85 Redhill Teochew Fishball Noodle

Vanessa and I wanted to eat fish ball noodle the other day but the stall was closing up when we arrived at the food court. “Come early, tomorrow!” The uncle said. Spoilt with the many good choices readily available in Singapore’s food scene, sagacious diners have become exacting about food and when we are in … Continue reading

Delicious Boneless Chicken Rice @ Katong Shopping Centre

Keef has mentioned he liked Delicious Boneless Chicken Rice in Katong Shopping Centre when I returned to Singapore in 2012.

Birds Of Different Feathers – Part 4

Birding seemed to be in fashion for the past few weeks even among the noob birders because we had several charming visitors!

Toa Payoh Housing Estate 大巴窑

A good part of my younger days were spent growing up in Toa Payoh Lorong 2 when my maternal grandma (pictured below) lived there.
