Disney naturally, Food & Fun Place for your Family and Kids!

“Gourmet Paradise, purely for the children. The Disney naturally at Anchor Point, Singapore.”

This place could be considered as a nice weekend spot for the family especially with toddlers/ children age ranged from 2 to 12 year old. A place you may like to bring your children for a kid-entertainment filled eating place.

Even the ceiling is decorated with photos of Mickey’s family.

A very large LCD screen showing famous cartoon with daily change of cartoon titles. Children may enjoy themselves with the cartoon while having their meal. Of course, not so good for the digestion, but what’s so big deal for having some indiscipline on the table once in a blue moon (smiling)?? read more

Sweet Potatoes From The Sweet Potato Place

“Healthy Sweet Potato”

$, about $3 – $3.50 per regular-size potato
I tried their sweet potatoes, finally!

Yes, the sweet potatoes were sold by weight. I couldn’t remember how much per gram, but one regular-sized (length less than 5” while diameter less than 2”) sweet potato cost me $3.20.

I bought one piece each of the yellow and purple fleshes.

It tasted so good while eating it hot, but not so when it was cooled. I found the texture too-soft which became a little paste-like consistency in the palate when cooled. read more

Tropical Fruits Durian Block Party

“Block Party for the Singapore Residents”

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

Taiwan Deep Fried Sweet Potato Balls

“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
