Just couldn’t stop sharing with you how much fun & food we had over the 5-day trip in Club Med. Here we had some main food to showcase. Good and not too good, just wanted you to have some brief ideas so that you could choose the best among the wide choices and seemingly unlimited spreads. :)
1) Scallop & Asparagus in XO Sauce. These sautéed scallops were nicely done to its tender and juicy state. With XO sauce added to the scallops, taste was robust and delicious.read more
“The dainty appetizers and light bites @ Club Med, Binta Ria”
What else? It was all about the food we had during our 5-day Bintan Island trip! :) Just to share with you some of these unique and luscious appetizers…
1) Chicken fillet in sliced cucumber roll, and the plating, complete with pineapple cubes as well as some sort of pineapple juice reduction as its sauce. Texture of chicken was juicy and the cucumber yielded a refreshing crunch to it. The pineapple cubes also complement well with the chicken cucumber rolls. Overall taste was not over powering, but enough to fill your palate pleasantly. I thought the dish looked easy to assemble it at home, I should just try to replicate my version of it one day. :)read more
No cooking tonight. I was helping out the MP’s Block Visit this evening, followed by a Resident Block Party, with food and fruits. During the block visit by MP, I acted as the writer, to jot down feedback and requests raised by the residents addressing to certain government department, e.g. HDB, Town Council, LTA, and etc.
MP, a Member of Parliament, is a representative elected by the people voters of an electoral district to the parliament. In Singapore, MP usually conducts Meet-the-People session once a week and/ or a house-to-house visit will be scheduled within his/ her constituency every now and then. The RC, Resident Committee, of its estate will also organise block parties/ activities for the residents.read more
“My favorite snack, the fried sweet potato balls on skewer. “
$, $2 for 4 balls
I remembered that deep fried sweet potato ball stalls were easily found on the street side, when I was young. However, these local snacks were tapering out in this urban city.
There was a stall, The Sweet Potato Place, newly opened at Level 1 in Thomson Plaza, selling Taiwan sweet potatoes and some concoctions. When I first visited the stall, these sweet potato balls did not really catch my eyes. What had enticed me was the deep-fried sweet potato spring roll ($2 for 3). This light bite looked really appealing to me for the fact that it was filled with sweet potato.read more
“Our 2-day FOOD Trip in Malacca..was so recharging!”
We visited Malacca over the weekend.
This was our second short getaway within the year. From SG to Malacca, it took around 3 hours bus journey.
I loved vacations!
As a self claimed traveler, not so a tourist (><), we always had our extensive research and detailed itinerary planned out, for every single trip, long and short, and aimed to fulfil each and every programme set out in the excel sheet. Without disappointment, we indeed fulfilled all our planning, for food and visits. Certainly, it was the food that matters the most to me! :) The best experience from this trip was gotten to try Malacca local delicacies and specialites food like Chendol, Satay Celup and Chicken rice ball.. Good old yummy food!read more
