Maxim’s Mooncakes in Spore

I was here at taka mid-autumn festival fair again.

Finally I decided to buy this for 妈咪.

6pcs sugar free lotus seed paste with egg yolk (S$16.50)

If I remembered correctly, this was their 1st year to participate in the yearly fair.

Other than the mooncakes, they brought in their famous products like the almond biscuits too … which was my all time favourite buy in hong kong 😉

Eighteen Chefs @ TBP + Kbox @ Lucky Chinatown

The busiest housewife (ok she is earning from giving tuitions … which earned even more than the last job she had) finally decided to call for this gathering.

And so ‘naturely’ I became the coordinator.

Unfortunately LC and WW couldn’t attend, cos we were all surprised by what we saw.

Mdm Busy was pregnant!!!

It had been quite a long time since we last met her. Though I had been communicating with her through msn, there seems no hint of her pregnancy … somemore it has been 7 months.

Her last pregnancy ended up in complications but luckily all went well after full medications. It definately took her great courage to try for a 2nd one.

After flipping through the menu outside the restaurant, we decided on this.

The ex-premise of Sakae Sushi had turned into a small and simple restaurant, Eighteen Chefs.

It was a self-serviced restaurant, and of course with no service charge included.

All needed to do was to write and tick through their order chit, bring it over to the cashier with payment, collect the water and cutlery, and lastly, wait for the order to be served.

One thing which I couldn’t understand was, there were so many waiters around, but only one busily serving drink orders around … to all tables, while the rest stand by the food serving counter and do nothing. This busy one was later seen serving food orders too. Hmm …

add on S$3.80 for a drink and soup

dory with lemon (S$12.90)

teriyaki chicken chop (S$11.80)

salmon fillet (S$15.80)

The price was pretty reasonable. Food was surprisingly flavoury despite the price. Presentation was good too.

I would recommend this place for cheap yet reasonably good food. Not a bad place for gathering with friends. But as the premise was rather opened, one might be ‘viewed’ by many curious passersby.

Well, after sending Mdm Busy off at the mrt, the remaining 4 headed off to kbox at lucky chinatown.

I wondered how long I had not been here, cos it seems that the place had underwent a big revamp.

lcd tv screen … not 1 but 2

touch pad song selections which was very inconvenient cos we had to be physically there to select the songs and not remotely at our seat

a mounted on controller, for mic and song volume plus other functions, on the wall beside the sofa

Despite those inconveniences, we had an enjoyable night yelling away 😀

Hari Raya Nite Market @ Geylang Seria

Frankly speaking it was my 1st time to the hari raya night market. And I was glad that BS invited me to join her and her family for their yearly trip down to geylang seria during such festive season. — but in the end only her sis went.

The experience was totally different from that of our cny night market. Not to say the difference in food, which in fact there were similarity with the festive cookies.

There were many food stalls like that of a pasar malam selling to those who wanted to grab something during their breaking of fast. Mostly seen were chicken wings, nasi lemak, nasi goreng, lekors, kuehs, keropok, and festive cookies.

There were even few stalls that sell floor mats, spreading at both sides of the passage way.

We were supposed to snack as we walked along the night market, but having to wait for the rain to stop, we had our dinner at the post centre instead.

keropok (3-for-S$10) are always so yummy! … and of cos we bought some from here ^^

lekors (8-for-S$1) were very crunchy and nice

bought only 1 pc of bamboo chicken wing (S$1.50) to try … but regretted. i should have bought more 😦

I remembered we passed by this coffeeshop during the FRC 1st foodie trip to joochiat, but we didn’t went for it cos we were rather full and tired by the end of our trip.

Since the queue wasn’t too long, BS encouraged me to queue for it … which eventually took me good 20mins to finally got my hands on my order @@

putu piring (3-for-S$1) tasted almost same as the one i ate in melaka, juicy and not too floury

BS said they used to sell at a coffeeshop in clementi, which I couldn’t recall so. 妈咪 was unsure either after I told her too.

Does anyone remember so?

Mooncakes Vs Anna Sui Bag Hook

We had dinner at cedele before heading off to the taka mid-autumn festival fair below.

taken over the ex-delifrance premise

There was nothing much for me to buy this year after the much ‘wastage’ from office. Moreover 大小妹 will buy them as festive gifts for their 娘家. I couldn’t eat much, and neither could the 2 elderlys at home, so those are good enough.

Though I saved on the festive cakes, I spent some money on this mag which I grabbed from kino ^_*

S$17.37 after 10% less

a nice anna sui bag hook … love it! 🙂
