花鼠仔’s behaviour was rather weird today.

Just on Tue that day, he was referred to KK by the polyclinic doc which he frequented. When 大妹 couldn’t find T after her 奶奶 called during lunch to inform her of the situation, she cried when she called me. I was rather cool then, but becos my voice was suddenly slightly choked by my own saliva, 雷门 thought I was trying to control my wrongly-mistaken shaken voice and told me to take care when I informed him of my urgent leave to hospital. Well, everyone knows how much I dote 花鼠仔. So much so that new comers thought I was talking of my own son 😛

According to the doc, the virus was passed down to him by someone in the hse. I supposed it was me cos I was sick for the past 2 weeks : ( … though his cousin was the other sick one. When 大妹’s 奶奶 and 阿爷 came out from the cab with the sickly 花鼠仔, she couldn’t control herself and break down in tears. So was her 奶奶. All I could do then was to pat on both.

After inhaling the neutraliser to open up his airway, he started jumping on my lap and smile again. Wat a sweet boy ^______^

He must had been spoilt for the past few days since the trip to KK, and so the weird behaviour.

He was exceptionally grouty, and especially hate anyone who tried to wipe near his nose.

Oh yes! He was wearing the doraemon suit that was bought last sun. Somehow he seems to be very interested in his 小姨 fav cartoon character, Doraemon, which I am the only happy one cos there are chances that he will ‘inherit’ all those doraemon stuffs that are fighting for space with my hello kitty’s stuffs … hehehe =P

The only time when he was quiet was when he was feeling too sleepy to do anything … which was also his feeding time =P

Hope this behaviour will diminished once he recovered (:^__^:) … if not, alamak!


Shokudo Japanese Food Bazaar

This lunch-gathering was actually discussed over numerous msn. Although timing and date had been fixed 1 or 2 days earlier. It will get everyone confused (esp. me) after numerous of asking for the already agreed meet up time. And so as usual, I was earlier than punctual for such meet up. The restaurant will only opened at 11.30am, and we agreed to meet at 11am which I thought it was the opening hour and so me reached 10.45am.

So … next time dun ask and ask … once confirmed, that’s it! And to avoid such confusing, best is to confirmed over email or sms … well, no choice, I need BLACK AND WHITE!!!

Ok, back to Shokudo Japanese Food Bazaar. Quite a nice place to gather. We were EARLY and so could easily find good seats.

We were quite spoilt for choice, but wat make it worse was, I dun really understand some japanese namings though some of them came with English translation too 😛

After making a few rounds and still yet to decide which to order, upon seeing someone carrying her yummy-look-alike order, I ordered one for myself too.

Chicken Katsu Curry (S$7.80)

The chicken katsu was crispy, but the curry turned cold fast. Or was the curry luke warm initially? Anyway, it wasn’t a right choice if one wanted to try more dishes. I din finish up the rice though.

Yakitori (S$2.50) / Pork Asparagus (S$2.50)

Just normal taste for yakitori. Pork asparagus would taste better if the asparagus wasn’t that unchewable.

Gyu Nanban Maki (S$5.80)

They literally roll it as though they were making sushi, before they grilled it and cut it up. Every mouthful was juicy, and it goes well with wasabi too 😛 The sauce was too much though, which made it saltish.

I tried on some of my friend’s orders too.

The crepe with macha ice-cream was good. Love it! : ) And it was the 1st dish that I took, even before I tucked into my curry rice. Too early for a dessert huh 😛

The rosti would be more perfect if the sour cream is sour enough.

I tried on their omelette too. Not my order and I forgotten to ask them wat was inside the omelette. Nevertheless the taste was marvellous. No wonder this was the only stall (at that hour) with a queue.

And lastly, the most simple dish … bean sprouts.

There were 2 more kamameshi orders which I didn’t try, cos it was for 2 bigger kids.

Actually I would like to try on their hot plate ones, but again the ‘pi-pi-pia-pia’ … : ( **sigh**

named as japanese can drink (S$3.50)

We dun seems to see any price stated at their drink stall. This soda drink came out to be S$3.50. Hmm … just cream soda taste but wat’s so special about it that it was so pricely for a can of drink? Mistake …

Short of the 2 bigger kids one which I din take a proper pix of. CT however surprised us with her pregnancy.

Overall spending for mine was about S$26, which I find it reasonable, though someone kept saying hers was only $18+, which solely spent on her and her 2 kids. Well, if compared to Marche, this was really nothing, and the amt was quite normal lor. I was even expecting more than this.

Will definately be back for more ^____* (anyone interested?)

Imperial Treasure @ NAC

A nice ‘proper’ dinner had always been the highlight of any meet ups after work.

Just the nite before, everyone had agreed on Breeks @ NAC. But as we were approaching Breeks, JT suddenly craved for dim sum … yah at nite 😛

Though their dim sum offered only till 5pm, we still ended up at Imperial Treasure for their shanghai dim sum and other delicacies.

Spinach w assorted eggs (salted eggs, chicken eggs and century eggs) (S$14)
These were all my fav. eggs, with the softness of the spinach, it was like ‘melting’ in the mouth 😛

La Mian with Hot & Sour Soup (S$7.80)
Different naming as compare with the one at marina sq. I still prefer the spiciness at marina sq.

R.F. Cake S. Pork & Cabbage (S$9)
It was simply fried nian gao (aka chinese new year cake)

Steam Minced Pork Dumpling (S$3.60)
just wasn’t as good as the one at marina sq

P/F Pork Dumpling (S$4.60)
These were better than the steam dumplings above, that went very well with a bit of vinegar and ginger slices.

Golden Pastry (S$5.50)
If not becos of those heavy dishes before this, I think I can enjoy it more.
I din know it was such a big serving. It was very crispy and savory.

Black Glutinous Cream (S$5)
Simply black glutinous rice with vanilla ice cream to replace the usual coconut milk for such dessert.
But I still prefer coconut milk that brought out the savory aroma of the dessert.

Mango Sago Cream (S$5) / Chinese Herb Pudding (S$4.50)
One sweet and one bitter dessert. As I was still having my cough, I opted for the cooling guilin gao =P

Souffle Egg w ball (S$6)
These were good, but guilty to the stomach =P Taste like ’emptied’ goreng pisang to me though.


The only thing I bought this nite was this DIY book from Kino. My hse was kinda full of DIY books of different kind, but I had yet to start on any. Will this be contributed to my books museum again? =P

Imperial Treasure @ NAC

Lunchie Treat (fm us) @ Kotobuki

Someone was nice enough to help us purchase and brought back our blue label burberry’s BIG bag, and so BS suggested giving her a thank you treat.

Given a short 1 hr lunch only, we had to choose a nearer restaurant around and finally decided to try out this jap restaurant though it had been badly commented by some yim chim colls 😛 Sometimes it was still better to try it for ourselves to confirm 😀

BS’s – Eel rice (S$12)
She like it. I may try this in my next visit.

LH’s – Bento set (S$18.90)
She enjoyed very much … but the set seems too much for a lunch 😛

Mine – Soba (S$18)
Kinda disappointed 😦 Think I’m hooked on to the one at waraku’s, with a nicer mixed dip too.

Mixed Tempura (S$18)
Another loser dish 😦

Grilled sticks (golden mushroom wrapped with pork belly/chicken meat ball – S$3 each)
Both were nice, but still lose to Shin Kushiya’s 😛

Quite an enjoyable lunch … but as usual, too short of time 😦

Lunchie Treat (fm us) @ Kotobuki

Lunchie Treat @ Harry’s Bar

Someone won the naming contest.

I should be one of them too but just becos different contest different organiser different style, my supposedly-winner-for-the-naming-contest gone by the wind 😦

Just find it unfair for me and so me kept complaining … and so … earned this treat from one of the winners, L =P (power me!…hehehe…)

Shared – Herb Mash Potato (S$4)
not really shared … cos I took almost whole of one of the 2 plates. I’m a potato fanatic remember? ^_______*

SC n YT – Teriyaki Chicken Burger (S$14)
I din get to taste for this … but guess it’s just a common chicken burger with teriyaki sauce =P

Mine – Texas Chilli Burger (S$15)
Too dry for my taste. I dun really like it. I had a hard time finishing it up.

BS n L – Tandoori Chicken Wrap ($12)
Tried this on my 1st trip there. If not for my cough, I would have ordered their wraps.
The pita bread was ovened not too hard or too soft. Tandoori chicken was very tender and juicy.

Basically the foods there were marvellous. But just beware! If you thought a juice drink might just cost you at most S$5+/-, then you were wrong! Few of us ordered just a lime juice drink during our 1st trip there and was shocked to know they cost us S$9 each!!! So clever us only asked for free skyjuice (plain water) this round, and they were generous to give you the same glass size too : )

Oh ya! They charged nothing else other than gst charges. Not bad huh? ^___*

This lunch was actually planned with caution. Cos we were trying to get rid of a leech =P

We were happy with just the few old lunch kakis of us … a supposedly mthly good (not hawker food) lunch gathering : )

1st Meet up @ Yan Palace

Finally it was the day for both sides of parents for a meet up session before their ROM day.

Yan Palace was the choice. That time for 大妹’s one was at Fortunate Restaurant. Looks like dim sum is a preferred meal of such meet up. Funnie thing was … most of the time everyone were just eating away … telling everyone to eat, eat, eat … then to say anything related to their ROM. Hahaha … anyway this was only a casual meet up and not those official marriage discussion session.

Luckily we had 花鼠仔 to break any awkward silent that might occur =P


The dim sum were delicious but I din eat much cos I still had not fully recovered from my cough … appetite was bad : (

The ‘youngsters’ went separate ways from the elderlys after the dim sum session. And since we were so near to Chinatown Pt, I brought them to 小妹’s fav cartoon character, Doraemon’s retail shop, where we spent quite some times as 大妹 and T were trying to get a family of 3 similar tees to wear on 花鼠仔’s 1 yr old birthday celebration in Nov.

We ended up at China Sq Central for their Sunday Flea Market. It was my 1st trip for the flea market after their shift from Clarke Quay.

All these while 花鼠仔 had been a very quiet boy … which was rather unusual =P Just when we thought we could had a ‘peaceful’ dinner at Bugis V8, he started to make noise. He must had been in the pram for too long and feel real BORED … heehee …

1st Meet up @ Yan Palace

Happy Father’s Day

It was Father’s Day yst … and … we actually miscalculated it to fall on the 22 Jun instead as we missed out the 1 Jun which fall on a Sun 😛

So ga-lang-ga-bo-ly, we gathered our ang bao and used 花鼠仔 as our ‘representative’ by passing straight to him (carried by me), though he held it tightly not wanted to let go … hahaha …

It was also Wei’s 1st meet up with 花鼠仔, after seeing many of his pix and video clips posted by me onto online albums.

Wei just graduated and had wanted to work in Spore. And so he happened to be here for few days due to few interview appts.

Aiya! Just realised that we din took any pix on 爹地 and T.

Let me wish all the Dads (esp. 爹地, Uncle F, 舅舅s, 叔叔, T, …)



Happy Father’s Day
