The Roti Prata House

The Roti Prata House is always packed during late night and especially the weekends for those craving for *southern Indian street food cuisine. How do I know?

Thus born the legend of … Continue reading

Golden Mile Fish Porridge & Seafood Soup

Macro photography refers to a finished photograph of a subject at greater than life size and boy am I seriously addicted to it! The subjects I take are usually insects (I’m not so into water droplets and flowers but I would love to capture some frogs and snakes on digital film). I don’t know why … Continue reading

Lao Jiang Superior Soup – 老江一品粿条汤

After my macro photography session was cut short, we drove to Bukit Timah Food Centre but most stalls had closed shop for the day. We decided to go to Cheong Chin Nam Road where there’s quite a number of eateries that’s guaranteed to open till late. The single lane (used to be able to park … Continue reading
