joining the lunch time crowd payment queue of about 30 folks ahead of me.

Got to office, couldn’t wait to checkout the contents!


Miso paste – to add hot water
Wakame seaweed included!



Overall, its a gratifying quick fix for miso craving!  Would be great to throw in some tofu! Yums! I know my miniature lady will love it too! Banzai!

You can find Daiso outlets here:



Ah Boy first Church service

We have been wanting to bring baby Dru for service for the longest time! Today we managed to make it happen.

We got to MBS about 1230, boy fell asleep in the harness on wife even as Pastor Prince voice was blaring from the loud speakers in the almost empty hall for parents with babies. There were about 4 families when we stepped in.. By the end of service it was about 15.

He woke up after half an hour power nap and was full of energy.

Boy boy, starting solid food

Our little human Dru, is closing in to his 6 months. Mummy has started him with an intake of cereal together with one of his bottle feeding time.

Today I went out to buy a small tin of Nestle cerelac ( Brown rice and milk) as we had left our packet of organic cereal ( compliments from my SIL) at Dru’s grandma place.



Mummy prepares about 1 tablespoon of cereal for a start, it has been a week since little boy had his first taste of solid, he seems to like it.

Right now he is drinking about 150ml-160ml.

Nestle Cerelac, we found that its pretty sweet for baby. As we are comparing to the organic brand. I will post the brand later when I get my hands on it.

Wife says the Nestle taste like redbean.



I believe this will be first and last taste for Dru on this brand of cereal. He seemed to like it though!


Mother’s Day lunch – Thai Tantric

Happy Mother’s day to all mummies! My lovely sister booked this restaurant for our family to celebrate this special day for the 4 mommies.

Located at orchard towers, yes orchard towers! Tucked at one corner, this restaurant cooked up some pretty wicked authentic thai dishes!! I must say the space is pretty cramp, not very friendly for strollers and big gatherings.



Thick and clear Tom yum soup


Steam seabass. This dish was a bit on the salty side.



Overall food was quite mouth watering, certain dishes we find to sweet or salty.

Mouthwatering Bo Bo Cha Cha

In a nondescript food Centre -North Bridge Road Market and Food Centre. I happened to stumble upon this stall that sells hot dessert as well as simple dimsum like Chee Cheong fun, siew mai, soon kueh.

I noticed people queing and ordering bowls of creamy ochre looking soup overflowing with sweet potatoes from this shop. I soon found out it was Bo Bo Cha Cha.

I ordered a bowl for myself. It was indeed mouthwatering! Generous supply of sweet potatoes, yams, jelly, yes those chewy soft jellos!!  The ‘lemakness’ I find was just right, a bit on the sweet side though. Overall, awesome dessert for $1.80!!

After dinner we stroll down to nearby Frozen by a thousand blessings

We ordered about $30 of yogurt to share and try! Lovely!

The cafe was empty then at about 9pm after our group step in, the room was filled with noise from my nieces spewing “OMG” and taking non-stop selfies! They were all so excited to see the varieties of toppings and the self-service yoghurt dispensers! Soon crowds began to flow in!

Overall we had a great night out with food and dessert! Hope our aunty and uncle had enjoyed their stay in Singapore and I believe my uncle had gone back many pounds extra, according to him as he said “I have eaten non-stop ever since I touched down in Shanghai till tonite!”

Hometeam NS Bukit Batok

Madame was having appointment around bukit Batok, so we checkout Home Team NS at Bukit Batok for lunch.

Its been a while since we last visited the clubhouse. Probably 3-4 years ago when girly first hit the pool and madame was coaching her swimming.

The clubhouse had gone through a facelift recently. We ended up eating at Saizeriya -Italian casual dining. The food was not fantastic, but provide us shelter from outside 178 PSI and generally food court price.
