White Beehoon in Toa Payoh

Our relatives from Kuching stopped over in Singapore after their holiday in Beijing.
On their last night of stay, we brought them for dinner. We decided on Hong Yun Seafood at Toa Payoh.

We had altogether a total of 16pax, which occupy 2 of their 5 tables within the air-conditioned room which I had booked 2 days in advanced!

We didn’t had a big feast. Our total bill for 2 tables came to about $188. Our menu consists of:
– White Beehoon
– Yam basket
– Har Cheong gai
– Potato leaves
– Fried baby squid
– claypot toufu
– 3 egg spinach
– Fuyong egg

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.

Mayer warehouse sales

Madame has been eyeing the kitchenaid mixer for the past few months. Yesterday when she saw the Meyer sale 23-25 October on Facebook, she was set to go for it.

The warehouse sale is at Toh Tuck Link. We got there about 2pm.

Our objective was to hunt down the $499 (advertised) kitchenAid KSM150.

When we got to the KitchenAid section, salesperson told us it was sold out! Not to our surprise, it was a display set that is why the big discount.  The new set is going at $599 with acessories and 1 year warranty. Madame eyes were glowing!

Take a break go fishing

As this week is PSLE marking week, girly has been asking madame to bring her to the park to feed the fish.
As madame was at home with her yesterday, they ventured out to Bishan Park in the afternoon for some kampong playtime!
I was at work when madame sent me this picture. So jealous!:)
Glad girly had fun taking a break from studying and doing assesment papers.

Sunday’s Hainanese lunch

On Sunday somewhat past lunch time, we were around Cityhall area and our tummies hankering for food, I suggested nearby Purvis Street as I was yearning for chicken rice and chap chye!

10 minutes later we found ourselves inside Chin Chin Restaurant. The place was filled with sunday crowds and tourists, tables uncleared and boisterous chattering but all these adds to the ambience!

Homemade walnut cake

After searching through google for ‘potluck dishes for big groups’ i came upon this site mrandmrsvegan page with pictures of palatable looking walnut cake, on the box there’s the person contact. The next moment I realised I have just ordered
a 2kg slab from the affable sounding Mrs Lim!

Mrs Lim is a affable lady, she does her baking at her residence at Yeley Building. According to her she does it out of love and she enjoys her craft. Many have approached her for business ventures, but she declined them all.

All orders are made by phone, and best to do it 1 to 2 days in advance as she is mostly overwhelmed with orders.
Besides Walnut cake, she too take orders for her Kueh Lapis, Butter cake.

I look forward to my next order of kueh lapis from this good humoured cake artisan.
